    After WJC, Donna Rice and Gary Hartpence wouldn’t make the back page of the Enquirer.

    this would be an interesting choice. I had not thought about her, but it could work

    a good article on McCain’s spite. Cindy does not come off looking too good either

    • DeniseVB says:

      Choosing Obama to speak at the service was a giant middle finger to the rest of us.

      • jenlyn says:

        I find it hysterical….makes our point exactly. John McCain was an enemy and his last FO was to tell us point blank as if we didn’t already know. Only thing is that he — being the Godless idiot that he was — forgot about God making sure he would rot in hell so the biggest FO was to him in the end.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      For some reason a new nickname for her popped into my head this week. Perhaps because this was the moment that the family, and especially Cindy, could chose to just keep their mouths shut and downplay the negative crap and keeps things on a positive note. It would have been so easy to just let it look as if due to the nature of the illness that little Johnny was not in his right mind and that they do not want to amplify what may or may not have been his true feelings. But no. Full force of vindictiveness. And enabled by the GOPe , Progs and nasty MSM..

      So now i keep seeing the potential for limericks about the Wh$$e of Coors.

    LIFE HACK #3247 – Drinking so much you lost your ambition in the kitchen? No problem. Loving my new stove and planned on making lunch for myself and a friend. I have this pork chop recipe that’s a million little steps, but decided to make margaritas beforehand. Once appropriately tipsy, there was no way in hell I was going to julienne anything, so I marinated the chops in minced garlic, a little cumin, some red pepper flakes, chopped fresh basil, 1 1/2 tsp of liquid mesquite and an 8 oz. Margarita (with double tequila, just the way I like them) for one hour. Pat the meat dry, dredge in seasoned flour and sear 4 – 5 minutes on each side. Remove chops, tent in tinfoil (used my hat) for about 15 min while grilling sliced peaches sprinkled with turbinado sugar and a little more tequila. Try to NOT set anything on fire.while the alcohol burns off. Like my former eyelashes. Once peaches carmelize, add a little chicken broth and reduce. Plate the chops, cover with peaches removed with a slotted spoon and drizzle with the reduction. Sides were jalapeno grits and baby arugula salad. Best. Lunch. Ever.

    must be nice not to have to take responsibility for you own actions and watch someone else get nailed for the same thing

    the feces will hit the wind machine now..big time

    • DeniseVB says:

      That’s just a general across the board 2% raise, it won’t eliminate quality performance rewards of the step pay increases. Guess that means they’ll all have to work harder 😀

    • elliesmom says:

      That was fun. I can make a have decent pizza, including the dough. When I get a hankering for a Chicago-style, I might get out the pans. But the point of fast food from a parents’ perspective is it’s fast, and you don’t have to cook. Pizza night, or Chil-fil-a is “Momma ain’t turning on the stove” night. If I’m cooking, the kids are going to eat the braised ribs, scalloped potatoes, and 7 kinds of veggies. lol

    Stolen from a friends FB timeline 😀

    And so it is…

    MY SON, “YOU WILL MARRY THE GIRL I CHOOSE.”

    HE SAID, “NO.”

    I TOLD HIM, “SHE IS BILL GATES’ DAUGHTER.”

    HE SAID, “YES.”

    I CALLED BILL GATES AND SAID, “I WANT YOUR DAUGHTER TO MARRY MY SON.”

    BILL GATES SAID, “NO.”

    I TOLD BILL GATES, “MY SON IS THE CEO OF THE WORLD BANK.”

    BILL GATES SAID, “OK.”

    I CALLED THE PRESIDENT OF WORLD BANK AND ASKED HIM TO MAKE MY SON THE CEO.

    HE SAID, “NO.”

    I TOLD HIM, “MY SON IS BILL GATES’ SON-IN-LAW.”

    HE SAID, “OK.”

    AND THAT’S EXACTLY HOW POLITICS WORKS.

    MSN poll. Would you vote to re-elect Trump in 2020? 67% yes. But all of the “featured” comments are negative. smh

    • DeniseVB says:

      When I saw that poll earlier, 67% of almost 200k votes ! Then I saw all the angry and sad emoji faces and thought, nah, ain’t gonna read the comments.

    Canadian ‘First Man’ actor defends omitting American flag planting on moon: Achievement ‘transcended countries and borders’

    http://www.theamericanmirror.com/canadian-first-man-actor-defends-omitting-american-flag-planting-on-moon-achievement-transcended-countries-and-borders/

    • swanspirit says:

      Well dufus Hollywood actor, you just missed the entire point of the space race to the moon.

      • taw46 says:

        No wonder, it’s a “Canadian” Hollywood actor. Doesn’t care. But given the state of Hollywood, I doubt the American actors would care either. (And a French-Canadian director. And a British actress played Armstrong’s wife. Nothing American about it.)

    • taw46 says:

      Give it a couple of generations, kids won’t even know Americans went to the Moon. They will erase it all.

    • taw46 says:

    • taw46 says:

      You know what Dora, I’m getting more pissed the more I think about it.

      • taw46 says:

        I read some of the replies to the Drudge tweet. Lots of mad people.

      • helenk3 says:

        my first presidential vote was for JFK. He made us believe we could achieve the impossible. He inspired us to dream. We have not had a president since then that could do that. Our country’s loss. Was he a perfect man, NO but he understood the American dream

        • DeniseVB says:

          Up to Obama, I believe our former Presidents did love America. I know Trump does, but I don’t think any of his primary challengers would have beat Hillary, and I know they love America too.

    • taw46 says:

      Lol.

      • lyn says:

        No more guilt!

      • jenlyn says:

        Let me tell you something about the Flag Issue. My deceased partner’s father built the space lab at Nasa and was a VIP to say the least. He told me the story about how the American Flag was chosen as the item to be left as a remembrance of our country achieving this great trip to the moon. Many people weighed in on what would be left–since it is a forever thing–they even had schoolkids write in ideas. Finally, the American Flag was chosen and it is DAMN important and for this film to leave it out FUCK YOU my god people history matters. All you have to do is google and you can probably see old film footage of kids in class writing to NASA.

        • elliesmom says:

          I suspect the people behind the film weren’t alive then. They couldn’t have been. Sputnik was launched when I was in first grade, and the moon landing came just a few weeks after I graduated from high school. We lived and breathed space program while I was in school. The astronauts were our heroes, and those of us who didn’t aspire to be one of them wanted to work as rocket scientists or man the comm at Mission Control. My mom didn’t live to see me take kids on a “mission” at a Challenger Center, but it would have tickled her to see me in my astronaut gear. I’m sure she would have insisted on sewing on the patches. My dream at 12 was to work for NASA, and I got to do that. It was in a different role than I had imagined, but I got there. One of things that bothered me most as a teacher was how limited kids are in their dreams today. We dreamed about touching the stars.

    • elliesmom says:

      Every year I gave my 8th graders an assignment to read Kennedy’s speech about going to the moon. The one at Rice University where he talks about how far we’ve come in our knowledge and how fast we’re moving forward. When we get to this part, “We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.” Then I’d ask them to write a letter to themselves explaining about something they did personally, not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard. I’d collect them up and mail them to their parents.
      I did this because in 1963, the 12 year old me got this assignment, and when the 47 year old me went through her mother’s things after she died, I found my letter. The race to the moon inspired a lot of us to attempt things we might not have done, And it was an American thing.

      Thank God for a break from the funeral hatefest…

    • Constance says:

      I wish President Trump would come to Washington state and try to rally people to vote out Senator Cantwell. We are pretty sick of having a do nothing Senator and Republicans have a pretty good challenger. Dino Rossi won as Governor but never served as the Democrats were able to find “uncounted ballots” in the Court house basement, or was it the trunk of a Democrat poll worker? Anyway it’s time to ditch our Democrat overlords. With a slight push it could happen! I believe!

  25. taw46 says:

    Our President looks great tonight. And he is kicking ass, clearly stating the difference between what the Dems want to do and what he is doing. Needs to keep this up at every rally.
