The Widdershins

A little mid-week this and that

Posted on: September 17, 2014

autumn leaves-scenes

Good Wednesday to you Widdershins!  While Fall is not quite in the air here in the South, promises have been made by the Wx Gawds that we will receive a dose of it by this weekend with some lows possibly in the high 50s at night and thankfully, the humidity going down.  It’s the little things we can be thankful for, no?

To be completely honest to y’all I have no idea what to write about for this post.  Is it because nothing is going on in the world or in the U.S.? Oh hell no, not at all.  We might be going to war against ISIS or is it ISIL?  The name seems to change from speaker to speaker.  We might decide to arm some rebels that are supposed to be against Syria’s Assad which makes them good rebels I guess but I’m not sure if that will enable them to help fight ISIS(L) or only Assad and his troops.  We’re not putting “boots on the ground” indicating no insertion of U.S. troops into this mess, but what about the pilots that are flying planes over the ISIS-L?  Are they not flying into a combat situation with the chance of being shot down and definitely not over “friendly” territory?  Of course they are.  When the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff testified at a Senate hearing today he certainly implied that yes boots on the ground could become necessary.

America’s top general opened the door Tuesday to deploying U.S. ground troops in Iraq against rampaging ISIS extremists — a step President Obama has repeatedly ruled out.

Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Senate committee he would recommend such a deployment if the President’s new strategy of expanding air strikes against the jihadists was not successful.

A White House spokesman said a short time later that the President “will not” order U.S. forces to return to a “combat role.”

“If we reach the point where I believe our advisers should accompany Iraqi troops on attacks against specific ISIL targets, I will recommend that to the President,” Dempsey told the Senate Armed Services Committee, using another name for ISIS, also known as the Islamic State.

But enough of that.  I’m just mad that good ole morning schmoe called Hillary basically a prick tease for the way she’s been going around the country on the book tour and has now just gone to Tom Harkin’s “Steak Fry” in Iowa, yet will not announce just yet whether she is running for the Presidency or not.  Here the schmoe below going off on his rant and then at about the 6:38 mark in the clip, dear sweet “Meeka” tells the control room guys to have a reporter go threw her raw footage and basically scrub Hillary out of it.  There are times I really want to slap “Meeka”, well for just being “Meeka”.

But thank Gawd for Jon Stewart.  Dear Jon was able to take down the schmoe and properly slice and dice him.  Good for Jon.  Morning schmoe goes off on these rants on a somewhat regular basis and I’m wondering if the weekend just extended itself too long, or if he’s just got a whale of a hangover that day or something.  Anyway, Jon was able to catch schmoe in almost the same exact “prima donna” mode that he says Hillary’s in and I loved it!

Okay folks that’s all I’ve got today.  Just short and sweet.  It’s a completely open thing so talk about whatever you wish in the comment section below.

‘Tis fall here, sort of. The highs are dipping into the upper 80’s.

Well it’s 84 here but the humidity has dropped down to 49% and that helps quite a bit.

I might get close to that if I turn my dehumidifier up some.

Here’s some possibly good news from Rachel Maddow. I don’t think those NBC embed things work on wordpress.

Well, I for one am glad that the congress critters in the House have found something constructive to do while they are in session. 🙄

Well…it’s not just the local police depts. that are getting the free goodies from D.O.D., now it’s the school systems in some places that have decided they need a good MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicle along with some M-16s.

Could come in handy in case chemistyr class goes awry.

Never seen one go that badly.

Jeez. Jonathan Dwyer has just been arrested on guess what charge. His back up is Chris Rainey who has two previous assault charges plus that humdinger at UF when he threatened to kill his gf via text message, He got a whopping 2 game suspension for that, but has since been cut from both the Steelers and Indianapolis due to the assault charges.

@10: I think ole Rog is gone.

We saw that Jon Stewart bit. It was great. i cannot believe these jerks. Why would anyone want to announce they are running more than two years before the election? That seems stupid to me. And these morons act like she “owes” them her immediate decision. She owes them nothing.

We had a heinous heat wave this past week, with the first hot nights of the summer, but thank god its over and it is deliciously cool outside. I’ve hardly slept the past five nights.

Thanks for the Rachel M. link Fredster. That is happy news!

@13: Let’s hope that’s indicative of something good.

@12: I was soooo pissed watching that segment with him 👿 And then he says something like “yeah how good was it with Bush and Clinton back then? Well, it was Bush-Clinton-Clinton, then Bush-Bush and it was the last Bush’s two terms that did everything in Joe! And besides, no one else has “announced” yet so why should Hillary or for that matter, Jeb Bush?

Glad you got some cool weather. We’re still going to be in the 80s during the day but with much lower humidity and the nights may get just downright cool…hope, hope!
