Diamond, I'm just trying to state the absurd between trying to compare Bush lack of knowledge with my use of english.

Peace Diamond

Nevermind what the question implies about Bush's thoughts towards blacks in general...
Diemen-
thanks.

Cmon now,President Bush surrounds himself w ppl of color in his cabinet..all of which seem to be smarter -polictically and intellectually then him.:idea:
I think Bush is more 'colored-blind' then we think.
He told Bono in the Oval Office that the "Aids/Africa Crisis is GENOCIDE".
Hardly words from a bigot.

Peace-
Diamond

I wonder if he thinks America is even a little bit responsible. I'm betting he doesn't.

Diamond, I wasn't suggesting that Bush was a bigot, but that he thinks of blacks differently from the rest of the population. I suppose it just could of been boyish curiosity, but it just seems weird to ask that kind of question unless you have a different viewpoint on blacks in general as opposed to the rest of the population.

And surrounding yourself with people of color doesn't really suggest anything to me other than that you want to appeal to the black voting population - at least that's a big part of it.

I sorta agree w the first part..naive is more the word and he should spruce up on that area of demographics ect.

The 2nd paragraph means that you think Condi and Colin would allow themselves to be used..I disagree.

And you are ?......

Anyway, I would like to thank you or whomever for the kind words. Comparing me to Mr. Quayle and Mr. Bush is in fact a compliment.

I also want to congratulate you on meeting and knowing personally Mr. Quayle, Mr. Bush, and Mr. Evans.

Oh, and me too, though I still can't quite remember you...hmmmm

Z Edge, it appears your idea of a response to a challenge is to just laugh as if the other person is wrong. That doesn't cut it in a public forum.
Sorry I didn't realize this was your forum. Or is it?

I mean who are you anyway? "Kingpin"

Other than to instigate trouble so your cronies can complain about our responses, what is your purpose in all of your 100 or so posts?

I believe you to be hiding behind an alter.

Anyway, I guess with your logic I am damned if I do and damned if I don't.

How else should I respond to someone who refers to me as

deaf and dumb

calls me coward (at least 5 times in one post)


Not to mention that your thread here is just another re-hash of the same crap shoved down our throats every damn day.

Your whole purpose here is to start trouble, as proven again here in your remarks.

I'm not going to run tell on you like a little sniveling coward, but not only am I calling you out on it I will dish it back to you with a

And I will be watching you just as you are me.

Cheers

I don't know what his IQ is, though I don't suspect it's anything out of the average range.

I do, however feel that the man is ignorant when it comes to a number of world affairs, and moreso, I personally don't get the feeling he's particularly bothered by this ignorance. He's always struck me as a kind of happy-go-lucky guy, and therefore the fact he did or did not know who the Taliban was isn't something that was a source of irritation for him.

Oh, and btw, when people are nitpicking others' grammar, please keep in mind not everybody is an anglophone primarily. English is the third language I learned, and though it is one that I speak best, there's always a bad taste in my mouth when I see the grammar police rear their heads in a less than pleasant manner. If you want to teach somebody something, please do it constructively, not meanly.

And another thing on the issue of grammar. President Bush is said to have dyslexia, so if you still want to make fun of him for that in a mean-spirited way (calling him ignorant, among others) then that should be dealt with the same way as a if you were making fun of a handicapped child or a retarded person. Not very funny folks. I admit I may chuckle at his speech on the rarest of occasion, in a compassionate way.

And if english is not your first language, then you have NO BUSINESS criticizing Mr. Bush on his speech. Especially if your posts look like that of a 5th grader. I mean would you like it if I were to come and tell you how to pronounce words in your language? And I don't even speak your language? Huh?

Yet another doublestandard that goes on here in the name of jealously.

Peace
