Who's pissy? And how is questioning the choice of Vang Pao trolling?

I get a kick out of your self-righteous reactions when you learn that a person does not shop at the Wooly Street Co-op, play golf at Putt-Putt Fun Park or drive a Prius. You arenâ??t so much liberal as you are limited in your acceptance of all people . . . Nakoma or Vitense. Why don't you submit a plan for doing good with your money and not just the taxpayers money?

What is your problem with reality, Mr. T?

When I responded to your post...

Just a little slow are you? Twas Jason and not I that took the detour.


...I was responding to two things:

a.) Your gratuitous use of the twee anachronism 'Twas;'
b.) That you were simply and obviously speaking an untruth.

Your response...

You and the unmarvelless one have chosen a dialect as outdated as your political views.


...manages to once again baldly state an untruth; my choice was to respond to your anachronism in kind.

Normally I would call this lying, but I'm in a charitable mood; perhaps it's merely that all the goose shit and Roundup you've been inhaling on the links have started to tax your synapses into sub-optimal performance.

I mean, I assume that you'd rather be shown to be a moron than a liar. Although I concede that I could be wrong about this assumption.

Right. That makes all the sense in the world, and I appreciate your clearing it up for me. Is it safe to assume that when you order you point to menu items so the waiter doesn't have to try and figure out what the hell you are saying.

I am a little unclear, however on what it means when you refer to my "gratuitous use of the twee anachronism." Didn't know those could be used gratuitously. Please explain.

No - where I eat the waiters aren't morons, so I don't have to.

However, it is safe to assume that when some message board cretin, intoxicated from the fume of his own questionable 'wit,' tries to blow smoke up my ass I'll ask him to kindly kiss it instead.

And since you're clearly kind of slow, I'll make it real easy for you, Taxed:

Kiss my ass.

George is gettin' upset!

I shop at Woodman's, drive a Ford and would probably lighten your wallet playing $5 Nassaus at U. Ridge. But I'm not totally convinced you even play golf. You aren't so much a conservative as a cheeleader for establishment neo-cons.

I would make it my life's work to prove I am a conservative Democrat who can't abide neo-cons, but only if I gave a shit about your opinion of me or my posts. You aren't conviced I even play golf. Fine, bend over and give me one shot with my Big Bertha. Sorry about the Ford thing.

Forgot . . . you have never bent over for anyone to the right of left. And, lets make it my putter. You know, so there is no overkill.

Considering the nature of this tread don't you think you should share you thoughts on Pow Vang School?

[quote="Henry Vilas"]I wonder why UW history professor Alfred McCoy didn't testify before the school board. McCoy detailed Vang Paoâ??s role in the heroin trade in his 1991 book, â??The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade.â?Â

Time to choose a school mascot / athletic department name. What say you to the Vang Pao "War Lords?."

Vang Pao School

Postby madisonite » Fri Apr 27, 2007 4:43 pm

I feel the name should be voted by tax payers or the neighborhood people who are going to send the kids to that school - When students read the stories of Vang Pao (true story or written nonsense) they will always take the words WAR, HEROIN, COLDBLOOD and so on. ("Its easy to adopt wrong things than the nicer one"- concept)
