    Breaking News! Bobbys hired Giuliani to argue his plea to Chef Justice Scot.

    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    This is true. Bobbys is a pretty good sock puppet. I hope the crime warrants only a 30 day suspension. Sure would suck if more than that.

    Nope. Reflexive hatred for cowardly sock-puppetry, even trial-balloon sock-puppetry. Plus distain for Americans who wear Canadian disguise to cover their true nationality.

    If you didn't do it, then I will apologize. But now that you have mentioned that you have done it, how am I to trust you that you didn't?

    P.s. - incorrect application of the word 'jingoism', too. Just sayin'...
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    I'll stick with that word.

    jin·go·ism


    /ˈjiNGɡōˌizəm/


    noun


    • 1.extreme patriotism, especially in the form of aggressive or warlike foreign policy



    As for the rest... it's a joke, son. Just like it was when I said bubbles was my sock-puppet.

    After a regular here tells me to "STFU", Bobby in comparison was a gentleman, banned for disagreement from the left, probably yes, the way the left works, demonize and shut them up, nothing else left.

    woodpile, at times bobbys has been a right pr@ck to me, and I can't think of a single time when he's accurately described what I think. Neither when replying to one of my posts, or when he takes out his brush and says something about "Libs" thinking this or that. Not once has he got it right. And it's not exactly because I, or "Libs," are as incapable of writing clearly as he pretends to be.Bobbys got banned, it seems, for doing something beyond his usual brand of rudeness. Not because "the left" disagreed with him, or worked to demonize and shut him up.

    That was me. On another thread I responded to your post by inviting you to either address the topic or STFU. I then placed you on my "ignore" list.

    Your Ignore list is meaningless to me after being ignored by a woman for going on 50 years, try something else.

    Bobbys was protesting being stalked. Took the law in his own hands, i don’t think he relates to being a tattletale. He has one of the best senses of humor in this bunch, but it’s lack of vitriol made it hard for some to recognize.
