Back in a few. grabbig a coffee
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Now am I right in thinking that twerking involves an eggbeater?
adlib 7 days ago
or sporks
Harleigh

7 days ago
I was thought “spork” was the sound of a bubble in a bathtub (from one WC fan to another).
adlib 7 days ago
Hey slm!
adlib 7 days ago
hey all
sillylittleme

7 days ago
twerking sounds like something a twit and a jerk do…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
So…who should we declare war on next week? Senator McCain, want to take a whack at that one?
adlib 7 days ago
Sorks are like spooning except with sporkin it involves biting follwed by angry sex. LOL
Harleigh

7 days ago
slm – laughing Good one!
adlib 7 days ago
harleigh – lol
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Harleigh – Right, to “spork” is a verb, isn’t it?
adlib 7 days ago
ad – McCain hasn’t ever heard of the country he wants to attack next
sillylittleme

7 days ago
McCain is busy attacking this country all the time. He’d bomb the US just to take out the pacifists.
adlib 7 days ago
of course he would, isn’t that what all megalomaniacs do?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Oh jebus ADLIB.. Mclamebrain would have had us in was in crimea, georgia, iraq, iran, libya, ukraine, afganistan, syria…. he is so whacked.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – At least McCain would’ve solved the unemployment problem by having to draft millions of Americans then keep replacing them as they’re killed.
adlib 7 days ago
AL- yep, honest yer honor we were just sporkin around…
Harleigh

7 days ago
ad – isn’t that usually a good enough reason for war?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
As if we could fight russia over there…. puh-leeze
Harleigh

“I saw Mommy sporking San-ta Claus, underneath the mistletoe last night.

Hi, Monica!
pinkpantheroz

Hi PPO!!!
monicaangela

7 days ago
Hi MA
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm – It wouldn’t have been his reason for war, McCain is just a soulless, hateful bigot who wants all the “different” people in the world dominated or demolished.
adlib 7 days ago
Hi MA
Harleigh

Hello sLm!!

Hey Monica!

Sporking of spork…spork, spork, eggs, sausage and spork.
adlib 7 days ago
ad – I thought we were all different, like little snowflakes
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hello AdLib…I’m still reading your article. You are a true genius. I have had to read it several times, I just love it. smiley
monicaangela

7 days ago
Monica, you are so kind, thanks so much. Really great to hear!
adlib 7 days ago
Well, we seem to have an ocean of topics this week, Rice, War, Gooddel, BTW who won at the Ravens?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
slm…The more different, the more the same we are.
monicaangela

7 days ago
AdLib, credit where credit is due…that’s my motto.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Hmm…maybe Obama could have declared war on the NFL and ordered them into Iraq as ground troops to tackle ISIS?
adlib 7 days ago
MA – so true!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
PPO – Ravens slaughtered the Steelers
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ferguson PD should be the front line!
Harleigh

7 days ago
PPO, do you really think I would participate as a spectator after what has happened this week in the NFL. The news has been so bad it has turned me off where the game is concerned.
monicaangela

7 days ago
thanks, SLM, my cousins in Pittsburgh will be devastated.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ferguson PD should be on trial.
monicaangela

7 days ago
PPO – I was shocked watching the mess, so out of sync
sillylittleme

7 days ago
MA – they should be sent to take out ISIL
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Monica – If not for the DA taking it to a Grand Jury, that cop would have been charged by any competent judge by now.
adlib 7 days ago
MA, that may very well happen after the investigation.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Monica – And the FPD will be on trial, the DoJ is going after them and I think they’re in big trouble.
adlib 7 days ago
slm, I don’t think that would be such a good idea. They would probably wind up joining forces with them like the Sunni’s did.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Looks like next NFL negotiations will be real tricky esp on contract player rules and conduct.
Harleigh

7 days ago
AdLib, I agree…the entire system in Ferguson, and much of the country appears to be corrupt.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Did anyone do anything special for the 9/11 Anniversary?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad, I hope it is true. I hope the DoJ does a good job and helps to resolve some of the issues where FPD is concerned.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Most PD’s have gone off the rails in the past 10 – 15 years
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – We’ll have to see if the NFL puts in a 3 Strikes On a Woman and you’re out system. Oh wait, they already did.
adlib 7 days ago
Harleigh, I’m sure they’re hoping this will all blow over. Rules? What rules?
monicaangela

7 days ago
Ad, it should now be revised to a One Strike and Out rule.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hi Glenn
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Good evening Ad, Monica, SLM, Harleigh, and PPO. How goes it with everyone tonight?
glenn

7 days ago
Hi, glenn
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
MA – most likely they would agree on more than not
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Monica – For those Americans who are white, the militarized police actions around the nation against OWS should have been a wake up call. We now have police militias in much of the US and the Constitution doesn’t restrain their action.
adlib 7 days ago
Sorry PPO, I did not do anything special for the 9/11 anniversary. It is a sad moment every time it is mentioned. I only take time to reflect on those that lost their lives that day and pray this won’t happen again.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Hey glenn! How are you?
adlib 7 days ago
Hi Glenn
monicaangela

7 days ago
Ad–doing well, SOS, how about you?
glenn

7 days ago
Same here, MA. Very little coverage in Australia.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
LOL AL – They must take an in league legal contractual stand that would hold individual players resopnsible for their conduct after the law and those leagalities and trials or whatever.
Harleigh

7 days ago
SLM, I’m sure you are correct. Birds of a feather and all that. wink
monicaangela

7 days ago
Ad, you are correct. Things happen while we sleep. As I have said before….They came for…and I’m sure you know the rest. Wake up America. cry
monicaangela

7 days ago
MA – we should take all of those from around the world who want to harm others and put them on an island together
sillylittleme

7 days ago
What’s the topic? I see a little of NFL, a little of 9/11, and what else?
glenn

7 days ago
Am I alone in this or do other folks see the rebroadcasting of 9/11 as it happened on cable news a kind of morbid and disgusting exercise? Re-experiencing mass murder as it happened? Hours of reliving horror and fear? That’s what it meant to me. I’m not talking about the remembrance of the lives lost but the video replaying all the horribleness. Do we really need to see that year after year? Doesn’t it just embed fear of terrorism in Americans and a readiness to go to war? Especially right now with ISIS?
adlib 7 days ago
slm, that I believe would either solve our problem or allow another ISIS to form.. I guess if we made sure they never got off that Island, maybe that could work. smiley
monicaangela

7 days ago
glenn – All is well here but the hamster wheel still ain’t slowing down!
adlib 7 days ago
Glenn, pick a topic of your own. I’m sure it will be a good one.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Ad–I believe that’s the point. To keep the readiness to go to war alive.
glenn

7 days ago
MA – no exit off the island since they
sillylittleme

7 days ago
‘d have to build something like a ship together…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Harleigh – Zero tolerance should be the case on athletes criminally assaulting women. They are celebrities and role models and society should have at least a few principles.
adlib 7 days ago
Monica–okay, here’s my question. Will Congress vote to go to war against ISIS, now that the administration has actually come out and said it’s a war
glenn

7 days ago
Ad, you are not alone…at least not as far as I am concerned. I feel the same way you do about this continually repetition of the 9/11 scenes on TV.. Ratings? Psychological brainwashing? I haven’t figured it out yet, but it is morbid to say the least.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Glenn – you mean they haven’t complained that he can
sillylittleme

7 days ago
‘t declare war?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Glenn, I agree, it appears that is the reason they do it.
monicaangela

7 days ago
SLM, if that’s the case then I say let’s start transporting today. smiley
monicaangela

7 days ago
SLM–I was watching Rachel Maddow tonight and she was talking about how yesterday it was considered an “antiterrorism action”, and today the administration, the SOS. and the Pentagon have all said we are at war with ISIS.
glenn

7 days ago
I wonder when they are going to show all the video recordings from the Pentagon so we know what happened to that aircraft.
Harleigh

7 days ago
SLM, do you really think those types could work together long enough to build a ship? We’d probably be rid of several of them the first day because of disagreements over what the ship would look like. innocent
monicaangela

7 days ago
MA – lots of weaponry when they
sillylittleme

7 days ago
‘re dropped off
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Monica and glenn – We’re in agreement on this. I think it is cheerleading for Al Qaeda to annually broadcast their greatest victory and America’s greatest failure to protect their people. It makes Al Qaeda look stronger and us look weaker and I agree, it brainwashes the public to fear another attack and want more war.
adlib 7 days ago
AdLib, I agree with what you are saying about zero tolerance. I believe it is the only way.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Monica–would the disagreements be settled with guns? Who would be the “good guys” with the guns? I guess the ones still left standing.
glenn

7 days ago
Hey Kes
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey kids, how’s your weekend starting off tonight?
kesmarn

So now we have Bristol Palin throwing haymakers in a bar room brawl,with Sarah screeching in the background,”Do you know who we are?”Sadly Sarah,we do know you.
beatlex

7 days ago
Hi BeatleX
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Glenn, I believe congress will do whatever those that pay them to go to work tell them to do…By the way, that would not be the citizens of the U.S. they claim to work for. At least not the 99% of us who continually get the shaft.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Hey everyone!
beatlex

7 days ago
B – I thought that was a truly illuminating moment when someone turned to her and told her this wasn’t a fake reality show
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey, Beatlex! The White House would have needed a total restoration if the Palin family had ever moved in there. {{shudder}}
kesmarn

7 days ago
slm…weaponry sounds like too much, you know they love toys…lets let them do hand to hand.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Ad–well considering the media drumbeat aboutwhat a threat to the U>S> ISIS is, so that the American people would become so fearful that they would want to do the same thing to ISIS that they perceive ISIS wants to do to the U>S>, then yes.
glenn

7 days ago
MA – most of them would cry uncle at the first fist
sillylittleme

7 days ago
They didn’t keep showing newsreels in all theaters of the attack on Pearl Harbor on its anniversary for a decade and more. Why do we need to keep seeing that fear mongering annually? To remind us to be afraid, that’s right.
adlib 7 days ago
Glenn – of course it should be settled with guns. Nothins more merikan than a good old fashioned gunfight.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Kesmarn,no kidding hey!
beatlex

7 days ago
Hey Beatlex!
adlib 7 days ago
Sorry Glenn…no guns.
monicaangela

Hello Kes!!

Hello BeateX

Kes – not to mention how many plants they would kill pissing in them…
sillylittleme

Monica–ooooh, no guns…then would we have those big brave shirtless men doing hand-to-hand combat? Or knights on steeds? Ooohh, how manly!
glenn

7 days ago
You betcha, slm! worried

I wonder if the baggers astupid enough to go out and stock up on plastic sheeting and duct tape to secure their trailers for chemical and biological weapons… AGAIN!!! lmao

Hey, Murph!
kesmarn

Harleigh, no they don’t need to because their homes are all still shrink-wrapped
funksands

7 days ago
SLM, you are correct. I don’t believe there would be too many women there for them to beat up on so we would probably hear a continual “This isn’t Fair.”
monicaangela

7 days ago
Hey, funk!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Here is a fact that the MSM and war machine don’t want out…ISIS is not a threat to the US at this time, there are no intelligence agencies that say it is. We shouldn’t be scared of being attacked and act because of that. We should act in concert with the rest of the civilized world to stop ISIS out of a responsibility to the people of the world, not out of fear of an impending attack.
adlib 7 days ago
harleigh – how stupid and the news coverage was hilarious
sillylittleme

LOL funk’

Good to be here, AdLib! And yes, we’re opposing ISIS for the sake of the world.
kesmarn

What up, Murph?!
adlib 7 days ago
Hi Monica, Murph, Ad, Kes, Silly, X, Glenn etc
funksands

7 days ago
Ad- why won’t the scroll let me go up to the top of the discussion and review it. I can move it up but the moment a new comment pops in down at the bottom of the page.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Ad–that’s what I meant by the media beating the drumbeat to make Americans worried that ISIS was going to attack us.
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn, maybe we could do a few videos for you from the scene. innocent
monicaangela

7 days ago
Hi Funksands!!
monicaangela

7 days ago
Murph, that’s either a bug or a feature, depending on how you look at it.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Murph – Good point, I addressed the scrolling problem with the developer who said it would be addressed in the next update. I will follow up with her on that.
adlib 7 days ago
Monica–oooh, please, I may need my fainting couch though!
glenn

7 days ago
I know why Congress does it. They’re bored. Anything to take the focus on the worst-performing professional body on earth (other than the NFL)
funksands

7 days ago
Ad..thanks….makes it hard to catch up. Otherwise I like this forum a lot.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
I think you can hold the page with the scroll bar
Harleigh

7 days ago
murph, try Safari. It isn’t doing that with me.
funksands

7 days ago
I was truly appalled at Miss Lindsey Graham’s comments about the necessity of more American soldiers going over there to be maimed or killed. What is wrong with him?
kesmarn

7 days ago
Harleigh, you are right
funksands

7 days ago
Harleigh…I tried that but it did not work.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Funk- I do everything on Firefox so I am reluctant to rely on Safari.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Ad, you can’t get the MSM to listen to anything like what you are saying. Imagine how ratings would go down if they didn’t continue to beat the drum about ISIS. Imagine the fact that they would not be able to earn their living with commercials if they did not keep the public afraid, very afraid. They have a job to do, and by God they are going to do it. The MIC won’t have it any other way.
monicaangela

7 days ago
glenn – Yes, you are right on. The rebroadcasting of 9/11 only serves to keep instilling fear in Americans that “It could happen again so we gotta bomb them Muslims whenever they get us scared!”
adlib 7 days ago
kes – he is trying to look macho
sillylittleme

gee funk, 13 years ago we lost 4 airliners without a trace right before our eyes!
Harleigh

7 days ago
My favorite quote on Twitter about the drumbeat: From Jeff Sharlett: “I don’t understand,” murmurs the interventionist, as screen fills w/ more & more space invaders. “More I kill, more there are?”
funksands

7 days ago
Funk–the media could talk about what’s happening in the US–you know like Obamacare is working; the deficit is down; unemployment is a point lower now than it was when the shrub left office–you know things like that.
glenn

7 days ago
Boooooorrrring
funksands

7 days ago
Glenn, you’re so right, but that would mean praise for President Obama, and we can’t have that, can we?
pinkpantheroz

Good Sharlett quote, funk!

PPO–Oops, I lost my head. Praise for President Obama? WTH is wrong with me? open_mouth

Miss Lindsey is a warmonger Kes….She really loves seeing those young men go off to fight for her, makes her feel real important.

Kes, it does hit the nail on the head doesn’t it?
funksands

Monica–I’m kinda with Miss Lindsey–I do so love a man in uniform!

Yes, as well-mannered as a mass-murderer wannabe can be, AdLib… confused

I worry more about teaqaeda and the repubs more than the whole ME.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh, I think you’ve got your worry priorities right.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Harleigh–I agree. The teaquada and the repubs are more of a threat to our country than any terrorist. They are the very definition of “domestic terrorists”.

funksands

Right, Harleigh. at least we know they want to kill us. It’s the sly bastards here who want to bleed us to death slowly and starve us for their profit that is the bigger threat
pinkpantheroz

We might have more to worry about from our own law enforcement people than we do from ISIS.

Kes, after reading those articles Kalima placed on the morning blog I’d say you’re absolutely correct.
monicaangela

Thanks, kes, will do. Is it on the WaPO site?

I’m not sure, PPO. But there is a link to it on Morning Blog…
kesmarn

7 days ago
Oh, OK
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Kes, I read it twice, then did some follow up. It’s all true. I had heard about things like that happening but refused to believe it. What a mess this country is in.
monicaangela

7 days ago
If you look back over the last decade of the nazi’s they mostly used local police to supress the population. It worked for the US in central asouth merika too.
Harleigh

Assad still has some chemical weapons,does he not? Maybe America’s military and the President are worried about ISIL getting their hands on them.They would surely use them
beatlex

7 days ago
Right. For those who haven’t seen it, one of the shockers is that if you’re traveling with a lot of cash and the cops stop you. They can take your money and keep it. No questions asked. It’s up to you to prove it’s not drug money.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Beatlex, if you believe the Gummint ( snigger), all chemical weapons are now destroyed, but Assad still has Chlorine, and that’s almost as bad.

Okay, are we at a lull? Oh I guess not. Teacher: “Kids,what does the chicken give you?” Student: “Meat!” Teacher: “Very good! Now what does the pig give you?” Student: “Bacon!” Teacher: “Great! And what does the fat cow give you?” Student: “Homework!”

If you missed it, you’ve got to check out this segment of the Daily Show on the “Apocolypse” Obamacare turned out to be:

The Obamacare Apocalypse
Jordan Klepper joins Fox News pundits in raising the alarm about the dangers of Obamacare.
adlib 7 days ago
Harleigh, it worked for the U.S during Occupy Wall Street.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Ad–that Daily Show segment was so funny. Especially when the “death panel” woman got up and walked off. I think Klepper’ s question absolutely gobsmacked her!
glenn

7 days ago
true kes. Why do you think we call it ‘tourist season’ when people come visit here in the winter. You are far more likely to be robbed or shot by a cop than a mugger or gang banger.
Harleigh

Fantastic! Thanks so much for posting that, AdLib. I’ve been meaning to rub some noses in this good Obamacare news and this is the perfect way to do it!
kesmarn

Ad, damn the embargo of good US comedy to Australia!
pinkpantheroz

glenn – She knew she was about to be slapped down…again! They destroyed her in a previous interview with her.
adlib 7 days ago
Beatlex, I’m not so sure ISIS doesn’t have some of our funny business when it comes to those types of weapons. You know much of their equipment has been taken from the Iraqi forces, forces we trained, equipped, and funded. No telling what they have.
monicaangela

7 days ago
Kes, additionally, all of the big insurance companies that shunned being on the exchange are mostly now getting on it
funksands

7 days ago
Kes – Glad you like it! Props to them for making this point so strongly and entertainingly!
adlib 7 days ago
Ad–After being destroyed once, you would think she wouldn’t agree to a second interview. However…the definition of insanity and all that…

This has turned out to be gold for the insurance companies, funk!

Isis has destroyed most of the tanks and M1’s they captured, because they can’t service or fuel them

monicaangela

Kes for sure. They knew this too, but a lot of them wanted to wait and see until reasonable enrollment targets (including the young) got hit.

Funksands, yes they have friends who claim to be enemies all over the ME. Many of them are ex Sunni military.

adlib 7 days ago
A friend and one of my doctors is a Muslim leader of his local Mosque- he has had a rough time with his own Moque becaue he is so outspoken about the danger radical militant jihadism poses to mainline Islam. I see this much more clearly today.

Murph–I’m back and to answer your question. There IS hope of a Senate and Governor upset here in GA. However…there is an organization here called The New Georgia Project that has been working for months to register minority voters. Quite successfully, I might add. They have registered about 85,000new voters. But… since we have a republican SOS, who is responsbile for certifying these voters, he has issued a subpoena accusing the organization of “voter fraud”. He has asked the organization to turn over all “documents” to him. No one knows what documents he is referring to, because the organization has turned over all the voter registration forms to him, so he can then certify which ones can then be registered. This is state law, that ALL forms be turned in, even the bogus ones, as long as they are signed. It is up to the SOS to root out the fraud. And, it’s not “voter fraud” if they haven’t voted yet. Anyway, IF these 85,000 people are certified to vote, or even most of them, then the republicans have a real problem on their hands. Hence, the subpeona. What’s a republican to do?

Murph–my biggest question is…will the SOS certify these voters in time? The deadline for registering to vote in the midterms here in GA is October 6th, which is not too far away. I also think that is a huge reason for the subpeona; but I don’t understand how the SOS can neglect his job, no matter from whom the forms came.

Monica and Sabreen–that official you’re talking about was complaining because one county in GA had voted to have Sunday voting for the midterms. Only one Sunday, but still. Then two more counties have followed suit. The demographics of the original county were mostly minority, of course, and the repub was complaining that churches and shoppers (one precinct is close to a mall) would be “busing” people into vote. He also said that he wanted “educated” voters, not shoppers, implying that the people in that precinct were not educated. Also, see my reply to Murph (above) regarding our SOS subpeoning a group that has registered 85,000 minority voters.
