Marion and I met over a glass fo wine at Tellers inadvertenly.

Neither of us experienced shock.

I take it back from the other thread. You can still see the old man jowls. They must have not been photoshopped out after all.

Still has the freakishly large hands though. I guess photoshop can't fix those.

Yup, and those hands probably still bother his thought process everyday because he knows he hasn't completely evolved from walking on his knuckles.

Katara I have to say you and a few others who troll about Marion's hands are pure comedy gold! How sad must your life be if you have to troll about are Marion's hands. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hmmm. I guess someone like you would miss the delicious irony of Marion squawking about the photoshopping of Michelle Obama's pictures while missing the photoshopping and cinematic license taken with his photos on a local newspaper.

Hardly a comparison to trolling a coupon blog to lecture about the evils of processed foods, especially when it has been pointed out numerous times that coupons exist for all the foods you seem to believe will somehow magically grant you instant good health.

Nice try. No internets here on this post for you, though.

C'mon, Marion. Keep on showing your true nature. Show everyone here your nastiness. Keep on with it. Go on.

In case you haven't noticed, people who rarely post are popping in to tell you what a sad old man you are.

Marion isn't my fav person but it's rude dog to bag on someone's looks. As for his "old man jowls" he's an old man for pete's sake so that's kind of typical (not trying to be a b marion, but u are kind of old). Either way, dislike him for his politics, sure, talk smack because of his looks, way lame.

Okay, lets have it out about the race thing. Marion, I have a bi-racial daughter. Tell me if you have a problem with that and if so why. Race is a serious matter and should be written about in that fashion and not trivialized I don't use photoshop, I use Gimp which is free and has the same features.

A humorous look at how Barack Obama sees all this...

http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/09/21/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry5327972.shtml

Addressing suggestions that recent criticism of his health care reform efforts has been grounded in racism, President Obama this afternoon quipped, "I think it's important to realize that I was actually black before the election."

Amy Heeter 5 years, 6 months ago

Yeah Oboy has said that a few times. The first time was funny after that not so much.

preebo 5 years, 6 months ago

Why Does Marion insist on using all three of President Obama's names (First, middle, and last)? Something tells me this is a veiled attempt at racism, or at the very least playing to the fear-mongering crowd. By repeating his middle name, conjuring images of a middle-eastern dictator. Dirty Pool! This was a tactic used quite regularly by Fox News and Republican Talking Heads (not to be confused with the 80's new wave group) when the campaign started to slip away late in the election season. It obviously didn't resonate with the American people. The recent election has bore this out.

My guess is, and one could easily go back to the record (if one exists) and review Marion's extensive comments regarding President George W. Bush. I would bet that he doesn't repeatedly refer to him as George Walker Bush. For that matter, I bet he didn't refer to former Presidents Clinton, Bush I, or Reagan as William Jefferson Clinton, George Herbert Walker Bush, or Ronald Wilson Reagan, respectively. So it would appear that this isn't equal measure Mr. Lynn.

tbaker 5 years, 6 months ago

Looking good Marion.

BTW - how is it you get a post yanked by the staff on a story about you?

Preebo - give it a rest. Something tells me you see racists behind every blade of grass. Remember what happened to the boy who cried wolf? Emphasizing the President's Muslim middle name may well be motivated by bigotry, but not racism. Wise up.

Very easily actually. Just make an over obvious sexual innuendo. You know, the typical attitude displayed frequently by Marion toward female posters. Er, uh, well I shouldn't claim that for certain. Maybe it was a male poster.

I do on occasion say his full name, Barack Hussein Obama out of pride. When he was elected my daughter pointed to the television and shouted, "blue! the west coast went blue. Finally someone with my skin color is in the White House!" I have never been so happy. I really appreciate having a president who is calm, steady, solid as a rock. When she was little she had a lot of trouble understanding why people who are brown are called black. Some say African-American though I assure you she does not have duel citizenship. Marian some things we just have to accept. From now on I would suggest if you don't like the mans policy just discuss the policy and why you don't like it and ignore certain comments.

Marion (Marion Lynn) says… “headdoctor (Anonymous) says… As far as the correlation goes, I am sure you know what I am referring to. If not, I am sure artichokeheart heart can fill you in with all her vast experience. I would explain in detail but I am not that stupid to fall for that piece of bait. I don't have the Kevlar underwear and vest protection from the LJW TOS that you seem to have.” Marion writes: So, you can try to start it but are unwilling to try to finish it? I have no idea what you are talking about and since you have been asked, it is incumbent on you to explain yourself. Why would you try to shift the responsibility of attempting to explain whatever it is that goes on in “YOUR” head to someone else? Lack the courage of your convictions? I thought so! Elephant skin boots? Animal hater! Why in the world do you think that I would even consider using the skin of such an endangered species as elephant? Figures that a “liberal” would though.


I only used elephant as an example and the last several years that those type of boots were made, the skin was from farm raised elephant not wild from poaching. My favorite shoes or I should say moccaians are made from wolf hide.

This coming from a person who hardly ever answers questions? I didn't answer your question because I was trying to maintain some level of decorum here. Obviously it did no good since the red ink ran anyway. Funny though, I don't know if they didn't like the TOS comment or if artichokeheart took offense to my comment that only used a point of fact that she has posted about many times.

headdoctor 5 years, 6 months ago

Marion, you keep getting it wrong. Just because someone doesn't agree with you, not a bigot or isn't into misogyny or racism doesn't automatically make them a liberal. I know this concept may be hard for you to grasp but if you try hard enough you might not make as many wrong assumptions about people.

Why do you insist on using the full name of our President when you did not do so with any other President of the United States?

If it is good enough for the swearing-in ceremony & the Chief Justice and makes it good enough for you, why doesn't that standard apply to all presidents?

Why just this one?

And the sexy Frugal Gourmet loses his show.this is the tame version. I had relatives up there this was a much bigger deal then this begins to say."His public career came to an end when two of his male assistant chefs brought charges of sexual harassment against him. Shortly thereafter, in 1998, seven men alleged that he had sexually assaulted them in the 1970s, when they worked for him.[3] Smith denied the accusations. He was taken off the air shortly afterward. Though he was never charged with a crime, he settled with the plaintiffs out of court, and never returned to the airwaves.[4] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Smith_(TV_personality)

Katara, did you model yourself after that Rutherford girl on leave it to beaver, the bossy bully one who didn't have any friends? Who tried to make herself feel more important by pointing out the flaws of others to everyone? Mrs. Landers will not give you a prize and she will tell you that you are not getting more friends this way. You just sound like the chubby girl with braids who will never be popular.

Why would anyone have a problem with his full name, Marion Horace Lynn, just Horace for short?

"What is “YOUR” problem with the full name of your Chosen One?"

No one has a problem with it. They have a problem with old, racist fools who are so deluded, and in so much denial, that it's possible that they themselves can't see it, and so blame everybody else around them for reacting to how racist they are.

Paraphrased example Horace says: "So, why do you have a problem with me writing blog after blog after blog after post after post after post since Obama was put forth as a candidate that almost All revolve around race? Why do you think that makes me racist? I think it makes You racist to mention that I'm really, obviously, totally preoccupied with race!"

KansasPerson 5 years, 6 months ago

My goodness, that plant is like the Audrey II. Has it ever asked/required you to feed it?

I am following along on all this chatter. My one question so far is for Marion: You said that Obama was sworn in as "some people's president." Does that mean that he's only the president of the people who voted for him, and the rest of the people are president-less? Is that in the Constitution somewhere?

Amy Heeter 5 years, 6 months ago

I notice that those who are so angered by Marion getting attention seem to feed into more than others. You guys might try reading 'Codependent No More'

preebo 5 years, 6 months ago

Marion,

You still did not answer my question. We know he was sworn in with his full name. All Presidents are sworn in using their full name.

My question to you, is why do you insist in using his full name, when you obviously did not refer to previous presidents using their full name. Something tells me, that if his name were Harrison or some other anglicized moniker you wouldn't be so quick to use it.

As far as your thanks to tbaker, for his "support" of your claims, you might want to reconsider. Rather than a racist, it appears he finds your comments to be more bigoted than racist.

"Emphasizing the President's Muslim middle name may well be motivated by bigotry, but not racism."

...either way, good work.

jaywalker 5 years, 6 months ago

Why in the world did this string get resuscitated and then take off? Never mind, it can't be pleasant to read.

preebo 5 years, 6 months ago

Marion,

Do you seriously think that your previous post of a few Presidents names (including their middle names) masks your initial intent? I know why you use his middle name. You know why you use his Muslim middle name. What I pose is that your comments do the opposite of what your posing for this picture intended... that is, detracts from any credibility you may have had.

As to your reference of "the Chosen One;" hate to break it to you... he was the chosen one. As a matter of fact, every President elected (except those chosen by the Supreme Court majority) are in effect, "the chosen one."

KansasPerson 5 years, 6 months ago

When I woke up this morning, I noticed that the first thing on my list was "Be cogent."

KansasPerson 5 years, 6 months ago

But seriously, isn't it true that if you look back in our history, nearly every U.S. president has had his detractors who say that he's driving our once-great country down the road of destruction?

I think if you look back far enough, you'll see them during every administration, no matter the party in charge! And yet we're still here.

And I hope we will continue to be for quite a long time to come.

I think that variety, as well as being the spice of life, is one of the fun things about politics. I have never lived at a time when everyone agreed on everything. And I think I prefer it that way. No, I KNOW I prefer it that way. Just imagining a U.S.A. where everyone is in lock-step gives me the shudders.

So I think it's perfectly all right for people to grumble, rail, or rant against whatever president or other elected representatives they want to. Whether I agree or not, I'm always deep-down thankful that we have that right.

I am just not sure about the constitutionality of claiming he's not YOUR president. Unless you secede from the Union (Ha! The Country of Marion! Well, it'd have cool cars anyway....) I think he is, and you just have to continue to exercise your right to complain about him!

jonas_opines 5 years, 6 months ago

"Just imagining a U.S.A. where everyone is in lock-step gives me the shudders."

Ya, China just prior to the Great Leap Forward in '59. No good result could come from it.

The endless detractors simply come from people who believe that their ideology (any ideology) can actually save a country. It's only when too many sign on to one that there is a problem.

I get a kick out of saying, our President, Barrack Hussein Obama with an emphasis on the middle name. Am I a racist? I can't think of anything he has done wrong so far, and no, I am not going to give a list of his accomplishments so far. Like he said, he has been in office nine months and has not solved world hunger or eliminated aids in Africa. Ha, ha.

preebo 5 years, 6 months ago

Fair enough, Marion.

He is "THE" President (of the United States of America) and not "your" President (of...Solitary state of Marion's delusions???) In any event, your fringe, and I do mean F R I N G E position (references to Marx, Stalin, and other Politburo regulars) is quite clear, which incidentally does wonders for your credibility. To world already has its Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh...

I am just relieved that your views are limited to this thread and not in any position of real influence in government (City, State, or Federal). That would be troublesome.

It doesn't matter if someone knows your real name and what you look like. No one takes partisan hack jobs seriously. No one who spends all day ranting about those on the opposite political spectrum has any credibility.

Regardless, it's not like your obsessive posting can be cited in an academic text or even used as authoratative source in a debate. Who gives a crap who you are? You're just another opinion.

In trying to prove your "credibility" you have only verified your megalomania.

WTF?!?!?!?!?!? Kealing, what's happening here? Am I missing the point of the joke? Is this really The Twilight Zone? Have the rules been suspended? Do you really know why this string has reappeared minus about a half trillion comments? Answers, please.

So, Roe, I am channeling my inner B.A. and you are channeling --everyone else. Want to make a bet as to who can go twenty-four hours and only write pleasant things about people?

I am truly amazed. I can't remember I last saw such a persistant train of thought...yeah, the nameless one was beyond rotten, but he wasn't evil incarnate...I mean, he DID inspire vociferous debate, and isn't that the real idea behind such blogs, threads, etc,, as this? I wondered for a while if "he" was just doing the "agent provocatuer" thing. Later on, upon reading the him-again-affiliated crap I realized he wasn't playin' around, he really IS/WAS frickin' nuts. But really, hasn't this dead horse been flogged quite enough? Kudos, Jonathan, for the obliteration of all the basically redundant threads...was getting boring, and I, like so many have SUCH a short attention span...I mean, c'mon, "free the blog", et al, was fun, but jeez, turn th' page...

"Escape The Fate" - My Apocalypse

There’s a place that I’ve found As far as I can see This place lies within The depths of my dreams In a garden surrounded By fire and trees Through the smoke a silhouette I can barely see There’s a man with an axe Standing in the rain

Looked me straight in the eyes This is what he had to say

Never fall asleep You won’t wake up Destroy the guillotine Before he does

I walk with shadows (you have to find a better way) I walk with shadows (the questions I will never say) Hiding from the gallows (they keep me safe and sound) So I walk with shadows (the ways of burning down this house)

To the right of the over sized and too big for the room tree, there is something round on the wall. Is it a mirror for self reflection, an Aztec Calender or what?

Anyone know?

Tom Miller 5 years, 2 months ago

can't really tell...doesn't really look like a mirror...my guess is MAYAN calendar...LOL!

ivalueamerica 5 years, 2 months ago

Duh, of course, I meant Mayan...thanks TMKATT
