Up for Debate: Last straw for NFL's replacements?

Wednesday, September 26, 2012 at 1:56am

Do you think the replacement refs blown call at the end of the Seattle-Green Bay game Monday forces the NFL to settle the officials lookout? If so, how soon do you think the regular refs will take the field? Or do you think the NFL will circle the wagons and hold firm on its position? How frustrated, if at all, are you by the situation?

Rest assured, I'm not entertaining by choice. But this is an "open to the public" site and I'm going to "have my say". And frankly, I don't care if any of these Obama fans read my post or not. I'm simply trying to "tell it like it is".

They call me wrong, but none of them have proved it. Prove I am and I'll apologize and correct myself. Other than that, take it of leave it.

It's like you "said", gdiafante, I'm American first. I will follow that oath I took on my enlistment until my death. I hope all veterans meant what they swore that oath to when they went in service.

Bud wants to take up a collection for the Rasp & the Troll....they are "victims".....like the verbally abused school bus monitor in Rochester, NY who became a national celebrity for a few days. People sent her money, in sympathy for her plight.

Bud must be smoking the good bud this morning....I'm jealous.....got anymore of that good herb, Bud?

By: budlight on 9/26/12 at 7:50

First of all I said I'd send a fund to Yogi and it was tongue in cheek making fun of ya'll slammer on this site.

And secondly, I don't smoke anything. You're not jealous cause you do smoke it or you wouldn't bring it up.

You and your ilk always make fun of others who are not of your ilk. Are you so insecure and jealous that others can't play in your sandbox and be respected? Looks that way from here.

By: Loner on 9/26/12 at 7:51

Yes, Bud...I am old...and I have been the fool many times over the years...I never claimed to be a guru, shaman or sage....except for those rare times when I rub my crystal balls, gaze into the future and then report on what I've seen to my friends on this site.....as for gin, I do not care for the taste of fresh pine cones...I leave that for the squirrels who really dig it.

By: yogiman on 9/26/12 at 7:51

I hate to tell you this, Loner, but it takes a fool to recognize one because you have to know what you're looking at. But in a way, I envy you. I just wish I was as smart as you think you are. Or is that a stupid idea on my part?

By: Rasputin72 on 9/26/12 at 7:53

Budlight.........LONER was given good genes. He failed to make good use of them for reasons that we will never know. As he aged and saw the accomplishments of others he became a little bit angry at himself for being so mentally lazy.

He has finally resigned himself to just what he is, A man who has failed his talents. He now uses his genetic abilities to sit on his behind which is what he truly loves to do and poles intellectual fun at everything that he feels should have been right his.

Now he has a thing about the Jewish state and anyone else for that matter who is in power or wealthy.

As far as LONER is concerned everything that he is not for is a phony and a charlatan and someone who cheated him of his true destiny. "A wealthy and lazy philosophy professor."

In other words he just wants to pontificate his knowledge all over the world.

He certainly pontificates to a Nashville board from outside Rochester, New York, I may be wrong but to my knowledge he has never indicated he has any ties to Nashville.

As a caveat to this post, he is without a doubt the spirtual leader for this motley group of failures and class envy posters.

Hey, budlight,

I don't want money for my role in this argument about Barry, the unofficial president. Just put that money into a veteran's charity or your Church.

By: bfra on 9/26/12 at 7:59

Raspy should spend more time searching facts about what he tries to convince everyone he knows & proves he doesn't! Like a walking horse can't "walk" without being sored. Then dumb enough to say he paid $35.00 lb. for halibut. Smart people like to see this fool coming.

By: Captain Nemo on 9/26/12 at 7:59

I suppose p3 did not watch the GOP convention, there were plenty of teleprompter on stag.

By: Loner on 9/26/12 at 8:00

So, it's ilk versus ilk? Whatever.

The troll is being ignored, because he is obsessed with the legitimacy of the United States of America....he is die-hard birther.... he is inarticulate and offensive....he does not cite his sources....he is an annoying and boring pain in the collective ass.....his hatred for our president is primarily race-based and Islamophobic....with a full measure of McCarthyism thrown in.....these are the primary reason that we shun this troll...he comes here just to bug us...so we are ignoring him.....hoping the buggy goof flies off to another site.

By: Rasputin72 on 9/26/12 at 8:02

Bfra........Just as an academic assist, would you tell me what you pay for Halibut and where you buy it?

Missing proper noun....s/h/b: The troll is being ignored, because he is obsessed with the legitimacy of the PRESIDENT of the United States of America.....mea culpa.

Rasputin sucks?

By: yogiman on 9/26/12 at 8:07

I imagine Loner is a beer guzzler, budlight. He continues to act like he's high all the time and beer is the cheapest thing to guzzle for a drunk.

Obama may actually be from Kenya, Indonesia, or even worse, where Thurston Howell III and Lovey, aka, Mittens and Ann, are from, Detroit.
The guy, Obama, articultes a position as a cross between Gandhi, Jesus Christ, Mother Teresa, Steven Hawkin, Thomas Edison, and John Lennon.
Let him be.
GW Bush, Cheney, & Co. totally fabricated the Iraq invasion.
Nothing sinks to a lower level. Nothing is lower than scum than knowingly falsified "intel" from the CIA....on purpose... for the OIL. Anyone who doesn't know this is a moron.
Some say 9/11 was "an inside job". Some say JFK was assassinated by the Corelone family. Some say the USA never actually went to the Moon. It was staged in Hollywood.
I don't know about that shit. What I do know is GW Bush lied to America and we lost 6,500 young men and women. Dead, DOA, because they lied.
The United State's karma is ruined for 100 years, minimum, because of those ass-holes.

See you on down the road people.

I, too, believe that O'Drama is not legitimate in his birth records. OK, Yogi, I won't send you any money cause I probably couldn't anyway. I was just surmising.

And Rasp, that was a good explanation. Actually I am somewhat disappointed in how I have managed my own time here on earth, so I understand how he feels. I did not work hard enough at all so I have not risen to my own level of where I think I should be at this stage. But it's never too late to raise one's sights and hopes. There's always a hot tea lawsuit. LOL LOL Just kidding.

I am not an islamophobic, however, I do not wish to be ruled in this country by the dictates of islam. They are coming HERE to get away from THERE (whereever that is to them) and yet they want to make HERE into a THERE! Same for the Hispanics and some other groups. They seem to want to ESCAPE from somewhere or something to come to a better someplace and then they turn this someplace into that somewhere or something that they ran from.

Why don't they just stay THERE and turn it into a HERE? Guess it's too much work for them, so they come HERE and try to ride the backs of our hardworking forefathers and the brave people of today.

Bet you that Yogi and Rasp plus a few other bright stars were the only ones who could follow or understand what I wrote!

Hey, Rasputin72,

Loner didn't fail to use his talents... because he didn't have any. It doesn't take a talent to drop mail off in you box you know. Oh, wait, it might take a bit of talent to remember how to shut your mailbox when it's raining.

By: bfra on 9/26/12 at 8:16

Raspy - I have all my seafood shipped in from Maine, always fresh, never frozen. Halibut right now is $14.75 lb. Out of curosity, I did check the internet & the prices I found locally did not go over $20.00 lob. Now make up another one.

Thank you, Rasp, for the kind words vis-a-vis my genetics. Hybrid vigor...no inbreeding in my "class". I am a motley mongrel....a lovable pooch of a guy.

You may be right, I could have worked harder, partied less.....made more money and paid more dues....I could have evaded military service and went on a Mormon Mission or whatever and then gone into the world of high-finance....and with a little make-up and a weave, I too could have been a contender for POTUS.....but my roots are humble...no silver spoon....no family business to go into....no inherited wealth.

I did manage to serve my country, as a soldier and as a Rural Letter Carrier...I fathered 2 daughters and have 4 grandkids....I have a woman who loves me...I have that and other priceless rewards for my labors on this mudball we call "Earth". ...we are here for a good time, Rasp....not a long time.


By: budlight on 9/26/12 at 8:24

I'll repeat my question: Why has Obama spent millions of dollars to refuse to show any of his papers? My answer? Because he knows he usurped that office.

I'll further re-point an issue; he was raised in Muslim and communist families. His admissions shows all of his "friends" and associates in his young life were Muslims and communist. When did he convert to become a Democratic in Christianity?

I recommend his fans on this site learn more about communism within the next 43 days.

This story missed the city paper: "NASHVILLE, Tenn. - An apparent argument over a balloon ended in gunfire Monday evening in Clarksville. Police said a two-year-old took a balloon from a home for sale on Barkwood Drive and a confrontation between neighbors ensued. As the argument escalated, a man and a woman retreated in a Chrysler 300 sedan. Shortly after, a Ford Thunderbird with five males inside arrived and tried to block the Chrysler's path. As the men exited the Thunderbird, one of them displayed a handgun and started shooting at the victims."

And it didn't stop there. So far there are 2 arrests. What are these people breeding? Or what are they drinking or smoking during breeding?

This is so stupid. And the story about the mom who called about a break in at her home and then being busted for cooking cocaine in her kitchen is even more pathetic. It's on the channel 2 news.

I'm getting off this site now. It's not productive. See ya'll later Yogi, Rasp, D7 Loner et al.

By: yogiman on 9/26/12 at 8:38

You're showing you ignorant arrogance again, bfra. With the market like it is, how can you compare your cost to Rasputin72's if it isn't on the same day and approximately the same time?

Such prices often change constantly.

By: Loner on 9/26/12 at 8:39


Have a good trip, Captain Nemo.

I have work to do this morning, so I can't hang out much longer...Ben, are you there?

Yes, Rasp...I used the "W" word....although I loved the character, I'm no Maynard G. Krebs....the US Postal Service does not tolerate slackers, not in the Rural ranks, that's for sure.


I loved that Maynard character...I think that he influenced my early development, Rasp.

By: bfra on 9/26/12 at 8:42


By: Loner on 9/26/12 at 8:43

More video of Maynard G Krebs and his, "WORK??!!", schtick::


Has shots of Maynard & Dobie in uniform!

By: bfra on 9/26/12 at 8:44

Nemo - Ditto on Loner's have a safe trip! Watch out for the bears, both kind.:-)

This is a great example of showing the greed at the top. They had rather ruin a good thing than pay the fair price for it.

Bud, the schmuck adds her 2 cents, & probably wouldn't know a halibut from a chicken leg.

Did you ever have a course in civics in your elementary school? I know they didn't insist you become a Constitutional scholar so you apparently don't know the requirements to become the President of the USA.

There's only 3 requirements you must have. You must be a natural born citizen. You must be 35 years old. And you must have lived in the USA 14 years before entering that office.

It is known Obama was at least 35 years old and had lived in the USA for 14 years. But we have not been given the knowledge of where he was born and I have pointed this issue several times.

Why did his literary advertisers show he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii for 16 years? Why did he change his "place of birth" when he decided to run for President?

Why has he, in public talks said he was born in Kenya? Why has he told the people of Kenya he was glad to be back home? Why did Michelle Obama say they had to take medical shots to go through Africa to Kenya, his "homeland"?

And as I've posted before; Obama is just one man in this farce. Congress, the Electoral College and the Senate allowed it to happen. I have wondered why they was so involved in it. I can only presume they are in the ball game with him to take control over us.

Just stand by, folks. You'll learn the hard way by November 6.

This video clip of Maynard being lectured about goals and responsibilities in life must have entered my boyhood brain and altered my circuitry, Rasp....I could see that Maynard was on the right track...I identified with Krebs.


By: yogiman on 9/26/12 at 9:09


You've repeated several times my "hatred" of "our" President (meaning your president) is because of my racism.

I'll remind you again: You obviously don't know me (and I have no desire to meet you), but race has nothing to do with my arguments on this issue. After all, the man is half white, isn't he? So how do you know which half I'm in favor of?

I'll continue my argument you and your fellow posters on this site are racist because the only reason you can give for voting him is his claimed race.

Like dargent7, you should study the Constitution. Read Article II, Section 1, Para. 5. and tell me Obama is in that office legally and he doesn't have to prove it.
