Disagree that Assange is any kind of “journalist”.

MissMarple2

Alex the Chick agrees with me!

You want a conspiracy theory? Here's mine.

Obama and Hillary were setting up Trump and when he lost they were going to charge him with treason.

Didn't Bradley Manning get thrown back in jail a few days ago for not testifying in a Wikileaks case?

I'm not sure that presidential pardon carries as much as it used to.

After what they'd laid out for surveillance in Chicago under both Bush and iBama, there's no way they (Team Chicago) would've let a golden opportunity like this go unmolested.

Having perused the menu and the wine list at Bern's, would they toss me out on my butt if I ordered steak and a diet coke? ;)

Y'all are making me feel downright hickish with my gift card to Eddie V's in Tampa that my brother gave me for Christmas. We are planning on using it on the way back from the Keys in November. And I thought I was gonna be in high cotton with that. Just dayum.

Parent Alert:

Based upon my reading on this blog over the last umpteen years, a few of you have been down this road before...

My oldest and dearest graduated last May from I.U. Since she's a local here in the Bloomington, IN area she just kept on rolling as a Townie.

In a sorority, she didn't realize things had really changed until the new crop of Phi Mu's rolled in to take over the sublets for the summer. She then realized she was 'old'.

She took a sales job in Chicago and I moved her in with boyfriend, a Chicago boy, last November.

He graduated from I.U. the year before she did. They've been a couple for two years and lived together for 6 months.

They've been doing the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky/Tennessee this week. Saturday, they'll be here in Bloomington. Hey! It's Little 5 Weekend.

The boy has asked me to go out for a beer Saturday afternoon because he wants to ask me a question.

What's he gonna ask me?

How do I respond?

Congrats, bubarooni!

I've accepted that Google and others 'spy' on many of our communications, but I just observed another coinkydink. I made a comment here yesterday that mentioned 'patch Madras' and this evening on Facebook I had a sponsored ad for patch Madras shorts.

Similar events have occurred from audio scrapes in the past: a brand of golf ball that I've never played popping up after I discussed it with a friend, and an acquaintance who was mentioned in a conversation was suggested as a FB friend later that evening.

Hmm...

Do you love my daughter?

I've raised her as a Princess. Will you treat her as a Princess?

Will you work your ass off to ensure she lives as a Princess?

Will you ensure that all your girls are 6 feet tall and play middle in VOLLEYABALL in high school?

With 3 to 6 months I might've been able to figure this out on my own.

GUS

Bubarooni, I think he wants to know if you will help the young couple move into a 4th floor walk-up in Wriggleyville. Or pay for the labor, like last time.
Congratulations and good work as a Father.

Damnit Gus! I just did that in November for the 2nd floor walk-up just outside of Wrigleyville.

Come to think of it, that'd be cheaper....

I like stephanies's idea.

I used a FN-FAL Short Barrel to make the same point about 6 years ago at Prom and haven't lived it down yet.

Somebody has done this before.

JUICY MULLETT told us that the "This is MAGA COUNTRY" assault, was committed by WHITE PEOPLE.
It was truly a MIRACLE that JUICY SMOLLAY'S SUBWAY SAMMMMMICH survived the RACIAL and HOMOPHOBIC attack. Ironically, "the rope" used in the attempted lynching is recorded on film and receipts, as being bought and paid for, by BLACK MEN. Who knew and were PAID by JUICY SMOLLAY!!!!

bubarooni:

You can ask him if he's ever heard of Thermomix, because I bet Clarice would be happy to help with the wedding.

Don't worry! There's no rulebook for this. I assume you're not going to say no, so I'd suggest that you give him a cheerful yes, along with the one most valuable piece of advice on marriage that anyone ever gave you. Then just settle down over your beers and enjoy having a chance to get to know each other better, man to man, for the very short time you'll be on our own without the ladies. It might actually be fun! Congratulations!

GUS

Narciso, what is truly crazy, is that we normal work a day, tax paying, educated, traditional Americans' actually even consider the FUCKING NONSENSE this vapid BITCH SPEWS. Where does her expertise derive from???
She is/was a FULL COMMIE CONTESTANT on....Who wants to be a LYING HACK DEMOGOGUE. The MFM slobbering all over her non-stop CRAP, illustrates, that the MFM has ZERO RELATIONSHIP to JOURNALISM. The MFM is RETARDED MILLENIALS spewing the PROPAGANDA that they were REQUIRED to REGURGITATE since KINDERGARTEN.

Gentlejim

Bubarooni,
I just had that conversation with a young man Sunday. I kept it pretty simple: love, respect, support, and you better never fucking hurt her. I didn’t have to show any firearms or mention where I’ve already dug holes. :)

Narciso79

Yes it's a given gus, people like her ran the firing squad in Cuba or as with celia Sanchez and vilma Espinosa suggested who would be eligible


What is the Law here, as far as I con figure no publisher has been convicted for what they pronted.

GUS

Narciso, I don't even dignify that the VAPID BITCH has a point vis a vis FREEDOM of the COMMIE PRESS.
The first amendment guarantees, FREEDOM of RELIGION, FREEDOM of SPEECH, FREEDOM of the PRESS, and FREEDOM of ASSEMBLY and REDRESS of GRIEVANCES.

You are not immune from CONSEQUENCES for SPEAKING THINGS that jeopardize this NATIONS SECURITY. You cannot find, or recieve classified and SECRET info, and share it openly. NOR CAN THE PRESS. NO DIFFERENCE in the text of the 1st amendment.

Narciso, I was far sicker than I would acknowledge. I was treated with antibiotics, 3 separate times.
For a day or 2, I would feel or seem better, but would revert to being quite sick. I tried to fight it mentally and physically, but I never just shut myself down and got over it. 2 months. Finally, I was left with no option, but to be admitted to the Hospital. 6 nights, and lots of IV drugs. I had to cancel my trip to FLA, and meet up with JIB and JANE et al. My band had 2 gigs scheduled. One at DISNEY EPCOT.
I owe Jack and Jane a great deal for understanding, and I have yet to speak with either.
I'm doing well, and I am getting better. Thank you.

Assange is guilty of the brazen egotistical crimes that HE COMMITTED. WIKILEAKS, is not a PERSON, it is a nom du plume for ASSANGES Enormous EGO.
What needs to be remembered here, is that ASSANGE used his power, savvy and influence, to publish and expose INFORMATION, that was not his to PUBLISH.
This SHYTE is not a game for sovereign countries, who have had their SECURITY compromised. This COMPROMISING of information is CRIMINAL. Assange has NEVER BEEN Robin Hood.
Edward Snowden is running his CAKE HOLE today. If I was in charge of AMERICAN SECURITY and the safety of the U.S.............Edward Snowden would have been DEAD a long time ago.
Bradley Manning, who supplied U.S. MILITARY intel to ASSANGE and others, was PARDONED by THE TURKEY BASTER BARRY. Why??? Bradley Manning should also have been sent to HELL, by U.S.Intel or Military.

Yes it was Assange and his associate the one played by Daniel bruhl domscheit hes the one they based the 5tb state on

Anyways milius the documentary of a real American original I saw last night on pluto.
He rewrote the Indianapolis scene in jaws with Robert shaw of course apocalypse down, they took him down for the count after red dawn, he did a few films like flight of the intruder and rough riders

GUS

Rich, there is zero doubt that ASSANGE was enjoying his JOY RIDE of unmasking any SECURE INFO that he could. Like Snowden and nearly every Millenial alive, these pieces of shit, rationalized their fun and frivolity as MORALLY JUSTIFIED.
Assange willingly lived in virtual captivity for over 7 years. That exhibits a ton of self absorbed HUBRIS. There are many many determined and strange actors, that would go to their grave for a useless cause. Not to diagnose Assange, but the DUDE is a CRIMINAL and a NUT.
