History will judge Bill Clinton to be the best president since Abraham Lincoln.

History will judge W. (King George) to be the worst president in the history of the United States.

Tim, I guess that would depend on who wrote the history books that one reads. I've read several comments by American writers that heap praise on Fidel Castro. They look upon Fidel as a benevolent, grandfatherly sort who has benefitted his people as no other. This opinion is not shared by many in the Miami "Little Havana" district. Most there see him as a murderous tyrant, one whose policies led to the imprisonment, torture , and murder of many of their friends and loved ones. It all depends on whom you choose to believe.

Lincoln's the worst thing that ever happened to this country. Unlike George W. Bush, who is a mass murderer of primarily foreigners, Lincoln's choice of genocide was his very own fellow American.

Republicans have always been communists and always will be communists. They've been hiding their program behind "capitalism" for over a century.

I have heard it said that if you live long enough you see and probably hear everything. Booger, I have been on this earth for seventy-six years and I have never heard that theory in my life until today. I am sure you have some long explanation for that theory but this is a golf blog so there is not the space for it.

Alex, those Cubans in Miami were part of the corrupt Baptista regime. ANd while they deserve some compensation, don't hold them up as shining exsamples of martyrdom.

Tim, When you say the Miami Cubans deserve some compensation, who do you think should pay them compensation and for what? Their property was confiscated close to a half century ago. The thousands of political prisoners were tortured and murdered decades ago. There were only a small number of Cuban exiles who were part of the Batista regime. Most of them have long since departed this earth. Like any political dictatorship, Fulgencio Bastista and his junta didn't need many people in their cabal to enforce discipline. Just a strong secret police. Sort of like Fidel Castro's gang. Tim, just to be safe, my advice to you is don't ever express that opinion of Cuban exiles on Calle Ocho in Miami.

Chris, It looks like you really started something with this blog mentioning Clinton. In a short space, we have Bill Clinton being judged by history as the greatest president since Lincoln, to Abe being the worst mass murderer of his own people in history, to GW Bush being the absolute worst president in US history, to the Cuban exiles in Miami all being members of the Batista regime. That's quite a duke's mixture. Tim is obviously of a liberal persuasion, which is fine, but I am puzzled that he would rank Bill over liberal icons FDR, Woodrow Wilson, LBJ, and Jimma Carter. I'd like to hear his reasons for that opinion. Tim, I assume that you are opposed to the death penalty, so why do you think that Castro's political enemies deserved summary execution? But Booger's assessment that all Republicans are communists takes first prize. Can all these people be serious?

Alex, my friend, let's be sure to emphasize the main point. The Timmies of the world reserve their contempt not for the wicked, but for those who reside on the "wrong side" of the political spectrum, be they good or evil. Stalin killed many millions more than Hitler, but he still can't be placed in the same infernal category. Why, perish the thought. Augusto Pinochet was a choir boy as compared to ol' Fidel, but woe betide the hapless sap would would not condemn the former and whitewash the latter.

You see, emotion reigns supreme with liberals, and their feelings tell them: left-wing tyrant, good -- right-wing tyrant, bad. And that's that.

Could you imagine how apoplectic Timmie would be about the president if he were guilty of Clintonesque shenanigans?

Alex, I'm an Independent, politically, though I'll admit to loathing King George and the Republicans, while merely feeling sorry for the Democrats.

I mean, look at Judge Smails. What further example do you need, in terms of loathing?
2006-08-23 @ 06:18
Comment from: Alex [Visitor]
Tim, Did I read your post correctly? Do you really admit to "loathing", despising, hating, the majority of the people in this nation? Tim, I am a registered Republican. I served honorably in the Armed Forces. I work and pay taxes. I give to church and charities. I raised my kids to be law-abiding and to respect their elders. I treat my wife with love and respect. I get along well with my neighbors. I'm a pretty decent fellow. But you LOATHE me because I'm a Republican? Tim, I just can't believe you can have that feeling about people you don't even know.

Ah, Timmie is an "Independent," surprise, surprise. I guess that's how perspiring urinalists register when they want to effect an air of impartiality. Independent of truth and common sense, maybe.

Thinkers Anonymous
>
> It started out innocently enough. I began to think at parties now and then - just to loosen up. Inevitably, though, one thought led to another, and soon I was more than just a social thinker. I began to think alone - to relax, I told myself - but I knew it wasn't true. Thinking became more and more important to me, and finally I was thinking all the time. That was when things started to sour at home.

One evening I turned off the TV and asked my wife about the meaning of
life. She spent that night at her mother's. I began to think on the job. I knew that thinking and employment don't mix, but I couldn't help myself. I began to avoid friends at lunchtime so I could read Thoreau, Muir, Confucius, and Kafka. I would return to the office dizzied and confused, asking, "What is it exactly we are doing here?"

One day the boss called me in. He said, "Listen, I like you and it hurts
me to say this, but your thinking has become a real problem. If you don't stop thinking on the job, you'll have to find another job." This gave me a
lot to think about.

I came home early after my conversation with the boss. "Honey," I
confessed, "I've been thinking....."

"I know you've been thinking," she said, "and I want a divorce!"

"But, Honey, surely it's not that serious."

"It is serious," she said, lower lip aquiver. "You think as much as college professors and college professors don't make any money, so if you keep on thinking, we won't have any money!"

"That's a faulty syllogism," I said impatiently.

She exploded in tears of rage and frustration, but I was in no mood to
deal with the emotional drama. "I'm going to the library," I snarled as I
stomped out the door.

I headed for the library, in the mood for some Nietzsche. I roared into the parking lot with NPR on the radio and ran up to the big glass doors.

They didn't open; the library was closed. To this day, I believe that a
higher power was looking out for me that night. Leaning on the unfeeling
glass, whimpering for Zarathustra, a poster caught my eye: FRIEND, IS
HEAVY THINKING RUINING YOUR LIFE?

You probably recognize that line. It comes from the standard Thinkers
Anonymous poster. That is why I am what I am today: a recovering thinker.
I never miss a TA meeting. At each meeting we watch a non-educational
video. Then we share experiences about how we avoided thinking since the last meeting.

I still have my job, and things are a lot better at home. Life just seems.....well, easier, somehow, as soon as I stopped thinking. I think
the road to recovery is nearly complete for me.

Today I took the final step: I joined the Republican Party.

Tim, That's all very nice, but as is the case with nearly all dyed-in-the-wool liberals, you seem incapable of answering questions about your leftist views. Is your blind hatred of all Republicans the result of profound thought? Your post reads more like the rantings of some dimwit at the Daily Kos. Tim is an independent. Sure he is. And I'm a Peruvian astronaut.

I hear the resturants are good in Lima.

Yes, my hatred of Republicans is the result of profound thought, which led me to the inevitable conclusion that they're ruining the country, and trying to take the rest of the world down with them.

Those are just two reasons.

Tim, Interesting. And how long has this GOP ruination of the country been going on? How long will it take, according to independent people like yourself,for the ruination to be complete? Did the eight years of the Clinton regime share in this ruination? What would be the motivation for these nefarious Republicans to not only reduce this great nation to rubble, but to lay waste the rest of the world as well? What would they be able to plunder if there were nothing but ruins remaining? Inquiring minds want to know.

Tim, It's really too bad that you have such an opinion of about 75% of the greatest military force ever assembled. (All volunteer) The rest of your post is really a rather weak attempt at satire. I hope.
2006-08-23 @ 20:13
Comment from: Tim McDonald [Member] Email
No, it's not satire, weak or strong. It's what I believe and it's the truth.

I don't know where the hell you're getting that 75 percent thing.

We need to get King George and his ilk out of there. The greatest military force ever assembled deserves better treatment and real leaders, not these pansies.

Tim, GWB will be out of office at noon on 20Jan2009 and not a minute sooner. I know it and you know it. And since the liberal movement doesn't believe it needs any conversions to it credo by the fact that characters like you can't heap enough insults on the reviled Republicans, it is safe to assume that someone with similar political leanings as George W. Bush will succeed him. My immediate family has eleven people who will be voting in 2008, and 2006 as well. Since your opinion of us is that we are nothing more than pigshit, the libs won't be getting our votes any time soon. As a bit of irony, Tim, you posted all these scurrilous insults about the Republicans AFTER you said they, the GOP, were narrow-minded and vicious. Talk about stereotyping! Your method of proselytizing will get precious few converts.

Tim, The major news services all estimated that the military vote in 2004 was about 75% for the winner, George W. Bush.

Comment from: Booger [Visitor]
Republicanism is communism. George W. Bush is an international communist revolutionary. He has done more to change American from an outpost of Europe to a third world banana republic than any president before him.

Does the Republican Party actually have to change its name to the People's Party Of America, Marxist-Leninist for you to GET IT, ALEX?!?!?
2006-08-23 @ 22:43
Comment from: Alex [Visitor]
Booger, You'll have to bear with me on this one. You see, it's all very confusing for the uninitiated. On one hand, Tim McDonald says that all Republicans are vermin, scum of the earth lackeys of the robber barons and the money lenders. By extension, that would make guys like me either willing or simple-minded dupes of these slavemasters since I voted to put them in power. Now you come along with a diametrically opposed theory of which you are positive. The Republicans should actually be known as the Marxist-Leninist People's Party, since the hierarchy of the party are all international communist revolutionaries of which George W. Bush is the number one conspirator. Please don't castigate me alone for not GETTING IT, Booger. I think I have a lot of company. But you fellows on either side of the issue have convinced me. I will definitely not vote for George W. Bush for President in November of 2008. I will try to convince the rest of my family to similarly refrain from voting for Dubya again.

Comment from: Judge Smails [Visitor]
What a laugh. It's ironic that Tiny Brain Tim would characterize Republicans as individuals who fail to think -- it's the pot calling the kettle black. Liberals (and Timmie is no exception) are devoid of logic and reason, as they have disengaged their intellects. And it's no surprise. Liberalism isn't an intellect based ideology but an emotion based one.

Lastly, it's funny, Timmie, that you asserted that your musings were the truth. Do you believe in absolute truth, Timmie? Or, were you just reacting emotionally, as liberals are wont to do, and labeling your assessment loosely?

Oh, one more thing. You've been characterizing the objects of your displeasure as wussies. Yet, I can tell just by looking at you that you're the biggest wuss in the world. It's obvious.

RL, Now I'm really convinced to convert to liberalism. Now that you have referred to us conservatives as cretins, and added some other insults, I just can't wait to cast my votes in the future for any liberal Democrat. You fellows are so reasonable and tolerant and you're not at all condescending. If you just keep on telling all those stupid Republicans how clueless they are, I'm sure they will all jump on the liberal bandwagon.

Tim, I have a question for you. When do you think a liberal who admits he's a liberal will win an election in the US? Outside of the SF bay area, Manhattan, and the big college towns, that is. Yes, you libs are a real bunch of mean asses. What did you do? Hit him with your purse? Nobody is as receptive to propaganda as is a liberal. Radical liberalism is a religion to its fanatical followers. All one has to do is witness a gathering of these freaks with painted faces as they chant slogans and bang on drums, pots, and pans.

Tim, the only kook liberal article of faith that you haven't embraced on these blogs thus far is the "Republicans stole all the elections since 2000." Come on, Tim, Judge Smails and I could use a few laughs. Tell us how Kathleen Harris, Ken Blackwell, Diebold, and about 10,000 election board workers stole the elections and left no evidence. Tell us how Al Gore and/or John Kerry should really be President.

Alex,

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the crowd that preaches tolerance and non-judgementalism? I mean, I thought that judging others and being intolerant of their beliefs and ways were the two new deadly sins.

Also, Alex, I must warn you of the mortal danger in which you're placing yourself. You're working Timmie up into a state of dithery anger, and, well, we know how he just oozes testosterone. The man has the exterior of a Sonny Liston and the soul of a Spartan warrior. Why, have you seen his picture? You wouldn't want this imposing man after you; you'd have to grow a pair of eyes on the back of your head.

Lastly, maybe these neo-communists are right about Limbaugh. He must be stupid if his spelling and grammar are that poor.

Tim, When you can supply answers as to why you believe that the US is going to hell in a handbasket solely because of GWB and his administration, maybe you will be taken more seriously. Dubya, Dick Cheney, Condi, and Lord Rove are going to be with us and active for a little more than two years. Get udes to it. Since you're not happy with their politics, maybe you and others like you should try to convince some Republicans to switch allegiance. Insulting those people will win you nada. But I think you know this already. You probably just like to vent and act out your supposed intellectual superiority and elitism.

Gee, we've ranged pretty far afield from Chris' original post about making a holiday of Slick's birthday! As one of those folks who actually WORKS for a living (as opposed to 'blogging') I'd LOVE to see an additional national holiday...we could call it "Cigar Appreciation Day" or "Spotty Blue Dress Day" so everyone could remember Slick's FINE contributions to the dignity of the office of the President...talk about "making America a laughing-stock on the world stage"! ;)
