Jack is Back!

From today’s world we live in.........

All the members of the company's Board of Directors were called into the Chairman's office, one after another, until only Ted, the junior member, was left sitting outside.


Finally it was his turn to be summoned. Ted entered the office to find the Chairman and the other four Directors seated at the far end of the boardroom table.Ted was instructed to stand at the other end of the table, which he did.

The Chairman looked Ted squarely in the eye, and with a stern voice, he asked:

"Have you ever had sex with my secretary, Miss Floyd?"
"Oh, no, sir, positively not...!" Ted replied.
"Are you absolutely sure...?" asked the chairman.
"Honest, I've never been close enough to even touch her...!"
"You'd swear to that...?"
"Yes, I swear I've never had sex with Miss Floyd, anytime, anywhere…"insisted Ted.

"Good. Then YOU fire her."

Sorry, I didn't look at the date. I wish people wouldn't tweet links to old articles without making it plain they are old!

Good Morning. MM @ 7:l0,very interesting! When the Puritans punished someone from the community,they were banned and sent to the wilds of Maine.
Here's a history question...why wasn't the 1820 decision called the Missouri/Maine compromise?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Look at this: the Daily Mail made an entire story out of President Trump's tweet about playing golf with Tiger Woods:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5114179/Trump-play-golf-quickly-Tiger-Woods.html

The White House seldom admits when Trump is playing golf

But the president tweeted the news himself on Friday, saying he would hit the links with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson

But he insisted that he would do it 'quickly' so he could get back to work

Trump last played with Tiger Woods last December; the former world number-one player said he was 'impressed' with 'how far he hits the ball at 70 years old'

Sheriff David Clarke shreds ‘carnival barker’ Maxine Waters for praising pervert John Conyers

“I am NOT AT ALL surprised that carnival barker Maxine Waters last week praised colleague John Conyers as having respect for women. I find it more surprising that she found time to stop her inane “Impeach 45” crusade to do it. WHAT A BUNCH OF BUFFOONS,” he tweeted.

Is he a pervert? What did he do again?

On Monday, BuzzFeed published a report that said Conyers' office paid a female aide more than $27,000 as part of a confidentiality agreement to settle a complaint.
A second woman accused Conyers of sexual misconduct, outlined in court documents whose details were first published Tuesday by BuzzFeed.

Conyers' longtime scheduler filed a complaint in federal court earlier this year alleging "sexual advances in the form of inappropriate comments and touches" that were so frequent "that they created a hostile work environment." She says in the filings, which were obtained by ABC News, that she's known Conyers since 2006 and began working as a scheduler in 2015. The woman alleges the repeated harassment led her to suffer “insomnia, anxiety, depression and chest pains.” She eventually requested sick leave in 2016, but when she wouldn't provide medical documents explaining the reason for her sick leave, her position was terminated. The woman says in the filings she didn't want to provide the documents because of an “atmosphere of mistrust.”

And on Wednesday night, a third woman, Melanie Sloan, went on the record with the Washington Post saying Conyers verbally abused her and once summoned her to his office, where she found him dressed in his underwear.

“I was pretty taken aback to see my boss half-dressed," Sloan told the newspaper. "I turned on my heel and I left,” she said.

I guess that last one was kind of perverted, but people are throwing a lot of words around these days. "Sexual misconduct" seems to be the catch-all phrase for anything from making a comment to forcible rape. Hard to keep track!

Extraneus,

I get frustrated as well because they are conflating everything from flirting clumsily to rape.

i would be more grateful today if neighbors were less sure no one will see them in their bath robes if they just run that one little errand to take out the garbage or retrieve something from a car.

perhaps it would be easier if the bathrobes wee cuter. I would appreciate though not knowing some things. It's what i get for being an early riser who skipped going to see justice league last night.

I don't know if anyone linked this before but Pat Caddell has his finger on the pulse of things as much as anyone, and the donks refuse to listen to him:

His description of the 2012 Romney campaign is bang spot on. I think that was the point in time that my disgust with the GOP reached the current level.

I go out in my pajamas, sans robe nearly every day.
It never occurred to me that would offend someone.

Far more of me is covered up in my pjs than when I'm in gym shorts
and t shirt the rest of the day.

Let me guess---you don't like men in shorts, and one should refrain from doing errands in yoga pants.

Jack is Back,

I didn't know that beagles are used for vivisection and now, thanks to you, that I know, I am starting specific daily prayer for that situation starting immediately.

Sundance at TCT thought the Friedman article was weaselly in that he didn't give President Trump any credit, when without Trump's full support, the plans of the King and Crown Prince of KSA would not be happening.

Hah, I had a fun chat with a pal in Santa Cruz yesterday. She mentioned that she ordered a cooked turkey from Whole Paycheck in the morning and when she went over to pick it up, she threw on a hoody sweatshirt over her shorts and flip flops. After she got her place in line for pick up, she glanced around and noticed she was over dressed compared to everyone else standing there.

rse

no i like men in shorts unless ill-fitting and i run errands in shorts and yoga pants. I just don't want to know my neighbors run around in such unattractive attire while looking right and left to make sure no one is looking. One is apparent when I am in kitchen making tea and the other when I am at computer when my peripheral vision notices motion.

cornbread dressing and cranberry sauce make a lovely post thanksgiving breakfast.

Flathead is dumb about almost everything except self promotion and he knows what appeals to his core audience. Frankly what DJT has accomplished in Saudi Arabia has guaranteed that all the shitheads advising the Bushes look like idiots to anyone paying attention.

Re the spiritual awakening with certain drugs, I've been a longtime student of the subject without actually partaking even recreationally (except for a little pot in the old days). LSD, certain mushrooms and maybe Ayahuasca are clearly in the realm of having an affect, assuming you are a candidate and the environment is properly arranged. The most interesting stories came from the mushrooms. Terrance McKenna told of meeting the same scary higher beings any time (or anyone) took a dose of a particular mushroom. Gummint researchers in the 50s before LSD became a 'thing', discovered certain individuals were cured of alcohol addiction by getting a greater sense of their world.

I think my hesitation about ever doing any tripping was a combination of unknown quality of the product along with the legal constraints.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

That Bannon/Caddell transcript was really something! Thanks for linking it!

cheerleader

Captain Hate,

His article was worth reading though, because it included many specific examples and details about the big changes that have already happened, are happening now, and will be happening in KSA's future.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

cheerleader,

Of course Friedman was weaselly, but the interesting thing is that he was weaselly while saying the policy was a good thing, when it is 180 from what Obama and Bush did.

What it said to me is that the policy of the Crown Prince has a good chance of working and Friedman wants to be on the winning side.

 narcisoyea

Friedman got his signature story the shatila fratricide, wrong, as to the perpetrator which in turn framed the Beirut bombings as somehow justified, only widlanski has called him on it.

Miss Marple,

I was thinking earlier this morning, that if TF wants to stay on the good side of the Saudi admin, and retain access, he'll have to refrain from making nasty noises about their very good friend, President Donald J. Trump.

Imo.

The death toll at that mosque bombing in Egypt has climbed to 184.

How is privacy handled when donating to a fund?

Can the donations be anonymous in terms of our name, email address etc.??

 narcisoyea

Now why was Friedman mistake significant because the real perpetrator alias hobeika likely had motive and was an effective frame against Israel, he ultimately defected to the Syrians after he 'botched' a hit on fadlallah, the inspiration for hezbollah.

From CH's 8:38 link:

"It was basically to discover what was there, and it was the most startling research that's ever been done. It has been public for some time. The press has never paid attention. The political class won't pay attention. But what we found from the beginning was the level of discontent in this country was beyond anything measurable, and I believe worse than any time that we have ever seen in our country."

No shit, Dick Tracy. All Pat had to do was come here and read threads and comments for a week and saved all that trouble:)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jack,

Most of the people who post here are farily comfortable in their lives. Imagine how discontented the average guys are, the ones who are stuggling with Obamacare's cost, stagnant wages or (not as much now but back during the election) unemployment, the deterioration in schools, crime, etc.

If you ask me, the establishment should take their undeserved retirement and be grateful that a mob didn't descend on Washington.

Here is another thing I think: the reason they don't want to leave, and the reason they hang on and attempt to stymie President Trump is that they are afraid if they leave, worse things than what we already know will come out. Look at how we found out about the sex scandal slush fun. Now think whatever other crap is hidden in their budgets and their "committees"!

-peter

Great to read all the above stories about the many variations on Thanksgiving cooking. I'm with jimmyk, cooking turkey shouldn't be that hard, unless you over-think it. I have a smoker, but would never try to smoke something as big as a full turkey in it, although maybe in the future I'll try to smoke a turkey breast.


Enjoy Black Friday--I am going to try to get outdoors and do a lot of yard work and other chores while the sun is shining.

Jack is Back!

-peter,

Ironically, we went to a dinner party last Saturday where Chris Cuomo's MIL/FIL were guests. Very nice people, the FIL chairs the Southampton Association.

I find these events so momentous because I believe that they are leading to full peace in the Middle East during President Trump's tenure.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I have been doing laundry this morning. I am going to leave around noon and drive out to the lot to unload my car. My son will go with me but I am going to drive, as his glasses were broken in the accident. He says he thinks his shave kit with contacts is in the car (it had the last load of stuff he removed from the place he was renting) so hopefully we will find those. He has the lenses of his glasses so those can go to Wal-Mart for cheap frames next week.

There's an option to be anonymous on the fund page, but I think Porch can see the real names regardless.

Mine came out great last night. Covered the skin with butter with some herbs underneath, cooked to 165. It took longer than 30 minutes per pound at 250 degrees, though. More like 45 minutes per.

Do you follow @ThomasWictor on Twitter? He has been following events in the Middle East since before the President's trip. He's really interesting and is of the same thinking as you are.

thanks for more info, Extraneous. I trust Porchlight, so that's not a problem. I just don't want there to be a public page somewhere listing everyone's email address.

I'm of the opinion that we should descend on DC.

RE. Iranian military buildup in Syria. We should do everything possible to stop Israel from disrupting this buildup. After all. The build up is probably being funded using US (Obama) supplied money.

cheerleader

Miss Marple,

I just know of Wictor third-hand, because I don't twitter. A lot of people at TCT love Wictor, and post many of his tweets in the daily presidential thread, so I read those.

My main influence is definitely Sundance, who guided the Treepers through the many ups and downs of Trump's campaign. I trust him because he turned out to be right about everything. Maybe Wictor is Sundance?

The site Porch linked yesterday at 2:20? refuses my request to connect, but it does start to load but is otherwise blank?

Is there a secret handshake or something?

Porchlight

It's not working for me either, darn it.

 narcisoyea

In he isn't, I think there is a dangling participle in their Davod, yes the triumph of bashirs regime who were trained by the soviet's and subsequently Iran, and they in turned trained the PLO, means hezbollah is stronger at thud margins, although wictor takes issue with that. But its better than if the salafi proxies has taken over like in Libya.

The pinkos are scared of #metoo because they apparently believed all their own hype about how they respect women and conservatives use the Alley Oop method of courtship.
As always happens with progs, reality is intruding on their fantasies and they don't like it one bit so they have to deny reality...pronto...again.

Caddell was on BB radio last week talking to Bannon and said that MAGA was the best slogan he has ever heard in his life time.

It communicates so much in four simple words and all of it positive: nostalgia for a better past, ability for improvement and controlling the fate of the country. It hits notes which appeal to people who desire a better future.
