Open Thread Until The Boss Shows Up

Below the cut: Col. Oliver North's Veteran's Day speech. I featured it on the ONT last week, but you daywalkers deserve a gander too. He tells one of those stories that makes me swell with pride at being an American. It's only a little over 4 minutes long, but it sticks with you. Oh yes, it sticks.

Luckily, shooter now dead (by cop), but not before he killed three.

24 CNN spoke with over 50 current and former lawmakers, aides and staff
who have personally experienced sexual harassment on The Hill or know
people who have.


Be extra careful of the male
lawmakers who sleep in their offices - they can be trouble. Avoid
finding yourself alone with a congressman or senator in elevators,
late-night meetings or events where alcohol is flowing. And think twice
before speaking out about sexual harassment from a boss - it could cost
you your career.
Oh please, oh please, let Ryan be on the creep list.

61 @49

Basically Trump has been told by GOP leadership that they won't let him fire or replace Sessions, which is why they have been keeping pro forma sessions going so that Trump can't fire then recess appoint a Sessions replacement.

It's amazing to realize that the choosing of Sessions as his AG has been Trumps worst decision and the firing of Flynn was probably his second.

Granted, he's old, and wouldn't stand up to much torment from the Left, but we could probably get a couple of young Latino councilmen or a first-term House member. Defectors are more expensive; he's just got too many miles to buy back a turncoat for, umm, "re-grooving."

92 There's an interesting bit of wisdom known mostly only by linguists:

When someone used Anglo-Saxon words when speaking, they're telling the truth. But when they used Latin-based words to say the same thing, they're lying or trying to hide the truth.

Examples:

"I fucked her" vs. "The participants involved engaged in consensual coital intercourse."

""Cops shoot madman" vs. "The individual of undetermined sanity was incapacitated and rendered likely deceased by police ordnance."

102 Any word on how Judge Moore is really doing down in Alabama? I just need some good news...you know like maybe Mitch Mcturrtle had a stroke and is going to be a vegetable for the next few years...or something along those lines. Or that maybe he gets hit in the head with a frozen ball of poo from a passing airplane...funny and useful.

106 A "cabbit" is a Democrat's unit of measure based on the distance between the Democrat's fingertips and a working man's wallet.

Perhaps he needs an intervention from H&G television. Send over some contractors who can recommend hazmat cleaning services and show him how tools work.

117 Ok, just to be a contrarian cynical asshole, I have to wonder, did that
brave act make a difference? Are Iraqi attitudes toward us better than
they would have been because of such acts? Are they learning something
about our values (ie. woke)? Dostoyevsky in Notes from Underground said
"I believe the definition of a human being is a creature that walks on
two legs and is ungrateful". The past several years have left my default
setting to "cynical".


I suggest that you read "A Flowershop in Baghdad" by sometimes Moron Mike Banzet. We were making a difference, slowly, until JEF pulled the plug.

119 I like the comedian Bill Burr bit where he says white guys need to take a lesson from black guys and switch the placement of the adjective, mother fucker , to avoid sounding totally racist.

121 From the previous threads convo on current sci-fi anime appropriate for a 7th grader...

Despite the name, "Bodacious Space Pirates." No nudity or anything. A group of high school girls become pirates, in a universe where "pirates" are supposed to be just for show (scheduled "piracy" of spacegoing luxury liners.)

"Gargantua on the Verdurous Planet". Some minimally dressed characters here and there. Programmed-from-birth super soldier finds himself accidentally warped to a completely peaceful planet; then discovers the enemy followed him...

Respectfully disagree. it's said that "if you don't know who the mark at the table is, the mark is you."

We were the mark in Iraq from the word go.

Can someone check on ace? Make sure he's had enough water and hasn't been crushed under an avalanche of collapsed shelving?

Yeah, I can see him. He seems to be okay, well, considering what he's doing....

Basically Trump has been told by GOP leadership
that they won't let him fire or replace Sessions, which is why they have
been keeping pro forma sessions going so that Trump can't fire then
recess appoint a Sessions replacement.



It's amazing to realize that the choosing of Sessions as his AG has
been Trumps worst decision and the firing of Flynn was probably his
second.

Posted by: Kreplach at November 14, 2017 02:32 PM (71/k

I don't think they can keep Trump from firing Sessions. They can stop him appointing someone in recess but there must be one non-perfidious bureaucrat in the AG's office that Trump could appoint provisional AG.

Thanks - the reviews seem good. An eyewitness account as well. I'll look into it. I'd like to think that despite a long history of a culture indifferent to our ideals, exposure could change them.
