Thanks for the graphics, though! Some days I feel like Mark Twain in that photo when I watch all of Washington D.C.

Good afternoon, PoliNationals. I’ve got ‘way too many tabs open on this browser, but few of the pages are the kind I usually think to post here. Let’s see if I can clear out a few…
Well, SoS John “Ketchup” Kerry, VP Joe “Two Blasts” Biden, and National Security Adviser Susan “The Video Did It” Rice were just too darn busy today to meet with the defense minister of some backwater Middle-East country called Unreal or something. Kerry, in particular, had a much more important meeting scheduled with a Mega Superstar Gay Goofball to talk about promiscuity-transmitted immunovirus disease.

Oh noes! We’re going to have to completely re-work our vacation plans, now that North Korea has closed its borders to tourists to protect itself from Ebola. Doggone it! Well, wonder if we can book a few nights in Tehran?

Speaking of closing borders:
BULLETIN: BORDER-CLOSING FINALLY IMPLEMENTED!
Yes, a federal judge has placed a travel ban on conservative author/film maker Dinesh D’Souza. confining him to San Diego.
Don’t you feel safer now? Less threatened? I know you do.

Urk, that last should have been “Travel ban implemented” not “Border Closing,” I guess. Oh, well. Blew that joke.
I hadn’t been to Weird Universe for a long time, but picked up on it again recently. Something fun there nearly every day.
Battle of the Vintage Chocolate Drinks
Name your poison! Bosco, Ovaltine, Borden’s or Tootsie V-M?
Okay, fellow people from the Last Millennium, did you ever hear of a Tootsie Roll entry in the milk-additive market?
Tootsie V-M? That was never marketed in my neck of America! And where’s Nestle’s QUIK, huh? They left out my drink. I’m being victimized! The Democrats should pass me a law or send me some money or something.
cth: “And where’s Nestle’s QUIK, huh? They left out my drink. I’m being victimized!”
If Quik was mentioned in the comments, does that count? I’m not sure when Quik came along. But wasn’t Hershey’s syrup always around?
I liked the Strawberry Quik too much for a while.
Here’s one I’m going to post just so I can close a tab. Pay no attention.
Joan Rivers. When she “outed” First “Lady” Michael the Tranny Obama, my very first thought was, “she’s dead.”
I don’t usually watch Mark “Illuminati Conspiracy” Dice, but I watched his take on River’s death. Dice basically said, she was old, death in surgery happens.
Well, I’ve read that some doctor started doing some exploratory surgery that wasn’t scheduled; that is not that unusual, I suppose, but it made the procedure more complicated than expected. Then comes news that her death was because of a “procedural error” during the surgery. Oopsie! Just a tiny error. Her oxygen was cut off.
Some professions, doctors especially, we’d like to think of them as professional, dedicated, upright people. But, money combined with threats can be mighty influential. What price “procedural error?”
By the way, it’s my understanding that Mylar is much better for hats than tinfoil. Don’t accept cheap imitations.
Good tip on the hats, thankee. Joan and Andrew can compare notes with Vince Foster and all the other victims of Leftist thuggery. They must have a really big corner in Heaven, what with all the folks who died in gulags and stalags and whatnot.

c/o Cuz BD, who writes, “one of the most rewarding things I get to do is think up and commission mini-documentaries on how Oklahoma schools are rescuing kids — and how school choice policies would enable them to rescue even more kids.”
I left out a close-quotemark on the Cuz BD link in my previous comment.
I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned on here about Cuz BD & wife’s late child, Ann Marie.
They knew she was in bad shape early-on in the womb; when she was born with her insides out, it was worse than they thought. The best doctors and nurses struggled mightily for weeks to save her, and a circle of prayer radiated world wide, but Nature would not cooperate. That beautiful baby girl was tied up with tubes and tape from the beginning; her mother only got to hold her close, free of all that, at the very end.
I mention this because her birthday anniversary was earlier this month, and if you don’t mind having your heart wrenched by some deeply personal words, I thought some might appreciate Ann Marie’s mother’s letter to her little girl on her fifth birthday.
Thank you for sharing. She was a beautiful baby! I like this: “There is one thing I know. I know that Anne Marie is perfectly whole and healthy in heaven. I know, as so many people have told me, that she is in a better place. I know this. I know it so deeply. And yet, I miss her. ”
I read a Christian author writing about Heaven, forget who it was, but I loved what he’d concluded from his Bible study. He said God isn’t just going to make thinks all right in Heaven, in a “we won’t mind any more”, but that we will somehow “get it all back.” He specifically mentioned the loss of children, that he believed parents would get to have all those years again.
It makes sense to me. Heaven is eternal. Why couldn’t we get to relive or do over or have what we missed out on?
Would parents, who died decades after their child had gone on before them, have the chance to raise that child, picking up basically where they left off, meaning the time of the child’s resurrection would be dependent on one or both parents’ survival, or did they miss that opportunity and the child grew up in the meantime, raised in the heavenly nurseries and schools?
Doesn’t that beg a dozen theological questions! When do we rise? Does everybody rise at the same time, or some earlier, some later? days later? an age later? everybody raised & judged at “the End of Time”? Do we rise in perfection (or not), or do some have to take Purgatorish remedial classes? What is a soul, separate from the spirit in our minds, and when and how do we actually acquire a soul of survival value?
Fortunately, in idealizing the afterlife, regarding the salvation of souls, we don’t have to know the details on how, or when, or what. We know the why, we know the Way.
