    Is "Broccoli" a code word?
    That's the first thing I thought of when conservative asswipes brought up broccoli again.

    I thought it was strange back in 1990 when GHWB expressed his dislike of it.


    It's still strange that conservatives are talking about it. Why broccoli? Is it code?

    BTW, I like broccoli. It's very good for you.

    Bush 41 hated Broccoli too.

    Albert Broccoli was the producer on many of the James Bond movies...of which some dealt with battling Soviet spies and super villians.

    I'm beginning to see why the DUmmies think that it's some kind of secret code.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    This is all about vegetable racism and how many vegetables are code for racial or other identity topics. For example, peas and carrots are references to male genitalia, and actually refer to gay men (Parsley refers to lesbians). Cauliflower is code for white people, potatoes are Irish, Brussels Sprouts are Belgians, Olives are Greeks, Beets are Russians (and sugar beets are Russian mail order brides), Garlic is French, Asparagus refers to Jews (apparently, you snip off the tip), Dates are Arabs, parsnips Lithuanians, Rutabagas are Europeans in general and bok choi refers to Chinese. Thus, a person of Eurasian descent could be referred to as a bokchoi-rutabaga mix, and the UN is a salad bar.
    And anyone who believes this idiocy has rotting eggplant between their ears.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Ok. I'm probably nuts but I really like this post.

    That's it.
