Bring it on! Chairman Johnson is ready

Buncombe County GOP Chairman Dr. Tim Johnson has been extremely successful in growing the Buncombe County Republican Party, pushing technology and increasing diversity. You can hear the passion in Tim's voice when he speaks of conservatism. And you can hear his passion when he speaks to today's youth and minorities about the lies the Democrats tell for votes. I have never seen so many young people in the BCGOP until now.

Chairman Johnson has attracted Libertarians, independents and even Democrats to listen to a conservative viewpoint. He has succeeded in changing the minds of these people and they have registered as Republicans. He has energized conservatives who have almost given up hope and has inspired them to stand up and fight.

To some long-time party Republicans, bringing in new people from different political backgrounds is unacceptable. Even I am on record for lashing out against Libertarians. But Tim knows, as I now know, that it is going to take everyone to save the United States from the socialist regime of Obama, his lies and cultist followers.

Being in politics for a very long time, I know that activist liberals and unprincipled Republicans will come after Johnson and his family with everything they have because Chairman Johnson's leadership is a direct threat to the local and state Democratic party and to those RINO Republicans who pick up the crumbs of the Democrats.
My recommendation to those people is to bring it on! Chairman Johnson is a fighter. A fighter for the moral character, truth and traditional values of Americans.

The Democrats have become so corrupt and un-American that their vengeance will show their ugly face and more people will wake up to fight them.

On behalf of The Carolina Stompers, we stand behind Chairman Johnson and we congratulate him as he is now the new vice chairman of the North Carolina State Republican Party.

    You know Chad I find it very easy to be a Democrat, good father, patriotic, hard working member of society. I take umbrage at your painting of the people in the party as corrupt or un-american. There is plenty of corruption to go around in both parties. Look at the service records of the senators. More dems have served in the armed forces than reps. (for one minor example).
    I feel both parties have to work together to get our country back on better moral and economic footing. Active debate is good for the US. Fighting and division will get us into a deeper mess.

  2. don yelton

    nuvue I think this is what Chad was saying in this comment, ‘is going to take everyone to save the United States from the socialist regime of Obama, his lies and cultist followers.’

    It is not about party but about right and wrong. What about the common practice of only hiring people if your politics is correct. Now you can not deny that is not the practice here in WNC.

    What about Vance-Aycock Dinner and the Wilmington Race Riots. We can’t blame the murder of Black Americans on Bush,can you????

    What about the wasted money in the NC budget.
    Just stay tuned and you will learn of more practices of using jobs to hurt people or help a select few. That few being ones that hire relatives to work for the county. The County Garage and Transfer Station to mention just two. We will not talk about the finance department or the latest incident where politics played into letting someone go.

    nuvue said – <>I feel both parties have to work together to get our country back on better moral and economic footing<>

    It is the Democrat Party that has been cutting away at morality in this country.

    It is the Democrat Party that tax and spend Americans money to the point of destroying our economic survival.

    We have tried the, “lets just all get along”, “both parties work together”, game. Liberal Democrats don’t want it.
    They hate conservatives.
    Let me say that again – THEY “HATE” CONSERVATIVES!

    Targeting Christians is the militant liberal Democrats number one objective. The shear number of Christian votes in America is what stands in the way of alternative lifestyle liberals. The Democrat platform supports this type of lifestyle.
    Christians are the moral base in this country.
    The Democrat Party will do anything to destroy it.

    How many Trillions is it now in Obama’s first 100 day’s? Obama said the unemployment would not reach 8%. Now it’s 9.4%.
    How’s all that HOPE AND CHANGE
    working out for you, your friends, your family, our country?

    I to am a good father, patriotic, a hard worker in society, and guess what? I used to be a strong Democrat. But the Democrat Party left me and American values. I could not stand being a hypocrite by staying a Democrat. I found it easy to be a Republican because they believe in America, morality, a strong “capitalistic” economy, a thriving education system, a strong military, and family values.

    Now is not the time for working with haters.
    Now is the time to fight and save our nation!

  4. joeinmadco

    Chad, you should be a slogan writer, because you’re all style and no substance.

    Ah, I get it. It’s all bad guys vs. good guys; just like they taught us. Ethics takes no thought whatsoever because, duh, what’s right is what they preach is right, and everyone else is an unpatriotic bogeyman. And, of course, all people can definitely, with pinpoint accuracy, be classified according to their voting preferences or party affiliation.

    Seriously, do you really believe the words that you type?

  5. Asheville Native

    Soooooooo Chadrat, where on the moral scale do Mark Sanford’s trip(s)to Argentina fall? Isn’t he a card carrying member of the GOP? So much for your vacuous sterotyping. There is NO logic to your “argument”, therefore you and your OPINION are irrelevant.

  6. Chad Nesbitt

    joeinmadco,

    Yes I do believe the words I type because I believe in America. The Republican platform is the closest political ideology that’s positive about the United States and my core beliefs.

    As a former Democrat growing up close to the movers and shakers of the NC Democrat Party I can tell you for certain that you are correct.
    It is the bad guys VS the good guys.

    If you are a registered Democrat you are part of a socialistic, unpatriotic, bunch of brain washed kool aid drinkers.

    YOU NEED TO WAKE UP AND SNAP OUT OF IT!

  7. Piffy!

    Chad, how do Mark Sanford’s recent admission of infidelity factor in to your lockstep alliance with the republican party and the “Values” it preaches?

    Or do you avoid dealing with that, and the many other hypocritical actions of the Rep’s by obsessing over the Dems?

    You should really take some time to clean up your yard before you criticize your neighbor’s.

  8. Jeff Sims

    I do not claim to be able to speak for Chad, but I do know that there is a grass-roots movement in this nation born of frustration with corrupt politicians, regardless of party. The same laws of morality apply to Mark Sanford that apply to Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy or anyone else. Corrupt is corrupt, whether you’re talking about marriage, money or public service.
    Having met and spoken with Dr. Johnson personally, the impression I have of him is that he is driving to restore honor to public service and I’m all for that! Johnson, and others, including myself, have spoken out against corruption in the Republican party and I would challenge Democrats to do the same, as well as think hard about the principles that the party is espousing currently. Last year I dropped my membership in the GOP due to the fact that the party as a whole no longer represents me, and will not even consider rejoining until they clean up their act.
    As for the left (notice I didn’t say all Dems) hating America, I thoroughly agree. America is a principle, not a hunk of real estate or an abstract idea. One cannot desire to put aside and demonize the pillars of America; Freedom from tyranny, personal responsibility, very limited central government, and above all, FAITH IN GOD, and claim not to hate America! These principles and America are one and the same, as anyone who has seriously studied the founding knows. The disdain of these values and love for America is ridiculous, just as is moving into a house that one claims to love and then proceeding to gut it and replace every single fitting!

  9. joeinmadco

    Chad, unlike you, I try not to let someone else’s blind ideology and circus-sideshow rhetoric do my thinking for me. You seem to have a need to cling to one faction or another. I understand: it sure makes things less complicated.

    But just keep yelling those cliched slogans. I’m sure it’ll make you feel righteous and accepted.

  10. Don Yelton

    At least the Republicans mainly like ladies and not like Barney Frank was doing in Washington.

    No dealing just the facts.

  11. Chad Nesbitt

    The (PFKaP),

    Dude, when did you go to “The” PFKaP? I thought it was just PFKaP. Are you a title now?

    Well “The” (PFKaP), you didn’t read my letter to the editor did you. It’s mentions RINO’s just as much as Democrats. Dr. Johnson is doing a great job “cleaning up the yard” of RINO’s and his “neighbor’s”.

    As for Gov. Sanford – Personally, I think it is awful. He’s a slime ball. His children are the ones that will be hurt by this more than anyone. If his wife stands besides him at a podium and says, “I still love him” or “I’m going to stay with him for the sake of South Carolina”, I’m going to throw up.

    For once I would like to see one of these 1st ladies that have been cheated on say, “He’s a first class son of a bitch”, “That bitch can have that wee little man.”, “He’s worthless!”, “I’m divorcing this bastard and I’m suing them both.”, “Damn home wrecker!”

    Please, please let this 1st lady of South Carolina say this. Talk about cleaning up the yard. LOL. Talk about values! If she would do this, it would teach people to stand up for your self and your kids. It would shame other politicians into not even thinking about screwing around.

    Should he resign as Governor? No. If I lived in South Carolina, Sanfords personal life would not effect me. Just as Clintons did not. I appreciate him standing up to Obama and not taking stimulus money. He has done a lot of good things for SC like lowering taxes and making SC business friendly.

    Want to talk about effecting me as individual just look at what Dem NC Gov Mike Easley has done. He and his wife are under Federal investigation an I know nothing about their personal life. Look at Dem Gov Perdue. Raise taxes to save teachers jobs? How about stopping pork barrel and earmark spending. With the savings, you could double the teachers salary. And personally I think they need it doubled.

    Sanfords personal values are in the gutter.
    As a leader in the Republican Party he should take the heat. At least I as a conservative will call out my own and hold them accountable.
    Democrat leaders never hold there’s accountable. They only make excuses.

  12. John A. Smolkin

    I for one applaud Dr Johnson’s move up in the NC republican party. I am one of the libertarians who usually votes republican because republicans are closer to my core beliefs than the party of high taxes, corruption, and lies (the democrat party).

    I find it incredible that when a republican strays, as in the case of Governor Sanford, liberals jump on him and kick him while he is down. Yet if one of their own does something far, far worse, they celebrate him, or just ignore the indescretion. In the former case, you have Barney Frank, a Mass socialist democrat whose “room mate” got caught running a homosexual call boy ring out of Frank’s Washington residence. Fellow democrats defended Frank and acted as if Barney saying he was gay was some act of revolutionary courage or something.

    In the other example, Bill Clinton had regular sodomy sexual relations in the White House during normal business hours with a girl his daughter’s age. Clinton lied about it under oath. He was disbarred in Arkansas for 5 years and permanently disbarred from arguing cases before the US Supreme Court. Clinton was only the second president to have ever been impeached. Yet fellow democrats act as if none of this happened, and the lapdog press helped us “forget” it too.

    “Dude, when did you go to “The” PFKaP? I thought it was just PFKaP. Are you a title now?” Chad, for the same reason that New York Times has a “The” in front of it’s name. An exaggerated sense of self-importance. -:)

  13. Ken Hanke

    These guys just don’t realize that they’re the best friends the Democrats ever had. Keep right on spouting this stuff — and Yelton’s little blast of homophobia? Exquisite!

  14. Piffy!

    [b]At least the Republicans mainly like ladies and not like Barney Frank was doing in Washington.

    No dealing just the facts. [/b]

    I guess you forgot about larry craig, just to mention one of the most recent in a loooong-line of outed perverts within the republican party.

    Richard Curtis? the list goes on and aon and ona and on….

  15. travelah

    I guess you forgot about larry craig, just to mention one of the most recent in a loooong-line of outed perverts within the republican party.

    I didn’t realize you were homophobic. What will that do to your liberal Ashvillian credentials?

  16. Don Yelton

    I love it when they prove our points about how they attack a man that got the hots for another women and then they go back to a man that was playing footsie in a stall and ignore a man that was running a call service for young men for men.

    Come one Ken and others are you so slow that you do not see that you are proving my point. I ain’
    homophobic at all, but you have a fear of the truth and keep on showing your one sided attitude.

    Lets see who else you can attack… to prove my points.

  17. Piffy!

    Actually, don, nothing in my post makes any reference to defending the Democratic party. I just find it incredibly hypocritical and quite stupid to hear a Republican trying to take the moral high ground when “your” party is full of adulterers, closeted homosexuals, and various other hypocrites.

    Personally, i find the partisans on both sides to be equally deplorable.

    Not that i expect you to be able to understand the concept of someone not having a blind allegiance toward either an R or D.

  18. Piffy!

    But, do tell, Don, how “attacking” Bernie Maddoff gives you the moral high ground, yet someone pointing out that Mark Sanford is a lying adulterer ‘proves your point”?

    I guess it is easier for small minds to stick to party lines instead of making intelligent, independent choices based on fact.

  19. PatD

    I see our insignificant Chad Nesbitt still has not developed much further in the brain usage area. That’s a given of course.
    He still compensates with an overinflated ego. Carry on Chad.
    Or should I say ‘keep on digging’?
    You and just about every other hopeless and hypocrite republican, in this country, are doing a swell job.

  20. Jack S.

    The(PFaP) I read here. Never seen you talk down a democrat. I think you lyin. Just talk strait up. It OK if you think democrats Ok and republican hynocrites. Cause they are to. But you a republiphobe. Now come on and say it so.

    And why you got a ‘The’ in front?

  21. Matt Howard

    From 18-34 I was a registered independent. I joined the Dems three years ago not because of anything they did, but because of the general attitude of the republicans. I am pro-abortion (thats right, six billion and counting) support gay marrage (my conservative parents split up when I was three, thats my sanctity of marrage lesson) and not a christian (do what you want on sunday, but I dont want to live by your definition of god). Yes there are many slimeball dixiecrats, and truely crazy lefties. But there is no place in the Republican party for me.

    I also think this is still the best country in the world. When Thomas Jefferson said “all men are created equal” he meant WHITE MEN. But…. he did mean the son of a farmer is equal in status to the son of a king. For the time that was pretty radical stuff, and that’s where we started. We have come a long way and arent done yet.

  22. Chad Nesbitt

    Matt Howard said – “I also think this is still the best country in the world.”

    I do to. We are just trying to keep it that way.

    Any one that would make the statement, “I am pro-abortion (thats right, six billion and counting)”,
    has a MENTAL PROBLEM. You are the brainwashed cultest follower I have alway’s talked about.
    PERFECT EXAMPLE.

    Kind of like Hanke said – You make the Republicans job easier.

  23. Matt Howard

    Not brainwashed Chad.
    I came to this conclusion on my own. Remember, most people use the term “pro-choice”. I use pro-abortion, frankly, to get exactly the kind of response I got from you.

    It’s called a moral comprimise.

    I would prefer that an unwanted pregnancy never actually happen. But they do. And at the rate we are going population wise coupled to the rising rates of pollution, at some point there may not even be enough drinking water in many parts of the world. I made the choice to be more concerned with lives in progress than ones that are not yet self sustaining.

    Support the war in Iraq?
    Christian?
    Isnt thou shalt not kill #2?

    Debating the merits of the war is not my point. Osama should have been dead years ago, and while I think the death penality isnt applied fairly, Im not against it per se.

    The point is we all make moral comprimises.

    I would rather have quality of life for a reasonable population than have us burn through this planets finite resources by the end of the 21st century.

  24. Piffy!

    Cullen, if you think you’ve never read me ‘talkin down democrats’ you are doing a very sub-par job of stalking.

  25. PatD

    Just wondering.

    Are all these hardcore conservative, hate mongering racist and god worshiping cultist republicans, after the total mess their greatest screw up of a president left us with, totally in denial, completely delusional or just downright mean & narrow minded people?

    All of the above is what comes to mind.

    We just left behind a disgraceful period in US history.
    We are finally moving into a time where the rest of the world ‘could’ regain some respect for this once great nation. The damage done is just overwhelming.

    But here they are. The stompers, the nesbitts of the world, the keepers of virtue and righteousness, relentless in their zeal to dictate and control the rights and freedom of other people. More specifically, those who are not up to their ‘standards’.

  26. Ken Hanke

    What is the connection between conservatives (as they call themselves) and rampant illiteracy? Or is Jack S. going to claim that “hynocrites” is a typo (the n and the p being so close together on the keyboard) and that leaving out verbs altogether is some kind of aesthetic choice?

    And, by the bye, Jack S., calling yourself Jack S., while possibly appropriate, is every bit as much hiding behind a screen name as The (PKap).

  27. Chad Nesbitt

    PatD is another PERFECT EXAMPLE of why conservatives are going to win these next elections.

    His comments remind me of
    Perze Hilton. A whining “true” hater that hates morality because it doesn’t jive with his deviant lifestyle. Nobody likes Perez Hilton. Even the Democrats wish he would shut up. They know he makes the Christians mad and when they get mad they vote. Even Obama is staying away from the promise to help gay rights which he said he would fight for. He is scared of the Christian!

    I would remind Mr. D that since we invaded the middle east there has not been another terrorist attack in the United States. And yes, the damage to the terrorist has been overwhelming.

    Yes, yes they are here! As PatD says – “the Stompers, the Nesbitts of the world, the keepers of virtue and righteousness”. Yes relentless in their zeal to stop dictators like Obama and his cultist followers that want to control the rights, traditional values, higher taxes, medical rights, and freedoms of the American people.

    I’m proud to say, we are here to stay!

  28. Piffy!

    So, by not liking you, or your ilk, Pat D has “a deviant lifestyle”?

    Looks like you just proved his point, Chad.

  29. Ken Hanke

    So, by not liking you, or your ilk, Pat D has “a deviant lifestyle”?

    Of course. Any lifestyle that doesn’t measure up to Chad’s interpretation of normalcy and Christianity is deviant.

  30. Jim Shura

    Where is Tim Johnson’s PHD from? Has anyone figured this out yet?

  31. joeinmadco

    “So, by not liking you, or your ilk, Pat D has ‘a deviant lifestyle’?”

    I suspect Chad won’t rest until his own personal golden calf dictator is in place. He just doesn’t have the intellectual honesty to admit it.

  32. PatD

    What is the connection between conservatives (as they call themselves) and
    rampant illiteracy?

    Somewhere I stated this before Ken (it’s not my quote); Not all conservatives
    are ignorant. But ALL ignorant people are conservative.

  33. PatD

    Yes, it must be true.
    I must lead a deviant lifestyle.
    For one, I am not a superstitious nitwit believing in the existence of a skydaddy.
    Then, to make it worse, I actually believe in basic human rights and freedom of choice.
    And no, little nesbitt bug, in my world, that notion is not confined to white american males.

    Ok Chad, I know you really can’t help it.
    You can only work with what you have and that is not much.
    Have you considered Alaska? I hear they have a few more of your narrow minded kind.
    Or perhaps, if that is too far, there is a position opening up soon in South Carolina.

  34. Chad Nesbitt

    Like I said – PatD is Perez Hilton.

    PatD said – “Then, to make it worse, I actually believe in basic human rights and freedom of choice.”

    Ohhhhh Ken Hanke is reeeeealy wishing you had not said the word “choice”.

    LO freakin L baby, I gotch you!

    Hanke, I told you in our past post’s that being gay was not a civil right it was a “choice”.

    Glad to see one of your buddies support me in that.

    HA, HA, HA, HA, HA!

  35. Chad Nesbitt

    Mr. Yuck,

    Let me put a smile on your face.
    Be watching for a youtube later tonight or tomow.

  36. PatD

    Oh poor Chad. Tonight he is writing without someone proofing. It shows Leicester boy.
    Your posts are a far cry from the original letter which, I suspect, was most likely not written by you.

    Carry on ol’ boy. Make us all proud.
    Show us the good American you are by stomping on all and everyone not matching your idea of ‘right’.

    Now, if you excuse me, I have to do some further planning on my deviant lifestyle.

  37. “PatD said – “Then, to make it worse, I actually believe in basic human rights and freedom of choice.”

    Ohhhhh Ken Hanke is reeeeealy wishing you had not said the word “choice”.

    LO freakin L baby, I gotch you!

    Hanke, I told you in our past post’s that being gay was not a civil right it was a “choice”.

    If this is an example of what passes for logic and intelligent debate in the rebuplican party‘s activist members, is it any wonder that it is disintegrating before our very eyes? Keep up the good work Chad.

  38. Chad Nesbitt

    Hanke said – “Of course. Any lifestyle that doesn’t measure up to Chad’s interpretation of normalcy and Christianity is deviant”

    Hanke you know very well, and I have stated publicly, I don’t care what people do in the privacy of there own bedroom.
    That’s their business.

    Here is what I see that is deviant –

    1. The Andrew Reed case was deviant.
    Top Democrats in Buncombe County came out in support of this gay activist even after knowing what he did. That makes me want to throw up.
    Reed is a monster.

    2. Fulsome Street Fair is deviant if not demonic.
    It is basically a sex orgy of 250 thousand people on a public street. Children were there.
    In my opinion, beside Pearl Harbor and 9/11, Fulsome is the worst tragedy America has ever seen. Sadly it continues to happen and is becoming acceptable.

    3. Teaching school kids different ways to have sex and “be gay – try it you might like it” curriculum is deviant. I’m all for teaching kids about contraception and most importantly abstinence but teaching sexual techniques and try being gay….. hell no!

    I could go on but it’s making me sick.

    The gay movement reminds me of the Muslims.
    They never critize or try to stop their own from doing acts of terrorism.

    As a father, it is my duty to protect my child from people that support deviant behavior.
    The Democrat Party rallies behind this behavior because they find money and votes there. At least the Republican Party has the guts to stand up for my kid and my rights as a father to instill positive thoughts for a successful future!

  39. PatD

    Oh my …. if there was any doubt about Mr. Nesbitt’s brain development, or rather underdevelopment, this last post clears things up.

    On the other hand, what I find so beautiful, is that we clearly see evolution at work here. Some of our species develop and some of us clearly don’t.

    “1. The Andrew Reed case was deviant”
    Yes, definitely something fishy was going on there but isn’t that dude also a religious person, like yourself Mr. Nesbitt?

    “2. Fulsome Street Fair is deviant if not demonic”
    Perhaps you have a bit of voyeuristic behavior in you Chad. Who knows, you could even be a closet gay.
    I had honestly never even heard about the event, being a straight guy that is, and I would have no intentions on attending so, how could it possibly bother me? Obviously, it bothers you but then you clearly are homophobic. And it is Folsom Street, not Fulsome.

    “3. Teaching school kids different ways to have sex and “be gay – try it you might like it” curriculum is deviant. I’m all for teaching kids about contraception and most importantly abstinence but teaching sexual techniques and try being gay….. hell no!”
    Teaching to be gay Chad? Abstinence?
    Are you joking or just plain dumb?
    As far as I can remember, I never had problem with being heterosexual. It was not something that had to be taught. See, I am born that way just like some of us are born homosexual. Again, you might have some hidden issues there.

    Ah, and putting Gays on the same line with Muslims. That’s a real good one Chad, a gem.

    The term Muslim a description of a person of the Muslim faith, just like say a person like you is a member of christian cult.
    But obviously you found a connection between a sexual orientation that does not match your own and people in the middle east following the cult of Muhammad.

    It must be because Gays, as you so intelligently point out, are not doing anything to stop their acts of terrorism?

    haaa… sorry, I am laughing so hard, I have a problem typing.

  40. Ken Hanke

    Ohhhhh Ken Hanke is reeeeealy wishing you had not said the word “choice”.

    LO freakin L baby, I gotch you!

    Chad, old thing, if you really want me to take you seriously, it would help if you’d drop the chatspeak and stop crowing like some idiot barnyard fowl every time you think you’ve made some non-existent point. You’re really not going to make the points you want in this manner. All you’re doing is endorsing the view that most of us already have that the Carolina Stompers are a fringe group of nutcases who are only serving to bring the Republican party further down.

  41. Mr Whipple

    Ken, don’t be so serious. I for one am glad Chad treats this thread with a good dose of friendly humor. We all need to lighten up about politics. There are at least 2 sides to every issue, each valid. Let’s all treat each other with respect and enjoy a good back-and-forth on the issues…and have a good laugh at the same time.

  42. nuvue

    Is the Fulsom St. thing worse than…say Okla. City bombing, or is that terrorism convieniently left out?

  43. Chad Nesbitt

    Hanke,

    CROW, CROW! CROW, CROW!
    COCK A FREAKIN DOODLE DEE!

    Hanke has no manners you see.
    So this arrogant post is directed at thee.

    I just love it when one of your own agrees with me. My points are always made to the T.

    Maybe PatD should stick with URTV.
    I hear the lawyers will be.

    COCK A FREAKIN DOODLE DEE!

  44. travelah

    Chad, you are making a bigger horses ass of yourself than you already are.

  45. Chad Nesbitt

    nuvue,

    No it’s not left out and yes, I think Fulsome is a form of terroism.

  46. Chad Nesbitt

    travelah,

    Ha, Ha! I’m just laughing at these people that get on here and do nothing but cut people down.

    You can’t have a logical conversation with some of them because they love to hate.

    They hate morality and they hate America.

    If one of these arrogant liberals slips up in their argument and agrees with me –
    I’m going to crow.

    CROW! CROW! CROW!

    I’m sick of some of you that want to try to beat down someone for their conservative opinion.

    This Republican party in Buncombe is not going to take it anymore. Your going to see it at the next election.

    Susan Fishers new hate crime bill should ad conservatives to the list of, “It is unlawful to hurt someone because of age, race, color, gender, handicap, (Fishers gender identity or expression), and should read CONSERVATIVE OPINION.

    Why? What exactly do you think you’re trying to do with anyone who doesn’t think like you do? Good Lord, Chad, you even call your club the Carolina Stompers.

  49. Asheville Native

    Your hubris is embarassing Chad.
    Your point of view would be slightly more palatable with some sense of humility in your assertions. Try it sometime, you might find yourself with more listeners.

  50. PatD

    A logical conversation Chad?
    It’s hard to have an open minded conversation with someone who states idiocies like “teaching kids to be gay” and as Ken pointed out, someone who calls himself a Stomper.

  51. entopticon

    Chad, it is amazing that you still keep pushing the notion that sexual preference is a choice, even after it was incontrovertibly proven that your belief that it is a choice betrays the fact that you have been projecting your own bisexuality.

    The logic is irrefutable; it can’t be a choice unless choice is involved. Choice is only involved if you could choose to be with either sex. If you weren’t attracted to both sexes, choice would have nothing to do with it.

    Unlike you, I cannot choose to be with either sex, because I am only attracted to women. Many gay people don’t have a choice either, because they are only attracted to the same sex. It is only those of you that are attracted to both sexes that see it as a choice.

    If you had no choice in the matter, you would certainly have absolutely no business claiming that it is a choice for someone else. The obvious truth is, you are attracted to both sexes, and that is why you project your choice onto the rest of us. Those of us who are only attracted to one sex or the other know perfectly well that sexual preference is not a choice for everyone.

    Again, the logic of my argument is absolutely airtight. Perhaps if you took some effort to address your bisexuality, instead of just watching clips from the Fulsome Street Fair over and over again for the naughty excitement that you derive from it, you might actually grow enough to stop projecting your choice onto the rest of us.

  52. Chad Nesbitt

    Oh no!
    It’s entopticon.
    The Lord of Dooooom!
    The author of –
    BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!

    I Stomped you in this argument last time.

    President Obama agrees with me.
    Shuler agrees with me.
    Hell, even PatD agrees with me.

    Three socialists agreeing with a conservative.

    Hot Damn!
    There is hope and change!

    [b]I’m sick of some of you that want to try to beat down someone for their conservative opinion. [b/]

    and yet you berate others for having a differing opinion, or even just what you perceive/assume is a differing opinion. Hmmmmm.

    Those from your own party dont even want you.

  54. Chad Nesbitt

    LET’S ASK ELLISTON!

    John,

    As a reporter / editor that looks at the comments more than anybody-

    Are there more conservative opinion letters to the editor or liberal?

    People use their real name when writting a letter to the editor.
    Do you see more personal attacks of liberal minded people in the comment sections than conservative and do you think personal attacks scare people from writing a letter to the editor?

  55. Piffy!

    let me try that again

    [b]I’m sick of some of you that want to try to beat down someone for their conservative opinion. [/b]

    and yet you berate others for having a differing opinion, or even just what you perceive/assume is a differing opinion. Hmmmmm.

    Those from your own party dont even want you.

  56. entopticon

    You stomped me? You couldn’t stomp if every Stomper in the state had your back.

    As a matter of fact, my argument is incontrovertible. Answer this: are you really trying to say that you have no choice in which gender you are attracted to, but you choose anyway?

    Chad, even you are not so far gone or logically challenged that you can’t see that my argument is absolutely irrefutable. If you weren’t attracted to both sexes, it would be completely irrational for you to say that you choose to be with a woman, because you wouldn’t have any choice in the matter.

    And of course, if you didn’t have any choice in the matter, it would completely ludicrous and hypocritical of you to suggest that it’s a choice for everybody else.

    Face it Chad, I won the argument. You don’t even have a counterargument, because there is none to be made. It’s basic logic Chad, if you weren’t attracted to both sexes, you would have no choice of which sex you were attracted to, so it would be completely irrational for you to say others had a choice. There is no rational argument against that.

  57. evolved

    It is a shame that the new conservatives don’t realize that GHWBush needed to get the “crazies” (his quote referring to the conservative Christians) on his side for the Republicans to stay in power… They say anything and divide us on moral issues, which has nothing to do with running a stable country. Their ilk are nothing like you or any one of us, but use us all as pawns to further their gross power games.

  58. PatD

    “Hell, even PatD agrees with me.

    Well I am glad we are on the same page Mr Nesbitt.
    On freedom of choice that is.
    Like in freedom for a woman to choose if she wants to continue HER pregnancy or not. Glad to see that among all the close minded conservatives, there is one, our brave Chad Nesbitt, who dares to stand up and say, I stand for freedom of choice, therefore I am pro-abortion.

    Congratulations, you have moved up a bench.

    What is that you say?
    You did not mean it that way. You focused on the ‘choice’ word and, while pulling it out of context, used it in the most idiotic way to cover up your own homosexuality?

    Oh well …

  59. Cecil Bothwell

    Love the lofty level of discourse here.

    I’d like to go back to the part about socialism. It’s a real screamer that right wingnuts like Chad claim that Obama is or could be more socialist or spendthrift with taxpayer dollars than Bush. The meaningful difference is in the beneficiaries.

    Chad seems to think it is NOT wasteful spending to pay out billions of dollars in no-bid contracts to military corporations, for munitions that disappear as soon as they are used, for restoration of New Orleans that never took place, for a war on drugs that has failed for a century … all perfectly appropriate expenditures of our taxes. All so wonderfully “capitalist.” Especially the part where the corporations offshore their headquarters to avoid paying U.S. taxes while they wave their “made in China” American flags.

    But Obama’s stimulus, aimed however well or badly at saving the banking system that Republican deregulation allowed to self-destruct, to build schools and repair roads, to hire teachers, to fund stop-gap health care until we can build a better system, to create jobs for people who will be able to keep their homes, feed their families, buy insurance, pay taxes … all of that is socialism because it helps people instead of corporate CEOs and leaves behind infrastructure for the next generation. Oh, that’s so bad.

    (The real danger is that with more schools and better public education we’d have fewer conservatives, but I digress.)

    Recall that the last time a Democrat was widely accused of leading us to socialism (Franklin Roosevelt) he was widely credited for saving this country from a communist/socialist revolution that was brewing globally among discontented workers. (I forget, do conservatives study history?) And Roosevelt’s anti-revolutionary effort resulted in Social Security, the 40 hour work week, wage and hour laws … all of which I’m sure Chad hates.

    Yo, Chad, are you rich enough to renounce your Social Security checks when you get there?
    Just asking.

  60. Dionysis

    “It is basically a sex orgy of 250 thousand people on a public street.”

  61. PatD

    I hear there will be a group travel tour. It’s organized by a local gay and lesbian circus troupe. I believe they call themselves Carolina Stompers or something like that. A befitting name for you know what :-)

  62. entopticon

    Chad has never been known for continuity and reason, but I find Chad’s claim that liberals “hate morality” to be particularly amusing.

    In Chad’s upside-down bizarro-world, liberals want to increase aid to the needy because they hate morality, which of course makes no sense whatsoever. And even more bizarrely, Chad wants to cut aid for the poor and give tax cuts to the richest of the rich in the name of morality. The most hilarious thing about that is that the ludicrous hypocrisy of it is completely lost on him. He even wants to deny universal healthcare in the name of morality!

    Chad also thinks liberals want to save the planet from environmental disaster because they hate morality. That borders on insane. What’s even stranger is that Chad wants to fight any effort to reduce emissions standards to keep our skies from blackening, and environmental standards to keep from poisoning our planet, all for giant global corporations to make even bigger profits, in the name of morality!?!

    And the list goes on and on. In the Chadoverse, liberals want equal pay for women because they hate morality, liberals want less spent on war and more spent on helping the needy because they hate morality, and liberals are even against torture because they hate morality!?! In the Chadoverse, he is even for torturing people in the name of morality!

    Who would the pacifist, Jesus Christ torture Chad? Of course the answer is no one, because pacifists don’t torture. And any true follower of a pacifist wouldn’t torture either, because by definition, to be a Christian means to strive to be Christlike. According to your twisted logic, liberals are less moral because they are far more Christlike than you.

    Jesus was perfectly clear. He commanded that you give to every single person who begs from you, whether you think they deserve it or not. He even commanded that you give a beggar the shirt off your back if they ask for it. In other words, he was the ultimate anti-Republican. He believed that excessive wealth was a sin, but you support the party who wants to give tax cuts to the richest of the rich. He was against the death penalty, and against violence, even in self defense. And he was even against public prayer. He never took any issue with homosexuals whatsoever and may well have been one, but warned not to judge.

    In other words for you to keep claiming the moral high ground in the name of Christian morality, even though you constantly rail against the core values of Christ, is just plain ridiculous.

  63. shadmarsh

    how did I miss this enlightening discussion?

    Has anyone answered whether or not Johnson got his “Phd” at PhD’s-R-US or not?

  64. travelah

    I am guessing his “Ph.D” is bogus since it would appear he is claiming “LaSalle University” as the source and the Catholic university does not grant the Ph.D for anything but psychology. If this is the case, he should immediately correct his resume or resign, perhaps both for the dishonesty.

  65. Piffy!

    I think chad is hoping he can derail the conversation long enough for the info about Johnson’s “Ph.D” to just go away…

  66. Piffy!

    careful, cecil, if chad knew how to vote, you might have just lost his…

  67. Biff Johnston

    The hate here is getting too much. Can’t we just discuss the issues without all the vitriol? My leftwing friends are fond of saying that rightwingers are hateful. Yet, the hate on this thread is coming from the left. Let’s talk about issues, not personalities. We wouldn’t want readers in, say Florida, to think Asheville is full of people who snipe at each other behind anonymous names, do we?

  68. PatD

    Where do you see the hate coming from the left Biff? I think Chad is just getting blasted for spouting some unbelievable idiotic and narrow minded stuff.

    And someone walking around with such hateful ideas, towards gays or anyone different than him or his narrow viewpoint, is actually an issue.

    Other than that, I think most of us just had some fun with him.

  69. Dionysis

    “The hate here is getting too much…the hate on this thread is coming from the left.”

    Please point out the “hate” coming from “the left.” As PatD notes, there are comments taking exception to some of Mr. Nesbitt’s postings. That’s not “hate.”

    A few choice words or phrases from Mr. Nesbitt, however, seems closer to ‘hate’ than anything else on here. For example:

    “Now is not the time to work with haters (Democrats.”

    “If you are a registered Democrat you are part of a socialistic, unpatriotic, bunch of brain washed kool aid drinkers.”

    If you are pro-choice, you have a “mental problem.”

    Obama is “a dictator.”

    Liberals “hate morality and hate America.”

    Now, point out comparable posts by ‘liberals’.

    Oh, and to Chad Nesbitt: you made the oft-repeated claim that “being gay is a choice.”

    How old were you when you decided to which gender you’d be sexually attacted? How about your mother, father, brothers, sisters, friends and neighbors? When did they make this ‘choice’?

  70. Ken Hanke

    We wouldn’t want readers in, say Florida, to think Asheville is full of people who snipe at each other behind anonymous names, do we?

    So is Biff Johnston your real name?

    And, personally, I’m far more concerned that readers don’t think the Carolina Stompers are representative of Asheville.

  71. Chad Nesbitt

    I’m back now. I was a guest on Yeltons show last night and had to prep Bothwells propaganda video for the TV audiance.

    We also showed a video of the dirty politics that Dr. Johnson and his family had to go through to prove he was in the military and a Doctor.
    I’ll put the video on youtube late tonight and post it here.

    It’s no surprise to me that liberals on this comment section want to degrade an African American.

    Thank you Biff Johnson for your comments.
    You are dead on.

    And Hanke – in a sense we do represent the county.
    The outlaying areas of Asheville are a whole lot diffrent than downtown Asheville.
    Been to a Tea Party lately?

    You still talking to yourself entopticon? LOL.

    Going to mow the yard.
    Will be back tonight.

  72. PatD

    So, for Mr Johnson to prove X is dirty politics.

    I vaguely seem to remember that little issue Mr Obama had during and after election. Help me out Chad? Something to do with Hawaii. Can’t remember what it was. Not dirty politics of course.

    Oh yes, liberals are always out to degrade the black man. Gays too and just about everyone different than say ‘normal’. Yup, that’s the liberal agenda Chad ….. Can I join the Stompers please? But can we change the name? After all, it’s a nice little group of open minded folk. Right?
    How about the Carolina Strokers?

  73. Biff Johnston

    Hate? I guess you liberal socialist are so used to saying hateful things you don’t even recognize your own hate speech. Here are the examples:

    PatD: “Are all these hardcore conservative, hate mongering racist and god worshiping cultist republicans, after the total mess their greatest screw up of a president left us with, totally in denial, completely delusional or just downright mean & narrow minded people?”

    Kent Hanke: “What is the connection between conservatives (as they call themselves) and rampant illiteracy?”

    PatD: “ALL ignorant people are conservative.”

    PatD “For one, I am not a superstitious nitwit believing in the existence of a skydaddy.”

    PatD; “Teaching to be gay Chad? Abstinence?
    Are you joking or just plain dumb?”

    Jon: “Thanks for the passionate discussion, but please desist from name-calling—“horses ass” and the like.”

    Enepticon: “Chad, it is amazing that you still keep pushing the notion that sexual preference is a choice, even after it was incontrovertibly proven that your belief that it is a choice betrays the fact that you have been projecting your own bisexuality.”

    Enepticon: “Unlike you, I cannot choose to be with either sex, because I am only attracted to men. Many gay people don’t have a choice either, because we are only attracted to the same sex.”

    PatD: “I hear there will be a group travel tour. It’s organized by a local gay and lesbian circus troupe. I believe they call themselves Carolina Stompers or something like that.”

    Just a few cuts that are not “issue” oriented.

  74. travelah

    Chad,
    What proof did Mr. Johnson offer regarding the validity of his “doctorate”? The last mention I saw of this was his refusal to discuss the matter further. If his doctorate was indeed from the former Louisiana LaSalle then he is engaged in a fraud.

  75. entopticon

    In lieu of a counter-argument, Chad asked: “You still talking to yourself entopticon? LOL”

    No, I’m not, Chad. Are you still titillating yourself with footage of dancing half-naked men at the Fulsome Street fair while you whine and whine that it’s not fair that they choose to be with other men even though you deny yourself of what they’re doing even though you clearly want it so badly?

    Does your wife know that you “choose” to be with a woman, which means that you could have chosen to be with a man too, which means you are attracted to men as well? Perhaps you could work through the issues that you have with your same sex attraction through some kind of role-playing game if she is game.

    All kidding aside Chad, I did prove that the fact that you think sexual preference is a choice is proof that you wrestle with your own same sex attraction, because logic dictates that if you weren’t attracted to both sexes, you would have no choice in the matter, and if you had no choice in the matter, you wouldn’t keep projecting your naive theory that all people choose which gender to be with as you do.

    No matter how you slice it, my argument is airtight. You have no rational argument to counter it because there isn’t one to be made. The more you squirm, the more attention you bring to the fact that I am right, and there is no way around that. If you were half the man that you pretend to be, you would step up and admit the truth.

  76. entopticon

    I second the nomination to change the name of the Stompers to the Strokers. Nomination passed. From this point forward, the Carolina Stompers will be known as the Carolina Strokers.

  77. Ken Hanke

    And Hanke – in a sense we do represent the county

    Uh, no, you don’t. You walk around and flex your biceps and talk like you have all this political clout, but it hardly shows up at election time.

  78. PatD

    Hey Biff, thanks for the little synopsis.
    It’s good to see some of the arguments we all put up against our close minded, egotistical friend, Mr Biceps uh I mean Nesbitt.
    We did a pretty good job, wouldn’t you say?

    Oh, sorry, is having an opinion, not matching your conservative viewpoints, also hate speech?

  79. Biff Johnston

    Hanke: “Huh, no, you don’t. You walk around and flex your biceps and talk like you have all this political clout, but it hardly shows up at election time.”

    Kent, you just don’t know this area. WNC is conservative, whether people identify as democrat or republican. Many democrats vote republican but don’t want to register that way because Lincoln was a republican. And Lincoln raped the South. Asheville has a bunch of transplant liberals. But this an anomoly. You may have very liberal friends and think you are the majority, but that is not true. Most folks around here are Christian, go to church on Sunday, and are patriotic. Everything most liberals are not.

  80. entopticon

    Hey Biff, if you go misquoting me again you may have a much bigger and much meaner problem than little Chad on your hands. Don’t shoot the messenger, and don’t purposely misquote people because it is a seriously jerkoff thing to do.

    Just because I used logic to expose the bisexual attractions of you, Chad, and any other person who thinks sexual preference is a choice, don’t take it out on me. It is a plain and simple logical truism that only those who have a choice would believe that it is a choice for others. Rather than torturing yourself and the rest of us over your attraction to men, try to confront it.

  81. Dionysis

    “Just a few cuts that are not “issue” oriented.”

    Maybe not issue-oriented, but most of these sound like objective statements of fact, or in a couple of cases, rhetorical questions. For example, how does one’s expression of not believing in some supernatural Zeus in the sky constitute “hate?” Or how does someone describing their own sexual orientation constitute ‘hate’?

    And by the way, ‘Biff’, you apparently don’t really have a clue as to what a ‘liberal socialist’ really is, but like others of your ilk, you parrot the prescribed talking points. It’s surprising you haven’t used the newest talking point bit of idiocy from the right, ‘liberal fascists’.

    Gotta go now; I need to read two more chapters of Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book.

  82. nuvue

    Scuuuse me Biff, but I was from Jackson Co. I am Liberal minded, christian and patriotic. I don’t have to go to church on sunday to prove it though. I do take offense to the notion you have to be a Repub to be Patriotic, it just is not the case. You also do not have to go to church to prove you are a Christian.

  83. So it is Biff now? Cullen I just do not understand the need to have all these aliases, what is the benefit? are you “hiding” from the moderator or are you trying to make it difficult to ignore you.

    I must admit it has become an “interesting” game to see how long it takes to for your moronic opinion to shine though your identity de jour.

  84. Piffy!

    “From this point forward, the Carolina Stompers will be known as the Carolina Strokers. ”

    Thats good.

    Chad-where’s this proof you claim you are going to post of Johnson’s PhD?

    “I must admit it has become an “interesting” game to see how long it takes to for your moronic opinion to shine though your identity de jour. ”

    It’s true.

    Could we please have a little respect here.
    Calling me a Democrat is a bit un-nerving.

    Imparticular the Indy.

  87. Ken Hanke

    This is your proof?

    If it wasn’t against my every principle, I would say “LOL,” but it is, so I won’t. Truth is what you’re witnessing only qualifies as proof in Strokerland.

  88. Jim Shura

    It’s 3 guys at a table. Chad has proved that 3 guys can sit at a table. Most of us knew that already.

  89. Piffy!

    I hear Tim Johnson cursing, acting pompous and defensive, and speaking a mile-a-minute, but i see no ‘proof’ of his PhD in this video.

    at 6:40 he claims that people asking him for proof is ‘because i’m black”.

    Dont you guys always claim its the racist democrats who play the race card?

  90. PatD

    Looks like Chad is totally losing it…… They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa …. the happy home with trees and flowers ….

    chad-there is nothing from what i observed in that video that covers his supposed PhD. Tim Johnson just rants on for 8 minutes about his military record and how racist everyone is for asking him for proof of his claim to military service. Be that as it may, it does nothing to quell the questions regarding his supposed PhD.

    Can you direct me to the exact time where they discuss the ‘proof’ of his PhD?

    I have to say this is fun seeing you go down by defending such an obvious fraud. Not even travelah is willing to stand behind this guy.

  93. Jim Shura

    Chad is the only one to mention race on this thread.

    What proof? A simple verifiable document would suffice.

    So if you put Dr. before your name on a piece of paper you suddenly have a PhD? Gee, why didn’t I think of that?

    From now on I am Shad Marsh, PhD.

    If you have any suggestions as to what I should give myself a PhD in, I’d love to hear them.

  95. Chad Nesbitt

    Read it an weep liberals. A biased reporter saw it and the proof is the proof. Call Bill Fishburn and ask him for yourself.

    I’m starved to death. Going to da Outback before the kitchen closes. Be back to play afterwhile.

    And don’t be calling me a Democrat shadmarsh.
    You damn right wing terroist.

  96. PatD

    Chad’s obsession with the rectum is really becoming obvious :-)

  97. Piffy!

    Chad, that isn’t ‘proof’. At least from the standpoint of the video viewer, he is just holding up a piece of paper and calling it ‘proof’. It is not possible to verify said ‘proof’ by viewing the video, so how do you expect that to help?

    Do worry, this wont go away and you will be forced to eat your words. the credibility Republican party of WNC just got screwed by a big Johnson.

  98. PatD

    So, the video shows a very angry dude, obviously having a problem with the fact that he is black, showing absolutely nothing as far as proof but making a lot of noise.
    Now, if only he would learn to speak some kind of understandable English.

  99. Chad Nesbitt

    <>obviously having a problem with the fact that he is black, Now, if only he would learn to speak some kind of understandable English.<>

    You don’t like black people do you PatD?

    that will make for great quotes for future, debate, to be sure!

    Also, I believe it’s “doctorate”, not “doctrine”.

    How’s that blooming onion sitting Vinnie?

    Oh that’s right, Cranky’s not biased at all.

    I have never once made that claim — and any critic that has is either lying, or delusional. So try some other level of attack, Chadster.

  106. Ken Hanke

    I must admit it has become an “interesting” game to see how long it takes to for your moronic opinion to shine though your identity de jour.

    Just mention John Waters. It has yet to fail to send Cullen right on ’round the bend.

  107. Rob Close

    so, flat out…

    did Tim Johnson get his Doctorate from an ACCREDITED University?

    If he did, we should all apologize. His playing of the race card would be valid. And we should all be wondering why he didn’t just come clean with his valid diploma from day one.

    If he didn’t, he’s been intellectually dishonest this entire time. And playing the race card to cover up dishonesty is pathetic. And he should be chased out of town and shunned for trying to promote himself as something that he didn’t actually earn.

    Chad, this makes you look like a complete idiot. I haven’t watched the video and probably will not however there is nothing gained or lost in that. Mr Johnson needs to share with the public where he supposedly earned his Ph.D. If it is the diploma mill LaSalle, he is a lying fraud and you have given your back to it. Now, I know for a fact he did not earn a Ph.D. from the accredited LaSalle University as they do not offer the program he claims his study in.
    There is a reason for the concern. Earning a doctorate in a given profession takes a good bit of work and academic contribution. The title of Doctor is only appropriate for those who have earned it. Honorary degrees do not confer the title of Doctor nor justify it. Purchased diplomas from a shady mill not only are unworthy but in the business world are grounds for immediate termination based on falsified credentials. In other words, if Mr. Johnson worked for me, he would have been fired the day I found out about it. If this is true of him, then the Republican Party of North Carolina needs to remove him from his post. Failure to remove a fraud from such a prominent position causes serious damage to the Party’s credibility. We have enough problems with the lying opposition to have an unprincipled liar in our own midst at the top if these allegations are true (in my opinion it is looking very poor for Mr. Johnson).

    Ken said: “Just mention John Waters. It has yet to fail to send Cullen right on ‘round the bend.”

    Apparently that worked on Waters’ parents as well. My wife’s dad made the mistake of praising John’s work at a dinner party at their house. They bristled and said that his name is not mentioned in their house. The price of genius, I suppose.

    Hey now,

    Glad to see everyone chatting away, but please, desist with any name-calling (no more “jackass,” for example).

    Thank you,

    Although Chad has been using this forum to spread the sort of homophobic rhetoric that gets innocent people’s skulls kicked in, perhaps we should find something nice to say.

    For example, I certainly don’t doubt Chad’s love of a good Johnson. In fact, I have no doubt that Chad has been dreaming about playing Dr with a good Johnson for many years.

  112. “Just mention John Waters. It has yet to fail to send Cullen right on ‘round the bend.”

    Yeah that is a good technique, you could also talk about a delicious steak perhaps a “New Yawk Strip”

    “Yankee Meat” is like holy water to that particular species of moron.

    For what it’s worth, examining the etymology of the term “race card,” it is probably not wise for either side of the debate to use it. The term was originally coined to devalue and dismiss legitimate claims of racism. It perpetuates the ridiculous notion that black people spent thousands of years being oppressed, just so they could finally break out the secret race card that they all carry for emergencies. It has worked its way into common usage, but it is a toxic meme that we’d be better off without.

    There are certainly false claims of racism made at times, but we don’t need to employ the right-wing extremist rhetorical term “race card” to draw attention to those instances.

    Is Chad right, would the issue have gotten as much scrutiny if the Johnson that he is so fond of wasn’t big and black? I honestly don’t know. Nevertheless, the issue has come to light, and the question of whether Johnson really has a doctorate, or if Chad is just playing Dr with the Johnson that he admires so much, still remains. That silly video certainly he offered up as evidence didn’t prove anything.

  114. Piffy!

    It appears to me, as evidence in the video (which has like, 15 views) that Tim johnson would rather discuss the issues with his former wife instead of simply providing the proof (a quite simple task) of his PhD.

  115. Piffy!

    –as for my mention of the ‘race card’, entop, it was in direct reference to multiple statements from Chad about how liberals always ‘play the race card’. I personally dont care to much about it either way–i just found the irony irresistible. But i see the point you are making, absolutely.

    Of course, all Tim johnson has to do, is prove he has a PhD and the issue would go away.

    Hehe… not related to this really but beautiful nevertheless. Just reading about Palin resigning from office. Hey maybe Chad has a position for her with the Strokers :-)

    Sorry if it sounded like I was singling you out for using that term (PFKaP), that wasn’t my intention. I don’t think anyone is terrible for using the term because it has worked its way into the popular lexicon, so most people have used it at one time or another. I just think we would all be better off without the term because of the aforementioned reasons.

  118. Piffy!

    So, no updates from anyone about this alleged PhD from a school that doesnt offer them?

  119. contentpersephone

    apparently not, PfKap….
    rather sad about that, actually.

    on the other hand, apparently one can just declare oneself a “doctor” and no one will ever bother checking to see if that’s actually the case.

    opens up all kinds of new career possibilities for me…

  120. Piffy!

    Dr. CP-

    I guess no one at the Xpress has time to research this due to all the URTV and WPVM controversy needing to be covered for the next 6 years.

    Don Yelton, speaking about Barney Frank: “and ignore a man that was running a call service for young men for men.”

    Actually Mr. Yelton, Frank did nothing of the sort. His boyfriend did it,without his knowledge. Your homophobia is showing.

    Again Don Yelton: “What about Vance-Aycock Dinner and the Wilmington Race Riots.”

    What about them, Mr. Yelton? If you and Chad were so concerned about racism, why didn’t you speak up long before you did, or were you just waiting until it was politically expediant? Where is your protest against having an entire school named for Aycock, or was it just the dinner that fit your publicity needs? Your hypocrisy is showing as well.
