TM, Any series with Sarah Lancaster has to be a must watch. Especially if it takes place in West Yorkshire:) One of my favorite places on earth. Appalled, Bipartisan? You mean when Ben aka Semiticleo and Anduril dominated the other side of the aisle you seem unable to straddle since your left leg is longer than your right leg.

Went to Diplomad to get his take on Child Soldiers but he is in process of moving (actually unpacking and setting up his tech) so no posts since 11/17 but asked him anyway for his take. http://www.thediplomad.com/2017/11/moores-pity.html?showComment=1511299013150#c719044416073064193 This is his note on the Moore kerfuffle. The only time DuDa shows up is when Soros is worried he is losing and needs more hysterical interference with the truth and power we possess here at JOM, including our ability to invoke KillFile anytime we want. Imagine if all the pubs in Ireland had a version of KillFile once a Irishman has had too many Guinnesses (that would be north of 8). We'd have peace and reconciliation in the North.

Porch, Which side of 95? /Eletist joke
Toggle Commented 4 hours ago on Will The Dream Kill Christmas? at JustOneMinute
Just 3 of us plus 3 beagles for Thanksgiving. In Belgium, before my MIL passed, they would get 31 for Christmas dinner. It was my job to go up to the storage on the 3rd floor and bring down the 3 extra table leaves so we could extend it to seat 24. the 14 adults and 10 older kids. The other kids ate in the daily informal dining area. No thanksgiving in Belgium:) but politics especially American politics was always on the agenda. If we didn't exist they'd have nothing to talk about since Belgian politics is pretty boring. It took them over 560 days to form the existing government.

RG, Gator booster buddy confirms Chip Kelly and is beside himself since Kelly is not a Florida guy and is afraid he won't know how to relate to the kids during recruitment, etc. Evidently, its not going down well with the donor class.

Since sex is in the news these days, here is a compedium of advice: "There are a number of mechanical devices which increase sexual arousal, particularly in women. Chief among these is the Mercedes-Benz SL500." Lynn Lavner "It isn't premarital sex if you have no intention of getting married." George Burns "Women might be able to fake orgasms. But men can fake a whole relationship." Sharon Stone "Hockey is a sport for white men. Basketball is a sport for black men. Golf is a sport for white men dressed like black pimps." Tiger Woods "My mother never saw the irony in calling me a son-of-a-bitch." Jack Nicholson "Clinton lied. A man might forget where he parks or where he lives, but he never forgets oral sex, no matter how bad it is." Barbara Bush (Former US First Lady) "Ah, yes, divorce, from the Latin word meaning to rip out a man's genitals through his wallet." Robin Williams "According to a new survey, women say they feel more comfortable undressing in front of men than they do undressing in front of other women. They say that women are too judgmental, where, of course, men are just grateful." Robert De Niro "There's a new medical crisis. Doctors are reporting that many men are having allergic reactions to latex condoms. They say they cause severe swelling. So what's the problem?" Dustin Hoffman "There's very little advice in men's magazines, because men think, 'I know what I'm doing. Just show me somebody naked !" Jerry Seinfeld "See, the problem is that God gives men a brain and a penis and only enough blood to run one at a time." Robin Williams "It's been so long since I've had sex, I've forgotten who ties up whom." Joan Rivers "Sex is one of the most wholesome, beautiful and natural experiences money can buy." Steve Martin "You don't appreciate a lot of stuff in school until you get older. Little things like being spanked every day by a middle-aged woman. Stuff you pay good money for later in life." Elmo Phillips "Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same." Oscar Wilde

RG, Chip Kelly? I'll go to my booster friend with that and see if he can confirm. Of course with Chip we will need a top QB recruit.

daddy, The schadenfraude here is that all of this is coming out because of Trump! Back when Bubba had his "issues", none of this came out or would have come out due to his behavior. Of course not, doing that would legitimize his deviance. So, the left felt enabled now to go after a harrasser (i.e. Trump) but it has backfired like all the other things they have tried to stick on him. Actually, this time it is a riccochet versus a backfire. Its almost worthy of buying a new super-duper popcorn machine.

When you finish reading CH's 8:38 link to moar 60's, you realize that Zippy could have done even more damage to the country just due to and indirect association with Manson via his relationship with Dohrn and Ayers. I am surprised we are still a republic worth keeping.

Looks like that missing Argentine sub has 2 days of oxygen left. We are contributing 2 P3 sub hunters to the search. Not a nice way to die. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5103149/Argentine-female-submariner-warned-problems-board.html

Dave, Was it a Tesla? If so, disappointed. BTW, Barron Trump is destined to be over 6'3 or 4. Because both parents are tall. Frederick is already 5'10 at 14. I am buying for the Spring and Summer as if he is 6'0''. That is the way they grow.

Hell yeah, Christmas is more special this year than the last 8. We are going to our Florida hidey and enjoy every minute while decorating the Southampton house for those days leading up. Saturday after Thanksgiving we have our annual Christmas parade where we have all the fire trucks and ambulances lit up. My dad started the Christmas decoration effort on Job's Lane and Main Street. Hundreds of christmas trees and permanent trees lit up. Spectacular. Plus we have a huge creche at our Basilica on Hill Street. Lots of Advent activities and events. Really special. Especially the carolers and musicians all through the season. Thank you President Trump for bringing God back into Christmas.

Hard to believe. My first corporate "seminar" in sexual harrassment was back in 1979. Look how far we have come: I had 3 exceptional women working for me on a Nuke in Michigan. All of them unqualified for the job they were hired to do. This is back in the day when we hire people out of Barber College to work as quality control engineers. I came into the job from another job and was horrified at what I found. Decided to go the training route versus outright dismissal. Lots of reasons why but having to find qualified people was a problem and anyone else brought it would have to be trained also. The end result was that because I decided to treat the unqualified women as that and put them into intensive training for their jobs I was brought up on sexual harrassment that went nowhere because the NRC stepped in, agreed with me and fined the operator for allowing unqualified engineering and technical personnel in the first place. It can be extremely dangerous out there for any employer or male/female if the personnel structure of compliance is not in place when hiring.

Well if you think Fauxchohantas and The Bern are on the cusp of being Maoists, Mayor Bane is actually one. I am sure he will relate well to the good people of Iowa at their local Methodist church pot luck dinners.

As an ex-nuclear weapons officer can I correct a number of media assumptions and even the General's misunderstood remarks in re an "illegal" order from POTUS authorizing a strike? Within the National Command Authority there is something called the "Two Man Rule". POTUS has ultimate authority to call a pre-emptive or defensive use of Nukes without any recommendation or pass through from DoD. However, he must secure a second "endorsement" from the SecDef. No one at the launch center or in flight is going to commit any arming and release action without the Two Man Rule covering the order. I think what the General was getting at is that if the POTUS still wants to proceed without the SecDef's endorsement, then POTUS would have to fire SecDef, go to the Deputy SecDef or the JCS for the Second Man approval. Doing on his own, makes it technically "illegal". But again, as with any news story where you are not present for the full conversation and context you cannot depend on the reporter and his editors or paper to be 100% accurate and knowlegable of the topic.
