  2. 'THE BIG BOO" Fri Sep 09 2005 10:30:28 ET Drudgereport.com The chart topping hip hop rapper star who used a network hurricane fundraiser to charge "George Bush doesn't care about black people" was loudly and lustily booed during last night's NFL kickoff show. The appearance of Kanye West, who was beamed into the Boston stadium via remote from Los Angeles, received a strongly negative response from the crowd. "The boos were thunderous and lasted for much of his number," reports the BOSTON GLOBE. Developing...:w00t:
  3. Like I have said in the past, don't confuse Spunky or Camus with the facts. They just don't fit into their blame game political agenda! They, along with the liberal masses and media, think they are smarter than everyone else and will just continue to sit on their hands and complain and blame everyone under the sun . . . except of course their self righteous dimocrat leaders! :w00t::whistle::w00t: . . . oh and another thing, the levee system is the reason New Orleans sunk below sea level in the first place because it restricted the natural Mississippi delta silt out of N.O. Rebuilding bigger or better levees would only make New Orleans continue to sink. In my opinion, the only thing that should be rebuilt is the seaport and industrial oil related areas. The town and residential areas need to be relocated to higher ground. :w00t:

  6. Nuts who've run this country: William Taft Richard Nixon Dwight Eisenhower Lyndon B. Johnson Grover Cleveland I could go on. :) Richard Nixon and Eisenhower were very effective presidents and very intelligent. LBJ was a wacked out liberal and along with Slick Willie one of the worst foreign policy presidents in history. NONE of them were as totally loony as you! :w00t:
  7. I bought my wife a Sequoia a couple of years ago. She loves it, but it only gets 17mpg. :banging: I have been riding my motorcycle to work lately if it isn't raining. :smileybanger:
  8. No Spunky, the country is not run by nuts like you. God forbid we ever get to that point because if we ever get to that point America will be in real trouble! :whistle::w00t::whistle::w00t:
  9. Bad news for consumers - KF :w00t: YAHOO News WASHINGTON (AFP) - A global coalition of unions is launching an unprecedented campaign to organize workers around the world at US retail giant Wal-Mart, seeking to bring a new level of globalization to the labor movement. The Wal-Mart campaign was set to be officially launched at a meeting in Chicago Monday of Union Network International (UNI), a group that includes 900 unions in some 140 countries. The campaign aims to draw from labor organizations around the world to pressure Wal-Mart, the world's biggest retailer and largest private company in terms of revenues, and a frequent target of unions for driving down wages as well as prices. Union leaders said they hope to bring collective bargaining or other improvements to the estimated 1.6 million Wal-Mart employees around the world -- possibly even in countries such as China, where western-style unions are non-existent. "Our message is that unions are adapting to a borderless world," says UNI general secretary Philip Jennings. UNI said it "wants to stop the Wal-Martization of the world by bringing together unions in different countries to organize the retail giant's workers and bring them the benefits of collective organization." The global effort on Wal-Mart escalates a longstanding feud with the retailer and the US-based United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), which has accused the retailer of "union-busting" efforts to keep US stores from unionizing. Wal-Mart maintains that it has no official ban on unions, but in a statement on its website argues that in the United States, "we simply do not believe that unionization is right for Wal-Mart." Globally, Wal-Mart spokeswoman Beth Keck said, Wal-Mart "is seen as a model and premier employer in many of the countries around the world." She added: "Our policy is to operate within regulatory and customary business practices everywhere we operate. Our employees can choose whether they want to be union members or not, and overwhelmingly they have not." The union gathering comes as UNI is currently presided by UFCW chief Joe Hansen, who has led campaigns against Wal-Mart in the United States. According to a statement from UFCW, Wal-Mart "pays poverty wages, ships jobs to countries where sweatshops are prevalent and, in the US, shifts enormous health care costs onto taxpayers." Additionally, the union said that because of its size, Wal-Mart is able to drive down wages and benefits, which "has become the new global economic model" followed by many other firms. "This meeting is about creating more effective global unionization," UFCW spokesman Jim Papian said earlier. "It's the only answer to meeting the challenges of the global economy." "We reject the Wal-Mart way and, at Chicago, UNI will be imagining a better future for working people everywhere," added Jennings. "We will work with the UFCW and those unions already established in Wal-Mart in Europe and elsewhere to stop a damaging race to the bottom." According to UNI, Wal-Mart employees have formed unions in Germany, Japan, Brazil and other countries. UNI and the UFCW said they have started a "dialogue" with unions in China on organizing western multinationals there and have set up a liaison office in India, even though there are currently no Wal-Mart stores in that country. Dan Cornfield, a Vanderbilt University professor of sociology, says the plan is a bold effort to reinvigorate the labor movement, and is reminiscent of the 1930s, when unions took on the growing manufacturing sector in the United States. "UNI taking on Wal-Mart is also the classic showdown between David and Goliath," he said. "Wal-Mart is a savvy and resourceful corporation, and its employees represent the type of low-wage workers labor unions have gone after to increase their dwindling membership. Post-World War II, recruiting low-wage workers in the corporate service sector has been where the action is for labor unions."
  10. It was Gomer Pyle (Jim Nabors) who made the citizens arrest, not Don Knots, who played Barney Fife:w00t: :w00t:
  11. Have you ever been there? It's not a bad place at all! :thumbsup:
  12. She is being brainwashed and exploited by the wacked out extreme left wing groups like moveon.org. All they are doing is dishonoring her son and the hundreds of other fallen warriors for selfish political purposes. I'm just glad we aren't dependant on spineless weasels like Spunky to defend us against terrorism. :w00t:
  13. WOAI.com LAST UPDATE: 8/11/2005 12:17:34 PM Posted By: Jim Forsyth Several Texas Congressmen are quietly circulating a proposal to approve 'deputized civilians' as an auxiliary to the U.S. Border Patrol, 1200 WOAI news reported today. The so called "Border Protection Corps" would consist of volunteers who go through a background check and receive training, and would then accompany Border Patrol officers as they search for illegal aliens and drug activity. "These would be volunteers who go through training, don't have a criminal background, who don't use firearms, and who would serve in a backup capacity to the Border Patrol," said U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), who is one of the backers of the proposal. The chief sponsor, U.S. Rep John Culberson (R-Texas) compares the Border Protection Corps with the posses which brought in criminals in the days of the western frontier. Smith says it would make sure that volunteer groups like the Minutemen who have begun border monitoring operations do so legally and receive some training. "Basically, I think it's just born out of the frustration on the part of a lot of people that we're not doing all we can to secure our borders," Smith said. The head of the U.S. Customs and Border Enforcement division of the Department of Homeland Security has made a similar suggestion, which was immediately rejected by DHS officials. Smith and Culberson say civilians who are approved for the Border Protection Corps would be 'deputized' and would provide observation and support to uniformed Border Patrol officers. They would not be allowed to make arrests. :w00t:

We are happy you have found your true love but we don't really want to hear the dialog or see the angst/bliss that goes along with the relationship. We do wish you happiness and a long, meaningful live together though. Just keep in mind, too, that should that relationship not last for eternity the "I love/miss you" posts will. Love Is A Many Splendored Thing for sure ... but please don't spray paint our forums with it.
  15. Peter Jennings was very good at his trade and a very popular news anchor, although he was one of the biggest Clinton apologists on the air. :ermm:
  16. I got lucky and got 710. The only one I was sure about was Berkowitz :w00t:
  17. Somehow we all knew that Spunky would get 10 out of 10 :w00t::whistle::w00t::whistle:
  18. There are a lot of "gaps" in ALL of his "stories" . . . and I do mean stories! :whistle: Maybe she was a mail order bride from Russia? :w00t: :whistle: ;) Let me guess . . . she tutored him in Russian history and was instrumental in helping him earn that Masters Degree in Russian History while graduating Suma Cum Commie :w00t::w00t::w00t:
  19. There are a lot of "gaps" in ALL of his "stories" . . . and I do mean stories! :whistle:
  20. Bill should take the goats and throw in Hillary "The Old Goat" for boot! :)
  21. Please read carefully answer honestly. This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a very important decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous. Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line. You are in Florida, Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury. Suddenly you see a woman in the water. She is fighting for her life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer . . . somehow the woman looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is. It's Hillary Clinton! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take her under . . . forever. You have two options--you can save the life of Hillary Clinton, or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful women. So here's the question, please give your most honest answer: Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the simplicity of black and white? :w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t:
  22. I've spent a lot of time in northern states and that statement is just plain ignorant! :whistle::w00t::whistle::w00t:
  23. Everyone would. Although, in small talk, you have no idea who you're talking to. So that nice clerk at Wal-Mart very well might be a methhead who's abandoned four children and skimming off the registers. I could be wrong, but I don't think FiveOped310 was referring to "Everyone" :whistle:
