What do you make of the latest proposals and back-and-forth particularly between the U.S. House GOP and President Barack Obama over a plan to avoid the "fiscal cliff"?

Junior, you seem a tad bit annoyed that I shared your dirty little secret - lol! Still the same old scumbag you've always been, aye?

By: bfra on 12/5/12 at 3:00

Blanket - The link you provided plainly explains Obama's SSN for anyone with a brain to understand. That does leave yogi out!

By: Rasputin72 on 12/5/12 at 3:07

Blanket......Annoyance? I hardly think so. This is pure entertainment. You resent my lifestyle and politics and I resent the fact that people like you are allowed to vote.

In addition to scumbag you left out liar,fraud and thief.

These words are the tools of class warfare.

Do you smoke?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/5/12 at 3:09

"People like me." LOL, like you have any idea who I am. Perhaps you should call your imaginary former secretary and have her check.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/5/12 at 3:13

You are correct that I do not approve of people who defraud and manipulate others then try to appear as someone they are not. So yes, I dislike your lifestyle and I do not agree with the politics of the rabid right.

By: Rasputin72 on 12/5/12 at 3:15

Blanketnazi2........I really do not care who you are. You should not care who I am.

You have over the months let all of us know your life preferences and your politics and your bias. I obviously have given great indication of my life preferences .

It is nothing personal with either of us. It is my way of life which includes many others. We are referred to as "people like you"

I on the other hand respond the same way "people like you"

We are the outcroppings of class warfare. I don't like the way you think and you don't like the way I think or live my life.

Again this is nothing personal, In fact the only personal question I have ever directly asked is Do you smoke?

You seem to be an expert on Barry; so can you explain why he advertised having been born in Kenya and living in Indonesia and Hawaii for 16 years before he changed his numbers in 2007 when he entered the presidential race? Was his agent lying when he said Barry gave him that information. For 16 years?

Can you also explain why his father's race was shown as African when Negro was known and shown as the race of black people in 1961? When did African become a race? I've always though of it as a Continent.

Junior, you are just jealous of the people who were born into money while you had to suffer being born into a poor family. You reek of jealousy and you have the pretend being something you could never achieve. It is humorous and pathetic at the same time.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/5/12 at 3:26

yogi, I don't have time to debunk every conspiracy story you find on the internet. If you were a true patriot you would do some research before you posted things so as to not lie about the POTUS. But you personally dislike him so you believe any line of crap you read on conspiracy websites then make the assumption it is true and want other people to do your homework for you. You are a traitor and an embarassment.

By: Rasputin72 on 12/5/12 at 3:31

Blanketnazi......You have one fact correct. I was born to a poor family. Your other views are nothing more than assumptions

They are your perceptions of me. I learned years ago that if someone perceives something to be real. It IS real in their mind.

This perception may have absolutely nothing to do with the truth.

I do not care in the least what your perceptions are. This is a forum of phantoms. For all I know you are a paraplegic but I do not care. My perception of you is that you have been hit more times than Joe Louis and are reading this post with a cigarette dangling from your lips.

Whether this is true does not matter. What matters on this forum is how we respond to the written word. It is called internet entertainment.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/5/12 at 3:36

That's funny, Junior. However, I have more than perceptions to work with. You are a low-life liar and cheat. It was very entertaining when Nemo figured out who you are. I enjoyed that immensely so yes, it is internet entertainment. I enjoy tracing people because it's like a puzzle and a personal challenge. You leave quite a trail so figuring you out was not all that much of a challenge. You are a poor fake. LOL

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/5/12 at 3:36

slacker thinks I have a pocket protector and a visor. Perhaps you should add that to your hallucination.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/5/12 at 3:46

That is a lie Rasputin. You knew I was human before you made the invitation. You just realized that I would not back down from your cowardly invite. .

By: Rasputin72 on 12/5/12 at 3:48

Blanketnazi..........I am sorry to inform you that this poor fake and low-life liar and a cheat does not care about anything other than making sure that you are reminded of your lot in life and the failures that have led to your political posture.

If making me out in your perception as someone who does not exist I cannot do anything about that nor do I care to.

Tonight I will go to a blacktie cocktail and dinner party and you will find some pleasure or despair in what you do. This evening may be the most exciiting of your life. I do not care. If you want to tell me about this evening I will read it.

I gather that you garner great pleasure as does the other members of the Simple Six in venting the displeasure of your life against anyone who has a different opinion as yourself.

That is fine! That is what this forum is about. No matter the subject it all comes back to venting in one form or another.

Good Luck! I have to begin preparations for an evening that could be very boring or one of great memory.

By: Rasputin72 on 12/5/12 at 3:54

NEMO......Your comment brings to mind a comment that I overheard my grandson say to a playmate during a visit to Atlanta a few years ago.

"You dont know Diddly and you dont know Squat" "Therefore you dont know Diddly Squat"

Got to run, Perhaps a good starter subject tomorrow.

Raspy - Do you paint your fingernails?

By: Captain Nemo on 12/5/12 at 4:00

Always the chubby fake, Rasputin be. When we were young, the old boy thought that the women would fall for a man of his size. However they like men with flat stomachs and tans skins. Ratputin was so jealous of his timing of birth. Not only was he poor, but he was an odd ship and pale shin.

Are you as rich as Warren Buffett .

By: Captain Nemo on 12/5/12 at 4:03

How does it feel that we know who you are and you have no ideas as to who we are old boy.

I notice how you now want to call us trolls. Always the one to steal from someone pockets.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/5/12 at 4:06

He was born with nothing and in his twilight years he hides behind a child for courage. Why to go Ratputin.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/5/12 at 4:08

He could never face reality. Born a waste and still lives as one.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/5/12 at 4:13

shb way

By: Loner on 12/5/12 at 4:23

OK...I missed the Nashville 4:20....but I tried....anybody out there?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/5/12 at 4:23

Ray, your envy is so palatable. That's why you show up here day in and day out at all times of the day and night. You have an empty life and nothing to show for yourself. Enjoy your little delusion of grandeur - it's all you have, after all.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/5/12 at 4:24

Yep. Junior over here imagines me as an old war mare with a cigarette dangling from my mouth. Actually, I wish I were that hardcore! LOL

By: bfra on 12/5/12 at 4:32

Raspy is as transparent as a pane of glass!

By: Loner on 12/5/12 at 4:41

"blacktie cocktail and dinner party " = brownbag gin and supper at the Mission?

By: bfra on 12/5/12 at 4:44

LOL Loner!

By: brrrrk on 12/5/12 at 4:49

If Raspy is such the socialite, why does he bother wallowing among us?

By: Captain Nemo on 12/5/12 at 5:24

Raspy is a younger yogi. Lonely, senile and just desperate. LOL

By: yogiman on 12/5/12 at 6:13


The "debunk stories" aren't stories I picked up off the internet. That is, unless Barry was feeding them to someone to 'debunk' for himself.

But, consider them as debunk stories; simply put, why has Obama refused to simply identify himself. And don't [tell me] he has.

Or maybe you can explain Barry's "birth certificate" was printed using 7 different pages with different prints. And some that didn't exist In 1961?

By: Loner on 12/5/12 at 7:21

One wonders... would Yogi have been able to kick the birther habit, if Romney had won the election. Something tells me that Yogi would still expound on how and why BHO was never eligible to be POTUS....it's all he can think about....what a miserable existence....he's nuts....mean & hateful nuts....what a terrible way to spend one's "Golden Years".....bitter, frustrated, angry & bat-shit crazy.

By: ancienthighway on 12/7/12 at 6:05

If it wasn't for the comic relief these "Up For Debate" questions provide, I'd consider it a waste of time to even pose the questions. Where else can you go and find out from yogiman that the POTUS is a foreign-born Islamic Communist hell bent on destroying this nation? Very curious since I wouldn't think Muslims by nature of their class structure aren't all that keen on Communism with it's classless structure. You go tell the oil rich Sheik he has to give up his money.

As long as the politicians see everything they do as an "Us versus Them" conflict that can only end with "Us" as the unconditional, total winner, the country as a whole will suffer. That will never change though as long as the wealthy personified businesses behind the scenes of the "Us" and "Them" control the purse strings that get OUR representatives elected.
