I'm never first.


Seriously, we had a lightning storm in atl and hubby had me turn off computer.

What have I missed?


A close up of "the eyebrow."

Well, I am somewhere between 1 and 100, since I didn't refresh.

Just back from Day One practice at Shinnecock. Wind was up a bit and was creating some havoc for those who have never encountered a course like Shinnecock especially the fescue rough. In 1995, Tiger was an amateur still and hit his drive on number one left into the fescue. Sprained his wrist trying to gouge it out and had to WD.

Hell, the only time Jack Nicklaus ever lost a golf ball as a professional was in 1986 during the horrendous first round (wind & rain) when he couldn't find his tee shot on 10 somewhere in the right rough. The forecaddie had abandoned his position on the right side.

They are already syringing the greens after every group goes through. Watched Jon Jennings the Super using a moister gauge on 9 and 18. I just hope this is not a repeat of 2004 when the USGA let the greens get away from them. No more trees like back then to protect them.

If we get the SW winds I am going to predict 1 to 4 under wins. If we get the ugly north-westerly wins, it could be in the + digits.

To be fair, I think Clinton may have been talking sense in a sense.

Once upon a time, it was considered quite manly to just grab a girl and kiss her. Many examples can be found in popular movies of the 40's, 50's, 60's, etc., and yes, some miscalculations did result in a slapped face.

Do that today, though, and risk complete ruination.

Robert De Niro apologizes to Canada for Trump's 'idiotic behavior'

TORONTO — Robert De Niro apologized to Canadians on Monday for the “idiotic behavior of my president” a day after the actor launched an expletive at Donald Trump at the Tony awards.

De Niro said Trump’s remarks about Canada are a “disgrace” and apologized to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and others who attended the Group of Seven summit of leaders in Canada. Trump called Trudeau “dishonest” and “weak” following the summit on Saturday. Trump advisers also ripped Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber.

De Niro made his comments at a groundbreaking for a new restaurant and hotel complex in Toronto.

The fact that I am having a meeting is a major loss for the U.S., say the haters & losers. We have our hostages, testing, research and all missle launches have stoped, and these pundits, who have called me wrong from the beginning, have nothing else they can say! We will be fine!


Note the typos. I bet the press will re-tweet this just to show how illiterate he is, therefore spreading the message.

As for Robert DeNiro's "apology" to Canada; sod off swampy--you don't have the right to apologize on my behalf. I'll get back to you when you do, you uneducated moron. Meantime your Mama should wash your dirty mouth out with Lava soap.

As for a thorazine gun for Billy Jeff. He likes dickin' bimbos at home. That's one reason he encouraged Hillary to go out on the campaign trail. Gives the staff time to change the sheets.

Meantime at the summit; a couple of days ago Reuters reported that Lil Kim was going to leave the summit five hours after it started. I guess Air China said he should "be there or be square" re the scheduled departure time. Not to be outdone, the Trumpster's team announced that The Donald would leave the summit two hours after it started. If this keeps up, both will go home tonight.

Federal Prosecutors Release Scathing Report on NYCHA, Citing Health, Safety Violations on De Blasio’s Watch

Justin Trudeau: "You talkin' to me?"


Stormy Daniels is an honorary member of Shinnecock?

Kevlar Kid

That he would meet a different fate than the General, POTUS is reminding me of the wiles exhibited by Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson throughout 1862.

This is especially true re "the appearance and decorum unbecoming" and his penchant for secrecy re the finer points of strategy and selected tactics.

These are things that the envious among us have chided greatness for in the past.

Like Jackson, Trump fights. More importantly, he WINS!

I am of the steadfast opinion that we are witnessing an unfolding of American genius in an office of high authority which usually smothers it and buries the remains ignominiously.

Yes, i can feel frustrated at times. But the only foe there is my skewed view of the clock. DC runs on geological time. Me? Not so much.


Like Jackson, shot by his own side.

Kevlar Kid

me wonders about the unfunded liability fiasco going on re pensions and New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA).... snafus in quality service and care? Look no further at the pension fund and its disbursements right now, next year's, and what's coming in five years.

It's happening everywhere. Until those bugabooz are resolved, the press will not connect the dots and will keep this all one big morality argument that will ultimately be blamed on Ronald Reagan and every Republican elected since.

Kevlar Kid

should've said: "Look no further than the pension fund and...."

Like Jackson, shot by his own side.

For now, shot at... like i said "That he would meet a different fate..."

On a separate note, maybe you have a recommendation for our little 6er who is popping out her teeth every week or two as expected, but with her marginal immune system, she gets hit pretty hard each time. (She was a 2-1/2 mo premie.)

Well, TK, who else can interview him. Wolfe? Lester Holt? Christiana Amanpour? At least Hannity won't try to ambush him.


Oh, I like what I saw in Havoc. She showed a lot of promise.


For me the silliest thing about De Niro's little display was his flexing his biceps. Puh-leaze


Larry Elder should interview Trump, IMO.

#NeverTrump Republican SPOOKED – Suddenly Spending Money on Ads to Smear Pro-Trump Primary Opponent

GOP Rep. Mark Sanford has spent the past three years torching President Donald Trump, firmly establishing himself as a staunch critic of the commander-in-chief who, unlike so many others in his party, never came around.

Now he’s suddenly at risk of losing his job over it.

The once seemingly safe former South Carolina governor, who’s never lost a bid for political office, is sweating in the final days of his primary race against state Rep. Katie Arrington, a political newcomer who’s cast Sanford as a disloyal Never-Trumper.

I go to a really big nondenominational Bible church in NoVa.
Anyway, today they sent out a mass email for all to pray for the North Korea summit.

a bit - "The situation is really, really terrible there. Open Doors USA works with the persecuted church all over the world. They are asking us to join together to pray for God's mercy, as the US and North Korea meet in the summit scheduled to begin today. Click here to see the Open Doors email that was sent out to supporters in the last few days, explaining how we can pray together with other believers from all over the world. Please join us in taking time today to pray for all the evil in the world locally, and in faraway places like North Korea. We need a miracle!"

Victims of ‘Nigerian Prince’ scam starting to get restitution

Several variations of deception have been used in the scheme, but the general idea is that the crooks use very convincing tactics to get sympathetic victims to send them money or share their banking information.

In return, the “Nigerian Prince” offers they will be re-paid a fortune through an intricate channel. Some victims communicated with the scammers for years, sending multiple payments – with at least one victim being lured to Nigeria where they were subsequently imprisoned.

Leading Up to U.S.-North Korea Summit, Open Doors Calls for 24-Hour Prayer, Fasting on June 11


Kevlar Kid

This Katie Sowers is a minor assistant to the receivers coach for the SF 49ers.

Glad to see women making qualified strides to work in the NFL at the coaching level.

However, I think Sowers is doing herself a disservice professionally by taking her position and weaponizing it as "the first openly gay coach in the NFL."

The reason Coach Shanahan hired her is he was familiar with her work as an ATL assistant during his time there. And he's stated publicly that she doesn't draw attention to herself and does her job.

For this "Outsports" outfit to have her parading around as the "first openly gay coach" is absurd in that it is in no way helpful to the players and coaches who might be gay but in no way would dream of going down the same distracting dead-end road the pathetic Michael Sam chose (his pride) over success in chosen profession.

Bottom line: she's female. On an NFL team would anybody give a rip? Is a male player or coach going to be inspired by her inferior status on the team, relative to the senior staff and players outside her player group---enough to say, "Hey if she's out and is none the worse, then so am I.I'm all in!"

Ya right. This is gotcha politics by the 1.5% and their virtue-signaling "I'M NOT" button-wearing hetero codependents who seek ANY KIND of validation they can find because they have not a shard of spine when it comes to identity politics.

Haven't read about any PLAYERS or Hall of Famers marching. Merely "league reps". This is a marketing stunt and the first openly lesbian minor rank coach in the NFL is being run up the flag pole.

Prancing when ya got no cred, like KipperSnack found out last week, will get you gone in a hurry. And it's not because you're gay or believe cops want to kill black people.

The professional sports culture is merit-based. If sexuality were important to who gets a shot, the league would be in even worse trouble than loss of entertainment market share.

Much ado about NADA. Anyone with half a working noodle knows homosexuals are in every walk of life in the known universe.

These marches? They are for the snowflakes and their avengers.

And this march? It's for the NFL-especially- to virtue signal to prospective ticket buyers that they'll do anything to get that entertainment dollar.

MM: I'm going to come right out and say it--- it's damned refreshing to witness your excitement about a President of the United States. It's been a long time.

Don't get me wrong. Trump stirs my enthusiasm too. But I don't feel him the way I felt President Reagan. Nothing negative there about Trump; when there's a connection, there it is.

Your enthusiasm inspires me to stay bright despite all of bilge coming out of Potemkin ProgTardo Land.

Thanks! Part of it is no doubt due to my being right about him, I have to admit.

But I really do enjoy this presidency more than Reagan's - perhaps because I can participate in real time, whereas Reagan's was filtered through the MSM.

Also, I am tickled by how upset the Left is and how he constantly defeats them. It's been a LONG time!

Kudlow suffered a heart attack and is in Walter Reed (Trump tweet)


'Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack. He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center.'

Bull. Drug test him. Now Immediately.

Kudlow's a time bomb who has demonstrated poor judgment and has zero credibility to work in the U.S. government. Even Buckley fired him from NR for substance abuse. This guy had a $10,000/month cocaine habit back in his Reagan days, crash, burned, crashed again and again, given repeated passes and reboots. If you had his record you'd never have gotten the ecurity clearences for ths job he holds. CNBC took the risk and hired him but America doesn't need this. There's 320 million citizens to pick from-- find another economic advisor.


CH, that's a worse conspiracy fixation than the "fire doesn't melt steel" crowd.
