USP .45: Weren't libs going on about "Bush is going to reveal Osama before election X" for years? Oh wait, I have a Fark account and saw it constantly.


No one but the lunatic fringe, if anyone.

Now Limbaugh says a "wild theory" which is "off the top of his head" is that some other group possibly used the discovery of Osama for their own agenda and it's butthurt central around here.

It's so unlikely that he probably didn't need to mention it, but he has a few hours of airtime to fill on a daily basis.


This is farking unbelievable, yet not really unbelievable. Obama did with a year of intelligence and an order what Bush couldn't do by destroying two countries before finally giving up. But you people will not give him anything. Nothing. Not even that.

I think Rush should interview some of the members of Seal Team 6 and see just how easy an operation it was.

USP .45: You're acting like 3 Bush terms couldn't possibly have produced Osama. And you're acting like if Obama was elected president in 2000, he'd have absolutely bagged Osama in his first term.


Since Bush admitted that finding bin Laden was not a priority, I doubt a third term would have made a difference. And I don't know what Obama could have
accomplished in his first term, but I am pretty sure he would not have diverted the bulk of our military capability to Iraq, a country that had nothing whatsoever to do with the 9/11 attacks.

Carbonite has a good, legitimate product. It's saved my ass on a couple occasions. I'm disappointed they sponsor Rush, but I'm not going to stop using their product because of ideology. That's something Teahadists do.


I'd drop them and I would make sure they knew why. I boycott several companies just because of their corporate practices. Shaping policy with your consumer dollar seems like a sensible strategy for me. I don't have a hate on for these companies or their employees, I'm just not going to indirectly fund Rush's hate speech.

Bhasayate: Smirky the Wonder Chimp: That's an insult to catfish. Besides, some of them are cute, intelligent (for fish) and quite charming.

Word. We just got a 29 gallon tank, bought a few really small catfish, like the one in the pic you posted. They are fun and amusing fishy goofballs. Always "nom nom nom" on the bottom of the tank. Then, for apparently no reason, they decide to engage in super fast synchronized swimming, either back and forth or up and down. It's amazingly fast, and looks super silly, because they seem to waddle their entire bodies in order to move around. They are just so damn wiggly. Complete goofballs. My favorite two fish at the moment.

Just started the tank. The other mates are 3 danios, a gourami, and a red platy.


Awesome! You've got a really good mix, unless you made the same mistake I did early on and got a three-spot gourami. I found out the hard way that those are hideously aggressive for small fish. The little dwarf gouramis are pretty and well-behaved, though.

Cories are little imps, and they'll also learn to hang around the front of the tank at feeding time and beg whenever someone comes close to it. They love dried tubifex worms, too.

I really should have put a picture up of some striped raphaels instead of a Cory; they're cuties. I had a bunch of them I rescued from a bare tank where they were huddled in a corner trying to hide under each other, Then I found out that the reason they were being displayed in a bare tank is because they're incredibly timid and are absolutely terrified of light and open spaces, and if you put them in a tank with plants, rocks and gravel, they'll do their level best to find a hole to hide in and won't come out except when you turn out the lights at night. I put them in my tank and they promptly vanished for the next year, when I found them all hiding in various hollow logs while I was giving my tank its annual cleaning.

Lost the entire thing when I moved :( Had to give it to a neighbor, and her house burned a few months later. I was in mourning for weeks. This has been the longest stretch since I was 10 when I didn't have an aquarium at all.

Yes, that is a wild theory. It assumes that Bush and Co. were competent, and actually willing to do the things needed to get Osama, like fly to where Osama was and grab him. Which is ludicrous. Since, they refused to go after A.Q. top people when they had the chance.

The target was a meeting of Qaeda leaders that intelligence officials thought included Ayman al-Zawahri, Osama bin Laden's top deputy and the man believed to run the terrorist group's operations.

But the mission was called off after Donald H. Rumsfeld, then the defense secretary, rejected an 11th-hour appeal by Porter J. Goss, then the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, officials said.


Silly Libs, thinking Bush and Co. wanted to get Osama and were competent.

I think what you fail to realize, and what the Republicans have failed to realize, is that we are simply whores. I mean that literally. We are in the business of "servicing" our clients, and we have found a willing 'John' in the ignorant masses of the American Right Wing.

And the fact that the Republicans haven't realized this will cost them the election. The vast middle-class of America are disgusted by the constant bile we keep spewing. They believe we do speak for the Right. And so they, the 'Silent Majority' are repulsed and revolted and will vote Obama back in office.

And we don't care. And we won't stop 'servicing' our clients even after the election. Why would we stop? We're making good money telling people exactly what they want to hear. We are Great Whores!

Actually, i do think AlQaeda may have timed this to coincide with the election. Obama has wrecked their shiat - and the Bush administration was the best thing that ever happened to them. If I were them, I would love to have Mittens win, and bring in his team of Bush-era retreads.
