FRIDAY!

This Politico magazine piece, "Confessions From A Former TSA-Agent," is interesting reading.

More on the Halbig case -- the Obamacare subsidies challenge.

The RNC continues to expand its digital and data operation.

I was on Bruce Caroll's Match Game podcast last night, along with conservative blogosphere notables Ed Morrissey, John Brodigan, Amy Miller, Sarah Desprat, and Mary Chastain.

Our weekly podcast will be up today with guest Guy Benson.

Have a great weekend.

Posted by: Anthony L. at January 31, 2014 07:00 AM (34n6F) Got a great recipe from Food.com. I added walnuts as well as baking powder with the baking soda. Only problem with the recipe was they should have gave you how much banana you needed by weight and not number. Had to bake it a bit longer so it was not wet. Turned out perfect.

The gun control debate is Exhibit #1 in the "all politics is local" discussion. State by state, overly restrictive gun laws have been falling down, and it's all due to state organizations.



If you are interested in repealing these overly restrictive gun laws at all, you need to be part of your state organization (regardless if you are part of any national organizations or not). Here in NC it is Grass Roots North Carolina, and they can be found at www.grnc.org

40 FLORENCE, Italy — More than two years after Amanda Knox returned to the U.S. apparently home free, an Italian court Thursday reinstated her murder conviction in the stabbing of her roommate and increased her sentence to 28½ years in prison, raising the specter of a long extradition fight. Anyone want to lay odds Obama hands her over?

Maybe I'm wrong here, but it never seemed to me that that was a good tactic to begin with. We have a good message. We have a strong message; ie. freedom, self determination, government out of your life, and so on. I have never had a problem getting anyone to agree with my point of view, if political affiliation never comes into it.


The problem is the media, and I am afraid that is a fight we are always going to lose. It's very hard to have a meaningful discussion or debate when people see you as a monster right out of the gate, just because you are a Republican, or Conservative. Talk about prejudice.

Priebus needs to be gone for saying something that terminally ignorant.  Everybody knows how this will play out:  If this dogshit Repuke plan gets accepted it gives legal status to some worthless human trash heaps and then some dickhole judge, appointed by one of the RINO Bushes or Slick, will say that it's not fair that the leeches don't have citizenship and BOOM, there goes the country.  That's how it will go, idiot.



When I was growing up I'd encounter a number of bitter cranky old guys who'd say "don't trust any politicians" and I'd think how fucked up that was and I would never be that pessimistic.  Thanks to the current crop of turds in the toilet called the GOP that's exactly how I feel.

122 Maybe I'm wrong here, but it never seemed to me that that was a good tactic to begin with. We have a good message. We have a strong message; ie. freedom, self determination, government out of your life, and so on. I have never had a problem getting anyone to agree with my point of view, if political affiliation never comes into it.
The problem is the media, and I am afraid that is a fight we are always going to lose. It's very hard to have a meaningful discussion or debate when people see you as a monster right out of the gate, just because you are a Republican, or Conservative. Talk about prejudice.

--

Very well said.  I've always been befuddled at how we can miss the boat on reaching the vast majority of people.  Don't people inherently long to be free?  If you dig down deep into your soul, isn't that the likely feeling among human beings?  Freedom, independence, the sky's the limit possibilities?  Aside from the fact that I know there are still plenty of weak-minded who want to be taken care of, I'd think the other aspirations are just automatically ingrained in the human psyche.  The message of conservatism is strong, appealing and a natural inclination for the human condition.  What has destroyed that over the decades in America is 1) public education and 2) the media.  If we don't find a way around that, or infiltrate it in a significant manner, the future is not pretty.

128 Today's beautiful hymn-"O Splendor of God's Glory Bright" The words are by Ambrose of Milan, who was born between 337 and 340 and became a Bishop in the Church: "Ambrose is ranked with the great Western Christian leaders of the time: Augustine, St. Jerome, St. Gregory the Great, and St. Hilary of Poitiers. Ambrose was most known for his administrative talents, given his education and early experience before becoming a bishop. Yet, like Hilary he was an Alexandrian and was in the forefront in the doctrinal issues of the day, particularly those concerning Arianism. His sermons were famous and were influential in the conversion of Augustine. His endeavors in hymn writing became models of hymns of dignified simplicity for future times. Ambrose is credited with introducing antiphonal chanting wherein one choir alternates with another. Of particular note is that Ambrose baptized Augustine, his celebrated convert." Hymn from an English music festival: http://tinyurl.com/k65535w Fourth verse fro the hymn: "Dawn's glory gilds the earth and skies; Do Thou, our perfect Morn arise; The Father's help his children claim, and sing the Fathers glorious name."

And what is my nature, boundless love? It is fire, because you are nothing but a fire of love. And you have given humankind a share in this nature, for by the fire of love you created us. And so with all other people and every created thing; you made them out of love. O ungrateful people! What nature has your God given you? His very own nature! Are you not ashamed to cut yourself off from such a noble thing through the guilt of deadly sin? O eternal Trinity, my sweet love! You, light, give us light. You, wisdom, give us wisdom. You, supreme strength, strengthen us. Today, eternal God, let our cloud be dissipated so that we may perfectly know and follow your Truth in truth, with a free and simple heart. God, come to our assistance! Lord, make haste to help us! Amen.

First caller in says that's because the private insurance companies are ripping them off, they need to get some of that ObamaCare! His daughter is a pharmacy student and pays $5/mo! Of course, she's being subsidized by these same people who've seen their rates go up precisely BECAUSE they're paying for her, too. And ObamaCare IS the private system under gummint control, but he doesn't seem to understand that.

161 "But the New Breed of Conservative Castrati are too friggin' timid to stand up to tyranny...." ================================ It's way worse than that. They're scared of sounding ideological, even a little bit. The GOP leadership is willing to whine now about ZeroCare because a solid majority hates it, but they aren't willing to advocate repeal because the polling is mixed. The leadership have no principles, and no core beliefs, only poll-tested rhetorical gambits. "Standing up to tyranny" is way far away.

Yes, I in fact DO live in MA right now, but even here there is no law mandating that one adopts every lousy local trait when they get here. The number of people who share my views in this state is probably in the high single digits.

Based on my beliefs, I would consider Poppin' Fresh and his ilk as worthless fucksticks if my residence was in MA, CA, WA or Texas.

Geeze Gabe how on EARTH am I supposed to figure out who is the "ghey voice" in THAT line-up? I still stand by my suggestion that you all vocally identify yourselves at the beginning of each AoSHQ pod-cast for new listeners. I mean, yeah sure, Drew M. is the more high pitched nasal dude who honestly, ALWAYS sounds like he's phoning it in via two tin cans and a string, from a basement, where one of the Saw movies could have been filmed. I would be happy if John Eeek!dahl could plausibly pronounce something topical, in the news, in a way we never thought to read it. (Like names, or chemicals or... "mathematical formulae" at the very least!). I suppose that Andy just has to drawl... By process of elimination, the guy who doesn't sound embarrassed as hell and like he's got a Tom Baker, Dr. Who scarf wrapped 3 times around his mouth is probably the guest. See? I'm learnin'! Actually, you are a very good host Gabe and I am never in doubt about who the guests are.

Posted by: Carol at January 31, 2014 07:08 AM (z4WKX) Curious. Levin has been rather vocal in dismissing Beck as a sideshow clown, a "backbencher," in Levin's words. I'm surprised to see Levin wanting onboard with such an enterprise. ....Is Beck going to do more of his "dividing the country?" Cuz, you know, silly me, I was under the impression that he was serious when he said, to paraphrase, that we are in a struggle for our Republic and possibly our very lives. But now I find out that Beck is ashamed of his rhetoric, and thinks that he was tearing the country apart. ....So, we're NOT supposed to fight the Left anymore? We're supposed to make buddy-buddy, all's well that ends well then? This hippy bullshit is an absolute crock. Either Beck takes this fight seriously, or he doesn't. But if he doesn't, then he needs to stop wasting everyone's fucking time. I respect the man for beating his substance addiction problems, but if he's going to keep yanking my chain, I'm done with him.

241 I've debated buying a Blu Ray player . . . is there a BIG difference in picture ? Posted by: McCool at January 31, 2014 08:55 AM (nCSwS) +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Blu-Ray players have gotten cheap. The difference in picture quality is not huge, but it's there. Plus, most upconvert DVD video to 1080P. The big gain to me is the improvement in audio quality. Blu-Rays have an uncompressed audio stream that is a big improvement over the DVD. This may or may not be important to you.

With the GOP establishment leadership currently in place, we might as well have Jeb Bush as the Republican candidate.  Better yet, since he is relatively young, he can be endlessly recycled for the next six election cycles until it really is his turn!

Who cares about the RNC expanding digital operations, how about Reince and the gang expanding operations to  actual conservatives?

246 Carol I read it, and to me it reads as the police won't say anything other than they don't need more info from cooth.  It tells us jack sh*t in terms of what is actually going on.

249 CC, what about Cthulhu saying he’s just numb? I hope that Joffen is fine. I don’t really know him. I do have Shredded Chi’s email address. Do you want me to email him? But it didn’t look like he was around for that part of the ONT. He had talked to him earlier.

250 cthulhu's comment,  to me,  more likely reflects that he expended a ton of emotional energy and has nothing to show for it, not even a resolution.

251 At the last HS reunion I attended, heard about two of my small graduating class who had killed themselves, and both were the nicest folks in a sea of us creepy teenagers. Why them, and mean and miserable folk like me just go on living like I've got a right to! Of course, every time I even imagine contemplating it, I remember reading that, in out spiritual development, in the next life we pick up pretty much where we left off in this one, which always made sense to me. And this life or the next, the most important time & place is where & when you are right now, so, that keeps me from thinking I could improve a situation by doing myself in. :/ Never ever think it's a better way out.

253 When I take over the government with a bloodless coup, I will have a flat tax, of course. But with a twist; your flat tax rate is based on earnings to date. When you're young, you pay next to nothing. You get to keep the fruits of your labor. You discover that working is good. Over time and accumulated earnings your flat tax rate rises to a max of say 40%. Hit the lottery when you're young? You're screwed forever. Posted by: Regular Moron at January 31, 2014 07:55 AM (oGrEy) Someone else has probably pointed this out, but that's not a flat tax. I think what you're saying is that you'll eliminate all deductions, which is a fine idea, but that doesn't make a flat tax.

Ya--I'm not seeing anything as "confirmation". Unless Cthulhu said more to other people via email? It's getting changed this morning to people say the police found a body--but I am not seeing where Cthulhu says that in the thread.
