    Could somebody pull out the dictionary and tell me what the definition is of "chock full." Is that a mathematic term? The only time I can remember that being used is in chock full of nuts. Please define.

    chock-full - definition of chock-full by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Google is your friend.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Well maybe some of "her own kind" and the NAACP can bring suit against the White House for being racist against blacks.

    Since it has already been provided for you by my very able colleague here, suffice to say my snarky friend, I see you can dish it, but have a hard time taking it.....typical.

    I think the admin and the NAACP are just nervously trying to avoid controversy. Elections are coming up and the news cycle is so short that you have to respond to crap like this because all people remember half the time is the original story, not the end result of responsible investigation.

    It's possible she could win a wrongful firing case of some kind, but I don't think it will be based on racial discrimination.

    The "White House" isnt known for giving reasoned and rational thought about ****. The White House is known for giving knee jerk politically motivated responses without actually thinking things through or reading legislation before they speak, act, or even sign things into law.

    But MAYBE...in an act that would set them apart from "the White House", the posters on THIS blog...and this thread in particularly, might demonstrate some character and integrity and actually admit that THEY were guilty of doing the same thing the White House did...knee jerk responding in a mindless and biased manner...and on this particular issue, they were wrong.

    What a concept...NOT that I will be holding my breath in anticipation...

    If thats the "official" dictionary for that word, I suppose I need to tell you you left out the dash.

    Your use: chock full Dictionary: chock-full

    Just looking for truth, aren't you? Where does anyone say that the Tea Party is made up mostly of racists? The NAACP does not. Doesn't this just allow you to push the debate into something no one has said.

    Source? (EDIT PS-Some Tea Party member's blog does not count-need a quote)

    Re: USDA Official Saying She Didn't Give 'Full Force' of Help to White Farmer resigns

    the Obama administration was correct to push this appointed employee out (2009 appointment - thankfully, she was still in her probationary period for the federal position)
    had she not resigned she would have been drummed out administratively for her actions which worked against the public's perception of the USDA
    she acknowledged she performed her official duties differently, depending on the race of the citizen needing her USDA office's assistance. that was tacit evidence of discrimination - a self admission
    but now she is complaining - after she voluntarily executed the resignation document
    it only confirms her cluelessness that she resigned and now complains that she was under pressure to resign
    the underlying problem is that Obama's political appointees have been as awful as dubya bin lyin's political hacks
    and that is a difficult admission to make. the level of incompetence of his appointees was not expected (by me, anyway)

    Former USDA employee says White House pressured her to resign - CNN.com

    Dunno - to me what she did at the time and what she conveyed to the NAACP was racist. She told a racist story. Now that it comes out she became friends with the farmer - that doesn't lessen or excuse anything. It was 1968 - one can say well --- it was the "times". Perhaps. And knee jerk by this White House? Absolutely - they wouldn't know a measured or thoughtful response if it bit them in the ass.

    There is a moral to the story though: Don't tell racist stories to groups of people where you have even a chance of being put on video. You can and will be held accountable for your past misdeeds.

    Remember: Macaca? No one ever heard of the word before ... but it was enough to cause outrage. And let's put this into perspective and turn it around. Let's say she was not black but was white - and these were poor black farmers. The same thing would have occurred - she would have been fired and the big outrage would have played out in the media just as it is now. In fact, this might be the most even handed and un-racist act, now that I think about it, the White House has divvied out. This would have happened if she was white, and it happened the same way that she was black. Hm... I may have to think about this some more and I might take back what I said about the White House.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it.
