Jug Ears' Pastor

I've read all sorts of stuff about Jug Ears' church and his pastor. Like how he's a race baiting anti-American. Looks like ABC news has decided to throw in with the Clintons. Or maybe Jug Ears wants to get this stuff out of the way before the election. At least there's consistency. Jug Ears' wife hates America and so does his pastor.

I'm just curious. What's the difference between white racism and black racism? Could any black readers, like Dkelsmith, explain this to me?

Thanks to PJ.

If McRINO went to a church that had a white separatist as a pastor, his campaign would be history.

The only difference is that one is accepted as "gospel" and the other is called racism. If I ever saw that bastard on the street, I would knock his ass out and then spit in his face.

Forget membership in the church, remember the grief GWB caught just for giving a speech at Bob Jones University?

WTF?

Another mulatto. But this time he is definately more white than black (skin anyway).

He's a white man with minor negro features.

What did she say? It is what being black in America means.

No. It's what being a nigger in America means.

Don't give me that shit. We all know the differance between being a black man and being a nigger.

So all you rednecks out there.

What the hell is a high yella? Some guy I worked with in Atlanta used to use that term all the time but would never splain what it meant.

Racist! No Just the Truth......

Looking at those idiots who defended their pastor with his BS Rhetoric ....I suggest a direct Airflight to Ruwanda & toss them off the plane then check back with them in a month or so to see how they feel now being back home.Do you think they would want to come back to the United States?

So what's the problem here?

If you don't like Uncle's message, then don't listen to him or give him the further forum of your Blog and for God's sake don't tithe him any money.

I assume you don't begrudge him his right to say what he has to say? I watched the video twice and I failed to see anyone herding folk into the church, locking the doors & forcing them to listen. I listened, took a grain or two, and shrugged off the other 98%.

So what's the problem here?

Posted by: DanS. on March 13, 2008 10:00 PM

Well, there you go DanS. That IS the problem. Nobody forces Obama to attend that church and listen to those sermons. He does it of his own free will. These are the people he chooses to associate with and the sermons he wants to hear.

I'm just curious. What's the difference between white racism and black racism?

This deserves a topic/thread all it's own.

Peggy U:

These are the people he chooses to associate with and the sermons he wants to hear.

Isn't that a rather broad brush to be painting with? The people I choose to associate with and the sermons I want to hear are two entirely different things to my mind. I have control over the former and only the ability to accept or reject the latter. Further, what I hear is not an either/or proposition. We have the ability to shrug off what we don't agree with and accept what has value as a percentage of the whole.

Surely you and those you attend service with are not always in agreement with what is being preached, yes?

Posted by: DanS. on March 13, 2008 10:21 PM

Blacks only see White racism...f'me, don't get me started.

Posted by: vicki on March 13, 2008 11:01 PM

DanS -

No sir! I don't attend a church where I don't agree with what the pastor says. I leave and I meet the people I want to associate with somewhere else. Lots of churches. Not all pastors are racists.

I teach the poor, black kids he's talking about, the ones from single parent households and I'm here to say the people holding any of them down, holding any of them back are other blacks. They're told they can't succeed, education is a white scam for idiots, they'll never be anything, and somebody owes them something and they shouldn't do a thing 'til they get it.
It's tragic the way they've bought into the welfare lie and welfare mentality. The American education system is run by liberal idiots who think if we just throw more money at the problem we'll fix it. My students are provided with whatever they can't afford and they destroy it because nothing unearned is valued. There is no reason these kids can't succeed if they decide they want to...free tutoring is offered before & after school and on Saturdays with busing provided...guess who doesn't show up? Graphing calculators are given to kids who can't afford one...guess which ones are mysteriously lost within days? Refurbished computers and printers ar offered for writing papers...they sit there unclaimed.
No, it is not Whitey's fault the black man isn't succeeding...it is the black community's fault.

I thought the South had the KKK corraled and under control. Now we find the black KKK is alive and well in Chicago (hidden as a church) and being financed by Hussein Obama, what $20,000 in donations in 06? Makes you wanna puke up your supper.

Oil Field Trash:

BlameBlameBlameBlameBlameBlame!

Could you possibly share some of your SUCCESS stories in dealing with your "poor, black kids"?

You say: "The American education system is run by liberal idiots who think if we just throw more money at the problem we'll fix it." and then go straight to how you are doing EXACTLY what you denounce! You do this while being PART of the "American education system"!

As a Senior Professor (soon-to-be-Emeritis) at the post-secondary level since 1970, we see at our University all too often the fruit of your endeavor.

You have never instilled self-respect and REASON for self-respect within your student population. You have thrown what you call opportunity at your student; you have made available those things that you thought might work for them because they have possibly worked for you.

What you obviously are NOT doing is meeting your Student where they are and figuring out ways to instill self-respect as they define it.

Might I share a technique with you?

It's called "Tom Sawyer Teaching"; Tom has to whitewash Aunt Sally's fence; Tom would rather be fishing. Tom knows the fence has to be dealt with and sez to each stroller-by what they CANNOT do and inspires them to give him the like of an apple-core; a spinning top, a kite, a robin's egg for the RIGHT to be able to whitewash Aunt Polly's fence.

Do you 'see' it?

The JOB gets done not by providing brush, bucket and sauce; the job gets done by buy-in LABOR! Labor that has intrinsic VALUE to the one who is otherwise DENIED an opportunity.

Of course, the REAL name for what's described here is "Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning". In short, it says that you get the BEST learning by denying that the subject Can learn. But that takes tact & empathy.

You throw your bus, your graphing calculator, your Saturday class at me and I'd trash 'em too IF

...

if I thought YOU had all the answers and all the resources and all the desired things and all that was left to me was to dance & jump through the various hoops and doors that you put in front of me.

Because, you see, if you can put those things in front of me, the first message it sends is that you can take them away.

And so, as a "poor, black kids" educator of 38+-years, I hope you understand where the 'problem' truly lies: BlameBlameBlameBlameBlameBlame!

Regards & Best Wishes!

The problem is that when the teachers try to instill pride and love of learning in the kids, the society all around them works to tear it down. The kids might get all hipped up to learn and then when they walk out the door they get beat up for acting white and all their friends and neighbors tell them they are acting uppity and won't have anything to do with them. You can try but the kid has to make the choice - and what choice is the kid obviously making.

I am reminded of a black friend of mine who was born in 1929 in Passaic, NJ. She told me that when she was little the men of the neighborhood would borrow books from the library and read them and hold discussions at the various homes in the neighborhood. The pastor would lead the groups or a teacher or, in some cases, a union official. They would read all kinds of subjects and discuss them. Their kids were expected to study and try to improve themselves as well. She ended up as a college professor at Va Tech and Fairleigh Dickinson in nursing, was head nurse at a couple of hospitals and then ran a visiting nurse service herself. She also set up a couple of businesses which also worked out well. Now she is retired. She and other friends who also did well offered to help people who wanted to own their own business in developing business plans and funding to make them work and then help them get started. That was 8 years ago. Not one person has stepped up and yet the people are complaining that there are no black businesses in their neighborhoods. Care to explain how all your training of teachers has helped that situation out in the past 38 years? Yet you complain when someone who is trying to help is stuck because of the societal mores and practices.

I think you've missed the salient point:

With tact & empathy, tell someone/anyone what they CAN'T do and then stand away and watch what they CAN do.

Posted by: DanS. on March 14, 2008 01:02 AM

DanS. and anyone else who isn't a little alarmed, you really should listen to Levin's take. If you're pressed for time (and have already heard the pastor's speech), skip ahead to 6:30 and listen from there, at least. For a wrap-up, click on 18:00.

Furthermore,(as Mark addresses) the freaking hypocrisy of the left the way they raked Romney over the coals for his Mormanism (which certainly does not spew hate) disgusts me.

And BTW, don't confuse Mark's passionate righteous indignation with "hate" as my confused brother does. I'm angry, too. Anger and hate are not synonymous.

Posted by: Mo K. on March 14, 2008 01:10 AM

I agree with Claudia, DanS. The main reason I attend (or should I say "have attended")church is because the the church fits with my philosophical views. This "fit" is largely determined by the pastor (or minister, etc.). He or she is integral to the personality of the church. How many people have you known who have quit a church when the pastor left? In my experience, this is common. The last I heard, people were still free to choose their house of worship. Obama lives in an area where there are many choices for worship, but he has been going to the same church for 20 years and his pastor is now on his advisory committee. And you're telling me he doesn't listen to and value what that man has to say? The church he belongs to is not mainstream; it's a radical fringe church which Obama's own mother feels is too extreme! No, he isn't going there because he kind of sort of likes some of the sermons and the congregation. The church and the pastor "fit" with Obama's views or he'd have found something else long ago.

You say:

Yeah? So what's new & different about that? You don't think I experience that here, there & everywhere each and every day?

What I hope to do to combat that is to also instill a sense of Courage of Individual Commitment. What was the Lincoln quote on this .....

Mr. Lincoln: I do the best I know how; the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings us out wrong, ten thousand angels swearing I was right will not make it different."

If you TRULY instill within one the Courage of Conviction, one need not worry if the "Community" sees reason to denigrate & debase. The 'Courageous-One" will suffer all the slings & arrows and smile inside, KNOWING that they have something the 'other' cannot touch and will be content to happily die with such certainty within themself.

Ask any Marine, Firefighter, Policeman, EMT or even (dare I say it!) any suicide-bomber.

Posted by: DanS. on March 14, 2008 01:45 AM

Peggy:

How many people have you known who have quit a church when the pastor left?

And I would ask in response:

How many pastors' have been forced to move on because what they had to say did not resonate with the congregation?

The key word here IMHO is "congregation".

Do we 'congregate' with those who think likewise & similar only to what WE think? Or do we perhaps 'congregate' with those who are similar to us in but having questions about things?

I, for one, would not attend a service where everyone thought alike prior to the sermon. I would like a sermon that was simply thought-provoking without any command to buy into any 'first-principles'.

I was born & raised Irish Roman Catholic and attended Seminary boarding school from Grades 9-11; one of the MAIN THINGS I learned from that environment was Structure & Discipline. Perhaps the MOST important thing I learned was to QUESTION things within a structured and disciplined context.

To that end, I accept nothing without a structured and logical discourse. To that same end, I receive & listen to any and all argument; whether I agree with it or not is another story.

I think anyone who listens to another with UNQUESTIONING BELIEF is but a twit. I think further that anyone who paints entire races, religions, political-inclinations or sexual orientation with such a broad-brush is not to be taken seriously.

If the like of a Barack Obama chooses to go to any Church of his choosing, he first gets my applause & endorsement simply for being better than lazy about getting up & about on a Sunday morning. He gets further praise for subjecting himself to whatever vitriol the pastor may see fit to subject his/her Congregation to that same Sunday.

He gets ultimate praise from me for coming away from the sermon with his ability to compare and contrast his own daily existence with what he's heard and form & voice his own opinion with those who have heard the same things he has.

Therein is what Fellowship is all about. Eucharist, if you prefer.

Lastly, the expression "What Would Jesus Do?"; would it not be better to ask of one's Self what would Jesus NOT do? And abide by the answers that one arrives at for one's self?

And you shall forthwith spend eternity depending upon the kindness of the niggers you hate.

Ain't that the GRANDEST thing, vetfromhell? :)

Aside from what the Preacher tells us, it turns out that we don't get to play the harp on top of of puffy clouds wearing the Toga of Truth but DO get to spend our eternity with all those things we never came to grips with here on Earth.

Which is why I'm only too glad to suffer now. You'll come 'round; I did. I know you will too.

DanS-
Can you really take this clown serious??

C'Mon.....

Posted by: CharlieDelta on March 14, 2008 03:20 AM

DanS: Pastors move on if they don't get on with the congregation. Sure! I've seen that happen. However, this pastor is a fixture. It is his church if he's headed it up for 20 years! Have you listened to what this man has to say? Seriously, take a few minutes and have a listen. Sorry, but I'm not buying your argument that Obama has been putting himself - and more tellingly, his wife and children - through this routine for that long in order to exercise open mindedness. Intelligent people just don't operate like that. A useful idiot sometimes does, but not a person with a functioning synapse! So he's either a tool who doesn't comprehend the toxicity of his church or a knowledgeable participant who agrees with the doctrine. Which of those choices is most appealing?

If he found the environment to be poisonous (and the point here is that this pastor is undeniably a race baiting hate mongerer), he would not be exposing his family to it, nor would he donate large amounts of money (which he has). Please apply some of your logic to analyzing these issues.

Posted by: Peggy U on March 14, 2008 03:22 AM

DanS you are really missing the point
I would NEVER stay in a church with this kind of hatred...so why is Obama???
What is his reason...he is not going there to hear the "other side" and balance out his thoughts..
This Pastor is a RACIST pure and simple and if Jug Head is going there to "worship" what will he bring to the presidency...it is a real scary thought and He must never be elected...we are ready for a black president...but not a racist one

I heard another of his sermons where he states, "the aids virus is a government created disease of genocide in order to destroy people of color."

So, where does socialism originate.

I am really tired of our world being brainwashed and run by "emotional" people whose psychological/spiritual weak character is shaped and exploited by the religion of victimhood.

Victinhood breeds socialism.

Obama is a true socialist.

But knowing the liberal media, they will go ballistic and try and find out who leaked the tape of their boys preachers hate speech. Im sure they will defend this nut, and take the tact of freedom of speech.

Posted by: silas on March 14, 2008 11:02 AM

What we are seeing here is liberal and media double-standard at it's most basic level.

If it is not Rommney and Mormonism, it is George Bush and his religious nature. Or John Ashcroft. Any Conservative politician that even hints at a faith in God brings out cries of "Impending Theocracy" and calls of "Separation of Church and State".

But let Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson campaign in a church and raise political donations there, and nothing. Obama's pastor is tied to Louis Farrakhan and is spewing the most rasist and vile hate speech that would land a white man in jail.

And to Dan's point, he is correct. No one is forcing the Obama's to remain members of that church. So there are there by choice. And that means they support and agree with a proven and admitted racist.

Really says a lot for Obama and the type of "Change" he plans to bring to Washington.

Posted by: StanW on March 14, 2008 11:21 AM

DanS -

You seem to be an intelligent and religious man. I don't understand you not being upset that Mr.Obama attend this type of church. You're stretching the truth beyond limit with your defensive argument. It's an insult to Jesus to bring His name in the company of people preaching hate and racism.

Do you have to condone everything your candiddate does? You can still vote for Mr.Obama and admit that he should not attend that church.

I don't agree with you that it's better for him to bring his family to that church than to laze around on Sunday. You can worship God at home if you can't find a decent church. That's what the first Christians did instead of going to the temples.

Posted by: Claudia in Toronto on March 14, 2008 12:08 PM

DanS......

I wondered how long it would be until you wandered off the reservation again......The first clue was you defending an avowed Racist Black preacher who is taking advantage of his flock,then when you patted yourself on the back & tried the liberal approach of assumed educational superiority to qualify your position cinched it.

Danny Boy!...let me give you a clue, it is very hard to make a point or convince anyone of your point of view when you are talking out of your ass.This has been a problem for you as long as I have read your postings , One would think given your alleged educational background a clue or two would have sparked some comprehension on your part.

I really do not give a rats rear end for your educational background as most professional educators I have met or had to deal with lack any common sense or believe in this country as it was conceived by our founding fathers & forged by the actions of those who comprised the Continental Army.Besides,I have to wonder just how much influence tenure had with your success as opposed to competence?

Racism is racism whether it is uttered by a white man or a black man. The pastor in question , the topic of this thread is a dedicated Racist who preaches hate, who has damned America from the pulpit & derides those of color who have shown it is possible to make it in this country. Your alleged understanding & defense of him is reprehensible, illogical & marks you as an educated fool just like those who were pointed out as running the educational system in this country.

What you so carefully chose to ignore is the fact Obama has stated many times how much he has looked to this man for guidance & proclaims he is what he is because of this Racist. Given the hatred for the white people of this country, the hatred for blacks who have been successful & asking for God to damn this Nation which has been spewed out by the good pastor...to declare this kind of guidance has made you who you are should raise a question in anyones mind as to suitability for POTUS.

I sympathize very much for some of the difficulties you have had in life since your tour of duty in Nam & assimilation into society but when you attempt to support or make allowance for those who condemn this country ...well I have to speak out against you then Dan. Loyalty to my country is more important to me then your drivel.

Posted by: dudley1 on March 14, 2008 01:11 PM

Meal Boortz and Rush were on this subject today like stink on shit....or white on rice!

Racist anti-semantic SOB.

Posted by: vicki on March 14, 2008 01:15 PM

The major fault in our education system today lies in the fear that we might hurt someone's feelings. I'm supposed to be OK with the attitude of the two girls arguing about whether it's financially better to have a babay with Downs or with Sickle Cell. I'm supposed to adjust my work and tests for the kids who have learning problems (like ADD)...because their boss is going to do that for them I'm sure. We don't make kids memorize the multiplication tables. I'm teaching high school students who can't add and subtract one digit numbers without using their fingers...and these are NOT children with mental handicaps.

I work hard everyday to instill a desire for learning...Education is the one thing no one can take away from you. I have been to every conference, I've read every book. I use every trick I've been taught to engender in these kids interest and self-motivation.

But the black community they live in does not want them to succeed. I try to meet with parents and get them involved. There is little to no response. The kids I have that do succeed always have some adult in the their lives who takes an active interest and who doesn't put up with any crap from the student. Someone they are accountable to, someone they respect.

Please don't try to tell me that should be me. I can't be that person for 120 students. I have my own family, my own teen. Teaching is my job, not my life.

Posted by: Oil Field Trash on March 14, 2008 01:53 PM

Vicki.....

Were the Pastor a man of God & truth instead of a Racist hate filled poverty pimp then cherry picking would not be an issue. Even a fish would keep out of trouble if he kept his mouth shut.

Obama is defending his Pastor in support for his infuence to him? Kinda takes away from his qualification to be POTUS.

Posted by: dudley1 on March 14, 2008 01:58 PM

My understanding is that Obama chooses to attend this church and listen to this drivel that further perpetuates the common black belief that the "white" world is out to get them and we are inherently evil.

It is also my understanding that he also chose to let this person be the one to officiate his marriage.

I believe the Democrats would hold a conservative to a much higher standard in his decisionmaking (and have) if he truly expected to make decisions impacting 300 million American citizens directly, and the rest of the world indirectly. I think we deserve better than that.

Oblabba's pastor of 20 yrs hates the United States and white folks. I can't NOT believe that The Oblabbas feel any diff. Dah! Oblab had this Jeremiah Wright guy on his campaign advisory board, the guy presided over his wedding and christened his children, and is JUST now trying to distance himself? Anyone see him talking to Major Garret on Fox news last night? I'm no body language expert, but he looked pissed off. He stuttered and his blue lips seemed to turn dark purple with ire.
I don't go to church, it makes my butt itch. Point being, I wouldn't go to any church that preached politics or hatred of anyone-I don't go to the movies for the same reason.
I'm not buying B. Hussien Oblabba much like I didn't buy Bill Clinton's "I didn't inhale" BS. It's the same thing, only dummies buy it. Yep, DanS. you are a dummy. No need to deconstruct anything for you-you will more than likely parlay this further for your own 'victim' arguement thingy. Give us a break?
DanS. I've never said the N-word out loud. It's not polite. Here in lies the rub for you, your posts on this topic make you a white nigger. You seem to be carrying water for anyone who wants to lead any dope to the promised land of a Utopian Socialistim realm filled with rainbows, borscht and tellatubbies. While you may think waiting in a bread line is your social time, I find it tedious and unneccesarily annoying. I can make my own artisan bread and cash. I have mad skills!

Well, Obama spent 91 minutes with 32 reporters Sunday from the like of the Chicago Tribune to the NYT and they ALL came away satisfied that Barack didn't say One God Damned Thing Wrong Or Racist in regard to either his Church or the so-called Rezco-scandal.

Some of y'all are truly gifted at being chameleon!

I noticed that you attributed a number of things to me that I did not say; assumptions on things with no basis in fact;

Who said I was voting for Obama? Not me!
Who said I support what the Rev Wright had to say? Not Me!

Et Cetera, et cetera.

'some' of y'all either have a reading-comprehension issue or are deliberate in distorting things. No problem; at least you post.

When I say "Obama is your next President" it does not mean I said I'm voting for him!

When I say I support the RIGHT of someone to say something, it does NOT been I agree with what they say.

When YOU say Obama has no 'right' to hear things at a church of his choosing that you don't agree with, I have to wonder what you endorse for America at large.

DanS......
You defended Hillary before you said you were not voting for her.
You championed Obama before you said you were not voting for him.
You posted for the right of the good pastor to state his opinion even if it trashs the United States & asks God to damn us.
We get it wrong??....really now, just who is the dean at your educational institution, Professor John Kerry??? he has a problem with for & against just as you are afflicted. Indecision is aparently not just a political trait.
Tenure is the reasonable explanation for your survival in the educational profession....if you do not have tenure , I would advise you to hide your indecisive tendencies.

Back to the good Reverand....just as it is not OK to yell "fire" it is not OK for a supposed man man of God to request our Creator to Damn this country which is the most benevolent ever to have been on this planet. He is a Racist & promotes a divisive agenda which does not deserve support or encouragement from anyone who considers themselves to be an American. Danny boy, when you give even tacit approval for this type of rhetoric ....I will speak out against you.

What would I Propose for America at large?.....

1. An educational system which challenges the student to learn , demands the teacher actually teach & the school administration to put forth a curriculum which rejects meaningless electives & requires fundamentals for English composition, reading, writing,mathematics, geography, world & US history & responsibilities of American citizenship.A comprehensive national exam to demonstrate a minimum of 70% knowledge for the curriculum presented to move to the next grade.Scrap the no child left behind Baloney , we should cultivate our best & brightest
2. A requirement for all citizens to register & vote as a civic duty.
3. A national Photo ID card to etablish you are who you claim to be & alive when you present it to vote.
4. Scrapping of the existing joke for selection of presidential candidates with one Primary day across the country with the delegates apportioned by each state according to voting percentage.VP to be selected by the winning candidate subject to convention approval.
5.Revisit the Selective Service System to require a 2 year commitment for all American youth , no exceptions , no deferments.
6. eliminate welfare ....establish workfare for those physically capable , no work , no pay. Nofree ride for minority women just because you know how to pop a new kid out every year or so.
7. Revamp social security to the strict guide line of a retirement program for American workers, include all federal, state & municipal employees. Allow for individual contribution`s in excess of minimal payments which would be invested into private investments or bonds so as to improve ultimate retirement income.
8.Establish a comprehensive medical insurance program with approved private contractors who must meet goverment guide lines , is portable with shared cost for the individual & their employer.
9.Revise the death penalty to be only for those of undisputable guilt...either caught in the commission of a given capital crime, confession or DNA evidence.Conviction of a capital crime with out the forgoing.......Life emprisonment
10.Revise Nafta to improving commercial interaction between Mexico, Canada & the United states but prohibit the practice of companies relocating & abandoning existing workers with out real justification.
11. Re-establish immigration quotas by country, close the border, hunt down & deport illegals.Require comprehensive study & understanding for the American system to qualify for citizenship including the ability to communicate in English
12. Constitutional amendment making English the official required language of the land.Prohibit dial (1)for English
13. I`ll end here....Free Meds for DanS anytime!

Dudley1 - NO:10... You're mentioning Nafta.I guess you're having problems too.

Many people in Canada would be happy if Nafta is revised. I'm not talking for my government but for small factories and many laid-off workers. It's incredibly hard to do "Made in Canada" products. How can our factories compete with cheap mexican labour and your illegal aliens? A great number of people here were opposed to the free trade agreement. Our then-prime minister, Brian Mulroney, didn't care. He was leaving. He left his party in ruin because of Nafta and the GST, a 15% tax he put on everything we buy except unprepared food.

I hope there will be some negotiations with your new president. Some of my friends have suffered greatly because of free trade. We have a minority government presently. We might have elections soon. I will vote for the candidate who will promise a different Nafta agreement. I got all the documents here, and I'm studying them to see what changes should be implemented.

I think it was signed hastily and Mexico got the better deal.

Why does anyone bother to respond to DanS.? I respect his service, but he really doesn't have any coherent points to make.

It's Denny's blog, and since he doesn't want to ban DanS.--and he certainly hasn't written anything to warrant banning--let 'im post. But--is there really any point in engaging in dialogue with him?

Posted by: Squidley on March 18, 2008 02:09 AM

To answer Willie's question regarding the term "high yella" (I've heard it pronounced "high yeller"): It's a Cajun term for mulatto. I didn't want to use the word Cunasse (pronounced coon-ass) because I didn't know if you'd heard that before now. That's another word for Cajun that's used commonly in TX.

Squidley......

Good to see a post from you again......You are right about DanS, but he is like a really hungry fish, dangle the bait & he bites everytime.
Anyway, what is your take for Obama, Hillary & McCain?
