slow news weekend.

While Ferguson has been looped around obama. This is the one that hurts him in the history books.

Maybe this is why Obama isn't shooting point on religious kerfuffles:

It is correct in the transcript:

"In the words of the book Isaiah: “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”"

He must have been wing'n it.

Sometimes the words get in the way...

AliceH

Hm. Going to disagree with you on this one, Tom. I think he was saying "It doesn’t mean the threat isn’t there and [It doesn’t mean] we can’t be -- [It doesn’t mean] we don’t have to be vigilant...".

Worlds greatest orator.

henry

We can't be ....[ insulting Islam, uhhh, it's very peaceful after the headchopping is done, uhhh, Moochelle is easier on the eye when wearing a potato sack over her entire, uhhh are potato sacks big enough, er, uhhh, don't say that, uhhh she's right over there, uhhh, er, ummm, be vigilant, uhh, don't be, er go with that] ...

I'm with AliceH. No-brainer.

Eric in Boise

Never mind parsing the meaning of "vigilance". There's this:

we are much less vulnerable than we were 10 or 12 or 15 years ago.

Unadulterated horseshit.

narciso

they seem to have an interest in skydragons among other things

Double negative. Doesn't mean . . . we don't.

If we are less vulnerable I wonder how we got there...cough...Bush/Cheney...couh...

Strip out the mumbles and you end up with

Captain Hate on the iPad

Add me to the Alice-reads-it-correctly group.

Happy birthday Elliott.

Ignatz

The problem of course is Barry's definition of "vigilant" is an evaporated southern border, playing footsy with creeps like the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas and spreading his legs for the Ayatollahs.

Rick B

While there's no sense losing our heads over Mahometan terrorists, I'd feel much safer if the JVs were facing something more than a substitute rally girl with a weak grasp of what is purportedly his native tongue.

I suppose we're a bit safer than Ukrainians in Donbas at the moment. That's comforting.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Thanks for not showing up, Fresno; even Gus and Erin Andrews aren't enough to salvage this turd.

oh, i'm livestreaming the FSU OSU game ...was looking for the UF game.

anyway. maybe i ought to blow off everything i need to do and head to the bar.

Alice does provide a logical parsing. The sound bite TM focused on is what many will hear.

Sue

It's funny how no one ever had trouble understanding what Bush meant.

Eric in Boise

"Mainly Asian Men", MM.

Uh Huh. Yup.

Good link, thanks.

that was fast 10-0 Crimonoles in Jerry's Pleasure Palace.

looks like i will be getting some work done tonight.

Stephanie accidentally OnT?

Thanks for keeping the southern end up whilst I delivered Chili's to the guys, y'all.

Yes on beer added, no on wine added, though. Wine can make the sausage a bit sour.

Yes on bread and butter. If you want bread sopping available, pour some of the stock in bowls and have at it. Yum. Also, tip for the butter, let it sit out for a while and get nice and soft so you can roll your corn in it without needing a knife. Ditto the taters.

The side benefit of doing a low country boil is the minimal clean up. Fold up the papers on the table and dump the lot in the trash. No utensils = no clean up needed.

Just make sure you have rolls of paper towels handy!

rich@gmu

is the florida game delayed?

Sue

They are calling it grooming in the article MM linked. What do they mean?

Eric in Boise

And for what it's worth, I saw Mainly Asian Men open for China Crisis at the Odeon in 1982.

Fresno ought to show up, any minute now,

Miss Marple

Eric, I like how the Daily Mail posted the pictures of those "Asian men" front and center.

Also repeatedly said they were mainly Pakistani.

I wonder how many terrorists will be scooped up in this raid; I hope a lot.

duh weather delay ... thunderstorm.

From Pagar's link:

Clare M. Lopez is the Vice President for Research and Analysis at the Center for Security Policy and a Senior Fellow at The Clarion Project, the London Center for Policy Research, and the Canadian Meighen Institute. Since 2013, she has served as a member of the Citizens Commission on Benghazi. Also Vice President of the Intelligence Summit, she formerly was a career operations officer with the Central Intelligence Agency, a professor at the Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies, Executive Director of the Iran Policy Committee from 2005-2006, and has served as a consultant, intelligence analyst, and researcher for a variety of defense firms. She was named a Lincoln Fellow at the Claremont Institute in 2011.

Probably a loon.

No. Have you seen Mike Baker's resume?

East Carolina plays D and they have much nicer uniforms than the Criminoles.
Got a couple of their hats.

I have, as a matter of fact. So there's a 50/50 chance she's a loon, right?

Sue

Really? What's the tell?

I guess I got he's making a funny. I'm saying her resume means nothing if you know Scary Larry, et al.

The Pirates are pretty far from where you are at Ignatz.

Beasts of England

My last comment on the Low Country Boil, lest I head to the grocery store at 8:30 this evening(!), but I'd suggest a nice, buttery Chardonnay for a beverage. I'm sure there are some appropriate beers, as well, but other than suggesting PBR, I'd leave that to henry, et al.

Stephanie a proud athletic supporter...wut?

Almost anytime a new resource with new actors is mentioned, he usually responds with "loon" or "might be a loon" as a riff on DoT calling most of the people TK links to as loons. Like Taiz, or the folks involved in the Fuddy conspiracies.

Ignatz

Hey, I was rootin' for Argentina a month or so ago, rich. :)

narciso

No I meant the team, Fresno State, no Lopez is rather solid from all indications,

Beasts,

Our family just finnished eating a Low Country Boil, thanks to you, Stephanie and JiB.

Thanks, I had never tried to do one, but we are all grateful that I did. Even though, they were complaining how hot it was as they slopped it all down. Ha!

rich@gmu

yeah, they defaulted too ... good thing I only have to like metric football once every 4 years.

go rain ... the swamp earning its name.

Stephanie a proud athletic supporter...wut?

I'm surprised some lefty loons haven't started complaining about Condi being named to the NCAA playoff committee.

Jameis is playing like he thinks each play should be laid out on a platter for the heisman.trophy.winner. kind of a "don't y'all know who I am" attitude.

Chris Fowler is a quality announcer and syncs up nicely with Kirk Herbstreit.

Awesome, Bori! A great meal and straight-forward in its preparation. I bet they'll want it again soon!!

Give it time, Stephanie,

when you see how Widlanski has cronicled chapter and verse, the knavery of Pillar, (the Flathead of analysis) Scary Larry, going all the way to Tenet lounging in Bandar's pool, we see why we find outself in this location

Captain Hate on the iPad

Yes, Beasts; I am finally free of the ambulatory liver spot, Brent Musberger.

Stephanie a proud athletic supporter...wut?

Yea, Bori!

Hot heat or hot spicy? Andouille can be too hot for some. You can dial it back to a kielbasa if need be.

If hot heat, next time let it cool a minute or two on the table before you dig in.

Beasts of England

'...dial it back to a kielbasa...'

Not. Touching. That. One.

rich@gmu

good grief ... 63 yard return, no td, another lightning strike.

Threadkiller

Sorry, left to guzzle a couple beers.

I was making a funny.

I like the 50/50 loon ratio. My odds have never been so good.

Stephanie a proud athletic supporter...wut?

Btw, for large parties, I recommend a fryer ring and pot (like you'd use for fried turkey) with a propane gas tank and get yourself a basket to lift the food out, and you can do multiple batches easily in the same stock.

Geaux Tigers!

Bori

Steph,

Yep, it was the Andouille that did it, I loved it! So did they but they complained all the way. They are not used to sweating during a meal. Ha ha!

Captain Hate on the iPad

Nice to see Mack Brown in the ABC studio; everybody wrote off the Horns after a bad start but Mack kept things from falling apart, the mark of an excellent coach.

Beasts of England

And Reggie Love ran one back for Wisconsin.

Also not touching that one...

Perhaps a hashtag symbol was all that was missing and that's what threw him off stride, as in:

#We Don’t Have To Be Vigilant

I think that fits in very nicely with his:

#We Don't Have A Strategy

Captain Hate on the iPad

Wisconsin playing the Tigers is an intriguing opening game matchup. Has the Mad Hatter started grazing on grass yet?

Stephanie a proud athletic supporter...wut?

Should we introduce them to boudin, beasts?

My daughter whines about the andouille, too, so I usually do some regular hillshire farms pork sausage for the weenies, too.

daddy

we are much less vulnerable than we were 10 or 12 or 15 years ago.

If we take Obama as honestly believing this, then no wonder he has no problem sitting back and watching Iran develop a Nuclear Weapon---to him it's no big deal.

Beasts of England

Several unusual top flight match-ups today, Captain. Really good for the teams and the fans.

One more brutal day of work tomorrow after I receive comments back before midnight. After that, it's just a day or two of documentation and my invoice. Then, I get to party like it's 1999 2014.

Goodnight my friends.

Bori

Steph,
Thanks for the advice but I think I will do it the same way next time. If they had not eaten it I would reconsider but they were just whining.

Daddy,

Obama and Progs can conceive the notion that if Iran has nuclear weapons that it will not use them. Much like they can't conceive that Russia could invade Ukraine or that ISIS would be unsatisfied with the territory it now occupies and would try to continue to expand.

In their closed minds they never think that others may think and act in ways that may be outside their interests in the long run. They cannot conceive that religion can give someone a purpose, a conviction that their cause is just and realizing that cause overrides other considerations.

This lack of imagination is a fatal flaw for Progs in the long run. I just hate that others have to pay a high price to prove how wrong the Progs are when things go fubar.

daddy

we can't be

1) putting the cart before the horse
2) nipping it "at" the bud
3) standing shoulder to shoulder with the Ukrainians
4) on the wrong side of History
5) having a strategy yet
6) wearing blue when Khaki is the next big thing

7) repeatedly passing by potential off-ramps

Bori,

I still think he is trying to convince himself that Putin is not invading the Ukraine.

Obama also said he had spoken earlier Thursday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel about the situation in eastern Ukraine, where Russian forces have reportedly taken control of a key coastal town.

"President [Vladimir] Putin and Russia have repeatedly passed by potential off-ramps to resolve this diplomatically," Obama said. "And so, in our consultations with the -- our European allies and partners, my expectation is, is that we will take additional steps, primarily because we have not seen any meaningful action on the part of Russia to actually try to resolve this in diplomatic fashion."

I BeHeading out with the dogs. Cheers.

Bori, another great cajun recipe for you to try sometime...

Cajun Pistolettes

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
2 tablespoons green onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped or pressed
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 pound Velveeta, cubed
2 pounds cooked crawfish meat, shrimp and/or crabmeat
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
20 pistolettes (football-shaped brown 'n' serve rolls)
Vegetable oil or shortening for frying

Sauté onions, bell pepper, celery, green onions and garlic in butter over medium heat until translucent.

Add evaporated milk, Velveeta, water, seafood and seasoning. Cook on low until just heated through. Cover and keep warm.

Fill a deep frying pan with vegetable oil about halfway. Heat oil. Fry pistolettes until they are browned, turning if necessary.

While still hot, holding fried pistolette in a potholder, make a slit in one end. Stick a spoon inside and twirl it around to make some room inside the roll.

Using a spoon, stuff with seafood mixture.

And enjoy.

Threadkiller

Half full of oil?

I have to admit my rookie-ness here. What temp on the oil?

I put on a great many inherited cooking displays to woo my soon to be wife, but mama kept us locked out of the kitchen when the oil was going off and it left me permanently 'fraid.

Draining 200 degree oil on a car never bothered me.

Weird.

Bori

Thanks Steph,

My great-grandmother made something similar only she made her own dough, and she used mild cheddar instead of Velveeta. I will give it a try with the pistolettes.
