Then, that is not a Man Baby!!! 😆
On my tablet, I see nothing but white space. So older versions of IOS must perceive this as something that simply does compute.
Not on mine either.

Yep she sure did. 😆
Sharyl Attkisson said a new information system is in the works.
I’ve been thinking about the “shark lunchdates”. Other than on TV or behind glass at an aquarium, the vast majority of humans have never seen a shark. When sharks approach beach areas where humans enter the water, there’s no Jaws theme that starts playing. If the sharks aren’t hungry, and no one challenges them, they swim on by. If they’re noticed by humans, the beach gets closed for a bit. If it’s a very slow news day, locals might hear, “Horseneck Beach was closed for a couple of hours this afternoon because a herd of sharks were in the area”, but most days when it happens, there’s something much more important to report. People who share their recreational spaces with sharks and people who study them already differentiate between “an encounter” with a shark and an “attacking” shark. The only reason I can think of to create this fuss over how we refer to sharks as predators is to get sharks in the news at the height of beach season and to remind people the beach can be a scary place. Better they worry about the coast of Martha’s Vineyard than walking around their own neighborhoods.
We are very aware of Sharks in Ocean City, even though encounters are extremely rare, thank goodness.
Fishermen on Assateague Island haul them in all the time, and leave them on the beach, before taking them home. Just strolling down the beach on Assateague you can encounter a sizable shark, right after it has been caught, so you have to be aware they are there.
I have even thrown a baby shark, probably a nurse shark, not a great white or bull shark baby, that was about 2 feet long, back into the ocean after it was stranded up on the beach. It swam away and never said thanks!
I had my high school oceanography class at a beach just south of Boston. They were marking off the intertidal area to do a tidepool critter count, and they found a small shark, a juvenile, in one of the larger pools. After it was photographed at least 25 times, they carefully moved it past the low tide line into the ocean. I assured them when the tide came back in, the shark would have swum away on its own, but the shark had become a class mascot, and a couple of the girls were crying because “it’s so cute, and we cn’t let it die all alone.” Too many Disney movies. By the time the photos hit the internet, the shark had been enlarged somewhat. We all had to run for lives, and someone had lost a finger.
I love your photo. 🙂
It’s an attraction on the Ocean City boardwalk. It’s on the way to the famous Boardwalk fries, Thrashers.
Once more, with feeling If this works, you can see the shark head poking out on the other end of the building.

Even if Greg and Lisa were dead serious, how can the left blame the right if they want to be rid of the left? They’ve already called the right a basket of deplorable insurrectionists. The folks who live in the red states are much more self-sufficient. They have most of the farmland, the energy industry, several deep water ports. Premier medical centers, top tier educational institutions, military bases, and even the space program. What does the area of the country dominated by the left offer the right they can’t do themselves?
Hollywood? Wall Street? DC? Silicon Valley?
Just spit balling.
Although, this is kind of how Brexit started.
Not surprised, Are You? 👿

I am embarrassed that I was ever a democrat
How often have we said that.
I just shake my head at my naïveté.
(Which is also another word for stupidity.)
It’s a badge of shame. 😧
I think both parties used to be different. Old-school Dems would be moderate Republicans today.
Well Progressives are very clever at cheating. I don’t get why Republicans think the correct response to that is averting their eyes and pretending everything is fine. They either need to document and point out the cheating and hang a few people over it or they need to pile on and cheat like crazy and make a complete mockery of the entire system.
think more states will do this.
Obama’s doings! 😡
The class action settlement from BC/BS sets aside 677 million for the attorneys. What a brilliant scam that is. They sue on your behalf without letting you know. Reach a deal behind closed doors, you get a check that amounts to scraps and on top of that if you do not opt out you greatly diminish any chance of recourse with the company. You have to opt out to something you never opted into? If you do not file your claim number by deadline you also don’t get your happy meal money.
I got a different claim form from some other suit of which I was it seems an aggrieved party. It looked like junk mail. I only opened it because I was eating alone and it was something to read. I have to take all these steps to get out or stay in but in order to stay in I have to file. I lose if I do nothing. I looked up the settlement it is legit. I may get 300 tops. I will submit form because that money is going to someone and I am hardly going to sue over a ten year old data breach. I wonder how many people effected just throw notices away. It looked like junk mail to me. I get that a class action suit can empower the consumers who cannot go against a Goliath alone, but doesn’t 677 million dollars seem outrageous.
today some snowflake would find this racist

Lots of lies being spread! :evil!
Good idea! I’m stealing it!
First they came for the low-hanging fruit…
I don’t think your private thoughts are safe. Look at the book that is coming out about Trumps last month in the White House. They basically make up what he was thinking and “interviewed” 140 unnamed people and published a made up load of crap not equalled by Madcow herself. So Democrats just make up what you are thinking and believe they can persecute you for their projection.
There are two bands of thunderstorms coming from the west. The one to my south is passing through now. The sky is dark in that direction, and I can hear the thunder. It looks nasty, but doesn’t appear to be going to drop any rain on me. The one to the north of me is still in NY. My kids are driving back from Ohio in the middle of that one. I tried to talk them into taking a more southern route that would bring them across Connecticut instead of NY and western MA, but what do I know? I think they thought I was looking to send their dog home with them sooner rather than later, but she can move in forever now that she and I have come to an understanding about a few things. I just know that once he smells home, it would be hard to talk my son-in-law into getting a motel and finishing the drive tomorrow. There are flash flood warnings out for the Albany area.
Prayers they are safe
Safe travels to the kiddos.
My prayers are with them too.
Just said a prayer for their safe travel home.
Prayers for their safe travel.
No word since they got to New York, but I’m not worried yet. They said they expected to be at home before 10.
They’ve crossed the NY/MA line. It’s raining lightly for them now. They have one more band of storms to drive through before they reach home. They’re about 2 hours away at this point. There’s no way my son-in-law will find a place to spend the night now, but the Massachusetts Turnpike is a long straight road, and when they get off it, they’ll be very close to home. Thank you for all of the prayers. ❤
Glad it worked out but I know you were worried. We had bands of very strong storms with intense winds and a lot thunder and lightning here from 4 until around 9.
Prayers sent. ❤
The coverup! 👿

WOAH funny how the dem msm piss-boys missed this
how convenient for them
Not as convenient for the other people on the plane, since none of them looked like they were masked.

this guy is a good example of why the old question Is the pope Catholic is still asked.
Even though I took three years of Latin, I’ve never been to a Latin Mass. I would think that on the one hand, people aren’t necessarily able to understand the words, but since masses are mostly the same, it’s not hard to figure out. Also, there’s the Homily (sermon) that’s different every week, and I don’t know it that’s in Latin, too.
Latin is the language of the founders of the Church, but not of Catholics. You can say Hebrew is a Jewish language, but there are no places where Latin is spoken by a population. You can make the argument that Catholics should hear the mass in the language they understand. I also agree with those who think this is a move to stamp out tradition to increase the ability of the Pope to make sweeping decisions in a Catholic population that is less grounded in the history of the church.
The sermon is in the language of the location. Only the rituals are in Latin. What disturbs me most is the requirement a priest must get permission to say his private devotions in Latin. The Catholic Church where i used to live did one Latin mass a week. There were several masses to choose from. While I’m not Catholic, Father Reagan was a personal friend. He said he’d stop saying the Latin mass when people stopped coming to it.
I was taught that Latin was the universal language of the Mass and that it was meant to be the same everywhere so that “the faithful” felt “at home” wherever they were in the world. Most daily prayer (Mass) book that I ever owned had the Latin on one page and the corresponding translation on the page facing it. The prayer books that were found in the pews were also printed that same way. I, personally, loved having the Mass said in Latin. it was familiar and that no matter where I was, I knew what was being said. For me the sameness of the Latin Mass was comforting.
When I was in high school our choir sang for a Latin mass being held as part of one parish’s 100th anniversary. We then got requests from several other parishes and eventually hit almost all of the churches in the diocese.
It is very easy to follow and actually quite beautiful. the parishioners really enjoyed as it was the way they many remember mass for decades before the changes in the 1960s. My cousin and I loved it because as altos we finally got some of the really good parts to sing.
Faux Frankie is really getting in my nerves. I have always leaned more with the Protestant branch of the family in terms of faith and I see this man as anti Judea Christian and western culture as a whole let alone anti catholic. I am sure such thoughts might be uncomfortable for some of my very catholic relatives.
I’d bet my ultra Catholic family member find him as repulsive as I do. It’s my “liberal” leaning family members who think he’s the cat’s pajamas.
The Catholic relations in the east are Ds to the max.
The Protestant relations in the east are Rs or Is.
The Catholics in the west, even the California contingent, are Rs but are open to other views. Although the last couple governors or so have had them pulling their hair out as they see the state slipping faster and faster.
I have always been an I and I never knew how good a choice that was in terms of dealing the Ds both relations and in the work place although they preach like bible thumpers. I will say that the faux Rs that are really Ds and even Ss are often worse.
The Rs in the family have never pestered me over my politics even when I do not align with them 100%. Heck, they do not align themselves 100%. Better debates.
today’s wh really hates this country

A film that looks like Alien Dune III has won Cannes. Look forward to seeing “Titane” … which is probably made by Garbo’s great granddaughter Greta Gerwig with assists from various Bourbon uncles and cousins a la Affleck and Damon. Kudos everyone.
I guess the ignorant af clowns that make up Antifa never heard of the LAPD before.
We’re not in Portland anymore 🤣🤣🤣

They actually beat the shit out of them unlike cops elsewhere, who usually restrain themselves from using their clubs.
Keep in mind what’s happening at this protest: Antifa is explicitly and implicitly protesting for the right of an adult male to flash his penis to small children in a women’s spa
They’re only beating an idea. 🙂
Even after the Reagan-Bush years, the number of Americans in prison doubled under Tawana Bill. The highest incarceration rate in the world by far. Nurse Ratched in a gay man’s body. Textbook fascism.
That said, LA cops are acting for Tawana’s cameras half the time. LA riots. OJ Simpson. But Tawana’s racist incarceration rates are very real. Historical bigotry.
Out of curiosity I tried to calculate what the child tax credit means to poverty. Calculating for a family of 5 with one wage earner at 10 an hour. A rough estimate puts the EITC and additional tax credit at about 16000 a year. The only tax liability in my state would be local as state tax at the income would be forgiven. One still has to pay SS/Medicare and UIC on the 20,000 in earned wages. Rough estimate is 33,000 take home on 20,000 in earnings. That places the family just slightly above the poverty level of 31000. However, the tax credits are not used for determing benefit eligibility or poverty statistics. Federal stats would have that family at 20k. They could recieve a number of additional types of aid at that level. Health care, food stamps, childcare, energy and rent assistance, internet, cell phone, school lunches and breakfast.
I tried to run the numbers on state’s site. It tells me my fake family qualifies but does not give me hard figures. School food for 3 equals 3682 a year. Internet is 9.99A month. Low estimate is 500/year in savings there. I can’t calculate the exact amount of food stamps but it appears to be the max of 700ish. Say 7000year. Ignoring the tremendous savings of health coverage, utilities and rent. That is around a 1,000 a month.
So a family of 5 takes home 33000 on 20,000 in earnings plus an additional minimum of 12,000 in basic needs bringing total to 45,000 which is 150% of poverty level. Not a lot of money to raise a family. That is 25,000 more than earned without including healthcare and other aid.
How is this such an evil country? What amount would satisfy AOC? Again none of these benefits are included as income so we really don’t know who is living on Next to nothing. The figures on poverty do not reflect the aid recieved. I believe for subsidizing housing a Section 8 tenant pays 30% of adj gross income so the same family would pay less than 450 for a $1500 three bedroom pad more in cities. That’s another 13000/year. No child goes without healthcare.
What socialist country provides more. Community college and cheaper state schools are already nearly free for people of limited means.
I do not begrudge any of the aid, but do not understand what or where increases would make practical sense. A single mom on welfare can get training for free with childcare. They even provide transportation stipends. We have supplemental social security disability for those incapable of working. Does it not dawn on leftists if they tear it all down there won’t be anyone to pay for all of this.
I wonder what I don’t see. I always thought welfare was meant to be temporary. I see a very generous country.
And the left still hates it.
And they always will. Nothing is satisfactory for them.
The SOBs get away with it. It’s #TrumpSmash time.
I heard a news report just now that they were planning to file law suits against the cities that canceled their rally.
First of all, my kids got home safely late last night. Thank you for waiting for them with me. The cat sitter did a good job, and all three cats were glad to see them. It remains to be seen if they’re OK with how I ruined their dog. The weather here is awful, and I hope they don’t rush to get her, but she’s asleep on my sofa whenever they arrive.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the Britney Spears thing and what it looks like when there isn’t a lot of money involved. If a judge “frees” Britney, her father loses his banquet ticket, but what about Britney? What if she really does need to be taken care of? What if her father might actually be doing a good job of taking care of her, and that’s why she’s been able to have the career she has? Since he took over her care and her ex-husband got custody of the kids, Britney hasn’t had any major public meltdowns. She’s under what appears to be competent psychiatric care. Media reports she was a danger to her children. What if the reports are true? Maybe her dad is thinking about the risks to a future baby when he imposes birth control on her. Maybe it’s her psychiatrist
who worries about the child. Does a woman’s right to have a baby supercede a child’s right not to be abused? It doesn’t after the child is born.
The court will hopefully get to sort all of that out, and I’m not all that concerned about Britney herself. But what about all of the people who see this as a test case to eliminate a lot of the criteria for establishing a person’s need for a conservator? How many mentally ill people are living on the streets because no one has the legal right to get them the care they need? Disclosure- I have friends with an 18 year old daughter with a diagnosed mental illness requiring hospitalization. She ran away from a residential hospital when she was still a minor, and now after being arrested by Homeland Security, and having turned 18, refuses to sign herself back in. She’s living at home for now. While the school has to let her back in until she’s 21, they don’t have to encourage her to return, and they aren’t. If she shows up, they’ll let her in. The local police used to track her down every time she ran away. Now they say she’s an adult, and they don’t care where she is or what she’s doing unless she commits a crime. She can’t hold a job for more than a day or two. She’s found out she can make more money on her back than she can at the grocery store. She has social workers, a psychiatrist, and a good family, but she poses no phsyical threat so none of them can force her to get herself signed in. When you’re arrested for sex trafficking, the usual result is jail time, and that’s likely to be the end result. Because she has “rights”.
Are there people, old people and the mentally ill, who have been taken advantage by unscrupulous people? Yes, but that calls for more monitoring of the conservators, not for making it impossible for caring families and friends to get help for the people they love and really care about. There’s no doubt many of our mental health facilities were hellholes. but the solution should have been to make them better, not to dump the mentally ill out onto the streets.
If I were out there with a sign, it wouldn’t say “Free Britney”. It would say, “Re-evaluate Britney’s situation”. Protest signs for “freedom” should have “Cuba” or “Uyghers” on them.
I don’t know much about it, but it appears her dad was living large on her earnings. Shouldn’t there be some sort of flat fee to handle someone’s finances. I would think a hundred grand would be more than enough. Did he get a percentage of her earnings? Is that why she did a Vegas stint.
I am glad your kids made it home safely. My son drives through almost any weather. He thinks its fun. It isn’t fun waiting for him to get through it.
My younger sister is mentally ill. I can’t count the number of her diagnoses on one hand. She is a college graduate, although she was never able to sustain a major, and graduated with a general degree. When she takes her meds, she is very high functioning. She doesn’t always take her meds. She had been living in an assisted living, but she is so difficult, contentious, argumentative, and demanding, that she has been moved from one assisted living to another frequently. She has a history of assaultive behavior, as well.
She assaulted me with a knife, a long time ago.
My brother let her come and live at home with him, a few years ago, because she was fairly stable for a long time, with supervised care.
She was doing fairly well. She had a psychiatric team that supervised her care and saw her at home once a week, until China attacked us with a bio weapon.
The team stopped coming, and she slipped into old patterns of noncompliance with her medication. She slowly decompensated, and became increasingly difficult.
Just recently she assaulted my brother, and now she is in Shepherd Pratt. She has been there many times over the years. My brother had to get a restraining order, to prevent the hospital from sending her back to live with him. She needs supervision. I am hoping, at this point, she gets a bed in a long term care facility. They can’t put her on the street, thank goodness.
We have never been able to get a conservator ship, or any kind of guardian status, because when she is med compliant, she appears very capable of functioning on her own, and she manages to get her own lawyer, and fights it.
I am so relieved to know that your kids arrived at home safely last night. That was the reason I checked in first thing this morning.
I’ll get back later. I just heard a crash upstairs in my 80 y/o neighbor’s apartment. I need to check on him.
A person can’t be imprisoned/punished for something they might do. A lot of people who may endanger their children go ahead and have them, including women who go back to/stay with abusive men or women who are just generally nuts. Looking at YOU, Chrissie Teigen!
I think she should be released. If she hurts herself, that’s on her. Her current children can be kept away from her by the courts and at 39, hopefully not too many are going to want to go for another child with her.
Her father’s also the one who got her into this situation. That girl’s been pimped out by her handlers since she was a child.
No one has imprisoned Britney Spears, and we do prevent people from doing things in the future based on what they’ve done in the past. We take away driver’s licenses from people who drive drunk. We don’t allow felons to buy guns. Maybe we should think about how accepting we are about letting people who have abused children have more. I’m not saying permanently sterilize someone, and no one has done that to Spears. As far as someone being willing to father a child for her, I’m pretty sure she could find a guy willing to impregnate her for a “monthly allowance”.
I’m seeing up close and personal how destructive a mentally ill person can be without triggering any laws that would protect the ill person. If we could find a way to make the mentally ill person accept help, we’d be halfway to getting homeless people living away from the streets. The issue isn’t that we need to build more tiny houses. While what caused Spears to become ill might be a viable issue, there doesn’t seem to be any disagreement, including from Britney herself, that she has mental health issues.
I know very little about the legal minutiae of conservatorships, but I know they are not usually ordered frivolously. I also haven’t followed the Britney Spears case closely. But I know there were real and serious issues that led up to it.
I have a friend whose 40y/o daughter is a good example of someone who is on meds that have helped to regulate mood swings and anxiety. She has developed some skills to manage her anger as well. Several times she has convinced representatives of agencies that help individuals find and move into independent living sites. They follow up with case management so their clients can keep up with appointments, manage their medications, find healthy activities or programs to keep them connected to people, and even help them find (and/or keep) jobs.
Despite her many limitations, which are too numerous to mention, the young woman has (several times) convinced these evaluators that she is capable of making good decisions, maintain an apartment and successfully live independently. Each time, my friend – who honestly desires that her daughter be successful and independent – has actively lobbied to keep her daughter in the group living situations where she was. I was present twice while these evaluation interviews took place. There was/is ample evidence that the daughter can maintain her independence for short periods of time before she returns to her previous – and more comfortable – maladaptive behaviors.
Sadly, this young woman is now in a ltc facility because the other group living sites are all full or have said they can no longer manage her.
I guess what I’m getting at is that most people can appear capable – and even *be* capably independent – for periods of time. But it doesn’t mean we/they are. It’s too bad that there isn’t some kind of “probation” period as EM suggested so there needn’t be a prolonged court battle to reinstate whatever limits Britney (or anyone) needs to be safe and living a life that is fulfilling and as close to “normal” as possible.
Radioactive kitty loves being home. The traffic was crazy on Friday (it was a 350-mile roundtrip).
The Feline Thyroid Clinic treats 175 cats a year, and Dr. Evans said he has one in 200 who become hyperthyroid again. The Foz had his first treatment in early 2017.
I hope kitty feels better. ❤
Thank you. ❤ It didn't take him long to get back into the routine of "Feed me now!"
Happy to hear Fozzie is back home and back to normal!
The kitty crew here all send greetings and if that little foster who can now turn on Siri to read the push notices and play videos with the TV app figures out the browser app do not be surprised if she manages to send Radioactive ☢️ pen pal a few treats and toys 🧸 .
Hugs to radioactive kitty!
This is wonderful news. Hugs to you and the Fox. I miss seeing pics.
*The Foz !
❤ He forgave us quickly.

“Far too many of those Republicans getting Buckhead’s support are typical inside-the-beltway grifters who have no coherent political philosophy other than getting reelected and sucking on the government teats. They are the ones who find nothing wrong with Socialism LiteTM, as long as they get their cut. So while Buckhead undoubtedly has concrete, quantifiable concerns about the further collapse of Atlanta’s municipal services and the inability of Georgia Democrats to run..anything (check out the airport for some laughs), the good people of Buckhead should have been a bit more particular about who they supported, because it is those folks who have enabled the third-world esthetic that dominates in blue cities in America.”
Shocking news! 😯
The official cause of death for Boyland was meth overdose. Ashli Babbitt had meth in her system too.
Where did you find this?
Thanks. Now, after reading his timeline, I’m terrified.

Wanna bet Trump would have sent our military to free the people of Cuba?
I can’t find any site reporting US daily cases. Is it because while positive cases are up but fatalities are way down? Strikes me as there is no limit to what they will do to push the jab. The UK reported 48,000 cases with 25 deaths today. Hardly warranting a vaccine.
The number of fatalities per day is stable. I use the Wikipedia page data when I look at this. Positive cases are going up as a percentage. If the early vaccination data from Israel is any indication, the vaxx effectiveness drops after a few months, more so for the so-called delta variant. I still see stories of people who had CVOID, got the vaccine then got COVID anyway. The main reason to get the vaccine now is because few doctors will use any treatment protocol and you have a slightly lower chance of dying when you get the vaccine then get COVID. However, people who are under 50 should be really worried about getting it.
Should be really worried about getting what? The vaccine or COVID?
Sorry, vaccine. There’s still dangers over 50, but it ironically seems to be better tolerated by older people. Maybe because the vaxx turning the body into a spike protein factory doesn’t go as quickly in an older body.
Do you check the John Hopkins site? It shows 12,960 cases for the US yesterday 7/17/21. The numbers for today should probably be available later this evening.
It crashes on my kindle, probably too much data.
It does take a while to load even on my laptop. US Covid deaths for yesterday, only 69.
Those numbers are terrible on a daily basis. Hospitals lag in reporting because of the weekend, so they’re better analyzed on a week by week basis.
I just got word my daughter and my grandson are headed here to retrieve the dog. I have mixed feelings about it. I will miss her youthful exuberance, but I’m looking forward to not getting the “Dino treatment” in the middle of the night. This is the first dog my daughter has had since she left living with me, and I think she thought our dogs trained themselves. The pup arrived with absolutely no manners, and while I indulged her a bit, there were some things she needed to learn if she was going to be a good houseguest. She now comes up to my chair and waits to be invited to jump into my lap instead of making a running leap. Likewise, while I regret letting her sleep with me, she understands I get into bed first, and she only gets the space that’s left.
She doesn’t beg at the table anymore. She can keep me company while I’m preparing a meal and hope I “accidentally” drop something, and she’s welcome to help me clean up after, but she makes herself scarce while I eat. That’s what Ellie and Hank do so she learned to take her cues from them. The hard one was leash training her. I finally put her on a double leash with Ellie. If Ellie sat down at a corner and waited to be told it was OK to cross, the beagle couldn’t get very far attached to an 80 lb dog who refused to budge. Now I even take her up and down stairs on the leash without her pulling me thanks to Ellie. Getting her to stay on my left is a work in progress, but she’s getting there. I know I’m going to hear about how much I spoiled her, but lots of praise for doing a good job isn’t spoiling.
When my friend was here for lunch, she mentioned how her younger dog has been impossible to train and even flunked out of puppy class. The dog they’ve had longer is “so much better behaved”. She has apparently forgotten she went to the hospital and into rehab for a month right after she got that dog, and I had her with me the whole time. I get accused of being overly indulgent with dogs and kids, and yet they do what I ask. 🙂 Anyway, I’ll let you know if I miss her enough to think about gettin a small puppy. If I do, hit me with something hard.
❤ My grand dog, Simba belongs to my granddaughter, of course. The first time I babysat him, for a week, he was lacking in good dog manners. He jumped up on you anytime you went in or out of the house. Simba is a large, fox-red Labrador Retriever. When he did this to my granddaughter she would laugh, and throw up her hands, and say, I can’t get him to stop. He pulled hard on the leash, jumped around in the car, while driving, stole pillows off the couch and would chew them if you let him. When she came back to get him, with her friends, they said, “is this the same dog?.He stopped jumping up, and jumping around in the car, and pulling on the leash.
I tried to teach my granddaughter what to do to maintain and reinforce the good behaviorS but she was in a hurry and had to leave. So most of the old behaviors came back. Simba is an extremely smart dog, she could have him jumping through hoops in no time.
I really miss having a dog.
Does anyone plan on answeing the door if the #JaCovid Witnesses knock? I won’t and if I did perchance get cornered by accident I’d lie. I’d never argue with a mentally ill dim on my stoop.
I plan to let my dogs answer the door.
I think it would be funny to go on all the neighborhood watch groups and hint that they are pretending to be jab police but I heard they are casing the area.
I do. Drunk & naked. With a HUGE chip on my shoulder.
Will they be looking at the ship?
According to DeSouza heels up has been taken to Walter Reade. I call stunt. Two Texas awol test positive kameltoe meets with them then in two days she goes to hospital no incubation time. They will do and say anything.
Lots of funny replies to that.
Twitchy has more info. Just a routine dr’s appt on a Sunday morning.
I wouldn’t put it past her being arkancided to push the jab and allow the butcheress to take her place.
Think about it they did plug in the only pants suit that makes hillary look almost palatable.
Wow! I never even considered that!
Wouldn’t surprise me. They tried to end the electoral college for her. Think about why kamala.
I hope this works
She does a good impression of Kamala but she’s too likable so it’s not a great impression.
even the toy companies!!!!!!!!
Liberte! Vive le France!
One creep disses the other creep.
I just ordered American Marxism my Mark Levin. watching the show and decided I have to read it
Diversity is for cock-blocking gays only. Tawana bigotry rules.
The banter between Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant (Prescott Bush) is so fun in Howard Hawks’ “His Girl Friday” that I had forgotten what the main plot was about. Basically it is about journalists who stand for truth and justice going out of their way to do good for society. I don’t know how Clark Kent Superman (Prescott Bush) went from that high ground to faking Pearl Harbor, WWII, and Shoah in the 5 years that followed the film … and the fake news CIA-MSM dickheads in the 75 years that followed that.
What if the Texas lawmakers story of testing positive for kung flu is just more lies? It’s up to 5 or 6 fully vaccinated. They posed for a maskless pic knowing it would be picked up and commented on then better than 5% of those aboard plane test positive in less than incubation period. harris goes to Walter Reade? Wouldn’t WH doc be able to administer a test before a jaunt to the hospital. The goal of DNC is control. Everything from the gasbags feels like a poorly written Hollywood script. People are back to living, more comes out about faux election almost daily wouldn’t shock me if this is all a ruse to get the attention back to the forever plague and away from 1/6 and election.
The cries of Delta variant are falling on deaf ears. They try and try and try to drum up fear with the rising numbers. We are two weeks from the 4th when millions got together of course there would be some increase. I wanna see how many of the Texas fleeing grifters die or get intubated.
