  1. There were so many other truly funny and outrageous scenes in the move besides divine eating a dog turd to prove once and for all that she was the filthiest person alive. I liked the scene where the guy lip-lynched the song "surfin bird" by the Trashmen with his exposed butthole.
  2. Did you ever see Pink Flamingos? That was one of the greatest and filthiest movies ever made!
  3. So is abortion illegal now and the government can no longer subsidize it? Or is it up to individual states to decide? The Libs as usual, don't have their facts straight, so they're running around like their hair is on fire and the media is encouraging it and distorting the facts as usual. Same sh!t, different day.
  4. This graphic was obviously designed by someone who scored very low on a mechanical aptitude test. In the military, that person would be assigned to be either a file clerk a cook.
  5. Yeah, that guy looks like he might be a pervert. Is that Joe Biden?

  7. That is hilarious but politically incorrect to the max. It would get you permanently banned from the Canadian Forum. But I made an improved version:
  8. The first Glock I ever shot was a Glock 17 in 1998 following the famous North Hollywood bank shootout. I lived just a few blocks from that bank and was away from home that day but my next door neighbor as barricaded in his home with no gun while the neighborhood was closed off and the suspects were still at large. That freaked him out and he knew that I had guns so I went to the local gun shop with him to pick one out and while I favored 1911's he liked the Glock 17 and bought onethat day and when he picked it up he had me go to the range with him to show him how to use it and I also took my Lightweight commander to show him that. He was happy with the Glock but I much preferred my Commander and didn't really like the size and the shape and the balance and the feel of the Glock 17, but I did like the basic simplicity of the gun and the ammo capacity and the fact that it seemed very reliable with differet kinds of ammo even with a new shooter not always gripping it properly. But a couple of years later I moved out of California back to America and kind of liked the new 10mm cartridge and was interested in a 10mm Glock but hadn't had a chance to look at one, but did get a chance to see a Glock 19 and I liked it so much better than the Glock 17 that I bought one and that was my first Glock but I soon traded it for a Glock 23 which was the same basic gun but chambered in a caliber that began with the number 4 instead of the number 3 and had ballistics a lot closer to the 45 than it did to the 9 nut was about the same size as my Commander but lighter weight and held more ammo. I eventually did get a Glock 20 in 10mm but it was a Gen 3 G20C and then I got to handle a G20 SF and the frame fit my hand so much better that I sold the almost new G20c for good price and bought a new G20SF.
  9. Yep. I basically like Patterson and have read a lot of his books. He's an interesting writer because he almost always writes with a co-author and what he does is just wrte an outline of the story and then lets the co-author fill in the details while he starts working on another story and that's how he manages to completes several books in a year. It also allows him to help other authors get name recognition and he writes with as many female authors as he does men so it's not just old white guys like himself that he works with. He also knows the publishing business better than most people and he knows what he's talking about. Paterson also wrote an extensively researched book on Jefferey Epstein which in my opinion is the most authoritative book on the subject written. It's titled, "Filthy Rich: The Shocking True Story of Jeffrey Epstein". Becoming a best selling author s like becoming a top grossing movie actor or a top selling musician. You're competing with the most talented people in the world and you have to have exceptional talent to reach the top and if you don't have the talent you're not going to do well. But these days you really are more likely to be given an opportunity to publish your work if you're a Black Female Transsexual Marxist than if you're an old white guy because the powers that be these days have embraced virtue signaling above all else and for Patterson to try to appease the Fascists on the Left is cowardly and unprincipled. He could have clarified his statement better without totally selling out and retracting the statement he made which was basically 100% true. '
  10. And after he apologized, MSLSD said it wasn't good enough, but what are they gonna do, boycott his books at the end of his career when he's already sold millions? James Patterson's claim that racism hampers white men is his most fictional work yet Fondness for the “good old days” betrays a desire to return to a time where white American men controlled even more. June 16, 2022, By Jesse J. Holland, MSNBC Opinion Columnist According to bestselling writer James Patterson, the self-proclaimed “world’s bestselling author,” white men are having a hard time finding writing jobs in film, theater, TV and publishing in America. Patterson, a white man who really came to fame by writing novels starring Alex Cross, a crime-solving Black detective, this alleged lack of jobs for white male writers is “just another form of racism." In an interview with The Sunday Times, Patterson, who has an estimated net worth of $800 million, said, "What’s that all about? Can you get a job? Yes. Is it harder? Yes. It’s even harder for older writers. You don’t meet many successful 52-year-old white males just starting out."It’s an argument we hear way too often in the United States from white people who believe the mere presence of people of color in rarified or even less rarified spaces can only mean there’s been some mistreatment of white people. The backlash to Patterson’s stupid statement prompted a mealy-mouthed apology from him on Twitter: "I apologize for saying white male writers having trouble finding work is a form of racism. I absolutely do not believe that racism is practiced against white writers. Please know that I strongly support a diversity of voices being heard—in literature, in Hollywood, everywhere.” Even that apology doesn’t retract Patterson’s original rant. He now says that it might not be racism that’s to blame but that white males as a group are having a hard time finding work, by which he must mean that they’re not dominating entertainment and publishing to the total exclusion of everybody else. Because all the numbers show that white people are over-represented and other races are being wrongly excluded. In a survey of widely read English language fiction books published by America’s biggest publishing houses, two authors writing for The New York Times found that in 2018, 89% of those authors were white, even though white people make up only 60% of the population. That’s little better than the pair’s finding that between 1950 and 2018, 95% of the authors of such books were white. Also, according to the Diversity Baseline Survey, in 2019, 76% of the publishing industry was white. White Americans also dominate Hollywood entertainment. While minority audiences buy the most movie tickets, people from such groups accounted for 25.4% of Hollywood directors and 25.9% of film writers in 2020. And it’s not just in publishing and entertaining. This is true in just about every desirable white-collar job. White men have advantaged access to high-paying white and blue collar jobs in most states. And even advantages to the better working-class jobs. Who are white men’s greatest competitors? Better educated white women, according to the report “Race, States, and the Mixed Fate of White Men.” Patterson appears to be fondly remembering a more racist America and wishing for its return. There’s an old (Marxist?) axiom that says, “To the privileged, equality feels like oppression.” But as the above numbers show, things are nowhere near equality and yet Patterson is speaking as if white men are oppressed. When I hear older white men talking about their fondness for the “good old days” or making this country “great again,” all I hear is that they want to return to a time where white American men controlled everything and deserved everything. Oh, they moan, if we could only go back to the good old days, when men were men and women were women and we didn’t have to think about color or gender or sexuality. Things were good back then. Never once do they mention their domination did not come through fair competition. White men weren’t on top because they out-competed other workers. Their dominance came at the barrel of a gun, at the feet of a mob, or through the use of a noose. And via legalized sexism, racism and homophobia. (At this point, the MSNBC writer must be foaming at the mouth) They don’t seem to notice that in that glorious past they remember, white men benefited from others not being allowed to compete. So they didn’t always win by skill. Sometimes they won by default. The book on that world is closed, both in fiction and in reality. Cry about it, if you want. The rest of us? We’re glad to be finally getting to a world that at least pretends to give everyone a chance, instead of assuming that only white is right. Instead of pretending that there’s an absence of white male authors, Patterson should acknowledge the absence of writers who aren’t and put his famous Black detective on the case. It won’t take long for Patterson's Black protagonist Alex Cross to name the culprit as racism: but the real racism, not the made-up kind Patterson suggests harms people like himself. (People like himself??? does that mean people who are only successful because they're white?)
  11. It's already doubled in price....
  12. So it's for wiping your hands on your pants but NOT for scratching your balls? I hope they come with instructions...
  13. In my opinion, the presenter is missing the most important point. Yes, he did make a passing mention of hybrids, but not as a far more legitimate and sensible alternative to EV's. No matter how advanced EV technology becomes, an all electric vehicle is useless as transportation if there's hardly enough generating capacity on the national grid to meet the current demand at the same time power plants are being shut down and no new ones are being built. And this brings up and even more important question. Are we letting this country be run by people who are totally ignorant and short-sighted, or horribly corrupt? Or, do we just not care about things like that?
