    I had the good fortune to know Straight Arrow Lynch from Yakima whose cars at his dealership had all their cars covered in mountains of ash from the eruption.

    Greetings firepups. I have been too busy to comment lately. I hope all is well with everyone.

    BT,

    I have a black kitten who adopted us on July 3(scared by the fireworks) who now runs our household. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I have 5 again as well as the golden retriever who loves the new addition. I think we need an old fashioned Caturday thread.

    Never.Give. Up.

    Namaste

    Greetings msmolly and fellow firepups. I’ve been offline for a few days but want to share the news that a kitten (jet black) adopted us last night scared by the fireworks. We just lost our beloved 15 year old so we are now a five cat family again.(sigh, I do the cat litter)

    Good morning firepups. Thanks for the post BT. The kids got out of school last week. One is at Wisconsin Dells, and my little peanut has discovered she loves to trout fish. We are primitive camping for three days this week at Iowa’s only state forest(Yellow River Forest) which is near Effigy Mounds(I have an [...]

    Good morning C-S and fellow firepups. I will wave at you from the Decorah eagle nest at about 8:45 CST. My dad was well treated by the VA in Iowa City.(One of the better run facilities as I understand. He had 5 major operations in the last 6 years of his life.) There is absolutely [...]

    Bgrothus warned us yesterday that something was going on. Good thing she didn’t accept ysd’s offer to host OE today.

    Excuse my manners. Good morning ysd and fellow firepups.

    Good morning BT and fellow firepups. My neighbor had a rottweiler that could devour about anything. Beautiful needed rain yesterday and I get to watch my daughter’s year end track meet this PM. I hope the fundraising is going well. This community is very important to me. When I am out in the real world [...]

    I started reading Glenn, Marcy, Jane(along with CHS) about the same time. I have seen very little deviation in their commitment to humanity, to their principles, and to upholding the Constitution since that time.

    So I respectfully disagree. :)

    AS to his contempt I can see. AS to a conspiracy I’ll wait and see.

    Good morning firepups. I frankly am surprised it has taken this long to attack this site, given the revelations from Snowden.

    Someone also suggested putting up some graphics about our fundraising progress.(Do you hear me Brian?)

    How in the hell can I go down with Bronchitus when its 80 degrees?

    Kit,
    I am in for a tenner which is all I can afford right now. It’ll come snail mail sending out tomorrow. (fricken NSA, I know they are behind this.)

    Been reading this site since Ned Lamont. It’s too valuable to lose.

  • Peter,
    Oelwein, the setting for Methland is in my county. We once had 5 factories in my town. Today, none.

    Thanks for this book. I will read it asap.

    Good morning msmolly. Excellent post.(I remember the scene from Godfather when Sonny broke the guys camera at his sister’s wedding. If someone is taking my picture and learning my private history without my permission someone is gonna have their $1500 glasses smashed. This brave new world of facial recognition is way over the line. The [...]

    Sorry I didn’t make that clear. We have absolutely no business in the Ukraine and sanctions are a joke.(I wonder what role our vaunted NSA and CIA played in this clusterf#ck.)

    Have a great day pups. I’m gonna visit the eagles tomorrow. :)

    Good morning ysd and fellow firepups. Warm here for a change.

    I agree the Ukraine situation along with NATO pushing into the Russian sphere of interest has driven Russia to look to the east.

    While I definitely agree that I to am confused by the intercept rollout as well. Where are Taibbi and Froomkin as well? Glenzilla,however, I am willing to give the benefit of the doubt. His book has been an excellent way to get public opinion of the typical couch potato to pay attention to the issue.He [...]
