Pamela Dec 06 2018 at 12:17 am Careful sitting down Mr. President and anyone tries kicking will will find their toes crushed. JTC Dec 06 2018 at 12:12 pm “Careful sitting down Mr. President…” If what I think is true is true…it’s his own toes in danger. 🙂 Talk about some big ones! Deplorable B Woodman Dec 06 2018 at 12:40 am Brass? Or steel? cmblake6 Dec 06 2018 at 1:47 am Damnit, you stole my line! 😛 interventor Dec 06 2018 at 2:00 am Adamantium, with an Ubobtainium wash. Too Tall Dec 06 2018 at 2:00 am I’m thinking Titanium, or maybe Unobtainium. In Texas, is it “Huevos” or “Cojones.” Isn’t “Clang, Clang…” the intro to “Ding Dong, the Witch is Dead?” Old Codger Dec 06 2018 at 11:21 am In Texas either one is acceptable. Most of the time what I’ve heard is “cojones” but I have heard ’em referred to as “huevos” but “cojones” it more common. JTC Dec 06 2018 at 12:53 am Big brass ones. And “has”, not “had”. Spin Drift Dec 06 2018 at 12:57 am Don’t bells also clang? “White Squall” Spin WWG1WGA NotYetInACamp Dec 06 2018 at 1:03 am The Brass is back. formwiz Dec 06 2018 at 1:16 am I don’t think Trump needs any pep talks. I also think he knows what he has to do. Right now he’s winning on almost every front. Fronk! Dec 06 2018 at 1:30 am Cajones… What a concept! cmblake6 Dec 06 2018 at 1:49 am Especially in “the swamp”. cmblake6 Dec 06 2018 at 1:49 am I just want to see those things put into full blown operation! JTC Dec 06 2018 at 12:07 pm Dude. Ew. kadaka Dec 06 2018 at 5:02 pm Avenatti would’ve released the tape by now if there was one. Pete 231 Dec 06 2018 at 3:32 am The last frame shows three clang notes… Could it be that DJT, in addition to the standard load, is packing a spare third nard ? That would explain why a lot of boot-lickers lately are backing down from him….. Punta Gorda Dec 06 2018 at 4:12 am Tres Hombres? Great Album. MasterDiver Dec 06 2018 at 7:57 am That “Little Something Extra”! Zar Belk! PaulS Dec 06 2018 at 9:28 am The three amigos! 🙂 John D. Egbert Dec 06 2018 at 10:44 am Let’s hear it for lagniappe . . . eon Dec 06 2018 at 6:34 am Incidentally, if you want to read a brutal smackdown of the Deep State, the Democrats, and the left in general; https://spectator.us/camille-paglia-hillary-trump/ Yes, I know who it is, but this is one traditional liberal who is righteously pissed at her own political party. And what she has to say about President Trump, “deplorables”, and academia might surprise you. clear ether eon Browncoat Dec 06 2018 at 7:35 am Camille Paglia is just short of ‘right’. She has been dissing on the Democrats since Obama got appointed… Delilah T Dec 06 2018 at 8:58 am Thanks for the link, eon. She’s repeating what the rest of us know and recognize instinctively. Brad Dec 06 2018 at 12:08 pm She uses a lot of high-highfalutin words to say basically simple things. Pretty much all of what are called conservatives today could have happily been members of the Democrat Party of the thirties and forties. Paglia longs for the Democrat party of the fifties and sixties. There isn’t gonna be a return to the values of the past in either the GOP or the current DemoCRAP Party. The only way there will ever again be a major political party with a decent platform of philosophies is if a new one emerges to REPLACE one of the current ones. America will never have more than two major political parties. Right now it basically has ONE pro-globalist pro-OneWorldGovernment uniparty with two branches. Chris muir Dec 06 2018 at 1:01 pm This. Halley Dec 06 2018 at 2:03 pm Memory lane – back in the 90s Camille, bless her heart, helped me transition away from PC, and I devoured everything she wrote. But take a look at her voting record: OMG!!! 100% socialist/kooky-green/anti-American. She doesn’t practice what she preaches, which – regardless of her blazing insights into the arts and artists – makes it impossible for me to take her seriously anymore. She wants the criminal Dims in power – sorry, Camille, that’s unforgivable under any rationale. And by the way – are there people in the White House reading DBD? Delilah T Dec 06 2018 at 11:04 pm Paglia voted for Sanders, yes, but that took votes away from Clinton. In the general election, he received 6% of the vote in Vermont. The Bernie or Bust movement is often cited as one of the contributing factors in Hillary Clinton’s loss in the general election. Without his interference (even though he appeared to support her), things might have gone a different route. Would you rather have had Clinton declared the winner in 2016? gruundehn Dec 06 2018 at 2:29 pm The Duopoly has rules in place that prevent any serious effort to replace either from succeeding. To change the rules, a Third Party (Libertarians anyone?) must win and the Duopoly works hard to prevent that. I mention the Libertarians not only because I am an officer thereof, but because just about anyone here will agree with the Libertarian Party on at least one major issue. Moreso probably than any other party. JTC Dec 06 2018 at 4:14 pm Well I’m down with libertarianism just not Libertarianism, also independent but not Independent… funny how that’s kind of redundant. John Dec 06 2018 at 4:52 pm As a Libertarian myself I see a major flaw in our party ascending to prominence. The simple lack of, and indeed avoidance of, the teaching of old fashioned Rhetoric in our schools from junior high on. Of course the lack of said training was what allowed DJT to blindside the UniParty, but the presence of said training would have prevented this mess to begin with. kadaka Dec 06 2018 at 1:38 pm Is it high brass or low brass? Although I might’ve read that’s not as important when it’s time to shoot as the wad. Deplorable B Woodman Dec 06 2018 at 10:41 pm I see what you did there. And I applaud! Well played! JTC Dec 06 2018 at 3:18 pm The leftocracy has made the Dim party irrelevant for forty years, and DJT made the Rino party irrelevant in 2016 and beyond. JTC Dec 06 2018 at 4:09 pm Wonder if calling it party-fluid would attract some signallers? 🙂 John Dec 06 2018 at 5:03 pm The rise of the illiberal SJW religion (and make no mistake, it is one) has effectively split the Left, and the more effective they become the wider the split. There is a great deal of room for Liberals on the Right, strangely enough, because of their respect for the Individual. The real test will be who can unite the Right enough to actually consolidate and use the power to roll back the State and reinstate the Individual as a political force. A conservative SCOTUS is only a first step. Brad Dec 06 2018 at 5:39 pm A conservative SCOTUS won’t CAUSE anything to happen. It simply won’t ALLOW some things to happen. The closest it could come to CAUSING any change would be if challenges to already existing government overstepping were brought before it. I don’t expect to see that happen. interventor Dec 06 2018 at 11:01 pm SCOTUS may only challenge overstepping of existing government actions, if such are dragged before it and presented. Such is the necessary nature of the beast. Its not a secondary legislature. Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
