  21. I’ve heard rumors that cheese is secretly Swiss, but I think the logic behind that theory is full of holes.

  33. What, you don’t think these puns are any gouda?

  34. Nice cheese’n’sausage fest you have here.

    It would be a shame if anything happened to it.

  35. The first thing that cheese needs to do is get out there and meet the public. You know, shake a few hands, kiss a few baby bells.

    As long as cheese is cutting it with the majority of the electorate, I don’t think anyone is really gonna give Edam about that.

  49. Not gonna happen, guys.

    The MFM already found out that cheese’s mom posed for a dirty magazine. http://is.gd/bSwG3w

  50. The Secret Service is conducting an investigation to determine who cut the cheese.

  51. It’s happened so often that I didn’t even notice that one.

    Something about a sausage fest must call me like a dog whistle.

  62. We’re now into complete white-out conditions here.

    What the fuque.

  63. I don’t give edam.

  64. The part I’m not looking forward to in this entire election is waiting for cheese’s votes to be processed.

  67. Any absentee votes for cheese would be shredded by the Dems.

  68. The part I’m not looking forward to in this entire election is waiting for cheese’s votes to be processed.

    It means my refund was higher than normal, for some strange reason…….

  87. Cheese doesn’t have the fire in the belly. Unless its pepper-jack cheese.

    I could vote for pepper-jack.

  88. Cool. Hopefully that credit is worth $5000 and working couples can claim it twice.

    Yup. We have a company there that has IT issues, and I think I got volunteered today. Would likely be week of April 11.

  108. I think I got volunteered today.

    Will they let you in?

  109. Or, more to the point, will US Customs let you back in?

  110. Well they have in the past. No guarantees in life.

  111. Use any one of us as a character reference if you need it. That should help alot.

  112. Yup. We have a company there that has IT issues, and I think I got volunteered today. Would likely be week of April 11.

    You better bring a helmet and they better give you hazard pay.

  113. Better bring a coloring book as well – only 28% of the Portuguese currently have a HS diploma…..

  119. I still remember the first time I saw a spurwing poat in a thread at ace’s. He had jumbled about 4 different story lines together to come up with a total bullshit theory about a jumbled up scenario. I gently tried to straighten the story lines out and unscramble the main themes for him all the while trying not to come off like a condescending dick. Only to find out within a couple of days that the dude either has a hell of a funny schtick going or he’s dumber than a box of ballpeen hammers.

  120. Not so fast there, Smartypants. Let’s start by prying the Ctrl key out of the wall behind the monitor and work backward from there.

  121. >> Not so fast there, Smartypants.

    Oh I’m gonna start by diagramming their internet firewall configuration toots.

    You can’t just eliminate that as a possibility, even with the broken glass and Portuguese murmering upset office workers. They do that, it’s cultural, as I’m sure you are aware.

  122. *listens to the office workers*

    Huh, they really are just saying ‘murmur’ over and over again in Portuguese.

    Well, that’s pretty fucked up.

  123. desculpa, nao faolo Portuguese.

  124. Back from the gym . There were way too many people there.

  125. “There were way too many people there”

    That’s why nobody goes there anymore.

  126. Also, a big public FUCK YOU shout out to the guy tailgating me on 27 going north.

    I was feeling like giving him an Eddie Bear rant. Asshole. I go to pass someone in the left lane, and this guy going 80+ miles an hour can wait for me to pass the person so get’s on my ass.

    Sorry, I’m only going 73, dude. Fuck off. I think his wife yelled at him .

    I gave him “the look” as he passed.

    Asshole.

  127. And, I did NOT pull up in front of him. He just was going so fast. He came out of no where.

    Asshole.

  128. Where did everyone go?

    Don’t tell me the gym.

  129. The Count Censored is sooooo hysterical!!!

  130. I had a similar sitch with a tractor-trailer one night a few weeks back Carin. I had plenty of room to get in there and he ran up my ass so fast he must have been doing 85 or 90.

    Three lanes, and now I’m in the middle lane behind another car and the tractor-trailer’s grille is all I can see in my rearview mirror. He was, shall we say, exhibiting his displeasure. After we all passed the slow car in the right lane, he jumped into the right lane, and I did NOT want him next to me, so I went far left lane.

    He passed the car in the middle lane, then got into the middle lane and threw a lit cigarette at me. It hit dead-on the driver’s side of the windshield.

  131. …this little glowing thing zipping through the night at me, then pow! Sparks.

  132. >> It hit dead-on the driver’s side of the windshield.

    It took me years to perfect that skill, except I reserved it for people who were dicks on the road, not nice people just driving.

  133. Anyway, I’m sorry he was having a bad day. Hope it got better.

  153. lauraw, quickly while he’s not looking, open the trunk and throw a file or some sort of prying type tool into the trunk w/Sean. Now speed to the nearest steep road, hopefully one with really high cliffs which drop off to waaaaaaaay down somewhere. Drive to the highest point of the road. Put the car in neutral and push it toward the closest drop off. Tell Sean he should probably try to pry the trunk open. Run like hell toward your awaiting escape vehicle.

  179. Have you guys been following the saga of Lee Stranahan, the lib blogger that worked with Breitbart on Pigford? Here’s his site (and I’m adding it to the blogroll for “diversity”): http://leestranahan.com/

    Ace has linked him a couple of times recently, and I’ve been following him on Twitter since the Pigford piece.

    I’m basically diametrically opposed to him on matters of policy, but he calls bullshit on the MFM/Dem talking point machine on a regular basis.

    His stuff is worth a read, IMNSFHO.

  180. I have been following him lately Andy, a honest Lib with cahones is refreshing.

  181. Vmax, that’s incredible.

    Imagine if it were a Republican fundraiser…

    I remember during the Dem National Convention some reporters were arrested for hanging around on a public sidewalk outside a restaurant where high-level fundraising was going on, too.

    Nary a peep from the MFM.

  182. Few and far between too, vmax.

  183. Heh Laura
    They beat you up if you disagree, Call you a Racist if your mindthoughts are not in sync with them. Lock the press up when they don’t want them around. Lie cheat steel to get their way.

    I want to hang with those people!

  194. I. Own. Comments.

  195. Mrs. Andy is now a solid “NO” after logging about 100.000 flight miles already this year.

    I’m at the Official Hotel by Cyn (I think) bunking with wiser. Which will consist of having somewhere to take a shower and change clothes between the last drink of the night and the first Bloody Mary of the morning.

  211. So is everyone else syncing a new disk on their 1TB RAID1 NAS with DLNA right now? Why not?

  212. Glad to hear you’re locked in for STLMU, Andy. Gonna miss Mrs. Andy tho. She’s such a sweetie.

    Heh. It’s gonna suck for a lot of us if Rosie comes back and tells us that it’s one of the hotels where he used to “work” with his Thai boyfriend.

  213. Hi Mare!

  214. Yes, I foraged.

  215. Why not?

    Um, because I don’t know what that is?

  216. They shoulda gone for two. Oh well.

  217. I tried to get her to come with (Chicagoland terminology appropriate for the MidWest Meatup™). But she’s actually looking forward to some time with just her and the kids (WTF?).

    She’s actually flying out your way tomorrow, Cyn, but it’s a really quick turnaround.

  218. Stupid commies.

  219. Hello, Vmax!

  220. Too bad so quick, Andy; maybe we squeeze in a lunch or coffee next time? Tell her she must plan this in!!

  221. stupid fuckin commies.

  222. So we’re a basketball liveblog now?

    Next: NASCAR

    Because nothing’s more exciting than a 400-mile lefthand turn.

  223. I must extend the bug perimeter.

  224. You ever tried minced garlic on your steaks, Dave? Heaven.

  225. I LOVE NASCAR.

    The best interviews of ANY sport. The best announcers of ANY sport (If I hear one more ass reporter ask a football play, “how did that win make you feel?” I’ll puke) . If you understand how much strategy goes into it, you would be surprised.

    The last several races I’ve watched have been decided on the last laps. I’d rather watch a sport where they are overtly patriotic and God loving than most of the crap I’m usually glued to. They always televise the prayer before NASCAR.

    You do need to watch it and get some general understanding of it to really enjoy it. I’m hooked!

  226. I like smothering my steak in caramelized onions and mushrooms in a bourpon sauce.

    Yum

  227. Sounds delicious Vman.

    All this talk of food is making me hungry.

  228. NASCAR is something only Palin-lovin neanderthals could watch.

    It’s an unserious non-sport.

  229. I’ve tried. Lord knows I’ve tried. But … booooriiinnggg.

    And I grew up where they invented the damned thing.

    Going to a race is F-U-N, but hockey is a better TV sport. And I fucking HATE hockey.

  230. Not much for NASCRAP, but MOTOGP is the shizznits!

    Andy,
    Anitas’ 10-TB RAID is humming along nicely!
    No need to sync a new disc at this time…

  231. 10TB?

    Showoff

    /Jealousy

  232. Hockey is for fags.

  233. “but hockey is a better TV sport”

    Completely disagree. The fights that are sanctioned are stupid (because of that, everyone I know doesn’t consider it a sport, imagine sanctioned fights in football) and you can’t follow the puck. Even ESPN says, “let’s slow that down so we can see it.”

    I guarantee I watch more sports than any Hostage (because I can) and hockey sucks. I went to a pro game in Utah and had to drink heavily after the first 30 seconds, where two guys were fighting while 3 refs watched 3 feet away for 3 minutes!!!!. Boooooooring. If I wanted to watch good boxing it wouldn’t be at a hockey game.

  234. I’ve tried. Lord knows I’ve tried. But … booooriiinnggg.

    Hell, they run NASCAR in Chicago, fer chrissakes.

    Ooooh … that would be interesting. Add snow and ice if you want to see some actual driving skills. Dry tracks are for pussies.

  239. O goody, sports blogging. You guys catch the curdled yak cheese chucking finals on the ocho?

  240. >> She posted a comment

    she?

  241. Another sport that I really am starting to love is college lacrosse. My daughter’s played but the girls version is really boring compared to the guys and the college stuff is really fun and competitive. Fast moving, physical, strategy and really good crowds, I was kind of surprised.

  242. Nope, doc, I switched the channel to “Tin Cup” after the dodgeball finale.

  243. Sort-of ‘she’.

  244. Surprised about the crowds. I know they have pros now but I don’t enjoy it as much.

  245. college lacrosse is rife with left wing lesbians who admire Palin.

  246. Best sporting event to watch in person? Collegiate or Olympic level 4×100 and 4×400 relays. It is awe inspiring to watch kids clock a sub 39 sprint relay or a sub 3:00 mile relay. Ive been to the texas relays a couple of times But it doesn’t translate to tv very well.

  247. Lacrosse is huge around here. HUGE.

    Good sport.

  248. see?

  249. I had a buddy who went to college in the northeast. He said the lacrosse players were readily identifiable by their lack of teeth.

  250. Lacrosse never caught on out here. It really isn’t played at any level that I know of.

  251. I like attending hockey, I like watching football and nascar, I like playing baseball.
    Basket ball? Soccer? Notsomuch

  252. Lacrosse and Rugby are picking up here in NM. Club level only at UNM though.

  253. I’m beginning to think mare can see through my bullshit now.

    dangit.

  254. osoloco!!!

    You’re now a veteran commenter. Welcome back!

  255. I have a buddy that was USMC Eagles Rugby team. However I never did rugby.

  256. Pelican!!!

  257. Vmax,
    Is rugby that sort of “fight, centered a football’?

  258. I Know Nothing!

  259. We had Rugby at the American school I attended overseas. My HS in Texas had a rodeo team.

  260. mimicking my best Sargent Shultz.

  261. osoloco,

  262. So……if I’m reading the brackets correctly, only ONE of Bammie’s picks for the Final Four has a chance at making it in, right?

  266. Hi Xbad
    Whazup!

  267. Taipei American School. 72-76

  268. Crazy Bear, where bouts did you go to HS in TX? Sounds like it must’ve been rural.

  269. My HS had a “crop judging” team. Now that’s some rural shit right there.

  270. Just a very “bleh” day. Cold and windy, and I felt a little puny, so I curled up with the poncho liner.

  271. Mesquite, TX. Here in NM it gets pretty rural too.

  272. osoloco is MCPO’s age.
    I gradumiated in 79.

    Taipei?
    Hummmm
    Cool

  273. Well, Mesquite ain’t too damned rural any more. I guess they still have a big rodeo there though. I grew up on a farm and had to jack with cattle my whole youth. At this point, I’m content to restrict my contact with them to my consumption of their corpse.

  274. 4th through 7th grades overseas. Graduated HS in TX. I didn’t know people outside of TX felt puny. Feel better Xbrad.

  275. Cal had some of the best rugby teams in the country over the last couple of decades. Emphasis on “had.”

    Thanks, Title IX!

    Yeah.

  286. There was some stupid thing on Facechimp a week or so ago about not filling up your car with gas on a certain day.

    So the sooper-geniuses that participated either filled up a day earlier or a day later.

  288. I own a lot in Deming, NM.
    I pay $7.00 a year in taxes!
    According to Google Earth it is a plated lot on a dirt road in the middle of no where.

    It must be very valuable! My Grandfather bought 4 lots on his way to Carlsbad Caverns in the 1920’s

    He paid $5.00 each for them
    His 4 grand kids inherited them.

    You are turning me off of the lacrosse studs.

  292. Yea!

  293. Deming is a place you drive through on the way to somewhere else. You’re being overcharged.

  294. Yay Mare! I have every light and all 3 TVs on.

  295. “Thanks, Title IX!”

    Honestly, I don’t know what to think about it. If having women’s sports has taken away men’s sports (which it has) I think it’s terrible. On the other hand, I enjoy women’s college sports also (except basketball…no particular reason, just don’t enjoy it). Of course, I want to see women play they sports they can compete in but……

    Really, had the stupid universities not paid those asshole teachers, aids and whatnots to teach women studies and minority studies we could have it all.

  296. Deming is a place you drive through on the way to somewhere else. You’re being overcharged.

    Yup!

    I would rather be in Albuquerque, or El Passo.

    Maybe Santa Fe? or 4 corners? Shiprock?

  297. Farmington!!!!

  298. >> Honestly, I don’t know what to think about it.

    Pretty simple, really. Let the market sort it out.

  299. I had several Navajo Hotties propose to me there!

    I wish I was younger and there!

  300. Calling it a night,
    dreaming of Navajo Hotties!

  301. “Pretty simple, really. Let the market sort it out.”

    I’m actually okay with that because the sport my daughter plays pays for itself. Not all schools can do that but lots of big ones and those that make it interesting.

    By the way, when my daughter’s team travels on out of league trips, it’s paid for by alumni.

  302. There are a lot of men’s sports that would be gone for sure, if attendance and concessions had to pay for them. I don’t want to see that either….if a school is smart, and the coach is smart and the alumni are smart they pay for the sport via donations and well placed plaque for well healed former players.

  303. I’m not sure “the market” is exactly the right way to describe the mechanism by which it should be sorted out.

    First, the market is skewed. Collegiate sports have a virtual monopoly- which means market forces don’t accurately reflect supply and demand.

    Also, which market? Are we talking about only supporting those sports that generate a profit or at least break even? Or are we saying that the desire to participate should be the demand signal we key from?

    I’m actually fairly supportive of some level of subsidy for team sports in the academic arena. I think team sports do a great deal to build character and help make for well rounded people (OK, not always in football and basketball….).

    But to actively punish certain male sports teams that enjoy a popular level of participation in order to promote female sport teams that have no participation is a bad idea.

  304. I don’t have a problem at all with a college choosing to aggregate revenues and expenses and having some popular sports support loss-leaders.

    It’s when the race/sex beancounters get involved that I get pissed. Doubly so when it’s the feds.

  305. No you missed nothing on the skip filling up w/gas day Andy. As our current high prices have absolutely nothing to do with OUR consumption, it was a meaningless gesture at best, but was more likely yet another clever way to spread malware to the accounts of FB participants who were dumb enough to click on the link.

  306. >> I’m actually fairly supportive of some level of subsidy for team sports in the academic arena.

    I think we’re saying the same thing.

  307. I’m actually fairly supportive of some level of subsidy for team sports in the academic arena. I think team sports do a great deal to build character and help make for well rounded people (OK, not always in football and basketball….).
    But to actively punish certain male sports teams that enjoy a popular level of participation in order to promote female sport teams that have no participation is a bad idea.

    I completely agree. But that’s what Title IX has done. But I don’t think some teams, schools, AD’s and school Presidents have been smart about using alumni, alumni, alumni, concessions and other means to make money. I’ve done it, so I know it can be done.

  308. Law of Unintended Consequences, straight up.

  309. Well, we’ve exhausted the entirety of my knowledge of collegiate sports…

    **looks at brackets**

    **still better than Obama**

  310. Agree, Andy…..but really, think of the horribly, nonsensical majors that are being “subsidized” by political correctness and taxpayer money. Really, there are millions of dollars to be had there.

    KISS MY ASS WOMEN STUDIES!!! What do you do with that degree besides be a grad level teacher?

  391. I wonder if PJ still gets royalties for her efforts in HP2PJJ?

    She rocks.

  392. It’s true. African Americans talk to the screen

    OH NO YOU DI’INT!!!

    Real dialogue from the row in front of me at an Oakland movie theater a decade ago:

    “Yeah, I’m watching ‘Face Off.’ It’s aw-rite. Yeah. It’s pretty cool. Word. Lates.”

  393. It should be noted that this was a cell phone conversation. The man making those remarks was rude, not necessarily crazy.

  394. Thatz some shit. What were you doing in Oakland? Hookin?

  395. SeanM, did you read this @ drudge?

    http://www.drudgereport.com/flash7.html

    Pretty shabby? or standard treatment of reporters?

  396. Talk to you tommorow with my typing.

    ch zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  397. Pretty shabby? or standard treatment of reporters?

    I usually get locked in a Port-A-Potty.

    (Of course, this has nothing to do with my job. It just happens.)

  398. Wakey wakey.

    Sean, I’m glad to see you made it out of the trunk.

  399. The only sport I have any history of watching with any regularity is football.

    I’ve enjoyed basketball, on occasion, and hockey.

    Baseball games are ok, but much better if you watch them at the park.

  400. Did Rosie give his report on the hotel?

    Must. know.

  401. He said it was okay. Only a few roaches and bedbugs.

  402. Did Rosie give his report on the hotel?

    Yup.

  403. huh? whut?

    I am out of coffee,

    Must. Go. Shopping.

    Can I pay someone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

  404. 7:39 min of awesome!
    She spanks the mufti’s ass and gives him a wedgie too.

  405. Come on, awesome hot chick spanking Muslim idiot cleric’s ass killed it?

  406. It’s been mostly dead all day.

  407. To be fair Andy, it is only 10 am, at least on the East Coast.

  408. To be open and honest, it died approximately 10 hours ago or maybe it was 14???

  409. KU and UK both play basketball again today. It will be an exciting afternoon.

  410. I don’t have any driving kids today … no hubby doc appointments … no picking up medical records …

    I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself.

  411. Taking the lady to the shooting range for a nice romantic afternoon. I’ll link some pictures later.

  412. Carin, have you heard about the NCAA basketball tournament?

  413. AARRRGGGG.

    Is that going to be going on all day?

    Well, I’ve got a good book to read.

    (sean’s recommendation from a few nights back)

  414. *Decides to shun Carin for at least the next 11 hours.*

  415. Last weekend, I was hoping to start cleaning up the yard- but I had no time. Today, I have the time, but there is that small problem of 6 inches of snow covering everything.

  416. I love this:

    Earth Hour celebrates ignorance, poverty and backwardness. By repudiating the greatest engine of liberation it becomes an hour devoted to anti-humanism. It encourages the sanctimonious gesture of turning off trivial appliances for a trivial amount of time, in deference to some ill-defined abstraction called “the Earth,” all the while hypocritically retaining the real benefits of continuous, reliable electricity. People who see virtue in doing without electricity should shut off their fridge, stove, microwave, computer, water heater, lights, TV and all other appliances for a month, not an hour. And pop down to the cardiac unit at the hospital and shut the power off there too.”

    Earth Hour: a dissent | Watts Up With That?

  417. I just now finished reading that. We’re like simpatico or something.

  418. Vmax, that was a great video. That part at the end where she was so heartfelt and wounded, I’m sitting here crying.

    It has got to be so difficult to be a woman and try to do anything in places like that.

  419. I don’t have any driving kids today … no hubby doc appointments … no picking up medical records …

    I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself.

    There’s still the matter of that handie that was under intense discussion here the other day……..

  420. …and also she bears no small resemblance to my little sister’s new MIL, who is also a very beautiful Pakistani woman. Those eyes!

  421. It was 7 min of pure awesome Laura

    Lil sis new MIL…*Ponders….can I hit on that?*

  422. Of course, Hotspur!

  423. What kind of hell must it be to live in a country with religious and governmental rulers who want women to live in the 12th century?

    And there she is, beautiful, smart and courageous trying to talk to a fanatical dope.

  424. She would shoot you down very politely, I’m sure. Probably used to it.

  425. I would call it a ‘no’ Vmax.

    Poor woman – I hope no violence comes to her as a result of that interview. No idea what people are ragging on her for, but knowing Islam’s threshold for outrage I don’t imagine it could be anything terribly scandalous. Here’s hoping she inspires a few more people (particularly women) to speak out.

    Also Mare – I know a LOT of people who do the whole ‘Earth Hour’ thing. Always has pissed me off. I usually turn on every appliance in the house if my roommates aren’t home (cause they’d get mad at me).

  426. You know, I can understand how – possibly – many, many centuries ago, men in the ME might have encouraged their wives and daughters to “cover up” for their protection. As beautiful as many women are in that part of the world, and as savage as conditions were back then, a burqa probably acted as a “fence” or a door – if a stranger didn’t know what a woman looked like under there, he was less likely to try and steal her away.

    As with all “good intentions”, however, it has come to be more of a prison than a protection. And because those cultures have continued to live by the rule of man, rather than the rule of law, they have never been able to live under the blanket of freedom that we too often take for granted.

    Unfortunately, that is something that we cannot “give” to them – they have to find it within themselves to fight for that liberty “for themselves and for their posterity”. Until enough people in that part of the world WANT that, we are just spinning our wheels.

  427. All the more reason to do it when they are home, Revvy.

  428. Mare, compounding her trouble is the deep inferiority complex of these Muslim countries. So fearful of showing the wrong face to the world; so humiliated that the show was in India instead of Pakistan.

    At the end there, you can tell that she has felt the weight of representing her country on her slim shoulders, and is hurt because she’s being chastised and told she isn’t good enough, by ignorant people who haven’t done shit with their lives but criticize others.

  429. “…by ignorant people who haven’t done shit with their lives but criticize others.”

    Amen, it was hard not to cry with her at the end, so I did.

  430. The handy’s still a no go. Things were attempted. Apparently there is still a tad bit too much soreness.

  431. Rush had a nice (similar) rant about Earth hour on friday.

  432. This POS poat is still alive?

    Come one, people!! We’ve got probably the greatest collection of witty, intelligent people one would find anywhere on the intertubes and no can come up with anything better than this stupid space-filler?

    I’m disappointed in each and every one of you.

  433. The handy’s still a no go. Things were attempted. Apparently there is still a tad bit too much soreness.

    Well, you don’t want to let those muscles atrophy, so …. c’mere.

  434. I am struck by the silence of my lefty friends who haven’t said shit about Ogabe’s little unilateral act of war. NOT.ONE.PEEP.

  435. Things were attempted.

    *giggles*

    I don’t know, just had this comic mental image of Carin trying some moves on a patient all wrapped up in bandages and in full traction, like in the movies.

  436. I pass the Federal building in downtown Ann Arbor on the way home every day. Back in the GWB days (sigh) it was full of protestors every Wednesday afternoon – FULL.

    Now you see a little handfull of grey bearded hippies, and chubby legged bull dykes, but that’s about it.

  437. “I’m disappointed in each and every one of you.”

    We are far too lazy to care.

  438. I’m just glad I’m not still in highschool. It seemed like every month there was some idiotic cause with a day devoted to it.

    Probably the most ludicrous was the ‘day of silence’ where kids would refuse to talk (yes, even to teachers) for the whole day to show ‘solidarity’ with the GLBT crowd. Or whatever their acronym is now. They seem to add a letter every couple of months.

  439. I’m disappointed in each and every one of you.

    I can live with that.

  440. I’m thinking they’ve got a new letter. Gender non-conforming.

    Yep. I knew there was a new one.

  441. ‘Sup, peeples?

  442. Is somebody putting up a post? Because I have a whole big bag of Lame here and do not mind sharing.

  443. I remember at one point passing a poster that was for something like GLBTTA – Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans-sexual, Trans-gender and Asexual. I just said ‘Okay, this is just getting silly.’

  444. Probably the most ludicrous was the ‘day of silence’ where kids would refuse to talk (yes, even to teachers) for the whole day to show ‘solidarity’ with the GLBT crowd.

    Hmmmm…

    Ya know what would really be an awesome display of solidarity? Do that for a whole year or two.

  445. Or whatever their acronym is now. They seem to add a letter every couple of months.

    Yeah, I heard they just added W – for Wiserbud.

  446. Yeah, I heard they just added W – for Wiserbud.

    And an “F.”

    For FABulous!!!

    *snap, snap, snap

  447. Lauraw, please put up your bag of lame.

  448. Wiser – It just pissed me off because
    a) Half of my friends bought into it so they wouldn’t talk to me for the whole day and
    b) It gave people a bullshit reason not to have to pay attention in class, because the teachers would actually get in trouble if they tried to get a student who was participating to answer a question.

  449. ok, gimme a few mins.

    *drags sack o’ crap out of attic*

  450. *drags sack o’ crap out of attic*

    I keep mine in the closet, it’s called, “my clothes.”

  451. I pass the Federal building in downtown Ann Arbor on the way home every day. Back in the GWB days (sigh) it was full of protestors every Wednesday afternoon – FULL.

    Target.Rich.Enviornment!!!!

  452. because the teachers would actually get in trouble if they tried to get a student who was participating to answer a question.

    Bzzzt! “You’re fired. And a douche. You are a fired douche.”

    Next?

  453. I am struck by the silence of my lefty friends who haven’t said shit about Ogabe’s little unilateral act of war. NOT.ONE.PEEP.

    I just watched Meet the Depressed and David McFucktard’s follow up to his question about consulting congress, after Hillary explained the process was, “Did Boehner ask any questions or have any reservations in those meetings.”

    He basically sucked her dick for 30 minutes.

  454. and Asexual.

    HEY! That’s GREAT!!! Sean is now a member of a special class!

    Seriously, do asexual people really get oppressed all that much? If I were asexual, I would be a little pissed to be included as part of a group that defines itself by it’s sexuality.

  455. DD#2 and I were talking about that in the car at Christmas – she is sick and tired of all of the “extra” letters that have been added to the whole LGBT acronym, as well as who they wish to “represent”.

    She KNEW they had gone too far when they started suggesting that they represent child molesters/pedophiles/sex offenders. She actually had to interject herself into the conversation at that point to say, “Really? REALLY? You honestly want to be associated with CRIMINALS now?”

    She was SHOCKED that some of the people in the group didn’t understand why that might be a bridge too far – they were so “in” to representing those who were being “oppressed”. She tried to explain to them that they (LGBT) were NOT oppressed – not in this day and age – but finally realized that they really and truly didn’t get it.

    That’s when she quit going to the meetings.

  456. He basically sucked her dick for 30 minutes.

    {{{{{{{{{{{{{{shudder}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

    thanks, MJ. I wanted to start losing weight anyway……

  457. That’s when she quit going to the meetings.

    I love TiF’s daughter.

  458. “Seriously, do asexual people really get oppressed all that much? If I were asexual, I would be a little pissed to be included as part of a group that defines itself by it’s sexuality.”

    I’m sick of everyone’s bitch fests. I’m too busy bitching here to care about how I label some stupid lesbo or as Hostspur charmingly put it, “chubby legged bull dykes.’

    HAHAHAHAHAHA

  459. MJ – Notice how the iWon has backed the jihadists in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya? Wonder if our intelligence services are so inept as not to know who was going to fill the power vacuum?

  460. You’d think with all the artsy types populating that group they’d come up with a catchy acronym.

  461. Wiser – That was my thought. I wondered how many ‘asexual’ people would truly associate themselves with a group that is ALL ABOUT forcing their form of sexuality on the world.

    TiFW – But Tina, sometimes they get BULLIED! And it hurts their widdle feewings. That’s oppression!!!!

  462. Notice how the iWon has backed the jihadists in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya? Wonder if our intelligence services are so inept as not to know who was going to fill the power vacuum?
    ———–
    Yes. They have stated that they know quite a bit about the dictators, but nothing about the opposition. They’re basically making up the policy on the fly, between vacation stops.

    “Look, can’t I just eat my pancakes.”

  463. *Teresa

    God I’m an idiot before 6 pm.

  464. faster poat up now.

  465. I love TiF’s daughter.
    Yeah, me too!

    TiFW – But Tina, sometimes they get BULLIED! And it hurts their widdle feewings. That’s oppression!!!!
    All I can say to that is, “Man up, cupcake.”
    Nerds get bullied, too. And short people.
    You get thrown into the deep end of the pool, you have 2 choices – most people choose to learn how to keep their head above water……

  466. She was SHOCKED that some of the people in the group didn’t understand why that might be a bridge too far

    That’s kinda always been the problem with propping up immorality on a flimsy foundation. Yaknow……it might have been rape, but it wasn’t rape rape comes to mind.
