TC, you are learned. Have you ever read about how Geo Washington handled mutiny at Valley Forge?

He was like HITLER

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

TC: "09:17 PM
I am not depressed or surprised by TM's tweet."

I am both depressed and surprised by TMs tweet.

Thomas Collins

Thanks, GUS, but you should talk to my family and friends and co-workers before using learned! :-)

Yes, GW could be a very, shall we say, strict father of our country. Clapper and Brennan et al will fare better under Trump than they would have under GW.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

OK, maybe not THAT surprised ...

Narciso

So remember chalabi well he was pure evil because reasons, well his bank had defaulted in jordan, so he fled their tender judicial mercies, can you imagine his inc asked for 30 billion over a certsin period. They blamed him for curveball even though we now know he was the germans asset lock stock and barrel, there was some other nebulous charge that bob baer amomg others circulated

DrJ

Sadly we don't get many trick-or-treaters any longer. Partially it is because the neighborhood has changed: some kids are old enough that it is not interesting to them, and others are too young.

There also has been a trend to bring kids to a "safe" party instead of the neighborhood.

Back in the day I took our granddaughter around the neighborhood, and I think I enjoyed it as much as she did. Lots of kids were out. No longer, I'm afraid.

Narciso

But who did these sams policy makers put in charge, and did not force out for eight years, malaki who was an admitted iranian and syrian asset.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Speaking of George Washington's strength of purpose

Porchlight

Buckeye, I remember daddy talking about behind descended from one of the Salem witches. Wish I could remember which one - I thought it was also Rebecca Nurse. I'm the x granddaughter of Martha Carrier, hanged in Andover, called the Queen of Hell by Cotton Mather. Her mother was an Ingalls, so Laura Ingalls Wilder is also a relation.

I'm not saying Martha Carrier deserved it, but from all accounts, she was a real piece of work.

Narciso

Now malaki was kept in power because much like another ambitious pol, he loathed the american intervention. Even after maliki left power, chalabi was not even post master in the new cabinets he died not long after

Porchlight

We've had lots of trick or treaters, but our neighborhood is sort of a destination spot.

Porch, I don't know about you, but I'm going TRICK or TREATING in Jack's neighborhood next year.
I'm going to dress up like FREDERICK.

$557?? Hell, I'll keep ringing bells til I get handcuffed.

Narciso

That ambitious was from chicago, btw,

JM Hanes

Narciso:

I thought Maliki was all in for re-upping the status of forces agreement keeping the U.S. in Iraq after the war, but Obama insisted that the agreement be put to a public vote in the Iraqi parliament, which would have been political suicide for Maliki, so he jumped ship.

MissMarple2

GUS,

I told my daughter that story about Frederick collecting $557 and she thought it was hilarious!

Narciso

No he never believed in it, but once fate had put him in, a little like lenin, the war had enabled him.

MissMarple2

Does anyone know if AG Barr has a news conference scheduled for tomorrow? There are a lot of rumors flying around and if he does, I don't want to miss it.

GUS

MissM, Jack seems to be a pretty smart cookie!!!
And Frederick had cash for his own dental bills.

clarice

The original plan was for general Garner to hand over regular administration to the Iraqi tribal leaders and had that occurred Chalabi who was really a fine man would have done a great deal more to improve Iraq than the satrapy we put in place on Colin Powell's insistence.

Narciso

On the bond channel on pluto, they often play the last in the character series, one of them was view to a kill, with christopher walken dialed up to full cowbell as max zorin, and his crazy scheme was to destroy silicon valley with a mega quake. Fast forward nearly 40 years and gruesome newsom is threatening to do to the entire state.

It snowed like a MOFO here today. I had to drive to the Appleton/Green Bay area where I have an office.
Anywho, I was meeting a potential client to sell some of his real estate. He flew in from his home in Beverly Hills. We hit it off well, and we're chatting, and he tells me about his friendships with both General Mattis and Vincente Fox, thru charities and business. He got a text from each of them in the hour plus we walked the building and talked. Amazing. I told him Vincente Fox went to H.S. in Wisconsin, and he knew that. Then he asked me which highschool and wanted to know where it was.
I KNEW.
So when we parted, I asked him, if he'd ever met anyone who knew those details about FOX. He said, no you are the first. Then I told him my State Dept brother knows Mattis.


Do you think he'll give me the business I'm seeking???

Narciso

Odds are Gus, just dont tell hin any other opinions you might have about either.

JM Hanes

Interesting move, for Trump, both literally and figuratively. Wonder if it will affect New York's obvious attempts to go after him, if he's no longer a resident. I certainly don't see Florida asking for his tax returns any time soon.

MissMarple2

Wow, GUS. I hope so!

Then you can maybe dig up some information for us!

I really don't know anything about the new Ukrainian president, but I kinda feel for the guy. I wonder how long he can last?

Melinda

TC-

I disagree enthusiastically with your view that it's the delivery, not the message. Trade from Nations exists today, just not free trade, leaving aside the Open Borders Cherry on top. The battle is over subsidized trade, and in the mix, the encouraged theft of ideas. How is that possible? Corrupt officials rewarding each other as a matter of due course in negotiating the "Deals".

Where it makes a difference is when Nations trade amply and openly amongst themselves, under the premise of Good Faith. Returning to that middle ground is the essence of Free Trade, enforced by the threat of tariffs, which are financed at the far dock first, before they can even leave the pier.

Melinda

And I was disagreeing with your 9:19PM, Shoulda mentioned that.

A logical short thread on why Putin wanted Hillary elected and NOT Trump.

IF you wanted to effectively frame him as working with a foreign power, Russia made no sense to me, anyway. He's my age and probably has the same lingering distrust of Russia that I do, having been brought up during the Cold War.

GUS

Very smart of you Narciso. He is a CALI LIFER, very wealthy very nice, but........He read the text from MATTIS to me....EXTREEEEEEEEEEEEEEMELY open about his distaste for TRUMP. The customer is a Viet Nam era USMC VET/corporal. Mattis was USMC, they are friends now. He's RICH, Mattis is famous.

Zelensky's a bit like Italy's Grillo. A comic, yet as we know, comics have a tendency to be very, very bright, and amazingly observant. He's cut of the same cloth.

This is a long and detailed thread about Strzok lying about Flynn. Lots of screen caps of documents. It's too late for me to really dissect this tonight, but people who are used to reading legal documents and understand laws about lying to the FBI and the courts may be able to verify what this guy says. (He's not the real John Huber.)

GUS

Hey Mel, your post on trade/free trade etc, was great. I've had in person conversations with you, and with Henry, and John, where, (as smart as I think I am), you guys really really impressed and schooled me. You are certainly a detail guy, as is Henry, IOW, you know your shyte. Good Comics, are generally very very quick witted, which translates to many things. Being "bright" is hard to define, but you and I, know it when we see it. Comics are generally unconventional, in that, they risk a lot to pursue a dream, that is held hostage to others "in charge", giving them a shot. The WORLD CLASS guitarist, that I taught, when he was a teen and formative, is as SMART/BRIGHT an individual as I've ever known. Funny quick witted, and original, one of a kind fellow. Those in the MFM, who are generally "goats" and not bright, judge others in a way that PUNISHES those who they disagree with, and LAUDS dimbulbs like OBAMA for his TROUSER CREASES. Just as the VICTOR WRITES HISTORY, hippy loser, addled PROFESSORS and approved libtard writers, are paid and given a forum for their pablum. Trump has turned that upside down. THEY NEED TO DESTROY HIM, so no one else will DARE to challenge their $TATU$ QUO.

Strzok should someday be a psychological, criminal, sociological study. There could certainly be a myriad of Univeristy depts, that could create a class on STRZOK and his actions. Seriously. Including his tete a tete, admitted to by Page, and never denied by Strzok.
The "snarling" aggressive attempts to absolve himself from CLEARLY CORRUPT actions. A fool could see that STRZOK intentionally looked the other way vis a vis RODHAMS' crimes. The tough guy act, all the while posing as a victim of a smear. (who was it that pointed out his wife being the true victim) What have all of the OBAMA CABAL of CONSPIRACY done?? LIED and DENIED. The phone messages, the INSURANCE POLICY on and on and on and on. The connections to "ANDY" (obviously McCabe), the disdane for the LEGALLY and DULY elected PRESIDENT.
The RIGHTOUSNESS and the beliefs, that STRZOK and his CRIMINAL CO-CONSPIRATORS, were doing GOOD WORKS...........

GUS

{{{Specifically, Trump held up $391 million in American military hardware and financial aid to Ukraine – which is at war with Russia after the Russian seizure and continual occupation of what was until 2014 a Ukrainian province – until Ukrainian prosecutors commenced a criminal investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.}}}
This is HORSE SHIT, that Andrew Napolitano passes for fact and reason. Is this douche bag auditioning for MSNBC????

Part of the clown Napolitano's bullshit, is non-sequitor, and most of it is not supported by facts.

Are you sure she was hung in Andover? I grew up there and didn’t know we hung people. Any chance you know where?

JM Hanes

On 2nd thought, this whole impeachment vote seems less Kabuki than simple placeholder. The Dems know they've got nothing at the moment, but time being short, they want to have an impeachment inquiry up and running 24/7. That way if they can come up with anything even remotely plausible, they can just plug it in and hit the accelerator.

Melinda

Oh, and Jane, Hunter is in no way the biggest money launderer. He’s just the easiest name to spot right now. The big fish are just getting linked to...

JM Hanes

And even if they never do come up with something truly untoward, they'll have gotten plenty of sword-of-Damocles mileage out of it.

JMH, you are wise. My oft posted well thought out theory (heh heh), is logical. It is not speculative, nor does it involve CHESS PIECES in a DIMENSION, that does not exist.
The FULL COMMIE LEFT. Obama all the way down, with the MFM and almost all off the SWAMP FED PAID BUREAUCRACY, mobilized to DESTROY DJT, the very night he SHITCANNED Cankles von Hot Sauce. The dimbulb money grubbing hangers on, are LIBTARDS, and obviously hated DJT, because they NO LONGER HELD ANY SWAY. The FISA ABUSES, will be epic, should We prevail. The DIRTY RODHAM SERVER, existed for Obvious and illicit nefarious purposes. Obama's lies vis a vis his FEIGNED IGNORANCE or lack of knowledge of this SERVER, and the purpose of it being OUTSIDE of FOIA or any other scrutiny, is ABSOLUTELY PROVABLE, should there be a conduit to get this TRUTH OUT and on some sort of record. This WHODUNIT, is not very difficult to prove. BUT, CAN ANYTHING RATIONAL and TRUE be PROVEN and accepted, in the CULTURE that FULL COMMIE DEMOCRATS have created.
THE LEVEL OF CONSPIRACY on the LEFT, can and SHOULD be FANTASTICAL READING for future generations of LOYAL PATRIOTIC AMERICANS.
It's obvious to me. ALL OF IT.

jim nj

Melinda,

I don't know of any way to consistently time the market, but I would agree that trying to figure out if it is over or under valued before making a decision is not a good idea.

I inadvertently timed the market correctly once. Well, actually it was Solomon Smith Barney that did it for me. When they acquired Schroder they took my Schroder 401(K) and converted it to one of theirs. They switched it all to cash instead of duplicating my positions. When the dot.com bubble burst later in 2000 I was still all in cash.

I figure I would have suffered a 40-50% loss otherwise.

GUS

ALL OF THIS RANCID CONSPIRACY, is a direct result of OBAMA being an incompetent and immoral COMMIE WANNABEE. You could ask yourself, why smart educated successful men and women, with money power and a comfortable existance FOREVER, continue to lie cheat and steal.???????? IDEOLOGY. EMOTIONAL DYSFUNCTION and flawed CHARACTER from JUMP STREET, and SYCOPHANTIC support with a dash of NO FEAR of ANY CONSEQUENCES.
In other words, BAD MORAL CHARACTER, long held ANGER for GOD KNOWS what.

You and I, never wronged pigs like these.

Down to the final 10 pages of Justice on Trial. The story of Kavanaugh's confirmation.
Terrific read! I'm all riled again at Dem perfidy. How can TM countenance them? Lying cockroaches, the lot of them.

Narciso

Well why is it imcompetent because billions of tax payer dollars were 'lost' that was the point of the exercise. The pattern was set by larry summers who would later abet zuckerbergs fraud, but he and fellow elf jeffrey sachs thought this ponzi scheme where the most connected people get dibs was capitalism.

GUS

Capn, I don't remember whether I ever told you as we chatted on the phone, BUT......I once did some research on the literal subject of AMERICAN LYNCHINGS. I would hear LIBTARDS and DEMOGOGUES and Black race hustlers, spew nonsense over and over and over about, EXTREME RACIAL atrocities.
Of course any educated and informed American, knows of RACIAL STRIFE, and POST CIVIL WAR, where HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of "WHITEY", fought against slavery and the vestiges of racial bigotry that were not extinguished. From re-construction up and until Jim Crow, was LEGISLATIVELY beaten to a pulp, I learned that there were approximately 4-5000 LYNCHINGS. HORRID. But that data and easily available information went into the GOOOOOOOOOOLAG GARBAGE DISPOSAL, in the last few years.
WHY??

The Infamous Ignatz

--There also has been a trend to bring kids to a "safe" party instead of the neighborhood.--

Just got back from our church's "Trunk or Treat".
10 or 15 people doll up the trunk of their car with Halloween decorations and get in costume and the kids make the rounds. A friend and I refilled the candy coffers in the trunks and kept the trashes emptied. Grilled dogs and chips and hot chocolate. Cake walk, kids games, bounce houses, etc.
Usually have 700-1,000 people. Lotta fun.

jim nj

Iggy,

Thank you for the feedback on California.

I didn't realize there were so many opposing forces involved in just trying to keep a power-line right-of-way clear of combustibles.

After a Hurricane years before Sandy, NJ mandated that the utilities clear there right-of-ways. We had convoys of out-of-state arborists going up and down every street and highway.

I was driving on NJ State Rte. 4, which runs from the GWB to Paterson, and saw a row of 15 tree-cutting vehicles working the right-of-way. Like an army they inched along cutting, not just branches, but trees too.

Cop cars, towed trailer warnings, etc. they were very well organized.

Narciso

I hadnt realized it had spread as far as andover, i think thats where martha was born though.

The Infamous Ignatz

We have those out of state convoys right now, Jim, and have for a year or two. But with the amount of line to clear {California has 25,526 miles of higher voltage transmission lines, and 239,557 miles of distribution lines, two-thirds of which are overhead, according to CPUC}
it's an endless job.

GUS

JimNorCal. You've probably seen me screed about how Mr Kavanaugh was attacked by the FULL COMMIE.

What kind of idiot, host or not, could misinterpret the FEINSTEIN set up and attempt to DESTROY a good, honorable, and completely decent man, in such a despicable manner. AFTER THE PROCESS is OVER, after the full commie DEMOTARDS, had an open, transparent and honest opportunity to oppose a SCOTUS candidate for THEIR reasons. THEY SPRING THE DISHONEST CIRCUS, that they did.
What would YOU, do to win such a disgusting out of bounds gambit????? JIM, what could YOU PERSONALLY or IDEOLOGICALLY GAIN, to sacrifice the HIGH GROUND, that THEY SACRIFICED, in the attempt to POLITICALLY or IDEOLOGICALLY do, what FEINSTEIN et al did?
FEINSTEIN is 140 years old (approx). Why would she go to such lengths to LIE and ABUSE the open process???? Answer: EVIL.......serving the WRONG MASTER for your ego.

Iggy,

Yes NJ is more manageable for the utilities, relatively smaller power-grid, but they weren't kidding around that time when they did the mandated tree-clearing.

You could see that they were cutting so aggressively that only a minor tune-up would be needed 10 years hence.

PSE&G, my supplier has a good reputation management-wise. So good that they now run the former LILCO out on Long Island.

I don't know if they had to put in a bid for the job or if it was just handed to them, but complaints in Long Island went way down after they took over.

Maybe JIB is familiar with them?

The Infamous Ignatz

IMO, the problem with moderates like TM is they have a more difficult time understanding the true radicalism of radicals. And they also tend to see radicalism as equidistant from them on both sides of the divide.
They are tragically mistaken on both counts.
The left as it currently exists is wholly authoritarian and intent on erecting an effective one party state and quite openly mock and are hostile to not only traditional values but what used to be considered universal rights like life, liberty and property.
And the right as exemplified by Trump is considerably to the left of the sainted JFK, so just exactly how is that either radical or divisive? Divisiveness on the right has come to mean not smiling and apologizing when a prog tries to kick you in the nuts.
Moderates think there is some golden era of civility we can go back to. The rest of us listen to the reality of the left and know better. Civility to a progressive is a sign of weakness that further radicalizes them. The gentility the mods seek is an unavailable fantasy that seeks to nullify the plain reality the left is pushing us toward a choice between servility or open conflict.
America needs its new Patrick Henry far more than its new Dale Carnegie.

jim nj

I think Trump made a smart decision to move his tax domicile to Florida from New York.

He will pay a lot less in local taxes and it;s thumb to the nose at all those NY officials who want to expose his prior tax returns.

If I won the lottery the first thing I would do is swap out my tax domicile from NJ to Florida or Texas.

GUS

Ig, I am as opinionated and dead cinch certain of my conclusions, as anyone here. You included.
I have recognized the SEGMENT of our supposed CONSERVATIVE BRETHREN, that disturbs me. Not just the Bilbo Bulwark AHOY!!! Kristols. This greasy little pig, is obvious. He was raised by an intellectual and principled conservative MAN.
Bill Kristol, is not a principled MAN. He is a coddled, not convicted to the very values, that he has heretofore espoused. He inherited a BRAND, that his FATHER created, believed in, and LIVED. Charlie Sykes, is a man I've known. He is a SITUATIONALLY PRINCIPLED loser. I could wax nostalgic on Sykes, but being a Milwaukeean, I know his history. And I remember EXACTLY, when I became a DJT supporter. It was when Charlie SUCKS, portrayed DJT, as an "UNCOUTH" man and self promoter. I wanted to call Charlie SUCKS first 2 WIVES for comment.

I think the NY Times has worn TM down. He's been heroically reading it for our benefit and he's now a casualty. Prolonged exposure, you know. I think they put something in the ink that impedes the immune response system.

Tom Maguire owns this forum, and he is not without some great qualities. So FUCKING WHAT?
Am I supposed to accept CRAP, for fear of making the HOST uncomfortable??? Are MagCuires posts, different from MINE, or YOURS, or MARYROSE'S???

In truth, I've been my own moderator, and I've been less strident for a long time.

You know what disgusts me - even more than the sleazy democrats like Schiff and Pelosi? What disgusts me are the holier than thou Never Trumpers who prefer form over substance. They would be just as happy with a Mr. Cool President whose agenda was to tear down everything that is sacred to us or a smooth talking, seemingly erudite JFK whose bungling almost started a nuclear war.

The next are the faint hearted borderline Republican Senators who don't give a damn what the people want primarily because they look down on Mr. and Mrs. Average America. I'm beginning to think they have no soul.

Trump was my last choice candidate. When the others fell by the wayside, and he got the nomination to battle Hillary I smartened up, held my nose and voted for him.

And I'll do it again with great enthusiasm this time.

While TM may not like Trump's style, I would argue that the other side is even worse.

Trump is a character? The opposition has none!

I'm supposed to admire Feinstein, Schumer, Schiff, Maxine, Pelosi, et al, because they are better people than Trump? What a maroon.

I don't mean that as an attack on TM, but I'm walking through this with open eyes and ears and I don't like the slimy things the opposition is doing to Trump.

The incongruety of a LEFTIST, being one of the richest capitalists of HISTORY, Amuses me.
Self awareness, and Introspection is OFTEN LOST to and upon the EXTREMELY successful persons, who GOT RICH QUICK. Not that there is anything wrong with that success.
Barack Obama's BESTIE, is RICHARD BRANSON.

At some point, wasn't DICK BRANSON, "RICH ENOUGH".
Probably, and so was HENRY FORD. But CAPITALISM and PROFIT MOTIVE, pays for a SHITLOAD of kids braces, happy lives, futures, and the ability for the KIDS to get a better college education.

Break out the next news coverage of Trump. He moved to Florida to save money because he is evil and wants to starve poor NYC children.

People look after their own interests when they move out of high tax-rate states. In an odd way of looking at it - they pay you to leave.

NJ had one hedge fund billionaire who moved his company and himself to Florida. The next year there was a noticeable hole in expected tax revenues.

Rinse and repeat a few more times and all the high-tax states will be in trouble. And the SALT tax revised regulations are meant to encourage that.

Barbara......FANTASTIC.....logical, and heart felt emotional post. KUDOS.
You made a couple of poignant points/notions.

First, Barbara, you pointed out that SCHIFF, PELOSI, SCHUMER, et al, are dirty duplicitous lying scum. WHAT KIND OF CONSERVATIVE, or even ENGAGED not liberal, doesn't see the SICK EVIL DISHONESTY??
Barbara, I once believed that being a CONGRESSMAN, would be a fantastic rewarding and honorable job, FOR ME.
I am not NAIVE, but apparently, I once was.
THE ENTIRE FRAME WORK of the DEMOCRAT PARTY, is predicated on LIES and DISHONESTY.
Regardless of whether you OR I, trust the weak and feckless GOPe. We only have 2 choices.
THE FULL COMMIE DEMOTARD PARTY and the MAIN STREAM MEDIA..........SUCKS.

Is Halloween dangerous for children? No, Chicago is.

Jim Nj. Long long ago, I made the ANALOGY, that DJT is RODNEY DANGERFIELD, in CADDYSHACK.
UNCOUTH, RUDE, but very skilled and a WINNER.

Well said, Jim. I never expected that I would be such a determined Trump supporter. He is rough around the edges, to be sure. But I have never seen a President work so diligently on behalf of all the American people. His focus and energy astound me. His accomplishments in such a short period of time are amazing.

He arrived in Washington with an agenda and a plan. Every single speech he gave during the campaign echoed what he intended to do, and he hasn't diverted from what he promised.

When you look back at our history, I doubt you'll find a more resolute president determined to ensure peace and prosperity than Donald Trump with the possible exception of George Washington. At the end of the day, given the corruption that we've seen unfold in these last 3 years, we cannot afford to lose this man. I only pray that at the end of his second term we will have someone of equal ability and strength of purpose to succeed him.
