Friday, I decided that Christopher Duke needed a wake up call to let him know about the shit he had stepped in. He had called me Thursday and admitted that he hadn’t been a Marine at all, let alone a sniper. His experience in weapons and tactics were limited to a time as a corrections officer. Well, then I was ready to drop the whole thing. But then, we heard from his friend Joe that was different from what he was telling folks face-to-face. Duke was still rocking the lie. So I decided that I need to call him back and let him know that we are serious about that lying shit.
Anyway, if you read his comment the other day, you know how the first twenty-five minutes of our conversation went. He told me what a nice guy he is, how smart is his daughter, all of the good work he does in his community, blah, blah blah. I patiently listened to him yammer on and on. I was polite and listened carefully.
Then the conversation kind of went south when he started telling me that I should moderate comments that he deemed were mean, or something. He reminded me of the countless conversations with Joe Teti who didn’t like that I allowed comments about him that he didn’t like. So the conversation drifted away from his phoniness to making him feel better about being a lying sack of shit. First of all I don’t like anyone telling me how to run my blog, you know, my business that I fund out of my pocket. Secondly, I’m not crazy about spending 25 minutes on the phone with phonies. So this is how the last few minutes of the phone call went (language warning);
My inner platoon sergeant kind of surfaced. That’s why I can’t be like Don Shipley. I have no patience with these assholes, and I hadn’t even combed my hair that morning. But needless to say, the website magically came down within an hour after that call. He had told me that it’d take a couple of days prior to that.
