“You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose”
“LOL...did his mommy call your mommy?”
“It's the mob mentality. Besides, the tilt/marko v. stovie/XL tag team events are a welcome relief when you step out of the Lime Green Jello Pool.”
“Poor little innocent t*ltypoo.”
“count down to the table turning...”
“Table turning? But if Tilty/Marko vs Stovie/XL with everyone watching turns....then does that mean the four of us against all of you?
This will be fun...(LOL)”
“The version I heard was: "You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you can't wipe your friends on your saddle."”
“bring it XL..I am on vaction starting @ 5;00 EST...I am ready!!!!!”
“Actually I would hate this place without Tilt and Marko....I am betting we could get a good ass argument about NOTHING at all.
OFcourse those twitty liberals don't really recognize that Nothing is actually something....

“You can prick you finger but dooooooon't finger your prick......”
“"....he wanted to change the Constitution without any consent."
I wanted to make it with Haley Mills when I was a kid.................without her consent.
There is a difference between wanting to do something and actually doing it.”
“no XL, i was throwing out bait to see who believed that hogwash. Thanks for scaring away the fish.”
“LOL at MarkO. Our former secretary talked about working at this fab shop. First day on the job a guy asks her if she fools around. She says no. He replies, "Will you stand still while I do?"”
“Marko just proved that he hasn't a clue what happened in Honduras. The fact is he was trying to do it. The constitution allows for a referendum for change but it has to be started in the congress. Zelaya was told that, but he had his friend Chavez print up the ballots in Valenzuela and ship them to him for a ballot he was pushing unconstitutionally. the vote was supposed to happen the day he was ousted (or the next, not sure about that exactly). Their supreme court said it was unconstitutional and the congress voted to remove him and voted for an interim president to hold the position until the presidential elections in 7 months.”
“Yeah sure, they claim it wasn't a military coup.
Maybe it was a compassionate coup.
It will be interesting to see how this all shakes out.
Dang, you guys have dragged this way off topic.”
“so you admit he was trying to change the constitution and not just wanting too?”
“OBAMA MORE THAN 'CONCERNED'
June 30, 2009
North Korea launches a missile and it takes Barack Obama and the UN five days to respond. Iran holds fraudulent elections, kills protesters and it takes weeks before Barack Obama can stand up and say that he is "concerned" about the situation.
Then the people of Honduras try to uphold their constitution and laws of the land from being trampled by a Chavez-wanna be ... and it takes Barack Obama one day to proclaim that this was not a legal coup.
Why the sudden decisiveness? Where were these strong opinions on foreign matters when Iranian authorities were trampling protestors and cutting off media access to the outside world? Where was this decisiveness when Kim Jong Ill decided that he was going to launch missiles toward Hawaii on the Fourth of July? Why ... NOW ... is Obama suddenly speaking out loudly
How about a little background. Are you really sure you know what has been going on in Honduras? Do you think that this was simply a coup? Let me give you a rough outline here, and then you can sit back and wonder just why PrezBO is in the weeds with Chavez and Castro on this one.
Mel Zelaya is, or was, the President of Honduras. He and Hugo Chaves were tight. So tight, it seems, that Zelaya wanted to emulate Hugo by changing the Honduran constitution to allow him to run for office until he durned well gets tired of it.
To change the constitution in Honduras you have to convene a constituent assembly. The president cannot do that. The Honduran congress must approve a national referendum calling for the constituent assembly to consider changes to the constitution. Zelaya didn't like the part about the constitution requiring approval of the congress before a national referendum could be called. So ... he decided to call one on his own.
OK .. so here we have President Zelaya calling for a national referendum when he doesn't have the power to do so. The next problem is obtaining ballots! Since the Honduran congress had not called for the referendum, as required by the constitution, the government certainly wasn't going to print the ballots! After all, how smart would it be to print ballots for an illegal referendum? So ... Zelaya had to get the ballots printed elsewhere. Here's an idea! Get his pall Hugo Chavez to print them! Yes! That will work!
So Chaves prints Zelaya's ballots and they're shipped to Honduras. Enter the Honduran Supreme Court. The court considers Zelaya's election in light of the requirements of the Honduran constitution, and rules the referendum illegal and unconstitutional. The court then issues an order to the Honduran military telling them not to do the logistical work associated with Zelaya's phony referendum. Remember, now ... all of this has one primary goal. To get rid of the term limits limiting Zelaya's rule in Honduras.
After the supreme court's decision, General Romeo Velasquez tells President Zelaya that he is subject to a proper order from the Supreme Court and will not be able to carry out Zelaya's referendum. So ... Zelaya fires him. The Supreme Court orders Zelaya to reinstate Velasquez, and Zelaya refuses to do so.
At this point Zelaya's ego is getting the better of him. If the military won't run his illegal referendum, he'll just do it himself. He gins up a mob and leads them to the military compound where Hugo's ballots are stored and then has his supporters begin distributing the ballots to the masses.
Based on the Supreme Court's ruling the Honduran attorney general said that the proposed referendum was illegal and said that he would arrest anyone attempting to carry out the election. Zelaya was arrested by the military and was escorted out of the country.
Now ... does this sound like a military coup-de-etat to you? The attorney general and the military were operating in accordance with the Honduran rule of law. They acted under a valid court order. Coup? The Honduran congress has convened and designated a successor president, all in accordance with the Honduran Constitution. Military coup? The presidential elections set for November .. the election that Zelaya was trying to get around ... will go on as scheduled. A blow for democracy?
Fidel Castro, Daniel Noriega, Hugo Chavez ... all on the side of Zelaya. But Obama? Obama fighting against the rule of law and for a wannabe dictator? What gives?”
“how many terms has Chavez served now?”
“but what about Tilt? Huh? We aren't gonna let this get away from the topic at hand are we?”
“so you admit he was trying to change the constitution and blah, blah, blah
Why, how very Sarge-ish of you.”
“please pick more on the stovepipe.. xl at least makes an argument here and there..”
“cute kleetn. Once you pull the "how very sarge-ish" argument, you know you have nothing else to offer. So I will take it as a compliment that that was the best counter point you could come up with.”
“You're all a bunch of douche whistles...”
“OOOOh,, the Houndurans are coming.....run, get your guns and meet me in the bar.
Life as we know it is about to end.”
“What kind of bushes are these on which commies bloom out the top rather than the underside?”
“I'm sure t*ltypoo and Geobeet are right on top of this....LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
Investigation into a massive Democratic fraud ring in Pennsylvania's legislature heats up as more than 100 subpoenas flutter through the air like a ticker-tape parade
HARRISBURG — State lawmakers and legislative staffers on Thursday were subpoenaed by former House Democratic Whip Mike Veon and other defendants in a legislative corruption scandal, an attorney involved in the case said.
At least 39 subpoenas were served at the Capitol offices of lawmakers of both parties. Some said as many as 100 were served. Those served are required to appear at a hearing next week on the defendants' pretrial motions.
Receiving a subpoena from defense lawyers does not mean the recipient is suspected of wrongdoing by authorities.
"It's our understanding that over 100 members and staff received subpoenas," said Brett Marcy, a spokesman for House Democrats. "It is also our understanding that both Democrats and Republicans were served."...................more..........
