Bree Walker is an amazing woman...I have followed her career ever since she was featured in an article about how she refused to let the news producers hide her webbed hands on the air. I will have to see if I can stream her show..

Duffman

IMHO Cindy Sheehan was no service to this country (or her family). She made a fool of herself and those misguided enough to support her. I doubt her son (as a free-thinking volunteer) would agree with her ridiculous tactics. With all doe respect ma'am you need to do as merci offen suggests STFU...(and quit crying over spilt milk. .. ;)

Mungo

"Lt. Bryan Suits..... sent us of him (in the swim-mask) and an Iraqi kid who may be in an upcoming roSeahawk draft."

If that is a 'kid', then I'm still a friggin infant.

Andrew

duffman said "With all doe respect ma'am you need to do as merci offen suggests STFU...(and quit crying over spilt milk. .. ;)"

You're nothing but class. Did I read correctly; dead soldier son is spilt milk?

"I doubt her son (as a free-thinking volunteer) would agree with her ridiculous tactics."

1) he's dead, who knows 2) it wouldn't matter anyway 3) maybe he signed up for the college funds.

JDB

Isn't it amazing how after the immigration debate that suddenly the right sees Bush like everyone else? In the last month, I've seen them accuse Bush of putting out a terrorist scare to distract from immigration, ignoring the facts, ignoring the will of the people, being surround by yes men, and of foolishly continuing a policy long after it was proven wrong. Sheesh, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and most everyone else on the right now sound like they should be posting on Kos.

coiler

Careful, Duffy will accuse you of mentioning the "short bus" again..

Duffman

Sir Andrew: leave it to you to conclude I was referring to her son. Let me say I'm sorry for her loss and I feel her pain (having lost someone dear recently also) - no I was of course referring to the committment that has been made by our elected officials for our military in Iraq.
And, just for the record - I don't believe her son was a soldier? I think he was a Marine. ...and as a Marine would proudly tell you..I'm no soldier :)

Andrew

I purposely confuse soldiers and marines to make the point that their lives are eqauly indispensable in my eyes.

Duffman

Yeah sure!
..and it's spelled 'equally'
Have another Fresca...and chill :)

Andrew

Pointing out spelling mistakes is the last refuge of a scoundrel. I litter my posts with them to sniff you types out.

Duffman

..and recoil: I'm sorry you have a short bus; there are things that can be done about that condition but probably not for discussion on this topic :)
Excuse the expression: ..hang in there..or try your best

Duffman

Pointing out spelling mistakes is the last refuge of a scoundrel. I litter my posts with them to sniff you types out.

LOL! Oh, Okay..yeah I should have known that.

cowpotpi3

I find that those so opposed to Sheehan do so quite inanely. They can't attack her message so they attack her methods. It is telling of the moral character of said individuals who question her patriotism and spout BS like Duff did, that "she is no service to her country."

Quite the contrary, my friend. She spoke out and she used her inalienable right to speak the truth and express her opinions regardless of what you and others said about her. No more and no less.

Telling one to shut up in life and death debates of war and peace is the personification of anti-Americanism. Just thought you might be a better man than that.

coiler

Duffy, it has been proven what a troll you are, by the fake outrage and the so-called Hillary support. Stop it, ok?

Duffman

That 'analysis' is not even worthy of a retort!

Duffman

Oh, Okay 'shorty'!

KS

"The Truthy" might be a better fit for the station with such known liars such as Big Pants, Michael Savage and Billo Reilly."

Even though it is not carried on 770AM, don't forget Blatherwatch in that group.

chucks

Fremont
Is what Andrew says about spelling true? Are you a scoundrel that is sniff out-able?
Thought never crossed my mind. Just want you to opine. For the record:
Casey Sheehan was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery Regiment, 1st cavalry Div, US Army, Ft Hood, Texas.
In 2000, Sheehan enlisted in the US Army. Near the end of his tour of duty, the US invasion of Iraq began. Sheehan reenlisted, knowing that his unit would be sent to Iraq. His unit arrived in Sadr City on March 19, 2004.
Sheehan was a devout Catholic and had acted as an alter server during Mass on the morning of his death.
Casey and seven other soldiers were killed on Palm Sunday, April 4, 2004. They were killed by Muqtada al'Sadr's militia, known as the Mahdi Army in an ambush.
Just thought the truth should be known.
Cindy Sheehan's choice of how to show her grief is annoying to many of us, however, it is her grief and her choice. I feel for her and her family for the loss of a son that most of us would have been proud to have known, given the opportunity.

mercifurious

Coiler gets it:
Duffy, it has been proven what a troll you are, by the fake outrage and the so-called Hillary support. Stop it, ok?

And all Cthulhu's desciples say: "Amen"

Duffman, two questions:

A.) How do you explain the dichotomy of your numerous right wing-nut views - most completely unsourced and unsubstantiated, with your support for Hillary?
(Note: For the benefit of all Bla'M Famers, I'll be sure to remind you of them all if you'd like)

B.) Whom did you vote for in 2004 & 2000? I'll proudly say that I voted for Gore & Kerry - your turn

Blathering michael

Cindy Sheehan was a useful idiot--but she put the war as an issue on the table for the American people. When Bush wouldn't go out and talk to her it was one of the worst political blunders of his blunder-ridden career. When Katrina came along a couple months later, he found himself in a pickle he'd never get out of. thank you Cindy!

Andrew

Conservatives and Libertarians believe public services should be privatized, but what then is their solution for caring for crippled people who are unable to earn money and pay for any such service?

Furthermore, if a crippled child is the sole responsibilty of the parents and not society then wouldn't outlawing abortion unfairly impose on the freedom of the parents by obligating them to financialy support child that only exists at the insistance of the law and pro-lifers who make those laws? Should pro-lifers have to pay for the crippled kids they insist are carried to term only to suffer a lifetime?

Mungo

Great radio on KIRO just now...Dori had on the UW scientist who is studying Mt Kilamonjaro glaciers....Dori threw all the anti-GW memes at him and the guy shot them down one by one. Being the true Neandrethal he is, Dori reiterated that GW is a hoax - after the guy left. Of course he offered nada to back his claim.

Andrew

That was funny! Monson must have thought the guest would be an global warming oponent when he booked him because he disputed some melting glaciar as evidence, but it actualy turned out that the oposite was true, and this viewpoint was a feature of the scientist's nuance and precision.

So hilariously Some Jackass Named Dori Monson was put in the position of having to tell a well spoken SCIENTIST that he disagrees with his views on global warming. The scientist was plain spoken and sounded like he knew his shit, and the best Monson could retort was some silly blather about having reservations about 'man's involvement'.

From this, it couldn't possibly be made more clear that his opinion on global warming, along with all of his opinions, are based on convenience and not one iota of research. He didn't even research his guest. My guess would be that he hates reading. He often critiques TV shows. I've never heard him critique a book.

cowpotpi3

Monson was on a rampage of buffoonery today on this topic and his inane assertion that the smoking ban had not hurt businesses because overall business has grown since the law went into effect. What a simpleton.

Duffman

merci: you're predictable and boring and I'll end it this way. Not that I need divulge ANYthing to you but I voted Repug once in my life; for Nixon and that was it...all other's were Dems. I plan on voting for Mrs Clinton (or Obama or Gore -even tho I don't care for him). That's the way it is. You can believe it, dis-believe it or STFU (in your parlance).
You, sir are a 'non-event'.

Duffman

Don't you all get it: Dori Monson is an 'entertainer'; his goal is to create controversy and generate rabid response (one-way-or-the-other). I must say he is VERY successful in that regard.
Do you actuall think he believes and supports all the things he says? Get a clue...he is an actor!!!

Duffman

"Cindy Sheehan was a useful idiot--"

I agree somewhat Bla'm; however the damage she did to the Dems may yet to be realized. I hope I am wrong obviously but as Fremont states sometimes 'fat lady probably has not sung yet' on this particular situation.
Did our 'beloved' President make a mistake in not meeting with her: WITHOUT A DOUBT!

spark

Sorry Duffman..some people on this blog may have trouble reading but I dont..you were too referring to her son, not "commitment by elected officials." At least have the courage of your convictions.If you dont like Cindy, then stick with that..dont try to weasel out by saying you were talking about something else.

cowpotpi3

Damage to the Dems? I really think that one is a stretch. She hasn't really been 'newsworthy' for a long time. I don't see how her now defunct protest portends some kind of issue for Democrats. If anything her protest helped Democrats in that it was another voice in the chorus of questioning the Iraq War. The pathetic right wing attacks on her personally showed their motivations are base and disgusting. I think a lot of people were turned off by the attacks she suffered even if she did overstay her welcome by quite a bit.

sparky

Speaking of Daily Kos..did anyone else see the picture of GWB in shorts with the anklets with the Presidential Seal on them, and also wearing "crocks*" on his feet.
Looked like a tourist from Hoboken.

*crocks are rubber clogs with swiss cheese holes in them...

Duffman

Spark...after having served this Country for three (3) years and losing many friends...if you actually think I would be making reference to 'her son' I feel for you. I think you know better but you like to jump on the Duffman when you see your fellow comrades do it. So, why don't you be big enough to admit that. I enjoy your posts and I think you're wise but I was hoping you'd be more of an 'independent thinker'.

Duffman

"Damage to the Dems? I really think that one is a stretch.."

I hope so CPP3, I really do...but you know I'm almost seeing those ads now?...with all the footage that the 'Rove-like' wannabees probably shot.

cowpotpi3

None of those candidates have anything to do with Sheehan...I think you've seen too many Swift Boat ads.

Duffman

No CPP3..I've seen the power of 'Rove' and friends; they will stop at nothing for 'power'!

Duffman

:)..this blog has suddenly come 'alive' again, don't you think. Aaaah, nothing like stirring up the pot, eh.

mercifurious

Yes Sparky, we all need to read for Duffman every now and then. But I think with this comment, Duffy has finally lowered himself below pond scum* :

Let's roll the transcript:

"With all doe respect ma'am you need to do as merci offen suggests STFU...(and quit crying over spilt milk. .. ;)"

I would never say something like that to someone who has suffered so much.

Next to her son, Cindy has sacrificed more than anyone here for this country, and you just compared her loss to "spilt milk"?

IMHO: Fuck you.
(Note: Not one expletive I've ever used here could be lower than what Duff just said)

* Correction: Pond scum is giving Duff much credit. Let's go with "ratfucking piece of filth".

Duffman

..like I said merci, you're a non-event and it really bothers you doesn't it...you so seek recognition as an astute contributor...well, forget it pal we've got you pegged!

mercifurious

Bla'M Fam:
Save that Duffman post.
http://blatherwatch.blogs.com/talk_radio/2007/06/oddems_the_osci.html#comment-72596754

As soon as he starts to play his nicey-nice polite routine (and he will) - show him back to his "hate-filled bile" reading room.

mercifurious

Yes or No, Scumfuck:

Did you or did you not just compare Cindy Sheehan's loss to "spilt milk"

Duffman

...you do love the cut-and-paste and link routine don't you...life is so exciting. 'NON-EVENT' you will eternally live with that tag; it's indelibly imprinted herein...ha ha Duffman has prevailed yet again...so continue on your 'merciful..life' LOL !!!

Duffman

...and quit using bad words; that just cements your inadequacies...hahaha

mercifurious

like I said merci, you're a non-event and it really bothers you doesn't it...

No, this is what bothers me:

A.) How this pseudo-polite no-bad-words "nice guy" like you could turn around & say something so wretched about someone who has suffered a loss astronomically larger than anyone here.

B.) How said faker will turn-around tomorrow and pretend he never did something so wretched.
Hell, you already tried to back-away from your filth:
"Sir Andrew: leave it to you to conclude I was referring to her son."

Don't even try it. Your secret is out now Duff. Just stand by your scumfuck status and own it. You know, like a REAL marine

mercifurious

Again, already starting with the psuedo-polite "naughty words" routine.

Eat this:

Duffman

...was never a Marine; you GOT IT WRONG yet again!
Listen carefully: I was a GRUNT...a GRUNT is a SOLDIER of the US Army. Gee can you grasp that after all the training I have tried to administer???
A MARINE would be insulted to be misinterpreted with a SOLDIER and vice-versa. OMG this is so hard to explain to someone who just accepts protection but never volunteers to protect!!!
Keep trying tho NON-EVENT one of these days just MAY BE you'll grasp some of this.

mercifurious

Okay Duffman, for your newly sensative eyes and mind:

Yes or No, did you write the following:
"With all doe respect ma'am you need to do as merci offen suggests STFU...(and quit crying over spilt milk. .. ;)"

Duffman

Is there a contest somewhere for cut&paste & link artists...like American Idol...may be American Idiot...yeah that's it...merci for A.I. - wouldn't America love to see a competition of CP&L artists...GOoooooooo merci!!!

mercifurious

"was never a Marine; you GOT IT WRONG yet again!
Listen carefully: I was a GRUNT...a GRUNT is a SOLDIER of the US Army."

oooooooooh NO! Yikes Duffy, I'm terribly sorry that I gave you TOO MUCH credit.

Now answer the question, GRUNT

Note to Bla'M fam: Duffy is getting frantic (again). Stuck in BS of his own making (again).

Thus all the frantic subject changing, and inability do deal with his own hate-filled bile:

"With all doe respect ma'am you need to do as merci offen suggests STFU...(and quit crying over spilt milk. .. ;)"

mercifurious

Stuck in one's own BS, frantic subject change, Smoke n' Mirrors

exhibit A: complain when someone gives you too much credit

exhibit B: pretend it's one-big cut-n-paste contest.

Now cut-through the exhibits, and you have Duffman's real Christ-filled character:

"With all doe respect ma'am you need to do as merci offen suggests STFU...(and quit crying over spilt milk. .. ;)"


Duffman

..adrenalin flowing there merc? ha ha!
Answer: CAN'T YOU READ?????
"Sir Andrew: leave it to you to conclude I was referring to her son. Let me say I'm sorry for her loss and I feel her pain (having lost someone dear recently also) - no I was of course referring to the committment that has been made by our elected officials for our military in Iraq."

Duffman

it's always 'note to Blam'Fam' as if insecure 'bout whether or not any one's paying attention...you are one sorry NON-EVENT my man...but fun to have around :)
..now go back to CP&L practice !!
