6 Freaking gun control ass mulches. Most of the comments o n Facebook are pro-gun, very logical and straight forward. The arguments against guns are all emotion driven and the people making them can not be reasoned with because it's all based on fear. How do you reasure people like that?

7 Yesterday, at work, my wife needed to call a law office and give them a heads up on an upcoming trial. When the other office answered the phone, my wife said. "Just wanted to give you an early "FU", meaning "FYI". I'll bet that other office is still laughing.

8 My dad is one of the folks against guns because of fear. When school shootings happen, all he can think of is that his daughter (my sister, a teacher) is in danger. I understand, I really do, doesn't help that she teaches middle school in a not so great part of town. But I know the facts, and i know less guns = more crime. (great book, btw) can't convince my pop of that, though.

11 Morning Morons. Been up since 4 AM when my home office UPS decided to pretend the power went out and start screaming for attention.

It never fails. Either my phone "boinks" with spam texts at 4AM, or something else electronic in the house says, "Our turn to wake up the master, for no reason at all."

13 Speaking of firearms, I'm taking a concealed-carry class all day today in NC. Was reading about where you CAN'T take a gun here. It appears that any of the places where it would have been great for someone to be carrying (i.e. theater, school) are off-limits.

14 Good morning, everyone!

Does anyone have the scoop on what's going on in Algeria? Now this morning I heard from ABC radio that the Algerian Special Forces had gone in and rescued a bunch but that 2 Americans were still being held. Two days ago NPR had a story where the US Military had flown them out to somewhere in Europe.

Our press seems to be concerned with that football player and Inaugural preparations. The fact that American citizens are being held hostage seems of no concern.

And by the way, one story said that (ta-da) the terrorists wanted the Blind Sheikh released. (This goes back to the old theory of the botched fake kidnapping in Benghazi.)

So, were people rescued? If so, where are they? Are they with the other people rescued from Benghazi, who have yet to be seen or interviewed? Do we have some massive site where we keep all rescued hostages so that they cannot complain about TFG not helping them, or what?

17 Oh I'm wide awake and thinking about kicking CAC right in the bunghole so hard his pot brownies will be looking for a different exit point. Due to his recent insane THC inspired blatherings, he's got me taking an online physics course.

Now waaaay back in junior college, I had a choice between chemistry and physics. I took the only sane route and left physics in the dust.

Now he's screwing the whole thing up, 40 years after I had it all settled in my mind.

20 People who make emotionally driven arguments are liberals, and those who make logical driven arguments are conservatives. That's why most of the country identifies as conservatives. The populace gets that. Especially the older voters, 30 and up. They just don't always vote on the side of logic and reason because emotions are so persuasive.

37 Isn't gluten-free food stuff like meat and cheese?

It's everything except foods containing wheat, barley, and rye. Wheat gluten ends up in a lot of sauces and dressings (and cat food) because it's a cheap thickener.

My sister went "G-Free" after seeing something on Oprah or Oz or whatever (she's been a hypochondriac pain in the ass her whole life). So we had chicken and rice instead of chicken and noodles on Christmas Eve, and there was a box of date paste and rice flour "cookies" next to the goodies, and the Chex Mix did not include Wheat Chex. This was all reasonable to me, and she still buys regular bread for her children so she's not going to be a public pain in the ass, but I'm pretty sure the next step for the "movement" is banning wheat in schools like they banned peanuts.

72 I've been done with The History Channel for a long time, but flipping through yesterday I stopped on there to watch some documentary. Didn't catch too much but Andrew Jackson and the United States Bank caught my eye. Then they made some comment about presidents who inherit economic messes from the predecessors. I thought to myself "Oh shit, here it comes" and was then treated to GHWB as an example of inheriting a mess from Reagan. I didn't expect that particular line of bullshit.



I long for the days when my chief complaint was that they only covered Hitler/WWII. Now, in addition to Ancient Aliens (because humans just weren't fucking smart enough 3500 years ago to build basic fucking pyramids or something) I have to see Reagan Derangement Syndrome.

94 I looked at the meal plan at my new school. $1380 per year is the cheapest, for five meals a week.

Five meals per week times 28 weeks roughly; 140 meals

112 As to the gluten-free stuff, I dated a woman with Celiac and Crohn's diseases.

She found out she has these two diseases because her intestines collapsed on themselves and nearly killed her (24 hours from going septic).

The thing is, if we wanted to go out for dinner (which we did often), we went to places with good gf menus like PF Changs. You don't demand someone cater to you, you find a place that already does and give them your money.

144 Comments about the folks sitting on the porch brought back a memory. I was working in Nebraska some years ago, and on Saturdays I would go out and bust a few pheasants. The farm where I had permission was a small family owned operation, with really nice people. I would always give them a couple birds, and after finding out dad liked a nip now and then, a bottle of Jim beam. One Saturday, the car conked out as I was leaving, and we just couldn't get it running. Time to call a wrecker and come inside. I was just in time for their early winter Saturday tradition. Dad was real happy that the Texaco Metropolitan Opera was featuring La Traviata. They loved it , listening to a top end Blaupunkt their kid sent home when stationed in Germany. I always think about this when some Manhattan turd expounds on the lack of culture in flyover country.

Posted by: Mama AJ at January 19, 2013 09:20 AM (SUKHu)

209 Since we moved back to the country almost  20 years ago, we've had dozens of cats. Started off after the first year when two barn cats gave us seven kittens. We've had many just wander up (we live where folks in town think is far enough out to dump unwanted pets). We stopped to pick up two really tiny abandoned kittens by the side of the back road to town; they're still with us. So you're how we are. Every pet is a big part of our family; every cat had a story. This Caturday, the most unusual story of how we got a cat.

We were  on our way back from Chicago with our twin boys. Stopped at the rest area near Pontiac. When I came out of the men's room, I saw a big yellow long-tailed tom winding around my sons' legs and the boys begging to take him home with us.

First, this is no kitten; full-grown, even already snipped. I said, no, this belongs to somebody, maybe a nearby farm. I didn't really think so, but, second but not least, we had about 700 miles to go and riding with a stange cat that far did not seem to me to be the greatest of ideas, right? Much 'discussion' in which Dad was unyielding. When I said my final absolute no, it was as if the cat understood, and he began to walk away from us. He walked toward the parking lot, and my thought was, oh great, now I get to see him run down. He walked directly to an empty angled parking space, and sat down, looking at me. It looked to me like he was sitting on something, so, curiosity aroused, I walked over to see what. Two pieces of paper, a fiver, and a ten spot.

That's why we call him Buck.

When Fate is smacking you in the face, it's a good idea to pay attention. I'm pretty dull; takes a lot of smacking, but eventually I get the hint.

We stayed that night at the old HJ at Rolla, leaving the cat, with much trepidation, in the car. (He threw up on the ride. But he throws up on every ride to the vet, still.) In the morning, we opened the car door and he bolted out. Like a scene from a Carl Barks comic, the cat goes racing up the length of the parking lot, chased by our twins, chased by me, Mrs running behind. We got to the far edge of the parking lot. The cat races up the hill and under the barbed wire, where he stops, looking back from the edge of the woods. I command the boys to stop there, and walk back to me. That was a scary moment. If the cat ran off, we were responsible for transplanting him from maybe where he was somebody's pet to true abandonment. I told the boys, either he will come back or he won't, but we had to lead him. We all began walking back to the car, and he came right up alongside of us. He was ours! (Not to sound all animal-rightish, but really, we are each other's.)


Some cats wander and sometimes don't come back. Buck is never out of sight of the house. We've nursed him through  a urinary tract infection that nearly killed him, and two bad instances of apparent brown recluse bites. He's one tough long-tailed Illinois tomcat. Loud, too, as he reminded me at 5:30 this morning; all orange cats seem to be. Buck's getting old, now, but he figured out how to get that way. Truly brilliant, and the only cat I ever knew to help pay his way.

They're telling me I'm late with the grub. Good morning!

Re: College Mealplans
I got a doozy for your. Right before I graduated my school started requiring commuters to buy a meal plan. (Specificaly a $250/semester plan that came with 200 "flex points" which literally spent point for dollar in the various places around campus.)

Now consider this for a moment. I was not barred from spending money on campus before (every place took cash, even the buffet cafeterias). And I probably did spend that much on shit like coffee and lunch with my girlfriend but being forced to bascially pay $50 to eat on campus was a bit strange.
I fought the this tooth and nail and was faced with the following arguments from students: "Commuters don't pay there fair share of over head to run the resturants!" Really fucktard? How's that work, the "resturant" downstairs is a Subway (actual franchised subway), which charges more for a sandwhich than the subway 2 miles down the road but also doesn't pay rent. So how can they not make money?
From the school (and parroted by the students): "The company that caters for us plans to make it's money on unused meals each week. When a commuter joins a resident student and eats in the dining hall on the resident's meals, the catering company loses money, so commuters need to be forced to pay for this." (Student's picked this up as "commuters steal from residents."
Now consider that for a sec, the company's business model is effectively to saddle students with things they won't use and collect the difference. When students figure out how to be more efficient (and fully utilize what they're paying for.) that's theft. I wrote a student rep and told him "that's akin to saying if I bought 10 apples from the store, but realized I can eat them all and gave 5 to you, you just stole from the store, because the store's business model was bad."
They were convinced it was "Fairness" and went with it.

I suspect that they have the same "overhead" as the folks that ran the diner at our work place. True they got the cafeteria rent free. They also got all utilities free.


But the company raked off 15% from the top, which they had to make up for.

It's also tribalism. When I went to school, back before dinosaurs roamed the plains, there was always an "us" vs. "them" dynamic going on with the residents clearly feeling superior to the commuters because....well, for no logical reason actually.

260 I am the groom's father, so I am off most of the hook here. Now the brides dad is totally fucked.

My friend tried to get his two daughters who were married a year a part to settle for a nice expensive dinner with close family and a few friends. Plus 5000 dollars to start off with.
They and his wife said no way. Off to the races they went. Including all of the showers, pre wedding, post wedding crap.

Wait until you see the price tag for the rehearsal dinner. That one is on you....if you're going "traditional" that is.

263 I have multiple kids in college. None live on campus and none have meal plans. The tuition and book racket is bad enough but the housing scam of $8k per year is a ripoff. Plus the fact that they regulate everything.

Oh, I know about the rehearsal dinner. Wife got out Emily Post and went over everything we are on the hook for.

A friend of mine, god bless him, has two smoking hot daughters, each got married a year apart.

270 I must share this with you, as the elite in this country would say. I just saw a Nicorette commercial, the one with the very little people appearing as a band on the young lady's car console. I started thinking, as a 60 plus former serving Marine, I'd like to have a bunch of those little clowns bouncing around my digs. You see, I have a real high quality Beeman air pistol.....

@MamaAJ,

Poor phrasing. If my Girlfriend has 10 meals/week, and wants to spend one of those on me to have me eat dinner with her, why shouldn't that be allowed? She still has 10 meals (and after this she'd have 8 left).
How is that any different than if she went 10 seperate times herself? Of if we both ran out and got 5 meal/week plans.
@Vic,
I didn't really care about the higher prices, but mandating people do anything is usually the sign of a bad business model. (And yeah, I think the school was taking a mandatory 10% but that's just a perverse incentive for them to force more people to buy things.)

275 We had to swipe our ID cards to get a meal, so that was not possible for us.

I'm just surprised that if they are counting on unused meals, they don't ensure unused meals!

Fixing that might have been better than charging other people, but if they could figure that out, they'd be in private industry, wouldn't they?

We swipped our ID too, they'd just swipe it twice if you wanted to feed two people.

It made sense to me personally. Kinda like buying in bulk, I can save money if we go in on 10lbs of potatoes together and each take 5 (assuming we can't use 10 ourselves.) No one accuses you of stealing from the store. After all you paid for it, you own it, it should be your's to dispense of how you want.
There were several kids in college who got big meal plans and helped out those who couldn't afford more than the lowest mealplan in this way. In the case of my girlfriend/now wife we worked out a deal, if we ate on campus she'd pay, off campus I picked up all the tabs. It worked out well for a while, until she didn't bother to tell me that she was running low on on campus cash. We only set this up because she said she had too much, and it didn't make much sense for me to pay and her money to go to waste. At some point she started spending more of her own money, and never bothered to tell me to buy my own damn coffee. FWIW, when she ran out of on campus cash, I just started picking up the tab for everything (lest you think I'm some sort of asshole. Like I said, every place on campus took cash or Credit card anyway.)

Okay, that just cracks me up after you said they were counting on having unused meals.

Later, I gotta go pretend to be interested in Titanic crap.

278 Some folk have gluten intolerance, like apparently the Mrs.

Tyrants (letting no "crisis" go to waste) decide we need moar gummint.

Free people instead start selling great-tasting gf baked goods and selling them to not gf people. Some great moments, though, like the mother of the teen with severe gi, buying one of our pizzas, saying when her son was first diagnosed, she would've paid $100 for a pizza. Think we were undercharging.

The naturopath says she's not gluten intol anymore, but we'll keep enjoying great alternatives because now, most wheat products taste like paste to me. What? I only tried it once and that was kindergarten...

279 Oh, Ripper Street starts tonight on BBC America. I've seen the first three, and it's pretty engrossing. Matthew Macfadyen (he was in Spooks/MI5, and played Darcy in the 2005 Pride and Prejudice) plays a detective battling the tide in the slum that was Whitechapel. Saucy Jack has retired, but sex murders, whoring and general degeneracy continue. A dissolute American doctor, a brutish enforcer constable and a whorehouse madam guide him in his swim through the sewer.

Moderate nudity, bizarre sex and explicit gore in the versions I saw; they may be toned down for a basic cable audience. Basically, Special Victims Unit time-traveled to Victorian days, without the political correctness.

It'll tide me over until Doctor Who returns.

A federal grand jury on Friday indicted former Mayor Ray Nagin with 21 counts of corruption, alleging that while in office, Nagin took cash bribes and gifts from three city contractors and used his power as mayor to leverage a granite installation contract from Home Depot as the retailer was building a store in Central City. Despite New Orleans' reputation for political shenanigans, Nagin is the first mayor in the city's history to be indicted by a grand jury on corruption charges.

Bush did it!

I'm sure many umps did not find old Earl funny or entertaining. But even for non-Orioles fans it was always a treat to see Weaver come charging out of the dug-out like a pint-sized bull running at a red cape. "Gee, I wonder if Earl's gonna get ejected from the game today?"

282 May I give a 'shout out' to my hometown online Conservative paper by linking to this story? The county seat of Beaufort Co is Washington, better known as Little Washington in those parts. The County Commissioners have passed a "Gun Law Nullification Resolution." Wonder if the other 99 counties in NC will follow suit?
