    I have an interview in the A.M. so it’s gonna be an early night for me. Looking at a maintenance supervisor position with an injection molding company that makes car parts (this location makes interior parts).

  2. R.D. Walker says:

    Good luck brotherman. I’ll toss a prayer at the Good Lord for ya.

  3. TN_Cat says:

    Same here Nota, you get em buddy! Good luck.

  4. John B. says:

    Your video just traumatized my oldest child.

  5. R.D. Walker says:

    Sorry ’bout that John, but Seebach must be seen.

    I’m digging the 1970s babes. Totally realistic, non-plasticized hotties… You just don’t see standard issue 1970s boobs anymore, you know? They’ve all been super-sized or something.

  6. John B. says:

    The MTV 4 generation just can’t understand the 70′s.

  7. Locke n Load says:

    MTV 4 ???
    ^Sigh^
    In the galaxy of pop culture I’m like Voyager, disappearing into the disance at escape velocity…

  8. R.D. Walker says:

    Nota: Well. That was… disturbing. Sort of an all female, urban Lord of the Flies.

    Looks like we found the climate of simmering, barely controlled violence.

  9. notamobster says:

    Yeah, that was a typical weekend night on the Police force for us, only with more drunken miscreants. I remember one time, my Lt was feeling particularly funny when we responded to one of these small riots, so he grabbed his stack of warrant sheets (wanted posters) and passed em out to us on the scene. He told us “just walk around looking at faces and back at the papers”.

    It took about a minute and a half to disperse several hundred drunken ne’er-do-wells, when they realized what we were doing.

  10. Locke n Load says:

    Bwahahahaha!
    That reminds me. Wouldn’t it be fun to grab a digital camera and run with the anarchists whenever a big protest gets planned? I’ve always wanted to club a window breaker, remove his mask, then photograph his face. Something tells me their balls would shrink about 10 sizes after that.

  11. notamobster says:

    You won’t catch me within 50 miles of that scene when it comes…and it is coming. I might would entertain some contract work and snipe animals from a rooftop if it were legal.

  12. notamobster says:

    Well, the interview went very, very well. I have to do a second interview with the plant manager and hr manager who are in union contract negotiations this week, so I’ll find out for sure next week. I thought I’d be settling, but it’s actually a GREAT opportunity with tons of upward mobility. It’s an opportunity to turn things around for their maintenance program and shine with lots of eyes watching the work being done. I.E. a CHALLENGE!

    I have another interview coming up with a long-term care facility as maint director, so I hope I get to choose the best of the options.

  13. TN_Cat says:

    Way to go Nota, you da man! Congrats,

  14. Locke n Load says:

    outstanding dude. guess i’ll have to scratch that one of my predictions 2011 list as well..

  15. notamobster says:

    Thanks, guys.

    LnL: you never posted your predictions for 2011…what’s up with that, Sir?

  16. Locke n Load says:

    yeah, they’re all scratched out on paper but never did get thdem up. i’ve just been in such a fog these last 10 days. now that it looks like 2 of them could come true in the first month i’m almost embarrassed to post them. 1st the assasination attempt now you…
    Anything i pot up now deserves an asterisk :)

  17. sortahwitte says:

    Nota! Not to be premature, but congrats. They will be fortunate to have such a sharp guy as yourself.

  18. Bman says:

    So, I was listening to a local radio station while driving west on Hwy 2 today. They were talking about the impact that the Bakkan oil fields are having on western ND, in particular the small town of Williston.

    Williston is a town of around 12,000. However, with the boom of the oil industry, and the influx of people and workers, they are having a major problem with housing, traffic congestion, and, if you can believe this, a problem finding people to fill jobs! These are good paying jobs. How good you ask? Well, according to the manager of a certain national chain store in Williston, he is starting out new employees at $14 an hour plus a sign-on bonus of upto $600. What store you ask?

    Taco Johns. No shit.

  19. NotamobsTer says:

    Taco johns? No shit? Wow.

  20. NotamobsTer says:

    Stupid iPhone keyboard

  21. sortahwitte says:

    My, but I could certainly go for a Taco John’s taco right about now. Or maybe three. Like that’s gonna happen.

  22. BrunDawg says:

    14 dollars/hr AND all the green sauce you can pocket.

  23. BrunDawg says:

    DuPage County, IL; Joshua Matthews appeared in court yesterday on trial for murder. His attorney had to be ‘subdued’ with a stun gun during the trial, no, wait, Matthews was representing himself… and got zapped. His opening statement included the “every police officer is lying. I condemn the entire American justice system,” defense, the “They ain’t got (expletive) on me,” defense, and an attempt to flip over the tables in the courtroom.
    Assistant State’s Attorney Bernard Murray said “Five times the gun accidentally went off, that’s the spin he puts on it.”
    If that’s not enough to set him free, he also has an alibi; Matthews said he couldn’t have murdered Glover because he spent the night of her death going to a dice game, selling drugs and drinking alcohol with friends, “like I do every day.”
    The trial continues today.

  24. notamobster says:

    I just watched (some) of the off topic video above. You sure that guy isn’t the ultra-cool 70′s [prn-star version of Steve Buscemi?

    And the video? It’s so racist. All of the dancers are white. Tell us about the days when women were selected based on the content of their brazier and not the color of their skin…

    Today one of the dancers would be required to be black and one asian, though latinas are allowed to be substituted for asians…unless the star is black, then white girls aren’t allowed. Sure he can marry them, he just can’t show them in his videos.

  25. Jim22 says:

    Brazier or brassiere? I like the contents of both. Could go for a grilled steak this evening. NY, medium rare.

  26. Bman says:

    Scientists in the Netherlands have discovered that insects produce significantly less greenhouse gas per kilogram of meat than cattle or pigs. Their study, published in the online journal PLoS, suggests that a move towards insect farming could result in a more sustainable — and affordable — form of meat production.

    Pass the catsup, please…

  27. notamobster says:

    I just went with the phonemic spelling. Since I’ve never actually had occassion to spell the word or see it in written form, there was no reference to throw up a red flag.

    Brazier is also a name on some Dairy Queen signs.

    http://tinyurl.com/4qzetod

  28. sortahwitte says:

    Whatever you call it, it is a fine container with yummy contents. Is that sexist enough? I can say more.

  29. Bman says:

    I thought a brazier was a metal pot used to contain fire, used by archers who lit their arrows wich were first dipped in tar….

    But yea, a Dairy Queen that also sells food is a brazier as well

  30. notamobster says:

    Wow, my spelling mistake has generated a conversation… Sweet.

  31. Bman says:

    This cracked me up. I get a kick out of the cameraman’s commentary

  32. R.D. Walker says:

    Gee, you think that sand stung?

  33. R.D. Walker says:

    Explain this…

    A Plainfield North High School teacher has been ordered not to have unsupervised contact with anyone under age 18 after a judge set her bond this afternoon at $75,000, following charges she had sex with a 16-year-old boy.

    Ashley M. Blumenshine, 27, of the 4000 block Nutmeg Lane in Lisle was charged with criminal sexual abuse after police say she allegedly had sex with the 16-year-old, who is a junior at Plainfield North, in a vehicle behind Kohl’s, 11860 S. Route 59.

    Police chief Bill Doster said police approached the scene behind Kohl’s when they noticed two suspicious vehicles “at the end of the lot away from anything else.”

    Will County Assistant States Attorney Mary Fillipitch asked Will County Circuit Court Judge Marzell Richardson for $200,000 bond stating that both Blumenshine and the 16-year-old boy, identified as E.L. in court documents, admitted to having sex. Filipitch said a condom was found at the scene.

  34. Notamobster says:

    There’s just no explaining gettin it on behind… A kohls?

  35. R.D. Walker says:

    I don’t get a lot of things about it.

    I don’t know what a 27 year old woman would see in a 16 year old kid.

    Considering that is a mugshot and she still looks good, I have to believe that, all dolled up, she would be hot. No hot woman is starved for affection.

    Why risk prison when an 18 year old lover is perfectly legal?

    If I found out that she was with my son when he was 16, I would be pissed. I sure as hell wouldn’t want her to do prison time. My son knew what he was doing when he was 16 and couldn’t be called a victim in that scenario. I would have been content with her losing her teaching licence.

    So many questions.

  36. Notamobster says:

    My joke suck that bad?

    My junior psychology badge leads me to believe that it’s driven by a desire to feel needed.

  37. R.D. Walker says:

    The joke didn’t suck. I grinned at it. :-)

    Yeah, I never met a woman that didn’t have a desire to feel needed. Most don’t form the beast with two backs with high school juniors.

  38. Slaphappypap says:

    True Story: Me and my brother and a couple of our friends in high school invited a substitute teacher to a party. When she arrived she had one beer and said out loud:

    “I COULD GET FIRED FOR DOING THIS!!”

    Then she left. We didn’t rat her out either. It was kinda odd.

  39. notamobster says:

    Why gun safety is paramount to all who use them:

  40. R.D. Walker says:

    So the gun is accidentally discharged and hits the clerk in the gut and – somehow – kicks up, and fires a second round into the brainpan of the robber? He couldn’t have done that if he tried.

  41. slaphappypap says:

    I just saw a guy selling cotton candy on the street. Interesting.

  42. Locke n Load says:

    110 days and counting…

  43. notamobster says:

    110 days?

  44. R.D. Walker says:

    Cinco de Mayo in Memphis.

  45. Locke n Load says:

    memphis! :)

    you’ll excuse me. finally parked. 1500 miles since late yesterday afternon and only 2 hrs sleep. must. sleep. now.

  46. R.D. Walker says:

    Where the heck is Air Force Brat?

  47. Locke n Load says:

    Been wondering that myself… maybe Brad knows?

  48. notamobster says:

    She’ll be around… there must be something pressing…

  49. notamobster says:

    AHA!!! I still plan to be there. Me and the wife discussed it just yesterday. Of course, I will have to get this sweet job at the plastics plant. I meet the plant manager and HR manager on Monday at 1400hrs.

  50. notamobster says:

    RD – That sand video looks a lot like St Thomas… was it?

  51. R.D. Walker says:

    I think it is St. Maarten…

  52. notamobster says:

    You are correct, Sir. I just remembered St Thomas being right on the water with mountains surrounding (actually sticks out into the water). I was really disappointed with my trip to St Thomas (honeymoon with 2d – current – wife).

    (I prefer Isla Culebra. I can offer insider views and info for anyone interested. Best Carribean escapism possible – Jimmy Buffett Syndrome).

  53. sortahwitte says:

    Gibralter is interesting, also. The highway crosses about midway down the runway. They lower barricades similar to train crossings to stop the cars when a plane arrives or leaves. It’s on you tube.

  54. notamobster says:

    Has anyone seen or heard from:

    95FLTC
    Charlottean

    Uke’s been busy…
    Kenneth checked in a week or so ago..

    There are more (just drawing a blank). Seems like a bunch of people fell off the radar around Christmas and haven’t returned.

  55. sortahwitte says:

    I see where Oklahoma’s Tom Coburn is going to sit with shi… I mean shoomer at the state of the union. I’m so disappointed. I’ve been trying very hard to control my language and temper. So anyway just fuck ‘em…..fuck ‘em all.

  56. locke n load says:

    They’ll be back Nota. Sometiimes we need our Sabaticals. Me, I take mine with my kids but then as I work like a dog for weeks on end to earn it, you can expect it.

    Christmas is hard to shake. I can attest to the power of ‘turning it off’ where the news is concerned. Sometimes folks just have to take a breather from the pace of the onslaught. Recharge the batteries. Rd can attest.

  57. locke n load says:

    Oh, btw, I found the book with my 2011 projections scribbled all over it. Will post tomorrow. planned on it tonight but got carried away with the Hu post. Blasted shame I lost my other notebook. I had seversl pages of notes on the Mexican border crap. Ah well, I’ll recreate that as soon as I get another night free. The topic deserves attention.

  58. notamobster says:

    Well, I didn’t get the job. They decided not to hire me as a maintenance supv. Apparently I impressed all the right people because they offered me a better job in a cross-functionary position as a production supervisor who also supervises the maintenance department. They didn’t want to pigeon hole me in maintenance. They wanted to be able to use me throughout the plant. SWEET!

    All thanks be to GOD Almighty!

  59. R.D. Walker says:

    OUTSTANDING!!!! Congratulations dude.


    By the way, my heart sunk when I read the first line. That was mean.

  60. notamobster says:

    Sorry. I’m in a good mood. My wife’s eyes teared up when I said the same thing to her. I felt bad…

    Thank God for this. It’s such a wonderful relief.

  61. jacksonsdad says:

    Awesome! Great job nota! Bizarro bait-n-switches are da absolute best.

    Chalk one up 4 da good guys!

  62. R.D. Walker says:

    When do you start?

  63. notamobster says:

    Sorting out the details and paperwork (B/G check, drug testing, etc)…a few days (probably next week, if I had to hazard a guess).

  64. Air Force Brat says:

    CONGRATS, Nota!!! Good things happen to good people. Way to go!

  65. R.D. Walker says:

  66. TN-cat says:

    Congratulations Nota!

  67. MadBrad says:

    Congratulations Brother! MAN that’s some good news. I am very, very happy for you. Things are on the up-swing!

  68. notamobster says:

    Thanks, folks. I am blessed. Just when things seemed at their worst… as always, GOD comes through.

  69. sortahwitte says:

    Excellent Nota! Yes, my heart sunk at the first line, too. The best to you and your family. Yesssssss!

    Can you still go to memphis?

    AFB! Welcome home! I’ve missed you, kid.

  70. Slaphappypap says:

    Congratulations Nota! Now you get to do something even more exciting than buying turbo tax. Driving your boss nuts!!!

    1. Smoke in his office.

    2. Run up overtime.

    3. Highlight all e-mails with bad grammer and misspelled words and send back.

    4. Tell him he’s ugly.

    I never do these all in one week.

  71. notamobster says:

    I sure hope so. I’ll do everything I can to make it happen. I’m hoping to get Slap to ride down with me, if my wife doesn’t go. She’s currently on the fence about the whole thing.

  72. locke n load says:

    Get Slap in the boat. I doubt I can get my brother onboard but damn, you guys would have a hell of a roadtrip if I could enlist him..

  73. Jim22 says:

    Congratulations, Nota. I hope you love the new job.

  74. locke n load says:

    Outstanding Nota, they probably don’t even know what a gem they just hired.

    Ok, question: Am I the only one who managed to lose the “edit” button on the posts? What a bizarre quirk to pick up after I reformatted the laptop…

  75. R.D. Walker says:

    Yeah, that is weird. I still have mine dude. Are you signed in?

    For non-Revo writers: You won’t have them either.

  76. notamobster says:

    I lost em too. I had to sign out of the dashboard and sign back in. I lost em when my computer shut down (the cord came unplugged. (I keep the battery out of the laptop when it’s full)

  77. Locke n Load says:

    Damn Nota, that worked!
    How weird. I could post and edit from the Dashboard but not Edit from the main page. Quite a little ‘feature’ we discovered there

  78. notamobster says:

    Just wait til you find the “Easter Egg” – it’s like your own private Christmas… (huh?) :-)

  79. Locke n Load says:

    Yeah, still surprised you found that hidden search box,lol. Kinda reminded me of some of the “shortcuts” I left in pages I built for traders so if a password was lost i could always find my way in.. otherwise unnoticed imagemapping was a great way to hide backdoors

  80. Locke n Load says:

    Unreal. I just spent so much time responding to the Asian Mom thing that I don’t have time to type up the blasted 2011 predictions. Hell, at this rate they’ll all come true before I even post them.

  81. R.D. Walker says:

    Van: From the article…

    It was the headline “1 down and 534 to go” that caught the attention. “One” refers to Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head in the rampage, while 534 refers to the other members of the U.S. House and Senate.

    A) The guy is a piece of shit for posting something like that. In the wake of Tuscon killings, to celebrate the shooting and then call for more makes this guy a Grade A, homogenized, refined asshole.

    B) That sort of shit is against Rule Number 1 here: No calls for violence of any kind against your fellow Americans.

    C) The guy lives in Massachusetts. Nuff said.

    D) “RD Walker” doesn’t have a firearms licence.

  82. Van-a-gram says:

    Since when is being politically incorrect and/or an asshole a crime?

    Most of the fucktards in DC are lawyers, so if you told the joke “Q: What do you call 1000 dead lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?” (A: A good start!)

    Is this inciting violence and considered a threat? I mean, really, when does this shit stop? Pretty soon you will not be able to even TALK about you opposition without it being twisted into ‘hate speech / threat’ — what a great way to entrench a ruling class in DC.

    “I’m gonna wipe him out in 2012!” — Hate Speech, ‘wipe-out’ common hit term.

    “I’m gonna mop the floor with him!” hate speech, insinuates an attack that would involuntarily drop his opponent to the floor / attack with large piece of wood.

    “Run him out of office!” — Suggests that the person is being chased in a manner that would cause anxiety or fear, and if caught could reasonably result in violence.

    “I hope you beat him come November!” Holy Shit– that one speaks for itself…

  83. R.D. Walker says:

    All I am saying is the situation you linked to doesn’t apply to the Real Revo. I don’t want this site to be used for advocating violence against our fellow Americans and it isn’t going to be. A comment like the one made in the article you linked to would be deleted.

    For the record, I don’t think any of your comments cross the line. I think that, in the wake of a real shooting, commenting “1 down 534 to go” is so fucking far over the line you can’t even see the gray area from there.

    They didn’t even arrest the guy, they just disarmed him. He pretty much gave them no choice. Once he made that comment, they couldn’t take the chance associated with ignoring it in case he actually followed through.

    The bottom line? Death threats aren’t protected speech nor should they be.

    I don’t want to debate slippery slope further. I know it exists. It exists in most free speech arenas. I don’t know how to fix it without allowing death threats, false shouts of “fire,” slander and so forth.

  84. Van-a-gram says:

    Yes, but….

    Agreed the guy who made the comment “1 down, 534 to go” is a moron. Agreed his comment is tasteless and squarely puts him in the category of King Asshole.

    Agreed that inciting violence or making threats of physical harm are bad, even actionable by the authorities. But does that apply in this case? He didn’t threaten anyone. He didn’t say “I’m going to take out the other 534.” He expressed an opinion, albeit one in very poor taste.

    To your point, he wasn’t arrested or charged with anything, so what crime did he commit? If he didn’t commit a crime, why did they pull his permit?

    Why was his personal property (guns and ammo) forcedly removed from his residence if no crime was committed other than being offensive or politically incorrect?

    Lastly, as we both know, pulling this guy’s carry permit accomplishes NOTHING if indeed he is a nut job set on violence. If he really was going to commit some act of violence, the fact that he did not have a carry permit would not stop him, so what’s the point? “Gee, I wanted to go shoot some people but the damn sheriff took my carry permit so I can’t.”

    THAT’S the protection people think they get when a permit is pulled from a guy like this? That’s the protection they think they get when they take his guns? It reinforces the belief that the GUN not the PERSON is the problem. If there is indeed a problem, take care of the PERSON (i.e. arrest him, lock him up)– taking away the guns and ammo does nothing.

    What this tells me is that the next time somebody posts something about liberals and puts ‘cross hairs’ on it, and “the authorities” think its threatening (but not a crime), it’s OK to confiscate their personal property. Really?

    The slippery slope you mention is this one: This is the path to “We didn’t like what you said. As such, we consider the mere fact that you own a gun as a threat to others. We’ll be taking your guns now.”

    This case is basically this scenario.

  85. R.D. Walker says:

    So what’s the answer Sensei? Ignore stuff like this?

  86. slinger says:

    I agree with Van that the police overstepped. The man was stupid, no doubt, but let’s not forget how incredibly selective the enforcement is and how slippery the slope is.

    Personally, I find someone hanging an effigy of the President to be much more threatening “speech” than “1 down 534 to go”. Someone that puts the bumper sticker on their car that says “Kill Bush” is more dangerous than someone that makes a stupid comment.

  87. R.D. Walker says:

    Don’t know what to tell you. Sometimes ignoring this shit leads to stuff like Tuscon. Maybe that is the price we pay. At some point, however, threats become meaningful. If I was that guy’s congressman, I would be looking for him at my Townhall meetings.

    Advocating killing real people is wrong. It is even wrong for libertarians. You have a right to free speech but that right ends if it means making somebody else have a diminished quality of life due to fear and stress.

  88. slinger says:

    How do you define what a “threat” is, and what kind of comments lead to a “diminished quality of life due to fear and stress” … that’s a very broad brush, and few of us would not be guilty of “diminishing” someone’s quality of life at some point during our lives.

    It’s a slippery slope; therefore, you can’t go down that road when speech is involved. It is when that speech turns to action that becomes the crime.

    Now, why do we allow Imam’s to scream “Death to Americans” on our street corners? If we are a nation of laws, then we cannot allow for selective enforcement. That means we have to have hard and fast rules that are not subject to interpretation.

  89. R.D. Walker says:

    Years ago, somebody for some reason started making death threats to my wife. She was terrified. She wouldn’t leave the house or open the curtains. She couldn’t sleep. Her hair even started to fall out from stress and fear.

    The old saying goes that your right to swing your fist ends where my nose begins. This asshole was figuratively beating my wife’s nose to a bloody pulp. Her right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness absolutely exceeded his right to have a little fun speech.

    Where is the line? Where is the line on anything? That’s why we have a court system.

  90. Van-a-gram says:

    The answer is in some uniform application of existing laws. Said differently, if this guy said did something illegal (a threat against the president etc.) then he should be arrested, charged and if CONVICTED have his permit pulled. Fine him. Incarcerate him. Have him psychologically evaluated, or any other such ruling as determined by a judge.

    This guy broke no laws other than the law of civility and common sense, which should not result in the state being able to seize your property. There is no law (yet) that says you have to be nice.

    So, no laws were broken, yet his property was taken because some PERSON thought it to be a good idea. Under what authority? I know of no law (although there very well could be one– I just don’t know) that allows for your property to be sized in this fashion. If you get a DUI, they take your license, but not your car. Hell, even if you are convicted of vehicular manslaughter, they don’t take your property (your CAR).

    So, three points at play:
    1) Let’s not take people’s property away without due process especially in the cases were no charges have been filed and no laws have broken. At one point in time, i thought we had laws preventing that, but apparently that’s not the case anymore….
    2) Let’s stop assigning guilt or culpability to inanimate objects such as guns, cars and baseball bats. Never in the history of time has gun decided to leap out of drawer and shoot someone, a car start itself up and run over pedestrians, or a bat fly out of the closet and bash someone’s skull in. In all these cases PEOPLE had to do those things. So,
    3) Let’s go after the crazies — if they are crazy– and get them off the streets– but in an objective and uniform manner consistent with the laws of the land. Otherwise, the libtards are going to say “anyone who says something we don’t like AND owns a gun MUST defacto be crazy.”

    And that’s the end of that.

  91. R.D. Walker says:

    Frankly I don’t think the line is that hard to define. I almost never have to delete a comment on the Revo. We all know where the line is.

  92. R.D. Walker says:

    Van: Are you saying this guy has no appeal process in the courts because I bet he does?

    If they can lock up my ass until a judge says I can go I don’t see why they can’t lock up my gun until the judge says it can go.

    In any case, yeah, he should be charged with something if they are going to take his guns. If they can’t charge him with a crime, they should leave him with his guns.

    For the record, I wasn’t really arguing about the punishment here. I was arguing that death threats are not protected speech nor should they be. You kind of changed the rules half way through the game.

  93. notamobster says:

    As to Van’s argument, this type of shit is not isolated. It happen’s and I think is largely driven by the fear of being impaled by the media and raped by civil suits for not doing enough (a la Tucson):

    http://therealrevo.com/blog/?p=26202

  94. notamobster says:

    Megyn Kelly just told an alpaca not to try and “go up her skirt”. Even the alpaca’s think she’s hot.

    Part of me just thinks this guy deserves it. How stupid a blogger must you be to say something like that in the immediate aftermath of the Tuscon shootings? Christ, they were just looking for that sort of crap. He deserves a much of what he got for being so stupid.

    We are never going to make the law perfect and there is always going to have to be some leeway and discretion. What is worse than giving the cops discretion as to when to act and when not to? Not giving them discretion. When you do that, you end up with TSA shaking down little old ladies from Peoria. You also end up with zero tolerance school rule in which an administrator must punish possession of a butter knife to the same degree as possession of a switchblade. It is better to give the cops the discretion to disarm you than it is to require them to disarm you even when they know you aren’t a threat.

    Uh oh.
    Moral Dilemma.
    17.5 tons of Girls Scout cookies getting loaded on my van. If you don’t hear from me for a few weeks….

    Correction, 20 tons. These guys are crafty too. They slipped me a few boxes to distract me from the bounty in the trailer!

    Moral dilemma my ass. Who can pass up the mints or the peanut butter? Those suckers are worth more ounce for ounce than gold for what they charge. Then the racket really puts the thumb screws on you by putting them in front of grocery stores. Who do they pay off to deal the wicked cookies but girl scouts. Who can say no to a girl scout? Do a lot of people a favor and post your 20, we’ll bring the milk.

    Can you imagine the posse they’d send after me if I hijacked my own load? Swarms of little brown berets and mint green skirts scouring the land….
    Gonna have to keep my 20 on the DL sir. Not that I’d hoard them for myself or anything

  99. TN_Cat says:

    Ok, we will bring duct tape too and leave you in the back of the trailer when were done.

    Some laws are just MADE to be broken, LnL.

    You’ve even got a safehouse in NH if you cut me in on the looting and pillaging.

  103. TN_Cat says:

  104. Uke says:

    I guess it could have been much worse and her defect is much better thanks for asking.
    “A Wisconsin woman accused of biting off part of her husband’s tongue has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect.
    Karen Lueders, 57, waived her right to a preliminary hearing in Sheboygan County Circuit Court
    Wednesday.
    Lueders’ attorney says his client had a mental lapse last month when she injured her husband, but is doing much better. Lueders is charged with felony mayhem, which carries a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison.
    Judge Edward Stengel modified Lueders’ bond to allow her to once again live with her husband.”

    “Swim at your own risk”
    Cathy Cruz Marrero, with all disregard to the “no swimming” signs, texts her way into a fountain then blames the mall for not coming to arrest her for trespass. An ambulance chaser is attempting to correct the matter by taking the mall to court.
