Howie Carr just mentioned it is Bunker Hill Day. My first thought was that the Founders must be looking down in total disgust at the current political class.President,Congress,every government functionary.

Marlene

OK,I'll say it. First!

Fubar

And it takes a lot to disgust slaveholders.

Before I wade into today's links to see what horrible new stuff has happened, here's a very interesting 36 second video of a compassionate Sea Lion, that has a surprising ending: Sea Lion plays with little girl, but watch what happens when she falls

Isn't soccer the sport where they blow on their uvulas vulvas vuvuzelas?

It's also Smoot/Hawley day, commemoration of the greatest fustercluck in economic history, till the carbon tax comes on line,

jimmyk

The other day there was some discussion about Dana Loesch, and I didn't think the picture posted was so flattering. This one is better (may need to right click if you're interested in the words):

commemoration of the greatest fustercluck in economic history

I think that does a serious disservice to March 23, 2010.

Stephanie

Ha, beasts! I still have the vuvuzela app on my iphone. The hubs mentioned that it was nice to hear a 'quieter' WC, so I opened the app and blew him.

Stephanie

Oh holy....

OMG.

Nothing that we don't know around these parts:

Which is why, in the end, Barry thinks he’s got game. All his life he’s been told he has. His skills, such as they are, are what’s prized in the gum-flapping community. His providential arrival on the scene as the first African-American with no “Negro dialect” (in Senate majority leader Harry Reid’s famous phrase), set the chattering classes swooning; his Columbia and Harvard pedigree assured them he was One of Us. The good will of the American people put him in the White House, as if a propitiatory offering for the sins of the past. The problem is, in the real world, he has no game. He can’t play at this level. Everything he throws up is a brick

Too funny, Stephanie!

point taken, but I was thinking the global impact

NK(withnewsoftware)

Lyle--walsh is wrongly assuming Obummer wants a strong and properous USA. Obummer doesn't; he want a weak, poor and most importantly socialist America run by government bureaucrats. That said; thank God Obummer is an incompetent buffoon without game. If he were an evil genius, we'd be in even worse shape.

Ahh, the comments that will make the JOM Hall of Fame . . .

James D.

Five new threads today - is that a record?

daddy

I am confused.

Eli Lake puts out a new post titled Why Delta Force Waited So Long to Grab a Benghazi Ringleader

If anyone can read his story and figure out why they waited so long I would be interested in knowing the answer because that is the one question that he does not answer in his story.

NK(withnewsoftware)

Stephanie@4:04-- that is better than any 'typo' I ever posted at JOM.

PS: Freud says there are no mistakes ;-)

Laura White

I think it will still be a long time before our current POTUS figures out how woefully he lacks manhood, wisdom, or even game--all the more absurdly because his own wife has been sneering at all three of these lacks in public since before he was elected. Remember her body language and facial expression when he couldn't figure out how to get an open umbrella through an arch?

NK(withnewsoftware)

daddy-- there was no reason to grab a Benghazi 'terrorist' because there were no terrorists at Benghazi, just overzealous film critics. Didn't you listen to HildaBeast, Obummer and Susan Rice at the time?

Buckeye

1st Hit and Run, now Stephanie.

definelty was the iPad autocorrect selection. I don't think it is a word. Where did it come from?

“Since the deadly attacks on our facilities in Benghazi, I have made it a priority to find and bring to justice those responsible for the deaths of four brave Americans,” Obama said in a statement released by the White House. “I recently authorized an operation in Libya to detain an individual charged for his role in these attacks, Ahmed Abu Khatallah. The fact that he is now in U.S. custody is a testament to the painstaking efforts of our military, law enforcement, and intelligence personnel.”

Anyone think this is some coincidence that they just now grabbed this jihadi? Even the admin's smokescreens are incompetent. I hope Gowdy is getting closer to the WH cover up lie.

Danube on iPad

Typical Fubar: displaying his moral superiority to people who lived over two centuries ago by applying today's moral standards to them. And you had to own property to vote! And women couldn't vote at all! There was no same-sex marriage! How shamefully unenlightened those men were.

"Hillary is "rusty," is out.

The new meme is Hillary is in "Spring Training"

Or if you don't like Spring Training, you can say Hillary is in "a Learning Period".

I prefer "rusty", since I don't think anything talking about "Hillary and her
periods", is a winner.

Stephanie

They are going to have to expand that World Cup abbreviated show that shows the highlights from the day's action on ESPN tonight. Just about the whole Brazil v Mex game is insane.

On Planet Barry I guess capturing or shooting a few individuals after the fact while the entire ME goes up in a jihadist bonfire is a strategy.

Steph, when I suggested you check out the activity of the coeds at the high school down the street, I did not mean that seriously, honest.

Old Lurker

Dunno, Lyle, I just read it for the stories.

MarkO

The letters were, I'm told, in Penthouse.

I loved the editorials about the First Amendment in both magazines.

Stephanie

LOL, OL.

Maybe I should just sell the house and move to The Villages? ;)

lyle

Penthouse Forum, to be precise.

Yes, I admit it.

Old Lurker

Now that was funny, Steph. But I think that service is already covered at The Villages from what I read. High School, check. Retirement Home, check.

I think I should stop now.

lyle

And I never read ONE that went like this:

Ha, beasts! I still have the vuvuzela app on my iphone. The hubs mentioned that it was nice to hear a 'quieter' WC, so I opened the app and blew him.

I'm admit also that trying to imagine decyphering most of this from the viewpoint of a college male circa 1980 is, um... interesting.

Dear Penthouse,

You won't believe what happened when our real estate agent came by to talk about listing our home.

I don't think I need a stress test after reading Steph's comment; nor, obviously, does her hubs. And I'm on record as saying my regard for her couldn't be higher.

Mrs H has started yammering about there being a large number of earthquakes in Oklahoma because of fracking.

Captain,

Up here we happen to have 5 of our 47 volcano's currently going off, and there are 4 going off on the Russian side. That is an enormous amount of activity and it is all at least 4000 miles from the nearest fracking anywhere.

We also have had a bunch of mini-earthquakes going on near a village up north of Nome: Strange 'swarm' of earthquakes near Noatak confounds scientists, frightens residents.

Noatak is also many thousands of miles from the nearest fracking activities on the planet.

The linked story does say this: Earthquake swarms are more common in parts of the Lower 48 such as California, according to Julia Dutton, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo. USGS researchers are also seeing “a huge amount” of earthquakes in Oklahoma thought to be associated with fracking techniques used in oil and gas production, Dutton said.

My assumption, seeing that we've got huge tectonic activity going on up here locally, and so far from any fracking, is that it is simply the earth going through it's normal processes of releasing energy, and has squat to do with fracking.

Also worth noting that within the last week a story has come out telling us that the story hyped 2 weeks ago about some glacier in Antarctica melting due to AGW, actually sits on top of a geological hot spot: Uh oh: Study says ‘collapsing’ Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica melting from geothermal heat, not ‘climate change’ effects

That fits in with Darwin's friend Hooker being on board the Erebus in Antarctica in I believe 1845 and watching a volcano exploding on the geologically active frozen Continent.

I doubt you'll be able to convince Mrs Hate with these reports, but at least you can reply that the planet at this time is rocking and rolling big time, regardless of anybody fracking, or sacrificing virgins into Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii.

According to the USGS, there are 500,000 detectable earthquakes in the world each year. 100,000 of those can be felt, and 100 of them cause damage.

Court: $1.8M waterfront home mistakenly built on Rhode Island parkland must be removed

I wonder if the house were to be suddenly inhabited by illegals, if that would be enough to stop the Court's destruction mandate?

I am positive it would immediately result in a "Stay the Destruction" order, while all the nuances began their slow parade thru our Justice System, and my guess is if the illegals had 1 year old's in the house today, those kids would be graduating from Harvard at public expense, long before the house was actually torn down.

Let's stick Obama's illegal drunken driving Uncle in the digs as an experiment, and see how soon we get him out.

Dear Penthouse,

My friend, Darwin, had the greatest time on his cruise...

Darwin's Beagle Diary: 21 February, 1835 (Coast of Chili)

We moved our Anchorage to none nearer the mouth of the harbor---during the last week there has been an unusual degree of gaiety on board.--The intendente paid us a visit one day & brought a whole boat full of ladies: bad weather compelled them to stay all night, a sore plague both to us & them.--They in return gave a ball, which was attended by nearly all on board. Those who went returned exceedingly well pleased with the people of Valdivia. The Signoritas are pronounced very charming; and what is still more surprising they have not forgotten how to blush, an art which is at present quite unknown in Chiloe.

And don't even get me started on Charlies comments about the Signorita's of Brazil!

And as we all recall, Huxley fell in love with a babe in convict Australia during his 1846 cruise on the Rattlesnake, and eventually had her shipped to England so he could marry her and pump out all those "Brave New World" grandkids.

Dear Penthouse,

My English teacher asked me to go to her house last night to work on a project about Tess of the d'Urbervilles.

Now back to what Top Men are telling the rubes:

“A straight-up tea-party ticket cannot win,” adds one of the GOP’s most prominent fundraisers. “Too many Republicans and independents will just flat-out not vote for a ticket with two tea-party guys. It will not happen.”

Captain Hate

I understand balancing a ticket. Ryan was supposed to be a sop for all us conservatives until it turned out his actions didn't dovetail with his words so well. Conservatives still came out for Romney though. They held their noses and voted for that old guy with Palin in 2008. It's the Rockefeller Repubs who bail on the party.

Aw what the hell...

From: Charlies Darwin (June 17th 1853)
To: Penthouse Magazine

Dear Sirs,

Prior to my recent discovery, it was thought that all barnacles were hermaphrodites. This is not the case,

I dissected a species of barnacle called (Ibla cumingii) and was startled to find that they were all female. This was against the books! What is more, the females were covered by little black specks.I had seen these before and assumed they were parasites, but decided to take a closer look. Amazingly they turned out to be the Ibla males! These ‘complimental males’ have been reduced to mere tubes filled with sperm living parasitically on the females. I checked a related species (Ibla quadrivalus), some of its females were hermaphrodites but they still had these little males attached. This appears to me to be a sort of progression, from a hermaphrodite ancestor the sexes may have become specialised in Ibla; I. cumingii and I. quadrivalus captured this process at different stages.

This cause me to re-examine Mr. Anthrobalanus, and what a surpass; it possesses the biggest penis of any creature:

‘The probosciformed penis is wonderfully developed… when fully extended it must equal between eight and nine times the entire length of the animal!
I dare say Mrs Darwin would certainly not enjoy this adaptation in humans!

maryrose, the number of times I've gone in for layups in the last year you can count on one hand; I generally gave up going hard to the rack after a bad concussion. Although I'll still do it when they least expect it. I'm mostly a catch and shoot guy from midrange to three pointers. Love draining 'em from the corner.

My physical therapy Hatette already called with some professional advice.

My book group read Tess and I loved Hardy's writing; not exactly up with life but a very vivid portrayal of everything. I've submitted a list to the group of books I demanded wanted to read and Jude the Obscure was on it. Tess may have been the most pleasant surprise of all the selections by people other than me; Vanity Fair was probably the only one that comes close.

Hillary is on with Brett, talking Ben Ghazi.

I have read them all and I do like "Tess" and "Jude the Obscure". Hardy is such a wonderful writer.

I also recommend any book by Dickens and Theodore Dreiser's "An American Tragedy" and 'Sister Carrie".

Captain Hate

I've only read Tess, narc, and thought it was very very good.

My questions for Rodham:

1. Have you sent a complimentary copy of the book to Juanita Broaddrick?

2. Have you forgiven Huma for comparing her dysfunctional marriage to yours?

3. How many armed chaperones did you have when Chelsea had a sleepover?

4. Did Chelsea date any offspring of non felons?

5. Can you personally drain a keg at one sitting?

maryrose

I love Greta! Go get her! Hil will rue the day she decided to brave a Fox interview.

Extraneus

So, because the IRS, with a budget of almost $12B, didn't want to spring for weekly, monthly, or yearly backups - any one of which would be the same size as the 182 or so rolling daily backups they did supposedly keep - they devised a rule that required employees to personally print out and store emails that were "federal records," defined as any e-mail “created or received in the transaction of agency business.”

Makes sense, right?

Thanks Penthouse for your excellent suggestion. As you can see, I am now able to have Editorials posted at the New York Times, and I didn't even have to cut of my penis. All I had to do was change my name and say that I wanted to cut off my penis. It worked like a charm.

So thanks a lot, and if you could please send me some of Lady Gaga's used silk thong underpanties, preferably autographed, I think they'll offer me a positions as their 40th Editor.

Sincerely Brad Chelsea!

Gee, I feel very deeply and personally about those Ben Ghazi losses too, but I wasn't SoS. Let's see if Brett has the cajones to ask why she didn't give them the security support they wanted.

maryrose

Hil will be buried by Benghazi. I am sure today's arrest was timed to give her some breathing room after she muffed it up with Sawyer. No such luck. Message to Hillary-sometimes lies don't work. Ditto to the IRS.

Jim Miller

daddy - Often headlines are written by editors, not reporters. I suspect that's what happened on that Eli Lake article.

maryrose, be wary of using the phrase "muffed it up" in a sentence with Rodham and another woman.
