THEE TO A GUNNERY
the Beast as I sit,
my friends call me a twit.
still quite crude,
political coverage's hot shit.
one question. Why is Kerry, on the cover of your #55, waving
an AK-47? Why not a good old all-american M-16? Are you guys commies
we know from guns. Actually, the AK was a trophy from Kerry’s war hero
days, when he picked it up off a VC 12-year-old he shot in the back.
Vietnam ended April 30th 1975. We bombed the NVA commies
back to the Paris peace talks with Linebacker II. Major combat operations
for U.S. troops ended April 1st 1973. It's over damn it. It's over.The
Gulf of Tonkin Incident in 1964 with the destroyers USS Maddox and
USS Turner Joy being attacked by North Vietnamese patrol boats firing
torpedoes never happened. Congress got fooled into signing the Gulf
of Tonkin Resolution in 1965. LJB and McNamara got us more involved
in the war. The VC (Viet Cong's) Tet offensive of 1968 was a devastating
failure for the VC and they seized to be a coherent fighting force,
but commies like Walter Cronkite told them America public on national
television that the war was basically a quagmire. The secret deal behind
the war was an agreement to end the threat of nuclear weapons use by
the super powers. To reunite East and West Germany. We also did want
natural resources from Indo China. Yes, the war could have been won,
but what if it led to WW III. After all it was NATO versus the Warsaw
Pact countries. A possible nuclear exchange over Vietnam. The same could
have been said about Korea. General McArthur wanted to nuke the hell
out of the Chinese after we drove the North Korean's all the way over
the Yalu River into China. China them came at us with hundreds of thousand
of troops. Maybe if so many American's weren't so God damn stupid they
would know this.
Navy veteran 1982-1992
the veteran's of the Korean and Vietnam war. They did not die in vain.
We stuck a huge spear through the heart of socialism and Communism.
Angry War Hero,
Good thing we got rid of that socialism stuff over in East Asia there!
Otherwise, who the hell’s gonna make our sneakers for $12 a week? Yee-hah!
Won’t be long ‘fore that evil socialism’s gonna be all gone here, too!
No more health care or retirement benefits for Americans, neither—damn
lazy old people. And disabled veterans—don’t get me started on them
freeloaders! Thank God there’s people like you and George Bush to get
them precious tax dollars back to where they belong—in the hands of
Don’t sweat it, though, Adam; we’re sure
the kind people of Buffalo will throw enough cash in your hat to keep
you too knocked out on Mad Dog to realize you’re freezing to death.
Freezing patriotically, of course.
glad to see that you whining punks agree with me, though my very long
sentece/statement, was a bit like stating the obvious, I was simply
trying to throw my 2 cents in with a solution. Enough of this stand
offishness by our fair citezens. (LISTEN TO ME ) simple stern verbal
or written warnings obviously don't work for the theiving lawmakers
in this depressed region, some times you have to slap sence into the
ignorant. My solution is a most simple, MUTANY!!....
Get your asses off
the couch and go to home depot.
JAGGED DEATH SCRAWL ON A LIST OF CHEAT CODES
be that ‘the Beast’ of Buffalo has been ‘Buffaloed’..?
says “Be aware of the adversary – the devil, whom walketh around as
a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour”…
you jest…depicting Mr. Cameron ‘crucified’…for sin.
I differ in some of his viewpoints – and tend to disagree at times regarding
some of his theology…think of what he gave up to believe and teach…biblically
‘written’ hope in ‘eternity’…of immortality…and death conquered….defeated
and Hell was cast in the lake of fire.” – Revelations
someone as ‘a’ substitute…took ‘our’ place on the cross…bearing ‘our’
deserved punishment. ‘One’ whom live ‘a’ perfect life…without sin.
may question the validity of the bible as a written source of information
– on Life and death – and concerning Life after Death, but ‘what’ can
we find as a replacement?
about reality? You may prefer to live in ‘a’ land of make-believe, ‘but’
that doesn’t oblige ‘us’ to respect ‘it.’ And “surely you jest?” of
course we jest, dummy. Try reading a different book for once.
HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER
made that artwork with shitbauer in the diaper deserves a raise.
relax his beating schedule.
who possesses such little credence in the validity of Alt Press, I am
amused by the time you spend writing about them.
“possess little credence in the validity of” nearly everything we write
about: Artvoice, The News, Bush, Masiello, Giambra, God, etc. So what?
Alt may not be worth bothering with, but…well, they started it. And
that article took about fifteen minutes, so don’t wet yourself. Besides,
we even got a positive review from the paper’s own staff…
THE TREACHERY NEVER END?
the Beast's slam dunk on Alt today. Alas...you are right sir. Especially
on that goo-goo dolls article! I seemed to be the only person who thought
his statements were clinically insane!
sorry we couldn't hook up that interview. But I think your article kept
it real, man. I even told Joe that I thought you were right. I really
want him to improve the damn paper, and I think this type of criticism
is in a strange sort of way productive criticism.
thought about not printing your letter, but realized that you’re not
really one to keep your opinions to yourself anyway. Sorry we missed
you for that interview—keep in touch. Good luck on your journey to the
eventual realization that Alt
suck. If you really want to improve it, try slipping a copy of the BEAST
into each issue.
WE DON’T WANT THE GUY DEAD OR ANYTHING
didn't even finish Al Uthman's well written article in #55 titled “Puberty
and Bad Politics” when it dawned on me that Joe Schmidbauer’s attack
directed at the Beast infuriated me.
allowed this idiot access to a word processor and the position from
which he can spew this bullshit should be forced to smoke a quarter
ounce of Indiana ditchweed and then guzzle a six-pack of Golden Anniversary
beer! Then while under the influence of the worst high known to mankind
he could re-think his decisionl
this brain-donor realize that it was us beer-swilling, pot-smoking,
blue-collar fucks that built this now pathetic city?
lowly blue collar slaves enjoy our reality in very large doses.
we get our large doses of reality from The- Beast which has quickly
become, in my opinion, a voice of the masses.
types own Harleys and have "old ladies" NOT motorcycles and
KNOW our neighbors because our houses are close enough that we can actually
see and talk to them!
are all one of just three makes and a half-dozen models, and in most
all cases never equal our homes in value.
to work overtime to spend our vacations somewheres other than our own
brings me to the GOO GOO DOLLS the band that us blue-collar types love
to call our very own from Buffalo. Why in hell would anyone want these
guys to get involved in politics? Music is ART and please don't ruin
ART with politics mister “Shitbauer” as you are a first-rate moron.
Puuulease do not tell me that the "ALT" stands for alternative!
Alternative to what? “ALT” should mean ALL LEGAL TRASH!! As being pummeled
with bullshit and self-serving rhetoric is hardly a real alternative.
Buffalonian need do is fork over their next to last four-bits for that
two-bit rag known as the Buffalo News to get a more thorough pummeling
than what your pathetic prose delivers.
can snicker all you like at this Beast behind bars but you Mr. "Shitbauer"
are locked within a prison of your own delusional mentality, from which
you will never be freed!
it truly sucks to be here in this dump with all these knuckle-dragging
cretins, but being "bottomed-out" leaves me only one direction
of travel. Upward. I'm going up and you're going down Mr. "Shitbauer"!
Hope that you aren't a fag.
I am without a fucking thing to lose after my wife divorces me and then
takes my life and kid and shitcans them for her own insane reasons,
I am the LAST 6'4" 280 pound blue-collar fuck you want standing
on your doorstep prepared to defend the last decent thing in his life,
and the best journalistic endeavor to ever grace our city.
up numbnuts, my existence is made easier by the boys at THE BEAST so
do not fuck with that!
have health insurance right?
truly must sling some shit why don't you grab yourself a mirror, a very
Shitbauer maybe you couls join forces with those journalistically castrated
douche-bags at ARTVOICE and then you could call the resulting fiasco
ALTVOICE for ALTERNATIVE LITERARY TRASH VOICED OVER INTELLIGENCE and
But maybe not so much. So that’s two correspondents to stumble upon
the delicious “Shitbauer” pun.
marc croce, owner of most of franklin street (brownstone,
darcy mcgee's, the chophouse, several franklin parking lots and god
knows what else) is a money-grubbing asshole. in a capitalist society,
this may be applauded, but just like most capitalists, he has risen
to prominence by standing on the backs of the minimum-wage earning bastards
who work for him.
i agree that the most evil and idiotic non-elected buffalonian is our
own arrogant midget with ill-fitting dentures, jamie moses- marc croce
is a close second.
case in point- although many of his restaurants are popular
and therefore lucrative "waiting" jobs (by buffalo standards)-
he unabashedly steals from his staff. those who have waited tables
know that most standard and fair labor practices do not apply to the
restaurant business. you make less than minimum wage, are not afforded
the luxury of a break (unless you count three drags off a cigarette
near the dumpsters), are denied any sort of benefits, and put up with
every form of bigotry, abuse and hate that can be muttered out of the
earshot of a customer. but mister marc croce prefers to sodomize his
staff as opposed to simply starve them. his waiters are required to
tip out the hostess', the bus boys, and the bartenders. although this
isn't entirely unheard of, the percentages he requires fall between
30 and 40% of his grossly underpaid waitstaff's nightly tips. all of
this allows him to underpay the rest of his staff, leaving them to rely
on what he steals from his overworked and underpaid waiters (there are
no waitress' allowed at the chop house). this is considered illegal
by the nys labor board and he has been investigated and found guilty
on more than one occassion. however, the fines and ordered compensation
have not slowed him down a bit. he continues this practice because
when you figure only one in every one hundred staff members complains,
he still comes out on top.
as mentioned previously, he also owns many of franklin
streets parking areas. although there is an attendant rarely on duty,
he has compensated by metering the lots. all of this is fine and legal
until you forget to add your quarters and receive what is titled a "parking
notice". it comes in a nice bright pink window envelope EXACTLY
like buffalo's own orange parking tickets. it is printed on the spot
using the same technology as the city, looking EXACTLY like a city issued
ticket. it also notes an escalating fine amount based on how long it
takes you to pay it. $10 if you pay today, $30 if you pay tomorrow,
$75 if you take more than 14 days. all of this is highly illegal according
to the attorney general, who found "allright parking" guilty
of the same fraud in 2002. i have included the link to the attorney
general's statement below. all of those who fall for this scam and
it's printed threats are lining the pockets of marc croce. you can
even pay your violation online for a mere fee of $2.50, saving him from
having to pay another minimum wage employee to open his mail and take
it to the bank.
also a slobbering, loud, cussing pig that likes to use misogynistic/racial
slurs when mad at a staff member for having a piece of lint on their
shirt or accidentally leaving even one crumb on a customer's table.
all of his policies and behavior follow a reasonable line of thinking
when you realize how well connected he is with the local government
officials and mobsters.
nail this bastard to the wall with your brilliant irreverant paper!
beg you to withold my name as my husband is one of his downtrodden minimum
wage earning slaves.
just bought a personal plane that cost him more than half a million
left out the worst part—seven dollars for a couple of florets of broccoli!
Way to stick it to the man. We have an ugly feeling he’ll be able to
suss you out, but that’s not really our problem. Good luck.
