Thanks, MM. I haven't had a chance to talk to them yet - they just got home.

The line about "market failure" is classic Dad. :)

GUS

No Marty, Jack and I are in on it together. Ask Jack, he'll tell you. We pulled off the BECHTEL job as a team.
Hope you're having a nice day Marty! You see a wee bit edgy.

Barbara

Forget what anyone says; watch what the candidates do. That tells us what is going on.

That's good advice, Art. I should post it over the TV set.

We must've all had chicken pox because our shingles rash (TBT) keeps returning. Is it too late for the vaccine?

Barbara,

Some discussion of PA in this Reddit thread today about NJ:

https://www.reddit.com/r/The_Donald/comments/4xtux6/trump_will_win_nj/

Really terrific speech today, I thought. Media will not cover it fairly, but someone on Reddit said that a caller on C-SPAN claimed that it changed his mind and that he was switching from Clinton to Trump.

25,000 viewers on the Reddit livestream.

Gus

I thought you worked with Hastert.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

That's hilarious Dave and more of a thrill than Billy Jeff has given the old crow bait...probably ever.

Porchlight

TBT is a bot.

Barbara

...someone on Reddit said that a caller on C-SPAN claimed that it changed his mind and that he was switching from Clinton to Trump.

25,000 viewers on the Reddit livestream.

That is great news, Porch!

I'm glad that you liked the speech as well. Trump delivered it in a calm, but forceful, manner that hit just the right note. While Trump's great strength appears to be speaking directly to the audience with few, if any notes, he seems to have become more comfortable using the teleprompter. He uses it when it's appropriate. As my Dad used to say, he picks his spots.

That photo of the panic at the airport was scary. I'm glad that your parents are home and safe.

narciso

I thought it was a good speech, hence the squirrel, the truth is the sauds the emirates and erdigan, have been playing us off Iran and syria, varsity vs Hezbollah.

Miss Marple 2

Another part of the speech I really, really liked was the part about us being one people.

The division in this country has been terrible.

I also liked the idea of parents teaching their kids about America's heritage and principles.

JeanD

viewers?...after they've nodded off & fallen?

Well done, Janet! :)

I have been watching the equestrian events on the NBC livestream, and have been treated to the Hillary ads again and again. She is not winning me over by inserting politics into these events; but, I guess she learned this from Obama (who has inserted himself into everything imaginable over these 8 long years.)

I assume that even her supporters would like a few minutes off now and again. Just let me watch these horses in peace!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

You mean like this kind of bot, Porch?

Porchlight

Thank you, Barbara. :)

Here is a great comment from another "silent majority" thread on Reddit.

I know, anecdotes, but they make me feel good. :)

[–]theffxAZ 28 points 4 hours ago

At a bar last weekend I saw a guy wearing what I thought was a red MAGA hat. As I walked over to lend support, I noticed it was an anti-MAGA spoof hat. I persevered anyway. I told him I was coming over to help him MAGA, but I noticed he actually wasn't wearing a MAGA hat. We had a mostly civil discussion about Trump, although he was very adimately against Trump (he was also against Hillary). His buddy he was there with mostly stayed out of the conversation except to say he doesn't like either and isn't going to vote. After we were done talking and I was leaving, the anti-MAGA hat guy's friend whispered to me that he was actually going to vote Trump in November.

The silent majority is real folks! And it's everywhere, even in the socal circles of the most vocal anti-Trump people.

Jack is Back!

TBT/Marty

Why do you want to emulate Cleo, Bubu, KaKa and Theo and play the fool here? Do you really think you are something other than a schmuck here? You have no touch, no interest. You are just a PiTA. But we do love to have you to make fun off. Its like playground all over again.

Porchlight

EWW, Iggy!

But yeah, kind of.

Stockingthetoolbox

Seems that Liberal Arts four year degrees aren't equal in treatment of studies. All's equal, but sciences, which are special. This has more to do with misperception, global aid agendas -run with it. There's a lot of lingoings that are more applicable first year college; two years hoping for a transfer to a four year universities that usually reject true believers of these 'studies' of unpublished 'theories' that could not, at their core, be more unscientific in, at the least, academics. So, some confusion meant to scoop up these new, vulnerable and trusting new college students into a world they've been designed into; maybe study the recent shift in violence from the more traditional terrorism to other excuses for the raiding of this toolbox? There's a big difference between a 2 year local college's introduction and the shock and awe of a competitive four year university constantly ramping up over abyss'. The article reduces Liberal Arts to unacademic laypeoples buzzwords. It's like graduating psychiastry with a certificate in psychology. Changing DSM(e.g. 5) to how are you feeling today.

I just saw a political ad on local news for the two guys Susan Collins says she will vote for:
Johnson/Weld 2016.

Dang, Iggy! Now I've got to take my comment out back and scrub it off just because of proximity to yours. ;)

Riidle me this: Which country considers that country so special that they immediately gave them millions that resulted in the deaths of thousands of russian speakers. 'Advanced weapons' 'Regime changes.'

Marlene

So,Hillary was in Scranton today? Did she visit her father's grave? Recall I mentioned that last winter hubby took a flight with a man
who had a friend who owned a restaurant in Scranton. The funeral reception for her father was held at the restaurant. Hillary and family stiffed the restaurant and the DNC paid the bill.

Captain Hate

Johnson/Weld sounds like a machine shop.

Question for JOMers who, unlike me, like soccer and the Olympics: why is the wimmenz team not being roundly slattered for losing to Sweden like, say, the men's basketball team would be? A guy on local sports talk was claiming that was an epic gag job and only Hope Solo being a classless bint has drawn any measure of deserved abuse.

Captain Hate

Hillary and family stiffed the restaurant and the DNC paid the bill.

Rodham family values. When she loses in a landslide the meltdown should be awesome. Hide the lamps.

Porchlight

She is so predictably hideous.

lyle

I rarely listen to Jim Rome, but today he was slattering Hope Solo like she's never been slattered before, CH. It was brutal.

Miss Marple 2

I haven't gone through the speech transcript yet, but according to some posters I have read on other sites, all of his footnotes reference articles by left-wing and mainstream media.

Here's one post referencing that:

"Beat me to it. Huffpo, Wapo, NY Slime, NPR, CNN, et al. They have to eat their own in a fact-check.

Heh."

BeenThereDoneThat

Just got home from shopping, flipped on the TV and here's this McMillan ? guy, who is supposedly the new presidential candidate if he gets on the ballot in enough states, to throw off electoral votes so neither Hillary or Trump can win. Then it goes to the House for a vote and the new president is decided by the House - and I suppose he thinks it will be him. This guy's a real creep!

An McMillan says Trump is losing in every poll, his campaign is melting, he can never win, blah, blah....

jimmyk

Taranto finds this quote of Hillary's from a few months back: “The way Donald Trump talks about terrorism and his very insulting language towards Muslims is making him the ‘recruiting sergeant’ for ISIS.”

No one fact-checked that statement; even the interviewer grasped that she was speaking figuratively and accordingly put scare quotes around “recruiting sergeant.”

All the hysteria around Trump's supposed lies and boorishness is completely manufactured. Yet the fainting couch #NeverTrumpers fall for it.

Looks like the John Doe is in consideration at the Supreme Court. The fascists want their day (presumably after Hilligula stuffs the court or the GOPe lame duck approves Obama's lackey).

maryrose,

Thanks for the info about Egg McMuffin.

Brit Hime called him a credible alternative for those who can't stomach the 2 main candidates.

Viewers are overwhelmingly PO'd at Brit:

If Egg McMuffin wins Utah, and neither Trump or Clinton get 270, the decision goes to the House.

Is it a simple majority vote in the House?

lyle,

It may be 5th growth, whatever that means to you, but its my wife's grandfather's favorite wine and we serve it when people from Idaho come over to impress them:)

TBT, Jesus guy. Give it a break. I have been retired since 2003 and could give a rat's ass what the hell is going on there. But I know one thing. You would never be able to muster up to their standards even for a payroll clerk.

Zippy must be pissed to be missing golf for the stumbling gash. Translation: she's as attractive as a cat's ass and has Benghazi decision making skills.

I was afraid of something like this could be the case Beasts. Sounds like a cluster waiting to happen.

Hope Trump takes it decisively so we can avoid the drama.

Clarice, I'd wonder how much of the 100s of billions the clinton foundation grabbed out of PEPFAR - famous for gov agency payouts for no drugs, but whatever can be made up for a check. Then, I'd wonder what cut and diversion of the drug sales and production/distribution clinton foundation had🐑

lyle,

sorry to pull your chain. Its a funny story. Took place on the QE2 with my in laws. I order something and my FIL says let me see that wine list and told me about Cantermele and how he and my MIL use to love to hav it for special dinners.

From that day forward whenver Mrs. Jib want a "special" dinner we always have the Cantermele even though we have more special wines available.

Today was special for us because we are still happy together and Frederick is with us.

The classification system needs to be updated - 1855 is it? I remember several vintages from the seventies and eighties where some third and fifth growths from Pauillac were destroying a certain first growth from the same region. I'll volunteer to be a judge, of course. No charge!! (Again, I'm a giver...)

Great idea of Trump to go to Milwaukee--he can move that state then, too, to his column. People are sick of this BLM shit--Have Sheriff Clarke on the dias with him if he can get away.

1. They are the ENEMY.
2. They cannot be trusted.
3. They are full of bat-crap crazy people.
4. Obviously, they laughed at him, just like I am doing RIGHT NOW.

These Never Trumpers must think we are morons. To hell with them.

But I agree bold moves are what are required, as Mark Steyn has pointed out our must win states become smaller each cycle, while there's expands.
