Nazi geese, I love that!

Sounds like a good movie. Thanks, Tracy, for always elevating the discussion.

Hey, Tony--
maybe we should have a movie club? Except the trolls would only want to go to the Strand Up...

Not Chuck--he would go to some intellectual shit.

I bet he'd like Big Sonia...

Is it legal to even fly drones in Overland Park? I found that odd...

Phyllis Jones said...

I actually saw this movie last weekend, and it was a great event. That Big Sonia is unstoppable!

I don't even need any tailoring done, but I just wanna go meet her at her new shop.

Lots of buzz about this film. It's about time something good happened here.

Is Peter Newman the guy who was that little six year old boy on the boat in the New York harbor, seeking asylum?

JoCoPost said...

Yes, that boat somehow made it thru the U-boats across the Atlantic, but then was denied to let the Jews enter America. They sat in that harbor for six months until some government bureaucrats relented.
They knew that sending the boat back to Germany meant certain death.

So Peter Newman, the little boy, became the radio talk show guy, now Saturdays on 98.1 KMBZ.

Technically, he calls himself a Holocaust survivor, tho he was not interned in a death camp--like Sonia Warshawski was.

Both are great Americans...

It's amazing that among all the dreck on this site, I occasionally learn something or I am uplifted.

Kudos to Tracy.

And it's a Christmas miracle that the trolls have shown some respect today, and not written anything disrespectful.

We all still falling for that 6 million story ?

JoCoPost said...

5:22? Well, there you go.
Yes we believe it, because it is true.
I defy you to go see the movie, Big Sonia, and then start with your smug ignorant narcissist sociopath rant. I defy you to sit with Sonia Warshawski for an hour when she visits with the prisoners at Lansing Prison, or the teens.

I pray for the day when WikiLeaks busts open the anonymous comments on TKC. or even the day that tony grows some balls and looks you up and reveals your chickenshit anonymous identity.

Because there ARE limits to the first Amendment. And I believe you are over the limit.

Because then we will
a. go to your place of work, and you will be fired.
then b: share your snarky smug ignorant comment with any wife or kids who haven't already left you
and c: someone will rile you up, how easy will that be????, and then you will end up in Lansing prison, or worse yet, the 4th or 5th floors of the Jackson County Jail--and some dude will take you out.

There is tryly a special place in hell for Holocuast deniers.

I look forward to this day.

She would come into my old job, she would say "you are from italy no, in Europe we love fresh bread and fresh vegetables how I remember as a child" very sweet lady, and yes, I noticed her well worn tattoo, I do not doubt she was in the presence of annihilation.

hooray for Tracy, calling out 5;22.

iT WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE HE SURFACED.

And it is just a matter of time before karma takes this dude out.
Come on, Tony.

Out the Denier. It is cruel, and not protected by the First Amendment.
