Missing Peter Bocking

"I wish I could have heard him play guitar.
I wish he could have heard how he made me laugh."



BTW,In general it should be stated emphatically and ofeten that newspapers are commercial enterprizes,not public amenities, all of them ,from the Editor in Chief to the doorman are in it for the money.

"They should be hunted down and punished to the full extent of the law - but our system of justice has due process protections so that we actually punish the guilty -"

This is classic,these people are armed to the teeth,they are not running they are coming for you,they glorify death,they blow themselves up rather than surrender,this isn't a law and order issue, it is war.You need to understand Texas Taqiya,that it isn't a matter of punishing the guilty,it is about stopping terrorism,dead.

Why on earth did Krugman not note the significance of the number 88 being exactly 13 more than the number of trombones needed to lead the "Big Parade". Thirteen is itself a highly significant mystical prime number.Coincidence? I think not!

Honoring Peter Bocking

Here is the third installment of PUK comments from JustOne Minute.

Sure, a picture may be worth a thousand words,
but ten words from PUK is about the same.



Leftism is a faith,if you discuss any of the catastrophic socialist experiments,where millions perished,the retort will be,"That wasn't socialism,real socialism hasn't been tried yet",a direct analogy to the question,"Why haven't my prayers been answered?"..."Because you didn't pray hard enough,sincerely enough or in the right way,go back and try again".

It is our solemn duty to subject them to derision,if they didn't want to be insulted they wouldn't be liberals.Look at Dementedleo for example,locked away with the ointment, only a laptop,the NYT and her piles for company,what kind of life is that for a cretin? Here she can individuate herself before the mocking multitudes,teeming millions of internet users intimately aquainted with her personal problems.It is a kindness,otherwise she would be on Jerry Springer,images of her...well images, would be beamed across the world,people would recognise her in the street,"How are the haemorrhoids?" they would cry,much better this way.Cruel to be kind.

There is an obligatory one weeks trained and users must practice every day.Please note users are breathalised and blood tests taken at regular intervals.This is a necessary precaution as careless usage is somewhat more dangerous to your own side than the enemy.
