Re: “Red Out, Again

Found this article earlier today and, well, I got a bit peeved. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Gritz when I was a teenager, up in Kamiah, where I grew up. Nice guy, with common sense about our country. I disagree with Mr. Cope's opinion about North Idaho, across the board, primarily because I doubt the fool lived there 20 years and has little idea of the quality of individual up there, who actually have a clue about what's going on. Kind of makes sense that Cope resides in Boise, the liberal "bastion" of Idaho, where his completely misguided and outright ridiculous nonsense will actually be read by some receptive people. Luckily, we still outnumber these muppets.

Re: “Red Out

Liberals are now just as bad as the conservatives they hate. Spewing stereotypical, bigoted, hate speech any time anyone disagrees with their point of view. The drivel above is proof. How hateful you have become.

Re: “Pricking of My thumbs

Well just exactly where are all these techno geniuses from Silicon Valley who have so carefully nurtured their eager young proteges with their capitol and wisdom and now have time to serve their country by running for elective office? By not engaging in the process and therefore not encouraging debate on important issues they are creating the vacuum that the clown car thrives in. How much easier to simply reign as Yachtmasters of the Universe, ensconsed in custom made clown clippers, pausing occasionally to hand out trinkets to the natives, eagerly chanting their mantra, I phone, I cloud, I tune, I, I,I.

Re: “Pricking of My thumbs

Why single out the GOP, you ask? Well, in a two party system - which is what we really have (sorry hopeful independents, libertarians, greens, etc.) there are only two choices, and since the GOP has sauntered out so many 'would be' candidates, they are simply easy targets, especially when they open their idiotic mouths and start speaking!!!!

Re: “Pricking of My thumbs

Why single out the GOP, Rember? Just a hat-tip to the Party Line? Acknowledging the infallibility of the revered Democrat Party?

Those are interesting observations, but I say there's still enough room, if they squeeze, for Queen Pantsuit and Socialist Bernie... and Biden can cling desperately to the back of the car as it putt-putt-putts along - a million laughs!

Try to keep your observations objective... BW already has plenty of Democrat Tools!

Re: “Mr. Cope's Cave: The Proper Way to Flush a Flag

Cope, Roof's father gave him a .45 caliber pistol for his 21st birthday. A gun like that is meant to kill PEOPLE-You can't even hunt deer and sage hens with one. As much as we like our war movies and western revenge sagas here in THE WEST, we cannot forget that. Killing people is old-fashioned. It is passe. It is gauche. It is just plain a bad thing to do. The popularity of American Sniper dumbfounded me. Have we not moved beyond that shit? Clint Eastwood is and always has been a moron. I have had my little rant. Forgive me.

Re: “Duggaring Our Own Grave

Have to comment on Cope's book, "Artists Save the Galaxy". I have read about 2/3 of it and it is a great read. Well done Bill! Great insight mixed with great humor. If I am not laughing, I am cry in agreement with the state of affairs we (they) find ourselves (themselves) in. "Night is for Tender, Day is for Divorce."

Re: “Duggaring Our Own Grave

Aren't the Duggars some TV-reality family? And this week's serving of Cold Cope Tripe is a critique of their lifestyle? (I'm not wasting my time by reading it.)

When I was a kid, I had a friend who lived with his grandma. She'd watch the soap operas during the day, and then in the evening she'd call her friend on the phone and they'd discuss what happened that day on the Soaps. We thought it was pretty funny, but I'd say Cope's trajectory is in about the same place.

Re: “Minerva's Breakdown

Well said, Miss!

I think the people that judge, are the ones who work the hardest at 'fitting in.' Aren't willing to let their own inner freak flag fly.
