We're all a bunch of dunces in here...

Except for USNavy... he's so smart, he joined the military while his country is at war and worries he may be sent to it.

In other words, you have no idea what I am talking about. That is okay. It seems like 90% of the world does not know jack about the economic collapse of 2008, clearly you included. It also seems that most prefer to spend their time on the Internet talking crap about the president instead of educating themselves about why our economy sucks. Go take an economics class little girl.


Nice to see you're back from your time out and have decided to become a better man because of it.
RC.com corrupted me. I can only be a better man on MP.com. Here is an interesting fact: for the first time ever, MP.com actually ranks higher in traffic than RC.com does. I think it is somewhere around 25,000 vs 20,600 unique visits per month. However, summit post PWNs everyone with an outlandish 80,000 UVs per month! And here I thought that website was for rc.com dropouts. I dont supposed this forum has anything to do with the UV shift.

Oh... you all missed it...

"Someone" went on a tirade, calling me names and I didnt have time to save it before the mods took it down. But don't worry, I read it.

Apparently I'm an overnight sensation, since my climbing skills went up from 10a to 15d so quickly. Because my ability to make an argument is directly linked to how hard I climb.

I guess people who have lives away from the crag, like jobs, families, hobbies, etc aren't deserving enough to post up in here. Not even in Scummunity because their grades just aren't up to par to compare opinions with a dick wart who only works part time.






*Mods: Note I haven't actually called any individual any names, you delete this post and it's you assuming that a particular loser user is a dick wart. It's just a generalization, I'm in no way insinuating that the person you are thinking about is a meadow-muffin-eating, self-sodomizing, socially-retarded, herp-crusted piece of trash.

It's amazing to learn about when the mods decide to show up.

In this thread? Weird. There must be moderating powers higher than mine. I can usually see hidden/recycled posts, and content of the posts deleted by users themselves, but I do not see anything here.

Wow...It sounds like you want Uncle Sam, your employer, to give you free medical, a place to live, teach you a skill, and give you $$$ for nothing in exchange... Yet complain about others doing it, or having to actually DO SOMETHING in exchange for all those benifits.

Sounds like a greedy unappreciative welfare recipient... And of the Republical type... Has hand out, complaining about the current prez and all them browns... Fueled by hyperbole and polemic. Are you related to PTC?

BTW... I was in the NAVY too, and pretty stupid too then concerning much, since I was young... Although not quite as stupid as you and not nearly as self-centered.

You should stop right there.... Not everyone gets those raises "like normal".

However, everyone did get the tax raise. In fact, some of our raised taxes are going toward paying USdouchebag's pay raise. So, STFU!
I'm sorry, would you like me to mail you a box of Kleenex so you can sob in your mother's arms? If you have a problem with it, bring it up with your boss. Everyone should get an annual raise to match inflation. But if you prefer, come take my place and get put on a waiting list to get shipped off to Afghanistan so some of the locals can use you as target practice. I would love to see how you would fair up in that situation. Do not downplay the hard work and dedication of US military's members. It is because of duckebags like me that you are free to talk shit. Otherwise you would be sucking Bin Laden's dick or, more likely, dead as Laden would have it.

Tee hee... If I were you I'd be more concered about a free trip to the DPRK than to a landlocked country like Afghanistan, Navy Boy.

Maybe you could suck Kim Jong Un's dick :)

FrownFrownFrown At least now I have a valid argument as to why I should be able to leave work 4% earlier.

I am with you. They should cut our taxes and stop wasting so much money. Guys like us who work our tail off don't get squat, while these lazy government workers get paid way too much.

Also, my boss is telling me I am going to have to get insurance. Wtf? More money coming out of my pocket making somebody else rich.

Work your tail off? You do realize that USNavy is out on a 6-month paid leave, travelling and climbing all over America on your tax dollar, right?
