Thursday Open Thread – May 24th

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

      NY republicans are liberals that didn’t want to fight for a spot on the democrat ticket. Giuliani for example was just as big an anti-gun liberal as his predecessors. The republicans let Bloomberg run as a republican. Why? Because none of them cared what kind of P.O.S. liberal he really was. Maybe I’m being unfair to some of the upstate conservative republicans but you could shake a stick at them in a phone both and not hit one.

      I was watching the speech Obama gave at the Academy. I noticed a Cadet right behind him on the camera. Now I saw the Cadet and it looked like he was blinking his eyes in morse code. Wonder if anyone noticed it. The Cadet was right over Obamas right shoulder.

          No I was watching it live on one of the cable channels. It was so funny. Obama was babbling away and the Cadet behind him had his eyes closed. Then he would blink erratically then close his eyes for a bit. I had to think of a prisoner trying to send morse code when filmed by the enemy. It was very apparent. It was at the Air Force Academy for graduation. I think both CNN and MSNBC were showing it. Watch it if you can it is really funny.

        Oh, goodness. It had to happen. I have often stopped at any pictures of his endless prattle-making and observed the faces of those behind him. It’s astounding how totally expressionless they often are, even when he’s in a friendly venue. But the military settings are the most noticeable. I sort of hope the kid was not morse-coding for his own sake–if he was, I suspect he’ll pay a price he perhaps hadn’t thought through. And I also hope if he was, nobody takes note. Perhaps his superiors will just chuckle in private and say, “Good for him.” and never write it down.

          I was writing a paper with the sound off when I saw it. I know some code but forgot a lot of it and did not have time to check it out. Short blinks are dots and long are dashes. Then a long pause maybe a new word? Too funny.

          • Thanks, howie, for causing me to watch that entire taurusfimus-filled excuse for a speech. (/sarc 😉 ) Had to take 3 breaks to go puke, so I couldn’t see any firm pattern in the cadet’s blinks. He never seemed to get a steady cadence going, even though there was an awful lot of blinking. Maybe somebody else can concentrate long enough through that jackwad’s yammering to notice the pattern, but I can’t. He was here in town yesterday messing up traffic and hitting up rich Denver libs for more cash. I’m just glad he’s gone. Whew!

              Sorry about that. Luckily, I had the sound off. I can imagine what it must have been like with the sound on. I should have posted a warning label. (Viewing this with sound on may cause gagging and pukeing). I think the code was …. .

    Good morning, Treepers! Somewhere in this treasure trove of Trayvon Updates is a quote by step-mom Alesha, stating she raised Trayvon for 15 years.

    Did he ever even live with Sybrina, his loving birth mom, his ‘best friend’????

      I remember that quote because it really shows what a serial womanizer Tracy is in that it turns out they are still married as he introduces Brandi as his fiance. It made me wonder if he needed to make sure to have a woman in the picture to raise Trayvon.

    Interesting, but too short, piece on LINK/Democray Now this morning. The left-of-center crowd is upset that some Senators and Representatives asked DoJ/FBI if Holder’s legal justification for using drone strikes to kill US citizens outside of the US who are members of Al Qaeda could be used to justify drone strikes against US citizens inside of the US. Said Congresspersons have received no answer. to date. Wonder if Holder and the DNC are considering the economics of using drones to monitor and blast November election sites which are voting too Republican versus the costs of using the New Black Panthers again?

      Wow. I so appreciate those guys. Random question here, just because its on my brain. Grunt, do you know if Dick Rutan is still working on any of this type of capability? When we lived in the high desert, it was our privilege to almost breathe the same air he did. He lived about a mile further down the road from where we were.

      Please post related updates into the weekend? Makes me so mad what Pres Pampers has done to NASA, but it’s gratifying to see individuals fighting back and finding a way. Of course, Pampers had to try to lead from behind on it with his press release, but that’s ok. We’re learning to ignore him. He’s just a disgusting adolescent any more.

    BigFurHat from IOTW gets a nice plug from Thomas Lifson at American Thinker. The blogosphere just keeps expanding. If the MSM believes “the media world” is a limited “pie” that has to be cut “fairly”…just like their imagination that “wealth” is a limited pie that must be “cut fairly” …I’m sure they are clueless as to how the new media just keeps growing and growing and growing—expanding over here without losing any volume or edge over there. Free speech is a wonderful thing.

      And for some reason this “wealth pie” never includes Hollywood or the oil sheiks. I’m not condoning the article’s mentality, I just hate it always being about us. As far as media goes, they have a point. I’m not going to watch more than one channel at a time (except for last night flipping back and forth between baseball and hockey). The new media grows to the detriment of newspapers and decreased network viewers because it’s better. “Cut fairly”? Yeah, only when they (liberal media) are losing ground. Wasn’t an issue when they were on top.

        The only reason I got to thinking about it that way is because they’re always bellowing about the “wealth pie” and I wondered if they thought the same way about the media pie. If they do, they’re not having a very good year (in their own eyes). I’m just schadenfreuding.
