“David Cameron - Exhibit #1

Proof that the politicians who wear their religion on their sleeves are the ones that you can safely bet are the ones you really have to watch. Religious extremism and hypocrisy aren't exclusive to Muslims.

We have an entire government, of the phony bastids.”

“The first time I heard Blinded by the Light sung by Bruce I thought i'd heard it all.

***

And now in Zanzibar a shootin' star was ridin' in a side car hummin' a lunar tune
Yes, and the avatar said blow the bar but first remove the cookie jar, we're gonna teach those boys to laugh too soon
And some kidnapped handicap was complaining that he caught the clap from some mousetrap he bought last night
Well I unsnapped his skull cap and between his ears I saw a gap but he'd figured he'd be all right

He was just blinded by the light. Cut loose like a deuce
Another runner in the night. Blinded by the light
Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun
Oh but mama that's where the fun is

***

Some of the best lyrics for a rock song ever written.”

“First thing I thought when I saw these pictures was "Lighten up Gladys!" They all look like they just the news they had six months left.

They're just showing off clothes so all the drama seems funny to me. It seems it all started when that Beckham person (who has designed some very NICE clothing I willingly admit) started all that pouting, making faces silliness. At least, that's when I first started really seeing it.

But at least this K/J family member has a legitimate 'job.”

“This family got famous on this creature's sex tape with another guy. This is not a matter of intolerance. It is simply a matter of being sick of a family with a decided lack of morals and absolutely no ethics or common sense. Their talents are displayed only when they're taking off their clothing. They contribute nothing. That they are as popular as they are says something very sad about people.”

“So don't watch them if you're sick of them. It's totally your choice to read and watch what you do - no one is forcing you. And so what if they take off their clothes ... women have been doing it forever and now men are returning the favor to us ladies.”

“Typical...

"What rankled the groups, a source close to one of them said, was not just that Burr questioned their motives on the eve of Memorial Day. It was also that Burr sent the letter after sparsely attending the hearings he found so offensive, and not raising concerns about the groups' positions on the issue while he was there."

In other words, they called him a lying Republican hypocrite. Which, if you didn't know who the letter was addressed to, would cover them all.”

“I thought Twain was fantastic. My sophomore year term paper on Huckleberry Finn got me an 'F'. The teacher said it was 'too good' for someone on my' level' so she made me do another one on 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' by Coleridge. (Reason for all the teacher attitude? Private girls Catholic boarding school.)

Has anyone ever read that thing??? Probably nobody in this 20th century did but ME. Only thing I got out of the redo was a tremendous hatred for that woman and a C for a term paper where I just made stuff up. (I guess I did learn where the old saying about having an 'albatross hanging around your neck' meant. )”

“No one is really going after these guys either...

But Credit Suisse will apparently not be an Arthur Andersen-style prosecution. As The New York Times reported last month, prosecutors have been canvassing other regulators to make sure a big bank could plead guilty without any sort of life-threatening consequences. Credit Suisse is reportedly not going to lose its charter to do business in the U.S. and seems unlikely to face any other serious business repercussions as a result of this plea.”

“EVERYTHING IS NOT ABOUT RACE.

And just because he's black doesn't mean he's right for the job. There are more qualifications necessary than that.”

Stephen Stafford on May 16, 2014 at 19:07:25

“THIS IS FOR ME. A BROTHER WAS PROMOTED TO A REALLY CHOICE POSITION, LEADING AN AMERICAN INSTITUTION. A PERPETUAL MALCONTENT IN HIS FIELD NOT ONLY DOGS HIM OUT, BUT REFERS TO THIS NEW LEADER AS SUBSERVIENT.

He deserves the same party most others get when they have a promotion, not the savaging Greenwald and his acolytes are administering.

He has proven to be right for the job in several ways. These ugly comments now are not an issue, and are not the experience of those who have been working with him at the NYTImes. There is no question of his qualifications, which is what makes Greenwald's antics so outrageous.

It is about race. Blacks, especially Black men, never are accomplished enough to be deemed qualified. Ridiculous,.”
