I can. Back in my old hometown in the northeastern part of the Land of Obama, they've had several cemetery/crematoria scandals where bodies were never buried/cremated, or where the "administrators" in overcrowded or nearly full cemeteries were unearthing caskets and dumping them (and their contents)to make way for new burial plot "sales." Incredible.
I guess since in our society we're constantly redefining things, the new definition of "at rest in perpetuity" means until there's no more room in the cemetery's "friendly confines" or when there's a need for the graveyard owners to make a few more bucks.
I do not agree with defiling a grave but I will point out in Europe where space is limited, the dead occupy the grave for about 70 years (laws differs with each county) and then everything is unearthed to make way for the recently deceased.
Understood. But here they are still selling the services and the "perpetuity," and IMHO should do so with absolute integrity. But I guess since the unscrupulous are everywhere else, we shouldn't expect the "corporal afterlife industry" to be any different.
Liberals robbing graves....what will they think of next? But I agree Jimmy - and I can see it. Here's the scenario:
No burial plots for the millions of unemployed and those otherwise unable to finance their own burials. So the liberals come up with a plan to "sequester" old (i.e., currently occupied) grave sites. They also call this "recycling" in an attempt to tie it in to their plan to "go green" in the corporal afterlife industry. Al Gore is spearheading the movement now that his invention of the Internet is complete. (In fact, I think there was some hidden pork in the recent CR which gave a 500 million dollar grant to initiate the plan to a new entry in the business - a company called "Down and Dirty." They were formerly called "Solyndra," before they went belly-up in the solar cell business.)
Not bad, Sebe. Rather well done I might say. I can see how small minds are easily amused by it. I just thought all the tiny brains were busy attending Clemson University.
Hi Jimmy: Paraphrasing what Sharp, Inc. used to say:
From small minds come small products.
Clempson? Yes - I guess that what the Gamecocks might say. Speaking of small - that 's the percentage I'm showing now on most of my brackets. Harvard? LaSalle? Florida Gulf Coast? Give me a break.
Just need a little clarification here, Sebeoreeno. You B running interference for tweedle dum and tweedle dee now or have you already been installed as their designated hitter (DH)?
Being an independend and all, that sort of thing would be going agin the grain for you, would it not?
You see: I see tweedle dee and tweedle dum as being the krill from which I am to feed upon.
Being independent means calling 'em as I see 'em, no? My opinions on the Dems are well established here. No matter how it's sliced, the Dems ARE the designated "liberals" when it comes to comparing them to the GOP. As to your "feeding" habits, that's your business. But per the sympathies of my chosen avatar - although he "stuck his neck out for "nobody" - he did tend to pull for the underdog(s).
On a serious note I'm afraid that we are seeing the results of decades of ever declining morals as well as values.
The other blog above about the shooting of the baby in Brunswick reflects more of the same.
My Grandson paid me a visit yesterday and as I watched him drive out of my yard I could not help but feel sorry for him and his generation as we are leaving a terrible world for them.
Yes Tot. It is as you say. We are all headed to Hell on an express elevator. The neighborhood surely has changed since the Beave left the neighborhood hasn't it? Soon it will be raining frogs, famine and pestilence will reign, locusts will be devouring our children, mother Earth will rise up and shake us off its surface like a soaking wet dog shaking off water. All one has to do is look out the window and see that Hinesville and where you live is becoming a viciously overcrowed place where almost everybody seems vaguely happy, except for the ones, like you Tot, who know in their hearts what is missing...And being driven slowly and quietly into the kind of terminal craziness that comes with finally understanding that the one thing you want is not there. Missing. Back ordered. No Tengo. Vaya con Dios. Grow up! SMall is better. take what you can get.
Yes Tot. You have indeed nailed it once again. We are all now headed down that long black chute where ugliness rolls over you every 10 or 16 minutes like waves of boiling asphalt and poison scum. Followed by sergeants and lawyers and warrant officers - home boy wanna bees - and crooked cops waving rule books. You Tot, and the rest of us, are headed for a world where nobody laughs and everybody lies and the days drag by like dead animals and the nights are filled with screams of the doomed coming up thru the air shaft along with white cockroaches and red stingworms full of AIDS and bursts of foul gas with no sunrise and the morning streets full of preachers begging for money and fondling themselves with gangs of young fat boys traling after them.
This is the world that is awaiting you and your off spring, Tot. And, as you so righteously already know....The Liberals did it.
I hope your card reflects that we are still copacetic (especially since my "scenario" WAS an attempt at humor).
My purpose is to not have any of my copacetic pals fall victim to friendly fire; nor wander into my cross-hairs. It is my unfortunate being that I am cursed with an affinity for shooting fish in a barrell.
We are ok, Sebe.
Sebe, I do not write what I do because i am smart. I am NOT. One must talk to me as if talking to a small child....or say a... Golden Retriever.
I have no idea what those geometric symbols above mean.
Feel free to utilize Personal messages if want. I will respond.
They are called "emoticons" (as in emote and icon combined. Some are best viewed sideways - as in the winky/smiley one I used above:
The other symbol - \m/ - supposedly means "rock on." The first time I ever saw them used was here actually by somebody - I don't remember who it was. They used the "rock on" symbol; I googled it; and I learned about "emoticons." Basically,they are another form of online "shorthand."
There are even emoticons for "famous" people. This one is supposed to signify Ronald Reagan:
(remember to turn your head - or your screen - sideways to "see" the effect.)
Yes, Tot. Acquiring ones GED exposes one to a vast array of intellectual witticisms. I am enthralled by your insight. Might you share more with me and the others of your learned perspective?
JM you (just as Murrelet was) are a gifted writer.
To bad that you revel in posting disgusting insults upon those of different points of view.
You are almost single handedly stiffiling this Coastal Courier blog site.
Have you not noticed the slow down in participation on this medium?
I seek not to stifle, Tot. Nor lay blame to anything or anybody unless a reckless post begs for commentary. One like you posted about the horror of the Newtown shootings then coming here to lay that particualr tradgedy on my doorstep and the entire Liberal community. My God, what an insulting statement!!!
I will abide by the webmeister's rules. I do not know who died and made you, Tot, the one who is to quantify reasons for activity or perceived lack thereof, regarding this blog site.
You take yourself waaaaaay toooo seriously Tot. And as long as you and Tweedle Dee post your right wing "observances" I plan on being here to comment upon them.
You might not seek to stifle but your style has a tendency to do exactly that in my opinion.
Case in point.
Some months ago the writer from Midway Mr Calderone entered upon this site and would have been a good addition.
He has written a number of well done articles in the hard copy of the Courier.
He would have been an able contributor to this site.
Within days of his first few pieces (all of which were interesting to some of us) contributed to this site you brutally attacked him the messenger while you failed to address the message.
You single handedly drove him away.
That was a lose to some of us.
So now Tot, you are a psychiatrist? You're Lenny's mentor, are you? I have exchanged emails with Mr. Calderone before and have responded publicly in the Courier to his columns in which I ALWAYS SIGN MY NAME. When I wrote for the Courier from 1995-1999 I was subjected to some of the hottest criticism one can receive. I even had a Courier STAFF member, named Steve Scholar, openly rebut and attempt to ridicule me. It's called: TAKING YOUR LUMPS, Tot. Some can take it and some cannot. You and Lenny seem to have much in common so it is not surprising that you mourn his retreat from these pages. In case you haven't noticed I too, get verbally shot at from time to time. It is called FREE SPEECH, TOT!!!
Tot, if you are going to write something for public consumtion then you best be prepared for the fact that you probably are not going to please everybody and criticism can and will come your way.
I am sorry that you seem unable to meet Tit for Tat, Tot. :) (three T's in row) But, as one of our best Presidents ever had to say: If you can't take the heat, then stay out of the kitchen.
Personally, I think you Tot, are the reckless one with your blanket blame game and inabilty to master specificity of issues. I think you should go and join Lenny under the rock. Then the two of you right wing conservatives can make happy with each other.
In the meantime, Tot, there exists little or no chance that you will be rid of me on these pages or in the Courier or the Savannah Morning News(20 month consecutive run with those fellas.) So deal with it and shut up.
One more thing Tot, IF I "had brutally attacked him..." as you say, then the webmeister would have gotten my attention as he has done in the past. What you see as an attack in my words, is nothing more than simple give and take or the Webmeister would kick me out of here or fire a shot across my bow. And Tot, he will do that as I have been fired by him not once but twice. I know the rules here and how to play within them.
I am sorry that you cannot come to terms with that Tot. You might would become a better writer just learning to deal with criticism, even tho harsh at times. It can add cement to your, so far anonymouos, spine.
Why not start by filling in your profile? Stand up publicly for your beliefs Tot and quit worrying about me.
I am aware that you JM "know the rules here and how to play within them"
I remember what you did to Bucky Keel
He said that even your own brother Will apologized to him and said that you are sick.
I know that you are sick and I'm sorry to have to say that. I'm sorry that you are sick.
Yes, I know Tot...I am the sick one and YOU are the sane one, right? Bringin' my family into the fray are you? I do not think my brother is going to appreciate you doing that. And if you are identifying Lucky Peel with the individual you note above...so be it.
People get what they deserve sometimes, Tot. You have not walked in my shoes, Tot, and you have absolute no credibilty whatsoever due to your penchant for calling others out while hiding behind your masked identity.
You are awash in cowardice and self-righteous certainty Tot. You need to stop your whining and stop trying to be an analytical sage, because you are not one Tot.
You are a reckless right wing conservative buffoon. Try focusing that laser beam perspective of yours on yourself and tell me what you find there.
Inquiring minds want to know, Tot.
You are playing dirty now, Tot. You have no right naming ANY members of my family while you hide behind your anonymous curtain. You are treading where you have no right to in your efforts to get at me.
What is transpiring here is between you and me. No one else.
Identify yourself or remove the comment about my brother.
ROFLMAO... Tot finally got as mean as you JM. Let this be a lesson JM, being a bully always comes back and bites you in the a$$. You put your name and family name out there... IMHO Tot said nothing bad at all about your brother.
JM the spoof you did on Bucky Keel was mean and humiliating at best.
Prior to your doing that to him he had been a great source of insight into the happenings in operation of our local school system.
You did that by the reverse of my being anonymous when you craftily wrote a story about Bucky Keel and changed the name to Lucky Peel.
The letters to the editor submitted by Bucky Keel were meaningful and informative.
After your humiliating and mean spirited abuse of his individual person he ceased to contribute to the editorial page of the courier.
After your humiliating and mean spirited abuse of his individual person Mr. Calderone ceased to contribute to this site.
You sidetracked this blog string and I have had my fill of you and your fowl mouthed attacks on the person of TOT whom you do not even know.
You are the buffoon for attacking the person of one who is anonymous participants on this site.
You don't respond to the message you attack the messenger.
You are, as Dr Carson says, are like a third grader.
You are not going to run me off.
Leave me alone and I'll do likewise.
Attack TOT and he/she will respond in kind.
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum at their finest. I got to let you know something Tot and Sheran: neither of you have a message and both of you are mask wearing klan like mud-slingers. Once I learn your identities I assure you that they will become available to the public.
You both have me shaking in my boots and curled up in a fetal position. :( I am so very sad now that you both have put me in my place that I no longer plan to eat any food and starve myself to death.
Your deft command of the written word has forced me to retreat under my bed where I will stay until the end. Alone, famished, and humiliated where I will lapse into delerium dreaming of stories yet to be written about nebulous characters called Snot and She-Run.
Any resemblance to real people in my stories will be purely coincidental and unintended.
And since there is now blood in the water, so to speak, Snot....when I discern who you are, and you better believe I can and will find out, I am going to bring YOUR family into the fray; wife, sister, brother, children,your pets, your grandchildren... all will be fair game now that you have crossed the line. Same for you Sheran.
It is easy to sling mud and rocks while wearing a disguise as you two do and not take any personal responsibility for your actions. But a Reckoning is coming Snot, and it is going to be a turkey shoot par excellence. And it will be served up cold.
Lets see what maybe we should start wid: Groovers, Smiley, Wells, Smiths, Todds, Trohas, Carters, Collins, to name just a few.
The revealing is a comin' Tot. And it ain't gonna be pretty for ya.
I know you are a local Snot. You remember Delargy B.I. football, so that gives me insight and a thread. You are a tad older than me. Though you dropped out of highschool your picture was taken at school before turning 16. Unless you were absent when Mr. Elam came and took all of our pictures, I should be able to find your pic in one of the student annuals with your name next to it....
I am starting with the 1959 Lions Den Annual since it included everybody at BI, highschool thru elementary. You are in there somewhere Tot as well as maybe a more recent year since you could not drop out until you were 16 y\o.
Then I will cull all the boys from the pics and post 'em on my board. Then determine how many are still local, moved away or dead.
You see the process here Snot? It's just a matter of time. I also, just to make it interesting to others, offer up say ... I don't know....a $500.00 bounty to anyone that can provide me with your identity with the money being donated to a charity of their choosing or to keep if they like.
Either way it goes...somethins' gonna give!
Gooooood Morning, Snot. Got my list down to seven!!!!
BTW, have you noticed how much the activity on this here blog site has increased since you left?
