The Walking Dead : Ash

Ash

Time for an analysis. It may bring him back, civilly raging.

Instantly disliked by Orson and hungry, probably because he is so insistently middle-of-the-road and determined not to offend. Well-liked by the majority of GD, for the same reasons. An unusual poster by TWD standards. Most TWD posters (at any rate the well known ones) were left-wing: Ash is odd both by virtue of his political orientation and his normalcy. Most right-wingers here are weird and awful: Cuck Venom, MMC2, etc. They are like fresh turds in the salad-bowl, socially speaking. Ash is right-wing without being blatantly stupid or socially inept. He is like a right-wing version of Corwin: not nearly as well-read or witty, but temperamentally similar. My reading of him is that, like all right-wing people, he is both repulsed and fascinated by academic leftists like myself. His background doesn't permit him to embrace any of my positions, but he can also see the silliness of the positions of his formal brethren.

Re: Ash

He's not here bro

Re: Ash

Good god, you don't say!

Re: Ash

He's a sock anyway.

Re: Ash

Not at all. He's an old-timer from TWD (before my time). Are you one of those paranoid sock hunters?

Re: Ash

He was a sock then, and he is a sock now!

Re: Ash

If you mean he wasn't using his real name then (and now), we are all socks.

Re: Ash

No, I mean like he is a sock. A persona. He isn't a real person.

Re: Ash

Hmmmm. And you know this…..how?

Re: Ash

Many years of observation. For reals.

Re: Ash

You may be right. I'm terrible at identifying socks.

Re: Ash

Same.

Re: Ash

Maybe he's a Corwin sock? Corwin wants to move gradually to the right, but without drawing too much attention to the shift.

Re: Ash

Lol! What?! Just because I am tired of arguing against people who ultimately want to keep their gun collections, social cost be damned. It's pointless, and as a foreigner, my view is not appreciated or wanted.

Re: Ash

Just kidding. Just the thought of you loaded down with weaponry makes me laugh!

Re: Ash

Sadly, I remain pretty much the same: mostly liberal and tolerant on social issues, more hard-nosed on international and security issue than many here, and more internationalist than probably all here.

And I have never owned a gun.

Re: Ash

I suspect that for MMC2.

Trolling for the Left.

Re: Ash



Re: Ash

you know he's an oath keeper?

yermom really should do the galaxy a favor and kill himself.

Re: Ash

Yes, it's rather endearing. Like a boy scout who takes out the rival team with explosive cookies.

Re: Ash

Spectre suffer from fixationitis. It's cute.

Re: Ash

Thank you for the analysis. Please allow me to comment and/or correct a few things.

Instantly disliked by Orson and hungry
Pretty spot on. Orson disliked me because masks don't work like he was saying they do. Hungary dislikes me for whatever reasons are his own. I at least respect hungary because he won't block anyone (that I am aware of.)

determined not to offend
Yea, I don't see a reason to in 99% of the time.

Most TWD posters (at any rate the well known ones) were left-wing
That seemed to be the case back when and still does today for the most part.

He is like a right-wing version of Corwin: not nearly as well-read or witty, but temperamentally similar.
I'll take that as a compliment. And while I may not be as well read in this current time of life, I'm sure I make up for it in experiences and practical applications. As for witty, I don't show that side here much. That's not to say I'm wittier than Corwin or others though, just that I still hold most things about me close to the vest here.

he is both repulsed and fascinated by academic leftists like myself
This intrigues me the most. I wouldn't say I am repulsed by academics nor fascinated with them considering I grew up primarily in a white collar home and I am married to a college professor myself. I also grew up with an appetite to learn when I was younger. However, I am able to see the ridiculous nature of how academics are so rooted in their "theory" that they have no concept of what things are like "outside of the laboratory" so to speak. I have several examples but that is for another time.

His background doesn't permit him to embrace any of my positions
Not the "Bentley" persona's inflammatory positions but I suspect the real Bentley, I could see, understand, and maybe agree to an extent with some things.

he can also see the silliness of the positions of his formal brethren
Absolutely! To know the real me is to know that I am not, nor would EVER become a member of a political party (though I considered it a couple of times.) It's mostly because I am too independent and individualistic to "lock in" with the company line. Partially, it's because I still believe in compromise and have a pragmatic understanding that, as the Rolling Stones said, you can't always get what you want but you get what you need. So I will definitely say when I feel "my side" does something wrong.


Thank you for the analysis. I appreciate the small amount of time you wasted on me.

Re: Ash

I feel like thus response as a whole is a great example of why you're probably the most laid back, cool peep here. Coming to think of it, I can't remember you ever really getting into heated fights or having a meltdown. you should be studied

For the record, I think you're one of the wittiest and smartest. You know you've inspired me in a bunch of ways personally, just from what you're always up to. You're always doing impressive, fun junk that's enriching your life and your kids lives. And I'm just like, liking your posts while I eat fried pickles

Re: Ash

He is a rather cool dude!

Re: Ash

And I'm just like, liking your posts while I eat fried pickles


This is why you’re the best, bee.

Re: Ash

Good God no

Re: Ash

Whew

Don't worry,I've got this. 👍👍 God bless you dad, I miss you so much.

Re: Ash

Re: Ash

Bentley bumped this to try and deflect the heat he's getting.

I agree that ash seems a really nice guy.

If taking drugs is uncool, I’m the most uncool motherfucker on the planet

Re: Ash

Ash and I are off board friends. He is a very cool guy. Very even tempered and thinks before speaking. Sweet guy.

Re: Ash

Thank you, O

Re: Ash

Oohh. Fried pickles.

Re: Ash

Those are good?

Good talk.

Re: Ash

REALLY good!

Re: Ash

Hell of an endorsement. Will give it a try

Good talk.

Re: Ash

I have not met a fried pickle I do not like

Re: Ash

Pickles are too salty for moi

Re: Ash

Try bread and butter fried pickles!

Re: Ash

In very limited quantities, they're not bad. Depends how they're made. As long as they're not over-battered, too.

Re: Ash

I’ll air fry a few later for fun

Good talk.

Re: Ash

I've been contemplating getting an air fryer for just that reason. Do you like using it? Do you really get the crisp-factor that regular frying accomplishes?

Air frying some lightly battered pickles is making my mouth water. Thanks Vlad. Just,….thanks!

Re: Ash

I have a ninja foodi indoor grill which can air fry. I got it because my apartment won’t let me own a real grill. The thing’s awesome and the air fry option’s amazing. Think air fried broccoli, potatoes, Brussel sprouts - really, anything. doesn’t need much in the way of oil, so relatively healthy.

The crisp factor is it, yes. But also it’s just really easy to use.

Good talk.

Re: Ash

Can you link me?

I like hearing about things first hand. I'll ask Cornell about hers too.

I want to get one specifically for veggies, as you mentioned. The whole reason is to avoid the fat content of deep frying. I eat a lot of veggies as it is, and would love to spice things up.

Re: Ash

Mine’s not a dedicated air fryer. But I use the grill and air fry function most often, so far.

Re: Ash

I love mine! Pizza heated up in the air fryer! I have made game hens, chickem, fried stuff… lots of stuff!

Re: Ash

Air fried pizza 😮

Good talk.
