Adding to ToddJ’s comment. The lamestream this morning is all atwitter with the president’s latest tweets highlighting Rep Cummings as one of the almost countless Dems from what many have come to know as ‘the plantation’. These are the representatives who introduce and demogauge policies and laws that maintain the misery they have supported in minority communities since the Great Society days when the now successful assault on the black family began. Cummings has spread lies about President Trump for the last two years, and now remains as a leader of the Dems coalition seeking to impeach the president. When Trump strikes back, pointing out the existential misery that the congressman perpetuates in his district, the Left comes unglued, why? Well of course it’s racism because Cummings is black, and the plantation must be perpetuated for the safe votes they reliably deliver year after year.

Walt

Morning gents. First Cummings is all butt hurt, now it Queen Nan's turn. It's her shithole city Trump is now referencing.
Yes, Trump is an equal opportunity offender.

"The president also argued that San Francisco, represented by Pelosi, is “not even recognizable lately.” San Francisco has notably had a problem with people defecating on the streets, with OpenTheBooks.com recording 118,352 cases of human feces requiring city cleanup since 2011."

What heartens me is that Trump is the first president to call out the reps from broken down districts which have received uncountable aid dollars over the decades, and responded by continuing to go downhill as indicated by about every applicable social metric. The politicos these benighted citizens send to Congress should be held up to their constituencies as the failures they are, instead of continuing to give them a pass with a courteous sound of silence. Reps can’t effectively criticize each other’s districts for a number of reasons, but the president can and should. Now we finally have someone in the WH who is up to the task.

I have been in a Twitter strom on this with the plantation loving white liberals. They are truly unhinged. Of course they have no stats to defend since they are truly lazy ass researchers. I also tweeted the fool in the SacBee article on this who of course is AP. They cannot debate at all. All racist all the time. But they got away with this for many years as wimp ass R's let them spout with no retort. Now Trump is in charge and he does not bow to them. It is so refreshing to see pushback on the racists of the left.

George Rebane

ToddJ 842am - I would not characterize the plantation masters as 'unhinged'. I think they know exactly what they are doing (and have known it for years) to maintain their grip on power while they lead the nation toward socialism. Since they have no supportable basis for taking us down that path, they must maintain their constituencies ignorant and on destitution's doorstep so that their narrative against the 'racist rich' can carry the day and deliver the ever-hopeful votes to get the money from the rich to relieve their hopeless state. They never understand that their politicians actually want both to maintain and expand that level of destitution across the land so as to increase the national dissatisfaction (victimhood), which in its wholesale state is always the required political gateway to socialist autocracy. These people never understand that socialism is such a good idea that it must be introduced and enforced by the gun. Such Dems are evil.

George Rebane

AV 1254pm - Thank you for supporting your assertion. While I don't contend that what liberals call 'hate crimes' may have increased in Trump districts (from you that list is a doozey), I do withhold accepting the study results from progressive political scientists who call themselves "scientists" - there is no science in political science, a perfidious label if there ever was one.

If for you and yours the shithole appellation applies to any locale in which your views are not shared, then you can continue that labeling without end because the world is full of places that have very biased and one-sided views about others. And, of course, we on the other side are free to use that lightly-reasoned definition ourselves on some of your favorite places. No, I'm afraid you'll have to search for stauncher attributes of what is more broadly understood as deserving to be called a shithole country, state, city, county, neighborhood, ... . To keep things close at hand, Americans can easily understand that SF, Chicago, and Cummings' Baltimore district more than qualify for the label.

Well, it’s about time somebody shined the light on our national disgrace, aka, the hellhole inner cities that our fellow citizens and legal residents have to put up with. Go after them, Mr. Trump, and make them accountable for the squalor they created. The Dems own it and think their constituents are chumps.

We have been promising our black communities since...at least since civil rights icon Barbara Jordan’s Presidential Blue Ribbon Panel (Jordan Commission) under Reagan that we would protect our black youth and most vulnerable from competing with illegal aliens for jobs. We have been promising our inner city and urban residents their top priorities of school choice and safer neighborhoods for decades but have always been thwarted by the Liberal plantation owners of the Left. The top priorities of the Planation Masters are not what those who actually live in those districts want. You think Maxine Waters lives in her district?? Ha.

Make them defend their mess, Mr. Trump. Make them defend the Squad calling America a horrible place. We cannot make America Great Again without lifting all Americans out of Leftistina bondage.

Remember Trump’s Inauguration speech? He spoke of burned out factories dotting the landscape like tombstones. Oh, the Lefties called it a dark speech. Very dark. The popinjays repeated the mantra of “gloomy, a dark speech”. Hillary said it was a dark speech. Then you said, Mr. Trump, that the forgotten man will be forgotten no more. I am tired of all those memes that on the left side is a picture of bombed out Berlin after WW2 or Haiti and on the right side is a picture of Detroit or Newark or some other hellhole. Side by side comparisons. Yes, the did not build Rome in a day and you walk 20 miles into the woods, you walk 20 miles out.

Keep them on their back heels, Mr. Trump. Pound on them. They deserve to be taken to the woodshed for what they have done to our formerly vibrate great cities.

Reposted from Scattershots yesterday, if I may be so bold.

Dear Liberals,
Don’t dare pretend your ideology hasn’t been the driving force behind the destruction of OUR inner cities. I worked both the NY & Baltimore streets as a cop & a fed agent. You don’t know squat. The POTUS is right, it’s WAY PAST TIME for political accountability.
Watching liberal media elites, many of whom NEVER leave the Greenroom, pile on while avoiding the real questions about WHY our inner cities are struggling is equally pathetic. The media has become a cosmic embarrassment as they cover full time for liberalism’s grotesque failings.
And, under no circumstances, should Republicans back away from this fight. It’s LONG OVERDUE. The citizens of these struggling cities deserve better. They deserve a shot at safety and prosperity and the liberal politicians in charge HAVE ABSOLUTELY FAILED THEM.“ —Dan Borgino.

Baltimore....NYT Editorial....(good choice for Ambassador, Mr.Trump)

“But Baltimore’s dysfunction has been in the spotlight since the Black Lives Matter movement, when a CNN-encouraged riot against police caused law enforcement to pull back from policing in black neighborhoods.

“The same phenomenon occurred in other cities, especially where elected Democrats declined to support police and backed protests against them.

“Spikes in homicides in Baltimore, Chicago and the District of Columbia accounted for more than half of the national increase in killings in the 30 largest cities in 2015, according to a final analysis of yearly crime data by New York University School of Law’s Brennan Center for Justice,” the Baltimore Sun noted in April 2016.

The Times magazine article, “The Tragedy of Baltimore,” by Alex MacGillis, described “the crackup of an American city”:

“In 2017, [Baltimore] recorded 342 murders — its highest per-capita rate ever, more than double Chicago’s, far higher than any other city of 500,000 or more residents and, astonishingly, a larger absolute number of killings than in New York, a city 14 times as populous. Other elected officials, from the governor to the mayor to the state’s attorney, struggled to respond to the rise in disorder, leaving residents with the unsettling feeling that there was no one in charge. With every passing year, it was getting harder to see what gains, exactly, were delivered by the uprising.

“The violence and disorder have fed broader setbacks. Gov. Larry Hogan canceled a $2.9 billion rail transit line for West Baltimore, defending the disinvestment in the troubled neighborhood partly by noting that the state had spent $14 million responding to the riots. Target closed its store in West Baltimore, a blow to a part of town short of retail options. The civic compact has so frayed that one acquaintance admitted to me recently that he had stopped waiting at red lights when driving late at night. Why should he, he argued, when he saw young men on dirt bikes flying through intersections while police officers sat in cruisers doing nothing?

“MacGillis noted that it was difficult to talk about Baltimore’s problems partly because “the national political discourse lacks a vocabulary for the city’s ills.”

“But anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you're in a wealthy nation; you would think that you were in a Third World country. ... But today, what we're talking about is a community in which half of the people don't have jobs. We're talking about a community in which there are hundreds of buildings that are uninhabitable. We’re talking about a community where kids are unable to go to schools that are decent.“

Baltimore agrees -

The Baltimore Sun published an op-ed on Nov. 9, 2016 — the day Donald Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 presidential election — in which the author called for Baltimore to be declared a disaster, and rebuilt.

The op-ed, by Sean Kennedy, reads in part:
Donald J. Trump is known for his hyperbole, but not all of his ideas are a stretch. Our inner cities are a “disaster,” as he said in the final presidential debate — and they should be officially declared so.

Mr. Trump said on the campaign trail that he would “empower cities and states to seek a federal disaster designation for blighted communities in order to initiate the rebuilding of vital infrastructure, the demolition of abandoned properties and the increased presence of law enforcement.” Now that he’s captured the presidency, let’s hope he follows through.

The idea is radical, revolutionary and just what urban America needs: a federal disaster declaration for our most impoverished neighborhoods hard hit by crime, urban blight and economic malaise.

When the president declares an area to be a disaster, additional federal assistance can be applied while regulations and rules for rebuilding and revitalizing the affected area are often waived or reduced.

Declaring our most beleaguered neighborhoods to be “disaster zones” and encouraging entrepreneurial activities through access to capital and microloans would inject capital, expedite much needed infrastructure and give our inner cities hope again.

AV 305pm - Not at all; those are the words you are desperately trying to put in my mouth. But here you show yet one more dimension of your naivete by implying that the application of 'statistics' yields but one narrow path to truth. Where did you learn this? In unionized public school math classes taught by pressed-into-service history majors?

The application of statistics to data is an art form for those of us versed in the field. A recent and ongoing application of such art is purveyed by the 'climate scientists' who have mangled temperature data beyond all recognition, and then produced 'earth temperature estimates' that fit their narrative. Others versed in the field have for years pointed out their follies. I know not only how such statistics are done, but also how to do it. Can you?

Will anyone read the correction tucked at the end of an old article or will those who picked it up give the correction the same level of coverage as the lie
? I think not ----------

"If true, the assessment would undercut the basis for ongoing nuclear talks between Washington and Pyongyang. Trump has said he believes Kim has adhered to an agreement to curtail the development of nuclear weapons, but Trump’s critics have accused him of being naive in trusting the North Korean dictator.

The Journal story would seemingly support the latter interpretation, that Trump has misplaced confidence in Kim. Numerous news outlets picked up The Journal’s report.

But the reporting about DIA’s assessment is inaccurate, the newspaper now says. The article has been edited to remove the DIA reference, and a correction has been attached at the bottom of the piece.

“A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that analysts at the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency said North Korea could have produced 12 nuclear weapons since the Trump-Kim handshake in Singapore in June 2018. (July 27, 2019)”

The corrected story now relies on analysis from non-governmental analysts who track the development of weapons of mass destruction. The analysts told The Journal that North Korea has continued developing long-rang missile capabilities and fissile materials that could be used for nuclear weapons.

What do you expect from a Castro? --------------

"Julian Castro Is ‘Hypercritical’ Of Trump Immigration Policies He Once Praised Under Obama
Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro, a fervent opponent of the Trump administration’s immigration agenda, was called out for his past praise of former President Barack Obama’s immigration enforcement policies.

“I want to ask you about immigration which you have made a part of your campaign focus,” said “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan Sunday. “When you were mayor of San Antonio, you testified before Congress and you called for increased border security measures and you praised the Obama administration’s actions.”

Brennan then played a clip of Castro speaking before a congressional hearing in February 2013. In the clip, then-San Antonio Mayor Castro is seen lauding the Obama administration’s success at removing “dangerous individuals” after beefing up security along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“In Texas, we know firsthand that this administration has put more boots on the ground along the border than at any other time in our history which has led to unprecedented success in removing dangerous individuals with criminal records,” he said during a 2013 House Judiciary committee hearing.

“Why did you praise that policy then but when the Trump administration adopt similar language and policies you’re hypercritical of them?” Brennan asked.

Don Bessee

Hi Crabman, not to put too fine a point on it but Mississippi has been a shithole for 150 years with a brief good time during the 2nd world war. --------

"Mississippi's rank as one of the poorest states is related to its dependence on cotton agriculture before and after the Civil War, late development of its frontier bottomlands in the Mississippi Delta, repeated natural disasters of flooding in the late 19th and early 20th century that required massive capital investment in levees, and ditching and draining the bottomlands, and slow development of railroads to link bottomland towns and river cities.[122] In addition, when Democrats regained control of the state legislature, they passed the 1890 constitution that discouraged corporate industrial development in favor of rural agriculture, a legacy that would slow the state's progress for years.

After the Civil War, the state refused for years to build human capital by fully educating all its citizens. In addition, the reliance on agriculture grew increasingly costly as the state suffered loss of cotton crops due to the devastation of the boll weevil in the early 20th century, devastating floods in 1912–1913 and 1927, collapse of cotton prices after 1920, and drought in 1930

On August 30, 2007, a report by the United States Census Bureau indicated that Mississippi was the poorest state in the country. Major cotton farmers in the Delta have large, mechanized plantations, and they receive the majority of extensive federal subsidies going to the state, yet many other residents still live as poor, rural, landless laborers. The state's sizable poultry industry has faced similar challenges in its transition from family-run farms to large mechanized operations.[134] Of $1.2 billion from 2002 to 2005 in federal subsidies to farmers in the Bolivar County area of the Delta, only 5% went to small farmers. There has been little money apportioned for rural development. Small towns are struggling. More than 100,000 people have left the region in search of work elsewhere.[135] The state had a median household income of $34,473.[136]

As of December 2018, the state's unemployment rate was 4.7%, the seventh highest in the country after Arizona (4.9%), Louisiana (4.9%), New Mexico (5.0%), West Virginia (5.1%), District of Columbia (5.4%) and Alaska (6.5%).

Isn’t Mississippi the most obese state in the Union? Either Mississippi or Louisiana. Lots of fat people. Judging by the evacuation of the 9th Ward (medium income $12k/year) during Katrina, some of those citizens could afford to lose a few pounds. Heck, one time I was working down in the real Cajun Country with real Cajuns that have never seen a city in their lives and on a hot day decided to buy some shorts. You know, cut offs, Bermudas. The waist size started at 38 or 40 or 42, so I had to go to the boys section to find a pair that fit.

Earl hates fat people. Something a lot of Americans have in common. :)

George Rebane

Echoing the observations of my ideological colleagues, I would like to see some evidence of a broader range of red whatevers that anywhere near matches shitholes created by the Dems over their years of management. Mr Crabb's 628pm implication is that there is some level of equivalency between the results of red v. blue governance - and that dear readers is an existential crock.

So if nothing the man says gets traction here, I suggest two alternatives - 1) either show how your views are mistreated here (they aren't), or 2) join an echo chamber for your views like the one-sided auto-preening site run by the FUE.

My druthers are that you stay and show the rightwing commenters the errors of their ways in order to convince the many center-roaders and undecided readers who frequent RR pages. At a minimum you will be lauded by the hefty cohort of leftwing RR readers for showing us what for. They need a reasoned and reasoning champion to do dharma battle here.

E Cummings has gotten filthy stinking rich and his charge has gone downhill from somewhere near the septic tank to the bottom of the septic tank. And the left applauds him as a "social justice warrior".
Here's a clue for you morons on the left.
The left has been in charge of Baltimore for decades.
It's a shithole.
Unless you would like to disagree.
By say, moving there.
Oh no - we like it here in Whitey White Nevada County run largely by whitey whites!
And who is the racist?

Jeff Pelline

Fish! Join Soctt O. in Boise. For guys on a budget (AKA "economic refugees") with low expectations (no urine odor), it's nirvana. No smart growth, cars are mandatory, chain restaurants, ringed by hills that trap pollution, an an anti-environmental sentiment. And apparently no local blogs for Scott O. to opine. Sounds like Sac in the '70s. Right up your alley!

Pee-Line at 9:18 - Spoken like the poor idiot you are. You obviously have never been here. Chain eateries?
Maybe the you have never ventured off of Hwy 49 onto Brunswick. Try it some time.
Downtown Boise has electric scooters and bikes all over. A great greenbelt along the Boise River.
Tell you what.
Get UHaul to rent you one of their bigger trucks to get you here and I will be glad to take you down town and show you how stupidly and ignorantly wrong you are.
Once you get to my place, transportation will be no problem - I have a 1/2 ton truck and a 7K gross flatbed trailer to squire you around in style. You can roll out at any number of brew pubs, ethnic eateries and rib joints.
It's on me.
Once you get here.
Be fore warned - it's not as white as Nevada County, so you might encounter 'people that don't look like you'.
Best,

Jeff Pelline

Scott O,
I went to school in Berkley and Chicago (Northwestern). For you, I'm sure Boise is "diverse." A Golden Corral but also a Chuck-A-Rama. And "pink politics." Glad your happy though. I love California! One request: Can you take Fish with you? lol.

fish

Glad your happy though.


Medill F jeffty........

Gilroy - Tragic. Sad. No one had a weapon to respond.
But it's good to see that the new gun and ammo laws are taking effect.
Maybe it's time for more of the same?
Maybe you can only buy 2 bullets a day and then everything will be peachy keen?
How many bodies do they have to bury before they see that clamping down on law-abiding citizens won't do any good? Law breakers break laws.
DUH.

Sorry dude - my statements stand.
You have never been here and have no idea of what goes on.
Where you went to school has no bearing on the matter.
But - if that's all you got...

Scott O,
I've been to Boise, Idaho, and can see why it's your cup of tea. It's just not mine. But here's a thought: Invite "fish" up for "Mexican Day," "Asian Day" or "International Day" at Chuck-A-Rama and I'll buy! The location is here, next to Panda Express. LOL.

Good thing you have that truck. No way could your visitor fit in one of those little electric cars. Talk about a clown car. Oh my, the visuals make me smile.

Just today, I received a Boise moving guide sponsored link. Junk mail. Unsolicited. It even had our local area code (530) for contact information and the Move to Boise information kit, lol. I swear, I did not or have not even searched the web for Boise, Idaho. Saw that and thought of you. Made me laugh....the contact number being my area code. Must be a need, a void to fill. Maybe a local networking for the city.
Joe Albertson went to the College of Idaho, met and married his sweetheart there...she was a gal from Boise. Turn the page and Joe opened up his first supermarket in Boise at Sixteenth and State Streets. Hard to believe how fast our nation changed. Joe was born in Yukon, Oklahoma Territory ....in 1909.
The only reason I mention it was I was offered a full scholarship to College of Idaho and a bunch of small colleges I never heard of....from Jamestown College in North Dakota to some in Montana to El Paso and a bunch in California. I choose another direction and boy was my dad pissed....er...disappointed. I told him Southern Cal was too smoggy, Montana too cold, Texas too dry....I went another direction. Literally. I walked out of the house and stuck out my thumb.

Left Northern Idaho after St Helens blew....too many California’s moved in and ruint the place. Even some old friends that live up there say it got worse since I left and never go to Cour d’ lean. Breaks their hearts. Friggin Californians turn paradise into shitholes. It’s what liberals do everywhere they go. I still dream of those places....but decades later they only exist in my mind. You should have see it then. Russ did.

"fish," You struggle to stay on topic. Have you seen a doctor or psychologist? Let's hope it's not hereditary.

Scott O

Pee-line 10:00 - I have never heard of or seen a Chuck Up Rama. But I can certainly see why it's your go-to for fine scarfing (sorry - 'dining').
If you really were in Boise and that's all you saw, I'll have to wonder what kind of restrictions you were on.
Most of us are free to wander about and take in all of the fine city.
My offer stands - you show up and my flat bed trailer is ready to show you the wonders of the Treasure Valley.
P.S. - I have an engine hoist with a 2 ton capacity but in a pinch my next door neighbor's tractor does have a bucket loader.
Just saying.

Is this your idea of Boise's diversity? Just saying!
"Boise State University programs promoting diversity are under fire, after 28 state legislators, all House Republicans, urged incoming university president Marlene Tromp to abandon the university’s inclusion programs and initiatives they say are antithetical to the “Idaho way.”

PS. Spent an hour today watching videos of locals in Baltimore in the shithole parts of town. Most have never seen Cummings once there in 30 years. One woman said the last time the West Baltimore had a good economy or was happening was in 2003...and she never saw him there then.

Scott,
Stay on point if you can and address this issue of recent racism (yup) in Idaho: https://www.idahostatesman.com/news/local/education/boise-state-university/article232926762.html
As I said, Boise is no Berkeley or Chicago. Not even close. Of course, your idea of diversity seems to be "international day" at Chuck A Rama buffet. You're a lightweight in that regard and I guess, another economic refugee from California who is cloaking it as a lifestyle change. Bring "fish" along!

What’s your (see what I did there....used “your” correctly in the possessive. Not “you’re” like you did earlier.....when you earned tonight’s Medill F.) idea of diversity jeffty?

Scott O

Pee-line 10:35 - Stay on point? The point was where we live and you chose to live and raise your son in whitey white land. Or are you going to claim anything else?
That article is total BS. We don't have the time or money to kiss every grievance mongers fat ass. Hit the books and learn or go home to mommy and cry.
Boo Hoo.

Scott O,
"The Statesman is leftist trash ..."
Thanks for proving my point about your experiment in "diversity." I left you a gift certificate at the counter of Chuck-A-Rama, since the real issue for you is being an "economic refugee" from California. But you have to go on "international day." ROFLOL.

Posted by: JeffPelline | 28 July 2019 at 10:59 PM


jeffty......you sound like someone with unresolved issues......maybe you should just go to Chuck-a-Rama and try it? See if you’re into the “lifestyle”.

There’s no shame in “coming out” even at your age.

Jeff Pelline

"Jug Jiggler,"
You've wandered off topic, but don't worry. Diversity is not a problem in our family. Our family has traveled all over the world, spending our summers in Berkeley, Chicago and elsewhere. We chose to live here because it is home to my wife's family. And except for this blog, we notice that it is becoming more tolerant of diversity and politically "purple." And this blog has taught our family and our community about hate ("Ragheads," etc.). BTW, why are you afraid to sign your name?

Scott O

Jeff Pee-line "Thanks for proving my point about your experiment in "diversity."
from Wiki - "...reported that Nevada County had a population of 98,764. The racial makeup of Nevada County was 90,233 (91.4%) White"
And same for my county in Idaho - "As of the 2010 United States Census, there were 188,923 people, The racial makeup of the county was 83.0% white..."
And we have true diversity - meaning that there is a diverse point of views available.
So mister whitey white, why aren't you moving you and your family to Baltimore?
Racist much?

Scott O

"We chose to live here because it is home to my wife's family."
Well of course - they're white.

Scott O

"Ragheads" - that refers to jihadists.
Wondering why you don't move there?
Oh - of course...
They would bugger your son, rape your wife and cut off your head.
In that order.
Maybe that would stretch your idea of diversity just a bit.

Jeff Pelline

Scott O,
Well, yes, they're white. But they embrace diversity and raised their kids that way. And so does a majority of Nevada County, even though it is white. Some of the commentary on this blog is the exception, not the rule. Except for the embarrassing "rag head" discussion that occurred here a while ago, I can't think of a more illustrative example than the last week. Even you still cling to it, though you are no longer a local.

Scott O

So what the hell is "Chuck O Rama"?

Scott O

"Well, yes, they're white."
How white of you to notice.
Just coincidence, I'm sure.

Scott O

Couldn't you move them all to Baltimore?
Then they could put into practice all this diversity BS you talk about.
Oh - I know, you're too busy lecturing about how diverse you are in a whitey white county.
What a clown.

JeffPelline

Scott,
You're kidding right? It's an iconic restaurant in your part of the country:
https://www.standard.net/lifestyle/food/chuck-a-rama-celebrates-years-of-business/article_19254167-3a8e-54a9-9a0b-c6a1ccefff9c.html

Scott O

C'mon Pee-line, what is Chuck-Up-Rama? You seem really familiar with the place. I have never seen or heard of it. Is this one of those 'ethnic' places you have there on Brunswick?

Scott O

I have been all over Idaho and the Treasure Valley and down town Boise and I've never heard of or seen this place. You seem to be real into it boy.
Tell us about it!

JeffPelline

Scott,
This illustrates your ignorance: "rag heads" are not "jihidasts."
Ragheads, a slag term, is "a Muslim, Arab, Sikh, or member of any group that traditionally wears a headdress such as a turban, keffiyeh or headscarf."
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/raghead
More background here: http://www.mashupamericans.com/issues/is-it-hot-under-there/

OK - I checked out the locations.
Right near the Mormon Temple!!!
Pee-line!!
Dude!!
Now we understand!!
That's the restriction you were on!!
Your secret is safe with us - wink, wink!!!

Scott O

"rag heads" are not "jihidasts."
As to what they are here on this blog - yes they are!
And YOU referenced this blog.

JeffPelline

Scott, I notice whenever the commentators here can no longer hold an intellectual discussion it resorts to name calling (AKA, "what a clown.")
)

Scott O

So Pee-line says he was in Boise and the only eatery he can remember isn't even in down town Boise!
But it's the one he remembers!
Better get yer 'special' undies on Pee-line.
