    Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

    Puddy is on record for calling out Vitter’s actions. Ask Steve. But as the HA Leftists said when we who think right identified their politicos double dipping… it’s just sex.

    As Puddy said before must be a slow politics day. Looks like Darryl had to find something to combat the David Letterman sexual exposé. You know, sexually fraternizing with subordinates. Did you HuffPo that coverage @2? Did you see how HuffPo performed their superb trademark blanket blog coverage, leaving no stone unturned when a lefty is caught in a sex scandal? Letterman’s audience that night loudly laughed and roared as he told his “story”, and then loudly clapped after he finished his explanation. Puddy is sure Dave’s hammering of his assistant Stephanie Birkitt was a “bizarre experience”. “Bizarre experience”. Those were Dave’s exact words. See the video yourself. But when it’s a lefty it’s just sex. Puddy is sure when Tim Mahoney was hammering Patricia Allen he was trying to create “a world that is safer, more moral.”

    As ArtFart said last night:

    Puddy’s shown up. Time to start another thread and leave him here wanking over his own reflection.

    In this case it leftists wanking over their hypocrisy!

    See ya hypocrites!

    Oh Darn Cynical… now that Chi-thugs will not get the Olympics we won’t see some artist placing “the whitey house messiah’s” head glowing in the five individual rings of the 2016 Olympic Banner.

    “Chicago received only 18 first-round votes. Madrid was the leader after Round 1 with 28, followed by Rio de Janeiro with 26. In the final round, Rio beat Madrid 66-32.”

    Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

    False equivalency Zotz?

    Vitter’s sex scandal happened in 2007. Mahoney’s October 2008. Letterman’s 2009. Why did Puddy choose Letterman? Well he did go after Sarah Palin’s 14 year old daughter butt you forgot that too Zotz.

    Tim Mahoney campaigned on this theme “a world that is safer, more moral.” President Clinton campaigned on Family Values in 1992 and 1996.

    I expect these numbers to get WORSE as America digests the Olympic failure and Middle East stonewall with troops at risk–

    Saturday, October 03, 2009

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 29% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-eight percent (38%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -9.

    Sixty-two percent (62%) now say that today’s children will not be better off than their parents.That pessimism is up sharply since January. Just 49% now believe the economy will be stronger in five years. That’s down from 64% at the beginning of the year.

    Childhood Diseases Surge

    Antigovernment ideology has spawned an anti-vaccination movement of parents who refuse to protect their kids against childhood diseases such as measles and whooping cough, which has led to a resurgence of those diseases, AOL News reports.

    The attitude of those parents seems to be, if your kid has been vaccinated you have nothing to fear from my kid getting sick, the article says.

    But public health officials are worried as more and more people take out their anti-science idiocy on their own children.

  27. 34

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @3 Let’s get something straight here. Letterman was an unmarried man and those were unmarried women, so what you refer to as a “sexual expose” was nothing more than what the rest of us call “dating.”

    And yes, since the dating parties are a 60-something and 30-somethings adults, the dates might include sex. We’re not talking about 9th grade sock hops here.

    As for Letterman being their employer, well, no sexual harassment has been alleged by the women and no lawsuits have been filed so I think it’s reasonable for the rest of us to assume the relationships were entirely mutual and consensual.

    In short, puddy, there’s nothing to see here so just move along.

  28. 35

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @33 “incompetenet leadership”

    How so? If I call 3 roofing contractors to get bids on a roof repair, and hire 1, that makes the other 2 incompetent? If Chicago doesn’t get the Olympics, is that the salesman’s fault, or maybe because a competitor offered a better deal? You are an idiot.

    Any 62 year old preying on their 20 something interns is creepy and perverted.

    Thus, David letterman is not only a creepy pervert, but an ill educated one at that. Liberalism is the least of this man’s problems, but certainly a symptom of what one can expect to see over their lifetime if they continue down this path.

  31. 39

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @38 “Agree?”

    Nope. The legal age of consent is 16 or something like that. By the way, Letterman’s “intern” is in her thirties, not twenties, and is a law school graduate and a licensed attorney.

    Piper Scott spews:


    Funny you should mention salesmen…

    A friend of mine, who is a very HIGH end professional in that line of work had this to say about what he saw of the Prez’s presentation:

    “I watched the USA pitch the IOC last night … I got home from making a speech in Vegas and wasn’t tired enough to go to bed.

    As a professional, who has made tons of team sales pitches … large and small … I cannot tell you how amateurish, stumbling, bumbling and poorly executed the league of Chicago thugs, was. NO one had any real presence … Dailey and the other criminals could barely execute the prompter text … because they have a tenuous grasp on English in general! The text itself was poorly written and the case was as flimsy and silly as I have ever seen. We have intellectual dwarfs running everything under the sun now.

    They were weak and foolish and as I watched and Barack took the prompter … it was embarrassing and demeaning to see him participate in not only a corrupt act itself … not only a terrible misuse of American resources and image and street-cred … but even a terrible execution that a high-school DECCA club would have done better at!!!!!

    He is so very, very dangerous and I cannot wait until 2010 to see the dems handed their hats and coats … coz it will happen.

    I am so happy that Dailey blackmailed him into going … sad for America that a thug mayor can bully a President … and glad he failed to help payback his Chicago slum-lord buddies … and thrilled at the failure. The funny thing is that people have to now really chase down the corruption on all the tax dollars and sponsorship cash that was distributed for the lame bid process. Monies spent in the game of attempting the bid.”

    Even a perfect product won’t be moved if the pitch is in the hands of a crappy salesman. That both the product and the salesman were crappy made it a slam dunk.

    @43 Puddy

    With all due respect, I did look up the ADRA “Adventist Development and Relief Agency.” It does seem like the Adventist Church does it good work, but I have trouble seeing gifts to one’s own religous organization as humanitarian.

    My skepticism is esp. strong given the strong role of proselytization by the Seventh Day Adventists. While they claim that the ADRA does not proselytize, the missions of the ADRA are paralleled by evangelism .

    While ADRA claims it “is committed to equal employment” ” ADRA exercises its constitutional and statutory rights as a religious organization and employer to prefer members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in employment. Those employees of ADRA who are recruited but not members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church are expected to accept the Seventh-day Adventist philosophy of humanitarian service and practice a lifestyle compatible with ADRA policies and Seventh-day Adventist beliefs.

    It seems to me that those wishing to help the Phillipinos can find less sectarian ways of doing do.

    Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:


    ADRA is officially recognized by the US State Department as a global relief agency. They have one of the lowest administrative costs because the church pays for most the people doing the worldwide work.

    “ADRA also actively promotes higher standards of living through participation in the United Nations Economic and Social Council since being granted general consultative status in 1997.”

    Puddy realizes this is hard for leftists to understand a church agency doing God’s commands. So if you want to have your money arrive at the place you designate participate in ADRA.

    BTW X’ad, did Bruce contact you about “his contributions” to the Philippines yet? Puddy noticed no one admitted to a charitable contribution yet. Very telling to Puddy about Libtardos and their own pocketbook.

  44. 58

    SJ spews:

    @57 Puddy

    I understand. perhaps all too well.

    ARDA is fine .. just like the R. Catholic, Mormon, Communist, and other sectarian charities.

    Did you give directly to the Philippines or to ARDA’s general fund?

    Does it bother you that I as a Jew and an aetheist could not work for ARDA? Would ARDA provide nonsectarian aid to my brothers and sisters still persecuted in Ethiopia or Iran or only to people more likely to hear the message of your church?

    How many devout atheists or hindues of buddhists does ARDA support as its agents of good works? Back during the soviet era what support did the ARDA give to refuseniks and was that charity without evangelism?

    Do you really NOT see why most of us prefer to give to Medecin sans Fronteirs, the UN, Oxfam or a Phillipino charity than to a church mission?

    Personally, BRS and I consider Medecin sans Fronteirs our number one charity Because it is utterly HUMANE in its work. We are very proud that MSF was founded by Jews as a HUMAN effort unbranded by any religion, culture or RACE OTHER THAN HUMANKIND.

    For me as a non Christian, I see the wonderful concept of charity through lenses smeared by the blood of 200,000 Mexicans who refused to convert, the sweat and tears of California’s natives and untold numbers of Africans sold into slavery, millions of Jews and Muslims slaughtered by the sword, children stolen form their parents to be educated by missionaries.

    I MOURN for the Gods of the Norse, the Gods of Africa, the gentle Buddhas of Korea , and noble Ravens of our own land sacrificed to the kndness and love of Jesus.

    Sound too unchristian to you?

  45. 59

    Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

    SJ asked

    Did you give directly to the Philippines or to ARDA’s general fund?

    One thing about ADRA, you can specify where the gift goes. All you do is send it to them with that stipulation. You receive a receipt from them acknowledging the transaction. When the Tsunami hit in 2004, we sent another $500 with that stipulation for Banda Aceh help. Yeah Banda Aceh, a muslim location.

    How many devout atheists or hindues of buddhists does ARDA support as its agents of good works?

    SJ what have you heard about ADRA?

    Why Doesn’t ADRA Proselytize?

    ADRA does not proselytize. It operates and is motivated by love that has no strings attached. The Christian ethos in ADRA programme activities is expressed when it reaches out to those in need regardless of race, gender, and political, or religious affiliation. ADRA operates in more than 125 countries worldwide and has an established track record of working in harmony with and respecting a broad array of cultures, traditions, and people of non-Christian faith. The positive impact of ADRA’s contribution in all these countries validates our heritage and belief in benevolent giving.

    So SJ whatever you speak to as you “worship” doesn’t have the facts about ADRA. If you read garbage about ADRA SJ then you think garbage about ADRA!

  46. 60

    Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

    ADRA is dedicated to protecting the vulnerable all over the world. We protect children who are sold as sex workers, advocate for women who must fight for the opportunity to learn to read, and defend the millions of minorities and others around the world who suffer in silence.

    @59 Puddy and the ARDA

    Everything I quoted about the ARDA, including their bias in hiring came from their own site.

    FWIW, I think it s very fine to donate through your church. BRS and I give to the Jewish Family and Child Service, in part because for the last several years most of JFCS’ aid has gone to Asian immigrants to Seattle.

    BUT .. YOU are the moralizing one here. YOU challenged others as to whether THEY had contributed to Phillipine aid. Giving money to your own church, that is NOT the same thing as a selfless gift to the people in need.

    As for giving toward ARDA in a muslim area, why not give directly to a Muslim charity? Isn’t that what Jesus would have done?

  48. 63

    @60 The Medecin sand Fronteirs goes a lot further. Its action are uttelry humane. It crosses all political and religious borders. It takes no role in undermining others cultures.

    Can you say the same for the ARDA?

    I think you need to looki in the mjirror ion thsi one. You8 love4 your chirch, and that is fine. BUT, mistaking a FChirch for a humane charity is the basis for a lot of harm we humans have done.

    Giving to a Muslim charity? Interesting point. But Puddy knows how ADRA uses the funds. Puddy has no values on muslim charities.

    What “Librardo” disease is that?

    I understand you think charity can come from your church. From what I read ARDA is a well run Adventist organization. I have no more of less reason to be suspicious of its other activities than I do of the RC charities, the Commnunist party. or some Muslim group.

    Is it reasonable to ask anyone else to feel that way? toward a mission of YOUR church How would you react if some liberal said he gave money to planned parenthood of the Philippines?

    @64: It figures you’re an Adventist.

    For everyone else’s edification (maybe the pudpuller’s too) and amusement:

    “…The Seventh-day Adventist Church is the largest of several “Adventist” groups which arose from the Millerite movement of the 1840s. The Millerites (after William Miller) were part of the wave of revivalism in the United States known as the Second Great Awakening. Miller predicted on the basis of Daniel 8:14-16 and the “day-year principle” that Jesus Christ would return to Earth on October 22, 1844. When this did not happen, most of his followers disbanded and returned to their original churches.

    “…The Adventists continued to believe that Christ’s second coming would be imminent, although they refrained from setting further dates for the event…”


  52. 67

    Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:


    The Libtardo disease is 24 hour forgetfulness. X’ad asked people to remember the Philippines last Friday. Bruce the Idiot claimed X’ad would not get conservatives to contribute. Puddy blew that right out of Bruce’s small brain with a well placed comment. Have you noticed Bruce disappeared from the comments?

    Puddy suggests ADRA because it’s one of the best out there. For a while ADRA and Catholic Charities were the two US State Department vehicles used for immediate worldwide emergency agencies. You know US Approved!

    How would you react if some liberal said he gave money to planned parenthood of the Philippines?

    Dumb question. It’s their money
