  2. If you want to understand why Republicans are likely to win back the Senate despite not really representing the economic interests of the middle class and most of the population......all you have to do is read the other by-line in this blog about the New York Times (the mouthpiece of the liberal elites) referring to thug and burglar Michael Brown as an "angel". Middle America is so sick and tired of these snarky East and Wesst Coast liberals and their endless contempt for them while they glorify all the (non-white) people who are destroying the country that they have decided it is time for payback, even if they hurt their own economic interests by doing so....

  3. LOL @ "....all the (non-white) people who are destroying the country...."


    May as well. The "(non-white)" Americans helped to build this country: Native American Indians, Blacks, Mexicans and Chinese. Yeah, let's tear the motha' down!

  4. If those ISIS (escaped souls from the place of ALL evil) terrorists behead a wonman on video, the world will go ballistic. They deserve whatever they will get to be sent back to the place of all evil for all time and you know what it takes to get sent back, the force of the good on the tip of a missle.

  5. Ummm RICK: that "liberal elitist mouthpiece" said he as NO angel. That kind of flies in the face of your "argument", or should I say your diatribe against the "non-white people who are destroying the country". Although it is refreshing to see you rail against something other than effeminate guys and transgendered people for a change. You really have been in a rut lately aiming your crazy rants at them exclusively, so it's good to see the meds have kicked in and have helped you spread your sunshine to other minority groups. You had the needle stuck in the groove for a while. You know, even the old bigot Archie Bunker evolved and became more tolerant of others over the years. Maybe you should catch a re-run and learn a little.

  6. SHUTTER ISLAND was good to read, The movie was a mess and disappointing. Making a series is much like that famous attempt to make silk purses out of hog's ears--or at least before irony was understood and people started taking Yoko Ono seriously as an artist.

  9. Huh, did not see Gregory Brown as an alias of Rick. But what do you know.

    Also, Rick saying something stupid, racist and unsubstantiated? It must be a Tuesday.

  10. GO KNEE DEFENDER!! As someone who travels frequently, there is NOTHING more rude than someone putting his or her seat back during a flight. I NEVER put my seat back. It ruins the flight for the person seated behind you and totally encroaches on his or her knee room. I am totally getting one.

  11. Is it too much for me to wish that Douglas McAuthur McCain was somehow related to John "Bomb 'Em All" McCain?

  12. Rick: You should learn to read, the NYT describes Michael Brown as no angel, wich is troublesome because no matter who he was, he didn't deserved to be shooted the way he was
