I never get out the boat. Where are the adventuresome explorers willing brave putrid swamps teeming with flying sharks and alligators with laser death rays on their heads?

Steward, I’d like a mint julep, if you please. I’ll be on the stern observation deck.

 
 

wow…put the crack pipe down, dvh!

 
 

I’ve always felt that pasty, middle-class white guys were the best experts to comment on the needs of the black community and the role of racism in society.

Interestingly, pasty middle-class white guys are also the best commentators on the status of women and the experience of the poor, but should only comment on the rights of gay people if they’re straight.

 
 

Ital Tagfail is one of many things that make you so lovable, bbfk. My weakness is Nymfails. And speling.

 
 

Sadly, No!, V.D. Hanson.

GARDENDALE, Ala. (AP) — A powerful Republican leader in the Alabama Senate apologized Tuesday for referring to blacks as “aborigines.”

Sen. Scott Beason of Gardendale said his comments “were careless and unnecessary” and he wants to set things right. Democrats said an apology is not enough and he ought to step down from his leadership role.

mango:

So far Al Gore and Sen. John Glenn have not suggested that Obama is adopting Nazi or Brownshirt tactics, as they alleged of Bush.

uh…p’raps al and john haven’t, but everyfuckingone else on the right has…

 
 

Huh.

What does that even mean?

Fenwick, have your butler prepare my Mangomobile. I’m going in.

 
 

A powerful Republican leader in the Alabama Senate apologized Tuesday for referring to blacks as “aborigines.

That is almost worse than the original offence. “Oops. My bad, y’all! No hard feelings, right?” Or was it one of those, “I’m sorry if you were offended.” nonpologies?

Unless, of course, the guy showed up for the apology wearing an actual hairshirt and literally flagellating himself with a cat-o-nine-tails, in which case, good for him!

 
 

Oh my God.

With a shorter like that, I don’t think I can even brave looking out of the boat.

 
 

Before the age of Obama, I don’t recall that some members of the Black Caucus were so ready to invite political opponents to “go straight to hell,” or to allege that they were veritable murderers eager to lynch blacks and restore slavery.

o, rly? i bet others can recall it just fine…

 
 

(Should Obama try to emulate the way he thinks gays and Jews talk in his next address to them?)

Yes. It’d be funny, with all the meshuggeneh and the faaaaaaabulous.

 
 

flagellating himself with a cat-o-nine-tails

Bring out your dead.

 
 

So far Al Gore and Sen. John Glenn have not suggested that Obama is adopting Nazi or Brownshirt tactics, as they alleged of Bush.

Maybe that’s because the Bush team actually did, ya know, adopt Nazi and brownshirt tactics like waterboarding.

After all, we put Nazis to death for it because it was considered vile torture, yet the Bush administration acted as if waterboarding were as harmless as running through a sprinkler in summertime.

So, um, yeah. Kinda the same.

Of course, Bush’s policies only led to the deaths of 300K or so innocent people In Iraq and Afghanistan (which is on the really low end of available numbers), so he’s got a way to go to match You Know Who.

also, too…what does this
In the current racial circus, the president of the United States, in addressing an assembly of upscale black professionals and political leaders, adopts the style of a Southern Baptist preacher of the 1960s. He alters his cadences and delivery to both berate and gin up the large audience — posing as a messianic figure who will “march” them out to speak truth to power.

have to do with libs being mean to gw? or racism? and i will bet you a shitton of doughnuts that there is plenty of footage of gw doing his ‘aw shucks, ma’am…i’m just a poor texas boy…’ shtick to his texas fanboi base…

Wait, so that long description you gave of stereotypical preaching is accurate or is it the way Obama thinks it’s done or is it the way you think that he thinks that… Does Obama even think that there is a “way gays and Jews talk?” I’m willing to bet that he holds to far fewer stereotypes than you, VD.

We need to clamp down on this perpetuation of stereotypes. I’m all for clamped, Mary.

 
 

Duhduhduhduhduhduhduh MAN-GOES!

In the current racial circus, the president of the United States, in addressing an assembly of upscale black professionals and political leaders, adopts the style of a Southern Baptist preacher of the 1960s.

Huh. Wasn’t expecting the first sentence to be a dog-whistle on Martin Luther King Jr. Oh, we are in for a bumpy ride aren’t we?

Also, citation needed, because I’ve heard Obama speaking to every audience known to man and I’m pretty damn sure that he can’t even do an impression of gospel preacher 60s or otherwise. He has one gear, professorial and the closest he gets to the high-flying passion has been the emotion of “struggling through mild disappointment”. So, thanks wingnut for in the first line in your treatise of why you are not racist but Obama is giving us a dog whistle that views MLK in the negative and a racist knee-jerk that views all black speech as inherently interchangable.

He alters his cadences and delivery to both berate and gin up the large audience — posing as a messianic figure who will “march” them out to speak truth to power.

Hey, if we keep saying this then maybe the easily swayed moderates will believe there is some similarity in liberals being excited about what the first black president represented in our society and 30+ years of the right literally deifying its political leaders in every way possible and the attempt to argue for the return of the Divine Right of Kings.

In response, the omnipresent Rep. Maxine Waters goes public yet again, to object that the president has no right to rally blacks in this way, when he does not adopt similar tones of admonishment with Jews and gays.

Hmm, doesn’t sound so messianic. Actually sounds critical, kinda like Bill Crosby admonishing the black community from the safety of his cozy sweaters and economic privilege. I’d ask how you were hoping to reconcile these two sentences, but I suspect the answer is up your ass and I really don’t need to see that.

(Should Obama try to emulate the way he thinks gays and Jews talk in his next address to them?)

Aw, isn’t that cute.

No one tell him that Obama has done worse directly at a fundraiser to the gay community*. But sure, let me pretend that a president urging action that a crowd would naturally want to support is totally a slap in the face and much worse than that.

Huh, I’m only a paragraph in. This looks to be a long one.

* In serious mode, my main problem with that incident isn’t that “Obama sold us out Eleventy One!” but rather there really was no reason for him to not delay or cancel the fundraiser if that was what he was going to say. He should have at least been able to do the math and note that giving a bad speech at a fundraiser would cost him more in funds than the short-term effect of canceling or rescheduling it. Especially since this was coming off a brief period where Obama had been mending fences with the gay community and had really been starting to drain the bad blood. And it was just so preventable.

Herman Cain won the Florida straw poll

He hasn’t won a primary election, but look at how well he polls!

Didn’t the GOP spend all of 2008 whining that the “Bradley Effect” was an ironclad law of the universe?

 
 

I think crap of this nature was discussed at Edroso’s place and Balloon Juice recently, how conservatives think that Obama has some sort of crisis with black voters, even though his approval ratings there are like 80-85%.

Isn’t it funny how the conservatives who insist that race doesn’t matter and it’s liberals how try to gin up resentment will also jump out of their pants to talk about how the black vote might be shifting one way or another?

 
 

Heh. Hanson is accusing a politician of being full of shit and pandering to the closest low information moron to whom he is speaking.

In other news, WATER FOUND TO BE WET.

 
 

bbkf-

Well, of course, he was doing his “aw, shucks” shtick a lot, I mean, the kid was a wealthy silver spoon yankee from Conn. and spent his entire presidency acting like he just walked in from the hootinanny after having a beer with the fellas. This also despite the fact that his drug of choice was only booze after he mopped up the last of the cocaine, owned a ranch that he regularly vacationed in, but hated horses and most things rural and so on.

So yeah, when Obama starts vacationing in an inner city crackhouse and starts recording his rap album, then maybe we can talk about the barest similiarity.

Also, note here that Obama has been one of the least engaged presidents with the black community and has barely acknowledged them and their issues and we’re getting wingnut freakout over a fairly tame presser telling them they probably should support the same sort of shit that MLK and the Million Man March went to Washington for, you know if they weren’t busy.

Yeah, this is pandering “I’m one of you” crap in a fictional world where the sky is green and trees are made of rock candy. But I see why Obama has been so shit to the black community, if merely talking to them gets all the white people in the country shitting their pants in terror.

 
 

Herman Cain won the Florida straw poll that you could literally buy votes for, so it makes sense that the goddamned ex-CEO performed above his personal average.

 
 

The point is, bbkf, if you didn’t like that in Bush, a Connecticut Yankee with a fake Texas accent I believe was the liberal knock on him, then you should probably have some misgivings about Obama dropping his ‘g’s when he feels the situation calls for it.

that would be your point dennis, but as we all know, lots of public speakers (politicians most notoriously) do this…dvh’s rambling would have a little more cred with me if he had knocked dubs for ‘ginning’ up his base at the time…

The two situations are equivalent because Bush was fulla shit about being Texan and Obama is not black.

Also, found this mango when I was trying to figure out what speech had the KKK member so much in a tizzy from the news article capturing it:

Title of article:

Obama to CBC awards crowd: ‘Stop complaining’

Actual statement from Obama:

“We have to do more to put people to work right now,” Obama said. “We’ve got to make sure that everyone in this country gets a fair shake, a fair shot, and a chance to get ahead. That starts with getting this Congress to pass the American Jobs Act. This is a no-brainer.”

“Let’s put our people back to work doing the work America needs done. Let’s pass this jobs bill.”

“Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes,” he said. “Shake it off. Stop complaining. Stop grumblin’. Stop crying. We are going to press on. We have work to do.”

You can see how easy of a mistake that was to make, right?

Also, narrative? What narrative? Why would you accuse the media of pushing a fictional narrative because the raw idea of a black person in power speaking to a black audience is too inherently terrifying on its own? That’s just mean.

And seriously, if Obama’s election was a great proud moment for America’s racial evolution. Then the aftermath has been a contender for the list of greatest shames. The media and mouthbreathers haven’t been this cringe-inducingly embarrassing since 9/11 and at least then you could vaguely blame it on the shock of seeing the country attacked for only the second time since the War of 1812.

Now back to original mangos.

I’ve always felt that pasty, middle-class white guys were the best experts to comment on the needs of the black community and the role of racism in society.

Is there anything they can’t do? The wonders of the planet, they are.

So far Al Gore and Sen. John Glenn have not suggested that Obama is adopting Nazi or Brownshirt tactics, as they alleged of Bush.

Al Gore’s actual quote: “The administration works closely with a network of rapid-response digital Brown Shirts who work to pressure reporters and their editors for undermining support for our troops”

John Glenn’s: “You’ve just got to separate out fact from fiction. . . . Too often, too often, in this country, if you hear something repeated, it’s the old Hitler business — if you hear something repeated, repeated, repeated, repeated, you start to believe it”

 
 

shorter dennis:

Other shorter Dennis:

I don’t know what a mango is. Is it one of those green spicy things that gets sliced and put on pizza?

 
 

Clearly, CLEARLY, …..this is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that.

It’s not always teabagging rednecks, Dennis. In fact, most of the time, it isn’t. Most of the time, its lazy, low-information Moron America, which can’t be arsed to actually care about anything besides who looks stronger or who they’d like to have a beer with.

 
 

For trolling skillz I rate Dennis highly on the making-the-regulars-uncomfortable meter, and that’s not such a bad thing once in a while. He should be funnier though. Maybe if he liked Bigfoot or said badoodle doo YEAH things would go better.

But, just as a reminder, you can filter his comments here on the page or via Djur’s still-operant RSS feed.

 
 

Hey Dennis? Whenever CNN runs a poll that shows Herman Cain, or Mitt Romney, or Rick Perry, or Rick Santorum, or Michele Bachmann, or Newt Gingrich, or Jon Huntsman, or Ron Paul, or whoever the GOP savior/flavor of the week is this week, doing anything but getting their asses handed to them when polling their name against Obama’s…get back to us.

“Generic Republican” tends to poll well only because he hasn’t had to pull out all the stops, embrace the teabaggers, and hop aboard the train to Crazytown…which is a requirement for any ACTUAL human candidate in the party.

 
 

For trolling skillz I rate Dennis highly on the making-the-regulars-uncomfortable meter

Really? On the discomfort scale, I’d rank him somewhere between a cabbie’s halitosis and a poorly placed underwear seam.

 
 

Dennis, you should tell us your predictions of how the election returns would come in. We could bookmark it!

 
 

Hey, remember when the badgers pretended to be a moderate simply shocked and outraged by what he was seeing on the left rather than a full-on conspiracy believing, hard right wingnut?

Good times.

Now let’s get ready to MANGOOO!

Hope-and-change has now sunk into little more than a tawdry spectacle of racial spoils, as the president of the United States desperately cobbles together squabbling special-interest racial, ethnic, and gender groups in lieu of restoring the nation’s prosperity.

Could you spin a few more dog-whistles into that sentence? I’m not sure you crammed enough in.

Before the age of Obama, I don’t recall that some members of the Black Caucus were so ready to invite political opponents to “go straight to hell,” or to allege that they were veritable murderers eager to lynch blacks and restore slavery.

Well, yeah, you’re white and deliberately ignorant.

It’s pretty easy to ignore what minority groups are saying when you in a privileged group that doesn’t have to listen to them to make it through general culture and when you deliberately don’t listen to them because you think of them as filthy mud races.

And that’s before we even touched on the whole yeah, blacks were talking about lynching before Obama because there has been a long and historic tradition of entrenched lynchings of black people. There was the actual lynchings until the 1950s, then the number of “wrong side of the tracks accidents” that occur in the South and rural areas, the number of unarmed black men gunned down by cops, abusive economic or social policy specifically designed to try and make life as unpleasant and hopefully deadly for black people, and of course the modern “we’re so not calling this a lynching” incidents like James Byrd Jr.

Also, again citation needed because frankly Obama really should be pointing out the right’s murderous response to common sense policy, but has barely registered anything more than the emotion of working through mild disappointment and the occasional soft rebuke.

Unspoken, of course, is the truth that Obama’s statism, deficits, interferences in the private sector, and spread-the-wealth rhetoric have frightened business owners into stasis — and the resulting slowdown hurts blacks most of all.

What do we need?

More dog-whistles arranged in such a fashion to make it unreadable by any other means.

When do we want it?

NOW!

But in this fantasy world of racial spoils

Yes, yes, it is.

The idea that black people are making off with white person money is a fantasy world that has been so unsupported it’s not even funny.

Obama’s profligate spending and borrowing can be faulted only for not being profligate enough.

Yes, that’s what economic theory has decided, not that it hasn’t stopped us from running away from that continuously for 30 years and then acting shocked when this theory remains as true as water being wet.

To suggest any other diagnosis would be to call into question the entire federal racial industry of the last 50 years — and those who have benefited the most by administering it.

Reaganomics, what Reagonomics? It’s like we never even tried alternate methods of- What? Why are you poking me?

Wait, what? He said racial industry, not economic policy?

What does that even…

Oh, it’s a dog whistle for reparations.

Wow, how lazy is that. Does he bother to even attempt a response to Keynesian economics? Nope, he knows his audience of KKK rejects doesn’t care. To them it’s not necessary. Just stoke up the old fear of reparations for slavery (an idea that is a) not stupid and b) less likely to occur than VDH getting a blowjob from a woman anytime in his life). Uh huh, and I stress this is his argument of non-racism article. What he thinks is what is needed to bring over the dumbass black marks to the Klan cookout.

I mean, wow. Just wow.

And we’re reaching length again, so we’ll be back for more mangos.

 
 

What are “racial spoils?”

 
Heckuva job, whitey
 

Also, note here that Obama has been one of the least engaged presidents with the black community and has barely acknowledged them and their issues,,,,,.

It would be an interesting thing to note if you made any effort to substantiate what you’re saying but you didn’t so I’ll put it down to you just typing shit. I’m sure you have your reasons.

 
 

Substance-

Unless you use Safari in which case, le fuck you. And yes, I know that “Firefox and Chrome are ‘better'”, but I use Safari for most of my main surfing because it runs faster and with less hiccups than Firefox on my Mac.

Dennis, Dennis, Dennis…you can post that weak-ass link as many times as you like, but here are the facts: Obama is running and someone will have to run against him and get more votes in order for that silly little poll to mean ANYTHING at all. Given that even those who think Obama doesn’t “deserve” to be re-elected aren’t too keen on anything the GOP is serving up as a candidate, we end up with…Dennis getting pwn3d by a CNN poll that any sentient human can see is meaningless.

And getting pwn3d by CNN is about as low as you can go.

 
 

Heckuva job-

Mainly that Obama hasn’t really addressed directly black concerns, because everytime he has even gotten close, the entire white establishment in this country has had a complete freakout that them damn darkies are teaming up to steal all their money and rape their women.

As such, Obama hasn’t been able to directly address black community concerns or issues of racism that target them directly.

Which again, isn’t his fault.

And besides, what he is and what he represents and what he brings in more subtle ways rather outweighs this negative. By being president alone, he already inspires any number of black kids to stay in school and believe that there is a possibility that power isn’t a closed off space. Additionally, he has been trying to address issues of racism in the Justice Department and fix some of the damage Bush did there and has included small provisions here and there to address systemic racism as it more subtly comes up.

It’s more he comes short in direct actions to aid the community presented openly, which is a problem of our country, not the man.

Sorry for the confusion earlier.

 
 

For trolling skillz I rate Dennis highly on the making-the-regulars-uncomfortable meter, and that’s not such a bad thing once in a while.

It would be a good thing, but he’s made it easy to ignore him by being a jerk, so even if he were to get around to saying something worth hearing most wouldn’t listen.

I missed out on the abortion back and forth at the end of the last thread, but would like to point out…it’s in our corporate overlords’ best interests for the population to increase rather than decrease. That way they can keep wages low by pitting a growing and desperate population against one another, plus…more customers, willing or not! A declining birth rate means they might actually have to treat employees like human beings in order to find people willing to work for them, not to mention paying higher wages, & etc. As usual, what’s good for the oligarchs is the default setting for the conservabots.

Now, then, MOAR MANGOS, because badger man is boring and is basically a Troll 101 program.

Instead, a new insidious racism is supposedly energizing opposition to Obama, most expressly on the part of the Tea Party.

New?

Yeah, I’m pretty sure “new” isn’t part of the description we have for the racism that has been the founding base of this “all-new” astroturfed arrangement of old segregationists bent into frothy rage and incoherent policies at sheer umbrage to the idea that the most powerful person in this nation right now is a black man.

Generally beloved actor Morgan Freeman alleged just that: Racism, not stupid policies, is what is hurting Obama — and by extension blacks in general.

Yeah, even the “magical negro” who has made a career of telling scared whites that they aren’t really racist, because they like an actor who tells them they are wonderful just as they are and racism is only a minor misunderstanding easily fixed with a great speech, has had to acknowledge how ball’s out racist your movement is. This is what you might call a “clue”.

Also, he might be noticing that, because he fucking has EYES. It takes a level of denialism often not seen outside holocaust denial to argue that racism hasn’t been a MAJOR factor in the Obama presidency. Let me guess, VDH’s next post will be on the mean old “60s baptist preachers” who in their dog-whistle dog-whistle dog-whistle, tried to argue that there was racism in the KKK, which was also inherently ludicrous.

Next paragraph can be summarized thus:

If a single white person voted for Obama, racism never existed

Also apparently, the fact that more blacks voted for Obama than whites is inherently wrong. Apparently conservatives are simply owed an equal distribution of the black vote regardless of their actions.

No, seriously.

The white vote, incidentally, split far more evenly than did the black vote, which went overwhelmingly for Obama, at well over 90 percent.

Not sure, how you get much more entitled than that without becoming a stock rich villain on a Disney cartoon.

 
 

I found that fairly amusing for several picoseconds.

Hey badger, your mewls of protest would carry more weight if your original “deeply held beliefs” hadn’t so quickly dissolved away as the disingenuous concern trolling that they were on the briefest examinations.

Again, I’ll note you showed up professing to be a moderate and have revealed yourself to be so far into right-wing conspiracy theories that if you tried to enter reality, you’d probably get the Bends.

Disingenuous fucks don’t get anything but scorn. Don’t like it? Then stop being a miserable waste of flesh that has nothing to offer the world.

Disingenuous fucks don’t get anything but scorn. Don’t like it? Then stop being a miserable waste of flesh that has nothing to offer the world.

Danni would, but then he might start crying

 
 

<i.Majorities in Ohio, Pennsylvania now say Obama doesn’t deserve re-election

hey! dennis is right, actor…you are an a-hole…quit stealing my tagfail!!!

 
 

i forgot about chicken pot, chicken pot, chicken potpie!

One of the few good things to come out of Just Shoot Me.

 
 

dennis is right, actor…you are an a-hole…quit stealing my tagfail!!!

I’m not an a-hole.

I’m THE a-hole. Get it right.

 
 

I’m THE a-hole. Get it right.

uuuummmm…no…actually dennis says you are a GIANT a-hole…

 
 

Is Dennis our new troll?

Part of the new exchange program; I guess the SN! regular (Troofie?) went to Oliver.

 
 

actually dennis says you are a GIANT a-hole…

Well, see, his penis is so tiny that a mere crack in a sidewalk looks like his mom’s vagina.

 
 

I mean, raisins look at him and say, “Damn, that shit is shriveled!”

 
 

This almost sounds like a….bookmark.

I’m still waiting for “The Great Liberal Freakout,” myself.

 
 

The mangos continue:

When presidential approval polls dipped below 40 percent, was the treatment accorded Barack Obama less charitable than that accorded his predecessor, George W. Bush?

White people turning on Obama for not fixing everything instantly is not racism because…umm…black people are only supporting him because he’s black. Ha! Also, the people who hate him is totally the majority and the polls that show “disappointment” isn’t totally made up mostly of people who are disappointed he isn’t doing more. See, lots of people agree with my racism, that makes it not racism. And aren’t you liberals sorry that you noted that George Bush’s numbers dipped into the Crazification Factor of 27%? Huh, where’s your God President now? What? You don’t view presidents that way, that’s why you are criticizing his lack of action on certain issues? LALALALALA, YOU ARE THE REAL RACISTS!

So far Al Gore and Sen. John Glenn have not suggested that Obama is adopting Nazi or Brownshirt tactics, as they alleged of Bush.

Because Bush actually did. Real nazi tactics. Torture, concentration camps, meaningless invasions of countries for resource reasons that were blamed on the victims, targeting a religious minority group to shoulder blame for “all attacks on the motherland” and all the various anti-democratic moves he passed.

It was not a comparison happily made.

Also, I’ll note that not mentioned has been the constant accusation of being nazis that has been thrown at every liberal ever in the last 20 years at least by people far more powerful than a handful of retired politicians. I’m sure those were all retroactively just a reaction to mean liberals calling Bush’s policies legitimately fascist.

Wingnut self-justification, always able to make the space-time continuum it’s mother fucking bitch. Something a couple of years ago can cause something 20 years ago. How? Wingnut magic!

In fact, some of the most savage takedowns of Barack Obama have started to appear on the pages of the New York Times and the Huffington Post, where he is alleged to be an incompetent and weak purveyor of liberal values.

Yeah, it’s almost like liberals, unlike conservatives, actually have issues they care about more than “whose side is winning”. Like the actual suffering of real people and that these legitimate concerns often leads them into conflict with many politicians. And that’s before the conflicts of moderate politicians and liberal civil rights activists.

It’s like we’re a collection of real movements rather than a top-down hierarchy of authoritarian fetishists like the right. I know, crazy, right?

It is almost as if some of these progressives relish critiquing Obama, in assurance that their liberal bona fides guarantees that no one will charge them with racism.

Or like they care about the issues more than whether or not “their guy” is in power.

Also, snrk, BWAHAHAHA, oh man. Yeah, sure, liberals never call out their own on racism, racist cultural underlying, or a tendency to assign more agency to the black man than his white contemporaries because of unconscious racism. That never happens on the left.

But seriously, they don’t view racism as anything other than a weapon the left likes to wave around. They don’t think it means anything, but just is something that leftists attack them with because leftists are meanyheads. And critiques like this reveal just how little they understand the concept that these terms have actual meanings and actual arguments are being made.

In fact, the whole thing is basically just a six-year-old’s tantrum.

I mean, there’s little point in finishing the mangos. It’s just a six-year-old reacting badly to their parent telling them they can’t have the candy bar at the store after they beaned their sister in the head with their baseball bat.

“WAAHHH! Evil liberals! They made fun of Bush! I’m not racist, Obama is the real racist. WAAHHH! Billy gets the black vote, I want the black vote, mommy, buy me the black vote! WAAHHH!”

So yeah, dog-whistles and desperate self-justifications based mostly on projection.

Also, a complete inability to understand a single liberal argument.

This whole bit is circling around the idea that liberals acting as they are in reality is totally a hypocritical change from the right-wing fantasy that liberals deified Obama. So yeah, they are mostly whining about how reality isn’t conforming to their delusions.

As much as they pretend that the Tea Party isn’t just the far-right-wing of the Republican Party and mostly connected by racist resentment, it doesn’t change reality and doesn’t make the blacks take leave of their sanity and vote for them. As much as they pretend that liberals are just like them, they turn out to be genuinely cared about the welfare of real people and deeply invested in real issues not glorified popularity contests. As much as they pretend that history and reality are as they would want it to be, instead of how it was, reality continues, liberal bias and all, without them.

And they can’t handle it.

They worked so hard to build cognitive dissonance and embrace a fictional world, and the world had the gall not to follow suit.

And they’ll burn it all down in revenge, starting 20 years before reality made the first move.

The truth is, you’ve sold yourself off here as everybody’s underdog, so anything I say to you will have the gallery here screeching to high heaven that I was bullying you.

Butthurt much, Danni?

Sounds like sour grapes. Were you hoping Cerb would ask you on a date since you took up your sword and shield in his defense against the Big Bad Booty Daddy Actor?

Boy, did YOU bark up the wrong tree!

 
 

By the way, Danni, when you gonna ask me out on a date?

I mean, I’m soooooooooooo fascinating….fuck, I bore myself before I bore you, it seems….wouldn’t you want to, you know, get me drunk and see what I’m like in my Young & Hung thong and all that?

Of course you would. You know you would.

 
 

Your main regular is a giant asshole

How dare you say that about VS.

 
 

“Actor, please don’t think we’re jerks or we don’t like you for saying this, but we’re not comfortable making fun of the transgendered like you do. Okay for you, just letting you know why we feel that way. Please don’t be mad……okay?”

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Hey, SubbyMcG! He’s picking on you now! He just called you my bitch!

 
 

He hasn’t annoyed me yet though he hasn’t amused me either. Subby’s suggestions are good, he should develop comic tag lines, a stripper wife or a spread of truth or some crypto-zoology.

For a horse without much ride in him he sure gets a lot of oats.

 
 

okay…patrick reusse and phil mackey are actually on espn1500 opining that calling people a fag shouldn’t be considered a slur towards all gay people, only the person being called a fag…and also, too…since when did that word become bad? it was used all the time years ago, and nobody said anything? what’s up with that?

somebody come hold my head so i quit banging it on my desk…

 
 

actor-

To be fair, this version of concern troll does tend to get under my skin, but I don’t think I’ve sinned so much against the gods of Sadly, no, that I was the one in need of humbling (expect for that one action that we no longer speak of…so…much…screaming…and they were so young…oh gods). But yeah, pretty sure the rest of the regulars have mostly been pointing and laughing with naught to concern them.

Also, on a purely academic note, it’s amazing to see the growth of a nascent right-wing meme. We had Donalde and Alkon go all-in on the insane conspiracy theory that you were pretty much everyone on Sadly, No and now we’ve got little trolls who despite being on this site, seeing that it isn’t the actor212 channel, nonetheless are still convinced that this site revolves around you.

Yeah, we simply had to shut down the site while you were gone and didn’t at all continue without you as we do with little to no impact other than people occasionally going “hey, where’s that actor guy, is he all right?”

I mean, not trying to slam you or anything, but for how the meme goes and how our resident troll acts, well you’re certainly made out to be more integral. And you’d think that trolling here they’d start to notice that no one’s really giving much of a specific shit about you and that the conversations aren’t just a bunch of sockpuppets nodding in agreement to your every word.

But then, that’s not how the wingnut meme’s work. An authority figure said it was true, so it’s true, lying eyes be damned.

And that is simply fascinating from a psychological perspective.

Okay, enough serious nerdery out of the way. People come here for the POOP and PENIS.

derp…i recall the latest incident of the alkon/tranny discussion as getting rather heated between actor and the others who took issue with it…including cerb…i recall this because i was rather uncomfortable with the tone the thread was taking…me no like confrontation…but in sadly style, everyone said their piece and went back to snarking as usual…dennis seems to be able to research his conspiracy theories pretty well, but seems to have difficulty finding this particular thread…

 
 

I mean, not trying to slam you or anything, but for how the meme goes and how our resident troll acts, well you’re certainly made out to be more integral.

Which, you know, to me is really weird. I’m here, what, eight hours a day tops? And there are long stretches of conversation that go on without any input from me, and no one seems to go “Gee, if only actor had been here!”

Hell, I wasn’t shocked there was a new thread posted in the hour I was eating lunch and nearly a hundred responses had been put up. Some of the brightest, sharpest, funniest people post here, and I’d hate, hate, to think that y’all wait around for me to say something.

So I’m glad you don’t. As I have said in the past, I’m not here for your amusement, I’m here for my own amusement. God help this place if I am the linchpin for it.

The ou and out racism in these right-wing fucks is actually making me physically sick. What’s pushing me right over the edge into vomit-my-lunch-all-over-the-nearest-republican territory is the fact that no-one, NO-ONE in the mainstream media is calling them on it. Those fucks are making speeches and writing op-eds that would do credit to the past Grand-Masters of the KKK, and everyone’s just wringing their hands and saying “well, it’s worse to call someone a racist than it is to be a racist”. Can we please get past this “oh, if they accuse us of being mean, then we have to prove we’re really nice, because then they’ll like us and work with us” bullshit?

They don’t want to work with us, they want to wipe us off the face of the earth (while keeping a select few in chains so that they don’t have to dirty their hands doing anything laborious, like actually producing stuff). They want to hold all the money, they want to subjugate the rest of us, and they fap frantically every night to dreams of what it was like in 1900, and the Robber Barons reigned.

Those guys are fucking racists, and they’re running the Republican party. Fuck, fuck, fuck.

 
 

People come here for the POOP and PENIS.

but they stay for teh goatse…

 
 

The point there was never to defend Cerb, but to ask why he gives you a pass

No no! Danni, you DEFENDED Cerb by asking me why I was so mean to him!

Wow, you really are deeply in denial about who you are and what your orientation is, aintcha?

 
 

NO-ONE in the right wing mainstream media is calling them on it. Those fucks are making speeches and writing op-eds that would do credit to the past Grand-Masters of the KKK

Fixed your post for self-referential clarity

 
 

Dennis-

Go fuck yourself.

Also, actor is an asshole. He chose to be less than he could be when he decided to go all-in on transphobic slurs. I’ve called him out on it, others have called him in on it and he chooses not too because he’s chosen to appear as an asshole rather than make himself better.

But see, your stalker ass, is fucking creepy and it’s probably annoying to no one other than me. And the reason that I still encounter your inane prattle is because you haven’t yet annoyed me to the point where I want to severely change how I read and enjoy this site just to be able to turn you the fuck off.

So yeah, I’m “ignoring” you for my own sanity, because I’m probably the only one on this goddamn site that you are actually annoying. Your stalker target and erotic obsession?

He doesn’t give a shit. He sees you as a second-rate toy from a toy he has already savaged. You are the shit in the toilet bowl to him. He responds to you not out of anything other than it amuses him to do so.

So, get a fucking life and if you really need to cream actor all day, then just go to his blog and do so. Because you have never been interesting and hell, the only one you have ever annoyed is me and that has more to do with what you represent than what you are.

And yeah, yeah, I know, I’ll go back to rotoscoping badgers and if I keep getting sucked in, then I’ll start reading this through RSS feed like a chump.

 
 

you’re a giant a-hole for making fun of his condition,

condition? really?

 
 

I’m genuinely a tad hurt. You are a mean zombie/architect.

yeah, sorry VS. I just didn’t want to give actor too much credit.

Josh St. Lawrence was/is a brilliant piece of performance art. Unless it was the real dude, which is even fucking better.

Dennis, you putrid hunk of shit, Obama drops his “g”s from time to time because he was raised by old Midwestern white people. He probably says “Tuesdee” sometimes, too.

Naw kid, they’re not really elephant scabs.

 
 

So, get a fucking life and if you really need to cream actor all day, then just go to his blog and do so.

Well, he would, but I had to block him there because, you know, he’s an asshole and all.

 
 

condition?

ikr?

 
 

Playing catch-up here:

And seriously, if Obama’s election was a great proud moment for America’s racial evolution. Then the aftermath has been a contender for the list of greatest shames. The media and mouthbreathers haven’t been this cringe-inducingly embarrassing since 9/11 and at least then you could vaguely blame it on the shock of seeing the country attacked for only the second time since the War of 1812.

I understood why Obama’s election was viewed as a huge milestone, but I never was dumb enough to think it meant we’d “gotten over” racism.

Using a example from my other country, as I often do – in 1936, France had a Jewish Prime Minister (one small step for Leon Blum, one giant’s leap for tolerance, etc, etc, etc). Four years after his election, the man was arrested by Vichy and eventually transferred to a German concentration camp, where he spent the last two years of the war. And whatever the postwar mythology may have said, don’t ever let anyone tell you that “oh, it was just because the Germans made us do it.”

Not that I expect anything that drastic to happen to Obama in this day and age, but the point is other countries have elected hated minorities to positions of leadership long before us. Didn’t end racism in those cases either. You could make a good case that it exacerbated it. Lo and behold – we’re doing it too.

Actor, I’m still looking for the Left-Wing MSM. NPR doesn’t count, because they’re as cowardly as anyone else when the Right-Fucks jump up and down and accuse them of anything.

And the most Left-Wing reportage on TV comes from Stephen Colbert, and a lot of people don’t realize he’s joking.

*whew*

Cuz I left my right arm in Pawtucket.

 
 

Also, mango: “Generally beloved actor Morgan Freeman…”

I’m sure that now Morgan Freeman will be unable to get parts as the kindly older black man or the seasoned cop or, like, narrating films about penguins because he suggested that perhaps the president is getting more pushback from these douchecanoes because they’re racist as fuck.

 
 

the entire federal racial industry of the last 50 years

Notice that time window. VD Hanson is including the Civil Rights Act and subsequent anti-discrimination legislation as examples of the “federal racial industry” designed to exploit white liberal guilt and steal their money for the benefit of undeserving black people.

 
 

Also, snrk, BWAHAHAHA, oh man. Yeah, sure, liberals never call out their own on racism

Yeah, I like that one.

All the problems of the Democratic Party for the last forty years can be summarized by “we called out our own on racism” (and their fee-fees were hurt and they ran bawling to the GOP). And by “we,” I mean the liberals in the party, the same DFHs that’re currently being called “National Socialists,” “the real racists” and God knows what else.

Continue the joke.

 
 

I picked up “y’all” in Iowa where they still laughed at me for the way I said “about”.

In fairness, the way Canadians say “about” is pretty hilarious.

Baby steps, Victor, baby steps.

To a conservative, someone who fought in the fierce arena of private commerce deserves respect in a way that someone establishing race as essential rather than incidental to his character, in hopes of garnering state advantage, does not.

SRSLY? Private commerce is a “fierce arena” now? Being a fucking CEO deserves respect? Dubya killed Arbusto Oil, just like teh Founding Fathers intended! Romney got all those workers shit-canned FOR YOU, AMERIKA. Trump pimping US bankruptcy laws (& then openly laughing in everyone’s face about it) so as to spend his whole life surfing on other folks’ savings is EXACTLY like being a WW2 vet, but even braver because there’s no GI Bill for billionaires, sheeple! They worked their fingers to the bone for years doing it, too (where “worked their fingers to the bone” = “got suck-up workaholic henchpersons to do all the heavy lifting while they were on the golf course “networking” where to go for the best scat-play-friendly dominatrix to hire for their next private soiree)!

“Establishing race as central to his character” – Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? I can only assume that both of Obama’s books are all-race all-the-time, because he literally never alludes to being black, unless someone else brings it up in a questionable manner – or on the very rare occasions when he uses it as a rhetorical tool to butter up voters.

For tea-partiers, race is irrelevant: Being a Godfather’s Pizza CEO apparently is proof of greater accomplishment than a long political career, an Ivy League degree, or a distinguished tenure on Wall Street.

Race … irrelevant … to Teabaggers. Wingnut PLEASE.

Yeah, sure, the elitist Obama passed the Lily Ledbetter Act & oversaw the end of DADT … but because he loves the U.S. of A. so damn much, that great patriot Herman Cain passed the “Free Large Coke With Two Or More Large Pizzas Act Of 2007” – bookmark it, libs!

Stupid fucking referee, I barely butchered it.

 
 

He drops his ‘g’s when he wants to drop his ‘g’s,

And that’s a problem why?

like Harry Reid said and later apologized for saying, isn’t that wonderful that he can do that and be articulate when he wants to be too.

And the problem is what Reid said, or the apology?

 
 

like Harry Reid said and later apologized for saying, isn’t that wonderful that he can do that and be articulate when he wants to be too.

Um, that’s not what he said at all, douche. He said that he doesn’t have a “Negro dialect.” And Harry Reid’s a fucking racist, so I don’t know why you think this is some sort of argument confirming VD Hanson’s bullshit.

And I think that it’s pretty fucking funny that you think that dropping one’s “g”s is the way to appeal to black people, and that doing so somehow makes you inarticulate.

 
 

Any of all y’all that are feeling constrained by your duties from drinking enough can feel assured that I will be making up for any slackers as I prepare for the 162nd game of the season. I’m half hoping there’ll be a 163rd though it wouldn’t help the rotation in the next round.

Historic collapse, hell yeah.

 
 

Bbkf, you mean “a-boot”

It’s always made me giggle.

no, no, no! had a college prof or two from canuckistan, and they took umbrage at a-boot…ms. minton actually said, ‘it’s ‘a-boat’, dammit!’ and then she said ‘zed’ and called the cross-walk a ‘zebra’ and we all cracked up…

Noting again that VDH includes the civil rights act within his 50 years of “federal racial industry”, as if he is nostalgic for a time when parts of the US had apartheid policies that established race as essential to character by law

cerbs, i’m concerned…what condition is your condition in?

 
 

And I think that it’s pretty fucking funny that you think that dropping one’s “g”s is the way to appeal to black people, and that doing so somehow makes you inarticulate.

Pretty sure I didn’t say that, Truc-U.

Pretty sure VDH didn’t either

Danni, do you even remember what you write from one minute to the next?

That sure would explain a lot.

 
 

i whip it out every so often…but i’m used to funny looks…

I have noticed that also too.

 
 

I didn’t meet any Canadian’s until I made friends with the McKenzies in 4th grade. My brother and I would repeatedly ask the younger to say “there’s a mouse in the house” and laugh our asses off.

They were extremely polite people.

 
 

i whip it out every so often…but i’m used to funny looks…

I have noticed that also too.

You guys get funny looks?

I usually get a citation. Maybe I should do that someplace besides the local high school…

 
 

“In Iowa if I wrote papers in Canadianese and spelled colour with a “u” every now and then a TA would circle it and write “PRETENTIOUS” and I could go get my mark raised a point because they fucked up.”

That’s pretty funny. You should have protested in this really over-the-top British accent…thrown in some “guvnas” for good measure.

 
 

Cerb? I apologize for not checking first as to which gender pronoun you’d prefer.

I may be an asshole but I do try to be sensitive to such niceties. From now on, you’re feminine to me.

 
 

McKenzies in 4th grade

you went to school with bob and doug mckenzie?!?!?! lucky…

 
 

speaking of evening goat, I’ve seriously been considering cooking up a pot of Birria de Chivo but am concerned that the wife might not approve. Maybe I’ll trick her (not veiled anything)

I remember, even as a kid, thinking “Where the fuck are these kids from?”

Oh, & I’m sure Obama dropping a few g’s or developing a little twang is IN NO WAY due to spending time prior to a speech hearing exactly such linguistic quirks from everyone around him, because as we all know accents are determined at birth & can never ever be altered by one’s social environment.

Victor Davis Hanson. Remind me again. How do you get to be a professor of the classics without learning a single thing from them? How do you look at the grandeur and sweep of the accomplishment of our ancestors. Or not, after all its not like Italians or Greeks were greeted with parades and ticker tape at Ellis island. Come to think of it, Hanson is not really too common of a name in the Mediterranean part of the world where all of these classics got written.
How do you teach the history of Greece and Rome without learning about hubris? How do you look at the history of Sparta and see something noble to be emulated, instead of a bunch of slave owning, violent freaks? Yeah, they beat some tough odds on the battlefield, but they were regularly schooled by the effete, decadent, and pedophilic (fine, pederastic to split a pretty noxious hair) Athenians? So we celebrate Spartan democracy in our civics class? or the golden age of Sparta? or the great Spartan philosophers, playwrights or poets? Or do you find the Spartans were too busy making war on invaders, their neighbors and their slaves, to do any of the things that made life worth living in the first place?
Or how do you study the history of Rome and the noble patrician families without learning the cost of military adventurism? Once Rome got too bored with fighting their own wars and started paying other people to fight for them, how long did it take for those foreign soldiers to start camping in the imperial palace?
The only thing VDH sees in the classics is a mirror of his own prejudices. As far as I can tell, Victor doesn’t care about the cradle of civilization, or the arts or philosophy or really any part of history that isn’t about slaughtering the barbarians and ignoring the part where they get tired of it and slaughter back.

I want to know why you’re a hypocrite in that you allow people here to bash transsexuals with little to no recourse from them because they’re liberals like you, why your principles don’t trump your ideology.

I can’t speak for Cerebrus, but here’s an elementary fucking guess: maybe it’s because Cerebrus knows that even if actor has said some things that she doesn’t particularly like or agree with, that actor doesn’t think she should be beaten, killed, or treated like a second-class citizen.

See, there’s this thing that ADULTS are able to do, which is: recognize that there are a lot of people who might from time to time say something we don’t like or agree with who are still, at heart and when it comes down to brass tacks, good people. Unlike you.

It’s interesting he didn’t make the same comment to me about being bashed for being Christian.

And yet, the people who mocked that part of me and I still manage to get along, and pretty well.

See, Danni, the difference between a liberal and a nao-con fascist like you? We don’t wear the jackboots. And while we’re all going in the same direction, we’re not goosestepping together.

apparently whites don’t mind that one bit in Herman Cain, much to the chagrin of liberals who would like to think otherwise.

Yeah, it’s old news that they actually LIKE it when it’s one of those bizarre creatures known as black Republicans doing it (after all, it might distract low-information black voters from the arsenic-enriched snake-oil they’re selling … plus I imagine they think it’s quaint), whereas when anyone else does it it’s pandering & playing (dunt dunt DUUUUUUN) The Race Card.

The chagrinned liberals who’d like to think otherwise – where are all these butthurt libs you speak of? Personally I could care less whether they think Cain’s accent is hokey or awesome. Fact is, his policy ideas are fucking moronic to a degree that’d make Trig Palin facepalm & he thinks discrimination RAWKS when it’s against those icky Muzlimz. Yes, you CAN be a total waste of skin, even when said skin isn’t lily-white … & pointing that out makes ME the real racist!

I’m not concern-trolling you, Cerb. I want to know why you’re a hypocrite in that you allow people here to bash transsexuals with little to no recourse from them because they’re liberals like you, why your principles don’t trump your ideology.

My, my, my. Aren’t you just a pip?

Not being a mod, Cerberus is unable to “allow” or “disallow” anyone to say anything here. Transphobia is sufficiently omnipresent in the culture that I imagine Cerberus tunes it out much of the time, particularly so in the context of a place not exactly known for its raging sensitivity to political correctness. Also, I know it’s hard for you to see this, but “Arnold Alkon LOL” isn’t quite the same thing as “teh demonic gearbox freakazoid Chaz Bono is a menace to Amerika’s Youth because EEEEEEEEWWWWW!”

Your “argument” is drawing flies.

“Hir”?

It’s really just a gender-neutral pronoun, so I could’ve left off his and her…in other words, it’s not a specific term to refer to a transperson or a genderqueer person, but to all people. If that makes sense.

Oddly, I had this discussion….errr, was it here? Some blog….just a few weeks ago: a good neutral pronoun. Hell, I was searching Esperanto for something (turns out they continue the Romantic language tradition of genderizing shit).

With something like a “hir” one can start to construct a non-awkward syntax and grammar.

Psst, Den Den….when so many people find your “inquiry so offensive,” maybe it’s not the inquiry….maybe it’s the inquirer.

Just, you know, a thought. Something you aren’t particularly familiar with, I know, but hey! Learning starts somewhere!

 
 

Well, except that he told me that I was oppressing him by being moderate, your point might be valid.

So I’m wondering how it is that he blames me for his oppression but not a giant asshole on this blog who routinely makes fun of transsexuals. I really don’t understand why you would take issue with a such a straightforward question like that, innocuous as it is.

It’s like, ‘you’re being kind of hypocritical don’t you think, Cerbie?’ His response is “Fuck you, Dennis”, which I fully expected would be response, so I’m in no way surprised. I am surprised, however, that you find my inquiry so offensive.

Oh yeah, you post a “defense” in which you continue to use a pronoun Cerebrus has said – in this very thread – that she finds offensive, but you’re SOOOOOO “surprised” as to why anyone with two brain cells to rub together thinks you’re a fucking asshole.

Fuck off, troll. You’re ugly and you smell bad.

Dennis, the fact that you insist on referring to her as “he” despite the fact that she’s stated that she identifies as a woman is FAR more than enough to make her response to you completely reasonable, whether your inquiry is justified or not.

 
 

Right? Brother just can’t get any attention, can you?

Sigh, on the Dennis thing since it ballooned.

Yeah, shock, a wingnut who doesn’t understand hypocrisy who nonetheless is bouncing around like an ADHD kid off their ritalin because they think they’ve got something. About as shocking as a proven liar constantly demanding they be treated like they argue in good faith.

Hey, you could have been open and honest and mocked on your own merits, but you didn’t. You chose to present yourself as something that you weren’t and chose to concern troll about issues you don’t give a fuck about other than you think they can be used as weapons against the target you are stalking and people you think oppress because they aren’t buying the shit sandwiches you are selling.

You could have snarked in good faith.

You didn’t, thus anything you say has no worth other than as repeated demonstrations of your disingenuousness and overall worthlessness as a human being.

I wish you weren’t that. I can’t imagine how much it must suck that your actual worldviews are so heinous even to you that you can’t even be bothered to defend them, left only to pose as a fictional moderate and get fictionally bothered as a troll tactic. I can only say if my life was that free of real worries, that I certainly wouldn’t waste my days that way. I envy what you waste and pity what you are. There must be such pain in your head that this at all seems like a valid way to spend one’s days. I hope one day you find peace from that instead of blaming it on various liberals and trying to devote your life to stalking them wherever they go. It will never make you happy.

Also:

I want to know why you’re a hypocrite in that you allow people

By which you mean actor212.

here to bash transsexuals

You’re actor’s stalker with an encyclopedic knowledge of everything he’s done. You know this is bullshit, stop lying and if you don’t want to stop lying, then at least have the human compassion to stop involving me in your pathetic psychodrama

with little to no recourse from them

Yeah, again, actor got fierce pushback as do “tranny” jokes in general. You know this because you are stalking him and have an encyclopedic knowledge of his actions. This patently, nakedly, disrespectfully obvious attempt at open deception is why you get on my nerves and few others.

because they’re liberals like you, why your principles don’t trump your ideology.

Hello projection, nice to see you here in this mango.

Yeah, this place must do hell on your cognitive dissonance, because despite your delusions, we’re not praising actor, we’re not being all hierarchal, and we like all liberals constantly get into arguments with each other about every aspect under the goddamn sun.

I can’t imagine that feels comfortable, but I suppose the stalking must continue.

Fair enough.

When ALL of your talking-points require major neocortical atrophy or damage as a prerequisite, you are not giving me anything robust &/or cogent to work with, to put it very mildly.

Also, the surplus of loony-tune unreality on the right is seriously hurting liberalism by denying it a substantial intellectual foil upon which to hone its positions. Debating the social safety-net, foreign policy or international trade with folks who think “LA LA LA LA I CAN’T HEEEEEEAR YOU” & poopy-fingerpaintings are winning arguments is a dead loss … & constantly pushing back against their Eternal Flamewar winds up making liberals’ positions ever vaguer & mushier in a (futile) effort to pre-empt the next stinking “masterpiece” from the Shortbus Illuminati.

Cain: Black Community ‘Brainwashed’ Into Voting For Dems

I was about to ask where’s the GOP outreach this time to the African-American community. Then I realized that *is* the outreach.

 
 

Now, back to the original topic.

Herman Cain isn’t going to get elected. He is there as minstrel show, as convenient myth that the white conservatives can tell themselves about how they aren’t racist and support diversity because they allow that one single black person into the club (I’m reminded of all the rants about things being “overrun with diversity” because they had less than 1% non-white members, most horrifyingly how Debbie Snackcakes tried to argue the kids Breivik shot had it coming because one kid had kind of a sikh hat in a field of pale norwegian faces).

At most he’ll be placed as vice president as desperate attempt to distract from the obvious and a naked attempt to pander to the “disillusioned liberals who will totally jump ship now”, which will flop about as bad as Palin, because anyone smarter than a wingnut can see it for what it is and because it relies on wingnuts being right about the world to work (hint, they never are).

If elected, it’d be Obama vs Alan Keyes II: Electric Boogaloo and I don’t think the wingnuts are that so far gone that they’d want a narrative-smashing shellacking like that.

Well, that and he’s there so that he can be fed as a bone to the “desperately wanting to be viewed as objective moderates” press. Something they can use while calling the election as a horse race to pretend that the election won’t mostly be just a referendum on whether or not we will continue to collapse into a segregationism meets 1900s company town dystopia or at least remain partially self-aware enough to realize that we should be taking care of problems if we can stop being distracted every twelve feet with made up “crises” like the “debt crisis”.

Cause I get the sense that even the most determined of fluffers in the media is starting to gag a little on the prospect of having to give continuous head to Rick Perry and Michelle Bachmann.

jim-

Yeah, the real debate ends up being internal on the left. We fight amongst each other about what would be the ideal solution and then again on what we think we could pass in the next 30 years and then again with the people who would be conservatives in any sane society, but who instead are labeled moderates and think that makes them gods among men who can see through the “silliness” on both sides and that the right thing to do is just do nothing, except the occassional hippie punching and barest of maintenance, because anything bigger is “just dreaming and not being serious”.

We know that all the right has is reflexive hatreds, half-baked conspiracy theories and standing athwart history yelling STOP, so we have all the intellectual stuff with each other. Work on improving each other socially and trying to work in a diverse environment with each other without overly stepping on each other’s toes.

Which of course makes it ever more apparent when the entire left agrees on something in terms of its “no duh” quality (and even more so when our politicians have to sell it like some risky or dangerous liberal idea “so yeah, I heard our health care system is not ideal, not that I would suggest something radical like fixing it, but that almost sounds like something to think about worrying about if you don’t call me a liberal nazi for bringing it up”).

It’s really what defines the…unique qualities of the liberal circular firing squad, but as a fellow anti-authoritarian, I’m not sure something that was “liberal” could survive without it, even if we did have an intellectually consistent and reality-congruous “right” in this country.

 
 

Also, the surplus of loony-tune unreality on the right is seriously hurting liberalism by denying it a substantial intellectual foil upon which to hone its positions.

I think it was LBJ who said that in Europe, the Democrats would be five different parties. If the Republicans were completely out of the equation, there’d be more than enough dissent within the Dems (including a Blue Dog faction that basically represents the GOP point of view) for healthy debate. Too bad everyone has to focus on keeping the crazy people in check instead of actually trying to solve stuff…

Next they’ll actually be standing on their history of being right about every economic and social issue in the last 40-80 years! Or even…dare, I say it…defend the right of their constituents to vote and the importance of investigating and most importantly punishing the transparent voter fraud regularly undergone by Republicans instead of prematurely folding because “it would look political”!

Can you imagine the horror?

Yeah, I’ve never quite understood the whole “we need a strong conservative party to have rigorous debate” thing. Maybe I’ve just grown up with a completely batshit conservative party my whole life, but it has always seemed that the liberals have long been able to have interesting debate with themselves without them and would be far more willing to actually push the strains if everyone wasn’t kept terrified of the complete crazies and their rather psychotic attempts to try and punish reality for not cottoning to their delusions.

Ironically, enough, it’s more the fear that limits the debate than anything. The pernicious idea that we shouldn’t criticize this or that because it will “hurt our chances” on X against the complete nutters.

And sometimes I wonder if that isn’t the point. That the real support is for the nutter light stuff we’re supposed to praise and the nutters are just there to keep us all in line and hesitant about pointing out the disconnect between those “brave moderate solutions” and the real fucking world.

Why not? That’s more or less the avowed point of conservative media, bullying mainstream media to the point that it’s terrified of being called “liberal” and settles for being “even-handed” (as if curling up in a ball when kicked deterred the bully from kicking you).

Maybe you need one, maybe you don’t. What’s disturbing is looking back that Gingrich 1994 congress and thinking, “wow, things weren’t so bad back then”. Hell, Barry Fucking Goldwater was repulsed by Gingrich’s big fat shit-smelling mouth. Imagine what he would think of today’s obstructionist, reactionary, single issue, destructive little piss ant teabaggers. Small men with small ideals and small minds. Their huffy acting out when reminded that they have all the legitimacy of Jeff Dunham’s puppets just further reinforces the fact that they’re useless toolsheds and they fucking know it.

At the behest of actor…no, actually at the behest of this really obnoxious girl named vacuumslayer, we the Sadlies, came up with a drink called the Wolvertini, as in “WOLVERINES!!!ELEVEN!!11” At my old blog, I asked people to come with the ingredients in it. Some people took it seriously and suggested yummy drinks and some people just went gross and surreal (which is always appreciated).

So anyway, I’m celebrating my b-day this weekend, and I wanted to try to a mixed drink, and I was axing for for Wolvertini suggestions.

Happy Birthday Vacuumslayer, and bbkf, and whoever else is having a birthday today, or tomorrow, or….

At the risk of boring everybody to tears—on the subject of Canadian diphthongs:

The General American vowel in “about” is approximately a glide from the “a” in “father” to the “u” in “book”. (I know better than to try to get WordPress to display IPA letters).

In most of Canada, the glide starts in the same place but moves farther forward to the “u” in “boot”; basically a Scottish accent. That’s the pronunciation that people perceive as being “a-boot”.

There’s also another glide that seems to be more common in the Maritime Provinces, that’s more old-fashioned—Elizabethan, really—that starts from the “uh” in “duck” and glides to the “u” in “book”. That’s the “a-boat” pronunciation.

And yes, it’s true that they named their country by pulling letters out of a jar: “C, eh?” “N, eh?” “D, eh?”

Well, I like that the vampires, to some extent, follow the Stoker rules regarding sunlight.

In Dracula, sunlight does not kill vampires. That aspect of the vampire mythos was actually introduced in the 1922 film, Nosfetatu: A Symphony of Horror. Dracula loses his powers, specifically his ability to change shape, during the hours of the day (except at dawn, dusk and perfect noon). It has nothing to do with whether or not sunlight is actually touching him. Here, it is exposure to sunlight, and not the specific hours, that cancel out their powers.

Also, following in Dracula‘s footsteps, vampires here have the ability to turn into wolves and mist.

The central dynamic of the comic – if the setup given in the first issue is an accurate representation of the comic – is between the good vampire; Andrew Bennett and an evil vampire; Mary, Queen of Blood.

Their relationship in the flashbacks is shown as a romantic one. That aside, it strongly resembles the relationship between Mitchell and Herrick on the UK version of Being Human (of course, I’m sure there’s plenty of slash fiction about those two). There’s a vampire who wishes to live peacefully with humans, and another who sees vampires as superior, and wishes to rise up against the human race, establishing vampires as rulers.

This is, however, a comic set firmly within the greater DC Universe, so there’s a mention by Bennett that Mary’s army wouldn’t stand a chance against the likes of Superman or the Green Lanterns.

The comic doesn’t yet provide a reason for Andrew Bennett being on the side of good. There’s a mention that he, in fact, was never driven by the desire for blood. I’m sure that’s backstory that will be filled in later.

Of course, the sympathetic vampire protagonist has long reaching roots. Sir Francis Varney in the terrible but, highly influential, Varney the Vampire; or, the Feast of Blood (published serially from 1845-47) is a vampire who hates his curse but is unable to overcome his bloodlust which rises along with the full moon each month. Varney, unlike most of his successors, is freakishly ugly and unpopular with women. Andrew Bennett, on the other hand, is depicted as handsome and dashing.

This work goes with the “vampire conspiracy” angle. My expertise in vampire fiction only covers the 19th and early 20th century, so I can’t say where this idea comes from. Vampires, in the works I’ve researched, are generally solitary, except in a strictly hierarchical relationship. Dracula is the head vampire, while his three “brides” (who were presumably made into vampires by Dracula himself) are entirely subordinate to him. In modern fiction, vampire conspiracies are more common. Here, vampires have “lived” in human society for generations, working together to keep themselves hidden from the world. There are leaders, as Mary is here, but it’s more in the way that humans have leaders of movements, not a strict master and servant relationship. I can’t tell you when this trope became popular, but it’s quite ubiquitous in modern stories.

As a few added notes:

The vampires seem to use the word “sire” to describe the vampire who turns another person into a vampire. If I’m not mistaken, this derives from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Here, a simple bite will turn a person into a vampire. I much prefer the idea, introduced in Dracula that the vampire has to share his or her own blood with the victim for that to happen. It explains why we’re not overrun entirely with vampires.

As to the book itself, it was fair but not great. The art was nice and the writing was decent enough, but it’s all very familiar territory. Of course, with the wealth of vampire fiction available, there’s very little new under the sun (see what I did there?). I thought it handled the tropes well enough to convince me to pick up issue two next month.

 
 

Lady-junk tentacles.

They’re DREADS, TYVM.

“I Don’t Snuff My Own Seed”

I believe the word typically used is “snort.”

http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/natural-harvest—a-collection-of-semen-based-recipes/5198959

Just needed to point that out.

Locavorism has gone TOO FAR.

Furthermore, happy birthday to VS too also.

 
 

That was my review of I, Vampire #1, by the way.

I…wasn’t expecting it to be that long.

 
 

They’re DREADS, TYVM.

Prehensile dreads made of bacon and Play-Doh™.
.

 
 

How many people that I respond to are you going to say I’m stalking, bbkf?

Well….since any reasonable person’s definition of “stalking” at least includes the notion of obsessive, uninvited and unwelcome attention, you’re pretty much stalking the whole fucking blog.

We said SNARK not STALK, you moron.

 
 

I…wasn’t expecting it to be that long.

Funny…that’s exactly what DKW’s mom said last night.

(I know, I know, but sometimes I swing at pitches in the dirt.)

 
 

I much prefer the idea, introduced in Dracula that the vampire has to share his or her own blood with the victim for that to happen. It explains why we’re not overrun entirely with vampires.

also more erotic…are you familiar with ‘let the right one in’?

 
 

What is it you’d like, Dennis-King.

Your mom knows the answer to that one.

 
 

Tremble before my encyclopedic knowledge of 19th century vampire fiction!

 
 

Who knew Dennis was such a badger enthusiast?

 
 

What’s Chiller?

This guy?

 
 

Your mom knows the answer to that one.

Heh.

 
 

Who knew Dennis was such a badger enthusiast?

[raises hand]

Vampires. Pfft.

Overdressed sparrow-farts.

 
 

Oh wait. I fourgaht that I’m Canadian, eh?

A snark bloog!

 
 

Zombies were introduced in Night of the Living Dead, which was inspired by I Am Legend, which was about vampires.

So there.

 
 

Is VDH ever going to drink that hemlock?

 
 

Well, after that thread, I don’t just miss Bruce.

I miss every other troll we’ve ever had at Sadly, No!

 
 

I AM NOT LISTENING TO YOU SPEARHAFOC LA LA LA LA.

 
 

Can you guys come up with some guidlelines?

Don’t be a jackass.

The rest is commentary.

 
 

Please don’t just automatically presume,,,

You, Dennis, of all people asking others not to automatically presume. Okay, you win. I can’t touch that bit of EPIC FAIL.

 
 

I miss every other troll we’ve ever had at Sadly, No!

i do too…only because the only troll i have experience with is dennis…and he’s pretty disappointing…i mean, i’ve seen the occasional cum or gary post, but some of the ones remembered today sound like much more fun…

 
 

I can’t touch that bit of EPIC FAIL.

Perhaps Tigris would loan you one of her “dreads.”

 
 

but some of the ones remembered today sound like much more fun…

Troofy was the best. It was like poking a slug with a stick, but without any of the residual humanitarian feelings slugs give rise to.*

*You know it.

 
 

Can you guys come up with some guidlelines?

I think it’s pretty much like any other social interaction among people presumed not to be suffering with Asperger’s syndrome. For example, if you show up uninvited somewhere, and people treat you like you’re an ass, your insistence at sticking around and doing more of what you’ve been doing all along is not as much a commentary on your hosts as it is on your ability to read social cues.

I think it’s pretty much like any other social interaction among people presumed not to be suffering with Asperger’s syndrome.

Hey! Don’t lump me in with Dennis! You Neurotypicals can have him.

You know, this clarifies all the mean stuff those guys at Redstate say to me. They’re not very nice.

 
 

Who are the hosts here, Jeffraham?

We don’t have time for highchair antics, now. Straighten up and fly right.

uh-oh…i may have started a flame war with me mother on fb…she posted a link (and how the eff she figured that out is beyond me–prolly her asshat husband did it) to a MUSLINS BAD!!!111! show glenn beck had on tonight with the comment ‘everyone should watch this’…

i commented that yeah, radical islamists are bad, just like the radicals of any religion are…and that most muslims are not and that i hoped that glenn pointed that out…heh

i may not be getting a birthday lunch after all…

 
 

So, Dennis, what’s your favourite 19th century vampire story?

I’m sure you wouldn’t like Manor, because of the positive portrayal of gay romance. You righties don’t really care for the gays, as I recall. What about Carmilla? It has an evil lesbian vampire.

 
 

Oh!

Burn!

Jeffraham, you just got PWNED!

 
 

Who are the hosts here, Jeffraham?

PRETENTIOUS!!!

oh, wait…we’re not in iowa, are we?

 
 

Besides Redstate not being a snark blog, is there meaning to this statement, tsam?

again…humor…let us show it to you…

 
 

Bang on the highchair tray as long as you need. I still contend you’re a big enough boy to feed yourself.

Don’t be a jackass.

Except when being a jackass is funny.

 
 

To be fair, I am pretentious. I spell words like “realise” the British way when most Canadians use the American versions.

I’ve also begun “alumium” after discovering that it predates both “aluminum” and “aluminium”.

 
 

“aluminium”.

i like to say it that way…as well as shedule…

 
 

and who doesn’t love to say adveris-ment?!?

 
 

or adver-tisment…

 
 

You sound like Alex Trebec.

*sexxxygrowl*

 
 

I’ve also begun “alumium”

also easier to spell…much like dennis is an easier way to spell diarrhea, as i pointed out earlier…

 
 

adVERtisment.

stop being such a dennis…you know what i meant…

 
 

is dennis on meds or something?

 
 

As long as you don’t say ‘masonary’ for masonry, bbkf, we don’t have a problem.

Off them, more likely.

it’s a VERY competitive field.

That’s why I avoid political arguments with relatives on facebook, at all costs… It’s not worth the controversy lingering until the next time you see each other in person.

Hells no, grow your own.

as well as shedule…

Those sorts of preferences often depend on where one went to shool.

 
 

I heard this was a snack blog?

“Yes, that you guys spend 500+ posts talking to, about, or using my name in your nym. Got it, Hoosier X.”

Why does everything always have to be about you Dennis. You are just an insignificant dingleberry hanging from the asshole of the universe.

One thing that always strikes me about wingnuts is their amazing ability to maintain a delusional state even when directly in contact with the real world they have the conspiracy theory or delusion about.

I mean, can you imagine the raw cognitive dissonance at work to be completely enmeshed and surrounded by that which you have all sorts of fictional beliefs about, have direct and constant evidence that what you believe about the group is inaccurate and in real-time edit that to fit the delusions you have already start with?

It truly is a monument to the power of the human psyche.

Linking to a Cracked.com article about 6 bullshit facts about psychology that everyone believes. Number four is “cult members are stupid, gullible sheep.” Cracked gives as good an explanation as any for the cult mentality, that seems relevant to the GOP right now. Food for thought at any rate.

As long as they keep their eyes closed and their fingers in their ears while going LALALALAICANTHEARYOU, their reality is pretty much the only one they can see. It’s everyone else that is suffering the mass delusion.

Also, Faux News. They don’t see anything but that and their front yards, with the hand-lettered “Barak Osama is a Muslin” sign. There is no other reality.

 
 

Despite the tedious sarcasm, I think it’s possible to spend a 500-post thread mostly talking about a very tedious troll.

I bet there’s some evidence for it on the Internet somewhere.

Cognitive dissonance as a Big Vitally Important Thing in human psychology is in my opinion sort of over-rated. Damn near everyone, not just wingnuts, spends the bulk of our waking lives (science says at LEAST 70-80%) on autopilot, relative to full lucid consciousness. Our meandering interior monologues & the perils & foibles of our immediate environment tend to consume what little real consciousness we experience. Not much cognition? Not much dissonance.

Satan is tempting them, God is testing them … or the liberal media’s crypto-Marxist brainwashing is trying to take control of them … but PRAISE JESUS that Rush & Gretchen & Glenn are all there to show them the light!

“In the coming weeks and months, people will have to make some really important decisions about some really important issues,” Columbia University historian Douglas R. Collins said during a press conference, speaking very slowly and clearly so the nation could follow his words. “And one thing we can do, before making a choice that has permanent consequences for our entire civilization, is check real quick first to see if human beings have ever done anything like it previously, and see if turned out to be a good idea or not.”

Also heh.

At $4,200 invested per reader, Rupert Murdoch’s iPad only publication, ‘The Daily,” can easily be deemed a flop. Via AllThingsD: “The Daily, Rupert Murdoch’s once-hyped iPad newspaper, has 120,000 readers a week, according to a media buyer who works with the publication. An executive at Zenith Optimedia told Bloomberg that the 120,000 figure includes both paid subscribers and free visitors. That circulation figure, Bloomberg notes, puts the paper at the same level as the Toledo, Ohio, daily Blade. News Corp. also owns this Web site.” Want to make a small fortune in iPad only publishing? Start with a large one. At least if you’re the man who owns The News.

Too late – & yes, since my Inner Masochist has been neglected lately, I did indeed watch the whole thing.

Oh wow … I really cannot tell 100% for sure if those Good Ol’ Girls are taking the piss or not – but unfortunately I suspect not.

Holy burning bags of shite – I heard better drum-machine beats coming from an Atari back in 1983. Bustin’ rhymes smooth as a 67 Plymouth with a burned-out clutch, yo. Their idea of rallying folks is posing with a portrait of Dubya & flashing their hokey version of gang-signs? “Makin’ the interns scream” … proof positive that announcements of the death of irony were obviously premature.

Smart money says these people were homeschooled by dropouts.

I win, simply because you care who wins and who loses and when you lost, you declare a tie. I win because you care about this, I do not. I’m here to tell jokes, to read jokes and to have fun. You’re here with an agenda. I am not.

Well, therefore, I win, by default for that reason alone. If you’d like the entire list of how I won this exchange, call 1-800-SUCK-MY-THONG

I don’t think we’ll see the actual purge until after Obama’s re-election next year, when it will be safe for Republicans to start walking back the extremist talking points, realizing how badly they hurt Rick Romney.

DenDen, I’m not accusing you of anything. I’m enlightening you to that which you appear so woefully unaware of.

Think about it: your curious fascination with my Cafe Press shop (which was actually started for young heterosexual men at Spring Break until it was pointed out to me I could make more money targeting gay men). Your discomfort at the fact that men might wear thongs. Your fascination with Cerb. Your staunch refusal to acknowledge her gender, calling it a “condition,” a disease.

Your bragging about your physique.

You’re gay. You just don’t know it. I’m merely trying to get you to stop hating yourself.

Cuz you stopped making sense, like, years ago. It was one reason you were banned at my blog.

 
 

C’mon, DenDen, ask me out on a date. You know you want to see me naked! It’s OK, I promise not to embarass you too much when you ask. I just think you need to clear your head about some things.

 
 

DenDen, you have to up your game a little, son. You’re not funny and the anger thing isn’t over the top enough so it’s not working for you.

Did you need me to dumb it all down for you? Would you prefer that? Cuz it’s an effort, but since I’m all about the funnay, I’ll go ahead and do that for ya.

OK, let’s try: Knock knock

 
 

Do the male models audition with you, actor?

That could be fun! I’ll have to try that next time.

Pups? You interested? I could use the perspective of someone who swings that way.

 
 

Jesus Christ, Dennis, could you get any lamer?

So, if I make a product that appeals to the gay community and they become my primary customers, that makes me “gay for pay”? And if I make money because they buy a product from me and I’m “profiting” from “the gays” then suddenly it’s off limits for me to care about gay rights?

What the fuck, are you 12?

 
 

Hey, DenDen, when you gonna realize that you can throw spadeful of mud after spadeful of mud up there, but it ain’t sticking to the wall cuz you’re making stuff up that really doesn’t matter?

Now…Knock knock!

 
 

And if I make money because they buy a product from me and I’m “profiting” from “the gays” then suddenly it’s off limits for me to care about gay rights?

I’m sure the makers of Cheetos are quite concerned over DenDen’s sudden spate of concern for actor212, but they probably don’t care.

 
 

No, I wouldn’t care any less about you than I do now.

He says while constantly trying to antagonize actor.

Wow.

Yeah, badger time.

Dennis is very concerned by the fact that the commentators of S,N! do not live up to the standards that he’s invented for them.

Meanwhile, he trolls for a party that’s been exploiting and encouraging bigotry since the 60’s.

Dennis, do you really hate yourself that much to stoop to slurring gays?

Really? Really?

Really?

ROFL!

Win for us!

 
 

t’anks for the birthday wishes…and jeffraham, i hope vs and my awesomeness will parlay into a job for you…have you heard anything back?

 
 

DenDen’s boobs talk?

Well, considering he’s just one giant talking boob himself, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised…

 
 

That’s gay for pay. That makes you scum.

actually, i think that would be the uncomfortable thong strap of the marketplace at work…

 
 

Dennis it makes no sense defending the Repuke party’s modern un-civil rights record by saying it mirrors the Democrats pre-1960. The Dems evolved and the Repukes regressed. You’re spouting Hannity-level propaganda.

 
 

That reminds me…hippo birdie two ewes, bbkf & vs!!!

 
 

Seriously, actor…have you recently rebuffed the physical advances of a pathetic, Gollum-like creature? Because it’s hard to believe that Dennis could have gotten this obsessessed and butthurt from just stalking someone online.

 
 

, I w couldn’t care a wit

fixxed to reflect your witlessness…

it’s a crazy week in Fargo

trust me…this line is hardly ever applicable…

 
 

So, basically, DenDen, you’re saying your own hypocrisy about being a hater and all that is OK, but we have to be completely circumspect.

Byrd.

They are still flogging Byrd.

Remarkable.

I think the thing that gets them most about Byrd is that he demonstrates that people can change and move beyond misguided and wrong-headed beliefs; and that constant reminder is galling. They’d prefer to not examine their shoddy ideology.

Meanwhile, the Republican Party embraces and celebrates every bigoted turdwaffle who crawls out from under some rock. And then they run for elected office.

As opposed to – Trent Lott, was it? – who blatantly stated in 2002 that “When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over the years, either.”

But yeah, both sides totally do it.

I’m not sure I can throw up enough to get that thougth out of my system

 
 

Well, I knew when I saw a 600+ post count on a thread that just went up yesterday meant that there was most likely some serious trollin’ a-happenin’ inside.

Imagine my disappointment when said troll turns out to be yet another tedious, humorless concern troll who is obsessed with one or two posters to an almost absurd level.

Well, I guess people seek validation wherever they can find it. I just hope Dennis keeps plenty of tissues by his pc.

 
 

So, Dennis, what’s your favourite episode of Doctor Who?

 
 

I just hope Dennis keeps plenty of tissues by his pc.

To cry into?

Or are you getting the same Pedobear vibe from DenDen that I’m getting?

 
 

I have a daughter with chronic migraines.

Gee, I’m not sure which is more disturbing: That DenDen’s breeding or that his daughter is smarter than he thinks.

 
 

Actor, people that start a sentence with “So, basically what you’re saying is…..” are fundamentally dishonest, and it’s a fundamentally lazy and dishonest debate tactic. Far more than the ‘shorter’ tactic or the ‘this is a snark blog, fercrhissakes’ tactic. Far more.

So basically you’re saying you’re too chicken to answer the question, so you deflect using the old “People who say ‘so basically’ are liars”.

 
 

yet another tedious, humorless concern troll who is obsessed with one or two posters to an almost absurd level.

It’s like watching Nat Geo and seeing the mating dance of some animal you didn’t even know existed and which is outside the bounds of ordinary appearance. I’m disgusted AND thinking about frying it up with an apple sauce.

 
 

Or is it just that you’re too lazy? I’m unclear on this point. I could use some clarification.

 
 

So, Dennis, what’s your favourite episode of Doctor Who?

oh my…season finale on satiddy…followed up by ‘bedlam’

 
 

I mean, it can’t be that you’re too lazy! You’ve spent hours this week alone, Googling old controversies I’ve been involved in and then making up stories about them that fit your narrative, so you must have SOME energy in you.

Maybe you’re just too tired to answer? That might be it. All that work you did stalking me, it must have taken a lot out of you.

 
 

area those happy tissues, or sad tissues?

 
 

Dennis – because I pity your daughter, not only for the migraines which I’m sure Fox is not helping, I’ll respond. I do not suffer from migraines OR sinus headaches; my comment was about meditation and relaxation for helping sinus congestion drain. Though the relaxation helps with regular old headaches as well. Basically, the thing to keep in mind is that unless you relax the muscles around the eyes and in the forehead, you can’t relax any other muscles in the body. So you relax those and then work your way down the face and back across the skull and down the neck, concentrating on relaxing the muscles as you go. If you’re going for sinus drainage. there are muscles on either side of the nose that have to be relaxed to allow the sinus aperatures to the throat to open up…creative visualization helps with that too. I actually imagine a drain with water swirling down it and it works like a charm.

Have no idea if any of this would help with a migraine, but it wouldn’t hurt to try it.

 
 

area those happy tissues, or sad tissues?

very used tissues…

 
 

It’s interesting, DenDen, that you keep critquing my principles, but yet you have only your standards to judge those principles by.

See, I live up to my principles, and when I fail to live up to them, there is no harsher critic of that than myself. I know myself and I’ve examined my principles thoroughly. I know every rebuttal that can be made to any position I hold, and I’ve examined the counterveiling opinions to see if perhaps my principles are wrong.

I have absolutely no problems with how I’ve behaved at any time in my life. I have no regrets except for those times when I’ve hurt someone else.

Yet, whenever anyone has pointed out to you how wrong you’ve been, do you take the note and incorporate it into your “principles”? No, you merely change the topic or worse, double down on the Stoopid. Hypocrite, thy name is Dennis

Meanwhile, I’ve been crystal clear in my principles, in action and word, and every time you’ve tried to poke holes in them, you’ve failed.

But I’m sure you’re used to that. Failure, I mean.

You sure your daughter is your daughter?

I’m lucky – I don’t get sinus headaches. On the other hand, I can’t take decongestants – they make my heart go floppy – so I had to learn how to drain my sinuses without aid of medications for when I have colds, etc.

 
nym changed to protect the guilty
 

Dennis trolls here because he enjoys trolling where there are no consequences. He is happy to bother people who admit their party had racists 50 years ago, and removed them, but is uninterested in cleaning the racists out of his own party. You can tell he’s uninterested, because he’s commenting here instead of a place where he could encounter real live racists like LGF or Stormfront, or any one of a hundred right wing forums where the noxious mouth breathers hang out. He thinks people are mean and disrespectful to him here, he is too chicken to experience how his own party would treat him if he faced up to any of their hate.

B^4 does this, but I don’t think it’s salt water.

Sinus congestion? Press the tongue against the roof of your mouth & alternate this with light pressure on the area between your eyes/top of the bridge of your nose. Moves the hyoid (sp?) bone around inside your head & helps to loosen the glurp.

You’re welcome.

Gotta say, it sure takes some mighty big stones to spend days on end constantly telling people here just how hard they suck donkey dicks … & then ASK FOR HELP FROM THEM. Quoting that nice – albeit uncanonized – “jim” feller up yonder seems appropriate: “Not much cognition? Not much dissonance.”

Somebody here really really needs to STFU about other folks’ hypocrisy.

Eh, Dennis, most of the people here are well past their 20’s and actor is not our leader. He’s just a prolific poster. And, well, SO WHAT?

What happened to Charles Johnson? Was he abducted by aliens and replaced with a clone?

 
 

Changing the subject:

If Chris Christie runs and gets the nomination, will that make Obama the Anti-Christie?

 
 

L.B.J., regarding passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964:

“We have lost the South for a generation.”

Nixon political strategist Kevin Phillips (interview in a 1970 New York Times article):

“From now on, the Republicans are never going to get more than 10 to 20 percent of the Negro vote and they don’t need any more than that… but Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. The more Negroes who register as Democrats in the South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans.”

Reagan administration member Lee Atwater in 1981 (in an interview with political scientist Alexander P. Lamis):

You start out in 1954 by saying, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.” By 1968 you can’t say “nigger” — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states’ rights and all that stuff. You’re getting so abstract now [that] you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I’m not saying that. But I’m saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me — because obviously sitting around saying, “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “Nigger, nigger.”

Tuesday: A powerful Republican leader in the Alabama Senate, Scott Beason, apologized Tuesday for referring to blacks as “aborigines”.

You can’t excuse what your party has been doing for 50 years and is still doing today by saying “You had some guys who used to do it, long ago”, Dennis.

So basically, DenDen, you’re saying that you just somehow managed to file away allthose incidents in that chickpea you call a brain and can spew them out over the course of many days, and you would NEVER resort to Googling me endlessly?

Despite the fact that I never once mentioned the trademarks, anyplace, anytime, anywhere?

Hey, I thought some of you here might get a kick out of this young Derbyshire-in-training.
I’m not sure how someone who has taught at the university level for three decades could be described as “young”. But perhaps he is young in the sense that he has newly come into his own as an insufferable pretentious prat. Perhaps he has newly embraced the opinion of everyone he ever taught, which is that when it comes to feats of mendacity, mediocrity and brown nosing, the man has few peers.

Also, anyone who describes Kurt Vonnegut as a second-rate author is delusional at best. He may not have been the best prose stylist of the 20th century, but when it comes to calling out bullshit, and getting people to read and think about the bullshit he was calling out, there are none better, and damn few as good.

 
 

Hey, I thought some of you here might get a kick out of this young Derbyshire-in-training.

“I myself, who taught in a such a department for three decades, recognized the names of only four among them.”

Sure, Derbyshire looks like Methuselah after an bad day under an incontinent elephant, but DAMN are you cruel.

“The Cambridge History of the American Novel” could only have come into the world after the death of the once-crucial distinction between high and low culture, a distinction that, until 40 or so years ago, dominated the criticism of literature and all the other arts.

Perhaps he could tell us on which side of the crucial divide Shakespeare falls? Or Bach? Or Phidias? Or the Lascaux painters?

Oh dear…it looks like The Onion may have overstepped the bounds.

And like DenDen here, the Republicans have no sense of humour.

 
 

Yeah. It was really stupid — no matter what people should by now know about The Onion — to do this tweet “screams and gunfire heard in the Capitol.” Not least because the joke was about Boehner taking hostages. Had they led with that, no problem.

These are the same guys who decided not to run with a headline immediately after the 9/11 attacks of “America As Safe As Ever, Say Quadragon Officials.”

(And, yes, they had discussed Tetragon but Quadragon seemed more accessible.)

 
 

Not one to put words in Dennis’ mouth

No, not words.

And still “DenDen” *koffkoff* would have had to do work to find that particular piece of info because it never appears in the exchange *I* linked to.

It has gone from amusing like “funny hat wearing” to the insulting “teabagger” to the downright UN AMERICAN “American Taliban” and “terrorists”.

No, it wasn’t stupid. It was The Onion.

The only “stupid” involved in the whole thing is from regular media types who are too clinically retarded and willfully ignorant to know about The Onion, or able to click a link and read the piece in question, rather than just reading the headline and freaking the fuck out.

The Onion thing sounds like the ATHF lite-brights that shut down Boston Transit a few years back. I loved how supposedly “liberal” blog commentors were all over the “throw the book at them!” sentiment, becuse they had “freaked people out and disrupted traffic.” Well, only because the morons couldn’t recognize a Mooninite. My question at the time was , ok, say I’m a business traveller and I forget my briefcase under my seat in the airport, they shut the whole place down and call in the bomb squad, blow up the briefcase…should I be charged with making a “bomb threat”? I mean, I never told anyone it was a bomb, I knew it wasn’t a bomb, so how is it MY fault if you freaked out and assumed it was? You can’t prosecute people because of your own dumbass assumptions that are proven wrong well before anything ever comes to fruition. What you’re really asking for there is to punish someone for “making” you look stupid.

Hoosier X:

I think the copypasta Troofie was more tolerable because there was no pretense for engagement or a two-way street in the monomaniacal psychodrama. Whereas this troll has pretense of engagement so that the troll can fill in the loose ends in their personal psychodrama in their desperate attempt to try and destroy actor and “his friends” and avenge the grave injustices he sees as done to his heroes. So we get a troll who keeps trying to engage us, but not wanting to actually engage with any discussion or snark chain outside of how it can be reinterpreted and rewritten to fit what he wants to view the world as.

Spearhafoc:

I was thinking it sounds more like Tommy Wiseau’s character. “That’s a funny story, Mark, haaaah.”

Same complete inability to humanly respond to any event and same living a fantasy world on another planet quality.

On the whole “nuh uh Robert Byrd” talking point that the right has undertaken:

Well, yeah the obvious. It’s like shouting Ted Kennedy or George Clinton at every instance of Republican impropriety. The Republican Party at all levels has devolved to the retorts of a six year old, just learning a few phrases that they shout over and over mostly for self-justification but also because they hope that shouting will get the liberal to shut up and thus they “win” because they “showed them”. Having a follow-up answer of not listening to the response and instead just letting the cognitive dissonance run wild also seems to work well.

But yeah, it does always leave the obvious. “Yeah, there were a lot of racists in the Democratic Party in the 60s and then you seemed to run out of more modern comparisons. It’s almost like there was this big watershed event in the late 60s that caused a massive political realignment.”

There is also the other obvious. Um, yeah, the work’s not done and there are still racists in the Democratic Party and racists who call themselves liberal and by many definitions of racism, there is racism all up in this bitch on every level, because it’s more a range of emotions and actions and instant reactions, rather than a straight up hatred. We all grew up in a racist culture and there are nasty side effects of that, even for those of us who try to be the “good ones”, even for those who have been born as the subjects of those prejudices and hatreds.

What has always been the dividing line has been the attitude towards that work, with liberals always striving to improve, listen, and learn and conservatives, well, just balls out supporting the most bigoted system they can find, indulging in their hind brain and whining like a mewling kitten that “nuh uh, democrats are racist too, blacks are the real racists, it’s unfair to call me racist, MOMMEEE it’s not my fault, make them stop attacking me” whenever they are asked to help in our cultural evolution.

But yeah, that’s what I’ve noticed the most about all of the wingnuts and their arguments.

They are basically desperate self-justifications and the weaseling out of responsibility to be an adult. To handle the world that is, the people who are, the problems we have and a desperate whining demand to be allowed their fantasy world with fantasy problems and fantasy assailants that they can feel fantasy righteous against and have release for their delusions.

And what makes it so annoying is that that is the case. We’ve no end to escapism. If they disappeared into role-playing games, video games, movies, or books, we’d hardly blink an eye. And if they harmed none in their delusions, well, we have medicines and sympathy for that.

But here, we have a bunch of spoiled people with all the cultural advantages this country could give them, whining that they aren’t allowed to use the rest of us to flesh out their psychodrama. That we complain when they use us to dump out their persecution complexes or need to justify to themselves why they lived a joyless empty and unfulfilling life. That we continue to bitch about the real problems and the real damages and don’t let their guilt off the hook by kindly dying to their policies in silence.

And frankly, fuck you cupcake to the lot of them.

A very tough choice. Tricking the bridesmaid will protect us from terrorists, but saving prezels for the gas jets is certain to create jobs.

 
 

Jennifer:

What you’re really asking for there is to punish someone for “making” you look stupid.

From what I’ve seen, there is a critical mass (one might say 27%) of people so very entitled that they really think “making me look stupid” is a punishable offense. That people pointing out that their worldview is wrong, their facts aren’t in order, their actions have meaning, or that their responses are inappropriate to the risk shown are committing some grievous sin and that this justifies retaliatory response. Those people have “done you wrong” and now the cognitive dissonance needs to spin, pulling in random phrases to figure out how and where to justify the actions you already want to take against them.

So, you fucking up and not knowing context becomes “those scares are serious business” and so on.

Which reminds me of this from bbkf:

Look at the chronology of the Tea Party and the words and phrases that have been used to describe them (us).

It has gone from amusing like “funny hat wearing” to the insulting “teabagger” to the downright UN AMERICAN “American Taliban” and “terrorists”.

They were stupid enough to use a sexual term to describe themselves so this becomes a “horrible slur” invented by their enemies. Their actions and aims are congruous with a group labeled an enemy by our country, so those becomes attacks as well and Unamerican attacks, nonetheless. They shot up congressman, planted bombs, and promoted the murder of over a hundred kids in Norway, so noting what that means becomes an attack as well. The self-justifications build and now you have reason to attack liberals as if your “movement” wasn’t born from the urge to punish liberals for electing a black man in the first place.

Also, I know I’ve gone off on this before, but I’m really amazed at the modern wingnut’s ability to rewrite history and chronology in real time. I mean, I could vaguely understand rewriting Reagan and FDR, these were past events with the cloud of history blurring the time-tables, I can see how they thought they’d get away with it. But the way they have rewritten events mere months after they occurred or during the events. The way they tried to criticize the “Obama presidency” before there was a presidency and blame him for events undertaken under Bush, the way they, a mere WEEKS after they were informed their chosen term was a slang for a juvenile sex act made it so this was a liberal slur against them even though they had proudly identified as that for months.

And more importantly, the way they’ve gotten away with this, more or less, truly is mind-boggling to me.

I guess I understand some of the psychology, the raw power of tribal mentality and cult responses, but to see it in action like that is truly a marvel to the power of the human mind.

And yeah, again, I’d like to invent a device to give them a taste of what it’s like to have real problems, real oppression, just for a day.

Aw, poor babies, some liberals lightly mocked you for describing yourselves in a stupid fashion after you formed a political ideology which was “I don’t care what you pass, just punish the filthy hippies for voting in the nigger and I don’t care if you tank the already broke economy to do it.”

Let me just sum up all my remaining empathy and…

Oh look, I just ran out, what with all the people with real problems out there thanks to you deciding the American political system was a great place to perform an extended psychodrama about how you thought you could pretend away the Voting Rights Act of 1968.

Try again next week.

Also, I know I’ve gone off on this before, but I’m really amazed at the modern wingnut’s ability to rewrite history and chronology in real time.

We watched an example of that unfold here this week. It doesn’t surprise me. It speaks to a bloodymindedness of eipc proportions, so focused on stopping everything dead in their tracks for a few moments of “ME! ME! ME!”

Can anyone remember any other group that has come so far in such a short time to hold such power over an entire country?

Yeah, it’s almost like they were the paid mouthpieces of the establishment, the rich and powerful, the usual band of useful idiots that powerful forces always like to enlist and put power behind in order to argue that the system as is isn’t really broken so there is no need to reform it.

I know, crazy to think.

Especially the way they zoomed to power without having to toil in obscurity, enduring constant ridicule and slowly building up enough members and allies to start really applying political pressure, the way they got glowing media attention for every fart bubble and 20 person rally while million person marches got nothing but static. The way the movement never actually existed and only was the desperate rebranding of the most racist of the Republican base, a way to make “the same fuckers who opposed segregation and didn’t die off yet” sound like something noble and American and hide the fact that the constitution they were quoting was always the confederate constitution.

Yup, most be the true righteousness of being the greatest protest movement God has ever given this world…or was that Madison Avenue and the Koch Brothers? I always get those two confused.

No matter.

 
 

It’s like shouting Ted Kennedy or George Clinton at every instance of Republican impropriety.

It’s never wrong to bring up George Clinton.

 
 

I’ve always believed that the Teabaggers’ biggest mistake was in pushing the movement too fast.

I mean, one day there’s Rick Santelli on the air at CNBC “spontaneously” ranting about bailing out homeowners and sending teabags to the White House and the next, there’s a fucking movement built up, with state-by-state organizations, literally within WEEKS.

The American people may be many things, but one thing they can smell is a scam, and so I think that’s one reason the Teabaggers never caught fire and ultimately ened up nothing more than a waning gadfly of American politics.

A great documentary on the movement, by the way, is The Billionaires Tea Party. See if you can find it online (LinkTV will be playing it on Monday.

 
 

It’s never wrong to bring up George Clinton.

We want the funk

Wow, that’s a strange slip.

Damn, now I’m stuck just imagining how much better Bill Clinton’s presidency would have been if we had the Parliament of Funk in charge instead.

 
 

It’s never wrong to bring up George Clinton.

That post left a bit of a funk in the air.

 
 

actor-

I don’t know.

I guess it depends on what was the purpose of the organization.

If it was to turn an astroturfed movement into a real and growing movement then yes, it was so much a failure that the one Friend’s spinoff with the least likeable member looks at it with pity.

But if it was to distract from real problems, get everyone talking about a fictional issue while the Koch brothers stepped up to looting whole states? If it was to give the media something to run with so they wouldn’t have to talk about unemployment or the fact that the insurance companies were sure as hell not going to end the gravy train even if that meant millions more would have to die in preventable ways? If it was to get the entire political system to obsess about fictional problems like the debt crises so that the worsening depression we’re in would a) not get political attention so b) it would be blamed on Democrats and serve as a post-hoc justification for continuing the 30 year looting of the middle class that is Reaganomics?

Well, I’d say it’s possibly the most successful advertising push in world history.

I mean they took 50 person rallies of segregationists and grandmas riding government-paid for scooters and ranting about “keep government off my medicare” into the only media topic for over a year, a year in which it then became “passe” to talk about the economic depression, the housing crises, the massive number of unemployed and unemployable, the lives of the uninsured, or the right-wing stepping it up into openly disregarding the election process, directly targeting minority groups for illegal harassment, and preventing any amount of legislation or seat-filling that the party of power would want to do until such a point that they could do so less obviously by being a “split congress”.

For the cost of some stupid hats, a few drunken speakers, and a couple of memos to your media companies, this paid off in gangbusters and helped shunt a lot of energy that had been building into directly confronting the groups directly responsible for the current economic crisis.

I don’t think the teabaggers were ever meant to become something and I think they thought it’d be better if they never did, so that they couldn’t do what they’re doing in the Republican Primary or in 2010. They were really just there to distract people for a couple of years so that people wouldn’t notice exactly who is rigging the game and seek retribution or meaningful change while it was politically possible to do so.

Michael Reagan:

Like just about everybody else I’m being wearied by both Mitt Romney and Rick Perry citing passages from each other’s books to prove a point. All they do is prove that they can read and write. We need more than that in a president.

!!!

 
 

Weird. Micheal is the stupid one.

 
 

Also, WHO MAKES THIS SHIT UP?

Fox. PJMedia. The National Review. Etc.

Taking this opportunity to also bitch about facebook, family and conservatives:

Yesterday night, I find that my uncle commented on somebody else’s wall and reposted a National Review article about the case of Yousef Nadarkhani, the Iranian Christian priest who’s about to be executed for apostasy. Of course, he makes no bones about the fact that he’s absolutely DISGUSTED that the White House and State Department haven’t said a thing. He and his friend commiserate about the disgusting spinelessness of the president. Etc.

Less than twenty-four hours later, I go to his wall and find another article posted, this one about how Obama made a statement condemning Iran in unequivocal terms for it. With a comment of “I’m glad… it’s OVERDUE!!! But I’m glad.”

Not a laughing matter, but I’m in stitches nonetheless. Would waiting for it really have been too much to ask, considering that the “spineless” one is the same guy who gave Qaddafi the boot when Saint Reagan couldn’t and popped Bin Laden when Flightsuit Boy couldn’t?

 
 

All they do is prove that they can read and write. We need more than that in a president.

Wait. This has multiple meanings. Perhaps he thinks the president should also be a Kracken.

Right?

Hello?

Hm.

 
 

Presidents should be able to poop in the potty AND wipe.

 
 

Also, you KNOW these guys would be all up in arms if any rabbis or imams were being executed for apostasy, right?

Oh, indeed. Funny, I don’t remember the National Review ever getting up in arms about the oppression of Yazidis, or Zoroastrians, or Bah’ai in Iran. One Christian priest gets executed and they’re all up in arms.

They should be, don’t get me wrong, and if it does end up doing any good then that’s outstanding… But it’s not like conservatives have any sustained record of speaking up for human rights, even in places like Iran. Whenever they do, they’re almost invariably working an angle.

The food stamps bit is not true; only citizens can get them, and any immigrant family can only receive food stamp funds for the number of citizens in the household, so for example for the child born in the States while everyone else gets nothing. The rest probably is false, too, but as he couldn’t be arsed to do the work finding out what was true before posting it why should I exert my delicate self?

It’s like how they “know” that affirmative action is giving jobs to black people who are less qualified for it than the white people who would’ve had it otherwise.

Food pr0ns. Lettin’ all y’all in on one of those local sekrits. On teh way back from teh undisclosed location, we stopped here. Yes they do deliver to a handful of select outlets right at home in LEAFS SUCK, but there’s something special about getting your fillets right from teh owner out of his smokehouse/store next to his trout pond.

Started heating some water. Took half a smoked fillet, chopped it into bits (setting the skin aside for lightly grilling into crackers tomorrow. To have with cream cheese.). We just got back from a week away and haven’t done much shopping so there’s not a lot fresh left in teh kitchen. Boiled some dried package spaghettini. Dumped in some olive oil, teh fish and a handful of capers for salt.

We had most of a romaine left from away so it was that and a very plain salad. Fifteen minutes from pulling a can of Sapporo out of teh fridge until we were eating.

This thread had a whiff of nostalgia for trolls gone by. Did anyone mention Dr. BLT? that was some funny shit, the comments about the music he would post here I mean.

 
 

Your friend would rather hear this: “we’re conservatives from the government and we don’t give a shit about you”.

 
 

Gordon… for you, one of my favorite tunes of All Tyme.

The most dangerous words in the english language-”We’re from the government and we are here to help you.”

Wow, clever AND original!

Anyway, I’d prefer “help” to “audit” or “arrest” or “deport” or, well, lots of things. If you think helping is the worst thing the government can do to you I’d call that a failure of imagination.

 
 

Ok, this far down I the thread I thought people might be referencing another monstrosity. That’ll teach me to have a semblance of a life.

VS – This thread is on impulse power limping along trying to get to 1000….

Tigris – going to have to borrow your comment. Be right back…

Shitty snark that sounds meaningful because delivered in a folksy manner, the kind of crap Reagan was famous for.

Try telling that line to someone saved from assault by a cop. Or the people helped out of a natural disaster by FEMA (even Perry doesn’t mind sucking on the feds’ teat in that particular situation). But yeah, go right ahead and take a piss on the several million employees working for you in those capacities and other. Hell, what else does tricke-down mean?

 
 

Jeebus vacuum there are so many monstrosities. Of which are you referring?

Chris – the person in question is a public school teacher, no doubt part of a union. He is hardcore libertarian. He laments that Gary Johnson gets no play and posts about that as well. Lots of tin foil on his hat rack. He teaches social studies…

Libertarians drowning in government money: so alarmingly common they’re in danger achieving escape velocity, leaving the “irony” zone far behind and falling into “worn-out cliche” territory.

He laments that Gary Johnson gets no play and posts about that as well. Lots of tin foil on his hat rack. He teaches social studies…

And it’s such a wonder our public schools are falling to pieces.

(Someone was going to say it).

Hey Chris we are at 966. Let’s do this. Hey the other night did I tell you I got a job? And the effed my Ireland gig? Sorta.

 
 

tsam,

it seems our friend Dennis also might frequent that site.

 
 

Hey Hogeye – NOOOO Dennis makes me cry. Stop feeding. Please.

 
 

Did anyone formerly enjoy the band, Psychefunkapus?

Hey the other night did I tell you I got a job? And the effed my Ireland gig? Sorta.

So is this a 🙂 moment for getting the job, or a 🙁 moment for not getting to move to Eire?

Eh, I’m going with “congratulations!”

 
 

vs, didya see the birfday video link I posted for you & bbkf?

 
 

Dennis is dull as dishwater, and so the badgers dance. No need to engage with him, he’s boring

This.

Stop feeding. Please.

Also this.

 
 

good job; not great – will hafta wait for Eire. But I can go there when I want. So; YAY thanks for the congrats.

 
 

But wow. Have you been to Eire? Most beautiful country EVA. You know how you buy something from a catalogue and it is not what you ordered? Eire is EXACTLY what you ordered. It is as green and as pretty and the people are as friendly as you thought

 
 

Fenwick I have been waiting for my mint julip all day. Thank you.

 
 

Doing my part.

 
 

Doing someone else’s part(s).

 
 

Hey Butch was gonna respond but it doesn’t really count if it’s only 2 of us, right?

 
 

Oh I responded.

 
 

The impotent part is… we TRIED!!!!

Dropping 984 before I go to bed.

Fucking people on TV are TRIPPIN

 
 

Nope, never Ireland – England’s as close as I’ve gotten and that was eons ago. I hear plenty of good things though.

 
 

Go to Ireland. Trust me; it be awesome. And speaking of England I’ve got a BIG birthday next year, I’m gonna gove myself a trip to London.

 
 

Don’t sleep now, you fools! The goal is within reach.

 
 

So close and yet so far away.

C’mon Sadly,Naughts! why don’t you write me?

 
 

Approaching 1000. Should I bother to catch up?

You are required to read it all. There will be a test.

 
 

This should be 998, I think. (I’ll let someone who’s actually been on this thread get 1000.)

 
 

Aieee.

Well my life is no longer worth living!! Being 1000 on a blog? No? Damn.

 
 

Okay, we made it. Now, nobody post anything more until M. Bouffant has caught up.

 
 

Sorry MB, I can’t resist. After all, we deserve THIS!

oh, bugger.

 
 

OT: Was just watching Susan Boyle when everyone laughed at her. Simon said “how old are you?” And when she said “47” all those stupid young girls laughed at her. I have no point except FUCK YOU GIRLIEs.

I did, & missed my chance to be 1000.

Young people are the worst thing in the world. (Young Republicans possibly worse than hipsters, but it’s a close call.) Example:

Was on the train today & an airhead (in her 20s) propped her bike up in the space between cars, sat down two or three seats away & proceeded to text as ‘though there were no tomorrow. Her bike crashed over loudly on the next turn & she didn’t even notice. I should have gotten off a stop or two early & taken it w/ me, but it was pinkish, so …

Hell, if I’d been in a slightly worse mood I would have pointed it out to her & told her she was damn lucky no one did steal it.

 
 

And now, an embarrassing third comment in a row from me, & the thread is at last history, at least until the Antipodeans awaken.

More notes on Our Society: Cable shortage in the bunker, & w/ 102 over-the-air digital channels, I can say that broadcast telebision sucks, bites, eats, chews, swallows &c. even more than cable.

 
 

Hey M.B. were we that bad? I do not think so, at least for me. I am in a weird generation. Right at the point where girls were expected to have babies by their union hired husbands, which smacks right into the place where girls are expected to be the boss.

 
 

HI!!! had a super birfday…drank too much…going to sleep it off..continue on with the deep stuff you’ve been discussing in my absence…

 
 

oh…helen, i see you’re here…when are we hitting ireland?

 
 

Hi bbkf HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY. there is no such thing as drinking too much on your birfday. Next for me is 50 so HOLY COW boy could I tell you stories. And I will be in London -YAY for me.., And you. Happy Happy Happy.

 
 

hey bbfk – when do you wanna? Just got a cool job (after 2 1/2 yrs of unemployment) but will hit the Eire in a second.

 
 

Great post (with many pictures) by Juan Cole about the “Wall Street Occupation”. Interesting take.

oh, i am there any time…just let me know…

oh, shut the hell up…i wanna go back there, too…but just for a visit…thanks for the good wishes…and have some serious happy whilst celebrating in london!

 
 

oh, i am there any time…just let me know

West or East? West (Galway) is BEAUTIFUL. Greener than you would ever believe. Just like the pics. East (Dublin) is (for me) just as great. The jobs are there. And it is NYC (where I live now) with the accent and double decker buses.

 
 

I’ve already wished bbkf and vs a happy birthday, but here’s the best birthday video ever.,

i may have peed myself a little…

 
 

and have some serious happy whilst celebrating in london!

Next year. Just turned 49.

 
 

West or East?

i love all of it…but waterford and killarney are my favorite places…and the burren…it’s just amazing how much different topographies you can see in such a small area…

 
 

Waterford in south/east, right? Like as in the chrystal? I am a New Yorker so a city girl. Dunno how much I can handle cows walking down the road. No shit that happens.

But – Trinity Univ would hire me TOMORROW. That’s what I do. Manage univ. grants.

 
 

I start a new job on Monday and the drinking will have to stop. Really.

this is great that you start a new job…but not so much on the not drinking part…

Waterford in south/east, right? Like as in the chrystal?

yes…and at the factory they put a waterford crystal pitcher that they made right before our eyes into my clumsy hands…my sisters were all like,’no!!! you don’t know what you’re doing!’ because if something breaks, it comes out of that worker’s check…yikes…

But – Trinity Univ would hire me TOMORROW. That’s what I do. Manage univ. grants

trinity is gorgeous…could have stayed there forever…

 
 

Hey M.B. were we that bad?

Today’s young people. We had at least a vague idea of what was going on around us & under our noses.

 
 

trinity is gorgeous…could have stayed there forever

Recently looked at apt prices. The Trinity Univ neighborhood is my favorite with Grafton St right there. Exactly the same prices as where I am now – Queens NY. In dollars: $300K for a 2 bedroom. YAY!

 
 

Young people are the worst thing in the world.

yes, for the most part…interesting to note: i was in ireland a few years ago when the economy was just going gangbusters…the older folks could not have been nicer to the mad rush of tourists invading their country…they knew where there money was coming from…the younger folks? with all the latest cars, gadgets, clothes, etc. etc…meh…not so much…the young ones were total dicks…i’m just wondering how they are faring now…

 
 

Hey MB there is a funny quote from Aristotle about how young people disrespect their elders. So…..

 
 

vs, bbkf, many happy returns!!

bkf, re: dinner, try this: “Okay guys, it’s my special day, and I get to pick what I want to talk about. So, no politics at the table, just for tonight, mmmmmmkay??”

Sweetly, of course, Might work, who knows?

i just bit my tongue a lot and thought about the drinking that would commence later…

 
 

and thank you!

 
 

bffk: the mega bizzarre thing about Ireland is that by far, the people are the most friendly. In a country that Europe HATES. And I have been all over Europe. The Irish say “There are no strangers in Ireland; only friends that you haven’t met.”

Ireland has one of the most educated pops in Europe (cuz it;s free through college) BUT:

Right now Ireland is one of the worst economy’s in Europe. Oy could I tell you stories!!

Big mistake to sign onto the Euro.

 
 

also, too…best birthday present of all: no dennis…

 
 

Right? that asshole makes me want to leave this blog. Today I wanted to SCREAM at you all – STOP FEEDING THE TROLLS.

which is so true! when i was there, i was asked repeatedly if i had ever been overseas, and i would reply, ‘yes…england.’ to which i would get, ‘FOOK the brithish!’ and then a whole bunch of cursing that i couldn’t even begin to make out…

i am serious…hubbkf wants to go, as does number one son…if i had the cash and a job awaiting me there, i would not hesitate one fucking second to get there…

 
 

Today I wanted to SCREAM at you all – STOP FEEDING THE TROLLS.

ikr? i so have the bad habit of engaging in pissing contests…

 
 

It speaks to a bloodymindedness of eipc proportions

Make that ipicac proportions, ‘cos it makes be wanna puke!

I should have gotten off a stop or two early & taken it w/ me, but it was pinkish, so …

It would have matched your complexion, old chum!

 
 

i am serious…hubbkf wants to go, as does number one son…if i had the cash and a job awaiting me there, i would not hesitate one fucking second to get there…

plus i would have to check out social services or something since our oldest child has disabilities…

 
 

d00d..what are you doing up at this hour?

 
 

well getting Irish citizenship is quasi easy. Do you have any ties there?

 
 

bbfk – all health care is free if you are a citizen. As is education through college. Imagine that? A buncha solshulists!!! BUT well. abortion, not so much.

just great, great grandma being born there…

bbfk – all health care is free if you are a citizen.

good to know…our daughter has cerebral palsy and is mildly retarded…she is an amazing girl, but we cannot even begin to give her all she needs to be a productive citizen where we are w/out socialist services…

s is education through college. Imagine that? A buncha solshulists!!! BUT well. abortion, not so much.

well, isn’t birth control even a bit of a stretch?

 
 

oh, and i apologize for the tagfail..

 
 

and cripes…i gotta go to bed…must work both jobs tomorrow plus help hubbkf with his art show…ta!

 
 

Cirtizenship in Ireland is only to your grandparents. My mom was born there so i am a citizen,

But why isn’t your daughter taken care of here? My sister is mentally retarded and gets SSI and lives in a group home (which by the way is fabulous)

 
 

d00d..what are you doing up at this hour?

I’m working a graveyard shift. This coming month is our major fundraising month, so things will be insane on the job.

Octobers, I usually pull a “Captain Nemo” and don’t surface for days on end.

 
 

HE is a very cute wall of tabby.

As the owner feeder of a part-Maine Coon, I am just saying, that cat is a midget.

 
 

Is said part-Maine Coon Mrs. Spat? What’s she weighing in at these days?

My family had a cat very much like the WoT- he was about thirty pounds of cat.

 
 

Mrs Spat is 7 or 8 kg now, and still growing. Fortunately not a lap cat.
Any talk of Maine Coon ancestry is of course speculative with a SPCA rescue kitteh.
