      That was an interesting couple of hours. I will have to think more about who wins in a cage match- a cat or a lobster of equal weight and what the rules would be like in a non-competitive Monopoly game. I would like to hear Peterson speak more about how people can be can be enlisted to participate in evil.

    I am still freaked out over the volley ball coach tearing up Shay’s tuition check. 2500 dollars. She was the only new student to make the team. The other girls who made it through first round are still competing for what I think is six slots. It is really going to help because we still need to cover hotels and food. It’s not affiliated with a school. I hadn’t taken it all that seriously. She is into so many things. I didn’t think much of vball. She had to do travel ball. We went to camp last year and Pitt coaches said she has “it”. I was focused on swim. She has broken school records. I thought that would be her ticket combined with her 529 account. Vball was just a passing thing I didn’t see a future. Well she is playing for free in the 15 and up league ( she is freshly 14).

    I sometimes think of her when I have arguments with my proggie friends about protests. My libs see poverty as a disabilty and poor black people as incapable of leading a responsible life. They see victims in all things. Shay was unwanted. I taught her early on that she is writing her story.
    How many kids get raised by a gay great gay uncle who had multiple open hearts , a gay conservative at that. I don’t believe in poor me. She has lunch with state Senators to discuss women in STEM? The school went way overboard because Taylon had a set of demands if he was going to speak at Carnegie Mellon. The kid is off the charts smart. His demands included a miracle burger from Burger King for tits. The school collectively had a coronary. I had to go in to discuss the abuse. I was like have ya met my kid. She ain’t hurt. She has known Tay since pre school. He is the smartest kid I have ever met. Wants nothing to do with school. He wants to play for the nfl. He intentionally fails things and will not go to gifted classes. Hehas failed classes because his stock answer is IDK. Funny kid. Of course he is Vietnamese and lives above a nail salon. The school acted like he had committed a mass murder. The one teacher was nearly in tears. We will not condone this sexism. I was like lighten up. They are good friends. He shouldn’t have demanded a veggie burger. That’s gross. I refused to oblige the breast comment. Shay was not injured and he did it to draw attention. He is so white for an asian. He hates being singled out for that brain. He always acts out when he gets positive attention. I know the lad protects my brat after games. He wouldn’t have said it about a girl that was insecure or sensitive. He knew Shay’s response.
    I wish the world still had common sense. I get the fact that there is liability, but the teachers talked to me like it was a pink pussy hat march. Tay was Kavenaugh at a gang bang. Tay didn’t even say it to Shay. It was in his list of demands given to the principal. Her would go to Carnegie Mellon if “tits” got a vegan lunch and went with him. Come on man. He was screaming look at me for me not obnoxious scores. His parents were floored. I don’t bother taking pics. Everything Shay does his parents are there with state of the art cameras. She was until high school the featured dancer at all things in my town. I owe a yuuuuuuge debt to ballet. I started her at one of the Dance Mom off shoots. I declared a big fuck you as a nasty woman screamed at my baby. Uh no. Homey don’t play. The wench was not right in the head. She accused Shay of chewing gum and went The View crazy on her. Pup was 3 and there was no gum. I found a former Broadway dancer who dedicates her life to saving cats. Shay took ballet, gymnastics, hip hop, jazz for 100 a month. It was in the basement of a church. Mary Ellen put on shows and only asked for cat food. My bear took tae kwon do, archery, and attended the CLO for acting. The CLO was 600 a semester. There is no tuition if you prove need. Archery was 20 bucks a month with a gun club membership which is 100 a year!
    I have had parents tell me I treat my kid like she is attending prep school. This I hear from affluent parents. I bought Shay swim lessons when she was wee. I got a call sophmore year in college Scotty had drowned. I delivered Scotty at home, well maybe not delivered. My sister woke me she had to pee and saw babies head. I was 17 and a child was coming. We had no phone. Yep that poor. My brother ran to EMS. It was 1984 my mom had graduated from nursing school when I did high school. They had taken my younger brothers to Sea World and pulled in just as my sister on my bed was pushing out a kid. I loved Scotty. He was my brother my sister moved to Poughkeepsie with her heroin addicted husband and he was pushed in a pool. He lived in a vegatitive state for ten years. I did not protect my buddy. You bet your arse I made sure Shay can swim. He would be 36 and pup’s uncle. I can’t turn back time, but I will live forever knowing I chose going away to college over protecting a little boy who needed me. My sister was unfit. Still is. I should have been there.

    Elliesmom got me addicted to The Undoing on hbo. Funny how the world connects. Dream a Little Dream is one of my favorite songs. It is the brat. My brat. End of the year against my wishes baby girl tried out for cheer. She made the team. A junior did not make the cut. My monster cried like convulsing tears for this girl who didn’t bring it. I know it sounds twisted but I was elated. YeahI spoil. She’s my irritation. I do shit like sit alone at an amusement park for hours to know she’s safe. I am no saint that’s not just pepsi in my glass. She cried hard for another who took a big ego blow. Rejected again for cheer. My monster saw her pain. I had never been prouder than my kid crying for someone else. It sounds awry but I have always feared the pup might lack a conscience. Her parents are in my opinion borderline. Everything is about them. Prison, jail, psych wards are routine. I am a cunt. Trust me I am fully aware of how self centered I am. My icky caring was the proudest moment of my life. I was not given an instruction book. I did what I could. I fought to protect her up against the courts. We survived. I need to thank all of you. It has been 14 years of da brat. I needed you people to express my thoughts during very bizarre years of legal warfare. I needed to speak so I didn’t cave. I was scared. Money was an issue. Her dad would file and file. It cost him nothing. He beat his girlfriend so badly had her get hooked on heroin. She was a dependent mess. He knocked out her front teeth. She sucks dick to get a fix. Was I ever going to let my Shaypup endure his abuse. Not a chance. I won. I really needed this space. I won. I could not have done it without you guys. My heart not my wallet was broke. I was in courtrooms with the dad in jail and told reschedule. I went through sex allegations. Her mom accused me of raping her child. Oh that was fun. The way idiot social workers talked to me. A joy. I would have gone to prison before I let my baby have a vaginal exam. I was sitting outside a room the MDS came out and said there is no abuse. Her mom was just out of her third psych ward. I could have made it an issue. Shay ccounts not me. I spoke at length about false accusations. It would hurt me pup. Kayla has three other kids. She texts Shay. They chat. I let it go. Yeah I got kicked in the stomach. My brat is worth it. Kayla has apologized for fake accusation. Why would I deter my brat from knowing her mother. What world would I create if I cannot teach ostensibly my daughter to forgive.
    She gets to hold anger but please Jesus if you are out there hold her close and let her forgive.
    I know what it is like to be beaten and pissed on as young men kicked me in the face. Nothing provides true joy outside of getting pissed on by the jocks.
    I was in London. In a pub. A limited person played I’ll Stand by You. The woman had developmental issues.
    Some fuck sticks made fun of her. I put 20 quid in the juke and played I’ll Stand by You by The Pretenders. I said fuck with me. No one did.

      I’m sure there is a legal requirement to hold all election related materials for a specific period of time which is probably at least a year.

    200 year old ship exposed by beach erosion in NE Florida.
    Cuz climate change.
    Pfft. Was it climate change that buried it?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Yeah, some lady whined about how much beach they’ve lost in the past 3 years….global warming !!!???…………probably had nothing to do with all those new oceanfront condos lining the beach? I’m surprised a beachcomber with a good metal detector didn’t uncover that wreckage by now.

      • elliesmom says:

        The primary cause of beach erosion is longshore currents. They move sand up the west coast and down the east coast like huge conveyor belts. Humans build barriers to try to keep their sand from becoming someone else’s sand, and it starves the beaches further along on the belt. When beaches erode, the sand doesn’t go down a big black hole, and it doesn’t end up out in the middle of the ocean. Even on our tiny lakefront beach it’s the stone walls people have built that keep the beachfront area from becoming longer and forces the sand into the lake. It’s wind erosion that changes the patterns of sand dunes. Once again, when the sand erodes from the dunes, it doesn’t disappear. It makes dunes somewhere else. People go to great lengths to preserve the dunes, but what they’re really trying to do is keep the dunes for themselves

      • lateblum says:

        I’m gonna whine about losing the beaches here in Illinois. The winds are s t r o n g, and the lake currents are stronger. Waves are unbelievably high. We have completely lost 2 of our 7 public beaches. The remaining 5 beaches are between 1/2 to 2/3 smaller than 2 years ago. The private beaches have also disappeared with the exception of the Northwestern University beach. Home owners along the lakefront have had to build walls to keep the lake water off their properties and out of their homes. There have been times when people cannot walk on the sidewalks because the water has overtaken the public parkland between the water’s edge and the street. This despite the existing walls of concrete blocks that have recently been fortified. I’m not blaming climate change. I am saying weather is at least a partial cause. It is sad to witness these changes here.

        • elliesmom says:

          It is sad, but I’d put money down that some of the things people are doing to save their own beachfronts is what’s causing others to lose theirs. A lake is a closed system. The sand doesn’t end up out in Elk Grove. If I could find the time lapse video of the east coast of Florida, I’d link it. It’s incredible to watch the sand move along the coast.

          • lateblum says:

            I think you’re probably right about people or maybe cities north of us. But here, it has caused devastating results. Some Chicago beaches have also disappeared. The lake water now washes into the parking garages of buildings that were football fields away from the lake. So sad, really.
            The 2 Chicago beaches of my teen years no longer exist. My kids used to life guard at Evanston beaches that are also nonexistent.

          • swanspirit says:

            Beach erosion is a huge topic, and economic factor in this area. They track it down to the grain of sand, almost. There is regular dredging, and beach restoration, and it is extremely expensive. No one has blamed it on any kind of warming, or climate change. They know better.

    • John Denney says:

      As a Coastie, I was stationed on this island for a year, and saw the beaches shift considerably over the course of that year.

      What was really cool was that a bunch of sand shifted out into the water about 30 yards off the end of the island nearest you, reducing the water depth to a few feet. That caused swells from the south to mound up into perfectly formed 2 to 3 foot waves that would hold their shape for about 50 yards, until the water got deep again and they would disappear.
      A guy who’d been stationed there a year before me had sent in a couple boxtops from Kool cigarette cartons and a few bucks to get a 6 foot styrofoam Snark sailboat with “Kool” emblazoned on the lateen rigged sail. He left it when he rotated out, and I sailed it alot. Yes, I have sailed solo around a Hawaiian Island in a 6 foot styrofoam sailboat. 😉
      So when I noticed those beautiful waves near the end of my tour, I took out the mast & daggerboard, grabbed a couple other guys and a couple paddles and surfed those waves, with one guy paddling on each side, and me running the tiller.
      Good times!

    A hi tech friend says:

    This is another good analysis of irregularities that very strongly indicate high levels of voter fraud in Michigan. Points 11 and 13 in particular are “smoking guns”.
    11) shows that in 14 precincts, voter turnout was over 100% of eligible voters_ eligible voters, not registered voters, so same day voter registration cannot explain this. 9 out of the 14 are within 5% of the estimated population of eligible voters so it might be argued that they are within the margin of error for the estimate of eligible voters, but those numbers still would indicate an unheard of voter turnout_ hard to fathom but mathematically possible. The other 5 are over 133% of the eligible voter population and 1 is 350% (!!!). These 5 cannot be explained by anything but fraud.
    13) shows that in a 2:38 time span ~350,000 votes were counted in precincts where the scanning equipment had a capacity of ~95,000. So ~290,000 votes were counted that could not have been scanned. These were either created purely in software or were bulk-loaded from a flash drive or network transfer. There is no way they could have been scanned into the system in that time period.

      I also remember a “wildlife” program that showed a pack of lions take down a full grown elephant (they suceeded, but it seemed to take forever because he fought so hard 😦 ). I’d like that to be a metaphor for the GOP. PDJT is crushing it, by exposing the RINOS.

          One thing to keep in mind is Powell is directly linked to Mike Flynn. I am not saying he is driving this but if anyone knew what was out there and available to corrupt regimes worldwide, it would be him.

        • Constance says:

          It’s starting to look to me like the Bushites are the ones behind this election rigging. I think CNN said Cheney was going to advise Biden. Now his daughter Liz called out President Trump and told him to concede. Cheney was CEO of Halliburton (war industry) before he was VP for Bush 43. Bush 41 was CIA director and UN ambassador before he was President. Then there is the fact that Paul Ryan is on the FOX news board and FOX went all in hard for Biden as if they knew what was going down. Not to say Democrats are innocent, But I’m feeling the people behind the Dominion algorithms are the Bushites.
          Then add in that the House Republicans just voted Liz Cheney back into power and she comes out swinging at Trump. Yes she wants to be Speaker of the House. but she is a Bushite out of step with today’s party.

          “So what exactly is Cheney doing? Whatever her plan, you can bet it is a gross miscalculation.”

Don’t know why I made it to the bathroom in the basement apartment. It’s far. I am lazy. I would piss out the window before I trekked down three flights of stairs. I lose my tv remote a few times a day. I lose it in my bed. Its just a twin. Right now I just found it. I of course lost the back thing that holds batteries in. I can’t find batteries. I joke but it is frustrating to be always losing things.

    • lateblum says:

      I can’t help it, Tim. I’m stuck on laughing at this. It reminds me of when I got on a “cloverleaf” intersection on a state highway and kept going round and round until I finally got off and flagged a state trooper to ask for help. I had tears streaming down my face from laughing so hard. I could almost not sound sane when I was speaking to her. Btw, it was a newly constructed intersection/cloverleaf. It was night time and the lighting was nearly non-existent. I had never driven this road before. I still tear up with laughter as I recall this experience. Thankfully I was with a friend who also laughs just as hard whenever he remembers it.

  43. Somebody says:

    A wee bit of a funny. We went out and about yesterday with my son and grandkids. We had lunch at a local place we all enjoy on the deck and then headed to a couple of local stores. We were in search of boots for the girls, they love boots and can only wear them during our short “winter”, which most of you would consider fall.

    I had picked up boots a size larger than the shoes I got the girls for back to school. They’re shoe size has actually gone up 3 to 4 sizes😲 depending on which one. They’ve all grown taller, same size clothes fit, but 2 of the 3 are too tall, pants are high 💧, we’ve got to go up a size and move to slims.

    So we drag the girls from store to store, they’re girls so they enjoy shopping. Hubby and I are there, so they get everything they want. Hubby and I manage to just about wrap up their Christmas too, a few odds and ends to add, but mostly done😁

    4pm rolls around and my middle grandchild, the quiet one, the shy one, full on revolts. Not because she doesn’t like shopping or isn’t happy with all her new things. She revolts because she refuses to put on her mask. She goes OFF on a tirade worthy of yours truly🤣🤣🤣 She’s in second grade, but has some definite ideas about being masked and all things virus related. She did not get it from me, I’ve not been around them enough to have such influence specific to covid. I doubt it’s from my son, he’s really not a political type guy. I assume it’s her own intellect or conversations with peers at school, maybe her teacher??

    All I know is it made my day🤣🤣 My son was very obviously shocked, speechless in fact🤣🤣 As you might guess I wasn’t and I might have encouraged her a bit, which annoyed my son. The oldest grandchild is definitely going to become a democrat sheeple if I don’t do something🤔 She was preaching conformity and talking up the scary virus. Middle one, who loves, admires and looks up to oldest was NOT having it. She cut her older sister to the quick. The youngest joined in agreement with the middle one. The younger two definitely are not going to be sheeple.

    I was quite surprised if you knew them you’d be surprised the middle one was the one that spoke up. She can surprise me from time to time, still waters run deep and all that. She’s quiet, but she doesn’t miss much. It was funny as all get out, happened in the parking lot, she amused her grandparents and strangers🤣 Basically she didn’t want to spend her weekend being muzzled. She has no choice but to be muzzled at school, but she should have a say in it on her weekend🤣🤣🤣

    The moral to the story, when 2nd graders revolt, when 2nd graders start calling bullshit on the rules, they’re losing. When 2nd graders point out hypocrisy and contradictions, you’re losing the masses. You can go here, but not there, you don’t need a mask sitting at table but stand up and you better have mask. Maybe she came up with this on her own and she’s an exception, but I have a feeling there are class and bus ride conversations happening.

    It made my weekend. Definitely have to work on the oldest😉 The funniest part is we were done shopping granddaughter just didn’t know it. Hubby and I both thoroughly enjoyed her rant though, we laughed all the way home.

    • elliesmom says:

      I had a conversation with Crash about how you can admire someone’s work without making the person a role model. It was actually about singers and other performers. Someone can sing like an angel but not be a very nice person kind of thing. I was giving her permission to admire someone’s talent in spite of not wanting to grow up to be like her. When she repeated parts of the conversation to her mother, my daughter made the assumption we had been talking about Kamala Harris, and that I had been saying vile things about Heels-Up. It was kind of funny when Crash overheard me call Harris that, and I left it to my daughter to explain what “Heels-Up” means.

      Who knows where your granddaughter got her internal permission to disagree with the authority she has to live under, but bravo! for her. I’d put my money on genetics. I used to be surprised at how many personality traits skip a generation, but now I just accept it. I am much more like the grandmother I knew than like my mother, and I’m the spitting image of the one who died long before I was born. I find it delicious when Crash reminds me more of me than of her mother. 😉

      I’d love for Calamity to revolt – especially in this way. Neither she(1st grade) nor her big sis (4th grade) want to do anything to upset their parents. The most rebellious Calamity is, concerns arithmetic. She “hates” it. Almost nothing I have said has softened that stance. I think she feels unable to be “smart” like her sister. At least that’s what she has told me.

      I don’t ever voice my political, spiritual, or socio-political perspectives unless asked. They are almost always in opposition to their parents these days. Of course, when I was a brainwashed Democrat, I could say anything.

      I never gave orders to my kid with the justification, “Because I said so!”, but instead explained the reasons for things, so he always understood the why’s of things, & knew I had his best interests in mind. Because of that trust, he’d obey in the rare cases when I’d bark an order because there wasn’t time to explain, knowing I’d explain it as soon as I could.

          When I taught astronomy, one of the problems I worked on with the kids was to figure out the smallest crater you can see on the moon with the naked eye. A similar problem is to figure out the smallest thing a satellite circling the Earth can read. The kids were amazed that things like license plates and street signs were child’s play for our surveillance satellites.

      GWB was always a goofy, huggable sort of guy, I wonder why Kerry/Edwards couldn’t beat him?

      • Somebody says:

        It was a tight race, Kerry is a pompous ass and the whole swift boat thing hurt him. I always thought the D’s would have been better off reversing that ticket. John Edward’s had a lot more charisma, he was better looking and had a better personal story, not to mention a better chance of carrying the south

        Times were different though, we had been attacked, we were at war. Americans generally don’t like to change CIC during war times.

        I never understood and still don’t understand the “Who would you rather have a beer with?” concept. Remember that?

        • lateblum says:

          I completely agree with your comment. I remember working on Kerry campaign – AFTER – he “won” the nomination. Before that I was a John Edwards girl. His story, his Two America’s, his charisma, wife and children were the complete package. Frankly, I couldn’t stand Kerry. But I was so opposed to GWB that I gave entire weekends and the entire week preceding the election to working for the ticket.
          I worked in Wisconsin for the Dems after working my hospital day job in Chicago. It was the only time I filed an absentee ballot . . . because I was working for the democrats. People were convinced Kerry would win. I left Madison on election night. I just wanted to celebrate – or not – in my own home and my own bed. I heard the results on my car radio while I sat in a Wisconsin rest area because I was so tired.
          I said – to the radio – “I told you to run Edwards!!!” I was pretty upset and angry.

          And I do remember the “wanna have a beer with” I wouldn’t have wanted to have a beer or a drink of water with ANY of the candidates except Sarah. So there’s that.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Yep, had that Kerry/Edwards ticket been reversed?! Nobody I knew liked Kerry, but loved JRE. Pretty much let it be known if he didn’t pick Edwards for VP, we’d be voting for GWB.

            Defending Kerry was impossible, he had so many flaws, Theresa only talked about her deceased husband on the campaign trail (liked her, but OMG, train wreck). JRE was outdrawing Kerry on the campaign trail, so they put him on a more rural and remote schedule. Dumbasses. Pretty much what the GOP did to Sarah in 2008.

            Edwards – Palin – Trump, I don’t know how either party could top my interest in politics again. 😀

          I think the beer thing is for people who don’t care politically. They are going to vote the local races so they will fill out the whole ballot but the find both parties unresponsive to real people and completely corrupt. So who would you hang with might be some basis for their vote. You have to fill out something or a corrupt Democrat election staff will fill out your ballot for you.

    • Gram Krakka says:

      Good read. Oh the irony. Obama acknowledges that Chicago politicians commit voter fraud. Obama makes the case for Trump to challenge the 2020 election.

      Hypocrisy Alert: Obama Won First Election By Challenging Voter Fraud
      By Jack Cashill

      One supporter said of the signatures on Alice Palmer’s petition: “They’re terrible. Worst I’ve ever seen. All those Negroes who were trying to bully you out of the race, they didn’t bother actually doing the work. This could get her knocked off the ballot.”

      Writes Obama: “It was true; the petitions Alice had submitted appeared to be filled with invalid signatures: people whose addresses were outside the district, multiple signatures with different names but the same handwriting.”

      When Obama wavered about challenging Palmer’s signatures, a fellow supporter upbraided him. “If you let this go, you might as well go back to being a professor and whatnot, ’cause politics is not for you,” she told him. “You will get chewed up and won’t be doing anybody a damn bit of good.”

      Obama filed a challenge with the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners. Not only did the challenge take out Palmer, but it also eliminated “several other Democrats with bad petitions.” Obama ran unopposed in the Democratic primary and faced only token Republican opposition in the general election. A career was born.

      “Whatever vision I had for a more noble kind of politics,” writes Obama in his memoir, “it would have to wait.” That day has never come. Democratic politics in particular remain as mired in corruption as they were when Obama first ran for office 25 years ago, and he knows this.

      Trump has chosen to tackle this swamp monster head on. If Obama were not such a flaming hypocrite, he would applaud the effort. “If you let this go,” an honest Obama would tell Trump, “you won’t be doing anybody a damn bit of good.”

      Here is the statement about the person just featured in the campaign presser: “Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

      If B.F. Skinner was right that “chaos breeds geniuses,” the Trump legal team will soon be given Mensa status.

      We previously discussed how the Trump lawyers and campaign could find themselves faced with defamation suits. Given the highlighting of Powell and her allegations at the campaign press conference, such separation might not offer complete tort protection.
      Is Dominion Going To Sue The Trump Team?
      The press conference held by the Trump legal team was not for the faint of heart. The team alleged a global, Communist-backed conspiracy to “inject” and “change” votes.

    Understanding the left’s plan for a ‘Great Reset’ By Andrea Widburg

    The term “the great reset” is suddenly en vogue. For leftists, it’s shorthand for using the systemic change flowing from the world’s response to the Wuhan virus as a springboard for remaking the world in a leftist, greenie mold. Or as Rahm Emanuel said, never let a crisis go to waste.

    The left has wanted to break the system for 55 years. Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, two professors of social work at Columbia University, first articulated the idea in a paper for The Nation, entitled, “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty.”
    At bottom, the only thing that will distinguish this Brave New reset world from the Middle Ages, given that the ultimate plan is to roll back the industrial era, will be that what little energy is still produced will be used for computers to control us. Otherwise, the world will be home to absolute monarchs and serfs.

    Stripped of its cult-like language, the Reset is a typical leftist Utopian project. As with all such projects, it will fail – but not before the world first welters in blood, pain, and death. We’d better hope Trump really released the Kraken, or else there are ugly times ahead.

    Like most things, this “Great Reset” has been tried before – under the name “Great Leap Forward”.
    Want to know how successful it was ? Look it up.

    What Is the Great Leap Forward?
    The Great Leap Forward was a five-year plan of forced agricultural collectivization and rural industrialization that was instituted by the Chinese Communist Party in 1958, which resulted in a sharp contraction in the Chinese economy and between 30 to 55 million deaths by starvation, execution, torture, forced labor, and suicide out of desperation. It was the largest single, non-wartime campaign of mass killing in human history.

    I was hesitant to use my real name on social media and even more so regarding the brat. I was ejaculated from twitter. I don’t doubt @Jack would have me on a list to give to AO C if she so desires. I had refrained from pics of my brat. Kid posts herself non stop so it is feckless to hide. I am proud of her! I can post she is my geek but really an adult at 14. She can drive???
    i always hated shitbook, but i wonder what effect lockdown has had
    I have been a regular at this hole for as years. I feel like I know some of you better because of facebook. It’s just different. I know Jadzia’s story about having hippie parents. She has always fascinated me living in France and studying law. A pic with her long brown tresses changed things. More affection? I log in and swannie likes a post it makes me feel good. I have since forever held elliesmom in esteem. She is one bad assed teacher. I got a brat. Education is very high on my list. I treasured Elliesmom with anonymity. I am now in awe because facebook gIves me a chance to know a tad bit more. I will never knit or watch gay sissy boys dance on ice but I will go Shakes and think on thee when I see such atrocities. I might have to try and knit. I hate the act so I have to try. Me knitting??
    I have taken a long dusty road to be me. I am 53. Many turned away from the f a g g ot in 1984. There is another story now. I was beaten and urinated on. Some things took place in my house. That was then this is now. I have to forgive. What am I if choose to just be angry. I can’t live a life of hate. I have seen too much. I got sentenced to 9 months in rehab. I met a guy who lived as a mole person. His skin was stained with soot. Filthy garbage person that smelled like shit. He had stunning blue eyes.
    He was 14 same age as my brat. His mom waited for the school bus for him to get off the bus and then in front of him she jumped. He blamed himself and lived in the subway. He had no teeth. I did not let him drown. I have seen the abyss. I was court ordered to rehab. I was on drugs and I walked into a parked ambulance in front of Bellview. Oh yeah I fought with the stationary vehicle. I got arrested. Two weeks at a psych ward then i was given a token to a crisis center on Saten Island a few weeks there then 28 days at South Beach. Then nine months of rehab. I could not get foodstamps. I bought a bike from walmart and I collected cans to eat. I kneaded dough and made kick ass pizza. I made killer cash collecting cans.
    Richie had been tossed around in prison. He refused to bathe or change socks he decided to stink rather than be raped. I lived with him. Lots of men took the exit ramp. I did not. No one dared touch me. I got me a very spoiled brat. I earned it.

    • elliesmom says:

      My dad learned to knit in the Army as a stress-reliever. When my mom started having a hard time managing her needles, I bought her a knitting machine. She never quite got the hang of it, but he did. My father-in-law did gorgeous needlepoint. I have a large needlepoint lighthouse on the wall in my entry way. His initials and mine were the same, and people coming into my house think I did it, but it was all him. He saw Rosey Grier on a morning talk show demonstrating needlepoint and decided to try it. My son-in-law sews better than my daughter does. Several of the men in my life know their way around a kitchen. My dad used to introduce my younger brother and me as “My son, the poet, and my daughter, the engineer.” When you grow up on a farm, there are just things that need to be done, not girl chores and boy chores. It’s very freeing.

        Ditto. Somehow, this “being explained on Twitter” doesn’t exactly fill me with confidence. Other than the disclaimer about her not representing PDJT, was there any other info? Like why she’s been distanced? I haven’t seen anything elaborating on that. Have you?

      I don’t exactly know what to make of it. She’s never claimed to represent POTUS in this, only the people. She set up a non-profit has said this is about election integrity for all elections. Ditto Lin Wood. However, Sidney was featured at news conference Lin Wood wasn’t even there.

      I know Powell represents Flynn and that judge was up her ass about her contacts and conversations with POTUS and WH people. I kind of think it has to do with that. To keep her and Flynn out of some kind of legal jeopardy. I don’t know that, but it’s either that or the WH has decided she’s batshit crazy and want to distance. I guess we’ll find out.

      • taw46 says:

        I think there were probably technical and legal reasons that the Trump team had to make clear that she was NOT a paid member of the campaign team. After all, she is stating that many in government were aware of what happened. I do not think she is crazy. I have watched her for years on FOX, she has an impeccable reputation. I do not think she would risk that if she did not have solid evidence. Whether or not anything is done about it is another matter.

        Don’t forget she has exposed federal corruption before, they probably would like to see her destroyed. (both in the Flynn case and in her book, Licenses to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice).

      • mcnorman says:

        Could it be a matter of not allowing all cards on the table (disclosure)? If they are separate, they have different routes to proceed with. IDK. Flynn and Powell have client attorney privilege. He knows where all the bodies are buried.

        • mcnorman says:

          And then there are these thoughts…

          ,,,both Michael Flynn and Lin Wood seem to be stating that the separation involves the issue of fees being subject to government regulation. If Powell were not part of the official Trump legal team then she would have a freer hand insofar as how and what she is going after.

          John Kennedy Toole committed suicide before the book was published. His mom hounded Walker Percy to read it.

It went on after he got it published to win the Pulitzer. It’s sexist, racist, homophobic. It reminded me a bit of Don Quioxte. It is absurd and New Orleans itself is one of the characters.

      Amen! It’s time we all did this. The original lockdown was supposed to be for two weeks. Its 8 months later. If the numbers haven’t responded, then lockdowns are not an effective means to manage the WuFlu. This isn’t about health – its about ceding control over every aspect of our lives to a government that has been derelict in its duty to manage this pandemic for political gain rather than the personal safety and wellbeing of its citizens. Enough is enough

      • lateblum says:

        I agree. 2 weeks =/= 8 months. And when I say it isn’t about health, but about govt control over us and to lower our threshold to resist dominance by the state, they tell me I must’ve had a stroke or brain aneurism to think such things. My thoughts about the “coincidence” that this all happened the year of the presidential election are seen as crazy by my family and friends. I suppose I ought to be grateful they are still even allowing me the use of my last name.
        Yet they are normal for thinking that having a “cocktail” over a fire pit in 40° weather with possible snow on the ground, lest we contaminate one another by being indoors? This is more than absurd.
        They can’t tell me one positive thing about Biden – except “He’s not .Trump”. They can’t tell me one good thing about PDJT. But, he pulled us out of the Iran deal and out of the climate accord. He ruined the lives of small farmers and enriched his billionaire friends. They can’t give me proof of that, though. But they “read it in the NYT” they won’t listen to anything from Breitbart. They call Fox evil and think that although CNN lies, it’s better than Fox. Rachel Maddow is a goddess.

  72. Gram Krakka says:

    Jonathon Turley wrote that Dominion could file a lawsuit against Sydney Powell for claiming communist countries and Dominion deliberately changed votes electronically for Trump to Biden. They might also be able to file a lawsuit against Trump because of her appearance and claims at the press conference with Rudy. He indicated that Trump’s team clarifying that she is not representing Trump after the fact might not be enough to protect him in court, especially since he has repeated some of her claims.

    Trump’s lawyer’s filings seem to be more based on equal protection of in-person voters versus mail-in voters. Election laws made by State legislatures were not enforced by judges, governors and election officials in favor of mail-in voters such as ineligible ballots being “cured”, acceptance after Election Day, thousands of ballots that only voted for Biden with no down-ballot votes, etc.

    The 64 million dollar question is will the Supremes take up any of Trump’s team’s cases if they don’t prove beforehand that their cases involve enough votes to change the outcome. It feels like they have to prove the case before even getting their day in court. Feels like ‘cart before the horse’ kind of thing.

    By Trump challenging the states and bringing to light just how easy it is to commit fraud either electronically or with mail-in ballots, the states with Republican controlled legislatures hopefully will feel pressured to make the changes to election laws and equipment that are needed to restore confidence that our elections are conducted fairly before the 2022 elections. Sadly, I’m not feeling very optimistic that will happen.

    This election will join the 1960 election and the JFK assassination as the subject of conspiracy theories for decades to come.

      Little known fact: Marilyn was actually the illegitimate grandson of Lord Canarvon. They tried hushing this up so as not to detract from Canarvon’s archeological discovery. They had his gender reassigned and put (then) her up for adoption to obscure discovery of his/her true identity. She was the world’s first successful gender reassignment, paving the way for Christine Jorgensen. Don’t tell anyone, or you’ll be smited with Tut’s curse.

  74. Dora says:


    I agree with the campaign’s statement that I am not part of the campaign’s legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees.

    My intent has always been to expose all the fraud I could find and let the chips fall where they may–whether it be upon Republicans or Democrats.

    The evidence I’m compiling is overwhelming that this software tool was used to shift millions of votes from President Trump and other Republican candidates to Biden and other Democrat candidates. We are proceeding to prepare our lawsuit and plan to file it this week. It will be epic.

    • Constance says:

      I heard she plans to take out RINOs along with the Democrats. Trump is currently the head of the Republican party and can’t get on board with taking out Republicans if he hopes to lead Republicans. At any rate Sidney is 65, she has had a great career and I don’t think she wants to be bogged down right now. She doesn’t need the money or anything else she wants a complete take down.
