Bullshit Level: INSANE

This is pure bullshit.


There is way too much bullshit flying around right now. It’s like the Mother of All Tornadoes hit the Father of All Dairy Farms. It is being flung in all directions from every point on the compass.

I’m not gonna censor anyone unless they start posting racist trash or the like, but a good rule of thumb is DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING you read or hear on the internet right now unless you see actual videos or it is independently verified.

If you can’t see it or hear it with your own eyes and ears, then don’t believe it. That goes for good news and bad news.


Speaking of bullshit, I spent most of Thursday morning making a big Turkey Day dinner for Mom and me. I told her we would eat at noon. At 11:45 am all I had let to do was make instant gravy and some Stove-Top stuffing and then start carving the best turkey I ever cooked.

That’s when Mom announced she was going to put on her pajamas and go to bed. And she did.

    You gotta love your mother. ❤

    • mcnorman says:


      Klown, you should be keeping a journal. These are the moments that gift the heart continuously.

    • Constance says:

      Yikes. Well I bet the food was still delicious and she’s probably enjoying the left overs.

      • Somebody says:

        That’s what I was thinking, Klown mom had plenty of left overs to 😉

        Klown, my mother is in rehab. My sister cooked a big Thanksgiving Day spread, two in fact. A large one she put on the table for her husband, his two sons and their families. Also a small one baked in 8×8 pans, a turkey breast, etc.

        She loaded up the small meal, told everyone at her house goodbye and went to the rehab hospital to have Thanksgiving with mom. After a lot of coaxing, mom took a bite of the sweet potatoes on her plate and announced she wanted to take a nap. After a bit of disappointment chatter from my sister she begrudgingly took a second tiny bite and announced she was done, visitation was over, she want to go to sleep.

        She was asleep before my sister could finish packing up all the still warm food. Sis loaded her car, came back in and kissed mom on the forehead and left. Mom didn’t even budge, she was soundly asleep.

        I told you that story so you’d know you weren’t alone. God bless both of you for everything you do and for your kindness and patience.

        • The way I figure it is Mom is just getting even for all the rotten things I did as a kid. I’m still way ahead on points.

          • Miranda says:

            You are a wonderful son to her and should be proud, especially on days that are hard. I know a lot, if not most, are.

            {{{Klown}}} ❤

          • lateblum says:

            Aww, Klown, this may be one of your fondest memories in the long run. And you’ll smile and laugh and cry all at once when you think about it. You are a dear son and even though your mom may not be aware of how much you’ve done for her, we know. And her quality of life is really good because of you. I hope that after mom went to bed, you were able to sit down, enjoy some really good food and relax.
            She is blessed to have you in her life and you are so lucky to be able to give her the love and attention that you do.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Yes! ❤

    • I got rid of my Facebook and twitter accounts and I am leaving WordPress.com soon too due to the censorship bullshit. In case you didn’t know, wordpress.com ordered Treehouse, one of the premier conservative websites, to leave by Dec 6th so wordpress.com is part of the censorship bullshit too.

  3. Your mother did a classic bullshit move to deprive you of the satisfaction of your accomplishment in making the dinner. Be sure to tell her and then never ever bother with doing that again unless you have others around you so you can just let her behave that way, ignore her, and still have a nice time with people who are worth your time.

    • elliesmom says:

      The Klown’s mom is elderly and in the early stages of dementia. It’s more likely her internal biological clock is completely out of whack than that she meant to hurt her son’s feelings. But you obviously have some personal issues with your relationship with your mother. It’s best not to project them on others. I hope you had a great holiday with people who appreciate you enough for you to deign to have them around.

      • Somebody says:

        Thank you EM😘

      • Anthony says:

        Thanks from me too. You took my exact thoughts and expressed them so much more delicately than my foul mouth could have

        • ginainmo says:

          Ditto from me. I couldn’t see my mom this Thanksgiving because the memory-care center she lives in has active Covid cases, but last year she threw a tantrum worthy of a 2-year-old over a tribal issue.

          Prior to dementia, she would never have acted out in front of others.
          Dementia is a horrible disease. Blessed be the caregivers.

      • And you know squat about my life. You know squat about me. Who’s projecting? When the author tells me her mother did this just because she has dementia I’ll accept it. Until then my comment stands. My mother hated me and made my life a living hell and when people are abusive, mean, manipulative or otherwise awful I don’t make excuses and enable them.

    • lyn5 says:

      Nope. My father has dementia, and I always agree with whatever he says when I visit with him on the phone. (He lives in a care facility in another state.) If I were in the Klown’s shoes, I would tuck my mother in, kiss her forehead and then enjoy the meal I cooked.

    • Constance says:

      It’s hard to believe but a time will come when you will cherish this memory. One of my favorite memories now is a day I went to visit my dad in the nursing home. He had been not very responsive but this day he sat up and he was carrying on a really normal conversation with me and actually eating his food. At one point a nurse came in and said “Well look at you! Sitting there have a nice conversation I see.” My Dad said “Yes! I don’t know who this woman is but she is so nice and she knows my family!”. He died two days later.

    • Underwhelmed says:

      Looks like you’re new here. Why not just sit back and get to know the people who’ve been here a very long time before you mouth off with that kind of advice?

    • jadzia1971 says:

      I am an excellent cook and my dad, whose palate ran more (okay, exclusively) to fast food, routinely refused to eat meals that I knocked myself out cooking for him. He died in 2016 and how I wish I could have 10 more minutes trying to coax him to JUST TRY A BITE, GODDAMNIT.

  6. elliesmom says:

    I hope you went ahead and carved your turkey and enjoyed your dinner anyway. She could join you for the leftovers when she was ready. I found it was easier to live with someone who wasn’t quite the same person I was used to if I just forged ahead with or without him. The great thing about turkey is the leftovers are actually better. When I had his company for a meal, I enjoyed it. When I didn’t have his company, I found ways to enjoy eating alone. But I didn’t let his deciding he wasn’t feeling sociable or his internal clock being out of whack spoil my meal. It’s when I discovered there are some nice boxed wines out there that don’t require anyone to share them. Hugs to your mom. Let her know it’s OK to come to the dinner table in her pjs. Patience to you. It doesn’t get easier, but it does get to place that feels “normal”.

  7. Gram Kraken says:

    Totally agree Klown, there is a lot of BE (bovine excrement) on the intertubes, especially now. Always appreciate that you don’t let this place get sucked into the vortex of wild eyed conspiracy theories. And keeping the trolls out really helps keep comments from descending into personal attacks. You and your crew and regulars are my goto source for reliable info on what is really going on in politics. I am thankful for everyone here.

    Sorry about your mom’s cognitive and physical decline affecting your Thanksgiving dinner prep and plans. You are a good son. Hopefully your children will be there for you, should you ever need their help. You are providing a good example for them.

  8. Dora says:

  9. votermom says:

    God bless you, Klown, for taking care of your Mom at home.
    It would be a nightmare for her if she were stuck in a nursing home this year.

  10. Anthony says:

    Sometimes its like that, Klown. Gotta roll with whatever happens lovingly and unselfishly. You’ve got that part down pat. Happy Thanksgiving

  11. Underwhelmed says:

    Klown, your patience and compassion in a difficult situation are humbling. Bless you and your mother.

    • Jentx says:

      Despite it being sometimes hard to work with people with dementia I find them for the most part to be smarter and more honest than the average person without dementia so sometimes I actually prefer being around them. If you accept the fact that things will be a little cray cray sometimes and laughter is the best medicine it can actually work. I hope she enjoyed the leftovers.

  12. Everyone who doesn’t have TDS was talking about this 8 months ago.

      • elliesmom says:

        My own guess is killing grandma was a powerful image you can use to control people. Even little kids are afraid if they “break the rules”, they might kill their grandparents. Older people were more likely to die from anything that resembles a bad flu so they push the numbers up quickly, and many of them are having their stay in nursing homes subsidized with state funds. It’s a twofer. You get to kill off people who are already a drain on state funds and discourage people from moving their elderly relatives in. My cousins in Canada have a clearer perspective on the role government finances have had on pandemic policies because their government is in control of not just old people’s healthcare, but everyone’s. There has been clear rationing going on there.

      • Miranda says:

        Australia isn’t even allowing people to walk their dogs. I don’t *want* to be like Australia.

    • John Denney says:

      Can confirm. A friend is property manager at a retirement home that of course has been in lockdown since March.
      At least one of her residents just faded away and died of loneliness & inactivity, confined to her room with no visitors.

    • Somebody says:

      I know I was. My mom was isolated. On the 4th of July, knowing most of the regular staff would have the day off and a lot of Temps would be brought in (let that sink in🙄). I snuck on to the property at shift change, dressed in scrubs with a mask on🤣 I didn’t stay long and I exited out the back.

      Thankfully the rules here allowed my sister to transition my mother and then my sister transitioned to a position in order to continue to see my mother. Sis has had to undergo routine testing which until recently was taking up a half to a full day every week. The facility now is able to do its own testing.

      They opened up visitation here a couple of months ago, but it is very limited and there is a long waiting list. You are given a rapid test, once negative you proceed to an outdoor area set up. You are draped in a makeshift hazmat suit made of old shower curtains it appears. You must be gloved and masked. You are seated 6 feet from your loved one and there is plexiglass in case you dare to break the 6 feet rule. A staff member stays on the other side with your loved one. The “visit” is exactly 15 minutes, then you and your loved one are escorted away. Doesn’t that sound inviting?🙄

      This rehab hospital where my mom is now allows immediate family to visit. They do temp scans and require a mask and visits are limited, although they haven’t enforced the 30 minutes. So my brother and I have had a chance to actually see mom, hold her hand, hug her and kiss her. We’re taking advantage of it while she’s there. We certainly regret the circumstances that put her there, but we’re thankful to be able to see her and talk to her.

      I honestly and truly understand the purpose is trying to protect the elderly, but the impacts have been horrible for the elderly and their families. Many of these facilities now have rapid test equipment, but they clearly they don’t trust them 100%, hence the crazy visitation set ups.

      I’m hoping between the vaccines and the distribution of rapid tests, these draconian measures will go away. I fear even with those, things could get far worse in a Biden administration 😪

    • Anthony says:

      I can vouch for that. If it didn’t make me so sad I’d be infuriated. Hopefully my sadness will be allayed by time sooner rather than later, and you may see me on the evening news. In handcuffs. Doing my own unique perp swagger. Not giving One. Single. Fuck.

  13. John Denney says:

    Back in the early 70’s when I was stationed at French Frigate Shoals Coast Guard Loran Station, we had some construction workers rebuilding the station, because it had been damaged by the previous years storms.
    My buddy Engineman Ric Altman talked to one of them, Johnny, who knew a place off the coast of one of the main islands where he could dive down with an empty jar & come up with it full off fresh water.

        There were protests in my town, too. The eco-geniuses who are now in power–and I’m specifically referring to the mayor–decided it would be a great idea to JOIN the protest. Which blocked access to all the small businesses downtown that have been shut for MONTHS during the lockdowns–on the first day they were allowed to reopen.

    State Legislatures are uniquely qualified and positioned to hold hearings on election irregularities and fraud before electors are chosen. As established in Article 2, Section 1.2 of the United States Constitution, State Legislatures have the sole authority to select their representatives to the Electoral College, providing a critical safeguard against voter fraud and election manipulation.


  20. elliesmom says:

    One of the idiotic conversations being passed around on Facebook is a “concern” Trump will stage a rally in DC to coincide with Biden’s inauguration. Like Trump would need to plan a rally. He can spend the day playing golf, and his supporters will stage that rally. They’ve been holding boat parades, truck convoys, and dance parties all year without any input from Trump or his campaign. Don’t I remember the Democrats spent a whole week marching and giving speeches in DC during Trump’s inauguration? Didn’t they threaten to gas his supporters who tried to attend their own inaugural ball? Isn’t that when the “nasty women” held their march? They’re also worried Trump will sell secrets to pay off his debts. Isn’t Biden the one who is beholden to foreign governments? If you drop an “Are you sure there’s going to be a Biden inauguration?”, they go ballistic. I have to be careful because pulling their chains is too much fun.

      • jentx says:

        You really want to trigger these peeps tell them that the toilet paper shortage is our fault we are buying it pad the cells because prisons are going to have to double for mental hospitals when the news comes out that Biden didn’t win and Trump is and will always be the 45th AND 46th President of the USA.

        • elliesmom says:

          If Trump stays in office for the next 4 years, then he will continue to be the 45th President of the USA. If Biden assumes office in January, and Trump runs again in 2024 and wins again, then Trump would be the 45th and the 47th President of the USA. But there is no way he can be the 45th and the 46th.

    • DeniseVB says:

      LOL, yasss, the Deploraball on Inaugural Eve ! The murder plot was broken up because you know how the left likes to brag about killing Nazis. Plus about 50 protesters showed up to try and kill us at the entrance, but the wonderful DC police provided safe entry. Totally one of the scariest fun nights I’ve ever had. The weekend was a total failure for the left to ruin it. They were ignored by everyone but the media.

      • Gram Kraken says:

        I’m with you – the news is depressing, disgusting and discouraging. I am generally a happy upbeat person and I personally will probably be OK. That is until I reach my shelf life expiration date at age 75 according to Dr Zeke, then it is off to the ice floe. I worry about the present and future for my daughter and grandkids. Where can they go to college and not be indoctrinated against and persecuted for their “white privilege”?

        If you have access to Netflix and need some unPC laughs, the 2015 British move Bad Education and 2012-2015 TV series is hilarious. You, Shay and her friends would probably really enjoy it. The movie “Yesterday” is also sweetly funny.

  26. DandyTIger says:

    Fun fact: state legislators only have to have reasonable doubt to not certify the election in their state. A number of battle ground and close states have GOP majority legislatures. And there is plenty of reasonable doubt. Doesn’t have to go to court, doesn’t have to be proven.

    • Somebody says:

      True, most are majority GOP but many are the spineless, nutless type so there’s that. Then there are the establishment, never-Trump kind. Finally there are some real stand up patriots. The question is how many of each? I’ve seen some profiles in courage, but not enough.

      If the situation was reversed the dems would have no worries about their legislators.

  27. DeniseVB says:

    No news for me, even my favorite journos on the right are getting boring and repetitive with nothingburgers that may or may not be important. The left is in total meltdown and want everybody else off social medias that don’t agree with them. So, I’m ignoring an awful lot of people and entertaining myself in other ways. For instance, I think rap battles were invented by women, most likely a wife and the other woman. This is so great………

        Personally I don’t trust this, especially the part about a deadly fight between military special forces and CIA operatives, and there don’t seem to be credible sources verifying this.
        I found this also, but saw that it was an hour long audio only and I am not able to listen for that long. This story is on other blogs that seem questionable to me. Like the Klown said there is a lot of BS being flung around.

      • Constance West says:

        Sidney P has said there was a raid in Germany weeks ago. US Military Intelligence took servers. These servers were CIA. CIA was not informed of the raid. Others but not Sidney have said when they got to the server building no one was there.

        • Constance says:

          This morning (Sunday) I just read that the 5 US soldiers who were supposedly killed in a crash in Egypt a few days after the election were actually killed while taking the CIA servers in Germany.

          DEFUND THE CIA!!

          • lateblum says:

            Where did you read that? One of the soldiers who was killed was from Illinois. The story the news reported here was he was participating in an )niter national training flight in Egypt. I’d believe your story before I’d believe the training flight story.

          • Constance says:

            It is supposedly coming from the most recent interview of Lt. General Mc Inerney and General Flynn also said something about it in his first interview. I haven’t listened to those but I’ll try to do it tonight. Meanwhile I hope this come through it is supposed to be 2 audio clips from the Mc Inerney interview.

    • votermom says:

      he says Sydney got the name Kraken from the nickname of the 305 military intelligence group
      (305th MI Battalion?)

      he says Special Forces raided a CIA facility in Frakfurt

      he says they (deep state?) were sending the battleground ballots thru the internet to Spain then Germany

      he speculates that maybe they were doing thus (going overseas) because he & Mary Fanning had gone on tv warning about Hammer & Scorecard

    • jentx says:

      Sad. Karl Rove said it will be ‘hard’ for Trump to prove he won. This is why the justice system is so lacking because if Trump can’t prove he won and Biden cheated with the massive amount of data that he has that is clear as day and easy to understand than no litigant has a chance at hell of justice. I pray Rove is wrong and America wins this one because she has to…she simply has to. My heart is crying all the time now for what we have lost and continue to lose–common sense, decency, honesty, empathy, courtesy, democracy, freedom.

      • Somebody says:

        I read somewhere that the PA Supreme Court dismissed the case rather than overturn lower court in order to keep plaintiff from appealing to SCOTUS.

        I’m not a lawyer, I have no idea if such a tactic would work. Hopefully someone that is an attorney will weigh in on whether a case that was dismissed can be appealed to SCOTUS.

        • Anthony says:

          • Woke Lola says:

            If I remember law school correctly–a big IF–my understanding is that prior to the election, they could have filed for an injunction, and after the election, they can sue on injury grounds. Keep in mind there’s a lot of stuff built into the system that protects the judiciary and government actors from the consequences of their choices. A lot of legal paths lead to cowardice and abdication.

            PA SC would have denied the injunction, surely, as no proof existed that any injury would occur. They’re using an arbitrary deadline right now to deny standing if I understand it correctly. If they had determined on the merits, they would have found the pleading lacking because of Deference, a bizarre legal theory where it is assumed all political actors and other judges are acting in good faith and have an understanding of constitutional principles (a ridiculous premise on its face in our current world). They don’t extend that kindness to criminal defendants, and the only way through that portal is through criminal investigations and prosecutions, something PA will never do because PA AG Josh Shapiro is himself deep into this web of crime. What to do when the chief LEO of a state is leading the crime spree?

            Another legal term that may apply here is res judicata. I wish I could find my old intro to jurisprudence textbook, because I do have a niggling memory of standing being a complicated point within the framework of that doctrine. I hope one of our attorneys does weigh in on this.

          • Anthony says:

            I hear you, but there has to be a party willing to take the heat. That’s a big ask in a world where one side has a war drum and has been beating it all summer. I don’t see state Republicans willing to take that kind of risk (tho I could be wrong, and hope I am). It takes powerful will from a judiciary actor to consider what’s right, and then they have to build consensus for that huge risk they’re willing to take. The people are willing to take those kinds of risks, but the whole of the bureaucracy in all it’s branches has nearly universally signaled in recent years that aren’t.

            The only thing currently keeping my hope is alive is the thought this could go SCOTUS, and Justice Thomas is given the opportunity to finally level the field and get direct transformative justice for himself and all conservative black Americans.

        • votermom says:

          all you need to know about the PA SC is they are a 5-2 Dem hack rubberstamp court that’s never upheld the OA Constitution vs Wolf so I totally expected this hackery.

    • Somebody says:

      A group of PA legislators led by state senator Mastriano held a hearing in a hotel in Gettysburg. The hearing was to allow Rudy Giuliani and POTUS’s other lawyers to put forth evidence of fraud. It was a 3 hour hearing with witnesses. Observers from around the state gave testimony as to what they had witnessed. It was only a sampling of the witnesses that have signed sworn affidavits, there are too many for all to have testified.

      A group from Michigan scheduled a similar hearing when PA scheduled theirs and then very quickly canceled it.

      After the PA hearing a group from Arizona scheduled a similar type hearing for Monday. Again it is at a hotel and is not an official hearing, although some argue it is and that PA’s was because members were present.

      Meanwhile the group in Michigan after hearing the PA evidence decided to move forward with a similar hearing. Then more members of the MI legislature expressed interest, enough so they think they can get together an official hearing in chambers of legislature. That last part I believe is still up in the air a bit, but one way or another in chamber or in a hotel conference room there will be an “airing of the evidence” in MI this week.

      After the PA hearing more legislators and state senators joined the ones that held the hearing to put together a resolution reclaiming the legislature’s constitutional right to select the electors. They are going to try and pass that on Monday, but their leadership is not on board. They are begging all PA residents to call their state reps and senators and urge them to vote yes on resolution.

      Another hurdle they have in PA the legislature session ends Monday at close of business. They must also extend the session or declare a special session. Otherwise even if the resolution was to pass they can’t convene until January and will not be able to select electors. Once again the leadership or most of it anyway, is not on board. They want it all to go away and to let Governor set the slate of electors. They don’t want to dirty their hands.

      Should all of that come to pass in PA, then the legislature could have a hurried special election. They could do their own audit, hold hearings and try to determine the amount of fraud, if any, and correct accordingly with the slate of electors. Or they could opt to ignore the election altogether and name a slate of electors for Biden or Trump or split them or send a slate to vote for Mickey Mouse.

    Climate Alarmists Push Biden to Declare a Climate Emergency

    Should former vice-president Joe Biden ultimately succeed in his bid for the U.S. presidency, he’ll face extreme pressure from climate alarmists. Far-left climate groups are pushing the potential president to declare a climate emergency, believing that such a move would free up Biden to ignore Congress to get more controversial climate action moving without resistance from Republicans or more moderate Democrats.

          There are still people on FNC who haven’t gone over to the darkside, but they’re not the top tier talent. Mark Steyn filled in for Tucker on Friday, and he was vicious toward Biden. Tammy Bruce is still firmly on Trump’s side. The problem is that to support them supports Fox.

          • Anthony says:

            I somewhat agree, but I’m not going to cut my nose off to spite my face. I’ve all but stopped tuning in to FNC since election night, but I really enjoy The Five, because each panelist represents dead center, center right, center left, far left, far right/libertarian points of view. However, I’ve switched it off when it becomes obvious that they’re following the new FNC format. Sometimes that happens in the first few minutes, sometimes longer. The longest I’ve lasted before involuntarily blurting “Fuck this” has been 29 minutes into the show.

            I tune into Tucker, only to immediately jump ship after the first 3 minutes. Baby steps lol. I did watch Mark Steyn, but switched off when a particularly repulsive guest came on.

            I’m enjoying Newsmax, particularly Stinchfield, Salcedo and Spicer. Little by little, I’m weaning myself off cable and getting used to streaming, but I refuse to deprive myself of guilty pleasures, particularly The Five

          • elliesmom says:

            I have a friend who is a producer on a popular local to Boston TV talk show. He explained to me how ratings are grabbed on a show. If you notice, a show with an hour talk format goes for longer stretches between commercial breaks in the first half hour than it does in the second. On some shows it seems like the second half hour is mostly commercials. Ratings are grabbed in the first five minutes to see if you tuned to the show, and then at the 15 or 20 minute mark to see if you stayed. People are most likely to change the channel at a commercial break so the producers plan fewer commercials in that first half hour. When I’ve watched the Five, I always feel like the second half hour is 50% commercials. Anything substantive they’re going to say happens in the first segments. That doesn’t mean I don’t find things they do in the second half fun, but there’s seldom much that’s controversial in that part. The last time I watched the Five, Jesse was showing off everyone’s old yearbook pictures. If you make it through the first half without throwing something at the TV screen, you’re probably home-free. 🙂

    Barely a week after it was found, Utah’s mystery obelisk has vanished.

    The tower of stainless steel in a remote alcove in San Juan County attracted international attention after wildlife biologists caught a glimpse of it from the air earlier this month. The obelisk even has its own Wikipedia page.

    Unfortunately for anyone who was hoping to make the pilgrimage to see it in person, it has disappeared.

    In interesting side effect of the the corruption and fraud in large Dem cities is the Dem party has rendered blacks in those cities as non people. Think about it, as 20+% moved towards Trump and the GOP, the Dem party could not let that stand, so they cheated. Priory to this they could count on the black vote and ignored them. The second they couldn’t count on them, they rendered them non people with no vote. The party that keeps blacks in their cities poor and killing each other and continuing massive abortions has gone a step further and eliminated their vote. Ah, the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and the KKK never changed.

    If you want to know what’s happening in the world, ask a bunch of 11-13 year olds. Ellie and I met a group of tween girls playing lacrosse down on the beach. In exchange for sharing their worldview, which included the election debacle, with me, I taught them what having a “504” in school means, and yes, even during the pandemic, their school has to follow it. I also taught them that when they turn 14, they are legally eligible to be at all school meetings involving them. They don’t have to be invited. They don’t know which house is mine so their parents will have to wait on the beach with their pitchforks, and I have clear view of the beach. Apparently, lots of teachers are calling in sick, and that means their whole class has to go into quarantine for 14 days if the teacher gets a positive test result. Positive test results can apparently be purchased. The girls finished up their second 14 day quarantine on Friday. One of them is being homeschooled because she failed remote 6th grade last year. Her 504 plan was ignored, and she was left hanging. A 504 plan is the one that’s covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act. I didn’t ask her what her disability is because it’s none on my business, but when I worked at the virtual high school, we spent a lot of time making our classes ADA compliant. They were bright, funny girls. They made me homesick for my classroom.

    Nah, I’ve got to cut it down or find wider material.

    Elliesmom, this is going to sound strange but I thought you’d be the best person to ask. My husband had an idea, a truly ghetto idea. His idea is instead of material to buy a tablecloth, preferably a heavy one in size 60×120. That would make it wide enough. Do you think a tablecloth would work the same and tuck around covered buttons the same as material? The fabric I bought was nice heavy upholstery material, but it’s not wide enough or I have to take 6 inches off the headboard. Just curious if you think it will work. If so, I could have saved a lot of money doing that in the first place.

    I watched the conclusion to “The Undoing” tonight. No big surprises, but a satisfactory ending.

    • Angie says:

      I watched too. Honest I think the story overall was a little boring. The most interesting characters were Donald Sutherland & the defense attorney & they didn’t get enough screentime IMO.

      • elliesmom says:

        I expected more, too They had a good cast. The series departed so much from the book it’s based on I expected them to do the Hollywood happy ending thing, and at least they didn’t do that. David Kelley murdered the book “Big Little Lies”, too, and after watching that series, I said I wasn’t going to watch any more HBO series made from books I like. But they changed the title this time, too, and I was part way through the series before I realized it was based on the book “You Should Have Known”. Reese Witherspoon, who produced “Big Little Lies”, has also bought “Where the Crawdads Sing” to turn it into a miniseries, and I’m absolutely going to skip that one. I really liked that book.

        • Angie says:

          I haven’t read any of the books so I’m not disappointed with the screen translation.
          Big Little Lies –best character by far was Laura Dern’s. I did enjoy the 1st one because of the acting & scenery but again –they took an interesting story and dragged it out to the point of making it boring. The 2nd season was terrible because I didn’t buy the whole Zoe Kravitz character’s guilt/depression. Also, WTF lie in the 1st place? You are allowed to use the same amount of force against someone who is harming another as the person being harmed can. Whatever, I try to suspend legal inaccuracies in order to enjoy shows, but don’t bore me on top.

          Same thing with The Undoing –the defense attorney never would have put the wife on the stand.

          I’ll probably end up watching the Crawdad one if Reese or Kidman are in. Now that these movie stars are reduced to doing TV, I can’t resist watching them, especially since there is so little good shows on TV.

          • elliesmom says:

            See, that’s the thing with “Big Little Lies”. They changed the story so much they lost the lies. But the book is really good. Liane Moriarity is one of my favorite authors. She’s Australian, and most of her books, including “Big Little Lies” are set in Australia. When they moved the story to Monterey, CA, they changed the whole dynamic of the characters. Suddenly, the action was happening in a wealthy conclave of parents who had their kids in a fancy private school. But that’s not who the characters are in the book, and their relationships to each other are accordingly different. When I saw Nicole Kidman was going to be in “Big Little Lies”, my first thought was, “Yay! She can be Australian for real!” Then they made her Californian.

            There is no trial in the book “The Undoing” is based on. So the defense lawyer is all David Kelley’s addition as are the courtroom scenes. They must have needed a role for a black actress. The Hugh Grant character is only in the very end of the book. The murder he commits sets the story in motion, but the story isn’t about him. “Where the Crawdads Sing” will star Daisy Edgar-Jones, and unless they make up new characters, there won’t be roles for actresses Reese Witherspoon or Nicole Kidman’s age. It’s a coming of age story, and they’re already “of age”. I can usually separate a book from its movie or TV adaptation in my mind enough to enjoy both, but when it’s a book I really like, and the screenwriter decides the story in the book isn’t good enough as is, I wonder why they chose the book to make a movie from. I love both “Big Little Lies” and “Where the Crawdads Sing” as is. Neither one needs Reese Witherspoon to “improve” on them.

      Fakhrizadeh was traveling in the middle of three bulletproof cars, with the killers striking after the first car entered a roundabout, the report said.

      A booby-trapped Nissan was then detonated to block the car behind Fakhrizadeh — as 12 gunmen pounced on him, arriving in a Hyundai Santa Fe and four motorbikes, Ahwaze tweeted.

      “After the car bomb was detonated, 12 operatives opened fire towards Fakhrizadeh’s car and the first protection vehicle,” his thread said.

      “According to Iranian leaks, the leader of the assassination team took Fakhrizadeh out of his car and shot him and made sure he was killed.”

      None of the hit squad were wounded or arrested during the gunbattle with the Iranian’s bodyguards, Ahwaze said.

I’m still getting how could I support Hillary in 2008 and “be mean” to Kamala Harris.

          Another parallel journey. In 2008, I volunteered for Hillary as well. Started out phone banking, then doing oppo research on the dog eater, which I shared on Jonathan Cifre’s “Savage Politics” blog as a guest writer before starting my own blog ‘The Sibyl Speaks’.

          Once she stepped aside in the R&B committee meeting, I took my hands off the wheel. No way was I going to vote for him because I found out too much about him via research. I too was called a racist, and could care less. Instead, I became a PUMA, until Amy Siskind appointed herself as the official face of that movement. Then, went to tge TEA Party, until Dick Army and his army of dicks took over that movement.

          Presently, I’m happily unaffiliated with either party, and have no time for idiots who insist I walk in lock step with either or any party. If the party isn’t good, then doing something ‘for the good of the party’ is a non starter for me.

      A lot of people think older people should switch to little dogs, but they’re actually a bigger hazzard than big dogs. Easier to trip over. Harder to see in the dark. If you want to pet them, they’re farther away from your hand. But it is possible to trip over a large dog like the Biden’s shepherds. Stairs are the most dangerous place. Ellie has been trained to go up and down a flight of stairs as far as the next landing and then wait for the signal she can move to the next one. Because ED was nervous with her behind him, she’s been trained to go first. She never gets very far ahead, but she’s not underfoot on the stairs. It would be OK with me if she ran up or down the whole flight of stairs ahead of me, but it took time to teach her not to, and someday I may need her to wait for me. Hank hasn’t been trained to do it, and I do notice he’s a bit harder to manage on the long flight of outside stairs to my driveway. The biggest dog hazzard for me is trying to get up out of a chair or out of bed with two dogs blocking the way. Sometimes it’s hard to find a place to put a foot. I don’t doubt Biden’s hurting himself had something to do with one of the dogs, but I don’t think they just CTScanned his foot.

        On another front I’m dealing with ring around the Rosies with Mayo. A surgery certification? You are due for your annual physical. OK, we’ll do both….no, no, no they are not the same. OK we’ll do physical and you give me certification based on physical. Oh no, no, no, surgical certification involves additional labs, an EKG and possibly other tests. Oh wow, great that sounds more thorough than what you call an annual physical, so we’ll do that and count it as both. We can’t do that🤪🤪🤪

        What I hear, yes we are full of shit, but we’ll never admit it even though you have called us on it, we simply want more money and we’ll fuck with you to get it.

Kick my smoking habit once and for all and continue on the “clean”, no to extremely low sugar and refined carbs eating path I’ve been on for over a year.

        Speaking of federal health insurance, if this appeal by my surgeon is unsuccessful guess what comes next for me? A different kind of appeal where I have to enlist my congressman or a senator as a sponsor. I’m not liking my odds, they didn’t give a shit about my 7 year old with leukemia or my six figures of debt in two weeks.

            The insurance company was paying the bills, but in the wrong child’s name (wrong daughter). Their names are not even close MNW for oldest SEW for youngest, just pure sloppiness on everyone’s part because the hospitals and doctors cashed the checks and then sent us bills and collection notices. We had to hire a high priced advocate to get it straightened out. We tried on our own, then had a local attorney send letters. That got us nowhere.

            My sister saw a segment on CNN, wrote down the name of the advocate and the company. In fact the head of the company that had been on CNN took on our case personally. We had all the documentation, everything. She was shocked that we were ignored, even more the attorney. She chewed ass, had us scheduled for rounds of national interviews. In the first 24 hours she took on our case it was resolved and we got apologies……gee thanks, wanted to hear sorry after you assholes ruined my credit, harassed us and put my child’s life in danger🙄

            The advocate said she had never, ever seen anything like it. Maybe one bill or two, but cancer treatment totalling hundreds of thousands? Nope never, especially when they had been notified over and over again.

            The advocate then moved on to have the legitimate six figures in pathology bills erased from early treatment before we switched insurance. We had what they had been paid by first insurance company, plus what we had added. We also had what they accepted as payment is full from new insurance company, which was far, far less than what they had already received, 14,000 less for bone marrow aspirate. She thought that was going to be a walk in the park. Nope, she got nowhere and was shocked. I wasn’t they are asshole🤣 They finally wrote off the last bit after 7 years. We paid $5 on every test, every month until then. That’s per test, we were paying a BIG chunk of change out monthly. We paid about 60% of it over those years.

          You shouldn’t have to be dealing with this shit. Doesn’t your insurance company have anyone to help you navigate through this?

            If my insurance company determines I’ll cost more than a certain amount I will be assigned a nurse case manager. I’m kind of hoping I won’t cost enough to warrant one. I’m hoping surgery and done. My daughter had a NCM for a couple of years and yes they are helpful, although I was always a little suspect of my daughter’s NCM.

            Lyn, we used to have Blue Cross, but we got royally screwed over on pathology. It’s a pit fall in this area. As far as I know Mayo pathology is covered because Mayo is an all or nothing provider. Every couple of years BCBS and Mayo butt heads and BCBS drops Mayo, sometimes for a few months, sometimes for years. Then they kiss and makeup, but if you’re a Mayo patient suddenly you don’t have coverage.

            We switched to Cigna because they have contracts with all pathology in the area and radiology. Radiology is another pitfall of BCBS. They negotiate contracts and exclude certain departments their favorites are pathology and radiology, but in GA I know someone that went to a PPC approved hospital with a heart attack. The pitfall there was ER, hospital was PPC, but not the ER at the hospital. So he had to pay a fortune for the services he got at the ER before being admitted.

            It varies by region, even varies within states and cities. Hopefully you never find one of those pitfalls, where this department isn’t covered. Since you have tri-care, I presume they pick up the slack in situations like that.

          • lyn5 says:

            We stayed with BC/BS as primary, because if a provider isn’t on any TriCare PPO or non-PPO list we pay 100 percent. That was too scary.

    this is not a good thing. it will be the same as the newspapers today. years ago there were many newspapers with independent thinking. then it went to maybe 6 corporations owning most newspapers and tv stations and look how information sharing changed for the worst.

      If Biden wins the steal a lot of people are saying the Dems will have wished he didn’t. The old resist and not my president cry babies will wish they were never born 😀 We’ll see, but it might be fun and Trump will be stronger than ever. Remember ….. When you strike at a king you must kill him. Metaphorical, of course, but I’ll play along 🙂

    President Elect Roy D. Mercer Mary Kathleen Moriarty • an hour ago

    According to the EO of 2018, they have 45 days to deliver findings. But I hope this week so we can all sleep better… Special Report from Camp David. His kids are all there safe and sound.

    They just certified the vote in AZ for Biden

    Is this true that?The state governor must sign a “Certificate of
    Ascertainment” that officially declares the SOS final vote certification
    as accepted and validates the identifies of the EC delegates that will
    vote in their respective state capital house chamber on Dec 14. EC
    delegates can be challenged all the way up to Jan 6, 2021.

    • Constance says:

      It is a crime to certify an obviously corrupt result. Not that anyone pays for crimes anymore but whoever did it can go to jail. Probably a woman because that is who Democrats use for crap like that.

      I haven’t been watching because of Juan, he is 1000% worse since the election. I did see it one day last week when he wasn’t there, and it was such a pleasant experience.

        His big lying mouth and his penchant for interrupting other panelists and bogarting their time (and getting away with it) is what ultimately brings me to the “Oh, fuck this” point of no return
