Hysterical! “Obergropinfuhrer.” I dated him once. Once.
(That’s a pretty good article, Loyal. Maybe Floyd will give it its own post in a few days. But remember: it’s the intrinsic reward that is the most valuable.)
Brow beating isn’t an emoticon, is it?
Not that I’m aware of or I’d be using it. \’}
Hey, since you’re here, Loyal, I’ve been wanting to discuss Halal/Kosher animal slaughter vs. stunning. Do you eat from your herd or know anything about these techniques? I’ve been reading up but would really appreciate your opinion. What say you?
I have read on the subject and talked with various folks about it. Two goats have been slaughtered on my farm, the first was slaughtered by some gentlemen from Ghana. They were not muslim and certainly not jewish, but they did do the live throat cut, unstunned. Ghastly! I thought. The goats name was buddy and he looked right at me as he left this world. It was over in about a minute. The Ghanans like their goat with the skin on and built a fire to singe the fur off and proceeded to take evrything with them, with the exception of the empty skull and the last 6 inches and exit of the digestive system. I mean everything, they carefully emptied the contents of all the organs, the eyeballs, the inside meat from his horns, brains, lungs, everything. It was most interesting. I slaughtered the other last year for a mexican friend who simply wanted the carcass, my dogs ate well that week! i shot him between the eyes with my .38 pistol, his head was down in a feed bucket, he never knew what happened.
My understanding is that kosher/halal slaughter animals may not be stunned. And I do not know of anyone stunning before killing. Both methods are horrible because they are fine animals, but God didn’t intend them to die of old age. So, want goat carcass meat either way is fine to me. But blood is bad and must be removed quickly and nothing beats the animals dying heart for emptying that very quickly.
Not for the squeemish in either case! Do the animals feel pain? Yes they do, but so do the butchers. To minimize our pain, we minimize theirs. Go to God, good and faithful servant! Allahu akbar! JEHOVAH-JIREH!
I can’t thank you enough for your response. This very interesting woman has spent her career advocating for the humane treatment of animals and supports the Halal/Kosher methods as being the most humane when properly executed.
I buy 100% grass fed beef & bison and have found a Halal supplier in Riverside County. I think I’ll try it.
Thanks again for your testimony.
Loved the HBO movie on her………..
How is it the 21st and I have no place to mock old age?
You may mock me ‘cuz I don’t have a clue what-in-the-H3-double-hockey-sticks you’re talking about.
I know better than to mock you. I don’t know if you know where I sleep or not.
Don’t worry! I’m harmless. You enjoy sleeping with one eye always open anyway don’t you?
Oh. It’s Eric’s birthday. Duh me.
Look in the mirror, Doc?
Just a joke!
I try not to this soon after eating.
Mock away. I’m going back to bed to hopefully kick this flu in the head, back and ass. Yuck.
Get better soon, EP!
The Only inaugural coverage I will see, thank you kindly. Be warned it is NYT’s opinion, I feel icky, but I appreciated the liberal honesty of it. The points are debatable of course. The last I checked Sandra Fluke didn’t need Rush’s help to be a slut, just some of his money. And so on. Put you rubber pants on and wade right in, the water (sewage) is fine!
And turn the channel!
I saw Zero Dark Thirty last night. Movie previews included the new Star Trek and Superman movies filled with violent images and big heroes. Then the feature film came on and I saw the real thing, the real heroes. Stuart Varney commented on his seeing Zero and the violent trailers on his show this morning in context of his gun control discussion. Similar but different.
Zero was very good, maybe a little too “girl powerey,” but I don’t know how much creative license was employed to make the story. Maybe Maya was portrayed dead on. I’ll have to read up on it. But I do have a girl crush on Kathryn Bigelow that is held in abeyance until I see The Hurt Locker again. When I first saw that one, I didn’t think it was anti-military but since others whose opinion I respect think otherwise, I’ll give it another look. I don’t think that being a crazy MF and being a hero are necessarily contradictory, btw.
What do the Threedonia movie gurus think of THL?
Also, what is everyone doing today to avoid the ignorantauguration?
In the book No Easy Day about the hunt for bin Laden the author credited said female with doing a lot of the leg work to identify him.
Yah, I have heard she was an integral part of the search, but when you see the movie, you’ll know what I mean. (No spoilers for me. I learned my bat-lesson on that.)
To be clear… I dislike the President for the (lack) of content of his character not the color of his skin.
MLK… I fought for THIS?
I just found out that The Price is Right has been preempted. Now I’m really p!ssed.
With malice towards many and charity for none…
Awesome trivia to help keep your mind off the coronation:
Brian Cox stars in two films with the same name. I watched the 2008 one yesterday, thinking it was going to be the prequel to Red2.
I’m probably in the minority, but I prefer the 2008 version. It’s a solid little revenge drama/thriller, and Cox is outstanding in the lead. The big-budget 2010 movie was a major disappointment (despite the inherent awesomeness of Willis and Malkovich), a goofy Bourne wannabe with lots and lots of liberal sucker punches. I really hope the sequel’s better.
This is a favorite revenge flick of mine. Tom Wilkinson and Cox are in my current top 25 fer sure.
From the Russian immigrant, creator of the people’s cube, a thoughtful piece: Part 1: Demonizing the Non-Compliant I’m looking forward to the rest of the series. Good stuff for coronation day diversion.
Speaking of which, kids 2,3,4 have been born, the forcast shows a tuesday night low of 12F, I’m gonna be busy improving the goat house the rest of the day. Be back tonight.
OK! We’ll try to leave some of our witty comments for you to make. It won’t be easy.
We will expect two new lawyer jokes upon your return LGH!
Question: Why are lawyers like nuclear weapons?
Answer: If one side has one, the other side has to get one. Once launched during a campaign, they can rarely be recalled. When they land, they screw up everything forever.
Question: How many lawyers can you place on the point of a needle?
Answer: Ten, if you stand them on their heads.
Lawyer’s mother: “My son is a brilliant attorney. He can look at a contract and instantly tell you whether it’s verbal or written.”
“For certain people, after fifty, litigation takes the place of sex.” –Gore Vidal
The link works now. I don’t know what the problem was earlier. Thanks!
Floyd, I want you to know that I hardly laughed at all at any of these despicable jokes.
Being Floyd’s favorite does not come easy; therefore, I would never tell a joke like this one:
Q: What do you call 25 skydiving lawyers?
All the news that’s fit to print straight to you from Moskva!
Coffee, krullers, and the Women of Threedonia! How much better could it get?!
This is my final attempt at retrieval. After my inadvertant, unfortunate dropping of a simple “r” yesterday, I felt as though all was lost. But I say, “Nay, nay! I shall try again!”
Speaking for myself, all is forgiven (but never forgotten, of course )
Oh, but of course!
I ran to get some breakfast… did I miss anything on TV?
I’m watching The $25,00 Pyramid reruns hosted by Dick Clark while vacuuming my rugs. Same ole, same ole.
Am I the only one who noticed the absence of Gisele Brady at the game yesterday. Because she has a new baby, ya think?
All the major news channels are paying tribute to Barnum & Bailey.
Hawaii Five-O rerun.
Ok, who watched DOWNTON ABBEY last night?
No. I went to the movies.
I’ll fess up… I watch it. Damn that Wanks, she got me hooked. It’s a soap opera sure, but what a great setting.
There was a possible conservative message, there with Matthew realizing that Lord Grantham’s business practices, though compassionate, are running the place into the ground.
He even asks what good it will do for anyone if Downton Abbey goes bankrupt.
The ending scene between him and the Countess Dowager is quite good.
“The last guy nearly ruined this place
He didn’t know what to do with it
If you think this country’s bad off now
Just wait till I get through with it!”
“The country’s taxes must be fixed
And I know what to do with it
If you think you’re paying too much now
Just wait till I get throught with it!”
“If any form of pleasure is exhibited,
Report to me and it will be prohibited!
I’ll put my foot down!
So shall it be!
This is the land of the free!”
RIP Michael Winner, conservative British filmmaker who directed the Death Wish films and The Mechanic. Here’s a great quote from his IMDB page: “My sympathy is totally with the little old lady who gets bashed over the head with an iron bar, not with the youngster who did it and gets sent to the South of France for six weeks to turn into a lovely human being.”
I want to point out that he said this in response to a question by a reporter.
Maybe this will change Rufus’ opinion of the royals!
Not likely, the so called royal shooting down his equals with smug superiority. Pfft!
I would hope so, he flies an Apache. Otherwise he is wasting his and everyone’s time. People depend on those aircraft to be where they need to be when they need to be there…this isn’t some kind of a game where everybody gets to feel good about themselves.
A nice caller on the radio this afternoon reveled the One’s plan for zero unemployment. Just transition everyone onto the dole and voila! No one will be on the unemployment rolls ever again. Brilliant. As brilliant as a shiny, newly minted trillion dollar coin.
First, I watched the ig-nog-urination last week. My favorite part was when The One’s own father swore him in.
Second, I agree with everything that guy said. Let’s limit the First Amendment. Just how many newspapers does one need to wrap the garbage? Newspapers were invented in England for wrapping the greasy fish & chips. We are now against grease because Michelle, so we don’t need no NYT!!
