  1. What an incredible post. AMAZING!!

  2. Waiter, I will have what he is having. Thank you.

  3. from the other thread

    yep I agree with what you’re saying Vmax I had to re-read it. It is speaking of western culture and freedoms for the majority of the post but then at the end it throws in the whammy about non-Christians.

    It’s spends alot of time supporting it’s original premise then concludes with a different premise all together. I just have such a short attention span that I was addressing it’s closing. As far as other religions like I was talking about, it’s seems Jews have had a pretty hard time around the world over the years.

  4. Do not enjoy The Bloody. I make for guests.

  5. v-man, that quoted bit from the last thread was from here.

  6. Never trust a man who doesn’t enjoy the Bloody Mary. -Abraham Lincoln

  7. So he’s pointing to a recent judges decision that seems to be based on Sharia law and contradict our constructional freedoms as proof that the western world is at odds with everyone else?

    HOW DARE YE!!!

  9. Sorta, yes. That – I think it pretty well does illustrated the idea that liberty is incompatible with Islam.

    I don’t think he’s arguing we’re at odds with everyone else. Certainly islam.

    And, freedom is under attack in Europe … as they’ve become more secular.

  10. Does anyone know if the White House has had any reaction to the two officers killed yesterday in the Afghan Ministry?

    God, I hate him.

    They are waiting until the last person on earth forgets that Kerplakistan was called the ‘just’ and ‘good’ war by the left. Then they’ll use it as an excuse to get out, and blame Bush.

  12. “freedom is under attack in Europe … as they’ve become more secular”

    kinda oxymoronic, aren’t freedom and secular on the same end of the spectrum.

  13. I do not know where the author is coming from Count.
    I have read Toqueville, Madison, Jefferson, Adams, Even George Washington all said America has freedom because it is christian. Or something close to that.
    It would be stupid to say that it is solely Christianity that is the basis for freedom. The Greeks were far from christian when they experimented with freedom. The Roman republic rose and fell before Christ. Israel had a nice working free state going for them.

    I think what the author was politely saying is that Islam is not compatible with free western civilization.

    I thought of one better Japan not christian not western has blended western with eastern and is successfully compatible with civilization.

  14. That’s a fine looking beverage.

  15. oops Israel has not had.

  16. kinda oxymoronic, aren’t freedom and secular on the same end of the spectrum.

    The irony, though, is that has Europe has increasingly become secular- that whole “freedom” thing has constricted.

    Perhaps they’re not doing it right?

    Secular doesn’t really have anything to do with “freedom” per sec. Just means non-religious. Stalin was pretty secular.

  17. We should leave this wired up to a nuke this with a note that says, ‘push if you hate america.’

    They also adopted equality through multiculturalism.

    /Steyn

  19. I think part of Europe’s problem is they have never been very comfortable with traditional liberalism. I don’t think they’ve ever quite shaken off the concept of feudalism. They just traded barons and kings for MPs and Prime Ministers.

  20. Sure, MJ. There are many factors in play.

    I’m not so stuck on the religious aspect of it all, merely on the society that our religious founders created. Even those non-Godbotherers have adopted many of the foundational beliefs; Do unto others sort of stuff.

  21. Yeah, they seem to have this thing about non mooooslims and wanting to kill them. That seems to always get in the way of a healthy relationship between us.

  22. I – though – don’t know if it’s the religion, or the fact that that they’re just stuck in the 7th century. Backward motherfuckers, really.

    I go back and forth on this.

  23. A free society tolerates secularism. I think Carin was saying that as christian thought has declined in europe secular thought has increased along with muslim immigration. Freedom has declined.

  24. Culture or religion.

    I could argue either way.

    I mean if they weren’t so ass backward, their religion could have advanced as other religions have.

    So, there’s that.

  25. I’m not so stuck on the religious aspect of it all, merely on the society that our religious founders created.

    Totally agreed. I’ve been thinking about the concept of equality lately, and while most people believe it is a good thing–how could you be against equality–I’ve come to the conclusion that it will eventually lead to Aldous Huxley’s vision of the future.

  26. Yes, what vman is saying.

    I’m really just sorta thinking aloud through all this.

    ALthough, I don’t think its really fair to say it’s a rise in secular thought. I think that secular humanism is what has replaced it.

    Or, socialism as a religion.

  27. Mark Levin’s book talks about this a lot.

    We’re about Liberty, not equality.

    W/o liberty – equality turns into communism. Basically.

  28. I would like to read that book.

  29. Levin’s new book is not light reading.

    LOL.

    I read it once, but I’m going to have to go back and re read, etc.

  30. Buy the hard copy, not digital. And read with a pencil in hand to make notes in the margins.

  31. W/o liberty – equality turns into communism. Basically.
    ——————-
    That’s pretty much my point. Take the EU, for example. Greece will pretty much be run by Germany, and that always turns out well.

  32. Ok, I’m off to church. For Lent I gave up not going to church anymore.

  33. And read with a pencil in hand to make notes in the margins.

    No shit. I thought it would be like listening to his show, but then I realized I was back in a college lecture for reekis sakes.

  34. Underpants

  35. Say a prayer for me. I need it, but I refuse to pray.

  36. 7 more just got injured by a hand grenade.

  37. So my new boss is bringing me his copy of “Killing Lincoln” to read and his copy of the mini-series John Adams for Count and I to watch this week.

  38. I enjoyed the John Adams series. It lacked the Deadwood ‘cocksucker’ dialogue, but was very good nonetheless. Fuckin cocksuckers those Recoats were.

  39. What ever happened to Deadwood? I watched the first season and now I don’t know why I didn’t finish it

  40. Plato Aristotle et all teach the individual has a duty and obligation to follow the laws of society and a free society could function in those laws. There were issues with obeying god or society oversimplification alert.
    Christ teaches deny your self serve your brother render unto caesar

    A free people follow the rule of law. When the law is ignored freedom suffers muslems have their own law freedom suffers.

  41. I enjoyed the John Adams series on HBO. Dear god do not buy the book! It is not even a good sleep aid, it is ragingly hard to read.

  42. Vman my SIL (Counts’ youngest sister) has her degree in History, and she had the hardest time reading that book. I watched her struggle through it for months and I don’t think she ever finished it.
    FYI~ Count just made the best breakfast.

  43. Deadwood creators said it was too expensive to continue.

  44. Countchocula just made the best breakfast… WERE THERE GRITS? I miss grits.

  45. nerp no grits this mornin just a mound of sausage, eggs, cheese, and salsa for her. I get the same thing but wrapped in tortillas. She’s on some stupid diet

  46. It was a good show. We got into Boardwalk Empire but kind of lost interest in the middle of last season. I really Love Game of Thrones and it starts back up April 1st. True Blood is my favorite but it doesn’t come back on until Summer. I have never seen a show that goes so long between seasons. Hell, The Biggest Loser usually only has 2 weeks between seasons.

  47. Funny fact about Deadwood ‘the series’. The guy that played Hursts bodyguard, Alan Graf, was my immediate boss on that football movie by O.Stone(noted commie lover)

  48. If breakfast shit in the woods, and there were no grits involved, it is worth tracking that breakfast for a kill?

  49. Count, reading that is so depressing.

    Obama is such a horrible President. When we look back I hope his golfing and vacationing are prominently highlighted.

  50. Wow–that is depressing. On so many levels.

  51. I contributed to the recipes blog. What do I win?

  52. It really is awful

  53. I want the keys to the recipe blog? Where they is?

  54. Gimme a sec for some keys, Soohoos.

  55. Check you g-string-spot-mail

  56. Cyn that was Count under my name and I no longer have my gmail only yahoo

  57. Heh–silly Count.

    I used “g-string” loosely and sent it to your yoohoo email addy.

  58. Should I send keys to Count instead/as well??

  59. How confusing.

  60. Count’s the one with the fabulous rack, right?

  61. My sheltie of 9.5 years died last night. I think someone poisoned him. I feel bad that I never let him get laid.

  63. Oh dear, PG… that’s AWFUL. So sorry for your loss.

  64. PD, I’m really sorry to hear that, it’s terrible. Do you really think someone poisoned him?

  65. The Sunday Book thread is UP!

  66. “I feel bad that I never let him get laid.”

    Don’t, water under the bridge.

  67. Yes, send them to Count please sweet Cynful. Sorry for your loss PG

  68. PG, I’m sorry, that’s simply awful.

  69. Aww, shucks, Pendejo.

  70. Sent to Count; also, I resent to you Sohos ‘cuz I screwed up the role dealie.

  71. Thank you

  72. I am so sorry to hear of your sheltie’s passing, PG :(

  80. mary = mare but with a y

  81. Sorry about your loss, PG.

  82. Using Mary is fine too!

    That reminds me, Aggie, I’ve got to send the link to my kiddies.

  83. Is it too late to sign up? It definitely sounds interesting.

  84. Could you fwd that link to me as well please, Mare–TYIA.

  85. Not too late to register

  86. It is free but they ask for a donation IF YOU CAN. I’m planning on using it and sending it to my two adult children and my husband so I gave them a donation.

    I hope this is the right one. (you register in order to receive the link to materials via email)

  87. Speaking of emails, I got one from Krow/WPDunn.

    He got the man-bear-pig-shark flu and is fine but he gave it to his computer or something, and now is in the process of moving to Okie land. He wanted me to tell you that in spite of everyone here sucking worse than cowface and Rosetta’s soiled Pokemon hazmat suit, he still misses us.

  88. Thanks for the Hillsdale linkies, Mare/Count.

  89. Impressive

  90. Mary, Mary quite contrary…

    Why are you so contrary?

    Maybe you need a drink.

  91. Glad to hear he’s ok, Cyn!

    Give him a smooch from me :)

  92. hahahaha Layra!

  93. Good morning, nitro-burning funny car drivers.

  94. “Good morning, nitro-burning funny car drivers.”

    HA! Right back to my youth. Heard those commercials all the time.

  95. And the funny car event was always on “sunday, Sunday, SUNDAAAAAAAAY”

  96. uh oh there’s a looker front row dr. Larry Arnns class.

  97. Ok, first church service of Lent survived.

  98. And, HELLO??? when did they change up all the responses and stuff?

    And why?

    WHY?

  99. Honestly, most of the people there were still reading off of a sheet they gave out at the door.

    I don’t know when they did it, but obviously I’m not the only one who was lost.

  100. I see they changed in Nov 26th.

    Cripes, I’m going to need a cheat sheet all through lent.

  101. Thanks for condolences. Just got back from burial. I’m glad he wasn’t a Great Dane.

  102. Cripes, I’m going to need a cheat sheet all through lent.

    You could just mumble it about two syllables behind the person beside you.

  103. Same here, Carin.

  104. You should go to church more often Carin. You are so out of practice.

  105. Oh there’s DiT. Morning how you feeling? How’s the syphilis?

  106. ah shit, I’m sorry Pendejo.

  107. Hey count. Still feel like shit but I went to church.

    I have to get better to die.

  108. Car/in- The announcement was made in 2011 and put into practice a few months back.
    ‘Full implementation of the Roman Missal, Third Edition began around the United States and most of the English-speaking Catholic world on the First Sunday of Advent, 2011. While the preparation phase of the Missal has passed, the work of preparing hearts and minds to enter more deeply into the mystery of faith continues.

    Revised principles for translation (Liturgiam authenticam) were issued in 2001, and the third edition of the Missale Romanum was promulgated in 2002 (and emended in 2008). Nine years later, a monumental work of inculturation—the English translation of the Latin text—has reached fruition in churches and oratories around the world. There is need for patience with assembly and ministers as we all struggle to learn, to understand, and to interiorize our ageless faith in a new verbal expression.’–USCCB.org

  109. If you “hear” the changes the only think I could muster as well as my daughter was…”oh, Brother!”

    Last year at the Stations of the Cross, my husband and I could only look over at each other and raise our eyebrows; The follow along booklet was so flowering and in such language of lovers that it was embarrassing to read out loud.

  110. So, my doofus brother sent my sister the following regarding her facebook question of why the Bush bashers are silent today about the price of oil.

    …”I must inform you that the “Futures Market” on Wall Street sets pricing of oil based on the following; world events, availability, GREED. The president has nothing to do with setting the price of oil. I must inform you because obviously you are ill-informed. When you post unfactual information for the world to see it makes you look like a fool. BTW, Baby Bush took the most vacation time of any (with the exception of one other) U.S. sitting president of all time.”………

    Discuss. I have no time to respond as I have to get back to work. Where can one find a President’s vacation itinerary. I dont’ remember Bush taking as many vacations as my brother’s king.

  111. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.

  112. ‘Where can one find a President’s vacation itinerary.’
    Car/ins hard drive.

  113. Beasn, it depends on what definition the media and the administrations use for the term “vacation”.

  114. beasn – to get that number, they have to count all those days Bush worked from his ranch.

  115. Well, we know one thing for sure, Obama has played more golf during his Presidency than Bush ever did and Bush was in office 8 years, Obama a miserable 3.

  116. PG, I’m so sorry to hear about your dog’s death. What an awful thing, especially if you think he was poisoned.

    Why do you think that, and who is on the “suspicious list”?

    My condolences to you.

  117. I don’t know if Bush ever “vacationed” anywhere else but his ranch.

  118. For beasn’s idiot brother:

    Wall Street sets pricing of oil based on the following; world events, availability, GREED.

    The president has nothing to do with setting the price of oil.

    World events – True, Obama has little control, other than to say that he is considered the LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD!!! No control, perhaps, but his bumbling and his weak leadership have certainly not made the world a more secure, more stable place.

    Availability – Obama TOTALLY has control over this aspect. His administration is violation of a court order to lift the moratorium on drilling in the Gulf, reducing availability. He also just blocked the building of the Keystone Pipeline, which would have allowed us to purchase oil from Canada instead of the Middle East, again, reducing our availability to oil. Instead, Canada is now selling their oil to China, who is happy to have it.

    Both of those decision directly affect availability. So, genius, if you freely admit that availability affects price and I just showed you how Obama is reducing availability, please explain how you cannot connect those two facts and see that, at least in this instance, Obama is massively affecting the price of oil?

    Greed – heh. How cute. Damn those evil capitalists for trying to make money. They should just buy all the oil themselves and give it all away. When the hell did making a profit become “evil?”

    How much does anyone want to bet that, should beasn send this to her brother, he will only respond to that last point?

  119. Was your brother the outspoken pillar of truth when it came to a presidents culpability or lack their of in regards to the price of gas at the pump when Bush was at the helm? Obamisiah, Nancy Pelosi, Wasserdouche, and every other libtard had a complete and opposite view. There are a shit ton of videos reflective on that on youtube if his memory fails him (3 years was a long time ago I realize) It’s not a question of right or wrong so much as a question of consistency, or lack there of.
    Vacations who had more or less. Don’t know or care. Why does every libtard think the only measuring stick ever is that of George Bush. If he’s such a tool as they say he is then why does he set the bar for which Obamasiah need only pass under? Once again, we’re dealing with libtards consistency or lack there of.

  120. so sorry, PG. That is incredibly sad news.

    Do you think he was intentionally poisoned or that maybe he just got into something that he shouldn’t have?

  121. The “other” president Beasn’s brother is accusing of taking more vacation time is Reagan.

  122. Yea, PG. sorry bout the pooch :(

    Do you have a picture of him?

  123. Obama a miserable 3.

    “miserable” being the key word here….

  124. Why does every libtard think the only measuring stick ever is that of George Bush.

    They never got over losing the 2000 election.

  125. Ok, you can o better than that Wiser. How about this one?

    Him biking wasn’t vacationing.

  126. Or, this one.

  127. Thank you wiserbud. I’m on the cusp of detesting the shithead. I will send it to him via my sister and see how he responds. He is a user and a taker. He dug himself a hole and kept digging and now blames everyone but himself for his troubles. I think he is now on disability for some dumbassed reason. He is 2 years younger than myself, not much taller or heavier. There is no good reason for him to be disabled.

    He owes me thousands of dollars and told us, after he had a decorator redo his house, that has now been repossessed, that we should write it off on our taxes.

    It pisses me off more than anything that he would use my husband’s good nature like he did. My sister, the evil one, could be his twin. They look and act exactly the same. Users.

    Thanks again. Lunch is over, time to run back to work.

  128. If that was the picture of him without his shirt on, I’m really glad that link didn’t work…

  129. How does a man’s knees touch on a bicycle? I bike alot and that just doesn’t happen. Mangina?

  130. This one is Michelle’s in Spain, but it’s also a nice contrast in vacations.
    THose are all the people being kept away.

  131. Or, this one.

    well, if we were being fair, that’s not really a “vacation.”

    But I truly believe that it is extremely tasteless and disrespectful of him to play as much golf as he does while our boys are dying in a war that he has been prosecuting for the last three years.

    Oh, wait… that reasoning only counts if he’s a Republican.

    Never mind.

    Tee it up, big guy!

  132. George Bush decided that when men and women were in a war zone, risking life and limb, playing golf seemed very inappropriate. He felt remorse.

    He made a lot of mistakes, but caring about the troops and their families became a priority to him. I still respect him for that.

  133. Beasns next creation, thanks to brother.

  134. THose are all the people being kept away.

    How much you want bet that, given the chance, more than half of those people would have voted for him. “OMG, the Obamas are soooo dreeeeamy….”

  135. THose are all the people being kept away.

    Probably just clearing a big enough spot on the sand for Michelle’s big ass to plop down on.

  136. Symptoms is all I have to go by. Don’t know if it was intentional or not. My storage shed door sometimes blows open in the wind, however there is nothing on the floor. I am in the process of terminating an employee though. No pics car in but he was a Blue Merle Shetland Sheepdog.

  137. He felt remorse.

    He actually stopped playing. From what I understand, he hasn’t played since, has he?

    But remember all the grief he got from the left and the media (BIRM) when he did dare to step outside of the WH and play a round of golf?

    Bush golfs. Left’s reaction? “JUST LOOK AT THAT LAZY FOOL! DOESN’T HE HAVE WORK HE SHOULD BE DOING???!”

    Obama golfs. Left’s reaction? “OMG, look at that beautiful swing. What an amazing stance. He’s a natural, isn’t he? OMG, look at those perfectly creased slacks…. *thud..”

  138. Busah goes for a run: Left’s reaction? “HE HAS TIME FOR THAT??? SHOULDN’T HE BE WORKING OR SOMETHING?”

    Obama bowls (badly). Left’s reaction? “oh my, what grace. What style. What a natural athlete we have in Obama. Truly, we are blessed to have such a fine graceful, healthy, specimen of man as our President. If only we were all as healthy and graceful as he…. I’m sorry, whut? Cigarettes? What cigarettes? WHY I NEVER!!! Not MY President….”

  139. Bush still plays he created a tournament every year for wounded vets. Pretty awesome.

  140. The one thing Bush never let his schedule drive was meeting with families who had lost their loved ones in the war. He always said “we have as much time as you need”.

    He faced it, knowing he was ultimately responsible. What an awful thing to have to bear. But he didn’t pussy out and avoid the families.

    I still remember when he and Laura came to Ft. Hood after Nidal Hassan’s murders. Quietly, at night with no press. To express his support.

    That is integrity. Honor. I could forgive him all the rest of the things that made me crazy, for that alone.

  141. wiserbud = racist

  161. Ok, first church service of Lent survived.

    Yeah, our church turned purple as well this morning. Lent sucks. Who really wants to think about their sins? I would much rather think about something easy, like what’s wrong with Wiserbud.

  162. Eh, it’s not that, Michael.

    I gave up not going to church for lent. I hadn’t been in … a while.

    I think that during Lent, I’m going to give up not telling Wiserbud what’s wrong with him.

    This could result in some very lengthy comments. You don’t have to read them.

  170. WTF delurker comes back for more? We’re losing our touch.

    See, that right there is my first complaint about Wiserbud. I thought it was his job to run off the lurkers. He’s letting us down.

    My second complaint is that he was unreasonable when I offered to buy his teenage daughter (clad in a white bikini at the time). His price point was ridiculous. I expected a more realistic negotiation from a seasoned sales professional.

  171. “This could result in some very lengthy comments.”

    Talking shit about BiW again cause he’s not here to defend himself huh Michael?

    Aristotle and Cicero make my head hurt.

  175. I thought it was his job to run off the lurkers. He’s letting us down.<

    The fact that you're still here is excellent proof of just how tolerant I am those less interesting and intelligent than… well, pretty much anyone else on the internet.

  176. Aristotle and Cicero make my head hurt.

    Jeebers, Scott, what the hell are you doing? If you get smart, you won’t be welcome at H2.

  177. I expected a more realistic negotiation from a seasoned sales professional.

    yeah.. I ask for more than I am willing to accept and you simply walk away.

    That’s some “art of negotiation” going on right there, that is.

  178. If you get smart, you won’t be welcome at H2.

    *wonders if Michael understands the term “irony”

  179. ahhh the takeaway close…

  180. yeah.. I ask for more than I am willing to accept and you simply walk away.

    Wiser, be fair. You were talking about me paying for four years of college, and you had private schools in mind.

    I was thinking maybe $5K at most.

    This was a bid/ask spread that was not going to be closed.

  181. I just finished week one at Hillsdale.

    No spoilers!

    I just started the introductory bit.

    (Does the dog die at the end?)

  182. Moooooooon River!

  183. (Does the dog die at the end?)

    No, don’t worry. The dog gets Timmy out of the well.

  184. Wiser, be fair. You were talking about me paying for four years of college, and you had private schools in mind.

    I was thinking maybe $5K at most.

    This was a bid/ask spread that was not going to be closed.

    Sounds like one of those things that should’ve gone into arbitration.

    Provide me with pictures, articles of said clothing, shot records, videotape, SAT scores, phone logs, etc. and I’ll provide my expert arbitration services for a reasonable fee.

  185. Way back when, there used to be a good commenter at AOSHQ whose online name was Timmy In The Well.

    I’ve always been jealous that he came up with the best handle ever.

  186. I didn’t see the introduction part…….2 hours?

    Crap. There better not be any Cicero.

  187. I’ll provide my expert arbitration services for a reasonable fee.

    You could hire me to stand in the corner and look menacing during the proceedings.

  188. This was a bid/ask spread that was not going to be closed.

    you are forgetting…I did not need to make that sale. It was, and still is, a seller’s market.

    I know what she’s worth and, sorry, $5k? That’s not an offer. That’s an insult.

  189. You could hire me to stand in the corner and look menacing during the proceedings.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

    yeah….

    arbitration fees: how bad lawyers keep other bad lawyers from working at Burger King

  191. Provide me with pictures . . .

    We don’t need arbitration. This deal ain’t gonna happen. I think Wiser is just too emotional about his daughter to be a professional about this.

  192. I think Wiser is just too emotional about his daughter to be a professional about this.

    See, this is where you make your first mistake, misreading the motivations of those across the table from you.

    As I said, I don’t need to make this deal. You, on the other hand……

    It’s a damn good thing they stuck you back in contracts. You would have gotten eaten alive out in the marketplace.

  193. Moooooooon River!

    *looks down at her hips*

    WIIIIDER THAN A MILE!!!!

  194. arbitration fees: how bad lawyers keep other bad lawyers from working at Burger King

    I sort of agree with that. Really good lawyers make a deal, or they take the gloves off and go to court.

  195. I sort of agree with that.

    *rethinks opinion of arbitration attorneys…..

    no…. waitaminute here… this can’t be right…….

  196. I just did my taxes and I think somebody else is not paying their fair share.

  197. Even better lawyers say “I am gonna get me one of those black robes so I can totally fuck with these idiots”

  198. (Does the dog die at the end?)

    No, but somebody DOES find $20…..

    You bastard.

    *moves Wiser to top of the “Kill First” list, calls up LauraW to rent the flying monkeys for a day or so*

  199. Oh, and welcome back, Guy M.!

  200. You bastard.

    Whaa? Didn’t you like my shirt?

  201. I just did my taxes and I think somebody else is not paying their fair share.
    ————————–
    My wife basically works for the government. Her salary is what we pay in taxes.

  202. You would have gotten eaten alive out in the marketplace.

    “Out in the marketplace,” I’ve been to conference rooms in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, LA, Des Moines, Chicago, Jefferson City, Houston, Atlanta, Miami, New York, D.C., Providence, Kingston, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, London, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Zurich, Warsaw, Dusseldorf, (never got a business trip to Paris), Tel Aviv, Seoul, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Melbourne, and Honolulu.

    That’s just off the top of my head. I’m pretty sure I did not get eaten alive.

  203. How does Obama plan on fixing high gas prices?
    He’s gonna find a new way to talk about it!

  204. We find the defendant guilty on all counts.

  205. My wife basically works for the government. Her salary is what we pay in taxes.

    That’s why I was able to leave the workforce when DD#1 was young – we sat down and ran the numbers.

    I was making VERY little per hour (after taxes, SS, Medicare, childcare, etc.), and it would have been cut in half by childcare costs when a second kid came along.

    Never looked back…..

  206. So, who’s up for liveblogging the Academy Awards?

  207. Can I do it the way that Bill Murray used to do it?

  208. That’s why I was able to leave the workforce when DD#1 was young – we sat down and ran the numbers.
    ————–
    This will probably happen if we get around to having kids.

  209. Never looked back…..

    Cathy and I did the same math when we had our second child. Scared me at first, but turned out that the loss of her income was painless.

  210. This was a nifty video over at IB, by the way.

    Americans are not only great, they’re good.

  211. I’ve been to conference rooms in …….

    oooooooo, conference rooms……

    ooooooooooooo

  212. This was a nifty video over at IB, by the way.

    still hate Red Sox fans though….

  213. Even better lawyers say “I am gonna get me one of those black robes so I can totally fuck with these idiots”

    Hate to tell you this Dave, but the judge is typically the dumbest lawyer in the room. That’s why the litigators have to work so hard at coaching them.

  214. I’m pretty sure I did not get eaten alive.

    Look, all I have to go on is what I’m seeing here.

    And if this is how you approached your negotiations in those conference room, wellll…. let’s just say that I’m not surprised that Yankee Stadium is still called Yankee Stadium…..

  215. >> but the judge is typically the dumbest lawyer in the room.

    So why aren’t you one?

  216. This will probably happen if we get around to having kids.

    You can start by having sex. The results are amazing.

  217. You can’t touch the Yankee Stadium brand name.

    But the business center at Yankee Stadium has our name.

  218. So why aren’t you one?

    Well, I thought about it. Then I decided to aim lower and get into DoD contracting. So far, that has not worked out.

  219. >> Then I decided to aim lower and get into DoD contracting.

    You’re not that dumb.

  220. But the business center at Yankee Stadium has our name.

    heh. Explains why you think you can get my daughter for a mere $5k if you think that’s a big accomplishment.

    There’s an actual bar/restaurant suite with the local casino’s name on it there.

    But you guys got the business center naming rights?

    UP HIGH, BUDDY!! ONE TIME!!!

    I’d like to get a 2nd opinion from your parents on that one, counselor…

  223. If you two bitches don’t stop scratching at each other I’m going to murder the both of you and lay my parasitic larvae in your warm corpses.

  224. He is on a roll :D

    he’s killing….

  225. If you two bitches don’t stop scratching at each other

    at “each other?”

  226. Laura, a bit of advice:

    Never, ever give away your modus operandi.

  227. What? I thought everybody knew the beautiful miracle by which hunchbacks reproduce.

    Cow face?

  232. I have work tonight. 1 day in January 2 days in Feb. I guess I will not be hanging out with you hot chicks and reprobates tonight.

  233. Am I the only one who wants the military to start bombing Afghani mosques with cans of SPAM?

  234. Also, holiday Sweettarts are the debbil.

  235. I had something stronger in mind BiW

  236. Hate to tell you this Dave, but the judge is typically the dumbest lawyer in the room. That’s why the litigators have to work so hard at coaching them.

    Word to your Mother’s Brother’s Uncle;s Cousin.

  237. Am I the only one who wants the military to start bombing Afghani mosques with cans of SPAM?

    If by SPAM you mean depleted uranium and napalm, then no, you’re not alone.

  238. We’re about a billion muzzies shy.

  239. A free society tolerates secularism. I think Carin was saying that as christian thought has declined in europe secular thought has increased along with muslim immigration. Freedom has declined.

    Christianity has declined in Europe, and when people stop governing themselves, then their masters in government will do it for them, thus decreasing freedom. But that isn’t why Europe is headed straight for the rocks. That is happening because they are distancing themselves further and further from the foundations of Western Civilization, and they have nothing to counter the growing influence of the asp they willingly took to their bosom. Now we just get a ringside seat for the demographic inevitablity that will destroy the continent as we have known it.

  240. Posted this over at Face of Hades, but it got no reaction so I figured I would post it somewhere less highbrow:

    A hell of a lot better than Stephen King.

  270. Workey Workey

  271. Still fighting the Car in flu Dave?

  272. Stephen King is a local hero in Bangor, truly a generous guy for charity, but he is a raging lefty. He funds a local AM station that carries a bunch of lib talkers…uggh. It requires some restraint when people talk about Saint Stephen around town.

  273. Well, politics aside, you are still better off being chased by a nice pair of bewbs than by Stephen King.

  274. Just saw Act of Valor.

    Yeah, got a bit dusty there at the end…

  275. I’m gonna have to go see if this is actually strep tomorrow. Sonofa..

    I slept a lot this afternoon though, the coughing is better.

  278. I cried Xbrad

  279. Oh, I didn’t cry.

    The bastards.

  281. I had allergies.

    Uh huh…..

  282. Some of the cinematography was fantastic. Other parts were too dark to really see what was going on, but that’s a common failing in movies.

    I just figgered out I can get love and support for quitting smoking.

    So I’m gonna quit quite often.

  305. Liberals always say we have to be “tolerant”, when what they really WANT is unquestioning acceptance and accommodation.

    Here’s what I have to say to them:

    “Tolerance” means we agree to disagree, and as long as you don’t shove your agenda in my face/down my throat, we’ll get along just fine.

    You start telling me that I HAVE to accept your lifestyle choices and/or make accommodations for your peccadilloes means that we are going to be in conflict.

    Tolerance is a two-way street.

  306. Congrats, Wiser!

  307. HAHAHAHA!!!!! Thank you!

  308. I had twitter once.

    By the end of the second day it felt like someone had applied a belt-sander to the back of my throat.
    Third day it was into the head-sinus.
    Fifth day, down into the chest.
    Coughing, sneezing, dripping, blowing hell.
    Gettin’ sick and tired of being sick and tired.

  356. Maybe Dave is pregnant….

  357. You too, ChrisP. Although that sounds more like AIDS.

  358. From comment 47 at Andys AoSHQ ‘Stan thread:

    “Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told an audience of Arab students in Tunisia on Saturday to not pay any attention to the rhetoric and comments made by the Republican candidates vying for President Barack Obama’s job, saying their rhetoric does not reflect U.S. policy.

    According to CNN, Clinton’s remarks came in response to a question from a Tunisian student in the audience who asked about the pro-Israel stance of nearly every American politician

    “There are comments made that certainly don’t reflect the United States, don’t reflect our foreign policy, don’t reflect who we are as a people. If you go to the United States you see mosques everywhere, you see Muslim Americans everywhere. That’s the fact. So I would not pay attention to the rhetoric.”

    (From the Blaze)

    So, according to the Hildabeast, ‘we’re all muslims here, pay no attention to those pesky Jews’?

    WTF,O?

  359. Yet American Jews continue to vote overwhelmingly Democrat. Go figure.

  360. It’s just a shitty cold. What’s cool about it is that Anita brought it home from the ladies church-group that meets on Thursday night for bible-study..
    Three days later, she was sick.
    Three days later, I was sick.
    Next Thursday, the attendance was 50%, as everyone was sick.
    A bunch of these folks have kids. The schools are awash with this crap.
    So it goes…

    Yes!
    What the hell? Is it denial? Is it self-hate?
    Wanting to separate themselves from Isreal?
    What?
    I have no idea why American jews continue to vote solidly democrat.
    It seem illogical to me, but then, what the fuck do I know?

  364. So, of COURSE, the fat black chick won.

    They LOVE to vote for the minority.

    But only for supporting actress.

  365. Hell, even I’m following wisermeany.

  367. So, of COURSE, the fat black chick won.

    you’re seriously watching that politically correct group-stroke?

    why?

    I honestly cannot imagine anything I care about less than what these smug assholes think about each other.

  368. I wouldn’t mind what Canckles said if I thought she was just saying “Nice Doggie” until we were ready with a big rock, but I fear that the administration is just pumping our asses full of K-Y until they can get us bent over for the Caliphate.

  369. Hell, even I’m following wisermeany.

    best decision you ever made.

  370. I’m not dead yet<<<<<<

    Well, he will be soon, he's very ill.

  371. I’m not dead yet

    //holds pillow over Dave’s face.

    Stop wiggling.

  372. I’m not dead yet

    Have some more of the spicy cheese.

  373. I fear that the administration is just pumping our asses full of K-Y until they can get us bent over for the Caliphate.

    Amazing that Shrillary actually goes along with this. I honestly thought that, in her own twisted way, she felt like she has USA’s best interests at heart.

    Guess it really is just about the power.

  374. hey here’s a tip.. when you have a sore throat don’t eat jalapeno dip.

  375. I’m not dead yet

    not for lack of trying….

    *hands DiT another beer and suggests testing the temperature of the water at the Hoover Dam…

    Oh, and btw, welcome G Mohawk, to our warped little corner of the blogoshpere.

    did you know that PJM’s grandmother was a Blackfoot indian?

    It’s TWUE!!

  376. This is the first time that I have heard this song done this way:

    It’s quite lovely…..

  377. Meh. Another discussion with a liberal fellow:

    Him: I’m all about European style gas taxxes.

    Me: Good luck getting corn from central Nebraska to the Pacific Northwest at 8 bucks a gallon. How much are you willing to pay for a burger?

  378. BiW,
    Unfortunately, I’m afraid you’re correct.
    As one of Lexs’ commenters observed with regard to Iran/mooslims/Isreal.
    “The last big one, Yom Kippur ’73, I was all for letting the Israelis finish it. Brezhnev and I had a difference of opinion, however, and he threatened to intervene if we didn’t. The Egyptian 6th Army was surrounded and cut off, and the Israelis had just started to move to destroy it, when we jerked the leash.

    If we had allowed that, then the Israelis would have settled Assad’s hash. Too bad we couldn’t let them. I’m all for it this time too. Russia may get involved as well. But, if you read Ezekial chapter 38 and 39 you’ll see it won’t matter.”
    Russia being the King of the North.
    We’ll see how it works this time…

  379. Jalepeno dip before bed will give you nightmares. That’s what my mom told me.

    After she served nachos.

  380. We’re all awfully political tonight. Maybe I should go cook something vaguely horrifying so we’ll have a range of topics to discuss.

  381. Hey, New guy!!! Get your shit together.

    http://is.gd/rayvYA

  382. thanks wiserbud, although I am just staying until the beer runs out.

  383. Here’s a more traditional version:

    I recommend Dave listen to this to get to sleep – Car in’s musical choices will keep you up all night….

  384. Jewstin, did your lib friend ever explain WHY Euro style gas taxes were a good thing?

    What other consumer products should we tax out the ass?

    And did you explain that high gas taxation is just about the most regressive tax scheme on the planet? Why does he want to tax the poor?

  385. Another snippet:

    Him: i can go vegetarian

    Me: Vegetables have to fertilized and shipped too. That’s a horrible model.

    Him: farmers can go organic and people can rely more on locally grown produce. it’ll be a utopia.

    Me: If organic farming worked we never would have needed to invent chemical fertilizers.

  386. Heh, that’s the one question every liberal fears…

    Why?

  387. Some people learn only from their own experiences. They’re incapable of learning in any other fashion. I’m almost to the point that I’d advocate that any energy company that produces any type of energy via fossil fuels takes themselves completely off line for 30 days. Let complacent Americans see what the world really would really look like if the enviolunatic wing of the Democratic party, which every major democrat caters to, could realise their vision of what our future ought to look like. Maybe then they’d vote with their eyes open.

    I have other fantasies as well. I won’t share them at present.

  388. If we didn’t have fertilizer, millions would die from malnutrition.

  389. thanks wiserbud, although I am just staying until the beer runs out.

    You run out of beer and we’ll toss you out faster than Xbrad tossing out his male escort when his mom gets home

  390. Why is it “Windfall Profits” when the oil company gets 4% on a gallon of gas while taxes are 15%/gallon?
    The fucking government did not do anything as far as exploration, recovery, transportation, refining, transportation of the resultant products, or marketing, yet they get more in taxes than the producers!
    And the “Big Oil” company is the bad guy?
    I’ve got your Euro gas taxes “Right Here”, IYKWIMAITYD.

  391. I have other fantasies as well. I won’t share them at present.

    PG’s a closet latex hosefucker?

    I do kinda like stop-sign face guy.

  394. closet?

  395. you are so wrong wiserbud. I don’t care what temp that water is.

    *drinks the beer and coughs*

  396. yield sign guy is pretty fly too.

  397. G Mohawk,
    Wander over to gravatar,com and put something there. It will follow you for evah!

  398. Is the avatar I have, the one every non-registree gets or is it completely random?

    It is totally dependent on the number of bullwhips you have up your ass RIGHT NOW!!!!

    Looks like you’ve got eight. Impressive.

  399. And. . . we’ve jumped the shark:

    Him: chemical fertilizers were invented to increase corporate profits and force small producers out of business so that multinationsl could take over with factory farming

    Me: No, chemical fertilizers were invented because of a shortage of food for a rapidly growing population.

    Him: a shortage that was created by companies who bought food en masse to give the impression that there wa sa shortage and that made it seem like we needed factory farming

    Me: So, the Heinz family bought up all the tomatoes and threw them in the ocean so the Dow-Jones family could develop fertilizer and together they made a zillion dollars off this scheme? Call me a skeptic.

  400. Jew, just tell your lib friend that EVERYONE in the 3rd world grows their vegetables organically.

    If they could grow it the same way that developed nations do, they’d do it in the heartbeat…..

  401. After living without power for a week and seeing lines out the wazoo for gas in April last year, I’ll pass on the Democrats’ utopia, TYVM.

  402. Plants need nitrogen. They don’t really give a flying fuck as to how they get it.

    Farmers need for their plants to have nitrogen. They choose the most cost effective way of supplying it. The overwhelming consensus, as expressed by the market, is that commerically produced fertilizers is the most cost effective and efficient way to supply it.

    The plants don’t seem to mind.

    Plants need herbivorous bugs to leave their asses alone so that they can mature and produce fruit/grain/etc. They seriously don’t give a fuck……..you prolly know where I’m headed with this.

    Gullible, low information, consumers will be the first to starve. It’s like…..Darwinian or something.

  403. Jew, if your friend wants to live in “Utopia”, tell him to quit using ANYTHING that he can’t make himself.

    Honestly, I wish that all of these people would just go somewhere and start living off of the land, like they want the rest of us to.

    -no cellphone
    -no car
    -no computer
    -no electricity (no washer, no dryer, no HVAC, no TV, etc.)
    -no grocery stores
    -no Starbucks non-fat soy latte
    -no shopping malls
    -no restaurants
    -no hot & cold running water
    -no toilets

    We’ll air-drop them into the wilds of Montana, and they can all see how Utopia really works.

    The rest of us will be able to live without having to listen to their pious sanctimony, and they won’t be able to find their way back to civilization.

    Win-win…..

  404. *Chewing on Tums:

    Him: we waste a lot in this country.

    Him: fuel, food,, etc.

    Me: You mean like ethanol where we grow food and then burn it?

    Him: No, not ethanol.

  405. Teresa, I like the way you think. But Montana is kind of pretty. Can we dump them in the middle of Nevada instead?

  406. Deep, deep, deep in the Amazon rain forrest. It seems to be vastly underpopulated. I hugely enjoyed a Michael Crighton novel where they gathered up and dumped a bunch of experts on sustainability in the middle of the Amazon basin. It was the feel good novel of that particular year.

  407. Romacita,
    After the snow/wind/ice-storm we had here, and being without power (and for us, on a well, without water)for a while, we found ourselves being very much in favor of self sufficiency and not depending on the societal structure for getting by.
    For the first couple days we were shoveling snow to get water to flush. After a couple, we dragged the generator out and gassed it up to re-charge the well.
    PSE “Puget Sound Energy” has given us a $50 credit on our electric bill to compensate for our “inconvenience”, during the outage.
    That won’t even pay for the gas for the generator.

    The Demoncrats can take their utopia and shove it up their ass, sideways.

  408. Jew, if it’s summertime, we can drop them off in Nevada, but if it’s wintertime, I say we drop them off in the remotest part of Montana that we can find.

    Deep in the mountains.

  409. The Demoncrats can take their utopia and shove it up their ass, sideways.

    Not until they’re done stretching ours.

  410. Pendjo,
    I loved that one, as well. This is your model, then live it!
    Dumped in the middle of nothing, with nothing!
    So it goes…

  411. Mostly because there are only like 3 “real” towns in Montana, and they are far apart from each other.

    Let’s see how long it takes them to decide that it’s OK to cut down trees and burn them for heat.

    Or to kill an animal so that they can use its fur to keep them warm.

    And just let them TRY and find some edible plants in January…..

  412. There’s a reason my kids always told their friends that they didn’t want to mess with their momma….. :P

    Oh, well – enough fun for one day; time for the TiFWs to go beddy-bye.

    Sweet dreams, all!
    Dave, I hope you get lots of rest tonight and feel better in the morning ♥

  413. I want to see them try to find where the tofu grows.

    Of course, after a few months with no showers, they’ll be able to substitute fromunda.

  414. I understand having disagreements and discussions, but half the time with liberals you’re screaming inside your brain ‘Why the fuck are we even talking about this?!’

  415. I understand having disagreements and discussions, but half the time with liberals you’re screaming inside your brain ‘Why the fuck are we even talking about this?!’

    Because reality is a buzzkill for them. They can’t win on their failures that are, so they have to focus on what they believe could be, with their intelligent and knowledgable guidance.

    We’ve become a nation of experts lacking in sucess and practical experience.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!

  417. new poat that will be pushed down by muscle-bound obsessive lesbians, but worth poating anyway
