I usually need lots of beer to see double. What?

Iggy

Stand By Your Dumbass Man

NKontheNovreboot

henry-- Maguire talked soccer talk 'own goals'. I got excited!!

Dave (in MA)

The news report on the radio that mentioned her nomination said that she's the first African-American woman to be nominated. They didn't mention anything else. Apparently that's all it takes. I guess they couldn't find one who was also a transgendered lesbian hispanic midget in a wheelchair.

glasater

Clinton salted the government agentcies with young liberal 'timebombs' that GW couldn't cleanse out of the various bureaucracies during his eight years.
Now this one pops up.

Iggy

She already works for James Watt, Dave.

Captain Hate

At least she has some chins.

GMax

Wheelchairs are out. That evil Greg Abbott used his to beat Abortion Barbie to death. Its now verboten to speak of them...

Captain Hate

The Weather Channel morning show has higher ratings than CNN and MessNBC.

Jack is Back!

I thought Clinton had nominated an AA woman back in the day who had serious background and opinion issues and never saw the first confirmaiton hearing?

Just checked for myself and it was Lani Guinier who was nominated for Assistant AG. She of the "cumulative voting" system.

Captain Hate

Yes, Lani was one of those "centrist" nominees that Clenis wanted to update the Constitution by completely shredding it. Good thing we had a real opposition party then...

daddy

Worth noting that both Rush and Dennis Prager today mentioned the clip of the MIT Prof (Obamacare architect) justifying lying about ObamaCare to Americans because in his opinion we were too stupid to be for ObamaCare if we had been told the truth about it.

Has anyone seen any reports about this liar in the MSM?

Threadkiller

Google should not be toyed with.

Thomas Collins
"Has anyone seen any reports about this liar in the MSM?"

Has anyone seen any reports that any stripper has admitted that remarks about overweight middle aged men on how cuddly they are and how she loves older men is simply to get the champagne room flowing with orders of Dom and with dollar bills (hundreds, that is).

Thomas Collins

In any event, this Lynch is a cinch to be the next AG. Save the gunpowder for 404Care and appropriations bills that will defund 404LackofBorders, 404IntertubeNeutrality, and so on.

Old Lurker

"overweight middle aged men "

HEY!

Beasts of England

Seventy degrees and sunny for Nofe Alabammer tomorrow and my Sailboat Sweetie has invited me out for a lake cruise. Better check the cellar for a couple bottles of good Champagne.

Wednesday afternoon Samantha and I are flying up to Grandfather Mountain with some friends for several nights. Their jet, not mine.

Back Saturday in time to drive over for the JOM-a-palooza in the ATL, provided there are no Ferguson sympathy riots breaking out. A friendly JOM reminder: dinner at Chops is compliments of Beasts. No arguing. Remember, I'm bad about fighting.

And, finally, I'll sneak over to Ferrari of Atlanta to see if they're gonna get right on a 458 Italia Spider that I'm lusting (in my heart) after.

It's a cruel world...

daddy

No Election Ballots counted up here until tomorrow, but this bit from the Fairbanks paper is very positive for a different reason:

Report: Young Alaskans voted Republican

Young voters in Alaska departed from their peers in most other states this midterm election by voting majority Republican in the state’s senate race...

...Alaska voters in the 18- to 29-year-old age bracket voted for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan over Democrat Mark Begich 48 percent to 44 percent.

The voting trend made Alaska one of only a few states in the country in which a majority of young voters chose a Republican candidate over a Democratic candidate

The youth vote turned markedly against Begich compared to the 2008 campaign in which...Begich won 54 percent of the youth vote compared to 39 percent for Ted Stevens

Alaska has about 125,000 citizens between the ages of 18 and 29 years old, about 25 percent of the population.

I find that very positive, especially considering that Legalizing Marijuana was on the Ballot and won a resounding victory.

daddy

Has anyone seen any reports that any stripper has admitted that remarks about overweight middle aged men on how cuddly they are and how she loves older men

TC,

Are you saying that there are strippers on that NRO Cruise and I just haven't read about it yet? I better start catch-up quick. Also makes me wonder if Jane's still the favorite?

Thomas Collins

Well, OL, I was just referring to OMAM who troll the strip clubs, not those whom the ladies lust after for their charm and virility (which I am sure accounts for most of the JOMOMAM).

Thomas Collins

Now that's an idea, daddy. A cruise with scholars, journalists and Fannie Foxes!

James D.

In any event, this Lynch is a cinch to be the next AG. Save the gunpowder for 404Care and appropriations bills that will defund 404LackofBorders, 404IntertubeNeutrality, and so on.

I'm not so sure. Considering how powerful the AG post can be to cover up wrongdoing and deflect accountability for the myriad crimes of the Administration, it might be a fight worth having.

Beasts of England

Thank goodness I'm not overweight!!

peter

Beasts, sounds like a really tough week. But you can get through it if you perservere

Dave (in MA)

OK, I was wrong. I wrote "The news report on the radio that mentioned her nomination said that she's the first African-American woman to be nominated."

I guess I meant "to serve in that position", but my main point remains. The 2 diversity checkboxes were all that the radio news blurb mentioned.

Thomas Collins

A fight would backfire big time, James D. Lynch doesn't have Guinier's public record. Plus, if Lynch is stopped, whoever will be running the DOJ will be an Obama appointee who is already there, who will continue the Holder policies and coverups. Lynch could only be an improvement.


By the way, James D, you might be interested in knowing that on Boston talk radio this weekend, there was a discussion about whether a NY Giants fan, with two recent SBs but interspersed with mediocre to subpar seasons, is better or worse off than a Patriots fan, with two recent SB losses but a consistent serious contender.

Jack is Back (Again)!

JamesD,

Well, it will certainly be a first test of the McConnell discipline if Cruz and Lee decide to make the nomination a platform for debating O's executive perogative on immigration and now voting rights.

Beasts of England

Thanks, peter. I just remind myself that one day it'll get better...

rse

Beasts-I believe you will find that both Stephanie and I are very good fighters.

Should be a fun night.

James D.

TC, that's a tough call.

I really don't know which one I'd pick. Both choices have some ridiculous high points, interspersed with total heartbreak.

Beasts of England

Oh crap, rse! Well, at least let me buy us a bunch of really good vino!! ;)

Thomas Collins

I would take the Super Bowls, James D. Just as I'd rather have the Bosox go worst to first to worst than 91-71, second round playoff exit; 96-66, ALCS playoff exit; 88-74, wild card game playoff exit. Of course, if the Bosox have another high sixties or low seventies win season next year. . . .

MarkO

TC,

Dom? Damn. That's what we forgot.

James D.

Yeah, I see that. But on the other hand, you also had the 3 SBs in 4 years, and you can always break out the DVDs of those games to console yourself after a bad playoff loss.

And, yes, that's exactly what I do when I'm feeling bad about the Giants, why do you ask?

daddy

Conservative columnist Deb Saunders is on the Dennis Miller Show and she is gloating about how she was the happiest person at the San Francisco Chronicle last Wednesday morning!

She is now mentioning some smaller races in California where for example an unknown Tea Party guy is still leading an ancient entrenched Dem in the central Valley.

lyle

Bon Appetit, you guys. I'm envious.

Beasts of England

We'll get a menu signed for you, lyle. And I'm sure you'll hear enough about the food and conversation that you won't have missed much! ;)

pagar

I do not see any reason that a person who has already told the nation that Voter ID is racist should even get any opportunity to control the DOJ.

daddy

Deb Saunders is saying that what she is hearing from the Left as to their deluded justification for why the Hispanics didn't come out in mass and vote for Dem's, is that they believe it is because Obama did not push Amnesty thru before the Election, so they were angry with him and did not vote.

daddy

Great.

Neil Cavuto opens his show up with the story of Professor Gruber, ObamaCare architect, and his statement of why he needed to lie to Americans to pas ObamaCare.

Now Neil is playing tape of himself asking Gruber similar statements a year ago on his show, where Neil accused Gruber of hiding the facts and Gruber responded that the plan is great regardless of whether we told the facts about it or not.

Thomas Collins

Next time it'll be a Cristal/Dom party, MarkO. But I think I'll get into trouble with building management if I drank the bubbly on the treadmill.

I asked because I'll always take the championships, James D, and the NY Giants and Patriots seem to be an excellent recent example of the issue (made especially acute by the fact that the Giants beat the Pats twice in the SB). I realize 2001, 2003 and 2004 take some of the sting out of it (being more recent than the Giants' victories over Denver and Buffalo).

Jim Miller

Somewhat immodestly, I point out that I predicted the 2010 and 2014 Republican wins in September 2008.

Which is more than six years before Robert Merry made a similar analysis, after the fact.

Beasts of England

I believe that to be true, daddy. I have little doubt. Barry made the triangulation that delaying amnesty would save enough endangered dem seats to offset the diminished Latino vote. He, like the rest of the libtards, couldn't possibly conceive of a tsunami.

Of course, no consideration was given by him to do what was right or proper. But we knew that...

Jim Miller

daddy - I posted this before, but I think you may have missed it. (Or I may have missed your reply.)

Is this brief description of the Alaska governor's race reasonable?

"Alaska is a weird special case. The Republican incumbent, Sean Parnell, is losing to a former Republican running as an independent, Bill Walker. Former governor Sarah Palin has endorsed Walker, so you could see this general election as something like a Republican primary, in Alaska's often fractious Republican Party. (It would be an open primary, since the Democrats have joined Walker.)"

(I used it in a post, four days ago.)

Beasts of England

Wow, TC! Lynch chooses to use that name instead of Hargrove? Talk about race baiting! Let's hope it's a High Tech Lynch Lynching...

Beasts of England

Directed at Jim Miller, not Thomas Collins. Sorry

Porchlight

Can't wait for both NRO cruise reports and Atlanta meetup reports....

Jim Miller

daddy - The weather here in Washington state is gorgeous. It is, at times, a picture postcard kind of day.

daddy

rse,we see so much roadkill here. When a vehicle hits a deer or moose,the results are often fatal,for humans and animals. The moose are so darn dumb they stand in the middle of the road.

Marlene,

Up here when a moose is hit, a call is immediately put out by the traffic police to whoever has entered their name on a lottery list, and if your number is called you get to come down and immediately pick up the roadkill for whatever is salvageable.

I recall years ago that the moose's legs get chopped of and fed to the bears in our local zoo, where they are colloquially called "Bear Popsicles". Years back at a kids Birthday party in December held at the Zoo, a small pick-up drove up and had these frozen moose legs, chopped off from a bit above the knee, stuck in the back of the pickup, ready to serve. Kids got to touch 'em and go "Eww," "Cool," or "Yuck."

lyle

Beasts-I believe you will find that both Stephanie and I are very good fighters

daddy,

This might be the race Deb Saunders is talking about:

http://www.fresnobee.com/2014/11/05/4220380_political-parties-scratching-heads.html?rh=1

Not a single person steeped in the world of federal politics saw this coming.

Not the political pundits of the Washington Beltway. Not the National Republican Congressional Committee or its counterpart, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Not the deep-pocketed independent groups that shower cash on candidates in competitive races.

Not even, it seems, Jim Costa.

Now — for the second time in four years — the Fresno Democrat finds himself in a tight re-election campaign, having to hope that uncounted mail and provisional ballots in the 16th Congressional District will be enough to push him past Burrel dairy farmer Johnny Tacherra, his unheralded and lightly financed opponent.

Costa “just got blindsided by an angry electorate,” said Allan Hoffenblum, a longtime Republican strategist and author of the California Target Book, which tracks the state’s elections.

With the Election Day ballot counting finished, Tacherra holds a slim 736-vote lead over Costa. In percentage terms, it is 50.5% to 49.5%.

“When you are that close (in the vote count), you think you should have done more,” said former congressman and longtime Democratic Party stalwart Richard Lehman. “But (Costa) didn’t see it coming.”

Neither did anybody else.

Ah, but the Red Racing Horses guys did:

http://www.redracinghorses.com/diary/3925/ca16-a-safe-district-that-might-not-be-safe

Porchlight

is that they believe it is because Obama did not push Amnesty thru before the Election, so they were angry with him and did not vote.

Remember all the hecklers in Obama's appearances in late October. They were all from pro-amnesty activist groups.

Plants? Very possibly.

Thomas Collins

No worries, BOE. That's a step up in status for me to be mistaken for JM. But you may have to answer to JM for that! :-))

lyle
Republicans and even some Democrats have said that Tuesday’s elections were a repudiation of this president and should prompt a personnel shake-up at the White House. Mr. Obama has resisted such suggestions but noted that he would be bringing in some new staff because “people get tired."

“What I’ve told everybody is, you know, I want you to have as much enthusiasm and energy on the last day of this administration as you do right now or you did when you first started,” he said. “Otherwise you shouldn’t be here.” He continued, "Look, no one has worked harder on his short irons harder than I have the last six years and you don't hear me whining about it, do you? I mean, sure, MJ thinks he's got game I plan to keep hitting the pitching range until I can spin the ball on the green like Rory." At his point, he looked up and realized everyone had left the room and he was talking to just Valerie who had just finished her grilled puppy and Joe who was excavating his left nostril with his index finger.

I may have edited a little...

Thomas Collins

I know it could be said to be akin to shooting fish in a barrel, but see below link for a takedown of Paul Krugman's "reasoning" (if you'll forgive me for using reason in the context of Krugman) on Halbig v. Burwell.

Miss Marple

Jake Tapper apparently played the Gruber tape on his show.

That makes 2 shows that have covered it. I hope word gets out there just in time for people to find out about how they were lied to when their new enrollment information comes.

lyle

Here's another one, TC:

http://patterico.com/2014/11/10/how-dishonest-is-paul-krugman-this-dishonest/

Jim Miller

TC - Since I write headlines almost every day -- and admire those who are good at it -- I'm just pleased to share the headline possibilities that "Lynch" gives us.

I would bet that there are people at the NY Post and the Daily Mail who are, right now, absolutely delighted by her name.

jimmyk

Here's more on Krugman, suggesting (get ready), that he's a liar.

http://joshblackman.com/blog/2014/11/09/paul-krugman-doesnt-understand-metes-and-bounds-or-statutory-interpretation-with-king/

I don't know much about property law, but this sounds right.

Miss Marple

jimmyk, The author is exactly right. I used to work for a title company before I went back to college, and the laws are exactly as described in the article.

A clerk who changed a deed in that manner would be violating the law.

Okay, just a little more:

NKontheNovreboot

Krugman Pere-- I could see it being worked out by the Nassau County recorder of deeds by filing a 'no consideration correcting deed' especially if no one else made a claim against that bit of Mrs. K's garden. I am doing that sort of correction for a significant apartment building in manhattan for a large hospital. The big question would be whether the Title Company would have the stones to demand a second premium from Krugman Pere after insuring over the first incorrect deed. But of course all of this has F#@kall to do with the issue in Burwell and Halbig.

Old Lurker

No Town Clerk could make that change and if he did, it would not stick and he could/should go to jail. That story is BS.

I always buy Title Insurance but the policy always includes a standard survey exception which lets the title company off the hook if a discrepancy would have been revealed by a current certified survey following the metes and bounds described in the deed. So I always always have property I buy surveyed and certified and then I get the title company to accept the survey and remove their exception. That way I get the Title Insurance Company and the Engineering Company both, and both of their E&O Carriers on the hook.

jimmyk

The second item loses a bit of humor due to being absolutely true.

Yeah, whoever it was that said "Satire is dead" is right: All you have to do is quote Pelosi, DWS, and Barry and it beats any parody.

daddy

On the Gruber guy (ObamaCare Architect) I believe Neil Cavuto said that he is going to be making an appearance on the Network later today. Good.

Judge Napolitano said he thought Gruber would stick by his earlier statement instead of trying to backtrack away from it. He also thought that getting ObamaCare architect Gruber's statement (of lying in the drafting of ObamaCare being necessary to pass Obamacare) up in front of the Supreme's, will be very important and influential in their review of Halbig.

Old Lurker

NK, the rub as you say is "if nobody has a competing claim" and once the neighbor finds his windfall - a particularly if the neighbor's deed tracks the exact same line - there will be a competing claim for sure.

I had a situation where an angle was transposed and that cocked the parcel all over the street and neighbors' lots. We did get a Corrected Deed but they all had to sign off and it took several years. Had someone refused to agree, my recourse would have been, in MD, a "Quiet Title" case in court. Routine but a pain.

jimmyk

While I hope that SCOTUS rules against 404Care on this, I do think that will create multiple headaches for the Republicans. The Democrats will demand a legislative fix, and the MSM will fill up with heartbreaking stories of people who can no longer afford insurance.

I think the Rs could turn this to their advantage by combining a fix with other measures that cut the heart out of 404Care, but that will take some ingenuity, and I don't have great confidence that Boehner and McConnell can pull it off.

Old Lurker

One thing at a time, Jimmy. Let's get the law gutted first.

NKontheNovreboot

I agree with your 5:07 OL-- the 'folksy' Krugman Pere just strolling into Nassau Recorder of deeds and having a clerk fix it all is baloney. But if the metes/bounds didn't give the neighbors any part of the land, and the garden 'triangle' was simply not in the title record, an affidavit from Pere Krugman and the neighbor attesting to the actual metes/bounds would have been sufficent to record a correcting deed in my experience. OL-- perhaps you need more result oriented counsel :)

Marlene

daddy@4:18...the state troopers or game wardens are called to a roadkill scene and try to salvage the meat from a moose or deer. In fact (warning,this is gross) one Sunday morning I was driving back from the cabin and a few miles down the highway, a moose was on the side of the road,and the ears were still twitching. About a minute later my cell phone rang and the daughter said,hi Mom,how are you? I said well,I just passed a moose that was hit and it was still twitching.She said said ewww! Call a game warden! Too late,I said. Anyway,hubby was about 30 minutes behind me. I asked him,did you see the moose? He said yeah,but there was nothing left except the back end of the poor thing.

jimmyk

Gotta plan ahead, OL. It's a chess game. (Fortunately Obama is not even at checkers level.)

Old Lurker

Popcorn, please...

"Radio host Rush Limbaugh has threatened to sue the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) for defamation, The Daily Caller has learned.

Limbaugh retained the services of lawyer Patty Glaser and demanded that the DCCC “preserve all records in anticipation of a lawsuit for defamation and interference” after the Democratic Party group led a campaign against Limbaugh based on out-of-context statements the host made about sexual assault. Limbaugh’s legal team delivered a letter to DCCC representatives Monday informing them of the legal threat. Limbaugh has also demanded a public apology.

The Limbaugh team is currently proceeding from the standpoint of litigating and has not yet made a decision as to whether the DCCC could make any concessions at this point to prevent the lawsuit."

lyle

Who said it?

“We face a basic question in this country: Who does this government work for? Is government to advance the interests of the rich and the powerful? Does government exercise its power only for those who can hire armies of lobbyists and lawyers? Is it there only to strengthen the strong and enrich the wealthy? Or does government work for all of us?”
Old Lurker

Another really really smart person from Harvard, right Lyle?

rse

From the vision of the JFK School of Gov

"At their best, cities can be places where people with different socio-economic and ethnic and racial backgrounds come together and use the ballot box and other political means to achieve a just and fair society. Likewise, city governments can use land-use and social policy, among other tools, to strengthen community life and improve access to basic goods and services. Yet often these same policies—both in the processes through which they are decided and in their ultimate effect on residents’ lives—exacerbate rather than reduce social exclusion and economic disparity. "

That's the environment for amnesty, the right of the illegal immigrants to force the US to be a "fair and just society."

lyle

Whatever one thinks about Rush, one would have to admit the obvious: he's got some really--REALLY--deep pockets. Is it too much to hope he starts naming individuals within the DCCC so that they have to lawyer up? Delicious.

jimmyk

I suspect it's someone who in practice defines "works for" as "rules over."

lyle

With much wampum and high cheekbones to boot, OL.

daddy

JiM Miller,

That description sounds on the money to me.

Our Republican Party leadership over the last 2 years had some real schisms, and you may recall that the Ron Paul type who won the party Leadership was immediately ousted from his Leadership position by the outgoing Old Guard Repub party leadership via semi-legal chicanery. Then when the newly elected vice chairman was by default elevated to the Leadership, the Old Guard immediately booted her out in pretty much the same manner, and it all wound up in court with much Talk Radio internecine bloodletting.

Ultimately a guy took over the leadership who was nominated/supported by the Old Guard, creating much bad blood.

All that said, it made for many nasty feelings, and some if not many folks felt that the triumphant Alaskan Leadership of the RNC was illegitimate.

The Old Guard to my understanding supported Parnell since he was already in power.

I have not followed it very closely since I am gone so much, and Begich/Sullivan was what I was concerned with. I assumed Parnell was going to win so I paid little attention.

Parnell was heavily savaged by the local Press for not doing enough to stop a serial senior Raper/Sexual Harasser in the National Guard, and that damaged him severely. I did not keep up with it but the pounding via the local paper and local Newscasts was unending. And why exactly Sarah Palin came out loudly for Walker I do not know, but for her to toss overboard her Lt Governor and former protege (Parnell) she must have had a strong reason, and whatever that reason was it was evident/and or resonated with a majority of Conservative/Independent voters up here.

It was not evident to me, so I was asleep at the switch and Narciso probably has a better handle on the buried bodies and why Sarah went for Walker over Parnell than I do. The Fairbanks paper thinks Walker and his Democrat Lt Governor running mate will lose votes in the recounting but will still win in a very close race.

Sue

I don't know where Krugman lived as a child but he probably missed a few steps in remembering what happened. A corrected deed can be filed, but it involves the signatures of grantor and grantee.

daddy

I see The Five is reporting that GW Bush said that he thinks that Jeb Bush would make a great President and he is all in for it.

Honestly, what else could he say?

Sue

Lyle,
The president referred to us as customers. It was jarring to me.

lyle

When in China, do as the Chinese do, right? Precious announces Net Neutrality while on Communist soil. I dislike the cable cos. as much as anyone but if anyone thinks this is anything but a way to start controlling internet content, well, I still have that oceanfront ID property on offer from the previous thread.

clarice

I don't know if Gruber's statement made it in any of hte loer court proceedings, but if it didn't there are always fns in briefs.%^) (I know--I've done it for matters of public record.)

Iggy

--But if the metes/bounds didn't give the neighbors any part of the land, and the garden 'triangle' was simply not in the title record, an affidavit from Pere Krugman and the neighbor attesting to the actual metes/bounds would have been sufficient to record a correcting deed in my experience.-

Correct, so long as both parties agree on the correction. Have done so myself in a mistaken description that I embarrassingly have to take credit for.

And just for the record, "metes and bounds" is not the only method of describing or transferring property in property law. Large parcels are often transferred via township, section and or subsection description, especially in areas that have not been surveyed where there no metes or bounds exist.

Captain Hate on the iPad

The Patterico post and comments were outstanding, particularly the one suggesting that the more delusionally combative Krugger's columns are, the more likely they were written by his harridan wife.

Jim Miller

daddy - Thanks much for the info on Alaska -- which doesn't get much coverage, even here in the Seattle area.

(Sometimes the Republican Party in Alaska reminds me of an extremely dysfunctional family.)

Iggy

Where parties don't agree then you have a huge mess known as a quiet title/adverse possession case of which I've had a few, and one right now.

Beasts of England

That bugged the crap outta me, too, Sue. We're not his customers, we're HIS BOSS!! Need a martini. Or three...

Old Lurker

Or, Iggy, how about those old deeds that run from the old oak tree by Farmer Smith's gate up to the well by his barn then back down the creek to the county road, then back up to the oak tree at the gate...

Jim Miller

Clarice (and anyone else who is interested in those APEC costumes) - I believe I am correct in saying that Clinton started that.

And I am nearly certain that Obama called it off for the meeting in Hawaii. (Which seems unfortunate to me, since there are so many interesting possibilities.)

Miss Marple

Old Lurker, The price of silver in 1998 was %5.58 per ounce. It closed today at $15.57 So based just on the bullion price the value would have increased roughly threefold.

This does not, however, account for any value based on workmanship, manufacturer, or antiquity.

For example, old Tiffany silver has a higher value than old Rogers items, just because of the name. And if a piece is a commemorativve piece issues by Tiffany for something like the Bicentennial or something like that, it might be more valuable.

On the other hand, if it has been engraved with initials it depresses the price, because you are limiting your buyers to those with the same initials. At that point you are usually back to the bullion value alone.

I hope this helps. If you need more information, just let me know.

jimmyk

But if the metes/bounds didn't give the neighbors any part of the land, and the garden 'triangle' was simply not in the title record,

That would suppose the land in question was not owned by anyone, just unaccounted for? Does that ever happen? For what it's worth, Krugman grew up in Nassau County, not Somalia.

jimmyk

I held my nose and looked at the Krugman piece. Lots of comments even by NYT readers pointing out that this was no "typo."

matt

Jim M;

Back in the day we had deals with Reyn Spooner and a couple of others to provide team shirts for various countries for different Games.

They could do a real good job churning out beautiful custom designs for a reasonable price. It's a shame Obumbles didn't do this.

Beautiful, unique, and Hawaii made. But then, what do you expect?

lyle

Are any of SCOTUS justices aware of the crap coming out of Gruber's piehole? Seems to me he's preemptively calling them chumps.

narciso

what was dissapointing was W going on the morning shows, and not defending his own policies, as long as he has a reason to plug his memoir, an opportunity lost

maryd

Jim Miller, most of the time the national Republican party reminds me of an extremely dysfunctional family. For example, we found out this morning, via a Union Leader editorial, that Democrat voters far outnumbered Republicans in last Tuesday's elections. ow this could happen, I just can't fathom. Oh wait, the public employee unions... AND a dumb Republican state leadership.
