About Me

My namesake... http://youtu.be/GgXzWhexJh0 ... If I were asked to recommend only one political / history book it would be this one... http://www.amazon.com/Treason-America-Anton-Chaitkin/dp/0943235006 ... Treason in America: from Aaron Burr to Averell Harriman, by Anton Chaitkin. I do NOT endorse all of the views by Chaitkin external to this book, nor all of his actions, nor all of his associations, but I DO highly recommend this book. It is one every US citizen and everyone interested in its history should read. It it well written, meticulously sourced, and it is eye-opening -- even for those who consider themselves already knowledgeable. If you have not read it before, you need to read it, it is need-to-know information, and what it has to say is not going to be found in many places, if anywhere, else. That is my tip for whoever is passing by.

11 hides, 49 star members ignoring, and 52 blocking mail, yep that's a paragon of virtue.


But then, considering the tactics which are beloved by this faction, it really isn't surprising that someone like that would be the "rock star of the week". Good choice, well done.

But um, I do find it odd that a MAN was singled out for such glory and adulation. What, no woman could fit the bill? Guess not.

And... the cute graphic is clearly intended to be heartwarming, but what strikes me immediately is the lack of any noticeable hands of color. It looks like white people congratulating themselves.

Good job! I give this thread a perfect "10".

Lol, thank you Coke Machine!

And of course, jurors. That's some funny stuff right there. I don't do this often but I must...

"Nevermind, I'll find someone like you... "

45 years, and never did. Came close, once though.

Just curious... was there an alert on the picture itself

that this post is referring to? (post #6) Did anyone alert on that? And does anyone have the jury results on it? I'm assuming that it was juried and left to stand?


If nobody alerted on it, why not? Why would a crude comment about a crude pic be more worthy of outrage than the pic itself?

Always one of my faves, thanks for posting it!

That song made P&G stars. (I thought Gordon was a cutie, too -- I was 14 then.)

Another McCartney song done by another artist, a big hit although it didn't go to #1 I don't think, was this one by the Everly Brothers in 1982... "Wings of a Nightingale", up there on my list of faves too...

"Only one thing I did wrong, stayed in Mississippi a day too long..."

Well my shipís been split to splinters and itís sinkin' fast
Iím drowniní in the poison, got no future, got no past
But my heart is not weary, itís light and itís free
Iíve got nothiní but affection for all those whoíve sailed with me

"What About Love?" by Heart

For those who prefer blues over rock...

Happy Valentine's Day! And especially to those kind folks who gave me hearts

Thank you!

I (and others of course) have been arguing against the double standard which is rampant here since last year at this time -- the "do as I say, while I do as I please" crowd, which dominates Meta, and thereby indirectly, the whole board.

You're exactly right, the alert system is the designated way to deal with any problems that come up. Call outs and the piling on which that facillitates, are really not even for the purpose of dealing with anything, because Admins make up their own minds on PPRs.

The call outs of the specific-by-name piling-on variety are purely and simply character assassination parties, usually based on a trumped up false charge from the git-go, designed to gin up emotion to get people to turn against given posters, or to drive them away, or shut them up by making it not worth the aggravation to post anymore. I call that TROLLING, according to the commonly known definition of it. Ironic, isn't it?

The troll-hunters use trolling to supposedly smoke out the trolls. Bull pucky. The Emperor isn't wearing any clothes.

Here were go again with the cheesy innuendos.

Really? In this, of all threads? Why don't you and Sid (and whoever) write up your concerns and send them to Admin? I, for one, am tired of watching this death-by-mockery b.s. go down. If you know something, then make your case -- to TPTB, not here.

Otherwise I guess I and those of us who don't like it will have no choice but to start alerting on this stuff, and see what happens? I'd prefer not to go that far, but whatever. It is rude, ok? And abusive. Does that matter?
