So bud drive around in circles and talks to people. Government waste.

Oh well, Obama took over Census in 2009 so talk to him about your problem with gov'ment waste.

Remember they can see me and hear all I do, so if I'm not following their rules, they will catch me. BUT all my performance evaluations so far for 4 years have been 4 & 5 out of 1 to 5. So I musta did som'in right! And I don't punch in till I'm in my car and once again to the dumbos who are reading this (and you know who you are), I have no access to CP in my car.

Capt you "heard a different story" about everything, so what you hear is usually hog wash. and you don't have any friends, so stop lying about it. You are always a "bad day".

That is true bud. I heard a rumor that you were cow.

Nemo, she is fluent in bull.......

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/13/13 at 10:46

Nemo, are you sure it was cow? I was told bovine.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/13/13 at 10:49

Trolls do change form. LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 6/13/13 at 10:52

I suspect the next traffic tie-up we hear about on the interstate will be do to a ranting troll. Look out world. LOL

Get out the cow lift!

David Briley is an annoying twit. It is no wonder nobody supported him for mayor.

The sad thing is that the state of TN elected this little thief as its leader. Of course, he is running scared.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/13/13 at 12:43

It is a shame that there some little people that will post anything to get attention.

By: Jughead on 6/13/13 at 1:34

And the US elected a racist president whose illegal activities DWARF any other administration.

Why are you libtards allowing Hussein a pass?

That Ben Franklin, what a lazy bum. He sleeps in till noon and spends all hours of the night carousing in the French salons with lose women and odious free thinkers. Frankly I don't see what the French see in him and why it's because of HIM that we're getting support for the revolution. - such is what John Adams might have said.

If I remember, I believe the Occupy people camped on cement during December when it was 18 degrees....they stole electricy. Accusations they had rampant rapes, drug use, murders, sexual pervion, urination was exaggerated by who else? Republicans.....of the Christian variety.
Some perceive a societal mission in life. Like at U-Michigan and Kent State during the Vietnam war. Or N. California in the 60's.
I'm sure it was fun getting shot at by the National Guard.
Ben: the "Tent City" was no cake walk, not in a up & down climate laden city like Nashville.
Back in San Jose' CalTrans shuttered the "Tent City.....200+ people were displaced. Here in San Diego, the homeless are militant and have been homeless for decades. There's no place for them. Are on street corners with signs.
Most are mentally ill and physically sickly.
They recycle cans and bottles out of the dumpsters and trash for 0.10c a pound.
What a life.

The bongo drum? How nostalgic, Ben....today, we hippies use the African djembe drum for our percussion section....this makes us look even more tolerant and more "one-worldly".

Here's the djembe drum in action:

Yes, I know that I am supposed to be on my summer retreat....but the US MULE got a little stubborn on me....took a week to get my slave cylinders...then, getting the vehicle to stop without pulling right or left required several attempts before we got it right...the adjusters on the DJ5-L are very sensitive...a real PIA.

But, I'm ready to roll now....except that the weather went back to crap...yesterday was gorgeous...it's been raining hard all day today....a Nor' Easter blew in.

Ben Franklin was a god in France because of the lightning rod, Brrrrrk. The politics was just him using his god powers (and some really creative self-promotion) to advance the American political cause.

D'arge... there but for the grace of God go I. Many of us are just one mental break-down away from the streets ourselves and I hope if it ever comes to pass that the streets will be hospitable.

I had far less contempt for the bums than for the goofy Vandy Marxists wannabees who were down there bitching about how unfair it was for daddy to have all that money while they scraped by on their allowance that barely covered their beer and Starbucks.

A great way to get laid, though, I guess. Chicks dig guys who care about stuff.

Ben, If you didn't try to act like you think you are so much cutier & quit writing in riddles that don't even make sense, you might get a point across. What Vandy Marxist? Where did they protest. How do you know they only drink beer & Starbucks? How do you know it is a great way to get laid? You there, trying? Plus aren't you too old for that & what did your wife think?

My point is Ben, that Franklin, Jefferson, Madison, and the rest of their ilk, were just as much radicals in their time as you probably think those "free thinking revolutionaries" are today.

I do also remember the Vandy protests...tuition hike or not allow gay Professors or restricting Muslim religion being taught....something.
But, at 19, that's what you do.
Same with the Occupiers. Don't expect 19 year olds to act like 45-55 year olds.
Won't happen.

By: bfra on 6/13/13 at 3:03

brrrrk - Ben tries to sould like a hip cat, but comes across as a creepy old wannabe.

By: bfra on 6/13/13 at 3:05

change that sould to "sound"! Sorry

By: Loner on 6/13/13 at 3:15

Still here.....for now....waiting for the rains to blow out of here.

Actually, Ben, "Chicks dig scrawny pale guys"...I own a black T-shirt bearing that simple statement...old typewriter typestyle, small-font, white lettering....very discreet....very effective too.

Ben, did you ever get that D tin whistle? Lots of bang for the buck with a tin whistle....very portable, durable, innocent-looking but potent...kind of like the Lone One himself?

One can play four major pentatonic scales and their relative minors on a whistle without having to use the difficult half-hole technique...since the C whistle is a full tone lower than the D whistle, and since it too can produce 4 major and 4 minor pentatonic scales, using these two whistles, some 16 scales are possible....though some of them actually duplicate each other...other scales are unique to that particular whistle.

When a tune comes on the radio, there's an excellent chance that I can jam with that tune using either the D or the C whistle....most popular music is written in a surprisingly limited number of keys.

I might teach a workshop on the tin whistle at camp this year...not that I am a virtuoso on the thing, but I know more than a novice knows...I love the instrument, it's simple yet effective.

I prefer the cheap Clark Woodstock tin whistle, with a tapered bore, to the more expensive brass whistle, with the cylindrical bore....why pay more for an instrument that is more problematic? The Woodstock whistles are painted in bright colors, so they look like toys...but do not be fooled, they are very playable and have a great timbre...in my opinion.

Actually, Ben strikes me as the kind of guy who would cut you off in traffic, jeopardizing your life and everybody elses around him, just to gain one second towards his final destination.....

At Brushwood, we try to keep the "gawkers" out...if the women feel "creeped out" by some guy, we escort the fellow off the premises...it doesn't take long to figure out who is there to participate and who is there to gawk, drool, smoke cigars, drink cheap beer and play pocket pool around the campfire...we have our standards.

Here is a nice video put together by Kenny Klein...a pagan musician and a regular at Brushwood:

Jugs...the guy had a legitimate explanation: "I was young and ambitious, and I love women," Orlando Shaw told WTVF. "You can't knock no man for loving women."

Sounds like the title of an R&B tune....

You can't knock no man for loving women.
Everybody knows dat's true.
Lord, I loves me my women,
My kids number twenty two.

Well, a daddy can't get no job,
When he got a record wid da police.
Ain't nobody gonna hire da slob.
So the guvmint, he done gotta fleece.

You can't knock no man for loving women.

"free thinking revolutionaries" was an attempt at an ironic criticism of the hive mind that is liberal academia. People who are more 'literal' don't get such humor evidently.

By: yogiman on 6/13/13 at 4:13

bfra,

You seem quick to accuse but unable to prove to back your accusations. Wouldn't a little integrity help you somewhat? Try, you might like it.

By: bfra on 6/13/13 at 4:25

Ben - Is that your problem? You should let people know up front.

By: bfra on 6/13/13 at 4:26

yogi - Rewrite you comment! Then maybe it will make sense. Doubtful, but you can try.

No Ben, I got it alright...... I just see no point in recognizing, or more accurately, rewarding, a crappy attempt at humor. But then that's pretty much par for the course in terms of humor coming from the right. Show me the funny right wing comedians....

By: bfra on 6/13/13 at 4:33

brrrrk = Ben's attempt at humor is by far the crappiest on this board. If fact, so crappy, there is no humor!

By: dargent7 on 6/13/13 at 6:26

I think it's known as Aspergers. Commoly called Autism.
bfra has just had enough of the daily b.s....as well as most of us have.
And Bud....didn't you say once you knew where I woeked and my neighbors?
I know you did, so why call out bfra?

By: yogiman on 6/13/13 at 6:42

It makes sense for anyone with reasonable intelligence. Sorry you don't understand it, bfra... but I understand.

bud just started this job & already has a 4 yr. evaluation? Bud tell another one, that doesn't muster!

hey there do-wah-diddy. I said evaluations for the 4 years I previously worked. I worked 2000 (Reno NV); 2010 (Nashville TN) and 2005 to 2008 (out of Charlotte Regional office) and my most recent assignment is May 5 of this year. So all evals I spoke of were from past assignments. You are so smart, you should have picked up on that.

And did you all hear: John Daly referred to sarah palin's son trig as a "retard" ! Gee I guess a lib-tard can call people retarded but conservatives can't. Well, she put him down royally.

He's a bully to pick on a developmentally disabled child. What did the kid do to him?
Nothing, nada. And I can assure you that libtards have less than perfect offspring also.

By: budlight on 6/13/13 at 7:34

by the way, if a person gets bad evals, they don't get hired back. Go figure!

budlight,'

Your job is none of their business. Why does none of then mention their job, or even their line of work? Hell, with the mount of time they all have on this site, do any of them have a job? Unless they're self employed they are sure using a lot of their employers time.

Are they getting paid to 'troll' down the NCP making idiotic remarks to, and about, those who don't agree with them? It sure looks like it.

I'm a good example. I tried to become a "friend" on this site. I learned quickly I didn't "fit in" their picture. But with their exposure of their ignorance, they "opened the door" for me to have fun.

By: budlight on 6/13/13 at 9:11

Yeah they do kind of get riled up, don't they? And I just laugh my tush off when they do. They take themselves so seriously.

I do have a part time job; sure beats welfare rolls! It's hard work and tiresome with the condition of Parkinson's but it's a way to keep moving in a positive direction.

Keep up the good work. Some day they will say, OMG Yogi was right. Obama is a fraud. And I say that as part of my freedom of speech, but I'm just not squatting on the gov-ment's property (ie, occupiers) when I am saying it. I'm sitting on a chair that I paid for in a house that I'm paying for.

If Obama called me in for a meeting, I'd tell him the same think. In the 1970's I was in the World Bank elevator with then President of the IBRD; everyone was nervous cause the big man was in the elevator with us. I said "good evening Mr. McNamara" and he said it back. He said how are you? I saw the opportunity so I put in my shot - I said "Well, since we are in an energy crisis, I'd be doing a lot better if you were going down to get in a volkswagon instead of a limo" and he just laughed.

Everyone in the elevator almost choked when their butts squeezed all the way up to their throats. I thought it was funny -- and so did he.

Horse manure! Shooo! you stink capt. Wash up and please don't comment on my posts anymore. Comments not welcome. Find someone else to criticize. You are old and boring and not welcome in my world anymore. You never say anything nice. You are a crazy old coot! Bitter with the world. So drop out of sight. No one will miss you, I'm sure.

Now is that clear enough? If not, read it again or get an interpretor!
