Lady Checkmate:
I knew they were lying.
Think about it. If you'd been held captive (against your will) anywhere in the Middle East, and was released you'd get the heck out of dodge, not decide to stay. Actually, I'd be surprised I survived that long-as a Christian woman, lol.
I guarantee the alt-left will claim Stockholm Syndrome and excuse their behavior, smh.

Gary Ritzman:
There both crackers. Who goes for a hike in the countryside when the Talban and others are torturing and killing nearly everyone they come in contact with.
The one’s who will suffer most are their children thanks to Mr. Boyle. Difficult to believe their mother has no maternal instincts to protect her children.

Lady Checkmate:
I don't know how to respond, lol. I want to up vote you and agree with you, but your use of the word "cracker" confuses me. It's considered a racial epithet and I don't like racial epithets at all nor support their use, but I'm not sure if that was your intent, and if so I must ask that you edit it out. If I misunderstood your usage of the word, then please enlighten me.

I'm pretty Ritzman is using cracker to mean crazy. I'm surprised Lady Checkmate isn't more familiar with that usage; After All, she hears it almost every day.

your use of the word "cracker" confuses me. It's considered a racial epithet

I thought the term crackers being a synonym for mad was well known.

I love this SO much. She's such an idiot and so quick to take offense and wants to ban so badly that she immediately looks to the most offensive use of the word and doesn't realize the word more commonly just means "crazy".

The other guy being named "Ritzman" makes it even better.

All bolding in this submission was my own. Didn't want anyone to miss the unintended comedy gold.

Cracker is hardly ween as an offensive racist term.

Lady Checkplease wouldn't survive 10 days in a place like that without begging to be let out and doing anything she could to get out, including lying.

As for the term cracker as a racial slur, in the states it is a slur for Caucasian.

...aren't you supposed to be an African-American? 'Cracker' is a racial epithet used against whites.

I'll tell you who is white: Collector, trader & taste-reviewer of MREs Steve1989. He's eaten various military rations from those made early this year to those issued in WWII, and even way before then:


This review entitled '1863 American Civil War Hardtack: Oldest Cracker Ever Eaten'

Let's get this enlightenment out onto a tray... nice!

A word that - unlike him - could never be used to describe you.

Because unlike you, the Jesus of YouTube is a cool dude who's so laid back he's almost horizontal: the diametric opposite to you, attitude-wise. If he ever encountered you, he'd let your bile & venom spat out just pass by him, unnaffecting him in any way, and just say 'Nice hiss!': as his verbal P-38 pierced the thin armour of the tin lid that is you constantly under pressure.

Checkmate, Lady.

Hypocrisy thy name is fundie

Actually, I'd be surprised I survived that long-as a Christian woman, lol.

I am sure you would resign your Christianity. God knows you voted for an unrepentant sinner and use Christianity as more of a convenience than anything else

I believe cracker is intended to insult "rednecks," not all whites. And I also seem to remember that it is used by Brits as a synonym for crazies. (I am not entirely certain that the Colemans do not fit at least the latter usage. As opposed to a walk in Taliban territory I would prefer just to lie down on I-4 during an Orlando rush hour.)

Maybe he should have said "nuts", though many would assume he meant "Christian".
That persecuter!

You are correct. I forgot to add that in my explanation.

Sanitizing everything is sight, I`d love to make you utterly powerless to do so and watch you pop one from the anger and frustration.

Just to add a little tidbit of info from Wikipedia (from the article on the former minor-league 'Atlanta Crackers' baseball team)....

"The term cracker is derived from the Gaelic craic, meaning entertaining conversation or boasting, with the latter sense still attested in the idiom "not all [subject]'s cracked up to be." It was used in the 18th century to denote Irish and Scottish colonists of the Deep South backcountry. The Earl of Dartmouth had this to say in a 1766 correspondence: "I should explain to your Lordship what is meant by Crackers; a name they have got from being great boasters; they are a lawless set of rascals on the frontiers of Virginia, Maryland, the Carolinas, and Georgia, who often change their places of abode."

Would anyone like some cheese and crackers? I'm white, so I should be allowed to say that.

In my country it merely means a biscuit. Or someone is "crackers" if they are or should be a resident of the funny farm. Like old Gingham really.

10/14/2017 1:31:43 AM



"Would anyone like some cheese and crackers?" is OK.
"Would anyone like some cheese, crackers?"....maybe not, depending on where you are when you're saying it.


(seriously, though, I think of that word more as a racial epithet than a way to say crazy.)

Oh good. She's stupid in the classic sense, too.

You don't like racial epithets, but religious ones are fine and dandy?
What if I don't like the words Stockholm Syndrome? (I don't mind them, really, but they could be seen as slurs on Swedes, if you twist them hard enough.)

Btw, Gary's use or the word "there" instead of "they're" is what's confuses me...
