The Watering Hole, Monday, September 7th, 2015: Buzzwords

I ran across the following comment by “Lando Thig” on a recent ThinkProgress thread about Donald Trump. I thought it was a wonderful snarky compilation of Republican/conservative/TeaParty/racist talking points, lies, and general idiocy.

Lando Thig

  1. I think you hit all the bases.
    What’s left to cover?
    I would say: “Mission Accomplished”

    • I liked the cigarette warning labels when I was in Germany at the duty free store.
      “Smoking clogs the arteries, causes heart attacks and strokes”
      “Smoking kills”

      • When I was stationed at Ramstein AB in West Germany (pre-unification), a carton of cigarettes at the base exchange cost $4.50. That’s a carton, ten packs, not one pack. It made quitting harder because they were so cheap.

        • When I was in college, a carton was two bucks. Big savings, given a pack was a quarter (same price as a pound of chicken or a pound of ground beef). Times have changed.

          • I recall buying cigarettes from a machine for a quarter with 2 pennies inside each pack. Of course I remember buying penny candy that did only cost 1 cent too!

            • And bubble gum! And five sticks of chewing gum for a nickle. A dime for a comic book. Popsicle for a nickle. Ice cream cone (1 scoop) for a nickle. And in my dad’s bakery, a dozen choc. chip cookies for 20 cents, a dozen sweet rolls for 45 cents, 1.5 lb bread for 20 cents.

              Good ol’ days, gone. 😥

        • When I was in the Navy (62-65), when we left port, the storekeeper sold cigarettes for $1.00 a carton. In one port in Italy, a shipmate spent a night in a hotel with meals, drinks and a woman for 2 cartons!

  2. Palin told CNN’s Jake Tapper Sunday that she had one niece named “Denali” and another niece named “McKinley,” which is indicative of how there is a “bit of a split” on how Alaskans feel on the topic. I’d like to source that info.

    So it isn’t just her immediate family that give their kids stupid names. I’ll bet someone in her extended family is named Inuit and Iditarod.

  3. R.I.P., Martin Miler and Judy Carne.

    As we get farther and farther away from our youth….

  4. Virginia Tech’s helmets are stunning! Looks almost like a candy apple red metallic, with the VT on the side a white outline with the base color inside the letters.

    • Urban Meyer went with last year’s hero Cardale Jones at QB. I understand both Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett were ready to play.

    • The headline mentioned the boy and his dog were rescued.
      No where in the article was the dog mentioned. (do you suppose it was Lassie)

      • That was an updated headline.

        I have to wonder how anyone knew the boy was in the well, if it wasn’t Lassie…

  5. Here is a link to the Twitter feed of a comedian raising money for Planned Parenthood “in the name of Ted Cruz.” It appears PP will send you a computer-generated Thank You repeating the reason for your donation, such as “in honor of the really messy wet dream Ted Cruz had about Justin Bieber last night.”

    It is hilarious.

    • Thanks for that link!

      “planned parenthood literally puts babies on a tiny cross made of gay marriage certificates and rips off their arms”
