Coming Soon...
We've all seen those
commercials with the
little white writing at
the bottom of your TV
screen that are so
small and against a
light background that
it is almost impossible
to read. Well, we are
going to bring you
some of the funniest
and ridiculous
ones out there.
Our Town Report and
Angry Artie have
parted company. I'd
like to say he will be
missed but I do not
want to lie.
Don't let the door hit
you in the ass on the
way out, jerk!

Homosexuality Is A Lifestyle Choice and Has Nothing to Do with Civil Rights
By Jack Ryan
"I may have the genetic coding that I am inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at
the homosexuality issue the same way." - Texas Governor Rick Perry

I couldn't agree more with Governor Perry. I don't believe homosexuality is anymore of a civil; rights issue than is alcoholism.
I further do not agree with any of this nonsense about giving homosexuals the right to enter into same sex marriages or
adopting kids. First of all, Marriage always has been  and always will be between a Man and a Woman, period. Secondly,
homosexuality is not normal no matter how those who have chosen this lifestyle try to convince us it is, and innocent children
should not be subjected to this lifestyle choice.

Of course, the progressives are trying to shove this nonsense in society's face. They tell us how what difference does it
make if homosexuals love each other? Who is society to tell who a person can love? So I guess that these same knuckle
heads feel that a person who loves their pet should be able to marry it? Do they also feel it is okay for a woman who loves
her dog should be able, as a couple, to adopt a child?

Just take a look at what is going on in our society. There is actually a school in New York City, just for kids who identify
themselves as lesbian, gay and trans gender. This seems like nothing more than indoctrinating these kids into this abnormal
lifestyle. Lets try to give our kids a good foundation to enter our society and not play into this deviation. If they decide to  
practice this deviate lifestyle when they adults, then that is their choice. It should not be supported at the cost to the
taxpayer. If their parents want their children to be educated in this lifestyle, then it should be handled in the same manner as
those parents who want their children to receive religious education then they should pay for it themselves.

Customer service is out the window and what were once kids' jobs have since become
adult careers! Take the Poughkeepsie Journal News Paper for instance....
By Jack Ryan
As some people may have guessed by now, sometimes small things just piss me off. But, here's
the thing, small things to some of us are just that; small things. To a disabled person, what we
consider small things are sometimes insurmountable. I have a friend who's health has been on
a downward slide for the last several years and who's latest medical debacle is that his leg had
to be amputated above the knee and has left him confined to a wheelchair for the time being.
For the most part, thew extent of his going out consists of doctor's visits several time a week.
So as to protect his identity, I will call my friend JX. He decided to get the local paper, The
Poughkeepsie Journal delivered to his home. When he placed the order, he explained his
dilemma and asked that instead of delivering the newspaper to his driveway could it be left on
the front porch. The person on the phone, eager to make a sale, of course promised the paper would be left at the front door.
After taking his credit card, the person once again told him that the paper would be at the door.

For the first week, the paper was thrown in the driveway. He called the customer service department and the apologized
profusely and promised to rectify the problem. For the next two weeks, it was hit and miss; some days on the front porch,
others in the driveway at curbside. JX's wide called for him and explained that the man is handicapped and cannot get up and
down the driveway to retrieve the paper. The moron on the phone says to her "Are you disabled too? Why can't you go get
the paper from the driveway for him?" His wide demanded to speak with a supervisor but was told she would have to wait 24 to
48 hours for one to call back. At that point JX told his wife to just cancel the service. Low and behold, someone call back
immediately and tries to convince them not to cancel. This person goes on to suggest that their front porch may be too dark
and says that the front lights have to be left on. Reluctantly, JX agrees and begins to leave on the driveway light. Now this
newspaper was costing him even more to be delivered.

This worked for a week or so then he went two days with no delivery at all. This was not the first time then paper was not
delivered but it was the straw that broke the camel's back. JX called customer service and told them he wanted to stop the
delivery. They, in turn, turned his call over to a retention specialist, we assume, named Ray. Of course, at first, this guy was
so sweet on the phone that a diabetic would need a shot of insulin just to talk to him. When Ray saw that JX was done and no
longer wanted the paper delivered, his entire attitude changed. First he wanted to know who lived with JX and if they too were
disabled and why didn't they go get the paper from the driveway for him. When JX explained the arrangement he made when
placing his order, this Ray informed him that these are motor routes cub side only. JX stopped the paper.

Now, I have some words pf wisdom for this Ray guy....Just who in the hell do you think you are there spunky? How would you
like it if somebody spoke to a disabled relative of your the way you spoke to my friend? What in the hell gives you the right
Obama discussed the Rioting and Looting in Ferguson, MO, today, at a Press
Conference...Oh Boy!!!
By Jack Ryan
President Obama held a press conference to discuss the mayhem going on in
Ferguson, MO? Why is the President of the United States of America  involved
in a riot that is happening as a result of a shooting? Why isn't the President of
the United States calling for the arrest, conviction and prosecution, to the
fullest extent of the law, of these rioters who are looting, burning businesses to
the ground and attacking the innocent public? Why is the President of the
United States sending The Attorney General to Ferguson? Why isn't the
President Showing support for the Police Department instead of a Pot smoker
accused of robbing a convenience store and assaulting a Police Officer, rioters
and looters? Oh, that's right! The accused shooter, a police officer, is white and
the pot smoker, rioters and looters are black.

Of course, the regular circus is in Ferguson, Sharpton, Jackson and the new black panthers, fanning the flames of racism.
They are crying in the streets that this is all due to racism. They say Michael Brown was shot because he was black.
How about waiting for an investigation to be done? You know why? It's because if an
investigation is done, "people" like sharpton, jackson and the new black panthers would have no way to get their foolish
faces and names in the news.

The president even mentioned the high amount of black and latino boys incarcerated. This upsets him and some in the
black and latino communities? Hey, if you'd like to cut down the number of your boys being locked up, teach them how to
obey the law, respect authority, and respect other people. Teach them that they have to work for what they want and need.
Lead your children by example. Loose the entitlement mentality. Don't accept drug use. Make your children attend school
and respect their teachers. This isn't just directed at the black and latino communities, it goes for all, black, brown, white or

Making excuses for anti social behavior by the parents of these thugs is not acceptable, never mind by the President of the
United States. Criminals are Criminals and should be prosecuted, not excused.

In March, 2015, the Saint Patrick's Day Parade in NYC is going.....
By Jack Ryan
   FROM THIS:                                                              TO THIS:
That's right, the organizers of the NYC Saint Patrick's Day Parade have caved to pressure from deviants and are
allowing some gay group to participate under a "Gay Banner". Thankfully, The Catholic League has pulled their
support and are refusing to participate in this in this queer assault on a NYC tradition. This is no different than
allowing the KKK to march in the parade under their banner while wearing sheets and hoods. It just shouldn't
be permitted.

The Catholic League as well as Catholic School Marching bands have been staunch supporters of this NYC parade for
decades. No one has ever tried to stop gay people from participating in this event, even though they were the ones
responsible, on a number of occasions, for pelting the front doors of Saint Patrick's Cathedral with condoms filled with red
paint. The one thing that wasn't permitted, until now, was marching under a sexual preference banner. This type of banner
has absolutely no place in such a parade. This was the argument last year when they tried to make a mockery of the parade,
but parade organizers held fast to their ruling and refused to allow it. Because of this, NYC mayor deBlasio refused to
participate. Who cares if he did or not?

Well, the Catholic League is not marching in the parade and I truly hope that the Catholic and Christian marching bands as
well as participants also refuse. I can tell you one thing, the parade will not be watched on TV in my home and, as well, I
refuse to support any sponsors of this parade.

No one has tried to destroy gay pride parades or the village debacle every Halloween. Why the gay community thinks it is
their right to disrupt other people's celebrations is beyond me. They say they want to be accepted in society well here's a
thought, stop being Jerk Offs.
