I haven’t kept up in days and now I am first? Seems so unfair

Brought over from end of the previous thread:

The Telegraph
@Telegraph

Tony Blair was bidding for contracts with the European Union for his “institute for global change” as he publicly campaigned to overturn Brexit

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/12/28/tony-blair-sought-eu-funding-trying-stop-brexit/

Of course he was. Are we surprised? Article behind the paywall, but link is there for those who have a subscription.

Why should being first be more fair than the playoffs.

Now what part of the college field hockey has TM upset? Green Bay failing to suck... blame Detroit for that. New England reverting to 70s form... that I’ll drink to.

Jane

Good game with bad result! Bummer.

Jack is Back!

Dave,

How come the rest of the team walk over to Flores and embrace him?

Sort of an elitist move by Tom Terrific.

Jack is Back!

Montes Sweat! Prompting my song.

Hail...to a bunch of numb nuts!

Dave (in MA)

Did the rest of the team include members of the offense? I shut it off as soon as the game ended.

Agree. And the “savior” candidate they’ll plug in will be Hillary.

Taking the nomination with no work on her part would be such a Hillary thing to do.

I’ve seen twitter reports the security guard was ex FBI. He certainly wasted no time getting one headshot in. As the tweeters reminded, range time is a good thing.

Dave (in MA)

henry, the obvious reaction is stricter gun laws and expansion of Gun Free Zones.

Cuomo and deBlasio both

In these church shooting situations, I’d really prefer the good guy not be LE or ex-LE. It lets the gun grabbers duck the argument over armed civilians.

henry

Might as well add the squad to that, Clarice.

And now for something completely different.

Even Kim Kardashian thinks this is too far.

Dave (in MA)

Sad that "these church shooting situations" is even a thing.

henry

Another Bob, I agree. From the vid, the ex FBI guy reacted first. Another dozen of the congregation were a beat behind him.

Dave (in MA)

AB, I'd recognize those pants anywhere.

Extraneus

Jews will still vote for them. It's been clear for years that the left is the real home of antisemitism, yet 68% of them went for Hillary over Trump. I'll never understand it.

Ext @ 5:57

I don’t get it either.

The Democrats are openly, vocally anti-Israel. They’re openly, vocally insulting to Jews and gleefully use every ugly antisemitic slur they can, while President Trump tirelessly supports Israel every way he can, and the Dems will STILL get the Jewish vote in a landslide.

Biden goes no where without armed body guards.

Wow—quite the start to @JoeBiden
’s second event in NH. A man from the back of the room calls Biden a “pervert” and accuses him of touching women and children, before a second man asks Biden where the money is he and his son “earned from Ukraine” from the other side of the room
======================================
Rob Kendall is a local conservative radio guy. Molly Nagle is the ABC reporter following the dems around New Hampshire.

Nagle is dumbfounded, but both of those comments to Biden were true.

A sick sign of the times but what are you going to do?

anonamom

Wasn't it John Lewis who lied about being spit on by Tea Party demonstrators? Not to mention lying about being called n*gg*r by them as well.

He may have shown enormous courage back in the day when he marched for civl rights, but the above shows who he became--
Another lying politician.

The Infamous Ignatz

Stage 4 is incurable and terminal in almost all cancers including pancreatic. Pancreatic cancer is not more virulent than other cancers per se, it is just usually the least symptomatic as it spreads so that by the time it is discovered it is usually quite advanced.

Jane

Lindsay and I just watched Dirty Dancing (she broke nothing). Patrick Swayze died of pancreatic cancer at age 26 - 10 years ago. I will miss him more than Lewis.

Freddy Kitchens fired.

Iggy, we have a volunteer group at our church that provides security. Most, but not all are military or law enforcement, some active, some retired.

Since I usher, we coordinate and train with them. Not only concerned about the whack job that might shoot up the place, but also robbery.

They still have a handful of days to make this be true.

From 2004:
A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a 'Siberian' climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.

“ and the Dems will STILL get the Jewish vote in a landslide.”

I’d bet Trump does better with Jews than anyone since at least Reagan. I saw somewhere a poll that gave Trump 89% approval with Orthodox Jews. Granted they’re only 10 or so percent of Jews, but the increase is notable.

Narciso

" Self-governance is a hard business and republics have a checkered record in the court of history: Often they flicker brightly only to dim quickly. To succeed where so many others have failed, the framers understood that our republic needs citizens who know how their government works-- and who are capable of, and interested in, participating in its administration.

We won't always agree about the right policies of the day. That's to be expected, even treasured. After all, the capacityto express, debate, and test all ideas is part of what makes a republic strong. But to have any chance we must be able to listen as well as speak, to learn as well asteach, and to tolerate as well as expect tolerance.

This republic belongs to us all-- and it is up to all of us to keep it"

-Neil Gorsuch

Pancreatic cancer is not more virulent than other cancers per se, it is just usually the least symptomatic as it spreads so that by the time it is discovered it is usually quite advanced.

It definitely is like ovarian cancer in that is frequently diagnosed late, so at Stage Three or Four, but arguably, it could be regarded as more 'virulent,' in that it is the least responsive tissue type to radiation and/or chemo of any solid tumor. It has the lowest five year survival of any cancer--less than 8%. There is good reason we all know of people who were dead within weeks of diagnosis with it.
Henry's brother's immune therapy may be a game changer though.

From that video of the Texas church shooting, it looks like at least six men were armed.

I also saw evidence of "toxic masculinity" ;-) on watching it a few times--I noticed that a number of the fellows in the pews at some distance from the shooting did NOT hit the ground, as all the women did, but sat up and watched what was going down...one guy shoving his wife to floor as he did so.
