Live from Congress!
Starring in the State of the Union Civility Sham Wow!
Featuring Joe Biden as Happy Clappy!
And John Boehner as the Angry White Man Who wants to Kill Old People, Take Away a Woman's Right to Choose, Enslave Blacks, Deport All Hispanics, Cut Taxes for the Rich, Starve the Poor, Take Away Their Healthcare and Privatize Social Security and Medicare.
We made this change awhile back to increase performance.
yes it is ...
It’s frustrating to have a “Live” thread inaccessible until the following day, which was my experience.
Out of adversity... triumph! Good work John. Thank you for all you do.
When the camera zoomed out just a bit to show more flag behind him, he looked like he was jaundiced and heavily made up in an attempt to cover it. I didn't watch the "campaign spew session" (aka: SoTU), just saw a few of the following rehash clips. His weight and pallor makes him look ill.
The Republicans were foolish to go along with the “bipartisan” seating nonsense. They needed to show America that the new House majority they elected was united and committed to opposing the spending madness of the President and Democrat-controlled Senate. And they needed to have the public clearly see the Democrat seals clapping like fools while Obama spouted about more spending. The GOP will never learn and Boehner is showing all signs of becoming a typical GOP “compromiser” (i.e. capitulator).
I knew FR would be moribund, it usually is when there’s a live thread on an event of some significance. So I opted to avoid the echo chamber where functionality is inversely proportional to the participation.
And instead I watched a WW2 flick on youtube.
Guess what? It was the slowest load ever. I can still see the whirling dots that came on every 90 seconds.
Just goes to show, you cannot escape destiny.
You were zotted. You just don’t know it. :)
This is Rush Limbaugh’s take on the GOP getting duped into the seating deception:
“Look, folks, this is not a good sign. It isn’t fatal, don’t misunderstand here, but it’s an illustration of what one incident — (unintelligible) — hell, I don’t know. Things can happen overnight in politics and totally upset and change the game, i.e., Tucson. A totally, by the way, nonpolitical event that has been converted into a political event that somehow the Republicans need to go out of their way and say, “Hey, hey, hey, wasn’t us, and to prove it we’ll sit next to you guys in the State of the Union and we’ll go along with this Obama moving to the center stuff.” But what’s the symbolism of sitting together? All it is is a trick that’s been dreamed up by the Democrats to make sure that the vast Republican majority is not seen during the relative standing ovations or lack thereof. So the optics will not show this massive Republican majority in the House of Representatives. So what is it symbolic of? Well, it’s symbolic of the GOP playing along, symbolic of the Republicans not wanting to show distinctions, not wanting to draw on the differences.”
Thanks for the ping; post. I didn’t watch, listen to, or read anything about the POSOTUS and his SOTU but I know this thread is a good one...so I am bumping it.
What I want to know is...did everyone enjoy the whack-a-mole pop-up speech?
Oh, and don’t we all enjoy DOJ’s Blogsquad DOS attacks? Come one now. These attacks are important in the expression of noblesse oblige free speech, no?
You said it best! :)
As my computer slows during a live thread, I, also, notice the time between posts increases. When there are two to three minutes between posts, I know it ain’t good.
Wow! I love that one! Well done!
I know it’s not really funny, but while border security was being discussed, the camera lingered on John McCain and he looked very uncomfortable. Kind of like each word was a little slap to his face. We almost fell out of our chairs howling with laughter at his reaction. He looked like he’d do anything to make that camera go away.
Did not know that. I just liked what he had to say last night.
“Featuring Joe Biden as Happy Clappy!”
Was Slow Joe sober?
John, it appears that you were able to tweak something and I can now read my PINGS, but I still can not read my FREEPMAIL, nor my PREFERENCES.
Exclusive video footage of last nights SOTU address. Who would have thought high speed bullet trains are the answer to all our problems?!
Monorail! Monorail! Monorail! Monorail!
You would be surprised what I know. :-)
I doubt it. You’ve been here a while. I’m still a newb.
Agree with Rush. We have many more RINOS in Congress than conservatives, and last night proved it.
After FR crashed, I sat in my recliner and promptly dozed off as Obooboo started droning.
Guess I didn’t miss much.
Gosh it was that simple all along. Thank you very much for your reply.
What can I say,the ones in the party who do all the heavy lifting are all female.!!!
ITs all focus tested telprpomter BS. Custom tailered to keep his numbers up in hopes of re-election.
All this guy does is run for office and fund raise. Absolutely the worst potus ever.
Ain't that just the male-humiliating truth.
Palin, Bachmann, Noem...
Ever since FreeRepublic crashed the early part of January I have not been able to access my FreepMails nor my Preferences. Sometimes I couldn't even get my postings.
Is there some setting in my computer I need to find in order to be able to read my FreepMail and set my Preferences or is there something FreeRepublic needs to reset for me?
I would appreciate all the help I can get........Thank You
