It Takes Planning,
Caution to Avoid Being ´It´

Wall Street Journal, by Russell Adams

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/29/2013 7:20:10 AM

Earlier this month, Brian Dennehy started a new job as chief marketing officer of Nordstrom Inc. In his first week, he pulled aside a colleague to ask a question: How hard it is for a nonemployee to enter the building? Mr. Dennehy doesn´t have a particular interest in corporate security. He just doesn´t want to be "It." Mr. Dennehy and nine of his friends have spent the past 23 years locked in a game of "Tag." It started in high school when they spent their morning break darting around the campus of Gonzaga Preparatory School in Spokane, Wash.

I can see Fr. Raftis giving out communion. In the middle of the communion line, there is his friend to tag him. No where to hide. Can´t break and run. Just grin and bear it.

Amen, Father. You´re it.

When I was in college a similar game was raging. It was so popular that school admin had to ban it during class hours.

The game was called "assasin". An unknown moderator would put an ad in the paper seeking players. Usually about 50 to 100 made for a good game. The moderator would then mix up all the players and send each one a little 3 by five card with one of the others players names and picture. That was it, a name and a picture.

The person on the card was your target. You needed to find them, and "kill" them by tagging them, or planting a card that said bang in their car or whatever. Once you had gotten your target you took that targets current target and the cards from every target he had "Hit". If you were Hit you had to hand over whatever target you currently had and all the target cards from your succesful "Hits". The game ended when the last player had all of the cards.

It was all great fun but could you imagine the uproar, the absolute shocked horror, the screeds on the violence of our society and the primal destructiveness of all things not super liberal. The diatribes against guns and fun , the 60 minutes investigations over shocking secret school games destined to destroy modern civilisation, should someone try and organize a game of assasin today?

Great idea for keeping in touch and keeping fun in your life! And thanks for posting this - I still have trouble reading much of political articles. I read snippets until I get depressed. This was a nice diversion. Thanks.

Scott Walker to tea party: Focus on defeating

Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker urged tea party activists Sunday to focus on defeating Democrats in the 2014 midterm elections, not challenging Republicans they think are insufficiently conservative during primary season. The potential 2016 Republican presidential contender appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” with host Candy Crowley: CROWLEY: When Republicans on Capitol Hill agreed to a budget agreement before they left for the holiday recess, Speaker John Boehner came out and really took on conservatives — tea party-types — for having an undue influence on some of his members that have blocked, famously, a number of things that we

The representative of a human rights group headed by a designated al Qaeda terrorist was denied a visa by the State Department after being invited by congressional Democrats to discuss drone strikes. Mohammad Al Ahmady, the Yemen director for Geneva-based NGO Al Karama, was expected to brief Reps. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.), Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), and Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) the morning of the Nov. 19, according to press release from Grayson’s office.

MSNBC, the left-leaning cable-news network, has settled on one solution to its recent problems. It now has an executive reviewing scripts before they go on the air. The role, which has fallen to Rich Stockwell, a former executive producer of The Ed Show and Countdown with Keith Olbermann who now oversees special projects at the network, was created as several of the network’s hosts have, to the embarrassment of network brass, conducted a master class in political incorrectness. In recent months, Alec Baldwin, Martin Bashir, and, most recently, Melissa Harris-Perry have awkwardly crashed into the trinity of sexual orientation, gender,

Your Birthday Gift to Michelle
Whitehouse Dossier, by Keith Koffler    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 1/5/2014 6:14:26 PM     Post Reply
First Lady Michelle Obama failed to accompany President Obama and their daughters home from Hawaii today, a decision that will likely incur taxpayers at least a couple of hundred thousand dollars in costs. The White House described the move as a “birthday gift” from President Obama to his wife, allowing her to “spend times with friends ahead of her upcoming 50th birthday,” which occurs January 17. But for this gift, you are footing much of the bill. I estimated some costs a year ago when, on their previous vacation to Hawaii, it appeared that Michelle was going to stay in Hawaii

Extensive salvage logging
proposed for Rim fire area
Los Angeles Times, by Bettina Boxall    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 1/5/2014 5:44:57 AM     Post Reply
The U.S. Forest Service is proposing an extensive salvage operation to log dead trees on about 46 square miles of timberland charred in last year´s massive Rim fire in the Sierra Nevada. The project would be one of the largest federal salvage efforts in California in years. If approved, it could yield more lumber than the combined annual output of all the national forests in the state. But it is already triggering a fight by some environmentalists who argue that the post-fire logging would destroy valuable habitat for rare birds and other species that thrive in blackened forests. The Rim, ignited by a

Now, we have narrowed it down to the top 15 based on your votes. Americans love Tex-Mex. There is

Democrats’ ‘fairness’ Catch-22

All the political talk of tackling inequality should warm the hearts of Jets fans. After next month’s game in the Meadowlands, it will be 45 years since the team won the Super Bowl, a measure of inequality that cries out for justice. Oh, the unfairness! There are 32 NFL teams, so, in a utopian world, each team would win the championship once every 32 years.(Snip)The most optimistic way to view this “pink tide” washing over us is to realize it is doomed to fail. Whether it’s ObamaCare or de Blasio’s claim that “our mission” is to end a “tale of

Let Them Eat Sandwiches: USDA
Eases School Lunch Restrictions

After the the school lunch program was overhauled in 2012 to curb childhood obesity, lots of kids began complaining that lunches were too skimpy. Why? Because in some cases, schools had to limit healthy foods — such as sandwiches served on whole-grain bread or salads topped with grilled chicken — due to restrictions the U.S. Department of Agriculture set on the amount of grains and protein that could be served at meal-time. In some districts, program participation dropped as more kids decided to brown-bag it and bring their own food to school. That led food service directors to lobby the USDA to reverse

For a little while in my teenage years, my friends and I smoked marijuana. It was fun. I have some fond memories of us all being silly together. I think those moments of uninhibited frolic deepened our friendships. But then we all sort of moved away from it. I don’t remember any big group decision that we should give up weed. It just sort of petered out, and, before long, we were scarcely using it. We didn’t give it up for the obvious health reasons: that it is addictive in about one in six teenagers; that smoking and driving is a

Bitter cold. Below-zero. Blizzard conditions. Sorry, Northeast. But those are phrases you´ll be using a lot Friday amid a monster storm. And not just the Northeast, forecasters said. About one-third of the nation -- approximately 100 million people in 22 states -- is in the path this storm. But the Northeast will be hardest-hit, the National Weather Service said. "Heaviest snow will fall from central New York to the Massachusetts coast. Blizzard conditions are possible for eastern Long Island and the Massachusetts coast. Bitter cold will move into the Midwest and East following the storm," the Weather Service said. The

CHICAGO -- It´s the kind of puzzle that might have amused Sherlock Holmes himself. Now that copyright protections have expired on nearly all of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle´s tales about the pipe-puffing detective in the deerstalker hat, are writers free to depict the character in new mysteries without seeking permission or paying license fees? A federal judge in Chicago says yes, so long as they don´t stray into territory covered in the 10 stories still protected by copyright. Not so fast, says the Doyle estate, which is considering an appeal this month. Descendants of the Scottish physician and author argue he continued

On Sunday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney joined Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday for a wide-ranging interview about a number of political issues that dominated the landscape following the close of the 2012 election cycle. Romney dug into the Affordable Care Act’s roll-out, the contraception mandate which he signed into law in Massachusetts, and the Winter Olympics in Russia. Asked what “bothers” him the most about the ACA roll-out, Romney said that the onerous coverage requirements frustrated him the most. “it’s not just that the president tells people that they have to buy health insurance,” Romney said, “it’s that

Kudos to President Obama for giving his wife a birthday present we all can envy, indeed covet. CBS News reports: President Barack Obama is going to give his wife the birthday present that many parents can only dream of - time off, alone, without the children.

Obamacare is a flea bitten dog that never would have been enacted without wholesale and deliberate falsehoods said over and over again by Barack Obama and every Democrat cheerleader. It never would have been enacted without legislative sleights-of-hand and backroom bribes offered to key Democrats. It never would have been enacted and Barack Obama would likely not have won a second term without the willing negligence of a toothless “watchdog press” who refused to independently investigate or report obvious lies. Now we will be bitten by this dog and indeed, as many as five million people who have lost insurance (that they

Early last summer in her Georgian-style home near Washington’s Embassy Row, Hillary Clinton met with a handful of aides for a detailed presentation on preparing for a 2016 presidential campaign. Three officials from the Democratic consulting firm Dewey Square Group — veteran field organizer Michael Whouley, firm founder Charlie Baker and strategist Jill Alper, whose expertise includes voter attitudes toward women candidates — delivered a dispassionate, numbers-driven assessment. They broke down filing deadlines in certain states, projected how much money Clinton would need to raise and described how field operations have become more sophisticated in the era of Barack Obama.

A Georgia couple was shocked and disgusted to find a racial slur scrawled on a valet ticket after a night out at a local restaurant. After Candea and Sam Aarons had dinner at the Spondivits restaurant in East Point, Ga., on New Year’s Day, they found that the valet tag still affixed to their key chain had the phrase “jungle fever” written on one side. The phrase is a racial slur for an interracial couple. Candea Aaron said she initially didn’t notice anything unusual in their interaction with the valet, but in previous visits the tag was always removed from their key before they received it back. “I’ve never had their [valet] tag left

President Obama is pushing back against attempts to rein in the National Security Agency’s electronic intelligence collections, and well he should as commander-in-chief. After one federal judge ruled that the NSA’s collection of so-called telephone metadata was likely unconstitutional even under a special intelligence court’s authority, the administration sought permission from the special court for new action and petitioned to appeal the judge’s hyperventilations. Far more grounded was another court ruling, this one upholding metadata collection. (Snip)Snowden knowingly and brazenly stole vast troves of information that were kept secret for a reason.
