Back on the stuff

Yup, Barack is back on the prompter.

Alternate title, “I can’t quit you” (but I didn’t see Brokeback Mountain and I always hesitate to use a movie line in the dark).

Alternate picture idea: does this flag make my president look small?

Sorry for the fuzzy image. The base image at the Examiner (at the link) is oddly pixelated, like it was improperly sized down. Couldn’t find the original.

It’s a pity. I love it when he speaks off the cuff.

I was gonna say go with “Putting the Douche back in Douchebag…” Preznit “My Little Pony”, reading his prepared lines…from the heart…of someone else…

TOTUS for Preznit, 2012.

Speaking of photos, and fuzzy photos (and photoshop) …
Stoaty—do you know of any software that will detect if a photo has been tinkered with?

I don’t know of any, Deborah, but I bet it’s coming.

You know how we look back at early films — let’s say a Keystone Kops flick — and it just screams at us that the thing has been speeded up? You know, they didn’t notice because what did they know from film? But we spot it right away, because it’s just so obvious for people who grew up watching movies.

I worry that Photoshop is going to be like that. Like, future generations will look back and say, “that Stoaty Weasel person sure did a lot of rinky-dink amateurish shit, didn’t she?”

More like “that Stoaty Weasel person sure was a pioneer, wasn’t she.” But what you do is photo-caricature, and it’s not meant to deceive. I see a lot of “news” photos that I strongly suspect have been scrubbed and manipulated, and it makes me uneasy. For example, Hillary Clinton’s face looks like a topographic map of West Virginia, but invariably, all but just a few wrinkles are removed. And it’s not Vogue magazine doing it, it’s a “legitimate” news source.

Deborah – if current trends are an indicator, Stoatie will be in the California State-approved History books touted as a major force for LBGT’s regardless of the facts of the matter. I’m only half (bi ?) serious but I need a segue into the question on which I need everyone’s opinion:

Today is the gay kiss-in at CFA. I know there is a group planning to do appearances here in Dallas – they, of course, made the news. What is the proper response?

Should I stay away to deny them the appearance of support? Should I go and buy a sandwich and ignore them to show they can’t impact sales or will-that- give the appearance of supporting them by buying while they’re smootching?

I have to confess I want to go and take the camera – snap two girls in a sweaty kiss and them tell them it’s going on the internet labeled as:

“Two cows kissing at Chick-Fil-A”

Opinions? Suggestions?

I dunno about the flag making him look small – but the light makes him look old. Haggard, even.

Ace O’ Spades suggested Olympic style judging. Hold up cards with the judges scores.
Label someone the East German judge and have them hold up a card opposite of the others… 8.0 8.5 2.0 9.5 etc.
Ridicule the idiots.

A bit late, but here is my take.

1. Go to Chick-fil-A. Don’t be chased away. When you buy, comment to the clerk that you refuse to be chased away by the Left.

2. If you have one, use a camera to video anything done by the Leftists. This will keep them honest, because you know that the enemy will be as outrageous as possible and later claim to have been choirboys/girls. If there is an interaction between management and those acting outrageous, tape it and be ready to post it online or give it to someone to post online. Make sure you have time/date info. Offer to management or the police if they get involved.

3. I am partial to the idea of using napkins and markers to hold up old style Olympic scores to grade those making out. Do it in good humor. Do not be provoked. They want drama, give them comedy. Make them take the first aggressive step, especially if it is being taped. They WANT you to be legally in the wrong. Make them take that step.

4. If attacked, of course defend yourself. But also press every charge you can conceive of; including Habeas Mabeus and Leering and Sleering with felonious intent to creep and crawl. And if they do attack you, do not forget civil suit. They will sue you if they get the chance. Do unto others before they can do unto you.

There is a website called Photoshop Killer, found at pskiller.com that will give you photoshop info,Deborah.

Hey, I went to Chick-Fil-A on Friday afternoon. It wasn’t a stand-alone store, it’s one in the mall near my house. They were doing a decent business at 4-something on a Friday, but no long long lines, and nobody of any persuasion was making out. I wanted to use a line I copped from a commenter on AoS: “Hey, if you guys would stop voting for communists, the economy would pick up and you could afford a room!”

Sadly, the opportunity never arose.

The grilled chicken was good.

Sorry about the trip to the spam filter, Hampton40. I guess it didn’t like the .com in your message.

“Does this flag make my president look small?” Dunno – he’s not MY president.

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
