I'm keeping my eye on the conservative news. glrogers67 I hope they will go after Hilary for her crimes. I hope this whole investigation turns up where the real problem is and I don't think it's in the White House.
I just stopped by to say, "Hi everyone!" here I am again for a quick post. DH is out of the hosp. He came home on Wed. He went in for dizziness and he's still getting some. And things continue to be really busy. I'm going out of town this weekend so I'm trying to get organized for that. I probably won't be back here till next week. I'm hoping things will settle down here but we are starting more projects around the house. I hope all are well and enjoying Memorial Day.
I hope it's okay that I started this week's thread.
Absolutely, anyone can start the thread for the week. I kind of expected everybody to be busy for the Memorial Day weekend. Mine is just a normal weekend like every other working at Walmart. Today is my regular day off, not just because it's Memorial Day and I am doing laundry and washing both cars. Still getting acquainted with my new computer and I'm starting to like it better now that I figured out how to make my mouse pointer more visible and the problems I was having with the type-ahead buffer seem to have cleared up. Hope everybody had a happy holiday weekend. Onward and upward with making America great again!
Gary, we are fed so many different stories it is difficult to tell fact from fiction anymore. You are right too much of the tax payers money is spent on investigations that tell us nothing. Probably there was nothing there in the first place or there is a cover up.
Two funnies in the news, Connecticut is going bankrupt! It seems the rich folks there don't like the Robin Hood attitude of steal from the rich and give to the poor. They are leaving to go on to greener pastures. I have a couple of friends that live there, taxed, taxed and taxed more.
The second, remember Obama opening the doors to Cuba??? Wonderful vacations for Americans, well the Americans "ain't" buying it. Airlines cutting back and cutting off flights. Right where I want to vacation,in a dictatorship. Good one, Obama.
One extra little funny, Germany upset because the USA may not be giving them any money anymore. I don't know all the ramifications, except other countries only love us when we give them money or our leaders stand in line when they bend over.
Hello fellow conservatives. It's been a while...too much going on in life and simply did not have time for any extra curricular activities. All is well, it's just that sometimes life gets in the way of things.
Manchester....such evilness, and apparently this monster and his cell had been under surveillience on and off; I don't blame law enforcement, apparently there are more than 20000 peeps under investigation in the UK. I blame the people close to these monsters. And now neighbors have been coming forward...but people are afraid to say anything because they will be slammed as "racist".
The Texas republican....how many conflicting stories? He claims he was assaulted by the Dem (Pancho) but Pancho at first blamed the Tex Repub. Today it comes out that Pancho admits he roughed up the republican guy because "he's a racist". and why is that? because the republican guy called ICE because dozens of illegals were swarming the building where lawmakers were gathering for something. Here is what a CNN reporter says about this assault: From the Daily Caller: "CNN’s Kate Bolduan downplayed a Democrat politician’s assault on his Republican colleague as being “democracy in action” Tuesday morning. "
"After playing a clip of Texas Democrat Poncho Nevarez saying “I got in his face and I put my hands on the guy, Bolduan described the scene as “in some strange way, democracy in action.” Notably, many of the “protesters” Bolduan referred to were believed to be illegal immigrants, whose disruption of the political process hardly constitutes a constructive part of democracy. Had a Republican politician physically assaulted a Democrat colleague, would the team at CNN be so dismissive and cavalier in their reporting of it?" End of quote from Daily Caller Seriously....can you just imagine if a republican manhandled Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid or any other Dem? The mainstream media would be all over it calling for immediate action against whomever. But...naahhhhhhh....the republican DESERVED IT.....because the DEM claims "he's racist". Define racist: I'm against illegal immigration...YOU ARE A RACIST. I'm against non-citizens voting...YOU ARE A RACIST. I'm against illegals getting free health care and instate tuition to college when their parents don't pay one cent towards state taxes...YOU ARE A RACIST.
And then take a look at their "scholarship" list and the requirements....no white guys need apply.. And what the hell is this "requirement" for a scholarship: "high level of loan indebtedness". What does that mean? You have to be in overdraft on other college loans in order to be considered for a scholarship? Do these sponsors of scholarships know what they are giving their money to? Wow talk about being racist!!!
And that brings me to Kathy Griffen and her disgusting "photo shoot" (Geric...I'm so infuriated by this!!!). I really do hope the secret service comes down hard on her and her photog friend....it is like she thinks what ISIS does to reporters and others that don't agree with them is okay....off with their heads!! What a sick sick sick thing to do, and then grin about it and laugh about it and try to justify it....it is just SICK. The thing of it is....if someone did that with an Obama head.....RACIST RACIST RACIST....no jobs for you, black listed, etc. The sad thing is.....PRESIDENT TRUMP is not black...so, what does the media say about KATHY GRIFFEN trump hater? She HATES WHITE MEN WITH POWER....hnmmm, just does not have the "uumppph" to get her unemployed does it? What a sad state of affairs.
Update....Griffen says "shes sorry, she went too far". Too late for that. I hope she never gets hired for anything again. Sicko. I guess she was not expecting such a huge backlash on social media.
And as much as I love Marvel....I will not go out of my way to spend any $$$ on their stuff.....their "Hollywood Stars" should keep their mouths shut.......I predict that box office $$$ will start to see the backlash. Why can't these asshats just shut up and act or sing? I really REALLY don't want their opinion......do you?
Oh, meant to say...Gary, glad to see you are doing well with NutriSystem....but you say you only lost one pound this last week? Stick with the PLAN. It is costing you money....it works if you work with it and don't give in to temptation!!!! You are doing great....don't stray from the plan!!!
Forgot to mention Tim Kaine's son and his participation (allegedly) in a violent anti-trump demonstration. Tim Kaine, in case anyone is wondering who the hell Tim Kaine is, was the vice presidential pick of Hillary Clinton.
From Brietbart news:
Less than two months before his son was arrested after the anti-Trump and anti-free speech riot, Kaine said on MSNBC that progressives must “fight in the streets” after Trump’s election.
“What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now there’s the momentum to be able to do this,” Kaine told MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski on Jan. 31.
Clad in black and wearing a mask, the youngest son of Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine wrested himself from the cop and then “squared off” with him.
Woody Kaine, 24, was among five masked, black-garbed people suspected of lobbing a smoke bomb minutes earlier inside the Minnesota Capitol rotunda Saturday afternoon.
Officers had chased him down, but Kaine wasn’t about to submit, according to a more detailed account provided Wednesday by St. Paul police.
In the end, it took three officers, a “knee strike” and a chemical spray to subdue Kaine after he was identified as one of the counterprotesters [sic] who allegedly used fireworks or a smoke bomb to disrupt a rally in support of President Donald Trump at the Minnesota State Capitol, according to police spokesman Steve Linders.
After his son’s arrest, Kaine issued a statement that did not appear to condemn his son’s alleged actions.
“We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues. They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully,” Kaine said, as reported by Breitbart News.
I am sooooo happy we have a PRESIDENT TRUMP. I have not even wandered over to "the others"....i'm sure it is much of the same. Get over it already. I suffered 8 years of Obama....you can't even get thru one day?
Sorry, one more thing....the students at Evergreen State College were UPSET because a professor refused to comply with one of their demands: NO WHITE STUDENTS OR PROFESSORS ON CAMPUS DAY. Can you believe this crap? And this professor is a "progressive" apparently. What the hell? Can you imagine if white students demanded a no hispanic or black or asian day on campus? What in the world is up with these "colleges"?
California is the 2nd highest taxed state. Many businesses have left to set up shop where the requirements are lower I would love to leave but it would be difficult to move my DD who is developmentally disables. They just approved a increase for our gas. our democratic legislator took the money set aside for roads and spent it on something else, probably one of their pet projects. The streets where I live have huge pot holes. I am afraid it is going to ruin my car.
Lin, I am happy to see you back. I missed you It gets a wee bit quiet around here some times. I am tired today as I didn't sleep well last night. So I have not been paying attention to the news today.
I don't understand the Germans. We have quite a few military bases there which means their economy benefits as the service men and women spend a lot of money. I lived there for 4 years when my DH was stationed there.
