Good movie. Very chilling. Most of the information would already be known to people like us though.

I especially liked how he used audio clips from BHO’s own book to make the points.

Can we count on the GOP to vouchsafe our already inalienable rights?

Todd Akin managed to light the havoc fuse when he refused to vouchsafe a withdrawal from the Missouri senate race. We republicans need to have focus and figure out a way to win the Senate, and the Presidency, with or without the Show-Me State.

Of course, kangaroos — and marsupials generally — have a pouchsafe instead.

These Republican women who vouchsafed for Obama are actually Democrats.

We can, but we'll end up disappointed.

A+++ because there really ARE no republicans who would become obamabots this time. unless you count the FR purist, who are defacto for Obama.

My original tagline was:

"Zerobama -- a phony and a prick, therefore a dildo."

(repeated for purposes of historical accuracy only)

Audience for the Saturday evening show was much smaller than I expected. It was an older crowd.

The only loud reaction at the end was some young? guy mentioning voting Libertarian.

xsbaby worked the PAKISTAN festival yesterday out in Manassas, VA, with the Fairfax Co Republicans, with a Romney/Ryan, Allen, Wolf, Perkins etc. booth. George Allen was there, i guess wearing his hairshirt for the macaca moment. xshub had us roaring when he came back from picking her up, said that he’d passed the Sharia law booth, where you could 3 chances to stone a woman for $5, and the IED building booth,etc. So i told my SIL this and her reaction was OMG, that’s wild! she totally believed it.

More than 2 years, had all sorts of laughs and good comments about it, then suddenly a mod mentioned to me a "complaint", undescribed and unidentified (of course).

I never knew until then that FR allowed the "heckler's veto". However, it's Jim's site and his rules must prevail.

Vouchsafe

Saw a vouch safe selling on late nite t.v. for three easy payments of $19.95 (a value of over $100 not even counting the lifetime spud peeler and nose hair trimmer!).

A vouch safe goes under the cushions of the couch where the dog normally sleeps unless James R. is home on parole.

It’s just a metal lock box fitted into the springs and 2x4’s holding the couch up and nobody in their right mind would reach under a hound what foams at the mouth like Ol’ Scabby does.

Now you ask, I knew you would, why not “couch safe”? Good question... wellll c and v are real close togather ont the board and sometimes Milo has a way too much CV for breakfast to tell one from the other and couch safe turns into vouch safe.
There it is more or less as found in the Atkinsonville Daily Glob.

Well, I'm fond of wordplay (as you certainly know by now), and that comment seemed just a 'natural'.

But, "naturally not", I suppose (mutter, grumble...).

so no applause? someone behind us in the theater started to clap, so my family enthusiastically applauded. it was probably my friend Brigid and her husband, as we saw them as we left the theater, coming out behind us!

This Saturday BBC America is running an all-day Doctor Who marathon. Showing the entire previous season and then, at 9 PM, the new season begins.

So, my mission this week is to see if I can watch the remaining ten episodes I haven’t watched yet before Saturday night.
