    It’s a 4 day weekend here for lots of lucky city, state and federal employees. Just means another 3 nights of fireworks around the ‘hood. Ed Gillespie, running for Governor wants to make them LEGAL in Virginia. I can’t imagine how crazy it would become if these pyromaniacs actually had permission to try and blow our roof up. (The law’s only enforced if they succeed !).

    Hope ya’ll are having a nice summer time of it. ❤

    • 1539days says:

      Bah! It is my God-given right as an American to blow shit up.

      This is my first year to do it legally.

    • Ann says:

      NYS finally allowed fireworks sales in 2014. This was the first year I actually saw stores and tents selling fireworks (and they are EVERYWHERE, like locus) – that was because it was an opt-in by the counties.

      The big losers? Pennsylvania and Ontario.

      • 1539days says:

        As a kid, my uncle used to come to my house (we lived in the outskirts) with these little popper fireworks which were illegal. I thought they were from Canada but I also heard PA.

        • Ann says:

          Yeah, remember the mess on the Peace Bridge back in the day with people smuggling over fireworks on the July 4th weekend? Apparently, forethought wasn’t big in NYS… I always wondered why they didn’t buy them in May or June when customs wasn’t stopping every other car and the lines were not miles long to cross back to the US.

          My grandparents always brought home sparklers from Ohio. We loved waving those 1000+ degree little heat wands. (What were they thinking handing those to a kid!?)

    • Constance says:

      I love the Fireworks! I also hate the Progressive Nanny state and all their behavior regulation. I’m actually surprised Progressives haven’t legalized all fireworks so they could tax the hell out of them.

      • DeniseVB says:

        We used to do an annual fireworks 4th of July party for several years when we moved into our first lakefront home. Friends from work, neighbors, their kids, fellow pyromaniacs who’d chip in for the $800+ for a super order from Phantom Fireworks in Ohio. They built a metal launch pad on our pier, so it never burned down 😉 Then one year, we got sued. Bigly.

        It was a nuisance suit, since the bitch complained of headaches and nightmares since attending one of our parties…..3 years earlier. Lucky Lawyer representing her found the “illegal fireworks” clause in VA and pushed forward. For 300k. Our homeowners insurance said so sad, too bad about that “illegal” sh*t clause. They did find she had many *pending* lawsuits and wouldn’t provide them medical records, we got lucky, didn’t have to pay a dime. Lucky Lawyer did get his fee paid, bitch, Zero. All because of “illegal”.

    they have not figured out yet, Trump is a street fighter. he brings the whole arsenal to a fight

    • swanspirit says:

      Even if he didn’t do it intentionally, and I would never rule that out given his blatant disregard for any law, rule or regulation he didn’t like; I believe he felt any money he could skim off to people he felt deserved “reparations” was fine with him.

  11. helenk3 says:

    I posted this link the other day here and on facebook, in the trey gowdy site it got over 1000 likes and reaction and 190 shares.


    • helenk3 says:

      on the Tucker site it got over 450 reactions and over 100 shares

      people seem to like the idea

    • DeniseVB says:

      Makes sense to me. The Trump is finding billions in mismanaged funds in all the agencies (I think 9 billion alone for the free cell phone to poor people ended up in more private bank accounts that put phones in their hands). Imagine if we could scoop up all those trillions, we could build walls on the south and north borders !

  12. DeniseVB says:

    About that 25th Ammendment thing the Dems are hoping will toss Trump out of office.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Apparently Dems what to abuse and ridicule the whole foundation of mental health and set us back decades in compassion and understanding in order to virtue signal.

      • AFVet says:

        Given the almost daily demonstrations of dem insanity, the audacity to accuse another of not being able to perform one’s duties is outrageous and a testament to their level of desperation to remove any impediment to their continued corruption.

    • swanspirit says:

      That’s MY GUY!!!! He was campaigning door to door all by himself, knocked on my door, I invited him in, and he sat in my kitchen and we had a nice long talk.
      He is really a good guy. He recently lost his wife, in 2014,very sad.

    • helenk3 says:

      the democrats are telling millions of legal voters in this country,” screw you, you did not vote the way we wanted and told you to do so. Your vote no longer counts.”
      you must follow the party line at all times

      • DeniseVB says:

        Yeah, most of us suffered that personally in 2008 while on the DKos and DU boards. Either you’re with us or the hell with you. Nice people, eh?

  13. helenk3 says:


    are they ever going to stop being color over country and think about what is best for All of America?

    • DeniseVB says:

      The Black Caucus is more troublesome than the Muslim Brotherhood, so anti-American.

    • 1539days says:

      I’m not big on the voter data thing, either. The commission asked for the states to send Social Security numbers over unsecured e-mail. I’m reminded of all the biographical data the Obama administration was trying to get with the 2010 census.

      • Somebody says:

        Sending via unsecured email not good. However, if they can figure out a secure way to transfer the data (if I can figure out multiple ways they can), I see no problem with the feds having voters SS#……..it is the feds that issued those numbers and oversees social security to begin with.

        Soooooo if the only issue the states have is transfer of data security that is an easy fix.

        • lyn says:

          OPM had no problem giving China SS#s of federal employees.

          • lyn says:

            … Obama’s OPM.

          • Somebody says:

            Don’t forget fingerprints and security files which includes all that information about your family members plus FBI files on all.

            But hey the O administration gave all the federal employees credit monitoring service from some cheap company, screw their family members. The service is soon good it managed to inform us about our house refinancing 2 months after the fact. It was probably owned by a crony buddy and the tax payers paid top dollar for crap.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Easily available if the commission strolled over to the IRS? Personally, I’d like to see some actual taxpayer and voter lists compared 😉 Voter registrations are bought by political groups for their mailing lists, as well as DMV records all the time.

        • 1539days says:

          And there are rules against the IRS handing over that information as well. I think we’re a lot better off working on laws at the state level to protect the integrity of voting rather than trying to data mine information from 135 million people.

          Even if it could be proved that 3 million votes were unverifiable, each state has autonomy in elections. If a state could pass it in their constitution, the Governor could simply give the electoral votes to anyone he chose.

          • Somebody says:

            Do you seriously think NY and CA as well as many other states give a fuck how many illegals and dead people vote?

            I’m in FL and I’m sick and GD tired of snowbirds voting here and in their home state. Every time a snowbird from the NE votes it cancels out a true Floridan’s vote. Just because you own multiple houses, doesn’t mean you are entitled to more votes. Same with people they bus in. Give me voter ID and purple finger.

            Furthermore I don’t want illegals counted in the census. Congressional representation and EC votes, as well as $$ are keyed to census data.

        • DeniseVB says:

          The original has been around for 10 years, so it’s not gone 🙂 They can still photoshop a lot of faces on that CNN logo. Squeeeeee! The original Trump tweet has almost 300k likes, his followers are up to 33 million plus on his social media accounts, probably safe to say more than watch all the cable and broadcast news stations combined 😀

    • John Denney says:

      Caesar was really assassinated. A Broadway play substitutes Trump for Caesar and it’s “art”.

      The U.S. is not defined by ethnicity or borders, but by ideas, and anyone can be an American at heart and join us.

      We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these Rights are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
      We unite to defend each other’s Person, Property, and Liberty. Sometimes that requires force of arms, to which we also have a Right.
      We prosper through Can-Do attitude, Diligence, Continuous Learning, and Trustworthiness based in love for our neighbor, as the Lord commanded.

      Can you have too much of that? I don’t think so.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        There are hundreds of people running around DC with degrees from the Ivy league and other so called top tier schools – and it is apparent that if you have a legacy or fill a quota – they will graduate just about anyone as long as they a breathing. Maybe even that is negotiable. Every government, nonprofit or private business I have dealt with over the years has their share of these people . You can tell that many of their coworkers – even those from the same schools – really resent having to carry the bulk of the work load while the extra special ones just go to meetings or shopping but still want (and often get) equal credit and are the first to demand promotions/raises.

  26. mothy67 says:

    I am in heaven over CNN melt down. There is a woman at tea kwon do who was relentless about impeachment. All stuff she gathered from tv news. She knows I’m on Trump train and she scoffed at me. I took high road. Friday she was silent.
    Odd thing is if she took a few deep breaths she’d realize we are not far apart.
    She is a retired nurse that teaches at Duquesne University. It is a private Catholic school in Pittsburgh. Not cheap. They made news recently with drama about Chik-fil-a having a spot in food court. It triggered some students. Utter insanity it is a Catholic school. Church’s stance is similar to chik’s. Anyhow the school gave free CNA training to refugees. A CNA starts here at 15 with full benefits. Its a six week course. There is nothing to study. They learn it all in class. She informed me almost all the refugees fail the test but she was instructed to pass. Think about Mursa and other communicable diseases. She said many of the students were borderline retarded. She is appalled. Spent her life in the health field. My liver and kidneys had complete failure 4 years ago. I was given 2 months. I went to brush my teeth there was blood all over the sink. This was ten minutes after the room had been cleaned. I got athletes feet from a HOSPITAL. I removed myself from organ registry. They did not want to release me. I decided to leave on my own. I walked home and hit many a bar. Its uphill about 3 miles. Honestly, one very big hill 18th Street. No way a dying person can mount that. I knew I was fine. I just had a full blood panel done. I am healthy. 4 years after they pronounced me dead. While I was in hospital with 8 weeks to live they sent in a team to talk to me about smoking. So absurd. I was given 56 days. Who would suffer through nic withdrawal if you have so little time. Somebody, meaning insurance payers, pays for this horse shit.
    I am forever and a day filled with respect towards medical professionals. I was born with a bum ticker. I had two holes, one the size of a quarter and the other the size ofca dime. My heart was three times normal size. My valves are pig. Pig valves are meant to last 5 to 7 years max. I last had surgery in 1970. No way I should be alive, let alone being a man/child that snorted blow in Hyde Park. Ecstasy in Paris. Heroin on Mykonos.
    I love this country. My kid gets so much. I took my neighbors old newspapers and wiped my ass in an outhouse. I walked on clothes in bath tub to be clean and ironed my jeans to be fresh. Not a plumber we had running water but no toilet. We are all sort of successful. We made it through the rain. I love my country. Dimocrats seem hell bent on destroying the concept of individual achievement. We had nothing. So poor. I picked corn, set pins in a bowling alley, sold seeds. We ate noodles and gravy .
    Funny I never as a kid knew Janice was half black and being raped by her foster father. She was just always in my house. We were choatic. No one blinked that Janice was always there. She just was.
    Years later she credits my family for providing a bridge. Seriously I was 16 I worked as a dishwasher. Bus let me off and I walked. I was tired. Janice was just there.
    Flash forward Janice teaches piano. 1982 she clung to my obnoxious family. 2017 she will not take a penny to give piano.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Macron also wants to get rid at least one-third of the MPs (hmmmm – I wonder which ones he wants gone). I am guessing he has been discussing gerrymandering and “fundamental change” and other such topics with The Person formerly known as Barry Sorento.

          Now some are saying it is just a PR stunt , but he might want that teacher to have a good grounding in the royal history for all of Europe.

      This disgusts me. I am going on 11 years. It is a challenge. I don’t feel its right. Hopefully I have not screwed up too much. A child belongs with a mother and father. Unfortunately my kid’s parents can’t stay out of jail or Looney bin. I was so thrilled when she broke her 900 dollar phone. She wept profusely. Meant she has a conscience. Nothing I won’t do for twerp, but there is no replacing a mom or dad.
      I was 39 when I gathered shaypup in my silly arms. There was never any intent. I am now 50 plus. I never sat down and said gee I want to give 3/4 of my savings to a snot. It just happened. None of it was scripted. I sure as hell didn’t want to be a dad. She refers to me as her immature little brother. I really am an asshole. So hitting half century the gays are jealous I have this thing. She means everything to me. It was an accident. I did not sit down and decide to share my life. She was alone and I was there. I can’t remember a time when she was not here. Some of my gay friends at 50 want what I have. They think a kid is an accessory. Trendy. There are thousands of kids out there that need a home. I applaud anyone who provides but it is not easy. My gays think its fun. Fun is not the word I would use. You never stop worrying. You march through snow and read every food label. You hurt so bad as they evolve with life’s up and downs. Pup is stunning. All the fatties attack her for having a butt chin. We do not gain weight. Its genetic. All the phat girls hate her. She has a very small cleft in her chin. I cannot buy her jeans. Her waist is tiny but legs are muscle. She has been sporty since 3. For real I will be watching Flip or Flop she does back flips. She is my treasure. Fuck the fuck who gets a great gay uncle? We were walking down main street. I said babe you have to quit tae kwon do. I do not drive. Right in front of us was Kim’s. It had been there for decades. I thought it to masculine. We went in. Master Kim had a heart transplant. Jesus fuck I am a survivor of shall we say a saw cutting me open. I need my baby girl to respond to life in a good way. I will not let her be owned by her own horror. She is my baby. We started tae kwon do that day. Ursula who married Mr Kim was in a camp in 1940’s Germany. Fled to US at ten. Mother of God I was walking with crud and stepped in by mistake. Mr Kim had a heart transplant. His former students redid his place while he was in hospital. Chance me and crud arrived at his place.

    • elliesmom says:

      Paul Revere only gets top billing because Longfellow immortalized him in a poem. Even on the night Revere road, there were other riders who rode more than twice as far and escaped capture. Israel Bissell made it all the way to New York, a four day ride. Those of us who grew up in the area were taught a lot more about the Revolutionary War than most kids learn in school. When Sarah Palin was trashed for saying Revere never shouted, “The British are coming!”, we were left scratching our heads. Of course he didn’t. In April 1775 he was British, too. 🙂

    President Trump And Ivanka Meet Quietly With Two Girls Who Escaped From Boko Haram

    In a photo taken of President Trump, standing alongside daughter Ivanka, and two of the girls kidnapped by Boko Haram in 2014, Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu, you can see the opportunity present, if you were looking to capitalize on some major P.R.. These two Chibok girls both were able to escape their captors…That’s a big deal.

    But the really essential component here is that President Trump did not alert the media that this meeting was going down. He just did it.

    He didn’t advertise the sit-down, and the press – who would have fawned all over Obama’s PR plays, were not invited. Good riddance.

If they didn’t pay back Fannie and Freddie, I bet they didn’t pay back any of the funds they “borrowed” from.

      Check it out before you go. Often appointments are assigned by computer and the computer doesn’t look for “holiday” designations.

Then the drivers left before they knew the appts did not really exist. (The appointments that usually were valid were for treatments like kidney dialysis, etc.)
