You know having all of the HuckPac brain trust, one of them Hogan Gidley, showed up at
the Game Change premiere, for reasons passing understanding, is not un unalloyed blessing,

Jack is Back!

Why should anyone be required to use their iPad the way you say they should, Sara?

Geez, you sound like Obama and his health care mandarte. Either buy that app and external keyboard or we'll derogate you with unnecessary criticism.

Jack is Back!

KU running away with it. White is too emotional and can't calm himself or his team down. Shame.

"Santorum's comments are outrageous"

I really hate that guy, and shudder to imagine him in the White House. Thank God he's not getting there.

On the iPad you can select, then copy, a URL and then paste it in the bottom bar as an LUN. i elect not to do so, confident that interested readers can readily use Google.

Whoa! Two blocks setting off fast breaks in crunch time! Jayhawks rockin' their way to New Orleans.

It seemed to me that the second block was clean. I wasn't sure about the first one, but the Tar Heels weren't complaining.

Jack is Back!

Thanks for the correction on McAdoo. For some reason I thought it was Bob McAdoo's off spring. But he does look like him.

Janet

Everyone knows

??? Not me...& anyway, why is it any of your business how someone posts? I don't think you have any idea how irritating you have become, Sara.

JiB: Why would I care how anyone uses their iPad?

I don't care. I was trying to be helpful with a link to an app that solves the not able to link problem.

Ext: Since Blogpress works on both iPhone and iPad, I don't think you need an external keyboard.

Frau Shikse

Clarice, thanks for the clearing that up.

Jane

Clarice,

It is an extension but also an expansion of any one we have ever had before. Something about more power over Americans.

Has anyone come up with a good explanation for how a race war helps Obama? It doesn't seem to me that scaring the white folk will net him any votes, but I'm obviously not seeing the big picture as well as the MSM and other Dems are.

All I can think of is he believes people will be motivated by the notion that only a black man can quell the unrest and a need to prove they are not racist, with their votes.

Ah, CNN shows the sensitivity, it is known for;

Dateline NBC doing their best to pre-empt the State's Attorney's investigation into the Trayvon Martin tragedy. My suprise meter has just now pegged out again.

I hear JJ and the race baiters are doing another march, speech fest and candle light ceremony again tonight.

Captain Hate

Condolences to daddy and other Hole fans. The good news is Harrison Barnes will probably be back next season because his draft stock dropped like a rock without Marshall getting him the ball to get him on track.

Danube of Thought

Roy Williams and his team appeared to lose their composure late.

Extraneus

Ext: Since Blogpress works on both iPhone and iPad, I don't think you need an external keyboard.

You must mean someone else, Sara. I don't have an iPad.

Yet.

And that's only because I had a large stake in Apple about 12 years ago and sold it for a 40% profit. After kicking my own ass over that since then, which has usually resulted in an audible response you wouldn't want to hear, I've had some trouble buying their stuff.

Except for my beloved iPhone, that is.

narciso

Well this would be the normal reaction to such a tragic event,

Extraneus

All I can think of is he believes people will be motivated by the notion that only a black man can quell the unrest and a need to prove they are not racist, with their votes.

Wouldn't that require that he kept his post-racial image? Only a fool would think that he has, and he already has their votes.

Danube of Thought

We're about to get some rain. I'm gonna build a fire, then build a Martini and sit chuckling about Dana Ward. Sorry, no links; I'll be on the iPad.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Janet:

All I was trying to do was be helpful to someone who constantly tells us he can't provide a link because he is on his iPad. Since I have a friend who sends me links and pics from his iPad all the time, I know it not to be true that you can't link from an iPad.

You think maybe this is just another incident of finding a reason to jump on me and make something out of nothing? Ya think?

I don't give a darn what anyone does or doesn't do with their computers and tablets. DOT never gives a link and apparently sees nothing wrong with not doing so. La dee da for him.

So DOT jumps in with one of his snarky attempted put downs, JiB follows suit, Ext puts his two cents in, and now you. It is mindboggling.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Burt Sugar, legendary in the boxing field has died at 75.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Sorry Ext, brain fart on my part.

Jane

Wouldn't that require that he kept his post-racial image? Only a fool would think that he has, and he already has their votes.

The people who vote that way don't pay attention and live on lyrical soundbites from the man who made the oceans rise (or stop rising, I forget).

Extraneus

Ext puts his two cents in

Is that what I did? I thought I was letting you know you might have been responding to someone else.

Extraneus

Ooops. Sorry for the quick reaction.

Jane

Sara,

Read this.

It's what people are reacting to.

Ralph L

I'll be on the iPad
That sounds like you're surfing from the throne.

Sue of the Wisdom

Well Frau, BF could be worse. He could be a
Romney supporter, the real kiss of death.

I'm sure that is why you get on every last nerve I have, Sara. Your support of Romney. It never dawned on me...that reason. I thought it was your sarcastic comments when someone doesn't agree with you. And your whining. But mostly your whining.

Now really Howie, you're shocked gambling is going on here;

Sara, I always look at your recommendations even though most don't apply to me. Sorry it's only a photo -

sbw

Sandy, there are some directions the conversation could take that are not productive because they can be misused by others.

Far better for us to assume that since the country's institutions have managed to survive three years of abuse that they can hold together until the election is held, leftists defeated, and a better replacement sworn in.

Sara, the only link problem I have with iThings is getting a link to a story from a native app-- I have to search then link. Search results and app original often do not match.

Jim Ryan, if you're still reading -

Aspall (various kinds)
Sam Smith's Organic

There are more but I can't remember them just now.

It's as if you are making Janet's point for her.

So this is interesting, not the sectarian part but where he has been stationed;

A fact: In Chicago, the killing continues almost uninterrupted. Where are the community leaders? In Florida?

Danube of Thought

"So DOT jumps in with one of his snarky attempted put downs, JiB follows suit, Ext puts his two cents in, and now you."

Everybody's always picking on poor Sara. Maybe it's because she's got an eggshell skull, and it's so easy to set her hair ablaze. Anyway, it's just too much fun to resist.

Explaining the Hispanic/white situation.

Clarice

The QaPo has a big piece on him in today's paper, narciso should you care to read it. He manages the Counter terrorism branch; converted when he married a Moslem woman and is not particularly religious. (And < Janet, he's a big smoker.)

Clarice

**WaPo**

narciso

I did, that's why I focused on his postings in Cairo, and in Baghdad, the last he seems
to have beneficiary of Horton's attack on the previous candidate. they contrast him with those who had been with the ghost sites, favorably of course, how gauche;


Terry McDermott's new tome on the KSM hunt, has some interesting material, although it also relies on Soufan, to spin the web, although Gaudin his partner does come up, but only to reinforce, not challenge the memes.

Porchlight

I like QaPo, Clarice. Has a vaguely Al-Jazeera-like quality to it.

Oddly, the Forbes link is having a fit.

Has anyone come up with a good explanation for how a race war helps Obama? It doesn't seem to me that scaring the white folk will net him any votes, but I'm obviously not seeing the big picture as well as the MSM and other Dems are.

Throwing gasoline on racial issues would theoretically gin up the black vote. I think he's given up on whites except the true believers.

Danube of Thought

Maybe Q'aPo.

"He manages the Counter terrorism branch; "
Wonder how a high ranking Muslim would fare
on any of the Arabic countries if he married a Christian and announced he had converted to her religion?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Jane: I have no idea why a quickie statement should get everyone's panties in a wad. I was on my phone at the time and the fewer words the better.

Sue: You think I whine? I don't know what about. I comment just like everyone else, and not very often anymore.

Frau Shikse

Did he convert in order to marry or for a more personal reason?
Lack of registration kept me from reading the entire article.

Clarice

From the Post article it's hard to say--he was stationed in Africa and then the Middle East, found and married a Moslem woman and converted is the way I recall the article.

Melinda Romanoff

Porch-

It sets up the guilt impulse vote. Right now they're setting the back fires, getting things on the way to a Spring Simmer.

I wonder what the next act is going to be. A set up here in Chicago would be too easy, especially if it's "Suicide-by-Cop".

Neal Katyal, acting US Solicitor General, on ObamaCare:

If the Supreme Court struck this down, I think that it wouldn't just be about health care. It would be the Supreme Court saying: 'Look, we've got the power to really take decisions, move them off of the table of the American people, even in a democracy. And so it could imperil a number of reforms in the New Deal that are designed to help people against big corporations and against, indeed, big governments. The challengers are saying that this law is unconstitutional, which means even if 95 percent of Americans want this law, they can't have it. And that's a really profound thing for an unelected court to say.

This paragraph is one of the all time most distorted arguments I have ever seen in my life.

Clarice

When he says 95 % of Americans want this law, he is speaking hypothetically, isn't he?

I imagine the govt's arguments will be knee slappers if this remark is any indication..

Clarice

Ah, I see he's no longer the Solicitor General--just took over briefly when Kagan left.

Jim Ryan

Thanks, DrJ and Porchlight. Making notes....

I'm liking this gluten-free nonsense. I sense a 12.3% enhancement of my overall health.

jimmyk

The Dem thinking on how a race war helps Obama must be that it will make everyone realize how racially polarized we still are, and that we really need four more years of Obama's transcendent post-racial leadership to bring us all closer together. Now whether more than a few dozen people in Berkeley and the Upper West Side of Manhattan would actually fall for that is another question.

glasater

I am so far behind on the threads so am apologizing in advance if someone has made this comparison previously -- but the uproar over this horrible killing of the Martin boy reminds me in a way of KONY2012 and how people were viewing the YouTube video of the killings in Africa.
ISTM that people want to get worked up over something/anything.

The horrible thing to me is that this Martin kid was left on his own and did not have some kind of adult supervision in his life. He was a cast off kid basically.

narciso

Well what does really expect from'

the lead counsel for the Guantanamo Bay detainees in the Supreme Court case Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, which held that military commissions set up by the Bush administration to try detainees at Guantanamo Bay "violate both the UCMJ and the four Geneva Conventions."

On the hand, he did defend Ashcroft against a bogus charge.

Sue of the Wisdom

And that's a really profound thing for an unelected court to say.

Unless, of course, the unelected court does something you agree with, then they are just getting it right.

jimmyk

I imagine the govt's arguments will be knee slappers if this remark is any indication..

Yeah, I don't recall that line of reasoning being mentioned for Roe v Wade, or, for that matter, Brown v Board.

You don't even try.

Sad really.

"The socialists were reduced to a mere 7 Seats thus losing their status as an official Parliamentary party and losing public funding."

What a joyous day that would be if we could do the same.


PaulL

Sorry about that Clarice. He served just from May 2010 to June 2011.

narciso

Back to 'Roger' he was smart enough not to be caught in 'the endzone' dance over Bin Laden, that the rest of the White House did,I'm wondering though, what is the point of this story.

Clarice

Better than that--his 95% remark suggests the ourt should take public opinion into consideration and the last time I looked about 78% of the voters HATE Obamacare..And how many states are up there fighting it? A majority I believe.

Danube of Thought

"Oddly, the Forbes link is having a fit."

Oddly? Only to those who fail to grasp the scope of the conspiracy. Look, if they can plant phony birth announcements in the Honolulu papers fifty years ago, take the trouble to make an irrelevant dictum disappear from an online Supreme Court reporter, silence Bill Clinton by assassinating his friend, and mysteriously force Leo Donofrio to abandon the practice of law, isn't it a mere trifle for them to prevent you from linking to an article?

Clarice

Usually, narciso, it's to suck up to officials to get leaks. when I was young, at the dawn of history, the NYT used to have a Man of the Week column, fluffing some new appointee and from then on shrewd observers knew exactly where all the inside information about his office originated.

On the other hand, 'winning the future' is going on here;

"it would be the Supreme Court saying, 'Look, we've got the power to really take decisions, move them off of the table of the American people, even in a democracy.'"

Didn't they soay that in Roe v. wade?

Clarice

Didn't they say that on the Michigan AA case?

Sandy @08:26 p.m.

I am proud that Americans have kept their powder dry for more than 200 years -- not because they expect to use it, or wish to intimidate, but because experience has taught Americans to err on the side of caution and to be prepared.

Re: the gated community at the Retreat at Twin Lakes: with the power of Google Earth I was able to put myself on the street just outside the community and look around.

The "gate" is just a toolbooth type gate that would swing down to block cars; any pedestrian or bicyclist would just step around it. [OOPS- either my eyes or my memory betrayed me; I put up some Google screen shots in a new post, showing actual gates in background.]

I did not take away the impression that Thurston Howell III and his fellow one percenters were living behind the gates, either, since it was mostly townhouses.

I should get a pic.

narciso

He apparently was chosen by Rodriguez's Goss;s man, since that backstabbing weasel Grenier, wasn't doing the job, well he was putting the shiv in Libby at the right moment
'so from a certain point of view'

Threadkiller

You keep saying the birth announcements are phony. Where did you get that idea?

Did the Forbes link open for you?

Threadkiller

Good point on what you call irrelevant dictum. We don't disagree that it was scrubbed. You just have no explanation why.

Sue of the Wisdom

If someone kills Zimmerman, who will the media blame?

Mad Jack

I believe Thurston lived on a lilly white enclave called Gilligan's Island. West coast of Fla I believe :-)

Clarice

If there was anything forged I expect it was the Selective service card. I doubt he even realized he needed it until he ran for President.

Something may be hinky with the birth certificate--the one he put on his website at any rate. But I doubt the birther issue is the real one.

Now for some more sherbet:

He needed the Selective Service to receive student loans, as well as be eligible for any public office. He should have known about this for some time.

Gmax

I dont know why but I am overcome with the urge to type:

excitable, melodramatic and unintentional hilarious.

Jim Ryan

Nice try, DoT. The conspiracy has no trouble sending decoys like you out to mock the conspiracy theorists with sarcasm. Indeed, the better your refutation of the theory, the fuller support it provides for the theory because the conspiracy would certainly hire the best in the business to throw us off the scent. In fact, at this point, I gauge the soundness of the theory as proportionate to the strength of the case against it.

I hope the pay is good.

Janet

even in a democracy.

We are a Constitutional Republic. We are governed by the rule of law, not mob rule.

which means even if 95 percent of Americans want this law, they can't have it.

Damn straight! Does this guy not understand our country at all? He should move to Zimbabwe where the 95% mob can take away property or anything they want.

Clarice

Just think, Janet, that dim bulb was Justice Breyer's clerk and then acting Solicitor General.

Jim Ryan

You tell me. A conspiracy so powerful it can get a non-citizen into office as POTUS undetected - you think it can't manage to eliminate all evidence whatsoever that the man was born abroad? Shyeah! Right. You're dreamin'.

No, Obama is no U.S. citizen. We know this thesis to be true from the complete lack of evidence for it.

Threadkiller

It was detected alright.

The same media that we believe has the power to start a race war suddenly is nardless when it comes to creating Obama's narrative. Got it.

Danube of Thought

You keep saying the birth announcements are phony

Isn't that an article of faith amongst the birthers? I'm just taking you folks at your word.

Thomas Collins

It's hard for me to believe that Katyal is that stupid. He should be held to account for making a blatantly political statement to attempt to intimidate tge Supreme Court. In effect, he has signed on to the Axelplouffe political operation. The US deserves more from a former Acting Solicitor General.

Danube of Thought

the better your refutation of the theory, the fuller support it provides for the theory because the conspiracy would certainly hire the best in the business to throw us off the scent

That's precisely the point: the less the evidence in support of the theory, the greater the proof of the conspiracy. (Conspiracies of this kind are just deucedly hard to disprove.)

And yes, the pay is great. And the conspirators have a way of keeping it all from the IRS, whose commissioner I believe is in on the whole thing in any event.

Thomas Collins

I realize Katyal is no longer with the government, but I still believe he has fallen below the standard one has a right to expect of former high ranking legal officials in the DOJ.

Clarice

TC, piffle. It's a stupid thing to say. He's in no position to intimidate anyone on the Ct. and I bet if his old bosses Kagan and Breyer see it, they'll be embarrassed for him.

Sandy Daze

Here you go, TM:


OS~OMG~ABO,
Sandy

Danube of Thought

We know this thesis to be true from the complete lack of evidence for it

Well, there are the birth announcements in the two Honolulu newspapers, which very definitely constitute evidence, admissible in any US court (along with the State of Hawaii's documents).

I think you need to compare notes with TK and let me know whether the birth announcements are phony or not. He seems to think not; how about you?

Jim Ryan

When did they get to you, DoT. When did they get to you!

Clarice

Yes, it sure does not look like anything terribly secure or swanky and I can see why they'd appreciate a neighborhood watch group/ Still, I suppose that if you enter the grounds without permission you are trespassing.

Danube of Thought

We don't disagree that it was scrubbed. You just have no explanation why.

I have no idea at all whether it was scrubbed; I'm just accepting your contentions. Ditto the birth announcements, although I'm not sure what they are at this point. Indeed I have no explanation for an event that may or may not have occurred and is in any event utterly inconsequential for several reasons.

Now: was Clinton's friend assassinated? Who was it? Why did Leo Donofrio suddenly withdraw from the practice of law?

MarkO

You know, I yield to no one in wishing there were a way to force Obama from office without the need for an election, but this is an incoherent position: "No, Obama is no U.S. citizen. We know this thesis to be true from the complete lack of evidence for it."

There is, in fact, a great deal of evidence that Obama is a U. S. Citizen. It may seem weak, it could be false, there may be other impeaching information, but to begin the argument by stating the thesis is true because of the lack of evidence is to frame the argument to lose from the outset.

It is on a par with claiming the science is settled. One needs to take the existing evidence, present the best case it makes and then impeach, undermine, refute or otherwise deal with it. On this score, although I disagree with his legal conclusions, there is much to be learned from TK.

Jim Ryan

I'm just poking fun, DoT. The birther issue makes me shrug. "I'm sure I don't know," as they said in the old days.
