Are Pirates Jomers getting excited yet?

With a Pirates-Red Sox World Series, I might start watching the entire World Series games again and step up to being bleary-eyed in the morning. I know, Sue, you think the Pirates will be battling the Rangers.

Re A-Rod: Yaaawwwnnnn.

NK

Here's a little story that highlights the distinction between 'Red' and 'Blue' American culture. Blue culture is the kids who are working for Weiner in the hopes of using Huma to latch on to Hildabeast, and the filthy foulmouthed "slutbag' response when one of them speaks out about what goes on. 'Red' culture, is a like aged USMC Lance Corporal helping a 9yo boy finish a 5K race in 35 mins or so. Quite the accomplishment for that little boy, with the help of a 19yo. Compare and contrast: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2382356/Marine-Myles-Kerr-slowed-help-year-old-boy-finish-5k-race-goes-viral.html

ThomasC-- I'd sign up for a Buc-Os - Saux series right now, and I'd watch every game. Pirate fans deserve this team, they've waited 20 years for success like this.

jimmyk

Sorry Red Sox fans, but it will be a replay of 1909: Tigers-Pirates. Hopefully with a different outcome.

NK

Tigers - Pirates would be equally great IMO, and I'd watch that too. On current form though, the Rays are the class of the AL.

Walter,

I see my friend is at the Bluff House Resort and Marina. Also published an overhead shot of Harbour Island.

You still there?

Jack,try the Stonewall Kitchen dessert toppings. Good stuff!

Marlene,

Mrs. JiB wants to try the lemon curd:)

It appears the two strongest divisions are the AL East and the NL Central. Even Cincy has an 85 POFF. But we have the two hardest months of Baseball to go. Anything can happen - ask Yadier Molina. Whoever can keep their pitching staff in-tact has the best chance. I'd love to see the Rays play the Reds. We could call it the I-75 series:)

The Wiener intern reveals her motive for becoming one; she wants a career in porn

Shades of the Zimmerman juror who wanted a book deal.

As a Yankee fan, I'm hoping A-Rod gets the lifetime ban. First of all, that means he goes away. Second, he doesn't get his money.

I call that a win-win for my beloved Yankees.

James D.

Totally OT (can you be OT in an open thread?) - I'm up to 700 books sold as of this morning.

A lot of them were at $0.99, and I've spent (quite a bit) more than I've made so far, but still I'm thrilled. AND, I've got a second audiobook in production, and a fifth book in the series coming out this month, too.

NK

James D we all love you. But I've made no secret that I've detested the Yankees with a mighty passion for nearly 50 years. I respectfully suggest that you 'beloved Yankee" fans do need to own up to the fact that Cashman & Co have run a drug factory there since 1995. PEDs are a stain on baseball, and the Yankees did far more than their share of the soiling.

stonefish

"And the war on women continues..."

As long as there are Saints with a past and sinners with a future.

Thomas Collins

Bucs-O's would be fine. I always thought Dan Duquette didn't get enough credit for his player personnel moves with the Red Sox. With Bucs-Tigers, depending how long Peralta's suspension for juicing lasts, Jose Iglesias could be the starting SS on a WS team.

James D.

NK, I'll grant you that they've had their share of juicers, but I think it's debatable that they're so much worse than other teams on that front.

NK

The Yankee cheater list is long, and involves key players who were big parts of WS teams (ARoid, Giambi Pettite, CLEMENS, and on and on). A dark stain.

Ignatz,

How long will it take Hilary to file an infringement claim regarding her patented Nutznslutz process? Faster than her attack on Huma for using her enabler schtick?

How do Filner/Weiner/Spitzer stack up against a real degenerate like Rapist in Chief Clinton? Do any of them come close? Has any political wife whored herself more than Hilary Clinton?

I'd like to see NAG polling on the subject.

narciso

The Razorback Borgias win the prize Rick, it's a toss up whether he is Cesare or Alexander, he's more in the latter category.

James D.

OK, I know I'm picking nits here, and going into defensive mode, but...

Only Pettitte was with the Yankees for all of the height of their success (1996-2001). Clemens was only there for part of the time. Giambi and Arod came later.

And frankly, they could have done without Giambi, and they probably would have won in 1999 and 2000 without Clemens.

Wow. This story is just so disturbing on so many levels:

It was a confluence of magnificent proportions that led six agents from the joint terrorism task force to knock on my door Wednesday morning. Little did we know our seemingly innocent, if curious to a fault, Googling of certain things was creating a perfect storm of terrorism profiling. Because somewhere out there, someone was watching. Someone whose job it is to piece together the things people do on the internet raised the red flag when they saw our search history.

Most of it was innocent enough. I had researched pressure cookers. My husband was looking for a backpack. And maybe in another time those two things together would have seemed innocuous, but we are in “these times” now.

pressure cookers, backpacks and quinoa, oh my!

NK

ARoid won the 2009 WS for the Yanks, Clemens/Pettite were over 40% of Yanks 1999/2000 starting pitching-- kiss those WS goodbye as well. That's 3 forever tainted WS. That's a big deal that requires reflection about this lunatic (strumpet pounding/building jumping) Cashman and his crew.

Captain Hate

At some point McRINO will get very envious of all the press Fat Boy is taking away from his war on conservatives.

Do Liberals, aka, Socialists know that energy sources like wind, sun and water were already used, discarded and deemed inadequate, inefficient, obsolete and relatively impractical more than a hundred years ago?

If not, why would you expect them to question the Greenie Socialists' disingenuous assertion that those same already obsolete energy sources are going to propel us into the next century?
It is a cinch that Obama, Clinton, Holder and Biden are too ignorant to know it. They don't even know that plastics are petroleum-based products.

Nick-

I read a sales pitch yesterday that talked about moving away from 17th century energy to Green Energy. Nobody thinks through the meaning of words. What is more 17th century than wind and water and sun but no one thinks beyond the sound byte?

I just got a transcript of Jeb's appearance on Hugh Hewitt. He needs better info from his staff because I have hard copy refutation of virtually everything he was saying. The foundations have already begun to compile the real story and I have it and so many on the Right are listening or deferring to people who are just accepting what they have been told. I guess it would get in the way of too much trough munching but honestly. People of good will need to do their homework better.

JIB

CC,

I was going to comment that your link is the most disturbing story I have heard yet. [Well, we did have something similar happen here to one of our esteemed members].

Sort of hard to believe it is so damn scary. I think the guy did the right thing even though I wouldn't put anything past this regime including planting evidence of wrong doing.

I think someone posted a video/documentary here about a company and owner in Arkansas (IIRC) that got harassed by a gang of Federal agents over some cooked up kind of charge. Don't know who posted it but it was cringe worth.

Funny, how they can track down a pressure cooker search but can't find the perps who did Benghazi or who ordered the IRS to kill off the T-Party. Obama/'s brown shirts.

narciso

Of course, they know how would they know who to promote otherwise.

I'm not sure if the guy in cc's link did the right thing or not. The usual advice is not to talk to police, certainly not let them into your home without a warrant. In. This case it worked out ok, and maybe you don't want to behave suspiciously or annoy six men with guns.

The bigger picture is that our security seems very good at fighting the last battle, not so good at anticipating the next one.

centralcal - The story you linked is amazing on several counts, if it is true.

Most telling of all, it shows that the story we have been given about how the datamining data will be used by law enforcement is just a big lie.

We have been told - by a parade of DHS, FBI and various other anti-terrorism experts, along with the heads of various congressional committees - that the data they are collecting is merely stored away, pending a warrant for its use.

The Powers That Be have assured Congress that they only retrieve information from the datamined repository once they have identified a person of interest, or a criminal suspect. They assured all of us that they then seek a warrant from the FISA court before accessing *any* of the data.

Yet the linked story, if true, indicates that the NSA and the FBI/DHS is compiling various pieces of information that should NOT be accessed to create a potential suspect. A suspect for whom they have not obtained a search warrant, despite their assurances to apply for a warrant whenever possible.

The story is simply chilling.

Some updates to CC's 11:51 pressure cooker/backpack search story:

Addendum 1: In a Twitter discussion, tech policy reporter (and libertarian) Declan McCullagh suggests that the visit may not have been a result of the couple's Google history. Tweets McCullagh: "Tip from nosy neighbors is likely source, or IP datadump from http://buypressurecookers.com."

Addendum 2: After getting some pushback to her story (which she stands by) Catalono tweeted that she won't be giving any interviews to other media outlets.

"Yet the linked story, if true, indicates that the NSA and the FBI/DHS is compiling various pieces of information that should NOT be accessed to create a potential suspect. A suspect for whom they have not obtained a search warrant, despite their assurances to apply for a warrant whenever possible."

And you were surprised to hear how extensive it was?

It's standard operating procedure for DEA and other Federal agencies to create snitches from their catch. Entrapment is supposedly illegal for law enforcement, but if the CI does it, no problem. They (law enforcement) and privatized prisons adore this because of interdiction and asset disgorging to fund their continuous and lazy methodology. Cue the surprise.

You're right, cc. It's hard to keep all the low-life stories straight.

James D.

The Henninger piece is great.

It's all of a piece, and a big part of the problem is that the GOP leadership really doesn't seem to have all that much problem with Zero's usurpation of power.

They have no problem with the idea of most of us being serfs whose role is to pay taxes, cower on our knees when anyone in authority demands it of us, and shut the hell up the rest of the time.

And the few who do have a problem with it (Palin in 2008, the Tea Party in 2010, Cruz now) are trashed by the "Top Men".

As far as I'm concerned, even if you put aside everything else Zero and his administration has done - the lies, the class warfare, Obamacare, ignoring judges, Fast & Furious, the IRS targeting, stoking racial hatred, Benghazi, the Libya "kinetic humanitarian action" in general, etc...

The moment he declared that he had the unilateral authority to designate American citizens as imminent threats and order their execution - on his judgment alone, with no process of any kind (due or otherwise), with no oversight, for any reason (or none) at all, that should have been the end of ANY cooperation or deference from the Republicans at every level of government. End of conversation.

He claimed for himself the power of a Roman Emperor - to give thumbs up or down like Joaquin Phoenix in "Gladiator". And the Republicans, for the most part, didn't give a damn. They certainly didn't use the power they do have in any meaningful way.

Forget the Dems - they've sold their souls (those of them who had souls to begin with, anyway). At this point, I think most Dem voters, if Obama walked into their house and murdered their loved ones with his bare hands then urinated on the corpses, would thank him for the honor of his visit and ask if he wanted a drink to take with him on the road when he left.

But the Reps are, at least supposedly, the opposition party. And they DO control one house of Congress and 45 Senate seats, and a majority of governorships. They could mount an effective opposition if they so chose. They just, for the most part, don't want to.

"People of good will need to do their homework better."

RSE,

Doesn't that apply too heavy a discount to the Northeastern indoctrination Prescott's grandson received from infancy? "What do you know about John Dewey's philosophy of education?" would be a good start to an interview regarding Commie Core and I doubt the ability of any Bush to formulate an answer tracking the totalitarian arc back to its Jacobin roots.

JEB doesn't need better staff homework. I'm unaware of any fix for the type of formatting problem he exhibits. Perhaps the solution is to just discard the disc.

I'm torn between "don't want to" and "don't know how to". Take Issa, for example; he seems to be a good man but he just holds endless hearings on matters which are obviously important but aren't going anywhere. The MFM won't cover them so the LIVs don't know a damn thing about them, not that they'd necessarily care a lot. But at some point he has to ask himself "what good is this doing" and figure out that he needs a special prosecutor; to which the chinless skidmark would say "no we don't" but at least force him to say that and take it from there.

REQUEST FOR HELP. (Part 1/3)

PART ONE: Background.

Some of you are aware that the young Iraqi woman who served as my cultural interpreter & translator while I was in Iraq, was later sponsored by me during her immigration to America. While I was still in Iraq, this young (well, 30 year old) Iraqi came to the States, living with my wife and younger daughter, while beginning her assimilation into this great melting pot. Today she serves in the Unites States Army, beginning her sixth year of uniformed service in her adopted home, while pursuing a doctorate at night on the GI Bill. Exciting and inspirational stuff, of which I am very proud to have played a small part.

Great news, Sandy Daze,

Dr. Weevil

Two comments on Captain Hate's 12:13pm link about the Teamster picketing and disrupting funerals:

1. How cool is it that the head thug is named John T. Coli? Do you think his friends call him "'E' Coli"?

2. How stupid do you have to be to do this: "'We will be here for the visitation; we will be here for your funeral,' Teamster driver Lester Plewa allegedly shouted into a bullhorn as a funeral director met with a dying man planning his arrangements with family members." If you really piss off a man who's already dying and has nothing to lose, there's always a chance he might just decide to go out in style and make the world a better place by taking you and some of your filthy friends with him.

Captain Hate

Dr Weevil, when did the Teamsters join the Westboro Baptist Church? Or do I have the order reversed?

Sandy Daze

REQUEST FOR HELP. (Part 2/3)

PART Two: Current Situation.

Recently I was asked to endorse an another application for a Special Immigrant Visa by another Iraqi.  I am particular about those I will endorse for Visas, taking great care to ensure those I endorse, are worthy.   This Iraqi is a mature man with a family, his wife and two boys in their early 20s.  He was educated as a veterinarian in the U.K.  He's a fine man who has supported American interests in Iraq from the very earliest days of the entry, being assigned to both the 354th and 478th Civil Affairs Brigades, providing interpreter/translator support to Public Health Teams (medical, veterinary and agricultural documents; meetings) and in assisting implementing strategic planning for Iraqi veterinary services to develop food safety and public health programs in Iraq. 
(It is his service with America and education in the UK, which has in part, marked him by inimical Iraqi elements.)

His completed application package is now under review by the Special Immigrant Visa team.  If all goes well, he should hear back not later than 90 days (+/-) on approval.  (If disapproved, this is a moot discussion.)

Captain Hate

Kudos Sandy, to all involved. That's the best story I've heard all day. By far.

Dr. Weevil

Sorry, "Teamster picketing" should be "Teamsters": there's a bunch of them acting vilely, including laughing at a child's funeral. (I personally found that story even more rage-inducing than the pressure cooker story.)

And here's another point:

3. How many people can there be in Chicago named "Lester Plewa"? And how hard would it be to put his (no doubt) ugly mug all over the web so all his non-Teamster friends (assuming he has any) will be ashamed to be seen with him? The same applies to the two New York City cops who stood by while a man was slashed to pieces. We know their names: why don't we all know their faces as "Cowards of the Week"?

"if the CI does it, no problem"

Actually, there is a problem if the CI acts at the behest of the police. And entrapment isn't illegal, it simply affords the perp a defense.

NK,

From your link -

The uptick in gun sales comes even as some surveys show an overall drop in the number of gun owners. In 2012, about 34% of a sample of U.S. residents reported having a firearm in their home, down from 45% in 1990, according to a survey conducted by the NORC research center at the University of Chicago. Gallup polls shows a smaller decline, with 43% of Americans saying they had a gun at home in December 2012, down from 47% in 1990.

That's very unintentionally hilarious. It appears I am far from the only citizen to appear to have lost all my firearms in tragic kayak accidents occurring in deep water.

REQUEST FOR HELP. (Part 3/3)

PART Three: Request.

In anticipation of approval, I am making preliminary inquiries among friends and associates (JoMo tribe included) regarding any resources or connections you might have which would assist this man and his family in transition/assimilation to America.  While I doubt his arrival in America will see him and his family settling into one of the immigrant enclaves, I also know that even just a little assistance in the transition can be the difference between success and failure in assimilation.  In my observation, Iraqi immigrants are not seeking a handout, but rather a hand-shake.

So, while I explore with him the level of expectation and ideal concepts, I ask you folks now that if your community, faith group/church, or civic group, etc has an existing program or interest in assisting immigrants, that you let me know so that I can make that connection.

Thank you in advance for  your consideration.

~~

Recently, the WaPo published an article on the various Iraqis who assisted as drivers/interpreters/translators who had immigrated to America.  Please read the article online: At great risk, they helped The Post cover Iraq. Now, they’re remaking their lives in America. Interesting how their lives have evolved in America. 

Thank you in advance for any consideration and assistance.

Vires et Honestas.

Take good care,

Not to jinx it, but has T***p** been a little better behaved lately? It never gave me much trouble (just a very occasional disappearing post), but I haven't seen so many complaints. I even was able to use blockquote earlier, which was a problem not too long ago.

RickB-- the Gallup survey seems right to me. a marginal drop in firearms ownership (47% to 43%) as NE suburban weenies such as myself ( and our dear host) use field hockey sticks for self-defense rather than the .223 rifle that's used for weekend hunting - as prior NE generations did.

Sandy Daze

narc, Cap'n, thnx, but the heavy lifting was with my wife and younger daughter who bore the brunt of our Iraqi guest's nervousness during her initial months of transition (she lived with us, well, wife and daughter, for seven months). She was unsurprisingly intimidated by the openness of America, also homesick for her family and somewhat unsure of, well, everything.

Biggest stress factors, we are told, are birth, death, marriage, divorce, job change, moving to a new area, etc.

The Iraqi woman was *required* by her mother to get married to an Iraqi man before her mother (father had died of natural causes several years earlier), before her mother would bestow permission to come to America. She married, then within a couple weeks flew to America unaccompanied.

Very moving. My company lost 28 people during reconstruction. We had to leave. The lack of security was putting too many of our Iraqi personnel at risk. I think we have brought over a dozen or so of the better engineers we employed there. You are doing the Lord's work and you shall be rewarded.

IMO, no modern Democrat is ever deterred by the possibility of violating any law of God not man. I just don't think they care.

In addition to those two links, one needs to add in the IRS targeting the Tea Party/Conservatives and it is easy to see that US governments are totally out of control.

Charleston businesswoman Nancy Mace will head to Goose Creek Saturday to announce her Senate campaign, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

“This isn’t about one senator,” Mace told TheDCNF. “The only way to change Washington is to change who we send to Washington.”

“Washington is out of touch,” she added. “Voters are frustrated. They’re looking for someone authentic.”
