He's from Marblehead before moving south (me too though a couple of decades earlier), so maybe i am inclined to cut him more slack than some. the southern "Gator" pose is kind of humorous to me.
I think he's largely harmless, and occasionally injects something interesting to the discussion. And pretty good at trolling. And actually respectful on occasion when warranted. He didn't get under my skin that much, but i don't tend to tangle with people on this board anyway. I'm willing to let the Mods be Mods but wouldn't mind seeing him back.
Ditto DoRag, but I gather his absence is voluntary.
He got a permanent spot on my ignore list - in fact the ONLY spot on my ignore list - when he accused Jeff of bombing children in the middle east and killing them on purpose. Frankly, he should have been permanently gone at that point. Accusing someone of willingly killing children crosses just about every line there is.
If you think BG is harmless, you really haven't seen what's gone on.
Not to be a stick in the mud, but that's a pretty awful pick for Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman was an Amazon warrior. Literally. Extremely tall (6 ft), ripped with muscles, and best describe as "Tits with a sword".
If we're going with 5 9', Maria Kirilenko would have been a much better choice (if she can act).
I run a 48" simplicity commerical dual stage thrower. I do 300 feet long by 26 feet wide, then I usually have to do the road too so I can get out to the pavement. I also use it to make a big pile in the center of my yard for my kids =).
There is a BIG difference between your $800 24 inchers and your $2000 24 inchers. The amount of plastic you'll find is just the first thing to look at. Electric start, dual stage, drift breakers, turn assist, electric chute control. This is the small version of the commercial one that I use. It's a heavy duty version with a narrow swath. You don't get better in a 24 inch machine.
Most of the snow clearing services around here that don't use a 3 point tractor snowblower opt for the simplicities. They're very solid and the B&G motors are quite good.
Mr Regatta Dog, I have a problem with people who are so one sided that they cannot contribute to a conversation. You can wave your flag, wave your purple heart bandaid, wave your shrewish slogan, but don't do it at me please.
The numbers from the sequester are not even available for 2013, as I informed Mr Saorsa. The numbers showing a deficit reduction are from past Obama budgets if you have something to counter that please show it now. thank you.
You're a relatively new poster here, so I'll try to be gentle.
You claimed that our commander-in-chief has lowered the deficit through a 'lot of vehicles'. You were challenged to enumerate them. Illuminate us. Enlighten our perspective. So please.... produce said facts. Or fuck off.
