Family, Friends ← Previous post Next post → Comments JTC Jun 19 2019 at 12:09 am Fading away you say? That’s…that’s coercion! co·er·cion /kōˈərZHən,kōˈərSHən/ noun the practice of persuading someone to do something by using force or threats. synonyms: force, compulsion, constraint, duress, oppression, enforcement, harassment, intimidation, threats, insistence, demand, arm-twisting, pressure, pressurization, influence Good job Muir! Pay to play baby! kadaka Jun 19 2019 at 12:27 am “Pay to play” would be Patreon. There’s quite a few artists boasting of their frequent and frequently NSFW Patreon postings (*cough*guigar*cough*) who yet can’t quite manage to post the two or so free “teaser” postings a week that are the main comic. JTC Jun 19 2019 at 12:32 am It’s the honor system of American Deplorables. Playing while others pay is…well you know what that is. kadaka Jun 19 2019 at 12:56 am The American income tax system? Willie Nelson was just on Tonight Show. Almost paper white, significant and frequent heaving (shoulders lifting up when breathing in). Song at the end of the show, seemed to be stumbling a bit, then the backup singer seemed louder and he kept along. Wikipedia mentions many bouts of pneumonia and emphysema, stem-cell therapy in 2015. JTC Jun 19 2019 at 8:41 am Income tax…not coercion so much as conversion, theft at the point of a gun. Willie? He faded away and has been transparent to me for years now. Ironically, didn’t his decline coincide with switching teams to the side that robs us after a lifetime of resisting the shakedown? kadaka Jun 19 2019 at 1:51 pm JTC, Nelson’s decline coincides with being born in 1933 and smoking something near-continuously for many decades. He’s always had a country Democrat vibe, Dems will save you from The Man. Supported Beto, sang a song with him last 4th of July. JTC Jun 19 2019 at 2:39 pm Yeah, his decline with me is way more due to that last part than with the years or the weed. Not a country (redneck) Dem anymore; due to my upbringing that’s what I was until ’round about 1980 when the scales fell from my eyes. These people are full-blown socialists (and worse) who have been allowed to appropriate that culture and hide behind that term…even what remains of old-school Democrats are shocked and scared shitless of them. And they are being enabled largely by their lackeys in media, academia, and yeah, entertainment. Lookin’ right at ya Willie. Stephanie Osborn Jun 19 2019 at 11:29 pm He’s only 86… kadaka Jun 19 2019 at 11:43 pm SocSec sez: “A man reaching age 65 today can expect to live, on average, until age 84.0.” JTC Jun 20 2019 at 12:08 am Eff that. I’ll be the six five in August and I’m done in ten. 75 is enough, plus the half-mil policy runs out at 76, so… Punta Gorda Jun 19 2019 at 9:57 pm Meanwhile, not on the news. https://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2019/06/19/democratic-staffer-who-doxxed-gop-senators-during-kavanaugh-hearing-sentenced-to-prison/ kadaka Jun 19 2019 at 10:54 pm Cool, Bradley Manning is currently in jail on federal contempt charges, maybe they can share a cell. Like they say, you never know where you’ll find your special someone. JTC Jun 19 2019 at 11:06 pm Surprisingly, the WaPo piece on that was featured on the MSN rotation at 8pm and it’s still there… https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/ex-senate-staffer-sentenced-to-4-years-for-doxing-gop-senators-in-kavanaugh-confirmation-fight/ar-AAD80tX?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=mailsignout Some kind of angle? Punta Gorda Jun 19 2019 at 11:44 pm Yeah, you can endanger the family and lives of capital hill denizens and only get a light sentence if you have the right party backing your efforts. JJ Jun 19 2019 at 1:33 pm Patreon is a horrible website that sucks money like a sponge. Thankfully I have avoided it. Stay free and loose Muir! You are the best. Now if I can figure out how to make my donation I’ll be happy. kadaka Jun 19 2019 at 2:06 pm Ko-fi is recommended, no platform fees (whatever that means). People could tip Chris $3 or so when the mood strikes, and possibly not notice how often they do it during a year. kadaka Jun 19 2019 at 12:17 am They’re fading out of existence! Not enough believe in them. Quick, everyone clap if you still believe! Clap, you deplorables, clap! T Paul Jun 19 2019 at 1:15 am Complete transparency is vastly overrated. TK Jun 19 2019 at 5:30 am If we were able to contribute with a debit card or Credit card, you would be a lot farther along. Chris Muir Jun 19 2019 at 8:23 am It always has.Paypal takes ’em. Wood Jun 19 2019 at 6:56 am Quick! Get George McFly to slug Biff Tannen! cmblake6 Jun 19 2019 at 7:00 am Look at that money bar! Come on guys and gals, this is what he does for a living! PaulS Jun 19 2019 at 7:53 am This happens once a year and we know it’s coming, I like to jump in early and envision the time when we, the loyal viewers, get this done in a day or three. One year I think we even pushed into the next year budget a bit. Let’s get this done so the useful content returns, along with the ongoing character development. I’d even miss the comments section, where else can anyone say that?! I don’t know how many viewers are here, but a little from everyone would have this done toot-sweet. TRS Jun 19 2019 at 8:35 am Every morning, make my 14 oz espresso, sit down at computer and open up DbD. Part of life. Now have just made second donation/subscription to try make up for all the slacker/slugs that are to cheap to pay for their daily entertainment. Come on guys. Pay to Play. Think money just grows in the poor guys bank account? Gus Bailey Jun 19 2019 at 9:05 am Hmm. A bit disappointing; however, a review of past campaigns has shown more honey and less vinegar. Chris Muir Jun 19 2019 at 9:12 am Did I mention the big wet t-shirt car wash scene coming up soon? Just Joe Jun 19 2019 at 10:09 am Ooooh, as in Cool Hand Luke? That scene is etched in my brain. Chris Muir Jun 19 2019 at 10:52 am Damn right, Cool Hand scene. DBD readers are simpatico, I tell ya. JTC Jun 19 2019 at 12:59 pm Except, way better looking than that washed-up (heh) blond! Punta Gorda Jun 19 2019 at 12:56 pm Sans T-shirt would. E better. The question is whether Jo will be clad in ice or enveloped in steam… Unca Walt Jun 19 2019 at 3:55 pm C’mon guys/gals. Epador Jun 19 2019 at 11:03 am I mail my checks on Friday. BTW maybe you could pander to Donald and Melania for a donation too? No, better not, the temptation to make her clothes transparent might be counter-productive. JTC Jun 19 2019 at 2:47 pm You know, some of us could make that approach to the Big D…after all, who/what has better promoted -and I am convinced even contributed to- the Deplorable agenda than the people and place known as DBD? Plus, he took in 50 Mil yesterday in the campaign kickoff! Keep America Great! Hell to the yeah. kadaka Jun 19 2019 at 3:30 pm Make fundraising great again, have a raffle. “For every 1 million raised, one lucky donor will win $20,000!” Any size donation $1 or more, you’re in, every unique donor gets a ticket good for the entire campaign. Dems will line up to support Trump, sounds better than Powerball. Now that will be a Presidential Popular Vote you can believe in! JTC Jun 19 2019 at 3:31 pm Well 30M not 50 but what’s 20 million among friends? Still, this right here does my old heart good, as much for the kick in the teeth to the commies on the left as the boost to the coffers of the KAG campaign. https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-raised-over-24-million-re-election-kickoff-2019-6 Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
