GUS

Momto2, Thank you so much. Your posts to me vis a vis reading, and sharing the literature etc are quite awesome. What you suggest and describe....I DO...with my son. And while we are at it, when I have Daddy/Son private time, often while we are driving together, we discuss these things, and philosophy and logic and we talk about GOD and our share faith. I'm glad you and I became friends Mom2to. You are quite interesting, and I know of your personal sacrifices for CHILDREN.
One last point. I was driving with my son earlier this Spring-summer, and I told him something I'd never told another soul. We were talking about HEAVEN or The Afterlife, and I told him, that I'd always been a wee bit afraid of LIFE IN HEAVEN "FOREVER". I told him the concept had made me feel a wee bit afraid or "uneasy". Again, I'd never shared that thought with ANYONE.
My boy said. "Daddy, you're not alone, I've felt that way too". Mom2to. He's 15 and he and I shared something PRICELESS. We chatted as we drove and other topics came up too.
THAT IS LOVE. That is being a parent. And my SON made me love him even more.

Janet S.

Why does Gary Johnson have to have a plan for Syria? He isn't a Syrian.
Syria can do whatever it wants. Who are we to tell them what to do?

Obama can drop some leaflets with his hope & change suggestions:
$15 minimum wage
green energy
infrastructure spending
coed bathrooms, changing rooms, & showers
redefine marriage
turn half of their country into a national park


Let's just not let anyone from Syria into America.
How bout we focus on protecting our homeland? Can we do that?

GUS

Gary Johnson will drop REALLY GOOD POT on Syria.
Syrians will get EXTRA SOOOPER DOOOOPER MELLOW.
Then he will drop DORITO'S.

STIMULUS BABY. FRITO LAY is all in.

narciso

he doesn't and that wasn't the point of the exercise, janet, as the treehouse points out, you would think the last 15 years, would have taught some humility for those involved,

volodya has been practicing hama rules in aleppo,
'making the rubble bounce' is the common phrase, islamic front, jaish fateh, and free syrians, six of one, half a dozen of another,

GUS

No Janet, that "Is not who we are".
Syrians need to come here to make DETROIT GREAT AGAIN.

It's absurd, but the MARXOCRAT PARTY again, is ALL IN.

THE FULL COMMIE.

interesting you say that gus, this fellow, once upon a time, was in control of the hashish and opium in lebanon, yet the french freely did business with him,

GUS

Ok Narciso, One more time. VOLODYA is???

I know Aleppo, because I don't smoke pot, and because my Great Grandfather, whom I am named for, and for whom my Son is named for, was killed Oct 23 1918 and buried in Syria. Aleppo should BURN like Dresden. Islamic State should get a 2 minute warning. Maybe LEAFLETS with Opies picture.
IN 2 MINUTES ALEPPO is GONE. ALLAHU AKBAR and GOOD NIGHT. Followed by BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM.
This terror and shit would come to and with the QUICKNESS if Harry Truman and Winston Churchill were at the helm.

BeenThereDoneThat

Gus, read "Imagine Heaven" - Amazon has it, Kindle or hard copy. The writer researched hundreds of people who had 'near death' or 'Heaven' experiences and found so many similarities, he decided to write a book about what he discovered.

narciso

Putin, Gus, he does what they pretended happened in the opening to running man, where they framed arnold's character, the film is cheesy, but it's much better than stephen kings' rather lachrymose novella.

GUS

Narciso. Putin is a "strong man". He is the head of RUSSIA and he WAS/ACTUALLY still is the HEAD of the KGB. RODHAM figured a STUNT with a RESET BUTTON was going to get RESPECT?????????
Holy Snarfin' Arseholes Margaret????? This is the SECRETARY of STATE of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA???? Why yes, yes she was.
Not to be outdone. JAMES FUCKING TAYLOR is flown by STATE DEPARTMENT to PARIS, a couple days late, by Johnny Gigolo Lurch... and a few JIHADS short, to sing.
YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND, in response to MASS MURDER TERRORISM. It STUNS my fertile brain. HOW CAN OUR "LEADERS" be so RETARDED.


And VOLODYA is????

GUS

BEEN THERE DONE THAT!!! Thank you. I shall get that book IMMEDIATELY. My son has his SOPHOMORE "RETREAT" next weekend. His High School is the PRE-EMINANT Catholic and Jesuit High School in WISCONSIN. The retreat is at the SCHOENSTATT Catholic retreat center in Waukesha Wisconsin.
I'm going to give him the book for his retreat.
Thank you so much.

Gus, Volodya is the nickname for Vladimir, as in Putin.

now ask why I'm cynical to trust volodya, go ahead,

I've never been naive, but I'm somewhat stunned at how COMPLETE the GESTAPO has silenced the MEDIA

Birthers figured this out in 2008.

BeenThereDoneThat

That's wonderful, Gus! I have the book on Kindle and pop in to re-read chapters when the world gets too crazy, just to be reminded.... :)

narciso

this world has much joy, but much pain as well, as a christian, whatever denomination, is to realize there is more than this existence,

GUS

TK, you and I have had ups and downs, and by now, you must certainly know that I respect you.
Your passion is compartmentalized, and you have one or hehehehehehehhe, 2 specific issues that DRIVE you.
I've never thought that you were NUTS. And frankly, I've always thought that FOR SOME REASON, Obama's ELIGIBILITY is/was your cause because you "understood" that certain things didn't add up. ASS of SPADES banned me many years ago for making an off the cuff remark about BARRY HUSSEIN. I get it. We lost that fight and Barney Fife Obama is about to leave.
Thank you for the good fight.

Threadkiller

We lost that fight

We lose the fight when the homo gets a library and an aircraft carrier named after him.

Don't give up yet.

GUS

Brother I haven't given up, nor will I ever.

Harvey Milk is an example of SLAMMMMMING THEIR AGENDA down our throats.
In fairness, I believe the LATE Harvey Milk was a NAVAL VET.

Can't sleep now.

Hah, commenter Peter Lang over at Judy's newest political thread asks "Has the yappy one been impeached? He hasn't made any comment yet."

GUS

Kim, you aren't the only one who cannot sleep1!!

When B.J. put some ice on that" was impeached, the SENATE did not have the balls to REMOVE.

Do you think the DEMOTARD PARTY would not use the SENATE to REMOVE........any .....any... NOT COMMIE Republican President??????

Can sleep now.

Nonetheless, I persist in three things.

1. I believe he may have been midwived undocumented, in Hawaii.
2. I believe in the unique meaning of 'natural born' and he isn't, but even 'natural born' is an inadequate means of assuring allegiance, which is the root problem with Obama, and why 'birtherism' persists popularly.
3. The birth certificate controversy won't be settled until there are adversarial forensic document examiners who examine his long form certificate, and I doubt that will ever happen.

Maybe that's so 19th Century.

One thing I really object to is the immunity Senators have in chamber. Reid was outrageous; you'd think common courtesy, manifest by the will of the rest of the Senators would have squelched that.

GUS

ONE EYED JERK. Searchlight Harry, got his head caved in, because he didn't pay the DUES he was supposed to pay.
Our COUNTRY has been taken over by RICO CRIMINALS who are PROTECTED by U OF MIZZOU TYPE, retarded FUKWADS. WE TAKE IT. The GOP knows what you and I know KIM. THEY JUST DON'T CARE.
The ELITES. Boehner, McConnell, Ryan et al, are either STUPID. I recognize how MORONIC that theory is.....OR THEY ARE COMPLICIT. Kim, how can this many heretofore thought of as CONSERVATIVE DECENT HONORABLE PEEPS, be COMPLETELY COMPLICIT?????????

THERE IS NO OTHER EXPLANATION. We've been FUCKED by the GOP and even those WE HOPED were truly CONSERVATIVE.

Name ONE CONSERVATIVE who is RAISING HELL and CALLING OUT THE GOP!!!!! NAME ONE!!!

Just have to follow the timeline in the deletion of the e-mails.
Why was this Combetta fellow given immunity by the Justice Department?
The fix was in and all are tainted by it.
No wonder Obama said months ago no criminal activity.
He knew the e-mails were deleted.
BC met with Lynch to coordinate their strategy and story.
This is sick even by Washington standards.
We the voters must administer justice here or our system is a travesty.

Vast majority of voters are oblivious to the degree of the corruption.

Of those that are not oblivious, how many are motivated to stand up and say "enough is enough".

More likely to be like the 5300 people that got fired from Wells Fargo.

Living next door to the Congresman is an older (probably early 60's) Muslim gentleman who barely speaks and can't read English, and received public assistance.

Next to him is an FBI agent who shares her apartment with two other young women.

The Clinton campaign is great isn't it? The stories about her health won't hurt her, but dammit, you'd better stop printing them. There's no truth to the stories. Trust us. Would we lie? Will her records be released? No! Her health records don't matter, but she's in great shape.
I agree. She's in great shape.... for a corpse. (The "p" is not silent just in case 404 reads this post)

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/09/were-the-only-plane-in-the-sky-214230

This is a fascinating compilation of September 11, 2001 from interviews with pilots, staff, military aides, Secret Service, Air Force base generals, and reporters, all involved either on Air Force One or at places the plane stopped.

It reminds me that W was very good in those first days and was a good wartime president. I need to hang onto that and let go of my anger over the last 2-3 years of his administration.

A good exercise is to think about Trump vs. Hillary in the same role. Hillary would not be able to make a decision, if you ask me.

Scrolling through last nights comments, the Wells Fargo encounters caught my eye. I had an account with them since 2003 when in 2009, I went to the drive up ATM at one of their local branches and punched in $100. All I got was the receipt, no money.

Went into the bank to see the manager. Nothing she could do but fill out a claim and send it up to North Carolina HQ. They got back to me that there was no indication of a problem with the machine and I would not get the $100 they stole from me in broad daylight.

That is when I closed the account and wrote them a letter in rather strong language.

For Wells Fargo cusomers, and everyone else, free credit report. A useful law, these should tell you if Wells Fargo opened any accounts on you. (from our Chicago friend).

Mark Zuckerberg famously summed up the Valley ethos at age 22, when he told a Stanford audience, “Younger people are just smarter.”

From that dilly of an “article” above: FIFY: Puffington Host Editor’s note: Donald Trump Puffington Host regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, that accuses others of being misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Janet S.

from henry's 9:01 -

"...Meadows questioned why the State Department handed over an email chain between Colin Powell and Clinton just five days after Rep. Elijah Cummings, the committee's top Democrat, and seven other minority members asked for it while ignoring a FOIA request for that same email since 2014."

How did Cummings know to ask for it?

Old Lurker

President Trump's first EO should be to hire 1000 lawyers whose only jobs will be to prosecute to the fullest any government employee at any level who fails to follow the law in each and every instance. Some of them should be tasked with getting any lawyer involved in same disbarred. This team should be more feared than the IRS and the EPA combined.

Didn't Al Gore say something similar, James?

I tjink it was back when Glenn Beck was useful that I heard a recording of Gore telling a group of children that they are smarter than their parents.

Sunday is the 15th anniversary of 9/11/2001.

Testing at the San Diego County Public Health Laboratory confirmed the person had the Zika virus, which was not acquired in the U.S.

*******

Two types of Aedes mosquitoes — the Aedes aegypti, yellow-fever mosquito and the Aedes albopictus, Asian tiger mosquito — were found in San Diego County for the first time in 2014 and 2015.

They are smaller than native mosquitoes, have distinctive black and white markings, are known as aggressive biters and — unlike our native mosquitoes that prefer to feed between dusk and dawn — like to bite and feed during daylight hours as well.

Let's take 100% of all the wealth in the US. All of it.

Distribute it in equal shares to all U.S. Citizens.

Fire every single employee of all government at all levels.

Fire every single elected politician.

Restore the Constitution to the original document plus the Bill of Rights, and erase all regulations and misc laws currently on the books at every level.

Erase all court decisions, every single one, which purport to "interpret" the Constitution.

Then start over with a clean slate.

OK, there might be some details involved, but I find this a nice way to fall asleep each night.

Having followed the Freddie Gray saga in Baltimore, and seen and heard the racist black female mayor and racist Nifongesque black female DA in action, I now understand how Ellijah Cummings made it to the U.S. House and remained for 20 yrs. and counting.

Matt

Adam Clayton Powell evaded justice for 20 years, Deb. It is a problem with Democratic districts for the most part. Pay for play has been around since before Tammany, and race baiting goes back even further.

We were supposed to be beyond this with the Lightbringer, but darnit, he keeps on opening his yap and making things worse.

If these SJW's and BLM's continue with the farce on the football fields I can see NFL nation turning its back on the game.

Pro football is in a very weird place right now. Goodell has alienated all sorts of stakeholders, especially the fans and with big name stars like Lynch leaving the game to maintain their health as well as the TBI scandal I think the industry has reached its upper limit.

If it wants to remain "America's sport" then it has to appeal to Americans of a certain demographic. If they turn into a bunch of SJW's as they have been, I think we're going to see what happened to the MSM happen to the NFL.

You just can't afford to anger your audience and expect business to do well.

from our betters at the Amazon Daily Worker

The Hillary Clinton email story is out of control

>>>In fact, Ms. Clinton’s emails have endured much more scrutiny than an ordinary person’s would have, and the criminal case against her was so thin that charging her would have been to treat her very differently.<<<

DebinNC

Maybe because I'm not a sports person, I don't see the appropriateness of playing the national anthem before a sporting event. Tradition? At this point it just provides a useful opportunity for mischief making and creating divisions and ill will imo.

Good Lord, did they really write that? "she's endured much more scrutiny than an ordinary person?"

She's NOT an ordinary person! She was Secretary of State and privy to incredibly sensitive national security information upon which lives (potentially thousands or hundreds of thousands) of lives depended! OF COURSE her actions got - and deserve - more scrutiny than those of your average office worker!

Do they honestly not understand that?

think that is the plan-to get teams to stop playing it. Then they move on to some other outrage. SJWs are worse than locusts.

has anyone showed these guys the base demographic of their fan base?

I also vaguely remember a building height contrarian indicator (markets peak when building get taller) and it can easily be applied to the NFL: billion dollar palaces, many funded by taxpayers, and no possibility the facility will generate the returns to pay for itself.

Janet S.

and...
Just so we're clear in case there is ever a Republican administration...

From now on every SoS can have their own private, off-site computer setup so they can connect with ONLY their own chosen crew & do whatever they want with no interference.

No more prosecutions for mishandling classified info either. Who cares about that anymore. It apparently doesn't make any difference.

And lying at Congressional hearings is a-okay.
