Haven't started catch-up yet, but here is Lib Ron Fournier admitting that he is naive and whining that he is getting tired of trying to defend ObamaCare.

Why I'm Getting Sick of Defending Obamacare

What I like are the comments. Can't speak for all 1,202 of them, but so far it's looking like 100% of the commenters are giving Fournier and his previous cheerleading of ObamaCare the thrashing they deserve.

Did TomM short the Lehman event? According to TomM, 2008 a 'down year'... too rich. Nice way to describe a 30+% across the board equities collapse.

narciso

Interesting in light of the stated narrative;

However, a Memorandum for The Record prepared by the Deputy Chief of Base specifically states that the Chief "authorized the move" and the Chief told the Committee: "We launched QRT [Quick Reaction Force] as soon as possible down to the State [Department] compound."

lyle

Don't worry, folks. I'm sure Fournier will soon remind us Obama himself had nothing to do with O-care. He's still perfect in all ways and so dreamy...

Hmmm..heartless capitalist AOL? Making up for poor management decisions by screwing their devoted right thinking drones?

Why this just doesn't fit the narrative, does it? I am depressed.

henry

Something tells me that by the end of this year the AOL faithful will wish he'd stuck to the switch. Using the match to retain talent in a declining company is a better business reason to switch than what he cited... AOL is not long for this world with that imbecile in charge.

Fournier: "I want the ACA to work because the GOP has not offered a serious alternative that can pass Congress."

Why doesn't he say "I want the Congress to pass the GOP alternative?"

Hey, according to Scientists the Shroud of Turin is real again!

Apparently it absorbed a bunch of Neutrons in some earthquake in 33 AD, which painted the image, plus became the reason why Carbon Dating testing is mistakenly dating the Shroud at only 728 years old.

Since I personally have been thru the 89 World Series Earthquake, a dozen 6.0 or greater Japanese earthquakes, and a hundred local tremblers here in Alaska, I'm guessing I must actually be 7 thousand or 8 thousand years old by now.

Meanhile....

"...according to a report cited by Free North Korea Radio, [Rodman] was practically forced out of the hermit kingdom for his full-blown drunk and disorderly behavior.

"'Rodman was drunk the whole week of his stay. And the night before he left for the U.S., he was drunk unconscious, and vomited everywhere he turned. He even urinated and emptied the bowels in the hallway,' said the source.'"

--The Korea Times

It's about saving the regime, a lift on the Embargo and other sanctions will allow them to continue its path for a little longer.

Lyle

Fournier did excuse Obama, just in a different way;

"Unfortunately, the president and his team are making their good intentions almost indefensible."

You see, his intentions are good, all is forgiven.

daddy

"'Rodman was drunk the whole week of his stay. And the night before he left for the U.S., he was drunk unconscious, and vomited everywhere he turned. He even urinated and emptied the bowels in the hallway,' said the source.'"

How 'bout we send him to Sochi so he can catch "Pink Eye" along with Bob Costas.

rich@gmu

read somewhere that he has also come under scrutiny for sanctions busting (Treasury and FBI)...no wonder he went into rehab hiding.

"You see, his intentions are good."

But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.

Of course. What was it that paved the road to hell?

But how is that from any other day of the week for him?

daddy

Anyone notice how there is no corruption whatever at the IRS because nobody was ever told from higher ups to do illegal stuff, it just happens that all those low and mid level bureaucrats decided to do all that rogue illegal stuff on their own. But conversely we can all trust the NSA implicitly because the guy up top has said to the low and mid level guys that they shouldn't do rogue illegal stuff on their own so naturally they'll all obey him perfectly.

in the light of the earlier discussion,

In the Norks killed Rodman I'd consider it a diplomatic show of good faith.

Sarah Palin turns 50 today. Happy Birthday Sarah!

Just in time for the Start of this years Iron Dog Snowmachine Race which starts on 14 Feb. Go Todd!

He's got a new partner this year but I forget who.

Hopefully they still have plenty of snow out in Big Lake in the Valley where it starts. We are snowless here in Anchorage due to you guys stealing our Polar Vortex, but it's cold as snot (currently 1) here in balmy Anchorage, and the local news sez we have a bunch of minus 50 to minus 60's out in the Interior where Todd and his buddy will be zipping along next week.

I know his dad, Ed (a starting tackle on Roger Staubach's Cotton Bowl team) and his godfather is a good friend here in town. I haven't seen the movie, and wasn't going to, but since Erik's mother and father both saw it I guess I will.

Nice article by AllahPundit about Boehner's Debt Ceiling incompetence... sheer political incompetence: http://hotair.com/archives/2014/02/11/boehner-might-not-have-the-votes-for-a-clean-debt-ceiling-hike-either/

Dot, it was an incredible movie. I'm not a movie goer - that was probably the first movie I've seen in 3 years, so what do I know, but I found it amazing.

I know that when they had the preview for the people involved, including the parents, the 3 mothers of the 3 guys who died on the mountain left the room, and came back when it was over.

That was a long time.

It is very worth seeing.

Old Lurker

Regarding Fournier, I wish Fox could watch how fast I can switch to the History Channel when their fair and balance puts another one of those jerks on my screen. For a time, my Juan Button was enough but Ron Fournier? Really?

Or I wish Fox cared what I thought. Do they really think the other side will ever love them?

Captain Hate

OL, the interview with Ailes was very interesting; he only cares about the network getting attention. I don't like a lot of his moves, like this, but he still slatters the other cable news networks.

rich@gmu

NK-

they were going to cave anyway and had announced they were going to do so. not much else for Boehner to do because he's got to get amnesty through.

Happy birthday DoT.

When someone asked Marcus Luttrell if he was American he replied "I'm a Texan"!

I'm with OL. Juan W. is a barely functioning retard. With apologies to retards. If you're going to have someone spew left wing talking points with minumum coherence at least make her easy on the eyes. Admittedly, there aren't many lefties on the distaff side worth looking at. That Sally Cohn guy isn't too bad, though.

All I know is if Texas secedes, Marcus Luttrell will be fighting on my side.

rich@gmu

very small. I'm too cynical, but nothing would surprise me at this point.

Since the congress has nothing else better to do than pester a football club maybe they should all go home and not come back.

At some point all these exceptions and changes to the O-care law by preezy will cause harm to individuals who will seek redress in the courts. Then all hell will break loose. This law is going ,going, gone...

narciso,

Wonder how we get away with our Choose Life plates here in Florida? Don't see any Chooose Choice or Planned Parenthood plates. Maybe we're next. Every one of our priests cars all have Choose Life plates as do a lot of our parishioners.

It would be a funny bit if someone sent Dennis Rodman to Soichi and asked him to compare the toilets of one commie hell hole to that of another.

rich@gmu

thanks. would like to see 535 new faces. this crop has done more than enough.

really they don't like the Redskins and want to make it a federal issue.

jimmyk

Wonder how we get away with our Choose Life plates here in Florida?

"Choose Life" is arguably not specifically abortion-related, so I'm not sure just having the plates would be a problem.
I suspect the issue was this in NC:

North Carolina lawmakers authorized the “Choose Life” plate in 2011, with a portion of the proceeds from sales of the plates earmarked for a nonprofit that supports crisis pregnancy centers. The law prohibited money from the plates from going to any group that promoted abortion.

Of course, there's never any problem with money going toward Planned Parenthood, whether from license plate sales or not.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

Since the congress has nothing else better to do than pester a football club maybe they should all go home and not come back.

Amen, rich!

Beasts of England

Good for Daniel Snyder! Hope he never gives in...

Danube on iPad

If it secedes, I don't think there'll be any fighting. The way to do it would be to leave all U.S. installations undisturbed, and do not challenge the feds' access to and use of them (contra Fort Sumter). Withdraw congressional delegations, and of course decline to pay U.S. taxes. Sure would be fun.

daddy

Fun bit of nothing comment to follow:

Dennis Miller is trying to do a joke that keeps bombing because the punch line is, "An idea so bad it made Icarus fidgety."

He said he tried it in Vegas where it bombed, and he blames his sidekick Christian for talking him into doing the line, and the back and forth banter between those 2 on the Show today over that line is much fun.

The Easy Bake Oven---an idea so bad it made Icarus fidgety.

Perhaps I'm punch drunk from being home for so long. Road trip tomorrow---whoopie!

Cortes was a sissy

Miller is as funny as...Adam Sandler.

His over-reliance on verbose minutiae and his rapidly contrived delivery is not a substitute for material.

He has a following of conservative pity, that is all.

narciso

That line, was a bit byzantine for me, and I thought I was connoiseur of his material.

Beasts of England

I'm not advocating secession, but, the earlier linked maps show how - from a GDP perspective - viable economies of a national scale can be carved out.

Fox just hired that horrible man married to Mary Matalin. Talk about hard on the eyes.

Kirsten Powers is my favorite liberal, and who knows how long she can stay a liberal. She's probably the best looking one too.

Shamoo makes me absolutely crazy. Like Juan she never ever shuts up.

Secession might be the natural consequence of diversity.

His over-reliance on verbose minutiae and his rapidly contrived delivery is not a substitute for material.

Translation: "I'm not smart enough to get any of Dennis Miller, so I'll dismiss him as a conservative chew toy. It feeds my superiority complex."

I guess I was too clever by half. My point was intended to be: there are many good-sized economic entities, viz. state's boundaries, and it wouldn't take an Etch-A-Sketch to draw new political maps, as necessary.

Sure. Just like the tens of millions of AAs that vote R to this day because of the party that emancipated them, right, Rand?

Still doing catch-up and just to the secession bit:

which is why some group smaller than 34 should give one year's notice of intent to secede due to breach of contract.

I wish we had a Lawyer up to verify, but off the top I think we probably have a better case for Secession than the other 56 States. My not perfect understanding is that we were promised in the State Hood Deal that we would have X amount of acreage given to the State by the Feds and that we would be allowed to develop our resources in Oil,Timber, Fishing, Mining, etc to pay for ourselves.

I believe that we have still not yet been given the entirety of our acreage, but we most definitely have been prevented from developing our resources. I suppose there are other bits and pieces of the deal that have been dishonored in a Statehood deal with the US Govt, but I'm too lazy to and too uninformed to say for sure.

How about you guys down South? Which of you guys think your state has a better reason than your neighbors to tell Uncle Sam to take a Hike?

Taranto has a swiftean exercise


Here's a thought experiment. Suppose Congress enacted the following statute: "Any drugstore that is part of a chain with 20 or more locations doing business under the same name (regardless of the type of ownership of the locations) shall offer cigarettes and other tobacco products available for sale to its customers." Call it the Marlboro Mandate.
