Sigh, I miss the simpler days. Have a Bar-B-Q, invite
the town. Hold a town meeting. Vote SCO's out,
everyone parties till dark, then we burn 'em down and
lynch 'em if they run.
Carpet baggers. When I was a platoon Sergeant
(Grandpa winds up), I would take at least a stripe, if
not two, if some moron took credit for another
soldier's work (good or bad).
I hope those SOBs never get another job. Pick-pockets
and thieves, the lot of them!
What goes through one's mind before one decides to
pervert a good concept and steal common property? Can
you imgine how many times these degenerates reached
into the communion plate and took money out instead of
putting money in? I'd hate to be blind beggar near
Ah, its just makes me angry. I am going to go read
cartoons. I see y'all tommorow after the red haze
If only SCO was based in the South where "They needed
killing" is a sound defense!
No good, sheep killing, dog stealing, wife beating,
inbread, lilly-livered, cowerdly, sniveling,
low-browed, dirty-minded, tax-cheating, non-driving,
good for nothing, stupid excuses for mammals! SCO
isn't competent to fill sand bags. They don't have
the sense to pound sand for the love of Mike! They
ain't got the sense God promised a box of rocks and
gave to a door knob!
