Is there anybody over 5 years old who is not appalled at this ruling by this Judge? I suppose there is some Legalistic penumbra's this Judge is squinting thru but it seems to me that if you have a lick of common sense and are older than 5 years old you know this decision is absurd.

Breaking: Democrat Stacey Abrams acknowledges Republican Brian Kemp will be the next governor of Georgia after a heated campaign

Narciso79

He's a Duke grad, if marko were around he'd taken exception, actually thr fact that he's Georgetown law as well doesn't particularly improve the situation.

Congratulations Brian Kemp!

mike in houston,

Thanks for that video! I spent my son's high school years as a band mom, as he was a French horn/mellophone player. Went to many competitions, and I LOVE to watch marching bands!

She is creating an entity called Fair Fight Georgia to push the idea that she lost because of kemp's actions as sec of state in cleaning up the voter role. I listened to her speech and it amounted to he won electorally because he cheated and I am going to campaign on that and fund raise. and have created this vehicle that will likely to in to bo's organizing for america.

She is filing a federal lawsuit and will create a meme that he won illegitimately and whites do not want blacks voting and that will drive them to the polls.

frau-I mentioned the day after the election that umc women in metro areas were reflexively voting democrat because all of a sudden in the legislature the incumbent Reps lost, even though they were quite moderate. We seem to have a straight line voting pattern that fits with what Democracy Alliance calls the New American Majority. I noticed that the abrams campaign uses that same term.

I should probably capitalize that as she is now going to be perpetually campaigning and undermining Rep's at every level as in the way of her desired change. She is a very bright woman, but she has fully embraced the MH vision.

America’s gun debate in one thread.

1) I propose a buy-back of assault weapons

2) Gun owner says he’ll go to war with USA if that happens

3) I sarcastically point out USA isn’t losing to his assault weapon (it’s not the 18th Century)

4) I’m called a tyrant

‘Pancake batter-like’ creatures are invading the Maine coastline

With an estimated temperature increase of about 3.6°F in the next few years, the number of invasive species, particularly the Didemnum vexillum and Botrylloides violaceus, could double, according to UNH research released back in February.

Swalwell is shrewd. He'll get a lot of Dem support for his willingness to say what they all think.

Dem congressman: Force gun owners to get rid of assault weapons

In the past, Democrats and gun safety groups have carefully resisted proposals that could be interpreted as “gun confiscation,” a concept gun rights groups have often invoked as part of a slippery slope argument against more modest proposals like universal background checks.

Swalwell addressed these arguments directly, saying he and other Democrats had been too deferential to Second Amendment activists and should follow the lead of teenage survivors of the Parkland shooting who have been more strident.

Etc.

In 1983 when in Indonesia (Kalimantan Timur aka Borneo) we had a constant fire in the big mahogany jungle. Then came the monsoon and the fire was no more. But when it was blazing it was crazy. We all wore masks working on the refinery.

BTW, no fire crews. The Indonesians just let it burn knowing the monsoons will come and wipe it out.

Don’t be so dramatic. You claiming you need a gun to protect yourself against the government is ludicrous. But you seem like a reasonable person. If an assault weapons ban happens, I’m sure you’ll follow law.

You know, up until a few months ago, they didn't allow women to drive or even show their faces in public. They allow men to marry four women each, and beat them if they don't behave. The royal family owns all the oil. Executions are done by beheading. The king is a real king, unlike any so-called king in other countries.

And now all of a sudden they aren't allowed to murder an enemy?

--Don’t be so dramatic. You claiming you need a gun to protect yourself against the government is ludicrous.--

Said the guy who just warned us the government would nuke us if we don't comply.

Trump Warns Acosta After Judge’s Ruling: ‘If He Misbehaves, We’ll Throw Him Out’

Fox News this afternoon aired an excerpt of President Donald Trump‘s big interview with Chris Wallace, in which POTUS reacted to a Federal judge’s ruling against the White House on Jim Acosta‘s press credential.

Trump told Wallace it’s “not a big deal,” saying, “What they said, though, is that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct… we’re doing that, we’re going to write them up right now. It’s not a big deal. And if he misbehaves, we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”

I couldn't get in to jom on my other computer (been working on it in another part of house all afternoon.) Typepad wanted me to sign in, wouldn't take the email address, wanted a new password, etc. I have been working seems like forever to post something. Anyway, I walk back here and jom from a previous thread was on this computer so I moved here.

All of this blah, blah, blah is because I wanted to tell you all some exciting news -- I am so happy. I applied through Senator Inhofe's office for a pass to tour the White House for the Christmas Holiday Decorations tour (for myself, daughter, grandchildren, and sister) and got approved and so the six of us get to see the First Lady's decorations. I am so thrilled. Makes me smile just to type this. :) So, just wanted you all to know how lucky I feel.

The pass is beautiful!

Those are the cute ones, Ext.

The left is 5'11" oldest daughter. Stud volleyball player at the Middle in local high school in her day. Won a couple of sectional and regional championships and was always in the local paper sports pages. Homecoming and Prom Queen. Straight 'A' student. Class President every year till they made her resign when she graduated at mid-term her senior year to go I.U. a semester early. She graduated from I.U. in May and I moved her up to Chicago a couple of weeks ago for her first 'real' job. Black eyes and brown hair. She's the one that makes my chest pump with pride.

The middle one is my 16 year old who always thought she'd be the next 'Middle' till genetics got in the way. She's 5'5" and done. She got a gene that gives her emerald eyes, sandy blond hair and springs in her legs. She'll never be Homecoming Queen, Class President or graduate from H.S. early. I don't care a whit. She's the one that makes me smile.

The one on the right is my youngest at 14. About 5'10" and 155 lbs. He got the black eyes/brown hair gene and is gonna be a big'un. A carbon copy of the oldest in every way except for gender. Smart, big and handsome he checks all the boxes my Dad didn't get to check. I was pushing him out the door the other day to get on the bus and he pushed back a little and was definitely sizing me up! Loves soccer and is learning that being big helps in what is truly a contact sport. I have a track coach constantly begging me to make him do track 'cause 'he's built for the long distance relays and we need him.'

My only regret out of the lot of them is that not a single one of them has ever expressed the slightest interest in basketball.

I'm from Southern Indiana so that's a big deal...
