Ah, the sight of Our Dear Friend, strolling through the aisles of Walmart, basket tucked under his arm, picking out only the freshest of fruits, vegetables and meats. Sounds like something right out of a Disney movie.

These Update threads have to be the longest and most comprehensive social experiment ever conducted. 

There was a time when I seriously didn't think he was real and that we were the subjects of some sick game.

"I will also start my water consumption tomorrow."

Do you realize how unbelievable it sounds that a "grown" human being is making that statement?

Yes, I know.  It is what it is, though.  At least it sounds better than a grown man saying water is evil.

Oh, are there people that say that or are you just giving yourself a totally unwarranted pat on the back (which does not count as exercise, all things considered)?

Oh, don't misunderstand me here: his comments in defense of his lack of dieting are great. "Sprite does wonders for my family regardless of scientific facts." You can't ask for a more dewildering statement! But I don't care to see seven posts in a row from people giving detailed diet advice when they really don't care to see him doing better anyway. The clogging of the thread doesn't make those one or two comedy nuggets worth it. He provides plenty of comedy on his own with his updates.

I want more about his social interactions.

Just walked by a man on the train wearing a button that read: "LOSE WEIGHT NOW! ASK ME HOW!"

Odds that his suggestion would have been "Drink Sprite. It does wonders for your family." ?

I skimmed over the last ten pages while on the train home. I felt badly that I skipped reading for a day or two but it looks like things were fairly boring: the usual attacks on Christian fundamentalism and diet suggestions (which he never takes. Just stop trying).

However, I must say the brief discussion of a Kenyan bride is interesting! Anyone ever think to suggest a job search in Kenya? It would check off a lot of Our Dear Friend's boxes!

How is he qualified? He was a former Republican staffer who got lucky and got this office.



Got lucky? Uh, what? Clearly, you don't know much about the guy's background. He's Senator Pileggi's former Communications and Policy Director and was former Senator Brightbill's Chief of Staff when he was Majority Leader. Please don't make him out to be just some random staffer.

It was a 'jobs for the boys' patronage appointment made at the last minute by a lame duck governor who had just lost, quite handily, his bid for reelection.  The appointment, no matter what the job, had no business being made, and the new governor, quite rightly, told him to get lost.

There was an opening and it wasn't made at the last minute. Tom Corbett lost re-election but he was elected to a four year term. He gets to make certain appointments. Please get a clue about the topic before you spout nonsense like how Corbett "had no business" making a perfectly legal appointment.

One of the newbies (who seems to be racking up a lot of posts very quickly) said that my inability to see something wrong with lame duck appointments (which wasn't even actually my argument) says everything people need to know about my "ethics." Apparently, that's the great moral question in Canada!
61  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: PA: Wolf one week in office and already sued on: February 05, 2015, 07:01:24 pm
Haha, wait a minute...it's a crummy thing for Corbett to do? Newsflash: there was an opening in a post. Corbett was still Governor. He legally appointed someone. I'm sorry if you continue to be so blinded by your hatred that you think making appointments in one's final days is some massive ethical lapse (I'm sure you were very quick to do that for recess appointments by certain Dem Presidents!).

Here in Canada, accepting last minute legal appointments cost former Prime Minister John Turner his job in 1984.  The good people of Canada realized who was to blame and, just like I'm sure the good people of PA will, it wasn't the person who tried to fire them.

If you can't see that making a lame duck appointment is wrong it says all about your 'ethics' that I think anybody needs to know.

Yeah, people will be absolutely furious that a qualified person was appointed at the "last minute" to be the Open Records Director. Roll Eyes  We aren't talking about Supreme Court appointments or something.

Wolf had no good - legal or ethical - reason to fire the guy and it's not like he's super controversial. But I wasn't even arguing that this will take a toll on his popularity with the public. I quite clearly stated that the relationship between Wolf and the GOP legislative leaders has already soured.

By the way, if you want to lecture me about my "ethics" over lame duck appointments, I'm sure you railed against others that made them. And I'm sure you are absolutely appalled over recess appointments (for much more consequential offices), too, right?

Perhaps the best part of your joke post was that my inability to see lame duck appointments as wrong says "all about my ethics" that "anybody needs to know." I'm glad that's the ethical litmus test!

In Germany, Dortmund lose. Again. They've solidified their last place spot. Such a genuine shame.

Taking a sip of water right before bed is too strenuous.

The sad fact is that I likely drank more water before and after brushing my teeth this morning than Our Dear Friend will have in three days.

I'll absolutely agree to that. You know I respect you. To quote The Office, "You're a wonderful woman...and you're a helluva bowler!"

That said, do me a favor and have a drink of water. You were complaining about the heat earlier on Facebook. Maybe you can cool down with a glass of ice water.

Wait. Was I not supposed to bring up Facebook here at all?

If God can take away flu symptoms if he wants, then the question becomes, why doesn't He want to take away Bushie's? Has Bushie angered Him? Wait... you guys don't think... oh god no, Bushie have you briefly relaxed lately?!

Maybe He wants to teach me a lesson?  Most of the time, He doesn't take illnesses away on our timing, but His timing is perfect and there is always a reason to the suffering.  Although, I believe God is taking away my symptoms tonight.  I'm not near as miserable as I was about 4-6 hours ago.

Well, if there's anything we've learned, it's that you always learn your lesson!

It appears ODF is well on his journey. RIP.

Someone did warn him on his Facebook that he could have the flu, "which is deadly."

I got rid of several people from here on Facebook so they wouldn't bring ANYTHING from Facebook over to the forum.  So, why did you just do that?

RIP Phil, soon to be purged like the rest of us. Cry

Yes, that comment definitely sounded vaguely threatening. A second wave of purges may be on the horizon.

I'm not threatening anybody with anything.  I just want the copy and paste from my Facebook to stop.  They don't do that to anybody else so why would they do it to me?

Whoa, whoa, Dear Friend! What the hell did I "copy and paste?" You skating on thin ice, bub!
