A surprise.

Lucy, football, Charlie Brown flat on his back.

Rinse, repeat.

Jack is Back!

He only does this to get his phony persona on the MFM TV shows. What a silly old man. And this is what we have in the Senate. He is not the only one. They get there and they think their shit doesn't stink. Except for a very few they are all the same in that institution. I refuse to call it a club.

Meanwhile moodys proving that Churchill line, we're only debating the price, downgrades the Uk's credit worthiness not because they have delayed brexut but because they are considering it.

Ha, Trump going after McCain.

Has he trashed Roy Moore?

TK, he only said Roy would have a difficult path to winning the general. While Luther would be a lock in the general.

GUS

No TK he said he will campaign for him if he wins.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Now going after the NFL over taking the knee at the National Anthem.

GUS

He hasn't said.....Ah don't feel in no ways tyerd

The Gipper Lives

So if McCain himself wrote the perfect bill that would save lives and save strapped families money and unleash small businesses, he wouldn't vote for unless Democrats permitted?

What a horse's ass.

I'm so sorry I ever supported him. It will never happen again.

Threadkiller

he said he will campaign for him if he wins.

Hmmmm..

Janeprobably about 10 minutes after getting there

Not a great speech.

Threadkiller

I didn't see your answer, MM.

Thanks.

IMO, this sounds good for Roy.

GUS

It's not a speech Jane, it's a campaign endorsement and a STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS

 narciso.

It suffers buy comparison to that appearance with session was it 2015.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I think it is a pretty good endorsement.

I also think it is conciliatory to those who support Moore.

The anecdote about Strange giving him a vote without asking for favors was very good,

Now he's going after the non-readiness about Obamacare.

Meant to tell you earlier, but I am a great fan of Midsomer Murders, too.

I love the cast, the scenery, and the plots.

I guess I'll just stick with The Orville.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Very good speech. The President used this appearance to not only endorse Strange but to review his accomplishments and trash those who oppose him.

I hear from RSBN that the President will be in Indiana next week, although not a rally.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Nytol!

I didn't get enough sleep last night.

This guy Mueller once headed the FBI? And he can't make a case of Russian collusion without bringing in a Ukrainian PR effort during the Obama administration.

He is spending your's and my Money grasping at straws. Fire this guy and his band of Dem donors and activists now.

What an embarrassment to our laws and protections. Cold Sore was more right than provocative with his Sig Heil salute. All is missing are the black shorts and brown shirts.

I loved the President mocking the MARCIA MARCIA RUSSIA thingy tonight.

Here is a simple question.
What LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITY in HISTORY has been known to investigate a NON-CRIME, with ZERO ALLEGATIONS of wrong doing?

Threadkiller

I scrolled through some of the comments on CTH's live stream of Trump's speech.

Any one who shows support for Moore is called out as a "Cruzbot."

Hahaha!

Moore is a Birther. No self respecting Cruzbot would side with a loon.

Dopes.

 narciso.

I would tend to disagree tk, what strong conviction has strange demonstrated in his career, Cruz is a cibcictuon politician, even when it is unpopular in the short term.

I disagree also.

McCain repeatedly proves point that some sumbitches are dumb--just plain dumb. Especially those that graduated at the top of the bottom 5 in his class at Annapolis. I've read that his father wasn't the sharpest crayon in the box either.

OCare put a shitload of power in the "shalls" bestowed upon the HHS Secretary.

Tom Price can probably fix more than the administration is letting on but doesn't so that OCare does indeed fall on its own weight.

Maybe Trump just needs any GOP bill to cross his desk so he can effectively fix healthcare through the existing OCare legislation while giving credit to an all Republican effort.

Just a thought.

Maybe Trump should use Soul Man since Sam Moore said this after being invited to sing at Trump's inauguration;

"Moore said he won’t be bullied by protesters because performing at Trump’s inauguration is the “right thing to do.”

“I am not going to let them, the left side, intimidate me from doing what I feel is the right thing to do for the country and that [presidential] seal,” Moore said, according to the Associated Press. “Give the man a shot. He hasn’t even said ‘I do’ yet. Give him a chance. If you don’t like him after four years, then don’t vote for him next time.”"

P.S. - This afternoon a car in front of me had a bumper sticker that said IMMIGRANT in large black letters. Anyone else seen one? I want one that says CITIZEN.

I rarely go on Facebook, but when I did go today there was an announcement of Pres Trump going to to Alabama to support acting Sen Strange.
The reason this came to my news feed is that I have a friend in Huntsville who commented on the announcement:

"How about they dump Mitch McConnell and we send BOTH Luther and Roy!"

Sounds good! :)

Good Morning!

55 F here in Cambridge England this morning and overcast, but the Duxford WW2 airfield is doing their reenactment of The Battle Of Britain this weekend so in 2 hours we'll hop a bus and head down south o catch the action. Supposed to be 15 Spitfires flying in formation which I think must be pretty close to all of them remaining.

FOX News has been pulled off the satellite TV here, as I recall recently reading that the Murdock's cut some Deal that would enhance their Sky-News coverage at the expense of yanking FOX, so I am back to the Euro channels and the rest of the usual suspects (i.e. CNN, Al Jazeera, RT, etc)

Interesting to see that the Parsons Green illegal immigrant bomber bought his supplies via Amazon. I suspect that if Amazon was owned by the Koch Brothers that story would be getting banner headline scrutiny at the WaPo, but it being Bezos's baby I'm expecting it will get a pass.

Cheerio!

More on Catalan independence (if I decode Narciso correctly, he does not approve. Noted with respect! But still a fascinating story of Euro centrifugal forces).

Spain's plan to stash thousands of riot police on cruise ships in Catalan harbors runs into trouble. Spain grabs the .CAT internet domain which an independent Catalan would want to use for business and govt bodies.

https://mishtalk.com/2017/09/22/defiant-catalans-block-spains-military-boats-from-landing-spain-seizes-cat-domain/

More than 4,000 members of Spain’s Guardia Civil are being dispatched to the troubled region amid concerns over divided loyalties in the autonomous community’s own police force, the Mossos d’ Esquadra.

Spanish authorities wanted to house the Guardia Civil officers on four cruise ships – two in Barcelona, one in Tarragona and another in Palamos.

But as thousands took to the streets to protest against the detention of Catalan officials, local dock workers joined the backlash.

The Assembly of Stevedores of the Port of Barcelona announced that workers would not provide any services to boats carrying security forces, a decision it said was taken “in defence of civil rights”.

Colleagues in Tarragona quickly followed suit and the Catalan government then denied permission to dock in Palamos – which, unlike Barcelona and Tarragona, falls under regional rather than national control.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

anonamomm,

Thanks for finding that Calvin and Hobbes story. My son had a stuffed tiger when the comic strip first appeared in our paper.

That story made me cry. It was really beautiful.

Catalan independence leaders vow there will be a vote regardless of Spain's actions.
https://mishtalk.com/2017/09/22/catalonia-president-we-will-vote-on-independence-whether-spain-likes-it-or-not/
Thousands have gathered at the gates of Catalonia’s judiciary body to demand the release of a dozen officials arrested in connection with an upcoming vote on independence.
...
(Carles Puigdemont, 130th president of Catalonia):
After three centuries under Spanish rule, on Oct. 1, citizens of Catalonia will finally have the chance to exercise their right to self-determination. More than 5 million eligible voters will have the right to decide on a simple question: “Do you want Catalonia to become an independent state in the form of a republic?”
... In our last regional election in September 2015, pro-independence parties won 47.8 percent of the vote ... Unionist parties won 39.1 percent of the votes ...the rest of the votes went to parties that defend the right to self-determination but are not necessarily in favor of independence.
...
Madrid has refused to accept this democratic challenge, and has opted instead for the path of authoritarian repression. In most parts of the developed world, police protect ballot boxes, polling stations, and voters. In Catalonia today, the situation is the opposite. Spanish security forces are confiscating ballots and ballot boxes, stripping campaign posters from the walls, and intimidating citizens. They have arrested officials of the Catalan government, tapped telephones, raided private residences, and banned political rallies. ... Madrid has even blocked proxy servers, a procedure employed by only the most totalitarian regimes.

We have lots of friends in Barc and they to a person oppose independence. It's a Marxist/Leninist led effort by the most radical of academia and socialist labor activists. Spain is right to show force and nip in the bud now.

Hi Jack. It's at Duxford. So far has been just walking the flightline and touring the museums at the Airfield. The new American Aviation. Museum is really excellent and for the festivities there are docents everywhere doing good explanations. Very large crowds and the flying part just about to start. Just after noon over here.
