So how come the Patreus scandal didn't break until two days AFTER the election? Hmmm.
And when is the intelligence committee going to start investigating Benghazi? Hmmm.
Because the government amuses itself by intentionally giving you conspiracy theorists something to talk about from time to time.

Pellen,
Paula Broadwell publicly leaked sensitive and classified security details related to the Benghazi annex.
Namely, that enemy combatants were being warehoused at the US mission there. And that the United States and its allies were attempting to funnel weapons out of Libya and into Syrian theater of conflict via Turkey.

Well, that would explain it.
Hey did anyone read about the gay guy in the keys that committed suicide over obama being relected? Or the lady who ran over her husband for the same reason?

Aisle, my friend put her elderly mother into a special home for dementia patients. That was three years ago and she was stressed. Within a year, she was able to laugh at things instead. She said you kinda have to see the humor in your mom peeing in her shoes then telling you "Someone is coming into my room and pouring water into my shoes."
I"ll have to tell my mom about htat... ;-)

i'm laughing hysterically at the idea of her giong out to start the car herself... we told her we'd take care of hte car "later" and "wehn she feels comfortable getting around teh new neighborhood"...

apparently teh "neighborhood" is a 20' radius from her room's door. She hasn't been off the floor but once or twice, to go to church downstairs. i really don't htink she's been out of hte bulding at all. she's ALWAYS complaining about how tired she is and how annoyed she is about "not beign peppy anymore". i don't think she always remembers taht she has cancer, let alone taht it's terminal. but if you ask about doctors, she'll start bitching about one in particular who she saw as part of the testing and diagnosis.

she was antsy for cash last night... told her she had $x dollars last week, waht happened, did you take everyone for dinner? she still had $x dollars! she told me she's used to having more cash on hand, to which i replied that i know she used to go grocery shopping with cash, but she's not doing that, so where's the money giong.... didn't really get an answer to that (and didn't expect one).

day by day.... we laugh and poke fun behind her back to keep some sort of sanity, and we're working on settign a routine of visits and supply runs; this is different and a challenge to my mom and me too...

It IS kinda suspicious that everything doesn't happen when Fox news wishes it would happen. I think that time is, quite possibly, nature's way of keeping everything from happening at once. I might be wrong though. If there is a God, it could be he just likes effing with them.

On a more serious note, we now know who takes care of a General's privates when he's off duty.

A little excited. The bf found out I have Friday off, he is going to take it off too, so my next 3 days are going to rock. Tomorrow night we are going for dinner and some live music, Friday we are going to sleep in, then head up to Hot Doug's (duck fat fries!) and beat the line, then we're going to do some neighborhood exploring, then a dinner party at a friend's for her birthday, the to a bar for games, Saturday I get my new couch and bed, then out for football, then going to see Stephen Lynch at The Vic. If you don't know who he is, go on YouTube and look up If I Were Gay. He's hilarious and a decent singer too. Even Sunday will be fun, the bf's condo is having yard day, we're going to rake leaves which apparently leads to burning leaves and beverages by the fire. I love fall.

Except he wasn't off duty.
And I didn't hear this from Fox news, so way to demonize an organization you know nothing about.
Thirdly, I will not believe the timing of this is mere coincidence. This is the type of story that can unseat a president, especially of it relates to benghazi.
But go ahead and keep thinking everything is fine, there's nothing to see here, your government will take care of everything.

He's a retired General so, he was off duty for that. He was a spy at the time so, I'll refer you to Bond, James Bond for the sexploits allowed in that occupation. Bond, at least, had a license to do that. Maybe our CIA only get learner's permits?

The problem with unseating this president is that the same folks who want to do it for Benghazi, RIGHT NOW(!) are the same folks who wanted to impeach him November '08 to January '09...before he was actually president. Four m-effing years later and none of you people comprehend that impeachment is a process, not a conclusion. You might recall Bill Clinton was impeached. They did NOT take him out and shoot him. He kept his job and is still quite popular and well thought of in politics. He's the only ex-president to be invited to a convention in this century! The BS from Fox about Benghazi is as stoopid as "Fast & Furious" and means as much as internet petitions regarding secession. After this fails, Fox will find something else to jazz up the ratings.

Riiiiiight. Because you don't demonize anyone without less-than-complete information, do you?

we don't know yet... that's low on the list of priortities to deal with. it's not bothering anyone right now ;-), so it'll get to hang out by itself in the garage, perhaps until after the funeral. we don't need to liquidate assets to keep her where she's at.

i was abso-fricken-lutely stunned at some of hte prices high mileage cars of teh same vintage are getting... i googled, KBB'ed, and Edmonds'ed to see waht's out there, and holy crap. 100+k miles and still asking near to $5K!

A few friends told me "don't clean your place, it's going to the bank, it's not like you're getting checked out for your deposit.

But I can't do that. I'm cleaning as I go. Everything is getting a damp rag or a good scrubbing or SOMETHING. It's easy when nothing is there.

CHecked out the paint last night and today -- the bedroom is kinda pink (ick) at night with the ceiling light, but today in the natural daylight (I opened the blinds), it's a lovely deep lilac color. Nice. Kitchen is okay -- blech blue countertops, formica, oh well, I get a gas stove, so I'll take that over nicer countertops any day.

Now I'm on the hunt for a kitchen cart on wheels, with a *cutting block/workable surface*, under 36" high. It's not easy. 36" is standard height. I've found three at shorter heights, but were way too small or had something else severely wrong with them.

I'm well aware of the process and remember Clinton, but thank you.

Your paranoia of fox news is similar to the right winger's paranoia of Obama.

So Jasper just got a job offer at the company where my friend A works (the one with the controlling boyfriend). Half of me is happy for him and the other half is wondering how in the hell I'll ever move on if my ex works with my best friend. She's in the office and he'll be in the field, and his territory is the area in which he lives, not near me or A, but still....
