    Happy Anniversary Comrade!

    Thanks to an excess of low-info voters, your place in the hearts and minds of the ‘rich’ is secure for another four years.

    Personally, I wish you could just do agitprop as an amusing diversion, instead of desperately needed in-your-face depictions of our collective rejection against progs everywhere.

    Fur… (awkward silence…) Well, truth is, You just don’t love me like ya used to. It’s ok. I still love ya anyway. (rolls eyes and mumbles under breath)
    AdminGirl… It’s YOUR party. You can cry if you want to…

    Moe, How in the world did you remember that? Surely you must’ve copied that thread and saved it to a file so you’d have…ooohhhhhh… (smacks myself in head) R-Kives… Man if my brain gets any slower, I’m gonna end up a Democrat pretty soon!!!

    Now, to the burning questions!
    What does everybody mean by, “The 1st blog I come to…” or “First stop of the day…”, or “one of my favorite sites to…” ? What the heck are ya’ll talking about? Do you mean to tell me that there is more than one of these “blog” thingies on the intertubes? That there are “other” anomolies like this actually IN-Existence already? Yeah Right! Don’t let your tinfoil hats slip there Mr Noory!!! They’re … OUT THERE…! LMAO! Crazy Bastas! Listen closely people, IOWNTHEWORLD.COM is THE ONLY site on this silly little Innerweb thing other than those pages that companies put up to help sell their products! If yall are “going” to some other “blogs” or something to look for food or humor or porn and stuff, Ya better be careful cause you could get lost out there messing around and next thing you know you’re stuck in the bottom of a well in Al Gore’s basement, naked and hairless, and forced to “pet his poodle” while he stand over you dressed in a Kimono and Pagan Temple Prostitute makeup, master baitin on to a tiny globe that has America and Israel marked out with red lipstick!!!

    I was trying to remember how I found IOTW, and when I started coming here… and then it hit me, I was already here when y’all showed up and started lollygagging and nosing all around my barns and loafing in the field out there like it won’t nothin to it at all. I’m pert near positive I seen that Hippy-lookin thing, and the fella what they call “Pinky” or “Winky” or Blinky hell I don’t know what they call the dang prevert… They had snuck up inside the hen house, and I heard the hens making the oddest racket ya ever heard, (I don’t even want to know!) but I looked out there and it looked like the dang hen-house was on fire they was so much smoke rolling out of every crack and crevice!!!
    Yep, I remember when yall showed up here lookin like a bunch of 1st Class Democrat tools…
    I reckon yall turned out alright in spite of yourselves. Just needed a little straightening out and growin up. I wish you would tell all them weirdos that blow in and out of here day and night to “visit”, to STAY OUT O’ THE DANG HEN HOUSE!!! Folks eat them eggs. I shudder to think what would happen if we left ‘em in there and let ‘em hatch!!! I’m pretty sure that’s how Harry Reid was born/hatched back in the 20s or 30s…

    “youtube CH 47 water landing.” Frilliant.
    At the time, 2009, there were some girlymen on the talk shows saying that Military personnel were limited in their ability and sort of stupid. They still think that way. But fuckem!
