Are these people really trying to be patriotic by claiming that Obama is not a citizen? Are they just opposed to his politics or maybe it’s his middle name or the color of his skin? I’ve been around a while and have seen a lot of racism in my life, and this looks like racism to me. Of course Rush and our friends at Fox are all over this and are trying to stir the pot even more.

Kartman, I can't get youtube @ work so I couldn't follow all the links (I saw the article on Limbaugh). Where is the Fox connection? Which show / hosts are still raising a big ruckus about this? I watch Fox news quite a bit and I haven't heard any of this mentioned since the election.

To answer your question, only idiots still consider this an issue. Probably the same idiots that think 911 was an inside job. The downfall of any conspiracy theory is that it assumes a large group of people can / would keep a secret. Really, if somebody could prove Obama wasn't a citizen, don't you think that would come out? Same with 911. Same with the illuminati (sp) secretly running the world. Same with every other conspiracy theory.

Now in the case of Lindbaugh, I think he's just pandering to his audience. He is an "entertainer" after all. Not much different from what Olbermann does.

I’m not sure if Fox is making a big deal about it but the tone of the piece I saw they other day gave me the impression that they were feeding the fire. Honestly, I can’t watch Fox or MSNBC for more than an hour without getting pissed off. I try to stick with CNN, but flip over to the other 2 during commercial breaks. Olbermann and Maddow on MSNBC annoy me just as much as Hannity and O’Reilly on Fox, both sides are little too far extreme in their views and too in your face about those views for my tastes.

The illuminati are definitely running the world though:biggrin:

:lol: I'm not going.

My friend from VA is, though. (Actually, he's my ex-bf.) He'll be staying with us then going up to Dallas.

Actually, since being in Houston I haven't found too many geeks like me. They mostly just drink and eat here.

I miss NOVAG and WGA.

D'oh! Blocked at work. What is it?

(Illuminati was never one of my favs, though, I enjoyed playing it.)

The trailer for Assassins Creed II, which is supposed to come out in November. I don’t think they called them Illuminati though, I think they used the term “Templar”.

Ever watch Bones? There was a season where they touched on that.

It's all about the Gormagog.

I really preferred the "darker" tone of past Bones seasons. They seem to be playing up the sexual tension and romantic angle here lately, IMO.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
