    Why can't I post any comments?

    • TheNewsMadd says:

      I see your comment

      • Roger says:

        He is a newby, his comment may have needed approval to show.

        • patriothere says:

          You meant to say newbie

          • jerk says:

            He can't spell

          • Roger says:

            And you can't add to the debate.

            I'd rather have my issues.

          • jerk says:

            It's spanking time. Go over to the growl, they just spanked HPD big time.

          • Guest says:

            Yes, they did. Saw right through him, and spanked him red. Folks have longer memories than these clowns seem to think.

          • Roger says:

            Tears of the sun posted a great comment only to have people of your low caliper attack him. You trolls are consistent.

            Were you afraid real discussion might break out?

          • Troll Alert says:

            For an accomplished, published author, you certainly do not have a solid grasp of the Kings English, or how to use it, do you?

            "only to have people of your low caliper attack him.

            The proper word, would be caliber.

            A caliper is a drawing instrument, or a disc brake mechanism for an mechanical vehicle.

          • Roger says:

            And once more you have no grasp of how to contribute.

            Personal attacks are so troll. No wonder you use them constantly.

          • Troll Alert says:

            I responded specifically to your comment and merely pointed out that you had no grasp of the English Language, which you so conveniently ignored.

            Apparently, the only words that you can spell are Twista Persi Trools and effanol.

            You are hilarious.

          • Roger says:

            Once more you used personal attacks and avoided content.

            You are pathetic.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            You should have seen all the errors the folks on the Belfast site found when they went through the first 20 pages of his book.

            He even had to admit they were right.

            "Her eyes went out the window."

          • Roger says:

            It was on the first page, and that's not the exact quote.

            But yes, I honestly admitted that while it was easily understood there was a more grammatically correct way of saying it.

            I wonder if Rosie would want to proof read the sequel?

            Oh well, that's not a discussion for this site. They focus on political issues and current events here.

            Hint… hint….

          • Yahoo_Yaboey says:

            Perhaps RosieRoop could measure your literary progress with a set of calipers, but I'm sure the advancement was so miniscule she would need a set of micrometers. You really are of low caliber.

          • Roger says:

            And yet you can't keep up.

            Can't you try, just to try to pretend you want to add to the debate on the issues here?

          • jerk says:

            and he got a spanking like you

          • Roger says:

            He had trolls attack him personally when he posted a great comment that nobody disagreed with.

            That's a feeding frenzy that accomplishes nothing. Well, it does give the immature trolls a chance to expose who they are.

            And why does the troll patrol come running to this site with garbage from other places? This site has stories and issues they want to discuss, Zebrano isn't one of them.

          • Troll Alert says:

            A great comment?

            Have you lost your mind?

            Warren could say "the sun will rise at daybreak" or "there wil be Church on Sunday" and you would think it was a great comment.

            You have licked his boots (or something) since day one.

            You are pathetic.

            In my opinion.

          • Roger says:

            Then why don't you go to the growl, where discussion of the growl belongs and explain why you don't agree with his comment.

          • TheNewsMadd says:

            He called that a great comment?

          • Roger says:

            Have you explained why it was wrong?

          • Troll Alert says:

            Yes, he did.

            He claims to be an authority on everything.

          • TheNewsMadd says:

            I know and if you challenge him he will stalk and sue you

          • Roger says:

            Or you could actually explain what was wrong with the comment you keep attacking.

            Is that so hard to understand?

          • TheNewsMadd says:

            What he said was the truth but to call that comment great when everyone knows the sun comes up in the morning is idiotic

          • Roger says:

            Then go to the growl and explain why that comment was wrong.

            Unless you can't.

            Then all this is academic because it indicates you're trolling.

      • NewPerson says:

        It is hard getting interested in posting on this site, if half my comments say it is awaiting moderation by an administrator, and the other half simply don't show up. This isn't any way to run a railroad.

        • Roger says:

          Having a real profile might help you avoid that.

          • NewPerson says:

            But what good end would it accomplish?
            Would I get a prize for my points or number of posts, or would I have people following me around, like tainted offal?

          • Roger says:

            You asked a question, I gave an answer. Don't blame me if you don't like the answer.

            What it accomplishes is that you may not face the strict moderation if you consistently offer quality comments on the topics the site provides.

            Of course that is my opinion based on previous experiences, the moderator here has the final say.

          • TheNewsMadd says:

            The only reason he is demanding you make an account is so he can stalk and sue you

          • NewPerson says:

            Thank you. The last thing a single girl needs, is an online stalker.

          • Roger says:

            The last thing anyone needs is on line stalkers.

          • NewPerson says:

            Then I'll thank you in advance for this to be your last post to me. I have been here for about a week, and have stayed out of the fray between all of you players. I like this website, but to tell you the truth, there is too much drama.

          • Roger says:

            And I'll explain in advance that I answer the comments that I choose to answer.

            It's an open forum and if you want to select the people allowed to respond to what you say, there are sites that have selective memberships. This isn't one of them.

          • NewPerson says:

            Then you will leave me choice but to sue you.

          • Roger says:

            Alinsky has the contact information for my legal representation.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            I can give you all his personal information. His address. his lawyer, etc.

            But good luck getting at all that "Double Take" money.

          • Roger says:

            You are consistent.

          • NewPerson says:

            Mr. Alinskey, perhaps this Roger person could join forces with the Warren person; the man with One Hundred Names. Together, they could file a Class Action Suit against everyone who ever used the Internet. This is beyond ridiculous.

            Weasel Zippers uses the tagline Scouring the bowels of the Internet. This website is so far up the Poop Chute that it is beginning to smell like chitlings.

            I am out of here. I want no part of this nonsense.

          • Roger says:

            New, perhaps you're not new and perhaps you're just posing and pretending?

            I'm glad you're gone but to go to another site I post at so you can pretend outrage that I'm there too, it smacks of hypocrisy.

          • TheNewsMadd says:

            I have the information as well. Once all these sites admins know he is out suing people posting on thier sites they will ban him. I mean who wants a somone on theri site who is suing the posters?

          • Roger says:

            Of course you do. And the site admins know your past too.

          • Troll Alert says:

            Derp.

          • Roger says:

            It's all you can manage, I know.

            Have another dog biscuit and play with the other trolls under the bridge.

          • TheNewsMadd says:

            roger is an online stalker. THis is a great site he is the only problem

          • Roger says:

            Wee, you really need to check your legal definition of 'stalker'.

          • whoknowsu says:

            Well after 3 weeks of absence I have to brush on the latest.
            No wonder you are a stalker because you don't know what it is.
            It is simply someone going on your profile every day for years, you even don't know how to do it without being seen. That shows your expertise in computers. Then you go to their comments and yap.
            Well I see you got a spanking, HPD did too, that is hilarious.
            You keep going to sites that ignore you, what a travesty!
            Are you still in the puberty stage? Did you finish high school, I don't think so, you don't know how to spell.

          • Roger says:

            If I was a coward and trying to hide and cover my tracks I would sign out and visit profile, unseen. Yes, I know how.

            What I don't have is the need to cover my actions up.

          • blahblah says:

            You are a coward, a troll, a stalker

          • Roger says:

            Says the guest troll who stalked me to find this comment.

          • blahblah says:

            "Cover my actions up", is that vernacular again, no wonder your book is a failure.

          • Roger says:

            Wow, the stalker guest troll is still at it.

            What a coward.

          • blahblah says:

            How about "cover up my actions"?

          • Roger says:

            How about you find a bridge to hide under?

          • Roger says:

            Wee, actual debate on the topic, it's just too much for you, isn't it?

            I explained my answer, if you disagree that's fine.

            But why do you always depend on personal attacks over substance? Is that something you want to refer to your legal council perhaps?

        • Alinsky Hero USA says:

          You are probably using a flagged word.

          Try saying things like,…. You still can't offer serious debate, talk to my lawyer, goat sex, small little Wee thing, etc.

  2. Roger says:

    The story shows all sorts of biases.
    She was a portrayed as a successful candidate that ran and was elected on the $15 position.
    The libertarian was portrayed as a (well, most MSM consider the label 'libertarian' as a kook) extremist taking pot shots from a fold up table in the hall.

    All subtle things to be sure, but all there by design. And of course, it was about how everyone 'felt' and not facts or economic data. That's a liberal slant on a story.

    • patriothere says:

      You're a paid hack troll

      • Punk says:

        They're getting ripped off.

      • jerk says:

        a paid mole that needs another spanking

        • blahblah says:

          I resent using my name in vain, I am the jerk, the real jerk and the only one jerk.
          Got that jerk? LOL
          Roger is the idiot, the real idiot and the only one idiot.

      • Roger says:

        Why do you always think that your handlers can make sense just because you jump from one forum to another?

        You're an admitted paid hack troll sent to drive people away.

        If you're so lacking in control you blurt out things like that, don't expect to keep up with the adults here.

  3. TheNewsMadd says:

    $15.00 for MW is way too much

    • Roger says:

      It's not a minimum wage, they careful couch the terms into a 'living wage'.

      • Alinsky Hero USA says:

        Both great terms for 15 dollars an hour.

        Finally people are going to get paid a decent wage. And it will make America strong again.

        Thank you Obama.

        • Guest says:

          At fifteen bucks an hour, will Roger have a minimum number of posts that he has to write, or will it just be a flat fee of fifteen bucks, and Roger can write however many posts he wants to?

        • Roger says:

          Both great terms for business in decline and a smaller work force.

          You may have liked that in the USSR and other communist countries, but here a business owner should be able to run and hire on his terms, and the worker should have the freedom to accept or decline a job on his own terms.

          Can you show where your policies have actually worked and thrived for the masses?

  4. Mr. Liberty says:

    Good news! We actually blocked one of Barry's crappy nominees!!
    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/mar/5/se

    • Mr. Liberty says:

      "We" as in the SENATE

      • Alinsky Hero USA says:

        Wow. I think that's only makes 83 times the conservative obstructionists have hurt our country by blocking an Obama nominee.

        They sure hate when a black guy appoints a judge.

        • Mr. Liberty says:

          "Mr. McConnell said Mr. Adegbile had a long history of “left-wing advocacy” that would politicize the civil rights division. He said the nominee argued that it was “radical” to think the Second Amendment guaranteed an individual’s right to bear arms and opposed voter identification requirements."

          Hmm maybe the senators are realizing that their false flags about gun violence and non stop anti-gun rhetoric is not what the American people want to hear. Maybe they are realizing they better shut up or loose their coveted (non term limit) jobs.

        • Jamal says:

          "They sure hate when a black guy appoints a judge."

          I watched the hearings yesterday. I sure hated the way that old coon Elijah Cummings behaved.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            That was an historical moment, and the end of Issa's pathetic career as an un-American tyrant.

            Cummings HERO!!!!

          • Roger says:

            No, just a badly mannered person trying to distract from Lois and her 5th cop outs.

          • Mr. Liberty says:

            Agreed. That was the real disgrace is Lerner using the 5th when the IRS doesn’t let average citizens like us use the 5th in a audit or on our tax returns. What a bunch of crap. Answer the damn questions, it only makes her look guilty when she CANNOT answer anything!! Just like Holder during Fast and Furious, "Umm I don't know…Uh I can't answer that…Once again I do not have an answer to that question…"

            What a bunch of crap.

          • Mr. Liberty says:

            Or I should say Lerner WILL NOT instead of CANNOT answer questions lol. Even worse.

          • Roger says:

            Exactly!

            Nixon was taken down for far, far less than this White House's capers.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            She has agreed to answer questions. Just not in front of Issa'a bias witch hunt tactics.

            Issa "shut it down" because he is scared and knows he is being made a fool of with this silly smear campaign.

            And the racist conservatives are eating it up.

          • Roger says:

            She pled the 5th.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            You can read all about how she agreed to answer all the questions away from Issa's witch hunt.

            Go to google.com

          • Roger says:

            When congress subpoenas a witness they don't 'get to decide that.
            Issa is the checks and balances to stop abuses, and she pled the 5th and refused to follow the constitutional guidelines for the reason the legislature is seated.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            Yes, they can decide that. And she did.

            Google is not your friend.

          • Roger says:

            She tried, if Issa does his job she can be held in contempt of Congress.
            That would be if they do their job.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            Issa will be impeached soon anyway.

          • Roger says:

            So, you realize I was right and had no comeback.

            She's the issue, that and the corruption in this administration.

          • Jamal says:

            It was nothing but a Coon-Fest.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            Your friend likes saying racist remarks Roger.

          • Jamal says:

            Lets me axe you a question.
            Why is that a racist remark?

            It was nothing but Elijah Cummings Chimping Out. It was a Coon-Fest.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            Do you deny being High Plains Drifter?

            Roger defends you all day, but is embarrassed by your racist comments.

            So he is avoiding "Jamal" all together.

          • Jamal says:

            Nossah, I cain'ts denies dat.
            But I cain'ts deniez being dat Roger man eider.
            Sometimez, I drinks too much o' dat Colt 45, and types things I shudent.

            Da Colt 45 be bad enuff, but youz best clear away frum me when I getz on the Thunderbirdz.

            LawdyMercy, things getz to a shakin and movin.!

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            Cool. That's all I needed to know.

            Thanks.

          • Roger says:

            What you need to know you post under guest profiles then pretend it's fact.

            Trolls, you are so predictable.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            Your friend is racist, and you defend him.

          • Roger says:

            I do not defend racism. And it was a guest profile, for all I know, it could be you posting it.

          • Mr. Liberty says:

            Come on dude. I don't like Cummings either but you cannot use that type of language, all you are viewed as is a racist. Which you probably are, which sucks because it makes people like me, who have real criticisms of Cummings, look bad.

          • Jamal says:

            Ok. Youse be right. Ill behaves myself from now on and sticks to da topix and just axe good questions.

          • Mr. Liberty says:

            You think its funny that people talk like that? I think its sad, education in black communities is atrocious. This must be fixed. We all have different ideas on how to accomplish this but nonetheless no one disputes the fact.

          • Jamal says:

            Nossah.
            I don thinks dat be funny.
            Dats jes how Iz be talkin'

          • TheNewsMadd says:

            Knock it off roger

          • Roger says:

            Why do you lie so much?

            Is it just what you and your posse do?

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            Jamal isn't a typical conservative. He is honest about his racism.

          • Guest says:

            Alinsky, I think that was Roger. Trying to distract, and deflect attention. He is a master at subversion.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            I'm sure it was High Plains Drifter.

          • Guest says:

            On second thought, I believe you are right. I hadn't seen HPD for months, then just when he shows up at the Growl, this nonsense shows up over here. He probably just trolled on over with Roger.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            Notice Roger stayed clear of Jamals racist comments?. Roger knows it was his friend.

          • Guest says:

            I did not notice that, but you are absolutely right. He stayed clear of those comments. Probably something they put together on the back channel or the IM.

          • Roger says:

            The moderator know who posts.

            Even if you lie about it and have a pretend conversation to cloud the stuff you make up.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            Roger's friend High Plains Drifter made those racist comments.

            High Plains Drifter is Roger;s friend, and Roger defends all his comments.

          • Roger says:

            Then talk to him about it.
            I'm not him.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            It doesn't surprise me you defend racist HPD. He and racist Kevin are your only friends.

          • Roger says:

            Why do you have such a small arsenal of tactics?

            Insults, smears, attacks.

            Don't you ever come here to discuss issues and events?
            That's why everyone else is here and why you're just a troll trying to get into the way.

            Racist is when skin color matters more than the man inside it. You bring it up, your guest trolls do, but I don't much care about it.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            You ignore when your friend makes racist remarks.

            That's how desperate you are for friends.

            Your lawyer will be hearing about your racism.

            It's a guest profile, it could be you posting it for all I know.

            I do not condone racism.
            And I also noticed you ignored everything I said to stick to your flawed conclusion.

            Trolls are so predictable.

          • Guest says:

            I see he was using a variation of your alias at the Growl last night.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            Let me guess Alinsky Zero.

          • Guest says:

            Yep. But he was using your name, and his avitar.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            Cleaver.

          • Guest says:

            You lost me on that one.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            I meant ……clever.

          • Guest says:

            Yeah. He is the clever one all right. He takes the stickers off of his Rubik's Cube, and fixes them so he can win.

          • Roger says:

            And you sit chewing on yours, gumming it like the angry child you sound like.

          • Guest says:

            I sometimes read that Growl site, but I can't post there. They must have me blocked. I don't know why. I have never posted there, although I have tried repeatedly. I think there are what, maybe two or three people that are regulars there? Take those two or three, and the two or three that post at navy's site, and get them all together, and you might have enough people for a decent card game. They could sit Roger in the corner, and he could shoot dice with himself.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            That site is all screwed up. It takes forever to load, and is no longer maintained.

            They keep it open because it's the closest thing Roger has to calling a home.

          • Guest says:

            Home is where the heart is…….

          • NameWithheld says:

            Isn't the Growl site where that Suzie gal offered Roger a low paying busy-work job?

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            I doubt she offered him money, but yes.

          • Roger says:

            If you want to discuss the growl, why not do it at the growl?

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            I only discuss storyleak on the growl.

          • Roger says:

            Too bad you don't just discuss troll things under your bridge.

          • Roger says:

            If you want to insult the growl, why do it here?

            Other sites aren't why this one is here.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            I heard Suzie has already dropped you like a ton of virgins.

          • Trollinator says:

            THUD!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Roger says:

            You need to quit listening to flawed sources.

            And why would I discuss anything with you?

          • Mr. Liberty says:

            Inappropriate comment Jamal.

            Cummings is a race baiter though, that is for sure. Don't stoop to his level.

          • Alinsky Hero USA says:

            The only race baiting being done here is by you and Jamal.

          • Roger says:

            So, are you running the guest profile jamal to hide your part in the thread?

          • Lekeeshia says:

            I think it pretty racist of you Roger to start picking on Jamal. Typical. Anything to put a Brother down.

          • Roger says:

            I think it's pretty troll of you to pretend I did any such thing.

  5. NotSoFast says:

    Jamal above, although babbling incoherently, might have had a valid point about Elijah Cummings behavior. I see the entire Congressional Black Caucus is lining up, and have written a letter to John Boner, demanding that he remove Chairman Issah from his Chairmanship.

    This is all obfuscation. Create an issue. Any issue, to take the focus off of Lois Lehrner and the IRS.

    It is a smokescreen.

    • NotSoFast says:

      This comment was at the bottom of the thread. Somehow, it got bumped up, Taken out of context, it will make no sense. It should be read, at the bottom of Mr. Liberty's thread.

    • Mr. Liberty says:

      Well said! It is one of the favorite tactics of the globalists. Race baiting.

      • Alinsky Hero USA says:

        Actually, race baiting is a tactic of anti-globalists.

        • Roger says:

          Not really. Not actually, just in your rhetoric.

          The capitalist system is race blind, they don't care who or what is the ethnic background of anyone. When I guy a car I don't care what skin color was on the person who built it, when I contract for services I care about qualifications and price, nothing more.

          • SUA says:

            Dumbass, it is possible to be a racist capitalist. In fact, it has been all too common in our history.

            Personally I don't care if you're racist or not. Your lack of other redeeming qualities makes it immaterial.

          • Roger says:

            When you to to a store to buy a ball point pen, do you care who built it?

            How can you even find out?

            Personally I think you're just another troll guest profile here to do anything but discuss issues seriously.
