Tuesday Monring Thread

As a life-long Washington Capitals fan who has seen many a playoff disappointment, last night may have been the most demoralizing end to a hockey game I have ever seen, including the three-overtime loss that I attended last week. I guess my life-long dream of watching the Stanley Cup carried down Constitution Avenue may have to wait yet another year….

Be prepared for these new polls from Public Policy Polling for the states of Iowa and Ohio, at least according to the glee on their Twitter page last night.

Going to have President numbers in Iowa and Ohio tomorrow…Obama looking pretty good in both.

Will be back as the polls come out….

    Uno!!

  2. Sy says:

    PPP is a joke. Of course, Obama is going to look healthy in a PPP poll.

  3. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    PPP claiming Obama is gonna be up big in 2 states where it’s been shown otherwise? color me shocked

  4. MD says:

    He will have Obama up 9 in IA and 7 in OH. Just a guess. This is the normal Tommy J activity of trying to shape an agenda instead of just being factual. His final 2 polls will revert to reality. Yawn.

  5. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney Channeling HHR Crystal Ball Hack says:

    hey guys why you hating on PPP? so if they show Obama up big in OH & IA? it’s true! PPP is the gold standard. stop apying attention to the fact IA’s last polling showed Mitt ahead or that OH’s last polling had Obama w/in the MOE. PPP tells us where the election is gonna end up like. Stop being GOP hacks!

  6. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    I say Obama up 7-10 in OH & up 10-13 in IA according to little Tommy. I guess he’s trying to feel better because he still keeps crying over the marriage amendment…

  7. MD says:

    You are right Author. I was having that very discussion with Senator Marshall and Governor White. We all had a good laugh.

    The election will be close. We could lose both IA and OH but neither will be by much if that happens. Tommy J will show results now that will just border on a landslide.

  8. MD says:

    Author,

    Dustin/Melissa/Native NC/Erick NC and a host of others told us that it would go down in flames.

  9. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    @7 I agreed MD. I still say its 50/50 and that it’s not a sure thing though i’m an optimist atheart. I can see Obama winning but in a close one. Listen to little Tommy and you’d think we were on our way to a LBJ landslide.

  10. MD says:

    The markets are worried about Greece! LOL! They must default and that has been the only real solution for a very long time.

    Anarchy, chaos. The summer of 12 is going to be awesome.

  11. MD says:

    Author – my prediction is that the D’s will never nominate a white male again. They now have a factional approach to elections and they can’t get enough support by going after broad constituencies.

    Not that minorities are not qualified. I am for the best man or woman for the job despite ethnicity. It is just that the D’s will now exclude white men in the future. They cannot win with a white male unless they somehow find a bible thumper who is close to an R. I don’t see that happening.

  12. EML says:

    I agree

  13. Brandon says:

    #12. I agree.

  14. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    is #12 a safe link?

  15. Phil says:

    In Jensen’s world, there are no swing states – just a sea of blue from sea to shinining sea.

    However, there’s a possibility that Romney has a slight lead in PPP’s upcoming polls in Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho.

    Seriously folks, how can the national polls be tied when, according to Jensen, Obama is up by 7 in Virginia, 8 or 9 in Ohio, 5 or 6 in NC…….

    In 2008, Obama didn’t carry any of those states by that much? We’re supposed to believe Obama is stronger now?

    Jensen’s 6 months out polling bull sh*t.

  16. Walt says:

    Dave Wissing, I am not a hockey fan at all.

    But I feel your pain to have the win taken away in NY with 6 seconds to go.

    I know that was crushing. But we all have to buck up and move on.

    Be like Scarlett O’Hara in GWTW. :)

  17. Scott says:

    #16- Phil
    Yes,Jensen/PPP has become a caricature of itself as a Democrat Party hack.If he would show Romney with a lead in one(1) swing state,he would recoup some credibility.
    As night follows day,in the Iowa and Ohio data he will release today,Obama’s substantial leads will be a result of a massive lead among Independents,which in PPP polls are nothing more than Dems who show a one second hesitation before saying they will vote for the O Man.
    Jensen and his cohorts are displeased that Ras recently showed him up in the Montana Senate Poll and and he could not create any momentum against the NC Marriage Amendment.

  18. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    Dave i’m sorry but i’m thinking the finals will be NY VS LA

  19. Walt says:

    WV Democrat primaray voters have a choice of which criminal to vbote for for President–Obammer or Judd.

    Little-known Obama challenger could get delegate

    The Charleston Gazette

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Usually, it takes a majority of votes to win an election, but part of one contest today could hinge on whether the challenger can get 15 percent of the vote.

    Under state and national Democratic Party rules, if little-known Democratic presidential candidate Keith Judd secures 15 percent of the vote in today’s election, he will technically be entitled to have at least one delegate from West Virginia at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

    Which could be problematic, since Judd is also known as Inmate No. 11593-051 at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas, where he is serving a 210-month sentence for extortion.

  20. Tim V says:

    Walt, I have decided to withdraw my application to the HOBO team/club.

  21. Walt says:

    Tim V,

    SSQ got to you, huh?

  22. Tim V says:

    22- lol.

  23. SoHope says:

    I would register as a WV Dem just for that, Walt…

    “WV, democrats would rather have a this guy than Barack Obama!!!”

  24. Don'tcountyourchickensbeforetheyhatchNYCmike says:

    19.Dave i’m sorry but i’m thinking the finals will be NY VS LA

    Ranger fans may hunt you down if you keep this up!

  25. Bitterlaw says:

    Suck it, HOBOs. We have people begging to join the Philly A-holes. You can’t even get Tim V.?

  26. Tim V says:

    bitter, go home and watch your 5 hdtv’s.

  27. MD says:

    Everybody secretly wants to be an ahole but most know they have no chance of reaching that exulted status.

  28. Brandon says:

    Rasmussen today:

    Approval 47/52

    10:30 AM – Sentiments on Ron Paul as an Independent Candidate
    12:00 PM – Massachusetts Senate Results
    1:00 PM – Employment Update Part II
    3:00 PM – Looking Ahead Part II

  29. Tim V says:

    sohope, i tried defending you at bjg but judyt and mary aren’t buying it

  30. Livin'withoutCableNYCmike says:

    “bitter, go home and watch your 5 hdtv’s.”

    -that Ranger game was so exciting on the radio last night!

  31. MD says:

    JudyT is still in denial on he lesbianism and
    JustMary is probably drunk already.

  32. MD says:

    How often does JudyThighs service IP?

  33. SoHope says:

    Tim V was warned that his seat on Team Evangelical’s Security Council could be in jepardy in order to avoid intangling alliances.

    Now if the HOBOs are willing to enter 3-party talks and settle their differences with the Philly A-holes, they can apply to become a protectorate of Team Evangelical.

  34. Tim V says:

    Sharp2edgedsword permalink

    judy, you have only seen a small part of hope. he has a good sense of humor and has a kind heart for the most part. who among us is without a few warts ?

    judyt2012 permalink

    25 … all evidence seen to date indicates your statements are patently false. I have seen no evidence of a sense of humor and even less indications of a kind heart.

    yes we all have flaws, but most of us try not to lead with our flaws, sohope appears to enjoy showing us all its wart covered ass.

  35. Tim V says:

    bitter, the only one that is desperate to join the aholes is jason and he is ALREADY an ahole.

  36. NYCmike says:

    “sohope appears to enjoy showing us all its wart covered ass.”

    That’s a good line!

  37. SoHope says:

    When you ban someone from something that they supposedly said on another blog, that is just crap.

    They know my beef, If all they will do is block my postings and not ban me or allow my final FU they just prove how weak they are.

  38. SoHope says:

    I have a 2 pimples on my but…one small birth mark on my right cheek….BUT NO WARTS!!!

    LIARS!!! THE WHOLE LOT OF THEM…LIARS I TELL YOU!!!

  39. MD says:

    Jason is not an a-hole.

    JudyT is a Marxist and that is not a joke.

  40. Bitterlaw says:

    Hope – The ass talk may get IP to call you.

  41. Tim V says:

    If all they will do is block my postings and not ban me or allow my final FU – hope

    hope, i don’t think susy would approve of that language or that kind of attitude

    I think it reflects poorly on Team Evangelical. Remember, we are to LOVE our enemies.

  42. Bitterlaw says:

    Clarification:

    Jason is an a-hole. He is not a Philly A-hole. We protect our brand.

  43. MD says:

    JudyT is upset because her thighs have grown. Hint – squats with light weight and many reps. Servicing isn’t enough. She should now that by now.

  44. MD says:

    Servicing IP isn’t enough.

  45. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    I cant wait to see that MA senate update by Ras now that voters have chewed on nativeamerican-gate

  46. Tim V says:

    MD says:
    May 8, 2012 at 8:58 am
    Jason is not an a-hole

    he may not be a PHILLY a-hole but due to his constant bullying of SSQ and always seeking fights with others ( mnw for one) I consider him to be a first class AHOLE ( truce be darned ).

    his favorite word in attacking evangelicals is SANCTIMONIUOS.

  47. SoHope says:

    I am on sabbatical until I fulfill my blood oath…my badge and service pistol are sitting in my top right desk drawer.

    I saved up a lot of vacation days over the years…it will be ok, Tim

  48. Jerry muthertruckin' Cruncher says:

    Can we drop ppp? They are not reputable.

  49. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    we might as well have PPP to kick around, come October it’ll be time to take them serious

  50. Barrett says:

    #52 – I second that

  51. Phil says:

    Jensen is a god.

    PPP, the only pollster with a real handle on public opinion….

  52. DW says:

    Palading/CFP tweet: Releasing POTUS polls today from VA and CO. One of them is what we would expect, the other isn’t. Overall great numbers for Romney.

  53. Walt says:

    Tim V–

    Just so you know, while SSQ was trying to talk you out of your HOBO application she was multiple texting Sickofdems and me and furiously pleading to be admitted to the HOBOs. SHE wanted the Chaplain job.
    ****************************************
    We explained to her that she is not qualified for membership because:

    1. She is not lefthanded
    2. She could not anatomically qualify for membership
    3. She looks FAR younger than the rest of us and not “old” at all (actually she is pretty HOT looking, just like her former-student-now-tight-abs-handy-man said she was)
    4. She refuses to type
    “Philly A-holes”
    5. She thinks France surrendered
    WW I (known to her as WW !)
    6. When we had club meetings, and we told jokes, it would be awkward for Sickofdems and I when she would wag her finger at us and chastise us for being mean spirited .

  54. Walt says:

    BTW, the pitcher that intentionally plunked Wash. National Brian Harper.

    He is an A-hole for doing that. He said it was part of how ALL new players should be initiated into the big leagues–hit em.

    No sense in that.

    I got hit twice in the same game. First time the pitcher nailed me in the temple with a fastball right in the temple jusgt below the batting helmet. I was out cold.
    ********************************
    Come to think of it, maybe that is the reason I am like I am today…

  55. DW says:

    Just a few reminders before the PPP(D) poll for IA is released. The last poll of IA was mid-february by DesMoines Register. They had it 46/44 for Romney. Nothing has changed since then, other than Romney locking up the nomination and thereby getting a modest bump.

    Four years ago also in February, DesMoines Register had IA shown to be 53/36 in favor of Obama over McCain.

    So whatever PPP(D) says, take it in light of this DesMoines Register poll.

  56. DW says:

    What I meant to say is that the IA DesMoines Register was the last newspaper driven poll. Paladin/CFP released a poll of IA yesterday showing Romney up 47/44.

  57. Scott says:

    Please go to The Drudge Report and see what has-been celebrity has said about Romney and other conservatives.
    Can we make a list of celebrities and other VIP’s who say they will depart the USA if Romney prevails?
    Besides Cher,are there any others to date?

  58. Lakas says:

    You mean PPP will put out another poll of Registered Voters, not Likely Voters? Oh color me surprised.

  59. bio mom says:

    This is worth reading. About how the race card will be used by Obama and how Romney should respond.

    http://www.city-journal.org/2012/eon0507hs.html

  60. jason says:

    ” his favorite word in attacking evangelicals is SANCTIMONIUOS.”

    No, the word in SANCTIMONIOUS…

    And I don’t use it to attack evangelicals, I use it to describe ssq.

    I admire evangelicals and people of faith, I abhor people who think this the right forum for passing moral judgment on other posters and for advancing bigotry based on religion.

    I hope that’s clear.

    And considering I am applying to the A-hole club, calling me one is not a violation of the truce.

  61. Bitterlaw says:

    MD – I called Cole Hamels’ agent. I think we can get him to speak at our next meeting. He has some time off now.

  62. MD says:

    They said the same thing after Bush was elected, twice but none of them left. They all stayed.

    Funny, now none of the Nats players seemed to care about Harper getting plunked. It was left to the GM to express outrage.

    I have a funny feeling that a couple of Nats players may have mentioned how cocky the kid is and might need to learn a little humility.

  63. MD says:

    Hamels should have lied afterwards. That is the time honored tradition.

  64. Hmmm says:

    PPP: Our first night of polling in AZ has Obama in a stunning position.

  65. bio mom says:

    Romney 49, Obama 44 in ras today.

  66. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    Rasmussen

    Romney (R) 49%
    Obama (D-Inc) 44%

  67. Phil says:

    Arizona?

    This is now beyond comedy.

    It keeps getting better…

  68. Bitterlaw says:

    Maybe Werth told Hamels “send a message.” Too bad Werth broke his wrist but at least he won’t starve.

  69. bio mom says:

    These ppp tweets are now becoming hysterically funny. They will be obvious fools to publish a slew of polls all showing Obama with comfortable leads while most other polls are going in the opposite direction. Only fools rush in where wise men never go. The fools are those who rely on this type of agenda polling.

  70. Hmmm says:

    Romney 49, Obama 44 in ras today.

    hello april jobs report.

  71. Phil says:

    Arizona, Iowa, NC, Va, Ohio……an Obama sweep yet he’s somehow tied or behind in the national polls.

    Jensen, you very funny man.

  72. Phil says:

    Jensen is playing a game with his classification of independents. That’s pretty obvious.

  73. MD says:

    BREAKING!

    PPP tweet:

    “Some preliminary polling indicates that President Obama is in a virtual tie with Romney in Georgia. Folks, we could be looking at a blowout”.

  74. SoHope says:

    The president’s re-election team is out with a new ad, “Go,” running in nine swing states, as part of a whopping $25 million ad buy this month.

    The new Obama ad will run in Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Nevada, New Hampshire, Iowa, North Carolina, Florida, and Colorado.

    —What? No Arizona??? I guess even Obama knows PPP is full of crap!

  75. DW says:

    63…someone once said that one of the ironies of Christianity is that we have such a humble Christ, but such proud christians. No Christian should be santimonious (self-righteous) as no one has any self-righteousness that would impress God anyway. Its why I need a Savior, and why I need God’s forgiveness. But I agree that this forum was not intended for the purpose of being a pulpit to preach to others. I have no problem with people sharing what God has done in their own lives, but we should leave it at that.

  76. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    the national polling has been showing a bump for Mitt post-jobs report

  77. SoHope says:

    BREAKING!

    PPP tweet:

    “Some preliminary polling indicates that President Obama is surging in Utah. Folks, This is going to be huge”.

  78. What did you expect? says:

    PPP(D) tweet: “Shocked to find in the first day of polling OKLAHOMA that Obama is running a few points ahead of Romney! This state was 66/34 for McCain over Obama four years ago.”

  79. RickPerrysParakeet says:

    11 MD

    I have thought of this its an intriguing possibility you may be right…

  80. MD says:

    BREAKING!

    PPP Tweet:

    “President Obama is within striking distance in Kansas and Alabama. A truly historic trouncing could occur”.

  81. MD says:

    MFG – I really believe that. Think about who they are trying to get. A middle aged, white guy would be there worst option. We talk a lot about who the R’s would run in 16 if Obama wins in 12 but who will the Dems run? It won’t be HRC. I will guarantee that.

    God, I have a worthless internal meeting coming up. A complete and total waste of my time.

  82. SoHope says:

    BREAKING!

    PPP tweet:

    “I just saw clip on youtube of President Obama walking on water and raising the dead…this is incredible. 4 more years, 4 more years, 4 more years”

  83. Bitterlaw says:

    I think Obama’s landslide will be so enormous that some Electors will vote twice. I see Obama getting 837 EVs.

  84. DW says:

    86…you are on to something there…4 + 4 + 4 = 12 more years. Obama will try to out-do FDR.

  85. SoHope says:

    Obama is raising the dead so they can vote and walking on water so he can get donations from overseas.

  86. DW says:

    As a member of the executive board of Paladin/CFP, I am embarrassed that our polling firm is in the same industry as PPP(D). We understand that disreputable firms damage the credibility of pollsters as a whole.

  87. Walt says:

    You will see no rescue polls for Obammer in WV.

    The best it would say is that

    “Obammer has positive movement in WV, having cut his 17 point deficit to 16 points.”

  88. Barrett says:

    Hope, I trust robot cars more than I do regular drivers

  89. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    Real Clear Politics has posted Rasmussen’s find on Obama’s approval rating but can’t seem to want to post Romney’s 5 point lead in the same poll. hmmm…

  90. NYCmike says:

    “I have a funny feeling that a couple of Nats players may have mentioned how cocky the kid is and might need to learn a little humility.”

    MD,
    I think the Nats pitcher drilled Hamels with a pitch, which would send the message that they have the kid’s back. No talk needed, talk is cheap. That’s why Bitterlaw wears those cheap suits.
    Plus, Harper went and stole home on Hamels, so the kid showed him up in the right way! I like him even more now!

  91. SusyQue says:

    #79…DW…….Interesting, you can cuss, discuss and revel in sensuous dialog; post scantily clothed women in urls; mention private body parts of men and women; use graphic language to discuss sex acts; but don’t discuss your spiritual side.

    There are two sides to Jesus…He is merciful, but He is also a just Judge. Most people only hear about the mercy side of Him….More is said about his judgments. Read the Book of Revelation and you hair will stand on end.

    This is Dave Wissing’s blog…but who follows his rules…we can’t find them anymore. Let’s just go with the flow
    as we have been doing. To each his own post…called “freedom of speech.”

  92. EML says:

    85 – Cuomo

  93. SoHope says:

    There are times when I think SSQ isn’t real, that she is just an act.

  94. ParakeetsForRomney2012 says:

    Today’s Obama Unicorn pic:

  95. jenny-the conservative movement is dead says:

    Romney has a five point lead over Obama!

  96. SoHope says:

    OK, I am outta here a few hours

  97. ParakeetsForRomney2012 says:

    C (Canadian)

  98. Bitterlaw says:

    SSQ- why are you the only person who preaches here? DW, SoHope, Tim V., and Barret don’t. I have no doubt that their faith is as strong and sincere as yours.

  99. ParakeetsForRomney2012 says:

    What’d I tell you Jenny?

    Trust your local parakeet, always…

  100. SoHope says:

    This time I am gone for real..

  101. SusyQue says:

    #103…to each his own.

  102. DW says:

    96…I know all about the book of Revelation. Doing a series right now on it. I do agree that there is too much smut posted here. I just ignore it. It’s Dave’s site, and he can apply whatever rules he wants. But this IS a political blog. And I can assure you that if your TRUE desire is to win converts to Christianity, the way you are going about it is not likely to be used by the Spirit of God to accomplish that end. Yes, share the gospel, but care for people and pray for people, and show them the love that Christ has shown to you, and then sit back and watch God work in their lives.

  103. Bitterlaw says:

    Too much smut? DW, you were almost today’s Favorite Evangelical. SoHope loves smut so he gets the title today.

  104. SusyQue says:

    #108…DW…
    “Yes, share the gospel, but care for people and pray for people, and show them the love that Christ has shown to you, and then sit back and watch God work in their lives.”

    Thank you….that is the way I live.

  105. Jeff G. says:

    Romney has had 5-6 point leads in the RAS daily tracking poll a few times over the past couple of months, but it always slowly wiggles back to a tie or an Obama 2-3 point lead. I think this time last week Obama led 47-44. When you consider MOE, it shows that Romney is about tied or maybe slightly ahead with about 5-8 percent undecided. He’s very likely to take a majority of those votes.

  106. ParakeetsForRomney2012 says:

    HappyJesusUnicorn has 43%-45% of the vote in a DEPRESSION

    How do you think undecideds will break?

    Bet you anything he’s figuring out the best timing for a war on Iran

    Gotta wag that dog you know…

  107. DW says:

    109…my point is, this is a political blog. Too much of anything non-political can become a problem. Sometimes there is too much sports or too much debate about the civil war.

  108. SusyQue says:

    DW…”I know all about the book of Revelation. Doing a series right now on it. I do agree that there is too much smut posted here. I just ignore it.”

    I understand, so just ignore my posts that offend you. I am not ashamed of the Gospel. Romans 1:16

  109. SusyQue says:

    #113…DW…I think we are fortunate to have use of the HHR blog.

  110. Bitterlaw says:

    I guess there are no other blogs that discuss religion. That seems odd but I guess SSQ can only post here.

  111. DW says:

    114…[This is for SusyQ, others feel free to scroll down]…I am not ashamed of the gospel either. Far from it. But there is a verse along the lines of sharing the gospel that instructs us to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. When I do “cold-turkey” evangelism, attempting to introduce Christ to people I have never met before, I take a completely different approach than when I am working with someone I have known and befriended for some time. No offense, but your approach here at HHR seems to be centered only around warning of judgment, and the subtle proud inference that you have impressed God to the point that you are going to get out of it. That’s how people are receiving your message. You should stress your sinfulness and the forgiveness you received from God because of what Christ did for you. That you are not any better than anyone else, but just better off, again, to the credit of what Christ did. Yes, there is coming judgment, but why not also share the beauty of Christ as well?As it is, you seem to be driving people away rather than drawing them in.

  112. Rockefeller Republican says:

    Good morning friends, fun-lovers & truth-seekers! Very glad to see Mitt campaigning yesterday in Democratic Cleveland area yesterday…he will run well in the suburbs there and carry the state by 5-6 pts in the fall.

    What became of Corey – Mitt’s #1 fan here???

  113. Joe J says:

    Almost of the nations polls’ undecided voters (usually about 8% of the total vote) are right leaning indy’s who DO NOT approve of Obama at all. Romney will win these voters 3-1 easily

  114. SusyQue says:

    #116…Bitter…discussions of religion just comes in spurts. It is no big deal. Quite frankly, I am thankful and pleased to know that DW is a person who knows the Bible. We need a lot of pray-ers for this coming election.

  115. jason says:

    ssq cannot be a real person, has to be composite.

    A cross between religious zealotry and sexually repressed neurosis.

  116. Rockefeller Republican says:

    I detest gratuitous spirituality.

    People who wear their Christianity on their sleeve invariably turn out to be the most un-Christian people around.

    Worship in your own way – just don’t bray about it.

    I view exhibitionists like Tebow and Ssq with suspicion.

  117. Jesus H. Christ says:

    I know the Bible too, why don’t I get any credit…. And boy, am I waiting for Susy to get here…

    1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
    2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Mk. 4.24
    3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
    4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
    5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
    6 ¶ Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

    RCP just couldn’t bring themselves to drop off that National Journal poll showing Obama +8.

    #DW…Each of us has been given a motivational gift when we were born again: Each one has its strengths and weaknesses. You see my boldness as a weakness. My gift is Prophesy, perhaps yours is Mercy.

    Jesus came to me in a dream and told me to say that, troll.

  126. SusyQue says:

    #127…left out motivational gift of “helps”. I have two prayer partners. One has the gift of Mercy, the other Helps and Hospitality. We have never argued, we love and respect each other.

  127. jason says:

    ” You see my boldness as a weakness.”

    Maybe Sohope is right and ssq IS a guy.

    You have to have cojones to try to transform HHR into a religious blog.

    -Are they all the same person, or do you wear them on your hands, like Mr Vito?

  130. jason says:

    Wow, all I have is some A-holes to blog with.

    Having said that I think I prefer not having a life to having ssq’s life.

    When I start getting pleasure from staring at shutters its time to pull the plug.

  131. DW says:

    127…sorry to have to say this to you, but the interpretation of 1 Corinthians 13 that I hold to is that the apostolic sign gifts have ceased as the result of the end of the apostolic era, meaning that these gifts were intended to be God’s tool in the early church, prior to the completion of the New Testament. Once the NT was complete, which happened at the same time the apostles all died off, then there was no more need for these apostolic gifts of the Holy Spirit. Now certainly people have natural gifts and abilities, but that is different. The gift of “prophecy” has ceased because we have the fully sufficient Scriptures available to us. We do not need any other words from God.

    SOCK IT TO ME!

    My gift is the gift of exhortation!

    Keep up the good work, m-fers.

    DW lays the Scriptural smackdown.

  138. DW says:

    139…I am not trying to make her feel bad or belittle…I would rather have the conversation with her in private…but this is the only way to communicate without sharing private e-mail addresses.

    There. Fixed it for you.

  143. MD says:

    108 – there is no such thing as too much smut.

    I do try to limit that stuff to be honest. Once in a while I cave into temptation.

  144. MD says:

    113 – You mean you don’t like 400 posts devoted to a war that ended almost 150 years ago?

  145. MD says:

    124 – I have been saying this for a year. Brown is not going to have an easy election. The margin of victory will be razor thin.

  146. Bitterlaw says:

    MD – it’s the damned defenders of slavery who write the posts.*

    * Cream soda! Cream soda!

  147. DW says:

    148 – I attend a conservative evangelical church, it does have “baptist” in the name of the church, but we are independent of any denomination. We would identify most with the idea of being a Grace church…similar to that of the well-known John MacArthur, Jr., pastor of Grace Community Church in California. http://www.gty.org

  148. Brandon says:

    Massachusetts Senate(Rasmussen)

    Warren: 45%
    Brown: 45%

  149. MD says:

    Hey Brandon – since Brown is the incumbent, where would the undecideds go in that election? I actually bet Wes $20 that Brown would lose.

    Hopefully, I am wrong. I see control of the Senate hinging on that race now that Maine will go communist.

  150. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    PPP has Obama +7 in OH

  151. SusyQue says:

    #154…I have listened and taped many of John MacArthur sermons.
    I have deep respect for him and the way he is living his life. I listen to many sermons on sermonaudio.com. The internet has opened up a myriad of denomination sites to go to.

    When all us said and done…we are one with Him.

  152. bio mom says:

    Markets not happy today. Below 130000 on the Dow

  153. Barrett says:

    #157 – That’s just not possible. He won by 4 in 08 with all the momentum. There’s no way he’s increasing it by 3

  154. bio mom says:

    13000

  155. SusyQue says:

    #158…*is

  156. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Romney says:

    @160 I agree. last 3 OH polls had him up +4 in 1 (Ras) and up +2 in 2 (Purple Strategies & Quin). +7 is just more PPP hackery.

  157. Barrett says:

    If Obama is doing well in the swing states, and yet he and Romney are tied….doesn’t that mean Romney must be doing exceedingly well in conservative strongholds?

  158. DW says:

    Here is the latest official Paladin/CFP POTUS outlook. Your ONLY prognastication tool that completely ignores PPP(D) polls. States are sorted in descending order of GOP strength, from top to bottom and left to right.

    Lock R: (82) OK WY UT ID AL AK AR LA KS NE TN KY MS
    Safe R: (77) TX WV SC SD ND MT GA
    Likely R: (21) IN MO

    Likely D: (40) OR NJ CT WA
    Safe D: (34) MA IL DE
    Lock D: (108) CA MD RI NY VT HI DC

  159. Mr. Vito says:

    “….doesn’t that mean Romney must be doing exceedingly well in conservative strongholds?”

    Yes. He’s up by a whole 7 points in Texas.

    Woo woo.

  160. bigben says:

    Indiana opens polling 6 am-6pm EST
    PST they will close at 3pm PDT (6 hours to go!)

  161. MD says:

    157 – that was my guess! I know my Tommy J.

  162. bio mom says:

    164 Obama was only up 2 yesterday in the swing states poll!! So, is Romney winning PA or Wisconsin by 6 then to make up for supposedly being down 8 in Ohio? Ridiculous. Ignore these assinine ppp polls.

  163. Barrett says:

    #166 – Which is a clear indication of why the PPP polling is garbage.

    Romney would have to carry the plains/mountain states by incredible margins in order to tie nationally but lose swing states by 7% or more

  164. DW says:

    164…it would have to mean that, and that Obama is doing terrible in marxist strongholds like NYC, LA, Chicago, etc.

    Or it just means PPP(D) is full of it.

  165. MD says:

    165 – A completely fair assessment.

  166. Barrett says:

    #169 – You emphasize the point I’m trying to make. The numbers don’t add up. Is there one magical state where Romney is winning 100% that skews the national results?

  167. Bitterlaw says:

    MD – If control of the Senate depends upon Brown, I am even more angry and depressed over COD, Angle and Buck. Three seats gone for decades. I know. Nobody cares.

  168. SoHope says:

    I agree with DW. With the penning of Revelation, there is no longer a gift of prophecy. If God was still giving prophecy our Bibles would be loose leaf binders constently being added to.

  169. Barrett says:

    DW – I never thought of the whole “prophecy” thing that way. It’s somewhat enlightening and reassuring to know that.

    I’ve been needing prayers in some personal matters. This will definitely help

  170. MD says:

    174 – You have to find a way to move on. Regrettable? Yes. Worth obsessing over? Probably not at this point. Amazingly, a fairly significant minority in the party yearned to make the same exact mistake on a grand scale.

  171. Bitterlaw says:

    I got an e-mail from Santorum last night. After reading it twice, I’m still not sure if he endorsed Romney. However, I do know that he and Karen love me.

  172. Barrett says:

    #174 – I thought Dean Heller was polling well in NV?

  173. Walt says:

    HOBOs have captured the

    NEW THREAD.

  174. SoHope says:

    I always smirk when I hear a preacher pray that God give them the words to say when they are about to preach.

    She said “…comes in spurts” and no-body called her on it??

    Disgusting.

    We had DE and CO in 2010, not sure about NV. Harry Reid would have finishied strong against any republican.
