I agree with all that. I make no excuses for these people, they pretty much only know their ancient faith, the tyranny of sharia and the corrupt civil authorities they have to payoff to keep the jihadis away. My nub is that they have a pitiful lot in life and they are at risk of extinction, so yes I give them a lot more slack than people like us who have a much safer and comfortable life. I appreciate their circumstances without condoning their insular bigotries.

Snark from Shep, angrily reacting to the legitimate criticism of the Dem's occurring today:

Remember, uh, we'll be treated as Liberators, the war won't last long, it won't cost much, we'll be right out of there, remember that? ha ha ha.

Very creepy, very snarky leer and laugh. But not unexpected.

Sue

So once again NK, were they booing because he was lecturing them or because they are bigots? You are turning yourself into a pretzel defending them and attacking Cruz.

In order to have sounded like guys dropping a drawer full of silverware, there would have had to have been at least one percussionist. The closest thing I have in my collection is: http://www.amazon.com/Sign-Four-Pat-Metheny/dp/tracks/B00000209E/ref=dp_tracks_all_1#disc_1/?tag=digitalca0daa06-20

I've never gotten all the way through a disc in one sitting.

Maybe you should ask her for a date, and take her to Five Guys...

--Kiera Knightly needs to eat a cheeseburger. Just sayin'...--

According to Gary Taubes she should just eat the bun; the rest of it will make her even skinnier.

On the job of being president, Obama is uneducable.

If the Obama Era has shown more than anything else is that “government by academic experts” is probably the worst form of government …

The Germans sought more time and consultation with other EU member states, frustrating [National Security Advisor Susan] Rice to the point that she lost her cool and reportedly launched into a profanity-filled lecture that featured a rare diplomatic appearance of the word “motherf*cker.” Germany’s national security advisor, Christoph Heusgen, was so angered that he told an American confidante it was the worst meeting of his professional life.

Just for a moment, I thought that might be Ray Rice instead of Susan Rice.

Speaking of eating, has anyone ingested cuisine in the manner noted below?

TC, or maybe one of the less expensive places.

Perhaps the feminists wouldn't have been mad if the lady were wearing a three piece suit instead of, . . . well, . . . HERSELF, Ignatz!

As to Knightly and cheeseburgers and Upton and buns, well, I could only get into trouble with buns talk in the context of discussing Knightly and Upton.

NK

Sue-- why the boos? don't know for a fact as I wasn't there. as I give Cruz the benefit of the doubt that he did not mean to be deliberately provacative, I give the small minority of the guests the benefit of assuming that they booing what they viewed as an arrogant lecture, not expressing bigotry.

NK

Dave-- don't ....just..... don't ever do that again.

Thomas Collins

Dave (in MA), I thought daddy had locked up the JOM 2014 Grossest Pic Link of the Year with that pic of the lady a couple of months back, but now I have to rethink it!

Sue

The same people who booed refused to sit in on a panel where Assad was going to be criticized. I'm pretty sure the boos had nothing to do with being lectured.

Miss Marple

A point about Middle East Christianity: it is dangerous for Christians to be seen as possible spies for Israel.

The people who were at that conference were bishops and patriarchs, as well as secular leaders.

To come in and ask them to applaud Israel, endangering their people who are not in Washington, DC but are living in the region of nut case Muslims, is perhaps being a little insensitive.

It is the responsibility of a bishop to protect his flock. Placing them at risk through inflammatory statements is probably a poor idea, since they have very few ways to defend themselves.

It's quite admirable to sign up for martyrdom. It is not admirable to sign OTHERS up for martyrdom.

YWCA spokeswoman Chantelle Krish, who co-chairs the centre’s task force against hyper-sexualization, said serving sushi on a nude female body objectifies women.

“Degrading is an understatement,” said Krish. “You are literally using a woman’s body as prop.”

Although the models voluntarily offer their bodies, Krish said the service still sends a message to both men and women that the female body is something to be used as a sexual object.

A dinner plate is a sexual object? Hmmm....

“It does kind of make us all take a metaphorical step backwards,” she said.

Related to TM's recent posts on scientists fiddling with the brains of Mice, I find this story fascinating:

Woman of 24 found to have no cerebellum in her brain

A woman has reached the age of 24 without anyone realising she was missing a large part of her brain. The case highlights just how adaptable the organ is.

...She told doctors she'd had problems walking steadily for most of her life, and her mother reported that she hadn't walked until she was 7 and that her speech only became intelligible at the age of 6.

Doctors did a CAT scan and immediately identified the source of the problem – her entire cerebellum was missing (see scan, below left).

That made me pull out my old Neurobiologist Terrence Deacon's book on Brain Evolution The Symbolic Species: The Co-evolution of Language, just to refresh myself on his ideas of how the brain essentially wires itself during early development, by sending out zillions of axons to generalized locations, and those that make functional synapse connections of responsive value do not get culled in later processes, and thus become the infrastructure mechanisms by which the brain and the senses and the body are interlinked thru life.

After many pages of particulars, he wraps it up this way:

Evolution is thus provided with a power tool for adaptive flexibility. The brain does not have to be redesigned every time that the body is restructured. The eyes can converge or diverge, the olfactory apparatus can shrink or expand, limbs can be reduced to vestigial proportions or radically restructured for different forms of locomotion, or tactile receptors can be concentrated into the tips of sensitive digits or tails over the course of phylogeny, and the very same neural development can produce a brain that is appropriate.

Don't know if he's correct, but I find his ideas fascinating, and I guess in the case of this girl surviving with no cerebellum, plausible.

Apologies for so much time wasted on tits and brains today. Time to start catch-up:)

Yesterday I caught part of the Laura Ingraham radio Show and her guest for a bit was former RNC Head Michael Steele.

When they got to Immigration they had a disagreement. Steele is for Immigration Reform policy (ala Larry Kudlow), whereas Laura Ingraham is against any Immigration.

Steele said that the current Administration was deporting more people from the States than ever before and Laura said that was crazy they are not. They went back and forth and he said he had seen the numbers and she said it was phony numbers in that they are now counting deportations as stops at the border.

Whatever the truth, I find this new story posted by the AP to be believable, as they generally support the Left: DEPORTATIONS DOWN 20 PERCENT, FEWEST SINCE 2007

As of early September, only 319 of more than 59,000 immigrants who were caught traveling with their families have been returned to Central America.

I think that tells me Ingraham is correct and Steele believes in unicorns.

lyle

Dammit. I posted that human sushi link yesterday or the day before! What am I, a tuna roll, here?

There will be story soon about Steele missing his cerebellum too...

From that FP article at the Horde: "It is hard to think of a recent president who has grown so little in office."

It should have read: "It is hard to think of a recent president who has shrunk so much in office".

There's gotta' be a way to tie this to Obama and voter ID:

Authorities in India are investigating how Hanuman, the monkey god, has been issued a biometric identity card.

JOMer's will recall that Obama carries an amulet of the Monkey God in his pocket:

According to Obama he was introduced to Lord Hanuman by his step father Lolo as stated in his autobiography, “There standing astride the road was a towering giant at least ten stories tall with the body of a man and the face of an ape. That’s Hanuman, Lolo said as we circled the statue, the monkey-god. I turned around in my seat, mesmerized by the solitary figure, so dark against the sun, poised to leap into the sky as puny traffic swirled around its feet. He’s a great warrior,” Lolo said firmly, “strong as a hundred men. When he fights the demons, he’s never defeated.”

Dave (in MA)


Instalanche.

Imagine what the first timers will think if they wade into this?

lyle

[snuffle] Thanks, TC. I don't even like sushi. My comment when I linked hinted at all the tasteless jokes one could riff on with raw fish...;)

Hey Some Guy @2:36, if you're still around, I think you may have misunderstood NK's remark, which itself was a misunderstanding of your comment. Of course, I may be misunderstanding everything myself.

Hopefully Dr. Weevil shows up to set the first timers straight, Dave.

Time to ruffle through the birther file and see if I have a link that will kick this party up a notch...

Someone be sure and give any Instalanche newbies the JOM glossary and stylebook. Esperanto is easier to follow than the argot round these parts.

Yes daddy....Obama was around 6 yrs. old when that happened.

another excerpt from just before the Hanuman sighting -

"When my mother sat me down one day to tell me that Lolo had proposed and wanted us to move with him to a faraway place, I wasn't surprised and expressed no objections. I did ask her if she loved him--I had been around long enough to know such things were important."

6 years old.

His mom wanted his opinion on punishing him with a daddy, Janet

Those book quotes are so phony baloney. The more I see them, the more I am convinced the whole thing is a fiction concocted by Bill Ayers.

Miss Marple

Janet,

Apparently he didn't have friends as a normal kid would have said, "Can Tommy come visit?"

A normal kid would have asked about the house, or the school, or how far away, etc.

No, Obama makes up his own reality and shows solicitude to his mother's emotional needs.

I don't believe a word of it.

Ingraham vs Steele?

Not a fair fight.

Jim Eagle

daddy,

He is so full of shit I can't stand it.

Lord Hanuman is known as Dirgantara in Indonesia. Its statue is actually a long curved slemder pedestal with the figure on its curved crescent arm. When I was in Jakarta there was a small MIG fighter on his finger.

Another clue toward Ayers who never lived or visited Indonesia.

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

Hahahaaa...I bet almost nobody in the MFM read that d@#! book.
I have articles tucked in my copy & I've penciled in Obama's approx. age in some parts.

one note says "remember- conversations are made up by Ayers."

Heard on the radio that the 7th Circuit panel on Voter ID was 3 R appointees. They were skeptical of the ACLU lawyer. Something link able might show up later.

Naturally the lefties in Madison are going to sue (and stop*) Voter ID because the "free ID + we'll find your birth certificate for you at no charge" component takes 48 hours -- too long for the bus from IL to sit in the parking lot or something.

*Plenty of prog judges around here.

rich@gmu

Neo-

think I'll add DOOM!!! to that.

Don't know what is more scary our national security advisor losing her cool with the Germans or that our national security advisor is Susan Rice.

3 DOOMS!!! actually.

maybe narciso can look this up (WaPo late 90's) but I vaguely recall it was her that coined the Clinton administration policy in Iraq as "deconflictulization" (or something similarly made up).

Royalty?

After her divorce she married Lolo Soetoro, who was a royal from Central Java. They had a daughter, Maya. Barack and Maya were raised in a traditional royal environment in Jog-jakarta.

Nice.

Wow, the radio was correct! 7th Circuit rules WI can use Voter ID in Nov election.

Sadly I expect a prog Judge to kill it again by Tuesday.

congrats to henry and the great state of wisconsin.

GMax

I will be proven wrong I guess, but given the Wisconsin Supreme Court has already ruled on this and now the federal court and the federal appellate court have ruled, AND the US Supreme Court has ruled previously on the Indiana voter ID law, what is possibly left to litigate over?

Why wouldn't an immediate injunction be granted by a State or Federal appellate court if some prog judge decides to ignor the higher courts rulings?

Sue

Reports are saying Peterson was indicted for using a flexible rod to discipline his 11 year old son.

henry

GMax, the lefties (ACLU, SEIU, etc) argue that waiting 48 hours is too great a burden for a Constitutional right (5 day waiting period for handguns is too fast though), and finding a DMV center is too hard. They like voting to be like the border, unpoliced. As Russ Feingold put it after Act10 passed, "it isn't over until we win." Loyalty to prog trumps the Constitution for many of these judges.

Sue

Some reports are saying it was a tree branch or switch as my mother and grandmother called them. They even made us cut our own switch that they used on us.

Jim Eagle

henry,

Do you elect jusges also like here in Florida? I have always had a problem with electing judges but what are the more neutral alternatives?

IIRC, that's about the same number of registered voters in NC over 100 y.o.

Shoot. I was wrong. 2,214 voters over the age of 110.


AliceH

Okay -I think I've got pieced it together.

The statue is of Hanuman, the monkey god, but is named Dirgantara, which means either "Space" or "Father of the Heavens", but the locals generally call it "The 7-up Man".

One of the better photos I found is in the LUN

narciso

well they could have held their applause, or stayed silent, I read James Mann's the Obamians and that sounds about right, rich,

henry

JiB, yes. Judges are elected. Lefties go to Dane County (Madison) or Milwaukee County, the right goes to Waukesha County. The appeals can be in a different county than the suit, so judicial ping pong eventually gets to the SC. In the SC, Chief Abrahamson (prog) delays as long as possible before putting appeals on the schedule (longest serving judge is automatically the Chief per WI Constitution).

Meanwhile in the John Doe, Taylor's source on the DAs is outed by the DAs go to leak guy in the Journal Sentinal. Emergency smear setting of 11 deployed.

GMax

Forgot to check until now, too busy figuring out the politics of Lebanon! Gallup showing no bounce in a three day rolling average. He is at 41% approval today, which while up 1+ is normal variation of polling. I expected no bounce and unless it shows up tomorrow I am going to be correct. When you have lost all credibility by lying so often, no one will believe anything you say. Hard to get a bounce out of that...

AliceH

Oh - I've not been able to find out WHEN Dirgantara was or placed in that roundabout. Would have been after 1963, but probably not long after. So, at least it's likely it actually existed when Obama was 6 and said to have seen it ;)

another little excerpt between
"I did ask her if she loved him--" (pg. 31)
and
'That's Hanuman," Lolo said (pg 33)

"As he and my mother talked, I stuck my head out the back-seat window and stared at the passing landscape, brown and green uninterrupted, villages falling back into forest, the smell of diesel oil and wood smoke. Men and women stepped like cranes through the rice paddies, their faces hidden by their wide straw hats. A boy, wet and slick as an otter, sat on the back of a dumb-faced water buffalo, whipping its haunch with a stick of bamboo...."

Nope. The boy's mother

There are two people in the enneffell who are guilty until proven innocent: Goodell and Belichick. There's no upside for that dope commissioner for this to happen; Belichick probably had Aaron Gonzalez get one of his non-incarcerated fellow thugs to threaten the boy's mother.

Planned Parenthood now attacking GOP plans to expand access to birth control

An growing roster of Republican candidates across the country are embracing Gov. Bobby Jindal’s proposal to make birth control pills available for adult women over-the-counter, without a prescription. This trend is tossing a wrench into the Left’s paint-by-numbers attack strategy of painting the GOP as obsessed with “restricting access” to birth control — which nobody was advocating anyway.* The idea is to bombard young women with multimillion-dollar ad campaigns in order to scare them with this fiction, thus shoring up Democrats’ wide advantage within the key demographic. But now that Republicans are backing plans that do precisely the opposite of limiting women’s access to contraception, Democrats and their allies are…actively opposing that idea, too.
Captain Hate

Assuming the GOP ever gets in control again, if they don't immediately zero out Planned Parenthood they're too dumb to exist as a party.
