It is amazing how quickly the race baiters have begun pullulating the seeds of discontent in the Obozo low information supporters.

There's been a lot of talk from Holder and the rest about the "Stand Your Ground" law, despite the fact that the law is not relevant to the Zimmerman case.

They said when Obama was elected that an unpecedented era of racial harmony would pullulate in the Nation; instead, the Nation suppurates with unprecedented racial discord, fueled by the Race Baiter-in-Chief!

Not one thing that Obama promised has come true: racial harmony, stronger economy, more jobs, transparency? And each day we learn that Obamacare, his singular legislative "success," doesn't do the things he said it would, and does do the things he said it wouldn't.

No, it's a thread about a time-challenged tow-truck operator.

Try as I may, the old bean seeds I have been trying to grow have failed to pullulate at an acceptable level. These seeds only germinate at a 30 to 40% rate, which is quite discouraging.

I saw a weed sprouting up in the flower bed, and I said I’d better pulluearly, because it’s much harder to pullulate.

Based on the events of late with the Zimmerman acquittal, I learn that the more educated a person is, the less likely that the liberal whining shall pullulate it’s discontent in that person. Hence, low-information voters are so easily led to mob rule.

If only the obvious common sense reality, as articlulated by The Nuge, would begin to pullulate across the landscape in the wake of the Zimmerman verdict.

Obama, Holder and the rest play to the low-information voter. Those of us who, unlike Rachel Jeantel, can actually write (and *read) a sentence (that includes a **verb) are not the targets of their misdirection.

*even if written in cursive

** From a recent interview on CNN:
“The jury, they see their fact. No offense to the jury, they old, that’s old school people,” Jeantel said. “We in a new school, our generation, my generation.”

Use some verbs, Rachel. “They ARE old.” “We ARE in a new school.”

Pullulate

Pullulate sounds like our late night dentistry shop located above the Hot Rood Garage. Their motto is “No Teef, No Grief”.
