When I heard about the spending bill this morning on the shows I thought "so... I gotta eat a sh!t sandwich to get to the mid terms???"

Is that what it's about?

How does the calendar work out on that theory?

Thursday in Trump's America:
1.) HR McMaster out -- chief warmonger Bolton in (the guy that lied us into Iraq in first place) -- get ready for a war everyone!!!

2.) Trump top lawyer quits probe (lol -- no collusion!)

3.) DJIA down 700 points due to trade war fears

4.) No one in charge at State Dept today....


good job boomer's -- you literally will be remebered as America's worst generation ever.

I shaved mine last year and am going to keep my upper lip area naked, MM.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Thomas Collins,

My dad gad a mustache till the day he dies, so I am sort of partial to the,.

However, I don't castigate people who don't like them or don't have them. It's simply a matter of taste.

Extraneus

The former jor is now reduced to making up stupid variants on hir handle just to not be blocked on xyr first post.

Thomas Collins

My favorite comment, MM, from a friend who saw me for the first time without one was, "You look less evil now." Apparently she still thinks I look evil. There were also people who knew something was different, but couldn't figure out whether I had shaved my mustache or my beard. That was odd, because I never had a beard. My wife and kids had never seen me without a mustache.

Rocco

I've had my moustache for 45 years and to be honest, I don't like Bolton's. It's too messy and needs a trim IMO. I can't stand it when I can feel mine touch my upper lip so I keep it trimmed.

And Citigroup's scandals are longer than Bolton's moustache!

j0r_has_m0re

Extaneus: facts are painful I know -- its hard to believe that's all in day.

And you're right -- there's actually more, I forgot

Miss Marple the Deplorable

One other thing:

my ex-husband shaved off his mustache because "he thought it made him look younger" for interviews and such.

Well, it didn't because as we age our upper lips get longer, and his was especially long and he did not look good.

I should have taken it as a sign.

I feel so sorry for the bomber's parents.

Why? Did they display remorse about what their son did? Did they suspect their son was doing it and notify authorities?

Wouldn't your sympathy be better placed with their son's victims? What am I missing?

I shared 600 pages tonight. I’m done tweeting them for the evening. If they insist on voting, I will vote no because it spends to much and there’s just too little time to read the bill and let everyone know what’s actually in it.

Thanks for sticking with me.

Speaking of guns...I just caught up with news from Maine and learned that there is a "controversy" in northern Maine. The owner of MACS Trading Post on Houlton,Maine will not apologize for "supporting the community and our constitutional rights to bear arms." Michelle Crane,the owner of the business, is selling raffle tickets for $5 each to raise money for the Hodgdon Middle/High School Project graduation party. The tickets are being sold for a chance to win a Smith and Wesson SD9 9mm handgun. The drawing is Saturday. The winner will be subject to the usual requirements,background check,etc. Crane has donated guns to support many other community causes. The Portland TV station (WGME) asked viewers if this was appropriate,in light of recent events. Why does the Portland media care about a small town in northern Maine? It is laughable. Michelle Crane said that a man came in and bought 500 tickets. Two other men drove up I-95 for 200 miles to buy tickets. She said the sale of raffle tickets has increased,in fact someone commented,thanks for the advertisement,WGME!

The perfect Osso Buco is where the butcher presents it pre-stringed and you can pat it dry, season it heavily with salt and pepper, braise it in the dutch oven for each side, set aside. Then cook up the gemolata of carrots, onions, celery and bouquet garni. Add dry white wine, chicken stock, bring to a boil and let it simmer for 1.1/2 hours.

I like to server on a bed of carbonata but didn't have time for just Frederick and I, so no pasta.

Mrs. JiB is doing all the heaving lifting in the renovation of our house in Florida. She gets the better weather but Frederick and I get the best of mu cooking. Off to Belgium next week for Easter.

narcisocenfl

Well you answer your own question, tk, he couldn't be portrayed on the downlow,

Porchlight

Did they display remorse about what their son did? Did they suspect their son was doing it and notify authorities?

Yes. And no.

It's not that I don't feel sorry for the victims' families. It's just that I think being the parent of the perp is a special kind of hell. Your kid is dead, he did horrible things for which there is no atonement possible, and you'll never know why or where you went wrong. If you are a Christian, as these parents are, you get the extra torture of being certain his soul is damned to eternal hell.

God forbid I am ever forced to choose, I would choose to be a victim's parent. Every time.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

On the spending and the debt and entitlements like Medicare etc I find it very relaxing to just accept reality.
We are in Herb Stein territory; they will spend and spend and spend until they can't.
Mathematics will do what political will cannot.
Will it create great hardships? Sure, but it's not like nobody knew. The vast majority of people think the government spends way too much money, except on them. So the vast majority are going to get what they wanted and deserve.

What Porch said. There were no signs that we know of, of the bombers issues, which were apparently all personal. I assume we will find out.

Captain Hate

It's just that I think being the parent of the perp is a special kind of hell.

Some parents are more sympathetic than others. Jared Laughner's parents, or grandparents, enabled his nuttery, kept him from dealing with the consequences of it and imo were complicit in his crimes. The bomber was 23 and obviously an adult. I don't know if he was estranged from his parents but if he was my son and bombs were going off, I'd make it a point to find out what he's been up to. My youngest daughter is 38 and the day I stop feeling responsible for her older sister and her is when the lights go out.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I am glad to see Kevin Williamson exposed.

I quit following him over a year ago, maybe closer to two, because of his vile comments. I think it was close to the time I dropped Rick Wilson.

I don't disagree, Cap'n. Good point about Laughner. Of course one feels responsible. That is why I sympathize. Reading the parents' statement, they are deeply shocked but not taking a "he dindunuffin" position.

They will bear this guilt forever. Perhaps they deserve to, we can't know, but they don't seem to be attempting to shift blame.

Sorry, take out the period, the good news is threatconnect got 16 million in capitalization by December 2016, got an attaboy from crowdstrike fan gyrl Ellen nakashima a year earlier.

I'm wondering which of the PARKLAND traveling dingleberries, will be the first to end up dead of an overdose, arrested, or will appear in a pRon flick.

Captain Hate

I don't know, Porch; maybe they did the best they could. Nature versus nurture; who can tell. I've known of an attorney in TC's old firm whose son surely murdered a girl in his class and the father kept him from being charged. I'm sure the parents of the bomber are more sympathetic than him but they're all points on a long line ranging from "there was nothing more they could have done" to "they were terrible parents and helped cause this".

Porchlight

Yes, Cap'n, it is a long line.

Janeprobably about 10 minutes after getting there

What has Kevin been "exposed" as MM?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate, Porchlight,

I am reminded of how my son kept his alcoholism from me even being in the next bedroom. I didn't find out until he was arrested for the DUI and in jail, He was very good at hiding it.

The son lived with roommates and not in his parents' home. If he only saw the parents once or twice a week, it would have been easy for him to hide his mental deterioration.

I feel sorry for the parents as well

I still think they should look at his brain, to see if there was a tumor or something.

Captain Hate

Good points, Miss Marple.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jane,

By moving to the Atlantic, he is supporting the left as opposed to the right, which I have felt he was doing for a long time.

His hatred for Trump, his disdain for Trump supporters, his general snobbishness towards those who don't agree with him, is now quite apparent.

He might have been quite charming if you met him in person. It doesn't negate what he has written and whom he has backed, and his move to The Atlantic proves my suspicions correct.

Bela1

IDK Gus, IDK but I'd like to whack that saucy whacker Hogg in the noggin. This is what can happen if you let your kid hang out with the likes of Dan Rather. It could take years to deprogram that gullible little twit.

Good news about Bolton's appointment! Maybe it'll shut some Dems up. Especially a few from MA. Many DEMs should rot in hell for bringing us in to more than one loody war... before intentionally stabbing our troops in the back to score some cheap political points. I'm just saying...

The best Osso Buco I ever had was in Antwerp.

Beer was pretty good that night too. Belgians know what they're doing in the brew house.

Remember driving into Brussels and passing a brewery with these stunning copper kettles you could see through the front windows. Any guess who the brewer was?
