Happy Wednesday.

I didn't watch any of the speeches last night, but I'm told Sen. Rubio's was good. Here's the text. The chattering class appears to be spending all its time this morning poring over Obama's speech and, since I don't give a damn, that's the only link you're getting.

How about another cover?

Heat waves, droughts, wildfires, and floods – all are now more frequent

To be fair, Rand Paul could have taken a tougher stance on immigration. As it was, he gave a one sentence confirmation that we are a land that favors immigrants. Nothing about illegals, or border security etc. He just glossed over it which is fine, but I think he could have given a much more conservative-appealing response.

But the rest of it was quite good. I am liking Rand Paul more and more as time goes on.

44 Hello, ‘rons and ‘ronettes.Yesterday Hrothgar wanted to hear about Wallace Beery, so here’s a little bit on the Missouri-born actor:


Beery (it was his real name) found his greatest fame playing palookas-with-a-heart-of-gold characters in such films as Min and Bill, The Champ and Tugboat Annie, even assaying more complex characters as Long John Silver in Treasure Island and General-Director Preysing in Grand Hotel*


During his high period at MGM in the 1930s, he was one of the studio’s top box office draws, a bottom-line fact which rendered his personal life as an abusive, drunken brawler moot. Not just a scene-stealer, he was an actual thief as well, repeatedly taking props, clothing and furniture from the sets of any movie he worked on, an action which caused at least one Metro head to sigh, “he’s a son of a bitch, but he’s our son of a bitch.”


This “our son of a bitch" attitude was starkly illustrated in 1937, when MGM spirited Beery out of the country so that he couldn’t be arrested, subpoenaed or even questioned about the death of former Three Stooges frontman Ted Healy, who was beaten to death outside of the Trocadero nightclub. For years, it was presumed that the belligerent Healy had insulted some anonymous college students outside the Troc and been beaten for his pains; it wasn’t until much later that it was revealed that it had been Beery, along with Albert “Cubby” Broccoli** and gangster Pat DiCicco who had killed Healy during a drunken brawl.


But that penchant for violence would have come as no surprise to Gloria Swanson. The two of them had met on the lot of the Keystone studio, where a young Beery was finding fame in a series of comic shorts where he played a gangling, rough-hewn Swedish maid of all work named “Sweedie.” The petite, lovely Swanson was an ill-fit at the knockabout studio, and Beery was instantly attracted to her luminous beauty. He wooed and courted her insistently until their marriage in 1918.


But Beery had already shown a darker side; when Swanson became pregnant at 16, he forced her to abort the child. Then, once the ring was on her finger the next year, Beery’s sour attitude towards Swanson – exacerbated because she was making more money than he - turned rancid. As she told it in her autobiography Swanson on Swanson, on their wedding night, Beery hustled Swanson’s mother out of the house they shared with some weak excuse; locking the bedroom door, he proceeded to rape Swanson. From that point, Swanson’s life with Beery was a round of mental, physical and sexual abuse until they divorced two years later.


In the 1940s, Beery’s box-office appeal began to slip; although none of his movies lost money, it was clear that his appeal was fading. His last movie was 1949s Big Jack, where he co-starred with old partner Marjorie “Ma Kettle” Main. He died on April 15 of that year.


*Beery was one of the few who didn’t attempt a German accent in the film; he merely roughened his already deep voice.


**later producer of the Bond films.

Yeah, Swanson had bad luck with marriage and bad judgement with men. In her defense, however, she was one of the biggest movie stars of the 1920s - I'll tell you a story about her second marriage one day and the hysteria that followed - so unless you were a man with supreme self-confidence and brass balls, being "Mr Swanson" was hard to swallow.

I'm sure you heard my best one, but I'll tell it again: Davis was a hostess at the Hollywood Canteen during WWII and had a reputation for taking the hunkiest serviceman home with her each night. A radio reporter caught up with one khaki-clad gent outside the Canteen and asked him, "Hoping to see some stars tonight?"

"Yup,"
the soldier replied. "Bette Davis."

"Oh, she's your favorite?"

"Nope,"
the soldier finished. "I just hear she screws like a mink!"

Icedog, here's another Davis story: on the first day of shooting All About Eve, Celeste Holm saw Davis sitting off to the side. She walked up to her and said, "Good morning, Miss Davis."

Davislooked up at Holm with those large sloe eyes. "Oh, shit," she rasped. "Good manners."

As Holm later told it, "I turned around and walked away. And I never spoke a word to her again."

99 Aside from lightening articulation, Pope Benedict chose his retirement announcement timing to be followed by this meteor arrival along with Ash Wednesday today. This Lent/Easter, the buzz isn't about the Resurrection of Christ, but politics. Hell, Obama already ruined Christmas with his unprecedented earlier than early initial POTUS campaign.

"Cardinal Peter Turkson, a 64-year-old Ghanaian prelate, is the bookmaker's
early favourite to succeed Pope Benedict XVI." -- The Telegraph
Turkson is reputed to have led the Vatican's announcement last year advancing the case for a single global bank. Imo, hardly helpful to local grassroots entrepreneurs, as the current credit unions provide responsive services to local individuals without the "need" of global banking authoritarian interventionism, overseeing who gets what, according to whatever political agenda, particularly the influence of "social justice". That American trend made Obama POTUS, gifting his agenda into law. So how goes Rome, "needing" its Southern Hemisphere membership financially/politically?

Meanwhile, watch the media obsess over the typical social conservative sexual role issues per candidate towards next month's new Pope election.

Hi Sooth!

At the start of this thread, people were talking about whether or not they saw the STFU speech. That's why I said no TV for me.

The Bristol County Republican Committee PAC is for recruiting and funding conservative and/or libertarian Republican candidates for offices whose districts are in, or whose districts overlap Bristol County.

A second purpose is to train candidates and campaign managers to run more effective races.

A third purpose is to recruit people who have conservative and libertarian sensabilities but who hate the GOP (like many of is here do) to come enroll, take over their town and city committees, and eventually the state committee. In essence, to "Be the Republican Party."

A fourth purpose is to keep pressure on those legislators already in office with coordinated phone, email, and mail campaigns. It doesn't take long for someone to be in power for too long. We can't just send them and forget them. They will forget about us, too.

A fifth purpose is to give us standing in the various cities and towns to make the changes to the nuts and bolts of the electoral process to minimize voter fraud. This includes Show ID to Vote initiatives, but also making sure there are trained poll watchers at the polling places, and moving polling places to neutral locations. For instance, several polling places in Fall River and New Bedford are physically inside housing projects. This is obviously wrong. They need to be moved, and "The Bristol County GOP" has more cache and standing than "Joe blow and his buddies from out of town" would have.

Of course, all this takes time money and knowledge. I've got time and knowledge, and my partner has extensive fundraising skills. Over the next few years, were going to make a dent in the blue supermajority in Mass. Plus, it's fun.

Meh.

SARS was over-blown. I figure this is, too. It's a respiratory disease; like all such diseases, it'll kill the old, the young, and the poor-in-health.

Not that I'm okay with the death part, that sucks beyond measure, but a) you have to die of something (I'm hoping for too much Jama-haran) and b) I think we've become a little over-sensitized to these kinds of things because we've knocked most of the fatal respiratory diseases out of the 1st world (or we think we have).

But we still have some of them. RSV kills infants every year, so does Whooping Cough. Pneumonia kills old people, or people who are already sick otherwise, all the time too. Same for the Flu and West-Nile.

It sucks, and it would be nice if it didn't happen. But when you look at HOW MANY Brits (in their armed forces, if nothing else) have been to the ME (not to mention there are no reported cases in the US- and we have even more people over there), I'm thinking we're not exactly in line for the next great pandemic.

No they're not.

First, it has to pass congress. Okay, that's probably a given.

Then, it goes into effect- at which point the people in those "low-skilled, entry-level jobs" get kicked to the curb as quickly as possible, so that restaurants, grocery stores, and other such places don't have to jack all their prices (as high) and still don't hurt their bottom line (as much).

Increasing the minimum wage is a good way to a) spark inflation while b) increasing unemployment.

Of course, with TFG, that could be exactly the point.

149 Didn't watch 1 second of the SOTU speech. It's gotten so repetitive and predictable it's not worth watching anymore. "The economy sucks because it's all Bush's fault and we have to invest here and there while taxing the shit out of people." I'm guessing that was the jist of it. Rubio's speech I did catch and thought context and speech wise was one of the best rebuttals to a SOTU I've ever seen. he left no issue untouched and directly called out the President. That said the delivery could have been better and that water moment was awkward. He needs more RNC-like speeches

It's not just bad for the people who want an entry-level job so they can move up the ladder or off welfare, it's bad for everyone who works for wages.

Yeah. Though Carla is starting to step up. She was pretty good in Brian's absence yesterday.

Mostly, I listen for the traffic- even though Cumulus castrated their traffic reporting (no more live from the air? really?) theirs is still the best in the market. And since I drive to north-freaking-Plano from (effectively) Mansfield every day, the traffic reporting is fairly important to me.

202 The other issue with raising the minimum wage is it hurts people who were making marginally better than minimum wage because it reduces their buying power.

Back when minimum wage was 5something, my husband was a package handler for UPS making 10/hr. Not spectacular, but "livable".as the dems would say.

Is UPS going to.up their starting pay? Doubtful. Instead, we just brought a lot.of.people down to mimimum wage.

It's the old argument (that Democrats never answer): "If raising the minimum wage really doesn't hurt business, and really does 'help people,' why not raise it to $15/hr? 20? 100?"

Of course, the answer is that it does hurt business (they'll never admit that), and they've just decided that no one needs those icky profits, and our economy should run on "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs."

People who 'live' on minimum wage do so by taxpayer subsidy anyway.

This is ultimately a wealth transfer from one group of 'poor' to another - the taxpayer will still pay for their iphones, groceries, and new sneakers. Some people will just get a bit more on top of that and others a bit less.

I recorded it so we can watch this weekend when we celebrate Presdent Obama Day on Monday. I am so excited about the next fore yeers and how grate things/econonomy willhappen and all the children will have meaningful jobs that pay a decent wage, but not too much because that will make them greedy (Like Mitt Romerney).

265 Rubio's Spanish is delightfully (to me) accented. Skimming through both versions, I thought he was slightly more impressive in Spanish.
Sen. Paul, M.D., was completely unexceptionable. If he could succeed just a little bit more in disguising the contempt he feels (and we all feel) for the Commie-fag-junkie Complex, he could be an even more effective spokesman.
Ted Nugent seems to have been there mostly to make the Commie-fag-junkie Complex heads spin, like Linda Blair's in "The Exorcist" (1973). (Btw, search engines do not seem to yield much on Nooj from last night.)
Van Jones should be taken into custody and "questioned" until he spills the beans: he more or less threatened Sen. Rubio.
President Michael Jackson was and is a SCFoaMT. He should be impeached on 1000 counts, just to work up a sweat. After that, every single aspect of his personal life (except the young giantess and her little sister) should be relentlessly hounded down to the smallest detail. Why? to keep him on his heels before he completely f**ks us up.

272 Here's a question.

How long before Cali's fiscal woes force it to start selling off bits and pieces of itself to other states? I'm only partially joking, btw. As far as the prigs in CA are concerned the only places that matter are LA and its immediate vicinity, San Fran, and maybe Sacramento. I can see them willingly selling off the rest of their land to other states and just keeping one long, contiguous strip along the coast to connect together their havens of leftist bigotry. How hilarious would that be? Areas of CA's rich farmland that have been left fallow and unworked for years because of crushing regulation and taxes suddenly springing back to life as other, less fucked up states take charge.

Hell, if we had enough money we could buy a chunk of CA, name it "Moron Nation," and BOOM. Instant awesome.

274 We totally missed the ball with Palin and the Mysogyny.

Nope. They simply ignore that which does not fit their preconceived notions. It was ok, for instance, for a group of people to wear t-shirts emblazoned with the word 'cunt' to SP rallies. The left in general refused to talk about it, report it, and in 99/100 cases, even refused to condemn it.

When I was working in White Plains, there was a woman that was yucking it up one night about how SP said she could see Russia from her house. I corrected her, told her that was from an SNL skit, and even emailed her a link to the video clip. A week later, the woman was yucking it up about how SP said she could see Russia from her house.

They truly believe they're entitled to their own facts, and beating them over the heads with their obvious racism, misogyny, and bigotry is like trying to teach math to a pig....it wastes your time, and only annoys the pig.

286 Joffen, check out the TAA/TRA program. It is not a handout per se. It is a program partially funded by some employers that allows those that become unemployed to cross train into another field. I was laid off in '10 and took advantage of the program when I enrolled into a Technical school. The TRA program paid $20K towards my tuition plus weekly benies after my unemployment ran out until I graduated. The tuition plus pell grants paid every last penny of my school.

The help that we need to give to those "places" (being kind bygiving those hellholesthe dignity of being a "place")is to hand them a gun so that they can blow thier brains out right quick before they really become a problem that needs solving. I'm sorry for the folks that live in those sandboxes, but running before the tyrannts, from border to border and back again, always fleeing some religious brutes, is not the way to become a nation that is worth our time or blood or money.

Forget "anything they offer". You've got to get in there and demand everything they've got and more. Tell them you want a big titted nurse to come over and give you a sponge bath every day. This is you're money, so let them know you want some back now.

For the SS disability, if you happen to have a police report that says they found you hanging around from a chandelier, you go right the front of the line.

There are programs in place that aren't against conservative principles. They are there to help people at times in their lives when they need help. We don't begrudge helping people, we just think there are a lot of people who use it that aren't really in need.

You, even though you deny it, need the help. Take it.

291 75 Anyhow, My favorite actor was always Earnest Borgnine and my favorite old movie has always been Marty. Any stories about that?

I think I've got something about thewriting and casting ofMarty in an oldbook. It may have to wait until next week, though, OSP.

---

Here's part of the writeup about Marty from TV Tropes-

"Springtime for Hitler: Borgnine sometimes said he owed his career to one of these. Burt Lancaster and his business partner decided to produce Marty thinking the movie (which was based off of a popular Telefilm) would lose money at the box office and they could use the expenses as a tax write-off, and they figured casting a fat, unattractive actor best known for playing heavies would ensure its demise. It ended up winning Borgnine the Best Actor Oscar (not to mention the movie itself winning Best Picture) and becoming one of the most profitable films of all time."

To explain, "Springtime For Hitler" is a term based on The Producers for "a sure-fire flop" that inexplicably succeeds.

If you're using it for its "original" intent as a bridge back to self-sufficiency, that's no sin. The issue is folks who use it as primary support, basically getting paid for voting.

(Note the quotes. I'm barely willing to accept the premise there was once a noble intent behind this kind of thing. But it's touch and go these days.)

293 re: Every time anyone on the left makes fun of rubio, call them racist and ask them what they have against hispanics. Turn their tactics back on them.

Fucking don't.

"Racist" has a definition. It means you. You can't "turn" that "back." You have no power to.

All you can do by condemning people with "racist" is give yourself a habit of condemning people with "racist." Whose habit is that?

Is it yours? Do you want it? Why? What for?

Who are you going to use "racist" against, when the actual functioning definition of the word--the only one with any real-world credibility--is people like you?

You'll use it on people like you--and you'll become someone else.

John McCain, for example.

296 I watched bits and pieces of the SOTU and the response as I flipped back and forth between that and Justified. Justified was infinitely more entertaining. I have many thoughts I will try to form into a coherent post at some other point, but I did really like Rubio's message. However - we live in a presentation, powerpoint-society where image trumps all. His water break was extremely awkward and poor-playing. In a time where conservatives of all stripes need to rebrand their messaging - this gives unnecessary ammo to the leftists and the media (BIRM) to hammer him.

302 Thanks, OSP! Already picked it up. Director's Cut is next on my list.

My boyfriend taped the SOTU address, played it while I was in the living room and kept saying "Why are you so negative?" I finally went back and hid in the bedroom, played some Old Crow Medicine Show on Pandora. I've made a lot of progress with the boyfriend. He didn't vote for TJF last time. But he still thinks he has something to say. He told me "They are going to start building Macs in America". I told him "Good, there will be jobs for all those illegal Mexicans." My humor is not appreciated.

And as for how hard it is to make ends meet on minimum wage, Social Security pays even less. And they routinely deny cost of living increases there by fudging the numbers.
