Where has Chip Ahoy been? That dog pic barks for his treatment.
It used to crack me up how the PRC would condemn the west's "running dogs of capitalism" and I wondered why they didn't control the translations better. It just didn't have the same cachet in English that it must have had in Mandarin.
This bridge thing in new Jersey has been a puzzlement for me.To start with: How does congestion on the George Washington Bridge get to be a major problem for the mayor in Ft. Lee?Then: Assuming it is a problem, what good does it do as punishment for not supporting Christie, if it is not known as originating with the Governor's office?But: How can the conspirators in the Governor's office possibly have thought that this was not going to create a big stink and be a big problem for the Governor, if it became known that it originated in the Governor's office?Are these people unusually stupid?Or, what am I missing here?
Fat cats and running dogs.I hope PRC translates well Mandarin. Snuffles gets a home.
Chip is at Lem's place.
InconvienceChecking the Urban Dictionary we find a droll entry(in-CON-vee-ence) n. A situation, for which the "Mgmt" apologizes, that occurs when something is either no longer available, no longer accepted, currently out of service, or has become more trouble than it was before.
Where is Lem's place?
Sid Caesar died. He was 92. My Favorite Year was a tribute to Sid Caesar. But you can see the real deal in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

We're ALL capitalists in this cafe!
Paul Files Lawsuit Over Obama Administration Data CollectionClass action
New post for Sid Caesar, above.
The only way [Obama] can keep ahead of the thundering mass of granite behind him is to issue exemption after exemption after exemption in the hopes of surviving one more instant. What we are witnessing now is the transformation of a financial crisis into a political and finally a constitutional crisis.Belmont ClubSomething for the constitutional law class.
A better translation of 走狗 is "lapdog". Unfortunately, they did a character-for-character translation way-back-then.
This is a wonderfully surprising take from a Texas sports anchor on Michael Sam.
Another thing I do not quite understand is, iirc, the PPACA started out with the aim of providing pre-paid medical care for 30 million presently "uninsured" citizens and undocumented Democrats, but now they are quibbling about whether 2 or 3 million have enrolled, and 80-90% of those are people who had "insurance" until they lost it because of the introduction of "Obamacare"?
The George Washington Bridge is on US 1, US 9, and I-95.The mayor of Ft. Lee has no authority whatever over what happens on that bridge.It would be the New Jersey Highway Dept. and really the FHWA, since the FHWA would provide all, or nearly all, the funding for construction and maintenance, and it is "who controls the gold, gets to rule."
And that is just the beginning. It really should have been quite chancy for even the Governor's office to mess with all the Federal agencies with jurisdiction on, under, and over that bridge!
I got an email saying that I can buy Google Glass if I want to as part of the "Explorer" program. I do not want to spend $1500 on Google Glass, and I will not. But I must say, I am so very curious that it kills me to say no!
