Goldy’s year in review

I wrote a shit-ton of posts, the election didn’t go so well, and my daughter, alas, grew yet another year closer toward adulthood. Other than that, 2010 was mostly a blur.

    I wrote a shit-ton of comments, made 50% on Gold and Silver, dems got their ass kicked, and Obama blew 4 trillion in 2 years. All our grandchildren will be born with massive debts. Thanks Omama

    In ld(iot)’s reckoning that’s many “shit-tons” and it doesn’t even include December. Congrats on your portfolio performance Roger Rabbit. You may be a rabbit but you invest like a hedgehog. Long term results beating the volatile short term gains of the mindless herd.

    The election didn’t go so well – we got gridlock. A lump of coal in anyone’s stocking.

    But Dino Lossi’d, the state legislature stayed in halfway sane hands, the ugly Mitch McConnell is still MINORITY leader in the U.S. Senate and Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina pissed away tons of cash proving you can’t buy everything.

    In the New Year I’m expecting things to brighten up some in areas other than politics especially the economy – that’s got to change.

    Costco, it now appears, doesn’t own the state of Washington. I got mad at the Obama man. Then I went to RedState and saw that they were even madder at McConnell, Boehner, Cantor & Co. That confused me. And it spooked me how much they sounded just like the pie fight on Daily Kos. The lame duck was a typical reporter 10 minutes before deadline. The Tea Partay was co-opted more times than One-Eyed Nancy in Lynnwood. Now in Olympia they’re handing out hatchets in lieu of meds. That’ll teach us.

    Puddy’s favrit story was Clay “V for Vendetta” Duke, motivated to raging hatred by Media Matters (Media Morons) funded by George Soros, walking into the Panama City School Board Meeting and firing his pistol like a good liberal would, missing the target at point blank range. Puddy glad he missed but his death is on Media Morons and George Soros head! Not many stories on right wing peeps going off like that but many leftist thoughts on Tea Party members who haven’t pulled a stunt like the Media Moron fueled hatred of Clay Duke.

    38 Rog, Can you exist without your Pers 1 pension increases every year, get used to it, it will soon all be gone….have to go back to will writing for old folks soon.

    PS I know a bit about those kind of guv lawyers, I produced case law in this state regarding Elder individuals being screwed by a city of Renton attorney who was writing wills for his councilman’s elder friends, without their knowledge. In the end justice was served, and that councilman and his F’n crooked City attorney got their hat handed to them in a basket. But their kids learned from the parents how to steal estates from elder people, so they still work the magic…

    Once again all can see the progressive hatred carried over from 2010 to 2011 by the HA resident dumb brick ylb. Since he has nothing on Chris Christie he goes the Chris Matthews way and calls the man a “fat loud-mouthed bully”. Of course there is no evidence of this from ylb. No link. No policy. Just hatred like always. The funny thing is Christie is one of the few accountable politicians in either party and that must really mess with the dumb brick ylb’s head. Well any fact not found in a kook-aid site will scramble the dumb brick ylb’s head.

  32. 42

    Puddybud identifying rujax liberal scientist deathfrog and zotz as fools! spews:

    How do you know the HA dumb brick ylb has lost another argument with his insipid commentary? The dumb brick ylb repeats the same commentary already discredited months ago. Kind of like what Roger Dumb Rabbit does with his continual repetition of the $900 Billion in “lost” revenue argument by keeping all tax rates the same when CNN Money destroyed that argument last month.

    Remember your first GoldLine attack dumb brick ylb? Butt you didn’t stop. You kept it up all through the summer using the Anthony Small Weiner GoldLine attack. Yet GoldLine still has their A+ BBB rating. You went more ape in this thread. Now you’ve gone off the deep end above. While you were still acting ape, Soros already bought $millions in gold and you never saw it coming. Why? You sit at home all day while others are working hard screen scraping all the latest crap from kook-aid sites so you never learn anything useful for argument purposes. Yet you use some stupid sun “moving through the sky” analogy. Yes, the sun rises and sets each day and your hero Soros uses that time trying to destroy the American economy. The man the dumb brick ylb hero worships recently said

    “Today, China has not only a more vigorous economy, but actually a better functioning government than the United States,”

    Way to go libtardo. Soros is dissing the Odumba Administration, the man he personally helped erect, the man many prominent leftists called “the messiah” in 2008. The man who famously said

    Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth.

    Those are whom you worship dumb brick ylb. Remember the 2007 link Puddy placed with Soros cheer leading for Odumba? Look it up fool. Now we see Soros is knee-capping Odumba and gang. And the dumb brick ylb keeps worshiping Soros.

    Get help dumb brick ylb.

    Once again Roger Dumb Rabbit is wrong. Wasn’t it you who once said

    Your organ grinder monkey started this war, recession, and deficit. Republicans start things they can’t finish. Democrats clean up the messes Republicans makes.

    Such progressive hatred. Calling Bush a monkey. You and the dumb brick ylb. So now Republicans are tasked to clean up the Odumba Sadministration crapola, like their claim unemployment would never top 8% with the Porkulus Spending Bill and then the later Porkulus II, and the real mess left by congressional DUMBOCRATS.

    Hey Goldy, here’s another year in review comment… Now why wasn’t that in Goldy’s year in review? And it’s standard MSM too so the dumb brick ylb has no useful retort.

    Or maybe you can look at “the most ethical administration in history” and how many whack-job leftists Odumba made as appointments bypassing the DUMBOCRATIC Senate. Odumba made 28 recess appointments in 2010 including these whackjobs: James Cole, Donald Berwick, and Craig Becker. Bush made 23 total for the first two years of his administration. Now why wasn’t this in Goldy’s year in review?

    Clay Duke, a progressive leftist who was driven to his pathological hatred to personally attack the Panama City School Board in Florida with a gun by the progressive whack-jobs at Media Matters. Now why wasn’t that in Goldy’s year in review?

    Paul Krugman talked positively about death panels on a national TV Sunday morning pundit show. Yet, this congressional DUMBOCRAT doesn’t want to discuss death panels. Wait a minute… HA progressives attacked Sarah Palin when she correctly mentioned this “provision” in the original bill and now it seems it’s back. Now why wasn’t that in Goldy’s year in review?

    Liberal Scientist spews:

    Oh God, the idiot is back…

    So Pud, I haven’t seen you post since I schooled you here. And here and here.

    As you recall, you were (incoherently) raving about wanting the people interested in halting global warming to have to live in the jungle, or something – it’s always hard with you and your “logic”. But you’d been throwing bricks, as usual, and I very civilly asked you your thoughts like this:

    With regard to energy policy and carbon emissions and climate change, the status quo seems disastrous. Do you not agree, Pud?

    Shouldn’t we – as a nation and as world-citizens – plan and engineer a way to alter the way the world economy is powered? You don’t deny that we’re running out of oil, do you? You don’t deny that human-derived greenhouse gasses are altering the climate, do you? You don’t deny that the boatloads of dollars that we ship to the oil-producers are impoverishing us as we fund the very people dedicated to the destruction of the US, do you?

    If you agree with any of this, then what do you propose we do?

    You, of course, disappeared after that. You never took the opportunity to respond with your well-considered thoughts. So, I ask again, what’s your answer?

  36. 46

    Puddybud identifying rujax liberal scientist deathfrog and zotz as fools! spews:

    Europe approved the drug Avastin to fight advanced breast cancer in wimens. Odumba’s FDA rejected the use of the same drug Avastin to fight advanced breast cancer in wimins. The FDA rationale? They claimed Avastin is expensive. They claimed “a sufficient benefit in slowing disease progression to outweigh the significant risk to patients.” Europe disagreed. Where is Brenda Helversen or Sarah or Sarge or Tlazoteotl or many of the other leftist wimens wondering about this “death panel” decision? If Mrs Puddy had breast cancer Puddy would want the best drugs available.

    In a joint letter to the FDA and key lawmakers, two organizations — Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance— urge that Avastin continue to be approved for metastatic breast cancer patients and warn of the message this “decision sends about drug development for women with advanced breast cancer.”

    Puddy happily gives time and money to Susan G Komen for the Cure. Now why wasn’t this in Goldy’s year in review?

    Puddybud identifying rujax liberal scientist deathfrog and zotz as fools! spews:

    Umm little mental twerp Lib UnScientist,

    Puddy doesn’t answer to every whim of yours. You schooled Puddy? HAHAHAHAHAHA. Look how stupid your argument is just from your first link…

    On the one hand, you rail against liberals who advocate policies of progressive taxation and other egalitarian policies that have the effect of minimizing wealth disparities – class warfare as your compatriots on the right might call it.

    On the other hand, with these posts you complain that people on the left who are concerned about climate change (and not that all the people attending climate conferences are on the left, by any means) are elitists who want to live the good life, and in order to do so, demand that others must live lives of deprivation.

    You seem to forget the actual words and deeds of the elite leftists who rail on the common folk for their CO2 emissions. This is why you are so stupid to many people here. It’s the same leftists who want higher taxes are the same ones who wastefully use their largess to travel around in large CO2 producing boats, CO2 producing SUVs and fly private CO2 producing airplanes. Puddy gave you Robert Kennedy Jr, who as a green advocate takes his private jets and uses large CO2 producing SUVs. Puddy gave you John Effin Kerry who uses 7 large CO2 producing SUVs and tried to escape Massachusetts taxes by mooring his super expensive CO2 producing boat in Rhode Island. Puddy gave you Al Gore who at the latest conference left his CO2 producing limo running for an hour so it would be air conditioned cool when he left. Oh remember Al Gore’s electric utility bill for his expensive Tennessee house? Or how about Barbara Streisand who got pissed off when Google placed her CA estate on Google maps? Then we learn she has a man made waterfall on her property and she has a big utility bill each month. Or how about John Green Edwards and his 28K square foot house and otehr covered buildings and all his CO2 producing SUVs? And this fool Unscientist claims to school Puddy. All those examples have links previously left on this blog. Puddy won’t even venture or look at the other two since you got SMACKED so badly on that one Unscientist.

    See ya!

    From the thread where this was originally discussed:

    At the next environmentalist whack-job conference the whack-job attendees are whisked away to a secret location. These environmentist whack-jobs are put in the hot jungle under tents with no lights, no running water, no toilet facilities just porta-potties, a wood fire pit with some pots and pans, no air conditioning, and have them fend for themselves. They want to tell the world how to live but fly in their private airplanes, live large in their 5-10,000 sq ft homes and drive SUV vehicles.

    Merry CHRISTmas

    You were advocating that people attending environmental conferences be kidnapped and subject to torture and deprivation. This was not some critique of wealthy ‘leftists’ and hypocrisy (which might have even had some merit). No, you were railing against a whole class of people – those with a different agenda than you – and wishing violence on them. Typical sick right-wing fantasies of grotesque torture.

    I say again, what kind of monster are you?

    Odumba’s FDA rejected the use of the same drug Avastin to fight advanced breast cancer in wimins.

    Once again you demonstrate your misapprehension of complex topics. And your link is to a palpably hostile screed against “ObamaCare” from Investors Business Daily – politically motivated to attack Democrats and promote pharmaceutical companies.

    Avastin is fabulously expensive, as are most biologics.
    It has potentially serious side effects.
    It has not been shown to prolong survival in patients with metastatic breast cancer.

    From this:

    An advisory panel has voted 12 to 1 to recommend that the FDA remove the advanced breast cancer indication from bevacizumab (Avastin), after two large clinical trials failed to demonstrate a clinically meaningful benefit of the drug, which carries serious side effects.

    Here’s some popular press (NYT) about Avastin, which includes:

    Articles in this series will explore medical treatments used despite scant proof they work and will consider steps toward medicine based on evidence.

    And despite its price, which can reach $100,000 a year, Avastin has become one of the most popular cancer drugs in the world, with sales last year of about $3.5 billion, $2.3 billion of that in the United States.

    Studies show the drug prolongs life by only
    a few months, if that.

    I did not say that I was qualified to determine what drugs should be used with breast cancer should (please never) Mrs. Puddy have breast cancer. I said you were not qualified to determine that.

    The larger point was that you railed on (driven by ideologic right-wing screed IBD) about how “Obamacare” “death panels” were depriving American women of necessary drugs for breast cancer That is not happening. I tried to point out some of the complexities associated with using biologicals (about which I do have expertise), including safety, cost, and in this case apparent lack of meaningful clinical effect, in the hope that you might grasp some of these subtleties.

It seems that unless you’re both part of the upper 0.5% who are materially advanced by the Republican agenda and are without commitment to your nation/community/humanity, then it makes no rational sense to support the insanity that Pud regularly spews here.

    I hate to resort to asserting insanity as the core motivation of an adversary (seems intellectually lazy), but what are we left with?

    This is someone willing to believe that the earth is 6000 years old. Manifest fantasy. I don’t want to beat that horse too much, but for me it does get to his ability to self-delude, to replace observation and rational thought with a tribal or ideology-driven set of received beliefs.

    I think his obsession with George Soros is emblematic of that received wisdom – he’s clearly listening and internalizing Glenn Beck – which is a terrifying thought. That some people can be so easily deluded gives me great pause, and I despair for us as a people.

Companies lie all the time. If Macd’s started advertising that their greasiest fattiest burger was the ultimate health food, they would believe it. If a company that manufactures drugs says that that drug would be effective for certain diseases or afflictions, they believe it, unquestioningly.

    You are not allowed to manufacture false medicines. You are not allowed to fabricate test results in research. You are not allowed to make false claims about any product you manufacture, PERIOD.

    DF @ 76

    I totally agree with your position. However, thalidomide is actually useful for some things – like certain blood system cancers.

    It was a great triumph of US federal pharmaceutical regulators when they kept it out of the US when it was proposed for use as a sedative and anti-emetic during pregnancy – we were all protected when our government employees did their jobs so well, as they often do.

    It has become clear, though, that the agent in question, does have efficacy in myeloma – a bone marrow cancer that affects mainly people over 60, a disease for which there really aren’t great treatments. A vocal group of thalidomide victims has been urging its withdrawal because of what it did to them – which I think is understandable but ultimately nonsensical. People with myeloma are not having babies – half are men and almost all the women are post-menopausal.

    The Thalidomide victims in that case are standing on the premise that it is too easy, and in fact very common in the United States for physicians to prescribe chemical drugs off-label. It is done all the time, and it would only be a matter of time before some doctor does it with Thalidomide. The Company that manufactured it was German, and suffered no sanction whatsoever for the incredible harm their product did to people. The company fought for decades to keep its product on the market, and in fact the stuff is still legal in some countries, and is still manufactured by that same company.

  73. 85

    Liberal Scientist spews:

    …it would only be a matter of time before some doctor does it with Thalidomide.

    I’m not sure that’s true.

    Given what’s known about this agent – it’s pretty notorious. Also, it’s WICKED expensive. I think that it’s not something that’s going to be picked up willy-nilly and given to pregnant women.

    And again, I totally agree that what happened in the 50s and 60s was a travesty and criminal, and that the pharmaceutical company that shamelessly marketed it should have it’s directors and executives in jail. That does not negate the fact that for older people with incurable bone marrow cancer, it can be a very helpful and effective medicine.

    Puddy is dishonest and likely also insane.

    He occasionally demonstrates some signs of intelligence, but cannot or will not maintain a coherent line of logic, or a consistent focus on a topic so as to have a rational discussion or debate.

    He really just drops by, drops his pants and leaves multiple steaming piles of shit.

    I’ve personally had enough – this is in no way a concession to Pud – it’s simply impossible to maintain a conversation with anyone so manifestly malignant.

    @103
    I wonder about the paid shill possibility, or at least a volunteer shill – somebody aiming to disrupt for the sake of disruption.

    Perhaps discussion of him in the third person – amongst the sane on the thread – would be somehow constructive.

    For example, he raises the issue of Avastin. He typifies a number of problems with American health care here.

    For example, he fumes that he would want the best medicine for his wife, should she need it (he could just as likely be a candidate for Avastin, as it is most commonly used for colon cancer, which I don’t believe has a gender predilection). That’s a lovely sentiment, but he errs in assuming that Avastin (or any other really really expensive biologic) is “the best medicine”. The whole point of the FDA decision is one of dispassionately evaluating data looking at large numbers of women with metastatic breast cancer, and seeing that their life spans were not prolonged with this agent.

    He also makes the false argument that he’s “siding with the Susan G. Komen Foundation” as if they had any expertise in evaluating novel and complicated cancer therapies. They don’t, and neither does he. They are a fund raising and advocacy organization, and even the quote Puddy uses makes clear that their issue is the “message being sent” by not approving this medication, not that the medication actually works. They, and he, are essentially demanding access to therapies that have not be proven to work, for some reason (they’re the newest and coolest? They’re shilling for the pharmaceutical companies? They’re responding to TV ads? Who knows – but they’re driving up health care costs needlessly by doing so)

    His whole rant launched from his claim (a false one, of course, proven so by Media Matters) that the FDA rejected Avastin for metastatic breast cancer because of cost. He was again parroting right wing lies. He backed that up with a link to Investors’ Business Daily – an editorial therein that was naked pharmaceutical industry propaganda.

    He really is useless, and I for one am done trying to earnestly engage.

    He’s the same sort of folks that fell in love with the DMSO and Laetrile fads. Such folks insisted that the chemicals worked, but never could show how, or in whom the stuff actually cured of the various cancers that it was pointed at. They could never show a single first-hand example of anyone who was actually cured by these chemicals.

    It was all second hand info, all rumor, and in fact when DMSO was proven to induce incredibly toxic effects in people, the fans insisted that it was a conspiracy to keep the new “wonder” drug off the market because it really worked so well that the drug companies were protecting their profits.

    What DMSO did, was kill the liver, and shut down its functions completely, while inducing chemical reactions in the fatty tissues that led to a toxic reaction in the skin, people who had been using DMSO were showing up in hospital emergency rooms with hydrogen sulfide, sulfur aldehydes and ketones being excreted through the skin. The patients were coming in literally as toxic waste emitters and they shut down entire floors of hospitals to deal with the stench and the chemicals. The so-called “toxic patients” thing that was happening back in the early 90’s.

    People STILL insisted that it couldn’t be DMSO, as it was such an incredible chemical that it would cure almost everything, and the drug companies were trying to cover that up. When DMSO was finally banned, the “toxic patients” disappeared.

    To this day there are still people that insist that it is the cure for most cancers and other ailments. I know one personally, and he insists that it was a conspiracy by the drug companies to keep it off the market. But, he also believes in UFOs, the Illuminati, and the secret societies that are really in control of everything.

    Don’t you dare lecture me about caring for the dying you despicable toad.

    I’ve seen far too many people die too young, and too many old people not allowed to die peacefully. And lives stunted by chronic illness and robbed of joy by pain and debilitation. I spend every working day with the chronically and critically ill – far too many days and late nights away from my family because another family needed my help.

    I don’t have to justify myself to you, you outrageously ignorant fuck.

    You don’t begin to understand that which you use as a cudgel against people you call ‘enemy’ – painstaking studies of people dying and drugs tested to help them, hard work of dedicated people, doctors and scientists, people who have promised to first do no harm.

    I have no intention of ever engaging you again. I’d reached that point already today with your word salad, with your bad faith posting, with your willful ignorance and willful refusal to engage in open and honest debate. But you went WAY over the line with your most recent taunting post above. You demonstrate unmitigated, sneering gall when you accuse me of not understanding that which I know intimately.

    I earned my chops in the Harborview emergency room with the dying and the dead, on the trauma and burn units, in the dialysis unit and on the medicine floors at an institution literally dedicated to taking care of the poorest and most forgotten – the homeless, the incarcerated, the mentally ill, the uninsured and the uninsurable, the mangled bodes from car crashes and the mangled lives of the addicted. I earned my chops at the VA taking care of American veterans, the people you Republicans make a game of turning your backs on, people stalked by voices and violence and war, stunted by addiction and disease and fear. I earned my chops as an intern in the UW ICU, the place where other hospitals in 5 states send the patients they just can’t handle. And I’ve told mothers and husbands and grandkids and fathers that the one they love is gone – way too many times. I’ve spent too many nights and days to count working to exhaustion trying to keep those loved ones alive.

    So fuck you, Puddy. You are all about hurting people, taunting and lying and destroying, invading the spaces good people try to create, shattering difficult discussions and debates with puerile and bombastic nastiness. You have absolutely no idea of what you talk about, and you do it with a glib contempt and emotional violence that I hope earns you a place in your hell.

    I haven’t got the time to waste engaging a tiny little shriveled mind like yours – so fuck off, Puddy.

    Hey Pudds,
    Better start packing your shit.

    I wish all these wierdos would just do it, and go away. Like the Raelians did. I mean, I thought you folks were all about keeping up with the Joneses. Thats really what your whole belief system is all about.

    @112. Paddy can see it’s all about the [medical] costs to a progressive.
    Once again, you have it backwards. We leave that to the conservative Arizona death panels.

    Puddy, you must be very proud of your fellow tea baggers for being able impose medical death penalties on the poor. Jesus will love you even more now because your party helped save money.

    Oh you pooor poor schmuck Lib Unscientist

    Don’t you dare lecture me about caring for the dying you despicable toad.

    Oh my then you don’t lecture Puddy about how you agree with the cost decision of Avastin.

    I’ve seen far too many people die too young, and too many old people not allowed to die peacefully. And lives stunted by chronic illness and robbed of joy by pain and debilitation. I spend every working day with the chronically and critically ill – far too many days and late nights away from my family because another family needed my help.

    First off dude, Puddy witnessed his first MURDER at 3 years old. Puddy still sees it in Puddy’s minds eye today. Puddy remembers the screams of his mother screaming “They killed my baby. They killed my baby”. So don’t get all high and mighty on Puddy. Puddy made a vow to never be in that position and that’s why Puddy doesn’t do drugs.

    You don’t begin to understand that which you use as a cudgel against people you call ‘enemy’ – painstaking studies of people dying and drugs tested to help them, hard work of dedicated people, doctors and scientists, people who have promised to first do no harm.

    Oh my… You call Puddy enemy every day here. So what’s your point?

    I have no intention of ever engaging you again. I’d reached that point already today with your word salad, with your bad faith posting, with your willful ignorance and willful refusal to engage in open and honest debate. But you went WAY over the line with your most recent taunting post above. You demonstrate unmitigated, sneering gall when you accuse me of not understanding that which I know intimately.

    Oh spare Puddy the pity party. So where have you ever stated you are in health care? People have met Puddy at HA Drunken Liberals 5 times! People know what Puddy does. Puddy spends his own money helping the poor and needy every year. People know Puddy makes charity trips to spend time at natural disasters. People know Puddy sends large funds to ADRA to help worldwide victims. You Lib Unscientist hide behind some moniker. So you are in health care. That’s nice. Puddy has seen death and suffering too just not at your level. And Puddy and wife have responded to emergencies, a recent one was our neighbors as we were the first on the scene with all the neighborhood doctors still asleep. So you can lecture all you want but you have no idea where Puddy has been or the miles walked in Puddy’s shoes.

    I earned my chops as an intern in the UW ICU, the place where other hospitals in 5 states send the patients they just can’t handle.

    That’s really nice. You claim are a good person. Anyone eve met you at a Drunken Liberals to verify your activities? And it still doesn’t excuse you from your attacks on Puddy on Avastin.

    You are all about hurting people, taunting and lying and destroying, invading the spaces good people try to create, shattering difficult discussions and debates with puerile and bombastic nastiness.

    What? If Puddy was into hurting people, why would Puddy show Puddy’s face in a liberal meeting? Puddy spends his money to create. Puddy gave up a big down payment for a winter London and Paris vacation to instead go to Katrina for a week. Any time you want to see the Katrina pictures let Puddy know. Your ilk called progressives are into hurting, destroying and engaging in puerile and bombastic nastiness. You are sadly mistaken so go ahead. Puddy a big guy and it rolls off Puddy’s back.

    This snappy apothegm is the logical equivalent of saying that the Defense Appropriations Act “requires that every United States citizen, other than those who leave the country, engage in accepting a minimum level of protection by the United States military.”

    Hey Roger Dumb Rabbit… The vacuum exists between your two floppy ears. There is no comparison between national defense and health care.

    LS, it’s true Puddybud does not believe in the Rapture, does not agree with the various dispensationalist interpretations of 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17.

    However even I, an atheist, have prayed for the Rapture so that God or Jesus or the Angels or whoever can beam this miserable SOB up!

    You watch murder and torture fantasies like 24 and all that war loving crap on Faux News. You support torture policies. Of course you believe in hurting people. Not to mention all those right wing bullshit websites.

    And of course you show up at DL to throw your weight around. Those are the people you most believe should be HURT!

    At a DL you sport a cheshire cat grin and have the fantasy of the chatty scatty lady on the National Review cruise:

    I lie on the beach with Hillary-Ann, a chatty, scatty 35-year-old Californian designer. As she explains the perils of Republican dating, my mind drifts, watching the gentle tide. When I hear her say, ” Of course, we need to execute some of these people,” I wake up. Who do we need to execute? She runs her fingers through the sand lazily. “A few of these prominent liberals who are trying to demoralise the country,” she says. “Just take a couple of these anti-war people off to the gas chamber for treason to show, if you try to bring down America at a time of war, that’s what you’ll get.” She squints at the sun and smiles. ” Then things’ll change.”
