  1. Why can't I post any comments?

    • I see your comment

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

        • You meant to say newbie

          • He can't spell

          • And you can't add to the debate.

            I'd rather have my issues.

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

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

          • 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?

          • 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.

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

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

          • 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.

          • Once more you used personal attacks and avoided content.

            You are pathetic.

          • Alinsky Hero USA

            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."

          • 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….

          • 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.

          • 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?

          • and he got a spanking like you

          • 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.

          • 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.

          • 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.

          • He called that a great comment?

          • Have you explained why it was wrong?

          • Yes, he did.

            He claims to be an authority on everything.

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

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

            Is that so hard to understand?

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

          • 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.

      • 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.

        • Having a real profile might help you avoid that.

          • 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?

          • 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.

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

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

          • The last thing anyone needs is on line stalkers.

          • 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.

          • 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.

          • Then you will leave me choice but to sue you.

          • Alinsky has the contact information for my legal representation.

          • Alinsky Hero USA

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

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

          • You are consistent.

          • 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.

          • 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.

          • 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?

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

          • Derp.

          • It's all you can manage, I know.

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

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

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

          • 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.

          • 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.

          • You are a coward, a troll, a stalker

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

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

          • Wow, the stalker guest troll is still at it.

            What a coward.

          • How about "cover up my actions"?

          • How about you find a bridge to hide under?

          • 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

          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. 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.

    • You're a paid hack troll

      • They're getting ripped off.

      • a paid mole that needs another spanking

        • 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.

      • 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.

        "I'm like jesus, I'm gonna chase you money changers out of the temple and out of town and of course out of this forum. Me and ohsoquiet and a few other REAL AMERICANS who are being PAID to be here like you Israeli PR men. I'm here to chase you filth out."

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

  3. $15.00 for MW is way too much

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

      • Alinsky Hero USA

        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.

        • 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?

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

  5. 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.

    • 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.

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

      • Alinsky Hero USA

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

        • 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.

          • 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.

          • 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.
