  1. It appears that Virginia's beloved governor Northam was just handed his arse on the AWB!🙂😢
  2. My liberal uncle has to, for the first time in his life, pay $1200 to the IRS this year and he blames Trump. I told him it was about time he paid his share. That should keep the annoying liberal from talking to me for a while. 😎
  3. Can we find a printer that will make new copies of the SOTU speech on TYVEK? Then send copies to Nancy? I'd gladly pay to have that done! Anybody else?
  4. "Advocates told 8News they made sure to clean up after the rally because they felt leaving trash behind “represents the group and the movement very poorly.” Locals in the city appreciated the gesture, even if it was unexpected. “They picked everything up and made it look nice,” said Richmond resident Jack Hamilton. “It was really good for them to do that and it looks a lot better and good job.”" https://www.wric.com/news/local-news/richmond/gun-rights-advocates-pick-up-trash-after-protesting-peacefully-in-richmond/
  5. "Here’s just another friendly reminder to build the wall. This is the latest example of bad guys with bad intentions entering America. Authorities have arrested 6 men in Wisconsin in connection with child grooming activities." https://www.dcclothesline.com/2020/01/18/6-illegals-busted-as-part-of-child-grooming-gang-in-wisconsin/
  6. "On Oct. 30, I reported that the Department of Justice had assigned an FBI Special Agent in Charge, or SAC, to review Rep. Ilhan Omar's apparent, astonishing spree of felonies from 2009 to 2017. 1. Department of Education Inspector General This is related to evidence suggesting that Rep. Omar's 2009 marriage to a UK citizen may have been an attempt to facilitate federal student loan fraud, or other fraud involving higher education. 2. Immigration and Customs Enforcement ● This is related to evidence suggesting a breathtaking number of possible immigration-related felonies. As I stated in an introductory passage within my July 18 article: Rep. Omar now appears to be receiving the scrutiny her "articulable facts" have deserved since August 2016; perhaps a criminal investigation is open.

  7. "The Trump administration has started returning Mexican migrants deep into the country’s interior as part of an expanding effort to deter illegal immigration and combat the ongoing crisis at the border. The Department of Homeland Security started running flights from Tucson, Ariz., to Guadalajara in December. Officials say the migrants being returned are all Mexican nationals from non-border Mexican states who typically have either recently illegally entered the U.S., or who had gone through the court system but were ruled to be deportable by an immigration judge. The plan marks a departure from past practice of releasing migrants at the border. The idea would be to make it harder for repeat offenders to try and cross the border again if they are returned hundreds of miles away. Officials say returning people closer to their hometowns is better for them as well, and allows them to receive services from the Mexican government." https://www.foxnews.com/politics/us-mexican-migrants-mexico-border-crisis
  8. "President Trump's tweet in Farsi expressing his support for Iranians protesting Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has already earned over 200,000 likes, making it the "most liked Persian tweet" in the social media giant's history, according to a leading think tank adviser. On Saturday, protesters in the country called upon Khamenei to step down after Iran admitted to shooting down a commercial airliner on which dozens of Iranian citizens were traveling. That evening, the president sent out a tweet in Farsi, saying that he stands with their efforts. “To the brave and suffering Iranian people: I have stood with you since the beginning of my presidency and my government will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely. Your courage is inspiring,” Trump wrote." https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/trump-tweet-in-farsi-the-most-liked-persian-tweet-in-history-of-twitter
  9. US Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Arizona https://www.foxnews.com/politics/paul-gosar-katie-hill-jeffrey-epstein Now this was a good one, but his best work was his string of tweets that, if you take the first letter of each tweet, you get: "Epstein didn't kill himself." Here are the first few: You can use these to link to his official twitter feed. They are in order so that if you start with the latest one and work your way down, you get "Epstein didn't kill himself." Which means he had to post them in reverse order. That takes a brilliant and somewhat twisted mind. I like him.
  10. American citizens (living in Mexico) were killed in an attack. https://www.foxnews.com/world/us-citizens-killed-kidnapped-in-cartel-shootout-outside-northern-mexican-mormon-community-family Now, it looks like MAGA just got mad about it: These types of things usually end more with a whimper than a bang, but hopefully this will be a wakeup call. This could be entertaining to watch.........
  11. NSFE because of the pics in the first link. Apparently Democratic Rep Katie Hill has been in a "Throuple" with her husband and a staffer. Beware of the pics in the article below: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7609835/Katie-Hill-seen-showing-Nazi-era-tattoo-smoking-BONG-NAKED.html Basically she's got the trifecta - weed, cheating, AND a Nazi tattoo. CNN has it too but much tamer: https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/23/politics/house-opens-investigation-into-katie-hill/index.html California, am I right?

  14. Good reason to be careful what you say in public even when you think no one is listening. "A Korean War veteran who has served in some capacity with local law enforcement for a span of six decades had his firearms confiscated and was relieved of his duties as an elementary school crossing guard last month, after a waitress overheard what she perceived to be a "threat" in a passing conversation at a coffee shop. Stephen Nichols, 84, of Tisbury, Massachusetts, was never charged with a crime, and was reinstated to his post at the crosswalk of Tisbury School on Tuesday following public outcry. But his guns are still to be sold.

  15. So, I'm permanently banned from Twitter for telling Nashville Mayor Briley that I hope his opponent beats him. I was "inciting violence."
  16. Good with Photoshop? Need to take a pic of Beto, put the Hitler moustache on him, and put "Betolph Hitler, next generation gun confiscator" on it.
  17. Yes I know it is Bill & the Blaze. "Bill added, "I have said for years that if you commit a crime with a firearm in this country, you go to federal prison for ten years mandatory first conviction. That solves the gun violence problem. How many decades do I have to say this? How many times do I have to say it? If you're a criminal using a gun in a crime, it becomes a federal crime and of you have a mandatory ten. That stops gun violence. I get so angry because the rest of this gun stuff is BS. It's political posturing. You want to solve it, you put the criminals with guns in prison for ten years. That's what you do!"" https://www.theblaze.com/glenn-radio/philadelphia-suspect?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily-Newsletter__AM-Final 2019-08-17&utm_term=TheBlaze Daily AM - last 270 days
  18. Sunday morning on TV, I saw a group of doctors who want to study gun violence as an epidemic that can be identified and prevented, similar to a disease. I am not sure they can really make progress with that approach. It seems to me like a failing of society. However, since the shooter in El Paso was taken alive... Once he's convicted, why not turn him over for testing? ANY testing. Let's see what makes him tick. Hook him up to electrodes. Vivisect him. Whatever they want for a year. Just make certain that the specimen is cremated at the end of the experiments. A) Future potential shooters may be deterred if they know they will not experience the rock star treatment previous shooters received. B) It will give the medical community something productive to do. C) Who knows? Maybe they may make some progress on identifying these freaks before they act. I realize this will never gain traction in this country, but thanks for letting me vent.
  19. DALLAS (AP) — H. Ross Perot, the colorful, self-made Texas billionaire who rose from a childhood of Depression-era poverty and twice ran for president as a third-party candidate, has died. He was 89. The cause of death was leukemia, a family spokesman said Tuesday. Perot, whose 19% of the vote in 1992 stands among the best showings by an independent candidate in the past century, died early Tuesday at his home in Dallas surrounded by his devoted family, family spokesman James Fuller said. As a boy in Texarkana, Texas, Perot delivered newspapers from the back of a pony. He earned his billions in a more modern way, however. After attending the U.S. Naval Academy and becoming a salesman for IBM, he went his own way — creating and building Electronic Data Systems Corp., which helped other companies manage their computer networks. Yet the most famous event in his business career didn’t involve sales and earnings; he financed a private commando raid in 1979 to free two EDS employees who were being held in a prison in Iran. The tale was turned into a book and a movie. “I always thought of him as stepping out of a Norman Rockwell painting and living the American dream,” said Tom Luce, who was a young lawyer when Perot hired him to handle his business and personal legal work. “A newspaper boy, a midshipman, shaking Dwight Eisenhower’s hand at his graduation, and he really built the computer-services industry at EDS.” “He had the vision and the tenacity to make it happen,” Luce said. “He was a great communicator. He never employed a speechwriter — he wrote all his own speeches. He was a great storyteller.” Perot first became known to Americans outside of business circles by claiming that the U.S. government left behind hundreds of American soldiers who were missing or imprisoned at the end of the Vietnam War. Perot fanned the issue at home and discussed it privately with Vietnamese officials in the 1980s, angering the Reagan administration, which was formally negotiating with Vietnam’s government. Perot’s wealth, fame and confident prescription for the nation’s economic ills propelled his 1992 campaign against President George H.W. Bush and Democratic challenger Bill Clinton. Some Republicans blamed him for Bush’s loss to Clinton as Perot garnered the largest percentage of votes for a third-party candidate since former President Theodore Roosevelt’s 1912 bid. During the campaign, Perot spent $63.5 million of his own money and bought 30-minute television spots. He used charts and graphs to make his points, summarizing them with a line that became a national catchphrase: “It’s just that simple.” Perot’s second campaign four years later was far less successful. He was shut out of presidential debates when organizers said he lacked sufficient support. He got just 8% of the vote, and the Reform Party that he founded and hoped to build into a national political force began to fall apart. However, Perot’s ideas on trade and deficit reduction remained part of the political landscape. He blamed both major parties for running up a huge federal budget deficit and allowing American jobs to be sent to other countries. The movement of U.S. jobs to Mexico, he said, created a “giant sucking sound.” Perot continued to speak out about federal spending for many years. In 2008, he launched a website to highlight the nation’s debt with a ticker that tracked the rising total, a blog and a chart presentation. Henry Ross Perot was born in Texarkana on June 27, 1930. His father was a cotton broker; his mother a secretary. Perot said his family survived the Depression relatively well through hard work and by managing their money carefully. Young Perot’s first job was delivering papers in a poor, mostly black part of town from his pony, Miss Bee. When the newspaper tried to cut his commission, he said he complained to the publisher — and won. He said that taught him to take problems straight to the top. From Texarkana, Perot went to the U.S. Naval Academy even though he had never been on a ship or seen the ocean. After the Navy, Perot joined International Business Machines in 1955 and quickly became a top salesman. In his last year at IBM, he filled his sales quota for the year in January. In 1962, with $1,000 from his wife, Margot, Perot founded Electronic Data Systems. Hardware accounted for about 80% of the computer business, Perot said, and IBM wasn’t interested in the other 20%, including services. Many of the early hires at EDS were former military men, and they had to abide by Perot’s strict dress code — white shirts, ties, no beards or mustaches — and long workdays. Many had crew cuts, like Perot. The company’s big break came in the mid-1960s when the federal government created Medicare and Medicaid, the health programs for seniors, the disabled and the poor. States needed help in running the programs, and EDS won contracts — starting in Texas — to handle the millions of claims. EDS first sold stock to the public in 1968, and overnight, Perot was worth $350 million. His fortune doubled and tripled as the stock price rose steadily. In 1984, he sold control of the company to General Motors Corp. for $2.5 billion and received $700 million in a buyout. In 2008, EDS was sold to Hewlett-Packard Co. Perot went on to establish another computer-services company, Perot Systems Corp. He retired as CEO in 2000 and was succeeded by his son, Ross Perot Jr. In 2009, Dell Inc. bought Perot Systems. Forbes magazine this year estimated Perot’s wealth at $4.1 billion. Perot was not immune to mistakes in business. His biggest might have been a 1971 investment in duPont Glore Forgan, then one of the biggest brokerage houses on Wall Street. The administration of President Richard Nixon asked Perot to save the company to head off an investor panic, and he also poured money into another troubled brokerage, Walston & Co., but wound up losing much of his $100 million investment. It was during the Nixon administration that Perot became involved in the issue of U.S. prisoners of war in Southeast Asia. Perot said Secretary of State Henry Kissinger asked him to lead a campaign to improve treatment of POWs held in North Vietnam. Perot chartered two jets to fly medical supplies and the wives of POWs to Southeast Asia. They were not allowed into North Vietnam, but the trip attracted enormous media attention. After their release in 1973, some prisoners said conditions in the camps had improved after the failed missions. In 1979, the Iranian government jailed two EDS executives and Perot vowed to win their release. “Ross came to the prison one day and said, ‘We’re going to get you out,’” one of the men, Paul Chiapparone, told The Associated Press. “How many CEOs would do that today?” Perot recruited retired U.S. Army Special Forces Col. Arthur “Bull” Simons to lead a commando raid on the prison. A few days later, the EDS executives walked free after the shah’s regime fell and mobs stormed the prison. Simons’ men sneaked the executives out of the country and into Turkey. The adventure was recalled in Ken Follett’s best-selling book “On Wings of Eagles” and a TV miniseries. In later years, Perot pushed the Veterans Affairs Department to study neurological causes of Gulf War syndrome, a mysterious illness reported by many soldiers who served in the 1991 Persian Gulf war. He scoffed at officials who blamed the illnesses on stress — “as if they are wimps” — and paid for additional research. Perot received a special award from the VA for his support of veterans and the military in 2009. In Texas, Perot led commissions on education reform and crime. He was given many honorary degrees and awards for business success and patriotism. Former President George W. Bush said in a statement that “Texas and America have lost a strong patriot.” “Ross Perot epitomized the entrepreneurial spirit and the American creed. He gave selflessly of his time and resources to help others in our community, across our country, and around the world,” Bush said. “He loved the U.S. military and supported our service members and veterans. Most importantly, he loved his dear wife, children, and grandchildren.” While he worked at Perot Systems in suburban Dallas, entire hallways were filled with memorabilia from soldiers and POWs that Perot had helped. His personal office was dominated by large paintings of his wife and five children and bronze sculptures by Frederic Remington. Several original Norman Rockwell paintings hung in the waiting area, and Perot once told a visiting reporter that he tried to live by Rockwell’s ethics of hard, honest work and family. ___ Associated Press writer Jamie Stengle in Dallas contributed to this report. https://www.apnews.com/0f058258a404438bb2978ffcf4cabed1 on a personal note i worked on his 1992 Presidential Run and found him to be the exact man to have changed this country for the better,a brilliant political outsider who had no attachments to the D.C. machine and could`nt be bought. a genuinely brilliant mind who thought outside of the box in every way and had actual grassroots solutions to the problems that have multiplied today. what was done to him by the D.C. swamp was the model to what is happening to the President today. R.I.P. H. Ross God Bless.
  20. Had an interesting Saturday night while playing with my band. There was a gentleman sitting at the bar near the band and was watching us during our first and 2nd set. He'd clap and throw compliments our way. During one of the breaks I went outside to check out the incoming thunderstorms and out walked the guy behind me. I'm checking out the night sky, he walks up and starts talking about his experiences with bands and performers. That's all cool. Come to inspect this guy a bit closer and he's wearing a Bernie 2020 hat and a Feel the Bern T-shirt. I'm thinking to myself, "I hope no one sees me." We carry on a few more pleasantries complimenting my band, and other stuff. Then he starts going off about Bern. ..... You should see him. He's amazing. He's going to fix this country. He shows off his hat, shows off his T-shirt then pulls it up to show the shirt underneath and says, "Normally I have a F-Trump T-shirt on under the Bernie one." What he didn't notice and I couldn't help was his zipper was down and you could see vag. (I'm kidding but he was that bad.) I looked at him and said, "Hey, I'm here to play some music, drink some beer and make a night of it. Not talk politics." His comeback was....."Go ahead you Republican and vote for your narcissist and destroy this country." My retort was, "Well I guess it's better than Socialism." His come back,......Ready for this......"It's not Socialism it's Democratic Socialism." Sigh
  21. A good read, the real Mueller! "Mueller was hired to be a neutral arbiter, to bring a clear conclusion that the country could unite behind. But on Wednesday, he ripped off the mask of neutrality and showed himself for what he is: A partisan in the fight between the populists and the establishment." https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/steve-hilton-time-to-take-the-fight-to-the-ridiculous-never-trumpers
  22. I'm not sure if this is political or not, but I'll tag it anyway. The Navy wants to decomission the USS Harry S. Truman rather than refuel her. They say that it will be cheaper and they can replace her with a new carrier. Trump overruled them, saying that it will save money to refuel vs buying a new carrier. I'm not sure. I'm all for being efficient but I like to leave military stuff to the military guys. But I do know that sometimes those guys want new gadgets that they don't need. Thoughts?
  23. Is there ANY frozen pizza that is decent??? Closest pizza shack is Domino's which I haven't had for a LONG time.. and don't really like. Been craving pizza for weeks, decided to splurge today and didn't want to drive far. Was gonna cost me $22.00+ for one xlrg pizza.. Couldn't bare to blow that much money, and ended up going to the grocery store, grabbing mushrooms, onions, banana pepper rings(because they never have enough good topings!), and a frozen Digiorno. I haven't not spruced up a frozen pizza in years. Do people actually choke them down OEM/stock?? My main two complaints, They all seem to have a similar taste/flavor. Ever notice that??? A bit salty.. hard to describe.. hints of the same taste in $1. personal no-name brand crap, and $10 pizzas. The crust! Directions always say bake on rack no pan. I cut the roof of my mouth on that hard crunchy crust every time! and then usually I burn my mouth shortly thereafter. Frozen crust is never even close to takeout pizza. the heck. Took my mom years.. but she finally perfected making pizzas from scratch shortly before I moved out and away... Guess I gotta start myself.
