Today’s FISA update is actually yesterday’s news. Having realized that doing the right thing kinda feels good the House Dems want a secret session to discuss the legalities, thinking that people are beginning to notice that their civil liberties have gone missing. Today seemed to have been devoted to Waxman’s hearings on the absent RNC [...]
Which caused me to remember this quote I found somewhere (sorry, can’t remember where): “Bill Buckley exists to wrap up peoples’ base, greedy, low-life, mean and nasty views into high-faluting language so that they don’t have to go around thinking they are just mean, stupid and nasty, but instead have a philosophy like Buckley’s.” ~Lars-Erik [...]
And how I was sort of impressed with Elke Kahr? Well… go read. Dazed and confused. …..
FISA update from dday at Digby’s place. I’m still having connection difficulties. I hope to be back later tonight or tomorrow with more news, as I can find it, but that’s all I’ve got for now. In the meantime let’s channel some resolve Nancy Pelosi’s way.
Lying Niece (formerly known as Niece #4) has, basically, taken the TRUTH that I told her, added some humongous bullshit lies on top of it, and used it to completely sever all of my ties to my other nieces & one remaining nephew (not that he ever wanted anything to do with me in the [...]
Yes, I kinda-sorta get into it, stoopid as that is. I think Terrible and LPF will sort of understand. Am NOT one of those people who get star-struck. I have met and known local and over-regional ‘stars’ here through my work, and if there is one thing I know, if they are artists, they don’t [...]
Revolving is of course always hungry work so here’s a recipe to warm the belly and soul of even the most ravenous revolver. This one is quick and easy since there isn’t always a lot of time between actions. Canned soups supply the stock but the additions make this plenty hearty and tasty! This is [...]
Please sign! I’ve been having terrible problems with my Verizon DSL connection so have not been online much, but I was told that some equipment (or something) had been changed this afternoon. We’ll see…
Today, we received an email of Sad News. I can’t begin to tell you how much I have treasured this woman over so many years. I have been grateful to call her my friend. I don’t remember how many bars I closed with her. I will miss Carol so much.
Turns out that Dameon’s mama and auntie have been spinning tales about me to Teh Dick and his Fallen Uterus, and as a result of this back-stabbing opportunist horseshit, I had to bring my cats, who haven’t been moved in five years, to Cat Haven Cathy’s house. Needless to say, they are VERY not fucking [...]
Austrian national radio gave out some ‘demographics’ on who is voting for O’Bambi this morning. The ‘uneducated’. Uh-HUH. The ‘LOWER’ middle class. (WHA????) ‘some women,’ The tone was the key. ‘Some’ women. Uh-HUH. What Planet do they live on? And misogynist, much?( Ok, we gonna talk about SLUTS, here or WHAT? I was a slut… [...]
But today wasn’t exactly my best day…. I got ‘reflective’. I HATE ‘reflective’.
FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK IT FUCK THEM. I want a .357 magnum, a fast car with a tankful of jet fuel, and enough cash to get me to another continent. [...]
Yes, a little more on FISA. Just this, from Cliff Schecter’s place. I apologize to you who have dial-up, but, as an extra enticement, this clip features Keith O. We do have a bit of a reprieve, with the House in recess. Yes, the Protect America Act lapsed on the 15th, much to the joy [...]
I inadvertently left out a phase of teh Gosplz of teh Ceiling Cat, so here it is, and here’s hoping that it will console you out of the nightmares. Heh.Meanwhile, back here on Earth, there’s Real Cat issues… Many, many sincere thanks to Terrible, always first to help, Miss Poppy, gawdess of all things sacreligious, [...]
Meet the new addition at the farm Valentines morning. I’m no big fan of the day but this was kinda cute. It sorta looks like a heart…. And Happy Practice Day !!
When you get thrown into the mill of Austrian bureacracy…. Interesting.
