How about a puppy?
E.T Cunha January 06, 2012 at 01:36 PM
A puppy is a great idea....
UglyHat January 06, 2012 at 03:43 PM
I'm not really a dog lover but why would you subject an innocent creature to such a fate :-)
Jim Rizoli January 06, 2012 at 04:02 PM
Puppy is good but a lot of work.....If I lived on a farm yes. Had a cat, it died. Cats are good. I'm just enjoying the friends I've made here.....LOL I must have one friend here. Jim@ccfiile.com
UglyHat January 06, 2012 at 04:19 PM
I find most of what you say (write) to be over broad and ethnically discriminatory – which is akin to racism in my opinion. I find some of what you say to be ignorant and/or inaccurate. You seem to have passion for a specific topic, which would be commendable if not for my first two statements. I’m sure you won’t lose any sleep knowing I am not a friend of yours Jim.
E.T Cunha January 06, 2012 at 05:16 PM
Not a fan either!
Maurice January 06, 2012 at 07:01 PM
Good job uglyhat and e.t cunha im not hes fan Ether and i dont think hes have a friend ether ..not even a Family ;)
Jim Rizoli January 06, 2012 at 07:45 PM
I'm so sad......LOL He we go with the racist stuff again. I mean really now, if you're white do you hate your race? You better love your race no matter what it is because if you don't your a pretty good liar. Make sure you define what racism really is before you give your answers. Then maybe you can show everyone here where I'm a racist. Some good examples would be nice. I know plenty of black people that will go to bat for me. So if they don't think I'm a racist who does? Guilt ridden white people who are closet racists themselves. Just for the record...I dislike, whites, blacks, Jews, Christians, Muslims you name it that break the law. Mans laws for sure....but more importantly God's Law. Are we clear here? Jim@ccfiile.com
Deanna Runeman January 06, 2012 at 07:55 PM
You know what's sad? Someone who uses LOL indiscriminately when absolutely nothing they say is particularly funny. Inconceivable.. I don't think that phrase means what you think it means.
E.T Cunha January 06, 2012 at 08:01 PM
Jim.....I don't care for anyone breaking the law either. Your statements appear to be an attack on brazilians regardless of their status. Please re-read your post and recognize you are basically performing racial profiling. Should you need the definition, I will be happy to assist you. Maybe you and your brother should look into getting jobs besides sitting on the Patch writing comments. I will pray for you.
Jim Rizoli January 06, 2012 at 08:17 PM
ET.....Are you kidding me? I've never made legal immigrants the brunt of my attacks. Show me where? You all seem to have the answers but not the proof of what you're saying. Just ad hominem attacks. Racial profiling please explain what that is? And how I'm connected to it. Life is racial profiling, everyone is part of it and if you say no you're not being honest. You look at people everyday and decide what action to take. How do you think that all comes about? You "racially" profiled that person. Good or bad that's exactly what you did. You don't have to pray for me....I say enough prayers to protect me from all the wacko's out there. Deanna.....You make a point here for what reason? What's sad is, some of you people have no clue what's going on in the world, and you comment like you're all set. Do I have all the answers....No, but I know when something is wrong. And I have a perfect right to express it. Agreed? Jim@ccfiile.com

Jim, I didn’t say you were a racist, I said things you say (write) are ignorant and ethnically discriminatory, which to me is akin to racism. While I don’t have a lot of time to waste proving myself, here are a couple of examples (direct quotes) that took me less than 1 minute to find… “An honest Brzazilian.....who would of thunk.” Posted by Jim Rizoli at 10:40 AM today. “Crazy people use utility tools, Brazilians use knives, and Americans use guns.” Posted by Jim Rizoli at 2:10 PM yesterday Explain to me how these statements are not ignorant and ethnically discriminatory. Or don’t – I really don’t care to argue this all day. To answer your questions, I am happy with the person I have become but my nationality and skin color are a very small part of who I am. And those attributes alone do not make me better or worse than anyone else. You may have enlightened me on a topic that has bothered me for some time. When I have discussed the issue of illegal immigration in the past I have been confronted by those who think my views are racist or discriminatory. I always wondered where that comes from. Your generalizations and ethnic slander are not doing you (or me) any favors in our fight against illegal immigration.
Deanna Runeman January 06, 2012 at 08:59 PM
Considering you consume so much of my towns air, I can make any point I want as well...Agreed? It is my right too. And while you have freedom of speech like everyone else, it doesn't infringe on my right to think you're a ...... LOL, for lack of an appropriate word, I'll leave that one up to your imagination. (and that, Mr. Rizoli, is how to properly use "LOL")
Jim Rizoli January 06, 2012 at 09:50 PM
Deanna.... Does it bother you that I have the time to be here? I'm a little taken back that you would complain about to what I do here. No disrespect...I could care less what you do or any else does here, so why would you be so concerned about me? I have the viewpoint...... do what makes you happy and who cares what everyone else does. Does that make sense to you? By the way LOL means to me laughing out loud....I guess it means something else to you. Jim@ccfiile.com

Jim, you need to pick up a skill called reading for a consistent theme. Stop picking on individual posters who are all telling you the same thing: we have heard your message for six months now, again and again and again, and again, and people have lost their patience. Just the sight of your little boy with the megaphone is enough to stop some people from reading your comments. Ironic choice you made there.
Jim Rizoli January 06, 2012 at 11:00 PM
Mary.....You and others here need to get rid of the bad trait called denial. Don't make it like I'm the problem. But socially that's what happens hen the problems continue............. someone has to be the bad guy. I'm just the messenger except it graciously. I don't blame anyone for my inadequacies. Jim@ccfiile.com Do the problems go away? You do what everyone else does you try to make like they don't exist.
E.T Cunha January 06, 2012 at 11:31 PM
Jim....please stop... Your rants are pathetic. Please tell me by now you realize NOBODY IS AGREEING WITH YOU...... Medication helps people ...., hint....lol.... I will pray for you....lol
Mary MacDonald (Editor) January 07, 2012 at 12:51 AM
blah, blah, blah.... your audience has checked out, long ago.
MrMilford January 07, 2012 at 01:28 AM
Deanna...+100 Points awarded to you for the "Princess Bride" quote. I'd like to offer a "template" for all those here to help save time during your disagreements inspired by the movie "Billy Madison".... "Dear (insert posters name here), what you've just (posted) is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever (read). At no point in your rambling, incoherent (post) were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this (forum) is now dumber for having (read) it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul." Remember, people who agree with you all the time are boring, and it's better to argue with a friend than an enemy.
Jim Rizoli January 07, 2012 at 05:15 AM
Mr. Milford.....I could use that template for this site. Mary....Pretty funny....you should be a comedian. ET.....You spaceship has left the planet UglyHat.....those aren't "racist" comments just the truth. Nice to see you have been "enlightened" by my knowledge of illegal immigration. No one will tell you like it is like me. I'm glad we're all having a good time here. Jim@ccfiile.com
SomeoneOrSomething January 08, 2012 at 07:00 AM
@MrMilford: Dear MrMilford, what you've just quoted is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in your rambling, incoherent quote were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this forum is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul. ... :)
