What is it about " fu@#ing" that needs cleaning up? It's a euphemism. Like when you say "gol darn" or "drat" or "dadgummit ", everyone knows what you REALLY mean. Same with " fu@#ing". It's "clean" and everyone knows what you really mean. (Monday Dec 16 | post #137)
Does Google have this same new policy that Goggle has? If customers wear just normal clothes instead of costumes, do they still have to provide a credit card number? Either way, how does Goggle know what you're wearing? And finally, if topix.net created a Mountain City forum that allowed only those posters who proofread, would it have any participants?

As long as we're all playing "Who cares what the topic here is supposed to be?", I'm going to ask what calculation(s) you used to conclude that you paid more than your share. (Saturday Dec 14 | post #147)
My bad. I was reading "beer drinker's" post about _beer_ but I was thinking _wine_. "Current law keeps supermarkets and convenience stores from selling beer stronger than 5 percent by weight, which is the equivalent of about 6.5 percent in the more common measure of alcohol by volume. Anything stronger can only be sold in liquor stores, which aren't allowed to sell any items beyond booze and lottery tickets." [http://www.johnso ncitypress.com/art icle/111336/matthe w-hill-says-he-may -reverse-course-an d-support-supermar ket-wine-in-tennes see My false statement notwithstanding, can you imagine Mountain City Food Country and Food Lion selling beer OR wine even if they could? In a town where crowds gather to protest attempts to remove their religious dogma from the courthouse and even bigger crowds gather to protest the rumored picketing by anti-homosexual fanatics at funerals of dead members of the military?

Is it a rumor? Ask whomever you heard it from! Tennessee state law does not allow grocery stores to sell beer. A bill allowing towns and counties to allow grocery stores to sell beer failed in the last legislative session. Johnson City Press articles over the past several weeks suggest that the bill will become law in the next session. If the new bill is the same as the old bill, county/city governments will have to act to allow stores to sell beer. Then the STORES will have to actually sell it. Can you imagine Mountain City enacting an ordinance allowing beer sales? Can you imagine Food Country and Food Lion actually selling it? (Friday Dec 13 | post #2)
Extrapolated" is a pretty fancy word for someone who wastes his time reading -- let alone commenting in -- this forum. Do you s'pose anybody, besides me, who participates here knows what it means? (Thursday Dec 12 | post #16)
Mom's"? Do you suffer from apostrophephilia? (Thursday Dec 12 | post #7)
DAMN RIGHT! We should allow only locally grown porn, trashy music (what's a cd tape?), bad dressers, homeless folks, and all kinds. Our local trash shouldn't have to travel to find a place to hang outKeep"? "Keep" Johnson County clean??? Which Johnson County are you living in? Certainly not the one in Tennessee!

I'll give you "gonna" but, if you're going to call someone else "stupid" , you can avoid embarrassment if you: a. know the difference between "you're" and "your" and use the correct one; b. use a comma after a subordinate clause ("If your gonna talk about him"); c. know the difference between "no" and "know" and use the correct one; d. capitalize "Stupid" when using it as a proper name and precede it with a comma when using it as a noun of address. This is just junior high school English that helps distinguish the stupid from the not stupid. You're welcome. (Monday Dec 9 | post #5)
Couldn't prove that from your postings #45-49, 52, and 54. (Friday Dec 6 | post #56)

If he's already been there for 6 years and is still there, sounds like there's a good possibility he'll be there for a couple or three years more. (Friday Dec 6 | post #3)
Wait, wait, wait, wait! You want The Tomahawk to be a newspaper and conduct actual journalism???? What're you, nuts? Or just new around here? You may as well ask that JC high school cheerleaders applaud and lead cheers when the opposing team executes a good play. (Monday Dec 2 | post #78)
You're just going to cause taxes to go up for everybody, including for your derelict friends. How? Because when you go on trial -- drugs, incest, statutory rape, harboring fugitives, domestic violence, public lewdness, whatever -- the court is going to have to go at least as far as Tijuana to find a jury of YOUR peers. Maybe all the way to Somalia. Or even Bangladesh. (Sunday Dec 1 | post #68)
