I followed the comment of UAW workers that had nothing to do with the topic and my comment was topical there: if you whiny tea beggars are going to cry about a handful of UAW workers using drugs, you look the **FOOL** for ignoring the drug habits of leaders of the right wing party, i.e., BUSH, and that's putting aside for all you know those UAW workers were hard core Trump Bachmann Perry Cain GingRICH (another snorter, by the way) tea beggars.

Good grief, this shows very poor judgement. Good luck finding a new job

You have loss all common sense!! UAW workers who have been taped drinking and puffing during their breaks are a public safety issue and shows as poor judgement as the staffers! These workers work around heavy equipment and of course it would be no concern to you if the person beside you had a couple bottles at lunch? I find your stance unbelievable. Knowing someone who was recently ran over by a fork lift and who has lost his leg, remains comatose and clinging to life I find your illogical attempts to down play and blow it off with jabs shows some very poor judgement on your part.

There are 375,000 UAW who are not drinking or puffing on the job.

I guess when you go off the rails, there is no amount of effort that is going to put you back on the rails.

Good grief. When you have people drinking and puffing at work they are a danger to other workers.

I find you to be a stupid ass: you don't know what my stance is. I hope they do not allow you to operate machinery and what a shame it is you had to wait until another drunk had a serious accident before you decided operating a forklift drunk was a bad idea.
DRINKING AND PUFFING while operating heavy equipment is dangerous. Why you would fight against this reinforces my opinion that you lack common sense. JMHO

"Rep. Larsen fires staffers for drinking on the job"

NOW THE REP. LARSEN CAN INVESTIGATE AND DETERMINE WHY THE BUSH-CLINTON-OBAMA ILLEGAL DRUG CARTEL IS ABLE TO FLY TONS OF ILLEGAL DRUGS INTO THE UNITED STATES MILITARY BASES FOR DISTRIBUTION THERE.

Too bad you fought so hard against it for so many posts. I guess I should have made it very simple from the start. Cannot argue with the obvious.:)

"if you whiny tea beggars are going to cry about a handful of UAW workers using drugs," ...actually more than that and still dangerous

"There are 375,000 UAW who are not drinking or puffing on the job." ...how about those who are; still dangerous

I don't think I was twisting anything.

EVerytime someone would post about the UAW drinking and puffing at work you always would engage in the deflective posts above. In the end you avoided forever using the words -it was wrong.

Everytime?

You mean when someone **above** me posted a **deflective post** and I responded, that meant that I favored drinking and puffing on the job?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

I guess it is okay when you posted your deflective post and then -multiple times- insisted I favored drinking and puffing on the job.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Still waiting for you to say it was wrong for George Bush to go AWOL and to use cocaine, and still waiting for you to point to my post where I said it was okay.

In the meanwhile, let's look to why you favor pedophilia- why is that? you have yet to say that it is wrong, and here we are on page two.

Why won't you say you are against it?

You are the one who tried to use deflective posts to avoid a direct answer. I choose to ignore the ploy.

Follow the thread, Sweetie.

How many comments have you posted about a handful of UAW workers drinking & puffing on the job?

and how many times have you mentioned Rep. Larsen, the topic here?

Here's a thought: start your own forum and you can make the rules on how people post.

Until then, Shug, talk to the middle finger.

I did make a comment about the lack of judgement of Larsen's staff then I saw you ripping someone over the UAW. Shrug. I really don't care; I am not easily drawn away from what the poster originally posted. I really wondered how far you were willing to push it.:)

Someone who posted off topic about the UAW and then you start whining about me posting "off topic" and you have done not a thing since except post off topic.

Funny how that is.

Here's a thought: get your own forum and you can be the queen there, too.
