A Montanan man was sentenced to six years in prison yesterday for forcing a cell phone down his girlfriend’s throat.

Perhaps the women failed to ensure that her call was carbon neutral.

You think domestic violence is funny ??? Something to joke about ??

Posted by: Nbob | 2007-03-08 6:51:48 PM


Nbob,
I don't find domestic violence particularly funny. Still, why are you asking that question? Why do you see it as relevant?

Posted by: h2o273kk9 | 2007-03-08 7:06:02 PM



This story might be funny, but we don't know enough about it make that assertion. I can visualize a couple of scenarios that would be hard to keep a straight face with.

It's a slap-stick type of story and we have always laughed a good slap-stick right back to the road runner and the hapless coyote. So Nbob, relax you are a bit too intense on this. meep meep!

I agree with Nbob. The story is about an assault on a woman and violence against women is all to common in our society. There is nothing funny in this, and the posting is offensive.

Dude,

So NOT cool.

LindaL,
"There is nothing funny in this, and the posting is offensive. "

Why would you find it offensive? The post clearly points out that the offender is now behind bars.

"The story is about an assault on a woman and violence against women is all to common in our society. "

True and thank you for pointing this out. There is far too much violence against women in our society. And far too much violence against men as well while we're on the topic of domestic violence.

"the posting is offensive" -

Why not call it "hate speech" and lock the poster up for a year or two? After all, we all have a right not to be offended, don't we? It's somewhere in the Charter - or will be when a "Judge" finds it hidden between the lines.

obc: Oh, I find that offensive. Take it back right now. There is no place for sarcasm in this world...it is all too common in our society...

This is the Western Standard folks. Any opportunity to milk anything (from a car crash to a cat stuck in a tree) for a pot-shot at climate change or Quebec will be leapt upon in brief 'read about it here [link] fashion. If the woman were beaten to death and set ablaze they'd say something like "... and David Suzuki was right there offering carbon credits for her emissions." Then, when they're called on their nonsense they cry the blues about freedom of speech, libertarian justice and western sovereignty while accusing you of being a gay communist shill for Stephan Dion or the Hisb'Allah.

If I gambled, I'd bet $5 that someone here will immediately go down a rabbit trail about how communists, and muslims beat women so who am I to talk about them... Sigh.

Anyway. All that to say I'm tired of watching the vomitous one-sided landslide of crap that is this blog, so I'm just blocking it from my browser. Thank God for Directory Access.app for the mac. I think I'm going to go and listen to a day's worth of NPR podcasts to clear my head.

Markalta -

I won't take it back - and you can't make me!

So does this mean we won't have to bother with the likes of Steve Tsuida any longer? Hip. hip, hooray!!!

Now that right there is hilarious, Steve.

Ciao, I might actually miss you.
You were starting to show some potential.

Well, er, I hate to be pedantic but actually, the only one here who actually brought up communists and muslims beating women is, well, um, YOU!

Please don't deflect the dialogue towards your agenda.

Alack and alas poor Stevie is tired of vomiting and so has taken his bat and ball and gone away never to return.

He could be missed if only we would stop aiming at him so well.

To the over sensitive and continually offended Leftists who slum here, this blog may be a bit raw, but there is humor and satire and parody and wit.

You cannot say that about the leftist sewers that are called blogs. They have mostly hate, envy and (pardon the spelling) Schadenfreud. That is why so few on the right bother to visit you. Plus any comment at all gets us banned for life.

I'll take humor anytime and there is no topic that can not be subjected to humor.

If you take out humor, you have either socialism or Islam.

Why does the headline say Montanan? If you follow the link you read that he is from Kansas City, Missouri, which is where the case was tried. You can also find pictures of the perp and the victim, who lokk pretty much like you would expect.

I'll bet if it was a man that choked on Fido,the jokes would be nasty and we all would have a good laugh.I am glad he got 6 years,he was brutal. There was an item in the paper the other day about a fellow who had the unpleasant experience of having his crotch flambeed while he was sleeping. I work in a very PC gov't job,but the jokes were flying,fast and furious.

Wallyj
No doubt you are correct. I noticed that the devine LindaL didn't see fit to criticize Left_99 for calling Western women...sluts.

But then, he is of a protected minority.
