20150424 08:06 Deacon Blues I'be seen stuff claiming the vet shot the cat. Don't believe it myself.
20150423 11:21 swksvolFF BP, that is to the point

from the department of unfortunate titles:
Wichita news reports about a cat which was shot with an arrow, taken to the vet, and tended to, lived. PETA gets on board and offers a reward for information leading to the naming of the archer. Screen shows the cat with arrow in it. Title underneath:
"$2000 reward for cat with arrow"
20150422 23:36 Thing From Snowy Mountain Hello guys. Darn I'm tired. Good night.
20150422 23:13 Jan Oldspook, if you look to have your knee replacements, check out Porter's Hospital, Colorado joint replacement. That's all they do, just shoulder, knee and hip replacements no other ortho surgeries. Good people.

20150422 00:00 Pappy Yeah... VA just 'suggested' that I enroll. Kinda funny since I work at an MTF and eligible for treatment there.

Oh, and the VA center I'd ultimately end up having to go to?

20150421 05:36 Shipman Good luck OS
20150420 23:56 OldSpook Will the public finally hold Pelosi and the left accountable for meeting and giving credence to Assad? No.

WTF does it matter. I'm just an angry old retired spook, not able to do anything other than watch anymore. Can't even go out on contracts. Just too old and brokedick - VA says I will need knee replacements but low priority due to age.

I think Ima take a break again for a bit. just go fishing and drinking (pretty close to the same thing)
20150420 23:50 OldSpook Note that they removed ONLY what the Syrian govt "declared" they had.
20150420 23:37 OldSpook 'scuse me while I vent.

Is the public finally getting a clue? We've known for years here in the real world just how evil the regimes in the middle east are - especially Syria.

MSM finally shows just how nasty Asssad and the mess in the Syria is.

Warning: actual footage of Sarin victims, including children twitching and dying as the camera rolls.

Those stocks from Iraq have showed up, or else the Baathists who made the ones in Iraq are now making them for the Baathists in Syria.

DAMNIT why dont the officials listen to us when we tell them the truth, and act whhen they could have?

This is what (emotionally) kills people in the spook business. We know how Cassandra felt. Its agony, like a knife twisting in the gut to have known and to not have been able to convince anyone to either believe, or treat it as important, or act when we still could. And its anger, because we told them, we warned them and they ignored us.

Its very hard to come to terms with this if you have a conscience. Fuck the Pols who can shrug this off, and the evil bastards who did the gassing to begin with. We should as a matter of course target them for death - even if we have to take out their entire palace.

20150419 13:05 Pappy One from wretchard:

George Friedman’s book, "Flashpoints: the emerging crisis in Europe" is tour d’horizon of European civilization. The main question it tries to answer is whether European history, with its tragedy and glory, has fundamentally changed. He begins his inquiry by describing the incredible arc of European achievement and disaster. It was on Europe that the Enlightenment was born. And it all came crashing down in the most destructive”thirty one years” (1914-1945) in human history.

The modern European peace, Friedman argues, was constructed by exiting from the game of power. The lesson they had “learned from the thirty-one years off destruction [were] that the benefits of power were not worth the price.” Yet as Friedman shows, all the fracture lines — the “borderlands” — from which European conflicts have flowed are still there. Now the question is whether the European model can survive the emerging social stresses and the renewed challenge of Russia. The falling birthrate prompted European industry to import immigrant — Muslim - labor to man their factories. But it did not change the relative economic efficiency between nations. A growing gap has emerged between Germany and Spain, Italy, Greece, and France so that once again, Berlin is the master of Europe. For the first time in hundreds of years, no single European country is in the first rank of world nations. It was America that welded modern Europe together to face the USSR in the years after 1945. It was the defeat of the Soviet Union that made the EU seem to work for a while after 1989 — until economic reality and the resurgence of Russia returned them to history. The American withdrawal from the world since 2008 has deprived the European project of hard power.

Reading the book is a reminder of how complicated European history is. Although the work is about Europe, always standing offstage, just out of sight is the United States of America. In fact, the implied answer to the question of whether Europe can remain at peace is “if America maintains it.”

20150419 11:06 badanov It appears (and I have not been following evennts in Mexico in a year or so) that whenever clamp on the media there was by the Mexican government has been lifted, so we are getting all of this information now, whereas before, it was just not reported.

So, I s'pect it has been going on constantly, just not widely reported.

Grats, 49P.

Re Mexico: Is it a control-of-territory issue, fallout from changes in the US drug market, or just the usual internecine warfare?

Heartiest congratulations, 49 Pan. You were not meant for a life of luxurious idleness. I always assume Mr. Wife will belong to a new job for the first six months while climbing the learning curve. But firehose is a good metaphor for the first month, yes.
