Sean penn parying with venezuelan´s money amd courting Chavez.Chavez followers called his new contender a nazi and represented him with pink slips because they think that calling someone gay is an offense.Capriles Radonsky is the converted grandchildren of a couple of nazis camp survivors.
Chavez called him pig among other things.
At the same time Noriega attack the opposition as guilty of wrong behaviour for opposing the populist. A republican asking people to be populist to defeat a populist

Looks like they might have awaited news from San Juan Hill there.

Or Missionary Ridge.

Saw The Iron Lady tonight was was disappointed. Framing the movie with her Alzheimer's both diminished Thatcher, and worse, made for a very slow movie. Wonderful makeup, performances, and costumes.

Anyone else skipping the preview screen when you can actually read the captcha on the first draft?

Speaking of survivors, I was happy to learn that as an active hang gliding pilot, I'm safer than your kids are playing soccer. Now think about that, you hand wringers.

The #1 most dangerous sport is many many times more dangerous than any other (fatal every 2300 plays) but all the rest are relatively safe with numbers 2,3 and 4 being considered pretty safe and routine.

That said we lost 2 people in a couple months last year in my small 200 member hang gliding club, but they were the first in decades. Luck is fickle.

I need to hire a typist if this crap continues.

I'll have one of each.

Dear Lord, I just tried playing the sound for captcha thinking it might help me understand the second word, and it was some confused jumble like someone saying Paul Is Dead backwards and forwards at the same time.

Took me four tries the last time I tried to comment here. This will be number four again tonight.

All to say--wow, I like that bar.

I'll bet that cave diving is more dangerous than base jumping. (But I won't go looking for stats tonight).

"I'll bet that cave diving is more dangerous than base jumping."

I could believe that. I know I would rather jump off a cliff than scuba into a freaking cave. That is just too damn scary, even if it wasn't dangerous which it surely is. That sport takes a warped mind.

This is the bar where Shane and Jack Palance had their showdown (good thing it was a movie, too, or Curly would have wiped the floor...).

But what a lot of people don't realize is that Shane returned to that bar about ten years after the shootout, and he and Jean Arthur ran off together - to lower Wyoming I believe.

Poor Van Heflin, he changed his name to Guerrero and eventually hooked up with a waitress - I think her name was Maureen - back east. But Van became despondent when he couldn't find work as a farmer, so he constructed a crude, homemade bomb (unlike Sonny Bono who purchased his ready-made at the airport) - then bought a big insurance policy and boarded a Trans-Global flight bound for Paris.

Lots of ironies here, too, because Dean Martin happened to be moonlighting as the pilot, while the beautiful Jacqueline Bisset was actually Van's stewardess. Not only that, but Helen Hays happened to be sitting in the very next seat! Anyway, Van somehow wound up in the bathroom where he blew himself to kingdom-come.

Sad story, but one that needs to be told - or what the Italians call "les incompetent"….

Christy, I should have spoken up. My (Episcopal) parish has an Englishwoman who was probably in her 20's when Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister. I was thinking of going to see it and I asked her opinion. She said "I thought it was vile." She thought the depiction of her with Alzheimer's was deliberately diminishing of her.

Just arrived in Delafield, near Milwaukee. Seeing No. 1 son tomorrow; the artist. Not starving, he; a graphic designer by day, a painter by night.

We saw the movie The Artist and found it charming and true to silent films, about which I was obsessed in grade school and high school. The movie described the transition to talkies well, a beautiful coda to the silent era. Most Favored Wife was bored, however; she being no fancier of Chaplin or Keaton.

But who is, anymore?

Fine. I meet your Late Night Tavern and raise you a Fleming's.

I too faced the photographer's nemesis of extremely low light so I compensated by using the wine bottle for a monopod and employing my advanced tact and my highly advanced Bene Gesserit training to suggest politely for everybody to fucking quit fucking shaking the fucking table. It's important to stay delightful when spending time with friends.

As a child I had been told I had a delicate stomach, because I would get an upset stomach after eating. When I was 16 I went to a restaurant and ordered French Onion Soup. It was hot and smelled delicious, and tasted good. That's when I found out I was deathly allergic to onions. After my trip to the hospital, I had to give them up. Mom had to make separate dinners for me. My wife continues to do that. But every now and then, the smell overwhelms me, and I'll order onion rings, or an onion blossom. After I recover, I'm good for, ohh, about a year.

Many people think I'm crazy, but sometimes a risk is worth taking, or life isn't worth living.

My grandmother allowed me to drink her PBR when I was 3.(our little secret) Never much of a beer bitch afterwards. Cold, dark, and malty, and I'm happy.

So Van Heflin played his own skin flute in the bathroom? If he could do that, I'm surprised he left the house.

I love our electoral system we have nowdays. With the english language being so dependent on context, our 2 parties go out of their way to feed us snippets of quotes, point their fingers and say, "See! See! You can't trust those people!". I could piece together snippets of Tingles Matthews saying "President Obama" "is a" "illegal alien", and have as much journalistic integrity as all reporters today.

The funny part comes in when they act like there is a whit of difference between the "parties". It is true that the dem's have the far left wing, and the rep's have the far right wing, but the soft nougat middle is indistinguishable.
Bush as hated by the left for starting 2 wars, Gitmo prisons, rendition etc...Obama is loved by the left for starting a war in damn some African hellhole, I cant remember which anymore, not closing Gitmo, and increasing the use of drones in said wars. Our 2 party system has been infiltrated by politicians, and they don't care about anything except their own power base/re-election. As fast as they can, they are working on making us, the voters, unnecessary for them to stay in power.

I'm thinking of ordering chicks to start a flock down on the out-laws farm. They had cattle but gave them up 2 years ago because they were getting to old to fool with them. Maybe some goats too. And more ammo.

The food Nazi's from that story in NC? They were in my granddaughters school last month. Checking to see if the food in the brown bags was "edible" I guess. If they're showing up in Bufffalo Ky. I guarantee you that they're in your school too.

WOW! Alabama state supreme court suggests the state should ignore Roe V. Wade, in that a fetus is not cancer, or a collection of random cells, but rather a unique and distinctive individual from the mother, and as such, deserves all the protections of an individual. Let's hear one for sanity in the court system!

I'm surprised there has been nothing said of Anthony Shaddid. He attended/graduated from Wisconsin.

Also, the law enforcement-nurtured terrorist who was busted. Great. But I look forward to the day when we bust someone who was not sponsored by us. I'm getting tired of being prompted to cheer for these people we helped along.

Alabama - well, there will always be abortions, that we know. One consequence of illegally illegalizing abortion is of course that more women will be hurt when they try to get abortions that are not performed in doctors' offices. Mississippi has done so much to outlaw abortions, now they will have to go west if Alabama shuts down too. I'm from Alabama. This is not a good thing.

The use of Captcha must have been mandated by Obamacare. Right? Seems to have come around right when the contraception clause kicked in. Coincidence?

We are! Wanting to see The Artist, but the newborn has put a temporary hold on date night. Will havevto catch it on DVD.

Freeman, Congratulations on the new baby! #3?

Is this the sort of captcha used to help transcribe old and damaged texts that are otherwise nonsense? Software cannot read it but the human brain sometimes (1 out of 4 times apparently) can?
