Oh I see, so "more than double" 5.56% means "nearly treble" 5.56%!

BTW, Ron Paul is not the only one worried that he won't be able to hold a speech or get on the ballot at Tampa. His supporters are also asking themselves the question "[W]here is the 5th state we need, now that the campaign has thrown away AK, ND, etc.?"
http://www.dailypaul.com/241022/getting ... e-virginia
It is mildly interesting to follow the discussion in the comments section.
A sample of which are:

"Without the Lawyers for RP suit being successful we can kiss this whole Paul '12 thing goodbye, because we will NOT have five states without NV, OK or AZ. So sad. And no one seems to really much care"

"The evidence is mounting daily that we are not going to be permitted to nominate Dr. Paul!"

"Ron admits we won't have 5 states!
http://www.dailypaul.com/241204/ron-pau ... n-msnbcs...
Listen beginning at 3:15." (Which I also linked to above).

"Day by day it becomes more apparent that we will NOT have the five states needed"

They obviously don't follow the real delegate count com enough.

That's just someone's uninformed opinion. And you're implying that the majority of Ron Paul's supporters think that...but they DO NOT.

You definitely have a knack for misquoting people, don't you? Ron Paul NEVER stated in that interview, "We won't have five states!", or anything close to that.

Also, what part of THIS ELECTION IS STILL ONGOING AND VOTES ARE STILL BEING COUNTED, do you not understand?

But then again, this is just you being you... :wink:

97.1% reporting, Romney wins with 93% (194, 503), Paul 4.7% ( 9,771).

Some delegates are still to be selected, or in Paul's case deselected (see Massachusetts)

There are several states that are STILL selecting delegates and are STILL in the election process, not just Utah or Massachusetts. And in case you clueless wonders didn't realize, Utah is Mormon country, so of course Romney is going to win this particular state.


At this rate, you guys will NEVER learn. Oh well...

Funny I still see inverted commas.
Perhaps glasses are the solution rather than LSD.
BTW, I edited the above 3 times, but that was a) all done before you made your first reply b) to add more quotes. The inverted commas are even quoted in your post!

I'll assume the words "lying sack of shit" are your attempt at friendly banter.

I don't expect friendly banter from Disco Boy, let alone anything that remotely resembles intellectual substance.

Disco Boy is nothing more than a big empty head.

Ssssssshhhhhhhh.....don't tell Disco Boy-co Boy-co Boy-co Boy-co Boy......

I hear an echo. It must be Disco Boys head nearby. :mrgreen:


Next January, when either Romney gets sworn in, or Obama resumes duties, Disco Dawg will still be wagging his tail wildly with his tongue a wigglin' around his snout rabidly barking, "Ron Paul won six states-Ron Paul won six states-Ron Paul won six states-pant pant pant".


Perhaps he's holding out for some after-the-election-crazy-Ron Paul-supporter-mass-suicide on the end of the Mayan calender this December.

More Ron Paul supporters who are worried that they don't have plurality in five states:

"With the uncertainty of a few states that could be the ultimate determination of whether or not we get 5 states to nominate Ron Paul I have been looking over the rules of the states that have yet to elect national delegates. Obviously we want as many delegates as we can and I pray that Oregon and Idaho vastly favors Paul. Unfortunately they won't help us get our 5."
http://www.dailypaul.com/241659/nebraska-1-of-our-5

"Ron Paul Told Morning Joe that He Does NOT HAVE 5 States!!

Ron Paul on Morning Joe stated that the Campaign did not have the 5 States yet to Nominate Him and Give Him a Prime Time Speaking Slot.

Listen to the video in the thread!!!

If the AP is right then the Official Campaign Strategists are misleading Ron, which of course would not be the first time!!!

Idaho and Oregon are critical this weekend!!! We need to get a plurality of votes in at least one of them!!!"

According to this...

http://projects.wsj.com/campaign2012/delegates/

Romney has a total of 1512 delegates and Paul has 158 commited so far.


How about Disco Boys fuzzy math skills? :lol:

Uh...got anymore uh' that fancy airithmatik Disco Einstein? uh... :lol:

The original source for SPACEBROTHER's figures above is the Associated Press (http://hosted.ap.org/interactives/2012/ ... e-tracker/), who calculate their estimates by the following methodology: "Delegate numbers for each state are after the application of penalties and include unpledged delegates. In some states where actual delegates are assigned and bound to support candidates by multi-step procedures, the AP uses results from local caucuses to calculate the number of national delegates each candidate eventually will win and assigns those delegates at the end of the caucus. Additionally, the AP interviews unpledged delegates to determine their preferences and includes them in the total; these national party leaders have the freedom to back any candidate of their choosing and may make the decision about which candidate to support at any time during the primary process, and they may or may not tell reporters of their decisions." (http://projects.wsj.com/campaign2012/delegates/)

The source for Disco Boy's signature figures is http://thereal2012delegatecount.com/, who calculate their estimates by consulting various blogs (e.g. this completely neutral one from Ron Paul campaigner Doug Wead http://dougwead.wordpress.com/2012/06/1 ... -arkansas/) and news reports from the fair and balanced Fox 19 channel.

And...
"Ron Paul has said he will not be the nominee come Tampa. As much as I wanted Ron Paul to be our president, it pains me to say that if we want the best approach to continue our message and reform the GOP then we need to get behind Romney unfortunately." (Note inverted commas). From Ron Paul campaigner Doug Wead's blog in the comments (not from Doug Wead).
http://dougwead.wordpress.com/2012/06/1 ... -arkansas/

And...
there are only five states in which a selection of delegates could play a role in deciding whether Ron Paul gets the requisite plurality to even get his name on the ballot at Tampa. At the moment, according to the AP figures, he's got 3.
In which states could he still get a plurality of delegates?
The options are...
Alaska (3 delegates still to be decided, really unlikely that it'll go to Paul, tho').
Nebraska (32 delegates still to be decided. Romney got 71% in the primary, Paul 10%).
Montana (25 delegates still to be decided. Romney won the state and it's winner take all here, i.e. they're bound).
Louisana (30 delegates still to be decided. Theoretically possible for Paul, though Romney is already using strong arm tactics to turn out the Paulites).
Pennsylvania (39 delegates still to be decided. Hardly any chance for Paul, at least according to Paulites).
So, as many Paulites have noticed it's not a question of whether Paul or Romney will win the nomination at Tampa, it's a question of whether Ron Paul will get on the ballot at all (or even hold a 15 minute speech).

Funny, then you must have dyslexia. Because what you quoted are NOT inverted commas. :roll:


As for all the other metaphysical gibberish you two puked out earlier today:

~ http://thereal2012delegatecount.com/ is a trustworthy, fair & balanced site
~ the Associated Press & wsj sites' delegates count is laughable for a variety of reasons, mainly because it shows Ron Paul's count at only 158
~ you guys seemingly STILL don't understand that votes are STILL being counted because this election process is STILL ongoing, so posting links that show he doesn't have a clear-cut plurality in 5 states, especially since there are more than a few states in contention, is POINTLESS
~ and AGAIN, this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqLrfZz3rUc confirms that there's a very good chance ALL Republican delegates are UNBOUND
~ I'm perfectly aware that Ron Paul probably won't get the Republican Nomination (though, it's possible that could change) but what I was clearly showing you two clueless wonders is that he's FAR more popular now than he was 4 year ago

and finally...

~ you two should really stop lying, misquoting and misinterpreting statements & facts...because it makes me much less interested in discussing things with you at length

Since you obviously seem to need a dictionary definition:
in·vert·ed comma (n-vûrtd)
n. Chiefly British
A quotation mark.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/inverted+comma
(Wow, only one meaning!)

I'm off to France, for a 4 week holiday (teachers, eh, don't you love 'em?) and you'll be pleased to hear that I'll only have limited access to the internet, so I'm afraid you'll have to play on alone with SPACEBROTHER. I am, however, concerned that you are not presenting your own case in the best possible light, so here are a few themes you might consider useful to your own arguments.
1 Events like Ron Paul's victory in gaining a plurality of delegates in Iowa should be played up more.
2.Stress the manipulation of the delegation selection process by Romney (c.f. Massachusetts).
3. There is evidence of stuffing of ballot boxes which indicates that the entire election process was illegal. You've mentioned this, but in no great detail.
4. The continued existence of the real delegate count com (and it's handy paypal button) is entirely down to the "Federal Lawsuit which has been filed claiming NO DELEGATES ARE BOUND!" Stress the importance of this lawsuit and play up the chances of its success.
5. Above all, dictate the agenda; you should be the one offering information. Constant angry "debunking" that fails to debunk only makes your arguments appear weak.

I'll leave you with the Walrus and the Carpenter from "Through the Looking Glass". Appropriately enough, it's recited by Tweedledee and is, according to some interpretations, (e.g. here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/booksbl ... ftheweek14) actually an indictment of the kind of capitalism espoused by Ron Paul, one of the major reasons I find him objectionable. Walrus and Carpenter = Capitalist Bosses, Oysters = Workers.

" `The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright --
And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.

The moon was shining sulkily,
Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
After the day was done --
"It's very rude of him," she said,
"To come and spoil the fun!"

The sea was wet as wet could be,
The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because
No cloud was in the sky:
No birds were flying over head --
There were no birds to fly.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand:
"If this were only cleared away,"
They said, "it would be grand!"

"If seven maids with seven mops
Swept it for half a year,
Do you suppose," the Walrus said,
"That they could get it clear?"
"I doubt it," said the Carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear.

"O Oysters, come and walk with us!"
The Walrus did beseech.
"A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk,
Along the briny beach:
We cannot do with more than four,
To give a hand to each."

The eldest Oyster looked at him.
But never a word he said:
The eldest Oyster winked his eye,
And shook his heavy head --
Meaning to say he did not choose
To leave the oyster-bed.

But four young oysters hurried up,
All eager for the treat:
Their coats were brushed, their faces washed,
Their shoes were clean and neat --
And this was odd, because, you know,
They hadn't any feet.

Four other Oysters followed them,
And yet another four;
And thick and fast they came at last,
And more, and more, and more --
All hopping through the frothy waves,
And scrambling to the shore.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
Conveniently low:
And all the little Oysters stood
And waited in a row.

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes -- and ships -- and sealing-wax --
Of cabbages -- and kings --
And why the sea is boiling hot --
And whether pigs have wings."

"But wait a bit," the Oysters cried,
"Before we have our chat;
For some of us are out of breath,
And all of us are fat!"
"No hurry!" said the Carpenter.
They thanked him much for that.

"A loaf of bread," the Walrus said,
"Is what we chiefly need:
Pepper and vinegar besides
Are very good indeed --
Now if you're ready Oysters dear,
We can begin to feed."

"But not on us!" the Oysters cried,
Turning a little blue,
"After such kindness, that would be
A dismal thing to do!"
"The night is fine," the Walrus said
"Do you admire the view?

"It was so kind of you to come!
And you are very nice!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"Cut us another slice:
I wish you were not quite so deaf --
I've had to ask you twice!"

"It seems a shame," the Walrus said,
"To play them such a trick,
After we've brought them out so far,
And made them trot so quick!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"The butter's spread too thick!"

"I weep for you," the Walrus said.
"I deeply sympathize."
With sobs and tears he sorted out
Those of the largest size.
Holding his pocket handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.

"O Oysters," said the Carpenter.
"You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?"
But answer came there none --
And that was scarcely odd, because
They'd eaten every one."

Anybody who still thinks Ron Paul's failure to win is anything more than a loss, is a McRib short of an extra value meal.



Incidently, my response in the post immediately before the last one, would more appropriatley be "we would be so lucky" in regards to DogDoo Boy' quoted commentary.


Ron Paul lost. He doesn't have near the number of delegates or supporters that the fictitious numbers guy randomly pulls out of his rectum.

So, according to you, you've won. Why go on?

One of the things I really like about good old Ron Paul is his position on gun control.

FIREARMS REFRESHER COURSE

1. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

2. A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

3. Colt: The original point and click interface.

4. Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.

5. If guns are outlawed, can we use swords?

6. If guns cause crime, then pencils cause misspelled words.

7. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.

8. If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

9. Those who trade liberty for security have neither.

10. The United States Constitution (c)1791. All Rights Reserved.

11. What part of "shall not be infringed" do you not understand?

12. The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others.

13. 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.

14. Guns only have two enemies; rust and politicians.

15. Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety.

16. You don't shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.

17. 911: Government sponsored Dial-a-Prayer.

18. Assault is a behavior, not a device.

19. Criminals love gun control; it makes their jobs safer.

20. If guns cause crime, then matches cause arson.

21. Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.

22. You have only the rights you are willing to fight for.

23. Enforce the gun control laws we ALREADY have; don't make more.

24. When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.

25. The American Revolution would never have happened with gun control.


"Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not." ~ Thomas Jefferson















Yeah, I'm just hanging out not working today it's 108 fucking degress outside and my car gets hot when I drive it, so I thought I'd just drop this down at the Frank Zappa forum for all those lovely folks down there, because I now that's somewhere I can get to pretty easy and cool.





















RON PAUL! :wink:

Listen beginning at 3:15." (Which I also linked to above).



Since you obviously seem to need a dictionary definition:
in·vert·ed comma (n-vûrtd)
n. Chiefly British
A quotation mark.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/inverted+comma
(Wow, only one meaning!)

I'm off to France, for a 4 week holiday (teachers, eh, don't you love 'em?) and you'll be pleased to hear that I'll only have limited access to the internet, so I'm afraid you'll have to play on alone with SPACEBROTHER. I am, however, concerned that you are not presenting your own case in the best possible light, so here are a few themes you might consider useful to your own arguments.
1 Events like Ron Paul's victory in gaining a plurality of delegates in Iowa should be played up more.
2.Stress the manipulation of the delegation selection process by Romney (c.f. Massachusetts).
3. There is evidence of stuffing of ballot boxes which indicates that the entire election process was illegal. You've mentioned this, but in no great detail.
4. The continued existence of the real delegate count com (and it's handy paypal button) is entirely down to the "Federal Lawsuit which has been filed claiming NO DELEGATES ARE BOUND!" Stress the importance of this lawsuit and play up the chances of its success.
5. Above all, dictate the agenda; you should be the one offering information. Constant angry "debunking" that fails to debunk only makes your arguments appear weak.


You STILL don't understand what an inverted comma is or looks like, do you? Maybe someone here can show you? :roll:

You know, maybe on your 4 week holiday in France, you'll actually spend time researching things better (I just recently spent time in LA for a week, though I was having fun instead :wink: ). Things like the English language, how to be less verbose or how to stop misquoting, misinterpreting and lying (for example, claiming I haven't backed up points with info or evidence, etc., despite the fact I mostly have). And of course, last but not least and in no particular order, we all hope you learn how to stop being too inferential and utterly metaphysical.

But only time will tell...:wink:

You STILL don't understand what Ron Paul represents, personally, politically or even intellectually, do ya? Oh well.

You know, there must be an echo in here because I've stated this many times before but I guess I'll have to state it AGAIN: RP himself did/does not expect to win the Republican nomination. But he expected to gain supporters and he did so with flying colours...since he's at least DOUBLED his support base since 2008. That WAS/IS one of his goals. And he IS successful. The day before the Republican Convention in Tampa, the RP campaign is holding a free rally at The USF Sun Dome (over 10,000 seats). Do you think it'll be fuller than ANY event taken place there since it opened in 1980? I do. But this couldn't possibly mean Ron Paul is successful, could it?! :wink:

Besides the part about me winning, because I was right all along... :mrgreen: ... the question you ask is precisely my point for starting this thread in the first place. The guy lost. Why go on?

I think DooDoo Boy and A rope Zombie missed the memo, so you might want to ask them the same questiion.
