Your Weekend of Weekends.

UnkaWillbur - May 26, 2017

Here' some links to nosh on, to start of your weekend. I hope everyone's weekend is great; me, myself, I'm planning on jumping out of a perfectly…

  • Am I my first this time? :^)

    • Winner, winner, Chicken Dinner!

      😉

    • Edwin

      Hurray for Stephanie. My hero!!

    • SmotPoker

      This abomination shall not stand.

      • Looks for a big stick….lol. Morning Smotty :^)

    Wakey, Wakey. Here is Gymnopédie to start you up in the right mood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-Xm7s9eGxU

    • Wonderful music. But it’s too relaxing for me: I barely got out of bed as it was this morning. LOL.

      • For some reason this one has caught my fancy today.

      • towerofbabel

        I wanted to see if I could influence the tenor of the debate. And, no I couldn’t. Everybody here is irascible and incorrigible. 😉

        • Edwin

          I find some are also inscrutable and obstreperous.

        • We’re a basket of incorrigibles.

  • 17
    • Morning 17 :^)

      • 17

        Mornin’ Steph 😉

    • Edwin

      Good morning, 17.

      Good morning, Unka.

      Good morning, Stephanie.

      Good morning, Tower.

      Good morning, panem.

      • Heya, Eddie old buddy!

        • Edwin

          Hey, Unka.

          It’s Sunday here now. I was sleeping already, but I woke up so here I be.

        • Edwin

          That Edwardian Farm series I posted is done by 2 archaeologists and a historian. I binge watched it. Now I’m watching Wartime Farm and next will be Tudor farm. They are way more interesting than they sound.

    The harvest is over, and now the time has come for me to put in the scientific research, and personal sacrifice to determine if cannabis can kill a human being. Wish me luck fellow travelers…..

    • 17

      Takes guts.

    • Shaykayvah

      Wish I were there to support you.

  • towerofbabel

    I’m going to put out a SteinSign today.

    • cathyx

      I’m waiting for his other statement denouncing hillary too.

      • SmotPoker

        Could be a while. GOTV passed on this video with the claim that it was too partisan despite him never even mentioning another party or person. Weird.

      • towerofbabel

        I’m though listening to people trash Trump without acknowledging the appalling fact that Clinton is the other choice, and this was foisted on the voters. To play along with the lesser evil argument is to tacitly approve of what has transpired. This election is illegitimate and irrelevant.

      • SmotPoker

        I dunno, I bet Bobby D would punch Trump right in the face…..

  • SmotPoker

    Take note that even in his condemnation Pence tried to diminish the remarks by stating that they were made 11 years ago when his master was just a youth of 59…..

    Police Caught Whitewashing DPS Racial Profiling Stats

    Whitewashing tricks the system by padding the stats. Instead of reducing profiling stops, they play the system by altering the numbers. Show more of those profiling stops as a white person no matter what race or
    ethnicity they are. It’s subtraction by addition. Subtract the Hispanic and black numbers by adding them to the white numbers.

    From Toledo to Standing Rock

    The recent decision to call up the National Guard at Standing Rock conjured up images of Guard–led repression throughout US history.

    BTW…Fuck Israel.

      Yes

    ” A terrible warning from US Generals. ”

    On a scale not seen since Korea ? Seriously ? If there’s a full scale war between the major powers it will make Korea look like a snowball fight . WTF is with all of this war talk ? These people are insane !

    • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

      You’re just not seeing the upside to a nuclear war /s fuck them.

      • kreskin

        Guess not .

    • I think the far more relevant quote from that is, “A conventional conflict in the near future will be extremely lethal and fast, and we will not own the stopwatch.”

  • Hope everybody had a good Saturday. Here’s a segment from Redacted Tonight.

    • SpiffyTheValiant

      Hey Stephanie 🙂

    • Shohanna

      Ty, I am surprised he didn’t annoy me at all in this clip, he even made me laugh. LOL That’s a first!

      • I’m curious what annoys you about him? I watch Lee Camp because I think he speaks truth, I don’t particularly find him that funny.

        • Shohanna

          I am not sure.. He just gets on my last nerve usually. His jokes aren’t funny, and I hate the way he delivers the news. It’s annoying.

  • panem et circenses

    Hypocrite. I haven’t touched the site in months so idk, but did they ever rescind the “no calling people Hillbots or Bernie bros” policy at RS? I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that they partially rescinded it.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/70f9b1db4241972cc793aadc24a8a72c11169beb694e8a637218eb25dd246613.png

    • cathyx

      That site has so much shit attached to it, it’s a total joke.

      • panem et circenses

        If you’d have just read her facebook page like I accidentally did because I happen to follow Katie, you’d probably be pretty nauseous. I recommend staying far away, just like her own friends apparently do. It’s pretty much a ghost town where she has to tag people to come argue with her.

    • Edwin

      ??

      I guess that’s the infamous Roxanne. Not sure what’s going on tho’.

      • SpiffyTheValiant

        It’s against the site rules to call someone a Berniebot or Hillarybot or any variation. Of course, Roxy doesn’t need to follow the rules herself.

        • She doesn’t practice what she preaches because she’s not one of the people she’s preaching at. 🙁

          • SpiffyTheValiant

            Yep. Thus a Hillary supporter.

        • Edwin

          I see. It’s like at C&L you’re not supposed to make personal attacks, but it’s OK if it’s “site team” against guests.

      • Roxanne: She actually enjoys putting out the Red Light.

        • Edwin

          Tee hee. I only know the name and have heard a few tales. I guess she’s other people’s Karoli.

    • SpiffyTheValiant

      But that’s okay, for her to do it. :))

  • Could be just about any DNC Veal-Pen web log out there, right about now…

    Can You Believe Donald Trump Did That Thing?My God, can you believe Donald Trump did that thing?! It was despicable! It was offensive! I am furious! I am saddened! I could barely stand to watch the video. But I did watch it… about 400 times (So many pre-roll ads for antacid!) getting more and more outraged with each successive viewing.

  • SmotPoker

    Happy Birthday John, you are sorely missed. Cheers.
