I am blessed to live the winter months in a township that prints their newspaper on paper that does not leave residue of ink on their hands.

The days are becomer warmer and soon it will be time to return to the realities that for seven months only exist on this little underclass and liberal forum.

This year I am extending my stay in Palm Beach until the first May. I have suggested to this forum that the only practical idea that would save this Republic might very well be to deny voting privileges to anyone 25 to 65 years of age who do not pay any federal income taxes.

Obviously this suggestion did not meet with good favor the consensus of this forum.

Well, in any case this is Masters week and I look forward to two wonderful days in Augusta.

I had a bad dream last night. I dreamed that when I returned to Nashville in May that Nordstroms in Green Hills had been converted to a WAL-Mart.

Nah Raspy - They are converting it to a Dollar General, so you can shop there! Does your keeper let you shop at all?

Too much cheap gin and Grey Poupon will give a person nightmares...Google it.

"All the gun nut organizations might consider Nashville for their convention venues...the Creationists too...the Defenders of Marriage might also find Nashville attractive....the Fetus-First anti-choice crowd might go for the MCC....the Islamophobes and homophobes might want to book their conventions in Music City...."

And the beauty is that most of these people won't have to travel far to get here....

"Ben carries the torch for Bush & Cheney....but it is Barack Obama who rescued the economy...his predecessors had run the ship-o-state aground, on the rocks of financial disaster....one would think that Ben would show some gratitude to Barack Obama and the Democrats.....the saviors of the American Economy."

Give it up Loner, Ben's a bubble baby.... nothing but right wing tripe gets through that wall of protoplasm.

Brrrk.....Being a student of philosophers you are probably also familiar with. "When in doubt whip it out" ......Snakeshit....

The convention center was darned expensive, but looking at it and it's location you have feel good about it. also if you've traveled to other cities and seen the stuff they have going on in just a typical weekend you have to think Nashville could be in the mix for that business.
I consider the convention center a hedge against the wild whims of Gaylord. They could close their place down next week w/o nary a warning. Look at the stuff that went on over there last year. Thier HUGE plans for a water park that went up in a poof of smoke before one shovel of dirt was moved. For a city that depends on tourism we had to have something.
Also it will push out the bad business that are in that part of downtown and bring in better stuff. win-win

The news paper that does not leave residue on finger tips is called the internet.

Remember when the city practically begged Gaylord to run a water taxi from their hotel over to the downtown area? Back then it was only the real entrepreneurs that took a chance on opening little shops and stores on 2nd ave; shops that not only attracted tourism but also locals as well. Gaylord would have none of it........ that is until they opened the Wildhorse and started the conversion of 2nd ave. to a tourist trap.

I've often wondered how you made all your money, Raspy.....

By: Captain Nemo on 4/8/13 at 12:34

Well unless your fingertips are covered in watered down Grey Poupon.

By: Loner on 4/8/13 at 12:35

Amen, brother Brrrk. Ingratitude mixed with platitude...that's the GOP attitude.

Good one, Captain Nemo...the internet newspapers do not require paperboys, or forests of pulp wood...or toxic inks...trouble is, you can't wrap a fish in them....or lay it in the bottom of the bird cage.

Balls.

By: yogiman on 4/8/13 at 1:18

I'm sure BenDover and I don't know everything about everything, bfra, but I would be willing to bet we know a helluvalot more than you.

How about starting with your favorite man Barry? I'll bet you he isn't an American citizen. If he is, when did he repatriate from Indonesia? And the question remains: Has he ever been an American citizen? If he wasn't lying like hell in his autobiography as he does on everything else, I question if he ever was an American citizen. But if he was born with dual-citizenship, he sure wasn't a natural born American citizen.

By: BenDover on 4/8/13 at 1:18

The Repubs in the House are trying to hold back the spending Loner though the screaming of the stuck pigs by the lefties and entrenched bureaucracy is deafening.

Repubs have only had control for the last 2 years though. Most of the damage was done under the Pelosi/Reid reign between '06 and '10. Particularly when it overlapped with Obama's tenure as POTUS.

The promise of another round of Obama un-checked is really frightening and that's why I'm selling my condo while there's still some people earning enough to buy it.

America needs to implode an rebuild with people who are ashamed of being on welfare. But, that means there will be no democratic party.

By: bfra on 4/8/13 at 3:10

I know more teapugs on welfare than democrats!

By: BenDover on 4/8/13 at 3:13

Welfare is a drop in the bucket to the vastly expanded Disability roles... aka, Early Retirement.

By: yogiman on 4/8/13 at 3:20

So you claim, bfra. What's to make us think you're right; just because you "said so"?

Spoken as someone who knows no one who tried getting disability....

By: Captain Nemo on 4/8/13 at 3:34

The drugged induced Jughead wants America to implode. This is what the fringe Tea Party is producing. Does this ball sucker really understand what he says.

Ben he is one of yours, explain to the the twit what would happen.

By: Captain Nemo on 4/8/13 at 3:37

People like Drughead and yogi will be the end of the Republican party.

By: Jughead on 4/8/13 at 3:46

Er...Nimrod...you need a friggin lobotomy to wise up. I am not a Republican. I just hate liberal pukes like you.

Yep--time to implode--gonna love all you libtards who get cranky when you cannot get your 24/7 CNN and half-nude pics of Anderson Cooper.

By: Loner on 4/8/13 at 3:51

Yeah, Jug's sounding like a latent homosexual...obsessed with men's balls.... he then mentions, "half-nude pics of Anderson Cooper"....it's OK, Jug, you can come out here and now...we'll still love you as before...."lbtards" are a loving group of people.

By: bfra on 4/8/13 at 4:05

Loner - He has sounded like that, starting with the first comment he put on the board.

By: Loner on 4/8/13 at 4:05

Libtards are a loving, caring people....sensitive to the feelings and sensibilities of those around them....it's alright, Jug....we care about you and your little issues.....think Kum-By-Yah:

By: Jughead on 4/8/13 at 4:22

You libtards are boring and uneducated sots. I know you all want in my pants (pockets) so you can steal every dime in the name of "progress." The thought of employment repulses you.

Idiots. Amateurs. Freeloaders. Socialists. Demtards. AMERIKA!

By: Jughead on 4/8/13 at 4:23

Balls.

First off if you are trying to insult me, by call me nimrod…you have failed sorrowfully. When dunces such as you call me this, it only proves just how small and depleted that crap between your ears has become. Perhaps if you did not indulge your drug habit you would know this.

nimrod

BTW twit I am not a liberal (not that there is anything wrong with being one) or any perversion of that you might wish to call me.

By: Jughead on 4/8/13 at 4:28

LONER HATES GAYS! LONER HATES GAYS! "Little issue"???

Tsk, tsk, libtard---that's not very PC of you to refer to gays as having a "little issue."

Of course, libtards are all insincere piles of vomit who stand for anything that gets them something from the gov't for free.

By: bfra on 4/8/13 at 4:30

Nemo - The perversion is definitely noted in jughead's comments! Sick perversion, at that!

By: Captain Nemo on 4/8/13 at 4:42

Just how old are you Davy or is it the drugs that makes act as a child?

By: Loner on 4/8/13 at 4:45

Yeah...I think I hit a raw nerve...the Jug is blatantly latent.

Slacker...are you here.....Here we go:

"Latent homosexual Tennessee tea-bagger marches into a gay piano bar...."

By: bfra on 4/8/13 at 4:47

jug sure takes offense about a "little issue". He must take that personally!

By: Captain Nemo on 4/8/13 at 4:47

It is obvious that he is mentally ill in some fashion, bfra. I mean really the Caps and the repeating slurs toward Loner. The boy had really got problems wither there are natural or manufactured.

By: Captain Nemo on 4/8/13 at 4:51

Maybe that is what sets him off Loner. You are nice to him and he has a reverse brain disorder.

By: Loner on 4/8/13 at 4:55

Looks like the Slack one is not in the room....going to auto-pilot:

"Latent homosexual Tennessee tea-bagger marches into a gay piano bar...."

"....and orders a pitcher of Hairy Blue Balls."

Hairy Blue Balls recipe:

Scale ingredients to servings.

1 oz Southern Comfort® peach liqueur
1 oz blueberry schnapps
1 splash amaretto almond liqueur

Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and pour into a cocktail glass

And order a Davy the Dork, with a pink umbrella.

By: Captain Nemo on 4/8/13 at 4:58

I'll pass on that one Loner. LOL

By: Captain Nemo on 4/8/13 at 5:00

I'm going to be out of town tomorrow, Loner. I will check in if I can.

By: Loner on 4/8/13 at 5:03

What? No balls, Captain?

See ya...and have a safe and fun-filled trip.

By: Jughead on 4/8/13 at 5:03

Amazing!! All you "progressive" libtards continue to state that homosexuality is a perversion and a sickness.

Typical demtard BS. An,d that is why I absolutely HATE liberals. Lying pukes who all want to freeload off of folks who work.

Take note, gaywads: libtards hate you and only use you for political purposes. Same goes for blacks.

By: Jughead on 4/8/13 at 5:06

Loner and Nimrod are now slathered with olive oil and wrestling naked on a sheetless waterbed. But, they bash gays when the lights turn back on.

Take showers when you are finished, fellers. I won't mention it to your wives...promised.

Love puddles. Jugs

By: Loner on 4/8/13 at 5:09

Calm down, my friend...come out of the closet, go to your local gay piano bar and order a pitcher of Hairy Blue Balls...you'll soon have more new friends than you can shake a stick at...or whatever else you want to shake at them.....go with the flow, Jug.

By: Loner on 4/8/13 at 5:12

Jug reveals one of his personal gay fantasies in his 5:06 post? Too much detail for it to be spontaneous...this guy has thought about this...a lot.

By: Jughead on 4/8/13 at 5:12

OK, Loner. I'll even order one of the drinks they named after you--The Steeaming Bunghole.

Make sure you take extra tampons tonight. Don't want wifey to see your dripsies.

By: Jughead on 4/8/13 at 5:13

LONER HATES GAYS!!!!!! LONER HATES GAYS!!!!!!!!!

By: Loner on 4/8/13 at 5:15

Jug knows all the tricks of the trade...and the occupational hazards...he's coming out....right here on the NCP Up For Debate Board....very touching....Jug has had his gay epiphany?

By: Loner on 4/8/13 at 5:17

Jug achieved orgasm at 5:13....bless his heart....he had to take matters into his own hands, once again.
