Nothing’s over until we say it’s over…


Go here for video.  Same exact situation.  Sometimes things do go wrong.  Best to follow the example set for us all by Saint Bluto, when asked the question:  " What the hell we supposed to do,  you moron?"

"This could be the greatest night of our lives..... not me, I'm not goin' to take this...."

This is but a blip, a bump in the road.  It may lead to much better and brighter things in the long run.

Psalm 146

Praise the Lord, O my soul.

2I will praise the Lord all my life;

I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

3Do not put your trust in princes,

in mortal men, who cannot save.

4When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;

on that very day their plans come to nothing.

5Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,

whose hope is in the Lord his God,

6the Maker of heaven and earth,

the sea, and everything in them—

the Lord, who remains faithful forever.

10The Lord reigns forever,

your God, O Zion, for all generations.

Praise the Lord.

  • Sitting here in the ancient city of Jerusalem, weeping and wailing against the follies of mankind, I needed this. Thank you.

  • Carlos Eire

    Thank YOU, Ziva...

    First chance you get, if you deem it proper, please stuff a printout of the post in some large chink in the Wailing Wall.

  • I will happily do so Carlos. I visited part of the Old City yesterday; there is comfort to be found standing on ancient stone.

  • Mr. Mojito

    Ziva, shed a tear for me as well.

    It's 1959 all over again ... it seems like we keep repeating the same mistakes as a species.

    I need church, but will have to wait till Sunday.

  • Mr. Mojito

    Ziva, maybe it was wrong of us to nominate someone who thinks the real Jerusalem is in Missouri?

    I was always worried about Mitt's Mormonism and wonder if it hurt him. Obama was smart not to openly talk about it, but it also meant Romney couldn't openly talk about his faith. And faith for us Republicans is a huge thing.

    I can't help but feel like Gingrich would have won tonight.

  • Mr. Mojito, I've cried buckets, so plenty of tears to go around. I was for Gingrich, but came to appreciate and fully support Mitt. We could blame Mitt for this loss, but not honestly. He would have been an excellent president, he would have provided just the kind of leadership we need to bring us back from the precipice. Americans,or at least that 47% no longer want a president, they want a king and being of subservient mind, the lies, corruption, joblessness, deficit, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, class warfare, the Constitution and facts just don't matter. They won, simple as that, and yes dear Mr. Mojito here we are back at our personal ground zero, 1959. I'm sure they are smiling in Havana tonight. All we can do is keep documenting the truth, and fighting for freedom as best we can.

  • Looks like you commies in South Florida gave the state to Dear Leader. I'm growing a beard. Where can I get a set of old-style green fatigues, Comrade?

    "Looks like you commies in South Florida gave the state to Dear Leader."

    Indeed. According to news reports at this hour, it was a complete travesty. Don't worry, though, in the fantasy world that many here inhabit it was a good night for the GOP. :rolleyes:

  • Fuzzy, you're officially banned. Go fuck yourself.

    I live in Portugal, and voted absentee, since I am resident of Florida. From a perspective of living outside the USA, what hurt the republican Party the most was the primary race, it was bloody, despicting republicans as insensitive facist cavemen and we lacked a clear leader in that primary and the primary electoral based was polarized. Those two Senate candidates comments on rape did not help at all. While I am a conservative, a Gingrich man, I think the USA independent voters tend to vote more for a moderate. However, Obama is the most liberal/leftie president the USA has elected. Even Carter, was a fiscal conservative and was easilly defeated by Reagan, which became the leader and spokeperson for the Republican Party. I am baffled..... and sad, I know were Europe is going and the USA is following its path.

    These morons have elected Hugo Chaves, Fidel Castro, Putin´s, Communist China´s candidate.

  • Does this mean we're going to build a deathmobile and crash the homecoming parade and then go on to have distinguished senatorial careers?
