      It’s progs. They don’t comprehend the actual meanings of words,so simply string a bunch of tough sounding stuff together hoping some of it will stick to the … SQUIRREL! SQUIRREL!

    If some of these Republicans don’t knock it off with the sleazy, sexist attacks on Hillary Clinton they are liable to push me back into supporting her again.

    There are plenty of legitimate things to use against her. Why take the low road?

      No matter which woman enters the race or which party nominates her, there is going to be ugliness from both sides. After 2008, I’ve decided not to get my panties in a wad over it in the voting booth. If Hillary gets the nod from the Democrats, whether she gets my vote or not depends on how she stacks up against the person the Republicans nominate. She’ll get my vote or not based on the merits. The Republicans can’t behave any more badly against her than what the progs did to Sarah Palin. Both sides are full of misogynist pieces of excrement. Doesn’t mean I won’t speak out against, but there will be no sympathy vote from me.

    You get to celebrate Mother’s Day with your mom, Klown. I get to go out to dinner tonight with my Valentine. Get over it. 😉

    • The Klown says:

      Mom is going to the casino with her girlfriends tonight.

      • elliesmom says:

        My mom died before my dad did. I often wonder what kind of a widow she would have been. She relied on my dad for everything. I hope she would have been going out to the casino with her friends, too, but somehow I doubt it. When you spend your life pretending to be as helpless as she did, it’s kind of hard to stop. She thrived on being a damsel in distress. lol She turned out some kickass self-reliant kids, though.

        • 49erDweet says:

          Interesting. Since I’m male I have zippo capacity for being reflective. But my mom went first, too, and I’ve never before considered her being a widow. I think she would have been OK. She ran an extensive mail-order publishing group that subsisted on very small volunteer donations, and over the years by watching expenses managed to stay almost solvent. Dad worked but I always figured she contributed quite a bit to the household budget, and suppose she’s the one that had the most influence on my life’s choices. She always made time for me. especially when I screwed up.

    “A federal judge struck down Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage today, an historic ruling with especial resonance on Valentine’s Day. Except the history of the historic ruling isn’t exactly up to par: Judge Arenda Wright Allen claimed the Constitution declares that “all men a created equal,” which is, instead, the first line of the Declaration of Independence.”
    “Our Constitution declares that ‘all men’ are created equal. Surely this means all of us,” Judge Allen wrote on the first page of her opinion. That line opens the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence and appears nowhere in the Constitution.” This appears in the decision to to overturn the VA Same Sex Marriage Statue. Only it is in the Declaration of Independence rather than the constitution.”
    Judge Allen was confirmed by the Senate May 11, 2011. This kind of historical and legal illiteracy is appalling and this is from a %#&(*@! federal judge!

      A blog post about Venezuela

      So I want to let you know some details about what has been happening lately.

      To begin with, you should know most of the protests happening since -at least- last year in Venezuela have not been promoted or organized by political parties. There are small groups of people all over major cities protesting about many different local problems that are not being addressed by the government. Some examples I can remember right now are: domestic gas shortages (for kitchens) in many cities is forcing people to make long queues (or pay extra money) for the gas. On a week I spent in Valencia on December 2013 I spent two days, one with my father and the other with an uncle, searching for hints about where to find gas refills, and eventually buying it in two different places really overpriced and carrying it back home ourselves. Normally it’s really inexpensive, and it should be taken by truck directly to the houses. Fortunately we could pay the ‘extra money’, and we have a car to move kilometers away from home to get it, but what about the poor people, which is many? We saw so many people wandering clueless, carrying gas cylinders in small bikes… on December, when everybody usually cooks more than the average month, you’d imagine it’s particularly bad for people not to find gas.

      Me either wmcb, if hubby can’t show me he loves me the other 364 days a year why bother on Valentine’s and I’ve told him that too. I don’t need an overpriced card, overpriced flowers and I sure as hell don’t need candy. Jewelry I’ll take, but I’ll take it any day of the year I’m not picky!

      • cynic says:

        Wow, that’s exactly how I feel, and thought that there was something wrong with me. I’ve never like Valentine’s Day. (ok, maybe I did when I was little. Can’t really remember.)
        I don’t need a stinkin card. I know how he feels!

    HAHAHA. Prince William, who was helping with UK flood relief, evidently told a reporter who kept pestering him with asinine questions to put down his damn notebook and lend a hand with some fookin’ sandbags.

    Publicity stunt or not, I say GO PRINCE WILLIAM. 😀

    Hee, hee……

    The FBI had an opening for an assassin.

    After all the background checks, interviews and testing were
    done, there were 3 finalists: two men and a woman.
    the final test, the FBI agents took one of the men to a large metal door
    and handed him a gun.
    ‘We must know that you will follow your
    instructions no matter what the circumstances.
    the room you find your wife sitting in a chair ….. Kill her!!’

    The man said, ‘You can’t be serious. I could never shoot my

    The agent said, ‘Then you’re not the right man for this
    job. Take your wife and go home.’

    The second man was
    given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All
    was quiet for about 5 minutes. The man came out with tears in his eyes,
    ‘I tried, but I can’t kill my wife.’

    The agent said, ‘You don’t
    have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.’

    Finally, it
    was the woman’s turn. She was given the same instructions, to kill her
    husband. She took the gun and went into the room.
    Shots were heard, one
    after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls.
    After a few minutes, all was quiet.

    The door opened slowly and
    there stood the woman, wiping sweat from her brow.
    ‘This gun is
    loaded with blanks’ she said.
    ‘I had to kill him with the chair!’

    Happy Valentine’s Day, all !

    Sigh Tried to explain to a libertarian/anarchist that the “truly equal” society he envisions cannot exist for longer than a brief moment in time. Human beings are hierarchal and communal, by nature. Any group will arrange themselves into some semblance of strata. Always. If you have a meeting that no one is “running”, someone still arises to “run” it. That person? That’s your “govt.” Whether it be on the basis of education, most profitable businessman, perceived nobility, best warrior, most adept at manipulating public opinion, whatever, human beings will stratify. And the resulting stratification, and enforcement (even vague passive enforcement) thereof, IS “government”, whether you label it as such or not.

    I have a curious mind, and so I am willing to engage all sorts, even fringe sorts, on their ideas as to what’s the best way for society to organize itself. I find it interesting. But I have a hard time tolerating idiots who want to assume, in the face of all of human history, that society will not organize itself, if only “left alone”. That’s poppycock. It may organize itself along more organic and naturally-arising lines, depending on the populace involved. That organization may be more tolerable or less tolerable for the average person. Again, depends on the person-set. But it is GOING to organize, eventually.

    This is the whole issue that our founding fathers wrestled with. And whether one believes that they got it impeccably right, partly right, mostly right, or partly or mostly wrong makes no difference to the fact that it’s the crux of the whole problem. You can’t even have a conversation with people who deny realities of human nature. Strident Marxists, BTW, fall into this category too.

    • wmcb says:

      Maybe I’m a weird paradox. I am in many ways an individualist. But I’m smart enough to see that no group of humans, ever, anywhere, has existed as solely discrete individuals. That’s fucking madness.

      • wmcb says:

        “On the other hand”? Pah. I have dozens. I’ll wave another one tomorrow, likely. 😉

          I wish I had that OUT LOUD gift ! American Politics have me so pissed off, you and others here make me ENVIOUS of being able to express the rage so eloquently 😉

          • wmcb says:

            My husband is like me on the “speculation” bit. Today we were discussing the crappy education system. Which led Lou to jokingly quip that he favored the planarian worm system of education. So I asked what that was. Turns out that they did some experiments on these light-sensitive worms wherein they taught one set to navigate a light maze. Then they chopped them in bits, and fed them to a new set who had never run the maze. And they ran the maze. Instant education! LOL!

            So this led to further tongue-in-cheek conversation on cannibalism as education, genetic “memory”, and whether cannibal tribes who believed that eating the heart of their enemy made them stronger were onto something.

            No, we don’t advocate cannibalism, nor educational experiments looking into the benefits thereof. We’re not psychopaths. We’re just a couple of people who don’t admit to any boundaries as to what can be **discussed** as a thought experiment. Which make us kinda weird, I guess.

      Humans are social animals. We evolved to live in groups. That is why peer pressure is so effective.

      But some humans are alphas and others are betas. Most are a mix of both.

      Put 1000 total strangers on an island and they will start organizing, but there will be some individualists who won’t follow a group, and more than likely there will be multiple groups. From time to time the groups may split apart or join with other groups.

    I wish Obama didn’t start this with his (Putin Hurt My Feelings) Gay Delegation to the Olympics. Can we all just love each other for who we are as long as we’re most excellent to each other? Gah.

    • wmcb says:

      I mostly hate the hyperbole. If you want to argue that the “propogandizing to children” law is too harsh, or goes too far, then argue that. Maybe it is. But don’t pretend that it’s the equivalent of stringing gay people up on the lampposts in order to exterminate them, either.

      I personally have mixed feelings about Putin’s law. I don’t like messing with other people’s kids, regardless of the subject. I don’t like evangelical groups that try to convert kids without consulting their parents, either. Not because Christianity is bad, but because IT’S SOMEONE ELSE’S KID. If they passed a law about that, I might have reservations while at the same time being able to see the reasoning for it.

      • DeniseVB says:

        PETA used to hand out graphic slaughterhouse photos to school kids. I stopped donating to them after that. Now we have Planned Parenthood recruiting Girl Scout endorsements, so I just mostly shake my head these days. Sigh.
