We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Since it's Presidential politics 24/7/365 and this particular thread has nothing to do with former Vice President Nelson Rochefellar but rather Anna Nicole Smith I fgure I'd offer this blast from the past. Particularly for those younger bloggers.
Where was Megan Marshak when Vice-President Nelson Rockefeller Died?
Where then was she?
The official coronerís report, issued by the competent New York State authority, states that Nelson Rockefeller died of a heart attack while he was having sexual intercourse. You can look it up in the archives at 28th Street and First Avenue (provided they let you look at this one).
Megan Marshak was, in fact, underneath Nelson Rockefeller when he died. (MORE)**
** If you immediately recollected the name Megan Marshak please go to the head of every line you ever encounter from this day forward. Your parchment signed award is in the mail, and you are now a member of the Cliff Clavin Club or the CCC....in fact you are a Imperial High Potato of the CCC.
O/T...the best argument for allowing citizens to carry concealled weapons was the recent shootings in Utah.
Had it been in Florida, I wouuld have whipped out my concealled weapon and at least laid down some covering fire for the innocent people. I carry a 1911 .45ACP with two extra clips..I might have even bagged myself a nutcase.
Once again, good on ya habu. How's about a national CC. But really, it appears html links will not work here. Could we get a hint from the ubermaster web guy, Chris(?) This has always worked for me, Put the verbiage here, I'm sure there is a good reason to disallow same here. Sorry for so many hears, but I can't.
AL SADR FLEES TO TEHRAN. Captain Ed is happy: "This couldn't have come at a better time. Congress has tied itself in knots trying to opine on what a disaster the surge will be, and before they can vote on a resolution scolding George Bush for wasting resources, he's already chased one of the worst actors out of Baghdad. Nancy Pelosi will be holding a debate to disapprove of a strategy that has already demonstrated success."
Gateway Pundit has more, and Iraq will be closing its borders with Syria and Iran, which it seems to me it should have done a long time ago.
Skookumchuk, excellent idea on citizen reserves. Sign me up. It shouldn't take twenty years for such a good idea too be implemented. OK, bubble burst, it may take fifty years for this too happen. But you are correct, it will come to that.
