Kick ass on Mondays

10 Oct

Saw this and had to share it with you.

Here’s hoping for an early snow or at least a cleansing hard rain in NYC.

Y’all have a good day.

[Update from TiFW] – Had to share this with everyone:

    I screwed up the title. We kick ass every day.

    wakey wakey

    That piece in the Weekly Standard about the NYC protest is HILARIOUS. They supposedly coming to Detroit and I’m pondering whether it will be worth a visit. I’m thinking it will be mostly union astro-turf.

    The Bill Krystal piece?

    G’mornin, all!

    Occupy Iowa was a great success. Lots of hippies arrested overnight. Seems they have to have a permit to camp out on state land. Ooooops.

    It was fun watching state troopers drag hippies to the paddy wagon.

    TiFW ♥s Iowa!

    Impotent update added – hope ya don’t mind, Roamy….

    Great way to start the day! The update is especially worthy of being stolen and put on my facebook page!

    I believe someone at another blog said it best:

    “Occupy My Work Ethic™”

  8. Jay in Ames October 10, 2011 at 9:35 am #

    Apparently, the problem is that the news just isn’t getting out to us: OccupyWallStreet.com: rdeluca256

    I used to be able to pay my bills with the salary I make (which isn’t that great to begin with), but after years of either low or NO raises, my salary doesn’t cut it anymore. I’ve heard my story told by TOO many others. I’m not afraid of hard work, done it all my life, a strong work ethic I copied from my parents. Republicans (and “afraid of everything” Democrats) have to LISTEN! to Pres. Obama, I believe in him, most of the (normal) people I know still support him. I spoke to a friend in Florida who actually urged me to look into your website, this movement is not being reported on the news or in papers, it’s being hidden by the media!!! I thought this was a FREE country, all major news reported!!! Apparently not, this scares me…

    1-800-WAA-AAAA. Here’s a quarter. Dial the number.

    stinky’s dad – no … it’s this one by Matt Labash.

    great read go now.

  12. Car in October 10, 2011 at 10:14 am #

    I don’t think I linked the first page – thems three pages there.

  13. Car in October 10, 2011 at 10:14 am #

    They should go occupy Obama’s golf courses.

    That would be funny.

  14. roamingfirehydrant October 10, 2011 at 10:32 am #

    #OccupyObamasGolfCourse is now my new hashtag.

  15. Jay in Ames October 10, 2011 at 10:32 am #

    It’s a movement! Like #AlicesRestaurant.

  16. LC Aggie Sith October 10, 2011 at 10:44 am #

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Great hashtag 😀

  17. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere October 10, 2011 at 11:11 am #

    You can get, anything you want, on Obama’s 10th hole…

    Nahh. It doesn’t work for me.

    So I finished “Killing Lincoln” last night. I’ll be putting up a review in the next day or two, but the short version is it gets 5 out of 5 concerts with our piana player on the wall.

  18. LC Aggie Sith October 10, 2011 at 11:15 am #

    I will have to get that book, then, BisW.

  19. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere October 10, 2011 at 11:29 am #

    I was very moved by the account of Lee’s actions in the last week or so of the war, and the description of the aftermath of Lincoln’s shooting is truly unbelievable.

    My daughter owes me a new keyboard – she put this comment on my blog post:
    Maybe I should make a trip to New York and steal a few Mac laptops to pay off my student loans. I’m not greedy – I am the 99%.

  22. LC Aggie Sith October 10, 2011 at 11:50 am #

    Maybe I should make a trip to New York and steal a few Mac laptops to pay off my student loans. I’m not greedy – I am the 99%.

    WINNING!!!!

    And tell her to pick one up for me, too 😉

  23. Stinky's Dad October 10, 2011 at 12:04 pm #

    Thanks, Carin!

    Occupy Fort Worth is going on right now. There’s 18-19 confused people/bums and one loudmouth tool who’s fashioned a bullhorn out of construction paper.

    I say we mace them.

  24. LC Aggie Sith October 10, 2011 at 12:13 pm #

    That’s a pretty pathetic turnout, SD.

  25. Jay in Ames October 10, 2011 at 12:20 pm #

    Iowa got a better turnout than that. Heck, more people got arrested in Iowa (32) than that!

  26. Stinky's Dad October 10, 2011 at 12:55 pm #

    Okay, I got the day off because the jobsite is a mud pit from yesterday’s rain. The rest of the week and week after, I’m slammed.
    Feast or famine; it never changes.

  27. LC Aggie Sith October 10, 2011 at 12:59 pm #

    We get SD to ourselves??

    WINNING!!! 😉

  28. Stinky's Dad October 10, 2011 at 1:23 pm #

    Probably not a good thing. Aggie, why aren’t you on Twitter yet?

  29. MCPO Airdale October 10, 2011 at 1:27 pm #

    YAY Monday! It’s just like Saturday, but with less traffic!

  30. Jay in Ames October 10, 2011 at 1:40 pm #

    Go into reading this remembering it was written by Eric Alterman, who writes for The Nation

    To Test Beliefs, Listen to the Other Guy’s

    When did your dad become a Republican?” That was the question with which my 13-year-old daughter dutifully reported she had been greeted the morning after parents’ night at her school. What had I done to deserve this?

    Well, the previous evening I took a look at the proposed reading list, which leaned, believe it or not, heavily communist. I swear I am not making this up. The most right-wing people on the list — not including Joe McCarthy and Dick Cheney, whom I assume will not be taught sympathetically — were Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama. The furthest left? Well, it’s hard say. Paul Robeson? Angela Davis? Mumia Abu-Jamal? Michael Moore? It was like a “Saturday Night Live” sketch version of what Tea Party-types think about Upper West Side Jews. So I asked the teacher a Republican-sounding question: “What would you say to a parent who wanted his child be to exposed to a conservative point of view?” (Actually, looking at the list, I would have settled for a liberal one.)

  31. LC Aggie Sith October 10, 2011 at 1:42 pm #

    Aggie, why aren’t you on Twitter yet?

    Because brevity is the soul of wit, and I have no soul… 😉

  32. Jay in Ames October 10, 2011 at 2:26 pm #

    Someone stole roamy’s hash tag

    *deleted tweet. sorry roamy!

    I’m gonna need a gubmint grant to replenish my supply of these darn things…..

    Well, my goodness – you can’t expect the malcontents to show up and protest on their day OFF, can you?

    They will only show up if it’s a work day and they are being paid overtime to be there….

  35. Jay in Ames October 10, 2011 at 2:42 pm #

    I’m gonna need a gubmint grant to replenish my supply of these darn things…..

    I’ve got an extra, I’ll send it to ya. You’re gonna need an extra one, for the ISU – A&M game on the 22nd.

  36. Stinky's Dad October 10, 2011 at 2:48 pm #

    Teresa, the protest was pitiful. I made fun of them.

  37. LC Aggie Sith October 10, 2011 at 2:49 pm #

    You’re gonna need an extra one, for the ISU – A&M game on the 22nd.

    Nah…we actually like ISU.

    the protest was pitiful

    Take any pics??

  38. Jay in Ames October 10, 2011 at 2:55 pm #

    Speaking of pics, how did you get the camera at the right angle for your pics at H&B, aggie?

  39. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX October 10, 2011 at 2:58 pm #

    I’ve got an extra, I’ll send it to ya.

    No, no, no – I want some of that sweet taxpayer cash-ola; I DESERVE it!!!!!!

    Check out some of these lines, pretty funny.

    JINX!

  45. Jay in Ames October 10, 2011 at 3:02 pm #

    That’s just creepy, right there.

  46. Stinky's Dad October 10, 2011 at 3:03 pm #

    Some of them are funny as hell.

    I got here first, James! MOM!!!!!!!!!

  47. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX October 10, 2011 at 3:04 pm #

    My troll is back – poor thing; reading comprehension is not his strong suit. I’m guessing he doesn’t have school today.

    He’s also not 1/2 as clever as he thinks he is – he thought DD#2’s comment was REAL, and offered to let her use a computer for free if she wanted to come up there.

    Ah, well – I guess I can toy with him for a little while, much like the cats do with mice….

  48. roamingfirehydrant October 10, 2011 at 3:07 pm #

    Jay, that’s my real name on Twitter. Delete that, if you don’t mind.

  49. Car in October 10, 2011 at 3:08 pm #

    Someone stole roamy’s hash tag

    I guess it was an obvious joke.
    lol.

  50. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX October 10, 2011 at 3:09 pm #

    I got here first, James! MOM!!!!!!!!!

    Both of you – OUTSIDE!!! Run off some of that excess energy before you come back in here.

    *sigh*

    I hate it when the kids are out of school…..

  51. LC Aggie Sith October 10, 2011 at 3:13 pm #

    That Twitter link is hilarious 😀

  52. Jay in Ames October 10, 2011 at 3:15 pm #

    I didn’t even pay attention to who had posted that, roamy. Sorry! I thought it was someone else!

  53. roamingfirehydrant October 10, 2011 at 3:18 pm #

    What’s even funnier is that Jay just connected with me on LinkedIn.

  54. LC Aggie Sith October 10, 2011 at 3:18 pm #

    Wow, J’Ames…

    Observant much? 😆

  55. Jay in Ames October 10, 2011 at 3:19 pm #

    Haha! Guess I should actually read who posts that stuff, huh?

    I went “Oh look, someone already tweeted what roamy said earlier!” Didn’t even click in my addled brain that it was you.

  56. Jay in Ames October 10, 2011 at 3:21 pm #

    I even knew it was your name, which was completely apparent as soon as I read it the second time.

  57. LC Aggie Sith October 10, 2011 at 3:25 pm #

    I just gave the Heimlich maneuver to my sheltie.

    My day is complete.

  58. Stinky's Dad October 10, 2011 at 3:34 pm #

    So the other day, Patton stole a sheet of aluminum foil from the trash that Kelly had cooked some chicken on.
    Now the black helicopters can’t see his poop.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

    SD, reminds me of the time my SIL’s dog ate a bunch of Hershey’s kisses with the wrappers still on. Very Christmassy.

    You should totally offer some of that to the local #Occupy crowd.

  64. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere October 10, 2011 at 4:24 pm #

    I just put a special update, just for Rutherford, on my post from yesterday.

    Your “sippycup banger” description is right on, BiW.

    Well, crap…
    Either I have put my camera in some mysterious spot, or somebody got into my truck and swiped it.
    Bummer…

    Guess we’ll have to wait for BiW to wake his west coast ass up!

  75. LC Aggie Sith October 11, 2011 at 10:36 am #

    The very least he could have done was email the password to us last night. Sheesh…
