Sources told Fox New that after guard took away his gun, the suspect said, "Don't shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for."

GMax

Did he claim the FRC had stabbed him in the back?

Jane - talk is cheap!

If I were an illegal I would be worried that Obama would use all that info to round them up and deport them - because he never tells the truth.

Well I wouldn't probably believe that, but they might.

Danube of Thought

Post-election columns I most eagerly look forward to reading:

1. E.J. Dionne

2. Michael Tomasky ("The Coming Obama Landslide")

3. Paul Krugman

4. Maureen Dowd

"dude, you are like psychic"

Hardly. A psychic would have known the SkyDragon fight was predicated upon a Gore victory in "00 and read the BDS as based upon the prog Malthusian understanding of the window of opportunity which closed in '08. Had Gore been elected we would be paying our Air Taxes cheerfully, knowing (based upon the very best scientistic information dispensed by the greatest collection of credentialed morons ever assembled, acting with complete consensus) St. Albert had slain the SkyDragon and St. Hillary was continuing the struggle. The Gore loss meant the entire proglodyte dystopian vision had to be rammed down our throats in '09 because it was the last opportunity before seniors began to really supplant the young and ignorant as the driver in the electorate, as they will for the next 16-20 years.

I completely missed the intent behind the Deaniac sale of the Democrat Party to the prog commies in '05, no psychic would have missed that.

--And it was in reference to all those so called pundits who were grousing about the Ryan pick, not about anyone here.--

You may have meant that Sara, but it was not readily apparent by the words you chose.

Danube of Thought

Bob Beckel is a recovering alcoholic (with other issues als well). Is there reason to suspect that a relapse has occurred?

Ignatz

Let me add that is was not readily apparent because you indicated you had many of those 'stab in the back' scars yourself.

I know that I feel more comfortable being represented by someone who's seen [how people live in other countries].

That's the movie star rationale for spurning Romney, who lived in France after he graduated college, and supporting Obama, who spent elementary school living in Indonesia and eating dogs.

She subsequently showcased a cloying video, saying that Sununu had been crass and crude;

John Sununu just called Obama and Biden "losers".

Santita Jackson just called Biden remarks insulting and called for an apology. Where is that reference in the Bible about the lion laying down with the lamb? End times acomin'?

Danube of Thought

What a shame this worm cannot be gibbeted:

"BREAKING NEWS: Police are massing outside the Ecuadorian embassy in London where Australian WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is holed up after seeking political asylum. WikiLeaks tweeted this morning that police in two large vans had arrived 'to surround the Ecuadorian embassy in London’ about midnight, local time. Fairfax Media correspondent Karen Kissane reports from outside the embassy that a police custody van is parked 20 metres from the front door and three Metropolitan Police tactical support group members, normally assigned to public order duties, are at the entrance to the building."

Apparently the Brits claim they have the right to enter the embassy and arrest him.

GMax

Ecuador should ignor them, after all the Brits backed down on the Faulkland Islands when Argentina challenged them. Call their bluff Ecuador, you know you want to do it...

Clarice

Golly, I wonder if this will lead to war and cause a worldwide quinoa shortage?

GMax

Alpacas could end up in short supply, the Brits must back down. Not to mention blankets, where are we going to get blankets. You want to freeze?

Captain Hate

The way the MFM portray James Dobson of Focus on the Family as such an evil boogie man you would think they would know which organization he belonged to. It's almost as if the MFM just throw out names of Christian organizations without really knowing anything about them. Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, Prison Fellowship, Samaritan's Purse...whatever.

Well, they're not intelligent. And very lazy. They think people don't notice.

I hope Marty Peretz writes one for the WSJ. He prepared an excellent skewering of "Reporting for Doody" after the exit polls were shown to be fool's gold; which was based upon his long time loathing of the pompous ass. Marty was a fool for believing the JEF was anything than what he turned out to be, particularly regarding Israel; and I think he'd relish venting his spleen as payback.

Captain Hate

cc, I was unaware of that. Did it take Thurston and Lovey to task for being such boorish parvenus off her dead husband's honestly made money? I'd imagine the Clift Notes could be quite spiteful when "Don't You Know Who I Am" is revealed as a laughingstock.

Narrative wilding.

Yes, Early Bird. I understand why the guilt inherent in blaming industrial man for climate change is so critical to the narrative.

And here they are, the poor fools, with shabbily modeled evidence for Anthropogenic Warming, in the face of a globe that is not warming. Furthermore, a warmer world is clearly a better world, capable of sustaining more total life and more diversity of life. That's three mighty swings and three mighty misses.

There's no joy in Mudville tonight, Mighty Casey has struck out. Yet the charade rolls on into extra innings. The radio announcers are manning the booths and broadcasting the narrative as long as the money rolls in, and it does, as it's other people's.

Captain: It was back in the day when she was writing for Time magazine. Nearly the whole issue was devoted the Kerry loss and how it was all his fault. tee hee.

Instapundit has a lengthy John Kass excerpt on Biden's "y'all back in chains" comment. Loved this part:

Biden took a race card from the deck of Team Obama 2012, and stuck that race card to the tip of his shoe, and then slammed the whole darn thing into his mouth so hard that it must have scraped off half of the vice presidential taste buds.
Captain Hate

Speaking of which, that hellish heat wave and drought around here broke after the announcement for Ryan. Maybe he was the one we were waiting for.

I'm reminded of that Akhil Amar bloke, who said he would judge whether his life work meant anything, by the Obamacare decision,
now they chose a different argument, but I

'No Labels' is the political equivalent of Wind power' it's a mug's game, one of the remaining keeper's of the flame is Pinette, who has discovered the secret ingredient to bringing back the housing market, inflation,

Speaking of that it rained in DFW today. HMMMM, thats better causation than the warmists have got, lets go with Ryan is the One we have been waiting for!

So match that Ryan and I'll accept you over Jan Brewer.

Sorry, Ryan's a piker, just stopping a heat wave. The Wan actually stopped the rising of the oceans, well, slowed the rise. It's a short term effect and probably temporary, but there is a real slowing blip over the last coupla years.

Centralcal, I will vouch for Sara that GMax can be the biggest asshole I've run into in 8 years on the internet. Don't know if you were here during the Libby trial, but there was quite a disgusting argument over the Duke rape hoax. Sara would have done better to ignore him, but she isn't the type to back down, as we all know. If you don't believe me, wait for his reaction to this post.

So you were the one turning on the outside speakers at 2 AM. I should have known from the silliness of your posts.

Captain Hate

Btw has anybody here, I'm thinking narc or ChaCo might be likely suspects, seen "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus"? I was watching a DVD tonight ("An Education"; pretty well done although not particularly surprising) and a trailer for the previously mentioned came on and, before knowing anything about it, thought "That's a Terry Gilliam movie". I'm a big fan of his films and consider that most of them are box office bombs to be a fatal flaw of the movie going public that worships that ugly dumbbell Gorge Lucas.

Anyone seen 2016 yet? I think it gets to my side of town theatres tomorrow.

Well Munchausen, was incomprehensible, but Brazil was overpanned, it is known as the last film that Heath Ledger did, I believe,

I thought Shirley he can't be serious, but
yes he is;

The answer is: we need inflation. Inflation achieves an across-the-board reduction of debt burdens, compounding year over year. Over 4 years, very moderate inflation could reduce the burden of debt by some 15% across the board. There's no need for administrators, adjudicators, panels, or hearings. Combined with state-level programs of relief for the very hardest cases, this seems to me the fastest and most effective solution. It's not perfect justice, but it's better to have less perfect justice that arrives faster.

Agent J, did as Mark stated, made it through Glacier National Park on the "Going to the Sun" road..Used the Saint Marys entrance..

Munchausen was incomprehensible but a visual feast; and very funny. Brazil was breathtakingly good.

The Canuck scourge of the all you can eat buffets knows even less about economics than exercise.

Rick Ballard

Kim,

I'm curious as to how Hansen taught Gore and when the teaching began. It would be exhilarating if Romney arranged for not just Hansen's departure but for the departure of everyone who had contact with him over more than 30 years. I'm surprised he doesn't have his own chapter in the Venona papers. Was there some intent involved in leaving him out?

Clarice

If so it would follow family tradition. Gore Sr was owned by commie Armand Hammer.

Ralph L

Narciso, is that a quote about inflation or your opinion? I don't require blockquotes like some people, but you should be clearer.

narciso

It probably wasn't until around this time period, Gore's mentor was Roger Reveille.


the first GISS (NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies) global temperature analysis was published in 1981. Hansen and his co-author analyzed the surface air temperature at meteorological stations focusing on the years from 1880 to 1985. Temperatures for stations closer together than 1000 kilometers were shown to be highly correlated, especially in the mid-latitudes, providing a way to combine the station data to provided accurate long-term variations. They conclude that global mean temperatures can be determined even though meteorological stations are typically in the Northern hemisphere and confined to continental regions. Warming in the past century was found to be 0.5-0.7 °C, with warming similar in both hemispheres.[13] When the analysis was updated in 1988, the four warmest years on record were all in the 1980s. The two warmest years were 1981 and 1987.[14]

narciso

I don't bgates creativity, to make something like that up, Ralph, in the LUN

Captain Hate

Ralph, that was narc quoting Frum

Clarice

I always assumed that the impetus for Gore on AGW was money.Some very high powered, well connected democrats early on saw the $$$$ benefits from this scam and set the gravy train in motion,

narciso

Or at least he had been, at one point, while at Harvard;


In 1991, Revelle's name appeared as co-author on an article written by physicist S. Fred Singer for the publication Cosmos: A Journal of Emerging Issues, along with another co-author, electrical engineer Chauncey Starr, titled "What to do about greenhouse warming: Look before you leap," which was published in the summer of 1992. The Cosmos article included the statement that:

Drastic, precipitous and, especially, unilateral--steps to delay the putative greenhouse impacts can cost jobs and prosperity and increase the human costs of global poverty, without being effective. Stringent economic controls now would be economically devastating particularly for developing countries...[6]

Captain Hate

Thanks for linking that, narc; the comments got off to a great start with a reference to "the gnome of Princeton". Further hilarity ensued.

Danube of Thought

The most important thing to know about Going to the Sun Road is never traverse it from west to east. That puts you in the lane adjacent to the 3,000-foot sheer drops with no curbs or guardrails for long stretches, including some with many sharp curves.

Did it once in the 12-cylinder Jag with the top down, and opted to go as slow as that beast would permit while hogging the wrong side of the road. The unfortunate head-on collision seemed eminently preferable to a slight error to the right.

GMax

Sounds like the road up to Whistler.

Ralph L

Then who is Pinette?
And who stole Frum's brain?

Danube of Thought

H.L. Mencken suggested that losing presidential candidates should be hanged, in order that their grief not continue to demoralize the young.

The winds of change are blow-ing:

Yesterday afternoon, someone anonymously posted a photo taken from his/her iphone. The photo shows three lines of cocaine “cut” on this mystery employee’s work desk.

Here’s where it gets interesting, really interesting. Someone else logged on to the same site and analyzed the coke photo’s point of origin. This second individual was able to ascertain the location where the photo was snapped since it was taken with an iphone. As you may or may not know, iphones transmit GPS data of where pics are taken when they’re uploaded to the web if the GPS is turned on. You can look at the metadata and see where it came from. It’s a brave new world! Guess what the longitude and latitude turned up?

Rick Ballard

Clarice,

Money, sure, but let's not forget the fully regressive nature of the Air Taxes nor the tremendous power (which would be sold for more money) of the regulatory aspect. The proglodyte filth fully intended to accomplish their leveling objective through a combination of higher air taxes on the productive accompanied by grants to the parasites in exchange for votes.

Getting rid of algebra is damned near mandatory in order to peddle the means side of their nasty little equation.

narciso

It's an admittedly unkind reference to Frum's rather zaftig recent appearance, resembling
the comic whose plight, triggered the little
kerfuffle in th Seinfeld season ender.

Clarice

Sure, my point is the people who pitched it had $$$ in mind. They are very rich and wanted to be even richer. They pitched it to Gore who was receptive because he could see the political benefits and $$$ benefits to himself. He went from someone with only a modest fortune to a fabulously wealthy jackass.

Danube of Thought

Was that an XKE DoT?

rse

On Gore, there was a 1990 conference he attended in the ussr that was tremendously concerning. It read like a breakup strategy meeting.

Clarice-more than money. I know the educators knew by 1985 if they were tied into UNESCO that the search was on for the next approach to the same end. Can't imagine Hammer did not know about the same time.

What became the 1987 Brundtland Our Common Future started from meetings than began about 83.

Gore's pet projects would involve regulating the Geosphere (envmt) and Biosphere (species). He then runs with the Clintons who are taking on the noosphere via her work with Mark Tucker and the Natl Ctr for Ed and the Economy and his as governor involving Global Education with Goodlad who has now come up with the new 3 R's. They came very close.

It really was quite an aspiring ticket in 92.

Ralph-Those speakers were obnoxious. They would shriek across the food court. I wouldn't know how to turn them on but I did enjoy putting Born to Run on the jukebox from time to time.

Beasts of England

Good evening all! Hate that I've been away for a while - been quite busy with work and pleasure, but not really in that order.

Legal advice, please. Older daughter was on her way home and a vehicle starts following her. She makes it into our neighborhood (a walled, gated, and guarded private community, in which we pay for the road maintenance, et cetera - truly private property) and as she is waved in, the car that is following her turns on its blue lights, blows past the guard and pulls her over. Know why? The cop - a precinct captain in an unmarked car - has noticed her university tag and her Tri-Delta sticker. His daughter is going through rush at my daughter's school and wanted to join her sorority. I swear this is true on my Mother's life. He also started chatting her up, i.e., what are you majoring in, do you like your professors... He gave her his business card when he left! WTF?!

My question, before I meet with our mayor and the president of our city council tomorrow is: how bad is this? I am beyond outraged - it's all I can do not to knock on their doors right now and drag their asses out of bed. (Yes, I am personal friends with them both...)

So in all seriousness, how huge of an abuse of power, trespassing, misuse of city property, misuse of city time, false detention, et cetera is this? I want the sumbitch fired at a minimum. And what I really want is to sue the pants off of the PD and the city. I'm minding my language to the best of my ability, but I am pissed beyond any measure.

Thanks in advance...
