Happy Thursday.

The DOD's new medal for cyber and drone warfare is getting a fair bit of scrutiny.

Sen. Graham's Hatch-like reinvention for his reelection campaign next year is well underway.

Rep. Justin Amash, the guy who Speaker Boehner kicked off the Budget Committee for being a jerk, ran to Buzzfeed yesterday to unload on the GOP for trying to pin the sequester idea on President Obama. Then he took to Twitter to accuse "most ppl in DC" of playing "petty partisan battles" with no attempt at "legislating or persuading." Pot, kettle, Congressman.

One of my favorite cheesy mob movies is "The St. Valentine's Day Massacre" with the very believable Jason Robards playing Sicilian Al Capone. Watch for a young Jack Nicholson playing a hit man. What's strange about his cameo is that he sounds like he's doing a Don Corleone impression - 6 years before Brando played "The Godfather."

Weird...

I wasn't aware of a racist parallel between Persians overall and monkeys-- it's just that A-jahd is a hairy little twerp who honestly looks monkey-like. Otherwise I'd say there was a lot of 'racist' shit about Chimpy McHitlerburton a few years ago...

40 Hello, ‘rons and ‘ronettes. I was asked for a Mickey Rooney story the other day, so here we go:



Like most American men of the 30s and 40s, the former Joe Yule, Jr., was a fan of Clark Gable. Of course, as a fellow actor on the MGM lot, Rooney got to see Gable up close and in person much more than other people and was able to make a close study of the Gable persona. A notorious womanizer even at that age (Ava Gardner was his biggest, but far from only, conquest), Rooney began imitating the Gable swagger in order to help him get women. Not only that, he also copied Gable’s half-cocked smile and Gable’s clothing. If Clark wore a certain hat, so did Mickey. Gable smoked a pipe – so did Rooney.



Gable was amused by the imitation; one day, while watching a nearly-twin Rooney saunter by, Gable waved and then whispered to friends standing nearby, “One of these days I’ll really throw him for a loop – I’ll start wearing a sarong!”



Rooney was married eight times, not counting the many affairs he had with co-stars, starlets and civilians.* During the filming of Baby Face Nelson, he became close friends with co-star Carolyn Jones (the future Morticia Addams). One afternoon between takes, Rooney talked about the women he had wooed and lost: “I buy them shoes, and the next thing you know, they put them on and walk away from me.”



Hope you all have a wonderful day.



*The one woman he never had an affair with was Judy Garland. Rumor has it that he did once try to bed her, but never followed through, saying that it would have been like doing it with his sister.

Although when I was in country I did see a directive from XVIII Airborne Corps stating that anyone who was submitted for an MSM would automatically have it upgraded to a BSM.

60 MPPP, wow Mickey was such a letch.

TCM showed in the early hours this morning a movie called 'Susan Slept Here.' Could not sleep nor could I write. So I watched TCM and was suprised at what a rom-com gem this movie was.

Dick Powell plays this screenwriter trying to write his next success and is in a dry patch. So its Christmas Eve and cop buddies decide to drop off a bundle of inspiration, namely Debbie Reynolds as a 17 yr old who should be heading to Juvie. They really don't want to do that so bring her over to Powell's pad. Just to baby sit over night and give him inspiration. Well one things leads to another, including Powell's fiancee, played by Anne Francis, talking to the juvie... Taschlin, who had earlier made cartoons, directed this movie.

Anne Francis as Isabelle 'the baby faced killer' was just wow. She nailed the peroxide blonde gold digger with the killer blue stare role. And Debbie was pure comedy as she watched and reacted to the home movies of Powell and Francis, Powell's character had run off to Big Bear with his secretary to write, leaving Debbie being chaperoned by Powell's old Navy commanding officer who is now his flunky.

Great movie. I laughed and howled at it. Thinking of getting it on DVD.

66 Yes, Anna, Susan is an underappreciated movie. It's probably Tashlin's best, IMO - frankly, The Girl Can't Help It and Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? are little more than extended dirty jokes - and Debbie Reynolds is very bunk-worthy, especially at the end.

I think the best part about 'Susan Slept Here' is how the characters all change and grow. Even as the laugh riot is happening. And the ending was just perfect. Virgil looking like he is finally going to score with the sultry brunette with the come hither prowl... and he has to report in that night at San Diego.

I also didn't put myself in for a Purple Heart or any other medal post-ambush after a CIA medic spent an hour chipping auto glass out of my arm and then told me - sorry 'bout that shit - that I was going to lose it.

Any one of those drone jockeys who willingly accepts this needs to be mocked and shunned from the company of Polite society.

Fuckers.

That's what I've been saying. While I don't disagree with Sven's "Run Red" campaign, PA should be kept in mind as a possible destination for conservatives in dark blue states. Currently, the state is dark blue in the cities, light blue in the suburbs, and red everywhere else. It might be turn-able.

Besides, *I* don't want to move.

89 Regarding the Bronze Star. My uncle has one in his belongings that we discovered after he passed away recently. He was a paratrooper in WW2. I'll have to look to see if he has the valor device. Was it a watered down medal in WW2 or did that happen as the years went on?

IIRC there were always 2 versions.

Odds are your uncle has the V device

Awards were not cheap back then.

93 "My wife wants flowers on VDay, so off to the florist I go."

After giving my wife a florist shop for Valentine's Day 15 years ago, I've got a bit of insight into thiswhole flower thing.

The big problem now for people buying flowers is overseas phone banks.A normal customer will want to send flowers to someone in adifferent town, so they get on theinternet and search "flowers" and the town of the recipient. New programs take the town name and attach it to the word "Florist" and provide an 800 numberconnected to Malasia.

The phone bank takes the order posing as a local florist. They skim 30% off the top and send an order to an actual local florist. The customer receives an arrangement smaller than what they paid would justify and they end up complaining to the local florist.

Of course, the phone bank operators don't give a shit. They've got your money so everything is good with them.

If the florist you're dealing with doesn't list a physical address where you think you're sending flowers, keep looking.

Yep, I think I had fun.

My Granpa earned two Bronze and one silver star. He was in the 314th, Participated in the battle of the Bulge and several other conflicts. I'm quite sure they didn't give them away back in the day.

I think I know why they may be cheapening medals. If you look at pictures of Dictators in their Military Uniforms, Think Idi Amin Dada, Hussein or any other tin pot dictator and they pin so many medals on them they jingle while they walk. If you reduce the Value of the medals to things you think about doing, then Obama can have a chestfull too.

I'm sure in the decade or two after WWII it wasn't too popular to mention the USSR loses in the war, but I seem to recall seeing them recently as a little short of 10 million. Which is why Obama can give up all the nukes he wants, they're never gonna give up their big boomers. I don't blame them. Europe used to go nuts all the time.

164 I gotta say "meh" on the medal thing. No, it shouldn't be a combat medal, but yes, there should be a medal. Ranking it high hopefully would prevent it just being handed out for BS ordinary duty and reserve it for real contributions, say like saving an Ambassador about to be assfucked by a horde of muslims or whatever.

Jesus.

He "spared" everybody who's not on his list...and most of the people on his list.

So, he meant his list. Workplace Shooting Guy almost always does, whether his list is on paper or in his head. The normal pattern is, they go to shoot up the assholes at work, shoot nobody else on the way there, then they shoot the assholes, then...nothing, usually. They frequently sit around and wait for the cops. We'll never know, but this character seems to have done a version of that. He started his list, fucked up, then did nothing, right down the damn street from the cops. For days! ...Apparently.

"Compassion." Hey! That's precisely what you racists! are always said not to have. But the specific contrast being pointed to is between this character and other recent shooters, who've been (understood as) crazy white People Like You. Like in that Chris Rock joke. HEY REMEMBER DAT

The idea that all white people (who aren't famous) are soulless monsters who all need to die (self-defense!) is pervasive among black people.

It's really amazing to me when I actually stop to think just how fast California has declined.

It took 50 - 60 years of Democrat mismanagement to turn Michigan (and Detroit, specifically) into the dumps they are. California was almost conservative-ish just 30 - 40 years ago.

237 The subtext there is clear. Dorner was only after the people who 'wronged' him, i.e., The Man and The White System.

Yes, we must remember this. The MFM will make sure we remember this by never mentioning that Dorner didn't kill the people he felt wronged him -- he killed their family instead.

238 Yeah I saw it and read Deebow's rant. I feel the same way for the same damn reason.



And if you are thinking "Deebow Bannion, whyareyouso
upset about this? Don't you want to recognize the contributions that
these people have made to the GWOT?"



Ask methat after you read my Bronze Star citation...

Just because I have to bitch about this too: Ask me that after you read my Air Medal with Combat V citation.

239 This means that for a lot of people paying the tax will be cheaper than buying insurance. And since the new law prevents insurance companies from denying you coverage or charging you more if you have a pre-existing condition, you can always buy a plan later if you develop an expensive medical condition.

Not a bug, a feature. Just one more brief rest stop on the way to the progressive utopia of Single Payor.

You have no idea how exhausting it is reading off of a teleprompter and getting your ass kissed by the media

All part of the plan, a tax for nothing in return.


FOREWARD!

245 "That's why my Administration will keep cutting red tape and speeding up new oil and gas permits. But I also want to work with this Congress to encourage the research and technology that helps natural gas burn even cleaner and protects our air and water," Obama said.

I missed this little gem the other day. WTF is he talking about?!?! Is the new AGW scheme stating that nat gas doesn't burn clean enough? Are we really that fucking boned that this idiot can get away with saying stupid shit like this?

246 Saw a great bumper sticker yesterday in So Cal on a guys car who apparently doesn't fear being keyed.
"Did you vote for Obama? Thanks a lot, asshole!"
Wish he looked over so I could blow him a kiss!
