    Now the sentence is back. The comments are buggy. I’m tired of the code on this site regardless.

  • April 19, 2016 at 12:44pm

    These are reasons I stop using web sites. Blanket censorship regardless of usage. I mention legit, everyday UK usage of words, and the hints for what those words are get REMOVED. The entire sentence is gone, not just asterisks.

    I’m done with TheBlaze web site. Since I often lose track of where my comments are, I probably wouldn’t see any replies to this anyway.

    …and the coding for comments is acting up. I clicked on Save and it didn’t seem to save – countdown continued. Then click again – while countdown and Cancel and Save are still showing and it claims the post is the same as what’s already posted even though I had added the last sentence.

    Now my last sentence is missing from the previous post where I explained what I typed. I give up!

    Plus the code seems slow on my PC. It doesn’t always keep up with my typing speed. It could also be all the other plugins on the page slowing me down too. Not sure why AdBlock is turned off. I think it killed the Comment code here at one point. All of the Reply buttons disappeared one day. That was over a year ago I think. Not going to test it right now.

    Guess which words were completely censored in my post. I added the letters so you could know what word I’m using. I guess we won’t be discussing differences between US and UK English here.

    …and the letters were removed during my third edit when I saw the line spacing was messed up. The “***” is what was on the cake. The “******” adds -got.

    Any chance the cake tampered with before it got to the customer? …a different employee acting immature and adding something when no one was looking.

    How old is he? This is one of the tamer words that could have been used and sounds like he needs a safe space. Missou student?

    He better avoid British shows. In the UK, f** means cigarette. A f**got is a bundle of wood – as used in the book Fellowship of the Ring. I’ve seen the cigarette reference in multiple TV shows. While reading Lord of the Rings, I remember looking that word up after seeing a comment about throwing a f**got on the fire. I think it was Aragorn who did it.

    I’m seeing alot of assumptions here in the comments.

    My dad’s family is Lebanese, some speak Arabic, and they are a mix of Eastern Orthodox and Presbyterian. (Half of the family is one while other half is the other.) No Muslims in the family. …many of them are liberals. During the 30s and 40s and possibly even today, most people in their small town think they are Jewish even though many of the older generations hate Jews. I know my paternal grandmother hated Muslims for decades – going back to the 40s or so.

    The only Arabic I know are swear words and possibly a dialect (not proper, mainstream Arabic). Turning someone in for simply speaking Arabic isn’t good enough. Was there something about his behavior? I was adopted and have blonde hair and blue eyes (and not always view the same as a blood relative by some family members). If I just sat there rattling off my Arabic swear words, should I be questioned if no one understands what I’m saying?

    With the recruiting that ISIS has done and the teens who joined in recent years, people posing a threat could be speaking any language.

    @Windchyme-

    I have one of those $20 phones. I was unemployed for 17 months and needed an Android phone for a job – Independent contractor, no benefits but still income.

    Yes, the memory is limited and I sometimes have to uninstall apps to make room. It is not as slow as you imply. It works decently for what I need. I do plan to upgrade when budget allows, but the phone works and I love having no contract. StraightTalk service works well where I live.

    You sound kinda spoiled or picky. When on a tight budget, I’ve learned to appreciate things more. This phone gave me some income. Money is still tight and I barely make enough but it’s still income.

    That’s right… This will bankrupt the state. Didn’t they learn anything from Seattle? …then again, more unemployment, more people dependent on government assistance. Those ends that they’re trying to meet will get further apart. Some may lose any welfare assistance they were getting because now they’ll make too much to qualify.

    Too many people are short sighted and don’t think about long term consequences.

    My dad’s family kissed mouth to mouth or on the cheek regardless of gender. Cheek was more common. Mouth to mouth was usually immediate family only (parents and kids). They are Lebanese and my grandfather and his siblings were first generation born in America. My great-grandparents landed at Ellis Island.

    I also grew up in north Texas so I also grew up with the hugs for hello and goodbyes.

    I fully realize not everyone is comfortable with these acts.

    …and they’re as effective as Boris and Natasha.

    (My first thought was Fearless Leader. I know you said Dear Leader.)

    Texas doesn’t have state tax either – not personal tax anyway.

    Although it wasn’t the first time, didn’t BlackLivesMatter block a road for a protest last year? Blocking traffic isn’t a new idea. I’m not sure how long protesters have used the idea.

    Cruz said he supported the general idea of the trade agreement, but he didn’t like how the bill was written. He didn’t flip-flop.

    Most term limit arguments are for our other representatives. No more career politicians.

    Even the Secret Service knew Beck was threatening Stu. Beck was at CPAC, and Stu was in Dallas during the broadcast, making sarcastic comments about shoes. They weren’t in the same room. If Beck wanted to get Stu for the comments, he would have had to go there [Dallas] and “kill” Stu.

    Glad to see you can memorize stuff. However, it’s best to think for yourself. Vote for someone because you want to vote for him, not because of the opinions of others. Being hated doesn’t make his policies or plans great.

    Is this guy an Alinsky type plant like the black KKK member at another event? Back around 1972, Alinsky recommended some students dress as KKK and show support for Bush Sr during a speech on campus instead of protesting his speech – make it look like bad people support Bush and GOP.

    She also doesn’t want to lose supporters. Whether she gets indicted or not, part of controlling the masses is an attempt to control what gets said. She wants her followers to believe nothing is going to happen. Her followers are blindly believing her. If she does end up in jail, they will attack the justice system for framing her or being unfair to women or some other crap. Liberals seem to love their criminals.

    They call that an SUV?? It seems a bit small. I think of an SUV as being more like the size of a truck – like a Tahoe, Suburban, 4Runner, Highlander. This looks more like a hatchback. Mini-SUV, I guess.

    …and we learn Saddam’s wife (in the movie) was Hillary Rodham Hussein.

  • [1] March 5, 2016 at 8:13am

    Now I’m thinking of Hot Shots, Part Duex when the guy spits out two walnuts. “You win.”
