Red State issues challenge to DKos

by River Rover

Unnamed, but often reliable, sources are reporting that talks have been ongoing between the two belligerent blogs to determine the rules of engagement for an as yet unannounced physical altercation .  The planned brawl was initiated when Red State potentate Erick Erickson had  an actual iron gauntlet delivered to Dkos world headquarters and an unnamed staffer inadvertantly picked it up to get some popcorn out of the microwave with.

Since the issuance of the challenge talks have begun between the two sites warlords, Red State's mysterious 'streiff' and Meteor Blades, the highly decorated DKos field commander.  

It was early decided that a single combat between Kos and Erickson would not really settle anything.

" What's two guys fighting gonna prove' streiff might have said 'we wanna show once and for all that, man for man, Red Staters are just a better grade of humans than those pootie worshipers over at the Daily Kos. What we Staters demand is a good old fashioned street fight."

According to sources close to Meteor Blades, he may have said that while the 'general melee' format is acceptable to the Kossack community the street is no place for it to take place.

"We would like to keep this quiet and private with no police involvement. We're trying to get the old Astodome in Houston for a venue' Mr. Blades probably said, 'I mean it's  abandoned so it's perfect for something like this.  I think the Red State bums should agree to the Dome 'cause they not gonna wanna have everybody see what we do to them."

The negotiations are now centering on rules of engagement - specifically on allowable weapons, with both side agreeing to bats, shivs, chains and knucks and Red Staters holding out for zip guns.

"No way I'm going for guns' Blades doubtlessly said, ' I mean DKos has RTKBA group - the staters are a RTKBA group.


As Winter grudgingly gives way to Spring, America once again watches helplessly as a vast tide of immigrants prepares to wash across our border with Mexico.  Law enforcement, both state and federal, have been powerless to stem this river of interlopers whose dual purpose is to consume this countries resources and give birth to offspring which they leave to fend for themselves in our land of plenty.

Don't count on Washington to deal this.  Congress is unable to address this or any other issue for the foreseeable future and the White House actually seems to be on the side of the border crossers.

There are two groups that are doing good work to fight this swarm of undesirables :

The North American Milkweed Fanciers Association

Monsanto Chemical Corporation (maker of Round Up herbicide)

Donations to either of these fine patriotic groups, while not tax deductable yet,
will help secure our Southern border and protect our precious national milkweed reserves.

Monarch butterflies are a threat that never sleeps.


I like milkweed leaves__

Yesterday I inadvertantly recced a disgusting and treacherous diary by the now bojoed "Blue Jersey Morn"

I was trying to HR this piece of trash but since I seldom press any thing but rec, well, I made a mistake.

I ask the entire Dkos community to accept my apology.


Apology accepted ?

  Last spring I planted a handful of milkweed seeds in a small bed in my front yard.  About a month ago I found 3 catapillars on the plants and brought them inside.  One was killed by a spider, one just died, and one became a butterfly which I released.  I kept them in small cardboard boxes and fed them an astonishing amount of milkweed leaves.
   In the last two days I have found 7 more ranging in length from 1 1/2" to 3/4" in length.  I suspect the Dkos community has some people who can give me some tips on butterfly husbandry that will improve the odds for these little guys.  Any insight will be appreciated.

   I won't be around for the comments.  I'll be in the shop inventing a butterfly nursery.


Are Monarch butterflys wonderful ?

note : Morpheus is in no way like a kitten.

During this test, the autonomous untethered Morpheus "Bravo" vehicle will launch from the ground over the flame trench, ascend approximately 177 meters (580 ft), then translate approximately 255 meters (837 ft) downrange while performing a 13-meter (42.6 ft) divert to emulate a hazard avoidance maneuver before descending to land on a pad in the hazard field. Test firing is planned for approximately 1:45 p.m. CST. Streaming will begin approximately 20 minutes prior to ignition. This is the last free flight before the team begins ALHAT integration.


UPDATE Test delayed until 2:15 CST


What should be next ?

 In 1965 Intel co-founder Gordon Moore made the observation that the density of transistors which could be printed on a circuit doubles about every 24 months.  With the added speed and efficiency which comes from greater density over all computing power doubles about every 18 months.  Though there are physical limits that will someday kick in, Mr. Moore has been right for almost fifty years.
