That’s not nice. I’m not going to let poor little Buddy Boy see that. It would break his heart…….
Hey Jack, while visiting friends I got to watch some television news and weather. I see that NYC has set new records in 2015 for the first Christmas where the temps have yet to fall below freezing. The report said that New Yorkers are enjoying record high temps in the fifties. The only ones wearing winter jackets are the tourists from Miami.
I hope people now realize that those who pooh pooh-ed global warming were a bunch of self serving Aholes. The time has come where the evidence is too overwhelming for any sane individual to refute.
I saw last night some DENIERS claiming that some NASA finding about Antarctic ice shelf expansion means there’s no Global Warming—Idiots, completely misconstrued the study. The earth temps have risen 2 to 3 degrees in the last 200 years—the industrial revolution.
Bit of musical history. That song I posted on the previous page, ‘Just Walkin’ in the Rain’ by the Prisonaires. was loved by a teenager named Elvis Presley. It was because of that song that Elvis went to Sun Records, where it had been recorded, and recorded a song for his mother. The rest is history.
Hey Tio, thanks for this. Interesting to see how different musical talents influence others.
Lawyers for Gitmo are now saying that it’s the Obama administration that is responsible for not closing Gitmo. And not obstruction by congress as Obie claims.
He will use executive Order to close it and deflect the responsibility on Republicans.
sounds like a plan! 🙂 I luv it!
Raining and overcast, sandal day though ..surprise guests tomorrow so..more cooking and music going overhead 🙂
Why is this a thing with cats? I have no clue:
In Merica this would have ended badly…well those things are used to torture people I’m sure.
I’m sure it would have.
Whatcha up to?
I’m jumping in and out, the Mrs, is taking a nap she was busy yesterday. Did the big guy get things done in the rain? Actually why didn’t you help?
Oh yeah, back ages ago, in bed asleep now.
It’s not always about you, poor big guy.
A tortoise gets mugged by a gang of snails. Did you get a look at them asks the policeman. No, it all happened so fast, says the tortoise.
Made some chicken tikka masala, yum! My hands are still burning from contact with the serrano chili!
Ok nobody to play with so I’ll point out to those on Santa’s naughty list–
Yeah I saw it. I owned it. I know I took it way too seriously. Haven’t reconciled any other way to take it. Define the word dilemma.
Just got back from seeing “The Big Short”. Playing Led Zeppelin at full volume as I write this. Why did I become a computer engineer. WTF – I should have gone into finance. I am so clueless it pains me.
yup “finance”, that’s where the -real- money is! fleece the serfs!
I wish I could just chill. Unfortunately this may take a while.
Me too screw being a nice guy—the earth will be pillaged those with the money will live their short lives as G-ds and then there be nothing left.
I haven’t got it in me.
Guantánamo Bay lawyers call bluff on Obama’s promise to close prison | US news | The Guardian
Obama made his vow to close Guantánamo within a year on his second day in the White House in 2009. In recent months, he has stepped up the rhetoric, promising to redouble efforts to close the prison while also heavily criticising the Republican-controlled Congress for blocking moves to transfer prisoners out of the prison to the US mainland.
Anonymous briefings by Pentagon officials have also indicated that the administration is to speed up the process of transfers of detainees. The New York Times reported earlier this month that the defense secretary, Ashton Carter, has approved 17 transfers of lower-level detainees and would try and push them through by the end of January.
But attorneys at the sharp end of representing the detainees are protesting that though the pace is being picked up in reviewing cases, it remains too sluggish to meet the January 2017 deadline. They see Obama’s criticism of Congress as a smokescreen to obscure the fact that a primary source of the current inertia lies not on Capitol Hill but within his own administration.
As I see the worse thing that impacted his tenure– beyond his MOST fervent supporters was that in keeping (early days) his LIBERAL ethos ( which for the most part we projected on him, he is more moderate than lib)—is that he loaded his advisory cabinet with the wrong people and never stopped.
In doing so he took a lot of his base closer to the center than they’ll ever recognize or admit.
Very true. He brought all the wrong people into his administration. The exact opposite of who he should have brought on board. Why? Who did he owe? And what did he owe them?
