You amaze me, dumba$$. Sometimes you can write a sentence like you was an English teacher. But generally, you can't put two words together in their proper place and spelled correctly.

Does it just depend on which hand you're using or who's writing it for you?

So, Loner is," a good writer, but absurd...."
Sounds like Norman Mailer, Hemmingway, Vonneget.
He's in good company.

Again, irony.

Speaking of the loser, his victory transition site was up briefly and some guy got screen shots, before they took it down....very interesting stuff...the sloganeering especially....check it out here:

Now, I'm an "absurd dumba$$", who "can't put two words together in their proper place and spelled correctly. "?

Guilty as charged....nolo contendere.

If's funny, bfra.

I also find it amusing when you and your fellow posters think you're wright and all others are wrong... because they don't think like y'all do. You accuse me and the other "trolls" in your line of vision as telling lies, but it seems to be okay that you only have to think the subject was a lie because you didn't know the subject.

Is that why you never remark on what you're calling a lie? All that seems to be necessary is for you, and yours, to comment... you lied, because I know it's a lie.

I, and others, would like to know what we lied about. Any answers?

By: gdiafante on 11/15/12 at 10:39

I think he's referring to Nemo. That's his term of endearment for our beloved captain. My guess is he was looking in the mirror when he came up with it.

I've never thought of myself as a Wright...I mean there are so many...the brothers, Frank Lloyd...

The Rasp is right, Yogi does provide a service here....but it's not nice to laugh at another person's egregious shortcomings...at least that is what Sister Mary Redemptia told us....so, I try to feel pity for Yogi, not anger or contempt....I don't always succeed, of course.

By: yogiman on 11/15/12 at 10:47

Amazing, bfra.

You're absolutely right in your comment about not remembering lies. I was taught as a child to always tell the truth, because you'll remember what you said when telling the truth. But if you tell a lie you can't remember what you said by the time you get it our of your mouth.

That's true... right?

By: gdiafante on 11/15/12 at 10:49

You must've hit home, bfra...lol

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 10:50

Thank you, Darge for elevating me to that lofty level of wordsmith....I thank the nuns for any verbal skills that I may exhibit...as for the content of my rants, well, I blame the devil....it's a karmic balance.

By: yogiman on 11/15/12 at 10:54


I often find you acting like a comedian. You so quickly make a comment to an enemy "troller" who makes a spelling error but you never make a comment about a spelling error by one of you fellow posters. Is their way of erroneous spelling okay?

My crystalline spheres of clairvoyance detect the presence of John Galt, reading this webpage; as usual, he waits to ambush with a single snappy one-liner....you've been outed by my orbs, John Galt.

By: yogiman on 11/15/12 at 11:02


I believe you'll find that 47% that voted for Barry had their hands out. Barry will offer anything he can get his hands on to buy you out.

By: yogiman on 11/15/12 at 11:10

Agreed, gdiafante, I also misspell; as does all others who write a sentence... including you.

If you look back, I've had a couple of your fellow posters "correcting" me like it was a "job" for them. But when I "fight back" when they feel like making me look ridiculous they begin leaving me alone. After all, they misspell, too.

By: bfra on 11/15/12 at 11:12

d7 - Another lie posted by the local troll! He can never offer any backup for his claims, he just likes to wallow in false accusations.

By: bfra on 11/15/12 at 11:18

The totally ridiculous looking rediculous & admits it!

By: gdiafante on 11/15/12 at 11:19

I will temporarily break the ignore function only to set the record straight. You're an undeniable twit. That's fact, and everyone knows it. You regurgitate the same tired rant day after day despite having been proven wrong on practically every occassion.

You're a freaking joke...a sad, pathetic, idiotic joke. I can only pray that you're a dying breed and that one day your useless, worthless and pointless existence will be forgotten as easily as you seem to forget basic Constitutional facts.

Now, I return you to your regular programming.

By: yogiman on 11/15/12 at 11:19

Well, have fun, children. I've gotta set my new putter up. I hope I can learn more 'computering'. I hope it'll keep my spelling correct and don't let me get caught anymore.

By: bfra on 11/15/12 at 11:22

gdiafante - Ditto!

By: yucchhii on 11/15/12 at 11:23

1- who cares who voted for who...it matters not...WHY, you ask? Because when you go to the polls, it's already been decided WHO WILL OCCUPY THE OFFICE!!! This is fact!! I found this out some time ago by someone I knew who WAS a VOTING OFFICIAL!! Yours and MY vote DO NOT COUNT!! I don't care how much you try to ridicule me for saying this, BUT TRUTH IS TRUTH no matter how you slice it or dice it!! "IF" our votes truly counted, then 1- WHY do people who start with the race that REALLY want to do right, never make it to the ballet when you go to "VOTE"? All your left with are CRIMINALS! That's "IF" your vote counted and the USA keeps getting DEEPER AND DEEPER in the HOLE!! So FORGET about who voted for who...that is IRRELEVENT!!! 2- As for the judge to rule against the "Contributer", I say that was a wise decision. It makes sense..of couse for anything to make sense to anyone, they need to possess what is called "COMMON" sense. I realize that that "COMMON" sense is NOT so common these days. You realize that when you see people who ACTUALLY persue "STUPIDITY". THEY "WANT" TO BE "STUPID"!!! THEY THINK IT'S A COOL FASHION....Lol. example: Wearing your pants below your butt...I never could understand why anyone wants to make themselves look like they've been TAGGED in the butt...or are they LOOKING TO BE TAGGED? They also look like they're carrying a LOAD in their pants and walk like they have a deli pickle up their butt!! Do you get what I'm getting at here? I don't think I can explain it any more without getting GRAPHIC. Those who HAVE "COMMON" sense that read this will understand.
3- The reason why I agree with the judge is simple...Simple = "COMMON" sense...it was explained as SIMPLE as possible in the article and SIMPLY requires some "COMMON" sense to understand it. If you don't understand it, that is very SIMPLE to understand why...because you do NOT possess "COMMON" sense. As another saying goes...."YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID!"

Here's the latest on the unfolding unholiness in the Holy Land:


I tried to comment on that board, but all 3 attempts have failed...when the Israelis go on a war footing the censorship increases dramatically.

We should all note that the Israeli PM and his Defense Chief both signed the death warrant for Ahmed Jabari, leader of Hamas' military wing in Gaza.

Israel routinely uses these extrajudicial "targeted killings' as a tool of statecraft. Over the years, dozens, perhaps hundreds of these targeted killings have been carried out by elements of the Israeli government.

This is nothing new...the Israelis assassinated Count Folke Bernadotte in September, 1948...he was the UN's first peace negotiator....they never repented.

Bearing these facts in mind, is the idea that the Mossad snuffed JFK, in 1953, all that far-fetched? JFK said "NO" to Israeli nukes....LBJ said "OK" to Israeli nukes.

Reports state that 85% of US-Israeli Jews who voted for our POTUS chose Mitt Romney.

Obama is hated by many Israelis.

Our "closest ally" considers BHO to be an existential threat....not so, with Joe Biden. ...May God preserve Mr. Obama from harm.

By: BenDover on 11/15/12 at 11:34

You keep givin' 'em hell Yogi. Society at large wasn't smart enough to throw Obama out on his real merits so an appeal to moron element with the birther crap might be in order.

Don't pay attention to them... keep up the good fight, Sir Yogi Quixote.

By: yucchhii on 11/15/12 at 11:38

Hey BENDOVER: I know you use a dum username to avoid detection by people who KNOW you to be a STUPID indiviual. Just like JUGHEAD, I will point out, that the USA has had wars to preserve our many rights that we enjoy here. The freedom of expression is one of those many rights that men and woman fought and DIED to preserve. You as well as JUGHEAD have that right to excorsize that ability.
However, when expressing your opinion, you should also have some sort of "INTELLIGENCE" level about what you say. To have "A CLUE" about what you say. In other words you should have been educated about these "VAGRANTS" as you call them in a DEGRADING fashion. It's very degrading to say something about somebody and NOT know what the hell your talking about. I can see by the way you "EXPRESS" yourself that you know absolutely NOTHING about HOMELESS! If you have never been there...you have NO CLUE!! So, you as well as JUGHEAD need to take your feet out of your mouths and give the muscles in your legs a rest. Before you say another word, THINK anout it and RESEARCH the subject. Stop making yourself look like a politician and letting a turd fall out of your mouth whenever you open it!!!

Yucchi is on Red Bull Jager bombs?

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 11:52

The Flying Stag...the Turbojager....Red Bull & Jagermeister...gets 'em wired like that.
Am I right, Yuch?

By: yogiman on 11/15/12 at 11:56

I'm back, children. All I had to do was plug it in and turn it on.

bfra, on your calling me a liar about Barry "Soetoro, how much backup do you need beyond the "autobiography" written by Barack Obama? Haven't you read it? If he's such a great man in your mind, why not.

I've got more and offered it to you and the others on this site, but you never looked into it... because it was a lie; in your minds. You can so quickly call me a liar on it even you don't know what it read.

And by the way, have you Obama fans noticed Barry's hair has turned black again? Did he make it grey alluding himself to be a "wise old man" or did he dye back it to make himself look like a wise young man?

By: bfra on 11/15/12 at 12:01

The liar troll has never offer a credible back up link as long as he has been posting BS on this site!

By: bfra on 11/15/12 at 12:04

Bet this is breaking Romney's whiney lil heart:

Reuters) - Chrysler Group LLC, the U.S. automaker majority owned by Fiat SpA, said on Thursday it will invest $238 million to boost engine and truck production in Michigan and add up to 1,250 jobs to meet new demand.

I thought yucchhii was a peninsula in southern Mexico.

What did Yogi mean by, "it"?

A. an industrial-grade vibrating butt plug

B. an electrified tin-foil helmet-receiver

C. an new blender for the bar

D. an electrified, razor wire fence

E. None of the above.

Laughed my @ss off, Slack....your 12:18 post was superb.

By: slacker on 11/15/12 at 12:29

The federal judge got it right. No one, should be selling anything on city streets... no matter how noble your cause, that includes all charities.
But Hookers should be permitted on the sidewalks in the Dickerson road area, its grandfathered in, and its a Nashville tradition.

By: slacker on 11/15/12 at 12:33

Loner, who is this guy? Hopefully staff will notice he escaped from a back window, and get the nets out for the hunt.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 12:33

Dickerson road? You mean, Dick-her-son road? Where boys become men?

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 12:36

Yuch works for The Contributor? Probably Editor-In-Chief.

By: bfra on 11/15/12 at 12:36

Good ones slacker & Loner!

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 12:39

...bath salts...I'm still laughing, Slack.

By: slacker on 11/15/12 at 12:39

That's the one Loner. Penicillin vending machines on site.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 12:43

Dickerson Rd. would be a great venue for a live bait shop....the hats & Tee-shirts would feature this text: "I Got My Crabs @ the Dickerson Rd. Bait Shop"

By: govskeptic on 11/15/12 at 12:46

Don't know how it can be called a Victory even those the City claims it won. For
the Judge to in affect be issuing a permit for these salespeople to roam the
neighborhoods and going door to door is a hell of a lot more invasive than
standing anywhere on the streets. Can the City now restrict that implied
or factual door to door permit?

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 1:01

Good point, Gov...sounds like a federal OK to peddle the paper door to door.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 1:04

DING DONG....Homeless calling.....Buy the paper.....or face the consequences. I love it.

By: BenDover on 11/15/12 at 1:05

There but for the grace of God go I, yucchhii. I know I'm just another breakdown away from the streets myself but hopefully I won't be so damaged that I'll feel the need to stick it to the man and devalue the property values for those who escaped to the suburbs by hanging out on street corners harassing people who works for their money.


By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 1:07

It will be tricks or treats in Brentwood all year long....DING DONG....dammit, another homeless guy peddling that damn paper....fourth one today.

By: govskeptic on 11/15/12 at 1:09


DING DONG..LoL .... Will be like Halloween everyday....Buy my paper or else!

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 1:14

LOL on the link you provided, Ben....does The Contributor sell for 3 fiddy?
