There's a place for hate.

It's right here:

You can say or do anything you want on HateForum, except for kiddie porn.  Long time members refer to it simply as "Hate" or ""  Really old timers refer to it as "the wood."

I joined in 2003 and have been an admin for years.  The place is dying, but if you want to fight, you can still get one here.  Join up and check out the latest comments on  Members Only and Almost Everything Goes.  Attack those members.

Hate is where I cut my social media teeth.  God bless the place.

GO, and sharpen your skills!

Be sure to tell them that "John Hanner" sent you.

"I  believe I did not start any of that, but what was said to a friend irregular was dispicable.
That was by someone who used an f bomb directed at him.... who I know has the kindest heart and has helped this friend move, given him stuff, drove him far away places, etc.
He would never 'piss or shit on your site'".

Interestingly, my comments to other administrators contained your list of  legal stranger's kindnesses in my life and more: helped me empty out voluminous closets at the old apartment, talked me out of committing suicide one day, attended my mom's funeral (Christmas Eve), etc., etc.  I consider him a friend.

That's why he received no returns to his emails - I was stunned.  I mean STUNNED! I was sick for a week.

I knew that legal stranger occasionally commented as anonymous for years.  When I criticized him for it, he said it was "just for fun" and claimed that it helped our stats.  Anonymously insulting or attacking someone is not "fun."

So then a war of anonymous comments broke out on the JTI and we had to batten down the hatches to stay afloat.

I have to hand it to you guys: you put me in a moral quandary unlike any other:  Loyalty to legal stranger vs. loyalty to JTI. They used to mean the same thing.

I'm still trying to sort it out mentally, and I'm beginning to resent the amount of time this problem has taken from me.

I grew up learning that love means pain.  No more.

Comments are open.  Give me hell!

"The new Apple iPhone 6 Plus feature 'Introducing Bend"

I can't get my back to bend that far.


From Racine Community Media:


"Plaintiffs anticipate a trial lasting four to six weeks, while defendants believe the trial will last three to four weeks.

"The parties expect that they will request and will produce electronically stored information. Specifically, the parties may seek e-discovery regarding all computers, hard drives, data, notes, emails and text messages.

"Discovery will include written interrogatories, request for production of documents, including electronically stored information, requests for admissions, lay and expert witness depositions as well as third party discovery."

A Wednesday Grin

Some are old, but still really funny....

I was devastated to find out that my wife was having an affair but, by turning to religion, I was soon able to come to terms with the whole thing. I converted to Islam, and we're stoning her in the morning!
The wife suggested I get myself one of those penis enlargers, so I did. She's 25, and her name's Kathy.
Went to our local bar with my wife last night. Locals started shouting "pedophile!" and other names at me, just because my wife is 24 and I'm 50. It completely spoiled our 10th anniversary.
My son was thrown out of school today for letting a girl in his class give him a hand-job. I said "Son, that's three schools this year! You'd better stop before you're banned from teaching altogether."
The cost of living has now gotten so bad that my wife is having sex with me because she can't afford batteries.
A man calls 911 and says "I think my wife is dead". The operator says, "How do you know?" The man says "The sex is about the same, but the ironing is piling up!"
I was explaining to my wife last night that when you die you get reincarnated, but must come back as a different creature. She said she would like to come back as a cow. I said, "You obviously haven't been listening."
My wife has been missing a week now. The police said to prepare for the worst. So, I had to go down to Goodwill to get all of her clothes back.
The Red Cross just knocked on my door and asked if we could contribute towards the floods in Pakistan. I said we'd love to, but our garden hose only reaches the driveway.
My doctor was going down the checklist at my annual appointment and told me I need to stop masturbating. When I asked why, she said, "Because I'm trying to give you an examination."
I was told I had to go to a 'sexual harassment' class. I told them I already knew all that stuff.

What's on the Menu!

Sorry I didn't post anything yesterday I forgot all about it with all my different doctors calling to make appointments and then we had to take Drew's son to the doctor too.

I am going to share a very old family recipe with everyone today. I do not know all the measurements because my Grandma did everything to taste.

                                                                Bacon Spaghetti

1 medium box of elbow noodles
1 lb. of bacon
2 family size cans of tomato soup
onion powder
garlic powder
salt (optional)
bacon drippings

Cook the noodles then drain them. Cut the bacon in to about 1/2 inch pieces and fry them real crisp then place them on paper towel. Mix tomato soup and spices in a pot until warm and make sure it is to taste. Then add about 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings. When that is warm and to taste add noodles and bacon. If not enough sauce add a little water to it so it is juicy.

Like I said my Grandma did it all to taste. She made this with soup instead of sauce because my dad could not have the tomato sauces or juice. This is one of my dad's favorites so I thought I would share this one with everyone.

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my cupcakes!  How are you?  The weather has cooled just a little, but you see and feel it: fall is here.  I was looking at dried leaves blowing across a parking lot today.  This is too close to last winter.  We should get two summers for the winter we had.

Now for the really big news: I can’t tell you.  In my worldly travels, I have accumulated quite a list of high ranking leaders and businessmen as clients.  Some are very powerful.  Last week, one of my clients needed help.  Indeed, it was help with some black ops.  I was under the strictest orders of secrecy.  So secret that they wouldn’t even tell the Sheriff where I was or what I was doing there.  So no blog was posted.  I’m so sorry to all my regular and Irregular readers.  Trust me, one day soon this operation may be seminal to our continued existence on this planet.  Or not.  That’s where the dollars go.  They disappeared because “the project didn’t exist.”  And the sky is green.

If you’re alive to read this, you’re welcome.

Uh-oh, our indomitable Green Bay Packers face the scurvy Chicago Bears this Sunday, Sept., 21, 2014, at noon, at Soldier Field.  I know this is a special time for you, Tender Heart Bear, but my Screaming Psychics are gonna make mince meat of the Fighting Mongrels.  Fantasy and real, mixed.  Kill, kill, kill the Bears!  Then kick the Bears repeatedly in the head and torso.  I’ll hit them with a broom.

Thank you for coming by to check out my blog today.  Bishop Sheen is up for canonization (sainthood).  These are exciting times to live in.  I used to watch hour after hour of him on TV.

Will Bishop Sheen make it?  Find out:

I love you all and I hope you have a wonderful week.  I wonder if we’ll have Indian Summer this year.  Sextumvirate!

"City of Racine Official Admits to Illegal Cable Commission Activity!"

From Racine Community Media:

"Cable commissioner Larry Gregg admits to the Journal Times he has been serving illegally on the cable commission since December of 2013!!!

"The bigger question is, why does Journal Times reporter Cara Spoto choose not to report this incredible story? After all, she was there the entire meeting and covering the events, why no story or report of the illegal activity?"

"A Reminder To All County and City of Racine RICO Defendants…"

From Racine Exposed:

"... Which, in Layman’s language, means that the RICO Complaint has been accepted by the Court and that it will proceed to the next phase – which is that of Rule 26, or DISCOVERY. Rule 16 merely states that a conference between all parties will held first, to discuss how the DISCOVERY process will be governed."

New from Dearborn , Michigan.

 The latest toy has hit the shops... a talking Muslim doll.
Nobody knows what the f**k it says, because no one has the guts to pull the cord

Check the labels on your RXs

Yesterday I picked up a prescription that I've been taking for years.  It's a diuretic.  This pill has always been "teal," and is so labelled on the bottle.  Today, I took the bottle out of the bag to see light yellow instead of teal.  That didn't concern me, but the markings were also not as indicated.  Back to the pharmacy I go.  It's the right stuff, but "we use various distributors."  Oh, I thought, isn't that interesting.  All the other distributors used "teal" except for this one.  Again, an interesting fact!

Years ago, I picked up a Coumadin prescription for my husband.  Pills were the wrong color.  That time, they were double strength.  I also called the pharmacy that time. They had me come right back and return to the pharmacist, no one else.  This could have been a fatal mistake! (Coumadin is a blood thinner.)

My point is why wouldn't they use the appropriate label for this "distributor?" The answer flabbergasted me..."no one reads that stuff."  I beg to differ, I just did!

Always, always read the bottle label as well as all that paper they are required by law to provide to you.  It could save your life.  And, more importantly, don't be afraid to question the pharmacist.

"Sturtevant police have body cameras, other departments considering them"

From The Journal

"STURTEVANT — When Sturtevant Police Officer Bob Gelden starts his shift he clips a camera onto his uniform, then heads out on patrol.

“'It’s a great tool,' said Gelden, who has been wearing the body camera since about late April when Sturtevant received cameras through a state grant.

“'There is no disputing video evidence,' he said.

"In February, the Sturtevant Police Department received a $4,000 traffic safety grant from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, which the department used to buy 12 body cameras, said Sturtevant Police Chief Sean Marschke.

"Marschke said he thinks body cameras will become the norm in law enforcement.

"Mount Pleasant also has a few body cameras for its officers and has budgeted $5,000 to obtain more this year. Sgt. Jessie Metoyer of the Racine Police Department said the department doesn’t have them yet, but it’s something they are looking into. Caledonia’s chief said it is not something they are planning to buy at this point."

Local Loyalty - Malicki's Piggly WIggly on Washington Ave. Part 1 of 2

Welcome back!
Today, I have so much to share, 
I hope to be able to relay it adequately through words 
and do it justice.
I want to introduce you not only to a stand out, 
awesome store, but to the guy behind it and all he does. 
Ralph Malicki owns and operates 
5201 Washington Ave.
Open 6am-10pm daily 
Most of us grew up with this familiar, cute pig. 
I want to introduce you to a guy who does so much, 
but prefers to not take the spotlight. 
Ralph wants to help bring positive change to Racine.
When we sat down and spoke, I asked him what we can do. I'm only one person, he's only one person, what can we do?
He asked me an off-the-wall question - 
"How do you eat an elephant?"
I'm sure my expression was amusing, 
as these thoughts came to mind - 
"hmm, lots of tenderizer?"
"would it taste like chicken?"
then trying to come up with the right answer, 
all I could offer was 
"one bite at a time", which thankfully was correct. 
Yes, there is so much to do.
Yes, there is so much negative to turn around.
Yes, there is much need
If we don't start, if we do nothing but wring our hands,
nothing changes.    
If we do nothing but add to the negative voices, 
we're only hurting, not helping. 
Help your neighbors. 
Help those you hear of that have needs. 
Smile at someone when you pass them walking in or out of somewhere. Hold a door door for somebody. Such simple things can make the difference in somebody's day. 
"Do good"
"Start somewhere"

Ralph is very active in the community, with his time, his resources, and even his workers, who also are encouraged to be active in the community.    
Ralph was just honored for his commitment to the community, 
read about it from Racine County Eye - 

This is somebody I look up to and want to grow up to be like. 
May we all learn from, and try to be more like Ralph and others trying to bring positive change to our town. Look at all Beth David accomplishes. She, too, is just one person, but people are happy to help with anything she sets out to do.

If you live in a house that needs work, you work on it.
We live in a community that needs work. We all need to work on it.
Being negative and standing back pointing and criticizing will get us nowhere.  We need to be positive, or be quiet. 
Soap box getting put away, for today... :)
More on Malicki's Piggly Wiggly next week!

Yup. Happy Monday!
