Perfect headline, TomM!

Gus

FAST and FURIOUS.

Discuss.

Sara

Is this why Sandra Fluke went public?

Where's Verner when you need her? This Fluke is getting as complicated as tracking the VIPS connections.

Sara

From Facebook:

Emily Miller
George Clooney paid $100 to post bail in DC. It cost me $465 to register a gun. It's cheaper to be a criminal in this city.

Sara

Sounds pretty strained to me:

ENDORSEMENT: Chicago Tribune

"Presidential primaries are not for electing. They're for nominating candidates who, by talent and temperament, are qualified to lead and inspire all Americans. Romney is the least polarizing candidate in today's Republican field. He projects maturity and calm. He's fit to apply conservative ideals to the messy business of governing."

Ben Franklin

Heh. This, and yet no one is talking about Romney's Doomsday Prepper bunker in the basement of his La Jolla home. Isn't it some kind of fatwah for Mormons to have a minimum of 1 year supply of dehydrated food and a million rounds of ammo?

I mean, just in case he's not elected...

Rick Ballard

The President sends his money to T. Rowe Price to invest for him while giving your money and my money to High Speed Choo-Choo Chu to pass through to Solyndra and Fisker.

I vote to put a surveillance camera on the President 24-7 until we run him out of office.

Gus

Obama was dead broke and in hock driving a V-8 and mortgaged to the hilt. UNTIL Ayers wrote his book.

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

Just had a great meetup with Mel - but three simultaneous SAR missions have hit all at once this afternoon. Will have to catch up later...

Tonto

Just when you hope you've seen it all ...

Danube of Thought

With the exception of The Washington Times, however, no major U.S. media outlet reported this bombshell story.

Not a lot of minor ones did, either.

File charges, Sheriff Joe, or shut up.

Ignatz

No linky, keemosabe.

Tonto

Maybe this link will work?

Ben Franklin

" It cost me $465 to register a gun."

Where do you live, Sara? Are you including the cost of firearm?

pagar

Don't know if the Times will have time to investigate whether Uniview has any competitors because they are apparently all wee-weed up about a conservative judge possibly being elected.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/16/opinion/no-way-to-choose-a-judge.html?pagewanted=all

Those at the Times must live in mortal fear of the 10 Commandments coming into their lives.

Ben Franklin

Pravda is reporting the story, TK.

Waiting for Granma International to pick it up.

narciso

Well that's not so bad, but Spencer 'Insider
Trading' Bachus, also won, mind you, his opponent was suboptimum,

Charlie (Colorado)

Where do you live, Sara? Are you including the cost of firearm?

You know, you have a little trouble with reading comprehension. She's quoting Emily Miller, and that's *not* including the cost of the gun, in Washington, DC. As a result of her 10-month continuing series on getting a gun in DC, DC has recently relaxed its laws to be more closely in compliance with the Second Amendment.

Sara

Isn't it some kind of fatwah for Mormons to have a minimum of 1 year supply of dehydrated food and a million rounds of ammo?

Ben: It is a year's food storage, usually canned goods that can be rotated on a regular and replacement basis plus water or water treatment supplies. Never heard anything about ammo. Powdered milk is a popular food storage item because it comes in large water-proof plastic buckets and one can live on powdered milk for up to 3 months without significant risk to nutrition/health in an emergency.

Ben Franklin

Howzit hanging?

What If They Gave A Scandal And Nobody Came?

Then I suppose we'd never have heard about Monica's blue dress.

(I blame Stephanie's fun story from the previous link:)

KayyyyyyyRooooooo.

MarkO, I'm withholding Happy BirthDay greetings until your Dookies win. No sense in jinxing an ACC Team come Tourney time.

Sara

"She" is Emily Miller. It was a quote from her FB status. I'm not sure what you are pointing out. I took her comment to be one of pointing out the irony. Did I read it wrong, or did you take my posting it without my own comment, wrong?

Jane (Bad says Obama sucks)

Ya know it's pretty clear the laws only apply to white republicans in this country. No one is even investigating the robocall scandal, and lots of others. Obama is turning us into the old Soviet Union or Germany in the early Hitler days.

The constitution is done. There is certainly no equal protection under the law.

What slays me is that people like Ben celebrate that.

Threadkiller

Bens attributed the quote to you, Sara. Chaco enlightened Bens.

Sara

I like men, but these could change my mind about Jane's request.


Frau Nachbarin

Sara, you were perfectly clear. The weekend brings out the worst in trolls all over the internet. Drugs, alcohol, jealousy, and anger management issues all contribute.

Did you take the Charles Murray test mentioned on the last thread? It was fun, but I think it was geared more for men and those who eat out a lot, go to movies and watch popular programs on TV. Just my opinion.

Ben Franklin

"Chaco enlightened Bens."

Chaco is enlighten 'light'.

And stop calling me Bens.

Sara

Frau: I did. I posted my result, which was 47. I said on the previous thread, I figured it was Idol and knowing who Jimmie Johnson is. Or maybe it was Branson. Mostly I think it is from being a military wife for 30 years and living in the West for over 25 years.

narciso

Now of course, they are actually beyond parody, and when they are 'frogmarching'
Piers Morgan out of the studio.

Sara

Ben: I would think that you, living in Earthquake Country, would be quite versed in emergency preparedness. I know that decades before I ever heard of Mormon food storage, I had been well-trained in emergency supplies from my Mother, who grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. We didn't keep a full year, but she was always harping on having a fully stocked cupboard and back then, a fully stocked root cellar including shelves of home canned foods.

When Hurricane Hugo destroyed a good portion of South Carolina, including our home, one of the big calls put out was for paper goods. We did several truck runs full of toilet paper, disposable diapers, and feminine napkins, which we were told they were the most desperate to have, even over food.

Ben Franklin

Sara;

My ditty was 'tongue-in-cheek' because I know it is futile to have food and water stores without ammo to protect it.

It is impossible to prepare for every contingency, but i have prepared as much as possible. I

Danube of Thought

I didn't take the test because I never saw a link to it.

So the day before the Madness began I sent my buddy a one-sentence message: "Keep your eye on Missouri."

narciso

It's on Jane's You Too link, Danube.

Sara

That's okay DOT. You probably would have gotten about a 10 or less.

Sara

My ditty was 'tongue-in-cheek' because I know it is futile to have food and water stores without ammo to protect it.

Oh okay. Can't disagree with you.

Captain Hate

Calls to Fluke are important, but these are superfluous

I'm sure the family wants to praise Stedman for all the other things he does as AG that Issa and the rest of the meanies don't give him credit for. Btw I'm shocked that Anderson Cooper is staying on that story; I hope the social invitations don't start getting lost in the mail.

Jane (Bad says Obama sucks)

No it's not. I tweeted it and someone posted it in the last thread.

narciso

A kind of outre cartoon on PW reminded me, that there are people stupider than Duke and Duke, some long shot congressional candidate,
Farias somebody, did an ad against Darling
Debbie, not showcasing her 'unique brain patterns' but photoshopping her in a dog collar,

Frau Nachbarin

Sara, I knew you would score "up there." I didn't do well on the military. I did choose Branson,MO, never worked as a hod carrier but earned my varicosities as a waitress from high school through college.

Frau Nachbarin

Sara, here's "back atcha" for your 7:40.

Gack, Frau. Please post a warning in all CAPS before posting those kinds of pictures. lol.

I just watched a video of Mitt and Ann in Puerto Rico. They do love them there. Two things that stood out: Ann said that Puerto Ricans have taught the Romneys how to paaahrtee!! And their President said that Mitt understands that English is the language of business but that Spanish is the language of their prayers with their children at night and in their churches. Folks, this is called "connecting" with the people.

narciso

It's an old pic, but it's a bit of an antidote, to some of the earlier ones;

Captain Hate

I think the only other time Clenis and Muffer were that close the ugly duckling was hatched.

Sara

Frau: I think all these pics prove my Dad was right when he said that no male over 25 should ever go shirtless in public. That said, for a man who turned 65 a couple of days ago, I do think Romney looks in the best shape, even if I do think Gingrich has the best hair.

narciso

Ah from the folks behind the genius of Rock Center and the Chelsea show,;

Ignatz

Sorry, but I have to do something to counteract that 8:27 toxin.
A link will not serve as an adequate antidote:


Please, forgive me Jane. :)
And I have no further info on what the second girl is doing to that bush.

Donald

Gabe Knutson!

Ben Franklin

Ig;

Stop distracting us with cheesecake. If you want to help with morale, ask Frau to post a pic of her in her wool underwear.

Jack is Back!

I don't know how many upsets my brackets can take. Duke down to Lehigh and Michigan down to Ohio, Yikes.

DrJ

Iggie,

Now you did it. The Instalanche for this thread undoubtedly is a consequence of your pictures.

Gus

Ignatz, that pic of Rodham and Clinton. Far more offensive than anything you ever posted.
Including the Australian/Somalian.

Thomas Collins

No way, DrJ. Like Playboy, JOM is read for the articles.

Gus

Oh Dear Ignatz. I was too late.

centralcal

Iggy: I am just thankful and grateful that you chose to post those (PDT) after work hours!!!!! grin.

Really - my monitors (both large) are the first things clients see when they exit my boss's office. Now, at home, it is only my eyeballs!

Thanks, sweetie, for waiting until this hour to post those.

As for Bill and Hill - there is NEVER a good time. eyeroll.

henry

Dana, that is certainly bad news for Sen Galloway. My prayers go out to her and her family. On the politics, the WI Senate is not scheduled to do anything until after the Nov elections. Given redistricting control is not likely to change.

Ignatz

--Iggy: I am just thankful and grateful that you chose to post those (PDT) after work hours!!!!! grin.--

I will only do so from now on and only very sporadically, cc.
The link thing wasn't working, but no more T&A tsunamis either.
What are you doing wasting your employers' extremely well compensated time on such trivialities anyway, my dear? :)

narciso

Recall when that pic surfaced, right before the Lewinski brouhaha bubbled up.

narciso

Al right, who was the rocket surgeon. who thought Rosie O'Donnell would be the flagship
of the Oprah network, of course who thought the Oprah network was so smart an idea in the first place.

Captain Hate

Lehigh with the upset; I think their cheerleaders are gonna hit the all-you-can-eat buffet to celebrate. Condolences to Mark.

Clarice

I know you are really grieving about that, narciso. Me too.

narciso

Does the schadenfreude come through too much,

Jack is Back!

Look out your window to the Northwest and see Venus and Jupiter dating each other. Sky porn.

So, after tonight how is everyone's bracket doing?:)

Captain Hate

My brackets are slattered but I've actually gained ground in my group's pool.

DrJ

See something in the sky? Not here. We have flood advisories in all the counties around here. Lots and lots of rain. And clouds.

narciso

What were the odds that Lehign not to mention
the other team, would come up so soon, Captain .

Captain Hate

narc the odds were a lot slimmer than Lehigh's cheerleaders.

Gus

Wisconsin beats Vanderbilt.
Marquette whips Murray State.

Gus celebrates with a cold Pabst Blue Ribbon, corned beef, cabbage, red potatoes and soda bread.

Discuss.

Gus

Okay, I'll have a Guinness or a Murphy's, instead of a Pabst.

hit and run

Just watched the Duke game with a UNC grad/fan. I can't say I wasn't rooting for them just to piss him off.

Can't say I'm displeased that they lost either.

All in all a good night to hold court on the March Madness is for sissies meme. I love doing that here in NC (and everyone loves me for it!).

Oh,and my bracket?

Sturdy

Jack is Back!

Gus,

If only I could get a Rheingold, the last beer I ever drank.

Lehigh and Ohio win. If there is anyone here who had those two winning? If so, make yourself known and I will give you a silver feather.

narciso

Could they be a little more hacktastic, for every good move on Fast and Furious they do something like this;

http://theothermccain.com/2012/03/15/pornographic-politics-did-the-daily-caller-pull-a-media-matters-on-rick-santorum/

hit and run

Mostly I was rooting for the Dukesters because it's MarkO's birthday.

Which might make their loss my fault.

I'm willing to shoulder that burden.

narciso


No wonder he is so Untergang,

Frau Steingehirn

Gruss Gott, Chaco!

fdcol63

FSU won. Woo-hoo!

Threadkiller

Any weather reports from So Cal?

Charlie (Colorado)

Did I read it wrong, or did you take my posting it without my own comment, wrong?

Uh, Sara, did you notice who I quoted before responding? It wasn't actually you. I was actually defending your post.

Damned retrograde mercury anyway.

Rich K

Nice job of staying on topic people,,NOT!

Gus

We all need to root for Wisconsin and Marquette tomorrow.
It's just the proper thing to do.

narciso

On topic, shirley you can't be serious, well I tried for a bit.

MarkO

I ventured out to my daughter's dance concert, with Duke 2 up on some team seeded 15. In the course of the concert, Duke got exactly what it has deserved the entire year. It has freed up my weekends. My son texted me, "some present," but this team was no present to any seasoned Duke fan. There is a mystery here.

Thanks again for the kind wishes.

Captain Hate

I was actually defending your post.

Yeah I was pretty confused by the reaction.

Charlie (Colorado)

Gruss Gott, Chaco!

Ausgezeichnet! Ein Hüb'schæ Mäd'le!

Gus

So we've all agreed!!! Wisconsin and Marquette get all our best wishes, hopes and joo joo tomorrow??

hit and run

Nice job of staying on topic people,,NOT!

Your post,,was no more on topic,,than a pic of some young thing,,grabbing a bush.

But,,if you'd like to make an on topic post,,nobody's stopping you.......

Do you have something,,on topic worth saying?

Ignatz

Marquette always gets my sentimental support in honor of Al.

hit and run

On Topic: The Bill in AZ and Melinda meetup needs more elaboration.

Susanne

JIB,
I had both Ohio and Lehigh. Woot!
I also had Missouri....
