    I guess this happened last night, it was overcast and stormy all night, so I guess if it happened here, I would have missed it anyhow.

    For anyone looking for a good movie to watch on TCM.

    It’s one of my favorites. 🙂


    • DeniseVB says:

      Thanks for the reminder !

    • Dora says:

      I enjoyed the movie very much.

      It had been a while since I watched it.

      Hubby watched it with me and every once in a while we would look at each other and say “They could never make this movie today”. 🙂

      That’s true. And it’s sad.

    Call me silly, but I don’t think being able to 3D print your own gun is a good idea.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Lol, make a gun??? I’ll be happy to just to figure out my printer/scanner/copier machine, it hates me.

      • mothy2017 says:

        I hear ya.
        Sometimes I just buy new ones. Usually work for about a year and then I can’t print anything. Target usually has them on sale for around 35. Ink costs nearly as much. I just buy a new cheapy with ink.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I use mine so infrequently for tickets and stuff, the ink boxes dry out. Found them in bulk on Amazon, much cheaper than going through the dealer.

        • NewOrleans says:


          I always stay away from refurbished anything, but I got really tired of paying $50 per ink cartridges that were only being used to print various coupons and news articles for my family to read offline and throw away.

          I decided to #WalkAway from high ink prices!

          I’ve now gone through at least 50 refurbished cartridges and have had ZERO problems with them. And these Epsons refurbished cost $5 each! I wish I’d have switched two decades ago.

    • SHV says:

      IMO, much better option, if a person wants a legal gun without a serial number, is to get together with a few friends and get one of these (~$1800.00) Apparently there is a huge demand and back order is ~6 months.

      • SHV says:

        Here is a short video about the guy who created the first “printed gun” and was shut down by the US State Dept. He started the “ghost gun” as a company as a F/U to the Feds and in order to fund law suits against the Govt.

  7. DeniseVB says:

    Excellent question 😛

    • Lulu says:

      I’m waiting for people in cars, trucks, semi’s just to get out, walk up the them and beat the ever-loving crap out of them, throw or drag them off the road and just drive on with the bobo’s holding their kicked asses and whinning. Call it a Flight 93 moment.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        You would only have to run over a couple of those speedbumps and they would get the message toot sweet.

        I can remember when I was a kid and my Grandma told me to “Go play in the freeway.” She didn’t really mean it and she would have never imagined that I would be stupid enough to do it.

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Love this one……

    earlier this week I read where they slipped the catch and release program into a bill. Now I read no funding for border wall until after the midterms.
    Wonder how many callouses the republicans have on their knees from kneeling for the democrats

    • lyn says:

      They are corrupt assholes.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        They are just keeping the promises they made during the last campaign. They promised their corporate owners and masters that they would never allow Trump to build a wall.

        As they say in Chicago, “An honest politician is one who stays bought.”

      And storytelling like the skittles boy. Creating a myth perpetuating a cycle.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        The same news media that tried to convince America that St. Trayvon of the Sidewalk was an innocent victim of racial profiling keeps obsessing over Trump’s “lies” on topics of vital importance such as the size of his inaugural crowd.

    • 49erDweet says:

      And don’t forget the perennial fund raising. “Please send $ to help us raise more $ so we can beg for more $. Be generou$$$$”.

  12. Myiq2xu™ says:

    Someone from 929-341-3060 called Mom to tell her that she had won a million dollars. For some reason I don’t understand Mom has never been able to hang up on salesmen and scammers. She was already on the phone when I got there and I thought at first she was talking to a salesman but when I took the phone from her and politely asked, “WHO THE FUCK IS THIS?” individual on the other end declined to give his name or identify his company.

    This situation escalated quickly when the male voice with an Indian accent advised me to “Calm down” but this is a family blog and I can’t repeat what I said to him. Just to be on the safe side I will be waiting at Mom’s this Monday morning at 10 am when they come by to bring mom her check.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      So far no one has successfully scammed Mom but I worry there will be a first time. Not to mention that this is my meager inheritance we’re talking about.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        I was half-asleep when I got to her place and even though I went from “sleepy” to “Democrat” in only .000002 seconds I wasn’t on my game.

      Pack a lunch. Could take several days to get to the central valley from Bangladesh.

    Obama Foundation delays presidential center groundbreaking until next year

    The Obama Foundation has pushed back the groundbreaking date for the Obama Presidential Center after the federal review process was delayed for a second time this summer, officials confirmed Friday.

      The Russian Hate Bots are saying this is Obama’s doing on Trump’s FB page. LOL. People are shoving it back in their smartass, slimy faces. #winning

    • Underwhelmed says:

      Rub their faces in it so hard they beg for mercy.

    Eerie aftermath of wildfire that has torn through California: Shocking pictures show destruction caused by blaze that has left two firefighters dead and thousands homeless

    Check out that deranged look in his eyes. He’s gone full Democrat.

  24. Myiq2xu™ says:

    Mom was watching “What Would You Do” and all the scenarios were so fucking fake. There was one where someone leaves their laptop on the table at a restaurant and goes outside to make a phone call, Then someone comes in, picks up the laptop and heads for the door. All the diners spontaneously form a posse to stop the thief. Bull. Shit.

    I’ve chased a lot of thieves and I can count on one finger the number of times a bystander lifted a finger to help me.

    I got so agitated Mom made me go home.

  26. Dora says:

    Fire now in Nevada too. My sister-in-law said that the Valley is filled with smoke. They can’t even see the mountains.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      I knew an MP in the army who loved to give wrong directions. People would pull up to the gate at Ft. Lewis and ask, “Where’s the PX?” and he would say, “Go down to the second light and take a left. You can’t miss it.”

      He told me that the only thing on that road were the ranges for practicing with weapons. If you kept driving that road went for 20-30 miles with nothing to see but trees and ranges. He said no matter what people asked directions to he would say the same thing. “I called it ‘the scenic route'” he said.

    • Cisco says:

      And when Trump supporters were ruthlessly attacked, the Democrat propaganda corps never ever described the thugs as “Hillary supporters.

    • jeffhas says:

      Gonzalez Auto Center… didn’t bother to tweet out the Trump supporting owner is a Latino here LEGALLY !

      So funny… Hispanics leaving the plantation too!

    • Miranda says:

      The story doesn’t say whether she was separated from her family or came here on her own. If the latter, did they want her out on the streets? If she was being taken to an eye exam, it sounds as if they were looking after her.

    • Anthony says:

      No word on whether she was unaccompanied by parents or family members or not, also noticed ‘subtle’ phrasing “Before Sandigo could get there, police vans began circling the shop’s parking lot.“. On shark week. They wrote that on shark week. Really?

      As far as we know, she may or may not have been a victim of human trafficking or just sent here alone by her parents. Or not. Why don’t we find out all the facts first before equating law enforcement doing their job with deep sea predators on the prowl?

      Aside from that, I really need an eye exam myself. Recently I swore I saw a flying saucer while walking on the pier in Riverside Park. Turns out it was an airplane light distorted by a halation from a cataract developing on my left eye. That made me burst into uncontrollable giggles, but I will need surgery soon, “soon” meaning whenever I come up with $5K for the lenses they’ll have to insert. I’d be better off if I were here illegally…

    I love the quote from Ezekiel. It’s perfect.

  33. Dora says:

    The media doesn’t think this event is important enough to give live coverage. Sad.

  34. Dora says:

    I’m not going to criticize those people who believed it. I will just tell you that I never did.


    National Geographic Admits ‘Starving Polar Bear’ Was a Bit of a Fraud

    Remember that video of an emaciated Baffin Island polar bear that went viral last December? It became the poster bear for climate change. National Geographic made a stunning admission – it was a bit bogus.

    It’s the part about the nuclear codes that makes me nervous.
