Let me just say I'm glad you're back, Tommy.

Welcome back, Tommy!


Thank you, Tommy, for going where I dare not go.

"f Taitz is not employed by Obama, she should be. She's succeeded in bringing attention to the issue of Obama's eligibility but in doing so she's made the entire issue resemble something between a Saturday Night Live skit and a Coen Brothers' film."


"The Obama slavery .... The plan is simple. He who controls energy controls the source of all wealth. Obama intends to establish a dummy corporation to control energy and wealth under the heavy hand of his government. "

Are you sure this wasn't a parody written by a poser to FR ? After all, this plan sounds vaguely familiar from the Bush Admin - how could the freepers not notice that ?




Made me snort. Welcome back Tommy! Damned I missed this weekly trip through crazyville.

You caught me by surprise. It's too late to read it tonight, but I'm glad to see you're back.

What's happened to the price of iso suits now that BP is buying them all up?


Ahhh... OwtF is back.
The beginning of the week has meaning once again.

[re: Palin butt tattoo] I agree. [a] How anyone can see Palin in a sexual reference is disgusting. [b] Even on Palin threads, there be wolf whistles and “I’d hit it” posts. [c] She’s not a sex object guys [d] she’s a Christian woman. [May 28, 2010 4:29:06 PM by Extremely Extreme Extremist

[Outlining is mine, not EEE’s] Weird. I agree with (a), if I parsed it right (I’m trying really hard not to see her in any sexual reference/context/position/whatever). For an insight into the Palin followers (needs full iso-gear), see (b). I surely agree with (c). While there’s nothing inherently wrong with (d), when it shows up in Freeperville I have to assume the worst.

I just want to know whether putting her on his butt was intended as a compliment or an insult.

Late Tuesday, organizers said that they had rescinded Taitz's invitation after questions were raised about her presence by candidates who had been contacted by The Times.

Bridget Melson, founder and president of the Pleasanton Tea Party, said the organization had been "getting calls from candidates like crazy."

"It's not worth it," she said. "She's too controversial. This is not what the tea party is about at this point." [April 15, 2010 1:40:40 PM by Mozilla]

I thought that was exactly what the Teabaggers were about. And, by “candidates like crazy”, did Mozilla mean “candidates like Crazy”? And if so, for what office is Crazy running?

[The whole set of Orly Taitz threads]

I really can’t tell the aliens from the Maple Street residents (or our friend MapleStreet).

To: IdeeFixe [multiple posts]

My French is pretty rusty, but doesn’t “idee fixe” roughly translate to “closed mind” (or at least with respect to one idea, to the point of obsession)? Great name for a resident of Freeperville.

To: Southnsoul "From what I have read in news reports,..."

Good grief! Will this nightmare never end? [April 27, 2010 5:11:42 PM by SuperLuminal]

Let us hope not, Subluminus.
