A Mod told me they prefer that this kind of thing not be discussed on the board and they will handle it behind the scenes. So you’re absolutely right.
I got the same thing. Didn’t take long for him to come back.... heh heh
You’re right. Full throttle in low gear only works coming off the line at the drag strip.
One thing I appreciate about people like you is that you let me know it’s never too late for me to learn something new about honing my skills.
So, who’s enjoying the day besides me?
Too hot! And we had a surprise thunderstorm at 4am. Windows down in the company van, grill open and cover on the ground. What a mess!
Thank you, Joe.
We’re both very lucky that I don’t have to be you after all. ;-p
Got two FM from “ Omahaneb” ....is this another from the same moron who has a zot wish?
May the flames begin!
I couldn’t believe we didn’t get it.
I was watching the radar as it was bearing down on us, and my son’s facebook friends from WNY were talking about how bad it was. We expected to get nailed.
There was LOTS of lightning, but very little rain.
I’m at work...what do you think? LOL,
Have a good one!
That wouldn’t work. S-negger is naturalized. Heck, I don’t think McCain is a NB Citizen.
We had rain. It beat some flowers off the Iris. Snapped the flowers right off.
The storms have been really bad and continuous. Anybody that reads their Bible isn’t surprised though.
Thanks to BOTH of you!
Ooooh! You remembered that I like sparkley. Thanks.
You can always depend on Joe.
Me? Not so much. ;-D
Romney go home, or
we will stay home in November.
we will stay home in November.
I'll vote. I'll write in a TP pick. DC elitists aren't going to tell me who to vote for and I refuse to not vote. Men died so that I could.
I also got one from the same thread from Omaha12b. He said:
"Hi. Im Mike from Omaha, Nebraska. Im new to Free Republic. I came here because Im a Democrat and usually vote Democrat."
I was going to ask if he came here because he is seeing the light, but he has been banned.
I got the same FReepmail from the little sheet head twerp. Must be an awful slow day at the DUmp.
Thursday we had hail the size I’ve never seen in this area. It was over one inch in diameter.
Took out a couple tomatoes and peppers but also gave every vehicle we looked at slight hail damage. Four of ours, (mr. mm wasn’t home from work yet) and both our neighbors. Two of the vehicles are so old that it doesn’t really matter. The other two we’re working on.
Mr. mm thinks he can get it out himself because the dings are so small. There’s lots of information online about how to do that.
This is what I got when I clicked on the user name. Zotted off the net.
The requested document does not exist on this server.
They had damage on all the cars on her block. Cracked or smashed windows and windshields.
Governor Christie is a funny sort of politico ... On the one hand he tells the CO2-tax pushers to go fly a kite; but then in the same breath he implies “anthropogenic climate change” is real. I get the impression that Governor Christie likes to ride two horses with one ass.
It has been weird weather. It just hasn’t felt right.
I’m grateful that no worse damage was done.
I hope the rest of your Memorial Day weekend is wonderful.
Yeah, I had one of those in my FReepmail, too.
Mine included this YouTube link, so I'm assuming this is a video of DannyH himself.
(Poor li’l feller.) ;-)
Just a lowlife troll that likes to be annoying...and changes his name from time to time. No one of any consequence in other words.:)
Works for me! :)
You gotta put a plow on that FR tractor, and paint it green!
“Good Night. I expect more respect tomorrow.”
Just wondering, what happens if Romney or Rudy wins the nomination? Does that mean FR will be in opposition and we'll go third party?
Just asking this question, I do not support Romney or Rudy on the record.
I mean the latter of course.
Ive been thinking about the former quite a bit of late, as I have become increasingly aware of the plummeting purchasing power of wages. I was overseas for a long time, so I didnt see it at first.
I realized that I had more purchasing power on unemployment in 1977 than I have had working 40 hours a week these last few years.
It now seems to me that wages have been eroded from the bottom up. Illegal aliens first took the lowest jobs on the ladder, like dishwasher. This drove those wages down. Then they became foremen on lawn care trucks. And the higher they climbed on the ladder, the more damage they did to the wage structure.
Today I figure a rough 500% inflation in prices across the board since 1976. (As I said, this is rough. Some things have gone up more, some less.) However, wages have not gone up 500%. It seems to me that wage-earners have lost ground.
This, IMO, is directly attributable to the availability of cheap, illegal labor.
Ive spent most of my adult life criticizing labor unions for being communist-run and irrational. Or is that redundant? Anyway, I am now starting to think that some companies are selling the American people and the United States down the river, not merely to remain profitable, but to become *more* profitable.
And yes, yes, I know: Over-regulation, taxation, wages and benefits that could run a company into the ground, responsibility to the shareholders, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
All true. But is moving overseas the right answer? Is it the ethical, courageous answer? Or would a better answer be to use their influence to smack down the demonrats? I dont have figures to support this, but Id bet that if taxation and regulation were more rational, companies could offer proper wages and benefits and still turn a profit.
Of course, could is one thing, will is another. Looking at the conduct of companies today, I dont know what would happen. Are there no decent people left in business today?
I know of one company that opened a call center here, and paid workers the same wage they paid in other areas of the country. Then they looked around and said, hey, we dont have to pay that much here. The local economy sucks; there are no decent jobs; we can just announce that everyone is getting a 25% pay cut, like it or lump it.
And they did. Just because they could. Even though they were already benefiting from tax breaks and lower costs. Yeah, they were turning a profit, but by screwing their workers, they could report a *larger* profit.
This turned them into a McJob that attracts societys dregs. Like McDonalds, they want workers to come in the front door for training, work until they are due a raise, and then get bum-rushed out the back door. The notion of getting good people, then treating them right so they can keep them, is utterly alien to them.
So, several hundred scrape-by, poverty level jobs became several hundred jobs that left the workers eligible for food stamps. It is said that there are many jobs here, and any three of them will support you. Of course, that leaves you working 24 hours a day, but if you choose instead to work 16 hours a day and apply for food stamps, you are a lazy-ass welfare queen.
The importation of cheap labor to drive wages down is, according to my Faith, a sin that cries to Heaven for revenge. I dont know what to think other than that the border is not sealed and illegal aliens are not deported because commercial interests want the cheap labor, and politicians (Americas only native criminal class) are going along with them.
All we need is the right person in the WH.
I very much fear that if the right person — Governor Palin — were elected, the forces of evil would JFK her.
And when Eisenhower shipped them home, he didnt just deposit them across the border. He sent them down the coast. :-)
Good old Ike. He was no MacArthur, but he was definitely smarter than the average bear. (I just wish it would turn out to be a lie that he was carrying on with his driver in London.)
“Nixon,for all his faults”
Most of which were exaggerations, distortions, or inventions of the lamestream misleadia.
Is not to be forgetting that most capitalist running-dog Americans had no idea that the press, as they were then known, were America-hating agents of the Soviet Union. (See Walter Cronkite’s book.)
As to cheap labor, there have ALWAYS been untrained workers that will take the jobs the illegals vacate. I knew a local that was picking with the Mexicans. They threatened him and he laughed at them. Then he started having "accidents". He left. They will NOT allow Americans to work those jobs.
I can relate to companies that used to be "family" and cared about employees. Not anymore.
I think Palin is a smart cookie and would know she's a target. Any conservative that wins would know they are a target.
Never heard any gossip about Ike. Was just never interested. There are always stories/whispers about strong, moral Presidents. It's the liberal way.
I got one from “omaha12a” or something stupid like that.
Ya think the little tard is from Nebraska ‘ r something? My last set of drivels were from a “ Omahaneb” or something like that.
NO imagination! THAT deserves a zot!
Seems like a really stupid DUmmie who only changes one or two numbers / letters in its screen name.
She can come to FR any time she wants for the ZOT parties.
Very boring, doncha think? :)
