21) Message boards : Politics : To Toronto Mayer Rob Ford (Message 1443213)
Posted 250 days ago by Profile Robert Waite
Ford continues to refuse to resign.
My opinion is that he has an over inflated sense of self worth. Growing up in a very wealthy family, the family business brings in over $100 million a year, he feels he deserves special treatment because of his special skills.
He truly believes that even in his booze and crack riddled state of mind, he's the only person capable of filling the position.
I can't wait to read the details of the accusation that he's spent time with some hooker too.

Tune in next week when Ford, the Peter Griffin of Canada, engages in a fight to the death with a chicken.

Why do rightists and teabaggers always compare capitalism to various forms of governance?
Capitalism is an economic system, the others are political systems.
Apples to oranges Guy.

Capitalism would function under a communist government very easily.
Shareholders could own up to 49% of whatever industry they care to invest in and enjoy their profit for not really working. Just like now.
The state would retain control by owning 51%, thus allowing the profits to assist in maintaining services and government programs.
State ownership and capitalism are not exclusive of each other.

Also, we have people who create threads for their vitriolic rants and raves, then proceed to be the only one posting in the thread. If a thread originator is the only posting in that thread for, say, 10 posts in a row, perhaps the thread should be auto-locked. Why should the S@H message boards be turned into niches for blogs?


I'm not going looking for it, but there's a thread about feeding cats that has many posts by one member and they are only because he's keeping the thread going.

Maybe the best option is to leave things the way they are and allow the mods to stomp on those who need stomping on.

When I joined the project, I had no idea that the forums existed.
I was just going to allow SETI to run on my machine.

If postings are causing you grief, avoid the forums and just leave BOINC running in the background.

Dear friends, I'm afraid that my tolerance for the intolerant is at its end. If you feel similarly, please join me in my campaign to eliminate death threats from our forum.

Thank you for taking a principled stand Angela.
High RAC numbers are not a get out of jail free card. The rules must apply to everyone, or the rules mean nothing.

I guess lonnnnnnnnng is a relative term. LOL

Make of it what you want.
I cannot stay here anymore.

You are happy now.

I am not.

No death threats.
Good bye.

I leave you with this.........


I look forward to a lonnnnnnnnng period of relative peace.
He's correct in saying "You are happy now." and I'm quite certain that his own unhappiness will soon be ended due to his overactive fantasy driven psyche.
I wonder what colour the sky is in his world.

It's not about political correctness.
For myself, I just can't take the bull, the hate and the false bravado you spout.
When you spend your weekends getting gooned on your rotgut whiskey and cluttering up the forums with so much drivel that even a buzzard would vomit, it becomes too much for me to take.

If I wanted to spend my time in a world of fantasy, I'd go get a real book, by a real author and read that.

Like I said before, reading your threads is like watching a slow motion train wreck sometimes.

Good! He's gone. Now we can talk about him. LOL

I got dragged out of my house and was taken to a hospital 20 miles away on a 48 hour commitment hold. I have hospital records to verify this.



Which I did, on stocking feet, and a cab ride for $200.00 back to my place.


I'm still trying to wrap my head around the 20 mile cab ride that cost $200.
That's the most believable part of that fever dream story, and even then it makes no sense.

Like any herd animal seeking out others of it's kind, the crazy also seek out others.
Sattler is advertising in forums for all of the bewildered and lost crazy people to contact him.
I hope he gets thousands of PMs and emails. Every lunatic in the world could end up seeking a personal audience with the galactic traveler.

I can see him now. Hiding in the basement while dozens of crazies wander in his yard, looking in windows and pounding on doors. "Show us the way!" "Take us with you!"
Oh yeah, when you send up the bat signal calling in the lunatic fringe, you really should ask yourself just what you are getting yourself into.

His 'two guns, one for each of you' shtick won't work on a zombie-like herd of mental cases as they force their way through the door. LOL

If & when the TRUE producers strike, you will be surprised who is doing the striking. Yes, indeed, many surprises will be in store.


If you are referring to the pampered wealthy elite corporatists as the "TRUE producers", I think you'll find they began their strike many years ago under the Reagan/Thatcher fiascoes.
With the onslaught of globalization, they've been able to strike at the heart of the working class by sending manufacturing overseas.

Of course, these rich pigs aren't really the "TRUE producers" of anything. They are actually leeches sucking at the blood and sweat of those who do produce.
The wealthy are not producers of anything but greed and poverty. They do nothing more than profit from those who do the production.

They need us more than we need them. Let's see Bill Gates or some Saudi oil baron actually build their own mansions, planes, cars or anything else you can think of.
Most of them don't know how to fix a damned toilet, so don't call them the "TRUE producers".

PS: In Rand's feverish attempts to show how the elites don't need ordinary people, did she ever explain how the soft handed non-labouring elites actually built their new community?

Here's her complete interview with Mike Wallace.
I just shake my head at the foolish woman thinking that the elites can get by without any help. Christ, most of them couldn't mow their own lawns.

I wonder what her maid and cook thought of this interview. LOL

I came across this link and thought some of you might be interested in a short biography done in graphic style.
