Need a sit down...

Ran a mile in 7.51 minutes.

Now, can anyone explain to me how these kinds of ...folks...can exist in the world? This is a current dialouge going on at a friend's blog. It's frightening:



(From Cameron)
The Japanese sure do seem to LOVE President Obama!

Look what they have created now: Obama-maki zushi.

obama-makizushi

You take a square of nori (seaweed, lay down rice, insert various meats, fish, vegetables, roll it all up into a big cylinder, and cut off slices. I guess they used brown rice...

Can you imagine the minds of the people to have thought up how to lay this all out so that when cut, you have the face of Barack Obama?

For anyone who thinks Obama is HAWT, now is your chance to dive right in and take a big bite!

I love you!

Cam

P.S. Not for the carbohydrate-weak-at-heart.

If the Japs love Obama so much......we'll gladly get rid of him, and they can have him.

I'll have to borrow this for my Bento blog. Thank you!

Bikn4god - You say "we"... who do you mean? Certainly not the USA because the USA ELECTED Obama. Do you perhaps mean "I'll gladly get rid of him"? If that is the case, please tell me (us) what it is that you personally don't like about his policies, even though you haven't given him enough time to try out his policies on the American economy which has pretty much collapsed, thanks in a big part to the Republican government's policies over the past eight years. Do you think it would have been prudent to elect the McCain/Palin party? If so, please state your personal reasons and your own perceptions as to why you personally think they could have done a better job.

Oh, and there is one rule here: Please RESPECT discussion with other people without resorting to any name calling, or any insulting what so ever during your debate with the numerous folk who will likely come to engage you in your discussion.

I'm just curious, but did you perchance miss two "i"s in your name?

Lyvvie - Go for it! I love you!

Personally, I have no use for any politicians, especially a Socialist like Obama. McCain would have been the lesser of the two evils, but I have no confidence in him either. The American people may have "elected" him, but that doesn't mean they're excused from being duped. He has been in office for almost 5 weeks, and his polls already dropped 10 pts. He has back peddled on his campaign promises, installed criminals to cabinet positions, and the damage will continue. I don't feel sorry for those who voted for him, because they will reap what they have sown. Unfortunately, those who did not vote for him will be sucked up along in the vacuum.

As for my name....I did not forget the "i". It is, what it is.

I'll tell you...He's a Socialist who is questionably eligible to hold the office and further in bed as it were with a more nefarious collection of criminals and enemies of OUR Nation than you'd be hard pressed to find. The infatuation by foreign countries and expatriates of OUR Nation speaks for itself...

Amen! He's a Chicago criminal thug, and a Socialist-Communist. And America is already getting a rotten taste in their mouths, and it's only been 5 weeks.

You say Americans "elected" Obama. Germans elected Hitler too.
cam wrote today at 3:07 AM
When you say "socialist", would you please elaborate? I say this because in the earlier years, the American government sadly linked "socialism" with "communism", and then convinced everyone that "communism" was the antithesis to "freedom" which is what America tried to make itself to stand for. Unfortunately, that mistaken understanding still holds true in many American conservative minds, and again, unfortunately, it is false. But false truths are often the most difficult to remove from our minds as our egos never like to admit that they are wrong, and they will go to no ends to be "right", even if it leads to destruction of the vessel.

And now of course the republicans (I won't say "conservatives" because there are conservative people who follow the democratic platforms) have linked things like universal health care (Canada, UK, France, etc.) with "socialized medicine". They use this as a propaganda tool to dig into the egos of those who are still brainwashed to believe that "socialism is evil incarnate", and thus "socialized medicine", which works much better than the "rape and pillage medicine" system of the USA, is scorned as being "non-democratic" or "not of free will" because those people believe that government should have absolutely no say in the matter and that the market "will decide". Well, my friends, this market is messed up and it does not balance things properly, as Good Old Alan Greenspan has found out when his decades of policies based upon traditional economic THEORIES (= guesses) finally came together in what the entire world is calling an "unprecedented" economic disaster.

The republican policy messed up, and because the USA is the leading global power, they are taking everyone else down with them in an unprecedented "towering inferno", much like how the Twin Towers were entirely decimated.

"Let the rich party and the poor and disappearing middle class suffer" doesn't cut it Mr. Skull and Mr. Baghead. Unless you want to go and live alone on a deserted island you have the honour and duty as a member of society to support and serve everyone else. "Every man, woman and child for themselves" leads to exactly that: anarchy. And unless you are an anarchist, I highly doubt you would want people running helter skelter through your homes raping and pillaging your wives and children. An extreme example perhaps, but we must seriously all support one another because one day you two, just like me, will be too old and invalid to support ourselves. Do you want to be chucked into the trash bin?

By the way, I assume it's somewhere in the late late night / early morning for you guys... don't you think you might have something better to do than comment on this blog about FOOD? Like... SLEEP perhaps?

Oh, when I say ego, I don't mean "egotistical" in that sense. I mean it from the psychological perspective, the ego.

Seems the folks in OUR nation share that infatuation, as was previously pointed out. Being an expat myself only meant I had to dig deeper, do research, to find all the information I could on all the candidates. I'm pretty sure a lot of Americans living in the USA didn't bother doing that, as proved by the whole fiasco of folks believing he was Muslim.

Questionably eligible? Are you sincere?

Why has he not released his original birth certificate? He was born in Kenya...All it would take is for him to authorize release of the document in question...He refuses and the courts dance around the issue...He is a charlatan and a fraud...As he will intimately be proven.

This country was not formed to be Socialist, Communist, nor a Democracy. It was formed to be a free Republic, with representatives elected by the people to work FOR the people. We, as American citizens do NOT work for the government.

Socialist systems do not work. Bolshevic Russian Socialists - Failed. German Socialists - Failed.

There's two examples right there.

We do not have "rape and pillage" medicine in the US. We have the best technology and health care in the entire world. World leaders have come to the United States from other countries to be treated, because their own health systems are inferior. The infestation of vermin lawyers, filing frivilous lawsuits against medical personnel and hospitals has driven health care costs through the roof, and not all have been able to afford insurance here. It's not a perfect system, but compared to socialist systems, mismanaged by govenments, it's pretty damned good. When we can get lawyers and politicians out of medicine, it would be more affordable to all. Unlike socialist countries, our hospitals don't turn away people due to inability to pay. They get health care anyway. Millions of people get treated in emergency rooms here who have no insurance.

My Canadian friend lost her father because the Canadian socialist health care system would not approve of him getting a heart transplant. They figured that he might not live past 5 years, so they didn't approve the surgery. He died before she could get to him. Nice system. Perhaps Mary would have loved to spend 5 more years with her Dad. But she won't now, will she?

You have alot of nerve referring to the Twin Towers. They were brought down by terrorists, not Americans, or even our government. No one here, not even jokingly, could be compared to those murderers. And if your system there is so good, then why is your economy affected?

Perhaps you'd better stay in Japan. ( God knows why. ) Americans will get fed up with this Socialist crap soon enough, and revolt. We're known for that. You can duck and hide in Tojo-land.

Amen! Damn sure is a "nanny state" mentality.
to the grave......the government will save us! All these Communists will get from me will be a bullet.

If he's not a Muslim, he might as well be. He's kissing the butts of terrorist nations worldwide.

He proved to be a "snake doctor" before he was elected. So far, he's put criminals into cabinet positions, and has proven to associate with the lowest form of political vermin you can think of. It's only because he promised the lame and lazy $1000 checks, that he got elected. And he renigged ( no pun intended ) on that promise!!

He's a slick talker, just like Adolph Hitler.


That's just out of control nuts, right? I mean, Cam makes a post about neat Japanese making an Obama sushi and these two wage in with the hate, lies, full blown racism and
twisted views. Sensitive much? Touchy...just a bit? Can McCain be proud of being the Champion to the Ignorant Rednecks?

Here's hoping the Change comes and they can eat crow. then again, they may already.

This kind of dialogue is all over the net. Ignorance seems to be the norm amongst most citizens.
A site I love for articles and commentary is www.informationclearinghouse.org
Unfortunately only a few read it. The rest are watching TV or playing video games.

jomamma said...

Nice sushi work, I'm going to drop it there. I'm still giving him the benefit of the doubt. I think those of us who live well within our means and pay our bills on time should receive a much larger reward than those who don't. But just like the last stimulus check, hubby and I don't need anything so we'll just put it in the savings and sit on it. That helps us but not the economy.

Lyvvie said...

I'm just amazed they never think to fact check. It's obvious they've read some mass-sent e-mail and believed every word without question. Why do rednecks not know of Snopes?? They can have a different opinion, by all means - but at least have an accurate one.

I tried reading ICH and find the writing difficult to read and hard to comprehend.

Roxrocks said...

Yes a redneck like that probably had some crow for breakfast. Oy!

Being that I am not an American, I can say with certainty that this person's ignorance is precisely the kind of thinking that has led the US into the current state they're in. The shoot 'em up rootin' tootin' gunslinging attitude is laughable to the rest of the world. That's just my opinion though. These people have been spoon fed Bushisms for the last eight years, anyone talking anything more than gibberish is going to seem "slick" and fancy. This guy is an asshat.

That Bento is wicked cool...you gonna make one?

Lyvvie said...

I would if I could. Maybe start small and do the smiling face. ;)

sideshow bob said...

These people never seem to have a problem when the "Socialist" fire department comes to put out the flames after they drop a frozen turkey into an over-filled deep fryer. (Check out YouTube if you haven't seen that before).

Or driving their Suburban Assault Vehicles along public streets, which are free for ANYONE to use, which smells like Communism to me.

Maja said...

Some people are just wankers!

Ree said...

Hey Lyvvie. I'm not even going to comment on the comments.

Oh, who am I kidding. Yes I am. Haters make me sick. Absolutely sick.

I am, however, going to say Congrats on the 7.51 minute mile. That is awesome!

Doug said...

If Obama were a socialist, excuse me Socialist, he'd nationalize the damn banks, thereby pulling our collective asses out of the fire. No, he's another corporate minion (at least vis a vis the big banks, he is) and refuses to nationalize. What did he say about not letting ideology dictate policy? He has bunches of economists telling him to nationalize and he won't nationalize. Grr.

tornwordo said...

Why do you make me shout at the screen on a Sunday morning lyvvie? Why? And why can't these people communicate without such meaningless catchphrases as "nanny-state", "terrorist nations" and my favorite "Chicago criminal thug".

Kind of funny though that it's a food blog.

Sylvana said...

Geez, even the food blogs are not immune from the insanity! When I get douche heads like that on my blog, I instruct everyone to ignore them and I delete all their comments. Now, if they have an intelligent, thought out comment - totally different story. I will debate forever.

I LOVE that Obama roll, but I have no stomach for such fine detail (except when drawing).
