Vent Page XLII...The ANSWER....

The answer, yes! But, what is the question? As we ponder the implications of entering into our 42ND VENT PAGE, (uh huh, that's right! 42 Vent Pages) ...the question becomes "What is the answer to life, the universe, and everything?" You can Google this question, but it only returns you back here to our starting point for Vent Page XLII!

Amazing that vent pages have evolved to this point!

Whenever the number of posts on a vent page make it cumbersome to navigate, a new vent page is started. This is number FORTY-TWO  in our series!

VENT PAGES are handy for posting of off-topic posts, rants, raves, rages, etc which might not be appropriate on other threads where adults are having serious discussions. Childish rant? Need to call another poster a name?Just feel like spouting off? Or even if you have something to say and there doesn't seem to be any other logical place to say it....THIS PAGE IS FOR YOU!!

 Of course '42 was a significant number in the history of the American Automobile Industry. After a very VERY short run of 1942 models, production was stopped and American Assembly Lines converted to production of war materials.(except for a limited number of automobiles made primarily for government use) . 1942 models of ANY American automobiles are quite rare today. One notable example of the '42 production, was the 1942 DeSoto....styling changes included the hidden running boards and the hideaway headlights. One of the great styling achievements of the pre war Chrysler Corp cars was this model. (Probably most 'car guys' would argue that the Chrysler Airflow was the ultimate style leader for Chrysler, but this DeSoto comes close!)  The headlight feature (which had also appeared on Cords prior to this) was only for the 42 model. When production restarted with the post war 1946 models, the hideaways were no more.

And I suppose that, if we are going to highlight "42", we ought to at least give a nod to one of our favorite Raleigh restaurants...the 42nd Street Oyster Bar!

42 Is the answer to life, the universe and everything.

I can remember being 42 - barely.

Forget "Hitchhiker's Guide". It's "Doctor Who" which has lately occupied so much of my time that I have not posted here!

Rainsford (Mike D),

I thought you said you would never post on this site again? I remember you saying you were gone for good. Glad to have you back. Should we start were we left off or something new. Perhaps the all round best breed of varmit dog. Maybe the merits of logging chains vs ropes vs steel cable. Have at it.

On guuuarrrddd Rainsford!!!!!!!!

Mike D. said...

Rico,

What have you been smoking? Please indicate where I said anything of the sort!

Sarkazein said...

This how they found 1 of 3 missing PETA members attempting to protest the wearing of leather at a large motorcycle gang rally this weekend. The two others were discovered “duct taped inside several fast food restaurant dumpsters.”

Rainsford,

So you wish to debate the merits of smoking drugs. I'm against it all. I've never taken illicit drugs in my life. Have you?

Rico,

Excellent attempt to smokescreen your error; however, you forget who you are dealing with here.

Either show me where I indicated that I would no longer participate in this forum, or accept your inevitable defeat!

Yours truly,
Capt. Apollo

P.S. Your failure is epic. Have a nice day. :-)

MIkeD did say he was going to stop posting but I don;t know which thread it was in.

Anonymous said...

I remember Mike D saying that he wasn't going to post anymore on the Wautauga Watch blog. I don't think he ever said that here. I could be wrong, but you would have to show me the post.

General Zarrof said...

Dear chap Rainsford,

You brought up drug use and I remember you saying you wouldn't be posting on this site anymore. Yack (Jack) said the same thing. I don't keep track of posts so, unless you can prove it wrong somehow (going through every post you've ever written, then it will be hard for you to prove it. Therefore, dear boy, the impending victory you so badly yearn for will elude you once again. Sort of like Lennigan eluded the 10X2 mile mass of flesh eating ants. LOL!!

On guuuaaarrrrdddd Rainsford!!!!

Anonymous,

Quite right! Due to attacks that were getting very personal on WataugaWatch and the polarized, angry political climate we have been experiencing, I indicated that I would not be posting there any more (though I did leave open the possibility that I would return in the future if the climate returns to 'friendly').

But, as you indicated, I never made any such statement here on WataugaRepubs. I have not been posting here simply because I have been enjoying the first six seasons of the new Doctor Who.


Rico,

You made the claim. The onus is on you to back it up! How can one person fail so dramatically and keep on talking?

Yours Truly,
Rose Tyler

P.S. Defeat stings, don't it?

I beleive MikeD said he wouldn't be posting here either. It doesn't matter.

Rico,

Before this thread, my most recent post was March 4, 2012 1:36 PM. It had nothing to do with leaving the blog. As a matter of fact, it was me teasing Sark for not making a counter offer to the woman he saw abusing the food stamp system.

How does it feel to fail?

Yours truly,

Hussein Obama hammered the Supreme Court on health care yesterday. Where is John Boehner on this? Not a peep from the Republitards. This is how liberal socialists win so easily - they have NO opposition!

Stings, don't it?

General Zarrof said...

Rainsford,

Your stooping to the very person you hate. Do you realize I've pulled the strings enough so that you've lowered yourself (or heightened yourself in my eyes)to speak as I do. As a puppet master, I controlled you just like I did Watauga Watch and all the liberal slugs over there Great stuff and very easy!

Brace up old chap - the language you now speak makes you a direct action kind of guy. Perhaps you'll see that bouncing around the issue, beating around the bush all the time, only makes you look weak. Although you are still weak by definition, you don't seem quite the lurking slug as you once were. More like a slippery eel (not an electric eel - they are cool).

Don't quit the blog again or I'll be right again. LOL!!! Your ole pal.

I remember asking Sarah Dimmerman and Fizzle goes the Firecracker about aparteid in South Africa. They never answered.

Why did they take nukes away from South Africa a few days before aparteid ended? Any liberals care to answer that question? LOL! As I said before, they avoid that one like the plague. LOL!!

Guy, Thanks and I signed the petition.

Johnny Rico said...

LOL! Just got booted from a Yahoo blog after 12 short posts. That's all it took for liberals to realize I was in danger of shaping the entire conversation.

The article was about an MIT study indicating the world would use up resources by 2030 and collapse due to expanding populations and such. The article was quick to mention that green energy was the key to our survival. I couldn't resist pounding away at the idiots.

I asked the simple question to liberals "If the MIT study is correct, then you would seemingly support the deportation of all illegal aliens living in the United States because they use resources at an alarming rate, right?"

The death threats started immediately! At one time I had 20 posts on the thread. It's now down to 10 as they are removing them as fast as they can. Not one liberal socialist sheep was able to answer the questions or support their childish, emotional rants with facts or sound logic.

Guess I won again. I find that many blog sites are monitored heavily to prevent truth trolls such as myself from shaping the conversation. I have taken over several Yahoo blogs in the past by posting rapid fire, hard hitting facts and questions designed to activate the creative juices of fellow conservatives whilst pissing off liberals so bad they make fools of themselves. Until they started censoring, I was able to change the entire course of discussion with thousands of enlightened posters asking the right questions. Just like Watauga Watch, the liberals were unable to compete thus resorting to their usual tactics of censoring. LOL!!

Good times

Your ole pal

"makes you a direct action kind of guy" - Rico

Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky would be proud of you, Johnny, for recruiting direct action agitators rather than affecting change within the civil framework of our Constitutional Republic.

There are times to respect civility and Constitutionality, and there are times to throw it all away, right Reverend Jeremiah Rico? ;-)

MikeD, I remember now when you said you wouldn't post anymore on the blog. It was when we were talking about thee marriage amendment.

You last post to Rico reminded me.

I believe Anonymous probably has Mike D confused with GIG who did say (on the marriage amendment thread( that he wouldn't post here anymore.

Deport Illegal Aliens said...

Bloggers,

How about a thread on the Illegal Alien gangbangers that were arrested this week. Illegal aliens are a serious problems and Watauga County will now reap the rewards of liberals and RINOs who fail to recognized the problem of illegal aliens.

Johnny Rico

Lennie said...

100 million illegals and the left won't do anything but embrace more with open arms. Shut the borders and deport every man, woman, and child stealing my money!

Anonymous said...

A Muslim, Kenya citizen V. a Morman, former gov. of Taxachusettes for POTUS. Now there's REAL change!

Ann Rands said...

Right on Lennie. A recent FBI report indicates (what we knew all along) that 80% of Hispanic gang members are illegal aliens. That is an open invitation to reduce gangs by 80% isn't it? How hard is it to comprehend that we wouldn't have a gang problems if all the gang members weren't here! Not rocket science.

Yet Americans will want to take freedom away from you and I before they take action against illegal alien gang members at Watauga High School. Where are the county commissioners (not Vince Gable, he's cool), Virginia Fox, the state House and Senate on this? Oh wait, they are RINO Repuplitards who don't dare mention the illegal alien word.

America, you deseve this type of thing and I hope it happens more often to such a deserving population.

Johnny Rico said...

Anyone find it striking that liberal Democratic politician sheriff lynn hagaman (notice lower case) wrote a letter to County Commissioners a couple years back recommending that Sunday Hunting be banned in Watauga County, and now he utters not a peep about illegal alien gang members in his county threatening US Citizens?

This shows how much liberals, like Hagamen, respect our country. Let's get this straight - the idiot will spend time (on the taxpayer dime) writing a letter trying to limit Constitutional Rights of Americans, yet he remains eerily silent on actual, honest-to-goodness criminalal activity (illegal aliens) in his county?

Does this strike anyone as weird, treasonous, radical, wrong or simply depraved?

Johnny Rico said...

After the drunki illegal alien killed the family in a traffic accident on 105 a few years back, you would think a county sheriff would perhaps think about pressuring INS or Congress to do something about criminals (illegal aliens) in Watauga County. Not a peep.

Now we have illegal aliens becoming more emboldened each day, as amnesty draws near, to the point they actively threaten US citizens. Think that might spur liberal politician lyn hagaman (notice lower case) into action? Think again. It ain't gonna happen.

Here's how the progression of illegal alien integration into American society works: First it is the "hard workers" looking for a "better life"; then the underprivledged who need a little help via the social safety net; then a bit of criminal activity like gang violence and DUI deaths; and finally a full fledged subset of anti-Americans who would rather change the base values of our country than learn a word of English. After all they are taking THEIR country back from us, right? (I thought it was the indians who "owned" this country before us)

Your earning this coming plauge folks, so maybe it will actually be enjoyable to send you kids to substandard schools, pay welfare to those who hate you, pay for their medical care, pay a bunch to incarcerate them, and finally watch as they are chosen to attend colleges and universities over your children based on their skin color (racism anyone). Enjoy because it's coming.

Johnny Rico said...

Other than real life hero Vince Gable, what do the other RINO County Commissioners have to say about illegal alien gangbangers threatening violence against US citizens? Anything? That's about par for the course isn't it gentlemen? I am a stupid woman for even asking the question - you say nothing when Chetola and the Blowing Rock Country Club hire illegal aliens over American citizens so why would you care about a little LA style gang violence? Heck, it's a good lesson in culture for our kids to learn isn't it? Well?

I haven't heard the liberal socialist sheep Romney utter a peep about criminals (illegal aliens) in months. He won't get my vote. I'd rather the socialist Hussein Obama get it and screw things up big time than be stabbed in the back (again) by a supposed friend.

Mike D (Rainsford), have anything to add or did you wish to steer away from this one? LOL! Wimp.

Your ole pal
