Stupid progs throwing away money that might otherwise help elect viable candidates! Love it. Per Jim Geraghty :


Looks like Republican Greg Abbott will have to get by with a mere $35.59 million cash on hand for the fundraising period ending on June 30th. Of course, that’s the highest cash on hand amount ever reported by a Texas candidate. And the gubernatorial candidates who preceded Abbott — Rick Perry and George W. Bush — were no slouches in the fundraising department.

In June, media reports in Texas stated Davis had raised “at least $16 million.”

Tornado warning in Middlesex County,Mass. Be careful.

GMax

For those keeping score at home, that would be over 2 to 1 for Abbot over Abortion Barbie. I can guarantee all her money is from coastal progs who went gaga over her red shoes or something, despite her now not even professing to know how to spell Abortion.

Porchlight

And my prog friends are whining that she can't win because she doesn't have enough money, Gmax.

No folks, she doesn't have any money because she can't win. Bill White outraised her handily.

Porchlight

....and White lost handily to Perry in 2010. And he was arguably the best Gov candidate Dems have fielded since I've lived in Texas.

TX Dems didn't even have a candidate lined up until Pink Sneakers decided to run last fall. That should tell you what they thought of their chances of beating Abbott.

Good grief! Who or what is writing internet connection "error" messages these days? Tried to connect with Powerline and got the following:

Obama's remarks at the end of Ramadan dinner. a bit - "...And for all of us, whatever our faiths, Ramadan is a reminder of just how much we share. The values of peace and charity, the importance of family and community — these are universal values. The command to love one another, to uphold justice, and to care for the least among us — these are common threads in our faith traditions."

Could someone...anyone in our political world or any MFMer please, Please, PLEASE read the Q'u''ra'n? Do any of them know what is actually WRITTEN in it?

Do you suppose the commies have invaded Marvel Comics?

Bori

The secret is out, here are the deadliest guns in America, per the Horde and Rolling Stone;

Rolling Stone has compiled a definitive record of “The 5 Most Dangerous Guns in America.” They are, and I’m not kidding here:
Pistols

Revolvers

Rifles

Shotguns

Derringers

lyle

Do you suppose the commies have invaded Marvel Comics?

Yes.

Porchlight

Has sort of a "days ending in y" vibe about it, doesn't it, Bori?

Extraneus

Good thing I have a least one of each.

lyle

Bori,

Do you suppose the jeenyus who compiled that list knows that revolvers and Derringers are...pistols?

Bori

Well, Top 5 sounds better and more omminous than Top 3, otherwise I have no idea.

Back on topic, at least they did not transgender Thor or turn him into a Gay characther.

House GOP votes to gut IRS budget

Late Tuesday night, the House of Representatives voted to cut 13 percent from the Internal Revenue Service’s budget. Two proposals submitted by Republican legislators in the House were quickly passed by voice vote, resulting in a cut of $1.14 billion from the tax collection agency’s enforcement budget.
Wouldn't "late Tuesday night" be later tonight? I guess it's late for Congress...

Steph-when we were in NYC last month in a bookstore the actor who plays Coulson came in to browse. Red was so excited but too cool to bother him. She did look him up and discovered he had just finished an interview across the street.

Also saw Diana Van Furstenburg who truly has to have some record for an ability to age gracefully. I guess BG's had started carrying her dresses.

I am looking at Vargas' undocumented immigrant headline. I guess the new criteria is if anyone wants to come we must let them and support them for life. Funny since no one has an obligation to support us. I see the state universities are fighting the idea that vets should get in-state tuition. Not a one would say that about illegals.

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

a bit more from the Ramadan dinner speech (near the end)-

"Here at home, even as we’re vigilant in ensuring our security, we have to continue to remain true to our highest ideals. In the United States of America, there is no place for false divisions between races and religions. We are all Americans, equal in rights and dignity, and no one should ever be targeted or disparaged because of their faith. ..."

The Dems are the kings of divisions because of race & religion!
and Americans aren't equal in rights anymore. Affirmative Action. La Raza,...
Obama is exactly WRONG.

GCHQ's dark arts: Leaked documents reveal online manipulation, Facebook, YouTube snooping

Summary: A fresh set of documents leaked by Edward Snowden show how the UK intelligence agency can manipulate online polls and debates, spread messages, snoop on YouTube and track Facebook users.

From the link...

A number of interesting tools and their short descriptions are below:

ASTRAL PROJECTION: Remote GSM secure covert Internet proxy using TOR hidden service
POISON ARROW: Safe malware download capability
AIRWOLF: YouTube profile, comment and video collection
BIRDSTRIKE: Twitter monitoring and profile collection
GLASSBACK: Technique of getting a target's IP address by pretending to be a spammer and ringing them. Target does not need to answer.
MINIATURE HERO: Active skype capability. Provision of realtime call records (SkypeOut and SkypetoSkype) and bidirectional instant messaging. Also contact lists.
PHOTON TORPEDO: A technique to actively grab the IP address of MSN messenger user
SPRING-BISHOP: Finding private photos of targets on Facebook
BOMB BAY: The capacity to increase website hits, rankings
BURLESQUE: The capacity to send spoofed SMS messages
GESTATOR: Amplification of a given message, normally video, on popular multimedia websites (YouTube)
SCRAPHEAP CHALLENGE: Perfect spoofing of emails from Blackberry targets
SUNBLOCK: Ability to deny functionality to send/receive email or view material online
SWAMP DONKEY: A tool that will silently locate all predefined types of file and encrypt them on a targets machine
UNDERPASS: Change outcome of online polls (previously known as NUBILO).
WARPATH: Mass delivery of SMS messages to support an Information Operations campaign.
HUSK: Secure one-on-one web based dead-drop messaging platform.

The list, dated from 2012, says that most of the tools are "fully operational, tested and reliable,” and adds: "Don't treat this like a catalogue. If you don't see it here, it doesn't mean we can't build it."

"We only advertise tools here that are either ready to fire or very close to being ready," the document notes.

Well, they didn't list "assault weapons", so maybe we're making progress.

That looks far to vast to be possible, Ext.

They are all assault weapons, Eric.

I am with Porch on the budget plan, for a reunion. I don't do cruises because I get seasick and don't trust the food.
Washington DC sounds like a possibility or maybe Texas. I'll be in Atlanta the last weekend in May2015.
I love that Arizona sheriff Babeau who called Jeh the Homeland Security guy a liar today for telling Congress that he is coordinating with the mayors and governors of the states wrt illegals being bussed into their states.
He said he heard through the grapevine of the feds plan to bring illegals to Pima and got the word out and the protesters arrived. The busses never showed up but they remain wary that the feds may try to sneak them in at night.
The Nebrasks governor should ship the illegals that snuck into his state to Washington DC.Let Obama sort them out.Let's find some well to do couples who can't have children to adopt some of these kids.They need to speed up their hearings and make their decisions.
Cornyn and Cuellar have a combined bill to speed up the hearings but Perderdast Reid says there is no Dim support for it.
I liked Gutfeld's summation of Obama -Nero fiddled, Obama 's playing an entire orchestra crying the immigration blues. No one is blaming repubs. This is the Curse of Obama.

Threadkiller

Upon review, Mad Max mobile is out.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

I think the joke is that only one of the weapons depicted is really an AK-47, and it is the one labeled incorrectly an M-16 on the top left. The weapon on the top right is the M-16. Facts mean nothing to the gun-grabbing advocates in the MSM.

maryrose

Holder going after Sarah Palin absolutely sickened me.He such a wuss he has to pick on a girl. Nah Nah Nah...
I love that the left manufactures a poll to try to shut her up. Obama would garner about 99% of RV's that would love to never hear his arrogant whiny voice anymore.

If only! (Eric Holder is in contempt, correct?)

Blake Farenthold ‏@farenthold 8m

The #House passed my amendment to HR 5016 preventing federal employees held in #Contempt of Congress from being paid with taxpayer dollars.

JR:
The left like Kerry in 2004 don't know jack-crap about guns. The picture of Obama holding the rifle incorrectly or Pink sneakers Wendy looking like a fool holding one is so obvious. We are not that stupid. Just because they are stuck on stupid doesn't mean everyone else is as well.
So FEC destroyed their hard-drive also to cover-up campaigning for Obama against Romney in 2012. Once again I state the 2012 election was stolen by fraudulent means and after this is proven all lawlessness that occurred under Obama must be declared null and void.

maryrose

cc: Does that mean Holder and Lerner have to get their paychecks elsewhere?

One would hope so, maryrose, but I sincerely doubt anything will come of it.

All the romantic subtext with Sif and Amora the Enchantress is going to have a lesbian edge now. The press release just makes me want to call her Thorita.

The thing is, the actual comics have become addicted to gimmicks to goose sales. Hence all the reboots and alternate universes and left-wing culture memes regularly getting trotted out. Occasionally one turns out OK, like the Civil Wars arc a few years back.

Danube on iPad

I note that assault weapons didn't make the cut.

Jane

Maryrose,

I don't know if you saw my post about Caro on Sunday. Apparently on her way to her boat she took a right turn and ended up in the Alps which she is climbing. (Yikes). She sent me a pix of their route which I posted on facebook. Next they are going to Slovina or Italy.

I tell ya, she is one amazing chick.

Rolling Stone has compiled a more definitive record of “The 5 Most Dangerous Guns in America":

Jane:
Yes I saw the post and I am so happy for her.We visited the Alps and Germany and Austria as a second honeymoon in 1982. My grandparents are from Luijblana And Zagreb Yugoslavia. My mother spoke Slovenian as a child and had to learn English with the help of her cousin in first grade.My grandparents spoke heavily accented English and theirs was an arranged marriage to provide passage from Yugo to the USA.

From TK's link you'll find Top Men are working with Chuck "I'm Helping The GOP From The Goodness In My Heart" Schumer to resolve this crisis while simultaneously extending their collective middle fingers to the Honorable Senator from Alabama.

JIB:
I hope to visit Slovenia one day. Unfortunately my Irish dad would not allow my mom to teach us Slovenian. I went to high school with girls who spoke it at home fluently.

maryrose

Have I mentioned that Senator Sessions expresses exactly how I feel on the issues. He is absolutely correct but alas -a voice in the wilderness because the Top Men remain mired in stupidity. It must be so frustrating to be in the Senate. No wonder Coburn is leaving.

Jane

I'm not sure I even know where Slovenia is. But I'll tell you one thing: Caro is the best person on the planet to travel with. Anyone who can sail a thirty foot boat across the Atlantic by herself is not to be toyed with.

matt

as far as I know, semi-automatic handguns are still pistols as are derringers.There are even machine pistols such as the MAC-10 and UZI. I would guess the differentiator is the calibers used would be the typical handgun calibers, 9mm, .40 Cal, .45 cal. etc.

The come sub-machineguns like those cool little HK's and Steyrs that European border police carry.

Watching World Z the other night I realized that if we are ever to repel either zombies of aliens we are going to need lots of large caliber automatic weapons. It seems to take 3-10 rounds of .223 to drop a zombie, let alone some nasty alien.

The Army is re-opening the debate on sidearms. I think, finally, everyone agrees that the Beretta 92 sucks.

As to Thor let's see what happens when they try to option the movie rights for the new Chelsea Manning version. Somehow I think most fans are going to stick with the large virile Viking dude. Gay Supermen and transgendered Batpeople just aren't going to sell in Shanghai and Mumbai and Red America.

I'll never believe the the Green Hornet is gay.

Jack is Back

maryrose,

I love Slovenia. Jane, it is south of Austria, north of Italy and west of Croatia. Always was the most western and independent of Tito's Yugoslavia. It's were they breed the famous Lipinzaner stallions, Since Caro is a skiier she is missing her chances in the summer to ski Krasnja Gora, one of the great mountains in the Julian Alps.

Llubjana is the perfect place to hang out and chill.
