An entrepreneur, would see it as method to sell those loud ass Kirby vacuum cleaners, or pots & pans door to door.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 2:15

It just so happens that a glass of wine in a bar goes for 3 fiddy.....just sayin'.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 2:18

Selling pot door to door might work...not so sure about pots & pans, Slack.....kind bud @ 3 fiddy an ounce.

So does a bottle of best vintage Mogen David, Loner.

You got dat right, Ben. The brown bag that holds the bottle is the most efficient way to go.....20 million winos can't all be wrong.

By: slacker on 11/15/12 at 2:24

We should call in an expert.. where's Rasp?

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 2:25

Dean Martin said it best:

Yup... aged on the back of the truck... with the all flavor complexity of fermented cane sugar mixed with Juicy Juice.

By: BenDover on 11/15/12 at 2:30

The harmonica in that was great, Loner.

By: slacker on 11/15/12 at 2:34

Loner, Dean recorded that, along with other country songs, in Nashville in the early 80's.
I believe your idol ''Boots'' played on the session.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 2:56

Great harmonica part...did I miss the sax part?

Yes, Boots was and shall forever remain my hero. When you Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Round the Christmas Tree" this year, listen for Boots' great tenor sax solo....pure gold.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 2:57

s/h/b "when you hear Brenda Lee's..."

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 2:59

"Little old wine drinker, me" has the words, "Nashville' and "Tennessee" in the lyrics...gotta love that.

Let's see ... we can have guns in bars, guns in parks, guns in parking lots ... and probably pretty soon guns in daycare centers. But selling newspapers on street corners is too dangerous!

By: BenDover on 11/15/12 at 3:01

Ahhh... blow it out your @$$ Burch.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 3:04

Neil Diamond had his store-bought woman:

Loner, No sax on Wine Drinker. The album was ''The Country Side Of Dean Martin'' had 22 tracks on it. All the local session guys played on it.
Ben the harmonica was probably Charlie McCoy.

By: BenDover on 11/15/12 at 3:10

This from one of the CP ads sounds promising.

Mike:

Sounds like you have a cause for tomorrow's editorial, unless of course there
still more that needs to be told on the good Bishop!

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 3:11

And from the rock libraries we get this odd compilation:

I have no idea what you guys have been talking about, but every since the election Ive become darned near obsessed with reading right wing and conservative opt -ed pieces regarding "What to do now?" or "what happened" "What we can/should learn"..

It has been fascinating, especially reading those that continue to spew the same "advice" or reasoning they did right up to the election. Those advocating running the party even further to the right, or getting an even MORE conservative candidate... it's really been interesting to see "supposedly" smart people that are in complete and total denial and refuse to accept their situation.

Hey Mike, welcome to the forum....my point was that people in the street, hawking merchandise or services (windshield cleaning for example), to motorists waiting for the traffic light to change is a situation fraught with danger.

Hit by a car? Call: 444-4444.

Peddling papers to pedestrians is another matter.

By: BenDover on 11/15/12 at 3:25

What can you do when they trot out the shockingly still-popular uber-propagandist Bill Clinton with the Big Lie telling everyone not to believe your lying eyes and that Obama is really 'President Thrifty'; and then run that commercial 24/7 on the Weather Channel and AMC for 2 months straight in the lead up to the election.... geezzz, dude... how do you compete with that?

Nobody made the case that the economy has just been treading water because Obama was blowing all our grandchildren's future earnings like sailors on shore leave. They just all want to close their eyes and have faith in their god... John Maynard Keynes and clink their campaign glasses in celebration that Hurricane Sandy broke a lot of damn windows.

By: slacker on 11/15/12 at 3:26

Skeptic..I'm betting Burch mentions how George Bush appointed Petraeus to Central Command, sitting up the future Benghazi tragedy.
While Mitt Romney stood by, counting his money, and said nothing.

By: slacker on 11/15/12 at 3:33

Hey Burch.. they also have dynamite on construction sites. Its not really relevant to selling newspapers in traffic.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 3:36

Ben, was that the Metro Council meeting in that video?

Bacon, Bourbon & Bluegrass....Boars, Booze & Banjos....Swine, Swizzle & Swift-kickin'....Babes, Boobs & Booty....sounds like hog heaven....pig paradise....sow city.

Are you planning to attend the event, Ben?

By: Captain Nemo on 11/15/12 at 3:37

BenDover if you had paid attention to the fancy pigeon you would have known that he has been post from W. Palm since summer and that he is coming for a visit and then he will return to Florida to winter.

The poor boy tell so many lies he can't kept up.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/15/12 at 3:40

yogi your 10:26 post shows your still write like a dumb ass.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 3:40

Ben sez:: "Nobody made the case that the economy has just been treading water because Obama was blowing all our grandchildren's future earnings like sailors on shore leave. "

Ben actually mentioned Bill Clinton and used the word "blowing" without bringing Monica Lewinsky into the conversation.

By: slacker on 11/15/12 at 3:41

Nemo... Rasp. could clarify on the bum wine debate.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/15/12 at 3:43

Old Roy that his idiot son was on 5% his.

I'll bet a bottle of quality Ripple, that Bubba was guaranteed a Supreme Court appointment for Hillary, if he campaigned hard for the anointed one.

By: bfra on 11/15/12 at 3:52

Hillary would be better than the majority that are presently on the Supreme Court.

By: slacker on 11/15/12 at 4:07

bfra, I agree that she would be an improvement over Ginsburg.
Hillary said she was tired. She can get in a lot of naps with group.
Thomas sleeps 24/7, they just carry him out in his chair, and no one notices.

By: bfra on 11/15/12 at 4:11

slacker - Sounds about right! Thomas isn't fit for any court, much less the Supreme Court. Ginsburg isn't much better.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 4:20

It's 4:20 in the Hempire State.

By: slacker on 11/15/12 at 4:20

bfra, when Thomas says.. ''I'm going for a ''Coke'' anybody care for one?''
He hears a resounding.. no thanks Clarence!

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 4:24

Hillary's sell-by date has expired...the POTUS usually likes to pick youngish judges, so as to bugger the court for decades to come....it's their lasting legacy.

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 4:26

Coca-Cola and puberty just naturally go together...it's natural law, right, Clarence?

By: BenDover on 11/15/12 at 4:35

Thank you Loner for correcting my fox paw...

By: BenDover on 11/15/12 at 4:43

I think I will try to attend that one Loner... might dust off the V8 miata and take a ride out that way. Natchez Trace and the bridges there are still beautiful even in the dead of winter I suspect.

By: slacker on 11/15/12 at 4:43

In some cultures..placing a pubic hair on a coke means.. ''I really do fancy you dahling''

By: yogiman on 11/15/12 at 4:46

gdiafante,

I learned a long time ago if you're trying to tell a fool something you'll have to repeat yourself several times before they can learn the facts about.what you're talking about.

You say your man Barry is just in that office legally and isn't interested in becoming a dictator. Why is he issuing so many executive orders like the one I just read? You can ignore it or read it. You had better wake up, young man.

www.conservativeactionalerts.com2012/11/obama-new-dictatorship-executive-order/

May I repeat two dumb (to you) questions: Why does Barry refuse to identify himself and why has congress (especially the Senate) allowed it to happen?

I'd sure like the answers to those questions.

By: yogiman on 11/15/12 at 4:51

bfra,

You commented I never verify any of my posts and so you readily call me a liar. If I'm a liar, and you know it, why can't you verify your argument I'm lying?

By: bfra on 11/15/12 at 4:55

conservativeactionalert: And he doesn't have sense enough to know that is a BS site! He has been proved to be a liar on everything he posts and still wants someone to prove it again. Can't post what I am thinking!

By: bfra on 11/15/12 at 5:00

Hope that new computer of yogi's came with an arm & fist that will punch him right in the face everytime he types a lie or repeat of his BS.

By: yogiman on 11/15/12 at 5:08

Loner,

You commented about many Israelis hating Obama. Do you, perchance, have a comment why
Barry hates the Jews?

By: Loner on 11/15/12 at 5:20

The Clarence Thomas Blues:

I feel like pubes on a Coke can,
Nobody don't want me around.
Yeah, I feel like pubes on a Coke can,
Nobody don't want me around.

Ain't nobody quite that thirsty,
Ain't nobody quite that dry.
Ain't nobody don't want no crumbs,
From somebody's nasty hairy pie.

Lord, I feel like pubes on a Coke can,
Nobody don't want me around.
When I feel like pubes on a Coke can,
I feel like leavin' this damn town.
