TM:
I think plenty of Russians and Ukrainians have had that worry for decades. But it isn't lists kept by Barry and Johnny that have them worried.

The lists kept by Barry have you and me on them.

henry

Mets Jets tickets.

Tom Maguire

"Jets tickets"

Now you're talking the nuclear option. And I thought I had a cold heart...

Bori

Henry,

Hockey is big in Russia and if they are staying on the Island, Islander tickets.

I wonder who the oligarchs will kill as acknowledgement of the threat? Soros operatives in Ukraine? Progressive Fascists here? Their usual custom is to mail pieces of the victims to the party making the threat. The WH mail room should expect unpleasant surprise packages.

henry

Or Cosmos v Red Bull... insult the EPL owners with hack ball.

Bori

For those on the West Coast, Laker tickets.

I'm cross-posting this because it looks like I killed the last thread:

This is very off- topic, but my husband and I are thinking about an Aegean cruise from Athens to Istanbul, with stops at Nafplion, Mykonos, Rhodes, Ephesus and Volos. Do any of you travelers have an opinion, or suggestions for some reading on the area. BTW, it was OL's link to the vista outside of his Istanbul hotel that really whetted my

I liked this bit:

European Union leaders also laid out a three-stage process that could end in economic sanctions . . .
Makes the League of Nations look positively resolute by comparison.

Chelsea. Top of the table. Courtesy of my favorites oligarch.

narciso

Well not really for the reasons, I laid out before, plus Volodya has already suggested
seizing US and EU assets.

JiB

MaryD,

Bon voyage. A great itinerary. Don't read about ahead of time but expierence it without reservation or help. Enjoy and have fun.

JiB

Narciso,

He won't seize our Russian assets because we have 100x more Russian assets invested here. In fact, without O'Bama's bumbling help. Vlad is officially on life support.

Florida! On our flight from PHL to RSW,there was a man two rows in front of us who could have been Harry Reid's twin brother. I said to hubby,if he were the real Harry,someone would have punched him in the face by now.:)

OT, JiB, you're familiar with the Daytona area, I take it?

Where has Extraneus been?

Lutes and Chausses!!

about an Aegean cruise from Athens to Istanbul, with stops at Nafplion, Mykonos, Rhodes, Ephesus and Volos. Do any of you travelers have an opinion, or suggestions for some reading on the area.

Ephasus will blow your mind. Santorini should be on that list - I think it is my favorite place ever. Mykonos is eh, Rhodes, I loved (altho I may be mixing it up with Crete). Didn't got to Volos or Nafplion. We did 6 days on land and 6 at sea. It was wonderful - my first trip to Europe and we left on the day of the Oklahoma bombing. Oh and some guy dies on the plane.

anonamom

Home--the entire way in the rain, once we got to Tampa.
Beat the ice though--33 degrees on the car thermometer as we pulled in the drive.

Marlene, where will you be hanging?
We had a nice day on Sanibel and Captiva Monday kayaking, drinking at Mucky Duck with lunch, and walking the (completely created with taxpayers' money after Hurricane Charlie) Captiva beach. Had vacationed there for ten years or so when the kids were little and the in laws had their condo.

Jane

I gotta say, I like Christie's style. He's not my guy, but I could live with him if I had to. I like that he has balls.

MaryD

"Oh, and some guy dies on the plane."

Jane I can't thank you enough for the travelogue, but is it possible that you are the inspiration for Shaw on POI? :-)

Jane

is it possible that you are the inspiration for Shaw on POI? :

I have no idea what that means, and I guess I am missing something cool.

MaryD

BTW, Shaw is my favorite character.

Jane

But let me tell you the plane thing. I took the trip with my mother and my 2 nieces. My nieces were 13 and 15. Some guy has a heart attack while we are still at the gate and because they cannot get him off the plane thru first class they have to drag him, on the top of the seats, down to the back of the plane.

My mother says to my nieces (on their very first flight) "this happens all the time".

Beasts of England

What a great remark by your mother, Jane!

glasater

"this happens all the time"

Heh, Jane.

Janet-

I miss Extraneus also!

MaryD

Jane, your mother's comment is totally
Shaw. No problem if you don't get the reference. It doesn't matter. You are totally ok for not watching POI

centralcal

I agree about missing Extraneus - maybe he is traveling?

I take it your nieces were turned off to flying thereafter, Jane?

Shaw is considered a somewhat aloof CIA operative,

evening all. have i missed much?

is hit really traveling to Georgia? will ATL ever be the same?

clarice

I second Jane's comments..I have been to the Greek Islands and Turkey several times and enjoyed every trip. Crete is also worth seeing if possible.

LOL about the dead man story.

Narciso, the new Epstein book on Angleton doesn't have much that is new.

Jane on Ipad

My nieces were/ are just fine. It was an incredible trip made better by the fact that I had no interest in going, so I had no clue what I was in for.

"Who writes this material?"

I put the link on the last thread but I guess none of our non-kindergartners worked out the solution. Thought sure that rse would know the
answer.

My great grandson will be starting kindergarten this year and I can't imagine he could figure this out on his own. Even thro he seems to be very very smart.

JiB

Narciso,

Daytona is my neighborhood. Why ask?

narciso

I thought you lived farther north, we're looking into moving into that area,

Epstein, was the first and most significant of the debunkers of the Angleton black legend, but Codevilla, and subsequently Bagley's own memoir, fleshed out the tale,

30 minutes north. Great area, if you like racing and bikes plus loony women from South Carolina

You will appreciate little things and then want to ask the tour guide a question that will prompt tales that he or she may not normally tell about the ruins.

So Issa apologizes to Cummings, it's like the words of Katherine Engelbrecht don't mean a thing,

Consolidation continues:

Safeway has agreed to be acquired by an investment group led by Cerberus Capital Management, the owner several supermarket chains.

The deal, announced late Thursday, will bring together Safeway and Albertsons, one of the five chains that Cerberus bought from Supervalu Inc. last year.

Frau Schminke

Jane - an answer to your question from the last thread:

Yes,it was a young arrogant snot who when pressed finally revealed that he was actually from Palm Springs, CA and was (merely) a flak-catcher for Hatch. Caro was overly polite with the man, and it was Jean who went back and laid into him for his rude treatment of a Utah constituent. I doubt he knew much about Utah or was even a registered Republican.

In an alternate universe, we jumped the counter, pummeled him, and left him in his Fruit of the Loom undies with a Melvin. Sigh...

Beasts of England

Apologized to Cummings? Screw that. Grrrrrr.

For those who read the information about the new medical coding, I was out with my sister the nurse tonight and she did NOT know about it. (She doesn't have anything to do with it except knowing current coding is a pain because she is a surgical nurse).

She was even more irate about ACA than already, which is a lot. She says people have NO idea what is going to come down on them.

Stephanie VIP shhhhh its fight club

Never did see hit for bunko. :)

Never did play bunko as only a few ladies showed due to the weather, so we drank martinis and gossiped. Actually, I mentioned (to a couple of ladies that like to gamble) the app "my Vegas slots" (free app that you play slots on and win actual comps for bellagio,aria,the grand for your next trip to Vegas) and they downloaded it and I spent the rest of the night explaining the app and listening to them say I leveled up!!! I hit a big win!!! Etc.

Many martinis were needed for that. Ugh.

BTW, I got Ronald Reagan.

Nope I didn't see any bunko going on. :)

Bori

Ciso,

True about the theatrics, but Whitewater had a special prosecutor, now it would be up to Holder's Justice Dept. to prosecute.

Even if a prosecution is started, not that hard to screw it up and make Lerner et al. look like victims.

narciso, I loved Starr. When will your book "Travesmockashams" be released?

Bori

It does help when the those that have the microphone are always singing for the other side.

I have often wondered if the results would have been different if it had been today with all the alternate media sources.

Frau Schminke

WTH? IMO Issa does not owe Cummings an apology for Cumming's fracking freak-out theater. It was obviously planned to make Issa look raaaaaaaacist. The Dems immediately came out blasting to prove the point.

It would be longer then WAr and Piece, Frau,
the American Spectator, which I freely admit took some hairpin turns, but it was quite a bit more clear, then the Kultursmog press,

Frau,

It's just small ball. It's going to drive us nuts as long as BOzo continues to slide among the LIVs. No one wants to risk slowing the momentum over plantation dwellers whining about disrespect.

I'm sure Issa issued the apology with all the veiled contempt that lying sack of crap has earned.

During the Trash-Starr period, I used to think about those I'd want to be with in a life boat. Starr was one of them.

Has Harry Reid apologized for calling Americans liars? & the Kochs un-American?
Has Obama apologized for lying about Obamacare?
Have Reps. Lewis, Clyburn, Cleaver, & Carson apologized for lying about & slandering Americans at the Kill the Bill rally?
How bout Reid slandering Romney on the Senate floor?

Bori

So much for the praise having those ex-military there after the bombing to help the victims of the attack. I guess no good deed really, does not go unpunished.

Captain Hate

Has Jon Huntsman, who hopefully Kristol has shamed ScarbRINO from having on his morning insanity show, apologized to Romney for telling Reid lies about his taxes?

-- I guess no good deed really, does not go unpunished.--

I'm confused.
Does it or doesn't it?

Does, does.

Miss Marple

http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/newsdesk/2014/03/who-will-protect-the-crimean-tatars.html

The Tatars don't like Putin. Apparently marks are appearing on the gates and doors of their homes in Crimea.

They are afraid this is like the times of Stalin.

Or, said suspicious Miss Marple, some Muslim activists are doing this to get them upset and perhaps ask for help from (ta-da) Turkey.

Ignatz

Check out Jane curling on the October page. :)

MarkO

Cummings pitched a fit so that would be the story no matter what Issa did.

Centralcal on iPad

Cummings just posted on Twitter that Issa telephoned him and apologized, which Cummings accepted.

Oh gawd! I am trying to view this in the manner Rick Ballard suggests, but not succeeding. Off to bed. Goodnight all.

I don't this is in doubt, Just as Russia returns to it's Czarist Roots, Turkey harkesn back to the Caliphate;

Bori

Does anyone know anything about this?

http://healthcarecompact.org/

Miss Marple

MarkO i think the whole thing was planned so as to make Lerner look like she was being bullied.

I will repeat what I said the other day:

1. Attorney tells Issa that she will testify.(This was confirmed by Trey Gowdy on Greta's show when she asked why they thought Lerner would testify.)

2. Issa goes on Fox and announces this.

3. Lerner shows up and instead of testifying pleads the Fifth, after having sent out word that she was scared because her life had been threatened. The insinuation was that it was Tea Party people, of course. And her attorney says her refusal to testify was on his advice, because he didn't like the tone of Issa and Gowdy on TV interviews that weekend.

4. Lerner appears HOLDING HER ATTORNEY'S HAND through the hole thing, which got caught on camera several times, giving the illusion that this ruthless democrat operative is a frail victim of bullying.

5. When Issa closed the meeting down, Cummings hadn't yet gotten the opportunity to attack those who were supposedly threatening Lerner and make a big pitch for how mean Issa is, so he got even madder because it was supposed to be his shining moment.


Not only would I charge Lerner with contempt, I would throw in the attorney as well and make a complaint to whatever bar he belongs to.

Miss Marple

narciso, I see the Tatars got an introductory mention as being possible big losers (aka victims) in that article.

This is what happens when the POTUS doesn't know history.

Miss Marple

Well, I have fumed enough.

Good night, all!

Bori

Miss Marple,

Your analysis feels about right. Here's the thing, if Lerner is charged with contempt it will be up to Holder's JD to prosecute.

I am of the mind, thinking like you do, that if she is charged the Justice Department will take over and essentially end the probe.
