Does anyone still think this idiot

Does anyone still think this idiot 


After his press conference today, does anyone still think this idiot is the best choice for president of the United States???

Even if you agree with his socialistic views and racist attitudes, you have to admit he is a joke of a leader.

I know we have had some very poor presidents and have survived them all, but a combination of obama and the congress that he has had might be what lights the fuse to us blowing ourselves completely apart.

This is really getting bad!!!!!!!

RE: Does anyone still think this idiot 


I can appreciate what the President was trying to say about how the black population sees things. However, he's not just the leader of the black community, he's the leader of the United States whether we like it or not. It's his job to SOOTH things and UNITE us and bring us together. All he's doing by siding with the Martin family is further stir up racial divisions in this country. No one has said that Trayvon's death wasn't tragic. But the tools and fools who've compared Trayvon's death to Emmitt Till's is as idiotic as anything I've ever heard. Emmitt Till was kidnapped in the middle of the night, beaten and tortured, and then shot point blank in the side of the head by two men who had very little humanity in them. George Zimmerman was guilty of bad judgement, THAT'S IT!!! There's no need for the president to project "Trayvon could be me/my son". All he did by doing that is to further alienate and split the populace of this country along racial and political lines.

Real leaders don't divide their followers, period.

Re: Does anyone still think this idiot 


Our president idiot gave another speech yesterday and used the word "unequal" repeatedly.

He will strive to divide until he gets a civil war or the democrats no longer give him the microphone.

I attempted to be respectful, it was very hard, because of the position of the presidency but I am now calling dirt dirt.    He wants to destroy this country and rebuild it as he and the liberals desire.

Always remember the year of 2013.    This country has a decision to make that will shape our country's future.    Do we listen and follow this "builder of walls and hatred" or do we try to save what is left of the United States of America.

Stevie Wonder must rely on others to tell him in what state he is actually is. His Excellency the Emperor Bobblehead the First has vision. Not the positive "vision thing" type of vision, just the sense of sight.

Clarence Thomas: Obama won because he was approved by the elites & the media. http://videos.huffingtonpost.c...media-517767232

That was interesting coming from him. I'd say this is a case of the proverbial pot calling the kettle black.

Re: Does anyone still think this idiot 


Just read this and thought of this thread:

Yesterday, the President proposed what he called a grand bargain corporate tax reform which would raise the rate paid by small businesses to 40%. Economists expected reform would come with a lower rate, something closer to the international standard to make US businesses more competitive, but the President wants more revenue to finance additional spending. (That, apparently, is the bargain.) He also said he wants to increase personal taxes, but will forego that for a year. Democratic Senator Max Baucus said the important take away is that the President is for tax reform. 


I absolutely love that last sentence.  Talk about political spin!!

Some of the folks of our great state are maybe more wise than we are generally given credit to be, but "smarter"? Um, I'm not inclined to agree. We maybe are not as stupid as we are generally regarded to be, but we are number fifty in many measurable categories for a legitimate reason.

Try to engage a proficient craftsman in many locales of our beautiful state to do work for you; there are many folks who call themselves a plumber or electrician or mason who are content to try and pass off their substandard work as appropriate. I've sadly experienced it personally too many times. Undereducated and ill-trained are a bad combination.

One generally gets what one pays for: a residential gutter installation in Mississippi can be a pleasure best saved for the seventh ring of Hades.

We have a bad president, a bad congress and two corrupt political parties that are working for the best interests of the sponsors that give them money. We are like Rome was in the last days of their empire.

You say this but America would've never stepped foot on the moon if not for Mississippian's. There are parts of this state that are much more poor than the rest of this county and much dumber than the rest. But there are areas of our state that exceed the national average. This no knock on you or where you are from but the area of the state that brings the whole down seems to be located north of Hwy 98.

Did Mississippians participate in the Apollo program? Yes. How? Two ways: The unfortunate Gainesville, Logtown and Napoleon residents who were forced to watch US Marshals and the Federal Government seize their private lands that they and their great-grandfathers lived on, move them out and let Yankees (meaning folks from any other state) design, engineer, build and staff the MTF (Mississippi Test Facility, the predecessor to Stennis Space Center).

Didn't Mississippians work at the MTF? Yes, they cut the grass, they built the roads, they did the low -tech construction work, they did the lower-level support jobs, and did these support jobs well in many cases. But to claim that because of any special expertise of Mississippians the Apollo project was successful is simply not true. Mississippians got the US to moon much like slave labor supported the State of Mississippi in 1859*. They both were integral and active to the task but both groups made no real big-picture decisions or contributed mental capital to the endeavor.

No local individual played a sizeable technical rôle in the set-up or testing of the Saturn rockets at MTF. The players and brains all were imports.

*There were admittedly literally a handful of trained aeronautical engineers from MSU by 1965 but they were a mere drop in the bucket compared to the Yankees who built, designed, ran and decided everything. Rockwell, Chrysler Aerospace, Honeywell, NASA, they all brought their people in from somewhere else to make Saturn testing happen.

I will argue that it was precisely that we were so backward in 1960 that Stennis and Eastland were able to sell their own constituents down the river (literally to Pearlington, in many cases). You think the folks of Kennebunkport or Woods Hole would have let the Feds take their private property in 1960 and pay them whatever they deem it to be worth? We got screwed because we were ignorant and in a backwater.

As to the present, there's statisical 'bad' areas spread all around our state, it's easier to point out the positive outliers than the poor performers, the former are much fewer in number. Hwy 98 isn't any real dilineage between the two.

I don't believe I intimated that I did. If I gave that impression, I didn't mean to. The folks who were imports were not necessarily 'smarter' than the same aged locals, they were better educated and specifically prepared to build and run a rocket testing facility. 

(von Braun had his stupid moments too. Like when he was asked about his knowledge of the use of slave labor in Germany...)

You're the one who called them "brains". I was happy to teach some of their offspring. Many of those kids were definitely smart, even if their parents were only "better educated". It certainly doesn't hurt a community to have some real rocket scientists around.

I meant the world "brains" in the context of "brains behind the operation", or the decision makers. A detailed study of the imports and the degree of  their assimilation into local culture, now in it's third-plus generation in the area versus the progress of the local kinsmen would make an interesting sociological and/or educational study topic.

You are wrong my friend. My dad worked out there as one of the first 4 employees ever at MTF and even received a plaque from the President for the work he did on the Saturn rocket program. In fact most of the guys who were doing the work there at the time were ex military guys from Mississippi who held clearance to be able to work on such a secrete program at the time. Now there had been a running joke about the SSME program being built by the lowest bidder who happened to be a bunch of rednecks from Nicholson . But it turned out those guys were pretty good at what they do as well. We also have Mississippians who work every day on the Cray super computer at stennis while there is so much more going on out there then you have a clue about.

What is happening now at SSC and the "locals" involvement and level of expertise are a far cry from what was the reality in 1962. Thanks to your pop for his service.
