DeVonta for the win!! 🐘

It was a republic while it lasted.

Manuel Transmission

Pfft! Willowed.


Jane, we partied in DC on 9/12/09. People don’t realize that the TEA Party was formed right after 0dumbo was inaugurated. Mel’s pal kicked it off IIRC with an on air rant on CNBC.

Crap weather out here today. Blowing like stink all day. Highest speed so far 60.5 kts! (70 mph) So leaning up against hurricane speeds. Had to go inside the bank to make a deposit because they couldn’t use the the little pop out drawer.

Re the programming on OAN and Newsmax, they obviously are still suffering from growing pains. I have several shows on auto record and over the holidays they were all over the map show/no show. Howie was in the mess and may have just taken a break.

Narciso

Willowed yes one is supposed to pray as a conversation, even the our father is more a list of priorities acknowledging gods nature. His authority over the earth, our tequirements spiritual and material, and our obligations

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Trump shoulda done that Sherman-through-Atlanta thing before the voting started.

Porchlight

Perdue and Loeffler suck. Didn't fight for Trump. Trump voters understandably didn't want to be fooled twice. The fraud continues so there is no faith in the vote.

All baked into the cake. People will blame McConnell but it was all foretold before last week.

So the peaceful part is done... TV has their video. Now what?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

A perfect microcosm of the government.
Have to log onto a CA DOJ site to renew a certain state firearms license. Use it about once a year so forgot the password. Click the 'forgot password' link. Sends me an email that has the link but it isn't hot. Must be common as they say C&P it if it isn't hot. I C&P it. Brings up a hundred different sites, none of which are the one I need to get to. I finally remember my password go back and try it and it says it has expired. As I'm looking to try a different browser I find my hotmail account opened in a stand alone window. By a miracle the links are hot in it. I click one. Takes me back to the sign in screen and tells me my link is invalid or expired. I try twice more, same result. Never tells me I'm locked out of the account.
So what should have taken one minute at any other website turns into an hour long fiasco with numerous curse words and still no resolution of it. Almost certainly I will have to call the dumbshits to get it fixed tomorrow, and all to do what the puniest, most primitive websites do every day a thousand times.

Please sir, may we have some more effing government!?!

Narciso

Its heisenbergs cat and you we're the cat

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Perdue and Loeffler suck. --

True, but absent Atlanta turning into Chicago South they would still easily win.
There is no reason GA should be any more purple than any other southern state than a big dirty political tank gutting it.

You can't possibly win when more people turn out than voted in the General Election, especially by mail.

Oh, and that's supposedly illegal.

Captain Hate

For four years, this country had an economic boom, historic low unemployment rates, rock-bottom gas prices, a soaring stock market and no goddamned foreign wars. And that was with a corrupt press and a treasonous Democrat party that screamed "RUSSIA!" 24/7. And what did the GOP do with that record? Did it go out and support the President? Did it smash the lying Dems into the ground? Did it push through massive legislation making the lives of the working class better?

No. It undermined Trump, smeared his supporters and, ultimately, looked the other way as a fucking Presidential election was stolen in broad daylight.

It sure as hell IS the GOP, nickelfucker.

Ig, it’s not just govt. This morning I woke up (after having a pleasant/disturbing dream in which I was waiting on my US Rep - I have not seen him or his wife in some months - and I gave him my opinion after asking him two questions) and my phone binged. Text from my brother that Ben Mooore would not be delivering our order as we were not in the proper “billing category.” WTF? I check my emails, and the BM rep has sent the info to take care of this problem. The powers that be at BM never told the sales reps this was happening, and so several merchants in my area did not get their expected paint orders. A few months back BM announced that they would not send their bills through True Value anymore. Okay - fine, we knew that. No info about new paperwork, etc. Turns out we had to fill out paperwork and send a new tax exempt resale cert to BM. This store has been buying since prior to 1972. Stupid is as stupid does. Took me my first hour in my pjs to fix it. Jerks.

I’m avoiding the “news.” It always goes the wrong way.

hrtshpdbox

A betting site analyzes the Georgia race, looking at the votes now compared with November. They see rural counties going 2 or 3 points less Republican than in November. Better coverage than bid media, if you ask me.

CH, I have noticed since the Trump tax cut that people have been receiving letters from the IRS informing them that their withholding amounts are too low, and they need to fill out a new W-4. The company that runs my payroll program sends out emails every so often advising how to deal with this letter. In the past year my SIL received a letter (husband is self employed) and just last week my business partner brother did (his wife was self employed and does not work now). It’s not a conspiracy, but I wonder how many people were confused about the tax cuts, and still received this letter. To date I haven’t figured out exactly what the new W-4 does. It just asks the same kids of questions as the old one. I just tell them I will bump up the w/h a bit.

But why? If most people’s tax obligations went down (at moderate incomes) then why these letters? Just to confuse people?

Captain Hate

I don't know, ccgirl. It never hurts to review your withholdings to make sure you don't get hit with a penalty (for which you have to be *really* under withheld) but coming now seems counterintuitive.

MissMarple2

Could they have smartened up? I suppose that's too much to hope for.

Not getting my hopes up but both R candidates have slight leads with 2/3 of the votes counted, acc. to this:

https://pjmedia.com/election/pjmedia-2/2021/01/05/live-georgia-election-runoff-results-n1308081

CCGirl

Maybe I am just off on a tangent. The younger generation imo doesn’t get taxes at all because they have never filled in the paper forms. Now they answer questions, and voila here is the amount you owe. They don’t see the stupid political issues behind the asinine tax rules that one sees when reading the paper instructions.

My oldest still paid taxes, but she did not realize she was paying a lot less than she would have paid under the old tax law. She’s just out of school. She has no idea when I tell her how great it is that she is paying less! 🥲

There are a few polling places that were petitioned to stay open for 3 more hours. Chatham - heavily D - is one. That is Savannah.

Porchlight

There is no reason GA should be any more purple than any other southern state than a big dirty political tank gutting it.

True. This is mainly the little sister of the November steal which was abetted by the RINOs in charge.

In addition, Georgia like other red states is not immune to the hordes of blue state voters moving there. Which makes the gutting easier.

Wouldn't it be fun though if the races flipped to R overnight in a mirror image of the 11/3 nightmare?

Momto2

Too nervous to watch returns so wishing Robert Duvall a Happy 90th Birthday. My favorite movie of his would have to be "Secondhand Lions!" Would love to have several thousand of those types of guys descend on Washington, D.C. tomorrow.

MissMarple2

CCGirl,

MY daughter doesn't realize how much she is paying, either. I asked her how much her mortgage interest and property taxes were and she couldn't remember. The house is in her name so she should be deducting that, and she uses some on-line thing and doesn't remember.

ACK!

michaelt

Maybe he didn't have an option, I'm just surprised Romney flies commercial.

Momto2

I thought Fulton Co. announced they would not complete counting absentees until tomorrow...Certainly not a solid R and where much of the theft went on Nov 3rd!

CCGirl

Momto, I loved him in The Great Santini and Tender Mercies. Great actor!
Happy B day to RD!

Porchlight

Thanks for the heads up, Momto2! Happy birthday to Robert Duval. One of my favorites. And a conservative to boot.

He reportedly used to attend Westlake High School football games regularly, so he must live around here somewhere, or have a place.

As y'all probably know, Westlake is the only high school in the country to produce two Super Bowl winning QBs/MVPs who aren't brothers named Manning.

I think my favorite Duval performance is Tender Mercies. Secondhand Lions is fantastic, though. Also, The Great Santini, which is frequently overlooked.

CCGirl

MissM, under Trump’s tax law she’s taking a bigger standard deduction than she would take if she itemized - likely. That’s why it’s confusing to me. The taxes are simpler, but people seem more confused. And I wonder if that in some small way contributed to fewer people voting for Trump (not that I will ever say he lost, because we all know he and we were robbed).

Porchlight

GMTA, ccgirl! I just posted my comment without having read yours.

Davod

Mom2. Assassination Tango is an interesting movie.

CCGirl

Ha, Porch! Someday we meet and have fun!

narciso, I hadn't heard of your novella!

Porchlight

That is, I think you've mentioned it in the last day or so. But I didn't realize what you were referring to until just now.

Narciso

I was just about to mention that one davod.

How would get the smaller extract to you.about 40 pages

Porchlight

Yes, ccgirl. I am planning a NE trip soon. I grew up in CT and I've got a high school reunion coming up in 2022, plus lots of folks in the area I'd love to meet up with. We need to put together a JOM meetup soon.

Davod

Earlier, before the polls closed, I clicked on Fox, and they had the GOP candidates in the 20% and 30% suggested vote. Shocked, they hadn't already called the election for the Dems.

Porchlight

I think you have my email, narciso, or someone does.

Porchlight

Davod, I'm shocked, too.

MJW

Counties who haven’t submitted results are ALL REPUBLICAN

I think the biggest problem is the DaKalb county, which is huge, five-to-one Democrat, and has only reported about 37% of their vote. Many of the Republican counties have tiny populations.

Davod

Narciso. Was this aimed at Porchlight - How would get the smaller extract to you. about 40 pages

CCGirl

Let me know, Porch!

Narc, I reviewed posts. Rowan A. is not always my cup of tea, but he was funny in Four Weddings and a Funeral. I think it’s a good thing these actors are speaking up. We all feel stifled. Let those who have money to spare speak up first. The rest of us will follow, but we are too dependent on day to day income to make a big stink yet! (I hope that doesn’t sound counter-revolutionary. 😜

Duvall even livened up jack reacher as the ex marine shooting range owner.

Will we see an increase in Democrat seniors dying, now that they know their votes will still be counted after they are dead?

duvall's range as an actor is astonishing. I think I've loved everyone of his movies.

I thought the 2nd round of covid payments would give me $0, $600 or $1200, probably $0. I was surprised to find $675.75 added to my account today, though I'm unable to find an explanation as to the amount.

Trump Has Gone Nuts

"President Trump is right in saying that the 2020 election was rife with voter fraud. I think he is quite likely right, although no one knows for sure, in alleging that absent fraud he would have been re-elected. But his conduct has nevertheless become indefensible..."

The country is about to condone open in-your-face election and fraud, but Trump's conduct is indefensible. Maybe the lack of response and emotion from the majority of Republican politicians has something to do with Trump's conduct.

Hey Hinderaker, what is the appropriate response to the steal of a presidential election (and a whole bunch of downticket races with it) when no one will fight it but Trump and a handful of other elected GOPers?

Disgusting, cowardly response from a normally reasonable conservative.

I will personally work to defeat every single Republican Senator / Congressman who doesn’t stand up against this fraud - they will be primaried in their next election and they will lose.

CCGirl

LOL, my house is so much fun tonight. Hubs’ father is well on the road to recovery and so hubs came home. Kids in the house feared that having their father “quarantining” in the house would cause them to be ostracized from their friends, and so they headed for friend’s who can put them up for a week. Hubs is sleeping in his new office - out of the basement. Pull out sofa. It won’t open. I give him directions where to sit so he can hold the sofa firm while I pull out the mattress out. He’s a mess. Two day’s no sleep with his dad and worried to boot. Anyway the pull out won’t open all the way. I tell hubs that’s because you didn’t push the beautiful new desk I found you all the back to the wall. He says, “I did!” And I realize I am wrong. Then I check and see that the block of the extension cord is on the floor, and thereby blocking the desk full allowance to the wall. I remove the cord, and ha! Now the pull out sofa fits!

No kids, no husband! It’s my vacation! Thanks COVID! 😅

- JANUARY 5, 2020 -
Statement from President Donald J. Trump
“The New York Times report regarding comments Vice President Pence supposedly made to me today is fake news. He never said that. The Vice President and I are in total agreement that the Vice President has the power to act.
“The November 3rd election was corrupt in contested states, and in particular it was not in accordance with the Constitution in that they made large scale changes to election rules and regulations as dictated by local judges and politicians, not by state legislators. This means that it was illegal.
“Our Vice President has several options under the U.S. Constitution. He can decertify the results or send them back to the states for change and certification. He can also decertify the illegal and corrupt results and send them to the House of Representatives for the one vote for one state tabulation.”
