Tuesday Open Thread


I got a little carried away watching the season premiere of The Bachelorette last night. It will be a while before I’m in any shape to write a new post.


I swear I’m never gonna drink again as long as I live. This time I mean it.

    Based on new evidence, Jack Cashill gives us a glimpse into Trayvon’s life. Definitely not a life the media gave us via Mom’s attorneys …..


    • elliesmom says:

      Did you wade through any of the comments? Some of the ones about all of the ways Trayvon and Obama could be father and son are funny.

    • Really strange how this agrees with so much of the actual “evidence” given at the time, and goes against the prosecutorial “spin”.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I just heard the judge said none of the “bad boy” things will be admissable in court. It’s a shame that AG Angela Corey and her prosecuters will now get away with portraying sweet, innocent Trayvon.

        I guess I could see her point, even the vilest gangsta’ thug shouldn’t be murdered for just being a jerk. Still seems unfair to GZ’s self-defense case. Maybe Witness #6 will help his case? (saw someone beating the crap out of someone that night).

        • myiq2xu says:

          I never did a murder trial or worked in Florida but that ruling is consistent with my experience in California. The evidence is more prejudicial than relevant. Of course if the prosecution opens the door by introducing character evidence that Trayvon was a innocent angel then the defense gets a chance to rebut it.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Thanks myiq, was hoping you’d chime in. I think there’s a lot of concern, if GZ is acquitted, the Sharptonistas will burn down the city of Sanford.

    I don’t drink in quantity, mostly because I don’t do hangovers. I tried it several times when I was younger and decided I had better ways to make myself miserable. I do love to have a couple drinks, though. My husband is another story, he treats drinking like it’s a darn competition. He can’t just have two or three, he’s out to prove something. He hasn’t drank for about five years now, since the last bachelor party he went to. He’d lost his keys so he rang the doorbell. When I opened the door, he started to tilt and fell, splitting the hedge in half. He’s big, so I had no intention of trying to catch him and no hope of getting him into the house, so I just shut the door. He slept in the hedge and one guy slept in the yard, because he couldn’t remember where he lived. I think their hangovers lasted longer then the wedding they were celebrating.

    One of the things a narcissist does best is manipulate. When caught red-handed they cry. http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/302053-obama-embraces-consoler-in-chief-role-to-remain-above-the-fray I think I’m going to barf.

  4. Lola-at-Large says:

    Haha! I was wondering from some of your comments last night. I’ve got the Book Club interview with Anita Finlay scheduled for two this afternoon (your time). VM, Denise, and I will keep an eye for any news-worthy stories in the meantime. Sleep it out klown.

    • elliesmom says:

      Until I saw this morning’s post, I thought he was talking about gang initiations and “pulling a train”. I’ve never watched “The Bachelorette”, and I didn’t realize she was supposed to have sex with all of them before she decided. Maybe narrow it down to two or three? πŸ˜‰

      • myiq2xu says:

        Okay, maybe I exaggerated a little. But this show was weird. One guy didn’t wear a shirt, another wore a suit of armor, there was a magician and one guy that was such a perv that she asked him to leave about halfway thru the show.

      Well you made me Bing naked man and babies and up came a bunch of funny links to blogs. Did find it’s part of a sculpture exhibit in an Oslo, Norway park with some fuzzy info on the sculpturer, I think he calls it evil genius ?

    • elliesmom says:

      I don’t think lawmakers should face recalls over votes they make in the legislature. I think when they “come up for review”, you vote to fire them. My congresscritters seldom vote the way I want them to because I’ve chosen to live where my views are not often the majority opinion. If I could get enough signatures for a successful recall to happen, I could probably get enough people to vote against them next time. And if I couldn’t handle being “the loyal opposition”, I’d move.

      • myiq2xu says:

        I agree. Recall should be like impeachment – for misconduct, not for policy disagreements.

        I said the same thing about Wisconsin.

      • I sorta agree, except possibly an exception should be made for lying sacks of cagada who stand in your living room and say one thing and then drive across town and within 30 minutes say the exact opposite. Those gave up their right to be respected due to inherent lying illegitimacy-ism

        recall in California several years ago cost a bundle and gave us Arnold. sometimes people should be careful what they wish for

    • DeniseVB says:

      In Cashill’s article I linked above, it said Trayvon was a student of MMA fighting, so he and his friends beat each other up often πŸ˜€

  7. votermom says:

    Police in Paris have obtained video footage of a bearded man “praying” shortly before he stabbed a French soldier in the neck, fuelling suspicions it was an Islamist terror attack.

    • elliesmom says:

      There’s a column in the WSJ today by Aayan Hirsi Ali about what moderate Muslims need to do to help stop the violence. It’s worth a read, but I think one of the comments hits the nail on the head. The person said moderate Muslim leaders are afraid if they speak out against the more militant Muslims, they will find themselves targets for beheading themselves. Perhaps even more so than the rest of us non-believers. Who is the greater threat to the jihad? The person who tries to stop it from without, or the person who tries from within?

      • votermom says:

        That’s the reason good Germans kept silent too. Didn’t want to be the next target.

      • votermom says:

        link to article
        From the comments, I though this was a pov I am coming to agree with

        You have missed the point the author is making. She says that basic Islamic scripture can be used to support acts of terror. Also, as pointed out by many in this comment section, the life of Mohammed supports actions of Islamists.

        To reform a religion is to remove false doctrine, teachings or understanding about the basic message of it’s founder. If you reform back to the teachings and the life of Christ you have the Christian reformation of love and sacrifice for others. If you reform back to the teachings of Mohamed and life / model, you have murder, conquest, terror, child brides, and everything that an Islamist does. This is all basic to the life and teachings of Mohamed.

        You a staring at an Islamic reformation when you see a terrorists. You just don’t realize it because you have not taken the time to understand what a reformation is and the basic message of Islam and the life of Mohamed: Conquest and subjugation.

        Islamists are reformers in the same way that Martin Luther was a reformer; they desire to take the follower back on message.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Of course it’s the reason they don’t speak against the extremists, perhaps why Obama won’t either.

    lois lerner fast tracked this exemption. Isn’t that funneling money to terrorist and a criminal offense?

  12. HELENK says:


    this woman is unbelievable. If she wants to be a slave thats on her, but what gives her the right to hold other women in slavery?

  13. votermom says:

    A link to this 2010 blog post is going around today

    4 Stages of Islamic Conquest:

    Open War
    Totalitarian Theocracy

    interesting way to look at it

  15. How does Hollywood do it? Who knew that “Weekend at Bernies” was the prequel?

    Movie title coming soon: “Eternity in Saudi Arabia”.Who knew #kingabdullah and #bernielomax had so much in common? #weekend_at_bernies— 49erDweet (D) (@49erdweet) May 28, 2013

    More on Hillary movie “Rodham”. I think any one of these actresses could “play” her, and if they could pull off Hillary’s wonky lawyering days, make up would do the rest. For young pretty stars, it’s an award bait role πŸ˜€
