slitter (urban dictionary)

(Scottish) "1. noun - person unable to eat or pour liquids without spilling half the contents down their front "

. . . . close enough David. All my sweatshirts are spaghetti stained too.

bevy 5 years, 5 months ago

LOL! Quit pickin' on poor Dave! It's good to see one of our own in the paper now and then.

Why was my comment deleted? All I did was provide a link to the poll asking the very same question as this OTS. What is wrong with you people?

Alex Parker 5 years, 5 months ago

Sometimes our system will label as spam, and automatically remove the comment. It's ironic, I know.

I will be voting against obamacare today. If we have to suffer 4 years of Mormonism to be rid of it, that's the price we pay. Socialism is a bigger enemy than Mormonism can possibly be.

DillonBarnes 5 years, 5 months ago

Exactly, you don't want Obamacare, you want Romneycare.

How are these guys different again?

Rex Hargis 5 years, 5 months ago

Didn't vote for a president-they're both politicians-but did vote for the 'locals'. I wish Pat Paulson were still alive so I could vote Stag Party (younger people, reference to the Smothers Brothers.)

Liberty275 5 years, 5 months ago

Can you imagine how screwed we'd be if that whackjob had won? We should be thankful for the systemic antisemitism in the democrat party and algore's choice of Lieberman for VP.

Voted a couple of hours ago. My polling place was arranged with voters on the east side of Iowa checking in on the west side of the room with the west siders on the east. No problem there, just thought it was amusing. And the workers kept calling out "Blue' or 'Orange.' Haven't figured out those references yet. Was gonna ask, but folks were a bit preoccupied.

Looked like a pretty good turnout!

Travis Black looks like that annoying liberal chick on MSNBC.

Terry Sexton 5 years, 5 months ago

You think so? I was thinkin' more Rachel Maddow, that "whipsmart voice of reason in the business that is cable news." Esquire magazine

bearded_gnome 5 years, 5 months ago

certainly going to vote this afternoon, me and the mrs.

happy to vote for love of country.

romney wasn't my first or even fourth choice among the republican candidates, but he's worlds better than obama.


please vote out obama, to get out obamacare, so that I can live a long life. yes, I am serious. obamacare truly threatens the lives of people who need quick access to specialists at times necessary to save our lives. I've needed quick access to specialists four times in my life so far. thank God they were there.

beatrice 5 years, 5 months ago

Obamacare does not do away with specialists, any more than Romneycare did.

And what of all those who will have access to health insurance who were denied it before, including those with pre-existing conditions previously denied insurance? Do their lives mean nothing?

oldbaldguy 5 years, 5 months ago

Always proud to vote, did this morning on the way to the office.

classclown 5 years, 5 months ago


Actually six... but who's counting.

Maybe that's why his side always loses. :Þ~

There are three kinds of people in this world. Those that can count and those that can't.

budwhysir 5 years, 5 months ago

what about those that are counting on learning to count, that would make only 2 wouldnt it?

bearded_gnome 5 years, 5 months ago

There you go rc, getting an early jump on your excuses and false claims. Well done.

I wonder who nanny Karen was told to vote for?

beatrice 5 years, 5 months ago

I'm pretty sure that when someone approaches you to answer a question for "On the Street," you can just walk away without answering. Like gay marriage, it isn't mandatory. If someone gives an outrageous response knowing that it has the possibility of being published, it deserves to be discussed with no specific time limit.

I stand up against her views on feminism and the rights of women, but at least I didn't condescend by calling her "that poor lady."

beatrice 5 years, 5 months ago

What, no respect for my opinion of her opinion? Trying to bully me to stay quiet?

I respect her right to her opinion. The opinion itself, however, not so much. Just because someone has the freedom to say anything they choose is not reason to respect the actual comments. Had someone on the OTS been a white supremacist and spouted racist views, rather than sexist views, would you still "respect" that opinion?

You have a wonderful day as well.

beatrice 5 years, 5 months ago

Who is saying she doesn't have a right to express her opinion? All I am seeing is people trying to tell me I shouldn't speak my response.

bevy 5 years, 5 months ago

Voted, had to show my ID even though I've known the lady behind the table since I was born. Ya know what - didn't bother me a bit! I, like many posters above, will be glad when this is over. I don't feel too optimistic about a final result in less than a couple of weeks, though.

"My side will lose in KS. But, KS only has 7 votes so whatever....."

What an idiot. I bet there are more than 7 people in the state of Kansas.

budwhysir 5 years, 5 months ago

yeah but dont you have to have a valid DL to vote???

Eddie_Haskell 5 years, 5 months ago

"My side".

Definitely part of the problem. Also, there is no such thing as Obamacare and there is no Tea Party.

Terry Sexton 5 years, 5 months ago

If I were to give a 'thumbs up' to the same regular poster on every one of his/her comments, would that be voting or stalking?

Eddie_Haskell 5 years, 5 months ago

Electoral College= Your vote doesn't matter.

Voting the Party line= Political Bigotry

Liberty275 5 years, 5 months ago

That's a crappy deal, having to leave if your candidate loses. How about this instead: if your candidate wins, Agno has to like all your posts for a month, or vice versa. We don't need to be rid of either of you.

Why was his post deleted?

Eddie_Haskell 5 years, 5 months ago

The New Black Panthers. That's a good one. Kind of like those cartoony Latino and Asian gangs that started popping up on the West Coast in the 90's. MSG-13! Ooooh, scary!

Flap Doodle 5 years, 5 months ago

Your stalking is getting more sophisticated, ag.
