Iirc we ended with Speaker now-known pervert Dennis Hastert 1) because Majority Whip Tom Delay was sabotaged and 2) consensus Speaker candidate Livingston of (LA) was outed by Larry Flynt just before the vote as an adulterer. Tom Delay was the type of take no prisoners Speaker we've needed but never got since Newt. These blue state Rs are incapable of playing hardball imo.

Jeff Dobbs

Why else would we spend so much time typing to strangers?

Nope. You don't understand. I've met more than two dozen JOMers, and another dozen JOM family members.

Not strangers. I love these people.

And yet I hate them. Most of them, anyway. Not the ones who know I still love them. They know who they are.

Quick (not so quick) story....

Friday night I went to my pool hall after work. Like most nights I played by myself, practicing for hours on end. Then toward the end of the night, a couple comes up and starts chatting. Whatever, sure, I'll play the dude a few games.

The girl was Chatty Cathy like you've never seen. Wouldn't shut up. So we ended up talking about other pool halls in town. We got to Gate City - the place I play Saturday tournaments (or used to, it's been a while) - and she made the statement that they let people smoke there.

Wait a second. This is the place I mentioned here years ago that battled the state of NC on smoking. The owner allowed smoking while the case was going on, subject to daily fines for doing so. He lost the case in the NC supreme court and decided it was not in his financial interest to pursue it to federal court. That was ~3 years ago.

But this girl wouldn't believe me. And like an idiot, I didn't just smile and say "that's nice" - and kept arguing.

Next thing I know she whips out her phone and calls Gate City. She's arguing with the bartender about their smoking policy and asks to speak to "a manager".

And that's how I ended up on the phone with Gate City owner Don at 1 in the morning apologizing for wasting his time.

The only consolation? This girl kept referring to me as "this pool pro who says...." in her conversations with the bartender at Gate City.

Pro? Hahahahahaa, as if...

Still, I emailed Don this morning to apologize for that call. He got a big kick out of it, especially the idea that she thought I was a pro.

I still hate most everyone here.

In addition when hostility is pointed out by another poster the originator completely denies doing it

Tell me about it.

Remember "bye, bye Piyush?"

Beasts of England

I can't believe that they told Dustin about a potential penalty when he had only four holes to play, JiB. Amateur hour. If he had lost - again - he had a good insanity defense for a USGA murder or three. ;)

JMHanes

"....has elon musk had a concussion recently?"

LOLOL. You have a wicked sense of humor, buccaneer!

Beasts of England

It's the passive-aggressive Olympics, TK. Beats all I've ever seen. Yet the same people say that things have changed here at JOM. My ironyometer is starting to hate this place. :)

GUS

Well I've added a person to scroll past to my list.
And why is it whenever I see the Theo post, I imagine his last name is Massengil??

buccaneer morgan

so do they bother with any facts anymore, rhetorical.

The reason I comment here? Because Jeff Dobbs hates me.

Beasts of England

I found the NBA game on the boat. I didn't know they did radio broadcasts that weren't on a premium channel like SiriusXM...

Jack is Back!

BoE,

Actually, on the 12oth hole - 6 to play - then they went and told everyone in the field that he may have a potential penalty to be decided later. They are truly anal and just like the GOPe. There is no member of the USGA board from a Muni or daily fee course. Never has been, never will be. And most of them are lawyers with litigation practices. What's that tell you?

I have to be careful since they are here at Shinnecock in 2018 and I want to be able to host a contender in the home and if they don't make the cut get their family passes:) Lots of bennies with those. Including the player's lounge and fee food and booze.

lyle

If that isn't powerful motivation I don't know what is. 😎

Beasts of England

I've known a few of those 'hot shots', JiB. You nailed it by calling them the GOPe. Hope you have room for two guests in 2018. ;)

sbw

I think my point was that any blog entry can tick someone else off inadvertently or on purpose, but that life goes on.

As my son’s friend said in the car at 9 years old:

”But what does it matter?”

The genius of this crew is to roll on and focus.

Some don’t. Some can’t. The rest of us try. Be nice if we all could.

P.S. That is not the same as saying [crying] “Leave Brittany alone.”

JMHanes

buccaneer:

What, exactly, do you suppose tyring to "disarm a police officer" consists of? Sounds sorta like they don't want to say he made a grab for the cop's gun, doesn't it?

lyle

I'm having a bottle of JM Boillot '14 Montagnie with grilled salmon and watch The Finals not to be confused with the finals.

GUS

Hello Porchlight, Maryrose is certainly entitled to her opinion, and generally she is quite positive and hopeful. I do not agree with her much recently, but she is a nice person and a thoughtful poster for THE MOST PART.

Theo is a clown.

There is one other post who has been here today, who comes around, points fingers, shits on the blog then leaves.

lyle

And apparently I can't conjugate verbs...

buccaneer morgan

hey I didn't write the headline, at least is not a pluperfect tense,

Beasts US OPEN is right here where I live next year. I even know the guy who built the course.

I drove past ERIN HILLS last evening.

Beasts,

6 bedrooms. One for the golfer, one for the caddy. Then we need one, and Frederick. Leaves the Studio on the 3rd floor and the bedroom there with 2 beds. Take your pick. No elevator. Have to huff it.

But really think about it. Did they not act like the GOPe with tha pat idiotic decision to tell him on the 12th hole or Trump in Nevada:) Then go and tell Jeb!, Marco and Ted that Donald has some questionable signatures on his application for the primary but we are checking. 3 days to go!

Go to their website and read the bios of the Executive Committee. Then tell me what party they remind you of:)

maryrose

"Enough is Enough"
An exact quote.
"But what does it mean" she asked not comprehending very well.
From now on Beasts and Lyle are newly named
Frick and Frack

That Sig Sauer MPX story only referred to one unusual version of it with a very short barrel and a compensator being counted for the full 16 inches.
The standard MPX has a legal barrel and is not opposed by ATF.

Gus
As this is a free blog that is that poster's right.Thank you for positive comments.
I am a nice person with nice people.
But don't mistake me for a pushover.
Two years in an orphanage taught me that.

buccaneer morgan

I find that story, looking around, and the atf was in their best squirrel mode, btw there's a claim it shoots 45 rounds a minute?

Gentlejim

JMHanes,
I'm guessing that he was trying to take the officers firearm, but he could've been trying to actually lop off an arm. 😜

GUS

Maryrose, Theo does not approve of Frick and Frack. That would be name calling.
I would NEVER consider you a push over. You are able.

I love maryrose but I think she is wrong about Ryan and the GOPe leadership. They have proven themselves to be traitors the cause.

Where I come from we shoot traitors.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Lynch's decision to nix any reference to islam makes me wonder what FDR would have had to say in today's Dem party;

"Yesterday, December 7, 1941 a date which will live in infamy the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan some guys from somewhere that we don't want to rile up and besides they're perverting the honorable Shinto relig...oops....I mean the unknown faith that these nondescript guys may or may not follow.
Speaking the plain truth is not who we are."

maryrose

Gus:
It is merely 2 people who think alike and express similar opinions and would probably hang out together.
No offense meant but if it upsets someone I denounce myself.

Jack is Back!

Raggi is a friend of Mrs. JiB through mutual Roma friends. She is a person to recond with and not a corrupted-able kind of poltiician. She has enough money, like Trump.

Hard to believe we missed all this from being incommunicado for 2 years. Saw her in 2014 for a few minutes when we were in Rome.

Watch out Roma!

Jack is Back!

Love to hear CH's commentary on how the game is going tonight. Looks like the Cavs are struggling more than the Warriors. But who knows. Its the NBA where teams come back from like 35 points down and win in the last 7 minutes.

buccaneer morgan

well they don't assume, ala sun tzu, a game is won before it's played,

Beasts of England

That's what you got out of my 7:08 - 'enough is enough'? That was the gist of my argument? Good grief, maryrose - seek help.

Beasts of England

Thank you very much, JiB! I will absolutely consider it!!

That's awesome, GUS!! They probably have bent grass fairways in your neck of the woods!

buccaneer morgan

small world it is, JiB.

GUS

No problem Maryrose, none at all. I was just pointing out that THEO MASSENGIL does not approve of you calling Beasts and Lyle names. I don't believe Beasts and Lyle will take offense to such name calling either!!!!

clarice

Narciso, your comment on Felt was very good.

Here's Wretchard (on FB)--remember I still have some sharpened pikes and pitchforks on sale:


The administration's greatest single accomplishment has been to break down the trust networks which formerly made governance easy. Trust between the races has been eroded by the ruthless use of identity politics. The relationship between police and minority communities is at an all time low even in, or especially in Democratic controlled cities (Ferguson effect). The media is less trusted than even politicians.
It is evident from the refusal of the Orlando killers' family to come forward that the Muslim community doesn't trust the Obama administration. Now they are wondering whether largely white, anti-government threats are also out there.
The Washington Post reported that there aren't enough agents to keep track of Islamist suspects. Add to that number criminals newly empowered under Ferguson. Add to that the nascent, but potentially huge threat from a disgruntled "right wing".
There aren't enough cops in the whole Federal government sufficient to cope with the turmoil. And it's all self-inflicted. The president took a system which was, for all its defects, roughly functional and turned it into a mess. Obama is the Sorcerer's apprentice. He knew enough to start trouble but hasn't got a clue about how to manage it. His middle East performance is a preview of his skills, that is to say the absence of them.

GUS

Beasts, grass is illegal Bushwood sir!!

Beasts of England

Somebody called my a name? I must have missed it...

Beasts of England

How about gambling?

GUS

Clarice, are you saying that because Obama is black??

Jack is Back!

clarice,

Couldn't have said it better. But i would add it is purposeful in his amatuer way.

clarice

Hmm, Gus.
BTW Jeff is may favorite [to hate] , don't tell the others.
These fights are stupid actually. Anyone here would give blood to help another poster. Bear that in mind. You know I'm right.

GUS

But seriously Clarice, Obama has always been a f(Redacted) up. His skill set is non-existant. He is an arsonist. Pure and simple. The biggest divisions and fights here at JOM are centering around a REPUBLICAN PARTY that still does not understand what this SAD EXCUSE for a MAN is and has done. The GOP has allowed much of this to happen, and continues. The GOP, and I'm so so sorry, specifically PAUL RYAN, continue to WATCH Obama and do NOTHING. We can parse on that point, but, Obama et al have played VERY VERY HARD BALL. Ryan and McConnell and Boehner have taken it. Trump winning means Ryan and McConnell are marginalized FOREVER. They cannot allow that to happen.

Beasts of England

Cloward-Piven comes to mind, Clarice.

buccaneer morgan

it's like a festivus family gathering, with the 'airing of grievances'

Jack is Back!

Off to bed upstairs. May turn the game on, may not. I am a happy papa. Have my son to dinner. Let him play his games. He let me watch the golf. Life is good. 2 1/2 days to the end of school then off to Wellesley for summer camp.

Slaap lekker, tots morgen.

GUS

Fundamental Transformation!! Frick Cloward and Frack Piven.

Happy Festivus Day!!!

Rocco

Now they are wondering whether largely white, anti-government threats are also out there.

That was in the same DHS advisory council report released last week. Can't say jihad or sharia and it was probably the fault of angry white dudes instead.

GUS

Rocco, it's mind blowingly absurd. Obama was pissing a lot of OKIE DOKE about the VFW recently.
How dare these veterans of Foreign Wars object to a pot smoking Commie loser being President.

Fully funded by the idiot Ryan, Rocco. With many millions more to come. But he's a great guy, according to some...

For most posters -yes
For others I would have to call upon the Pope's call for this to be the year of Mercy.
"Seek help"
I hope you do .

maryrose

Trump is just the Bees Knees is he not?

Beasts of England

Look, maryrose, I've been fairly kind to you so far - I'd say about a '4'. But, if you chose to continue the dissembling, obtuseness, projection, passive-aggressive whining, and duplicity, I'll dial it up to about '8'.

And trust me, you won't like it - but you'll only have yourself to blame, sweetie...

p.s. your 'Pope' is a commie - I don't give a fuck about his 'mercy' or yours.

Jack is Back!

Upstairs in bed. Game on. Is it looking like a last second FG to win? Certainly looks like it. Where is Curry? Now that is telling.

GUS is MONTY HALL

I have a very simple equation Maryrose.
You may have seen it before.

Rodham is a SHIT SANDWICH. Extra large.
Trump is SHIT SANDWICH LITE. Smaller, Still doesn't TASTE GREAT, but IS LESS FILLING.

You have to choose one, or you get the other.
Talk, post, blather, bloviate, convince, argue, chat, discourse on and on and on and on.

PICK ONE. or GET THE OTHER

Miss Marple

Trump is the man who stood up and stepped into the arena.

He is a flawed man, as are we all.

Yet he has called up patriotism and courage from citizens who for too long have been marginalized.

I do not like him mocked, for I think he has shown tremendous fortitude and courage.

Maybe he won't win. But I know for damn sure the rest of the field would not have done as well.

So I will defend him because he is the only one defending us.

Porchlight

I like Trump. I am voting for him, not just against Clinton.

sbw

Trump is just the Bees Knees is he not?

Goading, pure and simple.

Adds nothing to the conversation. Designed to irritate. Not something I would expect from someone of your caliber.

maryrose

Gus
I have said I am voting for Trump.
Frick is now threatening me and wants to dial it up.Sorry I believe in consequences and don't reward bad behavior.
Your anger issue problems are now in the open for all to see.

Beasts of England

Exactly, Miss Marple. Trump has huge flaws as a person and as a candidate - as do most politicians and human beings, viz: Denny Hastert. But it's just ridiculous the way our support of the presumptive nominee is deliberately misconstrued. Oh, well, it's no reflection on us. Hang in there - we'll do our best with or without the whiners and losers.

Threadkiller

Trump is just the Bees Knees is he not?

Is that what you will be telling you liberal continuum?

Beasts of England

Grow up, maryrose.

sbw,

Also extremely dishonest, in view of previous posts in this thread feigning a small modicum of respect for Mr. Trump

GUS

I am voting FOR TRUMP. Rodham is a CRIMINAL. RODHAM IS A CRIMINAL. Being SERIOUS, there is no comparison. Virtually every person who posts here would be a better choice than Rodham. She has no skills NONE, she has NO TRACK RECORD of SUCCESS in her life....none. She is not a person of honor, nor character. She has enriched her fat ass with money from foreign countries, and specifically many Muslim nations who practice oppression unheard of in the Western World. The very Lib/Commies who shit their pants over 3 MURDERERS being WATERBOARDED, do not shed a single tear over WOMEN and HOMOSEXUALS being abused. Not to mention her abuse of the women her Husband also abused. I do not dislike Trump and I will accept him happily should he win. RODHAM IS FILTH. She is unqualified and immoral.

maryrose

No way to know or project the fact that another candidate may not have won the presidency.
Facts not in evidence.

Porchlight,


That was good to hear. Mr. Trump is working his a-- off, giving time, money, energy, even risking his life for some of the things he says, that I'm sure some would love to silence.

I loathe ingrates.

maryrose

I'll put my record of winning my friends over up against anyone's
You watch us deliver Ohio for Trump.
Florida should also have a perpetual presence of either Trump or his surrogates. We delivered Ohio for Budh twice thanks to the Amish people voting in Holmes County.

maryrose

Should be Bush

GUS

I sure hope they handle things well in CLeveland tonight. A dry run so-to-speak.

Jeff Dobbs

Congrats Cavs.

Porchlight

CLEVELAND WINS!!!

Miss Marple

Facts not in evidence: candidates who weren't able to beat Trump would not be able to defeat Hillary.

That is a FACT.

Just like Romney, who couldn't defeat McCain, who LOST to Obama, couldn't defeat Obama, either.

FACT.

We will savor this for a very long time!

You have to love the continued stupidity. The general election 'experts' have spoken. It's truly bizarre - the more incorrect they were in understanding the primary, the more certain they are of their 'facts' in the general. You just can't make up this bullshit.

maryrose

Thanks TC!

Beasts of England

Yeah, supporting the presumptive nominee is such a novel concept. Sheesh. Get up off your Paul Ryan Prayer Rug™ and buy a clue.

Miss Marple,

I'm so glad Mr. Trump has supporters like you.

We are winners in Cleveland with our NBA championship !
We will also host an awesome convention!Beasts is correct in the words of George Carlin that politics is all BS.

Yes, maryrose will deliver Ohio for Mr. Trump.

Mr. Trump's leadership and message will have nothing to do with it at all.
