With this election over, and while we're wondering if we'll need the ropes

due to the lame-duck session, we now return to some of our general WHAT?
A Zimbabwean was has been killed by a pride of lions while he was showering in a camp in the country's north.
Og? You still there?

Well, you keep threatening to arrest people at the demand of the palisimians, you're going to have fewer visitors.
Israel has expressed anger that, in the past, ministers and senior military figures have had to cancel visits to the UK because of concerns that pro-Palestinian groups might use the courts to seek their arrest over Israeli military action in Gaza, or this year's raid on a Gaza-bound aid ship in which nine Turkish activists were killed.

Pro-Palestinian campaigners have tried several times to have Israeli officials arrested under the principle of universal jurisdiction, which holds that some alleged crimes are so grave that they can be tried anywhere, regardless of where the offences were committed
Yeah. Arrest someone for something that happened in another place WAAAY outside your jurisdiction... Not a good idea to start, folks.

You know why Barney Frank is still in office? Because so many people in MA are so effing stupid.
Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School Senior Dan Depaolis, dressed in medieval garb, rode a horse into the school's parking lot as part of spirit week.

What he, and his parents, thought was a good-natured stunt, the school deemed dangerous. Depaolis was suspended from school for two days.
The father tells FOX25 the school compared the stunt to bringing a “loaded firearm” to school and that he and his wife were shocked to hear about the suspension, saying that the 1100-pound horse, named Pierre, would never hurt a fly

Why some US Attorneys should be among those tarred and feathered. Also the judges who help them commit this crap.

Whoo, the gent from Mass Backwards won! Excellent!

You too can make your effing damn longMosin Nagant into a bullpup!

Ok, a laser or gps-guided mini-bomb that can be carried by the buttload on drones... the possibilities are endless.

One last thing, which is political: here in OK question 744 went down. As in about 82% against. This was the "Screw everything else, give the schools all the money they want, with no real accountability for the spending and no worrying about where the money will come from" bill. A lot of the 'pro' crap was on this level: the radio commercial had some announcer reading and then asking "Is this real? We're not spending anywhere NEAR enough!", etc. after each section, ending with "WHO could be against 744?" The answer? "A lot of greedy people, Frank."

Do these clowns have any freakin' idea how offensive that is? Standard "If you don't vote for this you're greedy and don't care about the CHILDREEEN!! and SCHOOLS!!!" crap. I'd bet that commercial alone pissed off a lot of people. Screw 'em, we don't trust the education people anywhere near enough to even consider handing them money this way.

I now leave you to your own devices.

I turned the volume down on the radio every time that spot came on.

I was getting nervous about that question when I kept hearing that polls reported it would pass. Then saw the margin by what it was defeated. Makes me wonder who was polling and passing out the press reports on those polls.

Liberals just have to lie I think.
