Bud reads an ad and would rather believe that than going to the effort of finding out what is true. What a moron.

By: jvh2b on 11/12/12 at 3:03

If it's an ad on the city paper it MUST be true.

Excuse me while I go my date with my Frnch model...they said so on the internet...so it MUST be true.

Time to put bud in the home....

What..... only two choices!?

They have Frnch Models in Antioch, bud was one. That did not go over very well, for some reason.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 3:13

brrrk, was that rich guys to choose from or the degree of stupid?

By: jvh2b on 11/12/12 at 3:14

And just for the record Bud - the ads you see are NOT specific to the city paper.

Google does this thing called tracking your web searches and the sites you go to (put on your tin foil hat now!) and then presents ads to you based on those searchs/hits.

For example, since I have looked for cruises and wedding bands on line, I get a lot of ads like that.

In turn, you visit a lot of sites nuttier than squirrel poo, so you get ads that fuel your stupidity!

Understand?

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 3:17

Why yogi and Rasputin think themselves to be rich, because they have see it on the internet. LOL

I think that what caused her to Hispanics running her husband down the street in poke doted Jet Skis.

lol, jvh! I doubt she can comprehend that.

But...Kim Komando said porn sites are blocked...

By: yogiman on 11/12/12 at 3:36

WOW! I can't believe it. I see where Mitt Romney didn't get one vote in 59 Philly districts.

Wonder who they voted for. It sure looks like a predetermined count to me. Wonder who it was that got those votes.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 3:37

But first you have to have the brains to block and not knock.

Many parts of Philadelphia and other big cities simply lack Republican voters, a fact of campaigning that has been true since Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal, Stanford University’s Rodden said.

In 2008, McCain got zero votes in 57 Philadelphia voting divisions. That was a big increase from 2004, when George W. Bush was blanked in just five divisions.

This is yogi proof that it was a fix. LOL

Larry Sabato, a political scientist at the University of Virginia who has studied African American precincts, said he had occasionally seen 100 percent of the vote go for the Democratic candidate. Chicago and Atlanta each had precincts that registered no votes for Republican Sen. John McCain in 2008.

"I'd be surprised if there weren't a handful of precincts that didn't cast a vote for Romney," he said. But the number of zero precincts in Philadelphia deserves examination, Sabato added.

What two lies are you talking about B2. Unlike y'all, I don't resent admitting I was wrong. So what did I lie about.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/12/12 at 3:45

Philadelphia's numbers were tilted so far in favor of Obama that one incredulous Republican revived the specter of voter fraud.

House Speaker Sam Smith, musing over "staggering" turnout in some city precincts and reacting to wrong information that "90 percent of the precincts in Philadelphia County turned out over 90 percent of voters," called the ability to get such numbers "questionable."

Smith's math does not add up. Voter turnout in Philadelphia was around 60 percent, according to state election figures.

State Sen. Vincent Hughes (D. Phila.) responded swiftly. He said Philadelphians came out to vote because they were tired of the "hard-right" Republican agenda.

"If they believe there was a corruption of the process, then go to court and challenge it. Show the people of Pennsylvania," Hughes said. "Beyond that, shut up."

Blanket - Blanks can't understand reasonable explanations. They try to turn it into their own simple minded conspiracy.

By: bfra on 11/12/12 at 3:49

The blank has never admitted being wrong & lies about his lies!

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 3:50

With the truth hitting the old imbecile over the head, yogi skidders back to his dark closet, to find some other conspiracy theory to fling.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/12/12 at 3:52

Romney was heckled when he visited West Philly and the Republicans have a hard time registering that they did not receive any votes there? Seriously, how out of touch can a person be?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/12/12 at 3:54

Madaline G. Dunn, 78, who said she has lived here for 50 years and volunteers at the school, said she is “personally offended” that Romney would visit her neighborhood.

“It’s not appreciated here,” she said. “It is absolutely denigrating for him to come in here and speak his garbage.”

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter (D) addressed protesters and the media, quipping that Romney “suddenly somehow found West Philadelphia.”

“It’s nice that he decided this late in his [campaign] to see what a city like Philadelphia is about,” Nutter said. But, he added, “I don’t know that a one-day experience in the heart of West Philadelphia is enough to get you ready to run the United States of America.”

Yet, the wackos are convinced it must be voter fraud!

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 3:54

Why don’t you use the UFO conspiracy yogi? You have not used that one in a while. Oh wait I just brought it up. That won’t work now. Never mind.

By: Rasputin72 on 11/12/12 at 3:58

It is almost martini time in my time zone. After the way I played today I probably will have two.
Nemo, I realize that this is personal but I have been under the impression that you were a Samoan. I somehow believe I was under a false assumption.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 3:59

Now this is just really smart. Branded with the shame of a Loser.

So, maybe that Romney face tattoo wasn’t such a good idea …

I saw that, Nemo! LOL!

By: yogiman on 11/12/12 at 4:01

Hold up there, dumba$$. You don't need anything to feed your stupidity. You're full of ignorance already.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 4:03

The Pigeon returns to strut. That is not Old Turkey you are drinking old boy. That is use paint thinner. It will kill you.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/12/12 at 4:04

That 15th floor apartment must make him light headed, Nemo.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/12/12 at 4:05

He drank some cheap gin and watched golf so he could imagine he was there.

By: yogiman on 11/12/12 at 4:06

I'll admit, dumba$$, I wish I was as rich as you claim I said I was. When was that? How much did I say I was worth? I'll take it.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 4:07

I think it is the first floor, Blanket. Janitors closet.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 4:08

Cheap gin would be high class for him.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 4:11

I have never clamed anything of the sort yogi, but I won’t tell bud. She thinks you are rich and if you let her keep thinking that….well you might get lucky

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/12/12 at 4:14

Nemo, you're correct. It is the first floor.

By: yogiman on 11/12/12 at 4:16

How do you know so much about Old Turkey, dumba$$? Is that what affected you so bad?

By: brrrrk on 11/12/12 at 4:19

Turns out the Secretary of State in Ohio is still trying to play games in order to insure a Republican victory in the next Presidential election.

Nope, actually it's 1502.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/12/12 at 4:19

Nemo, I guess he got tired of living in Inglewood.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 4:21

That is you best come back yogi. You are just pitiful and a disgrace to trolls all over the world.

By: yogiman on 11/12/12 at 4:22

B2,

I'll have to admit, I'm very jealous of you. You seem to have a huge amount of knowledge through your computer. So may I ask a simple question?

Can you explain to me how Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama was determined to be a Constitutionally eligible candidate for the presidency after he advertised he was born in Kenya?
That is before he was born in Hawaii. Thanks. I'll be grateful for that knowledge and do y'all a favor and shut the hell up.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 4:23

Oh really, Blanket. That is interesting to know.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/12/12 at 4:23

Why, he has a birthday coming up! Wouldn't you know......

By: slacker on 11/12/12 at 4:23

Considering the rain today.. Rasp. did well selling ''The Contributor.'' One nice lady gave Rasp. a ten dollar bill.. wanting five back, Rasp. took off running (slowly) giggling to himself.
No cheap stuff tonight.. Rasp will be having Popov.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/12/12 at 4:25

He'll be a birthday boy on December 1. I wonder if he and Connie will get together that day. You know, go hang out in the old 'hood and all.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/12/12 at 4:27

LOL slacker.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/12/12 at 4:28

Raspy, are you hangin' out in the Nations with your old friends on your birthday?
