Hawaii. Trump’s fault.

James D.

The only one Williams has to blame is herself. Her agent negotiated a bad contract, and she signed it.

If Wahlberg is handing over his own money because one of is colleagues has a worse agent than him, he’s dumber than I thought he was.

Why don’t I have any friends or coworkers that dumb?

Neo

Trey Gowdy, a Republican, tendered his resignation Jan. 11 from the powerful ethics committee. His new position as Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee prompted the resignation.

I am calling Bullshit on Moby's assertions. If even half true, any US Attorney worth his salt would call him into his office and demand he give up the active and retired agents. I am getting tired that sedition seems to be the recipe of the year like seafood lasagna or roast duck.

Its not. Its worse than treason in my opinion. Its one thing to give your enemy a map or code because in sedition you are the enemy inside.

JNC and rocco, game was played in 1918. How convenient.

Hawaii. Trump’s fault.

If it hadn’t been for Trump, most Hawaiians would have completely ignored the alert

Well they at least had a chance to kiss their backsides goodbye. And now they've had some practice for the real thing.

henry,

We do. Nothing.

Frederick is hell bent on building himself up for Lacrosse this spring and Football later on. So, in the downstairs fitness area I had set up we have now installed a weight rack complete with pull up bar, 12 catch positions and 2 x 45lb. bars plus over 550# in free weights.

It complements my TRX, bike, rowing machine, step, jump box and bands. Only problem was I had to fold up my massage table which I used to do a lot stretches and therapy. Sigh!

Go get 'em big boy!

Clarice Feldman

She needs a new lawyer and agent.

Catsmeat

JiB, you know I have a 15-year-old too (Nick) who is also mighty mighty about weight training (done in the school gym after or before school every afternoon, alternating upper and lower stuff). It is certainly nice to have brawn about the house, as, say, when in a couple of months I want overweening hostas dug up...

Clarice Feldman

If those boys need to do more heavy lifting, pls give them my number.

Jack is Back!

catsmeat,

Reason I did it is that if he stays after at school I have a 1 hour round trip to go get him since we don't have a late bus. He can have coach give his exercises at PE and then he can do them at home.

I think I started at his age also since it was my JV year and went to V almost right away because of my size. It can make a big difference in your fitness, agility and strength.

clara

JUB, I have three grandsons ages 16 and two 18 who are really into the weight lifting done for football and lacrosse at school in the morning before school starts. They look great and it has certainly kept them away from a lot of carousing after school.

DebinGA

Our just turned 13 yo grandson began gymnastics lessons at age 11 and 1/2, which is very, very late. He's still passionate about it, doing 4 days a weeks 3 hrs. each day at Cartersville Gymastics, home to the highest rated Jr Olympian in the country - Brody Malone. Brody will be part of Stanford's top rated team next year. The gym owners/coaches are products of the highly successful Soviet system, and they've gotten similarly phenomenal results here.

Texas Liberty Gal

My hubby and I just got home from watching one of the best movies I've ever seen! The Greatest Showman. Fantastic soundtrack and dance numbers, not to mention a wonderful story. I've already downloaded the soundtrack and will sneak out next week to watch it again. Can't say enough good things about it. Hugh Jackman is amazing. So glad we got to take our grandchildren to a PT Barnum Circus before it was shut down.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Texas Liberty Gal,

What? Hollywood made a wholesome and entertaining movie?

I guess word will have to travel personally, since I have never heard of it. Thanks for the heads up!

Texas Liberty Gal

MM - you will love it!!! Very wholesome!!! Definitely a must see movie. Take your daughter - I'm sure she will love it too!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

TLG,

You bet we will go see it! Here is the trailer, which I just found:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXCTMGYUg9A

Catsmeat

The high school is a ten-minute walk, two-minute drive, so the school gym works fine (the program takes all this very seriously and carefully, so I figure he's okay). He does need back rubs a lot, I admit, but I'm good at them. Learned from a completely nutso but kind Rolfer as a teenager (when I was a camp counselor). Same camp--the director, very tight-would loony, cracked. The crack was evident when she was found in the director's office carefully mayonnaising her hand, as if she were preparing a sandwich for a child's lunch box. White coat time, poor lady. Hope she got better.

Catsmeat

tight-wound, that is!

So much Fake News is being reported. They don’t even try to get it right, or correct it when they are wrong. They promote the Fake Book of a mentally deranged author, who knowingly writes false information. The Mainstream Media is crazed that WE won the election!

Texas Liberty Gal

mm - the other thing that really impressed us is that just before the movie starred Hugh Jackman and one of the other actors thanked us for coming to watch their movie. How often does someone from Hollywood thank those of us who pay to see their movies? Can't remember that ever happening before.

GUS

So Wahlberg thinks actors with TALENT, should get paid less than him???
A cursory look shows Mz.Williams sans clothing.
Did she get extra for looking nicer than Okrah.

Liberals are retarded, Wahlberg is a virtue signalling pig.

-peter

My younger son abhorred exercise for years and we gave him a pass on it, then one day he decided he didn't like the shape he was in, so he started his own running and fitness program, tons of pushups, PX-90 and running every day, went from the doughboy look to lean clean running machine.

Extraneus

Anyone want to guess the lame phrase that Insty will use on his open thread tonight? I think I'll go with:

OPEN THREAD: Cause you know you have things to say.

Texas Liberty Gal

I just don't get the constrernation people have with Instys phrases for his open threads. Life is to short etc etc

maryrose

I make more than 80 dollars a day as a substitute teacher.
These ZHolktwoid women sign contracts so they know what the pay is going to be.
Moaning about it afterward is just proof that they aren’t very good business women.
At least get a producing credit or a percentage of the profits.

maryrose

TLG:
Amen!
Thanks for the movie tip.
So sorry to hear about the dog’s illness.
They really become a family member.

maryrose

At a preview of a Reese Witherspoon movie there was a clip where she thanked the audience.
Women can empower themselves if they save their money and go behind the camera.
Many are more than just a pretty face.Hey I am on topic, who needs Insty.

Texas Liberty Gal

maryrose - "I make more than 80 dollars a day as a substitute teacher." I only make $75 a day but its a private Lutheran school so I'm glad to see the compensation is somewhat close. I only do it for grades K-3. Life is too short to tussle with older kids.

Catsmeat

TLG, I will go see Hugh Jackman, then, and thank you for the tip, and I too am sorry the littlies today won't ever see such a grand sight as I saw many a time.

You should know that the thing about Insty's prompts is just a silly game, not a real criticism--but how many lame ways can one ask others to comment? Implicitly, the best way was implicit, as with a mere laconic "Comments" tab...

Texas Liberty Gal

And thanks maryrose for your comments about our son's dog. He put up a collage of pictures on FB of their dog with his wife and their children. As he said, Tag was a dog who never grew out of the puppy stage.

Man Tran

Finally caught up on reading a Spengler essay from a week or so ago that Iggy probably linked. Wow! Them Persians is toast!

Before we wax too eloquent about the democratic aspirations of the great Iranian people, we should keep in the mind that the most probable scenario for Iran under any likely regime is a sickening spiral into poverty and depopulation. Iran has the fastest-aging population of any country in the world, indeed, the fast-aging population of any country in history. It has the highest rate of venereal disease infection and the highest rate of infertility of any country in the world. It has a youth unemployment rate of 35% (adjusted for warehousing young people in state-run diploma mills). And worst of all, it has run out of water.

I'm surprised no one has commented on that!

Texas Liberty Gal

Catsmeat - I get kind of a kick out of the complaints about Insty's threads. The only comment threads I've ever enjoyed is those here. I look forwad to your thoughts about The Greatest Showman. You're in for a real treat!!

It's Trump's fault, MT.

Feinstein Confirms Fusion GPS Lawyers Asked For Release Of Testimony Transcript

Texas Liberty Gal

While reading several commenters here discuss books they've enjoyed or are reading spurred me to look at my Amazon list of books I've downloaded. And what did I find but a Virgil Flowers Book #7 that I downloaded in 2013 but had never read for some reason. Feel like I've struck gold. Love the Flowers & Davenport books by John Sanford.

Catsmeat

The Horde points out that while the alarm crisis could have been avoided by throwing a virgin into a Hawaiian volcano, there wasn't enough time to go out of state to get one. Hummmph...

sbw

So Feinstein was “pressured”?

Sounds more like Feinstein “colluded”.

I thought after '09 the half black, half white king could do anything he wanted in chess government.

Hi Everyone.... it's over. Prolonged by this nasty flu. Opioid free and pain free. Took awhile but i am a free man.

Have barely kept up. And i'm so behind with development plans it may be awhile before i can comment.

But something tells me these MFM aholes never sleep.

It's a new world !

janet,

Maddy of Prague doesn't count. She was/is a dem.

Maybe she should read "The Rape of Serbia" before she says "get out" again.

henry

Good news Kevlar!

 narcisoyea

That's very cobvolutrex maryrose.

The ones who put this grishenko narrative weren't very creative if youve read Fleming ludlum even Ted bell, if you're going to
provoke a confrontation, you need to take pieces off the board, erovikin was a good first gambit but it would have happened before the dossier was released.

lyle

Way to go, kev.

sbw

It's a new world !

... and Kev is part of it. Thank you!

jimmyk

From what I understand, kids who are still growing should be careful with weight-lifting.

I suppose everyone should be careful, but you know what I mean.:)

I have been in the Philly stadium twice including this December for The Game but didn't realize they don't have Sky Boxes or Luxury Boxes. They are all outside and exposed to the weather.

Wonderful news Kiev

Anyways the showing of from Russia with love reminded me, also an ludlum tale the matarese circle, an outside factions goes after both parties.

GUS

So FUSION GPS LAWYERS wanted the TESTIMONY RELEASED???

So fucking what???

Just fucking IMAGINE Ron Johnson of Wisconsin did this.

Captain Hate

Why does everyone hate the Serbs? The only wars I've ever seen the MFM fluffing everyone to prosecute were against the Serbs in Bosnia and Kosovo. Both of them demonstrated the uselessness of the UN and every reported "atrocity" was grossly overstated. And Slick demonstrated his Commander in Chief chops by blowing up the Chinese embassy in Belgrade with a double aught smart missile which to me defined the non whorehound aspect of his Presidency.

Frankly I'd trade away those fuckheads in Hawaii for Serbia immediately.

Extraneus

Certain lameness must be called out, TLG. I'm only following rules.

I asked the other day who else had the same reaction as I do and I think only Catsmeat and Jane did, so I realize there's a selective audience on the topic.

Jack is Back!

Excellent Kev. Now start eating more spinach:)

jimmyk,

Unsupervised or unscheduled lifting is an issue for growing kids but not if its planned by trainers and the lifter keeps to a schedule. His performance in jumping, running, strength and stamina has improved every week.

Captain Hate

Congrats, KK.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Congratulations, Kev! I am so happy for you!

Janet 🚬

Why does everyone hate the Serbs?

Yeah...I've wondered that too.

They don't like Nazis or Muzzies. That is a problem left and right.

Great news, kev.

Even Glen Greenwald was still flogging the sh*thole story as though it's an established fact, despite the lack of corroboration, and denials by others who were there. Plus the fact the Durbin is a known douchebag.

I am getting tired of waiting for the hammer to drop on the FBI and other criminals from Zippy's administration. If we can't see perp walks, at least let's have a special counsel.

Rocco

Great news Kev, The Comeback Kid! It's going to be a great week. We'll probably be hearing a lot about U1 at long last. Here's a refresher.

The argument for the war on Serbia was carried out in large part in the new York review by Misha glenny a middling translator of Russian novels subsequently he wrote this treatise on the various mobs Indian Russian et al, part of which became this bbc series:

Captain Hate

I know a guy who worked for NSA and was turned down by the CIA for whatever reason. He was very smart and had very unusual social skills (NSA, what are the chances?). The only reason I knew him was my last Airedale, Maggie, who hated most other dogs oddly tolerated his pack of those weird little dachshund/chihuahua dogs who exploded in manic explosive barks at every other dog but her.

Catsmeat

KK, you should be so very proud of yourself! Many congratulations--that can't have been easy.

CH, thanks! If I can't be an admiral in the Nebraska Navy, being an 'ette will have to do in its stead! Never post there but read almost everything--time permitting--

Feel free to watch the game and hope for a Pst’s Victory.
No judgment here.I would love for Atlanta or the Vikings to win just to make it less predictable.
Don’t want the Steelers or or Patriots.
Tennessee Titans in the Super Bowl would be new and different.

Captain Hate

The FBI has definitely screwed the pooch on the Vegas shooting. At this stage I'm willing to believe anything that implicates them, particularly that Paddock was one of their assets who they completely lost control of.

Extraneus

I interviewed for them, too, btw, after getting a graduate degree, but after all the questions they asked me they told me they'd call me for a 2nd interview to Langley and ask the same exact questions, only with a lie detector.

"Have you ever tried marijuana?"

"Have you ever had sex with more than one person at the same time?"

"Have you ever acted as a mercenary soldier in another country?"

I didn't reply to their invitation.

maryrose

Scratch that — Atlanta is out and Phillies are in.
I contend Southernteams can’t play in the bitter cold of the North.
Hence the challenge for Tennessee.
