    Loved House and Hugh Laurie ! It’s fun to read through imdb’s trivia …. didn’t realize the character was loosely based on Sherlock Holmes and other fun stuff πŸ™‚

    • John Denney says:

      Same actor as in the “Wooster and Jeeves” comedy series in the UK, which I recommend.

    • leslie says:

      Hugh Laurie is quite the talent. I have a CD of his called “Let Them Talk”. He plays piano and sings. There are some pretty blues-y tunes on it.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Hugh Laurie’s resume is frilliant on imdb. Mothy should be proud he reminds someone of him. πŸ˜‰

      • taw46 says:

        I love that song, Let Them Talk. Here in the Keys, there is a man who sang at all the old clubs in KW, he is now 84 yrs old. That was his wife’s favorite song, so of course he sang it all the time. He has twice been “pulled out of retirement” to perform since I have been down here. I am lucky to have heard him, the amazing Coffee Butler.

        I found Hugh Laurie on youtube, so will listen to him.

    If you haven’t yet, everybody go back and read the last thread…..lots of good stuff in the comments. Orchestrated attempt to take Trump out, Jim Webb may be back in the race, coordinated article popping up about Trump… Rubio wants a brokered convention.

    • Somebody says:

      Ouch that should leave a mark……but his supporters seem pretty committed so maybe not.

      • Somebody says:

        It’s true though, the claims. We do have government run health care in the US, it’s called the VA. We also have social insurance with Medicare and Medicaid. Anyone only need look at those programs to get an idea of what either type of system might look like here in the US. Those are pretty much apple to apple comparisons, as opposed to how things are done in this or that country.

        To be fair, I guess an exception would be prescription drugs. I assume under a government program we’d negotiate??? Who knows maybe not pharma lobby is pretty strong…..other than drugs the comparisons stand.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think Bernies supporters are more Hillary haters than for Bernie. Oh, and all that Free Sh*t πŸ˜€

    • cynic says:

      Excellent. My SIL’s mother works for a world-wide corporation and spends a great deal of time traveling to all corners of the world.

      She told me that in Europe, the waiting lines are so long, that the one’s that can afford another health insurance policy, on top of what they have thru the govt. are purchasing them. No more long lines for those with money.

      • Jadzia says:

        I suspect that really depends on the country and location. I’ve heard about lines and such for the NHS in Britain. Here, I’ve experienced none of that, nor has anybody in our extended family (which includes elderly people, people who have had various illnesses, etc; we contain multitudes). People do buy supplementary private insurance policies (ours is provided by my husband’s employer and I think I might get one too; for us it would’ve been about 200/month on the open market), but the stuff that they cover includes co-pays, private maternity hospital (not worth the extra money), and the big hole in our public system: vision and dental. (I paid hundreds, HUNDREDS of euros for glasses last year before we had the mutuelle. My husband paid about 50.)

        Rural health care is the big problem here, as in many places in the world. When we lived in the country, we had an AMAZING country doctor, the kind who would come to your house. She worked herself into a nervous breakdown, and the town then had a rotating crew of just out of med school temps, who were all very competent but had NO plans to make a career out in the middle of BFN. It was like Northern Exposure en francais. No bueno.

        The only places I’ve seen here that are really “private pay” are, um, cosmetic surgeons. Although that might be different in Paris–I think the American Hospital is more private/private? It’s supposed to be good, but I’m not sure if it’s private-pay worth of good.

    • DeniseVB says:

      If you want free medical and school, join the military ! In fact my niece is enjoying her free college after just a few years in the Coast Guard. As an extra bonus, they gave her 2 years worth of credit for her CG training and she started school as a junior. Kids today have no clue and I doubt many would survive any military training.

    • lizzy says:

      I think Bernie is auditioning for Don Quixote. He seems always tilting at those Wall Street windmills.

  4. dm says:

    I feel as though I have no where to go if the GOPe runs Rubio/Bush down my voting throat. I despised Obama so much, I went to the other side – grudgingly. Clinton got the shaft that go round. Now, there is no democrat I want to see elected and most of the Repubs same way. This is the first time in my life that I have been seriously considering staying home and not casting a vote – which, in essence is casting a vote – just for the “other” side. I am 60 years old, my kids are supporting a socialist, the party elites just want more of the same so everyone can line their pockets and ensure their power position. Where did it get so crazy? Nevermind, I know. It’s always been this way – I just wasn’t paying close enough attention.

    • cynic says:

      I’m right there with you, then I remember, who would I want choosing to replace a Supreme Court Justice? They could replace several of them. That’s why we vote.

      • dm says:

        good point…please, keep reminding me…I get lost in the fog of despair and disappointment over a government that is no longer for the people, by the people.

        • cynic says:

          Maybe that’s why the GOPe is pushing Rubio. He’s their robot and will do their bidding.

          • DeniseVB says:

            The GOPe has certainly done Obama’s bidding these past few years while successfully neutering the reps the Tea Party sent to DC. I really hate both parties’ establishment leaders, they’re sucking the life out of our country.

          • lyn says:

            ^This^ Both created this political vacuum, and now they blame the voters for rising up.

    • votermom says:

      GOP might try but Trump’ s got an army of supporters who will bring out the pitchforks to defend him.

    • John Denney says:

      dm, you make the Tea Party’s case for smaller Federal government. That way whoever gets elected has less power to inflict damage on us.

      What makes a country prosper? When its people prosper. What makes a person prosper? The Four Pillars of Personal Prosperity:
      1) Can do attitude
      2) Diligence
      3) Continuous Learning
      4) Trustworthiness, rooted in love for one’s fellow man.

      These can be given to no one, only encouraged, and their opposites discouraged. They apply regardless of age, gender, or race.

      The government’s job? The main job of the government (We the People) is to defend each person’s Life, Liberty, and Property. Sometimes that requires force of arms.

      Meanwhile, looks like Obama’s former SecTreasury is about to cash in …. didn’t Martha Stewart go to jail for less?

      • cynic says:

        Reading this stuff makes my head explode. Since he was appointed by Obama, let’s see how much press this gets.

        Quite the read there. Here’s a little ditty:
        Geithner also failed to execute the government’s plan for mortgage relief to individuals in order to shelter the banks from losses, one of the reasons Barofsky titled his book Bailout: An Inside Account of How Washington Abandoned Main Street While Rescuing Wall Street.

        Even before he joined the Obama administration, Geithner, as president of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, was part of the triumvirate along with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson who designed the bailout program that saved the banks – as well as the jobs and bonuses of most bank executives.

    Interesting. πŸ™‚

    • DeniseVB says:

      It’s over an hour long, but enjoyed the first 6 minutes ! Have it bookmarked to finish later. Thanks for posting foxy! I especially enjoyed that he’s been in the media longer than most of the media has been breathing πŸ˜€

  7. cynic says:

    My girlfriend from TX called me yesterday, and was interested in my take on the election. She knew that at one time I was very active, and wondered what I thought of Trump. I don’t know why I can’t come out and proudly say that I’m backing him. I guess it’s my Midwest, Catholic upbringing. I cringe at some of Trump’s comments. I just say that I’m tired of the establishment, saw first-hand the dirty politicking, and that it’s time to shake things up. I also said he’s following his own advice from his book, and it’s working.

    Anyway, she told me that Kasich’s 1st wife is a friend/neighbor of hers. She had forgotten that info until the woman went on f/b to tell them that she wished him luck in his campaign. They married young, and had no children. That’s all the info I have.

    Interesting that he came in second, and I know so little about him.

    • taw46 says:

      Same here with my Southern, Baptist upbringing. Do I wish he would not say some of those things? Yes, but I will still vote for him. There has to be good there. By all accounts, he has raised wonderful children. And I still haven’t heard people who work (or worked) for him come out with negatives about him. Besides, the more the GOPe and the media come out against him, the more I am determined to vote for him. They certainly don’t have my best interests at heart. (My first choice was Cruz, and if he were the nominee, I think I would still vote for him. Just not as enthusiastic as I would have at one time.)

      • taw46 says:

        What I mean, is my Southern upbringing says you don’t say those things in a public format. But times have changed, haven’t they? The words themselves do not offend me.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Kasich seems like a nice guy, just doesn’t give me tingles. Same with Jeb! I like to think revolution more than an election. None of the candidates are perfect, so I’m going with the guy who’s good at smashing heads, making deals and hated by both parties πŸ˜‰

    • elliesmom says:

      Since everyone I declare my support for ends up on the chopping block, I’m being very circumspect about announcing my intentions in the voting booth. The only commitment I will make is that I will vote. I have in the past done a write-in for Harry Truman. He was president when I was born, and it’s my editorial comment when I can’t bring myself to vote for either candidate.

    • Jadzia says:

      I have that VERY SAME discomfort with Trump’s, um, “brash” style. Midwestern, Catholic, and nice, RIGHT HERE.

  8. DeniseVB says:

    MOTUS is a great read today, stop by if you have the chance. I missed Carly’s suspension comments, I’m going to miss her ….

    Carly dropped out of the Presidential sweepstakes yesterday with this message:

    To young girls and women across the country, I say: do not let others define you. Do not listen to anyone who says you have to vote a certain way or for a certain candidate because you’re a woman. That is not feminism. Feminism doesn’t shut down conversations or threaten women. It is not about ideology. It is not a weapon to wield against your political opponent. A feminist is a woman who lives the life she chooses and uses all her God-given gifts. And always remember that a leader is not born, but made. Choose leadership.

    This was sort of aimed at Hillary and Madeline, ya think? πŸ˜‰

    • nerdle says:

      Bernie Sanders is selling the same bill of goods that Obama did in ’08 and young adults are still eating it up. I really don’t get it.

      The youth vote was practically militant in its support for Obama and it’s repeating with Sanders.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Says a lot about our education system too. What’s scary, the kids voting for the first time this election were only 10 years old when Obama was elected. That’s a lot of brain washing during those formative years.

  9. mothy67, says:

    It is very special to me that you opened this with fucking House. I hope a I am better looking although I find him sexy. My sister has cancerand we rarely talk because I raised her grandkid and she is a mom she’ll stand by her kid. I love her. We are a year apart. I was honest with her. Her son is borderline. He beat a little girl i public and called her stupid. Hard to deal with my sister. She had a brain tumor and lung cancer. I told her I had some involuntary drive, emotion to care about her and be there but I will not sacrifice the child.
    Never, her son is a bad guy. I love my sister more than anyone, but I will not throw away a littles girls life because dumb ass went and got a brain tumer. I t was benign – I told her it starved to death. She laughed but still treatment on lung. I said I find you the most annoying person on the planet. So easy to abuse cancer patients. She said why. But all kidding aside baby girl cannot be raised by a monster. He’s my son she said. I said can you forgive as you rot from cancer that I will fight to the death before I ever let him hit her again. She said I count on it from her deathbed. She will never die.. We are thin people. She was like 1500 pounds one day in the hospital I got there after my brothers and everyone was holding back tears. I said my god you are fat. She wasn’t really 1500 pounds but fat. I climbed in her bed and ordered what she was having. All of my brothers teir wives we all sitting around her bed like she was already dead. I climbed into her bed and complained I could taste no alcohol in the jello. There was no jello but it seemed like the best complaint. My family was appalled but my sister laughe and said god you are an ass. She is still going strong. Funny my siblings close to me in age have always provided for me. I lived in many places. They crossed the street to visit me. My brother has been in NY a n d London to see me. Same with my sister. I am refreshed by Trump because I want some tool at the NYT to tell me what “xenophobic” means. Kiss my ass that term is so absurd. Let’s say I am a lower middle class white guy that married his high school sweetheart. We have three kids bit I’m not sure she’s the mother. We have jobs I’m a waitress and she works at the Piggly Wiggly. We know we suck but life is tough moving our trailor but once a week. Since they stopped the denture trade in times are tough. Times were nice before they started do those damned implants. Hard to sell a good tooth today. Pathetic that poor white people can be humilated


    • Somebody says:

      Glad you made peace with your sister Tim, sounds like in her heart she knows what is best too.

      As for the rest of your comment, I’m perplexed how is it possible to not be sure who the mother of your child is??

      Perhaps there was some alcohol in the jello and you had a wee bit too much!

      • mothy67, says:

        I am an asshole. The not knowing who the mother was was just me entertaing myself. But yes it is nice to know that my sister understands that i understand that it is her son but I will never let my brat be beaten in public again. No way. My sister was always considered the less smart one, but nothing touched me more than her thinking I’m an asshole. My baby sister watched House once a week and thought of me. Ascerbic asshole.

  10. DandyTIger says:

    SJW’s/Feminists want to police and control how you talk to computers. Seriously.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Well that’s going to ruin future Big Bang Theory storylines (like when Raj had a relationship with “Siri” or Howard’s invention, the robotic hand). πŸ˜€

    • leslie says:

      They really spend way too much time being stupid. What was that movie last year about being in love with your personal computer friend? Yeah, yeah, yeah it was called “Her”. I suppose that’s a microaggression now.
      Annnd my spell check just froze on “microaggression”. At least my spell check demos independent thought. Unlike SJW’s

  13. AFVet says:

    John Kasich is a shyster.
    He ran a strict conservative campaign in Ohio to get elected after Ted Strickland took us into debt.
    He did get us back out of the red, but made us reliant on the fed.
    Kasich said he was going to stick to Ohio’s Constitution which states that our property taxes cannot be used to fund the school system.
    So far, since we elected him, the school tax within our property tax has increased by at least 30%.
    He is also pro common core.

    Don’t believe what he says.
    I have seen what he does.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Thanks, I see you got my message πŸ™‚

    • cynic says:

      Thank you for that information. I haven’t really heard anyone talking about him, but I suppose that’s because he always polled so low. it wasn’t until he took 2nd in NH that made me want to know more. I know that I had problems watching him during the debates, and I once saw him be interviewed by Mark Halprin, and he was shoveling food in his mouth non stop, and I just thought, eeew.

    • swanspirit says:

      My knee jerk response to Kasich is one of complete irritation and annoyance. I just want him to shut up and go away. Now I know why. Thanks AFVet

    • leslie says:

      Thank you! That was really helpful.
      The first time I saw Kasich in the debates, I got a really sick feeling… like “He’s really a Democrat. and he’s in the wrong debate.”

      • AFVet says:

        He made a statement in NH that he should have ran as a democrat.
        He is what we elected in 2014 that told us they were going to take on Obama and we all see what happened.

  14. gram krakka says:

    Just dropping by to congratulate the Trump fans on his NH victory. Wish I could join the discussions here more often, but family obligations usually keep me busy until late at night. Appreciate everybody’s comments and the links to interesting stuff.

  15. gram krakka says:

    Oh, one more thing. If you are thinking of giving chocolates to that special someone for Valentines day checkout the recipe for bacon-chocolate shot glasses. As my dearly departed hubby liked to say, “candy’s dandy, but liquor’s quicker”.

    • Dora says:

      I think that’s a good saying. I don’t like candy much anyway.

      I’m so sorry to hear about your husband. I really am. I don’t know him and I don’t know you, but to know that you are approaching Valentine’s Day without your ‘special someone’ brings tears to my eyes. 😦

  16. Myiq2xu says:

    Hillary is trying to simultaneously run as:

    1. Bill’s 3rd term
    2. Obama’s 3rd turn
    3. The “change” candidate

  17. DeniseVB says:

    Ruh-roh …. I’m wondering if Obama’s unleashed the dogs on Hillary? Should be an interesting debate tonight if they bother to ask her about it since these seem to be her only accomplishments πŸ˜‰

  18. AFVet says:

    Don’t forget Benghazi.

  19. lyn says:

    Saw that Rubio started attacking Trump, because Trump called him a vulgar term: “p****.” If that word is pussy, did Sarah Palin whine when vile progs called her the C word? If Rubio can’t take being called names, how can he be president? Asking for my pussy cats.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That’s great ! Have spent too much time today looking for the full meme as the viral version on twitter left off the first and last line in the crop. Full version is so much yummier. πŸ™‚

    • 1539days says:

      I just find it hilarious that Hillary is benefiting from the super delegate system that destroyed her campaign in 2008. Even better, Sanders supporters are so dumb they didn’t even know about them and are ready to riot over the unfairness of it all.

      • leslie says:

        Well, they are already kvetching about the unfairness that some people have LOTS of money and it ought to be redistributed among everyone.
        They are stupid. (my word of the day it seems.)

    • 1539days says:

      And Trump supporters have a large chuck of anti-Semetic twitter trolls. Guilt by association can affect anyone.

    • 1539days says:

      So, the pastor mentioned in the article actually supports Israel. However, the story is that he said God would strike down Jews who didn’t convert to Christianity in the End Times. So, the anti-Jewish remarks are about when happens when Jesus comes back to earth, which isn’t going to happen soon (or at all for the non-Christians out there). If it were part of the Ted Cruz platform, I’d be more worried, but if this guy is one of hundreds of pastors who have only endorsed Cruz but has not been tapped by the campaign team, it seems like a bit of a nothingburger.

  24. DeniseVB says:

    It’s official, Frank Luntz is in the slobber bucket for Ted Cruz. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but he should stop with his focus group crap.

    • DeniseVB says:

      OK, couldn’t help it, thanks liquid potatoes πŸ˜‰

      • 1539days says:

        Yes, political kids. He never said child ACTORS can’t be in ads. That ad is funny.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Nah, I had two under four with me stumping for Carter, they had no clue mommy couldn’t find a babysitter that day, but the San Diego media loved them and our stroller all decked out in Feeling the Lust In Our Hearts stickers πŸ˜‰ So I doubt the kids used in the Ted ad had a clue either while they were destroying that building. Looked like fun!

          • 1539days says:

            I’m watching it and I’m thinking how Trump supporters will try to “fact check” the eminent domain thing at the end. But it would be like fact checking an SNL skit. Legal Insurrection posted the ad and wondered if mockery of Trump is the kind of fighting fire with fire that will work.

          • elliesmom says:

            Mockery of Trump will just get mockery returned times two. The only way to take Trump down is to give his supporters a better choice.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Days…I follow NYC real estate blogs, and it saddens me to see the smashing of historic neighborhoods and businesses being turned into slumlord buildings, and not from our country. And, yes, I’m still pissed at Fred Trump, Donald’s dad, for destroying Coney Island.

        • Venus says:

          Of course your little brain, coupled with your ignorance of emmiment domain, would find that ad funny.

          Here’s a clue, douchecanoe: every single candidate has the exact same position on emminent domain as Trump. Furthermore, emminent domain is not an issue in a national election — only a complete and total idiot would think it was. Sadly, there are a lot of you out there.

      • lurker says:

        Didn’t that house get sold to Icahn for way less than what was offered?

          Oh come on now lurker don’t interject facts.
          1539 it’s super easy to fact check the eminent domain story.

    • Somebody says:

      Don’t let Frankie fool you Denise, he has a man crush on Teh Rubes. In fact he’s a paid consultant for the stepford senator, think about that the next time you see one of his focus groups. He just got the memo to take Trump down so he’s doing his part and leaving his golden boy out of the mix……you know clean and untouched… he can “rise above it all” and come in and save the day.

    • leslie says:

      IIRC, Luntz had Cruz appear at one of his focus groups. Then asked the focus group who they would prefer (Trump or Cruz) after the face-to-face meeting with Cruz. He tyhen turned around and used that focus group in a “report” on one of the cable news stations.

  25. cynic says:

    While I was in the kitchen baking cookies, I was listening to MSNBC. I heard one comment that made my ears perk up, and unfortunately, I can’t say for sure who said it. I think it was an interview with Al Sharpton, and they were discussing the meeting that he had with Bernie yesterday. He said that he would be meeting with Hillary as well.

    The PTB in the Al Sharpton group want to know who Bernie would be appointing for the Attorney General, etc. I immediately thought of Holder and the Black Panther/polling incident in Philadelphia, and now Loretta Lynch suing Ferguson, MO.

    Then I came across this article today, and it once again reminds me how important it is to go out and vote, even though we don’t like the candidate. I can’t imagine radical Bernie having the ability to appoint judges as well, and I remember when the BLM group joined him on stage. He will be a push-over. Then I see DeRay’s picture up above, and wonder who Bernie would have visiting the White House. (It’s not about race, it’s about radicals) I’ve read a bit about Bernie over at Uppity’s, and look forward to learning more about him. He could be the next president if we don’t vote.

    Cruz booed at Defense of Christians dinner. Know your audience dude.

    • 1539days says:

      That audience was Muslims. Cruz tried to give them the benefit of the doubt and walked out when they didn’t want to support Israel. I consider that a positive.

      • lurker says:


        • 1539days says:

          Sorry. I meant they were from the Middle East. In other words, what Trump would consider a Muslim.

          • lurker says:

            Trump’s waterboarding response indicates he knows about Christians in the ME.

          • Venus says:

            You didn’t mean they were from the middle east — you were wrong like you always fucking are.
            And you threw in a fucking dishonest lie about Trump because you’re too much of a fucking asshole to admit you were wrong.

      • AFVet says:

        I agree.
        He realized that the crowd was not listening and he walked out.

      • leslie says:

        Actually, it was a group of Christians who were meeting to discuss the attacks on and killings of Christians in the ME. when Cruz began to include the attacks against Israel with the same concern, some in his audience began to boo him. He then commented on the “hatred” shown by some members of the audience after his mention of Israel. And he subsequently left the conference.

        “Cruz’s talk was supposed to have been, β€œReligious Freedom and Human Dignity: Religious Persecution of Christians, Unity with the Persecuted Church.” Obviously, he went off script. Our goal for the summit was to achieve a sense of unity among the many hundreds of Middle Eastern Christians who attended. In an unexpected way, Cruz helped the summit to achieve this, but it would’ve been better had he not spoken β€” especially for those who had to return to the Middle East. Still, the outpouring from our Middle Eastern Christian brothers and sisters has been overwhelmingly positive. The summit was historic and a huge success from start to finish.

      “Glenn? This is Donald Trump. I will give you $1 million to publicly denounce me. Say whatever you want about me, as long as it’s bad.”

        Glenn is the best thing that could have happened for Trump. Well, that and Cruz speaking in tongues. How on earth anyone could think Cruz could win in the general is beyond me.

    Trump and eminent domain.

    John Stossel actually interviewed Trump at the time and points out a few things in his editorial.

    1. The owner of the house was offered up to 1.25 million to sell her house, but refused.
    2. Trump (who donates to NY politicians like Hillary Clinton) suddenly found that a state agency condemned the house and was willing to sell it to Trump. The owner would get $250,000.
    3. What no one but Stossel mentioned is that Trump did not get the house because a court overturned the decision. The parking lot was never built, mostly because it was another one of those bankruptcies that Trump has nothing to do with.

    Some complete and total liar was posting the other night that “Trump doesn’t do well with independents.”


    [E]xit polls in the party’s center-right New Hampshire base revealed no obvious weaknesses for Trump. He won voters across age groups, income levels, gender, marital status and ideologies; he even won independents. National polls say Trump is dominating among self-identified moderate Republicans, the group that the establishment-friendly candidates are also gunning for.

    I love the desperation with the eminent domain spiel. Trump tried to supplant a woman. Cruz supports expanding H1B visas putting hundreds of thousands of Americans out of work. The visas lower wages for competing Americans. Such a scam. Emphasis on this house is going to bite Cruz in the ass. The ads write themselves.

      Wow Tim…..BAM, if eminent domain comes up in the debate that would be an excellent come back. Trump could calmly state that he didn’t take the house, in fact Vera Cokling kept her house, then point out that everybody else on that stage supports H1Bs and most support massive increases in H1Bs.

      That’s a good way to turn things around and highlight a major weakness the other candidates have…….he’d have to check on Kasich and Jeb’s statements on H1Bs. Marco and Cruz have a paper trail of support and expansion. That would be an especially good argument at the SC debate. Rock Hill and areas around are basically bedroom communities to Charlotte, NC. Charlotte has a lot of tech and I can assure you more and more H1Bs every year.
