Sure Happy It’s Thursday -- and Day 3 of the CasaK “FY, TW!” Festival of Civil Disobedience, GN!

Hi, RabBeet!

Perhaps we ought to have a pool re the date and time Weepy Boner will cave; it’s his nature. It’s what he does.

As jandiced a view as I generally have of politicians, I never thought I’d see the sort of petty petulance from a POTUS which Il Douchey has displayed of late.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
I’d really like to see this shutdown result in smaller government. But then there are a lot of things I’d really like to see that I don’t think will ever happen.

I’m hoping that the right can do a better job, this time, of getting their message out, but I won’t hold my breath.

Alas, the powers-that-be at teh GOP don’t seem to have any interest in actually reducing the size and scope of the government. (Which makes sense; that would diminish their power and they have zero vested interest in that.)

Which pretty much leaves us small-government types in the position of having to organize from the ground-up. The Tea Partiers have done a fairly good job thus far, especially considering the shenanigans of the IRS re same.

(Which really ought to be pursued far more vigorously than Issa and his band of cowardly crapweasels on Oversight -- including our Rep -- will ever do. AFAIC, Lois Lerner and her ilk ought to be incarcerated at a facility like Gitmo, since from my POV, they are legitimate enemies of the state and ought to be treated as such.)

Heard POSOTUS’s* speech while running errands; what a clueless, condescending tool he is.

I could tell every time he went off-teleprompter ’cause he’s so totally inarticulate when he tries to “wing it”.

I drove out to the base this morning. The Commissary is closed due to Teh JEF, (And I don’t usually talk that way even in abbreviations.) I hate him more each day than I ever thought possible .

But the two Base X-changes were open.

So I guess the actives & retirees can buy all the Schlitz they want but no Cheez Doodles. Because they need to be able to buy furniture, electronics, garden supplies, clothes & books but no milk or diapers.
At least I didn’t have TM with me.

Yet another reason to donate nothing except blood to the Red Cross:

The International Committee of the Red Cross have called for video games to punish crimes committed in battle by adhering to real-life international war conventions.

“The ICRC believes there is a place for international humanitarian law (the law of armed conflict) in video games,” the organization that works worldwide to provide humanitarian help for people caught in war zones said in a statement on their website.

“The ICRC is concerned that certain game scenarios could lead to a trivialization of serious violations of the law of armed conflict,” they added. “The fear is that eventually such illegal acts will be perceived as acceptable behavior.”

“We’re not asking for censorship, we don’t want to take any elements out of the games,” he said. “We’re not trying to make games boring or preachy, but we’re hoping that the ones that offer a realistic portrayal of a modern battlefield can incorporate some sort of reward or penalties depending on whether they follow the basic rules of armed conflict.

“We are not talking about censorship or banning anything,” he added. “It’s just making it more realistic, the same way the military has rules on the battlefield, then gamers have the same rules.”

I’m sure that “Call of Duty: The Hague” will be a popular title. Ditto “Halo: Tribunal on Nuremburg VII”.

Because realism is the goal of those types of games…

I’m sort of surprised them racist patriarchal TeaTerrorists let a sista’ be part of their organization.

I guess they needed someone to clean their toilets.

The way the left thinks, Fatwa, they are likely stunned tonight by this turn of events: that blacks are actually part of the Tea Party.

I shouldnt be enjoying this shutdown this much considering that the zombie hordes will probably be on the march this weekend, but politics has been quite fun this week with all the hyperventilating coming from the Dems. Obama’s stupid statements; Reid’s stupid statements, the over the top terrorist and violent comments, etc. Popcorn has rarely tasted better.

Im somewhat excited about our new law giving driving licenses to the illegal and undocumented visitors in our state. It doesnt go into effect until 2015, but Im thinking it might be a good opportunity to obtain some phony ID at the state’s expense.

Indeed. It’s the perfect trifecta: the sequester; the shutdown; and the winds. It’s like a hat trick—straight out of hell!

Hey did Jerrie win the captioning contest again, or is he going to win it tomorrow night?

Speaking of winning contests before they’ve occurred:

Years ago, I worked with Chick Hearn on an ongoing recording project. He told me that for several months after he and the Lakers moved to L.A., he had to take a Friday redeye to Minneapolis so that on Saturday mornings he could tape interviews with the winners of Saturday night’s wrestling match in MN and then get on a plane back to L.A. for Lakers’ games.
