  1. @Del I always thought it went that people who live in glass houses should undress in the basement. But Wait! This can be a teachable moment! What might you take away from this?? 🤪
  2. Upon reading the post, for one of the few time in my life i was left speechless, and kinda revolted. But - after the sleazy picture i posted of myself a few weeks ago, who am i to judge? The FaceBook meme below, in addition to cracking me up, had me musing over how circulating this picture around for millions to see is worth more than a $3200 ransom payoff. 😂
  3. Go in peace, my son, and sin no more.
  4. @Del You really are discombobulated and seemingly unable to deal with the idea that you may end up looking silly. Are you somehow under the impression that i am claiming to be innocent of antagonizing Pioneer on this thread? Nobody here thinks that or needs you to explain how - i was doing what i always do, as depicted in my satirical spoof. Anybody who follows your desperate plea to read through this thread will also see what you neglected to admit and that is how you were lurking on the side lines during this debate, still festering about Kalexander not giving a damn about who or what you are, - just waiting for a chance to intervene on behalf of Pioneer, and lecture me about being a naughty girl before venting your wrath at that bad ol Kalexander, subsequenly trying to imply that he and i are diabolically colluding against Pioneer, something you feel driven to expose in your role of Super Del - incapable of leaping over low buildings at a single bound. Get over yourself. Your attempt to shame me as being impatient with pontificating people is a bust inasmuch as, unlike you and Pioneer, i can conceive of the idea that i am not flawless. Which is why i don't care if I ruffle your drooping feathers. 😛 You continue to cherry-pick and revise segments, trying to cobble together a case that will substantiate your distorted claims. SMH. You are something else. 😵
  5. @Del All you're doing is giving your totally subjective theory as to why people who irritate you, do the things they do. i could return the favor and attribute all of your transparent ranting to your having an inability to admit that you are ever wrong about anything - as demonstrated by your omission of any description of your own disruptive, querulous contributions to this thread. You assume you're dispensing profound revelations but you don't possess any more insight than anyone else here. Everybody thinks they've got everyone else figured out. (i wonder if the reason for you being so erratic and obstinate is because you have been kicked in the head by a kangaroo over there in Australia. Duck, Matey! 😲) i suggest you consider how I portrayed myself in my spoof. i don't pretend to be anything other than cynical and contrary and capricious. That's how i roll and again i say i don't dish out anything i can't take. I laugh at myself, because i consider taking oneself too seriously is a cardinal sin. And how cognitive can you be to think that i was trying to scare you and Pioneer? WOOOOO What was i gonna do? Come through the computer screen and sock you ball less mopes in the jaw? 😆 Get Real.
  6. One could observe that there's never a dull moment on this board because people are always going at it, engaging in verbal combat, something that has become the name-of-the-game on social media. How such confrontations play out here, provide very good material for a spoof served up with a cast of caricatures. Let's shift into the satire zone for a moment and imagine a "mockumentary" about the genesis of a Cynique's Corner smack down. * * * * * * * * * * After a busy day on the job where he holds the position of "head nigga in charge of shuffling papers", Pioneer is back in his digs, flushed with a latte from Starbucks, busy at work putting the final touches on his latest post for AALBC’s on-line discussion forum. The subject of his latest post is something that came to him earlier after tossing aside a manual, entitled “Single Race Theory for Dummies". Having forgotten to turn on his spell-check, he proceeds to log on to the site where he will share his thoughts with fellow posters and his hoped-for audience of lurkers. The topic of his latest dissertation? "One is the loneliest number in the world", a subject on which he is an expert, having once known some one who was the loneliest of his 3 friends. Meanwhile, Cynique before settling in for a interlude with her newly-arrived house guest, is on-line checking out recent comments on the corner named for her, looking for any excuse to start an argument because, much to the delight of her visitor, fussing gets her juices going. After "liking" harry brown’s weekly rant about greedy. womanizing. black. preachers. and. neo. nazi. cops. who. belong. to. the. KKK, her radar is suddenly put on alert. The appearance of Pioneer’s new post immediately puts her into attack mode. Yelling for her boy-toy to start the party without her, Cynique homes in on Pioneer's carefully crafted article which is complete with maps, pictures, graphs, links and a YouTube video featuring a tirade by Louis Farrakhan. Eagerly her eyes scan the material, hungry to find juicy nuggets to chew and spew at him. Quickly spotting several misspellings, making a note to furnish a definition for a word he has taken liberties with, parsing a phrase she discovers is grammatically incorrect, she proceeds to take aim, firing off a couple of ad hominem remarks while describing Pioneer’s article on one being the loneliest number in the world, as something he made up while humping his blow-up doll. Elsewhere on the forum, finished with their contest to see who can write the most cryptic sentence, arch enemies Del and Kalexander spot the notification of Pioneer’s new entry, and hurry to inject their input. Making reference to how he has picked the brains of thousands of people from all walks of life - when he's not spending his time casting astronomy charts which have, on occasion, been semi-accurate, Del is eager to validate Pioneer's claim, and shield him from Cynique's bullying. Kalexander simply settles for repeating his suspicions about Pioneer being a plant for the Russians, and then takes a break. But not before endorsing Cynique's harassment of Pioneer. Before long, Troy shows up to methodically explain to Pioneer why he is totally wrong about one being the loneliest number in the world, subsequently taking on Del’s counter-claim that Pioneer is absolutely right when it comes to one being the loneliest number in the world. They will eventually spend considerable time one-upping each other about what components make up the number one, ChevDov and Mel may put in appearances, opting to skip this debate, preferring to rhapsodize over such subjects as there being more Moors than previously thought. Over days, the hot button issue about one being the loneliest number in the world will escalate into lively exchanges laced with sarcasm, ridicule, misinformation and occasional lapses into enlightenment. Repetition and reiteration will abound amid a litany of "who said what", - accusations embellished with quotes lifted from previous posts. On and on it goes. Days later, the question as to whether one is the loneliest number in the world will have been sliced, diced, re-hashed and stirred up. Pioneer stands by his assertion convinced that white western science imposes its questionable beliefs on Afro Americans. Del also hangs in, certain that scientists are too arrogant to admit the truth about Pioneer's theory. Cynique philosophizes about "one' being an abstract number with 2 sides, both of which could be lonely. Troy trusts what is correlated by scientific data gleaned from a study of prison life where everyone is determined to be lonely, - an affirmation we have to figure out because of omissions and typos he didn't correct. Chevdove, Mel, Kalexander and harry brown fade in and out as we all bide our time until another earth-shattering question arises and spawns a new hectic debate after which no minds will have been changed and no issues resolved. Again. There you have it. Life as it pulsates around the cyber space that encompasses Cynique's Corner. And so it goes... 😁
  7. So then why are you bitching about Kalexander not acknowledging your education and being my "lap dog", when this has nothing to do with the original argument about class and income and values?
  8. It's not your best combative work either because your bruised ego over Kalexander's ignoring your educational credentials became the centerpiece of your strawman cherry picking argument and totally eclipsed the relevant issue. Lucky for you that i provided you with a way to back off and go lick your wounds. 🤣
  9. C'mon, Del. These strawman cherry-picked questions are beneath you. When you shift from your spiritual realm or technical one, you disappoint me. That's your definition of not having balls. As a woman, i used the phrase in response to you and pioneer clinging together, pouting because instead of me staying focused on the subject, I got "insulting". I couldn't care less whether you were or were not afraid of me. And are you implying that Kalexander is not ball less because he ruffled your feathers?
  10. Here is the entire paragraph. Prove your allegations instead of projecting about Kalexander who is not really that different from you when it comes to your jocking Pioneer. 😅Nothing you're saying about him has anything to do with what i casually mentioned, and talk about somebody being ruffled, he drives you up the wall, and laughs about it. And you are also guilty of doing what you accused me of when it comes to entire and accurate quotes.  You're' grasping at straws, i competed the entire comparison between a train derailment and your being off track
  11. I'm getting some of my news from CNN whose commentators are tearing their hair out because Republicans are not reining Trump in but are closing ranks around him, because his base is holding fast.

    The word is "writers", not "writters". It's satire, but not irony. It could also be called a lampoon.
  13. Sooo what conclusion do you come to??? How about finishing your sentence. That's not a "fact".
  14. fi you know the answer to the question, why ask it? Not all black women are ball-busters. Just as many are victimized and dominated by black men. Most of the dysfunctional behavior among blacks stems from slavery when slaves took on whatever role the situation required and this frequently called for women to be the strong one because their menfolk were so beat-down. This dynamic has never completely disappeared. And it has been exacerbated by the black male's affinity for white women. But in the big picture, strong people of any sex or race exert themselves either overtly or through passive aggression. Hen pecked men come in all colors as do brow beaten women. There are no easy answers to questions that involve the human condition.

    Royal Wedding, Are. You. Watching?

    You've all overlooked another venue which i choose regularly, and that's the travelogues which are readily available on TV. These filmed documentaries take you on tours of countries all over the world, immersing you in their indigenous cultures, while a running narration fills you in on their history as well as other interesting information. I have visited many places in the comfort of my home. This works for me.
  16. 😁 I'm old enough to know better. You are young and deluded, something you will soon discover. The most high? I don't embrace all of that nonsense. i'l l leave it to guillible wanna-bes like you, who are so out of touch with yourself you need all of this BS to cling to in order to feel validated. Get real. 😛 l. 😁
  17. Whatever. The Republican faithful are all weighing in, doing damage control and making up excuses for their fearless leader. United they'll stand because that secures their power base.
  18. Well, the New Age spirituality of the 1960s never completely died out and it seems to be making somewhat of a comeback what with how more and more people are drifting away from conventional religion and identifying themselves as being "spiritual". Meditation and Yoga and organic foods and Vegan diets are more popular than ever. Millennials are in the vanguard of those supporting people who want to be their true selves in regard to sexual orientation, and body weight. Yes, there is still a lot of materialistic superficiality out there in the celebrity world but also being played out on the public stage is how money doesn't buy contentment or true love. In the political realm, young people are abandoning the 2 major political parties and supporting grass root progressive movements, particularly concerned about climate change and free health care for all, most in agreement with the legalization of the marijuana they associate with relaxation and mind expansion. All of these represent shifts in lifestyles. We are in the midst of the Age of Aquarius and change is ongoing, a process some have even predicted will include the complexion of the general population morphing into a neutral beige shade. At my advanced age, I am very open to the idea of reincarnation, something that would enable me to come back and immerse myself in a transformed world. Who knows? Donald Trump and the effects of his reign might be a case of things having to get worse before they can get better.
  19. @Del If expecting your train of thought to not become derailed is being a "lovable crank", then i'll attribute your calling me this as a prime example of your being off track. I said that you and Pioneer "consider yourselves the voices of reason and calm who feel victimized by a shrew who ruffles your drooping feathers", and you ask if this statement is "another display of reason and sense". I never said I was the voice of reason and sense. I said you and Pioneer considered yourselves the "voices of reason and calm", so your question makes no sense. 🙃
  20. What does that have to do with you asking if what I said in the paragraph below was "another display of reason and sense"? Is this another display of reason and sense. @Cynique @Troy @Pioneer1
  21. All of your subterfuge said nothing to convince me that the process to remove Trump will take place by the end of July.
  22. i can't show you the edit because you edited it before i could quote it . But here is my reply to it. You originally said emotional and "foolish", and you know you did. Why would i just randomly change nonsensical to foolish? Is this another display of reason and sense. @Cynique @Troy @Pioneer1 Who knows? Do you? Your question makes no sense
  23. I admitted i couldn't find a specific post on the net - because i'm not going looking for one. But Sean Hannity on Fox news approved of Trump's news conference.
  24. No, i can't find anyone who approved of his news conference with Putin. But I tend to think his national security advisor John bolton, may not have had a problem with Trump's performance because Trump echoed everything Bolton has said in the past. Also Rudy Guiliani thinks Trump can do no wrong.

    i didn't say anything about Troy shuffling papers. I did mention my boy toy, i just didn't attribute the comments to pioneer.
