7 ft wall goes up during the night, around the convention center where the G-20 is held.

LA Times

[I]t just sends the wrong message,” said Jang Sung-min, a former national legislator. “It reminds me of our country’s dark days of military dictatorship. It just doesn’t fit today’s South Korea.”

Security workers said they waited until 10 p.m. to erect the structure to reduce the inconvenience to adjacent residents and businesses. Critics counter that officials sought to keep it hidden amid all the feel-good pre-summit hoopla.

“It’s a barrier to keep South Korea outside the conference,” said Seoul G-20 spokeswoman Sohn Jie-ae. “It’s not something security people want to talk about — a necessary evil.”

The wall is actually one of three summit barriers erected here. There is also a “second line” green barbed-wire fence, as well as a “third line.”

Additional security includes anti-terrorism guard posts and a secret state-of-the-art system that one newspaper here said can “detect possible terrorist suspects who have even had plastic surgery to change their faces.”

Yeah right. Meanwhile we are still unclear on missile, contrail, bird, plane, Superman… or “?” — out here on our ‘streak to the sky’ of a couple days ago….

I call it our cute little terrorist missile from the far side of Catalina island. (what the hell, and who cares)

I think Mr Bowles is kindly showing us all how to hold a cat food can.

I think he’s explaining the reason why he’s not popular with the ladies, and why he always got the ugly friend when Bill used him as a wingman at the bars in Little Rock.

marisacat - 11 November 2010

oh gawddd.. can you imagine trolling the bars in LR.

I wonder if Chapel Hill is marginally better (J Edwards)

colleen - 16 November 2010

I think he’s indicating the size of Alan Simpson’s penis while explaining why it doesn’t hurt all that much to be fucked by him. What a pity they don’t have Bruce Frickin Reed in the photo to round it out.

Congrats for the mention on Bowie’s site, lucid! K3wl, as the kids say. (Do they still say that? I’m so old…)

Obama Urges Patience on Deficit Commission’s Work


SEOUL – President Obama sent a stern reminder to lawmakers on Thursday to be open-minded about the work of a bipartisan deficit commission – a warning shot to Democrats, notably House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who have condemned the preliminary recommendations of the panel’s chairmen.


Mrs. Pelosi has called the plan “simply unacceptable.’’ Mr. Obama, in Seoul for the G-20 gathering of world leaders, said he would not comment until a final report is released, and urged others to hold their tongues. [OK… so maybe that is what Lipless No 2 is demonstrating ”how to”? —Mcat]

“Before anybody starts shooting down proposals, I think we need to listen, we need to gather up all the facts,’’ Mr. Obama said during a joint news conference with President Lee-Myung Bak of South Korea. “I think we have to be straight with the American people. If people are, in fact, concerned about spending, debt, deficits and the future of our country, then they’re going to need to be armed with the information about the kinds of choices that are going to be involved, and we can’t just engage in political rhetoric.” ….

Laugh laugh laugh.

catnip - 11 November 2010

Shorter Obama: Suck it!

marisacat - 11 November 2010

I’d add:

Shut it bitch.

And really if he wants to blame La Nan, he needs to blame himself. And the wif. And that Spanish beach too. The smoothly raked one… (and so much else.)

ADL blasts Beck

Foxman talks to The Jewish Week about Glenn Beck’s Soros theorizing:

For a political commentator or entertainer to have the audacity to say, there’s a Jewish boy sending Jews to death camps, that’s horrific. It’s totally off limits and over the top.”

Beck’s comments “were either out of total ignorance or total insensitivity,” he said.

Posted by Ben Smith 11:13 AM

Let’s see…. I have Abe Foxman in the palm of one hand… Glenn Beck in the other hand. What to do??? What to do????

Smash my hands together and crush both.

Some solutions are simple. If bloody and a bit messy.

Lipless and then some. Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson….

just goes to show how fucking big tapeworms can get, will never forget as a child, the time my cat puked up a hideously leenggggthy one.

diane - 11 November 2010

And then, there is, …the PIN WORM ….likely camaflogued as overflowing with concern for all the peeps …..every bit as deadly as the tape worm …………….jeesh ..life has become a true quagmire…

diane - 11 November 2010

hmmmm …come to think of it…the asshole may as well be measuring worm length…. could care less about educating us on how to hold our dinner plates …he is fascinated by his lipless ‘kissing’ cousins and preparing for a dissertation and white paper on maggots and their relatives.

I am enlightened.

Now, if they can figure out why the landlord’s cat likes to grab the water dishes with his paw, drag them across the floor (and rugs) and dump them out frequently – that would be helpful. I believe they call that “Little Furry Shit Disturber Syndrome”.

marisacat - 11 November 2010

I guess that cat cannot be left with unnattended water.

Maybe introduce him to a POOL. No dragging that baby across the floor!

catnip - 12 November 2010

😆 That would work.

marisacat - 12 November 2010

I t sure would be fun.. like watching cats try to catch a spot light from a flashlight…

Butterscotch the Evil LOVES to fling water out of the bowl and all over the damn floor. She also prefers to drink dirty water, rather than clean.


Madman in the Marketplace - 13 November 2010

“Butterscotch the Evil” sounds funny, like “Fluffy the Destroyer”.


ms_xeno - 13 November 2010

Yes, that’s the idea.

Of course, Sid is just “THE Sid.” Like when I buddy of mine years back named his cat “THE Balrog” after a Tolkien monster or whatever.

Incidentally, The Sid got on the counter last Sunday and ate a 5″ piece of string that had been wrapped around a roast beef while it was cooking. So we rushed the little shit to the emergency vet and $1800!!! later, he’s fine.

But I’m gonna’ be pretty fucking sick when I get my next credit card bill, let me tell you…

my old dentist stopped serving her cats bottled water when she saw them… yeah you know, imbibing in the powder room.

Wordless Video for Haiti: How To Make Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT) in camps, to combat cholera

Dr. Jan Gurley (shown at left) has been going to Haiti since the earthquake, and is there now. She and friends made a video that shows you how to make Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT) in the sheet camps, using salt, sugar, and bottlecaps to measure. 4 caps sugar, 1 cap salt, 500ml clean water = life. Direct link to video here. Doc Gurley hopes the video will go viral, aid workers have smart phones that can show videos & many Haitians have video-enabled cell phones.

As I expected, the first thing after losing the election, they cave on the Bush tax cuts.


marisacat - 11 November 2010

They tied themselves into knots when they foolishly said that 200,000 dollars – or close to it… (and always a lot of confusion over was that gross or net or what… just a mess!) but they killed themselves when they broadcast a number.

And a number that is too low, too.

They really are screwballs… whether on purpose or not.

God I love it. After the so called smart money here pumped the Dow and plowed deeper into Chinese Equities. Oops!

Nice pushback, Beijing! Well Played!

And they’re shutting down further property buys by foreign entities. Which should put a little damper in the pampers of our connivers in the process of foisting real property holders on whoever the next sucker is in line…

Again well played, Beijing! Well played!

Before i read this I saw snips from the presser… it looked like he was literally dying on his feet. What a fucking mess.

Maybe mammma never told him there’d be days like this.

[T]he president complained several times during his news conference about the U.S. media’s coverage of the G-20 summit. He pushed back at the suggestion that he’s weaker on the world stage because of the midterm elections and argued that his fellow leaders are no tougher on him than they were a year ago when he was new to the scene and his poll numbers were high.

“I remember our first G-20, you guys writing the exact same stories you’re writing now. Don’t you remember that, Sheryl?” Obama snapped at the New York Times’ Sheryl Stolberg.

Asked by CBS’s Chip Reid what complaints heard from other leaders during the summit, Obama shot back: “What about compliments?”

He appeared thin-skinned about the characterizations of his time at the summit, grumbling that nobody wrote about leaders setting the stage for financial regulatory reform at the last G-20 summit because it “wasn’t real sexy” and criticizing reporters’ “search for drama.” ….

Have you read the latest info on Vit. D?

B-12 Levels?

Iron levels?

catnip - 12 November 2010

My B-12 is low (130 this week). I give myself injections. I take Vit D for my various bone problems. My iron is good, afaik. I just need to be knocked out for a week or so. That would be a nice break.

dropout - 12 November 2010

I started taking 5000mg of B-12 and 25 mg of iron, plus 2000 of D and it’s helped some. Especially the B-12.

….the ever balancing act of controlling chronic pain.

I am starting a new hobby to occupy my mind. Designing and building cat condos for Barn Cats or feral cat colonies…crazy!

Oh it was hysterical… and wonderul…

Cats do have a way of getting us to work for them. Just went out and bought some hay. Guess that is the best interior material to work with.

If you take pictures of what you build, or a working model or whatever, please link to it here…

Fantastic idea… 😉

catnip - 13 November 2010

That sounds like a great hobby. Cats deserve their own palaces (and they know it). 🙂

I think it’s great that you’re building them for the wild ones. That’s a nice luxury.

I just gave away a bunch of old pillows, blankets and towels to a lady who shelters animals yesterday. Softness for the critters: the more, the better.

good thing for him tulle stands up to moisture so well (though actually, not sure about that urine moisture), or he’d probably look even more of a mess, it is not every day that DC will send out the message, to those surrounding 17 plus counties (along with all of those acronymed forces of the deep unaccountable “black” hole funded, ….(and one has to wonder how much all that helicopter fuel costs in a “bankrupt” state.)), that enforcements are demanded by the big worm devoured dog, or is it son of the big worm devoured dog…distant cousin of the big worm devoured dog?

aargh… 5:07 am Pacific Saturday…

Just back online after being off from 11 am or so Friday.

I don’t know what it was…. kept getting a busy (or so Netzero told me) when trying all three local access numbers…

Over and over again…. I began to hope it might be at their end, as their general instructions for that problem did not seem to indicate it was at my end (unless I had “noise” on the line…. ) and it seemed they hd no other San Francisco numbers to offer.

Anyway, at least for the moment, I am finally back on, after trying every couple of hours.

But I alos don’t know if I have a really good stable connection either… so will leave this thread up… and for the moment not struggle to put a new one up.

Gah. The joys of inefficient modernism.

wish me luck…

If Horatio Alger Had a Trust Fund, by Gen. JC Christian, patriot:

The presidential memoir serves an important function in our society. It provides a former president with an opportunity to shape how we will be viewed by history.

They aren’t easy books to write. Facts create roadblocks that the ex-president must overcome. Most attempt to do so by twisting and tearing at the facts until an acceptable truth emerges. My president, Our Glorious Leader George W. Bush, boldly took another approach. He tortured the facts until they confessed to their treachery. Then, He summarily executed them with a Hellfire-C missile launched from a Predator drone.

And the results are breathtaking. I stood up and cheered when I read His claim that waterboarding isn’t torture because He paid His lawyers to say it isn’t. That’s chutzpah, my friends. It’s a zen kind of chutzpah, one that is only achieved when self delusion and a supreme lack of self-awareness come into perfect balance.

I was also very moved by His recounting of His childhood encounter with the Bush family fetus jar. It was very vividly written. I can almost see Barbara Bush standing there in her blue gown, arms outstretched as she presents the fetus jar to young W. “Hold him, W,” she screeches, her pearls rattling angrily, “kiss your little dead fetus brother; kiss him now, you little mistake!”

Now that’s parenthood. It’s no wonder He became what He is today.

It does not matter if the story is true or not. No one cares that it’s more likely that Barbara caught young George drinking from the family fetus jar. The story works either way, because it’s about respect for life or the alcohol that preserves the traces of it. And that’s the key to understanding President Bush. He respects life so much, He eagerly takes it from those he deems undeserving.

marisacat - 13 November 2010

Yes the fetus story… Martha Raddatz and Jackie Calmes were just getting into a really (well almost, let’s be real) good back and forth on that story, when Gwen Ifill cut it off.

gah…. But Raddatz did manage to get in that W mentioned in the telling he had just gotten his license… and she looked it up, at that time you could get a driver’s license in Tejas at 14….

This whole “respect” for life is just such a fucking crock.
