This forum has a long history, by interent standards anyway-unfortunately it has been abandoned for far too long due to real life circumstances knocking the heck out of what had been my very real desire to keep this board alive and well forever so that all of us could meet here and communicate with each other everyday.

I'm not sure that a forum like this is even needed nowadays since the advent of facebook, etc...but I hope that this once thriving BB does bring some of us back together again and that maybe some new folks will join us as well!

Bush visit to Iraq.

George W. Bush was bombarded with shoes that were thrown at him by a few Iraqi protesters.

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.

I, personally, would not condone that sort of conduct toward our president but I'm grateful that it wasn't a grenade.

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.

It was ONE individual he threw his own shoes size 10. There was plenty of time to dodge and Bush did . Supposedly the guy was protesting iraqi people being killed. But those people are being killed by ISLAMIC terrorists. Just a couple of days before 55 people were murdered by terrorists in Kirkuk. Cowardley terrorists. MURDERED.i didnt see or hear Grant saying anything against the murder of innocent people who are only trying to live their lives None of you here ever have and never will do that. You guys like innocent people being murdered.

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.

I heard that the guy that did it, was protesting the 12 Billion Dollars worth of shoes that the US Tax payers sent to Iraq, Because they were all the wrong size and they really wanted "Chuck Taylor All Stars by Converse"!

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.

Jinx you did make the statement " bull**** freedom of speech" . You no doubt meant that to mean that only you and the people here will have any rights in this country in a few days when the ONE seizes power and Jack B gets his Concentration Camps and he wasnt kidding either. Mo doubt he does imagine himself a reincarnation OF Henrich Himmler. Head of the SS in germany. But i am sure the ONE will not trust him with his SS. The one will keep control of that to himself.

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.

I don't condone this action mainly becasue it could have been a grenade etc.

My question is where were the CIA/FBI?Security which protects our President after the first shoe was thrown? Someone's head should fall for not jumping right in a pretecting the President.

As much as I do not like Bush, I would never want to see anything happen to him.

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.


You need to hold your Skirt down. Your Ignorance is showing again.

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.

Cant stand behind your own statements can you jinxie. when i say something i acknowledge my statements .Y ou are like the great SHINY ONE . Never have to back up any statements you make. Allah is protecting you as he does the ONE. Were you in that same holy well that allah put hussien inn 1500 years ago as the twelve immam.

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.


On several other post you have made assertions about Obama and the intentions he has and when I have asked you for direct evidence to support your claim you go mute.

Are you going to "back up" your statements or not?

John R...

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.

A repost of the statement in question.
Where Duane, lectured Maggie on a Personal attack on him. I'll even supply the link.

I rest my case.
Below is My post Duane is CRYING about.

Now that's a good one.

Duane Lecturing someone on "Personal Attacks".

Well,,at least Maggie didn't disguise this so called "Personal Attack" with the "Freedom Of Speech" Bull Sh-it phoney line Duane uses all the time.

What a Joke!

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.

I also agree with JohnRs post.

So Duane, Can you back up any of your silly accusations you have been making, or are you going to just continue to MAKE UP LIES and Fairy Tales and post them with no proof and then continue to Hide behind your, "My Freedom of Speech", Statement??

I ask the same question:
Are you going to "back up" your statements or not?

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.

john r in front of me i have two pages of the One's record on the 2nd ammendment . He wants to deny the american people the right of self defense. These facts come from the NRA. Now i know that in your world as in the Ones world. Americans have no right to defend themselves against terrorosm. It is not politically correct. Now if he destests the 2nd ammendment in real life why would he not destest the ist ammendment the third ammendment and every thing else American.

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.

Just a little from
On NRA..

A National Rifle Association advertising campaign distorts Obama's position on gun control beyond recognition.

The NRA is circulating printed material and running TV ads making unsubstantiated claims that Obama plans to ban use of firearms for home defense, ban possession and manufacture of handguns, close 90 percent of gun shops and ban hunting ammunition.

Much of what the NRA passes off as Obama's "10 Point Plan to 'Change' the Second Amendment" is actually contrary to what he has said throughout his campaign: that he "respects the constitutional rights of Americans to bear arms" and "will protect the rights of hunters and other law-abiding Americans to purchase, own, transport, and use guns."

The NRA, however, simply dismisses Obama's stated position as "rhetoric" and substitutes its own interpretation of his record as a secret "plan." Said an NRA spokesman: "We believe our facts."

Perhaps so, but believing something doesn't make it so. And we find the NRA has cherry-picked, twisted and misrepresented Obama's record to come up with a bogus "plan."


BTW---In keeping with the subject of the first post on this thread, don't you think that we should be talking about the "Banning of Shoes?"

Re: Bush visit to Iraq.

Drano. My point was that Obama went to Berlin and was cheered. And Bush went to Iraq and had shoes thrown at him. Hail to the Chief.
