Well here is a call out to those drifting on the space bar on the keyboard sea of life….

HOW IS THAT GOD DAMNED FUCKING VOTE YOU ALL HAD TO MAKE (and HAD to berate those of us way ahead of you!) WORKIN’ OUT?

He was so great, so good, such a fucking Community Organiser (you all must never have known any, any for real!)… He would do so much good, the rest of us were RACISTS and worse.

he was Jesus, he was Martin, he was FDR, he was JFK, RFK, Ike… he was everybody! His mother was this, his father was that… He was manna from somewhere!! (And he was – and is – nobody, that was my take.)

Gonna do it again in a couple of years?

I hope you all choke on it. And feel rising vomit every time you look in a mirror.

Here is another thing, what you lot deserve is to have street cons run on you every day.

Propositioned for and accepting a three card monte challenge. Every step of the way in life.

Because you WILL fall for it.

Top form, Madame Cat, top form!
Oh that is great. :wink:

Barackeus was NOT There upon rolling back the stone.

Oh too funny! Good one!!

BooHooHooMan - 24 April 2011

Unassailable: the injured, the vulnerable, the defenseless. Afterall, this is America.
We wouldn’t want to be gun-ship gratuitous kill-team cruel, all AbuGrabian GitmoJailorJackal when reflecting upon our wards of state.

So, you know, improve gates, walk every mountain, Love You, Pageant winning POSTure for Chrissakes, maintain poise when hitting all points, etc.

Report: Giffords standing, walking on her own

PHOENIX — Doctors say Rep. Gabrielle Giffords can walk a little and is even trying to improve her gait. But a report Sunday in the Arizona Republic describes the Democratic congresswoman as having much grander plans — to “walk a mountain.”

Those close to her said Giffords speaks most often in a single word or declarative phrase: “Love you,” “Awesome.” She also longs to leave the rehab center, repeating, “I miss Tucson.”

The Republic report — containing interviews over the past few days with her husband, doctors and others close to her — gives the latest picture of her recovery 15 weeks after a gunman opened fire in a Tucson parking lot, killing six people and wounding her and 12 others.

The physicians place her in the top 5 percent {NOT AT HAAAARVARD!} of patients recovering from her type of brain injury, the newspaper said.

“She shows a lot more in­dependence right now,” said Gerard Francisco, chief medical officer at Houston’s TIRR Memorial Hermann, who works with Giffords daily. “She’s her own person.”

{OpraHHHHH!}

Though it’s not clear whether Giffords will be able to attend Friday’s launch of the space shuttle,

OH Please, JUSsst MILK IT. Will they send empty chair to launch? Extra Jello off hospital tray for the ride? The Box of Tourin? {Reference}.

which™ will be commanded by her husband, Mark Kelly, her rehabilitation has been progressing steadily.

Nurse Kristy Poteet said Giffords pushes a cart up and down the hospital halls as therapy, focusing on using the correct muscles.

Oh that IS slick. That “cart”, no mere walker for this rehabilitation chronicle. Nope, gotta push the candy-striper / hospital volunteer button, too. The propaganda peddlers keep pumping this much longer and Gabby’s push cart will have developed into a small business sucees story selling reading material, goodies, and assorted sundries to Hospital Systems in a Tri State area near, well, your closest Tri-State area. I’m just grateful it’s not around Christmas or Winter Olympics otherwise they’d have her dragging the ole rehab/ workout SLED.

Poteet, who has worked with Giffords since she arrived in Houston on Jan. 21, said more therapy comes from games of bowling and indoor golf, all small steps on the way to someday walking that mountain.

Giffords uses her left side and has begun making limited use of her right arm and leg, a common effect of a bullet wound on the left side of the brain.

“Her left side is perfect,” said Pia Carusone, her legislative chief of staff. “She can do whatever you can do.”

She said that even in her wheelchair Giffords retains the tall, tight, strong posture she had

before the shooting.

Unassailable, the standing tall…STAND-IN.
Quite the thinly veiled national metaphor.

BooHooHooMan - 25 April 2011

Calling all Script Doctors.

Closing Scene Options.
1. Does she arrive at Shuttle launch?

(*suspend that disbelief: Hubby taking extraordinarily L O N G business trip at a time like this must be seen in a most positive light)

2. How about working her in?
Like last minute, see, another shuttle astronaut falls ill, forgot something, is called up to Libya, something, and Mark asks Gabby to fill in?
She simply says
“You hah-” – like, probably, PROBABLY
“You had me at hello”
but maybe “You HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME”
– the audience doesn’t know, see –
as Mark and that kid, Hernandez**, the heroic, loyal Congressional aide who subsequently got crushed running for Student Body President at University load her in the shuttle anyways.

A stretch?

::

**Cereally, now:

LOL. **Hernandez got a BIG yawn on Campus.

Allen received 66 percent of the 1,986 ballots cast. Hernandez placed second with 21 percent.

AFTER Campain violations by BOTH. :lol:

The special election was called after Hernandez and Allen were disqualified from the general election in March for campaign violations. :lol:

Hernandez won national acclaim for trying to stop Giffords’ bleeding at the Tucson shooting by applying pressure to her gunshot wound until first responders arrived.

Hernandez didn’t immediately return a phone call and email from The Associated Press on Saturday

It’s better than the ending of Animal House, and TRUE.

::

3. Okay! So maybe she stays in Houston!
We send poignant reminder at launch because – note to engineering: this can only be shot once, the rocket blowing up Fucks Up the whole thing)

Shall we save the Big Reunion till Shuttle Returns?

marisacat - 25 April 2011

It’s been horrific.

I read her staff tweets out updates on how well she is doing. I sense a certain panic setting in… frankly.

About two weeks ago it was reported that if released to go to the launch (whcich I now read has been approved) she would, however, not be on public view. Then again some reports flaoting around yesterday and today almost state, she can do it! Cuz Michelle and Barack and Sasha and Malia will be there to help her!

They will! She can!

Oen report I read lst night says part of her skull is still detached, the hair is 2 inches long, scars are evident. My god, who is SURPRISED.. she was shot. In the head.

Except she and Kelly are pretty much propagandists and fascists of the American issue sort, it would be hideously cruel.

But, just nationalism and fucking party politics.

marisacat - 25 April 2011

oh another thing, the AZ office/s/ (and I would presume the DC office as well) have been actively fundraising off this… Last I read, a few days ago, they had received a total of 125,000.00 in campaign funds. Back when they were hinting she might jsut push that push cart all the way into a senate seat (Kyl’s I guess? Retiring?)

Not too many people are fooled.

BooHooHooMan - 25 April 2011

fundraising off this

Jesus. You know what they could get for a skull fragment?

marisacat - 25 April 2011

I see reports that there is a 200K bounty on a photo of her – to the paparazzi…. Newsday ran a teaser behind the subscription wall…, tag line says they look off into the distance, he beside her bed.

Taken from above and behind her bed, with the head end of the bed sitting up.

Tease.

3. BooHooHooMan - 25 April 2011

Oh it is. Horrific.
From start to never ending exploitative day.

And I can hear those repulsed by a blunt take.
i.e., Can’t you see the simple human tragedy here?

Oh no, we should…~recoil is it?
And blink FOR her – cross country travel-
to return to National Stage-
Yes, right up there as a recommend when focusing on, and only on, those with traumatic brain injury.

Not that ANY of That matters:
We should applaud stubby hubby, sort of a never-leave-her-side-but-gotta work, must work, workin’ Dad, sort of, sort of Democratic man-spouse cast as Astronaut version- if you can get past all the curved mirror distortions….of Sarah Brady. But more …Progresssive. A Castronaughti if you will.

We should join her return to National Stage.
Where, like Gabby, we too can stand blasted-skull-off unmistakeably TALL… in National-wheelchair. On the issues, so many missues.
Like, for States Rights on Gun Control. (Typical Dem mush.)
Which is! – but could be! – but is not!
not really a Public Health matter.
Besides, All have a better shot under Barry anyways, right? Whose thought and prayers do go out. Along with Michele and the girls.
Who , yes, we hear WILL ALL be at the launch.
::

So. She’s cleared for launch.
An announcement is made shortly before…
She WAS going to come BUT yada yada.

As Rev. BarryJesus We-Are-Risen approaches launchpad pulpit to give Blast off prayer ..Gabby appears. Or does not.

A miracle either way: as NASA wizardry is perhaps the only realm of US rocketry whereupon the a payload is celebrated for not blowing up and declared by the Empire to be a resounding success.

If anybody had some sense they’d nix the trip for her. And the stubby hubby thoopla.
And stay as far away from Barry Bad Luck as you can get.

marisacat - 25 April 2011

And I can hear those repulsed by a blunt take.
i.e., Can’t you see the simple human tragedy here?

hmm yeah I am sure. But I go for the bigger human tragedy. Oh who else is wandering around with traumatic brain injury? Yes who could that all be?

BTW, the other day, the poor tawdry old Lehrer News Hour had another one of their sign-offs of a picture and name, title, hometown and place of death for the Warriors. Of the 12, 5 died in Iraq. In their late 20s and early thirties, all but one. Staff Sargeants, Sargeants and a Captain.

It’s all about the wars. And St Gabby of Houston and Tuscon and a Safeway Parking Lot is a part of it. As is the stub-hub.

marisacat - 25 April 2011

And stay as far away from Barry Bad Luck as you can get.

:lol: I just read a report that it is not confirmed they will be actually seein’ Hands On Barack. Maybe they feel a chill from the direction of DC. That downward chute air action.

BooHooHooMan - 25 April 2011

Oh that is Funny. Because I was going to speculate in my typical Fools Rush In fashion: that Barry wouldn’t. be. showing. up. LOL BY CONSENSUS of WH ops, NASA Physicists AND Metaphysicists, Shamans and assorted Schadenfreuders worldwide. LOL. So I had to look it up and change what I wrote to an indeedy … yes, we hear WILL ALL be at the launch. and clip my meanderings down to mere Barry Bad Luck advisory at the end.

LOL . So… maybe not maybe for sure!
It’s so exciting not knowing!
What learning can we discard next?!

marisacat - 25 April 2011

I see commentary around that after he cut the budget he wants to show up and be part of the show.

Oh it is going to be a laugh a minute for months.
:twisted:

BooHooHooMan - 25 April 2011

Maybe they feel a chill from the direction of DC. That downward chute air action.

You’re not kiddin. Jeezis, just poking around now …I see the thread at The Hill a few days ago was brutal.

Basically, the storyline,
Jesus! Appearing Next Week at NASA! was met with a hearty Blow It Out Yer Ass on most fronts. Photo Op! Defunder! Jinx! Etc! And Not just from the Space Nerd Studies Set, that crowd, henh, normally yelping about funding cuts and the Russkies gaining ground (In SPACE!) , LOL (Even the Russians brought up in the thread like it’s 1959) While no NASA fan, the Loss 500O jobs is no Joke.

Thinking about it, it seems like a really botched political operation. I mean WTF is it? Lets Celebrate! Yah? Yah!
The End? Yah! The End of a Glorious Not So Many Blown Uppy Never Forget Watch ‘im Fly There He Goes Leaving Ms. Shothead here.. I mean really – who is gluing this clusterfuck together?

marisacat - 25 April 2011

I do see comments around like, “Wasn’t Bill Daley supposed to come in to do this that or other BETTER?”

Pssst, Pass it along. He may be called away from launch pad, head shot due to Syria. Other ommentary around that “now that so many have died” he “may do something”.

I say he will be hung over from watching pre-wedding and wedding (I actually read a few days ago that Michelle pretty much begged (“I would love to be invited and I would go!”) for an invite when she was last on with Larry King :oops: no with the replacement!!… kind f embarrassing!). Just his sort of thing. A wild guess on my part.
:twisted::eek::shock:

.. and so on.

oh man. Do they still ahve the bowling alley in the WH? Well they certainly have a basket ball court. Tear it, both, out immediately and install quicksand. Quagmires.

Ryan Lizza in the New Yorker: Ob’s plan is to “lead from behind”. (Reading snips in the Mike Allen slobber.)

It’s a different definition of leadership than America is known for, and it comes from two unspoken beliefs: that the relative power of the U.S. is declining, as rivals like China rise, and that the U.S. is reviled in many parts of the world. Pursuing our interests and spreading our ideals thus requires stealth and modesty as well as military strength. ‘It’s so at odds with the John Wayne expectation for what America is in the world,’ the adviser said.

‘But it’s necessary for shepherding us through this phase.'”

I may have to go read that. After more coffee…..

BooHooHooMan - 25 April 2011

LMAO.

I am Shepicus!
{roik!}
I am Shepicus!

I am Shepicus!

And so forth, Obama ‘012, Now More Than Evah, etc.

marisacat - 25 April 2011

the article itslef is awful. I DID go read it. But I excuse myself from shame, in saying I did middle of the page speed read, eye dart side to side for out of place words. Which I will stop for.

Zbig is quite disappointed in The Foundling. Gee I cannot think WHY. I would think Shepicus would suit Zbig. It mentions he intro’d Shep at some event in 2007, so quess what Z: LIVE WITH IT.

:twisted: …. :evil: …. and a big fat: :oops:

diane - 25 April 2011

Shepicus!

that was pretty fuckin good…… ;0) …. seemed to hit the spot, …to my mind.

Haley of the Old Confederacy says, syonara. It’s too damned hard….

I noticed a comment running around the past few days from The Wif, that his running “horrifies her”.

So…… oh what coulda been!

Madman in the Marketplace - 25 April 2011

it sucks when the you can’t count on the Citizen Councils to help suppress the “wrong” voters anymore …

marisacat - 25 April 2011

The whole thing gave me a laugh………………… :lol:

I thought this was an interesting post by Dennis Perrin, what struck me about it, was that: when he was in Southern Cali, he didn’t notice, or comment, on how inseperable so many were from their I-Phones, Androids, etc. …While I can’t speak for Southern Cali, I can hardly believe it’s any different there, than further north in Cali; ….I remember having moved back to Cali from PA (having moved back from moving back to PA ), one of the most gut wrenching things I remember – was saying hello to people I passed in taking a walk, thinking they had just greeted me as a fellow stranger in passing, when, actually, they were plugged in, – what hurt even worse, was that none of them ever acknowledged me to even say, they were talking on the device, ….but hello anyway, ….stranger passing ……………….when I knew they heard me say: hello …….

diane - 25 April 2011

Fish on hooks show more life.

(Dennis, …and I ultimately, agree with him on that.)

marisacat - 25 April 2011

oh taht si an interesting piece… thanks:

I was drawn to Ed Ruscha’s photographs at the Yancey Richardson Gallery. His Gasoline Stations 1962-89 are time capsules for a long-dead America. Full service stations along two-lane highways. Detroit’s imperial car-boats under Fina and TraveLodge signs. Sun beating down in the middle of nowhere. People unhurried, casual. An ancient pace. I’m old enough to remember that world, but young enough to appreciate faster times. Lined against each other, Ruscha’s photos at first appear redundant. Get close. Sink in. Ghosts spring to life.

diane - 25 April 2011

you’re welcome hon.

;0)

diane - 25 April 2011

I’m quite sure they would have acknowledged me if they’d been in danger, and asked me for help … ‘tricky,’ so many times frightening, …earth, …we live on.

marisacat - 25 April 2011

I wouldn’t count on it.

diane - 25 April 2011

sigh, ….yeah, …that’s why I used the word “acknowledged,” versus, say, ‘care about.’

marisacat - 25 April 2011

I can’t tell who “they” are in this.

diane - 25 April 2011

sorry hon: people so hooked into their techie devices …. they lose the present physical place they are in, and ignore the passers by: who may have something pleasant or helpful to say, or, may want to do them harm.

marisacat - 25 April 2011

hmm i dunno about locale, but a whole lotta Middle Eastern men driving cabs would b in major major withdrawal about driving and talking. Even with ear pieces, Blue Whatevers. Constant. Not the odd call, here and there.

I am amazed they notice the road at all. Or lights.

diane - 25 April 2011

something struck me years ago, about how keyed in persons from the Middle East were on “US” technology….I felt like an idiot in their midst, …but I had absolutely no clue then, as to the plans which have somewhat come to fruition … (and, of course those ‘born to nurture …and bring to life’ females,…. are dogmeat, … no matter who ‘wins’ that battle?).

(yeah ..that is somewhat of an asides …but I wanted to include it before that spontaneous urge, slipped away hon.)

Hot Business Tips For America

I don’t know if you’ve heard or not lately, but dad-made billionaire Donald Trump has been capturing the attention of the nation by suggesting he might possibly run for President of the United States. This is actually one of those things that happens every decade or so; some massively rich person like Trump (or Perot or Forbes) announces that they’re going to run for President because they’re successful businessmen, and “they can run this country like a business.” For some reason, this quote is never greeted with the guffaws of hilarity that it deserves; somehow, we never hear about famous directors announcing that they’re going to run America like a production of “Guys and Dolls”, or successful ranchers announcing that they’re going to run America like a cattle farm. When businessmen announce that they’re going to run America like they ran IBM, though, we can’t get enough.

Probably it’s just that we’re easily impressed by businessmen in America. We might not know much about governing, but pretty much everyone has tried to make money, and we all know how hard it is. So when someone who makes a lot of money talks, we tend to say, “Wow. He must be smart, if he can make that much money.” (We tend to forget options like, “He must be incredibly unethical,” or “He must have a rich daddy whose money he squandered to the point where he had to declare bankruptcy multiple times.”) But maybe, just maybe, these businessmen have a point. Let’s look at some of the ways Obama could run America like a business.

marisacat - 25 April 2011

The single MOST hilarious thing said about Perot (by people planning to vote for him) was that rich men were beyond being bought.

Gawd…….that was a SCREAM!!
