The DU d'RAT Review: The Question They CAN'T Answer

The DU d'RAT Review: The Question They CAN'T Answer

I said okay; let's just have you fill in the blanks:

1). "I have lost the right to ____________________".

2). "Because of this, I can no longer ____________________".


Verityink asks a simple question but gets no answer.

Read the whole thing.

I have asked that question many times. There is no response to that
line. Our new Community members Florian and Donal are off to good starts.

Watch out for Socrates.

nanc said...

why yes they are, beak and it's so good to have them here.

i've seen donal pose these questions and imagine her about to implode as lefties change the subject time and again. her diligence is unwavering and i applaud her for it.

the merry widow said...

G*D gifts us differently, and we also tend to be patient about different things. I also applaud Donal for persistence in the face of unwavering brickheadedness! Chipping away at some perceptions, while said brickheads busily keep bricking up the other side, soon they'll run out of room inside thier heads!

Warren said...

Blogger is acting screwy, my Email is acting screwy.

Nanc have you gotten my Emails of the last two days?, have you replied?

I'm getting some Email and notifications hours later or not at all and I haven't recieved some of the daily things I subscribe to at all.

Warren said...

As Miss Emily Latilla said "Never mind!

FLORIAN said...

Hola all! I just linked every one of you to my site. Donal was kind enough to give me EASSSY instructions. Now all I need to find out is how to link more. Apparently I get an error message after 4 links?!

nanc said...

something is rotten in the blogosphere, warren. for two days, beamish' site has taken forever to load. i didn't get your e-mails until i checked this afternoon. madze's links are not showing. i couldn't get here or there! but, all seems okay now.

thanks flo!

the merry widow said...

Don't feel bad Warren, mine was acting a bit weird too. I know, it's all the trolls, the internet is secretly conservative and gets upset with all the troll droppings!
Beakerkin, you're going to have to change your avatar. Instead of a weapon of medium range destruction you need a jazzed up version of the dreaded "troll abortion" vac!

Warren said...

Florian,
In your link for "Always on Watch" there are two forward slashes after ".com//", remove one of them, republish, then try again.

I'll post this on your blog also in case you happen across it first.

FLORIAN said...

Done Warren. Don't know how that happened. Thanks.

nanc said...

who's the man?

the merry widow said...

I'm ready for bed, pleasant if you please!

Always On Watch said...

Warren
Blogger is acting screwy, my Email is acting screwy....I'm getting some Email and notifications hours later or not at all and I haven't recieved some of the daily things I subscribe to at all.

I've been having trouble for days. I'm getting double notification of some comments, but no notification for other comments. I also lost emails from my Yahoo group.

The problems seem to be restricted to my Yahoo accounts.

Did Blogger do some kind of update? The last time I had problems with email notification, the problems were with my AOL acounts.

I also had some trouble getting Beamish's site to load, and for a brief period of time, no Blogspot site would load, no matter which browser I used.

**Sigh**

Things have been normal today, for the most part, but I don't know about those missing emails.

nanc said...

warren - aow - when i go to beamish it goes to the point of 1 item downloading and then nothing! it just stays there until i get frustrated and go somewhere else. he probably thinks we're ignoring him, but it's been nearly two full days of this!

Warren said...

Everyone is telling me that they have been having troubles with blogger.

Blogger is owned by Google who also owns Gmail which I use for comment
notification by having it forwarded to my Email account.

My ISP has been notifying me for a week that I might have Internet and
Email problems as they upgrade and they won't have the last of the Email
upgrade done until next Friday.

I don't know which problem is caused by whom but its beginning to get on
my nerves!

Excuse me AOW, I didn't realize that you had posted to our blog. I thought you had sent an Email and it got through.

Hope springs eternal!

LOL

Always On Watch said...

I think that the problems with Blogger began around the time that the little wheelchair appeared. Makes me wonder if there's a glitch involved with that little addition.

nanc said...

so now we're ALL handicapped?

MissingLink said...

I couldn't access some of the blogger's sites today as well.

I got to DU d'RAT Review though with no problems.

the merry widow said...

Those were the problems I was having yesterday Nanc! Frustrating! And last week I was incommunicato for nearly all day! Got your e-mail this morning Warren, and replied! Anyone hear from Jacob lately? I know he's job hunting.

tmw

nanc said...

i've seen jacob out and about last night - p.c. problems also.

the merry widow said...

Thanks Nanc, you don't see someone you ask! BTW I'll bet the little wheelchair is to let you know that they are the handicapped!

American Crusader said...

Blogger is apparently in a constant state of slow lately. Sometimes it's almost impossible to post.
You're right about not being able to answer that question. I'm sure the left has many answers for the first question but unless they want to admit to criminal activities or at least immoral activities, there is no answer to the second.

nanc said...

yahoo's not right either!

MissingLink said...

I used to have blog on blogger it was called voxfelisi
I decided to get rid of it because it was getting slower and slower and also I didn't have all that much controll over the templates, layout etc.
Novertheless, as soon as I closed the account, a porn site appeared under this name in a couple of days.

Warren said...

Missinglink,
The porn site thing happens to almost every blog that's deleted.

The Beak and I were linked to a porn blog for a couple of months before we knew about it!

LOL

FLORIAN said...

I've been having problems with logging in too...and the server is slow as Christmas. I wonder if Beak and Warren had increased traffic due to being linked to porn sites? How did you guys find out?

nanc said...

which reminds me of a story...

nanc said...

warren - when i went to reply to one of your e-mails, i got an error so forwarded it to the other and it will come to you as an attachment - my p.c. scans outgoing messages for viruses, so the attachment is safe - it's just your e-mail with my response.

Always On Watch said...

A terrible day here in Northern Virginia. Have you heard? See any D.C. newspaper's web site for the shooting at a police station.

Always On Watch said...

Exact link. For several hours, we thought that two shooters were involved. Only one, though, and he's dead now. Also dead is a female police-detective.

Always On Watch said...

Not my neighborhood, but still...

nanc said...

aow - i keep my tele tuned to fox news ALL day and i heard nothing on this - terrible. our world is becoming terminally ill with the worst kind of cancer. only one cure in sight - we must keep looking up ^ ^ ^!

Warren said...

Nanc, reading your post, I had to go retrieve them, (the Emails). Sent you one from there.

Retween blogger and my ISP, I missing all kinds of Email.

Warren said...

FLORIAN said...

" I wonder if Beak and Warren had increased traffic due to being linked to porn sites? How did you guys find out? "

No, they weren't linked back to us. The old site was deleted and the porn site was put up at the old URL.

Warren said...

Florian,
Did you get a chance to shoot that 40 over the weekend?

Warren said...

Good night everyone.

FLORIAN said...

Hi Warren! Nanc! Slowness on the blogger this day. Who would've guessed?

American Crusader said...

Blogger is almost worthless today. I was unable to even comment on my own site earlier.

the merry widow said...

Was completely offline for 2-3 hrs. What is going on? is it the NSA checking us out? is jb driving the internet bonkers? has the swamp thing returned?

tmw

nanc said...

yeah, well i'd be willing to bet none of you were caught in the grocery store for a half hour as what appeared to be a tornado type storm moved through town, with torrential downpours, thunder and lightening and the sky turned black as night - and lived to tell about it!

nanc said...

yeah, what about that? that, AND the computer acting goofy? huh, huh - top that! see the hair on my avatar? that is not far off base when the weather gets like that!

the merry widow said...

Good grief, Nanc, everything alright? Don't go messin' with those storms, bad for your karma! Not good for the buildings or vehicles either! Your youngun's okay? It's that time of year, Dear Lord one more thing to pray about!

tmw

nanc said...

yeah, well i know the Weathermaker and He just likes to keep me on my toes. i took the little rig to town and there was high water rushing everywhere! i absolutely abhor grocery stores and stores altogether so being stuck inside one after i've paid for my groceries was excruciating. i - i - i'll be okay...

VerityINK said...

Warren--Jeez, I'm FINALLY able to get a note up here--what's up with Blogger and the 'Net today? I'm about to get out jungle drums... (Dis-U would just tell me to capitalize 'em...)

Thank you so much for putting up my question! How kind of you and Nanc! Beak, you're very encouraging to Flo and I--the whole gang of you certainly know how to welcome folks! What a boost! ;-)

Warren about the instant edit icon--I tried to fix it--already had *$BlogMetaData$ tag in Template's 'head' section, and the $BlogItemControl$* in my template per the Known Issues help here....

Flo--I, too, found out we have to type in our templates EXACTLY...it won't work with extras....

Nanc--are you ok after the storm? When sis and I took our 'Grand Tours' of America ('92,'93,'94), we took the month of May off and traveled--through Kansas,OK, Ark, Missouri, IL etc. to get to the east coast... We always had to be VERY careful of the weather, so we weren't caught out on the interstates....saw plenty of tornadoes and black skies just like you describe. Of course, Denver's warm weather was like that, too. The cold air of the mnts. and hot air of the plains met right over the city and gave us plenty of lightening, storms, and 'nados.

VerityINK said...

Nanc--why do you hate stores? Grocery stores?????

nanc said...

donal - i've always pretty much hated shopping and a condition of my marrying my schweetie was that he do all the shopping when able - well that's kind of hard with him being 150+- miles away through the week.

the only shopping i've ever enjoyed was my twice a year trips to macy's with my oldest daughter when she was younger, but i haven't been to macy's in about 10 years.

yes, it's that time of year here. i don't mind it, but hate being out in it!

nanc said...

oh, and before i forget - warren, fern has the best article up on racism at his site. he even invited brownie over specifically and he's yet to show up.

the merry widow said...

PTL Nanc, find you guys again after all those months and to lose the reason for my fan club's existance would not be good! I know you're in good Hands, but I really am sick of goodbyes!
Flo and Donal- We are always happy to have good neighbors move into the community! Glad you like us too!
Potlucks are really cool if Warren, Nanc and Mr. Beamish do up some roadkill, variety is good for you.

tmw

FLORIAN said...

Nanc glad you made it out of the store safe and sound. I hear you and I are up for some nasty weather tomorrow too! Hail, rain, tornado's perhaps....Gotta love living in the south this time of year.

nanc said...

flo - we are on top of one of the highest mountains within about five miles and see quite a bit of weather action from here and although have seen tornados, have yet to have an actual tornado right here - have had some very high winds that nearly bend the tips of very tall trees to within a few feet of the ground. God is with us so we don't worry.

FLORIAN said...

"God is with us". Amen to that Nanc. Nothing keeps me more secure then knowing my Lord is looking after me.

Warren said...

VerityINK said,
"Warren about the instant edit icon--I tried to fix it--already had *$BlogMetaData$ tag in Template's 'head' section, and the $BlogItemControl$* in my template per the Known Issues help here...."

blogger is screwing up on their end.

Over the weekend, I made changes in this blog that should send comment notifications to a different Email addy. I did it twice just to make sure I did it correctly but the notifications are still comming to the old address, (when they come at all).

Lets wait until blogger straightens itself out and if your instant edit still isn't working correctly, I'll dig into it.

I have no idea what's wrong with blogger, I suspect a large denial of service attack, (and blogger isn't saying). I use Google for a home page and Goggle is running slow as well. Goggle owns blogger.


"Flo--I, too, found out we have to type in our templates EXACTLY...it won't work with extras...."

Html, or any kind of computer language, is very unforgiving! You can go blind from looking for mistakes!

Now wear did I lay down my glasses??

LOL

nanc said...

warren - i'm copying that pdf to print out - wish me luck! oh my, here it comes - yippee - i'm not a p.c. dummy after all! it said i needed to add a component, but when i tried it didn't do anything, so i just cancelled and hit the print and voila - five pages! this probably seems like so much pablum, but believe me - i'm just cutting my internet baby teeth - so no laughing!

Warren said...

Nanc, I'm sure not going to laugh. I had to learn this stuff without any help and they just keep changing it around without asking if I care!

:^)

Warren said...

I'm going offline. My wife needs some computer help.

If I don't finish in time, Good night all!

nanc said...

well, i guess they just haven't heard that you ARE THE go to ASK guy! hope you're feeling rested. as for me - i had a nap today so am as chipper as a nearly 50 year old who's had a nap today!

the merry widow said...

I agree with you there Nanc! Warren is entirely to nice to be such a help like he is, it's people like I've met in this community that have turned into a real blessing! We all need moral support, it's good to be able to find it. Now I better stop before I get mushy all over your blog! That low ya'll have coming tomorrow will be or not, "sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof..." and it might not be as bad. We just get to breathe smoke!
Night all, don't let the cyberbugs bite!

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

This was a good one Warren. I have reposted it on my site.

FLORIAN said...

Anybody know about Donal's blog? It's been deleted!

nanc said...

i saw that flo and sent her an e-mail. hope it's not an attack.

VerityINK said...

Try this--I got wiped--for those of you who have linked to me on your pages, you'll have to put in this addy..... Somebody write over there, so I know it works--and pass the word, please!

http://thedudratreview.blogspot.com/

VerityINK said...

Warren--who all do I have to notify to make sure everyone has my correct addy? eBlogs, members, you all? And how do I best do that?

VerityINK said...

Change the link to my article you very kindly posted, please:

http://thedudratreview.blogspot.com/2006/05/question-they-cant-answer.html

VerityINK said...

Hey, gang--this is a real-life web cam at Mt. St. Helens here is WA state. Cut and paste--and save it--and you can view it anytime. We get some beautiful shots of it!

the merry widow said...

Hey all-WND has a story about a bill before Congress about changes to the internet, no neutrality included.

tmw

VerityINK said...

OK, GANG--I'm tired of fooling with old address, here's a new one:

http://dudratreview.blogspot.com/

WARREN: Please change the link to my post above:

http://dudratreview.blogspot.com/2006/05/question-they-cant-answer.html

Sorry for the inconvenience--and please PASS THE WORD!

nanc said...

i may have sealed my fate with the dr. at autonomist, warren...

donal - your link works fine - i didn't have to change my link to you at all.

VerityINK said...

Well, I changed the name slightly and the URL...

FLORIAN said...

I didn't have to change my link either! Yippy! And I've had no problem getting to longrange.

Warren said...

We have only the very finest links!

:^)

I suspect that Verity's problem was actually with a blogger server.

nanc said...

i made it!

warren - i sent you an e-mail.

Warren said...

Nanc, I sent you one back!

:^)

nanc said...

this is too funny - when this blog was missing for so many hours i told jacob that you probably went out for cigarettes and wouldn't be back!

i replied to yours.

nanc said...

goodnight everybody!

F.B. Jones said...

Sorry I am late. I guess he came back.

F.B. Jones said...

My blog was acting nutso a few days ago. I could not get on anywhere. It seems to be fine now.

nanc said...

yeah - he went out for smokes and remembered just how pitiful i am and returned...

John Brown said...

Sambo Warren the Injun Killer,

I've decided to extend the olive branch olive branch.

nanc said...

hmm - a slam AND an olive branch all at once - does your generosity know no bounds, brownie?

F.B. Jones said...

This guy is WAY classy.

nanc said...

warren - could you please have another look at my next post as a html tag issue came up and i don't really know what that means - thank you - nanc

Warren said...

I'm sorry nanc, My bad!. I forgot to save it after I fixed the tags.

Try it again it should work now.

nanc said...

thank you, warren - flo has posted brownie's questions - should be interesting - and btw, i didn't know what ALL the hubbub was ALL about, but went and viewed the nasty article he slammed you on - shame upon him. he's not right.

Warren said...

FB, yea, he's way too cool for this blog! ;^)

Didn't mean to ignore you, just too busy for my own good.

Elmer's Brother said...

jb doesn't deserve the time of day from a guy like you warren

FLORIAN said...

What's with the racial epithats that JB is using for Warren? What's his beef?

FLORIAN said...

Hey Warren! Speaking of Indians, what tribes are you descended from? I love Native American history.

Warren said...

Florian,
Lets just say I outted him.

I believe that he gets off sexually posting his vile crap in the same fashion that an obscene phone caller does.

He's also pretty stupid, I called him, "Juan Mancha de Mierda" Here. I'd been calling him that for a while and evidently he didn't know what it meant, (I think he had it confused with macho) LOL. I "invited him to never post at my blog again and I usually delete every post he makes, as soon as I become aware of it. I left this one up for a reason I won't go into here.

He really hates the fact that I delete his posts. I also delete the posts he makes at AOW. In fact he hates it so much that he uses extortion to try and force me to let him post. (you saw the Klan watch thingie).

You would have to dig back In Beamish's archives to see how it all started and frankly I doubt that it's that interesting. He's just a troll with a mental problem.

I'm somewhere around a quarter "Cherokee" (Tslagi), so is my wife, she also has some Apache blood.

I know quite a bit of Cherokee lore. A lot of it I didn't realize was actual Indian lore until I grew older and read some of the same stories my grandfather told me.

There is more written on the Cherokee than any other Indian nation.

A very large percentage of the American population has some Cherokee blood, (Beamish does, Rob Bayn does). That's why I sometimes call Beamish cuz, (cousin).

I'm not an Enrolled member of the Eastern or Western Bands, nor would I be, I do qualify. My wife and son are applying for Enrolment in the Eastern Band, that's their choice.

Some Indian lore spans the tribes, the ghost dance, the corn busk, (green corn), dance, the Thunder Bird. The contrary warriors were a warrior society in many plains and western tribes. (Hince Nanc's avatar), ;^)

I have some pictures of my Indian great grandparents and grandfather burried back in the archives, (they look just like dark complected hillbillys) :^)

I find tribal lore very interesting myself.
