  1. McCain has burned too many conservative bridges to get the nomination, I believe. I would support him over Osama given the choice although I disagree with him on some issues. :whistle:
  2. What has he ever done besides give a speech at the Democratic National Convention? I hardly think that qualifies him to be the Commander in Chief. If you look at his two year voting record in the senate, he's just another liberal. :whistle: Hillary would be wise to offer him a spot on the ticket, if he's willing. :turned:
  3. Maybe CNN is embedded with the terrorists! :wacko: I know all they want to film and report on is how badly we are getting attacked and how our soldiers are being killed. How about a success story once in a while? Oh, that wouldn't fit their anti-war, anti-Bush agenda! :whistle:
  4. I was thinking Garrison looked pretty good for a playoff spot after the fight they put up against Tatum . . . boy I was wrong!!! :messbaby: I was a wake up call for the Eagles. We all have to keep the faith . . . at least you know Tatum will make the playoffs, and it's a whole new season starting that week!!! I'm rooting for whichever three playoff teams represent 19AA! :w00t:
  5. Is Glenn injured? I turned on the game half way through the 1st quarter and I haven't seen him yet. :shrug:
  6. There is already another post about the Foley matter. If you want to talk about Foley, go there. I posted THIS article as a reminder that there is corruption on both sides of the isle . . . JUST TO BE FAIR! :whistle:
  7. I totally agree! I hate the one Celina uses as well. The game should be about the fans cheering their team, not some artificial noise maker operated by some nut! :w00t:

  9. Hillary's brother targeted in new investigation demand Judicial Watch wants to know if there's connection between pardon, payments Posted: October 18, 2006 1:00 a.m. Eastern By Bob Unruh © 2006 WorldNetDaily.com A new wrinkle in the "Pardongate" scandal that embroiled the Clintons just after former President Bill Clinton issued a series of pardons, and then relinquished the nation's highest office: Hillary Rodham Clinton's brother is being investigated for a "loan" from some of those pardoned. Judicial Watch, the Washington-based public interest group that investigates government corruption, said it has asked for a formal investigation of the payments from Vonna Jo Gregory to Anthony Rodham. According to Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, the request to the U.S. Department of Justice seeks an investigation into activities involving Hillary Clinton, Anthony Rodham, former President Clinton and Gregory, the former owner of the carnival company United Shows International. Records show that in March 2000, former President Clinton pardoned Vonna Jo Gregory, and her husband, Edgar Gregory, Jr., for a 1982 bank fraud conviction. Judicial Watch said starting around the time the pardon was issued, Hillary Clinton's brother, Anthony Rodham received $107,000 in "loans" from United Shows International. The first payment of $10,000 was on May 10, 2000, and other payments ranging up to $15,000 followed almost monthly into 2001, with a final payment of $2,500 on Feb. 12, 2002, according to court records. The company later filed for bankruptcy, and the "loans" apparently never were repaid. Edgar Gregory, Jr., died a short time later. But Michael Collins, a court-appointed trustee for the Eastern District of Virginia who is handling the United Shows International's finances, now has sought repayment from Rodham and won a default judgment in a Nashville bankruptcy court. "There is now sufficient reason … for the U.S. Department of Justice to launch an investigation into Mr. Rodham's unlawful pardon brokerage activities," Fitton wrote in a letter to Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher. "It is … apparent that the reason for the payment of 'loans' to Mr. Rodham by United Shows and Edgar and Vonna Jo Gregory was a quid pro quo to influence President Clinton to issue the pardons." The bankruptcy proceeding resulted in an order that Rodham is not allowed to access about $142,000 he had in his bank account at the time, Judicial Watch said. "In light of this new information on Hillary's brother, the Justice Department needs to finally get serious about this scandal," Fitton said. "No one should get away with selling pardons." The former president granted 140 pardons and commuted 36 sentences during the last days of his presidency in 2000. Many were convicted felons, and Judicial Watch has alleged some paid large fees to Clinton family members and associates. Judicial Watch started its investigation of the claims in 2001. Sen. Clinton's other brother, Hugh Rodham, also allegedly received $400,000 in payments from convicted felons who received pardons, Judicial Watch said. According to a report by United Press International, the bankruptcy trustee has attempted to garnish Rodham's wages, and his lawyer has sought to have that cancelled. The bankruptcy trustee request is for the return of $107,000 plus $46,034 in interest from Rodham, 51, who "received the benefit of the loans without making any repayment," according to a web report called Captain's Quarters.
  10. I wonder if she will ever "own up" to fibbing about being a Yankee's fan all of her life? :whistle:
  11. Finally admits she was not named for famous mountain climber :whistle: Posted: October 17, 2006 10:39 a.m. Eastern © 2006 WorldNetDaily.com Sir Edmund Hillary Years after alternative media pointed out the virtual impossibility, Sen. Hillary Clinton finally has admitted she was not named for the famous conqueror of Mount Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary. The New York Times, which repeated the claim as fact in a story just one week ago, reported Sen. Clinton's campaign issued a correction yesterday. "It was a sweet family story her mother shared to inspire greatness in her daughter, to great results I might add," said spokeswoman Jennifer Hanley. For more than a decade, Sen. Clinton's informal biography repeated the story, and it was recounted in former President Bill Clinton's 2004 autobiography, "My Life." The problem with the tale, however, is one of timing. Sir Edmund and his Sherpa guide, Tenzing Norgay, became known to the world only in 1953, after becoming the first men to reach Everest's summit. Sen. Clinton was born in 1947. Nevertheless, Clinton recounted to the press her meeting with Sir Edmund in 1995, during an Asian tour, in which she told the mountain climber how her mother had named her. "It had two l's, which is how she thought she was supposed to spell Hillary," she said. "So when I was born, she called me Hillary, and she always told me it's because of Sir Edmund Hillary." In 1947, Sir Edmund was an unknown beekeeper, but Clinton had explained her mother read about him in a publication while pregnant and liked the name. The Oct. 10 Times story – about Sen. Clinton's mother moving in to the family's house in Washington – stated "her mother named her for the mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary."
  12. You must have slept through the eight years before GWB took office! :whome:
  13. Garrison is worn down already due to injuries and lack of depth. After the Tatum game, I was thinking they could handle anyone else in the district. If everyone was healthy (wishful thinking), I believe they would compete for a playoff spot. If ands and buts were candy and nuts, we would all have a merry Christmas! Garrison played the worst defensive game Friday against Timpson I have seen them play in 25 years. They seemed like a beaten dog licking his wounds. I had a feeling only 20 or so players on the varsity was going to be their downfall. I just thought they would hold out till toward the end of the season before they wore down. I was wrong. With their enrollment numbers down and so few players out for football, their only salvation may be realignment and reclassification to 1A. I was told Friday Garrison is now the smallest 2A school in the state.
  14. . . . another retread! MLB needs new blood! :whistle:
  15. Oh, now I get it . . . it's Karl Rove's fault Harry Reid is a crook! :rofl:
  16. socialism is socialism . . . bad for America . . . period! :w00t:
  17. I have to strongly disagree with him about the middle class shrinking. Our economy is booming and good jobs are being created, more and more people are buying houses than ever before. Iif anything, middle class Americans have never had so much opportunity. Prosperity won't just jump in your lap, you've got to prepare yourself and look for opputunity. If you work hard and prepare yourself, you can do quite well in America today. If you want to talk about poverty increasing, I believe you can directly attribute it to socialism and people expecting government to provide jobs, housing, healthcare and all happiness to them on a silver platter. Socialists and liberals have created an entitlement mentality where more and more people are increasingly growing dependant on government to care for them. Politicians like this guy are what's wrong with America!!! :whistle:
  18. Kinne isn't in the same league as Mallett . . . in my opinion :whistle:
  19. Don't kid yourself, Troup will go by the wayside . . . just like everyone else in 19AA . . . trust me! :whistle:
  20. Don't expect the same "feeding frenzy" for him to resign we have been seeing from the liberal media and wacked out liberal dimocrats the past week going after Dennis Hastert! :shrug: Nooooo . . . . there is no double standard! :whistle:
  21. Newton is a step up from New Boston or Jefferson, believe me! :whistle:
