How ’bout some light political banter today?

  1. Obama or anal fistula? Which would you rather endure?

  2. So, when does a recession officially become a depression? What economic indicators are required to be a what levels? Who produces the data?

  3. Mmmm … new poat smell. Pretty interesting day for a Monday, and it’s early yet:

    Dead:
    Robert Byrd (D-KKK)
    Public Company Accounting Oversight Board

    Alive:
    2nd Amendment (all ur statez are belong to me!)

  4. I suppose I should be happy that so many of you are at work, paying taxes, so that I can afford this month’s ration of dog food and ObamaCare. However, the silence here is creeping me out.

  5. 2nd Amendment (all ur statez are belong to me!)

    It should not have been a 5-4 decision. It should have been a 9-0 decision. 5-4 means that the liberty-hating commies will try again.

  6. Looks like you and me here, Chief. My condolences.

    The dividing line between “recession” and “depression” is relatively subjective. A depression is essentially a particularly long (say 2 years) and deep (e.g., well north of a 10% drop in GDP) recession, which this one certainly is starting to feel like.

  7. BiW – Those 4 will ALWAYS vote to curtail individual liberty and ALWAYS vote to expand the power of the state. They are not Americans in any understanding that I possess.

  8. Andy – Thanks.

  9. A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose your job.

  10. And BiW … yay, sausagefest!

    Where all da white wimmenz at?

    Yes, BiW, it should be 9-0. But I’ll take 5-4.

  11. And recovery is when Obama loses his!

    /Zombie Reagan

  12. Yes, BiW, it should be 9-0. But I’ll take 5-4.

    Celebrate, but not too much. They are already thinking ahead to the next battle.

    Arizona pizza farts!!!!

  15. Morning all!

    What a great time last night!

    I just love meeting Hostages :-)

  16. Roamy! *waves*

    Check you email!

  17. Arizona pizza farts!!!!

    HAHAHA! No Way! You’re so funny!

    Okay, seriously; can you really smell them from there, because I’m killing myself this morning.

  18. Hmmmm … I thought that sulfur smell was the gates of hell opening for the esteemed late senator from W. Va.

  19. I wish.

    I mean, yes Andy–that’s it!

  20. Turn your volume down. And enjoy.

  21. I’m doing my MCPO imitation today. Getting all my chores done early.

    BUT, I’ve discovered a flaw in this strategy. The chores. Never. End.

    When I start later in the day, I just run out of time.

    I’ve primed stuff for the chicken coop (door ,windows,stairs, etc), dug a trench for the chicken wire, done laundry, cleaned the kitchen, weeded the garden a bit.

    Ugh. It never ends.

  22. So, when does a recession officially become a depression? What economic indicators are required to be a what levels? Who produces the data?

    A depression is generally considered a 10% contraction in the economy. And while the government’s numbers don’t show that, if you remove the government’s deficit spending, you WOULD see a 10% contraction. And since that money isn’t real economic activity, we really are in a depression.

  23. Robert Byrd, BIH

  24. Okay, seriously; can you really smell them from there, because I’m killing myself this morning.

    I didn’t light all these scented candles cause I’m in touch with my girly side (if I was, she’d probably slap me!). Seriously, you folks need to cut back on the broccoli, or invest in Beano.

  25. Car in, how about a nice indoor chore, like cleaning my kitchen?

  26. I just looked at my phone this mornign–Zbrad! Sorry I missed your call last night. Were you drunk dialing me and Roamy?

  27. Cyn, I sober called you and Roamy, in the hopes that you would both be, if not drunk, tipsy enough to carry out my suggestion.

  28. Was that the one about the baby oil and feather boas, or latex face masks and chocolate syrup?

  29. Cyn – Glad you guys had a good time, but REAL LY! I mean, have you checked to see if the paint is peeling off the walls? PHEW!!!!nty

  30. So, when does a recession officially become a depression? What economic indicators are required to be a what levels? Who produces the data?

    A DEPRESSION IS WHEN 80% OF YOUR POPULACE HAS BEEN INCINERATED AND THE REMAINDER, HAVING LOST HOPE, YEARN FOR THEIR OWN IMMINENT DOOM.

    THIS DATA IS PRODUCED BY TAGNASH AND IS THEREFORE UNASSAILABLE.

  31. Is it wrong of me to be glad that Sheets is dead? I figure any day a disgusting racist (a real one, not a RAAAAACIST like us) dies is a good day. Am I going to hell?

  32. Just the one about spanking, Cyn. But if that includes feather boas and baby oil, I’m cool with that.

  33. Peel – You will not go to hell for disliking a hypocrite and rejoicing that he can no longer corrupt our political process.

  34. Mrs. Peel, I’d just remind you that the wedding isn’t nearly as important as the marriage.

  35. damn, how can so few people drink so many beers?

    *resumes shoveling….

  36. Wiser – Hopefully, like a good Republican, you guys threw the empties in the BACK yard!

  37. Mrs. Peel,
    That’s why I put: Robert Byrd, Burn In Hell.

    I am happy he is dead, and am not ashamed to feel this way.

    Fucking racist socialist asshole.

  38. Douchenozzle!

    And if I could be so delicate …. fuck him!

  39. Hopefully, like a good Republican, you guys threw the empties in the BACK yard!

    OMG, they’re EVERYwhere!!!

  40. No Roamy. The only thing different about that fossil today compared to yesterday is that his heart no longer beats. I was glad when Swimmer bought the farm, and I’m glad Sheets is gone. That senile old bastard never did an honest day’s work.

  41. Did you puke on anyone’s shoes, Wiser?

    If not, PARTY HARD FAIL.

  42. Is it wrong of me to be glad that Sheets is dead?

    No. And I don’t only express that here.

  43. Just because:

  44. I just sent Mrs. Wiser a thank-you for hosting us and an apology for pooping on the deck.

  45. Jazz – the follow-up comment is gold! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

  46. Who is gonna make me lunch? Don’t make me eat the left-over spaghetti!!

  47. Xbrad, tell my mom that. I don’t get why she doesn’t realize that we are old and don’t want some huge event.

  48. Did you puke on anyone’s shoes, Wiser?

    Sir, I never puke.

  49. an apology for pooping on the deck.

    Was that you?

    *whew.

    I was so hoping I didn’t do that again.

  50. Sir, I never puke.

    CHALLENGE!!!!

  51. Gimme your mom’s number, and I’ll call her.

  52. Jazz – the follow-up comment is gold! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    There’s a reason you and I get along so famously! :D

  55. Moe Lane makes me laugh today with his observation on Dana Milbank’s latest column.

    Both true AND accurate! :D

  56. GREAT OBSERVATION from Don Surber and Republicans on the 2nd Amendment ruling:

    n her dissent against the finding that the city of Chicago’s ban on handguns is unconstitutional, Justice Sonia Sotomajor said: “I Can Find Nothing In The Second Amendment’s Text, History, Or Underlying Rationale That Could Warrant Characterizing It As ‘Fundamental’ Insofar As It Seeks To Protect The Keeping And Bearing Of Arms For Private Self-Defense Purposes.”

    A year ago, as senators were deciding whether to confirm her appoinment, Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy asked: “Is It Safe To Say That You Accept The Supreme Court’s Decision As Establishing That The Second Amendment Right Is An Individual Right? Is That Correct?”

    Then-Judge Sotomayor replied: “Yes, Sir.”

    Today she suffers a massive memory loss.

    MRS. PEEEEEELLLLLLL!!!!!

  58. Fisting?

    Spite for weaselly little pukes and pontificating arseholes.

  59. “I Can Find Nothing In The Second Amendment’s Text, History, Or Underlying Rationale That Could Warrant Characterizing It As ‘Fundamental’ Insofar As It Seeks To Protect The Keeping And Bearing Of Arms For Private Self-Defense Purposes.”

    You’d have to poke your fucking eyes out with a fork to be that blind.

  60. “Spite for weaselly little pukes and pontificating arseholes.”

    pft!

  61. Maywood, CA. – 96 Percent Hispanic Sanctuary City – Disbands is police department and fires all employees to avoid financial collapse.

    The [city is] 96.4 percent Hispanic with almost half the population illegal aliens:

    Maywood’s $10.1-million general fund budget has a deficit of at least $450,000, officials said. Beyond that, the city has been unable to obtain insurance because of a history of lawsuits, many involving its Police Department, which also patrols Cudahy. Operating without insurance would make even routine government services highly risky.

    “We’re limited on our choices and limited on what we can do,” Councilman Felipe Aguirre said. “We don’t want to file for bankruptcy. We don’t want to disappear as a city.”

    Aguirre said filing for bankruptcy was not an option for Maywood because its problems were related specifically to insurance coverage and not cash flow.

    But during a contentious City Council meeting that stretched late into Monday night, opponents of the plan accused council members of managing the city incompetently by failing to maintain the city’s insurance coverage.

    “You single-handedly destroyed the city,” Lizeth Sandoval, the city treasurer, told the City Council

    Stupid fuckers.

  62. I bring heat waves with me. Sorry.

    I’ve never understood the logic of not speaking ill of the dead. If the deceased was a disgusting racist, I think I should be able to call it like it is.

    Xbrad, I’m not sure how she would react to that…

    Not only is she blind, she’s a lying sack of putrescent puke.

    Poorly, if she has a lick of sense.

  66. Not only is she blind, she’s a lying sack of putrescent puke.

    Well, the canons of judicial conduct are only for the unwise, old, white judges, not for a wise latina woman who knows that the appellate courts make law.

    Duh!

  67. I won’t celebrate his death, but I’m not gonna lie and suddenly come up with nice things to say about him.

  68. Car in, how about a nice indoor chore, like cleaning my kitchen?

    You got some rubber gloves?

    And I aint doing the fridge.

    I’m stopping at starbucks. I’ll buy.

  71. You got some rubber gloves?

    I’ve got a slightly used rubber fist- is that close enough?

    And the fridge is actually in pretty good shape.

  72. Jazz,
    You ever listen to Built to Spill?

  73. And the fridge is actually in pretty good shape.

  80. Jazz, it’s been linked here already.

    Hell, it’s already up at Ace’s.

  81. My sil is visiting my mil this week. Did she call? Arrange a visit so her kids can see my kids? No. Because she only cares about HER inlaws (her mom and her inlaws all live in toledo.)

    My husband pointed out to his mom that his sister (and mostly her husband) focus all their energy on HIS family to the exclusion of our family. MIL didn’t really notice, since all visits involve her, she doesn’t seem to notice. Anyway, part of me doesn’t care and part of me gets really irritated at the half-assed ways they try to arrange a get-together.

    My bitch:

    They invited us (today) to go to Cedar Point with them tomorrow. We’ve done this twice before. This is how the “day together goes” :

    I drive three house to Cedar Pointe. They arrive a few hours later (since it’s only about a 40 min drive for them). We meet, say hello, then my sil and mil head off and I’m with my kids (alone) again. No problem, I mean, they’re my kids, but why are we meeting there?

    After a few hours, my mil and sil are “tired” and ready to go- so we meet to say goodby. Me and my kids stay as long as possible to get the most out of the day.’

    Anyway, I passed on this “get together.”

  82. Man, that was dull.

    But I feel strangely refreshed puking it out.

    I love Cedar Point.

    I’d just rather go w/o the pretense that it’s a family thing.

  83. My sil is staying at my mil’s all week, and my bil has dropped his kid off there too. By … oh, later today my sil is going to be on her last nerve.

    She’s a control freak, and my nephew is a handful.

    I feel kinda bad for the kid, because my sil can be a bitch. After about six hours with that kid, she’s going to start complaining to her mom about him.

  84. Well, the canons of judicial conduct are only for the unwise, old, white judges, not for a wise latina woman who knows that the appellate courts make law.

    You know, were the party distribution in Congress more equal, I could be sympathetic to an impeachment cry. Given the close proximity of Sotomayor’s confirmation testimony – on the VERY SAME SUBJECT as that of the just-decided case and that indicated a contrary belief – to the case decision itself, I could see a convincing perjury argument. If she thought her confirmation testimony might implicate an upcoming decision (which she ought to have, especially in light of a pending Heller clarification suit), she should have refrained from commenting. At a minimum, she violated the canons of judicial conduct, as you note.

    I’m an unrepentant idealogue, though.

  85. I haven’t read the decisions, but Thomas seems to have the right take on why the 14th covers the second.

    Please note that in the 1st Amendment, in re: religion, it says “Congress shall make no law” which would imply that the states may. But in the 2nd Amendment, it clearly says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed” which pretty clearly intends that NO ONE infringe it.

  86. car in,
    We have a similar situation with my sister, who doesn’t get along with my wife.
    Fuck em, its ok to pass on that get together.

    I am to the point that I will not leave my kids alone with my sister because I feel like they undermine my wife.

    On another note, I rode a 3500 foot vertical climb this weekend. The last 500 feet were so fucking hard, when you get above 8500 feet in elevation you really feel it when you strain. I did it in three hours, which is slow. But I figured out I can leave work at 5:00 and be home by 8:00 while it’s still relatively bright, so I plan on making that extra 500 feet from here on out.

  87. You’re welcome — http://www.vuvuzela-time.co.uk/thehostages.wordpress.com/

  88. Quick question for y’all. My sister wants to buy my Mom’s 2005 Honda CRV (low miles, pristine condition). Blue Book says $17,180 for a private party sale. Mom naturally wants to give her a discount, but doesn’t want to feel like a chump.

    What’s a fair price for a family sale like this?

  89. What’s the difference between Uniball repeatedly jamming a giant vuvuzela up his ass while licking a dog’s pecker and Sotomayor buying a gun?

  90. Geoff, a 10-20% family discount seems fair, and avoids any nasty “wealth transfer” issues from the IRS.

  91. What’s the difference between Uniball repeatedly jamming a giant vuvuzela up his ass while licking a dog’s pecker and Sotomayor buying a gun?

    One is called “Monday” and the other is a fairy tale.

  92. What’s the difference between Uniball repeatedly jamming a giant vuvuzela up his ass while licking a dog’s pecker and Sotomayor buying a gun?

    None. Neither would ever happen.

  93. Rosie, is there any particular act you want me to do to Cyn, Roamy, and Ember this week?

  94. Nobody in their right mind could possibly imagine Sotomayor buying a gun.

  95. And I’m voting Rosetta off the island. He’s a disruptive influence. He can come back in one hour.

  96. You know, were the party distribution in Congress more equal, I could be sympathetic to an impeachment cry. Given the close proximity of Sotomayor’s confirmation testimony – on the VERY SAME SUBJECT as that of the just-decided case and that indicated a contrary belief – to the case decision itself, I could see a convincing perjury argument.

At a minimum, she violated the canons of judicial conduct, as you note.

    I’m an unrepentant idealogue, though.

    Jazz, I’m not sure impeachment is a road I want to consider. Remember, we have a party that has already politicized the confirmation process, and by the threat of filibuster, has already violated the underlying concept of “advise and consent”, as described by Hamiliton in the Federalist Papers. I wouldn’t trust them to show the restraint to refrain from politically motivated attacks on other justices, especially in like of some of the criticisms leveled at Roberts after the Citizens Untied ruling by some Dems.

    I finished Levin’s Men In Black yesterday, and one of the last chapters addressed this issue. His suggestion was staggered 12 year terms, and justices could serve more than once, but there had to be a three year wait between terms.

    He also had an entire section of the appendix with copied of memos to Teddy Kennedy from staffers regarding the confirmation proceedures in 2004-2005 which were shameful and scandalous. On suggested talking point on Miguel Estrada: “Sure he is an intelligent lawyer, but it takes more than that to be a judge.”

    Judging from the criteria set forth in the memos, it apparently takes a willingness to support the Left’s agenda, by hook or crook, from the bench or before it.

  97. Rosie, is there any particular act you want me to do to Cyn, Roamy, and Ember this week?

    Take some good pictures and put them up on the meat page. You should take all the pictures so that you’re not in any of them.

    Take a lot of pictures when they’re shitfaced because those are the BEST!!

    Actually, once they’re liquored see if they will let you take a picture of them grabbing each other’s boobs. Hahahahahaha.

    That would kick ass.

  98. What’s the difference between Uniball repeatedly jamming a giant vuvuzela up his ass while licking a dog’s pecker and Sotomayor buying a gun?

    None. Neither the dog nor the gun would sit still for it.

  99. Thanks, xBrad. I relayed that advice to my Mom.

  100. Geoff, a 10-20% family discount seems fair, and avoids any nasty “wealth transfer” issues from the IRS.

    I agree. And what’s great is if you do a family transfer, you don’t have to pay a bunch of fees. At least in California.

    My brother traded his truck and minivan to us for PJD’s truck and when I went to the DMV, no mention of a trade was made, but we made out the pink slip deal like it was a gift from a family member.

    It was one nice truck for two crappy vehicles, but PJD’s truck could only fit 4 people and that won’t work for us. Now we have two vehicles that will carry all of us.

  101. Take some good pictures and put them up on the meat page. You should take all the pictures so that you’re not in any of them.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  102. I haven’t read the decisions, but Thomas seems to have the right take on why the 14th covers the second.

But in the 2nd Amendment, it clearly says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed” which pretty clearly intends that NO ONE infringe it.

    Brad, I will confess that I have never studied the idea in depth ( although I am engaged in a different 14th Amendment Argument at my place right now), but I confess that I have some trouble reconciling the idea that if states and the Federal government are co-equal soverigns, that the feds may dictate that the Amendments to the Consititution apply to actions by the states as well. Its an idea I may have to look into when I get through the stack of books on my nightstand.

  103. Actually, once they’re liquored see if they will let you take a picture of them grabbing each other’s boobs. Hahahahahaha.

    I called both of them last night and left a message asking them to send me pics of them spanking each other.

  104. WHEN MY INTERDIMENSIONAL TRANSPORT VEHICLE IS COMPLETED, YOU WILL ALL DIE IN UNUTTERABLE PAIN!!!

  105. Jazz, I’m not sure impeachment is a road I want to consider.

I wouldn’t trust them to show the restraint to refrain from politically motivated attacks on other justices, especially in like of some of the criticisms leveled at Roberts after the Citizens Untied ruling by some Dems.

    I understand your reticence, but the confirmation process was never supposed to be what it’s turned into, either, courtesy of Besotted Ted Kennedy and lefty distortion. I’m most assuredly am not jumping for joy at an impeachment prospect, but I’m not sure that ball politically motivated judicial attacks) is not already rolling. Given the lefty playbook, it seems only a matter of time before a tactic like this is pulled on a conservative judge. I haven’t read the opinions yet, but my superficial impression is that there is testimony to one effect and a temporally proximate opinion rendered to the contrary. It bears the visage of a peculiarly straightforward case.

  106. PJ, Geoff, et al, the state doesn’t care if your family gifts a vehicle to you. But a gift of a vehicle would fall under the federal wealth transfer laws. The current gift level is, IIRC, $12,000 per year. Anything above that in a given year would be taken from the lifetime exemption. That may not be an issue, depending on the giftors net worth, but it pays to keep it in mind.

  107. If the democrats insist on inflicting racist women judges on the Supreme Court, why do they have to be bull dyke manatees? I mean, eye bleach sales are already through the roof with the likes of Janet Napolitano and Helen Thomas.

  108. Anybody else watching the Kagan Hearing? I have FNC on and they cut in periodically.

    Just an observation here, but from the look on Kagan’s face, I think she ate some of the same pizza we ate last night and she’s smelling the after-effects.

  109. Brad, I thought it was $12,000 per spouse.

    heh heh heh. Tagnash is a teenage boy who can’t afford to keep his 1987 Dodge POS gassed up…

  112. BiW, I’m similarly concerned about the retroactive imposition of incorporation against the states. But my non-lawyerly plain reading of the Amendments tells me that some facets of the BoR were clearly intended to restrict the federal government, while others were recognitions of inalienable rights. If the Founders wanted states to have control over arms, the 2nd Amendment would say that “Congress shall make no law”

  113. YOU WILL ALL DIE IN UNUTTERABLE PAIN

    Well, what’s the point in THAT? I mean, if it is unutterable, then you can’t hear them screaming out in suffering. And let’s face it, if you’re going through all the trouble to wipe out this backwoods, off the wormhole track, not-yet-ready for space travel planet, you should at least get the joy of hearing it’s people scream out in pain and suffering. Otherwise, it’s llike slamming the cover back on the pot of boiling water after you throw the lobster in – hearing them scream is part of the package.

  114. PJ, Geoff, et al, the state doesn’t care if your family gifts a vehicle to you. But a gift of a vehicle would fall under the federal wealth transfer laws. The current gift level is, IIRC, $12,000 per year. Anything above that in a given year would be taken from the lifetime exemption. That may not be an issue, depending on the giftors net worth, but it pays to keep it in mind.

    The federal threhold is 13,000 a year to any one person. If it is a gift from you and a spouse, you may each give that much to any one person.

    Hotspur, there is no limitation on gifts between spouses.

  115. Brad, I thought it was $12,000 per spouse.

    Correct, but I’m so used to dealing with single parents, I often forget that.

  116. it’s llike slamming the cover back on the pot of boiling water after you throw the lobster in

    An analogy that only a Northeasterner would make.

  117. Hotspur, there is no limitation on gifts between spouses.

    That’s not what I meant. I meant what you said.

  118. “What’s the difference between Uniball repeatedly jamming a giant vuvuzela up his ass while licking a dog’s pecker and Sotomayor buying a gun?”

    The difference is I am making music with the vuvuzela every time I fart while Sotomayor dreams of her substitute penis in the form of a gun.

  119. BiW, I’m similarly concerned about the retroactive imposition of incorporation against the states. But my non-lawyerly plain reading of the Amendments tells me that some facets of the BoR were clearly intended to restrict the federal government, while others were recognitions of inalienable rights. If the Founders wanted states to have control over arms, the 2nd Amendment would say that “Congress shall make no law”

    Brad, I didn’t say that I was against it per se, I said I had trouble reconciling the concept. The reason that the BoR wasn’t included in the Constitution is because those at the convention didn’t believe it was necessary. Thankfully, anti-federalists like Patrick Henry prevailed on the perceived necessity of it.

  120. Why does Sotomayor have a “substitute penis” when the one she was born with is fully functional? At least that’s what BiW said.

  121. A few more chores and then off to see if I need to pay for the sophomore year in Columbia for the periodontist’s youngest.

  124. “I Can Find Nothing In The Second Amendment’s Text, History, Or Underlying Rationale That Could Warrant Characterizing It As ‘Fundamental’ Insofar As It Seeks To Protect The Keeping And Bearing Of Arms For Private Self-Defense Purposes.”

    “For Private Self-Defense Purposes”? Weasel words to provide “nuance” to the Wise Latina’s nuancy nuanciness.

    Liberals are strange beasts. They can find the right to unrestricted abortion up to and including the point at which the baby’s head crowns in the Constitution while reading the 2nd Amendment to allow them to restrict an actual Constitutionally-guaranteed right any way they see fit.

    I forget where I saw this, but a good working definition of a modern liberal is someone who want to ban things he hates while making the things he likes mandatory.

  125. An analogy that only a Northeasterner would make.

    Well, if you’re a decent shot, Bambi doesn’t make much noise after you pull the trigger….

    And nobody can hear borccoli screams.

  126. Well, given that ratification of the Constitution was understood to be contingent on the BoR, please forgive me if I tend to consider them as a package deal.

  127. broccoli, not borccoli.

  128. you should at least get the joy of hearing it’s people scream out in pain and suffering.

    YOU MAKE AN EXCELLENT POINT, FILTH.

    DO NOT EVER CORRECT TAGNASH AGAIN!!!

    heh heh heh. Tagnash is a teenage boy who can’t afford to keep his 1987 Dodge POS gassed up…

    YOUR LAUGHTER WILL ONLY MAKE YOUR EVENTUAL DISMEMBERMENT SWEETER.
    TAGNASH IS SAVING UP FOR A LEFT BLINKER LENS COVER. THE DAY OF YOUR DOOM APPROACHES SWIFTLY, FOOLS!!!

  129. Geoff, I was gonna suggest splitting the difference between high wholesale and high retail. Which probably amounts to something like 20% anyway.

  130. Oh hell I’ll buy the lens cover, I just gotta see this shit when it happens.

  131. According to the Boston Globe, Scott Brown outpolls Kerry and Obama and is the most popular politician in MA.

    US Senator Scott Brown, who only months ago was a little-known figure even within the tiny band of Republicans in the state Senate, not only catapulted to national stature with his upset US Senate victory, but is today the most popular officeholder in Massachusetts, according to a Boston Globe poll.

    After less than five months in Washington, Brown outpolls such Democratic stalwarts as President Obama and US Senator John F. Kerry in popularity, the poll indicates. He gets high marks not only from Republicans, but even a plurality of Democrats views him favorably. . . .

    The survey of 558 adults in Massachusetts, including 497 likely voters, was taken June 17-23 by the University of New Hampshire’s Survey Center.

    Brown’s backers can be heartened by the depth of his support.

    Asked their opinion of Brown, 55 percent of those polled said they view him favorably, only 18 percent unfavorably. His rating among Republicans is 79 percent favorable, 3 percent unfavorable. And 55 percent of independents — the majority of the state’s voters — say they like him, while only 11 percent have an unfavorable opinion. The poll has a margin of error of 4.2 percent.

    Despite the fact that his election in January was a crushing blow to both the state and national Democratic party, 41 percent of Democrats say they view Brown favorably, and 32 percent, unfavorably.

    In contrast, Kerry was viewed favorably by 52 percent of those polled and unfavorably by 37 percent of the respondents. And in a sign that Obama is a polarizing figure even in Massachusetts, 54 percent of the respondents view him favorably and 41 percent unfavorably, according to the polling data.

  134. What I was saying, is that I didn’t have to pay any DMV fees because it was a gift. I’m not talking about what you’re talking about b-rad. Because it was a gift, it didn’t cost anything to register the vehicles in my name. However, because I had to buy new license plates for one of the vehicles, I had to pay $19.

    If my brother would have sold the vehicle to me, I would have had to pay registration fees.

  135. I understand that, PJ. That’s why I said the state didn’t care about the wealth transfer aspect.

    At least she respected you enough to not pull a “food poisoning” on you at the last minute.

  156. It’s supposed to be cool all the rest of the week. So I guess I shouldn’t suffer through a run in 80 degree weather today.

    Plus it’s windy.

  157. I think I have an answer for you, Jazz:

  158. At least she respected you enough to not pull a “food poisoning” on you at the last minute.

    That was my real fear, that I would drive to SD and she’d have something “come up” at the last minute.

    Still, I think her concern for her kids is bullshit. I’m pretty sure her nephew wouldn’t kill more than one.

  159. PJM, please go to hardware store to get dupe keys BEFORE you go to beach.

    What?! Is everything OK?

  191. If you love abortion, you’ll LOVE this!!! Planned Parenthood has “misplaced” $1.3 Billion TAX dollars.

    According to the GAO report, Planned Parenthood Federation of America audits show the organization spent only $657.1 million between 2002 and 2008 from federal government grants and programs when the abortion behemoth’s annual reports show it took in $2 billion from government grants and programs during the same time period.

    “That leaves $1.3 billion unaccounted for. That’s not pocket change,” said STOPP national director Rita Diller. “Why the discrepancy? These numbers don’t add up and from an organization with a track record like Planned Parenthood’s, the American people deserve an explanation.”

  192. So….

    The poat has no legs.

    That means it isn’t going anywhere, right?

  193. The only place this poat is going is straight to its room.

    Bad poat!!

  194. The thing about Oreo’s is I can’t stop with just one, especially if I have milk to dip them in.

    Three things I can’t stop with just one, Oreo’s, Toll house Cookies, and Brownies (the food).

    It doesn’t help me in any way with my riding, but I can’t hep it, I just can’t hep it.

  195. Nothing bad, XBrad, this was the original plan. Mr. RFH only has a few vacation days a year, so he spent three of them last week to tool around northern Arizona with me, then head back home. He is hoping to work enough overtime this week and next week to not have to take a vacation day for today.

  196. Three things I can’t stop with just one, Oreo’s, Toll house Cookies, and Brownies (the food) glory hole dongs.

    There you go.

  197. HAHAHAHAHA! *GASP* HAHAHAHAHAH!

    The headline at WaPo regarding the missing Planned Parenthood $1.3 Billion TAX dollars?

    Planned Parenthood’s missing millions.

    Sure. That’s true. $1.3 BILLION is made up of 1,300 MILLION, so, yes, technically, Planned Parenthood is missing millions. Technically, green is a composite of yellow and blue, too, so my lawn could accurately be described as yellow and blue. Technically. However, such a description also implies a false state of affairs, namely that the colors aren’t combined. Likewise, a description of “missing millions” implies that the lost funds are limited to singular millions of dollars, not THOUSANDS of millions, i.e., BILLIONS, of dollars.

  198. That means it isn’t going anywhere, right?

    It can’t run away. That makes it just like xbad’s dream date.

  199. “glory hole dongs.”

    Are those made by Hostess?

  200. Oh, I thought I was gonna meet him and the kids.

    Too bad.

    I hate to admit it, but meeting the husbands has been as much fun as meeting the Hostagettes.

  201. Brad, I think I’d have more fun meeting the wives. But then again, I’m not married to an inflatable sheep.

  202. It can’t run away. That makes it just like xbad’s dream date.

    Well, since we’re talking fantasy, they run toward me…

  203. Are those made by Hostess?

    Nope. They’re made by Host.
