glitch alert!

Strange things happening with comments on the blog today, some of you good people are having your words dumped in the spam folder alongside assorted nutjobs, like the lady from Texas who keeps trying to remind us that the President is black. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ I didn’t know that, did you?

Hopefully this is just temporary oddness, maybe Sundays do strange things to WordPress?

So, fear not – if your comments don’t appear immediately, I’ll rescue them from that spam folder.

PS Still stunned to learn that the President is black. Why on earth didn’t any of you tell me? ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    Wasn’t there a cartoon after OBL’s demise, where one character asked the other how he liked President Obama now, pretty tough, right? And the other (tea party) character said, “He’s still black, ain’t he?” (heavy paraphrasing)

    Thanks for monitoring the comments. The trolls take away any chance of reasonable consversation with nothing but vile, negative comments. They have made HP unreadable.

    Umm, the nut job from Texas cannot understand why so many here and abroad respect, admire , support and voted for PBO. Surely, to do so we must not know he is black and therefore unworthy of this regard. She considers it her duty as a citizen to alert everyone to the fact that he is black because we must have missed it!
    Sheesh! unbelieveable that someone would take so much of her time to do this, especially on a site that is dedicated to the success of PBO and our nation.
    I will not paint the people of Texas with a broad brush, but there is a quote from Lonesome Dove about many people from there (that I will not quote here) that fits this person and Rick Perry and the other unreconstructed folks who have similar attitudes.
    The good news is that even though they and others (republican govs.) are fighting to drag us back to the dark ages, they will not be successful because the rest of us have moved on.

    OMG! He’s blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack? And he’s the President of the United States? Leader of the free world? How did that happen?

    • June 12, 2011 at 3:27 pm

      I actually don’t believe it Proud, there’s no way he could be black. Maybe we should contact the White House and ask them to confirm this outrageous smear is untrue?

    Chips, can I just say you are too cute? The cat photo and title are so funny. Thanks for keeping our space troll free.

    Here’s some food for thought for the person from TX who is so worried about the President’s skin color, the governor of that state has been complaining about federal assistance for the wildfires, FEMA has given the state of TX 25 grants which cover 75% of the cost of fighting the fires, where would TX be if FEMA was once again being run by a political crony instead of a competent individual with experience in emergency management? http://wildfiretoday.com/2011/05/05/texas-has-received-25-fema-grants-for-fires-this-year/ Golly gee was just wonderin’.

    Wow, talk of some hateful creature trying to lump the largest majority of Americans together by taking it upon herself to diagnose them as being color blind as in that, they have trouble differentiating color thus not seeing/knowing that Potus was/ is black when they cast their ballot for them? Hateful racist Biatch.

      They don’t count his mother unless they are attacking her.

    • June 12, 2011 at 3:50 pm

      Kasai, she’s a loathsome piece of hate-filled racist shit – the fact that she has an even bigger problem with Michelle says it all. But we know they’re out there, **** them all, I hope they drown in their bitterness.

    I have a friend who is color blind and sees brown the same as green. Ergo one must conclude our president is not really black, he’s green. And we all know (cue the Kermit music) ‘It’s not easy being green’

    It’s not just the horrible Tx. lady who is racist. I just read about FOX Business host, Eric Bolling, who, when he saw President Obama meeting with the president of Gabon, noted that Obama loves hosting black “hoodlums” at the White House. Unbelievable.

      Some believe Bolling is auditioning to replace Beck. So he will say anything to shock his audience.

    “Why on earth didnโ€™t any of you tell me? ” Uh, and there’s more: The First Lady of the United States of America is from – wait for it – the South Side of Chicago. (And she’s black.) And she’s gorgeous. And she’s smart. And she’s capable. And she works harder than any other first lady in recent memory. Hope it’s not too much more of a shock.

    On a serious note, I appreciate them both so much and am so caught up in being grateful for their achievements and how hard they are both working for us that I forget how much they symbolize. And then I remember again and am happy all over again just for the fact that he is the President and she is the First Lady. I am old enough to remember looking, as a child, at the pictures in Life magazine of the fire hoses blasting at black civil rights marchers and not being quite able to comprehend the ugliness. I have to tell you that as an adult, I still find it hard to understand the ugliness of the lady from Texas and her ilk.

    Thank you once again, Chipsticks, for scraping the garbage for us.

    The President is black? Well…that’s something I hadn’t noticed before. What to do? What to do?…………the lady from Texas pointing out relevant facts that had up to now escaped my notice. Will it change my vote in 2012?

    Stay tuned………….
