Hola

Melinda

I suppose that's A way of picturing it.

Dave (in MA)

This thread and its comments seem to be under 2 different URLs from the main page. Don't think I've seen that before.

henry

Warren face painting planting too.

Dave (in MA)

Oh, the other set of comments are actually in a separate thread after all, albeit one with no title.

Dave (in MA)

(rerun from prior thread) Footage has surfaced that shows what was happening on the other side of the chain link fence that made AOC cry.

I thought for sure you were going to rick-roll us, Dave.

Trump plans to visit the Kremlin. I'd suggest skipping the soup course.

Welp, I was two threads back and wondering about the dearth of comments...

This is another thing that I was reminded of when I saw the AOC series of fence photos.

Narciso @ 1:48

Thank you for posting yet another dishonest gaslighting article from the leftwing media that confirms Kelly and Trump shared the same exact opinion on the border wall.

Jack is Back!

TK,

Do you have anything to discuss about Tulsi Gabbard being born in American Somoa? Same as McCain's Canal Zone birth, right?

Porchlight

Early days.

And anyway, remember, the superdelegates decide. Be sure to tell Democrats of your acquaintance that their primary vote doesn't count for shinola.

The Infamous Ignatz

Tulsi Gabbard is difficult to assess as far as her ability to get anywhere is concerned.
Biden is a stupid and way creepy old man who is going nowhere.
Warren is a crazy, dishonest harridan who makes every man recall nightmares of similar old hags from their youth.

But Harris is dangerous. She is always angry, utterly hollow, without empathy and insanely ambitious and dishonest. She's also stupid but not in a debilitating sort of way.
None of that gets her anywhere, but she is also possessed of a Clinton-like ability to shape shift as circumstances require.
With a good economy Trump crushes her.
With a bad one...

Threadkiller

I have to look at it again, Jack. Probably this evening.

The Supreme Court Holdings I posted when Kamala Harris was mentioned before support this simple test
The country is a glass of water,
The father is a glass of water,
The mother is a glass of water,
The child is an empty glass.

When the mixture of the the first three is poured into the fourth, what color does it match?

For example, if the country is blue and the dad is blue and the mom is blue, the final mixture will be blue. That is complete and total allegiance. Natural.

If the child was born in a red country and the mom and dad haveallegiance to a blue country, the child's glass will not be blue or red. That child requires a specific law to bestow citizenship on them. Not-natural.

I promise to analyze the various candidate's and there birth circumstances. :-)

Threadkiller

Quick thought before I go, If American Samoa has a similar status as Puerto Rico, Clarence Thomas will evade the question.

The Infamous Ignatz

I don't know if anyone has actually read Kelly's interview but I would certainly not trust the characterization of it from an author who could write the following [among many other idiocies];

Still, Kelly represented a faction of the administration that maintained at least some independence from Trump, however small.

Imagine having your reasoning faculties so compromised by ideology that you think the members of an administration should be indepedent of and at odds with the president who was elected by the people.
I figure every pres, prog or not, expects and desires loyalty from his staff. What sane person thinks otherwise?

Tom R

Same as McCain's Canal Zone birth, right?

Both of Gabbard's parents are US citizens from birth so that comparison is correct.

henry

Ok, I finally watched Kamala supposedly bitch slap Biden.

http://minx.cc:1080/?post=382028

Who believes this is sincere? It's complete b.s., from the claim that she was in the 2nd integrated class in Berkely (which was already integrated before she was born), and how she was told she couldn't play with the neighbors because she was black (she was already living in Canada by age 7, where she finished grade school and high school).

I wonder how real black people react to her claiming to be black. Obama was bad enough.

I still think the omertà surrounding Gaylord's past is one of the creepiest things I've ever seen. If you see that and don't believe in a deep state, you aren't very smart.

Dave,

As far as I am concerned it's no different.

Captain Hate

I wonder how real black people react to her claiming to be black. Obama was bad enough.

This is an argument that should be avoided.

henry

@samstein

So…. Democracy Corps data shows Biden’s favorability with African American voters went up a net 18% after last nights debate, while Mayor Pete’s went down 10%. Stan Greenberg chalked a lot of it up to defensiveness over the perception that the Obama-Biden legacy was under attack

He was a stupid Schlub who no one would have noticed If McAuliffe had done his business and not had the state police stand down

Jack is Back!

Agree, CH. In fact, I think it is a winner for Trump to avoid any race issues except to note how many are employed compared to other years. Don't even mention Zippy. I have a lot of AA and other kinds of black friends who are professionals and they all agree with how Trump is handling relations. They know he is not some kind of racist. Sigh.

Narciso79

That's stan Greenberg and Carville outfit, maybe she dialed to eleven too many times

I've never read a comprehensible account of that case, henry. Including by "smart conservative media".

Jack, I think Trump appealing to AAs by treating them like adults has the donks petrified.

MissMarple2

Good afternoon!

I am home and am having a martini. 7 hours with my democrat sister in retail manager mode, telling me I should move by myself into Section 8 housing and how I should do this and that and will not even entertain criticism of that stupid bus line they are putting in because the Indy mayor is a democrat, well, I need it!

I tried to keep up on Twitter and JOM on my phone but it was pretty hard, especially because I am used to a bigger screen and a keyboard.

It's very hot and humid, but we sold a boat-load of stuff in the morning. Lots of Hispanics bought my sister's shoes because most of them have small feet. Ran into all sorts of people who knew our family which was fun.

I am going out to the shed tonight to see what else I can sell. We need more merchandise for tomorrow!

Next debate ... They should make Marianne Williamson's podium a giant lava lamp.

Jack is Back!

TomR,

Once, politely, I am going to engage you about your comment on the field in England.

What you have to understand is that baseball is ancient to England since Babe Ruth played there. [you can look it up,] It's national game is Cricket. You play Cricket on an oval field like at Lord's or the Kennington Oval. But for a Cricket nation, you need to show them home rums by the gazoo to get them interested. In Cricket, which by the way it's World Cup is currently on in the UK, hitting 6's {which is a homer for us) is not that unusual. In fact, it is the way you win big time test matches.

So, from my historical and experience perpective, it was the best place to play it at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford.

Joe Biden & Kamala Harris are helpfully reminding Americans that the Democrats were the party of slavery, secession, & segregation. By contrast, the Republican Party was founded on & has always stood for the natural equality of all men & women.
===============
This is from last night, but I am pleased to see Cotton has figured out how to use these democrat statements to advance our side. I believe he has learned this strategy from watching President Trump.

henry

MissM, yes. A big improvement. I only object to his use of past tense. “we’re and continue to be” is more accurate.

Marlene

Maybe Kamala was told she couldn't play with the French Canadians n Montreal and also couldn't take the same bus. *snort*

MM,I just talked to hubby,he said they also had good sales day. he's walking people thru the house showing them them the furniture items. he said he sold two sofas. :)

Marlene

Ha! Dave @ 3:20,I've been scrolling too fast and I thought the same thing!

MissMarple2

Marlene,

I didn't take much stuff over, but I made $30.

My sister sold a bunch of tools, a lawnmower, a bunch of her late husband's clothing,fancy stuff from Saks and Coach, etc.

My sister the teacher sold bookcases, wooden stools, and some stuff like figurines.

We also sold the nurse sister's wrought iron plants stands, a garden statue, and a bunch of her fancy decorative stuff (she moved from a 2-story house to a small 1-story bungalow).

henry

Narciso I’ve seen criticism of that plan as doomed nation building. Haven’t looked into it, so not sure if it is a false claim to derail a true success, or a valid wtf of Kushner. (My brother has met all the Trumps since they got in office. Kushner did not show well. But that was about health care & cancer... so who knows).

Huh,I can't type this afternoon. The dog is depressed because hubby isn't here. He is 95% hubby's dog. I'm good for feeding and having him groomed. :) Last night we walked and the resident rabbit jumped in front of us. He pulled on his leash so hard I almost fell flat on my face. It is a bungee leash,so it stretched.

Porchlight

Was he an avowed neo Nazi? Or is that fake news too? I know the morbidly obese gal that died was separate from the car... how many lies strung this dude up?

I don't know if he was an "avowed neo Nazi" but I"m sure the prosecution portrayed him as one. He was scared and trying to get out of there before he got hurt. So much bullshit.

I know one thing - nothing made the left happier that year than that fat woman's death.

Captain Hate

Yes, Porch, she was more valuable to them dead than alive.

Extraneus

He got life for federal hate crimes, not murder.

Fields pleaded guilty to 29 federal hate crimes charges back in March, including one related to Heyer's death. The judge handed down his sentence on Friday. Fields only spoke to answer "yes sir" when the judge asked if he pleaded guilty. As part of the plea deal at the time, prosecutors dropped their request for the death penalty.

...

Fields will face sentencing next month on separate state murder charges.

Things I have learned about the younger generation:

They do not buy albums or photo frames, because they keep most of their photos on Facebook or their phones.

They don't put much stuff on their apartment walls.

Collectibles are pretty much dead, as they aren't interested.

They are not interested in cookbooks, as they can get recipes off the internet, IF they cook.

Just a different way of living from what we are used to.

henry

How do “hate crimes” pass a Constitutional test? Or are they an emanation?

henry

MissM, wait until privacy laws plus the EU’s copyright law end the internet as they know it. Hard copy will rule once again.

The Infamous Ignatz

The guy was a mental case with a long history of crazy political views. Some of the details of this wiki account are inaccurate [such as he drove into a peaceful demonstration] but most of the details of his life seem accurate and footnoted.
It's quite possible he was scared and drove over people in an attempt to get away or maybe a bit of fear and malice. Who knows?
He surely wasn't going to get off with his history in this political climate though.

Captain Hate

Maybe Fields was guilty of everything, and don't get me started on "hate crimes", but I still find it hard to believe he didn't have subpar legal representation.

Oh,this is too good to check! Howie Carr's producer said he knows someone who was on the plane to Miami and Bernie was sitting in first class. His wife was sitting in coach!

Howie has a new producer,his former producer Steve Robinson (a Maine boy) is off to greener pastures with Howie's blessing.

Tom R

CH @ 4:24

I assume during the 2020 Presidential debates one of the moderators will try to nail Trump for Charlottesville. That would be a good time for Trump to point out the "white supremacist" who organized the rally was a Jewish progressive who voted for Obama twice. I bet all the "Nazis" carrying signs and making racists chants were paid crisis actors funded by the likes of George Soros.

Tom R, they have to wait for the convention in Milwaukee. Mooch can stand no pressure or public exposure. She is a total brainless nincompoop. Imagine Trump quoting from her Princeton senior essay at a rally. Game over. Yet I agree that the Dems will end up with Mooch as Mighty giant ass Casey in a last ditch fail of epic proportions.
