We have, essentially, won. Guns will not be made illegal any time in my lifetime which means that we won't be overwhelmed by physical tyranny any time soon. I think I'll drink to that tonight.
U.S. President Barack Obama and Saudi King Abdullah Tuesday presented a united front against a common enemy: the press.
Abdullah, at the end of an appearance with Obama following an Oval Office meeting, uttered a prayer asking God to spare the two leaders from the wrath of their "friends here in the media."
"May God spare us from all of the bad things they can do to us," Abdullah said sparking laughter from those present. "And may God bless us with all the positive things they can do for us and for humanity."
"Well, that is an excellent prayer," Obama responded.
Each and every conservative politician in America was too busy laughing their asses off to comment.

She's still very ill and can't hold down solid food but, right now, all the tests are coming up negative for cancer. Presumably, the next step is going to be removal of the mass. She should hear about that either later this week or next week.
Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers and all the rest. It means more to me than I can possibly express.
If you missed Cold War cloak-and-dagger skulduggery, the Russians seem to have pressed that button pretty damn hard...
The FBI accuses the SVR, the successor organisation to the Soviet Union's KGB, of running a network of "illegals", described in court documents as Russians who received training in languages, codes and ciphers, invisible writing and counter-surveillance before living in the United States under false identities.
Each of the 10 was charged with conspiracy to act as an agent of a foreign government, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison on conviction.
They were alleged to have met US government officials given codenames such as "Farmer", "Parrot" and "Cat" as well as engaging such tried and tested espionage methods as dead drops and brush passes.
The nature of their work was said to have been outlined in a secret message to two of those arrested: "You were sent to USA for long-term service trip.
"Your education, bank accounts, car, house etc – all those serve one goal: fulfil your main mission, i.e. to search and develop ties in policy-making circles in US ..."
This is strangely worded, so I don't really get it, but, um...
A message from alleged conspirators in Boston gave details about a new head of the CIA and the 2008 presidential election gained from a "former legislative counsel for US Congress".
What the hell?

I need a bit of a lie down.
More soon but I've got to put together a quick facecock...
Oh, you'll care, when I shove the Constitution up your ass, you stupid, smarmy son of a bitch.
You may say: Well who cares what John Hawkins think? Reasonable point – except that Hawkins is the person entrusted by Google to determine who may join the conservative blogads cloud. (Disclosure: He decided that FrumForum could not participate. We no longer qualified as conservatives because we had criticized other conservatives, particularly Rush Limbaugh.)
The cloud is basically where, if you're promoting conservative sites or wares, or want to promote your goods or services to that audience, you can try and become a part of that package of advertisers through Blogads, and sites can choose an ad package that reflects their content.
Hawkins administers that cloud, and knew he was going to have to respond to this at some point, and does so effectively here. Note the, "this may become a story at some point"-type threat from The Twat and his spokesdouche. John's response was great, as is the whole post, that must have been awesome to smack Frum like that directly.
Only one vowel changed and the problem is solved. It's elegant, really.
Some scientists who are way smarter than all of us put together are about to make it possible for you guys to perform your nightly peeping Tom runs and Val-U-Rite smash and grabs a lot more stealthily.
Alex, one of those links I think you don't want to click on.

Up to 1,000 jobs at Bucyrus International Inc. and its suppliers could be in jeopardy as the result of a decision by the U.S. Export-Import Bank, funded by Congress, to deny several hundred million dollars in loan guarantees to a coal-fired power plant and mine in India.
About 300 of those jobs are at the Bucyrus plant in South Milwaukee, where the company has 1,410 employees and its headquarters. The remaining jobs are spread across 13 states, including Illinois, Minnesota and Indiana.
On Thursday, the Export-Import Bank denied financing for Reliance Power Ltd., an Indian power plant company, effectively wiping out about $600 million in coal mining equipment sales for Bucyrus, chief executive Tim Sullivan said.
The fossil fuel project was the first to come before the government-run bank since it adopted a climate-change policy to settle a lawsuit and to meet Obama administration directives.

I say I and we but I am only using that as an example of how I would do things, someone with more credibility than myself would need to set things up. I have no contacts and I have no credibility outside my own deranged fantasies so I am in no position to do anything.
Another thing I would like to set up is a conservative only chat system.
