Charles Parker: Charlotte-an Week #2

Hypocrisy of DNC Week #2 - Julian Castro's grandmother won a cooking contest to make money so she could pay for the hospital bills when he and his brother were born.  She didn't depend on the government to pay the freight.  She didn't expect the government to pay the freight.  She knew it was the responsibility of her family.  She became an entrepreneur so her family would not be in debt.

Gaffe of DNC Week #2 - It was floated to the media today that the DNC is considering moving President Obama's speech to an indoor venue.  The real reason is that they are having trouble filling the seats. The reason they gave was because of potential inclement weather.  However, the forecast is calling for scattered storms with a 30% chance of rain.  Oops...

Oddity of DNC Week #2 - Number of times the word "Obama" is mentioned in the Democrat platform: over 200.  Number of times the word "God" is mentioned in the Democrat platform: 0.

  1. You are a liar. I watched the DNC live, there were plenty of God bless america's being said.

    Pathetic.

    1. What is pathetic is that you do not know the difference between the party's platform and speeches from the podium.

  4. Best point made so far:

    If The GOP and Romney are able to follow through on their plans to repeal Obamacare, then children who are benefitting from the removal of lifetime caps will be at risk for losing coverage.

    How many times do you need to "God" in order to justify that?

  5. To anyone with a basic understanding of the language, a forecast of "scattered storms, with a 30% chance of rain" is a spot-on example of "potential inclement weather". I'll assume your "oops" is an apology for being a fact-twisting illiterate.

    1. The weather forecast for Charlotte Thursday night according to weather.com is "isolated thunderstorms with a 30% chance of rain." I live in Central Florida. If we went inside every time we had that forecast the beaches would be empty, Disney World would be closed, and there would be no rockets launching from the Cape.

  6. Why is this piece of crap the top story on Google News this morning? Time to change my daily news source.

  7. So the democrats are wrong when they rely and on the government and hypocrites when they don't? And they should risk a 30% chance of getting rained out? And what does mentioning God have to do with ANYTHING???

  8. Do you really think GOD is so insecure as to need the DNC to invoke His name? I don't know about yours but mine doesn't really care.

    You must be a psychic to know the REAL reason the outdoor event was moved indoors. Or is it possible you are a knee jerk rightwing devotee?

  9. Oddity of DNC Week #4: Paul Ryan counted the mentions of "Obama" and "God" and got completely different (though equally meaningless) results.

  10. Yes. Let's do some fact checking, Google, before posting such biased baloney.

  11. Too bad they could not fill the stadium. We knew that for weeks in advance here in Charlotte. Best of luck filling the 20000 seat time warner arena!

  12. Given we have a separation of church and state that was the clear intention of the Founding Fathers...why should anyone be counting the number of references to God in a political convention speech?

  13. 1) Democrats are not against entrepreneurship or earning money, so your silly example is not hypocrisy. Paul Ryan IS a hypocrite for bashing government social programs even though he used Social Security money to go to college. Michelle Bachmann is a hypocrite because she collects farm subsidies while she screams about people who collect government money.

    2) Yes, we know it upsets conservatives that we are able to predict the weather thanks to NASA, NOAA, and other government programs. Yes, we know the GOP wants to cut the funding for these programs. They prefer faith-based weather prediction.

    3) The Taliban and Al Qaeda mention God a lot also. We have separation of Church and State in the USA. We don't need a GOP theocracy, thanks anyway.

  14. Hypocrisy:
    Claiming to be a conservative who has been suckling the no-god-loving-government tit for 30 years, as an "educator".

    Gaffe:
    Google News picked this as "news".

    Oddity:
    Mr. Parker is not an employee of FOX News.

    1. Mr. Anonymous - once again you are wrong. I have not been a teacher for 30 years. I have worked in the private sector, I have served in ministry and other donation-funded social services, and I have worked in government contracts. If it was about all about suckling, I certainly would have chosen a better cash cow.

  15. Practically every speaker ended with "God bless you and God bless the United States (of America)" --as a platform item, I'm not certain democrats have shown enough deference to Christians who feel it's okay to vote for a candidate whose platform is so contradictory to their Christian tenets in many stark ways, but 'God' has been invoked.

  16. Why is this garbage on top of Google news? I pity this guy's students. Point 1 is disingenuous and insulting, points 2 and 3 flat out lies. B+ for fiction, D- for effort and factual accuracy, teacher.

    1. 1 - just relaying the story the mayor proudly spoke about. Oh that's right, providing commentary about liberal speeches is automatically insulting. I'm surprised you didn't accuse me of racism.

      2 - The story is all over the place. I guess the liberal media is a lying about the move indoors as well.

      3 - Factual - go and count 'em if you like.

    2. Let's start with 3...that there were zero references to God in that evening at the DNC. Let's even be fair, and say "god bless you and the USA" at the end of a speech doesn't count (since almost every major speech ended with that...)

      Let's use Fox News, so you can be sure of the transcript not having any liberal bias...wait...what is that we see in Julian Castro's speech..."every night she prayed to God". Third paragraph? Oops....

      You, sir, cannot count to one, let alone beyond. I pity your students.

      Irrespective, your apparent belief that one should have to pass a religious test to get into this government is against the wishes of the founding fathers, and only an ignorant person could claim otherwise...perhaps one who cannot count to one....

    3. Let me see if I can explain this again - since evidently you were absent the day they covered this in civics class.

      The platform is the document that the party produces at the convention to set out its beliefs and priorities. It is not the "stage" from which speeches are given.

      Since you must have been out yesterday stealing Romney-Ryan yard signs and missed the news: the word "God" was not in the platform - which President Obama had read and approved. After the firestorm of comments, Obama asked that the word be inserted. A voice vote on the convention floor brought boos and hisses from delegates who did not want the word "God" in the document. It is now in there - despite belief that the floor motion actually failed.

      And since you evidently missed history class as well - the founders secured the right of freedom of religion to keep government out of our faith, not to keep our faith out of government.

    That was an Anonymous mess. It seems that you have decided on a career as a rhino or an elephant. You will certainly be developing thick skin after these Anons are done.
