RFT readers show no mercy for weak-kneed liberals, Gary Kaplan or Milton "Skip" Ohlsen 

Man up, Democrats: So this smoking ban is turning out to be like health-care reform, both of which are completely watered down and an ineffective means to deal with a real problem ["Latest Hole in County Smoking Ban: Bar Owners Would Follow Honor System," Chad Garrison]. So I guess the rule is when the Republicans are in charge, they get to do whatever they want, and when the Democrats are in charge, the Republicans get to do whatever they want. Grow a fucking backbone, liberals. Stop cow-towing to these assholes.

Moo!: Yes, liberals, Dean is correct. If you continue to hook cows up to tow trucks, you'll find very little is accomplished at the end of the day.

Acid makes the ride so sweet: All this fuss over LSD is anti-drug propaganda and nonsense ["Newlyweds' Honeymoon Trip (on LSD) Ends Badly," Chad Garrison]. My granddad used to use it with no ill effects. In fact, he said passengers always commented on how smoothly he drove the bus when he was using it.

Let's party down: I wonder how many people would file a petition on their money, knowing that they will be persecuted and put in jail for such a crime ["Feds Let Online Gamblers Lay Claim to BETonSPORTS' Founder Gary Kaplan's $43 Million, Beginning Today," Kristen Hinman]? Hmmm, and what happens to all this money if no one, or few people, claim true interest in it? Well, it goes to the state. This means that one man can make a difference. Gary Kaplan has ended the recession. Someone should thank the man!

That's the $64,000 question: I'm one of the 1,400 employees from BETonSPORTS in Costa Rica. I wonder if there's a chance that we get our severance pay?!

Time to pay the fiddler, Skip: Squirm, Skippy, squirm ["Milton 'Skip' Ohlsen — The Man Behind State Sen. Jeff Smith's Possible Downfall," Chad Garrison]. What a useless excuse for a human being. Oh, I know there is more to this; you just can't make this shit up. I tried to tell him he would be spending a lot of time in court and that he would be in the paper, but when I did, I didn't realize that it would reach this extent. Poetic justice, I say. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy. You reap what you sow, they say, and Skippy is looking a lot like Johnny Appleseed. See you in 30 years or so, Skippy. I am sure you will be missed, not. I hope he rots in jail. Don't drop the soap, Skippy boy.

Oh, by the way ...: Skip, are you going to get married while you are in the joint, or is your celly going to pimp you out for smokes and candy bars?
I love you skippy, via the Internet

Let's make a deal: Sounds like all smoke and no fire. It's so obvious Ohlsen's trying to cut a deal by rolling on somebody, anybody, in hopes of getting a lighter sentence. But who would believe a word he says? I can't imagine Jeff Smith resigning over it.
