Maybe like you, JayBird, and several other posters here, I am past getting embarrassed.

Hmmm. Good or bad?

That "Hillsboro free-lunch counter" is costing everyone plenty, JayBird. Not just you and your NoDakian friends.

Now I know JayBird isn't from the Great Plains state of North Dakota.

"NoDakians" indeed...

JByrd, you can get rid of a lot of those pent-up frustrations when we get together to pea-shoot that Booosh photo.....and only then we can work on more important things to move our Democrat Party forword....

See you at the Hillsboro free-lunch counter....

Poor JayBird is the one who can't keep characters or script excerpts straight.

If he only had a brain - Scarecrow

If he only had a heart - Tin Man

If he only had the "noive" - C. Lion

Here's the trip down memory lane for everyone, because JB doesn't remember...

When the Cowardly Lion first meets up with Dorothy, Scarecrow & Tin Man in the forest--the three had just been chanting "lions & tigers & bears, oh my"--he jokes around with the Tin Man by asking him "how long do you stay fresh in that can?"

Wow. If (somebody) only had a brain, indeed.

"Hey loco, the day you actually post your very own opinion on a topic will be the first day we will all see that you have your own brain."

Well, all right. I was lifting from the Cowardly Lion on MGM's Wizard of Oz. Are you happy now?

At least I'll let myself be cornered into giving credit where it's due. Where do you come up with your routine, dull though it may be?

Don't "feel" bad, lor....it wasn't long ago they said I was locomotive....and Hal....my fellow Democrat Party persons "feel" others are as deceptive as those of our party....we use deception in order to move the country forword. Even tho I have never been anyone but Jack here....

I have not seen more "moving forword" than of the last few days....and we must....for the children. And to give Votes For Gifts.

"That we can all agree on."

Then why are you copying Jack, JayBird?

Schtick envy?

H4C, I feel you've got that right.

Alas, I keep waiting for a better routine from JayBird, as he surely has motivation in what he calls "schtick" from Jack.

Not yet...

I hate to say it JByrd, but our Democrat Party commenters are the ones that show tendencies of racism....I don't know how many times I saw a fellow liberal call a conservative Black a Uncle Tom. But then, JByrd, maybe that is one trait of our side I must strive for.....but probably not. Maybe I'll never become full fledged Democrat Party if that's the requirement.

But I MUST learn to call our Republican opponents racists....even though I don't see any. The means justifying the end....I feel I must work on that....

Where that the case then none of Benjamin Franklin’s many letters to the editor, nor Poor Richards Almanac, nor the Federalist Papers, nor John Adams letters to the editor been printed.

Silence Dogood, Harry Meanwell, Alice Addertongue, Caelia Shortface, Martha Careful, Busy Body, Anthony Afterwit, Polly Baker, Benevolus, Richard Saunders, and Timothy Turnstone; aka Benjamin Franklin.

Publius; aka Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay.

Populus, An American, A Son of Liberty, and Vindex the Avenger; aka John Adams.

Many other founding fathers used pseudonyms when writing letters to the editor or opinion pieces.

History shows us the use of pseudonyms for opinion pieces and letters to the editor has been common practice in this country, long before the Revolutionary War.

Lor, you have GOT to be wrong, my friend JByrd says he's from out of state, paying for us to get our gift of $1.68....but if he's not being truthful, it's all in the "means justifies the end", which I feel I must fully support Wade1 on. He's only trying to help me move our Democrat Party forword.

JByrd, I feel we can all come together to agree the reason the MDN banned you(Wade1) was for vulgar language......but I will support you in doing that because I believe the end justifies the means, especially to move the Democrat Party, our Party, forword. So I hope the MDN can change their thinking so that you CAN move us forward in our Democrat Party, using whatever means you deem necessary....and I'm sure Nancy can come together with all of us on that thinking.

lorexxx Real names work on Google+, though there are some that use pseudonyms, they are the ones that spout off, offend, attack and generally behave badly. You know how it is, we'll do what we think we can get away with. I'll behave myself, I don't know about you all. Just for being a member of the 'democrat party' I could say the sky is blue and get nine votes that disagree. To be honest sometimes the sky isn't blue, like during Republicon administrations. :-)
