It was a few years ago. I was on MIRT at the time, so I got to ban him at least once.

You motivated me to hunt it down, because it was around Christmas and I remember writing something about it called "I banned Ken Ham for Christmas" (this is what those memory cells are doing, which should be being used to remember to buy dog food. Sorry, pooch )

I posted it in meta, but i can still find it in my journal! Hmmm.

Here it is, from Dec. of 2012:

I think I have a new Christmas song

I banned Ken Ham for Christmas
I sent him his MIRT PPR
I banned Ken Ham for Christmas
I banned him, he wont get too far

Our Christmas feast was lacking
Our Pizza was looking quite bare
It needed some old time troll whacking
Some christmas Ham for MIRT to share

He wanted to give us the good news
How dinos and man got along
But I banned Ken Ham for Christmas
I called his shit silly and wrong.

Robert Hunter, i aint. Oh well, merry xmas everyone!

Edited to add: IIRC it was commentary (translation: open mockery) about this book which drew his ire or ired his drew or whatever.

I'm not a HRC supporter, but I'll give her credit where it's due. She apparently gave a good answer

to the question, more or less, in Iowa on Monday.

Unfortunately there seems to be no transcript or video of the Q&A session, but it appears from reports that she committed to the principle of allowing states to make their own determinations on recreational marijuana legalization.


There was earlier feedback from a fundraiser in Portland where several representatives of the cannabis industry asked her about banking laws and again she offered assurances that she felt the situation needed addressing.

From the oregonian:

Leah Maurer, who worked on the marijuana legalization campaign last year that her husband Travis helped put together, said the Democratic presidential candidate spoke sympathetically about the banking problems faced by legal marijuana businesses. Federal rules now discourage banks from doing business with cannabis firms, hindering their operations and forcing them to keep large sums of cash on hand.

"It was very brief but when she said that there was big applause," said Maurer, adding that "just the fact that she said the word cannabis in a positive light was huge to me."


I'm gonna give the candidates credit when they do the right thing, or try to.

it has not escaped my notice, however, that these exchanges seem to only happen when there are no cameras running.

Yeah, and 10 years ago the beltway waterheads were demanding our party court "values voters"

That's how you get the craptastic litany of shame, on things like the question of marriage equality.

Unfortunately, that conventional wisdom was bad then--- but it is ATROCIOUS, now. Know who our party should be courting?


Who , by and large, have "talks endlessly about jesus" pretty far down their list of priorities for a politician.

"Jesus was a carpenter, you know that? And you know what Jesus said about terrorism? He said you're either with us, or you're with the terrorists. It's right there in the Bible, you can look it up! Facts. Who needs facts? I don't want a President who can win at trivial pursuit, I want a president who can win at Hungry Hungry Hippos. And let me tell you, this Momma Grizzly is HUNGRY. Get my drift? .... wait, what? They froze the thing? Like the blob. Shucks. Even better. Even better."

One small nit to pick with the op- you can't "lose it" if you never had it to begin with.

I dunno, to me it looks like a gym sock filled with dry beans.

but I guess some people think the Moon landing looked fake, too.

Indeed to all you say.

Probably someone, somewhere, actually has a fetish that involves putting the toothpaste back in the tube. And now, thanks to the internet, they can find their community.

But you've given me the opportunity to repost the calendar, which is good, because the old link wasn't working and I need it in my journal to keep handy.. although I really should update it to, say, 2016.
