  1. Congratulations?

  2. Now that I realize what you were doing, it’s in pretty poor taste, but is telling, none-the-less.

  3. It took 12 minutes for to you understand that simple photo?

  4. Get your kicks where you can, I guess.

    Comment by Cinesnatch — May 9, 2012 @ 4:56 pm - May 9, 2012

  5. “Get your kicks where you can.”

    Spoken like a true moral relativist.

    I expected no less.

  6. Eric,

    It’s Bruce who was getting his kicks.

    Follow along.

  7. Bruce – are you sure he wouldn’t look like one of these guys?

  8. Heh.. probably so. It was a quick photoshop job! 🙂

  9. It’s Bruce who was getting his kicks.

    Yet it was you who took offense.

    “Follow along,” you say?

    Try keeping up with your own outrages, victim.

    Comment by My Sharia Moor — May 9, 2012 @ 6:05 pm - May 9, 2012

  10. Again, the “kicks” I was referring to was his laughing and superiority complex for the “12 minute” comment, Eric.

    And, “outrage” is a rather extreme description to be used by someone who:

    1) Exposes a person’s private details, because he disagrees with them politically


    2) Someone who joins the Newt Gingrich campaign to unseat Obama because “this is a war.”

    Outrage? LOL. That’s an emotionally-charged term that you’re more familiar with than I. I simply observed the lack of taste in Bruce’s choices. Something else you’re well-versed in.

  11. Can someone explain this to me, please?

    Comment by Rattlesnake — May 9, 2012 @ 6:43 pm - May 9, 2012

  12. just google Liberace. Michael Douglas and Matt Damon are starring in the upcoming movie. hope that helps RS

    Comment by rusty — May 9, 2012 @ 6:52 pm - May 9, 2012

  13. I would have been proud to have had Liberace as a son. He was a great performer

    Comment by JJ — May 9, 2012 @ 7:22 pm - May 9, 2012

  14. Rattlesnake, the picture is Liberace, who denied he was gay when he was live, but died of AIDS; he lived a double life, although he never dated women. Liberace is the opposite of Obama: truly charismatic & could wrap his audience around his finger.

    Comment by Sebastian Shaw — May 9, 2012 @ 7:38 pm - May 9, 2012

  15. Ok… thanks. But I still don’t understand (although I didn’t know that is a picture of Liberace). What is Bruce “doing,” that is in “poor taste” and is “telling”? Obviously this is a reference to Obama’s comments about Trayvon Martin, but I don’t understand what that has to do with Liberace.

    Comment by Rattlesnake — May 9, 2012 @ 8:12 pm - May 9, 2012

  16. Bruce is making light of the fact that Obama said that if he had a son he would probably look like Trayvon Martin.

    Regardless of Obama’s motivations, to make light of the fact of Obama’s comments is to hold Trayvon Martin’s life in complete contempt. Who f*cking cares what Obama said. This TEENAGER is no longer living, because of some f!cked-up Florida gun law.

    Yes, I believe Martin started kicking the shit out of that rent-a-cop. And, yes, I believe he was “standing his ground” before that lousy excuse of a human being was.

    And, to attempt to make humor out of a situation where one B-O-Y no longer has his LIFE is in poor taste. To make light of the fact that two parents no longer have a son, who was armed with nothing more than a Snapple bottle, a pack of Skittles and his two fists, who was sick and f*cking tired of looking over his shoulder, is beyond contempt.

    Just my opinion. Feel free to disagree.

    I really don’t care. The “author” of this post seems to lack public humility. Something I’m not accustomed to. And I don’t care if I sound “holier than though,” because I’m one of those people who is perfectly willing to admit when he is wrong and/or made mistake, which is not something that is common on this message board, or most for that matter.

    So, Rattlesnake, if you think it’s in perfectly fine taste, so be it.

    And, that Bruce whittles done the epitome of “gay” to Liberace … well, that’s on Bruce.

    In the words of Bruce, “Bwahahahahaha” … or something like that.

  17. So Cinesnatch, you taught Trayvon Martin to be violent and disrespectful and to beat up others, then made excuses for him when he did it.

    Then you blame the person he attacked for defending themselves.

    Then you and yours outright manipulate the police audio to slander him, put out bounties on his head, call for white people to be killed, and tweet the wrong address out in an attempt to harm his family.

    All because your Obama is losing and racist fools like yourself need a scapegoat.

    Meanwhile, children are being shot left and right in Chicago by more of Obama’s “sons” wielding illegal firearms in complete violation of the law, and you don’t lift a finger.

    But as we know, you think they should have been aborted anyway.

  18. ND30,

    I’ve already told you …

    Whatever you say …

    it all comes out …

    blah, blah, blah …

    until you comment here. And, you know EXACTLY why.

    My comments haven’t been erased. Surely, your’s won’t either.

    Have a nice day.

    Comment by Cinesnatch — May 10, 2012 @ 1:39 am - May 10, 2012

  19. Yup.

    Neither has your one here blathering and praising Evan Hurst as always being eloquent and wonderful.

    You remember — the guy who wrote and endorsed as true the post you just quoted?

    As expected, Snatchy, you were lying.

    Comment by North Dallas Thirty — May 10, 2012 @ 1:59 am - May 10, 2012

  20. Always holding me accountable for other’s words?

    Shall I hold you accountable for what laws your mother passes?

    Comment by Cinesnatch — May 10, 2012 @ 2:02 am - May 10, 2012

  21. Ah, Cinesnatch, you’ve now reached the level of, rightly or wrongly, threatening other peoples’ families — and even more entertainingly, in a fashion that constitutes attempted blackmail of an elected official.

    This should nicely demonstrate your true nature to those who were inclined to give you the benefit of the doubt.

    Comment by North Dallas Thirty — May 10, 2012 @ 2:39 am - May 10, 2012

  22. LOL. If anyone but you can find a threat in my last post, I’m a monkey’s uncle. It’s tit for tat, ND30. The old if/then argument.

    If you hold me accountable for X-person,

    Then I hold you accountable.


    Look it up.

    Otherwise, hold me accountable for MY words and I shall return the favor (well, I’ve been doing that this whole time, but whatever).

    If you’re interested in evolving, look me up at my blog. I’m out.

    Comment by Cinesnatch — May 10, 2012 @ 2:45 am - May 10, 2012

  23. It’s tit for tat, ND30. The old if/then argument.

    Ah. So you acknowledge your goal is to get a “tit for tat” alteration of the behavior of an elected official.

    Blackmail. And threats.

    Comment by North Dallas Thirty — May 10, 2012 @ 3:10 am - May 10, 2012

  24. Thanks, Cinesnatch.

    I disagree that this is making light of the death of Trayvon Martin. It is making light of Obama’s comments on the death of Trayvon Martin, which should be made fun of because they were inappropriate.

    Comment by Rattlesnake — May 10, 2012 @ 9:33 am - May 10, 2012

  25. Cinesnatch: You’re in the wrong here, plain and simple, for trying to make somebody’s alleged family situation (real or imagined – you don’t know what you think you know) “the subject”.

    It is a douchebag thing to do.

    I didn’t like it when Eric thought he was going to toy with left-wing commentors in that way, and I spoke up. You’re now putting yourself in his company.

    Comment by ILoveCapitalism — May 11, 2012 @ 1:32 pm - May 11, 2012

  26. (i.e. when Eric thought he was going to toy with left-wing commentors by revealing whatever he thought he knew about them)

    Comment by ILoveCapitalism — May 11, 2012 @ 1:34 pm - May 11, 2012

  27. P.S. I have to make the following qualifier. If NDT himself talked about his family situation on this blog, that’s different. There is a lot I don’t read. And it’s fair for people to repeat back to commentor X information that commentor X has volunteered. I have made the assumption here that NDT didn’t.
