  1. That's bull****. Everybody just wants to have something to point at and slobber out " see...see, they're not covering things fairly", while disregarding the the inconsistencies in their own news/entertainment outlets. That you would piss on a news agency and follow that with "at least that's what I saw on the internet" just illustrates the pettiness of your sentiment here.
  2. For ****'s sake who gives a s***. Good Lord you guys after insufferable some days.
  3. NPR did a reasonably long piece on it. Maybe you should check them out.
  4. Youth rebellion looks even stupider now than it did when I was a kid.
  5. Yes. I think so, but ICHY is the hermit in the wood. The facepalms are gentle reminders that he still listens.
  6. I don't know, but when I get one (thumbs down) from certain participants here I feel like there is a karmic tally that's being tabulated which is vastly more important.
  7. It's always nice to be in the thoughts of another. Enjoy your Geritol nightcap and sleep well.
  8. Good thing he's got you to come to his defense. Kind of weird seeing you White Knight for the old boy.
  9. You always make me feel special PT. Hope you're having a wonderful evening, you old curmudgeon.
  10. His hair looking better. Is the hamberder on a silver tray kind of like the golden toilet?
  11. I don't think I play the troll enough to merit that mark upon my profile. Gracias.
  12. Here's a Deal Blasio quote from your article: “When a landlord tries to push out a tenant by making their home unlivable, a team of inspectors and law enforcement agents will be on the ground to stop it in time,” he said, according to the New York Daily News. “If the fines and the penalties don’t cut it, we will seize their buildings and we will put them in the hands of a community nonprofit that will treat tenants with the respect they deserve.” I'm not in NYC, nor am I familiar with the circumstances of owning and renting property in NYC, but a few questions come to mind before we make the jump to hysteria you seem to have made: 1. What are the conditions of neglect referenced by the mayor? Are those conditions clearly defined and reasonable? 2. What is the timeline for meeting inspection and repair requirements? 3. What laws currently exist to prevent slumlord behavior? 4. There seems to be a process in place for building owners to avoid the seizure mechanism? 5. Would rewriting building condemnation law be more effective than government seizure, i.e. buildings are condemned and a lien is placed until issues are resolved while current tenants have a protected right of occupancy? All in all this seems like an extreme measure that is tantamount to eminent domain to protect tenants and punish slumlords. I'm not a fan of eminent domain, but I can see how landlords use unethical and/or illegal strategies to manipulate tenants. In a city like NYC that is probably a big deal. No need to be hyperbolic about it.
  13. I really have to wonder is he a white supremacist or just amazingly stupid, like doesn't understand the fundamental meaning of words stupid? Either way, he should probably just find a new line of work.
  14. I glossed. Just thought the name was interesting being a prominent 80s actor.
