I, too, thought The Outstation was masterful. Spare writing for a compelling tale of character and destiny.

Like Frau, I hope the Church gets strengthened--the last time it wasn't we had WWII--It's a major force when operating as it should to preserve western Civilization against totalitarianism.

Maryrose and I might disagree how that is to happen, but I do not doubt her sincerity one whit.

Frederick always reminds me about Queen, that they are the only rock group to have an Astrophysicist playing guitar.

Yeah, but is he doing anything to keep us safe, like the guitarist for Steely Dan and the Doobies?

Is the funeral porn over?

Not until after Mega McCannz nestles her fat ass into the ergonomically designed chair on The View and revs up the harpies one more time .

ha ... Harper tied it up with a 2 run homer!

Dave (in MA)

People called Romanes, they go, the house.

Funeral porn cannot end until McCains's replacement is named. If that idiot governor names Cindy or Megan, funeral porn is on a permanent loop.

Texas Liberty Gal

Kev - I think we are talking about 2 different things. My point was that God appointed Christ as the Head of the Church. That the HS would be part of any ceremony to appoint a Pope as the Head of the Church and then choose Pope Francis just supports that.

Dave (in MA)

Maybe he could appoint Miss Lindsey. He could be Senator from two states at once, with no discernible difference from when McCain was still serving.

No more funeral porn! Please!

This is what Trump was tweeting about: Trump slams Sessions on Twitter, says AG is hurting GOP in midterms

(Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department,” Trump tweeted. “Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff.....”)

The president apparently was referring to the current investigations into GOP Reps. Duncan Hunter of California and Chris Collins of New York. Fox News has reached out to the White House for additional clarification, and the Justice Department did not immediately respond.

narciso - Your 4:10 post makes a very good point.

It was pretty depressing.

"Speculation and gossip is not truth.
I object to the disrespectful name of Pope Che only. Nothing else. “Your Pettiness” per KK
Back to scrolling by your posts.
"

Broadbrushing opinions of others is maryrose's perogative. obviously. it is also her right to SOB. obviously.

but all of that is neither here nor there.

"Pettiness" is a relevant assignment to maryrose's Joe Friday parody of "nuthin but the facts, ma'am"; because Pope Francis has a track record of enabling ideological priorities of ordained priests with rank that are wholly inconsistent with the Gospel.

the FACT of this matter is that Pope Francis has enabled the ongoing effects of wayward ideology (his own and those of others) to place the Roman Catholic Church on the precipice of destruction as a moral compass in the world. PERIOD.

a thinking individual doesn't need court certified evidence to understand when their interests are being threatened by an iconified human being WHO HAS A TRACK record that's out of square with the teachings of the Gospel. PERIOD.

i rest my case. :D

Captain Hate

Caro talked about funerals with no complaints.

Nike is doubling down on Kaepernick. Just STFU.

Extraneus

So Beasts, after seeing that table of state funeral rules, how is it possible that McCain got one? Someone would have had to ask Trump's permission and receive it. Has anyone claimed that that happened?

Here's the link again:

And btw, the funeral porn isn't over until Ducey appoints the replacement, and maybe not even then if he chooses poorly.

As long as we're bashing Pope Che'...

Pope Francis Rewrites Catholicism ... and the Bible

Last week, the Vatican announced that Pope Francis had changed the Catholic catechism. After 2,000 years of teaching that a moral use of capital punishment for murder is consistent with Catholic teaching, the pope announced that the catechism, the church fathers and St. Thomas Aquinas, among the other great Catholic theologians, were all wrong.

And God and the Bible? They're wrong, too.

Pope Francis, the product of Latin American liberation theology -- along with many other Catholic religious and lay leaders -- is remaking Catholicism in the image of leftism...

Beasts of England

I agree with you, Extraneus - there's no obvious provision for something of that magnitude in those matrices. And some branches or agencies had to pick up a hefty tab for that indulgence.

i guess Nike can endure shrinkage of their US customer base.

You better hope it is otherwise Trump would be displaying the same exact kind of corruption that we criticized the DOJ under Obama for. If there is evidence these two GOP Congressmen committed a crime, not prosecuting the crime and letting them off the hook just because there is a GOP President and Congress means the DOJ is still politicized like it was under Obama.

What I think Trump is doing is making sure the entire country is aware that the DOJ under Sessions is impartial and adheres to the Constitutional rule of law, even if that GOP politicians get indicted too.

IMO this is just setting the stage for what comes after.

James D.

the DOJ under Sessions is impartial and adheres to the Constitutional rule of law, even if that GOP politicians get indicted too.

Too?

Name a Dem politician, or staffer, or FBI/DoJ employee, or even private citizen, who’s been indicted under Sessions.

From where I sit, it looks like only GOP folks and associates of the President are being investigate, while crimes and misdeeds of Dems are being ignored completely.

henry!

thanks for the deets on hardwood floor care. i truly appreciate it.

we were absolutely gleeful last nite. but upon walking through the newly floored room this morning, both Mrs Kid and i looked at each other and said at the same time: "HTF are we gonna keep this floor this nice!"

then i remembered you shared the holy socks technique. we have a large green garbage bag of such sucks that we've never found the gumption to dispose of or "donate" (who'd want em?!)

If there is evidence these two GOP Congressmen committed a crime, not prosecuting the crime and letting them off the hook just because there is a GOP President and Congress means the DOJ is still politicized like it was under Obama.

And if the evidence is weak, that also means the DOJ is still politicized like it was under Obama.

Ted Stevens couldn't be reached for comment.

It's because the teachings precede any group of men, those who offer smooth talk as warmed against in 2 Timothy, in another context e pleb nista.

Kev, as Friends say, the inner light shines at odd moments. You might want to check whether the finish on your floors is wax or other. My floors precede modern material science, they are stained wood. No polymer finish. Thus wax is essential. Newer floors? Polyurethane for the most part. Care may be different. As they say, read the instructions.

Up to the point that the state gives you a yellow license plate, TLG.

Beasts,

Did you see this quote from Brian Daboll a few months back?

"All of them can drop back seven steps and hit a house with the ball. Some of them can hit the door. A few can even hit the doorknob. Tua can hit the keyhole"

If Tua stays healthy to beat Bama this year will require the opposing team to score 40+ points.

I don’t understand what made this funerapalooza a “state” funeral.

From FoxNews in 2006...
The Capitol has a more expansive policy for laying in state. Congressman Henry Clay, in 1852, was the first to lay in the Capitol Rotunda. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover laid in the Capitol in 1972. Police officers killed in 1998 while protecting the Capitol also lay in state there.

I would have said “lying in state”.

Great News for you Boston guys---The Boston Globe has concluded an in depth study and determined that Liz Warren was hired by Harvard strictly on her merits, not at all because she claimed she was a minority---a female American Indian: Ethnicity not a factor in Elizabeth Warren’s rise in law

Not until she had been teaching at Penn for two years did she authorize the university to change her personnel designation from white to Native American, the records show...

Somebody is speaking with a forked tongue.

Miss Marple (the real one)

I don't know what to think about Sessions, and I freely admit it.

I don't think he's a mole. That doesn't seem to be in his character.

So, either he is incompetent at managing the DOJ, is being undercut by uniparty attorneys, or there is a plan I don't understand.

I have no idea which, cannot assemble enough evidence to support one version with another, and just hope that Trump is cagey enough to figure out what's going on and act accordingly.

I didn't take President Trump's tweet as indicative of corruption. (If it wasn't kabuki.) I took it as a reasonable and heartfelt complaint that purported crimes that had been under investigation during the prior administration had all of a sudden been politically and publicly charged and hit the news media.

Pin, someday even Davy Pigg will die. He'll get a STATE FUNERAL. We don't know which STATE yet.
Half an hour ago, I saw a car with VIETNAM WAR SURVIVOR bumper sticker on it. The woman driving wasn't 30 years old yet.

As for Maryrose. She can scroll on by anyone she chooses. MANY MANY of us have recognized her SANCTIMONY over the last couple years. Passive aggressive. Her SUCKING UP on a daily basis in order to keep her NICE IMAGE is see thru.

Kev can be prickly, but he is a FINE MAN of extremely high intellect and moral standards.
He is a practicing Catholic, and he is certainly a dear friend of mine.

Let's treat each other fairly. No cliques. Kev deserves better.

Btw, Maryrose already dislikes me, she can SOB all she likes, and I'm sure she does.

It's a Beeyootifull Day!

Man! So let's review.

Illegitimate Trump has been in office for 18 months and this is what's occurred with his "best" people, and his loyal supporters (please feel free to add, there are so many that it's easy to forget):

Flynn - Guilty
Papadapolous - Guilty
Gates - Guilty
Cohen - Guilty
Collins - Indicted
Ross - Under Investigation
Hunter - Indicted
Nunes -very, very likely under investigation
Rohabacher - under investigation
Manafort - Guilty

Trump - Unindicted co-conspirator

(And there could be a sealed indictment against him already)

What a great day.

CH, I wondered what you meant about Nike and Kaepernick, so just checked and saw the ad.

I know it's probably immature of me to expect large corporations to be impartial (and realize there are tens of millions of us who just want to buy a pair of shoes or tights and not make a political statement or brandish our diversity), but I was sort of surprised by this ad. My stomach felt hollow for a moment. I just wish large corporations would just shut the f*ck up and let us simple folk enjoy our simple lives and not be dragged into some millionaire athlete's twisted sense of anger and self-righteousnous -- brought on because he couldn't cut it in the NFL.

I will not buy NIKE again. Simple as that. Kaepernick is a RACIST. Those who continue to buy NIKE may do so, they may support a company who is paying a racist. It's BIZARRO WORLD.

MM "I don't think he's a mole. That doesn't seem to be in his character."

His character would preclude the term "mole" for its negative connotation and duplicity.

Then he will see himself as doing God's work.

Department of Defense and the Naval Academy a possibility would be the Arizona National Guard ...

i'd look to Office of Casualty, Mortuary Affairs and Military Funeral Honors as a point of departure and then bootstrap that to the honors provided for a sitting senator and someone who married into a lot of money ... the 3d U.S. Infantry would have been involved in the military honors side and Capitol Police on the Senate side.

jimmyk - I envy your being able to attend it one night. I'd like to see some of the newer players win too but have had a hard time being impressed by anyone. Especially when you compare them to the newer crop of golfers like Spieth & Thomas. Younger tennis players just don't compare.
