What asshole fact do you know that will ruin the fun for everyone?

Reddit best comments....
Worked in a liquor store. The same 25 or so people would come in every day and buy a pint of fifth of vodka. Every day. I would point out to them it is much cheaper over the long run just to buy a gallon. They would mostly shrug and buy their pint or fifth.
I realized later they were high-functional alcoholics who, knowing they would drink every drop available, just bought what they could consume daily and remain semi functional.
Spiders molt. When you see a dead spider, there's a good chance that it isn't actually a dead spider, it's just an exoskeleton. The spider is still alive, and it's bigger than before.
If you ever play Monopoly, and are playing by the "official" rules don't upgrade to hotels. There are a finite number of housing properties available. Get a group ASAP, fill it up with 4 houses ASAP and let it sit. Continue to buy property, fill em with houses. NEVER upgrade them to hotels, and you will win the game, as the other players will have no source of income compared to you.
Some, if not all, of the crew of the shuttle Challenger were alive and awake during their minutes-long free fall into the Atlantic following the break-up of the shuttle/rocket
Sea otters, cute as they may be, rape baby seals to death. Or. more accurately, the baby seals drown while being raped because the otters hold them down.

Trump can be his own worse enemy?

I denounce myself for ed!

Who knew sea otters are really privileged white Republican college males?

Good one ELB.

If Trump goes back to making "I will build a wall!" the centerpiece of his campaign he'll win going away. As an added bonus it'll push Lem's blood pressure through the roof. :^)

Talk about ruining my fun.

Wikileaks emails do not say what Republicans say that they do.

I cannot find a single damaging email. So far they're all bits of information, genuine honest people trying to understand events. People sharing ideas on how to counter expected Republican attacks.

A good deal of unnecessary smartass-ness from Sidney Blumenthal, (Two critical memos and drink 8 glasses of water) The memos mention nothing whatsoever about water or drinking or glasses.

Search Libya, search arms, search weapons, search Turkey and nothing absolutely NOTHING damaging so far. It's enough to make a person want to vote Hillary.

Info Wars video was suggested for me on youtube stating flatly wikileaks proves Hillary lied to congress. They show an email and claim it is damaging but they do not pause, they do not highlight the damaging portion. I opened the the exact memo in another window and read it through and it says no such thing. Rather the opposite, the new leader of Libya is concerned about the amount of arms flowing around his country and the impossibility of controlling any of it. Their problem is too many weapons already there, not bringing in new ones and not channeling arms to insurgents. Their concern is the opposite.

Searched J Christopher Stevens, two pages of results and it's all honest attempt at understanding the situation. Stevens in Benghazi to trying to access the amount and the flow of weapons.

After Steven's death a 2013 email about Steven's father, a lawyer, insisting this not be made a political issue. Stevens himself was not political. He worked for both parties. Came up through civil service and not through politics. And yet the Mormon guy, something with an R., Romney, that's it, DID make a political issue of it, vexing their efforts to understand and politicizing before the facts are understood.

Infowars lies in their video. They're assuming nobody will bother to check, I suppose. They say in the video "it's all there" and it is not.

Infowars show this Wikileaks email in their video as proof, or perhaps just showing what a typical email looks like and relies on our prejudices to fill in the blanks wrongly.

The narrator says, "Julian Assange says he has emails that prove..." Suggesting the proof is coming. (Meanwhile here's this thing that is not damaging.)

What a f'n bummer!

See for yourself. I would truly love being shown that I'm wrong.

I'm STILL searching for something damaging and so far I cannot find a single thread that could hurt Democrats, except for the fact that emails were hacked. So far, that is the single damaging thing that I can see.

Doesn't that ruin your fun? It does mine.

Wikileaks better come through with specific damaging material, specific emails, or else this is all just more partisan Republican horseshit.

Reading through hundreds of emails is causing me to rank Republicans as wicked as Democrats. In fact, Democrats are appearing lovelier, more honest, more sincere than Republicans.

I'm experiencing Stockholm Syndrome.

My fun is ruined more and more as I continue my search.

Name the email. They're numbered. Give us the number of the damaging email or stfu. That's my attitude now.

Chip, I do not have the exact numbers but there were DNC emails mocking some of their donors. I saw excerpts printed, and it was not on Info Wars.

Chip: Heavy has some links to DNC wikileak emails

Not as nutritious as I expected either. Hope the Mrs. didn't mind. :D

I saw the mocking ones on Guccifer, I think.

* made fun of woman's name Queenitia, or something
* made an innocent remark, "I love something" but nothing homo.

Those are the two I remember

There's also DWS rigging the system to favor Hillary over Bernie and everyone else downticket.

But I'm looking for proof of nefarious and cynical movement of weapons in Libya and not seeing what Infowars says is there.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Chip, that info war stuff is nonsense. I've seen no emails of that, plenty of hypocrisy and back biting though.

If there was movement of weapons, I seriously doubt it would be memorialized in an email.

From the rural route:

Feral tom cats will sometimes kill newborn kittens. Kittens grow up fast so they probably resent the competition.

Sows have been known to kill and/or eat their baby pigs. That's unrelated to accidental deaths where a sow will plop down to nurse her brood and one or two of the little piglets doesn't get out of the way in time.
