  1. White male grievance. Give me a break. 

    I have no doubt that Siri is smarter than I am. But I don’t use that feature of my phone – would probably make me feel just a little stupid. But I do know that elephants aren’t human. Have to say a habeus corpus petition was a long shot. I’m guessing Happy is smarter than the lawyer who cooked that up. I do wonder about the two judges who voted to grant the petition.

  2. pogo, had the argument been only about being “sentient” Happy would prevail.  Neither Siri nor corporations exhibit feelings.  as far as that goes neither do some of the folk in the senate these days and there’s absolutely no evidence of sentience in loser former guy. ever. 

  3. “I have no doubt that Siri is smarter than I am. But I don’t use that feature of my phone – would probably make me feel just a little stupid.”

    hell, pogo, my phone is smarter than i am.   the dogs and cat too for that matter.  thank heavens i can lord it over the chickens though. talk about being dumb!/p>

  4. Siri is great……places calls, sends messages, finds stuff you need to find…….a great little tool, especially when driving.  For instance, bring up Siri and say, “I see a little silhouetto of a man” and see what happens.

  5. Production crew for Colbert show arrested, charged with unlawful entry at Capitol | The Hill

    The network told The Hill in a statement that Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and a production team were at the Capitol both Wednesday and Thursday recording interviews for a segment.
    “Their interviews at the Capitol were authorized and pre-arranged through Congressional aides of the members interviewed,” CBS said.
    “After leaving the members’ offices on their last interview of the day, the production team stayed to film stand-ups and other final comedy elements in the halls when they were detained by Capitol Police,” the network added
    U.S. Capitol Police said in a statement that seven people were charged with unlawful entry after responding to a call received at around 8:30 p.m. of a disturbance in the Longworth House building.
    “Responding officers observed seven individuals, unescorted and without Congressional ID, in a sixth-floor hallway. The building was closed to visitors, and these individuals were determined to be a part of a group that had been directed by the USCP to leave the building earlier in the day,” Capitol Police said while not disclosing the identities of those charged.
    “This is an active criminal investigation, and may result in additional criminal charges after consultation with the U.S. Attorney,” they added.

    bet the next colbert show will be a humdinger

  6. “Siri is great……places calls, sends messages, finds stuff you need to find…”

    sturge, so who needs a wife with service like that?

  7. Jason Miller gave a pregnant woman a smoothie containing some sort of abortion drug which sent her to the hospital with severe bleeding and other dangerous symptoms, resulting in the death of the child she was carrying.  

  8. sturge, by any chance was he being a “fixer” for someone (whom we do not name anymore) or for his own dalliance? 

  9. It was his girlfriend or mistress or whatnot, I’d have to look it up.    It’s not just an ugly rumor though, it went thru court.  

  10. Sir Paul  is eighty today. and still rocking it. 
    This video clip is from 2 days ago, not very good quality but what do you expect from a phone.
    Ain’t technology wonderful. 

  11. Trump speech yesterday: Jan. 6 was a “simple protest that got out of hand”, and said if elected again he would “seriously consider” pardons for rioters.

  12. Bob Dylan on McCartney:

    I’m in awe of McCartney,” said the legendary songwriter. “He’s about the only one that I am in awe of. He can do it all. And he’s never let up… He’s just so damn effortless.”

  13. unlike Mrs. Jack I never was a Beatles fanatic, but I have been curating what I call my traveling music list a lot of what I thought was good stuff in the day,  The Beatles are holding up much better than many of their contemporaries. I think I have deleted all but 2 of the Stones and  have Townes singing Dead Flowers.

  14. Jason Miller.  During the campaign isn’t he the guy who fathered two children at the same time.  I just don’t see the charm if this guy.
    But a lot of people seem to like him. I don’t get it at all.  He is disgusting prick.

  15. So you just throw some earphones in, Mr. S, and listen to youtube or NPR or anything on your walks, i do that instead of watching tv

  16. 🎼  tell me that you’ve heard every sound there is… 🎶 
    Damnit, just cracked some fine stemware

  17. Bink
    I have a cabinet shelf dedicated to the last piece of my favorite stem ware over the years. Most are champagne flutes because they get less use. They are designed to be broken if used and of no use just setting on a shelf.

  18. well, if you hear the faint whisper of an angelic falsetto rippling across the lake and cascading over the limestone hills, you might want to bubble wrap it

  19. Kellyanne on CNN about husband George: “His vows to me, I feel, we’re broken… I just did not want to be stuck in a cable news segment in the master bedroom hearing about Trump, Trump, Trump. And I think George became an expert on many things people wanted him to be, and all I really wanted was my husband and the father of my children as I always had him.”

  20. Part of my plan as I moved was to pack all of Sherry’s and my collectables and start my perpetual estate sale. So yesterday I went out to one of the local indoor flea markets to get an idea as to the prices of some of our stuff.
    I found a lonely piece of stemware….


  21. and just yesterday we were telling him not to run up the plane stairs

    Biden falls off bike – The Washington Post

    REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. — President Biden tumbled to the ground while on a morning bike ride near his vacation home here Saturday, falling as his shoes apparently got caught in the toe cages as he tried to stop.


    “I’m good,” he quickly declared, as Secret Service agents came to his aid.

    He fell while approaching a waiting crowd and, after popping back up, he spent several minutes talking with onlookers and then answered a few questions from reporters.


  22. Jesus H Christ. Can’t Joe catch a break? I’ve had the same thing happen back in the day when I used pedal toe clips with straps. I’ve also fallen off my bike and put a nice big ass scrape on my left hip and elbow doing it, and I sure as hell wasn’t approaching 80 years old.

  23. grifting along with the bungling bunco deeds

    From Big Lie to Big Rip-off: The Trump campaign’s fundraising tactics are in the spotlight this week after the January 6th hearings exposed a fake “Official Election Defense Fund” that raised $250 million to pay for legal fees to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. Former Trump fixer and former personal attorney for Donald Trump, Michael Cohen, tells Michael Steele that Trump is a “menace” and “it’s sad to see that there are so many people out there that have so much faith in him, after they see exactly what is going on.”

  24. POTUS Joe is fine.    W took a tumble off of his bike, too.  Shit happens.  It’s time to stop being ageist.   

    On the plus side, if the GQP wants to talk about his stumble, they aren’t talking about other things.  

    I prefer a POTUS riding a bike to one who cheats at golf…and everything else.

  25. The judge continues:

    What you could not know, and did not know, but I will tell you now, is that I believed I had an obligation to the Select Committee and to the country, first to formulate . . . then to measure . . . and then . . . to meter out . . .every . . . single . . . word . . . that I spoke . . . , carefully . . . exactingly . . . and . . . deliberately, so that the words I spoke were pristine clear and would be heard, and therefore understood, as such,” he explained.

  26. “I believed Thursday that I had that high responsibility and obligation — to myself, even if to no other. Also please bear in mind that Thursday was the first time in 68 years, to my knowledge, I had ever been on national television, let alone national television like that. And though not scared, I was concerned that I do my very best and not embarrass myself, as I think anyone who found themselves in that frightening circumstance would be,” he continued.
    “I decided to respond to your at once astute and understanding tweet finally this afternoon, because I have been watching the tweets all day suggesting that I am recovering from a severe stroke, and my friends, out of their concern for me and my family, have been earnestly forwarding me these tweets, asking me if I am alright. Such is social media, I understand. But I profoundly believe in social media’s foundational, in fact revolutionary, value and contribution to Free Speech in our country, and for that reason I willingly accept the occasional bad that comes from social media, in return for the much more frequent good that comes from it — at least from the vastly more responsible, respectful speech on those media,” he wrote.



  27. Ah, the ellipsis and all that it entails.  I knew liked that guy.     We are very form over function in the modern world…which means we’ve devolved from our highest point.   Remember how Howard Dean gave one, little yelp and it undid him? Every gaffe now becomes a meme. There is no room for uniqueness if it isn’t telegenic.

  28. I was in law school in Richmond, clerking for a really good guy and fine lawyer when GHWB created the 4th Circuit seat for judge Luttig. He was well known In Richmond legal circles as a very smart and very conservative guy and his elevation to the bench was met with some considerable skepticism among the more progressive legal types. Following his testimony I exchanged emails with my prior employer about that and my pleasure at his display of integrity and devotion to the Constitution.  His response was “Very conservative is different from Trump.  Thankfully.”  Amen, bruddah. 

  29. Republicans don’t want to talk about how they want to restrict all of your rights, except the one to own a gun…and, they want to take away your Medicare and Social Security.   Republicans are NOT pro-life.   They are pro-control. They are pro-corporations.  They do not want to protect children after they are born.  They do not want to protect the elderly or disabled.    Republicans  are heartless, fascists.
