Just remember, the hotheads keep destroying his “Star” and the city will keep replacing it to assure us he’ll always have the shiniest star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    Unless Lucy, Ethel and Fred were at work someone had to see this being done.

      LOL, GMTA ! The end of that episode John Wayne brought them about a dozen replacements !

      I have the entire I Love Lucy Collection on ….errr….VHS tapes. I can’t seem to give them away because none of the local residential non-profits have VHS players. I’m certainly not going to throw them away.

    And I noticed that three tech newsletters ran similar stories about searching/removing tweets. Hmmmmmm the timing does seem interesting.

    I almost ran with this one for the post photo……unfortunately, it’s fake, it’s really Jack Nicholson’s butt from the movie “As Good As It Gets”, wait there’s more, he used a butt double for this scene.

    • lateblum says:

      It was from “Something’s Gotta Give”. Just watched it again last week. The nudie scene in “As Good as it Gets” was Helen Hunt or whoever played her body double. And it was an incredible body – double or not.

    Entertaining…Millionaire Democrat Wants To Tax Parents With More Than Two Kids As “Irresponsible Breeders” http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/millionaire-democrat-wants-to-tax-parents-with-more-than-two-kids-as-irresponsible-breeders_07252018
    I don’t think he’s gonna win thinking like this.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      A lot of the people I deal with think this way here in swampland. The worst reactions are for those in apparently stable family units with mom/dad/kids and especially if Mom does not work. Really bad if they also live in a “nice” neighborhood. Because one should always equate the ability to do fine on one income and residential location with knowing that there is an implied limit of two per household and real women never chose to be at home with kids.

      • mcnorman says:

        A friend from swampland once told me that the au pair is of far greater need than anyone else in their life.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          The au pairs are really treated badly by many. The basically work 24/7/365. Some are never paid with money but told room and board are enough. And the room and board are – well Dickens would have a field day.

          • mcnorman says:

            You aren’t kidding. They search for the most hardup people to work as indentured servants. It’s gross, but then again they don’t treat their spouses with much more tenderness either. So we all pray that those nannies are teaching their spawn to be nice. In all fairness, those children will someday be tasked with caring for their parents…I’m not sure that anyone wants their children in charge of their meds, diaper changes, banking, etc. but they all meetup with karma in the end.

          • Somebody says:

            Where do you find such au pairs?

            I thought an au pair was the perfect answer for my son and to be honest for me too. When I checked it out the cost is more than daycare. It cost just over $10,000 for visas and fees. You then pay them $200 per week technically it’s $197.85. You must provide a car, insurance for car, health insurance, $500 per year toward classes, 2 weeks paid vacation and roundtrip airfare home once per year. The visas and fees are required yearly.

            Yearly cost is $22,000 plus whatever the insurance cost is AND they are only allowed to work 47 hours per week. Taking into account his commute my son would need someone 53-55 hours per week. In another year when the youngest goes to school he’d be under the 47 hours, but by then why pay that much for 2 hours in the afternoon. It would be nice if he hired someone when they’re all in school……but I doubt it. After school care here is $95 per week, per child maximum amount of time is 3 hours and 15 minutes, unreal. My son only needs 2 hours.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            Well people who go the legit route do indeed pay high fees. But here in swampland a lot of the au pairs are faux pairs and not through — regular channels –but people still call them au pairs because it sounds good . since you rarely see them unless you have an inkling they know you will assume they have done things properly. The child care workers are really often not more than indentured servants often without papers or their papers are “held”. Also, this area had a larger population from other countries that are well to do. Quasi diplomatic staff, children of foreign elites. . . many of whom arrive with their own servants that are often poor relatives or those families gave up to pay a debt. The kids are the ones who usually let the cat out of the bag because they do not realize parental units have put up a false front. Or adults who think they are in a safe space. I have a neighbors that work with a church group that tries to help . This is one of the reasons they are so upset at PT. There is so much crap going on and many people who live here either work to make connection s to access such networks to get some of the perks or pretend it could not possible exist in such a well educated area. Had another neighbor who worked to get Muslim girls who had been sold out really unpleasant situations. They often needed surgery as they would have broken noses and jaws and worse so the men would not find them attractive.

          • Somebody says:

            Seriously where do you find them? All the places I’ve seen are as described above.

            My son has a nice bonus room over his 2 car garage. It’s the only room upstairs, very private. Private bathroom up there, 2 walk in closets, full bedroom set, table and chairs and TV. It’s perfect for an au pair. If the au pair cooked and cleaned too, my son and I would kiss her ass and treat her like gold.

          • jeffhas says:

            It is modern day slavery.

            PERIOD.

            That what illegal immigration is fit, to continue to have a slave class that gets slave wages.

            If they had to pay real wages most wouldn’t be able to afford the slaves, they just be regular jones’ rather then the ones that are ‘elite’ and regarded as better then.

            So disgusting… just clean your own damn house and watch your own damn kids like real people who care about someone other then themselves.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Why don’t we try limiting families on welfare to two kids first ?

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Can you imagine the uproar!

      • mcnorman says:

        I think that this Democrat has no idea what fires he fans.

        • DeniseVB says:

          It’s why I’m a Class of 2008 #WalkAway. 2016 pretty much sealed it for me when I felt sorry for the Bernies while I was on the Trump Train. Weird.

          • lateblum says:

            You and me both, Denise.

          • mcnorman says:

            That business about us being too stupid to understand healthcare did it for me. I have nothing but contempt for those asshats. Karma’s a bitch and they are still refusing to see what was forced down their throats. I’m now watching the “death” panels hand their decisions to those who thought this was a dream come true. They still don’t get it though. They are still blaming everything and anything else but their messiah and company.

      Soledad tweets like and 11 year old. She should work on that. Perhaps if she tries really hard, little Sol can achieve junior high level of mean girl. Perhaps her nanny can teach Sol in her 5 minuted of downtime from taking care of the those four kids (and why does Sol have four kids – SJWs were are you that you let her get away such irresponsibleness).

    • swanspirit says:

      Is it just me, or are the Democrats, or what used to be Democrats and are now coming out as full fledged Socialusts, in some kind of inevitable death spiral, headlong into oblivion?

      They have no actual workable viable plan or platform, but instead have this utopian wish list of cool shit and free stuff that they just want, with no visible structured means of accomplishing same. Not to mention, absolutely no thought given, to the outcome of having all the cool shit and free stuff. No future orientation whatsoever. The best they can do is mumble something about the greedy rich having too much money, while amassing as much of that money by fistfuls for themselves

      Take San Francisco. What was once a beautiful, livable city, is now awash in homeless people, criminals, sidewalk junkies, used drug paraphernalia, and human feces. But, they will outlaw straws because “the environment” .

      And you had better damned site use the right pronoun for the correct gender, even if there are so many different ones now, no one can really keep track, and the trans people are beating up lesbian women; yes literally beating them up assault and battery style, for daring to declare themselves actual women.
      As a party, the Democrats seem, to me, to be splintered, leaderless, flailing, and spinning out of control.
      I am so glad I left, the left behind.

    • lyn says:

      P.S.

    • Lulu says:

      What is really funny is that Soledad is married to a long time hedge fund guy. She is a complete hypocrite.

  9. Underwhelmed says:

    Now this. The leftist filth will stop at nothing in their desperation to undermine Trump. What’s great is more and more people are waking up. And once you’re woke, you’re woke.

    Positive Dog story:
    This afternoon, the MIL was stopped at a light/intersection near her home when a male, standing in the road, came up to her window and said something about car trouble. Her Pit Bull raised his head to check out the situation, the guy took off running. BTW, two weeks ago, a 71 y/o woman was car jacked two miles from the MIL’s house. She was found dead in a ditch several days later and her car found burned 50 miles away.

    • lateblum says:

      Maybe MIL should call the police and relate her experience to them. She might provide some kind of description to them.

      • elliesmom says:

        Second that. It’s also why women should travel with their dogs. Except when it’s hot, and I would have to leave her in the car, Ellie goes everywhere with me. She only looks like a goofball.

      • SHV says:

        Good idea…Al has gone to work but I’ll asked her for more details about her Mom’s experience. (Two “youths”, 16 and 18 were charged with Capital murder a few days ago for killing the 71 y/o woman.)

        • lateblum says:

          Oh my. I hope your MIL and others can be safe in their cars. My plan is if anyone tries to stop me or get my attn in my car, I’ll dial 911 on my cell or drive straight to the PD.

    • swanspirit says:

      There is no reason two guys need to talk to a woman, or anyone else about car trouble. Everyone has a phone these days. They can call for help. I am glad your MIL had the dog with her.

      Well bye! Interesting also about the Gov wanna be Kate in Oregon. Was kinda nuts when I lived there but paid ZERO attention to politics, too busy having fun. Their Bandon/Tillamook cheese slid off their cracker!

    • Lulu says:

      She stopped going to school when she was about 8 to make money for her manager/husband and parents. She is a semi-functional moron. I guess she thinks she can get more gigs (and money) virtue signalling the people who are her audience that she knows nothing about from her life-long bubble. Strange, dumb Celine.

    Holy crap. FaceFart nose-dived 24% in after hour trading! Why? Business media says slow growth of new users. LOL. They are losing users. New potential users (kids and foreign growth) are not happening and using other platforms. Some mention of censorship by the loony management and SJW’er-isms. Not mentioned is with the new trade stuff with FaceFart looking like an old worn out loser to be tossed for cash to buy up the new Trump trade deal industries like energy, farm commodities, and construction for LNG export facilities on the Gulf of Mexico. The spy state of gathering information of every human (FaceFart and Google’s product) is not looking too rosy in the developed world legally either. Tech has reached a plateau (or shrinking) with little new stuff being developed and old productive industries coming back. Tech is no longer such a good place to park money. Take the money out of tech and do something productive with it besides enabling assholes.

      Love it.
      Maybe a week ago we were talking about the fading relevance. My almost 12 year old niece thinks it laughable and for old people. New movie 8th Grade pokes fun of it.
