Does anybody remember an HBO movie called Civil War 2? Phil Hartman plays the president. It wasn't a comedy but it's actually laughable yet oddly predictive: The film is set in a United States in which foreign immigration has skyrocketed: The mayor of Los Angeles speaks only in Spanish, Rhode Island is populated mostly by Chinese-Americans, and Alabama has a congressman from India. Politics is openly reduced to a matter of catering to various ethnic groups for their votes - the Alabama congressman will only support the U.S. President if his state receives more money for Hindu temples. When an atomic weapon is used in Pakistan, an international organization makes plans to bring orphans to Idaho. Meanwhile, the NN cable network is reporting the events and influencing them at the same time. News director Mel (Dan Hedaya) attempts to time events to maximize ratings, while his staff becomes polarized over the political issues involved in the conflict between the Governor and the President. Standard fare for the cable network is to show footage of crying immigrant children, which is done with the Pakistani orphans waiting to move to Idaho. https://youtu.be/D1maFbyzxDo

I guess he voted with the dissenting justices: "I hate Christianity as Socialists hate soap" - Aleister Crowley.

Why do people insist on pronouncing "erudite" wrong? Can you imagine if people pronounced the Greek goddess with an extra random vowel like "Af-re-oh-di-tee"?

I don't if Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olberman are still alive but if they are I bet they would both enjoy a gift card from Bed Bath & Beyond.

Elizabeth Warren wants to dole out $50 million dollars for gay reparations. Do we need to give up any first born sons while we're at it? I guess all of that's done under the table.

Tell me again how PDJT is worse than Gov Kate Brown. No Senator is illegal!

This is about a mayoral election but I think it's good that Texas has a law prohibiting vote harvesting. Posted by: MissMarple2 | June 23, 2019 at 12:42 PM Who will pick our votes?

I’ve been noticing a lot of people lately, like the much maligned PDJT, giving references like Two Thessalonians or One Corinthians. Is that Confirmation Bias or The Mandela Effect?

Why don’t you try Baptism, my boy? It’s ever so much more easier. The Second Trial of Jesus: Not Guilty! https://youtu.be/uaEkjYK3yO4 Rabbi Arial makes one interesting point. When the high priests and scribes paid Judas they bought Jesus according to tradition or law (is there any other kind?). He compares it to Joseph being sold in to slavery by his brothers. That’s how Jesus could be both Messiach Ben Joseph and Messiach Ben David. Also it provides a legalistic undeniability. Although it’s never been remotely controversial to me who shot JR.

GUS You know, you could use a Peavey and a Marshall at your cabin.

Mr Iggy Do you have any thoughts on chipping branches green vs cured? I can see how green branches could get mashed and gum it up by I don’t have any proof. I bought a peavy today at Northern Tools. Do you think the same guy designed rug hooks?

I was watching some of the tragic video out of Appleton, WI That dude went from “agonal “ breathing to running and gunning. I don’t know if he actually got shot by the cops. Say he did though. He went from opiate overdose to narcan to getting shot next to EMT’s. He’s gonna have a bad time. I’m not exactly heartbroken over those facts. So now every wretched overdose is going to be handcuffed and Terry v Ohio’d And once again the cops will be portrayed as the bad guys. IHTFP.

I haven’t read all of O Henry yet but I probably should, jim. Made it home. I had a nice five year old peach tree snap. Possibly at the graft. I’m leaving it till the fruit ripens, hopefully it will. There’s a sparse connection remaining The pecan tree is amazing. It looks like we had an earthquake. I’ve taken two hot air balloon rides and that’s what it looks like on its side similar in appearance to when the balloon is being inflated. The tree and three odd feet of soil shifted 90 degrees. The aluminum powder coated fencing i ringed it with is remarkably unmolested. I hope my toothbrush still has a charge.

No tornado mr narciso. However, my little sedan got hit by wind sheer right after Old Hickory Blvd and I nearly changed lanes. Lots of trees down around Nashville. I saw one car surrounded on three sides by half a tree but no damage unless the side mirror took a hit.

You ever handle a froe Mr Iggy? I didn’t go home because the power was out anyway. I need to go to Northern Tiools for one of those generator control boxes you hook to your main breaker panel. And a 220 adapter specific to my generator. And a feeler gauge to see how close that tree came to taking off my truck’s bumper.

I was just kidding around but now I have to go home because my wife tells me a 60’ pecan tree got uprooted so you know it’s bad. Missed the well house which is good. May have missed a camper I would love to collect a check on.
