How does anyone vote for a sleaze like the Cooch? McAuliffe isn’t a gem, but he won’t be insanely anti-abortion.
RepackRider commented on the diary post Boston’s Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers Help Heal the Hub by solartopia.
As a non-shaver myself I was rooting heavily for the Beards. A note on the derivation of the term Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. The late David Sheridan , the artist who created the original Furry Freak Brothers characters for Rip_off Press comics, lived in my town. Many of the characters and locations in the comix were easily [...]

I was a participant in The Next Right, which is now logging fewer visits than my own, static website. I’m so liberal that I would have been prosecuted in the ‘fifties. I am also an Army vet (E-5, Honorable Discharge, ETS 15-FEB-1968). You can look up my posts on your old site under the same handle. I tried to represent without trolling.
That said, I found the same hysteria on your site that led us to say,
Sarah Palin being taken seriously.
Seriously. Sarah Palin? And the Pizza guy? Bachmann? I’m glad you’re here to explain these mystifying political phenomena to us.
Hopefully you will find that we deal with ideas on their merits, not on their origin.
My service in a military medical capacity has convinced me that we should be offering similar tax-paid medical services to any person who walks into any medical facility in the country. Doing so would save billions of dollars and put the insurance company death panels out of business. You probably don’t have any experience with military medicine, which is designed around large-scale treatment and multiple traumas.
The only people who say government can’t work are those with a stake in not making it work. The only people who want wars are those who don’t fight them. I would rather take my chances with Al Qaeda than allow my own government to monitor every thought I care to communicate.
Tell me where I’m wrong.

Just called Feinstein’s office and expressed my displeasure with her attempt to limit First Amendment rights by allowing the government to decide who is “press.”
The only people who would oppose MORE transparency are those with something to hide.
RepackRider commented on the diary post Restore the Fourth at “NSA Oversight” Rep Mike Thompson’s office by davidl.
Called that very office today. The staffer I spoke to was interested to hear that the event had been posted on the Internet, and he asked me to spell firedoglake for him.
It was actually a reasonable and polite discussion, even though I was geared for confrontation.

I coulda been a pretender.
RepackRider commented on the blog post Judge Rules that NYC’s Stop-and-Frisk Policy Violates 4th and 14th Amendments
“…(V)iolates the 4th and 14th Amendments…”
At the risk of sounding like, “No, DUH!”
No, DUH! What was the first clue?

He would be well served by a session at Regular Guy Camp.
But back to the subject, can anyone imagine a Black artist performing in FLA? Wait until that spreads to NFL players. This could be the boycott that makes an impact.
if you’re laying on your back getting hit in the head, there’s no “stand your anything”.
If only Trayvon had been armed, he would not have been lying on his back getting beaten, and then shot.
I hope all young Black men in Florida start packing hog leg pistols openly in leg holsters strapped for a quick draw.

It’s definitely good news for Orville Redenbacher.
Lot of venom in the comments below the McCain article.
Or, as I call it, ambrosia.

Anything she doesn’t like is all right with me.

If a vague threat doesn’t do the trick the next threat will be EVEN MORE VAGUE. The vagueness will escalate until a resolution is reached.

You made me click the Mormon butt sex link. I thought it would be a theology discussion.
I had a pig Ford. It was an Econoline. I threw a party when it died.
RepackRider commented on the blog post Three Reasons Alaska Might be a Surprisingly Good Target for Marijuana Legalization
Let me add another reason.
Safe to say that some prayers were answered, but not tim’s.
Tim Tebow was released by the Jets.
Somebody’s prayers were answered.
When responding to moronicity of this degree, the question, “What could possibly go wrong?” is hardly sufficient. The question is, “What could possibly go right?”
