    myiq, do you have the TCH header on a slideshow or just playing with us ? 😉 This could be a new theme, if Anthony can photoshop tiny little MAGA hats on the guys on the swamp boat …….

    So, I was thinking. If Trump fired Comey a few weeks ago, what would Democrats have done? My guess is that they would have used it as an excuse to claim an imperial presidency and filibuster the CR in the Senate. Instead, they went allowed the budget to pass and crowed about how they won.

    Except now, the administration got rid of a nuisance and the Democrats won’t be able to “shut down the government” for months now. So, who won the battle?

      Can you imagine nancy, maxine, mcshame and a few others at brunch after a few mimosas? They are not well. They always remind me of someone mixing booze and pills.

      I tried, Helen, but I cannot watch or listen to her. I made it to the 1:30 mark and couldn’t take any more. I don’t care what kind of pretzels they are twisting themselves into. They’ll have to do it without my listening to them. I know who they are and what they are and how they dissemble and put party before country.
      But I’m grateful that you found this clip and that you posted it here. ❤

      • mothy67 says:

        She repeats/rephrases every question before answering. What is that?

        • lateblum says:

          In my book it’s a time killer. Are you thinking of echolalia?

          • mothy67 says:

            Maybe. She does it all the time. Nearly every question. I only know of the symptom like I know some people eat their eyebrows. No knowledge of psych.

          • lateblum says:

            It may be the way she focuses on the question she’s been asked. Some people do that just to acknowledge to the other person that they heard what they said.

          • mothy67 says:

            She’s been in office since Noah built an ark. You would think she would hone some skills or stay off national tv.
            Off topic watching You are Wanted on Amazon its a german original series released on March 17 and they are talking about Antifa. I only recently heard of the group. Is it something that his been already in Germany?

          • lateblum says:

            You’re right about Maxine. I don’t know about Antifa except that it’s the short version of Anti-Fascist.

    • lateblum says:

      I must say though, the photo of Maxine with her mouth WIDE OPEN is one that sets the tone for the entire piece. Well at least of what I saw. She looks as though she could, by herself, swallow an entire ocean liner and have room for more.

    when mccain made these comments he was talking to foreigners and Americans.
    It is way past time for him to retire and go home. He has stayed too long at the fair

  6. Anybody seen Somebody recently?

    • Somebody says:

      I’m around popped on and off, my eldest daughter is visiting. We went to a festival this weekend and took a lovely day trip with the girls Monday. Sadly, my mom had a “cardiac event” last night. She’s OK in hospital, been there all day, just got home, out to dinner with hubby for 35th anniversary. They are doing a catheter on mom tomorrow, then we’ll know better what is what.

      I’ll pop back on a little later tonight and I’ll have my phone just sitting in a waiting room tomorrow. I feel kind of bad my daughter is babysitting on her vacation.

      • mothy67 says:

        Hopes and prayers for your mom.
        When I was a wee lad they would show me my catheterization films. I was 9, I thought they shoved a movie camera in my thigh.

      • swanspirit says:

        Sending lots of healing to your mom, glad she is OK.

      • votermom says:

        Prayers for your Mom.

      • helenk3 says:

        Hope your mom is ok. prayers for all of your family

      • lyn says:

        Prayers for your mother and you. ❤

      • Somebody says:

        Thanks guys, I think my mom is going to be OK. They’ll find out tomorrow what is going on. All indications are she didn’t have a heart attack, although she had all the textbook symptoms, but her labs and EKG do not indicate a heart attack. She already has stents, so they’re doing the catheter tomorrow morning to take a look and see what is going on. She had all the symptoms of a heart attack and she dramatically improved when they put a nitroglycerin patch on her, but the only odd thing was a slight abnormality in her T-waves on the EKG???

        Mom didn’t want to go to any of the big hospitals downtown, so my sister took her to a smaller community hospital. That ER doctor was going to release her with orders to follow up with her cardiologist today. However he called the cardiologist before he released mom from the ER. Mom’s cardiologist told him to start a couple of specific IV’s and transport mom by ambulance immmediately to the big hospital where he practices (which btw is closer to mom’s house than the other hospital was……argh). According to my sister my mom complained the entire ambulance ride, LOL! She complained all flipping day today too, she…wants…to..go…home…NOW! They ran some more tests today, many of them repeats of tests done at the other hospital, plus a couple of additional ones. They said they can’t give a full diagnosis without the catheter which has been ordered for 6am tomorrow.

        I’m off to bed, long day ahead for me tomorrow again.

        • My Mom is a lousy patient too. Thoughts and prayers for you and yours.

        • Jadzia says:

          I hope she gets better soon.

        • mcnorman says:

          I hope she gets better soon. The “events” certainly take a toll on everyone.

        • Underwhelmed says:

          Prayers to you and your mother.

        • lateblum says:

          {{{Somebody}}} I’m sorry to hear of your mom’s “event” yesterday. From what you wrote, it sounds as though the doc has a good plan thus far. My dad was just like your mom… complained a lot whenever he was in the hospital. It was when he didn’t complain that I worried. I hope she’ll be just fine in the end. I’ll be thinking of you, your family, and your mom.
          Isn’t it just good luck that your daughter is home to be a part of this? And to free you up a little bit as well. It may be an interruption to her vacation, but I’m guessing she’d rather be there with you all, than to have to make an extra trip home. And the girls have a new playmate!
          What a way to celebrate your anniversary. Hope it was at least a happy dinner for you and Mr Somebody.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        And here I was thinking you and your daughter were concocting more blueberry cocktails.

        Sorry to hear you have been dealing with your moms unexpected health events . Thinking of you and hoping all goes as well as possible.

      • Island Girl says:

        Happy 35th anniversary!

    • mothy67 says:

      I just looked through little bell thingy as I knew she had responded to me and I checked the date. It was May 3rd. She said her daughter was visiting for 10 days. So lets hope she is getting to relax and enjoy her family. Not sure when her daughter was coming and I know I read posts after that.

    Wouldn’t it be amazing if Sessions went after soros. Freeze all his assets and lock him up with M13 scum. He has played with literally billions of lives. He has cost many lives.

  9. helenk3 says:

    since Trump became president, I have said F–k you more that I ever did in my life. Every time a democrat comes on tv and starts spouting their nonsensical BS I scream FU and stop listening to them. I used to listen to both sides of an argument and make my own decisions. Now they are just so sickening i can not even listen to them.
    I thought they were bad in 2008, but they have become much worse since then. They are a waste of space in DC. Not working for the American people,just party hacks.

    end of rant for now

    • swanspirit says:

      They don’t make rational arguments. They deserve all the fuck yous they get.

    • jenlyn says:

      Absolutely perfect summation of how I feel and I think many feel it’s almost to the point of idiocy times a billion either that or they’re almost cry. It’s scary there’s not one rational truthful decent person in the Democratic party not one because if there were they would defect and come clean and I think you can almost say that about 99% of the media I mean this is an embarrassment it’s beyond an embarrassment it’s scary but they’re not I mean it’s not even that they’re not making Lucy points it’s the talking nonsense anyway I agree with every word you said I can’t watch it not at all without literally cringing there’s not only you can’t they’re not I mean it’s not even that they’re not making Lucid points it’s the talking

    • Island Girl says:

      I even say/think it to people I love lately, it is just crazy. Attitude deluxe!

    There is a celebration of diversity at my local library next weekend. I guess diversity means shut up you are white. I mean seriously how dumb do they think we are. These “refugees” all own small businesses. How if you are a refugee do you get a house, an SUV and a small business exempt from taxes for 7 years. My town is not affluent. We struggle. I think about college all the time. They get free. Flyer from YMCA said its great after school education your child will learn to value diversity.
    What does that mean? Everything about this is so unnatural. Forced. I keep seeing we value diversity. They place everything on skin tone or that pieces religion. I value ability or kindness humor even anger. I don’t like or dislike a skin hue. I do not like islam at all. Will make no apologies.
    I am so sick of hearing about that religion everyday. It is everyday. No way in hell that mass murderer ended up behind hillary by chance. No way. The odds are impossible.

  11. “Allentown”

    Well we’re living here in Allentown
    And they’re closing all the factories down
    Out in Bethlehem they’re killing time
    Filling out forms
    Standing in line
    Well our fathers fought the Second World War
    Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore
    Met our mothers in the USO
    Asked them to dance
    Danced with them slow
    And we’re living here in Allentown

    But the restlessness was handed down
    And it’s getting very hard to stay

    Well we’re waiting here in Allentown
    For the Pennsylvania we never found
    For the promises our teachers gave
    If we worked hard
    If we behaved
    So the graduations hang on the wall
    But they never really helped us at all
    No they never taught us what was real
    Iron and coal
    And chromium steel
    And we’re waiting here in Allentown

    But they’ve taken all the coal from the ground
    And the union people crawled away

    Every child had a pretty good shot
    To get at least as far as their old man got
    But something happened on the way to that place
    They threw an American flag in our face

    Well I’m living here in Allentown
    And it’s hard to keep a good man down
    But I won’t be getting up today

    And it’s getting very hard to stay
    And we’re living here in Allentown

  12. Who said it?

    When the doctrine of allegiance to party can utterly up-end a man’s moral constitution and make a temporary fool of him besides, what excuse are you going to offer for preaching it, teaching it, extending it, perpetuating it? Shall you say, the best good of the country demands allegiance to party? Shall you also say it demands that a man kick his truth and his conscience into the gutter, and become a mouthing lunatic, besides?

    I just want to remind everyone what a vile puke Ezekiel Emanuel is. My dad worked from 15 until 64. He has medicare and additional insurance. The death panel came to visit when he was in a coma that they induced. My mom can be the C word. They wanted to pull the plug. My dad had round the clock protection from his sons. He paid his insurance- private on top of Medicare. It’s May he goes to the gym everyday and he is still coaching pup’s softball. I cut the grass but he did the weed whacker.
    Ezekiel said let’s kill off old people. My dad fought and this little girl that calls him pap came back for her. Emanuel said lets 86 em. They cost too much but every illegal can drop a baby anywhere. He will never worry.

  14. helenk3 says:

    why is no one talking about the fact that the firing of comey had nothing to do with the “russian question” but more to do with his covering for those who did the “unmasking”?
    just wondering

  15. Jadzia says:

    This is turning into a really entertaining clusterfuck, especially given that there are no consequences for anybody except for the douchebag at the center of it. Remember Hollande’s prime minister, Valls, who announced that he was running for the legislature as a candidate for the totally-not-a-socialist-Trojan-horse Macron party? Well, the Socialists are throwing him out of the SP, and now Macron (sorry, I mean his “party,” which is totally real and not astroturfed at all) is basically saying that he doesn’t want Valls, either. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy!

    • CiscoKid says:

      Well, I’ve been thrown out of a lot worse places. Valls will get over it, I did.

      • Jadzia says:

        Ha ha, he should tell them that. The whole thing is very sketchy. I don’t really believe that an experienced politician like Valls would just switch parties without MENTIONING it in advance to the folks in the new party. I don’t think that happened. But I can’t figure out anybody’s motivations here.

    Kid wants me to go to her spring concert tonight. I said I was not going. I bought my mom a coffee system so she could give it as Mother’s day gift.
    200 should get me off the hook.
    No. I am not well. They don’t know what it is. My waist will be 30″ on Monday and 45 on Friday. I retain water. They thought I had cirrhosis. Then kidney failure. Nope. I drink wine and pee.
    Thing is Its been going on for 5 years. I have nothing but sweats. Waist is 32. Yes I measured . I hate department stores. I do not drive so I have to go with my mom. 50 years old going with my mom to macy’s. I want 501’s a nice tee and a medium blue shirt. I have jackets. I’ll brush my hair even get a haircut. She will say all the other gays are neat why can’t you be?
    I will just walk around Macy’s as a zombie. All I have done for kid in 10 years will mean nothing if I can’t get through Macy’s with my mom. I will be on death row that’s a joke. Sort of she may kill me.
    I may pay her to sit in the car. Just let me go in and out. She can walk for days. Shoot me. I could probably just do laundry. Ugh I am centering outfit around 501s and a white tee.
    First world problems.
