Why aren't basketball teams woke? Mark Cuban is a credible sex maniac etc.

Looks like I have the right to retroactively say, "First."

Dead cats bounce a little as well. Seems to me there is more room for correcting. I have been wonderfully correct, as well as tragically wrong about stocks. So I recommend beer for this weekend.

henry,

I stared the cocktail hour a little early, lamenting the fact that there are no more Twinkies, Sno Balls, Ding Dongs, cupcakes or fruit pies.

Somebody should start making those with all natural ingredients. I bet they would make a fortune.

Willard;
In the dim flickering past, long before the dark and brooding Tom Maguire and anonamom destroyed my delightful and joy filled world, I used to jump for joy when ma put those chocolate Hostess cupcakes in my sack lunch, though Twinkies were also highly prized. And like TK, I treasured my Hostess fruit pies, especially the berry, though lemon, cherry and apple were all keepers.

The stock market still poses a real risk to Trump and Rep prospects in Nov with the election over three weeks away.

Idea for a restaurant:

All 1950's food. "Vintage food! Eat like your grandma!"

Menus would include baked goods knocked off the Hostess line, grilled cheese (with American cheese and white bread), home fries cooked in bacon grease, Jello salad with either grated carrots in orange Jello or grated cabbage in lime Jello, cheeseburgers made with American cheese, etc.

You could play 50's music and have nostalgic decor. I am sure you all could add to the menu.

Dave (in MA)

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma | October 12, 2018 at 04:34 PM, Yes, but Little Debbie's didn't go out of business and get resurrected like Hostess and Drake's did.

Miss Marple

Good news on a Hostess comeback and Little Debbie's still being around!

Miss Marple

I love Little Debbie Nutty Bars!

MM,

We have a retro 50's breakfast & lunch counter and ice cream counter service here in Southampton. It is Sip n' Soda.

Just like any lunch counter in Woolworths.

The one in Bridgehampton is Candy Kitchen.

Extraneus

Sounds like a Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives show, MM.

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

True Dave..


MM the Studios at Walt Disney World have a restaurant called 50s Prime Time Cafe. Some of the food is comfort food and the decor is kitchy 50s. The prices are definitely 2018... $24 for most meals. Yikes!

They have a couple 50s diners near Milwaukee... still have hot rods cruise them as well. Gus probably knows them all.

Good afternoon! The Florida political ads are *interesting*. Bill Nelson is still living the glory days of his shuttle flight. Rick Scott has some impressive ads. The local news is showing hurricane devastation. Search and rescue continues.

Thanks Jack and to all who linked 50's type diners!

Miami is an excellent school. Tough admission standards, good programs and a little bit on the preppy side.
The girls from my high school love it and many from Rocky River where I live decide to go there.
In recent years Ohio State has been a big draw and of course Ohio University.
University of Cincinnati has some great programs and taking a tour as you plan to do is the right way to go.
Keep us posted on your progress.

Calling for abolishing the SC just because they don't control it... Dems have no self-awareness.

"Just imagine the devastation they would cause if they of their obtained the power they so desperately want and crave," Trump added. "You don’t hand matches to an arsonist and you don’t give power to an angry left-wing mob, and that’s what they have become."

If Engineering, pre_Med or Architecture, you cannot find a better program than at Cincy. Plus if you are musical, communications, or into radio/tv then the Conservatory meets any program in the world, not just the US.

Vandals Smash Windows, Deface Doors of Metropolitan Republican Club in Manhattan

According to one official, members of Antifa had harassed the online ticket vendor Eventbrite, which the GOP Metropolitan Club used to sell tickets for the McInnes event at their headquarters.

The official said Antifa had “desperately” been trying to get the Metropolitan Republican Club to cancel the McInnes speech. The group’s latest attempt came shut down the event involved vandalising the club’s 1930s, pre-war building and leaving a threatening letter, which Breitbart News has obtained.

“Tonight, we put the Republican Party on notice,” the letter begins, labeling McInnes a “hipster-fascist clown” and accused the club members of “treachery against humanity.”

“Our attack is merely a beginning. We are not passive, we are not civil, and we will not apologize,” the letter continues. “Those of good conscience and clear mind know this state of oppression cannot remain.”

CNN’s Don Lemon Uses Kanye’s Dead Mother to Attack Him: She ‘Would Be Embarrassed by This’

“We need to take the cameras away from Kanye and from a lot of this craziness that happens in the White House, because it is not normal and we need to stop sitting here pretending that it’s normal,” Don Lemon said.

“This was an embarrassment. Kanye’s mother is rolling over in her grave,” he continued.

“I spoke to one of her friends today, or texted with one of her friends today from Chicago, Donda’s friends, I used to live there, I know ’em. She said, ‘Donda would be embarrassed by this. She would be terribly disturbed by this.’ And Kanye has not been the same since his mother died. He kept talking today about ‘Oh, I put the hat on and the hat made me feel strong and wearing a cape’–he needs a father figure.”

Lemon also said that Kanye West’s White House appearance was a “minstrel show” Thursday.

WOW.

Utterly despicable & racist network @CNN is using Kanye’s dead mother as a means to try to draw blood. @donlemon you are TRULY in the sunken place. Using a dead woman to attack a free black man for refusing to bow to your liberal masters is shameless, crass, & soulless. https://t.co/vQ64rSEeeE

Isn't Don a homosexual? Can we stop pretending it's "normal" too?

Hannity is interviewing John Cox right now. Cox is the Republican running for governor in California.

Cox gets one word in for Hannity's three words.

Hannity lived in Santa Barbara where he "stole an orange of a tree and it was the best orange he ever had."

This makes him an expert out here.

Oops, Sorry but I see they moved the Comms and Radio/Tv curriculum from the Conservatory back to the UC curriculum. But when I was there that is where the radio/tv jocks went to earn their reps.

When I was there I actually dated a girl who was getting her BA in Cello.

Jack is Back!

TK,

Hannity is a closet Queens kid living in Massapequa now. You need to speak faster, louder, and continuous to get pass him. Some guy from laid back California hasn't got a chance:)

Beasts of England

Hillary has lost her security clearance. Cheryl Mills, too!!

Jack is Back!

Beasts,

About time. Now for Rice, Rhodes and the other seditionists.

Threadkiller

He just got through stomping all over James O'Keefe, JIB. It was terrible. O'Keefe was throwing out a teaser about some Senator they have recorded. Hannity started guessing States and names and didn't let a word get in edgewise. O'Keefe will announce the details on Monday. Hopefully on a different show.

Beasts of England

And four other names redacted. Categorized as 'withdrawn', but that would be exceedingly odd for someone in her position. Hmm.

henry

Beasts, I drink a beer to that!

Beasts of England

#MeToo, henry!! HRC's at the end of August, Mills, et al., at the end of September. Something's up with that. Just sayin'...

Beasts of England

Lots of moving pieces behind the scenes, JiB. Maybe they were a few of the redacted names. This is a great way to start the weekend!

All of the panel participants concede that most of the declassified evidence against the soft-coup officials will not come out until after the mid-term election.  Additionally, it appears to be generally accepted now that AG Jeff Sessions will be fired (allowed a graceful exit) in the lame-duck congressional period or soon after.

Beasts,

I am celebrating. Sure I started before I knew about the lost security clearances, but now it will go on for hours.

Beasts,

There is the famous 10 day band to suffocate the airways withhe ads. But I think a big reveal like FISA or Spygate needs more time. Have no idea how Trump will play that even if he does which is a big ask in my opinion.

Ledge for the vodka, verandah for the tea and cookies.

"Isn't Don (Lemon of CNN) a homosexual?"

Didn't someone just post a twitter link with a photo of Don's white "husband"? Like, earlier today.

Extraneus

I agree with you on Hannity, TK. He's on our side, but I never liked the guy, and he's a terrible interviewer.

Miss Marple

Revoked security clearances for Hillary and Cheryl Mills?

Yay!

Let's see what the President has to say in Ohio!

Threadkiller

From the CTH link:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8mZs1Yy7vOc

It's Hannity again, Ext. I agree with you that he is on our side. He has been very well connected to Trump. If Trump is playing him for a fool or he is playing his viewers for fools with Kabuki-4D it will be unrecoverable at the polls.

The video starts with Trump complementing the people who are going after Rosenstein. Granted he is not acknowledging that they are going after RR. He sticks to the collusion BS. But, is it reasonable to believe that he doesn't know about their animosity towards RR?

Rocco

anonamom, that's a lot of seed, I bet it will be beautiful next spring.

I agree Hannity's a loud mouth but his guests have been over the target for a long time now IMO. The only one I'd add to that list is Peter Schweizer who started it all.

Extraneus

Maybe Jim Jordan will be at this one, too, and we can read the entrails.

Anyone have a good link?

Finally some consequences for the Hillary cabal.
I love that it takes away her stays and power just like Brennan.
How the mighty have fallen.
What about Bill’s security clearance?
Hums should have hers gone as well.
Watched Hannity last night.
Solomon, a writer for the Hill said some stuff will be released before the midterms, but most of it afterward.
TomR:
If Mueller is working with President Trump why are his lawyers answering questions in the investigation?
Why was obstruction ever even mentioned or included?
Greg Jarrett has a good article today where he makes the case for replacement of Sessions and Rosenstein.
I have to say I agree with him.

Beasts of England

JiB - there are a few people in the UK linked to Spygate with 'Lord' and 'Sir' in their titles. I know Lord is a much bigger deal, but are they considered royals or merely VVIPs?

maryrose

Stays should be status.

"Isn't Don (Lemon of CNN) a homosexual?"

Not my business. Hope they are happy.

...

What is my business is that Lemon’s words and actions do not match. Therefore I cannot trust what he says.

Solomon is all over this, maryrose - to the point I think he's being fed some real scoop from the source. Hes also a great writer!

Here's my take on Sessions, maryrose - in this case, absence of evidence may not be evidence of absence. Time will tell.

Don Lemon raked over the coals for hypocrisy
(Posted by Tom R last thread)

https://mobile.twitter.com/w_terrence/status/1050770101509808128?s=21

Here's how it starts:
Don Lemon you sleep with a white man every night but had the nerves to tell Kanye to stop acting like he need white folks in his life. So he can’t support a white man but it’s okay for you to be married to one.

Another Bob

If one has a security clearance, has one signed an agreement permitting the government to monitor you for violations?

Did Hillary et al. relinquish the clearances to stop such monitoring?

The Infamous Ignatz

He makes it our business when he takes on the job of determining what is "normal".

I know and appreciate that SB. :)
However I'm not sure social libertarianism is a luxury that can be indulged too vigorously in an era of libertine Marcusians trying to overthrow Western Civ and a culture and society already well along in accepting their lead.
Social libertarianism in an amoral, corrupt society is not unlike running a welfare state with open borders; the moral hazard can be fatal.
