Open Thread – We’re #1

Alaska’s brand took a hit a few years back due to some lady whose name escapes me at present. But that hasn’t prevented us from achieving superlative rankings in other matters.

    My most selfish holiday wish is a Jeanne Devon illustrated,stick figure rendition of “twas the night before Christmas” with added commentaries by all “Pups”,whether required or not.(self excluded).

    A bit of satire from the New Yorker: Time names Mitt Romney Man of the Year 1912.

      I can picture Money Boo Boo forcing Titanic passengers to make him beneficiary of their life insurance policies just before he sails away,alone in his personal lifeboat.

    Westboro Baptist Church joins James Dobson in blaming Gays and abortions for the mass killings in Conn. Anonymous has promised Westboro that actions have consequences. Go get ‘em,tiger.

    http://qctimes.com/news/opinion/editorial/contraception-program-is-an-iowa-success/article_2f503ae2-4800-11e2-b867-001a4bcf887a.html This program should be applauded by all people who want less abortions and less unwanted children……..aw,who am I kidding? No good deed goes unpunished by rw evangelicals who can’t mind their own business. Besides,the outcome was provided by tainted,liberal monies-Warren Buffett’s first wife-Susan(her foundation). Therefore the results are null and void for half of America.

    As a shocked populace comes to grip with horrific mass-killings,can we agree to find new,less onerous words for gruesome details than highlights? Speaking personally,when I encounter the word highlights I expect to see sports videos. Just saying.

    Every Nature program on Alaska shows coastal grizzlies eating chlams. Do they get the disease,too? Consider me curious in iowa.

    • slipstream says:

      We are unable to answer that question. A few brave biologists have attempted to sneak up behind a brown bear with a syringe to collect a blood sample, but the result was never good.

      Dear Curious in Iowa-
      In keeping with our need to maintain being #1 at something or other , please accept the whopper lie that, yes, of course the bears get the disease too :-)

      (AKM often makes me laugh or chortle, plenty of others who stop by here are good for a guffaw, You are the only one who gets a genuine gut busting roll on the floor laughing so hard I almost break 3 ribs howl.)

    That was no lady, just saying.

    • AKblue says:

      This same “lady” blames the media (of which she is a part) and politicians ( which she once was) for the tragedy in Connecticut. Remember the crosshairs, anyone?

        I read her entire response on Facebook a couple of times and concluded that the Newtown shooting has shaken this mama grizzly to the core. Was this her attempt to coalesce her defense of the NRA-driven gun culture and her love of children? If so, she came up lacking. As a woman who proved on her teevee series that she is clueless when it comes to actually using guns, perhaps for the first time she recognizes the power of them. So, she retreated into familiar territory with a chaotic reference to everything she hates, which happens to be everything she is, while trying to somehow address the loss of these innocents. I wondered if anybody else found this to be a screed in search of a point to be made by a woman clearly close to the edge.
