So Cooper is a life long herpetologist?

Mary Rose

I don’t have any problem with organ donation. Are their any moral or ethical limits to harvesting children?

Pinandpuller

*There.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Clear difference from the private sector... in the private sector you don’t have to get past a filibuster to hire someone.--

Yeah, and another difference from the CEO canard is CEOs don't have the CIA and FBI conducting coups against them nor China and Russia and the entire media assisting them.
Ike whipped the Nazis but learned to love the DC bureaucracy he railed against because defeating the Nazis was considerably easier. And Ike's DC mission was a veritable cakewalk compared to Trump's.
The Swamp is not a commercial competitor. They are an entrenched Viet Cong, but the political situation has not advanced to where we are yet able to destroy DC to save it. It is unlikely they will allow a political solution, as Trump is trying to use, and a solution by other means will be necessary. That doesn't mean Trump isn't doing his best nor doing a good job. It means some solutions work and some don't. It is unlikely the political one, which is the one constraining Trump, can work.

Captain Hate

You know what would make Independence Day perfect? A public whipping of John Roberts.

GUS

The FULL COMMIE and the SWAMP all in BEATING those whom they disagree with. The MFM lying and aiding them.

To NOT have a GUN today is suicide. The Police not coming to aid of VICTIMS of ANTIFA. All while dishonestly accusing POTUS DJT of defending a rag tag bunch of wannabee Nazi's.

lock and load.

Jane

The 4th of July celebration will cost the taxpayer about $20million. We have paid out $17million on behalf of Congress for sexual harassment crimes.

The Infamous Ignatz

My understanding is SCOTUS sent the census question back to the court and asked the administration to better justify the question.
Why is that prog judge's knickers up tight if Trump tweets he hasn't given up on a question SCOTUS said wasn't over?
Did I misunderstand the dread butt pirate?

clarice

Yes, Iggy.

The Infamous Ignatz

Yes, to my first sentence or last?

henry

About Article I, Section 9 “No Title of Nobility Shall Be Granted by the United States.” Why is it referred to by Dems (don’t make fun of us) lately as the emoluments clause. Seems to me that continued use of a title after office, plus all the “$17 million on behalf of Congress for sexual harassment crimes “ is closer to “titles of nobility” than someone renting a hotel room is to emoluments.

The Infamous Ignatz

Bible says Philistines came from distant island. Jesus Seminar types scoffed.
DNA says Philistines came from Southern Europe which just so happens to be chock a block full of distant islands.
Hmmm.

Tom R

Name one friend you've got FOXHOLIO.

The better question to ask is how many people here are mature enough to respect my opinion even if they disagree with it. Whatever that total is those are the people that I think make a positive contribution to the blog.

The Infamous Ignatz

Right click.

Pinandpuller

Speaking of the Gadsen Flag, henry, the snakes used to work for us. Or US if you will.

Ignatz,

Why do people hate Christians so much?

Their vitriol against believers far outweighs anything said about them from the Christian community. It's really very sad.

The Infamous Ignatz

Sorry, MM. I should have labeled that as a gag from the Babylon Bee.

henry

Pin, that was before the Irish immigrated. St Pat & all.

MissMarple2

Iggy,

Well, that's a relief!

I have to say, I have run across a few on Twitter who would have posted that graphic.

The Infamous Ignatz

As to your question MM, isn't it obvious? It's because we're so much better than them. :P

Actually it's because as the Bible says those with an unregenerate heart are the enemies of God, as we all were at one time. And the unregenerate heart hates its enemies.

I was unaware that the M1A2 Abrams tank had a journalist-triggering forcefield system that sends any woke reporters within a 30-mile radius into panicked hysterics.

why does the admin have to justify this.

FYI, our friend Gus is in the hospital. Broken bones in his foot, out of surgery. Healing expected to take a while.

henry,

Thanks for the info.

GUS, Get well soon!

No one likes you. You're a rude little punk.

Gus,

HOW THE HELL DID YOU BREAK YOUR FOOT?

Well said, Ig.

What’d he do Henry, drop some guitars on his foot?

Another Bob

Nicely done Jane. Should have thought of that myself.

I don’t know what Gus did to his foot. I’ll find out later.

Buckeye

We were planning to spend tomorrow evening at one of my sister's homes. They have a great view of their town's fireworks from their back porch.

She called to tell my my BIL just returned from the Doctor, he has shingles.

He is insisting nobody gets near him.

I may just have to watch reruns of the tanks rolling thru DC instead:)

Buckeye, that reminds me I need Shingrix injection #2. I hope it is available these days. Had to wait 18 months for the first.

lyle

Just got my first (of two) shingles vaccines last week, Buckeye. I REALLY want to avoid that nasty shit.

lyle

And tell your BIL that shingles is not contagious. Thankfully...

Jack is Back!

Fireworks in Southampton down the beach from Dave Koch's house, where they usually are held. This time over Shinnecock Bay and not the ocean. Makes it difficult for the crowds. Nowhere to park except along Meadow Lane. Dangerous. But what the hell, let the Village sort out the victims or dead.

Me, for the first time I am in Florida. Can't believe I am missing our 4th of July parade.

I missed anyone making that request of Trump.

Good luck. Shingles vaccines are known to be 35% effective.

I decided to play the odds. so far successful.

Ran into town on the way home from work (groceries, beer). Chairs and rope taping off the main two streets for tomorrow’s parade. No open spots.

Jack,

I am going to go find a thread I ran across earlier today, but Stu wasn't done yet.

He was talking about the Statue of Liberty and quoting the dedication speech by a New York Senator, who mentioned the Colossus of Rhodes and other ancient monuments, and he wondered how many high school graduates even knew of them.

I think he is probably done and I will go get it and post it here.

Mel, Russians, money laundering, Germans (aka NAZIs), & Trump. Plus all the sudden court stupidity. Coup strike 2?

Something interesting about the Kiwi browser. It allows you to disable AMP websites. What are AMP websites, you ask?

Google's AMP project ensures that websites load on your phone even if you have a slow network connection. But to make that happen, the pages are stripped down to the bare minimum and although they're functional, they're not all that good to look at.

So, if you're not a fan on AMP websites, you can easily disable them on the Kiwi browser.

...

Once you're done, Kiwi will directly load websites instead of fetching an AMP version from Google. You can also turn on the Do Not Track option from the same menu which will prevent websites from tracking you.

I for one have never heard of AMP websites and didn't realize I was interacting with Google even when using other than Chrome browsers.

lyle

Both my parents got it, Jack. I AM playing the odds. Per my PCP, this vaccine has an efficacy about twice what you cited. We’ll see.

Melinda

From the looks of that, quite a few decades of tax fraud tabs are coming due. I would venture even ole Bob Woodward's got one coming....

1,600 entities for tax fraud, and that's just Germany, using the British Virgin Islands. This is just starting to roll downhill>

henry

Melinda, interesting target list. Deserving even. Yet I expect Trump and patriots who fund him to be hardest hit. Because globalization.

henry

Shingles, my dad got it. And my 13 year younger brother as well. Nasty disease.

Melinda

henry-

I wonder if someone, as a matter of doing business with him, offered a little extra in the terms to "sweeten the price" if a different escrow account was used and the amounts might be a bit different than contracted, if Deutschebank was the holder of said account?

I don't have the imagination for this chit like I used to...

joan

I read henry's 6:06 about the judge's transcripts on the citizenship census question, and made the mistake of reading leftist responses. They are demented and depraved, living in a world that is unrecognizable in its arrogant hatred of anyone who disagrees with them.

henry

@realDonaldTrump

All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare. How about taking care of American Citizens first!? That’s the end of that race!

Melinda

And of course no funds came from any other source, no this is totally isolated to DbK. Yep, the only one.

[ waves at Angela ]

(no wonder she's got the shakes.....)

henry

Oops, that Trump tweet is a week old.

henry

Melinda, escrow games? Who knows. I always made sure the escrow was in an interest bearing account that paid me.

Jack is Back!

My favorite 4th was 1993 in Buenos Aires, where at the US Ambassador's residence, I got to meet and gab, smoke cigars and drink champagne with W. E, B, Griffen or Aka Bill Burroughs. Quite the guy.

Melinda

And after reading some of the related links I end up back in Puerto Rico.

Imagine that....

Melinda

Sure,

Over pay for a nice condo, deal falls through, wire me back my laundered funds.

What could go wrong?

Why wouldn’t we want to know how many citizens we have in the US?After all they are the only ones who can vote legally. It will also give us, finally, an accurate picture of the illegal population in US. Could it be Dems want to facilitate voter fraud? But there is no vote fraud?

henry

Escrow is prior to inspection, no?

Jane: "The 4th of July celebration will cost the taxpayer about $20million. We have paid out $17million on behalf of Congress for sexual harassment crimes."

Great comment, Jane.

And, those assholes* don't really care about money -- when did they ever care about spending? Never! Just think about the millions and billions they're prepared to spend taking care of the poor and wretched potential voters streaming across our southern border.

*I hate to shock the people who don't like foul language, but, sometimes, you gotta tell it like it is. I've used crazy, demented, unbelievable, etc., but, when you get right down to it, the left is diseased and filthy; and, if we don't support our president, these same people will soon run our country. Imagine, another eight to ten years of someone raising their hand for full-term abortions, illegal voters, and free sex-change for all.

Narciso79

Wouldn't want anything to go wrong there:

maryrose, 7:26: "I have spent the 4th in Rome in 1975 and last year I was returning from France."

The first year we lived in England, we spent 4th of July in Holland Park, which was close to our new flat, and we were cold and shivering and wearing coats. :) I can remember how much I missed the USA.

I never dreamed the democratic voters were willing to shed our ideals and descend to the delirium possessing them now.

There's going to be a great reckoning for us all soon, if we don't defeat them in 2020.

Jane

Joan,

The thing I find mortifying is thr liberal view of what is going on, and Trump v the conservative view. The liberal media reports nothing, and all they do is trash Trump. So people who wouldn’t put up with it for a second know none of it, or think it’s “fake news”. It’s a visious cycle.

Re: shingles. My husband got the shingles. He is tough as a boot and doesn't like to admit he feels bad, but he's ready to take the new two-shot shingrix. Our doctor told him they should prevent another bad 'attack' (that's not what he called it, but he said my husband could get them again.)

I got the one shingles shot a few years ago because of what I saw happening to my husband. And, I'm ready to take the two-shingrix. Shingles is a mean disease with subsequent outbreaks.

I spent a 4th at Independence Hall, a friend was in the Park Service Police, so I got the “VIP” tour. Big crowd around the Liberty Bell, so I didn’t try to get in that building. Long ago. Our local small town parade is equally powerful in its own way.
