You (meaning all of my faithful readers) will remember this post about why I was not overly impressed with George Bush in the last debate.

There was a bit of friendly fire between Troy and I. He has not yet come to his senses and embraced Blogger totally so he still posts anonymously. We are friends so I accept that he is a Republican but still like him. He calls me a hippy liberal. I am okay with this. I have also, on more than one occasion, hugged a tree.

I am wondering if this comment was left by Troy (or, perhaps Donovan? See? Some of my friends are Republicans). Usually he leaves his name at the end but maybe he forgot this time. Here’s the comment:

“Well, you haven’t convinced me that George Bush is an idiot.You have convinced me, quite elegantly, that someone else is…You.”

I’m assuming it’s from one of my friends and we’ll laugh about it later because, if I am anything, it is certainly elegant.

But if you are not one of my friends, Anonymous, if you stumbled onto my blog and thought “Oh, I don’t like this person’s blog, I must comment” can I just make a suggestion? How about you don’t next time? If I read someone’s blog and I don’t like their political views, I don’t read their blog anymore.

Oh, and just for the record, Anonymous, I’m not trying to convince you of anything. You do what you have to do. If that includes voting for a man who led us into war through deception and thinks that homosexual marriage would make heterosexual marriage less sacred (yeah, ’cause the institution of marriage is just so holy what with all the frickin’ divorce!), then go for it. It’s your right. But at least have the guts to leave your name.

Hello,If the person who called you an idiot is out there reading this, then I suggest that person get a frickin’ life!If it is Troy or Donovan, I imagine it was in jest, but I don’t see either of them calling you an idiot for having beliefs. This country is built on the premise that people can have different view points. You posted on YOUR BLOG your opinion of our commander-in-chief and that is completely fine. It’s YOUR BLOG!I personally agree with you, I dislike the president’s actions over the last four years. Does that mean I think people are stupid just for liking him? No. Obviously I don’t. Troy and Donovan are two of the smartest men I’ve EVER met. They just have different viewpoints.I am not strictly liberal or strictly conservative. I have strong beliefs about one issue (and it’s not even the war) and this is why I will be voting Democratic in this election.Oh, I’m on a vant now. I’m sorry for the long comment. I just had to hop on the soapbox for a moment. By the way, thanks for posting! I was going insane.

Dana,I can assure you that I did not post that. Also, I do not believe Donovan knows your web address, so I doubt it was him either. Sounds like you have a Great Big Chicken on your hands. I do post as anonymous becuase I dont have a blog, but I will always sign my name to anything I write.Troy

Okay, forgive me Dana for having possibly the longest comment I’ve ever done on a blog, but I feel this deserves it.I was trying to be nice before and just stating that I figured the post was not from Donovan or Troy because neither of them are as cocky, arrogant, and both understand the power of words. They understand the importance of using intelligent conversation to express their viewpoints and keep personal attacks out of political views.First off,”Well, you haven’t convinced me that George Bush is an idiot. You have convinced me, quite elegantly, that someone else is…You.”Here is today’s lesson in English.Elegant (-ly): having dignified richness and grace, as of MANNER, design, dress, etc. I think the word you were looking for and could not form in your mind was:Eloquent (-ly): vivid, forceful, fluent, etc. in speech or WRITINGJust from one comment alone, I would say I’ve been convinced of your lack of regard for other’s opinions, your lack of knowledge, and your small confidence level. Are you just afraid of people knowing your name? Are you afraid that someone in this great big Internet will look at you funny? Are you really that lame?It takes a big man (or woman) to stand up and voice an opinion where everyone can hear it. These people have changed the world, over and over again. It takes a small person to insult anonymously, leaving nothing on the line. I admire Dana for being able to express her beliefs for everyone to see, proud to put her name on the writings. She is a strong individual, ready to make this world a better place. If she sees something she doesn’t agree with, she doesn’t attack the person. There is such a thing as grace, courtesy, and respect. She is also mature. She doesn’t need to attack a person’s physical appearance just to feel better about herself, sitting at a computer where there are no risks.Since the door was opened by Anonymous, I feel as if personal attacks may now be allowed. Get a life you stupid, small-minded, inept idiot. Now, for the comment from “Your mother”:”I’m assuming it’s from one of my friends and we’ll laugh about it later because, if I am anything, it is certainly elegant.”If you are anything, it is actually, what we like to call in the business, FAT.- Your MotherDana, I don’t know your mother well, but I don’t get this impression from her. I’m assuming this was also the same simpleton who commented before, coming back to the scene of the random hatred spread. Dana is a wonderful person, caring, loving, fun, smart, big-hearted, kind, joyous, loyal, and true. She may be larger than other people. She is also smaller than other people. Anyone who chooses to see physical appearance should be hanging out at a bar, trying to pick up anything that moves. I doubt Anonymous has much success with this so he or she chose to attack someone online to boost his or her own self-esteem. Yes, I know this is Dana’s battle. She may be the leader in this one, but I’m going to be on the front-line, defending her all the way. To Dana – You are lovely. You are admirable. You are strong. You are smart. And you deserve to have your own opinion and you deserve to express your opinion on your blog. If someone wants to be a jerk, know that they are probably lacking the joys in life that you have in abundance. I await your reply to this moron.Beth

You just got spam!!And also, that person is the idiot. Anyone who hides behind “anonymous” while insulting is proving their own idiocy.

Why would I bother setting up an account if Dana here can’t even be bothered to make a cogent argument as to why Bush is a “trained monkey” (quite original, by the way)?- Kisses

I don’t know if he is a chicken or not. From my experience as a chatroom admin, I can say that there are plenty of posters like this. Mostly they turn out to be kids, not old enough to vote, that are looking to get a remark or a rise. Best to do is just ignore him. He will get board and move on. Your other choice is to click ON THE NOT ALLOW ANONYMOUS POST. If that doesn’t slow him down, I have some admin tricks that can make sure he leaves you alone.Free speech is one thing, straight out insults are not welcome! I mean come on! If you are going to be amn enough to add your comments, have the balls to sign your name!

Dana,You know how I feel about you, and you know that if anyone every says anything bad about you I am going to get angry, so for the follow ing comments that I am about to leave on this area, I do apologize. Before I start, I would like to say this, Dana you are one of the most lvoing, loveable, caring, thoughtful, and damn beautiful people I have ever met. That will never change, nor will it falter. Now, for the person who is now signing his/her/its name as “kisses”-YOU ASSHOLE! How dare you decide who is and is not worthy of goodness, and the right to express their opinion. When did I wake up in a Nazi Regime, you condescending prick, or prickette, what ever you may be. Other than a chicken shit, I have no idea if you are male or female, but I know a coward when I see one, or read one, or have the displeasure of running into one at an event. However if I ever do run into one at an event, outing, or what ever and they insult my friends, my FAMILY the way that you just did, I have no option but to tear them a new one, either verbally or physically. Which for your feeble mind, meaning stupid brain, you may not knwo what I mean. So let me just explain it to you this way, I will either make you feel just as stupid as you truly are by using words, or I will use my fists and make you feel the same pain on your body that you made the person you insulted feel in their mind. I do not know who made you the center of the universe and the one that makes all the rules, but you need to back the hell off. Every one, including you, has the right to express their opinion (such as I am doing right now), but no one, I mean NO ONE, has the right to attack another perosn, or animal, for no reason what so ever. Yes I did say that even chicken shit, yellow bellied, cowardly, dickless, testicle envying, bastards (bitches) have the right to express opinions. If you choose to attack my family, because not only did you attack my Dana, you attaked my father AND you attacked my Little Sister, if you were near me you would wish you were dead. Being that I cannot reach you through the computer screen, I cannot harm you in the way that would do the world a favor and myself, but I can at least let you know that you are a worthless person. I only took the time to defend my family’s honor, and try to let you know that you are a waste of oxygen, of blood, and of tissue. You are not even human, you are sub-human, you are below human, you are below aniaml. As a matter of fact,they don’t even have a classification for you other than waste product. So you can understand what I mean, let me put it into words that you would understand, you are shit, you are piss, you are crap, you are barf, you are everything that a person does not need in their life, so their body will naturally reject it. Much the same way I am sure your mother’s body did to you. I don’t think you were born the way most people are, I have this feeling that you were born from a bout of diarrhea from your mother. You are scum, and like all scum, you should be eradicated and wiped off the face of the earth, you low life little bastard. If you want to comment, come to my post thewindowlickingcat.blogspot.com, feel free to leave your vile words on my site, but don’t you dare pollute Dana’s post again you prick.As a matter of fact, let me even go one step furterh, give you my first and last name, because I do not fear chicken shit nor cowards, and you will not bully me. My name is Matt Satriano, and I live in Minnesota. So come to me you little shit, and let’s see how tough you really are you waste.Matt

BETTER YET MATT, WHEN HE VISITS YOUR BLOG, CAPTURE HIS IP #. i HAVE MORE THEN ENOUGH CONTACTS TO TRACK HIM DOWN WITH THAT. DO THE SAME DM, PULL HIS IP AND SEND IT TO ME. i’M SURE HIS PARENTS WILL BE THRILLED WITH WHAT HE HIS WRITTING.

Dear Anonymous:I am not always willing to see the good in people, like Beth; and I don’t much try to keep my manners, like DM. So let me start off by saying:You are an absolute wanker of the bottom-feeding variety. You’re not even worth the DELETE button, what an absolute waste of breath you are. You’re also very right in posting anonymously, who’d be interested in reading your sad, pathetic little blog should you have one? Some of us do have lives. So sad…DM doesn’t have to prove anything abt the scum that is president right now, his actions and words speak for themselves. But having a git like you vote for him, well, what else is there to say? (Let me add anyway that your mastery of English is quite the turn on, Lover Boy, I’m all a-flutter.)At least you have the good taste of acknowledging DM’s style as elegant. It is rather, isn’t it? I find that your choosing to pick on her weight is so in character with what you have chosen to reveal of yourself, albeit unknowingly. NEWSFLASH for you, you loser: DM has been losing weight, not that it’s any of your business. There’s a very good chance she’ll some day no longer be fat. You, OTOH, will always look ugly (which I’m sure you do, you frustrated tosser). And your penis will always be a tad too small. And chances are you’ll never really learn how to use it, so sorry. Not that you get around to it much, I’m sure (what, next you’ll try to tell me you were the High School Stud).There are professionals out there who may help you work on your low self-esteem and general lack of any real worth and courage. But we don’t really give a damn, do we. In the mean time, you bloody coward, FUCK OFF. I hope this was cogent enough for you.PS – I also do go on and on, don’t I. Oh dear, how frightful of me. And do you know, I’m about 5’8 (1,73) and NOT fat. Funny, that. Oh and your kisses were a bit lacking (shocker!) but do keep trying. Maybe if you paid extra the hos could teach you.

God, I thought you people were supposed to be jolly.Let me get a couple things straight. I’m a nazi because I called her fat. I must have missed that part of the holocaust in school. “Hitler killed millions of Jews, Blacks, and Fatties.” Somehow I don’t think that was in my history book.You say I have a feeble mind and then do nothing but threaten me with bodily harm? It takes a big man to do that. I mean real big, like cleaning yourself with a rag on a stick large.Next, anyone can express their opinion. I am of the opinion that Dana is a fat idiot. Thank you first amendment.If I were near you, I would wish I was dead because dear god that stench of yours is awful.Matt Satriano from Minnesota? THE Matt Satriano from Minnesota? Wow.Not my IP address! Dear god, I’m so scared!My question is, if I’m so worthless, why are you all getting so worked up?- Kisses

Mr. Anonymous,The ignorant has spoken and he knows how to blog. Sir Kisses or Mr. Anonymous whatever it is you do call yourself. I understand you are sitting in a dark room probably looking at porn of women having sex with animals. Though in your busy life you found the time to read a blog of woman whom I consider a friend and you chose to insult her both physically and mentally. Though I appreciate the time you took out of your animal porn search let me attack you now. To quote you: “I’m assuming it’s from one of my friends and we’ll laugh about it later because, if I am anything, it is certainly elegant.”I think you mean ‘eloquent’. Please use english not gibberish and if not its too much trouble would you please, at your earliest convenience, instead of going to the I sit alone in a dark room with my pants unzipped.com or wherever animal loving can found these days visit a library or a bookstore preferably the kind without a full pullout section and buy yourself a thesaurus or a dictionary. You’re next statement and I quote If you are anything, it is actually, what we like to call in the business, FAT. In the business of acne cream and animal loving the business I envision of yours. I’m sure you can find a way to express your Politically views in a fashion that’s sticks to the format intelligence versuses ridiculous name calling is lost You were not paying attention to the assignment. I see no picture of you therefore one can only assume you are no Adonis or sign your name must be all the hand lotion from previous site exploration.Your next fatal error was noted and I quote “Fat chicks do go on and on, don’t they?” – Kisses Well when a friend of ours is insulted we stand up for them. Let me see how can I explain to you in words you will understand AHH…When someone insults your blowup doll and you say “Hey that’s my only friend! Sure she’s been poped a few times and she’s sticky but as long as I can pump her up she still loves me.” Well sir you attack her you attack us all. Calling Dana or Beth names is like calling us all names. Though I pride myself on my maturity. I could go to that level as well but I do not I do not need to state the obvious. Then kind sir you said: God, I thought you people were supposed to be jolly.Let me get a couple things straight. I’m a nazi because I called her fat. I must have missed that part of the holocaust in school. “Hitler killed millions of Jews, Blacks, and Fatties.” Somehow I don’t think that was in my history book.You say I have a feeble mind and then do nothing but threaten me with bodily harm? It takes a big man to do that. I mean real big, like cleaning yourself with a rag on a stick large.Next, anyone can express their opinion. I am of the opinion that Dana is a fat idiot. Thank you first amendment.If I were near you, I would wish I was dead because dear god that stench of yours is awful.Matt Satriano from Minnesota? THE Matt Satriano from Minnesota? Wow.Not my IP address! Dear god, I’m so scared!My question is, if I’m so worthless, why are you all getting so worked up?- KissesOh porn/perv boy now I will answer this another proof of your stupidity. We are supposed to be ‘Jolly’ you are supposed to be intelligent. Damn another sterotype or assumption proven wrong! Actually calling you a Nazi is wrong at least they had goals completely skewed, twisted, deranged but they had them. You sir should take the time to learn what a metaphor is. They are saying you hurt people that you deem less than you by only physical traits or of different thinking than themselves wait you are a Nazi that was the idea behind the Nazi Regime. HMM me thinks the Perv contests too much! I love people like you I have the right to say what I feel 1st Ammendment, 1st Ammendment blah blah! You are allowed to state your feelings, however you are not allowed by most IP’s to use harassing or slandering wayss to do it. So technically, Pay attention as this does concern you Mr. Kisses you broke the law. Now the Ammendment is thrown out the window. Damn fine print it will get you all the time. Bodily harm that is awful how are you supposed to type in your favorite porn sites I agree that is to far. I mean really those models and child molesters must be paid by someone and fortunately for them it is you. I do believe however you do have a feeble mind. Afterall you haven’t argued your political points you just managed to stick to one syllable insults please Mr. Kisses I emplore read a book that does not show breasts! Stench AAW the porn lovers perfume since you spend your day verbally assulting others you probably can not find the time to I don’t know bathe or use any hygiene products available at your local drug or grocery stores. The Stench you emit from your words it is doubtful anyone but your blowup doll could stand to be near you. Sir no one is worthless as you stated about yourself, some people just happened to have a higher value or worth then others. You sir are of the lowest denomination.Mr. Kisses/ Animal Porn watcher Meet Mr. Foaming at the mouth raging Bitch. If you wanna insult my friends, then Sir we’ll go!Scott M. I don’t ever wanna talk about this again!

Scott, Matt, Troy, Katie, Beth, Lioness, Firebear, DeAnn (is that everyone? I think it’s everyone) I might have missed: I love you guys. You are great people and you continously remind me of how lucky I am to know you. This is amazing. I can’t believe the amount of commenting this has generated. You guys remind me each day of what friendship is supposed to be like, instead of the twisted “friendships” I’ve had in the past. Quite frankly, as much as I love hearing how great you all think I am, I’m getting bored with Kisses. For some reason, this person seems to think that calling me a fat idiot is a big deal to me. It’s not. I’ve been insulted by people with a much better turn of phrase than this person can seem to turn out. Nothing he or she says on my blog can do me any harm because I know that the people I care about, the people who care about me, will completely disregard anything that he or she has to say. I’ve known people who thought it was funny to say stuff very similar to the garbage that Kisses (as we’re choosing to call this person) is leaving on my blog. What I’ve noticed is that if you don’t respond to what they have to say, they usually go away. I don’t know who this person is or why they seem to have such hostility towards me but frankly, I don’t really care. Let’s not let this person ruin our days. I’ve got better things to do.
