Kins come thru also. 7-4

Even the pitcher scores. Dandy Don is singing another chorus of The Party's Over in the great diamond in the sky.

Gmax

Cards look like Zero to me, out of bullets...

Jane

Btw AB, i'm assuming those endosements were 4 years ago, before the effects of Romneycare were felt. I liked Romney as Governor.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Go NAVY!!!!

bgates

Marines in Afghanistan told not to spit towards Mecca.

How about shooting any murderous psychopathic asshole Muslims coming at them from the direction of Mecca? Is that still allowed?

henry

The Navy was magnificent today at the keel laying for the USS Milwaukee. I got a good look at the USS Fort Worth (undergoing sea trials), and met the commanders of the Gold and Blue crews. Excellent after party as well. Only the baseball sucks tonight.

daddy

I do believe St Louis just gave up.

Seems to me their last 3 batters just want it all to be over.

henry

Daddy, I agree, Since I am in Green Bay at the moment, I am glad it's football season.

BR

Born on a mountain top in Tennessee . . .
But, I ask TK, was he natural born?

You had me in stitches, MarkO, when I realized how that would apply to Obama:

If he's the messiah, he wasn't natural born. Can't have it both ways, Dems.

Melinda Romanoff

Lookie here!

My favorite, an impending land grab.

Tibet disappeared this way too.

G'night all.

(Another) Barbara

Btw AB, i'm assuming those endosements were 4 years ago, before the effects of Romneycare were felt.

Correct, Jane. And of course few of us here understand what it's like to live under Romneycare, as you of course do. Maybe I'm being more sympathetic to Romney than he merits, because I saw what our recent governor, Linda Lingle, had to live with as a Republican gov in a deep blue state, where the entire legislature and both newspapers were solidly against her. She governed as a RINO in most ways too, but had little choice about that; she got beaten down on everything else. I've assumed it was much the same for Romney.

Wish I liked watching professional sports. I can tell I'm missing lots of fun. Can I have a beer anyway?

Reminder...

Craig wasn't robbed.

daddy

Henry,

Craig really surprised me with that Homer. The others seem to just be swinging without any discipline or any heart.

Glad you're a Green Bay fan. You've got a great Football Season ahead of you.

Porchlight

Wish I liked watching professional sports. I can tell I'm missing lots of fun. Can I have a beer anyway?

Yes!

I can't seem to get to the game for more than 30 seconds at a time, between a birthday party, homework, nice environmental guy knocking at the door asking for money, and JOM.

I can't believe those photos of the dinner winners with Barry. Who was the genius who didn't allow them to drink a glass of wine (or whatever else they wanted) BEFORE the Prez sat down with them? It's just painful to look at those empty glasses. At minimum the servers should have had open bottles in hand (a good red and a good white) as they sat down.

I'm not an accomplished hostess but some things are imperative.

henry

Daddy, to be honest I declared football season in August to avoid local Brewers gloating. I grew up a Cowboys fan -- until Jerry Jones stepped in. The Packers run a nice operation and the fans are loyal even when they suck. The Pack pulled me in like the Borg. : )

Captain Hate

I'm just glad that baseball will be over before November. I don't know how cold it is there but we'll probably get frost here in NE Ohio tonight.

God the Rangers are playing sloppy ball.

Frau Überraschung

In downtown L.A. to do some research, I passed the media camp parked outside the Dr. Murray trial and the trashers' tent encrapment nearby. The city was otherwise beautiful. Most of the people on the street (and in the bus I was on) were dressed better than Pres. Bugsy in the Arlington restaurant, one that appears to have less charm than a Sizzler.

daddy

You guys really want to know how bad the Anti-Oil Lobby has crippled our Industry up here?

Well if this don't tell you how bad it's gotten then I give up.

Alaska's strippers heading south, to North Dakota

"strip dancers can make "ten times as much dancing in the oil boomtown of Williston, North Dakota" than they can in Alaska.

Gad:(

Frau Überraschung

daddy, that's awful. Will the girls hold it against Obama?

daddy

Henry,

So you're a FairWeather Dallas CowBoys Fan? Don't worry.

I'll keep it under my hat so Sue and Hit and Porch etc don't find out:)

BR

But more bloody, Obama's legacy:

Arizona Gunrunner Impact Team (GRIT)
May 1, 2010 - August 6, 2010

For full, bloody impact, see full-page photograph here.

From article by Sharyl Attkisson at CBSnews.com, 9/30/11:

"ATF Fast and Furious: Who at the White House knew?

Among the documents produced: an email in which ATF's Newell sent the White House's O'Reilly an "arrow chart reflecting the ultimate destination of firearms we intercepted and/or where the guns ended up." The chart shows arrows leading from Arizona to destinations all over Mexico.

In response, O'Reilly wrote on Sept. 3, 2010 "The arrow chart is really interesting - and - no surprise - implies at least that different (Drug Trafficking Organizations) in Mexico have very different and geographically distinct networks in the US for acquiring guns. Did last year's TX effort develop a similar graphic?"

A lawyer for the White House wrote Congressional investigators: "none of the communications between ATF and the White House revealed the investigative law enforcement tactics at issue in your inquiry, let alone any decision to allow guns to 'walk.'"

__________________________

That chart and that denial side by side is just mind blowing. It simply does not compute. The very fact of the chart's existence shows it could have been stopped since it was a US govt. operation!

Jim Miller

Another Barbara - I think Linda Lingle did quite a bit for your state -- especially considering the odds against her.

And I am really, really rooting for her in the Senate race. (If she were to win, and I think she has a good shot, that, by itself would just about guarantee a Republican Senate.)

I've written two or three posts about her over the years, and should have written more.

jimmyk

What are you talking about here?

Your response to Pagar's link on Romneycare "bankrupting" Massachusetts was:

Remind me again, how long has Romney been out of office in Massachusetts. And which big spending party has been in charge?

You seem to be suggesting that Romney is off the hook because he left office and Democrats came along and botched up his program. I would say that putting an entitlement program in the hands of Democrats is like (take your pick):

1. Leaving an alcoholic with a well-stocked bar.

2. Giving a loaded gun to a psychopath.

You get the idea. The results are pretty predictable.

hit and run

Coming up: Feliz v (Obama-loving)Pujols

This won't end quietly.

Janet

nice environmental guy knocking at the door asking for money,

I love when they come by. I like being nice...offering them water & a bathroom break if they need it...& then saying I am DONE with the environmental stuff. The organizations just want money & to micromanage our lives.

The Packers run a nice operation and the fans are loyal even when they suck.

Those are the best teams. I admire them even if they aren't my team.

henry

Daddy, the Cowbays aren't the same after Staubach anyway.

daddy

Frau,

It's tuff I tell ya', freakin' tuff.

Tiffany, Ginger, Krystal, and especially Miss Sparkle in her mukluk's with that Bald Eagle Feather act:( Gone. All gone (sob).

And here I thought last year was the winter of my discontent:)

hit and run

Pujols wasn't completely quiet.

Jim Miller

I like telling the environmental guys that I don't share their religious views. (I'm a little nicer to the environmental gals.)

That happens to be true, which makes it even better.

daddy

Just joking Henry,

Besides pulling for UNC Basketball I'm pretty well a useless sports fan orphan. At least up here, being inundated by Seattle sports, I've avoided becoming a SeaHawk's Fan (but that's not hard at all.)

Wow. Still a breath of life in St Louis.

Janet

Photo post on Japan - six months since earthquake.

daddy

How the heck do you not swing with 2 on and 1 out in the 9th Inning of Game 6?

Freese. A good guy to be at the plate. Good kid.

hit and run

Yike.

daddy

Yippee!!!!


Sorry Sue. I want it to go to Game 7 tomorrow!!!!!


Yay David Freese. Great job young man. Just showed us all what you're made of. Wow!

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vnjagvet

I guess I put Danderoo in a bad position. Xtra innings. Or as the late Skip Carey would say, free baseball.

Frau Überraschung

Janet, why do those photos make me think of New Orleans? I guess the Japanese government does more than ours does. /s

Sara (Pal2Pal)

You seem to be suggesting that Romney is off the hook

I wasn't "suggesting" anything. Didn't even use a declarative sentence.

As I recall, it was one of JOM's MA residents who first implied that this program had been d*cked around with in the last few years. Or perhaps, I'm just a dumb rube who bought into the "ruse."

hit and run

Josh wasn't robbed.

Dave (in MA)


Kind of brings back nightmares from 25 years ago.

peter

Josh Hamilton makes up for Nelson Cruz' poor fielding

daddy

Man. No quit in Texas at all.

You guy's sure Rick Perry's from down there?

Jane

AB,

He was a squish even then. Once he got into office he just faded away. The best we could do, I'm sure, but I don't recall him getting beaten down. He was pretty complicit.

I think he is smart, talented, and ethical. But he screwed us big time.

daddy

Janet,

Your photo-link looks excellent. No quit in the Japanese either from my observations.

BTW, as a Kingsville gal are you a Ranger fan?

hit and run

Sara:

Suggesting usually takes the form of not using a declarative sentence.

The Cooper Question Mark™ may have been the apex of the genre.

Dave (in MA)

There's no quit in these guys from the AAAA league, either.

daddy

Jane,

Hope your feet are nice and toasty and you're watching this last half inning. Great job today, tho' I've only read bits and pieces of your adventures on the thread.

Yesterday coming home saw a big Bull Moose in the road crossing and he had a big yellow power cord trailing behind him. Beautiful huge critter. I parked in the road on the chord hoping it would get yanked off his antlers, but instead he stopped and stared back angry at me . I went out to see if I could grab it and pull it off from afar( It was trailing about 20 feet behind him), but I saw it was tightly wrapped into his antlers so I got back in the SUV, headed home and called the Game Warden guys.

Thats what happened yesterday.

Yay St Louis. Keep fighting. Looks like they've recovered their heart.

Great Ball Game these last few innings.

Captain Hate

These relief pitchers have all turned into Jose Mesa.

hit and run

It would only be fitting for a Feldman end this series!

Janet

Yeah Frau, I kept thinking of Ground Zero. :(

BTW, as a Kingsville gal are you a Ranger fan?

I don't keep up with baseball that much but I tend to go for any of the Texas teams (except the Mavericks). I still answer that I'm from Texas even though I've lived in Virginia for 20 years now.

hit and run

Daddy - close your garage!

peter

There's no quit in these guys from the AAAA league, either.

funny!

Sara (Pal2Pal)

New Hampshire may legalize civil unions for all — including siblings

A bill that would repeal New Hampshire’s 2009 law legalizing same-sex marriage would also allow two citizens of either sex to enter into a civil union — even siblings.

lANCE bERKMAN FROM THE 2010 nEW yORK yANKEES AT BAT

Dave (in MA)

Don't say "one strike away"!!!

peter

hey, Cards fans, thank fat Elvis

Captain Hate

Janet you can cheer for the Rangers and not be a bandwagon fan because they used to be the Washington Senators.

Stephanie

Broadcasters jinx.

hit and run

What a game.

daddy

"New Hampshire may legalize civil unions for all — including siblings"

That's trite. Why not go cutting edge whole hog and allow marriage between the split personalities in schizophrenics? Man, these Politicians...always only thinking inside the box.

Where the heck is Sue?

hit and run

I'll give the broadcasters a break. They said . . . Hamilton hasn't homered in 2million at bats right before he jacked his two run shot.

Would LaRussa consider going to Carpenter at all in this game?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Where the heck is Sue?

Looking for an oxygen tank?

henry

Capt H, this game may last into November.

Janet

they used to be the Washington Senators.

Our house was owned by a Senator's player - Grunting Jim Shaw.
We bought it from the Shaw family.

Captain Hate

I can't believe I'm watching Jake Westbrook pitch in the World Series.

peter

If the Cards win tonight, I would say they are favored large to win game 7.

Captain Hate

Btw Cruz should've caught that ball in right field in the 9th. For as clutch as he's been with the bat in all the post season, that was a horrible defensive play on his part.

peter

agree, captain. he wasn't even close to it -- afraid of the wall. and the outfield was playing too deep in the tenth when fat elvis was up. (fat elvis is what Yankee fans called Lance Berkman when he was a pinstriper)

hit and run

Freese. Hero.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Look Who Cited To Justia For Supreme Court Holding.

TK: This sounds like you wrote it.

henry

Freese! On to game 7!

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vnjagvet

Holy Carp. If St Louis wins this WS, this game will go down in history as one of the best -- or at least one of the most entertaining.

Danube of Thought

I put the Rangers' chances tomorrow at about the same as the Red Sox' chances after the Buckner game.

Doom.

daddy

David Freese!

Home town kid makes wonderful---Cinderella story!

It's that goofy scene of Bill Murray playing golf in CaddyShack with the Dalai Lama come to life:)

Albert who?

hit and run

Freese wasn't robbed.

Dave (in MA)

Never say "one strike away" in a WS game six.

jimmyk

I guess they're not laughing at Freese any more.

Threadkiller

DoT, please read Sara's link. Jane, ten words will be tough.

"holy shit" is all I have right now.

Pofarmer

That was a ballgame.

Janet

Great link Sara. Here is more on President 404's sketchy life too....we used to be poor.

"Obama said that when they got married, he and Michele had a combined $120,000 in student loan debt and monthly payments on the debt were more than their mortgage."

daddy

Just watched the BaseBall Tonight replay of the highlights which took about 5 minutes, and got all exhausted all over again.

Wonderful ballgame.

Danube of Thought

"DoT, please read Sara's link."

The link tells me nothing about the law. The law as it has been declared has been declared permanently and immutably in the places where those who want to discuss it resort for authority.

I can't help those who go elsewhere for threir sources. And no amount of perfidy, fraud or technical error in those unofficial sources can change the actual law, which remains as I have described it.

Threadkiller

Will you check your fancy pants resources to see if Justia commited a crime?

Danube of Thought

Let me try again, TK:

1. Do you believe that the judicial branch will prohibit the American electorate from voting for a candidate for president on the basis of a disputed interpretation of a phrase in ancient, pre-constitutional English common law?

2. Do you believe that the chance of this occurring has been affected by whatever has taken place at something called justia.com?

A couple of simple yes or no answers should suffice.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

TK: Isn't the question whether Justia was scrubbing its site? If it was growing and was considered as reliable as Lexus and Westlaw and attorneys were relying on it, I don't see why DOT keeps talking about a particular case and common law. Isn't the concern that Justia is "rigging" their system?

Threadkiller

I believe that somebody above my pay grade believes the judicial branch could wield such power.

When such certainty on your part equally exists throughout all persons who use the same sources as you, why did McCain receive the Dog and Pony show in the Senate?

The top tier in our American government had to of known the Judiciary would not be concerned about “a disputed interpretation of a phrase in ancient, pre-constitutional English common law.”

Since you believe Justia is a cracker jack prize, and refuse to appreciate the significance of the website (it is linked directly from the uscourts.gov sites), I will not entertain your second question.

Danube of Thought

"Will you check your fancy pants resources to see if Justia commited a crime?"

I'll leave that to you: I have never heard my resources referred to as "fancy pants"; they are as available to you as they are to me. I don't have a great deal of interest in the question, because I don't think that anything they might have done would have caused a reasonable person to rely on their errors.

Probably the poor sap Donofrio feels embarrassed by what has happened to him, but he is quite a bit too dumb to know that none of his zany claims about this Justia outfit would help him any way even if all were proven true.

Threadkiller

Yes Sara, that is the core issue. Justia was altering SCOTUS case files. The question is, why?

Threadkiller

Stupid old Donofrio is concerned about the law being defiled. You are not.

(Another) Barbara

Another Barbara - I think Linda Lingle did quite a bit for your state -- especially considering the odds against her

I agree, Jim, and I'd be interested in learning some time about your interest in Linda Lingle and the reasons you admire her. Your posts about that may have been prior to my becoming a regular reader on JOM.

Mainly, she did what she could to hold back some of the legislative tide that always threatens to engulf us in Hawaii. On the other hand, she supported some really bad stuff like the Akaka Bill, perhaps to gain and hold office. In my opinion the effects of the Akaka Bill would have as damaging an impact on Hawaii residents -- including native Hawaiians, IMO -- as Romneycare has had in MA, according to Jane. More, probably.

That said, I strongly support her in her run for the U.S. Senate. She may turn out to be more like the Maine girls than we like, but would nonetheless have an R after her name. That's about all we can hope for from Hawaii.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

TK: I have a hard time thinking any lawyer knows enough about computers to even know how to coverup something. I have never seen an educated group of people more computer illiterate than attorneys. OTOH, if they are being told that a database is reliable and the information from that database is accepted by the courts, then they damn sure have a responsibility to get it right and if they don't and a case is put in jeopardy as a result, they should be liable and perhaps the actual guilty parties need to go to jail.

BR

TK, in case you didn't see mine in the previous very long thread:

Justia company profile. LUN. (Oh, good, it's still there. They haven't blocked their own profile yet :)

Approximately 51-200 employees. As of now, I don't think they're claiming to have been hacked. Therefore, someone within did it. Or gave access willingly.

The tampering with court documents appear over some months in 2008 according to the Waybackmachine screen shots. Waybackmachine takes screen shots at different times of different pages. But the tampering could all have been done in one afternoon in or before April 2008.

TK, can you tell from the alterations, what specifically is so dangerous to Obama in Minor v. Happersett? Is it both parents having to be US citizens?

BR

And then another thing, TK, you're probably familiar with the 4/3/09 CRS Memo, given to all Members of Congress on how to answer their constituents about Obama's eligibility. LUN. The doc format can't be searched, so I just did a quick visual check. Does it mention Minor?

Threadkiller

In the link that you provided, that DoT could have not possibly read, multiple sources talk about the influence Justia had in the legal community. The founder of Justia even touted that lawyers used his site more than non lawyers.

BTW Tim Stanley created "Findlaw" before he created Justia. As I understand it, only blind and stupid lepers ever used Findlaw.

BR

Drop dot and full charge ahead, it's truly going viral, so much to read on it. Obama was the crime and Justia was the coverup.

BR

Shall I wait up for you, TK :) Are you busy checking the CRS?

BR

Oh, btw, Jane - your "Can't spell election fraud without ACLU" is great. Also works with "ACORN."

BR

Wake up, TK, I want to play, TK :)

Threadkiller

The CRS Memo that I know of does not mention Minor. Leo, the stupid, is working on a report on that memo. It is mentioned in Sara's link.

Obama has had a diversion machine set up from the beginning. The topic always starts from the left. Hilary started it. Phil Berg, a Democrat continued it. The born in Kenya narrative was inescapable. Then McCain wins the repuke primary and some pissed off left wing bloggers decide to dish out payback for all the birther crap. They were too dumb to know their own side started it.


At this point some well known liberal law professor, defending McCain, writes about the know history of natural born is the child of citizen parents (plural). This gets published in a law review. Oh shit! Obama did not have citizen parents (plural)

Now Bloggers on both sides of the McCain argument are looking to prove or disprove McCain’s eligibility. As it escalates, it must have been realized that Minor, by the most minimum standard (provided by DoT), would have cast "doubts" on Obama's eligibility. The 25 cases that cite Minor's holding on citizenship would have only made things worse.

We now find out these cases went missing at the Internets #1 legal reference for bloggers. Justia was always a first hit when using Google. People who had access to the bonafide a numero uno sites refused to accept the idea that a definition quite possibly existed for "natural born". So they went about their way accusing anyone who wanted to know about "natural born" as being birthers. Hugh Hewitt, Hannity, Levin, Orieley, Medved and so on.

Now comes the Dog and Pony show of SR511. Cosponsored by Clinton, Obama, and sourced to Obama's con law professor L. Tribe for legal analysis. Some how the top legal mind did not mention Minor and the 25 cases that cited Minor. If he did mention Minor it would have then placed the "doubts", at a minimum, on Obama.

Then comes poor dumb ol' Donofrio, and he screws the whole thing up. He asked for the verification that the Sec of State in New Jersey had checked the eligibility of the candidates running for president. New Jersey was so bold to have a Nicaraguan citizen on their ballot, in addition to McCain and Obama. By New Jersey statute a citizen could go to court and force the Sec of State to verify eligibility. He took them to court and the court not being privy to DoT's and the rest of the legal worlds knowledge of eligibility, got suckered in by the "will of the people. At this point Donofrio was juggled through the system.

As it turns out Minor would have raised a great many doubts for Obama. With 25 citations, legal eagles would have had their hands full when the "show me your authority" technique was successfully rebuked.

Oh, The professor that wrote the law review article on McCain’s eligibility rewrote it to now say citizen parent instead of citizen parents. He could not modify the law review publication, so he changed in on his site and passes it off as the article in the review. He must use some real good sources to be confident enough to pull that kind of a stunt.

Good night.
