The Quotes of The Day



Quote I
Liberals know nothing, but always express themselves with great bravado and certainty. These are people who claim to know exactly what the temperature will be a decade from now, but have trouble with what will happen next week. Their confident predictions are as useless as bill of impeachment or an Iowa vote count. Ann Coulter



Quote II
What is called populism today is simply the West waking up from the long slumber that was the great battle between two empires. Generations of Europeans sublimating national interests for a common defense are now waking up from that period to assert those interests again. In the US, regional and now racial interests that have long been suppressed are bubbling up to the surface. Just as NATO is an entity from a bygone era, cosmopolitan globalism is the echo of a bygone age. The Zman Blog

While the Commies and socialists are counting votes in New Hampshire. There is a young man in Venezuela trying to flee.

I’m not exaggerating when I say that it’s been the hardest puzzle in my life, the one that I’ve tried to solve for nearly two years now to no avail. Starting a new life away from the Venezuelan disaster was a goal my mother had—fate alas, had other things destined for her, and fighting against the Leiomyosarcoma that took her life became the priority.

She was well underway on her paperwork, easy peasy for a doctor of her caliber (six medical specialties and a 26-page resume), but then her cancer worsened, and well, you know what happened.

I made a promise to my mother on her deathbed, that I would get my brother out of this country, and that he’d live a better life. Over the past two years it’s become increasingly harder and harder, to the point that now, 22 months since I made that promise, I find myself having exhausted every card in my hand.

Are you unique? Are you competitive? This might be the competition for you. Competitive Winter Picnicking.

Regarding our "people will make a competition out of anything" category, you are invited to enter the second annual Competitive Winter Picnicking event from Shadow Traffic. This year's picnic will be on March first at Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn. While we don't know if that date will be "wintery" with snow and ice, it is expected to at least be muddy. Which will only make it more fun for extreme competition-type people.

Our judges will be scoring the categories of Richest Picnic Meal, Tastiest Picnic Drink, Funnest Picnic Game and Tightest Thematic Team. That last one will be judged on costumes, props, puns/references and overall synergy. Cash prizes will be awarded. Judges are bribeable.

If Larry King shows up to Burger King on Friday, There could be problems.

Valentine's Day is coming up, and the last thing you probably want to think about is your ex. Well, just this once, I think you're going to want to dig up your old memory box because Burger King is letting you trade those not-so-romantic memories for a delicious burger.

This Valentine's Day, select Burger King locations in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Boston will have Birds of Prey-themed “breakup boxes.” (For all those not in the know, Birds Of Prey is an upcoming movie about Batman villain Harley Quinn, starring Margot Robbie.) If you bring a printed photo of your ex and stuff it inside one of the boxes, you'll receive a free Whopper. Finally: Your ex is good for something!

They say Virginia is for lovers. Current law says otherwise.

Lawmakers in Virginia are closing a legal loophole that could charge unmarried people with a crime for having consensual sex.

The House of Delegates passed a bill this week that aims to repeal the crime of fornication, which makes it illegal for people to have consensual sex outside of marriage.

Currently, fornication is a Class 4 misdemeanor and carries a fine of up to $250.

Organized but forgetful. Genius Award Winner.

Nashville police arrested a burglary suspect who allegedly dropped a notebook during a break-in linking him to another house that was also burglarized that same day.

Robert Shull Goddard, 49, allegedly broke into a house in the Hillwood neighborhood on Jan. 29 by smashing the glass on the back door, then stole “multiple items including a television and firearm,” according to court records filed in Davidson County court.

But, as authorities describe it, Goddard left something behind too.

Prosecutors say in court records Goddard dropped a notebook during the burglary that listed multiple addresses in it. One of those addresses was for another home a few miles away that had been burglarized that same day. The notebook also contained clues to the burglar's identity — notes from his daughter and her address.

Goddard was also caught on video kicking in the back door of a third house the following day, court records state.

23.9 Petey 44326
20.0 Amy 37219

rest are about the same give or take .1

Mayor Petey is coming up behind Bernie and might otter catch him. Amy seems to have a ceiling at around 20 percent.

Bernie slightly underperformed, Mayor Petey did about expected from late polling, Angry Amy did better than expected and Lieawatha and Slow Joe did worse.

Asian nations aren't fucking dumb enough to forget that, African nations certainly aren't, and Europe's problems right now almost all stem from their forgetfulness on the issue- similar to your own!

They really can't afford the nations of Europe sliding out from under the puppet rule of the EU. 4/ 10, my bud.

The moneymen will tell him it's over. And while some Republicans would be content to let him slink back into parody and grotesquely pervy behavior, Trump is not one of them. The spectacle of a former VP's son being indicted will define the 2020 campaign. Good times.

90 That lake in the top pic looks like something from a model train layout. I can just visualize an HO train electrically chugging along its shoreline. That lake is acrylic smooth, colored with Prussian blue and a hint of aquamarine, just like in model railroading.

Rod Stewart would be proud to have such a lake on his layouts.

Miss Carmen threw out her neck and back badly last night. So Her Majesty made an appointment with the vet. 10:30 she said. They were surprised to see me. Carmen was examined and medicine prescribed.

Then Her Majesty called me. "They're waiting for you." Turned out I should have taken Carmencita to the veterinary chiropractor, not our medical vet. Their offices are about an equal distance from our house. One is 20 miles north and the other is 20 miles south.

It was a long day.

They have problem in their own land. Merkel's party just lost her successor when against her orders they banded with AfD to make a coalition government for a German state. AfD is the anti-globalist, anti-EU party. The government of that state is in chaos, Merkel's successor was forced to resign in disgrace and her position is even weaker.

178 Regarding the college versus apprenticeship poster, one of my youngish relatives married a gal who has a degree in literature or something. It took her 3 damn years to get a job as a secretary, or receptionist, or something. She makes $16 per hour.

She stupidly thought she was going to get a job in publishing, in Michigan. It never occurred to her that every large university in Michigan graduates thousands of students per year with liberal arts degrees, and that she was competing with all of them for jobs.

High tech fighting machines cost a lot of money. Germany has been putting every pfennig into Green Energy and social programs, and the military has been allowed to rot into nothing. They effectively have no air force at all, and their Navy consists of a handful of coastal patrol vessels on the baltic coast.

Smoochy, a state of being affectionate, is an adjective. Its plural is smoochies.

Originally from 2006. It is well done IMO. It shows "outtakes" - the other photos in the sequence. It also tells the story of someone trying to identify the Falling Man. A new perspective on that day for me. Amazing how the emotions of the day come back for me.

274 That pizza reheat idea is very similar to one that I got from I
think Serious Eats a while back. The idea is pizza gets worse and worse
as it loses moisture so time matters no matter what.

The method is to put it on a griddle such as cast iron on very low heat and cover it with tin foil to retain the moisture that remains in the dough.

I
tried adding a few drops of water too just to help with the moisture.
Likely that doesn't make a huge difference but it can't hurt.

LOL. Turns out that "older is better" can even apply to the newer stuff, sometimes.

I have a Pioneer external blu-ray drive that's supposed to rip and burn everything, but in the five or so years I've had it, nothing but problems.

Finally today I wanted to burn a CD of surf music (yeah I'm old school), so I got so fed up with the Pioneer, I pulled out an old HP *internal* LightScribe DVD/CD burner. It's a leftover from the HP PC I had years ago, and per a label right on it, was manufactured April 2010 (which makes it antique by tech standards). I used my old hard drive rescue kit to connect it to my Mac. Again, bear in mind, this is a old *PC* drive.

So what happens? The old HP internal worked perfectly with my Mac, without any firmware installation at all, and burned my CD in less than 5 minutes, compared to the hour the Pioneer took (before it said, 'disc error,' and refused to eject).

LOL. Whodathunk that 2010 was 'the good old days when things were built with quality.' :-)

336 Yes, I'm curious how this year's turnout compares to previous years, too. I've seen some lefties say that Iowa's mediocre turnout isn't necessarily a bad sign for November, though...there's just lots of choices, and it will be easier for people to coalesce once a Dem nominee is selected.

That isn't how it works. It is like not showing up for the honeymoon because you will get plenty of sex over the second decade of your marriage.

It is a *terrible* sign for them, and likely a sign that most who lose now will just stay home.

Remember, Harvard Law is now lying its teeth, and claiming that Lizzie's claimed minority status wasn't considered.

Because, after all, minority status is never considered in an academic hire, as anyone who's been on an academic search committee will tell you.

(The required protocol is that minority status is all-important in making faculty hiring decisions, but once you have hired the minority candidate, you are obligated to forever insist that the minority status of the candidate didn't make the slightest bit of difference in hiring.)

actually, no, they haven't. Not unless you go back to 30 year's war or something, and that comeback took several generations.

It hasn't been followed because it goes against Global Warming orthodoxy, but Germany's "Energiewende", their Green Scream Dream, has completely destroyed their energy supply system and is well along on wiping out their entire manufacturing base.
Posted by: Tom Servo at February 11, 2020 10:49 PM (V2Yro)

What Germany had had, was a warrior aristocracy class - the Junkers - and a society that made warfigting a noble profession. And because they were aristocrats without lands, they had the right to free thinking and initiative in handling their operations. It became a tradition to more or less aim the German army and let each general figure out what to do. So many heads thinking, an aggressive past a fault mindset, and great rewards for winning turned into a very good army for the generations from 1814 to 1944.

Hitler stamped the gentry into obedience in WWII, the US eradicated the Junkers and the noble roots of the officer class and modern education has wiped patriotism out of the foot soldier's mind.

In the US, the army is more of a problem solver than a route to glory and inputs from the foot soldier is high, but few nations have been able to sustain this sort of model.

Saw Rince Preebus on TV last week discussing this very topic.

Rince railed on the DNC for being pussies to their own constituents, where the RNC made the decision that if you only won 28% of the vote, but the most votes, you got 100% of that state's EV. The candidates eventually separate themselves, and a leader emerges.

Democrats can't make a decision, everyone is a participant, and gets a trophy and a few percentage votes.

But no possibility of a leader emerging from a large group of candidates.

Democrats done screwed themselves into not being able to select a candidate, setting up a massive conflict for the Milwaukee convention this summer.

He's actually polling decently in SC. He could get delegates, and the field is quite fluid. If he can perform decently in SC, he could end up with delegates on Super Tuesday as well.

A frequent topic of daydreaming on the Left these days is what they could spend the money on if they expropriated all of Jeff Bezos' money, say.

They ignore that Bezos' wealth isn't gold bars in a vault - that the act of trying to expropriate his wealth would sharply diminish it.

They also ignore that this is a one-time windfall - it gets spent, and then the Angry Left is just as poor, and just as angry, as before.

Both are commonly cited by lefties, and both are horrendously mismanaged. Breaking them up would increase representation in the Senate, while allowing for more responsive state governments.

I've long thought the senate should be based on the area of states if the house was based on population. Alaska and Texas would have 15 of the 100 senators

519 No matter who wins the Clown Car Democrat primaries and gets the nomination, the debates with PDT will put the stark contrast between communism/socialism/progressivism/whatever they want to call it and capitalism and will be an eye opener for many. PDT know his economics and anyone advocating giving away free shit to anyone, especially illegals, most certainly does not. I think Trump is going to be very prepared for those upcoming debates, explaining the cost of such giveaways, laying out the tax implications to Mr. and Mrs. Average American.

The Dems may (?) try to slander Trump's character, but his actions -- and the economy -- will speak for him. I have no doubt they think they'll be able to troll Trump on the Twitters, too, but Trump is The Master Troll, specifically when handing out humorous derogatory nicknames that stick. I have a feeling those debates will be highly entertaining, provided Trump/the RNC can have some say over who the moderators are, although Trump would handle a Candy Crowley redux like he handled Baghdadi and Soleimani -- no mercy.

They have been talking up the use of guns since before WWI, and aircraft after that, to make grunts holding the ground useless.

Smart bombs change the calculus, though. I agree the world's air forces have been over-eager to declare the death of massed formations, but since 1991 it's a new world. Now we have GPS guided artillery shells, and soon we'll have artillery with multi-mode sensors.

We'll still need a lot of troops to hold territory if the locals don't like us. There's no way to keep the lid on a population without visible patrols.

589 568, Huck,
I was seeing polls this week and last indicating Bernie at about 30 percent with Mayor Pete moving up after Iowa. The trick of killing Bernie's momentum in Iowa with the delayed counting, the early declaration by Petey that he won, and the convoluted caucus counting that gave Petey more delegate equivalents despite Bernie getting quite a few more votes in both rounds worked. Petey was used to take Bernie out but Petey is not going to do so well in SC--have no idea about NV caucus. Depends on union votes in Las Vegas for that one.

610 German SF are a thing because the only military thing Germany has done since the bad old days was the hostage rescue in Mogadishu in the 70s.

While we're making fun of Germany, their presumptive next girl chancellor just stepped down because her party won something.

A state (Thueringen) chancellor went to a "conservative" (CDU) candidate because they teamed up with the "far right" (AfD) candidate to take the seat away from the commie (SDP) incumbent.

So, just to repeat, the CDU formed a coalition to take the seat away from their enemy SPD. Got it?

Well, the CDU (not really so much conservative anymore) has a policy against working with the AfD (conservative in our sense and not at all Nazi) so the guy who won the race stepped down. And the girl who was going to be chancellor stepped down because she couldn't stop her party from winning an election.

I am not making any of this up.

In a big war SF will go back to force recon and odd jobs. Combined arms and the ferocious consumption of materials and ammunition will continue to illustrate the importance of air superiority. I suspect that the queen of the battlefield will reassert herself with propelled and precision munitions. Lacking those it will still be about the simple desire to prevail by the infantry. Make sure you've got plenty of supplies ammo and trucks. And jets. And rockets. Tanks would be nice too. But don't forget lots and lots of gasoline diesel and JP4. Bring extra ammo.

Not according to his latest "Small Town" tv ads. He totes respects hard working, middle America. Sadly, there are probably people dumb enough to buy that. Someone should do a mashup of his "small town" ads with voiceovers from his "intelligentsia" speech.

My dog, Pogo, asleep on the bed behind me, is a Bassett cross Border Collie. She is the very image of a Walker Coonhound. She bays, chases wabbits, and also has the herding instinct.

715 VDH has a great article on Rush at National Review today, below is an excerpt, and it is a great read.

https://tinyurl.com/u25ctq6

... Stranger still, Limbaugh has prospered through two generations and picked up millions of listeners who were not born when he first went national and who had no idea of why or how he had become a national presence.

He certainly did not capture new listeners by adjusting to the times. While tastes changed and the issues often metamorphosed, he did not.

He remained conservative, commonsensical, and skeptical of Washington and those in it, as if he knew all the predictable thousand faces of the timeless progressive project, whose various manifestations reappear to mask a single ancient and predictable essence: the desire of a self-appointed group of elites to expand government in order to regiment the lives of ordinary people, allegedly to achieve greater mandated equality and social justice but more often to satisfy their own narcissistic will to power.

719 Jim Treacher once described Ann Coulter as "an emaciated Gorgon". For me, the mystery is why didn't Bill Maher turn to stone when he dated her. I can't say for certain, but I suspect it had something to do with the fact that he already had rocks in his head.

Coulter is a Brilliant Brain as a conservative, and a Damaged Soul as to a Human Being.

But then, aren't we all?

It's just that she pushes things all the way out to the extreme end of both sides of the Bell Curve.

we'd only lived on the current FOB a couple of years, well over a decade ago when, mid-afternoon, i heard a series of shots ring out (sounded 9mm to me).

the news vulture showed up before the ghetto bird, and then, finally, the sirens.

they wheeled off the one shitbird, whilst on camera, who was smiling and gave, IIRC, a thumbs up to the chopper.

never saw if anyone got caught, stood trial, etc.

i wrote it off as a NHI incident.

IIRC, "dulce de leche" is just sweetened evaporated milk, or close enough as to make no difference.

731 I'm reluctant to cheer on nutty Democratic candidates because they're easier to beat. The Democrats did the same with Reagan in 1980 and Trump in 2016. I'd rather see a Democrat who wouldn't destroy the Republic if elected, since that's always going to be a nontrivial chance.

Tinnitus. No beanie required. Ask me how I know.

Curious fact?

I can sit in an audiologist's booth, and record an amazing range of auditory acuity.

And I can also press the button to precise frequencies of where the piercing howling enters into the range of awareness.

Notice, I said "range". Not "time"

The time is "constant".

But I've trained my brain to hear "around" it, such as it is.

I can still hear and enjoy high end audio Hi Fi equipment.

And when it's off, "enjoy" the high end squeal of a never ending mic-feedback sound.

Oh well.

I destroyed my extreme upper end hearing. Well, I'll rephrase that, metal drummers destroyed my upper end hearing. A snare drum can be like a gunshot if you got the right neanderthal beating on it. I have no tinnitus though, but I could have destroyed whatever hears that too. lol
I don't listen to high end stereos, because usually the only real time I listen to music is when I have a guitar in my hands, because if music is playing, I gotta play along, so there is no point having a killer stereo if my guitar amps are just going to murder it. lol

Ducle de leche is very sweet. Try mixing some cream cheese with it to cut some of that sweetness. Plus, with the cream cheese, the frosting would be a little stiffer not to mention less work than beating (up) some poor, innocent egg whites.

761 Re: post 382 -- the tradition you write of is "auftragstaktik" -- basically adapting tactics to deal with developing realities in order to accomplish the main higher goal. This was really established by cavalry general Friedrich Von Seydlitz during the Battle of Zorndorf in 1758. Seydlitz twice refused Frederick the Great's orders to attack the Russians head on (he flanked). The third order said "Getten Sie dein Ass back hier now or dein head chopped off will be" (paraphrasing). His response was basically, "The king can do whatever he wants with my head after the battle, but during the battle will he please allow me to use it?" He won, went on to glory, and that's why the name is Von Seydlitz, not Seydlitz. Heh.

767 This isn't any good for pizza but it's good for warming up wrapped stuff.
You know how if you MW a burger that's gotten cold it doesn't work out too well cause usually you use too much or too little time and it also will really wilt the lettuce and other veggies because MW's work on the moisture in what you're trying to "cook" and the veggies have a lot of that.
Plus the meat will come out a bit dry.
So. Face with this conundrum I flashed upon using my extra large heating pad. (extra large - 24" ) is required cause you fold it over and put the burger(s) in between the folds. Use the appropriate heat setting (I used medium ymmv) and it keeps them warm (cause they got cold getting them home) and will keep them warm for a few hours thus making a tasty (and dare I say improved) burger that you don't have to wolf down to get the taste and you don't have to go and zap it in the MW and make it all manky and such.

Huh. That is interesting? Are the receptors nicotine related or for something else?

I remember reading something years ago where studies were saying that people's reactions to nicotine can be profoundly different- hence some people are far more profoundly addicted to smoking. The article implied that this could be the case for other drug addicts. It sort of jived with my experience of some people just being able to quit and others who seem to go through hell and are very prone to relapse.

826 "16 year old kitties. IDK how long the lifespan is, but 16 sounds like a lot. "

G'morning, Salty.

She and her late departed sister grew up feral in the alleys and fields behind our house in Gaeta.

Mrs VIA would take food out to the entire herd of maybe 12 kittens of various ages from various litters daily, and both of them began to come near her when the food showed up.

One day they followed our OTHER three from our previous tour to Italy into the house to eat, and then scooted out the patio door, which always stayed open during the day.

Anyhow, she's still semi-feral, and taking her to a vet for routine care has always been a challenge throughout her life.

But.....toothless, and with lifelong slight lung damage from a respiratory virus that almost killed her as a kitten, she's still with us.

When we move to the new house, she will spend her remaining days here with Grammy, who has spoiled the hell out of her.

It's a good fit for both of them, and we know she will be taken care of, rather than the stress of another long distance move.

Nicotine is extremely addicting. Smoking killed my father, who worked very hard to stop. He stopped too late.

One of the Chem Department heads I knew had a favorite story about how he saved the life of a student.

She had inadvertently sat in a thin layer of nicotine in a lab. Putting pure nicotine on skin can kill in 5 minutes. The Prof took her pants off and got her in a shower, to save her. Maybe he had not had the healing touch of a young coed, but he did like that story.

No argument on the nicotine front. My Pappaw tried quitting several times. It is not what killed him in the end, but it certainly did not help matters.

My Grandma quit, but it was extremely difficult for her.

My grandpa quit with no issues according to my mom.

My aunt (Mom's sister) quit as if it was no big deal.

I was able to quit cold turkey for 5 and a half years, but started back up like a moron at/after a buddies wedding. I since pretty much just switched the delivery method to vaping and have not had a real cigarette for... 8 years in August.

True on the going outside to vape.

As far as the charging, mine stays charged all day and I just top it off at night.

Liquid, at least for the moment is far cheaper than a carton of cigarettes and lasts about as long.

As far as downsides, the biggest thing I have found is a cigarette is pretty much a self contained timer. You smoke the butt and after about five minutes, you are done. The problem with vaping is you can find yourself just sitting on the couch and before you know it, you have vaped a crap ton, almost continuously.

I recommend vaping for people having a hard time quitting, it works well for some people.
And nicotine is harmless except for being addictive. The negative effects of smoking come from, uh...smoking.
Read that gov anti-vaping website. More weasel words than a Schiff press conference. And note any warning label anywhere for nicotine. It causes diddly.

I was watching some college b-ball last night. I see a blurb about California okaying college players to do endorsements.
The NCAA wants congress to step in.

I'm sure both of these things will work out just fine
Posted by: Bruce at February 12, 2020 06:39 AM (vd8XM)


There are really very few players that would get any significant endorsement. And really if the NCAA went along with it they probably could get back in the video game licensing market since I think part of what killed the NCAA football games was the use of player likenesses. And it seems really simple you get an endorsement deal you don't get a scholarship or your scholarship is reduced by the income you make off the endorsement.

Last weekends first 'Cease Fire' weekend shooting victims adjusted upward from 10 to 15 wounded.

Maryland considering legislation that would make the act of styling packages off of a porch a felony offense.

Maryland refuses to consider legislation that would change theft of a firearm from a misdemeanor to a felony.

Only in Maryland could it be a felony to steal someones Amazon package of reusable straws from someones porch.
Yet if one breaks into a home, and steals a firearm, it's only a slap on the wrist.

907 Why do Democrats think they can beat Trump? Because their constant smearing of his reputation and character seem to be working. A Democrat strategist writing in todays WSJ says:

Any other president presiding over vigorous job creation and sustained full employment would enjoy robust approval. But Mr. Trump's job approval lags far behind his rating on the economy. Only 37% of registered voters think he is honest. While about half the electorate approves of his acquittal in the impeachment trial, only 40% believe it cleared him of wrongdoing in the Ukraine matter.

Unlike the CCP Media, Government, and Scientists coming out a few days ago declaring the source was the pangolin.

But the CCP would definitely want you to ignore public documented papers like this proving they were effing with SARS in a lab post 2003. Like the 2004 paper on SARS and HIV.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/ S0006291X04001214?via%3Dihub

Abstract
We have expressed a series of truncated spike (S) glycoproteins of SARS-CoV and found that the N-terminus 14-502 residuals were sufficient to bind to SARS-CoV susceptible Vero E6 cells. With this soluble S protein fragment as an affinity ligand, we screened HeLa cells transduced with retroviral cDNA library from Vero E6 cells and obtained a HeLa cell clone which could bind with the S protein. This cell clone was susceptible to HIV/SARS pseudovirus infection and the presence of a functional receptor for S protein in this cell clone was confirmed by the cell-cell fusion assay. Further studies showed the susceptibility of this cell was due to the expression of endogenous angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) which was activated by inserted LTR from retroviral vector used for expression cloning. When human ACE2 cDNA was transduced into NIH3T3 cells, the ACE2 expressing NIH3T3 cells could be infected with HIV/SARS pseudovirus. These data clearly demonstrated that ACE2 was the functional receptor for SARS-CoV.

958 Looks like the Harley Quinn movie hasn't quite recouped it's budget yet (Boxofficemojo).

Isn't this the time of year that studios usually release their failures? Are audiences getting tired of Hollywood? Were they expecting a woke fest? Or was this just bad marketing?

It'll make money, eventually, but it doesn't look like a big success.

960 Too bad Bernie did not get Socialist NHS heart treatments

The University of Oxford led study found between 1998 and 2012, survival rates for people aged over 45 with heart failure showed no improvement.

I thought that, according to Hollywood accounting, they're all failures.

962 Let's say Bernie wins and has a fatal heart attack next October. Does his VP candidate become the Presidential candidate, and appoint a new VP?

967 You go Liz!!!!
My Senator, I think, as she's done squat for Mass.
I want her to stay in as long as possible to cause divisiveness.

She's not pandering enough. If she panders more, she'll win it all.

Nope. He should stay on the ticket. I mean, if the dead can vote, why not run for office? I don't believe a pulse is listed among the requirements for the presidency. And don't they deserve a president they can identify with?

975 Howdy y'all? Thanks MisHum. Oh, sorry to hear you have the crud. My wife is has it also.

What's the deal with Buttplug? Is he the mayor? Or the former mayor, I hear both of them about half the time. The media sucks on accuracy.
