Ig, your 8:12. I agree. The left can't keep electing people like this, or we're done.

Of all the jail cells in all the towns in all the world, he walks into mine, and Jeffrey Epstein doesn't commit suicide. Casablanca

Hey, narciso and everyone. Just have been so disgusted at the vile and insanely angry democratic voters who elect poisonous people like Schiff. Haven't had much to say that wasn't filled with contempt and revulsion for the media, press, and liberal voters.

Double, double, toil and trouble Fire burn and cauldron bubble, Turn the lights off, dim the lights, Break the hyoid, squeeze real tight, Epstein's not living thru the night. :) Forgive me. Nov I'll shut up. Just couldn't work a rhyme with the proper tag before it. :)

It was a dark and stormy night ... when Epstein didn't kill himself.

Taibbi sat and watched this coup taking shape and kept silent. He and other Trump haters share a great deal of blame for the longevity of the coup, as well as the lies that 50% of Americans truly believe. I'd like to say as much, but he's not like the plotters and filth on the left. Taibbi is disgusting.

Here's the article (plus the same stories on all of the local television channels) if anyone is interested on what is coming: https://www.tulsaworld.com/news/tulsa-race-massacre-graves-search-scientists-start-do-over-at/article_ca7d7d21-5a74-5458-8327-b8061ddb6ac4.html My husband had one comment, 'It's all wrong.' I asked him 'What do you mean?' He said, 'Look at the people holding the equipment.'

Sorry for that long comment. (It helped my frustration, though. :)

aiieee! Why is the news so awful?! Ignoring it means you live in a pretty prison. All lovely and easy on you, but the things you consider important, like truth, justice, and the right of free expression are so, so limited to a tiny fraction of life -- one's mind is insulted. How did the people living under communist rule for so long stand their repression? Because people's innate emotions remain the same -- they're born with the sense of right and wrong. Honest people seek the truth. Sometimes I want to scream. Here in the supposed 'center' of the country, what the press and media love to call the 'heartland' isn't always full of truth and light. The left is here, a breeding ground for democratic cockroaches, and they believe what they hear and watch and read. Truly frightening. They believe President Trump is a treasonous, lawbreaking monster. The lies of Schiff, Pelosi, et al., draw them like flies. Coupled with this is the attention now being focused on the geological survey by the state archeological office as they use scanners to search for possible unmarked graves from the 1921 race massacre. It used to be a race 'riot', but now, according to 'oral' history and family stories passed down since then, there are hundreds of bodies buried in mass graves. Yesterday observers and one elected official got bent out of shape because the archeological team hasn't listed a site the onlookers just know is filled with mass graves. The site, Inner Dispersal Loop, is under State Highway 75, and people have been told for years that 'there's where graves are located.' According to another report 'they dug trenches along the railroad track and shoveled in the bodies.' The people of Tulsa, as well as the people in this state and nation, will continue to pay for anger and hatred they had nothing to do with, as well as a debt succeeding generations tried to rectify and paid for so long ago.

I've come to hate the left like I hate roaches, rats, and, I'll throw in termites, too, simply because of the way those insects breed, explode, and destroy. Evidently the left, with all of its media, celebrities, university partners, and moronic, gullible voters consider this a fight to the death of our way of life. I. Hate. Them.
Someone posted an article from bejohngalt today. It is piercing in how it details how Muslims have come to be 'most favored' and rate special treatment and respect since 9/11. The list is long and makes me sick to my stomach at how twisted the left and media are. They've enabled this insanity.

No, Jane, I never went to Braughing. One of the places I loved to go was the little village where Dr. Doolittle was filmed, Castle Combe. Loved Bath. Also loved the Cotswalds. My husband gave a talk one time in Wales for the Sunday Times, and just thought that area was gorgeous. We took a train up there. We also took a train up to Scotland one time and went to a dinner where Prince Charles was, but it was a mob scene, so never tried to get close. Though we were just a few tables from him. I think the closest I ever got to a royal was to the Duchess of Kent. We went to a ball where she was honored or was a sponsor. Our table was just a few feet away from the dignatary's table. (She had a broad bottom.) :)

We lived in Kensington, at Oakwood Court, just a couple minutes walk from Holland Park. Our children did go to school at ASL in St. Johns Wood. Our son went from lst grade and graduated from there. I could drive up to school the back way, from Holland Park up Ladbroke Grove (behind Notting Hill) and thru Maida Vale and on up to the school. We owned two horses and paid for boarding another one at a stable in London (different times, one of our horses, Crescent, a bay, got sick and had to go to a veterinary college north of London, and then he passed away -- loved that horse :) -- , anyway, they were at a mews a couple of blocks north of Hyde Park. Lilo Blum's stable was south of the park. Our stable was north. I'd never ridden English, actually wasn't that good of a rider, so after we got the horse for our daughter, I went out to a riding academy west of London -- about a 45 minute drive, and, man, was the traffic horrible. :) Used to grit my teeth until I got out of London, which took a while. We went all over to different stables in the countryside to ride and take lessons, all of us, well, my husband, daughter, and me. Our son wasn't interested. We had a horse up at Trent Park stables, north of London, used to take the tube up there. I took jumping lessons up there for about a year. I never drove our car up there, my husband did, but I wasn't as familiar with area north in London (except for Hampstead and Golders Green) as I was south and west. Perhaps because we lived in Kensington. If I had to go north or east, I usually took the tube (sometimes a taxi.) London is a big city. And, it's even bigger now.

This was a tweet posted by Maria Bustamente from an article by sara carter: Ilhan Omar’s New Pitch: ‘Let the United Nations Manage the U.S. Southern Border', an agency that has the expertise and the training to handle massive flows of refugees humanely,” said Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to a Minneapolis audience this week referring to the situation in our southern border. When I went to twitter to check it out, there were tweets about this from over 15 other people (all outraged) including Laura Ingraham and other news people. That little Somalian immigrant certainly knows how to stick it to the man, doesn't she. I read that her district loves her -- so she'll probably end up being reelected, or as a senator from Minnesota -- after all, the entire state did send that repulsive comedian there, didn't they. I wonder why so many aliens risk so much to come here, and end up poisoned by hatred and resentment. (That's not a question) :) I think I know.

You're right about that, clarice, the Italian lake country is wonderful. I can see why that actor [can't think of his name :) -- rhymes with loony] wanted to live there. Too bad his brand of politics enabled African migrants to overrun the area. Have the Italians managed to move the Africans to another area, not so used to the wealthy and tourists? And, clean up the area?

This must be what I was remembering. : The most inventive part of the palace, however, can be found underground: six natural grottos decorated with dark-and light-coloured pebbles and shells in designs reflecting nautical themes. https://www.stresa.com/borromeanislands

Jane, we stayed at Villa d'Este on Lake Como on one of our Italian trips. We took a boat ride (small boat, thought we were going to sink. Marco Zannoni, was our Italian host who lived near there, rented the boat and piloted it (think fishing boat/canoe :)) on Lake Maggiore. He took us to an island on the lake. There's some kind of grotto on the island, and it has all of these sea shells embedded in the walls. I keep thinking it had something to do with Napoleon -- why am I thinking that? (Gonna have to look it up.) Was really interesting. Also, we ate lunch outside at a restaurant on that island. I've forgotten the name of the grotto, am going to have to go research for it. :) It's fun remembering all of the things we did during the 13+ years we lived in London.

bubarooni, your 9:05 from last night is just lovely. Made me smile. I needed the smile. I accidentally read a comment or two on the thread that started from Mr. Maguire's tweet about Lawrence O'Donnald and his unverified slander in regard to the bank and Trump's business with the Russian, Russian, Russians's. The left truly, truly believes the Russians own Trump, that the Republicans are evil, and that the left's revenge is about to happen because the truth is now going to be revealed. According to one man who is a writer for Newsweek, a professor, an author, and just an all-around, brilliant guy, the new book that he's just written will be released in a week or so and will reveal all of Trump's crime and treachery. (He hates McConnell, Graham, and especially the Trump voters.)

Man. I can't keep up with jom while using my phone. Grrr.... I posted twice on the last thread just now. Thinking I was responding to Jane about her trip to Milan. And have no idea which thread I saw that on. We went to Italy (Milan, Rome, Venice) regularly. One trip to Milan was with a horse racing club. We went to several stud farms, wineries, racing, an auction, and the countryside was beautiful. The Duomo de Milan is impressive, and if I'm remembering correctly, is in center of Milan.
