The Piercing Truth

This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization. (in general use) extreme right wing, authoritarian, chauvinistic and/or intolerant views or practices. Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one group over another, national, ethnic, especially social strata or monetarily; a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach.

Repeat Posts

As you know, we love to have a good dust-up in the comments section. There's no better way to express your opinion and sharpen your mind than to engage in dialogue. For that reason we love posting comments especially the ones we disagree with.

However (and you knew this was coming), someone has gotten the idea that repeating the same comment over and over and over again, somehow makes their point more valid. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, even if the point is a good one repeating it again and again doesn't make it any more persuasive. More importantly, it keeps an interesting discussion from developing by clogging up the comments section with the same - and we mean the exact same - point.

Understand, we'll allow some duplication assuming that there might be a couple of posters who share the same point of view. But... duplicate posts are paired down to one post whenever we encounter them concurrently. Once we get tired of reading the same post over and over, then we'll reject all of them.

So along with keeping language to a PG-13 (OK, sometimes R) rating, know that repetition is gonna get weeded out - even if we agree with the point being made. Them's the rules folks, now have at it!

I know which post your talking about... it is the post that is on every comment blog that says something like, "put so and so on the Scamera camera." I have a suggestion that works really well
for the person that had posted that blog repeatedly. My suggestion is to go to Saturday Night Live Sketch submissions and post a sketch by emailing Patrick Loner. I did for the giant Pit next to the Balloon Fiesta that would be great for Shakespeare in the Park and guess what????? A new sitcom on television called, Parks and Recreation used that line about a giant pitt needing to be filled!!! Ha! Ha! Looks like Albuquerque is going to be a key source for the new sitcom! As I have already been busy emailing Patrick Loner all about Tingley Beach.

Yep. The Right Wing Wackos hate free expression. They pick and choose which of the "Four Freedoms" to honor. Opposing opinions are not tolerated here. Why am I even posting? This will probably not show up.

yep, why are you even posting? In fact why are you even reading this blog? You seem to hate it so much.

Two guys walk into the bar, sit down on a bench in front of the bartender and explain how much both really, really, really, really hate not being recognized
as community members. The bartender turns as says, "not true, Bambi over there (points)
to lady wearing little pasties
and tight shorts, says, "I recognize you every Saturday Night. Another divorcee and another
dollar for me." Both men turn and grin and quickly retort, "No, we only care about the community members who show up to church on Sundays, just what the people attending church think of us." The Bartender laughs and says, "I didn't think you two went to church on Sunday to begin with." The men get offended. One man asks the Bartender, "Do you go to church?" The Bartender replies, yes twice a year. Once on Christmas Eve and once on Easter. What happens next.... The Mayor and
his body guard leave. The Bartender wasn't good enough for their company!
