Daddy, if you really, really want to use the cent symbol, ¢, hold down the alt key and key in 0162, then release the alt key.

Clarice, everyone here dotes on your culinary advice, so perhaps, for the benefit of the trolls, you should specify that your mention a short while ago of "piss and vinegar" was NOT a recipe for salad dressing. I can especially imagine DuDa scurrying around his kitchen making a salad right now.

The only thing you need to be concerned with,mark,is getting your criminal candidate to stop hiding his illegal financhial dealings behind faux corporations and come clean with the American people.

So it seems that soliciting boos from the NAACP audience was the intended political strategy of the Romney camp.Apparently racist,redneck-Republicans get "energized' if they see their candidate being dissed by negroes.

You got to love the great political minds servicing Romney's campaign.Instead of collecting a percentage point or two from a minority coalition that could determine the winner in a neck and neck contest,their appealing to KKK GOP types.

Newsflash;racist redneck gun loving Jesus praying uneducated types are already in the bag for Swiss Mitt.

I think one way to describe the liberal mindset now is a belief that political power can alter reality.

It's an offshoot application of the Will to Power, and has been a feature of progressive thought (so called) since it's earliest incarnations. Mankind can be perfected if one simply has the will to do what is necessary, including coercing the untermenschen who don't know what's good for them. Maximum power means maximum transformation with maximum efficiency.

If that idea strikes you as fascist, it's because it is one of the common denominators (along with nihilism and the Leader Principle) of all modern totalitarian social philosophies.

I recommend the book (particularly to rse) "Ominous Parallels", by Leonard Peikoff if you want to lay awake at night contemplating how we have been living in Weimar America since the late 1950s, and how the underlying philosophies of fascism are the bedrock of what universities are pushing as "intellectualism".

The object now is to get and keep full range of movement without letting scar tissue interfere, which it will do if you don't work at it.

Good luck with your recovery DoT. My mother is contemplating knee surgery (she's 79 this month), but is resisting it. I keep telling her she needs to get those knees in good working order to keep kicking ass. So I give the same advice to you.

OT, I am currently in the final approach to returning to Reserve status, which I have never really been on since I enlisted in 2006 (I was mobilized to Active Duty almost immediately). Peace is breaking out all over dontcha know, similar to acne. As part of that transformation, I put in for, and got, my company command. So this week, between visits to socialized military medicine facilities (I'm living the Obamacare dream!)and various finance offices, I am doing my change of command inventory. Yesterday I counted Allen wrenches, and today I walked up and down rows of Humvees and trailers figuring out which ones are mine. Change of command is next month. Pray for me daily to the Deity of your choosing.

Sweet hilarious irony.

BTW, I'm betting that most of the uneducated racist blahblahblah types know the difference between "their" and "they're", and the use of a colon versus a semi-colon.

No, that's not the same colon you're used to your boyfriends using dudu.

You know this is just a demonstration of the nihilism inherent in progressivism. Destruction as catharsis. You really should get to know your political ethos better and then abandon it, for your own good.

Also, traditionally there are spaces after periods.

Oh, and one exclamation point is sufficient to show interjection.

narciso

Kamikazi scotsmen, always end up in that state, it's in their conditioning,

dublindave

"Oh, and one exclamation point is sufficient to show interjection."

If one were writing formal prose then one would be expected to indicate a declarative statement using one exclamation point as opposed to several exclamtion points.. However,when one is engaged in casual on-line chatter,one is well within the rules of grammar using as many exclamation points as one sees fit.


God Soylent red,you're fucking gay!!!!!

More "exclamtion" points, more betterer.


God Soylent red,you're fucking gay!!!!!

Using the word "gay" as a pejorative. Homophobia. Another inherently progressive attitude. It's sad you're submitting to the progressive stereotype dave.

Maybe you should consider religion. Perhaps joining the Latter Day Saints. I'm positive they can help you with your intolerance and suicidal tendencies. Don't despair dave. Stay with us brother.

My all-time fave OWS hyperventilation was from a gushing airhead named Diane Sawyer on ABC Evening News who gleefully let her panting audience know that OWS was up and running "in over a thousand countries..."

I overheard it because my wife is a fan. When I told her the UN only has 180 members, she simply came back with "Never mind."

Diane is a bucket of [blonde] hair.

Sad about the Fox girl. ABC would never try to investigate a case like that. Consequences might blow up in OWS's face [covered by a black hood.]

I tell ya. An ordinary man would be back in the hospital.

The first week of knee replacement rehab really sucked, but once I was able to get the pedals to go all the way around on the bike, recovery was very fast. I only had about 75% range of motion in my knee before surgery and by the end of the first month after surgery, I had regained very close to 100% without a twinge of pain. So hang in there DOT, once you get past these early days, it will be a piece of cake. The hardest part for me was trusting the new knee. My old one had a tendency to give out on me at very inconvenient times and I would either fall or have to hobble to a seat and just wait for it to allow me to put weight on it again. So even though I could walk down a set of steps in a normal gait after replacement, I would still do it one step at a time and hold on for dear life, just in case. Of course, not once in the last 7 years has it given out on me, but that just in case is always in the back of my mind.

((Is it a guy thing, maybe?))

no, I love Wodehouse. He's one of the few writers that has brought me to tears,(of laughter).

I'm sorry you're angry.It's not my fault you don't fully understand the difference between formal and informal writing and the use of multiple exclamation points?

Would you like several examples of authors using multiple exclamation points to denote sarcasm or satire?


Didn't think so.


"God Soylent red,you're fucking gay!!!!!"

"Using the word "gay" as a pejorative. Homophobia. Another inherently progressive attitude."

I never used the word "gay" as a homophobic slur.It has several meanings,you've obviously chosen the one that denotes sexual orientation,which says alot more about you than it does about me.

Dublindave, I'm surprised by your criticism of Romney's speech to the NAACP. Romney asserts his policy positions candidly without regard to the race of the audience. I would think you would applaud this and criticize the patronizing prog politicians who pander and pander.

dublindave

"Dublindave, I'm surprised by your criticism of Romney's speech to the NAACP. Romney asserts his policy positions candidly without regard to the race of the audience."

Sure,but it's kind of hard to be candid and derogatory at the same time.

And it wasn't his policy position they were booing,it was the lack of respect he showed for the President's signature legislation,something that the NAACP has fought tooth and nail for.

Romney intentionally solicited a negative reaction and that's fine,but here's my question;how much fucking red meat to racist,redneck,republicans need before they realize that it's better to win an election than to lose one and feel "energized".You wanna feel "energized", go buy a fucking power drink and shove it up your ass while Romney peels off as many Democratic votes as humanly possible,even if it means pretending to be Jane Fonda's secret love child.

Romney's purpose is to win the White house,not routinely "energize" his base because.......'somedays they're just not feeling it'.

They're a political base,not Broadway leading ladies.

By that token I think he missed an opportunity to peel off a few Democratic votes yesterday and appear more 'Presidential'.

It has just been reported that this was the result of contamination by a lab worker. When you consider the FBI lab had falsified DNA data for 10 years to get convictions and this contamination event being the tip of the iceberg DNA as "evidence" is very suspect. No doubt the science is good it is the human factor that is questionabale. Iamgine a case where you are innocent but the government can "claim" they found something at the crime scene that implicates you. You cannot refute it or disprove it and it is accepted 100% by juries. If you are dishonest then you can convict anyone at any time of anything. But it's not as though our law enforcement and legal profession are dishonest...

Annoying Old Guy

Note the "Will to Power" in dublindave's comment. Lying and faking, discrediting your own ideology, that's all a minor issue compared to seizing power. While winning elections is important, we can see in in the aftermath of the 2006 and 2008 elections how that end up destroying the victors when the blowback from bogus promises catches up. DD doesn't seem to be able to view politics as in anyway based on ideas, only on raw power. That's the Modern American Left mindset.
