Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 12:32am

What is your reaction to the release of the Department of Justice memo, referred to as the "white paper" and obtained by NBC News, that reveals the U.S. government policy of ordering the killing of American citizens believed to be Al Qaeda leaders?

I don't know, Nemo. It wouldn't surprise me to hear a news report of Paul from Gordonsville holed up in some bunker with a bunch of guns and ammo.

Proof positive that the mentally ill should NOT have guns, blanket.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/6/13 at 11:01

Yep. That's true.

By: bfra on 2/6/13 at 11:02

Very true!

I was behind a truck the other day with two "Pro-Gun" stickers, going about 70 mph on a road that was 45. Law abiding my ass...

Airport security is only an example. We got cameras on street corners and in buildings. We got nosey neighbors and neighborhood watch groups. We got employers looking into e-mails. Privacy is a bit of a misstatement.

Freedom is something Rasputin has because he has nothing to lose.

Many of the pro-gun people are a bunch of insecure nuts that need a gun to feel important. They may give lip service to all the "higher" reasons of why they own a gun but when it gets down to it, it's their need to feel powerful. And that's the wrong person to own a gun.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 11:06

You are still a loser, old girl.

By: gdiafante on 2/6/13 at 11:08

Well, technically nemo, employers have the right to monitor emails because they own it. The employees are only using it.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 11:09

That is true Blanket.

slacker - Bush had 8 yrs. to off Osama. If he & his family hadn't been business partners & bosum buddies with Osama's family, Osama IMO would have been gone a long time ago.

Well, Bill Clinton knew or should have known that Osama needed offing. So why didn't he off him? ANSWER: Too busy "on" Monica to tend to trivial security matters.

If Bill had done his job, maybe Bush would have not even been elected the first time. After all if a Democrat could have, or would have done the job, then they would have been seen in a better light and had another DEM put into office.

Hey how come no one is mentioning the fact that the bunker guy (AL or GA - what's the difference?) is an ex-VIEWNAM VET. Why not folks? I suppose George Bush is to blame for that one also. Do you people know how stupid it sounds to always blame Bush?

Note: Today I purchased Credit Fraud Protection at 9:00 a.m. (Zander) 25 minutes later I got a call from my bank about some dip using my card for two purchases at 8:05 a.m. and 8:10 a.m. Talk about timing. I called and I'm protected (and I'd say blessed too).

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/6/13 at 11:14

FYI - Bush didn't rightfully win the election.

Blanket - Nuts will never admit that! Buds entire comment is like bats in the belfrey rattling.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 11:17

I know that gdia. Still it is big brother is looking over you. I am just trying to say that privacy and freedom is not what is advertised. Nothing like the right-wing fringe of this country says it is fighting for. Those poor saps have no idea what they are fighting for. They are just little feathers caught up in the whirl wind.

Georgie was a usurper?

By: bfra on 2/6/13 at 11:19

slacker - Would you say Printer's Alley clubs used to have much better shows than the superbowl half time?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/6/13 at 11:19

Georgie had a friend related to Jerry Mandering who lived down in FL.

As I remember old girl, Clinton went after bin Laden, but the Republicans held him back.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/6/13 at 11:22

Nemo, you're going to confuse her with facts again!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/6/13 at 11:23

bud, perhaps you would like a little knowledge on the subject:

http://www.factcheck.org/2008/01/clinton-passed-on-killing-bin-laden/

Q: Did Bill Clinton pass up a chance to kill Osama bin Laden?

A: Probably not, and it would not have mattered anyway as there was no evidence at the time that bin Laden had committed any crimes against American citizens.

By: bfra on 2/6/13 at 11:25

bud & yogi get choked on FACTS and start spitting out inane remarks.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 11:26

Here is a site for you to read bud, old girl.

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2012/05/03/brian-williams-praises-bill-clinton-trying-kill-bin-laden-ignores-all

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/6/13 at 11:27

And if you think he should have gone ahead and taken out bin Laden, then you should agree with the "white paper."

Now I know that might be a deep thought for you and you'd rather just talk about the whole Monica thing since it's a subject you can wrap your head around.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 11:31

Damn I got caught that fast.

Jusr offer them more freebies, slacker. Damn, ain't you familiar with politics?

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 11:34

What is a jusr?

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 11:36

Now you is one to be an expert dumba$$

bfra, the only good acts I recall in Printers alley were Boots Randolph & Ronnie Prophet. The Otto Bash Combo was entertaining.
Ronnie was good, but ''never had a dinner.''
The Superbowl halftime is designed for the masses, who want to see ''tits & asses''

By: bfra on 2/6/13 at 11:43

slacker - tits & asses are what drew people to Printer's Alley & the shows I remember made the half time show look like a kindergarden folk dance session. Dont get me wrong, Boots was the best & had some of the best shows. The other 2, not too familiar with. But, in the day, the Alley was mainly known for the hoochie shows.

Heaven Lee

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 11:47

My favorite was Heaven Lee.

By: yogiman on 2/6/13 at 11:51

How about identifying yourself, bfra; so if I ever run into you in a situation where you could use a little help from being attacked I could ignore you without thought.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 11:52

Well, if you want to call my basement a bunker, B2, yep, by golly I got one.

By: slacker on 2/6/13 at 11:56

For you bfra..

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 11:58

I would take my chances with the attacker bfra. You would hurt yourself laughing as yogi soiled his pants trying to run away.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/6/13 at 12:00

Then I'll probably be seeing you on the news some day soon.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 12:01

The bunker yogi call his, is full of crap.

By: bfra on 2/6/13 at 12:04

Nemo & slacker - Enjoyed both lincs! slacker - nobody in the superbowl half time show could have held a light to Heaven Lee. Nemo - I use to see her riding her bicycle on Nolensville Rd. & talked with her several times in a fabric shop on Nolensville Rd.. She made some of her own clothes & was a very down to earth person..

By: bfra on 2/6/13 at 12:06

Nemo -- And I'll bet is is literally "crap"!

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 12:07

Gordonsville very own Village Idiot as Martians in held hostage in his basement bunker aka outhouse.

By: bfra on 2/6/13 at 12:08

s/h/b (it is)

By: yogiman on 2/6/13 at 12:08

Well, B2,

You say Bush didn't rightfully win the election. Can you please tell me how Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama won that election rightfully?

And don't give me that crap he was elected. You have to meet Constitutional qualification which he doesn't do.

I'll continue my argument: If he could, he would. Can you explain; if he can't he doesn't need to?

At least Bush identified himself and your man has constantly refused to all they way.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 12:10

She looked me in the eye once and I knew it was true love. That was before I met my true love. ;-0

By: Captain Nemo on 2/6/13 at 12:11

bfra-

If he is in it, it is.

By: bfra on 2/6/13 at 12:13

Just the fact that for over 4+, that is 4+ years, this yogi nut has posted the SAME crap. None has happened or proved to be TRUE, but for over 4+ years he has continued with the same BS. Anybody reading this, that doesn't think that proves what an absolute IDIOT he is, is just as STUPID as he is.
