is it time to burn down the hells angels club house?

the funny thing is, this gang isn't a bunch of dummies (unlike some people who can't tell the difference between BY and BYE). you might want to take this down before they find out who & where you are.  (Sep 28, 2010 | post #2)

WAMC-FM's 6,900 Listeners

i listen to WAMC frequently ... however, i won't listen to Chartock drown out guests with his condescending "i'm right (18003239262) you're wrong (public radio stations are a dying breed)next caller" BS. it would be more productive to drive a bum to a liquor store & hand him a $50 dollar bill than to give money to that scheister. i prefer to let people who can't think for themselves throw their money away.  (Sep 27, 2010 | post #16)

Sheriff Endorses Szczepaniak for 2nd Berkshire Seat

it astounds me that someone would actually endorse (let alone vote for) someone who wouldn't even be able to vote for himself in some states. i don't care how much Tom Sczcepaniak has 'turned his life around'. i'm part of the society that is going to be paying the salary of the individual who will be representing me, & i'm not going to lower my standards. i will be voting for Rosanne Frieri.  (Sep 13, 2010 | post #13)

Eagle dropping Topix

LOL. and yet you, 'Freedom of Speech' & 'Just Great' are here, under assumed names, participating ... and bashing the website itself. anyway ... it's too late. the Eagle will always be associated with Topix. local events, articles, incidences & opinions will continue to be discussed & made fun of. insults will be thrown. humorous comments will continue, & the (sometimes)intelli gent community conversation that is interwoven through all of that will endure. i think that the increasing criticism of the Eagle's integrity got the best of them ... & though i'm all for the registering of Topix users to lessen cases of possible libel, this decision just showcases the ignorance & bias that has been pointed out again & again on Topix. shame on the Berkshire Eagle for even thinking about censoring it's readers.  (Aug 1, 2010 | post #18)

City approves Haddad expansion

i've found in the past few years that the majority of dealers from the Albany/Springfield areas are far more respectful & appreciative of business ... & more willing to go out of their way to make a deal. my experiences with Berkshire dealerships have run the gamut from: general rudeness 'i'm going to talk to your friend & ignore your questions' ... high pressure "this deal is null & void when the store closes, so you need to make a decision & sign the paper within the next 10 minutes" ... dismissiveness 'i'm going to assume that you're ineligigible for financing, or that the vehicle you're considering is out of your price range'. and my favorites for pre-owned fun: "where's your huband?" or "where's your father?" ... and "the engine is SUPPOSED to sound like that"  (Jul 25, 2010 | post #55)

Finish line fracas ends with arrest

i wasn't badmouthing UofP ... i was making a point to an idiot. i think the heat has made some people a little oversensitive.  (Jul 8, 2010 | post #84)

Finish line fracas ends with arrest

FYI i'm not the only one unimpressed with the writing/editing/ge neral biased BS that the Eagle spews ... i find it hard to believe that the Eagle editor truly writes the headlines anyway ... half the time this person doesn't even EDIT, let alone think of headlines. if you honestly think your peurile insults bothers me, think again "genius" (note spelling). now back to summer school with you.  (Jul 8, 2010 | post #83)

Finish line fracas ends with arrest

if you read the story, there was another person ahead of McNinch at the blocked exit ... & they seemed to get out without incident. how patient would YOU be (while directing traffic, on asphalt, in 90+ degree weather) if some lunatic in a BMW tried to mow YOU down. there's no point in trying to reason with someone who's clearly irrational. the guy made a fool out of himself, & the public has a right to know (as his actions put the public in danger) ... even if it's for the sole purpose of fleeing when they see him coming.  (Jul 8, 2010 | post #71)

Finish line fracas ends with arrest

and to Conor: i understand that a thesaurus is quite cumbersome ... so in the highly likely event that another 'fracas' occurs, you can choose from the following: affray, altercation, battle, brawl, broil, brouhaha, dispute, donnybrook, feud, flap, fray, free-for-all, hassle, knock-down-drag-ou t, melee, mix up, quarrel, riot, row, ruction, ruffle, rumpus, run-in, scrimmage, scuffle, set-to, squabble, stew, trouble, tumult, uproar, words. you're welcome.  (Jul 8, 2010 | post #58)

i hardly think that your burger-flipping degree from the University of Phoenix online college qualifies you to judge the 'second rate staff' at the hospital. as for McNinch, his 'spoiled little boy' antics ... regardless of whether Gaynor was being 'mean' or not, he defied an officer's orders & put people in danger by doing so. he deserved the cuffs & the piddly fine ... & he's lucky that his impatience & arrogance didn't lead to an injury.  (Jul 8, 2010 | post #57)
