What I Did on my Summer Vacation

I painted a target on my chest and chose to become one of the Anti-Strib contributors. I have been commenting here for several years and enjoy the generally intelligent banter.

I moved to Minnesota from Georgia 8 years ago to a left-leaning area from a right leaning area; from a racially diverse area to a more ethnically diverse area; from an area where at 5am the only talk on the rural AM dial would be religious to a more urban area that has a variety of talk choices--I am a talk addict from "Car Talk" to political to sports and it is intolerable to my wife of 30 years; from an area where my kids grew up and consider home to an semi-empty nest situation; from an active Libertarian Party member to an occasionally active Republican Party member; from a home with 2 creeks in the middle of 30 wooded acres to the burbs.

I am an atheist who has read the Bible and goes to church with my mom when I visit. I value organized religion and enjoy religious philosophy. I love Christmas season, sing carols and hymns with feeling, and despise fanatical atheist who attempt to deny religion symbolism in our society.

Thanks to Jim and all the other douches for the invitation

Let me be the first to say
Fuck you and how are the kids?

I'm glad we've got someone better looking than Jim W posting now. After Brent left, JW of MN hasn't had a single thrill go down his leg.

That's a rather unsettling image. I haven't met Jim in person yet, but I am now picturing him with Chris Matthews head -- yuck!!

Yeah, you met him at the Mansion a few years ago. Summer.

Hay Tom welcome to the trenches watch out for the low life the rats scurry around here a lot. Hay Kermit I had noticed that Brent had not been a round for a bit now what happened his work really pick up or just got tired with the poo f lingers?

Don't know Tim. Brent didn't provide a valedictory.

Thanks Kermit, and fuck you, how are the children, Tom? I suppose you got roped into being the Town Hall leader also; and now this happens. Shit like that happens when you offer intelligent commentary.

I always enjoy reading your comments and often learn something from your points. Best of luck and hope you also get to enjoy posting.

Fuck you.
I'd ask how the kids are; but I don't really give a shit.
Welcome ya douchebag.

The kids, cats, and dogs are fine. And I'd say fuck you, but I don't swear. May Nancy Pelosi smile on all you children.

Congrats On Your Promotion!

Well, Tom, they sure did a great joy shitting on your first thread....

Only, Tim, did not address you from the gutter...

I have enjoyed many of your excellent posts and hope to read many more...

Psst, Hans. FU and how are the kids is a tradition here. It is aboslutely the only instance where someone's children are ever mentioned by another. Trust me, it's not a bad thing.

I was at work for a machine that is monitored for language and such dang government contracts have some very stringent rules about words. So i had to tone it down
