Skinny butt wimmen lifting weights? That's got to be the funniest thing I have ever seen. What are they doing, trying to be able to stand up straight when they are carrying a hundred and twenty pound baby? It is overkill, plain and simple. They don't need that.

Mocking out people who are participating in a fundraiser for cancer... Why don't you find people in your own area to mock out and stop posting on The Batavian. Nobody finds you funny except you

Yeah, but what about me Lori? Do I not bleed when I am cut? Do I not thirst when I am dry? Do I not care what you think? Hell no I don't care, I was a Batavian before you were born but I grew up. I troll for fun but you troll to shake your finger, Church Lady. She attacked me first Howard but I have been waiting a long time so you should give her a pass.
People don't read comments when there are no comments and why is everyone afraid to comment?

Making fun of women who are doing something to fight cancer is NOT something to joke about!

I was there covering the event, and those women were doing dead lift of 185lbs and more. They did 20 reps and then ran 1/2 mile. This was done in the heat.
This was also done for a great event and instead of trashing them, you should remain quiet. Some things just shouldn't be said

I did not attack you, period. I do not go to church, but if calling me "Church Lady" makes you feel like a big man, feel free. If you are indeed older than me, you should know that name calling is immature.

Thank you to Lisa and Julie for your posts. As a multi-time cancer survivor, anyone who thinks it's a topic to make fun of has serious problems.

George, you are an instigator and I'm surprised it took this long for someone to call you out.

Lori and Gail,
People would like you better if you could unclench your sphincters. Do you consider George Carlin an angry old Atheist drug addict that you are glad is dead? If you do you are a Republican and a good Christian. If you don't, then good for you. Do they have cable TV in Batavia? I know they didn't until a couple of years ago. When I was on Johnny Carson no one thought I was funny either but i'm still alive, what do you think now Johnny?

Lori I'm 62. If you are older than me I am very sorry for you because the end is just over the horizon even when in perfect health and I hope, but never pray, that you are in perfect health.
I don't hate Trump, I just love Hillary. Most people don't want their mom to become President but that doesn't mean that your twelve year old brother is a better choice. Words of wisdom from me to America.
