Overnight Open Thread (11-4-2012)

I have very limited bandwidth where I am  so tonight's little shindig will mostly DIY.

Why Wordsmiths Fell For Obama

Here Neo-neocon examines why supposedly conservative writers fell so hard for Obama in 2008 and stayed enamored for so long. It's also a good argument for why we should enjoy speechwriters' work but never trust them politically.

A Bet Is a Tax on Bullshit

After taking a lot of criticism over his model Nate Silver has made a bet on the outcome of his model. But the public editor at the NYT is not happy about this and had a severe case of the tut-tuts. However Alex Tabarok at Marginal Revolution points out that  putting your money where your model is actually results in better predictions. Even the most partisan still don't like losing money or a public wager.

The Long Road to the Majors

One of the good things about professional baseball is that its open to anyone with the skills regardless of background. The downside is that it's a long hard rad to make it to the show.

Commenter stats will appear tomorrow night.

The Worse the Education, The Greater the Funding
Posted on November 4, 2012 by The Political Hat

On the ballot this election day in southern Nevada, is a measure by the Clark County School District, which is 5th largest in the nation, to hike property taxes to pay for a $669 Million bond that purports to save crumbling schools and save students from a balmy 100+ °C Summer day.

Of course, the School District claims to be pinching pennies, even though they are willing to toss perfectly good furniture in order to have the snazziest new stuff.

Sadly, this is just an example of the school district spending more and more. In the last 50 years, the district has increased spending by 300%, adjusted for inflation, over the past 50 years, yet over a third of students fail to graduate!

How bad is it? The per pupil spending that is usually touted to demonstrate that the Clark County School District needs more money usually only included their General Fund; the thing is, that is only one of many funds. The Clark County School District has combined total expenditures from all fund for the 2012-2013 school year of $3,190,325,000.

35 From another site:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ article-2227011/ BEL-MOONEY-My-prudish-husband-left-I-lied-sex-life.html

When I met
my husband 40 years ago I knew he was ‘the one.’ He had firm opinions
on sex before marriage (outdated even then) and was a virgin.
As
I got to know him, it became clear that he’d never consider marrying
somebody with ‘history.’ He thought sex special and wouldn’t want to
imagine his wife having it with others.
But, by 22, I’d been having sex for four years. Madly in love and wanting him to marry me, I lied.

Any thoughts, morons and 'ettes?

Pretty good. Tossed out my dinner because it was hospital meatloaf, and while I'm willing to try all kinds of nasty things, that was not one of them. Then an hour ago, they came and told me that surgery was a go in the morning, so no food after midnite. But Jets pizza delivers to the hospital--Score! So I'm dining on a small combo and watching this horrible football game.

49 From that link:

"And it's not so much the fact that the woman lied about her sexual history - I'm hardly the first man to observe that most, if not all, non-virgin women reflexively lie about N - but the fact that she knew perfectly well that this was a major matter of principle to him and she proceeded to purposefully deceive him about it anyhow. It was more than a deception meant to be justified by the eventual ends, it was also a total lack of respect for the man, for his principles, and a shameless manipulation meant to prevent him from being permitted to make a very important decision about his own life. Notice that even now, she still fails to respect his principles."

67 Obama is a terrible public speaker.
He whistles like a tea kettle, his phony black shit is pathetically tranparentand, as for content and substance, he says exactly dick.
If he were white (which he halfway is, in any case), no one would say that he was worth a crap as a public speaker. It's embarassing to read some of this praise from libs and RINO conservatives.
After five years of his whistling and stammering and pandering and mediocre bullshit, I can't remember a single profound thing that he has ever said.

NEW CNN/OPINION RESEARCH POLL OUT
ROMNEY 49 OBAMA 49

ITS DEAD EVEN I TELL YOU DEAD EVEN

YOU COULDN'T SQUEEZE GREGS DICK BETWEEN THEM ITS SO CLOSE!

METHODOLOGY
A total of 1,010 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. All
respondents were asked questions concerning basic demographics, and the entire sample was weighted to reflect national Census
figures for gender, race, age, education, region of country, telephone usage and whether respondents own or rent their homes.
Registered voters were asked questions about their likelihood of voting, past voting behavior, and interest in the campaign; based
on answers to those questions, 693 respondents were classified as likely voters. Respondents who reported that they had already
cast an absentee ballot or voted early were automatically classified as likely voters. Among those likely voters, 41% described
themselves as Democrats, 29% described themselves as Independents, and 30% described themselves as Republicans.


BASED ON 307 REGISTERED VOTERS WHO DESCRIBE THEMSELVES AS DEMOCRATS AND 111 REGISTERED
VOTERS WHO DESCRIBED THEMSELVES AS INDEPENDENTS WHO LEAN DEMOCRATIC, FOR A TOTAL OF 418
REGISTERED DEMOCRATS-- (SAMPLING ERROR: +/- 5% PTS.)

BASED ON 293 REGISTERED VOTERS WHO DESCRIBE THEMSELVES AS REPUBLICANS AND 152 REGISTERED
VOTERS WHO DESCRIBE THEMSELVES AS INDEPENDENTS WHO LEAN REPUBLICAN, FOR A TOTAL OF 445
REGISTERED REPUBLICANS -- (SAMPLING ERROR: +/- 4.5% PTS.)

now look how they managed the likely voter breakdown

693 respondents were classified as likely voters.
41% described themselves as Democrats,
29% described themselves as Independents, and
30% described themselves as Republicans

-------------------

SO they have a tie among Likely Voters with a D+11 sample???

D + FUCKING ELEVENTY?

83 Nate Silver might as well put a money bet on his prognostications. His Political PECOTA is toast if he fails this time, if it really ever was "a thing."

He failed in 2010 here, he failed in 2010 in the UK. But he's still trading on his 2008 prediction on Obama and the House. But his time is up and good riddance! Just like in baseball three strikes and he is out.

Um, remember 2004? The polls in OH were "bad". Rove had setup a GOTV operation there that shocked everyone except for Rove. Same thing is happening here. Romney's GOTV has been phenomenol. I get several phone calls a day about the election. If Romney is doing an appearance within 3 hours of here, I get a phone call. The internals are good, but people still need to get out and vote.

One of the many scandals of stupidity from Detroit was that they were planning on buying chairs for the library that cost $1000 each. Yeah, thousand dollar chairs. And this is in a library in a city that was a national laughingstock over a school board member sending out illiterate emails.

111 Why Wordsmiths Fell For Obama

He gives a good speech. [ ... ] And he can turn a literary phrase.


I like neo, but that's just plain wrong and has been obviously so since the Indonesian Imbecile first started his public verbal diarrhea. He's a shitty speaker. He doesn't know when to put proper stress on phrases and sounds more contrived than a high school sophmore in his speeches. His "celebrated" race speech was beyond a joke and the after-speech antics and commentary he gave were laughable, at best. The minute he's without a prompter he comes off as a stone-cold retard and he's always had a problem making sense of any sort.

"Wordsmiths" fell for Barky because they're gullible, stupid dipshits and slaves to fashion.

Obama is a terrible public speaker.

He whistles like a tea kettle, his phony black shit is pathetically
tranparentand, as for content and substance, he says exactly dick.

If he were white (which he halfway is, in any case), no one would
say that he was worth a crap as a public speaker. It's embarassing to
read some of this praise from libs and RINO conservatives.

After five years of his whistling and stammering and pandering and
mediocre bullshit, I can't remember a single profound thing that he has
ever said.

Can you?

164 Obama's Unicorn Logic Failure

At the last of the 2012 Presidential Debates, Gov. Romney spoke of the need to keep up the Navy’s fleet strength in order for it to fulfill its mandated missions. Pres. Obama belittled this and spoke about “these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines” as if all other navy vessels were as outdated as “horses and bayonets.”

Of course, the military has more bayonets then it did a hundred years ago, and though our reliance on horses may be less, they still have a critical place in the military today.

What are “horses and bayonets” but the individual parts of a unicorn? Does this mean we don’t get the unicorns we were supposed to get from Obama after all?



What is striking about Obama’s unicorn logic is that he doesn’t seem to apply this to anything else. Education spending, for example has generally increased above the cost of inflation, and we are spending around a quarter of a million dollars per classroom in failing schools.

If doing more with less is the best choice for the military, then why isn’t this applicable to schools? Better curricula and more efficient use of fund could give better results for what we pay, or even if we paid less. But teachers’ unions are generally favorable to the Democratic coalition, while the brave men and women of our military are not. Ultimately, that is the true unicorn logic of Obama and the left.

185 If those internal on the CNN poll are correct, the MSM isn't even trying to hide their game any longer. They clearly did not want Democrats going into an election down 5-6 points. Pathetic.

If a D+11 poll has Romney and Obama tied, we're looking an 1988-style landslide for Mitt.

My thought on the polls was less "tinfoil hat" than many conservatives, but now I'm starting to really believe they are actively gaming these polls and are being shameless about it.

189 I find the following facts interesting:

(1) After months of projecting a high % O win, Nate Silver in the last 24-48 hours is now out with the meme that his model depends on the composition of the electorate. Everyone in the MSM has now picked up on this.

(2) Why did he do this? O's early voting projections in every state are off by around 5-8%, with increased R EV making the margins down by 10-15% in some cases. He's got the inside scoop from team O as well, I'm sure.

(3) The evidence in support of a more R turnout model is the tightening of races everywhere in blue but not red states. If this was 2008, we should be talking about MO, IN, and NC.

(4) Joe Trippi was on tonight saying basically the same thing as Nate Silver (good message discipline, team O): the electoral result depends on the turnout model.

(5) Barone said that fundamentals matter. He's right. If you forget the polls, who would you day was favored right now?

(6) Incumbents tied generally lose.

217 Right now I give Romney anywhere from 55 to 60% chance of winning this thing. None of the polls are taking into account the effect of the extremely high turnout that's going to come from the Republican side. It's going to meet or exceed turnout in 2010. Evangelicals are also not being accounted for - we're going to see turnout among that group comparable to 1980 and 84.

So, these polls showing a dead-even race are flat-out wrong.

For once I agree with you. There's danger in overconfidence.

Actually, that's the main thing that's puzzled me about those saying I'm a Dem plant. I predict a tight race. How would that discourage Republicans to vote?

And if it did, what would that say about Republicans?

Obviously in a tight race, there's more reason to vote.

233 If being good at writing about something is better than actually getting

Bowl or manage a game in the World Series?


As a writer, I don't look at it like that at all. I like to write because I like to share my experiences with others, hopefully in an entertaining way. Writing is a talent, just like playing the piano or painting or coaching in the Super Bowl. Some people have an aptitude for it and choose to exploit it. Sometimes it's a chore, but sometimes it just flows and your hands can barely keep up with the muse.

Besides, using your sports analogy, you've seen interviews with coaches and players, right? They are some of the most boring people on the planet--they are so focused on their craft that they never learned how to communicate properly (again, sweeping generalization, but just watch any sideline interview to for an example). For those of us that don't have the ability to play or coach on a major-league level--in any endeavor--writing lets us be near it and be a part of it.

I love me some St. Louis Cardinals, and even though I can't hit a 70 mph pitch, much less a 100 mph one, I'd *love* to be able to follow the team around and write about them every day. Unfortunately, somebody else already has that job. We writers need to find our niches.

All I can figger is that Rove wants to help boost the R turnout here to give Bammy a lower margin than he had in 2008 and/or help the local ballot measures.
The most interesting race in LA is between a couple of long time Dem reps who got redistricted into a race for the House: Berman and Sherman. It's turned into a steel cage death match. There was a pushing/attempted headlock by Sherman on Berman at a debate, some pretty nasty mailers, etc. Since I'm registered R, I've got several mailers from both candidates touting themselves as the most conservative of the pair!

The lunch crowd was mainly churchy people, but the supper crowd was mainly people who were disgusted about a private citizen being threatened over what he chose to do with his own money. And I was in CA....a fairly Conservative county, but it ain't near as Conservative as it used to be and it's very gay friendly, so I was shocked so many people came out to support. Hell, there was a male gay couple with a baby in the line ahead of me.

321 It's true that our turnout will meet or exceed the 2010 numbers, but Republicans have to remember that 2010 was NOT a presidential election year. Turnout in general is very low on the off years. This election will bring the democrats back to the polls, and a majority of the folks who voted for Obama the first time around and are now wavering on him... will STILL VOTE FOR HIM AGAIN. The reason being is that no one likes to be wrong, and switching your vote is perceived as admitting to that. So I think Obama's turnout numbers will be lower, but not by much. Will it be ENOUGH? I really don't know.

I am making myself crazy with this election. Seriously wish we could just skip to Wednesday.

For once I agree with you. There's danger in overconfidence.



Actually, that's the main thing that's puzzled me about those saying
I'm a Dem plant. I predict a tight race. How would that discourage
Republicans to vote?



And if it did, what would that say about Republicans?



Obviously in a tight race, there's more reason to vote.

Posted by: Samwise Gamgee the 3rd at November 04, 2012 10:50 PM (SKX2R)

Romney isn't only using the GOTV for himself, but he is also hoping to drag some R's across the line too. Barky was able to drag a few across the line in 08, and they were his most loyal followers in the House. If Mitt can help drag some Senators and Congresscritters across the line, they will line up with him for the next 4 years.

Plus, if Mitt starts sweeping the swing states, some of the west coast dems may start getting discouraged and decide not to vote, allowing the GOP to pick up some seats they may not have thought about picking up, especially if our side keeps getting their votes out. That is why you don't get our just enough votes, you get out every single one of them.

343 The most interesting race in LA is between a couple of long time Dem reps who got redistricted into a race for the House: Berman and Sherman. It's turned into a steel cage death match. There was a pushing/attempted headlock by Sherman on Berman at a debate, some pretty nasty mailers, etc. Since I'm registered R, I've got several mailers from both candidates touting themselves as the most conservative of the pair!

>>>What all of this really means is that we all need to WORK HARDER. It is not over yet!

Book, I totally agree with your comment. Obviously lots of people here think I'm underconfident in outcome of the election, assuming they give me the benefit of the doubt that I want Romney to win.

Well, maybe I am. Maybe he'll win handily.

But your point is that assuming it'll be close (after all, Obama won by 9.5 million votes in '08, and that's a huge swing that Romney requires) is better because overconfidence can breed complacency which can breed disastrous upset.

I could not agree more. My point exactly.

365 The only good thing about season 4 is they finally killed off the most
annoying human being ever placed in a major role on a tv show.

If you mean the sister, alot of commenters at Jump the Shark felt the same way although alot of the hatred seemed to be based on some other show she'd been in that I'd never watched. She didn't bother me in the first two seasons because I'd like to have boned her.

Re. annoying: I did learn to hate Diane in Cheers once it went into heavy syndication and I was watching her five or more times a day! She'd never bothered me for the fresh-run, weekly viewings (although I had a cousin who hated her even that infrequently) but daily viewings just drove me nuts.

How much suck can I get in one paragraph? Anything else?....

446 Rode an incredibly crowded train for almost an hour to get out to this evening's rally. Picked a seat next to a bright and happy lady who gave the secret signals that she plays for my team. Cute, but she's otherwise entangled.

There were four black teens going to West Trenton, the end of the line, who were freaked out by all the noisy white people on their train. I don't think they were Romney supporters, but they were outnumbered 200 to four and didn't seem eager to debate.

Event was short waves of high energy music and speeches, broken up by long boring stretches of waiting for the tardy nominee. Everyone was cold but excited, and eager to greet. In an empty stretch, my new chum glommed on to a pack of Mormon elders who had skipped evening services to see Brother Mitt and Sister Anne, and we had a lovely chat about Jesus's visit to America, the Word of Wisdom, their lovely temples and missionary life.

I was mystified by the whole encounter until I learned that their chapel is mere blocks away from my own neighborhood. (My new acquaintance is quite the conniver.) From there, it was about sixty seconds to the offer of a free ride home, skipping the 1.5-mile walk back to Yardley Station, the cold wait on an open platform, a crowded train and a 20-block trip from Phila 30th Street to my house.

Cars had to be reconfigured to segregate these wanton Gentile women from the missionary lads, so we found ourselves instead traveling unchaperoned with two adorably wholesome teen Mormonettes. Decidedly unwholesome thoughts were flooding the back seat, but Nephi and Moroni gave us sluts gratitude, modesty and restraint. Talk all the way home was Electoral College strategy and how awful the press has been. In our parting prayer, Our Heavenly Father got a double dose of thanks for new friends Jo and Mike, and triple beseeching for the safety of Brother Mitt and Sister Anne.

I've never loved the nonexistent God more than in that moment.

Thank you McCraniac. Your right. Most of the places that Romney has been as of late (Penn., Ohio, Virginia, Florida) have Senate races where most polls indicate that the R is either tied or behind within the MOE.

Years ago I was on a date with a fundamentalist
protestant. When I told him that I'm Catholic he said, "Don't you
Catholics drink and gamble in church?"

I said, "No we drink and play bingo in the church hall. Oh, and that's real wine for communion, not juice."





Posted by: nerdygirl at November 04, 2012 11:13 PM (nPXok)

A friend of mine from college is a Catholic priest, and that is the only reason I joke about them. He pretty much would do anything, except for the sex thing. Today, he pretty much pours more wine at communion than is needed (you probably know why), and managed to get himself transfered back to the area where our college is. He is at the college every Friday and Saturday night having fellowship with the students.
I also grew up Episcopalian, and we drank the real stuff at communion too, but they didn't have bingo because the little old ladies would have had a heart attack having bingo in the church, not because of the gambling, but because those bingo players would be in their church. It was a real warm place to go to church.

The gun gets very good reviews and has some features I really like. Being magazine-fed means reloads are much quicker than a pump if you have extra mags. Plus, someone can be loading mags for you while you shoot. Import restrictions limit the mag capacity to 5 shells, but there are domestic options coming soon (so they say) for 10 and supposedly 20 round mags, plus iIthink I saw somewhere that someone had hooked up a 50 round drum.

Also, this feels like the best gun I've ever held. I have a couple of cases of 00 buck, three more 5-shell mags, and a really cool red dot / light / strobe due for delivery tomorrow or Tuesday.

467 "190 Don't Catholics have bingo every Saturday night?
Posted by: Gozer the Gozarian"

When I was growing up, back before Indian casinos and state lotteries, when gambling outside Nevada was illegal, there was a bingo game that would move from one parish to another. When it was in our parish my grandma took me to it. They played for bushel baskets of groceries.

My aunt and uncle were from a rural parish that had a Parish Festival every year. They had bingo, a beer tent, and those wheels (round and round and round she goes, where she stops, nobody knows). We would go to this every year and it was great fun.This was all illegal.

The county sheriff belonged to the parish. Late in the afternoon, 4 or 5 o'clock a sheriff's deputy cruiser would come and shut it down and everyone would leave. Of course the money would already be gone. Everyone knew what was going on. One time we were leaving just as the cruiser was coming.

491 >>>The thing that gets me is the anchors who act like these polls re scientific, when they don't even bother to look at the internals

That's a fair point. On the other hand, anchors have to handle a wide array of fast-breaking stories. They should probably be more diligent, but can't check out the backstory on everything.

There should be specialist editors and such, though, that catch this, draw it to the anchors' attention, and include better context.

So it's a fair criticism of media operations writ large more than simply of anchors.

Subject: Every person with your name who's voted

Friend --



This is cool:

You can see exactly how many people named the same as you have already voted.




Take a look at that. Then share it with your friends so they can see how
many people with their names have voted, too -- and look up their
polling place.



Bottom line: We need every person with your name -- and everyone else,
too -- to make it out to the polls to support President Obama.

So help get the word out -- and the vote:

Thanks,



Yohannes

I totally believe you, and respect that. It's entirely your choice.

But the numbers I gave were far from unrealistic, and indeed, they are generally the norm from me.

The actual range comes from "The Mystery Method", of which I'm not a big fan. But despite that, I've found his estimate of the length of time to be right on the money.

I usually come across as less than the 7 hours he suggests is the ideal for a solid game.

My last two successful ones were about 2 and 4 hours respectively.

561 "It would be kind of hypocritical for a biblical literalist to NOT drink wine...after all, its what the bible says.
Posted by: Oldcat"

There are Calvinists in Michigan who don't. They were very strict. When I was growing up they couldn't play on Sunday, go to movies, play cards, or dance. Most aren't that strict anymore. They even go to stores on Sunday. I listened to one explain that in Jesus time, what they called wine, was actually juice.

I was at a Catholic Mass and the people in front of me had an elderly lady who wasn't Catholic with them. During communion she said to one of the kids, "That isn't really wine, is it?"

I wouldn't undo my mistake because of the daughters but wish I would have learned the lesson not not married a second crazy bitch. Plan on being single from now on since I'm too stupid to pick a good woman.

I think mainly people can separate their hormones from their emotions and just go for the fun stuff, but I can't. I gotta know at the very least Dude will marry me if I get pregnant. (And since I don't think you "know" me, I am speaking theoretically here; I am 48 ad have been married forever!)

Oh man. I accidently started listening to Alan Colmes radio show online.
Talk about meltdown! Doesn't sound like a chap whose candidate of
choice is looking good. Almost everybody calling in is voting R, and it
just degenerates into a shouting match, resulting in a hang-up. Alan has
called JEF a constitutional scholar, and assures us there was a
military response in Benghazi 26 minutes into the fight, (not sure where
that comes from?) Oh - he wanted to have a noted conservative voice on
to endorse JEF - so he had Eisenhower's granddaughter. This is lol. I'm
actually feeling sorry for the guy.

588 Hey wasn't there a open thread for election music somewhere around here?

Well seeing as how this here is an open thread, this here is my request to reopen the discussion. I finally got the perfect one.

The Battle - from the score for Gladiator. I don't know why I couldnt think of it before now. I frikkin love that movie and that score.

For those of you who aren't freaks for Gladiator, this is the music that is playing at the beginning of the movie when Maximus is demolishing the barbarian horde. See now? You got it.

How freakin perfect is this track for the situation we are in? We are the f-ing troops of Rome and we just need to be reminded of how mighty we are. We are going to kick ass and take barbarian names on election day dammit!

And seriously, take a listen to the whole soundtrack while you are at it. Remember what the movie was about? The Emperor had all the advantages but Maximus came back from supposed death to take him out without any advantages but his own courage and awesomeness. That is the American people folks. They think they got us pinned down. They think they are in control of us. Huh.

599 >>>I think mainly people can separate their hormones from their emotions and just go for the fun stuff, but I can't.

I can't either. That's one of the reasons I put a recent moratorium on sex, after the two women I mentioned above. Definitely sex with false promises and the like is heartrbreaking.

JUST sex is one thing. Being told it's more than sex, when it turns out to be just sex, sucks.

When I started dating many moons ago, I wanted to find a woman, one woman, and get married. To wait for marriage, no less.

I quickly (and repeatedly) discovered that if I did NOT have sex with the woman, some other guy would, and she would quickly marginalize me in favor of him.

I tried to remedy this by being even nicer. This did not work.

Say what you will about my ascerbic personality, there's actual scientific research that shows "disagreeable" men get laid more.

I could explain the evo-psychology theories behind that, but they're unlikely to be accepted here. I'll just say this:

I can get laid. It's trivially easy.

Doesn't mean I've mastered love, but getting women to want sex is not a difficult thing.

Including Republicans, religious women, etc.

I used to think that, but actually asking can work if you do it right. And if you have a comeback for if the answer is no.

Classic setup:

"Do you want to kiss me?"

"No."

"I didn't say you could. You just looked like you had something on your mind."

Of course, the answer is often, "Yes," or, "Maybe," and in both cases, you kiss her.

I've found that going for the deep hug and then giving a little resistance when she starts to pull away works. I don't trap her, but slow her down just enough that you can look her in the eyes when she's only a couple of inches away. If she's interested, she'll want to linger close to you, whereas if she's not you'll be able to tell right away.

But yeah, don't be afraid to just move in for the kiss. Never ask.

He and I became friends. Nice guy. Saw him more recently than her.

She propositioned me while they were married. I turned her down.

After the separated, I moved in with her for a while (a year later). Was moving to town anyway. She was hot, and she offered that as opposed to me getting a place, so sure.

Still dated other girls.

Fell in love with one of them, so called it off with the hot redhead I was living with, although sure we still slept in the same bed sometimes, showered together, and groomed each other (all of which my girlfriend knew about).

But never had sex past that point.

But telling her that you find her...kissable...is a compliment.
Telling her you "want to kiss her", is a strong statement of fact, and not whiney.
It's a show of self confidence.

It puts her on notice...and puts the ball in her court.

(TinyURL or similar can be used to post links here.)

While I'm a MUCH bigger fan of the average Major-to-Colonel (and equivalent navy rank) than General Officer, I saw someone state that Romney had chalked up over 300 flag-rank officer endorsements, and Obama something like 5.

Which IS surprising, actually. Not that Romney got more. I'd expect the Republican to. But that he got SO MUCH more, and Obama so few.

I don't think Obama's that popular among informed military officers.

623Great news about the military guys taking out the ad. At first I wondered why they waited so long as that could have beefed up Romney in Ohio, but it's probably been designed to be late so that the Dems couldn't charge Mitt with being a war-monger. It's obviously supposed to help him with military in VA and hopefully with vets in Ohio.

------------

Which Ad?

I thought that there was going to be one...tonight...during that "Seal Team Six" movie that aired on NatGeo.
So I watched it, just to see the Ad.

Didn't see one.

I don't think the movie did anything good for Barky, though.
It totally destroyed their excuses for 'not sending' anyone to rescue our guys in Benghazi.

I am assuming you mean detachable mag shotguns. Any pump or semi feeds from a magazine, it's usually a tubular magazine underneath the barrel. The only ones that don't use a magazine are the double-barrels or single shot breech-loading shotguns.
And I suspect the answer to be regulations regarding hunting that limit magazines to three shots for shotguns, no sense in putting a 3 shot box magazine in a hunting shotgun...and most of them are primarily hunting shotguns. The Saiga-12 is one of the exceptions.

659 >>>wow, you've just got all the moves, Casanova. You should write your book -- kind of like "The Rules", but for men.

When I was 18, I couldn't get a date to save my life. I moved to a bit city following heartbreak over an unrequited love, and I determined to get a girlfriend.

I started out asking women at school, on the bus, wherever. Got turned down well over 60 times straight. Minimum.

It was terrible. I was terrible at it too, but emotionally it was hellish. Wanted to die most of the time. I never thought a woman would ever like me "that way".

Then, somehow, I got to the point where I realized asking girls out didn't hurt me anymore. They weren't saying yes, but I wasn't afraid of it.

I asked this one girl out at my job, and she said yes. She said she was going to ask ME out. Which shocked me, but there it was.

I then had not one, but two, girls get jealous that I was dating someone, and ask me out or seduce me.

One of those two weirded me out by getting my number from work without my permission and I turned her down. The other one was a friend who was dead hot (the first word I ever said in my mind when I saw her months earlier was, "Wow,") but I never thought would like me that way.

She called me late at night, innocent me, and one thing led to another.

So much for waiting for marriage.

Anyway, I called the girl I was dating, feeling like a total asshole, to tell her what I'd done. Before I could, she broke up with me, because I wasn't culturally aware and didn't even know who her favorite bands were.

I pretended I was disappointed, but in my mind, I was screaming, "Thank you God!"

After that point, I still kept meeting women in person, and I'd meet about 5 or so, and 4 would give me their numbers.

2 later would turn me down saying they had boyfriends when I called, but had given me their numbers because they were swept away by my confidence or charm or whatnot.

Years later, I read books (many) on dating women, and it was like, "Oh right! This IS right."

'Cause I'd figured out lots of that stuff on my own.

Of course, the books helped me get better, and I'd get women in bed quicker, as a rule.

But they also kind of fuck up your head a bit too if you let them.

Women are neither saints nor devils. They're people who smell nicer.

Some are horrible, others wonderful. Most ... "Meh."

At least North American women. European women and even Arab and Persian women are pretty awesome, as long as you don't talk politics or religion in the latter case, where they're crazy.

I've wondered why we don't see more mag. fed shotguns.


There are a few out there. But shotgun rounds are much heavier and bulkier than even 30-06 ammo, so a 20- or 30-round mag would be large. The under-barrel tube magazine works well, is proven, works with both pump and autoloading designs, cannot be lost or misplaced and can be topped-off while not firing. Also, shotgun rounds are rimmed, which is not the best choice for magazines.

If you want to sleep with a new woman a month or more on average, year in year out, decade after decade, mine is great advice.

If you want to get married to your "one", and are wiling to endure the emotional risks that entails for the great reward it offers, you are indeed best off not following my advice.

681 120: I didn't think Axlerod was confident. I thought he looked dog tired and was blustering. The stupidly weighted polls are purposely used by Ax and crew to drive their voters to the polls. People are more likely to vote for the guy they think is going to win, is supposed to win. So, the corrupt pollsters are in league with Ax to create the meme that their guy is up all over the place. It's a brilliant strategy, actually and because the media is in the tank for them and Fox is stupid and never challenges the polls by looking at the internals, they get away with it.

"Evangelicals are also not being accounted for - we're going to see turnout among that group comparable to 1980 and 84."

Well, surely the polls, including Rasmussen must call some of them, wouldn't you think? I am hoping that Ralph Reed has been successful in both registering the 2 million he sought to register and getting them to the polls to vote R/R.

I read an article that interviewed some big wig Baptist. Man, pissed me off big time. He was saying that it does matter that a man who might be President is a Mormon whereas it doesn't matter that a senator, like Harry Reid, is one. He said that a Mormon President would "legitimize" that faith in ways a lesser representative could never do. And yes, he called it a "cult" still. Come on folks, don't you'all fear everyone converting to Mormonism. I think these guys like that are just afraid of the competition from Mormons to convert others. I guess not even Billy Graham's ad helped this guy see the light.
I live in CA. I have known many Mormons--great people. When I read of a preacher, a big wig like that spouting such nonsense, I feel as if they live on another planet. I think he was from VA--whoops.

Not as far as jeans and a blindingly white T-shirt. And I tend to be suspicious of men in overly polished shoes and fancy cars.

Personal tastes, naturally. Most women do like nicely dressed male. I like a man who looks like he is capable of doing something besides worrying about too much his clothes, though.

There's a difference between being overly polished and being polished. Slacks, nice shoes and a jacket give off the signal that the wearer has at least a basic idea of their own self worth.

731 But if you're afraid to ask a woman out, I've been there.

Why not start by just striking up random conversations for a few seconds with whomever?

Couples, men, old women, Starbucks baristas, grocery checkout line clerks, and so on.

And, down the road, if one of these talks goes well (as it will), you can always just say, "Hey, I'm kind of shy about meeting people, but you seem worth talking to a second time. Would you like to text each other?"

It's not the strongest line in the world, but it will work.

Just having a nice jacket over a shirt or a T-shirt can make a big difference.

And polished shoes with lines? This still works. I have all sorts of female friends who tell me they look at a man's shoes.

This is so predictable, I just laugh when they say it.

The jacket is optional. Asking the women out isn't.

Sassy, most women these days text. At least the women in their 20s I generally date. 30s too for that matter, and even 40s.

If a woman wants to talk on the phone, I'm a HUGE fan of this. That was how it was when I started dating, and I rock on the phone.

But text messaging is where it's at these days.

Also, I admitted that was a pretty weak line. As I said, it was advice for a guy who is currently shy with women and thinks women find him repulsive.

My last date, I pushed the woman against a wall in a hallway, in the daytime, and then she came back to my place.

I'm not super shy.

But the point is, it's OK to be shy. You can still get dates. As long as you're confident enough to ASK, you can still get somewhere.

No good. Just got back from the mountains. I ran away from home Saturday morning, turned the phone off and didn't tell the kids where I went. They were just a little bit upset with me, but to hell with them, it's about time for them to move out anyway (Daughter just turned 27 last weekend). Doesn't mean they WILL move out though...

779 Does Samwise sound to anyone else like a dude version of curious/oZfic?Posted by: Palandine

Not so much. Curious would start with a self-absorbed anecdote from the previous day and then end with some question. "Do you think this could be true? What does everyone think?"

Sam is much closer to Jimi Ray; supreme self-regard, unearned condescension, sophistry piled on top of dilettantism, and, of course, the conspicuous contrarianism.

780 >>> "I rock on the phone" - yup, I think that's all we need to know about you. That sums it up nicely.

Sassy, I'm obviously not here to meet women.

As I said above, I even put a recent moratorium on new women.

And my behavior here is hardly calculated to pick up women.

And obviously I'm not claiming all women like me.

But, have I ever turned on a woman or two, or two hundred, or more, on the phone?

Emotionally as well as physically?

It isn't hard to do. Voice tone alone will take you most of the way there, even if you're talking about other things.

796 I am assuming you mean detachable mag shotguns. Any pump or semi feeds from a magazine, it's usually a tubular magazine underneath the barrel. The only ones that don't use a magazine are the double-barrels or single shot breech-loading shotguns.

And I suspect the answer to be regulations regarding hunting that limit magazines to three shots for shotguns, no sense in putting a 3 shot box magazine in a hunting shotgun...and most of them are primarily hunting shotguns. The Saiga-12 is one of the exceptions.

Posted by: GGE of the Moron Horde, NC Chapter at November 05, 2012 12:29 AM (yh0zB)


***************

This is true. With the short barrel, I got mine for defense as opposed to hunting. You are correct on the restricted shell load for hunting. I know you can buy a gizmo that will limit the number of shells in the magazine for hunting for the MKA, and I think I've seen them for the Saiga, as well.

That was a sweet looking gun setup, Sandy.

I went with the red dot/light/strobe combo ( http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/ItemDetail.aspx?sku=9-55710 ) since I have a bad back and two blown disks in my lower right neck and so want to shoot from under my shoulder if possible. Need to get one of those front grips for the gun though.

And ends with,

"...that’s what happened yesterday to Barack Obama in Virginia. Famous liar, womanizer, and accused rapist Bill Clinton kept the audience in their seats, but as Obama was speaking, many people had had enough; they got up and left so they could beat the parking lot traffic.

As Charlie Spiering of the Washington Examiner tweeted:

'Wow. Steady stream of cold people trotting towards the exit in the middle of Obama's speech.'

And even Obama’s hot air wasn’t enough to hold them."

852 >>>Don't really care 'bout his religion, but the way he lives his personal life and the things he's done for people without any expectation of publicity, the money he and his wife donate to charity...Romney is probably one of the most personally decent men who has run for President in my lifetime.

This.

Although, honestly, Reagan stood up to commies in Hollywood, then faced down the Kremlin. HW Bush was a very young pilot in the navy, then helped beat the commies and was a decent President, loving father and husband. W. Bush was all class, I think, at least personally.

So I think Romney's in good company, and I'm very impressed with him (and hell, I forgot McCain -- yeah, he's with the Dems half the time and calling for US forces to be deployed anywhere and everywhere the other half, but he did fight and get tortured on behalf of America, then still devote his life to public service), but he's in good company.

I REALLY dislike Ford for pardoning Nixon, so I won't count him, but otherwise, I guess he was OK.

Oh, Dole also -- he lost, but a decent man. War hero. Etc.

I'm really starting to wonder if I should follow Mom's advice and get a restraining order. I guess the thing that really freaked me out was when I went to bed I found shoe polish on my sheets. Could he really be crawling into my bed while I'm out??? And what kind of maintenance guy shines his shoes and wears a matching belt?? I mean, he's nice and says "Hi" when I pass him in the hall, but wtf is he doing in my apartment all the time?

There are no hoses in that location. It is likely that if this is not a recurring problem that a dish is diverting the spray directly against the door seal. Look at how it is loaded and see if you change the loading it makes the problem go away. The seals degrade over time but you can nurse it along for awhile just paying attention to the ricochet of the water to the door.

866 GGE, if you watch the two episodes of Rei-Rei starring Kaguya. Well you will never have to watch another ecchi tentacle monster anime ever. First episode has a governess who has betwitched her coltish young charge into believing they were meant for each other. She wants the girl's inheritance. And there is the guy, who got transformed in that clip, who loves the girl. And somehow through it all justice is served. Second episode deals with an otaku who gets absorbed by his Bentendo. And only by battling such things as tentacle monsters in a game can Kaguya save the otaku.

Probably a good idea to get him in the habit of doing that anyway... if he ever uses a school or public computer he will want to log out of stuff like that every time.

I'm not sure about google plus because I don't use it (went to sign up at the request of one of my friends and it said it was going to link all of my picasa albums to the account. I didn't want to do that so I decided against it). On facebook I think he would pretty much just have to go through his friends list and try to see who is missing.

"Operative Faith reveals that Kroger will soon join the ranks of Darden Restaurants and slash the hours of its non-exempt (hourly) workers to avoid millions in Obamacare penalties.

To give you a sense of Kroger's size and importance, its sales last year were $90 billion and it employs nearly 350,000 people. Most of its jobs are hourly and the vast majority of workers are neither millionaires or billionaires...

He was my favorite president in my lifetime, at least on his personality, although Reagan was more consequential.

Far from Reagan's defeating the Warsaw Pact just being an accident of history, he went into office with a plan, developed from the 60s onwards, written down largely on 3x5 cue cards, and executed it brilliantly, adjusting to events well.

I think Romney may prove to rival W. for class in my mind, were I to be around long enough to fully appreciate his Presidency (assuming he wins).

If its a few years old, the rubber seal washer on the water hose might just be whupped enough that its seeping (that you can replace yourself). Does it leak constantly or only when running?

If its constant, then its something between the units internal water valve and the water supply. If it leaks only when running, then its something internal on the unit side of its internal valve.

-----------

Yeah, the hoses are the same age as the unit...about 10 yrs.
Had a new water heater put in last year, and it's a good one...I set the temp up higher, to disinfect dishes and dirty towels and such.
The higher temp of the hot water might've aided in causing a hose to leak?

935 And I just looked...it could be the seal that's leaking at that side.
But there isn't any water underneath the washer door itself, it's dry under there...beneath the seal.

Water was seeping out on the floor...from that crack between the unit and the cabinet wall.>>

I based my assessment on the fact connections are at front center of the unit for hot water feed and rear bottom for drain (generally). to get a leak at the side other than on the floor should be a seal issue. Not there so don't know but I also can' hurt so it is what info that's worth the price paid.

946 @926 Tammy, I LOVED that book "Salvation on Sand Mountain." What a fascinating read.

Most exotic thing that's ever happened to me religiously is I was fishing in a trout stream in the middle of Missouri one summer weekend and a vanload of Baptists came by and asked if they could baptize a guy. It was apparently his preference to be baptized in his favorite stream instead of at his church. Really cool--they actually sang "As I Went Down in the River to Pray," like in O Brother Where Art Thou?

My grandfather was a southern Baptist, who eventually converted to my grandmother's Catholicism. The Baptist part of the family is still trying to "save" us, but since it's all done out of love, it's pretty inoffensive stuff.

962 The hose/washer is probably whupped. If you can pull it out a few feet and still operate it the leak may be more visible.

Take a look under the sink and make sure the receptacle its plugged into isn't getting wet either. In my development almost every one of those dishwasher/disposal receptacles has caught fire and torched up at some point due to shoddy "backstabbed" installation, and water under the sink.

It looks like an ordinary duplex receptacle, but internally the halves are usually split with one half on one circuit, the other half on another and 240v between them -- IOW, there's 240V with in the wall box, 120V of that to one half, 120V to the other. 240V is enough for a self sustain electrical arc

I would whole heatedly agree to removal of errant or over abundance of follicular growth by my partner.

Grew up Episcopalian - one of my cousins was dating a Baptist girl, who was always amazed at all the standing up - sitting down - kneeling going on at church. Then another cousin married a Catholic girl, which really freaked my aunt out (old South Episcopalians didn't care for the Catholics very much...). He had to agree to raise the kids Catholic, but then the kids all went to a private Baptist school - but I think they are still Catholic (or at the least confused...).

There's a yearning in this country, the deepest of yearnings inthe hearts ourpeople. It's not for a man or for a woman, but for an idea. We yearn for one who is willing to protect it, to sanctify it with respect, the respect given it by our forefathers,by our mothers and fathers and grandmothers and grandfathers who sacrificed to make something of this land, this people.
As Mitt prays for worthiness before he goes before the people of this land, let us remember it's the idea we wish him to embody, to protect.

If going past that made them feel sexy so I might get it more often the extra work was not ever disparaged but also was never necessary.

When I was younger, I noticed I did better with women when I hadn't shaved for a few days and didn't know why. Also, when I didn't dress up.

I often wore ties.

But when I just dressed nice, not business-like, and had stubble, had way better results.

Years later, of course, I've seen studies showing women prefer stubble.

But of course, I've never gotten a woman in my life, so I wouldn't really know ....

1006 888

858...There are no hoses in that location. It is likely that if this
is not a recurring problem that a dish is diverting the spray directly
against the door seal. Look at how it is loaded and see if you change
the loading it makes the problem go away. The seals degrade over time
but you can nurse it along for awhile just paying attention to the
ricochet of the water to the door.

----------

Yeah, the crack between the unit and the cabinet wall...are where the hot water hose and the drain hose go through...to connect to the hot water line and the sink drain.
There are holes in that cabinet wall, for those two hoses to go to the dishwasher.

And I just looked...it could be the seal that's leaking at that side.
But there isn't any water underneath the washer door itself, it's dry under there...beneath the seal.

Water was seeping out on the floor...from that crack between the unit and the cabinet wall.

Posted by: wheatie at November 05, 2012 01:31 AM (ICEh3)


If this is the side of the dishwasher next to the kitchen sink, immediately take all the stuff out from under the sink and make sure that it's dry in the undersink cabinet. If your dishwasher is making that area wet, it will rot the cabinets in a not-very-fun way. Otherwise, you have more time.

Did that. It's dry under the sink...and dry where the hoses are coming in from the dishwasher.

It's one of those kind of installations, where the drain hose connects to the bottom of the disposal unit, beneath the sink.

Having grown up in TX with none of that nonsense, I was totally confused - and then there was the state income tax in VA. Unwinding all that after I moved to TN was a mess, too - but at least I got a partial rebate (or something like that - it was over thirty years ago, so my memory is just a wee bit foggy...).

1045 Yes GGE, isn't that a quaint tax? It goes back a long time, too. There was a southern tradition, before modern progressivism, that many social ills arose from massive inherited wealth. Playboys, plungers, ne'er-do-wells and the like. Those taxes were among several strategies for avoiding massive wealth accumulation. The applicability to moving things derives from the nasty tax on ... slaves.

Farther north, you find a similarly bizarre tax on business inventories, apparently based on the idea that robber barons were clubbing society around with their massive piles of iron ore and plumbing valves.

1050 Mississippi has an ad valoreum[sp] tax that varies from county to county on car tags. City of Jackson resides mostly in Hinds County and if you have a nice vehicle your tag could cost $1,200/year. Move to Rankin County which abuts Jackson/Hinds and same vehicle tag might cost $400/year.

Did I mention Hinds and Jackson tend to elect tax crazy Democrats? And this car tag is supposed to help with roads. And Jackson/Hinds has the worst roads.

Well the water seeping out has stopped now.
Used three towels...bathsize ones...one at first to sopup the water, then one after another, laid down to absorb what was still seeping out.
So it wasn't like it was a gusher.
A slow seep.

It has to be the hoses, I think...because it stopped after the dishwasher stopped running.

1062 Wheatie:

I agree with Purp that you need to see if you can ease the unit out.

Unless this was installed at the same time as the cabinets (and even then good practice is to leave lots of slack in power/water/drain lines) you should have enough slack to pull the unit carefully out.

this will allow you to get a look at the connections.

At worst you might have to undo connections and add temporary extensions to do so. (if you do, and you had this installed, I'd have some words for the installer. This is not good practice)

Pull the unit out. Install extensions if necessary and put in a load and run.

You should then be able to tell WHERE the leak is originating.

Over half the work in find the solution to the problem is knowing WHAT and WHERE the problem lies.

This is what a good repairman would do if you called one in. (unless their experience with this brand has led them to see this before and know exactly why it's happening.

If you do put in extensions make sure your connections are tight and the power is grounded and has adequate size wire.

This is easy to do and may save you a ton of money. You may even be able to find out what's going on just by moving it out as far as you can so you can see what's happening.

Posted by: Jcw46 at November 05, 2012 02:31 AM (SP4jC)

1063 wheatie>>

If the water leak is only when the machine is running you can eliminate the connection to the hot water line. Your drain line should be at the back so you should only see it leak out under the machine. If the machine is 10 years old the best solution is likely just buying a new one and saving the $100 plumbers call to tell you that's the solution.

1065 i have pretty high hopes for the hobbit flicks.

i was sceptical about the LOTR movies until i saw fellowship in the theatres. talk about epic!

the hobbit flicks are supposed to weave some of the mythology of tolkien's less-popular works into the narrative. not sure how..i embargo any stories that get heavy on specifics...but i think seeing committed to screen more of the incredible world of tolkien's imagination, which is so much more than just the third-age middle earth of lotr, could end up being just as epic, if not more so, than the lotr treatment!

i don't usually like when my preconceived visions of how good books' characters and locales look are usurped by some director's rather stock imagination...but peter jackson certainly did lotr right, so i'm open to seeing how he does middle earth in the second age now, too!

If this is the side of the dishwasher next to the kitchen sink,
immediately take all the stuff out from under the sink and make sure
that it's dry in the undersink cabinet. If your dishwasher is making
that area wet, it will rot the cabinets in a not-very-fun way.
Otherwise, you have more time.

Yeah it is, cthulhu...that's why I looked under there first.
It's dry under there.
Water
seems to be coming from outside the cabinet under the sink...from the
crack between the side wall ofthat cabinet and the side of the
dishwasher.


Posted by: wheatie at November 05, 2012 02:16 AM (ICEh3)


OK, so you might have some time to play with it. I would guess the hose connections at the dishwasher end -- which are pretty easy to redo.

I personally like to pull all the dishwasher hoses and its power cord into the undersink cabinet to start. There's usually about 4' of it stashed behind the dishwasher. That'll tell you if pulling the dishwasher out is going to be really bad. If you've got plenty to slide the dishwasher forward, then open the door and unscrew the screws holding it into the cabinet (especially the upward-facing one right in front of the door opening). Slowly pull forward as the hoses and cable slide back out of the undersink cabinet.....

If you're really, really, really lucky, you can then run a short cycle and just watch where it leaks.

Wheatie was sayng that it seemed to come from further back, and mentioned a couple of towels worth of water, but it only happened when it was running -- that sort of says drain hose.

well the fastest thing you can do is take the lower front off the dishwasher. usually about 4 screws. that will allow you to see under the dishwasher. You will be able to see the hose and water line connections on the dishwasher end. The thing to check for is those lines leaking, OR the tank seal where the motor attaches to the tank, OR for any cracks in the tank around the motor, both which I have seen happen on older plastic tank washers. If you take the lower front off and run the dishwasher you should be able to see any leaks with a flashlight.

The other thing is to make sure the float isn't stuck. That part is inside the dishwasher when you open the door. usually on the floor of the tank, and looks like a little R2D2 thingy. It moves up and down. Make sure it moves freely, because if it gets stuck near the bottom of its travel the water level goes higher and can leak out of the door seal. Sometimes they can get sticky.

1108 The black hose (if large) is probably the drain. If there's a solid copper line, that should be your water.

Have you run it while watching underneath? That may tell you enough.

If you have solid copper lines you should get that replaced with a braided line anyway. Ditto all the other lines.

By making all the connections after in place, they won't have a lot of give and drain/water/power lines can chafe or loosen causing leakage at connections or holes and should be replaced.

As to the Hobbit.

I was soooo happy to see that Peter Jackson stuck very close to the book for the movie. This is rare. It's why the movie was a success instead teh suck IMO.

If they start f'n with the Hobbit they will lose fans but they probably don't care as where can they go with the franchise from here? Most folks don't know about, don't care about and won't go to see any of the other works by Tolkien.

So as long as they can suck folks in to 1-3 movies, they're golden.

Cynical but then that's Hollywood.

The Hobbit book itself could be a great movie, but if they choose accurate, relevant background info PLUS the material in The Hobbit, that could be great too.

Wow. You guys are great.
This is why I love the Horde!

Okay...so I can get real intimate with the thing, and wriggle it out from it's cubby.
Use tools and shit too.
Possibly making it worse, and evenpull a muscle inmy back again.

Or I can keep stuffing towels up underneath it whenever I run a load of dishes...until the hubby says:
"Honey, why are stuffing towels under the dishwasher?"

At which point, I will pass on all this extremely valuable information on how 'he' can fix it.
And he willsay..."Damn, sounds like we should get a new dishwasher".

Thank Godthis race is about over, and Romney/Ryan doesn't need anymore money.

I think it was a stroke of genius to "go overbudget" on the first film and do all 3 at the same time. Didn't give the studios a chance to fuck with it and didn't give them a chance to cancel the sequels.

mentioned a couple of towels worth of water, but it only happened when
it was running -- that sort of says drain hose. Usual point of failure
is where it attaches to the unit, 'cause they use cheezy clamps, but
there is an alternative explanation -- clogged internal air gap.>>

1120 Romney 49% Obama 49% in the CNN poll with a D+11 sample. I did the math to fix CNN's poll to how it should really reflect. The likelihood of a D+11 turnout or even D+1 is impossible today. Given the result of the 2010 or the 2004 elections, the resulting sample is more like a D-38, R-40, I-22 sample (2004 data). So I dumped it in Excel and the result using CNN's data is actually more along the lines of 53.82% Romney-Ryan vs 44.4% Obama-Biden with 1.78% Undecided. That's how bad Obama is doing this election. Why? Republican turnout in 2008 was at an all-time low hence which is what these pollsters are basing their data on. The last election where both parties were almost equally motivated was the Bush-Kerry elections which is what these pollsters should be basing their data on, not the last election based on Republican all-time low turnouts. One thing's for sure, Republicans are by far definitely more motivated and enthusiastic about voting in this election due to the destruction of this country by the Obama Administration.

I believe your analysis is correct. '06 and '08 were wake-up calls to the GOP, a reminder that if we wanted politicians to spend money like a bunch of jackasses we'd just let the jackasses do it for a while. Hopefully they got the message, they're certainly talking a better show. I think this election is going to go more along the lines of 2010.

Ask your friends. Ask a repairman if you know one. Ask an appliance parts man if you know one. (they know ALL the dirty little secrets.)

Buy one that fits, that's cheap and can be self installed. Invest in good hoses/connections and that can allow easing the unit out for inspection.

Get one that installation is free. (if a reputable company with guarantee)

What a great country? There's Afghans that wonder each night if the goat will survive overnight so they can have some milk in the morning. Or that some Taliban doesn't bring down some Hellfire on the village. (of course their belief in a death cult is part of their problem. Still)

If you are mechanical enough to find the faulty part and replace it this is good advice. If not most appliances are disposable. The cost of a service call (assuming you don't pay for an insurance plan) will be close to half the cost of a new appliance. So Just coughing p for a new one is generally the most cost effective option. Installation is often free or at least subsidized with a new one and a service call is like a home visit from a Doc in price.

1154 I would just take the lower toe kick panel off the dishwasher and look under it with a flashlight while its running, you can see everything that way without having to move the dishwasher. Like I said also, check the float, if its stuck down the water level will get too high and leak out the door seal. Its either going to be something stupid like the connections or the float, or something a little more serious like the motor seal, or a cracked tank by the motor.

I used to see this shit all the time when I was doing kitchen remodeling. real easy to diagnose if you know where to look.

Why do i know this? because of all the cheap bastards that insisted on using old dishwashers in new kitchens and would call you 2 months later to find out why their old dishwasher in their new kitchen wasn't acting...um..new. lol

If they don't manage some degree of drawback from this fiscal and foreign policy cliff, I will work night and day to see a 3rd party developed.

I personally think a 3rd party is a suicide pact but if the parties that exist can't/won't face reality and get the job done, then they have to go. (someone said that recently)

The only response in that case is for them to find themselves marginalized and in time ignored.

McConnell was a total fucking failure and disaster. It doesn't matter whether anything could be considered bipartisan (that had little to do with Bitch McConnell, anyway). Bitch cut some of the worst "deals" in history with people who are of such bad faith that no one with a brain would have even spoken to them. He allowed midnight votes to push off a debt-ceiling fight that he turned into a fiasco and a disaster. He stopped nothing. He fought against nothing. He just sat there like a lump and did nothing. He watched two of the most pathetic SCOTUS nominees in history sail right through, with the great distinction of having one be put through on the idea that "empathy" is a legitimate main criterion for a judge or judicial decision, in direct conflict with over 3 millenia of tradition and the very foundation of Western jurisprudence. He let another lie her way through confirmation without so much as a peep. He let Barky and Hairy Reed make a mockery of the Constitution and determinations of when the Senate was in session.

I could go on for days. Bitch McConnell was a total, unmitigated disaster. His only saving grace is that the Weeper of the House was a hundred times worse and that Hairy Reed and Skeletor Pelousi were orders of magnitude worse than the Crybaby. And Barky was even on a whole other level of America-hating douchebaggery (and treason and assorted crimes) than them.

So ... grading on this amazingly treasonous and retarded Washington curve, Bitch McConnell was the least worst.

I'm with you but for now him and boner are all we've got. so we'll have to somehow make them realize the error of their ways.

One way will be Romney getting elected. This SHOULD make them rethink their actions and attitude.

Of course Republicans/politicians tend to see results from a different viewpoint so they might not take the hint.

this is why, Sarah Palin, the moron horde et al will have to work even harder after the election to make sure that they realize they are on borrowed time and don't slip back into their old ways.

It needs to be brought home to them that we will not put up with anymore compromise on the security, liberty and financial stability of the US for any reasons of go along to get along or reaching across the aisle.

Democrats are the enemy along with the Mass Media.

Until they start acting like this is a war, they need to be reminded daily that they will not be allowed to kick the can down the road.

Yeah, I think this dishwasher was around $375....installation and delivery was another $25.
And calling a repairman, if I can even find one that could fix this model...could easily run $200 to $300.

Can't complain, I guess....this one has worked good for a little over 10 years.

Seriously, you should try looking at fixing it yourself. If it's a $3 hose clamp, why buy a whole new dishwasher.....and if you screw it up real bad, you'll know that you'll have pushed it past the multi-$100 fix threshold.

OMG, this is hilarious, you have to read this!

Seriously, this is funny. It's Terry McMillian who I guess wrote "Waiting to Exhale" and she goes on this epic rant on Daily Beast.

Talks about all this shit about the Election and Romney and Republicans. But she's so amped it's like she's just recording it into a microphone..then having some underling or computer type or print it out or whatever the fuck.

She talks about how she hasn't been as upset as she has by Romney since her divorce, which made me LOL.

I hope he takes her for all her "Waiting to Exhale" money. Equal rights mean alimony, babygirl! (according to wikipedia he's like Jamaican and 30 years younger...LOL...and laughing even louder).

Then she thanks the Editorial Board of the NY Times for "understanding who Mitt Romney is, and what this President has gone through" or some shit.

Then she tells Romney and Republicans, after accusing us of being Uncle Toms, racists, thieves, war-mongers, murderers (literally) that we should "get over ourselves". Yeah, great thing to tell people you've accused of murder, sweetmeat.

No wonder the Justice System is fucked up (and that your husband divorced you, fat wench).

Can you imagine the ranting if Romney pulls this out?

Dear Lord I know we don't deserve it but give us this one last chance. These people are crazy. They don't want to destroy the US, but they will, in their ignorance. Just listen to their words. And have mercy even if we're too smart for our own good. Who but us if not us? Who will save your creation?

Amen.

1223 I haven't watched the ad . That would do injury to my blood pressure. But I've heard this crap enough to make a good guess at what he's talking about. He's talking about "caring for the poor".

Problem is, "caring for the poor" is never described in the Scriptures as government confiscation of wages and property. It is never described as redistribution of wealth by government means. It is never described as anything other than a personal act done out of love for God and love for your neighbor.

I would postulate that the handing over of one's personal responsibility to care for the poor and the sick over to a government bureaucrat is the exact opposite of what Jesus commands. Jesus never once mention government agencies when referring to Christian compassion.

Nevermind the fact that the government doesn't do a very good job at it. In fact I could make a good argument for the case that government creates more poverty than it alleviates.

There is generally 1 place to early vote in town and many places to vote on election day. That is why the lines are shorter. Idiots.
