20 This article is old and kind of silly (since #IceCreamGate wasn't on the day itself), and the Republicans did similar with their gay #memday Bush 43 coffee mugs. Arguably what the Republicans did was even more tone-deaf.

Anyway here is what Obama actually did say today:
Hi, everybody. This weekend is Memorial Day-a time to pay tribute to all our men and women in uniform who've ever given their lives so that we can live in freedom and security. This year, the holiday is especially meaningful. It's the first Memorial Day since our war ended in Afghanistan.

30 Maybe eating ice cream is this way of saluting the fallen corpse men?

I mean, he is a liberal, and their culture, values and traditions are alien to us.

But remember, all cultures are beautiful and valid, even if it means yum! as a way to salute the dead. I learned that from University.

Posted by: eman at May 25, 2015 04:12 PM (MQEz6)

36 Well think about it. For a socialist organization bordering on flat out communism, celebrating the honored dead of soldiers in the past brings a nation together rather than fragments, reminds people of sacrifice and duty rather than self and comfort, and gives a sense of tradition and continued national identity they're trying to demolish.

So better to work the cult of personality and the idea of parties, weekends, fun, and barbecues so people ignore the true meaning of Memorial Day.

After all, venerating the past, military culture, and history is fascist, just ask Howard Zinn.

No, you nimrods; Milk was a loudmouth albeit supposedly charismatic politician pushing an agenda. His sexual orientation had nothing to do with his murder. He was killed by a disgruntled employee. If he hadn't been killed a "harvey Milk" day wouldn't even be considered and yes, Milk supported jim Jones. Obviously, Milk's death was s sad thing for people who loved him,,but hero----nope.

108 For our disloyal opposition, by Rudyard Kipling

Memories

1930

"The eradication of memories of the Great War. -SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT ORGAN

The Socialist Government speaks:THOUGH all the Dead were all forgot

And razed were every tomb,

The Worm-the Worm that dieth not

Compels Us to our doom.

Though all which once was England stands

Subservient to Our will,

The Dead of whom we washed Our hands,

They have observance still.



We laid no finger to Their load.

We multiplied Their woes.

We used Their dearly-opened road

To traffic with Their foes:

And yet to Them men turn their eyes,

To Them are vows renewed

Of Faith, Obedience, Sacrifice,

Honour and Fortitude!



Which things must perish. But Our hour

Comes not by staves or swords

So much as, subtly, through the power

Of small corroding words.

No need to make the plot more plain

By any open thrust;

But-see Their memory is slain

Long ere Their bones are dust!



Wisely, but yearly, filch some wreath-

Lay some proud rite aside-

And daily tarnish with Our breath

The ends for which They died.

Distract, deride, decry, confuse-

(Or-if it serves Us-pray!)

So presently We break the use

And meaning of Their day!

153 I know a fellow at church who went to Harvard Law with Obama. He knew him there and said he got good grades. I asked this guy if he actually voted for Obama. He admitted doing so. I know I must have looked dumbfounded because he said he now had "questions" about whether that was a good idea. I told him I thought Obama was a traitor, deserved to be impeached, tried and convicted, and that Hell would freeze over before I'd shake Obama's hand. Moreover, I'd be hard put to keep a civil tongue in my head if I got within shouting distance of him. When he asked me why I disliked Obama so intensely, I started with the $19 trillion debt, then moved on to Gerald Walpin and the political weaponization of the IRS. At that point he said he had to go someplace and left quickly.

You know, we're supposed to think people from Harvard are actually educated, but this character acted like he hadn't heard of anything but the debt issue. Of course, now that I know he's not only a lawyer, but an Obama voter, I realize that I can't trust anything he says any further than I can throw the building we meet in.

He and I are supposed to work together on a project but, after that admission, I have no desire to ever have even another word with him anymore, much less work on something together.

187 Listeriosis is a rare but serious illness caused by eating food contaminated with the bacteria called Listeria monocytogenes. Anyone who experiences fever and muscle aches, sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms, or develops fever and chills after eating the ice cream should seek medical care and tell their health care provider about any history of eating the ice cream. Symptoms can appear from a few days up to a few weeks after consumption of the contaminated food.

202 My fellow Americans, a few moments ago, for the first time as President,
I paid tribute at this tomb where American soldiers were laid to rest.
Their names are known only to God. But there is much we do know about
them and about all the others we remember today. We know that they all
loved their lives as we love ours. We know they had a place in the
world, families waiting for them, and friends they expected to see
again. We know that they thought of a future, just as we do, with plans
and hopes for a long and full life. And we know that they left those
hopes behind when they went to war, and parted with them forever when
they died.



Every Memorial Day, we try to grasp the extent of this loss and the
meaning of this sacrifice. And it always seems more than words can
convey. All we can do is remember and always appreciate the price that
was paid for our own lives and for our
own freedom.

205 I've never heard the weather radio list that many Texas counties before.

And over the border in NW LA, I think we just went from 12 weather alerts to 13 with a tornado watch.

The cat is getting annoyed, so I put a pillow over the weather radio.

I'm watching, I don't need the noise every 5 minutes. We have it set to tell us about NE Texas counties, but sometimes that means it just won't shut up.

210 Mac, I know what you mean. Without getting into it too much, the simple explanation is that people I know are mostly, have always been mostly, pretty clueless about public policy and important issues. (this includes many people actually working in the field, BTW)

But whereas before, mostly, the low average info and effective intelligence of so many were merely a drag on the country, in the last few years they have helped create the serious degradation we now see.

Was pretty clear from the hysteria over Iraq (well represented in the clueless "conservative" community) and the absolutely jaw-dropping, unbelievable idiocy surrounding Katrina that the country was 1,000% different than it had been just a decade before. But this idiot's election (and esp. re-election), and the near collapse of basic institutions since (const. co-equal branches, a long-declining but now fully insane judiciary, craven rent-seeking corporate fascist partners instead of independent private sector actors, and on and on) illustrated how perilous things are.

And so the low-info (educated, urban/suburban, coastal or univ. town) voter was/is now an active part of the country's degradation or even destruction (not in a physical sense). Hard to view these people the same way any more.

226 153 mac I knew Obama at Harvard too, which is precisely why there is no way in hell I would ever vote for him. Back during the 2008 election when he was a blank slate (hope, change) and people were projecting their own wishes that he was the bringer of the end of racial strife and all kinds of peace (no red America, no blue America - remember that one?), I was telling everyone I knew who would listen who he really was. He ran with a leftist crowd, and at that place to be a leftist meant you were really completely out of the mainstream of American society and common sense. His voting record showed it, let alone his associations with Wright and Ayres and his mysterious past, but the media engaged in a massive coverup and the LIVs didn't want to know. In a sense, it was so farfetched that the Democrats would run such a candidate that people actually discounted the truth about him and believed that he was a mainstream liberal, like Clinton or Carter. Who could imagine running trillion dollar deficits for years? That became the norm. We have fundamentally transformed, indeed. I remain an optimist and believe we can bring America back, but it will be a struggle that takes decades.

By the way, as to his grades, yes, he had excellent grades, but keep in mind that taking law school exams is an art that is somewhat related to the practice of law but in many ways is not. The key is for the professor to make the exam questions complicated, and then for the student to spot as many issues as possible and mention all of them, if possible with a case that supports the principle of law. "The Plaintiff, trespassing on the property, fell into the pool and was injured, in the process destroying the Defendant's 150-year old manuscript worth $1 million." Not good for deciders, very good for people who say one the one hand, on the other hand . . . .

239 Interesting, Caesar. The unworldliness of Obama and people like him (in all respects) sort of jumps out right away - but I suppose one has to have some experience and background and at least have thought about public policy issues *a little* (as opposed to trundling along in ignorance, guided by myth, bias, resentment, and self-dealing, as most do) to have it be so obvious.

About bringing America back, the definitional issues there, alone, defy useful discussion in this format. I think a good simplistic way to put one major point, however, is that Obama is a symptom, not a cause. He actually showed not a whit of enterprise or talent in his astonishing, accomplishment-free instantaneous rise from nobody to president.

Some advisors' unusual strategy of winning the nomination without actually winning many primaries ("super delegates" for the win) could be seen as clever, but even THAT would have been futile without this amazing, idiotic, cultural/media phenomenon - and crucially, the degraded electorate that actually lapped it up instead of recoiling at it, as most generations of Americans would have done. And all this against the literal living parody of a ridiculously bad and unfit candidate, Hillary, herself running a predictably unskillful campaign. The still-astonishing Joe the Plumber incident actually reflected most of the amazing degradation on so many sides: an oafish unfit candidate walks into a guys' drive-way and a spontaneous question of course leads to a major gaffe, followed by Third World vilification/harrassment of the random citizen. There are many, but that once episode suffices to present an America that is literally unrecognizable to anyone over a certain age.

Symptom - disastrous, pernicious, degrading, still hard to believe - but symptom, not cause. Big hill to climb - an few footholds visible ....

I don't even know how you fight shit like this - here's the President of the US, who is supposed to remind us that Memorial Day weekend is not just or primarily about barbeques and ice cream - having an ice cream. Purposely sneering at patriotic Americans. And he gets away with this shit.

Just as I don't know how to fight people who admit they don't care what the facts are, they're sticking to their narrative and they are going to shout lies until the lies are accepted by all as truth.

402 On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

431 Crap.

CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says sheriff's deputies are heading to an area in the western part of the parish, after reports of a "rope tornado" sighting in that area.

Prator says the reported twister was headed south-southwest toward Summer Grove.

There are also reports of damage on Cook Rd., where a tree has fallen on a mobile home and a power line is down, according to CPSO spokesperson Cindy Chadwick.

There are currently reports of wind gusts of up to 70 miles per hour by I49 and Bert Kouns.
The tornadic storm is now tracking through South Bossier Parish, where a tornado warning is in effect.

Some varieties of clay shrink or swell depending on their water content which plays heck with basement walls over time, and clay is not very porous so once it's wet it stays wet a long time.

531 Nip, Thunderdeb is correct. I've been in and around construction in Texas for a very long time, even when I was working as a cop and off into executiveville in the land of suit n' tie.

You don't start seeing basements or storm cellars in Texas, till you're up around Corsicana and further North.

In the Hill Country, the limestone is indeed, the stopper. I lived in San Antonio, '76 to '99, and couldn't dig a hole to bury a pet cat that'd died of old age.

South of San Antonio, onward to the coast here, it's hit or miss where you can dig deeply, or where the hole is gonna fill up with water before you get it dug.

Thing is, no one is going to make plans to build a cellar, when the odds starting out are against you.

That's how it is here. Don't believe me? Call the Jim Dutton Home Improvement Show, AM 740, Saturdays, 2 pm to 4 pm, CST.

Bingo. The further north you go, obviously the freeze line (underground) gets deeper. This has a lot to do with where the water line enters the house, so basements are more practical.

Unless you have a split level (up north), where the bottom level is more like the basement. I have a huge basement (~1400 square feet), and my house was built by Centex (Central Texas Construction, based in Dallas), so obviously, Texas companies know how to build basements, if possible.

A lot of houses I know of in Ohio and Kentucky are just built on slabs.

561 To clarify, Yankee builders don't just build basements out of the goodness of their hearts,>>>

You have to dig your footings 4 feet down to get below the frost line. So they have to dig halfway to basement depth already. The cost to make a full basement is partially paid for and to make a full basement ads value.

You can spend all the money in the world and not have a basement in Houston. You are just plain wrong on this. There is a reason for it , and it isn't cheap hillbilly southern builders.

Very moving ceremony at the end, taps will do that to you.

A friend had a house built in suburban Milwaukee, and the frost line there is 7 feet. I am sure that Misanthropic Humanitarian would have something meaningful to say here.

577 A Blessing From GOD! Good news at Fortress Eromero!
Negative results on the melanoma! Celebrating with a home made
milkshake. Brookshires 100% whole milk, vanilla Bluebell, Nutiva organic
ultra virgin coconut oil, and a shot of Captain Morgan. Whipped to a
frenzy with the miniature trolling motor.

Woo-Hoo! Offers a high five. But why do you want virgin nutria sweat and motor oil in a milkshake?

578 Soccer stadium under 7 feet of water. River that goes though downtown Austin completely flooding. Hitting tree branches

As long as the Superdome doesn't flood! Nobody needs a soccer stadium.

579 I am kind of late to the party here.

But what? It is Memorial Day. No having fun? No enjoyment of an ice cream cone? Did we all spend the day wearing sackcloth and ashes?

Did you spend the day on your knees praying for the dead?

I think not.

590 I am disgusted by him, but as has been mentioned, did you get a look at the awe and reverence the press and photographers display towards him? It seems that if they could, they would all orally service him.

I like to call the mainstream press the "Water Carrying Whores for Obama" which is accurate. They are worse than those who voted for this turd.
