That's sheepboy humor, Brrrrk...I spent some time in Idaho....where the women are strong....and the ewes are nervous. Ever enjoyed Rocky Mountain Oysters?

We need to thank Gov. Bredesen for the know-how to invest and safe-guard our pension. Haslam would be spinning in the wind over this issue. If a bill does not help his family, he would be clueless.

Between helping Haslam's family & Dean's family, we stay in the hole!

LONER...........I did under estimate your income. Your wife works.

While on the sibject of boats with holes, you might consider that a boat with too many aboard is a candidate for sinking.

I give you the American entitlement programs versus those of us who foot the bill.

By the way I am a big fan of the postal service but they too are on the government dole.

I tried a Tom Collins (made with Gin) in college. My libations of choice are 18 year old scotch, Oregon and Washington Pinot Noirs and Grey Goose or Ciroc (made from grapes)

Gin of any price is a revolting adult beverage. Leave off the beer as well, I have never developed a taste for this middle class drink.

Raspy - I heard you are a Mad Dog fan! Isn't that more in your price range?

There has been two vastly loud explosions at the end site of the Boston Marathon. Many people have been injured, some even lost limbs.

By: yogiman on 4/15/13 at 2:12

Hang in there, brrrrk.

I'm not leaving you out of the argument. Like the others, I'm still simply asking for your evidence Barry is in that office legally. And you know, it's amazing, none of you have offered one source of evidence I'm wrong. That idea seems to be only in your feeble minds. I'm still waiting for your evidence. Don't you have any?

Hey---I thought bombs were regulated. How in the world could someone use a bomb as a weapon when the govtards say it is illegal?

By: Jughead on 4/15/13 at 3:25

We need to regulate bombs. Because, it is bombs who kill people by exploding in public places, not Muslim men. Regulate bombs. Get Joe Biden and B. Hussein on it. They are real leaders.

By: Jughead on 4/15/13 at 3:25


By: yogiman on 4/15/13 at 3:51

I agree, Jugnead,

Those bombs exploded on their own, regardless of the person/s that placed them and set them off. I'm sure Barry and Joe will know who's innocent.

Don't blow yourself up yogi, like that other idiot that bothers innocent people by sticking ill informed political trash in their faces.

By: yogiman on 4/15/13 at 4:30

Again, bfra, what is the political trash you claim is being stuck in others faces? It seems you can complain but you can't explain.

By: bfra on 4/15/13 at 4:42

yogi - You ignorant old fool liar! Ask the people around Gordonsville what political trash you are always sticking in their face. Why do you think they go the other way when they see you comming? By the way "Ole Fool" is what the majority call you around there, also.

yogi - You ignorant old fool liar!

bfra, what you needs is bafrath soap for to wash out your disgusting mouf. Still an arrogant wanna-be elitist, only without the chops to be...elitist.

Sad, that.

Guess I'ma'gonna have to come around more often to lend hand against these LeftLibProgg trolls who've become brave in my absence!

By: yogiman on 4/15/13 at 6:07

Well, bfra, I guess that should make me wonder. First, I don't talk to many people in Gordonsville. That's just my mailing address, I don't live there. So where did you get that crap?

Second, why do the people of Smith County ask me when I'm going to put another article in the paper. It's funny, of the 40 plus years I've lived here I can only recall one letter to the editor when someone made a negative comment about it.

Who are the others that didn't agree with me but only told you?

By: serr8d on 4/15/13 at 6:11

Loner! old pal, do you still hate the Jews as much as you used to, or have your mellowed a bit in your continuing dotage? You're not still getting regularly tossed off the Jerusalem Post, are you?

No 'Reichstag fires' lately, I hope!

By: serr8d on 4/15/13 at 6:12

Heh. See ya later~!

By: bfra on 4/15/13 at 6:22

serr8d - When did you get holy? LMAO

By: bfra on 4/15/13 at 6:23

serr - Be sure to tell me what is wrong with telling the truth?

By: yogiman on 4/15/13 at 7:29

Nothing is wrong with telling the truth, bfra. You should try it. You'll be amazed.

By: yogiman on 4/15/13 at 7:32


As an old NuYawker I thought you might enjoy this show my nephew sent me. Double click the airplane and sit back and relax.


By: Loner on 4/15/13 at 9:21

Serr8d...my old friend...good to see you posting here again....I look forward to sparring with my old adversary....I never hated the Jews, as you well know, Serr,.... if I did, I'd support concentrating the world's Jews into a tiny Jewish theocracy in Palestine...in the nuclear age..Concentration enables annihilation...the Jews are now self-concentrating...a Nazi's dream scenario.

Please come back as a regular, Serr8d, the right-wing trolls here have no creativity....actually, I miss your unrestrained abrasiveness and unabashed straightforwardness....the righties here are bush league trolls...you, however, are a cut above.....but, don't let that go to your head, son.

By: Loner on 4/15/13 at 9:26

Rasp, you are fumbling in the dark....you have no idea who I am, do you?
