Tape Worm,

Do you Feel that nobody on here KNOWS that YOU are the Drunk?

I have been generous to you because of your clear and consistently revealed Mental Illness.

But do not confuse my/our kindness with ignorance....WE know that you are mixing something with that Thorazine!

By the way, WE notice your "hours of operation" here.

Your hours follow like a clock......Just the same as they run things in any Insane Asylum where the inmates need to have structure and control.

You reveal yourself!

The Afghan Quarterback
(Three years from now)

Marc Trestman had put together the perfect team for the Chicago Bears. The only thing that was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn't find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win.

Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in Afghanistan . In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Afghan soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away.

KABOOM!

He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney.

KA-BLOOEY!

Then he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph.

BULLS-EYE!

"I've got to get this guy!" Coach said to himself. "He has the perfect arm!" So, he brings him to the U.S. and teaches him the great game of football. And the Bears go on to win the Super Bowl.

The young Afghan is the MVP of the Superbowl and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man desires is to call his mother. 

"Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"

"I don't want to talk to you, the old Muslim woman says."You are not my son!"

"I don't think you understand, Mother," the young man pleads. "I've won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm here among thousands of my adoring fans."

"No! Let me tell you!" his mother retorts. "At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn't get raped!" The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says, "I will never forgive you for making us move to Chicago !!!!"

There is not a politician alive that can stop this senseless violence. It is cultural bred by (c)rap 'music' and the gang culture attached to it. It is a culture that glorifies drugs, violence against women, pimping and criminality. One of the worst is gay z who has actually been a guest at the white house! Whatever happened to the days when only REAL artists like Rubinstein, Horowitz, Casals and other greats were guests at the white house?

not really that liberal common sense, but thanx. still on the US politix thread, like right now...

I suppose this is cross referenced to the Mpls. thread...I look in there every now and then, but it is still the same page after page of thirdgrade insults and no real topics. look at all the important things going on in Mn right now and look at the threads up for discussion...sad. it used to be a nice place to chat.

I'm not saying "emplyee" and since we've ALWAYS given those perks, you have no point... Perhaps, you should learn about government and the word employee-
em·ploy·ee also em·ploy·e (m-ploi, m-, mploi-)
n.
A person who works for another in return for financial or other compensation.

Does Obama work for "an" other ??? Tell a cop you sign their paycheck, it's an interesting "argument".

Your birther nut spam posts for the first four years of his great Presidency have failed your non-existant memory? No surprise. You tried to convince everyone. It, like most things you do, failed. Look back in your files, tubby. Again, you're on empty.
hahahahahahahahaha
Sorry pookie, you have been kicked out of the bot club. You keep saying Obama isn't president due to not having two parents that were citizens.

I like teabaggers, they select what they want to hear and believe idiots, if it suits them...

Pretty sad, the average teabagger IQ is equal to Obama Phone Lady Michelle Dowery, since they take her nonsense as gospel...
