Sorry to go off topic so quickly, but there was a gas main explosion and a huge fire at Kansas City’s iconic Country Club Plaza, and I have to share these FIRST THREE comments in response to Yahoo’s coverage:

Damn it! Now is the time to ban cars!

BAN GAS, these explosions are an epidemic, children might be killed. Mass casualties are possible. Gas is not even guaranteed by the constitution, GET RID OF GAS.

Looks like we need to ban gas mains and cars

It’s true, gas is not guaranteed by the Constitution. Hard to argue against that.

I just checked back on PJ media to an article claiming that there was no voter suppression to see how people (are continuing) to react to my point that it’s Republicans who caused it, and that it’s a serious flaw that America is the only non-totalitarian country that has partisan officials in charge of voting.

The reaction: The website deleted the whole thread with some 30 comments and replaced it with a single comment.

Problem solved!

“There are 11 million people living here illegally,” he said. “We are not going to get enough buses to deport them.”

Some audience members shouted out their disapproval.

One man yelled that only guns would discourage illegal immigration. Another man complained that illegal immigrants should never be able to become citizens or vote. A third man said illegal immigrants were illiterate invaders who wanted free government benefits.

McCain urged compassion. “We are a Judeo-Christian nation,” he said. McCain’s other town hall meeting took place in Green Valley, south of Tucson.

Here’s some thing from the Arab world that wingnuts will like:

Caracal International, the small arms subsidiary of Tawazun, Abu Dhabi’s strategic defence investment company, has introduced a new aluminium assault rifle, on show for the first time on Stand 05-A10, writes Brian M Walters.

The latest addition to the company’s already extensive product range, the CAR 816 embraces 21st century concepts in ergonomics, design and manufacturing techniques. Based on the widely used M16/ M4 system, the CAR 816 is a gas-operated piston system with a rotary bolt mechanism in the 5.56x45mm NATO calibre. The new weapon is available in three different barrel lengths and is also equipped with standard interfaces for the pistol grip and butt stock, providing users with the highest modularity.

The barrel is of cold-forged chromium molybdenum steel with optional chrome plate inside the upper and lower receiver, as well as the hand guard, each made of high-strength aluminium.

Caracal’s current product range includes full-, compact- and subcompact-sized pistols, as well as 9mm carbines and sniper rifles in various calibres. In addition it offers a wide range of accessories for its products such as key-locks, quick-loaders and specially designed sight systems. To ensure that its customer’s needs are met, Caracal provides basic and advanced tactical shooting training and also carries out turnkey weapons maintenance services.


They look good, that’s sure.

Copernicus and the Church: What the history books don’t say

Unlike Galileo and other controversial astronomers, however, Copernicus had a good relationship with the Catholic Church. It may come as a surprise, considering the Church banned Copernicus’ “Des revolutionibus” for more than 200 years. Copernicus was actually respected as a canon and regarded as a renowned astronomer. Contrary to popular belief, the Church accepted Copernicus’ heliocentric theory before a wave of Protestant opposition led the Church to ban Copernican views in the 17th century.

Well, there are ways to use robots for farm tasks. But that takes greater education on the part of the farmer, which Bryan Fischer opposes for fear that it might lead to dancing.

I wasn’t really interested in anything michael totten when he was there, and gawking at the tea party derp on their front page/tattler.

I noticed, long ago, that they had a Glen Beck University type section of videos, propagandizing tea party economics and “freedom” and God knows whatever other derp, I couldn’t bring myself to watch any of the videos (with our virtual president Bill Whittle and other creepy “luminaries”).

Declining minimum wage chart.

From that chart, one could infer that the way to get the maximum buying-power value out of the minimum wage is to ensure that a large percentage of people who would likely be employed in minimum-wage jobs are involuntarily conscripted into military service during the peak of a war from which they may or may not return.

Given his words during and after his response to the State of the Union, he really wants to pass a real reform. But he needs to do it while keeping his electoral coalition together and part of that is working to keep Obama’s fingerprints off of the compromise bill.

Some few might, but too many are Know-Nothings concerned with purity and not victory. Which is why Rubio courts ‘Caribbean Latinos’, to expand the GOP coalition in Florida enough to reduce the Know-Nothing’s influence.

The question is, how much of his ideals and principles is he willing to compromise just to get a bill that the GOP will accept.

Josh Marshall has an interesting take on the whole thing.

Both sides want a bill. They actually want the same bill — or at least they’ve both signed on to the same bill. But there’s the problem, a political problem. Establishment Republicans feel they must support the immigration bill the President supports. But they need to convince the base of their party that they fought him like crazy to get it passed. That’s a challenge.

So we’re now treated to the spectacle of Senators like Marco Rubio and others straining to find some big point of disagreement with the president to pivot off of even though it’s almost impossible to find something to disagree about. Yes, there are some points of divergence. But they are all the sorts of minor differences — not ones of principle — that are easy to accomodate when there’s any interest in doing so.

The establishment really isn’t the problem. They’re aware of reality- that the party cannot be seen as hostile to Latino voters especially. However, you’ve got others who aren’t in the establishment at all and come from probably bright red states where they’re fairly safe anyhow. I hope something passes but I have to admit that I’m skeptical given what I heard about McCain today. The base I think is going to raise a shit fit regardless of what happens.

The argument that guns are useful for self defense is a totally valid one.

when lincoln was alive, he was called a hairy baboon, a tyrant, a “black” republican, and was accused of wanting the federal government to mandate mixing of the ‘races’

these days we know about this if we trouble to read about peripheral issues of the politics of the time which are now relatively obscure

and that will be the fate of these morons

re: #82 stabby

The argument that guns are useful for self defense is a totally valid one.

It isn’t made as often because it’s not based in the constitution and therefore there’s no GUARANTEE that congress or any level of government will honor it. But it’s a totally valid argument, and it’s part of the argument over rape and gun rights.

Yes, but there’s no statewide emergency in Colorado that requires women to run and get CCWs in order to fend of rapists. Most rape victims know their rapist. I seriously doubt a young woman would get a CCW and shoot someone she thought was her friend as he begins to rape her. That would require being on the wire all the time and ready to draw a weapon on her friend who is now attacking her like Dirty Harry. Not gonna happen. CCWs are still available for most people in Colorado and will remain as such even after this bill that passed tonight moves ahead. There was no bans on semi-auto weapons included.

The most was a limit of 15 rounds per magazine. Frankly, it probably won’t make much of a dent since crazy people will still be crazy people. You can fire off a semi-auto and reload another 15 round magazine in seconds. There are new background check requirements but as we’ve seen before you can pass those and still go berserk at any moment because humans are frail creatures controlled by a rather complicated CPU composed of a meat like substance.

There’s a semi famous case of a serial rapist from Colorado that used to sneak into women’s homes and rape them in the dead of night. How is having a hand gun going to stop that? It’s different if they’re being stalked and know their lives are in danger. Otherwise what? You wake up and someone is on top of you and then go to grab your gun from the night stand drawer?

Exactly. Someone linked to an article explaining the fallacy of this thought too. Pointed out that just about half of rape victims are under the age of 18 too. I mean every situation’s going to be different. Acting like “if only someone had a gun” I think is naive thinking at the very least.

The joy of wingnuts devouring the Republican elite: WWE has a new tea party/wingnut antagonist called “Zeb Colter” who spends his time running down immigrants, especially Mexicans, and he comes complete with a Gadsen flag and various accouterments.

Anyway, on their show last night the WWE announcers mentioned (derisively) that the fans of Colter were the Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Alex Jones types - yes they mentioned those names explicitly.

Sure enough, today on Infowars the Alex Jones crowd is complaining:

[…]

This is part of the divide and conquer tactic of cultural subversion to manufacture racial division and to characterize the Tea Party, conservatives, libertarians, opponents of uncontrolled illegal immigration and constitutionalists as racist, extremist radicals who should be pushed to the fringes of the political discourse.

Now the demonization runs so deep that it’s even being bolstered by WWE wrestling.

The fact that WWE is owned by Vince and Linda McMahon, who are part of the Republican establishment, also tells us a lot about how grass roots conservatives and libertarians are viewed by those near the top of the power structure.

[…]

Also Jones was on someone’s show (I think Piers Morgan) ranting about this WWE character.

I wonder how far Vince McMahon is going to take this character? Is this his way of finding someone to blame for his wife’s second loss?

Also, apparently some Fox News show picked up on this WWE character and whined about it also.

Sure enough, the Brats are whining:
WWE SCORCHES TEA PARTY CHARACTER AS RACIST

And of course Twitchy whines in too:
WWE’s racist Tea Party villain as realistic as pro wrestling

Let the wingnuts and the rich-boy Republicans fight it out, I say.

Here’s the PrisonPlanet video with some of the WWE video - note that WWE has been sweeping up all content on Youtube since before Linda’s last campaign really got underway, but the PrisonPlanet video uses only a short segment that is probably allowable under copyright laws. At around 1:34 you can hear the WWE commentators mentioned the wingnut radio host names, and Michael Cole makes it a point to mention Alex Jones twice:

Vince McMahon is probably producing Cole directly via headsets, so we can be pretty sure this is coming from McMahon himself.

Not sure what to make of that, my only guess is that baseball probably has the oldest viewership which I realize isn’t fair because old doesn’t necessary mean conservative and vice versa.

I think we’ve all known someone like that in our lives. That’s what the wingnuts remind of when it comes to humor. They can have people like Limbaugh call a woman a slut because he doesn’t like what she’s doing politically but their movements are off limits for sppofing. Of course, if you ask me, the Tea Party wrote its own parody with all the throwback colonial garb they wore. Note to TP.

When I complained about that, there was a bit of an argument and, as is usual on PJ Media, I was banned from the thread in time to let everyone else think they got the last word in.

No surgery required, but she broke both bones, right near the ankle. The smaller bone completely broken through, but a clean break, the other one had a little knobby bit of it break off and they were worried that’d need surgery but it reattached okay. She was in a splint-cast (they couldn’t do a real cast because the swelling was too high) for three weeks, then in a walking boot for a long, long time.

We’re in a 4th floor walkup. That was probably the hardest part. First week she had to get down and scoot up on her butt, one step at a time. Her arms got pretty buff.

The smaller bone completely broken through, but a clean break, the other one had a little knobby bit of it break off and they were worried that’d need surgery but it reattached okay. She was in a splint-cast (they couldn’t do a real cast because the swelling was too high) for three weeks, then in a walking boot for a long, long time.

We’re in a 4th floor walkup. That was probably the hardest part. First week she had to get down and scoot up on her butt, one step at a time. Her arms got pretty buff.

Ouch. Much worse than mine. What happened?

Ouch. Much worse than mine. What happened?

We were practicing tennis— our friend is into it so we were trying to get into it too, I actually quite liked it— on an outside court on the university campus. There was a patch of slimy leaf mold/algae something on one side that someone hadn’t cleaned up. It looked like dirt. It turned out to be very, very slippery, as she found when running full speed to return an errant hit by me. When she stepped on it one leg went out from under her and the other folded under her and her full weight went down on it.

And of course immediately some jackass ran over and stood with his hands on his hips and said “That’s slippery”. Yeah, thanks, brainianc.

And because this was on the university campus, she didn’t want to sue even though it was obviously negligent because it might get political and interfere with her graduation etc.

So I guess some people are cool with making a page titled What type of Republican are you? which links to a chart showing different types of human feces. Classy. Very mature. Think about it. Replace “Republican” with “Democrats.” Replace “Republican” with “Muslim.” Would that be OK then?

Crikey. Mine folded under too but it was on the front step so my rear end did some cushioning. Still, hurt like mad that very second. She must have gone down pretty hard. The pain isn’t that bad as it was the first two weeks. I am getting some of that weird zapping from I guess the nerves regrouping in places.

18 Year Old Girl Accidentally Shot in Head By Toddler

When sheriff’s deputies arrived at a home, they discovered 18 year old Emily Allen shot in the head. It appeared the bullet entered her forehead and exited the top of the head. EMS responded to the scene. Emily was alert and talking as she was taken to Bay Medical/Sacred Heart hospital.

Deputies say at that time the 2 year old boy discovered a 38 caliber pistol under the mattress and took the gun and accidentally shot the teen.

And yet there was that idiotic pro-gun-for-self-defense woman claiming a 3 year old couldn’t pull a trigger.

There’s also this:

Nearly half of 8-12 year old boys will pull the trigger on a gun they found.

Twenty-nine groups of boys (n= 64) took part in the study. The mean age of participants was 9.8 years. Twenty-one of the groups (72%) discovered the handgun (n = 48 boys); 16 groups (76%) handled it (n = 30 boys). One or more members in 10 of the groups (48%) pulled the trigger (n = 16 boys). Approximately half of the 48 boys who found the gun thought that it was a toy or were unsure whether it was real. Parental estimates of their child’s interest in guns did not predict actual behavior on finding the handgun. Boys who were believed to have a low interest in real guns were as likely to handle the handgun or pull the trigger as boys who were perceived to have a moderate or high interest in guns. More than 90% of the boys who handled the gun or pulled the trigger reported that they had previously received some sort of gun safety instruction.

Point of clarification from a former newspaperman: the White House is a beat, the WH press corps are beat reporters. A “beat” is a reporter’s area of specialization: police beat, education beat, etc.

Maybe the tweet means to replace the “expert” WH press corps with a rotating crew of general assignment reporters, i.e., those who don’t yet have beats. Sounds like a colossally stupid idea from a journalistic standpoint.

“Is this Parents Magazine?” Biden said. “I have Parents Magazine in my home. I’ve never heard anybody in Parents Magazine ask these kinds of questions.”

I think the rule should be locked and unloaded, when kids are around. Redundancy. Because you will eventually forget the lock or the kid will figure out how to open it, or you will eventually leave it loaded or the kid will figure out where the ammunition is. Even then it’s not really safe and if you don’t have an actual need for the gun, if you live in a safe neighborhood, you’re putting your kids at more risk by having it.

By now, most folks should be familiar with the Chuck Hagel nomination and the kerfuffle over his refusal to release any and all information relating to the “Friends of Hamas” group. Well, there’s a good reason for that. The group doesn’t exist and the entire reason that “Friends of Hamas” is even in the vernacular is because a reporter, Dan Friedman, asked a question as to whether Hagel had met with controversial groups and proposed names were so over-the-top, so linked to terrorism in the Middle East, that it was clear that Friedman was talking hypothetically and hyperbolically.

Well, the folks who took the hyperbole and ran with it at Breitbart basically took the questions out of context and began running the malicious smear campaign against Hagel.

We know Pope Benedict is stepping down and will soon be replaced by a new Pope. The chosen few who are selecting the next pope from amongst their number have quite the task ahead of them.

Dealing with the sex abuse scandals in the US and Europe are among them. Pinning the blame on gay priests, however, isn’t going to solve the problem. One of the Cardinals who is among the leading candidates, Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Turkson (who would be the first black Pope if selected), thinks the problem is due to having too many gay priests in the US and Europe - and that the problem isn’t as bad in Africa because society doesn’t look favorably on homosexuality.

“African traditional systems kind of protect or have protected its population against this tendency,” he said. “Because in several communities, in several cultures in Africa homosexuality or for that matter any affair between two sexes of the same kind are not countenanced in our society.”

Never mind that there is no evidence that homosexuals are abusers in any greater numbers than heterosexual men, the Church’s problems aren’t just the widespread abuses, but the coverup.

It’s the coverup of the abuse by shifting priests from one location to another, thwarting law enforcement actions, stonewalling, etc., that is the core problem with the Church, not that there are homosexual priests (or too many of them as Turkson believes).

To me, the comments indicate a level of denial that is crippling to the Church’s long term survival in Europe and North America, and it’s one that will also undermine the health of the church elsewhere.

Cue the angry tweets from the Paultards and Neo-Confederate idiots. It looks like Virginia won’t mint its own currency after all:

The U.S. dollar will remain the only legal tender in the commonwealth for now. The Virginia Senate today killed a House proposal that would have established a joint subcommittee to study the feasibility “of a metallic-based monetary unit” as an alternative to the dollar.

The cost of the study was estimated at $17,440.

After lawmakers on both sides of the aisle urged the defeat of House Joint Resolution 590, sponsored by Del. Robert G. Marshall, R-Prince William, the Senate dispatched the resolution on a voice vote.

Marshall had suggested that the state create its own currency to compete with the dollar. “It would be an additional vehicle of trade and commerce,” he said in an interview earlier this month.

Marshall’s proposal, which the House had passed by a two-thirds vote, attracted national notoriety because the Republican had said that he wanted to prepare Virginia for the impact of a major financial meltdown, caused by hyperinflation, cyber attacks on banks and the Federal Reserve’s increasing control over the nation’s money supply.

The papal electorate is overwhelmingly European:

Africa 11
Asia & Middle East 11
Europe 61
Oceania 1
Americas 33

I wish they’d go Fabian

Eusebius of Caesarea (Church History, VI. 29) relates how the Christians, having assembled in Rome to elect a new pope, saw a dove alight upon the head of Fabian, a layman and stranger to the city, who was thus marked out for this dignity and was at once proclaimed bishop by acclamation, although there were several famous men among the candidates for the vacant position.

Rotating people in from the politics desk or the foreign affairs desk seems perfectly fine to me. The corps is a little moribund, but so is all journalism. I’m willing to try a lot of things to try to change the culture it’s gotten.

One of the big problems with the WH press corps is its parochialism. So few of them ever go outside the government “bubble,” so to speak, that they seldom judge politicians from a more distanced perspective. Or, to put it another way, they get so close to the pols that they forget they’re supposed to be independent observers, not part of the problem.

So, yeah, some stirring of the pot would bring in fresh perspectives, and maybe more stringent questioning of the politicians, but replacing the pros with general assignment reporters, who are generally youngsters just starting in the business, would be a mistake.

Bahrain says Iran, Hezbollah behind “terror cell”

Bahrain has accused Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and the Lebanese Hezbollah of setting up a militant cell to assassinate public figures in the Gulf Arab kingdom and attack its airport and government buildings.

Bahraini authorities said on Sunday they had arrested eight Bahrainis in the group, with links to Iran, Iraq and Lebanon.

In a statement published by the official Bahrain News Agency late on Tuesday, Bahrain’s head of public security said the cell was part of a group called the “Imam Army” which included Bahrainis at home and abroad and members of other nationalities.

It claimed an officer from Iran’s Revolutionary guard, codenamed ‘Abu Nasser’ paid the suspects $80,000 to take photos of ‘sensitive locations’, and collect information on public figures in the country.

What’s the difference? Government is elected by society - it’s one way we have of deciding who gets help and who doesn’t. This woman is apparently relying on the fact that conservatives are OK with helping people who look like them, but not those damn inner-city “takers”. Why is she not being accused of freeloading, or being told to “get a job”?

Society has the duty to help the less fortunate, BUT, there are other ways, as this lady seems to be trying

Yes, but since you admit that society has the duty to help the less fortunate, it’s ironic in the extreme that the tcot people would be up in arms if you suggested a penny tax on millionaires to restore the food programs that are about to be yanked from poor mothers and children.

Since Menino took office, he has easily dispatched challenges by three city councilors: Peggy Davis-­Mullen, whom he defeated by more than 50 percentage points; Maura Hennigan by 35 percentage points; and Flaherty by 15 percentage points.

White was a trip! One year he wanted a huge increase in the property tax rates, something in the order of 8%. What he did was have his cronies on the city council propose a 15% increase. It was the talk of the town. Pleas to the Mayor from the people to intercede with the council . “You must do something Mayor White, to stop this from happening”.

Why should anyone else support her again? She should practice what she preaches and be self-sufficient. Or go to your family and ask for money with a promise to pay it back once you get paid. Isn’t that how conservatives do things?

The reason she can’t make ends meet is working part time for sub minimum wage, according to the wingnut self-help business model, so has to rely on donations.

Pfft. If she’s working for less than minimum wage, why does she have luxuries like an internet connection, or a computer, or electricity or AC? Taxpayers shouldn’t be subsidizing her lavish lifestyle. Bootstraps for everybody!

In all seriousness, though - just imagine if her two jobs provided a living wage. She might not need those donations. And I’m less than sympathetic to people who rant and rave against “moochers and takers” that are a drain on society then they go online and beg for money. WTF.

Just finished listening to the audio/podcast version of Rachel Maddow’s run-up to the Iraq War doc. Since no one asked me for my opinions, here they are:

1. I didn’t really learn anything new, but the sheer audacity of the Bush administration is breathtaking. Given the damage he did to both the American and Iraqi peoples, hearing Bush insist it was the right choice is infuriating.

I had forgotten how much his voice grates on me, with its combo of folksy, condescension and arrogance.

2. Is Maddow correct about LBJ lying about the Gulf of Tonkin? Need to look that one up, as I hadn’t heard it before.

3. I’m still angry at the “godless libruls” like Kerry and Hillary for supporting this. It was like giving Charles Manson keys to a gun shop and saying, “All right, Chuck, don’t you do anything crazy now, you scamp!”

4. I know this is going to sound condescending, but I still don’t understand how people bought the whole WMD story. My big problem at the time was the Administration initially pushing the Al Queda angle.

Bin Laden hated everybody who wasn’t Wahabi. To think he would work wiht Saddam just didn’t make sense. If Bush and Cheney were pushing this, why were they to be trusted on anything else?

My big thing is that Bush and Cheney absolutely should be brought up on some kind of charges. Not that it’ll ever happen.

And when you listen to conservatives pushing for an attack on Iran, I just get depressed. Because sooner or later, these loons will get control of government again.

360 lawhawk  Wed, Feb 20, 2013 8:49:29am

Sequester was supposed to be the fiscal equivalent of MAD. Neither GOP nor Democrat would want it because its austerity measures would severely curtail economic growth during what has been a modest recovery from the recession and real estate/fiscal market collapses.

It was supposed to result in both sides coming up with cuts that were more targeted and focused on areas where there is real fat to trim. Instead, the GOP went all or nothing and refuses to allow for tax hikes or loophole closures while pushing for cut to entitlement program after entitlement program.

The alternatives proposed by Democrats have been a combination of hikes and cuts, and most Americans want to see the combination approach.

So, it’s not without irony that the GOP is busy bashing Obama for the sequester when they were in on the deal and have refused to budge on their no-tax nonsense.

They own the sequester just as much as Democrats do.

And if this was any other President other than Obama, the GOP would be crowing about how the president (or GOP for that matter) has cut federal spending and cut the deficit as a percentage of GDP more than any president since Ike (and which has essentially held the budget flat during his term).

Consider the tenor of the time. The country was still reeling from 9/11, the media was fully on board with Moar War, and anyone who even questioned the wisdom of going to war with Iraq was called a terrist sympathizer.

And the Bush administration had free run of every media outlet in the country at that time. They used it to relentlessly push their propaganda, and the media pretty much got out of the way and let them bloviate to their hearts’ content. Anti-war voices were few and far between in those days because the news nets didn’t want to piss off the White House and risk being called anti-American.

One party wanted a clean debt ceiling increase and an unconnected grand bargain. The other side demanded, “Give us matching discretionary spending cuts to debt ceiling increases, or the country gets it.” The super committee & sequestration was the ransom that second party finally accepted to back off shooting their hostage.

I will add one more point. “Trusted Source” is the term. Specifically, when the government says it has information that is classified so cannot be shown in detail, most of us trust the government to not be lying.

It’s that, by the way, for which I most condemn the Bush-Cheney administration. Part of the GOP has striven for years to destroy trust in the government, and that was a major blow. That trust extends to a lot of other things, and in the end it’s that trust that determines the existence of our nation as it was. It’s of a part of the reason I despise Ronald Reagan.

Opponents of Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel are fuming in the aftermath of sloppy work by their allies that has backfired and risks turning their cause into a joke.

The bumble: A thinly sourced claim that Hagel had taken money from a heretofore unheard of group called “Friends of Hamas,” floated by the conservative website Breitbart.com, and sourced to Capitol Hill.

“This sort of thing drives me crazy because it undermines legitimate concerns about Sen. Hagel, his views and financial associations,” said a Senate Republican aide involved with the anti-Hagel efforts. “In this business we deal in facts or the pursuit of facts and making up groups like the Friends of Hamas distracts us from legitimate questions as to what private foreign foundations and wealthy foreign individuals are contributing to the Atlantic Council or investing in Sen. Hagel’s firms.”

Even odds that “Senate Republican aide” is the same one that leaked the original smear to breitbart.

Good advice

Also, get to a store and buy a few gallon jugs of water. You can use it to replace the water when you flush a toilet or of course, use it for drinking/ cooking/ washing

And once you have a few empty plastic gallon containers you can refill them with tap water from work or elsewhere. (Assuming it’s not a long trudge with heavy containers.)

My brother did that for years. His well water was heavy enough with sulfides and such that it was pretty icky for cooking and drinking. So he shuttled milk crates carrying four plastic gallons of water home from work all the time. Partially due to not liking the taste of the stuff that came out of his water softening system that cleaned the well water.

If everybody agrees sequester is a mistake, instead of arguing whose idea it was, why not repeal and revert to regular budget process?

Because a “regular” budget process is no longer possible under current GOP leadership, that is how sequestration came to be proposed in the first place: as a threat to get people to behave like adults.

Beck: Video Games Were Responsible for Sandy Hook Massacre

On last night’s television program, Glenn Beck explained that it wasn’t Adam Lanza’s mental health problems or access to assault weapons that were responsible for the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, but rather Lanza’s infatuation with video games.

“Our sons and daughters are becoming desensitized to right and wrong,” Beck warned, and “video games are a gateway drug for our kids and instead of a high, they get a numbness, they get an indifferent heart and a mind that cannot tell the difference between fiction and reality. This is medical fact, this is not crazy theory.

This is the problem the establishment is going to have. You’ve got many in the GOP base who see anything on making the naturalization process easier and not mass deportations as somehow treachery. Now, McCain did end up being the nominee in 2008 despite this but that was before the GOP base discovered Barack Obama and how much they hate anything he will do. I’m not worried about the GOP establishment on immigration reform. They while they are doing it to save their political asses realize its necessity. The base and the nutters(read Rand Paul types in Congress) are what the biggest roadblock will be.

That’s not cool. If you’re having a problem with someone, that’s not the way to handle it.

Did he reveal any personal information?

re: #485 Interesting Times

Glad to see you acknowledge it. Outing the contents of private emails is a bad, bad path to travel (I’m sure you remember the ex-LGF member who did that). If nothing else, it makes it so that someone wouldn’t ever trust you again in that respect. Definitely not worth whatever temporary reward it brings.

I was never going to do that. I shouldn’t have threatened it either.

People do sometimes take advantage though of the disparity between what they say to you in email and what they say on LGF, and having been a victim of this several times, I felt I had to draw a line in the sand, ironically enough :)

Won’t work. We’re through. I blocked both Ice and Jimmah. This is unacceptable.

It was egregious, but not necessarily unforgivable. That’s totally up to you. Stranger things have been forgiven.

Maybe, but right now I’m pretty damn well fucking pissed off and have been holding back believe it or not. This is completely out of control.

Actually, I hadn’t read the comment above your previous one when I posted. Oh, well. Maybe after some sobering up….

Especially considering I thought these people were my friends.

You are the one who started attacking us. Try to be honest mate. Even the other other day when you were making a complete arse of your self and ending up in the bottom ten we didn’t downding you. Because we considered you a friend.

Go to your respective corners and wait for the bell.

Attacking you? All I was attacking was that stupid page and the idea behind it. That’s not attacking you but an attack of a mindset with regards to demonizing a group of people. You’re the one who personally attacked me and are continuing to do as such. I logged off and lurked and saw that you had posted some other personal exchange I had with Ice. That’s about as low as you can get buddy. You came back and posted whatever personal information you have after that very same page was deleted. Yet you’re going to claim that I personally attacked you because I was focused on the premise of demonization? Seriously? I have not said one thing negative about you only with respect to feeling let down with this revelation of your sinister dark side.

The deleted comment in this thread contained no personal information - just a rehash of what you already saw in the now-deleted Page. Just want to make that clear, nothing’s been revealed that could “out” your offline identity.

OK, thanks. Still, it sets a precedent. There is no trust here anymore.

Seriously, please don’t comment under those conditions - posting while drunk/high/angry/stressed leads to bad things, bad places, and crappy consequences.
