Never Too Old (To Hold Somebody)

 His left arm is under my head 
 and his right arm embraces me.

Don't abandon life
Don't step away
Don't give up that tune
That you never could play
If you're folding your tent
And the gas pipes groan
If every bone rattles
Through nights all alone
Well you're tougher than leather
No old burlap sack
Not some hard scrabble weeds
Growing up through the cracks
Don't you know, you're never too old
You're never too old to hold somebody...

    oy, lol

  4. pbird9:59 AM

    I understand there is some kind of event scheduled for this evening that will feature two known and proven liars mouthing pious rhetoric, brazen falsehoods and scripted zingers in a process carefully crafted by their paid handlers to exclude any substantive examination of genuine issues of vital concern to the citizens whom the two known liars purportedly wish to "serve." I understand this will be followed by an outpouring of fetid gas emitted by a series of third-rate intellects and clueless goobers in various media who will examine the body language and facial expressions of the two proven liars to determine which of the liars might have gained the most political benefit from their lying and zinging and pious posing.The end result of this process will be that one of the two known and proven liars will become the temporary manager of a world-spanning, treasury-bleeding war machine which they will use to kill many innocent people over the next four years while continuing to degrade the lives and liberties of their own citizens on behalf of a brutal, stupid and rapacious elite.

    BIAS ALERT: Liberal Panic Over Obama

    Debate sends MSNBC talking heads — like Chris Matthews — into
    frenzy after Romney comes out swinging

  8. Storagemanager10:19 AM

    For MSNBCers, it was a sign of The End Times. Perennial Obama Fan Club President
    Chris Matthews lamented the whole ordeal, whining this “wasn’t an MSNBC debate,
    was it? It just wasn’t.”

    NJ Congressman Threatens Rabbi Boteach, Adelsons
    NJ Congressman threatens his Republican opponent, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, saying he will “have to suffer."

  20. Storagemanager10:43 AM

    In response to Pascrell’s threat, Rabbi Boteach issued a statement saying, “I find it bone-chilling that a sitting Congressman would threaten his opponent for simply engaging in the democratic process. It is one thing for Bill Pascrell to try and intimidate me and my supporters. It is completely another to threaten unspecified retaliation in the form of ‘suffering’ for simply exercising First Amendment rights. We expect harassment of political opponents in Iran and the former Soviet Union. We certainly don’t expect an elected official in New Jersey to act in this manner. The Adelsons are the foremost Jewish philanthropists in America. It is particularly troubling that a sitting Congressman would threaten people who have done so much good in the world


  22. I mentioned adoption. I didn’t see that as important, but think of this: the New Testament refers to the Holy Spirit as the “spirit of adoption.” See Romans 8:15: “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”

    I’m not planning this. It’s just coming out as I type. The NIV omits “adoption” and says “sonship”! The Greek word means “the placing of a son.”

    What does this suggest to me? It suggests that many people who consider themselves Christians are not in the kingdom yet, and I am not required to think of them as brothers. It suggests that the unity Jesus wanted is not unity among denominations, but unity among chosen people within denominations, who are led by the Spirit. So many people from that denomination, so many from the other…they add up to the Body of Christ. It’s not necessary to approve of the denominations and their bad doctrine. It’s necessary to be in agreement with others who are led by the Holy Spirit.

    Churches generally belong to Satan. I think that’s clear. Most deny the Holy Spirit, and even Spirit-filled churches tend to ignore the Spirit and obey the flesh. Satan has done a great job of infiltrating. But virtually all denominations contain folks who are in the kingdom. We are a sort of hidden diaspora.

    just seeing what he has to say today!

  23. of course i agree about churches...they are so discouraging..

  27. BabbaZee11:27 AM

    Instant polls of viewers—not exactly the most accurate long-term
    barometer of a debate's meaning, but an interesting immediate
    temperature reading—showed Mr. Romney winning. Commentators on the left
    were unusually harsh in their analyses of a president they generally
    admire, not so much because of anything he said but because he seemed to
    pass up on opportunities to bash Mr. Romney.

  44. First thing I ever read he was hating on kid's art...which rang a bell with me because I also do not worship kid's art just because the kid did it. I like to see something praiseworthy before I go all mushy. R blames me for her art career she says she did it to please me when she was little, instead of something hard science. OK. But I still think you should praise something worthy and not every little scribble. I wasn't actually trying to turn the poor kid into a painter.

  45. BabbaZee11:53 AM

    she BLAMES you for her fucking lucrative career?




    it is good I did not have kids that would send me over the edge right now for sure!!!

  46. ha bet she would like that

    Cheers of "We love Israel" were heard throughout the streets of Jerusalem Thursday as thousands of Christians from all over the world paraded down the streets to show their support for the State of Israel.
    The flags of over sixty countries waved alongside the blue and white flag of Israel as confetti poured down and Israeli spectators stood on the sidewalk cheering on the marchers and thanking them with replies of "we love you too."
    If nothing else, the parade can serve to remind that with all of the messages of hate going around the world today, it's nice to send a little love.

  117. In fact, on the verge might not be the right way to put it; in the middle of might be more accurate. Steve Hanke estimates that inflation is running at 70% a month. This is, as Alex Tabarrok points out, nowhere near a record. Still, it's a Big Deal. Hyperinflation has brought down governments--Iran is experiencing protests over the collapsing rial. And it's not hard to see why. At the current rate of inflation the value of a savings account (or a mattress stash) is now barely 40% of what it was one month ago. In a few more months, even a healthy balance will be about enough to buy a pack of gum.

    The Liverpool Scene

    The Liverpool Scene was a poetry band, which included Adrian Henri, Andy Roberts, Mike Evans, Mike Hart, Percy Jones and Brian Dodson. It grew out of the success of The Incredible New Liverpool Scene, a CBS LP featuring Henri and McGough reading their work, with accompaniment by the guitarist Roberts. Liverpool DJ John Peel, who was then working on the pirate radio station Radio London, picked up on the LP and featured it on his influential late-night Perfumed Garden
    show. After Radio London closed down, Peel visited Liverpool and met
    the band; as a consequence, they were featured in session on his BBC Top Gear and Night Ride shows, and in 1968 he produced their first LP. Four LPs were issued with Henri's poetry heavily featured.

    Despite Peel's support the albums achieved little success, although
    the band did become popular on the UK university and college circuit.
    Their public performances included a 1969 tour when they opened for Led Zeppelin;
    they also toured the USA but did not attract much acclaim from US
    critics and audiences. Henri was described in performance as "bouncing
    thunderously and at risk to audience and fellow performers, the stage
    vibrating out of rhythm beneath him."[2]

    A brigade of the Free Syrian Army has given the Syrian regime 48 hours to release opposition detainees and stop the shelling of civilians before it begins executing a number of Iranian hostages accused of helping the President Bashar al-Assad’s forces, Al Arabiya TV reported on Friday.

    In a video aired by Al Arabiya, members of the Bar’a brigade in the East Ghouta, on the outskirts of Damascus, said, “If the Syrian regime, backed by the Iranian regime, does not release detainees and stop the shelling on unarmed civilians and indiscriminate killing of innocent of people within 48 hours from the release of this statement, an Iranian prisoner will be killed for each martyr who is killed.”
    In a previous video aired by Al Arabiya, and which can be viewed at:, the Al Bara’a brigade claimed that it kidnaped 48 members of the elite Iranian Revolutionary Guards and denied Iran’s claims that they were pilgrims.

    The brigade “captured 48 of the Shabiha (militiamen) of Iran who were on a reconnaissance mission in Damascus,” said a man dressed as an officer of the Free Syrian Army, in the video aired by Al Arabiya.

    the broad scheme of things, these are excellent times to be a
    billionaire. Labor is powerless. Taxes are low. The banks that survived
    the crisis are bigger than ever. So why do the well-to-do whine so? Why
    do they wring their hands?For one thing, their criticisms reveal a
    contemptuous view of their fellow citizens. That all the books and
    articles on the financial crisis and the recession might have had an
    effect — that people might see the economic downturn as a reflection on
    the individuals who were, a few years back, lionized as the economy’s
    leaders — is inconceivable to the class-war complainers. The public’s
    attitude, they seem to believe, can have arisen only as a result of
    propagandizing by Mr. Obama. No American would ever stop respecting his

    Following the dream of a Third Temple in Jerusalem
    More than 90 percent of Israel’s religious public wants to be allowed to pray at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Some groups, though, wish to go even further and build a Third Temple in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. What fuels the dreams of these Jewish extremists?

    the most important function of the federal
    courts is to legitimate state building by the political branches."
    It does this by supplying the appropriate scholarly conjurations
    every time those in charge of the State seek to enrich their powers
    at the expense of individual liberty.

    "Most Republican politicians don’t actually want to strip the
    federal government of most of the powers to regulate, tax and spend
    that came with the New Deal. This is because Republican politicians
    want to use those powers to promote Republican policies…."

    That is to
    say that "liberty" is a revocable and highly conditional
    gift of the State, and that "oppression" exists anywhere
    there are limits placed on the exercise of federal power. One is
    "free" only to the extent he supports, and is subject
    to, the benevolent rule of the unfathomably noble beings who inhabit
    the Imperial Capital. Questioning their edicts and actions on "constitutional"
    grounds is intolerably impudent – nay, it is nothing less than blasphemy,
    since everything our masters do is blessed with the "presumption
    of constitutionality."

    In his recent
    book It
    Is Dangerous to be Right when the Government is Wrong, Judge
    Andrew Napolitano (one of the few jurists worthy of that honorific)
    underscores the importance of the Supreme Court’s United States
    v. Carolene Products ruling in 1938.

    That presumption
    invests the federal government with something akin to constitutional
    infallibility: Between 1937 and 1995, as Judge Napolitano observes,
    the Supreme Court didn’t strike down a single piece of federal legislation
    on constitutional grounds.

    governmental charter permitting seizure of property through "eminent
    domain" and the suspension of habeas corpus (the irreducible due
    process guarantee) for any reason is latently totalitarian
    at best; those provisions offer a glimpse of the "secret constitution"
    described by Fletcher, in which federal power is limited only by
    the ingenuity and brazenness of those who wield it.

    The disturbing truth is that, comparable to what researchers have seen in other
    wars, the soldiers didn't require a gradual hardening to violence to be able to
    engage in murder. Most humans, Neitzel and Welzer suggest, are capable of
    brutality: it's just a question of what the social setting they are put in

    Soldaten accordingly concludes on a sobering note about the human condition.
    Though violence is not necessarily "bubbling, waiting to be released, just below
    the thin crust of civilization," say Neitzel and Welzer, "human beings have
    perennially chosen the option of violence when it seemed likely to promote their
    own survival." They have chosen it even when it was merely likely to promote
    their social standing.

    servicemen were complicit in war crimes.

    Michelle O'Bama the self-proclaimed health freak with the healthy eating “Let’s Move”
    campaign admitted that she once ate a fried Twinkie in Iowa. The
    hypocrisy is astounding.
