I miss Laurence Meade

Postby pjbogart » Wed Feb 05, 2014 12:12 am

Frankly, the biggest problem with TDPF these days is that there's nothing worth arguing about. Guns and health care have been played out and the midterms are almost a year away. The resident right-wing trolls seem almost like caricatures and our liberal trolls are too busy playing Dark Souls... still! Great game. You have to pick up a copy.

Anyway, this forum needs a boneheaded moron to replace Laurence Meade. John Henry literally seems to reside on Jupiter and Rich just copies and pastes inane blather. Arguing with Sandi is like telling your dog that it's kind of dumb, which everyone realizes except for your dog. Flanders is just a shell of his former self, suffering either from early onset dementia or Obama Hatred Syndrome, which causes you to become such a blithering nitwit that you only make sense to other blithering nitwits.

Basically, we need to step up the stupid. Maybe some links on the Free Republic or Althouse might liven things up.

1. Be careful what you wish for.
2. I carefully agree.

The notion of relevant discussion of local issues and the best way to deal with them, criticism of the government without degenerating into "but that's one of YOUR little darling partisans so if you criticize her then your whole ideology is stupid!" flame wars, without stupid gifs, prioritizing problem solutions and realistic assessment of future issues just isn't appealing?

Were you drunk when you wrote that, or are you just a masochist?

I think it's seasonal. February is a dumb time of year all around.

Also, for now there's less to argue about because the Republicans are turning on one another and the rest of us, not really caring who wins, can just sit back and watch. Chris Christie is too easy of a target. Walker is boring to argue about because he's easy, too.

A time of torpor.

But if Laurence Meade gets back in here I am going on hiatus.

If you're looking for dumb stuff you could go to the Emerson East neighborhood meeting tonight and listen to why its a good idea to waive building codes so some homeless people can live in glorified ice shanties in the middle of a neighborhood.

That should sate your craving for dumbness this week.

Let's bring Blaska back! This is what I would imagine saying if I were really, really, drunk.

When you flame and troll him and others who disagree with you, WTF do you expect? Cordiality?

Because that's all Meade ever did was disagree. He never flamed or trolled anybody. Ever. All he did was disagree.

No matter what anybody said, he disagreed with it.
