Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.
I have had the opportunity to put it to the test and it gets a 5-Star recommendation from the IOpian product testing lab.
The candles smell nice too...
No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this Article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President, when this Article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this Article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.
So... consider this:
* Married people can file taxes jointly, as if they were one person.
* They cannot be compelled to testify against one another. An expansion of the right against self-incremination.
* Fiscally speaking they are considered one and the same as far as debt liability and ownership. This is further supported in cases of divorce as mutual property.
Now further consider that Hillary is trying to sell her 'experience' as a ready to go commander-in-chief. During the Clinton administration she acted on the behalf of the President as a special international envoy of the highest order... the President's spouse. The other half.
She most surely advised her husband as his closest council in presedential decisions.
I doubt the Congress that passed the term limitation every saw the possibility of a husband and wife team being able to hold the Presidency for a term longer than FDR's.
So the question is: was she 'acting' as a defacto co-President and will Bill Clinton get a chance to possibly serve, in an influential sense, two more terms?
I guess it depends on what the meaning of marriage is.
Here is an example of how The Big Lie is perpetrated piece by piece until it accepted as fact. I was building a big post about the various kings that have ruled Israel. I really couldn't remember when the dynasty David had created split and which kingdom was ruled from Jerusalem. I ran across the king Rehoboam who was the last king of the united Israel. Then I linked into InfoPlease:
Rehoboam , in the Bible, last king of the United Monarchy, first king of Judah, son of Solomon. Under him the northern tribes broke away from the rule of Jerusalem and set up a separate kingdom (called Israel) with Jeroboam I as their king. Rehoboam's foolish insolence to the protesting tribespeople is celebrated. In Rehoboam's reign Palestine was invaded by Sheshonk I of Egypt. It is also spelled Roboam.
Searching further I find this split took place around 931 B.C. Palestine, on the other hand, wouldn't even exist for another millenium:
The last line of the InfoPlease entry should read :
"In AD 135, after putting down the Bar Kochba revolt, the second major Jewish revolt against Rome, the Emperor Hadrian wanted to blot out the name of the Roman "Provincia Judaea" and so renamed it "Provincia Syria Palaestina", the Latin version of the Greek name and the first use of the name as an administrative unit. The name "Provincia Syria Palaestina" was later shortened to Palaestina, from which the modern, anglicized "Palestine" is derived. "
"The name "Falastin" that Arabs today use for "Palestine" is not an Arabic name. It is the Arab pronunciation of the Roman "Palaestina". Quoting Golda Meir:
The British chose to call the land they mandated Palestine, and the Arabs picked it up as their nation's supposed ancient name, though they couldn't even pronounce it correctly and turned it into Falastin a fictional entity. [In an article by Sarah Honig, Jerusalem Post, November 25, 1995]"
This week we have some special guests offering their most inspiring verses. A debt of gratitude goes to John Edwards for crossing over and bringing us this message from 'The Other Side'.
Sheikh Ahmed Ismail Yassin and Yassar Arafat will now recite a passage that was the inspiration for their lives' work and obeidient adherence to the word of Allah.
[5.20] And when Musa said to his people: O my people! remember the favor of Allah upon you when He raised prophets among you and made you kings and gave you what He had not given to any other among the nations.
[5.21] O my people! enter the holy land which Allah has prescribed for you and turn not on your backs for then you will turn back losers.
Now most guitarist might tell you that a guitar is more than just an instrument. This one is bears a history of 30 years. It has paid for itself several times over in one rock club band or another and even paid for my tution in college so if the house caught fire this would be one of the things I'd take out with me. It is irreplaceable.
I retired it a long time ago and a Thinline Telecaster became my guitar of choice. But over the years I modified it to where it no longer resembles the original guitar. Other than the body the only original piece of equipment is the black pickup in the neck position. I replaced the others with a DiMarzio in the bridge position for an ear piercing sound and a Seymour Duncan quarter pounder in the middle position for a nice defined mid-tone sound. I actually got the courage ot rout out the body to drop a Kahler cam whammy in it so it would mount flush and then yanked the tone pots out and wired all pickups directly to the volume knob. Put and locking system on the upper neck. To get it in tune you just whammy the hell out of it. The worse you treat it the better it stays in tune.
So I have friend I've been in bands with for years and simply my music bud with a studio in Moore, OK and I left the guitar over there so I'd have something familar to play when I was in town. It was there for years. Around February of this year his house was burglarized and the guy took of with this guitar, a small mini strat, his guns, a mic, a camera and all the change on his table ad some credit cards. My friend came home from work and must have scared the guy off because a couple of other guitars were leaned up against the outside wall of the house waiting for pickup.
My friend called immediately and the police were over there. Next day I went into the city to get the scoop. I wasn't mad but felt bad that my friend felt so bad about that guitar getting stolen. The first thing that was appaent was that whoever did this was an idiot. He took about $20 of change from a can and all that other stuff but immediately within range was an $8000 custome built laptop for digital recording and two large flat screens and near-field monitors at $1500 bucks a pop. I figured whoever did this lived nearby and carried the stuff out of the house down the drain canal behind his house. I figured it was a crackhead or just my punks. Not only that the dumbass came back a couple of days later and burgled the house again. This time my friend was awaken and was sitting in his bed with a .357 pointed into the hallway. The guy saw him in the mirror and bolted. He was one step away from being splattered on the wall.
But I told him I was going to find that guitar and if I find the person before the cops he was going to wish the cops had got to him before I did. My friend figured the stuff to be long gone and it would just be a wassted effort. I had already dug throw my music stuff and found the original tag with the serial number on it. So that weekend I printed off a map of Moore-Norman and S. OKC.
Now OKC is flat and the streets are grids. So I went to every pawn shop in Moore and I learned that unless I had the serial number and a picture it was going to be hard to describe the guitar. Went ount on the web and got pics of every piece of equipment on that thing and made the flyer you see sitting by the guitar describing every nick, faded finish areas and cigarette stain on it. Printed 25 copies with contact info. So the next weekend I called the drummer that had played with us over the years because he was recovering from a crack addiction and had been on the streets for a while. And we went looking.
Now it was only a couple of days after the burglary that someone using my firend's credit card account had tried to open an account at the Home Depot in south Moore. The police must have had an idea of who it was because the dumbass had given real info like their phone number. So the police go to the residenc on some kind of a DHS issue and find the credit cards and the guitar case. The idiot lived right down the street from my friend... at the end of the drainage canal ! He was not at home but his girlfriend told the police where he was and they went to the apartment and his dumbass buddy invited them in. They find the burglar and he had crack on him so his ass went to County.
Here we are two weeks later and the drummer and I are eating and I told him my search plan. I figured the burglar had an old beatup car that wouldn't get him too far or the gas money so he would have heading to a pawn shop outside of Moore but not too far. Having grown up in South OKC both of use knew where all the pawn shops were all the way up to the Northside. So I showed him my map and I had it divided north and south down Santa Fe Ave which divides OKC. Then I showed him I had planned to search west of there up to 89th street west. Next weekend it would be 89th east of Santa Fe, Then every weekend move the pattern up tp 59th street and keep doing this until I got to North 23rd before I would give up.
So the place we are eating is right off 74th street( I-240) and Walker( 1 mile west of SantaFe). so we head out and my friend says hey you know there are two pawn shops on Western that are on our way. We go to the first one which is large and I gave them a flyer, all took a look at it and hadn't seen it come through there. If I had a name they could search the database but at that time I hadn't gone to the OSCN website to research the court dockets. So we leave that Paw shop and head south about 8 blocks into a smaller pawn shop. I tell the guy the story and give him a flyer. He hadn't seen it. As we were starting to leave I noticed one of the guys that worked there was talking to the manager in hushed tones. I was about at the door when the guy yells wait... we have that guitar... I freaked out. They couldn't tell us who pawned it for confidentialty
but I called my friend in Moore and got info on the other stuff and the camera and mic were there too. so we called the OKC PD and they said they'd have someone out there. Waited two hours and no cops. SO I left the pawn shop guy my cell number and told him I'd be five minutes away. He called when the police arrived by the time we got there she had left. So it took two months to get the friggin OKC PD to do something. They said it was Moore PD jurisdiction though we were in OKC. Two friggin months to get them off their ass after I had done all the work for them. It took six months to get the guitar that finally ended up in OKC custody and we wouldn't have gotten that if I hadn't got fed up and on a whim was walking through a mall and went up to an OKC police captain soing some kind of a demostraton thing and asked him how the hell I can get someone to go down and get the stuff out of the pawn shop. He gave me a phone number and the lady there had the stuff in two days. To this date We still haven't gotten the guitar case back from the Moore PD and in fact have had to constantly contact them to make sure it doesn't get auctioned off.
I eventually searched the OSCN network and guessed about what day the burglar would have been to preliminary and found him. I know know his name, how old he is, how much he weighs, where he lives, what his SSN is, what his phone number is, his car make model and tag number and his prior arrest. He has a history of drug convictions and possesion of stolen goods. I also know where he's lived in the past and cronies he's been arrested with on more than one occasion. His mother used her house to bond him out. He skipped out of his trial. So now all of his former suspended sentences kick in, he's charged with 2 counts 2nd degree burglary. He is 42 and it amounts to the rest of his life in prison.
Never say never. Can't never could; won;t never would.
Sorry Bruce for taking your pick but hey it is free publicity.
I'll take it down if you want.
You can follow the link to his page and he has booking info, schedule, photos and bio. I asked him if he had thought about going national he said he just wanted to stay regional in MA and RI.
So if you're ever up there and want to be entertained go see him.
Here we find a group of Berkeley freshemen memorizing the answers to their Adavanced Government Studies for the Gifted course final.
** Sorry for rippin off the title but I just happen to be listening to 'The Wall' while I was doing this. Mere coincidence ? Yep that's how it queued.
And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily [sacrifice], and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
Starting at Mark 13:13:
And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter [therein], to take any thing out of his house:
And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
For [in] those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here [is] Christ; or, lo, [he is] there; believe [him] not:
For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if [it were] possible, even the elect.
But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
He suffers from a disease of the brain.
There is no negotiating with him.
Understanding the root cause of his problem will not cure him.
If encountered the worst thing to do is show fear or run, an attack will be assured.
There is only one humane solution.
Kerry supports it.
After running this through the smugness and cluelessness filters what he is saying is essentially ' while we had the Republican view suppressed all was well. Once that suppression came off and their views were allowed into the free market of ideas we found our ideas uncompetetive. So we need to suppress their opinions so ours don't look so clueless.'
Durbin supports it.
"It's time to reinstitute the Fairness Doctrine [...] I have this old-fashioned attitude that when Americans hear both sides of the story, they're in a better position to make a decision." Senator, I have heard your side. I have no choice but to hear your side. ( insert MSM list here. ) I have heard and the picture above is my reaction to it.
Kucinich is throwing a party.
"How in the world did we end up in this war in Iraq when one study said that only three news sources that opposed the war were able to get on the air out of 393. What does that say. Was there an uninhibited exchange of ideas." He did not identify the study. Guess he must not watch much televison, read the papers or venture onto the net.
When the opportunity for presidential candidates of their party to present their positions in the forum of public debate on FoxNews came along they declined. That makes it difficult to believe in their sincerity. I will cut Kucinich some slack here. He was willing to do it but the majority refused. The whole intent of their effort to revive the Fairness Doctrine is to force us to hear something we've already heard on ( insert MSM list here ) and aren't buying.
Thinking people are not interested in a bunch of adolescent crap about Bushitlerburton, war for oil, worst president, evil Cheney and the whole litany of moronic bumper-sticker thin opinions. It is hard to take those types seriously.... for thinking people...
Have you ever noticed that many of the voices of leftist causes are actors and commedians ? It is because the Left in this country is a pretentious joke.
But the thing that really raises my ire is that anybody in our Congress could even consider curtailing the oppositions voice when considering that:
Congress shall make NO law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
