Hostage Summary – January 16, 2011

YEAH, WE’RE READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL…..

Aggie’s husband finally let her out of bed so she could make him some dinner.  Then the snake got loose.

Liberals use their “extraordinary persuasive charisma to interest blase, apathetic, oblivious and at times hostile voters to listen to the voice of justice and consanguinity”.  

Hostages use their “extraordinary persuasive charisma” to convince “blase, apathetic, oblivious, and at times hostile” women to do sick, perverted things to and/or with them.

Priorities, people.  It’s all about priorities…..

The State of Texas may not recover if the “Texas Wimmen’s Wine and Whine” lollapalooza actually materializes.  Cathy’s already firing up her embroidery machine, and locations are being scouted as we speak.  Catchy slogans (“Sohos does I-35”) are being tested. 

Pendejo and Rosetta started packing their suitcases; PG is gonna have to borrow one of Rosie’s dresses for the occasion.

Aggie says nylon and fur.  TiFW says leather and chains.  Hostage men across the nation “stand” at attention

Peej practiced her mad HTML skilz and promptly killed the thread. 

Sean had to answer a LOT of questions; he decided to go back to bed instead.

Sox got a Brazilian

Da Bears

POL pictures get sent to Rosetta; sheep and goat pictures get sent to the Chief.  Sounds about right…..

Michael does floors; Cathy knows how to use a timing light.

VMax is in love with his latest lady friend.  She’s a real looker!

Roamy wisely sent home her liberal-minded volunteer.  Who says Conservatives are violent?  She drug herself home, flopped down, and opened a beer.

Herr walked in, wearing his red Speedo.

Cathy kept bragging about her Bacon Brunch.  If we didn’t love her so much….. 

The Jets advance, but this truth still remains:

ALL THE LADIES LOVE TRUE PATRIOTS:

(Hey, if the men can haz cheerleaders, then the gals can haz quarterbacks, right?) 

.

Well, it’s gonna be Steelers vs. Jets and Bears vs. Packers next week; this should be fun!

Have a nice evening, folks…..

  1. This poat has a dude in it. Boooooo.

  2. Nicely done, The Resa.

  3. Leon cupcakes are the “in” thing right now and I have to admit the perfect food

    As food fads go, this one blows chunks compared to the perfection of bacon.

  4. This poat is categorically deficient.

  5. Yeah, we should add some categories. Like MAN ASS.

  6. So who is going to summarize TiFW’s summary threads every night?

  7. why do women find men’s asses so interesting?

  8. So who is going to summarize TiFW’s summary threads every night?

    Ameriwhatever….

  9. why do women find men’s asses so interesting?

    A healthy, firm rear end is a strong indicator of reproductive fitness in the adult male.

    That or women are dirty perverts.

  10. >> Well, it’s gonna be Steelers vs. Jets and Bears vs. Packers next week; this should be fun!

    The Patriots beat every one of these teams this season. Every. Fucking. One.

    Oh, well. That’s the great thing about the postseason. None of that matters.

    Shame they can’t apply that in NCAA FBS.

    Related: Mrs. Andy is now watching something called the “Golden Globes.” Contrary to my hopes, it has nothing to do with a couple of perfectly proportioned knockers.

  11. >> why do women find men’s asses so interesting?

    The wallet’s usually nearby?

  12. why do women find men’s asses so interesting?

    Same reason you guys find boobs so fascinating (when you figure it out, let us know….).

    Hey, I was just keeping myself busy during the games……

  13. Great Brady pic Tifw!

  14. I don’t find men’s asses interesting. I find men w/ tight, cute asses interesting. Or at least ogleable.

  15. Same reason you guys find boobs so fascinating (when you figure it out, let us know….).

    Boobs are fun to play with and they have nipples that, if played with properly, drive women crazy.

    If you find a guy who likes his ass played with, he’s gay.

  16. Ack. I have to watch that as well. I’d be on board with the show if there was more Mila Kunis and less middle aged white guys.

    Lesbian Golden Globes…Hmmmm.

  17. Ack. I have to watch that as well.

    I gave up on awards shows years ago. Bunch of egotists who think they walk on water patting each other on the back for some mindless BS.

    No thank you.

  18. Good job, once again. TiFW.

    And Bacon Brunch is still with us. It’s odor traveled all through the house.

  19. +1, wiser.

    I could give a shit about Hollyweird awards shows for obvious reasons, but I don’t even like the CMAs and I’m a country music fan.

  20. I really like not having a TV.

  21. Tatts – Did you get a hotplate? Which one?

  22. Wow, I wasn’t around five minutes today, and got not just two mentions, but the FOIST mention in the poat.

    BEST POAT EVER!!!!

  23. It’s coming in the mail MCPO. It’s the same brand that I was originally looking at, but just the one burner instead of the double.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000I14C7I/ref=oss_product

    Dumping $1000 into the car and the same into replacing the comp set the hotplate date back a bit.

  24. We went and watched The Deathy Hallows today.

    10 out of 10 rubber fists, even it made Mrs. BiW cry.

  25. Did anybody drop a bowling ball on anybody else’s toes today?

  26. How come I never get mentioned in the summaries? *pouts*

  27. I want to see that so bad BiW

  28. Me too, Sohos. Glad they made it into a two-parter.

  29. why do women find men’s asses so interesting?

    Me? I like imagining how they’d feel under my hands. rawr.

    same for a nice set of shoulders.

    Too much wine with dinner?

  30. same for a nice set of shoulders.

    Arms–triceps/biceps. Yum.

  31. Quarterbacks are generally pussies. Tom Brady does not break the mold. Hostagettes deserve a real man. May I present to you, Vince Wilfork, NE Pat…..Double-Nutted STUD!!

    http://is.gd/XklGUi

  32. Too much wine with dinner?

    Hell no.

    *opens another bottle of wine*

    *pours Roamy a glass*

  33. I want to see that so bad BiW

    Be prepared. Its long.

    Me? I like imagining how they’d feel under my hands. rawr.

    same for a nice set of shoulders.

    *tears sleves of shirt, does several shoulder rolls*

  34. BiW – 8 out of 10 for me, but it did convey the characters’ desperation very well.

  35. NROs Herman Cain interview: http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/257179/citizen-cain-interview

  36. BiW – 8 out of 10 for me, but it did convey the characters’ desperation very well.

    We’ll see it in real life if Obamacare doesn’t get the shanking it deserves.

  37. How come I never get mentioned in the summaries? *pouts*

    Maybe it’s the pouting…

    Share something that sizzles, and you might get TiFW’s attention.

  38. Oh, and y’all will be so excited to know that my Tres Leches cake came out perfecto.

  39. Wife and daughter units returned from indianapolis a little while ago. Daughter proudly holding her National Champion medal and jacket – we are the proud!

  40. Tattoo,
    I am sorry!

  41. BiW – Yeah, and I’m a bit long in the tooth for that kind of life.

  42. Correct me if I’m wrong…my spanish is a bit sketchy…..but doesn’t Tres Leches translate literally as “Three Titties”? I think I want a piece.

  43. Oh, and y’all will be so excited to know that my Tres Leches cake came out perfecto.

    Really? The piece I licked off my face was a little dry…

  44. Three milks, iirc.

  45. T2D, congratulate her from us!!!

  46. Tattoo,
    I am sorry!

    Me too. But wtf, it’s not like I ever had any money anyway.

  47. BiW – Yeah, and I’m a bit long in the tooth for that kind of life.

    If it comes to that, I promise a real funeral for you if it is at all in my power when the time comes, sir.

  48. my first view of Bobs Burgers?
    It sucks

  49. Tres Leches so called because you use evaporated milk, condensed milk and heavy cream in the liquid.

    Really? The piece I licked off my face was a little dry…

    I was careful, BisW…. didn’t want the liquid to get in your eyes.

    That’s called being considerate!!!

  50. Congratulations, T2D!!!!

  51. I like them long BiW…and legs, stomachs, for sure shoulders…bunk!

  52. Check your email Tattoo,
    you have a leetle bit more.

  53. Check your email Tattoo,
    you have a leetle bit more.

    You did not! That’s way way way too much.

  54. Aggie dear, will you make me a Tres ChiChis cake then?

  55. Congrats T2D!

  56. Congrats T2D

  57. So long as a guy has an ass, I am more a leg/hand girl.

  58. No I didn’t.

  59. My daughter just made Chicken Parmisean for supper. It was wunerful. I’m pretty sure the pasta was loaded to the gills with evil gluten.

  60. I missed something.

    Details, T2D?

  61. Share something that sizzles, and you might get TiFW’s attention.

    Ok, here goes…I have a huge crush on Cathy!

  62. Thanks guys!

    *raises glass of tres chichis*

  63. If that is Tom Brady, you can keep him. Any man who kicks his baby mama to the curb when she’s 8 months pregnant in favor of a supermodel isn’t a man in my book. I will admit he’s an ass, though.

  64. Aggie dear, will you make me a Tres ChiChis cake then?

    Three would have been….odd.

  65. my first view of Bobs Burgers?
    It sucks

    I liked the series premiere last week.

  66. Tell it, PattyAnn!!!

    *Licks eyebrows in Bridget Moynahan’s general direction*

  67. Oh….so that’s Tom Brady??

    Hm…not particularly all that IMO. And the fact that he’s a fucktard doesn’t help, either.

  68. Three would have been….odd.

    Two words: Total Recall.

  69. Hands, and eyes

  70. HA!! Tat beat you to it, Sean!

  71. I’m against the triple-knocker. It’s just wrong.

  72. Andy – my daughter and her cheer squad won the national championship this weekend in the large middle school category. Also won the grand award for highest point total of all the teams there (over 500 teams).

    I’m here, I cheer, get used to it!

  73. Ok, here goes…I have a huge crush on Cathy!

    Bitch, please!

    What Hostage guy doesn’t?

  74. HA!! Tat beat you to it, Sean!

    Damnit! And she even came up with a funny pic, too.

  75. My son cooked dinner for Tom Brady and Gizelle Buchen once.

    He had a salad and she had grilled lamb chops… and she sent word to ‘the chef’ that she liked her lamb chops very much.

  76. “Two words: Total Recall.”

    That’s what they should have done to Schwarzenegger.
    Oh, wait!

  77. Excellent, T2D.

  78. Damnit! And she even came up with a funny pic, too.

    Just go ahead and accept that I’m better than you Sean 😉

    On that note, I’m going to bed b/c I can.

  79. T2D, both our kids ended up in Indianapolis for Bands of America Grand National championships, always held in November after football season is over with. We’ve spent money and time in Indianapolis for those awesome events.

    Good times.

  80. Have a goodnight, Tat!!

  81. Three would have been….odd.

    There’s an incredibly bad mathematical pun in there somewhere.

  82. Tats I feel your pain…my car is costing me another 200 tomorrow that – don’t have. That puts me at 1100 so far.

  83. I flew in to Indianapolis once and then bussed to Terre Haute. That is the complete and total list of my experience in that state.

  84. It’s a freaking epidemic. I spent a cool $520 on two new tires for my daughter’s Tahoe. I’d”ve damned sure rather done something else with the money.

  85. I drove through Indiana. Up and down and sideways.

  86. Cathy – I didn’t get to go to this one because my son had a weestling tournament this weekend. I love going to those national events tho, always a good time.

  87. My rv was built in Indiana, my only connection to the who’s your state.

  88. I have the postage stamp for the state of Indiana.

  89. Well, I got beaten to the Tres ChiChis pic …

    I’ll just leave this here anyway: http://tinyurl.com/4o7ne9f

  90. I spent a cool $520 on two new tires for my daughter’s Tahoe.

    I spent that on 4 Goodyear Fortera’s and can get 3 years out of them. With a generous rebate on the next 4. Dropping it to under $300 for all 4.

    But you gotta buy from the Goodyear store.

    *hangs head in shame…..I was a Firestone man for most of my life*

  91. Heh. My dad always called those Squarestones, vmax.

  92. Nice rack, AG.

  93. vmax, it was 6:30 on a Saturday night and the only place open was Sears. I’m pretty sure they fucked me. But I’ll try not to give them another chance.

  94. My Grandpa, Dad, Uncles, and Cousins all worked for Firestone Andy.

    I feel like a traitor buying Goodyear. But they last better than Bridgstone’s

  95. Nice rack, AG.

    I’m pretty sure that’s the first time anyone has said that to me.

  96. Hm…I am forbidden from that link, ArmedGeek.

    *weeps inconsolably*

  97. Yup PG
    Sears is a equal opportunity Screw.

    But they are coast to coast.

  98. My aunt lives in Indiana. I’m not exactly sure why.

  99. yannow, just when you think you’re making it, that maybe you can eeck sumpin out, your refrigerator dies.

    DADGUMIT!! How’m I supposed to celebrate MLK jr day tomorrow with cold beer? that shit ain’t right

  100. Hm…I am forbidden from that link, ArmedGeek.

    *weeps inconsolably*

    There there, Aggs. Just delete the http:// part and you’ll be able to see it.

  101. Speaking of nice racks

    http://bit.ly/eVJanB

  102. Just bought 4 new Cooper tires for my F150, set me back $700+

  103. After this stuff will be my brakes…the kids are starting to wonder if they are ever going to eat again

  104. I mean, without cold beer. I can’t celebrate without cold beer

  105. T2D — I think Indianapolis has itself set up for those championship competitions in that big RCA Dome and the contiguous convention center. It’s a nice mid-size town for that kind of thing. Smart folks.

    The Texas bands that competed annually there owned their own semi- trailers and filled them with all the larger instruments, props, uniforms, and get-up for the performances… and started heading to Indianapolis a few days before the rest of the kids headed up there in chartered buses. The ‘professionalism’ of these events can blow you away if you’ve never experienced one before.

    Btw. Little ole L.D.Bell, private school sitting right here between Dallas and Ft. Worth is a regular nemesis for many of the Grand National competitors. And Marion Catholic in Ohio is another one. Crap, those schools are good.

  106. OOOOO! Sorry about your fridge dying, PJM.

    Crap!

    See if you lived up north, you could put your beer out in the snow right now.

  107. Coopers are good tires Brew.

    But you are screwed. Maybe you can do the warrantee for the next 4

  108. PJM, you have to have COLD beer.

    I’ll send Brad to get you ice.

  109. Hey Brew. Ice down a cold one for PJmomma, will ya!?

  110. Coopers are too soft. They do not last.

  111. Peej: http://bit.ly/fb6r0H

  112. Pjm I had some Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale tonight it was fantastiC

  113. How come I never get mentioned in the summaries? *pouts*

    I’m sorry, sweetness – I keep trying to find a way to work your comments into the conversation! I’ll do better; but I DO read your comments! Don’t worry – you’ll get mentioned soon…..

    T2D, please tell your daughter “Congratulations” for us – that’s great!

    Sorry that today’s Summary isn’t up to snuff; as I said, it was a slow day – I think everyone was watching the games…..

    And I want some of what Roamy’s having!

  114. But you are screwed. Maybe you can do the warrantee for the next 4

    What!? They are 50K rated! Why am I screwed?

  115. Cathy uses her Hostage power wisely.

  116. Hey Brew. Ice down a cold one for PJmomma, will ya!?

    One Red Stripe left from my Packer Party™ last night is all yours Peej!

  117. Have to pass along a Rebecca story:

    Rebecca wanted to change into her pajamas, so she was telling Mr. TiFW to “Help me, Daddy!”

    Mr. TiFW was busy watching a show, so he told her, “You know how to do that – if you knew how many women are asking me to help them take off their clothes…..”

    Rebecca said, “Oh puh-lease, Daddy…..”

    Had to laugh……

  118. Don’t worry – you’ll get mentioned soon…..

    Yeah!! *pumps fist into the air*

  119. TiF never mentions me in the summary. And I invented them!!!!
    Well maybe Americano did before me.

    My bad. TiF takes it to the next level.

    I approve!

  120. I’d be one of the last people in the world to ever contradict a woman of your grace, poise, and stature, Mrs. Cathy, but……..LD Bell High School is part of the Hurst Euliss Bedrford Independent School District. Along with Trinity. I’d bet my next paycheck on it.

  121. Coopers are too soft. They do not last.

    Thats what she said

  122. TiF never mentions me in the summary.

    You escape the taint of scum and villany, and you complain?

  123. Coopers are too soft. They do not last.

    The Warranty. Trust the Warranty, on tires only.

  124. There is leftover pork, about half a pound. Rocketboy ate a dozen potato dumplings.

    **feels shift in Earth’s gravity

  125. I dated a chick named Cooper once. She was actually rather boney.

  126. Yeah!! *pumps fist into the air*

    Heh, heh, heh….. be careful what you wish for 😉

    TiF never mentions me in the summary.

    Huh? You were mentioned yesterday AND today, and a couple of times before that….
    *makes note to self that SOME PEOPLE aren’t reading all the way through her posts*

  127. I’d be one of the last people in the world to ever contradict a woman of your grace, poise, and stature, Mrs. Cathy, but……..LD Bell High School is part of the Hurst Euliss Bedrford Independent School District. Along with Trinity. I’d bet my next paycheck on it.

    I stand, or sit, or kneel… corrected. Pendejo. You are right.

  128. I may have cheated. An old boy I knew from a former life was the head FB coach there for many years.

  129. Cathy, NO KNEELING!!!

  130. Aggie acts as if I might posess the manners of a cur.

  131. Vmax, I thought you had said that Garnet had been adopted?

  132. >> *makes note to self that SOME PEOPLE aren’t reading all the way through her posts*

    Don’t take it personally; this is the H2. I didn’t even know we had posts for months.

  133. Huh. My neighbor Matt, the HVAC guy who has pulled my AC chestnuts outta the fire several times when I was out of town, damned decent guy, came by this evening to tell us his mom passed away today. Nothing awful, a long and full 85 years of life, took care of herself. Passed away at home surrounded by her children and grandchildren, two of which I have watched grow up for 15 years (they’re driving now!).

    I was just thinking, it’s nice to live in a neighborhood with guys like Matt for a neighbor.

  134. *begins tomorrow’s summary thus:*

    “BrewFan’s date compared him to his Cooper tires – flaccid and with no staying power”

    Still wanna be mentioned, honeybun?

  135. vmax adopted one of pjm’s kids?

    Did she at least get a new fridge out of the deal?

    And a few beers?

  136. Aggie acts as if I might posess the manners of a cur.

    My apologies for thinking you might….

  137. Dave, small town neighborhoods are what America ought to be about. I loved being able to let my kids run the ‘hood from about age 6 up without having to worry to much about them. I wish every kid in America could live the carefree childhood that mine did. Wasn’t a single goddamn drive by or dead hooker thewhole 18 or so years.

  138. 100% gentleman here.

  139. gnite homies,

    5:30 date with INSANITY requires me to retire for the evening.

  140. worst thing is we made a Costco trip, second worst thing is that we didn’t notice until everything in our fridge was ruined because we were working like crazy doing yard work.

    ugh.

    oh well. I guess once I can afford it, I’ll be able to get the size refrigerator I’ve been wanting, so that’s good.

    MWAH!!

    gonna go borrow my brother’s fridge from 1974 I think

  141. Only odd thing in my neighborhood is coyote sightings.

    And I totally believe you, PG. Totally.

  142. Still wanna be mentioned, hun?

    heh, don’t mess with Texas.

  143. Pendejo, I simply ASS-U-MEd it was private because someone told me it was. I didn’t check that on my own until you corrected me. So my bad…

    They are a fine band. And I can tell you that there is always a bit of a clash between the public schools and private ones because the public TEXAS schools have to adhere to strict guidelines for the amount of time the directors can practice each week. The private schools can practice all they want, so the students have to work harder and frequently perform better.

    It’s very good to know that they have been winning competitions even having to adhere to those same strict guidelines. Good on them.

  144. And BrewFan apparently left before he could approve “his” entry for tomorrow –

  145. Teresa, the links in the summary made me laugh.

    I also bookmarked a couple… 😉

  146. No Lips,
    I am Garnet’s foster dad.

    I tried to foster a 2 yo golden named Marley.

    He was adopted immediately. I thought Zeke and Marley would have fun for a few weeks.

  147. Teresa, you don’t have to start this ‘get approval’ thing. Just write what you want. You are queen of the summary.

    Only odd thing in my neighborhood is coyote sightings.

    Aggie, I watched a coyote cross the road in a less populated area on my way to church this morning. We get them right in our neighborhood also and can hear packs of them late at night.

  148. Just write what you want. You are queen of the summary.
    Write what is funny. Or make it funny like you do.

  149. Oh I know I don’t have to “get approval” – I’m just messing with BrewFan…..

  150. And Aggie, I’m guessing you bookmarked that picture of Rosie and PG in their pretty frocks, right?

  151. When I lived in Southlake, we were covered up with coyotes. Road runners, too.

    I remember thinking, “holy shit, I moved to Looney Tunes” when I saw one of each within a few hundred yards of each other right after we moved there.

  152. I’m guessing you bookmarked that picture of Rosie and PG in their pretty frocks, right?

    May have to use it for my avatar…. 😉

  153. The Resa, your summaries are great and because I don’t want you to quit doing them, I want you to know that no one would mind if you reduced it to once or twice a week

  154. Cathy, you are right about the state imposed time constraints on extra-curriculars in tx. However, I’m told that the “8 hour rule” is followed about as closely as the speedlimit laws on LBJ freeway. If you ain’t cheatin, you ain’t trying to win.

  155. But if you want to do them daily, that’s fine too, I just don’t want you to get burnt out!

  156. Yeah, that’s true. Daily’s great, but that’s a lot of work.

    Plus lots of days just aren’t that worthy of summarization anyway.

  157. PJM – I’m sorry your fridge died. You could use my garage. Outside low tonight will be 11F, which means the garage will be about 30F.

  158. Plus lots of days just aren’t that worthy of summarization unless MCPO is commenting anyway.

    Fixt!

  159. Well, feeling a bit tired and still sneezy, so I’m off to soak in the tub. Y’all have a great evening, and hope you get a second fridge soon, PJM.

  160. You’re too good to me mcpo

  161. Oh, fuckin-A!!!: http://blogs.dailymail.com/donsurber/archives/28041

  162. Fixt!

    Trust me, they had it right the first time.

  163. Oh – I just assumed people wanted a daily summary. I’ll get into a rhythm as time goes on; if there isn’t much going on (or if I’m busy doing “Mom” things), I may skip it. We’ll see how it goes…..

  164. wiser, in case you were wondering, here’s the best Golden Globes so far.

    http://bit.ly/fRkED0

  165. Very nice globes indeed.

  166. I think they just ran out of beer.

  167. Andy, did you really make geoff walk 4 miles in Boston in the middle of winter?

    Nice guy.

    btw, geoff, maybe you and I should stop trying to get together. Seems it always snows heavily if we do.

  168. I didn’t make him walk. I thought he’d cab it. But noooooo.

  169. How many Courics equal one Gore?

  170. I didn’t make him walk. I thought he’d cab it. But noooooo.

    You could have treated him like I did that whore Dave…. drive hijm around for an hour or so, then throw him out of the car and tell him to get a cab.

  171. And then follow the cab 0.1 miles to the hotel.

  172. How many Courics equal one Gore?

    duh.

    That’s like asking how many parsecs are in an hour.

  173. >> I didn’t make him walk. I thought he’d cab it. But noooooo.

    Wiser can drive you around for an hour, and finally dump you off to a cab a block away from your hotel.

    If he’s just tryin to feel you up.

  174. And then follow the cab 0.1 miles to the hotel.

    I wanted to see if he got picked up again.

  175. I see that you neglected to mention the blindfold.

    heh heh heh.

    I see you remember our evening….

  176. Andy:

    I like Surber’s article. Funny thing, though, I coulda swore I read that somewhere else a few days ago.

    I just can’t put my finger in it, though

  177. What? Huh?
    I am passing out now…err going to bed.

    Toyota wins top gear

  184. Andy:

    I like Surber’s article. Funny thing, though, I coulda swore I read that somewhere else a few days ago.

    I just can’t put my finger in it, though

    It wasn’t the article you’re looking for.

    However, when I see Nice Deb signing on to the attitude, I think the Left can start pissing their pants now.

  195. In its obsessive desire to promote the virtues of electric cars, the BBC proudly showed us last week how its reporter Brian Milligan was able to drive an electric Mini from London to Edinburgh in a mere four days – with nine stops of up to 10 hours to recharge the batteries (with electricity from fossil fuels).

    What the BBC omitted to tell us was that in the 1830s, a stagecoach was able to make the same journey in half the time, with two days and nights of continuous driving. This did require 50 stops to change horses, but each of these took only two minutes, giving a total stopping time of just over an hour and a half.

  205. You know the fucked up thing is that we’d lose all the good things of modern life, but we’d still have the crushing taxes and the intrusive government. Honestly, I’d give up the technology in trade for a tiny government that had no idea who I was and low taxes. I’d love to live in a world where I didn’t have to give a damn what happens more than 100 miles away.

    you’re missing the point. They want US to go back to the “good old days” where we worked in the mines and on the farms to provide the good life to the them.

    The fact that they have been able to convince a sizable portion of society that this is a good thing is absolutely mind-bottling.

  223. Anyone see the story about the school in SC that canceled the day off for MLK day to make up for the snow days they’ve had?

    Jesse Jackass and Al “the Killer” Sharpton have both declared that decision to be “unAmerican.”

  232. AG – Suuuure it is.

    Every single day is a celebration of being “white.”

    Of course, the whole rest of the year we get to enjoy our yachts and big houses and servants here in White America.

    (I have a bad feeling that comment will be taken out of context and used against me one day)

  236. What those shitheels at NAACP and THUG! forget is that if it weren’t for a majority of white citizens supporting civil rights for all citizens, they’d be sitting at the back of the fucking bus.

    Or to go a little further back, they’d still be slaves.

  237. I had a “discussion” with some black girls at my JC back in the day, but apparently, it was really not worth it to discuss anything with me because I’d never understand as I haven’t suffered oppression for the past 500 years.

    500 years? Wow, those black chicks were oooold……

  241. Xbrad, PJMomma… Crap. Don’t get me started…

    I could talk for hours about the ‘old white men’ and women who dug deep into their pocket books and took risks to start schools for black children and build churches for black communities in the south, when no one else would help.

  242. Martin Luther King Jr. was a registered Republican, btw.

    Ever wonder how they were named after Martin Luther?

    I think I know…

  243. That’s what I said to her…..I said, but YOU haven’t been alive for that long.

    Doesn’t matter. It’s an oppression that gets handed down from generation to generation.

    It’s more like a bitterness to me.

  244. King’s father was born “Michael King”, and Martin Luther King, Jr., was originally named “Michael King, Jr.,” until the family traveled to Europe in 1934 and visited Germany. His father soon changed both of their names to Martin Luther in honor of the German Protestant leader Martin Luther

    Wiki article.

  245. I could have gotten that grant had I been a minority. That was one of the other factors…….there are certain criteria that get you more points for the grant. Being a minority, being on parole and being on unemployment. Well, I didn’t have any of those, so I had to bank on the other point system which was super low income, but alas, even though there’s 6 of us living on $16 an hour, we make too much money.

    oh well, like I said, I’ll just learn the stuff myself. I don’t need them OR a refrigerator.

    Refrigerators in 80+ degree weather are overrated anyways

    nah, I didn’t mean to sound like I was complaining. I was just stating the facts.

    Guess what? My brother who’s going to Afghanistan on the 28th from Ft. Hood gave me his refrigerator. His house is about 6 hours+ round trip from us, so we’ll wait til next weekend and make the drive up there and we got a fridge. AND it’s to tiny it’ll actually fit in my kitchen that was built for midgets, well except for the cupboards that are so high I can’t reach squat, but other than that………..

    so, it’s very lucky because now I don’t have to go to another room to get my refrigerated stuff when I want to cook. And his fridge is all empty and ready to be used.

    See how lucky I am?

  259. ah, ooops, sorry clintbird

  260. From Ft. Hood?

    My neighbor.

  261. …and “WickedPinto” hadn’t been thought of…

    not even a glint in my eye

  262. From Ft. Hood?

    My neighbor.

    Here’s there right now. Why didn’t you invite him over for Thanksgiving? That wasn’t very nice.

  263. Your brother is at Ft. Hood. Crap. Why didn’t you tell us?

    Email me his information, if he’s cool with it. Okay?

    And glad you can get access to a fridge. It’s not good to let them sit without anything in them anyway, so you got that going for ya.

  264. PJ is still killing threads, I see.

  265. oh he’d be cool with that. I didn’t realize you guys were all so close. maybe he could have seen you guys around Christmas?

    well aren’t I just the worst sister in the whole wide world?

  267. well aren’t I just the worst sister in the whole wide world?

    Maybe, but I get to come in second.

  268. So, how does one ‘kill’ a thread anyway, Xbrad?

  269. PJ is still killing threads, I see.

    It’s what I do, it’s who I be.

    Ft. Hood is 20 miles west of me.

    Omg! So when you hire me and I come to Texas for my yearly review, do I have to do some sort of computery stuff at Ft. Hood for you? Cuz that would be pretty sweet

But seriously, for a supposedly deep thinking intellectual, Krugman just churns out nothing but boiler plate bien pensant waffle, week after week. There’s no thinking involved.

    This is why I tip so well in strip bars. Those girls need to get off the milk carton and into an apartment.

    The best use of all MY wealth is to buy my enemies a fat helping of pain. Fuck you, Narayana. I’ve got a gift for you.

  364. Dear Narayana,

    Suck my ass boils.

    Love,

  365. “Mare did you get the hat? We’re supposed to start our new witness protection cover story this week.”

    No, damn it, I need the hat.

    Let’s get together and get our story right!

  366. I will let Davy Crockett tell Narayana something from the floor of congress.

    “Mr. Speaker: I have as much respect for the memory of the deceased, and as much sympathy for the suffering of the living, if there be, as any man in this House, but we must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for part of the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living. I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress has not the power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member on this floor knows it. We have the right as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money”

  367. Good one, Vman.

  368. Vmax – I may have to ‘borrow’ that quote.

  369. Oh, BTW – Good Morning!

  370. Mornin’ all! As predicted, Rebecca was up bright and early on the morning that she DIDN’T have school. And DD#3 is still in bed, like a good little teenager.

    Love that quote, VMax! I guess Mr. Crockett was more than just a guy in a pretty coonskin hat, huh?

    My favorite quote from Davy is legendary here in the Lone Star State: “The rest of you may go to Hell. As for me, I’m going to Texas.”

  371. Here you go MCPO

    Wow that is good! if you have the time It is BiW long but WOW

  372. Has anyone ever seen Jim Nabors and Neil Sedaka together?

    I think not.

    Why?

  375. So Mr Crockett was walking down a road in his district and sees a farmer plowing a field. That farmer knew far more than most do today. Mr Crockett was equally inpressive

    “‘So you see, Colonel, you have violated the Constitution in what I consider a vital point. It is a precedent fraught with danger to the country, for when Congress once begins to stretch its power beyond the limits of the Constitution, there is no limit to it, and no security for the people. I have no doubt you acted honestly, but that does not make it any better, except as far as you are personally concerned, and you see that I cannot vote for you.’

    “I tell you I felt streaked. I saw if I should have opposition, and this man should go to talking, he would set others to talking, and in that district I was a gone fawn-skin. I could not answer him, and the fact is, I was so fully convinced that he was right, I did not want to. But I must satisfy him, and I said to him:

    “‘Well, my friend, you hit the nail upon the head when you said I had not sense enough to understand the Constitution. I intended to be guided by it, and thought I had studied it fully. I have heard many speeches in Congress about the powers of Congress, but what you have said here at your plow has got more hard, sound sense in it than all the fine speeches I ever heard. If I had ever taken the view of it that you have, I would have put my head into the fire before I would have given that vote; and if you will forgive me and vote for me again, if I ever vote for another unconstitutional law I wish I may be shot.’

    “He laughingly replied: ‘Yes, Colonel, you have sworn to that once before, but I will trust you again upon one condition. You say that you are convinced that your vote was wrong. Your acknowledgment of it will do more good than beating you for it. If, as you go around the district, you will tell people about this vote, and that you are satisfied it was wrong, I will not only vote for you, but will do what I can to keep down opposition, and, perhaps, I may exert some little influence in that way.’

  376. Has anyone ever seen Jim Nabors and Neil Sedaka together?

    Garden hose would take care of that.

  377. Wow, Vmax, I have got to read this book:

    The Life of Colonel David Crockett by Edward Sylvester Ellis

  378. “Garden hose would take care of that.”

    HAHAHAHAHHA

  379. Why was Neil Sedaka wearing a fireman’s helmet?

  380. Mare, what color tutu are you wearing this morning?

  381. Why was Neil Sedaka wearing a fireman’s helmet?

    Because he’s circumcised?

  382. My latest effort at Ace’s: http://minx.cc/?post=310839

    I was going to cross-post it here, but it looks like Rosetta’s working on something.

  383. If you people don’t acknowledge my music links, I’m going to have to start linking, “the good stuff”. An by good stuff, I mean the crappiest craptastic, crapola I can find.

  384. You read Surber regularly, Andy?

  385. I read a lot of his stuff, but it’s usually from things getting passed around on Twitter.

  386. Sorry Chief, no YouTube at work. I’m not ignoring you, I have an excuse.

  387. I checked out Superman/Kryptonite, Chief. I’m not much on Three Doors Down. This is more my speed today:

  388. Andy – Great link!

  389. Good job, Andy.

    PS: You misspelled repudiation.

  390. Hahahahaha

  391. I stop at Surber’s daily. It’s a love-hate thing. He’s a recovering liberal, and sometimes his liberal roots cloud his thinking. He’s got some very good and original takes on things, though.

  392. This poat stinks!

  393. Hi Gemini! What interesting objects are you carrying around in your rectum today?

  394. Hahahaha! MFM takes it in the ASS:

    A new national study among 1,437 self-reported Democrats, Republicans and Independents revealed that Americans indicated that Sarah Palin was more sincere and believable after viewing her speech in response to the shootings in Tucson. . . .

    Respondents were asked to rate Sarah Palin on a scale from 1-7 regarding likeability, believability and sincerity, with 1 representing “not at all strong in this attribute” and 7 representing “extremely strong in this attribute.”

    With the exception of likeability among Democrats, Palin’s attribute ratings increased among all parties after viewing her speech. The most notable increase was her sincerity ratings, which increased from 2.62 to 2.69 among Democrats, from 5.25 to 5.45 among Republicans and from 3.68 to 3.85 among Independents.

    Seems. though, that the right wing just can’t seem to stop itself when it comes to that violent rhetoric:

    There has been an ‘incredible’ spike in death threats against Sarah Palin in the wake of the Arizona massacre, an aide said today.
    The revelation will come as a blow to those like President Barack Obama who have called for ‘healing’ after the tragedy, when a gunman opened fire at a political meet-and-greet in Tucson, Arizona, killing six and wounding 13.

  395. Three lionesses kill a croc that made the poor choice to attack a lion cub. The photo essay is cool and not overly graphic.

  396. Mrs. Dave is a distant relative of Davy Crockett.

    I think both my girls inherited some stubborn stuff from him.

  397. Mrs. Dave is a distant relative of Davy Crockett.

    That would make her some sort of royalty on the wild frontier.

  404. Pretty good summary of phones and carriers for those looking to get an Android phone:

    Looks like my choice is a wise one, which is unlike me. I’m used to having the crappy phone, but I’ve been happy with my EVO on Sprint.

  405. Man, that didn’t take long.

    The RNC must have a search term in its phone database for all the people who said they wouldn’t contribute until Steele was gone.

  406. Oh man, did you get a call already Andy? I’m probably on the same list!

  407. Hahahahaha, Andy, me, too.

    I see Rosetta’s poat in draft, is he here? Andy, why don’t you put up your Tea Party Delenda Est, and if it gets pushed down like the fat kid, so be it.

  408. OK, I’ll copy it over.

  414. Evidently, the media assault on conservatives in the wake of the Loughner massacre is a construct of the right, an undeserved demonization of the left, who are nothing but collateral victims in this right-wing game of political Risk.
