It was tremendous.

So the Awan brothers:

--- steal $120,000 worth of secret Intel equipment,

--- then report it missing to the Dem's they work for,

--- and then the Dem's cut a check that makes the $120,000 theft disappear from the books.

The perfect crime.

Shortly after the transit shifted to the other side was the best time ever to go pick up contacts from costco. If I had parked closer I would have had to have been in the tire bays.

Ignatz,

Thanks for the info on "Goldfinger." I haven't seen it since it first came out when I was in high school, so my memory is a little bit faulty.

And Dems being Dems.... nobody goes to jail. Ever.

Good afternoon! It became noticeably darker around three o'clock,but we have so much tree cover,I thought maybe a thunderstorm was rolling thru. Then I took a nap and when hubby got home at four,the sky was bright blue.

Wait till Jefferson Beauregard Sessions gets wind of it, henry.

Very very cool to see "diamond ring" at Clemson!

Friend of mine's son proposed at that exact location at that exact moment.

How's that for being down with the cool?

Jack is Back!

I finished mowing the back 40 that Frederick left for me though he is to do it if he wants his fee ($20). We used to have a landscaper do it for $80 (2/3 acre) but we decided he needed a project during school vacay. Bought him a 21" Ego battery power mower. I am really impressed with it as it can mow most of the yard on a full charge.

Since football practice is 2 a day I gave him a break but tomorrow only morning practice. I left the details under the apple trees for him.

"At the White House, despite all the warnings from experts about the risk of eye damage, President Donald Trump took off his eclipse glasses and looked directly at the sun."
Miss Marple the Deplorable

Dave,

I am spending time on Twitter reposting the pictures taken during the eclipse where the President has his glasses on.

That AP story is once again, fake news.

Look at how they LIE about everything! It's unbelievable.

Dave (in MA)

There's a brief moment when he first comes out where he glances upward. If that counts as looking directly at the sun then every baseball player ever is blind.

Who cares about some stinking eclipse? This is much more interesting:

Alaska Man tattoos the northern lights on his head

Eddy Beard says it took about 17 hours to tattoo the northern lights on his head, but he says the process was more of a spiritual journey.

“I feel like the Holy Spirit led me to that tattoo parlor,” Beard said. “Years ago I was really captivated by the Aurora, and it just grabbed a hold of me.”

From the last thread:
The 2024 eclipse is annular not total, no?

I think 2023 is annular and 2024 is total.

daddy

I think the 2024 eclipse will be italicized.

I've been looking into ways to leave Google. If not interested in the nitty gritties of that, please skip.

I have a lot of stuff with the racist commie snowflakes, from gigabytes of Gmail and Docs down to highly customized Chrome extensions, so I have to take this one step at a time.

The new beta of Outlook.com looks pretty good for email, and I may try to import 10+ years of Gmail there, but first I wanted to find a decent browser from a company that didn't fire their CEO for supporting Obama's and Hillary's former positions on gay marriage.

Although it only garners 1% market share, Opera (for Windows) seems like a great browser. It has extensions like email notifiers, history cleaners, and even something called Violentmonkey that runs the narcisolator script. Hopefully their CEO isn't a urine throwing Antifa thug.

I think it's doable for everything but Google Sheets. Microsoft has a free web version of Excel, but it doesn't allow scripts and I have some pretty involved Sheets with Javascript (invented by the disgraced Mozilla guy!) macros. If anyone knows of a solution to that, I'd be interested even if it wasn't free.

In 2024 Indianapolis will be in an area that gets totality.

henry

. I'm reasonably certain that if it got startup or venture cap funding, the CEO will be vetted to ensure Silicon Valley mandatory SJW levels. It's not clear a true escape exists. (Even if they avoid Goolag, they end up hosted on AWS (Bezos)).

Oh no! Trump didn't wear his glasses! I've mentioned this before,but after the devastating ice storm in Maine in 1998,Al Gore came up to look at the damage. The utilities companies,local LE and state officials begged people not to go anywhere near downed utility lines. So,for all the world to see,on the front page of the Maine papers,Gore picked up a downed wire for a photo op.

Pretty f'n sad, henry. I don't even do Twitter, and never did Facebook, but I signed up for a Gab account.

President Trump has named Carl Higbie as Chief of External Affairs for National Service.

Former Navy SEAL, spokesman for Great America PAC, 2 tour Iraqi war veteran, Spec Warfare Operator 1st class.

2024 Eclipse is total
I just had to turn the italics back on, you know, just because. Marlene will be pleased to learn that Maine gets the full dose of totality on that one. April 8, 2024

Opera is now owned by the Chinese. I'm not sure that's an improvement.

I use Midori when a site that I want to visit uses Adblock suppression software. That's not often, since usually I don't want to read any particular item that badly. I've no idea how Midori would stand up for full-time use.

cboldt

Oh yeah, look at that. Khatadin is almost smack on the line. That place gets crowded enough. It's going to be a mob scene.

Yes,cboldt. Seven more years! I'll be 70! Mt.Katahdin will be a prime spot,but it will probably still be snow covered.

daddy

Apparently this Chicago weatherman is becoming some sort of City icon for crying during the eclipse: Tom Skilling Cried During The Eclipse, And We Love Him Even More Now

Marlene

Dave @ 5:20...this is my *shocked* face. In a previous thread,someone mentioned Cornelius Vanderbilt owning slaves. Several years ago,I read a book titled "Dead End Gene Pool" by a 4x granddaughter of the Commodore. She is probably a long lost cousin of Anderson Cooper. I always thought that would be a perfect title for a book about the Kennedy clan.

cboldt

Snow, schmoe. Snowshoes (or skis), crampons, and an ice axe. If not Baxter or Pamola Peak, there are plenty of lesser hills in the park. That place is magic. Only been up it three times, it's the drive that kills me.

GUS

Anderson's Pooper is immune from the Slavery rap. He's in a protected class.

Marlene

cboldt,when we drove back down from The County on Friday morning,Katahdin looked hazy,it looked like it belonged in the Smokies.
We drove for 30 years on I-95 to get to southern Maine and NH. The highlight of that boring trip was Mt. Katahdin in all seasons. I'm so old that I remember when I-95 was a two lane highway between Bangor and Houlton. Hubby is so old that he remembers family trips on Route 1,Fort Kent to Houlton,Route 2, Houlton to Bangor.
Hubby went to St. Joseph's in your neck of the woods and one year it took us 13 hours from North Windham to Fort Kent in a snowstorm. Fun times!

Dave in MA @ 4:34 PM

Great photo of President Trump, who has after all eclipsed every other politician in recent years including the wonder boy from Chicago - via Hawaii, Indonesia, Pok-ees-taan and other exotic places.

cboldt

Marlene - I am half a mile from St. Joes. Was a weekly walk for me and the doggie, Saturday and Sunday down to the college, take the trails, usually to the lake, then home. He loved those walks. The college kids ditch food.

Bill Clinton is from Steubenville??? Who knew.
I thought Steubenville was a nice place. Franciscan U. is there.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

President Trump wore glasses during the eclipse!!!

WHen he came out he jokingly acted like he wouldn't, but of course he did, along with his family and cabinet members who were there.

I hope tonight he tells the country that we need 4000 more men over there so he's sending the reporters from WaPo, NYT, MSNBC, CMM, and the networks.

cboldt,we were at St.Joes last summer. We've been there over the years and it has changed so much. It is a beautiful campus. They've developed an event area down by the lake. North Windham was a sleepy little town when we were there,the only traffic was in the summer on Route 302.

Assuming NorCal hasn't disappeared up its own backside by then.

daddy on iPhone

On reflection I am surprised the MSM did not advise all viewers to view the eclipse without eye protection. Since the eclipse only occurred in Red State America only Red State Americans would go blind. It'd be a Conservstive version of "Day of the Triffids." Then all The blinded Conservatives would lose their jobs and be dependent upon Public Assistance and ObamaCare, and by the 2024 eclipse today's entire Red State eclipse swath would have turned Blue.

What a crisis was wasted!

Couldn't be have just bought the T-shirt?

Or a funny looking hat if the Northern Lights had to be on his head.

I think it's doable for everything but Google Sheets. Microsoft has a free web version of Excel, but it doesn't allow scripts..

At the likely risk that I betray how over-my-head I am in this department, maybe the Open Office spreadsheet would work for you (I know their word processor works for me).

Clarice,

Reading McCarthy's article I see the prosecutor is an Obama holdover because her replacement hasn't been confirmed.

Another black mark against Mitch McConnell.

Clarice:
Excellent article by Andrew McCarthy.
Lies of omission and cover-up

 narciso.

So the secret service, which really has done a bang up job, all year. Is complaining about the cost, heck maybe they should be replaced with backwater,neeacademi, oit dyncorp they have proven themselves untrustworthy.

Nothing to do with recusal. Obama holdover as DC prosecutor and her replacement is still held up in the Senate, courtesy of the loser Mitch McConnell.

It's a metaphor, Miss Marple.

Very very cool to see "diamond ring" at Clemson!

Friend of mine's son proposed at that exact location at that exact moment.

How's that for being down with the cool?

That is very very VERY cool!

And my sons are going to love learning of that. As will my "eclipse nerd" partner, who is a Clemson grad. He went to Idaho--but could have watched from his momma' front steps in Greenville.
They were concerned about clouds in SC this time of year.

maryrose

Just saw the Phoenix mayor asking President Trump not to come to his city.
Last time I checked he won Arizona in the presidential.
I cannot recall a single time anyone told Obama not to show.

Jack is Back!

I am waiting for an eclipse where the sun blocks out the moon. Talk about global warming:)

The previous is a modest proposal, director allies, you had a detailed who would actually affirm not to take a bullet for a protected, and a while host of incidents where they behaved the samecway.

That would be called a nova, that would be a very brief instant on our part.

Trump is an expert at trolling the media. HIs little act on looking at the sun without his glasses is perfection. No one noticed his eyes were closed because that would require truth instead of self-fulfilling hope.

Captain Hate

Reading McCarthy's article I see the prosecutor is an Obama holdover because her replacement hasn't been confirmed.

Another black mark against Mitch McConnell.

And more signs that Elmer Fudd Sessions is in way over his head.

Rocco

Did you notice the date on the indictment, November 13, 2016? Does this mean Comey investigated and recommended Lynch indict? Five days after the election? They were betting on a Clinton win to hide their treason.

Frau Kino

>>>Backpfeifengesicht<<<

Greg Stanton, simpleton Dem mayor of Phoenix, tells Pres. Trump to stay away from "his town."

Does he think we don't remember Lynch on the tarmac with Clinton? The DoJ can grill him on his participation in hiding the facts.

Old Lurker

Ditto Cap'n. That 4d chess trick Sessions plans had better be good.

Holding my breath now.

Jack is Back!

Frau,

I hope Trump shows up with the Proud Boys as his escort when he does his Phoenix show.

Wait until the Mayor finds out that when the POTUS shows up it is run by the Secret Service and not his police dept.

AZ governor, a Republican, will skip Trump's Phoenix event. Hmm? Hard for me to see this visit helping Trump.

Ducey, no relation I dont you think, was big on Medicaid expansion.

Ryan is delayed until after Trump's news... likely something other than "4,000 more troops" or at least more than that. Everyone will be asleep before Ryan hits the stage.

Burry

"AZ governor, a Republican, will skip Trump's Phoenix event. "

The Governor is meeting with Trump at the airport upon arrival. The Governor should skip the rally and get ready to send in the national guard once the lefties start another riot.

P.S. The AZ Central seems like a real lefty rag. The media has no desire to just report news, everything is opinion with a big time lefty slant.

Captain Hate

On Sunday, Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich showed some leadership, warning Trump against further ratcheting up an already-tense situation.

“You’re going to go to Phoenix and make a speech? Fine,” Kasich said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “But when you go, try to use that as an opportunity to say something that’s going to bring people together.”

Taking advice from this loser? I don't think so.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

DebinGA,

I never try to second guess him, as stuff is often different than I initially think. He may be there to endorse Kelli Ward. Also, the last governor, Jan Brewer, was a huge supporter during the campaign and has spoken repeatedly in his defense, and she may be there.

The current governor may not want to get caught in the crossfire between Trump and Flake.

GUS

I'd tell Kasich the Mail Boy, to write that speech, let us read it, then laugh at his ugly ass.

Kevlar Kid

What is Kasich's claim to excellence in American politics?

That's what I thought.

Martha MacCallum just informed me that President Trump is going to give a speech on THE LONGEST WAR IN U.S. HISTORY. (setting up narative). She went on to tell me that this longest WAR in U.S. history has cost 11 U.S. lives this year. Then she tells me that 11 is more than last years total. Let me review. LONGEST WAR IN U.S.HISTORY/11 LIVES LOST THIS YEAR/MORE LIVES LOST THIS YEAR THAN LAST YEAR.

440

Anyone smell what I'm cooking??

40x11=440.

Free James D!

Giants are on TV tonight. It's going to be a long year - the offensive line is just as crappy as last season. Which makes sense, because genius Jerry Reese didn't think it was important to improve it at all.

 narciso.

So they haven't introduced that modest proposal of shock collars we suggested.

Clarice Feldman

rocco--I believe Nov 13 is when the grand jury was empaneled, not when the indictment was handed down. Your point, however, is correct IMO--they tried to keep this bottled up as long as they could.
