November 14, 2011


Did see one union smoker using the ash tube thingy outside the polling place door and I told him to get back from the entrance.

I'll bet. You told that steelworker where to stick it. Sure, he was 6 feet tall with hands like baked hams, and he could kill people using only his neck, but you marched right up to him, slapped him with your glove, and said I CHALLENGE YOU SIR! and he started crying and ran away.

More like you glared at some 90-pound girl but were too intimidated to actually say anything to her.



Tommy...you...complete me :)

They have no direction at all, do they. No focus other than badmouthing, no action items, nothing but bile and cynicism.

This....pleases me.

HUZZAH! One of the few good things about my Mondays is back! :)

I am still laughing too hard at "almost pulled it off." I do love good college humor.

Thanks for the return, TT! I always find the losing of an election to be fascinating. Progressives skulk and wonder what happened. Conservatives immediately bring out 2 arguments:

1. Non-existent voter fraud and intimidation
2. Their special brand of elitism, manifested as absolute wonderment that a majority could disagree with them.

I am a Ohioan, and SB5 never stood a chance. Kasich was just like Walker, in that through the whole campaign he not once mentioned this as a goal. Then the fifth fucking bill on the docket ( behind privatization of an economic development team, 2 audit bills and a resolution to modernize insurance actuarial treatment of the pension fund ) is a bill to destroy collective bargaining rights. Before any jobs bills. Before any budget bills. Before anything of substance.

Ohioans reacted to that in a way I am proud of. The question remains how long our memory will be when he is up for re-election.

YAY!! TommyT is back!! Snoopy happy dance from me! All's right with the world.

So then, like, this guy who noticed the Obama sticker was courting road rage - and all the trigger it takes to make him go ballistic is a 2010 sticker ?

And for Perry's bizarre speech, remember when the right wing went nuts because Clinton likely smoked a joint while in England ?

Welcome back, Kotter...

I won't have time to read it until later tonight, but I've been checking in every Monday to see whether I needed to budget time.


That is the Obama media being cited there, the all lib&homo media there, so f’m. [November 01, 2011 5:05:22 AM by dennisw (What good is a used up world and how could it be worth having - - Sting)]
Yes, that evil media that records events as they actually happen.
Issue 2 will fail, and SB5 will be repealed. Fraud? Union thuggery? Both? [November 08, 2011 7:49:13 PM by re_nortex (DP...that's what I like about Texas.)]
It takes some pretty massive fraud and thuggery to engineer a 2-to-1 win. I can’t wait for November, 2012 :).

I don’t think I want to learn any more about the Pee Pool.
So I'm driving home from work today (thank god I still have my job) and get behind a small red Honda with a "2012" sticker on the back window with the zero in the 2012 indicating the Obama logo. [September 29, 2011 10:41:16 PM by Kevin in California]
Thank Obama, the Democrats and the stimulus package that you still have a job.
Once again you've revealed I was right in thinking you are a DUmmie--conservatives don't ban people for speaking out. We let their ignorance be exposed to ridicule. :) [October 01, 2011 2:35:42 AM by Darkwolf377 (undecided)
Are you kidding, you rabid fucknuckle? I've built an entire schtick on Freepers getting banned. [Tommy T]
To be strictly correct, most of your schtick is exposing Freepi to ridicule--watching them get banned is only a sideshow.


Between the internet courage on display from (allegedly) ordering smokers around in a smoking area or dangerously driving to (almost) harass two Obama supporters on the road, these right wingers sure are all for (nearly) not banning people who speak out.

Welcome back.

Thanks, folks! Much appreciated.


I'm late responding, but welcome back. This is the thing I look forward to the most on Mondays.
