funny thing about nate rateliff and the night sweats. When the clock radio went off this morning, that was the first song I heard. Mrs. peter knew the song immediately.

"Am I morally obligated to defend the president every time somebody says something bad or controversial about him? I don't think so!" Trump said on Twitter.

"This is the first time in my life that I have caused controversy by NOT saying something...If someone made a nasty or controversial statement about me to the president, do you really think he would come to my rescue? No chance!"

Clarice, yesterday I posted exactly the same thing--sounds as fake as the Benghazi video cover story.

The butterworths, since web seems to have seeded his writing gig to his son, have carved a slightly less referential portrait of herr doctor, as a portly fmr cic man named hessinger, in this mashlike precursor cia coutfit.

And he did collaborate in a series of novel's with richard hooker, so it's not incidental.

Clarice, that is sickening. According to Gen. Dahl, Bergdahl almost deserves a medal for surviving his terrible stint in the military.
The fix is in.

Father Bergdahl will thank the preezy in Pashto for the good news: مننه

Butterworth, in retrospect it occurred to me what he was doing.

As of we didn't know the fix was in. Carlos slims had general dahl's opinion buried in a snippet deep inside the paper.

We cruised up to a dive last night and after we docked, the very first person I saw was a good ol' boy with a 'FUCK ISLAM' t-shirt. My kinda Bubba. He let me take a picture if it.

Any guess who he supports for president? Ya damn right: Trump.

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration on Friday directed Volkswagento recall nearly a half-million cars, saying the automaker illegally installed software in its diesel-power cars to evade standards for reducing smog.

The Environmental Protection Agency accused the German automaker of using software to detect when the car is undergoing its periodic state emissions testing. Only during such tests are the cars’ full emissions control systems turned on. During normal driving situations, the controls are turned off, allowing the cars to spew as much as 40 times as much pollution as allowed under the Clean Air Act, the E.P.A. said.

Awesome song, anonamom! And ur-apropos. :)

Sounds like Gen. Dahl doesn't even want Bergdahl to be dishonorably discharged and lose the $300,000+ back pay accrued during his captivity. If there's not even a court marshal, what prevents Bergdahl from walking away with an honorable discharge, his back pay, plus a psych eval whose payments will support him for life. I want to know who missed that Bergdahl had been kicked out of the Coast Guard earlier, and if that red flag doesn't even matter in BOzo's new US military.

Frau Uber über alles

DebinNC - mistakes might have been made.

That doesn't mean Bergdahl should pay for *his*, however.

Another day, another BOzo WH prop. WH photographer Pete Souza claims there's a law against any pics being deleted, and any and all must be sent to the archives. Unfortunately, BOzo doesn't feel any necessity to abide by laws.

Just listened to it again Beasts. Bloody Mary sounds perfect lyle.
Wonder if I've got anything resembling tomato juice around here?
I know there's Titos and the rest.

That general's testimony is beyond credible, and I believe to be a reflection of current military "leadership"--sychophants, who are doing the Administration's bidding. Note that it is based on his 90 whole minutes with Bergdahl.

Let's hope the jury sticks to the facts. The guy left on his own.

Man, do I sound paranoid. Thanks Obama.

My bet is EPA hammers VW. They will show them no mercy, and given the blatent nature of the offense, will extract Yuuuge monetary penalties.

Gotta get the slush fund padded as much as possible before a new administration shows up.

While I think the EPA regs are overly stringent, if what is being reported is true, VW f&@ked up big time. Big bet and they just crapped out.

Beasts of England

That was a bad assumption on my part, lyle - and I have to adjust for the difference in time zones, too. lol

Saban does revenge pretty well, Buckeye. Younger Beastette reports that the scene in Tuscaloosa is 'insane' and we're eight hours away from kickoff! I reminded her to pace herself at the pre-game party, the pre-pre-game party, and the pre-pre-pre-game party. Thankfully her house is less than 100' from the stadium, so she can wobble home safely. :)

Buckeye

Damn, maybe I better turn autocorrect on.

anonamom

Gotta give VW major points for effort if what they are alleged to have done, they did.

Having software that only complied with emissions requirements when connected to the testing equipment? I'm impressed with that
kind of just-in-time compliance.

I think the agencies are racing to see who can sell the most forgiveness in indulgences before the election. A Billion here and Billion there makes for a lot of slush and walking around money.

Any chance of a pay off Clarice?

Pay off on Bergdahl? I think Obama's gelded most of the top brass.

Not only has he gelded the top brass, but he's performed ritual sacrifice on the junior officers.

It's news to me that Ted Nugent gave up meat.

"I'll denounce what a stranger says to me *after* Pres. Obama denounces the lies of the "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" movement."

Dammit. Hope that turned the italics off ("dammit" is strong language, after all).

Jack is Back!

Clarice,

WSJ reporting the same. The fix is in. You don't really think the Army is going to embarrass the CINC and jail Bergdahl, do you?

You have a Light colonel who has to make the decision whether to court martial Bergdahl . This was an article 32 hearing - sort of like a preliminary hearing in civil criminal law. No way a 2 stars testimony will be over-ruled and if he recommends a court martial you have a 4 star (Abrams of Army Forces Command) who now has to determine how to proceed. All casting bad light on their CinC.

clarice

Let's hope Abrams' dad instilled some courage in his son.

DebinNC

NYT: "For example, despite claims that a half-dozen soldiers died in the search for Sergeant Bergdahl, General Dahl testified that he had found no evidence that any soldiers had been killed while specifically engaged in the effort."

So even Dahl admits Bergdahl's disappearance resulted in a search in which other soldiers' lives were put in jeopardy. Does Dahl think that because, by the grace of God, none of the Bergdahl searchers were killed that mitigates the needless harm they faced seeking him? What a disgraceful precedent Gen. Dahl is trying to set.

Beasts of England

So I go out on the back deck to see what all the commotion is about and my lake neighbors are having a birthday party and they've set up an effin Moon Bounce. A dozen ankle-biters are coming unglued.

Grrrr.

Would it be bad karma to run over there and say 'Have y'all seen my pet boa constrictor? It got out of its cage and it hasn't eaten in a month.'

'...while specifically engaged in the effort.'

That's a Clintonian level of dissembling. Disgraceful.

Why doesn't Obama come out and say he's not a Muslim?

Nearly half the country thinks he is, according to CNN. Why would that be?

Miss M,

Apparently Obama's Americanhalf sister is now a Buddhist.

Then there's this: Why are Americans confused about Obama's religion?

In August, 2010, a Pew poll made news when it found that 18 percent of those surveyed believed Obama is a Muslim. But just as notably, 43 percent of respondents in that survey told Pew they didn't know Obama's religion...

In June, 2012, Gallup asked, "Do you happen to know the religious faith of Barack Obama?" Forty-four percent said they did not know, while 36 percent said he is a Christian, 11 percent said he is a Muslim, and eight percent said he has no religion. The "don't know" group included 36 percent of Democrats.

So, in
--- 2010: 61% of Americans did not know or think that Obama was a Christian, and in
---2012: 63% of Americas did not know or think that Obama was a Christian.

So what the hell has happened since 2012 to convince everybody in the News Media that Obama is a Christian?

Being back in Southampton I forgot no SEC here. LOL. I have Navy, I have OSU losing (early, of course), I have Oklahoma St. and UTSA and Virginia Tech but no LSU v. Auburn (probably the best game on overall).

I do have Air Force but they are out manned today.

So, I'll just watch Navy.

Well, hell's bells, I do have LSU/Auburn and also the Golden Domers who just scored on the injuneers.

Now where is that remote.

I wonder if there is a non-Asian family in America who has two daughters: One in CalTech and the other in Dartmouth? I am impressed and would like to tap daddy and Momma on their method of study motivation, organizationa and self-discipline as I have a 12 year old boy and believe me he is smart but boys will be boys.

Beasts,

Been meaning to ask you, what is your definition of a "coon ass".

I had a piping superintendent when I was a young engineer on a power plant in Maryland who smoked Piciyune cigarettes and drank Community coffee. He told me he was a "coon ass" not a cajurn.

I believed him since his name was an anglo one. His favorite retort to me was "mighty fine". He also told me not to believe anyone who said they were from Louisiana but never cheered for LSU.

Beasts of England

I think it's an 'in' term, JiB. My brother and I can joke on our wop ancestors, but it's still and insult from outsiders. And I think lots of Cajuns embrace coon ass. And I think even the LaTech grads root for LSU. lol

"No one is going to be willing to serve in the military if this shit is allowed to happen."

IMO, that has been the plan since the day Obama was sworn in. We keep saying the people in the military voted Republican was why they never got their ballots on time. IMO, the Democrats have thrown or will throw every Republican out of the military.

ananomom,

I also believe that when schools stopped teaching latin and greek but subbed Spanish it was a downhil delivery. Even in our Southampton Catholic school its Spanish and taught by an "anchcor baby" who is getting too political in class which I will have to take care of in the Bit Jack way. Me and a nun but I am bigger, louder and have more money for tuition:)

This a big problem for education: No classics starting with linguistics.

I have been searching for a boarding Catholic school for Frederick (in high school) that teaches latin and greek. So far, nada. If you know then let me know.
