Well lookie here. The trembling, filthy mutt bleating out his filthy messages for the entire day. And he's so enraged lately too. What's the matter, Fido? Did that deranged malignant narcissist Stanker Steve take your place in the dog house? LMAO
Kongo February 18, 2013 at 11:56 PM
Where'd you libbie nutters dig up this libbie weeper "Darren"? What a filthy little creep he is. LMAO

Good call, Sanchez.
FIFA February 19, 2013 at 12:05 AM

FIFA February 19, 2013 at 12:06 AM

I think that JustABill has a strange Venezuela thing going on. Do you reckon that Mr. Chavez refused to fill his oil tank or sumpin?

Anyone who supports the 2nd ammendment is a gun nut to the mindless left.

There are those here who do not like firearms or their owners, who will be great at this type of self defense. It would be their very first reaction! Its for women but it suits them nonetheless. "What To Do If You Are Attacked These tips are designed to help you protect yourself on campus, in town, at your home, or while you travel. These are preventative tips and are designed to instruct you in crime prevention tactics. : Be realistic about your ability to protect yourself. : Your instinct may be to scream, go ahead! : If your life is in danger, passive resistance may be your best defense. : Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating. : Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone." The Hoplophobe Self Defense Course. First reactions are priceless. Run or wet yourself. http://www.uccs.edu/pusafety/what-to-do-if-you-are-attacked-.html

Gun advocates are just scared little insecure peons who are frightened of the dark..and they use guns to help them fill a void of inadequacy and weakness inside of them. Thing is it does not make you any tougher or scary...it just makes you a frightened, pitiful little peon with a gun. No matter how many weapons you all own...you will still be scared, spineless losers who live in fear of your own shadows...sad and pathetic

A revolutionary and a terrorist are not he same thing. Terrorists murder civilians to draw attention to their cause and try to break the resolve of their enemy. George Washington was not a terrorist; However, he was a traitor to the British. Had we lost, he would have been hanged.
Chris W February 19, 2013 at 11:15 AM
These people are just running wild. Forget the second amendment issues, how about the fourth? http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2020373291_westneat17xml.html
Doug February 19, 2013 at 12:12 PM
What's pathetic is false assumptions by the mindless. You don't even have to own a gun to be a 2nd ammendment advocate, or even an NRA member. The naive and complacent also make easy victims. Don't be so naive and complacent.. Ajnd remember, magazine size does not matter.. (which has be the "feel good"talk of the mindless for the past few weeks.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYYWXZ__1X0

I made no reference to race. Why do they have to be black?
CP February 19, 2013 at 02:39 PM
BTW Ilk i went to schools that were majority black first half of my life. So no I'm not afraid of anyone. In fact i can take care of myself if i needed to. I already have. I'd pay to see you in Whitelock after dark.
CP February 19, 2013 at 02:42 PM
Not a Republican tough guy. Very successful in what i do. As for my kids at least i breed unlike your buggery kind. All talk. Care to tell me all this face to face? I'll pay you.
1ke February 19, 2013 at 02:49 PM
And what'll you do, CP? Pop tool? Bang him in his face? Make him dance on the end of a rope? Play loud music and hook up electrical wires? Thanks for your service!
CP February 19, 2013 at 02:52 PM
I do not own a gun. Would love to see what you would if someone broke in your house while you were sleeping. Hide in the closet? lol
CP February 19, 2013 at 03:01 PM
Make him play tiddlywinks!
CP February 19, 2013 at 04:27 PM
Steve "LOL The Americans didn't win the War of 1812. The British/Canadians did. What school did you attend?" Public school education? The main objectives were to stop the British harassment of our trade ships, capturing sailors and pressing them into British service, and the British supported the Indians. All of those objectives were accomplished. Canada was not an objective.
Steve February 19, 2013 at 04:29 PM
"Would love to see what you would if someone broke in your house while you were sleeping." LOL They would have to get past my two GSD's.
Steve February 19, 2013 at 04:35 PM
We invaded Canada. What do you mean it wasn't an objective? We got our asses handed to us. They burned our Capital for Chrissakes, captured Detroit and most of Northern Ohio. They kicked our asses in 1778 when we tried to invade Canada. You don't hear much about that war thought. I guess because it was so short lived.
CP February 19, 2013 at 04:48 PM
Annexation was a perception. Sure the US lost militarily in most battles. But we completed the main objectives.
1ke February 20, 2013 at 05:38 PM
If you were on Whitelock, you were there to be a corrupt cop or to cop dope. Which cop is it, CP? Probably both.
Steve February 22, 2013 at 07:42 PM
No we didn't not at all. What objectives did we complete?

Criminals will break these laws too.
Chris W February 23, 2013 at 12:01 AM
We kicked their arse in New Orleans.
FIFA February 23, 2013 at 12:05 AM
Simply profound, why do they call them "criminals"?
Steve February 23, 2013 at 12:45 AM
No we didn't. The British forgot their ladders and they couldn't climb over the breastments so they left. When I was down in NOLA for the Super Bowl I decided to give my Liver a rest so I went for a tour of the New Orleans Historical Collection. They are celebrating their part in the War Of 1812 and they had a huge exhibit about the campaign.
