Glad you enjoyed them and glad to see you back!

typo - meant cite things as hoax, not "site" things
Just thought I'd correct that before I get pummeled by the people who want to believe snopes is a truthful organization.
I for one am glad AG
some opposing views. I'm all for that. Too often "stalking" gets mentioned when it's really just someone who finds a lot to argue with in someone else's posts - of course they're going to reply if they have something to say. It's usually nothing personal. And even if it becomes that after so much back-and-forth, so what? If a person is arguing with facts and debating relevant issues, the other poster ought to have their facts in line also for a good reply. Challenging isn't "stalking." I think those who fear challenge are those who don't really have a desire to debate at all, or aren't sure of their own information - in which case why are they here in a political forum when there are happy happy recipe exchanges going on a couple of forums over?
Glad to see him go...nm

I'm Glad...
Judith Regan, the woman who wrote the book, claims she contracted with his lawyers that the money went to the kids or she would not have done it. Don't know if that is true or not; that is what I read. I am also glad that Fox dropped it. Pressure on NBC also resulted in the crucifixion-like scene in Madonna's concert being cut. The people do have a voice...we just need to continue to use it.
Yes, and I am very glad
that there are less of our troops dying over there. I guess my point was just that some people (not meaning you, but people on the news) discuss how things are going good in Iraq without always necessarily taking into context how BAD it was. I do recall hearing on MSNBC I think how that even though the number of deaths has gone down in recent months, 2007 was still the deadliest year in the war. I would be curious to see how the number of deaths/injuries now compares to each month/year since the war began.
Glad to see someone else...
has refused to drink the Kool-Aid.

Excellent post with great points, not bashing, threats, scare tactics and hot air. Refreshing these days.
I'm glad -nm
I'm glad you know her so well.
You see her one way, I see her another.  I don't like her, you do, so what's the big deal?  I think she is phony, you think she's sincere.  We'll see.
I'm glad! nm
I'm so glad I don't believe all that s#it.
Or the gum on the bottom of your shoe is an omen of the end of the world because it resembles Satan.

Ooga-booga-booga -
I'm glad you are.............sm
but that is not the case with everyone.
While I am glad
That part of the stimulus was taken out, I don't agree with the fact that the alternative is a depression. We are already walking a razor's edge of a depression. There isn't a whole lot that is going to "save the economy" or the world financial markets. Prices and company stocks were over inflated for many years and each market must reset themselves. With more money being printed and nothing to back it up, we will have hyperinflation probably towards the end of this year. There are a few very respected analysts that are saying September of 2009 is going to be the worst.

I give Obama all the credit in the world for trying to undertake this massive problem but at the same time it is his job. I hope he is able to pull something out of his hat that is fair and right to everyone.
Thank you - I'm glad I was not the only one
I got through the first sentence, but the rest just rambled on and I could not understand what point was being made except that the poster was too happy to call someone a teabagger. I guess that's the "trendy" thing to do now. I still would like to know if she would like me to call her the "c" word and see how she likes it.

Like cuss words that you cannot say on this board I think this is one of those terms that should be banned.
I am glad he is doing SOMETHING
I am willing to give the man a chance. I don't condemn him simply because he is not of "my party."

I do not like the spending at all - but he was not the cause of that spending. He is just trying to "fix" the broken system he was given.

As has been asked numerous times on this board, what better ideas do you have?
YES! Right on GP! Glad to see you again.

Although we do disagree at times, just like I disagree with JTBB sometimes, at least they are normal "conversations." 


Thank you. I'm glad someone can understand
Most of the time on these boards I feel like I'm on another planet.
Glad to be back. sm
No I am not walking on eggshells because of the other board. I re-read my post.  I am the daughter of a Command Sergeant Major, from the real old Army, and we did not discuss rank at all; it was not proper at that time.  When we were overseas, we were all Americans and equal; rank, race, religion did not matter, we were all the same - AMERICANS. When I said earlier my dad was "spat upon".  He wasn't but many VN soldiers were; and I was speaking for them.  No one in their right mind would have spat on my dad.  He was infantry, a sharp-shooter, a marksman.  That was his MOS - military occupational specialty.  The second time he went to VN he got two kinds of malaria at once, and he was shot so full of quinine, he had tremors, I probably did not spell it right, probably tremers, he could never hold a gun again. We were stationed in Germany between 1960-1963, and I still don't know the deal.  All I know is there would be a lot of activity all of a sudden in the middle of the night; mom would be up helping him pack, and he would be gone - maybe for a day, maybe for three months, maybe for a year, and he never talked about it.  I did ask him one time when I was a child if he had ever killed anyone.  He teared up and said he had killed many men, but the hardest was that he had to kill a kid who had a grenade in his hand and was trying to kill him.  Anyhow, we got back to the states in late 63, early 64, just in time for the JFK assination; that is when all innocence stopped for me, and I became a bitter person - working on it though. Thanks gals, just got mom to bed, needed to vent.
I'm certainly glad you didn't go into it...

This is a joke, a parody of all the ridiculous right-winger fundamentalists telling us the tsunami is God punishing people who don't think like them, that Katrina looked like a fetus.......blah-blah-blah. 

The difference is that this is a JOKE and the other examples are DEAD SERIOUS!!!!!  I hope you understand this better now.

You're welcome, glad
He is an excellent writer. Too bad it often falls on deaf ears and blind eyes. Yes, I agree with you, that people tend to take their news with 30-second soundbites and don't read anymore.
I'm glad you posted this. Thanks! nm
Wish I'd seen that! Well, actually glad I didn't.

Gawd,  just think about the possibilities for teenage rebellion reasons when these kids are old enough.  And I thought I had it bad at age 15!!!!! 

I tend to see a link in:  Oppression of women = viewing women as baby machines

Mind you, I do think babies are precious but I don't necessarily believe that quantity equals quality.

Some religions foster woman as baby-machines (Catholicism included, unfortunately), some cultures foster it.  But as I said, it's part of the destruction of our world if it continues.  Okay, I'll climb down off my soapbox now.

I'm glad someone is helping.
Shame on this administration!
I'm very glad you're here.
I enjoy reading your posts.  I hope you stay. 
Then I'm glad you know Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11

and that they had no WMDs. 

Glad to not be a democrat. Please sm



Senators vote on English




33 Senators Voted Against English as America 's Official Language June 6, 2007


On Wed, 6 Jun 2007 23:35:23 -0500, "Colonel Harry Riley USA ret" wrote:




Your vote against an amendment to the Immigration Bill 1348, to make English America's official language is astounding. On D-Day no less when we honor those that sacrificed in order to secure the bedrock character and principles of America . I can only surmise your vote reflects a loyalty to illegal aliens.


I don't much care where you come from, what your religion is, whether you're black, white or some other color, male or female, democrat, republican or independent, but I do care when you're a United States Senator, representing citizens of America and vote against English as the official language of the United States


Your vote reflects betrayal, political surrender, violates your pledge of allegiance, dishonors historical principle, rejects patriotism, borders on traitorous action and, in my opinion, makes you unfit to serve as a United States Senator... impeachment, recall, or other appropriate action is warrented.


Worse, 4 of you voting against English as America 's official language are presidential candidates: Senator Biden, Senator Clinton, Senator Dodd, and Senator Obama. 


Those 4 Senators vying to lead America but won't or don't have the courage to cast a vote in favor of English as America's official language when 91% of American citizens want English officially designated as our language. 


This is the second time in the last several months this list of Senators have disgraced themselves as political hacks... unworthy as Senators and certainly unqualifed to serve as President of the United States.


If America is as angry as I am, you will realize a back-lash so stunning it will literally rock you out of your panties... and preferably, totally out of the United States Senate.


The entire immigration bill is a farce... your action only confirms this really isn't about America ; it's about self-serving politics... despicable at best.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way
I have a really hard time with the religous nut bags who have their own idea of what is right or wrong. Maybe right and wrong is not the correct words. I just wish they would mind their own busness and not push their opionions/viewpoints on other people as though what they say is correct. Like one poster said years ago there was segregation... can't imagine that happening today, just like inter-racial marriage or gay marriage. What is wrong with sharing your love for another person no matter what shape, color, size or sex they are. I definitely think this needs to be changed - period! There should be no question about gay marriage. You love a person and want to get married then that's it you get married. The question is when is some politician going to stand up and do the right thing. So I say live in peace and harmony. Do not tell me how I should and should not live and I won't tell you how you should or should not live. And for pitty's sake - stop making gay marriage a political issue. It is a personal issue between two people and nobody's elses business unless they want to tell you about it. - Okay that's my rant of the day.
Not hardly. I am glad for her support....
but unlike the rest of you, I do not post to support myself. I do have the courage of my convictions and all the bullying and badmouthing you all throw my way only makes me more determined. So pile it on, bullies, pile it on. apparently that is what you need to feel empowered and relevant. Go ahead, knock your socks off. If you are raggin on me you are letting someone else rest.

And you better be glad that someone is willing to get in their face....
because that is all they understand, and that is why we have not had another attack in this country. It is precisely THIS kind of thinking that we DO NOT need in the white house. Diplomacy is fine...and many times it works. But your enemies have to know that if hit, you will hit back hard. I have no faith that Barack Obama would act decisively (like Clinton with Khobar Towers, the first world trade center bombing, the COle, and on and on and on). I don't want things like that happening again. I want them sitting back on their heels like they are now. John McCain will keep them there and he won't be having tea with Ahmadinejad without rules. It just shows that Barack Obama has no clue what he is dealing with. No clue.
Well, whatever happened, I am sure glad
Boy am I glad you both left....sm
There's only so much rudeness a person can take.

You call out sam on her posting everything...at least she's nice and civil....

You two...or three...people, are still, just downright rude, under your smug little comments and innuendos, accusing sam of the very same things you're doing.

No wonder people don't like coming here very much anymore, me included....yuck.

Hey sam....glad to see you, but I'm still checking out....have to...sm
type for living...

She was so cool. He couldn't trip her up, could he? The more I see of her, the more impressed I am.

And the whole Greta series this week has been great on Alaska and all the people who know her. We went to Alaska for our honeymoon in 2000, and went through Wasilla....it was a beautiful place, and great people....Real people....No wonder Sarah is such a gem!

Talk to you later....
Thanks, MT....I am glad if I have helped you in any way....
to research on your own and make up your own mind, no matter which candidate you decided to support. Good for you! :)
I too am glad there is something we agree on. sm
Sometimes it takes a personal experience to change our minds, open our eyes. We all need to be less judgemental, open our minds, and explore the possibilities before making decisions and opinions blindly. I believe marijuana should be decriminalized period.
Glad I could amuse you
you still need to get a life. Hope you like that one the second time too.
And I said I would be glad if either of them acted....
you and I differ. I think we are better served if they stay in Washington if for no other reason that to do the job we are still paying them for, as senators, and get the thing fixed. I can wait 2-3 days for the debate. It is not absolutely necessary to the nation's economy that they debate tomorrow night. In my opinion.
I'm just glad she's not a doctor, and I don't
Same to ya. I am glad you only have one vote...
although that is not stopping Obama's ACORN cohorts. Signing up Jive Turkey and the like to vote. He will take them however he can get them.
Well, it would if I thought like you....glad I
Great! I am glad to see you are going
to make your vote count! You have all the proof you need, Obama openly admits to his association to Ayers with their "community organizing" efforts. Also, and more importantly, Obama's first big campaign blast off was held in Ayers' own home! He does not deny this. I would say there is proof of association with a terrorist.
Glad you see the light.......
You said it. Glad we weren't the only ones.
I'm so glad we have this board
so that those of us who are less intelligent can seek advice from the super intelligent. LOL
p.s....missed you, sam....glad to see you...:-)

Glad to hear it! NM
I'm glad to know Sam is an independent
I would  have sworn she was a "rabid" Republican.  LOL 
No problem. Glad to help...

I am very offended by those comments.  We can gloat, but name calling of that sort (racism) is just plain out of line in my opinion. 

I honestly feel some of these posters go over the limit even with the "India" posts.  Yes, MT has offshored at this point, but there's no need to be nasty and hateful. 

Glad to see not much has changed :)
politics as usual! :)
Wow, Kaydie, am I glad to see you!

There are so many posts with no recognizable names that I'm totally confused.  Maybe I'm too new at hanging out here to know who posts what but I liked it better when people used the same name whether it was real or not so at least one could recognize the posters.

LOL...I'm glad you asked...(sm)

No....When I get spooked I walk around the house peeking into closets and under beds with whatever is handy....LOL. 

Glad you at least got a laugh...... sm
Yes, we definitely agree on this subject and for so many reasons that I don't think there is room to go into it all on this forum.

However, I will state with brevity that the Bible does speak very clearly and very plainly on the subject of homosexuality. It is wrong in God's (or as you put it our creator's) eyes. Therefore, it is considered a sexually deviant behavior, just the same as pornography, beastiality, etc.

And I do believe you are wrong in stating that it does not affect my life or my home because when my children see this sort of thing on the evening news or prostestors on the street, it is brought into my life and home and I then must explain to my children why I believe this behavior is wrong. Just as I told my sons last night (about a completely separate and unrelated subject) what you do affects others. No man is an island.

I do agree with you in the sense that all gays are not as extreme as the ones we heard about a week or so ago bursting into a church and distributing their fliers and descecrating the altar, but that is true of any sector of society....Christians, Muslims, tree huggers, those save the whales folks, etc.

People are not born with a "lifestyle." Babies come into this world as a blank slate not having been exposed to the various world views that are out there, so your argument about whether or not God would "create everyone with different lifestyles." Being poor is a lifestyle and while one may be born into a poor family, one does not have to remain poor. One might be born into a Christian family but there is no guarantee that person would be a Christian when he or she is of age to determine their own path in life. Lifestyles are chosen, not created by God.

I agree with you in that times are changing, and they seem to be changing more rapidly today than ever before. However, intellegence and independent thinking should not become so open-minded that one can no longer distinguish between right and wrong. When it gets to that point, and it is rapidly doing just that, we are doomed as a society as lawlessness and immorality will prevail.
