Monday morning headlines

The Seahawks lost. I know, they lost back on Saturday, but apparently that’s still the big local story consuming half the front page of the Seattle Times. Also, police officers and city officials don’t see eye to eye when it comes to the disciplinary system, but anybody who’s ever watched a police show on TV knows that, and buying individual health insurance coverage sucks. Tell me something I don’t know.

Meanwhile, apart from a front page column from Nevada by Joel Connelly (apparently, not everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,) this morning’s Seattle P-I looks more like a PSA than a newspaper, continuing its (laudable) campaign against artificial butter flavor, and issuing a dire warning to pedestrians not to get hit by cars.

Good advice, but does anybody actually work at the Times or the P-I over the weekend, or does nothing ever happen around here on our days off? Sheesh.

In other news, God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him.

    But in private conversations with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert last week, the president all but disowned the document, said a senior administration official who accompanied Bush on his six-nation trip to the Mideast. “He told the Israelis that he can’t control what the intelligence community says, but that [the NIE’s] conclusions don’t reflect his own views” about Iran’s nuclear-weapons program, said the official, who would discuss intelligence matters only on the condition of anonymity.

    For you 24 fans and lovers of torture – a new book is out about one of your favorites, Abu Ghraib:

    “The detainee is then laid flat on a medical litter, and another litter is placed on top of them producing a sandwich effect,” he wrote in Torture Central: E-mails from Abu Ghraib. “The two litters are then tightened together with ratchet straps, creating a vice. The detainee remains crushed between the litters for one hour, with the guard checking every 15 minutes to ensure that the detainee still has a pulse.”

    And stupid Marine tricks too:

    Torture is not the only wrongdoing alleged in the book. Keller writes that the facility was full of children, most of whom had been denied due process. One had been arrested for running toward Marines while trying to retrieve a soccer ball.

    “We have two 12-year-old children who were arrested by Marines and have been in Abu over 9 months,” he writes. “Their arrest record (written by the arresting Marines) simply reads ‘Reason for Arrest: Because we were bored.’

    Baghdad:
    #1: Gunmen killed an Iraqi Appeals Court judge and his driver in western Baghdad on Monday, raking their car with bursts of gunfire before speeding off, security officials said. The ambush took place as the judge was being driven to work and was passing through Mansour neighbourhood, they said. “Judge Amer Jawdat Al-Naeib was killed and his driver was wounded in the gunfire but died soon afterwards,” one security official said.

    #2: two Iraqi soldiers were killed in Zafarania suburb, southern the Iraqi capital, the Iraqi news agency Voices of Iraq (VOI) said. The soldiers, who weren’t wearing the military dress code, were shot by militants on the way back to their homes to spend their usual weekend.

    BAGHDAD – Iraq’s parliament passed a benchmark law Saturday allowing lower-ranking former members of Saddam Hussein’s Baath party to reclaim government jobs, the first major piece of U.S.-backed legislation it has adopted.

    Traveling in Manama, Bahrain, President Bush hailed the law as “an important step toward reconciliation.”

    “quid pro quo” should be a matter of fact, not a matter of innuendo. Timing, for example, is important. If I am a Congressperson, and I do something that is helpful for my constituents, and if as a result of my acts they are pleased with my performance in office ansd elect to legally contribute to my campaign, that’s not ‘quid pro quo,’ that’s just life.

    If, on the other hand, large sums are received by me from one or more of my constituents PRIOR to performing some act that benefits them, then a charge of ‘quid pro quo’ can at least be thought appropriate.

    Did John Murtha performa any acts in return for prior contributions that might be considered quid pro quo? We don’t know, but it didn’t sound like it from the article. As usual, you give us nothing but some vague propagandizing.

    The bottom line is that almost all scientists who actually study global warming are sure that it is happening on multiple levels:

    Glaciers are retreating (at an alarming rate)
    Polar ice caps are melting (both ice caps – not just the arctic as mentioned in the article).
    Average temperatures are increasing

However, due to dramatic losses of Antarctic sea ice between 1973 and 1977, the total sea ice in both hemispheres has shrunk on average over the last 30 years.

    The difference between him and you, though, is that he will accept these facts to get a better understanding of what’s going on with the world while you will scream about a “liberal bias” every time you’re confronted with any fact that doesn’t fit into your paranoid outlook.

    “Those are among the hundreds of changes in the latest Washington Standard Health Questionnaire, a … mandatory health-screening test taken by more than 100,000 state residents each year before they can buy individual insurance coverage. The test is designed to weed out the sickest applicants ….

    “This is the first substantial revision since … 2000 …. It’s shorter … and supposedly better at reflecting actual claims data. But the upshot is applicants who might have aced the earlier survey might flunk the new version.”

    Take care to not let the fur or hide touch the carcass.
    Remove the complete skin of the animal, including the tail.
    Remove the complete entrails of the rabbit using one of these methods:
    Remove the entrails by hand.
    Cut open the abdomen, reach inside and remove all internal organs.
    Remove the entrails by squeezing.
    Apply pressure from the bottom of the rib cage while moving your hand down to the rabbit’s anus.
    Repeat this process until you can feel the entrails loosen.
    Be careful not to burst the bowel or intestine. Doing so will spoil your meat.
    Spread your legs, and hold the rabbit by the front legs.
    With the rabbit facing you, flip the rabbit down with moderate pressure.
    Don’t flip the carcass around too hard, or you might be wearing a hat of rabbit entrails.
    The entrails will exit the rabbit through his anus.
    Let the body hang and cool down for a little while. You can also wash it. The carcass should be maintained at a temperature not exceeding 4 degrees Celsius (39 degrees Fahrenheit)
    Cover the carcass and hide in salt.

    (why did it drop the G.I.?)

    I was wondering this too, so I looked it up.

    http://blog.oregonlive.com/bus.....es_of.html

    The chain started in 1952 with one man selling military surplus supplies from a tent in a field. The ad hoc business quickly grew and became a major Northwest retail chain. But the company says it hasn’t sold military surplus supplies in years and is changing its name to reflect that.

    “We are behind the times,” said Shannon Burley, spokeswoman for the store soon to be known as Joe’s. “We have been focusing on selling high-end and quality outdoor gear for years. The name is not reflective of what you’d find inside.”

    Of course, I also found a few pages out there of people complaining about how they heard some rumor that they changed the name because of anti-military sentiment and won’t shop there again. Sometimes, you can’t win.

    Lee and Half&Half(YLB): Never wore a tin foil or three pointed hat in my life. Thanks for projecting.

    And Half&Half(YLB) even if I had underpants on my head, they wouldn’t have a brown racing stripe on then as yours do.

    But let me know when your wife relinquishes the pants in the household.

    Lee: The difference between him and you, though, is that he will accept these facts to get a better understanding of what’s going on with the world while you will scream about a “liberal bias” every time you’re confronted with any fact that doesn’t fit into your paranoid outlook.

    Sorry Lee, for someone who claimed to not visit threads… It was correctnotright (is this the morphed rightequalsstupid with a softer gentler side?) who didn’t accept the 400 scientists who said the ecogorbasm is a scam when I put their names on this board. It was the 400 scientists who said the earth has been warming for the last 300 years so what happened over the other 200 years before the industrial revolution? I asked him on this. He rejected all this. And of course him and you being 16%ers naturally stick your fingers up each others ASSes to support each other! Then he today for the first time posts “The only debate is over the extent and possibility for mitigation.” This is a great moderation of position. He’s getting closer to me for a change instead of digging his heels. It was Pussy who said where’s China and India. Well now they’ve come around too. He never raised wither of them in his argument.

    Again Lee you missed the data: “These two schools got together and published in the Science, found that the ice sheets of Antarctica, far from melting, actually are expanding by some 26.8 billion tons of ice a year.

    http://www.worldclimatereport. com/index.php/2007/09/05/antar ctica-warming-cooling-or-both/ #more-267

    “Incredibly, if you are interested in Antarctica temperature trends from the present back to 1982, the region has cooled. If you go from present back to 1966, the region has cooled. Like it or not, over the past four decades, and during the time of the greatest build-up of greenhouse gases, Antarctica has been cooling!”

    Lee: Artfart didn’t answer the question in #32. You democrats claim not to be racists, yet you used racist tactics in all three races. That’s why I GIVE A SHIT!.

    And Goldy and his minions still haven’t publicly said headless Lucy was wrong. That’s why I GIVE A SHIT!. Except Darryl who publicly came out and said he’s wrong.

    I wonder if Darcy Burner reads this board how she feels knowing she has racist enablers supporting her candidacy?

    Hey Darcy how is that Goldy support hose working for you.?

    So do I. There are a number of reputable scientists who feel that Al Gore is over-hyping the problem, but there are practically none who agree with you that man-made global warming is not happening at all.

    Then he today for the first time posts “The only debate is over the extent and possibility for mitigation.” This is a great moderation of position.

    How so? When has he posted the opposite?

    As for Antarctica, there are definitely competing studies over whether it has cooled or warmed over the past 40 years, but again, you don’t seem to understand how that’s irrelevant to whether or not the earth as a whole is warming.

    @89

    Post some links. For every link you come up with, I’ll match it with 3 links of how Republicans have used racist tactics in recent years.

    Piper Bill Schneider said it on CNN January 3rd 20:55 after the Iowa Caucii. Looks like CNN took down the video but I had the words cached.

    BILL SCHNEIDER: They’re different. The Democrats are moderate. Only about 16 percent of them call themselves “very liberal.” There’s a cliche that only liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans show up. That’s half true. Republicans are very conservative. Almost half of them say they are “very conservative.” But Democrats are pretty moderate voters.

    Hence I call the HorsesASSHolers here the 16%ers.

    @88 We know CO2 is a “greenhouse gas” that traps heat in the atmosphere. We know burning fossil fuels puts CO2 into the atmosphere. Those who can add two plus two naturally conclude that burning fossil fuels is, at a minimum, not helping the climate. As for the rest of you, well, that’s what dunce caps are for.
