    Happy Anthony Fauci Day

  • JTC

    For what it’s worth (heh), at least the ChiComs and McConnell et al have accepted and embraced that most capitalist tenet of all…

    Supply and demand.

    Of course the Bitins are about to show them all how that game is played.

  • Pamela

    How much does a soul go for these days?

    • Too Tall

      Thirty pieces of silver. One month’s wages for an honest, skilled, worker, back in the day.

  • Buck

    Are you buying or selling?

    • GWB

      Pamela doesn’t have to buy. She’s a redhead.

  • DogByte6RER

    Cocaine Mitch?!?

    Nah … more like China White Mitch.

    • President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

      Post Turtle Mitch.

  • Kafiroon

    I remember everybody bitchin’ about “cheap Chinese junk”.
    So look what the Chinese have bought; cheap junk politicians.
    Along with all kinds of other anti-American trash people.
    Would You pay Bidens the multiple millions that the Chinese did?

    Some people may think the USA is worth it, but other places and other times have found those they enslaved were not worth the pain in the azz that resulted.
    There is a Christmas Carol that reminds the rich to feed them great food and good drink or they will regret it the rest of the year.

  • Pete231

    Instead of wading through 5600 pp. of windy BS to get to the real meat, could someone please post the names of the authors and amounts of cash being given to our “friends” and others not of this country. I’d like to send them a Xmas “present” to show my cheer and glad tidings….

    • John

      Why do you think they have Omnibus bills?
      It’s to protect the guilty from retribution.
      The only solution to Omnibus bills is to fire the lot of them.

      • Roland Deschain

        To fire them we would need clean and fair elections. It looks like they have prevented that from ever happening again. The Crooked Politician Protection Program.

      • MasterDiver

        Sounds good to me. Primary every one of ’em with more than six years in office.

        Zar Belk!

    • Look at the Bill. Read Division K, Title 1. If your anti-nausea pills are still working, read the rest of Division K. No attributions (blame lines) were made.

    • JTC

      Don’t need that, just give PDJT a line-item veto pen and watch those pages shrink!

  • Halley

    Am I missing something, or did the US Congress just flip the bird to the President and his (our) fight to expose and overturn the Nov. 3 terror attack on the Constitution?

    Whatever else happens, 2021 will see the birth of a yuge 3rd party…

    • Randy

      Can only hope you are right. I personally know too many people that are to busy focusing on getting by day-by-day (sorry for the steal Chris) to worry about what the Washington “masters” are doing tot eh country. Or they’re so self absorbed in their respective social media echo chambers to really get the “big picture” of how the swamp creatures are selling the country to outsiders. Far too many of these people I know are anybody but Trump voters. No concept or care about policy, Trump is a “bully” so they want him out!

        • JTC

          Yes sir DH, Ms. Chamberlain’s letter has been linked and discussed here a few times over the past week. It is full of truth and good but it suffers from a lethal flaw, the same flaw that 93% share, namely some reason not to take up arms personally but rather to beseech others (the 3%) to do it for them.

          All of us musk ask ourselves;

          Are you of the 97%
          Or the 3%?

          • I have been buying ammunition for both the guns I have. When the time comes I will be there.

          • JTC

            A Threeper then. Welcome. And thank you.

    • MasterDiver

      Propertarian or Constitutionalist?

      Zar Belk!

  • Wood

    I’m surprised so many people are bent out of shape that Trump is an @$$hole. So? So was the surgeon who operated on my dad and gave him another year of life. The surgeon was sure if his abilities, and didn’t sugarcoat his assessment. He had no bedside manner. But he was accurate and didn’t beat around the bush. Do you want a whiney wimp operating on you, or the @$$hole?

    It’s not that long ago that statesmen engaged in fistfights and duels. Now we have “toxic masculinity” and other newspeak nonsense when these reps are so powerless, so useless. They obviously stand for nothing.

    Bring back the statesmen willing to literally fight, and possibly get whipped, for what they believe in. Not the sellouts with soft hands and “jerk nails.”

    • John

      Statesmanship requires honor and a commitment to what’s perceived to be proper.
      Politicians are rarely statesmen because their _only_ yardstick is reelection, not truth or even performance. They will sell out anyone at any given time because they rely on an electorate with the memory span of a goose.
      One partial solution to this, as I see it, is to force the electorate to actually _know_ who they are voting for by name. That means, at the very least, making it illegal to label party affiliation on a ballot and ban automatic straight ticket voting.
      Should we ever see a Federal Election Standards law these would have to be included. Not likely because low information is the bread and butter of Politicians.

      • JIMV

        Now that is a bad idea. My local government is already full of ‘non partisan’ positions where it is almost impossible to figure out who those folk are and why their vote totals are way less than folk who fly their true colors.

    • Chris Muir

      hmmm…

  • A wise man once asked me, oh about 24 years ago, – “Mike, do you know why I quit hitting my dick with a hammer?”

    I replied with a dumbfounded – “No.”

    He answered – “Because if felt so fucking good when I stopped!!”

    When the pain overtakes the result, those who won’t, will or they will perish. I just hope we can recover that which was lost while while we waited.

    I spent 3 years in Korea in the 70’s when the only U.S. Live firebase was at the DMZ. I was and am prepared to carry out my Oath. I was released from the service, I was never released from that Obligation.

      BZ, DH.
      I was in Taegu, Korea 85-86, Combat Service Support (commo repair) to the 8th Army.
      And, like you, I’m retired from the military, but not retired from my Oath.

  • Eh, Wot?

    From “Dixie City Jam” by James Lee Burke, 1994, Hyperion Publishing:

    “But the preacher had said something on the dirt road that would not go away, that hung on the edge of my consciousness like an impacted tooth that throbs dully in your sleep.

    What if, instead of a particular crime, we were dealing with people, or forces, who wished to engineer a situation that would allow political criminality, despotism masked as law and order, to become a way of life?

    Was it that hard to envision? The elements to pull it off seemed readily at hand.

    Financial insecurity. Lack of faith in traditional government and institutions. Fear and suspicions of minorities, irritability and guilt at the visibility of the homeless and the mentally ill who wandered the streets of every city in the nation , the brooding angry sense that things were pulling apart at the center, that armed and sadistic gangs could hunt down, rape, brutally beat and kill the innocent at will. Or, more easily put, the general feeling that it was time to create examples, to wink at the Constitution, and perhaps once again decorate the streetlamps and trees with strange fruit.”

  • NOTICE : My computer just died, naturally the two days where nothing is open. This follows my after heater dying yesterday, and having had totaled the car 3 days ago. There will be a toon for tomorrow as I pre-loaded it, but it may be 3-5 days before things get sorted.

    Merry Christmas, Ba Humbug. I don’t need $, just some time.

    • President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

      Take yer time. Get’er’done right. We ain’t goin’ nowheres.
      Or, to quote Valentine Michael Smith, “Patience is”.

    • Kafiroon

      I hope you did Not pray for patience with all of us.
      That is positive to bring on the onslaught.
      I will pray all the pieces come together with minimal cost and effort on your part though.

    • JTC

      Christmas a humbug?

      Didn’t you learn anything from what was essentially the first socialist fairy tale?

      But Dickens notwithstanding celebrating Jesus birth (which the movie never mentions of course) is the best way to forget 2020 and offers the best hope for the future whatever it may hold.

      So all the BS that has come your way fits right in for this year, but next year will be another story, I promise.

      And of course the awesomeness that is planned for Christmas Day goes a long way to getting all of us out here in DBD land off to a great start…not to give too much away but let’s just say we won’t have to open our presents (thank you in advance for that).

      So here’s wishing you an awesome Christmas 2020 in spite of it all, and especially an incredible 2021 regardless of it all.

      You were in a car-totaling accident a few days ago and did not ask for help or even make it known, I mean that fourth wall is not like an inviolable rule.

      But again, thanks for my present, getting all anxious thinking about it like that time I was hoping so hard for the little .22 Marlin that Santa found a way to bring for an only semi-good 9 year old boy. 🙂

    • DW

      May it stop three. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

      • DW

        Stop at three

    • My Way or -->

      My computer died on me, too, but it was 18 years old and the hard drive had wanted to retire a long time ago.
      I found a store that takes used computers, cleans them “out” (no junk left behind) and installs a whole new system. For a very, very modest cost, I got an affordable upgrade and a good quality replacement.
      And all — repeat ALL – of my stuff on my old hard drive was recovered and transferred.
      I hope this one lasts at least 15 years, too.

      Merry Christmas to one and all.

    • Merle

      well crap! I hope it all works out for you.

      MERRY CHRISTMAS anyhow…..

    President Trump is behaving as an American citizen and President would and should in vetoing the pork filled bill with only veritable nothing for Americans.
    Political crime has been ramping up.
    Control of the center to control all else has been developed. That is a Progressive tactic. As are many tactics in place. Almost all of the government workers in some jurisdictions are acting for the enemies of America. We have to pay their salaries, that are bloated compared to the Americans. For most all of many their allegiance and loyalty is not to America and not to the US Constitution.
    We are able to assist America in winning. I do not know what particular acts, but use the skills and knowledge that you have. Keep calm and win. Follow the lead of knowledgeable patriots.
    The complexity and power of lobbyists enables buying favors and winning cash to be possible in these bills.
    This is still war, as many have pointed out. Be wise in actig or not acting to defeat this asymmetric war against us.

    As to the 1, 2, 3 hits to the creative wisely analytical artist personality and consciousness in charge of this space, he is still here. That is very good.

    • NotYetInACamp

      Merry Christmas everyone.
      May much good come to you.
