rich,

Thanks for finding the article!

Now we have to wonder if he is receiving a pay-off for retiring and voting for impeachment.

I don't trust anyone any more except Trump.

KevlarKid

we can demonize any political or public figure we care too.

i've known a lot of "vets" who are/were self-serving asswipes. 3 of them were Korean era navy vets who happened to be my uncles. complete morons.

Maw demonized them for our own safety from them when we were kids. doesn't mean we broadbrushed all vets nor did we canonize any of them except the ones i buried after Khe Sahn and Hue (parish altar boy).

school marm (SM) turns shit disturber (SD).

I voted for John Anderson in my first eligible election vote.

I voted for a local dem prosecutor in about '84 'cause of a local issue. My only split ticket.

Was really proud when I voted for Buchanan.

Was prouder when I voted for DJT. Took one of my kids so she could watch the majesty of our governmental system.

Fisher Investments Pension Losses Spike To $1.3 Billion As Iowa Pulls Out.
Because at a private conference he jokingly;
compared gaining a client's trust to "trying to get into a girl's pants" and said that executives who were "not comfortable talking about genitalia should not be in the financial industry".
Presumably if he tried to get into a transgendered "girl's" pants he'd have been ok.

Captain Hate

The Nats run reminds me of the Caps when everyone thought they'd flame out early like always.

Clapper has a mouth like what you'd expect for someone that morbidly obese. He's gotta be first on the Arkancide check list. By the time this is over they'll be calling Fort Marcy Park Katyn West.

MissMarple2

Maryrose,

I care about my children and grandchildren.

I don't own a gun because I am uncoordinated and now can't afford one. I want people like Captain Hate and Buckeye and henry and Ignatz to be able to own one, as they will be able to fight. I will have to figure out how to do other things, like making explosives which I put in plastic garbage bags.

The progs' scorched earth would be very happy to get rid of useless eaters like retirees, so that Medicare may not be useful for us for very long if they get in power.

Why you think that your list proving you don't care about what the dems are pushing should convince us, I don't know.

I want my children and grandchildren to have a bright future in FREEDOM.

I've been out for a bit because my opera (well, I wrote the libretto and my husband wrote the music, which is the harder part) premiered last night in Cozad, Nebraska--because the opera is about the founding of Cozad. Huge crowd, boffo hit, but the real premiere is in Lincoln on November 15th. It will be webstreamed so I'll make sure to give you guys the press release and the url so if you want some opera you can get it!

Captain Hate

Congratulations bubarooni and Miss Marple. As usual Maryland had an outstanding interim head coach in Matt Canada last year but the geniuses running the shitshow decided to bring in Mike Locksley to completely fuck things up. The Browns did the same goddamn thing to Gregg Williams.

It's a curse.

I’ve mentioned my view about the deference to those with military service, and that it is sometimes misplaced. I won’t belabor it. Having worn the uniform does not place one above criticism.

I have wondered about Tulsi’s criticism of and running in opposition to her CINC. I presume other presidential candidates have been reservists and there’s some rulings that permit this?

henry

This almost makes sense:


More than half of the people who were perpetrators or victims of gun violence in Milwaukee in recent years had elevated blood lead levels as children, according to a study released Friday by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Since most of the gun violence is in the hood, and slumlords (aka Aldermen) aren’t big on maintenance, I can’t tell if this is true causation or mere correlation. I strongly suspect the latter.

reservists and guard can but would be subject to DoD policies on some political activities (iirc Graham was and might still be in the reserve). she's been in elective office in hawaii since she was 21 and was vice chair of the dnc up until february 2016 (at which point she endorsed Bernie as the real commie in the race). i suppose i'm not surprised that the controlled opposition would fall for another obama.

Fascinating 'pastime', Catsmeat. Congratulations.

“ elevated blood lead levels”

The authors say they their method can’t prove cause and effect.

From a small amount of reading, it appears there’s little good science re. the level that causes bad effects nor what those effects really are.

That it’s being rolled into the political realm makes be trust the science less.

LOL. She's been treating two "non profits" like her own personal Crime Family Foundation. If the GOP can't find anybody to point that out, it's officially the Party of Romney.

Personally I wouldn't blame Trump for telling the GOP to fuck off. The base is almost 100% behind him but the ruling class is 50% max. I'd play Let's Make a Deal with those donk geriatric codgers. At least they're a real party that listens to their base.

....its own 50 to 70 unit building. Would set up better than other alternatives. I announced that I would be willing to do it at NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA. But, as usual, the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners went CRAZY!

Thanks, everybody! We had a commission and so I just went ahead and did it--the source material is a very interesting but not good book, Mari Sandoz's Son of the Gamblin' Man--but I know a lot about opera and melodrama and I just pared ruthlessly and used all the best bits. It does work, and Ty's music is extraordinary. The libretto was a challenge but writing the music was definitely harder--it's neo-Romantic, I guess I'd say, with some echoes of things like Rock of Ages and Beulah Land in keeping with the pioneer subject (though the other subject is the great painter Robert Henri, who was the son of Cozad's founder, so it's both a Gatsby-like story and a portrait of the artist as a young man story). I'll keep you guys posted about the webstreaming.

Just an observation on the ongoing third worlding of California.

In my 60 years I honestly can't remember seeing anyone's butt naked arse hanging out by the side of the road doing their business. People used to take a little side trip into the bushes or, in a pinch, at least open some car doors.

In the last two or three months on my weekly trips to the local mountains I have been privy [ha!] to no fewer than four bucknekkid white arses squatting beside their cars along the freakin highway. At least three of them were chicks and one actually looked pretty cute.
WTH?
Are we sure it's the homeless dropping all those sidewalk steamers in san fran?
