Or I might just sic sneering, sly, sinister Silverstein - nano-thermite, PNAC'sters and all -- on that fat ass.
As per Zaptuder grainy footage, upright buildings don't just fall down in a decidely down-ward angle like that-- back and the left, back and to the left, back and to the left...
BritExpat posts from France...hence the y'know, expat. Pierre had a remarkable library of liberal/atheist links to rely on but even empty-handed he'd smack the French right out of BritExpat.

Hey, how the F' did I/we forget about 'MKOT'?

Truth be told, as much as I apparently annoyed him on a sub-molecular level, he had/has my respect along with Laura and few others. Maybe more so.

I know about Pierre, we used to argue in a different forum. And I feel you about your neighbor. Fact is, a lot of really smart people from Chicago have cruised through here, even a couple who weren't you. Whenever I find myself in an ethical dilemma though, I typically lean back in my chair, scratch my beard and wonder to myself WWMKOTD?

Nostalgia...at your age...

(Psst, who said I was in Chicago?)

So you remember 'My Kind of Town', too?

As for nostalgia... they sure don't make like they used to, eh?

You also misundertake me. Do not misundertake me. Do you remember that poem by George C. Scotton? About warrior/battle reincarnation? That's me but in a wider sense/context. I don't separate past, heaven, ecstasy, etc from The Moment.

Sirosleh, why are you not more exuberant? Sure, the Iranian bomb or another Holocaust may end as all tomorrow morning at 6:00 am-- as Lubavitch rebbe famously said... But man, we as people embody THE ultimate greatnress and miracle/uniqueness.

Eternity, Allah cannot touch us, we collective give them the middle finger and it pisses them off. Sparta and Mohicans are still celebtrated, and compared to us what are they? NOTHING.

Every day, every success going forward is just gravy. Cheer up!

Do I sound melancholic? Sirosleh?

Crack it up to the time of year. All my Christian friends get a little crazy around the holidays and then calm down after new years which is what I'm seeing now. Wow, what a ride.

Still, you were right. There are people I'd like to wish a Happy New Year but they didn't swing by. You never know...it is a time of miracles.

It's not a binary proposition. There are 50 shades of not-melancholia. I prefer to see you as close to "exuberant" as possible.

And of course I am right -- what kind of a 'Know-It-All' would I be otherwise, huh?

Think about it, playa. We ARE the greatest & the luckiest. Neither eternity nor Allah have nothing on us. Not a thang. They can look, but they CANNOT touch.

F' the haters. Let's dance!

How could I ever leap to that conclusion? When Jews lay claim to the same space it's called land grabbing and dispossession.

Well, maybe not explicitly, but how will you accomplish the following uttered from your own thin cruel fingers?

Obama came in as the 4th best President ever.



Hard to dispute unbiased research.

A study group recently released its findings as to the best presidents of the United States of America.

Obama has been rated as the 4th best president ever:

Reagan and 9 others tied for first, 15 presidents tied for second, 18 tied for third, and Obama came in fourth along with Jimmy Carter .

I think I know what's going wrong. Arabs need to put their lines closer together so there's not so much room to read between them.

He lost me when he said "Anyone who can read the future can see....' So, he can see the future? Kind of like Rambone's $10/gal prediction for 2010. Kind of like Sadam's Mother of all Battles. 100 hours to kick them out of Kuwait. Kind of like, well, I could keep going, but nobody likes a fact bully.

You DO realize that if the economy/real-estate market get half-way decent in nect 4 years, Obama will be on Mt.Rushmore - probably in his lifetime, right?

Give it a rest, Hasbara maven. You had a chance to turn Manchurian, err, I mean Kenyan Candidate-in-Chief into 1-term Jimmy Carter.

Your precious Mossad had a chance to Breitbartn/threaten/blackmail or otherwise just find DEFINITIVE PROOF of his (many) secrets & lies --- that even liberal MSM wouldn't be able to supress.(See: alleged private video tape and LA Times owners veto in 2008)

I mean, you guys took down JFK, RFK, Meir Kahane, Dr. Gerald Bull, John-John, Wellstone, Hugo Chavez, Nasser and lord know who else. You used to move mountanis and Islamic nuke reactors.

And neither you nor Dick Cheney boys (redundant?) could touch Barry Husseinovich Soetoro -- when everyone knew at least sdince 2004 DNC that he was The groomed star that was gonna bring you to your knees....

You have noone to blame but yourselves. That goes doubley so for Republican Party who did everything possible to lose in 2012 ---> and thus assure O's immortality.

LOL, what happened to you guys? Totally out-smarted, out-hustled & out-muscled by Valerie Jarret, Axelrod, Massina and Michelle.

Yo ass used to be bewteful.
