Cinco de Mayo – Open Thread

Happy Cinco de Mayo. Here in AZ this is a big deal and I have lots of family friends coming over for stacked tacos, cerveza frio, and swimming so I hope all you enjoy your day.

A couple of things on my mind – if I came out as a heterosexual real estate broker, would I get a call from Obama? If I lied about the cause of death of an ambassador and admitted not doing my job and reading cables from an embassy in a perilous region, would I be considered a leading Presidential candidate for 2016? If I just made stuff up about Obamacare, abortion and the Presidents taxes, could I get a job at MSNBC?

Happy Sunday all!

    Here’s another question: if you throw out enough red herrings, will that substitute for a valid point?

    • dbschmidt May 6, 2013 / 11:44 am

      Does calling anything a “red herring” make it a red herring?

      • rustybrown2012 May 6, 2013 / 2:46 pm

        Answer to the last two questions: no.

    If it weren’t for the Mexican victory at Puebla on May 5, 1862, Napoleon III could have stepped up supplying the Confederate Army in the State with aid, prolonging the Civil War in the U.S. or even turning the tide, thus splitting up the country into two polarized adversaries instead of the completely unified democracy we now enjoy.

    Stop laughing.

      completely unified democracy REPUBLIC we now “enjoy.”

      Not exactly supplying bozo, Napoleon was attempting to sway England (and Europe) into recognizing CSA as a a legitimate government.

      “It is (our) interests which compel France to sympathize with the Confederate States which have led our banners up to the walls of Mexico. The recognition of the Southern States will be the consequences of our intervention . . . which will consecrate the final separation and secession of those states from the American Union.”

      The invasion was predicated on the war between the states, and the defeat was an ancillary footnote to that war. I’m not sure the recognition would yield the victory France wanted for the CSA, but it would have changed the dynamic.

        Global Warming Will Force More Women into Prostitution
        Monday, May 06, 2013 12:31:19 PM · by John Semmens ·

        Representative Barbara Lee (D-Calif) warns that global warming will lead to an increase in sex-for-pay. As Lees sees it, higher temperatures will force women to wear skimpier clothing in an effort to endure the heat. More scantily clad women will induce more men to approach them with indecent propositions. The persistence of horny men and the lure of easy cash will be irresistible. Lee admitted that she wasn’t sure what could be done to avert this calamity, but thought that “we ought to be looking at possible options. Do we enforce a stricter dress code like some religions do?

        Have you heard? CBS is reporting on Benghazi. After all these months the LM is reporting. Amazing! This may be the beginning of the end of Obummer’s career as a no-account, good for nothing community organizer.

        SeeBS could run video 24/7 of Barry throwing puppies into a wood chipper and his adoring groupies would not bat a collective eye.

        “He didn’t really do that and it was taken out of context and you are racists and Mitt Romney’s wife rides expensive horses and there were no WMD…”

      Eric Holder says Feds Will Ignore State Laws and Enforce Gun Grab

      Attorney General Eric Holder has written to Kansas Governor Sam Brownback (shown), informing him that the Obama administration considers state attempts to protect the Second Amendment “unconstitutional” and that federal agents will “continue to execute their duties,” regardless of state statutes to the contrary.

    Just wondering, Cluster, if you came out as a homosexual real estate broker there in AZ, would you get many calls from anyone?

    • Amazona May 8, 2013 / 3:00 pm

      rico, why do you ask? Is this something that would matter to you?

    No more racist rhetoric. You have been kicked off the blog in the past for this and it will happen again. Any such reference will result in the post being deleted and may result in going back to the no-pitchfork rule that came about because of this kind of bigotry. //Moderator

    Update: Following the comment, above, Majordomo Pain then attempted to link to a brimstone web site featuring nudity, profanity and more unacceptable rhetoric. This has resulted in the brimstone crew being banned from further comment on the blog. //Moderator
