Good question. I find it interesting that Vice got chucked into the above rant. Kind of an obscure publication to bother RW agitators on THIS forum. It must suck to operate in such a target POOR environment. Such a sad waste of effort; if jfdh is agitating for something he/she "believes" to be true.

Holy shit, the first post in this thread is a paragon, a fucking masterpiece of banality. Absolutely breathtaking in its vacuity. It is discourse's equivalent of slapstick humor. I'll be completely honest, John Henry, I wish I had internet points to give you. When you wrote, with what I am guessing is complete earnestness, this:

I came closer to actually, literally pissing myself laughing than I have in my entire life. This is because that sentence is, without a doubt, the single stupidest thing ever uttered in the English language. Or any other language, for that matter. No single combination of words/grunts/clicks/screams/squawks to ever pass the lips of any of the estimated 50 billion human beings in the earth's history approach the singular level of nonsense that you just achieved.

There are going to be scholars in 2213 studying the decline of American intellectualism of the early 21st century, and dozens of them will make entire careers out of the nine words above.

You know what, JH? You should be taking all of this as a compliment. I sit here in awe of what you've accomplished. I have the same feeling as the first time I heard Charles Mingus, or saw Citizen Kane. I have that feeling that, for just a moment, I saw a shooting star illuminating the night sky. It passes millions of miles above us, as we mere mortals stand here, earthbound. The wonder I feel is only matched by the sadness I have, knowing that I will probably never hear or read anything of this caliber again:

It's Haley's comet. It's James Brown. It's Woodstock. It is a once-in-a-lifetime moment, and I can only sit here, amazed, elated, to have been even a tiny part of such an occurrence.

I tried to play along, and all I could come up with was a lame Hitler reference. And JH comes through! he replies, staying in character:
You'll have to ask NBC News that question. It's their story, not mine

He is the master.

So's nutria:

Or at least queen for a day. That was some good writing and the chances of anybody having an adequate follow-up are zilch, so here's where the topic ends.

OMFG. "John has an MBA in Industrial Management with a second concentration in Interpersonal relations."

I will resist the temptation to "review" John's book.

As Kenneth Blanchard says, 'Feedback is the breakfast of champions.' I am always hungry."

Cereal commas???

So whatever happened to the NoKo nuclear crisis? Remember how worried Obie and the media were for a while?

Anyone know what they did to make the problem go away?

I am sure that it is just a coincidence that about the time the movie "Olympus has fallen" finished its run in theaters, we stopped hearing about the crisis.

Is it out on DVD yet? If not, might we expect NoKo Nukes to rear their ugly heads again when it does come out?

This was so blatant that even crazy wingnut Matt Lauer noticed it on the Today show

(The relevant part starts about 35 seconds in)


Is Obie getting played? Again? By Hollywood?

The new Muppet movie comes out with the bad guys being Russians.

Russia gets all uppity with Ukraine, invading the Crimean pennisula.

Coincidence? I think not.

Just kidding. An interesting, if admittedly crackpot theory from Crackpot and Buzzkill, the No Agenda boys, at www.seanhannity.com
