You might want to change that headline to “Friday Open Thread.”
UN Peacekeepers: Because the little girls won’t prostitute themselves.
Confusing, isn’t it?
Their track record with little boys is no better.
Rufus, now that was pedantic!
I can’t seem to change it. My phone app says “Friday” but for some reason it says Thursday on thevweb version.
I’m out of pocket so if any of the others with access can do the honor and fix it, I’d be much obliged.
I tried to fix it. Mine still says Thursday, did your fix take?
It’s OK now. We are satisfied.
Speak for yourself! I’m still thirsty.
Speak for yourself — I was on the outside of the castle walls all morning!
The moat tastes terrible, BTW.
My phone couldn’t load it either. These interwebs is confusing.
I was here earlier. It said Friday was Thursday, so I went back to bed.
I then proceeded to have a nightmare which included a rented house, a family reunion, and violent German tourists.
I’m not really sure why I came back to tell you this.
The rest of the day is going to be a doozy, I’ll bet, but I’m hoping for “tame by comparison.”
“A dream is a wish your heart makes.”
Have you considered counseling? More or less sleep, maybe? Oof! Doze Germans!
Why they have to be violent German’s?
Violent, maybe, but possessive? I think not!
Violent German tourists?? Mmmm. Dr. Freud would be intrigued. Unless he was one of the tourists (people confuse Germans and Austrians all the time).
Austria’s greatest trick was convincing the world that Hitler was German and Beethoven was Austrian.
(people confuse Germans and Austrians all the time).
We Germans don’t!
Actually, my ancestors are from Luxembourg.
I haf no idea vy tey vere German.
Perhaps because I watched an episode of PBS’ Nazi Mega Weapons the other night?
But why did the rental house have a museum exhibit (glass cases) of primitive weapons? The krauts broke the glass and we all tried to run… I woke up.
Weapons or torture devices?
Sounds like an episode of Fawlty Towers.
“Hors D’oeuvres which must be obeyed!”
I’m a slave to stuffed mushrooms myself.
I dry ‘em and smoke ‘em!

NBA legend Charles Barkley appeared on CNBC’s Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo Thursday afternoon and shared his incredibly diplomatic views on George Zimmerman‘s acquittal. “I agree with the verdict,” Barkley told Bartiromo. “I’m sorry that young kid got killed, but they didn’t have enough evidence to charge him.”
Barkley admitted that he did see some “racial profiling” in the case, but said “something happened that changed the dynamic that night.” He recognized what he was saying was “probably not a popular opinion among most people,” but “looking at the evidence” he said he agreed with the jury’s decision.
He also called out the media for not having a “pure heart” when it comes to race. “Racism is wrong in any, shape or form,” Barkley said. “A lot of black people are racist too. I think sometimes when people talk about racism, they say only white people are racist, but I think black people are too. I don’t think the media has clean hands.”
Despite Zimmerman’s “racial profiling,” in Barkley’s assessment, “Trayvon Martin, God rest his soul, he did flip the switch and start beating the hell out of Mr. Zimmerman.” He added that he “feels bad” that the trial gave “every white person and black person who is racist the platform to vent their ignorance. That’s the thing that bothered me the most. I watched this trial closely. I watched these people on television talking about it. A lot of these people have a hidden agenda. They want to have their racist views, whether they are white or black… They’re biases come out.”
Yes, but he harps on “the racial profiling” as if it were a negative in these circumstances. It was not in this case. Toots who looked just like Ubama’s son were suspects in recent home burglaries. I am thankful that there are still men willing to get out of the car.
But Sir Charles is lucid otherwise.
Toots = yoots (Is there a way to disable the derned auto correct on my phone other than by throwing it out the window … into the bay … or under the train track?)
Floyd meant to write “thirsty,” always the state of being the morning after Wankette’s birthday.
I have not been using my new HP with Windows 8, truth be told; I’ve been doing most of my Threedonian on my cell phone which is a pain ‘cuz i hate to wait for the youtubes to load (I’ll watch the one you linked when I get home ‘cuz I don’t like to youtube at work because, well, you know, because work.
But I do like your picking up on my “toot” from my previous post about Sir Charles with your “fart” metaphore.
Welcome, TCR! You have been missed! In honor of your return, the coffee, krullers and leftover crumbs are on me!
In Nevada, hard hitting news, Liberace’s boy toy, Scott Thorsen was sentenced, in Reno (that’s upstate and liberal) to probation for credit card fraud. He was a boy when Liberace was with him. Thorsen is now 53…an old guy like Scott M.!
Better watch those Skittles at work,folks!(I happen to like Skittles).
I had about an hour earlier when I could not get 3D to come up. My trouble shooter said 3D was online but not responding. That’s been happening quite a bit of late. Sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. It doesn’t matter which browser I use, either. Does it on both.
Yep, me three. Someone needs to hit the tip jar, or something!
Me first. I’ll be having a nice Amazonia purchase forthcoming for the cause.
Not much lately actually. I dropped a backup server that hackers kept attacking and we suffered by proxy.
I’m watching a program on Military Channel right now about when Hitler started showing his crackpot ways. Nearly from the start, the conservative, God fearing German citizens, of which there were quite a few, said that they did not like what he was doing to Germany, but “there is no one who will speak against him!”
Big, fat parallel to this IIC we have in the White House! No one to stand up to him and tell him that nearly all he does is damaging to America! Just about all the politicians right and left are so busy pursing their lips for the big kiss, they have ALL lost their vision! If any of them still had and stones, they’d put him on trial for the multitude of violations of the Constitution he has made, and remember their own oaths of office to uphold that Constitution! Sadly, there may not be more than a few who can even remember the wording of that oath!
“still had and stones”…”any stones”
” Just about all the politicians right and left are so busy pursing their lips for the big kiss, they have ALL lost their vision!”
Are you referring to the dogging of his administration over Fast and Furious? Or the endless hearings we’ve had over Benghazi? Or maybe its the way they made his gun bill Dead On Arrival?
Or Boehner playing a game of chicken against Obama over Sequestration? And winning.
Or the God knows how many times they GOP-ruled House has voted to repeal Obamacare?
Were those examples of “pursing their lips”?
I’m not knocking them all, and they are trying to a degree, but Holder is still not talking and all that you mentioned is still on “stall” for various reasons. The only reason the anti-gun bill didn’t make it through the Senate is because, even though Reid voted “for” it, his general attitude is for the 2nd Amendment. I hate to give the guy any credit, but he’s well known in Nevada as pro-gun!
I think there are many points upon which to impeach Obama even now, but they won’t touch it with a 10 foot pole. Fear would be the reason is my guess!
Everytime something else like Trayvon happens, Bengazi and F&F fall that much further from the public’s outrage! It’s all a shell game to keep everybody distracted. And the House can vote Obamacare dead all it wants to, but if the Senate and the SCOTUS don’t cooperate, we have what we have!
I’m just trying to tell everyone, it ain’t as bad as you think.
By the way, I’m actually kind of happy Obamacare is going into effect -for political reasons.
The Obama admin and the Dems really, pardon my foul language, “f–ked up” on that one.
They can’t even socialize healthcare right! All they did was make healthcare more expensive.
Maybe not as bad as we think, but Obama is sure no Ronald Reagan, or even a G.W. Bush!
Well, no s–t.
For the first time in my 67 years and living through the Korean, Vietnam, Gulf and Iraqi/Afghanistan and 9/11 wars, etc. This is literally the first time I’ve ever been more afraid of our own government more than I am of the other guy’s government!
And I’ll admit, I may have overreacted a bit. But my point remains, Obamacare is a disaster and the Dems seem to know.
I did hear that it looks like the whole thing may be delayed another year.
2 solid hours of the loudest thunder, the brightest lightning and the sideways rain you get when the wind is blowing up to 70 miles per hour. 2 inches of that as well! Water in the patio doors and leaking around the kitchen skylight! It never leaks so it must have been pushed under the bottom flashing by the horrific winds. The monsoons are definitely here. It’s working it’s way down I-15 and should be in California by now, moving SW from Vegas! Happy canoeing!
