Looks like we got the Old Skinny White Guy market covered now. I handle the OFWG segment myself. Reply Evan says: February 3, 2013 at 23:26 I’ve got the young skinny white guy covered. Reply William says: February 3, 2013 at 20:21 Welcome. We don’t always agree, but we really need one another. Reply Don says: February 3, 2013 at 20:29 Why Is Dan blogging and not watching the Super Bowl? Reply Kelly in GA says: February 3, 2013 at 21:35 If I remember correctly, Dan, like myself, is from Atlanta. We’re not too happy right now, at least not in football… Reply Dan Zimmerman says: February 3, 2013 at 22:19 No. Dan is from St. Louis. Until this year, Dan hasn’t been remotely happy about football since, oh, 2006. After this season, though, things seem to be looking up. He’s currently writing and keeping an eye on the blog while watching the game. And this post was scheduled last night. Nifty, huh? Reply Kelly in GA says: February 3, 2013 at 22:49 I guess I misread one post a while back. Sorry, Dan. Ralph says: February 3, 2013 at 23:44 Well, Dan, I guess you’ll be really excited when St. Louis finally gets a pro football team. Oh, wait . . . . Darrell says: February 4, 2013 at 09:41 Dan, I haven’t been happy since the strike of ’82. A few days after boot started … ended a bit after boot was over. I figured that if these guys were moaning about hundreds of thousands of dollars to play a game … they did not deserve any more of mine. I found other things to interest me. Taurus609 says: February 4, 2013 at 13:05 And the worst part Dan, is Kroenke’s probably going to move them in two years, now that the arbitrator has ruled in his favor. We suffer through all of the bad years, and just when they start getting good again, someone else will get them! Randy Drescher says: February 3, 2013 at 22:58 Hi Scott, good to see you here, Randy Reply AlphaGeek says: February 3, 2013 at 23:45 You rock, Scott. Reply g says: February 3, 2013 at 23:51 Thanks for speaking out, Scott! Reply Jonathan miller says: February 4, 2013 at 02:30 I am a gun owner. I keep my weapons in a locked safe at all times when not at the range. I have passed checks to have my firearms licence. I think people who want to walk around carrying pistols may often be suffering from sexual inadequacy. I wonder at 2nd amendments ‘absolutists’ who apparently can’t read the words ‘well regulated’. I can’t understand why anyone needs military-type weapons for any sporting purpose. I believe many of those leaving the most extreme comments here are delusional and some are profoundly mentally ill. Reply AlphaGeek says: February 4, 2013 at 04:59 Hello, Mr Troll. Nice of you to join us. I think people who want to walk around carrying pistols may often be suffering from sexual inadequacy. Please take a moment tomorrow to remove the seat belt from your car, disable any air bags, remove all fire extinguishers from your home, and deactivate any security systems. When you’ve done all that, please unlock all of the doors and windows on both your home and your car. Since you are clearly convinced that risk mitigation is a waste of time, I invite you to demonstrate for the rest of us how this should work in the real world. It would be great if you and your giant manly c*ck could check back in a few months to let us know how that works out for you. Police reports detailing the number of vehicle and home burglaries you’ve suffered would be interesting reading. Reply Ralph says: February 4, 2013 at 14:12 Hello, Mr Troll. Alpha, I think you misspelled “@ssh0le.” Reply AlphaGeek says: February 4, 2013 at 14:54 Damn iOS autocorrect. Missed that one. Jonathan miller says: February 4, 2013 at 16:21 You prove my point! In your own sad case, let’s add anger management issues. Reply AlphaGeek says: February 4, 2013 at 17:55 Heh. Anger management? Me? Clearly you’re new to these here parts, I’m not exactly a candidate for anger management counseling. Project much? You’re really going to have to step up your game if that’s the best ad hominem attack you can muster. And don’t think I didn’t notice how you completely avoided addressing the issues that I raised with your assertions. You’re no fun to play with, weaksauce troll. Run along, now. jwm says: February 4, 2013 at 11:50 JM, I agree with you about those extreme comments. Check out Mikeyb. Hmmmmmm, Great Lenin’s Ghost. I think your theory about mental illness and extreme statements has merit. Reply Jonathan miller says: February 4, 2013 at 16:22 Thanks, mate. There sure are a lot of loonies around here! Reply AlphaGeek says: February 4, 2013 at 17:57 I do not think JWM’s agreement means what you think it means. For the avoidance of doubt, you just stipulated that the most prominent gun-control advocates who frequent this site, specifically those who espouse opinions like yours, are mentally ill… My Name Is Bob says: February 5, 2013 at 16:12 Welcome!!!! Reply Billy says: February 6, 2013 at 04:55 I’m still wondering why these posts are getting tagged under “Irresponsible Gun Owner”… Reply lights powered by solar power for yards says: April 10, 2013 at 00:01 Gracioso js, paulo mq, hiruma lima ca, souza brito ar.
