The "Two Guns" thread is one of the best examples of trolling. Five words in the
subject, three in the post, no replies by the OP, 432 posts total. Awesomeness.

That is one hell of an interesting quote. I didn't believe it, so I
looked it up. The book is called "War Is a Racket", published in 1935.

Now we've had two smugly self-congratulatory posts from you to
complain about the length of my reply to the French scumbag Sandy, but
you haven't contributed anything at all to the conversation, merely a
complaint about the form of it. Do you have any content to add, Rico?
Do you indeed have any intrinsic value? Or is this creepy whining the
totality of Rico? Why should I care shit what a useless person like
you thinks?

Gee, Frankie-boy, has it really taken you two years since I put you
down in that motor-pacing thread to crawl out of your shell and write
to me again? So nice to hear from you every few years.

Are you planning to contribute anything to the content of this thread,
which is on the arrogance of the French? Or will you just whine that
my post dissecting Sandy like a frog on the lab bench was too long for
your soundbite intelligence?

Yeah, that "news@suddenlink" dude is a real tough guy, and a patriot
too. That's why he stands ready to defend America against Americans
who think it's our duty to behave better than international
psychopaths.

No wonder we had a 100 Years long war. No wonder we had two World
Wars. No wonder Europe has been divided for 45 years in the more
recent memory. Old disagreements are still prevalent to some. And if
the French are so evil, why does the English language contain so many
Gallic expressions? Even over here, in the US, French bashing is very
common for some strange and unknown reason.

I have a Silver from my one and only 'cross race, at Texas States
Cyclocross. My buddy Jack and I were the only Vets entered; I got a
flat and he got the Gold.
We just stopped by to watch (after 60 miles or more done that day) and
I noticed there were no greyhairs running around. Our licenses and
money came flying out.

Medals were cool, but best was getting schooled by a real Euro pro
'crosser (2x TdF entrant and I think he finished both) on how to get
down a steep little drop with a LH 90deg turn at the bottom, slimy mud
abounding. I was standing next to the course de-clogging my crit bike
(ha ha) and "if he can do it, so can I" and then it turned into fun.

Furthermore, "if you don't enter, you can't get a prize". And if few
or no others enter? "The first race is to the start line", you know?

We had free donuts after and I have a picture.

It could be worse- they could be questioning your interest in 19 year
old boys instead. I don't think they should be, but I'm just sayin...

Some of us are noticing your weird fascination with 19-yr old boys whose
first name starts with T, contains a Y, and ends with R. If this gets
out generally, a lot of guys will start posting as Toyoter, Tuyveker, and
so forth. But don't worry, your secret is safe with me.

I am positive the people at ggl can retrieve whatever they want
whenever they want at light speed. They deliberately nobbled
the usenet archive search for peons.

Dumbass,

You're entitled to your own wrong opinion.

The definitive work on "Fred" is not from wikipedia, but
by Gianni Vertool in RBR:

I have to believe that Gianni would make a good coach. I've read that
post before, but just re-reading it now for fun had me subconsciously
vowing to become BetterSmarterHarder, (etc).

Before, I tried to put some abstracted distance between my analysis and

But getting Bruce's top-10 out of it was worthwhile.

Legal aid clinics to benefit HIV positive persons in 16 districts

CHENNAI, February 10, 2010 . With 11 more legal aid clinics for the HIV infected to come up in the State on Wednesday, positive persons in 16 districts of the State will be served by free legal services and counselling.

The districts in which one clinic each will be inaugurated on Wednesday are Chennai, Dharmapuri, Villupuram, Krishnagiri, Salem, Tiruchi, Tirupur, Karur, Theni, Tuticorin and Kanyakumari.

To be set up by the Tamil Nadu State AIDS Control Authority in association with the Tamil Nadu Legal Services Authority, the centres will be manned by an advocate and counsellor appointed by the latter. Each clinic will be set up at a cost of Rs.2 lakh, received as funding from the National AIDS Control Organisation.

The clinics are meant to directly address issues of people living with HIV/AIDS, especially widows, destitute women and children, with sensitivity. They are a step in the direction of providing easy access to legal services wherever anyone has been wronged, or there is a denial of services, according to the policy note.

"Completely free services will be provided at these clinics. There has been a great demand from the districts for such clinics, especially since the first five clinics were able to redress the grievances of people who were infected with HIV and could not afford legal services," S. Vijayakumar, Project Director, TANSACS, said. Mostly, cases concerning property disputes, alimony and inter-familial disputes come up at the clinics.

So far, the five clinics already set up in Namakkal, Dindigul, Madurai, Cuddalore and Tirunelveli districts have received a total of 1,913 non-legal and 432 legal petitions. Of these, 270 legal petitions and 1,011 non-legal cases have been settled, according to official figures. A substantial percentage of the clients at the legal aid were women. In several instances, disputes have been settled at the mere instance of the counsellor, even before taking the legal route, according to officials.

Dear all,

GSNP+ (Gujarat State Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS) is very please to announce it has received permission from the Government of Gujarat's Social Justice and Empowerment Department to establish two Special Caring Homes for Orphan children living with HIV. GSNP+ will have direct responsibility for operation and administration of the two sites at Surat and Gandhinagar.

Through sustained efforts the Gujarat government has been sensitized to the special needs of orphan children and recognized the importance of this issue. The efforts of GSACS (Gujarat State AIDS Control Society) were also instrumental in securing funding for this initiative. Both recognize the positive changes possible in the futures of the children who will benefit from the Special Caring Homes.

The two Special Caring Homes will be established in Surat and Gandhinagar. In Surat, Reliance Industries will participate in a public, private partnership through the allocation of land, construction of the facility and some operating funds. GSNP+ has had an ongoing relationship with Reliance Industries and look forward to its expansion through this project.

GSNP+ would like to thank the Government of Gujarat, GSACS and Reliance Industries in brightening the future of very special children.

With Regards,

Irfan Bilakhiya

State Coordinator,
GSNP+, Surat (Gujarat)

Dumby -

I said, "The useage of Fred has varied widely ..." You're using it
differently than I am. My Freds aren't pro's.

Or see this one - it's got two definitions, basically yours and mine.

While I'm generally in agreement with you in this thread, Jay, the
above is crap. It was WW1 that drew those middle-Eastern borders.

Historically, if you want to point fingers for border drawing, I'm
afraid that the Americans and the CIA in particular are smack bang in
the bullseye. Did you for instance know that Allen Dulles, who was
later the head of the CIA, at the Paris peace conference on Secretary
Lansing's party, drew the borders of what would become Czechoslovakia
because he was the only one who knew where Bohemia etc were? Of course
I don't need to remind you that WW2 was fought over the borders drawn
by Lansing's bright young men, who were later leaders in the OSS and
then the CIA (which in my opinion is unfairly blamed for a lot of crap
they didn't do).

'Top that'? Nobody can. The Marshall Plan was the greatest
humanitarian and charitable project ever. It has every claim to become
a religion; the only reason it hasn't is because the French are
ingrates who bite the hand that feeds them. That is therefore an
entirely appropriate discussion to have in a thread in which a
disgusting surrender-froggie like Sandy once more displays his lack of
moral fibre.

Heh-heh. Papa Doc will rise from the grave to lead his people to the
promised land. Baby Doc, a little worse for wear (didn't he get his at
the round end of Thompson -- those things fire .50 slow-tumbling
bullets that really rip up the victim) will jig in front of the rest
of the zombies from the Ton Ton Macoute, and greatness and sweetness
will return to Haitian-style democracy! And Sandy will have many
opportunities to blame the Americans for *not* acting...

I had Jerry Lewis in there, but he's a cult figure in France where he
is considered a great movie director, so I scratched Jerry Lewis
because the surrender-froggie Sandy would get it, and there's no point
in making it easy for slime to understand how one undermines it. I
also thought but only briefly of replacing one of my exclamations with
the Jerry Lee Lewis reference 'Great balls of fire!' but scratched
that as well as because so many fat French boys like Sandy are closet
lovers of everything American, especially rock'n'roll, jazz, and cars;
they also pine after blondly pigtailed bobby-soxers but that's another
whole story.

Still, you're right, a damned pity to leave off Jerry Lewis. While
we're talking abut him, I might just point out that some of Jerry
Lewis's finest work as an actor came late in his career in television
when he played a clothing manufacturer and distraught father in the
series 'Wiseguy' by the Canadian writer and producer Stephen J Cannell
that starred Ken Wahl. Ron Silver and Stanley Tucci, both very strong
character actors, were also in that set, and Jerry Lewis gave them a
masterclass.

"The Fighting Quaker", eh. Thirty-three years and four months is a
long time to get religion and start repenting. That's the thing about
old sinners, that they have had so long to enjoy their sins.

Sounds more like truth-telling than insult to me.

If you don't think Americans are mostly a bunch of ignorant oafs, you
haven't been paying attention (or haven't left the country for a basis
of comparison). And I say this as a proud and faithful American. I
strongly believe that we are good in our hearts, but I know from
observation that overall we are not a force for good.

Bullshit, McCoy, AKA "Jute." I retired from arguing with you in the
same way Albert Einstein would retire from arguing with Homer Simpson.

To be clear: I do occasionally give you another chance, by skimming
what you write. On occasion, I've even answered your questions, when
you've asked meaningful ones.

But your usual egotistical blather would be boring even if it were
brief. Unfortunately, it never seems to be brief.

This is exactly what I am saying. Corporations should have their own
armies and not use our Marines unless they are willing to pay temp
agency rates.

Note that corporate invasions present staggering branding
opportunities. We could have the United Exxon Emirates or the Peoples
Republic of Walmartia.
Hey, the French invasion of Mexico was just a foreclosure action. I
see no problem with foreclosing on collateral, even if the collateral
is a country. A loan is a loan. The French should have rebranded
Mexico as "Mexico brought to you by France" or Mexifrance or
Francico.-- Jay Beattie.

I was thinking about borders drawn in the Middle East by the British
at various times. The British created countries and gave them to
families. Hey, I want a country! Beattie America -- a small, inner-
city country with a totalitarian leader and no oil (I retired my oil
tank and connected to gas). Regrettably, I am being occupied by the
United States.

The Marshall plan was really the Truman plan, but nonetheless,
Marshall was a great man, and everybody seems to agree on that --
regardless of party affiliation. His decisions always seemed to be
right, although he couldn't get elected dog catcher if he were alive
today because of his views on Israel. -- Jay Beattie.

I've only visited CHF a couple of time and had a look in a few real

computer to get a link and not found it that way but have when going through a more
conventional search (i.e. remembering the thread title, etc).
