USA, USA, USA



What an awesome ending to the weekend, huh? Despite the fact that it cut off the last 10 minutes of the Next Great Restaurant finale here and I had to look online to find the result, this was the best news that we've seen in a long, long time. And fuck those people who say either "Oh, I won't believe it until I see the body" or "I'm not happy he was killed, he's still a human being". Fuck off. First, the President isn't going to schedule a statement hours ahead of time unless it's 100% confirmed. And second, that guy lost any humane treatment a long time ago. Getting shot in the head and kilt wasn't enough in my opinion. I wish that he would have been shot and didn't die right away and had to suffer for a while before he died. That still probably wouldn't have been enough. I won't go so far to say that the world is a safer place today, because I don't think that's true at all. But having the key figure head of the most dangerous organization in the world dead is a giant step in the right direction. Obviously that's a huge understatement.
Here are a few highlights of the evening for me...
First, I hate how Obama pronounces Pakistan as "Pock"istan. That irks me.
Second, it's amazing how quickly the information gets out to the media. Two hours after Obama's statement, dude on CNN had the Google earth map up on the screen and was pointing out the compound where this operation took place. I can't wait until this either becomes a movie or someone like the Discovery Channel makes a show that describes how this operation unfolded, like how Discovery made that show about how the Navy snipers kilt* those pirates who had the US Merck ship captain.
Third, so much for that "he's hiding out in the lawless tribal region of the Afghan/Pockistan* border" theory. It sounds like Osama has been in this area for a while now.
Finally, I can't believe all of the people that are out on the streets partying at 2:00am (EST). It's pretty crazy seeing that in this country. It looks like how places like Egypt looked when their government was toppled, with thousands of people celebrating in the streets. Except this is during the middle of the night.

I will just leave this post at that for now, because nothing else that happened this weekend really matters, and this is going to be pretty much all that people are going to talk about today.

In conclusion: God Bless America!

Im glad he is dead, but I certainly worry about retaliation and who is going to step up in his place

H said...

And it probably is not endearing us to the rest of the world that we are out in the streets celebrating the death, even though that is what they would do if Obama or another U.S. leader had been killed.

USA! USA! USA! said...

obama talking like he strapped a gun on and did this himself

easy Barack, easy

Blue said...

how fucking awesome would it feel to be on that navy seal team right about now

Blue said...

yeah, i hid out disguised as a bush for like 6 months, but it was totally worth it

Blue said...

"obama talking like he strapped a gun on and did this himself"

obama should have waited to make the announcement until the re-election time.


that's what GW would have done

Blue said...

i had this thought, the guy(s) that kilt him, do they ever get to talk about it?

do they have to wait until the government de-classifies the info?

I would guess they'd have to retire from the seals

USA! USA! USA! said...

"that's what GW would have done"

right cuz he's the one who ordered the search and kill right after 9/11

not that specific one but he was to be pursued until captured or killed

Blue said...

Navy Seal reaction after killing Osama

Blue said...

GW didn't care about Osama, he cared about killing Saddam Hussein, and then they caught him coincidentally right before the election

USA! USA! USA! said...

GW didn't care about Osama

stop it

Blue said...

Obama's gonna spin it that way

look, I found him and kilt him within 2 years of taking office.

how hard was that

KSM

typo

USA! USA! USA! said...

good job phillies fans for once in your miserable disgusting lives you got something right

Blue said...

why would they bury him at sea.

why not put his body at ground zero so everyone can walk by and spit on it?

USA! USA! USA! said...

its better that way

tem said...

"Bin Laden's body was later buried at sea, an official said"


what? why?

that will just make conspiracy people say we never got him.

USA! USA! USA! said...

the compound the Paki's knew about were Osama was kilt

tem said...

i found elvis alive.

hung out with him for the weekend.

then he died.

i threw him into the ocean.

but he was totally alive until sunday.

fun guy.

USA! USA! USA! said...

to avoid a shrine or some crazy person digging up the body i guess is why they did that

dna results confirm it was bin laden

USA! USA! USA! said...

"The argument for releasing them: to ensure that the public knows and can appreciate that he's dead. There is of course skepticism throughout the world that the US government claim that it killed bin Laden is true.

The argument against releasing the pictures: they’re gruesome. He has a massive head wound above his left eye where he took bullet, with brains and blood visible."

release them so tem believes it happened

USA! USA! USA! said...

Saudi Arabia was offered the body but declined.

Spaceman Spiff said...

has steve showed up to collect his 1000$ yet

Tyler said...

"I certainly worry about retaliation and who is going to step up in his place"

He hasn't been in direct command for a very long time. Whoever is in charge of al-Qaeda has been running it for awhile now. I don't think there's going to be much retaliation, but that's why they keep saying we need to keep up the vigilance when it comes to homeland security.

tem said...

"release them so tem believes it happened"


tem = doubting Thomas



dyswidt?

tem said...

"dna results confirm it was bin laden"


did we have previous dna of bin laden for some reason?

USA! USA! USA! said...

there might be a initial spike or an initial us embassy bombing somewhere but this war on terror will go on as long as we are all alive for sure and t's right whoever is running qaeda now has been doing so for quite some time

Spaceman Spiff said...

"Whoever is in charge of al-Qaeda has been running it for awhile now. I don't think there's going to be much retaliation"


"Some of the most senior al Qaeda commanders were among those rounded up and taken to the Cuban centre. They told interrogators that al Qaeda terrorists threatened to unleash a 'nuclear hellstorm' if Osama Bin Laden were caught or killed"

Spaceman Spiff said...

nvm, the nuke they will supposedly unleash is in europe

tem said...

spiff links people getting runned* over by cars daily. i think the american public could handle a picture of dead bin laden.

tem said...

"nvm, the nuke they will supposedly unleash is in europe"

ha. that'd be dumb. the radiation would drift right over the middle east.

smrt* terrists*

Beth said...

"what? why?
that will just make conspiracy people say we never got him."

I read in one place that no country would accept him for burial and that the US wanted to comply with the Muslim requirement of burial within 24 hours.

USA! USA! USA! said...

that's right

tem said...

my dna question was serious though.

how did we get his dna in the first place to confirm the dead body dna was his?

and how comone they confirmed it in hours when it takes labs for rape and murder trails weeks to confirm dna?

USA! USA! USA! said...

dont worry they will release that picture

USA! USA! USA! said...

"and how comone they confirmed it in hours when it takes labs for rape and murder trails weeks to confirm dna?"

DNA doesnt take weeks, dont you watch law and order bro

maybe they acquired it at some point during that raid, his toothbrush, hair or maybe they had it already in the past

hasnt been explained yet

USA! USA! USA! said...

acquire DNA from the scene, compare to the blood spilled from his body

USA! USA! USA! said...

The U.S. is believed to have collected DNA samples from bin Laden family members in the years since the 9/11 attacks that triggered the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan. It was unclear whether the U.S. also had fingerprints or some other means to identify the body on site.

Keef said...

"I read in one place that no country would accept him for burial and that the US wanted to comply with the Muslim requirement of burial within 24 hours."


I like to picture it like a game of hot potato. The 24 hour clock is winding down, we are calling other countries to see who wants the body. Noone wants it. Tickticktickticktick, fuck, we gotta get rid of it. Tickticktickticktick. ::dumps him in ocean::

USA! USA! USA! said...

In order to confirm that the body was, in fact, Bin Laden, U.S. officials subpoenaed DNA from Bin Laden's sister (who had died in a Boston hospital) and found a match. All told, the operation took around 40 minutes to complete.

USA! USA! USA! said...

so basically they did an extensive DNA analysis through various tests and comparasions

plus the seals on the boat did a facial recognition type test that was a match

Spaceman Spiff said...

EP relax

USA! USA! USA! said...

you think tony soprano, paulie walnuts and sil were on that boat and helped the seals toss him overboard?

i say yes

Keef said...

Mize's Klan buddy is a dumb shit

USA! USA! USA! said...

brilliant

Spaceman Spiff said...

who will be the next champ

Keef said...

Crazy we almost got Osama and Gadhafi on back to back days

Keef said...

"who will be the next champ"


Mize's peepee

Spaceman Spiff said...

some guy was tweeting about the raid while it happened

tem said...

"DNA doesnt take weeks, dont you watch law and order bro"

i don't watch law and order or csi or whatever.

i just know that when some rape is in the paper they always say the DNA results will take weeks.

tem said...

"In order to confirm that the body was, in fact, Bin Laden, U.S. officials subpoenaed DNA from Bin Laden's sister (who had died in a Boston hospital) and found a match."


this is just more fuel to a conspiracy fire.

they didn't even have a sample of his DNA.

so basically all they proved is that we killed A brother of that chick. can't prove it was the brother we were looking for.

tem said...

change we to they.

i shouldn't be dropping "we's" i didn't do anything to bring bin laden in.

Keef said...

"i shouldn't be dropping "we's" i didn't do anything to bring bin laden in."



How do you know it was bin laden?

tem said...

science apparently

tem said...

ftr i think it was bin laden.

but baiting el pad with conspiracy theories is too fun.

Keef said...

Cmk was talking to csil on the phone last night.

Cmk: did you see that bin laden was killed?

Csil: I thought we already killed him last year


She is so smrt

Keef said...

Csil's bf is a firefighter and plays football in some FF league. Not rough touch, but full pads tackle. The Phoenix team plays against depts from around the country. On Saturday they played here against FDNY's team. I thought that was Uncle Joey after what happened last night.

Blue said...

what happened last night?

tem said...

cops and firefighters get to have leagues and shit like that.

Blue said...

i asked cmblue how long she thought it would be before video of the raid was online

i said 3 days, she didn't think ever

Blue said...

i guess all that lipsynching to brittany spears finally paid off for the military

Blue said...

does the guy who shot him get the $25million?

Blue said...

or whatever the bounty was up to

Blue said...

the US sent a strong message today.

if you fuck with us, we'll get you


it may take us 10 years, a totally unrelated war and billions of dollars...but we'll get you

D said...

chinese animated osama raid dramatization

hilarity

Blue said...

I would think one of two things could happen now.

either Al Queda gets pisst and launches some crazy attacks

or there is a lot of infighting as to who is now the figurehead and leader, and they fight amongst themselves for the next few years.


or, wanting to be the new leader a whole bunch of rogue guys do crazy shit that's easy to squash because they're dumb

tem said...

yes, either one of those three things could occur.

Blue said...

or 4th...nothing happens

Blue said...

or 5th

in 3 months Osama realeses a new rap album with previously unheard footage

tem said...

"does the guy who shot him get the $25million?"

no. it goes to me. i told the military a few years ago that bin laden was in pakistan.

tem said...

actually i said he was on earth. but pakistan is on earth.

Blue said...

jug hasn't been here today,

maybe he was part of the navy seal group that ambushed bin laden

Blue said...

or maybe it's a government holiday

Keef said...

jug has like every other Monday off or some shit

Keef said...

So will this help gas prices go back down?

yep, and other than his anti-american stance bin laden was a pretty cool guy.

Hey Osama. Time to diiiiiieeeeeeeee

H said...

"i just know that when some rape is in the paper they always say the DNA results will take weeks."

Usually because county medical examiners and labs have a large backlog and they don't usually bump a case in thenline just because it is high profile. Im guessing the U.S. Military performed this particular test.

H said...

"In order to confirm that the body was, in fact, Bin Laden, U.S. officials subpoenaed DNA from Bin Laden's sister (who had died in a Boston hospital) and found a match"

Yay Boston!

FemH wants to call Keef now. NS.

Keef said...

The death of Osama bin Laden is a clear signal to the world that "al-Qaida is something in the past," the U.S. chief of counterterrorism said Monday.
John Brennan, President Barack Obama's deputy national security adviser and chief counterterrorism coordinator, said the message could be boiled down this way: "Bin Laden, al-Qaida — old news."




I think that's dumb

H said...

And no she actually didn't this weekend.

Keef said...

"FemH wants to call Keef now. NS"


Haha. You guys fight over bait?

No we're not fighting. Im sitting next to her and she asked what I was laughing about. Haha.

Ftr she is laughing about it.

ns

H said...

You've never heard the expression "mind your p's and q's"?

Keef said...

"Ftr she is laughing about it."


I like that she was going to call me out on the kiss comment, but the femh comment was cool.

H said...

I've heard a few different theories about the origin of it, but basically means mind your business.

tem said...

You've never heard the expression "mind your p's and q's"?



i've heard it, just have no idea what p's and q's actually stand for.

tem said...

i know what it means.

i know how to use it in context.

i just have no idea what p and q specifically refer to.

tem said...

i hate work today

tem said...

1. Mind your pints and quarts. This is suggested as deriving from the practice of chalking up a tally of drinks in English pubs (on the slate). Publicans had to make sure to mark up the quart drinks as distinct from the pint drinks. This explanation is widely repeated but there's little to support it, apart from the fact that pint and quart begin with P and Q.

2. Advice to printers' apprentices to avoid confusing the backward-facing metal type lowercase Ps and Qs, or the same advice to children who were learning to write. I've never heard any suggestion that anyone should 'mind their Ds and Bs' though, even though that makes just as much sense and has the added benefit of rhyming, which would have made it a more attractive slogan.

3. Mind your pea (jacket) and queue (wig). Pea jackets were short rough woollen overcoats, commonly worn by sailors in the 18th century. Perruques were full wigs worn by fashionable gentlemen. It is difficult to imagine the need for an expression to warn people to avoid confusing them.

'Pee', as a name for a man's coarse coat, is recorded as early as 1485, so it is possible that that is what Dekker was referring to in his 1602 citation. If so, that usage long predates all others and we have the definitive origin of 'pee and kue'. 'Kue' or 'cue' as the name of a man's wig isn't known until well after 1602 though, so it still isn't certain what Dekker meant by it.

4. Mind your pieds (feet) and queues (wigs). This is suggested to have been an instruction given by French dancing masters to their charges. This has the benefit of placing the perruque in the right context - as long as we accept the phrase as being originally French. However, there's no reason to suppose it is from France and no version of the phrase exists in French.

5. Another version of the 'advice to children' origin has it that 'Ps and Qs' derives from 'mind your pleases and thank-yous''. That is widely touted as an origin but seems to me to be a back-formation, i.e. an explanation fitted to explain the phrase after it was coined in some other context. 'Pleases and thank-yous' doesn't appear to lead to 'Ps and Qs'.

Keef said...

Dude, you didn't need to cnp all that. I told you, it means mind your business

/h

Keef said...

FTR, I don't think it means mind your business. It's more like, mind your manners

H said...

Possibly Keef. I've always heard it used in the context of mind your business but who really knows?

H said...

And I think you'd like gfH, Keef. She has a very similar sense of humor and sarcasm as you do. Again, NS.

""When Cal defensive end Cameron Jordan was taking a tour through his new business home -- the New Orleans Saints practice facility in Metairie, La. -- on Saturday, his cell phone rang.

"Hi,'' said the voice on the other end. "Jordan? This is the Cleveland Browns.

We're getting ready to pick you ... ''

"Uh, yeah, this is Cameron Jordan,'' he said. "The Saints already picked me.''

There was an awkward pause, and Cameron Jordan said: "I think you mean Jordan Cameron, you're looking for Jordan Cameron. That's not me.''

Cameron Jordan, the 24th pick in the draft, then hung up the phone. And the Cleveland Browns, presumably, found the number for USC tight end Jordan Cameron, phoned him, and made him the 102nd pick in the draft. ""

so's your face

Contract the Gophers said...

so I had to give a presentation to a bunch of the heads of legal programs like ours around the State of Minnesota this morning down in the Cities.

I spent A TON of time getting everything ready for the presentation, since it's uncommon to have a staff attorney be in at the meeting, and I don't want to come off looking like an idiot or make my boss look bad. I'm finally feeling ready to go; 15 minutes before the meeting I go to drink my SuperAmerica coffee, and the top (which was secured) comes off and about 1/4 the coffee spills all over me.

I don't have towels in my car, but I did have my suitcase, and the only clean thing I had were boxers.

So I'm outside the building hiding in my car cleaning myself and my car off with underwear PRAYING nobody at the meeting rolls up and sees me (I hadn't met most of them before, would not be an ideal first impression).

A car did creep up and see me, but luckily they went going to another office in the building.

Also fortunately I was wearing a dark blue blazer and brown pants...I don't think they could tell, I couldn't in the mirror.

Keef said...
