    LOL, makingout — not too “familiar” with my comments, are you?

    “You’re going to make the election about abortion!” Casone shouted back to Starnes. “Something [that’s been legal] since Roe v. Wade. You really want to go all the way back to that debate when there are so many other issues facing this country? That’s the election you want to have in 2016?”
    If the election is about PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION, who wins, then?

    Yup — and this is a very interesting and great example of the phenomenon.
    Regarding the munition disposal, though: why can’t they use that explosive power for some useful purpose? (sort of a non-nuclear “Operation Plowshare”)

    “many people of faith have wondered from the word”
    I would bet that “wandered” was said there.

    “Smart people who didn’t want their familiar put under the media spotlight wouldn’t run.”
    Well . . . isn’t a “familiar” an animal that is an associate of a witch or a wizard?
    Frankly, I would never vote for a witch or a wizard no matter WHAT the background was of their familiar.

    True.
    “The Nazi’s and their barbarity was aired publicly”
    But that was not during the Hitler regime. Similarly, Planned Parenthood’s barbarity isn’t what the Obama regime wants to have made public.

    Krauthammer really reached on this one to label it “hypocrisy”

    @ MKFlyboy
    It is as if the reporting on Bernie Madoff was something like: “How will this affect his social life?”

    “amnesty” is a euphemism
    if it were mere “amnesty”, then they wouldn’t be punished for breaking the law
    BUT that is not what is meant by “amnesty” in this context.
    Instead, what is called “amnesty” is actually a REWARD for law-breaking

    Yes, CT, you are referring to the “Samson Option”
    From Wikipedia:
    The Samson Option: Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal and American Foreign Policy is a 1991 book by Seymour Hersh. It details the history of Israel’s nuclear weapons program and its effects on Israel-American relations. The “Samson Option” of the book’s title refers to the nuclear strategy whereby Israel would launch a massive nuclear retaliatory strike if the state itself was being overrun, just as the Biblical figure Samson is said to have pushed apart the pillars of a Philistine temple, bringing down the roof and killing himself and thousands of Philistines who had gathered to see him humiliated.
    BUT as foo notes: Israel would never do something like that unless it is a “final move”.
    With Iran and its “Twelvers”, an offensive strike would be a first move to bring on a cataclysmic series of events and the return of the “Mahdi”

    Sorry, but Cruz is smart, honest, and correct on the issues.
    That makes him an “extremist” — so he is unelectable.

    Churchill:
    I remember when I was a child, being taken to the celebrated Barnum’s Circus, which contained an exhibition of freaks and monstrosities, but the exhibit on the program which I most desired to see was the one described as “The Boneless Wonder”. My parents judged that the spectacle would be too demoralizing and revolting for my youthful eye and I have waited fifty years, to see The Boneless Wonder sitting on the Treasury Bench.
    Winston Churchill
    On Ramsay MacDonald

  • [17] July 26, 2015 at 4:32pm

    Cruz’s talk reminds me of Churchill’s “Boneless Wonder” speech.
    Oh and regarding “utah real conservatives want [Hatch] out!!!!!!”
    I got a call from Dan Jones & Associates yesterday.
    I rated Lee as “very favorable” and Hatch as “very unfavorable” (the poll was really about moving the prison from Bluffdale, though)

    There are a LOT of black snakes.
    Black adder may refer to either of two classifications of snake:

    Vipera berus, a venomous viper species found in Europe and Asia
    Heterodon platirhinos, a non-venomous snake found in the United States

    (thanks, Wikipedia)

    Odds are that Abe Foxman is totally OK with the Iranians getting nukes (and getting paid 150 Billion in the process).
    He might as well be head of the DNC.

    Wrongful death, too.
    The duty of care for custodial situations is very high.
    They knew (or should have known) that she was suicidal — and they had a garbage bag in the cell.
    Big time liability, but for negligence — not brutality.

    easy, Fatheroftwo
    “adda” reminds of an “adder”
    So, you subliminally can get a “black adder”
    Snakes “lie about” on the ground, too.
    So you get the idea of a black adder lying about on the ground.

    How about the eBay backstory?
    “My fiancee wanted to sell her Pez collection, so I started eBay.”
    A total fabrication — and they admitted it finally.

    “as soon as government tries to fix capitalism, its no longer capitalism”
    Yup — and government made its first giant attempt to “fix” it back in 1913 with the Federal Reserve.

    “hostage/prisoner exchanges”
    Usually not an “exchange” — we just give up spies & terrorists (sometimes we might get back a deserter or an idiot backpacker who can’t read a map).
