Remember Leroy Fick who won 2 million dollars in the Michigan lottery and was still using foodstamps? He will be on The Lottery Changed my Life on TLC today at 5pm.

Guess Who's Back?

    Thanks, Win.

    Good ol' Leroy, always good for a laugh.

    And his son, whoa now, he's one of my favorite libs of all time, lol.

      You're a funny lib, BigHickNed, but oh so typical and oh so predictable.

      And oh, how you love to drone on and on and on about how you're not a lib (Methinks he doth protest too much). Ya think?

      No Ned, you're a lib and you know it, I know it, everybody knows it. Deal with it, son.

       

      And no, Ned, I don't think you hate America because you believe in "preserving our environment". I just think you're a dope for falling for Al Gore and every agenda-driven lib scientist's nonsense about man-made global warming. If you don't believe that the earth has been going through ice ages and warming periods and cooling periods for it's entire history before cow farts and your dumbass arrived, well, I can't help ya, Ned. You just go on believing Al (the bloated one) Gore, cuz he knows best and makes tons of money when schmucks like you go hysterical and volunteer to put corks in all the cows asses. Have at it, Ned, do your part to "save the environment", son. Hug those trees, buddy. Send Al some more money.

       

      "As far as shutting up anyone I disagree with, I'm not trying to shut you up."

      LOL, that's rich, Ned. The thing you want to do most is the thing you most vehemently deny you want to do. You just keep repeating it, Ned. Over and over.

      I'm convinced,  Wink now all you have to do is convince yourself.

      That must have been me that said I wanted the "mods" to shut the thread down, right?

      Alrighty then.

       

      In conclusion, try to keep one thing straight, Ned. This thread was titled "Welfare & Jackpot Lottery Winners." If someone talking about the topic of welfare is going to "offend" you, then please don't read it. Just because you and a couple other lib weirdos don't like the topic doesn't mean it should be locked down. I doubt very much that the Welfare people are watching this thread if you're worried they might take yall's foodie cards away. Your food stamps are safe, I'm sure.

       

      Oh yeah, one more thing.

      "...go pee yourself."

      Now, that wasn't nice at all, Ned.

      You're gonna hurt my feelin's if you keep up all that macho talk.

      That is macho talk where you come from, ain't it Ned?   LOL

       I was concerned about global warming loong before conservatives made him the clown puppet head of the green movement. I could care less what gore has to say about the matter rather the overwhelming majority of scientists across the globe who see it as a big problem. Of course any scientist who sees it as a problem MUST be a liberal right? You see that? any single issue that anyone disagrees with u on instantly makes them an America hating commie liberal. You're a fool to think that billions of tons of man-produced emissions has no effect on the environment.

       And everyone is aware of the "natural" warming and cooling processes of this planet, this doesn't mean humans aren't capable of speeding up the process you dolt. Why don't you do some independant research instead of just regurgitating what the right wing talk shows tell you? Because you're a f#cking idiot who hasn't the slightest clue where to start. You're incapable of thinking for yourself. You vote republican so you must adhere to all their agenda because your god Rush Limbaugh tells you so. Ask yourself;How much exactly is gore making off global warming? then ask How much are oil companies making by denying it?

       But I digress, to continue into that debate is to feed into your BS and makes me no better than you. I don't have a food card so I don't really have a dog in this fight but I do believe there are people who need help and should get it because that is what makes us human WE HELP EACH OTHER. Your every man for himself survival of the fittest attitude is the law of the wild not that of a civilized society. Those that don't need it and still recieve it such as the leach lady in the story should be dealt with harshly, that is my opinion on the matter and my vote in the poll reflects that.

       As far as my statement to go pee yourself, It was made in jest, it amuses me that you chose to pick that comment apart and question my manhood. Where I come from, you wouldn't survive. You have neither the intelligence nor the balls to survive growing up where I did. So don't talk to me about whats macho you cowardly internet tough guy.

              "Of course any scientist who sees it as a problem MUST be a liberal right? You see that?"

              Yes BigHickNed, I see that. I also see that 90% of teachers are liberals and admit it and 90% of journalists are liberals and admit it, so what's your point?

              Given that, are you saying that 90% of scientists can't possibly be nanny-state, agenda-driven libs? Cut me some heavy slack, Neddie. Gimme a break. Any scientist who disagrees with your hero Al Gore (and they are legion), doesn't get a seat at the table. And anybody who states the fact that there are more Polar Bears alive now than at any other time in history, gets his microphone shut off before being dragged out by Security at any of Al's Big-Buck Speeches. Wake up, numbnuts.

               

              And yes, Ned, the ice that covers Greenland is melting away. OMG! It's the end of the world!

              Ever wonder why it's called Greenland, Ned, you insufferable moron?

               

              Oh, and before I forget, you like to use the word "independent" a lot, Neddie.

              Could you please  learn how to spell it? Please?

              I won't go into all the other misspellings but that one just grates on my nerves. Or let mediacrap rewrite everything for you, he's smarter than you are.

               

              I really don't enjoy educating morons like you, Ned, I usually just block them after I see how incredibly stupid they are and they start to bore me to distraction by reciting the same old mantra of lib talking points over and over and over.

              So don't be offended if I block you at some point. 

              I'll harbor no hard feelings, I just can't listen to boring morons endlessly.

              And you can still repeat all your boring nonsense to the other morons I've blocked.

              Because I believe what the warden in Cool Hand Luke said - "Some men you just can't reach."

               

              Oh, and I'm very impressed with the tales of your tough neighborhood where you grew up, Neddie. I can just imagine the horror of being told to "go pee yourself" all the time. I'd be scared to set foot in Mass with all those libs telling me to "go pee yourself".  It must be terrifying! LOL I don't know who I'd be more afraid of, Bawney Fwank or John (Horse Face) Kerry.  LOL

                 Yeah because you're the picture of maturity with your big bright colorful font to draw attention to your post's instead of actually making a valid point about anything. And I suppose your never failing to stroke ridge's ego is also the mature thing to do as well. You two should get a room....and invite Barney to join you LOL Don't feel sorry for me bud, I actually have friends outside of the internet.

                   I love that nickname you got for me there "ned" , it amuses me. Do you feel that it proves you right about anything ? I suppose I'll come up with one for you then I could feel as witty are you are. And you'll just have to concede th argument with my incredibly funny pet name for you. How about Barbara ? Yeah that works. Hey barbara please dont block me, I pwomise I'll be nice Wink.

                   Teachers tend to be liberal because they are unionized you idiot. Unions back Liberals. Please tell me something I don't already know. Your thoughts on Gore are pointless. He's not a scientist. I have never once listened to one of his speeches on the matter. I suppose according to you the worldwide scientific community are all liberals they're all voting for Democrats here in the US. Oh wait since when does a scientist in Japan or Germany or Austrailia vote in the US or give a flying farck about the battle between our politicians or Al Gore's bank account you idiot?

                   Hey Barabara, I know what will prove my point, I'll make fun of politicians looks. Oh yeah , Kerry has a horse face na na na na na naaaaaa ! LOL OMG Barb you're so funny and smart, stop me if I start to sound like Dana..  You're a joke, an internet bully who thinks he can push everyone around by hiding behind the "you're a lib if you disagree" argument. It really amazes me how dumb some people can be. The sad thing is if this was a discussion about almost anything else political, you would agree with about everything I have to say but you're too simple minded to understand that not everyone is a liberal or conservative. Not everyone is a Democrat or Republican. You choose to label me because you can't fathom anyone thinking for themselves.

                    Libs never get tired of whining.   Case in point ^

                    And I'm sure you do have friends in Mass, BigHickNed. Is Michael Dukakis one of them?LOL He was your Mass tough guy for President a while back, LOL.

                    I loved the picture of him in the tank!Green laugh

                    Dukakis, hmmm...

                    Dukakis... doesn't that sound like what you tell a baby when you're toilet-training him?

                       I love that nickname you got for me there "ned" , it amuses me. Do you feel that it proves you right about anything ? I suppose I'll come up with one for you then I could feel as witty are you are. And you'll just have to concede th argument with my incredibly funny pet name for you. How about Barbara ? Yeah that works. Hey barbara please dont block me, I pwomise I'll be nice Wink.

                       Teachers tend to be liberal because they are unionized you idiot. Unions back Liberals. Please tell me something I don't already know. Your thoughts on Gore are pointless. He's not a scientist. I have never once listened to one of his speeches on the matter. I suppose according to you the worldwide scientific community are all liberals they're all voting for Democrats here in the US. Oh wait since when does a scientist in Japan or Germany or Austrailia vote in the US or give a flying farck about the battle between our politicians or Al Gore's bank account you idiot?

                       Hey Barabara, I know what will prove my point, I'll make fun of politicians looks. Oh yeah , Kerry has a horse face na na na na na naaaaaa ! LOL OMG Barb you're so funny and smart, stop me if I start to sound like Dana..  You're a joke, an internet bully who thinks he can push everyone around by hiding behind the "you're a lib if you disagree" argument. It really amazes me how dumb some people can be. The sad thing is if this was a discussion about almost anything else political, you would agree with about everything I have to say but you're too simple minded to understand that not everyone is a liberal or conservative. Not everyone is a Democrat or Republican. You choose to label me because you can't fathom anyone thinking for themselves.

                      Sorry Ned, I gotta go.

                      Takin' the little woman out for vittles.

                      But you go ahead and chow down on that gubmint cheese while I'm gone.

                      I did look over your post though, and Neddie boy, you're really starting to bore me.

                      I haven't blocked you yet but it's getting close. You may soon join the ranks of the stupidest of the stupid. It's a small group but what they lack in numbers they make up for in stupidity.

                      Later, Ned.

                        "But non-lottery topics are still being discussed 3 pages later in this thread and on many more."

                        Translation:   "OMG! Somebody shut Ridge up! He's saying things that I don't agree with for God sakes! I know I don't have to read it and I know I could block him if I wanted to, but I don't want to! I can't stop myself from reading it! And I don't want anyone else reading it!  I want somebody to shut him up!"

                        "Teacher! Teacher!"    LOL 

                        Updated Translation: The post mcginnin was talking about that I commented on was not yours.

                        But I can see your mistake because my post was made after several of yours and many others. I really don't care if any are off topic or not; I was making a prediction. If only my lottery number predictions were as accurate.

                          Geeshhh........maybe what we need is a Fox news moderator, to referee and keep track of these hundreds of intertwining threads, posts

                          and forums. Of course that will cost some coin, what say we all chip in a buck a week? This way we can keep more accurate tabs on all the

                          bashing, smashing, threats, insults, intimidation's and compliments that are being thrown around like confetti on a Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

                           

                          Once we get our moderator,   Hippywe may want to further consider hiring some cheerleaders for opposing sides to keep the morale high.    PartyBeyond that it might be a good idea to keep a certified BS Meter on hand, to track and tally up the daily bull from thread

                          to thread. Awards should be given out for the biggest and most frequent BS'ers. (A BS tee shirt or hat?).      Type
