time to feed the hungry trolls

As I recognize that this site wouldn’t be anywhere near as interesting without its community of dedicated, hate-filled, Bush-loving, “9/11” chanting trolls, I thought that I’d make them a little thank you gift and post this attack against the Obama/Biden ticket by Rudy Giuliani… Thank you for all your hard work, guys…. Enjoy.

    Mark, that’s the best you could come up with? What a zinger!

    Face it, Rudy hit you where it hurts…with facts and the truth.
    “”His rise is remarkable in its own right. It’s the kind of thing that could happen only in America. But he’s never run a city, never run a state, never run a business. He’s never had to lead people in crisis. This is not a personal attack. It’s a statement of fact: Barack Obama has never led anything.” — Rudy Giuliani”

    My feelings are a little hurt here, Mark. What about this sites dedicated, hate-filled, Bush-GOOFING, “9/11″chanting troll…I’m speaking of myself of course. Posting this video was a little for me too wasn’t it? I hope that was an unintended slight.

    Anyway, I loved the Giuliani speech. It really helps energize the Republican base, and that should put them only about 20% short of enough votes to win. Independents and former Republicans are going to decide this election, and they are the ones who have been driven away from the GOP recently because of guys like Giuliani. So I say put that jackass front and center. If the convention planners had any real sense, they would have hid him in the same bunker they had Dubya speak from the other night.

    I feel bad for the citizens of St. Paul, because personally I’m afraid to be in the same city with that guy. Everywhere he goes there are major terrorist attacks. First, it was NYC on 9/11. Then when he showed up in London right before 7/7/05 to do some ‘security consulting’ they had those bombings in the Underground stations. This guy is a jinx! He’s some sort of terrorist magnet! We need to make him mayor of Bagdad so they can be drawn to him there in that city, and our troops there can then take ’em out.

    It’s good to see that the Republicans have finally figured out that they need hot women at their conventions, and I mean besides the prostitutes in the lobby. I’m talking about in front of the cameras. I don’t know what took ’em so long to figure that out though. I guess it’s just that it doesn’t come natural to them.

    Listen…any speech where Giuliani doesn’t make thinly veiled threats against the family members of his rivals is a good speech. So stop being so negative, Mark. Things are looking up.

    I am amazed to hear this same time of speech over and over again about how Obama has no executive experience.

    How many states, cities, or businesses has McCain run?

    W had a lot of experience in these areas and that has really worked out, right?

    Ytown, you ever worked in public housing? Or in low income communities doing anything positive. Or attempting to make positive change?

    Community organizing is dealing with real people in real crisis. Many of which are brought on by selfish “I got mine, you get your own” policies and attitudes.

    Ian, what does that have to do with Rudy’s speech or Obama’s experience?

    Ian I am sure you are full of compassion and volunteer your time and are next in line for a sainthood, however you don’t know me and have no idea about my life experience or volunteerism. Let’s stick to the topic.

    By the way, yes I have done volunteer work in low-income communitites. I can give you a list if you would like, but I don’t think it really necesary. Have you assisted the less fortunate?

    ytown, it looked to me like you offered him a list and he accepted your offer.

    On the other hand, it sounded to me like Giuliani said last night that Democrats hesitate to use the phrase “Islamic terrorists” because identifying terrorists as Muslim was an insult to the terrorists.
    Is he saying that they’d be better terrorists if they weren’t also Muslims?

    Why would he make hurting the terrorists’ feelings such a talking point anyway?

    Is the phrase “Christian conservatives” insulting to Christians, or conservatives?

    Ytown, Ian called your bluff. I think you should have used your usual dodge of pretending to ignore. I think we both know there is no list to be shared, ytown. You are about as selfless and giving as I am. The closest thing to charity guys like us ever do is rooting for the Detroit Lions.

    You guys are so smart, you got me pegged, think you know everything don’t you? Robert you are not as smart as you think you are, even though you try to hide it with your self-depricating comments on how stupid, and selfish you are.

    You guys got me. I haven’t bluffed yet and I don’t volunteer info without the intention of supplying it. I couldn’t do it earlier, because unlike many of you I have a job. It is now lunch so here it goes:

    Christmas in April Ann Arbor 92-95
    Make a Difference Day Phoenix 95-99
    Assist Food Gatherers Ann Arbor Once per year 00-07

    Enviroment Michigan Monthly contribution
    Donate Salvation Army Ann Arbor twice a year-ish (cleaning days)
    Donate bottles Ypsi High Tennis team collection

    I may have others that I don’t focus on, I think there is not enough giving in this country(including myself). I know that I am no Mother Theresa, however, I do what I can with two young kids in a struggling economy.

    Many of you think you know me or my kind, don’t be too quick to judge others with differing viewpoints. My intention in the beginning of this blog was to express my opinion. I was instantly attacked because I didn’t agree with the liberal makeup of this site. I, in turn, went on the offensive. I’m not saying it was right, but that’s what happened.
    This has gotten ugly at times, however I do enjoy reading other viewpoints and I like to keep informed of local Ypsi happenings, so I read Marks site. I will continue to read it and use his coupons.

    Good enough Ian and Robert and Shitty Photographer?

    Settle down, ytown. It’s all good. In fact, I just won a bet that I could get you to post your list. And thanks for trying to defend me against myself, but it actually is true that I am stupid and selfish, and I am only just smart enough to know it.

    I don’t mind Ytown’s not-liberal views, but the constant immature sniping is tedious. I’ve learned nothing from his “viewpoint” except that he likes to taunt and insult others. An anger problem methinks. I hope people will start to just ignore.

    More to the point of this post, I can’t believe, after 8 years of GWB, that we’re questioning the leadership potential of any of the candidates. And I can’t believe I heard “drill baby drill”…

    I believed it. I’m suprised they didn’t say “Drill first, ask questions later” or “Kick their ass, take their gas.”

  16. Posted September 4, 2008 at 12:50 pm | Permalink

    Remember when Giuliani was the front-runner? Here in NYC, he was quite unpopular by the time he left office. We’d gotten to know that mean, corrupt, hypocritical blowhard all too well. Once the rest of the country got to know him too, they didn’t like him either. Away with him!

    Robert, you shouldn’t accept the bet. You’re not clever or persuasive enough to convince me to give my list. I gave it because I said I would. There you go taking credit for things that aren’t yours.

    kjc, we are in agreement!
    “but the constant immature sniping is tedious”, I agree with this, belive it or not, many of my posts were not written by me. It was someone else using my name. Just to prove a point I will login using your name.

    I would have bet you would claim it was your own choice too if I had been quick enough to have thought of it. I expected you to start pretending you didn’t write some of your posts too.

    Of course feel free to use my name to post your comments. Everyone already has me on ‘ignore’ so they won’t have to make any changes.

    “Ian , who the hell are you?”

    I am a quiet and rather sad lad who works for an employment agency and sings in a band called Joy Division. I am known for my quiet and awkward demeanor, as well as a unique dancing style reminiscent of epileptic seizures I experience, sometimes even on stage. The resemblance is such that audience members sometimes are uncertain if I am dancing or having a seizure; there have been several incidents where I collapsed and had to be helped off stage.

    My writing is filled with imagery of emotional isolation, death, alienation, and urban decay.

    Great response from Obama campaign manager David Plouffe:

    …Both Rudy Giuliani and Sarah Palin specifically mocked Barack’s experience as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago more than two decades ago, where he worked with people who had lost jobs and been left behind when the local steel plants closed.

    Let’s clarify something for them right now.

    Community organizing is how ordinary people respond to out-of-touch politicians and their failed policies…

    The integrity of the discourse on this site is definitely lost if people continue to misrepresent their identity by posting using others’ names.

    You and I have that in common too, ytown. I don’t know about you, but I kinda like some of the things my cynicism does for me. I especially like how it plays out in the bedroom. Cynical sex is the bomb!

    Unfortunately, she hasn’t had the pleasure, ytown. Cynicism doesn’t play well with beauty queens for some reason. I do a lot better with roller derby girls.

    Palin’s Speech Raises Big Money… For Obama

  34. Oliva
    Posted September 4, 2008 at 9:32 pm | Permalink

    Oh, thank you, Kurt–first smile I’ve managed in about a day.

    Got glum about that Palin, bewilderment about this made-up world of ours.

    But to tonight, the theme of McCain’s speech being “Peace” (subtitle something like “Keeping America Safe and Secure”). Does that ring a bell? Arial Sharon ran on the same message. Didn’t help him ultimately in life, but sickeningly he got elected being a vile warmonger cynically running on the message “Peace,” with that pretty little dove in his ads . . .

    Speaking of cynicism and sex, I called my girlfriend the other day and said “I want to come over and make love to you so badly.” She responded, “Well, at least you’re not overestimating yourself.”

    Seriously though, Mark. I went through and read some of your old posts regarding trolls. I didn’t realize that there was so much ‘history’ there. Now I see why it is such a sensitive issue for you. Whatever happened to Jared and Mike? Have you ever talked to them again?

    I’ve had to distance myself from some of my neo-con pals, though not so much because of our differences in political views. It usually is more because they run their personal lives with the same self-contradiction and hypocrisy they demonstrate in their political views.
