blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Big Bag Of Nothing

Big Bag Of Nothing

I've looked around but there is very little interesting happening out there. I saw Boy George sweeping the streets of New York, a quasi-revealing pic of Lindsay Lohan, a recall of Dell computer laptops, and Kate Hudson separating from her husband. None were worthy of a link. I promise to do better.

Barry If you want to do better. How about cleaning up your blog from the trolls. Outright hatred and people using the f bomb and the c word. This blog has gone from the fun place to be to very un cool. You started out with great intentions but have failed in the long term. I hope that is not the story of your life. bye

How about banning ultraconservative Republican bible-thumpers? Then we could have LOTS of FUN!

Or, inject the ultraconservative Republican bible-thumpers with truth serum, to find out how they really think, want, desire behind those moral stances.

The ultra-conservative Republican Bible thumpers have been brainwashed. It's that simple. The Republicans in office know they can convince these people to vote for them in order to please God. Total bullshit. I used to be one of these people until I got educated and saw the light.

Support REAL Christian values...vote Democrat.

Would that be the Bible-thumpers who watch porn and eat cupcakes while thumping something that no longer has any life?

We can’t blame the Republican voters who were manipulated with fear and fooled with lies and propaganda. They are coming around now so we need to welcome them and not call them names.

The Bu$h apologists hate America and should be ignored.

To Barry...
This is off the topic you posted but is in response to the topic introduced by other commentators. I think you are doing an excellent job with YOUR blog. I believe that by NOT removing the crude, disgusting and hateful comments you are allowing people to make the choice to either join in with the feces-flinging chimps or to NOT behave in a vulgar disgusting manner and remain civilized.

Is a woman TRULY virtuous if her virtue is NEVER tested? The same can be asked about whether or not people are TRULY civilized/decent.

I do however believe that if the person to whom the comments are directed requests you remove the comment, especially if it puts them at risk because of personal information being disclosed you should remove the comment. (I know you know agree with this. I just had to put it out there in an attempt to keep the feces-flinging to a minimum.)

Mzchief...Why should Barry show favoritism to you? If you would come back down to earth....people might like you better. Your lifestyle DOES NOT put you on a moral high ground and everyone knows it....except you.

Personally, I don't hate you...but I damn sure would not want to get to know you at all!!!!

Anonymous said...

4:17 funny but true. Sometimes people try to build themselves up because they are unhappy with their lives. Perhaps Mzchief is friendless and obnoxious so she claims to be perfect in order to console herself.

Mzchief - you can save your Ahemmmm because I won't read it anyway.

Lord have mercy! Some folks can't hear the name "Bill Clinton" without erupting in boils. For others, it's "Ronald Reagan", or "W". And for some of you people, you can't see a posting by "mzchief" or by "txsharon" (or whoever) without the kneejerk spewing of vitriol. Do you even read what they are saying??

Anon 4:11 - mzchief was making no personal claim of virtue. She was offering up the philosophical point that the true test of "virtue" lies in our response to temptation; and that likewise the true test of whether we are "civilised" lies in how we respond to the expression of opinions with which we disagree. Your lack of "civility" simply proved her point.

And Anon 4:17 - I fail to see that mzchief was asking "Barry" (who's like what? the "god" of this electronic etherworld?) for favoritism. She was asking for a reasonably protective policy, for everybody. Nor have I ever read anything she posted as a claim that her lifestyle placed her on a "moral high ground." She's proud of her lifestyle, I'll grant you. Might be nice if we could all say the same. But I've never heard her claim it elevated her "moral position". What I HAVE read in her postings, are thoughtful, educated, rational opinions. And mind you, I damn well don't agree with all of them. But that disagreement doesn't piss me off. And it doesn't make me feel condescended to by some snotty "bitch". It does sometimes make me ... think.

Why don't we all try that.

I think if mzchief practiced what she preaches others might think more highly of her.

Anonymous said...

4:54 how can you say that her posts are well educated and rational? Just this week she made a cruel comment about someone who was molested. She suggested that they did not spend enough time with a "shrink" and she has called the Bible a collection of fairy tales. I am sorry but I do not call her opinions educated. Being cruel, evil and mean spirited to others is not a sign of a good education but rather a lack of compassion for humanity. Her holier that thou attitude might impress you but does absolutely nothing for me. After her rude comment to the young woman that was molested I will not read anything else that MZ posts.

TO anonyNOTHING 6:51...

I have NEVER called the Bible "a collection of fairy tales." I believe it is a collection of MYTHS and FABLES and have on several occasions made that statement. If YOU are going to quote ME, at the very least get it right!

As for YOU not agreeing with MY observation that a woman had NOT spent enough time in a shrink's office working through HER issues because of her lashing out about a comment I made regarding everyone being made aware of how people in Wise County feel about children based upon the fact there are more registered child molesters compared to people willing to volunteer as a Big Brother/Sisters in Wise County. The woman in a later post admitted the mere fact that her daughter is now the same age she was when she was molested has triggered some issues for her.

"I normally don't let it bother me to much, but my daughter is now the same age I was when I was molested and it has really been preying on my mind alot lately."

If that is not someone admitting they NEED to spend time in a shrink's office I have no idea what more she need do other than attempt to take her own life to make YOU realize I made an INTELLEGENT observation! Rather than offer pointless platitudes and wasting text on commenting on how terribly sad it is that she is going through such a horrific ordeal, something of which EVERY decent human is aware, she more than most. I on the other hand offered a SOUND observation and if my advice was taken could actually result in HER working through HER issues. YOU electing to take such offense to someone OBVIOUSLY needing to spend time in a shrink’s office could very well be the thing that PREVENTS her from seeking help she OBVIOUSLY if not DESPERATELY requires. I guess YOU being YOU will be able to sleep just fine knowing what YOU may have done because YOU at least told her YOU were sorry for what was done to HER. YOU being well intentioned does not make up for your ignorance and making her feel bad about NEEDING help!

When YOU decide to publicly post YOUR home telephone number so that EVERYONE can ring YOU and obtain YOUR approval PRIOR to posting a comment, then and ONLY then do you get to be the comment/speech police.

YOU need to get over ME not being YOU and move on! Since you no longer are reading my comments do not bother to respond! Sleep well, oh caring, compassionate anonyNOTHING 6:51.

THIS is GETTING OLD!!!!!

I agree with anon 8:37 a.m.
It is no wonder our kids are all screwed up these days when we have adults that refuse to show respect for others.
What is it with people so angry these days!

Gosh guys, I promise it will not hurt if you try and say something nice!! All the personal attacks are really getting OLD!

mzchief said...

To browneyes1428...
YOUR "righteous indignation" all too obviously comes a post too late to be convincing!

Funny how ISP numbers allow people to keep track of even those who from time to time post as "anonyNOTHING". Maybe you will get away with it the next time.

Anonymous said...

I have an idea....let's just ignore mzchief. I think Barry is paying her to spew verbal diarrhea.

browneyes1428 said...

I agree with you 9:51

browneyes1428 said...

oh, and check your tracking numbers again honey....your wrong.
I have not posted anon. in SEVERAL days. I posted that way for a while BEFORE Browneyes.

Wow, this went to hell in a handbasket. I'm still addicted to skattershooting - I'm just wondering how B's wisecounty.com site being down alters the amount of feces-slinging that occurs. You know, those idiots who couldn't find it if it wasn't where it usually was. I haven't been in on this bitchfest lately, except for the initial one - me - Anon 10:51AM, but MzChief, I think you need to take some chill pills. I have a static IP address, so I am sure you can trace me down and kick my a$$ anytime you choose. And if you can, well, I think you are a plant of B's. And I will just have it changed, and have way less respect for you than I did.
