What's Franken have to say? He's an old hand at faking and wrestling.

Thomas Collins

Not fake. Prearranged. Big difference. It's an athletic feat to jump off the ring ropes, land near your opponent who is lying on the mat, and simulate a knee to the head of your opponent that would break anyone's jaw without maiming your opponent or yourself. Pro wrestlers are most analogous to stunt people who also are the main actors and actresses.

Fake is a big time actor or actress in action films who can't do the stunts.

I was hoping for a fish slapping based on the thread title.

I agree with TC, those wrestlers are serious athletes with prearranged results.

Saw an interview today on Fox that supported not further investigating Hillary Clinton because she had lost the election because "she was a corrupt person" so no further action is required.

I guess if I think I might break the law, I should run, probably for some hopeless seat, so that my failure to get elected would mean I can break the law at my leisure.

Jack is Back!

Stunt men, just like most of Congress.

I agree with TC, those wrestlers are serious athletes with prearranged results.

Since they got roided up I called them real life cartoons. But yes, a lot of them were high school and college athletes with either no way to make money after college, amateur wrestlers for example, or couldn't make it in the pros (Ron Simmons was an All American linebacker for Free Shoes but was undersized for the NFL; drafted by the Browns, he was cut and ripped but not enough mass).

Franken once used a "wrestling move" on an American citizen who was practicing free speech.

HE TOLD ME.

Early Drafts of Comey Exoneration Memo Said That Hillary Clinton's Secret Server Was "Likely" Hacked and Accessed by Hostile Powers;
This Was of Course Omitted By the Time Comey Publicly Exonerated Her, Softened to "Possible"

Unfreakingbelievable!

I can't wait for Janes Comey, genius scholar and "Gods gift to honesty and integrity" to put up his next tweet about how moral he is while misattributing his tweet to Edmunde Burke. Maybe this one:

Edmund Burke (1785) "The Ends Justify The Means .

Since I was gone part of today, I am glad I noticed this tweet by Sundance:

Storm Forecast:

*Earlier today Trump honored Secret Service.

*Tomorrow POTUS goes to Quantico to visit with the FBI peeps and give them attaboys.

*Tomorrow night, POTUS heads to Camp David for the weekend amid heightened security.

*Something's coming.

======================================

Has he even been to Camp David since the Inauguration? I can't remember for sure, but I don't think so.

Miss M, our friend in Chicago passed me a tweet this morning concerning China moving troops to the NK border, and making them swear allegiance to Beijing. Kim may be "fixed" soon.

Captain Hate

It's hard to believe he hasn't, Miss Marple, but I can't remember it happening..

Another Bob

I wondered where Sundance got that "heightened security" bit. Especially in the context of suckling up to the domestic security services.

If it's gonna happen before the Olympics, it's got to be soon Henry. They start feb 9.

BTW, on the overhead TV screesn, I see that MSNBC's pencildick with the glasses on has had on Jen Rubin for a long concerned segment diatribing Trump , and CNN's Anderson Cooper oas had on Dem Senator Warner from Virginia damning the Reoubs for questioning Muellers integrity, and he was followed by John Kasich. Now MSNBC has on NYork aaty General Schneiderman damning the FCC ruling. Now Anderson has onnOmarossa with a ticker claiming questions raised about lack of diversity in the white house

CNN ticker saying White House wont say is Omarosa still getmting a Salary? How come CN doesnt ask that question of Strzok, Page, Ohr, and his wife Ward Churchill?

What did Katshit talk about; how this is a rough time of year for mailmen?

We don't get any real news, it is the blank pages that roddy pipers saw past his mirrored shades.

I raised some questions about that grishenko story re koslovsky, they use a whole different software than was found in the dnc metadata.

henry

Thanks Jane. I couldn't quit figure Lee as for more govt, but I don't trust any of them anymore. As far as Kim & the O's, I don't see the games happening with Kim still in power.

Catsmeat

Done with shopping, dear Lord, thank you. I long for the days when as a child I could buy with my little mite some chocolate-covered cherries for my father, some pretty thing for my mother, and some theoretically interesting bouche for my sister (two years younger), and thus have done. Admittedly, I am thinking back to the early 70s and thus not rationally, and of course I got bigger.

Yes, how can you have games of peace with a nuclear maniac directly to the north? Although they didn't have any problem with Hitler hosting their wonderful games.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Catsmeat,

When I was out with my friend today we stopped at CVS drugstore to get some things for me While we were there she was thrilled to find chocolate-covered cherries, which to her mean CHRISTMAS. They were a staple at her grandmother's Christmas goody table when she was a kid.

My daughter, son and I will exchange small gifts purchased at discount shops. The fun is in finding stuff that they like dirt cheap. A few days ago my daughter bought him nice bit cheap socks at Aldi's. The fun is not in the amount of the gift but in finding things which fit their personalities. One of the things I will be looking for is anything to do with the old cartoon strip The Far Side, which was my son's favorite when he was in high school.

daddy peddling like a hamster

Remember as a kid reading that wonderful book "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn" and also seeing the darn good movie? Remember that scene where the girl is in the Library simply going thru the stacks starting at letter A and checkng out and reading every book as she goes along? Well the Librarian stops her sensibly and leads her to some great, more interest appropriate things for her. Well in the New book stacks in the Library today it struck me you could never let a youngster in this day and age do such a thing. They' d be stunned, appalled, and thoroughly corrupted by they time they got to Aardvark. What a world.

Oh, I have a Far Side cup I could send you, with a devil leading a fitness class and saying something like "10,003, 10,004, ..."--you get the joke! Would send at cost, as I have wanted to get rid of it ever since it became mine about 30 years ago.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

daddy,

I loved that book "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn." I think that is one I will check out on my next trip. Haven't read it since I was in my 30's.

Got to thinking about how schools brainwash kids. As I have said before, my daughter was a fine arts major ad then went back for a Masters in Library Science.

Here is how much school changed her: When she was an undergrad (sophomore and junior) she used to eat her lunch in her car at the art school while listening to GORDON LIDDY on the radio. She was a huge fan of his.

Now, she is a Bernie supporter. Just goes to show you.

Catsmeat

Also, I want what Australia has, drones which tell the beach-going public when there are sharks about--could use such a thing all round Florida's coasts. The year I got Lasik (about 10 years ago) my first visit to Daytona thereafter found me marveling at the glories of the surf without glasses, but then I saw quite clearly a very large 10 footer of some sort making his unconcerned way south (it was mid-day, and so he wasn't feeding) about ten yards past where most of the beach revellers were reveling. Yelled like mad, but the surf covered it, and the shark just went on tooling by. But never forgotten, and then I thought of all the other sharks I had never seen there in years of summers just because I lacked the technology, as it were--gulp.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Catsmeat,

I don't know how to get you my address without posting it here, otherwise I would be happy to pay for shipping it.

Am going to hit up Half-Price Books and a couple other places. Will have to get one of my sisters to do the driving.

I am about over this "No driving" thing, but can't get into the neurologist until early February. It is driving me nuts!

McCain is vindictive and bore a grudge when Trump didn't call him a hero when prompted. I hope he finds peace in his last days, hopefully in AZ not DC. If he dies, the R gov will choose an R replacement who must then contend for the seat in the next general election (every 2 yrs.).

Talk about bullying....when will the Deplorables get some recognition for the daily beat down we get from Dems. & the MFM?

We're labeled every 'phobe' & 'ist' you can think of.
Dems have hired people to assault us, they've shot at us, & tackled us while mowing our lawns.
We can't even wear a red ball cap with 'Make America Great Again' on it or we will be harassed or beaten or thrown out of an establishment.

I don't want to hear about bullying anymore.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

narcisoyes,

My very first thought about that video was why the mother put it on the internet.

Both of my kids suffered from bullying for a short time in middle school. Both of them overcame it with encouragement from me, help of friends, and a talk with the teacher. The idea of putting a video of my son crying on the internet (although not in existence at the time) would have never been my choice, as it would have encouraged MORE bullying.

Catsmeat

"Forget stories of long, barefooted voyages through the snow just to get to school.
Later generations will reminisce of a time when, late in the twenties, they had to research health insurance plans all on their own."

For the record, not only did my father trudge through snow that was mounded as high as the telephone poles, but the path from his home to the school was uphill both ways.

RG if you are following: my condolences. From the photo Doris looks like exactly the sort of engaged, courageous, intelligent (and slightly mischievous) woman who could raise and inspire a guy like you. May she rest in peace.

RG, also, I'm so sorry about your mom. But I totally agree that you must be a credit to her. You'll meet again.

JiB (or anyone)--do you know Kipling's "The King" or John Greenleaf Whittier's "Snowbound" (both poems, the first just six stanzas, the other a longer narrative poem)? I am remembering your remembering Longfellow's poem about Pegasus, which was completely wonderful.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

JimNorCal,

You reminded me of an old family story.

When my grandparents moved to the Rio Grande Valley from Indiana, back in the 1920's, they lived on a ranch with my uncle. My grandmother (a city gal) was horrified that my father had to ride his pony to school. So uncivilized!

She got all of the locals together and they raised enough money to buy a school bus to pick up the kids. After about a week, my dad was riding to school on it and it broke down. Out in the middle of nowhere, Texas. I mean NOTHING for miles around.

My dad remembered sitting on the bus until long after dark, even though they had never even gotten to school, as the bus broke down in the morning.

Even in his old age he could remember the ranch parents showing up on horses, carrying torches,

The next day when my dad was ready to go to school, his pony was saddled and ready to go. No bus. His mother never said another word.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Trump continues to expose our betters as our worsers, in this case the bespectacled, bow tied, butthole George Will.

Catsmeat

Nytol--love your story of horses with torches, MM.

 narcisoyea

That was the kind of tripe I noticed while noting Kyle Smiths agita over the last Jedi.
Which is as with much of his work overwrought.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Catsmeat,

Got your email and replied. Glad you enjoyed the story!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Reading the critique of George Will's column, it occurs to me that we need some plain speaking to those folks like Will.

They are snobs. Pure and simple.

They don't like President Trump not because of his policies (most of which they have promoted over the years).

They dislike, or even hate him, because he doesn't speak like the "educated" set, because he identifies with the working class, because he likes glitzy decor and his wife is a former super-model.

I saw this in my family. My mother was a teacher. My dad was a furnace repair guy and sheet metal worker. My mother's co-workers turned their noses up at my dad, so that they quit going to school social events.

Well, people who do that are demonstrating their low class attitudes and lack of respect for the people who make the country work.

So, to hell with George Will.

Lovely Miss M,
I just sent CATSMEAT my email to share with you.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Thanks, GUS!

I had quite a few stored on my old account at Comcast.

I lost my password in a computer crash, and when I tried to reclaim it, they wouldn't give it to me unless I paid them $255.

I finally figured out that when I left my old home, I had forgotten to turn in the equipment from Comcast for the cable and internet. I was sort of upset, as you can imagine.

No way to get the equipment back as the house was foreclosed on and resold.

That's life. Anyway, if Catsmeat will forward email addresses, I will bookmark them and send an email back to you so that you nave my address for your files.

mad jack

nice takedown of that pompous ass, Will. clearly PDT is causing all the right people to lose their minds. it is just disturbing that it has come to this point. will used to sort of have a brief clue during the Reagan years. i just hope PDT can close the deal. the array of forces against him and the idea of freedom and liberty is daunting.

I read George Will's column earlier today.
He makes me sick. He's a Bill Kristol type.
HOITY TOITY.

This is from the Fox Congressional reporter:

Fox is told the text of the final version of the tax bill is locked in. This means that conferees will be signing the conference report (the final bill) tomorrow. Once they sign the conference report, there are no more changes that can be made. Everything is frozen in form.

It's hard to remember when Will wasn't an insufferable prig. I think his dorky outfits gave him an undeserved reputation as a serious thinker. Or maybe he really was but that was a long time ago and that reputation is now in tatters. He's been wrong about everything for at least ten years. Cubs fans should lose him.

Captain Hate

the array of forces against him and the idea of freedom and liberty is daunting.

That explains what this is all about, mad jack. It feels strange that it's come to this point so soon. Tammy Bruce said that DJT was only the first step in getting the country back to a sane footing but it feels a lot further along.

Reporter on Shannon Bream's Show says that they think the Inspector General report on the investigation into the FBI is supposed to take another 3 to 4 months. That's the report that Rosenstein and Wray and everyone else is using as their excuse to not do anything or not release any requested information. 3 to 4 monthsis the first I heard of how long that convenient excuse is going to continue.

I am not impressed, and it was good to hear Mukasey on Lou's show say that withholding info from Congress due to waiting on the IG's report is bogus, but oh well, what can Congress do except hold these "E'ffer's in contempt, which Eric Holder shows us is something that has no teeth any more.
