Please don’t say that.
The letdown would be huge.

henry

Beasts, if Sessions is truly a black hat, we are in deep kimchi. "Explosive" source for FISA is either someone deep in Trumps team (aka Sessions) or someone deep in Hilligula's team (say Podesta). The first option is more explosive, have we ( Trump and team) hedged for that possibility?

mad jack

i now can only hope james d only enjoys the thrill of his team winning game one of an eighty-two game season but suffers the agony of his team losing game 163. i'm a glass half full kind of guy:-)

lyle

I wish we could “like” comments here, cuz I’d be throwin’ them down on some of these pix. Too funny.

Clarice Feldman

JMH--do not give it a thought. There's always so much going on her, no one can keep track of all the posts.

henry

A better way to put it, Brutus was Caesar close ally.

Dave (in MA)

I guess the B's will have to settle for 81-1.

Another Bob

Madjack I suspect you’re correct about the presser.

FIBbies are never shy about claiming credit for something.

Jim Eagle

6-0. happening so fast, even I couldn't keep up with it.

mad jack

maryrose: this is dc we're talking about. never get your hopes up. you plan for the worst, you hope for the best. narc knows who said that.

Jim Eagle

mad jack,

Lets put is this way. The Caps finish with more wins than the Bruins.

mad jack

jib: i have no doubt about that. i'm looking for a yankee implosion.

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

I'm launching a petition to have another amendment added to the constitution to allow certified Trump supporters and true patriots machine gun mounts on the front of their cars to take out dumbasses who cause a commotion in drive through lines.

Just went to Walgreens to pick up a scipt and car in front of me is trying to pick up a script for controlled substances. Refuses to go in and sign the sheet and the PharmAssist refuses to give her the script. The idiot throws her DL in the window box and refuses to move out of the line. PharmAssist finally threatens to call the cops. 18 minutes later the chicka finally drives off w/o her script, and I am in and out of the drive thru process in 2 minutes (express pay FTW).

Then I go to McD's to grab take out (it's late, I'm still pissed and it's close) and it's $11.10. The cashier says $11.10 and I said here's $21.10... and he says it's only $11.10. Head meet steering wheel. I wasn't terribly nice. IF I HAD A TEN I WOULD HAVE GIVEN IT TO YOU INSTEAD OF THAT $20. PUT THE DOLLAR AMOUNT I GAVE YOU INTO THE REGISTER AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. But the bill is only $11.10. BE LIKE NIKE, JUST DO IT!!!! OK. Wow, how'd you know that it would be a ten in change...

On second thought, we should also petition for rights to laser beams on our friggin heads as well so we can blast idiots into another dimension.

OMG, I was not in the mood to deal with dumbasses today.

Miss Marple

I am watching a series on Netflix about great English castles. I recommend it if you are interested in English history. They have covered Dover and the Dunkirk evacuation, the Tower of London, Warwick Castle, etc.

They just finished Caernevon and although they showed a lot of history, they also showed the Investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales in 1969, which I remember vividly.

Now they are on to Sterling Castle.

Highly recommend this series if you have Netflix.

Beasts of England

I've typed and deleted a comment in this vein several times in the last year, but don't think I've ever posted it. I'll do so now just in case.

Fifteen or twenty years ago I helped host a fundraiser for Sessions. It was a small gathering (maybe 75 people) of Republican donors. At the end of the event Jeff gave a talk. And since it was my first shindig on the 'inside', I thought we were about to get a barn-burner against the democrats. We didn't.

Sessions went after DC. He didn't congeal it into something as finite as the 'Deep State' or the 'Uniparty', but looking back, it would be a fair reading of his message. I was kinda pissed when we left, because I wanted some red meat. And I lend credibility to it because his address was almost a statement against interest. Why tell a room of solid Rep donors that everybody sucked?

But I didn't forget the message, and it's because of that speech that I think he's on 'our side'. That and his loan of Stephen Miller to Trump's campaign and his eventual endorsement.

Anyway, I stand by my read, but am ready to be sick to my stomach if I'm wrong...

Jim Eagle

#MeToo, the Redsox v. Yankees kind. Since I am Yaz neighbor, my alliance is Red Sox, not Yanks. I don't see the Yanks toppling the Soxs.

mad jack

steph: i know that was hell to live through but it was hilarious to read. thank you for sharing.:-)

Dave (in MA)

They had their best season ever in terms of wins, but their bullpen is shaky at best.

mad jack

agreed dave. tres shaky.

Beasts of England

Didn't see your reply before I posted mine, henry. Yeah, the former would really suck. Unfortunately, given the unthinkable amount of money controlled by Congress and the fact that power corrupts, I'd rarely dismiss any scenario out of hand. The Mafia has more decency and honor than those crooks on the Hill. I'm sooper cereal.

henry

Beasts, I hope you are right. However, Trump is an outsider and not well liked in Acelaland. As with Alynski, both sides can play Sun Tzu and the Inward Spy is obvious. As you know Gus and most of my neighbors have met and drunk beer with Paul Ryan at the local 4th of July parade. That did not turn out as we hoped. I don't know what to make of Sessions. I take exception to his approaches to asset forfeiture, data privacy (Patriot Act back doors), FCPA deregulation, and general slant to government power. He does nice work with the illegales. Opiates are a toss up, lines are tough to draw on pain treatment. I suppose a Reagan trust but verify is in order.

narciso

He was elected in 96, almost ten years,after coretta Scott king slimed him based in some statements by a total fraud and con man, he had gone after the Klan which wasn't an easy thing to do in the early 80s when he became us attorney did they give him plaudits for doing so Bobby delaughter re beckwith, that was a rhetorical question,

Prayers for Kav and his family. My Lord, what you have to go through, endure, and reject in the name of honor. The Dems have shot themselves directly in their brain-dead brain.

The worst part, MJ was knowing with almost certainty that the better than average odds are that both would vote democrat in a heartbeat.

narc: i teed one up for you at 9:23

Beasts of England

I'm much more of a libertarian than Sessions, henry - and I agree with your take on his priorities. I think his decency got him rolled on the recusal, although maybe there's something more to it. That's not a prediction, by the way. Hopefully it'll be clearer as we wrap up 2018.

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

LOL beasts.. remember the kids call me the mega beotch of Gwinnett County.

My linguistic legerdemain improves when I'm spitting fire. My dad once said my ability to 'bless their hearts' was a gift from God.

It has been reported that Sessions was in Utah meeting with Huber today.

Interesting that "the mountain went to Mohammed" in a manner of speaking. That's the most energy that Sessions has shown since the Senate approved his nomination as Attorney General.

narciso

That's why I referred to Cicero, which bring me back to Taylor caldwell.

Next week blind spot returns, one of the two series that capture this jaded state.

That event was probably in 2002, narciso - thanks!

It is very good - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mw72Y2NSp6M&feature=youtu.be

the last half (around 3:30 on) is funny.
He highlights Obama at 5:40 with Obama speaking about his youth.

It ends with President Trump telling the truth about Ford at the rally...at 6:45.

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

CLOTURE HAS BEEN FILED!!!!!

matt - deplore me if you must

Thank the Lord we have a new thread! The Long March was getting to be too much.

All Kavanaugh all the time has blotted out the fact that we are now 3 weeks deeper into Mueller's investigation with nothing except a few more staff lawyers sent back to their regular jobs.

daddy, can't you get anything on AFN - Japan? Does it still even exist?I have to believe one of the Japanese cable stations has the game, not that it does much good if your jetting off again. Used to love watching the Yomiuri Giants play. Steeriku!!! Baru!!! Cheer sections and lack dirt playing fields, but it's still the same game.

Whoa, Stephanie!

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

A young Naval Officer was in a terrible car accident, but due to the heroics of the hospital staff, the only permanent injury was the loss of one ear. Since he wasn't physically impaired he remained in the military and eventually became an Admiral, but during his career, he was always sensitive about his appearance. One day the Admiral was interviewing two Navy Master Chiefs and a Marine Gunnery Sergeant for his personal staff. The first Master Chief was a Surface Navy type and it was a great interview. At the end of the interview, the Admiral asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?" The Master Chief answered, "Why yes sir. I couldn't help but notice you are missing your starboard ear, so I don't know whether this impacts your hearing on that side." The Admiral got very angry at this lack of tact and threw him out of his office. The next candidate, an Aviation Master Chief, answered the same question with, "Well, yes sir, you seem to be short one ear." The Admiral threw him out also. The third interview was with the Marine Gunnery Sergeant. He was articulate, extremely sharp, and seemed to know more than the two Master Chiefs put together. The Admiral wanted this guy but went ahead with the same question. " Do you notice anything different about me?" To his surprise, the Sergeant said, "Yes, sir. You wear contact lenses." The Admiral was impressed and thought to himself, what an incredibly tactful Marine. "And how do you know that?" the Admiral asked. The Marine replied, "Well sir, it's pretty hard to wear glasses with only one f*****g ear."

so abby normal grandma does that mean a vote in 30 hrs?

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

I have but one hope for the Kavanaugh confirmation announcement:

When they go to Kavanaugh for his swearing in, immediately after he speaks the words "So help me God", he should reach into his robes, and pull out a fucking budweiser, crack that bitch and slam it.

Bubarooni

on long threads:

Start from the first page of and click the >> for the next page.

From the infamous last thread, it'll be be something like this:
http://justoneminute.typepad.com/main/2018/09/sunday-morning/comments/page/2/#comments

Right after the word 'page', replace '2' with '11', '19' or whatever...

It's a lot faster than scrolling an clicking '>>' at the bottom of the page.

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

Yes the 30 hour clock has started.

I can't believe I have to root for the guy whose cap bill points at the fungo circle when he's looking at the plate.

U.S. Capitol Police said 27-year-old Jackson Cosko was charged with making public restricted personal information, witness tampering, threats in interstate communication, unauthorized access of a government computer, identity theft, second-degree burglary and unlawful entry.
Senior congressional sources tell Fox News that Cosko most recently worked as a staffer for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas. He also had worked with Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., and former Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer of California. A LinkedIn page with Cosko's name on it describes him as a ‘Democratic Political Professional & Cybersecurity Graduate Student’.”

Bubarooni | October 03, 2018 at 10:14 PM

Yes, we were all using that trick last year. But it broke with an update release and was broken until very recently.

narciso

Ok I missed those two references, how Nick fury on particular.

Dave (in MA)

No, the Last Page Trick is what went away. Bubarooni's suggestion still works.

mad jack

narc. i probably screwed up the quote. see my 9:23

looks like james d will be a very happy guy. sorry daddy.

A great meme on FB

And just like that all the phones in prison were found. #PRESIDENTIAL ALERT

anonamom

In the past you could delete the 2 and put in any high number--99, for example-- and get the last page.

Now you have to have a number that actually corresponds to a comment page that exists--like six after a day or so--- or it just goes back the second page. So you need to pay attention as the pages build up to how many there are.

jimmyk

It's a lot faster than scrolling an clicking '>>' at the bottom of the page.

That works on a computer screen, but not on an iPhone or iPad. Also, you have to know what the last page is, which you can figure out, but it's not always convenient.

If you go to the JOM wiki http://jom-glossary.wikia.com/wiki/JOM_Glossary_Wiki I long ago put some instructions on how to create a 'Jump to the last page' bookmark in Safari. That no longer works, but you can create a bookmark that jumps you to any particular page. If you want to bother, you can have bookmarks that jump you to page 5, 10, 15, etc.

There's also a 'Jump to the bottom of the page' bookmark that still does work.

Miss Marple

Bubarooni's suggestion does not work on iPad or iPhone, because they do not number the pages.

I was fine until my computer flamed out. Using iPad I. Have had to scroll through every damn page.

jimmyk

Shoot, now there's no way for both the Red Sox and the Yankees to lose until the League Championship Series.

On the plus side, at least one of them will have to lose in the next round. :)

jimmyk

MM, aside from my trick in the post above yours, can't you just leave the tab open so that you only have to scroll from wherever you left off?

Captain Hate

Beasts,

That's an interesting encounter. I wish you'd have told us that before because that's essential info for the foundation of your support.

Your telling that is making me strongly reconsider what my eyes and incomplete info were telling me.

Btw does anyone think that Australia's foot dragging on the FISA info might have something to do with the Bathhouse Rat's weird agreement to take some of the most problematic islamic vermin off their hands to which DJT said NFW? Fuck that country in particular.

Dave (in MA) sez: "Frau came up with the survivor idea."

Yes, but Dave took it to the Sistine Chapel level especially with the mystery woman allegedly taking a lie detector test (or checking out her quickie cosmetic surgery options).

Miss Marple

Jimmyk,

Yes, I can , which is what I did today. However, if you go to a link and try to come back, sometimes it sends you back to the beginning. Also, if you lose the charge in your battery you will have to start over.

Dave (in MA)

I don't do Apple crap but I just tried the Bubarooni Technique on my wife's iPod Touch, an iPhone with no phone, and it worked fine.

Hey JimNorCal,

I used it tonight.

Worked like a charm.

Another Bob

The page number edit thingie works on anything.

Have done it on PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads, Android phones, everything.

Think you used to be able to enter 999 or something and get the last page. That does not work, you get the first page.

Bubarooni

OK, I don't use apple stuff.

I'm an IT guy so use MS Windows.

I should add a caveat, changing the number after 'page' moves you towards the last page.

jimmyk

Have done it on PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads, Android phones, everything.

In my experience, on iPhones and iPads the address window is too small to get to the page number to change it. There's no forward arrow to move the cursor. I can copy and paste the entire URL into another document, change the page number, then copy and paste that back into Safari, but by the time I do that, it's almost as fast to just page through.

Dave (in MA)

Yes, the departed Mr. Dobbs would sometimes put in a comments/page/999/#comments link at the top of the first page as the Last Page Link.

lyle

I don’t drink beer but I still agree wif Dave @ 10:51. 😎

I just go to my history and it has the last page I looked at. I click on that.

Speaking of the Caps game (was it possible for both teams to lose???), saw the highlight of the Caps Lars Eller taunting the Boston bench after making it 7-0.

A little later Brad Marchand tuned Eller up with three flush rights to the head. Eller had it coming.

Dave (in MA)

jimmyk, I can't remember the exact technique I used but it worked OK for me. I think I just slid the URL over, and a long press made it editable.

Lyle,

You should definitely drink beer.

Another Bob

Jimmy, you have to tap the address bar three times. First tap highlights it, second tap selects all the text, third tap gives you the blinking blue bar cursor.

Drag the cursor to to the right (the text will scroll) until you get the cursor to the page number. Edit as needed and hit “Go”.

Dave, I guess I'm not too old to learn a new trick. With just the right touch on the address bar you get a sort of magnifying glass that allows you to slide the URL over. That's helpful, thanks.

I still like my bookmark trick, but I seem to be a party of one on that.

Pinandpuller

He then forcefully roundhouse-kicked me in the shoulder, which sent my phone flying and I yelled for someone to call the police. In defence of his violence he claimed he’d meant to kick my phone, and then, as a fellow Life Chain participant dialed 9-1-1, he yanked off the ribbon I’d been wearing on my chest and ran away, heading east on Bloor.
