Just Another Caturday Open Thread


Apparently there is some kind of sporting event taking place in Brazil. I won’t be watching it but thanks to Twitter I will get to follow every unexciting moment as people I follow post tweet after tweet that only make sense to someone who is a) a fan b) watching the games. I get the same joyful experience during the endless hockey and basketball playoffs, NCAA football bowl games, and UFC bouts.

That reminds me – Sergio Romo blew a 2 run lead in the 9th last night, and the SF Giants lost by a score of 7-4 to the Rockies. That is the Giants fourth loss in five games, but they still hold the best record in the major leagues.

Obama is in Palm Springs today, although he’s supposed to pop over to Irvine to deliver a commencement speech in between a game of golf and a fundraiser. But don’t worry, he left Joe Biden in charge.

    I honestly don’t know what is worse, when Obama is working or when he is goofing off. But even though I have no faith in him to do a competent job when he does show up it still irks me that he plays hooky so much.

      It is an almost certainty that anyone trying to delete work emails has done something major wrong. It is one of the biggest flags for employee fraud. When it happens giant flashing lights and alarms go off in IT. Only in the federal government would this not happen. BUT it actually does so that is why I know they are lying. It usually triggers an audit. Archived data is never deleted. Never.

      • 1539days says:

        You can get in major trouble if your business does not archive e-mails. I think the entire IT staff of the IRS should be fired for non-compliance. Let’s see what that shakes loose.

      • 49erDweet says:

        Unless major damage is mysteriously cast on tons and tons of other data, too.

    I am finally escaping the middle of BFN and moving back to a city TOMORROW. PTL. The first thing I am going to do is order a damn pizza, because it has been 3 years since I’ve been able to do that. Living large!

    From the comments at Hot Air:

    One of the more common refrains coming from the hard core, Hillary loving left . . .

    The hard core left despises both Clintons. That is why Obama ended up with the nomination in 2008.

      This is one of the most shocking things I learned in 2008. I’d known since 1992 that the GOP and the media hated them, but I never realized the depth of CDS in the Democratic party. It also includes a big part of the Dem establishment.

      • The Klown says:

        I still don’t understand why Democrats would hate Bill and Hillary.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Too moderate for the vile proggy left ? Afterall, they left our country in better shape than what Obama’s doing to her.

          • Lulu says:

            Bill was considered white trash from Arkansas who didn’t know his place. His IQ threatened them and it made it even worse that he was a Rhodes scholar. They hated LBJ for similar reasons. And of course Sarah Palin ran into the same class bigotry. The credo of the Vile Progs is know your place.

          • Lulu says:

            The Progs hate anyone who might compete with them thus their championing any group which they consider so far beneath them that they will never challenge them. It is all about elites and keeping everyone else out. They cultivate lackeys to do their dirty work and make them think they are elite also but they are not and very disposable such as gullible voters.

          • Somebody says:

            Lulu is 100% correct I know two NE, Harvard grad libs and both of them feel exactly about the Clintons as Lulu described. Same for LBJ, Palin and many other pols.

        • 49erDweet says:

          I always thought it was because “Arkansas?” “Are you out of your mind?” “Arkansas?” I look for the simplest solution, but have been wrong before.

          • mothy67 says:

            I loved the laugh. Progs have little sense of humor

          • 49erDweet says:

            Mothy, you may have nailed it. Progs don’t trust someone who laughs at things THEY don’t find numerous. My poor sweetie used to squirm in her seat at matinees while I – who could see the plot line developing eight scenes ahead – chuckled louder and louder at nothing but anticipation at the super boffo coming up. She had to marry me just to convince her friends she wasn’t wasting her time.
            I suspect Billy boy had a similar gift.

    BTW – You know your cat is feeling very safe and secure when she starts sleeping on her back.

    • elliesmom says:

      Mine dragged a towel into the bath tub and is taking a nap.

      • The Klown says:

        Don’t turn on the water.

        • Jadzia says:

          My sweet may-he-rest-in-peace cat once slipped on the side of the tub while I was taking a bath, and he fell right in. I had to peel him off of the ceiling.

          • Somebody says:

            At least he didn’t use you to climb out as mine once did when he fell in my garden tub.

            The worse thing that ever happened to one of my cats though was when he fell in the toilet, that I then used. I was unaware he’d fallen in, until I felt something between my legs. OMG that cat came up out of that toilet between my legs and jumped so far he hit the wall across from the toilet and literally walked along the wall sideways a few feet.He hid under the bed for about 12 hours refusing to come out, LOL!

          • 49erDweet says:

            I started laughing at “between your legs” and couldn’t come back and finish reading for hours. ROFL. (No offense intended, just too funny)

          • leslie says:

            ROFLMAO! 😀

          • The Klown says:

            Cats can be hilarious but they have no sense of humor and they hate to be laughed at.

          • The Klown says:
          • Jadzia says:

            OMG. I can’t picture my sweet kitty doing THAT! He had more of a doggy kind of personality.

          • mothy67 says:

            Never understood why people loved cats. Dogg person. Last summer I found two itty bitty kittens left in the park to die. Sweetest things. They would crawl all over me sit on my shoulders when I was at computer. I would have kept them but I am allergic. Used a no kill shelter. They were over run so asked me to keep until they could place. Maybe a month. Place was hardcore. They do background checks and get references. Never I was told put them on craigslist as people scour sites and feed them to snakes. When they got a home(together) I couldn’t even watch them leave. I was a puddle
            Conversely my belt way prog friends got a puuppy for their spoiled brat of a son who is seven and loaded up on ADHD meds. Puppy was too much and I guess they could not medicate it into submission so they just got rid of it. Great lesson for a kid. I keep telling Bella(do not let the name fool you she is bad) she is going back to the pound. Never gonna happen. Big fucking deal she ate a very exprnsive coffee table I or rather my brat chose her. You do not just walk away when things get tough. The first obedience school she got thrown out of they wanted me to hit her. Psycho mutt loses her mind chasing a leaf falling from a tree. Even if I could would not want to take that from her.

    • mothy67 says:

      Do not have my readers on I can never find them sometimes they are on top of my head but I read Happy F ag Day and thought my that is rude.

      Missed my calling. I think I was meant to be the worst surgical nurse ever in history. Scapel– me fumbling around cursing saying I know I put it somewhere then I would have to sit down fire up a cigarette and talk calmly to talk to myself okay what was I wearing last time I had it. Oh yeah scrubs.

    If you’d like to take the tour of the home the Obama’s are staying (local rumor, may be buying?) in Palm Springs……

    • The Klown says:

      Barry would love living in Palm Springs. Nothing but three of his four favorite things – the filthy rich, celebrities and golf courses.

      He’ll have to go elsewhere to get his all-time favorite thing – adoring crowds.

      • leslie says:

        OMG if only he would move there. We could get him the heck out of Chicago. Life would be better. The natives would finally learn what he is about —– himself and only himself.

    • The Klown says:

      After he leaves office Obama will have to make a lot of six and seven figure speaking fees in order to maintain the lifestyle he and Michelle have grown accustomed to.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I just don’t feel they’ll get the post-Presidency “love” the Clintons received. And neither Obama is as smart or works as hard as a Clinton.

    • Somebody says:

      A 3 bedroom house? Michelle will NOT be happy with that, it’s too small. Michelle needs something a little more grand.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think with all the guest house, pool house, club house outbuildings, not to mention the 8 car garage! , it could be MO-worthy. Afterall, this is her WH decorator’s vacay home, it can be made AWESOMESAUCE for her.

        I’d rather have Hillary’s DC or Chappaqua home, I’m an East Coastie 🙂

    TCH Open Thread Entertainment Division Breaking News ! Kelly Clarkson welcomes a baby girl River Rose ! I rolled my eyes on the name til I remembered one of my grandgirlies is named after a character in the book Clan of Cave Bear, or the actress who portrayed that character in the movie, or why am I overthinking this……


    • mothy67 says:

      Sorry I like the tried and true. Call your kid whatever you want
      Think they call it a nickname but let the kid freaking develop without a name making them be a freak before they can excercize themself. My older bro is Jim I am Tim. Everyday in Catholic grade school over really bad intercom system we heard im Cain please report to the principal’s office. If it was good ot was for Jim bad me. Nuns thought it was clever he became Abel and me Cain. Ten years old being labeled as first sociopath murderer. Like it now beats Tim.

      We gave Iraq enough time to reboot it’s culture if the PTB had WANTED to reboot. They didn’t, and once again peons pay with their lives. I’m not happy about it, but the bigger tragedy to me is the waste of American warriors during the “giving time” process. Sorry, that’s just the way I see it. If Bush had had an in and out plan, that’s one thing. But this open ended piece of dung was majorly stupid. And the First Hacker had clue zero on what to do with it, though I must say he played that card brilliantly ……… seeing he secretly wanted the others to win.

      • The Klown says:

        As with the Russian annexation I am frustrated by our lack of viable options in Iraq. Any assessment of the current situation in Iraq has to apportion some of the blame to one or more previous administrations. Obviously we would not be in this mess if we hadn’t invaded Iraq in the first place. But that doesn’t let Obama-Clinton/Kerry completely off the hook. They had five years to come up with some better options.

        When you’re the head cheese the buck stops at your desk.

      • 1539days says:

        There is no out plan unless everyone is dead. We still have military in Japan and Germany.

        • 49erDweet says:

          I could be wrong on this, but don’t we mostly just have rapid response teams in both those places? Good for about 30 minutes of full bore assault and then dig in and hold? To me its not the same thing as Iraq and Afghanistan, where there are a lot more regular troops and not as much firepower per soldier,

          • The Klown says:

            If it was up to me we would have kept semi-isolated air bases in both countries with enough tanks, trucks, ammo and equipment stored for an armored division and support infantry. Then leave enough troops to guard the bases until reinforcements arrive.

          • 49erDweet says:

            You make too much sense, thus you have no future in politics.

          • 49erDweet says:

            The other part of it is out air power could have stopped and beat back ISIS in one afternoon if Teh Hacker had wanted to. He doesn’t. They’re his BBF’s.

    I think I may have out done myself online for saying dumb shit. Local library has an aggressive reading program. You go with your kid you select a few books. Well I was like how do I top Hermione Granger(most stuff for seven year olds is vapid or for boys) . Decided on Jane Eyre. I love the book and as it is a take on Cinderella I figured perfect. Then I went home and starting thinking about the professor who gifted me that novel. Googled her and sent a corny thank you replete with To Sir With Love in the subject line. Best teacher I have ever had and instead of a simple thank you I query how you turn crayons into perfume. Pathetic. Would love to desolve into self loathing but she also beat into my head the sonnet when in disgrace of fortune blah blah blah. All I needed to say was thank you. Idiot am I.

    The idiot at the reconcilliation center where my baby girl’s dad has to go for 12 weeks before he can do unsupervised visits told me I should make play dough with thr monster. As if I plop her down in front ..f s tv and walk away. FUck off you stupid little troll. I have some of the worst paper mache ever made and decoupage from hell.We have a lab in the basement. Thank god for wifi and kindle as I need to look everyyhing up. Troll thinks making play dough is advice. Sorry gnome we did that when she was two. Got me thinking though and why not learn to make dresses. She loves to wear thrm and I am often impressed by the clothes on Pretty Little Liars so why not create that
    I took her everyday whaen she was a baby and bought a balloon. Red I would say. Her tiny arms clasped around my neck saying red back. You cannot buy that kind of warmth. To have Miss Frodo Baggins tell me i nerd to make dough.
