“The David Goldstein Show” tonight on Newsradio 710-KIRO

I’m out with my co-conspirators today, plotting the nonviolent overthrow of the United States government, so I probably won’t have any time to post, but I’ve got a helluva lineup scheduled for “The David Goldstein Show” tonight from 7PM to 10PM on Newsradio 710-KIRO. I like to go with the flow, so things could change, but here’s what I have lined up for tonight’s show:

7PM: Political rant-a-rama: Eli Sanders of The Stranger joins me at the top of the hour for a firsthand report from the mistrial of Lt. Ehren Watada, after which I plan to rant on just about everything that happened in the news this week except for the death of Anna Nicole Smith. Won’t mention it. Not even here.

8PM: Hate your elected officials? Maybe it’s time to change the way we elect them? Political activist and electoral reform advocate Krist Novoselic joins me for the hour to talk about Instant Runoff Voting — also called “ranked choice voting” — and other reforms that could make our democracy more democratic. (Oh… I’m also told that Krist once played in some band or something.) A Republican on the Seattle City Council? That could be the result from one reform I particularly like. Tune in to find out why I’d propose such heresy, and what Krist has to say about it. Krist will also be appearing at Seattle’s Town Hall on Weds. Feb. 21, to talk about electoral reform.

FairVote.org

9PM: What’s the matter with Oregon? TJ of the blog Loaded Orygun will fill us in on what’s happening south of the border.

Tune in tonight (or listen to the live stream) and give me a call: 1-877-710-KIRO (5476).

PROGRAMMING NOTE:
Tune in Sunday night when former Gov. Gary Locke will tell us where he stands on replacing the Viaduct, and unofficial HA D.C. Bureau Chief Ken Vogel calls in with an update on what’s happening in the other Washington.

    Looks to me like she is doing everything she can to NOT get re-elected! This bill is just another political payoff, she has to reward those political campaign contributors, because she will be on the phone asking for more money as soon as the legislature adjourns.

    She appointed a NARAL board member to the pharmacy board yesterday, so the women’s rights group got their payoff too!

    She will do ensure that nothing passes to stop the vultures in the the payday loan industry – that too is just another payoff.

    Hairy lady@6,

    I am not a foe of gambling and I have no interest in calling a Reverend. I am from Las Vegas and I love to gamble, but then, I know when to pick up my winnings, put it in my pocket and walk out the door with it!

    Gambling destroys a lot of people and a lot of families who have the misfortune to be born with a gambling addicted parent. Hundreds of families move to Vegas every month and lots of them leave totally penniless several months later.

    According to the guy over at Orcinus, the way Wingnut Ideas filter in to the mainstream is that the extreme Right keeps floating insane ideas, and when one of the idiot concepts develops traction in the American Hinterland, the GOP adopts the crazy talking point secure in the knowledge that the American Dustbowl scattered enough Snopesian genes to the cities so that the crazy Wingnut idea will finally gain traction nationwide.

    Just think of the possibilities: A whole nation full of deluded nitwits to manipulate!

    Gregoire’s Chief of Staff announces within a month, the state will move to amend all compacts with Indian tribes to expand gambling in the state…….just what everybody said wouldn’t happen!

    Mac? Were we reading the same posts?

    Governor Gregoire has been criticized rather harshly (considering that this is a lefty blog) for her stand on this. I’m one of the folks that has done the criticizing, but I’m certainly not the only one. I seem to recall Goldy making some rather loud noises in that direction as well.

    Just because she’s a Democrat doesn’t mean that we just fall into lockstep with her on every issue.

    I still think she’s wrong here. Very wrong, considering the public vote that was, in essence, a referendum on increasing gambling, and along with all the real problems that this will bring up, there is the one problem that politicians on both sides can always seem to relate to.

    It will cost her votes.

    I’m even a bit more annoyed, as my understanding was that this was her decision to make, and yet she brought the legislature into it, apparently to give herself some cover.

    This will cost us votes.

    Hopefully, there is more to this deal than meets the eye, and we’ve already found out that it wasn’t quite as bad as we had originally thought, but whether it was a little bad or very bad, my call is that it shouldn’t have flown.

    Side note – This will not be a universally unpopular decision. A couple of months ago, a very pleasant couple came into my office. They had heard about Gig Harbor and had driven around and said that they “fell in love with it” and were sure that they would be buying here.

    They only had one question. It seems that they couldn’t find the casino, and could I show them where it was?

    When told that there wasn’t one here, and the nearest was in Lakewood, the wife told the husband that she couldn’t live here, they thanked me for my time and left.

    John,

    This is the part of the article I was referring to,

    “In the name of equity, the state will allow similar expansion for other tribes, commission members and the governor’s office said after the 6-3 vote on the Spokane compact.

    “Within a month, we will move to amend the other tribes’ compacts, providing largely the same features as the Spokane agreement,” said Tom Fitzsimmons, the governor’s chief of staff and an expert on tribal relations.

    Statewide, the number of gambling machines at tribal casinos could rise from 18,225 to about 25,000, including the Spokane machines and modest increases at the other locations, he said. Most tribes will be held to their current two-casino maximum, he said.”

    I read an article that said the Republicans lost over a million votes, because they pushed a new federal law banning on-line poker right before the Nov elections. So, you do lose votes both ways. I like gambling, but I did vote against Eyeman’s initiative, because I didn’t think there is a problem in finding a casino here.

    spews:

    Uh, Hypocrite?

    Yes, most of us know at least part of this information, and we aren’t surprised at the parts we didn’t already know.

    Still, the details are interesting. For example:

    “* Did you know that 47 countries have reestablished their embassies in Iraq?”

    Odd, as the latest list I have is limited to:

    Afghanistan, Armenia, Australia, Bahrain, Bangladesh, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Netherlands, Oman, Philippines, Romania, and, of course, the United States

    Several other countries have Ambassadors that are credentialed to Iraq, and at least one of these (Sweden) is currently staying in Jordan. Several of the Embassies listed do not have office hours listed in Iraq, and I have no immediate way of confirming if they have any personnel at the Embassy.

    Oh, and the Iraqi government page has no embassies listed. Not even ours.

    “* Did you know that the Iraqi government employs 1.2 million Iraqi people?

    Yipe! Yes, that is a lot of Iraqis, especially considering that their economy is still in shambles. I sure hope they’re spending our tax dollars wisely.

    * Did you know that 3100 schools have been renovated, 364 schools are under rehabilitation, 263 schools are now under construction and 38 new schools have been built in Iraq?

    Good. Glad to hear it. Now, if we could only make it safe enough for the kids to go to the schools…

    “* Did you know that Iraq\’s higher educational structure consists of 20 Universities, 46 Institutes or colleges and 4 research centers?

    Admittedly, I didn’t do an extensive search. Could you perhaps tell me how many of these are currently functioning at pre-war levels? It seems that the Iraqi Ministry of Education’s website is down.

    “* Did you know that 25 Iraq students departed for the United States in January 2004 for the reestablished Fulbright program?

    Good. 25 kids that will not have to worry about being blown up on the way to school.

    “* Did you know that the Iraqi Navy is operational? They have 5- 100-foot patrol craft, 34 smaller vessels and a navel infantry regiment?

    Boy, howdy! I’m impressed. If Yemen decides to invade, they’re good to go. (Side snipe – What exactly does a navel infantry regiment do? Well, Napoleon did say that an army marches on its stomach!)

    “* Did you know that Iraq has a counter-terrorist unit and a Commando Battalion?”

    I should hope so by now! Wasn’t this scheduled to stand up about three years ago? They’ve got their hands pretty full too.

    Looking at the “glass half full” side here is difficult, as the glass isn’t even close to half full, but there are a few legitimate good points.

    While many of the Iraqi police and army units have terrible problems with morale and loyalty, they are making some progress.

    Of course, it would have been more if Bechtel hadn’t botched the job building the new police academy, to the point where it is uninhabitable.

    Ref: http://tinyurl.com/sx4wf

    And the NYSE probably doesn’t have much to worry about with the Iraqi Stock Exchange, open two hours a day, twice a week, but at least it is open, and that is a start.

    Ref: http://tinyurl.com/37npxe

    Oh, here’s a list of the companies currently listed on the Iraqi exchange:

    This is the best one “* Did you know that Iraq has an independent media that consist of 75 radio stations, 180 newspapers and 10 television stations?”

    In other words did you know that people are being paid by our government to write positive articles about the situation in Iraq for the Iraqi media organizations? If they write the truth, they don’t get the money…..

    Did you know the war will cost us taxpayers over 2 trillion dollars, and there is 50,000 to 100,000 wounded american soldiers (counting mental problems) and they still have not found the WMD’s we went into Iraq to keep Saddam from using on our kiddies.

    Kiroking. The solution involves reaching out to the rest of the world to help us solve the nightmare Bush has created (after impeaching and prosecuting his stupid traitor ass). Once Bush, and Cheney are behind bars, their replacement, probably Nancy, can take the thousands of steps it will take to try to bring world opinion of the U.S. back to where it shold be, and bring in other nations. The price we would have to pay for this would be far less than extending the occupation another decade.

    There is no way the U.S. and England can make the situation better if the neighbors in the region are working against us, especially the Saudis funding the Sunni insurgents. You never hear about the Saudis, only the Iranians, from the corporate controlled media.

    Bush truly wants the war to widen. There is no word to describe the amount evil that comprises his soul. Good thing he didn’t define a blue dress…..

    The world does not want Iraq to fall apart, but they hate Bush so much, they would never help us with him calling the shots. Can you blame them? If you are running for office in any country, just run on an anti-american platform, and you will probably win.

    If you don’t believe me, explain why we couldn’t paint the american flag on the bus carrying our soccer team through europe for the world cup. Because our soccer team would be attacked by “people” not by terrorists.

    Remember the Iranians reached out an olive leaf in 2003 according to Wilkerson, and wanted better relations, and Cheney turned them down flat. “We don’t negotiate with evil” is what he was to have said. Funny, Cheney calling someone else “evil”, what a laugh.

    The first step is to see justice served in this country. Bring the lying traitors in the White House that caused this fiasco to justice.

For example when I hit the ‘refresh’ on Firefox, the page will not completely reload, but ‘hangfire’ half way through. This is unique to this website. The same thing occassionally happens to me when I hit the ‘submit’ button.
    My solution is to copy my post, attempt the submit, and if it ‘misfires’, back out completely, relaod the entire base page and resubmit my post. Pretty much works all the time then.

    @33 (continued) Perhaps what I am saying is best summed up by quoting from the Wikipedia article on XHTML:

    “MSIE ships with ‘application/xhtml+xml’ set to an unknown type so that files of this type are treated as download files.[1] This means that nearly every browser surfing the internet has XHTML capabilities, but around 85% of them have XHTML disabled through the default install[2]. Windows Internet Explorer 7 still does not enable full XHTML capabilities by default.

    While most other browsers respond properly to all of the possible XHTML MIME types, they are not yet feature complete; for example Firefox and other Gecko-based browsers do not yet incrementally render XHTML as they receive it over the network in the way they do with HTML.”

    I hope you are not using MSIE 7. If you are, you really should take care to disable the ‘Active X’ “features”.
    This problem is slowly groping toward a solution. Part of the difficulty is found in serving various mobile devices. When I access HA with my wireless PDA I am currently limited to an older browser strictly resident in ROM. So making HA InterNet Mobile accessible adds complexity.

    Ah, Hypocrite. You have an interesting point.

    President Clinton was, indeed, much more effective than President Bush. We should be commending him on his effectiveness, rather than his popularity overseas.

    Clinton – Terrorists caught and jailed.

    Bush – Terrorists on the loose, tieing up thousands of US troops.

    Clinton – Iraq pacified and contained, Very limited, if any support of terrorists.

    Bush – Iraq is in chaos, and a breeding ground for terrorists.

    Clinton – Terror attacks on our soil are answered and the culprits caught.

    Bush – Terror attacks on our soil are used as an excuse to go to war. The culprits are still free.

    On the domestic side –

    Clinton – Balanced budget, shrinking government.

    Bush – Largest budget deficit in the history of the planet. Growing government.

    Of course, there is also the fact that the President is both the head of state, as well as the head of government. His popularity overseas is a direct reflection of how other countries view us, and is a useful tool in affecting the policies of our allies, and even our adversaries, so we also have:

    Clinton – Effectively deals with foriegn governments to forge trade and diplomatic ties.

    Bush – Unable to effectively deal with foreign governments. So unpopular as to put Americans overseas at risk of attack by foreign civilians, even in countries that have been allies for years.

    goldy………perhaps you would like to discuss what daily kos has to say about jews in general? hmmmm?

    ” How hypocritical of warmongering, amoral charlatans the likes of Netanyahu and other hijackers of the Holocaust as a uniquely Jewish event. It is of a vileness that transcends description to see the pontificating asses exploiting the slaughter of millions in order to justify the murders of potentially millions more in their insane f****** desire to carve out lebensraum for Israel and crush everything in their path with a self-righteous cruelty equivalent to that of any vicious regime of the past century. It is even more vile when an inclusive culture such as that of the United States is turned into an unthinking, brutally determined Golem by fifth columnists within who use their money and power to persecute and buy influence with our government officials and media in order to sanction their brutality, their duplicitous agenda and their wanton lust to engage in a genocide of their own.

    While the Holocaust may have been predominantly Jewish it sure as hell wasn’t exclusively Jewish and the dancing on the graves of millions to the beat of neocon-Likud war drums is dispicable and amoral. They hide behind their exploitation of The Holocaust in order to justify their ongoing arrogance and aggression against their neighbors and to brutalize those in the occupied territories”

    To some degree, you’re preaching to the choir here, as you’ll note that I put my name on all my posts. If I’m unwilling to put my name on something, then I probably shouldn’t post it.

    Still, some folks (mistakenly, in my opinion) fear reprisals, and a few employers have actually used blog posts as a reason for terminating employment.

    Certainly, if a poster puts his or her name on a post (or uses a name where their real identity is generally known), the post carries far more credibility. (I find that it also reduces the temptation to get vulgar.)

    This is one reason that the fake “dug” annoys me. The real dug’s identity is known to most of the regular posters here. I suspect that the fake one is a person that lost a bet and was supposed to vanish from our presence forever.

    Mr. Barelli,

    Not preaching to you in the least; we sit in the same pew.

    I also share your opinion that a fear of reprisals is misplaced.

    It is no surprise that bad-mouthing the boss – whether around a water cooler or on a blog – will likely reward most “at will” employees a pink slip. Many states protect workers from retaliation for their political views, and many others have even broader protections for “off the job” activities. Even Ellen Simonetti, the airline stewardess fired for “inappropriate” online pictures and comments was using her employment at Delta as a basis to create her Queen of the Sky guise. Nonetheless, she has filed – and rightly so – a discrimination complaint with the EOEC.

    Frankly, most of the cries mewing for a need to be anonymous are nonsense. As you’ve pointed out, using your own name lends a certain credibility to comments made and places a healthy check on vulgarity.

    As to using your own name, an attorney friend, way back in the mid-nineties explained it to me this way: Before posting anything on an online forum ask yourself if you’d be willing to print out your comments, walk down to a corner utility pole and tack them up for any and all to see. If “yes” – post away; if not – hold your counsel.

I’ve seen people post on rightwing blogs that they would never hire a liberal to work for their business. In addition, we know the Republicans currently running our government are illegally spying on American citizens, but we don’t know to what extent — or what they’re doing with the information. It’s inconceivable that this blog is not monitored by people who wouldn’t hesitate to retaliate against liberal posters for expressing their views. After all, some of our political opponents consider liberals “traitors” and publicly state that we should be put in concentration camps or killed. Under these circumstances, anonymity is a reasonable and necessary precaution.

    An Open Letter to My Girlfriend\’s Cat the Horses Asses

    Listen, I get that you\’re a cat a horses ass . I\’m actually OK with all that. I like not having to take you on 5am walks or to pry a slobbery, grass-caked tennis ball out of your food hole only to throw it again so that you can have a cheap thrill. You\’re above all that. But still… gimme a break, shithead!

    It\’s like, I\’m minding my own business, asleep in my bed, totally dreaming about pizza, and you lay down on my face! Hey, ass butt, news flash: I need that to breath and live! Don\’t sleep on it! Shit! Also I can smell your butt when you do that, because your idiot moron cat horses ass brain makes you think that I might actually WANT to smell it (which I totally don\’t) so you deftly position it right in front of my nose. Here\’s a shocker, my friend – your butt smells bad! It smells like a butt that just got pooped out of! DIARRHEA pooped out of. I\’m no vet, but you should get that checked out. I know the whole barbed johnson thing makes gettin\’ some a bit less complicated for you, but I can tell you from personal experience that girls don\’t want to be constantly reminded that you have an asshole and poop comes out of it.

    While I\’m on the topic of excretion, I can\’t help but notice that you scramble to jump head-first into the toilet every time I\’m in the middle of peeing into it. One day I\’ll actually let you go ahead and do it, because you don\’t seem to want to learn that lesson the easy way. Your best bet is to stay on the outside looking in… things aren\’t as glamorous in there as you seem to think. Still, having to leave the toilet seat lid down to protect you from making an enormous (albeit inevitable) mistake is getting old. WAY old.

    What the frick is that awful sound you make? Are you meowing braying or gargling or what? Make up your damn mind! I understand that cats horses asses make a few different sounds, but you try to fit them all into one breath, and it sounds like vomit passing through a 3rd-grader\’s hand-me-down flutaphone. Pick a sound and stick with that, but NOT at 4am, and NOT while you\’re sleeping on my face with your stinky anus under my nose, you slut.

    Listen, genius, when a door to a room is closed, that means that there is no physical way for you to get into that room, no matter how bad you might want to. I see that you\’re able to fit a paw hoof under the door, but try as you might (and you always do), your entire body will NOT fit through the crack under the door. Fatty. Trust me on this one!

    Do you even understand the concept of eating? Food goes in your mouth, you chew it, then you swallow it. In that order. It\’s a fairly intuitive and innate process; or so I would\’ve thought, until I spent a few days hanging around with YOUR ass. You seem to prefer going through several rounds of chewing food and spitting it back out onto the floor before you decide on some pieces you might be interested in swallowing. Also, swallow what\’s in your mouth before you drink out of your water bowl. I\’m sorry, it\’s just good manners. It\’s probably also important for you to understand that when you open your mouth to drink, whatever was in there will FALL BACK OUT if you haven\’t swallowed it yet. Cat food Horses ass food probably tastes gross enough without you ruining a cool, refreshing water dish with tuna hay flavoring. Get a life.

    You have the most pungent and repulsive feces of any animal I\’ve ever heard of, living or dead, real or imaginary. If I could bottle that scent, it could easily be used as biological warfare. I\’m serious, we could end this skirmish in the middle east with the contents of the plastic baggie sitting on my front porch waiting for the garbageman. I didn\’t know it was possible to turn cat food horses ass food and water into something that actually smells far, far worse than cat food horses ass food. Nice work. Ass.

    I don\’t hate you, buddy. You\’re cute, and occasionally heartwarming. But damn! Don\’t drink disgusting flowerpot water! Also don\’t do the other things I\’ve mentioned here. Seriously, don\’t.

    RANT: Crotch Rot

    Or as I like to call it, The Yeast Beast.

    Many men are more than happy to talk about the clitoris and the vagina all damn day and I am thrilled to accommodate these sicko pervs. However, there is a line we all hate to cross. But there comes a time when one must throw caution and good taste aside and address these issues in the interest of womanhood.

    Yes, yeast infections. Crotch rot. That burning itching dripping fungus that attacks the very area we hold most dear.

    I never used to get yeast infections. Then I started taking all these antibiotics, now I seem to be on my third one.

    I was not exactly sure the first day. I mean, I had a sort of itchy achy feeling radiating from between my legs. I called up my husband, Carl to report this. He likes to keep track of my crotch.

    \”Honey, I think I am really horny.\”
    Carl gulped. \”You think?\”
    \”It’s hard to say. I could be getting yeast infection. I definitely need something down there.\”
    \”Probably a yeast infection,\” Carl said gloomily.
    \”No, I think it is horniness. I want you.\”
    \”Whatever you say.\”
    \”I said I want you, dammit! I am longing for you! I need it bad.\”
    carl sighed. \”Okay, I get it.\”

    But then the burning began. The itching became unbearable, panties were an impossibility, and I was compelled to continually check for the tell-tale whitish ickiness. Soon I was fairly confident I had the crotch rot, but couldn’t quite find time to get to the grocery store.

    By mid morning I was in agony. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to lie back with my legs spread and shove an ice cube up my twat or floss with a burlap rope. The corncobs in the cornucopia table display suddenly looked very appealing. I exerted myself trying to dig and itch in a graceful manner in my open to the world office.

    At lunch I rushed to the store, being careful to walk with my legs four feet apart at all times. I grabbed the Monistat 3 from the shelf. A friend, who happens to also be a pharmacist, was working. I decided to be responsible and actually read the label.

    \”David, my crotch is on fire again. This says not to use repeatedly. Can I still use it?\”

    He paused. He then made some very professional type noises about consulting your physician.

    \”Don’t screw with me David, I need it BAD!\” I was in no mood.

    He admitted I could probably use it. I amused myself by bitching for several minutes about this latest series of primal punishments. David became concerned.

    \”You really should see a doctor. If you are getting them a lot you could be developing drug resistant strain.\” He went on from there.

    The basic premise was I could actually be using my vagina to breed my very own form of Super Yeast that would eventually be vulnerable only to kryptonite and the music of Barry Manilow. I couldn’t get into the doctor for at least a week. I asked for alternatives. David informed me many women used natural treatments, such as plain yogurt.

    Really?

    \”Umm, how exactly would you get the yogurt in there?\”

    He shrugged.

    I pondered this. I suggested I could make little yogurt popsicles and shove them inside. But David wasn’t sure if freezing would kill the cultures. The other scenarios I came up with seemed very messy or involved fancy equipment I did not own. Also, how long would you leave it? It is sort of warm down there and experience has taught me if yogurt sits out too long it spoils.

    \”Well, you can also use garlic,\” he suggested. \”You wrap some open cloves in a cheese cloth and insert overnight. Be sure to leave a piece of the cloth where you can reach it though.\”

    Beautiful. This would have the added benefit of keeping vampires out from between my thighs while I slept. Always an issue. Add some tomatoes and pasta and you have a dining experience waiting to happen.

    I bought the Monistat again.

    Dear cat: Don\’t disturb blinds when I\’m watching porn

    Dear cat,

    Mrs grossman is away for three weeks, and though I am a person of strong will, three weeks is simply too long to bear without working one out. I don’t expect you to understand this need as you no longer have your ovaries, but trust me when I say, I NEED to.

    If you ever took the CAT SATs, you might have seen this example analogy:

    Getting off : me :: licking your ass : you.

    Having established that, I request of you: Please do not disturb the fucking blinds when I\’m watching porn!

    You’re a cat, not a dog, so don’t give me that puppy-eyed look. You know what you’re doing. As soon as I settle back in my chair with some hot chick doing all the things that my Mrs Grossman won’t, full-screen, you awaken from a dead sleep and run through the floor-to-ceiling blinds. I often shriek and my hard phallus, brilliantly backlit by the glow of the monitor, falls limp like a rhubarb stalk at the bottom of a Safeway bin. This wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t have an entire row of apartments whose living room windows directly face me. For the love of my erection and reputation, or my love of my erection and reputation, keep on sleeping when I’m a’ jerkin.

    I should have gotten a ferret.

    Now Froggy just jumped off the deep end. As I remember, I emailed GBS and told him where we were. I have the receipt of where we ate and the parking stub paid. Sucks to be you Froggy!

    Froggy, you little punk – Use your first name. Carl demands it! Are you a chickenshit? Yes you are.

    Uh, christmasghost?

    Considering that you’re complementing the humor of one of your wingnut buddies that is not attacking a poster, but the wife of a poster, are you sure you really want to sign on with that crowd?

    Moreover, he doesn’t even have the originality to write his own material.

    Yes, we have some left wing posters that do the same sort of thing, but we try not to encourage them. Of course, if you feel that it is appropriate to insult the wife of a poster in this manner, then I have seriously overestimated you.

    Oh, and for the record. I do not believe said poster is either you or puddy. I’ve had my differences with both of you, and puddy is rude, crude and socially unacceptable, but both of you (even puddy!) have more class than that worthless coward liar.

    I doubt that the worthless coward liar will apologize to Mrs. Grossman, but you should consider whether you owe her an apology.

    Oh, and as for “rightequalsstupid” who seems to feel a need to make similar comments about the right winger’s wives (although at least he writes his own material, crass as it is), well, you might note that he and I don’t get along on any number of topics. He seems to hate Christians, Jews, Muslims, all Republicans, most Democrats, Independents and anyone else that disagrees with anything (no matter how insignificant) he says.

    Yes, we lefties have our problem children too.

    Mrs Carl Grossman spews:

    You lefty prigs certainly have a problem with HUMOR, don\’t you?

    Tell us goody-goody, holier-than-thou, hollow and sanctimonious, unctious and ever so poreachy johnny, have you ever repeated a joke or funny story? forwarded a funny email or article?

    You dear are the definitive asshole.

    My Left Foot spews:

    No problem with humor. The problem with your posts is that they, quite simply, are not funny.

    When you are funny at my expense, I will be like puddy and acknowledge such.

    Your attempt at humor at my wifes expense, was, well, low class, rude, crude and ignorant. You don’t even have the stones to identify yourself.

    christmasghost, I agree with JB.

    spews:

    OH JOHN!!! come on….can you honestly say that you read that and didn’t laugh out loud?
    for cryin’ out loud…what is wrong with you?
    of course i don’t condone some of the things people say on here.but that doesn’t mean that sometimes they aren’t just funny as hell. what? you have to agree with someone’s politics for something funny to be funny? have you heard the expression that even a broken clock is right twice a day?
    when you get your knickers in a knot over what the average lefty says DAILY on here…you can start with the lectures…until then….NO.
    and by the way…how do you even know he has a wife? do you actually think that just because one of these tools says something…it’s REAL?
    here’s a clue for you, RIGHTEQUALSSTUPID is GOLDY….. jeez, where have you been?
    john ….you seem like a nice guy, naive as hell, but very nice. maybe those two things go together. when you said “are you sure you really want to sign on with that crowd?”
    it just made me sad. really. i don’t “sign on” with any crowd, just because i think they are funny. no one does…except for mindless drones, and i leave that for the far left and the far right.
    and as a woman i think yeast infection humor is very very funny. if we didn’t laugh about it john we would be really miserable………
    and carl…come on! you too?
    where is your sense of humor? are you saying that you MUST be marching in lock step with someone to find anything they say amusing? you and i must be very different then. i don’t agree with most of the things you say but i often find them very very amusing indeed.
    come on!!!….barry manilow?

    spews:

    and carl…..like YOU [of all people] have never made any nasty comments about a conservative’s family or personal lives???? geez…….would you like me to compile a little list for you????
    gawd…….in meetings for one day and the whiners come out of the woodwork.
    have any of you “that’s not nice” guys ever read anything ON THIS BLOG???? especially the things you are writing yourselves? glass houses ring any bells for you at all??????

    spews:

    Big difference in attacking me than going after my wife. I post here, I can take it. The objection is not the humor, the objection is the intended target.

    Also, I would be a fool to believe anything the wingnut “tools” write here, correct?

    So, using your standard, you are not a woman, you have no kids and you formerly posted here as howcanyoubeproudtobeanass.

    Two way street, sister.

    Mrs Carl Grossman spews:

    Poor little Carl just hates it when I make fun of him in public… he prefers it confined to our bedroom.

    He doesn\’t actually mind that I mock him, just that othere know I mock him.

    Sorry, baby. No nookie tonite…itchy scratchy twat rot still goin on.

    Not making fun of anyone. Just making a perfect ass of yourself.

    MLF is correct…..

    Sucks to be you.

    spews:

    carl…how is someone making fun of your wife????
    did i miss something? did you talk about your wife having a yeast infection on here? [and if so…why in the hell would you?]
    “Big difference in attacking me than going after my wife. I post here, I can take it. The objection is not the humor, the objection is the intended target.

    sure it is carl….BUT, having said that don’t you grade certain posters as to how much you can believe them and what they are saying? i have always been honest and i don’t throw knives at people’s families ,do i? the funny quote that i laughed about was about kryptonite and barry manilow…not about your wife.
    unless you are so twisted that you are married to barry manilow and he’s trying to use kryptonite to cure HIS yeast infection. in that case please accept my apologies.
    now….do you see just how stupid you sound?
    and GOLDY AKA “we know a jerk when we see one” [obviously not]can’t you of all people come up with more clever names. you sit watching your blog like an old spider and yet this is all you can come up with? come on….you are much funnier than that………
    and carl…one last thing.
    stop talking FOR your wife you sexist bastard. you are talking about her like she is some brainless moron that can’t: A. take a joke or B. can’t think for herself.
    i’m guessing that she can.
    let me guess…you are one of those MEN that stand around holding a pro-choice sign, right? i’ll bet you speak for black people too.
    white, jewish, and elite…and you just know better, don’t you?

    spews:

    I don’t hold signs. I don’t speak for others.

    His comments are stolen jokes. He personalized them.

    Read your post. You are telling me how I should think. By the way, Teresa was forwarded the original jokes, sans the personalization….. she laughed and forwarded to her friends.

  94. 122

    spews:

    and may i assume that “teresa” is your wife?
    okay…so she laughed at them. right-o. so you are mad…why?
    “stolen jokes”…..ARE YOU SERIOUS?
    first of all….jokes are meant to be passed around.second of all….once again, have you actually READ ANYTHING ON THIS BLOG???
    other than me and a couple of others…there hasn’t been an original thought presented on here EVER. this is plagiariser- central, honey.
    stolen jokes…oh my god. you are too funny. it would be even better if you were actually trying to be……..

  95. 123

    spews:

    and carl…when you get busted talking FOR your wife like she is a mindless drone…at least have the guts to admit it, okay?
    no one is trying to tell you how to think….i am telling you that a man ‘thinking’ he needs to speak for the “little woman” is a load of crap.what is this? 1950?
    yup…you are one of those self rightous bastards with the signs……
    well, at least you came out of the elitist closet. you didn’t mean to …but, POP there you were…….
