I'm pretty sure Glenn and Orson and Sarah all honor that sacrifice for its contribution to the survival of freedom. I cannot speak for Charles I or the monkeys that throw poop. Did Xerxes have any monkeys throwing, say, firepoop?

Xerxes: "Worship me. Abort your babies and bear mine under a public option or I will darken the skies with taxes and deficits not even your grandchildren will begin to pay!"

Sarah(wiping firepoop off her rouge): "Then I will campaign in the shade."

Full disclosure: The word 'rouge' also refers to Canadian football. Sorry Hunter.

I am terribly confused.

Non sequitors are not a convincing tactic.

Full disclosure: I have done a lot of different things. This is manifested in my communications. I speak and think daily in another language. That alone makes it difficult for me to talk clearly with you.
If that weren't enough I am odd. I know that. It makes it tough to find a good date on Friday nights. Why do you think I am on here with you losers so much.
That said, I have compression fractures and multiple head injuries. God in his infinite wisdom saw fit to tie my mind. I am attempting to free it here. With you.
This has taken me fifteen minutes to write. Stick with me. It will be good for both of us......

Sorry about the head hurts, bringer. I know someone who, despite being still young and vigorous, had an aneurysm that creates both physical mental impairment.

The body being an externally visible system,he can easily comprehend the nature of his physical impairments.

He is often confounded, however, by the damage done to his cognition, and despite his overall brilliance (one of the very smartest folks I've known), regularly steps into mental sinkholes without realizing it and then wonders why we proffer him rope.

That said, I observe that you rather indulge the personal vainglory.

Bringer, I feel for you. Those kinds of aches are hard to overcome in the usual way- mind over matter. I would suggest that a slower building of the case you wish to make, could be what you need to bring us along with your ideas.

Otherwise, on Sarah-

PALIN-FEY 2012!

There. I think he'll remember that I'm not him now. And I didn't even have to write it down for him.

Hunter, did you find out I was right about the the rouge and the Canadian football connection? You got some 'splainen to do.

I don't think anybody would be confused about that. I know I'm not, but bringer it on if you want to fight about it.

"So here I find a gauntlet of high minded chair dwellers, relishing the tawdry expose', the skewering and spit roasting of yet another public figure who has dared to disagree."

For me, it is that she so consistently and publicly dares to be stupid. To me, it's a performance to be sincerely applauded with flaming poop.

I *do* relish "high minded chair dwellers". That's a trope and a half. As I perceive , it's genius is that

a) "high" followed by "minds" connotes an elevation that is immediately brought low by

b) "chair dwellers", which phrase masterfully connotes descent, even debasement, by "chair" 's association with the organs of sitting (buttocks) and "dwellers" 's inscrutably subterranean ambiance.

When I discover or put forth such a trope, I am extremely pleased with myself.

bringer, I'm afraid I'm still confused about the rouge and football connection. I'm not much of a sports fan.

Could you explain?

rouge  /ruʒ/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [roozh] Show IPA noun, verb, rouged, roug⋅ing.
Use rouge in a Sentence
See web results for rouge
See images of rouge
–noun 1. any of various red cosmetics for coloring the cheeks or lips.
2. a reddish powder, chiefly ferric oxide, used for polishing metal, glass, etc.
3. Canadian football.

Hunter, do they still celebrate boxing day? This was a weak feint to set you up for a jab/hook combo.
Basically infers that Canada where the mounties were men and the moose ran scared is drifting so far left that even the soccer is socialist.

Keener,
To me the key word was not 'high' nor 'minded' nor 'chair' nor 'dweller'.

To me 'relish' is. In your place I would not relish what you do. I too am a chair dweller as fate would have it and have no quarrel with the high minded until they reveal themselves to be servants of a most low god.

Al,

I was talking to myself. I have two personalities. One that rises out of the fog to communicate somewhat effectively. And one that lapses into the Yoda grammar with double negatives for emphasis. This one is due to kick in momentarily.

And someone on another thread was speculating that Bringer was an alter ego and that I was you. So I turned to me and said, "No, that can't be true." I/we argued for a minute but he decided that I was right. I gracefully accepted his concession.

Are we cool? By that I mean you and me, not..umm... me and...you know...him.

Keener,
To qualify what I said about 'dweller' status, I rank it somewhat beneath 'doer' status.

You are familiar that old salute to academia, no?

"Those who can, do. Those who can't, doo."

Keener,

More clearly said:

A 'doer' who 'doos' another 'doer' is above the line, having paid his dues.

So therefore a 'dweller' can 'doo' another dweller like you do to me and no doubt will continue doing. Yet I the 'dooee' will abide.

But 'dooer' is a lower class than a 'dweller' don't you think? So take care, dear Keener, that as you stoop to 'doo', you may stop being even a 'dweller' and become only a 'dooer'.

You'll have to excuse me now, Keener, I have to go to the loo. That is where I deposit MY doo.

Let's meet on this planet and discuss it. Let me know if that will be possible.

'3. Canadian football. "

I thought you made that up, but it is a definition of rouge. You give us too much credit for Canucktitude, or you're just being obscure to be coy. I go with the latter.

Settle down and talk in our language, not just our vocabulary. I would guess (as have others) that a pulse beats within your fevered brain.

I did not know that. I guess we're weirder than we thought.

And yes, we still have Boxing Day, though it's mostly a day to shop like crazy, like Black Friday for you southern folk.

And we're actually trending right, at the moment. Blasted Tories.

In your cyber safety you grow bold. Your rouge is not on camera.

Check out the threads. I have been hammered. The worst part was being thought an alter ego.

I don't yet know who they think I am pretending to be. Maybe you.

Although I have had adware popping up the sidebars that reflects knowledge of the subjects on these threads.

I fear I will yet be known.

Just to correct bringer (and to help out NobleHunter's education) 'Rouge' does not refer to Canadian football. It is however the alternate name for a single-point play in Canadian football, where the receiving team on a kick is unable to move the ball forward out of the end-zone.

DonaldD, the 3rd definition of rouge on dictionary.com is Canadian Football. If that's not accurate, then bringer is pulling our collective leg and I helped him. I see now that other places define it as you do.

But I did qualify that very honestly with Hunter in boxing terms as a feint, also known as a fake. Which is a technique I will use, along with pathos, and theatrics, and even proper grammar for shock effect.

I have no idea what the algorithm is, but I've seen way too many adds displayed that related to adult incontinence. I truly hope that I do not become known (prescience in this case would suck)

Funny. I'll have to check back through the threads. If it turns out that adult diaper thing I said causes any grief, please know it was a spurt of uncontainable excess on my part. I sometimes hear the burbling of turbulent waters in the fog of my brain reminding me that-- oops, got to go.

Active new members draw more criticism than established ones, Bringer, probably because it is harder to understand what they are saying without years of experience with their point of view. So misunderstandings are more likely to arise. But I have had no complaints about your posts.
