I’ve been assigned to make the Thanksgiving stuffing/dressing mix this year… So does anybody have a good recipe for the mix with a “southwestern style” flavor???
OK, maybe I got a little carried away with “fantastic-urgent-breaking” thing.

Find a recipe that is well reviewed (I go to Food Network)....and then follow the basic recipe, and replace the stuff you don't like with the flavors you do like.
Personally, I HATE sweet stuff in dressing....so I use sausage, chopped walnuts, celery, onions, waterchestnuts. Then moisten, per instructions, w/chicken stock and butter.
For a SW theme, try about a half dozen New Mexico Reds in the liquid portion (see my blog, here, on how to do "real" chili sauce". I love New Mexico Reds, lots of flavor, hardly any heat. Reduce the liquid to about 2 cups, though...half way down.

For the recipe… Wonder what would happen if I substitute some cactus leaves for the water chestnuts???
By the way, sorry to see you were so viciously attacked over on the “Bozell Column Thread.” The opinions of that classless fool aren’t worth our time – hope he/she gets banned quick!
Thanks for everything… If there is a debate tonight I’ll look forward to your take on Willard’s hair LOL!

... for that real, genuine, southwestern flair, take your basic recipe and throw in some armadillo road kill.
To be really authentic, I think it has to have been flattened by a pickup truck with earth mover tires on it.
Oh, yeah, and a gallon of tequila.
Submitted by Grumpy in Arizona on Sun, 11/20/2011 - 12:51pm.
Do you mean any chiefly nocturnal, edentate mammal of the family Dasypodidae of South and tropical America - with a body encased in an armor of small bony plates? Or just any "road kill" (less human beings dressed in armor on their way to a Medieval Reenactment Event of course)?
BTW.. a gallon of Tequilla would kill me - even if I drank it over a period of a year!!
Thanks for the input!

I just tagged on to the obvious.
Although I do have a possum story....my friend came over at 4 a.m. so we could watch the Royal Wedding w/my mom. Just as dawn was breaking, we saw the baby cat (a ragdoll named Mooch, he was still only about 10 months old so still mostly white, now his coat is seriously dark Siamese looking) trotting about a foot behind a possum that was nonchalantly strolling through the back yard. The cat is beautiful, but dumb as a rock. He had no idea that wasn't his mother, it was a vile creature with big teeth. I wish I still had my dobie to sick on those things, he could catch them in 2 seconds flat and no more dangerous, bothersome possum....but fixin's for the redneck stewpot.

... Your input added "flavor" to his great remark!
Now on a less than upbeat note... I want to thank you again for providing your recipe for chili above... However I am most distressed to find out you like "beans in your chili" - especially those hated 'kidney beans.' (smile)
Submitted by Blonde on Sun, 11/20/2011 - 4:08pm.
So I'm allowed to put beans in my chili.
And I put great northerns in my green chili, too. So there!

Chili, (aside from our most precious deeply held beliefs) is a matter of indivual taste... so forgive me please... but I stiill (in my ultra tradirional ways) believe that there "ain't no brans in real chili"... forgive me...

Another great recipe is German meatloaf. To get it right, you go to a really high end, ritzy neighborhood and wait for a Mercedes to come along and kill a possum.
Now that you have the main ingredient, the rest is pretty easy.

More stars at the the Marine Corps ball than Mila Kunis, Captain says.
Submitted by jon_torlin on Sat, 11/19/2011 - 1:21pm.
I agree, the Marines deserve all the respect they earn, but the focal point was Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis doing a patriotic thing, and that made me respect them a bit more than I had before. I thought Timberlake was just a blowhard, and Kunis is just another pretty face(she still is), but for them to follow through like this, my hat's off to both of them. They both did good.
You don't hear about it too often that celebrities are doing these kinds of things, especially given how much we talk about so many different ones here on NB. So for this to happen is actually refreshing for a change. I lost track of how many movies I won't see because of certain "stars" who do certain things, much like Morgan Freeman who I've lost ALL respect for for example. I had the Batman DVDs that he was in and yes, he's not the MAIN character, but is one of the leading characters, and that was enough to throw the DVDs away.
Again, Justin and Mila, bravo!

Good morning from the north shore of an outer island in Hawaii, to all of my friends, foes, and those who couldn't care one way or the other!!! I'm heading down to the beach in a little while to play some music with some of my pals while the K.O.R.E program goes on..........with the handicapped kids and adults getting into the ocean, and catching some small waves, and enjoying the fresh air and trade winds and swaying palm trees and fantastic scenery - which we could easily take for granted, although we don't!!!
I was talking to a friend last night, and I told him that I was going to be doing this today, and that - selfish reasons aside, since I LOVE to play music!!!, it is quite inspiring and rewarding to be able to see these 'less than fortunate' people enjoying themselves and having a good day - which is dedicated to them. I hear that there are handicapped people flying in from other islands to take part in this!!! So................it could be easy for me, or us, to gripe about things, and not like the way things are going, or the rest of that bla bla bla..............but truth be told, the vast majority of us has the ability to get up every day and try and make something happen..............and these people that we are helping today do NOT have that same opportunity - although I'm sure that a lot of them do a lot LESS griping and complaining than any number of 'normal' adults that we may know!!!
So I hope that everybody has a good day with their football or their yardwork or their hobbies or any other activities. I'll probably be home in time to watch UH...........although that's not something to look forward to!!! Hahahahaha!!! And our #1 quarterback is now out for the season, so who knows how they will look, playing Fresno State.

Translation: Don't celebrate Christmas. During Christmas. It's against muslim beliefs.
Christmas banned at S.C. cancer center. In the spokesman's own words: "we need to think of the bigger picture. People who are Muslim or Jewish or have no religious beliefs come here for treatment". Yeah, right. So the beliefs of muslims trump the beliefs of the majority of this country? Since when?
I hope none of these people get Christmas off. I hope every single person employed at this center has to work 24/7 during the holidays. And I sure as hell won't ever again support any cancer center anywhere in this country, except the ones that have the ba$$s to stand up and say enough is enough. This damn political correctness has got to stop. When the he$$ did it become the law of the land, anyway?
o'bama's ban of FDR's prayer on the DC memorial falls right in line with his muslim beliefs, and is very consistant with this cancer center's rejection of Christmas.

Protein Wisdom had a pretty good take on that nonsense.

I'm back from the beach.........after about 7 hours!!! The weather was a little on-and-off, but there was some nice little waves on the sandbar by the river, and so the volunteers and the participants got to have a good time. I even think that one of the ladies actually STOOD UP on her surfboard today, which was a first!!! The dancing kid in the wheel chair from last time wasn't there, so we didn't get to see how he would do today. But it was a good scene - in spite of two or three squalls - and everybody had a good time.
An ex-client of mine actually came down to check it out, because he wants to make a charitable donation, and I think he got a kick out of the whole deal.
As usual, the music was great fun!!! I actually brought my harmonica rack and a few harps, in case I found an opening to do a little 'blowing'.......which I did - and that probably surprised a few people, since I never played any harmonica down there before.
I think the best number that we did - if I can single out one - was a pretty damn good version (if I may say so!!!) of that Johann Sebastian Bach/Procol Harem classic 'A Whiter Shade of Pale'................and this is all on acoustic instruments - and no big Hammond Organ sound to hold it together!!! But the sax player found all the notes, and my friend was playing some great counter-point guitar, and I kept a steady rhythm, with the descending notes high-lighted, like on the record. And I guess my vocals were listenable - the people clapped when we were finished!!! Maybe they were clapping BECAUSE we were finished!!!! Hahahahahaha!!!
And I got to eat a free lunch after playing for 3 hours!!!!
Submitted by TempusFugit on Sat, 11/19/2011 - 11:26pm.
...without the Hammond. I'm guessing that the sax was doing that well known intro. I'm sure it sounded great. Slightly OT but a judge ruled not long ago that the guy who played the Hammond on the original song is entitled to share in songwriter royalties for his intro, since it's a distinctive lick. The other writers of the song disagreed, saying it was merely part of the production, like the bass and drums
Submitted by killa37 on Sun, 11/20/2011 - 1:44am.
Yeah..........but I wanted to try it, just for the fun of it - and it came out pretty good. I know that the Hammond is basically the WHOLE sound.......but I wanted to see if we could pull it off anyway - and it worked out pretty well. Actually, my friend played some great 'counter' guitar - since I was just laying down a rhythm that would keep the song moving - and the sax guy was almost like the organ, you know???
And if anyone should have gotten some royalties - it should have been the Johann Sebastian Bach estate. But wasn't the guy who 'wrote' it also the organ player???? Gary Brooker??? I guess I'll have to look this up,huh?? Maybe I'll get the rest of the words too!!!

Not a bad documentary from what I've seen so far. The documentary ties together the young voices of those who were there with the present older voices.
Vietnam in HD says that Henry Kissinger negotiated a "truce" with communist North Vietnamese negotiator Le Duc Tho to leave inside South Vietnam 100,000 North Vietnamese troops in the south. With Nixon's "Vietnamization" in full swing(US troop departure) it was only a matter of time until the dwindling US forces were to the level that the North would inevitably launch their offensive and overwhelm the Army Of Viet Nam thereby communizing the entire peninsula.
This TV History Channel documentary gave viewers a reason why we lost that war:
The US policy makers were never serious about winning. For example Cambodia was a staging area for the North Vietnamese and just as our troops were within hours of the command post of the Communist North Vietnamese army Nixon halted the US advance. Nixon again halted the carpet bombing of North Vietnam again frustrating US troops from completing their assigned tasks of rescuing South Vietnam from being taken over by the communist North Vietnamese.

Motto of the GCAS: “Reason and Knowledge means knowing the difference between an area code and a ham sandwich.”
OVERVIEW: The Thanksgiving Family Forum was held in Iowa on Saturday, November 19 and it was something you had to see to be believed – it was that great!!!
Notes about link: 1. The Forum begins at the 26 minute mark with an overview to the audience. 2. The actual forum begins at the 37 minute mark.
The organizers of this Thanksgiving Forum are to complemented and honored for presenting a truly noteworthy and intimate look into the character, world and national views of the candidates… The emphasis of this debate was on the candidate’s personal views of “Character, Leadership, Freedom, Secularism, Responsibly, Values, Virtue, and Morality.” This forum also highlighted the importance of allowing God to participate in our personal and national life!
THE MODERATOR/QUESTIONER: “Pollster” Frank Luntz was the moderator and primary questioner. Luntz was magnificent. There were no bells, no time limits for the questions to be answered, no “gotcha-questions,” or attempts to get the candidates bickering among themselves!
The setting was a large dinning table at which the candidates sat and this added significantly to the informal and honest tone of the discussions and Luntz held himself to the parameters he set for himself in his preliminary address to the audience (a "must watch").
PARTICIPANT ANALYSIS: I cannot emphasize enough that there were no “Losers” in this forum… each candidate brought significant and noteworthy personal stories and views to the forum… More to the point, each candidate showed great courage by participating in this venue and exposing their “Core-values” to scrutiny.
There is no point in breaking-down each participant’s particulars because they were all wonderful and there none displayed any discernable evasion or insincerity, or reluctance to be less than forthright… (yes, even Ron Paul was good). Let me though highlight some observations about the ‘style’ of this forum as it applied to each candidate:
1. Michele Bachmann – Seemed relaxed and motivated but didn’t ‘weigh-in’ on some of the items up for debate.
2. Herman Cain – He is great in a “Board-Meeting” type atmosphere.
3. Newt Gingrich – Seems to be a master of communication in any venue where he participates.
4. Ron Paul – This was a very good event for Paul, he was given the time to answer in a way that allowed him to explain his philosophy without a imposed timeframe measured in seconds.
5. Rick Perry – Seemed very comfortable in this church setting... he was relaxed and got a few well thought-out (and sometimes humorous) items for discussion.
6. Rick Santorum – He was excellent in this style of discussion. Finally getting a chance to express his beliefs and viewpoints, he made many, many salient points about the need to return to traditional manners, procedures, and mores.
Other thoughts: This “Thanksgiving Forum” did not include either Mitt Romney or Jon Huntsman, as they both declined to participate. Since the event was mostly about traditional and basic Judeo-Christian principles, I can only wonder if they might have been wary of exposing their Mormon faith to the scrutiny demanded by the ground rules (That’s not a “conclusion” merely speculation on my part)… In any event, they were the real losers of the night and missed a great opportunity to bare their souls to the American people.

Sometimes a comment will be posted that is borderline and then removed later.
Here was the most recent as of a few minutes ago.
Subject: Top 8 reasons- Why people vote Democratic
1. They voted Democrat because they believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a
gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.
2. They voted Democrat because they believe the government will do a better job of
spending the money I earn than I would.
3. They voted Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is
offended by it.
4.They voted Democrat because they are way too irresponsible to own a gun, and they know that the local police are all they need to protect them from murderers and thieves.
5.They voted Democrat because they believe that people who can't tell us if it
will rain on Friday, can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I
don't start driving a Prius.
6. They voted Democrat because there not concerned about millions of babies being
aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.
7. They voted Democrat because they think illegal aliens have a right to free
health care, education, and Social Security benefits.
8. They voted Democrat because they believe that business should not be allowed to
make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to
the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.
As I say, lots of conservatives at HuffPo.

I'm not sure what you mean. If you mean your defense of Huffington Post on another thread concerning their fair posting policy, I never commented on that, because I agreed with you and didn't see the need to throw my two cents in.
If you mean my comment at Huffington over 'MO being booed at NASCAR', it was there last night when I checked, under the name 'dominoe4' ('ant' was apparently already taken over there). Maybe they have removed it since, I'll have to check. But I don't know why, it was clean and not rude.
The gist of it being, MO and anyone else should not be surprised, she is not only over-exposed,(we see and hear her more than our actual elected Representatives) but authoritarian policies from First Ladies are not going to be well-received. And this is a woman who still doesn't seem proud of her Country, excepting the idea that now she can embezzle from it, THAT she seems to have no problem with. I read once, that Americans are ready and willing to forgive almost any trespass, but hypocrisy is not well tolerated.
I've only posted at Huffington one other time, regarding gays and their tendency to call 'hate' every time someone disagrees with their lifestyle. I got one reply to that comment, and my retort was not printed. Sorry about the confusion if there was any, Jer and killa.
Submitted by Jer on Mon, 11/21/2011 - 12:43pm.
Thanks. As I said, after reading your initial post here, I skimmed two or three pages of HuffPo comments very quickly and therefore could have easily overlooked it. There were already over 7000 comments posted at that point and over 9000 when I checked back later, consequently a comment can become buried quite rapidly.
I was noting in passing to killa that occasionally some objectionable comments will be posted temporarily and subsequently removed. Yours is probably still there (although the embezzlement accusation against a First Lady seems a bit harsh).
Heck, I had a comment deleted here just for opining that a claim by Rush Limbaugh was ridiculous. [That deletion was definitely not the norm, however. I'm still shocked over its removal.]
Submitted by ant on Mon, 11/21/2011 - 1:15pm.
I went back and looked, from 10 pm onward, can't find it now. Probably removed. I take back anything nice I said about Huffington. Liberals like to give lip service to 'open-minds' and free speech, but they don't practice it. I probably should have flat-out lied,( like the posters calling MO "slim, graceful, and beautiful") or smeared an entire segment of the population, that seems to be about the standard for approval over there.

"Itzfatcat, great post. I'm sure you've ruffled a lot of lib feathers, but who cares?"

Now, now, you'd better be careful what you post. We can't have any common sense in these posts. Might make the libs angry. Anyway, fanned and faved.

"More than you did. You can bow at the altar of Obama until Nov. 2012. You ultra-libs are pitiful.
"Edith, you are 100% correct. Not like the dolt in the White House now."

July and August, though. Maybe their moderators were in vacation mode. All I can say is, Clevenative trolled around here for days, Moonbattery.blog has 'Lao' and a few other socialist dopes, and Lori Ziganto had a fool called 'molten' that stalked her around, just to name a few and they are all permitted a voice.
What I find hilarious over at Huff-po is the hand-wringing over MO being booed. Such short memories libs have, how many times have conservatives like Ann Coulter or David whatsisname (I forget, jewish name, started Newsreal blog and Discover The Networks) been shouted down at speaking engagements? Many conservative guests get physically attacked at "open-minded" college campuses and still press on. But, lordy-lordy, no expressing yourself when your liberal elite betters are present. Personally, I don't really care, shows them for the little weaklings they are, if they're going to Waaaahhhh over this, it's kinda hard to be worried when they start shrieking "Revolution". As evidenced by this example, and others, like OWS attempt to stop a conservative bloggers conference, all you have to do is push back a little, and the libs will cry and go find some old lady to knock down the stairs.

Well, your comment still appears on your profile page but it looks like it got axed on the comment thread, which means some of those I previously posted here as examples may fall within that category, too. Here is a sample of acceptable dissenting opinion [and there's plenty of it.] posted around the time you commented.
The Truth Hurts You
making libs mad by giving them facts!

Looks like the sheep and paid Soros bloggers are all upset over this. How come you were not upset when 4 and 5 year old children walking to school last week in the Wall Street area of NY were threatened by the Obama endorsed Occupy protestors?????? Looks like that story did not make it here. You can look it up on google. You are now getting angry because I have given you facts you can look up. The facts have hurt you. The truth hurts you!
Finally, there's a huge distinction between booing an Ann Coulter versus booing a First Lady.

There's also a huge distinction between a citizen saying, "For the first time in my life, I'm proud of my Country", and a First Lady saying it. Also between an elected official promoting tax-funded policies and an unelected happens-to-be-wife doing the same. IMO, she deserved every boo she received. But I gotta run now and do some painting, talk to ya later.

note she addressed, explained and clarified the statement on more than one occasion, and has repeatedly expressed her love for America and her pride in being a citizen of this country.

And Obama expressed, explained and clarified his statements about a great many things, doesn't mean they aren't lying. Why would you seek to "fundamentally transform" an America you love?

It's the old "your husband is a lying Muslim commie so we're booing you" rationale. Sure makes a handy catch-all justification for just about any show of disrespect. Rudeness doesn't defy logic; it mocks common courtesy.

Okay, wasn't this also around the time she said Obama "was gonna fix America's broken soul.." Really? Is that pride? Gee, I love my children but their souls are broken.
What the Wookie's explanation was, "For the first time in my adult life, I'm proud of my Country." she meant because Americans are engaging in political duties/discourse. Except;
That is not what she said, you just can't add BS to your statements whenever you like, "Gee, I really hate you Jer", but I meant to say now that you're doing something I like, I don't hate you. Sorry, doesn't work that way.
Who is she to judge whether Americans are fully engaged in politics? Because her worthless ass husband was elected? Seems to me that happened more out of ignorance and identity politics, rather than attention to public policy and political savvy.
Even with her lame excuse tacked on at the end, it still translates into "I, heretofore, was not proud of my country."

BTW, I don't think 'embezzlement' is harsh. If I took money from my employer for personal travel and vacation, at the very least I'd be out of a job. If the bi-atch can't take a little booing, maybe she should try being an obese child whose physical appearance has been made into a national issue.
