Open Thread Monday

8 03 2010

You know the drill. Anything you wanna talk about on this bright and very sunny Monday is open for debate.

Here’s a thread starter. Last week a coalition of some 300 people went to visit their congressional leaders in Washington. They were there to push the pols into acting on some new immigration legislation. Or what we might call… “giving away our country”. Anyway, do you think the politicians in D.C. have the guts to take on an issue like this in an important election year?

Obama MUST pass immigration reform so ALL illegals can vote for the fool. That is a must in his grand scheme of things. Lindsey graham needs to be thrown out on his butt ASAP!!!

Gio–Thanks, we had a great weekend doing not much of anything for a change. Been listening to sirius radio while out this AM, and hear serious charges being made by Rep Massa about his forced resignation because of his “NO” vote for Obamacare. He is making serious charges against this administratiion esp. Hoyer and Rambo Emmanuel. I do not believe it will make any difference, but Congress should do something about the fools running things. They are very dangerous!! I wish his charges would blow this thing wide open.

I have gotten several emails containing this unattributed quote from people who ran across it on the Internet.

I don’t know who said it, but I sure as hell agree with it:

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The public can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

-End

I have been wondering for years, and for all kinds of reasons, if America has become collectively too ‘stoopid’ to survive much longer in the form it was founded.

I have this innate fear I received my answer on the morning of November 05, 2008.

Well,
Whichever way the chips fal on healthcare..immigration and cap and trade are next in the chute. I FULLY expect a “One time only” amnesty bill, roundly supported by Graham and McC’lame all in the name of some bipartisian roll over for the dems. Amnesty is nothing more than a bid for a permanent expansion of an already growing entitlement driven government dependant voting block in an effort to seal the Dems in power forever.

Gio,
Please help! I don’t understand this at all! We don’t use school buses on weekends, holidays or in the summer. Load them up and drive to the border. You have 30 seconds to go back or I start shooting. Is that “PC” enough? The only thing the pols are going to do is continue the tax and spend bs! Look at every bill and they are crammed with pork barrel spending. VOTE THEM ALL OUT!!

To the regular readers of Giovanni’s World:

No doubt you are worried about Gio, as I am. But there’s nothing we can do except to wait for him to return to his blog — and pray for his wellbeing.

In the meantime, you may want to visit the FellowshipOfMinds blog to stay informed, at least until Gio returns:

http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/

Many regulars of Gio’s World already know about Fellowship and are there.

God bless.

Eowyn–I also am worried about Gio. I emailed him yesterday, but have gotten no response. Do hope that he is OK.

Doc’s Wife & Tom,

Since we don’t have any way to contact him other than e-mail and this blog, that is all we can do — wait and pray. 😦

Eowyn,
I tried to e-mail him about a week ago, have not heard from him, I hope it’s just computer issues and not anything else. All we can do is pray for him.

I truly hope he’s ok and this isn’t one of his disappearing acts. Gio! Show yourself!

I know I very often go for a while between postings for reasons like my job, overwhelmed by this ugly world, my job, overwhelmed by this ugly world, and my job.

I look forward to having him back.

Love, Granny

Gio has disappeared before for what seems like a long time, and this does seem longer than usual to me….. Gio I do hope you have not been arrested by our brown shirts over your blog…. Maybe he went to the White House to protest the obama bill getting passed? or maybe he has the flu? or he could just be taking a break from all the depressing news that we keep hearing in the news…..

Velenda,

The longest he’s gone missing before was 4 days. This time, it’s 2 weeks and 1 day.

What we do know is that on March 12, four days after Gio’s last post (this one on March 8), he commented on a NewsBusters article on Geraldo. We know it’s him because some of us know what handle/alias he uses on NewsBusters.

Gio,

And if you can’t get to a computer, ask your granddaughter to drop off a comment here. She doesn’t need to have access to Gio’s World’s administrative functions to post a comment.

It is cruel to leave dangling so many of your faithful readers who have come to regard you as their friend.

Gio

You’ve been gone for a month and you’re still getting more hits than I am! Maybe I should try it. Nah, I’m too irritated at the administration to keep my claptrap shut. And that’s what worries me. You always have stuff to say. Where in the world are you?

Love

Granny

Hey mc,
What is your problem? Why make fun of the mentally challenged what have they ever done to you???? Why so angry, did your mom not love you enough? Drop you on your head??? Piss in your cheerios and call it milk??? We are not fags we all are married…. We are not racists we just do not like what your president is doing to this country… It is not the color of his skin that we do not like it is his agenda and social behaviors we have a problem with… When you can learn to have an actual conversation come back and be an adult or has your brain not developed past that of a 3 year olds????
Was your welfare check and food stamps late this month??? Are you hungry and need a hand or just a piece of SHIT????????

No, I think he just needs a 12 gauge enema to clear his mind.

mc,

Sounds to me like you are a SCARED WHITE RACIST UNEDUCATED RETARD FAGGOT who once asked JESUS for help and you didn’t get it so you are contemplating SUICIDE.

WELL I SAY IF THE SHOE FITS WEAR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You appear to have been “educated” in government schools by Postal Service rejects.

My guess is that you are a member of the mooch, leech, and tick class, and cannot wipe your ass without government assistance.

I would normally tell you to go f*ck yourself, you stinking, freedom and America-hating commie puke, although I suspect you are anatomically ill-equipped to do so, as I am guessing you are a 13yo pud-knocker taking up space in your mommie’s basement.

The MC clown is probably Rham…drooling while spewing out the talking points for the SRM!

I just looked up pictures of James O’Keefe using google and your post, ‘Help Hannah Giles Defense,’ was the first result to come up. I’m sure that you know that the Acorn controversy was fabricated through editing and got people who either a) reported them to the police for pretending to start a prostitution ring or b) told a woman to keep trying to find herself housing fired (because they purported that these comments were in reaction to things which were never said.) I just wanted to let you know that if you to keep your blog as being ‘fair and balanced’ and ‘truth always,’ you may want to edit that post. I hate when terrible people ruin the conservative cause – it sets us back so far. Now the liberal whackos are going to think we’re all lying or willing to eat up fabricated stories. And it wasn’t even our fault!

God Bless.

Still no Gio, what the hell where has he gone to? Has he been beamed up to the alien mother ship???? Beginning to really get worried now… Has he blown this blog off and started a new one??? Does he not have family members that could fill us in on what is going on??? Or can he not just pop in and say all is well on the Gio front???

I’ve been checking out Gio’s blog for a little over a year now and hate to think what could have happened to him. With his reader base and committment to sharing the news, I’m surprised to see that he’s just vanished.

Is there no one out there who can tell us where he is?

24 04 2010
Eowyn

“Is there no one out there who can tell us where he is?”

Answer: Evidently not. Gio made sure of that by never giving his phone #, address, or real name to anyone, including his “west coast editor” and regulars such as yourself who consider him their friend.

Ok Gio,
Game over you have us ALL worried about you so show yourself…….. or at least post something to say you are well and alive…….. We miss this blog and the information we get from it…….

25 04 2010
Eowyn

Gio,

Your blog is drifting like an abandoned spaceship in cyberspace, being buffeted by trolls and spam. If you’re still alive, please just end this. By abandoning your blog to drift, you’re providing a public forum for the opposition.
