I would like to request that people please stop saying "Thanks for playing." or some such. I know there is an overwhelming compulsion to add that as your final rim shot to the rhythm of a comment, but please use something else. I just don't think I can take it much longer, but hey, thanks for playing.See, don't you just want to grab me by the hair and slam my face into my keyboard? I know - me too.5678tyuihgfhkjlvcbn Ouch!
It's called a tagline and it's a real art form, but few people do it well.After Shakespeare came up with stuff like "The play's the thing wherein we'll catch the conscience of the king", it went downhill in a hurry. Around here, people think they're being witty when witless is closer to it.
Google, it's your friend.
"You could use some help with reading comprehension."I do miss the formerly ubiquitous: "Duh" LOL
I would request people stop saying "but Bush did it too", but then our liberal commenters wouldn't have much left to contribute to the debate.
Personally, I could do without 'This post removed by a blog administrator.'Yeah, ha ha ha.
FenI agree. It's as if they think that I think it's OK if a conservative does it. Whatever it is. It's a projection. Liberals really do go around accusing conservatives of doing that for which they give liberals a pass. Conservatives think if it's wrong it's wrong no matter who does it. That's why conservatives appear to be bringing a knife to a gun fight. What is not shown is that karma will eventually trump. And for a tag line. Karma's a real dog eat bitch.
I also hate the tagline "You'll eat it and you'll like it, little man", but I only heard my dad say that when I was a kid, so now it rarely comes up, just during the nights when I wake up in a sweat, so...

Your call is very important to us.
This call may be recorded for training porpoises.
The kids were talking about the songs that play on ice cream trucks and there sure were some strange ones, the Blue Peter theme song, Johnny Briggs theme, the Colonel Bogey March, and then someone linked a video of Hitler ice cream truck that put me in stitches the way it trundles off and fades away uneventfully as if it were normal.
So this is where y'all hang out. I wondered what was up with all these stupid pictures. This is like listening to high school kids gossiping.Karma's a real dog eat bitch. Sad. Another "Obama did it too." But without that you wouldn't have much left to contribute to the debate.
WEll if I had a bedtime it would be past it, and I don't have any gripes.Except what are you doing here "leslyn"?There are times when "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all" works for me.Are you Jeremy in drag?
Shoot. I thought it was cute. Karma really is a bitch.
Just dropped by to say hi to a good looking blue eyed guy, you know who you are. Now that was nice wasn't it? See liberals are friendly.
JAL, I'm just hanging out with all the nice folks here and chit-chatting. You're too stupid to understand their meaning because they write on a higher plane.

"See liberals are friendly."Do you think I can't see that shiny bowie knife you're holding next to your thigh. Put it down...slowly, and we can talk about your violence issues and the deviousness that's inherent in your species.
Aw now, it's just a little knife, won't hurt you much. Or you could try to take it from me....
Once during halftime at a roller derby, I was next to Dylan at the urinals, and he started talking my ear off. Of course, I couldn't understand a word he said, so I just said: "No thanks. I'm good". Which is the safest thing to say if you are drunk enough to say anything at a urinal.
Talking at a urinal in an inibriated state could be weird. Women usually just politely ask the lady in the next stall if she has an extra toilet tissue in there and to kindly please pass it under the stall wall.
Yes, I know. I got asked for a spare square by a lady in the next stall in a unisex restroom once. I wrote my phone number on it and passed it over.
I'll put it another way.In that Corporations don't pay taxes insofar as their customers do (due) via higher prices, America allows China to do what China does.Until we don't.Is that not precisely clear enough?
It's kinda like a sending a smoke signal.
Un Buckley, what happens when we don't?
"You'll eat it and you'll like it, little man"That would be a great trade name for a dog food product aimed at finicky eaters.Such an approach won't work for cats, however. To convince it cat you've got to work on his conscience.
And speaking of the French,this horn is quite Nice.
In deed, Parabuckley. Quite nice. The perfect lullaby to send me off to dreams of chocolate chip tulips and rivers of moscato.
Reading Instapudit this morning. I'm wondering if teh won is going to be soundly spanked instead of just defeated.
My wife's tulips have survived the late April wet snow quite nicely. They folded themselves up as they are wont to do, and looked quite beautiful in the process. We took pictures of them in this state. Nature is cool.Seeing RedIf the loony left's hysterical response to people needing ID to vote isn't convincing enough!!!Cheating, lying, deceiving, twisting. All ready tools in their tool belt.
My wife planted tulips in our back yard, and they do well year after year. This year a single, brilliantly red tulip, apparently a volunteer, appeared in our front yard. No idea how it got there. Nature is, indeed, cool.
From Insta this morning..I also love the way he [Obama] talks about..When some here yesterday expressed skepticism about "wingers" sudden concern for the presidents safety, ie the Secret Service flap, might that skepticism be fueled by "wingers" always seeming to express love for him when they mean something else.I don't know if I'm making myself understood.In a climate where derision is expressed by saying how much you "love" someone or something.. isn't that a recipe for mutually assured misunderstanding? For example.. the idea that I dont want my president physically hurt, by anybody, seems to me to be a pretty basic, civic, no frills vanilla sentiment.. and to have it questioned gives me a very pessimistic pause..If we cannot agree that our intention, in expressing concern for the presidents safety, is genuine.. just what can we possibly have any agreement on?And why would you even want to talk to someone like that?
Lem, I understand your point, and I agree with you RE: the misuse of verbs in that casual, sarcastic fashion. It cheapens English. Better to use them accurately, as in saying "Obama loves dog".
I remember when Reagan was shot.. everybody I knew expressed shock and concern basic human traits.. and I lived in Mass.. true blue.I dont know where the line is anymore.
If we cannot agree that our intention, in expressing concern for the president's safety, is genuine. . .just what can we have any possible agreement on?Nothing, Lem. And that's the poisoned fruit of Bush v Gore. Look, I take a back seat to no one in my hatred of Obama, and nothing would make me happier than to see him led out of the Oval Office in chains, but he is the head of state and deserves / requires the best protection. While the bestial part of my brain would rejoice if he were killed, the rational part realizes it would be an awful, destabilizing event that this country cannot afford.After 8 years of BDS, I don't believe a substantial portion of the left feel the same way. They hate Bush, even now. Had Dubya been killed, I would bet a large amount of money you'd see cheering crowds in many of the major cities.So because they loathe him, the think we feel the same way about Obama. They can't believe we wouldn't rejoice at his death, because they'd cheer the death of Bush.And I don't see any way back.
I mean, just in term of the sake of brevity.. most things are left w/o saying.. like 'I dont want my president to get hurt'.A day is coming when all reading communication will be the fine print.. (thats where you find 'I dont want my president to get hurt') because nothing will matter or be cared about.
"It's kinda like a sending a smoke signal."You passed gas, too?
"So this is where y'all hang out. I wondered what was up with all these stupid pictures. This is like listening to high school kids gossiping."The beagle has landed.
It is kind of remarkable the extent to which we speak of "Obama" and the "Obama campaign" rather than "the Democrats."
Thank you for your patience.
I would like to request that people please stop saying "Thanks for playing." or some such.Cant help think there is a connection between this request and my rant.I do seem to recall bagoh20 asking people to say something, notify that they were leaving.. I dont recall his exact words.
leslyn: Another "Obama did it too." But without that you wouldn't have much left to contribute to the debate.Wow. Leslyn really does live in an alternate universe. And thanks for plagiarizing my 10:03 comment.
Lem, my request had nothing to do with you or anyone in particular. I have just seen that phrase too many times, and I want to avoid needing to resort to violence like a stern verbal put-down of anyone's mother.Also, I didn't ask that people say they were leaving. I think I just expressed how weird it was that we have conversations that sometimes just end up hanging in the air, with the participants disappearing like the guys at the end of the marching column during an ambush. This comment to you probably will be like that. Lem?... Lem?... Oh my God, they got Lem!
I stopped by to see Ann's post about Google's clever [search] zipper. But now I'm standing here with my fly open. Pretty embarrassing, too.
Race riot in Alabama.Not good. Eric Holder is a fuckwit. No word from the President if the assailants look like his son.
This comment to you probably will be like that. Lem?... Lem?... Oh my God, they got Lem!I'm back!thats a radio/tv one
