The Messiah Float Leads German Parade

From Duesseldorf Germany... feel free to write your own caption... btw that's 'Europe' hanging onto Obama's dress, no joke.

The Duesseldorf Carnival parade in 2005

The same Parade in Duesseldorf featured this float in 2004

And this gem in 2003.

Gee, all we had to do was roll over and convert to socialism and the entire socialist world is at our feet!

Hmmm, I wonder why they didn't make a float with Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky in bed together while Bin Laden is planning the 9-11 attacks from under the bed?

Oh come on...those are pretty funny. And yes I think the one with Obama is creepy...funny, but creepy.

funny to a lefty!

What about the one with Obama and Osama together cutting the head off of the statue of Liberty?

Would that one be funny too?

Obama as Superman saving Europe is worse than creepy.

There are tons of things that you think are funny that would not be funny to liberals Red. These are not that bad and yes maybe I see it that way because I'm a liberal, but so be it.

Isn’t interest how whenever I am taking on liberals, the Obama administration, or Democrats in general I get lots of “atta boy’s” and “great work” from you, but as soon as I criticize a conservative or in this case, try to see the humor in all of the floats and the general idiocy of people, I get your ire. Funny how that works.

when you say "funny"... do you mean ha-ha funny or the other kind?

Not sure what you're implying but I don't think it's unusual at all dave.. I don't pretend to be Switzerland.
I am biased.
Unlike the media I admit my bias.. you lean to the left .. but don't seem to want to admit or own your bias...
Funny how that works.

A) I’m pretty grumpy this morning, so that is probably tainting the tone of my responses. For that I apologize.

B) When have I ever claimed to be impartial? Yes I do my best to be fair-minded and to give EVERYONE the benefit of the doubt (something that most don’t ever seem to do), but right on the top of my blog it says “A slightly left of center look at politics, religion, and pop-culture from the heartland.” At that point I think that I have pointed out where I am coming from. As you have pointed out in the past (very well I might add), we all have our biases, that is part of being human. I admit it. You admit it. We all know it. I try though to look part it as much as I can to be fair-minded to all stories and situations. Yes I fail and lord knows I am no better than anyone, but for Pete’s sake, at least I try.

C) Have you ever noticed that you and I seem to be going over the same ground all of the time? It seems like a lot of our discussions end up being about the same things we have debated for a few years now. I’m not complaining because I enjoy it (even when things you type induce chest pains because the irk me so much), I just noticed it today while responding to various posts.

D) How was your weekend?

lol... well dave it's really the same argument that has been going on in this country since the 60's.

Socialism and communism vs Capitalism and the free market.

Throw in a War on the side from Islamic Fascists who also wish to destroy the free market system and capitalism.. and an attack on the 1st amendment along with an attack on the 2nd amendment and the discussion on abortion validity and you got yourself a real discussion for the ages my friend.

I look forward to many many years of debating these things with you.. I do enjoy your comments and thoughts and even your lame attempts to corral me. lol

My lame attempts to corral you? What’s the supposed to mean?

Also at what point have I EVER advocated for the support of communism? That is asinine Red.

The debate I was referring to is the one about treating others with respect and trying to clean up the civil discourse in this country. I would like to think that you actually did know what I was talking about and decided to go off with a half cocked response anyway.

Dave... dave... dave, easy big fella', I didn't say or imply or think that you defended communism. Not for a second.

But since you brought it up, I do think you (like many Americans right now) are in the mode of saying that a little socialism might not be bad.

And the comment about lame attempts and corralling me was just a lighthearted comment man, do you or do you not try to keep me in line, herd me toward the middle, we have had this discussion about your attempts to "tone down" my discourse right?
I've got the right dave here... Oklahoma Lefty...yes?

All I was saying is that YES we are having the same argument on many of the same issues on more than one occasion and that is no surprise considering those issues have been argued for 50 years or more and should be argued for another 500 or more.

C'mon man lighten up.

Fair enough my friend.

I'm a little distracted at the moment anyway...I'm playing with my new, not-crappy, MP3 player. :o)

Blogger Red S Tater said...

Did you get that new tricked out MP3 player from Obama's stimulus bill?

How do I get mine or are they only for people who voted for Obama?

just digging at ya dave... just kidding.
