what a bunch of bullshit. The operation was run by the UK and it was a UK agent whose cover was blown. The Brits were livid.

In the secret world, one doesn't talk about fight club.

These people will lie to our faces and then just blow it off when challenged. Scumbags.

They were looking to score some cheap national security points for the election all along.Brennan has been a primary source for the leaks.

Thank you TomM and Matt-- you guys really nailed the explanation of what's going on here.
The difference between the GWB Nat'l Sec people and the Obamaniacs? The Obamaniacs really do pervert Intel for political reasons, in the exact way they falsely accused GWB of doing.

I've related the incident to the Departed,
Di Caprio's Costigan character, who was close enough by family ties, to the mob that
he could pass as one, similarly the subject would likely be from the tribes of perhaps

"...An estimated one billion board feet of fire killed timber can still be salvaged out of forests that have been devastated by the Yosemite Rim fire.  Immediate action is required, however, because after a short period of time the timber declines until it becomes unsalvageable.  The amendment authored by Congressman McClintock streamlines the process by waiving judicial review of salvage plans for the 2013 fires..."

--"...An estimated one billion board feet of fire killed timber can still be salvaged out of forests that have been devastated by the Yosemite Rim fire. Immediate action is required, however, because after a short period of time the timber declines until it becomes unsalvageable.--

A couple of problems, TK;
1. There is only one mill relatively nearby and a billion feet is about ten years supply. There is one other mill far down below Fresno and it's even smaller. After next summer the wood is pretty much worthless.

2. Forest Service timber cannot be exported (except for certain Alaska sales), the only other possible outlet to sell the wood.

3. Almost none of it can be gotten out this year under any circumstances because available loggers are being used to salvage private land that got burnt first and the logging season ends out here in mid Nov and starts back up usually in May.

Frau Rhoenrad

Brennan? Every culture I know of has a proverb about being known by the company you keep.

Oh, boy! Wendy Davis has announced she is throwing her Ladyparts into the TX governor's race. In preparation, will the Goracle have time to check out her lower chakra?

daddy

Just in from the morning Dogwalk and had on Sean Hannity's Radio Show. He had on Louis Gommert of Texas and 1 other Rep, and they both said that they had just received a call from Boehner's Office pushing a new House Bill of some sort (even before they receive the Senate's response to what they voted on last week and sent to the Senate) calling for the suspension of 1 year and I forget what else, and that the House members should vote for it, even before having a chance to read it because Boehner says its all stuff they have previously voted on. I can't be more specific, but both Gommert and the other guy were very critical of the lack of Republican Leadership in the House, so time to catch-up and see if we've surrendered yet and what sort of terms we're offering.

I hope I misunderstood Gommert completely.

Timber industry suffers as loggers blame federal regs for lost jobs

In the last two decades since the spotted owl was listed as an endangered species, more than 200 sawmills have closed in the Pacific Northwest directly killing 40,000 good-paying jobs.

Why the change by Reid from Dec.15th to November 15th? I am referring to the continuing resolution.
Bammy won't negotiate medical parts tax according to Carney. Even Reid calls it stupid. Is Obama stuck on stupid?

Ignatz

I may have said this before but the timber industry's previous reliance on Federal timber was a serious market distorting government intervention.

The Feds cut more than the market required and seriously depressed demand and prices for private timber.

Imagine the Federal government growing on their own land twice as much corn and wheat as anyone else and dumping it on the open market; that's about what the timber industry was like.

The mills that closed were almost exclusively those that depended all or mostly on Federal timber and had little or no land base of their own. Moreover those jobs and mills would have been lost anyway come 2009.

naryrose

Late term abortions are not supported by the majority of the people in Texas. She should move and run in New York or Boston with that agenda.Hey,it worked for Hillary. Arkansas people wouldn't give Hil a wate management job so she had to go to New York state to spin her lies. People in Arkansas were on to her.

Today may be the last chance for Sue's Texas Ranger's to stay alive and squeak into the American League Wild Card Playoffs, so even tho' all sensible people despise the Dallas Cowboys, the Houston Astro's, Mark Cuban, Jerry Jones, John Cornyn, Wendy Davis, Ronnie Earle, Ma Richards, David Gates and Bread, The Steve Miller Band, LBJ, Tex-Mex, mullets, country music (exceptin' Merle Haggard), Urban Cowboy, Johnny Manziel hype, JR Ewing, that Hook 'em Horns hand gesture, Shiner Bock, the heat, Javelinas, the Super Conducting Super Collider, the lack of decent nightlife in Corpus Christi, their inability to cook Bar-B-Q the proper North Carolina way, Tony Romo and whatever pig he's dating lately, and the fact that Texas is such a Teeny Tiny State, I think we ought to all overlook that stuff and pull for Sue's Texas Rangers today as they take on the Angels.

When Americans can get their heads out their arses and think of more than regional and continental issues, the storm will continue to stink up both the local and World stage.

More delicious:

"Meghan McCain, like her father Senator John McCain (R-AZ), is the kind of Republican the media adores. Namely, both father and daughter love to smite their own party. That offers each a modicum of media protection. The elder McCain´s media shield evaporated when he ran for the White House in 2008, and now his daughter´s force field is ebbing thanks to her new not-a-reality-show Raising McCain on the new Pivot channel. Matthew Gilbert of The Boston Globe said the show offers 'new depths of irritation waiting to be plumbed.'"

"White House press secretary Jay Carney mocked Republican demands that their agenda be considered as part of talks to raise the debt ceiling, saying the GOP proposals were missing only legislation questioning the president's birthplace.

Carney dismissed suggestion that the White House discuss the Keystone XL pipeline or other items on the GOP wish list that have been floated as concessions Republicans would seek from White House would make in exchange for a debt ceiling increase.

"The only thing I didn’t see on it was a birther bill attached to it,” Carney said"

A fine example of how the GOP is damned no matter what. The Republicans in the House are birthers?

Just about off on the afternoon DogWalk, but I've got a question having seen that Canadian Coin Ad again for that boring Polar Bear/Queen Liz Silver coin:

If they replaced Liz on the coin with Camilla, do you think that would spur the economy, because everyone would be trying desperately to unload that coin to some other poor sap, or would it cripple the economy because everyone would refuse to take ownership of one of the dang things for services rendered?

Same question for Princess Kate, just the other way round: Would she spark a boom in coins changing hands, or coin hoarders hoarding them for themselves?

Perhaps in the long run it's better just to stick with boring Old Queen Liz and not risk a crisis on the money supply.

Kayrooooooooo!

BB Key, like I said I thought they looked fine. I'm probably too rough on the Hokies than I should be for a couple of reasons. First Beamer always brought his A gameplan against fat Ralf and your guys slattered us. Second, the Bojangles conferences Top Men had a chance to jettison the Hoos and their empty trophy case when whatever clown was governor demanded that they take Tech or else; and as usual those goobers did the wrong thing.

Georgia's always a brick shy of a load. I can't stand Squirrelier. Auburn? Meh. Vandy will probably always be just a couple of players away. The Vols and Methcats should be dropped from the conference. Florida lost their QB and probably weren't good anyway.

Asleep at the Wheel has been keeping the Texas Playboys flame burning for quite a while. Bob hit the bottle pretty hard. You could gauge how in the bag he was by the number of times he'd cry out in the songs. If you listen to a Bear Family collection of everything Bob and the Texas Playboys recorded, there are a few sessions where Bob was absent because he was drying out.

Unfortunately, Texas Mexican food hardly deserves to have the word Mexican involved where I come from. Went to the best place in San Antone and was deeply disappointed.

Mexico has 7 major regional cuisines and I love to cook all of them. I once spent an entire evening trying to get my pumpkin mole' just right and it came out fantastic.

There is a place on Melrose Blvd in LA that has been there for 40 years or so called Antonio's. He came up from Mexico back in the late 40's as a kid and ended up as the premier location chef for almost any major film shot in Mexico. John Wayne helped him get set up when he went on his own.

He can take a flank steak and make an asada that is out of this world or a birria and his nopales and mole' Oaxaca are world famous.

He's probably about 80 now but his kids run it and every now and then you'll see someone famous there because a - it's Antonio's and b- the food is incredible.

I can't remember the last time I had red sauce on the outside of a Mexican dish. One of the good things with so many immigrants is that they bring their food along.

Now you can get good Indian, Thai, Mexican, and even Peruvian and Vietnamese all over the country now except maybe in Kentucky. Kentucky is tough, culinarily speaking.
