Ooh! More great legs, he said grovelling in a probably vain attempt to win back good graces!
Only if Ms. Tink thinks you’ve suffered enough (although I suspect you like to be spanked once in a while whether you need it or not. Am I right? )
Maybe one more day of groveling and he will be forgiven. MAYBE.
I don’t grovel…I beg and whimper!
Soooo, that’s what you’re supposed to do in libraries …. who knew?
. . . the first shall be last.
We never had 20+ year old dudes in my high school. I guess that’s why our football team was pretty bad.
Are you accusing Buddy Revelle of violating UIL age requirements? He does look to be about 30 there.
Earl Weaver has died at age 82. RIP. I’ll let Eric do the full post as I’m sure he’s got some stories.
An all time great.Always fun to watch him get tossed out.
We had a kid in our high school that was 20 when he graduated with our class. He’d been a senior for three years, and finally made it. Not a sports player, and that was in the days before special ed.
Each looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible, and pray to the same God; and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces; but let us judge not that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered; that of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes. “Woe unto the world because of offenses! for it must needs be that offenses come; but woe to that man by whom the offense cometh!” If we shall suppose that American Slavery is one of those offenses which, in the providence of God, must needs come, but which, having continued through His appointed time, He now wills to remove, and that He gives to both North and South, this terrible war, as the woe due to those by whom the offense came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a Living God always ascribe to Him? Fondly do we hope — fervently do we pray — that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue, until all the wealth piled by the bond-man’s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash, shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said “the judgments of the Lord, are true and righteous altogether.”
With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan — to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.
Taxation is slavery, dare we hope anything spoken by the current occupant in his second inaugural address could inspire a divided nation to a re-birth of freedom? Nah, me neither! Where’s my pitchfork?
Wonderful words like these will never flow from pen nor mouth of the “occupant”! Sad too, that it’s that way, but ’tis what ’tis.
Hey, what’s with that “fervently do we pray” bid-ness? Didn’t our 16th know anything about the ACLU and mad Madalyn Murray O’Hair?
And you’ll have to recap the contents of its Monday coronation address for me; I have a terrible case of won’t-be-anywhere-near-it neck pain that day. Lights out.
He puts it in perspective, doesn’t he? Who gives a care about TeTe’s imaginary girlfriend (as if he’s the first guy to have an elaborate fantasy, sheesh). I know the answer: it’s the same Democrats who bleat a bit about their diminished paycheck’s gross and then cash it and spend it on the Kardashian news magazines. Who’s the baby daddy?
Who wrote the Presidential Oath of Office?Always found it to be admirably clear and succinct.
I’m going to look it up but first guess it was Washington. The freedom-from-religion guy was on O’Reilly last night, and I think it was said that Washington insisted God be part of it. “I’ll be back.”
US Constitution, Article II, Section 1:
Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–”I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
That’s it. The wording has changed, re-arranged and embellished, over the years, but the substance has been preserved.
Constitution was collaborative…James Madison,perhaps.
‘Xactly. Maybe Marcoe will do the research for us (or he has the answer in his brain already).
Robert E. Lee as well.Lee’s old Mexican War commander,General Winfield Scott,offered him the position of General In Chief of the US Army(Scott’s position),but Lee declined when Virginia left the Union.One of those what ifs of history.
Ironic irony that the South did, indeed, rise again to reject the Democrats and produce Rand Paul, Jindahl, Haley, et al.
“Spoke the Raven, ‘Nevermore.’” I guess it depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.
Love that movie,by the way….Jack Nicholson is in his 20s.
Shades of Mad Men…my granddad Mac was a Pall Mall man,about three packs a day.Hell,he still lived to be 80.
My Dad smoked Chesterfields. Quit at 76 and died at 89.
My mom’s 82…never took a puff!
My Mom smoked till she was 92 and live to nearly 97. She only quit because she was in the hospital for a cracked hip and by then they wouldn’t allow smoking in the patient rooms anymore and she couldn’t make it to the smoking lounge.
My grandmother quit when she was in her 80s. She still had coffee and played solitaire every morning though, just minus the cigs.
Of course then it was the Army Air Corps,not USAF.
Depends on what time frame you are talking about but from 1941 until 1947 it was called the US ARMY AIR FORCE.
I stand corrected.
Back, when they weren’t hanging out at the golf course all day.
They do have very nice officer’s clubs…I’ve ben thrown out of several.
Had nice bowling alleys too!
Humbly submitted for The Trailer Park: “Emperor”, a war drama about Gen. MacArthur (Tommy Lee Jones, great casting there) in post-WWII Tokyo, investigating whether the deposed Japanese Emperor should be charged with war crimes. Think “Judgement at Nuremberg” in Japan; the kind of war-era morality tale that Hollywood used to make so well, back when filmmakers cared about war, or morality.
As I recall,the US occupation headquarters in Tokyo was in the home of the Dai Ichi Insurance Company(Dai Ishi means Number One in Japanese).The Japanese were absolutely shocked that we did not come in and kill every last one of them…what they would have done to us.
I think you spoke to this before, JC. Anyway, I am interested to see whether this can stand up as well as JN does, considering today’s PC. It is a tale that should be told.
Thanks for the heads-up, JimmyC.
The movie is on my “must-see list” for this year.
It hits theaters on March 8.
Now I remember! Back in the day, one of the Threedonia fellers-in-charge posted this (I think it was Trzupek). It was Andy Samberg and The Lonely Island and I LMAO!!
NSFW or children
That was me of course… trzupek… Frau Blucher!!
I wonder what’s up with that ole Schwanstuker, once part of the glue that binds us. Neigh.
AP is reporting that the demonstration-against-a-mean-video-that-just-got-out-of-hand hostage crisis (Oops. Wrong demo. Whatever) is over. All the hostages have been slaughtered, which is not optimal, but at least it’s over.
So how’s that healer of the world State Department doin’? Pass the maracas.
“Come viz me to ze Casbah!”
So does anyone know what happened to Stephanie? I know we didn’t always get along, but I also know she had a parent die, and I don’t want her to feel like no one cares.
Tracy, the last time I saw her on was a short time after New Years, if memory serves. They had just gotten back to S. Korea after a visit to the States.
She still blogs on FB about politics daily. She doesn’t share much personal info, though.
I was wondering about her too. Maybe she is lurking and will give us an update?
She commented on something I put up on Facebook today, so she is still alive.
thanks for letting me know she’s still out there. I’m glad she’s still kicking.
Yea! Hockey is back on!
I’ve never watched a hockey game in my life. I might give a try since baseball is still so far off.
Pitchers and catchers report in just a month, Tink!
Opening day can’t come fast enough!
Neither can the Lonely Island guys. (I did not just say that).
