Hi Yo, You are correct sir!
Jewelry? Land? Half of everything uncontested in the divorce?
@ Dan, I still think your post of late have been too shrill but I take back my Bitter Betty and Cindy McCain might hep comment.
Doesn't make it right that she flip-flopped, but we all know how hate mongering conservatives rock-n-roll.
I'm sorry you feel that way about straight allies. We didn't actually choose to be straight, you know.
Repeat: 1% of the people in the U.S. control 50% of the wealth in this country.
My question is how long are this nation's gullible voters going to continue to bury their heads in the sand, allowing oligarchs and plutocrats to rub their noses in the fact that they are utterly, completely powerless?
Elections used to offer something of a remedy for plutocracy and oligarchy -- not any more.
Elections in this country were turned into Silent Auctions when the U.S. supreme court declared that corporations are people, and are entitled to the same free-speech protections as human beings.
If this is so, under the equal protections clause of the U.S. constitution, we should be able to drag corporations into court and find them guilty of murder, rape, wanton destruction and a laundry list of other offenses. "... nor deny to any 'person' within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." (my single quotes: 'person')
So let's get the ball rolling. BP goes to jail for 50 years. Halliburton ditto. Every other corporation, and its officers, goes to jail for decades. Companies that connived on worthless CDOs are put to death by hanging, as are all banks (just because they're banks).
While corporations are in "jail," their assets and all revenue they generate goes into IRS and Federal Reserve coffers. Upon their release, they will be subject to donating public service in perpetuity.
If you're a right winger determined to flame me, don't clutter up valuable real estate with your bollocks. With a modicum of research you'll find me. Be sure to read the Privacy Agreement -- it means what it says!
Does anyone have a vaccine? Yes! I do! It's a three-pronged defense and prevention protocol:
(1) Education, education, education! Ignorant people fear what they don't know, and knowledgeable people are empowered to move beyond their selfish preoccupations.
(2) "You-nification" -- not "I-solationism" -- leads people out of the darkness of narcissism and zero-sum greed.
(3) The Future: a vision of how we can improve the world by working together, not working against each other.
If these don't work, there's always amputation. If we keep getting "GOP-ectomies" instead of finding a cure for the infection of destructive, slash-and-burn conservatism, we may end up with... surprise! a great place to live! One can only hope.
Write your own epitaph, conservatives. You still have a few years to get it "right." Ha, ha!
I say, "Well, enough about me! Let's talk about YOU now!"
Who am I?
Cindy McCain? Sarah Palin? Lucrezia Borgia? The Red Queen?
All of the above.
But even I'm impressed. Not at the reversal per se, but to do so *in one day*?
Huh. Cut in some other actor/personality for her bits & rerelease it, and then use her parts to create a new video. It could be interspersed with clips of her husband furiously ranting about something or other (I'm sure there's plenty of examples online to use especially if there's any CPAN footage of his anti-DADT stuff in the senate available) and then find some suitably bitchy music or dubbing or even just subtitle to showcase her flip flop...
@9 I swear, neanderthals like you whose solution to every woman they don't like is that she needs a good fucking which will then turn her into some kind of nice obedient robot -- my conclusion is people like you say that kind of shit cause you're not getting any. Cause that's sure not what happens in reality, so you must not be familiar with it.
Personally, I think it's funny that Aravosis is wringing his hands about "the message it sends to gay youth", because he's assuming that the gay youth of America all follow Cindy McCain on Twitter.
But seriously, why take her out of the video? If the kids are going to see anything, it will probably be the video, not some boring interview on Fox - unless they're stuck at Grandpaw's or something.
It is clearly not the "different" kids that are the source of the problem here...! :-/
Besides it will annoy the conservatives, including her husband, much more than it will everyone else. With the exception of the perpetually outraged Pomerainians at Americablog, but they always clutching their pearls about something over there.
And I like Canuck's suggestion, too.
Personally, my guess is that her husband beat her up.
It's debatable whether John and Cindy are even in love (see the cunt fiasco), but they want to keep the facade going for political/convenience reasons. It's going to be impossible for a divorcee to be the POTUS, that's for sure.
Your first mistake is assuming her husband can think.
who gives a dang how elegant the first lady is? what, you want some royalty in our democracy?
the looks of the first spouse should be irrelevant. to everything.
Both her and this ridiculous situation.
I travel outside the country most of the year, and it's embarrassing. We're supposed to be this beacon of freedom and we're actually moving backwards in some ways on this issue.
as for myself, i wouldn't touch her with a 10 foot pole. not my type at all *shudder*
Write your own epitaph, conservatives. You still have a few years to get it "right." Ha, ha! "
Hate is always in vogue, as long as they control the Media.
Raindrop is a fascist who loathes uppity women. Pay no mind.
Okay, but I don;t understand how turning her vegan will help.
