    Well, to the extent that they defined the tomato as a vegeable
    instead of a fuit, I guess you're right.

    For you, it's tough, because you can't see my postings. C'est

    You're exactly the kind of power-hungry kook some of the
    founders feared when they believed some fool would interpret the Bill
    of Rights as an exclusive and exhaustive list of rights granted to the

    It is the government which is denied rights not explicitly
    granted. All others are reserved to the people. Buy a copy of the
    Constitution and read it carefully, not like some of our right-wing SC

    It is rthe rabid neocons who established the laws specifying
    that the government be allowed to examine the private records of
    citizens, then mandated that the citizen must be excluded from even
    the knowledge of such examination, under pain of law, by the entity
    forcd to hand over such records.

    More to the point, jerkoff, you don't even pull the plunger.
    as proven by your childish response to the very next message from

    Why are you unable to really plonk anyone? It would have to be
    that plonking, to you, is simply a childish exercise intended to show
    how superior you are; then you're bound to "peek" to see what people
    think of you for your silly plonking.

    Grow up and stop your infantile games.

    But you didn't see any of this because I'm plonked, right?

    So are you.

    Since usenet is clearly not up to adequate emphasis so that
    your SCREAMED point bears its proper weight, why dion't ou piss off
    and join a teen chat group which allows HTML posting so that you're
    adequately understood. It would be about your speed.

    Oh, sorry -- you can't see my postings.

    I fully accept the Ninth Amendment and understand what it says; what you
    imagine it means is unclear, but evidently in error whatever it is.

    Your confusion is not my problem and in all likelihood uncorrectible anyway.
    Goodbye now.

    It's not enough that he does so, he and his slightly saner buddy
    can't simply do it and get on with their life, such as it is.
    Interestingly, I was plonked not for shouting or being abusive. I
    received the threat that if in my reply I didn't agree with the
    plonker's POV I would be plonked. Had I capitulated to that threat
    it would have been a pathetic response on my part to a pathetic
    threat. Some people can only survive by finding ways to refuse to
    see the obvious. Others butt up against cognitive dissonance and
    are able to grow beyond their security blanket limitations. I
    already composed a reply with respect to plonking but saved it.
    I'll dig it up and post it shortly after this one is sent.

    Almost. Going by an old, possibly mythical legend (more likely to
    be promulgated by those who have overused their right wing), those
    that plonk their magic twanger too often risk going blind. :)

    And thank you for the link. I remember being slightly disappointed
    when Smilin' Ed passed the reins to Wild Bill Hickok's sidekick, but
    it didn't matter very much since Froggy was the main attraction. :)

  11. Speaking of which, it's mainly you and yours who are keeping this frazzled
    thread going now, as you go around and around congratulating yourselves for
    something or other. Your life doesn't lend itself to getting on with, I

    Wow. That must have been a terrifying experience, and your courage in the
    face of that, uh, threat is surely inspiring to all. If Bill Clinton were
    still president he'd probably have given you a medal for it. Hey, if he
    could give the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian
    award, to that old Chicago shakedown artist Jesse Jackson, then *you* should
    have gotten at least *something*, maybe the Order of the Spotted Dress or
    something like that. Come to think of it, if John Kerry (the self-described
    "next JFK from Massachusetts") had only made the grade maybe he could have
    gotten you one of those Purple Hearts too. Oops, no, my bad, that calls for
    at least a self-inflicted wound requiring a Band-Aid.

    Others only by setting up straw men and knocking them down, evidently. Or do
    you actually have a logical argument supporting your co-circle-jerker's
    apparent opinion that the Ninth Amendment makes "constitutional" any "right"
    that anyone can invent?

    What's the matter with you, ASAAR? I used to think you were a reasonably
    intelligent fellow. Had too many of those Hillary Specials down at Kentucky
    Fried Chicken? They're bad for you, you know. Deposit a lot of fat in the

    <g> Most shows protected us sensitive little kiddies from such
    messy details. On the other hand, another (local?) show from that
    era ("Philbert the Flea") had no such qualms. Knowing that their
    broadcast days were ending, they writers had Philbert save the day.
    The mechanism was for him to bite the end of a match, creating the
    flame that would somehow free his little buddies (I don't recall
    many other details, though I can still sing part of the show's theme
    song), and in the process going out in a blaze of glory in the last

    Touchy, touchy. I think it can easily be shown that you and your
    buddy have shared the largest number of self-congratulatory posts.
    And your facts are either wrong or misleading. Ignoring the fact
    that you've posted more than 400% more messages to this thread than
    I have, since you stated two days ago that "this conversation is
    hereby ended", we've both posted 5 additional messages. But that
    said, don't you think it's silly to complain that others who have
    made no similar declaration would be the ones responsible for
    keeping the thread going? If you stayed away as promised, the
    thread would slowly (or quickly) peter out. I'd say that by not
    staying away as promised, *you* are most responsible for keeping the
    thread going.

    Oops. This makes my sixth post since your declaration. If you
    add a sixth of your own, only time will tell. :)

    Ah, the standard technique of the right wing Kool-Aid drinking
    extremist, resorting to unnecessary slimy statements direct from the
    playbook. What many people may not understand is that the extreme
    right wing *needs* people such as the Clintons, Kennedys, Jackson,
    Kerry, et al. to keep their base frenetic and salivating. I thought
    that by now, long after the election, people would have been too
    ashamed of those bogus Band-Aid charges to bring them back to life.
    I'd have thought you'd be a bit smarter than the gullible true
    believers. Guess not.

    I haven't been involved here in any discussions involving the
    Constitution or the Ninth Amendment, nor do I plan to waste my time
    on what is sure to be a fruitless exercise. Why are you trying to
    extend this thread after accusing others of keeping it going? As
    Spock would have said, "illogical".

    Without a sufficient amount of fat, the brain stops functioning
    normally, so I'm all in favor of the healthy, life-giving aspects
    that can be gotten from a fresh, hot bucket of fried chicken. You
    sound like you'd benefit from a some of that yourself. :)

    I don't usually go to KFC as I can do better with my own chicken
    fryer. It's tastier, less greasy, and much more inexpensive by far.
    I do go there maybe once every year or two, but I've never seen any
    Hillary Specials. If she's gotten involved in a business
    arrangement with Kentucky Fried Chicken I may well go there more
    often. At least KFC has better fried chicken than the greasier fare
    from Popeye's or the right wingettes served at Chick-Fil-A.

  17. No idea who my "buddy" is supposed to be.

    Probably because I've been replying to 400% more people than you have.

    When I say "this conversation is hereby ended" it *is* ended with whoever I
    said that to. It wasn't you.

    I haven't *complained* about that. I simply made the observation.

    "Touchy, touchy."

    Did you find that "promise" in the Ninth Amendment too? What are you doing,
    playing Tweedle Dee to whatsisname's Tweedle Dumb?

    That certainly demonstrates that I must have enormous POWER, since my posts
    here have been only a minority of the recent ones.

    Time has told.

    All God's creatures have some purpose, some place in the scheme of things, I
    suppose. Clintons, Kennedys, Jacksons, tree slugs, rats, mosquitos etc.

    It's understood of course that to a leftist-liberal, "bogus" means
    "thoroughly documented but I don't accept it anyway." Leftist-liberals
    evidently believe reality can actually be demolished just that easily, by
    steadfast refusal to accept it. All the Swift Boats Veterans' accusations
    against Kerry have been completely and convincingly supported, but
    Kerryistas still believe that if they only keep claiming they're "bogus,"
    that will take care of it.

    I'll have to take your word for it; I don't go to any of those places.

    A Hillary Special consists of two small breasts, two large thighs, and two
    left wings.
