How many similar 'flaming' letters has he sent to some of his

Democrat buddies in the Senate? Not one...I bet.

His choice of words is what I find funny. Do his letters go through an automatic thesaurus? smiling smiley

Mc Cain's temper is not new. This is the media deflecting scrutiny
from Hillary's bad disposition onto a Republican.

If McCain had written this on a forum it would have been called trolling. Since he released it on the internet, what's the difference?

As far as I'm concerned, the two of them can invite Arlen Spector over and they can all go into a locked room, survivor take all. I'd rather a Democrat whose agenda is clear than a pair of wishy-washy RINOs.

I think the trouble started when Obama jumped in between McCain and a camera.

I would have preferred that McCain post the letter he is reacting to and not just his reaction to it.

Some of McCain's remarks are pretty funny (e.g. "I concluded your professed concern for the institution and the public interest was genuine and admirable. Thank you for disabusing me of such notions" & "But I understand how important the opportunity to lead your party’s effort to exploit this issue must seem to a freshman Senator"). He's quite the little bitch when he is angry.

EDIT: upon reflection, I think it was tacky to issue a press release when responding to private correspondence. So tacky and bitchy is my final answer.

McCain was and is a complete phony who is solely out for McCain. Obama is an immature,
inexperienced,liberal jerk. It is kind of fun to see these two disgusting politicians hammer each
other.

We wanted civil war in Iraq to divide and conquer. As we sow so shall we reap. Many Bush phrases mean the opposite of what he says (e.g."Clean Skies" means less regulation of polluters; "Health Forests" means cutting down the remaining old growth forests; "No Child Left Behind" means cutting funds for Head Start, etc.) So we shouldn't be surprised that domestic partisan walls rise like apartheid barriers in Palestine after Bush proclaimed "I'm a uniter, not a divider." Whenever he says something realize he means the opposite. "No decision has been made to attack Iran" will probably be the next thing out of his mouth.

Do you have a long list of those who aren't.

Obama may not have much experience, but he is a very intelligent politician. Half of this country will always hate him, but I suspect he'll rise to be a very effective Senator, as did Hillary Clinton. Read that "effective" in being able to accomplish your own political agenda, not mine or yours.

I would guess the delight some exhibit in seeing McCain publicly airing and denigrating a private conversation has roots in racism...putting an "inferior" in his place.

My delight is in his choice of words and phrasing that no normal person would ever conjure up. I don't even know anything about Sen. Obama, but read that letter and cracked up over his looney assault.

There is now a follow-up to that, too.

You're joking, right? That type of pompous pontificating is common amongst the congressional buffoons. However, on this forum it would constitute unusual language (with the exception of Heck on Wheel's pompous utterances).

You aren't very bright, are you? A black man portraying a character from a movie in which black railway workers in quicksand are bypassed to save a "$400 handcart" is used as a device to make a joke about an "uppity physicist," being davester, and you think it racist?

I'm not making the connection here. Perhaps you might break it down to me in your Fisher-Price terms so that I understand the quantum leap that you're taking.

Oh, and by the way, @#$%& off.

Well roger, to figure out what you were talking about, I momentarily unclicked the "User ignored - click to show/hide this message" button to check out FS's post. It made no sense at all. Perhaps I need to become a physicist (or more likely a psychiatrist) to figure out what the heck he was talking about.

My most sincere apologies for being ignorant of your field of endeavor. I was under the impression that you were a physicist. Perhaps physicists have multi-dimensional senses of humor?

This is what certain people post when they aren't trying to play the "sane act" here with a straight face:



[sigforum.com]

This is way beyond normal comprehension, much like the "humor" in his posts here.

Isn't one of the prime definitions of "crazy" when one doesn't realize that one IS crazy?

That pic would make a good billboard for the American Stroke Society. ASS could ask "Choose Life, Not Just A Slower Form of Suicide." my naturopath says it's not so much the cholesterol that'll get you as the fried foods. While a heart attack is intense pain followed by death, a stroke can mean years as a vegetable. Not that I'd notice much difference in my life's output, but being able to walk up to the hot springs, even as slowly as I do, would be impossible. I'd think that anyone who enjoys posting here would be scared off the fried food for fear of a stroke, too.

A real professional who uses (and really NEEDS) a gun always keeps it under wraps.

You never know he has it, it's kept in good condition, oiled, ready to use, but discreet.

It's not handled like a toy, fetish object or @#$%&.

People who treat guns like @#$%& ARE @#$%&.

This is just a dangerous jerk-off object, in the hands of a nut. Just one look at the photo tells the entire story.

Even if he claims it was "a joke", it's not.

For the insane bastards Otto @#$%& and Guitarman posting on this thread (such as this image) who have the nerve to fish for gossip material on other forums:

1. I do not receive disability funds. So stick those claims up your collective asses.

2. Yes, Otto "Virginia" @#$%&, "meal protection" really is a joke amongst SiGForum participants. Consider this search result from SiGforum: [sigforum.com]

3. Mind your own @#$%& troughs. I treat myself to this infrequently, rarely even, these days, usually opting for much more healthy Vietnamese and Cambodian options. I'll live my life as I see fit, which is to say that I prefer a few more years of life as opposed to seven or eight lived like an ascetic.

4. You really don't want to continue these games. This is trolling on your parts, and I've stopped playing the game, even though you haven't. Wanna find yourselves in Federal District Court? Keep at it.

Oooh, so scary.

Lest you forget, Styles, you have been guilty of the same behavior in the past. Whether or not you are now doesn't change that fact. You are thus subject to any and all threats of this type you make against others. Have a nice day!



P.S. Note that YOU were the one to turn this thread away from its original topic with your Cleavon Little post -- which was a personal attack, by the way, not a "joke." One only jokes in such a manner with one's friends; IIRC, davester does not count you among his friends.



It is what it is.

That's your response to simply asking that some control be exercised over the amount of verbal violence that goes on here?

If you don't want to be guilty of false advertising just remove the "Friendly" and replace it with "Vicious Personal Attacks &".

JURY? It doesn't go there. It goes to an Asst US Attorney who is tasked with deciding if a crime was committed. Given that they can indict the proverbial "ham sandwich", I'd love to have a recording of the gawffaws rolling through those rooms as CruStys charge is investigated.
