Yesterday was a better day. After several afternoon calls to the cable company my new TV is finally functional. It is a little creepy that somebody somewhere can push a button and control your service. Comcast giveth and Comcast taketh away. DW only snapped at me once and glared a couple times. I’m making progress.

I have way more links than I have room for. Hopefully I choose wisely.

    Poll of Active-Duty Troops: 70% Say NO MORE Boots on Ground in Iraq

    Seven out of 10 of the more than 2,200 active-duty respondents to this year’s Military Times Poll oppose the idea of sending substantial U.S. ground forces back into Iraq to battle the Islamic State militants and their allies. In addition, over the past four years of the annual poll, the percentage of active-duty troops who believe the first U.S. war in Iraq was a success has declined significantly:



    • It’s interesting that the opinions about the success of the first Iraq occupation have continued to drop. I wonder if that’s really a fair assessment. Maybe it’s being influenced by the increasingly hopeless current situation? Perhaps the tangible success has just been squandered?


    • chrissythehyphenated

      I bet that number would change if we had a competent CINC. These troops don’t want to go in under OBAMA. He already wasted so much of their blood, sweat and tears, dammit! We WON THAT F*ING WAR!!!


    • freedom1781

      I bet my life savings that the main reason that number is so high is because of those lousy rules of engagement. I’m so glad that my BIL left Iraq and the Army when he did. I’m 100% positive that he wouldn’t want to be in the military with Obammi in office.

    U.S. bankruptcy judge allows Detroit water shutoffs to continue
    Imagie they have the temerity to actually expect the entitlement parasites to actually PAY for anything?The nerve.
    During June and July, the peak months of the shutoffs, the department collected $1.7 million in money owed. In August, during the moratorium, collections were only $200,000. At the peak, the department disconnected around 900 homes a day, Latimer said.

    NY Post celebrates Clinton grandchild;
    Libs go nuts
    Is the New York Post front page headline and picture of Bill and Hillary holding their grandchild in “bad taste”? I guess it depends on your point of view.

    I don’t know what the Clinton’s think about it, but most liberals thought it rancid. The arbiter of style and grace in the New York media scene, The Gothamist, was not amused:

    Lighten up, guys. I’m sure you’ll get back at conservatives very soon.

    How far can Obama pass the buck?
    “Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.”

    “They” indeed. Obama may be the first U.S. president never to have made a mistake. Obama likes to remind people that he is the one with the pen and the phone, yet somehow, everything is always the fault of “they.”

    Obama hosts dinner for fasting Modi
    For the White House, the answer appears to be compressed avocado with goat cheese and baby bell peppers, crisped halibut with ginger carrot sauce, and mango creme brulee.
    But Modi, who is observing the Hindu festival of Navratri, is in the midst of a nine-day fast where all he consumes is water, occasionally flavored with lime.

    that doesn;t bother the Obamas.Especially the Wookie.Nothing gets in ger way come feeding time.

    Wisconsin Reporter Was Sent to Cover Michelle Obama’s Speech and What She Says an Aide Told Her Had Her ‘Creeped Out’
    Burke and White House staff also told reporters not to talk to people in the crowd before the event.
    At the Burke event, a number of people in the crowd were upset about a lack of seating. Several people, including a woman using two canes, complained that she had nowhere to sit.

    Reporters and photographers were cordoned off in a central area with chairs and tables. Several people in the crowd asked if they could have extra chairs reserved for the media — but reporters were initially forbidden from handing them over. Eventually, some of the Burke staff gave the extra chairs to attendees.

    Among Chicago’s black voters, disenchantment grows with Mayor Emanuel
    Emanuel easily won the majority of voters in every African-American ward in 2011 to become mayor of Chicago, the nation’s third-largest city. Since then, a persistently high murder rate, the closing of 50 public schools and a sense that Emanuel is out of touch have hurt his position and invited a bid from Karen Lewis, president of Chicago’s teachers’ union.

    Because he was Chicago Jesus’ main man,blacks voted for him eagerly because it was like voting for their messiah again.
    Now the former ballet dancing peckerwood is opposed by a 400 pound heap of arrogance and profane snottiness.

    CBS Hillary Clinton Show Loses 1/3 Younger Viewers by 2nd Episode
    The current ratings show that Madam Secretary lost 4 million 60 Minutes viewers and lost half of its younger 18-49 viewers. That’s the demo prized by advertisers and Madam Secretary is going to have trouble staying on the air if it can’t get them to tune in.
    The question is how much money is CBS willing to lose to promote Hillary Clinton?

    Gabby Giffords: Being Victim of Gun Violence Means ‘Opportunity’

    Reporter Susan Page described Giffords as “the nation’s most prominent victim of gun violence,” then asked her, “What does that mean to you?” Giffords responded, “Opportunity.”
    She wears the impenetrable armour of her victimhood the way the yellow dog in the Peoples’ house uses his skin color to ward off criticism.

    Here is CBS This Morning’s Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell stating the fact that there is a “public paper trail” of Intelligence Officials who warned repeatedly about the growing menace of ISIS. That directly contradicts Barack Obama’s claim the Intelligence Community underestimated ISIS. No, it was Barack Obama who didn’t listen to the warnings. He blew it – again.

    T- Minus 36: GOP Begins Breakout From Stalemate
    The Democrats funding advantage has kept them competitive in the critical battleground states. According to a recent media analysis, the number of pro-Democrat Senate ads is up 91% over 2010. Over 70% of the pro-Democrat ads have been negative attacks against Republicans. Comparable numbers for Republicans, or even Democrats in the House, aren’t even in the same constellation as these. It goes a long way to explain why Republicans and Democrats are locked in near stalemates in almost all of the battleground states.
    A fundraising edge lets a campaign buy time earlier in the race, but it doesn’t necessarily allow the campaign to by a significant amount more time in the final weeks of the campaign.

    I get the sense that the republicans would wade through snake-infested swamps to vote in 5 weeks.Democrats?Not so much.Not without the clown Prince running.

    Trouble in Talk Show Land…….and That Didn’t Take Long

    Tempers explode on the set of The View
    Since Elizabeth Hasselback left its totally degenerated into a liberal whorehouse

    ‘I’m so sick of your s***!’
    Rosie O’Donnell took the mic and aired her grievances with Whoopi Goldberg about her ‘on-air snub’
    Whoopi warned Rosie to leave it alone – but she wouldn’t
    Even before The View debuted, Rosie let everyone know she’s top dog even though Whoopi is the official moderator of the show
    Whoopi told her, ‘I’m moderating and that’s how it’s going to be, so work with me babe!

    Repubs to Dems: “Please Like Us – We’re Just Like You!”
    Now a brand new ad campaign has been launched which demonstrates that Republicans are even more clueless about selling themselves today than they were two years ago and four years before that. The pathetic message this disastrous ad seems to be sending on behalf of Republicans is this: “Hey Democrats, please like us – we’re just like you!”

    ISLAM IN THE NFL: CHIEFS Safety Penalized For Muslim Prayer In End Zone
    Reaction on social media was strong Monday to Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah being penalized after kneeling down in Muslim prayer after scoring a touchdown on Monday Night Football.
    <img src="rosie” alt=”” />

    Apparently the refs didn’t get the memo.Muslims can do anything they want.We can’t risk offending them.


    Rosie O’Donnell: Penalizing Muslim NFL Player ‘Propels Us to War’
    Somehow extrapolating from a single penalty in one football game, O’Donnell responded, “Yes. I think as a nation we are. I think that, you know, it propels us to war. You have to rally the country in order to bomb a country that did nothing to you and you need to rally them and so that’s what I think that was.”

    The Northeast, once the nation’s political engine that produced presidents, House speakers and Senate giants including the late Edward M. Kennedy, is losing clout in Washington as citizens flee the high-tax region, according to experts worried about the trend.

    It must never have dawned on them that when you tax people to pay for social programs they’re not going to stick around.
