Bangles – Walk Like An Egyptian
For Humanity’s sake…
What’s on your mind tonite…?
Walk the talk. Helloooo, CT.
Hi CT, bg!
Congrats, bg…! How are you doing tonite…?
Aloha, newt…! I went to watch a hockey game today and football game broke out…! 11-10…! wtf…? ;-)
It has been lovely warm weather for a few days, but we are gonna be clobbered by cold and some snow starting tomorrow for a few days. Brrr.
Which game? I didn’t see any hockey today…
Btw, If ya’ll watched the Pro Bowl today, those dark skies looming above Aloha Stadium spanned the whole state today…!
Gotta be that tropical climate!
Where’s Suz these days, btw?
Oh, I had that coming…
The NHL All Star game in Charlotte NC today…!
Team Lidstrom 11 - 10 Team Staal
Sex, drugs n rock n roll don’t kill the vibe, CT, what’s on YER mind?
Love that tune!
You’re in Wash. St…?
I confess, I haven’t had the set on anything but CNN or MSKabelTown in a week.
How is everyone? I’m anxious about the world.
Aloha, CE…! Snow on the horizon again for Ohio…?
Hi Chris, are you still getting snow? It’s fading here.
The Egyptians seem to be All In. Nothing will stop it. They are going for broke. Incredible courage.
I’m wondering if those were green silk boxers thrown at one of them…? ;-)
I’m anxious about the world.
That comment hit home with me. I’m betting we’re not the only ones that are a little anxious over this moment in history.
Perhaps on Tuesday…gosh the world is still freezing at 13 degrees!
Everybody take care. I have to be up early, so I am just driving through tonight.
Still and clear here tonight. Have you been watching Downton Abbey on PBS? So wonderful1
Carter is saying it’s earth shaking, and, I saw that protesters are now demonstrating in Northern Sudan and Libya…!
Every week it’s something larger.
I’d rather travel!
Criminy…no stars for the All Stars!
Sounds like it really does take a whole team…
Aloha, bg…! ;-)
Yes, I’m really enjoying it.
Aloha, Funnydiva…! How’s your neck of the woods…?
Nite bg, take care.
I’m with you!
newt! This is crazy!
Did you watch the clip? About 45 secs in somebody launched a pair…
Chilly and raw…’bout normal for the time of year. Fine with me, we’ve had more than enough frozen crap this winter.
Off to watch Downton Abbey, I guess! I need a break after last week (family stuff) and this (Egypt stuff).
Goodnight and all the best to All Pups.
Oh . . . .
My bad, I did NOT watch clip.
Still confused and NOT tittilated . . .
landed right on her mic. stand. cracked me up!
We were so upset at the end! Almost to the point of yelling! Why can’t Mary and Matthew work this out!!! And now, WWI.
You know what, though – it isn’t exactly a silver lining, but…
Gabby Giffords’ recovery is one shiny bauble in this otherwise terrifically chaotic start to 2011.
…Where’s Suz these days, btw?
She’s been attending her soon-to-be GrandDaughter’s Baby shower…! 8-) However, tonite and monday nites are my normal nites…!
I still heart Bangles, Brunettes, Blondes n rock n roll!
Dang CT, I watched the clip!!
Lovely young wimmens n their talent, yah sure you got that right.
Scientists discover Anubis was really a Fire pup: “Egyptian jackal is actually ancient wolf” (Jan. 26, 2011)
Aloha, Mz…! That was an interesting article…!
On CNN’s State of the Union this morning Hillary Clinton said this: “We are on the side, as we have been for more than thirty years, of a democratic Egypt…”
Now, the question is is she lying or is she so ignorant of U.S. foreign policy as it relates to Eygpt that she actually believes this nonsense? You tell me.
That is certainly as stupid a remark as any Republican has made in the past few days.
And if this country had any sense left or any sense of shame, a remark such as that would result in a widespread call for her resignation.
tres cool mzchief
I almost went with this tune tonite…
For What It’s Worth…
Has anyone heard of any anti America threats amoung Egypt’s protest?
Good evening, DancingKid. Welcome to Late Late Night FDL!
And I have been watching pretty closely.
Aloha, DancingKid… Welcome to LLN…!
You might enjoy this…!
Glad you liked it. I am also pleased to see animal conservation activity in African and Asia. There are several cheetah conservation programs as they used to be more prolific in those areas. The ancient Egyptians has a good relationship with them.
Aloha, kking…! Only disgust at our hollow gestures and American made Tear gas canisters…!
Like Hillary said on meet the press this morning The People Have to much imformation.
Hiya CT, pups! Busy day. Strider continues to improve. I’ll start taking him on some longer walks next week. Ms ET wants to get another dog from the shelter. She feels that will help him keep moving.
21 F, blowing less than 15 knots. Snow coming to Wasilla.
Heck, I’ll give into temptation:
Anything in there about Harry Reid’s genetic relationship with invertebrates?
I have more information than I can possibly handle, but I want to decide how I get deluged.
Gerado was talking about the anti american threats.I’ve been watching every where I could fine anything and saw nothing about anti American.
He’s starting to again coo when we pet him. He hadn’t been doing that since around Thanksgiving when the (now removed) tumor started rapidly growing.
I don’t like to give the animals a bad name by comparing them with the humans. The humans are in a class of their own I think.
Joe Miller still asking for money!
Aloha, ET…! Great news about Strider…! 8-)
Oh snap…! ;-)
It’s been a day! Peace out, folks.
I don’t know Strider, but I feel like I do.
Is he on antibiotics or steroids>
Pleasant dreams, mz…!
As I mentioned above, I have been pretty glued to CNN and the other one. Nothing. Not from a protester or a ‘spokesman’.
But I have heard tell that Fox has it ratcheted up pretty high, so I think that counts as threatening.
I’m an American think I can handle the truth and would like to know what’s wrong with more knowledge.
Aloha, CT. He’s finishing his antibiotic regime. No steroids.
I live in the anti-knowledge capital of the USA – Wasilla. The library just bought its 4th set of the Left Behind series, as the three sets they have are getting worn out.
Our “long duration snow event”, as the national weather service terms it, has started. A coating of white on the sidewalk & drive, with possible accumulation of 7″ by tomorrow night. Getting kind of tired of the stuff ….
It looks like the other shoe is about to drop…
From Bloomberg: Egypt’s Banks Risk Deposit Run as Week of Violence Hits Economy
Hey Sweetie…! MinneSnowta is living up to it’s rep, eh…? Your snow blower must be getting a good workout…! ;-)
Thanks Lurk…! ;-)
i was just reading about Left Behind over at TV Tropes tonight whilst perusing the Author Avatar section:
“The authors of the Left Behind series are terrible about this, as they combine very obvious author avatars in the heroes (Rayford Steele for Tim LaHaye and Buck Williams for Jerry Jenkins) with raging Canon Sue complexes. This gets really, really hilarious when the authors get things blatantly wrong due to their limited understanding of reality (Williams, supposedly “really physically fit”, is about ready to pass out after a two mile walk through the streets of New York – something that the overweight Jenkins probably would find uncomfortable).”
I just tuned mine and welded a crack in the chute. Our peak time for snow is yet to come, with the optimum day for snowfall being February 4th, which this year will be the day Palin announces her exploratory committee at Reagan’s ranch.
yeah, i’m real glad we bought it. And even gladder that so far Daughter has been the one to operate it *g*
So you definitely think she’s gonna run, eh…?
Of course. She has no choice. If she doesn’t people will quickly lose interest in her.
Once again I’ve got to truly thank McInsane for spawning such a monster….! 8-(
Ironically, from what I’ve heard it was a choice between my ex-gov or your’s…!
I’d heard that too.
Several serious questions, setting aside the possibility that she can win – she can’t:
Does she know Rove has her on a to-do list of things to clobber in the coming months? I can’t see how she doesn’t see that…
Does she know that the RNC is essentially a front org for Rove/Gelispie’s GPS, and GPS is where the money is?
Wouldn’t it be smarter for her (OK, that answers itself) to remain King-Maker for as long as she can, then refuse to run with the money in the bank?
Howdy neighbor .. I just wanna dedicate this song to the Witch of Wasilla .. her day of recconin’ is a’comin’ ..
I read a bunch of them. I just couldn’t believe they made so much money for writing such crap. People who go by what that series said would strike Jesus down when he told them to “Fear not.” That’s all they got is fear.
Interestingly, Xinhua has this story…
Hundreds of judges joined the mass anti-government protests in Egypt’s capital Cairo, which continued into its sixth day on Sunday, Qatar-based Al Jazeera reported.
Aloha, tearloch, how’s BC tonite…?
Good evening all .. thanks for hosting Tut .. hate NHL all-star games .. love women who can sing and dance and play like they iz from Cairo .. :)
Blame it on their Amygdalas…! ;-)
All is well .. went from 10C to -28 in 3 days .. climate change??.. what climate change .. the weather here is acting like a Democratic Blue dog fer chrisis-sake ….
People aren’t interested in her as kingmaker, they’re interested in her going rogue, so to say. She’s already all but announced she will run. I truly believe she not only thinks she can win, but that she believes God will make sure she does.
I cracked the cover on one, but laughed so hard, the book broke in two.
Yup .. God would have to strike 200+million Americans dead but whatever it takes … lol
I trust your take.
Here we go.
Yup .. Mr. Hiatt has a song for every occasion .. an American treasure he is ..
eveing, CT, firegods
Nobel Peace Prize nomination for WikiLeaks founder?
OSLO : The vibrant protest movements across the Arab world, Russian human rights activists and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will all likely be in the running for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, observers say as the deadline for nominating candidates approaches.
good eve ..
Congrats, newt…! ;-)
It would be nice to get real news in the USA not the speculation.sounds like a scrip there working from.Aljazeera News is closer to what we had in 1966 thru watergate.
Geez, would that ever be a statement that rox the small-minded folk to their very core .. if that happens, I swear, I am gonna trim my beard ..
Obama has invited Elliot Abrams and other neocons the the WH to help him on the Egypt thing. Getting more reassured about his judgement every day. s/
Aloha, PPD… How’s your side of the Pacific…? ;-)
Good thanks, how’s everything in paradise tonight, CT?
be well all .. there has to be a mornin’ after .. and every day is a new day .. and tomorrow IS a brand new day .. unquote .. sleep at peace when you get there .. g’nite
Fundies control the GOP Primaries and unless someone else can make the Fundies feel all jiggly inside she can probably take Iowa. Huckabee let out on Parole a nut who killed several cops in Seattle Sarah will use that against Huckabee.
That leaves boring Mitt trying to get the Fundy votes? Jeb with the Mexican wife trying to get anti immigrant Tea Bagger votes? Newt trying to out crazy Sarah they might split the crazy vote Haley Barbour splitting the racist vote?
Who cares Sarah gets the biggest chunk of the Fundy vote in the primary and the Fundies are the GOP’s biggest Primary voters.
I agree with Newt she can’t win the general election. I agree that Karl is after her. I agree that the Karl and the entire GOP leadership want her gone. I am waiting for her to realize her campaign is filled with GOP spies from other Presidential campaigns leaking stuff about her.
I don’t think we came up with her recent affair rumors I think they did we can’t get close to her.
Sarah I think will cause a GOP civil war alpha chimps can’t stand the thought of losing to a woman Corporate GOPers are finally going to face Fundy GOPers for the soul of the party.
This could be fun.
Did you see this ET…?
Security forces demolished the illegal Beduin village of al-Arakib for the eleventh time on Monday morning.
I wrote a post about the 6-7th time it was razed…! 8-(
Sleep tight, tearloch…!
Aloha, TCU…! Nice to see ya here at LLN…!
The political infighting is gonna be hilarious…! Pass the popcorn, ba-bee…! ;-)
Newt I think your both right logically your right she can’t win but as kingmaker she has options even the VP job.
ET is right Sarah don’t care about logic she wants to run.
Unless unemployment goes up even more Sarah can’t pull off a Nazi style takeover. Thats Sarah’s only winning scenario Beck and Hannity seem to know this also.
Notice they accuse us of doing everything they either are doing or will do. They are projecting their fears on us because they fear we will do it first to them.
Nice to be here:)
The Alaska progressive bloggers and some politicians who I’ve sworn not to name held a party at our house the day Palin quit. My then 92-yo mom called in and said, “Thank your friends for destroying her up there so she can come down here and destroy the Republicans for the next 20 years.”
I wish my mom had had a talk with Obama when he came into office.
I hadn’t, but I’d read your earlier post. I suppose the Israelis might start doing more nasty shit than usual to 2nd, 3rd and 4th class citizens while eyes are focused elsewhere, eh?
another variable is the black box voting.
There is no more vicious emotional campaigner than Sarah on the GOP side. Newt may share her willingness to lie outrageously but he can’t connect to voters like Sarah can.In a GOP primary the GOP have to attack Sarah openly and win. They can’t attack her policy its crazy sure but its what GOP voters want.
They have to attack her personally and that means Sarah will respond personally Cop killer Huckabee toast, Newt divorces his wife in a cancer ward for some tart he divorces later? Mitt is a Mormon and his healthcare plan is almost Obama’s plan? Jeb has a Mexican wife and is a Bush.
Sarah can destroy the GOP with attacks that no Dem could say never mind that she will lie and say worse if pushed.
I just might watch Sarah 24/7.
I don’t think she actually wants to run, but I take ET at his word. Considering his proximity, I am unable to compete, opinion-wise.
That said, IMHO, the very last thing Sarah Palin wants is – responsibility. She has none now, and she has NOTHING BUT responsibilities if she runs.
It’s all glory right now – this candidate wants to fly me out (and the loot and trinkets that come with that) to stump for him/her – sure thing. The crowds, the book-signings, the glare of Fox – baby!
But governing? Answering questions? Competing? I do not see it.
Your mom psychic I just came up with this now after months of putting these ideas together one by one. Your mom knew this back then?
So much room for tomfoolery, Ohio’s ’04 Prez election results were funneled through a Chattanooga, TN server that handled all the RNC traffic…! Still no answers were given about those shenanigans…
Explain you think Karl might fix a primary election or blackmail Sarah’s primary delegates which is possible.
I’ll pass that on. She is a wise elder. Ms ET works in the Alaska bush, mentoring first and second year teachers. She’s met some of the wise Alaska Native elders there and says Millie (my mom) could hold her own with the best of ‘em.
Both Rove and Palin are for sale. If the same group bids for ‘em both, Rove will STFU and talk about how much better than Reagan Palin is. That being said, Palin still believes God will open her doors.
That was my thought too. But ET mentioned the God thing so I can just see her saying, “If God wants me to handle national emergencies He I am sure will put His words in my mouth and guide my hand like totally.”
Neither do I she will bypass the media except for Fox, Questions she won’t debate unless the questions are known in advance she might even refuse primary debates. Governing well she can’t but the heart wants what it wants even if its bad for you.
And lets face it Sarah won’t govern she will do a Bush a 1 page or maybe paragraph summary and then an instant gut decision think Bush without Dick there to actually run things.
As I say, ET has an advantageous (and unfortunate) perspective.
ET How is anyone going to hear the snowdrift queen when she always has her foot in her mouth.
What big money GOPers are backing Sarah who can buy Rove?
Aloha, homeroid…! Welcome to LLN…! ;-)
She’s said a lot of stuff close to that already.
In early 2009, when there was an extreme food and fuel crisis in Native communities on the lower Yukon, she refused to go, or send someone out there. The AK progressive bloggers sent our own guy out there (we raised a couple $K here at fdl!), which infuriated her.
So, she went out there on Franklin Graham’s plane, with Franklin Graham, with cookies, blankets and bibles. She told the people they should relocate, and proposed building hubs (read “resettlement camps”) for AK Natives.
Didn’t become the national story it should have because our MSM reporters can’t handle reporting on nutty religious stuff very well.
I recall that very well.
I wonder where I heard of it?
Her followers are true believers they don’t care if she makes mistakes her lack of logic is the same kind of crazy as her followers. She gets the 30% who held on to Bush until almost the end. She gets the 20% who did hold onto Bush until the end if she runs a very bad campaign.
Assuming a 50% split in voters she just needs 26% to win. Factor in GOP fundies her base vote more in GOP primaries than regular GOP voters and she wins even bigger.
I don’t have any GOP voter primary numbers to guess by how much she wins by.
The Koch Bros and the Fred Malek circle for starters. Alaska’s AIPAC head backs her quite strongly, and spends a lot of time trying to convince his colleagues that she’s Israel’s best bet.
A real class act her…! *gah*
Because others speak for her when that is happening, I guess. Hi, Homeroid!
Aloha CT. Been around all week and not sayin much. You all have been fun this week.
32 rain calm wind. slick ice all over.
It doesn’t much matter what she says, as recent events (her calamitous post-Tucson ‘Q&A’) have proven. Her minions defended her ruthlessly.
She is like a General with foot-soldiers. She points, they follow.
Crap Rove is a Bushy but if Jeb doesn’t run then he will be available. Rove wants to part of a winning campaign but no GOPer can beat her in the GOP Primary. So Rove will work for Sarah or Sarah will have an airplane accident like Senator Wellstone did.
~~~ModNote: Let’s be circumspect with the ‘airplane accident’ references.~~~
Would your name be from Homer, AK, thus Homeroid…? ;-)
Her solders are motivated indoctrinated and convinced her struggle is righteous its like she read Mao on Guerrilla Warfare.
Those accidents only happen to Democrats. When was the last time a conservative GOP figure had such an “accident”?
Is there any sign Sarah knows the GOP elite are gunning for her?
There is always a first time Bush’s dad was head of the CIA when the President of Panama’s plane fell.
Sorry wrote the next comment before I saw your note mod.
When she does go for the run i suspect she will have to ask those folks who talk for her now to please hide under this bus as she aint get’n much help from them of late. But sure enough the base will like hearing drill baby when the oil price goes up next few weeks.
*heh* Do you remember that small airplane crash outside of Cleveland about 2 yrs ago…? He was Rove’s IT Tech for the RNC and was about to testify fully about Ohio’s and several other states official State’s election results…?
I point out that she has ‘soldiers’, but I don’t know how much good they do her as a sitting duck for interrogation, rather than as a moving target (which she most certainly is now).
After the Tucson tragedy, she literally went into hiding for days.
And all due respect to Fox’s power to run one of their own, but it is unimaginable that a national campaign can happen only under those lights. And when the next ‘Katy Couric moment(s)’ come, and it will, the game is up.
Any bets the Koch brothers are worried the Tea Baggers are watching the news and seeing Egyptians demand jobs and overthrowing the government? Any bets they will have Sarah denounce and or lie about about the rebellion?
That was part of the CIA’s takeover of the coke trade. It was shortly after their base of overseas operations HQ has moved from Bangkok to Panama City. Within weeks of the move, heroine prices in the USA skyrocketed and coke prices plummeted. So it wasn’t politics per se, it was $$$.
Not the same thing. He wanted to talk and they had to shut him up.
Oops, I didn’t see the note either…!
They get their TV from FAUX, which I watched a bit this weekend. A different narrative going on there, TCU.
Agreed Sarah will use gas at 3.50 a gallon as proof Drill baby drill was right scary thing is she will be listened too. No other GOPer owns that issue like she does in the public’s perceptions.
Obama dropped the ball when he didn’t create any green jobs now he is open to Sarah’s attack on this front.
It.s a cute term others give us in this neck of the woods.
Maybe that will be what she does, only go on Fox for the entire campaign. Then when people criticize her for it she can just go into Victim Mode. That seems to be a winner…
She can’t win a general election even with Fox and the Koch brothers but can any GOPer beat her in the GOP primaries? Notice at this time 4 years ago the GOP had several candidates announced now nobody wants to announce because they don’t want a poll saying they are losing to Sarah.
Not even Newt with his ego has declared for the race.
far better than being called a Valdezese or Flatlander (Fairbanks). I used to relish living in a town nobody had ever heard of – Wasilla.
nite good talk:)
If she runs, she will not have much choice.
Throughout everything she has done from day one on the national spotlight, she still inserts foot like a ValleyGirl, and Tucson is like a beacon. She is not now, and will likely never be, ready for prime time.
That said, once she declares, she is off the Fox payroll. So there’s that.
Sad, but true…! All the others will howl long and loud, but, she can readily reach her base strictly through Faux Spew…! 8-(
Rove wants a win. Anything that gets in his way – and Sarah Palin is in his way – will suffer a gruesome political fate.
He knows she cannot win. Why on Earth would he let her anywhere that race?
3.50? I wish. You are right and even the gulf states would go for it. Personally i find the woman comic relief. but with enough money behind her any flaw can be air brushed. So she is still scary.
Last I saw gas was at $3.59 a gal here in the Isles…! 8-(
I shall thank ya’ll for a most excellent evening, I shall bid a fond adieu for the nite…! Aloha Oe…! *g*
In the Cordova years we were known as coverts. You understand.
I lived there for three years – 73 to 76. Then I was a POW for seven years.
i’m out too
cheers to Alaska & Alaskans.
see you pups later
Ah no wonder i could not place you. I did not get there till 80.
Margie Johnson called us “the unwashed” But we had the best sauna in town at the cove. Perhaps carry this conversation further one day over a brew. Should i drag myself north.
