How's the snow down your way, caro?

Hey Caro!
We already have about 4 inches and it keeps coming down.

Hi Caro. How many black diamond runs have u been doing on a daily basis lately?

You have four inches, maryrose? It all melted here yesterday and now is coming down again but there can't be an inch yet. It's been light on snow this season and last; except for the Monday before last Teddy still hasn't experienced getting really hammered by an Alberta Clipper.

Narc, I did see the pic of darling Yogi. Such an adventure you have in store.

Daddy, the single black diamonds are routine. I do some doubles but they make me pause at times. The season is spectacular. 279" of snowfall this season. 24" in the last 7 days. We are in the midst of a weird warm spell, 42 degrees right now.

MR, I expect to see you out here soon.

Yes indeed, today he was taken to the vet, they found he was in good health, except for an ear infection, which they proscribed drops for.

Senator Chuck Schumer was equally enthusiastic about his own recipe, a wide-ranging cooking project that centers on a meatloaf of beef, veal and pork surrounded by pieces of barbecued chicken.

“It’s so Chuck,” said Frank Bruni, the Times Op-Ed columnist and former restaurant critic. He calls the recipe the Omnibus Loaf.

I'll say this again on the new thread:

Snow, you say? Sun Valley has 140" and will receive another 20" tonight.

Pikers. Up the hill from me, Sugar Bowl has had 510" of snow to date.

GUS

CAPN???? Zippy Von Jugears and Lurch worked out a REAL GOOD DEAL with Iran.
The IRAN fiasco alone should have told America what fuxups Douchebag Hussein and Johnny Kohn Kerry Heinz are. For ANYONE to believe that we got ANYTHING in return is RETARDED. On this issue alone, Obama should be in prison. Getting a sex change at taxpayer expense.

Captain Hate

Has Pelosi Galore stated she can't work with Attorney General Ashcroft yet?

Joan

Oh, Gus :) !!!

"Getting a sex change at taxpayer expense."

Had a good laugh at that remark. I also smiled when I looked at the pictures of Obama skiing with Sir Richard. They looked like they were about to consummate their relationship in one picture. Embarrassed me.

GUS

Capn, I believe Pelosi is getting ready for her "close-up" with Mr DeMille.

PD

Just caught up on the threads to discover Sandy's broadside in the previous thread against those who were bothered by Trump's Nordstroms tweet.

Sandy,

My most abject apologies for daring to have an opinion that differs from yours.

I admit I was surprised to find myself being called a snowflake.

Captain Hate

Serious question: How many of the nimrods who support the Fraud Squaw think that she was reading from a letter that she just got from Coretta Scott King, who of course died in 2006? The reason I ask is that the Restraining Order sent out a weirdly worded email implying that the asthmatic idiot was reading from a letter opposing Sessions as if it was something addressing his current gig. Imagining how dumb you'd have to be to vote for either of those forked tongued pale faces, a number of 50% wouldn't surprise me.

Captain Hate

On Wednesday’s Mark Levin show, Jeff Sessions was confirmed as Attorney General, by a 52-47 vote. Sen Elizabeth Warren was accusing Jeff Sessions of discouraging black voters from voting which is false. Other than abusing the King name to advance a lousy political agenda, what has Warren done for her state or country? The answer is nothing. What has Sens Chuck Schumer, Corey Booker and the Democrat Party done for the black community? The irony is that Sessions has done more than all of them put together. Sessions was involved in prosecuting the head of the KKK in Alabama, got the death penalty for him and desegregated schools in his state. The Democrats don’t speak for all the blacks in this country or minorities, they speak for themselves. Also, the 7 nations that are part of the temporary ban are there for a reason. Either they have governments hostile to us or no government at all. The leftist lawyers and judges can throw around these phrases about the Constitution all the time. However, the Constitution does not apply outside the borders of this country. After that, some Republicans want to put a tax on carbon dioxide and air. Everyone who has completed a 5th grade education knows carbon dioxide is necessary. We would die without greenhouse gases. Rather than getting a bill on slashing taxes, they are working on this. The Republicans and business leaders calling themselves the Climate Leadership Council are responsible. This carbon tax effort, promoted by Hank Paulson and James Baker, aims at pushing President Donald Trump to put a tax on carbon in exchange for abolishing a slew of environmental regulations. A carbon tax has nothing to do with conservatism.

Perhaps Robin or others would have a response.
My 6th grader attends Catholic school. Her English teacher is pretty open about being into "social justice", sigh. And was distraught in class when Hillary lost, sigh.

My question is about an online resource they use, CommonLit.org. It is free for teachers. Teachers can create free accounts for their students. But I don't see a way for a parent to access the readings without being sneaky.
Does CommonLit have a political agenda I should know about?

Imagine a bitch so craven, that she PRETENDS to be an INDIAN, a NATIVE AMERICAN, so as to further her pathetic rancid career????

What a disgusting piece of shit.

Janet ~ an obnoxious Trump supporter

Why didn't Nordstrom come out to protest the Obama administration using the IRS to attack fellow Americans?
Why didn't they issue a statement about how disgusted they were that Hillary Clinton called Americans 'irredeemable' & 'deplorable'?

"It's important that we reiterate our values to all of you and make it clear that we support each of our employees," the department store operators said in a memo to employees. "We will continue to value diversity, inclusion, respect and kindness -- you can count on that."

How about issuing that statement for their employees & customers that voted for Trump!
We are the ones being attacked, vandalized, beaten up & harassed.

Beasts of England

Did anyone else notice this proposition?

'...a tax on carbon in exchange for abolishing a slew of environmental regulations.'

Who is trying define this as an 'exchange', and why do they think they have the leverage for this hypothesized trade-off?

Bill Kristol: 'Lazy' White Working Class Should Be Replaced | The Daily Caller

Weekly Standard editor-at-large Bill Kristol said Tuesday afternoon that the white working class should be replaced by immigrants as they have become “decadent, lazy” and “spoiled.”

“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in?” Kristol told author Charles Murray during an event hosted by the American Enterprise Institute titled “It Came Apart: What’s Next for a Fractured Culture.” Murray recently wrote a book, entitled “Coming Apart,” which focuses on the cultural separation between the wealthiest and most educated white Americans and the poorest and least educated white Americans.

PD

What the FUDGE have you done today to defend the Republic?

What the FUDGE have you done today to show 45 that you've got his back?

I never served in the military, it's true. (Unlike you, whose service I appreciate, with thanks.)

So, let's see...

I get up in the morning and go to work. Well, I work at home. But I hold down a job.

I support my family. Mrs. PD has been enabled to be a full-time stay-at-home Mom and homemaker because early on I was determined she would be free to have this choice.

I attend church on Sunday, prayer meeting on Wednesday. I engage in charitable giving.

I have been a father to my children. I didn't abandon them.

I stayed married to my beloved, Mrs. PD. 34 years last December.

I pay my bills on time.

I pay my taxes.

I vote.

I voted for Trump.

I don't throw rocks at police. Or riot. Or start fires in the street. Or beat up people who support candidates I voted against. Or live in my Mom's basement while protesting against fascism.

So, in answer to your question, I don't do anything dramatic to defend the republic. But I wouldn't say I do nothing.

What the FUDGE have you done today to express support outside of your own safe cocoon that you stand up for this administration, and you detest--and reject--in the STRONGEST TERMS any attack on any woman, not the least of which is the daughter of the President of The United States?

Any attack on any woman? Do you object to the remarks here on JOM about Elizabeth Warren. Or Hillary? Some of which are pretty cutting?

GUS

Bill Kristol should be replaced too. He's never worked a day in his life. He's a clown.

GUS

PD, God bless, I assure you, my own "cutting remarks" on Rodham or Warren, have ZERO to do with their genitalia. Both are RANCID LYING HACKS. To NOT call them out, would be unfair to most NORMAL WOMEN.

PD

ALso it WAS a cave. They tried to say it was based on business, but unfortunnately for them an email from management to the stores criticizing Trump's policies got leaked, so "business decision" as an excuse doesn't fly.

Okay, this I didn't know. So I wouldn't try to defend Nordstroms as possibly making a business decision.

Beasts of England

Very unfortunate - but not surprising - comments from Kristol. If he knew any members of the white working class, then he wouldn't make such an asinine assertion.

Captain Hate

maryrose, it looks like Josh Mandel has been tapped to run against him again. I think he's a good guy but am not sure he has what it takes to beat a clod like Brown. A lot can change before next November and if the country is doing Great Again and Brown is just viewed as an obstructionist hoarse voiced goof, Josh will be in good shape.

If we want peace we have to be prepared for war.

jimmyk

I said a few weeks ago, I hope this site doesn't become a place where even the mildest criticism of Trump is attacked, worse if it's a personal attack. Now I see long-time posters, loyal Trump supporters, called "snowflakes" for expressing the mildest criticism of one little thing Trump did. Suppose I called that kind of response akin to the leftists on campus who shout down anyone who doesn't toe the leftist line? I won't, but it's tempting.

narciso

Long threads bring this out, and this was a record one.

So having forced out Crowley, now the puffington is going after antom

That Puff Host piece is disgusting. Among other tidbits: "Breitbart, a news site known for promoting white supremacist and anti-Semitic views." Seriously? So full of innuendo and guilt by the most tenuous association, just about anyone in America could be called white supremacist and anti-Semitic.

Here is the propectus put out by this bogus "conservative" council pushing for the carbon tax.

https://www.clcouncil.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/TheConservativeCaseforCarbonDividends.pdf

PS: James Baker is a BushI devotee and *hates* Netanyahu. FYI in case you were unaware.

I pray to God that President Trump will not fall for Hank Paulsen's carbon tax scheme. If he does, it will gain him great disfavor among his supporters.

I fear that Canadians would mock Palin relentlessly, and that is not good enough for her.

daddy

This Carbon Tax proposal reminds me of Australia's Carbon Tax. IIRC, the Aussie Left, via Labor Party Prime Minister Julia Gillard, promised not to institute a Carbon Tax, then did so after taking power. That provoked national outrage and was what Tony Abbott successfully ran on repealing: Australia Becomes First Developed Nation to Repeal Carbon Tax

"Today the tax that you voted to get rid of is finally gone, a useless destructive tax which damaged jobs, which hurt families' cost of living and which didn't actually help the environment is finally gone," a jubilant Mr. Abbott told voters in a news conference after the Senate's decision...

...He said the carbon price was acting as a A$9 billion a year handbrake on the economy...

...The carbon tax has affected industries ranging from mining and energy to aviation, and was widely opposed by manufacturers and a majority of business...

If even the Politically Correct Aussies are smart and brave enough to dump this stupid Tax why in the world we would even be considering it beats the heck out of me.

Palin would be respected in the oil rich Canadian west perhaps. Stephen Harper's stomping ground.

Funny coincidence, just earlier today I was wondering if President Trump .would award Palin with a special plum, for her loyal support, and tireless work for the cause.

Around the time of the financial crisis, when Paulsen came up with the government lending plan to save the money markets, there was an article about him is some magazine, can't remember which, which focused on his love of snakes. They are a hobby of his.
