Both Barack Obama and John Kerry have accused Vladimir Putin of re-instituting the superannuated, failed policy of national conquest that was all the rage in the 19th century. To my eyes, the Russian approach seems more successful than the Rodney King “Can’t we all just get along?” non-approach favored by President Kumbaya and his minions.

I wish that they’d superannuate John Kerry for lecturing Putin yesterday for not following the “rules”. Was this the latest comedy sketch?

Who will we superannuate?
Dingell! Dingell!
Yea!

(And really, the wife is “Debbie Dingell.” I know, name recognition and all that, but if my name was “Debbie Dingell” I would go by my maiden name.)

Given the current Mayoralty, it would be less Communist, under Putin.

Seems to me the etymology isn't quite right ... it's missing the 'a' in "annuate", for starters.

There is a word: ( Lewis & Short at the Perseus Project )

B. Subst.: annŭum , i, and more freq. in the plur.: annŭa , ōrum, n., an annuity, annual stipend, pension: “publici servi annua accipiunt,”

... and can it be mere coincidence that a pension is involved ? "super" would be in the sense of "beyond" ... an extended pension.

It is pretty amazing. Fifty years ago, who could have predicted that the greatest country in the world would elect Barack Obama? Twice. And the greatest city in that country would elect Bill de Blasio.

Indeed! Orwell and Huxley understood the direction in which we were headed. As did Ayn Rand. And Hayek.

the left would consider it a superannuated ritual, but everyone can benefit from reflection on their lives, their mortality, and what they can do while they are on this earth.

The superannuated DC-3 at Peterborough. It once was a test bed for PZL engines. In the 1990s AirTech toyed with the idea of this DC-3 conversion, but the concept died, especially with the rise of the PT6-powered DC-3.

We went to Smokey Bones and I had pulled pork and a 1/4 BBQ chicken. Then stopped at McD’s for a Shamrock Shake.

Good morning! The primary in Texas yesterday showed that the Tea Party wants RINO David Dewhurst out badly enough to vote for an odd duck, Dan Patrick. They will go to a run off in May. But oddly enough, the Tea Party did NOT prevail in getting rid of Cornyn.

Ditto - I can’t imagine living in a home where a child thinks they are in charge. I hope the parents get a lot of support and that family who led the sueing of her parents get the bitch slap they deserve too!

It’s a chain. Pretty good, but a little pricey.

We do mystery shopping for them on occasion, so we had a lot of their “rewards” credits, plus a gift card, plus the coupon from the Sunday paper.

We ended up only having to pay the tip.

as one of the comments said, had the people who are housing her and financing the suit, used the $ to pay for her tuition instead, she would have been fine. i imagine she would have much better shot at student aid if she has no parental $ backing.

It is good. They have 4 different sauces on the table so you can select what you want.

I always get pulled pork cause it’s less messy and less work for me.

They have cinnamon apples as a side dish, too.

Yeah, and if people fighting voter ID just spent the money to get the poor “disenfranchised” people IDs, they would be done by now.

But that doesn’t further the cause.

My grandson is here:

http://www.envisionexperience.com/explore-our-programs/careers-in-national-security

Not only did this require 2 plane tickets from Aiken, SC, he had to bring 5 days worth of “professional clothing” to participate. And Dad had to take a week’s vacation from work. Grandson’s a sophomore in HS.

This is the National Youth Leadership Forum for Careers in National Security, Intelligence, & Defense. And it’s held at the Pentagon which is why parents cannot come along. Luckily my grandson has a very good head on his shoulders (as do his father and mother). But, I still don’t trust my government.

Ironically, I had never heard of Smokey Bones till now.

And ...subsequently..now I am starving at the worst possible time!

Somehow that potato I’ve got baking, I surmise..will be less than satiating...
