Americans, Men & Women ← Previous post Next post → Comments JTC Oct 07 2021 at 12:05 am Holy shit, this here place do have some plot twists and turns…kinda like RL. JTC Oct 07 2021 at 12:39 am Sure enjoy the former a lot more than the latter lately. Maybe the Artiste could script us a new reality; if leftists can create a false one why can’t we? steveb919 Oct 07 2021 at 3:24 am It’s getting hard for me to keep up and I read this everyday. merle Oct 07 2021 at 12:07 am Ooohhh, surprise! Kafiroon Oct 07 2021 at 12:13 am So the Blond Kiko is not related. Suprise… DogByte6RER Oct 07 2021 at 12:57 am So what does her 23 and Me or Ancestry.com results reveal? Scandinavian ancestry? White Russian? Swiss Miss? Gaelic or Celtic? California Girl?!? Come on … show the results! Henry Oct 07 2021 at 1:02 am Well, then, it’s settled. She gets permanent tenancy of the south farmhouse, with all the ammo and battle she can enjoy. (Unless the last fire was too extensive, that would be a shame.) Henry Oct 08 2021 at 1:39 am Oops. I thought the last word bubble was Mia, not Naomi. That puts a different slant on what’s happening. ExNuke Oct 07 2021 at 1:06 am Being a “parent” has little or nothing to do with which two gametes got together to make a gamete, it’s a heart and mind thing. When you’ve gone to extremes to save a stray cat or dog or person you don’t dump it on the side of a county road to fend for itself if you ever want to look in a mirror. I’m sure there is a Heinlein quote about that but I’m not going to look for it tonight (there’s one of his quotes for damn near every situation). Drew Oct 07 2021 at 1:12 am “Being a mother is an attitude, not a biological relation.” ― Robert A. Heinlein, Have Space Suit—Will Travel madCat Oct 07 2021 at 8:33 am Absolutely. My two daughters are mine in all ways but blood. I could and would literally kill (or die) protecting them. It’s a forever thing. Neanderthal JTC Oct 07 2021 at 10:45 am “It’s not a custody battle.” Oh it really is. A lot invested in that girl not just recently but over the last 23 years. As someone said downthread, there may still be a biological child out there somewhere so that gnawing question and emotional investment continues. But Mia is just as much their child even though not biological and even though not chronological…and while her life heretofore has been tragic, it has sure taken a turn for the better. She is one lucky adopted daughter. cz93x62 Oct 07 2021 at 1:09 am I am glad I have no money riding on this outcome. James Gemind Oct 07 2021 at 2:06 am Mia can stay with me… 🙂 Lucius Severus Pertinax Oct 07 2021 at 2:52 am “…Buenos Aires in the Summers.” Um… WHICH Summers? Northern or Southern Hemisphere? Browncoat57 Oct 07 2021 at 6:22 am Right? I sponsor three kids through Compassion International and was writing them letters the other day and mentioned that summer was ending and I was looking forward to cooler temperatures and was about to ask if they felt the same, but then… Two are in Peru and Bolivia and the other in equatorial Africa so… Henry Oct 08 2021 at 1:36 am The Texas summers, hopefully. Having a choice, who would come back here for those, instead of the winters? Bill Ewing Oct 07 2021 at 3:56 am I’m lost! Too Tall Oct 07 2021 at 6:23 am “K, we all confused….” – from Men in Black II Zed is speaking in the yellow word bubbles, and Naomi is speaking in the two white word bubbles NOT attributed to Mia. Zed thinks he is participating in a logical discussion about Mia’s future. Naomi, who literally went to hell and back to get Mia, is and has been Heinlein’s definition of a mother. Emotional doesn’t even begin to cover it…. And having recently survived a car ride with Sam calmly discussing “How to Murder Your Husband,” Zed now blunders into a battle with Naomi? Apparently some guys just can’t deal with peace and quiet. Or did Zed just “draw” a picture of a button? Regardless, Mia now knows she is wanted, welcomed, and loved. Browncoat57 Oct 07 2021 at 6:24 am Her comment reminds me of John Travolta’s angel character in the film, ‘Michael’. Just don’t put her head to head with Tabasco. Too Tall Oct 07 2021 at 6:29 am Tabasco is smart enough to know when to gallantly withdraw. John M. Oct 07 2021 at 4:17 pm So, I m not the only one that had that scene come to mind… …and Naomi v. Tabasco? Could end up the same way as Michael v. The Bull! You never know with that lady… AngryToxicDeplorable-PaulS Oct 07 2021 at 6:42 am Mama Mia?!? Mike-SMO Oct 07 2021 at 6:49 am Worrisome about how she “lit up” on the word “battle”. Something will come screaming out of the dark…… Incoming! Wood Oct 07 2021 at 7:28 am We’re in for battles aplenty. Just like the swarms from south of the border, the Afghans brought in by the biden admin are vanishing into the interior. While Americans and others remain trapped. These recent bring-backs are already being charged with violent crimes against women, whether their “wives” they brought with or American women. It’s shameful. Henry Oct 08 2021 at 1:41 am Now that I understand that the last bubble was Naomi and not Mia, it looks like she’s not brightening up at “battle,” but at having two groups of people who want to “belong to her.” TheDuckHunter Oct 07 2021 at 7:10 am Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller has been reportedly charged with six violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and will face trial by court-martial on Oct. 14. According to the Army Times, he has been charged with Article 88 (contempt toward officials), Article 89 (disrespect toward superior commissioned officers), Article 90 (willfully disobeying a superior commissioned officer), Article 92 (dereliction in the performance of duties), Article 92 (failure to obey order or regulation), and Article 133 (conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman). Stuart Scheller’s father, Stu Scheller Sr., said support from fellow Americans will greatly help his son. The Marine Corps will “win the battle.” “But America is going to help Stuart win the war,” he said. https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/lt-col-scheller-to-face-oct-14-trial-by-court-martial_4035979.html?utm_source=Morningbrief&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=mb-2021-10-07&mktids=834a710dbc101f0a6fc6ece50ef33e91&est=ozkOSlHiS%2Fc1zW9NrOtFYssZdAWiH9OWNy504z%2FHrHFfnu%2Fv19RqVUwtRDxD Unca Walt Oct 07 2021 at 7:29 am There’s griping… and there is dereliction of duty. This guy didn’t gripe — HE ADVERTISED. There is a (military) world of legal difference between the two. Neanderthal JTC Oct 07 2021 at 1:50 pm Important lesson for Patriot Mil Men… Resign commission first, tell the truth later. And maybe run for office based on both. Got my vote, for what it’s worth. Wood Oct 07 2021 at 7:39 am 88 & 89, check. I’m “guilty” of the same. And yet, is it not respectful to hold these “leaders” to the highest standard? 90, check. And yet, is it not duty to disobey unlawful orders? 92 & 113, no way. He was doing his duty. “Upper management” failed. But I have a bit of an anti authoritarian streak… regardless of which party is f*cking things up. madCat Oct 07 2021 at 8:50 am They missed one —Article 134, the Catch-All Article (if it isn’t illegal anywhere else, it’s illegal herein); Total disrespect for a former Commander-In-Chief. He lost my support with that last one. In any case, the gov’t has a strong case against him but is being spiteful and petty in pursuing it. As with the 1/6 witch-hunt, he is being made an example. Occasional Commenter Oct 07 2021 at 10:04 am This means Zed and Naomi still have a child out in the world, somewhere. AngryToxicDeplorable-PaulS Oct 07 2021 at 10:32 am Or the wristband was taken off a deceased baby 🙁 Henry Oct 08 2021 at 1:44 am Like it or not, we would serve ourselves best by massing a relatively huge “totally-peaceful” demonstration outside the gate of wherever the first day of his trial is going to be. Let the perfumed princes understand well that the truth, and not the narrative, is what has America’s support. ComeAndTakeIt Oct 07 2021 at 7:40 am I am also a Compassion International child sponsor. Thanks for sponsoring three children! It is a great charity and an easy way to help better the world. Richard Oct 07 2021 at 9:16 am Maybe we can escape this reality by going to the universe without the “J”. Halley Oct 07 2021 at 11:58 am ; ) I’m in if Deety’s in… Son Of A Valkyrie Oct 07 2021 at 10:05 am Speaking as an adoptee, Love IS thicker than genetics! Arkay Oct 07 2021 at 3:58 pm My cousins who were adopted are my cousins. Period. Genetics be damned. However, DNA did identify a first cousin who was adopted out at birth, and we confirmed it when he sent a photo (he looks exactly like all the other males in that line). We immediately welcomed him into the family, and pretty much blew his mind with all the relatives he now has. When a cousin located her birth mother to get medical background, we adopted Mom. She’s part of our family now. Love is definitely thicker than genetics. NotYetInACamp Oct 07 2021 at 10:14 pm The right thing. Halley Oct 07 2021 at 11:55 am Just guessing, but the formerly Noble academy may have just figured out a way to give the literature prize to BLM. On a better note, the Swedes have stopped the ”vaccines” for children and youth. Bravo!!! What sayeth PDT? Neanderthal JTC Oct 07 2021 at 1:55 pm “What sayeth PDT?” “Send Money!” Otherwise, not shiteth. Kafiroon Oct 07 2021 at 12:53 pm Just decided on some new words courtesy of Glen Filthie. I’ve seen Branch Covidians before, but I like adding “devout”. Now “pure bloods” would be those of us that have not destroyed our immune systems and had our blood look insane under microscopes. Henry Oct 08 2021 at 1:47 am “Pure bloods” carries a bit of that “Aryan” ring that you may not want to adopt unless you mean it. cb Oct 07 2021 at 2:15 pm Adopted 3 over many years, all more productive citizens than yours truly. It’ll be interesting to see who if anyone Mia’s DNA sample leads to. ~ Slightly off topic: http://stonetoss.com/ NotYetInACamp Oct 07 2021 at 8:46 pm the stone hit NotYetInACamp Oct 07 2021 at 8:43 pm off topic, but not as it effects all https://ifw.io/6w2 covidland premier. Pamela Oct 07 2021 at 9:32 pm Please tell that Hunter Biden wasn’t playing fast and loose years ago in the middle east… Where’s the Grown up Baby that belongs to the bracelet? NotYetInACamp Oct 07 2021 at 10:12 pm The unanswered question. Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
