14:58 – Laundry, kit stuff, and trying to get migrated over to the new system. The old one is showing some ominous symptoms, which isn’t surprising considering that I originally intended to retire it four years ago.

  1. I see that Dear Leader is now backpedaling on the Syrian gig, probably due to multiple nooz reports now that the rebels actually accidentally lit off the chemical weapons that they bought from or were given by Saudi Prince Bandar, our great pal, who used to hold hands with Shrub on the latter’s ranch. It is also the Saudi princes who finance the madrassahs from which come all the suicidal/homicidal hadji bastards, among them the guys who like to publicly behead Christian clergy in Syria and who also tear the hearts from dead soldiers and eat them. These are the people we support against optometrist Assad. And the folks beside whom McNutter likes to pose.

    Meanwhile back home we have a SCOTUS justice officiating for a gay marriage at the Kennedy Center (JFK and Bobby must be spinning), the planned teaching of no-holds-barred sex ed in elementary schools, and a renewed assault on gun rights. While we continue to see one story after another of mad-dog robocops smashing down doors, using SWAT to bust up poker games, and throwing mental patients face-first down flights of concrete stairs, while strip-searching women on the roadside and now they’re all upset because it looks like the Feds are finally gonna lay off the pot busts.

    What a country!

    Why would either of those two scumbags care? Judging by their own behavior, neither cared one whit about the ‘traditional’ notions of marriage.

  3. True, that. But they wouldn’t have been too gung-ho over a gay “marriage,” either. Wow, I never thought I’d run into anyone outside my own family who thought they were a couple of scumbags. Believe me, we knew, all those years ago, living down there in MA.

  4. You have a higher opinion of JFK and RFK than I do.

    I just read a report that the California bushfires may have started in or near pot plantations. Too bad they can’t legalise it and tax it like a sensible government would.

    By government agents? That’s what the authorities do around here: set the field on fire.

  6. JFK was OK, war hero and all. Especially contrasted to the current white house inhabitant and Jimmy Carter.

    RFK was the type to nuke them all and let God sort them out. His presidency would have been … interesting.

  7. I have an open opinion on JFK’s war record, but IIRC our host has said he should have been court martialed.

    The father is the guy I really despise, more even then Teddy. He was an Anglophobe who was made ambassador to the UK early in WWII and his views on Hitler and the Nazis were questionable, to say the least.

  8. The old man was a bootlegging Nazi, plain and simple, and was recalled because of the latter.

    Saint Jack was a primo bullshit artist and his war record is questionable, like Vinegar John’s. And even had he not been murdered, it is doubtful, with his awful medical condition, that he would have survived a second term.

    Saint Bobby was a loose cannon nutball and yes, his presidency would have been interesting.

    What I find particularly amusing (or sad, depending) about this, is that he was reassuring the public that he had reliable intelligence that the weapons had been employed by the Syrian government. Very reliable, indeed…just like the WMD intelligence on Iraq. Which is to say: You invent the evidence that you want to have. How embarrassing, when it turns out not to be true.

    The whole political class needs brought down to earth. I suggest deploying in the front lines of the next conflict they start.

  10. It may be that all or most of us here are agreed on that by now; let the chickenhawk bastards go right to the front lines of the endless wars they themselves contrive.
