I love that mashup, because the guy with the instant vanilla rouge represents just about every smarmy jerk I can think of including the snide and arrogant medium-sized dollop of eyegorp named Piers Stefan Pughe-Morgan. I’d never heard of the smug douchebag until his interview with Andrew Breitbart.

Meanwhile, Mr. P.S.P-M can take his carpetbagging anti-American propaganda-pimping style of “journalism” back to Oceania and stuff it up his CNN.

    Along with the left, Mikey put Conservatives out in the cornfield. He was obviously referring to ‘his’ people.

    You’ve already done the hardest part of giving up smoking. I started really young and spent years stopping and starting back. What seemed to work best for me is the idea that all I had to do was make it to the next day. Being told I could NEVER do anything again was just too much to deal with. So, I just shortened my time frame to make it do-able.

    The urge to smoke does go away. You start wondering why you’re keeping those dumb ashtrays in the house. The big secret about smoking is you don’t need it. It was all marketing.

    /doc was surprised I’m not in pain with my legs but I’m not. The only problem I have is that one leg goes to sleep way too easy and is hard to wake up. All the doc said was “that’s odd.” Describes me prefectly…odd. I already look like Jack the Rippers bitch. Hubby says with all these scars I need some tat’s now. Hhmmm-hmmmm not happening. ;)

    I liked smoking. I didn’t start to tick off parents or anything…I just liked it. It’s a habit you really don’t want to start. I don’t drink or anything else but I smoked and am paying a heavy price for it. What is wrong with me is part inherited and made much worse because I smoked.

    Indeed. I probably would’ve had problems but not as bad if I hadn’t smoked. Live and learn. I was showing no signs either EKG, blood-work, heart imaging all didn’t show that all my arteries were blocked just about. I’m lucky to be alive. All I had was two spells. Not heart attacks (a mild one of those would have killed me)just spells. And many thanks to {{Calo}} for telling me to get to the doc ASAP. Because I just thought it was some type of muscule spasm. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I had heart problems. I didn’t even have high blood pressure. No signs other than those two spells.

    But, we are both victims of smoking induced heart disease at a relatively early age.

    I only hope I am on the right track to reverse the damage I caused.

    Maybe “hispandering” was the exact wrong thing to do to attract Hispanic voters. It certainly explains the conundrum that every time Republicans push for amnesty their support among Hispanics drops.

    How Republicans can create more jobs and win over Hispanic voters

    In the stampede of media advice to Republicans to pass “comprehensive immigration reform” (supposedly to win more Hispanic votes in 2016), hardly any dust has been kicked up by discussing whether more immigration would be good for Hispanic Americans themselves.

    If Republicans want more Hispanic votes, they might consider pushing policies that actually help Hispanic voters get back to work and increase their incomes.

    Comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) would do the opposite because all CIR proposals are about increasing the number of citizens of other countries who are allowed to jump into the job-application lines to compete with the 20 million Americans who want a full-time job but can’t find one. …

    @ Calo:

    I think we are both very, very lucky because we are young and we are going to recover well. You are ahead of me and younger than me so I think you are going to be great. Who would’ve thunk it huh? No study needs to be shown…I think you and I are the proof of that study. Doc also said heart problems manifest differently in women than in men. One thing I am looking forward to is more energy. I had no idea how little energy I had. Plus I have bad bones on top of everything else! But I really do need to give you many thanks for making me take that first spell seriously. I did go to doc ASAP. If it hadn’t been for you showing concern at the symptoms I would have ignored that spell and blown it off as just stress. Thanks Calo..I owe you my life.

I knew my hubby wanted a second opinion but he was too scared to move me. Yeah my surgeon really did well…he said everything went as planned and was surprised that it did because I wasn’t going to be easy he said. But everything went as planned. When I got home I let it hit me about a week after I got home. The first week home I was in and out of it. Yes God was very good to me. Now you are going to make me cry! But good tears…not sad ones!

    All of November I was going through tests because I had a spell at the beginning of November..the tests didn’t show anything serious …maybe a stent if I failed the stress test. It wasn’t until they went in with the cath that they saw how badly blocked my arteries were. Once they saw that held hostage at hospital until the doc could do surgery.

    No I was a smoker…not anymore.
    Since surgery I haven’t smoked one cigarette.

    @ Lily:

    You were wise enough to at least get the tests done, and a stress test & cath. I just kept on going to work the whole week. Before I left home for Christmas, my chest hurt so badly I was lying on the floor in the garage. Once the pain went away, I got up, got in the car, and hit the highway.

    Mrs should have given me a major ‘Gibbs Smack’.

    I don’t think so. I’m still having pain in chest (bone is hurting) so if I were smoking any pain would really freak me out. So besides I don’t want to put my husband through this again.

    @ Lily:

    No heart attack, but the surgeon said I could have had a ‘major event’ at any time. He wasn’t happy I’d driven over 100 miles by myself. I could easily have had that ‘event’, and killed someone else along with myself.

    A little fatigue, but the week before I’d had chest pain any time I stood for more than about 5 minutes. It kept getting a bit worse each day, until Sat when I was lying there in the garage in pain.

    Best of luck to you on the smoking, Lily.

    See ya’ll later!

    Yes, in some cases, it does. I went down to a 25% ejection fraction before my little bilateral pacemaker/defibrillator surgery (and, IIRC, Cheney had a 22% ejection fraction before he went on the transplant list), so I am just grateful for my life and how my heart has rebounded.

    Well, the Brady Bunch has achieved some of their objectives already. Large capacity magazines for semi-auto weapons are no longer available. Checked yesterday at Midway USA for Mini-14 magazines, and they have ZERO in stock. Not just zero 30 or 20 round ones, but zero 10 or even 5 round ones, even from manufacturers of dubious quality. Also checked LuckyGunner.com for ammo (the only thing they sell, essentially.) They have ZERO ammo in .223 Remington/5.56 NATO. Nothing. Not even the $ 1.00 +/round varmint hunting ammo. CDT has some left, but they’ve raised the price about 150 % over what it was just a couple of weeks ago. I have never seen anything like this before; not in the run-up/aftermath of the last two elections or even the run-up to the old AWB.

    This is going to get ugly…


  115. 116 | December 31, 2012 4:10 am

    Er, “CTD”, not “CDT.” Need more coffee…


  116. 117 | December 31, 2012 5:44 am

    Okay, so I bowed to the current panic a little bit. Or not. Just ordered a couple of HKS speed loaders for each revolver (always wanted to try those, and they’re cheap) and two extra magazines (only 7 round capacity, Moe!) for the LC9. I only have 3 of those currently, and I consider 5 a minimum for magazines for any given weapon. Not really panic buying, as all that stuff is in stock at normal or sales prices, no problem.

    Syria rebels ‘beheaded a Christian and fed him to the dogs’ as fears grow over Islamist atrocities

    Syrian rebels beheaded a Christian man and fed his body to dogs, according to a nun who says the West is ignoring atrocities committed by Islamic extremists.

    The nun said taxi driver Andrei Arbashe, 38, was kidnapped after his brother was heard complaining that fighters against the ruling regime behaved like bandits.

    She said his headless corpse was found by the side of the road, surrounded by hungry dogs. He had recently married and was soon to be a father.

    We’ve been ignoring Islamist atrocities, all over the place. Obama even calls the Ft. Hood shooter a “Workplace violence” act, not Jihad. Jihadis get a pass while law-abiding gun owners are demonized. All part of the so-called “Intellectuals'” war on the West.

    If you had a kid that thought he/she was totally special, better than and different from all the other kids and none of the rules and principles that apply to the rest of the human race applied to him/her, you’d send that kid to a mental health professional. An adult like that would be diagnosed as suffering from Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
