30 I was friends with a woman that had her first child at 15. She was on welfare long enough to get her son and daughter into school, then went to work. She was barely 5 foot, but worked as a carpenter tender and pulled green chain at a lumber mill. She was tough and never whined about her lot in life.

Preemptive strike in case someone wants to vet her for the v-p slot on the repub ticket. I voted for Susana Martinez in the 2010 election just before I left the state because I respected her platform and also Dollar Bill Richardson, the serial groper.

37 Megan Oakley believes that if children are sexually active, even if they are not of the age of consent, they should be provided with contraceptive.

Speaking on This Morning the 19-year-old said: 'I'm obviously not saying for ten years old to go out and have sex but if they are having sex before the age of consent they should be using contraceptive to avoid teen pregnancy.'

That's the really scary part. You know there are states and districts where, if you were a Republican, and you were willing to run for office on a platform of "the Republican Party is broken, and beyond repair," you would win landslide victories.


Where are these guys? Where are the guys already in office, talking about the destruction of their Party?


Sure, we hear rumblings, but nowhere near matching the anger and sense of betrayal people (i.e. voters) have.

Agreed. But I'm a contrary SOB. Whenever I hear anyone screeching about pedo priests, I always counter with, "can you tell me, by percent, what the average of priests molesting kids is compared to government school teachers molesting kids? And once you've done that, perhaps you'd like to ask all these hot-shot, crusading lawyers why they're gung-ho to go after the evil Catholic Church, but not one of them will take on the predators of the Teacher's Association?

Actually, his method is to watch a bunch of drive-in and "B"-"F" movies,

find the effective scenes

rewrite them into his storyline and context

film them with top line Hollywood actors and production values.


I'll give the guy credit. He can write great dialogue and scenes-

the opening of "Inglorious Bastards" is a perfect example.

But, he's either gotten lazy or surrounded himself with "yes-folk" and no longer bothers to edit himself-

as a result...long, mostly boring movies with interesting scenes sprinkled throughout as opposed to movies with one great scene after another (his earlier stuff).

He tells a story about a worker that was told to hook up a downed electrical wire. The company wouldn't shut down the power for him to do it and he was electrocuted. His wife sued and lost. The company argued that he should have known better.

214 Okay, finally.

Would you consider voting for a guy who said this?

And this is the thing [progressives] miss: More bureaucracy means less opportunity - because big government and big business don't fight each other so much as feed each other. This is how it works: Smart, talented people go into government thinking the only way to fix complicated problems is with complicated laws - laws that only people like themselves can understand. They make new bureaucracies. They put up red tape. And then? And then they go into the private sector and help businesses navigate the very maze they created. If the insurance industry does not understand how Obamacare works, why not hire the person who ran it? This works out great for them. But what about the rest of us? What about the people who can't get ahead because costs are too high . . . or who don't create jobs because the laws are so confusing? And so round and round the revolving door goes, all while the people stand on the sidelines.
That's how today's experts become tomorrow's cronies. And that's why we don't think government should bulk up the bureaucracy. We think it should break up problems so people can solve them themselves. Don't hire more bureaucrats. Don't leave it up to their discretion. Set clear, firm rules that all of us can live by - rules that tell us what's expected and what's off limits. And then let the people go to work. That, to me, is the conservative insight: Don't outsource to the bureaucracy. Crowdsource.
That kind of government would not only preserve equal opportunity. It would protect the dignity of the individual. Bad government tries to blunt what makes each of us unique. Good government defends it. Bad government tries to tie us all down. Good government frees us to be our best. And so is government important? Absolutely - it's essential. But there's no mistaking the field for the game. What government is supposed to do is create an environment where the individual can thrive and communities can bloom. In other words, government makes things possible, but the people make them happen.

Thanks Dubya!:

Missouri residents soon will not be able to use their state driver's licenses as identification to get into most federal facilities, making it at least the fourth state to lose a federal exemption from complying with national proof-of-identity requirements.

A letter from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to Missouri informs the state that its exemption from federal Real ID requirements will come to an end Jan. 10. That means Missouri driver's licenses cannot be accepted as ID at most federal facilities. It also could eventually mean that Missouri driver's licenses won't be accepted as identification for commercial airplane flights.

llinois is in the same boat, as are Minnesota, New Mexico and Washington.

FS, my parents always told us Santa was mom and dad and a game we were playing. They didn't believe in lying to their kids. I guess that's sort of odd and I don't know if it made any difference one way or the other but I told my brother it's probably best that I'm not even more cynical than I already am : )

It also led to a childhood where every year we got the lecture before we went to my grandmothers to not tell one particular cousin who really should have known the truth earlier than she did.

Cruz/Clarke baby.

Most of the country doesn't vote for the #2 slot anyway so I don't think the "just a Sheriff from Milwaukee" thing would do more damage than would be offset by (a) genuine enthusiasm from true conservatives, (b) swinging a significant portion of the AA vote, or at least discouraging kee jerk mass/bloc Dem voting by AAs, (c) blunting the whole "racist meanie" theme they so love to toss out.

Also puts law and order front and center. This is 1968 all over again, potentially in a good way.

Once he gets four (or 8 years) in the Veep slot, no one can claim he's "just a Sheriff" anymore, and is positioned for the top of the ticket.

Well, the disclaimer is it really works best in a large crockpot with a rack to put the duck on (or you can cut the duck into four smaller pieces) because you don't want to deal with all that fat from the duck. I may have to try it in the oven this year because I don't have that large of a crockpot or a rack that would fit in it.

One 4 to 5 fine pound ready to cook duck
2 Tbs grated onion
1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
1/2 cup orange juice
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp dried mustard
1/4 cup currant jelly
2 tbs grated orange peel
2 tbs port wine
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 orange, peeled and sectioned into chunks

Place duck in slow cooker. With a fork, prick skin of duckling all over at approx 2 inch intervals. Place ducking on rack in slow cooker (If you cook it in a smaller crock pot cut it into four pieces. In small saucepan combine onion, tarragon, orange juice, salt mustard, jelly, orange peel, wine and corn starch. Cook over medium hear until thickened. Brush 1/3 cup sauce over duck, reserving remaining sauce. Cook on low 6 to 7 hours or until duckling is tender. Remove fat with a bulb baster.
Take it out and put under broiler a bit to get the skin a little crispy. Stir orange sections into remaining sauce , heat and pour over duckling right before serving.

It's about four servings.

Nice rosy color and looks festive

312 Crane didn't end up so well. He was found bludgeoned to death in his apartment. That is where the police found his extensive video collection.Posted by: Cheri at December 24, 2015 11:03 AM (oiNtH)Robert Graysmith (author of Zodiac) wrote a book about the case, The Murder of Bob Crane, which puts forth the theory that Crane's "best friend," John Carpenter, was responsible for the murder, believing that Crane had tired of Carpenter's company and, when Carpenter realized that Crane was dumping him - and, as well, cutting off the supply of women he got secondhand from Crane - he snapped and bludgeoned him to death.The book was retitled Auto Focus when the 2002 film came out. Greg Kinnear played Crane and Willem Dafoe Carpenter. It's OK, but no great shakes.

314 And my irritation about people lecturing others about not encouraging a belief in Santa comes from having to deal with militant Atheists who apparently think it's the apex of profundity and intellectualism to say, "Well gee, Santa's just like God isn't he-an invisible being who's knows whether you're naughty or nice and rewards or punishes- you?

uhhh-no. God is not Santa Claus and neither is Jesus. Do you want to talk about the Bible, tradition, reason and experience or do you just want to get off t a stupid guip, cackle and high five your homeboys?

317 Back from checking out the morning thread. Meh. No Vic News for Christmas Eve. Guess that's okay. He had to anniversarize, after all.



Here's an hour-long video about the Apollo 8 mission (with too much Walter Cronkite, apparently the only news anchor in existence in 1968, but otherwise watchable). The moon landing the next year gets all the historic glory, but this was the first time people went to the moon. I watched it twice yesterday. Very moving. And Christmasy. Even religious! Also, lots of people smoking right there in mission control!

Thanks, I'll check it out as I like crime stories. I do know that Carpenter was acquitted of his murder and that he maintained his innocence until he died, but that may have more to do with the ineptitude of the Scottsdale police in the original investigation.

I always like Bob Crane and the movie shows he was a total sex maniac who banged every broad on Hogan's Heroes as well as cruising bars and nightclubs with his buddy and using his fame to get women. Kinda like Clinton in so many ways.

Visit the Caribbean sometime. The coke or pepsi they import from the USA is more expensive than the locally produced rum. The rum and cokes are potent in order to save money.

In the great state store system in Pennsylvania, bottom shelf vodka is cheaper than bottom shelf rum. Cheap rum, imo, tastes terrible, while cheap vodka is quite good.

395 If anyone is going to church and has a new pastor/priest this year, please keep them in prayer. No matter how many times you've officiated at a Christmas service, it always makes the pastor nervous to have to officiate in front of new people-many of who they've never met before. If you're a person who is naturally an introvert you get performance anxiety because you want to do a good job and you know that with some of these folks it's your one and only chance. Pray that they feel upheld and strengthened the peace and love of Christ, and affirmed in their calling. if your pastor has never done a Christmas service before because they started at another time of the year they need extra prayers.

And I worry this year because of threats of violence in order to shut churches down

It's very impactful and they have started churches in lots of other places. I always find it inspiring that it started out as a storefront church and it's now huge, and it's not a "Mane it and claim it church". thank goodness. Ads you know Cymbala attributes the growth not to anything he did-really- but all to the grace of God and fervent prayer. The prayer is foundational for their church as you know. I have read some of his books too.

There is no conservative party. You and others of your ilk have made being a conservative something no self respecting young idiot would ever think of being.

As a result our number shrink and the GOPe has made sure we never get mentioned or allowed to make any laws or stand up to any crap from the Democrats.

I remember the year one of our daughter's friends told her the "truth" about Santa. She was old enough (if one can ever be) that it wasn't too bad. We gave her the "now you get to be Santa, too, for little kids" talk.

427 Miracle on 34th St. features a humorless career woman who doesn't believe in lying to her daughter about imaginary beings like Santa Claus. Obviously the story is imaginary (really!) but the viewer is meant to see O'Hara's character as initially narrow minded and joyless.

She is. When she was a carpenter tender, she would lug sheets of plywood bigger than her. When she worked at the mill, her boss had to talk to her. She would sometimes get fed up with the work and jam things up so she could have a break. Fortunately, the boss had dealt with that before.

Her ex brother in law's new wife once asked her why she worked in a lumber mill. she just looked at her like she was nuts. You work in places like that because you've got kids to feed.

479 yeah, good article on Trump, Borders, Masculinity ... whoever linked it upthread.

"He's a breath of old-timey, masucline cologne in an increasingly feminine world"

I'd quibble with that a bit. The US and much of the west is becoming feminized in many ways, but mostly in charging white males with rape, the KKK gene, white privilege, and being too manly.

The cutthroat treacherous left at its core is not feminized at all, it will castrate others so it can have all the power. While Obama has a feminine side, the Democrat/commies are unapologetic in their vicious attacks on the right, and Kennedy and Clinton rose to the top seemingly on the wave of their negligent homicide and multiple molestations (alleged).

And the rest of the world is still invading and chopping heads off, right up to the border in Mexico where cartels kill off whole police forces. The Muslims we invite in are maybe westernized, but not all. They don't shed all their male tendencies but they are approved since they are part of the diversification that will help break down our coherent society.

The commie plan is a 100 years old, and in the 60's it became clear they wanted to feminize US, to weaken us. But Putin or Mandela were still strong male warriors. Winnie did take up the slack for her man while he played protester, and she made sure the necklace tortures and murders continued ... but that is not exactly feminism.

Then said, her brother Jack used to make fudge. One year everybody said, that was the best fudge ever.

He said, that's because he burnt the first batch and didn't want to waste it, so, after he made up the second batch, he broke up the first batch and stirred it in.

My parents enjoyed Santa (Easter Bunny, Leprechauns, etc), but they put the twist that Christmas was the one night of the year the animals talked -- pets had better be treated well, or else! We also put out carrots for the reindeer rather than milk and cookies. Apparently, we gave parents a hard time because we didn't have a chimney so when my Dad became a Grandpa, he looooved giving us 'Santa Keys' for our front doors.

489 The other part of maybe why I mixed about Santa is I use to work with a guy (from a few years to 24years ago) is he would tell the story that at the age of 15 he still believed in Santa. I heard the story often and he did seem proud of it so could only take it as true.

Brazilian Femen chicas strip down to to their lovelies in a mock-castration protest against a Brazilian politician who said something sexist:

Higher resolution here: http://tinyurl.com/oloh582

Even the intentional uglification cannot overwhelm the innate succulence.

Funny coda from the comments:

"The woman on the right on the photo was one of the founders of Femen in Brazil, a loathsome activist called Sarah Winter, who incorporated all the cliches of the radfem movement.

The funny and ironic thing is that she married to a meathead a few months ago and turned 180 degrees. She became a radical anti feminist, anti anything she once stood for and joined a ultra conservative group."

And the local sub stations, feeder lines and street lines are also decrepit. And on top of that the rates are very high.

499 The county I used to live in had been full of poor people for some time. There were two types of women - those that looked on their children as a way onto welfard and those that didn't want to be on welfare at all. The only jobs in the area were physical labor. I think about them this time of year, because they would get food stamps the first of the month. With Thanksgiving and Christmas coming at the end of the month, they had to really learn how to manage resources to have treats for the holidays.

508 It's odd but I have come to believe that one of the big problems with modern society is the easy availability of contraceptives. It seems to lead to cultures that don't value life or children.

I don't know of a solution.

512 the barely readable Scots version of the Christmas story:


Twas a cauld, cauld nicht i' the back o' the year;
The snaw lay deep, and the starns shone clear;
And Mary kent that her time was near,
As she cam to Bethlehem.
When Joseph saw the toon sae thrang,
Quo' he: 'I houp I be na wrang,
But I'm thinkin' we'll find a place ere lang;'
But there wasna nae room for them.
She quo', quo' she: 'O Joseph loon,
Rale tired am I, and wad fain lie doon.
Is there no a bed in the hail o' the toon?
For farrer I canna gae.'
At the ale-hoose door she keekit ben,
But there was sic a steer o' fremmyt men,
She thocht till hirsel': 'I dinna ken
What me and my man can dae.'

And syne she spak: 'We'll hae to lie
I' the byre this nicht amang the kye
And the cattle beas', for a body maun try
To thole what needs maun be,'
And there amang the strae and the corn,
While the owsen mooed, her bairnie was born.
O, wasna that a maist joyous morn
For sinners like you and me?

For the bairn that was born that nicht i' the sta'
Cam doon frae Heaven to tak awa'
Oor fecklessness, and bring us a'
Safe hame in the hender-en'.
Lord, at this Yule-tide send us licht,
Hae mercy on us and herd us richt.
For the sake o' the bairnie born that nicht,
O, mak us better men!

513 Contraceptives have also been responsible for the decrease in the feminity of Western Women.

It is a known fact that increased hormones will cause women to be infertile, changes in their voice and temperament, how they are able to deal with children and Males, and leads to cancer and other problems later in life.

It's also getting into the water supply and changing males too.

But the best traditions we had when we were little was that Santa didn't just bring the presents, he brought everything. We'd go to bed on Christmas Eve and Santa would bring the tree and decorate the house, inside and out and put out the stockings and the presents. It was like magic when we were little.

I would cook it like I cook a pork roast: ignore what it says on the package, cook it for 2 or 3 hrs at 275F in a dutch oven, run the temp up to 450F or more, take the lid off and when the smoke alarm goes off, it's ready. (or when the skin gets crispy. If your ham doesn't have skin, then you just need to wing it)

Then again, it's pre-cooked, right? It doesn't matter how you cook it, as long as it tastes good.

578 Yep, local folks used to have those bumper stickers about spotted owls being tasty to eat. Plenty of spotted owls up towards Canada - they just lost their Southern range. And since the local schools were funded by timber sales, it made a bad situation even worse. Then they turned it into a "National Scenic Area", restricting development. Some folks made money on that, but not most of the folks that had originally settled the area.

Never understood why places like Monterey, CA didn't get the National Scenic Act treatment. Oh wait, rich people live there.

611 Is Schlafly really a post constitutional Republican, when she says Trump may be the country's last hope?

From that Trump supporter bashing article: "You can be forgiven for thinking that in Trump's world, constitutional niceties - indeed any constraints whatsoever - are for losers". Sorry ... don't forgive/accuse me, I don't think anything like that, nor do any Trump supporters I know.

I wish "they" would stop projecting their views of the Trump supporter as Troglodyte, into their pieces. It is the constant straw man, where the Trump haters misrepresent his grandiose statements (or at least fail to present context), then go on to build their straw man ignorant Trump supporter, so they can ride off as the noble constitutionalist conservative ... that loses like a Huckleberry backed Akin candidate.

Cruz or Trump ... fine, as Adelson said when asked what he is looking for ... "someone that can win". Do he and Schlafly want no constraints whatsoever? I'd argue that almost all of what Trump proposes in grandiose simplicity to the masses, can be accomplished in constitutional procedural ways.

Fiorina addressed this briefly, in saying that she would get it done, basically by effective use of the bully pulpit ... "address the nation, press one for yes on your ipad ..." Public opinion wins, guided by their representative ... the POTUS in this case. That is how congressional stalemate is defeated.

Yes, there is a sort of 'prima donna class versus blue collar class' within the Republicans, but the Trump hate is another class, where some desire to be 'pure' even if it means losing. That purity crown leads to this chest beating, straw man creating, pompous blogger type, that must demonstrate his superiority over the lowly Trumpeter.

The argument is whether a Cruz can win over Hillary, or whether we'd need a Trump to crash those Overton windows for the next eight years. The "bully pulpit" is constitutional, and maybe Trump is the only bully that can effectively reach beyond PC.

oh, and new thread up ... I'll leave this rant sitting here

Ha, you should try passing a property tax limitation measure. Talk about vindictive. They start loudly weeping and wailing and shedding those big crocodile tears and then they cut funds for police, fire, libraries, any public-facing government service, all under the guise of "well, you wanted to reduce the size of government, didn't you?"

And all those multiple layers of municipal bureaucrats with their 6-figure salaries? Their jobs are secure.
