Colin Powell – A Prison Tale

One guess as to why Colin Powell says he's "still a Republican." In case you didn't guess right, here's your answer. He doesn't want to be treated like Arlen Specter! To put it gingerly, Specter got "punked in" to the Democrat Party. Thus we begin—A Prison Tale!

Specter is the new "chubby cheeks" in prison, and the Democrats are the Aryan Nation gang. The Dems assign a handler (Schumer) to help Specter see the need to join the gang. Schumer explains that Specter as a white man shouldn't be associating with the party that gave blacks their freedom, and passed all laws protecting blacks. (The Republican Party for all you ignorant Democrats and liberals) "That just doesn't look good," Schumer explains.

Specter, having accomplished little to help blacks as a Republican sees the futility of his situation. Attracted by the cool lightning bolt tattoos, and a few smokes, Specter joins the Democrat Aryan Nation (DAN). DAN promptly slaps a wig and some lipstick on Specter—if sensitive, you might want to turn away here—and they all have their way with him.

That is how racist Democrats treat white "Republicans" who defect. Imagine what they would do to an "uppity Negro" [LBJ quote]—though Powell is considered "high yellow."

While we are on the subject of color, a lot of you likely think that I am kidding about how racist Democrats view blacks—I am not. Contrast the treatment of Powell—a relatively light-skinned black, to Alan Keyes—a rather dark black gentlemen.

Both are stated Republicans. Yet one Republican is treated with respect and admiration, while the other is treated with total disdain. You can do the math on who is who.

Racist Democrats can tolerate a black—as long as he's not "too black." Many meddlist whites made comments that by not voting for Obama in the last election, Republicans were racists. Yet you couldn't find any of these true racist meddlist whites who voted for Keyes…the real black man! And Keyes ran back as early as 1996. Where were the racist Democrats back then, or the so-called Moderates?

And don't think black people get a pass. Blacks have their own "color test." Vote for the light-skinned snake oil salesman with no credentials over a true patriot like Keyes—then have the nerve to call whites the racists! More blacks play Bridge than voted for Keyes. I guess he was just a little too black, even for black folks? Don't tell me you differ philosophically, conservative black person who ignorantly votes Democrat, ergo "liberal"?

Powell is well aware there is no love for Republicans who switch to join the ranks of racist Democrats. After the switch you get fifteen seconds of fame. Paraded around the prison yard like the new kid in town--followed by a lifetime of "gender confusion". "Just because they did that to me doesn't make me gay does it?" No General, it just makes you stupid!

And after the unnatural act, the Democrats are quick to cast you amongst the Sodomites—Gen-Pop (General Population). There you are ridiculed. Fair game for the real prison predators—in this metaphor—the mainstream media.

And the Democrats and the lamestream media are happy to roll Powell out as the poster boy of "what the Republican Party needs". He is treated like "the voice of reason" in a party in turmoil. Powell reward is a lucrative hustle.

Here's the wrap:

Anybody who believes Powell was ever a real Republican needs to get off the hallucinogenic drugs, and this includes Powell himself. Just because he said it, doesn't make it so. I have demoted the General to Private and suggest he seek treatment. He has caught the disease of liberalism.

Powell is no more a Republican than Karl Marx. He just knows how much the liberals and the media love Republicans who take a furlough from the reservation—but come back. If Powell declared his real affiliation, Democrat, he would quickly become just another black Democrat, in a sea of black Democrats. A "no big deal." By remaining (whatever) Republican, he can be a thorn in the side of the Republicans. A finger in the eye from time to time. A rock in the shoe.

Like with Specter, the Democrat Aryan Nation has handlers for Powell. He is being courted by ignorant liberals such as Keith Olberhack and Rachel Madcow to make that move. I say to Powell don't slip in the shower or pick up the soap, yes watch your back Bro. Because DAN stands ready to "punk in" Powell.

That's my rant!

paz said...

Kevin, you have the best pictures and those arms on Michelle ROFLMAO. You do it so well. Powell lives a rather rich and fulfilled life who like a lot of men claim to fame was retirement from the government with a nice pension. What makes him smarter than any other man or is he the token for liberals to say look anyone can do this. Our men coming home now are being tried for doing their jobs unlike Colin Powell and his son also has a nice lifestyle a la Jesse James Jackson's sons and Jesse (never worked a day in his life with no church either) Rev. I say not. Rev to Jesse is only a prefix. Keep up the good work!!! We need more Kevin and less Jesses and Colins.

Powell was ruined by the State Dept. He has forgotten he is a soldier and has a spine. He is no longer his own man. I began losing respect for him during the first GDB administration.

The Black Sphere said...

@Karen - I agree wholeheartedly! Powell become a flunky for the Left!

That picture of Powell in the rocking chair really made me laugh! Thanks for brighting up a dreary rainy Wednesday, Kevin. LOL

@Rose-Bud - Glad you liked the pic! It cracked me up as well.

Tommi Jefferson said...

Once again you've put it all in perspective and done it with humor. BTW, I met a young lady on a discussion board who was beginning to question her liberal indoctrination. She stated she was taught that the republicans were the racists and the dems were the racial champions. I sent her your way for re-education.

paz said...

The young woman you met Tommi must have been a product of socialistic teachers i.e. William Ayers now teacher former occupation bomb holder. I was always taught if you did not like a country or anything you could always leave but Bill did not leave. He was promoted to capturing the minds of the young whose parents were from the Woodstock drug era. Unfortunately the democraps of today are not the dems of John Kennedy era more like Marx fascists. They hold the people down and believe in war i.e. Viet Nam. We will have war to boost the economy while the politicians side with the enemy not our men and get rich and live lavious drunk lives and the stupids will watch American Idol and vote stupidly. I wish those persons did not vote as they are too dumb anyway.

Anonymous said...

Dang that picture frightened me! Thought that was Pelosi without makeup next to Ohdumdum! Great article on Powell - I've always admired the man but have lost respect for him since he endorsed Ohdumdum. Too bad...

The Black Sphere said...

@Tommi - Thanks for the compliment, and for sending that lib my way for re-education...the RIGHT way! Two blogs will undo 18 years of "gubment" education, for sure. If she's a hard case, it could take three blogs. But we are prepared!

The Black Sphere said...

@Paz - Nice rant!

Da Sicilian said...

I HATE IT WHEN THOSE PERKY HOLLYWOOD TYPES ARE RIGHT...
I have just had an epiphany…after hearing Janeane Garafolo’s teabag party statements! Pure and simple she states that all of us tea-baggers are hate filled racists trying to undermine the ‘chosen-one’ because of his race. Who’d a ever a thunk it - That one of Hollywood’s finest actresses and comediennes of our time, would be so smart as to recognize my true bigoted, intolerant small mindedness?
I am truly a racist! I really do dislike Obama because of his color! Now don’t get me wrong, there are some of his color that I really do like and believe you me there are more of them then I can perhaps count on one hand. But for me Obama truly epitomizes all that his race has ever stood for and I’m absolutely stunned!
Who’d a ever a thunk it? That this, raised in the sixties, ‘makes love not war,’ activist was all the time a closet racist. I shed tears when Reverend King made his ‘I have a dream,’ speech…and nearly broke down completely when his young life was taken from him. I mean I almost got to Woodstock for the festivities for gosh sakes. And how could I ever forget the awe-inspiring talk Norman Thomas gave to us at my NJ high school? I am a progressive, dammit!
This is just too much to bear.
Obama has stated that ‘yes we can….’ I’m here to say that when a dyed in the wool individual like me looks deep into his soul and sees a bigot…maybe we can’t!
I suppose I should explain why I really can’t come to grips with Mr. Obama. I think former VP Agnew stated it best:
"an effete corps of impudent snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals."
Yup, I’m prejudiced alright; I dislike all of the things that say Obama is better than me. His Hahavaard education. Asking for Dijon mustard at a hamburger joint. The fact that he doesn’t need to cling to his guns or religion. Gosh I’m just filled with hate for some pseudo white guy that isn’t an everyday hump like me.
Oh, you thought I hated the black man Obama…?...Not a chance, that’s the only real person in him…

You won't like this, but in light of this recession now just perhaps days from total world economic collapse, Powell is irrelevant trivia.

Victor said...

Let's see if I have this right:

Democrats are the "Aryan Nation" in this little play... and Chuck Schumer is one of their "handlers"?

Simply amazing: Kevin, you win today's Cognitive Dissonance Award for enrolling a prominent Jewish politician into an antisemitic Aryan group.

Well done!

MEG said...

Victor, you can try to sound impressive with your nonsensical analogy, but you are still a dumb ass. Go back to the Huffy Post where you belong.

Victor said...

Begging your pardon, MEG, but it's Kevin's analogy - not mine.

Dawg said...

@Victor
Wow Victor, do you have a degree in racism? Most of us look at Schumer and see radical liberal senator. You see a Jew.

Victor said...

Dawg,

"Schumer was born in Brooklyn to a Jewish family. His parents were Selma Rosen and Abraham Schumer.[2]"

That's a quote from Wikipedia. Referring to Senator Schumer as a "prominent Jewish politician" is in no way making a racist statement.

Would it be racist if I referred to myself as a Christian technology manager?

Nice try, Dawg.

Jim said...

General Powell is supposedly staying a Republican only because it offers, as the article implies, more bang for the buck. That is obvious to me. He wants big government and more taxes. How is that Republican?

It is unfortunate a great and respectable General would lower himself to be a partisan hack. Too bad, I used to like General Powell.

Dawg said...

Victor,

I bow to your superior intellect. Thanks to our brief conversation, I am now fully informed that Schumer is a Jew and Christian is a race.

Victor said...

Dawg,

Both Judaism and Christianity are religions.

If you practice Judaism, you're Jewish.

If you practice Christianity, you're Christian.

It can be confusing sometimes, because the word "Jewish" can refer to either the religion or the culture.

Anonymous said...

Kevin, I was recently turned on to your site while on Townhall.com in a gun debate. I am proud to call you a fellow republican and texan. As a "white evil racist republican" I sure get a kick out of telling the true racist's (democrat party)that I was honored to vote for Railroad Commissioner Michael L. Williams, Chief Justice, Supreme Court Wallace B. Jefferson and Justice, Supreme Court, Place 7 Dale Wainwright in my home state of Texas (all evil racist republicans who happen to be black). Keep up the good work and I will keep up the reading.

shoprat said...

Actually I find it a little hopeful that he wants to be considered a Republican. He is a political chameleon and he has some inside knowledge. Perhaps he knows which way the wind is beginning to blow. He apologizes for his "lapse in judgment" in the last election and hopes we forgive him.

Old Centennial Farmhouse said...

VERY good post, Powell has bugged me for a LONG time...but when he came out and said BARACK was the best man for the job, I just had to laugh! HELLO! The man has no experience in an executive position...not much experience, in fact, at ANYTHING that would prepare him for the job awaiting at the White House! We all KNOW why Powell voted for Obama, and we all know that Powell is Obama's machine gun, aimed STRAIGHT at the Republican party. If those with the ability to do so do not take back their party, the Republicans will soon be BLASTED OUT OF EXISTENCE by the White House's political machine!
Great post...

@Victor - As if Jews can't be racist. In fact most are! They support the Democrat Party, that's all it takes for me. The Dems are bona fide racist, past and present.

Thanks for the lesson on ethnicity and religion. I'm sure you are used to explaining things to your liberal crowd, however we don't need it here.

It is also refreshing to know that Wikipedia is your source for knowledge, considering anybody can put anything they want there.

My analogy is EXACTLY as I intended it. Democrats remind me of the Aryan Nation (I should likely apologize to the AN for the comparison to Democrats, however I won't), hell bent on converting people to their way of thinking.

As for Powell, you know where I stand.

The Black Sphere said...

Chuckling all the way through this post Kevin, laughing out loud in fact. I can just picture it. So far Obama's presidency has been the most racist I have ever seen in my life span. It just gets worse and worse with each new appointment doesn't it. Keep it up, humor is very important in a time of crisis.

Tom Hoefling said...

Alan Keyes left the Republican Party more than a year ago. He is now affiliated with the new America's Independent Party, which is already the third-largest party in the country based on voter registration.

Joe said...

If Powell is a Republican, what makes him one?

Does he agree with the positions of the majority of Republicans?

I think not.

You have nailed it...he is a Republican of convenience.

(I have to admit to wishing shoprat is right, though...maybe.)

paz said...

Tom, I like that American Independent Party but I am wondering if it will hurt true conservatives to winning back from the fascists in power. BO is stinking up America especially with Sono Supreme Court Justice. Will Biden treat her like he treated Clarence Thomas? I think not that drunken fool. Is Sono Sotomajorheadache an illegal or legal. Did I pay for her go to Harvard or wherever by working and never promoting dead-end jobs. Oh she is from Puerto Rico I forgot. Same thing they have welfare takers there and now more than ever in NYC. Sotomajorheadache should go down and fast. She and Bun ACLU Bader will now sit together in stupidity. She will make sure college whites and blacks get the jobs sweeping up after the illegal alien. She is La Raza pro. La Raza is BAD BAD AND BAD.

The Black Sphere said...

@Lady Julie - Love making you laugh!

The Black Sphere said...

@Tom - The point is that racist Dems had a black guy to vote for.

The Black Sphere said...

@Joe - I agree, I hope Powell knows something. But I doubt it.

The Black Sphere said...

@Paz - LaRaza is more associated with Mexicans, I believe...

Victor said...

Kevin,

Two points:

1. Instead of (unsuccessfully) trying to impeach a credible and credibly-cited source like Wikipedia, why not present evidence refuting my assertion (that Senator Schumer is Jewish)? Or do you agree that it's an accurate statement of fact?

2. When you say that Democrats remind you of Aryan Nation, you're either putting Democrats or neo-Nazis on the wrong side of the political spectrum: neo-Nazis belong to the farthest reaches of the ultra-Right, not the Left. If you want to pick on Democrats, call them Communists, Socialists or anarchists: you'll be exaggerating, but at least you'll be on the correct side of the political spectrum.

paz said...

@theblacksphere, you 4get his grama and grampa who raised him were white and momma was white lazy socialist fascist - He is half and half but Democraps seem to forget the white half. Bill was the first black President remember. I'd like to shove that saxophone up his @##.

paz said...

@Theblacksphere, nope Sonia Sotomajorheadache is a big big supporter of theirs - La Raza will support any Latino and hates whites. The Race!!! The only Race!!!

paz said...

@Victor, Point Blank CHUCK Shoehornupass (and that is all he is good for and yes I know his last name)is a Democrap but in reality an ahole who probably like the rest of the democraps is on some form of SSRI and drinks like a fish in water and he is thinking he is smart. Trust me half your congress are dopers and alcoholics. I used to type VA hearings for our soldiers and half the Congress persons were in there incoherent. We have a bunch of CRAP in Congress and I hate them. There are some good ones like Thune from South Dakota, Duncan Hunter, Jr. from Calif true conservatives but the Democraps are not Democraps they are CRAPS and fascists. BO has the brains of an ant and an ant has more brains. Has no one ever said NO TO HIM. No they havent. It sure took him a long time to bury his grandmother who raised and sacrificed for him and he did not bury her, cremated her and threw her in the ocean like fish food. He is a selfish piece of work like his wife and her arms make me PUKE.

Jess said...

I never thought about the point that Powell would fade into obscurity if he announced a change in parties. His military career is long over, and his political views are no more enlightening than Joe Biden's.

I thought he had more honor, but politics does have a way of poisoning the soul.

Next, the KKK and neo-Nazis are the far left, despite you racists always attempting to put them on the right. Dem started and they remain Dem.

1CoolMom said...

Kevin - I love your blog! Been lurking for a few weeks and have posted a few links and tweets about you. Gotta tell you though, I'm already so bored of Victor I could scream. Yeah, it's funny when you get him all bunched up in a ball as he tries once again to prove his intellectual superiority-yawn-excuse me!
But unlike you he has absolutely NO sense of humor. None whatsoever, and that gets tiresome. The rest of us get it that you're making a humorous analogy, and in that analogy, it's your perogative as the writer to make the modern day DAN a racist group only out to get the blacks, so get over it already, man! He is so determined to show you up he now has to resort to attacking the humor that all your fans love. He insults us all by trying to rescue us, by means of his "super-brain" from your evil deceptions, that we are all too stupid to see for ourselves. He definitely is mistaking us for those libs he hangs out with. Think he'll ever realize what a fool he makes of himself? If we ignore him, will he go away? Geez, we all read this blog because we love your sense of style and humor. And IF you ever did make a mistake, I think we could deal with it, so Victor's lifelong dream of bringing you down would evaporate faster than Nancy Pelosi's credibility.

Keep up the good work!

The Black Sphere said...

1CoolMom - You are a real sweetie! First, between my brother and me we know EVERYTHING. So if I miss something, then my bro is the expert in that area! As for Victor, keep in mind that I only use 0.23% of my brain in the battle of wits. I try to give the guy a fighting chance! Believe me when I tell you that I know how to battle the nitwits, as I don't get lured into their insanity! It's like trying to figure out why women date deathrow inmates!! Huh

Hello Birdy said...

So ... like Paz ...

You mentioned the people who watch Idol and vote stupidly ... do I take it that you thought Danny Gokey was the best singer too? ;0)



Great rant Kevin.

1CoolMom said...

I do have faith in you! You always expose the sheer idiocy of these snivelly little trolls. And I really don't mind them all that much. After all, if two people agree on everything, one of them is unnecessary, no? Anyone who challenges our perspective gives us the opportunity to reinforce our principles. So Victor, et al, have done us a favor by exposing their foolishness and magnifying every point you make. I can appreciate that. I'll look forward to your next post.

dcbroome said...

Thanks for another great article!! I have added your site to my "must-reads" every morning, along with Lucianne.com!!

paz said...

Good morning all. Birdy, I have no television. Don't watch. Don't need. I work 13 hours 6 days a week in healthcare and have internet access. I have NEVER watched AI. I find it sounds stupid and if I had a television I would not. Television is for the democrap voters, mindless and the persons who act make more money than I ever will in a lifetime for acting which is fantasy island playing someone else. Hollyweird is now neurotic, GAY and selfish. Susan Saranwrap and her husband think because they are rich they know everything but know little. So to answer your question, I know nothing of Dan whom ever he is or anything of American Idol.

Victor said...

Kevin,

You asked why Wikipedia is not allowed as credible in college and university thesis. We're not in college, are we? Neither are we writing a thesis.

If you do want rigor in these discussions, then I would expect you to lead by example and offer some yourself.

You went on to state that "the KKK and neo-Nazis are the far left, despite you racists always attempting to put them on the right. Dem started and they remain Dem."

Again, the facts seem at odds with your words. You may not want to accept that neo-Nazi groups are on the far end of the political right, but they are:

"The terms extreme right or ultra right are used by some scholars to discuss only those right-wing political groups that step outside the boundaries of traditional electoral politics. This generally includes the revolutionary right, militant racial supremacists and religious extremists, neo-fascists, neo-Nazis and Klansmen. In this usage, the terms are distinct from other forms of right-wing politics such as the less-militant sectors of the far right, right-wing populists.[2]"

Here's a thought experiment for you: if, as you say, groups like Aryan Nation are on the left of the political spectrum, imagine what they thought on this past Election Day, when Barack Hussein Obama won. Imagine how they felt when they saw Chief Justice Roberts administer the oath of office on Inauguration Day.

Do you think they were pleased that a Democrat won?

When you combine a strong opinion with credible assertions, you create an irrefutable argument. You've got the opinion part down... now all that needs work is your research.

1CoolMom,

Here's a question for you: did you think it was funny, or satirical, or humorous in any way when a certain segment of the people referred to George W. Bush as "Chimpy McBushitler"? I did not. I was offended by the disrespect, no matter how I disagreed with the man's policies. Humor is an excellent tool when used correctly: this is not one of those instances.

Hello Birdy said...

Paz,

You make comments about something you have no idea about. The fact is that AI is a one of the few wholesome shows on TV and is watched by tens of millions of America's youth (many adults too .. I know families who watch it together). It's about music, challenge, character, success and failure. It also gives great opportunity for aspiring young singers make a career that they otherwise would not have.

Even the losers win on Idol since they become well-known during the contest.

You might do well to work fewer hours and get a life ... and maybe a TV there is plenty on there that is worth watching such as Fox News with O'Reilly and others who provide a more conservative view of the world.

If I were in medical care where you work, I would not trust a person who works 13.5 hours a day six days a week with my health care. That is obsessive and damaging. Next thing you know you will posting comments criticizing things you know nothing about about.

With all due respect Paz ... tossing out venom on blog sites is not the best R&R for someone with a work life that you describe.

My original comment to you was meant in humor, but you took it in some weird way ... when you can no longer recognize humor, you need .... well something ....

Cheers and good morning y'all from Canada's West Coast.

paz said...

Well Birdy if I could live and pay my rent for less hours, I would but unfortunately raises are NOT and Canada's healthcare SUCKS. If it was good, why am I typing up more and more Canadians who come here for cancer treatment. So you do not know me and you have no right to tell me to get a life because I do not see Oprah Winfrey known as oophorectomy Winfree opening up her fat wallet but telling me to open up mine to support the lazy and greedy who need to get off their butt and not collect my taxes. You have no right to insult me but then you watch television so that answers it. Here is a thought - Al Queda auditioning for AI. Paula would probably love them. She is a piece of work!!!! End of conversation - Why don't you insult your medical services in Canada instead of them sending their poor patients with cancer to USA. You might think about that for your government stinks and it all started with Margaret Trudeau and her selfishness.

Hello Birdy said...

Paz,

You are truly confused. I don't suggest that watching crap like the Oprah show is worthwhile. I believe I mentioned FOX News. There are also many good movies available on TV for free.

Regarding Canadian Health care. The vast majority of Canadians know that is sucks, but you would love working in it since it heavily controlled by unions and you would be over-paid and have a secure gig.

Many Canadians warn Americans about the folly of government run health care. The waiting lists are very long. It is actually illegal to seek or provide private health care in Canada. Imagine that ... illegal That is why many Canadians go the USA for quality, timely health care. Obama will rid you of that privilege if he succeeds.

Canadians who go the USA (unlike the millions of illegals living in your country) actually pay for their health care which provides work for you. You should be grateful. That also demonstrates the sad shape our socialized health care is in.

Further ... I have no idea what your Margaret Trudeau reference was about. She was the hippie wife of Pierre Elliot Trudeau who was the bastard Prime Minister from the late 60s to the early 80's (no term limits on our dictators) who socialized so much of the Canadian economy. We are suffering big time under those lingering sociialist policies. Margaret was an air head and her claim to fame is that she smoked pot in the Parliament buildings and partied with the Rolling Stones.

Our current government is conservative and they are working to reverse much of the damage. It will take many generations to undo even some of that damage.

I wasn't insulting you, I was giving you some good advice. Based on your words, you seem a bit haggard. Again, all work and no play makes Paz a dull boy.

Unlike you, I work very little because I saved and invested for many years and now enjoy semi retirement that allows me time to debate you and even watch a bit of TV in the evenings.

Kevin sorry to be so far off topic, but I cannot resist a good argument.

Birdy, you are right the Canadians I transcribe do pay and I get a lot of Islanders from Carribbean. We do agree about the Trudeaus who at this time remind me of the Obama or as I prefer to call him BO, stinkin up America. I am a transcriptionist not a doctor and unions are the ruin of all evil. I like Canada, Nova Scotia but would love to visit Newfoundland. I have met many transcriptionists who are having a hard time getting a job transcribing and imo we are the backbone of medicine because the doctors overmedicate and make big mistakes which the average person does not know but we transcribe it.
So we will disagree. You are right I am tired but I have to work as no raises in my field at this time. Relaxation is Ipod audiobooks and geocaching at this time. Kettle bell exercising so I do get rest. I watch no television as it does not put money in my pocket so hiking with my ipod, geocaching, and kettle bell exercising to keep in shape. :-)

Hello Birdy said...

paz,

I think we probably would agree on most things, but I hate to see people over-worked.

Good that you're active and consider health and fitness to be important. That is indeed a good reason to turn of the TV.

Cheers,
Birdy

I don't know who you are or where you live in the States, but your posts above were fantastic and I was laughing my ass off! You are a no nonsense guy who tells it like you see it.
Your take-down of Victor was priceless.

And of course, Kevin's posts crack me up like nothing else. Seeing Colin Powell in that granny dress was TOO much, Kevin! Damn that is funny.

paz said...

Nerbygirl, LOL ROFLMAO, I forget no pic but I am female :-)

nerbygirl said...

Paz:
Male, female, I don't care. You are the BOMB. You talk like I do: No bull.
And I love the fact that you use kettle balls. I was going to try those out myself to get rid of my flabby arms LOL.

paz said...

Yes, I think we are conservative although at first I thought you were lib and there are some libs that like to taunt us conservatives. Join us tonight on kevin's show www.blogtalkradio.com/theblacksphere. It is 7 to 9 Pacific time so East coast is 10-12, late but my friend Tony Hager who also writes a great column www.therightslant.com - he has another blog and you can find it on his column. Hope to see you in the chat room or if not listen tonight. I don't do chatrooms but this one I do as lots of persons who think like me.

paz said...

hey, www.artofstrength.com - has a great kettlebell - made in USA - u-fill-it or punch kettlebells and he has sales every Tuesday so get Anthony's newsletter. He trains the Tennessee titans. Yes I am a fan :-) Nice meeting another KB. I became addicted 6 months ago. It is amazing what 20 minutes 3 times a week can do aerobic and anaerobic. I went on a website and so Beth Chamberlin's amazing change and I was hooked.

The Black Sphere said...

Glad you kids are all having fun now.

@Victor - Whether you know it now, you are being SCHOOLT, fool! Don't bring you "wackopedia" data in here trying to pass your turds off as gold ingots.

The KKK was a DEM organization, even your "wackopedia" must own up to that! ANY splinter groups that arise thereof get credited to THEM. Despite the fact that "scholars" (Bill Ayers comes to mind!) say that they are not, I know history! I'd like to know who is actually watching these guys vote...oh there are those Frank Luntz focus groups!

You're a buffoon if you think you can peddal your "turdburgers" in here, and not be challenged. You are use to the Salon.com crowd, which are happy to dip their chips in crap and call it pate. Not here!

Tell me that the Dems did not engender the KKK and you win. Try to tell me of the "big switch" in the 60s, and I will pull out my knife and emasculate you!

nerbygirl said...

Paz:
You thought I was a LIB???? LOL. That's the funniest thing I've heard all week. I'm such a conservative that I scare my Republican friends!

Thanks for the kettle ball advice.
I really do have flabby arms, so I'll give it a try.

And Kevin: I'm going to listen to you tonight. Haven't been able to catch it as I'm always working nights.
No, not THAT kind of work :)

The Black Sphere said...

@nerbygirl - Admittedly my cynical mind went straight to the street corner! I hope you can catch the show! Take care...

Odysseus said...

It never ceases to amaze me that 95% of blacks have been hoodwinked into thinking the Democrats are the non-racist party. The Democrats were the party of slavery. After the civil war, they were the ones who filled the ranks of the Ku Klux Klan, passed Jim Crow laws and enforced segregation. Friggin' Robert Byrd was a Grand Dragon and a vocal segregationist. Somehow, all these blacks assume that the party had this sudden change of heart in the sixties. They don't realize that welfare and other government programs are just the "nice" way of enslaving people. Don't get me started on Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood.

Obama? Anybody notice that while he may be of African descent, he's not African-American? Obama Sr. may have had black skin, but he was mostly an Arab. The descendants of slaves like Jesse Jackson don't get anywhere in the party, but the descendants of the Africans who sold other Africans into slavery do. Hmmmm.

Victor said...

Kevin,

1. Please try to spell correctly: it makes your arguments look bad when someone sees typos like "peddal."

2. Do you have a big knife? Really? And are you really promising to emasculate me with it? Right through this monitor?

Please: save the empty threats for face to face encounters in the school playground. You and I are adults, and we should be able to express disagreements without resorting to empty threats of violence.

Last: when you mentioned Aryan Nation, you put them on the political left. Without proof. Without evidence. And you still haven't offered any, even in light of citations that show you're wrong.

Your arguments look weak without facts backing them up. Your replies look shrill now that you've resorted to threats. You can do better. I hope you'll try.

The Black Sphere said...

Victor, you are officially a troll. And I will treat you as such! First I don't debate ignorant Democrat dweebs. There's nothing in it. What I find interesting is the lack of substance in your life, so much so that you spend your time looking for fallacy in my discussions. I assure you that I have NO interest in your pitiful government-subsidized life.

As for threatening you, well thanks for pointing out to me that my metaphorically cutting off of you "mice sized" balls can not happen through my computer screen. Did your mother teach you that. NO, I forgot...gubment schools.

It is really going to be fun watching ignoramuses like you in 2010, as this country finally finds its sanity. I long for the day when the world sees people like you for what you are...the smartest ignorant man in the room. Or the most ignorant smart man...take your pick, as it works either way.

Most Rev. Gregori said...

Kevin,I have felt exactly the same way concerning Colin Powell, especially after his statement that the Republican party needs to become more like the Democrat party. Kinda sounds like he would like a single party. I have been saying for a number of years now that both parties are morphing into one.

I also believe that McCain is RINO and he handed Obama the election.

Of course, the one big question on my mind is; "With all of the blatant violations of the Constitution that has been going on for a number of years by both parties and all three branches of government, when the hell are people going to get enough guts to rise up and revolt. I am not talking about over throwing our constitutional government, but I am talking about over throwing the scum, all of the Senators, Representatives, Supreme Court Judges and the president, because they have committed treason against this nation and enacted unconstitutional laws. We really need to get America back to the Constitutional Republic we were founded to be. All of the gay rights laws, abortion rights laws and most of the hate crimes legislation have to go and we need elected officials who will live up to their oath of office and who will put the concerns of the American citizens first.

P.S.

I voted for Dr. Keyes every time he ran. He is one smart and moral citizen.

Chip Head said...

"More blacks play Bridge than voted for Keyes." Love it! Very funny!

Mazzuchelli said...

You are hilarious!
The making of "W's" cabinet during his first term was thrilling to watch unlike the ongoing embarrassment to which TJ has subjected the country. Powell was part of it. I was so proud. But his stint at State was a disappointment. His leftward leanings were surfaced telegraphing that he was indeed a McCain Republican. Can you spell R-I-N-O?

And Keyes is indeed the real deal and also hilarious. The third party is a concern however. The conservatives need to band under flag so we don't dilute our votes.

The Black Sphere said...

@Chip - Glad you liked that.
@Mazzuchelli - Thanks, and hopefully you visit often!

Mazzuchelli said...

I've been here before but am technologically challenged. Just figured out how to get a name in. Sigh.

War story, a few years back one of my golf buddies was a cool gal, black, who took up golf in her 50's and then did a Tiger thing. Just took off and left her hacker girlfriends behind. Anyway, she's a Dim, unfortunately, and really disliked Condi. Condi, to me, is proof of the greatness of this country. She's a genuine phenom but no one will give her credence since she's conservative. I told my golf buddy to Tivo Sunday AM political shows and really listen to what Condi had to say and how she said it. Well, my existence is now validated. She remains a Dim but had to come around and admit that Condi is one impressive individual. How anyone cannot admire Condi is beyond me.

The Black Republican who is the real McCoy is run out of town on a rail leaving us with turncoat Powell. It's a great country. [Am I rambling?]

The Black Sphere said...

@Maz - Not rambling. Excellent points! Condi is a beacon!

Hard_Right said...

Wish I had caught this thread sooner.
Hey victard, do you know what a Nationalist Socialist is? Hint: Socialist is a big clue. They have A LOT in common with the dems. They are called Neo-nazis. They are from the left. If you weren't so busy freebasing kool-aid you would know that.
Want a real education? Ignore wikipedia and go to their sites and see what they say for themselves.

Victor said...

Hard Right,

History and the facts continue to argue against your assertion.

I believe I'll continue to rely on those, but thank you for the suggestion.

The Black Sphere said...

@Victor - A Democrat relying on history and facts?! ROFLMBO!

Victor said...

I invite you to try it sometime, Kevin.

It might open your eyes.

The Black Sphere said...

@Victor - I must admit you are good for laughs. Left to you racist democrats, blacks like me would still be on the plantation, or part of some experiment. I suggest you stop going to wikipedia for your answers and go to real history. It is ignorant racist like you who keep me in constant pimp slap mode. If you had half a brain, I still couldn't call you a half-wit. Stop being so "ignant," go get answers, and not from your "ignant" friends, but from people who know. When you come back with relevant comments, I will allow you to comment. Til then, you are on restriction. You're not funny, witty, anything...just "ignant!"

Victor said...

Oh, my. Sending me to my room without dessert? The horror.

If you are so convinced of the correctness of your position, why not offer the evidence that proves you right, instead of waving your hands and claiming that you are a genius at human nature and that you know history?

What is it that prevents you from demonstrating that you're right, instead of just claiming that you are?

What is stopping you from pointing out the facts that show, without a doubt, how "ignant" I am?

I'm easy to convince, when you can prove your assertions.

Until then, all you have is... not a darn thing, actually.

If the truth were your clothing, you'd be standing there stark naked, shivering and wondering why.

The Black Sphere said...

@Victor - LOVE your analogies! You are one lazy lib. Do your OWN research you troll! I'm not hear as your slave. It would take you all of two minutes to...here you go...google Democrat RACISM, and you will have ALL the evidence you need! And not all from wiki!

You will not post on here ANY more until you discover your inner racist! When you have read about yourself and those meddler friends of yours, then we will have further discussions.

My ability to teach the nitwits has its limits. There comes a time when you must do something for yourself. Help me, help you, Victor.

You are banned until you can ADMIT the racism of the Democrats. Then I will have one more test for you, should you pass the first one. And the first one is a GUARANTEED "A" for a 3-yo conservative, the equivalent of a full-'growed up' Lib

The Black Sphere said...

I deleted a comment by Victor the Troll, because he failed his test. Likely no surprise to my conservative readers!

Try again, Vic. Remanded to the 2nd grade.

Hard_Right said...

Vic, you are proof how deliberately blind the left it. You would rather read wiki since it can be changed to fit the lies you are so desperate to believe in.

You made it a point to hide from seeing what the nationalist socialists views are. Not from wiki, but from their own mouths. You are truly sad.
