narciso,

Among the 'dens of scum and villainy' GQ is possibly the worst, although Vanity Fair is a close second, during the previous campaign they engaged in idolatry of 'the One' even more severe then that wretched ad,

Did you really not understand my comment?

narciso,

In the early part of the Bush administration, they give full voice to that slimy weasel Wilkinson, who it turns out to be a borderline 9/11 denialist,

"It is fun to mock a grief stricken pilot"

No, it is fun to mock a weird birther conspiracy theorist who would have had no interest in the story - and wouldn't have posted about it - if poor Ms. Fuddy hadn't been marginally connected to the Obama birth certificate issue. Posts about her death are intended to fuel speculation that she may have been murdered ("odds of dying in plane crash one in eleven million"). They are otherwise entirely un-newsworthy.

Stephanie

OK, according to Huff Po, the ANNUAL budget for Obamacare advertising is 684 Million per year.

The Savings for cutting Military retirees Cost of Living increase? 6 Billion over 10 years.

Which means the GOP chose to spend money on Obamacare advertising rather than keeping their promises to Vets.

When you devolve into a disingenuous spin, I know your goat has been sacrificed. Let's see more libertarian from you. That's what you claim, amirite?

Stephanie

With all the Duck Dynasty stuff flying off the shelves in Walmart, Macy's, Belks, Academy Sports, Amazon, etc. A&E doesn't realize what shit they just stepped in.

The commenters at the Duck Dynasty link at Drudge get it, A&E not so much.

narciso,

Seriously I have to resort to another language to adequately express the range of invective, maybe I;ll start by yelling 'Kaahn'

In looking through the excemptions Ignatz posted earlier, I see the tax for PajamObamaCare compliance maxes out at 2.5% in 2015. A 28 yr old with a job can pay that easily and save the $6k in premiums for beer or x-box or footsie's whatev.. It's not enough of a burden to shame anybody into doing anything.

I guess the target for the ad is his parent? And if I'm this douche's parent, do I expect him to suddenly stand up and act like an adult? Hardly.

Ignatz

You show me your lucidity and I'll show you my libertarianism.

You're obviously getting the better deal since I've actually got something to show you.

DrJ

OT, but I thought that JiB would appreciate this.

A business colleague of MrsJ's sent her a very large box of Gudrun Chocolate that arrive today. Darned good Belgian chocolate!

The audience needs to be protected from un-newsworthy stories.

The best way to do that is to inject "birther" where it wasn't written.

Memorizing odds of dying in a plane is a new fun hobby.

Want to share? Top of he line pralnes as they call it here. Very Worthy.

In fact, all Belgian chocolate is special compared to the rest. 75% Cocao does that for you.

The LUN gives the gist of it, is it the most diplomatic way of putting it,

I've decided that Obamaboifans have had joy joy thoughts of Dr. Cocteau for ever.

That the residents of SanAngeles all look and behave like pajama boy - I mean who else expects the friendly booth on the corner to spout this kind of crap:

" You are an incredibly sensitive man, who inspires joy-joy feelings in all those around you."

We can now definitively say that pajama boy wants to grow up to be Benjamin Bratt.

And I bet he misuses the 3 sea shells. On Purpose.

Miss Marple

Captain Hate,

Forgive my language, but basically he said he couldn't see why anyone would prefer an anus to a vagina, no contest. And he said it was sin and bad for the country. (That last part is my paraphrase.)

I love that show because it reminds me of my dad, who was a certified redneck who spent his childhood on a ranch in Texas. It's full of hunting and fishing and common-sense comments on life.

A & E is going to be very sorry.

narciso,

LOL, Stephanie, that's about the size of it,

MarkO

Here are some unremarkable snippets:

"Phil calls himself a Bible-thumper, and holy shit, he thumps that Bible hard enough to ring the bell at a county-fair test of strength."

Then, this, for which there is overwhelming support in the country, save the 3% who are gay:

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

Finally just caught up. Out of town mediation Monday in divorce proceedings for one of my daughters (went as well as could be expected but it was very difficult on us emotionally), bad cold and exhaustion yesterday, and recuperation this morning at the keyboard.

Two observations:

The gal who won the lottery bought it in the building at 3500 Lenox Road where I had my office from 2004 - 2009.

Twenty years or so ago, Billy Payne was briefly my law partner and he was an able lawyer. He basically gutted his very good real estate practice to embark on his Don Quixote-like project of bringing the Olympics to Atlanta and his partners subsidized him briefly until the Olympics project became self-sustaining. No one thought he had a chance, including me and his other partners. IMO, without him, Atlanta would have gotten nowhere with the IOC.

He took over Augusta from his somewhat sclerotic and hide-bound predecessor during a somewhat troublesome time, and from all I hear has managed to steer it out of some major turbulence pretty much intact.

I have no problems with his becoming rich in the process. He has been very generous to his church which is a few miles from my house.


Captain Hate

So he was guilty of not having an approved opinion. Yeah I'm pretty sure A&E will regret this.

Threadkiller

But you still read it.

Stephanie

What did the guy say in the interview? I'm a non cable guy who's never seen an episode.

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me,” Robertson told the magazine. “I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

When the reporter asked Robertson what he found sinful, he said “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”
The self-proclaimed Bible-thumper then went on to paraphrase Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

The original story that Drudge linked had also that Robertson said that he loves all mankind and that it wasn't up to him to judge that it was God's calling and that he can love a sinner and hate the sin.

Evidently according to GLAAD, he isn't a 'true' Christian - like they have the moral authority of the world to declare who is and isn't a 'true' Christian.

This was their statement:

“Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil’s lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe,” said GLAAD spokesperson Wilson Cruz. “He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans — and Americans — who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples.

“Phil’s decision to push vile and extreme stereotypes is a stain on A&E and his sponsors who now need to reexamine their ties to someone with such public disdain for LGBT people and families.”

Phil's statement tonight (after A&E punted with a no comment):

“I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior,” he said. “My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together.

“However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”

The A&E guys just stepped in it. Big Time.

Don't say I didn't warn you

OMG Stephanie.

Back in 1979, when we were all mired in the Carter Slough of Despair, an unlikely event galvanized the country, reminded them of patriotism and wanting to be winners, and led to the election of Ronald Reagan.

That event was the victory of the United States Hockey Team over the Russians at the Winter Olympics at Lake Placid.

What you had in that incidence was a nationally televised program with people who were seen as heroes defeating evildoers.

Now Duck Dynasty is watched by millions, their merchandise flies off the shelves of Wal-Mart and other retailers, and they are THE most popular cable show.

This has the potential of galvanizing America the same way the Hockey Team did over 30 years ago.

I will bet there are networks calling meetings right now to get the show on their stations. And A & E is going to be very sorry.

Stephanie

I see Walmart waffling and then following A&E and a big backlash by rednecks... you don't fool with the redneck demographic. And gays don't shop at Walmart.

New poll from Iowa by Quinny, remember Harkin has decided to spend more time with family:

Forty-six percent of Iowans want to see Republicans take the Senate, compared to 41 percent who don’t. Independents favored a Republican-controlled Senate 41–34.

Still trying to figure out what lie Phil told about an entire community.

Do gay guys really prefer vaginas?
Seems a remote contingency.

"Memorizing odds of dying in a plane is a new fun hobby."

I wouldn't have known those odds if you hadn't posted them. (Why did you do so, if not to suggest that there was something suspicious about her death? And if she weren't a player in your ridiculous birther fantasies, why would the story interest you at all?)

For the benefit of the many here at JOM whom I consider friends, and who have chastized me for engaging with this man, I will not do so further on this thread. I think his bizarre obsession is pretty well exposed, and his mawkish self-pity is demoralizing.

Stephanie

BTW they showed some of the DD guys on their Christmas special last week pre-beard. Some of them were quite hot.

And yes we are hooked on the show. As is almost everyone I know (my parents being the sole exception). Even at the country club everyone watches DD.

Got the hubs his annual 'gag' Christmas gift at the DD site on Amazon, too. Phil on a t-shirt saying "I am not a YUPPIE." He might should frame it now as opposed to wear it.

The comments at Variety are inspiring:

Funny that a network whose motto is “Be Original” fires an individual for “Being Original”.

New suggestions for A&E’s tagline……

“Be Original……..just not politically incorrect”
“Be Original…….unless it makes GLADD unhappy”

Duck Dynasty, hyuck.

They remind me of Little Bill's words to English Bob's biographer, as the pee-stained nerd attempts to correct Bill when he refers to Bob, in Unforgiven;

Biographer; ''Uh, it's Duke...you said Duck."

Bill; "Duck, I says........"

“Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil’s lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe,” said GLAAD spokesperson Wilson Cruz.

Maybe a reporter could ask Wilson Cruz what true Christians believe.
Or they could invite Dan Savage & his friends on to laugh about raping Michele Bachmann & Rick Santorum...it was such a hoot when they did it on Maher's show.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

It's even weird & pretty sad really that so many would be shocked & not know that the Bible teaches that ANY sex outside of marriage is a sin.
Have they ever read what was on those 10 Commandment displays that they work so hard at banning?

The whole point of Christianity is that we are ALL sinners & separated from our Holy Creator God.
The 10 Commandments are the standard....so what happens if we sin?...and we all do.

The Good News is that Jesus came to pay the penalty for all our sins. That is what Christmas is all about for heaven's sake.

Judging by the remains, circenses, arenas and stadia have been infrastructure projects for some time. There is some reason to suspect their construction had a strong political aspect from the very beginning.

Changing the subject almost entirely -- the Capitol One commercials, with and without Baldwin, strike me as moderately amusing -- and strong arguments for almost everyone to avoid the card. (I've never checked the arithmetic, since I prefer to avoid buying on credit.)
