Paul McCartney - A Beatle to Boycott - A True Bug, a Backbiter

  1. KFlippin profile image61
    KFlippinposted 8 years ago

    Paul McCartney - how sick, how sad, how unbelievable, his crappy slur to Bush and to Laura on his high night in the White House.   Not to mention Obama has all this time for entertainment right now? If it were Bush or any other Republican President he, or she, would be attacked like a hoard of biting, virus carrying mosquitos on the Louisiana coast, and Paul McCartney would keep his delicate arse well away from the action.

      well make that 18, cuz  Im one of those people who like to watch the degenerates.


      Listen -- A god mcartney is not -- neither is bush, neither is obama.


      and I do believe bush had plenty of time for sitting at his ranch and hiding from disasters while he was digging us into a hole of war and economic disaster.

      Is obama fixing it? maybe not. But it's hard to clean up such a big mess left behind.

      obviously youre one of those super right wing types. that's sad.

      The world is changing. constantly and there is no place in the big scheme of things for narrow minded idiots.

                    Randy - I will explain the obvious. She shot herself in the foot until she ran out of feet. First she accused me of being a government paid blogger sent to disrupt the hubs.  That got her banned from the forums.

                    She wrote a hub complaining that HP was in a conspiracy (with me presumabley) to suppress conservatives. I don't know if that had anything to do with her departure or not. But HP may have decided that if telling lies about me justified a ban from the forums, telling lies about HP deserved the big delete.

                Lastly, you speculated she left in a huff because she was disagreed with.  Yet, originally, here in this post, you speculate she was chased away.  Hmmmm.  That would be two very different scenarios, and you do seem to have a great interest in exploring Doogie's lame attempt to discredit me as an imposter.

      Oh, gee, I guess he sang Oh Michelle at the White House and the Happy Couple goo gooed and gaa gaaed at each other,  and then McCartney trashed George Bush as not even knowing how to find a library, all last night in a big Doo Doo at the White House -- among other slurs.  Don't recall McCartney slogging it out in Lousiana during Rita either, do recall Obama trashing Bush for being slow to respond to a flood that no one coud foresee, don't recall Obama being in LA for that disaster either -- just his criticism well after the fact.


      Boycott McCartney - I just may have a bumper sticker made with that.

        Bush deserves the critisicm he gets. He wasn't a good president. That is just a simple fact.

        I don't necessarily think Obama is a great president either, Im just saying it's pretty ridiculous to get all rowled up over some shit a former Beatle said.

        So paul mccartney doesn't like bush. Not many people do. He ruined our image with the rest of the world and caused a lot of chaos. Then he turned his back and never apologized for all the wrong he did.

        just a simple fact.

        I think this rabid "obama hatred" is just as asinine as the rabid bush hatred on the other side.

          And no, it's not ridiculous, I do love that word ridiculous, to get 'all rowled up' (that would be 'riled' I'm fairly sure) over Paul McCartney's party down, and more especially the Obama's party down, while a significant part of this country is in an oily crisis -- are you aware of the extent of that?  Perhaps not.

          And I would beg to differ in regard to 'not many people' like Bush, and that would be a grievous Liberal mistake that I sincerely hope continues to be made.

            We are a western civilization and people who are against western morals will always have a reason to attack.

            Maybe if our image was better, as in diplomatic relations, less people would feel compelled to attack us.

            The oil crisis isn't anyone's fault but the people who negated to fix their subpar materials (BP) and they will pay dearly for it if the republicans would stop intervening -- they support the big oil that is killing the area after all. wink

            Im not worried about our country. We're taken care of quite well. Funny how bush couldn't stop the attacks but the present administration has foiled several.

                Grew up in the south actually -- the deep south near the gulf. And this disaster with BP is very upsetting to me.

                But even I am not infantile enough to go and blame a line of presidents for some crazy crap that has nothing to do with them. I do think, however, its a good reason to stop pursuing offshore drilling. It's a no-brainer.

            Only a wingnut would take credit for what didn't happen - while not taking the blame for what DID happen.

            There was plenty of warning prior to 911 which Bush and Co. did not act on . No one knows if decisive action in advance would have prevented it, but what is known is that the White House was warned and did NOT act. 911 happened on Bush's watch. Ignoring that fact AND taking credit for what didn't happen is sheer lunacy.

            It's like Ford Theatre bragging that only one president ever got shot there.

                Did anyone have a clue the sophisticated 20th century levies in LA wouldn't hold?  No, no one excepting the engineers that built them possibly.

      There shouldn't be a limit on their liability, and so far as I'm concerned, they should not have been allowed, or directed, to drill that deep without a pretty good game plan to plug a well running wild, and that would be government failure at it's worst.

                    Take a sad song, and make it better-er-er

                    Remember, to let him into your heart

                    Then you'll know, you'll make it feel better

                    Better, better, better

    I understand the negative rage about McCartney.  Not just his words, just .period.  I don't know what he did that was so great to be knighted by the queen of England. They need to knight some of the humanitarians who actually DO something.....like feed and care for sick people in a sweltering tent in the middle of a humid jungle. Now THAT'S love. 

    God bless Mother Theresa! She shoulda been knighted!
