  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    Prissy at Newsmutts is just one more of Ellen’s curs.

    • GATXER

      A disgraced Newshound writer caught lying…..shocked I am….shocked I tell you.

      #laughingstocks!

      • Larry Kelly

        “Lying in defense of the cause is no vice. Truth in defense of enemies is no virtue.”, Barry M. Goldstooge.

        • Cecelia

          The lefty creed.

  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    Pray for the people of Brussels. The bastards have struck again.

  • GATXER

    Could we get a body count….or at least some hint of who did it before MSNBC’s people feel the need to remind us that Islam is a religion of peace….gee…

    • Cecelia

      We will probably never really know who did it…

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Probably extremist Quakers or Methodists. It can’t be those from The Religion of Peace™.

        • Larry Kelly

          The religion of pieces. Bloody small pieces.

      • Salon: It will likely be days, perhaps weeks, before we know much about the horrific terrorist attacks on an airport and subway in Brussels on Tuesday morning that killed dozens of people.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          It looks like that genius at Salon needs to see a neuroproctologist.

          • Larry Kelly

            And eyeglasses. Nice front page picture on Drudge of the three wheeling their bomb carts through the aiport.

    • Michael T

      If the goal was to minimize domestic attacks/retributions on American Muslims, I guess I am okay with it.

      But since I missed the MSNBC ‘reminder’ I don’t know the full context.

      • Cecelia

        That concern seems exaggerated beyond reality.

        • Michael T

          Given the current political climate and attitudes towards certain ethnic groups I’m not so sure.

          • Cecelia

            That’s it. It’s chiefly based on what we fear might happen given our low opinion of regular guys and dolls.

          • Cecelia

            The irony is that if and when there is violence against an American Muslim you can take it to the bank that the media and liberals will use it to broadbrush as wide a swath as possible of their political contrarians in an opportunistic maneuver that is starkly counter to what they urge for Muslims.

          • Cecelia

            The Mormon thing comes and goes depending upon whose ox is being targeted.

            I believe it’s a Christian sect.

          • Larry Kelly

            Moe the stooge used to claim it was a cult, he was the poster child for tolerance.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            I used to tell him, “Who are we to judge someone else’s belief in Christ?” That would really set the oedipal off.

          • Larry Kelly

            In fairness he didn’t much like Muslims either. All the bluster of the once religious.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            However, he did like himself….a lot.

          • Cecelia

            Actually, scriptures teaches that it is only people who profess to be Christians that the Church can judge.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            If someone claims to be a Christian, I take their word for it until they show different. Yes, Mormons have some strange beliefs. But I don’t consider it any of my business. That is between them and the Lord.

          • Cecelia

            You take their word for it until they show you otherwise. That’s scriptural.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Exactly.

          • gcblues

            and the millions and millions of poor people’s homes they visit recruiting every year.

          • Well that’s cuz Lawrence O’Donnell told him so. It’s a ‘creepy, demented cult’ according to O’D. Before he was forced to revise and extend his remarks, which in some circles would have been considered a firing offense.

          • Cecelia

            I love when they make fun of the protective underwear thing that Mormons do, but prayer candles, holy water, and St. Christopher medals are okey dokey.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            That’s because when you mention undies, in any context, it brings a giggle.

          • homemaker

            I learned from my mother-in-law that if you are over 65 the church says you can have meat on Fridays. Crazy rules IMO.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            That’s the first that I heard that, and I’ve been a Catholic since before I was born.

          • gcblues

            you really should consider visiting some catholic countries during navidad and semana santa, both month long affairs with processions, music, and fireworks night and day. the purisima is particularly beautiful.

          • gcblues

            Lawrence is a weird guy with a high IQ and some strange ideas.

          • Cecelia

            Perhaps, that was when Romney was running?…

          • Larry Kelly

            Correct. He never backed off. Funny part is racial bigotry his ultimate sin. Religious bigotry, not so much. Religion had to first pass his muster.

          • gcblues

            i believe their sole goal is to prey on un and under educated people in poor countries. all the “sects” are here merchandising and run like any business, johos the worst.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            At least Mormons aren’t blowing themselves up in crowded places or flying planes into buildings.

          • Larry Kelly

            Still awaiting the bomber named Jesus.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Jeremiah Wright, by far. The man stood there at the pulpit and violated the Commandment about using The Lord’s Name in vain. Screamed it out like a man posessed.

    • Larry Kelly

      Their pull the wool over our eyes BS technique has not only gotten old, it’s gotten ancient. And irritating.

  • Today is a good day to escape into sports and entertainment, avoiding news altogether.

    To that end, Geraldo underwhelmed last night on Dancing with the Stars. (Note the “the” in the title, Bill O’Reilly.) Unless he improves next week, he will probably be the first to be eliminated.

    • He’s does better in competitions when the only judge is his buddy (i.e. Apprentice).

      • Instead, the judges were rough on him, critically and numerically (5+4+4=13).

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          He would’ve scored lower, except there is no longer an East German judge to give out low marks,. Or is that Marx?

    • Cecelia

      I’m the type who almost has a heart attack fearing the celebrity singing the Star Spangled Banner won’t make the high note or the baton twirler is going to drop it.

      Watching DWTS would make me a nervous wreck.

      • I wasn’t nervous because I don’t have a rooting interest; not yet, anyway. I muted the TV during some of the numbers because I didn’t like a song. It was better that way because I could focus more on the dancing and prepare myself for the judging to come.

        Speaking of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” my favorite vocal rendition of it is by Jim Cornelison before Chicago Blackhawks games. It’s great because the fans cheer throughout. It makes me proud.

        • Cecelia

          My favorite version is any rendition that is not caterwauled into a southern spiritual.

          That was nice a decade ago, but it’s gotten old.

          • You mean where they elongate syllables, doubling, if not tripling, the length of the anthem?

          • Cecelia

            Yeah, caterwauling.

          • So, that’s what it’s called.

          • Cecelia

            Think Michael Bolton.

          • He doesn’t strike me as a caterwauler, but I don’t listen to him enough. Female singers seem to do it more.

          • Cecelia

            Celine Dion comes to mind.

          • And Christina Aguilera.

          • Marty

            Mariah Carey.

          • Larry Kelly

            Think Rosanne. No, that’s catwailng.

          • Marty

            I call it awful.

          • gcblues

            we all overplay sometimes, just like so much recorded is over produced.

        • Marty

          Whitney Houston
          Super Bowl XXV

          • I like that one, and not just because the Giants won that Super Bowl.

          • Marty

            Awesome rendition. She taped it the day before and sang with the tape into a dead mic.

          • I don’t like that method, but understand why it’s done. That’s how American Bandstand did it, among other shows.

          • homemaker

            I thought Lady Gaga did a good job at the Super Bowl. Not a big fan of her regular music but thought she sang the song and didn’t do crazy things to it.

          • gcblues

            it was an excellent technical performance. if her music turns serious she would no longer be a pop start but her rendition was no accident or natural born talent. she studied hard to learn that or of controlled presentation. great breathing girl. i was sunned.

          • Marty

            I didn’t hear her sing it live- saw it on a later replay. I thought she would butcher it. She surprised me.

      • Larry Kelly

        I can’t watch such things for similar reason. I love the kids cooking contest show because the kids are amazing but can’t stand it when one of them loses.

    • Larry Kelly

      Obama left for a baseball game. I swear he reads you, Mike.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        And they just ruined the game by interviewing The Man in the Mom Jeans. And Raul is there. I guess Raul’s brother, La bolsa de mierda, couldn’t make it.

        • Larry Kelly

          I bet he’s rooting for the commies.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            He’s rooted for them all his life. Uncle Frank would be so proud.

        • gcblues

          bolsa de mierde, lol bolsitas ahora. mas y mas pequeño cuando muerto is mas y mas cerca.

  • ojfl

    Laura Ingraham does not want common sense admission policies. The way she treated Rubio while he was still a candidate shows that vividly.

    • Maybe her website should be called Trumpzette (instead of Lifezette).

      • Marty

        What is a Lifezette?

          • Cecelia

            That site had me at “Skinny Foodies are Ruining our Coffee Breaks with their Healthy Alternatives”.

    • Marty

      She was on with O’Reilly maybe a year ago and he did say to her that she has softened her stance and she kind of agreed. However, she believes any kind of path to citizenship is amnesty. Kind of contradictory. Maybe she’s softened her language. She’s very much in line with DT.

      • I feel like the amnesty card gets as much play as the race card. And when most of the country says the word, they pronounce it “aemnesty.” That includes Laura, who is originally from outside of Hartford, Connecticut.

        • gcblues

          well said, it is dog bait.

      • ojfl

        I do not feel she softened much Marty. She savaged Rubio at every turn up to the point when he left the race. Who knows what is truly in her heart but her language towards Rubio in particular did not show any moderation.

  • KirkG

    When Fox has pundits on the should say right up front who the are supporting. Ingraham is a great example. She is a supporter of Trump and should own it.

    • gcblues

      some, like many conservatives like me, would choose none of those likely to win, so they should not say anything about supporting anyone. just pass on the info to the electorate

  • Larry Kelly

    I think Spud is after Mr. Concha’s goat. Not sure he has one. Maybe a llama?

    • Joe Concha

      I have a Westie…gritty little fella. Just chased a deer.

      • Larry Kelly

        God gave us a rough road to travel, but he eased the journey by creating the dog.

        • And thorny, don’t forget.

          • Larry Kelly

            While the wolfbane is in bloom and the autumn moon is bright.

          • Cecelia

            We’ve all got a bit of wolf in us. Dogs and people.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Especially during a full moon.

      • My chocolate lab would chase after squirrels when I let him out in the backyard.

        • gcblues

          my mutt don loco kills pigeons grabbing them out of the air and rats but is afraid of the cat, don negrito, who this month left a coral snake, dead, on my back step. i love animals.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            That snake was the cat’s way of giving the family a present….or a warning.

          • gcblues

            i think he was pitching me for a raise. we had like 9 or 10 laborers in that day working on the pool. they were very impressed.

    • Thanks to Rob Paulsen on The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, anytime I see the word “llama,” I think of him saying that word as Carl Wheezer. “Lllahhhhma.”

  • Larry Kelly

    Gawker damages awarded Hulk Hogan plus punitive tacked on: $140,000,000. Grin on Shep’s face as he reported some folks thought it would be good if that put GAWKER.COM out of business: priceless!

  • Son of Blackflon

    I miss Blackflon

    • Larry Kelly

      Perhaps a period of mourning with abstinence from the internets is in order.

      • Son of Blackflon

        Wound my heart with a monotonous languor

        • Larry Kelly

          Sooth it with a shot of Wild Turkey.

          • Son of Blackflon

            Nothing can replace DadFlon

          • Larry Kelly

            Got me there.

  • Larry Kelly

    My little dog is recovering splendidly. Wish I was as tough.

    • Cecelia

      I was thinking about her this morning.
