1 Good Morning Morons. Today is Sunday, January 27, 2013. On this day in 1880 Thomas Edison was granted a patent for the light bulb that someone else invented. But that’s OK, we can’t use it anymore anyway. These new CFLs will save you a nickel every year.

She was only there to advance the administrations talking point on Benghazi of <b>we never ever want this thing to happen again.</b><p>
Once she said that and repeated it ad nauseum and got her dem lackeys to repeat it as well what the heck do you want her to do?WTH!
She isn't going to answer why Stevens got no security,why they didn't rescue him or why Woods and Smith and Doherty who all thought help was coming but it never did died. Or, why the terrorists took Stevens raped him and killed him just like they do to any gay infidel.
She was only there to tell why it won't happen again.
And, don't ask any embarrassing questions about how Stevens funneled arms all over the mid-east! That's not a talking point. She was there to kiss up to all her dem supporters for 2016.
What is the problem?

My old church did that too. Tried to attract the local spanish speakers. Failed miserably, plus a lot of the old timers that were the money people for that church left or stopped donating.

56 Hey, ‘rons and ‘ronettes. Had to go in to prep for a Monday meeting, so I’m just popping in to say hello. Ten bucks says the only “shooting” TFG has ever done in his life is a needle in his skinny arm.


Since I’m feeling a little down today (you would too, if you were in the middle of this damn cold spell), here’s a downer little story about the end of MGM:


In 1969, the studio (which had been tottering for years) was bought by hotel financier Kirk Kirkorian, who appointed TV executive James Aubrey to run the studio. Almost Aubrey’s first words to the press were, “I don’t want to hear any more bullshit about the old MGM. The old MGM is gone.”


And it really was. He shifted the company’s headquarters from NYC to California, which saved $7.5 million in payroll, but then went on a slashing spree, closing down MGM’s English studio as well as the Paris office and theater chains in South Africa, India and Australia. He closed down the Camera Department (selling it off to Panavision). He leased out the studio’s Stock Footage library and decimated the library of the Music Department.


Then, in December of 1969, a “studio oficer,” as remembered by the writer Peter Bart, indulged in the sheer idiocy of insisting he take Aubrey and several of Kirkorian’s people on a tour of the lot. Presumably, the officer wanted to impress on his new boss the priceless legacy he now controlled; instead, it had the opposite effect. While on the backlot, somebody in the party looked around disgustedly and sneered, “How often is this stuff used? It’s just lying around all over the place.”


In December of 1969, Aubrey announced he would be selling off all but 20 acres of the of the studio’s real estate. In 1970, he made a deal with the David Weisz auction house. For the ridiculous sum of $1.5 million, they were given their pick of MGM props and costumes to sell off to the highest bidder. As it turned out, Weisz netted between $8 to 10 million for the auction, while an embarrassed Aubrey had to be content with the meager $1.5 million it had paid them to take everything off his hands.


Back to work for me. See you all tomorrow.

Near the end of the great documentary "MGM: When the Lion Roared" Debbie Reynolds recounts the time when she heard that the backlot was to be sold and demolished, she pleaded with the corporate heads that she and all the other stars from the golden age would be glad to greet people at the gates and give guided tours. The plea fell on deaf ears and the rest is sad history. No more New York street, London street, Showboat waterfront or Andy Hardy's house. As Debbie said, (paraphrasing) "Look at Universal Studios and what they did. We had it already built. If a dumb girl from Burbank could see it, why couldn't they? Why didn't they? Well, it's too late now."

I have been to what's left of MGM (now Sony) many times during my years in LA, and it's a fraction of the size of what it once was. Most of the land became what is now the town of Culver City. It's a shame.

72 #63 TFG says these ridiculous things to press people who will never call him on it, either because they do not understand what shooting skeet entails, or they just believe every lie which comes out of his mouth.

In this case, the interview is in the New Republic. Thus it is just printed without comment.

Pertinent questions like "what type of shotgun, what gauge of ammo, what's your rate of hitting the clay piegeons" are all conveniently left out.

85 About Jello salads. Jello was invented in the 1890's, but really took off in sales around the end of WWI. By the 1920's, it was considered a big deal to have a Jello salad at a luncheon.

My grandmother, who was a young married woman in the 1920's, ALWAYS brought Jello salads to family gatherings. Her two specialties were lemon Jello with grated carrots and lime jello with finely chopped cabbage and celery. (I am not making that last one up.)

They were always brought in glass covered "refrigerator dishes" which were the forerunners of Tupperware and other food storage containers.

An "unlocked cell phone" is one that is not tied to a service provider. For example my phone was originally tied to ATT. Now it is not tied to anyone thanks to a provider who reprogrammed it.

It means the firmware that ties the phone to a specific carrier has been removed or rendered inactive. This also removes a lot of limitations that might be imposed by the carrier or the phone maker, such as Apple's requirement that all software installations happen through their infrastructure.

If the carrier's means of monitoring phone behavior is removed, many activities they might charge extra for, such as data tethering, become accessible at no added cost to the user.

99 "Unlocking" cell phone: most cell phones are capable of working on many networks. The manufacturer has software in it that prevents you from easily changing carriers. When you buy a phone at the Verizon store for a great price, the manufacturer is, in effect, being subsidized by the service business. "unlocking" the phone means that you can switch from one carrier to another and NOT have to buy a new phone.

A muslim who raped a 13-year-old girl he groomed on Facebook has been spared a prison sentence after a judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.

Adil Rashid, 18, claimed he was not aware that it was illegal for him to have sex with the girl because his education left him ignorant of British law.

Yesterday Judge Michael Stokes handed Rashid a suspended sentence, saying: ‘Although chronologically 18, it is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters.’

Earlier Nottingham Crown Court heard that such crimes usually result in a four to seven-year prison sentence. But the judge said that because Rashid was ‘passive’ and ‘lacking assertiveness’, sending him to jail might cause him ‘more damage than good’.

Excellent article BTW. At least the Good people a Breitbart can spot a true patriot.

"I was constantly amazed at the anti-establishment stands she took at every step in her rise to power. Moves that a conventional politician would run from, she embraced: in Wasilla, in Juneau, and in the rise of the Tea Party. Her ability to see “over the hill” to what is really important, what really matters, is what sets her apart."

I'm not gonna start a Palin thread, Vic did that, But I find it coincidental that many that insulted my queen must now read about her greatness in another highly respected conservative blog.

2010, but this time around we need to shake up the GOP machine that
tries to orchestrate away too much of the will of constitutional
conservatives who don’t give a hoot how they do it in DC. DC is out of
touch, obviously. Voices on the right like Mark Levin, Rush, and the
writers here at Breitbart have come out strongly against the “go along
to get along” politicians who wave the white flag before the battle even
begins

A San Francisco supervisor wants to rename the city's airport in honor of civil rights leader Harvey Milk, a change supporters said would send a global message about the importance and struggles of gays and lesbians for equality.

Supervisor David Campos will introduce legislation Tuesday that would place the proposal to rename San Francisco International Airport as Harvey Milk San Francisco International Airport before voters in November. To send the name change to voters, Campos needs the support of five other supervisors, and Monday he already had four co-sponsors.

"There are already a number of things honoring Harvey Milk, including schools, but nothing of this national and international scale," said Campos, who is gay. "It's time to send a message that members of the LGBT community are treated with dignity and respect ...."





Actually, the message is "Our City" and "Breeders Raus!". But, you knew that....

179 Morons need to check out the Latin Mass.

There is one proven method of rolling back the liberals, undoing their damage, rebuilding the culture of conservativism (AKA natural law morality), and transforming communities.

The Latin Mass. Everything else degrades, without fail, into "well, my personal interpertation is X, so there!" both on religion and in regards to the Constitution.

The liberals spent the last 50 years trying to destroy it, knowing it to be the one thing capae of destroying them totally. Get thou to a Latin Mass.

191 #179 Went with my nephew to a Latin mass at Holy Rosary in Indianapolis. I was handicapped by not being able to follow the missal because so much of it was sung, which is hard if you don't know Latin.

It was very solemn though, and very, very different from the NO mass I attend. It was a glimpse into the past and yet a hope for the future, as so many of the families there were young.

I cannot attend that mass often, as it is quite a drive for me.

Not quie the same. Collectible glssware of that era falls into 3 categories:

1. Depression glass, handed out as premiums at theaters or in soap or oatmeal
2. Elegant glass of the Depression Era, sold in department stores. (Fostoria, Heisey, Cambidge, Imperial)
3. "Kitchen" glass : refrigerator dishes, mixing bowls, casseroles, measuring cups, etc. sold by people like Pyrex, Anchor Hocking, and Glasbake. Kitchen glass spans the era from 1920 through the 1960's.

Ed is right. Refrigerator dishes are highly collectible, not only as collection pieces but because more people prefer to use glass over plastic, so they have become a useful collectible.

(We live in one of the square states in the middle.) Dude was openly campaigning for TFG from the pulpit in '08. We landed in a great church.
Anyway, one of the things we like to do when we travel is visit other churches with our 2 daughters. We were in Victoria BC this summer, and wandered into this old Episcopal church in downtown Victoria. We were warmly greeted, and went into the great hall, where they had tables set up. We were told this was a "cafe style" service. They had all of these fantastic delicacies laid out. Smoked salmon pinwheel sandwiches, little pastries, great coffee. Pretty good way to start a Sunday on the road.

221 #205 We are short a priest right now and when the Latin mass was approved Monsignor made it plain that he wasn't going to do it, mostly for logistical reasons.

We are a very large parish and it would move people not wanting to have a Latin mass into one of the other masses, causing overcrowding. (This is a real problem. Because we are short a priest they already had to drop one mass on Sunday morning and condense 4 into 3, so all of those masses are already crowded.)

Secondly, our church was built in the early 80's and we do not have a communion rail, and you would have to move the altar back to place it in the proper position, and it is extremely heavy.

The third problem is that learning the Latin mass is hard for any priest as the rubrics and even the clothing are different. And herein is an additional point: a lot of the newer priests do not know enough Latin to do it.

Fourth problem is that we have a lot of altar girls and as I understand it, they cannot be servers at the latin mass.

I am a convert of 6 years. I am not going to start demanding a Latin mass when I know myself I would not make it every time. I imagine in this church it will be a while before we have one, maybe when we get a new priest in 5 years or so.

Some uranium glass is depression glass and some depression glass is uranium glass. Two things to look for: 1) it's a shade of green that 2) glows under a blacklight, You can buy LED blacklight flashlights for around $10.00 now.

There's a related glass that also contains uranium as a colorant called vaseline glass. It's a yellowish color, glows under UV light and is highly collectable. Some of its depression glass. There's also jadeite glass from that period that's collectable. Unlike uranium and vaseline glass, which for the most part are transparent, jadeite is opaque. The most collectable jadeite glows.

They made some crazy, beautiful glass stuff during the first half of the 20th century. Browse eBay and you will be amazed at some of the stuff you will see.

If you are going to lose--and we are--don't vote for the guys who led you there. And that's the GOP. I won't claim third party, anything like that. Just that I'm going to have difficulty voting for an automatic loser like the GOP. One can always abstain.

The war seems over. Certainly the national GOP acts like it. What is important is that we do not sacrifice chances for future victory, and in my opinion that means no longer putting the national GOP as the flag-carrier for all we hold dear. It will have to be won at the local level, neighbor to neighbor, and it will take a while. Much will be lost, but it is going to be lost anyway.

Let the national GOP take care of itself. It's what they usualy want to do anyway. We will have to take care of ourselves the best we can.
