Piers Morgan brutally mocked the Times in the Daily Mail today. Best line:

‘Our goal in politics is the same as our goal in art, and that’s to get to the truth,’ he solemnly declared."

As he opened the envelope and announced the wrong winner......

'Here's an idea for a salad Trump would never enjoy...'

I fear that clause was actually published in one of their cooking stories.

Thanks, TM and JOM twitterers!

We had a small pre-Lenten involuntary fast going for awhile there.

Elon Musk announced a manned lunar fly-by commercial mission to launch in 2018. Claims to have two passenger deposits.

No, go ahead! You first - I insist.

Yes he should pace himself have two launches in a row that don't explode, I know baby steps.

News from the local online news site -

"Arlington-Based Org Gets Big Grant — The Crystal City-based U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants is getting a $4.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The grant, announced by U.S. senators Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.), is earmarked for “organizations working to provide unaccompanied minors who fled violence in Central America with services including temporary shelters and foster care programs.” [Sen. Tim Kaine]

http://www.kaine.senate.gov/press-releases/warner-and-kaine-announce-nearly-84-million-for-organizations-in-arlington-bristow_staunton-assisting-immigrant-children-in-need

Perhaps American citizens in Chicago & Detroit & other failing cities would be interested in this news?

Chicago's mayor wears a Mexico flag pin.
The federal government is spending tax dollars for citizens of other countries....

Well you need the right hat, as with lion taming.

Janet ~ an obnoxious Trump supporter 🚬

"unaccompanied minors" is a loaded term that needs to be picked apart.

Some adult brought those kids to America. Either a coyote or a family member/friend brought them. THat is assuming they are KIDS.

If a coyote brought them, then the coyote's were paid. No smuggling group is doing it out of the goodness of their hearts.
Who paid?
Send the kids back to their families.
IF the parents are illegally in America already...then it is THEY that have chosen to leave their kids. The whole family should be sent back to their home country.

I'm obliged to follow up this story, but there isn't anything more to it.

Truth doesn’t matter to the NY Times

Minimum wage hikes will,permanently kill low end jobs. Once installed, the kiosks aren't coming back out.

http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/left-pushes-15-minimum-wage-wendys-installs-self-service-kiosks-1000-locations

The Dublin-based burger giant started offering kiosks last year, and demand for the technology has been high from both customers and franchise owners.

"There is a huge amount of pull from (franchisees) in order to get them," David Trimm, Wendy's chief information officer, said last week during the company's investors' day.

"With the demand we are seeing ... we can absolutely see our way to having 1,000 or more restaurants live with kiosks by the end of the year."

Trimm said the kiosks accomplish two purposes: They give younger customers an ordering experience that they prefer, and they reduce labor costs.

Good evening, all.

Since JOM wasn't available, I spent my time watching videos of election night. Very satisfying!

Glad to see we are back, and thanks to Tom McGuire for fixing whatever was wrong!

Wendy’s chairman probably didn’t meet with Trump at the WH.

Wendy’s:

Strike 1: HQ in Dublin
Strike 2: Not bringing jobs to America
Strike 3: Doesn’t burn beef before serving with catsup or ketchup.

Captain Hate

So TM wasn't pulling a passive aggressive Outhouse move of shutting down the comments?

Tammy Bruce was all over JimNorCal's 10:21, saying that fast food work is entry level fare for teenagers and that anybody thinking they should be able to support a family on such work has been badly misled by people who don't have their best interests in mind.

Speaking of Tammy:

Damn.... I had just posted a doohah/peepee/hoohah story on the other thread when it disappeared into the ether. OH well.

They opened a Culver's about 3 miles from my house, so we went tonight.... YUM! Thanks for the heads up, MM. Workers were "almost" as awesome as chick-fil-a. Very polite and running condiments, drink refills and trash from the tables... never see that in a MickieDs or Wendy's. But come on... we're in the ATL and they are serving PEPSI products?

That story makes me think of Goldfinger's plan, narciso.

Blow up whatever artifacts you weren't able to steal and raise the value of your loot.

Friend of mine who lives in Grayson (that's for the GA contingent) just posted on FB that his house was broken into tonight while he was out and they got all of his guitars and guns - including a very expensive Martin? guitar. Dayum. 10 years ago no one around here even bothered to lock their doors.

Frau  Mariahilferstrasse

Porch - I think it was you mentioned the Third Man last night. It was one of my favorites evah and still great to watch. I had a 45 record of the theme which I wore out much to the relief of my family.
Here is the master himself. The music in the film was certainly integral to the story.

On the flip side was "Das alte Lied" which still rips my heart out.

Yes it is, is Joseph cotton supposed to be Graham Greene, I saw it a couple of times when I had tcm.

That was beautiful, Frau.

narciso

By cintradt I think citizen kane is overrated, Welles created a portrait of hearts in his own vainglorious image, largely based on scurrilous rumors from w a swanberg.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Cotton's character was a writer of pulp westerns in the flick and he seemed hopelessly naive, which doesn't sound like GG.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Concur on Citizen Kane, narc.

And I have to confess, for me, the score in The Third Man skates perilously close to grating at times.

narciso

True, but graham wouldn't make lime as his eyes, maybe its sgt payne (Bernard lee, the future m) or Trevor howard's character

narciso

It does a little, I havrnt seen it in a while, Welles identified with the tyro hearts, his love of artifice, note the war of the world stunt, and it was a cautionary tale as well.

narciso

Anyways I thought the confluence of ancient history and modern times, was interesting, Israel was always in a tough neighborhood.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Don't get me wrong TTM is a great movie; Welles' best, IMO.

narciso

I think so too, possibly one of the best users if the medium, the novella bow diesnt feature matins as the narrator, but major calloway (I think that's Trevor howards character.

David, Infamous Deplorable

Lyle,

I got one, too, and I can't seem to get the damned thing to work right. Everyone is raving about them, but my knives are still dull. Given that the the way they work is that you pull the blade through one way, I think even I am smart enough to use them, but no joy.

Jon Huntsman is Chairman of the Atlantic Council;

The Atlantic Council has, since its inception, been a nonpartisan institution, with members "from the moderate internationalist wings of both parties."
 Despite its connections, the Council is by charter independent of the US government and NATO, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
 In March 2016, the organization met to discuss strategies for dealing with the populist movement in Europe, which they believe is threatening the globalist agenda on the continent.

Please, please be fake news that Trump is considering that carbuncle for anything.

narciso

The chairman emeritus is scowcroft, his lead protege was bagel, among its funders were some of the same moneybags behind the Clinton FDn the late gene Simmons looking juffali brother, a scion of the olayan clan, the fabulous alamoudi brothers,

But before bagel they were a charity case of the cia's counter terror center, and its junior fellow Richard Clarke,

Run, run, run.

Wasn't Huntsman Obama's ambassador to China for awhile?

Went to bed at 8:05 after checking for the ninth or tenth time to see if comments were opened yet. I couldn't remember what I used to do at night...
Fortunately, my addiction hasn't reached the physical stage yet, is just psychological, so no seizures, sweating or insomnia.

Who here has TM's email or cell, in case that ever happens again?

See what I did there!?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Hi, Gus! I just thought that was funny about Friedman.

What they are worried about is that people LIKE Trump (except for the moonbats) once they get enough exposure.

There was a funny thread on Reddit yesterday about how people go into his office for a meeting and come out all happy and positive, like he's got some magical transformation machine. (I attribute this to his listening skills and the fact that he was really influenced by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale.)

It really is true. You need go no further than Terry McAuliffe giving that toast to him at the Governor's dinner.
