1st!!!!

Theo

Almost first!

JM Hanes

Seems to me this one's been over-hyped. It's not that flossing has been tested and found wanting. It's that flossing has not actually been tested as required before the government makes a recommendation. That's why the rec. was withdrawn.

lyle

I rarely floss and I see the dentist only once a year for a cleaning. Haven't had a filling in over twenty years. Wife flosses daily, sees the dentist twice a year and gets fillings about every other year.

JM Hanes

I guess it's pretty obvious that I'm just avoiding chores today.

Buckeye

Flossing is over-rated, and I have the Periodontist's bills to prove it.

Theo

lyle --

Pretty much the same with me.

I do not want to go tin foil hat here, but isn't in your dentist's interest to make sure that you have teeth problems?

lyle

https://pjmedia.com/video/is-hillarys-laugh-infectious-obama-says-so/

But does she floss?

cheerleader

Are those her own teeth or has she had work done?

Buckeye

But does she floss?

That is Huma's job.

Theo

JMH --

Don't think of it as avoiding chores. Think of it as sharing your wisdom with the world via JOM. In other words, you are helping humanity and that is more important than laundry.

lyle

You know I set that up for you, Buckeye. ;)

Buckeye

In other words, you are helping humanity and that is more important than laundry.

Unless hubby is out of underwear:)

lyle

Her laugh is so infectious it should be quarantined.

JM Hanes

I wouldn't give up that floss just yet though. It does more to eliminate the sources of bad breath than spritzing with mouth spray ever will.

Buckeye

Roger that lyle:)

Ben

Buckeye; Are you with the gear in the rear of the Old Guard, or are you with Trump? It's just not clear dood.

JM Hanes

I took care of the hubby problem 15 years ago.

buccaneer morgan

so prostate and breast cancer screening are unhelping now flossing in unplusgood, when do we get to the leaches, and the humours,

Buckeye

Ben, you can't show up once in a blue moon and expect to be catered to.

Doesn't work that way, dood.

lyle

I took care of the hubby problem 15 years ago.

I don't know why but this made me laugh for some reason.

Buckeye

"I don't know why but this made me laugh for some reason."

Me too!

Hope you didn't use those matched 16 gauge grouse guns JMH:)

lyle

I said I rarely floss but that doesn't mean never. I keep it on hand all the time for post prandial teeth clean up if needed. Think babyback ribs...

Buckeye

Be a damned good reason to give them to your son-in-law!

Trump’s Economic Stimulus Plan: Spend Massive Amounts Of Money On Shovel Ready Jobs.

WAIT. Did Donald Trump Just Steal An Idea From A Democrat Congressman? (VIDEO)
http://www.redstate.com/streiff/2016/08/02/wait.-donald-trump-just-steal-idea-democrat-congressman-video/

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

There are many, many factors in tooth and gum health; surface porosity, depth of fissures, mouth and diet ph, tooth spacing, genetics, mouth fauna, thickness of enamel and many more; hence lyle's example.

In my particular case nobody ever taught me about flossing, or at least not so that I ever actually listened. My teeth were cavity free on the conventional surfaces for years until I broke a tooth and found out that my lack of flossing had allowed cavities to grow between most of my molars while my brushing had kept the surfaces it could get to cavity free.
When I asked Mrs Iggy 'if you could only do one which was more important, brushing or flossing' she hemmed and hawed and finally said flossing, under the logic that for adults the biggest problem is gum health which is exacerbated most by deposits between the teeth that propagate static bacteria dumps and gum recession.

JM Hanes

Naw. He had mo' bigger guns, so we lawyered up and did it the hard way.

Neo

I'm confused.

The part I really, and I do mean really, couldn't understand (even if I twisted my brain) was the call in the BLM "demands" for "reproductive justice".

Normally, the average Lefty would imply that "reproductive justice" was free abortion, but given that most abortions are already performed on Black women, I'm puzzled exactly what really is "reproductive justice" (from a BLM point of view) ?

Fewer Black abortions or more Black abortions ?

Buckeye

Been thinking about Hillary implying Donald is too unstable to have access to the Nuclear football.

Years ago I was a jury member on a trial over some drug dealers shooting each other up.

One of the witnesses was being ask why she didn't "push back" over some dispute with one of the vermin.

"Are you shittin' me!!!. Those dudes are from the "bottoms" (a particularly nasty inner city neighborhood in Columbus). Those motherfuckers are plum crazy!!!"

I rather think that the Chinese, Russians and Norks might think the same way about Trump.

That's a good thing in my book:)

Captain Hate on the iPhone

I've always had hard teeth so except for one that got stupidly chipped and eventually had to get capped, I've been fortunate. My ice eating habit caused another cap. My dentists have urged flossing which I do in a desultory manner but the Phillips Sonicare used three times a day probably helps more than any non genetic factor.

buccaneer morgan

seriously have they lost their fricking minds, that is the mogatu question?

henry

I really wonder about some people. Mark Belling now concludes Nehlen is a Soros backed fake republican. His evidence is the pro Nehlen ad buys from some group in Arlington, VA. (Janet & James, he must think you guys are Soros). Or maybe he's joking and trashing Nehlen as a toga cleaner given he backed off #NeverTrump to #SomebodyCleanTrumpsTogaAndMakeRoomOnTheFeintingCouchWhileYouAreAtIt.

I can only conclude that Ryan's internal polls do not look good -- so panic time for the "in crowd" here.

Jack is Back!

Not just the dental floss industry will be affected but also the people who charge from $5,000 to $2,600 a copy for global and geographic specific market reports for same.

I expect to see at least a .00000005% increase in unemployment next quarter but at least this time its expected.

Buckeye

I have one implant and 7 crowns.

The implant was a challenge and "only" cost me $7K.

My Periodontist lives a few block over, has a really nice new 911.

I don't think they are, of course any grass roots campaign has be subrosa, like brat's campaign in va, like the wolverines in red dawn, popping up in the cornfield,

Texas Liberty Gal

I'm praying Nehlen beats Ryan!!!!

Lurker Susie

The Ryan agenda, wow he has a high opinion of himself.

What 17 people running for president before the Iowa caucus,” Ryan said. “We had no idea who our nominee was going to be, and the goal was to then draft with that nominee, and then bring [the Ryan agenda] to the country.”

Ryan paused.

“We have a different kind of nominee now,” he said, as the room filled with
laughter.

He's unique.

 Skeptical Voter

I dunno about flossing--my wife does, and I don't, except after eating corn on the cob.

But if you want another health tip, some Hollywood actress was recently promoting the health benefits of vaginal steaming. I dunno about that either. Accidental "overdoses" of that might lead to Billy Jeff Clinton telling the victim, "You might want to put some ice on that."

Marlene

Good afternoon! I think I've mentioned this,but in a former career,our dentist was a funeral director. :)


The Portland paper's editorial today says that Trump should be disavowed and repudiated.
That isn't a very friendly welcome for his visit to Portland on Thursday. The point of the editorial is to pressure Collins and Poliquin,who have not endorsed him.

henry

Trump won't support Ryan or McCain in their primaries.

OK. We'll see if it matters (or if Trump has inside polling info).

Stephanie

These work better than flossing for removal of stuff after eating... flossing is better for deep removal of stuff under the gums and then it isn't much good unless you dig down deep and bleed.

cathyf

Wait a minute, I'm confused. JMH offed a spouse with gingivitis? Or lack of clean undies?

lyle

I'm a Philips Sonicare guy myself too, Capt. I think them ee-lectric units really help cut down on plaque buildup. My dental tech agrees when I see her once a year; probably partly because they make you brush for two whole minutes.

boris

Whatever Trump's flaws he is a regular citizen and talks like one.

If that makes him "unfit" to be president something the founders intended has been lost.

lyle

LOL, cathyf!

boris

"spouse with gingivitis?"

Let's just say the bad breath problem has been solved.

Captain Hate

Oh c'mon, boris, you mean the founders didn't want career pols and dynasties? Now that's just crazy talk..

TLG, Tammy Bruce talked about it today and it might be part of her weekly Washington Times column tomorrow.

Miss Marple 2

Well, I had to turn off The Five. Perino is upset Trump called Hillary "the devil" as is Juan. Brian wants more talk about the lackluster economy.

Eric Bolling points out Trump is sticking with what has worked for him. Bunch of arguing ensued, with Kimberly Guilfoyle being quiet which tells me she agreed with Perino but didn't want to go against her because Dana has the GOPe wing behind her.

Then Dana was also upset because Trump said he wouldn't support either McCain or Ryan in the primaries (I hadn't heard that and wondered what he had said so picked it up above in this thread).

Not one word was uttered about how Ryan had been talking behind his back and McCain was being his usual obnoxious self.

Thought I would report. I need to run to the store and will be back after while.

They are sure making it easy for me to cut off cable this month!

Miss Marple 2

Correction: Guilfoyle DISAGREED with perino but stayed silent.

Thx MM for watching The Five - I had recorded it but now can delete it.

CH - good for Tammy Bruce - Fox needs to report it too.

Thomas Collins

I'm fascinated by TM's threadstarter and the comments on this thread. Flossing with strips of clean undies after offing one's spouse is better for tooth health than flossing with regular dental floss? Who knew?

Theo

You can learn a lot here TC.

buccaneer morgan

ah snorfle, I don't think either item had anything to do with it,

Can we move on to something else? I've probably spent a total of at least 3 month in a dental chair during my life. Its a very sore subject for me in more ways then one!!!

Frau Rutger Gefahrfeld

I'm ahead of you, Miss Marple. I never turned on The Five.

For you youngsters, I remember hearing how embarrassing Truman was: his appearance, voice and vocabulary. It was rumored his hands were small which he had to hide in gloves.

On the topic of mouths, did anyone ever find out what Hillary had hidden on/in her tongue?

Frau Rutger Gefahrfeld

Maybe one of the boat babes could order these.

Worth reposting from the precious thread:

Paul --

Prior to serving on OFA's Advisory Board, I served as President Obama's "body man" at the White House. My job was to anticipate and sort out the matters that could potentially distract the President from the tough, big-picture decisions that require his focus every day.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

This Hill article has the full transcript of Trump's "egregious" statements.
Someone please point to me where anything he said is noxious? Theo? Appalled?
If a guy with no money works hard for his family we call that a sacrifice. If a guy who could have sat back on his inheritance and played instead works his butt off for decades it isn't?
He never said or even implied it was a sacrifice comparable to the Khan kid's.
In retrospect a better answer would have been "what the hell has Hillary ever sacrificed other than bimbos on Bill's altar and our soldiers and ambassadors on fool's errands?" but that's the "jerk store" perspective.

What he said about his wife was perfectly reasonable. Shouldn't we assume that a guy who claims to be a muslim generally follows muslim edicts regarding women?

This is a phony, manufactured incident that the stupid Reps fall for every time. Charlie Brown could take their correspondence course.

Beasts of England

lol, Frau!!

And, cheerleader, it's probably not as bad as I made it sound. I'm a real lightweight when it comes to blood and injury. :)

Trump's right. The system is rigged. From the MFM to the Polls to the orgs like League of Women Voters to the Debate Commissions to Hollywood to foreign interests and media outlets to NGO's. The Globalist coalition wants more not less.

When the Koch's team with Soros then you know you have a problem.

..Backico???... What the hell is that?....

lyle

I don't know, JiB. All the neverTrumpers are portraying that "rigged" statement as him already conceding his loss in November.

buccaneer morgan

well that's not new, they hear thunder, and think of sleet,

Theo

Ignatz @ 6:05

I am not sure what you want me to do here. I did not see the transcript, but I would think that what Trump did was not so much "noxious" as stupid -- stupid in giving a chance for the MSM to cartoon him.

Of course the first problem is that Khan became some beloved standup guy and Patricia Smith was a dupe being used by cynical evil people (Note to Jack -- this is sarcasm). But complaining about the false standards of the MSM is not going to get anywhere.

IMO, he should not have debated with this guy, just let it go. Or said something like I am sorry for all the families who lost loved ones in defense of this country and maybe mention that this happened in a war that Hillary voted for and that he opposed. And just let it go!

I do not know his actual words about his "sacrifices." I am sure that they were defensible in some sense. But from a public relations point of view he allowed the media to portray it as though his getting richer was as big a sacrifice to this country as Captain Khan giving his life in Iraq. Again, on some level, maybe you can say that makes sense but to your average voter it sounds insensitive and selfish.

So I appreciate the invitation Ig, but I cannot find what Trump said to be noxious when carefully parsed. But it does seem like political malpractice to have stepped into the issue so that it could be used by a malevolent media this way and really dumb to keep stepping in it over and over.

Beasts of England

In effort to tie this all together: there is a certain type of unmentionable that's called 'butt floss'. :)

California Dem Representative Judy Chu must have taken Hirrary's cattle futures correspondence course as the former psychology professor with a couple of small pensions saw her net worth rocket from ~$0 in 2008 to ~$3.5 million in 2014.
She day trades. A lot. Something fishy this way comes.

new lurker

MM, I agree with you re Dana Perino--I call her Goody Two Shoes much to my husband's chagrin. She is SO in the tank with the GOPe and JEB! that it sickens me. I have gotten to the point that I cannot stand to watch ANY of the news. Even Fox News and Bret Baier have turned! It is all sad and exasperates me!

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--I am not sure what you want me to do here. I did not see the transcript...--

One of two things;
1. Ask TM to delete the rest of your comment which discussed what was stupid about something you had no knowledge of, or;
2. Go read it so you can comment intelligently.

What I don't want you to do is waste pixels by waxing eloquent about how stupid something Trump said was that you have not spent the time even reading even after I provide you a link to it.

Those seem like pretty reasonable proposals.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

crap

buccaneer morgan

why screaming in a loud voice 'the end is near' is much more satisfying.

Miss Marple 2

Left the TV on and came back to hear Baier acting puzzled about why Trump does what he does, usual crap that is because they do not think outside their tiny Beltway box.

(Redacted cuss words here.)

So, I turned TV off, unloaded groceries, ordered a pizza because it is too hot to cook, and am settled in to watch the next Trump or Pence rally, which will cheer me up.
