6 I just took a little stroll through the comments on a HufPo piece about the Barkey's "Do Over" on Obamacare. Yeah, I know. Glutton. Punishment. Those people are fucking crazy. Comments fall into 4 categories: 1) Website is fixable, so, no big deal!! 2) Rethuglicans have no plan, so, Shut Up!! 3) Obamacare is here to stay!!! (yeah, they use LOTS of extra punctuation. They believe it makes their point more lucid.) 4) This makes no sense to me: "Obamacare is fucked up because of Republican "cuts". Was I sleeping when the Republicans made ANY cuts to Ocare funding? This whole thing is a pure D fuckup. From start to finish.

8 Did anyone watch FNC last night? Kelly and Hannity both did show on how millenials are screwed (by Obamacare among other things).

I bring it up because the most eager right winger in Hannity's audience was Juan William's son.

I bet he brought up Obamacare at Thanksgiving dinner.

9 I remember 6th grade social studies.  We had a segment on Argentina.  Argentina in 1966 was a "first-world" country.  Socialism destroyed it.

No matter what the web site does the MFM is prepared to announce on Monday that all is well and proclaim Obamacare a success.

11 Giant prehistoric toilet unearthed

A gigantic "communal latrine" created at the dawn of the dinosaurs has been unearthed in Argentina.

Thousands of fossilised poos left by rhino-like megaherbivores were found clustered together, scientists say.

The 240-million-year-old site is the "world's oldest public toilet" and the first evidence that ancient reptiles shared collective dumping grounds.

...  just what we needed .. Triasic poddy stories.

13 Eight people are now confirmed to have died after a police helicopter crashed into a busy pub in Glasgow city centre.

Three people inside the helicopter and five people inside The Clutha were killed after the Police Scotland aircraft came down at 22:30 on Friday.

A further 14 people are being treated for "very serious injuries" in hospitals across the city.

... can't even get a tall one without the police coming in

14 Argentina in 1966 was a "first-world" country. Socialism destroyed it. My wife spent six long weeks there 2 summer's ago. It IS destroyed, too. The roads/infrastructure are in a shambles. The postal system is so corrupt, no one can send anything, anywhere. Packs of wild dogs roam everywhere. Their monetary policy is so messed up, the black market/barter economy is probably more robust than the "official" economy. The government lies and cooks data at their whim. Hey...this is starting to sound AWFULLY familiar.

15 Almost all the SA countries are now socialist (marist) controlled. Regarding Argentina, on the upside is that people who normally would invest in Argentina are now seeking investments in the US.

16 Vladimir Putin's legendary lateness is back in the spotlight after he kept Pope Francis waiting during a recent visit to the Vatican. What lies behind his chronic tardiness?

The Russian president was 50 minutes late to meet the Pope on Monday. And papal courtiers were left "shivering" outside as they waited to welcome the Russian president, who was held up by women protesting outside his hotel in support of punk band Pussy Riot, says independent daily Moskovskiy Komsomolets.

The Pope and the Italian press appear to have taken it in their stride. Given his reputation, they probably expected nothing else.

Not so the South Korean media after he kept President Park Geun-hye waiting for 30 minutes during a visit to Seoul earlier in November - particularly as the already late Putin stopped en route to chat with martial arts enthusiasts.

"Mr Putin, be on time next time," fumed a Korea Times headline.

But the liberal Russian website Slon.ru points out the Koreans need not be upset. Being only half an hour late is a "mark of the deepest respect" from Putin.

Posted by: Brave Sir Robin at November 30, 2013 12:06 PM (CcNYi) I was reading the blog of a German woman who was working there. She also described the day to day fuckedness. Times are tough. There is no money and no power. They have to deal with blackouts and flooding. Long lines for everything.

21 9 One of my closest colleagues is from Argentina. His family immigrated from Croatia to Argentina in 1939 when Oscar was a baby. His family opposed Peron and Peron had his father, mother and siblings murdered in 1955. Oscar was away at trade school so they missed him but he still had a death mark. He hid from the authorities and when Peron was overthrown he escaped to Mexico by ship.

22 Re. Comment #6:

You will never break through to these people.  Never.  So don't even try.  And "these people" are half the country.

Then how do we win back the country?  Simple, do what the Dems do.  You know, the folks who oppose voter ID?  I would never suggest voter fraud ... after all, that would be illegal, don'tcha know ... but Dale and Wade Rathke could lead us to the Promised Land.  They know how it's done, in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida.  That's all it would take.  Three states to restore constitutional governance.

I've never understood trying to win hearts and minds.  It. Can't. Be. Done.

23 An Ocean Beach man is facing a felony charge and three years behind bars — for trimming some shrubbery.

The San Diego County District Attorney’s Office is prosecuting Juvencio Adame, known locally as Vince, for “defacement, damage and destruction” in excess of $400 or more after he pruned the shrubbery near his home in July, court records show.

The shrubbery in this case was on city land that abuts property that he owns on Niagara Avenue along a popular surfing area in Ocean Beach. Adame told neighbors he did so because the overgrown shrubbery became a haven for homeless people to sleep and litter.

24 Adame told neighbors he did so because the overgrown shrubbery became a haven for homeless people to sleep and litter. Sounds like a good place to walk ALL of the neighborhood's dogs.

26 Trimming his shrubbery is another way for saying masturbation, right?

27 Argentina says it intends to go after companies drilling for oil off the disputed Falkland Islands, triggering a fresh diplomatic row with Britain. http://goo.gl/RFuuUN

28 The Latin American country's Congress passed a law Thursday threatening "criminal sanctions" on companies and individuals involved in "the illegal exploration" of hydrocarbons in the area, the Argentine Embassy in London said in a prepared statement. "The law provides for prison sentences for the duration of up to 15 years; fines equivalent to the value of 1.5 million barrels of oil; the banning of individuals and companies from operating in Argentina; and the confiscation of equipment and any hydrocarbons that would have been illegally extracted," it said. ______________________________ These people are nuts.

Personally, I always thought the Jesuits were the farthest left ... but I never could keep all of those monastical orders sorted out.

 

8-)

 

 

... but maybe there's a good analogy there anyway. Between the Leninists, the Trotskyites, the Autonomists, the Gramsciites, the Syndicalists, the Stalinists, the Post-Structuralists, and the Anarchists ... I can't seem to keep the monastical orders of Marxism sorted out either.

"These people" are not half the country, more like a third. Seen Obama's approval numbers lately? That's his base, and it still has room to shrink some.

31 One of the oddest stories my wife brought back from Argentina: If a family, w/children, squats on your unoccupied property, you can NOT evict them. There is a shitload of unoccupied properties, because the housing market is completely stagnant, so there is a cottage industry of guarding properties against squatters. More jobs created via Socialism.

32 Movement of Priests for the Third World http://goo.gl/3DYslO A bit dated and totally fapping. I think more than the alleged number left the priesthood. More than a few were involved in terrorist activities.

33 How come leftists never want to start businesses and employ people as a way of helping them? Suspicious...

Running a business is like too much working for a living and violates the fundamental leftist concept of managing other's lives for them while receiving a nice stipend for providing advice!
