Gringoman,

My question is "why is he[Bernard] always bringing up gay issues?"


Posted by: M/M | October 01, 2010 at 08:36 PM

M/M,

In my opinion the odds are against losing Bernard to the boys in the bathhouse. If you're still paying the kind of attention you once did, you'll notice that El Bernardo is always remarking, directly or indirectly, on the "the chicks." That could raise more questions about his marriage than about his orientation.

As the right hand man of cowboy homophiliac Don Imus, Bernard knows which side of the crust his pizza gets its cheese and pepperoni on etc etc. He performs as Imus's reliable working-class "neo-Nazi" foil, but he also has to humor him constantly and help him out with the homo-erotic humor. That's part of his job. It's not easy, managing to do that for years without becoming a butt boy.

But I doubt that Bernard is dating Steve or Harry. Relax.

Gringoman, i don't really follow the slimus so i had no idea his relationship with Bernard was that involved. Now that I am clued in, I'd like to suggest good ol' 'rick' as a replacement for Bernard.

As for Bernard, we'll just gift wrap him and put him in a box and FEDEX him to M/M for safe keeping.

Thanks Gringoman and UG. Bernard made the front page of the New York Times:

In certain quarters, of course, Mr. Paladino’s invective has a ready audience. On Thursday morning, Bernard McGuirk, a talk-show host on WABC-AM in New York, described Mr. Paladino as “a breath of fresh air to a lot of us,” even as he gently questioned Mr. Paladino about his run-in with Mr. Dicker.

“I won’t play in their sandbox,” said Mr. Paladino, who was studiously calm but unrepentant. “I’m not politically correct, purposefully. These people are no good.”

We want Bernard to have his own show.

I've been participating in Tea Party events since the beginning and I've never heard any member discuss this. People do discuss social issues. The Tea Party is comprised of Ron Paul Liberatarians and they probably do support this, but the main issue that everyone has in common is fiscal conservatism, limited government, opposing wasteful spending (like spending $27 million to replace all the street signs in NYC with small cap letters) and high taxes.

I understand your concern with the culture Honest Abe, but I would like to try to unify with the Ron Paul people as best I can because I think the immediate problem we are fighting is overspending.

I have problems with the media but I've stopped watching most shows and I have discovered that it is possible to eliminate the media from my life by replacing trashy tv shows and biased news reporting with book, radio and other activities. The news media seems to have discovered that they are losing viewers to their far-left agenda.

The Tea Party does support the Constitution, the First Amendment and your right to vocalize your concerns about the media's influence the younger generation.

I heard racist remarks from a minority group too, but one member of "the group" spoke out against them. It was uncomfortable, but I know these people (and they are good people) and I support their right for free speech, just as I like this blog because Monica reports our right to free speech.

Liberals seem to be the ones that censor speech. I don't like to censor speech because if people are allowed to discuss what they really feel or think, we might actually be able to address issues.

The following video is for conservative viewership ONLY:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9_ZWzC9N98

"This literally and figuratively dramatic video could have substituted, I believe, a number of other nations in its narrative. Sweden, Germany, France, Australia, and the U.S.: nobody asked us whether we wanted our countries transformed. No, our betters decided to do it for us, in the name of diversity, in the name of extinguishing our alleged guilt for the past, in the name of "progress". In this country, now that many, perhaps a majority, are indeed questioning our dispossession from our own country, our leaders call us racists and tell us that we don't know what's good for us. Only they do."

Chris Christi is REALLY reminding me of Obama when Obama inserts himself into these type of stories. Yes, it is a REAL tragedy that the Rutgers student killed himself and my breaks for him, his family and his friends, but... the kid who did it WAS 18.

http://abcnews.go.com/US/suicide-rutgers-university-freshman-tyler-clementi-stuns-veteran/story?id=11763784

Does it not seem to you that the BIG government and BIG media are doing the same thing to the 18-year-old kid that he did to his roomate?

I saw previews of a movie that I can't find called Boy A. The movie was about a kid in a private school who was involved in a murder on the playground and was sent to reform school as punishment. We now see him released at 18 as a delivery guy who risks his life to save a little girl from a burning car. BIG media destroys what is left from his life by connecting him to the past.

Congratulations, BIG government and BIG media. If we end up with more suicides over this story, YOU will be held accountable.

Monica,

If there are so many black conservatives "out there" as Charles Lollar claims, then how come Obama (rated the most liberal Senator) got 95% of the black vote? Even the 'titular' head of the Republican Party, General Rectum Powell, turned traitor on McCain and voted for Barry. How do you explain that uncomfortable truth?

Ummah,

I assume that Bernard will continue what Imus expects of him. But just in case of an opening, your Rick idea might have legs, or boots. There's the Marine connection. Imus points out that he too was in the Marines. He tells us he used to blow a bugle.

@NewAccountFFS Churchill was a fat degenerate alcoholic and a homosexual who wasn't great and was voted out of office during the war. You can thank him for supporting the use of chemical weapons, genocide, and poison gas, well before the Germans allegedly did this. He is the reason the state is in this position, and the reason the soviets controlled half of europe for a half a century. You can thank him for the collapse of your empire.

The Meg Whitman mess: Could it be…

Increasingly it looks as if Meg Whitman, the catastrophic GOP candidate for Governor of California, is not very bright.

I know, I know, Princeton, Harvard MBA, $1.3Billion fortune…Affirmative action? Overpaid and fortuitously-positioned bureaucrat? Remember, Whitman is not Steve Jobs or Bill Gates – she did not invent EBAY.

How else to explain spending several years preparing to run for office and not facing and fixing the problem of having an illegal alien housekeeper? Did she think the immigration issue could be excluded? That the voters were too dumb to think of it?

Even worse, how else to explain Whitman courts Latinos in bid to defuse controversy over maid By Michael J. Mishak and Seema Mehta, Los Angeles Times October 2, 2010

"Meg Whitman’s campaign for governor has doubled its advertising on Spanish-language radio and increased the number of its Latino television spots by roughly 50% as the former EBay chief executive seeks to blunt the impact of news that she employed, then fired, an illegal immigrant as a housekeeper."

What matters in the Tea Party - is representation.

Right now the political center exists only in the external lobby and it represents only those who up a retainer. Politicians are driven to the margins and that is where we are getting our representation, as it were. That's where we need a Tea party - to get up in the morning and dismantle the lobby, which is dismantling the proper functioning of governmental departments, and directing clients through legal loopholes. WE MUST WIN BACK THE POLITICAL CENTER AS A REPRESENTATIVE FORM OF GOVERNMENT.

DJ


As it stands now, in our two-party system, the GOP MUST continually move to the left in order to compete against the Dems for votes. As this process proceeds, sooner or later their will come a tipping point (I beleive one more presidential election cycle will bring it on) when middle class conservatives will finally wake-up and realize their interests have been completely ignored thus the time will be ripe for a third party to emerge. A third party such as the Constitution Party.

SOCIALIST OBAMUNISM BOOMING

Federal Workers Don’t Share Recession Pain

While many workers in the private sector have been suffering the effects of the recession, federal employees have been enjoying a boom in employment and compensation — at taxpayers’ expense.

“For nearly two years, millions of private-sector workers have made often painful sacrifices because of failed federal economic policies and skyrocketing federal spending and debt. But the opposite has been true for federal workers,” the Washington Examiner states in an editorial.

According to the Examiner:


Beginning in 2008, federal employees earning $100,000 or more a year rose from 14 percent to 19 percent of the civil service workforce of 2 million.
During that period, Washington added around 100,000 new jobs, while more than 7 million private-sector jobs were lost.
The average compensation for a federal worker now stands at $123,049, more than double the private-sector average.
Of the 10 counties with the highest per capita income, six are in the Washington, D.C., area.
The Heritage Foundation reported that four out of the five jobs President Obama claimed were “created or saved” by the stimulus bill were in government.

JIM SINCLAIR. Investment Trader///////I have travelled from the bush to Mwanza on Lake Victoria and am now on to Dubai, followed then with a 14 hour flight to New York.

It is very hard to leave Tanzania. The sincere respect shown to me there cannot be equalled anywhere.

I spent this morning with the Dar Stock Exchange. It was so thrilling to hear Tanzania in open outcry trading of the companies active here.

In time there will be great profits made with these national exchanges as they become private and Africa grows. For those that doubt this growth, you should have been with me in India in 1985. The idea that the hoards of multi millions in abject and grinding poverty would ever enter a consumer economy appeared then totally impossible. Look at India now.

There are 900,000,000 people in Africa that will build a vibrant consumer industry as has India and other Asian nations.

Africa is rising, of that I assure you.

Asanti Sana,

Did Mohammed Exist?

SPENGLER///////The most prominent Alevi scholar in the West was the convert Muhammad Sven Kalisch at the University of Munster in Germany. Professor Kalisch since has repudiated Islam and resigned his position as chief instructor of Muslim pedagogues for the German school system, although he continues to teach at Munster.

Kalisch, as I reported at the time, scandalized the Muslim world with a 2008 paper claiming that the Prophet Mohammed was a figure of myth [1]. Citing the work of Western Koran critics, Kalisch claimed that the prophet's life was the fabrication of 8th-century apologists:

It is a striking fact that such documentary evidence as survives from the Sufnayid period makes no mention of the messenger of god at all. The papyri do not refer to him. The Arabic inscriptions of the Arab-Sasanian coins only invoke Allah, not his rasul [messenger]; and the Arab-Byzantine bronze coins on which Muhammad appears as rasul Allah, previously dated to the Sufyanid period, have not been placed in that of the Marwanids. Even the two surviving pre-Marwanid tombstones fail to mention the rasul.

Islam, he concluded, was a revival of the old Gnosticism expunged by Christianity and embraced instead by the Arabian tribes. In spite of the provocative character of his claims, Kalisch was defended by the large community of Alevi Turks resident in Germany.

Kalisch appears to be the theological equivalent of a lone gunman. He devised his thesis quite on his own, and quashed the controversy he created by abjuring Islam. Nonetheless, he showed how simple it is to invent new Islamic heresies. With handful of provocateurs and a small amount of funding, his project well might have become more than a minor irritation. With a dozen scholars, a score of operatives on the ground, and a budget of a few million dollars, a competent intelligence service could have a handful of Muslim heresies merrily contending for the mantle of the prophet.

GLENN REYNOLDS////// But those establishment GOP figures who think that they’ll cruise to victory and a return to the pocket-stuffing business-as-usual that marked the prior GOP majority need to think again. This election cycle is, in a very real sense, a last chance for the Republicans. If they blow it, we’re likely to see third-party challenges in 2012, not only at the Presidential level but in numerous Congressional races as well.

For the national GOP, it’s do-or-die time. So guys, you’d better perform — unless you want me to be writing another “I told you so” column in 2013. And trust me, you don’t.

gringoNOTE: And how many of these Goopers will take the money and run----to the Dems for 2012? In NY lots of them, like fat Al D'Amato, are in effect doing that already, backing Andrew "Subprime" Cuomo for Governor against "The Fumigator" Carl Paladino.

Honest Abe

Never has there been such a huge disjuncture between a populace and its ruling elite. Who would ever believe a people would tolerate it in a democratic, free government by the people, for the people, of the people?

At first blush, adding citizens to government employment roles is the easiest. Then there would be the government and the banks.

The only way for this dynamic to alter, is for a grassroots movement to derange the mercantile arrangements set up, or at the very least, to raise a little hell so they acquire come concessions. So far, nada. Something like a shell game.

According to Wen Jiabao, the economic trouble in the US is not China's fault. Although the economy in China is state run and controlled, he stated the US is to blame because it did not even defend its own economy-- because of corruption.

1. Over the past half century Africans have demonstrated an ability to perpetrate the fastest genocides in history. The lightning speed, unmatched even by Nazis, Stalinists and Maoists, despite an "arsenal" of little more than machetes, spears and clubs, made outside intervention virtually impossible.

2. But assume the alternative, that the Africans don't resort to "natural" proclivities for culling population, i.e. assume they become more like Hindus, practicing a gentler, kinder kind of Africa instead of more Ibo massacres, Rwandas, Sierra Leones and Congo nightmares. India today has a greater population on far less space than the vast continent of Africa. It's already had a "Malthusian explosion." Yet, according to observers like Jim Sinclair, it is even beginning to prosper in the Asia Awakening.

Oct. 4 (Bloomberg) — Nassim Nicholas Taleb, whose book “The Black Swan” described how unforeseen events can roil global markets, said Dubai’s economy is more robust than that of the U.S. as its debt problem can be “controlled.”

“Even if you take perhaps the worst of emerging markets, a place like Dubai, you realize Dubai is more robust than the United States,” Taleb said at a mutual funds conference in Manama, Bahrain today. “Dubai has been borrowing to put buildings on postcards. It can stop that, but America needs to borrow just to open the doors in the morning. That’s why I’m not comfortable with the United States.”

I am afraid that the empirical record allows no other conclusion. One can always hope for change LOL, but it's highly unlikely.

Caucasians have the problem that those of us who are individualistically inclined cannot count on the solidarity of those among us who are collectivists.

White collectivists tend to devote their energies to support the interests and goals of black collectivists, thus directly undermining US.

Before Mugabe came to power Zimbabwe was Africa's breadbasket. Now that white farmers have been driven off their lands by a campaign of genocide and murder, the country is devastated.

Famine rules the land.

Look for Moonbat white people to join the chorus of "we must give aid to poor impoverished Zimbabwe" as soon as the first Third Worldists at the UN start to open their fat and always loud yaps demanding Western taxpayer funds, which invariably will make them feel good for taking OUR money from its "selfish" producers and giving it to the "needy".

Look for Mugabe or his progeny to take up residence next to Idi Amin on the Lake Geneva shoreline sometime soon.

Nice to know what working a second job can buy us at the UN, isn't it?

That said let's not leave the crafty Asians unmentioned. Chinese are in Africa too. Unlike US, they are there securing their own interests and their interests ONLY.

I don't think there's anything wrong with that. If only we did the same!

Another thing, UG: The Chinese would NEVER allow Africans to immigrate into China. At least not in any significant numbers.

It's one thing to do business in Africa, or provide charity for the African people, but to turn around and invite them into Western countries by the millions is insane.

Genocides notwithstanding, the experts predict the population in Africa will double within the next 30 years.

DJ,

Even if the population doubles, the Dark Continent would still be far less inhabited per square mile or hectare than the fairly dark subcontinent of India is already. So I must assume that (1)you don't mean 'population' or (2) you mean 'population' but you don't mean only population. When you say population you mean it as a co-factor along with something else. Otherwise, you would have to view the fairly dark sub-continent of India (not to mention China) in even more dire straits than Africa, and you don't seem to be doing that.


"2. But assume the alternative, that the Africans don't resort to "natural" proclivities for culling population, i.e. assume they become more like Hindus, practicing a gentler, kinder kind of Africa ...

DJ,

What's this fruity business? Is Africa the apple or the orange?

As for dealing you "out of the action," if you mean making money and getting resources in Africa and Asia, Ummah is pointing out that even if Americans (like DJ?)are not interested, the Chinese are clearly very interested and don't mind the Americans staying away. (Ummah probably knew this without even reading some of my previous posts on the Chinese in Africa today.) Apparently, as Ummah can confirm, the Chinese are not scared out of Africa by the Mugabes here and there. (It really is a VAST continent, even if geography is no longer taught in US schools.) In fact the Chinese are busy accumulating not just oil etc, but rare earth minerals which the Pentagon will need for strategic weaponry etc, while Americans are busy with their platitudes. Of course, I don't mean all Americans. Types like Jim Sinclair and Doug Casey don't depend on CNN or Fox or blog sites. They and their associates go see for themselves and decide accordingly. I know the feeling. I got so tired of everybody telling me about Vietnam, so I finally went and got my own look. And I never knew this was a characteristic of Faustian Man.

GringoBRO,

I've been aware the Chinese have been making inroads in Africa for quite awhile now - Latin America too. These developments are troubling indeed. Anyway, maybe I've been misinformed, but from what I've read on the issue, the Chinese are welcomed with open arms in Africa whilst America, or American owned companies has been given the cold shoulder. True?

As for venture capital, I want to make sure the country it is being invested in first and foremost has a stable government. So far I have very little confidence in ANY sub-Saharan country...even the Government of South Africa is volatile.

That said, what percentage of YOUR investment portfolio is invested in sub-Saharan African companies?
