Who are these heathens?


I was heading to a quick lunch today on the Upper East Side, and I saw the bars already had their St. Patty's Day paraphernalia up. You know, the leprachauns and the Erin Go Braugh signs, and pictures of green beer for the big day Friday.

Forget abortion. THIS is the moral outrage of our times. Who are these scoundrels that would take an innocent beer and color it green like that? And, even worse, who are the people who actually drink it?

Oh yeah, it's the high school kids from Long Island who flood into the city every March 17, and try desperately to get into the bars. Punks.

Stay home ya little bastards.

Leave it to jbk to take one of the most horrendous issues of our times, abortion and trivilaize it with something about drinking. And you wonder why your side cant win presidential elections, my friend. Its because more people out here think like me than think like you. You live in your little Manhattan bubble but it's not that way in the rest of the country, trust me.

Hey, Bally, how about once in awhile actually answering a question that is asked of you instead of only insulting. And you wonder why people don't take you seriously!

I asked you a serious question a couple of times now, and each time it's asked, you stop commenting for a couple days until JBK changes the subject, and you insult him again. No, I'm not a little "crony" that's defending him, I'm wondering why you're scared to answer a question!

Bally, I usually try not to post too often in the comments section because I get to take my shots in the main page. This area is for readers, and if anyone criticizes me or anything I say, well, believe it or not, I actually appreciate seeing what the other side is thinking. (I disagree with it, but I don't mind seeing it). But, I have to say, your comments today about a “Manhattan bubble” are just idiotic.

But I guess that shouldn't surprise me. I've seen other commenters here try to engage you in a serious debate, and all you do is call names or ignore their comments.

Anyway, you can say whatever you want about my views on abortion rights, or my drinking habits, whatever you want - that's fine. I seriously don't mind. But let me remind you and your conservative brethren that it was Manhattan that was hit on 9-11, and it will likely be Manhattan that is hit again, if there is another strike. It won't be East Bumfuck, Alabama. It will be right here in this liberal, godless city, in this big blue state.

And you know what? We have made our decision, and we just don't like the way Bush and the Republicans have run this country. I read a fascinating article a few weeks ago about the HUGE fear of terrorism out there in America in the most unlikely places, (when I remember where I read it, I will post a link to it later) and it basically theorized that this fear is why Bush continues to be popular among a certain segment of the country. These yokels think he is somehow protecting them. And the article noted that the chances of terrorists striking in these places where W. remains popular is slim to nil. If the terrorists do strike again, it's going to be right here in Manhattan, or in L.A., or San Francisco, etc. It's not going to be in Nebraska or Utah.

For all the brave talk you red state folks seem to espouse, many of you also seem to live your lives pissing in your pants scared of the bogey man. You know what, here in commie liberal pinko Manhattan, we deal with it - we go on with our lives every day and we have fun and we don't like Bush. Sorry.

So, again, say whatever the hell you want to about my views, but don't try to somehow tar Manhattan as being in a “bubble.” I literally smelled the aftermath of 9-11 from my apartment, Bally. All you macho red state folks pretty much look like pussies to us here when we hear you all wailing about terrorism and we watch your eagerness to roll over and turn your civil liberties over to Bush and the GOP.

bally 107 where are you from? I'm just curious?

You know bally 107, he was making a joke about beer and abortion or whatever. Not everything has to be a deep moral comment. You just sound stupid when you say stuff like that.

Our godless, fun, fantastic Manhattan bubble (plus the other 4 boroughs) should secede from the rest of the country. It should be known as the Sovereign Republic of New York.
Everything is here already so who the fuck needs the rest of this nutjob country?

Right on grande enchilada - although maybe we should let them have Staten Island:)

Hey New Yorkers, don't judge us all by the stupid things said by one person. We're not all like that. Just as you dont want NY to be judged by a few idiots, we don't either.
