    I’m feeling whimsical this morning. I’m gonna lie down and hope it passes.

    If I had known that Chrome was this much better than Firefox I would have switched a long time ago.

    • votermom says:

      Ps someone over at ace hq mentioned a SRWare Iron, based on Chrome minus the Google spying.

      • Ann says:

        I’ve used iron for years (no spyware). They are no longer updating iron, and I get “update to chrome, firefox, internet explorer” messages a lot. Still, it is my favorite browser.

      It’s like they sold you very delicious bread – but that was a long time ago, and they haven’t baked any fresh bread in a long time, and everything they’re selling you now is stale. I was happy with stale and crumbs – until I realized there was another bakery in town.

    Ted Cruz’s pants are not hemmed correctly to wear with boots. They are too long and the pants are not supposed to break over the instep when standing. They are properly hemmed at an angle to slope longer to the heel. Yes I am a boot snob. The women’s shoes are gorgeous.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Noticed that, too. But then I thought, “So what? Probably so they break better over his boots while he’s seated, but ain’t no big deal.”

    • angienc says:

      I rarely see men with properly hemmed pants any more — boots or not. The worst offenders — considering the obscene money they are paid — are male Hollywood stars at award shows. These aren’t off-the-rack/rented tuxes these jackasses are wearing: get a tailor for the love of peete! (Especially given that 90% of their “job” is looking good). The worst of these clueless, narcissitic asswipes whom I wouldn’t trust to deliver my newspaper much less take political advice from (since he can’t even hire a tailor to properly hem his pants) is George Clooney — his hems are among the most ridiculous I’ve ever seen. Really, google a full body pic of him at the 2012 Oscars — his pants are puddling around his shoes onto the red carpet!! And yet he’s consistently declared “best dressed” by the idiot media. Morons — the lot of ’em.
      Glad I got that off of my chest. 🙂

    • DeniseVB says:

      LOL, I saw this and thought of you Lulu:

      I see this in NYC all the time, only the men usually have dresses on.

  5. DeniseVB says:

    The gloves are off … candidate for U.S. Senate attacked for being *only* a high school graduate. Though she does seem more accomplished than Mr. Ivy League, Bracket Obama …… or his wife ……

    • Lulu says:

      The snobbery cult of college is in full bloom. If she had managed to go to a small state college or community junior college this asshole would be sniggering at that too. They think they are owed a public office because daddy paid for them to be admitted to an expensive diploma mill.

    • Constance says:

      This is why I think we should divide the country at the Rocky Mountains. We could cut out all the elitist snobs who are actually idiots and have a functioning new country. I know the south wouldn’t want to be with the Northeast either but that’s not my problem and I have confidence in the Souths ability to overcome the problem. You know, we could send aid to the South to help them break away.

      Of course we would be doing all of this because we are racists. Certainly not because we are sick of living in a country run by a bunch of corrupt lying elitists.

  9. The Klown says:

    The thrill is gone:

    White House officials sought valuable primetime air for a rare, impromptu Tuesday night address to tout the accomplishment of signing up more than 7 million people under the Affordable Care Act.
    But network officials refused to make the kind of accommodation they did previously for the announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed, for instance, and Obama was left instead cutting into the much smaller audiences of Ellen and other daytime shows.

    • lyn says:

      LOL. Most people would have turned off their TVs if they had to watch Obama’s ACA bullshit.

    • 49erDweet says:

      And apparently about 5mil of those signups didn’t. They were without notice programmatically “assigned” to zerocare by their states with the stroke of one key.

  10. The Klown says:

    Mozilla Burning:

    The progs don’t care what happens to Mozilla. It can live or die, they can’t be bothered about that. It doesn’t matter to them at all. They actively wanted both Chick-Fil-A and Duck Dynasty destroyed. They would probably be content to see Mozilla die too. But it doesn’t matter to them anymore. It did what they want. They will turn and attack some other target when the opportunity arises.

    The objective was not to intimidate those of us in the pundit world. On that score, the fascists’ tactic backfired — same-sex marriage supporters have been rightly appalled by all of this.

    But we aren’t the target audience.

    The target audience is people like Eich who have money, are not mainly political, and just want to use their means to make some difference. He gave $1000, six years ago, to support a referendum on the definition of marriage that ultimately passed. So he stood with the majority of voters in California. That thoughtcrime against the left’s fascist collective has cost him his job — and it has scared the hell out of anyone else contemplating donating to NOM or other groups that support traditional marriage. They justifiably fear that even the most benign move can end up costing them greatly, at some point in the future.

    And that has been the point of all this. Terrify people who do not engage in political combat every day, and therefore do not know just how savage and dishonest it has all become. Dry up funding for activist groups opposed to re-defining marriage. Persecute and blacklist one or two famous people to provide an example to others. Destroy livelihoods. Divide. Harass. Intimidate.

    My new shoes !

      Freedom Footwear

    • Constance says:

      I love those!

    • DeniseVB says:

      Would love a pair for my annual pilgrimage to DC next month to see a play (Camelot) at the Kennedy Center, visit the First Ladies wing at the Smithsonian and what time’s left, all the other museums, maybe even press my face into the WH fence to check up on our tenants.

      As cute as they are, just heard from my plantar faciitis prone feet…”Say What? G’friend don’t even go there without your heavy duty Dr Scholls inserted into your New Balance 847’s” Sigh.

      • swanspirit says:

        They are pretty comfy , I wore them to Walmart the other day . Sizes run small , so order one size bigger than you normally wear , but I bet you could fit some inserts in them ! I found them on Ebay ; did a search for Flag shoes , there are some wild ones !!

    Via Hot Air:

    Some of my colleagues are celebrating. They call Eich a bigot who got what he deserved. I agree. But let’s not stop here. If we’re serious about enforcing the new standard, thousands of other employees who donated to the same anti-gay ballot measure must be punished.

    More than 35,000 people gave money to the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that declared, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” You can download the entire list, via the Los Angeles Times, as a compressed spreadsheet. (Click the link that says, “Download CSV.”) Each row lists the donor’s employer. If you organize the data by company, you can add up the total number of donors and dollars that came from people associated with that company.

    The first thing you’ll notice, if you search for Eich, is that he’s the only Mozilla employee who gave to the campaign for Prop 8. His $1,000 was more than canceled out by three Mozilla employees who donated to the other side.

    The next thing you’ll notice is that other companies, including other tech firms, substantially outscored Mozilla in pro-Prop 8 contributions attributed to their employees. That includes Adobe, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, Sun Microsystems, and Yahoo, as well as Disney, DreamWorks, Gap, and Warner Bros.

    Thirty-seven companies in the database are linked to more than 1,300 employees who gave nearly $1 million in combined contributions to the campaign for Prop 8. Twenty-five tech companies are linked to 435 employees who gave more than $300,000. Many of these employees gave $1,000 apiece, if not more. Some, like Eich, are probably senior executives.Why do these bigots still have jobs? Let’s go get them.

      I don’t hate hippies , I am one . I used cloth diapers many years ago with a diaper service when it was given to me as a gift . Using cloth uses enormous amounts of resources , hot water soap ,hopefully bleach ; electricity etc. If you really want to go that route , stfu and get a compost toilet 😉
      Just FYI , one of my personal theories about the future is that most homes will be self sustaining individual units , each with with solar power , collected and recycled rainwater , and compost toilets. We can even collect enough energy in individual homes to power our vehicles . That would eliminate the need for most of those huge solar arrays that fry bird and bats that fly over them .

    stolen from a commenter at No Quarter

    how they got the number
    HHS notified people that they started applications for obamacare for them without their knowledge or approval

    this is bad, what else can the government sign you up for?

    Sweetest thing ever—- my nightmare pup has major mental health issues when it rains. Been raining all day. She cries. Think its because when she was born she was to put it mildly difficult so she was chained up all day everyday at the end of a yard. NEver pet or played with. Rain must have been hell for a puppy tied to a stake without any shelter. . Hundreds of dogs at the pound and my brat chose her. She is so bad. Remote controls sofas noyhing the dog will not chew. She loves bottled water and it is entertaining to watch her get the lid off and then try to drink the bottle. She is from hell. Right now sitting on my lap crying from the rain I would not trade her. Odd thing is my mangled once expensive furniture makes me smile when I see it now more than it ever did when it was unchewed. She is just so bad. Makes Marley look respectable. She wears a comfort jacket and sadly has to wear a shock collar because she barks and chases anything that moves. A leaf falling off a tree sends her into a tizzy. She is also the best dog ever.

    • WMCB says:

      One of my dogs is terrified of rain. He’s a greyhound, and raced at various tracks in Florida. I think he must’ve been left in a metal kennel on the truck or something while they had those massive thunderstorms. Any hint of wind/rain and he goes glassy-eyed and starts shaking uncontrollably. If it thunders at all he collapses and pees himself.

      But he’s a GREAT dog.

  17. mothy67 says:

    I was afraid to let the demon dog near my rabbit. Hound fro hell has torn most of my wardrobe and I know she just plays but I was afraid she’d be too rough with the bunny. Everyday she sat outside the cage playing with her so I got all of my brothers over to help me if she decided rabbit tasted good. No need they now play for hours running all over the basement. Little girl came home and said another student had said her home life was wierd. I said really baby girl you are being raised by you great gay uncle and your greatgrand parents. You have one dog that watches you like a hawk and gets fierce if anyone raises their voice to you and he was thrown out of a moving vehicle at high speed left for dead and you have a psychotic dog that thinks she is a rabbit. What is wierd about that? I know I should have been more original but all I could think to do at the time was buy a big bag of lemons and make a refreshing beverage. Turd asked me as we were squeezing lemons if it was okay if she said a bad word. Would have gone on with a speech about words are not bad blah blah blah but she stopped me and said you are an ass are we literally doing life gives you lemons you make lemonade. Smart kid.

      In my perfect world, Gutfeld’s Red Eye would be moved to the Late Night time slot and Jody’s “news” would be part of it. Now that Letterman’s on his way out, I’m surprised to see Greg’s name is popping up in the replacement discussions.

  19. helenk3 says:

    I have been thinking about this whole firefox mess. Years ago I went to work for the Phila Inquirer Newspaper. One of the questions on the employment application was Is your sex life normal?
    Today that would be unheard of. Well since the pink mafia is punishing people for their beliefs about sex, should we bring those kind of sick questions back on employment applications?

    • 49erDweet says:

      Those are the type of questions with which I have all kinds of corporate, panty-twisting fun.

      • helenk3 says:

        My first instinct was to ask “define normal”, but I chickened out because i wanted the job.
        At the time i was married and had three kids. That might not be normal for some people

        • DeniseVB says:

          Back in the late 60’s I interviewed with Delta for a flight attendant position, one of the questions they asked “Do you have a boyfriend?” I said yes. “Do you plan to marry him and have children?” I walked out of the interview. Thank goodness I did marry him and have children as a fallback career, eh?

    ABC uses Westboro Baptist protests to illustrate story about Brendan Eich

    A nice catch by Newsbusters. It’s bad enough that ABC would equate all opposition to gay marriage with the “GOD HATES FAGS” strain, but distinguishing the two is especially important in reporting on the Eich saga. The reason this is controversial is because, by all accounts, the guy wasn’t abusive towards gay employees. Mozilla’s chairwoman admits that he never behaved in a way that “was not in line with Mozilla’s values of inclusiveness.” The case against him remaining as CEO rests entirely on one political donation he made as a private citizen more than five years ago. If you’re illustrating that point with footage of angry Phelpsians screeching at a protest, you’re stacking the deck on viewer perceptions of Eich. ABC wouldn’t do that, would they?

    No blow too low.

    This is for helenk3. Google map “Tehachapi Loop” and check out that segment of track between Keene and Tehachapi. Busiest single track in the world. Forty freight trains per day. On the current pass GM caught at least three derailments being processed. Also could see residue from other olders. Read about it on wiki. Built it, including 14 tunnels, in less than three years in the late 1800s. Phenomenal.

    Spent the afternoon in a theater watching the Donald Rumsfeld documentary, “The Unknown Known”. I was in a small theater in Boston, and I think most of the other people there thought it was a hit piece, but I think he carried it off pretty well. My husband worked at G.D. Searle when Rumsfeld was the CEO, and neither one of us went in with a positive view of him, but we both had more respect, not less, coming out. I’m not sure what the film maker was trying to do.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Minds are like umbrellas, they only work when they open. I spent too many years grovelling about the Bush2 administration. I think history will treat them better than Obama’s.

    • 49erDweet says:

      He is an odd duck but extremely interesting. Always thought he was somewhat a victim of his own too-quick wit.

    • WMCB says:

      I have begun to think that many in the GWB admin were actually well-intended, and genuine patriots, but simply wrong. Wrong in their over-zealousness in fighting terrorism, and wrong in thnking that democracy can work in every culture. Full of nationalist hubris.

      But I can honestly say I have backed off of the “they were all evil” attitude. Some likely were, but I lean more toward “dangerously misguided” these days.

      • The Klown says:

        There were some on the right back then that were as scary as the left is now.

        • WMCB says:

          Yeah, that’s why I said some were likely evil. But I no longer think GWB was total evil. Just wrong.

            “Creedo, a mobile virtual network provided headquartered in San Francisco, is encouraging people to #standwithMozilla, fearing that Mozilla will be attacked by the right wing for Eich’s resignation. According to a statement released and distributed by CREEDO:
            It’s important to remember that Mozilla is not a company, it’s a movement supported by tens of thousands of volunteers around the world. Mozilla is a nonprofit organization fighting to keep the web open and free for all of us. They put people above profit, and fight for user choice and privacy. Their mission is vitally important to every grassroots movement, including the work that we do here at CREDO.”
            The part about privacy is especially illuminating since they have no problem violating it at will for their own benefit for politically correct causes that add to their coffers. Mozilla develops products that benefit them and they want a CEO that specializing in telecoms rather than internet products.

          • Lulu says:

            Crap. This nested in the wrong thread. Yikes.

    • 1539days says:

      You can get an idea of someone’s character by observing them in a crisis. Rumsfeld was at the Pentagon on 9/11. When he got out, he helped the people still inside to get out, too, rather than be whisked away to an undisclosed location.

    • Lulu says:

      We know now exactly why the “left” so desperately wants the names, addresses, blood types, and any other personal information that can be squeezed from “disclosure”, legal and otherwise, from donation and tax records. of any group that they deem a problem. The IRS in targeting Tea Party groups was after this same type of information and it is now obvious what they would do with it if unfettered. The WSJ digging out the petition of “”Credo Mobile, a wireless company that bills itself as progressive, gathered more than 50,000 signatures calling for [Eich] to resign.” coincides with other information that some of the management of Mozilla wanted someone who had a background in mobile telephone apps to lead the company rather than a foundational internet guy. The number of grousers working for Mozeilla taking to Twitter to oppose Eich was small but the board and co-founder what’s her name (with the really stupid excuses and inclusive bullshit) jumped on it to push him out.

      Personal privacy is out, especially advocacy and private morality. I don’t think they thought it would be this easy to push him out, and I don’t think they considered the criticism and disgust this would engender. The amount of coverage this disgusting episode and the degree of push-back has surprised them. Fascists used corporations to gain control similarly to Credo Mobile to gain control of institutions in 1920’s and 1930’s Germany. From wikipedia: “Working Assets was established in 1985 in San Francisco as a business that would use its revenues to fund progressive social change work. Working Assets was founded to give people an easy way to make a difference in the world just by doing things they do every day. Each time their members use one of its services—mobile, long distance or credit card—they automatically send a donation to progressive nonprofit groups. To date they’ve raised more than $76 million for groups like Planned Parenthood, Rainforest Action Network and Oxfam America.” Vile Progs and corporations, just like the original Fascists.

      • Lulu says:

        I left out the kicker: “CREDO Mobile (formerly Working Assets Wireless) is an American mobile virtual network operator headquartered in San Francisco, California. CREDO Mobile’s mobile network operator is Sprint Corporation. CREDO Mobile is a division of Working Assets

        • Lulu says:

          Founder of Working Assets and Credo Mobile is Laura Scher. She attended Harvard Business School and a Swiss Banking program. She also founded a credit card company under the auspices of Working Assets. She likes to gather the signatures of her customers to opposed federal judges, support NARAL, and pressure telecoms to provide texting services to causes she supports although the content was deemed “unsavory” by Verizon and ATT. She also presents petitions to Sen Feinstein from her customers. She has been an innovator in that part of her customers bill is tax deductible and she also runs the billing services of her company as a separate entity. Credo Mobile is located in San Francisco. She does very well for herself under the auspices of doing good for others.

    Weakly Standard:

    In late March, President Obama took a week-long trip through Europe which included a stop of less than 24 hours in Brussels, Belgium for meetings with the European Union and NATO. The president stayed at The Hotel, a twenty-seven story hotel in the center of the city. The estimated cost for the president’s stay, including about two weeks for an advance team, was $1,522,646.36.

  32. lyn says:

    Obama’s presence at those meetings was not worth that much. He should be forced to do the live video thing.
