Howdy everyone – be sure to check in when you arrive or no eggnog for you! Hope you can stop by, AdLib. Not a holiday party without you!

Ahem – in keeping with the ‘themes’ of the past few days, we ARE speaking of ‘enhanced eggnog’ of course…
choicelady

7 days ago
‘Evening, CL and AdLib (if you’re still here). A cup of enhanced eggnog to you. What do you think my t-shirt should say? I think I should “honor” the dickster and go with “Up your nose with a rubber hose.” What do you think?
glenn

7 days ago
Evening, glenn – lovely to see you! Here’s your cuppa eggnog. I love your T-shirt slogan indeed! How’s life in the Deep South tonight?
choicelady

7 days ago
glenn – may I add that I think your T-shirt slogan is in far better taste than what the dickster actually approved. Kudos, dear friend.
choicelady

‘Afternoon, Everybody. Eggnog????? In mid Summer? Believe it or not, the Aussies actually do the whole Winter Christmas thing here, in 100F heat!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – I would love to be in Aussieland were it not summer at Christmas. I’m way too Northern Hemisphere for that. How are you?
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–Well, considering where the dickster’s nose is, because that where his face is, there’s really not much difference is there? But thanks for the kudos. And, it’s too damn cold here in the deep south. But now that the cold weather has settled in for winter, I’ll be complaining about the cold for the next couple of months, so you can feel free to ignore me when I complain about the weather. Only when I complain about the weather, mind you.
glenn

7 days ago
Hi, CL, doing OK. Lots of tragedy in Australia right now. but we’re getting over it.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
glenn – LOL!! We have copious rain, we NEED the rain, and yes, we’re still complaining about it! One is never happy.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hey PPO! Hope you kept your cool in the heat!
glenn

7 days ago
hi all
Harleigh

7 days ago
PPO – tomorrow I’m joining Muslims in memory and anguish over what has happened there. YOU will be in my heart.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hey Harleigh–how are you?
glenn

7 days ago
Hey, glenn, aircon on full. no probs
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hi Harleigh! How are you?
choicelady

7 days ago
PPO – if you can turn the A/C up full tilt, do you pretend it’s northern winter on Christmas?
choicelady

7 days ago
Thanks, CL. #Illridewithyou
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hangin inthere. rough week for the aussies. WTH?
Harleigh

7 days ago
PPO–I was so sorry to hear of the tragedy in your beautiful country.
glenn

7 days ago
We are adopting and embracing #illridewith you. Bless you all for that!
choicelady

7 days ago
hi CL. good trip?
Harleigh

7 days ago
CL, nah, you need a Cold Store to do that, and I don’t happen to have one right now!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
harleigh – yes, good trip. But glad as all get out to be home.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hi, Harleigh, SLM
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO–Can you tell me more about #Illridewithyou?
glenn

7 days ago
Hi SLM! Harleigh and SLM – there is ‘enhanced eggnog’ awaiting you.
choicelady

7 days ago
mmmmm egg nog…..
Harleigh

7 days ago
Hey SLM–how’s it going?
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh – ENHANCED eggnog…
choicelady

7 days ago
Hi all, and yummy egg nog…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
CL it will pair nicely with my most splendid smoke. LOL
Harleigh

7 days ago
I need a vote 0 do we enhance the eggnog with brandy or rum or something else?
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh–is that a cuban smoke?
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh – and a puff, puff, puff, pass to you…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn, it started the day of the gostage crisis. A muslim lady in Adelaide was on a bus and took off her hijab to avoid any abuse. The person beside her told her to put it back on and said she would walk with her to keep her safe. A Sydney woman heard about this and, because transpoert was snarled in Sydney, offered anybody who needed a ride home , Muslim or not. Then #illridewithyou went global.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hiya Glenn – finally feeling the holiday spirit and you?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
PPO – can you tell us more about #illridewith you?
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–Depends on what the something else is.
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – YOUR call, dear heart!
choicelady

7 days ago
Sorry about the sperlng.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO! LOL!
choicelady

7 days ago
Pink – this has been an awful week for the innocent
sillylittleme

7 days ago
LOL I think its like good hand tended non tobacco.
Harleigh

7 days ago
PPO-That’s a wonderful heartwarming story, and perfect for the season of peace and goodwill toward men and women.
glenn

7 days ago
SLM – tomorrow the Muslim and interfaith communities in Sacramento are holding a vigil for all who have died so horrifically. It’s all we can do. It’s what we MUST do.
choicelady

7 days ago
SLM, so right. But it seems that the locals are pushing back against the Taliban and ISIL at last.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO – out of the horror, at least this has come.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–Isn’t rum traditional for eggnog?
glenn

7 days ago
BRB
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
yep, and cinamon
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – brandy is my ‘go to’ for ‘enhancement’.
choicelady

7 days ago
I like it with dark rum and cloc
sillylittleme

7 days ago
clove
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Harleigh – nutmeg.
choicelady

7 days ago
SLM – CLOVE? wow never did that.
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh–I love cinnamon, too. And nutmeg, too. Could do without the clove, please.
glenn

7 days ago
cl – go lightly
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – we are letting YOU pour your ‘enhancement’.
choicelady

7 days ago
cl – ahhh… currently smoking mine smiling_imp
sillylittleme

7 days ago
So – does anyone see a connection between the Taliban horrors and the shooting of young, Black men in the US? I think I do, but I’d like your take on it.
choicelady

7 days ago
SLM – LOL!
choicelady

7 days ago
uh folks… if we put all that stuff in a quart of eggnog and 2 quarts of 100 proof booze the I think we just made a concoction for a bomb!
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – shhhhh. The RW is watching us!
choicelady

7 days ago
cl – just the nsa
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM try a toke of this—–
Harleigh

7 days ago
cl – a connection or a correlation?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – they actually aren’t. But I have been hacked by the extremists at work, so they’re whom I fear!
choicelady

7 days ago
SLM – that is one of those questions the answer to which eludes me.
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–For many years now, people on the left have been saying how much like the taliban our right wingers are. Yes, I see a connection. What I see is we have lost our humanity–our empathy for fellow human beings. It’s the constant harping on “the others” that really sets the stage for this kind of behavior by our police. All black people are criminals, just as all Muslims are bad.
glenn

7 days ago
I am more worried by the RWNJ nazis and torturers than anything in the ME
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – BAM. That is EXACTLY what I think is the common denominator.
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh – I agree, but PPO and Pakistanis have reason to fear them both!
choicelady

7 days ago
glenn – spot on
sillylittleme

7 days ago
PPO – is #illridewith you actually producing real action? It makes me cry when I see the name – it’s so wonderful!
choicelady

7 days ago
Hello Planeteers!
sabreen60

7 days ago
Hey Sabreen – I seeeeee you!
choicelady

7 days ago
Sabreen – come on down. We have ‘enhanced eggnog’ with rum or brandy or something from Harleigh to smoke. All up to you.
choicelady

7 days ago
We have to change it from home of the brave to home of the depraved… re: torture
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Harleigh–I think it’s all connected. But, the constant harping on “the others” is so reminiscent of the nazis, it makes my skin crawl. I had a two-day “conversation” with a right winger this week who would not admit that if it’s wrong for terrorists to torture; it’s wrong for the US to torture.
glenn

7 days ago
Hi Sabreen
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey everyone!
funksands

7 days ago
Hi Funk
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM – I so respect PBO for releasing this report, along with Dianne Feinstein et al. who usually isn’t this principled.
choicelady

7 days ago
FUNK! Come on down – we have ‘enhanced eggnog’ and anything you wish to smoke, the latter thanks to Harleigh.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hey Sabreen, hey funk. How are you both?
glenn

7 days ago
CL – I feel like being greedy. I’ll take a little of everything smiling_imp
sabreen60

7 days ago
Sabreen – ’tis the season. Anything you like is fine with us.
choicelady

7 days ago
cl – they need to set precedent by taking action
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Well that’s might kind of you…
funksands

7 days ago
glenn and all – doing well for a foxy-old-broad blush
sabreen60

7 days ago
Sabreen–good to hear.
glenn

7 days ago
Sabren – just had a photo taken for re=registering as a lobbyist. Horrifying how old I looked! Not even foxy!
choicelady

7 days ago
Glenn, doing pretty well. Crazy times, but that’s okay
funksands

7 days ago
cl – I very much doubt that
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Choice, have you ever thought of having that tattoo removed?
funksands

7 days ago
I see kes and Murph are in the house!
choicelady

7 days ago
Hi all.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Hi Murph
sillylittleme

7 days ago
funk – you mean the one on my forehead? You think that’d help?
choicelady

7 days ago
funk–so have a little enhanced eggnog, vent a little, and maybe it won’t seem so crazy.
glenn

7 days ago
Hey, kids! How’s your weekend starting?
kesmarn

7 days ago
Just give it some thought
funksands

7 days ago
Hey Murph, Hey Kes
glenn

7 days ago
Hi kes, Murph – lovely to have you here. Eggnog in all varieties awaits you at your pleasure.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hi Kes – very pleasant and yours
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hiya Murph!
sabreen60

7 days ago
cl – is harleigh out of the chronic?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I shattered a giant bottle of gin in my car today. Could’ve have started better
funksands

7 days ago
I think I’m finally getting a grip on the Christmas shopping…
kesmarn

7 days ago
And kes – how goes it?
sabreen60

7 days ago
Kes–always a good start to the weekend with VOX.
glenn

7 days ago
funk – gin? Why in the car?
choicelady

7 days ago
glenn – hear, hear
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM chronic?
Harleigh

7 days ago
Funk, if you get pulled over that aroma is gonna cause you to do a little ‘splainin’
kesmarn

7 days ago
CL, YES! #Illridewithyou is camenting relations with all moderate Muslims. they even cooperated with the police during the seige and gave details of the gunman and the fact that he had been ostracized by the mainstream. He was the equivalent of the WestboroBaptist mob, sending vile letters to the families of deceased Army guys in Afghanistan.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Costco run for a holiday party this weekend. Lucky the other bottles didn’t break
funksands

7 days ago
Ahh, CL I bet you’re a knock-out!
sabreen60

7 days ago
harleigh – never heard that term?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
You know whats awesome? I called Costco and told them what happened and they’re going to replace it for me no charge.
funksands

7 days ago
PPO – oh wow, that is WONDERFUL! Good for them. Good for all of YOU.
choicelady

7 days ago
Sabreen – thank you, dear. I’m…OK.
choicelady

7 days ago
Doing well, Sabreen. How about yourself? And Howdy to glenn and anyone else I may have missed there…
kesmarn

7 days ago
funk – that’s pretty amazing of Costco!
choicelady

7 days ago
May I offer a word of explanation to one and all….I have been spending a lot of time at another site- a new one- helping them to get up and running. My absence from the Planet has been for lack of time.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
I think I’ll try that with Costco… “I – uh – broke this bottle of gin…”
kesmarn

7 days ago
SLM – nope, whatsit meann?? LOL
Harleigh

7 days ago
funk/cl – that’s how businesses should treat their customers
sillylittleme

7 days ago
harleigh – just what you think it means…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
PPO–I swear, if my kids weren’t here, I’d move to Australia in a heartbeat. What a civilized country! I used to think people in my country had empathy for each other, but I lost more and more hope for my fellow Americans every day. Present company excepted, of course.
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – can you let us know what’s going on and how to access it? ALL good sites deserve our attention!
choicelady

7 days ago
SLM, doesn’t happen much anymore
funksands

7 days ago
Murph… are you lending aid and comfort to the competition? 😆
kesmarn

7 days ago
glenn – that’s why Canada is on my radar – civilized behavior toward others.
choicelady

7 days ago
BTW watch Speakers Corner on Dec 21. Those of you who read my article on Dad asked about my Mom. Well, I’ve something in the pipeline. It’s a video. Sorry if it is a bit long, but I hope you all enjoy.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
funk – you can say that again
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Looking forward to that very much, PPO!
kesmarn

7 days ago
CL–Canada, too.
glenn

7 days ago
PPO – I will love to see the video. Your article was amazing.
choicelady

7 days ago
Glenn, Aussies have a dark side too. But otherwise you are correct. Wonderful country and people
funksands

7 days ago
Pink, looking forward to it! I really enjoyed your last offering.
funksands

7 days ago
The site is called Yabberz….very differnt from the Planet. I like it but for different reasons than I like the Planet.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
funk – don’t we all have a dark side? But the US should be the last nation to carry it to extremes. We need to deal – REALLY deal – with our heritage of violence against people of color.
choicelady

7 days ago
Murph–is it up and running now? Can you give us a little more info?
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – thanks – is it up yet?
choicelady

7 days ago
murph – I really had a hard time navigating it the couple of times I visited
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Anyone see PBO’s presser today?
sabreen60

7 days ago
Sabreen – nope. Missed it but heard really good things about it.
choicelady

7 days ago
sabreen – recap please
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Thanks, glenn. Of course, Australia has its share of RWNJs and bigots, but they are pulling their heads in just now. Come on Down Under and I’ll throw another shrimp on the barbie for you!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
funk–I thought the whole idea of being human was to overcome your dark side, not pander to it. That’s what seems to be happening right now here.
glenn

7 days ago
PPO – be right down. Nothing I like more than shrimp on the barbie!
choicelady

7 days ago
Yabberz.com is in beta and as SLM points out navigating is tricky. It is unlike any other site because it is not article based but comment based. I plan to split my time between Yabberz and Planet with a little Daily Kos once the site is stabilized.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Sabreen–the one where he called on only women and the foxbots’ heads exploded?
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn, you would think
funksands

7 days ago
glenn – is this the last gasp of people who desire separatism? I sure hope so.
choicelady

7 days ago
cl – may it spread worldwide
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph, “comment based”? Does it collect comments from other sites and then post it on its own site? Explain a bit
funksands

7 days ago
Fox right now is having a discusion on “The Year of the Emperor”- they are freaked out about Obama not knuckling under.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
PPO–for sure, if I decide to go to Australia again, you’ll be first on the list to know. Second will be a friend with whom I taught in Guatemala. Still in touch with her sparadocally, would definitely look her up after you!
glenn

7 days ago
murph – they are obviously insane
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph, not bad for “an incompetent lightweight who is in over his head”.
funksands

7 days ago
glenn – ahhhh – that explains the COMMENTS I heard on MSNBC about women in the media. I think that rocks! I got trashed by a local political reporter for asking a politician questions at the local Press Club. So the biases are far and wide.
choicelady

7 days ago
Funk….it is a lot like the Planet in that main articles are generated by members but a point and activity algorithm keeps the most active conversions at the top of the threads and it has a very pliable navigation system. The two folks putting this together are brilliant when it comes to coding.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Over at Crooks and Liars, they keep insisting that PBO is a lightweight.
choicelady

7 days ago
It was really good. First of all he called on ALL women. The guys on the front row threw a hissy fit after the presser. The press secy released a statement that women are often over looked although they cover the President day in and day out. He did not call on ONE TV “journalist” blush The topics covered were Cuba, Sony, Torture Report, Race etc. I think you may be able to watch it over at the Obama Diary. I cannot begin to do it justice. Lets just say he dropped serveral mics today.
sabreen60

7 days ago
CL, really? Odd
funksands

7 days ago
Sabreen – HOORAY for this president!!!
choicelady

7 days ago
Murph–I think that our rwnj brigade thought that PBO would quake in his boots because of the midterms. I’m glad to see him come out swinging.
glenn

7 days ago
funk – yup. I am a member of the press club, and the old grump can’t stand me because I make points that leave his mouth hanging open. Not pretty I might add…
choicelady

7 days ago
CL–Nothing like women doing the exact same thing me do to make some men’s heads explode, right?
glenn

7 days ago
I think Obama is going to spend the next two years in very sophisticated pay back. The media and GOP and cowardly dems better get used to it.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Sorry guys, but I gotta go and get the comestibles for Christmas. Please be safe and healthy over the Christmas . Oh, I’ll answer anything you want to ask after you watch the video. There will be quite a few, like “How did they do the special effects of Dad only having 3 fingers in the ‘Bounty” scene with Marlon. All will be revealed! ‘bye for now
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
It would be a wonderful thing if anonymous or wikileaks would publish the entire un-redacted 6,800 page CIA Torture report. Talk about putting a light on cockroaches! Put a cash bounty on the identified heads of all the torturer cowards! Publish their names and addresses with pictures including their famblys also too! Cowardly unmerikan asshats.

Harleigh

7 days ago
Sabreen – I heard he said that he thought what Sony did was unnecessary
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn- that is spot on. How DARE the president treat women as equals!
choicelady

7 days ago
Sabreen, I like this new and feisty Obama. It’s going to be an interesting next two years. When he talks about not caving to bullies, he’s talking about more than Kim Jong-un.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Gosh, I hope his press conference doesn’t make the MSM cover him poorly.
funksands

7 days ago
SO long PPO and Happy Holidays to you and yoiurs.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Happy Holidays Pink
sillylittleme

7 days ago
That would be a stark contrast to the kid gloves they’ve used so far, funk.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Harleigh, so the summary is still the only thing that’s been released?
funksands

7 days ago
PPO – happy hols to you and yours! Have a lovely and joyous time. Great to see you and hope you’re here next week!
choicelady

7 days ago
Happy Holidays, PPO!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Night PPO Merry Christmas to you. Looking forward to your video.
glenn

7 days ago
Kes, I’d hate to see the 6 years of measured, sober coverage of the President suffer because of today
funksands

7 days ago
Funk thats all we get is a redacted summary that makes little sense.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – that’s pretty heavy stuff, thank you!
choicelady

7 days ago
Hmmmm
funksands

7 days ago
Exactly, funk. He should be a little more deferential to the people who’ve treated him so kindly.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Harleigh – I think you can get the whole report via some Congressional offices?
choicelady

7 days ago
funk–me too. Because you know how left leaning that ole MSM is! sunglasses
glenn

7 days ago
kes – LOL! Yes, this president needs to be more kind to his detractors!
choicelady

7 days ago
It was interesting watching the MSM folks see the women print journalists get respect from the President and so obviously snub them.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Funk you made a funny stuck_out_tongue You know the MSM refused to cover his ACA speech and another one (can’t remember right now). I hope he never calls on them again.
sabreen60

7 days ago
The MSM can go fuck itself
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Sabreen – that’s a very good point! I hope he shorts them for the next two years, too!
choicelady

7 days ago
I loved the way he only responded to questions from women. Quite a contrast from the way women are usually treated by so many pudnuts.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Anyone know if the press conf. is online anywhere?
choicelady

7 days ago
Al Jazeera America has a story tonight that inquiries to the WH press office about the manuver at the Press Conference have been met with the President intends to communicate with those whose record of honesty merits special attention.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
You know its funny, I watched the whole thing and didn’t realize any of this until afterward.
funksands

7 days ago
I almost choked CL… the repubs are now nazi’s! It’s in their platform! They are admitting and defending torture. It’s probably all obamas fault and all those uppity young black men getting themselves killed!
Harleigh

7 days ago
Sabreen, do you think the MSM will refuse to air the State of the Union address? Wouldn’t surprise me.
kesmarn

7 days ago
“Yes, you in the back; Sports Illustrated”
funksands

7 days ago
Count on Al Jazeera to speak to the ISSUE.
choicelady

7 days ago
Choice…at MSNBC you might be able to see it.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
murph – if that’s true, then kudos to him.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Harleigh- it was only a matter of time before they ‘came out of the closet’ on their affinity.
choicelady

7 days ago
Kes- Obama is in news making mode and he will be a hot ticket for SOTU.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Here’s an example of how “left-leaning” the msm is. When Dianne Feinstein was on CNN, wolf blitzer asked her, “Don’t you think the RELEASE of this torture report puts American lives at risk?” Yet when the dickster was on mtp, no one asked him how many American lives he put at risk with the ACTUAL torture! Bunch of douchebags!
glenn

7 days ago
Murph and the women actually asked news worthy questions, for the most part. At the end of the presser some guy hollered “have you made any resolutions” – a really important question to ask. Actually the problem I have the WHPC is that they have become infortainers and self absored, IMO.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Murph – I’ll take a look.
choicelady

7 days ago
harleigh – those criminals, those thugs, of which none of them were
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Good point, glenn!
kesmarn

7 days ago
You tell ’em Glenn. I like this side of you.
funksands

7 days ago
glenn – excellent point!
choicelady

7 days ago
Any nation that defends it interests via torture is not a nation worth defending.
funksands

7 days ago
kes – if wouldn’t surprise me either.
sabreen60

7 days ago
funk – AMEN!
choicelady

7 days ago
funk – that’s at least one of our founding principles or was it?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Murph–The President began his press conference by saying that his press secretary (his name eludes me) had given him a list of who had been naughty or nice. And that’s why he called on the women.
glenn

7 days ago
funk – adding — charging them with treason would be appropriate
sillylittleme

7 days ago
funk and all – the ONLY point to torture, historically and today, is to incite major fear of the aggressor. It has nothing to do with ‘getting truth’ which is does not do.
choicelady

7 days ago
glenn – that’s cute
sillylittleme

7 days ago
CL – It’s almost like they reprinted Mein Kampf translated to bagerese.
Harleigh

7 days ago
glenn – that’s funny! Good list of good folks – and the ones deserving coal (ash)…
choicelady

7 days ago
Harleigh – laughing laughing laughing laughing laughing
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM, absolutely. Individual prosecution via Nuremburg-style trial at the UN would be a good start in scrubbing the blood stains from our hands.
funksands

7 days ago
Harleigh – remember that the Dominionists of C Street actually BROUGHT unreconstructed Nazis to America, so it’s not even a stretch here.
choicelady

7 days ago
One of the best comments I heard today is that Obama intends to join with Nancy Pelosi and the Progressives in the House to deliver votes for Boehner when he makes a good deal with them since he cannot get a majority of his own caucus….and then he intends to join with Reid and Warren to make sure his vetos are upheld.
murphthesurf3

Murph OT – but did you read the statement that McCulloch gave about knowing witness # 40 was lying?

funk–thanks, and I agree with your statement. As I said before, I had this argument with a rwnj about this whole thing. Kept asking him what makes us any better than the terrorists when we torture. All we have done is to reduce ourselves to their level. These guys can’t even construct a good argument; it’s like arguing with a paper bag. In one of his replies to me, he told me that the President Obama’s “apology tour” was what made the terrorists so bold. After I ripped him a new one about the “apology tour” nonsense by pointing out that every credible news organization had labeled that meme “false”, “pants on fire”, “4 pinocchios”, I also had to point out to him that the tour he was referencing happened almost eight years after 9/11/01. They’re just so consumed with hatred, they can’t even get recent history straight, let alone history.

Murph – I seem to be alone in thinking SONY did a good thing putting people’s safety ahead of profit. Yes, I know theaters declined the film, but just in case – and you never know – they did the right thing pulling it now. I suspect they will find other ways to get it out there but LATER.

I am with you choice…in addition there were not many that were going to show it anyway…however, I want a third party to buy the film and launch it as a Pay Per View…On Demand….I think it might be a bigger hit that way than it would have been in the theater.

choicelady

funk–it would be fine with me if the gop blocked the press. Who is going to spew their hatred for them? Is it just me, or has it gotten so one-sided lately that it’s laughable? Or pathetic? Or just plain sad? How many Democrats have you seen lately pushing back at the dickster about torture? Where are the Dems? Or maybe I”m missing it because the “left-leaning” msm just doesn’t report on Dems? Funk this “new side” of me is because I’m so pissed off. And, I don’t want to be angry all the time, but one can only see the dickster so many times bragging, yes bragging, about torture before one loses it. And, yes, Sabreen, isn’t is interesting, once again, that it’s not okay for Cuba to torture, but okay for the US? I’m seriously hoping that because, lately, the republicans have been coming up against their own hypcrosy so often that the American people finally wise up and VOTE! ,
glenn

Murph – My initial thought was Sony should not have made a movie about killing a sitting head of state. If they are some other country made a movie showing PBO killed, how would we feel. Then after giving it some more thought it was WTF. Hollywood made movies ridiculing Hitler. But at any rate if Sony was bold enough to make the movie they damn well should have had the courage to stand by it and not cave.

Over on Twitter some Asian activists are calling the film ‘racist’. I am not one to wade in usually, but defending Kim Il Un (I think that’s it) is NOT a wise move here! Someone who killed a relative and fed him to pigs is so sick it’s not racist at all to call him OUT.

Murph and Sabreen – that is all worth thinking about, but until we can get a handle on who is REALLY behind the threats, for the moment, caution seems wise. I cannot abide the idea of more deaths no matter who is doing it. Once we figure it out, I think we can relax more and return to the issues of free expression, but they are NOT at the moment my first priority. Preventing harm IS.
