Happy New Year, TM, thanks for hosting this great site!

We are hanging on by the slimest of threads. We let the bullldogs back in the game and in charge. Need to step it up on the D.


Go Auburn!


Happy New Year, TM!



You need to find a new HVAC guy.

Happy New Year to all, and Best Wishes for a better 2021!

And a great thanks to our host, Tom Maguire, for providing this forum which many of us have enjoyed, vented, opined, and found fellowship and camaraderie in over the years ... even if sporadically for some of us.

McConnell Calls $2,000 Stimulus Checks 'Socialism for the Rich'
“Imagine a family of five where the parents earn $250,000 per year and have not seen any income loss this past year. Speaker Pelosi and Senator Sanders want to send them $5,000 from Uncle Sam,” McConnell said.

And that Rose Bowl logo in Arlington is just all sorts of wrong.


I am perfectly fine with you believing Patrick Byrne snuck in to a meeting with Trump uninvited.

I am perfectly fine calling you a lying dipshit.

A) you are inaccurate in your portrayal of what I wrote.

B) you are clueless as to what Byrne actually said.

Yeah, disappointed but mostly with the coaching not being agressive on offense when they had time to do it and then adjust at half time for the oncoming GA onslaught.


RIP Joe Clark.


In case you've forgotten, he was the tough NJ high school principal who roamed the halls with a baseball bat to help bring back discipline. The movie "Lean on Me" told his story.

Biden transition team disables Zoom chat for journalists:

Reporters, editors complained that they were not able to ask questions in the video conferences


Looks like you are getting decorum restored to the Whitehouse, TM.

Happy New Year!


So, we have had a series of cryptic photo and video clues from Dan Scavino.

Now Secretary of State Pompeo has joined the movement:


Why is @SecPompeo
firing a phalanx of #swagger tweets?
Here is Pompeo's OFFICIAL page on Twitter:


You will note that the photos include a lot of cabinet and military officials with the #swagger hash tag. I recommend also reading his speech from last May at the Claremont Institute. https://www.state.gov/a-foreign-policy-from-the-founding/

I need to stop by JIB’s for dinner.
Those selections are fantastic!
I should check and see what Lyle is having for dinner also.
I could swing by Jane’s and have dinner on the lanai.
I am 20 minutes from the airport and can be down in Punta Gorda, nearby Jane in 2 hours.

TK. How quickly the journalists forgot about the VP Biden campaign that locked a journo in the cupboard.


Holy cow ! You not going to visit again, Maryrose? How long are you here for?/


I wonder how long the press will just bend over and take it.

It is a variant of Niemöller.

First they came for the blog commenters, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a blog commenter.

Then they came for the blog hosts, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a blog host.

Then they came for the “silent majority,” and I did not speak out—
Because I was not in the “silent majority.”

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Sorry Jane,
I was just kidding around.
I am afraid we will not be coming down this year because of the virus.
I wish we could.

When does DeWine start paying for commercials about all the businesses destroyed by his lockdowns instead frowny faced actresses in nurses gear spewing propaganda?


LOL, Davod. True sheep.


Donald J. Trump
Our Republican Senate just missed the opportunity to get rid of Section 230, which gives unlimited power to Big Tech companies. Pathetic!!! Now they want to give people ravaged by the China Virus $600, rather than the $2000 which they so desperately need. Not fair, or smart!

Come on down to the First Coast. Fly in to JAX or Daytona. We are equidistant on the beach. SBW, catsmeat, and narciso have been here.

Our church has a retired Navy Chaplin, a Commander, who gave commuion to Marines in the hoochies of VN during a firefight. Hell of a golfer:)


Ugh, hubs was with his father about an hour, and his sister discovered via some web portal (she has health proxy) that fil in fact tested positive late last night. There were two tests, rapid and some other. So hubs got out of dodge, and sister is there. No one from the hospital has called, very strange. Maybe due to the holiday? He seems to be doing okay. He’s up and eating soup. I am making soup and urging hubs to push for calling the hospital for some answers and advice, and possibly more meds. The sister who spent the night now has to quarantine and canceled the Christmas gathering we had planned for tomorrow. Everyone is a bit nervous, and his sister was quite upset for having exposed everyone. Not her fault at all. Happy freakin’ new year! (Hubs told sisters, “I was never here.” ) I ordered querciten for him, and we have the zinc, D, and C here. Likely I have had it if it’s so contagious, and so then has he.

I hope to see the great Governor of South Dakota @KristiNoem, run against RINO @SenJohnThune, in the upcoming 2022 Primary. She would do a fantastic job in the U.S. Senate, but if not Kristi, others are already lining up. South Dakota wants strong leadership, NOW!

'Bama making a joke out of the ND defense. 1 vs. 4 really?

I thought this was apocryphal as the full moon popped out from the clouds for a few minutes a couple evenings ago.

Personally, I think ND has been over-rated this year.

I don’t have any animosity against them, just basing this on their play against Clemson and Bama this year.

Jim Eagle


But it's 2021. Where is that flag?



Interesting pictures and claims.

He follows it up by saying they also grabbed some of the fake ballots.


In the first link one of his claims is that he has a video of the shredding but it is too large to post on Twitter, but “trust him” he has that video.

Huh? The tech big-brain can’t get his video online? It is stuff like that that stinks up the entire claim.


The pandemic has been tough. And yet, we have much to be grateful for.

"The best year in human history to face a pandemic... #2020!” says @JohanKNorberg, noting that just 15 years ago, the current #Covid19 vaccines wouldn't have been possible, and much more: #2020inReview pic.twitter.com/geIeKoDuVL

I wonder how long the press will just bend over and take it.

An interesting question. The press was pretty much thank-you-sir-may-I-have-another? for eight years under Obama; but they worshiped at Obama's feet, whereas I'm pretty certain they hold Biden in contempt. Will political expediency be enough to keep them in line? Will they go after Biden as soon as he's (presumably) inaugurated, in the hopes of getting a Harris presidency? I like to think that if Biden precipitously resigns, the fact that it was a setup all along to get Harris into office will debilitate her presidency, despite the best efforts of the press.



I still have mt Trump flag up - and my Trump sign. May replace it with my Gadson flag. I’m not sure the American flag is deserved.


sorry about my typing. For some reason, my good eye is rebelling.


I'd like to see the GA election results come in as 85% Republican and 15% Democrat and make the Dems screech fraud.

MM - keep the Jan. 6 info coming! I'm looking forward to it (and hoping to come out unscathed).





Here is the covid stuff your FIL needs:

Breathing exercises


He also deserves treatment.
Either HCQ w zinc and zpack.
Here's the RCT showing it reduces hosptialization by 84%


Or ivermectin, per the Eastern Virginia Med School protocol


and jane, ccgirl, and your husband--you all are already taking zinc and vit D right?
Quercetin too? The EVMS protocol calls fro 500 mg a day.

I'd add 2000 mg of vit C as well. Twice a day if your GI track tolerates it. Hydrate too.

ccgirl--your husband should gargle with the highest proof alcohol you have in the house.

And --I read a post of a model of a single 1000mg dose of niacin taking out the virus in 1.4 days.
That's a very benign vitamin too, other than the flush.

Kathryn Anne

You have been invaluable in helping all of us combat this virus.
Thank you.
Hang in there ccgirl.
We are praying for him and your family.
Need an update from others on medical conditions.


Thanks Anonomom. I just ordered quercetin and we have the supplements. Sis in law is calling the doc as fil is coughing more. I will send this screen shot to her and my other sil.

Kathryn Anne

I don’t understand why those Georgia results cannot be completed on Election night.
Anything else is fishy.

Kathryn Anne

In Rocky River, all restaurants are open except for Joe’s which is pick-up but dining habits have not changed a bit.
We patronize the local family businesses, tonight was Chinese and their parking lots are full.
Business as usual here, my only concession, wearing a mask as I enter a store.
I went out to my car after 10:00pm the other night and there were people still driving down our busy Wooster Rd.
I think people are doing what they want to do.
Cheesecake Factory is open for indoor dining.

Kathryn Anne

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights , most of Rocky River is eating out.


Jane. Incomplete paraplegic in the 70s. Got worse until I was in a w/chair in 2000.



800 mg of Quercitin any 22 mg of zinc. I’m not sure I take vitamin c.

My8 neighbor came over and fixed my AC, so kiwi will be fine (and I will freeze). Perfect!

My love and thanks to all Jomers in this new year!


I’m no doctor but I feel like Gollum was more stridorous than Aragorn of Arathorn


Anything else is fishy.

Bet it is fishy.

Kemp and Raffensperger are seriously compromised.


When Guiliani posted that they were quislings last night, that was enough for me.

And Thune has cooked his goose up in South Dakota. Trump wants him primaried this spring.


Last night we started season 3 of The Crown. It starts with the the new Prime Minister Wilson’s election, and Churchill dying. Churchill thought Wilson was a soviet mole. (I don’t know if some of it was fictional, and I watch the show for entertainment). It was a bit surreal to watch, as it mirrors how we feel these days.

Captain Hate

I'm glad Rocky River's businesses are open. I think Lake county is ignoring DeWine.


No one will explain this on TV news, I will bet:


Donald J. Trump
Before even discussing the massive corruption which took place in the 2020 Election, which gives us far more votes than is necessary to win all of the Swing States (only need three), it must be noted that the State Legislatures were not in any way responsible for the massive....

....changes made to the voting process, rules and regulations, many made hastily before the election, and therefore the whole State Election is not legal or Constitutional. Additionally, the Georgia Consent Decree is Unconstitutional & the State 2020 Presidential Election....

....is therefore both illegal and invalid, and that would include the two current Senatorial Elections. In Wisconsin, Voters not asking for applications invalidates the Election. All of this without even discussing the millions of fraudulent votes that were cast or altered!

Captain Hate

That list of Senate traitors on the pork laden defense bill should be enough to discourage any conservatives from voting in the Georgia runoff.


There was a good man gaitskell who died suddenly and wilson was the next up, he had been to the ussr as trade minister ans had many left wing affiliations.


Prayers for him ccgirl.

Salazar the new congresswoman was diagnosed with the bug.


The details of the resistance against wilson were described by mi 5s peter wright whose memoir was subject to the official secrets act.


British Muslims rang in the New Year by throwing knives in the air.

James D.

CH, I see neither of the GOP Senators in GA bothered to vote. They can both go to hell.



more on HCQ's effectiveness



Narc, the show has it as that, but the mole was the queen’s art director. Wilson was a lefty but not compromised. Apparently the mole got to keep his job and the queen was to keep quiet as exposing him would show the US that MI6 was useless. And GB needed a big bailout from Johnson. I suppose it’s a period of history that I need to read about. I know more colonial thru the CW.

Alec Baldwin should play Alec Baldwin when SNL parodies his wife pretending she’s Spanish for the last few decades as opposed to the basic white girl from Mass that she actually is.

It would be the first funny thing Saturday Night Live has produced in years.



How did you do it?


Anonamom, you are amazing! I really appreciate all your advice. I have numerous screen shots of your advice saved over these past months. I never bothered with prevention because I am positive I had it back in March. I hear now one can catch it again, but possibly not so bad the second time around? All I can say is my SIL (my side) was exposed as her father caught it back in March. She worked closely with me before she knew. She took time off to care for him, and I had a cough when exerting myself. At the time hubs wasn’t working, and I kept my mouth shut and kept working. So who knows? None of us have missed work all these months, yet many customers have had it. I can’t figure it out.

This is unacceptable with only 4 days to Election Day.

Corned beef, potato torte, cabbage and soda bread was our fare today.

A traditional lucky Irish dinner on the 1st to ensure a prosperous new year.

We do it every year.

Interestingly, my oldest daughter up in Chicago emulated the tradition substituting soda farls for the soda bread. Said she wanted to start her own tradition which I found touching.

I kicked it up a notch to avoid another repeat of 2020 though by adding extra bacon to the potato torte.

My faith in bacon is boundless.
