Why does bud make things up to suit hers twisted life.

It doesn't take a genius to fact check on the internet but it sure takes a moron to believe pop up ads and chain emails! LOL

By: bfra on 11/13/12 at 8:31

LOL on that one Blanket!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/13/12 at 8:31

Seriously, bfra!

By: bfra on 11/13/12 at 8:32

Trolls need to learn, if you tell the truth, you don't have to have a good memory. Compliments of Judge Judy!

Rasputin I was driving in the old neighborhood last week. There was an old store at the corner of Charlotte and Lellytett. Do you know what was the name of it. There is a clothing store there now.

Good morning ladies & generals,

Kosh's sex- ed post was enlightening, you can learn stuff here
Next week.. how to rub one out in public, without getting caught.

Samoan...Simoleons, looks like Rasp. is gonna be pan-handling, at the Palm restaurant today. The downtown library will be glad to be rid of him for a while.
Rasp will be wearing his signature spats, over white tennis shoes.

OMG has our own pop-off Raspy flown the coop? LOL

PARIS (AP) — A man described as a modern-day Rasputin was convicted Tuesday of brainwashing three generations of an aristocratic French family for nearly a decade, swindling them of their fortune and their turreted manor.

By: bfra on 11/13/12 at 10:06

On second thought, couldn't be the pop-off one, his memory doesn't serve him well enough for that stunt.

By: gdiafante on 11/13/12 at 10:06

Blanket, Obama has all the power right now. If Congress does nothing, everyone's taxes go up. He has a plan and has repeatedly asked to have all the Bush Tax Cuts extended except the ones for those making over $250K.

This is really all on Congress, and they know it. I think something will be done, if only to postpone the cuts until Spring so they can more fully debate the issue.

By: brrrrk on 11/13/12 at 10:56

Got to love the way Raspy keeps beating that dead horse....

By: slacker on 11/13/12 at 11:04

So.. brrrrk, should the state set up a health insurance exchange, or leave it to the feds?

By: yogiman on 11/13/12 at 12:13

Did Judge Judy also teach you if you so readily accuse someone of lying you should be able to tell them what they're lying about, bfra?

You must have missed that class.

By: gdiafante on 11/13/12 at 12:18


My guess slacker is they let the Feds do it. I'm not saying they're lazy, but they're lazy. And, I would think that the states that are reluctant to accept Obamacare would let the Feds deal with it anyway.

By: yogiman on 11/13/12 at 12:26

What do you Obama admirers think about 20 states (currently) setting out a form to leave the United States and form their own governments?

Could the united states become the un-united states if all 60 get in that group?

The United States has changed badly from the 'good ole days'. In my childhood, if an adult saw you do something wrong they whipped your a$$. And you didn't want your parents to find out about it because they would whip it again because you embarrassed them by misbehaving in front of other adults. And you could bet your a$$ their whipping would be harder than the neighbors.

By: Loner on 11/13/12 at 12:56

Boy, this board tends to suck today....an uninteresting topic followed by troll droppings.

Shall we change the subject?

By: yogiman on 11/13/12 at 12:56


I made a comment to you yesterday. If you didn't see it, I'll repeat it. I said I'm very jealous of you because you have a huge amount of knowledge through your computer and asked if I might ask a simple question.

I didn't receive an answer so I presumed it was too late and you didn't read it.

I asked if you could explain how Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama was determined to be a Constitutionally eligible candidate for the presidency after he advertised he was born in Kenya for 16 years... before he claimed to being born in Hawaii in 2007. (you know, the year he entered the presidential race)

I might also note his last legally know name was Barry Soetoro. If he did, when did he change his name back to Barack Obama?

Thanks for the info.

I also mentioned if you would give me that knowledge I would do y'all a favor and shut the hell up on the subject.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/12 at 12:57

I say the next anyone tries to leave the Union, we execute them and all there genetic kin.

By: gdiafante on 11/13/12 at 12:58

Forgive me, yogi, but you're a lying sack of sh!t.

Here ended the lesson...and [click]

Or we could send them to Israel and let decide what to do with them.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/12 at 1:03

Hay Loner! Whats up.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/12 at 1:04

The droppings all seem to think their lost is more important than child abuse.

By: Loner on 11/13/12 at 1:16

Same old, same old, Captain....winter has arrived here...dull, dreary and cold...other than that, I'm fine.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/12 at 1:24

The sun is shining here, but the air is a little nippy.

Trolls still full of it.

By: Loner on 11/13/12 at 1:35

Just in case anyone wondered, we now have a clue as to why the US has been bogged down in Afghanistan for over ten years now...the top brass was sending thousands of pages of love letters to their mistresses, instead of prosecuting the ill-advised war.

General Allen, if sacked, will be the 4th top US general in Afghanistan to screw up royally...and we plan to sit in that hellhole of a place for two more years.

They worried about gays and dopers in the military, so they they purged them from the ranks...this left a pool of horny but straight soldiers to do the fighting.....when we let the Puritans dictate military policy, .this is the sad result

By: bfra on 11/13/12 at 1:45

gdiafante - Same lie yogi told if Obama was re-elected. Just sticks his head back in the same place & lies again.

By: yogiman on 11/13/12 at 1:47

I guess I must accept you to be "one of the bunch", eh, gdifanate. You so quickly make a claim I'm wrong but you never make an explanation why. Don't you know?

I like being corrected. I like to know the facts. But I prefer someone who knows what they're bitching about when they [correct] me. Just convince my you're right.

You have to give it to him, he types very well for someone with his head up his ass. That's talent...but explains the smell.

By: bfra on 11/13/12 at 2:10

LOL gdiafante!

By: slacker on 11/13/12 at 2:13

gdiafante, I think you're right. Any problems that pops up can be blamed on Feds.

By: Loner on 11/13/12 at 2:13


"Since the Kelleys have been in Tampa, records show, one or both have been subjects of lawsuits nine times — including an $11,000 judgment against them that originated in Pennsylvania."

That's just the tip of the iceberg....the Kelley's were hosting huge, extravagant and expensive parties for top military brass...who was picking up the tab? The Kelleys are flakes....so, who sponsored them and why?

This scandal is still unfolding....did a foreign agent finance these parties? Who was pumping the smashed generals for info?

Let us hope that the FBI follows the money here...no matter where the trail leads.

By: bfra on 11/13/12 at 2:22

Loner - Interesting read!

By: bfra on 11/13/12 at 2:23

Everybody would have more money if they didn't pay bills.

By: bfra on 11/13/12 at 2:26

Today's topic article stated, they didn't want to see an innocent person go to jail. Neither would I, but more so, I don't want to see innocent children abused. They have no defense against abusers.

By: Loner on 11/13/12 at 2:27

Snippet from the Tampa Bay Times:

"They (The Kelley's) hired Abbe Lowell, a Washington lawyer who has represented clients such as former presidential candidate John Edwards and lobbyist Jack Abramoff. And the couple are employing crisis PR person Judy Smith, who has represented big names like Monica Lewinsky, Michael Vick and Kobe Bryant."

Since the Kelley's are known flakes, who picked up the tab for their lavish parties and who is paying for their legal team? Hopefully, the major media and the FBI will follow the money...regardless of the source.

Looks like the US military needs a complete shake-up...too many brown-nosers, like Petraeus and Allen, have worked their way to the top....too many bimbos and prostitutes have penetrated the Secret Service and our top US brass.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/12 at 2:33

Good call gdia, but he says the same thing over and over he could do it in his sleep.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/12 at 2:36

I think you are right on the money, about this being just the tip of the ice berg Loner.

By: bfra on 11/13/12 at 2:36

Nemo - Someone that repeats over & over is a dittohead! LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/12 at 2:52

In his case he is a butt head.

By: yogiman on 11/13/12 at 3:00

Is it because you're such an excellent spelling sentence writer yours stinks so much worse, gdaifante?

By: Loner on 11/13/12 at 3:14

Jill Kelley and her twin sister are Lebanese nationals....and Centcom did not think that was relevant? Centcom was enthralled with Jill Kelley...looks like everybody was mesmerized by the Lebanese Sleaze. All it takes to bring this country to its knees is a nice pair of tits and a shapely ass...time to clean house at the top of the military pyramid....these guys are a bunch of incompetent asses...no wonder we are bogged down in Afghanistan and no wonder it took so long to subdue the Iraqis....we have brown-nosing horny-toads running the show.

By: yogiman on 11/13/12 at 3:16


I'm simply trying to keep you idiots alert to what your favorite usurper in office is doing to our nation.

Yea, I call it OUR nation because you haven't claimed to be a fellow communist with Barry yet. I've know many idiots in my life and I must admit, this is one of the biggest groups I've run into in many years.

Unless you're in Barry's program with your hands out for his freebies, you will wake up one of these days and wonder what in the hell happened. Why didn't I see that?

I'm still wonder wondering: You all keep throwing your arguments around the corner but you haven't given a single reason for your assumptions.

I'll repeat: Prove to me I'm wrong and I'll shut up. Simple, isn't it?

Just like it would be simple for Barry Soetoro to prove he's in that office legally... if he could.

yogi bleats another lie..................

Israel is now threatening another Gaza operation, like Operation Cast Lead....1,400 Palestinians died in that shameful 2008 slaughter...and Israel is firing missiles into Syria too. Somebody should inform Netanyahu that Romney LOST the election...he's acting as if the Bishop had won the contest.

Check it out here...I left some comments but Bloomberg is zapping them:


By: yogiman on 11/13/12 at 3:47

You know, Loner,

It seems you know every time Israel takes an action against the Palestinians but you never seem to notice it when the Palestinians make an attack on Israel. I'm curious, isn't Palestine making constant threats on Israel because they want that piece of land?

I don't believe I can remember ever reading where Israel made an initiating attack on one of their neighbors. It seems to me to have always been in defense.
