    No, wait…look how much he’s already got! He’s going to pass Chunky today if this keeps up.

    $2,685 of $5,000 goal
    Raised by 73 people in 1 day

      Good for him. Gus is an idiot but I think he’s really in need. And he’s not vicious and hateful like Chunk0. I hope he lives free of suffering for the rest of his life.

    • Arachne says:

      Notice that only two or three of the donors are “Anonymous.”
      Makes you wonder why Fatso’s donors are PRIMARILY anonymous.
      I’m not going to feel bad for him. Just about everyone forced on ACA is in the same boat with $5000 deductibles.
      He was offered several jobs here and didn’t grab any of them.

    • kingkuffa says:

      I just donated to him while mentioning DoD. It would be interesting to see if more donors are from here or LGF, but considering how Chucky’s GoFundMe’s page is doing I think we all know the answer to that.

      • Arachne says:

        Waiting for Fatso to now manufacture a health crisis (after all, vehicular crisis didn’t work) to up his donations to the Cheetos and Mountain Dew fund.

    • Pakimon says:

      A couple of things.

      A few folks here are not thrilled about the idea of mocking Gus about his “medical” problems.

      I wouldn’t mock anyone with legitimate medical problems but with Gus it is different because he is parlaying normal aches and pains that we all have into some kind of crippling malady with the express purpose of avoiding actually supporting himself and instead leeching off of anyone stupid and gullible enough to fall for his bullshit.

      I myself, have numerous aches and pains from smashed knees, broken toes, crushed knuckles, sprained neck, etc. yet I take aspirin, work through the pain and make a good living.

      Are there days when all the body damage incurred during my lifetime causes enough pain that all I want to do is lay on the couch and spew nonsense on Twitter all day?

      Sure, but then my self -respect and dignity take over and goad me to get off my ass and get to work.

      Second thing.

      Even if Gus’ gofundme page hits its $5000 goal, how long will it last?

      Given Gus’ penchant for booze and weed (as demonstrated every night in the sidebar) that money will be gone in an instant.

      The only plus side is the shadenfruede I will feel when Gus gets booted out of the current garage he’s squatting in and out into the street.

      To put it bluntly, people who donate to his gofundme page probably do not realize that all they are doing with their kind-hearted gestures is enabling Gus to be an unemployed, leeching, Twitter addict.

      Then again, maybe I’m completely wrong and this will put Gus “on the path”.

      The Twitter sidebar will tell the tale.

      I’m betting on a few weeks of hilarious and semi-coherent tweets 24/7 as Gus blows through the $5000 purchasing copious amounts of assorted drugs and booze followed by plaintive bleats about how he’s broke and living in a cardboard box. 😆

      • Octopus says:

        Of course you are right, Pak. Much as I’d like to see the bum clean up his act and begin to mend his shattered existence, the chances are remote. He’s been this way a long time. The money will only enable him to subsist a bit longer in the same dingy fashion.

      • Bunk x says:

        Gus has legitimate medical problems, and those aren’t his fauIt; on the other hand, his financial problems are. I suggested he set up a GoFundMe page to fix his gimp leg years ago, but he wouldn’t do it.

        I don’t know who set up his GoFundMe page for only $5000. That seems to be the magic number for deductible emergency care for the uninsured as stated upthread, yet that amount is chicken feed. If you’re going to scam GFM, scam big, but that didn’t happen, so I assume it’s a Twitter fan who set it up. Gus has a sister and a brother or two, and one of them is a lawyer IIRC. His own family won’t pitch in?

        Either Gusano’s family is filled with insensitive assholes, or Gusano is a major league dickhead with serious medical & finacial problems. Occam says….

    The trolls (or their operators) understand how damaging it is when someone as respected as Morgan Freeman puts his name on the line.

    Firstly, the Russiagate thing is dead and buried in the real world. It was an op from the start, designed to deflect attention from Shrillary’s incredible face-plant. Get with the times, kids.

    Second, Freeman is not a “respected person,” to people who follow Hollywood news. He dated his step-granddaughter for years, an open secret in Hollywood. That woman was fatally stabbed to death in NYC a couple of years ago, after the affair reportedly ended. Not saying Morgan did it, but she’s not saying anything, either.

    Freeman also did that awful voice-over for Shrillary at the convention. Remember that crap? Geesh!

    People from both sides are aghast that Freeman has made such an idiotic statement. 😆

Clearly Irish descended, Catholic, dark eye brows, cat eyes, thin lips. She would wear thes tight fitting shirts. I’m like OK I’m just not going to notice. And I’m going to act cool.

No, this is not a possible romantic prospect, Fatass! Just showing you that you can’t tie your massive unpopularity to your medical problem, when other people are being elected prom queen despite being paler than paper.

    Dear Unky Stan,
    Thank you for the birthday card and the $20. I know someone that’s going to the bazaar tomorrow! Anyway, things are fine here, thank you for asking. I am studying very hard so I can graduate and got to college here in Tehran. I met some college students and they are a lot of fun. They are planning some sort of camping trip in a couple of days at the American Embassy. I didn’t know they had camping there! But it’s apparently a formal; one of the boys is bringing his dinnerjacket, whatever that is.

    Anyway, I hope that answers your questions! Toodles for now!

    Your best gal pal Val

        That tree was just a sapling when Jesus was walking around with his buds. Nobody thought much of Tule, back then. Just another youngster, waiting to get cut down, blown down, or burned up in a fire. Tule said, “No.” He was going to hang around awhile, and see what happens.

        That was fun and a blast from the past. It’s a series of vamps which is why he has to count in the horns for each segment. Because he wants the option to extend each. In the studio, of course they would have simply known how many bars to count. In the original they had the strings and the cool flute. A full studio orchestra. Can ya dig it?

          We had a cool band director in High School who re-scored pop songs like this. He wasn’t “hip” by any means, but he knew what he was doing. We played this one, alongwith other songs with heavy brass sections.

    A small refresher:

    WillS68 | September 22, 2017 at 1:03 pm
    A small refresher to put things in context.

    ’08 “the most transparent administration in history” takes office.

    ’10 complaints start rolling in that the IRS is “slow-walking” conservative groups. Later we find that the IRS-IG confirms they did this and used “inappropriate criteria”. Lois Learner is found to be using an off the books email address in her dogs name to prevent FOIA request from finding her communications. Further Ms. Learner is found to have used I’M to communicate as the records were not retained.

    AG Holder was found to have been using a fictitious, off the books email for communications – which, like Ms. Learners, could never be found.

    Sec. Jackson was found to be using an off the books email in the name of her dog and she was so proud of her dogs EPA email profile that her agency awarded “him” an ethics award.

    Sec. Sebulis was found to be using an off the books email address which like the folks mentioned above kept her information from the media and the public. You can’t FOIA what you don’t know exist.

    CIA & DOJ testimoney, this year, let us know that in ’09, ’10, ’12, ’13, ’14 & ’16 the Obama administration was told directly thar Russia was using cyber-warfare to spread propoganda stories and per the Congressional testimoney the WH did nothing. Well, they did have Sec. Clinton present Russia with a “reset” button. Pres. Obama did tell the Russian ambassador to let Putin know after the ’12 election he’d have more “latitude”. Pres. Obama did laugh at Gov. Romney during a ’12 debate when the Gov said, “Russia is our biggest geo-political threat” and good OL’BHO yucked it up by ssying, “Mitt the 80s called and want their policy back”. Pres. Obama did invite Russia to the table in the negotiations to dispose of Syrian chemical weapons and even had them at the table during the Iran Nuclear negotiates! Oh, and Pres. Obama took no appreciable action as Russia took part of the Ukraine.

    Sec CLinton didn’t just use and off the books email address she owned the server and her staff had unknown email addresses connected to it. Fact is Sec Clinton had her IT guy appointed to the DOS and while he was being paid by the US Gov he was being paid privately by Sec Clinton and neither one of them disclosed this relationship as required. Further Sec Clinton allowed classified material to be migrated to a non DOS agency (Platte River) that lacked a security contract with the Gov and had not a single employee with a clearance. Although there’s so much more on the Clinton debacle I’ll end with the fact that from that cluster-phuck we learned that Pres. Obama has actually exchanged emails with Sec Clinton through her private server and that like Learner, Holder, Sebulis, Jackson and Clinton good OL’BHO also used an unknown email address that would have kept his communications from FOIA discovery and away from the Pres. Records Act.

    Now we have the unmasking and everything associated with it yet the media still pretends BHO was the most honorable, wonderful, magnificent guy ever to hold the office!

      Geez, didn’t that happen to your twitter account after you asked Gus if he wanted a cash paying job a few years back?

      If he rejects your kickstarter contribution, he will be just like Johnson who, years back, rejected DoD member contributions to his kickstarter fund.

      It’ll be fun to see what Gus chooses, a 6 pack and smokes from Bunk or squat from LGF.

    Okay, so I step outside of the garage to take a leak and have a smoke and I see the neighbor’s cat in the yard. That doesn’t bother me much because the cats keep the gopher population down. But then I see the neighbor’s yappy little kickme dog, Sophie, a black and white chihuahua asshole, and she starts barking at me. I told her to shut up.

    The cat had a WTF look when asshole picked up a turd the size of a large half-smoked cigarillo. I stared silently until the dog dropped it on the walkway. It shut up, dropped its tail and just kinda backed away. I was in the process of setting up a figure-four box trap when the missus led the little asshole back to our neighbor’s house.

    Wow Goodell, you are about as tone deaf as they come.

    Then one of the Washington Redskins (who has obviously been hit in the head a few times too many) tells the sitting President of the United States to “stay in your place”.

    Neil Young was one of the first Classical Rock pioneers to embrace punk rock. Like Bowie, he understood the angst and energy. Some of Neil’s songs make great punk songs.

  48. Octopus says:

    Most of Neil’s songs make great covers, in the hands of the right interpreters. Nils Lofgren is an underrated artist who never quite made it on his own, though he became a valued member of the E Street Band for a long time. He played with Young early in his career, and played on some of his best songs. I’ve always liked his voice.

    • Octopus says:

      Nils had this song expressing concern about the health of Keith Richards, back in ’76 or so. Nobody thought the then-heroin addicted Richards was going to last. Now, you think he’ll live forever, like Lestat. 😆

      Lofgren put out this amazing acoustic set that is beautifully produced a few years back. Listen to the guitar! 🙂

      Historical Artifact:

      Keith don’t go (ode to the glimmer twin)

      “Keith don’t go” is probably one of the best known songs from Nils. It is always a part of any Nils show, and it is just as good acoustic as with a full band. It is well known that it is a homage to Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. There are several stories and theories out there regarding the background for the song. It is probably best told by Nils himself *1):

      “Back in 1973 I (Nils Lofgren) was touring England with Neil Young in the “Tonight’s The Night” band. It was an intense, crazy, and beautiful musical adventure for me. I have always been a passionate Rolling Stones fan and Keith Richards remains one of my greatest musical heroes, so he was a topic of frequent conversations on the tour, especially with Englishmen and women. Dozens of people kept claiming to be Keith’s close friend and regularly expressed grave concern for his health. I didn’t think most of them knew him as well as they claimed, however, it got me thinkin’ about the extraordinary inspiration and contribution Keith has made to all our lives through his music. I had a great, dark musical riff that I needed to write lyrics for and realized it would be a good musical foundation for a piece about Keith. Thus the song “Keith Don’t Go” was born. It is intended to be a giant thank you note to Keith on behalf of all of us fans. The ominous chords and melody, were also a great backdrop to implore Keith to take care of his health for his sake and ours and to continue sharing his great gift with us all.
      Written in 1973, the song first appeared on my first self-titled solo album. In 1975, an electric version produced by the great, late David Briggs who also produced Tonight’s The Night and was on that tour with us. In the late ’70’s it appeared on Night After Night, a live double album and I sang “Keith Don’t Go, back to Toronto…” alluding to his trial at that time. However, this was years after the initial composition.»

      What Keith thinks of the song is not something I have been able to dig up, Nils has met Keith a couple of times (according to Nils), but the song has probably not been a topic of discussion. Nils have mentioned that friends of him have talked to Keith about it *2) but in that interview he does not mention whatever Keith’s reaction to it was.

      Talking about The Rolling Stones there have also been stories about Nils auditioning for a place in The Stones when Mick Taylor left the band, some say that “Keith don’t go” ruined his chances since Keith did not like the song, but in an interview Nils talks a bit about joining the Stones *3)

      “Is it true you almost replaced Mick Taylor in the Stones?
      I wouldn’t go that far. What happened was when Mick quit, as the No. 1 Stones fan, I literally drove my car over a median and sped home to call The Rolling Stones to audition. I didn’t know them; I was just a stupid young musician. Halfway home, I realized, that should be Ronnie Wood’s gig. I knew Ronnie a bit so I called him. He said they offered him the job but he turned them down to stay with The Faces. But he said, ‘If you’re interested, Keith is at my cottage trying out guitar players.’ He gave me a number and I called it — and Keith Richards answered. I couldn’t believe it. He didn’t know me, but was totally honest and open with me. He said, ‘Yeah, we want Ronnie but he won’t do it. I’m frustrated.’ He said the whole band was going to audition guitarists at a cattle call in Geneva or some exotic city and if I wanted to come down, no problem. Then, within the next week or so, Ronnie changed his mind and took the gig. That’s the whole story.»

    Detroit’s own Bettye Lavette did a very soulful cover of “Heart Of Gold,” as she has done on many classic rock numbers.

    Okay, Sparty’s getting mollywhopped by the Irish. Time to move on and prepare for the Lions vs. Falcons “showdown” tomorrow. What? The godforsaken Lions presume to challenge a Super Bowl team favored to go all the way this year? Silly talk. We’ll be lucky to score a FG against such a juggernaut. And we have the best FG kicker in the league. He might need an 80-yarder, this week.

    Chunky and his Leftist Overlordts agree that the fat kid planning and promising to explode an H-bomb in the Pacific is superior and more admirable than the POTUS who tries to dissuade him. Says just about all you need to know.

      Stephen Colbert is nearly as dimwitted as Charles. And both wouldn’t know humor if it slapped them across the fat mouth.

    • dezes157 says:

      Colbert is a raging torrent of unbridled hate, is almost as funny a chainsaw massacre of a few hundred puppies and dumber than a sack of doorknobs, of course Chuck wants to be ass f**ked by the fascist creep.

      • Octopus says:

        That was a good post, Deze. 😆

        Youse guys who don’t pull any punches regarding Fatass don’t always get the approval warranted. It’s appreciated by me, believe me. I post stuff all the time and it would be more than redundant to keep hammering Chunky with the sledge, but the rancid turd deserves every forceful squashing. And more.

    Gus, you know I love you. But I can’t. Not this time. You know why.

    The toldya Gus was gonna get all effed-up this weak-end with GoFundMe dolors.

    Chuck really needs a wake up call.
    Report the creeps abuse and harassment as often as possible.

    It a beautiful Sunday morning and time for NFL football!

    Today, the Jaguars are in London to play morning game against Baltimore Blackbirds Birds of Color!

    Which Jaguar team show up today, the dominant Game One version or the trainwreck Game Two version?

    We shall see. Hopefully they’ll remember good game plan and not be forgetful like these Jaguar cheerleaders!

    They in such a hurry to catch bus to Wembley Stadium, they forgot to get dressed!

    Heh… Pakimog say it remind him of old Benny Hill Show episode! 😀

  56. Pakimon says:

    Also on tap, The Eagles play at home against the NY Guy-ants!

    Should be good home opener for Eagles!

    This cheerleader all ready to hit beach after game!

    Pakimog just hope that all this running to beach isn’t eroding her sammich making skills! 😀

    I cannot wait for the end of professional sports. Was there ever a bigger bunch of ungrateful shitheads as those a-holes now playing football, basketball and now baseball.

    All smart enough to do anything but read the printing on the ball.

    All making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year for seasons that are only about nine months long. Many, making millions of dollars. – some making many millions.

    And they are protesting against our men and women in uniform that are out there trying to do their jobs.

    They can all go to Hell as far as I am concerned. I predict this is going to backfire in the worst possible way and it cannot happen soon enough.

    • Minnowredux says:

      more divisive bullshit from seeds planted by our first black president. The uppity morons in national sports are protesting in support of the dindu nuffin, pants down thugs who are dealing drugs, killing each other and others. Dey inDIGnan…

    • rightymouse says:

      They are typical of the left. Whiny crybabies who think that disrespecting patriotic symbols of America somehow make them morally superior. Bunch of babies.

  58. Octopus says:

    This might be a good day for me to tune out the NFL. Lions getting exposed by the Falcons early. Could be a very long day.

  59. Octopus says:

    Thanks, Ace.

    Moochelle’s stupid progressive re-education program in America’s lunchrooms was universally unpopular, even in liberal bastions. Everyone’s relieved it’s over. 😆

    Lions have tied the game, heading into the fourth. No Sunday nap for me. Just stress.

    Man, do I want this game. Why do I care? It’s a form of mental illness, for sure. You would think 60 years of futility would have learnt me a little something about Lions football. 😯

  62. Octopus says:

    The Lions just got fucked for the millionth time. I’m done with the NFL.

    This cheered me up. 😆

    A momentary flash of lucid self-reflection. But he did just retweet one of his patrons’ tweets calling for donations to his Sterno-fund.

    • Minnowredux says:

      I ALMOST gave some money to Gus. Very close to doing so….. then I thought, nahhhhh….dude is a douchebag and got himself in this place all by himself.

      Then I thought, instead I will donate to Charles – who REALLY needs the money worse than Gus.

      So, I did.


  66. Minnowredux says:

    By the way, take all of Gus’ information, all of his wit, and all of his photoshop skills and add it all up…..

    it would be worth about $17.22.
