Where's the love? Surely PB has strong opinions about it being nothing but a plot that was preemptively hatched in 1972 by George Soros, Pol Pot, and Bill Ayers while they kept a resolute, tearful vigil next to Saul Alinsky's death bed.

I like to mess with the scammers who pretend to be calling from Microsoft about a security problem with my computer (I have a Mac).  I make them repeat everything until they start sighing and grinding their teeth, then I put them on hold for a few minutes while I "start up my computer." When I pick up again I say, whether it’s a man or woman, “All set, but before we start I was just wondering if you’re wearing underwear.” They usually hang up immediately, although one guy actually scolded me for not taking the situation seriously.

I blame Obama for this and all the other 2018 school shootings because, despite numerous dire warnings and predictions, he was so busy destroying the country in myriad other ways he never got around to confiscating everybody's guns.

If you’re not deeply troubled by a POTUS who enthusiastically endorses the idea that the opposition party is guilty of treason for not applauding him during a speech, please explain in your own words how that's any different from the way North Korea rolls. If you disagree, please explain why, and don't be afraid to torture your logic.

And yet she and Barry are still out making divisive speeches and promoting failed policies.  It's like they never left.

But I do get why you don't want anyone bringing it up

I think its unforgivable for those cbeapskates to live in your head without paying rent the way they do. I hope they at least do the dishes once in awhile.

This is a normal weather pattern.  What has been unusual is that Florida had a break from hurricanes for about 10 years.  Look up the 30's and 40's and many other decades and you will see that hurricanes in Florida are a part of life there.  So educate yourself and stop with the man-made climate change bs.

I'm not sure I'm willing to trust a science adviser who accepts on faith and the word of a few priests that demonic possession and exorcism is real.

Good to see you RGG!  But you need to do a quick check in Flags of the World.

That's why Union Jack was in quotes. I saw that some vexillogically challenged person misidentified your shirt recently. Cheers!

The point is that your characterisation of Islam as anti-intellectual is simply inaccurate, and shows that you've absorbed the kind of facile, lumping polemics peddled by the kind of demagogues who favor sweeping generalizatons over careful distinctions.

It is interesting to consider why so many Greek texts were transmitted to us in Arabic.  It may largely be a matter of proximity:  I watched an interesting lecture a couple months ago that demonstrated that many Classical Greek authors actually lived in what is today coastal Turkey and Syria down to Egypt.  To call them Turks would be absurd as there were no Turks in Turkey at that time, but calling them Greeks gives the mistaken impression that the Classical apex was confined to the European side of the Dardanelles, when it wasn't:  two of the ancient Wonders were there (three if you count Rhodes) and they invented coinage.  If the texts remained local, they were presumably inherited by the Romans/Byzantiines and then later plundered by Muslims during their conquests.  The fact remains, however, that Islamic scholars studied and propagated these sources rather than destroying them.

Islam is a grand old faith that has caught a fundamentalist virus.  You have only to think back fifty years to find urbane Islamic cultures where thundering preachers were held in check by governments which, though not entirely secular, were pragmatic enough to recognize troublemakers and suppress them.  Two hundred years ago, Islamic societies were perceived by Westerners as licentious and immoral compared to their own, though now only the belly-dancer survives to remind us of this era.  I've never been able to figure out why so many Muslim men should suddenly develop an appetite for preaching and instead of living their lives peacefully and productively should obsessively share hectoring videos on the internet and submit to regular harangues on The Way Things Ought To Be, but I see this is not confined to Islam.  You guys have got a regular madrassa going on here.

I don't expect you to care about any of this, nor does it matter at all when it comes to current immigration policy.  We have to deal with Muslims as they are now, and I'm in favor of cooling it until they figure their shit out.  But your kind of relentless lumping just comes across as woefully ignorant of history, and your opposition to Muslim immigration is easily caricatured as garden-variety chauvinism.  Maybe turn off the radio and read a book.

How dare you presume to be a voice of reason and moderation, sir! Should have expected that from a Norwegian wearing a "Union Jack" shirt--lol!

What did someone say on the previous page - that Trump lied about phone calls with the Boy Scouts and with the President of Mexico?  Really?

Guess what guys?  I don't care if Trump even had phone calls with them, let alone what was said or whether he lied about it.  If he even did. 

Not in a world where Bill Clinton's foolish, reckless naiveté with North Korea is coming to fruition, and Berock Obama just gave Iran the green light to develop nuclear weapons - then removed sanctions and gave them cash so they could.  With an unconstitutional treaty not even submitted to the Senate for approval, no less.

All this bullshit about nothing - that gets breathlessly posted here every day.  Were and are these people too stupid to spot the lies Obama, members of his administration, Hilary Clinton, her associates, the rest of the Democrat Party, and the Fake News Media have been telling all along, in every comment, speech, and report, every day - or do they just not care about that?  I'm guessing 'too stupid', because they seem to believe their own bullshit, but 'don't care' is probably equally likely.

Hoppy Eostre to you, TL! I'd put my hands together for your entertaining and informative seasonal parade, but that's impossible to do at the moment because I decided to spend the weekend just hanging around the way Jesus did. Cheers!

WTF!! Someone needs to put a stop to this BS! She's gone from "no job" at the WH, to a "non-official" job, and now she has an "official" job?!? What the hell is going on? This family's egos are out of control. Or something even more nefarious, like daddy is unfit for office and she's the fixer, a de facto president? WTF?!


I think it's damn decent and gracious of her to "voluntarily" comply with government ethics regulations since she evidently wouldn't have been required to.

Podesta is a prick and a scumbag, and his ass should be thrown in jail if he broke the law. That doesn't mean DT and/or his cronies deserve a pass for anything they did. There should be one standard of integrity for everyone, and one person's malfeasance doesn't excuse or cancel out anyone else's.

Can we be sure Baron is his son? His wife must have been well stoned to have him between her legs.

She learned years ago to slip herself a roofie whenever he puts on what he calls his "incredibly seductive Latin lover" face and tells her that "Daddy's hungry," so she won't remember anything about the rest of the night.
