The Stranger hits a new low...

A man responsible for the deaths of 3000 people is compared to James Brown. I didn't realize that mass death could be the subject of typical 20 sometings ascerbic "wit". I guess I was wrong.

Go take a long walk off a short pier Christopher.

Ecce, as you can see, one of the men responsible for 9/11 is James Brown. You can go back to being a Mormon homo on Dan's posts now. Oh, he hasn't been posting. Never mind.

Well at least Funk music is real, unlike the paranoid ramblings of rather daft nutjobs.

Posted by Giffy | July 6, 2007 2:28 PM

Hehehe. I like this post.

Ecce- how does one reconcile being gay and socially conservative? I imagine I'd become bitter and repressed if I had to deal with that everyday.

Oh wait... nevermind

Mohammed Atta was in "Farenheit 9/11" with Ben Affleck who was in "200 Cigarettes" with Dave Chappelle who was in "Undercover Brother" with James Brown.

911 Conspiracy Whackos are pathetic attentions whores who should all go jump off a really tall building.

I think Justin posts in SLOG as "Awful Troll."

Posted by elswinger | July 6, 2007 3:21 PM

uhhh answer: because the 9/11 truth movement is completely stupid?

Posted by truth | July 6, 2007 3:32 PM

The best thing about the 9/11 truth movement people are that they frequently label themselves and their cars in large letters that are easily read from 20 paces away.

If only other obnoxious, paranoid morons were so clearly labeled, I submit that the world would be a better place.

Scientific American had the definitive article on the 9/11 "Truth" movement, in which they debunked each and every paranoid theory these nuts came up with. It's always entertaining to hear them try and reconcile the amazing intricacies of their conspiracies with the obvious incompetence of the war.

Now, if you want an entertaining and crazy conspiracy theory, how about this: W is actually an old school communist, easily recruited as it would jab his father in the eye. He's intentionally collapsing the economy, widening the gap between rich and poor, and dismantling the American military. By the end of his term, the American people will be primed for the revolution, and the proletariat will rise, all thanks to W.

Isn't that much more entertaining?

I am not a conservative. In fact, I am quite liberal. However, apparently you don't understand that liberal does not equal being a fringe freak.

Just cause I disprove of bath houses and glory holes doesn't mean I am a republican. You "Big City Queers" need to get a freaking clue. Not every queer is a meth snorting, whoreing, bathroom sex having, freak desperate to prove himself to the world that he so desperately hates. Self hatred runs runs deep in those that are so shallow.

Some of us are open, have families, work for a living, go to church, are members of the PTA, etc... Notice I didn't say glory hole loving, "any port in a storm" ethic, and so filled with self hatred that the only way to live is by being the biggest freak imaginable. Spare me boys, I've been around the block a few times.

Gitia, interesting, would that make Cheney a modern day Trotsky then.

Personally, I think the simplest explanation is that our president is, unfortunately, a moron.

Posted by Giffy | July 6, 2007 4:21 PM


You argue like a conservative. You fail to take any replies into further consideration of your initial argument. Everybody on SLOG, including you, knows that you're bringing up frivolous shit right now to prove your point.

Glory holes @ Pony's already explained. They are there for the environment, which is not supposed to make everybody rip off their clothes and fuck, and they are barely usable. Don't know where you're pulling bathhouses from, but I honestly don't care. At first you argue with Dan on these topics because it offends you that he would go to these places seeing how he has a kid. (That, and he's-according to you-a landmark for gay parents and should behave accordingly) Now you're flat-out protesting these as if they should have no right to exist. You also do not make any fucking sense.

Furthermore, I am not an idiot. Sure, I'm constantly being a goober on Slog. Whatever. It's Slog. Please stop explaining the various types of gay's and how they behave differently. You're not filling anyone in on anything there. You're kvetching diversity in the gay community while looking down on it.

That's called bigotry, baby. Your disdain for Savage is ridiculous, too. If you think you can provide a more ideal 'gay family' to the world, then do it. You write the books, you run your paper, and then you can deal with all of the fags who flock to your comment board and criticize you and the way you live your life.

I'd say more, but why bother? You keep mentioning 'self-hatred' like its your fucking topicality in debate. The only self-hating fag I'm seeing on these boards is you.

And you're boring.

That is all.

The alternative in "alternative newspaper" refers only to being an alternative to a Daily ie: Weekly.

Ecce, whether or not you're conservative, you have a shit sense of humor. The post is funny. Or maybe it's a generational thing, and you're too old to dig this kind of humor. No one here thinks badly of James Brown. It's just funny to do the whole "separated at birth" thing. and it's funny on a few other levels too, but having to explain humor to retards is getting old. I had to explain another jokey post in the slog a few weeks ago. Why bother?

M. Poe @14: hear, hear!

Rather than poking fun at those who, after all the lies about Iraq and everything else, choose to view with skepticism the conspiracy story trotted out by our federal government within hours of the 9/11 attack, would you care to discuss the facts?

Posted by Phil M | July 6, 2007 4:52 PM

Phil M- No, I'd rather make fun of 'em. Especially Michael Tsarion. Have you read the literature? Holy shit. Begs nothing but ridicule. He may as well be saying George Bush is an evil wizard.

Posted by christopher | July 6, 2007 4:55 PM

@18, No. This is more fun.

That's a typical response from coincidence theorists.

Have you read [Michael Tsarion's] literature?

No, I've never heard of him. Please spare me the straw men. I suggest reading David Ray Griffen's 9/11 Commission Report: Ommissions and Distortions or Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory.

Posted by Phil M | July 6, 2007 5:06 PM

@13 Indeed Ockham's Razor does point to Bush just being fucking incompetent. It's fun to think about though, and if you tell Republicans that theory, their heads explode.

Posted by Gitai | July 6, 2007 5:22 PM

"coincidence theorist" is about as polite a word for a person as "evolutionist." I don't theorize coincidence or evolution. I look at the blatant truth and assume that sometimes, just maybe possibly, it's fucking true.

Posted by christopher | July 6, 2007 5:32 PM

I just outta curiosity followed the link for the book you posted. Is it a coincidence your side is selling the truth for $20 a pop while the people debunking your side give it away for free?

Posted by christopher | July 6, 2007 5:38 PM

It's a coincidence.

Posted by Mr. Poe | July 6, 2007 6:38 PM

Mr. Poe,

What about defending Dan Savage gives you such a boner?

I am a Bigot? Spare me. Wake up sweetie, theres a big world out there beyond the walls of the Emerald City.

Posted by ecce homo | July 6, 2007 6:50 PM

"theres a big world out there beyond the walls of the Emerald City."

Yah it mostly sucks.

Posted by Giffy | July 6, 2007 6:52 PM


Thanks for proving all of my points. (Which is pathetic...since I barely had any) You're good at what you do, Ecce, u good ate-it!

As for defending Savage, I really do not see how I was..especially when you consider my #2 comment. Defending the obvious, and harmless, decision to go out and have a drink? Even at a frisky joint? That's what I thought I was defending. Think what you want. Which you will--doesn't change the fact that you haven't said anything worth a damn.

I'm going out for a drink. It's Friday. That's what I do. Thank God I don't have a kid, yo?!
