Is it physically possible for her to “smite” anyone?
Pretty bad infestation.
Love your holiday-themed ZOT graphics. LOL
thanks, for the pings. ;-)

Thank you, darlin’!
They're like cockroaches. Just when you think you've gotten the last one you open a cupboard door and out drop a dozen more.
This will get much worse before it gets better, probably culminating in a WRong Paul Purge thread.
Post quote of the day.
Good to see you ol'timer.
Does hubby know abut this?
I dunno, I’m pretty smitten by her... ;]
Abut = about.
I was hoping for a Bud Lite :)
“Ron Paul isn’t a conservative. He’s a libertarian”
Well he may have Libertarian leanings but last I saw he still had an “R” after his name. And espouses conservative fiscal and domestic policies plus he wants us out of all the world police actions we’ve stuck our noses into. I guess he just doesn’t fit your definition of conservative which is:
1. for the war on terror and locking up people without a trail for as long as those in power want and having little old ladies sexually assaulted by TSA at the airport
2. for the war on drugs and allowing the police to seize your property and then making you prove that it wasn’t the result of illegal activity and having SWAT teams blow away marines (there is never an ex-marine ;) ) in Arizona
3. for giving lip service to supporting Israel while pressuring them to give in to terrorists in yet another misguided land for peace deal
4. Declaring most forcefully that they are for “sound fiscal policy” while taking bribes (campaign contributions) from the Wall Street bankers and bailing out insolvent cronies with your money to the tune of a few $ trillion
5. Being the world policeman and fighting meaningless “actions” all across the globe while beating their chest to prove how manly they are
There is a whole range of conservative ideas but you seem to think that only those the fit your narrow definition of conservative can claim that label.
Are you not reading this thread?
Two other Paultards have got the zot on this thread so far. Are you trying to be the third?
I can’t say that Paul would be worse than Obama, but we can do better. I mean I would do better than Obama and I have ZERO experience. You would probably end up on Mount Rushmore if we elected you President.
Busy day in Zotland! The Paulbots are coming out of the woodwork! LOL!
Guess the Viking Kitties delivered his answer.
I think what we are seeing here is a full blown war between the neocon wing of the republican party and the paleocon wing. While Paul is not really a paleocon, his foreign policy is to crazy even for paleocons he is very close on domestic policy and spending. Sadly the neocons (Rove, Bush, Newt, Mitt) are in complete control so traditional conservatives (small/honest government conservatives, paleocons) are being purged. The ruling class does not take the threat of small honest constitutional government lightly. I personally don’t think Paul should be president, his world view is anti Israel, 19th century and this is not the 19th century however on a number of issues Paul makes a lot of sense. The attacks on him and his supporters are IMHO way over the top.
From God's lips to your post.
What chafes me the most is that after so many election cycles they're still so arrogant and/or blind as to be doing it again.
Ron Paul is NOT "one of us". He is a crazy Anti-Semitic nut job that should have been shunned by the GOP long ago.
Paul’s views on illegal immigration are along the lines of “how can it be illegal?”
Now we can go with RonPaul, Kinzua, and rockitapps to mine cheese from the moon!
I was a California Libertarian for years. Didn’t go for the dope thing, but other than that, yeah.
Moved to Texas, to Ron Paul’s district. Met some of the racists with whom he associated. Lots of southern partisans who felt that wrong side won the “Late Unpleasantness Between the States”. Couldn’t get served with my family in restaurants where he had functions.
This was in the 1990s, kids. By contrast, the Democrats worked hard at getting illegals to vote, and the Republicans thought that mixed race marriages were unremarkable.
I agree. But he is screwing OUR side, not theirs. That’s what I meant.
Ron Paul is that crazy old uncle we all have that lives in the attic and shows up at family reunions and once every 5 years says something sane..and all the little kids are afraid of him...
True that he is screwing our side and giving ammo to the Lying Leftist Media to paint us with a broad brush as crazy over-the-top nut jobs.
LOL - good description!
I suppose it is the way one looks at things.As for me he makes a lot of sense but America is so tied up it cannot change its foreign policy now.
Ah yes, racist newspapers: it is “racist” to acknowledge that black people commit most of the crime in our major cities.
// rolls eyes.
(1) Young people are not really enthusiastic about fighting and paying for foreign wars.
(2) Young people think the military should be used to defend America, not as a tool for constantly meddling in the affairs of foreign countries.
(3) Young people believe that constant military and diplomatic interventions in the Middle East have sowed animosity toward the United States.
(4) Young people believe that Israel is more than capable of defending itself.
The American electorate is changing. Every two years there are more Millennial voters and fewer elderly voters. Young people don’t like American foreign policy. It will inevitably be changed through sheer demographics.
It is the over 45 crowd exclusively that believes Ron Paul is crazy. If you are under 45, you are more likely to believe that Newt Gingrich is crazy.
Unlike Gingrich, Paul doesn’t support a path to citizenship. He is also a fierce and reliable opponent of the welfare state.
Gutting the welfare state would do more to kill illegal immigration than almost anything because it would shut down the remittances system.
Really? Which young people? And who elected you their mouthpiece?
Ron Paul has an enormous following among young people. Anyone who has been to CPAC can tell you that. Millennials and Gen X’ers dislike the foreign wars and especially resent being forced to pay for them.
Those of us who are under 45 and who regularly use Facebook and Twitter can attest to the relative size of Ron Paul’s following compared to other candidates.
Newt Gingrich’s followers are almost exclusively over the age of 45. Ron Paul’s fan club is heavily under the age of 45.
Banning people doesn’t change the fact that the Boomers are getting older and comprise an ever shrinking percentage of the electorate whereas every four years there are more Gen X’er and Millennial voters.
Fighting that trend is like Caligula’s declaration of war on Poseidon. The globalist foreign policy of the post-WW2/post-Cold War era is doomed.
If it doesn’t die in this election cycle, it will die in 2016 or 2020. Paul’s surge since 2008 reflects that consensus among younger voters.
Would those be the same enlightened, infallible young voters who voted for 0bama in droves?
You are my type of gal. I just finished one too.
Scotch sounds good!
Why is Iowa going for RP? He’s a complete nut case.
From the Des Moines Register posted about 6 hours ago:
“Paul responded by saying he supported the move to pursue the Sept. 11 terrorists.
He also clarified his stance on 9/11, saying the U.S. policies not its people were to blame for the attacks.
They didnt come here because youre free and prosperous they dont go to Sweden and Switzerland, Paul said. The 9/11 Commission said that the motivation was the fact that we were over there and we had been over there for a long time.”
He is not blaming America for the 9/11 attacks, he is rightly pointing out that because we choose to be involved in the ME and base our military over there we became a target for terrorism. It’s not a hard concept to understand, stick your nose in a hornets nest and you’ll get stung sooner or later. He has also said that he supported going after the terror groups that did this, just not the “nation building” that has caused us to be in Afghanistan for the past 10 years now.
I’m thinking that “irrevelant” might be coming to be your middle name, eh?
“ok, I dont keep up enough, who is cut and run?
You’re trying to be too cute by half; NOT a good sign...
“Have you ever seen a bully pick on someone bigger and stronger than him?”
Yep, once on YouTube a coupla months ago, until the kid got fed up, picked up the little punk and body-slammed him on the pavement! HAW Your point is well said though.
This is about the fourth time you’ve popped up claiming to be ignorant of common knowledge here, then begging for forgiveness of your trespasses. That dog won’t hunt dude!
