Hello!

The Infamous Ignatz

It is possible with this field of stump headed, prissy storm troopers that Trump might even win reelection amid a recession.

GUS

Skinny clown Beatoff, will take NO-ONE'S AR-15, his threat is to use AR-15's and GOVERNMENT to take 2nd amendment rights away. FASCIST!!!

Beatoff would get his pansy ass kicked in any throw down.

Blame the Electoral College!

We know they won't be blaming the communists behind their platform.

Melinda,

That extended ski season in Australia is a harbinger for Northern Hemisphere winter approaching.

I hope my daughter gets this job she interviewed for today, as she can ride the new bus system downtown. The only trouble we would have is that in inclement weather I would have to drive her to the stop, but it's only 6 blocks.

MUCH better than trying to drive through snow or ice, plus she wouldn't have to pay for parking.

Hey, that UAW guy arrested for embezzlement made me think.

How much of that embezzled money went to the DNC?

It seems to me that the Planned Parenthood decision also keeps another pot of money out of democrat coffers.

I wonder how much of this is happening and we aren't paying attention. Trump also tweeted the huge amount of money illegal immigration and bad trade deals cost us.

I wonder if Mnuchin has been wearing a green eye shade and looking at the books.

I SO enjoy watching this administration!

The two big Congressional wins in North Carolina on Tuesday, Dan Bishop and Greg Murphy, have reverberated all over the World. They showed a lot of people how strong the Republican Party is, and how well it is doing. 2020 is a big, and very important, Election. We will WIN!

Thanks, Ig!

Iggy,

In "transparency" I'd get rid of all the "sin" taxes too.

Alcohol, tobacco, fuel, etc.

They are regressive taxes that affect the poor and middle-class more than the rich.

Any social taxes meant to force behavioral norms should be extinguished.

KevlarKid

Let's put sin taxes on bishops that are all down with the sodomites and transvestites. Separation of church and state, ha!

Momto2

KK - Do you recommend the Emergen-C brand? According to their website, they have 8G. of carbs and 7g of sugar per 1000 so X5 would be WAY over my daily limit. Is there another one that doesn't have sugar? Thanks for the information!

This is an excerpt from a book by Thomas Haines. I remain firm in my position that the FBI is operating under its own standards, and is doing a lot of stuff we would not like if we knew.

Brooklandssf

Trump's still going to run an ad with Beto's quote, over and over again.

It's the perfect wedge issue. Because then the Dem nominee either has to ignore it (which lets the GOP grab all the gun voters) or challenge it.

Trump's response: "Do you reject what Beto said?"

If they clearly reject what Beto said, the base goes ballistic. If they don't, then the gun voters go GOP.

Win, win

Same goes with all the nutso quotes from the "Climate Change Debate." Run quote after quote in ads. "This is the Democrats."
"But, those people aren't the nominee!"
"So, do you reject their position?"

Their base isn't desperate enough to reject those positions, or to support politicians who explicitly reject those positions. Not in 2020.

Maybe in 2026, during Pence's first term, the Democrat base will get desperate enough to win that they'll be willing to bring back the DLC. But not next year.

Anything short of "Beto was wrong, it's perfectly acceptable to own an AR-15, and I will not support any efforts to take them away from owners" is an admission that Beto is telling the truth about the Democrats position.

That is going to make a smoking hot ad

Heard that College Admissions Slut Felicity Huffman is asking for house arrest and no prison time for her crime.

Prosecution said that would be tantamount to her "padding around her mansion waiting for curfew to end."

She goes into the hallway, and hears what sounds like crying.

She goes downstairs and finds her husband in tears on the couch.

"Honey, what's wrong?" she asks.

He says "Do you remember that night we were in the back of my pick up truck, and your father caught us, and said if I didn't marry you he'd see to it I'd get twenty years in jail?"

"Yes, of course I remember, Honey."

"Well...I was just thinking... I would have gotten out today."

She may be an obnoxious jerk. But I would MUCH rather see the people who took the bribes (and the university and gov’t officials above them who knew about it and looked the other way for years) go to prison than the people who paid the bribes.

She may be an obnoxious jerk

She's not even. She said:
I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney's Office.
I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions.
I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly.
My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty.

If that's not a sincere and non-obnoxious apology, it certainly gets an A for effort. Now the other actress, the Aunt Becky one, not only said "Anyone who could afford to do this would", but she pled not guilty and is trying to play the world's biggest victim. AFAIC, Aunt Becky should get 10 years, Felicity Huffman (who, as I understand it, only faces a month in jail anyway) can pad around her house until curfew is over.

Cool case described by the Pacific Legal Foundation here:
https://fedsoc.org/commentary/podcasts/explainer-4-offensive-license-plates

A guy who is a big soccer fan wanted vanity plates to read COYW. This is the slogan of his team. The team wears white shirts and the slogan is "Come On, You Whites". This was denied by the DMV. They deny a lot of stuff and the rules are fairly arbitrary. It's a case of needing to fit in with THEIR idea of community-conformity.

To be fair, the DMV wants to deny any plate that ref'ed a color (example: ZIN RED was denied to a red Zinfandel wine lover). Besides racial stuff, they also worry that gang colors could lead to outbreaks of violence.

But ask yourself: out of a thousand people, how many would notice and take offense at COYW? Our tax dollars, being spent ....

Jack, the sorriest thing is that USC, while tough to get into (11% of applicants accepted), it's still a lot easier than Yale (6%) or Harvard (5%). The problem is that these actresses don't have kids who've bothered to apply themselves academically. But, sure, I think you're right; seems like the old-fashioned way would be to offer to chip in on the new planetarium or whatever.

i'm taking some high-priced Superfoods that are backed by some science that has worked for me.

they not only revitalize my red blood cell producing capacity, these provide the mineral complex that is essential to electrolyte balance.

one is a capsule-based formula. "Balance of Nature". the other is a green powder "Grown in America Superfood Organic". it is a great tasting formula that will have you craving it.

the science behind these two products is legit and the organic/non-gmo certification is important in keeping the toxic load from fruits and vegetables fresh to a minimum (you never know where fresh actually comes from these days).

i've been on both for 14 days now. clears brain fog and cuts cravings.

i have a 3rd formula which is a mix of Gundry's red and green supplements, a vanilla flavored plant protein meal replacement shake and a dehydrated green juice powder.....mix with fresh blueberries. i only need one solid meal per day.

no cravings.

the Himalayan salt is the ticket for getting a good band of mineral-base for electrolyte if you want an alternative to "waters."

blee-blah-blee....lying sack of crap. Before they stroked that check to lube the transaction, did Felicia REFLECT on what she was doing? Or did she GET OFF on the sneaky way of using one's wealth?

After the crime is committed anybody's noggin can regret and feel shame. But what difference does it make? Putting on the big "Don't Hurt Me" button after the fact is bogus.

BTW, she said she'd accept the consequences of her deed. ya right. Confinement for at least a year. those a-holes should be glad i am not an officer of the court....and that Devil's Island closed long ago.

jim nj--I am concerned with ARTERIAL blood flow problems with the symptoms you describe, not venous. Which is EXTREMELY common in long-time smokers. Peripheral vascular disease.


You do NOT need venous ultrasound to evaluate this, which may be why it is denied, but ultrasound of femoral arteries, or doppler flow studies. I am concerned you are not getting enough blood flowing to your legs when you increase the amount of muscle oxygen consumption.

And yes, sometimes spinal stenosis is the cause too.

I don't think it's a some trace mineral problem, but a plumbing problem. And God bless vitamin C if all you need to do is take 5000mg a day to ream them open again! You may get diarrhea from that dose. if you do, just cut back to half, then increase.
