Colts up 17-10 at the end of the first half.

Gentlejim

I’m busy watching the World Junior hockey tournament. Entertaining game between Russia and the Swiss. The third period of the US/Sweden game last night was crazy. Time for the 3rd period all tied 3-3.

Narciso79

It doesn't have the intensity associated with luther.

AG Whitaker criticized for past efforts to enforce the law against hiring illegals.
Sounds good!

FIFY: some modern audiences are problematic for many other popular works.

Gentlejim!! My best friend has used this line on me for nearly 40 years. "How about....fuck you"

It still cracks me up.

Colts up 24-10 after drive to start second half!

Best uniforms in football Miss M.

Sidney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre

I can't watch those guys because they both had bad character. So did Bugs Bunny and Speedy Gonzales---bad character. Same with Homer Simpson, Wilt Chamberlain, and Jerry Springer. Bad character, every one of them.

How come nobody anymore has the character Walter Duranty and the Times said Joe Stalin had way back in the 30's? Maybe Jonah G can write a column about that---"When Character Was King Czar."

The Infamous Ignatz

When progs [and the mafia] were mainstreaming the most wretched pornography and telling us nude dancing is protected by the first amendment they told everyone just not to watch it if they didn't like it.
Now, they want to ban a virtuous cartoon Indian character because...well, I'm not sure why, because he works at a Quicky Mart?
Graphic, explicit fake rapes = a-ok.
Dean Martin flirting = time to break out Stalin's eraser.

Daddy, I assume that if it comes out of HOLLYWOOD, it is immoral. Few exceptions. I did think of SEAN PENN today, when Venezuela was mentioned.
What I have learned is that HOLLYWOOD is so bereft of decency, that IF someone working there was DECENT, he/she would be blackballed or quit the FREAK SHOW. This is EXACTLY WHY Hollyweirdo's VIRTUE SIGNAL 24/7.

we have a scholar of Looney Tunes here. everyone should agree to Bugs Bunny's character and virtue ... if only he would agree to run in 2020, Jonah Goldberg could start his cult.

hummm ... Clinton 8 years and Obama 8 years ... lots of character there. Good job GOPe defending and expanding conservatism! Good Job.

GUS

How soon we forget. It still boggles my mind, how much criminal shit OBAMA was involved in, that has been put into the ALL GONE MACHINE.

Read this list.

Oh Rich, don't be so mean, just remember how money MONEY that PAULIE no nuts RYAN raised for the GOP.

Gentlejim

GUS,
That response works for me also. :)

Narciso79

I mean is there any one of these character that 'what a maroon' would be a good starting place, followed with the spritzing water bottle.

jimmyk

Now, they want to ban a virtuous cartoon Indian character because...well, I'm not sure why, because he works at a Quicky Mart?

A commenter at that Speedy Gonzalez video said that they were going to get rid of the character due to its promoting an ethnic stereotype, but it was the Mexican/Hispanic community that reversed that because they liked the character.

I'll bet Indian immigrants enjoy the Apu character too.

The Infamous Ignatz

Not sure if I'm supposed to be the Bugs scholar but I have a question I can't find the answer to;
There was one episode in which Bugs said "Yeah, it's me doc! In the flesh!"
I can't for the life of me remember which one. Google has proven useless.
Anyone got a clue?

I've taken to converting some of WB's best cartoons to mp3s to listen to on the road; they're almost as entertaining, if you know what the visuals were, especially where there were sight gags.

GUS

GUANTANAMO "CLOSURE CZAR". Daniel Fried.

Obama's "Ambassador to Guantanamo".

Reading the tripe about this ass hat, it seems CLEAR, that serving a long time at STATE or any other GUBMINT Agency, is seen as a PLUS by LIBTARDS. No accomplishments necessary, merely need to get hired by some THINK TANK, and you are golden.

daddy

In a ruling issued Sunday, Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth wrote that he stands by his earlier conclusion that the entire law is invalidated by congressional repeal of its fines on people who remain uninsured, like a house of cards collapsing.

However, because “many everyday Americans would ... face great uncertainty” if that ruling were immediately put into effect, O’Connor issued a stay to allow for appeals.

That happens all the time when Lib Judges make rulings, right?

GUS

Was it.....What's Opera Doc? Ig??

GUS

Many American's face "uncertainty", because the unconstitutional law IS in effect.

Captain Hate

Sitting down with a Southern Tier Choklat imperial stout (right up CH's alley, I would imagine, with its 10 % alcohol)

Haven't had that one but I'm a big Southern Tier fan with at least 3 of their barrel aged offerings in the fridge waiting for the right time.

Isaac Watts is an X great uncle.

He might be the most prolific hymn writer ever, with more than 750 to his credit.

As I recall, the Methodist hymnal was chock full of his hymns.

Captain Hate

funny, that Cornell site doesn't even show them as north as Kansas, but my next-door neighbor, former principal of my younger kids' elementary school, Morley Elementary and (yes) the Morley Meadowlarks, has been complaining about their depredations for years!

Maps claiming that flying creatures, most of them migratory, are here but not there are about as accurate as claiming humans have a measurable impact on climate.

The Infamous Ignatz

Nope, Gus.
What's Opera was kind of an outlier, being made in, I think, 55.
The real golden age of WB cartoons was actually pretty short, about 1942-43 until about 1950.
There were good ones now and then before and after, but generally before that they were somewhat archaic and afterward formulaic and increasingly geared toward kids.
The one I'm thinking of was in that sweet spot but I just can't place who he was talking to.

GUS

Capn', the FULL COMMIE no longer cares what is factual and what is NOT factual. They care about shutting down and VOICE, that dares challenge their DOGMA/IDEOLOGY. FACEBOOK can sell their utter bullshit vis a vis reasons why something is banned etc., but the truth is obvious. If the LYNCH MOB disapproves, YOU, are shut down. This principle, does not work in REVERSE. If you make the factual statement that MEN cannot become WOMEN, by having their dicks cut off, and by taking hormone injections. YOU MUST BE SILENCED.
The UNIVERSITY of WISCONSIN recognizes 4 dozen gender pronouns.

Gentlejim

Iggy,
For some reason I’m thinking he was talking to fat Elmer. It wasn’t the wacky wabbit or wabbit twouble. I’ll watch more later. It’ll make for good late night research.

What was the cartoon company who did Woody Woodpecker? It wasn’t Looney Tunes or Disney. Who was it?

Ig, there are NUMEROUS CABLE CHANNELS.....24/7, that are cartoon or kiddie channels.

We had Saturday or Sunday mornings. Speedy Gonzalez BAD. Yosemite Sam VIOLENT.
It's absurd. I'm sorry, but this dove tails with my FULL COMMIE theory. The LEFT has no compunction about forcing THEIR IDEOLOGIES, SICK as many of them ARE, on you and me. THEIR WORLD is far more PURE and INCLUSIVE. The RICHNESS of DIVERSITY.

Captain Hate

Didn't Walter Lantz do Woody Woodpecker?

Gus, Zuckerberg depends on the older generations because the kids want no part of it.

Momto2

lyle - according to Google it was Walter Lanz studios for Universal and it was created in 1940.

Warner Brothers?

Who was his “voice”?

Posted by: The Infamous Ignatz | December 30, 2018 at 10:45 PM

my quick research of the classics didn't yield anything, but am narrowing my focus to the Yosemite Sam period of Bugs Bunny at his most heroic and the Porky Pig era at his most tragic... the philosopher king of our age, nay any age ... "Yeah, it's me doc! In the flesh!" should be chiseled in stone upon our greatest monuments. the Goldberg ideal of character!

GUS

Capn', my son has a FACEBOOK "account", he's nearly 18. He doesn't use it. Another thing the "kids" have little use for is TELEVISION. I rarely see my son watch TV. Rarely.

As for Zuckerturd, he has HANDLERS, that run the FACEBOOK empire. Zuckerturd is not a very bright guy. He's smart enough to steal.

Captain Hate

Momto2,

Teddy saw two other Airedales today. One of them, Theo, is a huge 90 pounder that, even though the owner have papers, I swear is mixed with something else because he's still almost all black as a mature 'dale. He's a good dog who Teddy likes, so I'm not saying this out of any hidden motive; plus his owners are nice people, but wherever they take him to groom him chops off his beard.

Then on the way back from the dog park I saw a guy walking one along the high priced neighborhood I drive through and pulled over so they could meet. Lucas is ten pounds heavier than Teddy but is definitely all Airedale and likewise playful.

Momto2

I bet as Teddy goes to sleep tonight he thinks to himself, "It was a good day!" How often does he see another Airedale? Don't you wonder if they are more drawn to their own breed over other breeds?

Emma is leaving us tomorrow to spend a few days with a huge (90 + lb.) black lab. It's my son's girlfriend's lab and she is keeping Emma while we go out of town for a funeral. Of course, we are taking Darby with us.

Narciso79

Well intellectual property isn't his strong suit certainly, the vinklevossi and savarin gave him money and he stiffed them.

Seriously any time chuck u Schumer speaks 'kill the wabbit' sounds logical.

GUS

Schumer is as filthy as a politician can get.
He gave us ANTHONY (Carlos Danger) Weiner.
Schumer will say ANYTHING, that the thinks the MFM will ECHO, and who he believes will buy his utter hocum. He makes me sick.

Narciso79

Yes gus, but it's more reassuring to see him as Elmer of even daffy duck.

Narciso79

Yes there are two other yorkies on the block, they are like the little rascals there is another set those are shih tzus, hes not warm and friendly with them.

Captain Hate

How often does he see another Airedale?

The Russian woman who had Charlie, until she had to put him down, has a youngster, Rudy, who looks like a slightly smaller Teddy only with a blaze on his chest and an undocked tail; we see him at the park usually once or twice a week.

Don't you wonder if they are more drawn to their own breed over other breeds?

Much as I'd like to think it, I don't think he is. He plays well with most dogs as long as they don't get chippy or out and out attack him. Once at the breeders they had to hustle him out of the room because a known aggressive Airedale male was coming in and fireworks would have happened. He played well with Theo and Lucas (if we had been in an area I could've let him off leash they might have had a good time because Teddy gave Lucas his "let's play" bark) today but his favorite roughhousing friends are other breeds.

Nytol.

The Infamous Ignatz

Gentlejim, or anyone else, there's a website called dailymotion where you can find almost anything. Four of Bug's greatest cartoons aren't on any DVD collections or youtube but you can get them on dailymotion.

I never go to this site. I did this evening, just to see the FULL COMMIE in action.
Every headline, every issue, every conclusion to EVERY PROBLEM, is seen thru FULL COMMIE CLOWN eyes.
Everyone HATES TRUMP. MUELLER investigation going full steam (no discourse as to WHY). FULL COMMIE PARTY LEADER, blames TRUMP for "deaths at the border"....on and on and on and on. It's like debating with a 5 year old. MOMMY is bad, she wouldn't give me JELLO PUDDING for DINNER. The CLOWNS on the left go their way, they got ALL OF PUBLIC SCHOOL CHILDREN over the last 35 years, PROPAGANDIZED and buying into COMMIE BULLSHIT. NOW, the REPORT the BULLSHIT as TRUE without any introspection at all. The MFM is DEAD. Very dead.

He is the continental version of a maroon.

GUS

Macron is a fool. He takes a stand, and the public the rank and file tax payer, says BULLSHIT to his GAS TAX. The public rises up, and Macron , the boy King, ham handedly tries to back down and shit on SOMEONE ELSE. Typical. Muzztards raise hell, EUROTRASH back down. The PUBLIC, the FRENCH people, the taxpaying CULTURALLY FRENCH citizens, have learned from the WIMPIFICATION of MACRON, MAY, MERKEL et al.. The VIOLENT SQUEAKY WHEEL gets the grease. THE POLICIES aren't the problem, the REACTIONS to them get the pussies attention.
So, the STATIST MFM in FRANCE, shits on MACRON.

Who has this fukwit pleased?? Who does he answer to????

Good segue Narciso, I almost used the term earlier.

WHAT A MAROOOOOON.

The answer to a question no one was asking:

Gentlejim

Iggy,
Thanks for the DM tip.

Macron is definitely an ultra maroon.

GUS

Gentlejim, Macron is a girlie man. He and Turdeau. (heh heh) are brothers separated at birth. A pair of girlie boys, with identical groovy suits.

Gentlejim

Yeah, but are their pants creased? I feel a chill. Pfffttttt...

GUS

Why is it every time the FULL COMMIE is told "NO".

Someone becomes HITLER and a MASS MURDERER of JEWS????

Rodham is a prime example. The AMERICAN PEOPLE, said "No Rodham, we prefer Trump", in the same manner all other Presidential Elections have been decided.....and suddenly. Trump, you and I, are all NAZI, WHITE SUPREMECIST, WHITE NATIONALIST, MISOGYNISTS and we need to be KICKED and DESTROYED, never to rise again???

And the MEDIA, doesn't notice, nor report on this VILE HATRED???

Narciso79

That's how they roll, stalin told the communist to call who they thought were their strongest opponents, 'social fascists' he thought taking out the nazis was a piece of cake jan valtin. Aka Albert kreps was a witness to the strategy on the docks of hamburg.

GUS

One last time. READ THIS SHIT. It's absurd.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/extreme-weather-events-2018-top-3-most-expensive-climate-driven-events-took-place-in-us/

GUS

CHURCHILL recognized WHAT Stalin was. He saw the vile HORNED PIG, for the meglomaniacal, paranoid, mass murderer he was.
Saint FDR, did not. FDR liked the ideology that STALIN pretended to represent, so FDR did not fight COMMUNISM. Fortunately for the U.S., Stalin and the SOVIETS, did not get THE BOMB until 48.
Stalin took out the NAZI'S with OUR HELP, our money, our weapons and our support. It was a deal with the devil. One making a deal with the devil, should recognize that the DEVIL is part of the deal.

The only reason for posting this is that the NYT has apparently discovered something about China that we've known about for months now.

China is full of speculative housing that isn't selling.

So the export market is shrinking a little, but real estate development is in huge trouble.

Prayer request please---my momma was admitted to the hospital last night. Diagnosis: pneumonia, but what is keeping her there (besides age, til they know which oral antibiotic to put her on) is an elevated bilirubin. Need to find out what is causing that.
CT scan last night did NOT show pancreatic cancer, which is one possible cause.

I don’t know what happened,” said Assemblyman Gary Pretlow, a Westchester Democrat and the longtime treasurer for the group. “I just sign the checks they give me to sign.”

james d, I've lived with a radiologist for over four decades.
There is not a radiology department in the land that doesn't have a white board with the year's objects/orifices listed in the competition for most notable. ;-)

On a moments reflection, I need to qualify that---historically that was the case.
I'm betting they are few and far between nowadays, with fun being outlawed and "tolerance" demanded.
Seriously, I'm thinking those white boards are regarded as homophobic,
as "the winners' tended to be XY humans with things that moved from rectums to colons. I know--TMI first thing in the morning.
