THey retrieved the capsule with the monkey still alive. What is the problem?
They claim they did. The Russians claimed that the dog they sent into space was euthanized before oxygen ran out several days later. The truth is that the dog died from overheating within hours. Iran isn't likely to report failure if they can help it.
If they were successful? Good for them. I didn't say there was necessarily a problem.
Wait, so someone compares Bush to a monkey, I turn the tables and say if we were to compare Obama to a monkey that would be racist, I am the one showing "hate?" How truly pathetic. While the last line I wrote was a joke - how Obama is worshipped and don't you dare say anything negative about him - what you wrote shows how true it really is. Attack anyone who does not "goose step" with the Democrat party line, while repeating exactly what is written/said about anyone who sits on the other side of the isle towards a Democrat, and you are a racist hater.
I know how it works. Try to shut down free speech when I use the very words (or in this case, a comment on a picture) that people speak/write about one person, and turn it towards another by calling everything that does not glorify Obama racist. Problem is, I don't play that game. So whine and claim I am racist all you want. It shows even more how intolerant you really are.
rfirth, why is comparing bush to a monkey OK and not OK to criticize o'bama? is it because he is white and o'bama is only half white? both of them are illegal immigrants anyway, at least from my point of view. my family is in part native american and we never gave you permission to be here. like yours, our immigration system and border control stank & we gave you amnesty. look how that worked out for us.
You guys. It's simple. Be reasonable. I'm on your side, but you're too blind to see that. This is just a special case. I'm not saying you can't criticize Obama. Go ahead. I'm not going to call you racist for criticizing Obama. Nobody is. Stop saying people call Republicans racist solely because they are criticizing Obama. It's not true and you're wasting your time. Seriously. Chill out. I never called you racist. I have a sense of humor. I can laugh at a good Obama joke.
Comparing Bush to a monkey isn't racist. But comparing Obama to a monkey is. Why? Think about it. Why is it funny to call Bush a monkey? Because that picture is funny, and some people think he's stupid. I'm not saying I agree with it. But it doesn't go any deeper than that. Now, why is it racist to call Obama a monkey? I'm not going to spell it out to you. Perhaps you should look up the term "porch monkey". Calling any person of African descent a monkey is incredibly racist. It has a different connotation. That's why.
It's like doing blackface. You just don't do it. And it really has nothing to do with Obama or his affiliation with the Democratic party.
