    Uh, will this like be the ‘new’ source for the column?
    Do comments go directly to you or are they shared?
    Does a response to the daily go just to you or are they shared?

    Ahhh… try the Other About….

    • George O'Connell says:

      I still can’t tell BUT from ‘my observation’ this appears to be public. Did you get my ‘comments’ this AM on today’s fish? I sort of ‘lost it’ the first time and the 2nd time it appears ‘rejected’???
      As usual, another timely comment that ‘loses’ its translation after a by and by…<:

    Well it appears as all the comments are public. Now all the curmudgeons, and contrarians will be able to meet and greet.
    Now everyone “like” this comment if you want to defund Obamacare!

  4. John Croix says:

    Ah but being the antagonist, and mutterer is an illustrious profession, and sorely needed in these times. I am proud to be counted amongst the exiguous and the elite. I sit at the feet of the soveriegn of rectitude and verisimilitude.

  5. George O'Connell says:

    I also used to use words such as bloviate BUT O’Reilly sort of ‘stole my thunder’ and I didn’t want to be ‘associated’ or accused of lifting from him (funny that way) so I will stick to Pontificate or even occasionally just plain old Patronize – a specialty of one algore and lerch.
    However I try to avoid it, long words sometimes sneak into the mix.
    Of course I am speaking of smiles, DEFINITELY the longest word in the language (or all languages) as there is A MILE BETWEEN EACH S.

    I rest my case……or back to the meds, whichever shall come first.

      Jack likes to tweak me at times because I made him look up a word once. I keep a thesaurasus close at had to tweak him back when he tries to nail me.

        Beware and eschew pompous prolix, it has been said. My sesquipedalianism tends to follow the admonition of the inestimable William F. who said: “I am lapidary but not eristic when I use big words.”

        I trust this answers all of your queries, musings and ruminations on this topic.

    Excellent accomplishment, sending ‘Mr’ Jak to the book….
    Try explaining to someone that if you aren’t a good speller, the dictionary is just another ‘book’.

      • John Croix says:

        But I do not understand why The great William F would censure you for being a an argumentative stone cutter. Perhaps your use of the thesaurus has led you astray. But your sesquipedalianism is arduous on occassion.

    • John Croix says:

      Today’s Fish says Virginia – Where – I am USN retired and lived in VA for almost 20 years in the navy and after I retired. Portsmouth, Norfolk, Va Beach. Now reside back in my home town in Texas.

  7. George O'Connell says:

    Warrenton at present…got out of Navy (8+yrs) here in 64 and stayed. Originally from upstate NY.

    • John Croix says:

      based on that you’re a couple of years older than me. I enlisted in Dec ’61 – spent most of my time on the west coast.
      Warrenton – you’re awfully close to that den of inequity DC.

  8. George O'Connell says:

    DEC ’61, HP’ted in Yokosuka, just coming back from 2nd Bangkok visit and being prepared for Sub Sco by the crew of the Archerfish……(the SS not SSN)… RM2 at the time. Good life…went in 11/10/56…..

    • John Croix says:

      Small world – I was homeported Yoko also – later ’76-79. I just got a long article on Yoko in the old days – you’ll enjoy – Drop me a line at john.croix@reagan.com and I’ll send it to you. I started Navy as ADJ (jet mechanic) but went to nuke school and converted to MM – retired as a SCPO in 1988

    I recently read that only 5% of Southerners owned slaves. Could that mean that the other 95% were willing to fight in the Civil War to defend ownership of slaves? I think not.

    • jaksavin says:

      As some 10% of Southerners owned land it seems like that number is accurate. Do not let facts confuse you as the Libs have long figgered out. As it is easier to ask forgiveness than permission, the Left will always obfuscate, twist and outright lie then it is up to us to call them on it, by which time the damage is done. Then you have the Archie Bunker mentality that “well it was in the paper/on the news” ignoring the fact that the media are in on the grift. GB
