"Today September 27, 2009, I replied by e-mail to a North Carolina Republican Party Chairman, who was so shaken up by the fact, THE GEORGE HUTCHINS 2010 CAMPAIGN dared to compare his Leader, Barack Hussein Obama, to Sanford and Son."

40.41: Yeah, I almost linked one of those, but in the end decided the local interest in the Raleigh one would be greater. The whole thing is an interesting dance with Naziiism mostly just praising some "tangential" leaders and complaining about procedures at Nuremberg etc while pledging support for Israel. However, there is one arresting part where right beneath pictures of Hitler, Goering and Goebbels it says,

In respect to the solid N.I.M. INTERNATIONAL belief concerning, the persecuting any population is wrong and unjustified, it is clear, even though MOST modern Israelis are the direct descendants of European Jewish populations who left Europe since 1945, after the end of World War Two, the Israelis of today, in the year 2008, through 60 years of development, hard trials, hard won battles, dedicated labor, hard earned self respect, work ethics, industry, science, and numerous tested methods of operation, are not the same Jews the Nazis in Europe hated during the years surrounding World War Two.
followed a bit later by:
Israel is a clear demonstration, if a specific Population, specific Race, specific Culture, or Specific Religion, is NOT wanted in their own nations of birth, they can successfully form their own nation. Israel is a clear success story in this type of EXODUS.

Am curious if the gloves really come off in the German-language parts of the site.

It is time to for Israel to pay. Israel should take over all payments to surviving so-called Holocaust or "Holohoax" claimed victims. It is time for the U.S. and Britain to receive their investment back through having a large financial burden lifted. Germany has paid for long enough.

And let's not forget the diatribe against the July 20 plotters and repeated assertions that they deserved to die and we should be thankful they didn't succeed. Or the: the Nazis started out great and Hitler remained awesome, accusations of racism and crimes are lies, lies, lies.

The guy who posted this movie and other interesting movies on youtube puts a lot of political stuff on his profile page that makes me want to watch the movies elsewhere. (The page actually looks better now than I remember it from a few months ago when I first found it while looking for old films.)

So I haven't actually watched anything he's posted. I can't tell if I should just watch the movies I want to see anyway, or go on avoiding the channel. I'd have no problems watching movies posted by someone with the same views if those views were not on the same page as the movies.

I once knew, at the use level, not the rule level, how to use commas, but now I find myself quite often trying to figure out if I should or should not have one in the latter part of sentences, which can go on for some time, seeing as how I just write whatever in blog comments and that translates into all my other writing. I usually take this as a sign that what I really need is to use a period and break things up into more than one sentence; however, at times this leads to choppy writing. I don't like that.

59: Seriously. Actually. One of the most urgently tendered criticisms of my academic writing, late on, was that my sentences were just too long, with too many clauses, and so on and so forth. I was advised to chop it up into smaller sentences, which would also force me to spell out what I was packing into all those clauses and somewhat parenthetical remarks.

I don't like that, no. It feels unnatural, and yeah, choppy; I have trouble achieving and sustaining any kind of flow that feels natural. It does wind up breeding more paragraphs -- to explain what apparently needed more unpacking -- which is all to the good, but felt a bit like I was producing a primer. Didactic! Yuck!

I don't think you overuse semi-colons; they are a useful form of punctuation, and I encourage you to deploy them as you see fit; I use semi-colons with some frequency myself, in fact; however, I do wonder whether it would be a bit much to separate every pair of declarative independent clauses with a semi-colon; sometimes periods are just what the situation calls for.

I'd also fry absolutely anything in duck fat

I'll second that. When I lived by myself, a large proportion of my meals consisted of sauteed vegetables (whatever I had around) over couscous. The choice of fat made all the difference. Duck fat was definitely the best.

If you've really got a lot of duck fat, and a bit of leftover raw duck bits, I would: grab the ducks part and boil them in chicken stock. Take the stock (made dark by some method - wine? beef stock? reduction?) and use it for casserole roasting a chicken. Along with the chicken, I'd dry roast the turnips and baste them using the duck fat.

Duck (flavors) and turnips go together really really well (thank you, JC) and turnips are really cheap.

I'm happy to issue general exclamation points over the state of the insurance industry, without actually foaming at the mouth personally. This is me not talking about it. You see.

I was not aware sprouts came on a stalk until you mentioned it. I don't believe I have every purchased a sprout that wasn't cooked. It isn't that I don't like them, its just that I like broccoli and cauliflower better (and cabbage). And I think they call draw from the same pool, nutrient-wise.
