Toggle Commented yesterday on Greenland Debate Turns Icy at JustOneMinute
Condolences and prayers Rocco. Since I was young, I have always enjoyed reading a good almanac. (I have a feeling a few other JOMers here might share this quirk. They say Michael Barone read the Census when he was ten.) So I was excited to see in the new books section of my local library a new Almanac published by the National Geographic folks. It is such a collection of politically correct hooey, lots of sky dragon climate change bs and even too pages on human consumption of insects and how they can be made to appear more edible. It reads like a collection of Google doodles celebrating third world commie heroes bound together in a book. (I know the UN endorses this insect eating crap as well.) OL up thread posted how he had cancelled so many magazine subscriptions, as have I. Almost all the Hearst magazines, which includes Esquire and Popular Mechanics are Democrat propaganda rags, as is Smithsonian, Scientific American, National Geographic. I now go to the library and try to find books published before 1975 and read those for enjoyment.

Some shoe must be about to drop regarding the Clintons: it's the only time they can stomach being together. Retail sales of wine in the Hamptons way up. https://mol.im/a/7382083

Less than 24 hours remaining on my twitter suspension so I should be able to start reading links posted here.

I was inside MCC once, in the 1970s. I was a law student working for a big Wall Street law firm. The firm was doing pro bono work for prisoners. I suspect it was a write-off of first year associates' times plus good publicity. Anyway, I was asked to go the MCC and serve the warden with a subpoena in a prisoner's rights case. I went there in a business suit, showed the entrance guard the subpoena, and went inside. They stamped the back of my hand with that invisible ink that shows under a black light, like some night clubs did at the time. Once inside, no one could direct me to someone who would accept service of process of the subpoena. I wandered around inside for about 45 minutes, went to several different floors until I found someone who said they would accept the papers. It was a really low security place. I didn't see any bars-most of the walls were sheetrock. When I tried to leave, the guard at the entrance station had changed. The new guard asked me who I was. For a few seconds it occurred to me that I might not get out so easily. I told the guard why I was there and he let me out. It occurred to me that someone could have smuggled in a business suit and easily have talked his way out. The second guard never even asked to look at the stamp on my hand. MCC was also the place where now deceased leftist lawyer Lynne Stewart smuggled out materials and messages from the Blind Sheik. It is also the prison where one of the terrorist allies of the Blind Sheik used a comb to stab one of the guards in the eye.

I have a theory that Beto is being included in the race to offer comedic relief and to make Kamala look smart in comparison. He's a younger version of lurch with more spastic gesticulations. My son the BC student, liked Beto, until I told him the stroonz as avocado anecdote. By the way, I have been locked out of twitter for a week. The guy who told me to go eff myself with a hammer is still tweeting away, however.

MM, I am not sure about your part of the country but around here the hottest job search engine is called "indeed." The insurance industry is always hiring people. Many if not most claims people work out of their home or in virtual offices

I, for one, am glad that you post here so often, jimnj. I am also so glad that the late daddy convinced you to come to that fateful March meet-up. The Lord works in mysterious ways as that whole traumatic process may have had a beneficial effect on you. As I mentioned on the JOM FB page, I have had a bad time on social media lately. It troubles me that the tone gets dark here, but your posts are incredibly informative and hope that you continue to do so.
he would have ripped the bed sheets he was issued into thin strips and then braid them for strength. ....like with a cloth?
So now nearly a whole week has gone by. The entire field of Dem Presidential candidates, including a former Vice-President, just about every news outlet in the MSM and many other politicians have expressed the opinion repeatedly and urgently that Trump is a white supremacist racist, and so are his supporters. And after this relentless, full court press, what is the result? His Rasmussen Approval is still at 47%. This also after the stock market bull run has been shown to be remarkably fragile.
I almost, and I emphasize, almost, feel sorry for that harridan horizontal Harris for polling so badly. She seemed such a lock from an intersectional point of view. People who are attuned to conservative talk shows knew she had a glass jaw. Still, it is shocking that to characterize someone as being a prosecutor who put people in jail for breaking the law could cause such a massive loss of support. I know I am oversimplifying but the results of that Quinnipiac poll need a little more dissecting.

Matt in my prayers as well.
That granddaughter of RFK who overdosed in Hyannis last week was a classmate and friend of my older son. He said that she was in rehab all of last semester and had just posted on instagram that she was doing much better. I don't have much respect for many of her family members, but my son said she was a nice kid. Addiction can be very hard.

Also for leaving an innocent man on death row, and keeping inmates in jail after their sentences were up so the state could profit from their labor. And just by having hair that was leagues nicer than Kamala's.
I only caught about thirty seconds of the debate but what I did catch was apparently the moment of the night when Tulsi clocked Kamala with a haymaker. Tulsi has nicer hair too. Kamala's facial expression, that of a cornered cat, was not flattering. Been following on twitter. Our distinguished blog host has made some wry remarks.
rare log in from work for me to extend prayerful thoughts to Rocco's family.
