That guy at NR misses the point of Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1: It has no point. Its a freeking film for tweens and teens. Why so many damn seniors and adults went to it was because they thought it was about Obama (Prezzy Snow) running roughshod over the populace? I don't know but to me it is juvenile and full of the nuances of adolsences more than mature geo-political complexities with a little firepoower thrown in to keep us all awake. If you ask Frederick and their friends if they liked it they will say yearh! If you ask them what it was about they will give you the same explication they would give for Batman, Superman, The Avengers, The X Men, etc. "Its about these bad guys who like to kill the good guys who have to go live inside this mountain where they have this neat ammo dump and hangar with these awesome jets that can hover and land anywhere and when they do the good guys have these awesome bows and arrows with warheads on them that can kill the other guys bombers."

Now read this, close your eyes and imagine Bush was POTUS. https://twitter.com/TMZ_Politics/status/536239809602543616/photo/1
My guess is that after all that he still refused to give up the code to the voting machines.
Those MSM network "debates" are not true debates in the Oxford Union sense of debating. But wouldn't it be a hoot to have a true debate between the one parties presidential nominee and his second (the VP nominee) and the same for the other party. They each get 15 minutes to make their proposition as to why they are the best representative of executing and managing America's interests. Rebuttals are also 15 minutes. Unlike the Union no points of order, questions or information will be accepted from the audience or Chairman of the debate. Lasts one hour. A true debate much like Lincoln v. Douglas or Webster v Calhoun. Probably never going to happen but would certainly be more interesting than listening to Stephie and Radditz skewer the questions in favor of the Dems. An example: Chariman introduces the debaters and their respective parties and explains the rules. Debater No. 1 introduces the proposition: Does the Republican Party and its nominees best respresent the interests of the American people in terms of National security, defense and carrying out diplomatic relations while transferring more local governance to the States in accordance with the Articles and Amendments of the US Constituion? He makes his argument and then introduces his opponent who will offer the rebuttal. Debater No. 2 Makes the opposition argument against the proposition and when finished intoduces his parties proposition

BoE, Something different: Witlof or what we call Belgian Endive. Get 6 to 8 heads and cut out the bottoms (which are very bitter). BTW, Belgian Endive is the same as Chickory which in Louisiana is part of their coffee, IIRC. Place them in a roast pan or bake dish. Melt butter, cheese and milk in a sauce pan. Pour the mix over the endive and back until melted. Sprinkle with nutmeg and serve with the best bottle of champange and caviar:)

Today it was 86F and very humid but no rain except early morning TS. So, we decided to BBQ and use the summer kitchen. Burgers and brats with homemade red potato salad and BBQ beans. Sometimes the best food is what makes sense for the time and weather. Nothing better than a good piece of ground sirloin grilled on the barbie with a piece of chedder or swiss placed on a french bun and topped with a slice of tomato, red onion, mustard and mayo. A spear of Bubbies sour pickle and the salad makes it a perfect evening. YMMV. Did I forget the L'if St. Emilion?

Dice up a rib of celery, a carrot and a medum onion all diced and sauté'd in olive oil until translucent and soft. Add a mix of italian sausage meat or a combo of ground pork and beef or just ground chuck (around 1lb or more). Cut up some italian parsley and add it to the mix. Brown the meat and then add 2 x 25oz. finely chopped tomatos. [ I use Pomi in the 25 oz. box]. Simmer on low an covered for 25 minutes. Voila, you have a Ragu. Feel free to add garlic or italian seaonings as you want. I always add some salt and pepper at the end but we like to season at the table and not make a universal savory but let everyone do their own thing. Learned from my cooking classes in Italy to use canned or boxed tomatoes. Serious chefs there don't bother with fresh vine ripe tomatoes - too much time off the schedule. I think Mario Balti here does the same thing.

Redskins OL and RGIII are a joke toinight and don't get me started on the defense. No urgency, no passion, no nothihg. He really isn't that good in the pocket and without his old wheels he is a very poor idea of a QB. But then he doesn;t really have an OL or receivers to ameiolrate his defects. What a waste of draft choices.

daddy has the local Fox ( Sky) 9pm GMT game on. Is Martin johnson still a commentor, daddy? He led England to the last WC in Rugby and always wanted to play OL for an NFL team.

tonto, I have an acquaintance who has in the house in Florida during Our annual Boxing Day to-do diring Christmas when Ford died and drove back unencumbered by state police at 120 miles and hour to run the funeral show. He was the top guy in the WH and he is the one who told me that whatever you hear or believe - we run the show not the POTUS. I believe him. He is now down here, retired and happy to be away from the political BS he had to put up with for 30 years. Fishing!

narc, Because he and his puppet masters know that beyond the trashing in November and his tepid immigration proposal, a racial riot will sink him into the abyss. He needs to make it a non-event in which he appears to be a modern day MLK. Unfortunately, the Secret Service will never let it happen and if they do they better bring more than the anti-sniper team.

maryrose and matt, We are to stupid to understand the nuances of National security and global intelligence, strategic diplomacy. Do not question your others when it comes to adding up 2+2. They know the answer and their report is an absolute confirmaiton of their infallibility. How do you explain the POTUS and SecState standing in front of 4 coffins and telling their relatives that they will get that video maker who made all that happen? They didn't have to go to Dover but they did. They didn't have to blame a video and let the local authorities make a big deal of arresing the maker, but they did. In fact, they didn't have to do anything but call it a terrorist attack and we lost 4 and we are going to make it right. But they didn't. Why does that not bother anyone but they are willing to accept a congressional report in which we were never invited to the hearings? You know why? Because we are stupid.

Pete Carroll beleives its completely okay for the reciever to have to wear the defender like a back pack on passing plays. Most obvious D pass interference I have seen in the season so far.

BoE, In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. One of the most incredibly somber visits is to Ypres and visit the wall of the fallen.
