JUST FYI our Alaskan Earthquake this morning was a 4.7 shaker
and not too far away.

Usually when I click on the Cal/Nevada Earthquake map under the LUN, It'll usually read about 400 earthquakes on the map for the last week. Right now its at ">http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/Maps/special/California_Nevada.php"> 1667 for the last week, probably much due to aftershocks from the Mexicali 7.2 from a couple days back.

Up here we are still sitting at out standard ">http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/Maps/special/Alaska.php"> 290 for the week, close to our average of 300, even with Redoubt starting to come out of hibernation.



I can honestly say that was the first time I absolutely couldn't decode your typos.

Have you been drinking?


I was eating lunch and typing at the same time.


LOL - been there. done that.


Next time I won't unlessi t's definitely of the non dripping sort of repast.

Clarice, you can eat and read Cleo's crap? Strong stomach.

So, Chris Matthews claimed that without the selfless progressives, America would be just like Calcutta.

Truth is ... with those selfless progressives, America is just like “O Calcutta.”

They didn't look up to the U.S. because we hated communism,

Yes, they did. I've heard them say it.

I don't care if Obama wants his admin to take a different tone, so long as they don't believe it to the point they miss important things like the growing presence of terrorists in Yemen.
It was Obama's own people who said they were surprised about that after the Christmas day bomber, despite two Yemen-trained killers in the US the year prior.

Jack is Back!

Joe Hare should read Regan's Fudan speech. He might learn something.

It is 76F here in Southampton and some roads are still flooded in the low spots. Took the South and North Ferries today to Greenport and a drive up Island to Orient Pt. Incredible amount of water still standing. And both the South and North Fork are glacial till with sandy-loam soils. Hard to believe that in 10 days it still has not drained down.

Looks like this spring and summer will be scorchers unlike the monsoon weather of last summer in New York and the North East.

narciso the harpoon

It really shouldn't surprise that General Jones 'minder' at the NSC, and one of Obama's chief speech writers doesn't know what he is talking about, or just naturally mendacious

Rick Ballard

Very cool - Obamacare is so popular that Harry Reid has been forced to conduct a Stealth Political Tour.

Relax, Dingy, you're dead meat and there's nothing in the world that can change that. The real downside for you is that you're too damn dumb to be worth anything on K St.


So what is it now ...

Rick, one is reminded of the Python sketch on the 'value of not being seen' he really is the same schlub that Dick Smothers portrayed
in Casino


wonderful, Rick..Reid's secret mystery bus trip.


Harry Reid, who sounds a lot like an "angry Wally Cox," seems destined for the center square.

Rick Ballard

I read somewhere that President Obama is very upset about people not realizing the true value of Obamacare. It's my understanding that he wants everyone who feels a need to have their unpaid medical expenses paid (or reimbursed, if paid by accident) to forward the bill to:

c/o Democratic National Committee
430 S. Capitol St. SE
Washington, DC 20003

The President feels that it is only fair that registered Democrats be the first to have all their medical expenses paid so be sure to forward this information to any Democrat that you know.

Dave (in MA)

"angry Wally Cox,"

"When trouble calls I am not slow; it's hip hip hip and away I go." ...And then after causing all kinds of damage... "I am a hero who never fails. I cannot be bothered with such details."

Jane says obamasucks

Boy Rick, that is the best plan I've seen yet.

hit and run

c/o Democratic National Committee
430 S. Capitol St. SE
Washington, DC 20003

"The truth is, in order to get ... universal health care ... the DNC is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more."
--stuff Michelle Obama (almost) said.


Rick--I'm stealing that and asking everyone I know to spread it around..
Heck-it's worth one of those billboards.

Thanks, man..I owe you so much for these unattributed "borrowings"


I thought the struggle was against "Terror." And that Islam is a religion of peace. Or am I just an unreconstructed Bushie?


Steve Gilbert pores thru the indictment of the man who'd been phoning patty Murray. Contrary to press accounts he never threatened to kill her, he said she was likely to be by someone for her stand. Also ignored by the press, the accused exlicitly stated he was not a tea party member nor a Rep or Dem.


Clarice--Thank you for tracking the Murray threat down. Good to know the fellow was just a nut in general:-)

Also for the terrific article on healthcare legalities . I put it--the article--on my FB page.

Kill the fucking senator! Hang the fucking senator! I hope somebody puts a fucking bullet between your fucking eyes. Far left liberal socialist democratic bitch. You motherfucker. You sold the fucking people of the country out for socialism. I hope somebody fucking erasers your fucking life. Yes, I hope somebody assassinates you, you fucking bitch.

As you grow older, you are going to have a target on your back forever, for voting in socialism into this country with your health-care bill and your cap 'n tax. You're gonna have a target on your back for the rest of your life. How long do you think you can hide? Yes, for the rest of your life. And there is going to be—it could be a senior citizen, could be a veteran, could be a mad momma, an upset momma. By your attempts to overtake this country with socialism, somebody's gonna get to you one way or another and blow your fucking brains out, and I hope it does happen. If I have the chance, I would do it. You have created hatred in this country against socialism, and you low-life backstabbing, lying, cheating, politicians are going to be held accountable. And hopefully it is with your life. I hope it's with your life. I hope somebody takes your fucking fat ass fucking out, I really do. And it's just my belief. I'm not a tea party bagger. I'm an independent U.S. voter. I'm neither Republican nor Democrat. I hope you fucking die. I want to fucking kill you. I hope somebody fucking hangs you, blows your fucking brains out. We will not be socialized, you fucking cunt. Get it through your fucking head. You have—You are a marked person for the rest of your fucking life, you fucking slut.


To the lousy coward at 7:30:

You post your garbage under another person's name and sully the blog that TM pays for and permits you to post upon...are you proud of yourself?

You should be ashamed.

Soylent Red

You should be ashamed.

Clarice claimed there was no direct threat to Patty Murray; the portion in bold (above) seemed germane to the discussion.


the kook in the Murray case is suggesting somebody's going to kill her but makes it quite clear he won't. It seems obvious cleo (pretend Soylent) he's nuts, but not really dangerous.

I think it was Bush who saved the biggest reef in the world.


As more facts come out, the case against the seattle nutter seems quite flimsy, another FBI in peace and war special:

Soylent Red

the kook in the Murray case is suggesting somebody's going to kill her but makes it quite clear he won't.

Funny, "I would do it" doesn't sound like he's saying he won't.

somebody's gonna get to you one way or another and blow your fucking brains out, and I hope it does happen. If I have the chance, I would do it.


Too remote. If I had the chance I'd wring the neck of any abusive troll who showed up here..but that's not a real threat because it is impossible..and in his telling, it''s impossible for him, too.

Soylent Red

So saying "I would do it", in your mind means he "makes it quite clear that he won't".

Got it.

Soylent Red

I'm curious...

What would make a person who was so sure of their moral superiority

a. spend time at a place where they will never change a single mind on any issue;and

b. post under someone else's handle?

Seems like something someone would do if they were either childish or had something they were ashamed of.

Soylent Red

I hope you fucking die. I want to fucking kill you.

In Clarice's world, this clearly means "I hope you guys have a great Easter break with the family!"

So if this guy walks Clarice will be sending him real estate listings for her neighborhood. Maybe have him over for brunch some time. He's just a misunderstood soul needing some love and understanding, that's all.

Jane says obamasucks

Does anyone have Cleo's info. I think the feds would like to know who is threatening patty Murray's life on line.

Soylent Red

See, being actually me, and being able to prove I didn't post that crap, I could (theoretically) pick up the phone to federal law enforcement, and make a complaint.

And just FYI, the FBI and Secret Service can easily tell the IP address from whence such a threat came.

In fact, I suppose anyone could make that complaint. I wouldn't mind, since I have nothing to hide...

I wonder if Bizarro Soylent would mind a midnight knock on his (or his parents') door.

"Does anyone have Cleo's info"

How much info would anyone want about the result of a chance encounter between a venereal wart and a hemorrhoid?

Soylent Red

See, being actually me, and being able to prove I didn't post that crap, I could (theoretically) pick up the phone to federal law enforcement, and make a complaint.

Interesting; you might want to run that theory past Clarice. She doesn't think that threatening to blow a congresswoman's brains out will land you in jail.

Could be an interesting conversation on your part though.

"See, there's this flame war on the internet because we defend people who want to blow a congresswoman's brains out.

Yeah! I know!

Oh, you want my address? Well, I guess you might need that to prosecute, huh?"

What a bunch of maroons.


You are free to disagree with clarice, 'cleo. Just don't steal other handles- there's no need.


By contrast, here is LeBoon's threat to Cantor:

A 33-year-old Philadelphia man was charged today with threatening to kill Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) in a profanity-strewn Youtube video that has since been pulled down.

In the video, Norman Leboon says Cantor will "receive my bullets in your office, remember they will be placed in your heads. You and your children are Lucifer's abominations."

Man Claiming Diplomatic Immunity Attempts to Light Shoe on Fire on DC to Denver Flight

He's from Qatar so it's obviously part of a Presbyterian/Mossad plot.

Soylent Red

So the common theme is blowing someone's fucking brains out.

But of course calling Murray's answering machine multiple times a day shows more intent and planning than just dumping a video on youtube.

Soylent Red

Actually I think the conversation would go something like this...

"Hey B---...I have this asshole on the internet, pretending to be me, making vaguely threatening statements about politicians. If I send you the site can you pull his IP address and find out who he is? I may want to make a complaint."

"Sure. Send it over anytime."

"Cool. You want to play golf on Sunday?"

You should be careful who you fool with cleo. You never know who they might know.

By the way...how's your poor dead make-believe son?


Both defendants, I predict, will plead not guilty because of insanity or some such and will never go to trial. One however, made a far more direct threat than the other..neither threat was made face to face was it?

"Federal air marshals subdued a man who authorities say attempted to "light his shoes on fire" on a United flight from Washington Reagan to Denver Wednesday night, federal law enforcement officials told ABC News.

Authorities say an explosive team is on the way to the airport, and that while the presence of explosives has not yet been confirmed, they believe it was an attempted "shoe bomb."

The suspect was identified by authorities as a diplomat in the Qatar embassy in Washington, Mohammed al Modadi. The FBI said the man had full diplomat immunity as the 3rd secretary and vice-consul."

Sounds like a plan!

Tell you what; I'll continue posting under your name for the interim, and when I get The Big Call, I'll stop posting under your name.

That way people will know you're the real shizznit and not just the pathetic ED-inflicted blowhard you seem to be.

You cool with that?


Soylent (the real) don't forget to tell the FBI about the racial hatred your impostor displayed.

narciso the harpoon

Qatar is where Quradawi hangs out, he advocated suicide bombings in Iraq, but when
a similar incident happened in Doha, he as much said, that's not what I meant at all.
It was also where Putin's team took out a Chechen exile leader, with nowhere as much
attitude as the Israelis have had to push up


Tell you what; I'll continue posting under your name for the interim, and when I get The Big Call, I'll stop posting under your name.

Why? You seem to want to make valid points. Why not just use your own handle and make it easier for us to converse with you?

Soylent Red

neither threat was made face to face was it?

Not that I'm aware of; but today they picked up some other guy for repeatedly calling Pelosi at her residence. Apparently he talked to her directly on one occasion.

Soylent Red

Very cool. Expect a call or visit in the next couple of days.

I really think cleo might be planning on killing Barack Obama. S/He has demonstrated obvious racial hatred under an assumed name in the comments section here. Repeatedly and in bold.

In fact, s/he's been doing it under several assumed names since Obama was elected.

Now s/he's re-publishing overt threats under an assumed name.

I don't think s/he's playing with a full deck and is capable of extremist violence. You know, his/her poor dead was a veteran. He might be trying to get back at the government.


Harassment or threat? Repeated calls, especially full of invective certainly seem to meet the harassment test.

re Pelosi arrest:

Several federal officials say the man made dozens of calls to Pelosi's homes in California and Washington, as well as to her husband's business office, reciting her home address and saying if she wanted to see it again, she would not support the health care overhaul bill that was recently enacted.

Accused man's mom blames Fox News for behavior

Gregory Giusti's 83-year-old mother had not heard that her son had been arrested, but she told ABC7 he has a history of mental problems. She does not think he would be capable of carrying out the threat; he has never owned a gun, and she blames Fox News for getting her son worked up.

Giusti was arrested Wednesday afternoon for threatening Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi over recent healthcare legislation.

"Greg frequently gets in with a group of people that have really radical ideas and that are not consistent with myself or the rest of the family, which gets him into problems," Eleanor Giusti said. "I say Fox News, or all of those that are really radical, and he, that's where he comes from."

Giusti, 48, has a long history of encounters with law enforcement.

In 2004, Giusti was convicted of criminal threats. The San Mateo District Attorney's office says he was trying to evade the fare on a Caltrain, and when the conductor tried to kick him off, Giusti started yelling and threatening the conductor's life. As a result, Giusti was sentenced to one year in county jail and three years supervised probation. He was also ordered to undergo mental health counseling.

There is also a lawsuit filed in February by Hamilton Square Baptist Church in San Francisco. It says, "Giusti has engaged in and continues to engage in a campaign of harassment" against people at the church.

Giusti also has a record of skipping out on his BART fares and causing disruptions. BART sued him in 1996.

He also has two convictions in San Francisco for welfare fraud and petty theft from 1992.

Stupid Fox news for encouraging threats against Baptists, Train operators, and petty theft (before it was even on air!).

She sounds like a good mom, and her boy just kept falling in with a bad crowd.


Soylent--enough with the psychotic troll act..okay?

Soylent Red

Just to be perfectly clear...

I am asking you to stop impersonating me to publish racist and potentially threatening posts to this comment section.

You have no legitimate purpose to do so, other than to harass or otherwise cause distress to myself and others. I believe this is your intent.

You have knowingly done so, repeatedly, with my handle as well as others in an attempt to falsely harm our reputations, and to potentially cause criminal repercussions.


Here the people rule!
Got it, Clarice,
I am late in saying how good your PJM article is.


Oh, I forgot to mention that we have had 83" of snow in the past 7 days. Global warming.


WOW! I bet teh skiing is fantastic!


Thanks, Caro..Keep your head up!
