    The internet comments after the outhouse float picture and article are far more telling of what's happening in the USA today than the float itself .

    I said HERE. The question was asked of the forum.

    I spend a lot of time in Pennsylvania. I've never seen anyone hugging his Bible. I live in NH. We have far more rural than urban areas here. Never saw anyone clinging to a gun. I spend alot of time in Vermont, which is virtually all rural. Nobody hugging Bibles in Vermont.

    Fiscal Impact from City Controller:
    Should the proposed ordinance be approved by the voters, in my opinion, it would have a minimal impact on the cost of government.

    Meaning of Voting Yes/No
    A YES vote on this measure means:
    If you vote "yes," you want the City to change the name of the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant to the George W Bush Sewage Plant.

    A NO vote on this measure means:
    If you vote "no," you do not want the City to make this change.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    LOL... Is that real, or a prank?

    You know Pelosi's district will overwhelmingly vote YES on it as well.

    ---- ooopppsss...---

    That's already six years old, and passed by more than a 2:1 margin!

    OK, what sewage plant can we mane after Obama?

    So, if they don't consider it racist, is it racist? Don't you have to MEAN it to be racist in order for it be racist?

    In other words, you really don't want to check for yourself whether one side makes significantly more racist statements than the other side. Afraid of what you might find, hm? Probably not...because you already know what the result would be. And yet you still make the same political choice.

    mm-hmm...riiiight. Yeah, if only the blacks would stand quietly by when racists call their children n***ers, then everything would be just fine, huh?

    That leaves us with two possibilities - either you're being incredibly naive...or you're being disingenuous.
