Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Willowed or something;

The left is like my schizophrenic son; at some level they know they're nuts but they just can't help themselves. Schizophrenics hallucinate, progs hate.
When you get right down to it, the ubiquitous prog excuse for the universal failure of socialism "it's never really been tried" is an almost perfect paraphrase of Einstein's apocryphal definition of insanity, the only difference is progs think we're evil idiots and enemies of all that is good for not expecting a different result next time, as they do.
They can be fairly cordial and normal in their personal relationships but their ideology turns everyone outside their immediate orbit into evil and/or idiotic monsters.
Our own pathetic, demented troll being an excellent case study.

--I'll settle for believing the FBI already had concerns and the dossier added to them.--

Yeah, they had concerns Trump might win and so they launched a secret campaign to prevent that.

--Since both were involved with probing the Russian mob, large parts of the story ring true.--

Nothing rings true about these crooks.

Willowed:

We know that every disparaging word was meant for Trump supporters as much as it was meant for him.

Exactly, and they're so dense that they think we don't know this.

Congratulations on that tribute from your former student. Higher praise is difficult to imagine.

My guess is that as the backlash from Wellstone II mounts, this article willl be disappeared.

They are trying this morning (at least the more astute libs are trying) to pretend that because Trump's name wasn't mentioned, he wasn't criticized.

Out here in the real world, we aren't stupid. What that funeral did is demonstrate how it really is, as George Carlin said, "a big club and you ain't in it."

Huma Abedin was invited and President Trump and Sarah Palin weren't. There is a message there, and I don't like it one bit.

Kevlar Kid

we don't get NBC so we had Paw out in Virginia texting updates re ND-MICH. he said we looked strong. MICH "didn't come ready to play---flashes of brilliance but a lot of mental errors."

Sign of an emotionally volatile Harbaugh team. watching Harbaugh botch the Super Bowl against the Ravens, and giving Colin KipperSnack too much money for too little reason, ditching Alex Smith after treating him like a son (and getting one helluva season out of Smith)....watching Harbaugh go through all of that mess as a Niner head coach--- he left me with no other conclusion that he's a position coach who promoted himself to head coaching jobs with his jewel-in-the-crown job circling the drain.

last nite's game with ND was a must win. the entire season is all uphill now for his emotional players. just glad it's them and not the Irish--- who just went out and won the game that needed winnin'. Coach Kelly's life is just that much easier given the alumni pressure that comes from LOSING the opener, one-point underdog or not.

TouchDown Jesus is grinnin' this morning.

I wonder, will history look back at this 'funeral' as the last great event of the old elite class?

As Barbara Tuchman regarded the funeral of Edward VII of the UK in 1910. It was attended by every important figure of European aristocracy, with pomp and pageantry never again seen.

Janet 🚬

So Dems are trying to get traction over Trump not going to a funeral he wasn't invited to?

How weird is that?

....& this from the party that bragged about its members NOT going to the inauguration of the new POTUS.

Jack is Back!

How appropriate that a guy who finished at the bottom of his Navy class, crashed two planes, was present at the Forrestal FUBAR, and got shot down by the NVm, planned a detailed funeral in which the Uniparty, globalist elite died from an over abundance of confidence and criticism.

Its called "unconscious serendipity".

My book of etiquette is back in town, so I'm a bit uncertain about Maverick Funeral protocol. Is the conga line done on the fifth day of the festivities or the fourth? Hope I didn't miss it!!

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--How long did it take you to accept your sons diagnosis, Ignatz?....--

To be accurate he is my step-son, but it took about two seconds. Since he had, among other things, previously told me, as we rode along in my pickup, what people in oncoming cars were thinking, which when he told me what it was, was not even actual words. He then interpreted that salad talk for me.
So, the official diagnosis wasn't exactly a surprise.

A more cogent question is why you so assiduously resist your own diagnosis?

This was to be no mere laying to rest of a Washington wise man, nor just another funeral of an elder statesman whose passing would be marked by flowery words about the end of an era. It was a meeting of the Resistance, under vaulted ceilings and stained-glass windows.

In what fantasy world did anyone, EVER, refer to McCain as "wise"?

Also from mm's link is the reference to DJT as "the crude interloper". When people's reaction to your funeral is to think someone needs to nuke dc while both houses are in session something is seriously wrong.

Frau:

our collective names like "Psychosa" "Canasta" "Tawny Port" "Helen Earth" "Garlic Breath" .... all reflected our boyish resentments of larger than life figures who dominated life for 9 months of the year for 8 years.

i make fun of the nuns who were my teachers for 6 out of my 8 years in Catholic elementary school. had lay teachers in 2 and 6th grades. but those were the days when even the principal was a nun and the parish had 23 nuns from newbie to retirees (from Ireland even!) living in the convent on school grounds.

their garbs, as you well know, back pre-Vatican II were incredibly dominating from a visual perspective of a kid.

but they taught the kids and directed the charitable works of the parish. the priests controlled the collection plate, drank like fish, and got invited out to dinner and seated in front of the family picture windows for all the neighbors to see. being part of a parish was a big deal.

the nuns tirelessly taught the catechism, the Palmer handwriting method (daily!), the grammar, phonics, and the excruciating sentence diagramming.

they made history class fun (4th grade on) allowing us to give stand up presentations on topics first before they'd go into the set curricular treatments of subject matter--- which was hilarious by contrast with our hamfisted bombastics.

instilled in me, anyway, that there are more than one way to look at history---even if it is a child's ludicrous conclusions about the obvious.

taught us well. they stopped using the big rulers on our knuckles by the time i was in 5th grade. but the "write repetitively" on the blackboard until our legs gave out was in full swing when i graduated. they put the sidewall chalkboard to good use....it had at least 3 students on it daily executing some penalty for crimes unbecoming.

some of it was hilarious. "i will not cross my eyes at Karen S. when she makes me mad."

they made some kids cry and they scarred a few of my lifelong buddies with their ability to scorn with sarcasm--- forecasting eternity in hell for knocking the sandwich of one of their pet students onto the gritty asphalt during lunch time.

at one point, Paw had 4 of his six kids enrolled there. one of us had already gone on to high school at "sin city" (the local public high school). Paw was forking out a husky $55 a month at the peak of our attendance.

fond memories and a near perfect handwriting and print script to this day.

education of a lifetime. :D

About Surber's "Trump Schadenfreude list.

It is fun to think about it as a list, but looking at the thousands of people in Hollywood and the MSM with Trump Derangement Syndrome, coupled with their overall lack of judgement and impulse control, the list is more a confirmation of probability than a curse.

Thomas Collins

The article TM quoted provides a preview of how Oligarch Media will handle any declassification of intelligence by Trump that evidences the ongoing coup. There will be rationalizations that will be accepted by about half the country. My hope is that there will be enough persuadables who will see through Oligarch Media and will tip a couple of dozen House seats and a few Senate seats away from the Ocasio (my new name for Democrat) Party.

I wonder, will history look back at this 'funeral' as the last great event of the old elite class?

If there is any justice they will, art.

Again I have to marvel at the total perfection of the spectacle. Multiple funerals, so many that even the media can't keep them straight, the parading of the casket here and there and yon, Meghan's staged grief over the casket and equally staged Trump trashing, the Bushes and Obamas and Clintons laughing it up, and the damn thing still isn't over yet.

Thank God Trump and Palin were disinvited. Talk about a badge of honor.

McCain couldn't have possibly planned it any better.

boatbuilder

"To be fair, there is no way the FBI responded exclusively to the dossier by formally opening an investigation one day later."

Isn't is just a wee bit possible that "the dossier" was ordered up to justify putting "the insurance policy" into effect?

And never mind the obvious--if Trump was "colluding" with the Russians George Papadopoulos would have no reason to get excited about the Russians allegedly having Hilary's e-mails.

I awoke this morning to my local rag, the Hartford Courant, top of the front page all about how the McCain funeral celebrated a man renowned for civility, bipartisanship and class, and mourning the loss of such things due entirely to Donald Trump. Then on the front of the editorial section another phony RINO proclaiming that he was a "lifelong Republican" who was leaving the party for a short and very insubstantial list of Democratic talking points, including the whopper that the economy is in great shape entirely because Barack Obama set it up for his successor (he was apparently just getting around to tax cuts and repatriation of offshore corporate cash, he just didn't have time for it during the eight years he was in office). Inside, a Bill Press op-ed (I know...) all about what a great guy John McCain was and how crude and awful Donald Trump is, including the news that Trump didn't attend McCain's funeral (no, really) without any explanation as to why, and lauding McCain for saying that "the difference between a caucus and a cactus is that on a cactus the pricks are on the outside." Pure civility and class! (Picture the MSM reaction if DJT said that.)

For some reason Paul Simon's "Love Me Like A Rock" popped into my head:

i hear you on that, narc. there were some legendary Jesuit faculty at area boys high schools here in the Bay Area. they ran some pretty effective academic programs. like any human organization, the higher up you go the worse it gets. the St Peter Principle? :D

at one point, Maw and Paw were considering boarding me out for high school at one or the other. i threatened to run away if they decided that.

so the compromise was i'd agree to go to a commuter all-boy high school in the area. the one i chose was all-boy when i was in 7th grade. but in the middle of 8th grade it went co-ed. dodged a bullet! by then it was all about the chicas.

I was in radio hell as Stairway to Heaven was on one station and Ramble On the other. I even retreated to homo show tunes for relief before scurrying back almost immediately.

Thank God Van Halen's Beautiful Girl came on to cleanse the auditory palate. Speaking of which, what's everybody's favorite Van Halen song and album? I was late to the dance on those guys but Eddie's guitar playing overcame the excesses of Roth.

Arrogance is a false confidence

In their telling, she used gun rights — Ms. Butina had started a pro-gun group in Russia — to gain a toehold in American conservative circles, and then struck up a romance with a far older Republican operative to open doors further. She has denied the allegations.

Ms. Butina’s efforts to deal in Russian jet fuel, detailed in hundreds of pages of previously unreported emails, were notable not just for their whiff of foreign intrigue but for who they involved: David Keene, a former president of the National Rifle Association and a prominent leader of the conservative movement, who has advised Republican candidates from Ronald Reagan to Mitt Romney. They also involved Mr. Keene’s wife, Donna, a well-connected Washington lobbyist, and Ms. Butina’s boyfriend, Paul Erickson, who ran Patrick J. Buchanan’s 1992 presidential campaign and who moved in rarefied conservative circles despite allegations of fraud in three states.

You have 3 free articles remaining.

Subscribe to The Times
Their attempt to secure the fuel deal illustrates a reality that investigators have had to navigate in bringing a federal case against Ms. Butina. During her time in the United States, she surrounded herself not only with high-profile American conservatives but also with dubious characters who seemed bent on making a fast buck — and it was not always easy to tell one from the other.

In the emails, and in interviews with people involved in the fuel negotiations, Ms. Butina seems as naïve as she is cunning. She had no experience in the oil business, yet jumped into a scheme that hinged entirely on her securing a supply of huge amounts of jet fuel — nearly double what all of Russia’s refineries export in a month..

Arrogance is a false confidence

Schizophrenia is yet another reality subset Monomaniacs have not experienced. Ignatz.

CH, maryrose, Uncle Tom's Cabin is indeed badly written--I don't think there's any question and even Stowe scholars don't make claims for her as a stylist. The book was an international bestseller but that doesn't tell you anything--it was just the right book for the right time. The Spanish tried to ban it because of their West Indies possessions, but it was a bestseller in Madrid too.
