I like to hang out in grocery stores a lot, just to sort of wander around aimlessly. They can't really kick you out as long… More »

Re: “Hypocritical, Illogical, Societal Expectations

Hey "Chubby McHutchence": Yeah, I kinda got bored halfway through your scribblings, but I thought I got the gist of what was pounded out on your keyboard. I took another look and not only managed to get through it all, but realized that you did, in fact, address servers. Kudos to you, good sir; it's the little victories that count.

Re: “Hypocritical, Illogical, Societal Expectations

According to "Chunty McHutchence," we're only supposed to tip for cocktails and expressos? Then why have I tipped for every beer and house coffee I've ever ordered? Dammit! And what about wait staff? What sort of "creative" product are they providing for us?

Re: “I, Anonymous

I like to yip it up too. In fact, I was just yipping it up right before I came inside to write this. I like to set my fireworks off weeks before the 4th of July and my buds and I were yipping it up over yonder in my backyard. My bud Henry comes to me and says, "Ya'll gotta get in here and read what some liberal posted on that liberal website called the Mercury about shooting off fireworks." I was all like, "What in the hell you talking 'bout and what on god's green earth is website? Leave me alone Henry, I'm yipping it up here." Anyway, he managed to explain this whole internet thing and convinced me to look at this here screen where letters glow and words form and I don't like what I read one bit, not one bit. Now if you pardon me, I have to speak my mind: The fourth of July is an American holiday and being such a day, we done have the god-given right to blow stuff up, plain and simple. Damn liberals with their whole "pollution" gripe and saying that nobody who is "intelligent" can "logically" say that yipping it up is justified. WHATEVER.

I don't get it. This guy "Todd" is somehow famous on the Mercury's website? I mean, sure, I've read some of his posts, but a celebration? Uh… ok.

Re: “Last True 'merican

“Well regulated” meant that State militias were to be well trained and that training was to be supervised by the States (i.e., the States were to appoint officers who were to oversee that training). (This was the clock-like aspect of "well regulated".)

But at the same time, “well regulated” also referred to the lawful power the Congress was to have over the State militias, that is, Congress was to promulgate and enact a system of rules governing the conduct and/or activity of said militias, as well as the legal authority the President would have over them when acting as Commander-in-Chief.

Even George Washington thought people like "Dread Uptown" were ignorant hicks:

"If I was called upon to declare upon Oath, whether the Militia have been most serviceable or hurtful upon the whole; I should subscribe to the latter." – George Washington, September 1776
