It was 35 years ago today that Ted Kennedy murdered Mary Jo Kopechne at
Chappaquiddick, Massachusetts in July 26th, 1969.
Mary Jo would have been 65 years of age this year.
Teddy Kennedy today is the "Conscience of the Democratic Party"
Teddy Kennedy who left Miss Kopechne behind to die in the waters
underneath the Edgartown Bridge, Chappaquiddick, Massachusetts.
Teddy Kennedy was cruising drunk.
The same Teddy Kennedy that calls other people liars.
Interesting. If a left-leaning message goes up, it's the most popular
thread in the group within half a day. Something right-leaning goes up,
and no one cares to discuss it other than one comment that it doesn't
belong (the left-leaning threads get those, too), and one person
lamenting that there is no discussion, implying that the folks on the
right aren't talking because they're not allowed.
There's no censorship going on here. No one is sitting someplace killing
right-leaning discussions, while letting left-leaning discussions
through. But after nearly a day, that's as much as the folks on the
right have mustarded-up.
Newsflash: There isn't more discussion on this thread because it's not
interesting, not because of some left-wing conspiracy to keep the
right-wing from posting. And in the those liberal "screed" threads, no
one minds conservatives joining in with their viewpoint. (Note: Just

You want to expound on how Ted's mistake makes him unfit to be a leader?
Go ahead. It might help if you bring up some more recent examples.
Certainly he's done something you didn't like more recently than one
event 35 years ago. Give your opinion. Discuss away with the rest of the
community. Just don't kid yourself into believing that you're not
allowed, but other people are allowed. Everyone has the same ability to
post off-topic discussions, even if it isn't the most popular viewpoint.
Yes, this thread is off-topic. But there is no liberal conspiracy
keeping it from taking off. If it's not taking off like more liberal
threads have, it's because it doesn't interest as many members of the
community. People don't have as much to say. But no one is preventing
anyone who does have something to say from saying it. It is not a
liberal conspiracy that's silencing other people.
You are mistaken. Please note threads titled "Bush intel"' "wowowo"'
and "Home Depot politics". A vast number of recent posts here deal
exclusively with political views.
Perhaps what you really meant to say was, "Unless it parrots the left
wing line, it's off topic."
