Melinda Romanoff

He looks more like a Shooting Clays kind of guy to me.

Melinda Romanoff

Ghhaaaa.

"Sporting Clays".

Rob Crawford

Perhaps "skeet" is a new slang term for heroin?

henry

No way Mel, he's a sooper soaker guy.

Rob Crawford

Wow.

I had an impulse to add "skeet" to the urban dictionary as a synonym for heroin, but what I found there is both funnier and more terrifying than anything I could have come up with.

It would explain why Menendez is getting so much cover from them; his perversions are relatively tame.

Stephanie

Killed da wabbit . Killed da wabbit.

Shhhhhhhhhhh . I'm hunting wabbits .

hehehehehehe .

President Elmer Fudd . And you thought Carter redux was bad .

daddy

For those who don't know, "Pull" is the command by the skeet shooter when he is ready and wants the guy controlling the device that slings out the clay disks to launch the clay disks. When I worked at the Skeet range as a kid, I would load the clay disks atop each other into the 2 mechanical slinging devices, located in the little wooden buildingat each end of the half circular skeet range. Then I'd have my electric controller in my hand and when he'd holler "Pull", I'd punch various buttons which would launch out the disks. This story, IMHO, is more "Pull my Finger" than "Pull."

FWIW, today I did the MET, and they had an excellent touring exhibition of armor and weapons. Most of it was medieval armor and pikes etc, but they had some very fine 17th, 18th and 19th "assault weapons" on display.I enjoyed that.

narciso

You 'forgot the spear and magic helmet' Stephanie, how have you been.

Jane - Mock the Media!

Boy Joe Biden must be one pissed off VP tonite. Anyone doubt that this 60 minutes thing (which I refuse to watch) is Hillary's anointment? And all they had to do was have Bill win him the election and Hill get him off the hook on Benghazi. Easy Peasy.

daddy

Back in the 2008 campaign Obama said, apparently with a straight face, that he once considered enlisting. Yes, in the military!

Gosh, what bad luck. First Hillary said she wanted to be a Marine, and now we find out that Barack wanted to sign up also.

Speaking at a lunch on Capitol Hill honoring military women, Hillary Rodham Clinton said that she once visited a recruiting office in Arkansas to inquire about joining the Marines.
She was 27 then, she said, and the Marine recruiter was about 21. She was interested in joining either the active forces or the reserves, she recalled, but was swiftly rebuffed by the recruiter, who took a dim view of her age and her thick glasses. 'Not Very Encouraging'

"You're too old, you can't see and you're a woman," Mrs. Clinton said she was told, adding that the recruiter dismissed her by suggesting she try the Army. "Maybe the dogs would take you," she recalled the recruiter saying.

What an enormous waste of talent and dedication our Military services missed out on from not signing up those two:(

Why any moment now I expect Bill Clinton will tell us that he didn't despise the SeaBees, only everybody else in uniform who was "reminiscent of Jengis Khan."

Here's an interesting comment at this Telegraph link - I go shooting all the time.

Back in 1993 the Government murdered 21 children some they shot and the rest they burned alive to disarm some God fearing people who never bothered anyone in Waco Tex.

My question is how many children will the Government murder trying to disarm the whole country and how many murdered children will CNN,NBC,CBS AND FOX be willing to cover up as they did with the Waco massacre?

Been fine . mostly reading here and avoiding politics to keep my blood pressure in check . Shutting off most of the other sites and news channels helps but am keeping up with y'all socially and keeping up with the news here .
usually after everyone has gone to bed . Australian open hours for me lately cause the
weather sux . I've been doing closets to stay busy otherwise .

How are you?

Rob-

TK also had the same, ummm, idea. And out of curiousity I went to the urban dictionary. I regret that I did.

narciso

Oh, it's a real 'den of scum and villainy' over there.

Janet

I already knew this - Obama: Tough call on letting a son play football...

His son woulda been Trayvon right? So his son woulda been into tea, skittles, & street fighting.

daddy

Just catching up but this is in agreement with Janet's comment 2 threads back:

Should all the newspapers & TV news shows have to print/read corrections for blaming Benghazi on the YouTube video? They are now acting like they agree with the POTUS & SoS that everyone KNEW it was a planned terrorist attack. Where in the world did ABC News even GET the idea it was caused by an obscure video?
""Innocence of Muslims" has been blamed for violent protests across the Middle East, including in Benghazi, Libya, where four Americans died,..."
Has been blamed by WHO?

It strikes me that President Bush did an enormous amount of preparation, investigation, intelligence gathering, and argument in winning Congress's vote, due to Saddam probably having Weapon's of Mass Destruction and all the rest. They all voted for it, yet ever since all we've heard is "Bush lied, people died."

With Benghazi, on the other hand, we had the entire Administration lying to us daily and telling us it was the Video, with scant to zero evidence for that and mountains of real time available evidence that in fact it had nothing to do with the Video. Yet now, 3 months later, we are supposed to completely accept the new party line of zero culpability, zero responsibility, zero apology for lying to us all that time, and "Oh, By the way, greatest Secretary of State and best Foreign Policy team ever." It's maddening.

Any objective observer would look at the 2 incidents side by side, and the blame game hypocrisy would make his head explode.

matt

Hillary was either dating or married to one of the leading draft dodgers of the time and she expects us to fall for that shit?

The Army must have been too femme for her.

As to that photo of Obama with an over/under in his hands, it's almost certainly doctored. The pose is unnatural. When shooting, like in golf, you follow through. He just sort of stopped.

And I doubt his SS guys would have allowed him to use the 99 cent earplugs. There are probably headphones there with the presidential seal.

But remember, he's from the South Side (snort). Him and the El Rukns are down.

A liberal blue state community organizer going shooting regularly is like me attending a My Little Pony convention. And the media put up with this bullshit without a question.

'...we do skeet shooting...'

Much like the clip / magazine semantics issue, folks who blast clay pidgeons say 'we shoot skeet'.

Or, 'I wreck cars...'

Yes, Matt, his signature essay in the 'Sundial', was 'Breaking the War Nentality' at Columbia, where he didn't think the nuclear freeze went far enough.

Jim Miller

daddy - Any thoughts on yesterday's James Stewart column in the NYT?

(So as not to be too obscure: Stewart says that Boeing has an implicit deal with Japan, Inc., and that might explain why Boeing picked GS Yuasa to make those burning Dreamliner batteries. You can find a link to the column at my site.)

Stephanie

lol beasts . aren't u in Bama? left a question on the other thread ...

Rob Crawford

Which country's?

--the 2 mechanical slinging devices--

Traps. So called because closely related trap shooting originated with live birds being released from a trap.

Janet

from the military story link - "The aspiration was not mentioned in either of his two volumes of memoirs."

Almost as though he made it up....

Tom links to Ace & Ace links to this 2008 Telegraph story. This bit at the end is interesting too -

""Understand what I did as a community organiser. When I got out of a college as a young person, 24, 25 years old, I moved to Chicago and worked with churches, who were dealing with steel plants that had closed in their neighbourhoods, to set up job training programmes for the unemployed and after-school programmes for youth."

He also tried to "deal with asbestos in homes with poor people - community service work - which John McCain has been talking about, putting country first and extolling the virtues of national service"."

Did one...ONE reporter ever look into what Barack Hussein Obama accomplished in Chicago? In charge of millions of dollars...worked there for years. What was made better? What got fixed?

Stephanie

I learned how to shoot trap at the Greenbrier. Lovely Remington 1100s. Unfortunately I'm left handed and they only had right eject guns. I persevered. Best trip with my parents ever except for one to Acapulco where I slid down the water slide and landed on top of Franco Harris a few weeks after the super bowl (74/5/6??). Like hitting a rock. Almost drowned when I realized who it was.

I'd take another trip to the Greenbrier over Acapulco now, though. In addition to the drug wars, the NFL is much more gangsta and much less into partying with the fans. Who wants to get shot by another Ray Lewis wannabe?

DrJ

What got fixed?

Did he have a pet (like a dog or cat)? Or an Alderman?

And yes, I rebel against the shorthand that an animal is "fixed" by neutering. It most likely would improve the Alderman, though.

24 / 25? How many years did it take for him to complete a 4 year degree?

What got fixed? You mean besides a few elections?

narciso

This segment in a Boston Globe piece, back in 2008, from a Malkin post;

…or all its impact on Obama, Altgeld Gardens today seems far from the kind of success story politicians like to tout. Dozens of buildings are boarded up, with fences surrounding much of the property. The roads are a potholed mess. Blinking lights illuminate a series of towers where police have mounted cameras.

Jim Miller

Judging by the picture he uses to illustrate the skeet shooting claim, Drudge is skeptical, too.

Thank you for the link to the High Line article, jimmyk. I came upon it by accident in my wanderings last spring and it was a real treat. Kind of a walk through people's backyards. Very creative use of old infrastructure.

Old Lurker

I took my wife skeet shooting at the Greenbriar on our honeymoon Steph. Only after the hangover wore off from the wedding.

Continuing the small world, my Dad also had the whole fam to Acapulco around the time you were there. I'm thinking 75 for us. Maybe 76.

Stephanie

Acapulco Princess. The company had such a good time we went back two years later. Either 74/76 or 75/77. Was at the Greenbrier in 79 or 80.

My dad took the whole family to Acapulco on one of the conventions... including grandmas, aunts and their friends (all southern baptists "tea totalers" (cough, cough :eyeroll:) in their late 60s early 70s first time out of country for all and several batty as hell). He was so frazzled by the end of the trip, he accidentally tipped the skycap $100 to take the luggage about 50 feet from curb to check in on the way home. He was lamenting such a poor tip and then realized he had tipped in pesos not pesatas or whatever they were as he thought. Poor dad.

Glanced at a Hearst laugher on what campaign promises Obama had fulfilled. Not even worth fisking. Total BS.

Watching Downton Abbey on PBS...I just wondered why PBS doesn't list the American taxpayers in their "This program made possible by..." list?

There is always a list of people & organizations & 'viewers like you'...but they don't list the American taxpayers.

--I took my wife skeet shooting at the Greenbriar on our honeymoon Steph.--

Isn't she the one who can't be in the same house with a gun?

His son woulda been Trayvon right? So his son woulda been into tea, skittles, & street fighting.

More like this could be used in a Clockwork Orange remake.

jimmyk

Ha, good catch, Janet. They should be honest and say "... viewers like you, plus the 98 percent of American taxpayers who aren't viewers but are forced to support us anyway. Suckers!"

Old Lurker

I told her I had outed her on her gun phobia the day I posted that Iggy and she swore it was still true. Then ten minutes later she said "but you know it was fun with those shot guns on our honeymoon". Of course by now I know more about female logic than I knew then.

Tonight is the night in DC that various people open their homes to host dinners prepared by top chefs who provide their labor free, with food and wine donated by top purveyors , served by volunteers to people who donate to charities that serve food year round to the poor.

24 / 25? How many years did it take for him to complete a 4 year degree?
He graduated in 1983 at almost 22 y.o., then worked "behind enemy lines" at a business newsletter in NYC for 2? years. Why Chicago for a hot house Hawaiian? Maybe he thought it was south of NYC.


Ralph L

Part of being able to move this forward is understanding the reality of guns in urban areas are very different from the realities of guns in rural areas,” said Obama.
He really doesn't know how to make his subject and verb agree. Surprised The Nude Republic didn't clean that up for him.

jimmyk

Maybe he thought it was south of NYC.

Heh, but I think he must have figured out that the real race-baiting extortion action was in there. NYC has no shortage of extortion, but it's more union-based, Al Sharpton notwithstanding (and he was just getting going around then, while Jesse Jackson had already hit his stride in Chicago, I suspect.

jimmyk

Ok, I mangled that, but you get the idea.

One assumes it was Ayers connections, who he probably met at Bank Street College, around the time he was at Columbia, or the various socialist conferences like those at Cooper Union, which was James Cone's headquarters.

I guess I'll move this onto the skeet thread:
My grandmother used to hunt with my grandfather before his first heart attack in 1940, when they told him to stop walking so much. Once, she forgot she was carrying his 12 gauge instead of her 410 and ended up on her back.

I can believe Obama fired a shotgun, but I'd like video proof he shot a skeet.

Trains

He really ran a drone?

35tww

I wonder if he "does skeet shooting" before or after he "does golf playing." Who talks that way? Certainly nobody who has ever shot skeet or sporting clays.

This is right up there with John Kerry crawling through the bushes on his belly with a high-powered rifle hunting deer.

Hee, TK, it was the leftist MSM and the Dems that exposed and pushed Watergate to the conclusion of Nixon resigning after threat of impeachment.

So many of us already know Obama's false bc, SSN and all the other scandals like F&F, Benghazi, and his allegiance to non-US interests. Except for Arpaio, the courts and Congress are not acting appropriately to remove him.
