Pox isn't stupid. He just can't admit when he's wrong. Instead, he
keeps pushing his mistaken position while trying to intimidate with
insults and slurs.
It gets him into a lot of trouble. Ask him about his magic .410 "goose
gun" that "reaches out" farther than a 12-gauge. He'll give you the

Wait, wait. You need to remember some history. The Spaniards stole it
from the Native Americans. The Mexicans "inherited" it from the
Spaniards when they won their war of independence in 1821.
But they didn't really want it very much. <g> They only had it for 27
years, when they gave it up to the U.S. in the Treaty of Guadalupe
Hidalgo in 1848.
Nevada never owned most of the territory. As a condition of statehood,
they had to agree that the state and its people would make no claim
upon the U.S. government's lands -- over 80% of the state.
And that's where it is today. Nevada has disclaimed any ownership.
Bundy and his reprobates never had any claim to it at all.
Blame the Spaniards. We just killed Mexicans for it. But it isn't
clear whether we really wanted it, either. It was just in the way.
Ha ha ha! So #ReamMeUpTheAssScotty seems to be wallowing in a
"pre-truth culture", as he isn't exactly denying the history - he's
literally 100% unaware of it.
That's what happens when you incur major brain damage from riding your
scooter into a huge tree.
He doesn't let that stop him. He uses what he has, which, in many
cases, is not very much at all. But he fills in the blanks with
imagined "facts." Cooking them up is what makes up a big part of his

It's not a can of worms, BMUS. It's a few simple historical facts,
which are explained easily in a single post.
If you don't KNOW the history, but profess to write about it anyway,
you can make a can of worms for yourself.
LOL! No, I don't think it did. He writes as if it /might/ have
"Rudy Canoza" is a fictional character invented by radio genius Phil
Hendrie, who - alas! - is no longer on the radio, having gone entirely
to subscription-based podcasts. I don't know if you're familiar with
Hendrie at all, but his old radio was hoax talk radio. He would start a
segment interviewing a "guest", e.g. Canoza, and the guest always had a
story that started out pretty dodgy and got increasingly absurd. The
interview would continue up to the first commercial break, then continue
for another minute or so until Phil began taking calls from listeners
who didn't know that Hendrie was doing the voice of the guest. The
callers always wanted to argue with the guest, sometimes ferociously,
and Phil always sided with the callers as a way of maintaining the
illusion that the guest was a different person. He was really talented
"Bud Dickman", another Hendrie-voiced character, was the young station
intern, and his story was that he had ridden his motorcycle into a tree
and had brain damage. His speech was somewhat impaired, and he was a
complete goof. He is the inspiration for my saying that

I can send you links to about four or five Hendrie segments that I have,
if you're interested.

I was researching some medicinal herbs used in spiced wines and

Spam is flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message, in
an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose
to receive it. Most spam is commercial advertising, often for dubious
products, get-rich-quick schemes, or quasi-legal services. Spam costs
the sender very little to send -- most of the costs are paid for by the
recipient or the carriers rather than by the sender.
There are two main types of spam, and they have different effects on
Internet users. Cancellable Usenet spam is a single message sent to 20
or more Usenet newsgroups. (Through long experience, Usenet users have
found that any message posted to so many newsgroups is often not
relevant to most or all of them.) Usenet spam is aimed at "lurkers",
people who read newsgroups but rarely or never post and give their
address away. Usenet spam robs users of the utility of the newsgroups by
overwhelming them with a barrage of advertising or other irrelevant
posts. Furthermore, Usenet spam subverts the ability of system
administrators and owners to manage the topics they accept on their systems.
Email spam targets individual users with direct mail messages. Email
spam lists are often created by scanning Usenet postings, stealing
Internet mailing lists, or searching the Web for addresses. Email spams
typically cost users money out-of-pocket to receive. Many people -
anyone with measured phone service - read or receive their mail while
the meter is running, so to speak. Spam costs them additional money. On
top of that, it costs money for ISPs and online services to transmit
spam, and these costs are transmitted directly to subscribers.
One particularly nasty variant of email spam is sending spam to mailing
lists (public or private email discussion forums.) Because many mailing
lists limit activity to their subscribers, spammers will use automated
tools to subscribe to as many mailing lists as possible, so that they
can grab the lists of addresses, or use the mailing list as a direct
target for their attacks.
