Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Zimmerman Trial - Start Making Stuff Up:

Comments

Charlie (Colorado)

This will be a long trial however short it is.

God, you ain't kidding.

narciso

Kafka called, I didn't intend 'the Trial' as how to guide, how are you doing Charlie,

MarkO

The criminal "justice" system in this country is broken. It is in need of massive change.

MarkO

Clapper had the question in advance and still lied about it.

If he doesn't go to jail, well, hell.

We're down to "less untruthful." How can anyone cite him as a credible authority on NSA actions?

This is no country for an old country.

The academics have been marched through, the advocates evoke hate, the government pervades the doctors' offices and the preachers have all gone to Heaven.

I heard the voice tape of a man screaming. I immediately thought it was Zimmerman.When they discover it was him they probably will exclude it as being prejudicial.

maryrose

Judiciary wants Holder back to testify again. I wonder what lies he'll tell this time.
Clapper should be charged with perjury. Let him prove he didn't lie.

MarkO

Dr. K talks about "threats that make your hair stand on end."

Just what are those?

AliceH

zombies, marko. obv.

MarkO

AliceH, do they have cell phones? Maybe old, dead Motorolas?

narciso

I was thinking that, Alice, specially the hypercharged ones from WW Z,

daddy

There is too much information to process today.

I catch bits and pieces of Levin and he is definitely worth listening to today. Hannity on the radio has some good stuff. Rush as well, and I need to listen to Dennis Miller. Also today Bret Baire and the FOX Shows. And Megyn Kelly. And I need to hear the recordings of Howie Carr grilling Kelly Ayotte yesterday. And I've got to read Insty's links and Drudge's links and the overseas reports via the UK Mail, the UK Telly, and whatever else new is popping up in the Guardian.

And I need to be watching CSPAN, because I know there's some good stuff there, but I'll never catch up and it won't make the news cycles anyhow.

And then we've got Immigration roaring thru the Senate, and the potential upcoming Tea Party Rally in DC, and my local Congress guys, etc etc etc.

It is a full time job just trying to keep reasonably informed, and I find that I am on the couch reading and typing, with the radio head set on, tuned to the Talk Radio Circuit---local and national, and flipping from FOX Business to FOX Regular to the baseball updates.

I think we will all have to accept that we will never catch up, and we will be blessed lucky if we can catch half of it and be able to do something constructive about 1/1000th of any of it.

Argggggggggh!

daddy

Dr. K talks about "threats that make your hair stand on end."

Just what are those?

MarkO,

He's obviously been receiving leaks from sources that he should not be receiving, so let's put Dr K under Oath.

Tell you what I'll get Judge Lamberth to sign the warrant to tap his phone and read his e-mails while you get his Staff member to ensure he doesn't post the notification to FOX that we're taping him. Or do you want to lie to Lamberth and I'll put the squeeze on the Staff underlings? It doesn't make much difference to me, I'm flexible, (tho' not "literally"as flexible as Snowden's girlfriend).

Then what say we round up some babes for some IRS line-dancing? I hear our Ambassador to Belgium is great at rounding up gals for that!

MarkO

daddy, all this and more will be ours when we sell the movie treatment to UA. I'm on hold with them now.

I am no longer afraid to submit a false affidavit to a Federal Judge or to lie with unvarnished gusto to Congress. Come and find me, you dogs.

Moreover, the entire Snowden matter began when his girlfriend said she would perform an unnatural act, which clearly she could.

daddy

MarkO,

That calls for a Snowden girlfriend pic, so for those of you a little behind in your reading...

MarkO

OK. Hong Kong and a multimillion dollar book deal with her or endless "gathering" (not "collection") of ones and zeros?

High school drop out, my ***.

narciso

One of the enduring mysteries of this tale, why would he leave her behind, on the trip to Hong Kong.

MarkO

Is that her behind in the picture?

daddy

Is that her behind in the picture?

Firm.

(Short pilot lingo for "affirmative:)

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

Shoulder blade muscles do nothing for me unless they are part of a rack of succulent baby back ribs.

MarkO

Anthropophagus?

narciso

Thinking of casting, Scarlett Johanson for this one,

4Jack is Back!2

I think the girlfriend should play Hillary.

MarkO

narc,

daddy and I have her signed for our thriller.

Her people are calling our people and their phones will have lunch at the Ivy.

"--Shoulder blade muscles do nothing for me unless they are part of a rack of succulent baby back ribs.--"

Arnie wishes his trapezius (trapzeii?) still looked that buff.

Let's take a pole!

4Jack is Back!2

Cross posting:

Well, you all have convinced me. The All-American Road Trip to Maine and the Maritimes it is but I just don't know what year. We were supposed to go to Europe this summer but decided to stay domestic since we needed to do some maintenance and upgrades at the Southampton house. Now we will be torn between the road trip and going to Europe next year.

Nice to have such dilemmas isn't it:) But Frederick is a budding photographer and is fascinated with shore and sea birds especially now that he has found the Puffin. He has to do a science entry in his journal for every week of vacation and that is 10 weeks. His first one is the Puffin and his second is GMO.

I am expecting one on the one-way trip to Mars eventually:)

BTW, the island with the Puffins that the Photogs all go for is called Machias Seal Island. Evidently, it is land disputed between Canada and the US. How come Hillary when she had the chance couldn't resolve this conflict with our northerly neighbor?

Ignatz

So, if Snowden is adjudged by Barry to have committed treason and aided AQ with his disclosures can't Barry add him to the list of people who he would like to drone to death?
If not, why not? Especially as he is now on foreign soil and has announced no intention of returning.

Captain Hate

I traveled all over Iceland without seeing a single puffin except on menus. Lots of blondes though...

Frau Quatsch

One of the enduring mysteries of this tale, why would he leave her behind, on the trip to Hong Kong.

narciso, *it* wasn't removable.
(Benny Hill- "What's that in the road, a head?)

Frau Quatsch

JiB @7:51 - that would deplete Hillary!'s war chest.

narciso

I walked right into that one, left her in Hawaii, on second thought Gemma Arterton.

maryrose

Iggy:
Ron Paul has expressed concern that in fact Snowden could be droned. If he was,we would never learn about it from the most transparent administration EVAH.

daddy

Rand Paul on O'Reilly this minute responding to "Is Snowden a good guy or a bad guy?"

Rand is complimentary of the guy, saying he has possibly acted nobly and is apparently performing an act of Civil Disobedience.

O'Reilly is doing a decent job of pressing Rand Paul for a better answer. Rand Paul does a decent job of continually turning the question back to the Constitutionally Question re: the 4th Amendment, and being specific about what specifically he considers unConstitutional and what he is proposing to do about it legislatively.

I actually need to see the darn thing in replay to get a better sense of the exchange, but I don't think either came off bad in the exchange---O'Reilly seemed tenacious, and Rand Paul seemed principled, and I didn't come away loathing either guy, which I frequently do.

narciso

Sorry to go so off thread, TM, but a year ago I honestly thought facts mattered to the law, I know who was being naive then.

Droning in China, I don't think so, nor in Russia, in Iceland maybe.

4Jack is Back!2

CH,

According to the research Frederick has done, Puffin is a family meal in the Faroe Islands as well as Iceland. Now, as a kid living in Reykavijk in the 50's I am sure my Mom avoided Puffin meat but who the hell knows - I may have eaten a wittle biddy birdy!

Don't tell Frederick.

Captain Hate

JiB, your secret is safe with me.

Somebody, maybe Frau, mentioned an Icelandic author last night. Halldor Laxness' "Independent People" is a superb read.

narciso

How did that last Denis Johnson novel end, Captain;

daddy

Narc and Jack and bgates,

On ABC Radio top of the hour news 2 hours back following a report on this NSA thing, they then turned to Florida Congressman Alan Grayson for his proposed legislation to deal with the problem.

It is nauseous to see that that despicable weasel is back in the good graces of the media and a "go to guy" for "leadership".

And here I thought vampires were hard to kill.

bgates

the already-febrile imaginations of Internet conspiracy jockeys were arguing that Martin was far from the baby-faced tween we’ve seen repeatedly
in other words, that he looked less like this

than like this

-which is true

but rather a six-foot
-the NYT had him at 6-1....

Does it really take the febrile imagination of an internet conspiracy jockey to think a person's appearance changes between the ages of twelve and 17? Mr (?) Cobb won't hear it from me; perhaps he can talk to someone more ideologically compatible. The State Department, for instance, seems to have several Obama appointees who are intimately familiar with the physical changes that occur during adolescence.

4Jack is Back!2

daddy,

Grayson goes nowhere but the sewer. He has no base but a bunch of low life moochers in his district.

On the other hand:

CH,

My favorite Icelandic writer of crime fiction

But like Iceland in the winter it can be depressing.

bgates

Rand is complimentary of the guy, saying he has possibly acted nobly and is apparently performing an act of Civil Disobedience.

Part of civil disobedience is enduring the penalty for breaking the law in order to demonstrate that the law is unjust. That's why nobody ever reads Dr King's famous "Letter from a London Hotel".

MarkO

Hadn't a-been for Grayson
I'd a-been in Tennessee

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

An 11 year old boy just sang a spectacular a cappella rendition of the National Anthem in Houston for the NBA finals. I hope it is on Youtube so you can hear it. It was pure, on pitch and had only a minimally tasteful amount of the melismatic stuff.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

If someone collected all of bgates's comments into book form that would be my pick for a summer read on the beach.

4Jack is Back!2

Jim Rhoads,

The NBA finals are in Houston? Does San Antonio know about this:)?

4Jack is Back!2

bgates,

Hey Hong Kong can be pretty depriving at times especially if there are no pole dancers.

Clarice

Mine, too, Iggie. I post them everywhere I can and everywhere I do people go nuts for them.

Frau Quatsch

JiB, that's the author I mentioned. Arnaldur Indriðason's first book was "Jar City." I don't know how to say "Doom" in Icelandic, but his work says it even in translation.

The Halldor Laxness' book I read and enjoyed immensely was "Paradise Reclaimed."

daddy

If someone collected all of bgates's comments into book form that would be my pick for a summer read on the beach.

Concur!

4Jack is Back!2

good nite all. time to catch come b-ball. but like e.e.cummings i am out of caps.

narciso

More of the Burns Omninet approach;

daddy

"Letter from a London Hotel".

BTW, Dennis Miller while in England the other day had a segment with the suggested name of an NFL Team if it moved to London. Many good suggestions, but "Werewolves of London" got perhaps the biggest laugh.

4Jack is Back!2

daddy,

At times just to confuse the guys at the local sports bar, I wear my London Monarchs jersey. I have yet had anyone of any sports trivia fame recognize it. But I was a season ticket holder just I like I was for the Memphis Showboats - both lasted a year.

I only wish I could find a hockey jersey for the defunct Macon Whoopees hockey team:)

narciso

'Do you understand the words, coming out of your mouth, Ari;

Captain Hate

It ended very nicely, narc; a very natural ending.

daddy

Hey Hong Kong can be pretty depriving at times especially if there are no pole dancers.

Trust me, there are plenty of pole dancers in Hong Kong:)

Tho' since 007 hung out at The Bottoms Up, they've pretty much all moved from Kowloon to Wan Chai.

Frau Quatsch

Way OT - narciso, no mention of "Burn Notice"final season?

daddy

Macon Whoopees hockey team:)

Great Team name JiB. Ha!

Glad Frederick's having a great time up in puffin-land.

Captain Hate

Would one of you people who might understand the personality of an enneffell owner better than moi explain why they have such a hard on for putting a team in London? LA I understand, even though it's been a failure twice before; but why London?

narciso

Well Thursday's going to be the 100th episode, which flashes back to when Michael and Fiona first met, they held to Horatio's sunglasses for 10 years, yet they practically kicked this show out the door.

4Jack is Back!2

daddy,

true story about Macon. Think SI did an article about it back in the 70's.

narc,

New Silva book out in mid-July. The English Girl. Gabe is back and in a real mystery.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

Sorry, JIB. Stupid mistake. But the kid sang the NA well.

narciso

Set in Corsica in part, like one of those pre Bourne Ludlums, the Matarese Circle,

MarkO

daddy,

And his hair was perfect.

Donald

Pepper Rogers!

Just sayin.

4Jack is Back!2

CH,

There are enough of American expats in London to fill Wembley every Sunday for a NFL game. Plus you have the Brits who love the game. Martin Johnson, the captain of the Rugby World Cup winners was a regular color commentator on Sky Sports for the NFL games broadcast.

The owner of the Jags, Shahk Khan is going to play 3 games in London starting 2014, I believe. He is a Pakistani/American and has a fondness for London. Hey, how about Tebow in London? As if the tabloids there have run out of shit to discuss:)

boatbuilder

"If someone collected all of bgates' comments into book form that would be my choice for a summer read on the beach."

Mine too. C'mon, Hit, get to work.

Clarice

Speaking of JOM books, where is Soylent and where's the JOM recipe book he promised us?

4Jack is Back!2

Donald,

And Reggie White:) He went down to Beale St. area to one of those pimp dress shops and bought like 50 pairs of socks. The next game we all waved socks:)

4Jack is Back!2

Clarice,

Yesterday, I made 4 mason jars full of icebox pickles and today I had Frederick taste them. It ruined hid dinner:) Finally have them back in the fridge.

Made a nice seared tuna over a mixed pea salad with buttermilk dressing tonight. Life is good and Mrs. JiB is dreaming:)

4Jack is Back!2

p.s. did i say i like the spurs in 7. i know its back in miami for 7 but i just think they are the superior team. but like i have said previously, i am most often more wrong than right.

Captain Hate

HOF Gary Neal. Lebron is a rhythm jump shooter and right now looks like poo.

daddy

Clarice,

On the recipe front, I have recently re-discovered an oldie but goody from my childhood:

The proper way to eat 'em, is you take off the top of the can with a can-opener and throw it away. Then you cover the open top with clear saran warp. Then you stick it in the fridge for a day or so until it's good and cold.

Then when you're hungry, you go take a fork, pull out the can, remove the saran wrap, and eat straight from the can! Yum! As delicious as it was when I was 12.

Then you put the saran wrap back on tight, and stick it back in the fridge.

MarkO

Listening to Lindsay Graham could put you off your feed.

No wonder our side is losing.

narciso

That's why I'm referring to 30 + year novels and current TV shows;

4Jack is Back!2

Just out of curiosity: Who the hell is going to hire Birdman Anderson after his career is up in the NBA? They guy is a freak and like Rodman, not worth the breath of air he breathes.

I know Ringling Brothers and Orange County Choppers.

rich@gmu

SA is looking good so far.

Clarice

Daddy, I love you--Find Soylent and persuade him to put that recipe in the nook. I dare you/

Clarice

My sour kosher dills have been a smash hit, JiB. No one's tasted the like since all the real old delis closed their doors. My bialys ain't bad wither and the bagels--ethereal.

MarkO

We came to town to see that old tattooed lady.
She was a sight to see, tattooed from head to knee
And on her jaw was the Royal Flying Corp and on her back was the Union Jack,
now could you ask for more?
All up and down her spine marched the Queen's own guards in line
and all around her hips sailed a fleet of battleships.

Captain Hate

Chris Anderson isn't a publicity hound like Rodman. He probably won't make smart decisions but he'll do it much more anonymously than Rodman, who is incredibly irritating and the MFM dotes on his stupidity.

daddy

Watching Rudy Gulianni on Greta's Show.

It is a huge shame that Rudy did not do a better job in the Repub Presidential Primaries than McCain did way back in 2008. Not that he's perfect, (nobody is) but he is so much better the Maverick. Pretty much I am always interested in Rudy's take on things, and it's refreshing because it's not always about Rudy.

4Jack is Back!2

Geebus, Mark O,

Why would you bring back the nostalgia of the Kingston Trio? They are so 60's or was it the 50's?

Clarice,

Mine are simple but boy are they tart and crunchy. I only hope they survive Frederick who is a pickle addict.

Captain Hate

daddy, I'm not the biggest Rudy fan in the world (I don't hate him either) but taking a governor or mayor is almost always greatly superior to choosing a Senator, which is almost completely lost on Top Men.

Clarice

Make more, keepyour pride and joy happy. JiB.

matt

Speaking of tattoos, I like this little ditty:

Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say, have you met Lydia?

Oh, Lydia The Tattooed Lady.
She has eyes that folks adore so,
and a torso even more so.

Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclo-pidia.
Oh Lydia The Queen of Tattoo.
On her back is The Battle of Waterloo.
Beside it, The Wreck of the Hesperus too.
And proudly above waves the red, white, and blue.

You can learn a lot from Lydia!

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

When her robe is unfurled she will show you the world,
if you step up and tell her where.
For a dime you can see Kankakee or Paree,
or Washington crossing The Delaware.

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say, have you met Lydia?
Lydia The Tattooed Lady.
When her muscles start relaxin',
up the hill comes Andrew Jackson.
Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclo-pidia.
Oh Lydia The Queen of them all.
For two bits she will do a mazurka in jazz,
with a view of Niagara that nobody has.
And on a clear day you can see Alcatraz.
You can learn a lot from Lydia!

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Come along and see Buffalo Bill with his lasso.
Just a little classic by Mendel Picasso.
Here is Captain Spaulding exploring the Amazon.
Here's Godiva, but with her pajamas on.

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Here is Grover Whelan unveilin' The Trilon.
Over on the west coast we have Treasure Isle-on.
Here's Nijinsky a-doin' the rhumba.
Here's her social security numba.

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclo-pidia.
Oh Lydia The Champ of them all.
She once swept an Admiral clear off his feet.
The ships on her hips made his heart skip a beat.
And now the old boy's in command of the fleet,

for he went and married Lydia!

I said Lydia...
(He said Lydia...)
They said Lydia...
We said Lydia, la, la!

jimmyk

Agreed on the bgates book. And as a second JOM entry I'd like a book of daddy's posts.

narciso

Wowza, I think that's the expression, the pics that the Daily Caller found from Kimberly Mills.

peter --- -... .- -- .- ... ..- -.-. -.- ...

Yip Harburg at his best. He was a lifelong socialist, however.

That eleven year old kid who sang the National Anthem is Sebasten De La Cruz.

4Jack is Back!2

matt, et. al.

I have no idea why people want to desecrate their bodies with tattoos. But I did have a boss who had a tiger on his ass. A Princeton thing.

More importantly, I believe it is a choice made in your 20's that you will regret in your 40's. I live in an area of Florida where it is prolifergate among young and even mature wowmen. Lots of them Mothers. Head to to toe. I look at them and their kids and I just cannot understand the mentality of desecration of your bod.

Maybe someone like DuDa or Dana can explain it to me.

Captain Hate

Pop is completely in Lebron's head.

4Jack is Back!2

Who the hell is Mike Miller? Sounds like a beer salesmen:)

Where the hell did he come from? I just don't watch the Heat that much. Frederick does but he's in bed. Miller is one 3 pt. scoring machine. Not enough I believe.

Captain Hate

Mike Miller was on Orlando when Doc Rivers coached them so he's been in the league a long time. A Florida Gator.

daddy

Off now with the pups.

Early today Fry got "lost" at Flattop. Momma was doing the morning walk, and he went ape back up some trail chasing ground squirrels, so she texted me to come search for him, so I found a leash, drove on up, and walked about a mile back to meet her for directions.

Then she took the girls to Tennis and I went way back and found the ashamed weasel all dirty after about a 40 minute hunt.

Here's some decent shots of what the trail he was lost on looks like.


He has been in the dog house figuratively all day, but now we're off for an easy evening stroll. Mid 60's, blue skies, and daylight forever. Haven't seen any stars in the sky now for close to 6 weeks due to so much daylight.

Go Spurs.

henry

US 1 - Panama 0! Still first half, but with Mexico getting another 0-0 tie at home this puts the US in control for WC qualifying.

4Jack is Back!2

daddy,

According to the sign, you are in Bear Country. If you meet one, can you ask him if they can recommend a good rug dealer:)?

Mike

Now I remember why I rarely come to this crappy site. The biggest disaster to hit the US in years - Illegal alien amnesty, and there is not a word here.

You people are pathetic sheep who have no idea what is coming.

4Jack is Back!2

henry,

Thanks for that. I am bored by the NBA. Now on to the USA v. Panama game.

4Jack is Back!2

Mike,

Read. Like in the posts. We discuss this ad naseum unlike you who just bitch and complain without any freeking idea why.
