Captain Hate

I never understood why anybody would willfully inflict Genet on themselves other than to understand the techniques of a third rater.

jimmyk

Wouldn't it be a wonderful thing if this case could be investigated and the truth determined without any care or concern for the skin color or surname of those involved?

I happened to watch an episode of "Criminal Minds" last night, in which there is an alert put out for a serial killer believed to be black. A black detective voiced those exact sentiments. Needless to say, a few minutes later he was gunned down by a white homeowner who had heard the alert and was frightened by seeing a black man prowling around with a gun.

Remarkably, the serial killer did turn out to be a black man. If this had been Law & Order, it would have been a white Christian minister or investment banker.

Clarice

The play was hateful and rather bizarre despite the rave reviews and long run but the actors were all magnificent.

Captain Hate

Or a skinhead, jimmyk, which per L&O (just before I resolved never to watch again) your fair city is just crawling with.

Home run, Clarice:

I know they turned the Lynne Stewart affair,
into the Glenn Greenwald one; re Matt Hale,

And they didn't notice the irony about the
fact that 'nation's great patriot' had defended a murderous neonazi.

I had doubts about the Duke Rape Hoax early on, but when Al Sharpton didn't hot foot it down to Durham, despite the national hooopla, I knew he'd been told by locals that Crystal Mangum was a lying scamstress.

MarkO

Apparently, they've found those responsible for Obama's fact checking. This is just too good.

JiB, by shear coincidence, Mrs. MT is reading Kean's book right now. One of the mysteries that intregues me is how rare these events are today even though there are 1B+ cameras within reach around the world at any given moment. Have we lab rats entered a new test phase? ;^)

Captain Hate

That is hilarious, Mark, but at least Crow T Robot knows how to pronounce his name and doesn't sound like a stuttering imbecile.

Danube of Thought

Minus 11 at Raz today.

Ignatz

What's disturbing about events like this is the pressure put on police and prosecutors to do something different than they would otherwise have done.
Sometimes no doubt that results in justice being served but if it does it is only by haapenstance. What usually occurs is someone is prosecuted based on how the story is formed in the public mind not on typical prosecutorial standards.
So some guy who would not otherwise have been prosecuted is, or someone who would otherwise have been found not guilty goes to prison or vice versa, and the media pat themselves on the back for essentially enforcing mob rule.

Jane (Bad says Obama sucks)

Capn' are you watching the Sunday talk shows? I'm really starting to dislike Santorum a lot, and I wonder if anyone else saw him this morning. He's just nasty.

Ignatz

--Apparently, they've found those responsible for Obama's fact checking. --

If only. At least if MST were writing his stuff Barry would be intentionally funny.

MarkO

Bill Tilden should have been VP under those existing rules. I felt like I was listening to MSNBC interviewing Obama.

Captain Hate

I just watched FNS which was refreshing because Baer was hosting because Chris Wallace was still swooning after interviewing global political sooper genius George Clooney. Santorum creeps me out so much I couldn't vote for him as the anybody but Willard in the primary. Willard was interviewed on FNS and came off pretty well imo.

Clarice

I'm sorry to report that if my 27 days of grand jury duty taught me nothing, it's that the federal imprint on local prosecutors has equally skewed the prosecution of domestic violence and violence against women cases.

Ignatz

Clarice, it's customary for people to rave (deservedly so) over every new Pieces, but I genuinely think that was your best yet.
I wish every person going into a voting booth in November could read and absorb what it says about the fools in power in this country.
My only criticism was going to be a seeming overuse of the word "pernicious"; but after a little consideration what other word is there for such an anti and un American concept as CRT?

Clarice

Thanks, Iggy.

Americana Alice (formerly known as AliceH)

I actually did find a link to a Reagan speech using that Hayes story that several Obama defenders refer to (without a link of course) in other blogs' comment sections (LUN)

It's mostly the same apocryphal story, but of course the purpose, tone, and good will (taking the opportunity to make a joke about himself, for one thing) is an entirely different animal. Here's the relevant bit:

You know, one of the last times that this grand old mansion played host to an event concerning technology was back in '76 -- 1876. President Rutherford B. Hayes was shown a recently invented device. ``That's an amazing invention,'' he said, ``but who would ever want to use one of them?'' He was talking about a telephone. I thought at the time that he might be mistaken.

Clarice

More evidence of the corruption of justice in Wisconsin from the Green Bay Gazette:

"Twenty-nine circuit court judges in Wisconsin were among the hundreds of thousands of people to sign recall petitions against Gov. Scott Walker, according to a Gannett Wisconsin Media analysis. Dane County Judge David Flanagan has drawn the lion's share of the scrutiny after issuing a temporary restraining order March 6 against a Walker-backed voter ID law without disclosing his support of the recall. But the analysis shows he was joined by judges from 15 other counties in signing petitions, including two from Brown County."

Americana Alice (formerly known as AliceH)

Clarice - did the GB Gazette mention the source they analysed? It almost has to be the searchable database developed by VTR/TrueTheVote, don't you think?

Janet

More ugliness from Alec Baldwin. Nothing new.
Inhofe goes to my church.

I am finding the ugliness to conservatives & Christians to be overwhelming lately. They tested the boundaries with Sarah Palin & found out they could do anything they wanted....absolutely anything. :(

Clarice

I would imagine so, AA.

Well we got a flyer on the Friday Noon rally in the bulletin today, an announcement about it from the pulpit( urging folks to attend) and to boot a discussion about the issue in the pastor corner column of weekly bulletin.

Cardinal Dolan is quoted " we did not ask for this fight, but we will not run from it."

DEFEAT THE HHS MANDATE

STAND UP FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

I ask again but only will get back echos, Does that sound like the Church is going to fold?

Jack is Back!

HHS v. Catholic Church and all religions update:

Today in the parish bulletin it was announced that more than 60 cities will have Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rallies on Friday, March 23rd from Noon to 1PM (catch the working Catholic lunch crowd). Our parish is joining others in the diocese and going to the Federal Courthouse in Jacksonville.

I hope to be there and will report on the crowd, speeches and anything else like what I suspect will be counter-protests by the Obama Army of Secular Humanistic Hate. Maybe not in Jax but I'll bet they show up someplace. Bill Press leading the parade based on his recent comments. What a flaccid prick he has turned out to be on this issue and he calls himself a Catholic. Wuss!

Seriously, if you turned off the sound and only got closed captioning, anything out of Press's mouth would sound just like it came from Colmes who I absolutely can not stand to listen to his ramblings...

This was your very best, Clarice. And quite depressing.

Cueball starts softening up the faithful for the inevitable:

“We have a pretty weak incumbent,” said Carville, who helped a scrappy Bill Clinton to an unlikely 1992 election. Citing Obama’s low approval ratings and high unemployment, the advisor noted that the statistics are not on Obama’s side.

Clarice

For once, I hope Cueball is right.

Thanks DoT. I think it's better to be able to see one's foe thru the fog than pretend he's not there.

MarkO

You go, Gmax. Doom is a four letter word.

"From other sources it seems clear to me that the shooter, George Zimmerman, provoked the situation by leaving his car and following the teen."

So, you believe the guy who provoked the incident was the who wound up shooting the unarmed combatant. That's murder. The rest is details.

Jane (get off the couch - come save the country)

It's 70 degrees here and I've been out cleaning the window boxes. Around here March always comes in like a lamb and leaves like a lion but I am so tempted to put my screen doors in.

Jack is Back!

DoT,

Is the movement in Raz because the strongly approve number is rising of the strongly disapprove is lowering? Seems to me that with the gas pricing issue driving a stake in the heart of the economy and disposable income his Raz should be in the high teens low 20's. What has changed?

Captain Hate

I put in a few screens yesterday, Jane, since it's been in the 60s and 70s for about a week; unfortunately it's come with a lot of rain so everything's a big mudhole. Next weekend it's supposed to get back in the 40s.

MarkO if the DOOKIE NCAA faceplant did not put you out on the ledge, why would a miserable incompetent who seems to be wildly unpopular do so?

Walter Russell Mead on freedom by way of school lunch.

“Let’s be clear: if school lunches shouldn’t be settled at the local level, democracy is doomed. If we actually need federal bureaucrats to tell us what to feed our children, the republic is finished and it is time to close up shop. We are so clueless and careless as a nation that the first determined group of barbarians to come along can push us over.”

What did the National Journal poll say Friday? 49% will definitely vote for someone else for President and only 44% said "deserves reelection". In a sample that was that D + 8. PLUS EIGHT!!! Not even close to what 2012 turnout is going to look like.

I cant reconcile that with RAS. But their findings are right in line with what ABC/WSJ and even the notorious CBS/NYT poll was showing. RAS seems to be the odd man out right now.

Ranger thinks he is oversampling college grads.

Something does not compute.

Captain Hate

Hatette #2's high school won their fourth straight state championship yesterday. When my daughter was a junior, the team was pretty bad (but they did extremely well in the country club sports of golf and tennis) and they brought in a coach who'd had championship experience elsewhere. During his first year we had a German student staying with us and for some reason (she was really bad and out of shape) she went out for the team. I attended a meeting the coach had for parents and he sounded like the real deal and was very convincing that he could turn things around. I attended some of the practices and he ran a tight ship; and Janina was badly winded after all of them until she was cut. The first year they were competitive for a change and as you can see, it's been "sky's the limit" from then on out.

Captain Hate

Hmmm, I neglected to say that it was a basketball championship.

Georgetown and iNCeST committing aesthetic felonies against the sport of basketball. And to maximize the suckage, Westwood 1 has sent John Thompson 2 to cover the game.

Santorum, I find incredibly maladroit in discussing issues, now sending an aide, Hogan Gidley, to the two hour hate, referenced earlier, that's another matter,

MarkO,

I understand the DoA has rescinded the "pink slime" incorporation into school lunches. I know MickeyD's has got rid of it in their burgers.

ION's "Democrat Congressional Candidate Arrested for Aggravated Assault". Guess the party:)

narciso

Now the fact that he was Huck's Pac master, and also regretably executive director of the S.C. GOP. probably has something to do with it. I mean how much sense do you need to have not to bring bilingualism in Puerto Rico,

Americana Alice (formerly known as AliceH)

Changes to Fed funding rules for school lunches last year led to our school district having to raise prices. I've never been able to work out the exact algorithm, but it starts with the fed declaring a baseline "lunch price" from which they work out % local out-of-pocket minimum to get any funding -- and that baseline was higher than the actual cost in our region.

That was a really big deal here - and it is definitely going to cost Obama some votes.

narciso

You know it's interesting, that in a normal campaign, Jodi Cantor's piece from which much
of Breitbart's work builds on, would have been
a 'gamechanger' to quote a phrase because it
illuminates exactly what he is about, it takes
Obama seriously, yet it might as well have disappeared with Unperson Comrade Ogilvy, it's still there, but buried under layers of chaff, that is the power of the Ministry of Truth.

Jane (get off the couch - come save the country)

I have developed quite an intense hatred of Santorum.

Me too altho I am trying to keep an open mind. He reminds me of a spoiled child who is both petulant and nasty. I actually think 1. he is over his head and 2. he doesn't have a whit of statesman in him - which reminds me way too much of the current WH resident, except Santorum doesn't hide it as well.

Americana Alice (formerly known as AliceH)

I suppose I should mention that serious efforts were made to try to work out a way to manage without the fed subsidies at all, but there just wasn't enough time or money to make the amount of local budget changes between the new rule announcements in the summer and the start of school year.

Captain Hate

Nina with the water is wet insight that has marked her career. I've never understood why the MFM had it in for Quayle although somebody here may have addressed that before.

MarkO

narc, even likely, although hard to know. But, giving a warning, even to Castro, would be unlikely because it could have changed JFK's plans----unless Castro was in on it.

I'll never tire of JFK assassination conspiracy theories, even though most have been squished by science. (Grassy knoll-other gunmen--you know)

As to Tot's comments, we must remember the base and that we would have a full 60 days to march to unprecedented victory. Sort of like Goldwater (for whom I campaigned door to door).

"Murderous" US soldiers "running amok" in Haditha are mentioned early on. Someone is in need of a himselfing, apparently.

I've never understood why the MFM had it in for Quayle although somebody here may have addressed that before.

Aside from the fact that he was a young, conservative Republican? Who was born and educated in flyover country? He was also vulnerable because he wasn't a glib, smooth talker like Barry.

Captain Hate

Well your last sentence was my point, jimmy; he struck me as somebody they could get flustered at any time. I thought it was pretty unforgivable what the MFM did to him but his inability to push back against it pretty much meant he didn't have the right stuff to take it to those jackal imo.

Mike Giles

"He would shout for help, Brian Macker, if he was unarmed and had a gun pulled on him. He could have been an unarmed burglar who had a gun pulled on him."
I'm confused. Why are so many people here trying to justify the shooting of an unarmed, black kid. Contrary to a popular held belief, there is no "crime" gene and black people don't have it. Sometimes black people are just walking down the street minding their own business, when some paranoid A-hole decide to pull a pull a "Dirty Harry" on them. People should simply be horrified that this tragedy took place, instead they're looking to provide excuses for the shooter. This reminds me of nothing so much as the kid who was walking down the street with a Three Musketeers bar in his hand, and was shot y a US Marshall because the shiny wrapper "looked like a weapon". Nobody ever asked the question of why black = armed, in some people's minds.

BTW, when someone, anyone, shoots an UNARMED black kid, no "race card" is involved in pointing out that's wrong.

Rick Ballard

The last major primaries are on June 5. Governor Romney will have a solid plurality and can spend June, July and August clearly delineating the huge differences between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. A masterful politician should have no problem.

Jane (get off the couch - come save the country)

Mike,

That's a great question. I think this president has done everything he can to pit race against race, and it has trickled down. And I only expect it to get worse. If the shooter isn't tried and convicted I expect Eric Holder will swoop in with some federal charge no one has ever heard of to make sure he goes away foeever. And if roles were reversed I'm pretty sure Holder would pressure the state to not prosecute the shooter. These are the times we live in.

Whereas you seem to believe like the Queen of Hearts: Sentence first! Verdict afterwards. I think people here are only interested the alleged shooter get due process and not be convicted in the media.

BTW, when someone, anyone, shoots an UNARMED black kid, no "race card" is involved in pointing out that's wrong.

What does "black" have to do with it, then? What's wrong is jumping to conclusions simply because the kid was black. No doubt it's a tragedy, but let the investigation take place. Not all tragedies are crimes.

--I'm confused. Why are so many people here trying to justify the shooting of an unarmed, black kid.--

Dan Quayle:

I worked for Quayle both in DC and when he returned to Indianapolis and before moving to Arizona.

When Bush 41 introduced him as his choice for running mate, Dan bounded across the stage. The media decided he acted like it was a highschool pep rally and it was all downhill for him from that moment forward, both in the media and in the Republican party political leadership. IMO, they are the ones who failed him big time.

At the time of his selection, he was one of our experts on nuclear and working with him, I found him to be one of the smartest men I've known. He was (still is I'm sure) a very nice man to boot. He cared deeply about this country.

I don't know how he did it, but I once saw him work a room of about 300 at a political event, meeting and getting the names of each. Then, 2 hours later, standing at the door and saying goodbye and calling every person by name. Maybe others can do this, but I am the world's worst with names and can't remember someone's name 10 minutes after meeting them, so I was blown away as he reeled off hundreds correctly. My husband was assigned as his official driver for a week and he also was highly impressed with Quayle.
