There was a letter to the editor by the fellow who ran the damage assessment, he was a GMT stations chief in Greece,

Miss Marple the Deplorable


You might find this interesting. It is an article on how the Victorians started using plaster casts to democratize art.


Miss Marple the Deplorable

I don't consider the effort bipartisan. The investigation is supported by the establishment wings of both parties, plus the Leftists who hate anyone to the right of Stalin.


Maybe the three phrases I am trying to recall are "y'all", "you all" and "all y'all".
Or maybe it's a defective memory :) :)

Could y'all grab my mail from the box as you come in?"

"Why don't you all have a seat here on the veranda while my son and your dad fix the tire."

"Sorry, all y'all will have to go on to next house because we ran out of Halloween candy"


A'mom-no, they were not told and your perfectly legitimate question was what red and I were asking all last summer. Are they not being told or are they not being told? They were not being told even though both are highly educated.

Very sad, as she never should have been revived at the er had he realized what was really wrong. Since the hospital could not keep her stable I had assumed they would send her home on some type of iv drip, but that was not what happened. He had asked us for our generator (from the fla house) to make sure she had power for her oxygen, completely unaware the oxygen could not help her.

They had medicare, supplements, and ge retirement benefits and boy were they milked. He actually was not alone. What they were being told was something I or one of my kids heard those last few days.

On a better note, I make great burgers with 2/3rd chuck and 1/3 sirloin. One egg per 2 pounds, worcestershire, and soy sauce.

When the hos[ital could not keep their stories straight and kept contradicting each other, the diva begged my fil to let me get involved. He said he hated to be suspicious. Being suspicious would not have changed the ultimate outcome, but it certainly would have allowed far less suffering.. Most brutal death evr described and it will haunt the person who saw it forever.

WOODWARD: ... They did a damage assessment within the CIA, looking at what this did that Joe Wilson's wife was outed ...
Not only did Plame volunteer Wilson for the adventure, she hosted a meeting to explain the mission without telling anyone "I wasn't here and you didn't see me".

Furthermore Wilson claimed Cheney behested the fandango, which Cheney denied, thus begging the question "well who did then?"

At which point the name Plame became the blame game.

who SISN;T know about the Rizzo no damage assessment? The jury which , thanks to the asleep at the switch J Walton let the jury think otherwise in his closing argument.

s/b DIDN'T know.


My wife is a Southerner, and after years of hearing her jabber with her friends I'm pretty sure "y'all" is hick-speak for the more refined New York "youse."

Janet 🚬 -  I wish my family had a poncho

Anecdotal (to stick up for hospice care).

We've dealt with hospice care 3 times & found it to be very good.

*at a nursing home where hospice nurses did everything
*at our house, with all the meds & equipment brought in but we didn't end up using it (except for the after death services)
*& at my sister's home with all the meds & equipment brought in & we administered it until my Mom died.

There was always an oxygen tank to help with labored breathing. Not to heal or expectations of getting better, but for comfort. All the meds were just for comfort too & to manage pain.
If there was agitation before death, the meds should have been administered more frequently or at higher dosages.

We found hospice to be a great service. They lined up all the services ahead of time for removal & burial. For my Mom & Dad that entailed transport to another city for burial.
Anyway...that was our experience.

Another Bob

Interesting that Preet Bharara has been dragged into this as a bit player.

Somehow not surprised. Is it possible for SDNY to be apolitical?


Janet-was your experience before or after medixare began to fund?

The outfit the hospital brought in was a public company once you cut through yje layers as I know how to do. Bragged about patients acquired. Hospice had been locally owned and then acquired by people whose background had been in respitatory in home care.

Just be careful. No one should die thrasjing about acutely aware they are drowning and cannot get air and saying "they just want to go home."


Yes lanny didnt get the memo, but then again he was representing firtash

I recalled the reports/rumors at the time that NYPD was pretty roiled about what was found on Weiner's laptop.

Classified info? Or (ahem) something else entirely?

Wonder if they kept an image of the drive?

Somehow not surprised. Is it possible for SDNY to be apolitical?

Probably not without firing every single person employed there, and jailing/shooting for treason at least half of them as a warning to future hires.


My cousin, a year older than me and one of my early idols, died a year or so ago, after some days in a large and obviously well-run hospice facility in CT. I'm sure they were good to him and I never heard any complaints from his sisters, but as far gone as he was, he wasn't being fed. I was there, and saw and asked.

Terrible subject, and I hate to take it into an even worse direction, but is hospice supposed to starve the person at the end?

Obama And Lynch "Jeopardized" Clinton Email Investigation: Comey

“I never heard anyone on our team — not one — take a position that seemed driven by their personal political motivations. And more than that: I never heard an argument or observation I thought came from a political bias. Never ... Instead we debated, argued, listened, reflected, agonized, played devil’s advocate, and even found opportunities to laugh as we hashed out major decisions.

“Contributing to this problem, regrettably, was President Obama. He had jeopardized the Department of Justice’s credibility in the investigation by saying in a 60 Minutes interview on Oct. 11, 2015, that Clinton’s email use was “a mistake” that had not endangered national security,” Comey writes. “Then on Fox News on April 10, 2016, he said that Clinton may have been careless but did not do anything to intentionally harm national security, suggesting that the case involved overclassification of material in the government.”

“President Obama is a very smart man who understands the law very well. To this day, I don’t know why he spoke about the case publicly and seemed to absolve her before a final determination was made. If the president had already decided the matter, an outside observer could reasonably wonder, how on earth could his Department of Justice do anything other than follow his lead.” -Washington Examiner

How on Earth.

Janet 🚬 -  I wish my family had a poncho

My experience was that they didn't want to eat or drink near the end & mostly slept on the meds.
I would think the morphine does hasten death though. It was like keeping them doped up to avoid agitation (which I think is common - a final burst of energy/confusion), screaming, pain, etc.

Another Bob

Ext, as a practical matter, yes. My dad was in that spot in a hospital setting (discussion about moving him had begun). Mum was asked about stopping the tube feeding. She couldn't do it. Treatment was one thing, food and water was another.


That makes sense, Janet. My mother went quicker from morphine, no hospice necessary.


My best friend down here ran a hospice in VT for many years.

From the stories she has told, and knowing her very well, I have no doubt that it was a fabulous way to die - if there is such a thing. If anyone has hospice questions let me know and I'll ask her.


Ex--no worries--there is no reason to feed a dying person. Adds to their distress/discomfort as the GI tract is closing down. They aren't hungry.
They may want water or mouth swabs though.

My experiences with hospice care here with friends and in Michigan with my father, aunt and uncle have all been uniformly positive as well. None involved any hospital nursing care level illness though. And all have been non-profits. I have no doubt that the for profit experience may be very different.

rse, your MIL was undermedicated. Adequate morphine relieves that sensation. I am sorry she got such poor care, and most especially for your FIL.


Judicial Watch Statement on Inspector General Report on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe

The IG report also presents additional evidence that the Obama DOJ sought to shut down FBI investigation of Clinton Foundation. This is yet one more reason to either reopen or reinvigorate the Clinton Foundation pay-to-play probes.

And, once again, the IG report shows the FBI has been covering up Andrew McCabe text messages. The messages should have been turned over in Judicial Watch FOIA litigation but we haven’t received one McCabe text message. The FBI corruption and cover-up didn’t end, unfortunately, with James Comey’s well deserved firing.

I went to Culloden last time to Scotland. Very very very impressive, self guided tours as well.

Lanny Davis is a sniveling pile of shit.
He is a hatchet man who smiles as he lies. Comey aided and abetted Rodham, then he was nearly CAUGHT in a trap so he pretended to reopen the investigation. The NYPD had the info on WEINER'S LAPTOP, and Comey was dead meat.
THIS line from the HILL ARTICLE is absolute BULLSHIT.

{{he sent his October 28 letter to Congress in 2016, which cost Hillary Clinton the presidency.}}

On the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing **a clear example of his many failures of leadership in service to self, not country (along with Pulse nightclub, Saudi California shootout, the South Carolina and Texas' church massacres, lying under oath to Congress, courts, American people--while allowing FusionGPS, foreign governments, political operatives from President Obama to communist sympathizers like Powers, Brennan, Jarrett, Rhodes to illegally spy on American citizens to endanger USA and aid Iran, Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, etc)Comey resorts to revenge gossip for $$ LORDY !!

Imagine how empty and dark his life is and has been. Trump should ignore this "dandy" because he has defeated Comey already!!
He is (Jimmy-weasel)nothing but a stooge, now. A defeated, disgusting, clueless tool of his own hubris!

I shall never cloud my life with such doo-doo as Jim=dandy Comey ( unless I'm picked for his jury -- ha ha )

Well, I mean he doesn't live in the moat. More likely the castle, but you probably figured that out yourselves.

Keeping Barbara Bush and her family in my heart and prayers. I will never forget how kind she was to me on every occasion we met, and how fondly the White House staff always spoke of her.

My guess is Barbara Bush was kinder to her than her mother.

If she stepped on a truculent puff adder with a fang ache, it would likely be nicer to her than her mother.


Bush was probably more kind to Chelsea than she was to Sarah Palin.

Press mocks Trump for telegraphing strikes, but doing so minimizes Russian losses, reducing the chance of an escalation. Press mocks Trump for apparent indecision, but the delays allow for precision planning and the kind of diplomacy that brings our primary allies on board.

"Why don't you all have a seat here on the veranda while my son and your dad fix the tire."

Yikes! I'll probably discover that someone has corrected this appalling mistake by the time I catch up, but I just couldn't let it slip by.

"You all" is not a southernism at all y'all. It's what people who have never spent any time in the south think southerners say. It's what people use when they're trying to imitate a southerner, and frankly, it flat out hurts to hear it. It's also a dead give away. In all the time I've spent in South Carolina, North Carolina, south Georgia and Virginia (moutains & Northern Neck), I have never heard any one use "you all" in conversation, unless it's to say something like, you all have to finish your homework, or nobody's watching the tube tonight! I hope that distinction is clear. When it comes to you and all, it's either y'all or all y'all. Period.


Thanks JMH, this ignorant yankee stands abashed and corrected LOL

"Are all our NC peeps safe? "

Let me put it this way, the plane I flew in on tonight was rerouted, in the air, three times, with adjusted ETAs varying by almost an hour. First they tried flying us over to West Virgina and coming down the west side of the Appalachians, instead of the usual route. Then that was nixed, in favor of just staying well below 10,000 feet to the east all the way down (which meant no Wi-FI!). We later had to turn west and go all the way around our destination anyway, because you couldn't even get into Greensboro from the north.... Aside from sporatic turbulence, though, the flight itself actually wasn't all that dramatic. Poured like crazy all the way home from the airport -- my favorite kind of driving. At night. Road like patent leather. With trucks. But never mind.

I do hope any JOMmers who had to weather the storm on the ground fared equally well. Thanks for asking!

LOL! Considering the fact that Comey was reading from an almost identical script when he exonerated Clinton himself, it sounds more like Obama's real offense was stealing Comey's thunder.

Did I miss all of this in catch-up? Or is this what narciso has been trying to tell us?

True Pundit, so appropriate shakes of salt...

FBI Agents accused McCabe of interfering with Russian-linked investigations, including the Boston Marathon terror bombing and the Robert Levinson kidnapping cases, even making a formal complaint with FBI Security Division about the incidents.

McCabe for years worked Russian organized crime in New York for the FBI, previous to his Washington D.C. rise. He led the FBI’s Eurasian Organized Crime Task Force, a joint operation with the NYPD.

McCabe maintained an alliance with Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska a tycoon and close associate of Vladimir Putin. And McCabe apparently met with him in Europe without proper clearance from FBI, while Deripaska was a possible target on a FBI organized crime probe. McCabe also privately acknowledged to FBI agents that Deripaska was a friend.


Some of us thought Schumer and the Democrats were holding up Trump's appointments, but it was also Republican twits like this guy:


For months, Sen. Cory Gardner has been blocking the Trump administration from staffing key positions at the DOJ. Among these position are Assistant Attorney General, Civil Division; Assistant Attorney General, Civil Rights Division; Assistant Attorney General, Criminal Division; and, until Gardner was finally shamed into relenting, Assistant Attorney General, National Security Division. In all, around 20 positions reportedly were affected.

You might think that Gardner’s obstruction leaves these key divisions directionless, or at least without the degree of direction they should have. It’s actually worse worse than that. As Christian Adams has shown, the absence of presidential appointees at the Assistant Attorney General level can leave left-wing Obama holdovers with enormous sway at the Justice Department.


No, that is a surprise, another Bob, who do they cite as a source?

Waldman had been contracted by deripasha since 2009 according to a business insider piece. And with lavrov subsequently,
