    Older kid has a fever but says she will go to school in the afternoon for her Physics exam. Poor kid.

    • DeniseVB says:

      What a trooper, hope she’s feeling better {{hugs}}.

    • leslie says:

      Here’s hoping she gets better quickly.

    • HELENK3 says:

      hope she feels better.

    • Somebody says:

      I hope your daughter feels better VM. She should check with her professors, most colleges and universities have the ability for her to take exams online. It depends on the school, some schools do all their exams online, the student is given a specific time and log in. Other schools will only do that under special circumstances.

      My SIL was going to miss an exam because her grandmother was dying, she flat out told the professor she’d just take the zero and retake the class rather than miss her grandmother’s last moment on earth. As it turned it, her grandmother passed away about an hour before the scheduled exam so technically she could have made it. Her professor made arrangements for her to take her final exam online though. She had to call him when she was ready and of course there was a time limit. Point being for a sick student or some other circumstance they can make accommodations and sometimes all you have to do is ask. Most professors will work with a student on a makeup time too. Obviously the circumstance has to be real; if a student always needs special accommodations then naturally suspicions would rise, as well they should.

      ❤ VM

    • votermom says:

      Update: after a nap, her fever has gone up to 101. 🙄
      I told her to go back to bed and forget about the exam – I’ll email her teacher about a make up test.

    Feel good story that national news is picking up:

    Teen saves baby with cpr at Walmart

  3. DeniseVB says:

    From feel good to head desk ….. WTF Obama?

    • DeniseVB says:

      lildoggy posted this morning on the last thread, re: Lisa Fithian, Ferguson protest organizer

      All I want to know is who pays her.

      Her(Lisa Fithian) group is funded by The Tides Foundation
      “One particularly significant donor to the Tides entities is Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Senator John Kerry. From 1994 to 2004, the Heinz Endowments, which Mrs. Kerry heads, gave the Tides Foundation and Center approximately $8.1 million in grants. Until February 2001, Mrs. Kerry also served as a trustee of the Carnegie Corporation of New York, which has given Tides numerous six-figure grants”.

      • Somebody says:

        Paid protestors what a crock.

      • votermom says:

        Iirc Teresa is also a donor to that creep that uses fare to destroy conservative bloggers. I forget his name.

      • swanspirit says:

        This is the kind of thing the Lamestream media needs to report ; it would make a great “expose” , but they won’t , unless FOX gets their hands on it , then they might .

      • swanspirit says:

        So if businesses and or individuals are harmed as a result of actions taken at the instigation of these organizers, can they sue The Tides Foundation and or Kerry’s wife?
        And wouldn’t that be interesting .

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        There have always been rumors that the death of John Heinz was a hit job of an unusual variety. A lot of people questioned if Teresa knew and that is why she made sure she had control of the money and not have it left in trust for the kids to manage when they reached majority. The Heinz family were R’s, not D’s. The switch over taking all the Heinz money right to Kerry’s door has always been seen as “fishy” in Western Pa.

  4. leslie says:

    I am sad to say that the MD who was flown in to Nebraska for Ebola treatment has died. I can only imagine the field day Sharpton, Jackson, Fithian, et al would have with this story if not for Ferguson. Well, maybe they can multi-task
    I’m off to work, bbl.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I just saw that news … he’s black, I wonder if his family will sue now 😦 So sad, why can’t they get this treatment “over there” since it’s been successful “here”. The doctor was in the advance stages by the time they got him into the U.S.

      • Somebody says:

        I think that’s the key is treating it early. At least it seems to me that’s the key. The ones that have gotten treatment early seem to have much better odds of surviving.

        As to why they can’t get the treatment over there, it’s my understanding they lack the facilities and the medical staff.

        • DeniseVB says:

          We should at least provide the treatment to the healthcare providers over there ? Seems they lost precious time with the latest victim by transporting him here.

          Made me think of the summit Obama held with African leaders a few months ago, didn’t he pledge them billions ? Have a feeling none of that’s going to be used to help their own people.

          • Somebody says:

            That’s the problem with most foreign aid. Unless and until those countries have stable and somewhat honest governments very little of the money makes it to actually help the people. We’ve poured untold amounts of money into various countries and yet people are still starving, they lack clean drinking waters, adequate medical facilities, etc.

            What the answer is, I don’t know, but what we’re doing isn’t working and yet we keep on doing it.

          • The Klown says:

            Check your cultural privilege! How dare you criticize other cultures!

            All cultures are equal!!!

          • Lulu says:

            Moving critically ill people is one of the worst things you can do. It interrupts care, places stress on the patient, takes them away from their care team who knows their status, etc. My guess is that his family already knew he was terminal to agree to this to begin with for a such a thing to be done. They do have care centers in west Africa but his wife is in the US and she wanted him here.

      • An interesting part of this story is that this physician did take an Ebola test and it came back negative. From what I read and I can’t remember where, he started getting ill at home with his wife and who knows who else. He started taking medicine for malaria, after not testing positive for Ebola, got sicker and sicker, then finally told his wife he thought he must have Ebola.
        #1 – the Ebola test is not 100% reliable
        #2 – he was with his wife when he got sick – is she quarantined? ( I guess he may have said that over the phone/internet and maybe not physically with her although I thought it said he visited her at home in Maryland.

    • HELENK3 says:

      did you see the fiancee of the first ebola victim who came here is going to write a book.
      lets see suing the hospital, writing a book. so will the taxpayer who had to pay for his treatment get any of their money back from the profits she makes?

    • mothy6767 says:

      Internet and TV were down this morning. TEN minutes on the phone. All good. Plug from box to outlet melted so I have to have wiring looked at. CAR was so good I stayed on the phone to give up. I was prepared for war. Her name was for real Shaniqua.

      • votermom says:

        Plug from box to outlet melted

        Do you plug directly into the wall or do you have one of those surge protector thingies?

        • mothy6767 says:

          Yep I live in my parents basement. 47 with mom and dad. I do it for the crud. Anyhow my parents have this creepy satanic ritual where they stretch their clothes on a board and glide hot metal. Weird stuff takes place. Steam starch. I not get it.
          Today the conduit to shell sparked and died.
          House is three bedroom five baths. The guy who owned it before us was an engineer that took in foster kids but he did all his own work so some of the electric can use,a look.
          Funny in the same house he nurtured hundreds and now a little girl is being raised by great grand parents and a great gay uncle. One time a young man showed up at the front door with his kid and asked to come inside.He then told his son this is where I grew up.

    • HELENK3 says:

      I love this story. the shirt is sold out
      a suggested shirt for those who complained about his shirt is just perfect

        • swanspirit says:


        • Constance says:

          Why didn’t they just offer a shirt with scantily clad men that women find attractive? I think that is the real issue here. The hetero women feel like they are never offered a pleasing view of sex from their perspective. And that is because around the time Playboy popped up a group of men got together and decided “women are not sexually stimulated visually” because they were old and ugly and had noticed that women didn’t look at them so they decided that must be the case. Well they were wrong but somehow the male dominated media are sticking to that story even though “women’s content channel” after “women”s content channel” lack female viewers and “women’s magazine” after “women’s magazine” go out of business. Male media still sells men consumers hot babes and women consumers are supposed to purchase info on how they can better conform to standards of male fantasy instead of kick back and wallow in their own fantasies.

    tonight there will be a meteor shower. should be fun to watch

  7. HELENK3 says:

    had a random thought this AM.
    the dem voters found out through gruber the dems will not respect them in the morning

  8. HELENK3 says:

    any complaints about being open on Thanksgiving will be addressed by our labor relations dept
    shoot them, stone them and shut them up

    • There ya go Denise, I had commented upstream before reading through all the comments and you had put the article I’d forgotten right here. I need to stop and read through before inserting myself. Should know by now none of us collectively miss anything. You don’t have to read any other blogs – its all right here at the Klown’s place.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Ain’t we great 🙂 I guess facts are more important to us than the JournOlisters to try to voxsplain everything to us ! Thanks for that info on Lisa Fithian. It’s what paid media goofs should be doing … who are these protesters and who’s paying them ?

    Jonathan Gruber Brags About “Ripping Off” the Federal Government to Fund Romneycare:

    • Lulu says:

      The guy that dug out the “academic” bullshit/cocky asshole sessions that Gruber was so found of said much, much worse is coming. He started with the little stuff and is building up to the, I hope, indictable stuff. I want a forensic software person to look at his “model” to see how it manufactures fraudulent reports on demand for $400,000.

  10. The Klown says:

    • DeniseVB says:

      Another blue circle verified idiot. Sigh.

    • Somebody says:

      Call me silly, but I think if there was a radical group of Christians running around beheading people and claiming to do so in the name of Jesus that Christians the world over would denounce them. Christians would make sure the world knew they found the group’s actions abhorrent……..I’m not getting that sense from muslims in regard to ISIS.

      • The Klown says:

        That’s what killed Operation Rescue and other anti-abortion groups. A few nutcases set off bombs and shot some people and the groups disintegrated because nobody else wanted to be associated with them.

  11. The Klown says:

    If a woman anchor wore the same outfit every day, how many male viewers would even notice?

    • I have noticed that “Fashions provided by” is always included in the credits of my local news outlets. I must say, we have the most whorish women with brains I have ever witnessed on TV anywhere. Is that sexist to say whorish? Is that a word? I meant fashion-wise cause they wear spiked heels and low-cut, short dresses. The management know what they are doing here:

    • DeniseVB says:

      I don’t think the men notice the clothes on the Fox newsbunnies 😉 As for the men newsies, I only notice their clothes when their ties are doing that weird flashy-thing.

      • The Klown says:

        On those rare occasions when I watch TV news I’m not tuning in for a fashion show.

        • Constance says:

          Cry me a river Taylor. The shirt does make the point that “women scientists will not ever be fully welcome here” to me and to all little girls who see it. And it makes clear that Taylor is a creep.

          • elliesmom says:

            I don’t know. The women on his shirt looked pretty bad ass to me. They send off a real “don’t mess with me” message. Being a bad ass bitch myself, I’d say it was just the right environment for a woman who wants to land rockets on an asteroid to work in. It’s mostly women who make women feel like they’d be unwelcome in science and engineering. No male teacher ever told me I wasn’t good enough to go into engineering. It was women who tried to change my mind. When I got to engineering school, it was the changes the school wanted to make to “accommodate” women that got the men all up in arms. All we wanted was a few more bathrooms on campus, but the administration seemed to think everything needed to be pink. When our fellow classmates discovered we agreed with them that we shouldn’t be treated differently, they married us.

          • Constance says:

            I somehow doubt the little girl future scientists seeing Taylor’s shirt in media could carry out those mental gymnastics elliesmom. I get the same negative vibes from Taylor’s shirt that I get when I walk in a car oriented business and am confronted with tit and ass images on wall calendars. I go somewhere else where I feel welcome, to do business. Sure I could attempt to stay in the negative vibe environment and waste energy attempting to make excuses for it, but why when there are plenty of other options. But this was a taxpayer funded science display and so it was profoundly inappropriate to wear a shirt with sexualized images of only women. No apology could alter my negative impression and I wish this dip-shit would just stay out of my face.

  12. votermom says:

    Not sure where they got the numbers, but I’m RT’ng anyway coz Gruber sucks LOL

  13. The Klown says:

    This is some cray shit

  14. DeniseVB says:

    Expecting the Ferguson verdict soon? I may have to keep it on FNC today ….

  15. DeniseVB says:

    Wonder who’s funding these social justice professionals ? (List of cities ready to implode…)

    • votermom says:

      Same people that funded OWS, probably.
      I’m betting it’s a big nothing.

    • Lulu says:

      That list of cities looks like big nothing burger. A few lefties met in a coffee shop and sent in their stuff to be put on the list. The Austin ones are a few stoned people walking around the downtown section trying not be run over by bicyclists. And Longview TX? What?

  16. HELENK3 says:

    Happy Monday MYIQ

  17. HELENK3 says:

    not the sharpest tools in the shed are they? so when the businesses they attack leave the area and open somewhere else, and they are out of work and then homeless because they can’t keep up the mortgage payments will we have to listen to them cry and claimed they are owed?

  18. DeniseVB says:

    LOL ! Gruber’s been trending on twitter for almost a week now, do ya suppose the msm has noticed yet ? I’ve seen a few blame Romney/Gruber/Republicans/ad nauseum. Obama owns this baby 😀

  19. HELENK3 says:

    this is one hell of an article.
    race relations are getting worse under backtrack

  20. The Klown says:

  21. The Klown says:

    • DeniseVB says:

      The AP is useless, that article reeks of partisan Obot drooling spin. Bush and Reagan did it too is not the same as APsplaining Obama’s amnesty push of millions more. In fact the whole darn msm doesn’t explain anything well as we’re NOW learning about Ocare.

  22. HELENK3 says:

    backtrack’s not the lonely one


    • DeniseVB says:

      Good grief who’s showing up? Last I heard Lisa Fithian’s only teaching “civil” disobedience.

    • Constance says:

      Good plan. I hope they just warn off innocent civilians, surround the protestors and let them wear themselves out protesting. Then arrest anyone who destroyed property or caused bodily harm to others. With the state of emergency the Feds will pay for some of the costs which is only fitting since Obama and Holder and people they consult with have been fanning the flames if not dumping gas on them.

      • Constance says:

        Since media profit from stories about states of emergency there should be a way to impose an emergency tax on media to help pay for the government services required during an emergency.

  23. HELENK3 says:

    St. Louis Mayor Slay says he has had an open line of communication with protesters, and that has helped them prepare response to Ferguson, Mo., protests – @rlippmann
    see original on

  24. HELENK3 says:

    just had the weirdest thought. if there is rioting in ferguson, will backtrack slip an executive order on immigration during the chaos?

    • Constance says:

      I don’t know, I think Obama wants to be loud and proud about the immigration executive order. His main purpose is to be in the face of Republicans, if he really cared about immigration he would have dealt with it his first two years in office when the House and Senate were both controlled by Democrats. He only wants the issue as a way to stir up Republicans.

  25. DeniseVB says:

    Meanwhile, Mia Farrow picks her 2016 Dream Team …..

    • fif says:

      Yea, like that ticket has a snowflake’s chance in hell of securing the presidency. Hey Mia, electoral politics, every heard of it?

    Brat’s Build a book Christmas present arrived today. I ordered it on Friday. Thank hey zoos I didn’t pay for one day shipping. I possess no restraint. Gave it to her. Very cute idea. She writes and illustrates a twenty page story. You mail it in(postage paid envelope included) they mail you back a bound book. 24 and change. I think it is a great way to spend a creative couple of hours with a kid. I thought I would have the chance to discuss story structure. Nope she used denouement on me and said a short story is like a three act play. I will beat her for that. Anyhow I think it is a great gift. Barnes & Noble also has a master’s set. Kid can replicate the classics. Comes with the material to make two copies. Rug rat did Starry Starry night sunburnt lilac and grey. Have to say it is effective. Less than thirty.

    • Somebody says:

      You might like the Create-A-Story board game Tim, check it out. There are some other ones too like Rory’s story cubes and You’ve Been Sentenced. Perhaps one of those could make it under the tree.

      • mothy6767 says:

        Will do. When she was a pup we always had craft Tuesday’s. We did nothing profound. Just spent a few hours making stuff. I feel it was a huge investment that paid off in spades.we created some scary paper mache piggy banks but we spent time together. Costs nothing to make a bank. Flour water and a balloon.the time spent is what matters. So may parents cry I cannot afford. Bullshit library has something every week. Kids are about the time. Ben Carlson has said his mother did not know how to read but when he was a boy she pretended. The man is a brain doctor.
