They shoot horses don't they? Maybe they can start shooting Dem's & Pug's.

Put these assholes out of their pain. Please.

Churchill said it best, ..."If your not liberal under 40 you ain't got a heart, ... if your NOT conservative after 40 you ain't got a brain".

When your young and ain't got no money you want everyone to share, ... just like OWS, ... imagine that and they thought they invented this shit.

But when your over 40 and you worked 20 years to build a home and some shit, you don't want to share, ... fucking what greedy bastards,... just cuz your worked for something you think you own it ... fuck

What's most amusing about the entire OWS bullshit is the model is based on theft, but the irony is that everything has already been stolen, there is nothing left for OWS steal, ... the USA today in DEBT to the scale of $1,000,000 per head, ... anybody that thinks they can squeeze blood out this turd is full of OWS-SHIT.

so your new tactic is to make enough sense to spit labels but everything else is just nonsense. Smart but far from honest. To bad, cause in your mind I bet you think you're the good guy.

[-] 2 points by salinsky (27) 2 years ago

RKG your a boor. Your an idiot.

Your ego is too much for the stomach.

My guess is your an only child, and your own parents put you up for adoption.

Everybody knows that REAL people on this forum don't list where they live, the simple fact that your got FortWalton,FL tells everyone your a phony.

It's NOT about you, ... but in your mind its about you, its all about you.

Your a boor, and when when I asked rhetorically if they 'shoot horses' ( remember the movie? ) I was hoping I didn't have to explicitly use your name, ... but your ego led you right to the OWS shit-pit.


What the FUCK do you know of John Lennon fake boy? Your a fucking Republican sent here by Rush Limbaugh to drive folks nuts for what? I think JL was a good guy, and Churchill is right, and Lennon when he got older wasn't a liberal, but so fucking what? This ain't news.

Why the fuck don't you post something topical and interesting why beat your penis over a musician corpse that died 20+ years ago? Is there really a point to this you pathetic asshole?

lol. That cussing session was written without the first notion of sincerity or even rage or anger. A fake rant. I'm honored that you are interested in my reaction though.

I just watched the Lennon video. Beautiful. Just beautiful. Lennon got it so well. When he and Yoko did the "War is over (if you want it to be) billboard campaign, they raised consciousness in an uncomplicated fashion. I love how he spent his fame in the name of peace. The lyrics are slightly reminiscent of "The Logical Song" by Supertramp (blast from the past http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcX1qA1Etc8&feature=youtube_gdata_player -- odd version but the lyrics hit home.

These Lennon lyrics are also fantastic if you listen close on a blue sky day staring out the window: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moCf_pghM-U&feature=youtube_gdata_player

This is completely unrelated but awesome too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLFQYbjYsso&feature=youtube_gdata_player . Would it be good if participants in the occupy movement "got their yawp on"? That level of confidence. We need it.

Here's something else completely random that you might enjoy: Wouldn't be wonderful if when we occupy an important gathering sometime, someone stands up and gives a speech with this level of passion and guts! --- watch this. So fun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0E0WZG_SAI&feature=youtube_gdata_player

And finally, to complete the entirely random nature of this Sunday post, I'll offer my favorite quote in the hopes that it reminds you that all things are possible:

"Until one is committed, there is a hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.  Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth - the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.  All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.  A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manor of unforseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would come his way.  Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.  Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.  Begin it now."

Goethe

Right on. I like your perspective. Good tune 'The Logical Song

beyond your comprehension homie. I get called a republican on here all the time because I'm pro-capitalism and don't think raising taxes will fix the economy. I'm also a fan of Lincoln. Does that mean I'm going to vote for a know-nothing or agree with "Republican" policy all together? Nope. Keep reaching for those labels though, apparently you need them.

[-] 1 points by TheMisfit (48) 2 years ago

What label did I ascribe to anyone here? Read much?

[-] 1 points by richardkentgates (3269) 2 years ago

John Lennon turned away from radical liberalism

Think much?

[-] 1 points by TheMisfit (48) 2 years ago

Did I call Lennon a "liberal"? No I didn't. I see you are too hung up on proclaiming to be above labels that you have gotten too carried away to think beyond your own little box that you have put yourself into.

[-] 1 points by richardkentgates (3269) 2 years ago

so make the point then...

Nice Richard...real nice. He never forgot where he came from, did good work in trying to get his message across, and then that f~~king psycho cut him down in his prime. Still pisses me off to this day every time I think about it.

Despite his millions, what better person to use as a symbol for the 99%? Well done!!!

[-] 2 points by richardkentgates (3269) 2 years ago

the world could use someone like him these days.
