Wow! Slim pickins’ for the Talking Heads. Merry Christmas all around.
Morning AB, All, and, of course, a very Merry Christmas to all.
Thank you AB for reliably doing this thread weekly, even on Christmas morn. Thank you Bray for weekly wisdom, and thank yon commenters for taking your time to help flesh it all out for us.
The Week Just Passed
So Kelly Conway got the title of “Trump Whisperer”. That’s the name I saw somewhere for her position and I like it. For I truly think that Kellyann Conway had The Donald’s ear.
Sean Spicer was name the public relations guy. Don’t know Spicer, don’t remember him. But the appointment seems well received so let me shut up.
How about that stock market? This year so far, which is pretty close to ending, I made $9,000 on the stock market! I said that no matter who won, so long as it was a Republican, that stock market was going to roar.
Because there’s a bounty of technology out there awaiting creation and practical use, and none of it includes stupid sunbeam energy or electric cars.
Consider, for example, the drone. Come on, drones are the future. I call up the hardware store and show them a pic of a part I need. Boom, within minutes a drone delivers it to my house. Or pizza! Why couldn’t a drone deliver my pizza?
There’s a lot to do with that technology, including creating “drone highways” and drone regulations, enough to keep the politicos happy with making laws as they love to do. But with these Obama people nobody was going to sink a lot of bucks into these new technologies. With the Republicans in charge, especially Donald Trump, it’s a whole different economy.
How about Obama flipping Israel the finger one last time? As I am to understand it, there was some kind of invasion by the absolute worst military types on the planet. I speak of the Muslims, of course. The Muslim preferred way of making war is to strap suicide bombs on themselves and blow everything around them up.
Israel managed to not only stop the invasion, Israel gained, in that manner of warfare, some land that allegedly was owned by Palestine. Although we all know Palestine is a bunch of reprobates, thugs and thieves that no Arab country wants, the UN expects Israel to tolerate those losers.
So that lawfully won land is being used for .HORRORS! THEY ARE DARING TO BUILD SETTLEMENTS UPON IT. Guys we’re talking this going on for over fifty years now, for God’s sake, stop worrying about the losers Palestinians and give our only friend in that region some support.
But Obama, no, he has to be an asshole towards Israel, pulling America out of the vote so the stupid UN can condemn Israel for daring to build houses on their own land.
Does anybody remember Arafat? Yeah, the one Hillary kissed his ass publicly? He’s now buried in someone’s garden and is remembered as the asshole he was.
Finally, so a couple of “husbands” see Ivanka Trump, her husband and kids, boarding a commercial air flight. So sweet, Mr. Bob and Mr. Joe. They are married you know?
So Mr. Bob makes a jerk out of himself and Mr. Joe joyfully brags on Facebook about mistreating an innocent but classy woman only trying to travel in peace.
Turns out that one of these “husbands” wrote a book and everybody’s getting online and lambasting his book.
I LOVE IT!
Cause people, we got to fight back against these assholes who think they can act like .well assholes, and gain our admiration.
As I understand it, Mr. Joe has gone into hiding and pulled down his book reviews.
Maybe we can’t go out and riot. Maybe we can’t count the votes for no good reason. Maybe we don’t bribe the electors of the electoral college. But give us any opening and we are going to fight back.
On A Personal Note
Got a Diane Feinstein story but first, had the custody hearing of my granddaughter, who was given to her father as her mother-my daughter- is nuts. Much more about this story later perhaps but this is good news. The last thing would be for Munchaussen-afflicted daughter to get custody of that beautiful child.
So me and Diane Feinstein, my friend Pat who I call that because, well, she looks exactly like Diane Feinstein .we go to the “midnight mass”. Only in Sussex county Delaware midnight is 9pm.
Now I don’t know what happened to the choir. Me and Feinstein both took a leave from the choir because we got a new director and so many things changed. The church is hiring a new music director so once that’s all in place perhaps many will come back. Right now they got only like 12 people and no men!
So Feinstein and I are sitting out with the people and no, people, no. I used to be at the front of that balcony where the choir sings and forgive my lack of humility, but my voice projected out over that congregation much much better than what they have now.
But there was me and Feinstein and don’t know if y’all knew it, but Diana Feinstein has one gorgeous voice and she was a song leader often. At one point in her life, Feinstein actually sang in musicals up in Wilmington.
And there’s this little tiny choir up their singing but not to fear. Me and Diane Feinstein saved the day.
First, heh, my voice is about fifty nine octives below Diane Feinstein and too often when we sit together, I might drown her out.
But not last night. Feinstein sang in that place we were in the middle of the church and it was beautiful.
Well of course I had to get all involved. So I sang harmony.
Well it’s in my bucket list, to sing a duet with Diane Feinstein. I think our voices would be great together.
Our voices DO sound great together.
We sang O Holy Night, Silent Night, What Child is This ..every song I sang with Feinstein in my right pleasant voice capable of a three note range, while Feinstein sang out, she sang out .hey folks, ME AND HER over sang the choir!
After the mass everybody was coming up and complimenting us .well more Feinstein than me but I didn’t care. Feinstein was so gloriously happy cause she does so love to sing.
And I don’t care what they say .I bought something to the table. Feinstein got more flattery than me but that’s ok.
She deserved it.
Merry Christmas all and tell us what’s going on out there.
Merry Christmas to everyone here freepers are the best of the best especially on this thread. thanks for everything you all do here
5 shows; 2 are pre-empted, and 2 more are "analysts and journalists.....". Makes you wonder if the Clinton Foundation told ABC the under-the-table contributions to keep George on the air have stopped, since they don't need him anymore. This could be a permanent pre-emption for the George show.
And the "analysts and journalists..."? Those descriptions you have posted sound like what you see for informercials on the cable guide. Watching liberals explain why Hillary lost can get boring after a while.
If Fox turns out to the only Sunday morning chit chat show left, can we start talking about fishing shows instead?
ping for later
Newt explained to Wallace what a trump presidency will be like and how he will have Total Access to jump whenever he needs it
