A Special Thank You to Frank

You might remember Frank Galvin from such comments like, “..this site is a front for American Nazi Party” or “…this site is a front for Benny Hinn's Hitler Youth group”. Only Frank could make these accusations with a straight face. This is not why I’m thanking him though. The reason I’m thanking him is because he made it possible for me to eat out on Sunday.

Saturday night I was at a poker game and was at the final table with only four people left. 4th place received only $20 of the $25 entry fee. Frank Galvin was the reason I made money. He went all in, lost to another Bush supporter, and made it possible for me to make a $50 profit on top of my original investment. A heart felt thank you to Frank Galvin. Dinner was great and it was all because of you becoming 4th place.

Also I would like to thank Mukrz. He also contributed all his chips to the Phat Tony Restaurant fund.

Schweeeet!

Did you know that you're 10th in the Veterans category for Milbloggies? Two more votes and you'll be ahead of that whiner CB.

I didn't know. I guess I'll have to come up with a good Phat History Lesson soon.

Wow! 2 whole posts since September. How's he find the time to do it? He's a little behind the ball on that Alliance=Nazi thing. I think that was thoroughly ridiculed like a month or two ago.

I guess crow wasn't on the menu (for you, at least). Heh. Good for you, Doc!

I could say a lot of things here regarding our poker history together but I will not. I will remind you that I finished in top place last year. I will also remind you that, had I started at your table orginally, you would not have accumulated yer chips. I will also remind you that I had a bad beat when I was put out...my straight against his 2 measley 2 pair which turned into a f*cking boat on the river. We can also compare profitabilities from playing poker in the past year or so.

Lastly, my portion of your profit was meager if you actually calculate it correctly. I did win most of my entry fee back so your profits, in reality, came from elsewhere if you wish to be technical about it. Hell, if anything, my contribution was $5 split between the last 3 players. So that's ummmm...$1.67 profit from me to you. Hope that KitKat bar was good. Tsk tsk...I thought you had some engineering degree or something. I suck at math and yet I can plainly see your uber exaggerance of my contributing profit.

Like I said...there are a lot of things I can say here.

Also, Mukrz is on my shit list for the time being.

Hope yer meal was enjoyable and I'm glad no one choked on it.

ps..yes there is little content (if you can call it that) on my blogspot. This can be explained quite simply actually. 1) Quality is always better than quantity and 2) I'm in law school for christ's sakes...I barely have time to write you bastards (this is not a cuss word per se DPT) as it is.

Hugs n kisses. And fiar...shutcher ass up!

Christ, just what the world needs-another liberal lawyer.

How does it work playing poker with a liberal:do all the Conservatives throw in a $10 ante and the lib throws in $1 and then just tells everyone to take whatever they need?

Frank It wasn't so much that I got your money it's that you made it possible for me to get money.

 
At 7:59 PM, Blogger Frank Galvin said...

anonymous: you have it ass-backwards actually (get some balls too...try posting with yer name next time). conservatives don't want their money going to anyone else but themselves while the libs give freely. even if it's to feed a starving person. being a "liberal" means to be liberated so to speak. conservatism teaches nothing but being selfish. conservatives like to think of themselves as "christians" (most anyways)...yet they are hypocrites. screaming that the government needs to stop feeding families (welfare) yet that's what jesus taught. he took a couple of fish and some french bread (or whatever bread it was...bible not very specific on this) and instead of hoarding it for him and his guys, he did some miracle or somethin and fed many many people (could all be bullshit..who knows).

and yes i will be a uber liberal lawyer and will artfully plead my complaints so that my frivolous lawsuits will get into court. i will sue rich corporations and stand up for the little guy. i will lobby against tort reform along with my colleauges at the ATLA. i will push for 1st amendment rights so that consenting adults CAN see strippers, rent or buy porno, or god forbid buy a "sex toy" in this great state of Alabama. and YES...i will also be for 2nd amendment rights even though i think you hillibillies don't need to be sportin no guns now.

lastly, you have to forgive me. i've lived in Chicago most of my life and have been a Democrat all of my life (11 years-old & on). that is a city glued to the Democratic ways and always will be.

anyways...just thought I'd chime in hyar.

yer pal and bestest buddy,

"I could say a lot of things here regarding our poker history together but I will not. I will remind you that I finished in top place last year."

This sounds just like a democrat who just lost his seat in congress. Just replace 'our poker history together' with 'my relection campaign'.

"..libs give freely." Yeah. Liberal politicians give my income away freely. They walk around claiming the humanity credit for themselves. I include GWB in this list. I always love this extended charity theory about how Jesus taught us that government should give welfare. Just poo-poo the actual lesson with a hand wave. If you don't feel it is in your heart to give, we will rip it from your wallet, give it away, then we will still spit on you. Yeah, that's called charity. Then they back it up with a broad brush BS argument about conservative selfishness. I guess I must be one of those extremely rare conservatives who gives almost ten percent of his income to private charity; You know, the charity that doesn't count, since it did not come from liberal politicians.

Putting people out of work, killing their bonuses an shoving millions into tort lawyer's pockets is now 'standing up for the little guy'. We all know those big evil corporations aren't actually groups of productive people. They are all evil automotons, each with a secret basement lair, which they use to grow money, for the express purpose of holding it back from the people. We all know those altruistic attorneys are raking it in, not for their own enrichment, but to teach us all a lesson, over and over and over, until we are humbled into poverty. What a pile of specious tripe.

"Trolls are welcome and their wacky beliefs and conspiracy theories will be tolerated, as long as they don’t run on forever making people scroll eternally to get to the bottom of the comment section. If I feel that your comment is too long, it will be desolved faster than a Hollywood marriage."

Hey DPT, where is the trigger threshold on this rule?

You can borrow Frank if you would like. Jst give him back in time to get me more money in poker

 
At 7:08 PM, Blogger Frank Galvin said...

I am a personal associate of DPT and therefore I'm alotted a tad more leniency (I'm a really nice guy in person actually). Besides, what good are ANY blogs if there are no "different" opinions? Then you just keep hearing the same ole crap. All free societies depend on, and in fact, thrive on differences in opinion.

insolublogslob: Again I hear the same shite from conservatives: "they are giving MY income away freely!!". Do you honestly believe for one second that, assuming arguendo, that welfare programs, etc. are bad and hence should be done away with, that you would pay less taxes as a result?? No. Your so-called income would still be taxable at the same rates on your paycheck. If you don't like our tax rates then bitch and moan to your government. Oh wait...that's right I forgot...we have a republican president in the white house (on his 2nd term mind you) AND a house and senate republican majority. So obviously they are looking out for you pal. You must be satisfied. Also, how do you even know that YOUR tax contributions went to welfare programs, etc.?? Can you fairly say that you know for certain that even one red cent from YOUR taxes went into those funds? No you can't.

Lastly, I cannot believe you would make such an abominable, sarcastic statement against attorneys while glorifying corporations. Do you truly believe that there is no malfeasance committed by corporations?? What about Enron? I suppose if a corporation does anyone an injustice, they should be immune from prosecution, sanctions, or punishment? If you truly believe this then there's no point even arguing this further.

Also, get a damn haircut and stop being such a damn nerd (I love unix books, etc.). Whatta dork! A 40-year-old engineer who loves to read Linux/Unix books has got to be single and if yer not...then it's a miracle. Yes these comments may seem offensive, uncalled for, idiotic, desperate, etc...but at least I'm not making love to a computer.

Peace out.

Ah yes. The ad hominem attack. The last refuge of the weak mind. In that light, any further debate is useless.

One more thing:

Here's frank bashing anonymous for omitting personal data:

"anonymous: you have it ass-backwards actually (get some balls too...try posting with yer name next time)."

Here's frank bashing me, by using my personal data:

"Also, get a damn haircut and stop being such a damn nerd...blah..blah..blah"

Frank has no information in his profile. He is using a Hollywood actor for his icon. Hypocrisy, thy name is frank.
