You made a comment about our "agreement" last night. Who was the first to get this BS back in the game? Was I supposed to ignore the comments made earlier by your co-posters in the game? No way, Hosea.

yogi - There has been no BS directed you. ONLY the truth! Now about the 2 yr. enlistment, I also know it was available during the '50s.

Hosea? Do you mean "Jose"?

BTW, here's a list of the prayers scheduled for the DNC.

No Muslim prayers at Democratic Convention, but Cardinal Dolan will give closing prayer

As for the Muslim distortions that have gone viral, there will be no Jumah prayers at the Democratic Convention by the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs. There will be a gathering of Muslims on Friday, August 31 at Marshall Park in Charlotte for an open-air prayer, and other events are planned for around the city as well. It is, however, only one of the 1,000 non-official events that are occurring in Charlotte over the next week.

As the Charlotte Observer noted, these events are timed to coincide with the Convention but are not part of the convention unless they have the Democratic Convention logo. The Jumah Congregational Prayer does not have a DNCC logo.

Blanket - yogi only haunts garbage sites, nothing he (cuts & pastes) is based on facts. Add: even none of his comments are based on facts.

Well,Well it seems that the villagers make up their own forum discussions. Perhaps the NCP should just drop any attempt to direct the subject matter.

Maybe NCP should just call this forum , BLURT OUT!

My guess is that of 101 comments 94 of them were made about the personal unhappiness caused by our politicians. Memories of the Titans be damned.

I have learned today that Jews are evil and free stuff is good. Romney is bad and Obama is the purveyor of free stuff. Obama is a citizen of a country of Yogis choosing.
Yogi is a punching bag for people for most of the villagers. Yogi is a glutton for punishment and Ben Dover took the day off.

Tomorrow there will most likely be a new subject. The only thing that may change in my second and third paragraphs is that Ben Dover may make a comment.

I, of course will still be thankful for the material things and good health that my lifetime has brought about. As the years roll by, I become more and more convinced that being of ill health and perhaps talent along with an absence of a comfortable cushion of discretionary income will make one an advocate of free stuff. I am sure as there will be an apple crop in Washington state that Obama was certain of this when he created his class warfare campaign.

There is nothing like seeing all the things that can be bought on television and enjoyed by the productive class that brings out the class envy among those that have no hope for ever having these things. I see these traits on this board every day. I am still wondering what the Jews did to LONER that causes him to jump time with such passion.

Normally he is a well spoken liberal who could have achieved more but was perhaps a little less motivated (for lack of a better word.)

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 3:52

I'm not going to reveal any details about my time in the US Army...I have already done that repeatedly...no more....I was taking the troll at his word, that he served, now he wants me to show proof? Go screw!

Let's change the subject and ignore the knucklehead, shall we?

By: bfra on 9/4/12 at 4:02

Loner - One reason I question yogi's service, every service person I know is well aware of the 2 yr. enlistment. So to believe yogi, I would have to see the papers.

By: bfra on 9/4/12 at 4:04

Raspootin = From what I have seen of & about Loner, seems he has achieved more than you, so what is your problem? Free breakfast at the mission wasn't up to par?

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 4:16

Thank you, Rasputin, for the character analysis....both mine and that of those who want "free stuff" from the government.....we are under-motivated....slothful, perhaps....but you, on the other hand, are a role model for the protestant work ethic and up-by-your-own-bootstraps ambition.....you earned everything that you have, by working hard....the rest of us are simply lazy parasites on society - worse than worthless.

Should we lazy moochers just do the right thing and euthanize ourselves, for the common good? What do you suggest, as a solution to this problem, which you seem to mention in every post that you make?

Read my posts, Rasp....as I said, if I hated the world's Jews, I would support concentrating them into a tiny Jewish state, in the middle of Muslim country....this would facilitate their extermination.

IMO, we should invite the Jews to come to the USA and assimilate here, as US citizens, instead of bankrolling their failed experiment in apartheid theocracy... and condoning their nuclear scofflaw behavior... and their belligerency towards their neighbors.

Zionism is, in reality, counterproductive to the goal of preserving the Jewish People from destruction.....time to pull the plug on the failed scheme.

The US is being sucked into eternal, expanding, Judeo-Christian vs Islam, Holy War....the Founders would be shocked to witness this.

Is it anti-Semitic to put America's national interests above those of the Jewish State? Or is it anti-American for our federal officials to take money from the Israel lobby?

What's good for the Jewish State is seldom really good for the USA. We have been sold out....am I a "Jew hater" for pointing this out? Give it a rest, Rasp.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 4:27

Thanks for the kind words, Bfra. I measure my contribution(s) to society in a different manner than Mr. Grey Poupon does.

The Rasp and the Lone One do not share core values, it seems......but I sometimes think that he is pulling our legs here.....I suspect that his online persona and his real persona are very different.....the man may be in fantasy land...I don't really know.

Just as Yogi overworks the usurper thing, the Rasp overworks the exploited aristocrat thing.....many would say that I overwork the US-Israel special relationship thing.....maybe so, but unlike class envy and birther issues, Israel could quickly drag the world into a catastrophic nuclear exchange.....virtual Armageddon....it's a bigger issue than those other two issues, IMO.....and few, nobody in a position of power, seem to see the looming disaster.

By: Rasputin72 on 9/4/12 at 4:39

LONER.........While your first and second paragraph certainly offers some merit, I have a more humane soolution. Why not stop all of the "free stuff" This should certainly offer some motivation to the unmotivated and lazy moochers. Of course the crime rate will go up but if we ramp up capital punishment this will subside in a couple of decades.

Now, I do not remember saying that you "hate" Jews. I recall saying that you jump time as you did in your rebuttal to me when Jews are mentioned. I also would like to remind you that no place in my post ever said you were wrong in your opinion. I only said that it brought forth a passion that I normally did not see. I am inclined to agree with your opinion. I am convinced that our advesarial relationship with the Muslims and the cause of 9/11 was 100% in focus with your statement that the U.S. has been "sucked into this ever expanding Judeo Christian vs Islam Holy War"

You understand as do I that this has been a direct result of the Jewish lobby group and their moneyed influence on Washington.

As I stated before, I'm no expert on using a computer. I'll admit, you and your fellow posters know much more about using one than I.

It's just a damn shame that's the only intelligence you can share.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 4:59

Rasp: You wrote: "I am still wondering what the Jews did to LONER that causes him to jump time with such passion."

That sentence seems to insinuate that I am seeking some sort of revenge for a past wrong done to me, by a Jew or by Jews.....I think that reasonable readers would interpret your words that way....that is how I read it.

I care about the US national interests and I can clearly see that the conventional wisdom is wrong....and that is because of Israel lobby influence in Washington....our politicians are bullshitizing each other on this shameful practice....to me this is borderline treason.

If your post is genuine, then we do share common ground on the Israel lobby and Holy War issues.

Israel has demonstrated its perfidy....I simply do not trust them at all.

I never heard of a 2 year enlistment when I was in the Navy. Did they have different programs in any of the other services? When I went it you could received your discharge on your 21st birthday if you had served at least 3 years, but when I re-enlisted in 1951 they would only take 4 years from me.

By: Rasputin72 on 9/4/12 at 5:07

LONER.....My online persona and real persona are a very close match. I must admit that I enjoy very much the entertainment. In my world everyone has exactly the same opinion as I. Only on this little forum do I get a chance to see what another classification of people have to say about the political world we live in.

Most of what I post I believe. The rest is pure provocation. The purpose of course is separate what they hate versus what they believe.

Believe me, I truly have learned a lot about how a person like Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama have gotten elected. You will not like what I am about to post but in my world you wasted a lot of grey matter in your trivial pursuit of life. In your world you are an accomplished citizen.

I have come to learn that we are both correct. This is a result of my being able to hold on to my core values but being able to see your point of view through this forum.

As I said in an earlier paragraph, this is entertainment as well as a learning situation for me.

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 5:08

No Blanketnazi2, I meant Hosea.

And I'm not interested in going to the Islamic prayers as you. You can pray whatever prayers you wish with them.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 5:11

Ignore the troll, Bfra, please....no amount of factual material will convince that goofball of something that he does not already believe....his is the perfect example of a closed and bigoted mind....with an obvious sadistic streak....addlled by decades of hate.....he is a most unsavory man....he is not worthy of any attention, IMO...except for the attention of the Webmaster and the Secret Service, perhaps.

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 5:22

I've thought it was comical from the beginning Loner, that your could "understandably" rant and rave about Israel and the Jews but I was dead wrong on my "ranting and raving" about Barry Soetoro being in that office illegally.

Shall we rant and rave some more? You pick yours and I'll pick mine.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 5:27

Rasp, one man's trash is another man's treasure....one man's pain is another man's pleasure....I could have made more money, perhaps....or gone into politics....I am grateful to just be alive...never had the will or inclination to want to control people, I suppose....some say that I'm generous to a fault.....too forgiving, maybe....to me, it's more important to be a good guy, than a powerful guy.

I have kids and grandkids....they think that I did pretty well, that's what counts.

By: Loner on 9/4/12 at 5:33

I've had enough...let the troll talk to himself....Loner out.

By: Rasputin72 on 9/4/12 at 5:42

LONER......You are a good man! We may have a different set of values but I recognize and appreciate people like yourself.

By: yogiman on 9/4/12 at 5:50


In your 5:27 post you made the comment saying; "Israel could quickly drag the world into a catastrophic nuclear exchange...virtual Armageddon...it's a bigger issue than those other two issues, IMO...and few, nobody is a position of power, seem to see the looming disaster.

That is my argument on the Obama issue. Nobody knows the looming disaster if he is allowed to remain in office.

I'm going to throw my argument one more time: Obama was allowed to "win" that office even though no one knew his identity, and they still don't.

You can say anything you wish, but why did you vote for a man when you didn't even know his name?

He made the statement about the USA needed a "change". What did he mean by change? Why did he make that comment about building an "in house" military as strong as our regular military. What has he accomplished in that field since 2008? If you're a communist, I understand your thoughts. But if you aren't, you better wake up and start looking.

You commented about having children and grandchildren. If he stays in that office, I feel sorry for them. Sorry, I can't feel sorry for you because of your backing him as you have in repudiating me.

For all of those making comments about the Romneys keeping a horse, even though it's used for Mrs. Romney's health benefits because of her MS problem, I thought you might enjoy this "joke".

"So the Romneys are selfish in keeping a horse to support? And employing a groom with a family to support. And paying for feed that's sold by someone with a family to support and transported in trucks built by someone with a family to support and manufactured in a factory by people with families to support from stuff that's grown by farmers with families to support. And having a barn built by construction workers with families to support with materials trucked by drivers with families to support in a truck built in factories by workers with families to support.

"That sounds like that one horse has done more to put Americans to work than that horse's ass in the White House."

I see the Great Satan had to send his wife out onto the stage to beg and plead for four more years. Why? Because she is not done spending our money going on lavish vacations.

I hope he doesn't get to pull that martial law stunt off, which he will if he can when he sees he's losing he election.

I can't see him taking a loss at ease.
