OK. Traditional mousetraps it is. At least it's quick for the mouse.

Hard to believe that with the Crisis on the Border, the Dems won’t do the quick and easy fix. Would solve the problem but they want Open Borders, which equals crime!


I still want to know how much money the democrats get from the drug cartels.


Obsess much?

Between 350 and 400 protesters greeted former Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, who was in town for a Vermont GOP fundraiser Thursday evening at the Hilton.



narciso, About that Brookings link, a small thread:


And here: https://twitter.com/maria_giavanna/status/1134185938505084929


just some food for thought.


I'm partial to these mouse traps. A little smear of peanut butter, set the trap near a wall, open the jaws. Instant death nine out of ten times. The tenth did struggle but died. Without touching the mouse, easy to drop the remains in a bag to throw out. Repeat.

Why is everyone on Obama's foreign policy team not in federal prison ?


Kerry's daughter is married to a hooked up Iranian.

What would Kerry's motivation be to EVER help Iran get BILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLIONS of dollars???
Jarretts????? Obama's?????????

I see a pattern developing.

--Go ahead hit me, I will call 911. She's like like that. Very pugnacious in defense of friends. I'd never think of beating her. She'd beat the crap out of me. --

jim nj,
Nancy is thinking "go ahead and hit me". Boyfriend is likely thinking "where could I hide the body?"
EVERY domestic abuser can become a murderer, pushed far enough and nothing pushes them further than threatening the "possession" that gives their life purpose. That doesn't mean do nothing. It means act accordingly.

My first employer was a brilliant man who had escaped East Germany and built an excellent construction company from nothing.
His girlfriend had an exhusband who had repeatedly abused her.
Rudy attempted to intervene. A year or sd after I moved on he was reported as missing.
They discovered Rudy's remains in several different spots in the mountain forest twenty miles east of here.

And this can't be emphasized enough, as Anonamom has said and as I know you know, there is NOTHING you or your gal can do until this woman changes and nobody else can change her.
Moth. Flame.

Mexico has taken advantage of the United States for decades. Because of the Dems, our Immigration Laws are BAD. Mexico makes a FORTUNE from the U.S., have for decades, they can easily fix this problem. Time for them to finally do what must be done!


Great news about Desmond!

Sounds like he is going to bounce back quickly:)


Hah, sbw--Pikes are always the peoples' friend.
So happy to hear about Desmond, Marlene.


Great news about desmond.

Well vlad tapes (who prince William is related to) used pikes to great effect.


Noted at BJG blog. I skim (at most) the 4D stuff but it is even more apparent that AG Barr releasing his own summary was a key stroke.
No wonder Dems are cursing!

==> Prior to the report’s submission, Barr ordered Mueller to highlight the 6e (grand jury material) that by law could not be publicly released. Mueller disobeyed that order, thinking it would force a delay in releasing the report because redaction would take time. This would impel Barr to release Mueller’s summaries if he didn’t want to be accused of a cover-up, thus allowing Mueller to set the narrative for the Democrats’ push (putsch?) to impeach.

Instead, Barr created his own summary. Hence, Mueller’s subsequent letter (which Barr called “snitty”), written to be leaked and promptly leaked, was a means of regaining control of the narrative. In the letter, the special counsel complained about Barr’s four-page memo, which incidentally, he refused an offer to review.

--No doubt I share in some of the blame but I never start anything.--

--Ig is extremely kind, but addressing your role in this most obnoxious situation obliquely is not of service to you or regular readers, as it allows you to continue to wallow in your perceived victimhood, and you chose to justify the behavior as stated above.

(I am not saying there has not been some mind blowingly foul mouthed attacks on you, so much so that I no longer read others' posts either.)--

I hope this is a little less oblique;
From experience I am more skeptical than most regarding psychology's and psychiatry's ability to cure or even change much of anything.
However, also from experience, I have come to realize they are very, very good at identifying and describing human behavior and pathologies.
One of these accurate descriptions is the Karpman Drama Triangle. They are always unhealthy. It's what's going on with jim nj's Nancy, Debra, crazy boyfriend triangle and it's what's going on here at JOM.

Initially, a drama triangle arises when a person takes on the role of a victim or persecutor. This person then feels the need to enlist other players into the conflict. As often happens, a rescuer is encouraged to enter the situation. These enlisted players take on roles of their own that are not static, and therefore various scenarios can occur. For example, the victim might turn on the rescuer, the rescuer then switches to persecuting.
Others can figure out who is who. As for me I'm withdrawing from it. Got enough of it, admittedly a lot more intensely, from my own family.

Have at it.

Does anyone think American education today would teach The French Revolution as anything other than a how-to-manual, contrasted ever so positively with the racist, capitalist-roader, Amurikkkan one?


Dear MM:

Field mice have a field day in our house when winter comes. We used Mouse Magic scent pads (safe for humans and pets); distributed them liberally and THEY WORKED. They "naturally drive mice from homes." No piteous squeaks.



Thank you!!!! You are a lifesaver!!


I am off to renew my license plates. I completely forgot about this until I got stopped by a very nice policewoman last week and told they had expired.

I have been sneaking around on back streets all week to go to buy cigarettes. LOL! Time to get legal!

Back soon, I hope!


Ye olde "Huber has indictments ready" goes up in flames: (interview of Barr, thread)

Jeff Carlson @themarketswork

BARR: Huber had originally been asked to take a look at the FISA applications and the electronic surveillance but then he stood back and put that on hold while the Office of Inspector General was conducting its review.



Maybe Barr is using deception, henry.




Henry, I remember someone touting how Huber was part of 7-D. If memory serves, it was just before the CLINTON CRIME FOUNDATION was taken down...?...


How do you spell "Sun Tzu" in Chinese?



You need the whole transcript. Huber's wrapping up the Hillary! investigation:

Iggy @ 10:07

Your diagnosis may be correct. Who knows. I do know this. Politics is all about influencing people to agree with your political point of view so on a political blog where the major issues can have multiple viewpoints IMO it's to be expected to see people trying to enlist other people to agree with them.

I want to make something clear though. I don't seek pity or need help from anyone. I definitely don't consider myself a victim. I tried your #2 approach for a long time here and it didn't work. When people misbehave and they aren't held accountable it just emboldens them to continue.

I just decided the other day if the community at large is not going to do anything about the misbehavior of a few I would take matter into my own hands. Hopefully your post will cause them to change their behavior. If so then that's good for everyone. If they aren't capable of controlling themselves then the next time I will consider all options available to me to determine how I will respond. I hope it doesn't come to that.

The first Twitter Sleuth Melinda linked at 9:23 is IMO one of the better ones out there. I highly recommend following him.


The Desmond update update reminds me how much I LOVED my peds surg rotation! (other than the fact little kids had to have surgery).
They recover SO quickly! Often RUNNING down the hall POD 2!

Go Desmond! Heal on!


The Huber investigation into HILLARY CLINTON is winding down.

Ahhhhh, I feel much better now. It's WINDING DOWN.

No mention of the FOUNDATION??




These are the best mouse traps we have used.

Locate the trails (usually along wall) and put the trap perpendicular. Don't need any bait as they run across the trap. Unfortunately sometimes it does not kill, those we flush - still better than the glue traps.
