Gingrich is done. Santorum is done. Mitt is the Republican nominee. Obama will crush him. It won't even be close. Indiana, North Carolina..unheard of will be heard again.

Jack is Back!

A lot of "walkback" on Zimmerman v. Martin scuffle in the news. Eyewitness #1 says scuffle on the grass not near sidewalk, #2 is 13 year old mother says was pressured by police. Stay tuned, all that to and fro on last thread may have been based on false information.

henry

WI will be an interesting primary. Tuesday's vote may get lost in the background due to the Walker recall mess. All 4 candidates are here (actually Paul is at UW in Madison). I get robocalls every half hour, they run 3-1 recall vs primary. Don't get caught up in the polls, turnout may be low because people are excited about Walker and not the primary.

Jack is Back!

henry,

Just saw the interview with the school custodian who was fired for having a Walker sign in the back of her car. The Fascists are officially in control of your school system.

AliceH

henry - so many new rules and judges issuing stays, I'm a bit lost on the rules in effect this go round.

Is there still same-day registration at the polls? Is VoterID in place/required? Is it an open Primary?

henry

JiB, that was on the radio a couple weeks ago. I had forgotten. This week has been an increasing flow of discoveries from the online recall db: reporters at a newspaper and TV station in Madison, local "Republican" elected officials (a mayor and a school board chairman) in Waukesha County, etc. the more they find, the more Breitbarts go looking. I think future school board candidates, judge candidates, town board candidates will get a vetting and have to explain themselves. I have some research to do before the Tuesday elections (plus pick an appropriate garden gnome).

henry

AliceH, it is possible the WI SC will act before Tuesday and change things, but not likely. Right now voter ID is out. Same day registration is in (?). It is an open primary.

Tuesday is the regular spring election (local offices / judges) plus the Pres Primaries.

Later today we expect the GAB to finalize dates for recall primaries and elections -- pending lawsuits on whatever they come up with.

AliceH

Thanks, Henry. In googling around, discovered WI seems to have a real problem with Military/Overseas ballots. From someplace on GAB website I found their statements that of 1851 municipal clerks
* 65 reported missing the Feb. 18 deadline for sending out ballots, delays ranging from 2 days to over 3 weeks
* 347 have not responded to multiple requests to the question.

That sounds pretty shoddy to me.

Piers Morgan is interviewing Zimmerman's brother.

Piers is saying that Zimmerman chased TM and Zimmerman's brother is trying to say that that is not factual.

Piers is saying that the Zimmerman's video from yesterday is proving that Zimmerman had no injuries. The brother replies he sees his brother with a swollen nose on the video having known him.

Each time Zimmerman's brother starts to reply in a reasonable manner that is factually opposite of what Piers Morgan suggests and wants to hear, Piers Morgan immediately interrupts the brothers comment and changes the question to another question that he obviously hopes will trip the brother up and make Zimmerman guilty of something equivalent to intentional manslaughter.

Piers is dying for an "Ah ha, Gotcha'!" moment from Zimmerman's brother. The brother in my view is doing an excellent job. I'm surprised he is doing the interview.

Piers says he has heard a tape where Zimmerman uses a racial epithet. The Brother refutes that.

AliceH

hey, daddy and JiB. A humble request: there are 100 Trayvon/Zimmerman threads to post on. Could we leave this one to every other topic?

AliceH

Just the 3 Primaries next Tuesday - DC (19 delegates), WI (42), and MD (37).

We've got school board elections here. I really don't know if it's appropriate for me to vote on that, given I have no info on any of the people running, and short of calling them at their homes and surveying them myself, don't know how I'd be able to find anything. Might just have to sit this one out.

daddy

No problem AliceH,

I'm off to work. I do find it ironic though that Piers is now trying to use a man who bit off a black mans ear, Mike Tyson, as some sort of Civil Right's spokesperson to comment on the interview he just had with Zimmerman's brother.

Bye.

Thank you, AliceH. If we had one hundredth the interest in making sure the prediction made in post one never comes true this world would be a 1000% better off.

Just one more and I’ll leave it alone…

Did the enterprising ABC reporter who got the video of Zimmerman arriving at the police department also get the 7/11 video of Trayvon buying Skittles and iced tea? It would be interesting to see how he looked the night of the incident.

Henry-- you are the man on the spot for all of us in Wisconsin.What do you see of the ChiTown Dem/union mafia moving into Wisc for summer and November elections? I imagine that the Dems/AFSCME/SEIU will use every trick fair and unfair to pull down Walker and his reforms. With Indiana going Right to Work, the Illinois mafia can't stand another free labor state to the north-- have you seen any reports like that. PS: good luck buying a lawn gnome.

Janet

Did the enterprising ABC reporter who got the video of Zimmerman arriving at the police department also get the 7/11 video of Trayvon buying Skittles and iced tea?

jwest, Here is an interesting post at Conservative Treehouse about how the ABC obtained video is a video of the video.

"Go look at it again. This footage is video of a video. Meaning that surveillance camera used in the police station does not move. Yet the video is moving and shadowing the police and Zimmerman.

This is footage taken on an i-phone by someone recording the screen at a Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) panel monitor and feed. You can tell in a few segments of the video that show the exterior frame of the monitor being filmed."

henry

NK, Rahm was in town yesterday with Milwaukee mayor Barret-- whether that was to pressure him to run in the recall or to get him to sit it out in favor of the union bought Falk is something we won't know for a while (he would have to file by Apr 10). The whole recall thing was run by the Chicago machine, they will be here in force from now until June.

AliceH

It seems MO is trying again to implement VoterID and explicit max # days for early voting. The ballot language submitted was shot down, but there's time to amend, resubmit and (maybe) get it approved in time for August or November ballots.

I also learned we already went through this process and implemented VoterID in 2006 (signed into law by Gov. Matt Blunt), but the Missouri Supreme Court struck it down.

Both R's leading the current effort are running for Secretary of State this year. Robin Carnahan (ptui) is not running again.

NK

Henry-- I assumed as much. So what does that mean? does it mean an avalanche of votes will be manufactured in emptied out Milwaukee precincts and the Dems take victory, or do 'real' people resent it enough to re-elect Walker? Your take? Again-- these Wisc reports are so important-- please keep it up. June could be huge, Walker wins-- again; Obamacare invalidated. Here's hoping.

AliceH, the MO SC is why the left likes appointed judges. You may need a constitutional amendment to get past them. (Naturally I forget what hoops that requires even though I had to read the MO Constitution to graduate high school).

Yes, the same person who gave us Souter, the ADA, increased taxes, urged Eastern Europe to proceed cautiously against throwing off the yoke of communism and ran such a brilliant campaign against Slick. Who wouldn't want him in their corner?

henry

NK, current CW is that Voter ID will be in place by the June recall election. Walker looks like a winner, but turnout is everything. For the rest of the recalls, they key is to have primaries so they all face the voters with Walker (the turnout thing again). Sarah Palin had a good writeup on the forgotten one, Lt Gov Rebecca Kleefisch. If she faces recall on a different date than Walker she is in big trouble. Other concerns in recalls: Galloway resigned from the senate (and her husband quot his job as well) due to an unspecified family emergency, an assemblyman from her district will try to hold for the Rs but this all happened late in the cycle. Van Waanggard is in a finicky district-- I have to get all my neighbors to show up and vote.

Given the redistricting is approved (senate anyway), the state senate will still be 17-16 R after November, then go strongly R after 2014.

AliceH

henry - I've forgotten most of what I learned through independent research about the "Missouri Approach" for appointing judges. My general recollection, though, is that it was a good thing, but there were some...questionable appointments that were just shy of abuse of the method. I guess I'll have to look into it again, in light of this new (to me) info.

narciso

'Poppy' was a nice guy, not the image of a one time spymaster, although that was a political post, He did understand that the Dems need to be beat decisively, something
McCain nor Dole, understood,

Jim Ryan

Maybe I'm missing something. Is there a plausible argument that the oil fields should not be depreciated and written off just like a capital equipment investment? Or is it just a flat out lie to call the deductions "oil subsidies"?

narciso

No, the Missouri Approach, yields the candidates least likely to confront the status quo, it limits the options to those
preferred by Duke and Duke,

henry

AliceH, my understanding of the MO method is the bar association submits three candidates for the Gov to choose one. Given the source all options will be lefties regardless of the political leanings of the Gov. The left in WI has been pushing the MO method here given the public will not vote lefty judges into the SC.

henry

The GAB will rubber stamp the staff certification of the recalls later today. initial elections would be set for May 8. Races requiring primary elections would then hold final recall elections on June 5. Right now, the Walker and Waanggard recalls will require primaries.

AliceH

More tasks on my "to do list" I guess. I certainly understand the negatives pointed out, but just need to point out definitely included my prior assessment the trusty "compared to WHAT" elements. Given the lack of even name recognition of judges, much less actual substantive info on rulings or abilities, I'm not sure general elections of judges leads to measurably good results.

jimmyk

Or is it just a flat out lie to call the deductions "oil subsidies"?

I believe it's a flat out lie, Jim. Like many depreciation rules, it may not closely match the decline in value of the asset, but the notion that it's just a tax loophole or subsidy is just leftist propaganda.

narciso

Granted, Alice, it's just one more thing, that narrows the options, in favor of the status quo,

Captain Hate

I'm still waiting for those donk spending cuts in return for the tax increases to kick in. I'm not sure who had his ear on that but whoever it was deceived him as much as Powell did.

Jim Ryan

I see, Jimmy. Yes, depreciation rules. I remember those from the three semesters of accounting I took not too long ago. Rough-and-ready rules, close enough.

Bill in AZ sez it's time for Obama/Holder murder trial in Mexico

Like many depreciation rules, it may not closely match the decline in value of the asset, but the notion that it's just a tax loophole or subsidy is just leftist propaganda.

No, I particularly enjoyed the one I took in grad school when I wasn't nearly as immature as I was as an undergrad. It has its own sort of logic that lends itself to IT applications.

Btw, per narc's Bolton link, is that what the Saint Trayvon nonsense was meant to obfuscate?

NK

CaptHate-- now now, let bygones be bygones, GHWB was a terrible conservative on fiscal and domestic policy, but he is a patriot and a lovely man. About 8-9 years ago I played golf in Greenwich with an 80+yo man who was a member of the family Bush Episcopal Church in Greenwich for decades. So I asked about the family-- he didn't know GWB, he said GHWB was a lovely man, good christian, Senator Prescott Bush?-- "a real sonofabitch". In dealing with Dems, I do wish GHWB was more like his dad.

How is that even possible? Of all the folks with no strong opinion on Obama's job performance, Obama wins by +14? That means (let's see, 28SA to 41SD means 31% left over . . . 2x-14=31 . . .) Romney pulls 8.5% of the undecided and Obama gets 22.5%? Egads.

Well, I see from the latest high-level endorsments that the fnork have spoken. No doubt the sheeple will follow, and Mitt will win the endorsement. I can't remember a time in my life where I was so unenthusiastic about the GOP candidates. (But the alternative is such a disaster . . .) Nose? Gonna be holding my whole face this time.

Ryan endorses Romney-- personally I'd be very satisfied with POTUS Romney, VP Rubio, treasury Sec Ryan, Sec State Petraeus. Very Solid Admin. repeal Obamacare, pass Ryan's Budget, frog march Bernanke back to Princeton, pump oil and gas, get jobs for everyone who wants one, save the republic. Works for me.

I'm taking TM at his word on the title of this thread for this OT.

What the heck is the difference between usage for sensual and sensuous?
Is it simply that sensual is used for sexual subjects and sensual is everything else?
Even after Binging it's still confusing.
I loved this explanation which is oh so clarifying;

These two words can be different although their meanings are same. They are both adjectives but are used with the following nouns frequently:
sensual~
-pleasure
-mouth
-desire
-woman
-voice

sensuous~
-mouth
-lips
-pleasure
-colour

It's not illegal to write notes on a U.S. Bill.

"The language of the U.S. Code as it applies to defacing currency restricts it to acts that individuals commit with an intention of defrauding others or making currency unfit for reissue. Other acts, such as writing notes on a bill or causing the kind of damage that occurs naturally, are not illegal. However, the U.S. Treasury discourages all types of currency manipulation."
