Putting the M back in Macchio

I just saw the greatest thing ever.  It was a short film calld The Office Party.  It starred Ralph Macchio (notice the correct spelling)...with a mullet.  I nearly pissed myself.  In fact, had I not been cranking it to Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation two channels up, I probably would have.  So I decided I had to make this post, because it has been too long since my last.

Phil on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 4:48 AM

The Sports Guy raises an interesting point about the Olympics (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page...ecowbell/040810):

"Did you see the odds for the USA Hoops team in Athens? 1-to-4???? In other words, you have to wager $400 on them just to win back $100. Incredible. Has anyone WATCHED this team? They don't have a single outside shooter in a tournament where you need to make 10-to-12 threes a game just to keep up. I'm telling you, they're going to get waxed. It's a formality. I'm leaning towards Argentina (6-to-1) or Lithuania (5-to-1) to take this thing, although I need to do a little more research.

Which raises the bigger question: Is it okay to bet against the United States?

Here's how I rationalize it: My ultimate goal is for the USA Committee to start picking true 12-man teams with shooters, rebounders, role players and energy guys, as I wrote last Wednesday. There's only one way this happens: We get embarrassed in Athens, followed by a week of columns and TV/radio shows around the country questioning this entire selection process. In the long run, it's better for us to get walloped over these next two weeks. It's for a greater good."

We should have sent over the Detroit Pistons. At least we know they play team ball and have all of the Mechanics of a great team.

Green Baron on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 6:07 AM

No, we should've sent the Bearcats. That way, when they're losing, they can threaten the other teams' lives and tie them to chairs and torture them and stuff.
I say, send the thugs. Good players can always have bad days, but thugs will kill you if you beat them.

Phil on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 6:49 AM

Not only that, but if the terrorists come to athens, someone on the cincy team would just punch their horse in the mouth and then body slam their girlfriend for good measure..

Phil on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 7:00 AM

I just noticed that the terror alert picture changed. I'll be damned.

Brock on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 7:19 AM

First... Phil, let me point out a couple of flaws... one, Troy Smith (a UofL fatass center) bodyslammed his girlfriend, UC players don't do that, they have to many skank ho white chicks hangin' off them to be jealous. Second, the terror alert thing has been like that for almost a month now.

Saw Eric Hicks yesterday, and the sonofabitch is going to rip someone's arms off this year. I guess since Huggins wasn't around, they just have them lifting overtime.

Church on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 7:28 AM

Brock you saw Erick Hicks, was he picking up trash on the highway in one of those work release orange jumpsuits

Green Baron on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 7:33 AM

So I was watching some of the greatest episodes of Knight Rider last night. One involved Devon getting arrested by small town crooked cops, and then one of the best ever: KITT vs. KARR.
I never realized their were so many mistakes, though.
Like, when KITT and Michael are getting chased by a semi in the desert, the inside shots of KITT show trees and residential housing out the windows. And when Devon takes a jump in the truck he stole from prison and not only is the dude not Devon driving the truck, he's wearing a freakin' helmet!
And when KITT vs KARR, Michael is riding on top of KARR and then jumps to KITT, a few minutes later it shows an internal shot of KARR and Michael (stunt man) is still hanging off the window.
But have no fear, even with these awful mistakes, I never lost my woody for one of the greatest shows ever.
When are the "Airwolf" DVD's coming out? Anyone know if they're even making them? Now that was a show.

adrian on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 7:40 AM

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 10:25 AM

fat people fucking piss me off to no end. You'd think at some point you'd realize "hey I've gained someweight maybe I should do something" If not at like 300 lbs, you'd think atthe pointwhere your stomach got toobig and you couldn't reach around to grab your own goddamn dick you might think about loosing weight.

GET UP OFF YOUR FAT ASS AND PUT THE FUCKING FORK DOWN.

Brock on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 10:45 AM

Amen Burket! Could you please restate that again? This time include more vulgarity and insults!

Amen Plow King!

One other thing to note about that story... the guy wants to be able to take a walk with his wife..... what??!!! That gruesomely fat fuck has a wife?! That drive me insane! Ok, maybe she married him when he weighed 300 lbs, some girls like big guys... but why the fuck did you keep plugging a hose to his mouth and pumping Crisco into him? Or, maybe she married him after he weighed 1000 lbs... and unless she weighs 1000 lbs, what could she see in him? He has a good personality?! The sonofabitch can't even roll himself over! Can he even speak? Let alone have a personality.

Insensitive? No... I'm overweight, and I know it, so what am I doing about it? Not gaining more weight! For the love of God!

Phil on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 1:28 PM

The Sports Guy on Madden 2005: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page.../cowbell/040811

If you missed it two years ago, he had a write up about Madden 2003 that includes a ranking of the top video game athletes of all time (http://espn.go.com/page2/s/simmons/020814.html) including a brief bit on Video Bo Jackson: "Anyone who played video games in the late-'80s discusses Bo Jackson reverentially, in hushed tones ... you can't even understand unless you were there. If ESPN ever decided to run a 'SportsCentury and Beyond: Video Bo Jackson' episode, they could easily fill the hour just with people telling Tecmo Bowl stories about Bo. Nobody else was even close."

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 1:37 PM

Bo Jackson and Marcus Taylor were the great LT equalizers.

Phil on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 1:51 PM

Marcus Allen you mean? We made a rule that you couldn't be NY or LA in that game. It was just too unfair.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 2:09 PM

Yeah Marcus Allen, don't know how I f'ed that one up.

We never initiated that rule where you couldn't be either team, if you chose them then your weaknesses were more than exploited. It didn't matter if you were the Giants because when you run with Marcus Allen he runs to the opposite side of LT which equates to a TD baby. If you continue to use Bo Jackson then after the handoff you just run to the opposite side of the field or the huge sweep play where your sweep turns into a 10 yard arc (hopefully causing the diving LT to miss) and everyone who ever played against the Raiders realizes that those are very possible plays.

The good thing about being the Giants is you fear no teams defense, especially the Raiders. Howie Long wasn't that good in the middle and he was the best on the Raiders defense if I remember correctly. Also, you should be able to block every single PAT utilizing LT's speed, thus only allowing the raiders to score 6 on every scoring drive instead of 7.

adrian on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 6:08 PM

I always took Da Bears! Rushed with 'Sweetness' all damn game

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 11, 2004 at 7:52 PM

Yeah you did you little bastard, and then you could use singletary on defense who was damn fast, though not as fast as LT.

Phil, funny you mention the phrase "stick my dick in the mashed potatoes", there is a story similar to that involving a guy I work with.

Phil on Thursday, August 12, 2004 at 11:38 AM

now, did the dude actually, uh, you know, go at the mashed potatoes (and was there any gravy)? or did he yell it out? the phrase itself is from I believe a beastie boys song, but I don't know even which album (license to ill maybe?)

Hey fellas...been MIA for a while, I was out of town visiting family. Just wanted to let you know the west korean is back in the mother fuckin' hiz-ous.

Anyone going to trivia tonight at o'sheas?

Bigworm on Thursday, August 12, 2004 at 12:34 PM

This is the story as confirmed by several employees at work. This guy, who I will refer to as Joe Dirte', was having dinner with his wife. For some reason, this guy jumps up in he middle of dinner, whips it out and lays it in his wife's pile of mashed potatoes, and says "Baby suck my cock". Astonished his wife simply gets up and leaves the room. She asked him why he would do such a thing and his response was "I don't know, I saw you eating mashed potatoes and thought you might want to blow me".

Talking about classy.

Bigworm on Thursday, August 12, 2004 at 12:35 PM

Keep in mind, Joe Dirte has a lifelong ambition of directing midget porn, so it is well known that he isn't all there in the head.

Well, in case you get all your news from Natty Sci
It's official...US loses to Puerto Rico in Basketball.
Said Larry Brown:
"Anybody watching that game who enjoys basketball should get a thrill out of it," Brown said. "From our perspective, all we can do is figure out what we're made of. I'm anxious to see if we'll be able to do that."

Now, I like Larry Brown, but COME ON! You'll be anxious to see....???? You're the freaking coach, jackass! You shouldn't be anxious to see shit, you should be crackin' skulls! For fuck's sake! You just got your ass kicked by a country that's not even a fucking country! Time to get your fucking team in gear and win something.
Now I've heard the talk on what this team needs and why we suck. Personally, I think it's a load of horseshit. Yah, we could field a better team; but there is NO FUCKING REASON that THIS team should lose. It could be better, but it still has more talent on that fucking team with only two players than the whole goddamn non-country of Puerto Rico! And the coach is anxious to see if they can play better! Bullshit, make them fucking play better. I bet you Bobby Knight could get those cocksuckers in gear.
Screw you Larry Brown. Ever since you left the Pacers you've turned into a royal pussy. Iverson butt-rams you and you got no balls anymore!
To hell with USA basketball

btw, if you are avoiding posting because you fear the it will indicate that you've visited the site, and therefor know that Mindy needs help moving, so you keep quite so you can pull the "oh, I hadn't been to the site" excuse, no need to worry. She's in Bloomington right now unpacking. Much love to Lynnie and stewie for helping with the big move, which wouldn't have been that bad if it weren't for the one-ton cowch and Mindy's ability to open not one, not two but three closets full of boxes. She's very sneaky. But she did treat us to BW3s.

Special consideration must go to Wes who just barely missed us. On the other hand, Marc, having already helped move the damn couch into the apartment, instead opted for Trivia. That lucky bastard.

jen on Tuesday, August 17, 2004 at 3:00 PM

I didnt help with the move, mostly because I'm in another state, but if I would have known that there was BW3s involved, I would have made the 4 and a half hour drive.... Anyhow, Mindy said you got the new job, Phil. Old news, I know, but congratulations. I got a job offer today, too. Its for a comedy booking agency in southern IL, but its travelling 5 days per week. The job is basically visiting the clubs that they book in IN and IL, making sure they're good venues and making sure the comics get paid. Good pay, under the table and in cash. Sounds slightly shady, but I already knew that the comedy business was. Not sure if I'll do it or not, but I'll be in Mindy's neighborhood quite a bit if I take it, so maybe she'll let me sleep in one of her bedrooms at her new house!

Yep, a pointless and uninteresting post, but possibly better than no one posting at all. Possibly.

(5) A late 1800's Victorian-style house is right where you want to put a new parking lot? What to do. I know. Pick up the somamabitch and move it by truck.

(6) Hot girl fiddle band. I'm going to say it again because it bears repeating...Hot girl fiddle band. That's a phrase I never thought I'd ever put together in my life. If it really catches on then maybe I can bring back my "air-fiddle" instead of just using it for a Dave Matthews song and "Devil went Down to Georgia". Air-guitar and air-drums often overplayed. Air-harmonica is fun but rare. Air-cowbell is spectacular.

Back to the Jeep yanking off the hummer guy....
I read his little blurb, and he said that:
"I was in the tent looking around when out of the corner of my eye I saw a Hummer H2 pull up into the parking lot. Mind you, there were probably 20 jeeps of various types in the parking lot and a Hummer pulling into the parking lot is probably not the most welcome there. It would be like going to a Harley Davidson rally and stopping at a bar full of Harley owners on a Yamaha rice rocket."

Yah, that's funny, except for the fact that you took pictures.....aside from the Liberty and yourself, you were the only 2 jeeps in the parking lot! I see a Chevy Blazer, a Chevy Dualy (sp?), another Chevy Pickup truck, a car of some sort which is definitely not a Jeep, and an old-time Jeep from like the 50's which isn't counted as a Jeep because it's the original and not the Chrysler-owned pieces of shit today.
In other words: You're an ass-clown!
Yah, tugging a 50,000 piece of shit off a stump is pretty funny, but the H2 was never really meant for off-road. It was meant for driving through buildings to rescue burning babies and stuff. The original Hummer would have turned your Jeep into Swiss cheese.
Not that I like Hummer, but I fucking hate Chrysler.....I own a Dodge Dakota whose transmission went out at 40,000 miles; and a multitude of other disfunctional abnormalities. Chrysler sucks Lee Iacoca's cock.

This whole Swift Boats Veterans for Truth thing is pissing me off. Lots of dem's are saying that the press is stearing away from the issues and this is a good diversion plan. However, I say at least John Kerry fucking went to Vietnam. Everybody knows signing up for the National Guard was demonstrating your pussy nature of getting out of Vietnam, which is what Bush did. And for those who bark back about me calling the guard pussies, my dad joined the guard to avoid 'Nam, and he was a pussy. I'm a pussy too, yet I haven't joined the Guard; but I'm definitely not going to Vietnam, not now, not after what happened last time I was there.

http://www.courier-journal.com/cjsp...n0826-2262.html

Green Baron on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 6:35 AM

Here's what I'm going to do now:
I'm not going to vote to re-elect the idiot son of a previous president who has failed in every single aspect of the presidency.
Can anyone really name 1 good thing this president has done? Just one? Because the economy, jobs, war, foreign relations, war on terrorism, medicare, environment, deficit, education is all worse off than it was 4 years ago. It's even worse off than 2 months after Sept. 11.
Bush is a puppet. A piece of shit who knows nothing and does nothing.
I don't like to endorse Kerry because, frankly, he's not my candidate of choice. But for God's sake...anything, ANYTHING is better than a Bush. And for anyone to speak out against Kerry's war record means they haven't compared them to Bush's. Bush is as much of a failure as president as he was in life. He's a piece of shit, cocksmoking, moron that needs to be impeached.
And here's what I'm gonna do.....not vote for him. Whether you vote for Kerry, Nader, or not at all, don't vote for him.
And I'd tell you what I'd do about this war.....immediate pull-out.
Bush's #2 reason (at the beginning of the war but has switched to #1) for this war was democracy. Then I say, put it to a vote! Listen to the masses. Iraqis don't want us there. Look at the fucking Olympians! They all agree....get the fuck out. These are well-respected individuals who do not fear their country and have publicly said if they weren't in Athens they would be with the resistance!
You want Democracy Bush? Put it to a fucking vote. The Iraqi's want us out...give them what they want. You haven't allowed them to elect their representatives yet....so where's the democracy? Where's the freedom?

Green Baron on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 6:43 AM

Rolling back the tax-cuts will help your pocket, because he's rolling them back for the wealthiest.....which isn't you. He's also rolling back tax breaks for companies who outsource, which will bring employment back to the states, which will provide jobs, which will give more money to the customers of your business, which will mean more revenues and more money for your pocket.
In addition, he's looking for internation relief effort in Iraq, which will drop the cost of the Iraqi war which currently stands at 134 billion dollars, which will put more money into the governments hands, allowing them to cut taxes more, putting more money in your pocket.
I'd rather take 10 % off my taxes in five years than a $300 check now.
It seems to me if monetary concerns are leaning you towards Bush, that the wise choice would be Kerry. After all, Bush destroyed the economy, which creates the money and puts value to the dollar.

Green Baron on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 7:49 AM

Here's a little blurb I typed up about Iraq. Yah, this stuff is old, but we're evaluating a president here and what he's done. Therefore, you examine the past.
A lot of this is also repitition from what was said before, but just because it isn't new, doesn't mean it isn't true.

Here’s the skinny on Iraq, and why this war is a LIE.

There were 3 principle reasons given prior to this war for reasons of invasion. I’ll list them in their order as the government indirectly labeled their priority according to how much they were discussed and referenced; and then I shall go through each and every one of them directly and indicate how they were either false, or definitely not a focus of the war.

#1 – Iraq is a threat (imminent or not, doesn’t matter) to the United States (the whole WMD/terrorism thing)
#2 – Saddam is an evil dictator
#3 – Freedom for the people/democracy

Obviously, the government has now switched gears and democracy for the people seems to prevail now; as Saddam is an afterthought and the government was plain wrong about the WMD.

So, here it goes….
#1 – Iraq is a threat to the United States
Iraq was contained by UN forces prior to the invasion; their air-force non-existent, their army heavily demoralized and denumerated from the embarrassment of the first Gulf war; and was complying with every UN sanction in its entirety. Iraq never had any proven connection with Al Queda, no terrorist involved in 9/11 came from Iraq, and Iraq had never….hold on, let me stress this, NEVER attacked the United States nor had any immediate plans to. And, the obvious, not possessing any Weapons of Mass Destruction thingy.
Information has since emerged that the evidence Bush was relying upon was from a very poor source (the Chalabi fella’s defectors), and Bush WAS EVEN TOLD this prior to his speeches for invasion. However, it failed to stop this administration from hyping the hell out of it in order to get their point across. The fact remains: Iraq surrounded, UN inspectors were in the country looking for potential threats; the nation of Iraq incapable of inflicting harm. This all; of course, is after the fact that there are countries that (especially at the time) posed more of a threat to the safety of American than Iraq.

#2 – Saddam is an evil dictator
This one is a tough one, as the clear answer is yes, he was. But was he as bad as the US made him out to be? The answer there would be an astounding no.
First off, the atrocities of Saddam.
Gassed his own people – Not entirely….he gassed Kurds. Kurds are nomadic populations who do not claim to be part of any of the Middle East Countries; instead, they wish to create their own country. In addition, the US was backing the Kurds financially and militarily following the first gulf war in an attempt to overthrow Saddam from within. Saddam warned the Kurds that he was going to attack them, yet US CIA operatives informed the Kurds the US would protect them, so they refused to leave the city they had captured. Saddam sent his missiles and the Kurds were killed. Where was the US protection? It seems as though the US withdrew from the agreement prior to the attack. This was because the US realized a Kurdish-ruled Iraq was an impossibility, a smart realization. However, it might have been nice to inform the Kurds of their spontaneous enlightenment. In addition, Saddam WARNED them, does a psychotic dictator warn the individuals he persecutes? Did Hitler? Of course, the answer is no. The US on the other hand….well; it failed to inform the Kurds of their decision to not protect them.
In addition, Kurds have been constantly killed, and gassed, by all nations they inhabit, including Syria, Iran, and Turkey! Why do we support Turkey when we call Saddam evil for gassing the Kurds? They did it too!
Saddam tortures – The United States has been allied with Saudi Arabia, a nation which Amnesty International rates as one of the worst for offenses against i

Green Baron on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 7:51 AM

its people. Nearly all the money in Saudi Arabia is shared between a handful of families. Saudi Arabia is one of the most tortuous, evil regimes that exists. Their offenses are far worse than Saddam ever was. In fact, Iraq wouldn’t even top most top-5 lists for brutal regimes. Saddam tortures? Yes. Worse than anyone? Hardly. The US was found to recently torture Iraqi and Afghanistan captives; just in case you’ve been locked in a closet for the last 6 months.
Saddam invaded Kuwait – do a quick study on Iraq’s reasons for invasion of Kuwait. You’ll see that their reasons are vastly superior than our own reasons to invade Iraq now. In addition, if Canada had committed the same acts against us, we would invade them.
Is Iraq better off without Saddam? The answer is NO. ABCnews and Time polled Iraqis on eight criteria. Only 1, education, was declared as better. 5 were worse: availability of goods, security, health care, Jobs, and electricity. 2 were unchanged: water quality and political situation.
Was Saddam bad? Yah. Was he THAT bad? No. Are Iraqis better off without him? No.

#3 – Freedom for Iraqi’s/democracy
Immediately following the war, the Iraqi council was appointed to govern Iraq. Every person on that council was appointed by the United States. Now, after “sovereignty,” the leader of Iraq was appointed by such council. Not a single election has been held, nor have true “Iraqis” had a voice in who governs them. The US military has free reign, can enter their homes, can question anybody or detain them, and can use deadly force when desired. Iraqis clearly want an end to occupation, but is the US government willing to put it to a vote? No. The only published paper that spoke out against the US government’s occupation of Iraq was shut down, an example of the US blocking both freedom of the press and freedom of speech in one punch. Is there any freedom in Iraq? No. Is there a democracy? No.

This administration has lied to you. It has failed you. It has failed to justify its reasons, aside from monetary, that led it to invade a country that posed no threat, was far better off prior to its invasion, and had more civil rights than nearly all its neighbors. The Iraqi people want an end to occupation, to the violence, to the terror that the US has brought to it. Please. It doesn’t matter who you vote for, as long as it isn’t the administration that has turned to world against us for a monetary cause. DON’T VOTE BUSH!

Marc on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 7:56 AM

I try to say away form politics on the website since I know I'll get a backlash by others but the Baron will definitely get a response from his posts anyway, so what the fuck.

Anyone who thinks "trickle-down economics" is a good plan is an idiot. First off, it sounds like you're getting peed on, because you are. Why do we give most the tax money back to the wealthiest who sometimes invest it sometimes don't It doesn't always get put back into the economy. And don't just fool yourself that since they make more their getting the same percentage back. Tehy're getting more. In the last tax cut (where we barrowed money from China to pay out) the wealthiest got 12% to the average 10% (that's a $1,000 to a $50,000 household... if you qualified). The people living paycheck to paycheck obviously need the money more for necessary items. In past preseidencies you can see the correlation of when the average does better, the wealth do their best. We're all interconnected.

I was originally just Anti-Bush, know I actually am pro-Kerry becuase I've seeked him out. For the Vietnam War debate (because Bush can't survive that) seek out his stances on YOUR issues.) Hey, maybe Bush is the best person for you, but until you know both sides stance on YOUR issues then you're dumb to vote, and especially to attack the other side.

You know that $87 Billion "flip-flop" thing Bush and all the Republicans tell you out? Waht they didn't tell you is that wehn Kerry originally voted for it, all the Republican (100 percent) voted against it. They later voted for it, and Kerry against it, when they added a bunch of "pork" (unnecessary expenses and items) to the bill. And most recently Bush has said he will veto this bill if the Democrats add the item of $1.7 billion for veterans healthcare. This whole billion vetoed for taking care of vets? Meanwhile Bush has cutback on veteran's healthcare while raising their prescription drug costs.

Did you see Halliburton hired a independent company to investigate their unsubstanciated financial claims? They have already found out 42% of the money has no claim or record. That over 4 Billion dollars. (That's Billion with a B) They go the no-bid contract. And the Army doesn't want to pay them because of this fiasco. But Halliburton has told the Army if they don't pay, they they stop paying their sub-contracters and the troops won't get food and other supplies. In a time of war these bastards are profiteering and using the welfare of our troops to do so.

Okay, bring on the onslaught of Kerry-hate on me. I might be a hippie-liberal douche but it's better than being an (un)passionate conservative. I mean a hippie might smoke weed and then grow up. But a coke-head and alcoholic will sell America piece by piece for another hit.

Marc and Issac- Okay, I'm getting in on this. I agree with you...partially. For one thing, learn how to type Marc. You might not think it matters, but a literate person is much more persuasive in arguments than an illiterate one. Issac- passion is good, but it needs to tempered by reason. Saying the Iraqi people are better off without Saddam because they say so, is like saying a married man is happier because he says so. People don't always think straight, especially after coming out of abusive and overbearing relationships (whether or not it's with a lady or a dictator). You guys make some good points, but it seems more like knee-jerk reactions than well thought out arguments. Just like the rebuttles we are about to hear.

I can understand the occasional error here and there, to err is human. However, when I read your posts and question if a 2nd grader wrote this crap, makes it quite pathetic.

I am starting to question now if elliekay used such horrible grammar/spelling in order to make you feel better.

I'm outtie fags.

Green Baron on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 8:58 AM

I wasn't going to respond back...but I will anyway.
It doesn't matter if they really ARE better off or not, what matters is that's what they THINK they are. And if Bush is truly wanting a democracy, and the majority of the Iraqis want the US gone and that they are worse off with them there, then abide by the majoral vote and get out of dodge.

Green Baron on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 9:05 AM

I just thought of a great example for my last post that I just couldn't hold back:

Like for instance, if Bush wins the election, it doesn't matter if we'd be beter off with Kerry, we THOUGHT that we would be better off with Bush. Therefore, this is a so-called "democracy", and we must abide by the people's wishes.

Green Baron on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 9:49 AM

everyone knows I was joking about the naked pictures for a gmail account right? Because Ebay has about a million of them up for grabs without a single bid on most of them. They're free, just ask.

I wished Larry Brown would have punched that Fag head coach from spain.

Brock on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 1:30 PM

Man, while I'm doing work in the morning, the Baron and Marcus are circle-jerkin' it on Kerry's face. For the love of god! Please make your posts more succinct!

Succinct: marked by compact precise expression without wasted words

With that in mind, I'll rebuttal the "trickle-down" complaint. I am a small business owner, yup.. I cut grass, or at least my brothers do, and I make money. Thanks to G.W.'s "only-for-rich" tax-cut, I saved nearly $300 on last years taxes, and expect to save more thisyear when the company buys new equipment. Last I looked, I wasn't a millionare, but the money I am saving is going back into my business, patroning bars, and to my brothers (TRICKLE-DOWN). I don't want to void my complaint before, so I'll leave it at that.

Green Baron on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 1:56 PM

Oh, and I put my wrong address for e-mail above,
It's
isaac.houston(at)gmail(dot)com
If you want one of those fantastic invites, just let me know. They make great stocking stuffers!

And Brock, Kerry doesn't want to roll back your tax cut like I said before. He wants to roll back the tax cuts for those making more than 100,000 dollars a year. I saved money on my taxes too, but my 300 dollars wasn't nearly as helpful to me as Bill Gates, Ross Perot, and good ol' GW.'s savings in the thousands (and perhaps millions). Especially when I consider the fact that these tax cuts for the wealthiest mean my $300 will just be going back to the government in 5 years time 10-fold.
I really don't agree with the trickle-down horseshit, I agree with Marc, but honestly, finding proof for that would be difficult. It's pretty well hidden behind a lagging or booming economy.

Jay on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 2:10 PM

Yes Wes. I mispoke when I said "typing."

Brock on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 2:14 PM

Yup Bill Gates, Ross Perot, and John Kerry got bigger tax cuts because they PAY MORE TAXES! Rolling back tax cuts for only the wealthy is horse-shit, because the small business tax cuts are going to be hacked in Kerry's communist, give-money to bums economic policy.

Speaking of the economy... where is this depression Democrats speak of? I see development all over the place, poor neighboorhoods being cleaned up, businesses starting... throw numbers out all you want, both sides like to, but when I walk around and see... I see growth. Look at Louisville! Burgeoning bar scenes, new home development. If the economy is in such dire straights, then why is this happening. Fuck the economy! Its just a word, go out and spend your money, earn some money, buy a house, live the American F-in' dream with a little dog in your lap!

Green Baron on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 2:39 PM

I don't know what you pay in taxes, but BEFORE the tax cut, Ross Perot revealed he paid 8% of taxes. After the tax cut.....well, you see where I'm goin'. I'm sure you paid more than that.

If he's payin' 8% of his income and I'm paying 25% of mine, I think I am paying more. Not amount wise, but out of my ass wise.

In addition, Kerry is hardly going after small business.
Here, from his own web site
http://www.johnkerry.com/issues/economy/
"Cut Middle-Class Taxes To Raise Middle-Class Incomes
When John Kerry is president, middle-class taxes will go down. Ninety-eight percent of all Americans and 99 percent of American businesses will get a tax cut under the Kerry-Edwards plan."

That's his plan. You're middle class, your taxes will go down. In addition, your business might even get a bigger tax cut. He's going after the super-rich. The Ross Perot's who are making half a billion a year and paying 8% taxes. I'm making 25,000, and 23% goes to taxes. Fuck that. Fuck Bush. Fuck him in his aching ass.

I don't want to sound like a Kerry supporter, the only reason I'm voting for him is to give aid to the removal of our current president. Who knows if what he promises will really come true for you. What I am saying is Bush is a fucking war-mongering fuck who cares nothing of the little-man and the american dream. He's done nothing, absolutely nothing, to improve america. There might be improvements, but there were improvements in FDR's time as well, with millions unemployed. There are more people who need a job. The world fucking hates us. And Bush sold us and the Iraqis out to corporate fucks. 2 US soldiers die everyday in a country that doesn't want us there. I don't care who you vote for, but a vote for Bush means you support this!

mowgli on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 2:41 PM

any of you fuckers going to trivia tonight at o'sheas?

Brock on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 2:51 PM

Its almost getting to the point where I want to vote for Bush just to spite the haters. I've never seen people get so mind-boggling red over things they are not even a part of... wait... maybe UofL and UK fans, but thats a game. All this whining is coming from spoiled rich kids who have nothing better to do than bitch. Keep it up, it just makes me that much more certain I don't want a man driven into office on the backs of screaming babies.

Marc on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 3:35 PM

Firstly, sorry for this long-ass post.

Brock your last statement can be applied to both sides of the table. None of us are personally living in squalor. Bush supporters do just as much bitching, if not more. How come Bush/Chenney make the public that come to their speeches sign a loyalty agreement to vote for them. Whereas Kerry, Edwards, Teresa Heinz-Kerry, and even Nader will take on hecklers.

I don't agree with the other side on a lot of issues, but I let them talk to hear what they're gonna say and not talk over them and take some mundane detail to manipulate or exploit. Booing over someone to not let others hear them in just as bad.

I know you disagree with everything I say, and I'm not trying to change your mind because you think you're right...and so do I. Talking about the actual issues can change minds or expand ideas and thoughts to make both sides more centrist. I didn't like this President and was scared when he came into office, but I did give him the benefit of the doubt and then he loss that in my mind. All I ask is if, I said "if" Kerry is elected you might want to let him show you what he can do before you jump all over him... that'll be Ann Coulter's job again. It is easier to judge things in the past than in the future. I mean remember a lot of people said Clinton's economic package would cause a recession in 1993, it didn't. I'd like to state something positive for the other side that was first objected to, but admittedly couldn't think of a great example but that is my fault, and not an attack on the other side.

So one cannot project Kerry will bring economic doomsday just like not all the burden can be places on the Bush administration (even though I do personally believe that a lot of blame can be put on them.) If we're going to continue to talk politics unless Philco kills our access, one succession would be to be topic-based not candidate-based or attacks. Discussion on candidates ideas on these issued could be discussed but YOUR ideas should be the focus. Kerry doesn't represent everybody on one side and Bush doesn't support everyone on the other. I mean even people who say out of the political arena have their own ideas on: health care, gay marriage, religion, war, taxes, welfare, prescription drugs, small business, etc. You can refence others but if you simple bounce their ideas as your own then you lose your own voice. Those are my thoughts, What are yours?

adrian on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 7:06 PM

Would someone please start a new post (Phil or Jay)

Brock on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 8:26 PM

I have a question for Adrian: Do you have anything useful to say? I know you have a brain man! It doesn't even have anything to do with politics... sports, humor, movies, bitches... come up with something creative!

Why are you tugging on Phil's and Jay's nuts to come up with something? Man up and use that noggin you fill with beer!

Brock on Thursday, August 26, 2004 at 8:39 PM

With that said...

Marc, thank you for the voice of reason (who thought I'd be saying that?). I absolutely agree that bashing the candidate doesn't accomplish anything. However, the previous comments have solely been hate! Mainly directed at the current president. So with Mr. Marcus Brody's well laid out guidelines, I begin with this:

Healthcare - Universal healthcare, sounds nice, Canada must be brilliant, yet it's not all glamour like it sounds. With cheaper cost, you get lesser quality. Yes, everyone gets treated, but everyone has to sit for hours to get a runny nose looked at or a bullethole in the head sewed up. I'm not saying our healthcare system is good, it sucks, but just providing universal healthcare and jacking up the taxes to pay for it isn't going to work... the current system we have works, but its corrupted. The purpose of government (and this will be a recurring theme in my arguments) is to provide oversight and regulation to private enterprise. Capitalist societies unfortunately do not work well in the welfare system without some prodding. Therefore, you have to hold these freakin' HMOs in check with some stiff-ass regulations. Think of it as imposing a salary cap for you sports fans. If teams/companies work things right, they can flourish under the caps, and all those Yankees/Columbia/HCA's will squeeze down.

Now I don't claim to be an expert on healthcare issues, but this is my general take on the topic, so feel free to point out holes and weaknesses, but only if you provide a viable alternative.

There you go.
"That's my opinion, but I could be wrong."

adrian on Friday, August 27, 2004 at 5:07 AM

Brock, when I said would Phil or Jay to start a new post, I meant to for them to start a new section to post in because they are the only nattysci member who can create a new thread you fucking cock sucking whore.

And I'm outty

Wrecking Crew on Friday, August 27, 2004 at 5:07 AM

I agree with adrian. You are all long winded dumbfucks who have way too much time on your hands. So anything going on this weekend? Do I get to make another trip to the ER?

Bigworm on Friday, August 27, 2004 at 7:54 AM

Abby is wanting to go the fair today so I am sure I will be there for sometime (for some reason she loves fair food). Anything going on after that I am game.

Here is a good political joke someone sent me today.

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."
"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?" "Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost.

Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded,! "You must be a democrat." "I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?" "Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your
problem.

You're in exactly the same position you were in before we
met but, somehow, now it's my fault."


Green Baron on Friday, August 27, 2004 at 8:21 AM

Yes, I'm attacking the president. It's hate. Sorry, but I think I hate someone for dragging us into a war we didn't need, want, or should have gone into. In addition, nearly 1000 of our soldier's lives are dead, and has he done anything at all what he promised when going in there? No.
Yah, I hate Bush. Maybe you don't like people hating him, but it's a fact that what he's done is turn the world against us, and for good reason. Perhaps it's a fact you choose not to accept.
But at least I limit my personal attacks to the man responsible, and not to the individual who's upset about it.

Brock on Friday, August 27, 2004 at 8:32 AM

Adrian, you ass-grabbing transsexual, I meant for you to change the subject!

Burket, no one is as long-winded as you when it comes to the Red Sox, gays, and fat people. Of course we have too much time on our hands, thats what a salary is for!

Jay on Friday, August 27, 2004 at 3:58 PM

Hero (Jet Li, not Dustin Hoffman) is the most amazing movie ever. The cinematography and directing were outstanding. It is a very deep movie. It doesn't go very fast, but its depth more than makes up for it. There are quite a few action sequences, however they are all fairly short. They are not even the main focus of the movie. If you want to think and feel, you'll love it. Adrian, you would probably just call it gay.

Is that guy related to the Trinity Brohms?

Brock on Wednesday, September 01, 2004 at 11:09 AM

My boss said he saw an article about this yesterday. Apparently the police found the guy sleeping it off in bed completely covered in blood. Now that's pretty hammered if you don't notice your buddy's severed corpse spewing blood all over you.

Jay on Wednesday, September 01, 2004 at 11:17 AM

She said she is in no way related to Kelly. Although her name is Kristen. And what do you mean I'm safe. Would having Kellie's sister be a bad thing.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, September 01, 2004 at 1:12 PM

I even heard about the story on Bob and Tom. I think the guy went to St Bernard, and I'm pretty sure the other Brohms are from tehre too. Of course I could just be makuing shit up too.

Anyone up for Hooter's tonight, give me a call.

i might be up for heading up there and getting some food or something around seven though, so give me a call.

stew on Thursday, September 02, 2004 at 5:20 PM

Is anyone doing anything tomorrow? I have been living under a fucking rock for like 3 weeks now and have an intense case of cabin fever. Plus I'm having a hard time waiting for Sunday. NCAA 2005 only partially satisfies my craving for college football. Time for me to watch the RNC or more likely, "The Girl Next Door"...Elisha Cuthbert...MMMM!
