If they care, I know I don't.

Dammit. I was having so much fun on the old thread!

Well, we know where President Trump stands! This clip is well worth watching, and he sure put the Chinese gal in her place! Video at the link.

Never fear, lyle. Let's willow.

My goal in life is to be the opposite of a Karen.

MissMarple2

I hope somebody makes a "Best Of" series of clips from this press conference! My other favorite is the President telling the Surgeon General "Don't worry. That was a wiseguy question!"

Ralph L

Shave brewing? Is that anything like Burma Shave?

jimmyk

porch, you are already definitely not a Karen.

When I see that pic I keep thinking Jamie Lee Curtis, but she's about 100 years old now.

The Infamous Ignatz

Who was the CCP mouthpiece claiming has great gifts?

henry

Trump said he never heard of Bright.

GUS

It's not called Burma anymore. They all came here to take jobs that we wouldn't do. Burma is now Myanmar. It's far more exotic.

jimmyk

Oops, check that. Jamie Lee is only about a year and half older than me. But she looks a lot older.

henry

Ralph L, perhaps really strong coffee eliminates the need for a razor , just splash some on your stubble.

GUS

Yes Jimmyk, but they're real, and they're SPECTACULAR. Or so I've heard.

Remarkably it is the same guy that this thread is about.

GUS

Bright thought he was in charge. What would Obama do if someone disobeyed him? And I don't mean Reggie Love.

MissMarple2

Ignatz,

It was some Dr. Bright who got transferred within the NIH and claimed it was because he opposed that malaria drug. There was a story about him in Politico. He had been causing problems for over a year, so it wwas an obvious set-up.

That Chinese gal needs to be reassigned, although obviously President Trump isn't intimidated. That was one of the greatest press briefing moments ever!

GUS

Bright is the next deep state IDIOT that the FULL COMMIE PARTY will chew up and spit out.

jimmyk

Remarkably it is the same guy that this thread is about.

Wait, this thread is about something? That would be a first.

There was a story about him in Politico

Is this proof that TM’s topics, on his new threads, don’t get read? :-)

They look pretty real, GUS.

Porchlight

Thanks jimmyk. She reminds me of JLC too.

GUS

Hey Porch, I'm behaving myself, hope you noticed.

If memory, not mammary serves, Jamie Lee, had some work done on her memories...heh heh.......actually, I just BINGED......BINGED not....well you know, her.

They are NOT REAL.

Manuel Transmission

Crap, I knew this would happen...

Re Iggy's earlier post where he was graphing different personality types and roles played, I've often wondered whether anyone around here with your highfalutin reading skilz, ever read a woo woo psych book close to 30 yrs ago called The Celestine Prophecy? I don't remember anything about it other than a clever effort to pigeon hole people into various personality types. Of all those that were conjured in their nominal paring, I only remember two pairs: 1) Intimidator/Poor Me, and 2) Interrogator/Aloof.

The idea was that parent/child traits developed among the various pairs. When we first read the book, we immediately spotted people that fit the patterns. In the case of the Intimidator/Poor Me, it was shown that generationally, the child would eventually take over the father's role and repeat the cycle, not in a good way.

OK, so why bring it up here? Way back when I was first hanging out around here, I remember the perpetual pissing matches between TK and DoT and I immediately saw a real mismatch in that DoT was a classic Intimidator, but TK was an Interrogator which don't pair up worth a shit, so we had perpetual haranguing. If only TK had groveled in front of DoT, all would be well. Heh. Now, we have a different combination, which I don't fully understand, because I deliberately avoid the TK-Tom/whomever pissing matches, but I suspect Tom is also an Interrogator which is another total mismatch, which therefore cannot ever be resolved in a nominal stable way.

Australian Expert Warns US Is On The Brink Of "Mass Civil Unrest"

“There is that part of the US political psyche that takes rights to a complete extreme,” said Brown, adding that “mass civil unrest” is an ever present possibility due to Americans sharing a “deep independent streak that believes the government is a nice-to-have not a must-have.”
Brown said that so long as most people believed that states were making progress on battling coronavirus, they would accept and adhere to lockdown laws for the time being.

“But people will chafe, that idea of individual freedom and liberty is much stronger in the U.S. than it is Australia,” he added.

The host of the show opined that if “anarchy” were to break out across the United States, “the government can’t bring the people to heel” due to the Second Amendment.

Perfect name for the strange obese man. MICHAEL MOAR. Big Mike MOAR, has lifelong issues. ISSUES. He is like several misfit FULL COMMIES, we've all known. He wants to win, regardless of how he makes it happen. There is a serious need for validation that can NEVER be satisfied.

I do not see groveling in TK's make up. DoT was an interesting and tough man. OLD SCHOOL fo-shiz.
It's been a long long time since he left JOM, and I'm pleased to here that some others still keep in touch and report that he is doing WELL.

How long has it been??? Last year we lost several beloved regulars in a short span.

bubarooni,

I buy it once in a while to spread on toast for breakfast. I have liked it since I was a kid. I never liked jelly and wasn't fond of peanut butter.

But Cheez Whiz on toast with orange juice made a swell breakfast!

So TuCa has on the latest hawt MD, Dr. Saphier, who’s talking about the next wave of the you-know-what come fall and, of course, she has a book for sale.

Since I’m as much of an expert epidemiologist as the next internet rando, I’m making a prediction: it doesn’t happen. I’m convinced this virus has been in this country for MONTHS ahead of this past January and there’s already big time herd immunity. We’ll be getting more data on human waste analysis showing the virus has been around longer than The Fouch can admit.

Also, I hate the MFM with the heat of ten million supernovas. AlGore’s utterly discredited film is showing on TCM.

Manuel Transmission

TK, as I mentioned, I generally avoid any of the interactions with Tom along with all the others, once I read far enough to see their responses back to Tom. That’s prolly my switching into Aloof mode to avoid the harangue.

Narciso,

I never have gotten over that. It was cruel, and it was done in a cowardly manner in order to make Clinton able to suck up to the Cuban Commies.

Cheez Whiz jar is empty. :)

Think I'm gonna open a new jar of peanut butter. Scoop out half a cup and mix in as much honey as I want, and then pour on a half cup of M&Ms.

Then might watch a lesbian film on Netflix.

Nah, just kidding. :) About the film. I'm gonna finish Bosch. I binge watched Unbelievable on Netflix last night. Too much chitchat between female police detectives, but it was based on a true story. I couldn't believe the cruelty the police showed one young victim.

Time for a pause that refreshes -- man, I'm old. Bet that ad was in the Sixties. From Cheez Whiz to Coca Cola. Good times. :)

Extraneous, you ought to see some of the birds that I post on facebook from the state ornithological society. The Scissortails are wonderful. Also, the Blue Buntings. Nothing wrong with robins.

My SigOther is binge watching 'The Americans'.

Last night when she completed season 3 with a certain amount 'I've done it!'.

I googled it and there 6 seasons.

I mentioned that with a certain merriment and she responded "Oh, shit..."

I sit on the couch with her as a measure of solidarity and it is better than "Dr Pimple Popper" or 'Flip or Flop'.

Without casting any aspirations, would you correlate an Interrogator with someone having an abundance of ?? In their posts? Heh. When I do, it’s usually rhetorical and is followed by an answer.

I did some GoogleFu to try and figure out what you were talking about. I guess limited to those four options Interrogator sounds right. Are you saying people of the same control drama category tend to have conflicts with one another?

joan

bubarooni, I lol'd at your 9:43. I use to watch The Americans, when it was on broadcast tv. My English friend, Margo, (war bride) loved that show. Margo was nearly 90 when it started. That's how I got started watching, because she wanted me to. She lived in OKC, about three hours away from me. We'd talk on email about the show. She really was into it.

Her husband was one of the paratroopers who jumped into Normandy on D-Day. He fought all across into Germany (I remember he fought the Germans anyway). He was put in charge of some Russian troops, females, who would go out and kill cattle and butcher them, bring them back to roast in campfires -- he said it was quite an experience.

Margo and Dan met later, after the war when he was given a post in England, as a reward for the outstanding work he did in France and Germany. He was an attorney I worked for in the 90s. I posted an article about them on jom several years ago, think the day of Trump's election. I was so nervous, I started doing crazy things to keep my mind off the election.

Anyway, Margo and Dan were unique and lovely and brave people. She lived in Manchester (think that was the city) that was firebombed into an inferno.

I read awhile back that some liberal wrote an article about the English, and said they were an 'okay' people but with an obsessive or neurotic (or some other liberal slimy phrase) preoccupation with WWII.

I hate liberals.

The Trump administration ordered Chevron to halt oil production in Venezuela, dealing another blow to the American oil giant's century-long relationship with the crisis-ravaged OPEC nation.

The directive, which was issued Tuesday evening, requires Chevron to "wind down" its operation in Venezuela by December 1.

The last remaining American oil producer in Venezuela, Chevron had previously been granted licenses by the Treasury Department to keep production activities alive with the national oil company PDVSA, which has been sanctioned by President Donald Trump.

The order will have a limited impact on Chevron's finances, but it deals a setback to a company that has spent decades sinking resources into Venezuela. And it will only accelerate the historic collapse of Venezuela's oil industry.

Catsmeat

TK, I thought your "Kibosh" idea was great. That said, we've decided on Jack and Pepper. So much for all the high-minded suggestions, including my own. I particularly liked all the Wodehouse ideas, and also Pin's "Coleridge." I love Coleridge, brilliant and tormented and deeply Christian soul (ultimately) that he was. Poor baby.

Ig, I admire you and your attitude about life very much--you can quote me--though who would care about a quote from a "Catsmeat"?

I did the gutters today (some very high and vertiginous, but I take my time and it's ok) and sorted all the paint cans, and the day before that I did the taxes, so you can see I'm down to the punitive chores of this "stay-cation."

Tom, it’s more like two poles of two magnets. Two N’s aren’t complementary. They are ‘incompatible’. The ‘normal’ pairing of the personality types have a symbiotic relationship even when it isn’t necessarily mutually beneficial. But the two N’s just can’t interact in any productive way. So, for the bystanders, it’s all fingernails on the blackboard.

From Althouse:

Alex

I was amused by the fact that they wanted Trump fire the Surgeon General for his 180 on masks and not asking for the heads of Redfield, Fauci and Brix who have made much worse mistakes especially Redfield at CDC who screwed up testing and containment.

Also if you could not do containment at end of flu season and had to go through this mitigation shutdown how confident you can do containment in the fall. At this point anything coming out of Fauxci and Redfield's mouth is total b.s.
