Felosi is making a tactical error with this tit for tat approach to the Donald. all she's going to get is pushback and embarassment.

her job is to get POTUS off his square. and the only way to do that is to negotiate.

someone should send Nancy the fable about the man in a trenchcoat on a cold day in Chicago. the wind and the sun make a bet as to which could force the man to take off his coat.

wind blows and blows. man just grips his coat and hunkers down. the sun takes over. comes out. beating down the man with heat. the coat comes off.

POTUS has self-interests relative to his position, Felosi. give to get. didn't your peawit daddy or whomever mentored you teach you anything?

flouncing about with a big gavel makes for a poor rendition of penis envy.

Former top FBI attorney James Baker admitted to House lawmakers in October last year that the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump 2016 presidential campaign and Russia was riddled with abnormalities.

I just had a good chuckle.

About 7 years ago my oldest daughter went to the March for Life. Before she left I admonished her 'You'll be on the National Mall all day so you better dress warm. Double socks would be a good idea.'

She scoffed at me.

Froze her azz off.

A couple of days ago my 17 year old daughter was leaving for the March for Life. Before she left I admonished her 'You'll be on the National Mall all day so you better dress warm. Double socks would be a good idea.'

She scoffed at me.

She phoned her lil bro this afternoon and said she was dying, hadn't felt her feet since about 11 AM.

It's always nice to be right but it's awesome to be 'Dad Right'.

I'm really looking forward to picking her up in the morning and asking how things went.

Salads are now off limits, Pin. No one vying for political office will ever talk about salads again, or probably even an ingredient of a salad, such as bacon bits.

JiB, I like salads too. As long as there is some protein in it.

Last year I mentioned to my Significant Other that I really liked Russian dressing and we hadn't had any forever.

Since she worries about my bowel movements a lot more than I do and is convinced that veggies are a key to doing that in an efficient manner she picked up a bottle of Russian dressing for me.

It's about 3/4 gone but there is nothing to worry about. There are more bottles of Russian dressing in the pantry.

I actually pulled her aside a couple of weeks ago, placed the upopened bottles on the kitchen counter and said 'Stop it.'

I like Russian but not that much. I'm stuck with Russian dressing until mid 2020 at this point.

It is peculiar.
More so than his opinions, which I often find implausible, I think it stems mostly from his tendency to punch in the teeth whoever just punched him, rather than ignoring it or being deferential.

Maryrose, sometimes you remind me of the irritatingly perky girl, usually played by Natalie Wood or Sandra Dee, in the late fifties, early sixties coming of age flicks who eggs her buttondown boyfriend on to take down the greaser punk from the wrong side of the tracks [who she secretly has a crush on];
"Come on Biff, are you gonna let that white trash humiliate you in front of all our friends?"
"Oh Johnny, I'm secretly rooting for you..."

Trump's big border statement tomorrow has to be about an Executive Order, no?

The big kerfluffle between Gorka and Abilio happened because he (Gorka) had been invited to the White House with several other talk-show hosts. They could not reveal the contents of their off the record meeting. I think this is related to his announcement tomorrow. (Hope so!)

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Janet,'
The right (here) hates the left as much as the left hates the right.--

I absolutely confess to this.
I do hate the left as much as they hate me just as I also hate Nazis just as much as they hate me.
The difference is they both are trying to destroy not only our constitutional republic but Western Civilization itself, both of which are good things. Very good things.
I am hated for trying to preserve those things and standing in their way of that destruction.
Some hate makes sense and is justified. Some is not.
Now, I don't hate them individually or personally. But I hate what they believe, what they do, what they are trying to do and their way of going about it.

Now you may say they say the same thing about me. Here's the problem; they are wrong and their aims are evil.
I am right and my aims are good.

Case. Closed.

The Cohen thing to me was BS from the get-go. If Cohen had this on Trump, why didn't he use it when he was agreeing to mouth whatever the Feds wanted him to say when he was squirming for his plea deal? When he was telling Steffi how sorry he was for being such a lying slime (all because of that big meanie Trump!) and he was never going to lie anymore. Why wasn't Lanny Davis telling us about it?

And now Mueller publicly refutes it. I would say "Hah!" but the Dems and the MSM will use it to "raise questions" nonetheless.

I saw an ad for a Mueller action figure, $19.99 ea.

There wasn't much of a description in the ad, but I'm guessing the way it works is you take it out of its box, and then you spend 2+ years speculating on what it might eventually do.

I remember reading Sometimes A Great Notion by Kesey (who also wrote One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) when I was in high school and liking it. He's a talented nutjob--as documented by Tom Wolfe in The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.

This is Michael Cohen we're talking about. I'm not sure anyone was confused on that point. I think the left's take on this is that Cohen is a sleazy liar who once was Trump's sleazy liar so anything he says can be used against Trump, even if it's a sleazy lie. Or something.

That's $18,999,980.01 for shipping and handling, mentioned in the fine print.

“The right (here) hates the left as much as the left hates the right.”

Janet beat me to it, but I’ll say it anyway. I don’t know how you measure emotions, but I don’t think anyone here would get liberals thrown out of a restaurant, or get them fired from their job for their views (other than throwing politicians out of office, of course), or belittle their children, or riot if they came to speak at your university. Do you think any of us would do those things, Jane?

Commenter "Puesto Loco" on that Ben Smith BS tweet:
Replying to @BuzzFeedBen
1st time Mueller speaks out in almost 2 years, is to make sure he doesn't have to report to a Dem House as @SenBlumenthal & Sen @ChrisMurphyCT were starting to demand. Mueller obviously wants to hide all this from the American people to protect Republicanism. Remember Comey 2016?

I read 125 pages of Kesey’s "Sometimes a Great Notion" in college. Had to put it down. Didn”t like it.

Picked it up later and read the rest.

Fascinating. The first 125 pages were actually the last 125 pages of the book. Brilliant. he had, in a literary exercise, put the end of the story at the beginning.

I found this comment by arch-anarchist and environmental whack job extrodinaire Edward Abbey of The Monkey Wrench Gang and Earth First! infamy pretty darned amusing;

In an essay called "Immigration and Liberal Taboos", collected in his 1988 book One Life at a Time, Please, Abbey expressed his opposition to immigration ("legal or illegal, from any source") into the United States: "(I)t occurs to some of us that perhaps ever-continuing industrial and population growth is not the true road to human happiness, that simple gross quantitative increase of this kind creates only more pain, dislocation, confusion and misery. In which case it might be wise for us as American citizens to consider calling a halt to the mass influx of even more millions of hungry, ignorant, unskilled, and culturally-morally-generically impoverished people. At least until we have brought our own affairs into order. Especially when these uninvited millions bring with them an alien mode of life which—let us be honest about this—is not appealing to the majority of Americans. Why not? Because we prefer democratic government, for one thing; because we still hope for an open, spacious, uncrowded, and beautiful—yes, beautiful!—society, for another. The alternative, in the squalor, cruelty, and corruption of Latin America, is plain for all to see.

I was going to bold the good parts but almost the whole thing was dark. The Dem party - to the left of a radical anarchist. They're just like us. A little bit of reasoned discussion and they'll lose their desire to put us in an American gulag.
