Welcome to Savannah's first Christmas, with a proud great-grandpa looking on.
December 27th, 201212:07 pm
OMG, that video of Oprah repeatedly asking “Is he the one” is just plain creepy. Jeez. These non thinking kook sheeple are just plain scary.
As for his grandfather, quite the fellow, he, if you could take Granny’s word for it. And she would be proud to see you “spelled the name right (Falkner!) I’m not particularly a student or devotee to Civil War military history, but the 2nd Mississippi Infantry to which Faulkner’s grandpa, later Governor Stone (whoo, whee the stories I have from him and his dealings with Great Granny!) and my own great grandfather were attached was known for its ferocity on the field of battle and its loyalty to the Lost Cause post War…
“As I Lay Dying…”
Faulkner wove various tales from local lore into his novels. The story as it opens has the woman looking from her death bed as her husband built her coffin. Faulkner uses this as his introduction to the bizarre tale of carting the body about the countryside. My mother’s animosity was that the story of the coffin and the story of the shlepping of the corpse were from two different sources. The opening was that of Miss Vinnie Stroup, a neighbor and friend of my mother’s whose desire was that she be buried in the coffin built by her husband. When she died, my mother was the one who in the “laying out” combed out Miss Vinnie’s hair, her pride. Mama, and the others in the area, had seen the building of the coffin and the placing of Miss Vinnie’s bed so that she could watch as something “sacred and holy.” Now, that lot that went carting the body around? They were not so highly respected and their actions not considered quite so “holy and sacred.” That Faulkner would weave the two together was, to Mama and Granny, an act of socio-cultural heresy!
As for “Intruder in the Dust,” that quote that sparked this is from it and taken, as is often the case, completely out of context. Personally, I think you will find it most intriguing from the race-relations aspect in time and place. And, yes, it is pretty much a true story and one of those that Faulkner stuck to the real story on.
He is one of the few of Faulkner’s contemporaries who actually understood what it was that Faulkner was doing. Faulkner was not so much concerned with “the South” per se as he was with the human condition. As he said, his own “little postage stamp of earth” was only the backdrop against which it played out, the place he “knew first hand.”
And “The Reivers?”
Faulkner said of it that he had spent his entire career to be able to tell that story! Even Granny had to admit that Grandpa Faulkner came across there with the proper respect…
And for my money, about one of the best film adaptations ever done! Steve McQueen at his finest…amazing his understanding of that role…
“…ain’t even 11 years old yet, and already been cut up in a wh*rehouse brawl…”

We are in the last throes of white power.
They cling to deflecterbation, a failed ideology and a failed party.
December 27th, 201212:09 pm
Oy! Heretics! Hawg jowls are FRIED like fatback!
These non thinking kook sheeple are just plain scary.
….sez teh d00d who obviously misunderstands a simple Newsweek cover.
December 27th, 201212:10 pm
Debbie and Josep
Have not identified any of my quotes yet. Felt sure someone would.
Nope. That’s a little too simplistic. We’re not sore at all. We’re just getting our popcorn ready to watch the coming implosion. I think the people who are really going to be sore are all those gubment dependents when the shyte hits the fan. I just have one thing that I would like for you guys to remember. YOU VOTED FOR IT!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!
December 27th, 201212:12 pm
Falkners uncle of cousin had his grandfathers diary. Falkner would come to his house drunk and read the diary. Used as a source for Go Down, Moses and other tales. Uncle’s wife had no use for him.
Keep Up the Good Fight!
Aquagirl, there is no misunderstanding, its intentional stupidity to provide pure nonsense in a bid for blog attention trolling. But perhaps I am giving too much credit to the intelligence to actually comprehend by using the word “intentional”.
Aquagirl must be wearing her silhouetted Obama tshirt today and waiting for Obama to put gas in her tank. just click your heels honey and maybe your gas tank will be magically filled and your mortgage magically paid.
December 27th, 201212:13 pm
YOU VOTED FOR IT AND LOST !!!! HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Thulsa-you are indeed still whining over losing the election. And you will continue to whine during the next 8 years beginning in 2016 as we hold control once again.
Is your liver up to it?

REginald: But it seems to me, if I see “the messiah” or “the one” on this blog, it’s a guanrantee that that the poster is a conservative using it in an ironic manner?
Ha! Its a guarantee that they’re using it to back up a ridiculous point that not ONE DEM in office has ever said – - and as far as I can tell, not one dem has ever said period.
I’d actually never seen the quotes you cite before, but perhaps that’s because I don’t get my information from such well-known liberal pundits as Rarakhan, Foxx, and Winfrey
They’ll pull up a doctored youtube video, (like the one where Obama’s grandmother “said” Obama was born in Kenya); and use that as “proof”. Whereas if I pull up the actual report from the reporters that were actually THERE that day and HEARD what was said, you’ll see that “messiah” was never mentioned by Oprah OR Farrakahn.
In essence, it’s kinda stooopid for them to even ADD Farrakahn in the midst. Farrakahn doesn’t even BELIEVE in a messiah, so why would he liken Obama as one?
Cons, gotta love ‘em!

I must have missed something in your posts, but what “coming implosion” are you talking about and why are you so happy about it?
December 27th, 201212:16 pm
Called it! See those 12:01 posts to links on youtube!
DANG! I wonder if they ever get tired of being sooooo…………..ummmm……..sheepish, easily fooled by any kid with video equipment and a computer, predictable.
Not sure about them…fill me in….
You got over losing to Johnny Heisman so you can get over losing to our President.
December 27th, 201212:17 pm
I’m cool with it. Whoever is president doesn’t control my destiny. Perhaps you and the other kooks let other people determine your fates in life but I chose not to live that way. Doomy is gonna be set no matter who is potus. You? Not so much.
DDR ..Just feel like this today …enjoy the new arrivals in the moment as TIME flies
December 27th, 201212:18 pm
but what “coming implosion” are you talking about and why are you so happy about it?
Never mind that—I’d like to know his choice of beverage for today, that’s some kick-@$$ stuff.
December 27th, 201212:19 pm
Everybody loses eventually. No shame in losing one game to Johnny Heisman- a fantastic football player. All I know is that we are playing for a bcs title for the 3rd time in 4 years. Enjoy your visit to Shreveport or whatever minor shyte bowl you guys are playing in. You can watch us play in the big boy game later on.
December 27th, 201212:20 pm
doomy, really you are set? Glad to hear it so why are you still preying on the elderly selling them junk insurance? Isn’t that what you do for a living?
I think you do protest too much. YOu just wish you hadn’t admitted you voted for-what was his name again, the one that disappeared off the face of the earth-oh yeah Mittens!!!
December 27th, 201212:21 pm
Same as usual- coffee with stevia in the morning. Green tea with lemon juice the rest of the day and just plain water when I hit the gym. Its much healthier and better tasting than that kook koolaid you drink.
December 27th, 201212:24 pm
Thanks for the eplanation DDR – I’m sure you’re correct.
I get my news from reputable sources – I don’t listen to gossip or “features.” It’s funny how I’d never heard of “free gas” or “obamaphones” until conservative on this this blog tried to use them to deride the president and his supporters.
I also agree that most of the conservative inability to understand context and nuance is willful. They got nothin’, so they gotta troll.
December 27th, 201212:25 pm
LSU showed Johnny Heisman how to beat you.
We beat Johnny Heisman.
“preying on the elderly selling them junk insurance?”
Spoken like a true ignoramus. If any of my blue haired little ole ladies heard you say that they would beat you to death with their canes and walkers. The ones in wheelchairs would then run your dumbazz over. My clients all the loves the Doom and they damn sure love their Medicare supplements that pay every penny that Medicare doesn’t pay. If you’ve no clue as to what you’re talking about you really should just shut up.
December 27th, 201212:26 pm
No! I’m trimming Brosephus’ broad brush. He claimed it was Christian’s who call Obama “The Messiah.”
The “Liberals” here are not the ones on this blog referring to Obama as “messiah”. The only time the Liberals here even use that term in the same sentence as Obama’s name is to question why the Conservatives, most often the self-professed Christians here, refer to him in that manner. Why not post under your regular name and challenge me that way as opposed to creating sock puppets to do your work for you? That’s what a real man/woman would do.
December 27th, 201212:27 pm
Congrats on beating Johnny Heisman. But you didn’t beat us now did you? Or Florida for that matter.
josef – i LOVE talking books with you!! We should start a book club that only read the great works!! (I’m in one now and guess what we read for October? SHADES OF GRAY — how anyone could call that tripe something LITERARY is beyond me….)
Oscar: Falkners uncle of cousin had his grandfathers diary. Falkner would come to his house drunk and read the diary. Used as a source for Go Down, Moses and other tales. Uncle’s wife had no use for him.
No one recognized him for his genius! What’s that verse in the bible? “And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country, and in his own house.”
December 27th, 201212:28 pm
doomy-bit defensinve aren’t you old man?hahahahhahhahhahhahha
December 27th, 201212:31 pm
Yeah, we could not catch the football.
You had a fumble problem.
December 27th, 201212:34 pm
bit defensinve aren’t you old man?
Folks, if you find yourself screaming joyfully about impending economic collapses and old ladies assaulting people—get help. You either need an intervention or the appropriate dosage of lithium.
December 27th, 201212:36 pm
Debbie – 11:40
Have you read The Sound And The Fury?
Even with corporate media’s help and unlimited corporate donations you still lost.

December 27th, 201212:40 pm
No one recognized him for his genius!
His books were all out of print, until he made his acceptance speech when awarded the Nobel Prize in 1948. After hearing his speech, people took another look at his books. He was recognized then and his books starting being taught as literature.
December 27th, 201212:41 pm
Defensive? Not at all. I just don’t suffer fools lightly is all.
December 27th, 201212:44 pm
doomy-you should take aquagirl’s suggestion to heart.

Your 401 k’s will drop again thanks to the gop regulation of the fiscal cliff.
Then the gop will be out of the way of our economy for 13.
December 27th, 201212:48 pm
“if you find yourself screaming joyfully about impending economic collapses”
Your mind reading is failing you yet again. I take no pleasure in the demise of this great nation. I’m simply stating that I’m in a position that whatever happens I’m going to be ok through my own efforts.
And if you don’t understand what’s coming down in the future than I can’t cure you of typical liberal ignorance. Or can I? For a discounted fee of $100 an hour I’ll be happy to sit down with you for 4-8 hours and teach you some basic economics. It’ll be good for you because it will reduce your level of abject ignorance and it’ll be good for me because I will have done my good deed for the day.
December 27th, 201212:49 pm
“So, he’s a Nobel Prize winning lying old drunk.”
On the books you mentioned, no fan of the first two, “Go Down Moses” is more to my liking…
Yep. Tells you to what level we’ve sunk, doesn’t it?
December 27th, 201212:50 pm
You are a defeatist.
Our President brought America back from the w collapse.
Peace and prosperity are coming.
Ooops… meant “Light in August.”
stands for decibels
December 27th, 201212:51 pm
not that I was ever a fan of hers, but…
Oprah repeatedly asking “Is he the one” is just plain creepy.
What I said about Seinfeld, yesterday? Well, Thulsa, Oprah could afford to have you droned, make it look like an accident, AND replace all your neighbors’ houses with much nicer ones.
Not bad for a non thinking kook sheeple.
Puh-leeze. The vast majority of folks on this blog both on the left and on the right consider you an abject fool. I rarely agree with any of the leftists on here but if there is one thing many of us probably agree on it would be on the utter foolishness of your posts.
December 27th, 201212:54 pm
doomy-you are wrong again! I enjoy indigo’s posts. At least they are coherent unlike yours.
RB from Gwinnett
Debbie, “RB, just asking mind you, but what type of job do you think a Vet can get if he was in the military as a nuclear submarine munitions clerk? ”
I’d say anything in distribution or logistics would be good. It’s doubtful a “clerk” would ever be involved in the actual handling of nuclear materials and is more likely involved in the storage, security, and maintenance of the weapons. You obviously don’t know the difference in matching someone’s experience to the job and matching someone’s skill set. As an example, putting a person who lacks detail orientation in a detail oriented job is sure to fail regardless of how many years they’ve tried to do the job. But don’t fret, Debbie, most people who’ve never hired a person understand the difference, so you go back to your liberal fantasy land and keep demanding other people pay for all the crap you think is worthy.

Major IRONY…. must stop laughing. And then I read the post about teaching economics for $100/hr…… now my stomach hurt from all the laughing. I better call 911 of the impending doom of our country.
I almost had milk come out my nose but that is about to become very expensive thanks to GOP insanity.
December 27th, 201212:59 pm
“The vast majority of folks on this blog both on the left and on the right consider you an abject fool”
Mr. Doom – even YOU know that ^^^^ is nonsense. I’d be willing to wager that the “vast majority” have not offered an opinion.
Does it make you feel BIG to say things like that? That’s just sad.
December 27th, 20121:02 pm
“cons can’t get over getting crushed twice so they blame corporate media”
No I can handle losing an election because I know there will be another one soon. I not only blame the lame stream media but the morons who live on the east coast, west coast, and up north.
America has been surviving on “borrowed” time and money. All that has happened is the pols have turned back the clock. Only a handful are willing to make the tough decisions.
Ok, Mystery Meat, do tell us who some of the “handful” are who are “tough” Deciderer types. You can just start with the guys on the posters in your room, if you like.

“YOU VOTED FOR IT!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!”
Well you better e-mail Jay, someone is posting in your Doomypants.
Also, if you lapse into hysterical laughter when imagining terrible future events, you’re an even better candidate for an intervention or lithium. Or both.
Or you could stop lying that you’re not gleeful when you say things like HAHAHAHAAHAHA!!! That’s how psychologically normal people employ laughter.
Isn’t there some football on TV? You really need to go before you embarrass yourself further. You can be a semi-coherent reasonable guy but today you’re reeling around like Lindsey Lohan.
I will decline your $100 per hour lessons—and if you’re in the tutoring business, forgetting what you typed 10 minutes ago doesn’t exactly draw customers of any political or economic viewpoint.
December 27th, 20121:11 pm
fixed securities (treasury bills) a few months ago.
Reminds me. I really wish Team Obama would simply mint a few platinum trillion dollar coins and tell the Speaker to eff off.
the Treasury is allowed to unilaterally mint platinum coins. It could create a $1 trillion coin, and deposit it at its account at The Federal Reserve.
It sounds completely crazy, but … it’s even crazier to think that the U.S. would default arbitrarily just because of a dumb law.
So if the choice is between default and a trillion dollar platinum coin, we endorse the coin all the way.
So yeah, I realize it’d be crossing the Rubicon, but sheesh, didn’t the Speaker and his crew already go wading there by upping the stakes on the debt ceiling last year, anyway?

In the future, I suggest you not bother attempting to understand my posts as they are obviously beyond your comprehension.
Oscar — RE: Your quotes — were they from “As I lay dying?” Had to google them, but you are truly a fan if you knew some of the more obscure quotes from the book!
I only remember the more “famous ones” (like GWTW’s “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn”); and not all of them.
You sir, can talk Book with me anytime!!
“I feel like a wet seed wild in the hot blind earth.”
December 27th, 20121:24 pm
Seriously, it’s just sad the the GOP has abdicated all responsiblity here. They’ve put themselves in a postion where, if they act with sanity, their electorate will dump them.
Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea for them to put all their eggs in the “conservative crazy” basket, and kick out any republican who could be characterized as “moderate.” Now they’re forced to work against the US’s best interests, if they hope for re-election.
They totally deserve the azz-whuppin’ they’re gonna get in 2014. They deserve much worse, actually.
December 27th, 20121:25 pm
Hmmm a poster who doesn’t suffer fools lightly but has no problem making foolish claims about messiahs, the destruction of the county, how he is set for life but another poster is not, references kook koolaid…
All of his posts “[s]poken like a true ignoramus. … If you’ve no clue as to what you’re talking about you really should just shut up. Its clear he should not have to suffer himself.

December 27th, 20121:31 pm
It’s odd (or perhaps not) that almost without exception, one can tell a if poster is conservative by looking for name-calling, absurd claims, and use of absolute terms in relative situations.
Did I include willful misinterpretation?
December 27th, 20121:32 pm
So. How’s that Republican master plan working out these days.
President Obama will send another scaled back plan to avert some of the fiscal cliff but the gop are cowering at home.
December 27th, 20121:33 pm
“In the future, I suggest you not bother attempting to understand my posts as they are obviously beyond your comprehension.”
You’re right. Gobbledeegook is beyond my comprehension. But then again I can’t interpret duck quack either.
December 27th, 20121:35 pm
One year after Obama was elected, I was selling cars. There was a big tent sale with a gigantic tent where all the region’s salesman were assembled for an event. Suddenly a limosine pulled up and a man wearing an Obama mask emerged carrying a briefcase stuffed with five and ten dollar bills, (mostly ones, though). He immediately began to throw fistfulls of cash up in the air as he moved through the throng of salesmen. At least 80 salesmen began scrambling on the ground like a game of Twister grabbing up the waves of falling bills. The chaos lasted at least five minutes. This one fin landed on my beer gut and before I could get it someone snatched it right off me. (true). Now the Obama mask did have a simian tinge to it so the political attitude was blatantly obvious: Obama is a socialist monkey. I managed to get $79. Most got thirty to fifty. Some got $150. Then Obama got back in the limo and disappeared. I gave away most of the $79 to a single mom who worked part time there as a customer spotter and house snitch (lotdropping, stacking, skating, and smoking). I felt humiliated and abused after it was all over. The owner (100 dealerships!) must have had a good laugh. I sold 23 cars that month and made eight thousand dollars ($5K after taxes) and won a free steak dinner. I guess it is kinda funny. But you stay humble in the car biz.
Because libs never post insults or name call. Perhaps you missed some of Joe mama’s earlier posts or many of the other lib posts with the name calling or insults. Or perhaps you can’t take off your liberal tinted glasses to see these things. Your objectivity is sorely lacking sir.
December 27th, 20121:36 pm
That nymag article, Blues Cruise, was quite telling.
December 27th, 20121:39 pm
You left that out, along with aggressively insisting we celebrate the love of baby Jeebus OR F*(K OFF AND DIE. Poor December 25th was left urine-soaked by cons marking their alleged territory.
December 27th, 20121:40 pm
what about a willful suspension of disbelief?
December 27th, 20121:41 pm
“Because libs never post insults or name call”
Did I mention “inappropriate use of absolutes”? I KNOW I said “almost without exception.”
Thank you, Mr Doom.

I pity Jay for the hangover he will have when he finally sobers up.
Joe Hussein Mama
Doom — “Because libs never post insults or name call. Perhaps you missed some of Joe mama’s earlier posts”
Doom, man up.
If I slam someone, I’m man enough to own up to it. You should follow that example instead of going ‘but MOM! THAT guy did it TOO!”
Grow up, son.
December 27th, 20121:43 pm
Aquagirl — “Poor December 25th was left urine-soaked by cons marking their alleged territory.”
Ouch. A little *too* accurate, IMO.
December 27th, 20121:44 pm
“you’re an even better candidate for an intervention or lithium”
Aquagirl, that’s the 2nd straight time you’ve used that. Can’t you be a little more original. You’re starting to sound like tired old kamspam the lame repetitive post bunny.
In the past I’ve usually been very respectful of you Aquagirl but the last several times you’ve posted towards me and in particular today you’ve taken some snipes at me. So naturally if you’re willing to engage in nastiness then I’ve no problem taking the gloves off with you. If you want to post in a civilized manner to me then I’ll reciprocate. But if you want to be nasty and try and match wits against me then we can do that too. Good luck with that.
December 27th, 20121:45 pm
” Perhaps you missed some of Joe mama’s earlier posts or many of the other lib posts with the name calling or insults’
If Joe Mama jumped off the roof, would YOU jump off the roof?

OMG. From the poster who posts (pointing, laughing) after his posts. Hot damn that is fun-knee.
December 27th, 20121:49 pm
Doom — “If you want to post in a civilized manner to me then I’ll reciprocate.”
OMG. From the poster who needs half a page to post DOOMSTRIKE and a handful of exclamation points. Hoo-boy, that’s a knee-slapper.
“OMG. From the poster who posts (pointing, laughing) after his posts.”
Only because it irritates the living daylights out of you, son. The more you let on what bothers you, the more I’ll do it. (pointing, laughing)
I also agree that most of the conservative inability to understand context and nuance is willful. They got nothin’, so they gotta troll.
Amen Brother. Amen.
paulo977: DDR ..Just feel like this today …enjoy the new arrivals in the moment as TIME flies
Thanks paulo that was nice (and beautiful) of you! Enjoyed it.
FYI — Was Romney’s “47% comment” doctored too?
No. And today boys and girls is Another lesson in small answers for small brains.
FYI — “the reporters that were actually THERE”???????????????? The same reporters who are out to “heal” the lame??????????????
Are you scared of reporters now TOO?!? Dang! Grow a pair why don’t ya?!?
I have you figured out. You’re not only lame, you’re a tool.
Better a tool, than a rabid simple minded fool who denies the existence of science, math, and common sense. Just saying…….
Oscar @ 12:37 – Dang! I guess I was off by about 4 books!

Ooh another FAulknerite!! Check out the big brains on indigo!! Did you like the book? It is ALSO one of my favorite, “faulkners”!
josef: Yep. Tells you to what level we’ve sunk, doesn’t it?
Word. (shudder) AND to make it even worse, the “ladies” of the bookclub, (some as old as my mother), start talking about their sexual fantasies that they’re having after reading each chapter!!! EEEEWWWWW!! Some things are best left unsaid and falls into the TMI category!!
A Bookclub should be about the book as art — A Fredrich of Hollywood’s Club should be about sexual fantasies! IMO!
RB from Pluto: I’d say anything in distribution or logistics would be good. It’s doubtful a “clerk” would ever be involved in the actual handling of nuclear materials and is more likely involved in the storage, security, and maintenance of the weapons
As usual you are WRONG! First off, I just made up the job — like how you make up “facts” — figured I get you back before the start of 2013; secondly how’d you pull “logistics and distrubution” out your azz like that? Do they teach that in conned school?
December 27th, 20121:50 pm
Jeez dude. Some of you guys are so whiny. JHM, Aquagirl, etc. You start off sniping, insulting and name calling and then when I respond in kind ya’ll start whining like children and crying foul. Ya’ll shouldn’t be throwing rocks from your glass houses.
December 27th, 20121:51 pm
Doom — “Ya’ll shouldn’t be throwing rocks from your glass houses.”
Said the master of the art.
Considering how every prognostication, prediction, estimate, and wild guess you’ve made here over the last couple years has either been dead wrong or a blatant lie, I doubt you’ll find many takers for your offer of economic tutoring here, even if you offered it for free.
December 27th, 20121:55 pm
The cons seem to be unhappy. Did their letters to Santa go unanswered.
December 27th, 20121:56 pm
“Only because it irritates the living daylights out of you, son. The more you let on what bothers you, the more I’ll do it. (pointing, laughing)”
There goes Joe Mama with his mind reading FAIL yet again. It doesn’t bother me in the least. I hope you keep doing it. Why? Because it just shows your immaturity and everyone can see it. I mean come on. The (pointing. laughing) stuff is 6th grade material.
And btw when you start off referring to other posters as “son” in an attempt to be degrading its just a tacit admission that you’re already angry. I think you need some of that lithium that Aquagirl was talking about. You sure seem like an angry little elf.

Better a tool, than a rabid simple minded fool who denies the existence of science, math, and common sense. Just saying…….
my broad brush is better and broader than your broad brush!

“Considering how every prognostication, prediction, estimate, and wild guess you’ve made here over the last couple years has either been dead wrong or a blatant lie, ”
Then perhaps you would like to detail some of these failed prognostications, estimates, and other blah blah of yours.
“I doubt you’ll find many takers for your offer of economic tutoring here, even if you offered it for free.”
I can’t make you see if you refuse to open your eyes. Nor can I teach you if you refuse to open your mind.

Speaking of predictions, I kinda enjoyed this, even though I don’t know this David Weigel fella from a hole in the ground:
particularly liked the conclusion:
There is much more to this business than prediction, which is why the pundit who did it best—Nate Silver—eschewed gut feelings and Advisers Speaking on the Condition of Anonymity for data. Next year, with its promise of constant fiscal showdowns, will require a combination of hard math and careful reporting.

Doomy, go sleep off the hangover. You’re cranky and trying to pick fights with everyone here. You came rolling in with a stick up your bum for some unknown reason. (um, not that there’s anything wrong with that.) You can keep it right there, I’m not assisting in any adjustments or removal attempts.
If you want cranky fightfests post at Kyles. But you’ll have to wait a few days, the con blog can’t operate without a daddy because they $#!^ themselves when unattended.
Oddly enough the lib blog will be open so you can complain about how nasty libs are with their name-calling and insults.

Doom — “There goes Joe Mama with his mind reading FAIL yet again. It doesn’t bother me in the least.”
Sorry, son. You already admitted this past summer that you hate it. Mindreading fail or just more Doom Dishonesty? I think we both know the answer to that.
“I hope you keep doing it.”
“Why? Because it just shows your immaturity and everyone can see it. I mean come on. The (pointing. laughing) stuff is 6th grade material.”
Well, you’d certainly be the go-to guy for identifying 6th-grade material here, Doom.
“And btw when you start off referring to other posters as “son” in an attempt to be degrading its just a tacit admission that you’re already angry.”
Stop calling people “missy,” then, hypocrite. (giggling)
“I think you need some of that lithium that Aquagirl was talking about. You sure seem like an angry little elf.”
Psst. You sell medical insurance. You’re not a doctor.

It’s a DOOMSTRIKE!
Thanks for brushing all these cats the wrong way, Thulsa Doom!
