Maybe she mistaked this for a Republican forum? She may not be a Conservative.
The Bug remains silent.
The poor thing.
I’m sorry, Darks, but it’s still not jazzed up enough to get past boring for me. I think we should just pack it in....
Run along, rino squish.
It appears that the bug has gone silent, thinking this will make it “Super secret ninja hidden”.
Possibly will come back with a different handle.
Bored now, the cat toy is laying there and not even twitching.
It’s been a big day. An old, old FReeper (you know, like me) got knocked off today. Jim had to do it himself. Things just kind of get unnoticed on a day like that.
Yeah, and there was another poster on that thread saying similar stuff.
Hey, off topic! Did you see that story about the Paki in England that decided to listen for on oncoming train...from the THIRD RAIL? Why do I suddenly thing of that? Mystery.
Yeah, that was quite an ingenious method of deductive investigation on his part.
So I come inside after spending a couple of hours with my olde Deere removing the latest batch of anthropogenic solidified glow bull warmthing from my driveway and settle down in front of my computing beeber-like device and find that it is stuned. While researching the cause of this event I discovered that it was stuck in a concern loop that seems to have only one possible exit routine, and that routine was in a remote procedure call named "Zot"...
Buried in the code for the loop was this 'Easter Egg' text:
"I just signed up today because of my deep concern. I am a noob concern troll. I am deeply concerned. Did I mention that I am concerned? I like lightning and kitties. I am a plant. Or a pot. Or a planted pot. Or something. I am lost in juvenile logic processes but I am an expert in telling certain groups to grow up. Because I'm deeply cobzzzgrttphhtssst.."
The message ends there and produced a graphic showing a fire of some sort.
Now Judi, on the extremely remote chance that you are not a, you know, real troll, prove your good intentions by clicking HERE and offer a sacrifice to the Kitties to prove you are a Noob worthy of retaining her skin.
Else say goodnight..
Where'd my 'Summon Kitties' button go?
I miss the days when the trolls made at least a feeble attempt to fight back. We would crush their arguments then call the kitties. Zot ensued then the paving and landscaping completed the process.
They are NOT cognizably Republican by ideology or voting record. They muddy and sully the party's and the nation's brand by being ideological treason weasels and servants of Obozo, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, Pelosi, Hoyer and the rest of the whores in DC. They need to be purged along with their junior lackeys by primary, by convention, by third party opponents, by public humiliation, by shunning, by any means necessary and consistent with law.
The job ain’t done until the Teraformers are finished. Word.
We may have inadvertently caused the extinction of those trolls.
Overhunted the plains.
Once, there were entire blarting snorting herds of trolls wandering the plains, emitting methane, burping, and generally being ugly in a no being ugly zone.
And then we came along and processed them into furniture, fertilizer, and decorations.
The bug is the weak offspring of the survivors of that once mighty herd.
We’d be doing it a favor, actually.
Word. You parked it, duuude.
I think that Ted Cruz would make a terrific President, and if he ran (which I don’t think he will so soon) I’d probably support him, given that we don’t seem to be getting very good candidates to consider a run. And no, your boy Rand Paul is not a good presidential candidate (but I do hope that he runs so that he has to give up his Senate seat, which also is up in 2016).
I am not “concerned” about Matt Bevin: I think that he’s a Paultard and a joke of a candidate for the U.S. Senate, and the only way that I would support him is if he somehow won the GOP nomination (since I would take even a Paultard over Grimey (as she prefers to be called)). With the candidates currently running for the GOP nomination, I have to hold my nose and support Mitch McConnell for his 94th term or whatever it is now. Good job there, Kentuckians, in not getting a half-decent conservative to run against McConnell, and then putting all your eggs in a Paulistinian basket.
We need more cloud production. We need water vapor and CO2 and a solar accelerator.
Great, now I’m looking up “bad parking” videos on youtube and liveleak.
I’m not sure that’s adequate. Maybe some ozone generators at high altitude?
For the apparently heinous crime of upholding the foundations of The Republic Democrats attack Conservatives, and McConnell and the RINO Cabal also attack Conservatives.
So, please enumerate the vast differences between McConnell and the average Democrat Senator worthy of getting the boot out of Washington. Tell me what great wisdom advocates for NOT unseating McConnell when there’s ample opportunity to replace his festering carcass with someone who actually reveres The Constitution, and means to see FedGov live WITHIN its bounds?
“Now we are stretched out farther than we can cover and we will be...”
“We.” You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
As for the Tea Party growing up; we’re all older than your average flea-infested Occupy Whatever protestor-for-hire, we better know, and more greatly respect, The Constituion; we have a better grasp of the Law in general, and better understand the anti-Constitutional impacts of pivotal Supreme Court decisions; we are better educated, hold better jobs, with more consistent employment histories, and at better wages; and our general selfLESSness is manifest in that the people about whom we are most concerned are, in general, the entire populace, so it is insensible to assert that the Tea Party are a “special interest” group, unless by “special interest” is meant “advocating for the long-term preservation of The Constitutional Republic of the United States of America by means of constraining the United states Federal Government to operate wholly WITHIN ALL of the applicable constraints imposed by The Constitution AS WRITTEN.”
NOBODY advocates a more mature and sane position than that.
Now, then. Whether or not you agree is your prerogative, but you had better at least respond if you care to remain “alive” in these forums. Hit-and-run carries the “death” penalty in this region of the internet.
I hope we can at some point only have blurry photos and the spoken history of the useless troll. I believe that they have evolved. Once they had to decide, fight or flight? Now they automatically choose flight.
Well of course.
Blurry photos taken at dusk in the rainforest of the pacific northwest, rumors of patchouli stink being detected, and granola bits found on campers tents.
“...your boy Rand Paul is not a good presidential candidate (but I do hope that he runs so that he has to give up his Senate seat, which also is up in 2016)....With the candidates currently running for the GOP nomination, I have to hold my nose and support Mitch McConnell...”
Two things—First you’ve NEVER seen me posting a comment supporting Rand Paul for President because that’s something I would not do. And second, thanks for clarifying that the reason you’re taking shots at Bevin is because you (holding nose or not) support the GOPe candidate in yet another race.
Thank you so much!
Heh. Unrelated note, but I just saw a commercial on TV for Tamiflu. One of the side effects was “sense of confusion in adolescents.” Damn! I’d have paid extra for that when I was an adolescent!
Why does this stuff always pass us by? Why???
Got squished like a bug. Poor thing. Can you make it all better? I didn’t get to play with it before it got caught in the bug zapper.
We were robbed of such experiences in our youth!
To get such senses of confusion, we had to watch the news on TV as people like Jimmy Carter babbled idiotically.
Now you just have to use Tamiflu.
Really? Who? Time out or the Green Mile?
Wasn't much fun to play with. Sort of like going bass fishing and snagging an old boot instead. No fight. No redeeming social value. No flavor. And the smoke stinks if you burn it... ;-)
Pinched her chair during the full contact musical chairs session.
Mile. The green kind. Carlo3.
That sums it up.
So you’re still claiming that T.W. Shannon is a “GOPe candidate” in the OK Senate race? LMAO!
I didn’t say that you support Rand Paul for President (you made clear that you support Ted Cruz, not that he’s expressed much interest yet), I said that Rand Paul is “your boy” and that you think he’d be a “good presidential candidate.” I attributed such positions to you because your support for Paultards such as Bevin and Brannon for the U.S. Senate (in their first run for public office) usually goes hand-in-hand with admiration for all things Paulistinian. If you agree with me that Rand Paul would make a terrible presidential candidate (and a worse president), then I apologize for my incorrect assumption.
I support Chris McDaniel over Senator Thad Cochrane for the U.S. Senate seat from MS. I’m still not sure which conservative to support in the SC Senate race, but even if my eventual pick doesn’t make the run-off I will support the non-Lindsey Republican over Lindsey Graham. I support Katrina Pierson over Pete Sessions in TX-32. I’m leaning towards supporting Mike Kicinski against RINO Richard Hanna in NY-22 (although I need to do some more research). Do you know what those primaries have in common? They pit good conservative candidates against far more liberal, establishment-minded incumbents. But I’m not going to support some Paultard with no record based on their unsubstantiated claim that he’s “a real conservative” against (admittedly imperfect) candidates with a longstanding, mostly conservative records.
You seem to ask “which one is supported by “establishment” figures and which one is supported by people who claim to be “anti-establishment,”” and then pick the candidate that the self-anointed “anti-establishment” folks (who often are disguised Paulbots) like, irrespective of how crappy he is or whether we know anything about him. You should try actual thinking for yourself sometime.
Just a question...
What has Bevin done for you to call him a paultard or paulistinian?
That one was too easy.
Just a hit and run troll.
Yup. That’ll get you a one way ride on ol’ sparky.
Actually, that might have been suicide by mod. Sorry to see a class of 2000 member decide to throw it all away.
Wasn’t a Mod, it was Jim. I really don’t know what caused that, but it was spectacular.
Well, the Daily Paul folks consider Matt Bevin to be one of their own: http://www.dailypaul.com/299381/please-vet-matt-bevin-matt-bevin-to-primary-mitch-mcconnell-in-2014
Bevin claims that his foreign-policy views are similar to those of Ron Paul: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?422465-Kentucky-Kate-Is-Matt-Bevin-the-Real-Deal
Bevin can’t get full-throttle Paulbot support, though (unlike Thomas Massie in the 2012 KY-04 race), because Paulistinian scion Rand Paul endorsed Mitch McConnell for reelection last year as a way of paving the ground for his own reelection and/or a presidential run.
>> I hope the Tea Party will settle down and realize their limitations. Grow up please, and grow up in a hurry.

“So youre still claiming that T.W. Shannon is a GOPe candidate in the OK Senate race?...”
Your thinking and comments are rather scattershot and unfocused. This thread is about Kentucky and “Leader” McConnell and the 2014 race for Senator from Kentucky.
I’ll say again that you’ll NEVER find a posting from me stating that Rand Paul is either “my boy” or a “good presidential candidate”. Period! You however have made clear who you support in this thread’s Senate race—and that is the GOPe (in ANYBODY’s definition) candidate Mitch McConnell. To advance the cause of McConnell, you’ve taken shots at his primary challenger in THIS THREAD. Period!
Dead even? That’s weak, like loser weak. This is TN and because Obama.
Shouldn’t this be the time where the GOPe compromises with us and McConnnell steps aside for the more electable candidate?
Your posts are excellent. Good analysis and info. I wasn’t aware at how flawed Bevin is. Thanks.
You accused me of supporting the “GOPe candidate” “in yet another race.” The first thread in which you slung that same stupid allegation at me was in a thread about the OK Senate special election, in which someone posted that “whoever Rove and McConnell endorse must be the GOPe candidate,” and I noted that even if those two endorsed conservative Speaker T.W. Shannon it wouldn’t mean that Shannon is anything but a solid conservative. The word “GOPe” set off your nervous tick, and you jumped in to claim that I must be some sort of “GOPe apologist” or something, just because I support T.W. Shannon for the Senate (while you claimed that Congressman Bridenstine was the only person in the entire state of OK conservative enough to deserve to get elected to the Senate). So, yes, if you risibly claim that I’m a “GOPe supporter” “in yet another race,” I will ridicule your claims in that prior race in which you tried to besmirch my conservative bona fides.
Tell me, who did you support in the NC-05 primary in 2004? The OH-04 primary in 2006? The MI-07 primary in 2006? The SC-04 primary in 2010? The PA Senate primary in 2004? The SC Senate primary in 2004? The MI Senate primary in 2006? The GA Senate primary in 2004? The TN Senate primary in 2006? The UT Senate convention/primary in 2010? The TX Senate primary in 2010? The AK Senate primary in 2010? I’ll put my record of supporting conservatives in GOP primaries against anyone’s.
We need to look not only at candidates’ words, but their deeds as well (by their fruits we shall know them), and whether their background and experience is consistent with being able to win the election. And we must be wary of blank slates that suddenly claim the “Tea Party” mantle—it’s uncanny how many of these erstwhile unknowns who suddenly raise a lot of money and claim to be “Tea Party leaders” are actually Ron Paul disciples (who are anything but traditional conservatives). But even those with a public record may try to pull the wool over our eyes: remember when ultraliberal RINO ex-Congressman Tom Campbell tried to claim to be a “Tea Party” candidate in the 2010 CA Senate primary?
