Seemingly No Laughter

daddy

Good Morning!

Like airplane crashes, do these things happen in 3's?

1) Washington Muslim Mall Murderer Hangs Himself in Jail

2) Aaron Hernandez hangs himself in prison

My fingers are crossed.

lyle

Is Schumer in jail, daddy?

Hey, Micky Mouse  Club is on

As Trump continues his pre-school education, we've seen his genuine surprise on a number of issues..

Hoo coulda knowed it was so complicated?

He is such a liar..

Well dugard put no obvious whoppers in his Japan volume.

LOL, Dave.
O'Reilly seems like a good choice for the DIAF guest list.

lyle

No? How about Jawn Effing Kerry?

Hey, Micky Mouse  Club is on

It's like rubber-necking a car crash, porchlight.

Hillary didn't have an "empty boxes" problem. She had a "boxes full of bad stuff" problem.

Bingo.

* * *

About Hernandez, something weird occurred IMHO. That radio piece on WEEI was weird, and Baez (his winning attorney) made it clear he saw a path to winning on appeal and this would have freed him from prison.

The claim about him being gay? Many, many have been slimed with that claim -- including those in gangs. Easy way to try and cause doubt or dissension. More than a few guys join gangs, the military, etc., purely to cloak themselves with sexual respectability.

If you saw the much-awarded flick Moonlight (won 3 Oscars, including 2017 Best Picture) that was the deal. Would he kill himself over that kind of claim after just winning an acquittal?

lyle

Okay, I'll settle for Josh Earnest...

Trump is privatizing VA Hospitals?Asshole of a plan. He always spins his subhumanity as LARGESS.

Yes you can see the rAilroad tracks all over him, he's got a record of poor judgement so it doesn't come as a total shock.

Glorifying A Dictatorship? The Onion Has Nothing On Cosmo
—CBD

Starvation has been in the socialist toolkit for a very long time. Of course Stalin used to it to great effect, although we cannot discount Mao and Pol Pot and our current socialist hell-hole in Venezuela as strong competitors. But maniacal, homicidal despots killing their serfs is one thing....clueless "content directors" at Cosmo who ignorantly gloss over the human catastrophe that is socialism is something entirely different. Why Cosmo loves the 'Cuban diet', written by that famous political economist Rosie Mullender

Between 1990 and 1995, thanks to the collapse of the Soviet Union, Cuban people were forced to alter their entire lifestyles. They couldn't afford petrol, so the government provided them with bicycles. People started walking everywhere. Food was also in shorter supply - there were no supermarket aisles stuffed with junk food or wallets stuffed with money with which to buy it.
In short, Cubans could no longer afford to be fat. In that five-year period, they lost an average of around five kilos per person, which is over 11lbs. As a result of people getting slimmer, they also started living longer, with fewer Cubans dying of diabetes and heart disease.

All of which is fantastic - except it didn't last. When the crisis ended, people started eating more and moving less and putting all that weight back on until, in the mid 2000s, they were right back where they started.

What this clueless wonder doesn't seem to understand is that when whole populations can't get enough food, the one's on the margin die. I have to assume that she is simply an ignorant idiot and not a willing participant in the Left's campaign to resurrect International Socialism. Based on her other cutting edge analyses like "15 bikini struggles girls with big boobs will FEEL," and "Why you'll get over your break-up faster than he will. So ha," I'm betting on stupidity.

Next up? "Want Great Abs? Move To North Korea!"

[H/T Elizabeth N. Brown]

Addendum Cosmo seems to have shit-canned the article. I wonder why?

Squandering democracy.

Yeah..burn after reading..lol

(Pay no attention to his velvet glove Iran hater betrayal.)

Trump is privatizing VA Hospitals?

I know that you are retarded, but no. Trump is allowing veterans to use their VA coverage to go outside the system to see private doctors.

DA!

When does the other shoe drop?

You know, like starving public schools until they are gone, and you have Privatized.

And if you think I'm retarded, what must you think of the Presidunce.?

lyle

If so, there's your third.

Dammit!

The thing I like about conservatives is they are an open book. When they do something that looks kind, look under the bed.

Black and white is ez pz. Grey is harder to figure.

On occasion, I have called Obama a Presidunce.

I used it a lot with dubya, but I think I've Trumped that in the last 60 days.

Tom Brady is sitting out the WH visit?

Lol..family pressure.

First line of paragraph 3 is the lede.

Pruitt's sights are too low...I'd cut 90%. Better yet, I'd reduce it to 252 people total. Five per state plus Pruitt and his secretary.

Dave (in MA)

O'Reilly might be getting SHITCANNED™ but the same behavior never took down Letterman.

(Although when the gap-toothed douche took some time off, his first fill-in was Mr. Put The Roofies In The Jello himself)

If you're looking for a really tv great TV show to watch there's nothing better then Billions. One of my all time fav shows.

Porch,

I'll try to get a Judge's ruling on that, but I don't want to give you too much rope on that just yet:)

Meanwhile, I just watched the Gronk's interruption of Sean Spicer's Presser. I guess the meme from last week that #SeanSpicerMustResign!" is past it’s “do not use” date.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Correct, TLG. His mother has cancer and is doing poorly.

I can see the headlines if Brady showed up: "Drumpf demanded Brady abandon his dying mother!"

You know I am right.

Clarice Feldman

I don't like either Letterman or BOR but Letterman never posed as Mr. Moral Middle Man.

Maybe BIR can use the break to study economics.

Rocco

I don't know what the cells look like in Shirley where Hernandez was being held but the cells where I worked were 6x8' with solid steel doors that would slide to open or close. From the inside, the very edge of the door would fit into a lip with a space big enough to wedge a rubber flip flop into, making it very difficult to open from the outside. When I looked into the cell and saw the inmate hanging just as the Hernandez suicide was described, my heart skipped a beat. I was pretty rattled trying to get the door opened to cut the inmate down because he had used his flip flops as described above. When I finally did get it open, I tried to hold him up with one arm while attempting to get my fingers under the ripped bed sheet with the other. Luckily, a nurse responded quickly to my call for help so I held him up while she cut the sheet from his neck with a pair of those safety scissors. Just another day in the hole. I can see how Hernandez made it difficult to get into his cell. The ones who are serious never let on...they just do it!

daddy

First line of paragraph 3 is the lede.

Paragraph 3: Only 6.5 percent of EPA employees are "essential," according to the government's own calculations when it faced a shutdown in 2013. At the time, just 1,069 employees (of the 15,000 employees at the agency) were deemed necessary to continue working during the 16 days the government closed...

Marlene

Brady's mother is dying of cancer. The only game she attended during the season was the Superbowl.

Rocco,

Why was he in Shirley? Don't most of the really bad guys go to Cedar Junction?

DA!

A lot of Patriot Mom's must be ill.

My favorite Patriot

As certain as Davis was about the righteousness of their cause, he was equally pessimistic about his own chances for survival. Several days before that fateful dawn, he and his wife had returned home from an excursion to discover that a large owl, a symbol of death, had flown into the house and perched on Davis’s favorite gun, which hung over the mantel. No one was allowed to disturb the brooding presence, which stayed for days and was interpreted by the captain as an omen that, if the struggle became a full-pitched battle, he would not survive.

Tim Tebow and Tom Brady were worried about teammate Aaron Hernandez.

Tim Tebow's Columbia (SC) Fireflies beat our Rome Braves on "Kids Day" today. Teebow played left field and was surrounded by adoring young fans wherever he went.

Jim Eagle

TLG,

Have never seen Billions but I think they film it in Southampton. I remember seeing directional signs last summer and the film crew in the fall using Cooper's Beach parking lot. Plus the crew once did a very late dinner at the Plaza Cafe that the owner posted on his facebook page. Good friend of mine.

Appalled

Rocco:

Not reading your opening (My favorite patriot), I though you were talking about Jefferson Davis...Yikes!

Rocco

I'm only guessing but they move them around for different reasons, usually when they cause some kind of grief for the institution. He may have threatened someone or maybe he was threatened by a gang. I seem to recall he was in a bit of trouble somewhere so maybe that's it.

Jane, I'm so happy to tell you that my youngest, the one you helped me straighten out, just closed on a beautiful home in Berlin. There was a time when I thought the only house he would be moving into was the Big House. I'll never forget you for your friendship and advice. I Love Jane!

narciso

Though Damian lewis's previous role on homeland was better, once you realize what Bobby axe did to get to the top, it's very hard to relate, but they made the bhaara manage equally unlikable so

Rocco

Appalled, well I was born in Texas so I guess that makes me a Confederate by birth but that's the wrong war, lol!

Captain Hate

Maybe Rupert's brats will fill the 8 pm slot with a conservative magic show: Penn & Yeller.

Jane

Aww Rocco, you filled my heart. Congrats to one successful son!

I heard it was the guys in Concord who get to decide who goes where. They probably loved Hernandez for being a Pat!

That's wonderful, Rocco (and Jane). JOM is an awesome place.

Last PT session coming up - range of motion. Talk about hurting. No pain, no gain. But first those percocet please to make it more tolerable:)

Amazing Rocco.

I recall that our most famous incarcerated Alaskan Serial Murderer up here hung himself in 2012. Just googling I also see that we had a prisoner hang himself up here in 2014, 2015, and 2016. That has to clobber emotionally the guy who finds the 'hangee.' I sure don't envy you your experience, but thank you so much for sharing it with us.

Old time JOMer's may recall me posting this macabre but fascinating write-up from Mark Twain about his take on a Public Hanging he observed in 1868, which he then forwarded to a Chicago paper, The Chicago Republican:

Word for Word/Mark Twain; An Itinerant Humorist In the Hangman's Yard

It was titled "Novel Entertainment" and begins with the words "I never had witnessed an execution before...

Rocco: "Jane, I'm so happy to tell you that my youngest, the one you helped me straighten out, just closed on a beautiful home in Berlin. There was a time when I thought the only house he would be moving into was the Big House. I'll never forget you for your friendship and advice. I Love Jane!"

Wherein Rocco illustrates why, in spite of our occasional dustups, Regular JOMers would, as Clarice reminded us a few weeks ago, give up kidneys for each other.

Just saw Speaker of the House Paul Ryan's comments on Tax Reform taking until at least the end of Summer and maybe a lot later than that.

I'm just glad Paul Ryan isn't running in the Runoff against Oskoff in Georgia, as I think Paul Ryan would lose.

caro

Jane has given wonderful counsel to more than one JOMmer over the years. That is great news, Rocco.

I see I need to comment more so I will be invited on KK's JOM crooze.

Big news is I now have my CCW permit and will be taking two days of handgun training near Las Vegas in a couple of weeks!

Yippee!!!

From Clarice's 03:05:

Carter Page: “I look forward to the Privacy Act of 1974 lawsuit that I plan to file in response to the civil rights violations by Obama administration appointees last year…The discovery process will be of great value to the United States, as our nation hears testimony from them under oath, and we receive disclosure of the documents which show what exactly was done in 2016.”

MAGA!

Congrats Caro! Enjoy the training.

Hi Caro,

Will you be skiing on the 4th of July or is your snow-pack disappearing like ours is?

lyle

Well, as long as we're all happy family feeling right now, I'll take this moment to say that Beasts emailed me today with a link to some guitar porn: Bourgeois Guitars. He's on JOM sabbatical for a bit longer. I didn't inquire about kidney availability if I needed one... ;)

lyle

Way to go, caro!

All the effort I took to get my concealed permit went poof this last year when my state essentially did away with the need to even have one.

Old Lurker

Lol.

daddy

BTW Caro,

I see from Park City's History page that Mark Twain stayed at The Kimble Hotel when he took the stage coach to Salt Lake City in the early 1860's. It's a tad confusing because I didn't think Park City was officially founded until after the War by a bunch of ex-Yankee gold diggers, yet your Museum page says Twain stayed at the Kimble Hotel on his way to visit Brigham Young. Please feel free to clear that up for us, and if possible and speaking for all JOMer's, I would love to see a painting you may have done of the old Kimble Hotel if such a thing exists:)

“Roughing it” at the Kimball Hotel

Writer Samuel Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, stopped at the Kimball Hotel for supper in the early 1860s He described the scene in his book Roughing It: “And there was one person that looked like a gentleman—Heber C. Kimball’s son, tall and well made, and thirty years old, perhaps. A lot of slatternly women flitted hither and thither in a hurry, with coffee-pots, plates of bread, and other appurtenances to supper...”

So if you'd please "flitter hither and thither in a hurry" and post that painting I'd be much obliged:)

Howie Carr worked with BOR in Boston years ago. Howie always got along with him,but said BOR has always been abrasive and everyone hated him.
Also,Howie is going to have the Bristol County (MA) sheriff on next hour to discuss Hernandez.

Buckeye

Sure glad MeAgain bolted before BOR got the boot.

Fox would probably have given her 2 hours.

lyle

I haven't watched BORe in years but this harassment charge against him seems awfully thin.

DebinNC

"she and other GOP senators are questioning why President Trump is spending so much time away from the White House"

Uh, maybe because of several Secret Service failures at keeping potential evildoers out of the WH? Maybe because the place isn't yet secure from listening ears? Maybe because Trump isn't flying around the world on vanity trips like the BOzos, but to his own home in FL?

Old Lurker

And Joni...April has but 30 days, and Trump has and will work every one of them. Congress is working seven days in the entire month.

Femall.

"...(R-Iowa) said she and other GOP senators are questioning..."

Marlene

daddy,I know you are a huge fan of Twain. I think we all are. What do you think about his collection of "Angelfish" in his old age? Two of his daughters died and another daughter was estranged,so maybe he needed comfort in his old age. Just imagine the disapproval he would receive now,having an entourage of young girls. It was a more innocent time.

daddy

Wish I could trademark "Killing Bill O'Reilly" since we know that's going to be the headline and title of a hundred Lefty columns and books starting tomorrow.

Captain Hate

Speaking of disappointing RINO skirts, how did the performance of Kelly Ayotte in assisting Gorsuch navigating the Senate work out as far as a reclamation project?

Fox too.
