Vent Page XLI - The BUSH version!

 The obvious choice to receive commemorative honors on our  41ST VENT PAGE is none other than our 41st President, George H.W. Bush. VP to Ronald Reagan, WW II Combat Veteran, a long and distinguished career in public service and one of the top presidents of the late 20th century! Defeated for his second term by the siphoning off of votes by a third party candidate which allowed Bill Clinton to back into the presidency with less than half of the votes cast! We miss you "41"!



Whenever the number of posts on a vent page make it cumbersome to navigate, a new vent page is started. This is number FORTY-ONE in our series!

VENT PAGES are handy for posting of off-topic posts, rants, raves, rages, etc which might not be appropriate on other threads where adults are having serious discussions. Childish rant? Need to call another poster a name?Just feel like spouting off? Or even if you have something to say and there doesn't seem to be any other logical place to say it....THIS PAGE IS FOR YOU!!

One of the most notable automobiles of 1941 was the all new `'41 Packard Clipper....a luxury car that was intended to move Packard back to the top of the luxury car market....unfortunately for the Clipper, and perhaps the beginning of the Packard downfall, WW II cut production short. Only a relatively few "41 Clippers were manufactured before factory production turned to war materials. By the time the war was over, the 41 Design was no longer cutting edge . Packard merged with Studebaker a few years later and was phased out for good in the 50's.

It is time for a little shake out in the primary. Maybe Fannie-mae can give Newt another mil or so. Then he can pretend as though he has a job to go back to.

Johnny Rico said...

The Senior Bush was the first of the RINOs. He was a real communist. Remember when he turned his back on gun owners? Remember that? He lost the re-election to Clinton due to his ban on semi-automatic weapon imports. He then quit the NRA showing his true colors. He also signed an immigration law which INCREASED immigration into this country. Boy that worked out well for us didn't it?

What a back stabber. Bush senior, like his idiot son who gave us the big government Patriot Act, did us no favors.

RINOs are freedom robbers. This is exactly why I will not vote for Mitt Romney who ranks right up there with the Bush sisters. Ron Paul gets my vote.

Johnny Rico

Sarkazein said...

Yeah, I remember that. Perot and Clinton had such pro-gun records Conservatives voted for Clinton and Perot.

PEROT
CLINTON
The youngest Naval war pilot WW2, Oil company owner, good family man, CIA Chief, elected Congressman, good neighbor, Vice President under Reagan, President when the Berlin Wall came down-- PRESIDENT GEORGE H W BUSH

Sarkazein said...

As a result of NOT voting for President George H W Bush, we got 8 years of Clinton. We also got Obama. Hillary would not have been in the Democrat primary against Obama because there would have been no Hillary (now supporting UN gun control laws) if there had been no President Bill Clinton and a better Democrat candidate would probably have beaten Obama. So whoever didn't vote for President George H W Bush, gave us Obama. Whoever doesn't vote for the next Republican candidate will give us another 4 years of Obama. The country will then be forced so far into Socialism and in ruin, Hillary will win in 2016, putting Bill Clinton back in the WH as First Lady. What a strategy.

guy faulkes said...

And this is probably going to happen again if Romney gets the nomination. When will the Republicans learn that to be viable, they have to return to their conservative base?

Sarkazein said...

I guess we can throw away the phrase-- "Better than a sharp stick in the eye". As for some, it is no longer obvious, it is a badge of honor.

Sarkazein said...

Let me see here, vote for the Republican nominee or plunge this into my eye... decisions decisions!

guy faulkes said...

Actually your post should be "Vote for a liberal of either party and do this", Sark.

Sarkazein said...

Any guesses on what Sheriff Joe's "Tons more damaging info on Obama" is? I am guessing he scammed the system by claiming either foreign born or US citizen... whatever got him his goals. So his name and birthplace appear different subject to whatever/whoever he was scamming. Most recently being the 2008 election.

The '41 Packard pictured would have cost 26 oz gold in 1941 ($32 oz). It would be the same now for a new luxury car, about 26 oz @ $1650 oz = $42,758.

I did a search this morning for Blogs from Boone NC.

This site came up very near the top. I admit that now I am ashamed to think if someone was reading blogs to get a feel for how the people of that area are that they would see the hate spewed here.

I do read blogs and editorial pages in the newspapers web sites of the towns i am considering moving to, once i sell my business here.

If i saw this site as a representation of Boone to the people considering coming here for any reason, I would not come.

Sarkazein said...

All I can say GIG is watch your mouth. Calling others bigots because they don't see eye to eye with you is hate speech......

G.I.G said...

Sark, anything i would call you here, I would to you in person with no hesitation.

G.I.G said...

I would say my use of the word Bigot is perfectly acceptable in the way I used it. Example here.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bigotry

Sarkazein said...

GIG- I don't care if it is in person or not, i was talking about your concern for people reading the blog. If you reviewed yours and Happy's comments you would have to agree they are hate speech.

guy faulkes said...

G.I.G., your fanaticism has cost you your credibility. This is a shame as you have made some very good points in the past, including some I did not agree with.

It is to bad you could not tolerate disagreement with your opinion.

G.I.G said...

Sark, NO i do not have to agree with you. I used the word properly to describe your stance. And to anyone else I offended by not tolerating intolerance so be it.

I am how ever voting to take as many rights away from as many as possible.

I have seen Sarks, light and why fight the majority?

Rights are only there to be taken, not granted, or defended.

NewGuy said...

GIG...On the Deborah Greene thread, you sarcastically commented that "Sark and Newguy are correct..." and went on to say, with more sarcasm I presume, that you would agree and would vote to deprive others of their rights.

This comment, directed at me came as a surprise since I had not, at that point, commented on the topic. And, since that time, have still not taken a position in any of my posts.

Rereading the two threads on this topic, it's obvious that several posters feel quite passionately about their positions but you have almost totally abandoned any logical argument in support of your position and instead have substituted ad hominem attacks against those who disagree with you.

It seems to be that the opinions being expressed on this blog are pretty much reflective of the feeling of the NC voting population as a whole.

It's a divisive issue - not even a partisan one. Democrats are about evenly divided in their position; Republicans are only slightly more consistent. The voters will decide in the first instance, the courts in the final analysis. Calling one another names isn't going to help.

G.I.G said...

NewGuy, I am including my self as a Bigot, as my voting for the amendment will be supporting the definition of the word.

I posted the link earlier today to the definition of Bigot. I agree with that definition.

If you find a more appropriate definition for it I would be happy to read it.

Here is the definition i used to support my use of the word please tell me where it is inappropriate.

Bigotry is the state of mind of a "bigot," a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one who exhibits intolerance and animosity toward members of a group.[1] Bigotry may be directed towards those of a differing sex or sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, nationality, region, language, religious or spiritual belief, political alignment, age, economic status or medical disability. Bigotry is sometimes developed into an ideology or world view

Johnny Rico said...

Sark,

Pro gun candidates did vote for Perot, but what is lost is the fact they DIDN'T vote for the loser Bush Senior. Gun owners felt betrayed by Bush Senior after being fed the usual RINO generated stance on guns - "I support the 2nd Amendment". The only thing a RINO supports is re-election.

Sark, we have lost as many gun rights under RINOs as we have under liberal socialist sheep. Bush Jr. proudly proclaimed that he would sign an assault weapons ban extension if Congress sent it to him. How's that for being a family man, a good guy, a "conservative"?

Sark, your own governor RINO Rick Perry is a taker of freedom. He will have his gestapo arrest you from your own home, without warrant, if you refuse to evacuate during a declared emergency. He has also sided with animal rights extremists to shut down so called puppy mills. Hunters with packs of hound dogs will be negatively affected by this big govt. approach. Not to mention he supported forced immunizations of young girls.

Yes, RINOs such as Romney might be even worse than a vile liberal socialist sheep like Hussein Obama.

It was our election to win, but that ain't gonna happen.

Johnny Rico said...

G.I.G (giant ignoramus gnat),

Who is racist on this site? Name one instance of racism that anyone on this site has engaged in. Your about as stupid as they come so I doubt you will be able to come up with anything.

Anyone who supports gun control, diseased, corrupt illegal aliens, and the nanny state over American ideals is far worse than a racist.

I donated to the Negro College Fund on several occasions. How is it that I'm racist when I help Negros get through college? Answer me that one you idiot?

This ought to be interesting......

Johnny Rico said...

Any other liberals want a taste?

Sarkazein said...

Johnny Rico- I am just not ready for the "all or nothing" political theory. It is great to talk about, but highly impractical. We would actually have to have a dictator with whom we all agree with, and he/she would have to have a rubber stamp Congress. It just ain't gonna happen.
President George W Bush signed into law the concealed carry law in Texas after Ann Richards vetoed it. He also allowed the assault weapons ban to sunset. I have some. I carry. I'm happy. It is better than a sharp stick in the eye.
Realistically, I don't see the options out there. WHERE is this ideal/electable candidate? We have the liberals fighting for one Utopia, ones enough.

Sarkazein said...

Speaking of the assault weapons ban, it was signed into law by Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton, was there because of Perot voters.

There was still a Democrat controlled Congress in '94.

Let's keep doing it until we get different results.

GIG said...

Ms Rico, would you be so kind as to quote where i called anyone a racist using that word.

I have called several to be bigots, including my self in my promise to vote to remove rights from as many groups as possible.

That's an entirely different word and definition.

Bigotry is the state of mind of a "bigot," a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one who exhibits intolerance and animosity toward members of a group.[1] Bigotry may be directed towards those of a differing sex or sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, nationality, region, language, religious or spiritual belief, political alignment, age, economic status or medical disability.

Sarkazein said...

GIG- Going by memory.... You equated being against same-sex marriage to being against civil rights of minorities and of being for slavery.... as in a racist. You even equated it to wife beating and being abducted and anally probed by space aliens.

Sarkazein said...

GIG- In fact, most of your comments were equating the anti same-sex "marriage" opinion to the racist bigotry of the civil rights era.

G.I.G said...

Sark or what ever personality your posting as today, my question was for Ms Rico. And your blatantly lying again i never mentioned you being anally probed.

That would be a gay type experience by your descriptions and we know you could never tolerate that.

G.I.G said...

Ms Rico, This insult by you is a bit of an oxymoron if i may sugest some more appropriate insults. Bieng giant and a gnat at the same time makes very little sence. (giant ignoramus gnat)?

May I suggest
(giant ignoramus Giraffe )
(giant ignoramus Gazelle )
(giant ignoramus Gemsbuck )
(giant ignoramus German Shepard )
(giant ignoramus golden retriever )
(giant ignoramus gorilla )
Or my personal favorite
(giant ignoramus Great white shark ) )

G.I.G said...

Sark , Every time you and I succeed in doing away with one of these rights or protections we should go for drinks here is a good starting list for us.

1. This amendment is not needed to prevent gay marriage: there is already an NC law forbidding gay marriage.
2. This amendment bars the state from recognizing any legal domestic union other than marriage, including partnerships between unmarried men and women.

3. Similar laws in other states have been struck down by the courts - meaning NC will face substantial legal costs to defend the amendment if it passes.

4. This amendment would take away legal protections for the children of unmarried people, including healthcare and prescription drug coverage provided though an unmarried parent and child custody, child support and visitation rights.

5. A child could even be taken away from a parent who has taken care of them their entire life if something happens to the other parent.

6. This amendment would take away domestic violence protections for all unmarried people and could lead to the convictions of their abusers being overturned. This has already happened in another state.

7. The amendment would automatically strip health benefits from unmarried people who receive coverage through their partners, including people with severe pre-existing conditions.

8. The amendment would interfere with the right of unmarried couples to visit one another in the hospital and to make emergency medical and financial decisions if one partner is incapacitated. It would also invalidate certain trusts, wills and end-of-life directives.

9. Seniors wanting to keep these legal protections would be forced to marry, which could cause them to lose their pension, health care and Social Security benefits.

10. If passed, it would be one of a handful of times our state constitution has been used to take away rights rather than grant them. You have to go back over a hundred years to find similar instances (notably forbidding interracial marriage and taking away the right to vote from African-Americans.)

Sarkazein said...

GIG- That would be the opinion of ProgressNC... they also support Occupy Wall Street.

G.I.G said...

Sark, i am just trying to support your positions and encourage you to not be mad at me any longer.

For each right revoked or stripped from anyone not straight and married, I will buy the 1st round for us.

Also sorry to hear about your probing, I hope you have one of those little doughnut cushions to help with that.

Sark, what is your position on alien and human marriage ? Seeing as your probing leaves you the forum expert. Was it a male alien, a female alien, a transgender alien,?

And should that alien develop a strong loving bond with you should marriage be legal between the two of you ?

In my opinion no matter how many feeling you and your prober have it should not be legal in NC for the two of you to marry.

Giant Ignoramus Gnat (GIG) said:

" Bieng giant and a gnat at the same time makes very little sence. (giant ignoramus gnat)?

GIG - A gnat can be a large gnat when compared to other gnats. Your perception, one typical to humans, is that all gnats are exactly the same size. If this were so, I wouldn't be correct in naming you so. The truth however, may astound you. Gnats do come in various sizes; some big, some small, and some giants. Just like liberal socialist sheep. Some are plain old stupid liberals, some are fringe left socialists, and some are dangerous extremists (which are you).

You mentioned some other names you wish to be called. Knowing you're a leftist, I would be unable to call you a giant ignoramus gorilla because most leftists such as yourself cry racism when that word is used. Why is that? I wouldn't want to refer to you as a breed of dog because it would do dogs in general a disservice. Dogs are honest, wholesome beings unlike all liberals. Same goes for gazelles, gemsbucks and sharks.

Therefore, the name GIANT IGNORAMUS GNAT fits perfectly! LOL!!!!!

Johnny Rico said...

Anyone been keeping track of the lawful shooting of the black teen in Florida? The left immediately tried blaming gun laws and then, before they realized Zimmerman was actually a Hispanic, race. What does the idiot blog administrator for Watauga Watch and the liberal socialist sheep that follow him have to say about waiting for the facts before calling out gun owners?

I remember when Watauga Watch posters called Jared Laughtner a Tea Party Activist. Come to find out he was a fringe left liberal who was a fan of the Communist Manifesto. Even the liberal povs went off air for about a month after that! LOL!

Back to Zimmerman. Do you think for a second the police have any allegiance to this man? If they could find ANY reason to arrest him they would. That's what the police exist for - to arrest people. Now that a witness to the incident has been discovered, we may see some tap dancing by the true racists - Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Farrakan. The eyewitness says the black teen attacked Zimmerman as he was walking back to his SUV. He further says the teen was on top of Zimmerman pounding him until Zimmerman had no choice but to shoot him. By the way, the photo your being shown of the negro teen is one snapped when he was 12. He looks much different now.

Like liberals everywhere, the fringe left, as well as African Americans, rush to judgement. How in the world can any of us say Zimmerman is guilty based on what we know at this point? We can't. Like I said, if the cops could arrest him, they would in a heartbeat.

Also, anyone notice how Zimmerman is being called a "WHITE HISPANIC" by the news media now that they realize he isn't a white cracker Christian redneck good ole boy? The media is going to eat crow on this one!! LOL!! What in the hell is a white Hispanic? Are there white Negros, white Nipponese, white American Indians? The liberal news media has carte blanche authority to pretty much say anything they want with no repurcussions. Wake up America, they are doing a number on you.

Wonder what the fringe left will have to say when Zimmerman is cleared of all charges? This ought to be interesting......

It just keeps getting better and better don't it. Hussein Obama and the press will have a tough time dodging their rush to judgement. Sean Hannity too. I love it when liberals make themselves look stupid (which ain't very hard). It appears Zimmerman was involved in a "good shoot" and the "stand your ground law" was not a factor.

I know someone who knows someone who has read the police report. Whole different picture in the police report. Trayvon 6'-2+'' / Zimmerman 5'-4''. Trayvon in gangbanger attire whopping Zimmerman's butt. Zimmerman according to witnesses and 9-1-1 tape yelling for help.
Press shows 5 year old picture of Trayvon at 12 years old. Wolf's Head shows picture of Trayvon up until now.

I was duped too. I had pictured in my mind, a nice kid walking around a neighborhood when an over zealous whana-be Neighborhood Watch Captain over-reacts and shoots a child going for skittles. Oppps.

Johnny Rico said...

How come Hussein Obama and his liberal lap dogs in the media didn't report on the young white kid that was set ablaze by blacks a couple weeks back? Was that not relevant because the victim wasn't black?

Zimmerman was the victim the Trayvon Martin shooting. Zimmerman was doing exactly what he was supposed to do; exercise personal responsibility and watch out for his community. When the criminal Trayvon climbed a fence and entered a community where he didn't live, Zimmerman, a brown skinned Latino (somehow skin color is now relevant) naturally became curious.

Trayvon then attacked Zimmeran and was shot. How does a certain class of citizens rally in defense of a known criminal (Martin)? It looks like a good shoot at this point.

Notice how the media is starting to shift the story to Trayvon Martin's family or other offlining subjects now that race can't be made an issue? Sickening.

The current news media and big brother remind me of "The Hunger Games". Anyone seen that?

Go Zimmerman!

When the Supreme Court tosses out health care it will surely hurt Hussein Obama's chances for re-election. Even though I won't vote for a RINO like Romney (unless Sark convinces me otherwise), I still hope Hussein Obama loses.

Blogger said...

JR "When the Supreme Court tosses out health" There is your answer to why you may have to hold your nose and vote for a RHINO. Even if this Supreme Court does the right thing here, if Obama wins, he gets to appoint another judge and then everything goes against us. Romney will not put a Kagan or a Sotomyer on the bench.

guy faulkes said...

Romney would appoint the same type person, Sark. He is the father of government mandated health care.
