Did any of you Catch Col. Hunt on Fox last night blasting Newsweek..........I am really surprised he maintained enough composure to not use and forbidden words on the air. He was absolutely outrage.

no, i was engrossed in Stuck in the Suburbs on the Disney channel. xsbrownie went upstairs for her bath, the remote was across the room from me and i was stitching away, not even noticing that i was the only one in the room watching this teenybopperish show when xshub walked into the room and said ARE YOU WATCHING THIS...?

Isn't this a Friday sort of word? That runaway bride link: ick. Issues does not even begin to describe that woman. Seriesly, I knew a girl in college who was dating a guy from a different college, and he sort of "bragged" (who talks about this stuff, anyway) about their "pure" relationship and how they prayed together and stuff. Meanwhile, she was working her way up and down the guys' dorm hallways. Very skanky. Very Wilbanks.

The licentious days of my youth are now gone. Leaving towels on the floor is about as wanton as I get these days.

wet towels? you want to hear what puts a strain on a marriage? xshub invited a family over to dinner at our house on Sat PM, behind my back, while i was out doing errands. he had never in his life done anything like it. i was so incredulous that all i could do was laugh.

Which reminds me - why do we clean the kitchen before a party? The only people that are going to see it clean are the first few to show up.

A side note. You may have noticed that I enjoy wordsmithing.

Last night I was watching Fox Magazine hosted by Laurie Dhue. After her intro of the stories to be covered she concluded the intro with, "..without further adieu..." That was an interestng choice of words and I wonder whether that was a purposeful double entente!

Nah, no reason to shoot you.

Speaking of which - I've got to go clean my office. I've got so many papers and whatnot from school all over. Apparently, the missus isn't buying my contention that the piles are all systematically organized.

If life is a series of balances, good and bad, wealth and poverty, etc., then this was the weekend of near debauchery without the charges being filed. :)

i am sure it is because i don't live somewhere in a border state and so it doesn't affect my life terribly, that i can't get overwrought over it.

The licentiousness of the federal government regarding illegal immigration apparently knows no bounds. Pretty soon illegals will have 100% of the benefits of being an American citizen and none of the disadvantages. They don't have to pay income taxes, are not going to be bothered with jury duty, and even if the democrats reinstate the draft, no problemo!
On the other hand, universal free healthcare for you and your entire family costs zero, zilch, nada. If this keeps up, many native Americans (not Indians--just everyday Americans who were born here) will renounce their citizenship, move to Mexico and then sneak back across the border to enjoy the hospitality.

Apparently, I practiced my own form of licentiousness by copying dubya's homework. Two more acts of plagiarism will qualify me as a democrat. Six more will get me published.

well clearly it is a growing concern, nationwide, foxnews is paying a lot of attention to it, though the MSM undoubtedly is not. since i don't even glance at MSM, i can't say for sure.

Better be careful trying that. The Mexicans actually enforce their border laws.

Good Morning!

I thought maybe you were trying to lure me back in here by getting me to talk about my work.

I could have used "Licentious!" as an alternate title.

Good Morning, xs, and Group,

Last night, I was quietly watching TV, and not in FReeping mode, or political mode, even though tomorrow is PA Peimary, when suddenly, the show is interupted by a licencious ad by the RINO Arlen Specter by some group of which I never heard of stating that "right wing fanatics want to stop the filibuster, etc etc".....

The quietly watching TV stopped, and I began screaming at the toob.. (OPNOTE: this does no real good, accomplishes absolutely nothing, but does vent comments :*^(^^* RINO, ""LIBERAL" "&^*^&^*")...... took me a while to calm down...(mrsgwmoore and girchild were "gently" telling me about my "volume", and using the excuse of gunfire/turbine engine caused partial deafness does not hold water LOL)....

Anyhow, I have no idea who made this licencious ad, or who is promoting it. All I know is that this idiot is at his tricks once again. I wonder how "Scottish Law" fits into the reasoning this time. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

We have enough problems in PA now with the idjit "Pubs for Rendell" without this other group (I went balistic too fast to even get the name at the end) supporting "Our Man Arlen". I have NO idea what path he is traveling, but it sure isn't the one I support... Presumably, the ad will run again, and I will not go from 0 to rabid in .01 usec, which, I did last night, and I will see just what org is promoting this garbage, and calmly be able to pull their website up (I presume they do have one)... All I know, is that the ad was very, very licencious to me, a very poor way to relax on a Sunday evening ;-)

Greg

I went down to the License Bureau to get properly permitted for my licentiousness, but all they had was a poetic license (I took it. Who knew the State of Maryland had a quota for debauchery?)

I couldn't even get the one that lets you be "legally drunk."
