About John Kerry..... :-)..:-)

by Del McMullen / September 2, 2004 4:04 AM PDT

He throws away someone else's medals.
He drives someone else's SUV.
He marries someone else's wife
and He inherits someone else's money.
Maybe someday he'll be president of someone else's country

Yeah, if he was a real leader, he'd ride his Daddy's coattails to the White House, not his wife's!

Actually that might work in our favor

because he would be such a wimpy Commander in Chief of that military that we'd never have to worry about them being a superpower or an agressive country against us or anybody else.

As long as he doesn't.....

...refer to terrorists as the "folks" who attacked us or call them "evildoers" (couldn't Bush or his speechwriters come up with a better word?), he'll be a step up.

He couldn't exactly call them
by TONI H / September 2, 2004 4:39 AM PDT

'whacked Muslims' now could he? That would have been stereotyping and you and others of like thinking would have been all over him about that, too.

What would you call them........rebels, nut-jobs, disingenuous Iraqi citizens (when in reality they had others from other countries there helping them), thugs, bullies, monsters, animals, bottom-feeders......

I think subhuman was used once or twice......

Positively they aren't genuine and sincere Muslims....

Come on, Josh....you're grasping if you are now making an issue out of the word Bush used to describe the enemy.

"Evildoers" just has such a weenie sound to it. Surely they could have come with something better than that.

They do evil. Simple concept. Think about it for a while and you might grasp it.

I grasp it quite well, thank you. I saw their evil. I still see it quite regularly when I drive within eyeshot of NYC. Do you also think "folks" was a good, tough term to use to describe them?

I'm pretty sure that like the rest of us, the words that Bush would use to best describe these people are not suitable for use in the media...and unfortunately if he had used sterner words he probably would have been criticized.

It's possible I guess, but my hunch is that he wouldn't have been criticized as much as he was for the words he did use. IMO if there was ever a time when a few "frank" words would have been appropriate, that first speech in the wake of 9/11 was it.

"Folks?" I mean, come on.

It sounds like something UnderDog would say.

That's perfect for bush.

It's hip hip hip and AWAYYYYY I go!

Actually I think Dubya is closer to Shoe Shine Boy than his alter ego.

I think that Shoe Shine Boy would admit once making a mistake. That gives him a boost over bush.

couldn't find a jpg to depict the "KERnel".....a popcorn head coated in greasy butter so he could slip his head out of his *** easier.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
