Interesting angle to the ESPN writer fired for the “Chink in the Armor” comment.
Nice time lapse from the Space Station and pics from the Lightning Imaging Sensor.
Flying Yearlong Nanoparticle Qualification
Nice video. . . although the annoying singing made me want to cut a bitch!
Comment by Cyn on April 25, 2012 6:52 pm
Are there shirtless men and singers that make me want to peel off panties on this new poat?
(Unless Jewstin drops by – and we aren’t his type IYKWIM)
Mrs. Caruthers was away overnight, so I’ve had to feed the lawn ornaments 3 times now.
Your garden gnomes eat stuff?
From space, it appears that there are harbors in California that could be commercially valuable. This is useful information.
It’s California, though. You’d get the port built, and they’d find a smelt or toad that needed saving and shut it down.
No, the giant animals I’m not allowed to use for purposes of manual labor do.
Roamy, there’s a good documentary on the Shuttle that’s been running on the Smithsonian Channel.
Fucking space pens!
A guy (MCPO?) calls the company and orders their 10 day – 5lb weight loss program. The next day, there’s a knock on the door and standing before him a voluptuous, athletic, 21 year old babe, dressed in nothing but a G-string and a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign around her neck.The sign reads, ‘If you can catch me, you can have me.’
Without a second thought, he takes off after her. A few miles later huffing and puffing, he finally gives up. The same girl shows up the next nine days, and the same thing happens. On the tenth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 5lbs as promised.
He calls the company and orders their 10 day – 10lb program.
The next day there’s a knock at the door and standing before him is the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life.
She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes , a G-string and a sign around her neck that reads, ‘If you catch me, you can have me’.
Well, he’s out the door after her like a shot. This girl is in excellent shape and despite his best efforts, but no such luck. So for the next nine days, the same routine happens with him gradually getting in better and better shape. Much to his delight on the tenth day when he weighs himself, he discovers that he has lost another 10lbs, as promised. He decides to go for broke and calls the company to order their 10 day – 25lb program.
‘Are you sure?’ asks the representative on the phone.. ‘This is our most rigorous program.’
‘Absolutely,’ he replies, ‘I haven’t felt this good in years.’
The next day there’s a knock at the door and when he opens it, he finds a huge muscular guy standing there wearing nothing but pink running shoes, a G-String and a sign around his neck that reads,
‘If I catch you, you’re mine.’
He lost 31lbs that week.
Andy, I don’t get the Smithsonian Channel. I’d probably cry watching it anyway.
*signs up for the 10 day – 25lb program. Twice*
That joke is older than Hotspur!
There’s something older than Hotspur?
Time to watch, “Paprika”.
Pussy is undefeated.
Cyn, your program would be Michael Moore, or Chaz Bono.
Sorry, its in the rules.
*gets tranq gun*
*signs up for 10lb program*
>> I’d probably cry watching it anyway.
Parts are quite sad. Early into it there was a little video snippet of Ronald McNair explaining some gizmo or another. It’s kind of startling when you know what’s coming later.
I’ll TiVo it and send you a DVD. It really is excellent.
Shut up and take my money
Did anybody rebroadcast a game without the express written consent of anybody else today?
Ha, someone took a marketing class!
Any of you folks sew? (I used to, but had to give it up)
Here’s a really cute blog by a sweet gal who is into retro clothing:
Funny joke, Roamy!
Mr. TiFW just made me bacon, eggs, and potatoes for dinner.
He’s gonna make somebody a great wife some day…..
Andy, I don’t know if I can adequately convey the atmosphere (heh) at work right now. A bunch of people were laid off, a bunch more took a buyout or retired, and I have to wonder if I’m a chump for staying. I didn’t sign up to push paper. I didn’t sign up to watch someone else work on the hardware. Thank the good Lord I still have good and meaningful work to do, but it’s more and more obvious that either the bureaucracy has won in terms of make-work for people, or SLS is just really slow getting moving.
I want to open up an experiment again and say, “Wow, look at that!” I want to see the faces of the kids like the ones involved in the tomato and basil seed experiments when we tell them, there’s no answer in the back of the book, we’re counting on you to observe and tell us what happens. I see on the web, on Youtube, thousands of people coming out to see Discovery fly by, and I KNOW there’s support for exploration out there. I want to see American astronauts flying on American rockets again, dammit.
And no, this is not BiW hacked into Roamy’s account.
Hear, hear, Roamy! http://i.imgur.com/nZqak.gif
Oh, my, goodness, I almost linked my favorite, “shut up whore” video… just because. That would have been poor timing.
Sorry RFH. Muslim outreach is just crazy. Muslim taunting on the other hand……….
>> I want to see American astronauts flying on American rockets again, dammit.
Roamy’s got The Right Stuff™
I can’t wait until she’s got more work in this field. Cuz that means we’ll be having fun again.
Did anyone ever explain why NASA should be making Muslims feel better about their lack of science advancement in the two thousand years?
Just finished processing 80lbs of chicken parts into managable packages of dog food. Could be a vegitarian for 24 hours after that.
Did anyone ever explain why NASA anyone should be making Muslims feel better
Could be a vegitarian for 24 hours after that.
>> Did anyone ever explain why NASA should be making Muslims feel better about their lack of science advancement in the two thousand years?
Liberal PC multi-culti bullshit? Just spitballin’ here.
As Dennis Miller says, our armed forces are doing a great job. They are killing the jihadis faster than the jihadis can kill themselves.
Seems both get their wish, that way.
That’s sorta what I looked like, pupster. Grinding gizzards is unpleasant.
Because we’ve apparently got a bunch of money lying around that we really weren’t using for anything else.
AD, pups, the president would like to have a word with you.
And by have a word, I mean pass the ketchup.
Sean, when obamacare kills off all those seniors (sorry, MCPO), we’ll be able to use all that Medicaid cash.
Oh, happy birthday to Panama Banana when/if she shows up.
The only reason my dogs wouldn’t bite him back, Andy, is because they have much better culinary taste than to eat that POS.
“when obamacare kills off all those seniors”
Also the only ones that know what freedom is like.
>> Also the only ones that know what freedom is was like.
How could they know freedom? Big Government wasn’t around to take care of them!
Andy and Hotspur are the same!
Do you need gloves or other protective clothing when dealing with that much sarcasam, Jay?
Evening all. ‘Sup?
Liberal PC multi-culti bullshit?
Ding, ding, ding. You win a cookie.
There’s two NASAs. There’s the Muslim outreach part and the part I’m in. There’s a Facebook-like website at work that pisses me off every time I go look at it. Some of it’s reasonable – “hey, I’m looking for this info”, some of it is personal blogs where, no shit, this one woman blogged on how the clouds looked like blowfish (which made me wonder if they were still drug-testing at work). Maybe I’m too left-brained, but I really don’t give a shit about the clouds unless someone is about to fly through them.
Next week is “stand down for safety day”. I plan on cleaning up my office and my lab and avoiding as much as the bullshit as possible.
Not much, Revvy. Wife just got back from a 2-day work trip and had to go straight to bed so she could get up at 4 and go back. I told her to blow off the carpool and go in at 10.
Her work ethic is dumb sometimes.
Aw, sucks Leon. Dad’s getting back from a 3 day trip tonight – he should be back fairly soon, but iunno if he has to be back in the office tomorrow.
“Her work ethic is dumb sometimes.”
She will learn.
Roamy, I’m guessing that the climate change types are sitting with the cloud watching crew.
Oso, you are correct. I got into it with one of the climate change buffoons when he said that the early snow last year was due to global warming. I said, “Do you not hear the words that just came out of your mouth? SNOW due to WARMING?!?!”
Silly Roamy, Global Warming/Climate Change/Armageddon just means extreme and changeable weather!
Cause God knows, weather was so easily predictable before the 2000s. The weathermen were ALWAYS right back then, after all!
Scott and Vmax,
$20K seems awfully high to me, but it’s a F350 turbo diesel custom conversion with only 77K. What do you guys think?
used car blog?
I love how weather isn’t climate with those people. Until it is.
The whole damned scam is so anti-science it’s amazing.
That. Was. Awesome.
Pupster – Trucks like that make me nostalgic for Highschool when my best friend only had a big fuck-off truck like that to drive. The looks we got when two tiny blonde chicks jumped out of that monster of a vehicle were priceless.
Clouds can be VERY interesting, when you’re above a layer and flying around towering cumulus in the bright sunshine, as if they were pylons on a ski-slope, at 150+mph.
Especially when you’re looking for a hole to get down through to get on the ground before you run out of gas! Trust me on this!
Won’t do it again.
Oh, sorry. Please tell us more about the recordstoreyankeescoronaclarinetsoftballcoversongstheory.
I’m not complaining….. In fact, I prefer that subject far more than any that you mentioned.
What’s that gauntlet doing on the floor of the blog?
h8ers gonna h8
Have you started phase one of SB yet, Pups?
Please, tell me all about it!
That looks like a pretty nice truck! I can’t imagine what I’d do with it, especially with the price of diesel, but it seems very nice for 20k$
Anitas 1998 Ranger Xtra-Cab 4WD is all the truck we need with our little 4-acre plot.
Chrispy, it is a lot more truck than I need for sure, but I’m smitten.
I’m liking this truck so far, but it’s really hard to get a good idea of it’s true value.
Any chance you can make an animated gif out of it?
That would really help me a lot, kthnxbai…
Because shut up, that’s why?
big, gelatinous bones…
first time I spend more than 10 minutes at H2 in two days and even I know that scott linked that already…
and in this very thread!
It was funny then.
It’s just annoying now.
“$20K seems awfully high to me, but it’s a F350 turbo diesel custom conversion with only 77K. What do you guys think?”
Sounds fair to me. I expect 300,000 out of my turbo diesel and F350s have a good reputation. Listen to Vmax.
IMO, I would not buy this truck.
It’s kinda rude.
Hey, it was new to me.
Roamy, this guy seems to have some pretty good stuff to make a case against AGW:
It wouldn’t have been if you read this blog…
Oh, who am I kidding?
NO one reads this blog…..
I never read upthread. Or the thread itself, actually.
Andy is Breitbart?
I’ve found that this practice saves me oodles of time
Andy only reads the comments, same as Andrew…
I hope he lives MUCH longer.
I hope he lives MUCH longer.
You’ve obviously never shared a hotel room with him…..
I do not have access to the pricing information any longer pups, but a cuz in law bought a 05 F250 4×4 Turbo Diesel for $15k a few months ago he is keeping it because he thinks it is worth $40k retail
A 94 full retail might be $20k
But Paul is not a dealer or anything so you ought to do close to him!
Offer $15 go to $16 tops
yannow, I just realized….
I’m the H2 slut.
I’ve slept in more other Hostages hotel rooms than sohos and PJ combined.
I’m not exactly sure how I feel about this….
You’re a vicious bastard, aren’t you? NTTAWWT.
I’ve only ever met BiW and XbradTC.
I’d love to meet Roamy, Cyn, Ca rin, Revvy, Beasn, TiFW, Lipstick, and Mare. Nobody EVER meets Mare…
Those are NOT pillows!
I’ve only ever met BiW and XbradTC.
I must admit, those are two of the Hostages I’ve met.
I’d love to meet Roamy, Cyn, Ca rin, Revvy, Beasn, TiFW, Lipstick, and Mare.
eh, that was alright, I guess…
I will now rate the hugs of each of the wimmens you have listed:
all the rest
Those are NOT pillows!
what about those Bears?
We got us a game in Texas
Wiser’s a fluke?
wow. Texas fans are real douchebags. Can’t even give the foul ball to the kid
wiserslut AKA wiserfluke
Green is not your color, Vmax….
Awwwwwww…. someone got the kid a ball…. while the douchebags next to them just act like nothing is wrong……
Wiser – I don’t give good hugs? ;_;
Of course, the fact that that kid was crying because he didn’t get his ball means he is destined to be a life-long Texas Rangers fan.
You don’t hug me. You sorta put your arms kind of around me while you stare at your dad and mouth “It’s okay… it’s not a real hug…”
Lies and calumny.
I love calumny, especially with marinara sauce….
I’m ‘Pretty Damn Sure’ that if Wiser, me, or anyone, gave Revvy a ‘Good Hug’, that West would kill them on the spot.
Not Gonna go there. Wouldn’t be prudent. Not at this juncture.
Although Revvy is ‘Cute as a Bug’, I would not give her a “real hug”, if West was there.
I love calumny, especially with marinara sauce….
If it’s cooked too long it gets really rubbery.
XD And ChrisP doesn’t even know what Dad looks like. His hat alone is intimidating enough.
Although Revvy is ‘Cute as a Bug’,
OMG, you don’t even know……
seriously, Revvy redefines cute…… she has totally made “cute” an obsolete term…. after Revvy, there is no other person, place or thing that can ever reach the level of “cute” that Revvy has achieved…. Revvy is cute to the power of 1000….. Revvy is cute like the sun is warm….
That’s the nicest thing wiser has ever said about anyo…
Heyyyyyy … who stole wiser’s login?
And then once we get past Revvy’s looks, her personality makes her even cuter, as if that were even possible.
helluva situation we got here Wiser
Aaaaaaaaand we’re done. Thanks for coming to town Yankees
Aaaaaaaaand we’re done. Thanks for coming to town Yankees
does anyone drive a Nissan Murano or Rogue? If so what are your thoughts?
does anyone drive a Nissan Murano or Rogue?
I don’t drive either of these, but please… for me….. get a red one.
Baseball doesn’t count until mid June anyway.
B’awwww… thanks Wiser ^_^
>> Baseball doesn’t count until mid June anyway.
/Red Sox and Cubs fans
the only games that are fun now are the ones that get bizarre….
like coming back from 9 runs down to win….
stuff like that.
Excellent pitching by the hurling Darvish last night and tonight was almost a give-away, considering the starter and the relievers that the Yanks used….
But hey…. you won…. YAY FOR YOU!!!!
I meant every word, darlin’.
And then it stops counting in early September….
The mazda cx5 maybe
Now this is a car ad
right back atcha babe….. yannow… in a fatherly sort of way…..
Apparently DiT doesn’t read upthread either.
>> And then it stops counting in early September….
Just in time for football, like God intended.
Holy shit, that’s fucking funny!!!!
Okay… I’m good with that too…..
Sohos, Murano okay, Rogue not so much
Speaking of which, here’s the first video I’ve seen of the Obama booing at Fenway last week. They just caught the tail end of it, but the commentary is funny.
*presumes this has already been posted*
Definitely the Mazda CX5 Sohos!
What is this baseball you keep talking about?
sohos – I drove a Murano for a week – okay, but underpowered for really hauling ass when needed.
You also need to look at Subarus Sohos.
Thanks yall. Off to study more cars
Subaru? Sohos doesn’t wear flannel.
I’ve decided I like the look of the new Camaro.
I used to own a 76 Camaro – accepting the new one was a challenge for me.
I drove a Subaru Sohos once in Iowa
Very comfortable, nice pick-up, very tight steering
overall, a good ride….
Old stereotypes, osoloco. Subaru is one of the best auto lines out now … safest (entire line) period … highest resale value (Outback) period.
Sohos doesn’t wear flannel.
Oso – Hey! I drive a Subaru.
I’ve never seen a Subaru Sohos. Does it come with one of those headlight bras?
CB, I am surrounded by Coexist bumpered Subaru drivers. NM must not have gotten the message yet about stereotypes.
from what I’ve heard, it’s a bit smaller than on previous models, but still very attractive
One of my best friends drives a Subaru. She’s a flannel wearing parrothead.
osoloco, I have Obama bumpered Volvos here in MA.
buy the Subaru then slap on one of my coexist stickers….
Where I live, Subaru Outbacks and Foresters have taken the place of larger SUV’s and minivans. More likely the drivers here are wearing khakis and polos … flannel not so much.
The coexist stickers here are typically on pieces of crap cars.
Now THIS is a car!
Both my sisters drive Forresters. They’re both very good, very reliable cars. Good accel, tight steering, comfortable ride.
I have an Outback, the model that never dies.
I named it Wyoh.
Whole Foods and REI always have lots of Subaru Outbacks in the parking lot. We are surrounded by hippies. The kind that shop at REI and Whole Foods not the stinky OWSers.
I haven’t owned a “car” in over 12 years. I drive a pickup, and the wife drives an Expedition.
Oh, hell, I wondered what wiser was talking about with the foul ball. Just saw the video. What a couple of douchebags.
I agree they are very good, reliable cars. I will still make fun of the people in ABQ that drive them.
Headlight bras have extra padding to suppress the, uh, high beams.
Night, ladies and mendoucous twatwaffles.
Work will call early tomorrow.
Man everybody went to derp early tonight.
Next time Sohos shows:
My sil drives a murano. Decent car but back seats are uncomfortable as hell. I like my wife’s ford xplorerer a lot better.
Morning tidbit from WSJ:
One of Mr. Romney’s trickiest challenges will be how to handle Mr. Obama’s, er, veracity. More than any President we’ve seen, this incumbent is willing to say things that aren’t in the area code of the truth. Thus he gives himself credit for the natural gas drilling boom, the deficits are still Mr. Bush’s fault, Mr. Obama has never raised taxes, and “green jobs” in his dream economy are blooming by the millions.
That’s going to leave a mark.
In a serious country, with a half assed serious electorate, Romney’s campaign ads would consist of simply contrasting O’s verbiage w the facts. And the race would already be over. But doing so in this unserious country, with this valley girl electorate would be suicidal. Because of….racism. Or something.
Who’s the complete and total asshole that left the dog out last night?
Me. That’s who. Poor thing.
Wow. All night? My dogs would have gone to one of the kid’s rooms windows and started barking.
They do NOT like being out when we’re in. If we’re gone, they’ll spend all day out there.
Apparently the slogan “Obama’s Not Working” is racist. Have they seen his schedules lately? Golf and fundraising.
I have to go to the D again today. sigh.
Meeting with a few folks to show the house and pay a bill downtown. You guys would NOT believe my property taxes. I don’t even want to tell you. It makes me sick.
But everything wrong with Detroit can be explained by that number.
Today he has TWO events. 10:30 daily briefing, and then meet with VP around 4:30 or something.
Can’t you guys be funny for me for a bit before I have to go. Bank doesn’t open until 9:30 and I need a stinking certified check I have to meet a woman at NOON at my house and another at 2.
I think Wiser and Andy are up. I see a light under their door.
Where’s Lauraw. Mayhaps she can call them for me … have them come and entertain me?
Oh, and Michelle is flying all over the country this week. At TWO locations, she’s having people GREET her as she gets off the airplane.
And THAT folks, is how you get the taxpayer to pick up their campaign expenses.
Yeah, from 10pm until 6am, in light rain and 40F. She couldn’t even go under the deck. I think she hid under a pine tree. I heard her barking, but I thought it was another dog because a trick of light convinced me she was on the futon when I looked. I should have gone down and checked at the door.
I feel sick.
‘Obama isn’t working’ is the same slogan used by Cameron, although switch Obama for Labour. It was also used by Thatcher in the 80s.
‘We can’t go on like this,’ was also widely used by Cameron, so I’m pretty sure we’ll see that from Romney as well.
Well, I think you owe that doggie a few of your meatballs or something.
Lucky for you Leon, dogs are forgiving. You can lock ‘em in a trunk of a car for a few hours, and when you let them out you are their BEST FRIEND EVER.
Somehow, Zelda knocked a small lamp off my nightstand last night. She was so worried about what she’d done, she slept by the door. LOL. I didn’t know what had fallen (I was asleep) until this morning. Kinda funny, though. She usually sleeps right next to my side of the bed.
Rocketboy is a stagehand for the school play. He wasn’t in his school uniform, and I said, “You’re not going to get a demerit for that, are you?” He answered, “I have to wear black. Racist.” And we both laughed.
Spinach doesn’t even have any fucking calories, how did anyone get snowed into thinking it was a fuel source?
She seems mostly okay, just really tired. Her tail is down but still wagging.
I eat spinach everyday. I really want pizza. I dont want to get up. I need a mental health day but no way I am getting one
On the down side, my wife didn’t kill me, so I have to live with the guilt.
I need to read up thread. Sorry about your doggie Leon
Hey, did anyone see this car ad?
I get to take Mini-me to school this morning. Y’all have a good day.
You’re a good egg, Leon.
All of the columns from the leftists today are trying to paint Romney as EXTREME and RADICAL. I don’t get this tactic.
She’s snoring on the couch now. I’d worry less if she wasn’t 15.
MJ, near as I can tell, the tactic being employed by the leftist media is to fire up the republican base by painting Romney as a rightwing nutcase. That way, Obama loses and they don’t have to keep defending the indefensible. They’d rather be on the attack anyhow.
Every time I hear “Romney is to the right of Goldwater”, it gets me that much more fired up about voting for him.
“I don’t get this tactic.”
Women and the squishy middle don’t like far right wing. They are hoping Romney will defend this by coming out and claiming to be a moderate, which will piss us off.
Hey Leon, Obama ate a dog.
I think Romney is too smart for that, so we will probably be hearing it for a while. He will be closing Planned Parenthood, outlawing contraceptives, burning books……….
I think I saw a funny car ad somewhere……back in a minute.
*wonders if Jewstin eats dog face, like Obama.
Well I’m sure that’s just fine. Last night clearly disqualifies me for office, however.
You’re a good doggie daddy, Leon. Sometimes this kind of thing makes you appreciate them just a little bit more.
Wife had her when we met, so she’s technically my stepdog. That makes this harder. She’s my dog to me, and I’m sure to her, but still.
Awright, I’m done doing personal drama. Thanks guys.
We did that with our cat and we both about pooed the next morning. We couldn’t find him, and an all morning search left us wondering if we were going to see him again (coyotes). I found him after my “one last walk/bike around the neighborhood yelling his name and shaking his food container.”
He likes other creatures and ventured into a neighbor’s yard, they had a dog and he went right up to him and the dog flipped out.
Our neighbor said his dog went nuts because his dream of seeing a cat in their yard came true, he had to pull his dog away and stick him in the house. My cat was just hanging out watching him do the yard work.
The neighbor was doing yard work and out of desperation I asked if he’d seen a cat, and he said, “yes, he’s right here under the bushes.”
And then I found a bucket full of meth.
Time to let the chickens out and head to work.
Scott, they pulled the car ad but somebody sent me a screencap of it.
Good morning, Hotsausages
*hands Cyn a cup of coffee and some bacon*
Zeke is on probation for waking me up at 5:30 wanting to play.
Of course I could not go back to sleep. Bad Dog!
Guten Morgen, Cyn! I hope everyone is having a lovely day!
Thanks Dave. Mwah!
*pulls out a spoonful of coffee, cooks it down and loads it into a syringe, uses bacon to tie off arm, injects coffee*
Aaaand here we go!!
What is probation, vmax? I would imagine it’s absolutely horrible for Zeke.
Like a single dog treat, instead of 2?
I’ve had a post brewing in me about fraud, welfare, businesspeople, and the presumption of guilt for quite a while.
It just galls me that there’s a multi-layered lattice of hurdles, reporting, and oversight when you want to make a few bucks under your own steam, but we can’t seem to erect the smallest controls over who can live off the dole.
Did I say ‘brewing?’ I meant ‘festering.’
Interesting thought laura. I’m not generally inclined to talk about Smashmorshin (see I can’t even say it) but it seems to me that given the strong feelings around it, it should be regulated to the highest possible degree. Not starting a business, or removing a dead tree from your property, or selling a house, or replacing a window, or business in general.
Your labor needs to be micromanaged, but smashmorshin should be as loose as a Colombian hooker.
When Bear died I buried him in the yard next to Max. It was hot hard work, I took breaks. A city truck circled my block endlessly. Finally the guy got out of his truck and asked me if I had a permit.
To bury my dog?
He apologized and said he thought I was doing unpermitted utility work.$500 fine helps the city make up budget shortfalls.
Live Free or…Sorry Sir you need a permit for that.
I spit on what we have become.
Jay, can you please check your she male.
It is double secret probation Jay. Zeke doesn’t know I am grumpy for waking me up early.
vmax – Yup – you need a license to drive or to have a dog, you need a permit to do almost anything to improve your living space (assuming the EPA doesn’t stop you). But you can have a few kids and get mo money from the goverment for them without so much as a “by your leave”.
On a different topic – we’ve chosen not to bury our dogs anymore. We have them cremated, and the ashes sealed in nice little teak (or maybe cedar) boxes. We’ll take them with us if/when we move. Freaks out our families, but we don’t care.
Cremation was $150 more that I did not need to spend.
you need a permit to do almost anything to improve your living space
You fuckers need to move to rural America. I’ve sawed down a dead tree, transplanted half a dozen new trees, tilled front and back and sodded front in the last year without even a glance from city, county, state, or federal govt.
Listen; welfare fraud is so mainstream now, that it’s not even really fraud anymore. We see it all the time, entire neighborhoods full of ablebodied people and no one works. They’re in front of me in line at the grocery store. We see them. It’s so obvious it’s not even fraudulent anymore. This is just how people live.
And when these folks change the oil in their car? They park over a storm drain and guess where the old oil goes, my friend. And there is nothing- NOTHING any EPA officer will do about it or even notice, inspect, or give the slightest indication that they give a fuck.
Meanwhile, when I put a non-approved window on my house, on a side that can’t be seen from the street, I get a flyer from the town with an implicit threat of legal action. Because people are walking around in my backyard while I’m at work, looking for shit to start with me.
And the moment I purchased this business, I got visits from Weights & Measures and Fire Marshall Bill, making sure I have everything safe and fair, because the presumption is that I’m going to cheat somehow, the moment I get the chance.
This is getting to be so not worth it.
So, AD, Obama called to ask, what you’re saying is, you like your dog well-done?
You have the money, laura, and Uncle Sugar wants his share. He doesn’t bother the 47%, because you can’t get blood from a turnip, so to speak.
Only tax the ones with money.
J’ames, others. The dirty secret of the 47% is, the vast majority of them THINK they are paying income tax. They MUST be, because it’s coming out of their paycheck! In this age of TurboTax, how many filers take the time to actually suss out the taxes withheld, versus the returns, EIC, deductions, etc.
And I know what you mean about welfare fraud – Rebecca will qualify for a lot of stuff when she is older, but she is going to be “competing” with people who consider themselves “disabled” (“I have a hangnail and I can’t work”).
Dear Lord, the hoops you have to jump through to “qualify” your kids for this stuff, the paperwork you have to fill out, and the things you have to remember – it’s enough to drive you crazy.
And I’m just enough of a bitch to say to anyone around us who questions “why” we enroll her for this stuff, “I pay my taxes to help people like HER, not some lump who just doesn’t want to have to work for a living”.
We know a family whose son is completely wheelchair bound who will NEVER be able to do anything on his own, and he doesn’t qualify for ANY of the services that Rebecca does – he’s not in one of the “right” categories…..
But if you are “indigent”, you have an entire paid staff working on your behalf…..
Interesting Op-Ed on Rubio (Mare will cry):
Yep. If welfare were saved for the truly needy, what a country this would be.
Rubio’s speech was boilerplate neocon. He flubbed the delivery too, and it got panned on local tv.
It wasn’t that big of a deal, but it was a missed opportunity.
Does anyone remember Mr T fucking with people about cutting down his trees? People were horrified that he’s want to change his own property.
This poat stinks.
Ahem. Fick you.
Jokes about German sausage are the wurst .
A soldier who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran.
I know a guy who’s addicted to brake fluid. But he says he can stop any time.
I’m reading a book about anti-gravity and I can’t put it down.
PMS jokes aren’t funny, period.
I didn’t like my beard at first. Then it grew on me.
I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me.
What do you call a dinosaur with a extensive vocabulary? A thesaurus.
England has no kidney bank, but it does have a Liverpool.

Obama Mare ate dog!
xbrad entered ten puns in a pun contest and hoped he’d win but no pun in ten did.
**whispers in Laura’s ear that Dave purposely kilt the waterlillies she sent him**
Eh, I’m over it.
*plans xbrad’s murder*
Xbrad, who usually signs for deliveries at your place, you or your Mom?
Obama may have butchered a dog, but xbrad butchered this blog (and the English language.)
Bad! Bad xbrad! No cookie for you!
what you’re saying is, you like your dog well-done?
With salt, cheese, and a little spicey mustard.
I don’t really “sign” for packages.
I make my mark.
An “X” of course.
You should tweet that, Hotspur.
When lauraw’s ready to go Galt I’m going with her.
I’m in the d right now. Yes I’m baddass.
Do you have a hoodie on, Tray von?
I just donated $25.00 to Scott Walker again.
You all should do it too.
Dickhole killed it.
That word – I do not think it means what you think it means. You dickhole.
Who you calling’ dickhole, dickhole?
Who you calling’ dickhole
The old guy.
Oh, Chief’s not really a dickhole. He’s more of a dickweed.
You’ll have to be more specific.
The old guy in a dress.
WTF? (student loan interest rate reference)
The House GOP bill is paid by cutting health care programs Democrats treasure. The Senate Democratic version would force high-earning owners of some privately owned corporations to pay more Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes, violating Republicans’ anti-tax doctrine.
How can you pay for interest rates on college loans by raising Social Security payroll taxes? They aren’t even related!
I see where the train went off the tracks.

Lauraw, it’s also pretty bad when we’re actually considering NOT making more money because of the tax implications. Yeah, good idea to tax certain incomes at a higher rate than any one else.
It’s like people leaving California, you just get sick of being used for liberal idiocy. Seeing scum in line at the grocery store using your money to buy crap pisses me off and they want MORE of my money? Harsh?….too fricking bad.
>> How can you pay for interest rates on college loans by raising Social Security payroll taxes? They aren’t even related!
That’s not the point. The point is these increases in interest rates are being treated as revenues and already allocated into the Continuing Resolution budget lines. They’re being treated just like a tax, and they’ve already planned to spend them, so NOW if you want them to stay the same, you have to find some other way to “pay” for them.
The phrase “revenue neutral” is one you’ll be hearing more of.
Never mind the bastards gave themselves power to change the terms of a contract even though the other party has honored the terms. Something that would be illegal for a commercial lender to do.
The raw power these assholes give themselves is stunning. The federal government has no business involving itself in school loans. Not to mention how they fucked up already and artificially inflated the cost of a college education.
The question that I’d ask is, ‘why the fuck is the government the only entity that is involved in student loans?’ Oh, right. Obamacare, dog face eater.
Anyone want to bet on when “The president has no control over the price of gas” storyline ends and the “See? The President’s policies are now working, as evidenced by the lower prices at the pump!” begins after the inevitable seasonal lowering of gas prices hits when summer ends?
I’m gonna set the over/under as October 12.
Place yer bets!
Besides, they don’t really want it to pass. They need to get students interested, and not talk about the shitstorm that is the economy, especially for recent grads.
We just give too much money to the government. The states and private entities (people or corporations) take better care of their money.
Oh, I forgot to say, “FU Government leeches!!”
” The states and private entities (people or corporations) take better care of their money.”
And we give a lot more generously to charities than the liberal assholes wanting us to give more to the government.
All assholes are not liberals, but all liberals are assholes.
I can’t argue that, Hotspur.
You should never argue with me.
Yeah, it’s kind of like, all racists aren’t liberals, but all liberals seem to be racists.
Oh, I don’t know about that…
The word “lunatic” appears in at least one spot in the U.S. Code — in Title 1, Chapter 1, which covers rules of construction. Chapter 1 holds that when determining the meaning of any law, “the words ‘insane’ and ‘insane person’ and ‘lunatic’ shall include every idiot, lunatic, insane person, and person non compos mantis.”
So basically all liberals.
non compos mantis
Heh. Your autocorrect is showing.
That’s weird, all I did was cut and paste.
I was wearing a hoodie.
Looks like this poor poat was wearing a hoodie.
TEH POAT JUST WENT TO GET SOME SKITTLES AND ICED TEA!!!
Carin, did you hear Mitch Albom disdaining Obama’s news jam bullshit thing, on the radio yesterday?
You should never argue with me a Lutheran.
Did anyone else hole out from 123 yds today?
MCPO, I hope you’re talking about golf.
I think that’s bullshit, Bruce.
You should never argue with a Lutheran.
Because a battle of wits with an unarmed man is unfair.
BTW – 9 iron into about a 12 mph wind to an uphill green. I was hitting a Titleist DT Carry.
KICK HIS ASS!!!
I don’t hang around the grocery store or whatnot enough to notice whether people are on welfare or not. But here’s what I noticed when my kids were in school. And I don’t think it’s gotten any better. Teen aged chicks would get pregnant left and right. No child support cause the donor was still in school himself. Who’s paying for the food, diapers, doctors etc. I’ve got a pretty good fucking guess. At some point in time the feds will have sucked the productive class dry and there won’t be any money for feeding bastard children and they’ll die in the street. And it’ll be damned difficult for me to find a fuck to give. That’s one reason I’ve invested heavily in home defense firearms.
/cranky ol’ muhfuck
I actually wrote that screed back when y’all were still talking about welfare cheats, but got busy and didn’t hit poat button. It was too damned good to delete.
PG – Thanks for sharing. . .
No, I try to avoid listening to that sanctimonious asshole when possible. I do listen occasionally.
Is it just me?
How many miles did you run yesterday Car in, or did you puss out?
Well, I don’t usually listen to the dumbass either, but when I started my car the radio was on WJR and when he mentioned the news jam, I thought “I’ll listen to this because he’ll surely say it was no big deal, and conservatives are just being dicks about it.”
He called it totally un-presidential, which it was.
8! Puss out?
I think only total obama-bots could have had a favorable impression. Mitch tries to pretend he’s middle of the road-above all the petty partisanship, so really it was the only tact he could take.
I mean -honestly, that was embarrassing.
8? Oh, that’s good. I have six tonight, after spin. If I collapse pause my garmin, ok?
I can’t remember if you answered my questions from a few days ago. What are we going to eat at lapeerpalooza? Didn’t someone mention a pig roast?
The weather was perfect and I had the time.
Those two things rarely happen on the same day.
What are we going to eat at lapeerpalooza? Didn’t someone mention a pig roast?
that is yet to be determined.
I mean, I really won’t know what kind of roadkill is available until the last minute.
If all else fails, chicken, right?
The options are most likely raccoon, opossum, deer, or cat. Occasionally I’ll see some sort of bird or the odd turtle, but I can’t count on that.
Well, I only have one dead chicken and I buried it last week. Should I dig her up ? Throw her in the freezer?
You buried a dead chicken?
Coming here is like talking to myself at times. It’s as if the digital type is made from invisible ink. . .
Didn’t someone mention a pig roast?
So, Rosetta’s going?
Really. Could have given it to Zelda…
Has anyone seen Chief? I wanted to know how is golfing went yesterday.
Has anyone seen Chief?
Good job MCPO. I don’t think I ever holed anything further than 20 yards. I did drive a green once on a par 4. Sadly I 3 putted for par.
Like I’d wear a helment, MCPO.
MCPO, that diet is really paying off. You’re getting CUT!
A cup – sure. A helmet? Why bother?
Someone pointed out that the NHL require cups decades ago, but only required helmets in the last 10 years or so.
World’s ugliest bathroom?
Laura – Looks legit to me!
That’s not MCPO – the hair is not gray.
And who has a tie rack in the bathroom? And who choose that quacomole colored green for the bathroom?
Stolen from Mitchieville. Boy, this makes me think the American Educational System is working….WAY TO GO, LIBERALS!!
I have a friend from Colombia (not a hooker) that speaks in a completely normal voice, without being ghetto or anything, but when she texts it’s like she turns into Snoop Dogg. Kids these days.
Later, sniffers and lickers.
MJ, that idiot didn’t know basic geography. I’m guessing that guy isn’t a genius once he stops the texting. If your friend from Colombia texts like that….whew…not good.
I know, it’s weird. She’s a really nice person but I need a 25 to older-older-than-fuck dictionary to figure out half of the acronyms and abbreviations.
I didn’t feed the chicken to the dogs because I wasn’t sure why she died.
Yes, Islam is indeed a wonderful, charming, peaceful religion:
Happy fricken Arab Spring!!!!!!!!!
So where does NOW stand on the Egyptian law that men can pork their dead wives for up to six hours?
And, lucky, lucky young girls, now they ONLY have to wait until age 14 to marry some 50 or 60 year old cleric asshole! Yeah!!!!
WTF is NOW?
They better not let them drive.
National Organization for Women
Fucking bull dyke scrunts.
Hotspur…..I meant Where the F*ck is NOW.
“Fucking bull dyke scrunts.” Yes.
I’m getting all worked up…..time for kittens!!!
The options are most likely raccoon, opossum, deer, or cat.
Well, hell. Had I known what was going to be on the menu I would have sold a kidney or something.
Thank goodness, this made me laugh:
That’s pretty gross. I mean, maybe in the first few hours, but six? Savages, the lot of ‘em.
Last time I had sex with my dead wife, she farted right in the middle of it. It was really gross.
Uh, Hotspurt, that may be TMI even for this dump.
xcellent post Teresa
btw, Animals are officially better than people today
That’s nothing new for xBrad, if you’re talking inflatable ones.
If I ever holed a 123 yard shot, I would move the tee and declare it a hole in one.
I’m fresh out of dog face, so supper tonight will be a big lump of snapper, green beans and bacon, and probably fried taters unless I can come up with a pasta something or other.
Coonjew, having roast and Mash taters and gravy here
Sounds tasty, Dunn. I have a big bit of tongue in the freezer I plan on roasting before too long.
I need to make a shopping list. My freezer is well stocked, but my fridge is starting to look a little barren.
waiting for the water to boil, the home health nurse is going to check vitals then im going to eat
Dinner? Gack. I’m too busy for dinner.
Car In, that’s ok, ill save ya a bite for Lupper
“I’m too busy for dinner.”
home health nurse
I’m guessing he’s a burly fellow with a beard and a habit of mouth-breathing.
Jew, you sure have nice full dinners for a bachelor.
I need to find a substitute for noodles. Having a craving for mussels in some spicy tomato broth, with noodles.
I really enjoy cooking, Mare. It’s not a chore for me. And I love finding new recipes and ingredients to try out.
Shredded zucchini might work if you don’t cook it too long.
New Person of Interest on tonight. Be there or be square.
Hm. That’s a pretty good idea. Yeah, I like my noodles rather toothsome.
Jewstin, you’re going to make a wonderful partner one day!
That’s brilliant. Really.
“Shredded zucchini” NOOOOOoooooooooooo!
What kind of snapper Jew? All are good but Red is Fantastic So is Mutton and Cubera are too but you don’t see them in the market often.
Pipe down, Scott, you’ll eat what you get….and like it!
At tux shop now. Someone eat dinner for me.
Lauraw- spaghetti squash
I really enjoy cooking, Mare. It’s not a chore for me.
*starts coonass adoption process*
“What kind of snapper Jew?”
He already said he was out of dog face…….keep up will ya?
Red snapper. It was on sale a while ago so I got some extra to freeze.
Ha ha ha Jewstin is a smarty. http://www.marksdailyapple.com/low-carb-pasta-substitute/
And I don’t force Scott to eat what I eat. I made him bread the other day, in fact.
I’m not 100% on the ‘grains are poison’ bandwagon. People are living pretty long, healthy lives for that to be the case.
Obama hardest hit:
>> What kind of snapper Jew?”
That is an insidious libel, straight out of “The Protocols of the Elders of Snapper”
Tell your son no novelty cummerbunds.

Tribal Injun gal, 24, tiny and pretty
not as pretty as Cyn tho!
Speaking of snapper, I found snapping turtle. It was $25 a pound! I’ll go after the feral cats first.
Just remember, drunk people run stop signs. High people wait for them to turn green.
$25 a lb?
* grabs rifle, kayak, flashlight and disappears into the swamp *
Bring me back a good one, Scott.
NEW POAT UP, DILLWEEDS!
