Monday’s Muscular Motivation

Greetings and salutations, all. Monday has returned, and with it, tidings of great joy. Okay, maybe not great joy, but at least a little joy. Another week behind us, endless possibilities before us.

We’re gonna whoop some ass this week. Talk about weather, post recipes, bitch about MJ posting farm animals. It’s gonna be sweet. I hope you’ll all come along for the ride with me, and de-lurk if you’re lurking.

Lolo Jones.


Jamie Eason 1

Jamie Eason 2

I don’t know her name, but I like her braid.

I think this is a crow stand, I forget if you call it something else when the legs are crossed.

I don’t love pink, but I could learn to.

Cyber Monday, not Black Friday, but oh well.

Lazy chick. Can’t even be bothered to button her shirt.

Don’t be lazy. Button up, raise your chin, and get some things done today. Make it a day well spent.

  1. Back to work following a week off and I’m cranky. Gotta drink the coffee, suck it up and get my motivation on….thanks leon

  2. I just watched that Prius/truck video from the last post….too damn funny. Lemme guess who got her vote these past 2 prezzidizzle elections.

  3. Awright, can’t delay it any longer…off to the horsepital….

  4. My coffee finished while I was catching up on the last thread.

    I’m particularly proud that I didn’t have to tag this poat as racist.

  5. 31F now, headed for a high of 41, 20% chance of unspecified precipitation.

  6. 2, 3, and possibly black chick are the tuckers.

  7. Place your bet on which country is likely to collapse first, financially:

    A) China
    B) EU (ok, Germany. The rest of Europe doesn’t really matter)
    C) Britain (quasi EU)
    D) US
    E) Who gives a fuck? I’ll be in my bunker.

  8. Good Morning, cool peeps.

  9. Jamie Eason is not a tucker. They test you for that when you compete, and she has.

    No idea on the Cyber Monday girl. Unlikely, but I can’t be sure.

  10. I’m going with 2/3, and that last one. Excellent work, Leon!

  11. EU, then us.

  12. Tough one, MJ. China has a long history of going to war with itself just as it starts to look like a real world power, so that’s probably the way to bet.

    Europe will start Nazism over again with Greeks out in front, and the Germans will call on us for aid. Obama will be distracted by WW3, and we’ll finally get our recovery.

  13. I don’t think we’ll collapse. I think we’ll default as soon as no one in China can prove we owe them money.

  14. Jamie Eason is not a tucker. They test you for that when you compete, and she has.

    Lance Armstrong beat the system.

  15. Guh mermay.

    *groans*

    Monday.

    Oh well.

    At least it’s not Tuesday.

  16. *sniggers

  17. Testing for a Y chromosome is more reliable than the EPO check. Just sayin’.

    Also, a guy cheating to be awesome at your sport reflects very differently on your organization than allowing a man to win a women’s figure competition.

  18. I think we’ll default as soon as no one in China can prove we owe them money.
    —————————–
    Agreed. We’ll broker some sort of debt forgiveness, but it will still force the taps to be turned off. Either way, we won’t be able to borrow.

    My guess is that we’ll try to print our way out of it with QE123, and then the currency will collapse.

    OICBFOS

  19. I’ll worry about currency collapse when I start to see deals in pesos and loonies near the borders.

    *makes mental note to check on whether Canadian banks will let me open an account*

  20. Testing for a Y chromosome is more reliable than the EPO check. Just sayin’.

    The irony, though, is that if we tested littl;e what’s her name up there, she may have more testosterone in her system than Hotspur.

    Or Lance.

  21. I’ll worry about currency collapse when I start to see deals in pesos ammo.

    Fixed. Not even the border crossers hang out at the borders; those drug dealers are pretty serious about this.

  22. We may see more loonie usage up here, especially as more of them drive over here to buy things cheaper than back home. Detroit furniture and wedding dress stores already see a lot of Canuck traffic.

  23. Drive time.

  24. (what’s a loonie?)

  25. SECRET SANTA TIME

    It’s that time of year again, but Carin has been blackmailed graciously volunteered to handle this for the 2012 season. If you want to be in on the exchange, please send her an email to let her know that you’re part of the cool group.

  26. OH, nevermind

  27. Things have always been cheaper over here. When we had a cottage in Canada,we tried to buy as little as we could over there.

  28. Better yet, just phone her.

  29. There are toonies too.

  30. So we have 30 days to figure out what tax rates are going to be next year?

    This is insanity unless you believe the government is the center of the nation.

  31. Loonies?
    Toonies?

    Sounds like cartoon characters.

  32. “Canadian Dollars” takes longer to type.

  33. We put eagles on our money, they put ducks. That says something but I am not sure what.

  34. >> Jamie Eason is not a tucker. They test you for that when you compete, and she has.

    When a chick looks more like a dude than a chick, it don’t matter much to me whether she actually is a dude or not.

  35. If you think Jamie Eason looks like a dude… I really can’t help you. Clearly you’re not into human females.

  36. This is insanity unless you believe the government is the center of the nation.

    62 million Americans believe just that, and proved it earlier this month.

  37. It’s the hard-looking, bulging muscles…they are just not a standard feature on chicks, never mind hot chicks. I don’t understand how a guy would be attracted to that unless he secretly…

    *looks side eye at Leon*

    Never mind.

  38. Secretly?

  39. >> It’s the hard-looking, bulging muscles…they are just not a standard feature on chicks, never mind hot chicks.

    She actually has a pretty face, which is a shame cause the bulging muscles and veins pretty much kill it for me.

  40. 62 million Americans believe just that, and proved it earlier this month.
    ———————
    I hear you. We’re trying to figure out what next year is going to be like in terms of our monthly budget and it’s almost impossible. Insurance is going up a hundred or so a month. Property tax is going up on one place, but not the other so it’s kind of a wash–maybe. FICA is possibly going up? Income tax rates? Property tax deductions? Charitable donations?

    I can’t imagine what running a business would be like. We’re just sitting here waiting to get fucked and we don’t exactly have much.

  41. If we couldn’t rag on Leon on Mondays, this site -our very lives- would be all the poorer for it.

    You’re a good sport, Leon. A good sport, a good man, and a closet homo.

    *huggsss!*

  42. Everybody will sit on their capital, just like the last 2 years. And we will flounder. Then the Democrats will blame it on the Republicans, and increase spending, again.

  43. I’m so closeted, I haven’t even come out to myself.

  44. latent not blatant?

  45. Those evil businesspeople, sitting on their dragon hoards of cash, refusing to hire people, because a black man is president.

    This ^ actually seems like a real possibility to a lot of people.

  46. *sits on capital*

    It’s pretty comfy after you get used to it.

  47. Everybody will sit on their capital, just like the last 2 years. And we will flounder. Then the Democrats will blame it on the Republicans, and increase spending, again.
    —————————————–
    I guess I don’t see the logic of this from Obama’s perspective. If he’s really interested in a legacy, it’s going to be something like this: first black president. Lost decade, cont.

    The blame game is totally short term.

  48. …and what about that blame game? You know, we keep hearing that the reason Obama didn’t turn the economy around in his first term is that ‘they had no idea how bad it really was,’ until after a year or whatever.

    Does ANYBODY ever follow up that statement with a few simple questions?

    “Really? What did you find out about the economy a year later, that was not known in a short time after the initial collapse and recession? And when you say, ‘how bad it really was,’ what figure or formula are you using to gauge the depth of this badness that was unknown until later?”

    Because that bullshit line just falls the fuck apart under the tiniest scrutiny. And nobody asks these questions. They get the standard “we didn’t know how bad it was’ line, and stop the conversation right there.

    If they DID ask these questions in reply to that bullshit stopping technique, I believe we would see a lot of Democrats flip-flapping their lips around in abject despair at having been caught out in a laughable lie.

    This is why the media does not ask.

  49. Everybody assumes that rich people have endless money, and can afford to just give it up.

    Rich people became rich by being smart with their money. And that includes avoiding paying Uncle Sam extra. Why do they think that these extra taxes will just appear in the coffers, with no effect on the economy? When taxes come out, prices will go up, because they pass on that cost to the customer. This is the part that is always missed.

    But it’s easier to blame the rich guy. There are less of them, and it’s not to their public benefit to say “Fuck you, it’s my money, you have no right to it! I already pay 40% of the taxes, being in the top 5%.”

    Class warfare. It’s what’s for dinner.

  50. How do the Republicans win in the House? Everyone I know voted for a Democrat!

    /things journalists say

  51. I’m at a point where I could support higher rates on the super rich. $5 mill and above. All those assholes supported Obama. Fuck em.

  52. I don’t think there’s any big pile of money being kept from anybody. But many people aren’t expanding, hiring new workers, etc. In fact, they will be shedding full timers, to get away from an onerous new health care law. The money people have will in fact be saved for another day, rather than being put back in the economy.

    Nobody wants to take a risk, because there will be no return.

    The way to get more taxes is to figure out how to get rich people to spend their money. They already know how to make it.

  53. That’s the Let It Burn argument, Car in, and I’m behind it with you.

  54. End the federal deduction for state income taxes. That hits CA and NY hard.

  55. Braid Blue chick for the easy win this week. Although Love Pink chick looks cuddly.

    *secretly santas self*

  56. I’m at a point where I could support higher rates on the super rich. $5 mill and above. All those assholes supported Obama. Fuck em.
    ————————-
    This is kind of what I’m looking for from a conservative point of view. How do we propose tax increases that punish democrat voters? How do we tax the things that democrats like? How do we create division that favors us numerically?

    Tax everyone with a PhD at a higher rate because they have the ability to make more. Not that they are, but they could. Tax people who buy electric cars because we need to build the infrastructure to support them. I’m not even sure it needs to be successful, we just need to create the uncertainty.

  57. Because that bullshit line just falls the fuck apart under the tiniest scrutiny. And nobody asks these questions.

    Yep. I wrote post after post on that very point. Not because I thought it would do any good, but because I was so frustrated that nobody was asking those painfully obvious questions.

  58. Not because I thought it would do any good, but because I was so frustrated that nobody was asking those painfully obvious questions.
    ——————————–
    When the questioner hears the answer they like, they stop asking anything further. It’s the most simple way that we see bias.

  59. Shame might work. In Sweden, it’s a public spectacle to pay a shitload of income tax. The super wealthy are lauded for paying MORE than what they owe.

    Maybe we should call for the release of all tax records and shame the Buffets, Gates, etc into paying more.

  60. This is kind of what I’m looking for from a conservative point of view. How do we propose tax increases that punish democrat voters? How do we tax the things that democrats like? How do we create division that favors us numerically?

    It’s an hour long, but this is really good. Bill Whittle, just as good as his Tribes essay:

  61. I don’t know…

    I’m trying to think of issues or ways to divide the electorate in our favor.

    Gun issues are good. We always win those and the left always takes the bait. If they talk about limiting magazine capacity to 100 rounds, we just scream about gun grabbing.

    Voter ID: 60% support.

    Translate Reagan’s speeches into Spanish and buy airtime.

    I was completely wrong about the election so I’m trying to think differently.

  62. I get the feeling that repealing Obamacare will be a winning issue, after implementation. We finally learned what was in it.

    20% increase for the Pupster Family this year.

  63. Every time someone like Reagan runs, he wins. It’s just that we haven’t run Reagan. Or “Reagan” was lazy, and wanted the nomination handed to him. Or “Reagan” was taking pain medication, and bombed in the debates.

    Conservatives win. It’s just that they are busy doing other things.

  64. Call them anti-military. The left wing base always takes that bait as well.

    Call the media biased every single day, in every interview, in every cable tv segment. People already know the bias but it needs to work it’s way into pop culture. How do we make it a stereotype?

  65. I was completely wrong about the election so I’m trying to think differently.

    That explains your sudden gheyness.

  66. VDH agrees with Car in:

    http://patriotpost.us/opinion/15591

  67. Sudden?

  68. MJ, you are doing the right thing, thinking a different way. May I suggest when you have the time, listen to the video Jay linked (1:02:52). I had seen it before and am particularly interested in the part at around 50-52 minutes about “taking care of our own.” I think you will be too.

  69. Great job Leon. All frontal shots though. Is that a first for you?

  70. Who’s going to remind Obama that he said that he needed 4 more years to “fix” the economy when things don’t get any better (indeed, they will probably get much, much worse)?

    I plan on being a hardened cynic for the next 4 years – if anyone starts complaining about how bad things are/how hard they have it, the first question I’m asking is “Who did you vote for?”. The Obama voters ARE NOT going to like it when I tell them that they are getting exactly what they wanted. I have no sympathy whatsoever for those fools.

  71. Jamie Eason is not a tucker. They test you for that when you compete, and she has.
    ••••
    Lance Armstrong beat the system.

    Lance Armstrong was a dick tucker?

  72. Well, Lance did have room to tuck, since he was missing “one of the boys”.

  73. I could care less about vengeance or assigning blame anymore.

    He’s here for the next few years.

  74. Hmm. This also explains why Lance could spend so many hours comfortably in the bike saddle.

  75. leon – pic 6 is cute. she’s a she – bonus.

  76. MJ, all the more reason to watch Jay’s link. Bill Whittle isn’t assigning blame either.

    However, Teresa is correct, these idiots need to know they are getting exactly what they voted for. I’m blaming them…..continually. Leeches.

  77. “I could care less about vengeance or assigning blame anymore. ”

    high pitched screeching and wailing worked for the enemies of freedom… maybe we should give it a shot. of course foaming at the mouth hatred is an unnatural state for many of us.

  78. Love Pink FTW!!

    Also, good morning :D

  79. “I’m blaming them…..continually.”
    I agree w/u mare.
    I fear, however, that they are too stupid to understand the disaster that they have foisted upon us.

  80. I wasn’t talking about vengeance or assigning blame – merely gonna use the “Mom” approach if people start to bitch about stuff: “You made your bed, now you get to lie in it”.

    I realize that these people aren’t clever enough to think things through to their inevitable conclusion, so I’m not going to waste my time or energy trying to explain it to them – it would go over their heads anyway.

    But I’m not going to give them any sympathy, either.
    They wanted this.

  81. Interestingly enough, I’ve been reading “Gone With The Wind” the past couple of days****, and I am at the point when Reconstruction is taking place. The Yankees are imposing crippling regulations, exorbitant taxes on producers, handing out goodies to their “connected” friends, and promising the moon to all of the “takers”.

    History does, indeed, appear to repeat itself……

    ****this Daughter of the South is ashamed to admit that she has never read this entertaining and quite readable classic before now.

    *hands over GRITS card*

  82. Man oh man. I really don’t know who Jim Geraghty is any longer. He practically sells the wisdom of preserving welfare state when you read (listen) between the lines. He thinks Robertscare’s provision to keep offspring on your plan until 26 years of age is a good thing, something the gubmint had to step in to do. Also, apparently this last election was just another ordinary election with no special portents.

    Bonus supersmart pundit revelation: Republicans have a brand problem! He learned it on a cruise.

    Sheesh.

  83. and I am at the point when Reconstruction is taking place. The Yankees are imposing crippling regulations, exorbitant taxes on producers, handing out goodies to their “connected” friends, and promising the moon to all of the “takers”.

    You know… you may have come upon a perfect historical metaphor for our new dirigiste, corporate fascist nation. We are in the midst of a new, second Reconstruction.

  84. Great job Leon. All frontal shots though. Is that a first for you?

    Entirely unintentional. I guess I just wanted to see smiling faces.

  85. All frontal shots though.

    In service of dick-tuck inspection.

  86. My sausage stew came out a little too soupy. Tasty, but too much liquid.

  87. Hoo boy, 19 minutes wasted on that blow hard Geraghty.

    So, Jim, you can’t learn to go without in order to pay for something that you should be responsible for until after you’re 27?

  88. 2 generations ago, we sent 17yo men to fight and die in trenches. Now they are children for another decade beyond that age. Infantilize someone, and I guarantee they’ll stay an infant.

  89. The scariest thing is reading about the infancy of the KKK – Southerners literally had to take the law into their own hands, because the people in power were turning a blind eye to crimes being committed by their “favored” constituencies (white and black alike), and Southern whites were always presumed to be guilty.

    Really interesting reading…..

  90. Tifw, when I lived in TX, I babysat Scarlett, Rhett, Tara, and Butler.

  91. I dislike losing respect for the judgment of people whom I thought knew better. More and more the official pundits have revealed they have shit for brains. Many years ago we thought Dick Morris was privy to special insights (how we got past the toe sucking is a mystery), but his brand has been shit for the last eight years now. Krauthammer occasionally hammers the table for new gas taxes. George Will, when he isn’t suffering from hives caused by blue denim, is hosting dinners for Obama in 2008, but four years later spins fantasies about Rmoney landslides.

    Not only is the broad culture rotten, but even our so-called conservative A-list talking heads huff nothing but swamp gas. You read smarter stuff at AOS or Protein Wisdom.

    I mean, in that interview Geraghty offers evidence that the election wasn’t so lopsided by noting Michigan voters turned down collective bargaining for state workers. Eh? Come again? So: the voter who fended off one aspect of union rule in a single state also voted for another four years of massive spending, taxation, cronyism and welfare statism on a nationwide scale… and this is supposed to be proof of conservatism on the mend?

    I want what he’s smoking.

  92. If we ever reinstate the draft, the minimum age needs to be raised to 27.

  93. “Not only is the broad culture rotten, but even our so-called conservative A-list talking heads huff nothing but swamp gas. You read smarter stuff at AOS or Protein Wisdom.”

    Amen!

    And your comments on Krauthammer, Will and Morris are right on. Sometimes they say things and I have to double check their party affiliation. So bad.

  94. Conscription is usually proof that you haven’t sufficiently made the case that the war is worth fighting.

  95. That picture of Geraghty at the Pj media site shown at the interview….yikes, PJ O’Rourke is right, (some) men in shorts…embarrassing. That picture is very high douche factor.

  96. Conscription is usually proof that you haven’t sufficiently made the case that the war is worth fighting.

    WWII was a waste.

  97. Critical thinking is a lost art. We have lost the Culture War. Dan Quayle was right about Murphy Brown and Big Bird, Binders, and Birth Control were a direct result. I’m still in the LIB category. I’m old and I don’t have kids.

  98. As for Geraghty soothing us that we only lost by 400K votes, I shamelessly steal from AOS links:

    http://bit.ly/QGNNiz

  99. Dan Quayle was right about Murphy Brown

    It says something that even Dan Quayle could see the nature of the problem, and he was widely dismissed.

  100. Oh, might I add, since I love trashing tools like Geraghty, that on his Three Martini Lunch podcast the very night before the second debate he confidently predicted Candy Crowley would be just fine as a moderator, and conservatives shouldn’t succumb to so many vapors about “media bias.”

    Dropping that poopcast from my list. Waste of time.

  101. WWII was a waste.

    I said “usually”.

  102. Alternately, it could be viewed as parents allowing their kids to be on their plan until they are 26.

  103. Bravo again, George.

    Anyone is is of the “oh, don’t worry those dem moderators are fine,” is fricken delusional.

  104. Sorry, the only author at NRO worth consistently reading is Nordlinger.

  105. If my kid is a retarded f*ckup at 23, can I drop him?

  106. So, Iran can now fly over Iraq, to resupply Syria:

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/09/19/us-syria-crisis-iran-iraq-idUSBRE88I17B20120919

    We did what for who?

  107. Bring all the troops home. The Middle East wants to burn. Let it.

  108. David Kahane aka Michael Walsh is worth reading at NRO.

  109. Also, conscription is not an indicator for the worthiness of ANY war. To pursue that line of reasoning is futile.

    It took a lot of effort to get to an all volunteer force. The existence of conscription had no effect on the execution of wars.

  110. Sure as hell get out of A-stan. Utter waste of lives.

  111. Where is the media coverage of Morsi’s power grab? How many missiles have been fired on Israel from Gaza since the cease fire? How many Americans are still without power from Sandy? Jamie Foxx said What?

  112. So what you’re saying, oso, is you’re racist?

  113. Back when I was in college and declared myself independent at 19 (taxwise), I was also no longer on my parents insurance (not that I ever went to the Dr., growing up). So if I needed to go to the Dr. (clinic) or dentist, guess what? I had a few dollars saved up for such a purpose. I paid cash and hoped Mr. Beasn (then boyfriend) would share his Sunday dinner with me.

  114. Judging by the amount of hours Car in works now, how did that restaurant exist before she was there?

  115. Beasn, how could you be so cold-hearted? Don’t you know virtually no one can save up money to see a doctor? No one can be independent at 19, much less 26. You hatey-hater.

  116. Thank you, Mark Steyn! He finally said what needed to be said, and on Rush’s show: This is not a center-right country. Face reality. The default setting is liberal.

  117. It’s ok, George, her parents are Democrats, so they are exempt.

  118. It’s a center-right people with a far-left media organ.

  119. It’s hard to believe in a center-right people when they voted for four more years of failure. Some counties may be center-right, but the population centers are center-left.

  120. Huh huhuhuhuh….. Leon said ‘organ….’

  121. *De-Lurking device off*

    Testing… won, too, fwee….

  122. Most of the counties are center-right, but you are correct. The ones with the most people are center-left.

    The divide is widening, too.

  123. As Fingers Malloy noted with reference to the D convention, the Democrats won… “and they booed God!”

  124. “Sure as hell get out of A-stan. Utter waste of lives.”

    Yes, history tells us we can not do well there, also topography and tribalism and of course the 12th century mentality do not work in our favor.

  125. Greetings, grindstone nosers.

  126. I try to keep my schnoz a few inches away from the grindstone these days. The reward for touching one to the other isn’t sufficient incentive anymore.

  127. Some counties may be center-right, but the population centers are center-left.

    I would imagine that has always been true; the moochers don’t have it as good in places where people actually know you and hold you accountable.

    Has anyone ever looked at a possible correlation between population density and voter preference? I would imagine that might be quite an interesting little statistic.

  128. We could do ‘well’ in Afghanistan, if ‘we’ had the guts to do what needed to be done.

    Same with the rest of the ME. Sheet. Of. Glass.

  129. Hey, TX Marko…..Kiss our ass!!! And welcome.

  130. Um, the higher the density the more left leaning. It’s a pretty strong correlation.

  131. Hotspur, please give TXMarko the traditional Hostage welcome.

  132. Beasn 2016.

  133. Your hatey words make Hugh Hewitt cry, beasn.

    I recall some caller suggesting to Hewitt that unless the Israelis “go Roman” nothing will change for them, and Hugh promptly scolded the hatey-hate caller. For all the hate. Haters.

  134. Hotspur, please give TXMarko the traditional Hostage welcome.

    TXMarko, put on a waterproof sheet and noseplugs until it’s over.

  135. Um, the higher the density the more left leaning. It’s a pretty strong correlation.

    And in an interesting side-fact, the larger the density, the more likely it will be attacked by terrorists..

    So there is that.

  136. Has anyone ever looked at a possible correlation between population density and voter preference?

    The correlation is different now than it once was. Cities used to be R strongholds, because the “urban” North was the heart of the Republican party during the Civil War. San Francisco was a Republican city as recently as 50 years ago.

  137. Jeebus. Just drop a bomb on the Haj or whatever, but make sure it’s one of those Iranian jobbers. You know, the Kasey Kammem or whatever they call ‘em.

    Then send a letter to Iran from Saudi Arabia that says, ‘all Persians are gay. It’s your history.’

    Then sit back and watch the ME go to war.

    This is like the seventh time I’ve proposed this idea and I’m an idiot. Do we have not sneaky people at the CIA? Or at least a spy good enough to use a fake email address to get away with getting his dick sucked? The incompetence is stunning.

  138. No one can be independent at 19, much less 26. You hatey-hater.

    My parents are democrats. Once we hit 18, we had a choice* – go to college, or get a job and start paying rent. Preferably something on the government teat. So, I put myself through school and knew if I got sick, ‘I’, had to take care of me. They wouldn’t. So I had a ‘kitty’ of cash I wouldn’t touch, even to eat, because I knew I was going to need some dental work. Which was amazingly cheap, when you paid cash, as a student. And we’re talking an incredibly poor student, as in dirt poor. Some weeks, I didn’t have but a dollar to my name. If that.

    *Same thing I told my kids, except the teat thing.

  139. I think, MJ, for a war all you would need to do is send the letter.

  140. “So there is that.”

    HAHAHA…I like Wiser’s upside.

  141. I took care of myself after graduation out of pride.

    (Well, actually, three months after graduation when my first paycheck kicked in and then within 3 months after that I moved to Hawaii.)

    I know my parents would have helped if I needed it, but I never wanted to ask for anything.

  142. Wiser’s upside is why I don’t go to concerts or sporting events.

  143. It’s startlingly hard for many to understand that free shit is very expensive.

  144. Mj, I liked (really liked) your idea of sending letters to all the Palestinians saying their neighbors were spies. I liked the paranoid, chaos theory.

  145. It’s startlingly hard for many to understand that free shit is very expensive.

    “It wouldn’t be so expensive if the Republicans didn’t block what Obama is trying to do in the first place.” – typical ignorant greedy Democrat leech

  146. It’s all good, ya’ll…. I stick my nose in here from time to time… no need to put on the lingerie every time I show up…..

  147. I’m always in lingerie, TXM.

  148. I’m gonna have to quit going to my usual web haunts for a while – I’m still demoralized from the election, and their posts aren’t making things any better.

    I hope Harry Reid dies a painful, lingering death – complete with bedsores, ugly attendants, rectal exams/enemas/suppositories, and full cognizance of everything that is happening to him up to the moment of his demise.

  149. … and that is why I keep coming back, George.

    Well, that and Cyn. And Connie. And Car in….

  150. Reading this thread, I think I may have figured out when I became a racist, woman hating, asshole conservative.

    I borrowed money for a car and my parents asked me to pay the money back in installments, but they weren’t ever going to bother me about it. It was up to me to make the payment. I paid for a while, but then decided it didn’t matter.

    A few years later, like 7, I paid back the full amount with a bit of interest, mostly because I felt like a loser for letting them down.

    I actually felt good about it—which is why I’ll forever be the sucker in life.

  151. I hope Harry Reid dies a painful, lingering death – complete with bedsores, ugly attendants, rectal exams/enemas/suppositories, and full cognizance of everything that is happening to him up to the moment of his demise.

    Is it too much to ask that he die of dehydration, like many in the UK are?

  152. rectal exams/enemas/suppositories,

    I think he would enjoy that part.

  153. Didn’t you ask to stay on your parents’ auto insurance policy until you turned 27? No?

    You’re a H8R.

  154. I don’t think most people understand the concept or “my word” anymore. Or shaking hands on a deal.

    As in, “I give you my word on it that I will pay you back (promptly).”

    Hence, the lawyer bloom.

  155. rectal exams/enemas/suppositories

    I think those are on the menu in the Senate Dining Room.

  156. Hence, the lawyer bloom.

    chicken or the egg discussion.

    Once people started they could use the law to get out from beneath their debts, the abuse was inevitable.

  157. My husband and I are suckers too, MJ. We’ve been burned so many times, we should have grafts all over our bodies.

  158. Don’t worry, mare. We’ll have our hate to keep us warm at night.

  159. Imagine for a moment the Entitled Class (Reid, Pelosi, Kerry, etc) being subjected to the ultimate irony of dying of dehydration in a hospital ward, actively IGNORED by uncaring, brutish workers.

    Ignored. Dear God, the Irony…..

  160. I’m building a flying jet pack fueled with a bipropellant combination of unsymmetrical dimethyl hydrazine and liquified hate.

  161. I sleep with one leg out of the covers because my hate keeps me too warm.

  162. I kissed my niece on the head and my hatey hate burned her so bad she looked like Gorbachev afterward.

  163. I don’t think most people understand the concept or “my word” anymore.

    “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”

  164. TXM…I caught your irony….the problem? They don’t have to operate under Obamacare, our precious elected officials have their own plan.

  165. I was hoping to precipitate my hate into dry powder and use it to reload .45ACP.

  166. My hate overcooked my MF’ing turkey this Thanksgiving.

  170. Lance Armstrong won multiple Tours de France by intravenously juicing hate.

  171. My cat is indifferent to my hate.

  172. All this H8 in one place makes my leg tingle. Also makes me hungry for H8CHKN.

  173. It’s surprising they never caught him. I know there’s no blood test for hate, but he was and is a white male from Texas. Should go without saying.

  174. I plan on weaponizing my hate and becoming a super-villian who will hold the entire world hostage unless they pay me..

    du du duuunnnn…..

    1 meeelion dollars…..

  175. Romney’s ORCA software was an utter failure because he refused to write the code in hate.

  176. Don’t distract my bunk-fantasy with Facts, people !!

    You may force me to join your Hate talk, which I have plenty of since, oh, 2 weeks or so ago….

  177. That’s it, that’s how I’ll become famous. I’ll write a H8 interpreted scripting language. Python, Ruby, and Perl don’t stand a chance against the power of H8.

  178. Old Yeller wouldn’t have died from a gunshot if he were filled with enough hate.

  179. Love may make the world go ’round, but hate prevents us from flying off into space.

    Hate or gravity, I forget which one.

  180. I can’t wait for H8++.

  181. H8++ is for ignorant heretic basement dwellers.

    Pure H8 is all you need.

  182. H8 Service Pack II ?
    H8 Special Edition ?
    The possibilities…….

  183. Soylent Green is seasoned with hate crystals to cover that “people-ish” after-taste

  184. Physicists believe the particle that determines the masses for all other elementary particles is called the Hate Boson. They are searching for it with the LHC (Large Hate Collider).

  185. Heh. Steve in hb gave Ace the Orgasms, wargasms dealio. We have H8gasms.

  186. H8 is the perfect blog name

  187. I’d like to take this opportunity to remind all you haters that Animosity International apparel and accoutrements are still available in wiser’s store.

    I drink pure hate from my mug every single day.

  188. H8 is the perfect blog name.

    It really is. It would also make a nice t-shirt.

  189. Hate is not a family value, but it is a renewable resource.

  190. I like it, Sean. It’s like a perpetual motion machine.

  191. I put off so much hate I sunburn Mrs MJ when we spoon.

  192. H8 is the perfect blog name

    I volunteer to be in charge of the daily Two Million Minute Hate.

  193. Unlike wind and solar, hate is unaffected by weather. It surges, however, every four years.

  194. Meggie Mac is already protesting the new blog:

    (Don’t worry, it’s just a hotlink to HuffinPuff, not an actual link)

  195. We’d have a rotating set of NO H8 images as a sidebar widget.

  196. The H8: Making Rape And Pillage Play Second Fiddle Since H2

  197. When I’m Hatetator of the HUSA, anyone that puts duct tape over their mouths to make a statement will be executed.

    Not for expressing their opinion, but for being totally predictable and uncreative.

  198. I like hate so much I tattooed it on the knuckles of both hands.

  199. It would also make a nice t-shirt.

    However, H8 and SCOAMF on the same shirt will probably result in a Secret Service interview. Or an audit.

    He’s trolling his own blog.

  266. I love living in the Internet Age – my girls just send me their Amazon Wish Lists, and I can get them what they really want and have it delivered right to my door.

    And with the comments section, I can find really useful information – like if the manufacturer of a particular product doesn’t consider Amazon an “Approved Dealer”, thus voiding the warranty.

    Which allows me to go to the manufacturer’s website and get it directly from them – with the Cyber Weekend discount AND free shipping.

  270. I’m still at work too, AD.

  271. This is my penance for my 2 hour lunch break after getting in at 830.

  272. I am beyond incensed.

    My BIL, who has been staying with us three or four days a week because he said he would rather stay with family rather than alone at the barracks (while being evaluated for disability) just told Hubby he gets 100% from the VA.

    Because the VA figured WE KEPT HIM HERE BECAUSE HE CAN’T DO ANYTHING FOR HIMSELF.

    They also figured he needs a bigger stipend to be chauffeured to his appointments, a service I provide FOR FUCKING FREE, because he never, NOT ONCE, offered to pay us for helping him. Nor for the booze or the food he gets while in my house.

    Oh, and did I mention he owes us over $2,200? And that he gets a bigger paycheck than Hubby? And that he and his witch wife have no kids?

    And that they are fucking going on a fucking cruise this December???

  273. Someone just wore out their welcome.

  274. The VA has lots of free stuff. My mom told me. She won’t marry her boyfriend because she’ll lose her free stuff from the VA. *pushes wine to Aggie*

  275. I am seriously thinking of posting a comment at his FB, for a bill.

  276. I just love people who abuse their relatives.

    That really sucks, aggie.

  277. **loans Aggie my best pair of stompyboots for teh ass-kicking**

  278. What does your hubby say and is the fall out worth it?

  279. J’Ames, it’s one thing to abuse us like that. I can just be done with the fuckwad and never deal with the rat ass sucking bastard again.

    But to abuse the system, when so many other active duty military need more than he does???

    Fuck him. The wrath is a’coming.

  280. Y’all think I’m mad? You shoulda heard Hubby on the phone.

    He is going to place a call. A very important call. And he doesn’t care if his name is on the paperwork.

  281. I had a Monday, too. Received a forwarded message, and in the email chain, the person who forwarded me the message said I was unreliable. :(

  282. Did your hubby throw him out of a moving vehicle? I’m pretty sure it was justified.

  283. Last time I went to the VA for help, they wouldn’t see me because I made too much money the year before.

  284. Is there a disability adjustment for a machete wound? And can they trace it to you?

  285. *pours a glass for Roamy*

  286. Thank you, Osita.

  287. Osita, his wife cut me off completely. She unfriended me and blocked me on FB because she was tired of me telling everyone on the fucking planet that MY HUSBAND’S A DOCTOR!!111ELEVENTY!!! Which I never say on FB, because Hubby doesn’t like it. But apparently she didn’t like me suggesting that if ever BIL goes to the ICU again, perhaps she should call one of us and we would take care of calling the whole family. In her opinion, me calling every day to update Hubby while he was in Egypt was just toooooo much.

    So, as far as I’m concerned, cutting him out of my family is just fine. No more needing to worry about him.

  288. the person who forwarded me the message said I was unreliable.

    The fuck????

  289. Get your $2200 first.

  290. As long as you and hubby are on the same page about his family, it works. Otherwise, you can come here and drink wine with us.

  291. I thought roamy worked with smart people.

  292. Get your $2200 first.

    No, the bill has gone up. I am charging him for everything, and so far it’s about $4K :D

  293. Osita, his entire family is on page with me. We were the last link to BIL from his family. Sadly, his wife managed to cut everyone off one by one.

  294. I don’t know what I would do if one of my relatives did that to me. I’d be in jail, or locked up at home because my wife would not want me to do anything stupid.

  295. I just purchased a Harder & Steenbeck Evolution Solo airbrush.

    Just thought you should know.

  296. I dunno. Just being rid of them might be worth writing off $4k.

  297. Not about the 4k. It is about sangre and why we let family mess us up so much.

  298. I dunno if Andy remembers the OH-13/Bell 47 we saw at PS Air museum, but I just saw it go overhead. Way the heck up there, maybe 2000ft, heading somewhere east of here.

  317. Here’s the kind of snark that got me hooked on AoSHQ many moons ago and causes me to still back occasionally. Even though the comments are a nine wire clusterfuck.

    Joe Klein offers a series of propositions, each more risible than the last, culminating with the claim that Chris Stevens didn’t want any more security in Benghazi at all, he wanted to be “with the people in the streets.”

    Whether he wanted the people to invite themselves over from the streets inside the compound, and then to the safehouse, bringing house-warming presents of mortars and sodomy is unknown.

    That’s a thing of beauty.

  334. It’s official – DD#3’s kitteh is a stoner.

    He hopped up on the couch just now, and wouldn’t leave her alone until she opened up the baggie with the catnip in it. He then proceeded to dip his paw in, scoop out a huge amount (which promptly went everywhere), and then roll around in it.

    We’re still laughing…..

  335. Heh. DG always looks a little bug eyed whenever MCPO is holding her. Can’t say I blame her.

  336. That baby cracks me up every time I see a pic. Adorable. Her little facial expressions are great.

    In other news, MCPO stopped shaving his pate!

    I try to be polite and use a euphemism, and look at what you do.

    That’s just wrong of you, that’s what that is.

  356. I second Herself, too :)

  357. Vargas didn’t slobber on the canvas.

    Y’all can sure ruin an avatard.

  358. Wow. The Eagles really suck. They look worse than Obama at a debate.

  359. Just read that, b-rad. Thanks. I don’t think I’d ever heard of that particular aircraft before today.

  360. Skyfall. B- or C+.

  361. >> Y’all can sure ruin an avatard.

    We can ruin any goddamn thing.

  362. Who the hell uses green for a football team? Are they some kinda faggots?

    Oh, right.

  363. B-

  364. The Eagles have a play called The Flying Penis.

  365. We can ruin any goddamn thing.

    *enhances H2 resume-ay*

  366. Shit I’m still at work.

  367. >> Skyfall. B- or C+.

    C. And a “gentleman’s C” at that.

  368. Wow. The Eagles really suck. They look worse than Obama at a debate.

    So I guess that means they’ll end up winning by two or three points, huh?

  369. Sean, the Army also used to fly the Beaver. I always wanted to be a Beaver pilot.

    “What do you do for a living?”

    “I manhandle a Beaver all day long!”

  370. In Russia, beaver manhandles you.

  371. I was the third kid. My “baby book” was a leaflet:

    http://tinyurl.com/dxwvfgz

  372. To your knowledge, did a Flying Penis and a Beaver ever collide?

  373. I fed the third kid dirt. And bugs.

  374. In Thailand, you handle man-beaver.

  375. >> The Eagles have a play called The Flying Penis.

    So do I

  376. I saw The Flying Penis open for Jane’s Addiction in ’88.

  377. C. And a “gentleman’s C” at that.
    ————————
    Agreed. Mrs MJ gave it a B. She’s into Daniel Craig.

  378. Man-Beaver and The Flying Penis are Canada’s most popular superhero team.

  379. The last Bond sucked so bad, this one felt like a B. All the movies that I have seen this year, have been Bs.

  380. Man-Beaver and The Flying Penis are Canada’s most popular superhero team.

    Really? I thought they were opening acts for Nickleback at the Palace in 1997.

  381. Crap. I missed Andy’s poat. Once in a while I ought to read more than one comment.

  382. Eh, Skyfall wasn’t great, but it did pay homage to a lot of stuff from the past. I’ll give it a solid B.

  383. Skyfall wasn’t Prometheus. I’ll give it that.

    The best part was the ending, which is where all the homage-ing came in.

  384. Poor Pupster

  385. Skyballs.

  386. Skyballs.

    That’s what Zeus calls his nut sack.

  387. I don’t believe in movie theaters.

  388. I quit movies about 20 years ago, and then Laura talked me into giving it another chance.

    We saw The Waterboy.

    I have not been back since.

  389. Bobby Boucher!!!!

  390. Scott, that’s like laying off liquor for years and then someone offers you a glass of Malibu.

  391. Well, shit.

    I just found out from the Mrs. that one of our friends here (and a fellow GOP Town Committee member) was diagnosed with breast cancer.

  392. Mmmm…Malibu and Sprite and Curacao.

  393. Andy, Prayers!!!! Great odds in USA if caught early!

  394. Who the fuck let Casey Anthony back in the news?

  395. I just applied for a job in North Dakota
    (only about the 15th one I am qualified for they see I am in Florida and deep 6 it)

  396. Prayers for Andrew’s friend.

  397. >> Who the fuck let Casey Anthony back in the news?

    Dumbass cops who never heard of that newfangled Firefox browser.

  398. Thanks, all.

  399. I am happy about it RFH. I want her to be famous.

    I want people to recognize her everywhere she goes.

  400. Meh. I still blame overreaching DAs. The whole Search thing was common knowledge. Her mom said it was her. Her parents decided to protect live kid over dead grandkid.

  401. She’ll beat it Andy.

  402. Beat what?

  403. Oh, sorry, I thought you were talking about Casey Anthony.

    Got it.

  404. Sure,
    Scott & Laura got me excited about the price of pork-loin. I had to go to Safeway today, so I looked for them.
    Wow!
    Great Special on “Whole Pork-Loins”, $4.99/lb!
    Let me just say; Fuck you, Safeway!”

    On the other paw,
    Went outside for a smoke&coke. It’s CAVU and many stars. I’m betting on mid 20s tonight…

  405. Was it found early?

  406. Wow, Crispy! That’s insane. We don’t pay that even when it is not on sale.
    Although, we have some other stores nearby that for some reason get away with ridiculously high prices for the same stuff.

    I don’t know how far away the next store is from you, though.

  407. I believe so. The Mrs. was relaying the info as she was getting on a plane and I didn’t get all the details.

  408. I bought 3 pork loins a few weeks ago for $2/# I will buy any protean for under $2

    How long do you smoke a loin Scott?

  409. protein

    I suck at spelling

  410. Unconfirmed rumor: Bill Clinton has asked Paula Broadwell to write his biography.

  411. Dan has been buying pork loin for a few weeks now. I don’t know what he’s paying. Posole season.

  412. Time for the TiFWs to call it a night –
    Sweet dreams, all! ♥♥♥

  413. VMax, use the address of someone closer to ND, say Leon or Jay.
    It is worth a shot.

  414. Or Brewfan.

  415. I haven’t cooked one yet. We have 3 in the freezer.

  416. Looks yummy, Scott! I love piñon!

  417. Good Idea Tushar

  418. Cheerleaders for the guys, mostly nekkid men for the ‘ettes.

  419. Laura,
    There’s a “family owned independent butcher-shop a few miles north. Next time I’m out that way, I’ll check with them. They have really “nice” stuff in there but, since I got busted-up and don’t work, I don’t shop for meat much.
    I usually buy the “Timed-Out” stuff in the clearance-bin and immediately freeze it.
    I’m a cheap old fart…

  420. XB, the RangerUp guys had that video. Fueled my Call Me, Maybe obsession.

  421. We bought 40 lbs of pork last weekend for about $45.

  422. No, it was 30 lbs. for $30, hon.
    We had to buy a certain $ amount of other stuff to get the deal, but we needed other stuff anyway.

  423. Mmmm…pork. Playing phone tag with my mom about chicharrones. Wonders if Pozole is anything like posole.

  424. Scott,
    Pack it in dry-ice and send it to me!

  425. Oso, I dunno who the heck those guys were, but I know fer sure some at least weren’t US troops. Kiwi or Aussie SAS if I had to guess.

  426. Still…I cleavered out three 3-lb. roasts, twenty chops, four butterflied chops for stuffing, a pile of cubes for stew, and also made five pounds of homemade linguica. Pretty good haul.

    We’re running low on beef and chickety, now.

    *thumbs through store circulars*

  427. The 10 lb shoulder I smoked was pork.

    That was $1.39 or $1.49 per lb.

  428. XB, eye candy!!!! I liked their version better than the cheerleaders!

  429. I stand corrected.

  430. We filled the freezer with turkey and chicken. Soup meister is busy being soupy.

  431. Yeah, I have a pot of bones chilling out on the porch.
    Will finish the soup tomorrow night.
    Nice thing about this time of year, the whole porch is a refrigerator.

  432. Oso, I like both versions (and the US Swim team’s) version better than Carly’s video.

  433. Skyfall = A-/B+

  434. A little eyecandy for Oso and maybe Cyn. Or Car in if she ever shows up.

  435. Speaking of Cyn, remember honey, every woman is just two drinks away from a lesbian experience. Drink up!

    How fuckin’ old it that picture? He looks the baby!

  437. The Benedict Cumberbatch pic? Not more than about 2 years old.

  443. And my number is
    Beechwood 4-5789
    You can call me up and

  444. Morning.

  445. No, it was 30 lbs. for $30, hon.
    ————————–
    I hate it when Mom and Dad fight!

  446. I’m so old I remember when handing over Gaza to terrorists was supposed to appease them.

  447. I remember that. I remember telling a liberal friend after it obviously hadn’t placated them that anything the Israelis did after that was fine by me, and ought to be fine by her. She hadn’t known that Gaza had been handed over, typically.

    She had a really nice ass though.

  448. I missed it, why is Mick Jagger up there? Did he die?

  449. Good morning, cool kids.

  450. Mrs. Caruthers is going to Ohio today for a work seminar. I have to feed the outside animals tonight and tomorrow morning.

    Boooooooo!

  451. Maybe you could just give them double in the morning and save yourself a step tonight.

    *sweeps hands together-Fin Solutions*

  452. Wait… step back… reverse that. Still Time Saved!!1!

  453. Looks like that Mick Jagger header pic came from The Telegraph article that the RS should pack it in.

  454. How is Tiger Chick this AM?

  455. wakey wakey

  456. Doing good, still waking up. But time to roll soon: five more days of me watching a court trial. I’ll have Friday off at least to work on the rest of my stuff though. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

    And how is Vman this morning?

    *pours you a cup of coffee, putting empty carafe back on the burner for the next person*

  457. There are snowflakes starting to fall.
    And the pollen count is very, very low.
    YAYYY

  458. *pours you a cup of coffee, putting empty carafe back on the burner for the next person*

    sonofa …

  459. I am well Cyn, Thanks

    I started another pot for ya Car in.

  460. THANK YOU vman.

    *gives Cyn the stinkeye.

  461. xbrad, I’m giving you 10,000 points for this, to be used for Tissues, Dramamine, a new bicycle pump and some socks. WELL DONE!

    Our troops are studs!!! GO USA, GO USA!

  462. Good morning, good people!

  463. Could I have a slice of pie with that stinkeye? Coo Whip on the side please. Thanks, Honey.

    That just made my morning (besides the military studs).

    My cat is really keeping the mole population down in our backyard.

  465. I have to go to Michigan next week.

    *checks the weather*

    I don’t think it’s gonna be 84

  466. So. True stories from reality. A girl I work with (very nice)told me last night that she doesn’t deposit her tips into a bank because then she would have more trouble applying for a bridge card – what we call the foodstamp thing here in Michigan. She is young. Lives with her boyfriend. Healthy. Has a job. Has a car, etc. No kids. She’s maybe 23 or so.

  467. I have to go to Michigan next week.

  468. I have to go to Michigan next week.

    *checks the weather*

    WHAT????!!!!

    Where? When?

    *considers answering the phone

  469. It’s a quick turn I’m afraid, Muskegon. I hear the east side of the lake is where they get ten feet of snow every day, right?

  470. was just doing a little light financial reading. this is from Deepak Lal at Business Standard:
    ” there is a bubble in Treasuries — which, when it bursts, will lead to the euthanasia of bondholders, much as happened in the decades after the Second World War. Perhaps the undisclosed intention is to mitigate the US’ large and growing debt burden. ”

    it’s the term “euthanasia of bondholders” which i find interesting.

  471. I’d bring a full snowsuit.

    You do know how to make snow-angels, right?

  472. Muskegon?

    I hear it is lovely this time of year.

  473. Yeah, I know. We fly into Canada somewhere, Grand Rapids I think. Then we have to dog sled our way from there.

  474. Muskegon is part of the Lake Effect Nightmare Corridor, yes, but the lower 2/3 of the mitten is mostly snow-free still.

  475. “She is young. Lives with her boyfriend. Healthy. Has a job. Has a car, etc. No kids. She’s maybe 23 or so.”

    You have to work on that “lack of virtue” early, she’s already working the system. Probably been working it for awhile.

  476. Grand Rapids has the Gerald R. Ford airport. Is that where you’re landing?

  477. Also, we’re at nearly 500 comments. It’s time to admit that it’s Tuesday.

  478. yessir

  479. A family of four can have a net income of $2000 per month and receive up to $700 per month in food stamps.

    That’s kind of a fuckload of money, relatively speaking.

    Eating is a right. I’d like 33% of my income in food stamps, please.

  480. Work is for suckers.

  481. New poat, just dying to be updated/pushed down.

  482. I think she’d like to free up some of her cash for fun.

    Fun is a right.

    it sucks having to spend your hard-earned money on necessities. It should go toward fun stuff.
