Stuff on my desk,

A Mobster, a Lobster, and a Tosser

Leahy Stink

Can you smell the burning irony?
Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens
Sen. Patrick Leahy (record) says the American people are at risk of being controlled by their government due to the expansive surveillance powers of the National Security Agency.

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” the Vermont Democrat and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee told host Chris Wallace that the nation’s lawmakers must act to return control of the government to the people.

“I think that we are going to maintain our ability to protect the United States,” Leahy began. “That’s extremely important.”

“The concern everybody has is allowing our government to have such a reach into your private life, my private life, and everybody else’s, that we are, we have the government controlling us instead of us controlling the government.”

“And that’s what both Republicans and Democrats are joined together on the Hill to try to change,” Leahy concluded.

Earlier in the program, Leahy suggested that vie [OMFG]...

What Raylan said ... plus— that Leahy would even acknowledge that the nation's increasingly becoming a full blown police state* tells us that Democrats are smelling smoke from those myriad brushfires across the country.  I wonder if they ever think of Mussolini hanging upside down?  Srsly.

Confusing Stuff

Stuff That's Too Confusing

ME: r u using IE?

Yes, of course!


ME: It's getting harder and harder to get stuff to work with IE along with FF and Chrome.  I'm guessin that Google (who owns Blogger) is purposely fking with IE so as to drive people to Chrome.  The irony of course is that's what Microsoft did with Netscape to kill them off.  I'll try to solve it as soon as I get in the proper mood. Thanks.

ME: Is it fixed?

Suplize Party


Hectic weekend.  Our kids threw a suplize retirement party for their mom, and some of it even surprised me.  They somehow found a very good friend whom we'd lost touch with, and he showed up.  One of our sons flew in from Holland (and had to leave for Russia the next day!)—so no way in the world we figgered he shows up, but he did.  She was totally and 100% surprised and the party lasted two days.  Woot Woo.  Her payback for being the best mom (and wife) in the world.
