Is Elmer Fudd Sessions taking extra nappy time during the last day of his August recess so he'll be rarin' to go to rein in the rogue FBI? Or has he recused himself from oversight responsibilities because he may have mentioned the agency during the campaign season?

HOUSTON — This city sprawls over 600 square miles, an area so big that Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Detroit could all fit within it simultaneously.

Makes the concept of "overpopulation" seem pretty far fetched.

If Wikipedia and my math are correct. Houston area has 6.8 million people.

The combined population of Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Detroit equals 22.6 million.

I wonder if the moderate baby killers know that there is this much room for Houston's population to grow?

jimmyk,

That's the only time they read the Bible. Whenever there is an issue they go to a Concordance and look up every reference, so as to find something to club their opponents with.

There's pretty selective about when they quote Scripture, however. I notice they ignore the passages calling homosexuality a sin or pointing out how precious the life of a child is.

Think I've mentioned this here before but I remember reading awhile back that the entire population of the world could fit into the state of Texas.

It is big! :-)

Janet the expert 🚬

I'm no fan of Osteen, but I could not stand the bashing.
I dropped people on FB because of it.

Who was gonna take care of the people that came in? Were members of the church taking care of their own families?
Any chance there would be suing if something happened to people coming in?

It is ridiculous to pick out one organization & bash them.
Did Target stores open up & let people camp there?
Did Nordstrom at Houston Galleria open up to let people stay there?


jimmyk

glasater, if I have the numbers right, putting the entire world population into Texas would result in a density of 27,000 people per square mile. The density of Manhattan is about 67,000 per square mile.

So it works, but you might not like all of your neighbors. :)

How about organizations of the left?
Were they open, taking in people & letting them sleep & stay over there?
Abortion clinics, all University buildings, all government buildings (libraries, auditoriums, etc.)?

How about any art museums? Did they open their doors & house & feed & treat hurricane victims?

There is a Sierra Club chapter in Houston - http://www.sierraclub.org/texas/houston

Did they open their doors? The Sierra Club has bajillions of dollars.

GUS

Janet, it's not by accident. The Full Commie is organized. Religion and virtue, decency and moral values. All are targeted and under assault. I've seen several JOM'ers make statements in DEFENSE of Joel Osteen and his Church. Mr Osteen has nothing to DEFEND, he was targeted because he is HIGH PROFILE, and because the VALUES he PORTRAYS, is OPPOSITE of FULL COMMIE VALUES. I don't know Joel Osteen, but his CONGREGATION follow Ostee, Jesus Christ, and Tradional Values.

Has THE FULL COMMIE attacked GEORGE SOROS yet?

Some superb golf. Of course, when you are hitting wedges in to the par 4's, you can generate superb golf.

I don't think Osteen is malicious. I just think he's a dimwit with a pretty face. Justin Trudeau at a pulpit.

Clarice @ 12:44 - Great 30 minutes and worth sharing.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I remain convinced the only reason they went after Osteen was that they couldn't find anything substantial to criticize Trmp over (hence Melania's shoes and the empathy discussion) so they went after the biggest non-leftist target in Houston.

They couldn't go after the black democrat mayor. They couldn't attack Abbott, who was doing a great job and on TV almost 24-7. No way were they going after athletes os stadiums.

Hence, Joel Osteen. Their thinking was "Trump supporters are Christians so Osteen is worth attacking."

The truly are nasty people.

JimNorCal,

The NORK's are the asian phony Texan, "all hat no cattle", when it comes to EMP. I don't believe they have minituarized their H-bomb tech to fit an ICBM warhead either, regardless of the level of Persian technology.

That is why I wonder if we aren't planning a targeted EMP attack using our own real technology via cruise missles and other surgical delivery systems. We have cloaking technologies deployed in a lot of our priority installations but not the grid. But then the retaliation centers are all cloaked so its a stupid move on his part.

I think the next 72 hours will show either China putting down the sword on Un's neck or Mattis unleashes a special kind of hell.

matt, deplore me if you must

The problem with an EMP attack on North Korea is that the People's computer will fail, denying Dear Leader his porn fix.

Otherwise, the country will continue on with its ca. 1900 power grid and slave labor.

South Korea would bear the brunt of such an attack.

Clarice,

EMP not for their chandeliers in Un's palace but to wipe their I4C and launch processes. Blowing out the candles is a collateral issue.

my mind flashes back to the very day in the early 60's, sitting at a lunch counter in the Quarrier Diner reading the paper, the headline in the Daily Mail was "JFK Budget first ever to break $100 Billion" and I marveled at how damn much cash that was.

OL & daddy,

Was it a Greek owned diner? On Long Island all the diners are owned by greek families. I get breakfast the Peconic Diner in Riverhead after dropping Frederick off for morning practices. Can't beat it.

Our local Sip 'n Soda is greek family owned also. Funny how the Greeks got into big menu restaurants, the Koreans own all the dry cleaners and the Paki's & Indians the 7/11's.

Grandson took me to Metro Diner for lunch today. The original is in Florida and this one has been open about a year. There are now 4 in Indianapolis:

https://metrodiner.com/

The food was very good, but a bit pricey because the portions are huge. Otherwise, pretty decent place. My only objection was that it was way cold in there, so when I finished I went outside to wait while Nate paid, something I wouldn't usually do.

MM,

-peter and I living on Long Island are probably world recognized experts on diners. Also the folks in Jersey, Connecticut and Rhode Island. But for some reason we seem to have one in every hamlet and town.

You will know it is a good diner if the menu is more than twenty pages and weighs 5#'s. Also, if it has blintzes for breakfast and hash. Steak and eggs is a staple.

Does Metro Diner have a case at the register where you can buy whole cakes and pies? If not, tell them to get with the program:)

Old Lurker

Daddy!

Wonderful find at 4:22. That be the place!

No JiB, not Greeks. By the time I came along the twin diners were gone and had been replaced by the Art Deco style building shown toward the bottom of the pics at your link. Same family, the G'daughter of which was in my class at HS. And she was one nice lookin girl, she was. As mentioned in some of that link, that street did become the nice shopping street in the 40s & 50s with other nice deco buildings for several blocks.

The town of course is now in the tank, less than half the size it was when I was a kid.

Now here is the really small world. A few years ago one of the cable tv car channels had a show touring the collections of fat cat collectors and their over the top houses. So I'm watching, drinking an adult beverage, and one of the collections was housed on the lower level of a big CA place, and the setting was made to be a small town street front with the cars parked in front of the storefronts. I'm looking at it and say "that looks real familiar to me...it almost looks like Quarrier Street where I grew up. Then the camera moved to one store front which included the interior as well and lo and behold, it was the Blossom Dairy where I would have lunch on days I was not at the Quarrier Diner one block closer to HS.

Now that was just too weird, and the TV show did not reveal the owner, but just said he was a small town kid who hit the big time, and when his hometown was on the skids, he bought up the street he grew up on and moved it to CA.

Took only a few clicks to find the kid was Chairman/Founder of Cisco, and he sat in front of me in math classes from Jr. HS on, and our families had been friends for several generations.

Your 4:22 touched all of those buttons for me!

Great nostalgia for you and thanks for sharing. Are you on the island?

Boy, last day of summer here and it shows. Lots of easy parking. No one in the Village. Schools start tomorrow. The drive west is bumper to bumper. Praise the Lord and pass the wine. Vendange starts next week in most vineyards.

What I like about Jim Justice, he is trying to restore West "by God" Virginia to the great state for tourism and fun. Many a white water adventure and backpacking there. Love the state.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jack,

Metro Diner isn't what I consider a real diner, even if it was featured on Guy Fiere's show. It has some of the trappings of a diner (varied and large menu) and serves a lot of diner classics (breakfast all day, burgers, fired chicken).

However, the specials today were a blackened chicken quesadilla and some sort of spiced chicken salad. The portions are too big and you can't order a la carte. No pastries or cakes in a case, and it seems that they keep it to cold in order to hasten turnover. It was very crowded and we had to wait half an hour to be seated.

There actually is a real diner about a block south and west of me on a major street. They cater to the students so have a lot of cheapo eats. Menu like you described and old stand-alone building. No cases of baked goods, though.

Doubt it will be the same. We just got done restoring the dunes and all the sea turtle nests have been dug out. We should be safe. Mrs. JiB not going back until after Frederick's first game this week and next. Looks to me SC and NC more of a target then us on LI and in the NE.

But please, Lord, keep it east and away from the Gulf.

Old Lurker

Yes, still on island, Jack. Till mid October. I was thinking about why you get all the big dollar cars and we don't. Then I realized you can't get them on Gulfstreams and the owners ain't about to drive them to the ferry and come over on the slow boats. But it would be a hoot, since the max speed on the Island is 45 and then only on one street for a few miles.

OL,

Funny story.

Most of us here are convinced a lot of the young guys out here partying and driving exotics are rented. So to prove that thought, Frederick one day pulled up to a Ferrari on Hill St. coming into the village and asked the guy waiting at the light how much Hertz charges a day for the ride.

I only wish I could have had a magic camera on his bike to record that reaction.:)

Old Lurker

Maryrose...New River & Gauley...well within cruising range for the 16yo me. Gas was 35 cents.

Cool, OL!

Also some neat WW2 History as I started scrolling through the pages of that link. I was hoping you'd get a kick out of it and I'm glad you did. I want the 60 cent T-Bone steak slathered in a half dozen fried oysters for an extra 30 cents. Also thought it interesting that the link says that Diner's were traditionally off limits to women and mainly for men. I suppose that makes sense in the day, so interesting to see how the owners went out of their way to encourage women to come on it---"THE LADIES INVITED."

And great story about Mister Cisco and the hot granddaughter!

Daddy, the back story on Ladies Invited, and the reason the twin diners were replaced with that two story deco building with the curtains drawn on the second floor windows, was that WV had no liquor by the drink, but private clubs could pour it a glass at a time. Quick thinkers discovered they could have a private club, charge $5 per year in dues, and have one heck of a bar business. Dad's law office was on that same street, and there were maybe four such clubs on that block. If you needed a lawyer or a judge or both, you knew where to find them.

From age 12 through HS, I worked on a parking lot Dad owned, and that view of "The Ott Building" was exactly the view from my "office" all those years.

Captain Hate,

I am sure Laura Bush is a lovely person, but she's about my size and shape and has never learned basic fashion stuff, like if you have a short neck and a full bust do NOT wear round collars, but choose v-necks.

I often thought that designers made her look dowdy on purpose. My clue was that when I occasionally saw her in jeans and a shirt, she looked much slimmer and younger.

I am not a fashion maven but my sister, who has worked in fashion retail all her life, taught me quite a bit. I am able to look presentable without spending a fortune thanks to her advice.

Those Vogue harpies think that we plebes don't remember that Melania was on the cover of their magazine when she married Trump. I happen to remember these details.

http://i.huffpost.com/gen/5266930/thumbs/o-MELANIA-TRUMP-900.jpg?6

I also remember that guests included Oprah, Katie Couric and Matt Lauer, Shaquille O'Neil, Prince Charles, Conrad Black, and the Clintons.

Trump has never hidden his guest list, but you can bet a lot of the guests have. At least Trump's not a phony.

You just know he has had his own intelligence gathering methods since he first got started? How could he not? His success depended on knowing who knew who, who was powerful and who was all show, etc.

And as he got more and more hotels, clubs, and casinos, he picked up stuff from employees.

Boy, the press is really clueless. My youngest sister pointed this out back in the primaries, and she's simply a surgical nurse at a Midwest hospital who didn't know much about politics or government.

OL, that's around the time I was there. I still have my Book of Common Prayer as evidence that there was a time when the religion stood for something good and of eternal value and not a bunch of trendy crap.

TLG, I started watching the game when the score was 44-31 and Gus Johnson quickly filled me in on the significance of the comeback. I ended up cheering for the Aggies to hold on but that, obviously, didn't happen.
