      EXACTLY! That's my point. You don't understand the logic. Bingo!

      Confuse a liberal. Use logic and facts.

      I set the trap and you walked right in. Enjoy your little Cheney hatefest.

      Brad, you got it goin on dude. Your defining George Bush as a liberal is mad cool!

      I think it's not an accident that Brad's website has "stuck" in the title.

      He's just not clear on what may be stuck where.

      Dead Slow is very cool in his logics within this hot little dispute.
      And Dill Pixels, if necessary, I will get you to Korea & reeducate here for all your instigations together with John Heartfield (who is already incarcerated here in my private modern art museum „Pyeongyang Bay“ together with some others)

      Alfred-San Herr Dreiundzwanzig: Get me on a Stuka, a Junkers, a knifesmitty mono plane, just get me outta this neocon-man madhouse! Up is down, freedom is slavery, we had to destroy the village in order to save it, and the more the terrorists fight and kill us, the more successful our war on terror is!

      Stuck Brad (that's a kind of a nail, ain't it?): You caught me, steamed sir! I was gnawing off my leg in your trap, and then Sarah Palin, no girly-man she, flew over and shot me from her not-funded-by-the-state-of-Alaska private hunting plane. Ouch!

      ps. What are the facts, exactly?

      Well fitting for the date.
      What was it again? If you put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig ... ?
      True that.

    7. Dill Pixels (THE ORIGINAL) 80 months ago | reply

      Yep. Also, this quote seems to me fitting for 9/11 and Dick Cheney's approach to governance:

      "Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

      That was Benjamin Franklin in 1775.

      Wow!, Dill, you have quite a steamboat going here. Interesting poster though. I also like the Franklin quote.

      By the way to any interested, the lipstick/pig reference that was made by Obama, he started using that reference back, I believe, in May. Long before Palin was in the picture. It has and is in reference to McCain's policy plan, not to Palin.

      Personally, I was more "put off" about the Pitbull/Hockey Mom/Lipstick comment by Palin, which quite honestly, was more sexist in reference. I'm a Hockey mom without lipstick, myself. However, she can own whatever she wants. Lipstick/pig/pitbull/hockey mom. Free choice. : )))

      Dick Cheney claims he is not part of the executive branch, and that means he doesn't have to share his records.

      Hahahaha! Dill, Thanks for the link. Amazing how many couldn't come up with the simple word of choice. Must be extinct from the vocabulary. I better check Webster. : ))

    12. Dill Pixels (THE ORIGINAL) 80 months ago | reply

      @Salome: "Choice" has been removed from the Good Conservative's Dictionary, as has "gay" -- with unforeseen results.

      Ha! "...hit the hay hoping Kevin Love would open things up for Rudy Homosexual in the front court," (as it were). And they say the right wing isn't supportive of homosexuality!

      Yeah, stuck in a moment to be sure

      Brad, maybe Bush and Cheney should split it up now: OK George, I'll keep an eye on those evil-doers and you go check on the banks, maybe throw some cash at them or sumpthin...Huh?...I guess a trillion oughtta do it. Thanks, Georgie!

      If Gore had ever shot an old guy in the face and also GFU'd Jesse Helms in congress, he'd have been lynched.

      A trillion for the banks? Sweet dreams Katrencik! It will be a goodbye gift 4 the ones you elected twice...

    16. katrencikphoto 67 months ago | reply

      Wasn't me who elected em twice! Good riddance, Dick!

    17. Dill Pixels (THE ORIGINAL) 67 months ago | reply

      I'm not actually sure he's really gone...

      Jacksonville Photographer seemes to be biased to his opinion that everyone who doesn't like Dick Cheney is a Liberal idiot. I'm the proof that his opinion is just that and nothing more. Dick Cheney is an embarrassment to the Republican party and to the United States of America. That, of course, is my opinion but I think many people out there would agree with me.
