"And hopefully no politics!"

i take a different approach, James, and insist that at least as much politics is discussed as i had to endure throughout Obama's reign.

of course, that may be why my munchkin and I have been uninvited by everyone we know that used to believe in 'conversation' ;-)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I see on Twitter that Old Yeller will have a weekly show on Fox.



The complaint from Ms. Zervos is here. I won't replicate it all here because it would inflame this comment section to no good purpose. The Billy Bush tape is integral to it (see paragraphs 1, 4-6, 45 and 46)



I'm listening to a woman at the bar mention that she has 38 people for dinner tomorrow night and 54 coming in for Thanksgiving. Uh...

Enough to drive you to drink.

At least it is past noon:)


Just me, Mrs., Jr., Buckeyette and our dog Poogan (those who know Charleston will recognize where the name came from).

Doesn't mean things won't get out of hand:)

President Donald J. Trump and @FLOTUS Melania Participate in the Pardoning of the National Thanksgiving Turkey at the White House.


(Video at link, along with a nice little speech by the President.)



Yes, differences in degree very much matter, and I wonder all of it is going to go down in the end. Most of the people reported, though, have many multiple offenses against decency. The ones where there is question about the level of vileness are Moore, Franken, and Poppy Bush.

Captain Hate

Only Mrs H and me for Thanksgiving.


Thanks for the update, Appalled.

Why isn't Zervos pursuing a suit related to the actual sexual harassment?

Beasts of England

Well, heck. I've been at a Thanksgiving with about two dozen and I was thinking we had outlawed cruel and unusual punishment. :)

The same lady later added that more than forty are staying at her (rather large) house. We're entering Dante territory now!!


I think my mom and my older brother will be outnumbered (slightly) by Trump voters this year. Not sure how my aunt in FL voted but I'm gonna try to find out.

Captain Hate

Dear God, was that a pig that just flew past my window?


Jim Eagle

More on the Argentine sub and the assets we have committed.




I don't know. It might be a statute of limitations issue, since the alleged assault happened in 2007, and the alleged defamation happened in 2016.


I just read that Rosatom, the regulatory body of the Russian nuclear complex also built the Bushehr nuclear reactors in Iran and supplies Iran with uranium.

Hmm, although Sessions would object to my use of the phrase, "it looks like", it looks like Hillary gave our uranium to Russia for personal gain and Obama gave Iran the dough to buy it.


 Duda: progressive and loving it!

Ugh,I just watched Roy Moore enthusiastically recounting the first time he met his wife and I almost threw up.

Apparently,Rapey Roy hung out at the local dance recital for little girls and that's where he met his future wife,little 15 year old Kayla(puke).

Yeah, Roy,real romantic.

So,it's now clear that we are divided by morality,not politics. See you on the battlefield,deplorables.

Just 3 of us plus 3 beagles for Thanksgiving.

In Belgium, before my MIL passed, they would get 31 for Christmas dinner. It was my job to go up to the storage on the 3rd floor and bring down the 3 extra table leaves so we could extend it to seat 24. the 14 adults and 10 older kids. The other kids ate in the daily informal dining area.

No thanksgiving in Belgium:) but politics especially American politics was always on the agenda. If we didn't exist they'd have nothing to talk about since Belgian politics is pretty boring. It took them over 560 days to form the existing government.

Jane - not "in"


Where in Florida?


The Billy Bush tape was 2005. What is the statute of limitations on locker room talk?

 Duda rides again!

"What is the statute of limitations on locker room talk"

I don't know. What is the statute of limitations of being a fucking decent human being?

What is the statute of limitations on thinking it's o.k if your president admits to sexually assaulting numerous women?

Is it one year? Two? Is there a lawyer in the group?


Coming to a town near you "Derail the Jail. These idiots want to end jails (and give criminals nice condos instead). Madison. The birthplace of the term "White Privilege."

Old Lurker

Just the two of us.

Kids and Grandkids...useless.


What is the statute of limitations on thinking it's o.k if your president admits to sexually assaulting numerous women?

Grabbing "private" parts of numerous women, if they consent, is not sexual assault.

Or it better not be, or I am in deep kimchi:)

Jane - not "in"


Who did Trump say he assaulted? Can you post the names? Thanks


Headline in Pravda on Jan 22, 2013

Russian nuclear energy conquers the world



 Duda rides again!

"Grabbing "private" parts of numerous women, if they consent, is not sexual assault"

How does that conversation go in your head?

TRUMP:Hello,my name is Donald Trump can I grab your pussy?

WOMAN:Sure.Grab away. My pussy has been waiting for you,Sir. Grab it now. Do it!Oh yes.

TRUMP:Thank you for consenting to me grabbing your pussy!

Or....do you believe the 18 accusers who claimed they were sexually assaulted by him? Or his wife who swore in a deposition that he raped her?

Just gauging your ability to think.


Boca Raton, Jane.

Jane - not "in"


Names please.

Porch I looked up the distance from here to there and learned it has a carbon footprint of 90.2 - whatever that is.


East, JiB. :)

Jane, no idea either. We should make the trip sometime and see!


New thread

Greg Q

"Democrats know Republicans need their votes to fund the government past the current Dec. 8 deadline, and many want Pelosi and Schumer to stand firm against the must-pass bill until leaders save the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program."

Why? There's a majority of "Republicans" in both Houses.

Here's a thought, tell the Democrats to get stuffed. Tell the Republicans that they either vote for a Republican budget, or they switch parties and lose their next primary (see: Arlen Specter).

No compromise with the Left

Eric in Boise

Love the H'wood squares questions. My personal fave

Q: Vincent, does it take more than three words to say "I love you" in Hawaiian?

Vincent Price: No, you can do it with a pineapple and a twenty.
