We got 6th in the world Champs with her.
pinkpantheroz

Yes PPO, I remember your describing that! You didn’t post the actual link so it appears in my comment right after yours.
adlib 7 days ago
The image of the Pink Panther that is. Quite and achievement!
adlib 7 days ago
Where’s the ‘post’ command in the edit page?

sillylittleme

7 days ago
I hope he gets killed by a big load of dinosaur shit.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Hey slm! I’m very happy about the marriage equality rulings but I thought that was inevitable. The Voter ID laws though, I’m surprised the RW on the SCOTUS didn’t get enough votes to keep them in place.
adlib 7 days ago
Only 3!!!!!!!!!
Harleigh

7 days ago
I would have bet 5 -4
Harleigh

7 days ago
ad – Pat Robertson is a buffoon still shilling for the lord (who he perceives himself to be)…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Harleigh – Can’t recall which state it is but one state for sure won’t count absentee votes without also going through a Voter ID process.
adlib 7 days ago
harleigh – my 90 year old mom votes in your county, she’ll be supporting Crist…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM I meant to thank you on your music esp 2 of my favs, Laura Branigan – Gloria and KC – Boogie shoes! Love those tunes.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – Agreed, I would have thought 5-4 too! Some SCOTUS judge took his prozac!
adlib 7 days ago
harleigh – Laura died so young and well who doesn’t get up and boogie for kc…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I loved Laura…. almost as much as you LMAO
Harleigh

7 days ago
ad – maybe there is more behind the scene that we would know if they would deliberate in public…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
harleigh – why do the good always seem to die young, but pure evil lasts forever?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I wish I had that answer.
Harleigh

7 days ago
slm, wish I could see the expression on Pat Robertson’s face when he realizes he’s just died and Satan is shaking his hand.
adlib 7 days ago
I wanna see his face when he gets fucking swallowed by jebus’ dinosaur!! muhahaha
Harleigh

7 days ago
ad – I doubt there’ll be handshaking more like hot poker time…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
hi glenn – how was your week?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm – I sure am curious about what the deliberations were on Voter ID and which of the Fecal Five on the SCOTUS grew a nub of a consceince.
adlib 7 days ago
roberts was one!!!
Harleigh

7 days ago
Howdy everyone!
glenn

7 days ago
ad – If I had to guess, I’ll go with Roberts and one of his two faces
sillylittleme

Maybe Satan will welcome Pat Robertson to hell by forcing him to marry Hitler.

Hey AdLib, how are you?
glenn

isn’t it a poke in the eye for the Taliban that Malala got the Nobel Prize? Shows that not all Muslims are feral fundamentalists!
pinkpantheroz

Pat in a 3way with saddam and hitler. perfect.
Harleigh

7 days ago
So…here in the peachtree state, the SOS has “lost” over 4000 voter registrations. Hmmm….need I mention he’s a republican?
glenn

Glenn, Spring horse racin carnival on now. At least its a change from the endless Aussie Football!
pinkpantheroz

PPO–Hmmm, I thought so!
glenn

Hey KT!
adlib 7 days ago
Ad–good one–ask PPO if they’re also furious!
glenn

7 days ago
BTW I had my wife’s permission to say that!
pinkpantheroz

Hey folks! BRB! I just checked to see if I could log in now. I had problems earlier.

Hey, KT. Glad you’re about.

adlib 7 days ago
ad – for total liar
sillylittleme

7 days ago
he is the nozzle
Harleigh

7 days ago
Ad, yes! What a useless cretin to bit POTUS’ hand
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad–what is this with piling on the President lately?
glenn

7 days ago
glenn November is almost here!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hey Murph, are you really here?
glenn

7 days ago
I think it’s a ploy.
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – when did it stop? this is just more of the same benghazi
sillylittleme

7 days ago
hey murph
Harleigh

7 days ago
hey murph – are you going to the rally in ferguson this weekend?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM–you’re right. I meant “piling on” by Dems.
glenn

glenn – they are running for office and pulling an al gore all the way
sillylittleme

7 days ago
hey kes
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – The President’s numbers are down, Leon is pushing his book and like all douche’s is trying to create controversy to sell his book. Hey, can he also be nominated for Most Unsupporting in a Prostituting Role? Add to that he is a close Clinton crony and carrying water for them by trying to seperate Obama from the “smart” Clintonites.
adlib 7 days ago
SLM–I truly don’t get it. There are so many good things that Dems can run on; the deficit is down, Obamacare is working; unemployment is at a level lower than mittromney said he would get it; yet Dems seem to be running away from allthat!
glenn

7 days ago
Hello from me in mesoure…..
murphthesurf3

hey murph
Harleigh

7 days ago
Hey Murph! How are things in MO…or Larry or Curly for that matter.
adlib 7 days ago
glenn – don’t get it, perhaps they too realize that the reagan revolution is about to end…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey, SLM and friends! Was just skimming earlier comment to catch up. How is everyone?
kesmarn

7 days ago
Ad–I would cast my vote for panetta to be nominated for Most Unsupporting in a Prostituting Role. I don’t care how much of a Clintonite you are; President Obama can’t run again, so why not support him?
glenn

Hello Planeteers!

Hi sabreen
Harleigh

7 days ago
hi kes! lol
Harleigh

7 days ago
Hey Sabreen!
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – It’s definitely misguided but very much based on the narrow issue of Obama’s approval numbers. They’re low so the moronic Dems out there are running away from any connection to his policies…which include some very good things going on. It’s so stupid. Kind of like when Gore ran away from all the great economic news under Clinton.
adlib 7 days ago
harleigh – did you see about the turtle’s interview with the most popular sports radio jock?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey Sabreen!
adlib 7 days ago
no
Harleigh

7 days ago
harleigh – he had a coakley/schilling moment…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad–maybe I”m naive, but isn’t it the Dems “responsibility” to help get the President’s approval ratings up? That way, they have a strong platform on which to run. SMH
glenn

7 days ago
Ad…things are not good here…..I feel like St Louis and its innter suburbs are on the edge of a precipice….there is so much anger…so much hatred…so much fear….
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Rumor has it that Panetta’s job is to distance Hillary from the Prez on policy and set her up for her own run.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Harleigh – I’ve really become a bit disappointed in the pandering that Grimes has been doing, refusing to even say that she voted for Obama. Yes, there are a lot of KY folks who are that small minded, that such things would alienate them from voting for her but they’re already voting for Turtle Poop anyway.
adlib 7 days ago
I would like to see mitch in front of Hope Solo giving her his conescending smarmy view on women…. just before she knocke his fuckin haid off.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Hey Kes–but where would Hillary be without President Obama nominating her for SOS?
glenn

7 days ago
Good question, glenn.
kesmarn

7 days ago
glenn – You’re not naive at all, you’re just a loyal, big picture thinker. These Dems are so small minded and are paving a path to their defeat, thinking they’re protecting themselves. They won’t win by hiding their Dem membership in a sock drawer, they’ll win by putting it on and touting all the good Dems have done and want to do.
adlib 7 days ago
murph – you don’t think the weekend rally will help?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad–I’m disappointed in Grimes lately, too. However, she’s still miles ahead of the turtle.
glenn

7 days ago
I am praying to baby jebus for a Palin-Bachmann ticket. come git yer screech on.
Harleigh

SLM…the several rallies and marches will not help to soothe the growing sense that Wilson will be getting away with murder.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Has Hillary been out and about supporting Dems for the Nov election?
sabreen60

7 days ago
murph – can you blame them?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Kes–thanks. This is why I have hesitation about HIllary. She does seem to be like a candle in the wind, and blows whichever way she thinks the wind is blowing.
glenn

7 days ago
Everyday there are images of police acting as bullies, and jack booted thugs…every image reinforces the anger of our crowds.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Hey, Sabreen! I haven’t seen any coverage of Hillary doing much campaigning for Dems. I think Bill has.
kesmarn

7 days ago
glenn, I read somewhere Hillary said she may be amenable to gutting some of “Obamacare”.
sabreen60

7 days ago
sabreen – she’s being a grandmom for a bit
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn, yesterday I read an article on Vox (the website) about Hillary’s senior thesis on Saul Alinsky. Had to wonder what ever happened to that younger, more progressive version of her?
kesmarn

Waht about FLipper rearing his orange face again. good or bad?

Yup!

sillylittleme

And then label it “maturing,” SLM!
kesmarn

Sabreen–It wouldn’t surprise me that Hillary would gut some of Obamacare. I think my biggest issue with her is I just don’t trust her.

SLM. It’s more the power , but the green does help!

Pink – he will always be schitt fockme to me
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph, I think the protesters have shown great restraint. I heard one young say that this is not your father’s civil rights movement. I have been saying all along, there is no MLK, Jr. The young people really aren’t in to turning the other cheek, but I think the vast majority have really been keeping it together.
sabreen60

Hey, Beatlex! How are you this Friday evening?
kesmarn

Hey Bealex–how goes it?

sillylittleme

7 days ago
hi beatlex!
Harleigh

7 days ago
and ozzie
beatlex

7 days ago
Murph – That’s what I was afraid of. The transparent agenda of McCulloch to prevent the arrest and trial of Darren Wilson is the same as pouring gasolline over the whole city. I think he may succeed with his grand jury ploy and then all hell will break loose.
adlib 7 days ago
Hey Beatlex!
adlib 7 days ago
Hiya Beatlex!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Beatlex did you have any trouble crossing the border to get here?
Harleigh

7 days ago
Sabreen and Murph–I thought the symphony protest was one of the best protests I have ever seen!
glenn

7 days ago
Had a VERY long day,working out of town
beatlex

7 days ago
Hey Kes! My browser crashed and missed you popping in! Howdy!
adlib 7 days ago
glenn – loved it, so did many of the symphony’s members
sillylittleme

7 days ago
That got airtime all over the place, glenn. And the orchestra was really sympathetic.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Missed that, dammit. Where can I check the protest out?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hey AdLib! It’s been a crashy kinda day today!
kesmarn

7 days ago
And when all hell breaks loose McCulloch’s allies will point at the crowds and say….”see, these are the kind of people who produced that thug who nearly killed a good cop.”
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
glenn, boy do I get weird stuff. I wasn’t around last week because I was in urgent care overnight. I had heard of people getting kidney stones, but I had a stone in a salavery gland. My face looked as though I had been hit by Muhammad Ali. It was awful.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Hi Beatlex!
sabreen60

7 days ago
Harleigh,I have not been to the US in many years
beatlex

7 days ago
oh geez
Harleigh

7 days ago
Ouch, Sabreen! How did they get that stone out?
kesmarn

7 days ago
Wow, Sab. Never heard of that, Sounds Nasty, but I hope you’re OK now.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO–just google Micheal Brown St. Louis symphony protest–you should get numerous hits. Of course, some other more tech savy Planeteer can probably provide with you a link.
glenn

7 days ago

sillylittleme

7 days ago
Sabreen–holy cow! Are you okay now?
glenn

7 days ago
Nah, that’s fine, glenn. I’ll check it out. It is very limiting what we get here from the US.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Kes – You said it! I need higher crash insurance, would have used up my policy tonight!
adlib 7 days ago
beatlex you’re not missing much.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Sabreen,that had to hurt,are you OK now
beatlex

7 days ago
sabreen – hope you’re feeling better
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM…I was at Powell Hall last week when the protest happened.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Murph–was it as awesome in person as it was on video?
glenn

7 days ago
murph – it must have been moving
sillylittleme

7 days ago
PPO–see I told you a Planeteer would oblige. Check out the video–it’s awesome!
glenn

7 days ago
kes, This is gross – but you asked. The next day after being pumped with antibiotics, steriods and pain mediciene, I went back to my ENT. I had a hole on the inside of my cheek. He massaged my face and the stone popped out through the hole. I had a CT scan so he knew it was in there.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Murph – Yep, but the resulting madness and the eventual trial and conviction of Wilson by the DoJ will confirm that McColloch will have blood on his hands from the violence that he is inciting and for Michael Brown who was murdered in cold blood by the police force he is protecting.
adlib 7 days ago
Yeah well we have to be more vigilant about young black men armed with, skittles, cigars and sandwiches ya know!
Harleigh

7 days ago
ad – justice will be served… eventually
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn and slm…it was very well done, the orchestra responded in kind, most of the audience was respectful and somber, the conductor waved off the ushers, the few who objected were quickly hushed…IF that spirit could be bottled then I would have no fear but I do not think it can be.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Sabreen – Holy Mackeral! That sounds awful! So sorry you had to go through that but very glad it came out and you’re on the mend.
adlib 7 days ago
Yeah, folks. I’m ok. Still taking oral antibiotics and feeling much better. That pain was awful.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Harleigh–I’m not sure about the “sandwich” defense. There was a gun found at the scene, wasn’t there? I know it could have been planted, but then again….
glenn

7 days ago
awesome murph
Harleigh

7 days ago
Just seen it, thank you all. WOW! What a powerful stand.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Sabreen, that’s kinda what I expected to hear. LOL! Not to worry about the gross factor. I am a nurse after all. (Or at least still have my license!)
kesmarn

7 days ago
Who here thinks that there will be no charges brought against the cop who killed Michael Brown? The prosecuter seems to be trying to avoid that
beatlex

7 days ago
Ad….McColloch is elected by a white population….most are angry at having lost their city, or they are now in what is now the suburbs and used to be their small town…and are angry about that.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Beatlex, surely negligent homicide, at the very least?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
He’ll get off by virtue of a planted throwaway gun.
Harleigh

7 days ago
slm – But racists and apologists like McColloch insist on a trail of violence and destruction in order to reach justice. He should be removed ASAP.
adlib 7 days ago
Murph–I did love the expression on that one woman’s face! That was priceless! Nice to know that the orchestra was respectful.
glenn

7 days ago
ad – if that were the case, the list would be very long…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – I hope her kids see it at some point and ridicule her
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Beatlex–I don’t think there will be any charges against Wilson. However, I hope once that happens, we aren’t faced with another Rodney King riot.
glenn

7 days ago
I don’t know Oz,but it seems to me the prosecuter wants no charges brought.Why was the cop allowed to testify for 4 hours? That does not happen often as far as I know
beatlex

7 days ago
Beatlex – I think the whole scheme of McCulloch taking it to a Grand Jury and stalling them for so long is to get Wilson off without any charge close to murder or manslaughter. Will he succeed? I don’t know but it’s very possible since that Grand Jury could be stacked with a lot of racist white people.
adlib 7 days ago
Beatlex, when McColloch decided to go with a grand jury rather than charging Wilson with a crime I thought that this is not going to be good. BTW, I saw some Cardinal fans with Darren Wilson signs and later someone is making t-shirts that say “We are Darren Wilson”. I guess I will never understand the mentality.
sabreen60

7 days ago
SLM–I hope her anyone who knows her ridicules her!
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn,I think you are right
beatlex

7 days ago
b – I for one would want him to answer a LOT of questions!!!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Sabreen,I saw that,it is disgusting to me
beatlex

7 days ago
More than half a million has been raised for Wilson….on line…where some of the most offensive racism can be found in print.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
sabreen most of us will never understand bagger mentality.
Harleigh

7 days ago
murph – find them all and ship them to syria…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
harleigh – hear, hear or here, here (which is more appropriate)
sillylittleme

7 days ago
That’s what I’ve been saying too, SLM. If those T-baggers are itching for a fight, let ’em go to Syria.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Murph–why is that money being raised? So far Wilson hasn’t been charged with anything, has he? So, why does he need money? Doesn’t he still have his job, too? What does he need money for? WTH is wrong with these people? That last question is a rhetorical one, BTW.
glenn

7 days ago
kes – it would help them get some perspective on the world
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph – Right, I understand that the officials are all elected by the white minority and that the blatant racism is only growing. But unless they want to learn the story first hand as to why George Custer lost The Battle of Little Big Horn, they better reconsider their hatred of the majority of people in their town.
adlib 7 days ago
glenn – spot on
sillylittleme

7 days ago
It would, SLM. And maybe a visit from Malala to Ferguson would be in order too.
kesmarn

7 days ago
ad – they don
sillylittleme

7 days ago
‘t want to acknowledge history
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I don’t know if the young man had a gun or not. But the video I saw of him in the store showed his pants damn near around his knees. Seriously, where was he carrying a gun? He had on a thin t-shirt and his pants were hanging way down on his butt.
sabreen60

7 days ago
kes – without a doubt!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
HAHAHA those baggers in a gunfight would fold like the cowards they are in less than a day. Can you just imagine one of those fatassed doughnut cops walking in the desert.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Kes – The sad thing is that Ferguson, like other particular parts of the country, have a society that resembles a 3rd World country.
adlib 7 days ago
Glenn- Go Fund Me had a defense fund on its site. It has now shut down but not before a lot of money was raised.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
‘Zactly, Harleigh! They would be crying for their momma’s within 48 hours.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Murph–so does Wilson get to keep all the money?
glenn

7 days ago
Ad….Custer lost but the white settlers won and native Americans were the big losers in the end.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
kes – I don’t think it will take that long
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Right, AdLib. Ferguson is 3rd world. Tribal white folks.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Murph–IOW–shoot an unarmed black teenager–become rich!
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn….the money goes to a fund controlled by his friends.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Harleigh – I would love to see how brave these cops would be if Ferguson citizens armed themselves like Cliven Bundy’s militia loons. And they were never tear gassed or arrested.
adlib 7 days ago
ad – but for them that was justified
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph–okay, I’ll bite. What are the friends doing with the money? Not that I feel sorry for any of the fools who donated, but what is happening with the money? Show me the money!

Murph – Not a direct match for Ferguson, in fact, just the opposite. Native Americans were on a path to having a shrinking population while the white population was booming. It’s the other way around in Ferguson, blacks are outnumbering whites so the eventual outcome after Little Bighorn would be reversed in this case.

If Obama bombs ISIS, he is doing too little too late. If he doesn’t bomb them, he is being weak and allowing them to become a greater threat to America. Sometimes there are scenarios where the choice is between bad and worse and that seems to be what we’ve got here. There are no good choices and the pudnuts are just wetting themselves being able to attack Obama no matter what he does.

You all do realize that all the buy-bull books (including Korans) that get referenced were supposedly originally ‘written’ thousands and thousands of years ago way before Anglo-Saxons even existed, by non-white Middle Eastern brown men in now dead languages and that those were not their real original names right? Matt, Mark, Luke, John and Zeke?! Yeah right. More like Abdul, Habib or Omar. Most were wandering nomadic herdsmen with even less education than a 4 year old kid in Mississippi. Those ‘original’ storybooks were written by hand in a now dead language and transcribed and rewritten and re-interpreted by hand into other now dead languages dozens of times for dozens of different religions/sects or monestaries over the past 5,000 or so years resulting in massive disinformation to control the populations of those times. I got ‘THE WORD’ from a burning bush… or Hey! A talking snake told me…. blah blah blah. Thanks for sharing your dogma though. All religions are businesses and should be taxed.

KT, I don’t think it’s the Qu’ran that’s the problem. It’s Hadith (sayings of the Prophet). There is suppose to authentic Hadith and false. Much of it cultural.

These are things that men have decided on their own.

Here’s what Reza Aslan had to say about Maher’s criticism of Islam: And I would say that the other thing that’s a little bit different is that the criticism of Islam has really crossed the line into what can only be described as frank bigotry. When he starts decrying how many babies born in Europe are named Mohammad, says things about Muslims in America “bringing that desert stuff into our world” — that is no longer just simple criticism of religious doctrine or practice. That’s a very specifically targeted animosity towards a particular group of people. You don’t see him saying things like that about other religious groups — though, again, in his defense, to him the problem is religion in general.

Just to be clear and on the record….I am a Christian Humanist….Christian humanism emphasizes the humanity of Jesus, his social teachings and his propensity to synthesize human spirituality and materialism. It regards humanist principles like universal human dignity and individual freedom and the primacy of human happiness as essential and principal components of, or at least compatible with, the teachings of Jesus. Christian humanism can be perceived as a philosophical union of Christian ethics and humanist principles. I regard Yehua bar Yusef bin Nazrit and the Siddartha Gautama, the Buddha….as the principle sources of human philosohpical enlightenment. I do not buy the mythology that surrounds either one. Muhammad is not in the same category with them.

Sabreen – Appreciate your pointing that out, extremist murders in the name of Christianity against minorities, gays, other religions were not uncommon in the US just decades ago. Pointing a finger at Islam and not recognizing this about Christianity distracts people from recognizing the true enemies in all religions, the wild eyed extremists. They’re in all religions, they’re the ones to point a finger at.

Here is the problem for Islam- the principle jihad is at its core. Modern Islam has tried to reshape this as Itajihad, the inner struggle, but for most Muslims the idea of external struggle against non believers (Muslims and Infidels alike)is the organizing principle with the f aith.

Murph – The issue here may be time. For Christianity, the barbarism of extremist Islam is a kind of “Been there, done that.” Since Christianity has gone through such a horrible phase and reformed, some now look down at Islam and say, “How could you be so awful?! I mean, we USED to be that awful but we’re not now so how can you be?” Is it maybe just the nature of these types of religions to have extremists lead it through vicious times until they are finally rejected and moderation takes over?

PRINCETON, NJ — A majority of U.S. registered voters, 53%, say they are less enthusiastic about voting than in previous elections, while 35% are more enthusiastic. This 18-percentage-point enthusiasm deficit is larger than what Gallup has measured in prior midterm election years, particularly in 2010 when there was record midterm enthusiasm. Among registered voters, 42% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents currently say they are more enthusiastic than usual about voting, while 50% are less enthusiastic, resulting in an eight-point enthusiasm deficit. But Democrats are even less enthusiastic, with a 23-point deficit (32% more enthusiastic vs. 55% less enthusiastic). Typically, the party whose supporters have an advantage in enthusiasm has done better in midterm elections. Republicans had decided advantages in enthusiasm in 1994, 2002, and especially 2010 — years in which they won control of the House of Representatives or expanded on their existing majority. Democrats had the advantage in 2006, the year they won control of the House. Neither party had a decided advantage in 1998, a year Democrats posted minimal gains in House seats. Per Gallup.

It is Holder who went to Ferguson and without HIM, the confidence in the DOJ will lag.

The problem with national statistics is that they don’t reflect regions and in the regions that matter on control of the Senate, the Repubs don’t have a lock. I don’t doubt the enthusiasm deficit hurting Dems but in competitive states, it’s not the same as in non-competitive states.
adlib 7 days ago
That’s true Musph but as long as the DoJ let’s its actions speak for it, they can overcome the concerns. If Wilson is charged by the DoJ, they will be more confident.

We will see. You are always much more optimistic than I am and you have been much more accurate than I….so I hope you are right now.
