First!

Jack is Back!

Why?

Truthbetold5

Jack

Are you going to tell Frederick the Truth or are you going to go to your maker lying to him too?

Marlene

I plan on watching "Sabrina" this evening at 8 on TCM,starring the delightful Audrey Hepburn. Audrey Hepburn and William Holden began an affair while filming the movie.
Gawd,the movie was made the year I was born.

Threadkiller

My DVR is working hard on the Olympics.

As hard as a Japanese pole vaulter?

Jack is Back!

TBT,

Frederick is off-limits. What kind of an asshole are you anyway? Pediophile, perhaps? Interested in young boys? I'll ask GUS next time he is here. Maybe he even has your address.

lyle

Gotta be better than the awful remake with Harrison Ford and Greg Kinnear and whatsername, Marlene. AH was a true beauty.

Live link for Trump Rally, Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Announced time is 6PM (Eastern) but I would check in early. Sometimes there are interesting speakers before Trump, like Rudy Giuliani.

Jack

You didn't answer the question. And your friends at Bechtel know where to find me. You coming yourself Jack or sending someone?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

I never appreciated how attractive Audrey Hepburn was until just a couple of months ago when Sabrina was on.

Speaking of attractive Kristi Castlin, bronze medalist in the 100m hurdles is marvelously so;

Jack is Back!

TBT,

One more time for your dense cranium. I have been retired since 2003. I know no one at my former company. Stop and go get help even it is the free clinic down the block.

But I do know GUS. Clue, asshole.

Robin, knitting keeps me sane.

Beasts, go easy on the Vol Orange slams - my dad is an alum.

Truthbetold5

GUS who? Asshole!

Robin, knitting keeps me sane.

Today, I picked the last of the blueberries and also picked a pint of gooseberries for good measure. What shall I do with them? Well, I was thinking this -

It's all in good fun, Robin. After all, we have two of their former head coaches as our AD and OC. :)

Robin, knitting keeps me sane.

Being a Vol brought him into my mom's orbit. She is a good little mountain girl from the Smokies. My dad is a Yankee, which my grandparents never quite forgave,

Jack is Back!

sbw,

doesn't work on safari. I just got sucked into his dementia. from now on SOB. he is most deserving.

Hubby and doggy just got in from a walk. My intrepid little terrier sniffed out some bear scat,which hubby said was full of berries. I noticed some raspberries along the road today, which I planned on picking tomorrow,but I won't be competing with the bear(s)!

Robin,I love the Smokies! My Dad grew up in the White Mountains of NH and I know being close to the mountains of east TN gave him comfort.

Truthbetold5

It's a bitch when you can't tell your own family the truth isn't it ,Jack

Miss Marple 2

Trump on now talking about veterans and the problem with the VA.

Truthbetold5

Only Trump and Trump alone can fix the VA

Miss Marple 2

Ten point plan for VA on his web site.

Now talks about depleted military and says that will be reversed under a Trump Administration.

Invokes Reagan's "peace through strength".

Robin, knitting keeps me sane.

This is a great editorial from John Kass in the Chicago Tribune.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/kass/ct-urban-unrest-kass-0821-20160819-column.html

Robin, knitting keeps me sane.

Marlene, we are lucky enough to have family to visit in two of my favorite places - the Smoky Mountains of E. TN and the White Mtns in NH. My husband just did the amount Washington Century Ride a couple of weeks ago. Such beautiful country.

Beasts of England

lol, Robin! My maternal grandmother was not at all pleased that her daughter married a Pennsylvania Yankee. Who was also half Italian. And a Catholic!! ;)

Miss Marple 2

This is a a speech with many subjects. Right now he's on the damage unnecessary environmental regulations do.

Miss Marple 2

Wow. Going after the EPA, big time.

Talks about that navigable waterways thing which allows feds to regulate puddles.

Business tax will be cut to 15%, including farms.

Clean coal. Ramp up production.

Beasts of England

That's a yuge economic and political issue, Miss Marple - and one that he's on separate ends of the spectrum from Cankles. That alone should be enough for the NeverTrumpers, but...

daddy

Hubby and doggy just got in from a walk. My intrepid little terrier sniffed out some bear scat,which hubby said was full of berries.

Marlene,

Momma and Scout are angry at Fry. On their walk yesterday Scout, the girl, flushed a grouse hen and caught it in her mouth. Fry ran up and stole it from her, biting it's tail, then as it pecked at him between the eyes and drew blood he killed it. Momma has iPhone video of her telling Fry to put that dirty bird down and Fry won't. Wish I could post it, but yellow lab Fry the Murderer is shaking it in his mouth and elated by his kill, and is playing a game of "Keep Away" and won't let momma or Scout anywhere near it, so Scout is mournful and Fry is exultant!

When she finally got Fry leashed and got him to drop the bird, she said she had to keep him leashed the entire rest of the walk as she knew the instant she took let him go he'd go racing back to the kill:)

Murder most fowl.

Miss Marple 2

Now Trump is going after McAuliffe and his scheme to pardon felons so they can vote.

cheerleader

MM,

I'm still getting used to the teleprompter. It's good but the jokes and humor element seems missing now. All business.

Truthbetold5

If Trump promised to turn water to wine would you believe him?

cheerleader

And getting rid of the death tax.

cheerleader

Glad to see two of the SS guys who've been with him since day one.

Marlene

daddy,our Scout has been squishing hoppy toads in his mouth,which is gross. Maine frogs /toads aren't toxic,so he hasn't had any reactions. He spits them out after realizing they aren't tasty.

Miss Marple 2

cheerleader,

It's important to transition from entertainment to statesmanship.

Reagan had to do the same thing.

You won't see him off the teleprompter until after the election. He's in this to win it, and has decided this is the way to go. Press no longer gets to carve out soundbites. All speeches have text copies posted, too.

Glenn beck predicted the exact opposite after the Breitbart hires, MM.

Bullshit.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

From a link at TK's link;
The 3 most destructive words in the English language:
"Be a Man".

I guess that means "Be a pussy" are the three most constructive ones.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

The really troubling thing in that story is the phrase “We only tip citizens” led to;

The restaurant has since responded by scouring the surveillance video to determine who wrote the hateful note. The woman who allegedly signed the note met with police on Thursday, John said, claiming she signed the receipt but didn’t write the comment.

Surveillance video?
The cops?

I'd tell him everything will make more sense when he becomes a man, but he's 45 and still has dillusions of creating his poopy pants empire (drug mules wholesale to stash club, which he 'owns' from cleaning toilets - hint) and he just pooped all over the entrance, again.

Miss Marple

TK,

This afternoon was driving and local radio was interviewing some columnist or reporter.

Very patronizing. Said Trumps campaign is nostalgia for an America that will never return.manufacturing is gone and we need to embrace the service economy blah blah.

Then he went off on Breitbart as a white nationalist site.

Host is morning drive time guy who fancies himself an expert and was just not doing pushback at all. Very frustrating.

Gentlejim

I know my response if I were given that call for service Iggy.
"Are you f'in crazy? Clear the call. I'm not going."

Trafikrelatedokurences

BTW prefer 'woos' over willows 💁PP2💃

cheerleader

That radio person was a twit, because even service jobs are filled offshore. I guess he believes progress has to be regress.

daddy

Big Olympic News here on the Sunday Morning Talk Show in Australia is that 9 Aussie Athletes forged some documents to get in to some Basketball Game, and as a result their Passports were confiscated by the Brazilian cops and each of the 9 was fined $4000. A group of Australian Olympic athletes have been fined by Brazilian police after they tried to get into a venue they were not accredited for.

Nice to see somebody else get in trouble besides American Swimmers.

Miss Marple

No one ever discusses how a lack of manufacturing capacity is a national security risk.

I don't like this service economy, anyway. It's low pay for most people and seems to me to be rather servile it its nature.


Plus I hate snooty reporters.

Oh, that twit on the radio is just repeating something he read in Business Week a dozen years or so ago. Just idiotic.

These people act like the "globalism" we have today is some sort of "force of nature"--comically, a result of "market forces".

It is not. it is solely driven by elites, part of which want cheap labour and to normalize the cost of it across the globe, and part of it that wants to destroy the West. This sort of globalism--moving whole industries off shore, is completely new to history and completely artificial. It in fact cannot work, and the elites that have cause it have not really thought it out at all. They are narrow minded, greedy and power mad fools. They have no iea what make up a nation, a society or a civilization. These things are not counting houses, or custom houses, or labor pools. People cannot be manipulated like they are rows in spreadsheets, not in the Modern world. It will all fall apart. They think they understand this and can control it, but they are utter fools--as foolish as Al Gore running around with his pot belly ranting about climate change. Obama, Hillary and the puppet master Soros show just how shallow and stupid these people are. They can only lie cheat and steel for so long.

It can all be undone in a matter of years. Perhaps Trump can start us down that path, but sooner or later someone will, and it might not be so pleasant then. It is absurd what has gone on these last 25 - 30 years. It is completely unsustainable. It is treason.

I'm watching the woman hi jump competition with no breaks for human interest stories. They are almost all cute, and have tall willowy bodies like small chested super models you see on Fashion TV don't the cat-walk. It is great to see their marvelous athletic skills.

Hindraker featured on Drudge:

..." In my opinion, Donald Trump is becoming a formidable candidate. On the key issues that he talks about the most, he takes positions that are, I think, both right and popular, with one exception–trade. He has given a series of excellent speeches, more or less as they were written, thereby demonstrating a discipline that was sorely lacking earlier in the campaign. No one should underestimate his populist appeal, including his appeal to minority voters. "

cheerleader

He's correct on trade too.

cheerleader

And the "undisciplined" meme is bs. You don't campaign the way he does, and win the primary a largely as he did, by being "undisciplined".

Still, it's good to hear that the man finally being a bit appreciated.

Cheerleader,

Yes, but he won't admit it. Free trade is like some sort of Holy Grail.

I don't get it, because it's just s series of treaties. It's not like it will produce a cure for cancer or something.

squaredance

"Free Trade" is as much a neurotic displacement association for so called "conservatives" as is "Equality" for Liberals.

Of course, it is not "Free Trade" at all, but an attempt to "rationalize" a global "value chain by distributing parts of it world wide.

But we cannot have that and be a nation. It has to stop. It is really becoming a security issues. We scarcely make computers any more, for example.

Can you imagine where we would be in we had not gone down this path?

It all makes perfect sense now, Thanks

in college I remember critiques of van wolferen, and fallows, not least of which were because the latter had missed the property bubble, that MITI had occasioned, however, seeing as we've had a property bubble of our own, that comandante krugman, actually argued for,

soon after nafta was adopted there was a massive devaluation of the peso, which led to the first of the 'too big to fail' bailouts, that bob rubin and carlos slims made a killing on,

turbo timmy was one of his proteges, and he seemed to take that lesson to heart, with the asian bailout after soros tanked the whole basket of currencies, starting with the baht and the renimbhi, I remember that last part because I was taking a graduate course in economics at that time,

buccaneer morgan

so then we move on to the deal to admit China into the WTO, I think the PLA ruling elite, took the robber baron formula, with a touch of gangsterism, as their model, because that was the only version of capitalism they knew from their marxist indoctrination, needless to say labor and environmental standards are not prized in this formulation.
