The Koran & 9:11

In case you have received that bullshit e-mail about the Koran's reference to 9:11, here's a rough translation of what verse 9:11 actually says:

Koran (9:11) - "But if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, they are your brethren in faith and We make the communications clear for a people who know."

But somehow, that one doesn't fit into the REpublican philosophy.

Also, question anything you get, reportedly, penned by George Carlin. His own website disputes most of what is going around.

Maybe if it all works out for the republican party the Muslims will accommodate them and have the Koran changed to fit the urban legend.

Hey Ricky, The girls down at the gallery tells me that your cheap work doesn't sell at all and you should look into another hobby. Also I read where you DID keep the tax cut money. I'm proud of you Little Feller, You might get to become a good Republican after all. Just stay away from those loser commies on ATimes. They are insignificant little people who don't work and don't pay taxes and hates those that do.

Silly rabbit. Somebody should have told you a "gallery" isn't just a place where you go to shoot those little plastic ducks, pretending to be a big game hunter.

WOW Baber. You must be getting soft in your old age. I remember a time when you would have answered the dis on your artwork more like this -
"OK Anonymous you got me. The art thing is just a cover for my real business - selling internet porn featuring your mother", or something like that.
Yur being awful nice to the guy. Are you feeling OK?

If I got into a pissing match with every guy who returns from a weekend PromiseKeepers meeting with his gay buddies and finds out I banged his wife while he was gone, I'd be fighting all the time. You're right. I'm too old for that. Besides, I'm all about love and peace. You know that.

What kind of a knuckle draggin, toothless, swill cup drinkin, mouth breathin, rifle dry humpin (CENSORED) on a rebel flag, sniffin Dale Jr.'s race worn e-bay whitey tighties, A.) Actually has access to the internet. B.) Spends time in an art gallery C.) Lacks the testicular fortitude to sign his name to something? Were you too (CENSORED)ing stupid to figure out how to fill out your name or does everyone else in the world know you as anonymous too? If you're going to take shots at people you should at least be man enough to nut up and sign your work. Don't feed me that shit about the girls down at the art gallery, you don't know any girls. I'm sorry if I come off as abrasive it's just that I am.

Well somebody has to be the fact checker around here, so I'll take up the cause. Nonni, I hate to break it to you but I found several errors with your entry.
Below are a few.

1.) You said "Good Republican". This is by definition an oxymoron.
Main Entry: ox·y·mo·ron
Pronunciation: "äk-sE-'mor-"än
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural ox·y·mo·ra /-'mor-&/
Etymology: Late Greek oxymOron, from neuter of oxymOros pointedly foolish, from Greek oxys sharp, keen + mOros foolish
: a combination of contradictory or incongruous words (as a good Republican); broadly : something (as a concept) that is made up of contradictory or incongruous elements

2.)It is 2007 the phrase "commie loser" has since been replaced with unpatriotic. I might add that I think it is pretty clear that it doesn't make sense to call commie's losers since we're continually spiraling into a deeper trade deficit with China.

One entry found for loser.
Main Entry: los·er
Pronunciation: 'lü-z&r
Function: noun
1 : a person or thing that loses especially consistently
2 : a person who is incompetent or unable to succeed; also : something doomed to fail or disappoint
I would recommend retracting your statement and using something like "Those loser Bush policies down at the Arkansas Times". When making a statement in a public forum, you really want to make sure it resonates with a large audience. I really think you're probably only reaching oh, I'd say 28% of your target audience.

3.) You don't know any girls.

to: james f. baber a.k.a. asshole...listen fuckhead...I am a women and I know lot's of women and the ones in the art business in this area think your (his) art work sucks and doesn't sell...check it out commie.
you are not impressing any one with your dumb ass remarks. Stay off the ATimes blog and get a real job. A lot of folks in the Arkansas Communist Party, located in Hillcrest, may could find you something...say..loading dock at Mabelline? LOL

hey james a.k.a. asshole....what did you do with the tax money President Bush saved you in six years? Surely you sent it back to the IRS! Right fuckhead? All you good commies want higher and higher taxes..only not on your ass.

Rick Baber said...

So...YOU're a woman??
There, there Nonnie. Get hold of yourself. Take a deep breath. Better? Don't you just hate it when you go into some writing rage and spew out a bunch of ignorant, non-intellectual sewage like you did above? You hit the "send" button, then think "Gosh, now everybody's going to think I'm a Potty Mouth Slut!"
Hey! There's a real name for you - PMS. Why don't we use that from now on, so you don't have to go through life as "Anonymous"?
If you're so jealous of the people in Hillcrest, just don't go up there. It'll help.

otisj said...

I have heard that women who suppress lesbianism have a tendency towards fits of rage. This might explain PMS's rant. Are you sure that isn't Laura Bush?

Rick Baber said...

PMS, (Anon)
I took a nice long drive today, which gave me time to reflect upon your comments regarding your girlfriends at some art gallery. You know what? They shouldn't be forced to sell that crappy artwork if their customers aren't receptive to it. So, tell your girlfriends at the gallery to give me a call. I'll come pick up that crappy artwork, bring them a nice bottle of wine, and still pay them their commission as if they sold it.
Because, that's the kind of nice guy I am.
Also, as I told you on another thread, I'm working on some black velvet stuff you might find more appropriate for your trailer. Presuming you already have enough NASCAR and Dogs Playing Poker prints, so I'll try to come up with something different.

I get the sense I've read some of PMS's work before on the AT blog. Telltale signs are, "...I am a women" (using the plural form of woman) as well as "little feller".

Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but what do we expect?

James F Baber said...

Ma'am, my apologies. I was just picturing you as more like that "Git-R-Dun" guy, you know?
Where my tax refund dollars went:
38% Habitat for Humanity.
21% Homeless dude at Broadway and I 30
12% Pinnacle Vodka (France's Finest)
9% Tip at The Fountain (In Hillcrest)
4% Condoms
3.75% Allocated towards my wife's "fun parties"
2.5% Golf Balls
2.25% TD Ameritrade (BBI, TIVO, DTV, TSN, WMT)
2.25% NFL Sunday Ticket
2% Curlin at the AR Derby!
1.25% Red Bull (It gives me wings!)
1% Great Value Golden Corn in a can from Wal-Mart.
I would've given it back to Bush, but he keeps talking about that "Trickle Down Effect" and I couldn't think of a better way to distribute wealth.

Thanks HM.
I was beginning to have visions of Lola and Norman Bates' mom. Are you sure this is a "real" woman???
