How did that not happen?

I think narc had it right. Remember, the election was seven weeks after 9/11, and the city was in no mood for a big change, much less the mushy Kennedyesque leftism of Bloomberg's opponent. Also, I don't think his nannyish tendencies were so obvious at that point.

The more remarkable thing is that he got reelected to a second and third term. It shows the power of incumbency when people are generally satisfied.

Democrat impeachment managers attempted to make their case over three long days. Today, @realDonaldTrump's legal team destroyed that case in two hours. You can't impeach a president on lies, half-truths and hearsay!

Face masks are sold out in lots of places, like CVS in Los Angeles. I am listening to a You Tube with people who have contacts in China.

Here is the You Tube link for anyone interested:

Re face masks getting sold out. How small a particle passes the ones that were bought? Specs matter on masks. One good for using a belt sander won’t help with a virus.

Dean has spent over 40 years presenting himself as some super-duper investigative reporter, when all he was doing was taking notes from a leaker with a grudge.

Dean is a hack and a disbarred felon. Just another cable legal "expert" who doesn't understand the Constitution.

henry,

Bingo. This will end up causing MORE spreading.

CH, those who say NYC was ruined by Guiliani's Disney-fication also say Bloomberg put the final gentrification stake through the city's heart.

People have really short memories about what a lawless dump NYC was under David Dinkins with squeegee pests bothering everyone and assaults out the wazz. Believe me, if not for Rudy I'd have never gotten a good night sleep when my daughters were going to school. As it was under Rudy I felt safe on the subway at any hour of night.

People have really short memories about what a lawless dump NYC was under David Dinkins with squeegee pests bothering everyone and assaults out the wazz.

For about 18 months during the early 90s I was getting a good dose of that making a connection between Penn and Grand Central twice a week.

Any wonder I didn't get excited about going to the city in the evening?

Probably once a month, and that was too much:)

Within this article you will find glimpses of pro-life people who did NOT vote for Trump but now trust him. I think this indicates an increase in his vote totals.

--Re face masks getting sold out. How small a particle passes the ones that were bought? Specs matter on masks. One good for using a belt sander won’t help with a virus.--

Not only that but they're hardly air tight. I used to occasionally wear one while logging and they didn't do much for dust, so imagine how little they'll do for viruses.

The number of people killed driving to the store to buy a mask will probably exceed the number who die of this virus by many, many fold.

Schiff is an actor and a failed screenwriter.
He is now officially off the hook because he knows he is losing.
He is dangerous and demented.

Threadkiller

Did anyone see Lindsay Graham yesterday at the presser break during the impeachment? He was outraged that the House managers kept saying that Biden/Burisma was fully investigated. He said that it was never investigated and that he hopes a Special Counsel looks into it. He got misty eyed and explained that he hopes he doesn’t have to do the investigation because “he loves Joe Biden” and doesn’t want to be the one that has to perfect justice on a friend.

Ultimate he said that he will get Joe if no one else steps up to the plate.

When Vice-President Mike Pence is presiding over the US Senate, he gets to vote in the case of ties. He has done so on a handful of occasions.

Now, Chief Justice John Roberts is presiding over the US Senate. Does he get to vote in the case of ties?

No cheating, show your work (cite to legal authority if available).

Now that Eli's retired will he be in the HOF *and* should he be? I think the answers are yes, because he won two Super Bowls, and no, because no team ever said "OMG we're facing Peyton's kid brother".

I welcome additional opinions.

Narciso

I dont see why not, he meets all the criteria,

James D.

I agree with both of your answers, CH.

I actually can occasionally be objective with regard to my NY sports teams.

henry

As in I learned at Remington School to mount my shotgun with fingers aligned to the forearm grip and point at the target. (Along with wood on wood it improves wing shooting). With handguns, when I take the time to adjust the grip so the gun is aligned with my forearm, accuracy improves. Some Guns require more adjustment than others. I haven’t figured out how to “fit” a gun to my natural grip yet. Thus I am not as accurate in a draw.

Perhaps I should get a gun that fits... (duh). But wonder about adjustments.

henry

CH, it strikes me that Halls of Fame have turned into participation trophies (after socially acceptable lags). Thus yea Eli will get in. And no, he doesn’t deserve it.

Prayers to all who ask & I hope that everyone in need is doing much better
Press conference post trial on C-Span showed Schumer insisting more witnesses are needed. He’s such a chronic sleazy liar.
Sen Duckworth stated something to the effect that people who get their news from FOX would need to hear from witnesses. I’m not an idiot, I’m not a lawyer & although I have stayed at a Holiday Inn I’m insulted & offended by her remarks
Ducky, like many I’m also not as dumb as members of your corrupt Dem party which has been out to get a Trump since his announcement to run
The defense isn’t over. I pray the defense fights fire with fire & I hope the guilty pay dearly for their despicable crimes.

If you are interested in seeing woke, SJW, commie, maggot perverts devouring each other;
What's the Harm in Reading?

On the first day of the new year, the New Jersey-based monthly speculative fiction magazine Clarkesworld published its 160th issue, which contained a story titled “I Sexually Identify as an Attack Helicopter” by then-unknown writer Isabel Fall. The story, which follows a helicopter pilot fused by brainwashing and gender reassignment surgery to her combat aircraft, deals with themes of gender identity, the militarization of the body, and personal identity in a world collapsing under the weight of imperialism and climate change. Initial responses from readers were positive, but on January 11, things took a hostile turn.

Story apparently written by some tranny who was not sufficiently woke. The mob compelled her to repudiate her own story. I guess if four legs good, two legs bad, nowadays one could have limb reassignment surgery and identify as a pig. Maybe by 2084.

Eli Manning was good but not HOF great in my opinion.
If the Democrats want it ,I am against it.
They don’t care about us, all they want is power.
It is our job to keep them from attaining that power.
We dropped the ball wrt the House in 2018 and all of OL’s predictions came true.
We must not permit this to happen in 2020.
Saw an estimate we need 18 seats.
Definitely possible to achieve.
If your congressperson is a Dem you should try to get out and campaign against him.
Join the Repub club and start electing candidates in your state that will truly represent you.

Sorry, MR, if Joe Namath who won only one Super Bowl is hall worthy, why not Eli and please don't give me the "he predicted it and was from an inferior league bullshit". Football at that level is competitive and position to position specific.

I am no Manning fan but he won more SB's than his more highly rated brother which tells me more about the team around him than the one around Peyton.

So, trivia freaks, who out there has one at least one SB as a QB but is not in the HOF?

Jack is Back!

Oh, mice eating? Nothing like in Indonesia when they pull the money up, shave its skull and eat his brains. Think I am kidding? Well, I am not.

She won’t self-immolate. She needs to be called out, and called out hard. Letting stupid, unreasonable and ignorant people go unchallenged is how we got where we are today. If loudmouthed foolish idiots had been told loudly and harshly to shut up when they were occupying college buildings in the late 60’s, and at the start of other toxic cultural movements, we’d be a lot better off today.

I've been out of the loop here mostly, as my wife is traveling in China and I'm "single dad" for a couple of weeks.

She asks "does the MSM report corona virus is 'out of control' in China?"
I'm not sure since I don't have cable and don't watch the MSM. While I browse the web ... does anyone have feedback on that?

I see that the US will send a charter jet to pick up diplomats and some citizens in Wuhan. I see that WHO has not declared a Global Emergency (yet). Would they declare a "China Emergency"? Or is that up to the Chinese authorities? I see that many news outlets have found citizens who are quoted as saying "it is out of control!" ... but I'm trying to see if networks themselves are declaring the situation 'out of control' ...
