|20130525 10:14||Pappy||Morning from HWS.|
Phoenix ComiCon today.
|20130525 09:11||badanov||Some Saturday morning Kevin Fowler:|
|20130524 23:21||badanov||Some late, late Friday night Count Basie with Tony Bennett:|
|20130524 20:42||Pappy||It is a rather odd story.|
|20130524 15:06||Bright Pebbles||Odd Insti link..|
It seems men don't talk like women (and as always it's men's fault).

wow just wow.

More footage of Woolwich islamoscum.
|20130524 10:15||Glenmore||Somebody needs to capture a photo of 'not Frank's' bridge in Skagit - I'm sure it would be an appropriate avatar for a lot of Rantburg stories.|
|20130523 21:49||Dale||This girl has got some Chutzpah;|
|20130523 17:43||swksvoFF ***SPAM?***||Wuz reading the peacock news about the president being heckled.|
Code Pink says it was madea
Neil Munro, a conservative, also heckles
CP+MB had super star status but with this she is just some blurry face in a crowd? So far in the tank, if they need help they don't call the police they call roto-rooter.
|20130523 17:02||trailing wife||Thank you, tipper. One of the other moderators Spam Copped it, and I've sent a message to Fred and badanov requesting the IP be blocked.|

|20130522 20:12||swksvolFF||He has some imaging to do after the Marine Preciptationary Force:|
It took six months after Benghazi for Obama to call for air cover.
When the president was in trouble and needed help, the Marines responded within 5 seconds.
Because deploying umbrellas is against Marine SOPs, a lawyer would have forbidden the mission.
|20130522 19:08||Thing From Snowy Mountain||He couldn't do anything about Benghazi; he'd forgotten to pay for his xbox live connection because of the Sequester.|
|20130522 18:42||Sherry||Just an observation I've been thinking about since yesterday:|
After Bin Laden: Picture of Obama in the situation room
After Moore, OK tornado: Picture of Obama in the situation room (released yesterday)
After Benghazi: No picture of Obama in the situation room
|20130522 17:53||Shipman||Wonder why he feels safe enough to make a statement?|
|20130522 16:40||Pappy||tw, no I hadn't. I've got it bookmarked now.|
|20130522 14:53||Bright Pebbles||Video of Woolwich Terrorist |

|20130522 12:00||trailing wife||Pappy, Drudge has this up. mHave you seen it?|
|20130522 11:46||Shipman||Don't know what this is either, but it looks to be closer to my price point than a Grand Caravan or any Otter.|
|20130522 09:56||Bright Pebbles||Merkel, the Red footsoldier: German chancellor under fire over Communist links as image of her in uniform is released|

Thank you that is good to hear. They have respect for you as you do for your mother. Thanks for the update on Lotp.|
|20130522 07:21||Deacon Blues||Swaziland's Civil Aviation Authority has threatened to fine witches who fly their broomsticks higher than 150 meters. An official with the agency said broomsticks are covered by the same law that bans kites and toy helicopters from flying too high. A local newspaper said it wasn't clear if he was being serious|
|20130522 04:58||Shipman||Thanks AP, sweet conversion.|
|20130522 01:29||trailing wife||I am curious what your daughters would say if you did that. |
Dale, for reasons beyond my understanding, the trailing daughters -- and also part time daughter and formerly temporary daughter -- think I am adorably eccentric. They all tell Mommy TW stories to their friends, who don't believe a word until they meet me.
lotp is taking time for dealing with her corner of the analog world.
|20130522 00:13||trailing wife||OldSpook, they may not be able to see the article after the rollover without contacting him for permission, though I rolled it over for a second day. That was one of Fred's security features during the R1ghth4ven kerfuffle. You'll want to lookinto that.|
|20130521 23:57||OldSpook||Good work Pappy on that timeline - I emailed a permalink to it to several people.|
|20130521 22:55||Pappy||She's posted schtuff on Facebook.|
|20130521 22:39||Dale||Come on TW. If you do it I'll do it.:)|
I am curious what your daughters would say if you did that.
Say what has happened to Lotp. She has been very quiet.
|20130521 21:15||Alaska Paul||Shipman----here is a Cessna 208 Grand Caravan landing in Vancouver, BC|
|20130521 21:00||badanov||I stand by my contention that Obama has had his thumb on the scale the whole time.|
|20130521 20:17||trailing wife||I won't get one, but golly, it's tempting!|
|20130521 19:45||Alaska Paul||Shipman------that is a deHaviland Single Otter on floats with a turbine engine conversion. Makes it a whole new plane by getting rid of the old radial engine.|
|20130521 17:40||Pappy||DB: One of the State Department contractors,Glen Doherty, was involved in the tracking down of "manpads", so that would jive.|
|20130521 16:45||Shipman||Spotted off the deck at Cedar Key... I am fairly certain it's a Caravan, but not sure.|
It's under tow for reasons unknown to me.
Also Flickr is making a desperate move for more members.... 1 terabyte free storage for your photos. I'm vaguely annoyed at paying for using significantly less than that but I am sure I will get a free look a FlickrGoldExtraForCoolD00Ds, so I got that.
|20130521 12:37||swksvolFF||We were out one night responding to a town which had taken a legitimate brush from a tornado. We were doing our door-to-door safety check when I heard on the radio that the town we were in was totally wiped out. I said "Oh sh!t, then where are we!?|
Glad to see the death toll down. That was a tornado which didn't care if you did everything right; if you are in the wrong spot, then.
|20130521 12:35||Deacon Blues||Interesting, if true:|
Stevens’ mission in Benghazi, they will say, was to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups issued to them by the State Department, not by the CIA. Such a mission would usually be a CIA effort, but the intelligence agency had opposed the idea because of the high risk involved in arming “insurgents” with powerful weapons that endanger civilian aircraft.
Hillary Clinton still wanted to proceed because, in part, as one of the diplomats said, she wanted “to overthrow Gaddafi on the cheap.”
This left Stevens in the position of having to clean up the scandalous enterprise when it became clear that the “insurgents” actually were al-Qaeda – indeed, in the view of one of the diplomats, the same group that attacked the consulate and ended up killing Stevens.

|20130521 10:52||badanov||Death toll in OKC has been revised downwards to 24.|
|20130521 07:38||Glenmore||Old Spook, I fear the problem is not with the GOP but with DC. I'd say it's something in the water, but I don't think they drink water there.|
|20130521 02:07||OldSpook||There appears to be no limit to the fecklessness of the GOP in DC.|
|20130520 21:28||Pappy||The GOP leadership will respond if they wish to retain power. The Tea Party and the conservative wing will put increasing pressure on the DC party.|
Hopefully you're right.
I think they'll waver precisely because they're terrified of being accused of being tools for the Tea Party and the conservative wing.
|20130520 20:15||Glenmore||Shipman, did the primitive oil show come through?|
|20130520 19:49||badanov||Some Monday evening Dwight Yoakam:|
|20130520 17:50||Shipman||I am a Bligh fan-boy, it was his unfortuante fate to Command the Bounty as a Lieutenant and not a Captain (1 rank in that time I think) A Captain got 3 or more Marines. A Lieutenant none. It's the dark secret of the USN and HMRN that Marines are really there to kill frisky sailors if the time comes, their assault capability are just gravy.|
True story... my Uncle Charles was a Seagoing Type, perpetually annoyed and seeing deviant behavior where, well seeing deviant behavior in Norfolk. He ended up as a body guard to Adrm King and then a (yeah) a copper. He mellowed into a good chief of Police in Fernandiana Beach Fl and later into an awesome produce salesman in the bad part of TLH. I miss him, he was a hard core bastard, an enormous man with pent up anger at all things that he

4. was mkin fun, like his nephew. :(
funf. Listen to your older relatives.
|20130520 16:53||Bright Pebbles||@Dale |
Really the same side of the coin.
Suburban poverty soars. Map of hot spots.
|20130520 10:26||mrp||1. I know it was. I read the book.|
3. The GOP leadership will respond if they wish to retain power. The Tea Party and the conservative wing will put increasing pressure on the DC party. That's why Obama and his people targeted the Tea Party (and Sarah Palin for that matter). They are the real opposition and the true threat.
4. I read the Wretchard excerpt that you posted.
|20130520 06:19||Thing From Snowy Mountain||1. The USS Caine was fictional.|
That's what all you college boys think... but geometric logic says otherwise!
