Holy cow TM!

Here's big man De Niro and his shoes:

anon ( AKA common man )

I got 2. Facebook is really goofed up...

Ralph L

If you type like someone here, it can't be hate speech.

Ralph L

De Niro planned to go to Houston to help.

Sbw

Does hate speech require a judgment or is a statement of fact sufficient? Is Facebook a science denier? Will Facebook consume itself by the tail?

henry

Does he get to 5' wearing those daddy?

daddy

I don't think Indians in general stink half as bad as South Koreans. Every south Korean on the peninsula stinks to high heaven, and the grossest is when the country is freezing to death and they come up into the cockpit when it's minus 40 F and breath that awful stench all over us. Yuck and gross and Pee You! Japs don't stink. Chinese don't stink. Hindu's don't stink, but boy do Koreans stink.

So am I a racist or a realist?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Cavuto is a stealth Never Trumper who hides it but constantly asks snide questions.

He followed Shep Smith, who today informed us that the Values Voters who oppose GAY MARRIAGE are a hate group, according to SPLC.

That was when I decided to do housework, and came back in in time to hear Cavuto going after Betsy McCoughey, who sounded to me like she was PO'd.

daddy

I can't open the NYTimes story. Can someone paste the other few questions so I can know if I'm a full blown racist or just a closet racist?

henry

Anita Sarkeesian is a fat cow.

Hate speech, as it compares innocent cows to a pile of manure.

Sbw

Cavuto's show is about cavuto, not news. Constantly hit the button. Can't imagine supporting his effort at a "conservative" podcast.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

ChiTown lurker sent me a link to a 2014 article revealing that Maria Shriver had an affair with MATTHEW DOWD before Arnie's secret affair was revealed!

MATTHEW DOWD!

I honestly thought that guy was gay. And here he is pontificating like he's a moral compass or something.

Good grief! Matthew Dowd. He's not even a Beta. He's an Omega, I think.

Momto2

So today the President referred to the "Arabian Gulf" instead of the "Persian Gulf" - wonder what the mullahs think about that? Ha!

Tom Bowler

Maria Shriver and Matthew Dowd? Sounds like a match made in heaven.

exdemocrat

Jane - the $$ are payable on removal, not just impeachment, per Wictor

Momto2

The President's week in review:
*He ended CPP
*He stopped illegal subsidies
*He enacted market-based health insurance reforms
*He declined to certify Iran
*He got out of UNESCO
*Pakistan freed hostages
*NFL/Goodell still on the ropes over anthem fight
*Stock market up highest point since FDR
*SCOTUS threw out travel ban case

Pretty good week I'd say! Imagine what he could accomplish if Congress would cooperate!

daddy

Here's Harvey Weinstein's good buddy and make believe tough guy Robert (platform shoes) De Niro telling us how he'd like to punch Trump in the face.

Tough guy De Niro: "I mean he's so blatantly stupid. He's a punk. He's a dog. He's a pig. He's a con, a Bull Shit Artist, a mutt who doesn't know what he's talking about. He doesn't do his homework. He doesn't care...

Anybody heard this piece of shit of a fraud saying squat about wanting to punch pig Weinstein out?

JimNorCal

Momto2: "Imagine what he could accomplish if Congress would cooperate!"

Or imagine what he could accomplish if elderly SCOTUS judge(s) in diminishing health would just move on to their "reward" already (is that euphemistic enough to avoid being hate speech?)

Ralph L

At least Dowd doesn't look like a skull.

Tom Bowler

(is that euphemistic enough to avoid being hate speech?)

It's love speech. I love it.

anon ( AKA common man )

De Niro punching anyone in the face is laughable. The runt would need to hide behind a very large security guard immediately to avoid taking a beating that would knock the stuffings out of him...

Momto2

Yes - JimNorCal - let's plan a BIG retirement party for dozens of Congressmen/women AND SC Justices! I'll even bake a cake :)

Some are *so* obviously past their use by date, it's embarrassing! Someone needs to take them aside and say, "Listen honey - you need to move on and let someone else have a chance."

So am I a racist or a realist?

That was regarding what I took to be one of the staples of the Korean diet, some fermented something or other that is widely regarded as smelly. Kim chi!?!

Anyway, stew on this: Would "Many Indians eat a lot of curry and smell awful" also be hate speech?

How about "Anyone who eats a lot of curry, which includes a lot of Indians, will smell awful"?

Wow, Fun With Hate on a Friday afternoon. New frontiers in blogging...

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I don't mind the smell of curry. I have never smelled kim chi, but having smelled my dad's homemade sauerkraut after the jars exploded in our cellar, I can only imagine.

Clarice Feldman

It's kimchi friday.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

I sat next to a very attractive Indian woman, probably about 25 years old on a plane from Europe. I literally had to hold my nose for the entire flight. It was simply amazing how awful she smelled.

-peter

Here you go, daddy: (in parts)
Have you ever seen a post on Facebook that you were surprised wasn’t removed as hate speech? Have you flagged a message as offensive or abusive but the social media site deemed it perfectly legitimate?

Users on social media sites often express confusion about why offensive posts are not deleted. Paige Lavender, an editor at HuffPost, recently described her experience learning that a vulgar and threatening message she received on Facebook did not violate the platform’s standards.

Here are a selection of statements based on examples from a Facebook training document and real-world comments found on social media. Most readers will find them offensive. But can you tell which ones would run afoul of Facebook’s rules on hate speech?

Ralph L

What shoe is dropping this Friday?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Wow! Greg Gutfeld willhave Tippi Hedren on his show this weekend to talk about her experience working with Alfred Hitchcock!

I posted her tweet earlier today.

I will make sure I catch that. She starred in "The Birds" and "Marnie" and then disappeared.

Someone should ask Sean Connery (one of his first roled in Hollywood) what he noticed during the production of "Marnie."

Clarice Feldman

So--was Trump wrong when he said that women will let you grab them "by the pussy" if you are a celebrity?

jimmyk on iPhone

By way of nothing, anyone else think the Nats got shafted by the umpires last night? On the pickoff play, none of the replays I saw showed the first baseman clearly making the tag when Lobaton's foot momentarily came off the base. Maybe the umps has access to some other angle. But it has to be clear to warrant overriuling the safe call. And on the passed ball, the play should have been called dead when the battrer hit the catcher in the head with his bat.

I don't have a stake in who won, just like to see better umpiring.

Clarice Feldman

Hillary--still nuts:http://freebeacon.com/politics/clinton-dismisses-sexual-misconduct-claims-husband-litigated/

-peter from my phone

Sorry daddy but type pad crapped out on me. Trust me it's av stupid quiz.

JimNorCal

I love Kim Chi but if it oozes out your pores I imagine it’s not pleasant for others. Lots of classic jokes from bygone decades about WASPs reacting to Italians who’d consumed lots of garlic. Also Vietnamese sauce (“nguc mam”?, pronounced Nuke Mum) can be a killer.

anon ( AKA common man )

Was the unnamed Senator who wanted Collins to stay in the Senate named Schumer?

anon ( AKA common man )

Jane

My experience on planes with Europeans was hardly better. They just dont seem to bath regularly.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

ANon (AKA common man),

McCain was pleased she was staying, He considers her a great senator. It was on Twitter today.

henry

McCain wants Collins in the Senate.

anon ( AKA common man )

And finally and I did not see the game, but if a batter hits a catcher with his bat during a swing, that is always catcher interference.

daddy at LuLu's

It's kimchi friday.

This place stinks😝

I am going to refuse to speak ill of the terminally ill. If I say that 10 times, perhaps my thoughts will pass...

Miss Marple the Deplorable

It's wine hour here. I am on my second glass.

Frau Edith Steingehirn

lyle - yes, it's wine hour: McCain's a giant pain in the drain.

I wish we could send ice to Hillary! so she could put some "on it."
What a vicious maroon!

anon ( AKA common man )

Sitting chatting with my 89 year old father this past weekend, I mentioned to him that I had to use two clothes pins to allow me to pull the lever for him in 2008. My father who is even more conservative than I, just nodded and said quietly " me too."

 joan

Kimchi smells like a dead body.

I was on a health kick a couple of years ago and ordered one from a Korean place in California -- it arrived 'next day' in a styrofoam cooler, and even unopened, I could smell it. Being stupid, I was curious (thinking, it can't be that much worse if I just peek inside, but it could -- and did). Looked like a pale whitish/green head bobbing around in yellowish liquid inside a plastic bag, and it stank. I yelped, put it outside on the patio, and when my husband got home, I asked him to do me a favor and get rid of it. He shook his head, and said, 'only if you promise never to order something like this again.' I promised. :)

I know I've told this on jom before, but kimchi made a bigly impression on me.

I've never met or sat by a Korean on an airplane, so can't offer an opinion on the aroma 'thingy', but I would never disagree with a man of experience like daddy. :)

Momto2

I have to agree that there are certain cultures that are worse than others. As a former flight attendant, working the coach section out of some areas could be olfactorily challenging!


It's interesting that Europe and especially France has been known to produce some of the finest perfumes.

Who would put on expensive perfume without first bathing?

I will bet there is more to this than what we have been told.

I better get busy opening a bottle, then! Speaking of which, tomorrow is the better half's b-day. I'm footing the bill for six for dinner at Michels Christiana in Ketchum (SV). Bringing two bottles, '05 & '06, of Araujo Cabernet out of my cellar. Fortunately, two of the six don't drink...😎

Las Vegas police now say there was no 6-minute gap between first shots, concert massacre -

...On Friday, Lombardo said that he stood by providing the 9:59 p.m. time, which he said "wasn't inaccurate when I provided it," but said that he was told that the time had been written by someone in a security log.

Upon investigation, he said, police learned that Campos first encountered a barricaded door on the 32nd floor at 9:59 p.m., and that he was fired upon by Paddock "in close proximity to" 10:05 p.m., when police say the mass shooting began.

"He attempted to relay that information via his radio and it was confirmed because he also relayed that information via his cellphone," Lombardo said. "So the timeline associated to both of those sources have been verified."...

I hired a French guy and put him in the same office with an American woman. After a few times passing by on a Friday (n.b., I'm pretty sure most French people don't bathe during the week; only on weekends), I finally took her aside one day and asked how she liked sharing an office with whats-his-name.

She looked me right in the eye and said everything was fine.

The office reeked bad on Fridays.

Cynical of me to say, but yes and no. If there seems something to be gained, yes. I'm surmising that Oscars were gained by women letting themselves be grabbed. Would they have won them anyway? Maybe. Would they have been given the opportunity anyway? Maybe not.

Mercy 0 - Hampton Bays 0 at the half.

I had 800 Koreans work for me in Indonesia. Separate island for residence. Own dining and kitchen. The odor from cooking Kim Chibfor 800 was overwhelming.

Game restart. Bye.

Good luck to the Mercy team JIB!

Hillary first introduced herself to America on 60 Minutes, where she strongly claimed not to be a "Stand by my man" kinda gal. That was then I guess.

Catsmeat

Re last thread--once had a Stealth Bomber circle at very low altitude over my son's soccer game--it was part of an airshow at the Lincoln airfield and the YMCA soccer field was a convenient fifteen miles or so to the south--boy, that thing moved slowly--a real behemoth! Actually, we need a name for a colossal air creature--behemoths are for land (Coleridge thought the behemoth was a hippo) while leviathans are for the water (whales, krakens, and so on; both come from the Book of Job).

Captain Hate

An Italian told me that South Korea reeks of garlic. Otoh I've been in Korean restaurants that didn't stink.

I shared an office right out of school with a Brit engineer who had just arrived stateside.

Wasn't too bad until he joined a traveling Rugby team.

He got a clue when we started leaving Right Guard on his desk.

Back in the late 80's, we were i line at The Haunted House at Walt Disney World.

Behind us wee a bunch of French people. The two women had on bustiers with unshaven arm pits. ALL of them put out BO which was overwhelming.

My son, then in high school, leaned over and told me he was NEVER going to France. LOL!

Chthulu doesn't have wings.

Dragons are the big flying things, or Rocs.

Ralph L

I don't understand how people stay in the building when cabbage is cooked without spices.

Catsmeat

Yes, Chthulu might be roughly the size of Manhattan--or bigger, given the first story--definitely not airborne (especially as Chthulu is no bird-bone).

Ralph L

Did Trump actually admit to anything besides kissing, which could easily be social air kissing without the air?

Clarice Feldman

Actually, I loke kimchi and it's very healthful. Just like naturally fermented sauerkraut is. Hey--I wonder if not bathing helps europeans stay slim(mer)--better bacteria aura.

I used to go to the IBM site in Essonnes, France. Same deal. Mondays & Tuesdays were fine, but get to the end of the week and it's pretty smelly there.

Great people, though. I'd been there many times. Wine in the IBM cafeteria! Other stuff like rabbit, brains, etc.

After lunch, a very strong coffee and a long walk.

After work, a truly great dinner, and no talking about work allowed.

Great people, if a little rank by Friday.

So Philip K Dick named his daughter Isa, as in Isa Dick?

My favorite sister in Law was named Anita Cox, but Isa Dick? Seriously?

At least he didn't go whole hog like the infamous Governor Hogg of Texas, and his daughter Ima.

Has a cause for the fires been determined?

The major out of control fires in SoCal predominantly started on federal land where a "let it burn, federal fire-heroes get hazard pay" policy led to them becoming out of control behemoths long before CalFire was allowed to do anything.

The smaller Catalytic Complex fires I was wanking about yesterday were solved by the 5 o'clock news without fail.

Reporter: "Was this another catalytic converter fire?"

Soon to be retired at 45 Captian Pension Hero: "yep."

I have yet to hear the cause of the NorCal mess.

Who has Mueller and his team interviewed besides Trump people? I haven't seen anything indicating they are talking to democrats.

Posted by: Sue | October 12, 2017 at 12:15 PM

I forgot to go back and check on the comments to my very hopeful "Trump has a kill shot lined up" comment from yesterday.

It is possible, Sue, their first mission is to investigate (and clear, because he already knows there's no THERE there) President Trump. That is worst-case scenario for Democrats; they're own folks essentially did the investigating and found squadoosh!

Then, it's on to Clinton, Inc. and the Obama Admin illegalities. Won't that be fun?

Henry, Mueller does have some honor in him. We're all corruptible. Many of us seek salvation and redemption *after* we have been corrupted the most.

Mueller? Perhaps. Yes, it certainly appears a longshot. That, however, seems to be the way Trump not only operates but . . . this is the way he wins. Isn't it?

My partner and host out on the Faith and Patience Portico, MM, agrees. Nuff said.
