Is it the stuff that causes so many of his detractors to stumble all over themselves, sputtering through their lefty-liberal conceits while putting up links to articles with updates they evidently don't bother reading - updates that cast doubt on their own dubious arguments?

Where can I pick up a pack of this Blaska Effect?
Better yet - a case.


Yes, Meade, the Blaska Effect is brewed fresh every day right here in Dane County at Blaska Stately Manor. Pick up the family-pack at the convenient drive-thru window here. We're also building an above-ground pipeline direct to Monroe, and Willy and W. Johnson Streets. Guaranteed to give all of Madison's Jeremies a case of the heeby-jeebies!

Meade & Blaska give new meaning to the phrase "circle jerk." Get a room, guys!

Holy cow! I've been enjoying that stuff for almost three years now and didn't even realize what it was.

Here I thought I was quaffing St. Bernardus Pater 6!

Amazingly, the Blaska Effect, lacking any substantial content, still leaves you dizzy and staggering, slurring words searching for a way out of the corner it's backed you into.

Yes, it does have that effect on liberals, jonny go. I recommend you up your dosage.

In 1968 when I was 14, I began to realize that the former peace candidate, Lyndon B Johnson, was (and is) the most evil president in U.S. history.
In 1969 I dedicated myself to paying any price, bearing any burden, meeting any hardship, supporting any friend, and opposing any foe, in order to assure the survival and success of liberty and to end the draft.
In 1972, I was waiting to be convicted and sentenced to prison for 5 years for intentionally breaking Selective Service law.
On April 30, 1975, I was weeping in shame for my country and bracing for the coming genocide that ended up murdering more than 2 million Cambodians.
Thank you for your service, Henry Vilas, or whatever your real name is, and I hope that answers your questions.


Took ya long enough, Meade, but thanks for the answer. Now wipe the Blaska Effect off your chin and get back to the important work of drawing and enunciating bizarre conclusions.

Well we were protesting together and the riot cops came at us and we linked arms and sat down peacefully to protest their presence on our campus. And then at one point they were – we had encircled them and they were trying to leave and they were trying to clear a path. And so we sat down, linked arms and said that if they wanted to clear the path they would have to go through us.

Sounds like the protesters threatened the police: "[...]we sat down, linked arms and said that if they wanted to clear the path they would have to go through us."

Only if you find passive resistence threatening. I bet you would have found Gandhi and MLK threatening too.

Gandhi and MLK encircled police, blocked their egress, and told them - if you want to leave, you have to go through us?

You and I have different memories of those events, Henry V.

Why do you think King had his arms interlocked with his fellow marchers? No quibbles, please.

No quibbles here. Clearly you win, Henry V. That photo shows MLK and his followers encircling, blocking, and daring the cops to go through them if the cops want to get to wherever the cops are trying to get to.
