    ... A Liar Needs A Good Memory by Downey Mildew just 'cuz of the truth of the title and the person's name (or is it a band's name?).  I've never heard of it, so I'm assuming it's probably a C&W song (one of the very few categories of music not in my little eclectic media library).

    JEERS  Siiiiiiiiiiigh.....  The War on Women continues....
    Hobby Lobby sues over morning-after pill coverage

    Damn.  This is a bitter pill to swallow, given the people involved are so admired for other things they did that were so good:
    War-time allies hushed up Katyn massacre of Poles: documents

    This comes under the category of "So, what else is new?"  Yawn.
    Bush Knew More About Bin Laden's Plans Than We Realized
    Well, we knew we had been lied to, and one would assume more lies will be revealed as time goes on, even long after the Baby Boomer generation is dead (and if there's anyone left with a modicum of common sense and intellectual acumen, they'll be wondering the same thing we are still wondering:  Why weren't these lying war criminals hauled to The Hague, or put on trial right here in the US for violating our criminal statutes...?

    Old Business (extending FISA fiasco '08, again, when it should be repealed entirely), by Jesselyn Radack.  You won't like the video any more than I did.
    Despite Whistleblowers' Explosive Disclosures, House Normalizes Surveillance State.

    And because we all need a little CHEER in our lives, here's a cute little "Cat Nap" pootie on Jonathan Turley's blog.

    Ha!  I found some really early family members in old books with out-of-date copyrights from England and more books to download from Google and Archive.org.  This is major paydirt since it's the ONE line that's been written about years ago, the earliest recorded ancestor was born ca 1149 and the people mentioned in the family history books are the ones I'm finding in these old record books.  Yowza!  Yeah, I'm smiling.  :-)

    JEERS, however, because since the Java update videos have either been slow, jerky, or only get partially downloaded before they stop and go no further.  Damn.  It was working great, then some numbskull "fixed what wasn't broken" - and now it IS broken and needs fixing or going back to the earlier version that worked beautifully.  Dumb $h!te$.

    CHEERS to all of you lovely Kossacks and your furry and feathery family and friends.  I'll hang around for a while, but then have to sleep since I have (once again!) managed to turn my nights and days around again.

      If the video on YouTube is any indication and it's the same band.

        ... didn't have any screaming electric guitars played at an unreasonable level, so that's to their credit.  I couldn't hear the lyrics over the music however (a common problem with music from the last 20 years).  The second selection was doing okay until a damned snake came on the screen, and I exited.  Ugh.

        Apparently the song BiPM listed is not on YouTube...?  At least I didn't find it.
