ghare: Mrtraveler01: david_gaithersburg: Twice in two years? Really? Ok, I just feel sorry for you at this point.

So the Tea Party didn't cost the GOP the Senate in both 2010 and 2012?

Dude, you are talking to a true sociopath. Stop arguing with him and ask him to get the help he needs, before he ends up in an institution.


Aww, but I was having fun in reminding his of the epic failures of the Tea Party movement.

Sociopaths don't see any need for "help" and don't want it.

Sociopaths only live to destroy.

Chicago style hot dogs are great.
Detroit style "chili dogs" are great.
Western New York texas hots are great.
New York style hot dogs are great.
Hot dogs are great.
(All personal opinion, of course.)
If you like hot dogs then do yourself a favor and try as many different styles as you can. You might just be surprised to find something new that you like.

Moosecakes: Oddly when I search for news about this hot dog guy, the only stuff I can find is conservative sites. So can anyone confirm what really happened? Or is this another one of those fake conservative things? Like that guy who attacked a union guy and then was pushed down himself, and he went on national tour in a wheelchair.


Or maybe because it doesn't fit the template of the liberal media.....?" If you filter for truthiness based on the messenger, regardless of your political beliefs, then you're a major koolaid drinker.

"I've forgiven the people who broke all of my stuff. I've prayed for them..."

Sometimes God just has your back," he said. "For this to happen to me, one of his most grateful servants, is just a blessing.

He's showing me that he's looking out for me after this tragedy. I am excited and Lord knows I've wanted to get a new cart..."


Yeah? And where the hell was he while this "tragedy" was happening? Let me guess, "will of god," right? Well, if it was the will of god then did you thank him for causing the tragedy? Hmmm?

Fake conservative thing.

First they tried the comedian/reporter/blogger gets beat down thing - until the rest of the video showed he was the aggressor.

Then they tried the 'union thugs tore down the tent with women and children in it' - until video proved the 'union thugs' were not union members and there were no women and children in the tent.

Lastly they tried the 'black man beaten and called uncle tom' thing - except the guy was never hit and his stuff was in the tent that was involved in the previous story and most of the money raised for the guy came from union members.

To top it all off - every one of these stories happened near, in or on top of the Americans for Prosperity tent - the Koch Brothers grass roots organization. AfP only provided all the food, beverages and $25 gas cards to it's attendees and their 'benefactors' stand to profit tremendously from every weakening of worker rights in this country.

Shocking coincidence?

Nope, they took out a safe GOP candidate in DE who wasn't conservative enough and put in a candidate who was so conservative that the majority of folks voted for the Democrat instead.

Same thing happened in Indiana in 2012 as well as Missouri.

I mean you guys could've had the Senate in both 2010 and 2012...and you BLEW IT!!!

There are also reports of the Koch-funded conservatives untying the tent restraints so the tent could conveniently fall down when union members were nearby and on camera.

The guy was contracted by the pro-right-to-work people to serve refreshments; they paid in advance for several hundred hot dogs, and handed out coupons to people who wanted them.

In exchange for a probable payoff (that is not proven but these things are usually done on a cash basis), a bunch of punk thugs attacked him, beat him up, destroyed his business, called him a ni**er, an Uncle Tom, a scab, and numerous other unpleasant names.

It was pretty much done because he was 70 years old, had no weapons and could not defend himself. I got serious doubts those yellow bellied cowards would attack an able--bodied man.

Goddman dude, cry more. This is why much of America regards the right wing as a bunch of whiny crybabies anymore. They take out of context quotes and drive them into the ground. They think failure is success. I, for one, would like to see the President co-opt Union thugs to beat the shiat of more conservative hippies, just like Nixon did in the 1960s. If there's one thing most everybody on Fark can agree on, the right needs a good ass whooping to make it see reality and get back on track.

It's been over a year now, but when I worked and studied in Lansing I'd buy my lunch from Clint. Extremely nice guy. We'd typically shoot the breeze while I chose my hot dog. I can't believe I missed this story, or that this happened to him in the first place

Other Detroit/ Michigan originated hot dog brands:

Koegel Meats, Kowalski Meats, Winter's, Deaborn Sausage, Greenfield Village, and the classic Ball Park Franks.

It's all about the right combination of snap, salt, and texture. If the dog does not have snap, it's worthless and deserving of scorn.

His cart was not on-site, Linda said.

She estimates the equipment losses totaled at least $500; other losses include supplies, condiments, coolers and food. He crawled out of the tent.

Tarver, who is black, was also the victim of racially-charged verbal attacks, his wife, Linda, said."
