In advance of tomorrow’s HHD…

I would like to summarize all of my fellow hostage brethren’s thoughts –
.

You are now free to move about the cabin.

[UPDATE:  wiserbud]

Considering this is probably the weakest effort anyone has ever put forward in creating a new poat here at the Hostages (nicely done, Gland), I feel it is perfectly fine to add this critical update.

We recently had a joke thread where we came up with the worst names for charities.  Leon won that thread, hands down, with his brilliant submission, Animosity International.  Seriously, that had me laughing for days afterwords.

At the time, I promised leon that I wold create a logo for that.  And as I am always one to keep my word, here it is:

In my mind, this is now the official Hostage logo.  In fact, if you are so inclined,  you can purchase shirts and other stuff with the logo on it here.

All profits to be used at the next meat-up towards the bar tab.

Now please, go forward and enjoy the rest of your day… you freaks

  1. Your pie hole, shut it.

  2. What kind of pie?

  3. I love this post. It’s deep and makes me think on levels I’ve never been challenged to think on before. It’s complicated and discussion worthy.

  4. I saw a video with Callista Gingrich on American Exceptionalism. I had never heard her speak before. She has a very nice voice and her demeanor was kind and relaxed. I don’t know how it will play out but she could be a real asset. I think she’s a lot more than the “other woman.”

    I can see now that the old wife was probably a binger and a harpie. Bitter and angry too evidently. Not good for a political life.

  5. Thank you Mare, and would you please show Cyn what kind of pie? And please stay in front of the webcam.

    *turns on secret webcam sharing button*

  6. I gave it a thumbs up for it’s message and contribution to the H2 Educational Series. This will be archived for sure.

  7. Little Johnny is in school taking a true-false test and he’s flipping a coin. At the end of the test, he’s flipping the coin again. The teacher asks, “what are you doing?”

    He says, “checking my answers.”

    And that is how babies are made.

  8. Happy Birthday VMax! Try not to do something stupid today. At your age, you should be more dignified.

  9. WTF is a ‘binger’.

  10. Oh, Happy Birthday Vman!

    I wish you all of your favorite things this year!

    Maybe a trip to the Keys?

  11. Thank you Cyn!

  12. Mmmmmmmmm Pie!

  13. Fred Thompson endorses Newt.

    Interesting.

  15. binge:

    a period or bout, usually brief, of excessive indulgence, as in eating, drinking alcoholic beverages, etc.; spree.

  16. I’m at “bargaining” right now.

    “Acceptance” is still a ways off. Rombley is a terrible candidate. Newt is awful, his negatives are as high as Palin’s. Great, we’re gonna nominate a thoughly hated Republican to go up against a somewhat despised incumbent.

    Ron Paul is a crank. Santorum can’t win in his own Philadelphia-driven crazy home state. Perry was fumbly, badly unprepared and hopped up on pain meds. Bachmann had the bug-eye and retard-juice nonsense, she was a fighter who never won a damned thing. Cain touched too many boobies, (which up until now I didn’t know that was even possible to do). I forget the rest of them.

    Nature abhors a vacuum and that’s what GWB left us, a leadership vacuum. John McCain? Mike Huckabee? Gawd.

    The potential stars? They all took a pass. Daniels, Ryan, Pence, Christie (although I’m not a fan of the fat man as a conservative, he is popular as shit). Sanford doesn’t since he only cheated on one wife.

    What a mess.

  17. Haha. Mark Halperin is here. What a douche.

  18. Pup, did your binge last night make you cranky?

  19. Happy Birthday vmax!

    And nice writeup in Morning Jolt, laura! (I know roamy saw it first, just congratulating lauraw!)

  20. Happy Birthday Vmax. I got you one of these:

    No, not cranky. I was reading ‘bing’ not binge.

    Happy Birthday to you sir.

  24. “Hug?”

    HA! Accepted!

  25. hyper-critical vulture capital update added!!

  26. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, V-MAN!!

  27. Dave, I’ve got an article for you – The GOP Deserves to Lose. Read it and weep.

    Finally, there are the men not in the field: Mitch Daniels, Paul Ryan, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Haley Barbour. This was the GOP A-Team, the guys who should have showed up to the first debate but didn’t because running for president is hard and the spouses were reluctant. Nothing commends them for it. If this election is as important as they all say it is, they had a duty to step up. Abraham Lincoln did not shy from the contest of 1860 because of Mary Todd. If Mr. Obama wins in November—or, rather, when he does—the failure will lie as heavily on their shoulders as it will with the nominee

    .

  28. Brillant again, Wiser!

    Excellent!

  29. I forgot about Bush and Barbour.

    We fight stupid.

  30. Ha ha ha … good job Douchebag Wiser!!

    *awards Wiser 10000 Nobels.

  31. I’v thought about it that way too, Carin. This truly is an important election. I’m not too sure about the guys mentioned in that paragraph but there are sure others I would have liked to see sacrifice for the Country. Pence, I’m looking at you.

  32. Excellent logo wiserbud.

    It would make a good album cover (SWIDT?)

  33. Bush is NOT the answer. Do. Not. Want. He’s one of those we would think is great at first and then we’d continually say, “wtf?”

  34. wiser, that logo would look great reversed in color, on a dark polo. Or as is on a light one. Is there options on cafe press, or do you just get what they give you?

  35. It would make a good album cover (SWIDT?)

    HAHAHA!!!!

    yes. Yes I did.

  36. Is there options on cafe press, or do you just get what they give you?

    They basically take what they are given and place it on things. No other options that I know of

  37. I’m not making the case for Jeb Bush the nominee, I’m saying people who are ostensibly leaders in the GOP at that level shoulda stepped up.

    I think Perry did it even though he knew he wasn’t ready because he saw what a mess it was.

    We are left with a weaker-than-McLame Mitt and an out-of-fuckin-nowhere it’s Newt “the left’s 16 year Punching Bag Emeritis”.

    Or Uncle Crazy but that ain’t happenin.

  38. Ghee, I went in and adjusted the size of your picture – this old lady couldn’t see it…..

  39. We MUST get rid of Obama and repeal Obamacare:

    http://lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=661984

  40. Hopefully, Perry will regroup and come out swinging in another election year. Because, yes – I DO think that he will make a great President.

    But what decent person wants to run for that office, knowing that every misstep they have made will be used (viciously, I might add) against them?

  41. “I’m saying people who are ostensibly leaders in the GOP at that level shoulda stepped up.”

    Absolutely agree.

  42. Only if he were a Veep on Newt’s ticket, if Newt won. That ain’t happenin with Mitt. Given Perry’s awful campaign, if I’m Newt I see Perry as a liability.

  43. morning trese, hows thangs in TX?

  44. A brokered convention…..please NOT Mitch Daniels.

  45. Great links, Car in and mare!

  46. I think Newt could go a long way with conservatives based on his VP pick. He should start sending signals out early on this one.

  47. I wonder if MJ has rushed Newt’s podium yet?

  48. Going to workout.

    Would you all please solve this election problem by the time I return?

    Thanks in advance.

    Wiser……great logo!

  49. Wiser, you complete me.

  50. Thanks for making it bigger Tif!

  51. Wiser, you complete me.

    You had me at “HEY, GET THE FUCK OFF OF ME, YOU FUCKING LUNATIC!!!”

  52. Considering this is probably the weakest effort anyone has ever put forward in creating a new poat here at the Hostages

    – – – – –

    Just as Mrs. Wiser said to Mr. Wiser on their honeymoon, “I’d like to see you come up with something better with that 5 seconds you just spent working on that!”.

    *prints 100 t-shirts with that cool logo and shoots them into the crowd!*

  53. Yea, I wasn’t necessarily endorsing those suggesting in that WSJ article. merely the sentiment. There were many other men, good conservatives, who could have/should have stepped up.

  54. Indeed Car in, unfortunately the asshat factor kicks in and we get the Bob Dole nonsense

  55. Would you all please solve this election problem by the time I return?

    No plobrem, rady. Here, you make man take this rittle brue pill and election plobrem go away fast.

  56. Just as Mrs. Wiser said to Mr. Wiser on their honeymoon,

    5 seconds?

    yeah… right..

    what do I look like, some kind of Superman?

  57. Humn.

    The charter school, which serves students mostly of Middle Eastern descent, was taking a 47-6 drubbing at the hands of Westland Lutheran and tempers flared. As Westland’s quarterback was taking a knee to run out the clock, Star players burst through the offensive line and threw him to the ground. The impact, according to published reports, ultimately sent him to the hospital with a grade-three concussion.

    The kids are being charged with misdemeanor assault. The local whiners – NAACP, CAIR-Michigan, and teh “arab civil rights league” are crying racism.

  58. 5 seconds plus begging?

  59. And while I’m wasting my time making dumbass logos, Lauraw is getting herself quoted all over the place with her brilliant piece at Ace’s..

    I really need to take a step back and examine my life…..

  60. Grade three are the most serious. This type of concussion involves unconsciousness and lasting presence of the aforementioned symptoms. Treatment and observation are required immediately as a Grade 3 concussion can signal mild brain damage or even brief comas. The effects of a Grade 3 concussion can last for weeks.

  61. 5 seconds plus begging?

    If I’m really lucky, I can last as long as a cab ride in Boston…

  62. I really need to take a step back and examine my life…..

    Yea, you really should be kissing up to Lauraw. I think we should all just try to glom onto her brilliance.

  63. I really need to take a step back and examine my life…..

    – – – – –

    we already did that for you, its actually better that you just look away. Trust us!

  64. I’m just gonna drop her name a lot today everywhere. Play up the fact that she was my room mate in st louis. People will assume that I’m as bright as she.

    win/win

  65. Car in, I can’t get your link to open. Is it something I said?!

  66. If the QB was taking a knee, those students need to spend time in jail. That’s the equivalent of shooting an unarmed man in the back.

  67. Car in, I can’t get your link to open. Is it something I said?!

    HTML is hard

  68. I feel like watching this process for the Rep. nominee is like watching a train wreck and I am quite sure that the dems feel the same way and are laughing their President right back into office. I am angry and disgusted. All this talk of what if’s makes me think of a girl in high school who gets asked to the prom. She doesn’t really like her date but she damn sure is going to the dance and isn’t sitting home crying her eyes out.

  69. Considering this is probably the weakest effort anyone has ever put forward in creating a new poat here at the Hostages

    I’m offended.

  70. I’m just gonna drop her name a lot today everywhere. Play up the fact that she was my room mate in st louis

    She has gotten drunk at my house. Numerous times……

  71. GMLand, I think this is the article Car in is referring to:

    where is she getting quoted? I wanna see

  73. I’m offended.

    Then my work here is done….

  74. She has gotten drunk at my house. Numerous times……

    drunk? Or roofie induced unconsciousness?

  75. its actually better that you just look away.

    but… it’s like looking at a train wreck.

    You try, but you just can’t look away…..

  76. drunk? Or roofie induced unconsciousness?

    Oh no. You ain’t gonna get me to admit nuthin’

  77. where is she getting quoted?

    You get the Morning Jolt?

    And I’m not talking about what you do to yourself in the shower….

  78. We are left with a weaker-than-McLame Mitt and an out-of-fuckin-nowhere it’s Newt “the left’s 16 year Punching Bag Emeritis”.

    YES! Gawd I’ve missed you guys.

  79. And I’m not talking about what you do to yourself in the shower….

    I thought you weren’t admitting to anything about rufies?

    how the hell are those spelled anyways?

  80. If Mr. Obama wins in November—or, rather, when he does—the failure will lie as heavily on their shoulders as it will with the nominee

    I would like to say to that author….f*ck you. Nice attitude. Everyone bend over, hoist your skirts, and concede now. Why bother.

    We get what we get, the question is, how hard are you willing to work to get SCOAMF out of office? Barry’s commie background sucky record wherever he’s been compared to even Uncle Crazy? No comparision. My pig’s turd is cleaner than Barry.

  81. Hahaha, lauraw’s article was posted at FreeRepublic, and people are wondering what some of the acronyms are (MBM). The morons have their own language, don’t they?

    I hope they don’t start reviewing some of the more colorful ones.

  82. well said, beasn, well said!

    /subscribes to President beasn’s newsletter

  83. You get the Morning Jolt?

    Ok. I do now.

  84. I don’t know what MBM means either.

  85. Well put, beasn. As I read the comments on this post about our candidates, I was made to believe the MSM/DNC’s spin machine has done a great job in their strategy to tell us what we believe. I for one will not take their bait.

  86. Plus, it doesn’t matter who goes up against the commie masses, our side always seems to shoot themselves in the foot over their quest for the perfect candidate. See that Christine chick who somehow was worse than the dem ‘tard…….

    At least the democrats ALL circle the wagons once their candidate is a nominee.

  87. What does MBM stand for?

    *puts on dunce cap*

  88. MBM = Make Believe Media

    I just thought it was funny that aceisms had crept into that piece, and now people are analyzing it.

  89. make believe media

  90. Thanks for putting that link inJ’ames. I’m organizing drawers.

    *shudders.

  91. ahhhhh, thanks, guys.

    Sorry pupster. I’m not around as much any more so I miss all the fun stuff.

    Ok. off to work.

  92. I’m organizing drawers.

    You’re sorting laundry again?

  93. I would like to say to that author….f*ck you. Nice attitude. Everyone bend over, hoist your skirts, and concede now. Why bother.

    We get what we get, the question is, h

    I think he was voicing a very real concern about the upcoming election. The idea that we need to get behind Romeny, because he’s the “most electable” – is just … Honestly, how about we got a GOOD CANDIDATE that was electable because we LIKED HIM????

    It’s really fucking cynical that we’re supposed to line up and vote, because – you know – fuck it, it’s the best we can do.

    And, I’m not directing this at anyone here. And, I have argued with folks that given the choice, we HAVE to vote for him. HAVE to.

    Doesn’t mean I have to be one bit happy about it.

    AND – go go on – this really spells DOOM. I can’t pretend that I don’t feel this way, and everyone – Ann Coulter – needs to realize that “her man” is in big trouble when so many of us feel this way.

  94. I ordered an oversize coffee mug and a medium golf shirt.

    Back to work.

  95. I’m organizing drawers.

    You’re sorting laundry agai

    I wish. No I’m tackling a few of those “catch all” drawers. ugh. what do I do with all that crap?

  96. I’ll vote for the nominee, I’ll even send them money. But, until the convention or he drops out, I’m supporting Rick Santorum.

  97. I ordered an oversize coffee mug and a medium golf shirt.

    SWEET!!!

    I’m planning to buy a coffee mug myself.

  98. I thought Santorum probably had his best debate performance last night, MCPO.

  99. Callista is kinda hot.

  100. Did you have her sign anything for you MJ, or just The Newt?

  101. Best update evah, wiser and wiserbud!

  102. AND – go go on – this really spells DOOM. I can’t pretend that I don’t feel this way,

    And that is why I responded the way I did. I see what Barry is doing and I am losing sleep. I hate the feeling and it gets worse to the point of feeling sick when I see people saying he is going to win while they tear up our own side. What candidate ever has been perfect?

    Did Reagan have negatives? If Kennedy (only mention him as some people think he was royalty) were alive and running today, would he survive the scrutiny?

  103. Best update evah, wiser and wiserbud!

    *blush

  104. He was late, so they didn’t to the rope line, although I hustled onto it. Oh, well. It was good to take the measure of the speech and his arguments.

  105. That is my point exactly Beasn. Even when people we deem “perfect” jump in they sometimes fail to disappoint i.e. Fred Thompson and Rick Perry. The bottom line is we cannot have 4 more years of this. I can already see how ugly it is getting out there. I basically called a woman on fb an idiot last night and dumped her off my friends’ list.

  106. Thank you all for the birthday wishes.

    I think as pointed out above is we have people with giant egos that want to be president and will say and do anything to be elected including compromising their values to do so. Forget about overselling conservative credentials.

    What we need is someone who does not want to be president. Perhaps we can get that in a brokered convention. That could be a good thing.

    If we concentrate on getting Tea Party activists as delegates. If Laup Nor has not stacked the delegates in his favor.

  107. No rope line?! An outrage! I hope you asked for your money back.

  108. I watched Count have a near panic attack the other day when we were discussing 4 more years….

  109. Callista may be hot, but is she as hot as Sarah Palin, just a few rows back?

  110. Happy B-day, V.

  111. Callista may be hot, but is she as hot as Sarah Palin, just a few rows back?
    ————————–
    Uh, yes. She is. I was actually surprised at how pretty she was, and I don’t really go for blondes (its a rule, don’t ask).

  112. Happy Birthday Vman!!!!!!!!!

  113. Robomneycare scares me. Romney implemented and supports it. He can’t even freaking defend himself regarding how he makes his money.

    Newt’s wives don’t scare me. He wasn’t doing that while in the Oval office or on the line with commanders in the field. He has said he supports stupid things – gorebull warming- but didn’t implement them and has walked back on them to the point of his ass will be fried if he does it again. He was around when a budget was somewhat balanced and welfare was reformed.

  114. Nice, MJ! Thanks for the updates!

    Here’s the Palin pics, in case anyone wanted to look:

    https://picasaweb.google.com/102575049587922890650/PalinRally

  115. This kind of sums it up for me:

    ‎”What’s going on here is the conservative base trying to send a message to the Republican establishment: “You’re gonna have to have somebody who’s legitimately conservative. That’s the only way we’re gonna be passionately behind our nominee, and that’s the only way we’re gonna beat Obama.” This is something really big. This is not the voters saying, “We love Newt! Newt’s the only guy!” That’s not what’s going on here. Newt’s a vessel right now, and Newt would be wise to understand that, too.”—
    Rush Limbaugh

  117. Logo Golf shirt ordered.

  118. nice one, CB.

    I saw an Obama campaign ad during the debate, and again this morning. This passage made me think of it:

    2) In 2010 you said Solyndra, which gave your campaign a lot of money, was “leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future.” Today, Solyndra is bankrupt and the taxpayers lost $500 million on loans that your administration was well aware might never be paid off when you made them. What do you say to people who say this is evidence of corruption in your administration?

    In the ad, they claimed 2.7 million jobs have been created by the Green Energy program, and that the Solyndra claims were not based in truth. So, they are going to run on that.

    Let me know how that works out for ya. And we’re pissed at Gingrich why?

  119. Happy Birthday, Vman!

  120. Bwahahahahahahahaha! Stupid terrorists!

  121. And red boy shorts ordered. Hawt!

  122. Here’s the Palin pics, in case anyone wanted to look:

    Heh; I opened up a pic of Palin and Google+ just asked me if it could tag it as me.

  123. I am not raising a concern for the “perfect candidate”.

    I’m raising the alarm that we have to win, and these guys suck, and may well get beaten because they suck.

    Is it just me or are RP supporters starting to sound more and more like libtards with all their platitudes. This is what some dude just told me on a ‘fuck republicans r.p. or death thread”:

  139. Cool logo, wiser. A nice, big, actually readable version of it would look good on, oh I dunno, a regular white T-shirt.

    Just a suggestion.

    PJM?

  143. You’re gonna love this one (seriously – take the time to read it!):

    Romney does not appear to think about issues in terms of political positions, only in problem solving terms. And that’s not nearly as good as it sounds. What it means is that if voters want gay rights, then he will fight for gay rights. If global warming seems to be a concern, then he will work out a way to reduce carbon emissions without impacting business too much. If guns are an issue, then he will work together with gun control and gun rights advocates to draw up another compromise which may undermine the Second Amendment, but does solve the “problem”

    *****
    …they might be right. Romney might be the most electable of the bunch. Maybe he is the only one who can win. Most of us have had thoughts like that, but even if we have to settle for the Prius of politicians, voters are still interested in test driving something big and mean which spews up a lot of smoke and scares everyone off the street. Or maybe a classic model which might look silly today but reminds us of the America that used to be, the America of the sweater vest, the traditional family and the pipe, rather than the America where we settle for the Prius and try to make it to the cash register without having to hear another Lady Gaga song.

  144. How many more of these stories aren’t being told?

    The better question is: How many of these stories are being passed off like that one is?

  145. Really? I kilt i…..

    Oh, right.
    Tuesday.

  146. Ann Coulter will NEVER win the Winston Churchill award for bravery, calm leadership and inspiration during a time of war.

    It’s when things seem the most bleak that we (as conservatives) must, must, continue to rally, support and fight for the Country and the candidate that ultimately gets nominated.

    And I feel in no way overly dramatic. Obama HAS to go. Socialist creep will kill us.

  147. Cool logo, wiser. A nice, big, actually readable version of it would look good on, oh I dunno, a regular white T-shirt.

    Do you know how to enlarge a jpeg without it getting fuzzy?

  148. So, Ace is all in for Romney?

  149. Do you know how to enlarge a jpeg without it getting fuzzy?

    Try using one of those computer programs that enhances a photo through typing stuff on your keyboard. You know, like the ones that the cops use on teevee to get a license plate from a picture of a speeding car?

  150. “Comment by Cyn on January 24, 2012 11:48 am

    Oh I think she should get them too, Carin. We’ll do a pic with the three of us.”

    PROFIT!!!

  151. Found the elusive G-Spot

  152. Just remember, boys and girls, there is no “party elite” deciding who the GOP candidate is going to be:

    “I talked to a top Romney adviser tonight who said, ‘Look, if Mitt Romney cannot win in Florida then we’re going to have to try to reinvent the smoke-filled room which has been democratized by all these primaries….”

    Great.

    The GOP “elites” hate democracy…..

  164. I don’t have a smart phone, Dunn; sorry.

  165. WPDunn, I don’t have a smart phone, so I’m not the go-to guy, but there’s been some interesting military apps devised.

    There’s one where you simply point the phone at a target, and it generates a call for fire for either artillery or an airstrike. Another app works in a similar fashion. You point the phone at a landmark, and it taps into a database, and tells you all intel gathered at that location, such as an informant, if there’s been an IED emplaced there, how many times US troops have visited, etc.

  166. cynnie, you dont need a smartphone you am one (lol)
    Xbrad, sounds interesting but doubt i could get my hands on the Intel one

  167. Those work great, J’ames.

Almost everyone at some point goes in, so if you’ve made a comment but it doesn’t show up, ask someone to see if you’re in the bucket.

  185. Lemme get this straight:

    The Keystone XL pipeline deal was nixed because of concerns that it might endanger some obscure wetlands, right?

    And yet, Warren Buffett is offering to let the oil ride on his choo-choos, and the Obama administration is just fine with that: http://is.gd/fLbBfF

    Now, wouldn’t the carbon emissions from the choo-choos contribute to Global Warming?
    Or is that just a “bad thing” when Republicans are doing it?
    Won’t the trains have to run lots of times? There AND back? Over and over and over?
    Won’t that end up polluting the environment a WHOLE LOT MORE than a static pipeline?

    It is HARD work to be a liberal……

  186. I hadn’t heard that TIFW. It that legit? The other critically important varriables are that it’s much much harder to puncture a stationary, mostly burried, pipeline than it is to puncture a mobile, above ground pipeline (tanker train) that is crossing hundreds of roadways. Not to mention that it is prohibitively expensive to ship something by rail that can be shipped by pipeline…….which is why the civilized world is literally spiderwebbed with gas and oil pipelines. Only a country full of satisfied illiterates would buy into this bullshit. Wait….

  187. it is actually very easy to be a liberal, start with a conservative then strip out common sense, historical knowledge, add greed and moral relevance then top it off with a enlarged sense of self importance

  188. PG, Burlington Northern is a Warren Buffet company. Does that tell you anything?

    Also, wasn’t Warren Buffet one of the major characters in Atlas Shrugged? If he wasn’t, he damned sure should’ve been.

  206. In doing research on the Engineers in World War II, I was surprised to learn just how little pipeline infrastructure there was in the US up to that time.

    The Quartermaster Corps plan to deliver fuel to the forces ashore in France and Germany was to send it forward via rail road tank cars, then pump it into 5 gallon cans for final delivery.

    The only problem with that was the AAF and RAF had spent the last four years bombing the everlovin’ shit out of the French rail system and shooting holes into every piece of rolling stock they could find on the continent, especially tank cars.

    The Engineers instead devised a 4″ pipeline that could be installed at the rate of about 10 miles a day. They formed petroleum pipeline battalions, by drafting every pipeline worker in the US. Turns out, there weren’t nearly enough. They had only a handful of skilled people in each battalion, and the rest were “fillers” that had to pick up the trade through on-the-job training.

  207. Buffet and Soros – The USA would be much better off without them.

    Tell them if they are correct, you’re just going to have to sell all of their stuff and drop them off with the Occupy Detroit crowd.

    I think they all went home?

  351. I like the cheetos puffs

    Mitt Says in his jobs plan taken from his web site.
    “The approach taken by Bowles Simpson Commission is a good starting point for the discussion. The goal should be a simpler, more efficient, user friendly less onerous tax system.”

    So we start with the recommendations from a Obama commission?

    NEWSFLASH MITT! You are a Republican. Starting with the most far left president in American history is a HUGE FAIL! in my book.

  352. OK, I found the recipe:

    Dave’s Afterburner Chili

    From memory (I have patented this over many many years).Ok, 2 lbs ground beef or chili beef.
    2 cans pinto beans (or your fav. I’m not picky)
    4 cloves of garlic, diced eensy teensy (do it yourself! you will thank me again and again!)
    half a sweet onion, diced not quite so fine. You want to chew these little goobers.
    5 tbsp chili powder
    1 tbsp paprika
    1 tsp salt (to taste, I like a little less salt)
    1 tsp white pepper
    1 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp cayenne
    1 tsp ground cumin (I recommend fresh. mmm!)
    1/2 tsp
    Tabasco. God bless General McIlhenny. Did you know he was a Marine? OOO-RAY!
    1 jalapeno pepper, diced so fine you can’t tell what it was
    1 habanero pepper, after filling out the forms from the EPA for handling toxic waste. diced similarly to Mr. Jalapeno. Imagine a cute Veggie Tale face. And cut it off.
    4 cans agua (water, you silly caucasians)
    1 tbsp masa flour
    3 oz. Maker’s Mark (yeah, you could use Jim Beam. But call it your recipe, not mine)

    The ground beef should be “chuck”. Not the neighbor’s kid, ground chuck. Small “c”. 15% fat. Don’t drain a drop of it. That grease enhances the “Dave experience”. Brown that beef. Pour those beans. Pour in all that other stuff. Mix and simmer according to common sense rules of mixing and simmering. You’ve done this before…I have no secrets here. Except the masa….save it until you’ve simmered for about 45 minutes, then mix that in some hot water and pour it into the brew. Drink 4 Foster’s while you do all this, and down one shot of the whiskey. It’s just more fun that way. It also enhances the “Dave experience”. Simmer another half hour or so or until you just can’t stand it anymore and eat the stuff.

    Grated cheddar, chips, fresh diced onions, that just enhances the “Dave’s Chili” experience. Knock yourself out. Tomorrow morning, have a bowl of ice cream handy, your favorite flavor. Not to eat. To sit in. Enjoy.

  353. Thanks Michael!

  354. Sounds like a phaelenopsis. They’ll often spike twice. In fact, with a phaelenopsis, you can encourage it to spike twice by nipping the first spike off just above the first nub before all of the blossoms die off.

    Don’t worry if it takes two years for your new plants though. That’s pretty common with immature plants.

  355. BTW, having tried Dave’s Afterburner Chili recipe, I cannot in good faith endorse it. I am merely posting it here as a public service announcement.

  356. Good Lord, MJ, don’t actually make that shit. Dave posted it as a joke, and I fell for it.

  357. Sounds like a phaelenopsis.

    That sounds like something that needs an ointment. And a pill or two.

  358. Aggie, Pure Genius on your poat AND the pic (WINK)

    HA! *smooch*

  359. *Looks left

    *Looks right

    *Rubs phalaenopsis on MJ’s doorknob

  360. MJ,

    http://www.wolfbrandchili.com/index.jsp

  361. ^ add crushed cheetos

  362. ^ FTW

  363. If you removed the seeds and membranes from the habanero that is a chili I have made. It is not too hot. Leave them in OTH? Fire extinguisher in the bathroom is mandatory.

  364. I fucking hate the 45% of “Americans” that think Obama is doing a good job. Stupid fuckers!

  365. Happy birthday, Vmax!

  366. Our cable, phone, and Internet are out, and my cell phone is spotty. And for some reason, the comment box is at the top on my CP, and I don’t know how to refresh on this darn thing…..

  367. MJ, you need to go over to IB and ask Retired Geezer for his chili recipe, which is unusual and has actually won awards.

  368. MCPO, eggplant parmesan is tasty. You done good with that recommendation.

    Although I did use bacon grease instead of olive oil and asiago instead of parmesan.

  369. DO NOT USE DAVE’S RECIPE.

    It is a fake. The Michaels fell for it and it is uneatable.

  370. Everyone hates Cheetos? That’s not an argument.

    Puffy or Crunchy. Now THAT’S a Cheetos argument!

  371. Also, Slublog posted a real good joke thread at AOSHQ.

  372. Alton Brown’s is really good. Don’t use good salsa, from the esoteric isle. Use the Pace. Plain old red pace. And use lager, not a dark beer. Dark makes it too bitter. A little sugar also helps with the balance.

  373. Let me belatedly pile on the praise for lauraw for the mention on Morning Jolt…I know you’re probably tired of hearing it!

  374. Jay, whenever I use a lot of spices in a soup or stew recipe, I usually add just a teaspoon of sugar (brown sugar if it’s a brown sauce or soup) to a whole giant pot and it really makes a difference in how you perceive the spice. Doesn’t add sweetness, but like you said, just balances everything beautifully.

  375. A little sugar also helps with the balance.

    *Gives J’Ames the stink-eye

    Are you one of those assholes who puts mint flavored chili on a plate of spaghetti?

  376. Thank you Jimbro and everybody! Thank you! You are all so very kind. Really. I can’t even stand it.

    *crawls back into the calm dark closet and lies upon the shoes and breathes dust for a while*

    You have to stop. Please.

  377. Also, Slublog posted a real good joke thread at AOSHQ.

    I’m crying these are hilarious!

  378. Anyone make chili without beans? Is that a chili sin?

    *Gawd, I’m such a yankee*

  379. OMG! Must have…..

  380. Thanks Romy and Sohos.

    I flunked the eye test when renewing my drivers license today. Now I have to go to the eye doc and have him say I can drive with 1 eye. Or just walk.

  381. Chili without beans is a Texas thing. I think midwesterners use cinnamon. I remember a chili war about that. Cathy was part of it. I don’t cook and we have chile not chili out here.

  382. >> It is a fake. The Michaels fell for it and it is uneatable.

    shhhhhhh

    *hee hee hee*

  383. Jewstin, Jewstin, Jewstin. Even The Hump™ believe in Sugar Theory.

  384. I don’t cook
    WTF?!

  385. Beans suck.

  386. Sugar Theory

    like just a leetle bit of salt in a sweet recipe. .

  387. MCPO, I don’t even make sammiches.

  388. I’d like to ask for prayers please. It seems that some of the H2 family has to do something they really shouldn’t have to, and I’m sure they don’t have to. They will have multiple therapy sessions ahead of them, to recover from the procedure.

    Please pray for …

    The AOS cobloggers. They have to live blog the last SOTU from Teh One tonight.

    And by multiple therapy sessions, I of course mean drinks.

  389. Jew, a tiny bit of sugar in a huge pot of stew behaves like another spice, or a flavor brightener like salt, not a sweetener. It kind of bridges the flavors and the other spices taste better.

  390. It’s SOSTFU night! I’m going to #OccupyBeerCan and not listen to the guy in pancake make-up on stage.

  391. But, but, but, the Drinking Bingo games, Jew!

  392. Oso. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ou6wsfxSXqk

  393. J’Ames and Laura, I’ll take your word for it. But if I hear tell of you putting pineapple on a ham I’m going to cut Xbrad soooo hard.

  394. Scott – Good one. I like that they included all that MILFy goodness with each meal!

  395. Laura’s hump is iridescent when it blushes.

  396. I would just like to mention that the tagline goes perfect with the header. Nice work, Andy.

  397. Scott, I had that exact Snackable for lunch! 43 grams of carbs in the Turkey Cheese Oreo combo. We were out of the ham and cheese. My hubby is making tamales and posole for dinner.

  398. I’m ignoring you, wiserballgobbler.

  399. I’m ignoring you, wiserballgobbler.

    Oh, giving me the silent treatment, are you?

    Well, two can play at that game, mister…..

  400. I would say well done, Wiser, but since this is Animosity International HQ, I will instead say, ‘FUCK YOU AND YOUR TIT DIRT!’

  401. My mom always puts pineapple and whole clove spikes on ham, Jewstin. The pineapple juice goes in the pan to steam and make gravy. Delicious.

    No maraschino cherries, though, that’s a one way ticket to Grodytown.

    I suspect you may be retarded in a culinary sense. It’s sad.

    *single tear rolls down cheek

  402. Go Patriants!

  403. Culinary sense? He eats tongue and pig face.

  404. I use the clove spikes – never tried the pineapple.

  405. He eats tongue and pig face.

    Like you’ve never eaten a hot dog.

  406. Lauraw, my favorite pizza is green chile, pineapple, and pepperoni. I was always taught to put sugar in my sauce when making an homemade red. I usually tuned out the why because I had no intention of ever cooking.

  407. MCPO, the pineapple clove combo is really good.

  408. I suspect you may be retarded in a culinary sense

    *Skins beef tongue

    *Gnaws broccoli stem

    *Slurps crawdad juice

    I beg to differ.

  409. Did anybody eat anybody else’s last slice of pizza today?

  410. Lauraw, do you really have to watch the SOTU? *shudders*

  411. It smells *funny* in here.

  412. I missed that one by just a few days, Sean.

  413. pineapple tastes different when you cook it. There is a joint in Waco called Poppa Rollos that makes the best damn canadian bacon and pineapple pizza ever.

  414. Grilled pineapple is great.

  415. Poppa Rollos

    Agreed. Their pineapple and canadian bacon pizza is the shizznet.

  416. Smells are never funny.

    They can be a lot of things, but funny isn’t one of them.

  417. I add green chile or jalapeños to everything. Red chile goes in all tomato based recipes. Green or jalapeño in all poultry recipes. My hubby makes a really good pineapple pork chop chili. Goes great with jalapeño cornbread.

  418. They can be a lot of things, but funny isn’t one of them.

    Clowns smell funny.

  419. I would just like to remind everyone…..

  420. I add green chile or jalapeños to everything. Red chile goes in all tomato based recipes. Green or jalapeño in all poultry recipes.

    Run away with me, osita.

  421. Pineapple on pizza?! Exactly what sort of heathens are you?

  422. A burning clown would smell even funnier.

  423. Welcome to H2: Food Blogging since March 2009

  424. There is an art to cooking with peppers wearing nothing but an emerald green butt thong.

  425. Jew, pineapple on pizza with a chile of some sort is awesome. Grilled pineapple with habanero or jalapeño is yummy too.

    ———————————————
    Suicide is now an option

  427. Can we lose Pat the Patriot? Almost as bad as Kerry whatever. Just sayin’

  428. Habenero with Pineapple, mmm. Habeneros have a sweet taste.

    Once you get past the flamethrower effect.

  429. Pat always looks constipated to me.

  430. There is an art to cooking with peppers wearing nothing but an emerald green butt thong.

    By all that is holy, please let there be no video.

  431. Hope your Longhorns go down tonight, Dave. Even though I can’t watch it, cuz of the stupid Longhorn Network.

  432. Pat always looks constipated to me.

    THAT’S what smells funny in here. Oh, and that green butt thong thing.

    {{shudders}}

  433. I hate the new “John Kerry” profile that they replaced Pat with even more…

  434. The Header… it… I… the… I actually have no words.

  435. Oso – Since you failed to comment on the Giants logo that has been up there since Sunday, may I conclude that you will be rooting for NYC?

  436. Speaking of butt thongs. . . I kind of want that ringer Tee, but the thong is tempting too.

  437. *looks at header*

    o_O

  438. Whoa. Speaking of butt thongs. . . The guy in the header picshure ain’t wearing one.

  439. As much as it pained me, i kinda zoomed, Jew, and I think he’s wearing dark colored ones. Apparently he’s not heard of the shade of nude. Gah.

  440. Cyn, doing the jobs Americans won’t do!

  441. MCPO, I hate the Cheatriots more than the Gints. Kind of the same way that I root for the Evil Empire (Yankees) before the BooSox. Did you see that the Fenway Centennial is a Yankee/BooSox matchup?

  442. But the guy standing extremely close behind him is sporting a green butt thong

  443. I heard the word “jobs”… DRINK!

  444. So if that’s a guy in the header…why is he wearing a bra? Or is that something else?

  445. LC, I think he rolled his tank top up and tied a knot in the front.

  446. MOM!!!! AGGIE IS BEING HETERONORMATIVE!!!

  447. HETERONORMATIVE is sooooo sexy

  448. HAHAHAHAHA!!!

  449. Awww, did you see how nice he was to Gabby Giffords?

    FOUR MORE YEARS!

  450. If you have a problem with him wearing a bra, then you must be a racist. Why you gotta h8?!

  451. The glutes in the header are made from chromium steel!

  452. We sure could use a new post. *coughsjewstincoughs*

  453. Oh, I don’t care if he wears a bra, Cyn.

    But the least he can do is match the rest of the outfit.

  454. You do have a point Aggie. Plus, he’s wearing white tennis shoes after Labor Day.

  455. DO NOT USE DAVE’S RECIPE.

    It is a fake. The Michaels fell for it and it is uneatable.

    Technically, it is not uneatable. Speaking from personal experience.

    It’s just that the consequences of eating it will not be good.

  456. who put ugly orange ass in header?

    I demand some answers here.

  457. Cyn, your avatard is orange. Is that your ass? If so, take it back.

  458. Howdy, Tushar!!

  459. Hey, Aggie! I am sure it is not your ass. Your avatard has lovely legs.

  460. Tushar!

    That’s not an orange ass…

    It’s a squash ass.

  461. People who are assuming it is a guy, did you not read yesterday’s posts?

  462. I have my doubts, too, Tushar.

  463. Is that your ass? If so, take it back.

    HAHA! I love you too, Tush.

  464. MJ, could you use posole in Florida as a chili recipe?

  465. >>That’s not an orange ass…
    >>It’s a squash ass.

    Gaaahh!!!! I am a man. I see primary color. Squash is not a color for me. It is a fruit. And fuschia is not even a word.

  466. Or a veggie. one of those

  467. On further reflection, the color of that dude’s pants up there is the same as the facepaint our CiC is wearing for the SOTU. No shit.

  468. Actually, I thought it was Carin’s ass.

  469. People who think it is a dude’s ass, pl. see this poat

    https://thehostages.wordpress.com/2012/01/23/monday-muscular-motivational/

  470. Okay I looked, Tushar. And DAMN if I’m not jealous all over again about how long he’s grown his hair!

  471. Tushar – They are being facetious. They think the woman is over-developed and therefore looks like a dude.

  472. That ass could sort through change and find all the wheat pennies.

  473. fanfuckingtastick, I’m not the only one that thought that ass was worth another look

  474. I just watched about thirty seconds of the SOTSCOAMF.

    I need to call my sponsor.

  475. Take another look at her shoulders…

  476. Chief speaks the truth, Tushar. We’ve been calling them guys on and off since MMM started.

    Don’t look at me like that; I am NOT jealous. I have worked very very hard to maintain my creamy white Victorian thighs, thankyouverymuch.

  477. There are some spiffy new digs if anybody is innarested.

  478. I just watched about thirty seconds of the SOTSCOAMF.

    I need to call my sponsor.

    HAHAHA! We may need to put your sponsor on some kind of nationwide group conference call!

  479. that woman person thing could crack walnuts and turn coal into diamonds.

  480. Sean – I’m not allowed to watch, onacounta my Tourettes.

  481. Pssst … there’s a nuuu poot.
