Howard Dean is so busy defending his "off the wall" statements that he has no time for fund raising.   When the Dems call upon him to "Show us the Money", what lame remark will he come up with...lol....  Some of the Democrats are surely not going to like that one bit,  just as they are not likeing what is coming out of his mouth now.

Truely is hard to believe he was at one time front runner and actually was considered for the job of President. YIKES!  He makes a better DNC chairman.  They made a fine choice picking him for that job.

I went to see "Star Wars" for my birthday when it first came out in 1977. That was a really fun birthday.

******* Y'know what I saw when I was a kid that was really good?  This movie called Sasquatch.   It came out in 1977, so I was ten.  Anyway, it really scared the heck out of me and my friends, but I've never seen it since.  I saw the videocassette in a mom-and-pop videostore in Tupelo once, but I couldn't rent it because I don't live close enough to Tupelo to have been able to bring it back.  My girlfriend at the time claimed she'd take it back for me, 'cuz she went to Tupelo a lot, but I knew she was a flake and completely unreliable, so I didn't go with that plan.   Anyway, Sasquatch is coming out on DVD in less than a week (on June 14 - which is Flag Day.  I like Flag Day - it's a patriotic American holiday, and you don't have the pressure of buying anybody a present.  Father's Day is also coming up... big pressure there.  Wouldn't be, though, if my dad wanted a copy of Sasquatch!  But, alas...).   Anyway, Sasquatch is coming out on the Sasquatch Horror box set, with two other movies... but those two movies are readily available (Snow Creature and Snowbeast), so I'm only really psyched about Sasquatch, since I haven't seen it since 1977.  It probably won't be as great as I remember, but, what the heck.   Time makes even the mediocre seem magnificent.

Ronald Reagan, by the way, has a stamp now.

Cheers,

Zwolf

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



I remember that movie and I was a little older when I saw it.  I don't think you'll be scared but you won't be disappointed either, the acting is bad enough to make it funny and the "Sasquatch" is lame enough to be a hoot.  Enjoy!   :lol:

Besides, it's more fun and intellectually-profitable (as well as peaceful) to hear Star Wars/Jaws stories than another round of "your side is all bad and my side is all good. Your side eats babies, causes plagues of rats, and gives poison milk to schoolchildren, while my side puts the rainbows in the sky, makes it rain delicious candy, and has magical unicorns fill the streets, bearing toys for all!" That gets old.

But if you feel that way, why not just let the thread die? Not giving it attention seems like a better strategy than threadjacking, imo.

I just want make sure that when there is another Bush Bashing thread that it's ok to flood the thread. Because I would hate to get warned  again.

Because for me Dean has shown that he not only does not understand why his party lost but that he is going to run it into the ground.

Okay, I'm not a mod in OT, but I'm asking all of you to STOP IT.  

If you want to discuss movies take it to Reviews or GMD.

You may not like those trying to get it back on track, or their point of view but this reactions is just insulting, and just as wrong way rubbing as their ( in your estimation ) absurdities.

Flooding the thread, by any one (s) is just wrong.

Gode there is an applogy towards yourself by me in AQG. I misread a post of yours where I thought you were supporting the flooding. When I reread the post  I saw my mistake and posted my applogy there and am doing the same here.

Alrighty, then, no more movie-talk from me.  I just thought it was a peaceful way to deal with pointless abusive slander, but apparently it's "rude" or something.  I could just get in touch with my inner-sonofabitch and light people up like Christmas, but that won't flow around here, either.   And whining about things like a complete tit is absolutely not my style (although it does seem to be pretty effective - get everybody busy walking on eggs with an impossible task like trying to keep Senor Neverhappy happy, and you've really got something.)

So, none of these things are viable.   And anything else I come up with isn't likely to be judged very well, either.  So, how 'bout a little help?  My methods don't seem to work very well for ya'll, and the "hey, how 'bout you just keep rolling over and taking it?" plan doesn't seem to offer much profit for me.  Ignoring it has only been taken advantage of.   So, how 'bout some help?  

Crack down on the source - not just the people who are trying to find ways to deal with it -  and the problem will become moot.

Cheers,

Zwolf

Having been around long enough to witness Robin tangling with some of the Internet's most abrasive personalities, including O Deus and the late and legendary Cronan Thompson and Gharlane of Eddore, it's kind of fascinating to watch her in action here.  This must be like the Jay-Vee league for her. ;)
