I can talk for a day about any 14er I have ever climbed
Elbert and the mountain next to it in Colorado, Whitney, Shasta, The Eiger, The Monc, Towers on Mont Blanc, Mount Kala Patar.

Jeepers that is only 9 summits - lol - and I have climbed 100s of mountains and thousands of routes.
Got to get my 14 numbers up man.
As well as my 6000 and 7000 meter peak numbers up.

wow, this thread is pathetic! you guys should be proud of the most pathetic f*#king losers that ever graced the intardnet! way to go.

Well since CockEye has barfed in this thread now has the stench of the pathetic.

What's the matter, your cod piece too big for your teeny package. If you loathe this thread so much why post to it? Now that is pathetic. You are an arrogantly opinionated pathetic little man.

What exactly didn't President Obama do for you to make you such a bitter boi? Were you unaware that he was a bit occupied saving America from the disastrous eight years of Bushboi's neo-con agenda?

CockEye's ST contributions; No trip reports, no climbing photos, no climbing related posts, no substance. His cause celebre' seems to be Obama Bashing. And yet he feels we are pathetic.

Rick, you must be an attorney. Thanks for reupping this. I did not know what the fuss was about, now I do. I do not usually read political threads. Just remember everyone Ryan also believes a child born of rape is a gift from god. That is a disqualifier right there.

"remember everyone Ryan also believes a child born of rape is a gift from god."...


Has everyone forgotten that it's not the "GIFT" that counts...

It's the THOUGHT behind it...

Do we really have to pollute this thread with off topic BS
It's about Ryan and how he can lie about anything.
And why was the Original thread deleted...

"Good to have this back....Ryan is a douchebag and a liar. If this thread gets deleted you will never see me here again."

I'm giving Cmac the benefit of the doubt till he says otherwise. It's damned unique and strange that the "Paul Ryan is a liar" thread got totally erased right before the election. However, all the speculation and blame laid on Chris's door is wrong. Who's to say that some young Republican staffer didn't hack in and make it disappear? This sites always had minimal moderating. This thread pretty much proves it, it's got all kinds of crazy topics which have nothing to do with climbing going on all the times mixed in with some great climbing stuff.

The where did the thread go link:

The actual link of that original thread after being wiped out:

Rosie Ruiz? She was relatively unsophisticated. Check out this article on a guy who is suspected of cheating in marathons, but how he does it, no one has figured out.

Kind of pathetic really.

Love this quote about how the cheater was discovered through internet running message boards:

Not long after McGrath began his research, he decided to go public, sort of. His medium was LetsRun, a Web site devoted to news about élite track and distance running. One of LetsRun’s salient features is its “World Famous Message Boards,” where most participants use pseudonyms, and the content quality runs the expected gamut (factual, analytical, sophomoric, inanely combative).

Bumping this thread to counter the mysterious disappearance of mountain climbing/political content on the eve of the election.

Speaking of credibility, the deep scrubbing of the original thread heard round the world brings SuperTopo's credibility into question. And quite rightly so.

Another Ryan Lie

that lowering taxes will bring about economic growth and help pay down the National debt

How are you going to pay down the debt with less money?
oh yeah, it's the trickle down theory that has always never worked

another lie

Rick, Thanks for re-posting this (which I had missed the first time around).

The crux is:

The Ryan campaign attempted to use the Colorado 14ers in a very political (and cynical) manner to burnish Ryan's credentials in a key battleground state.

When these claims were seriously questioned (something that Ryan's campaign didn't anticipate), there was a major attempt to re-write, retract, cover-up and obfuscate.

While no-one really cares whether Ryan has climbed 3 or 40 Colorado 14ers ** (his absolutely primeval policy stances are what really concerns me), Ryan's boosters are right -- this issue says a lot about his character.

** I've only done 1 (Longs Peak)

I really have nothing to add... but feel compelled to have at least one post on the the BEST SUPERTOPO POLITICAL THREAD EVER...

Did he sign the registers at the summits of all the rad peaks he walked up. He's a piece of Mitt wrapped renus butter.
Whoever deleted this thread can't handle the truth that's why they destryoyed it. Censorship of any kind is wrong and un'american. It's strange though that there was political ads supporting The Romney?Ryan ticket right here on Supertopo... I hateed lookig at it but free speech and all... Dan

The Eiger, The Monc,

riley congrats on these summits....Eiger is 13,025 ft, Monch is 13,474 per wikipedia. not a big deal, but if ryan included 13ers as 14ers like you just did i am sure that all you puritans would crap all over him as a lier....
