Balderdash. These "world leaders" are cretins.

rse

Because nothing says power like renaming a group to fit with what you want their themes to be.

henry

If they call it the Arab Tea Party, Obama might actually fight it.

buccaneer morgan

Is it quantum or is it spectre, six of one half a dozen of the other. Also bears noting nus ra is a splinter of the main group.

Jane

What on earth was in your coffee today TM?

MarkO

This reminds me that rabid Democrats are called Media, or Reporters, or, worse yet, Journalists.

At least this time around, some of the candidates are willing to call out these impersonators.

Miss Marple 2

Well, the latest I heard (on one of the prior 2 or 3 threads) is that ISIS doesn't like being called Daesh and threaten to cut out the tongues of people who use it.

Meanehilr, the police are searching room to room in the Pullman Hotel next to the Eiffel Tower. People in that hotel are being told to stay in their rooms and wait for police to come, plus lock doors. Commotion downstairs. Reporter in the hotel doesn't know what's going on.

Jack is Back!

TM,

May I recommend Sanka:)

You are really on a roll, so much we can't keep up.

BTW, Gators win. FSU next up and then they get to play 'Bama.

Jane

Pullman Hotel in Paris now in lockdown.

Jack is Back!

MM,

That Pullman is a small hotel. 23 rooms. Shouldn't take long. But not the kind of flea bag a muzzie from Brussels would choose. We stayed at the one in Montpanarsse once.

Hmm, am I advocating for a re-naming exercise of "Western privilege" at the risk of marginalizing and invalidating the lived experience of hundreds or thousands of terrorist whack jobs? Troubling... maybe we can create a 'safe space' for IS/ISIS/ISIL/Daesh while they work out their issues.

At Yale, perhaps. Or in hell. Nahh, not Yale...

Jack is Back!

I vote for Columbia. Maybe they can defile the joint and find Bozo's grade book. What about Mizzou? At least they are away from the major blue hell metropolitan cities with tall buildings and lots of naive people.

Miss Marple 2

All clear at Pullman Hotel, according to Fox.

Then I guess Obama cannot say he will always have Paris, huh?

It's looking a little rough in Starkville, JiB. May not yet want to name your opponent in Atlanta. Ugh.

The Kurds seem to be doing the most killing of The Headchoppers With No Names so I propose they, as the embodiment of the Universal Moderate Moslem, be allowed to bestow the appropriate name upon those whom they seek to eradicate. I'd toss in unlimited arms and air support as well as moderate amounts of real estate in Iraq, Iran and Turkey along with the naming rights.

Janet

Out-n-about this afternoon & picked up a French flag. The guy said someone had come in & bought all the medium size ones he had.

Jack is Back!

Rick,

Can we give the Kurds Belgian passports and ask them to do the job the Belgians and French won't do?

Jack is Back!

From MM2 4:23 link:

The shocking revelation comes at a time where weapons, and particularly grenades flow freely from the Balkans into Western Europe and nations across the continent are under unprecedented pressure to close their borders in the face of the migrant crisis, and Islamist terrorism.

Another journalist without a reality app. What the hell is so shocking about this to anyone living in our universe?

Jack is Back!

Beasts,

I have never understood the punt return for a TD in all my life including playing the game. It should be the easiest tackle in football. But yet it is shows the worst of coaching and elementary technique. It only proves that football at all levels is imperfect.

But it will be Gators v. 'Tide regardless of the officials blindness.

Jane

What time and what channel is the democrat debate?

Does anyone have comcast? Is there a channel where you can find out what is on TV?

Miss Marple 2

I don't know, Jack. It doesn't shock me.

In fact, I have been expecting a terrorist attack in Europe for the last few months - just didn't know where.

I hope (although probably it's a forlorn hope) that the dems will be made to squirm tonight in the debate.

Since the moderator is the Communist Dickerson, son of Nancy, I don't think this will happen, but it should be amusing to see them dance around it.

CBS 8 pm eastern

Jane

I'm dying to know what Bernie will say he will do about Isis. Join them maybe?

Hillary will destroy them in 20 minutes and then reset the world back to before 911.

Janet

What time and what channel is the democrat debate?

Jane...you should call Monica Hanley.

"In one January 2010 email to aide Monica Hanley, Ms Clinton asked about how she could watch two of her favourite television shows.

“Can you give me the times of two TV shows: Parks and Recreation and The Good Wife,” Ms Clinton asked.

She also told Ms Hanley how she prefered to take her tea.

“Could you or he buy skim milk for me to have for my tea?” she wrote. “Also, pls remind me to bring more tea cups from home.”"

Miss Marple 2

Jane,

Do you have Comcast? If so, they should have given you a channel guide in a brochure when it was installed. This debate is on CBS, which should be in the low numbers for you.

Use your remote and hit the "Guide" button. It should pop up a screen which shows channel numbers and programs. Scroll down to the CBS channel in your area.

That’ll show them.

Trimalchio

I'd call them "dead pig-buggers," as in some leader needs to declare that all of them are now dead and damned. Then we can report things like, "French special forces put down another 300 dead pig-buggers outside the ashes of Raqqa today. Video of their corpses has been posted to YouTube."

Call them "Islamic State" because they represent the only possible end result of absolute devout observance of the teachings of the epileptic child molester and all of the scholars who came after.

They are the purest form of islam.

It is pure insanity to let fighting age Syrians into this country.

Jindals letter to Obama Here

Mr. President, in light of these attacks on Paris and reports that one of the attackers was a refugee from Syria, it would be prudent to pause the process of refugees coming to the United States. Authorities need to investigate what happened in Europe before this problem comes to the United States.
Janet

Exactly. If they want to flee their country...let them go to one of the Arab countries.

I don't have a "guide" button. I have an "info"button that goes no where.

Bah Humbug!

Dave (in MA)

Comrade Bernie is upset that the network wants to focus more on foreign policy after yesterday's attacks.

Jack is Back!

Gorka is spot on an is previous writings are prescient.

Jindal should defie Obama and the regime and refuse to accept the terrorist refugees. No housing, no food, no LA bennies, no nothing.

Miss Marple 2

Jane,

Well then, foo!

Here is my other idea. Go to Google and search "channel guide Comcast for sip code XXXXX."

See if a listing comes up.

Miss Marple 2

Ahem.
"zip code."

Jack is Back!

Okay, I am tired of the Florida jokes. How about these Mass jokes?

You can't even wear a sombero for your photo in Florida.

Miss Marple 2

TK,

Thanks to the link for the Gorka appearance and transcript (PLUS that has a link to his web site, which is cool).

I have never seen that guy before. He is definitely an impressive guest and one who gets the message out!

Buckeye

Does Comrade Bernie think he can dictate world events?

Play the cards you're dealt and STFU.

Jane

Tried that MM - no luck. I thought maybe comcast had a channel that revealed that was on, but apparently not.

Janet

CBS 8 pm eastern

This says 9 pm - http://www.cbsnews.com/news/how-to-watch-the-cbs-news-democratic-debate/

"The second Democratic debate will be held at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, on Nov. 14. It will air from 9pm to 11pm ET on the CBS Television Network. Pre-debate coverage will begin at 8pm ET."

It would be good to have at least one of the Republican debates on a non-cable channel.

Jack is Back!

Jane probably doesn't have comcast in Port Charlotte. Most likely Xfinity.

Jane

Is the debate at 9?

Jane

Oops. Thanks Janet

Jack is Back!

janet,

Only dems and progs watch CBS. The LIV's will be watching other stuff.

Miss Marple 2

Jack,

Dems, progs, and people like us who want to know what lame stuff they will say.

"Only dems and progs watch CBS."

Only on Saturdays between 1 and 4 pm.

Fascinating find by our Chitown Lurker, < a href="http://www.spiegel.de/international/the-future-of-terrorism-what-al-qaida-really-wants-a-369448.html>the al quad plan. Check the date, then scroll down to the plan milestone dates. spoke.

OK. France and Dutch.

Maybe they think if all NATO says it's an acto of war, Doofus in the Oval will actually do something!

henry

yeah, send a carrier to puck up 500,000 migrants and put them in red states

Miss Marple 2

Found and copied henry's link. Very interesting:

Jane

Maryrose,

I liked it best yesterday and today. Yesterday I had lunch with Mr & Mrs SBW and for some reason that made me feel at home.

Today I didn't put the AC on all day and wore a shirt with sleeves (which I changed at noon).

I will say the people where I live are wonderful. I'm getting used to it.

Miss Marple 2

Jane,

To make you happier with your decision, I am wearing a sweatshirt over a polo.

I probably won't wear a t-shirt by itself until April.

anonamom

henry, they are right on target.
Can't say we've not been warned.
And if I read it correctly, ISIS was in the plan--5th phase.

jimmyk

Jane...you should call Monica Hanley.

Hah, Janet, brilliant! LOL.

I presume Kerry calls the Islamic State "Daesh" for two reasons: One, because it's sounds all foreign and other language-y, and makes him feel smart; and, two, because it doesn't explicitly link to Islam, like the "I" in "IS," "ISIS," "ISIL," or "Islamic State." No doubt some idiot in the State Department came up with the idea.

clarice

Heat's on already in DC, Jane.

clarice

No doubt, jimmyk.

clarice

Jane--check your emails--windansea wants to meet up with us, too.

First snow today in the NH North Country, Jane. Raw and windy. Enjoy what you've got!

BTW, I wish you very well in your new home. ((Don't think I've said that before.

Michael (fpa Patriot4Freedom)

Jane - You might want to ask one of your new neighbors to "walk you through" their Comcast TV system.

Sounds like they'd probably be more than willing to help a new neighbor out.

Miss Marple 2

Jane,

You can also call the Comcast number and ask them. You will have to go through a telephone tree and might get someone who doesn't speak very good English, but this is a simple question they could answer.

maryd

PS Jane, I hope you have had a chance to read your buddy Mark Steyn's essay on the attack in France, or perhaps to see him on fox and friends today. Great stuff!

How many channels do you have, Jane?

Captain Hate on the iPad

jimmyk, it could be that all those mashed potatoes injected in that lantern jaw make it hard for Clutch to utter polysyllabic words.

CH, maybe the bicycle pants compress his brain

Jane

Clarice,

I'm shocked about Windandsea (since I asked him to email you).

Psyched about the meet-up.

Centralcal on iPad

Guess Bernie had a hissie fit with CBS-over trying to change the debate re:France and terrorism. Bernie won.

Jane

Bernie won? So no discussion of terrorism?

henry

Barney the purple will moderate

Captain Hate on the iPad

henry, I guess Lovey has decided not to tell him what an unathletic douche he looks like in those. What a pinhead.

jimmyk

Heh, CH, somehow he squeezed "modalities" out through all those spuds.

Captain Hate on the iPad

The concept of Teh Bern throwing a hissy fit is pretty funny. He ordinarily sounds like a retard wearing Louise Slaughter's dentures so adding anything incrementally ludicrous is rife with unintentional humor.

Such a dignified party...

Captain Hate on the iPad

jimmyk, modalities is right in your reason one wheelhouse.

narciso

actual details about the attackers,

http://www.thelocal.fr/20151114/what-we-know-so-far-about-the-attackers

Janet

Didn't CBS talk with the Dems about the debate? I think Politico had some post about a pre-debate interview.

I guess if CBS changes the questions & focus it will be too hard for the Dems.
Can't have that.

Jane

Apparently Bernie's staff went ballistic when told foreign policy might be part of the debate.

Poor thang.

clarice

Ask Hillary if she's still sticking to her position the other day that we should admit 65k unvetted Syrians.
