    RUMOR: “Live with Kelly” has purchased a set of training wheels.

      • Larry Kelly

        I’m on tape delay.

  • Larry Kelly

    Don’t like the attention given to climbing-guy-stunts. Shep hates Trump so much he almost welcomed it as a meritorious political statement. I saw a cop in danger grabbing the asshat to pull him in the removed window. I saw enough taxpayer money wasted to fund a battered women’s shelter. BY ALL MEANS, let’s encourage this crap. Maybe next one makes a big splat.

    • Cecelia

      Covering that like it was “breaking news” worthy of Shep breaking into regular programming is nonsense.

      It was a stunt. It wasn’t someone in danger or a police chase.

  • Larry Kelly

    Mr. Concha leaves NEWSMAN. NEWSMAX turns into dog poop. Chicken or egg? Egg or chicken?

    • Michael T

      The Hill was a bit of a surprise to me.

      Along with conservative columnists they also have columnists (past and present) like A.B. Stoddard, Lanny Davis, Juan Williams, Bill Press and Markos Moulitas.

      I just assumed they were a non-partisan website. (For the record I am not sure Stoddard can be labeled left or right.)

      Then I read yesterday The Hill is a conservative website.

      I’m confused and flabbergasted (I love saying that word).

      • Larry Kelly

        Always seemed to me they came at things from varied angles.

        • Michael T

          Lately, tweets from The Hill seem to lean right. But you could say that about a lot of sites that go through phases. Hard to see a discernible bias on their home page. Next week their tweets could lean left. Mediaite and ABC News do the same thing with their tweets.

          As I posted earlier, the two sites below seem to think The Hill is conservative regardless of what little ol’ me thinks :
          http://www.conservapedia.com/The_Hill
          and
          TheNewRevere, which a year ago ranked The Hill the 10th most popular conservative website. (Cross linked by the Wikipedia page on The Hill.)

            Interesting stuff about The Hill rated “neutral,” Joe. Also, I was surprised to see them rating Politico as conservative, when I’ve seen just the opposite (commenter complaints) lately. I think I need better sources for those sites I don’t follow closely. 😊

            Footnote:
            One of the commenters at the site claimed Salon was much more libertarian than liberal. He may have a point seeing how many anti Hillary columns they’ve tweeted links to in recent months.

          • Joe Concha

            It is what you think it is… all in the eye of the beholder. I wouldn’t say Politico is conservative, agreed, and would put RCP under neutral. It’s just one person’s opinion.

      • Joe Concha

        It’s nonpartisan, Michael. I also wrote for the Daily Beast not too long ago… How would you define that publication?

        • Michael T

          Contrary to many complaints from the right in the Mediaite comments sections, I have never considered that site as anything other than non-partisan…and I’ve been with them since their launch.

          • Joe Concha

            OK- so how could I get hired at The Hill and write for the Daily Beast if both are considered in some circles as non-partisan? And how could MSNBC ever put me on their air? Or CNN? It’s just so confusing…

          • Michael T

            Don’t forget Joe I am not saying it…I cited http://www.conservapedia.com/The_Hill as saying The Hill was a conservative site.

            I am afraid you’d have to ask them that question. Perhaps your question was meant to be rhetorical.

          • Joe Concha

            Thanks Michael. The only constant in life is change… or something to that effect 🙂

          • Larry Kelly

            Feel the fear and forge ahead. Kelly motto.

            So you think Mediaite and the Daily Beast are center-right? Ok- carry on, governor.

        • Michael T

          What is “ins”…that’s a new one for my lexicon.

          • gcblues

            “ins” as in the Political Insiders description of the political class. whether dem or repub, public or private that circulates and feeds at the public trough, the “ins” like bookies always win. some like Bob Shrum have never won, they just collect checks.

            I feel enlightened now. Thank you.

        you know, i have an easier time not taking sides here than the US. first it is not my country, second, i got no beefs as how it is here now. the USA with citizen based taxation is a bigger prob than residency and the taxes i pay here.
        that being said just the news on the isthmus of CA should be important. i was showing Tomi a pick of the container ship size Daniel is talking about and explained how there would need to be a bridge on the PanAM in order to get to Cepadia where the family lives. i think we would need a circular or several kilometer long ramp to make it work. at least 30 meters clearance or more i would have to guess. not holding my breath but it is interesting and important to the USA.

      I saw in your Instagram pics that you live on very beautiful piece of property. Are coyotes big in Ohio?

      • Larry Kelly

        Some years worse than others. Not so bad this your but three years ago their howling could wake you out of a sound sleep. Half dozen got so brave as to camp out under my apple tree in the back yard waiting for fruit to fall. I had to drive them away with a gun. Lady at the old general store near me now shoots to know kill after they got her dog. My neighbor had one kill a calf.

        • gcblues

          i like how they jump when you hit em with a 3 round burst of .223 from the full auto mini 14. some things about Oregon i miss. shooting, the ducks, Halibut, crab and not much else.

          • Larry Kelly

            I have a Mini-14, but it is just semi-auto. I’m a pretty good shot.

          • gcblues

            do not doubt it. even with a combat sight up to a hundred yards a torso size target is a hit. they make a .22lL conversion kit. change out the receiver and use the mag seat provided. we used to jack rabbit hunt with it from a jeep over the high desert. they jump good when you hit em to. i have no probs with vermin hunting. gotta do our part in keeping the eco balance jiijiji. is Ohio a full auto state? i sold out in 04 but they were fun to collect and due to scarcity an easy re-sale.

          • Larry Kelly

            Full auto is up to the county sheriff signing a BATF application, the $200 tax stamp, and a year wait for federal approval. Too expensive for my tastes as only guns made prior to 1986 can be purchased and those are running $15,000 at a minimum. I did go though the process though for a semi Thompson M1 SBR. Took me about a year and a half even with a wonderful sheriff who fingerprinted me before business hours.
            I have an old pump Winchester 22 mag that is a pretty good varmit gun

          • gcblues

            familiar with the process. if it has a suppressor it is 2 stamps double money. i feel stupid, i got $2,400 for the mini after paying 1,500. i like the Thompson, uses a standard .45. needs a drum:))

          • gcblues

            all the sheriffs in Oregon sign. there are a lot of clubs. In southern Oregon there are a lot of guys that make specialty barrels. little shops here and there. there is even a Canon club. they shoot bowling balls into lakes shot at high angle. fun times. the sanest people i have ever known.

  • Cecelia

    I have a confession to make. I never liked Robin Williams.

    • Michael T

      My confession re Williams would be the following:

      The only movie of his I really liked was Dead Poets Society.

      Some of his big hits I didn’t care for like Good Will Hunting (good but not great), Popeye, Good Morning Vietnam and Mrs. Doubtfire.

      I was never a fan of the silliness on Mork & Mindy either.

      OTOH, I’ve seen some appearances on Letterman, Leno and Inside the Actors Studio that absolutely amazed me because of his gift of spontaneity and comedic genius.

      • Cecelia

        He just seemed alternately manic and smarmy and morose to me.

        • Michael T

          Yeah, I saw some of that myself.

    • Larry Kelly

      I liked the first season of Mork and Mindy, after that, SHAZBOT.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Neither did I. I only watched Mork and Mindy for Pam Dawber. She was a cutie.

      • Michael T

        First Julie Andrews and now Pam Dawber, who I find adorable.

        We may not always agree politically Nixon. But when it comes to actresses we’re batting a thousand — 2 for 2.

      • Cecelia

        She is married to a man who looks better now than he did in the 80s.

    I will say … that I didn’t even know NewsMax TV will still going ..well I am surprised then ,I say that because it’s not on a lot of TV systems.

    • gcblues

      they have a free stream. i checked it out exactly once. was stupid time.

    • Grandpa D

      I’ve looked at their website; don’t recall seeing their stream. They seemed a little like Alex Jones with pictures.

      • gcblues

        it was on you tube and it was terrible

      • sky303

        Guess I am not missing much then ..

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Alex Jones makes me look sane.

  • The arrogance of ignorance, example #326:

    Fric: I see nothing in Dana Loesch’s past which qualifies her to talk politics on TV. Her opinion is literally as important as MINE.
    Frac: Someone on Fox News was “interested” in her. As we’ve known for YEARS, that’s how it works over there.

    Fact: Dana Loesch was hired by CNN. She is not a Fox News contributor.

    • Larry Kelly

      Maybe mixed her up with Jasper?

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Jasper for President!

    • GATXER

      Frac claims they have their “own” language…..I would suggest a translation dictionary is available at stormfront.

      What can you expect from someone who lies and claims to be a media critic covering Fox News and doesn’t know Karl Rove’s first name isn’t Carl.

      Today’s fake outrage is a cable host in the cable hall of fame gives opinions on an opinion show. Of course its not thats she gives opinions….it’s that she doesn’t give the ones they agree with…..otherwise they would whine about MSNBC host once in awhile….other than MJ.

      • They could talk in ecclesiastical Latin and Dana Loesch will still have been hired by CNN, not Fox News. As we’ve known for years.

    Wow. Greta beat Megyn.

    I was going to ask…what happened, did Mr. Trump pay her a visit?

    Then I saw this…

    No complaints…good for her.

    • GATXER

      might help that megyn is on Vacation also.

      Seems like half of all host on cable new stations went on vacation this week or last.

      • Michael T

        Good point.

        I kinda like that Tricia Regan. Is my brunette bias showing?

        Did not have a clue who she was at first since I don’t watch the business channels CNBC or FBN.

        Could we see a Bolling, Regan, Hannity lineup in 2018 (or sooner) if a network steals away Megyn and Mr. Bill semi retires?
