41 Speaking of thunder, I'm sort of thinking with the mild winter we just had that this spring could be nasty. I mean nasty in the way of funnel clouds. During the winter we had a lot of days with moisture coming up from the Gulf. And that could mean very bad storms come April/May.

43 Interesting article in the Cruz for President - er, sidebar! - on passing more laws to ensure that existing laws are followed.


Not pernicious in itself, but that proposal to reaffirm courts' sole power to determine lawfulness of regulation etc. is yet another example of the opposition in Congress simply refusing to oppose.


Power of the purse was the explicit primary mechanism given to Congress to exert its primacy in policy matters. And our history followed that pattern.


Attempts to correct things by, essentially, passing laws that say "the law must be followed!" - especially when this law gives one smidgen of additional power to the judiciary, whose rogue status qualifies as Problem Numero Uno to begin with - is simply a head-shaker.


Surrendering the power of the purse (which, very concretely, is exactly what has happened with the idiotic CR/shut-down theater kabuki) is game-over.

Yet almost nobody seems to understand how effectively refusing to use appropriations as leverage has rendered all of Congress, incl. the "opposition", powerless.

49 The other thing Brutus my dog did was get out and roam the town. Often being a small town the police would find him and bring him back without a problem. Now also he loved car rides and once he while roaming saw a woman with a open car door, in a flash he was in. The terrified woman called the police who called to come get the dog. He was the friendliness dog you could find.

You answered your own question. What happened to every single bloomin' one of the congresscritters who made it clear that appropriations was the province of Congress? Endless demonization.

One of the reasons I support Cruz -- after the 2014 elections, the uniparty was unmasked. This cycle, how many times have we heard 'he shut down the government' as a smear.

56 Well you nailed it Rhomboid. The "opposition" other than a handful has no desire to oppose the expansion of government. They are enjoying being able to pretend that they lacked the power to stop things

Hmmm, perhaps encouraging the Donald to run was less about getting a properly liberal beltway type the R nomination and more about making sure they had some good excuse to lose to either the felonious traitor or the open and doddering commie so they could protect their phony baloney congress seats, possibly getting back to the preferred minority party status.

We shouldn't have to provide reasons why they can't come here. The other side should have to explain how these immigrants benefit America. Set up refugee camps and provide protection over there, not here.

Had something similar happen to me in L.A. It's evening, about to go to work, get in my car, turn on the ignition and glance in the rear view mirror only to see someone sitting in the back seat.

I absolutely froze, and as you can imagine my adrenaline level sky rocketed. But as I stared in the mirror, I saw two pointy ears and realized it was a cat!

My car was a small Datsun station-wagon, and I had left the windows open and the cat had gotten in and was just sitting there. So obviously I got the cat out of there, but that was a hell of a way to start the evening.

69 Kooky hate crusaders One Million Moms have set their glassy sights on the new FOX drama "Lucifer," which they claim is "spiritually dangerous."
says someone at LGBTQNation (yeah, well, whatever)
http://bit.ly/1pE8VYU

Funny thing, last night I just watched the latest episode, "A Priest Walks Into a Bar." Actually praiseworthy - I had no idea they would go so far in promoting a spiritual outlook; the Priest's faith and sincerity really gets to the snarky Lucifer character like nothing has so far in the series.

It is true that the comic-book based "Lucifer" show has as little relation to the Iniquitous One as Hogan's Heroes had to do with real concentration camps in WW2, and for some ignorant folk (in either case) it might be confusing, but for what it is, the series has actually hooked me for its approach. Kinda fun as a sci-fi cop show.

71 Saw Batman VS Superman.

I enjoyed it.

Well made action movie with the Snyderisms toned down.

Well acted. Great 3D and Atmos sound if you can see it at a theater with both.

Will not change your life, but very much delivers on the title-

Batman VS Superman.


I liked Jesse Eisenberg as an updated Lex Luthor. He had the supercilious, snarky aspect of Luthor down pat and crossed it with a Zuckerbergian douchebaggery.

My one big complaint is that the Flash appears to be a hipster turdball. Totally unlike the version from my comic book days in his very short time on the screen.

78 Well I have new thoughts on Roman bread making.

I found out that the Romans used a bread stamp to put a maker's mark on their loaves, which means they probably had low gluten flour (like you make beaten biscuits out of) so the raw dough would be much less resilient, and very little raising in the oven when it baked.

The dough would be closer to consistency of play-doh than a good loaf of white bread that we have today.

The bread stamp is interesting, I am not sure if it is because the bakers sold bread to distributors, or if there was some sort of quota thing going on either with the grain dole or within the bakers' guild.

He's no Christopher Reeve -- who is? -- but Cavill filled out his role nicely, IYKWIMAITTYD.

But I was firmly behind the Bat on this one. And was surprised at how good Affleck was.

110 Happy Easter, Morons!

Some Easter memories:

My dad, with his twisted sense of humor, once told us that he accidentally ran over the Easter bunny and there were chocolate eggs smashed all over the road. How we cried!

But the next morning, our baskets were full and I said "Daddy, the Easter Bunny still came!" He replied, "Must have been the wrong bunny!"

Another time, my parents made an Easter egg hunt for their granddaughter-in-law. She went out into the back yard and my parents' miniature Schnauzer proceeded to lead her to every egg.

Sorry, I was sorta answering a related but different question, which is, if the guy is supposed to be such a strict conservative, then why is the other clown who doesn't even pretend to be a conservative getting more conservative votes than he is?


Hypothetically speaking.

Posted by: BurtTC at March 27, 2016 02:17 PM (Dj0WE)

146 Mega, dunno, but pledging to *attempt* specific things is part of campaigning, right? The plausibility, sincerity, or desirability of said pledges being something that voters get to assess as part of the process.


Radical simplification of the tax code - unfortunately unlikely, though there's literally no defense of 99% of the tax code - would accomplish much the same thing.


And .... to return to my earlier comment above .... you don't need to "abolish" an agency to gut it. Just don't fund its staff and operations. Appropriations process. Use it.


Not THAT long ago, a war was literally lost because Congress used its appropriations power to throw everything away. In the area where the executive has the most undisputed sway and deference by other branches, catastrophic things were accomplished over the president's objections.


Control over domestic matters is literally a question of asserting your power. Or not, as we are seeing now.

I don't think anyone would take a claim to "abolish the IRS" seriously and I don't know that anyone would be foolish enough to even make that claim. One can campaign on "working to abolish the IRS" ... but anyone who was a strict Constitutionalist would probably understand that that promise would be totally meaningless without repealing the 16th amendment.

Further, if the feral government got rid of the IRS and worked off of sales taxes (mainly), which would also require a new Constitutional amendment allowing it (regardless of what Benedict Roberts thinks about the feral government's "right" to lay any tax for anything - or even nothing - to pay for anything it wants) then it's pretty clear that the states, which have lived off of sales taxes to a good extent, would just ramp up their take of personal income.

196 Chris, she lassoed Staypufft Doomsday in the new flick.

So maybe they haven't abandoned the whole concept yet. I haven't read a comic book for months now, and none from the big two for years. They lost my business with stupidity and politics.

197 Yes they wanted WW to be more Amazon warrior. She is now one of the physically strongest characters in the DC world.
IIRC she can go toe to toe with Superman.

198 Julie Newmar led the crusade against leaf blowers in L.A. She was personally responsible for preventing the people who do the jobs Americans won't do from doing their jobs until after she had lunch.

205 The easter hunt brawl. Dear Lord, the parents who were not mobbing and had upset kids are not angry at the parents that were doing the brawling and shoving aside kids to score the candy but at Pez for not having enough bouncers to police the barbarians.

207 I had a dry-mount, so to speak, of that Kinski snake-shot, framed and pinned up on the study wall, through the loneliest years of my life. Did not help a bit.

And then I met a girl. And, another one and another one.
The actual females I know "from those days" have held up quite a bit better than the real-life Kinski. I cannot speak for the snake. But I have one that speaks for me.

208 Since it is an open thread Glenn Beck has gotten positively creepy and I'm starting to be a bit Skeeved out that Cruz hasn't disowned him.

212 Sidebar. So we're linking to Vox as a non-sarcastic legitimate source now...? Ok.

Recognizing this place less and less.

Hate to b*tch... in fact I have never b*tched about AoS for any reason - and I've been here almost every day for a little under a decade. I really hope this is a phase and not a sign of things to come.

I will the next time I get on the computer.

215 I lost interest in superhero movies once I saw the first Kick-Ass. The less said about the sequel the better, though I hope they will recapture the spirit of the original with the third installment.

I will go see Suicide Squad, for the Robbie character.

Vox?

What a joke.

217 211: Very true, but I think Pez will simply not have the event in the future and I was reading a lot of angry statements but not "I will sue you because my kiddo was shoved into the mud" stuff.


I wonder how many Kiwanis and Mason lodge groups have quit having events like this in the last couple of decades because of grown ups showing up with similar free for all attitudes + fewer people in the community willing to give up TV or gaming etc time to join the community groups at the same time. Pretty sad all around.

218 I do hope the Israeli visa department has Beck on a list. He's the type who'd dress up in a toga to visit the Shrine of the Book and scribble "annotations" to the Isaiah Scroll there

Uh, if that's how you want to read it, friend.

But we are talking about Vox, the news website equivalent of receiving a Cleveland Steamer from somebody of your non-preferred gender.

224 The only true Catwoman is Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether, or Eartha Kitt. And I didn't need molded plastic to improve my physique. Pure. West. And why doesn't Batman dance anymore? Remember the Batusi?

She had a the lasso, was maybe hard to tell what was going on there with all the CGI on screen
