With good reason, you could call I Hate Canton lazy. After all, we've been gone for quite awhile. But, today, as we peruse daily comments from our Reppies-- and have an assortment of Villagers to chose from -- we are still struck by antiunion1's total idiocy as he continues to defend his anti-American policy of shopping foreign-made, as long as it's not union. At least dssteellman1 admits to shopping online as a way to stick it to the Stark County Taxman, though we doubt ds is particularly pro-union. As a matter of record, IHC shops online, too, mostly for convenience, but in day-to-day transactions tries to buy local. We particularity appreciate a nearby locally owned beer, wine, and cellphone store. Tax never occurred to us. Fast booze does.
Here we have antiunion1's two latest:, We are posting them in reverse order, to give a better picture of anti's pathology.
We've been gone again, but not without guilt. We've been writing for another venue and looking for a job. But we have a new idiot. We mean a real idiot. He or maybe he's a she, has driven us out of busy schedule for a moment (and hopefully longer).
Our newest idiot is antiunion1. antiunion1 consolidates the worst attributes of sourdough sal, Bruce Hodgins, mustangman, dssteelman1, ocean, Just S tom, and octapuppet into one truly idiotic Reppie.--and just when we thought nobody could be more idiotic than the usual suspects.
Yesterday the Rep published a nice letter: Best Option: Buy Local from Shirley Tope of Massillon, suggesting that people do their Christmas shopping at local stores, not online. Support the local economy. You know, the local economy that our local haters complain about incessantly.
Then pops in antiunion1:
antiunion1 i will only buy at walmart, I also buy what i can online...so i dont (as much as i have to ) pay stark county tax. I also DO NOT buy from union stores.
To uswapal - who thinks if you dont buy american your unamerican...well sorry my frieni would buy american once and only if unions are removed from society then ill buy american. OR if there was an american car company that was 100% non union then i buy one until then nope..ill continue to buy online!
or from walmart!
antiunion1 sorry typo in last comment ...instead of frieni it should say friend
Strange s/he only corrected one of 18 typos (counting lack of capitalization)
We're sure antiunion1 isn't a stranger to the Repor village idiocy, but since we don't have yet have a clue, (Hodgie Baby?) we're opening a new case file.
Village Idiot of the day, December 12, 2011: antiunion1
IHC was in the middle of writing two related Village Idiot posts when we decided to check in on our favorite Reppies a little while ago. After reading Bruce Hodgkins most absurd post yet, we decided to hold up on those belated VIODs and jump Bruce to the head of the line. Bruce, you see, is bemoaning the enactment of child labor laws. I kid you not.
Child labor laws, took money away from poor families and established jobs to be taken by union workers. They took the rights of the parent to teach the work ethic to their children, even now a child must get permission from the government to work at McDonald's if the child is under 16.
Bruce, here's a look at what you miss so much:
Thought I'd throw in some nifty worker housing.
Wait a minute . Despite your incestant rants against Communism, you never miss an opporutnity to praise the Chinese non-union slave cheap labor which you expect American workers to emulate. Like this:
You're more than a Villiage Idiot, Bruce, but since we pride ourselves in being family friendly, we'll leave it at that.
You Bruce Hodgins, are Village Idiot of the Day, October 28;, 2012. And maybe for the rest of the year.
We're doing some catch-up this evening or should that be this early morning?
We've long been struck by the pure lunacy of Bruce Hodgkins aka bhodgkins. Mostly, we think of him as a harmless crank in his dotage. He is. But sometimes his obstinacy in the face of truth is just difficult to comprehend. Is he that self-unaware. We all make mistakes. We all mispeak. We all post "facts" on Rep pages which...well, aren't facts. Sometimes we know it. Sometimes we know don't.
But what to make of Bruce's statement the other day during a worshipful Ronald Reagan moment claiming that the United States "liberated South Viet Nam." and his refusal to admit he is wrong. We dare say even Bruce's hero, Glenn Beck, would have a hard time spinning that one.
Last we looked, South Viet Nam does not exist as a country. Viet Nam (the unified country) is a "communist country." To the right is a picture taken after the massacre at My Lai. Maybe Bruce means the US liberated the South Vietnamese by leaving THEIR country.
To the best of our knowledge Bruce never served in Viet Nam, though he's the right age. Perhaps he had something better to do. In fact, he never served in the military at all, though he loves to cheer on the troops as they march on to foreign soil soothers may enjoy the American Way of Life he so enjoys. At least as long as a Republican is in office.
It's a little belated, but we are thrilled to name Bruce Hodgkins Village Idiot of the Day, October 21 2011. (and for a few days before, too).
Twitter decided to bail out on IHC today. After a ridiculously protracted attempted to get it flying again, we opened a new account and nuked the old one. If you'd like to Tweet us our account in ihatecanton2. Click on the link on the left sidebar to get to us. You can't miss it. It's red and black.
I Hate Canton has been on hiatus since June because...well we won't discuss it. Occupy Canton, though, has pulled us back to the rigors of the keyboard.
Saturday, anywhere from 70 to 150 Cantonians (depending on who you talk to) braved the weather and the slings and arrows of our Reppies to demonstrate their grievances against Big Everything downtown. I wasn't able to attend, so we only have the Rep report and a few scattered Facebook comments to judge the event--which sounds like a resounding success for a first try.
IHC has organized a few protests in our day, and we learned years ago that for every 250 people who say they'll show up, maybe one does. (We once, much to our horror, found ourselves a picket line of one at a grocery store on Raff Road during the Grape Boycott years.) That 70 (or 150) Cantonians came out is practically a work of genius--or a sign of desperation..
Occupy Canton, the local version of the anti-Wall Street movement sweeping the country, brought sign-toting demonstrators to the Central Plaza courtyard — a fitting location considering the surrounding bank and government buildings. Their homemade signs conveyed many of the Occupy movement’s central themes: “Corporations are not people. But we are!” “What American Dream?” “I can’t afford a lobbyist. I am the 99%” and “Remember, remember the 5th of November. The (r)evolution is here.”...
...Participants also signed a solidarity pledge that will be sent to local, state and national politicians Monday. The pledge, which had consensus approval, demands: The Supreme Court reconsider the Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision that prohibits government from banning political spending by corporations in candidate elections; the banking provisions that separated investment banking and commercial banks be reinstated; the Department of Justice intensifies its investigation of white collar and corporate crime.
We got the impression from the article that a good number of the occupation were middle age or retired. You know, the taxpayers who bought the American Dream not realizing they'd moved to Elm Street.
Young's article had hardly left her keyboard when our Reppies jumped in.. Not surprisingly the dirty smelly hippies of Wall Street have morphed intothe smelly, dirty pensioners of Canton..
Canton's biggest Idiot, Just s Tom, after a few lame attempts at humor decided to simply infantalize the crowd: AND the best part is the unemployed drifters and union plants,will soon experience WINTER...Global Warming will not help him.......the herd should get thinned-out very quickly and back to mom and dads basement they will go.... Newcomer Timothy, opined: I hope they did not leave their mess all over like in N.Y.
RobWolf questioned: Where is Rhode's National Guard of the 70's when you need them? Atomix piped in: I will never understand the term corporate greed. I have really tried to listen and understand but just don't get it. Business is in business to make a profit. A business will use the best resources at their disposal to make the largest profit possible for themselves as well as their investors. Like it or hate it but those with the money create the jobs. Recon, after writing that he pretty much agreed with the grievances, decided it was a good time to attack Don Cirelli, which led to a long, poorly spaced and worded rant about communists and socialists which included his critique of Marxism: Socialism is the first step in the process of developing the productive forces to achieve abundance and changing the mental and spiritual outlook of the people. It is the necessary transition stage from capitalism to communism. So you see we have far left Liberal nutcases like Donnie that support class warfare he thinks what is going on today is that The middle class is DYING in America and across the industrialized world because of Corporate greed when in fact is is dying beacause of our Corrupt Government-IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CORPORATE GREED Ted Jackson had a unique solution to our (and we suppose the world's) economic crisis: If all the occupy people would just put their money where their mouth is, they would start businesses and pay 'living wages' with 'full benefits' to their employee's. If you truely are the 99% then it shouldn't be hard to gather your resources and lead by example.
Bev Ballen, a slightly less obstreperous version of Sourdough Sal (where is Sal anyway?) decided to defend corporate greed. That 'corporate greed' that all the liberals and even socialists on this site speak of pays their government cadillac benefits and pensions. Public employee pension plans are some of the largest shareholders, even having significant influence on members of the boards of directors and even seats of these same fortune 500 boards.
I Hate Canton believes that all of these articulate posters deserve at least an Honorable Mention for their intelligent deconstruction of Occupy Canton ,but we don't want to give them all big heads either. Otherwise, next thing you know, they'll be self-conscious writers, rather than letting their natural idiocy flow.
So, today we'll not only give some newcomers a shot at fame, we cull the herd.
Honorable Mention goes to Atomix. His (or her, but would a woman call herself that?) for failing to differentiate the really rich (globalists, banksters, and their friends in government, from the simply rich, and the simply rich from the rest of us. Atomix doesn't get it that by really rich standards people like our own Frank Manello are just like the rest of us . Even Frank gets it. Thougoh Atomix probably deserves a higher rating, we are consoling him with an all-expense dinner date with Bev Ballen at the Waffle House on N. Cleveland followed by an all-night stay at the Crown Motel in exclusive Perry Heights. Just get her to her underpaid job on time the next morning.
Third Place goes to Ted Jackson (and we know who you really are, Ted, and have reported you to the real Ted Jackson.). If we were to follow your suggestions to the T, then we'd all be our own bosses and not have to worry about banks, unions, or bosses.
Second Place goes to: Recon for his or hers astute explanation of socialism's devastating spiritual affect on the middle class. We also give Recon props for nailing Don Cirelli as the chief strategist of the local Class War. The Politboro has not yet forwarded us its official portrait of Mr. Cirelli, so we are using one of Lavrenti Beria in the meantime First place: who else, but RobWolf for suggesting the National Guard be called in to finish the job they didn't in 1970. Demanding that the government murder his neighbors because they disagree with the government is The Canton Way. We are thrilled that Rob has the courage to voice his opinion.amongst a sea of dirty smelly pensioners overrunning the city.. Isn't that what Rob's right to free speech is about? Bolstered by this award, we expect great things from Mr. Wolf in the coming weeks.
We've been real tied up with end-of-the season tasks at our real-life job. We hope to be done by the end of the week. And no, I Hate Canton is not one of those deadbeat, over-paid union-sucking government workers Reppies so love to whinge over. Our end-of-the-year just happens to coincide with the state's.
We can't resist, taking a few moments, though, to post a new Village Idiot.
We knew when the Rep published the letter, How exactly would gay marriage harm the rest of our world? every nutter between here and Dalton on both sides would send in their two cents. If we had the time, we'd published a gaggle of these posts from people who think that all gays are atheistic Demos, Jesus preferred men, and the United States is on its last legs, due not to running 3-5 wars simultaneously, corporate bailouts, and globalist outsourcing, but because some men prefer the sexual company of other men.
No one, of course, has said a word against woman-on-woman sex. In fact, some of our most vehement queer bashers love to imagine women getting it on with each other, particulalry while they watch. As has been pointed out, if it doesn't involve men, then it can't be sex. Or as Bill Clinton put it more specifically, "I did not have sex with that woman." Unless sex involves a penis being stuck in where it belongs, it's not really sex.
So much for the unsexing of women.
Back on topic, IHC has been delighted with the response to the letter. In particular, the response of Dave Sexton. You remember him. Dave's the guy who chases johns and hos around with a video camera and bullhorn. (Go here for a free story; the Rep's "Chasing Hookers" story is in paid archives).
Now, it seems Dave not only has an aversion to commercial hetero sex sashaying through his neighborhood (well, we can't fault him much there; the least they could do is move it to a high end brothel in Jackson, away from his delicate video lens), but non-commercial male sex behind closed doors, or worse...the existence of same sex male afficiandos in general. Why Dave would rather leave the country, and even die, than have one of those guys touch him. Seriously.
Dave Sexton Excuse me while I vomit.....Oh all better now, what was the subject, oh -sorry I must excuse myself again, apparently just the thought of two guys kissing makes my stomach turn.The modern day Sodomites and there desire to gain acceptance for their wickedness is quite hilarious, but not to God.A country that promotes homosexuality as a 'normal behavior' is a country I would not want to be part of.
David Sexton Well , if it was a choice of death or being revived by a homo,l would prefer that he stand clear and let things develop as they should.I am ready and willing to meet my maker.Thank you so kindly for your praise of my unwavering commitment to morality.Consistency is the key to almost any door.
Now, we don't believe for one moment that our otherwise super patriot Dave will abandon the US for Uganda, where he could get away with killing a few queers for Christ, and certainly not for one of those poofy European countries. Obviously, even the Vatican isn't safe. No, he'll stay in Canton and complain about men whom he imagines want to do things to his amazingly attractive body.
Dave's suicide by queer threat though, is a possibility.
We can very well picture Dave being carried into the Aultman ER after being bonked in the head by a rock thrown by an angry crack whore who got fed up with his bullhorn--and then demanding the sexual credentials of all medical AND office personnel, just to guarantee that he won't be contaminated and can die, if necessary, pure of body.
Dare we suggest that Dave may have actually touched or been touched by a gay man at least once in his life? Surely, while collecting change, he must have touched hands with some gay Walmart clerk.
Certainly Dave has a right to his views on same sex marriage, but he's just a little too upset for comfort. Since Dave is willing to die for purity, we've found a special place in the afterlife for him: 24/7 male nurse porn videos made in the Czech Republic. Since I Hate Canton is family entertainment, however, we wont post links here.
For being such a What a Man! we award Dave Sexton, the Village Idiot of the Day, June 27, 2011.
Also big kudos to Mary Parker for posting the most colorful comment ever to appear in the pages of the Rep:
@victorissenguard Victor, everyone and anyone who knows me, knows that I don't see being gay as a bad thing. My mother had many gay friends, all male, so I grew up around gay people. I used to love Saturday nights, watching a gay roomer in our house, put on his drag out fit and I would sit in the bathroom and watch him put on his makeup and wig, and highheels, and just transform before my very eyes from 'Preston' to 'Tracy'. It was almost magical to me as a child.
I Hate Canton had hoped to get more up today, but our real life job got in the way. Maybe tomorrow.
In the meantime, one of IHC's faithful Facebook readers says he sent an email to Rep editor Jeff Gaugher, regarding the provenance of Irma Grese. Later he received a reply that she's been summarily removed from comments like her foremother summarily removed residents of Bergen-Belsen, but without the dire results. Perhaps, Irma's friend from Ravensbruk, Erna Wallisch can replace her.
We are accustomed to attacks on the American Civil Liberties Union. A good half of the US population believes that civil rights are downright unAmerican, unConstitutional, and well...Communist. We are, in fact, old enough to remember when back in the 1970s, a large prominent news outlet (Time Magazine maybe?) took a national poll on the Bill of Rights. The majority of respondents declared them "Communist." Being a traditionalist, we are elated to see that nothing has changed since then but... is I Hate Canton the only person bored with the Commie meme?
The ACLU says the Cleveland suburbs of Bedford and Shaker Heights and the Columbus suburb of Dublin allow only incumbent office holders to appear in their parades. The group says that violates the free-speech rights of other candidates.
IHC agrees. We find it unconscionable that politicians, unless they're sitting in office, be barred from Fourth of July parades. This exclusion seems grossly biased. Even though we ourself, love politicians, we can commiserate with Dublin spokeswoman Sandra Puskarcik's defense of her city's policy:
Puskarcik tells The Columbus Dispatch her city adopted limits after residents complained about boring parades filled with candidates.
Still, if Independence Day isn't about politicians, then what holiday is? The Declaration of Independence was drafted by one of the greatest-ever American politicians: Thomas Jefferson (with a little help from other politicians.) And of course, politicians signed it.
That fact, though, doesn't stop leno6, who we have no reason to believe is an anarchist, complaining about the ACLU's interest in packing parades with pols.
The ACLU should be declared unconstitutional,and made to shut down.It is a communist organization form in the 1920's to destroy America with America's constitution.Their are terrorist against everything that makes America,America. It is the citizens right to invite who ever they wish to their parades.Does this mean the football hall of fame will have to have basketball,baseball,and hockey players in their parade too. See how stupid this is.
Again, we love politicians. A few years ago we marched (or should I say ran, since much of the time was spent running up and down the street passing out lit) in a Fourth of July parade for a probate candidate. Besides being good exercise, a parade is a good pick-up venue.
We understand, of course, that some people find politicians offensive; not the kind of people you want in your neighborhood or your parade. To get around this problem, we suggest that all candidates AND incumbents be barred from marching and riding and glad handing in parades. Then none of them can cry discrimination, unless the disenfranchised, as a class, file suit.
We have no idea who leno6 is He is probably new wine in an old skin. God knows, he's ready to burst. We'll be writing a longer piece tomorrow on a gaggle of villagers, but for today, we are happy to award our new contender, leno6, Village Idiot of the Day, June 22, 2011.
The report didn't mention who had the sex and who had the crack.
The gentleman in question claims he was hurt when people "started shooting at him", and he was forced to jump out a second story window--sans pants and underwear--to seek safety at Sliman's Printery across the street. Police say that doctors at Aultman determined our friend was bleeding from broken window glass, not gunshot wounds.
Since Just S tom is sleeping, and is ocean busy rehabilitating herself driving the deserving poor to food pantries this week (go here for her comments), we are happy to name Pantless Man, Village Idiot of the Day, June 17, 2011. We are enclosing with his award a 5-year calendar to remind him that the first Friday in May, not the third Thursday in June, is worldwide No Pants Day .
If anyone doubts that Irma Grese is our one and only Octopup, check out her latest. Traditionally, Octo, under its various personalities, liked to accuse Don Cirelli of well....look at the comment to this Letter to the Editor. You'll see.
We expect the worse. **** is the Rep's naughty word default. As in ****tail and former Canton mayor Charlie Bab****
Don Cirelli Tell ya what, garden slug (a.k.a.) 'Irma Grese' - why don't you come out from under that rock use your real name while posting libelous comments in here? I got two words for ya, Honey: 'Alan Schulman'. Wanna play some serious ball? Try it again under your real name. This time it won't be the Sheriff who comes after your house.
Waiting to hear your reply Irma.
Wonder how long "Irma" will remain online? Only one person writes this crap now that the dime's dropped?
Well, that didn't take long! Irma is gone. And, we bet she's gone from the Rep, too. You'll only find her comment archived here.
We don't want to prolong your pain any longer than necessary--or ours-- so we will put Just S Tom to bed for the remainder of June, unless he really out Tom's himself., especially on some trivial matter. Besides, with all his awards, we don't want him to get a head the size of a Kraus Party Pizza.
That said, though, we are posting one more biker post from tom that appeared late yesterday, and a backslap from his buddy csdunson. No rewards for any.
Harley Davidson and its union have a great relationship....THEIR UNION cannot make threats or act like greedy lil babies...
Harley stated their bottom line...if they strike...The company will move to a State with right to work options......PERIOD.
UNIONS stick to budget and to the point....no hostage taking
i love Harley Davidson....and Harley likes ME.
Nighty night, Just S tom. Don't let the bed bugs bite! Of course they wont bite. Millionaires don't are immune from bedbugs! Only unionists and liberals have them.
And now for cs:
What kind of turnout did the thugs get this time ?
We have some questions for cs:
When, in the eyes of conservatives such as yourself, who worship security at any cost, did safety services become "thugs."
When, in the eyes of conservatives such as yourself, who constantly complain about the great unwashed and uneducated of Canton, did teachers become "thugs."
Does union membership cause thuggery?
If you don't know if someone is a union member are they a thug or are they exempt from thuggery until otherwise exposed?
Are fire fighters so thuggish, threatening, and frightening that you would refuse them entry to your property if your house were on fire?
Are EMTs so thuggish, threatening, and frightening that you would refuse them entry to your home if your mother had suffered a stroke?
Would you refuse police intervention if your wife were being held at gunpoint by a deranged neighbor?
Would you, or have, you pulled your kids out of school to protect them from the greedy claws of scruffy union thugs?
Do you refuse to register your car, a deed to your home, pay a traffic fine, walk on a clean floor in government buildings, or talk to a government-employed secretary out of fear of union assault from those who do that work?
If your child grew up and joined a union, would you still speak to him or her?
IHC didn't check Sunday's offerings until a few minutes ago. We were not surprised to find that majon and Just S tom continue to claim bikers for the Republican Party--or as they like to call it, the GOP. Below are their latest contributions:
majon Just S Tom. You know you and your new framed letter are on the money.
I was refering to how you me and others. Produced the revenue for those bikes.
They ride against us.
After yesterday's declaration, we expected a biker backlash. We mean, who do majon and tom think they are speaking for bikers? That would be like us speaking for everybody who hates Canton.
Last night I Hate Canton sent out its crack crew of undercover investigators who secretly videotaped bikers preparing to descend on Canton to root out and straighten out Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee. Here is our exclusive report:
This is scary stuff we know! We've warned majon and Just S tom. It's up to them now. We'll even help them out by not naming them Sunday's Village Idiots.
PS We suggest our dynamic duo not disguise themselves as sheep.
On Saturday, We Are Ohio will host motorcycle riders statewide in a rally and “Ride to Kill the Bill” around the Statehouse in opposition to Senate Bill 5, which limits public-employee unions’ collective bargaining.
Prior to the ride, bikers will gather at meeting points to motorcade into Columbus.
Well, you can imagine the response to this. For example, who knew that "real bikers" are Republicans? Just S tom, that's who:
Just S tom REAL BIKERS are GOP....REAL BIKERS are for FREEDOM
Real Bikers avoid this ride at all costs...
Just S tom nobody is going to ride for Obama and his socialist ways
joined in by tom's bitch, ocean
ocean Hells Angels wannabes!
Just enforce the BILL!
Real bikers wouldn't support it either.......what business would it be of their
to which tom replied:
Just S tom LOL...Hells Angels are for total freedom (some good some bad) .....they would not support this junk.
We're really tired of awarding Just S tom for his idiocy (IHC believes he holds the record), so we were happy when majon took a shot at it.
I would bet that more than 55% of those bikes were paid for with money earned by public workers or money recieved through entitlements.
We wonder if majon's employer controls how he/she/it spends their paycheck. If so, we suggest that $6.95 a month be withheld to limit Mr/Mrs/Ms majon's ability to read more than a socialistic 20 free news articles a month on the Rep site.
Beyond majon's pecuniary concern over how public employees spend their easily-worked paychecks, we're wondering what kind of "entitlements" bikers would get to purchase their bikes. Pensions? Or maybe they accrue enormous amounts of sick and vacation days to cash in at early retirement to finance bikes, broads, and booze. We'll bet public worker motorcycle owners actually took jobs with the state county or city simply to finance their jones for bikes. (see picture at right for an example of a pimped out gold bike owned by a typical county recorder clerk.)
Having spent some time (but not too much time) years ago with a member of the Cleveland Hell's Angels (they were located in a big ol' white house around E. 67th or E.69th, if we remember correctly) and a couple Outlaws who made their way to Canton, we are pretty sure that these working class guys would have kicked Just S tom's ass, locked up ocean in a bathroom, and spent their entitlement money on their bikes.
It's seldom we see the GOP compared favorably to outlaw bikers--at least openly--and we want to give credit where credit is due, but we gotta go with majon, hands down, on this one.
Village Idiot of the Day, June 11, 2011: majon.
Just S tom and ocean share second place kudos.
I Hate Canton also offers all prize winners an introduction to "real bikers."
Under the old pre-Gatehouse regime, Dave Kaminski made posters use their real names. Rumor has it that Kaminski even made in-person visists to offensive suspects to see if they were real people. We haven't seen Campbell since Gatehouse-facilitated cranky handles became socially acceptable,though as you'll see below, we've thought he was lurking under a nom de plume all along. Then on Wednesday, Campbell popped up as the author of a Letter to the Editor: Obama is Anti-American, and Should Be Kicked Out of Office.
We won't post the entire letter here , but it's so wall-bouncy Campbell makes Bruce Hodgkins look sane. The letter deserves a good look. Here's part of it:
[Obama's] foreign policy is embarrassing. He has purposely gone out of his way to insult our best long-term allies, particularly Great Britain and Israel. We should all, both liberal and conservative alike, be upset at the way he has exalted communist thugs and has depreciated America in the process...
...Obama has also demonstrated that he is devoid of any sort of absolute moral system. He denounces Christianity at every turn — even while claiming to be a Christian, go figure — and tries to strip anything that smacks of a moral system from his government policies. Remember when he made fun of those who “cling to guns or religion”? This was his way of attacking decent, God-fearing people like you and me and was a clear attack on that which has been the backbone of America.
He is anti-American and ought to be classified as an “enemy of the state.” People, we deserve much better than this guy. Let’s kick him out of office!
Well! as Jack Benny used to say. He certainly told Obama. And us! We wonder just how "we" should kick Obama out of office. Call in Col Qaddafi's mercs, or better, since ObamaMan has insulted Israel, how about IDF?
To be clear, we are not an Obama or Demo cheerleader. We have plenty of problems with his government, but our objections are based on facts, not hallucinations conjured after a night of mushroom ingesting in a backyard tent.
We've been waiting for Mr. Campbell to post back and tell us which of the five Communists left in the world, Obama has "exalted." And when and how did he "Denounce Christianity." We know we would never have slept through that one. Mr. Campbell's worst accusation that clinging to "God and guns," is something only decent, God-fearing people like him and his imaginary friends do is simply not acceptable. We can't speak for God clingers, but we can assure Mr. Campbell that many indecent people, I Hate Canton in particular, cling to our guns tighter than Eitienne humps our leg. How else could be protect ourselves from the likes of Mr. Campbell and his friends?
So far, there's nearly 100 replies to Mr. Campbell's bombast. We especially like this response: :
The most ludicrous letter to the editor - maybe ever. I think the author is quite possibly deranged.
Of course, our $8.7 millionaire praised in with the ludicrous:
Just S tom THE BEST LETTER OF 2011 100% TRUE
JIM.....with all due respect and heterosexuality ...I MUST SAY..
YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL MAN.......
Followed by the equally ludicrous:
Just S tom i printed it.....framed it.
Jim...ya left out alot more about this disaster in the White House....but what was said was perfect.
and this tete a tete between tom and his bbf ocean:
ocean the republicans need Chris Christie ....he'd give Obama a run for his money!
And when he won,he'd turn this country around and eventually we'd be the powerhouse country we used to be.
My pick would be Christie for pres. and Herman Cain for vice pres..
Just S tom Christie is the only guy who can beat him..
Guiliani will try.....
America may be stuck with this loser liberals love for 4 more years....God help us.
7 bucks a gallon....4 wars..and 12% unemployment.
Followed later by:
Just S tom
The Democrat machine hate Religion, Blacks, and women.........
drinking coffee and looking at me new framed ''BEST LETTER EVER''
Jim...write another one please......keep on going. Plenty of material here.
At this point we got a het-up Patrick Leper who thinks that Obama's relationship with big bankers and big fill-in-the-blank is "socialism."
PLeper It is Obama's disdain for prosperity that is most apparent. The very minute any person or group shows an affinity for getting ahead, he comes up with a new confiscation plan. If the stock markets are up, he talks higher taxes. He's become the poster child for wealth confiscation and redistribution. Simply put, the guy hates capitalism and all it stands for. Opportunities?-forget it, he kills those off like a trained sniper. That's what you get for putting a community organizer in office - way to go morons
Then tom pipes in twice:
Just S tom McCain was down in the polls until he picked SARAH PALIN...SHE ENERGIZED the party...McCain was a horrible candidate and ran THE WORST CAMPAIGN in AMERICAN HISTORY.....
Obama couldn't lose.....
.AND NOW we have THE WORST PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY....
Mary V Parker...you have to defend your vote....but you really cannot. Anything you say is wrong....period.
Just S tom GREAT LETTER .......i still love my framed copy.
It goes on and on, but we've had our fill, and you probably have, too.
It's not surprising that Just S tom's rah-rahing has made people in this thread as well as in private conversations believe that he is actually Jim Campbell. Who else but the author would frame the letter and tell us that he has?
There is just so much here. In fact, we took some of the comments off due to space and patience considerations. The number of comments though gave is a thought. If the Rep or Gatehouse is short of cash, then instead of dunning readers a reading fee each month, why not charge them to read and write comments? The dumber, less comprehensible the comment, the higher the charge.
Our runner-up Village Idiot of the Day award goes to: PLeper. He probably deserves a higher award, but by using correct spelling and grammar he raises his remarks to a readable level.
Our third place goes to ocean for even thinking that Chris Christie has a chance to beat Obama for president. Having had some dealings with Christie in our alternative life, we don't even know what to say about that one.
Second place goes to our veteran winner Just S tom. We were especially impressed with his "with all due respect and heterosexuality." What a keeper!
This leaves only Jim Campbell, for setting off this explosion of thoughtful intelligent discussion. Give a standing ovation to Jim Campbell, Village Idiot of the Day, June 10, 2011. Welcome back!
Finally, we give a Gold Star for Astuteness to John Young Please keep 'em coming.
