I loathe CNN. I want every employee there eating out of MM's garbage cans.
I'm so trying to ketchup (not Russian dressing) with events, not knowing who MM is is not a big deal for me. But I figure it's not Marilyn Monroe or Michael Moore or Mickey Mouse. Miss Marple maybe?

Laura Ingraham called Schoooooomer an "absolute fraud" on Gorsuch.
And she's so right, Schumer's stance is untenable and besides the point; as McConnell says (and, this time, I see no reason to disbelieve him), Gorsuch will be confirmed Friday regardless of Dem behavior.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Yes, I am MM who said " I hope to see them all eating out of trash cans."

I can't bring myself to use James D's "DIAF" so that's my alternative.

(I am the type of person who carries spiders outside in a paper cup. LOL!)

MM, couldn't agree more; the apoplectic hysteria of the lib media will surely bite them in the butts (they forgot that you're never supposed to go Full Retard). Trump has shown us again his talent for causing his opponents to make fools of themselves - he's only been doing it since the first GOP primary, you'd think they'd learn.

Rocco,Dave,TC... I just posted a neat story about the Lombardi Trophy and a young Maine State trooper at the end of the dead thread.

Just catching up, but have a couple of comments.

Re: air quality, we live in Southern California - the LA basin - and the air quality here is tremendously improved over what it was in the 1970's. The worst air used to be in the fall. Now, we enjoy beautiful fall weather - crisp and best of all - clean.

WRT Robert Redford, while I disagree with his Hollywood left politics, I liked his performances in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and again with Paul Newman in The Sting.

The Lombardi Trophy story is a good one! Thanks for sharing that Marlene.

My dad taught me to use oil-based paint for trim or anything (like MM's cabinets) that gets a lot of wear and tear.

Clarice - another wonderful Pieces and so helpful. When friends are perplexed about the twists and turns - I can just send them a link to your writing. I particularly loved the "dog in a manager" tribute to McLame.

What we heard was that people didn’t want any more diversity. They didn’t want female characters out there. That’s what we heard, whether we believe that or not. I don’t know that that’s really true, but that’s what we saw in sales. We saw the sales of any character that was diverse, any character that was new, our female characters, anything that was not a core Marvel character, people were turning their nose up against.

Last graph from RSE's 01:25:

I have no doubt the Russians tried to influence our election process this past year and every year before that. I have no doubt that we have done the same in other countries. It's a legitimate news story, but not a shocking big hold-the-press news story. That the Obama Gang was using intelligence on Republicans to try to thwart a Trump administration from erasing Obama's legacy — that's a huge story, a scandal almost as big as the fact that Obama used the IRS to decimate the Tea Party movement. If there were even a single honest editor at the network news departments or CNN or the New York Times, this would end with some high-level Obama and Hillary cronies doing perp walks. If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

That right there's the problem.

Your comment is right on the money, hrtshpdbox. President Trump continues to amaze me.

He says he's not a politician and that's to the good. He's a master at manipulating events and the so-called narrative. Observed in retrospect, he always seems to be to or the steps ahead of the media, the Democrats, the RINOs and just about everyone else on the planet. They try a Sealy maneuver, and he sets the timing with a ready hand then blasts them with an TOG or something else equally lethal.

He really is interesting to watch. Even if the media and his political opponents catch on, they don't seem to know what to do about it. He reminds me of a statement that President Lincoln made when he was being encouraged to relieve General Grant, "I like this

Lerner and Koskinen only managed to bottle up more frustration and anger among the Tea Party supporters by thwarting their ability to communicate and advance.

And then along came someone who heard our voices...

From Rocco's link, Comey's #2 stinks to high heaven. We could have a Senate full of Grassleys but if the FBI Director refuses to answer their questions and provide evidence he's telling Congress the truth, what can they do? Comey has already said he intends to finish his term which lasts to 2023, and getting 2/3 of the Senate to vote to impeach him isn't remotely possible.

2 days ago I placed a notice that my oldest granddaughter's husband had died unexpectedly and they were collecting donations to help her meet some of the costs of this tragic event. One of the things that was not mentioned was that this was a new marriage in Feb after a previous divorce. So a completely unexpected event.

Last night my daughter posted that my oldest granddaughter told her mother:
Amanda's oldest daughter (3 years old) told her the other night, "I know your heart is broken so you can have mine Mommy".

You can read the whole comment #1 at the LUN.

I know a least one dear JOM friend helped them in their need and our whole family appreciates every thing that every one has done for them.

One thing I wanted to point out is that unexpected death comes often in this world. I would suggest that it is never too early to prepare financially for an event that is 100 % certain.

Thanks again all our JOM friends who noted Kyle's death and my granddaughter's loss.

Marvel Comics boss: "What we heard was that people didn’t want any more diversity. They didn’t want female characters out there. "

I suppose that's why there's not a new movie coming out with Scarlett Johnson playing a superhero, like in:
Iron Man-2 (2010)

or

The Avengers (2012)

or

Captain America : The Winter Soldier (2014)

or

Lucy: (2014)

or

The Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

or

Captain America: Civil War: (2016)

or

Ghost In The Shell (2017)

Yep. Nobody wants "female characters or diversity out there."
Bummer. maybe if Scarlett started dating a Yankee she might get a movie script or 2. As for diversity, here's a great idea---How about a movie with Morgan Freeman playing God! Have you guys thought of that?

I got lazy and didn't bother to read about this when it was posted. Now my (former) Rep claims:
"On 3/28, Republicans betrayed the American people on an issue we care the most about: privacy. Once the President signs this resolution, broadband providers like AT&T, Comcast and others will be able to sell your personal information to the highest bidder without your permission. Their message to the American people is clear: your privacy doesn’t matter and your web browsing history should be available to anyone who will pay the highest price for it."

What's a more fair and balanced viewpoint?

Jim, regulation returned to FTC from FCC. This means Google is no longer privileged versus Comcast. It was a reversal of an Obama giveaway to Google/Facebook et al. Plenty of privacy regulations in place anyway, although the government ignores them for its own spying on us.

boris

When you let them define privacy it turns out catching one of them doing something wrong is "invasion of their privacy".

When they catch any conservative doing something they can pretend is or should be considered bad the narrative is "We caught you and we can prove you did it!" regardless of privacy.

The FTC/FCC thing was discussed on Tucker the other night, I believe. There was a woman named Nuala something or other who was up in arms about it, but the other guy was fairly convincing that this was much ado about nothing. But of course since it's Trump it will be described as the second coming of Mussolini.

In fact I recall now that Nuala was hyperventilating about how your ISP knows everything about you including what brand of underwear you have on, and this would allow them to make use of all that information, and no one has any choice about who their ISP is. But the other guy said, first, that's been true for a while, so there's nothing new, and second, you have privacy agreements with your ISP, and they would be subjecting themselves to legal action if they violated those agreements. And people do have choice of ISP.

Loved "The Sting" but my favorite Redford movie was "3 Days of The Condor". We could be getting pretty damn close to that scenario now.

Something else about that NYTimes story last night made me angry after thinking about it, From the story again:

University officials reacted in time-honored fashion: They heaped abuse on the reporter and the paper, accusing them of vox populi scandal-mongering...As always, mum was the word. Wainstein notes that many administrators “made a conscious decision not to ask questions” about irregularities. Some faculty members took the role of useful fools, vigorously defending the indefensible.

Not defending Carolina here, but look what the Times is trying to tell us. Universities always knee jerk defend themselves when scandalous stories come out, with everybody playing mum and defending the indefensible that the glorious Press is pointing out.

Well maybe that happened at Joe Parterno's Nittany Liars about Sandusky-Gate, but did that happen at Duke or at UVA or at wherever Mattress Girl goes to school? No way. Exactly the opposite happened.

At Duke, Broadhead and the Gang of 88 in full PC knee jerk mode, bought hook, line and sinker the initial reports, immediately called for public lynchings of the guilty students until proven innocent, and demanded they be jailed and expelled. And the NYTimes aided, abetted and inflamed passions in that gross miscarriage of justice.

I didn't follow the UVA Rape case too much, but if the school knee jerk reacted "in time honored fashion" by heap(ing) abuse on the reporter and the paper, accusing them of vox populi scandal-mongering" that's news to me. I thought they rolled over and shut the Frat Down, and essentially exacerbated attacks on the innocent Frat boys right from the git-go. Same with mattress girl, and probably a dozen other instances we can collectively come up with.

Overall point is that the New York Times lies in some fashion just about every time they post a story, and if it's a story damning something happening at some College, recent history would tell us that the School is as likely, if not much more likely, to immediately jump on the side of the NYTimes and their favored accusers than they are to stay neutral or call BS and deny the allegations. That's the new "time honored fashion."

Why does Gorsuch need 60?

After extensive debate, the Committee sent the nomination to the full Senate without a recommendation either way. Thomas was confirmed by the Senate with a 52 to 48 vote on October 15, 1991,[52] the narrowest margin for approval in more than a century. Vice President Quayle presided over the vote in his role as President of the Senate, partly in case his vote was needed to break a potential 50-50 tie

Trade Craft

The reasons I accept Gorsuch are:

The Man-Child will surely proffer something wurst to get even.

Gorsuch is smart..Mebbe smart enuf to fool the genius-idiot.

Then we can move to the bigger issue of impeachment

Trade Craft

There is the theory that if a candidate can't get 60---disqualifys.

lurkersusie

Never mind, found the 60 vote information

First, some definitions, as people often get these terms confused: A filibuster generally refers to extended debate that delays a vote on a pending matter, while cloture is a device to end debate. Filibusters are used by opponents of a nominee or legislation, while cloture is filed by supporters. Under current Senate rules, it takes 60 votes to end debate.

To have any belief in the legitimacy of any major college sports program is naive. All the majors do it. It's just a matter of who gets sacrificed the next time around. Nike U played Nike U yesterday and Nike won. Miracle of miracles South Carolina makes it to the Final Four.

The Zags have a little more legitimacy only because they have been hanging around the edges for so long and recruit Eastern Europeans with lots of consonants in their names. Slobodan like food. Our athlete class is now the same as the old Soviet amateur athlete class but with more bling and less class.

I thought they fed McCain mackerels like the seals at Sea World, CH. Thanks for the clarification. In McCain's case I believe it is White Russians.

Noticed the Turks got gigged by the Germans for having spies in the mosques looking for Gulen supporters. And Flynn has lost all cred if he in fact was plotting to deport Gulen. That's just un'Murican.

Arrests in the Golden State are down 40% so I would imagine that some day in the near future we will see an incident similar to the one in Oklahoma last week. If the police are afraid of the consequences of arresting miscreants there just isn't much faith left in justice any more.

Me too! If the Repub's are stupid enough to give up the Nuke option in exchange for 60 straight Gorsuch votes they really should be horsewhipped, shot, hung, garroted, burned, stoned, quartered, poison-gassed, dragged behind horses, keelhauled, imprisoned, and forced to diagram sentences for the rest of their days on Earth.

Are they that stupid? Lisa Murkowski is.

POLITICO: it only takes three Republicans to defect to deny McConnell the needed majority for a rule change. Sen. Susan Collins from Maine has already said, “I am not a proponent of changing the rules of the Senate.” She was a member of the “Gang of 14” that defused a threat to the filibuster in 2005. Two other institutionalist Republicans remain from that gang: Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham. Two other blue state Republicans reluctant to anger their constituents, Sens. Dean Heller and Cory Gardner, may not be reliable votes. And there are others who have displayed moderate flashes, like Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake and Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

Just a refresher from 4 days ago: WASHINGTON — Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski parted with her Republican peers Thursday on a vote to revoke Planned Parenthood funding, resulting in an unusual tiebreaker vote from Vice President Mike Pence.

Murkowski said she just couldn't get on board with a measure that would peel back health care options for women, for any reason.
