Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist


Hmmmmmmm…either my eyes have gotten a lot better overnight or the font sizes here are larger than usual on both of our machines.

I am so (not) looking forward to unloading the kids’ moving truck today. (Happy to assist them, but I’m a bit creaky -- in addition to cranky -- this morning.)

G’morning. It’s a beautiful day here in Happy Larry-ville. Daring Fatwa is cranky and creaky. He wasn’t kidding about that.

We slept on the couch (and loveseat) last night because FTR and FSR da foist slept over since they packed EVERYTHING THEY OWN but won’t actually be unpacking until today. And we gave them our bed. Because we are odd people who keep weird hours, and because we don’t have a bed put together in the guest room at the moment.

I am already weary of the Breast-Beating-O-Rama surrounding the 50th Anniversary of MLK’s most famous speech. Especially the scum like Rep. John Lewis who may have demonstrated a small bit of courage a half-century ago before becoming grievance-mongering filth.

Not to mention pusillanimous prevaricators like the not-actually-a-Reverend Jesse Jackson, Sr. (Not to be confused with embezzling tax-leech Jesse Jackson, Jr.)

It’s too bad Dr. King’s family has so thoroughly and avariciously monetized his legacy, else they might actually call-out some of those putrescent, sleazy individuals. (With few exceptions, I find most of Dr. King’s family disgraceful.)

Good morning!

So is this the week when America starts a new middle-east adventure? Will it be Syria or Egypt? Drones or missiles? Boots on the ground? Sternly worded letters?

My money is on Thursday for the kickoff.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Fatwa -- I feel for you, man. Whenever we moved (as kids or adults), we always set up the beds first and had a box with sheets, blankets, pillows, and enough kitchen items to get us through a couple of meals while the rest got unpacked.

Just got home from unloading teh 27′ truck; oy, steps. 😉

Will it be Syria or Egypt?

Whichever one Valerie Jarrett thinks will be worse for teh Joooooooos. (And if it’s worse for America, too, that’s a bonus.)

Paddy --

The kids are old enough that they should have planned this move a lot better. But I got major props from ’em; that’s worth something. (And even moreso from SackO’SugarK.)

When Fatwa is cranky, how does one tell the difference?

According to my better half, when I’m that way even while drinking my morning coffee. (My own answer would probably be more along the lines of “if I’m breathing”.)

Gonna go yell at teh dog; I’m sure he deserves it for something. BBIAB. 😉

Our House rep sits on the Oversight Committee; they’ve got waaaaaaay too full a plate with Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Solyndra, the IRS, the NSA and more. And they’re getting nowhere on any of that stuff; nor are any of the members bothering to even get mad when they’re blatantly lied to and jacked around

I think they ought to hire temporary “contract congressmen” to help alleviate the workload. I should contact Mr. Woodall and offer to sit in Oversight hearings on his behalf to do the well-warranted belittling of and ranting at folks like Clapper and Lerner that he cannot be arsed to do. 😉

Oh…I meant to post this yesterday:
