MAJOR THREE BULLS! ANNOUNCEMENT ON FRIDAY
-Pinko from Myanmar
I'd have to check with Ramesh and Kathryn, but my guess is that using blood cells from the unborn to save lives when there is no harm to the fetus is probably acceptable to some pro-lifers and at least it would change the moral calculus.
There is a reason you don't feel well. It's because you know you area going to be h-u-m-i-l-i-a-t-e-d. Your nervous, stressed because you are realizing that you are going to look like one big giant bubble come Sunday. Do you already have the runs? Have you camped out in your bathroom yet?

geenie cola speaks truth.
besides, how can the bears lose when they have this guy backing up made-of-glass rex:

I was going to talk some smack, but the Bears just got the kiss of death: ESPN's Bill Simmons picked them to win. That completely undoes the anti-mojo of having Sports Illustrated's Dr. Z pick them as the worst team in football in his preseason power poll.
Of course, the odds of the Panthers playing three consecutive good games are about the same as Alito upholding Roe V. Wade....

Smith went to Utah, didn't he?
Personally, I'd like Chicago if they had, you know, a quarterback. It's gonna be a 17-6 Carolina win (with a defensive TD for the Panthers).

Yosef- I think the Panthers are gonna pull it off. They've got an almost-as-dominating defense and a real QB.

The owner of Biener's Wieners, the hot dog stand which has been at the corner of State Street and North University of over 20 years, died on St. Patrick's Day of heart disease, although his partner will continue the business. Interestingly, on the day he died he experienced chest pains, but didn't go to the hospital because he didn't have health insurance. Now, had the United States had a national single-payer health insurance system like virtually every other industrialized nation, or even a state-regulated opt-in system like Mexico, who knows what might have happened ...
" Barry Biniarz, the chatty owner of Biener's Wieners, died unexpectedly of heart disease at his Michigan Center home in Jackson County on St. Patrick's Day. He had turned 50 in January.
Alan Fineran, his life and business partner of 14 years, will be back in business on the same corner one day soon. ...
"He was an exceptional guy, always nice to everybody," said Ashley Arbour, a clerk at Michigan Book & Supply just a few feet from the space Biener's Wieners typically occupies. "It's unbelievable that he's gone. It's kind of like I don't take that information as fact. It's like he's just on vacation. If there was an ice storm, they'd still be crazy and be out there selling hot dogs."
On the rare day Biniarz was a no-show, at least three or four students would stop in the store to ask where he was, Arbour said. Although he enjoyed a chili and cheese dog nearly every day, Arbour said he's changing his diet.
"After I heard the news, I've gone vegetarian," said Arbour. "I'm starting to bring in my own Boca burgers for lunch." ...
Fineran said Biniarz worked the day he died, but later at home complained that he didn't feel well. He didn't go to the doctor because he didn't have medical insurance and thought it was only indigestion anyhow, he said. Fineran's mother, Mary, said her son found him dead on the floor, and that an autopsy showed he had heart disease he hadn't known about. ...
BSG [Jonah Goldberg]This is up there with "let's just invade Iran", and of course since these cobags view military and governmental policy quite probably exactly the same as they would a fictional TV show set in space one conclusion could follow. Is Jonah projecting here?
Note there are Battlestar Galactica spoilers below. From a reader:
I shared your appreciation of BSG, as well as the dorkiness of telling people who’ve never watched the show that I like ‘Battlestar Galactica’. But can I just vent at how absolutely horrid the season premiere was? What part of “Commander-in-Chief” does so-called President Roslin not understand!? If she wanted that Admiral removed from power, she could have just detained her when they had that meeting at Colonial One. Or at least Adama could have reminded her of that responsibility when she asked him to kill her in cold blood! I can understand suspension of disbelief, but this is just too much.
Me: I agree and disagree. I liked the premiere (though it was really the premiere of the second half of this season). And I thought of that point too: Why can't the president just fire Michelle Forbes (the admiral)? One possible explanation is that the Admiral wouldn't recognize her authority (even Adama declared martial law and threw the president in prison). Another is that the President is so sick she's not thinking clearly. But ultimately, I think the reader's right. Why didn't the president just say to Adama that the admiral was fired. That would have given Adama all the "legal" authority he needed. It certainly would have gone over better than his current plan to have the admiral assasinated. I also thought the President could have volunteered to kill her. After all she's only got a few weeks to live. If she thinks it's the right thing to do, why not do it herself?
See, the thing is, all McNett has to do here is acknowledge that he was over the top and went grossly past the bounds of good tastes. Then we might have had something to talk about.
Instead he makes up fantasies about how I threatened to sue (never happened--there's nothing to sue over) and then denies he said some of the things he did (which is why I saved copies and posted them here).
I assume the incident is over and that we'll hear no more about this. If something more happens, the cops have a record. [shrug]
The situation you describe is relatively arcane, and interstate. There's likely some federal criminal component to it. Start with a good criminal lawyer who has a good sense of interplay between the state and federal systems. You could encounter a lot of indifference and resistance from the authorities due to the complexities and potential expense involved. Too often it is deemed more frugal overall to wait as a matter of policy, and not get involved until a more compelling crime has been committed. Sounds like a good time to clean the 12 gauge, stock up on the 00 Buck and take a few trips to the range with that 1911.
I would contact the Michigan authorities first and see what they advise. Word of advice someone gave to me before Hurricane Katrina struck, keep your head down and your ammo dry.Thanks, genius! I love to know what you do, because your authoritah is clearly respectedm in fact you could probably win any and all arguments merely by expressing such authority.
“Honor the Threat” is my advice. The origins of the quote are naval aviation I believe.
“view each potential hazard as a living breathing threat”
Chances are it is some pimple faced creepy kid. But why take chances? The cops can get his identity from Verizon.
He obviously wanted to be 100% sure you saw it. Take the punk at his word.
Good grief, reality surpasses fiction. In my novel, DoaB, I imagined a moonbat trying to kill bloggers, but my villain was content to murder the bloggers themselves. Stalinist show trials for you, and your family...the madness goes even deeper than I could imagine.Dear Eric, your comment illustrates your cobaggery as fact, this is not ad hominem as your words support such a conclusion. Three Bulls! invite you to EAT IT COBAG!!12!11!
My worry is that most of these are just hot air which is nerve-wracking enough, but even more the one in a hundred who is serious.
I'd report this to the blogger protection group that writes on blogger's being threatened in other nations. And it might be a good thing to have a 'Free Speech Doesn't Mean Death Threats' button like the 'Regime Change Iran' button and so forth
Tabor Delendum Est! Is there any way that this could kinda sorta be twisted euphemistically to mean "Tabor Must Go Down"? Isn't ignorance of Latin becoming mandatory in this country? Like the metric system? When was the last time you measured anything other than drugs using grams? Can someone give my chain a good yank before I tumble from a precipitous digression? There's a good chap.
