    Due to inflation caused by QE3 we can no longer afford RRRRRs and must use QQQQQs for talk like a pirate day.

    The net effect is we will all sound like angry stuttering jihadists trying to say Al QQQQQQQQueda.

    I think I heard a stray cat outside saying that, but it may have been choking up a hairball.

    Still beats listening to the mating cats bellowing “ashaddu an la ilaha illa Allah” all night

    Obama’s plans for pirates day: continuing raiding the treasury.

    Talk like a pirate day. Arr.

    Barbados didn’t have much of a pirate heritage on account that it was overrun by British soldiers. That island made a ton of bank in the sugar and rum trades, was strategically crucial, and also very small. There was Sam Hall Lord, I suppose (a cousin of mine!), but he barely counts.

    I understand that Jamaica was a little more… libertarian, on that issue.

    And I will hoist some rum to the memory of Captain Morgan. Burning Panama City LIKE A BOSS.

    Did Meier is a genius. Love his games. Have spent untold hours at Civilization, Gettysburg, Antietam, and Alpha Centauri.

    Meier’s Civilization 2 was one of those games that may have cost me a few GPA decimals in college.

    Ha, Commodore 64 was state of the art when I was in college. We wasted some time with that, but spent most nights playing Euchre. Also a good way to shave the GPA…

    @ Daffy Duck:

    The good ol’ C-64. I had one of those, and used it for more years than I want to think about. It was my only computer until well after AlGore ‘took the initiative to create the internet’ (said in a near monotone voice). In some ways, I prefer it to the newest computers. For example, it didn’t take any time at all to start up.

    York: Romney lopes along as Dems run for their lives

    A look at the Republican presidential candidate’s schedule of public events shows a remarkably relaxed pace for a man who says this election is critical to America’s future. Here’s what Romney has done in the last week on the trail:

    He had one public appearance on his schedule Monday, Sept. 17, a speech to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Los Angeles.

    He had one appearance scheduled Sunday, an airport rally in Pueblo, Colo., but it was canceled after a small plane crash there killed one person.

    Romney had no public events Saturday. On Friday, he attended a single rally, at Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio. On Thursday, he attended a single rally, at a park in Fairfax, Va. On Wednesday, he was scheduled to hold a single campaign event at his headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla., but instead appeared at a hastily organized press conference to denounce President Obama’s response to the embassy crises in Libya and Egypt. On Tuesday, Romney had one event, a speech to the National Guard Association convention in Reno, Nev. And on the day before that, another single rally, in Mansfield, Ohio.

    Romney’s light schedule of public events “has its own body language,” says Pat Caddell, the political consultant best known for his work on Jimmy Carter’s 1976 and 1980 campaigns. “It doesn’t strike you as a campaign in the greatest crisis this country has faced. … [Romney] comes off as passive.”

    If he’s not on the stump at the height of the campaign, what is Romney doing? After all, Barack Obama, when he’s on the trail, usually manages to hold at least two public events each day, and he’s supposed to have a full-time job.

    Romney, a busy and industrious man, isn’t goofing off. Privately, campaign aides point to the heavy burden of fundraising imposed on candidates since Obama blew up the system of publicly financed campaigns in 2008. Keeping up with the president in the money race takes up a lot of Romney’s time.


    This all doesn’t look good.

    I was just in the hotel fitness center.
    Morning Joe was on TV with Tina Brown, publisher
    of Newsweek.
    Seh was in full attack mode on Romney & even called the
    Republican Convention the “Stumble Bum Convention”
    So she was Ok with the Dem all abortion all of the time convention,
    an address by an “illegal” alien & booing God?

    Avast me harties!

    Let’s hope our ‘leaders’ up in DC tell the imams in Egypt and elsewhere to walk the plank like the scurvy swabs they are when they ask us to turn this ‘film maker’ over to them.

    The movie may be crap (quality), and it isn’t something that’s a ‘polite’ thing to say, but it’s his right to say it. If he’s fool enough to ever travel over to Egypt or Saudi Arabia, then he can face their court. If he travels to Europe, they may well turn him over. But as long as he’s here, they can burn their whole country to cinders for all I care.

    @ Guggi:
    The “Stimulus”was was extremely successful. The whole point was to increase the national debt while keeping unemployment up. That isn’t as easy to do as you might think, but Obama did remarkably at both goals. He has.managed to accumulate more months of 8 +% unemployment than the previous 11 presidents combined ! It takes real skill to do that.

    Yes, he had the right to make and show the “movie” but he had no right to alter the words spoken by the actors without their knowledge afterwards. He brought them in serious if not deadly danger and they should sue the hell out of him.

    And btw.: if the quality of the movie is low or not is irrelevant because Muslims all over the world don’t riot against the movie because of it’s of “low quality”.

    There is a Laffer-study out which shows clearly that the “stimulus” didn’t have any effect. :-)
