LOL I feel absolutely terrible about your gambling problem, Stackie.

It must be torture, right?

I'm not kidding, buddy, I feel awful! LOL

Have you got the shakes?

You poor thing.  Sad

How many more post should I expect from you making more lame excuses because you're so ignorant?

If misspell enough words maybe you'll catch up to our favorite top ten poster.

      LOL, those weren't typos, Stackie boy, those are words that only you know the definition of.

      And maybe your family.

      Mind telling everybody what they mean?

        Do you have union thug teachers in Kentucky?

        Are their foreheads noticeably sloped?

          That's 1 more post added to your post count. I know you can do it!

          I was just kidding but you really take this stuff serious. You ought to sit back and read some of stuff your posted. Obama beat McCain by 10 million votes so Romney has to convince 5 million voters to change their minds and I know you're not one of them. Do you really believe what you're posting will convince Obama voters to change their mind in this election?

              You're the one who put the political stuff out there to influence people.

                I just responded to it and you flipped out.

                The Internet poker bill is non-partisan, sponsored by members of both parties, but because of the language in the platform, the Poker Players Alliance believes it might become difficult to pass. By not being mentioned in the other platform, it may make it even more difficult to pass. I don't believe the decision on the Wire Act that opened the door for online lottery wagering was politically motivated because states controlled by both parties can benefit. I don't even know if it is possible to overturn that decision without another Congressional Act.

                As for influencing voters, posting the platform plank language can't possibly influence anyone voting against Obama in 2008 and with all the stuff going on in the country and in the world, I can't see how it would influence any intelligent undecided voters if there really are any undecided voters left.

                  It wouldn't influence anyone who knows anything about politics or Platforms but let's be honest. 99.9% of the Democrat Base doesn't know anything about anything. They base all their decisions on sound bytes, rumors, innuendoes, comedians, Hollywood and comedy skits on Saturday Night Live and maybe even stuff you say if they believe you and think you know what you're talking about.

                  Now I don't think for a second that you believe that plank means anything (and it doesn't) but it sure seemed like you wanted others to think it did the way you kept repeating it and quoting it and posting links to it.

                  People need to hear both sides to make an intelligent decision.

                    "People need to hear both sides to make an intelligent decision."

                    Let's not forget what one person calls an intelligent decision, somebody else will call it stupid. Sometimes it's the timing of the decision and later in retrospect the person making that decision will say it wasn't a very intelligent thing to do. I'll bet George H. W. Bush wishes he never said "Read my lips, no new taxes".

                    Intelligent decisions on voting were easy to see in the Soviet Union and in Eastern Block countries because the winners always had 100% of the vote. In the U.S. voting is done in private, nobody can force anyone to vote one way or the other, and the winners average about 55% of the vote. It all comes down to what each individual believes is an intelligent decision and you'll never see 100% of the voters making the same decision.

                    "Now I don't think for a second that you believe that plank means anything (and it doesn't)"

                    We both agreed it's meaningless and I even elaborated why. Why did you believe such a trivial issue would sway anyone even if I posted it 1000 times?

                        Why did you feel the need to post it so many times if you didn't think it would sway anyone?

                        Wasn't Clinton found not guilty by a Republican Senator from Tennessee?

                        I felt the need to explain it because someone kept saying it was meaningless. It certainly was meaningful to someone because the Republicans put it in their Platform.

                          If something is meaningless, isn't it a little ridiculous to keep explaining it?

                          And you weren't explaining anything anyway because there's nothing to explain.

                          You just kept repeating yourself.

                          I didn't see MADDOG post any anti-Democrat stuff in the Birthday Thread.

                          Why, did he say something you disagree with and you want him banned too?

                            I posted the facts and though you called the facts meaningless, it doesn't change the fact the Republican wants to ban all forms of Internet gambling. And for who knows how many times I've posted the same fact, I still doubt it will change the mind of any voters.

                            People change their minds when one candidate calls 47% of Americans victims because they pay no taxes.

                            No and no.

                            Part of my five point plan is to allow the top 3% of posters to continue posting at the same rate.
