Werner also thinks the moon landings were faked...
and that the ancients could levitate huge boulders, and that we Americans are stupid for using cranes to move them


and the ancients lived for hundreds or thousands of years, talked to god, and wrote down all the knowledge about atoms 1000s of years ago,
we are just catching up to the scientific knowledge that they possessed, but it will never happen, because they were so much smarter than we are as a collective. We just don't use all of our brain, or we lost some part of it being too materialistic, or something

maybe he will explain it to us

I know a guy who ran himself over with his own Dodge Power Wagon. He was trying to stop it from rolling into my wife's Saab. His nick name was Tiny but he was a BIG dude so don't worry it didn't hurt the truck too badly. True story.

A friend of the mine years ago (1970???) was driving around his dads gas station...

He was going around the pumps like it was a race track...

Somehow he managed to fall out...

His jeep actually came around, ran him over, and killed him...

He both WON and LOST that race...

Lila,

Your remarks were appreciated as good insight into what life was like during that seige. It could happen anywhere. We build beautiful, safe lives for our families, then something else intrudes. It did in Boston, Sandy Hook, Manhatten too many places. It can be a random individual, group, or a force of nature. Life is fragile.

Glad to hear that you are OK. Glad that my firends and relatives are OK, at least as far as I can determine.

I think for a week or two, all my old Boston Marathon t-shirts will be at the top of the t-shirt rotation pile. I was never able to throw any of them out for sentimental reasons. Of course, they will be transported in my NY Yankee duffle bag. It makes perfect sense when you factor in that the carjack victim heard Manhatten come up in discussion with the brothers.

Maybe it is the New Englander in me - that spirit of determination and individuality. I will not allow this incident to keep me away from the sport I love or from frequenting the places honored in our shared history.

New objectives for this quarter - give blood, and send a check to the victims.

In this country, we value freedom. That means we have to put up with nutjobs speaking their minds. Not real blood - you've got to be kidding.....We don't have to believe them or agree with them. I know that in Boston and all of New England, we might go a little beyond not agreeing...we do like to be sure that our differing viewpoint has been expressed. No suffering in silence here.

I hope Muppet is not too frightened and can play outside happily.

Somewhere between Las Cruces and Tuscon we got stuck in a huge traffic jam, for no apparent reason. Caught a newscast at the laundromat that night. Turns out a semi "picked up" a hobo around 5am near El Paso and had no idea. When he hit a bump, or slowed down, or something, parts of the hobo started falling off the grill and landing on the cars behind. They shut the highway down while they collected body parts and tried to "piece" together what happened. The truck driver was long gone... still having no idea.

Turns out that was just the cover story. It was really a huge conspiracy involving the Mexican drug cartels, Homeland Security, Muslims, Communists, and of course Obama.

Its being reported by ABC that the perps learned how to make their bombs from a al-quay-duh web site the frequented.

How about going after the websites?

How about throwing out the First Amendment?

(note: clearly the Constitution was intended to be a living document and sh#t like terrorist websites that disseminate information designed to hurt or kill everyone else were NOT what was intended to be protected by the 1st Amendment... just like the 2nd was not intended to guarantee any nut job can buy any gun they want at any time, regardless of sanity or competence.)

"How about going after the websites?"


What country(s) are the sites hosted in?

Do you have any idea?


Do you understand what's involved in effectively banning access in one country to a web site from another?


Any clue at all?


Ever?

They seek to destroy you, any way they can. They should not be able to produce a website OR on line magazine. Drones to the IP addy..

hmmmm Free speech.. Well since ive seen you rant on about WESTBORO and other organizations (and deservedly so) , im stuck wondering why you dont give that same treatment to a group with the wish to see you dead.



edit: I think its high time we adopted the rumored techniques of ol General Pershing in dealing with al-quay-duhs and wanna beees.....

So now we can see the inside

Fear and Paranoia, the most basic emotion of a right winger

should we put the Nation on Lock Down, just because of a couple of nuts, or what you call the Enemy.

I'm more fearful of the 30 million American right wingers armed to the gills with WMDs.

They are so riled up, that anything can set them off.
