Honey, I know, I know
I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out
For something new, that means you too
You say you want a leader
But you can't seem to make up your mind

I think you better close it
And let me guide you to the purple light.

You gotta shootem in the head.

FBI guys- that was a joke, by the way- don't believe anything R/V tells you!

Yancey Ward said...

Yeah! Purple light all in my eyes
Don't know if it's day or night
You got me skittering, skittering around
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?

How do the left view women?

"The Left is the woman who wants to have an affair, but her husband is a good guy. She needs to vilify him before she proceeds with her debauchery. She convinces herself & others he's a terrible person. She tells lies about him to paint herself as the victim."

When the deep purple falls
Over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to twinkle in the night
In the mist of a memory
You wander all back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh

Around here, any skittering in the fading purple light is done by the little brown bats, out hunting moths and whatever else might be flying around (not including drones or men in jetpacks, of course).

Even in winter, if we get a few warm days and some moths wake up (stupid moths) the bats will be out, skittering around.

They seem to make no noise, in flight. Bats are strange and interesting, but are full of viruses. Make of that what you will (or can).

Perhaps DARPA is working on training squads of bats to attack and discourage those jetpack guys that like to shoot up and wave at the pilots as they're trying to land their jetliners. It could be very effective, and would offer complete deniability in the event of fatalities.

Looking forward to "Falling back" on November 1st. I hate it when Sunrise comes so late in the day. You got something completely different out of what ACB was saying than I did. I thought she was basically saying in a nice way "Senators need to stop asking what a judge's PERSONAL beliefs are, and pretending that if a Judge is PERSONALLY Pro-life, that means they will rule that way. Because judges make rulings based on Law, not their personal beliefs".

But you may be right. I was upset that she made any kind of speech. She should have just thanked everyone and shut up. I don't need to know ACB's views on politicians vs. Judges. Or on the confirmation process. Just go on the court, shut up, and let your opinions do the talking.

I just hope she'll write clear strong opinions, and not be some sort of Anthony Kennedy drama queen. Kavanaugh and Goresuch have already shown they are egomaniacs. In almost every opinion, they have to write a separate concurrence or dissent, giving us their own special "Smart boy" take.
