It’s come to this:



Weasel Zippers has more pics.

Imagine the outrageous outrage if an MLK statue was covered up during a Washington’s Birthday rally.

I’m kind of posting on the fly today but plan to be more settled down later!

    You can`t expect the NAA"L"CP to allow a depiction of an "Old,dead, slave owner" to disrupt their ongoing con game, can you ? The surprise to me is the white-haired white guy speaking !

    "Posting on the fly" – is that code again for "Adult beverage enjoyment establishment"?

    "Posting on the fly"

    As long as you don't pull a Favre and post FROM the fly (or at least have the decency to not wear your crocs whilst doing so)

    If people are so offended by a statue of George Washington, perhaps they should opt to live in a country that wasn't founded by him!

    Along with Doug – I'll drink to that!!!

  5. Nanny on January 18th, 2011 9:29 pm

    Doug – just want you to know, and I think I speak for all posters here (with the exception of Nick) we really appreciate this site and the fact that your talented blogging has also taken you to Michelle Malkin's site for even more exposure. I think it is great and I for one enjoy the friendship of you and all the friends here who share like minded conservative thoughts and values. We do understand when you may have to post on the fly – whether it is from your office or your favorite watering hole. Thanks for all you do! That doesn't sound to sucky up does it?

    My thoughts exactly. Or at the very least, another 'less offensive' location? Shameful. Thankfully the WZ crowd isn't fooled for a minute! They rightly note that org. hasn't given a rosy rip about MLK for a loooong, long time.

    Well SC voters? As MM notes.., "can't wait to vote more of them OUT in 2012". Obviously someone of authority signed off on this. Get his/her name, number, email and racquetball club address and HOUND them into leaving the country.

    And this while a nice lady named Gabby is fighting for her LIFE! Not exactly 'inspiring' is it? As w/ my "E'f Recycling Campaign!" don't look for me to get any more enthused about MLK Day than the Left gets about Memorial Day… or Veterans Day… or any OTHER long-held American traditions they routinely sweep under the carpet? From now on any day the Left holds 'dear' is [sadly] referred to as "Another Three-Day Weekend". Sorry guys, you brought it on yourselves.

  7. Marshall_Will on January 18th, 2011 9:42 pm

    As in: "Hey Marshall.., what did 'you' do in observance of Earth/____ Day? Attend church, go to a rally? Oh, dude, I really couldn't tell you! I was so hungover I pretty much SLEPT right -thru- it!"

    ( Works both ways guys, start liking it )

  8. Doug on January 18th, 2011 9:51 pm

    Thanks Nanny! Hopefully bigger and better things are in store for this site as well. Working on some stuff, and we'll see.

    Sometimes because of the dual role I don't get to post here as much as I'd like but I'm glad people are coming back here every day to keep the discussion lively. I did this for a few years pretty much for my own entertainment and it's cool that it's catching on (five years ago if I got one comment every couple of days that meant I was having a big week).

    But I had so much more fun blogging that I ditched the weekly column to focus more on the blog, and it went from there.

    Good day all!

  9. Doug on January 18th, 2011 9:52 pm

    is that code again for "Adult beverage enjoyment establishment"?

    I knew that would come back to bite me.

  10. OK_Loyalist on January 18th, 2011 10:13 pm

    Short, sweet and to the point, my kind of thoughts as well !

  11. Marshall_Will on January 18th, 2011 10:17 pm


    Not at all! ( Not as long as it ends w/ "E'f Recycling!" ) Lol

    For those that may have missed.., my new 'policy' is, unless and UNTIL I get Concessions of Value from the Left.., I ain't doin' Jack. No ribbons, no reverence, no nothing.

    When they start getting onboard w/ 'some' measure of respect for conservative values and traditions, then may…be I'll sort my paper, plastic and spent uranium? Say for instance, they wake up tomorrow, realize what a FOLLY Doh'care was.., I'll stop throwing empty tallboys out my car window on… Tuesdays & Thursdays?

    It's the New Civility!

  12. OK_Loyalist on January 18th, 2011 10:22 pm

    Naw, you said it well. In the future if you're not sure if you "sound to sucky up" let me share a joke that you can use as a scale when unsure. Do you know the difference between 'Brown Nosing' and 'Kissing Ass' ? Depth Perception. :D

    I think 2011 will be a big year for Doug .

  14. SignPainterGuy on January 18th, 2011 11:29 pm

    Nanny, according to my dictionary, "sucky up"(ing) is generally appropriate and universally appreciated !

    M_W, you are back with a vengeance ! Yes, I`m waiting for the left to do what they demand we do, and do it for long enough that it can be seen as a trend – then I`ll begin to think of them as maybe not JUST a bad, dirty joke !

    OK, "Depth Perception", LOL, STOP RIGHT THERE !!

  15. SignPainterGuy on January 18th, 2011 11:33 pm

    Maybe they can all help Alec Baldwin pack up and all head out together ! America would be so much the better for it !

    A 94 year old goes into the pharmacy to get his prescription of Viagra filled. He told the pharmacist that he wanted the tablets quartered. The pharmacist explained that a 1/4 tablet wouldn't be enough to achieve an erection. The old man said "That's fine, I just want to quit peeing in my slippers"

  18. Jimbo on January 19th, 2011 1:03 am

    Why Washington in a box? Why don't we ask the new head of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus? He worked for NAACP and I'm sure he knows the box protocols.

    Aren't we lucky to be rid of Michael Steele?
    Sooooooo lucky.

    Had you heard about warm milk and Viagra as a sleep aid ? Yep, the warm milk will put you to sleep, the Viagra will keep you from rolling out of bed !

    Hey, OK started it !

  20. OK_Loyalist on January 19th, 2011 2:37 am

    I got nailed by the language bot for the 'erect' word, Doug had to bail that post out. LOL

  21. SignPainterGuy on January 19th, 2011 2:58 am

    I held off for over an hour before posting mine, decided we`re all adults and it was fairly tame ! One of my favorites !

  22. Doug on January 19th, 2011 11:10 am

    I tried turning off the language bot once and got flooded with porn spam within minutes!

  23. OK_Loyalist on January 19th, 2011 1:48 pm

    LOL, no problem, I just found it amusing.

  24. SignPainterGuy on January 19th, 2011 2:25 pm

    If instead of the "V" word I use "male potency enhancement medication", will that slide on thru ?!

  25. SignPainterGuy on January 19th, 2011 2:30 pm

    Doug, I got your (vanished reply) by "reply e-mail" – "Posting on the fly" – Just wanted you to know I "try" to pay attention ! ;-)

    The white honky European male slave owner had it coming. (just kidding)
