Politics / Re: Carville to GOP: You have a disaster on your hands
« on: January 22, 2012, 11:07:50 AM »
(CNN) -- Memo to Republican Establishment:

I would send this memo to each of you individually, but I'm not sure exactly who you are. I've been told that you exist and that people like my colleagues Bill Bennett, Karl Rove, and Bill Kristol are charter members of it.

I am assuming you are out there and I assume there are more than three of you. At any rate, I thought I'd take a moment to catch up with you and make some observations on how things are going for your party.

Let me break it to you gently -- you've got a first-class disaster on your hands. I know you boys thought this thing would work out and you would be able to whip the Republicans in line to fall in behind Mitt (I assume you are all males but if there is a female in the establishment, I apologize.) Not going too good, is it fellows?

It's been a terrible time to be a Republican. There have been many moments during this process that have caused me great joy. Certainly the events of Thursday, ending with the CNN debate, and even the Fox debate Monday night, have helped ease the pain of my beloved Tigers' and Saints' recent defeats.

I mean, most people thought it was kind of a watermark when your Tea Party gang booed the golden rule. You know, I've spent some time in Philly and they have always thought they were pretty radical because they actually booed Santa Claus and Willie Mays. Philly, I've got news for you -- you ain't got nothing on South Carolina Republicans. They just aren't buying any of that do-unto-others garbage.

I actually thought my favorite moment of this delightful process was when one of your eight front-runners, Herm Cain, (as Sarah Palin calls him) actually ran an ad with his campaign manager endorsing him. (Rove, why didn't you think of that in 2000? Imagine the headline: "Rove endorses Bush.")

The climax of that delicious ad is when he actually takes a drag on a cigarette. But my favorite thing about Herm's campaign manager is that he is the only person in the history of the world that was actually barred from political consulting. Let me tell you, I've been in this business for quite a while and I've never known of anyone other than Mark Block to be suspended from practicing this profession.

At any rate, let's talk a minute about Mitt. He was your guy -- he was methodical, meticulous, married once. He has completely blown himself up over an issue that everyone knew was coming. Have you had a chance to look at John McCain's research operation on Mitt? Wow. And let me assure you, that thing has been supplemented, expanded, and annotated. God only knows about the Obama people -- they've got a billion dollars! And how about my friends over at American Bridge (the Democrat-leaning political action committee)? Clearly Mitt is merely in the beginning of this tax-return, financial-disclosure, Cayman Island (and God only knows what else) fiasco.

Your new front-runner is one of your old front runners, Newt Gingrich. I would like to take a moment to revel: I cannot personally tell you how pleased I am to see old Newt rise to the top after listening to all of your nauseating, sickening lectures on the evils of government and the importance of family values.

Now, you guys have to deal with a $1.6 million Freddie Mac consultant (who says he wasn't a lobbyist) who has been married three times. Hope you, at least, enjoy the Super Bowl. It could be your last hurrah for a while.

PS -- As my former boss once said, I feel your pain. That's why I didn't mention Rick Perry.
:lmao:

Oh this is just sour grapes.  Nelms nor Ammons are going anywhere.   Nelms is an excellent helmsman (sounds good doesn't it) and will be here until he want to leave.   Just some Fayetteville Street grumbling which has graced each Chancellor at NCCU.  Pay this no mind atoll. Just a gaggle of complainers who are ubiquitous to Durham.    No problem.   Go Eagles, Go Nelms

:no:
Well I understand, but there are those who have issues which seem to be deeply rooted and you wonder  "what goes here'?   It isn't about the Champions or the sexual orientation of the son, which should not matter anyway but his death and the alleviation of cultures that lead to that end.   This is very personal and none of us have the right to gloat but all need to see the bigger picture here.  Some of the post are just out there.  I wouldn't go there with him or them.

General Discussion Forum / Re: FAMU Parents Warned Dr. Ammons...
« on: January 10, 2012, 11:18:34 PM »
Students signed statements not to haze and did it anyway.  How do you police that at any University with groups, orders, fraternal, band, choir, drama that have organized through the years of a schools existence.  How many Presidents, Chancellors, CEO of Universities in this country have been held accountable for the death of Football, Basketball,Fraternity pledging, homecoming barn fire incidents and drinking binges on any campus has been asked to step down?   These actions replete with political overtures in the requested dispensation to the Board of Trustees (thank god they had the balls to see through that charade) was merely a disquise of bigger issues in higher education in that state relative to the strong leadership at FAMU and its continued growth.   Had this happened at FSU or UF an investigation would have been assured but  devoid of calls for the resignation of campus leadership. I haven't seen it happen in NC with all the stuff that has occured at NCSU,  UNC, ECU or NCA&T and NCCU.  We all have had issues but it didn"t get that swollen.  We all need to put some ICE on this one to bring the swelling down ourselves.

Cholly, some on this board obviously have a hard on about the FAMU band and anything, or way to portrait a negative slant, will be done.   Let it go since this tragedy is his stump to stand on.  Its obvious.

Cholly, some of the questions directed to you are so out there, I would not attempt to reply. There is an investigation going on and obviously one would not come to Onnidan with evidence.  Hopefully everything will continue under wraps until the trial.

No, Halle Berry ain't got nothing on these mama jammas who will quickly show her the exit for disturbing their beau's eyes candy.  He's in heaven with those two and they know what he likes.   " BIGONES"

As stated I never like her anyway and probably never Will!

FSU, you don't think it would matter to her, do you? :lmao:

Bro would throw bricks at Halle B, or J LO,  to get their boney  whew!!!!!!! behinds out of the way!  They would have to move over for dem dere fine thangs.

They were on the cover of Architectural Digest magazine which featured their new home in California in late 2011.  Beautiful home with custom made furnishings etc.  Excellent article.    You never know if it is true or not but check out the August 2011 issue on line.  I read somewhere that he stated divorce was not an option is their marriage.   Hope its not true.

1707
 Those are women my uncle would spot in a crowd and say "boys look at those fine things over there".  We would look at who we thought he was speaking about and notice his eyes we going in the opposite direction.  He was tall and slim but liked them with meat on the bone.  In his words, " I loves me some  big breasted thick womens".   He'd get that look on his face and a big genuine grin.  Uncle was in heaven on earth.  Uncle would be envious of that guy.   there is a persimmon on the tree for everybody.   

1708
The spelling and tense on this board for some is a challenge or by the challenged. :tiptoe: :lol:

1709
A level headed commentary!! :nod:
Thanks for an intelligent reply to this tragic happening.  The President need not be thrown under the train so someone can use this to get elected or ink. Thank God. Dr Ammons did something in  light of all the negativity, talk and innuendos repleting the air waves and printed media.  He was presidential and what else could he have done?.  It just a no win situation for all involved in satisfying a hungry "rumor hungry public"
