Debra Messing


Have always thought this was a pretty woman, all the way back her "anti-dentite" guest spot on the Seinfeld. Have a good friend that looked like this when she was young.

LGJM Unhinged

Yesterday Senator McCain, on the floor of the Senate, said that Senator Rand Paul now works for Vladimir Putin, this for an argument over puny Montenegro's addition to NATO. Montenegro will not add anything except cost and NATO suffers from from attacks from what John Bolton calls the EUroids.
On MSNBC Senator Paul responded...
Well you know, I think he makes a really, really strong case for term limits. I think maybe he’s past his prime, I think maybe he’s gotten a little bit unhinged.
Rand Paul: McCain ‘past his prime,’ may be ‘unhinged’
Paul suggests that McCain is unhinged, but I would say that he is consistent. He and Lindsey Graham act as if they hold a monopoly on military foreign policy, and have no qualms about criticizing anybody that does not follow the military complex dogma. They have openly criticized President Bush, President Obama, President Trump and any Congressman that dares take a stand in defiance of their supposed wisdom. Both are huge saber rattlers, plenty of bark and no bite.
Neither Senator has a positive reputation as a national spokesman for anything.
Both Senators have the distinction of running the worst Presidential campaigns in the last 36 years.
So, borrowing from the LGBT acronym and adapting, we have LGJM for Lindsey Graham and John McCain, who now represent the ever-present RINO leadership.
By the way, while I generally disagree with the foreign policy positions of Libertarians, in this case I am in agreement. NATO has become a bloated military alliance that grown too far beyond its charter.

Straight Forward Country Thinking.


by Jeff Foxworthy

Which side of the fence?
If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!
If a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a Democrat doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
If a Democrat is down-and-out he wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a Republican doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
A Democrat demands that those they don't like be shut down.

If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
If a Democrat decides he needs health care, he demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a Republican reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
A Democrat will delete it because he's "offended

Ouch

A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags rips, and every once in a while a $20 bill falls out onto the sidewalk.

Noticing this, a policeman stops her, and says, "Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling out of your bag."

"Oh, really? Darn!" said the little old lady. "I'd better go back, and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me."

"Well, now, not so fast," says the cop. "How did you get all that money? "You didn't steal it, did you?"

"Oh, no", said the little old lady. "You see, my back yard is right next to the football stadium parking lot. On game days, a lot of fans come and pee through the fence into my flower garden. So, I stand behind the fence with my hedge clippers. Each time some guy sticks his thing through the fence, I
say, '$20 or off it comes'.

"Well, that seems only fair" laughs the cop. "OK. Good luck! Oh, by the way, what's in the other bag?"

"Well, you know",

"not everybody pays".

Leftmost Nominee Ellison Defeated

Alan Dershowitz, defender for O. J. Simpson, seems to have found a voice that I enjoy listening to.

Ellison Was Defeated by His Own Actions Not by Any Smear

The Democrats managed to avoid a debacle in electing Tom Perez to lead the party.

Like the Republican voter base, the most vocal Democrats seem to be on the leading edge of liberal philosophy. While ALL politicians tend to support the inertia toward larger government, they also on both sides tend to coalesce at a generally unified center. The effect of this is that government tends to lean leftward and the greater population is polarized around a left of center Congress. As a result, few people are satisfied. In this polarization, the politicians willing to speak to the polarized bases have the potential to catch a populist wave of support. Trump did it, Sanders almost did it, Keith Ellison, by aligning with liberal Democratic dogma has tried and failed to ride it into leadership. The now Deputy had taken a position that was clearly racist, anti-Jew, anti-Israel and, frankly, anti-white. The Democrats have avoided unnecessary trouble in choosing a leader that that will not be a magnet for opponents shine light upon.

These things run cycles, at the moment, the only thing that has happened is that a Republican was elected President. Congress, though majority Republican, will be an anchor pulling the executive toward the left-center. Time will only tell if Trump can overwhelm the loose Congressional conspiracy.

Frankly I am glad that the Democrats chose a centrist as leader, it means that when the tide turns, the shift will not be tectonic.

Very Smart Wife

This a true example of when two people really know each other:
Retired veteran with a very smart wife.
 Early one morning, an elderly retired veteran just finished a piece of artwork he had been working on and yelled to his wife. "Honey! Come see what I created! It's an abstract panorama, depicting the eight Years of the Obama administration!"
 She yelled back, "Flush the toilet, Jim, and come eat your breakfast!"

Sharon Tate


What a waste.
The main men in her life remain, Roman Polanski, child rapist pedophile and convicted murderer Charlie Manson.

Don't Confuse Me


The girl on the left has to be photo-shopped, no way is she that big.
Yeah, I know who she is, she's the girl that married that racist entertainer.

This went pretty much according to party lines, but considering the comparable sizes of the teams in the Senate, I expected this vote to be closer. He takes this job after having served as the Attorney General of Oklahoma. A pragmatist who does not reflexively accept the environmentalist holier than though so the debate is over bullshit.
