The power of non-prayer

Or maybe it’s the power of mockery:  either way, it worked.

Thank you, almighty Ceiling Cat!

    I just lurve Quebec. We’d be way closer to the Nutty USA’s politics and sensibilities without it.

    The power of prayer. Ptoooi.

    fern hill – Score (another) one for the power of rationality.

    I think it’s more about the power of “Gee…I would really like to get elected again…”

    How is SUZY going to spin this?

    fern hill – Yeh. I’d so rather the Québécois were trying to exert their influence over the rest of us rather than keeping to themselves or trying to get away. I long for their political support for us anglos — at least when it’s progressive. I have an old Québécois friend who told me a few years back as he watched his son establishing himself as an adult, “Da kids are on a diff’rente buzz.”

    Eek! I didn’t mean I long for the support for us anglos — I meant how wonderful it would be if we could throw our progressive support together more on a lot of things. (Damn this no edit- feature! I need more coffee.)

    I hate to tell you this mouthyorange, but our coffee maker is on the outs.

    “Quebec hardly has any anti-choice movement” maybe? ;) She already set that one up in the original post, so she can just run with it.

    orange – I know what you mean: Canada needs more Quebec. I quite agree.

    Here, have a nice cuppa mocha latte.

    Dr. Prole – Why aren’t you in church?? It’s almost time! :lol: :P

    (Also do you have a twitter account?)

  10. 10 mouthyorange Sunday, August 9, 2009 at 8:00 am

    Prole — I recommend we get us a French Press. Should get us a really good one. If we don’t drop it and break it it’ll last a long time.

  11. 11 Dr. Prole Sunday, August 9, 2009 at 11:52 am

    JJ, I just got back from church – the church of hot yoga. Amen and Namaste! :)

    No twitter account yet. I’m still resisting. Yes, I know resistance is futile…

    MO, as for our coffee maker, we have a small French Press, but I’m thinking something more industrial sized with a thermal carafe. I’ve got our Kicking Horse “Kick Ass” beans ready to go (boycotting Starbucks ATM because of their endorsement deal w/ Morning Joe). Caffeinate me, STAT!

    JJ,

    Why do leftists spell the as “teh”? I don’t understand the joke.

  13. 13 mouthyorange Sunday, August 9, 2009 at 12:01 pm

    Kicking Horse “Kick Ass” beans sound fine. ‘Though I like Just Us beans best of all.

    Thermal carafe is a good idea. Can we find a big one with a glass lining? They keep it hot longer and aren’t toxic.

    What are we going to do if we prefer different kinds of coffee?

  14. 14 Dr. Prole Sunday, August 9, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    Mouthy Orange Me,

    What are we going to do if we prefer different kinds of coffee?

    We’ll make both.

  15. 15 mouthyorange Sunday, August 9, 2009 at 12:24 pm

    “We’ll make both.”

    A very fair solution.

  16. 16 Dr. Prole Sunday, August 9, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    We’re level-headed, after all. ;)

  17. 17 JJ Sunday, August 9, 2009 at 6:17 pm

    RA – You mean “teh” joke ;)

  18. 18 Frank Frink Sunday, August 9, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    Why do leftists spell the as “teh”? I don’t understand the joke.

    Raphael is so not aware of all internet traditions.

    It’s just a very common typo and usually the result of typing too fast. It was quickly embraced by the l33tsp33k community and began to be frequently used on message boards and forums. Then world domination.

    Similar to the way ‘pwned’ became a standard board, forum etc… substitute for ‘owned’. Started out as a typo.

    ps – Google and Urban Dictionary ‘R UR friendz’ (sic)

    And it has nothing to do with left or right. Really, nothing at all. Except perhaps that a somewhat greater percentage of right-wingers could be humour and/or technology impaired.

  20. 20 mouthyorange Monday, August 10, 2009 at 6:49 am

    FF & RB – How do you guys know this guy isn’t baiting you?

  21. 21 Cornelius T.Zen Monday, August 10, 2009 at 8:30 am

    Good morrow, all!

    mouthy orange – while “Raphael Alexander” has been known to cruise progressive blogsites for the purpose of baiting, it’s more likely that he’s too lazy to look it up himself – check out the quality of his stuff at the National Post.

  23. 23 RealityBites Monday, August 10, 2009 at 10:31 am

    mouthyorange the question was so dumb in its assumption that it’s a uniquely left-wing thing to do that it never occured to me he’d come up with something that stupid deliberately.

  24. 24 Frank Frink Tuesday, August 11, 2009 at 1:19 am

    mouthyorange, I considered the the possibility that baiting might have been in play, which is why I didn’t address the the ‘lefties’ comment.

    But I also considered two other things: 1) as deBeauxOs speculated, he’s too lazy to look for the info; 2) RA has claimed in the past to have Asperger’s Syndrome. That could either be just an excuse he uses to explain his poor social interaction skills, communication difficulties, restricted areas of interest, limited empathy and perception difficulties or he just truly does have poor social interaction skills, communication difficulties, restricted areas of interest, limited empathy and perception difficulties.

    And sometimes I just like to play along with wee Mr. Ruffles for my own amusement.

  25. 25 mouthyorange Tuesday, August 11, 2009 at 2:19 am

    dBo, RB, and FF –
    :D :D :D

    Oh — and somehow I raced past your offer of mocha latte, JJ! Mocha latte is my very favourite.
