Amnesty for millions of illegals, anyone in congress that opposes it will be labled a "racist".

Yeah, there was an article on here yesterday about Bush giving the Social Security goons the green light to send money to our Mexican friends. In Mexico, not the illegals that are here. You gotta love the quest for the Latino vote!

YUP...they secretly wanted the "Face of Reparations" to be the hillbilly from Mississippi! They overplayed their hand...they secretly were trying to get more doofus Republicans to stand behind Lott, to be tarred and feathered too...the Dems weren't expecting the Republicans to live UP to their principles and values.

William Bennett has the moral authority to lead this party and when he quietly asked Lott to step aside...Lott had NO choice!

Aren't there any Conservative leaders with the guts enough to denounce Sharpton and his race hustling pimps for what they really are?

Hey, fellow FReepers, every party and every cause needs a punching bag. Instead of continuing to throw round-houses at each other, why don't y'all gang up on me . . . BECAUSE YOU'RE ALL RIGHT.

Sorta.

That's what you all needed, right? A virgin FReeper to join in on your ongoing battle? But as a newbie I'm accustomed to getting flamed so fire away. My tush is charrrrr-broiled and weather-proofed. Have at it.

I've been trying to watch the names of posters the past week or so. I "think" I've got a good read on TLB, cynicom, ewing, and smith. Sorry, zing, you ain't cussed me out yet . . . or at least it wasn't so bad that you singed any hairs.

Some of you think the conservatives who wanted Lott to go are spineless cowards who have done irreperable harm to their causes. Others didn't think too highly of Lott in the first place and weren't sad to see him go.

Franklin D. Roosevelt said this . . . A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs, who has never learned to walk. Not flattering, huh? But I had an old English professor a hundred years ago who had a fetish for researching why people said what they're semi-famous for saying. According to him, Roosevelt said this because he couldn't "peg" conservatives with a single label as he could liberals.

Conservatives confounded the sh*t out of Roosevelt. And that's why we're kicking A$$ and taking names now. We've got the moral-imperative wing of conservatives . . . the "base" as it's defined today . . . and we've got the moderates . . . usually called the "swing votes" . . . all taking cover under the conservative umbrell and they usually agree on the major issues. Some just agree a bit more strenuously than others.

That's why I say both warring parties are right. I'm only sticking my nose in it because I've also see some of you arguing on the same side before . . . and it's starting to get a bit personal. We, newbie FReepers and conservatives and, most importantly, the conservative cause, need all of you. Debate is great, hell that's how idiots like me learn. But trashing a fellow conservative because he calls something light gray that you swear is white as cotton does no one any good.

So flame the damn newbie sticking his nose into your business for awhile. Hell, I'm used to it. Besides, I'm going to lunch and maybe you'll all be tuckered out when I get back.

These DemocRATS claiming victore had better enjoy their short-lived celebration. They are in for a serious thrashing for the next two years, through the Presidential Election of 2004.

That's simple to explain: DemocRATS don't HAVE principles and values!

So you think Lott was a man of steel then?

From David Schippers’ book - Sellout

Republican Leaders Punt … In the very first meeting Hyde and the House Managers had with Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott to discuss the trial’s procedure, Lott told Hyde right up front:

“Henry, you’re not going to dump this garbage on us.”

And they still have 997 more FBI files to go.

FBI files have nothing to do with it.

No, im not the one who appears to have an undying love for Lott like Carville and his ilk like yourself.

Well, there goes your arguement down the drain. Anyone who's been here for even a short time knows that TLBSHOW and others who agree with him are NOT "lovers of Carville and his ilk". Why must you lie?

It's pathetic.

It is painfully obvious that liberals tried to call off the dogs and "embrace" Lott after the republicans were making a strong effort to rid Lott before becoming a whipping boy. I wasnt calling TLBSHOW a liberal like he has done to me and many others. I was saying he held that same perceived view of Lott as Carvile and some other liberals who suddenly love Lott and have open arms for him after Lotts apology (bending over on BET)

Well said! I have no flames to send your way...maybe next time! :) This is my favorite quote:

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs, who has never learned to walk.

Looks like we could all use some walking lessons. Thanks for the post!

Sharpton sure gets dizzy chasing his tail; whether he has one or not or course.

This foolish self-serving loudmouth fancies himself a potential canidate for president I understand. I'll watch him run, but I am only into doing so to enjoy the specticle of his political demise.

Sharpton makes Jesse Jackass look conservative. He's way too ghetto to ever be accepted in mainstream America as a viable candidate for president, just like James Carville is too much of a redneck cracker for the voters in upstate New York.

Yes you were, and I'm sure he probably did the same .

Stop it, both of you, and everyone else. It does nothing to further the debate (IMHO).

Two points...

1. Lott NEVER had the brains or stomach to be Senate Majority Leader... He was/is a pansy. I am grateful he is gone. Just too bad he groveled so low and kissed too much ass over his "statements"...

2. I love it when Sharpton speaks...
By simply being given a speaking platform - Sharpton proves his party's, his follower's and his own absolute stupidty.
He is a certifiable lying, rabble rousing, riot instigating dumb ass...

RUN Al RUN.....
Even if I have to send money to keep Sharpton in the race, I shall..
Semper Fi
