Up for Debate: State fair lease negotiations

Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 12:29am

State fair organizers are at an impasse regarding a deal on where to hold the 2013 fair. What do you think should happen with the fair? How do you feel about the fair possibly not being held in Davidson County this year?

bfra, he apparently can't see beyond his nose because when you show him he's wrong he won't acknowledge it then the next day it's back to the same old thing. He is a blithering idiot.

I doubt if your parents were even thinking about you when I served, gdiafante. I joined the Navy in December 1947 and went to 'boot camp' in January 1948.

I was scheduled to be discharged in 1951 but we had got in that little disagreement with North Korea then and I was extended for a year.

Thinking we would be at war with Russia before that year was up I re-enlisted for 4 years. Hell, I didn't want to lose that 300 bucks re-enlistment bonus. You could enlist for 4 or 6 years back then.

yogi is a textbook ''Battologist.

By: yogiman on 2/5/13 at 2:31

B2,

This old fool is still waiting for you or one of your 'buddies' to prove your man Barry is in that office legally. Why haven't you?

You claim you have but you can't seem to remember when you did it. I can't, either.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/5/13 at 2:32

Very true, slacker.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/5/13 at 2:33

So, does that make him a Batty troll?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/5/13 at 2:34

Or a trolling battologist?

By: BenDover on 2/5/13 at 2:37

The memo is just cya on the Anwar al Awlaki hit that killed Awalaki and two other US citizens back in 2011.

Obama's now judge, jury and executioner of US citizens and not a peep from the peanut gallery.

If this was Bush it would be wall to wall 24/7 outrage by the media and their little mocking birds.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/5/13 at 2:38

And you would be supporting it full force if Bush had wanted it.

By: slacker on 2/5/13 at 2:41

A hunt and peck.. battologist.. the most annoying kind.

By: bfra on 2/5/13 at 2:41

Ben gets more like yogi every day! What gun are you going to threaten everybody with Ben?

By: BenDover on 2/5/13 at 3:21

I don't have any problem with it if they aren't arming drones in the US and if it's kept to this intended purpose war done against declared war enemies. The relationship between the police and citizens is necessarily different. Killing terrorists is one of the things Obama has done right except that he's drying up the intel. stream. I was just illustrating the hypocrisy in the matter because no matter how much you might deny it you know darn well the media and his critics would have piled on to Bush mercilessly about doing the exact same thing.

By: bfra on 2/5/13 at 3:25

No Ben, we would be much better off, if Bush/Chaney had used some of Obama's smarts & handled most problems differently. They screwed up for 8 years!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/5/13 at 3:29

Ben, and that's different from Fox "News" how???? And FYI, there are reports out there with anti-Obama slants when it comes to the drones. Don't pretend like it is all one sided.

By: BenDover on 2/5/13 at 3:48

Hey... all of this started with somebody making fun of Yogi for even bringing it up. You guys have your heads so far up Obama's @$$ though that common sense questions about presidential authority and citizen liberty don't even blip on your radar screen.

It's not my premises that need an overhaul.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/5/13 at 3:50

No, Ben. We were making fun of you bringing it up because you ASSUMED it mean using drones here in the U.S.

By: yogiman on 2/5/13 at 3:52

Your man Barry must be brilliant, bfra. It only took him 4 years to put this nation deeper into debt than all president combined before him.

If you have any intelligence, ask yourself why he is bankrupting this nation. When we become bankrupt he will declare a state of emergency and place us under marshal law.

Why did he contact the UN on their gun issues within two hours after inauguration?

By: bfra on 2/5/13 at 3:59

yogi doesn't have sense enough to keep up with any discussions, thus he reverts to his 4+yr. BS. Doesn't matter that everything he has ever put on the board is a lie.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/5/13 at 4:00

Like slacker said - battologist.

By: dargent7 on 2/5/13 at 4:01

Just skimmed the usual posting garbage....
Because I was born Aug. 19th and they knew Clinton would become President, and he was also born on Aug. 19th, and they also knew Obama who was born on August 04, they let me in early, in vitrio so to speak.
Everyone in the Bloomfield Hills, MI projects started kindergarden at 5. Me, Mitt Romney, Lee Iacocca, Henry Ford II....
Unless you were a complete imbicile, you went on to the 1st grade at age 6.
These posters will argue about ANYTHING!

By: Rasputin72 on 2/5/13 at 4:04

It amazes me that six people who could not collectively come up with 200,000 dollars post.opinions as though they have a resume of success

.
No wonder the 1% has put so much distance between themselves and the 47%.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/5/13 at 4:09

Well, dargent - as you can see, not much has changed around here. Sorry 'bout the 49ers.

By: bfra on 2/5/13 at 4:10

Raspy - Look what you put on the board and you can barely afford the cheap gin you drink. Your imaginary ego just isn't catching on with this group.

By: bfra on 2/5/13 at 4:11

Ditto on the 49ers, I really wanted them to win.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/5/13 at 4:14

bfra, what Rasp means to say is that he could total up all the women he has defrauded and not come up with $200K. But at least it spared him having to do a hard day's work.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/5/13 at 4:15

He's still mad that he wasn't able to take the condo away from Connie.

By: Rasputin72 on 2/5/13 at 4:17

Well, well if Bfra one of the dimwits makes a rebuttal.

I will agree with at least one thing in your short diatribe. Imagination runs amok among your little group of six.

By: bfra on 2/5/13 at 4:18

Blanket - If he tries his puton big talk, in person, I'll bet he gets chewed up & spit out more times than he can count.

By: yogiman on 2/5/13 at 5:11

My BS is a lie only to idiots like you and your "simple six" who don't know the facts, bfra.

By: yogiman on 2/5/13 at 5:12

I hope no one shoots me before Barry is exposed up front.

By: bfra on 2/5/13 at 5:24

yogi - Hold your breath until any of your BS is verified!

By: yogiman on 2/5/13 at 5:43

It seems funny, bfra, if I could find this information, why can't you "experts" find the same information I have.

I've admitted I'm no "expert" on this computer but I'll admit I've learned a little from you Barry fans throwing your "crap" at me.

I could probably forward much of what I've got to you but I just don't think any of you would be interested in it so why waste my time.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/5/13 at 5:43

What is the matter Raspy old boy. yogi getting more attention than you?

By: budlight on 2/5/13 at 5:45

: Captain Nemo on 2/5/13 at 1:25
Reading bud's last post I think her parents should be ashamed of themselves.

They are both dead. So leave my parents out of this or I'll have to post on bfra's, yours, and captain's. No, just joking. Would not do that under any circumstance. It's not right.

It's a shame that just one day the entire group couldn't just stay on topic. Without all the mean name calling. Just one day.

Oh well.

I started school when I was 7 and finished when I was almost 19, 12 years later.

He doesn't have enough sense to be ethical, budlight. He doesn't know what it means; but then, he's not alone on this site.

Just another little ridiculous post they can thank Barry for.

If they can't see "Obama" as the communist he is, they are "in the game with him".

Sorry, but seeing it twice isn't too much.

By: JayBee56 on 2/5/13 at 9:00

Ask01, your post on 2/5/13 at 1:31 makes a lot of sense. Good ideas.

By: justaskjake on 2/5/13 at 9:40

At an impasse regarding a deal on where to hold the 2013 fair? I say hold it at the fairgrounds.
