Jack is Back

BTW, That couldn't have been Gus last night on his glasater rant. But if it was, leave here Gus and never come back. Totally uncalled for and unrespectful to a very good poster and JOM native. But if it was a sockpuppet I think I know who it may be and he has run out of feathers, obviously.

Happy, happy, joy, joy Ignatz

--With all due respect to our JOM members, Memorial Day or aka Rememberance Day is not for Veterans but those who made the ultimate sacrifice.--

Amen, JiB. I always refused to stand if our pastor would ask vets to stand on Memorial Day because I didn't want to dishonor the ones the day is really for.

Captain Hate

I thought a sentence containing "shrinking" and Special Ed would be in the Costanza mode.

I have a feeling it was Gus, given the style and the hour (and Anne is not that good an imitator). And if it was, I'm sure it was a misunderstanding and unawareness of who glasater is, and that he will apologize profusely if made aware of his mistake.

Jane

JIB,

I'm glad you are going to Ephasis. However be forewarned, when I was there over 2 decades ago, they were not terribly flattering to Mary.

anonamom

JiB, what neighborhood did you choose for your Roman apartment ?
VRBO?

hit and run

narciso:
there might be something wrong with Kansas after all

Hmmmmm.......that makes the wheels spin.

Of JOMers who have identified their location, I have The Map.

I would like to apologize for two things...1)that I'm basically the NSA of JOM; and 2)I may have missed some along the way.

The thing is, as you've probably guessed . . . I won't apologize, because that's just how I roll (peace be upon Jim Ryan).

But here's an interesting idea . . . here are the states in which there are no JOMers:

Arkansas
Delaware
Iowa
Kansas
Louisiana
Mississippi
New Mexico
North Dakota
Oregon
South Dakota
Vermont
West Virginia
Wyoming

That's the matter with Kansas . . . there are no JOMers there.

Of course, I soooooo could be missing someone, either from not paying attention or someone not yet identifying their location.

I'd be happy to have anyone in any of the states above tell me I'm a slacker.

But Let's Cut to the Chase: A prize to whomever gets closest to guessing how many JOMers are on The Map.

henry

Hit, 75. No reason for the narrative based swag selection except I need a beer so am too lazy to think about an estimating process.

flodigarry

Hit - try cherry pills. They help with gout (or at least in my case when I had my first bout a month or so ago).

My doctor did give me the raised eyebrow when I told him about trying the cherry pills though! ;-)

Centralcal on iPad

I agree with jimmyk and actually think Gus may have thought glasater was the troll who commented before her.

hit and run

If you're the only entry, henry, you are sure to win the prize!!!!!!!

You're on to my methods Hit!

Well all this time, all they had to do, was declare and 'Expecto Patrona' they would be a state

James D.

Hey, JiB, Frederick's blog is great!

Stephanie

JiB, I've been meaning to ask... do you need a housesitter while you are gone? :)

hit and run

Thanks, flodigarry.

However, I told mrs hit and run that a JOMer suggested I pop some cherries and she went straight for my ring finger and wrenched it something awful.

I really didn't even want to make that joke. That joke didn't care, it overpowered me.

Danube on iPad

I haven't tracked this closely, but I think glasater is absolutely wonderful, and Gus is too fine a guy to trash her. So I don't believe he did.

flodigarry

Hit - sounds like you got off light with that one

hit and run

It would be unfair to henry if I told everyone else whether his guess on the number of JOMers on The Map was high or low.

So I won't tell everyone else that his guess was high.

Because it might have been low.

Or henry might have nailed it.

And the fact is I may or may not be using what I said above as misdirection. Though that would be totally out of character for me, wouldn't it?

Wouldn't it?

henry

Hit, it wouldn't be fair to point out any JOMer with more diligence than beer might look for a past contest on most JOM residents in a state. That would require some math, so I stuck with beer.

pagar

I thought the number of JOMers was 66. Did that change?

Bori

I am going to guess the number is 69 for no other reason that I like that number.

glasater

I didn't get upset with Gus one bit and figured I should have been much clearer in what I wrote.

This horrid administration has hurt so many significant people in the past five years or actually longer beginning with the obvious one, Sarah Palin and on. And they don't care or seem to any conscience whatsoever.

glasater

I'm sure we're all aware that a news conference is underway in Santa Barbara regarding the mass killings there.

Threadkiller

Hit, that knuckle is infected. Get that ring off pronto!

hit and run

Pagar...

There are three categories.....

  • JOMers who have shared birthdays
  • JOMers who have shared their email addresses
  • JOMers who have shared their location

    The List (birthdays) contains not only JOMers, but kids, grandkids, parents, etc.

    The Email List is an opt-in list of people who have emailed me (or others).

    The Map contains only actual JOM commenters who have shared where they live

    As way of example...if TC has a kid in Louisiana and Alaska who don't comment on JOM, they wouldn't show up on The Map, but if TC has told us their birthdays, they would be on The List (birthdays).

    The Email List is sitting right around 70.

    The Map (the contest I have launched) does not equal The Email List.

  • Threadkiller

    Beasts, very nice!

    clarice

    hit, rub the finger with soap..loop some dental floss thru the ring and slowly twist the ring upwards. If that fails, get to the ER room.

    clarice

    I'm certain Gus' remark was not intentionally rude to glasater. He's a real gentleman. The ambiguity of these quick posts can lead to unnecessary friction, I'm inclined to ignore them when I'm involved unless they are clear and/or repeated insults.

    ALLEGED GUNMAN'S FAMILY RELEASES STATEMENT SUPPORTING GUN CONTROL

    Well this is teriffic news from the HollyWood parents. If only we had in place the same sort of quality gun control they have in Brussels we wouldn't have to worry about such atrocities.

    Now, back to watching the simulated death and gratuitous violence of The Hunger Games which of course has absolutely no responsibility in contributing to violence in our culture.

    Porchlight

    I agree, hit, you need to get your ring off before it has to be cut off.

    Jack is Back

    CH,

    Just back from dinner and saw your question on St. Feullien.

    The brewery is at St. Roeulx just north of Mons (SHAFE HQ). It is very hilly town full of cafes. From what I remembrer it is very hoppy, creamy and quite flavorful.

    Enjoy.

    Threadkiller

    Hit, if you are half the drinker I think you are, you need to have some concern for edema and what causes it.

    I think only one knuckle is being picked on because the ring became a non releasing tourniquet. That fluid cannot stay there.

    Of course you could have injured it doing this:

    daddy

    (Note that the AP accepts uncritically the 8 million figure.)

    The other number that is uncritically accepted and that drives me crazy is "11 Million illegal aliens". They've been pushing that unchanging number on us for the last 3 years at least of the Dream Act discussion, yet somehow that number never seems to change at all whereas anybody paying attention knows our borders are sieves and have been so for years, regardless what BS bogus numbers they feed us about deportations.

    Their son shoots people...so the rest of us shouldn't be able to own guns?

    IANAD* but we have to do a lot of self-medicating on the road, and my diagnosis is that you are probably allergic to some of the metal in that Wedding Ring you're wearing, so my advice is to take it off and leave if off, especially when hanging out at the Pool Hall:)

    Ayup, that's my concern too.

    FTSAH: there is no getting the ring off now.

    Maybe instead of piercing my nose, I should just stick my knuckle and see what drains out.

    Here, hold my beer and watch this.....

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

    I wonder what church the family attended as the boy grew up?

    "I will be a god compared to you. You will all be animals. You are animals, and I will slaughter you like animals. I hate all of you. Humanity is a disgusting, wretched, depraved species."

    He sounds like an environmentalist.
    What was his worldview?...that his problems & unhappiness were caused by some outside "group" that he hated? That sounds like the worldview of most leftists.
    ...& he can't even blame poverty!

    Hit, I picked 66 because someone was talking about Route 66 the other day.

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

    And why in the world should any of us take the advice & recommendations of the killer's family. They obviously didn't know what to do.

    How 'bout we get advice & recommendations from families whose children ARE NOT blaming & murdering other people.

    Beside packing, both me and Frederick, I have downloaded some jazz for my iPhone and the trip. Sonny Rollins, Gerry Mulligan, Modern Jazz Disciples with Paul Desmond, Herbie Mann, Rolnd Kirk, Nate Adderly, Charlie Mingus, T. Monk, and Jimmy Smith.

    Just for info, the AFN Radio Broadcast line-up for our troops in Europe has Ed Schultz getting an hour each weekday, starting 9 PM to 10 PM, and on Saturdays he gets 2 Hours, 10 AM to Noon. For comparison, Rush Limbaugh gets 1 hour each weekday, 6 PM to 7 PM, but Rush gets only 1 hour on Saturday (7 AM to 8 AM), not the 2 hours given to Schultz.

    I suppose I should be surprised to learn that lefty Ed Schultz, with absolutely miserable ratings, is given an extra hour of time to broadcast to our troops overseas than ratings king Limbaugh---but I'm not.

    What will be interesting is to see if Ed Schultz stays on AFN doing a minimal internet radio show. AFN obviously could care less about a broadcasters ratings, otherwise he wouldn't be getting an extra hour over Limbaugh, and since he gets paid by the Govt, (me and you) why the heck give that gravy train up if he doesn't have to.

    Does anybody in AFN know that Special Ed is always quick to blame the troops for anything that is in question? I assume the Brass has oversight over this and it's just AOK with them. And I'm not holding my breath for any of them to resign in protest over this VA situation which they were surely aware of.

    Serious question: Does anybody look out for the troops?

    Atty. Larry Klayman said some stuff you usually don't hear on Fox airwaves. Klayman said we have a pResident with a fraudulent birth certificate who was elected fraudulently and who isn't even a natural-born Citizen. He explained to Colmes the reason the founders put the "natural-born Citizen" requirement in the U.S. Constitution.

    Apparently not, listening to that windbag , for more than five minutes at a time,is a violation of the Geneva and Vienna convention, now he might well threaten to burn down the radio station, so one sees why they would be loath to fire,

    I asked before, all the negativitysurrounding
    'the Green Beret' film, since AMC is running it back to back, it was based on a book by the late Robin Moore, who had a real respect
    for the military, so I guess that was the real problem, that and it didn't paint the war as totally hopeless,

    Sickening story out of UCSB. The responses from the parent's attorney are delusional, but not surprising. What a little piece of shit son they raised. And now I'll shut up about that and pivot to something as profoundly stupid: Touré

    I can't imagine the level of ignorance needed to make this comment. I hope someone breaks his goofy face in at least three places. I'll bail them out of jail and pay for their criminal and civil defense, if they do. Serious offer.

    The press dutifully reports that Rodgers family blames lack of gun control for this latest mass slaying.

    Then we hear that 3 of the victims, found at Rodgers apartment, were stabbed to death.

    Lack of knife control to blame for that?

    Couldn't be that the kid was a wack job. And certainly not because of anything that the parents did or didn't do.

    Bet they didn't take him to church.


    jimmyk

    I read somewhere that the parents called the police when they saw the son's videos, but the police declared him just fine and dandy. Of course the police are not psychiatrists. Parents should have had him committed, if CA law allows that.

    Buckeye

    The fact that the Police interviewed the kid and declared him to be no threat is in my mind the strongest argument for the right to self protection.

    Here's thought exercise, watch the video of the punk who killed all those people. Replace the words sex, love, affection for money, housing, jobs, or education, and the words guys or brute for White. You know what you get the same argument that Coates and Toure are making about reparations for the sake of fairness and justice.

    Larry Klayman, five days ago:

    “'By the standards of yesteryear, Richard Nixon is not a crook, and whatever his shortcomings, Tricky Dick at least was not a traitor,' Klayman wrote Friday at World Net Daily. 'Hillary Clinton, following the lead of her corrupt predecessors and her own felonious history and continuing modus operandi (and Benghazi is just one recent example during her tenure as Obama’s secretary of state), would make Nixon look like a saint.'

    "Klayman sued the Bill Clinton presidential administration 18 times as founder of Judicial Watch, and he fears that the former president’s return to power.

    “'The possible election of the female partner of the Bonnie and Clyde duo of Bill and Hillary Clinton would usher in the death knell of the United States of America,' Klayman warned. 'Having fought the Clintons tooth and nail during the 1990s, and having pursued them for their commission of a host of crimes, ranging from Whitewater, to China-gate, to Travel-gate, and Monica Lewinsky-gate to name...blah blah blah..."

    We must help Larry get the word out! Here lies the path to victory!

We used to have a housesitting group that was all over the SE and would trade around housesitting to keep the dogs, handle the mail, cut the grass, and do the regular maintenance for each other. It lasted for about 5 years then several moved out west and it kinda fell apart. It's a great way to visit other places and keep your friends property spic n span and their dogs in a comfy environment.

    "According to a press release from their lawyer, Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, only giving WND one table they wanted three is 'virtually shuting WND out of the upcoming dinner....'
