Not a record of dominance.
I'll take your word for it... I didn't move to Texas until 2009. How have the Rangers done since then?

It doesn't really matter, I'm a Phillies fan... National League.

Obama still maintains he "has confidence in Holder"....and why would that be? Maybe because this is trickle down thug-style liberal politics at work and it all came from the top.
The bread crumbs everyone is following seem to be creeping closer and closer to 1600 Pennsylvannia Avenue.

Along the same lines, I wish someone would tell me why
former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman visited the White House 157 times thus far during the Obama administration and 118 of those visits were during the period that the IRS was targeting tea party and conservative nonprofits.
That's alot of visits. They must really like each other!
lol-
Why, Lyndi, I'm surprised at you. You seem to be implying that something less than honorable was going on. I'm sure it was nothing more than male bonding, complete with beer and stag films.

Cut and pasted from today's Dear Abby:
__________

Dear Abby: I am a 7-year-old boy in the second grade. There is a girl named “Kate” in my class and she wants to marry me. She sits next to me and she is really annoying. What should I do?

— Not Ready To Settle Down

Dear Not Ready: Start running. And if she appeals to you when you’re about 14, slow down.

<quoted text>However, I am troubled that the IRS and the AP scandals are getting so much press. Benghazi not so much. I believe this is Obama's plan and it's working. Working with delinquents I am well aware of the general/lieutenant relationship. The general stays very quiet and lieutenants are expendable.
Lis, you have a point and I wouldn't put it past him. But if that IS his plan, I think it's backfiring on him. EVERYONE hates the I.R.S., and if there's one thing the press won't tolerate from ANYONE, not even the POTUS, it's interfering with how they do their jobs.

Bernie Goldberg said last night that when the late-night comedians start making jokes about something going on in politics, THAT'S when John Q. Public, begins to sit up and pay attention. I believe he's right about that. I began to notice that same kind of thing back in the Clinton years.(Whether the late-night comedians are responding to or causing the heightened interest, I don't know and Goldberg didn't discuss that either). One more scandal breaking and/or a new, dramatic development in either Benghazi, I.R.S. or spying on reporters--any of them--I think it will start lapping into the public consciousness.

Don't get me wrong, Lis--John Q. Public SHOULD have been very deeply interested in what happened in Benghazi and why, since the event itself. Unfortunately, such is the limp, celebrity-worshiping age we live in.

Yep. They paid tony romo (the little quarterback that should) more monry than Joe Flacco. I think the cowboys are hoping that romo will win another playoff game in the next six years. Not a superbowl, just a first round playoff game. You know, like Russell Wilson did in his first year.
Ever watch the sports channel? Between the cowboys and the new york jets, they get more press than Any other team in football, and neither has done squat in the last three years. I am tired of listening to pundits making hours and hours of excuses for either team.
Tampa Bay is better. Buffalo is better. Heck, even Arizona is better than dallas or the jets.
RGIII is a one season wonder. I think he's going to blow his knee out in the first game of the season. Dandy andy luck is gonna have a sophmore slump, and tannenhill is going to surprise some folks.
Somebody is going to spank geno smith and scold someone else for not changing his diaper in a timely manner. geno is going to quit half way through training camp. Why? Because he's a whiney little bitch.
I'm holding out for the second coming of Montana... Nate Montana, Joe's son. He's eligible for this year's draft. For sentimental reasons I'd like to see San Francisco pick him up, even though SF has a pretty good quarterback already, Colin Kaepernick.

Maybe some of them will start singing to save themselves. If Lois Lerner has dirt on her hands, she may sing an aria for immunity.
She'll have to be cornered "good and proper," as the British would say. But if she has to choose between prison or singing that aria knowing she's protected by immunity, I'm sure the fat lady sings like a canary.

Kap's 'runa dn shoot' offense, or the 'pistol, depending on where you are, is as dead as the wildcat. Teams are gearing up for it all over the league. The one team that supposedly 'relied' on it, Seattle, had only used it in five-six percent of the time. That means for to five plays per game. And they only added it to their arsenal midway through the last season. Heck, Russell Wilson was weaned on a pro-style offense in college. Check this out, from the same set, wilson, harvin, and lynch can run the ball. The two tight ends, Miller and Willson, are great at both running routs, and blocking for the run game. Put harvin in the slot, Rice and Tate on the ends, with marshawn in the backfield, and you can run seven or eight plays from the same set. That is,.. uh, if percy harvin doesn't get too many migraines this season.
And the Seattle 'D'? Forget about it!

Chapter Three, "Drill, Baby, Drill," Palin assigns the following remarks to the Hall of Fame hoops coach:
Our land is everything to us... I will tell you one of the things we remember on our land. We remember our grandfathers paid for it -- with their lives.
Only the quote wasn't by John Wooden. It was written by a Native American activist named John Wooden Legs in an essay entitled "Back on the War Ponies," which appeared in a left-wing anthology, We Are the People: Voices from the Other Side of American History, edited by Nathaniel May, Clint Willis, and James W. Loewen.
Here's the full quote:
Our land is everything to us. It is the only place in the world where Cheyennes talk the Cheyenne language to each other. It is the only place where Cheyennes remember the same things together. I will tell you one of the things we remember on our land. We remember our grandfathers paid for it -- with their life. My people and the Sioux defeated General Custer at the Little Big Horn.
Oops! That's not quite the sentiment that Sister Sarah was trying to convey as she guzzled down sugar-free Red Bull and cranked up Toby Keith's "How Do You Like Me Now?" while jumping on her patriotic high horse at the opening of the third chapter.
There's also no small amount of irony in the quote, given Palin's abysmal record on Alaska Native issues during her truncated term as governor.

PS- Michelle bachmann is a flake and her run for gop nomination proved it, she made as many or more gaffes than sarah palin. She only won her district by 1% point while romney won her district by 20% points in a strong republican district(I know, I work in her district with many who also live in her district, they are prone to vote gop across the board).
Plenty of dems are flakes and undeserving of elected office, but I can only savage the questionable politicians being canonized here....which all appear to be GOP
Hmmm, Natives didn't call it,'The Little Big Horn'. It was known to them as 'The greasy grass' so Both quotes are wrong.
Just sayin'.

Yup, sounds about right. The guy took one for the team, then got run over by the revisionist bus. So what's the rest of the story? Who was driving the bus, and why did he make road-kill out of Judas?
Were you aware that "Judas Iscariot" translates roughly to "Jude Assassin"? Can you imagine the loving parents looking down at their newborn son and saying, "He shall be called Jude Assassin!" There's a small clue right there as to the provenance of the fictional character, "Judas".

To get in the picture, it always helps to cast yourself back to the years immediately following Jesus' death. We know today that there was not one "interpretation" of Jesus' mission and intent, but a whole host of them, often at odds with each other in the particulars. Sects sprang up just as naturally as they still do today. Each had their own view of Jesus, oftentimes outlined in what we now call the "apocryphal gospels". The so-called "orthodoxy" we have today was nowhere near the accepted orthodoxy of the time - that took a couple of centuries of hard work and not a few "councils" to decide - through human debate, mind you - who was In and, more importantly, to identify and weed out the "heretics".

And one of the earliest, and most influential, "heresies" (keeping in mind that's a relative term) were those whom Paul called the "Judaizers". Paul's most recurrent and vicious commentary went toward these who saw Jesus as very much a practicing and devout Jew. Those he called "mutilators of the flesh", they included those who actually walked and talked with Jesus himself, as Paul reveals when he is so critical of the "so-called pillars of the church" (Gal.2), those he jealously and sarcastically calls "super-apostles" (2 Cor 11, 12).

So, it was a sectarian dogfight, and the Pauline faction won out, due to their tireless missionary work and a solid grasp of the importance of writing for posterity, but helped along no doubt by the destruction of Jerusalem and the scattering of Jesus' few remaining Judean disciples.

There is no question that Paul's version was a more universal, or catholic (small "c") tradition, and was more readily acceptable to a wider audience than a Judaic Christianity would have been. But I truly believe that, in the propaganda struggle for dominance, some awful harsh words got printed about Jews in general, and later canonized, that were to have tragic consequences, surely unintended by the author, for untold millions of Jews down through the centuries.

"His blood be on us and on our children!" By God, there's a prophecy if ever there was one.

Benghazi will be front and center again when the House Oversight and Government Reform Commitee has it's final findings. The commitee is currently pushing to get all the relevant WH emails and also the names and access to all the survivors who were there. And eventually the WH will have to turn them over..... they have no choice. The committee has also issued more subpoenas just yesterday to past and current State Department officials in the ongoing investigation and the chairman (Issa,) has sent subpoenas to 10 officials including a spokesman and the number 2 official in the agency.

John McCain & Lyndsey Graham and others KNOW there is some damaging goods on this administration in it's handling of Benghazi or they wouldn't be holding onto it with their teeth but it could be weeks or more likely months before it's completed.
I think it will be worth the wait.

True, and not all that many non-natives are aware of that.

Another story I found fascinating is that Crazy Horse along with approx 1500 warriors, helped defeat Gen Crook at Rosebud Creek on June 17, in a 6 hour battle,(Crook's 2nd try, and 2nd defeat - took him out of the Bighorn battle). But right afterward, Crazy Horse got word of the Bluecoats converging on Sitting Bull's Annual Meeting of all the local Tribes, which he chose to have at LBH. Anyway, Crazy Horse was now at the south end of the Wolf Mtns, about 15 miles from the Wyo Terr. boundary.

So he and his warriors either rode north thru the Wolf Mtns, or did an end run to the west 13 miles b4 heading north for 20 miles to the LBH (33 total). Either way would not've been an easy ride, but he got there within the 8 days to help take down Custer.

At LBH, witnesses saw Crazy Horse riding back & forth in front of the soldiers yelling and urging his fellow warriors on. Numerous soldiers were shooting at Crazy Horse but he was never hit.

Was the monument to Crazy Horse in the Black Hills ever finished? They were working on it 30 years ago when we were there.

Thanks I didn't know it was started that early. I'm a big fan of Amada Pena. I met him once in Santa Fe. His paintings were almost always of the faces of Native Americans naturally found in the mountains. Maybe they're trying to be too literal with the sculpture.
They started the monument before I was born. If they finish it before I die, I'm going to go see it. Wanna meet me there?
