Clarice

On FB Chaco reports that Gore's network has dropped Olbermann. Is there anyone who has not yet fired him?

daddy

Is it recipe time yet?

daddy

Even better Clarice, It appears Olberman will sue.

Not certain if it's Gore who is the guy who is going to wind up being sued by Olberman but I can dream can't I?

Clarice

Even better, Olbermann's being replaced by Eliott Spitzer.

Clarice

I think I'll skip those eggs, daddy. Reminds me of my first visit to the open air market in long ago Jong Kong with all sorts o woldlife ties up in cages, being slaughtered, and--if large dragged thru the place.

henry

Wednesday evening news feature Rick bowling 3 strikes in a row. Thursday he bowled again and quit after 7 frames and a score of 78. He needs better advice.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Tomorrow he will be whining about how Mitt's money made him throw gutter balls or some such.

matt

He said:

Current was also founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.

She said:

“the claims against me in Current’s statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently.”

jimmyk

What would be his grounds for a lawsuit? Discrimination against the mentally challenged?

podesta

Looks like Zimmerman has some temper issues. Fired from his security job for flipping out. Restraining order from his ex-fiance. Shoving a cop. This wannabe cop was looking for a fight and he found one. He won, with the help of a gun. Now he's going to get arrested and charged. Good.

Gmax

Is being a gaping @sshole, a protected class these days?

podesta

Sorry, Gmax, no you are not protected.

Stephanie

Et voila, podesta appears.


Don't you love farce?
My fault, I fear.
I thought that you'd want what I want -
Sorry, my dear.
But where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns.
Quick, send in the clowns.

Sylvia is Stephen Sondheim.

OH SNAP, B*TCH!

Gmax

podesta as you know doubt will recognize, it takes one to know one.

Leroy Johnson

Sounds like Martin had worse anger issues, not to mention potential drug involvement. Why Martin had to savagely attack a Hispanic man is the question. Probably didn't like something the Hispanic guy said. Stick and stones. Martin started the physical attack and paid the price. I guess there was limit to no limit.

podesta

Stephanie. You have a point there. You should buy a hat and cover it up.

Gus

Podestard (he spotted me the T and A! And that is funny)
I'd like to see the companies RECORDS regarding White Zimmerman's employment.
Can you get those for us dumb phuck???

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!

Onion material.

Willy S

Maybe that thug Martin didn't like the fact that the Hispanic gentleman was a Democrat.

narciso

Of course, the story, conveniently has no names attached to it, much like the Haley story,

Jack is Back!

Sara,

If Mitt doesn't double down big time on the Obama crew and their request by demainding transcripts, girl friends, birth certificates, passports and SS cards, then he has lost me and I am better off spending the year on a world tour.

podesta

Gus. Gus(noun) a person who prattles nonsense and laughs hysterically at his own nonsense. Example: He is a Gus.

Jane

podesta and Ben and all you other Trayvon junkies - take it to a Trayvon thread. There is no reason for you to be involved in anything serious around here.

Scalia also joked that the task of having to review the complex bill violated the Eighth Amendment’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment.

“You really want us to go through these 2,700 pages?” he quipped. “Is this not totally unrealistic, that we are going to go through this enormous bill item by item and decide each one?”

The comments did not sit well with Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), a member of the Gang of 14, which in 2005 established guidelines for considering judicial nominees.

“I am concerned that Justice Scalia’s comments call into question his impartiality and instead suggest judicial activism,” Nelson said.

Nelson was taken aback by Scalia’s suggestion that reading the law was too much to expect of justices ruling on its constitutionality.

Scalia’s use of the term “Cornhusker Kickback," coined by GOP political operatives during the healthcare reform debate, also raised concerns — especially since Scalia appeared unaware the provision was scrapped before Obama signed the law.

“Scalia said [Wednesday] that it was totally unrealistic to read the whole law. Sen. Nelson didn’t think it was too much for the justices to know what they’re talking about when questioning the law’s content,” said Nelson spokesman Jake Thompson.

"we do not know all the facts. Let the professionals handle it."

Ah, Nino just rubbishing Nelson's 'settling on the price' neccessary for the deal, a touch
of Alinsky,

Gmax

The horrible week for the lefties just keep kicking them in the nuts:

Sorry Daily Kos. Sorry Little Green Troll.
Unlike the #occupy movement… Sexual assault charges were dropped against the supposed tea party “leader” Michael Kobulnicky yesterday. There was no rape, kidnapping and sexual assault. The victim accused the wrong man.

You still got Al Sharpton and escalating violence. Go with it. Please go with it.

Ignatz

If nothing else this episode should demonstrate to Hispanics just exactly where they rate on the Democrat racial grievance pecking order.

narciso

I think Keef might be obsequiously anti American to work for RT, then again he doesn't
bring anything special to the deal.

matt

How long would it take for the Justices themselves to read and analyze every page? How many clerks does each have? How well can those clerks analyze each and every clause and come up with the legal arguments for and against?

Wasn't the case argued on narrow grounds that were critical to the legality of the law? Didn't the 26 states' Attorney's General plead the case in a manner which would get to the heart of the legal issues?

Senator Nelson is looking at his special deal becoming perhaps one of the reasons cited for the overturn of the law. Senator Nelson has a credibility and political problem with that. Senator Nelson should have read the before he passed it in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve. Boo Hoo Senator Nelson. If it goes down you can blame those right wing fascists instead of your own corruption, poor judgment, and incompetence.

Gmax

Zero was trashed by the Supremes, his EPA was bitch slapped by the 5th Circuit so hard it knocked him on his podesta, and then Peggy Nooner just squatted and peed all over him and the democrats.

You cant win with just moonbats boys, bend over and grab your ankles.

Probably shouldn't do the amateur analysis stuff, Ben.
Even if the stuff you quote is true, a big if, it is not indicative of BPD, which is usually marked by episodes of self harm.

Hmmm, a Santorum push poll. No questions about the economy, only abortion & gay marriage.

Gmax. Do you often equate legislative and judicial process with being sodomized? Is this an analogy you use frequently? Signed, Concerned Citizen.

McClintock read it:

" 3,400 Shalls

November 7, 2009 8:11 PM

House Chamber, Washington D.C. November 7, 2009. M. Speaker: The question before us comes to this: will Congress force American families to surrender control of their health care to the federal bureaucracy?

There’s nothing optional about this law – the word “shall” appears 3,400 times in it –each time backed by the full force of the government.

You shall only get your health care through the government exchange.

You shall only select among the healthcare plans that the government czar has approved for you, whether they fit your family’s needs or not.

You shall buy a government-approved plan and pay for every government-imposed mandate in it through higher premiums, lower wages or higher taxes – and you’ll face steep fines and even federal prison if you decline to do so.

You “Shall” 3,400 times.

Whenever such a system is imposed, the result is always the same: massive cost overruns followed by a brutal rationing of care.

Instead of destroying everything that’s good about American health care, shouldn’t we first repair what’s wrong?

Primum non nocere – first, do no harm."

matt

No. It's their job to try the case made before them. They can consider all of the issues, but that could lead to considering all sorts of irrelevant bullshit, to use the legal term. The Court has only so much time and if you have ever spent time in court, you try the case you have.

This one isn't going to be decided on a technicality it is a case of Constitutional law and the key issues are well defined.

Please call your state's attorney general's office for a better explanation and don't waste our time.

Gmax

Wiping the tears from my eyes from this Surber line:

“Solicitor General Donald Verrilli was overmatched and ill-prepared, displaying once again why socialism fails: It leads to the appointment of unemployable nephews and political hangers on to positions for which they are ill-suited.”

Did I mention the clown is a Democrat?

narciso

It would take two weeks to untangle all of this Medusa like contraption, but that's a good overview Gmax,

Jack is Back!

Well, Ben, you're a big time college professor how much of this have you read in order to educate your students and yourself? But that is not how the Supremes work. The bill (if you want to call a Montgomery Ward catalog of BS a bill) was only challenged on specific provisions. And remember, Ben, the bill has no severability clause, so, its not necessary to connect dots and read the whole thing. I am not a lawyer but then I didn't go to a fourth rate school like Pissoir either.

narciso

The problem is most of it, is statutory language 'Where the Secretary may direct'leading to tens of thousands of pages of regulations, same with Dodd Frank.

Jane

So what would you do if you win mega-millions tonite?

I would start a matching program in my county - where I would match donations to wounded warriors up to a million $$ a year forever.

I would give all family members $100k with the caveat that they aren't getting another dime until I'm dead so they better spend it wisely.

I would buy a house in another country - to be determined - or if I can find one, buy an island for us.

I might buy a radio station.

I would not quit my job but get rid of all of my cases but one, and quit when that is done.

That's for starters.

So what would you do?

Gmax

being sodomized?

Relax podesta, with your head buried so far up there, there is just not much for you to worry about on that front...

narciso

Well JiB, he did as off last spring, subject his students to the same nutroots garbage,
that he spams us with, with some exceptions,
like John Taylor's analysis of the financial crisis, so they consequently are always 'unexpectedly's surprised by results like this.

That book by a former Goldman partner Kiernan, who was more clueless than his derivatives partner, Smith, in his farewell from WolfRam and Hart.

podesta

Gmax. Disinherit your own rhetoric if you want. Yet, you continue..it's you're reputation.

If someone should HAVE to read it, shouldn't it be the Highest Court?

The legislators have to go first.

The endless summer.  It's always the next wave that will get me through the shark infested waters for the ride of my life.

Long ago I got bored spending the imaginary money I might win at the lottery, but I get my moneysworth in entertainment value trying to figure out how to keep an end of the rainbow windfall from ruining me.
====================

Danube of Thought

So all that stuff about Nikki Haley was bullshit?

ABC News has learned that the Internal Revenue Service never conducted an investigation into South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s involvement in a Sikh temple’s finances. Nanette Downing, Director of EO Examinations, stated in the letter, “…we did not conduct an examination for the above period (tax year ended 2009)”.

Eric Hill, a program manager at the IRS, said in a separate letter to Haley’s chief of staff Tim Pearson that “we determined an examination was not warranted at that time.”

Earlier this week, Logan Smith wrote for a little-known website, The Palmetto Public Record, that Haley, a Republican, faced a federal investigation of her finances and those of the Sikh Religious Society, with which her family has been associated

podesta

Jane. I'm predictable. I would give most all the money to my family and friends, quit my job, and buy a farm with geese and sheep and drink Jack Daniels until the sun rises.

narciso

Yup, Danube, all carp which was obvious for anyone who looked beyond the headline,

Ignatz

--So all that stuff about Nikki Haley was bullshit?--

Shocking.

Barbara
I would buy a house in another country - to be determined - or if I can find one, buy an island for us.

Yes please, Jane! When Obama issues another encroaching, dictatorial edict (aka "Executive Directive"), I am comforted by the thought of taking refuge on St. Jane's Island. If we take the country back and secure our freedoms, St. Jane's can become a vacation resort for weary JOMers. Right?

Ignatz

--So what would you do if you win mega-millions tonite?--

Funnel it all to the Cayman's as soon as possible since I didn't buy a ticket.

narciso

Yet it didn't stop the Daily Caller and other publications from running with it,

Threadkiller

I would make commercials where all the actors are stupid, instead of just the white males.

Danube of Thought

it didn't stop the Daily Caller

Plus Yahoo News and others.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

JiB: I posted the tax filings link on a Romney group on Facebook. This group is made up of some of his most avid supporters and campaign workers. The response was almost word for word the same as yours.

narciso

Just like this piece, that mixes unsourced garbage with irrelevancies to come to a false conclusion;


http://dailycaller.com/2012/03/30/new-details-darken-outlook-for-zimmermans-claims-of-self-defense/

Clarice

Well, Ig has a point cause I never bought a ticket, but assuming I got away with not buying one and winning anyway, I'd spend it on good times, yachts, private planes.I'd give some to my kids and to Janet for her good deeds,some to the handful of charities I like, but I'd make sure there wasn't a drop left to be put into one of those foundations that in two generations would be working like the others at destroying what's left of the US.

Jack is Back!

Jane,

First, I would buy everyone here a crate of Tito's vodka so we can all enjoy a martine everynight as we blog to each other.

Then, I would buy Hit a deck so he doesn't have to sit outside in his driveway.

I would buy henry a D-9 Cat that he can drive back and forth all day behind his neighbors yard.

For CH, I would buy Direct TV so he watch the Terps and the Skins on demand.

For daddy, a second hand bookstore in Paris that specializes in archaic bon mots of literature.

For narciso, a whaling ship with a real live harpoon that can be fired all the way to Cuba.

For TK, a date with Orly Taitz.

For DoT, I'd name an aircraft carrier after his grand dad.

For Tom McGuire, a guest role on CSI or NCIS

For CC, a Harlequin novel about a garden gnome who comes alive after being kissed by a California girl and ends up becoming President.

For Janet, a nicotine patch and a seat on the Fairfax county commission.

For Clarice, the world-wide concession on pikes, pistolas, gibbets and pizza ovens.

For MEL, the first elected conservative mayor of Chicago (nah, forget that).

For NK, a chance meetup with jwest in some dark alley in Merien, CT.

For Jane, a Guinnesses world record record of all her WINS!

For GMAX, a Tom Izzo authographed smile:)

For bgates, A sense of humor

For Sue, a Rangers World Series. But I draw the line at anything good for the Cowboys. In fact, I will spend the rest of my money buying out Dan Snyder and owning the Skins myself.

For Sara, a strong and determined and tough Romney. Anything less then we are screwed big time.

But I figure I still have most of it available to spend on a private jet, oil exploration and funding conservative candidates to my heart's content.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

JiB:

Here is one example:

This is perfect for the Romney campaign. Obama has cast down the challenge. Romney can "double down" and he doesn't have to even ask for anything birth certificate related. All he has to do to make Obama look worse, assuming that is possible, is to bundle them with passport, visa, college transcripts, Selective Service documents, etc. and propose an exchange of all the same. I want to see who flinches!
Clarice

Iowahawk on Olbermann:


If you've been fired from your last 3 jobs and replaced by Skip Bayless, Al Sharpton and Eliot Spitzer, I'm thinking it's time to consider another line of work.

Clarice

Thanks, JiB. I've got my fingers crossed.

Threadkiller

JiB, would you be insulted if I trade with bgates?

Clarice

narciso, the daily news and daily caller pieces really are B.s. tied up in a ribbon

AliceH

So what would you do if you win mega-millions tonite?

I'd hire one of those extroverted accountants.

Then I'd lobby for a Lotto Ticket Mandate for all. Stimulus Unbound!

narciso

Thanks, JiB, you know Clarice, it really is, unnamed persons (who if you take them at face value, were themselves involved in illegal activities) but the 'two minute hate' won't generate itself, you know,

narciso

Now if I'm going for the fantastic, I prefer
La Femme Nikita, where Section is ruthless and efficient, not the likely sloppiness.

Clarice

And yet when the evidence re people like Edwards and Kerry is crystal clear they cannot bring themselves to write about it. Got it.

Reading your list (with several deep belly laughs), you are a very hip Santa Clause with the Midas touch!! Put cindyk on that list with my hope of meeting up with each one of you, shaking your hands, and saying: "Howdy Friend"!

Threadkiller

CNN broad believes that when police dispatchers ask the color of a person, for purposes of identification, it is some sort of "subliminal racism".

I should feel better soon. Watching this is helping me purge.

Danube of Thought

Looks like Zimmerman has some temper issues. Fired from his security job for flipping out. Restraining order from his ex-fiance. Shoving a cop.

Always a shame to disappoint a lynch mob, but none of that will be admissible at trial, should a trial occur.

what Verelli would have loved to say Alito, Roberts, and Scalia this week

Whose interrupting, narciso?

danube. Sorry to disappoint you, but my comments were not intended for a jury, but for a blog thread. Your lynch mob comment is worthy of Al Sharpton.

Drudge never has anything. Lame, boring propaganda.

Alas, I didn't buy a lotto ticket. However, I did last week when it was quite a bit smaller ($300 some odd million) and then I regretted it. It is too much money and life would be ruined. Then I remembered how unlucky I am and was able to have a good night's sleep.

Instead, I am hoping one of my children win and take care of Mama in her dotage!

Danube of Thought

"Drudge never has anything. Lame, boring propaganda."

Like Monica Lewinsky.

Let's face it, dope, until I told you otherwise you thought that anti-Hispanic gossip was gonna cook Zimmerman's goose. You're disappointed now, and it shows. I'm glad.

Jane

Jib,

I love that list. The best part about winning money is not having to worry about money.

Interesting, David Hagberg suggested this, in one of his novels, not the family part

centralcal

One thing I mentioned some threads ago, that no one else seems to want to discuss (ha ha) is that Zimmerman ain't gonna get any "hispanic" or "latino" support at all. Primarily because his surname is Zimmerman. It is all about La Raza and his name just won't cut it.

No marches in the streets. No waving of Mexican flags, etc. Besides, Peru? Seriously, how hispanic can that be to the latino race mongers?

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

A blog thread hasn't put one person in jail to the best of my knowledge and belief.

centralcal

The best part about winning money is not having to worry about money.

I think you are so wrong on that Jane. I think one's worries would only grow as large as the payout. Granted, sensible people would handle the winnings appropriately, it is all those who know the winner and have a gleam of $$$$ in their eyes that would be the nightmare.

AliceH

CC: It's more probable you'd know a lottery winner than be a lottery winner, so you've got the better plan going for you.

Danube of Thought

Hear about the NBA dude who bought $10,000 worth of these lottery tickets as an investment? Anybody wonder wlhy 70% of those guys are broke five years after leaving the league?
