It looks like you have reverted to hieroglyphs. Which goes along with the Queen Nefertiti resemblance of your right profile.
Q: How do you like stippling?A: I don't know, I've never been stippled.
My daughter also doodles constantly. Or did, until the damned electronics ate all her attention. Who am I to talk though, these days? Shes a fine caricaturist. I wonder what this teenager will be able to do when she's 40.
Listen up, dearie: we Americans do NOT take kindly to people who come here to escape their third-world hellholes, and THEN attempt to impose the same tyrannical and benighted SHIT they fled from on us.IF YOU TOOK AN OATH OF CITIZENSHIP, YOU VOWED TO SUPPORT OUR CONSTITUTION, OUR SYSTEM OF LAWS.DO DID SUPPORT THAT OATH NOW? BECAUSE IF YOU DIDN'T, I EXPECT AND HOPE TRUMP WILL PUT YOU ON A SLOW BOAT BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM.This comment was posted addressed to me on the last night of the convention thread. This is what is wrong with the part of America that is supporting Trump. It does not scare me but it makes me sick in my stomach. I came to this country with two suitcases, and now own couple of millions assets through hard work. I was not a destitute nor a refugee. I come from a good family and I came here with an excellent education seeking intellectual opportunities. I have made my contribution to America in all manner of things. I probably even pay with all the taxes I pay, for the welfare check this person collects. I don't think this person and his ilk should become the face of America. In her hatred of Hillary, I hope Althouse does not fan the flames of people like this guy. Because this person does not represent what is good about America.
A puzzle tree or a puzzling tree?
Mmm, I think pm317 came from India, which is a many splendoured kind of empire, but no dictatorship.
We finally got a thunderstorm that was a thunderstorm last night. 6/10 of an inch which helps a lot, and there are more in the offing for the next week.
Pm317, you are walking into a family fight. This is what happens. You inherit all the subtext and accumulated greivances that you may not fully understand. Then wham, you are blindsided. I am like you, exactly, except I came a little earlier.
Waiting for Althouse to weigh in on voting rights decision issued by a federal judge in Madison yesterday. He is an Obama appointee and a Wisconsin Law alum.
As for what is good about America, or Americans, dont be so sure. I have a different point of view. The angry pensioner who annoys you may indeed be "what is good about America", but from a different angle.
This election's all about accumulated hatreds. It's tribal polarization all the way, and it's just the beginning! If Trump wins it'll probably just be a finger in the dike of the coming wave of Third World brown hordes. Hunker down people. Get your survival gear. Extreme federalization of loyalties is likely, and that's the peaceful outcome. Civil war is the other extreme, and it's not too far-fetched of a possibility. Shoot, just note the Democrat convention for your narrative justification. Michelle Obama's talking about slaves building the White House. I thought O's election was supposed to transcend race. We were going to be one America, not divided by hatred or ideology. Well, not so much, it turns out.
Correction. Wisconsin law tried to prevent voting fraud and election stealing. It was only a voting rights case to the extent the law tried to stop dilution of legitimate votes by citizens.Illegal aliens and felons have no right to vote.
Neither Trump nor Hillary! are going to do the things they say "they will" do. Though Barack Obama has stretched the authority of the executive beyond anything seen before (and would have made Jefferson and his "Old Republicans" reach for their shooting irons), I think the next president is going to meet with a lot more opposition and restrictions on his or her actions.
Federal judge James D. Peterson also teaches or taught copyright law at Madison. He's a former film professor. Also a PhD from Madison. I'm sure a reliable liberal. At least there is time to reverse him before before November.
Biography of a liberal federal judge named James Peterson."Peterson was born on August 18, 1957. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1979, Master of Arts degree in 1984 and Doctor of Philosophy in 1986 from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. After graduation, he was a faculty member at the University of Notre Dame, where he taught film and television history. He received his Juris Doctor in 1998 from the University of Wisconsin Law School, graduating Order of the Coif. He served as a law clerk for Judge David G. Deininger of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals from 1998 to 1999. from 1999-2014, he had been a shareholder at the Wisconsin law firm of Godfrey & Kahn, S.C., where he was a member of the litigation and intellectual property practice groups and lead the firm's intellectual property litigation working group. Additionally, he serves as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Wisconsin Law School, where he teaches copyright law.["
@pm317,nd THEN attempt to impose the same tyrannical and benighted SHIT they fled from on us.Oh, dear pm317, I will forever bless the day that the "tyrannical and benighted SHIT" that you imposed on me was a certain Bollywood music video.Like the British selling opium to the Chinese, I'm hooked for good now. Now, about those lyrics in Hindi....
Typical liberal slickness by Judge Peterson. He starts out describing the sad case of an old black woman born at home in the South without a birth certifcate. He goes on to say he is bound by existing case law. He claims he is not in the position to judge the wisdom of the law, but he then says the law is motivated by RACISM. He then declares the law unconstitutional. Result? Thousands of illegal aliens can now register to vote in Wisconsin. No birth certicate? No problem!Reversed.But I hate to inform Judge Peterson that his activism won't work. Expect a massive turnout from blue collar Dems voting against Obama's third term.
@saint Croix,The people in the House will be voting their conscience and their heart and these votes, made up of words, have meaning and are incredibly important. Yeah, & if those House consciences produce an answer other than Trump or Hillary, who will no doubt both have vote totals around 45-48%, the electorate will "vote their consciences" yet again by taking to the streets, but with the aid of semi-automatic weapons. Hopefully, either Johnson or Stein can pass 5% & get federal funding for next time. But, SC, barring abdication or violence, it's either President Trump or President Rodham Clinton. We've all got to accept that painful reality, buddy.
The Dems are so, so clever. Peterson was an IP lawyer in private practice. Madison has a rocket docket for its IP cases. So why not confirm the guy with relevant experience? Because a federal judge's docket is not limited to non-political IP cases. A federal judge has a full docket. He was a stealth liberal passed off as a technical expert.A person who earned every degree at WI has to be a liberal. He taught films at Notre Dame! Show me a conservative or non-political person who taught films in college. Stealth liberal.Maybe he will learn after he gets reversed in record time.And Jim, spare us next time the wise crack about the length of your magnum opus.
The thing about it is that the GOP can win WI this year. The Dems also can win if they engage in their regular cheating. The key is to stop the cheating; not voter suppression.
From State Journal. "The IDPP is pretty much a disaster," Peterson wrote, later referring to it as a "wretched failure."Jimmy, Jimmy. That's not a sober and temperate judicial decision. That's the language of a political hack.

"Eliminating weekend voting also prevented groups from holding voting drives like “Souls to the Polls”—an initiative that encouraged church congregations to vote in-person absentee after church on Sunday." Could it be that AME churches in Milwaukee are ordering people from the pulpit to vote Dem or is it the Catholic Churches in Whitewater and Janesville? The decision isn't clear. Wisconsin had the full right to reasonably regulate absentee voting. The absenttee voting rules in WI are very expansive; much more so than in Nebraska. Judge Peterson is substituting his personal opinion here over that of the Legislature. Reversed.

Saint Croix wrote: Meanwhile, doing my small part, I will be buying a Gary Johnson bumper sticker and your damn sticker is off my car. As soon as I can find a Gary Johnson sticker that doesn't have his damn veep on it.In another thread you claimed you will vote for the pot-pusher Charles Johnson, and not vote for his running mate William Weld, but you never explained by what magic you'll do that.
"Milwaukee has also had a difficult history with discrimination in education. In 1976—more than 20 years after Brown v. Board of Education—a federal judge concluded that Milwaukee’s schools were illegally segregated. Amos v. Bd. of Sch. Dirs. of Milwaukee, 408 F. Supp. 765 (E.D. Wis.), aff’d sub nom., Armstrong v. Brennan, 539 F.2d 625 (7th Cir. 1976), vacated, 433 U.S. 672 (1977). The case settled after going to the Supreme Court. But the results of educational inequality have persisted. In 2015, high school graduation rates in Wisconsin were 66 percent for blacks, 78 percent for Latinos, and 93 percent for whites.23 PX037, at 16."Assuming arguendo that Milwaukee public schools do segregate, how is that 66%,black graduation rate even relevant?Crazy liberal dicta. Solution. Let the Jesuits run the Milwaukee public schools. Graduation and all performance rates way up and costs way down.
I live in a way, way outer ring suburb with much undeveloped land. Postal carriers never leave their delivery jeeps. Nothing much happens. Pretty safe place, all in all.Nevertheless, it appears that someone has taken it upon himself to launch some sort of guerrilla marketing campaign by placing a great many lawn signs by the roadsides that read: "WE SUPPORT OUR [name of township] POLICE." There's no information on the signs to indicate who is responsible.I'm guessing it's in reaction to the recently reported killings of police officers and (I guess, by extension) the "Black Lives Matter" movement, if you want to call it that.Seems a bit paranoid, presumptuous, and grandiose, if you ask me. I blame the internet, innumeracy, and a misguided sense of priority.I wouldn't mind seeing the guy arrested by the police for vandalism and violation of any number of local traffic safety and signage regulations.I'd support that.
WHO WON'T WEAR DEE REEEEBON????!!1!!!!!!!
My only remaining dog doesn't worry about art or politics. She barks when someone shows up in the driveway. That seems like a job I would like and could do.
Do any of the other guys here think "Johnson Weld" sounds like an operation you really don't want to hear your doctor recommending?
The ignorance of the accomplishments of Bloomberg are astounding. I didn't like when he and the NY city council have himself a 3rd term, I didn't like his BS on sugar and salt. However, he was a good mayor for 12 years. Look at the creep we have now? Bloomberg was a force for good. Fighting to a make teachers and principals accountable, shutting failing schools and opening charters was real change for the better. Of course the teacher's union is still strong and has a champion in DBlasio. Bloomberg also created a company whose research tool is on the desk of everyone in finance and economics. It's a real company not smoke and mirrors like Trump who just licenses his name to things. Bloomberg, the moment he ran for public office and until he left, made his tax returns public. He also resigned from his company and corporate ties while serving as mayor for $1 a year. I can't see Trump doing that for a second. Bloomberg has given much of his fortune away and plans to give it away before he dies. Trump doesn't give away his own money. He makes others donate their money to play on his golf course for charity and even that is pathetic. Bloomberg didn't and won't run for senator, governor or POTUS because he doesn't have to. Trump needs the adulation and needs to tell you his bank account is huuuuge. Bloomberg does not. Bloomberg tries to make the world better. Trump only cares about Trump. All of his money comes from the Russians. So says Trump Jr. So he's willing to destroy NATO to please his benefactors in the hopes of FINALLY getting his name on something in Moscow which had been a bizarre goal since The 1980s. He says he knows Putin very well and that Putin told him how much he admires Trump. Now he says they have never met. He says one thing today and another tomorrow and is not accountable for anything yet the main reason I hear for excusing the horrible human that is Trump over Clinton is the Supreme Court. Why do you think he won't change his mind???? He's way to the left of George Bush! You are disgusted that Bloomberg was a Republican only briefly? So is Trump and do you think if a way to get more famous (which is all this is about for him) and on the only ticket open to him, he wouldn't be to be running as a Democrat? Do you think he wouldn't do it? Trump has no class. If someone says they don't like him, he makes fun of their looks, he makes fun of their illness, he suggests that being a POW makes you a loser (say what you want about McCain, the man was totrtured and imprisoned for 5 years because he wouldn't be released without the others when he had the chance. Do you think Trump, who has only served himself, would make that sacrifice for others?!), suggests Ted Cruz's father was in on the JFK assassination...what does it take to convince you he is horrible?Things have sunk so far, I watched the Democrats put on what could have been a carbon copy the 2004 Republican convention last week. You chose Trump as your nominee. It is your fault. When Hillary wins, it is your fault.
Let me add too that if Gary Johnson continues to attack Donald Trump, and never attacks Hillary Clinton...It will have the perverse effect of electing Donald Trump.You have to lump Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton together. And that's easy to do!Attack them both, as two peas in a pod. Two socialists with big government solutions.
Dr Weevil, your "Johnson Weld" comment made me belly-laugh. Well done!
Gary Johnson was a lousy governor.In his time Manny Aragon and Ray Sanchez ran the New Mexico government.
Well Catherine. You should vote for Bloomberg.
I'm watching two hummingbirds battle over the feeders.
I don't know much about Tim Kaine, but the immpression he makes on me is a bit oily.
Hyperbole. It's what we do.
I always give the saltshaker an extra shake and dedicate it to Mayor Bloomberg.
You chose Trump as your nominee. It is your fault. When Hillary wins, it is your fault. Unless you vote for Trump. If you vote for Hillary, then yes, it's your fault. If you don't vote? That gets a little more iffy, but it still could be your fault if you're stumping for Hillary all the time by tearing down Trump. If you vote for someone else? Still could be your fault, depending on how you behave before the election.But if you vote for Trump, then Trump's presidency will be your fault.
William Weld is a joke.The attacks on Donald Trump, and the failure to attack HIllary Clinton, is embarrassing and inept. Johnson sounds like an authoritarian when he talks about religious liberty and abortion. The more I read, the madder I get. He's as glib and shallow as the big two. I give up. Can't vote this election. Sorry.
"Blogger mockturtle said...Hyperbole. It's what we do."Not me, never ever ever.I immenatize eschaton(s).
You can justify Planned Parenthood's exclusive placement in all schools, doubly so religious institutions, after Hillary demands it to qualify for funds and not be sued for discrimination into bankruptcy, but all those aborted souls will never have the chance to justify it.They were aborted because you think Trump is too vulgar.You are the vulgar one.
There's a ham contest. I like these because you can fire up the radio and just exchange short reports as required without having to think of any pleasantries and see if the radio is working. This one is for islands.So I work a guy in the White Islands off NH, my sequence number 1.Wait, here's a really loud one, and he's working Europeans that I can't even hear. He must have a really amazing portable setup.Turns out he's on Long Island. It's his home radio and he's got all sorts of high gain antennas in the backyard, probably. So he's my sequencer number 2.I believe that gives me 4 points, by the rules.The nice thing is that I raised both with a single call instantly, which means the radio is doing well.That's all you want to know.
Laurence Tribe has an insanely broad definition of "treason"From the Constitution...Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.We've never had the sort of banana republic where the new administration imprisons the old administration. Now, apparently, we are to imprison candidates for president who make jokes on the campaign trail. And this is after Hillary hit the reset button! Speech is treason and babies are not people. Got to love our constitutional scholars!
And you're voting for 'em, Saint!You're in a room with a baby and a grenade and two doors, one on the left, one on the right. You can take the baby to the door on the right or you can throw the grenades through the door on the left. But the baby is smelly and you don't want to touch it, so you're just going to leave the room.
Live grenade, obviously. With the pin pulled.
If you're not following me:vote for Trump or the baby gets it!
Look if I look down on "the biggest meanest most powerful kike in this town" then you will rightfully agree and blame the great Coen's as have I. They know the power of the pictures. They know.How in God's name could I laugh along with Brodin or Clooney?Well, the Catholic Brodin slapping the Commie-sympathist-for-the-moment Clooney character into reality was how.This is culture.I'm not Barton Fink.I expand Undergram Windows, choir-train dogs to bark Beethoven, all before waking to implement the new melody.
"In the interview, Joel Coen says that while he understands why audiences want more diversity in films, he doesn't get why his film in particular would be chosen as a target of criticism. "Why would they single out a particular movie and say, 'Why aren't there black or Chinese or Martians in this movie?" he asked. "The person who asks that question has to come in the room and explain it to me."Later, in response to a question about whether or not filmmakers should think proactively about telling more inclusive stories, both directors balked, with Ethan emphasizing that not every story will involve a diverse cast."It's an absolute, absurd misunderstanding of how things get made," Joel added. "You don't sit down and write a story and say, 'I'm going to write a story that involves four black people, three Jews, and a dog' — right? That's not how stories get written. If you don't understand that, you don't understand anything about how stories get written and you don't realize that the question you're asking is idiotic."'-https://www.yahoo.com/news/coen-brothers-dont-understand-questions-174600871.html?ref=gs"Caesar" was just an answer on the old tv show network showing only game shows. Just after I copy/pasted the above. Amazing.The question was who said "et tu Brutus" or whatever the pronoun's spelling.Amazing.
Show is called "Sale of the Century" on BUZZR network it looks like.Amazing.
vote for Trump or the baby gets it!Gary Johnson's lack of regard for the unborn child is chilling. It's cold-blooded and callous.My hope with Johnson is that he was a principled libertarian. At one point in his career, he had John Hart Ely's position on abortion. He's personally in favor of it, but he's opposed to Roe v. Wade as a dishonest reading of the Constitution.That made my heart soar. It made me happy.But the interview I just saw? It was awful. Not only is he on board with the homicides and the dehumanization, he thinks the government should pay for it. It's like a libertarian coming out for the slave trade.
Trump is the only one defending the unborn child; whether you like it or not, whether you believe it or not, he is your only hope. He certainly has had plenty of children, speaking of walk the talk.I can't believe you're even thinking about this. You of all people! I'm sorry that you find him gross and that he looks and talks like himself instead of say Rod Serling. But he is it. Him, or more shipping containers full of dead babies created under the auspices of a harridan, a mountain climber or a Dr. Jill Stein.Tell your friends. Work the phones. Where the hell are Catholics for Trump? Or other groups, Operation Rescue? Sub rosa may be wise, but now is the time for good men not to do nothing.
Even you, Brutus. Vocative case.
I was going to say, the crib in our textbook was: and you too, Brutus?
The reasons to vote for Trump:1. SCOTUS2. SCOTUS3. SCOTUS
It's raining so I'm not keen to take the dog out before bed; postponed that and flipped on the radio and worked the Azores and England. Still raining. Hmm.I'm surprised how well the radio works, at insanely low power. It's next to the mouse where the coffee cup used to be.
"It's an absolute, absurd misunderstanding of how things get made," Joel added. "You don't sit down and write a story and say, 'I'm going to write a story that involves four black people, three Jews, and a dog' — right? That's not how stories get written.

Trump is the only one defending the unborn child; whether you like it or not, whether you believe it or not, he is your only hope. He certainly has had plenty of children, speaking of walk the talk.Jesus is my only hope! I'm working on a screenplay called Christians. It's a beautiful thing. You want to read it?
I love you, Unknown.It's all good.
I wonder if Pope Francis is going to endorse Donald Trump, who is the only person left in the race who even bothers to pretend that he is pro-life. Boy, wouldn't that be a kick in the ass!
et tu, Brute!Coupe deleted: In old English would be "and thou, Brute!". Many people put the "you" in there, which is really all "thou" means, but there is a distinction.Juliet would not say "where art you?" unless she was being formal. No, two lovers wouldn't be formal, they would use the informal "thou", or as in French and Latin - "tu", not "vous".So Caesar use "tu" for Brute, which is only used for a child or a peer.Film at 11....But English is a Germanic language, especially when it gets as personal as pronouns. English is more akin to German or more closely, Dutch. The Dutch use "je" for "thou" and "Uw" for "Ye" in olde English. I can see "you" in there. But "du" is a fine Grimm's Law equivalent for "thou."
Boy, wouldn't that be a kick in the ass!Pope Francis endorses "Baby Satan"? That's as oxymoronic as the prolife-ration of abortion.Francis will endorse Hillary! because Fyodor Dostoyevsky predicted he would.
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-poll-idUSKCN1092M5Clinton leads Trump by 6 points after Democratic confab: Reuters/Ipsos poll_______Not a touchdown dance, just an observation.
Happy to read script. Do Popes endorse? I'm afraid that I think that your fellow is a Pink, and not too bright, but perhaps his soul is intact after all. If American bishops would say something, that might be helpful.
I see all your deletes. Hope I did not upset you.Trump loves everybody, even the poorly educated. Boy, the elites revealed themselves on that one! His animus is targeted at individuals, not groups. He does not seek to divide us and eliminate all who do not fit into his plan. Look past the rough edges, which Jesus also had, and you may find a lot to like.
Incidentally. Trump has made enough social justice noises that he should fairly not be perceived as a heartless plutocrat. Despite opportunistic vicious attacks, I don't think anyone seriously believes that Trump is seeking office to enrich himself, he's got enough money that he made himself. That's the problem with grifters like the Clintons, they can't stop, and they see everybody else as being the same as them.
chickelit said...Coupe deletedYea, sorry, I thought I was being boring. I always get boring around 10pm...
>Do Popes endorse?They do not, says the Episcopalian.
I see all your deletes. Hope I did not upset you.No what you wrote was spot on. Thank you.My email is email@example.com. Let me know where to send the screenplay. I appreciate any feedback you have for me.
And it's an open offer to anybody who wants to read it! My audience for this work is anybody who is seeking God, or anybody who is having reproductive sex.I specifically intend this work as an uplift for the people who have had abortions. I want them to know, they are loved, and God forgives.
Thanks, Saint, I'll get back to you. By the way, why don't you just post it on the web and provide a link? In any case, I was serious about working the phones and your Social Network. Trump is an amateur to politics and is not equipped with a ground game machine like Cruz's or of course the Donks, so he is counting on the people to support him. So the people need to get out there and do whatever it is that helps win elections. Sort of a guerilla GOTV, real grass roots. I'm not saying stand outside of homeless shelters with cartons of cigarettes, but identify people maybe who need a drive to the polls. Call the Trump campaign and volunteer. Do what Obama said. Get in people's faces. Push.
why don't you just post it on the web and provide a link?Because it's a blueprint for a work of art. It's not actually the work of art. This is a movie that I am going to make. It's a work in progress. I trust Althouse and her blog, and the people who comment on her blog. This is a special place.
I specifically intend this work as an uplift for the people who have had abortions. I want them to know, they are loved, and God forgives.This was sloppy. Let me rephrase.I specifically intend this work to wake people up to what it feels like to abort your baby. And I want people to know that we are all sinners, Jesus loves us, and we can be redeemed.
Let me rephraseI understood you the first time.
Good thing you deleted that, St. Croix. All that good will down the toilet with one comment.
? That said, I can understand controlling distribution of a work in progress.
?If you're asking about my deletion, it was pompous so I removed it.That said, I can understand controlling distribution of a work in progress.You can read it. Just give me an e-mail.Sorry I said, "I love you." I thought you were a nurse down in Georgia. This anonymous thing is annoying.
