hit and run

You can google different phrases from the trollbot's comment and find that he has posted some or all of it in any number of places over the . . . years.

Not that I did. I've just heard.


Cross posting my snark because I have started drinking.

--"Alas it was not my document I was editing and felt I could fix it for free where my architect would bill me by the hour for fixing it...

Not to bad. Almost 7 hours fixing it for free. :-)

Ha Ha TK.

Opportunity Cost was still zero today.


Speaking of drinking. DoT, I will be camping at Silver Strand in January. I would enjoy meeting you.


Wow! Not any of the irregular regulars?

Well, once is enough. Into the Narcisolator!

Thanks Wordle!


Andy is going back where the nice people listen to it and stuff.


Good grief. What was that?

JM Hanes-

In re: 5:23. I was being mostly snarky in my previous comments-mostly surprised that the Dems moved on the "tax cuts for the middle class" at all. If a deal in the Senate were to collapse and it get shoved into next year, the tax hikes take effect at the front end of the mid-term. The President and the Dems could let it go and hope that the economy starts to recover and that the tax hikes will be forgotten. Also, the Rep House is going to have a full agenda and I could see them sending something up once or twice, but it would get pointless if it won't even get on the Senate's schedule. FWIW.

I know that I can get long winded, but wow, that comment has to be a record.

re: 4:38. Paying taxes is patriotic!

Much like they said of the Labour Party's 1983
platform, the one that gave Forsyth the idea
for the "Fourth Protocol" Rich, 'it's the world's longest suicide note', the question is how much sttrychnine will they giving the economy in the process


Nice job JMH.

I can just make out "Eddie" and "Iron Maiden."

ha ha ha ha ha!

Look out, it's lookin' literate.

I figure that if I run through that at scanning speed about 40 times I'll absorb it. I'm up to three, now.


brava, jmh..



Pretty much. The Dems boxed themselves in though and we should cheer them as they march over the precipice (and hell they weren't even smart enough to cashier the leadership that brought about their midterm shellacking). Not that I want to see taxes go up, but something has got to give, and this could be a "teachable moment".

Back to scanning.

Jumping around a little here; let's see if I got this straight. Old Lurker posted the 10,000 plus word architect's plans after intervention by cathyf and DrJ?

Very funny Kim.

Some of mine made almost as much sense!

I don't know about cathyf,but I've got a trick in Word that will allow me to do just that.

Should I post it?

anything that will put more money in the hand of the serial spenders and less in the hands of the people who worked for it. people need to realize this not a debate about cutting taxes. this is a debate about raising taxes. the biggest problem in the country is that the politicans already have too much of the workers income.

That Wordle is great JM Hanes!


Great idea Kim. If you blink real fast, while scrolling, this is what you">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UocF4ycBnYE&feature=related"> see.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

These are not tax "cuts" and everyone should stop using that term. The tax cut took place almost 10 years ago. This would be a whopping tax hike and I don't think the average American understands this. I know it, in fact, after a conversation with several people the other night. When I said, you realize you are going to see a big reduction in your take home pay starting in January if the Congress fails to act, 4 of the 6 people there did not know this. They thought nothing would change if Congress did nothing and that they would see a tax cut if they did act.

Janet CEO Redneck Beauty Salon Inc.

Yeah Sara..you gotta wonder why we even HAVE newspapers & news shows on TV?


Is it just me or does Obama always seem to skip town when bad news comes out. Midterm results, bad jobs report, oil spill. Krauthammer says he's enamored of celebrating his own accomplishments. A year ago he finally decided to increase troops in Afghanistan, a no brainer for anyone else and so he's there today congratulating himself.Now today he finally got a trade deal with South Korea after failing to close the deal about a month ago. I guess if you can't get START this will have to suffice as a foreign policy achievement. It just shows how truly desperate they are for any victory. I'm still steamed about his reneging on oil drilling for Florida and Louisiana. I suppose he's still smarting from Jindal's criticism.


somebody should send that 4:42 post to WikiLeaks...by the time Assange gets done reading it Interpol will be knock knock knockin' on Kevin's door.

yeah, i know, there's no "Kevin" involved...i just needed the rhyme. [Dylan]knock knock knockin' on Kevin's dooooooor...[/Dylan]

Is the punch line to the second-hottest joke in North Korea.

Guy says, "My committee chair is making me visit his wife every 3rd, 13th and 23rd of the month. She puts kim-chee all over my body and does things to me that I detest, regret and delight in. There is a beating afterwards and I must pay her half of my recent paycheck. I find three merit points in my file the next day. She calls it 'bubu, which sounds like 'grandmother' and also 'weekly family receipt form.' What am I to do?"

The guy's comrades pause a moment and look at him and say, "Is your committee chair Comrade Han? Don't tell us you are in Office of Field Reform under Comrade Han."

Guy says, "Yes, that is he."

The guy's comrades look at each other and then reply. "Comrade, the only cure for that is more bubu."

The best response for that sort of screed is simple.

Very well self explained but not for me.

Thank you.

Let me know how it goes.

And I know you will.

I'm not risking "or else". You're getting every last cent in my wallet.

In fact,I'm going to take all the money in my wallet right now -- and send it an equivalent amount to each and every JOMer who requests it.

No. Make that double the amount in my wallet right now.

Email me. You'll get double the amount in my wallet right now.

If you know the secret code,that amount will be tripled.


HEH, Hit.

Adding insult to injury for their party, at least 13 Democratic state lawmakers have joined the Republican ranks since Election Day -- deepening GOP gains and in one case handing the party the state House majority.

A great ballplayer and a great guy, Ron Santo passed Thursday. Many news presenters are calling him a hall of famer, but he may be the best player (OK second best) not in the hall. Ron was a gold glover 6 times, 9 times an all star, .300 lifetime avg, top 100 all time in homers and rbi. He was Cubs radio broadcaster recent years, lost both legs to type 1 diabetes, finally contracted cancer. He smiled through it all along with the gross indignity of not being selected by the hall each year. R I P # 10.
