Tuesday’s Open – Stop by and Chat a While Posted on June 26, 2012 by Cats r Flyfishn Thought I would get some conversations started with this… Feel free to speak your mind. Share this:FacebookPrintRedditTwitterEmailLike this:Like Loading... Related
Holding Democrat presidents tied to the stake siince 2009… BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!!
I would speak my mind, but I have to clean up all the coffee I sprayed on my keyboard…
I’d add a second line, something like:
Dumbing down America since our inception in the greasy neverworld of Ruprecht Mudrock.
Giving Republican Presidents a pass since inception….and ex candidates a job as an analyst always.
And hiring shills for former Republicon executives, with the intent of offering them a platform to contribute their personal lies to the propaganda mainstream.
This makes me sad. I always loved the rotary engine. Got to drive an 80’s RX-7 and absolutely fell in love with it. The power was amazing, but the smoothness of the power is what really memorable. I suppose direct-electric drive, with their smoothness and high-torque will be quite the the thrill too.

When we were kids we used to have belching contests.
Anyone that could belch “Wankel Rotary Engine” was generally the winner.
I also have an old see through model of the Wankel.
Wankels make great power until the seals blow and then it burns more oil than gas.
Doctor has medical license revoked for refusing to force a 10-year-old girl to give birth. This happened in A.) Saudi Arabia B.) Sudan C.) Kansas
D) All of the above.
Something is definitely wrong in Kansas… no wonder Dorothy wanted to run away with Toto.
Ten years old? What kind of idiot can’t see the mental and physical damage a ten year old child would suffer if forced to give birth? I’m sorry, but I really do hate these people. The hateful right likes to accuse liberals of being full of hate. In this case they’re correct, about me at least. Did I mention that I really f’ing hate these people?
Who will raise the baby? Who will financially support the baby? This child isn’t even old enough to get a job. Yes, I hate these people, too. They are mean and ugly.
I agree with the hate of these sick fuck ignoramuses.
One day they’re all worked up about “life” and forcing a 10 year old to give birth, no matter what the consequences to her body and mind, and the next day, when they see her pushing a stroller down the street, they’ll condemn her as a whore and throw her to the wolves.
Not to mention just what kind of sick bastard impregnated the child.
This will be coming up soon.

It’ll be exciting and a bit nerve wracking for the scientists until it alights, safely!
Nooooooooooooooooooo! Not two of them.
Fox “News” is in the entertainment division.
News Corp Spinoff: Media Giant Considers Splitting Into 2 Companies
Why shouldn’t they be required to re-brand as Fox News Entertainment? Kinda like WWE…
Methinks it’s an effort to insulate the TV division from the legal ramifications of the print division’s hacking scandal.
I think you’re on to something there.
It’s what they call a lateral move:
Fox News’ Rome correspondent, a numerary of Opus Dei, becomes the director of the Vatican’s media operation.
Giving a new meaning to the concept of ‘Papal Bull”…
RUC nicely done!
Damn, I’m going to have to wait ’til I get home to discover what you’re all talking about–for some reason the photo/whatever is not showing here at work. 😦
Check out the Cantor thread at TP. They show polling that gives a chance he could get defeated in 2012!
Aarpn Sorkin’s The Newsroom is getting very mixed reviews but I love Sorkin’s snappy banter. Here’s Sorkin stealing from himself. A supercut:
I like Sorkin. And I liked The Newsroom. Incredibly more watchable than “Life’s a Tripp.” With messages that need to be said. The critics? Either jealous or the subject matter is cutting too close to home.
“Either jealous or the subject matter is cutting too close to home.”
I don’t particularly like the casting, but let’s see where it goes. I agree with some of the critiques; the characters are preachy and this is probably not an accurate portrayal of cable news journalism. Duh.
But the characters in The West Wing were pretty preachy and the media tended to let that slide.I think the negative reaction stems from the fact that the press knows that it isn’t doing a very good job.
Most of the negative reviews I’ve read are about episodes after the first two. I liked the pilot episode a great deal, actually, and I loved the opening scene with the rebuttal to American Exceptionalism. I can imagine the RWNJs are shitting themselves. I’m going to stick with it to see if the writers level out or the whole thing is a bust.
Incidentally, if you have not watched The Hour (all of you!) you must do so. Them Brits know how to make teevee.
Is that on BBC network?
Able to stretch and twist his record to fit any need, he’s the…
When you have the time – peruse .
Here’s just a very small sampling of the idiocy:
“Protection from Extreme Environmentalists – We strongly oppose all efforts of the extreme environmental groups that stymie legitimate business interests. We strongly oppose those efforts that attempt to use the environmental causes to purposefully disrupt and stop those interests within the oil and gas industry. We strongly support the immediate repeal of the Endangered Species Act. We strongly oppose the listing of the dune sage brush lizard either as a threatened or an endangered species. We believe the Environmental Protection Agency should be abolished.”
“Free Speech for the Clergy – We urge amendment of the Internal Revenue Code to allow a religious organization to address issues without fear of losing its tax-exempt status. We call for repeal of requirements that religious organizations send the government any personal information about their contributors.”
Guns, god, greed, gays *and* … the dune sage brush lizard.
In my early 20s my friends and I were in a softball league and had really nifty jerseys displaying our team name:
You can figure out the cheer our fans yelled.
My husband was on a similar team… I wonder… did you grow up in California?
North suburb of Chicago.
As small town in Alberta has a team name of Raiders. The catch is the town’s name is Castor!!!
Heh… Clever…. I like the clever.
the local oil companies chartered buses to transport employees are their spouses to the town hall meetings in southeast New Mexico while this was being debated. i know they spent hundreds of thousand dollars to campaign against the status of the lizard. Steve Pierce (R) New Mexico is one of the biggest bastards in bed with big oil in this part of the world, he was saying the creature’s protection from extinction would cost thousands of jobs…..which is total bullshit.
I guess I’m not a candidate to become a Texas (or any other, for that matter) wingnut, given that my position on those issues is exactly the opposite, 180 degrees, from theirs. Strengthen and increase EPA authority, ESP ANY and ALL ENDANGERED SPECIES PROVISIONS!, also tax any church that opens its political yapper on any issue, period. I’m also leaning toward recommending lifetime incarceration for any wingnut anywhere, but haven’t worked out the precise wording yet.
Just when you start to think that they have bottomed out and can’t get any crazier? They double down again.
Dark Ages much…?
The only extremists in the room are the Republicans. Yeah, I bet they want to abolish the EPA, because the EPA has been an incredibly effective tool to keep industrialists from polluting air, water and ground for decades. They do not fucking care if the air is foul and the rivers burn just as long as they get their dividends, and the morons who support this Party and will never see a dime of the profits are just, well, they’re fucking morons.
Protection from Extreme Environmentalists
Guess it’s a bad time to bring this up…
Greens, Automakers Hail Greenhouse Gas Ruling
This doesn’t read well for the species:
Mumbo-jumbo for let the oil and gas industry continue to call the shots.
But here’s the thing: if the lizard is extincted by man and God wants it around, He’ll simply recreate it. No worries. 🙄
Well, there you go. And if God lets them go extinct it proves they were from the Debbil. God gave “us” (aka white males of property) the whole universe to dominate and to with as we will. In other words, God apparently doesn’t give a shit about his Creation, only about “us” (aka white males of a Protestant disposition).
Haven’t you white males of a Protestant disposition done enough? Now you’re dragging the Catholics like Paul Ryan and Justices Roberts, Alito, and Scalia into your abyss?
Therein lies the problem on the Supreme Court, too many Catholics.
Too bad we don’t have a Like button for comments.
Christianist Alert. A doozy from Jindal:
The poor kids don’t stand a chance. Here’s another story on the same subject from last week.
Thom Hartmann also noted that a Muslim school qualified for the public funds and the Christian Reichwhiners went nuts. So? there might be a chance that it will be overturned.
Oooh, the formatting fairy has paid us a visit!
“If Obamacare is not deemed constitutional, then the first three-and-a-half years of this president’s term will have been wasted on something that has not helped the American people,” Romney told more than 1,000 supporters gathered outside Carter Machinery in southwest Virginia. ”
Wasted? Like Mittens term as governor?
Carter Machinery also received stimulus funds.
Interesting logic. He admitted that Obamacare would benefit people.
Teresa Sullivan reinstated at the University of Virginia…Thomas Jefferson quit spinning in his grave today.
Looks like some shit’s going down in Gaza tonight.
OMG, not again…still.
Ten minutes later, he tweeted this
I still hope, in vain, that someone will summon up the guts to accurately describe Gaza as a concentration camp administered by the heirs of the Holocaust. Who knew that the rallying cry that drove the birth of Israel, “Never Again”, contained the subtext of “unless we’re the perpetrators”?
Only there ain’t no snow in Gaza
Getting ready to leave my dad’s house, since the happy couple are soon to arrive. I’ll check in later if I can get the motel wireless to work.
Some fun facts about my Tweep, Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa)
Your Supreme Court:
I like this one…
Nora Ephron may have finally died. If she hasn’t yet, she’s expected to soon. Been getting conflicting reports all day that started with Liz Smith’s column to Nora that almost sounded like a eulogy.
Has she been ill?
According to the search page, this is from 5 minutes ago.
This Abrahamic god is interesting. The first group spent the past 1,900 years as the masters of the low profile. The second group managed to invade and destroy almost every civilization in the New World after they had declared war on the third group which they pretty much lost. All three tend to be pacifistic at heart in their teachings yet in the past 100 years or so the radical wings have managed to ignite a three way war zone. With the Zionists, the Fundamentalists and the Jihadists they have managed to turn basically peaceful religions into the fire of war.
And all of them claim that the exact same god is on all their sides. If this isn’t solid proof that the Abrahamic God has never existed, I can’t imagine what could be.
Or He exists and is a bit of a c***……
All three have always claimed to be peaceful but the founding books of all three contain little but imprecations to slaughter all who stand in the way of “their god’s” wishes. So, of course, all three have always obeyed their god and slaughtered anyone they feel should be slaughtered. The best proof that there is no God, IMO, is that all sides have won victories and suffered defeats. Logically, only one side should have won every conflict. Of course, Faith, even the benevolent faith of kind people, defies all logic.
He still could be a …. you know … that works too.
Crappy teevee channels here. No MSNBC.
This is MSNBC and is working for me.
Awesome! It’s working for me! That’s a first. 🙂
Hurray for wi-fi!
Srsly! The wifi box thing is right outside my door, so it’s a great signal.
The BBC One link worked for me Sunday morning so I got to watch the Formula One race live instead of tape-delayed, by Fox, and it was commercial free, which is even better than Speed Channel!
Thanks for the link. It’s working for me, too.
TPM Regular Thinks Scalia Angry About ACA Decision
Works for me.
SCOTUS will reveal their decision on the ACA on Thursday. What do you think the over-under wager is on when Romney will have a comment on the decision?
By Friday night?
Oh yeah, a clear as mud non-statement by Saturday afternoon at the latest. *snort*
That wager operates on a sliding scale, proportionate to the favorability of the decision to Obama’s re-election. The more favorable, the longer the wait.
Great opportunity for a Romney Bingo Game….. IMHO
PETE, LOOK!! What is this fish? The caption says it was taken in Turkey.
im not eating that sh*t man…. bet it was one of those did for Lonesome George
I think it’s a Bullhead Assad.
No, that’s Egypt’s tyrant.
It’s not a fish. It’s a nudibranch but I don’t know the species.
Can’t the nudibranch take either the male or female role in reproduction as necessary?
He’s missing a shell…
Henri’s Ennui Pt 3
Heh! It’s kinda like this one.
Underemployed son went to renew his food stamp eligibility today and asked about Medicaid, as his ex seems to think everyone poor qualifies. Virginia only covers children, pregnant women, and the disabled. His caseworker told him he was not eligible for Medicaid because of Obama. The ignorance is stunning.
Badmoonman: Fox News’ Rome correspondent, a numerary of Opus Dei, becomes the director of the Vatican’s media operation.
So we can expect these types of stories from the Vatican in the future:
Breaking news from FOXVAT@9: An anonymous Vatican spokesperson stated that US President Barack Hussein Osama has been behind the massive coverup of all the sexual molestation and pedophilia cases against children which has been blamed on the Catholic Church by the evil liberal media in America. More on this breaking story at 10.
Coming up at FoxVAT@9: John Paul the Second – is BHO correct that it happened on George Bush’s watch? When is it right for BHO to be held accountable?
I’ve got one of the Twilight movies on the teevee machine, and even on mute it’s mind-numbingly boring. I should have started counting how many times this one guy flips his hair. 🙄
I don’t do vampire movies. The closest I ever got was watching the Canadian tv series Forever Knight.
I don’t either, unless it’s Dark Shadows — the original series, not the movie. 🙂
The flippy hair dude is a werewolf, it seems. And he takes off his shirt A LOT.
As best I can tell, and my DIL is obsessed with these movies, werewolf dude taking off his shirt is pretty much the highlight of these things.
Somehow, the werewolf dude’s hair got short. Must have been to the groomer.
And now the moody chick has jumped off a cliff. Jeebus, I’m glad I’m not hearing the dialogue. 😀
I don’t get the attraction — especially among grown women.
Vampire slow-mo fighting. Oh lordy…I hope it’s over soon.
Okay, so we’ve set up a love triangle for the next movie. I’ll be giving that one a miss. 😀
I’ve heard that playing Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ syncronised with Wizard of Oz plays out really well – especially with a few mind-altering chemicals to help out.
Maybe you could try it with Twilight? Or maybe Abba’s Greatest Hits?
That would totally ruin ABBA for me. 😉
Ok then Morrisey’s Greatest Hits …
“I left my heart……”
Don’t know watcha you’re taking about, so here…
Open thread for today is up. Sorry it’s late, BnF had asked for someone to do the open thread for him today, but I didn’t see it until this morning.
