    I'll be voting out. In my short life on this earth I''ve never liked the idea of us being in the EU and I hope this will be the chance to get out.

    It appears you are one of the people voting for Brexit who actually knew what the EU is, if THIS article is any indication. I've been interested in seeing what my friends here, from that part of the world, have been thinking on the issue.

    [INDENT] The Gold Urinal

    Before Obama was elected President he went to see Bill and Hillary for some campaign advice, at their spacious home.

    After drinking several glasses of iced tea, he asked Bill Clinton if he could use his personal bathroom.

    When he entered Clinton's private toilet, he was astonished to see that Clinton had a solid gold urinal! Wow!

    That afternoon, Obama told his wife, Michelle, about the urinal. "Just think,' he said, 'when I am President, I too could have a gold urinal.

    But I wouldn't have something so self-indulgent!"

    Later, when Michelle had lunch with Hillary, she told Hillary how impressed Obama had been at his discovery of the fact that, in his private bathroom, . . . . . . Bill had a gold urinal.

    That evening, when Bill and Hillary were getting ready for bed, Hillary smiled and said to Bill:

    "I found out who pissed in your saxophone."



    most likely the majority of what's in that thread is likely to rankle somebody

    Hey Sue darlin',
    That's the main reason I initiated the thread. :wink_smile::jump::laugh::laugh::laugh:
    Stumpy, AKA Jim, AKA The Rankler

    And Jim, darlin', a scathingly brilliant idea that was! It allows those who enjoy such 'discussion' to partake, and those who don't to easily avoid it!

    Are you enjoying the news reports this morning, after the numerous primary elections?
    :biggrin: I am . . .

    Mrs. C :angel1:


    I know for an absolute fact that you and Moonshine Sally are not alone in your political views among the members here at What brought us all together here is John Wayne. As you might imagine, many folks here are conservative, but as others have said, that can't stop us from being friends.

    I'm sure you've heard that old saying about never discussing politics or religion (or at least being willing to withstand the potential consequences :wink_smile:). There are some friends of mine whose views are 180º from mine, so we remain friends on our common ground, and share our political (or religious) views with different, like-minded companions.

    That's why we ask that generally, folks restrict political discussion to the Politics thread, so that those who have NO interest in such discussions can easily avoid them (and quite honestly, most likely the majority of what's in that thread is likely to rankle somebody). It's been a problem in the past. Yeah . . . and will probably crop up in the future. And occasionally, it crops up in a stray thread here or there.

    We'd like to think that all of us could sit around the campfire and enjoy each other's company based on our similar likes and dislikes, and leave the rest behind while we're together.

    Anyway, that's just how I see it!


    Mrs. C :angel1: (aka Sue)

    Just a reminder to our members - we have a "Politics" thread so those who find politics fascinating have a place to engage with others of like mind (or those who are open to the lively conversation that politics can lead to).

    Out of respect for those members who are here for John Wayne, Westerns, old movies and such, but have NO interest in politics, we ask that you keep all political comments and 'contributions' in this thread.

    I know there are some who consider it 'censorship' to ask that you keep politics in the Politics thread, but there are some forums that strictly forbid political discussion of any kind, anywhere.

    Thanks for your understanding!!

    Mexico is angry!

    The shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from Sonora don't like it.
    Can you believe the nerve of these people? It's almost funny.

    State of Sonora is angry at influx of Mexicans into Mexico .

    Nine state legislators from the Mexican state of Sonora traveled to Tucson
    to complain about Arizona 's new crackdown on illegals from Mexico .

    It seems that many Mexican illegals are now returning to their hometowns and
    the officials in the Sonora state government are ticked off about it.

    A delegation of nine stat e legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday
    to say Arizona 's new illegal alien sanctions law will have a
    devastating effect on the Mexican state.

    At a news conference,
    the legislators said Sonora - Arizona 's southern neighbor, made up of
    mostly small towns - cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools it
    will face as illegal Mexican workers here return to their hometowns without
    jobs or money.

    The law punishes individuals who don't have valid legal documents to live
    and work in the United States .

    The Mexican
    legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their
    hometowns, placing a burden on the ir state government.

    'How can they pass a law like this?' asked Mexican Rep. Leticia
    Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales .

    'There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or
    relative working in Arizona ,' she said, speaking only in Spanish.

    ' Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems it will face
    as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and sending money to their
    families return to hometowns in Sonora without jobs,' she said. 'We are one
    family, socially and economically,' she said of the people of Sonora and
    Arizona .


    The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico , and its
    taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico 's citizens.

    It's time for the Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop
    parasitically feeding off of the United States and to start taking care of
    its/their own needs.

    Too bad all the U.S. states don't pass a law just like Arizona or better yet
    the federal government actually enforce our Immigration Laws. Maybe that's the
    answer, since our own Congress will not do anything!

    New Immigration Laws:
    Read to the bottom or you will miss the message...

    1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.
    * * * * * * * *
    2. All ballots will be in this nation's language.

    * * * * * * * *
    3.. All government business will be conducted in our language.
    * * * * * * * *
    4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are

    * * * * * * * *
    5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.
    * * * * * * * *
    6 Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food
    stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs. Any burden will
    be deported.

    * * * * * * * *
    7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least
    equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

    * * * * * * * *
    8. If foreigners come here and buy land... Options will be restricted.
    Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens
    naturally born into this country.

    * * * * * * * *
    9.. Foreigners may have no protests; no demonstrations, no waving of a
    foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his
    policies. These will lead to deportation.

    * * * * * * * *
    10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted
    &, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All
    assets will be taken from you.

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

    The above laws are current immigration laws ofMEXICO !!!

    These sound fine to me. NOW, how can we get these laws to be America 's immigration laws??



    The Alex Jones I was speaking of has a radio show called InfoWars, which is at this link. One of the most honest radio talk show hosts around today, IMHO.
