Greetings! I hope everyone is doing well. I have a few things to vent.
1) Ted Cruz is a Frakking idiot, seriously. There is no room in American politics for a Frakking idiot that makes comparisons about legislation passed in Congress being tantamount to appeasement to Nazi’s. That utterance confirms that he is a complete waste of time that only wants the media attention that his bloviating gained. I’ve seen a lot of stupid politicians in my life, but he takes the cake right now, but this is not surprising considering those that support his little tirade are even more stupid than he is. He said nothing of substance in his little ruse to act as if he were filibustering, when in fact it was simply a speech. He said nothing at all of merit. He could have used that opportunity to ask cogent questions, but then again the man has no thought process, he is just a Frakking idiot that is only encouraged by the idiots that cheer his stupidity. I would like to have a time machine send his dumb as back to Nazi Germany and then hear him attempt to say the stupid gunk he now thinks. That he mentioned Neville Chamberlain indicates how short of an intellect he has. Chamberlain did everything in his power to make an attempt to prevent war with Germany, yes he failed, but in 20/20 hindsight it is clear that nothing that was done would have stopped Hitler’s march, but it was far better to make an attempt than to do nothing at all. One of Chamberlains biggest critics was Winston Churchill who felt that Chamberlain was blind to the threat of Hitler and that a coalition of European countries could have prevented Hitler’s land grab, but as indicated by the unwillingness of the European countries to confront Hitler’s breach of the Versailles Treaty, nothing would have stopped Hitler short of a full out war, which incidentally was the only thing that stopped him. Yes, Chamberlain will forever go down in history as an appeaser, but even Chamberlain knew how vicious Hitler was, it is not as simple as saying that Chamberlain wasn’t aware of the consequences, he tried to stave them off but failed, but it was better that he made the attempt because it showed how evil Hitler was before the world.
2) Newt Gingrich is a snake oil salesman that has no ethics. Every step of his way he has behaved as if his debating skills will shield him from the reality that he is nothing more than a bottom dealing knave. http://www.vanityfair.com/online/daily/2013/09/newt-gingrich-s-crossfire-might-have-bigger-problems-than-the-fact-it-is-hosted-by-newt-gingrich
Get hip, CNN. He just played you, yet because they want ratings they will overlook his ethical transgressions.
3) The cable news media can take a hike. It offers nothing to the U.S. Citizen anymore.
4) This guy is a Frakking loser: http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/19/us/wisconsin-mceverything-sandwich/ An attention seeking whore and nothing more. This is a symptom of a larger problem. The problem being that if ever there were to be a movement to make this country a better place, those working to that end will suffer because we have so many Frakking idiots in our society that will sell out for a little attention. It is the “All about me Generation,” that we need to teach the most.
5) Reality TV has so rotted the mind of the American that it is now venturing forth to ruin the book industry. It should be clear now that the powers that be are working more to stunt creative growth than to encourage it. With all of the books released about the various reality TV shows, those books are getting top billing and they are distancing the creative aspect of literature and conflating it with marketing strategies, Duck Dynasty in particular.
6) The gun control issue is a non-starter. It is becoming to the Left what Abortion is to the Right: a wedge issue.
7) President Obama should distance himself from Bill Clinton. More and more it looks like the Clintons are calling the plays and Obama is just carrying the football for them. In time this will be written about in biographies. The President doesn’t need another salesman, he ought to be comfortable selling his health care plan himself. The Clintons are a liability to him, in the short-term they are helping him, but only at the expense of their own agenda.
Neb you are a live. I thought you joined the Romulans.
Hi, Coppernicus! I would never join those treacherous, deceitful petaQ’s! I just need some time away from the computer. I hope all is well for you?
It is going pretty good. Understandable we all need a break now and again. Did yo do some reading?
Yes, I’ve been reading a lot about world history Post WWI to WWII, and practicing Latin. Mostly nonfiction books, two about Germany prior to Hitler, one about the Russian Revolution / Bolshevist revolution, One about Winston Churchill, a few about U.S. Foreign Policy pre-WWII, Also, Thucydides “The Peloponnesian War.”
I also finished watching the X-Files! I saw World War Z a few nights ago, I was surprised that I liked it, I thought it had a good pacing throughout the movie, it does slow down near the end, but I liked it more than I thought I would.
Me too, looks like they left to be ongoing or a trilogy…something like that anyway.
I had read before the movie that it was set to be a trilogy, I think they should do it, it would be neat to see the story progress where it left off. Pitt did a good job of bringing a form of stature to the genre. The special effects looked a lot better when watching it than in the movie trailers.
I watched it a couple of nights ago, too. It was pretty good overall – the Wall in Israel was pretty cool.
That part was neat. I felt so bad for that Israeli soldier after she got bit, but she is a tough cookie!
I kept thinking that we’re living around zombies, too – under the guise of the Tea Party!
Not to leave out those idiots trying to create a Nazi State in North Dakota, what a bunch of losers.
Not only was his Godwin’s law B.S., but his history was bolloxed, too. He said appeasement to the Nazis in the 1940s. There was no appeasement to the Nazis in the 1940. World War II started in 1939.
Good catch! If Stupidity had a badge of Honor- he would wear it with pride next to his clusters of Dumbfuck!
The other thing people forget when they harsh on Chamberlain is that the U.K. was literally gutted by WW I. The majority of an entire generation of men were wiped out by that war. Britain simply could not take another war. They didn’t have enough young men after WW I.
I agree, it isn’t as simple as what the detractors say, there was a large world-wide movement for disarmament, and as you mention the toll inflicted from the previous war. While in hindsight it is clear what should have been done, the fact is that they were living the history, and they made attempts to bring the concerns about the aggressiveness of Germany under Hitler to the fore-front, but they weren’t ready to respond, the Great Depression had a huge impact on the countries in Europe.
Hey there, Neb!! Great to see you! 🙂
Greetings!! I hope you are doing well. How have you been?
Good – just working my arse off – been pulling some overnighters – uggghhhhh!
Exactly – it was totally devastating.
Hi, Haruko. ( Hope you were kidding about deportation?)
The 49ers better win!! 😦
I’ll root for them then! No point in rooting for the Jags – they’re a lost cause!
Good evening, All!
Hey, Gorgeous!! 😉
Hey, Beautiful! 🙂

Great series idea, Jack! It is perfect!
Awesome rant, Neb. Well worth the wait.
Thanks! I could go on, but I don’ want to burst a blood vessel!
Oh no, we can’t have that. Have a lie down. Shall I get you another pillow?
Please! And a drink, I promise not to throw it in your face 😉
What we have now in the US is
Rule by Extortion.
A group of fanatics are willing to risk the full faith and credit of the United States to satisfy their overlords.
This isn’t going to stop… they will pull these shenanigans all the way up to the mid-terms.
Hi, Girlie! You are so right. What a bunch of lazy louts, funding our global empire (while ignoring our citizens) six weeks at a time.
Good to see you, Fluffy.
Greetings, Termgirl! Great points!
Long time, no see.
Hey! How is your FF team doing? I hope you are winning?!
Thanks, neb. Well, I’m still in first place but I have a rough week coming up… lots of tough match-ups. How is your team doing.
I’m still undefeated, ranked 3rd, but actually 2nd, but we have two divisions. I’m going to have a tough match up this week. The guy I’m playing against is doing good tonight with Boldin, but I think I have enough overall to beat him by a few points on Sunday when the majority of the games are played.
Well, good luck, my friend.
Good luck to you as well, Champ! Interesting things going on in the league, it will be interesting to see if the Dolphins and the Chiefs can play this well up to the half mark of the season. Chicago and Dallas can really put a clamp on their divisions if they keep winning.
The Dolphins play New Orleans this week, and their defense (NO) looks really good. That should be an interesting game.
I saw a statistic that after week 3, the NFC playoff teams from last year were 3 – 15. It’s been really surprising, so far.
It is so neat though how things start off so strange and then by week 8 the picture sort of clears itself out. The Giants are going nowhere, Green Bay will be around at the end. It will be interesting to see how long Seattle can go before they get beat, San Francisco needs to win tonight or things will get nasty. I look forward to seeing the Dolphins beat New England int he coming weeks, they always play them well and it is about time that the other teams in that division put up a fight instead of letting the Patriots run all over them. I like both E.J. Manual and Geno Smith, they could be game changers if they can stay healthy and grow into their positions.
If they persist in droning on – I say drone ’em back – put us out of their misery!
Hi, tg! Glad to see you!
Honestly, at this point, I’m not sure how they should be dealt with.
I do think Harry Reid was wise to let Cruz drone on and on….
kind of like Captain Queeg in “The Caine Mutiny.”
Ha! We’ve all been thinking it…and you said it! 😆
Hah, ha, we have a friend who just traded Frank Gore from her fantasy team. Frank Gore has 107 yards rushing … at the half. 😆
I’d like to trade the whole Vikings team.
I feel kind of bad for Peterson.
They wanna blame Ponder but it’s the defense that keeps losing the games in the last 2 minutes. Ponder has issues but the whole team is coming up short. Even Peterson seems to be back to his fumbling ways.
It’s always easy to blame the qb.
My son plays fantasy BPL soccer. He lost five points when his favorite player Kevin Rooney kicked a free kick goal against Man. City. He lost a number of clean sheet bonus points.
Did you see about the bridge up in GB?
Really odd. I have a friend who is a civil engineer. It’s something that hasn’t happened before.
Bill Cosby: “Pow! You have just hit a dip!”
Your friend should have looked at what Demarco Murray did to the Rams last week.
It’s a great match-up for Gore.
They need to keep pounding the football right now and get him up to 150 yards. As long as they don’t turnover the ball they should coat tonight.
Now we both are jinxing things. LOL.
You think committees would take in to account working conditions when they award events,
They were warned!
This is pretty good. Hope it leads to some place good for both countries.
Hello, The Realm!
Greetings, CG! It is great to see you, Thanks for the link you posted to me several pages back. I hope all is going well for you?!
Great to see you, too, neb! You’re welcome, it’s a good one, no?
Everything is just great, thanks, I hope it’s as good in your world.
It is a great link! I really liked it! It is good to hear things are good on your side! It is great in my little world, just re-centering myself reading more and trying to stay away fro the news, HP is dead to me, I barely even look at it now.
Hiya, Sis! Enjoying Breaking Bad?!
Hi, guys! Neb- per your comment upthread, did you see this? http://25.media.tumblr.com/21b3bdc88c65ee3f72204d25885f83e0/tumblr_mtn1x1e3Am1rotfmvo1_1280.jpg
I LOVE it! Good to see you, and again, hi, everybody!
HIya, Sis! What is this?
Forgot the link, it’s just below. Hi, Sis!
Ms Badger! It is so good to see you! Is that picture taken from up there?
Yes. Here’s the article link. Go Grandmothers! 😀 http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/
Fuck. THAT’S not it, either…. BRB…..
It’s on the very bottom of the page, found it.
Hmmm, I’m challenged today, couldn’t find it on the page. So, how’s you tonight?
Let me try again. Derp! http://lastrealindians.tumblr.com/
Thanks for both of the links!
That is awesome! They captured that flag! Now they need to burn it!
I was confused – thanks!
I love it!
Hey, Ms. B!
Mr. McEverything, your McDoubleBypass is ready.
Hello to all realmsters!
Hi there, Caller! Howz thingz?
Uneventful. You guys breaking out the blankets yet?
Have been – The aspen are turning and there’s a base layer of snow on the divide. Looking into some firewood, time to cut, split and stack that chit.
Hey Caller is that 2k beer filling that phone?
Too rich for my blood, and I like good beer.
Some washed ashore after the Team Oracle celebration… I pawned them to buy MOAR BEER.
Hey tg. Loved your murdering the kids analogy.
It was a good one, you outdid yourself! Hi, tg!
Port warrior. So very good to see you.
Poet… port… 🙄
😉 How have you been? I hope all is well?
Adequate enough, but I need some sort of breakthrough.
Stay positive and you’ll get closer to the breakthrough, if though you need muscle to break through let me know.
Anyway- the Grandmothers somehow captured those assholes’ Nazi flag. Gotta love it. 😀
Good for them.
Never underestimate Grannies.
That explains the odd juxtaposition…now I love it.
More high school soccer tonight. They were playing the team which finishes last in the conference. Nice easy win. 5-0, everyone got lots of time to play. They would have scored more goals but they kept missing, and the other team’s keeper was pretty good. The subs played most of the second half and even scored a goal.
They are on a roll. Congrats.
Seven in a row.
And they have never lost a game that my son finished in. They lost the game when he got the concussion, and they lost three games when he was out.
Hi, CPA – congrats to your son! Oh – and his team. 😉
Good! I hope they continue on this and bring in a State Championship!
That would be nice. It’s been a few years since they made it to State. They have a decent shot because they broke up division one into two divisions, so they don’t have to go up against the bigger schools, but they play in a conference with a lot of division one schools.
Winning State is special! It will be something they can claim forever. It is hard to win it, but if they keep playing the way they are they will have a great chance.
Unfortunately one of the highly ranked teams in their section, but they played very solidly against a team that beat the number one team in their division. It’s not unthinkable.
Which will only make it more amazing if they can beat them. They have momentum, sometimes that is really the difference maker, as long as they don’t think too highly of their skills and remain level-headed they will have a shot.
Hiya, CPA. Your boy must be the hammer.
Georgie Zimmerman’s ex is making the rounds, pretty much saying fat boy was guilty. No shit, huh?
Exactly. A lot of stupid people wanted to believe him, but the evidence said otherwise.
gotta love the deep south,
It’s all about “belief” in the reich-wing world, facts (or sanity) be damned.
(She better be looking over her shoulder.)
and wearing kevlar………….
Hey there, TG!
love her G*D DAMN timing
she was married to George, not the sharpest knife, brightest bulb, etc, etc…………………
Greetings, Cobalt! I think she is doing this to make certain she doesn’t get killed if someone goes after George. Distancing herself from him now out of safety concerns.
I think it’s more that GZ has come unhinged and became a danger to her.
Loose cannons are dangerous.
“become” you say!?! 😉
Gee, what a surprise. HIya, Cobalt!
Seems to be slowly dawning on her. Hiya, Dawg!
My guess is that she always knew. Maybe thought that a guilty verdict would have ended her worries, then that dumb assed, hayseed jury ruined her life.
I was rolling in it, earlier! Hi, CBD! I seem to miss you here lately!
Hi, MsB. Sorry, I’ve been hard to find lately. Busy, busy, busy with work and lots of family stuff lately. Added to that I’m playing a lot of music. The end result is I don’t have much to add to current issues. I’m out of the loop…………
Well, we all miss you when you aren’t here, I know that! I’ve been very busy too. Lots of work at home, trying to equalize my internet time with the rest of my life, such as it is! Good to see you, sweetie. 😀
I saw that. The ole he isn’t who I thought he is. Real shocker.
He must have promised her ‘riches’ to keep her mouth shut – and didn’t pay up! A woman scorned ……
I made a point to compliment the officials who did a fine job. After yesterday can’t ever take that for granted.
Project Runway pissed me off tonight, they did a double elimination tonight, and a woman they allowed to be safe, had the worst dress, and a very talented woman they kicked off. I thought she was going to be the top two finalists
How many reality shows are based on the old children’s game musical chairs. Every round someone gets cut, and sometimes it seems random.
Kind of why I don’t own a tv. I get enough angst from the web.
hey neb and cg, and all
I’m going to read and go to bed. My cold has been killing me.
Niterz, CPA. I know how you feel – I have one and a sore throat – it’s horrible.
I hope you feel better soon!
So sorry, RL.
Thanks, tg. It’s already hit my chest – drats.
Bed good. Headcold yukkie. Take care, CPA.
Take care, CPA
Take care of yourself – sleep well.
I hope you feel better pronto, CPA.
get well soon
Sleep well and feel better, soon.
Mars Water Surprise in Curiosity Rover Soil Samples!
I read a neat article about Mars today, I’ll try to find it right now.
It would be neat of they do find more. What if they found a piece of metal!!
I’m moving to Mars and I’m gonna start a garden to help create an atmosphere.
Take your equine friend, and you’ll have the fertilizer… 😉
I like your thinking.
There ya go!!
Keep it on Mars or the Republicans will threaten to release it.
They may already be infected with it!
Good read, Neb. I’ve thought about it, too and about them bringing back some microscopic wormamajiggie or somethin’
It would be something neat to write about in speculation. Though it would suck if the person that was sick could never return home.
To hell with Fiji Water. Mars Water is what everyone is clamoring for.
Mars H2O for the 1%.
Let’s send them up right away. It’s a tax haven I hear.
And no gun laws!
And we can in good conscience! They may starve to death but they’ll have plenty of water.
Coolth! Hiya, Sis – how’s you?
Cobalt, did you see the story about the woman in Florida who got 20 years for firing a *warning shot* toward her husband who had abused her won a new trial on appeal?
Yeah, saw that case some months ago. Seems FL values ceiling plaster more than a young black life. I pray she wins and gets an enormous cash award from the state.
She’s here in Jax! There’s been a helluva campaign going on for Marissa. Meanwhile, the abusive and violent sob ex-husband with an extensive criminal history was their star witness! More of Angie’s doing.
Better not run into these guys on Mars! http://youtu.be/FtKXzn_LLbA :

Mickey & Sylvia – No Good Lover:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LDUBo1w_Rk
His album, ‘In the ’50s: Hits, Git & Split’ never leaves my cd player. Friggin’ great compilation lp.
Gotta count those zzzzzzz’s
“Speaker John A. Boehner signaled Thursday that the House would not simply vote on the version of the continuing resolution the Senate sends back, running up against a timeline that could suggest at least a temporary government shutdown.”
(it really ticks me off that their paychecks and endless perks continue in the event of a shutdown.)
