up and at it! the early bird catches the worm and all that stuff!
we are in a thunder storm here.......
Liberals sure are sedulous in their efforts to turn the USA into a third world country.
I’m sedulously trying to improve my vocabulary...
The Iranian ambassador sedulously devoured the hot-dogs.
Michale Jackson will no longer be sedulously chasing 8 year old boys. I heard he died from choking on an 8 year old weiner.
that they are......
welcome to your first Commando FRiday!
an A for you
watch for xs’s homework...or Neocaveman’s. If you ad a link to a news story and your homework relates to a current event you can get +++s after your A.
I went to bed early too, ti. When I woke up, VH-1 was running non-stop MJ videos. Old ones, some featuring Janet Jackson before she got plastic surgery. Fox News wasn’t much better. All MJ.
I spent the pre-dawn morning vacuuming up dog hair instead.
mmm, he did, huh?
I read for about half an hour and crashed. that bore-athon was awful. hubby and I swore shep must have had a man crush on MJ.
Entertainment Tonight and Inside Edition obviously were put to bed prior to the announcement of MJ -— both shows were almost entirely devoted Farrah Fawcett, no mention whatsoever of the other.
KING? of pop???????? more like the QUEEN of pop if you asked me!
oh my GOD< he was in full on bawl last night. Poor Bret Baer was usurped by Shemp’s sobbing coverage, and he went on right through Oreilly’s hour til Jerry Rivers took over at 9pm and i think Shemp was back on at midnight. good grief.
He had some great music back in the day and he looked relatively NORMAL at that point and hadn’t degenerated into the ridiculous freak that he ended up. he actually looked like a black MALE back then, instead of the white woman he was when he died.
Good! Farrah deserved the limelight......at least she died fighting cancer. I am not sure I want to know what brought on MJ’s death.
I figure BORe and Hannity needed a night off anyway......I am sure they did not sit sobbing in front of Fox saying ......”sing it shep!”
i figure we are going to hear it’s an anna nicole type Rx drug type situation
F&F had Casey Stegall on at 2 am LA time and he looked bored. I know Casey’s dad. He lives and works locally. He used to be a demolition man.
you have to wonder how they feel about the preemption. Mr O’s ego can’t be happy with the all shemp all the time turn of events. he normally takes fridays off in the summer anyway, so he would have been off tonight.
Excellent homework, xs!
hh.......now THIS is a homework assignment that deserves recognition!
i saw him this AM on F&F before 5 am LA time and recalled that you knew him or someone related to him. i think he’s cute. the girls fave is Phil Keating, the surfer dude.
I saw something somewhere already referring to a perscription...
If a Republican was still in the White House, there would be reports that MJ was offed to divert attention from Sanford, just like the Kennedys had Marilyn Monroe offed to divert attention from the buildup in SE Asia.
An Emergency Room source at UCLA hospital said Jackson aides told medics he had collapsed after an injection of potent Demerol similar to morphine.
A Jacko source said: Shortly after taking the Demerol he started to experience slow shallow breathing.
His breathing gradually got slower and slower until it stopped.
His staff started mouth-to-mouth and an ambulance was called which got there in eight minutes But found he was in full respiratory arrest, no breathing and no pulse. They started full CPR and rushed him to hospital.
Mmmm, tastes perfect!
is 8 min a respectable response time? wonder if they called for the amb promptly? the fact that he had really not done much to prepare for this mega tour coming up in London, almost seems to me like he knew he wouldn’t be performing there and was looking for a back door out of it. i think he found one.
MJ the POST-RACIAL performer. surely our post-racial president has commented on his passing by now?
we are volunteers coming from home.....if we are not in route within ten minutes they will tone out another agency. usually we are in route in less. I live about a four minute drive. we then have to travel to the scene.
I am sure they called a professional agency though, and it might have been 8 minutes away.
saw footage of the argentinian honey on F&F this AM. apparently she was a reporter at some point. not even remotely worth what he caused to pursue her, IMO. not that ANYONE would have been, but she is very def not “all that” even without the bag of chips.
right, that makes sense. traffic adds on to response time even if you are close, i know here it does for sure.
that’s what I thought from her pic, no fool like an old fool.
sometimes the lights and sirens just create a traffic jam instead of clearing the way....it is not an unseemly amount of time from my perspective.
he’s only 49, not nearly old enough to be that much of an old fool! LOL! and i am astounded that i am only 2 years older than MJ, i never considered him a contemporary.
Haven’t these cretins heard of NARCAN? Sounds like BS to me. There was supposedly his personal physician right there.
I guess his skin looks older from the hot summer son in SC.........up here in the north we don’t have such a problem.
So they can cover Farrah and Micheal Jackson’s deaths ..... But it is insedulous how little they cover the facts behaind so-called the 1200 page 1.3 trillion dollar tax-and trade boondoggle.
Hmmmn. One billion dollars per page - for a law that nobody’s read?
I wondered about that.......glad to hear you agree. although they might have tried it.
My SIL said the same thing, that it would have required Narcan to reverse it and that the MD was right there suppoedly.
Worth a drive cross town, but not much further than that.
yes, he does look very leathery.
8 minutes is a very respectable response time.
I doubt there is any one person who reads these things. I cannot believe these politicos.......they are killing us with debt and don’t even read the bills. makes me sick.
I finally pulled out a dvd (Mr Brooks) to watch after the sedulous coverage became unenduring.
