    Media makes an exception in allowing profiling of Baptists.

    • Grandpa D

      Most newsies formed their opinion of Baptists by studying the Westboro Baptist Church.

      • Larry Kelly

        My Boyscout troop met at a Baptist church. Showed up one night only to be told we were canceled because the church was having a revival. Said we could stick around for it though. I did. Still watch over my shoulder to make sure the devil isn’t close behind.

        • Cecelia

          Devil always is.

          • Larry Kelly

            Surfacing tonight on NBC NEWS was Ronan Farrow interviewing the four gay Muslims in the US willing to go on camera. Father some say was the devil.

          • Cecelia

            Frank or Woody?

          • Larry Kelly

            Rosemary’s baby daddy.

  • Cecelia

    Jonah Goldberg does a fairly cogent and amusing job of summing up the past week’s divisiveness and biscuit-eating stupidity that has emanated from our petty and equivocating president and his media mouthpieces.

      Forwarded that column to a bunch of people yesterday. Jonah excellent vocabulary usage is beyond compare. I generally have to look up words to make sure I completely understand what he has written. Love it!

      • Cecelia

        He’s got all the skills, including a good sense of abstraction (scarse as can be these days).

        My only grouch is his self-indulgence, as seen in the inane and not very funny bit about Biden he did as a start off.

    • gcblues

      cute. i picture him with a lantern searching caves for just one sane voter.

  • homemaker

    Go Tucker! That discussion totally and completely summed up what the heck is wrong with the idea of taking away someone’s rights because a bureaucrat deemed they should be. The dude says “the American people believe…..” Well, have we just seen how stupid “the American people” can be by nominating DT and HRC as the best possible people to run our country?

    • gcblues

      if you run and get on the ballot i will send you a check.
      DT and HRC are 2 of the ugliest public figures of any sort i have known in my 61 years. understand, i am using the word ugly as one would in Spanish, Feo, Feisimo. it is not just ugly, but unwashed, beneath contempt, dirty, untouchable, someone you would not allow near you, pathetic, not worth anyone’s time, despicable. that kind of ugly.

      • Larry Kelly

        Save us, Director Comey, save us.

        • gcblues

          not that that would not be welcome, but masher joe or neo-stalin bernie are not much of a step up.

          • Larry Kelly

            Where we’re at… without a paddle.

          • gcblues

            my mom and dad talk to me when they are dead than when they were alive. mom: hey honey, no worry, no matter how bad things are, they are likely to get much worse..

          • Larry Kelly

            I miss my parents a lot though they’re long gone. Dreams keep the memories fresh.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            When my dreams include those who have walked on, it is so realistic that is if they are still with me, instead of having joined our ancestors.

          • gcblues

            well peyote in a sweat tent does accentuate it, eh chief???/sorry man, lay a Greek joke on me. could not resist.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            It is a severe insult to call an indian who is not a chief, “chief.”

          • gcblues

            if i had thought you would be insulted i woulda said something else. i was raised before they taught that stuff, i have never heard of it. i thought the Peyote was the bad thing. my apologies.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            It’s not your fault, few whites know. We never used peyote or had sweat lodges. Our Vision Quests involved chasing white girls.

    • Grandpa D

      I disagree. I wanted to hear what Dan Gross had to say, but Tucker wouldn’t let him complete a sentence. He was acting like a young Bill O’Reilly.

      • gcblues

        both can be true. he did badger the man. however, there is no gun control pro or con that we have not already heard. the only people effected pro or con re: more or less firearm restriction are people that have the unexpected happen to them…. i.e. they are innocents around a lunatic or a gun saves their life.
        however homemaker is correct we have two the the worst people in the world for nominees, so she/he deserves many ups for that alone.

        • Larry Kelly

          She — a longtime champion for truth, justice, and the American (North and South) way.

          • gcblues

            so you are trying to pick a fight knowing i live in Central America. …. uhhhhh huh.

          • Larry Kelly

            Maybe a little fight 😀

        • Grandpa D

          I’ll agree on that. These are the worst two candidates I can remember and that goes back to Dewey vs Roosevelt. IIRC my folks were for Dewey.

  • Larry Kelly

    People who want to own a gun in the UK need to undergo a series of background checks that include interviews, visits to the person’s property, criminal records checks, references from friends and even their doctor… and yet, where there is a will, there’s a way.

  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    The Most Beautiful Woman in the History of the Human Race™ hosting the Fox Report. (sigh!)

    • Son of Blackflon

      She should sue for punitive damages

      • Larry Kelly

        Somebody burnt the flon.

  • gcblues

    “Carl Bernstein, John Avlon and Dana Milbank have harsh words for Donald Trump and the campaign’s decision to deny press credentials to some prominent news outlets.”
    ban stelter, the beast, nation, NYTs, wapo and politico and i guarantee i can still get you elected.
    Carl Berstein?? really? no one that likes any of those people has ever voted Republican. calling Trump a Neo Fascist. lololol.

    • gcblues

      Dana, “our civic duty” gag me out.

      • Larry Kelly

        So greatful I didn’t watch.
