I am sorely disappointed they weren't handing out "I voted for Ron Newman" stickers in Ward Six.
February 05, 2008 at 09:51 AM
Ron Paul is a frickin crackpot. I wouldn't give him the time of day. He's an invention of myspace and a grade-A Astroturfer. We're talking "Stade Olympique" here. Not to mention, he has two first names. I never trust a man with two first names.

Why do liberals try to blame Bush for everything? Aren't they ignoring the fact that the rest of the republicans had control of both houses for most of his presidency? They supported bush 110% in all of his disasters and now they are trying to seperate themselves from him by invoking Reagan. What a bunch of knuckledraggers!

I went to vote at the DANTE Club and it was closed this morning so I said to hell with it.
February 05, 2008 at 02:54 PM
It was closed? What time were you there? You should report this to the Election Department, 617-625-6600.
Ron Newman |
February 05, 2008 at 03:04 PM
Ron I did but they didn't seem interested. I am going to try to go back after work. I was there at 7:15
February 05, 2008 at 03:09 PM
I don't believe that it was closed at 715am - sounds like nonsense
February 05, 2008 at 04:34 PM
Who are the idiots voting for democrats? Those imbeciles are in the mud slopping around like a bunch of hogs. KKKlinton is thisclose to tossing the N word at Obama and he is thisclose to flinging the C word at her. They hate each other. Nice crowd those moonbats have. Real family values.
Osama Obama has been in the senate for 2 years - he ain't qualified to be dog catcher. Kankles Clinton will just be boozing it up whilst her hubby (Slick Willy) "interviews" interns all day. Yeah... good move... bring back The Clintons!
Use your heads and vote for McCain.
February 05, 2008 at 04:52 PM
Imux, has something been interfering with the microchip in your head? I'd swear with all the namecalling you cut loose with here, you'd be a dyed-in-the-wool Jr. Rushbo and as thus firmly in Willard's (and the GOP establishment's)pocket. What's with this love affair with McCain?
February 05, 2008 at 05:09 PM
Tricky, it's simple; McCain will win. Plus, I hate Romney more than I hate Osa.... Obama and Kankles. McCain is the man. More jobs... less Islamofacists - that's his motto.
I just hope and pray you moonbats send Hillary through... that will make for a fun summer. Kind of hard to hate Obama. Though... on further reflection... I do think he could be the Manchurian candidate. He was brought up under Sharia law... was schooled at Madrases.... wants be sworn in on the Koran (not the Bible)... he sounds like an Al Queda insurgent to me.
February 05, 2008 at 05:22 PM
yeah WHAT I love to go down there before work and stand around with my thumb up my ass. Perhaps if you got out of bed before 11 am you might believe....
February 05, 2008 at 05:31 PM
If the polling place was truly not open at 7 am as required by state law, that's worth a story in this newspaper (and its competitor).

Ron, the guy said is was not open at 7. Why would he friggin' lie? and why do you have to be such a weeney little ahole about it?
February 05, 2008 at 06:07 PM
Thank you IMUX. I got it in this evening and the ballot was BLUE Ron.
February 05, 2008 at 06:15 PM
Who says I was doubting him? I'm suggesting that the News look into this for a possible story.
Ron Newman |
February 05, 2008 at 06:17 PM
Ron, fucking cucumber polisher, if the guy did not want to be there at 7 there is no law against it. Are you going to sue this guy? If not, just shut up, freak.
Jimmy, fuck you too, smartass.
February 05, 2008 at 07:28 PM
What? State law requires all polling places to open promptly at 7 am and close at 8 pm.
Ron Newman |
February 05, 2008 at 07:35 PM
Ron, use your noggin'... the post by "Imux" at 7:28 wasn't by me. I have a few fans on this forum and they like to pretend they're me.
February 06, 2008 at 05:50 AM
And you still like to pretend that the Obama lies are true... makes your world easier, doesn't it?
We've already gone over that spam email that was based on lies and spread by your fellow conservatards at Fox news... you know it's false, yet you still believe it.
Just like there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, right?
February 06, 2008 at 09:04 AM
Craig, Obama and Hillary are toast in the general election now. Those tow idiots are going to drag each other through the mud even more now. We'll be driving the bus for another 4 years. Just deal with it. The adults are in charge. Go McCain.
What lies? These are facts: Obama was schooled in an Islamic school (Madras). His father(s) were moslems. He is only a pretend christian. He has no experience (2 years in the senate is nothing).
You guys should stick with the Hillary and Bill show. More entertainment value. Either way - the GOP is going to lay the wood to you guys in the general election.
February 06, 2008 at 09:09 AM
Even though I'm a Clinton supporter I just don't believe that this hate filled country will elect a women or black man to the Presidency. Not in our lifetime.
So it looks like 8 years of President McCain and possibly Huckabee as Vice President.
Dem. Disaster |
February 06, 2008 at 09:21 AM
I've been a conservative all my life. The McCain disaster will only destroy the conservative movement. Limbaugh is right. McCain is a liberal pussy. He is still mentally ill. He still has cancer. And the commies brainwashed him when they captured him. He will sabotage this country. The only viable choice for this country is Mitt Romney, as MA demonstrated.
Imux, you are a fake conservative, obviously. If you support McCain, you can go join the Ron Newman's types because you are like them.

February 06, 2008 at 09:51 AM
You took your mudslinging right out of the Karl Rove playbook. You are pure scum! Whether you like McCain or not, talk about what policies you don't have in common with him. But to try and belittle a true American Hero with your garbage is below contempt.
While McCain was being tortured your boy Bush was doing lines of cocaine, drinking up a storm and chasing women, all in the safety of this country.
You are true pond scum!

February 06, 2008 at 10:30 AM
If yolu think Mitt Romney is a conservative, then you must not have been around during the time of Barry Goldwater. In my view, he was a true conservative who brought pride and meaning to the term. Mitt Romney in his short political career has not exhibited many of the true conservative beliefs. Some, but not many. He seems to play to whatever audience he is speaking to and that is not conservatism. Its centrist or populist. If Barry Goldwater were around today, I don't know who he'd endorse out of this group as a worthy conservative, but I don't think it would be Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee. McCain is a good American and a Viet Nam POW who endured a lot which is a nobel thing, but even Ann Coulter said that Hillary is more conservative than he is. That's pretty bad.
February 06, 2008 at 11:20 AM
Romney was awful as governor - the idiot took the last 2 years of his term off to start his campaign. Then he gave zero support to Kerry Healey (the poor broad) and she lost to the numbnut, moonbat governor we have now (CADDY DUVAL!!!). All because Romney is a slime and flip-flopper. He's toast now anyway.
And...Who said I liked Rush or O'Reilly or Hannity? I don't even listen to 96.9 anymore - too much yelling and screaming for me. I do enough of that in my house everyday - I don't need the radio yelling & screaming too. Dilutes my message.
Go McCain 08!
February 06, 2008 at 12:17 PM
Democrats this and Republicans that. Because Massachusetts is a one party state, living here is like being in paradise. I would like to be able to vote for someone who is a liberal conservative (if there is such a term) someone who does not believe in starting new programs for old problems. Someone who actually thinks for themselves and does not try to be a candidate for all peoples and says yes to everyone in their party. Does war solve all problems? No it does not, but until we all become Jehovah Witnesses there will always be war. For that we do need someone who is strong. Do entitlements solve all problems, no they do not. People should have to work for the free housing,health care,food etc etc that they receive. I am not saying people on welfare should work 40hrs a week but unless there is a handicap preventing them from working, they should have to do some sort of volunteer work for no less than 5 hours a week. Back to the one party system not working. In Somerville we needed to pay a study group x amount of dollars to tell us the Mayor and other staff members were grossly underpaid. They pointed out to us that pay raises in the range of 25% to 75% should be given. Both parties are terrible and we have no one but ourselves to blame. In 1998 shortly after a joint British/US air strike against Iraq, Clinton spoke to the people of the US telling us that " Iraq has weapons of mass destruction and the world would be much safer if Saddam were removed from power". How many volunteers have lost their lives in Iraq compared the non-volunteers who died in WWII, Korea and Viet-Nam? These wars we were told were necessary for the survival of the free world and the US. I will end it here but I am sure after I get ripped for this article I will be back.

Obama was not schooled in a Madrasah (which, by the way, just means "school" in Arabic). It was a regular public school. Lie.
Obama has been a member of his church for decades. You may not think that his beliefs are strong enough for your personal brand of Jesusry, but if it's important to you, he is a Christian. Lie.
Obama was elected in 2004 to the US Senate. Took office in January 2005. That's three plus years. Lie.
Obama's father, who he barely knew, was Muslim. So what?
He was sworn in on a bible, not the Koran. Lie.
He was not raised under Shariah law. Lie.
So yeah, a bunch of lies in your post. You may not like a particular candidate, and that's fine, but do so for the right reasons, not for lies that you continue to circulate and believe.
Again, where were those weapons of mass destruction? You know, the ones where Rummy said he knew where they were? Hmmmm???
Yeah, thought so. Keep believing lies if it makes your silly life worth living, just don't spread your lack of reality around the internet, please.
February 06, 2008 at 12:41 PM
"Clinton spoke to the people of the US telling us that " Iraq has weapons of mass destruction and the world would be much safer if Saddam were removed from power."
There are a host of different alternatives to remove a dictator from power. Clinton might have said that before Little Georgie did, but I'm sure Clinton would have built a worldwide consensus and worldwide army to attack Iraq. Even Little Georgie's daddy knew better than to go it alone and to occupy that stinkhole Iraq.
To Hurst |
February 06, 2008 at 12:43 PM
William, I'm with you man. Wars are hell, but they are needed at times (to fight Al Queda and the Islamofacists). Good point that it was Clinton who - originally - told everyone Iraq had WMDs. These moonbats just want to bendover for the terrorists. If these liberals were around in the 30s & 40s would all be speaking German or Japanese.
There be should be no handouts. That's why we have families, Churches and charities. If you don't work - you don't eat. Darwin's law at it's finest. We got to thin the herd somehow - according to Solh there isn't enough oil to go around. Let's start with those who don't contribute and that way I can keep the Hummer fueled up.
Go McCain 08
February 06, 2008 at 12:47 PM
Does Obama's interest lay with Africa or the United States?
Can you imagine if you put in the words "Unashamedly White" or "We are an European people, and remain "true to our native land," or
"We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a White worship service and ministries which address the White Community."
The ACLU and Human Rights Watch would be all over the white candidate that went to a "church" like that.
"Trinity United Church of Christ"
We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain "true to our native land," the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.
The Pastor as well as the membership of Trinity United Church of Christ is committed to a 10-point Vision:
A congregation committed to ADORATION.
A congregation preaching SALVATION.
A congregation actively seeking RECONCILIATION.
A congregation with a non-negotiable COMMITMENT TO AFRICA.
A congregation committed to BIBLICAL EDUCATION.
A congregation committed to CULTURAL EDUCATION.
A congregation committed to the HISTORICAL EDUCATION OF AFRICAN PEOPLE IN DIASPORA.
A congregation committed to LIBERATION.
A congregation committed to RESTORATION.
A congregation working towards ECONOMIC PARITY.

February 06, 2008 at 12:53 PM
Yeah? So? This was already posted in an earlier post. Does that refute my statement that he's a church-going Christian?
Want me to list the idiosyncrasies of the Church of Latter Day Saints? Or the misogynistic overtones of the Southern Baptist Convention? Or the fact that the Catholic Church only officially recognized that the earth revolves around the sun within the last decade?
Do more than just take the emails you get forwarded and paste them into this post. So far you haven't said anything about his policies that you don't like, just lies and inferences.
February 06, 2008 at 01:00 PM
Craig, (me tapping foot).... waiting for your response about Obama's supposed Christianity. He's no Christian in my book. I'm warning everyone that I run into that this guy (Osam... I mean... Obama) is the Manchurian Candidate. He is no American. A vote for Obama is a vote for Osama.
February 06, 2008 at 01:03 PM
I was saddened to hear that McCain has been indicted and will quit his presidential bid. That Romney asshole and his libaloon buddies got him. Therefore, I will NOT vote in this campaign. This country is going to hell, fast.
February 06, 2008 at 01:06 PM
Imux, a vote for McCain is a vote for the commies that brainwashed him. McCain is the true Manchurian candidate. He was NOT tortured. He made a deal with the enemy while he was prisoner.

Not me. It looks like somebody is posting under my name and denying doing it. This is getting crazy. I bet it's Ron the midget pulling this. Or Craig. Or perhaps fucking Jamie himself.

Obviously, not me who posted this above.
Ok Craig, not you either. I wonder what kind of wierdo wants to take credit for some of my posts. That's a scary thought.
February 06, 2008 at 01:33 PM
And I believe I've already responded to your comment on his Christianity. He is a Christian. He goes to church. I've never talked to the man in person, but just because he doesn't drop a J-Bomb in every sentence, doesn't mean he isn't religious.
And religion is a highly subjective issue. Romney's church believes that you, Imux, are going to hell (assuming you're not a Mormon). In fact, they believe that all of your ancestors are in hell right now, and you have to baptize them now, long after they've died, in order to save them. But it's the world's fastest growing Christian denomination, interestingly enough.
They would consider themselves the ultimate Christians (and do- they are the chosen people in their view). You probably don't. I, for one, think it's a scary cult. But it's a subjective definition that can't be put up to a single standard, as much as the media and right-wing evangelicals want you to believe.
Frankly, I don't care whether he never steps foot in a church- we've seen what happens when a president claims to have a mandate from God and that Jesus told him to invade Iraq. I would have preferred having Bush back on the bottle and cocaine, since at least then his delusions of grandeur would have been less.
February 06, 2008 at 01:44 PM
"just lies and inferences" WHERE???????
I didn't receive an e-mail, I actually went onto their site and read there credo. Just use your little search engine and do the same.
To Craig |
February 06, 2008 at 01:44 PM
Lies: read my earlier posts. I was talking to Imux.
Inferences: that Obama is a racist who wants to bring African rule to the US (or some garbage along those lines).
You know, if you used that search engine a little better yourself you'd find about 100 articles refuting or clarifying the church's position. Try Snopes(dot)com. Or MSNBC. Or Newsweek. On and on and on...
But it's easy to lie and make inferences. As quoted from the Snopes page on this item: "But if it was the Holy Trinity Polish Church on Chicago's North Side, proclaiming its Polishness, who'd care? ...We're [African-Americans] defined racially even when we're acting like any other of this nation's ethnic groups."

Comments directed to "To Hurst"
Clinton was giving his reason as to why they bombed certain targets in Iraq. He did not say we should attack Iraq he told us why he did it. Google 1998 joint US/British air strike (Iraq) you can watch his speech before the US congress which will be on the on YouTube web site. Great speech, gives you the chills. I missed how many draftees you said were killed in action in WWII, Korea and Viet-Nam could you give that information again.
William Hurst |
February 06, 2008 at 02:08 PM
So is this, but you'd rather dwell on the fact that this congregation accepts its worldview openly, rather than lying about it as most do. I can cut and paste, too, but I like to provide a little context:
Mission Statement: What Trinity Is About
Trinity United Church of Christ has been called by God to be a congregation that is not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ and that does not apologize for its African roots! As a congregation of baptized believers, we are called to be agents of liberation not only for the oppressed, but for all of God’s family. We, as a church family, acknowledge, that we will, building on this affirmation of "who we are" and "whose we are," call men, women, boys and girls to the liberating love of Jesus Christ, inviting them to become a part of the church universal, responding to Jesus’ command that we go into all the world and make disciples!
We are called out to be "a chosen people" that pays no attention to socio-economic or educational backgrounds. We are made up of the highly educated and the uneducated. Our congregation is a combination of the haves and the have-nots; the economically disadvantaged, the under-class, the unemployed and the employable.
The fortunate who are among us combine forces with the less fortunate to become agents of change for God who is not pleased with America’s economic mal-distribution!
W.E.B. DuBois indicated that the problem in the 20th century was going to be the problem of the color line. He was absolutely correct. Our job as servants of God is to address that problem and eradicate it in the name of Him who came for the whole world by calling all men, women, boys and girls to Christ.
Dr. Wright’s talking points (3.1.7) for Trinity United Church of Christ its Web site and the Black Value System (in response to Erik Rush’s comments (2.28.07) on the Hannity and Colmes show):
• One of the biggest gaps in knowledge that causes the kind of ignorance that you hear spouted by this man [Erik Rush] and those like him, has to do with the fact that these persons are completely ignorant when it comes to the Black religious tradition. The vision statement of Trinity United Church of Christ is based upon the systematized liberation theology that started in 1969 with the publication of Dr. James Cone’s book, Black Power and Black Theology.
• Black theology is one of the many theologies in the Americas that became popular during the liberation theology movement. They include Hispanic theology, Native American theology, Asian theology and Womanist theology.
• I use the word “systematized” because Black liberation theology was in existence long before Dr. Cone’s book. It originates in the days of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. It was systematized and published by theologians, Old Testament scholars, New Testament scholars, ethicists, church historians, and historians of religion such as Dr. James Cone, Dr. Cain Hope Felder, Dr. Gayraud Wilmore, Dr. Jacqueline Grant, Dr. Kelley Brown Douglas, Dr. Renita Weems, Dr. Katie Cannon, Dr. Dwight Hopkins, Dr. Linda Thomas, and Dr. Randall Bailey.
• These scholars, who write in various disciplines, also include seminary presidents like Dr. John Kinney and professors of Hebrew Bible, like Dr. Jerome Ross. Black liberation theology defines Africans and African Americans as subjects – not the objects which colonizers and oppressors have consistently defined “others” as.
• We [African Americans] were always seen as objects. When we started defining ourselves, it scared those who try to control others by naming them and defining them for them; Oppressors do not like “others” defining themselves.
• To have a church whose theological perspective starts from the vantage point of Black liberation theology being its center, is not to say that African or African American people are superior to any one else.
• African-centered thought, unlike Eurocentrism, does not assume superiority and look at everyone else as being inferior.
• There is more than one center from which to view the world. In the words of Dr. Janice Hale, “Difference does not mean deficience.” It is from this vantage point that Black liberation theology speaks.
• Systematized Black liberation theology is 40 years old. Scholars of African and African American religious history show that Black liberation theology, however, has been in existence for 400 years. It is found in the songs, the sermons, the testimonies and the oral literature of Africans throughout the Diaspora.
February 06, 2008 at 02:17 PM
Craig, the issue is do most voters bother to understand that his church stands for it's African roots? Yeah... if a politician was in a church that was Polish or Italian-centric - and promoting it big time - you're damn right the media would make a big deal of it.
For some reason, Obama gets to skate. Things that make you go "hmmmmmm....". It doesn't matter anyway. You have a better chance of seeing God than Obama getting elected.
February 06, 2008 at 02:43 PM
The real issue is: IS MCCAIN A TROJAN HORSE? The answer is a clear YES!
The recent documents found by the Center for Conservative Preservation, show that he received large sums from the Korean Government, for example. Why? I hope the media starts reporting these facts more broadly.
In any case, the most likely scenario, right now, is that Romney will drop out and Huckabee will become the conservative alternative to McCain and bag the nomination. Thank God.
