That comment was totally uncalled for. Whether you agree or disagree with a person's politics, it does not give you the right to insult them or otherwise assassinate their character. I seem to be seeing much more of this type of comment being rendered here and am growing very weary of reading them. So I think I'll just boycott this site for a while and see if people mature in their perspective and commentary. Bye.

Well said, Steve. Perhaps people can try to temper their sarcasm a bit on this forum as it doesn't contribute to the issues. That is why we separated the TRR threads, we understand those topics generate those type responses. We really don't need too see them in the rest of the forum though.

I read in the SunJournal today that Palin would be making a pit stop in Bangor. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in attending an Anti Palin Rally on that day and time. We have had 3 or 4 in Alaska so far and they had the largest attendance of any protest/rally since statehood. If you would like to check out a large number of Alaskans feelings on her go to these links....

This last one is a currest development today on Troopergate. I can say from knowing Walt hes a stand up guy, straight forward, and very fair.....his name being rubbed in the mud was wrong and I am glad to see hes not backing down.

Shhhh.. Don't tell anyone that John McCain has ties to ACORN, and has glorified the work of ACORN in the past (don't be surprised if Obama mentions this tonight).

ACORN is not a subversive/manipulative organization. It is an organization that attempts to encourage people to participate in the political process through voting. McCain's campaign is using ACORN as ascapegoat and excuse to manipulate election law to disqualify hundreds of thousands of voters who are likely to vote for his opponent (ask the people in Ohio). He is desperate, and it shows.

Palin visited Maine recently in a quick visit at the airport. She couldn't bother herself to even come to town. The gathering was planned in a small hangar, but had to be moved to a larger hangar because of the enormous croud that was expected (apparently, they hadn't expected many to show up). They came from all across Maine, and developed into a group of about 6,000 (just about the population of Rumford). If this lack-lustre showing was more than they had expected, it shows that they realize they have little support in Maine and are just going through the process. I always thought there were more than 6,000 republicans in Maine, but then again it is possible that many republicans are not supporting the ticket.

That's my opinion, I welcome yours

No

I find almost everything Sarah Palin says condescending and offensive. At times, it's juvenile.

I agree. Insults are inappropriate.

This was sent to me by a friend. I don't know the source, but I think it's worth sharing.

How Racism Works:

What if John McCain were a former president of the Harvard Law Review?
What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating
class?

What if McCain were still married to the first woman he said 'I do' to?
What if Obama were the candidate who left his first wife after she no
longer measured up to his standards?

What if Michelle Obama were a wife who not only became addicted to pain
killers, but acquired them illegally through her charitable
organization? What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

What if Obama were a member of the Keating-5? What if McCain were a
charismatic, eloquent speaker?

If these questions reflected reality, do you really believe the
election numbers would be as close as they are?

This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes
positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities
in another when there is a color difference.

You are The Boss... which team would you hire?

With America facing historic debt, 2 wars, stumbling health care, a
weakened dollar, all-time high prison population, mortgage crises, bank
foreclosures, etc.

Educational Background:

Obama:
Columbia University - B.A. Political Science with a Specialization in
International Relations.
Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude

Biden:
University of Delaware - B.A. in History and B.A. in Political Science.
Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)

vs.

McCain: United States Naval Academy - Class rank: 894 of 899

Palin: Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester
North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study
University of Idaho - 2 semesters - journalism
Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester
University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in Journalism

Now, which team are you going to hire ?

PS: What if Barack Obama had an unwed, pregnant teenage daughter?

McCain and Palin are reviving the 1950s practice of accusing people of being anti-american.

wiki wrote:
McCarthyism is a term describing the intense anti-communist suspicion in the United States in a period that lasted roughly from the late 1940s to the late 1950s. This period is also referred to as the Second Red Scare, and coincided with increased fears about communist influence on American institutions and espionage by Soviet agents. Originally coined to criticize the actions of U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy, "McCarthyism" later took on a more general meaning, not necessarily referring to the conduct of Joseph McCarthy alone.
During this time many thousands of Americans were accused of being Communists or communist sympathizers and became the subject of aggressive investigations and questioning before government or private-industry panels, committees and agencies. The primary targets of such suspicions were government employees, those in the entertainment industry, educators and union activists. Suspicions were often given credence despite inconclusive or questionable evidence, and the level of threat posed by a person's real or supposed leftist associations or beliefs was often greatly exaggerated. Many people suffered loss of employment, destruction of their careers, and even imprisonment. Most of these punishments came about through trial verdicts later overturned,[1] laws that would be declared unconstitutional,[2] dismissals for reasons later declared illegal[3] or actionable,[4] or extra-legal procedures that would come into general disrepute.
The most famous examples of McCarthyism include the Hollywood blacklist and the investigations and hearings conducted by Joseph McCarthy. It was a widespread social and cultural phenomenon that affected all levels of society and was the source of a great deal of debate and conflict in the United States.

Yet another issue on which I disagree with the SJ. Please remember that the RFT is owned by them, so it won't be a surprise if they too support McCain.

The "far right" is always accusing the SJ of being a "liberal rag". Will they change their "tune"?

It really makes me wonder when all the junk mail I get from the republican party doesn't in any way promote their own candidate. Every piece I get is telling my why I shouldn't vote for Obama- some of it quite ridiculous. Why aren't they using this media to promote their own candidates? Is there nothing to promote?
