It's too late for them to go under "deep cover." We already know what CBS stands for.

Apparently, the folks at CBS Sports want to distance themselves - - by MILES - - from the scumbags at CBS News. Good for them.

I was slumming over at DUmmieland the other day...and it is amazing how many of their posters have the upside down flag as they symbol they "proudly" display by their screen names...

I don't know which disgusts me more...their language or those flags!!

If see someone flying an upside down flag ( real one ), I'll call the police. It's the international symbol for distress, not an advertisement that Clymer lives there.

Disgusting isn't it???

Whenever I am tempted to post a cuss word...and stop myself, I am so grateful that Jim Robinson made it one of the rules NOT to be able to use such nasty language.

But, of course, the words, bad as they are, are insignificant compared to the outright nastiness, and HATE that permeates the whole web site.

Being CBS, I have to assume this is along the same vein of the democrats running around with Bibles after the last election.

I couldn't believe it P....I went over there to check their reactions to the crying of Mrs. Alito...and at least 3 in a row had that flag "proudly" displayed...

Believe it or not...I could feel this confused look come over my face...I still can't come to grips with the fact that there are people that live in this country, enjoying the freedoms we have...and yet can be so disrespectful...

Color me convinced!

L, those people are totally whacked. It scares me that they call themselves Americans and talk like that. Their hatred for this country is right up there with the islamofacist. Very scary.

I go over there from time to time and cannot believe some of them haven't been arrested by the FBI.

I regularly go on patrol at the Gloom and Duomers. They never cease to amaze me. A couple day ago one idiot admitted to defacing a Diebold truck with a marker then preceded to start a poll on whether every one thought what she had did was an act of vadalism or justified for two stolen elections? I dispatched an e-mail with links to the posts to Diebold. Sure they got a laugh hopefully more out of it.

Their kind are somewhat amusing ... if things were really as they claim they are, these guys would long ago have been rounded up in the dark of night and sent off to "the camps".

I am beginning to think that their flag of choice may be the red cresent...of the Islamofacists...

they certainly worry more about their well being than our troops...especially Dickie Durbin.

Worked with CBS news twenty-odd years ago. My impression was the the faces on the screen were "talent". They had no connection to reality, their only connection was to the script. Today it seems to me that the quality of the "talent" has been eroded. P.S. I liked Connie Chung as a person.

I know you don't mean it that way, but
"The word "patriotism" for Johnson meant, of
course, in its then usage, adherence to the most
ostentatious Whiggism, what would now be called
"leftism"."
-Robert Conquest; The Dragons of Expectation

So "Leftism is the last refuge of a soundrel" is a more up to date .

About three blocks away from my house is a low-income apartment building. Some jerk who lives there put up a Christmas display: an upside-down American flag in red, white and blue Christmas lights. Yeah, right, welfare leech, I wanted to say. America's been so very, very bad to you.

It's probably because all playoff games will be aired to our troops.

Was it me, or did the Broncos cheerleaders have on military-like outfits?

That's what I think, it's some sort of signal...you know this stuff goes out into space, where there are satellites and things. I've always suspected CBS was connected to aliens, they may be using our very own flag to contact the mother ship.

Yes, indeed, and it's interesting that the two (bad language and destructive thoughts) go together. I remember a 6th grade teacher who had a sign on the wall: "Cursing is a sign of a weak mind trying to express itself forcibly." Like you, I stop myself before using a curse word and ask myself whether I really know what I'm talking about. Sometimes I find that an impulse to curse is a sign that I need to put on my thinking cap!
