  1. *Port Authority* by Old Driller gone fishin'

    Post something worth responding to. Banasy's "little productive Louisianna port' story yanked my chain a tad. he he
    What would you like to hear this evening. How AIDS was first found in 1956, or the latest on Cheyenne Mtn. still using enough electricity to light a city of 250,000?

    • Read much?

      The conversation was about Louisiana ports and how much as it contributes, in addition to the bigger ports in America. We ALL get that you friggin hate banasy, but jeez, you take complete sentences out of frigging context and make it obvious that you can't stand her. Louisiana's Port isn't even in the top ten busiest in the nation, for god's sake.

      Obviously you are one of those people that think they know what they are talking about. True California and New york might move the most containers, but the port of New Orleans moves the most raw materials and food. And if you were thinking that was me you were responding to you were wrong about that to.

      I never said anything about Lousisana being a little port, and to attribute that to me is erroneous.

      Banasy's reply to hamsta on the previous page... " Louisiana contributes much, as do all of the bigger ports in America do."
      So one must assume from that statement that you mean Louisiana IS a smaller port.

      I was responding to whoever Read Much is, Probably atroll, and no Banasy I don't hate you.

      Is a smaller port than some?
      What part of that didn't you understand?
      It *is* a smaller port than some, as Hamsta even mentioned; I said nothing about being less productive, though, did I?

      You did use the words "little port"

      And, taking it one step further...I said, "Louisiana contributes much, as do all of the BIGGER ports in America do".
      The implication, for those that are challenged by reading comprehension, that Louisiana's, is indeed, one of the bigger ones.
      Louisiana's is one of the most productive in the US, and why someone is trying to paint it in a different light than what I stated is just completely beyond me.

      Hamsta, I know it isn't you that dislikes me very intensely here.
      I had never thought that, not once.

    Don't know, but I could use one of your jokes right now. I'm steamed at Entergy right now, I just saw one of their corporate bureacrats on tv talking about how they are having delays because they are deciding who's responsibilty it is to cut the trees off of power lines. Not only would Cleco just do it and worry about that later, but have you ever seen the commercials that tell you not to monkey with power lines. The commercial says call Cleco and let them worry about that. I could swear Entergy has the same commercial. I wonder if this moron knows they tell you not to monkey with power lines for a reason. maybe he should stick his finger in a light socket and figure it out because I cab't go to work until electricity is restored at my job.

    From this thread to Gods ears! sheesh. Boggles my mind how one man can hate one woman (who hes never met) so intensely, but it is really getting mundane!

    I don't know why that would be a problem; our local utility company cuts back trees all the time, so they are fully capable of doing it.
    Same thing when there are downed powerlines due to tree damage after our tornados...
    One would think that they would have figured all of that out during the last hurricane, no?
    In any case, I hope power is quickly restored; this seems to be such a *dumb* thing to delay restoration over.

    I agree.
    We need a bobcat joke!

    I'm trying my best to get one of my jokes on here, but their either being moderated or flat out refused. I've gone back and checked for words they deem inappropriate and have found nothing. They're also blocking a lot of my regular posts tonight. Think they're trying to tell me something ?

    A young walked into her school library and asked the librarian for a particular book. Are you sure you want that book ? she asked. It's pretty scary. I'm not afraid of anything said the girl. I've seen my grandmother naked.
