Stephanie VIP shhhhh its fight club

But for that earthquake, Ms Pelosi wouldn't have worried her pretty little head about fracking in her twit stream when she did.

Never let an earthquake go to waste!

- things Rahm Emmanuel almost said

Ergo she linked the two issues and sought to capitalize on the crisis and denigrate a fossil fuel resource to promote green.

Gotta disagree with you on this one, TM.

Captain Hate

Is that the Pelosi daughter who did a documentary on GWB during his 2004 campaign and ended up liking him?

NK(withnewsoftware)

Speaking of ad hominem trolls TM, don't you have some clean up to do?

Threadkiller

Twitter is Morose Code to me.

narciso

No, Alexandra's the witty one, this is the other daughter

Captain Hate

Ahhh, thanks.

Btw doing my taxes I was wondering, has TM been audited?

narciso

the colloquoy between Reed and Frank, which is still smarter then most of their offerings,

For those wondering about the fracking/earthquake scenario, here's a complete paper. It ain't exactly news, aside from the subject paper's assertion of causation for a specific event.

Tom Maguire


Alexandra Pelosi did the Bush documentary.

Per Wikipedia:

"They have five children: Nancy Corinne, Christine, Jacqueline, Paul, and Alexandra..."

This Tweeter was SFPelosi, so who dat? Clicking her Twitter profile links takes me to Christine.

narciso

they still instist against MarkO's rather pointed conclusion, stipulated, before they gripe about other things.

Jack is Back

I refuse to comment on anything the daughter of the most ignorant woman in America has to say. On the the other hand:

Remember from the other thread I posted a photo of Mario Balotelli to make my point about anyone of any color can use an Euorpean passport without question? Well guess what:

One of the guys with the stolen Italian passport was a black guy who looked just like Mario.

Cheers

Jane

Oh Gawd, imagine being married to Nancy pelosi.

Imagine being her kid.

Imagine being in the same room as her.

It's all ugly beyond words.

Ignatz

--sfpelosi's ignorance of science, another reason women should stay in the kitchen.--

I deplore that rank sexism.
How does he know she can cook?

anonamom

Has anyone ever heard Nancy Pelosi say anything that made sense?
This isn't an attempt to be disdainful of her.
I've never heard her actually convey an idea or concept in the years I've been aware of her existence, and I have actually watched some one-on-one interviews of her.

narciso

No, but I still put her in the knave over fool category,

Jane

So at my Rotary meeting tonite I said: "This is the 5 year anniversary of Pelosi saying: We have to pass the bill to know what is in it."

One person at the table had never ever ever heard that before.

Captain Hate

Has anyone ever heard Nancy Pelosi say anything that made sense?

Her ruminations on Catholic doctrine are some of the dumbest things I've ever heard.

narciso

How do people not remember that, even though it was up there in the 'Billy Madison' categoty, of the stupidest things ever said,

Bori

When she said that the implementation of the law is not her responsibility, I thought that made perfect sense. That is how Progressives act when something does not work, it was not their fault for any unforeseen consequences.

jimmyk

On the topic of the thread: I refuse to get worked up or defensive or anguished about what some idiot(s) say on Twitter. We know nothing about these people--even whether they are even who they pretend to be. There is no entry fee or IQ test for Twitter or for much of the internet. We are fortunate to have a solid bunch of regulars here on JOM, but that doesn't prevent the occasional troll from trying to create a stir. There are no lessons to be drawn from that except that there are twisted people out there looking to attract attention.

GMax

One person at the table had never ever ever heard that before.

And to the great amazement of everyone, he manages to find his way home and then back to the next meeting.

narciso

they do weaponize every media platform, with their blipverts, had a Max Headroom flashback,

pagar

"His ad attacks:"

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/02/evil_koch_brothers_just_59th_on_top_political_donation_list.html

"the six biggest union donors in American politics gave 15 times more to mostly Democrats than the Evil Koch Bros."

If the union members were given an honest choice, most unions wouldn't have near as much to give to the Democrats.

One person at the table had never ever ever heard that before.

One admitted it, you mean.

I ran into a fellow gym rat (ratette) at the grocery the other day and while chatting she complained about how Obamacare is affecting her older sister, who is chronically ill and has had her insurance cancelled. Gym friend (who owns a business and fancies herself extremely intelligent) told me it made her regret her vote for Obama. When I asked what made a small business owner vote for Obama she said "Well, Mitt Romney would have made it impossible for women to get any birth control devices or pills. He's a Mormon, you know, and they don't believe in birth control. He would have made it illegal."

Jane, AB--makes you think we should have been in the swindling business.

Clarice,

The male Lackwitz Sisters make even better targets than the females. They can be tagged at any time during the sun's daily journey around the earth.

clarice

I think the Cal earthquake was caused by abandoned gluten. Forsaken fruits not labeled "organic". (Are there inorganic fruits?) Red meat tossed to one side by the denizens of West L.A. and kale fritters pitcheded in school garbage cans.

Niters

Prospector

Back in the mid 1980's when I was a geology undergrad, we studied research performed in Colorado where re-injection wells were correlated with multiple minor quakes along the Front Range. The conclusion at the time was that this was a good thing since it dissipated potential energy along faults that might otherwise catastrophically, fail. The recommendation at the time was to drill numerous injection wells in earthquake-prone areas with "wound-up" strike-slip faults to cause a number of small quakes rather than one big 100 year quake.

Gus

Clarice, it would be funny, if it wasn't way way way way out of control. The COMMIECRATS have the IDIOTCRATS convinced that MAN controls NATURE and ONLY IN BAD WAYS. So would it NOT FOLLOW that UN-NATURAL BIRD KILLING WINDMILLS AND WIND FARMS, CAUSE WEATHER ANOMALIES TOO?????????? Windmills cause TORNADOES!!!

Gus

Dams had to go, because they caused harm to spawing LIBTARD MINNOWS. But WINDMILLS that kill UNCOUNTED MIGRATORY FEDERALLY PROTECTED BIRDS are OK. Libs are mentally ill, and I think in true Hitler/Fascist style, those who are mentally ill should voluntarily be "euthanized". Isn't that how THEIR LOGIC works.

Ignatz

-- The conclusion at the time was that this was a good thing since it dissipated potential energy along faults that might otherwise catastrophically, fail.--

Jeez, I was going to suggest that but figured I'd sound like an idiot.
Guess I'm not as stupid as I look.

Gus

Ignatz, LIBTARDS do not see logic, science and truth as any hindrance to their IDEOLOGY. THEY STILL NEED TO GET PAID.

Ignatz

--I think the Cal earthquake was caused by abandoned gluten.--

This is a very active area of the San Andreas fault. We often stayed in Ferndale just south of Eureka where this quake was and they had a series of large quakes in 1992, the biggest being 7.2.
A quick search reveals another 7.2 in 1980 and a 6.5 in 2010.
Just another bump in the night up there. The fault is offshore and most are pretty deep.

Gus

The FAULT has ZERO relationship to FRACKING.
The EARTHS temperature HAS zero relationship to DINASAURS nor JEEPS.

Let your grandchildren decide.

Hmmm, sooner and smaller or later and larger.

Semper Why

Um, Tom?

Pelosi The Younger's tweet about sexism was at 11:57PM. Chelsea's tweet about staying in the kitchen was at 12:32AM, the next day.

So it would appear that the complaint about sexism preceded your example of sexism. Do you think this matters?

[Well, it certainly confirms that I am no expert on unraveling multiple Twitter threads. But given the tone of other comments addressed to her I would not be sure that my inability to find a clear example after a cursory search is proof that no example is out there.

Maybe some hideous examples were blocked, or deleted. Or maybe she is an utter moron. I don't see why "moron" should be the default conclusion. TM]

So at my Rotary meeting tonite I said: "This is the 5 year anniversary of Pelosi saying: We have to pass the bill to know what is in it."

One person at the table had never ever ever heard that before.

A tip for making it more memorable from one of those Facebook memes: "Isn't that the definition of a stool sample?"

Semper Why

"But given the tone of other comments addressed to her I would not be sure that my inability to find a clear example after a cursory search is proof that no example is out there."

Oh, I'm sure she received some nasty stuff... eventually. But it looks like the opening riff from Twitchy is correct: When confronted with a different opinion, she dove for the sexism defense. And then the sexism arrived.

I suppose in a liberal interpretation, you could claim that she was prescient. In a less charitable interpretation, you can say she brought sexism into play where there was none before.

[Or I could say that people, including the Twitchers, saw what they wanted to see. Just like people "knew" she was linking fracking to a specific earthquake becasue they "knew" she is an idiot because she is Pelosi's daughter.

I doubt anyone screaming "Oh, she played the sexist card" actually studied her Twitter stream to see if she had been insulted - why bother, when we "know" she is a libtard? --TM]

Rob Crawford
why bother, when we "know" she is a libtard?

Precisely.

Oh, you were being snide?

Tom Maguire

Snide it is. I think I am having an uncharacteristic "more flies with honey" moment (although why would anyone want any flies?).

As a practical matter, California won't push for fracking (nor will NY) without an angst-ridden, ridiculous debate. Screaming at the other side that they are morons probably won't help, especially when their moronicity is not clear-cut. I did see one ageist, arguably sexist comment about Pelosi personally remembering the 1906 quake; that must be mom they had in mind. And other comments may or may not have been deleted. Or she might be a paranoid feminist who sees sexism behind every bush. Uhh, or something....

Well - as noted, Pelosi is lame for claiming the most outrageous attacks are typical and the responsibility of the rest of us. Not that Michelle Malkin doesn't do that like, every day. Or used to; I feel like I don't see her writing as much now.

Outis

Bless you for this, Mr. Maguire.
