Here’s a Hug Overnight Open Thread

I’m about 60 minutes from bedtime, so here’s another TCH overnight open thread where overnight lasts about 15 hours 😀

I sure would love we love our police and all the LEO’s that keep us safe, so sick of Oblahblahma’s racist sh*theads ….from March…No, it’s not getting better Bill….

    I’m moving my dream home from Waco,Tx to Merritt Island in Florida. What do you think?


    • DandyTIger says:

      Spent a few years working there. Great place.

      • DeniseVB says:

        ❤ I'm driving my husband crazy playing this zillow game. Downsizing isn't his favorite sport. 😉 A Florida move will definitely be on the Atlantic coast, I love the smell of ocean.

        • Somebody says:

          Check out Amelia Island, also you might like Palm Coast or St. Augustine.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Gorgeous places too!

            We have a condo in St Augustine on the beach! Well, it is actually in unincorporated St John’s county, and just over the bridge is St Augustine. Quaint little town (that gets a bit more crowded every year).

            Palm Coast has lots off issues with real estate reselling – even as the Florida market has heated up the last two years. While you can get an excellent deal in Palm Coast, be prepared for it to not appreciate.

            We looked up and down the east coast of Florida when went condo shopping. We went with St Augustine because we liked the small town, liked the lack of hurricanes in the region (even though we had to get hurricane windows when we replaced them in our condo), but most especially we liked that they allowed dogs on the beach. Always baffled me that cars were allowed on the beach on so much of the Atlantic side, but not dogs. If it is for the pooping mess… well where do they think the fish and birds go? My only thought is people letting dogs off the leash. I am sure there is a story behind it, I just don’t know it.

          • DeniseVB says:

            My son’s inlaws just sold their home in StA, too bad money is thicker than blood in our family, we couldn’t afford it 😉 Just a block off the beach, loved it but I think condo life is next for me, sick of maintaining a real house.

        • Myiq2xu™ says:

          Better love hurricanes too, and I ain’t talking about the Miami team.

          • DeniseVB says:

            That’s why this little piggy will live in a house made of cinder blocks 🙂 Pretty strict building codes now after Andrew and Hugo almost ripped Florida off the map. Nice thing about condo living, HOA’s cover exterior damages to their buildings. So I’m told.

          • Somebody says:

            Actually northeastern Florida doesn’t get many hurricanes. The coast curves inland and the gulf stream is pretty far off the coast from about Daytona Beach northward. Unfortunately that also means north Florida doesn’t have the beautiful blue waters that south Florida has.

            I’m not saying it’s impossible for a hurricane to strike, but the conditions have to be just right because the natural currents and wind patterns generally pull the storms past north Florida and slam them into the Carolinas. All you have to do is pull up some historical maps and you’ll see there aren’t a lot of direct strikes, last one was 1964 and the one before that was in the 1800’s.

            Beyond all of that, if you can’t get out of the way of a hurricane then perhaps you’re just too stupid to survive. Hurricanes don’t just pop up and strike (technically I guess that is possible but doesn’t happen). If you follow the weather you know for days if not weeks that a hurricane is on the way and approximately where it might strike. Hurricanes generally move pretty slowly, if they move 9 or 10 mph they’re clipping along. Any reasonable person can access their danger and take appropriate action. Whereas earthquakes and tornadoes strike with little to no warning. In the realm of natural disasters I’ll take a hurricane threat any day.

          Do you have an aversion to bugs 24/7 all year long?
          The Floridians call them palmetto bugs,…I call them cockroaches.
          In the PI, they were 4 inches long.
          We would douse them with lighter fluid and set them on fire.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Had an older cousin who lived there for many years and loved it.

    • taw46 says:

      I lived in Merritt Island for 15 yrs, until I retired and moved to the Keys. It is a beautiful place, right across the river from Cocoa Beach. Space center is there, so you can watch rocket launches. Orlando is about 45 minutes away.

      • DeniseVB says:

        How cool ! As long as they don’t launch rockets during my dh’s naps, that would make him cranky, heh. This is a good sign, so many TCHers with a link to Merritt Island and liked the area 😀 But the Keys! Truly a paradise lifestyle without leaving the mainland.

      • blowme0bama says:

        Hope we continue NASA’S muslim outreach after Trump gets in but include rocket launches.

    If I were an employer today, I would have to think long and hard about hiring a college grad today.
    Potted Plants have more sense

    Sigh, still true today from the 60’s, party on !

    Looks like we’re getting closer to #never Hillary.

    I posted this below in response to the concern trolling of Pence idiot Days has been doing. Repeating it here:

    Trump has shown singularity of purpose over the past year. Yes, he has made a few gaffes, but always with a consistent message and an eye on the “prize”. He’s bested all comers to this point (16!) despite millions upon millions of $$ and tens of thousands of hours of media spent to take him down. He destroyed Cruz and the nevertrumpers. He made “golden boys” Jeb! and Rubio irrelevant. He brought out the most Primary voters in history. The end result is he has only gotten stronger.

    They have tried everything and I do not believe Pence is going to be the straw that breaks the proverbial back. No matter who Trump chose for VP, you would see comments decrying the pick and saying “its over for Trump now!” Where have we heard that before?

    Me, I’m not tired of winning yet.

    These are always fun.

    Chachi Arcola was on Judge Jeaninem he is speaking at convention. He needs to embrace the grey. Looks too young to be 56.

  8. Venus says:

    Some truth on Pence:

    * Opposed TARP;
    * Opposed AIG and Goldman Sachs bailout criticizing the “Too Big To Fail” rationale behind it;
    * Critic of the Dodd-Frank law, which he said gives the administration the ability to pick favorites.

    “The extension of authority here to the Treasury, to the FDIC that allows them to pick winners and losers in the marketplace, that keeps alive this deeply flawed concept that some institutions are too big to fail,” said Pence. “You know, the idea of offering an implicit guarantee to certain financial organizations I think would be very damaging to regional and community banks… at the preference of large institutional investors on Wall Street.;

    * Endorsed privatizing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac;
    * When the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was just a legislative proposal, Pence objected to giving a new agency so much power saying
    “The bill allows bureaucrats to determine the types and terms of credit products offered to consumers, through the establishment of the so-called Consumer Financial Protection Agency. An unelected ‘credit czar’ would be empowered to dictate what financial products could be offered and at what terms, drastically reducing the number of financial products available and driving up the cost of credit generally, at a time when families and small businesses can least afford it,” added Pence. “Agencies need the ability to consider safety and soundness and consumer protection together to ensure that a balance is achieved and neither responsibility is neglected.”

    No wonder the establishment stooges don’t like him.

    Is that Chelsea chewing with her mouth open?

    • DeniseVB says:

      The Chili’s photo of the Pence family and the faux rage seems to be dominating the news this morning. At least it wasn’t a photo of them gorging themselves like the Clintons 😉

  11. Myiq2xu™ says:

    Seems fair.

    Great piece at PJ Media by Michael Walsh:

    Islamic military prowess is long in the past; the West has not suffered a major defeat in any confrontation with Islam on the battlefield since Saladin expelled the Crusaders from Jerusalem in 1187. But pitched battles between great armies are no longer the confrontation of choice. As Nice, Paris, Orlando, San Bernardino and everywhere else a “holy warrior” has self-detonated have shown, the war has come to the streets of western cities, unpredictable in its timing and ferocity. And yet still the West refuses to take even the most rudimentary steps to protect itself against a known, sworn enemy. Why?

    Lots of reasons: ennui, cultural Marxism, the mutation of the Left into a suicide cult that wants to take the rest of us with it. A loss of faith in organized religion (some of it brought on by the faiths themselves, or rather the imperfect men who represent and administer them). The transformation of government schools into babysitting services for subsections of the populace with severe cultural learning disabilities, no matter the skin color of the pupil. The marginalization of the very notion of excellence. And a political class that is little more than a collection of criminals, throne-sniffers, pantywaists and bum-kissers, all dedicated to their own enrichment.

    As I argued in The Devil’s Pleasure Palace — and will expand upon in the forthcoming companion volume, The Fiery Angel — the antidote to this is a return to our cultural roots, including the pre-Christian principles of Aristotle (passed down via St. Thomas Aquinas, among others) and the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. Those roots are neither race- nor faith-specific and in fact the genius of Western civilization is that its principles — not “conservative” principles but civilizational principles — have proven so successful that they resulted in the United States of America, the very embodiment of those ideas.

    Which is, of course, why Islam and its ally of convenience, the Left, hate America so. We and our cultural heritage are the refutation of every satanic principle they hold so vengefully dear.

    Western civilization has defended us for centuries. Isn’t it about time we defended it?

    You all better be careful what you say about Crooked. She has her trolls out looking.

    Hillary Clinton camp now paying online trolls to attack anyone who disparages her online

    This is frightening. Obama might be losing it. He is discussing here, the final goals of the globalist movement and he seems to be pushing it on us quickly because he knows his time is running out. Yikes!


    Globalist Obama: Terrorists, Racist Cops Are ‘Chronic Impulses’ to Be Defeated by Global Elites

    For Obama, everyone –jihadis and cops, Catholics and capitalists, atheists and Australians ­ must subordinate their political, religious and legal affiliations to the greater authority of a single globalist power.

    They can’t compete, fight, defend themselves, intermarry, argue, compromise on principles, form their own countries, convert their rivals, or even campaign for political gains, because then they’re just expressing primitive supremacist “impulses” that must be suppressed by international organizations, according to Obama.
