Member vs. Member "Loser Leaves The Forum" Election Match

Mon Nov 05, 2012 9:03 am

In the spirit of the old wrestling matches "Loser Leaves Town",
I thought we could do something similar here. Pick your candidate
to win and if the person (member) you call out excepts the match
you are honor bound to the terms set in your challenge. Let's keep
it somewhat friendly, remember those wrastlers from yesteryear
would always show back up. You have to have your challenge in
and accepted on or before 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time November 6, 2012.
Open to everyone - everywhere.

I call out drjohncarpenter.
I call the winner Romney.
Terms Loser leaves the forum
for Four Weeks.

Is he brave enough to accept?
Does he have confidence in Obama?


Set your own reasonable terms
people.

Alright, but I really do hope that Obama isn't casting some sort of voodoodoodoo spell on people, because it seems like he gets away with a hell of a lot of cra%! 8)

BINGO! I accept!

__________________________________

My amended call out to drjohncarpenter

I call the winner Romney
Terms the loser can't post on the forum
for Four Weeks.*

Since this is an additional bet to the one I accepted with Promiseland,
My part of the bet, if I lose will be to not log in for the first four week
period. The second part if Doc isn't afraid is only concerning posts.
You or I may log in, but may not post for four weeks.*

Promiseland was brave enough, are you Doc?
Here's you chance to shut my pie hole for eight* weeks if you're man enough.

Ian has too many weeks. I call out Blue River.

I call out Blue River
Obama wins, you're out for four weeks.

Terms: loser leaves for 4 weeks, and if, God forbid, it's me (and Barry), during which time she tries to avoid jumping off a very nice Spanish-tiled roof in the O.C. on Wed. morning.

And, additional terms, if Romney loses: Ian doesn't mention Rush, ANYMORE! (And you can save Blue that way! :D)

Do you accept? I have FAITH! And HOPE! AND LOVE!!!

{I removed Chris Rock's delightful spoof on account of it offended Blue's tender sensibilities. Go over to YouTube, and enjoy. Besides, Blue quoted it, including the video, so enjoy! I know he laughed, but he won't tell us!)

You'd better win, 'rack! You had better win, or I'm hosed!

It doesn't? Aw, gee, something ELSE to be depressed about! :smt002

BTW, the mathematics of this is challenging! How many weeks, Ian? I called you out, but changed it to Blue. You would be "doing time" too much!

So, Blue, are you tough enough? 4 weeks on the net is like FOUR YEARS! (Geez, four weeks without FECC? I'd go crazy. And I'd take a week out of it, if I was on vacation, to give updates, and then resume on return.)

Also, if anyone is ill, or has a family member who is ill or in an accident or something, you can stop the clock and let us know how you are. And then resume. That's fair, right?

In any event, it's time to say "I guarantee it!" Like Joe Namath said about beating the Colts. You gotta have faith! And "if you got it, flaunt it!"

I just despair for your East Coast at the moment....one minute on our news items, we see how it's getting cold over there and people are still without power and water, then the next minute a news item comes on whereby the reporters will tell us how many millions have been spent THAT DAY on the election campaign. I am not naive enough to think that disasters aren't allowed for in any countries budget, but I can't help but think about the people without their homes at this time. Australia has had it's own share of bad things happen, and we, as do Americans bounce back, but at the time it's happening there is so much despair around and seeing the worried faces on the kids is horrific.
Elections are happening all around the world at any given time, some of them aren't as democratic as elections in our own countries and a lot of people die during these so called elections...I just can't for the life of me see how fair it is that one person may or may not win an election because of the amount of money is poured into it.
As I have already said previously, I certainly hope Mr. Obama wins this one....as he is a great friend of this country...and an ally of Australia certainly wins on all counts.


You are correct. The storm and its aftermath is the most important thing. And money has totally corrupted everything this year.

A new storm is building in the Atlantic, and will hit from Wednesday to Friday, in the same area! It's just unbelievable. One hopes the water will be cooler, and knock the storm out some. It's hard to imagine.

Thanks for the reality check.

(But a bet is a bet. Blue?)

Actually, it does. I can't tell you how many times I've asked non-Americans to stay out of our business on this board and every time I'm told "what happens in America effects the rest of the world"

Actually most of the political discussions on this board are started by people that aren't from the United States.

Just the other day PaulSweeney started one.

A few months back ColinB started a thread about the United States healthcare system.

A lot of the people that discuss U.S. politics on this board aren't American.

There is a lot of interest in U.S. politics and the presidential election on this board from non americans.

You seem to be in the minority Carolynlm.

I pick Obama, and I will take all challengers at four weeks each.

Just quote this message back to challenge me, if you want a piece of the action.

If I lose, I'll just drop in to say farewell and total up my "sentence."

But I'm putting my faith in America -- and probabilities -- on this one.

Terms: Loser leaves the forum for 4 weeks.

Although 4 weeks will be a very short time to be free from his disturbing religious bigotry.

"Voodoo." "Casting spells." So, this Prez has his "mojo workin'"? What's he? Muddy Waters? He's the president, not a Delta Bluesman. He grew up in Hawaii, not Mississippi, before going to sweet home Chicago.

Aloha!

Now that's the biggest stretch I've ever heard!

When you call everything racism, then nothing is. Like the little boy who cried wolf.
