Exactly. Most of them are suckers being led around by the nose. They don't even know these were Republican ideas because they never paid attention. They just know the black guy got elected and they don't like him "for some reason."
Hahahahah, I don't know why but this just struck me as funny? Carry on!

I have to admit, "Tony" or whatever your name is, I feel.. "odd" about using certain words and phrases around, um, one of you people. I was going to say "I'm going outside now and plant a few bulbs," but now I can't bring myself to say it!

I respect & love Dr. Ben Carson.
you should....

Carson placed his exodus from the Democratic camp “toward the end of [Ronald] Reagan’s second term,” but conceded that he “thought there were some very good things about [Bill] Clinton.”

“He had the ability to be flexible,” Carson said.

Carson declined to say if he voted for Clinton.

“I don’t want to say whether I voted for him or not,” he said.

No, Nuculur Nutcase, we purchased the estate over a month ago, actually. You own a car from the 50's?
Wow Nuc, you sure are an old goober. By the way, your proxy only shows UK so it is obviously a proxy instead of the Brentwood ISP which is BT.
I'm sorry you are frustrated with your lot in life Nuc, but we all must sleep in the beds we make.
You blame others instead of accepting responsibility.
Have you ever been to England?
I have, several times. When I was 12 My Uncle Bill and I stowed away on a tramp steamer headed for Liverpool. He managed to lose me to the purser in a drunken poker game and that pretty much meant I was back and forth to England every few months for the next twelve years. I didn't see much of it though, but it smelled lovely.

To my dearest topix friends and fans!!!
I would like to take a much needed breather (whew) from the frantic frenzy of judging your posts to make a serious and heartfelt post.
Most of you know me as "Waxman" ((Waxturds,the chubby teabagger/chubby chaser from Connecticut)), but I'm so much more than that. I'm caring, I'm giving, I'm sensual. Its just that as I get older and fatter, things have slowed down quite a bit for me. A couple of years ago you'd have never caught me posting for 12 straight hours because the phone would ring 5-6 times a night (and it'd be a different dude every time!!!). Now, I'm lucky if the janitor knocks on my door for a quickie after cleaning the community toilets. I guess what I'm REALLY saying is..... I need friends (lovers too!!). I'll do literally anything to earn your trust, and you can mop up the floor with me six ways from Sunday.
Please...leave your phone numbers and,,,
Just love me unconditionaly....
Warm hugs!!! Waxman
On with the judgit tourney!!!!!!!!!!
Please show my sockpuppets some love too!!!!!!!!!!
Hugs Waxman!
Gee Nucular nutcase. For someone that whines about sockpuppets, you sure do use a lot of them.

Sleep tight little person.

I am eerily curious though... um.. is it always.. the same one of you who, um, "takes the lead," so to speak or is it like our house where hubby and I split the, um, housework? I'm only asking because I'm curious mind you and frankly there's no one else I can ask... I'm never sure, you know... just a nagging suspicioun...
In my experience, I find it's best when one person isn't stuck in one role. I find people who are generally more well-rounded in all aspects of life tend to be versatile.

Now when it comes down to the real housework, I think we both kind of gravitated towards what our chores were growing up as kids - I more often take out the trash, mow the lawn, and keep up after the dog. He more often cooks and fixes the cars LOL.

<quoted text>Mental health professionals??? Hah__ROFLMAO!
Try thinking it through, include high school age kids and forward, consider rehab stays in one of the plethora of for profit centers such as Lakeside and consider that in many cases police officers will be making the initial observations.
Also consider that once a persons name is placed on a list__it lasts forever and in Florida is very often made public where future employers, organizations, bankers, neighbors etc can find it with ease.
The Virginia Tech and Aurora killers were both being treated by mental health professionals who were aware of their tendencies toward violence, but either could not or would not take any action.

People can lose their guns when their estranged wife gets a restraining order, but not if they are certifiably looneytunes.

Stop diverting to irrelevancies.

Names should be removed from such lists when qualified professionals certify that the person no longer poses a danger.

Rut roe...the "harmonious" Denver Troll has returned for the night shift. That's always an indication that the dialogue is heading south.(i.e., insults on weight, age, lifestyle, appearance abound...well, actually they don't really bound, they mostly fall flat, but you get the idea.)

So, then you have a kid acting up in high school and the teacher wants him out of her class; she notifies the guidance counselor, principal and the kid gets railroaded into a facility.
That is incorrect for non-criminal actions unless the parents choose to ignore their rights to due process and agree to the transfer.

The neighbors lived on either side of him, he was single, they were married with children, his pine trees obstructed power lines and were cut down, guess that set him off. 3 people dead. Lovely.
That's the crux of the problem, you don't know who is close to the edge of snapping.
BTW, that nutjob on my street whose pittbull bit my daughters dog is trying to befriend us again, giving us peace signs and came over with a bag of bananas from his tree, I said, no thanks.
You should see this joker, looks like a total nutjob. I debated on telling him to pay the vet bill for the hole his dog put into her dogs face, but said, eff it. Rather not have anything to do with him.,
Pit bulls are worthless and all are dangerous. If you are afraid to shoot his dog, feed it poison.

Seriously, hire an attorney and sue him, or at least take him to small claims court. Make him share your pain.
