For The Deleted Ones #3

My Recent Posts

I suspect were in for a record week of deleted comments for some odd reason, so feel free to copy those comments on this post. Don't forget to reference the intended article (as if we probably won't already know).

All I ask is no name-calling or slander.

"because you have no self control and are effeminate and weak." 
 
An "after the fact", conscientious objector (read coward) calling other people "effeminate and weak" wins the "Psychological Projection of the Week" award.
 
They'll mail you your award certificate, Ryan.  You can hang it with all of your others.

Sorry, Ryan, but you can only win one award per week.   Otherwise, you'd certainly be in the running for the "Two Words That Have Never Applied To You" award.

OK Bill,
I post here first for equity ha
The Spell will be done on Dec.  17th, 2018.  At whatever time is good for you.
It will take 5 minutes of your time.
You will need 1 white candle.
You will light the candle, and say:
"The wheel has spun
The time has come
for chickens to come home to roost.
Time to reap what you have sowed.
Let the guilty pay
Let justice call
for all, be it  high or low
and those who thought
that they were above the law.
Lady Justice her blindfold
has removed, the scales will now list
to justice and retribution.
Those who have lied, cheated, pillaged,
and raped will now fall.
The shoe has dropped, the light now shines
upon all of these hidden crimes.
Treason and traitors, criminals all
now the time has come for you all
to fall, because Karma now has
come to call.
Let the world be saved, and Democracy
survive, the end has come to those who
have tried to end the light of love and
truth and equality. 
And so it is, and so mote it be.

               Let the candle burn out.
Cheers America,
All together NOW

Ryan,
 
That's sweet the way that you miss James T.  I agree, he was a good pal and a whole lot of fun.
 
Here is what James T. thought about you Ryan.
 
My advice (regarding Lying Ryan) is to ignore his articles, ignore and delete his posts on your articles. Problem solved. As to others it's a case by case basis. And for the record I do not have a problem with people who have a religious belief (I have one myself), but the psychos like Ryan who are intolerant of all others different from them should themselves not be tolerated. Simple as that. 
 
Happy Pagan Satanic Christmas or whatever it is that you celebrate James, if you are still lurking.

Here is my latest from Ryan's insane attack on Will Meek.
 
Ryan,
 
If Wendy left you a nice comment about the Bible, why the fuck did you delete her?
 
For good measure, here is Jeff Michka's comment from the same waste of time article.
 
Ryan has to come in and delete me here.  Gee Lyin Ryan, why don't you tell Bug how you hold women in contempt.  Isn't that what cost you your election, leamo?  Your uptight hatreds cost you big, but you still go on with your self-acclaimed purity and virtue, but have neither.  You just making noise about faith, belief, love of gawd, means nothing in your case.  Do your customers know your ERW views?  Do they have to read conservative websites and read books about the foundering fathers to keep their insurance?  Bigot boy Ryan.  Sad.
 
Oh, I left one more...
 
I have to agree with Stone.  This is a really dumb article without saying anything of value.  I figured if you singled out Will Meek, you would at the least have enough sense to debate some point that he had made.  You go off like Will has no right to quote the founding fathers whilst at the same time condemning Will for pointing out that today's republican party attracts American Nazis.
 
You are a raving, psychotic lunatic.
 
Thank you for the service, Bill.

Please do send the Vallejo City Council as much of my writing as you can.  Small strokes fell great oaks, FakeAlms. Good idea though.  LOL. 
 
Aren't you supposed to be doing your imitation of a brawling housewife and giving me the silent treatment? 
 
There are a few members of the Vallejo City Council who cherish the City Council, but the fact that FakeAlms wants to tattle on me to a mostly ahistorical, and nearly totally uninformed on the Constitution group says a lot about his lack of judgement and discernment.  Is that setting your pride radar off, FakeAlms?  It should, because you have a ton of pride to be barging into conversations with very little comprehension of virtue or history, and to try and impose your abysmal ideas into them.

I was stationed in Africa for a while and hated the damn flies that were everywhere.  I had this Lieutenant that kept saying, "Just ignore them and they won't bother you after a while".  I, of course, told him he was an idiot and kept slathering on the DEET. 
 
I mention that because R.Y.A.N. is the WB version of a fly.  I'll try to ignore him, but I sure wish there was "Internet DEET" and I won't be able to stop myself from swatting at him every now and then.
  
BTW, the Lieutenant came down with a case of pink-eye that the Corpsman said came from flies.  LOL

I don't know guys, it should make us proud that Ryan knows is so unable to defend his "arguments" that he feels he has to delete them les others see how inadequate his position is. 
Sadly I didn't think to copy any of my posts, but being deleted and blocked because he is embarrassed makes me smile.
Will Meek Added Dec 15, 2018 - 5:16pm
Bill H,
I do think your original idea of enforcing rules of civil discourse are good ones. That way people like Ryan, who resort to name calling when people don't just bow to his arrogant attitude, will know they have to behave or be kicked out.
Will Meek Added Dec 15, 2018 - 5:28pm
Mogg Tsur,
There is a contradiction in your long post about writer's prerogative.
 
"WB is a venue for writers first and foremost to express themselves on nearly any topic they choose."
 
This article is an expression of this author. Why should he lack the same privilege you grant other authors?
 
Are you not doing here the very thing you condem him for?
 
I grant you copying parts or whole of another authors work without permission is wrong, but he asked for people to copy their own posts and simply link back to the original article. 
Wendy Bugliari Added Dec 15, 2018 - 6:24pm
GOOD WITCH, BAD WITCH, ANYTHING BUT CULTIST MAFIA MORMON OR EVANGELUCULTS LIKE WACKO OF WACO:
The clan, known privately as the Order, runs what prosecutors believe is one of the largest organized-crime operations in Utah, overseeing its far-flung empire from a string of secret locations and backrooms.
On the surface, the operation is legit: From Salt Lake, the Order controls some 100 businesses spread out over the Western states, from a casino in California to a cattle ranch in Nevada to a factory that makes lifelike dolls in Utah.
Over 75 years, the Kingstons have amassed a fortune worth an estimated $300 million, but the operation skirts the edges of the law. According to people who have left the Order, the cult exploits its 2,000 members as virtual slave labor and hides profits from tax collectors.
Children born into the clan make up much of the labor force. Girls, many of them teen brides, answer phones at the Order’s law office, bag groceries at its supermarket or tend to the clan’s many children.
Boys work its coal mine and stack boxes at Standard Restaurant Supply, a massive discount store. They are paid not in cash but in scrip, an arcane form of credit used by the Mormon pioneers that can only be redeemed at company stores. “If the Order doesn’t have it,” the clan teaches, “we don’t need it.”
Kingston taught his followers that they are the literal descendants of Jesus and one of his wives, who had come down to Earth to found a race of chosen people.
He also preached a bizarre extrapolation of the Book of Mormon called the White Horse Prophecy, a dreaded prediction of a cataclysmic time when the “black race” will rise up and attempt to destroy the white man, only to be thwarted by Native Americans riding to the rescue.
Those in the Order, Kingston preached, are responsible for building a master race, which is why all marriages are arranged within the original four families that started the cult.
 
TODAY THE ORDER IS ALSO PART OF MUELLER RADAR SINCE THEY FORGED LLC USING GOC SUBSIDY PAYMENTS WHICH WERE LAUNDERED VIA TURKEY SUB OWNER FIRM THAT FLYNN CONNECTS TO AND GUESS WHO ELSE SHOWS UP?

Mogg Tsur,
Not deny certainly, but your criticism of the article exactly fits what you criticize him for.
 
He is merely expressing his disappointment at authors how delete and or block posts.
 
You suggest that it is wrong for him to express that opinion on a site that you Saud was for writers to express their opinions.
 
That is the contradiction of which I speak.

There is no way to block comments.
Will Meek Added Dec 16, 2018 - 8:00am
That is an interesting perspective but I don't see an exploration of the motivation behind the deletions as bullying. Particularly in my case where the author attempted to bully when his arguments failed sway, then just insulted, and when that failed too, then blocked and deleted me to hide the weakness in his arguments and moral character. 
 
And then much to my amusement, wrote an entire article about me, where he again was unable to justify his case with argument, resorted to insult and deleted and blocked me when that didn't work again.
 
It seems that I am not the only one he has carried out this pattern of his own weakness against. Getting together and comparing notes helps to clarify his motivations.
FacePalm Added Dec 16, 2018 - 11:20am
Will-
FJ is right; you can't be "blocked" on any comment section.  What happens is that the tyrannous author watches the article like a hawk, and swiftly deletes anything he (or she) wishes.
 
They're just acts of petty tyrants, tin-pot dictators who fail Lincoln's test, mentioned above, but repeated now for conveniences' sake: "If you wish to test someone's character, give them a little power or a little money, and watch what they do with either(or both)."
 
Those who become strutting little martinets, secure in their new official duty as "Censor Supreme," reveal themselves all-too- soon;  what i find MOST amusing is that they then dare to COMPLAIN that "no one posts to my articles anymore."  ROFL!
 
But i have a few citations on censorship that i'd like to share, that perhaps certain parties will take to heart (though in truth, i think i have about as much chance of succeeding as a popsicle can survive a toss into Kilawea's lava):
 
"The intellectually stifling results of censorship -- while deplorable in any setting -- would be all the more abominable if allowed to exist within the college environment."
-- William M. Anderson, Jr., President of Mary Washington College
Source: Letter, 7 December 1983

 
"...The Bill of Rights is a literal and absolute document. The First Amendment doesn't say you have a right to speak out unless the government has a 'compelling interest' in censoring the Internet.  The Second Amendment doesn't say you have the right to keep and bear arms until some madman plants a bomb.  The Fourth Amendment doesn't say you have the right to be secure from search and seizure unless some FBI agent thinks you fit the profile of a terrorist. The government has no right to interfere with any of these freedoms under any circumstances."
-- Harry Browne(1933-2006) American libertarian writer, politician, and free-market investment analyst. Libertarian candidate for US President 1996 & 2000, 1966

 
"The whole principle is wrong.  It's like demanding that grown men live on skim milk because the baby can't eat steak."
-- Robert A. Heinlein(1907-1988) American writer
Source: on Censorship, in his book, The Man Who Sold The Moon, p186

 
"It is an ancient truth that freedom cannot be legislated into existence, so it is no less obvious that freedom cannot be censored into existence.  And any who act as if freedom's defenses are found in suppression and suspicion and fear confess a doctrine that is alien to America."
-- Dwight D. Eisenhower(1890-1969), 34th US President, WWII General
Source: Letter, 24 June 1953

 
"We are willing enough to praise freedom when she is safely tucked away in the past and cannot be a nuisance.  In the present, amidst dangers whose outcome we cannot foresee, we get nervous about her, and admit censorship."
-- E. M. Forster(1879-1970)
Source: Two Cheers for Democracy, 1951

"What censorship accomplishes, creating an unreal and hypocritical mythology, fomenting an attraction for forbidden fruit, inhibiting the creative minds among us and fostering an illicit trade. Above all, it curtails the right of the individual, be he creator or consumer, to satisfy his intellect and his interest without harm. In our law-rooted society, we are not the keeper of our brother’s morals -- only of his rights."
-- Judith Crist(1922- ) US Film Critic

Face Palm,
Thank you for detailing the workings of deleted posts. I had not looked into it as I think resulting to insults reduces your credibility to zero so it is worth leaving insults unless they start getting in the way of rational discussion. I might have to if certain people try to disrupt the conversation on future articles. 
 
Yes, I agree that it is the mark of a petty person who knows their argument does not withstand scrutiny. 
 
And Robert Heinlein is one of my favorite fiction authors. Made me smile to see the quote here.
FacePalm Added Dec 16, 2018 - 12:41pm
I agree about Heinlein, though the works put out under his name toward the end of his life didn't have the brilliance i'd noted earlier, e.g. "Moon is a Harsh Mistress" or "Stranger in a Strange Land."
 
Here are a couple more of his citations i've grown fond of:
 
"When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, 'This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything—you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him."
--- Robert A. Heinlein, If This Goes On, 1940
 
"I am free, no matter what rules surround me.  If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them.  I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do."
-- Robert A. Heinlein(1907-1988) American author

 
"There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein(1907-1988) American writer
 
"Being intelligent is not a felony. But most societies evaluate it as at least a misdemeanor."
-- Robert A. Heinlein(1907-1988) American writer
 
"The police of a state should never be stronger or better armed than the citizenry. An armed citizenry, willing to fight, is the foundation of civil freedom."
-- Robert A. Heinlein(1907-1988) American writer

i have a few more...i've been collecting "Liberty Quotes" for many years, now.  I've found them to be a treasured resource, very handy for either supporting my arguments, or confuting those of others.
Will Meek Added Dec 16, 2018 - 1:07pm
Face Palm,
Another of my favorite home town hero's is Will Rogers.
A quote of his I like to use on people painting Democrats with a too large brush is:
"I am not part of an organized political party, I'm a Democrat"
 
Another is
 
"Everyone you know is ignorant, only on different subjects"
 
Quotes are great fun in a written argument!
Will Meek Added Dec 16, 2018 - 1:14pm
Face Palm,
 Another Will Rogers quote I should pull out more often is
"No party is as bad as it's state and national leaders"
 
A Robert Heinlein quote I sometimes use to defend my daughter.
"Little girls, like butterflies, need no excuse"
FacePalm Added Dec 16, 2018 - 1:57pm
Will-
My favorite quote of Will's - which i use often - goes like this:
 
"There's two theories on arguin' with a woman....neither one of 'em works."
 
Based on what i've seen you post elsewhere, it's not likely we'd agree much on the political front, but that doesn't mean i should treat you impolitely(or worse).  Luckily, it appears that at least one of the aforementioned pedantic bullies will be departing soon.
 
i really only have contempt for those who treat "others" with contempt, especially those who claim Christ...they have NO excuse.

That's not what Autumn set up.  She has enough on her plate already, and has two children she's trying to raise.  She has NO TIME to babysit alleged adults.

Yep. 
In addition, since our "bon mots" are routinely deleted, such disrespect and intolerance breeds - you guessed it - disrespect and intolerance.  It's that whole sowing and reaping thing, you know?  For those who claim they are obedient to Christ, their excuses hold less water than a sieve.
 
Couldn't happen to nicer people.  It is, unfortunately for them, a lesson which will have to be driven home quite forcefully and repeatedly before it stands a chance to sink in; "a reproof goes deeper into a man of understanding than a hundred blows into a fool," but maybe a thousand?  Ten thousand?  However many it takes.  Those who kick against the goads are the ones who get hurt the most.

As per usual, Mogg has deleted all his previous articles.  He's started a new one, and iaw his long-standing "policy," is very likely to delete what has been posted there - so again, for posterity's sake, i'm re-posting both Mustafa's reply and mine, below:

Indeed, that does appear to be the case, at least in some part of it.

I thought you had headed to greener pastures.

Mustafa-
Nah, that was just click bait, a deceptive narrative to draw in commenters.  Is deception a lie?  i think so; maybe he figured out a way to justify lying in his mind, but it simply cannot be reconciled with the alleged "christianity" of the author.
 
Now, he's back to whinging about the neighborhood, instead of just packing up and moving on, like his last(now deleted) article said he would do, as usual.
 
He's a liar and hypocrite, carper and complainer, unworthy of any attention or time.  Leave him alone, which is apparently the only company he enjoys unreservedly.
 
i'm going to take the liberty of scanning both your post and mine, and putting them on Bill H.'s "deleted posts" thread, as i strongly suspect his smiting hand will descend upon both posts and summarily delete them as "off-topic," when what he REALLY means is "i can't handle the truth, so i'm taking your toys away!"
 
What really cracks me up is how he will, on occasion, "reward" someone with his praise, as if the ones so treated will wriggle joyously as if they're puppies enjoying the largess of their master.  ROFL!

Here is my latest contribution.  I just had a short conversation with the Sunshine Kid on Monsieur M.'s latest rant about the president just saying fuck it and going forward with building the wall.  I basically told M. that the United States was not a dictatorship and there would be no wall.  Sunshine, being the gentleman that he is, engaged me in a rational manner.  This was my final response.
 
Nice talking to you, Kid.  You are a gentleman and a scholar.  Come the dawn, my half of the conversation will be summarily executed.
 
But in response I will say this.  The idea of a government shutdown as a weapon to use as a cudgel, (Can I steal this term from DJT?) seems foreign to me.  I was not aware of the blips that occurred under 38, 39 and 40.  It was certainly comforting to understand that the blips under Reagan were all just three days or less.  Carter maybe 10-12 days.  I don't believe it was really an issue in those days.  It simply meant that a budget had not yet been hammered out.  California went without a budget I can't remember for exactly how long.  It must have been the better part of a year.  But we managed to do it without a cessation of state services.
 
The wicked and evil shutdowns of 1995 were an invention of the demon Newt Gingrich.  Crybaby shit.  Since then the idea has become weaponized.  It is generally deployed by the House and not the Executive as I recall.
 
Trump is a big, fat blubbering baby shutting down the government in frustration over his misguided campaign promise.

I certainly agree Sunshine is a gentleman. We probably don't agree on much, but he is one of the few of that leaning that actually seems open to discussion and is a reasonable person. I don't believe I have ever heard any defaming or name-calling from him at all. Actually, if others of his leaning followed his example, there actually could be some reasoning and agreement with the opposing writers. Too bad Trump couldn't follow in his footsteps as he may have been able to actually get some good things accomplished.
Insults, name-calling, and slander were never good ingredients for accomplished discussion, getting things done, or teamwork.

It doesn't come naturally for me.  I guess I may have mellowed a little bit in two years.  It is interesting to attempt to understand what makes people tick.

I posted this on Ryan's post.


Thomas Sutrina cited piece of my pust to wit: "<<Dr. Rupert Green Added Dec 23, 2018 - 8:24am


  @Ryan. The wall should be built to keep those Jews from crossing the Mexican borders and entering our country. Cannot have those "circumcised devils" putting a hurting on fair American Christian maidens. Did we not have this dispute regarding cleaned knobbs in the past?>> " to show how bigoted I am. He asserted,  "This is Bigotry that matches Faricon similar statement about Jews"
 
 
I suppose the spelling of Farrakhan's name is not found in the New England Primer -level 1 he (Thomas) is now using to learn how to read. To Whip up sentiment against me, he alludes the Jews are White. He wrote, "Louis Farrakhan heads the Nation of Islam, a group he has led since 1977 and that is based on a somewhat bizarre and fundamentally anti-white theology. "
 
As to whether Americans accept the Jews as Whites, ask them why in the unwritten Constitution, it was stated that no gays, no Black, and no Jews must become president of the US. Granted that Thomas is using Level 1 reader, such knowledge and understanding, not contain therein, will severely stain his mental capacity, so I advise he ask some of the scholars in resident about the UNWRITTEN CONSTITUTION.
 
But to the point at hand, an understanding of target="_blank">figure of speech will advance your comprehension of my writing style.  I will help you, however, with some guiding questions.  Is the prevailing narrative that Jews are crossing the border? Is it a historical fact that Jews and Christians had a spat wherein Jews were persecuted for their practice of circumcision as being a devilish undertaking to hurt White Christian females? target="_blank">Citation
Is there not an association that some of the people crossing the border have devious sexual intents? 
 
Now lets us remove Jews from what I wrote and replace it with uncircumcised Mexicans. Why have you been an ardent supporter of the narrative that a wall must be built to keep out the Mexicans, some of whom are rapists, yet you find it a bigoted statement if a wall was being built to keep out Jews?

Is it here that I read Ryans pronunciation that masturbation and homosexuality are sins?  I must admit that I choke the chicken, but not engage in the latter (man-eating and such). Hence I challenge my religation/ostracization to, or before, the Ryan-Diet of Worms.

 I wonder if saying Ryan is a human mango worm violates Bill H's guidelines.  I'm sure Ryan is approving of Bill H since Bill is following Ryan's "orders."  If we just squeeze the infected flesh, the mango word maggot will just pop out and putting him in a dish of soapy water will end Ryan.  Happy holidays, Bill H.

Mango Worm is on the acceptable list.
Ryan is not too happy since I showed him the meaning of Troll.
Happy Holidays to you also, Jeff

First, a Merry Christmas to you!  i appreciate what you've done insofar as providing a place for those deleted by petty tyrants to record the dastardly deeds for the sake of future readers, who may be unaware and unable to retrieve evidence of the character of those who do these things.
 
Second, the rev(ulsion) is not a happy camper, and he's apparently nowhere near happy unless he's attempting to diminish or destroy the happiness of others.  Poor old sod; the misery he's attempted to sow will bring him a horrible harvest, and it's on it's way.
 
When it does, he'll say "why me?" and conveniently forget how he's treated others who are also made "in the image and likeness of God."

FP - Thanks, and a Merry Christmas to you!
I'm all for spirited discussion, but when it comes to defaming a person for their views, I draw the line.
I don't agree with party politics on either "side". I especially don't agree with simply adapting a platform and just going with whatever is dictated by the platform, especially when I see those who profess to be "God Fearing Christians" supporting things like environmental destruction, or ignoring the plight of their fellow man, or supporting someone who obviously has no morals at all.
Yep, I think Ryan will be quite surprised when he goes to the next life, only to meet another Orange guy with horns and a tail that will hand him his pitchfork and tell him to get to work.

Well, i sincerely hope he learns his lesson before that happens.  At present, there seems to be no hope of that taking place, but the old saying is "God will make a way where there seems to be no way."
 
You've probably heard me tell this story before, but i'll try to do the very brief version:
A bully had an NDE; while "dead," among other experiences, he had his soul sent back in time into the bodies of everyone he'd ever hurt, and he was made to re-live the experience, this time literally in the shoes of the ones he'd hurt - all of 'em - and he had to feel all the pain, the humiliation, the suffering he had caused everyone.  When i heard him testify about that, i said to myself, 'Wow!  That's perfect justice!'  ...And it is, too.  It's also perfectly in keeping with one of the main themes of Christ's teachings, to wit:
"As ye sow, so shall ye reap."
"Give, and it will be given unto you."
"With the measure that ye mete, it shall be measured unto you again."
"As ye would not that men do unto you, do not unto them."
 
Now, i wouldn't dare to say that this experience will come to EVERYone, but the mere possibility that such a fate COULD await us should give any intelligent man or woman some serious pause, some reflection, and potentially, a resolve to treat "others" quite a bit better than previously.

I seriously doubt if Ryan has ever experienced sex with a woman. Even though he professes that it should only occur during marriage and with the intention of having a child, I truly believe he would never participate in the act in fear of being struck by lightning. My mother in law's brother felt the same way, and was part of an obscure Protestant cult in Pennsylvania that he would never talk about.
Flying Junior Added Jan 19, 2019 - 3:25am
How embarrassing.  It's three weeks since anyone commented.  I guess I'll give up this idea.  But here is my latest on Ryan's ridiculous exposition on China.
 
January 19th, 3:20 a.m.
 
China has a very long and storied  history, one that is full of all the vicissitudes of the human experience.  Pearl Buck's 'The Good Earth' has a marvelous look into what the life of an average person in China was like, prior to the entrance of Opium and Communism, and the dark shadows …
 
As historically inaccurate as this declaratory paragraph promises to be, it is still very likely the thesis of your most important and intellectual article on the Writer Beat so far.  Keep it up, buddy-boy.
 
I always associated opium and communism even thought opium was known in ancient times.  Excuse me while I look up, "vicissitude," I don't want to miss one important detail.
