Kafiroon Feb 17 2020 at 1:03 am Well first the Doc smacks our azs, then a boobeh gets shoved in our mouth. We tend to fixate. On Pleasure. Pamela Feb 17 2020 at 1:09 am And later on, Congress Critters pay a WHOLE LOT OF $$$$ to get smacked, paddled and whipped while screwing US. Ozymandius Feb 17 2020 at 1:44 am “When politicians aren’t screwing their wives, they’re screwing the people” interventor Feb 17 2020 at 10:48 pm Sounds like the nation of France. NotYetInACamp Feb 17 2020 at 1:11 am I miss normality. WayneM Feb 17 2020 at 1:42 am Amen. It’s been a while. Steve Peterson Feb 17 2020 at 6:14 am What is normal? cmblake6 Feb 17 2020 at 10:38 pm NORML? I’m a supporter. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Feb 17 2020 at 1:41 am “The Views”. I wouldn’t watch that show if it was the last and only thing on TV. I have books, DVDs, amateur radio, other hands-on entertainment. I need to work my lapidary and silver back up, give me something productive to do when I finally retire. Which won’t be anytime soon. GWB Feb 17 2020 at 8:10 am other hands-on entertainment So… married? Pamela Feb 17 2020 at 11:34 am Hmm… perchance Chess, wood working? Ah maybe needlework? Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Feb 17 2020 at 9:27 pm Wood working no. But I would be interested if I could make a space. Chess……..it’s been a few years, but I could still play, even if not too well at first. And I have done some counted cross stitch (from a kit). Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Feb 17 2020 at 9:24 pm Yes. Bill G Feb 17 2020 at 7:01 am Those of red and blue who work together deem themselves fit to, and effectively now to be wearing the Purple. The Schiff show, and everything else, is due to their worry that Trump will upset their rise to full power. Dread Feb 17 2020 at 7:15 am I imagine Romney as being of the purple party; worthless, with potential to be trouble. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Feb 17 2020 at 9:31 pm Mittens sees himself as “born to the purple” ( royalty). shooter 2.5 Feb 17 2020 at 7:45 am We desperately need to win in November with Trump, Congress and the Senate. If we don’t we lose ou r freedoms. If we can do that, we can create programs that help the American people and we know Trump is on that side. We have to show the democrats they are wrong. By doing that, we can eliminate the differences in this country. If we can do that, we can eliminate the hatred from the other side. Lincoln said he destroyed enemies by making them his friends. GWB Feb 17 2020 at 8:34 am we can eliminate the differences in this country Well, no, we can’t. And I wouldn’t want to, entirely. The problem isn’t the differences, so much as the nature of the difference. The progressives are part of a religious cult that desires gov’t to care for, protect and sustain them. And they’ve seduced a huge part of the electorate into supporting that cult. And the cult has politicized EVERYTHING. The differences aren’t a problem when they aren’t the province of gov’t to settle. Nor of outrage mobs, a la Cambodia or China. The cult we must destroy primarily by depriving it of followers. To do this we must educate, extol, and exhort. We must restore a right vision of America in the eyes of the electorate (particularly the children and young adults). You’re right to cite Lincoln here. We must convince enough of the electorate to prefer family and local communities to the heavy hand of a national (or state in some cases) gov’t. We must convince them to return to a morality in which they govern themselves. Going purple won’t accomplish that, because it assumes the center is the position of compromise. That “center” has moved way too far to the left because of prior compromise with the progressives. We must move it back to the right first. And convince folks to stop idolizing gov’t. /rant GWB Feb 17 2020 at 8:35 am *sigh* And I somehow screwed up my closing tag at the end of the very first line. Sorry. Roland Deschain Feb 17 2020 at 12:40 pm How do you propose that we show the demonrats that they are wrong? They have already shown that they could care less about facts. They are driven my emotion….hatred for Trump and We The People! DogByte6RER Feb 17 2020 at 10:59 am For Presidents’ Day (what was once called Washington’s Birthday) they say that history reserves one line for US Presidents. I’ve thought that DJT, i.e., Donaldus Magnus, could have the line … Trump: Saved the Republic from the Deep State. Other one liners … Washington: Father of the United States. Lincoln: Freed the Slaves. Reagan: Won the Cold War. Obama: 1st Affirmative Action President. chris muir Feb 17 2020 at 1:23 pm https://twitter.com/i/status/1228768292388659201 Awesome. Pamela Feb 17 2020 at 1:36 pm That takes major driving skills and practice to be able to drift the Beast backwards. HOT DAMN! JTC Feb 17 2020 at 9:51 pm Or, mad ‘puter/simulator skills… 🙂 JTC Feb 17 2020 at 1:39 pm Love it. Also awesome. And REAL! From the Perfesser’s place: “Virginia House Bill 961 — “a ban under the guise of compromise” — was tabled for a full year by the state Senate Judiciary Committee. Townhall’s Lawrence Keane warned last week that the bill would have banned “the sale of semiautomatic firearms that are commonly used for self-defense, recreational and competitive shooting and hunting, as well as suppressors.” Worse, “standard capacity magazine possession would become a crime” under HD961 — or would have, had it passed. That seemed the likely result just up until minutes ago. It would be fair to guess that last month’s huge Second Amendment rally weighed on committee members’ minds as they voted to table 961.” The war is a series of battles fought one at a time.
