re: narciso @ 11:23

How about some "strict liability" standards for law enforcement (and other government officials)?

If something bad happens on your watch, you take the fall, end of story. Unfair? Maybe.

But as citizens, we are all subject to a whole range of laws that are strict liability and which carry not just civil but criminal penalties. You don't have to intend any wrongdoing, or even know that you're violating a law, or you can even be trying to comply - but with a lot of laws, none of that matters.

Why shouldn't the same rules apply to the FBI?

Jane

Wednesday was a pretty great day what with the Cummings news, and Lois Lerner up for arrest. I'm happy to relive it.

narciso

Btw, that IG report is so important, the Times doesn't bother with a link, they could have read for their chinese dinner menu.

James D.

So, in other news, I learned this morning that the gentleman who lives directly across the hall from me is a member of the House of Represntatives (I will not name him, because Zuckerberg/Schmidt/NSA).

He was very friendly, and I wished him a safe trip home to his district.

I then told my wife, and she went to his website. When she saw his photo, she informed me that the Distinguished Gentleman is the same person who argued with my mother-in-law because he couldn't grasp that the cash-card machine in the laundry room does not take $1 bills despite her repeated attempts to explain it to him.

I can't help but think that this explains a lot about the way Congress works...

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!!ELEVENTY!!!

Or, maybe not?

That was delicious, CH. Not in the least "mean spirited", merely factual. When the Hillary flack is reduced to "...mak[ing] the case she helped repair “America’s battered image” around the world", you know things have not gone well.

And Kristol's mischievous suggestion that the dim bulb Democrat Claire McCaskill is a more qualified female candidate was particularly well done, IMO.

Captain Hate

Jim, I loved how Kristol was grinning like a Cheshire cat after stirring the shit and watching those dumbasses stumbling over themselves.

On the drive home I caught part of an interview this morning on Local Talk with Meade Treadwell, one of our Repub's up here running for Senate against Dem Mark Begich.

The local host sez that the current polls have moved the Alaska Senate Election from "leans Democrat" to "Toss Up." Treadwell did a very good job of discussing the actions of the Russians up here in the Arctic and Polar regions and contrasting that with what the Obama Administration is failing to do up here. It strikes me that all our eyes are focused on what Russia is doing in Ukraine and Lativa, but paying zero attention to their strong moves up in the Arctic. Treadwell sez they are definitely going after control of the Arctic, particularly regarding shipping and resource exploitation, while we dither about Polar Bears.

Treadwell, at least in regards to what is going on geopolitically in the Arctic, comes across very well informed. He brought that into the discussion of "Why Begich needs to be replaced" quite effectively. Whether that will find any purchase with voters I can't say, but it was nice to hear a serious discussion of Russia's moves up here while our State Dept and Defense Dept dither.

I believe Treadwell is for the LOST Treaty but that did not come up in what I heard today.

It will also be interesting to see what the new ownership of the ADN produces regarding Electioneering. The Alaska Dispatch Blog is on the Left, and hates Palin ferociously, but it's reporters are much better at digging into stories than the cut and paste ADN, and even tho' they are Left they have often gone after Begich for things he has or has not done, whereas the ADN never runs anything but puff pieces on Begich.

My guess at the moment on ousting Begich waffles between pessimistic and "Too Close To Call", but Treadwell was encouraging. He handled himself well and was an adult.

centralcal

Thanks, Captain. Man, was he desperate to come up with something, anything, to credit Hillary with doing as SoS. Empty handed - lmao!

Captain Hate

JiB, I just watch whatever online clips are embedded elsewhere. Dear God, I waste enough time without streaming that garbage.

Jim Miller,

The faketivist event you were trying to remember might have been the kerfuffle a few years ago when the Mayor of Mt Vernon was going to give the key to the city to home town boy, Glenn Beck.

I remember that KOMO (?) sent a chopper up there to document the massive protest. The photog had the lie in the gutter and shoot a tight shot up to get all TWO protesters and their signs full frame and not disclose the vast emptiness around them.

Leslie: It's Thursday.

Yeah cc, I loved the "we'll have to wait for her book to come out". Nothing says incredibly awesome current event like having to read about it in an autobiographical account.

CH,

About the Nevada rancher and the turtles. One thing that is not being said is that the Fish and Wildlife Bureau has been relocating the turtles from the south and west Mojave because of the big solar plants have been killing them.

Not only is the plants, making the area much hotter, it is also killing the plants and utilizing the little water available to the turtles.

This area where the ranchers use to graze the cattle is isolated and on the east side of the Mojave, away from the Solar plants with the city of Las Vegas between them. But, the cattle would feed on the sparse grass in the area that is necessary for the turtles relocation.

So to protect the Solar Plants and the Dem cronies that own them from the backlash that the killing of the turtles is causing, they need to evict the rancher and his cattle. That way they can continue to relocate the turtles to that area.

Stephanie spring sprung baseballs back umm ummm umm

So it really is turtles all the down. Figures.

Captain Hate

If there's any justice in the great beyond, all those green grifters are going straight to Hell, hopefully soon.

Late to Stephanie's birthday party. Do we get the drinks before or after performing feats with a loaded wheelbarrow?

Enjoy your day, Stephanie.

matt

I have a hard time putting together killing turtles and solar plants. PV plants are basically massive carports. The tortoises of which I used to own one when a lad, would love the shade.

The only danger would be those evil green technicians cleaning and repairing the solar farms.

The bullshit gets deeper every day with these leftist turds.

Now we have Holder yelling racism about those mean rethuglicans because they are trying to hold him accountable, and hank Aaron, not the sharpest tool in the shed,saying the same.

Perhaps we should remind them that the Republicans voted decisively for the Civil Rights Act while Democrats such as KKK Grand Kleagle Robert Byrd voted against it.

James D.

The Russian Repoman makes another move as Obama and Kerry remain in deep discussion of the import of page 2 of Chess for Dummies.

Rick, do you really think Lurch and Zero are reading anything as advanced as "Chess for Dummies" ?

Stephanie spring sprung baseballs back umm ummm umm

To paraphrase a great line in the Blues Brothers:

We'll have both kinds - before and after.

The wheelbarrows definitely won't be the only things loaded that day.

Captain Hate

hank Aaron, not the sharpest tool in the shed,saying the same.

When I was first paying attention to baseball, Hank was the star for the Milwaukee Braves playing in one of the biggest whitebread places in the world where the baseball team was embraced by everybody in the community. If he'd have endured any ugliness there, the MFM would be all over that like flies on a dogpile. I know all about the dumbass hate mail he got while chasing the Babe's record, but you don't define a universe by random anecdotal idiots. Very disappointing.

MarkO

Among those in baseball, Aaron was always known as a difficult, dull, mean person.

Colbert is replacing the gap-toothed pervert. Jackass quotient: slightly elevated. Not that I watch ANY late night teevee.

Captain Hate

One unwatchable idiot replacing another.

Jack is Back

Full disclosure, my ex-associate was President of my ex-companies Renewable Energy Division that designed and built Ivanpah. Its a thermal solar tower plant not PV and is on BLM land. He and I worked together in London and his wife and Mrs. JiB are still very close friends as I am with them.

Me? I am not a big renewables fan since I am great believer in optimized dispatch systems - nuclear and fossil. But they had a long time client (subsidiary of SoCal Edison) and $1.2 billion - who can blame them.

matt

In actually think Fallon is not bad, but Colbert has an expired "use by" date. The clueless persona is old hat and will not stand him well with a larger audience.

Miller, on the other hand, would be a hoot.

Bori

Almost forgot,

Happy Birthday, Stephanie!

I am curious if Colbert will bring the Colbert Report schtick to the late night show. As hard as I try I can't remember him doing anything else memorable.

maryrose

Happy Birthday Stephanie!
Your recent vacation and plans for your day sound like fun and i would love to be there ,pushing a wheelbarrow and partaking of the brisket and beer. My husband's birthday is also today so we will be celebrating tonight. I will be attending a wedding next year at this time in Atlanta. Would love to meet some JOMers while there.
Holder is as sensitive to criticism as Baby Bammy. Both can dish it out but cannot take on the chin because they have none:holder} or they have their chin raised so high in arrogance that any insult misses it.
When Holder said to Goehlpert ,ver y disrespectfully, I might add"You don't want to go there BUDDY" he revealed all we need to know about his lack of respect for Congress and hisreal lack of character. This is a bad man. He needs to be cashierd yesterday.

Ferguson, has that wonderful sense of the absurd, he's more than a touch risque, covered by the bleeps,

I have CSpan on as background noise. Pat Toomey just introduced legislation requiring background checks on teachers, citing one school that help a molester/teacher find a new job, where he became the principal and raped and murdered a 12 year old kid. Then he cited the fact that since January teachers have molested 130 kids.

That was followed by Tom Harkin objecting to the legislation.

Amazing.

James D.

Jane, that's perfect.

Not only is the issue one that we're on the right side of (although I'm not sure that federal legislation for local school districts is where we want to have this fight), but it's turnabout for the dems.

But this is also where we need a big media microphone to amplify the message: Republicans propose a law to stop pedophiles from raping and killing children, and Democrats oppose it. We need the media infrastructure to keep that message going, so that not just Harkin, but every Dem, has to answer why they're in favor of protecting child molesters.

Let them be the ones who have to fumble for a complex answer as to why the proposed bill isn't a good idea, or might have unintended consequences, while our side stands by and asks, over and over again, why the Democrats are engaged in a War on Children.

Obama and Holder are experts at sweeping everything under the rug and pretending it doesn't exist. They also are always uninformed or clueless as often as seems to be necessary. Dysfunction will always find and associate with dysfunction.

So here is a question, speaking of Browsers. I use Chrome (out of the box, no options) on a PC. Works fine for me.

For the last two weeks and only at JOM, I can be reading merrily along with my cursor safely parked well away from any sidebar ads when out of the blue an audio advertisement starts blaring from my speakers and a little speaker symbol appears on the JOM tab. Usually I just quickly mute the speakers but it ticks me off.

Thoughts anyone?

It wouldn't shock me in the least if CBS made the decision thinking that Colbert is actually his on-air persona, and they think they will attract moderates and conservatives to the network.

OL: I used to use Chrome only for live streaming Bret Baier news (it airs 3 PM west coast time) while at work. Then, out of the blue, they started showing ads during the breaks at full volume (they were not Fox News ads, either. So, I stopped using Chrome for that purpose and returned to Firefox where it never happened, ever. It is Chrome (Google) doing it I think.

I agree that the US Senate should not be legislating school background checks (or anything else for local schools) That said, to renew my USSF Referee Badge, which includes youth games, my background check has to be kept up to date.

One of the rare things in life that can't be oversold. You can listen to all your buddies tell you how hilly the course is, how perfect the grass is, how tall the pines are, how loud the crowds are - doesn't matter. There's an energy and beauty there that beats it all. And it never gets old. It is magical.
