20151128 00:44 Skidmark I wonder when the baddies are going to pull a USA Cole speedboat on a Med cruise ship.
20151128 00:40 Skidmark Shipman, that Italian shotgun I ordered for you might not make it by Christmas.
20151128 00:15 trailing wife According to Drudge, 97% of Americans don't care about climate change.

Mike N., I'm well, if a bit frazzled. Thank you for asking. Trailing daughter #2 graduated from university and got married at the beginning if the summer, then was transferred to Dallas by her new employer at the end if the September. So Mr. wife and I, and the young man's parents, spent the summer helping the kids get Young Man's house ready for sale. The kids have acquired a great many skills they hadn't realized they were going to need. At Rantburg, Fred's been recovering from surgery, and Besoeker joined the ranks of the moderators. Oh, and we have a resident poet laureate now, which is great fun.

20151127 21:31 Pappy Speaking of ice storms:

Only four countries now have majorities in favour of their governments setting ambitious targets at a global conference in Paris. In a similar poll before the Copenhagen meeting in 2009, eight countries had majorities favouring tough action.

The number rating climate change as a very serious issue in richer countries declined significantly from 2009, while support for strong action at the Paris conference has only grown in three of the 20 countries polled.

Canada, France, Spain and the UK are the only four with majorities in favour of their governments taking a leading role.

20151127 21:09 Pappy S'okay, Ship.
20151127 20:11 Mike N. Best lyrics I've heard all day.
20151127 19:57 Shipman Welp, it wasn't the end of the world, but after the loss of the su-24, and the sudden the marriage of DBlues, reappearances of AB, DD and Mike, it damn sure gives us a nice rehearsal of the end times. Anyone need a Lucky?

BTW you may have noticed my posting style is a bit off, sorry.

Oh well, yeah,, I do need an auxiliary dawg, I tried to steal a kittuah this PM, no success, my calling and stalking skill set have atrophied badly.

Posting crazy is my way of dealing with fear.
20151127 19:47 Pappy All that for the last few lyrics. Sheesh.
20151127 19:46 Pappy
20151127 19:44 Shipman Mike! I am in brutal war with NPO, come home immediately!

Also: how the hell are ya buddy?

Heh Dave D.
That's all,
Dave D. Heh. :)
20151127 19:18 Deacon Blues Wondering eyes. Sheesh!
20151127 19:18 Deacon Blues But what to my wandering eyes should appear, but 10 extra pounds on hips, thighs, and rear.

20151127 18:48 Mike N. I never was any good at posting articles.


20151127 18:36 Mike N. Dinner tonight will be the doctor-unnaproved Jimmy Dean-enhaced Stop Top stuffing accompanied by burgers. Burgers have no bun in order to make rooom for more cheddar.

The side dish is deviled eggs made with vinegar, mustard and creamy horseradish topped with table onion.

I hope nobody was looking to eat healthy after Thanksgiving.
20151127 18:21 Mike N. Been very good, TW. I hope you can say the same?

It's funny to see your reaction to Dave D. I saw the name and thought, I wonder when he started coming back around.
20151127 17:24 trailing wife Mike N and Dave D?? My cup runneth over! Gentlemen, be very welcome. How have you been?
20151127 15:22 Dave D. Congratulations, Deacon!!
20151127 14:54 Mike N. Then you got married just in time!
20151127 14:39 Deacon Blues Thank you all, but after 21 years of being a bachelor we have everything we need. We've known each other for 40 years and been Best Friends for most of that time. It seemed the thing to do at the time. We won't regret it. She's a certified nursing assistant so when I get feeble in a few years I have someone to take care of me.
20151127 13:48 Mike N. What the hell is it with Tennessee? They have a Lebanon, and now I learn they also have a Persia?

Anyplace else there DHS should be aware of?

Also, Deacon do you need a Crock-Pot to go with the mixer?
20151127 13:09 Shipman Awesome Deacon! Do you need a mixer?
20151127 12:48 trailing wife Heartiest congratulations, Deacon Blues!
20151127 12:04 badanov I guess Col. Girkin's information wasn't so far off after all.
20151127 11:49 badanov A moment of silence for a fallen brother.

Congrats, DB
20151127 10:08 Deacon Blues LOL, Pappy. Thanks.
20151127 09:55 Pappy um, congrats?
20151127 09:33 Deacon Blues Morning, All. I has a Bombshell to beat all Bombshells to reveal this morning. My Sweetheart and I ran off and got married this past Monday morning. No one at the Courthouse will perform a wedding anymore because they don't want to perform same-sax weddings so we went to the Persia General Store in Persia, Tennessee. Pictures will be posted at a later date.
20151126 23:50 Skidmark Guess you don't need much counter-mortar tracking with that flare, Bad.
20151126 21:29 trailing wife Rudaw occasionally features a report on a foreign volunteer. I have occasionally posted them in the Burg.
20151126 21:07 Pappy I know of one private group that's sending trainers to the Kurds.

No doubt the FBI is getting info from when passports are applied for or renewed. It isn't that hard to see if the holder has had military service; maybe even a trigger if it's less than, say a five year break.

I also wonder if the Turks, the Sauds and the Emirates aren't liaising with the USG on Americans scheduled to fly in.
20151126 18:21 badanov After giving his flock a fiery, frightening sermon on the price and pain of sin, Brother Leon glared out over the congregation and asked,"Now tell me, Who among us loves sin?!" Slowly, a dainty hand on a small,frail arm was lifted into the air at the back of the church. Leon was dismayed to see that the hand belonged to the oldest member of his church, Miss Sarah Jane Cooper, all of 95 years old! "Sister Sarah Jane ! Why do you love Sin?" he gasped. The little old woman laughed and apologized,"I'm sorry preacher-I thought you said Gin."
20151126 16:52 badanov New mortar pic
20151126 15:56 Grunter Obama is in a pickle if Col. Girkin is correct.
20151126 15:21 newc I think the Rooshuns are going to help our Kurds.
20151126 14:25 badanov I do not think there is a unified field theory to all this news about US military fighting with the Kurds.
20151126 14:23 badanov A lot of moving parts. I know that some private contractors, ex spec ops, ex riflemen of some kind have gone to fight/train with the Kurds. They say that once they get there, it takes about 2 weeks for orientation and to be checked out before they get to the front, if they are fighting.

One fella said he was stopped by the FBI in Chicago, who took his body armor from him. He didn't know how they found out he was going to northern Syria/Iraq, but they did.

The Rooshuns would almost have to be keenly aware that some ex militaries were going to help the Kurds. We also know that some official spec ops had been sent ton the region to train and "evaluate". So they Rooshuns would have ton be aware of that as well.

So, at the moment I do not know where Col Girkin got his news, but I am monitoring now more than ever.
20151126 14:02 badanov In a few areas. But overall...
20151126 13:55 Shipman We can't have peeps freelancing without the CIC backing. This is getting crazy. I don't like this, not one little bit.

With all due respect to my good buddy Frank g,
.. (And the turbans Od course) nHillary will be a vast improvement. :(
20151126 13:50 Shipman ?
20151126 13:34 Pappy RT also mentioned the Turk convoy.
20151126 13:20 Pappy The question is whether it's against Mr. Obama's orders, or "against his orders."

The second question is, if true, whether it's under DOD or Klingon auspices.
20151126 11:08 badanov FSB Colonel Igor Girkin reports a US special forces team of about 50 operators entered Syria yesterday, with the intention of helping the Kurds, he says against Obama's orders.
20151126 11:05 badanov Things are getting interesting,
20151126 11:01 badanov Ukrainian journalist Andriy Tsaplienko is saying the Rooshuns have bombed a Turkish humanitarian convoy, Dozen dead.
20151126 09:09 Pappy Greetings and Happy T'anksgiving from Hell With Saguaros.
20151126 04:22 Shipman Olde Doc Young, who is white will be there for brow beating the incouridgeablez guidance. Maybe John Frum and Seafarious will help me start a Cargo Cult based on THE SPOT. All things are possible with mushrooms with imagination and gin and time.
20151126 04:10 Shipman It's in the darkest part of the night I find comfort in Rantburg. I am giving consideration to opening a friendly parody site, I shall call it Runtberg. I will fill it with Sock-Puppets of all types and stripes. BadMan made me think of this with his gruesome Cheers remark. Muck4Doo, Lucky and Railing-Wife will be there, along with Frank C.,And The Bourbons, Fappy will drop in for the occasional frown-of doom. And Anemic Conspiracy will have a cameo or two. Tri-Tag of the Vultures will lend it class and WeirdEnuf will add glamours.

20151125 19:28 badanov Fallout 4 also has the Cheers bar. Norm and the postman both are there as skeletons as are Sam and the others, but the bar Cheers is still there, Gruesomely funny.
20151125 14:17 49 Pan So our bumbling mumbling president get up today and says not to worry, there are no credible threats against America. Yet the FBI and local authorities are on highest alert. Every time he says its under control all hell breaks loose. Hold on folks, gonna get interesting...

20151125 08:36 trailing wife The end of history will wait a bit longer, it appears. Turkey is making humble, conciliatory noises while Russia bounces rubble where yesterday Turkmen jihadis were foolishly triumphant. Russia is also taking other measures -- information posted in the Burg.
20151125 03:44 Shipman The last time I saw serious history was the Bush-Gore election. I was in the hospital for the first time in my life and I was wild to get the IV taken off and take up my camera (digital!) and go downtown to the capital. I didn't make it to the nurses station the first time :(. That entire 3 weeks drives me nuts, I should have been there.

That said we will be making pot roast for the end of the world dinner, maybe some white acre pea side dish. Then the Turkey deluge.

P.S. Thanks for yawls kind words, I am ready because Ich kann nicht ander. :)
20151125 01:24 SteveS Thinking good thoughts for Shipman and Fred while watching the wheels come off the 21st century. So how's that End of History thing working out for everybody?
20151124 16:28 Thing From Snowy Mountain Damn it, Vlad, don't let yourself get distracted by Turkey, find someone to bomb who's a major producer, damnit!

Yes, I am weak.
20151124 10:08 Grunter And all the best to Fred.
