I like the cut of your jib. We should keep you. +5 inbound to counteract Martin being his usual nasty dickhole self. [B-o]


That -5 from Bart might have jealousy for Martin scooping the nut job label. :lol:

I see there's at least a couple of unCanadian folks around a site that's supposed to be Canada kicks ass. Curious, but noted. So are Bart and martin the only dickheads who feel threatened enough by the new guy to slam a red square as a welcome or should I expect to meet some unCanadian retards here?

Offensive? No, but stupid, certainly!

You know what's really funny? That the guys on this show are fakes and sold out for money - not all that long ago they looked like this;

Jace, Missy and Family

Image

Willie, Korie and family in 2000

All this down home, aw shucks country crap is made up - and millions of suckers swallowed it hook, line and sinker.

I have little doubt that this entire 'controversy' is nothing more than an effort by A&E and the Robertsons to attract attention, drive up ratings and make even more money.

It certainly worked - before this happened, I didn't know anything about the show or these guys.

But it still won't get me to watch this show, as it looks like nothing more than 90210 for the flyover crowd.

WTF! 8O :lol:

Robertson's comments struck me as very tame compared to, let us say, the Westboro Baptist Cult--I mean, Church. I am reasonably certain he was not advocating violence against homosexuals, just stating his beliefs and we can all simply dismiss him.

What I find more amusing is that I believe the "progressives" are going after him because a white, Christian male is the low hanging fruit. Though I do not recall any specific examples at the moment, but there are Muslim clerics that are public calling for violence against the LGBT community and the progressives respond to it with silence because they do not want to be called "islamophobic" or "racist."

I'm "unCadian" too, but don't ask me why I'm here, long story. Now I'm stuck here, although I do remember some of the posters said I wouldn't last more than a week or so. But look at me now, threatening people with swimming pools and all, if that isn't a heart warming story for the holidays, I dunno what is.

First off, this has NOTHING to do with you


Just as I run the risk of your commenting on my posts so, too, do you run the risk of my commenting on your posts. It's how these interwebz forum things work.

So you bring up completely unrelated stuff?

I don't know if you have noticed in my almost 50,000 posts here, but I usually do not bring old shit into new threads, or even threads into others.
I may have messed up 1 or 2 times, but I make it an issue to not do that.

You can attack my posts on a particular thread on THAT thread, that is fine. I respect that. I say stupid shit once in a while too.

This thread? Meh, don't see why you selected me to take your lack of coffee on a Monday-morning out on.

Your pools mean nothing to me or my Island in the winter rainy season. You might as well try and overheat someone with a hairdryer in Death Valley!

Hi. :D You creeped Marty so I creeped you and I see you are 26.
That means most of these guys have already forgotten things you haven't had time to learn yet. :)
So there Mr. High and Mightypants! :D

$1:
Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson and his family believe they have been ‘hung out to dry’ by TV network A&E after he was suspended for homophobic comments made in a magazine interview, MailOnline can reveal.

Sources within the close-knit Louisiana clan say they are convinced A&E are manipulating the controversial situation to bring them – and particularly Robertson – back into line after Television executives grew tired of the family pushing their deeply-held, Christian beliefs.

They also think the network could have done something to stop the controversial GQ article being made public, because an A&E representative was present during the interview with patriarch, Roberston, 67.

A source close to the family, who asked not to be named, told MailOnline: ‘You have to ask yourself, why this interview happened and why it ever became public. Someone from A&E was there and was aware of the kind of answers Phil was giving.

‘But despite that, they didn’t ever try to stop it or control it. Instead, they let it hit the headlines and then released a statement condemning it.

‘It is our belief that they knew what was going to happen and then used the situation to exercise control over Phil.

‘It is our understanding that when the TV executives came up with the concept for the show they wanted it to be a case of people laughing at a bunch of backward rednecks.

‘But when it didn’t turn out like that and people actually started identifying with the way the family behaved and were laughing with them, not at them, they became uncomfortable. It did not sit will with the New York TV types.

‘We believe they were also uncomfortable with the family’s insistence that there would be a strong religious presence in the show. They knew Phil was the driving force behind this and we think they have used this situation to bring him in line so they could steer the show back down the path they originally intended for it.

‘But they may have underestimated how united the family are and how committed they are to their beliefs. They also didn’t realize how much support Phil would get from the public, so things have backfired on them.’

[snip]

But on Thursday the family issued their own response which suggested they would be prepared to walk away from the highly lucrative reality show, which regularly pulls in more than 12 million viewers.
They said: ‘While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.

GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz was first to condemn him, saying: ‘Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil's lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe.
‘He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans — and Americans — who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples.’

But Cruz’s views certainly aren’t reflected in the family’s home town of West Monroe. The Robertson’s are absolutely loved and revered in the deeply religious north-western Louisiana city.
The family were already wealthy before their reality show, making their money from the Duck Commander business which sells hunting equipment. Phil Robertson lives in a huge gated compound on the edge of town and his son Willie owns a gigantic lakeside property.

They have employed dozens of locals for years and now their empire has grown, they provide even more jobs to the town’s people. That has cemented their popularity and since the homophobia scandal broke, a number of make-shift signs have been constructed offering backing to Robertson.
On Friday cars honked their horns in support as they drove passed one erected on the edge of town.

Their presence in West Monroe is inescapable, with billboards and posters celebrating them everywhere. Last weekend, around 30,000 people packed the downtown area for the ‘Duck Commander Christmas Parade’. People travelled from all over the country to celebrate the festive season with the family, filling every hotel room in town.

Phil’s son Willie owns a massive downtown restaurant, which is always packed and there is a huge gift store just down the road, constantly filled with fans, eager to get their hands on Duck Commander merchandise.

The controversy that has engulfed the family this week has done nothing to put a dent in business, if anything it has given it a boost.

The Madrid family drove two hours from Alexandria to show their solidarity and snap up some trademark duck calls for an upcoming hunting trip. Mother-of-two Kimberly said: ‘We are Christians and we completely support Phil.

‘This country has a proud history of freedom of speech and I believe Phil is the one who is being persecuted, because he has lost his jobs because of his religious beliefs.

‘The spokesman for GLADD said Phil wasn’t representing the people of Louisiana, but I don’t know one person who is not behind him. We will not be watching A&E again.’

Another customer, Bernard Wolleson said: ‘I think you would have to get out of Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas and Alabama to find anyone who does not support Phil.

‘I am supportive of religious freedom, regardless of the faith and that is what is at issue. They knew he was outspoken when they hired him. What he said may have sounded crude, but I believe his intent was right.’

Just days after the scandal broke, rather than hide away; Phil Robertson went to his local church, White’s Ferry Road church to take part in a prayer meeting.

He is actually a very prominent elder there and his parishioners are completely behind him. On Friday Church secretary Luanne Watts told MailOnline they had been bombarded with calls and emails from American’s showing their support.

She said: ‘What has happened is a blessing. Phil believes in the word of God and he will not shift from that.

‘We have had hundreds of messages from people all over the country and I think out of all of them only one email has been negative.

‘I went to school with his boys, so I have known him for years. He is a great man and his faith is the most important thing in his life. He is here every Wednesday and Sunday, to give sermons, or take prayer groups. He will be here this Sunday as well.

‘We are all completely behind him. You will struggle to find anyone in town who does not support him.’
And that view seems to be held by many Americans. On Thursday MailOnline revealed Walmart had sold out of their money-spinning Duck Dynasty range.

The Robertson family has a merchandise empire that is estimated by Forbes to be worth about $400million - and their deal with Walmart makes up around half of this.

The chain sells a huge array of Duck Dynasty merchandise- from T-shirts to camo bedding, posters, watches, toy trucks, camo chairs, clothing, jewellery and even bottle openers.

Walmart announced at their annual shareholders meeting that the best-selling item of apparel for both men and women this year was the reality show's T-shirt, according to Forbes.

Forbes writer Claire O'Connor said: 'When I was down in Arkansas for this Walmart meeting, you really do marvel at the amount of people who are wearing these Duck Dynasty T-shirts and hats.

'There are kid’s pajamas, there is camo bedding and you probably won't be surprised to hear that they sell Duck Dynasty prayer devotionals.'

Aside from their continued commercial success, an online petition called #IstandwithPhil demanding Robertson’s reinstatement has already attracted almost 140,000 signatures.
