January 29, 2014

For sports fans, statistics can be a source of fun and happiness. The following statistics are unlikely to make anyone happy, however, and they certainly aren’t fun....

Yeh that's it. Let's lower the minimum wage and see how that works for the economy, like Michelle Bachman suggested.

Once again Democrats showed their total ignorance or blatant outright LIES by scurrying like rats to Twitter to announce they want minimum wage hikes higher than the very low rates when Ronald Reagan was in congress. Bwahahaha....

Problem?

Ronald Reagan NEVER was in Congress!

Oh just when you think the DNC cannot get DUMBER...they prove us wrong!

Dems don't know HISTORY!

Liberals project onto everybody else their own creepy obsession with the color of people's skin.

Liberals go to bed at night with race on their minds and they wake up in the morning with race on their minds, and they believe this is normal for everybody.

Uh, if I dare say my favorite cookie is white macadamia would you call me a racist again? Am confused as you lefties refer the 'racist term' to everything from our white painted houses to our preference over red licorice to black licorice and even more absurd things than that. FYI: doesn't hurt my feeling if you do. Not a liberal; names don't make me run to mommy like the left.

I'm a firm believer in " don't ask don't tell" you dont ask me if I'm gay, and I won't tell you your gay? No wait that's not it. It's you don't tell me your gay, and I won't, tell you I'm not gay. Yeh that's it.

@joefromelkins Thanks, I'm not easily intimidated. The truth be known, I have little confidence in either of our political parties. If I had to choose I would say I lean more towards the right than the left. I just cant stand for corporate greed, or government corruption/waste. And I like clean air, and water. Better wages for the working man would be nice too. Just keepin it real.

You didn't show me proof of anything, I didn't even read half of your comment about racict YouTube videos "redefining racism" or whatever? I didnt say you were racist, I said your comments had a racist, or political undertone. You accused me of being hateful ,and negative. Well aint that the pot callin the kettle black? I assure you im anything but hateful. I respect everyone, until they give me a reason not to. I'm not going to sit here and debate. I've got better things to do. If your not a racist, then accept my apology. That is all.

I guess that bit of TRUTH really hurt the left in here. They 'ignored' it and refuse to comment on it because it PROVES how racist the left are.

I showed you PROOF. Heresmy2cents still hasn't provided me with any PROOF; just FALSE ACCUSATIONS!

@Heresmy2cents: So where's your PROOF I ever made a comment that would make anyone think I was racist?

I deserve an answer since YOU stated I was!

Come on; ANSWER!

continued:

and the racist incident mentioned by Gratz in her press release has been covered locally by the DETROIT NEWS; but not mentioned on ANY national liberal news outlet. MSNBC won't respond to Ms. Gratz. Oh so surprising the real racists ignore the truth!

Response to 2cents' accusations: Matthews’ reworking of the dictionary was not lost on Jennifer Gratz of the DC-based civil rights group XIV Foundation (In case you are not familiar with XIV Foundation, their name refers to the 14th Amendment and they focus on “liberty and justice for all.”) From the XIV Foundation’s press release: After watching the segment, Gratz remarked, “No one group has a monopoly on racism. And to suggest otherwise is a ridiculous, terrible message to broadcast to children and adults alike on national TV.” As just one example, Gratz pointed to an incident that occurred on Monday where black activists delivered Oreo cookies to the office of Detroit’s Emergency Manager, a recent controversial appointment by Michigan Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. “April Fool’s Day or not, delivering Oreo cookies to black politicians that you happen to disagree with is a disgusting act.” Source: YouTube or ****theblaze****

From Merriam-Webster dictionary: 1: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.

2: racial prejudice or discrimination. --rac-ist noun or adjective

NOW; the liberals definition according to MSNBC'S Chris Matthews (Redefining Racism): Mr. Matthews seems to believe that racism is strictly limited to white people. Seriously, Matthews defined racism thusly, “the belief that one race – whites – should rule all others.” This redefining of racism came during a classic Matthews rant about something Rush Limbaugh said about President Obama inspiring Rev. Luis Leon’s strange Easter sermon comments. You can go to YouTube or other sites to get the video of this liberal rant!

Heresmy2cents; Everything i have read that you have posted has some political or racist undertone.

Name ONE article that shows I have commented on that proves a 'racist' undertone? Just one. You cannot. It only exists in the liberal mind; in this case YOURS! You are good at throwing out accusations without PROOF. You are treading on dangerous ground!

As for my comments having 'political' tones....bwahahaha.....uh, the entire InterMountain is "political" in the majority of it's reporting. Duh! EVERY comment is political from you and everyone else in here. So I guess I am guilty of that; whatever that means.

Whining when your argument is poorly received isn't mature. Says a lot about the commenter though. Yeah, we're probably always going to differ in opinions; so I suggest you might want to get used to it. The entire world doesn't agree with me or YOU! I don't 'whine' about it though and yell, racism; because I know what racism is; apparently you don't.

@Here....maybe those mysterious posts where you were 'seeing both sides' of an issue...were somehow deleted as I've yet to see one.

@truthseeker you can't even give a girl a pat on the back for winning an award for growing a big cabbage. Everything i have read that you have posted has some political or racist undertone. So if you think im the one thats hateful or incompassionate then you are delusional. Notice how you're never wrong, or you gave an excuse for everything. But no answers? I know it's a secret you wouldn't want anyone stealing you're good ideas.

@hildyhayhurst I appreciate your comment I'm not trying to be a hero or change anyone's mind on the issues. Its all here in black and white, we can all see where everyone stands on the issues by the comments that they post. We can all see who's compassionate and who's racist. I'm just a normal down to earth guy, standing up for the working man, and trying to live my life. Don't let anyone intimidate you, you're free to comment just like everyone else is. Thanks

And for your information I'm posting all these comments on my phone so I have accident posted on occasion but I try to make corrections. I don't have an Xbox and I have not played video games in a long time . I also admit when I make a mistake. Or point out that I do not claim to know all of the fact on every issue. With that being said, Can you to point out any comments that would make you think that I'm a liberal or a conservative? I look at both side of every issue I'm not held back by political views of any party or anone else. I'm smart enough to think for myself.
