When I was a kid, the last-place game, or whatever, was usually called the Toilet Bowl.

I must say Hugh has been on good behavior lately, which makes for a better podcast. As for Dana, she brings up the Tulalip shooting and gun control. I wonder if the tribe would be subject to state regulation or federal regulation if some kind of anti-2nd amendment law gets passed. Washington State has two such initiatives on the ballot this go around. In our world, the tribe is treated like a separate nation, though they get to vote and spend big bucks on Democrat candidates. They collect money from Seattle garbage disposal companies, don't control it (there were reports of hospital waste floating in Puget Sound next to the dump, and then get said garbage disposal companies to pay to clean up their dump. Strange world. I still wonder when the Tribe aspect of the shooting gets told. I hope it doesn't and hope this just goes away, but there is a story (or what the MSM likes to call a story these days). Good thing the tribal leaders were all over this from the get-go.

Great news. I am still trying to wrap around my head the idea that Democrats support same day registration, early voting, etc. etc.. Earlier you can vote means the more begging and cajoling they can do with their voter lists. By the same token, why can't Republicans go to the nursing homes, senior centers and homeless shelters to harvest voters? Because they don't lie? Hmmm, what is that old joke, "when can you tell a politician is lying?" Answer: his lips are moving. I basic wish is that if you want the privilege to vote you have to be willing to get up off the hinnie, go to the booths and vote in person. I remember my first experience. In 2001 we were supposed to be out of town on voting day so we did the voluntary mail-in. Trip was canceled and I felt out of place not being able to go to the polling booth to vote. A year or two later and we have the infernal mail-in ballots where Democrats have been able to cajole and blackmail voters into revising and editing their ballots for the governor's race until they win.

Wednesday morning the Hughniverse site was temporarily unavailable. Several refreshes later, it was back on. Ben Shapiro had a nice comment debunking the Michael Brown as Gentle Giant theory here: http://www.truthrevolt.org/videos/ben-shapiro-myth-or-true-story-michael-brown-gentle-giant These kind of press inventions create a narrative that is lot of times far from the truth. I thought this applied to the Marysville situation as the press attempts to paint a flattering figure of the premeditated killer.

The actual black vote may not be the most important thing, at least in some states. A recent posting by Project Veritas, the operation run by videographer James O'Keefe, suggests that at least in some places, such as Colorado, discarded early/mail-in ballots may be getting "harvested" especially in black neighborhoods, then filled out and sent in by Democrat operatives, one of whom has already been fired as a result of the Project Veritas exposé.

Monday morning the Hughniverse was down but came up later in the day. Just starting a log. As for the Marysville shooting, the press is staying away from the bullying and racist angle. Apparently, the kid had been harrassed incessantly on the football team where he was so beloved (or so they said). Kids who know the shooter said 'everyone' picked on him. He went to teachers, etc. about the bullying and didn't get anywhere. Then he finds out his gfriend slept slept with his cousin. At 14. Then, or so rumor says, his was known as quite a pervert on twitter. I didn't get exactly what he was except a lot of innuendo. At 14. As for the tribes themselves, I just have a soft spot for their plight on the reservation. Being beaten down by the BIA, but finally getting their bingo, then casino than bigger bingo and then the huge casino, the outlet malls, Walmart and Home Depot, etc. The tribe is rolling in money but they have the same problems as most tribes- meth, heroin and lots and lots of free money given to tribal members, including free housing. When we were in foster care business, we had a young Indian girl of 4 or 5 like the wife loved. We were told we would have her a long, long time by the tribe social worker. Well, that didn't last long. Seems tribal members gets a lot of money when they take in their foster kids. Also, they get 10% off purchases (which was nice for us grocery shopping) and they get $75/quarter per person off Nike outlet mall. And yet, the social problems still exist. Back to the shooter, he was known as quite chippy and got in a fight the previous week. It was not unusual. I know lots of tribe members- quite peaceful and good people, but there are too many with chips on their shoulders like the shooter's. As I get more 'rumors' I will post further.

Seems like. From his references back to "Steyn was right" I get the feeling that he's defending Steyn more than the argument itself.

It sounded like Marlon hung up on himself. Too bad. I was hoping for the coup d'etat whereby the interns tookover the aftershow.

Of course it's not inconceivable. It's just not the case in this particular instance.

Mark Steyn can be wrong. It isn't inconceivable. I even have a recording where he admitted it to James Lileks when Lileks pointed something out to him that he'd missed.

The question about how the Sacramento and other events might change how you vote, really shouldn't apply to anyone who regularly listens to Hugh OR Duane. Was ANY such person going to vote for ANY democrat, even BEFORE those events? I sure wasn't, and I don't WANT TO know anyone who WAS. So no, these events don't change MY voting one bit. I actually sent in my early ballot already, so even if I had some kind of stroke and suddenly turned stupid democrat, I couldn't change my votes anyway.

Like kerry, I've also been getting site down notices. Not much but more than before. Too often to be a routine site maintenance issue but not enough except to offer a comment to kerry.

I hope there's some mention today of the recent James O'Keefe/Project Veritas videos, exposing voter fraud in Colorado among other things.

You know they raised the rates on the Hughniverse. That means you get a decrease in customer service. Aaah, the beauty of the American way.

Hugh is always talking about the Strong Horse or something. I wonder if he means the Dead Horse which is getting kicked around here.

No, you didn't "debunk" anything, any more than verse three of the Star Spangled Banner "debunks" verse one. 29 occurances of a first person singular (self-referential) pronoun in the song. 2 occurances of the line you quote. Looks pretty self-referential to an objective observer.

I think I'll save my prayers for all the people the doctor thoughtlessly exposed, rather than the doctor himself. And the same goes for Nancy Snyderman.

So, what's the difference between this one, and the 18-second-longer version posted earlier? Did I for once manage to grab something actionable that had gone out over the air, before it disappears down the memory hole for the podcast?

A little odd how much I'm seeing "Site temporarily unavailable. Connection timed out - please try again." lately for hughniverse.com. And the worst part is, it also seems to affect the podcasts getting put on iTunes.

And it doesn't help that, as Duane sometimes comments, what they're "chatting" about is totally unrelated to what's happening on the show at that moment.

I've already debunked that argument, perhaps in my first comment on the subject. "I'm here to tell YOU, every inch of YOU is perfect, from the bottom to the top." That makes it not self-referential or self-aggrandizing. Just as Star Spangled Banner is not only for people who actually themselves saw the flag still standing after the battle.

I find the 'chat' room to be an effort in futility as I can't figure out what they are talking about. Nice peple, all, believe me, but so scattered- kind of like tribbles :).

Didn't used to be that way. And didn't Hugh or was it VDH who called out Scoop Jackson and Sam Nunn, not Michele Nutt?
