Golly day, daddy. That's a lot of bread pudding.

Nice to see you call out Arch today on FB. He's either got the goods or is full of it.

Love to know which it is.

Can't figure out why Hillary looking like a giant Blueberry got me thinking about Oompah Loompahs:

This pic made me laugh:)

who is Arch?

a comment about the Supreme Court decision -

coilette ~ "This case had little to do with the right of women to get abortions. The case was brought by abortion providers claiming the right to not be held to health and safety standards. If people really cared about women, they would want clinics to be sanitary and have the safeguards of being able to receive adequate medical care. This is a win for the abortion industry, that's all."

Looks like Paul Ryan just drew a line in the sand: Paul Ryan: I won’t tolerate another sit-in from Democrats

Democrats have talked of more action when Congress returns from recess early next month, but Ryan said “we are not going to handle it the same way.”

He did not reveal specifics about how it would be handled differently.

“We will not take this,” he said. “We will not tolerate this.”

Beats me what his options are but my guess is the Dem's will call his bluff.

well collapsing from involuntary laughter is a problem,

Most people don't understand just how relatively small a single army division is, for a national military force. Just 10-15k personnel, depending on TO&E.

So, the UK - a country of 64 Million - has just 1 division.

Levin is incredulous at the Supreme Court giving an ok to Gosnell type clinics in Texas. This is just as bad as Dred Scott, Plessy v Ferguson and Koramatsu, brought to you by very fallible individuals operating without a moral compass. It is past time for a convention of states to reverse this specifically by Article V if not end all judicial tyranny by eliminating Marbury v Madison and let there be elections in which you remove the permanent damage that appointing Supreme Court justices can wreak.

BTDT, it has become their cause. Living a vile life of "anything goes", is sick and must rip the guts and souls out of these freaks. Instead of "Coming to Jesus" ....so-to-speak, these sick evil bastards and bastardettes, DOUBLE DOWN and delude themselves into believe SOME GOOD ACTUALLY does come from KILLING THEIR BABIES.

Womens health comes from that!!! Having your own CHILD literally RIPPED from your womb, often in multiple pieces.....IS YOUR HEALTHCARE.
Those who would object to the CHILD BEING RIPPPPPPED TO SHREDS, .......hate WYMYN.

Better... 10 business days til the launch. Now I'm getting Bangalorean data clerks to process the info coming in. My time sense is gonna be totally [redacted].

Not my choice, but I don't pay the bills.

Oh!! And by the way. The LIFESTYLES and ZERO RESPONSIBILITIES that THE LIB/COMMIE RODHAM/WARREN party espouses, includes.......FREE COLLEGE and COLLEGE DEBT AMNESTY (READ GOVERNMENT......US/WE PAY FOR IT) Free HEALTH CARE under Mom and/or Dad until 27, and CRADLE TO GRAVE AGITPROP and INDOCTRINATION of LIBERAL/COMMIE BULLSHIT in PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

So the YOUNG FOLKS have been trained like PAVLOVS DOG.

Mild adventure tonight in honor of Janet's Birthday.

Near the end of the dog walk, was heading up a small dirt path in the forest when suddenly Fry took off into the woods on my left, followed instantly by Scout. "Drat", thought I, "There must be a picnic or something in the meadow that's 100 yards on the other side of the woods and he's smelling something to eat. The picnickers are going to angry#$%"

Then I heard the barking. So now I'm hightailing it though the brush trying to see whats up, and suddenly both dogs dash right back at me. "Uh oh!"

Scout (the girl), who is smart, decides to stay near me, but that moron Fry pauses only a second or 2, then turns back and runs out into the meadow again, barking a storm---"Bark, bark, bark bark, bark!"

"Dammitall!" sez I.

I leash Scout, then drag her to the edge of the woods, expecting to see a moose, but instead I see portions of a good size Black Bear 40 yards on, just in the woods on the other side, and moron Fry is intentionally aggravating her. So him I holler at super loud and angry like, grab the sucker, leash him up, and drag him straining backwards into the woods and up the other direction. And right then and there I gave him a good talking to!

Having got that out of my system, I recall I had noticed a guy and a gal under a gazebo in the meadow a hundred yards up from the bear, so I asked him how big it was and they said it was a Momma and 2 cubs, and that Fry the moron and Scout had come out barking at the 2 cubs who were just on the edge of the meadow, and that had caused the Momma to come charging out of the woods at them, so thats when those weasels hightailed it straight back towards me rustling thru the underbrush.

Bad dog, Fry, Bad dog:(

No harm done in the long run though, so a nice way to celebrate Janet's Birthday and survive it all in one piece with a fun memory:)


I was sure they was saying "Happy Birthday Janet!!!"

anonamom

TOTALLY worth catching up!
TC got a tatoo! What an honorable man.
AND he's going to text me a picture of it too.

Remind me what the bet was about.

Belated happy birthday Janet. Many. many more.

anonamom

Stephanie, I get your 12:45. But I am not a nerd or a geek! I'm EN(F=T)J.
For those who don't, Settlers of Catan is the hipster version of Monopoly, though from the undeveloped ground up.

So loving on that while supporting Bernie doesn't quite mesh.

BIG favorite at the lake in Michigan among the under thirty set. But they are kids who still have summer jobs---like roofing, slaughtering chickens, building houses, driving moving trucks cross country, lifeguarding the Ocean City NJ beach---so they kinda totally get the value of free markets and commerce.

My dad's ashes are buried at the back of the property--"Not in the lake, put me under all those damned leaves I raked!"--- but his work ethic and values live on.

Good morning!

daddy, LOL at those Far Side cartooons, for that is EXACTLY what my dogs act like some days!

Although, last night Maggie was pestering me and I said, "I suppose this means..." (normally followed by "you want a dog biscuit.")

All I said was "I suppose this means" and Maggie, as well as the two little dogs, were in dog biscuit reception stance. (Pibby on the arm of the sofa, Jack on the top of the sofa, Maggie standing under the bar where the basket is.) Hilarious!

I may not have learned dog, but the dogs have learned English!

Just caught a quick clip on the news from the possible Clinton-Warren* ticket and realized that I've never heard Lizzy speak. Not a pleasant experience.

Beasts,

How those two grifter women came to be the icons for women's rights and supposedly middle class champions is beyond me.

Neither one has ever done anything but leech off government and academe. Both have siphoned off money that is unearned.

I wish someone would ask Warren about that $300,000+ salary she was paid for teaching ONE class. How many former students are still paying on loans that paid her salary?

Great article, Clarice!

I absolutely agree with this:

What I would bet on is that Democrats will continue to stretch the criminal law for partisan advantage, and that, if elected; Hillary will appoint prosecutors and judges willing to continue to mount such legal warfare.

Even if she's not elected, the Democrats will continue to mount such warfare in the states (as we've seen in Wisconsin, in Texas and elsewhere).

It will continue until the GOP responds in kind. When GOP prosecutors start mounting these kind of partisan prosecutions, and they start wrecking the lives of Democrats, bankrupting them with legal fees, humiliating their families, dragging their friends and business associates into the investigations...then, maybe, the Dems will stop.

When it becomes sufficiently painful for them to continue such prosecutions, when the GOP starts taking an eye for an eye, then it will stop.

Mutual assured destruction worked against the Communists in Russia. It ought to work against the Communists on Capitol Hill and in the state capitals, too.

I think Hillary does not want the competition of having Warren as her running mate. Hillary wants to be the star on the ticket and would be jealous of Warren.

I agree that Castro is most likely. As I said yesterday, this is a media distraction. It also reveals her as a weak campaigner in that she has to phone-a-friend to get turnout at her rallies. I'm sure she'll do the same with Booker, Perez and others in the coming weeks.

That Google thing reminds me of those claims that GM conspired with cities to destroy public transportation in the 1950s. Not sure if there was anything to them. But I don't doubt that Google is ginning up the cronyism to get itself locked onto taxpayer dollars.

James D.

MM @ 8:06

At the end of the article, this quote from Hillary ought to disqualify her from the Presidency just by itself:

"There have been seven investigations led mostly by Republicans in the Congress and they were non-partisan and they reached conclusions that, first of all, I and nobody did anything wrong but there were changes we could make," Clinton said during a TODAY town hall on Oct. 5, 2015.

She's a sociopath who cares nothing for the lives of the people that serve under her. She says it herself. All she cares about is that she cannot personally be held legally liable for the disaster. That's it.

No concern for the lives lost. No worries about national security. None of that matters. All that does matter is that she can't be blamed.

And certainly no acknowledgement of her duty as Secretary of State, that even if she didn't personally make any mistakes, that whatever happened at State is ultimately her responsibility, because THAT'S HER JOB.

It's a wonderful precedent for how she would act as President - just like Obama, nothing will be her fault, the buck will not stop at her desk, ever.

Anyone who could vote for her after reading even that one paragraph from her, is beyond any hope of reason or sanity.

Miss Marple 2

jimmyk,

In the 1930's through 1941s we had something called the Interurban Railway, which went from Indianapolis to outlying cities at fairly high speed.

My dad used to ride it to Franklin from Indianapolis when he was in high school. He always maintained the auto companies killed it (we were an automobile manufacturing city back then) but I think it was simply a coincidence between the Depression, the war, and the rise of the automobile. Here is the Wikipedia article on it:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indiana_Railroad

On my side of Indianapolis there are roads called Stop 10 Road, Stop 11 Road, etc. and these are remnants of stops along the rail line.

Near my grandkids home is an odd road that runs parallel to the main highway. It is actually paved over former rail lines.

When I was a kid, and in fact until I was a young adult, the old traction terminal of that line had been converted to the Indianapolis Bus Station. It was built out of iron and had a huge arched ceiling under which the buses pulled in.
