I'd like to have me a couple of them raffle tickets but I never travel to blue states unless I have to. They have too many people that look like that guy in the black shirt with the necklace in the picture.  I don't usually have too much to talk about with people who look like that. I would imagine that's what most men in Oregon look like. The guy in the red and black shirt looks kinda like me in my younger days before  wayward, lustful, wanton, insatiable wimmins and oceans of whiskey took their toll. He'd fit right in here in Tennessee (in the mountains and backwoods anyway).

        Yes sully, as I've cautioned before, getting your head stuck in a pickle jar is not a good way to go.

            Did you ever consider that those freaks came from California? I'll tell you one thing about Oregon men you don't know-  they can hold their liquior and keep their wives.

            You have not lived until you pulled green chain or went over the Columbia River Bar, Ridge.

            I think I’ll pick up a few tickies for those of you Turkeywho are not bold enough to venture into the west territory with your Kansas City carpetbags. Heck, even Sar-a comes down here to see her inlaws and outlaws, and you can't get much more liberal than her daughter,... dancing with the starz for Pete's sake! Sounds like she's like the town moose*. I can't wait to see the momma griz eat the calf.    Mauling: It's all part of the entertainment,....sensation over substance.

            You gotta be tough to live out west. Alaska too, but you gotta be smart to hold an elected office and serve more than a wink and a smile. Ever wonder why Palin is getting all the rope she needs to hang herself and the Parties with? This is a two term presidency.

              Yeah, I ambled on down there (SC) and got me a couple raffle tickets too. Forgot to get the Sourwood Honey when I went thru NC though, dagnab it. Took the dirt road over the mountains through Pisgah back into Tennessee. That was kinda fun. Gets a little hairy meeting somebody going the other way on that narrow road though.

                Not "bold enough to venture into west territory"? You mean the land of Courtney Love and the "tough guys" dressed in black who break all the windows in department stores downtown to show how "tough" they are?

                LOL, are you jokin' or smokin'?

                Brace yourself, that ain't your daddy's Washington. Sorry, but greasy-headed Grungies singing about dope and whining about the police doesn't exactly conjur up romantic memories of the old wild west for me.

                That area was settled by tough men but over the years the  "sensitive people" Hippy followed and eventually outnumbered them and tragically it became a solidly blue state.

                It's a crying shame to see the kind of pukes who inherited that area from the pioneers who settled it. A crying shame. They should just merge WA and OR together and call it North California or maybe something more earth friendly like "Happy Tree State" or "Tofu Land" or "Steamed Veggieville".

                -------------------

                This is a "two term Presidency"?

                You sir, (or is it ma'am?) are truly delusional.

                We are on the cusp of witnessing an historically significant political pounding. A virtual bloodbath in a political sense. A rout. And you're talking about a 2nd term? You'd be wise to seek your information somewhere other than Moveon or Huffington or any of the other leftwing hate blogs funded by your hero, Billionaire George Soros.

                And this movement is merely seminal. 2nd term? LOL, dream on, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

                BTW, I hear your buddy Harry Reid could use a little help in Nevada. He might have trouble getting the illegal aliens to the polls and showing them who to vote for. Do you know how to drive a bus? Bi-lingual is a plus. Where the hell is ACORN when you need them?
