So I had a chance to spend a little bit of yesterday with the fetching Mrs VIA's highly over educated Asian friend.

Being from Chicago, she was fascinated by the "HeyJackass" website.

And her introduction to the dual concepts of "Ask the Imam", and hand babies was something I should have been able to sell tickets to.

Overall.....a fulfilling two hours of my life.

56 There was a passing comment in the last thread about not understanding Wisconsin. I have had a theory for years that cold climates have a totally different understanding of helping neighbors than people who live in temperate climes -- where the outside will not kill you 4-6 months of the year.

I really think that is why the colder areas have such a strong 'socialist' lean. A totally different attitude where when the snow melts finding homes with a dead family and animals.

Somebody smarter than I could articulate this better, but I think that is such an important point, people in warmer or more populated areas simply do not understand why and how those attitudes are prevalent.

As always, I am late.

But that doesn't have to mean government help. It's hot here and some guy randomly came over and fixed my car enough so I could drive it to the shop. Didn't have to ask, just stood there (possibly dramatically) asking my brother if I needed to call a tow truck.

Southerners are pretty helpful friendly people, on a personal level. Is there any reason why cold might equal a need for help from the government?

I'm reminded ot a great line from "Thank You For Smoking". The tobacco lobbyist explains to his son what he does for a living. They simulate a debate, and the lobbyist veers wildly off on a tangent. When his son exclaims, "that's not what we were talking about", the father responds, "but it's what I want to talk about".

So what's Wisconsin's deal? Seriously, I want to know. I get the impression that, while in NYC if you're not "of the body" you're mostly excluded and belittled, in WI its more like bricks through your window, cops throwing you in jail or killing you/your dog, getting your house burned down, etc. Much more serious consequences.

139 Think of when the Midwestern cold states were settled vs cold state coast. New, different and exciting (not always for the best). But note that the colder areas are more independent than the coasties.

I just think that the jello salad crew has a different take on 'community' responsibility than the older cold areas.

Power is never ceded willingly, and the leftists who've held sway here are merely showing that.

189 I think the sensible voters of Wisconsin saw fiscal crises coming. The last governor shamelessly emptied every dedicated fund, (and should probable have been up on charges for it) putting off what he knew to be a problem for the next governor. He didn't even run for re-election despite polling showing he'd probable win.
He knew how bad it was. The citizens knew, even the folks who were affected by Act 10, knew.
They just expected a massive tax hike to take care of things.
Democrats in Madison were positively drooling over watching R's vote for a big tax hike. That was part of the reason they didn't want to negotiate a budget in good faith.

205 When I was just a wee WWII enthusiast, the fact that we had an excellent heavy tank coming on line that would have matched and/or exceeded, both the Panther and the Tiger, I was very, very mad.

Then, I began to study logistics.

Amateur / Professional. There's a reason for it.


Now ponder this:

1. An Army armored combat brigade can use 200,000 gallons of fuel a day.

2. We have not had to maintain a logistics chain in a nonpermissive environment since Inchon.

212 Seventy thousand pounds of bacon lost!
How will this accident affect the cost?

Bacon prices are already so murky,
we can only afford "bacon" made from turkey.

Bacon-flavored strips
of pressed and refried bird.
Along with birds-to-be, fried eggs,
it seems a bit absurd.

Sliced turkey in the omelet
and now it's safe to say,
It's bird bird bird for breakfast
all the way.
Oh yay.

And while discussing diets
limited by costage,
have you seen the prices lately
on good sausage?

Longtime LGBT advocate and actor Patrick Stewart has sided with Christian bakers in Northern Ireland who refused to write the words, "support gay marriage" on a cake.

"It was the actual words on the cake they objected to," Stewart told BBC's "Newsnight" Thursday. "I would support their rights to say, 'No, this is personally offensive to my beliefs, I will not do it.'"

Edgy commentary pretends to be risky -- mocking the faithful, taking jabs at things people fought and died for: That's not risk, it's a costume for the vacuous. These days risk is doing something the media derides: Saying you love this country, cops are awesome, our military rules, identity is silly.

All of that creates a smirk, stretching from the Upper West Side to the backyards of Brentwood, a snickering dismissal of an intellectual class trained by the Comedy Central applause sign.

Trying to introduce the cast, while describing the event, advancing the plot (small town is quarantined/fenced off after people start to drop dead at astronomical rates, with no symptoms or apparent cause of death), it all gets a bit jumbly and disjointed. The way over the top Government reaction so far has potential to be the best part. Going to give episode 2 a go.

1. Get naked and have a face cloth with body scrub ready. Outside or in the tub.

2. Carefully pour about 3/4 gallon of water (warmed in the sun if you wish) over your body to wet it and the wash cloth.

3. Soap your hair and entire body with the body scrub/facecloth

4. Rinse slowly with the remaining 1 3/4 gallons of water. Tiny bit of vinegar in the last bit of water helps to rinse if desired.

5. Stand naked in the hot desert wind to dry off.

What is/would have been the effect of this? Why *can't* they claim Israel as birthplace if born in Jerusalem? I have to list Germany as my birthplace since it isn't "West Germany" anymore and since Dad was in the Air Force it's not like we were citizens, it's just where I was born.

And then that neat shot of Pratt roaring across a darkened field on a motorbike, with a raptor racing on either side . . .
