That sounds as much fun as scoring the tax bill. I liked it better when a bunch of different groups voted their own "Champs" and several sets of alumni got big heads all at once.

What does Tim know about football? He's a damn baseball player:)

And brought joy to this honorary Gator's heart for 2 years. I even got to watch him play for St. Augustine Nease when he was being home schooled. In Florida, you can home school and still let your kids play the nearest high school sports teams.

Jack is Back!

So, henry, lets bring back "the POTUS decides" way of proclaiming the national Championship, like Nixon did for Texas:)

Especially, if its between a blue state (USC) v. a red state (Auburn) and Trump gets to choose.

matt - deplore me if you must

USC will be going to the Chik Fil A/Pop Tart Bowl so what do I care?

If there were a playoff or some other more objective metric, that would be okay, but when you get a year like this it's more like medieval physicians reading the turds of the king.

pardon everybody indicted so far, including Flynn.

A commenter at BJG makes some of the same points being made here from time to time. It all makes sense ... but in the end, people like us just don't know what's going on behind the scenes.

"1) Mueller got Flynn to take the charge (with probably no jail time) in exchange for help prosecuting an unnamed person (presumably a bigger fish).
2) Flynn was Obama’s head of the DIA for 2 years.
3) Flynn was Trump’s National Security Advisor for 3 weeks.
4) Obama and Flynn reportedly despised each other.
5) Flynn and Trump were reportedly mutually respectful and cordial to one another.
6) Flynn is a career military guy.
7) The Obama Administration was openly hostile and disrespectful to the military.
8) Trump has great respect for the military, and has surrounded himself with Generals.

Now, ask yourselves … who does Flynn have more dirt on? And which administration is (was) the bigger fish part of?"

Not matching the narrative ...

Agree, DebInGA, as long as the same standard is applied to white cops who are stressed and dealing with snarky kids of other races.
It's not the individual case, it's the narrative.

Jack is Back!

Hard to believe it is December 2nd already. Where did November go?

Tomorrow is the first Sunday of advent. Even my IDF friends are reminding me of Channukah and I haven't even bought candles yet.

All my Christmas shopping so far is online. But I have to buy a new bike for Frederick since he has outgrown his 16" Trek. Now reading for a 18.5" bike since he is 5'10" and projected to achieve either 6'4" or even 6'6". Already buying size 11 shoes for him.

Jack is Back!

Sorry, have to disagree. If you are a cop in a village that is 93% white, you have no excuse for the comment. If it is Chicago on the southside and a bunch of snarky white kids even walked on the sidewalk its still not acceptable.

Tell me what pressure that hispanic cop was under? Go to the wiki on Lake Villa and see how dangerous it is.

Dan Bongino on FB:
"You sure Justice is still blind? The Benghazi mastermind gets off on murder charges. Kate Steinle’s killer gets off on both murder and involuntary manslaughter. BUT, talking to Russians is a political crime worth both a Special Counsel, millions of dollars in investigative time, and the media’s entire attention span?

All while taking millions from the Russians in speaking fees while signing off on the sale of our nuclear fuel is A-Okay and hardly moves the investigative needle. But don’t worry folks “justice is blind.” Blind to Democrats."

Wait.
The Benghazi leader got off?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Back from my nap.

Scared the heck out of my son by talking in my sleep while dreaming and yelling "Help me."

All I can remember in my dream was that someone had their hand over my mouth, like I was being held hostage.

He was afraid some brain thing was happening. I am so sorry I scared him like that!

I rarely talk in my sleep except when I am super-tired.

I think I will go find out what's going on in the news besides football. Sorry guys, but when your school (Indiana) fields pathetic teams for decades, you sort of lose interest in college ball.

I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!

JimNorCal

"I am so sorry I scared him like that!"

This is maybe devious and manipulative ... but MissM, you might consider how to use this to help give him strength to fight alcoholism.
He may not be able to summon enough when it's only for himself. But knowing how it is affecting his Mom might be something that helps to get across the rough patches that inevitably occur.

i agree with much of McCarthy's analysis in Kev's 1.47 link. (And note, especially, that an honest media would have been shining the spotlight on the Obama administration's disgraceful efforts to use the transition period to cripple the incoming administration via both the anti-Israel UN resolution AND the premature Russia sanctions).
However, his opinion that Flynn spoke voluntarily to the FBI out of stupidity makes no sense, given what we know of the man. Something else explains it, imo.

CH,

When you think about it (hold your nose) they should have stuck with Kiffin. What could have he done worse than his successors. Reminds me of Chuckles. Had too much knowledge of the game, like Belichick, but didn't know how to communicate to his team or the donor/fans.

Captain Hate

At the risk of antagonizing my friend Buckeye, I really like Baker Mayfield.

Tonight Wisconsin should consider it their first playoff game: win or go home.

 narcisoyea

My theory was bin qumu the gitmo detainee was responsible, but there's a problem with that theory, hes Norwegian blue whereas bel hadj is very much alive and has a base in tripoli, he was held by the Brits for a number of years so he has a big chip on his shoulder.

Captain Hate

JiB,

Kiffin left on his own to pursue his dream job with USC (granted, it turned into a nightmare, either because the entire Trojan athletic department went into complete meltdown mode or LK wasn't ready as a HC, or both). It seemed like he had them on the right track of picking up the pieces from Fat Phil's last years, who I've heard still has some input into the hiring process.

I haven't heard anything about Antifa lately. Somebody cut off their funding after opinion polling?

Marlene

MM's@2:10 doesn't show Angus King,who is a IINO (independent in name only). Steve Bannon is trying to get either Paul or Ann LePage to run,but I think they are both sick of politics. Angus is the perfect 1st District candidate,his appeal is to southern Maine. The 2nd District is dying a slow death,it is a forest and farm economy that can't be sustained in the 21st century. The paper mill in the town near our cabin property was partly consumed by an arson fire since we've been in Florida. A way of life is gone forever.

CH,

Forgot the timeline with Kiffin, you're right. I like Mayfield also but he has that Jay Cutler attitude and that doesn't work in the big leagues.

Iggy,

Back in the day we were working in the SoCal desert alongside a welding crew. They actually cast their welds with a mold around the two rail ends and a metal hopper attached to the top where they pour the Thermite powder and light it off.

At the appropriate time after everything has gone off, one of the Mexicans saunters over and warms up his lunch tortillas in the pan that held the Thermite powder.

Sorry to cover old ground but did you just start taking magnesium on your own or was it through consulting your regular doctor. The idea of minimizing the senior moment data retrieval time is increasingly appealing.

JiB, didn't the Cutler hate not begin until after he signed that whopper contract with Denver and became a whiny underperforming douche?

Cutler was the best thing that ever happened to Green Bay.

"Obama cut the number of conventional troops in war zones from 150,000 to 14,000 over his eight years in office. But Special Operations forces never went home: they stayed in Iraq and Afghanistan, or went elsewhere. Obama had shifted the burden of the fight against the insurgencies to commandos."

I felt bad for A&M's head coach for that early season meltdown against UCLA. Not sure why Jimbo is going there other than they're shoveling almost as much money at him as Zippy did Iran.

Good Morning. Slept to noon---Yippie!

Does anyone know with the Tax Bill if the changes will make it easy enough for an individual like myself to be able to do my Income Taxes by myself, without need of a CPA or Tax Attorney?

I had done my Taxes for 40+ years until I was confronted with "The Kiddie Tax," an incomprehensible set of rules dealing with my daughters in college while working part time jobs. That frustrating incomprehensibility forced me to go to the CPA.

I would love, love, love it for the TAX forms to once again be comprehensible and doable by an average citizen of reasonable intelligence who can read.

I remember last year coming out of lurkerhood I posted at length about magnesium supplementation and the benefits of doing so consistently.

Now it's been 19 months and the benefits make up a healthy list.

I didn't stop with me.

I'm helping my sisters with supplementing their diets and their childrens'.

More importantly, they are supplementing the grands' and the great grands' diets in the Vitamin D, magnesium, and niacin areas.

Niacin fortifies the kids against the onset of anxious depression syndrome.

Magnesium is especially good fortification against "attention deficits."

There is a lot of bad behavior that is connected to bad nutrition.

My sister had two teenagers that were taking anti-depressants and smoking weed chronically a year ago.

They've been following the same supplement regimen as me (dosage appropriate). They have stopped smoking weed and are off the anti-depressants.

They have energy. Their grades have improved. They find school interesting. Their TV consumption has dropped by half. Their interest in "hanging out" has decreased.

They are reading more because they can remember what they read on a page. One of the things they hated about reading was getting to the end of a page and not remembering what they'd read.

Speaking of bad behavior and the connection to bad food and water and lack of nutrients in foods.

The same can be said for the syndromes of poverty, welfarism, jailism, youth studding and breeding compulsions, the kind of low self-esteem that leads to teen prostitution, narcotics dependency, and hyper-violence tendencies.

Take a tour of a ghetto, barrio, reservation and check out the mainstream food supplies in those areas. There is a connection to the bodies dropping, the disease rates, and the high school dropout rates with the foods and water supplies.

It's odd that if one advocates for clean water, better food and vitamin supplementation that the advocate will be threatened with jail time for "making health claims", the stuff that's the domain of conventional doctoring and big Pharma.

Funny. I've never heard of anybody being hospitalized for overdosing or experiencing side effects for taking proper dosages of vitamin supplements, or drinking water that contains accessible oxygen in it without any disease signatures such as strep, staph, e coli, and flouride.

We are not living in a time of spiritual or moral awakenings. We are living in a time of cultural and political war. Morality is a weapon in the struggle, used by the Left to attack or defend. If it works for them to puff up their own legitimacy and “reputation” as do-gooders and cultural saints, then they’ll use it. If it works to beat up on their opponents who are making political decisions no different than voters have made throughout the course of American history on both sides of the aisle, then they’ll don the armor of morality and take aim...

The worst thing any conservative can do today, in any situation that is politically motivated on any level, is to think the issues before them are just about maintaining one’s own reputation or simply standing for “principles” without an eye to the battle. If you’re willing to abandon those who are in the political and cultural foxhole with you because you’re afraid to lose your personal moral authority (or the moral authority of a political party) due to labels manufactured by the Left, you’ve already lost your moral authority.
