I'd like to dedicate a song...
« on: September 13, 2008, 12:47:44 PM »

make your dedications to your friends or enemies...   

your true love.... 

your lost love(s)...

situations...

 or "just life in general"...

I will start with a dedication to the residents of Galveston TX who are suffering thru hurricane Ike this morning and probably for a long time in the future...

Galveston by Glen Campbell...   I'm sure some of the "youngsters" on here have never heard it...   A 1969 release that quickly became to many a "protest song" to the VietNam war...

in reality the song was written from the perspective of a Spanish American War soldier about his lady he left behind at home...

I really don't "remember" it that way either nosh...  

I guess 'cause we weren't out there protesting...  

This is where I found the reference...

and there were probably just as many that considered it a "tribute" to the soldiers of VietNam ;) ;) ;)

Chuck Berry, My ding a ling


Dedicated to the Republicans because I think they are “tools” and it’s related to that other post about Pam.  ;D
Logged
This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.
