Started this discussion. Last reply by Matthew J Dorry Nov 5, 2014. 382 Replies

I've been recently impressed with Mike Rowe's non-partisan push for a return to economic practicality, working with your hands, skilled trade labor, etc.  My attention was initially drawn by his…Continue

Game of Thrones came up in another thread.  In lieu of hijacking it further, I figured it might be worth having a thread for entertainment recommendations ... books, movies, TV shows, video games,…Continue

What happened, Jack? You piss in Walter's cornflakes?

Jack, you really are an immature man.

Seems to work, Jack, sort of.  Still pops up with yahoo as my mail address, I just switch it to Hotmail.  Thanks.

Jack, be honest.  You're an attorney-you're supposed to tell the truth.  You make veiled fag jokes practically daily to me-"the henhouse" yesterday.  C'mon.

Tried to solve the problem with post.  X's simply won't appear on my posts.  Will try again.

Read Jack.  I don't live in San Francisco.  Also, I don't see many men who spew forth stuff like (you do) here in San Luis Obispo.

If you go back to the sex group (way ironic man!) you'll find that I'm importuning you to stay in the South, for God sakes.

That's probably really where your audience is.

Hi, JB. Welcome to the Philhellene group! I see you've already kicked off some discussion and I look forward to more in the future.

Jack I have to say I am constantly impressed by your posts here. They are very well written and to date have been in line with my own views. The joy in reading them is how structured your points are. It helps me formulate a better understanding of my own opinions. Thank you!
