    Also, responding here to my own post about Huckabee....and since I mentioned it was just this past week that Huckabee put out a defense of Josh Duggar.

    Now Huckabee is representative of the evangelical base of the Republican party and the Duggars are perceived as Evangelical..... seems so crass and political. Though Josh Duggar, well the story is not quite out on him yet. Wiser mouths would have remained shut.

    Why was a police report filed? I mean, my brother sneaks into my house in stealth of night and molests my young self. My parents find out, I pray and am punished. Would my parents file a police report?

    How did the police report come into the picture? And if you want my opinion though nobody asked for it I think a teacher or guidance counselor reported it.

    There’s more to this story and not much in Mike Huckabee, although he seems likeable.

    I like your answer Bray and pretty much agree.

    Honestly I think his show was doing bad on Fox and they made a deal to have him quit and run for President.

    Thereby Fox has more publicity, Huckabee keeps some sort of pride and who knows, there’s an off-chance he might get nominated!

    Morning AB, All.

    Today is Penticost, am singing this morning.

    Happy Memorial Day to all, always remember those who fought for us that we may partake of this thread weekly with no fear of jail.

    Except should one mention their Blog and then some weird Blog haters come out of the woodwork.

    Anyway, thank you AB for doing this thread.

    Am watching the Hillary email....heh. about the Duggar boy? I am not trying to start a war but the kid molested five of his sisters as they slept. A police report got filed but unclear why.

    Whatever the case the argument that this is not fair, that Josh Duggar has been punished and repented, did not repeat...TRUE.

    But to have a show like the doesn’t play well in Peoria is what I’m saying here.

    Anyway I’ll be around until church time then I shall be back.

    what makes Fiorina a good candidate for the second spot?

    I will give you the answer. First this HP thing means nothing to but a few voters. Nobody's going to care much about her allegedly running HP into the ground. She worked there five years for goodness sake. Most jobs last around that long so it's not like she killed the company within a year. AND...HP is still very much around so....I don't think it's going to matter all that much.

    Beyond ask what makes her a good candidate for the second spot......SHE'S A WOMAN!

    Because if the Republicans have not learned a thing they should know to get some sort of decent representative of a so-called "minority" out there representing the Republican party. Cause few people don't like Obama because of his race, come on. And plenty of Republicans will vote for Ben Carson.

    Firorini is way above Hillary and so far she seems to be the only female out there seeking the job. She talks a good game and what else do we have to judge these people by but their verbiage.

    On talent and experience alone, the VP slot maybe belongs to a Huckabee....or a Santorum. But Fiorina, she's a female. Bout time the Republicans get some females out there else the world will think Hillary is some sort of typical American female.

    Morning AB, All,

    As always thank you AB for doing this thread and the folks ain’t showin’ up, give them hell Harry!

    Had to sing this morning and choir guy wanted me to stay after mass and sing some more for the May Day Mary Processional, something about he couldn’t get a keyboard outside.

    Don’t ask me.

    I scurried off because I left my dogs out in the back yard and as I always do until I get comfortable with them, I worried whether they got out or not.

    Last week both of daughter’s dogs got out...TWICE! Once they were found up on the big highway! Had to keep them inside, only outside if one of them go with dogs. Yesterday she went out and bought a bale of chicken wire, some fence posts and I dunno.....she said she fixed it. Girl can be amazing when she puts her mind to it but the doctors and hospitals beckon .

    So I’m sitting here kind of mellow and thought I’d share my thoughts on the current crop of presidential/vice-presidential nominees now all coming forward.

    I include this “vice-presidential” thing because do not be fooled, they are auditioning for this part, especially one who would be perfect for the job, more on this later.

    Okay, the Republican possible/probable contenders. NJ’s Christy, Rubio, Cruz, Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorino, John Kasich (who threw in his bid this very Sunday morning), Lindsay Graham, Walker, Mike Huckabee, Donald Trump..

    Ted Cruz is going to get the nomination, I predict. Bearing in mind I’m right on predictions about as often as Dick Morris.

    I think Carly Fiorino would be a perfect VP choice for any of the guys currently trying to get the nod. I really do.

    I know she’s from California, suspect that right there. But she’s bright, speaks well, could be a nod to the nutty GOPe. Meanwhile Carly’s got visions of a presidency in her mind and it’s time, like it of not, for a woman to be president. And it ain’t gonna be Hillary, give me a break.

    I like Rubio though he shot himself in the foot with his immigration stance. There’s way more to our immigration issues out here in la-la land than the GOP Blue Blood elite want to try to understand. If he somehow could recover from that gaffe I rather like Rubio.

    I mentally have Walker in a tie with Rubio but I dunno, Walker has immigration mumble-mumbles in his past. I’m sticking with a tie between those two in terms of odds.

    Donald Trump is a publicity hound, don’t tell me not. John Kasich is seeking a quick and slick VP nomination. Mike Huckabee, hey I really believe this guy got fired from Fox due to his Saturday show not doing too well. To save face they allowed him to say he’s running for President and he HAD to quit the Fox gig.

    Christy of NJ could slip into (well he’d need a little grease) a VP slot....I bet Christy imagines himself as a Dick Cheney sort, the scary behind the smile.

    I’m saying Lindsay Graham is looking for a VP slot or maybe a gig on Fox news.

    As for Jeb Bush.....he’s formidable, I’ve no doubt. He’s got the bucks. If he could somehow get a VP that helped calm the base....well even with that I don’t think he’d make it. But I dunno...a Jeb Bush/Ted Cruz ticket? It’s a stretch but only something like that would have me voting for Jeb Bush.

    That’s my take on the Republicans.

    Want to me to do the Democrats?

    I find it extremely interesting that Chris Wallace even brought up the issue of Graham’s marital status....especially at this time when he’s announcing plans to run for president.

    An the way he broached the subject I thought interesting....under the guise of perhaps raising his little sister prevented him from marrying though I don’t for a minute think anyone would buy that at a reason for not marrying.

    Graham’s what? Close to age 50 I’d think. If you ain’t married by this age it isn’t because you’re still raising your little sister.

    I argue the issue was brought up for a reasons because....come on....WHERE ARE THE FEMALES IN HIS LIFE?

    How much you wanna bet Lindsay runs on the Jeb Bush ticket?

    Lindsay Graham tells interesting story this morning on Fox News Sunday, something I didn’t know.

    First of all, of note, Wallace asks Graham , kin of, sort of, why he isn’t married. Interesting. Honestly I didn’t know Lindsay Graham isn’t married but surely, good looking guy, politico of some reknown.....why ISN’T he married?

    Then Wallace tells Graham’s childhood story of parents dying and how he-Graham, raised his younger sister.

    If you ask me sad childhoods are all the rage. Rubio’s got Cuban parents and a Dad who almost deserted them. Ted Cruz too has some kind of sad story....wait, it was HIS father who almost deserted them.

    Hillary was named after the mountain climber by her lying mother and Jeb Bush is weary of competing with family.

    So boo hoo.

    And really, why isn’t Lindsay Graham married? Does he have a girlfriend?

    enquiring minds want to know.

    Morning AB, All….

    Thank you AB, for every week doing this thread, so good to see you all every week, yon commenters and Freep friends.

    Since there is currently ongoing a Freepathon may I put in a plug, for what it is worth?

    FreeRepublic is not the most glamorous of web sites. There aren’t cartoons jumping out at you, games to play if bored, cute sound effects, colors galore.

    But while other web sites get “cooler” and crazier and difficult to understand or navigate, FreeRepublic has a plain but very effective site, easily navigable and understandable.

    I might add there is no advertisement and I know the world runs on advertisement. But it is nice to know that when all else fails, there is one site to easily click in to see current news without a lot of effort and frustration for the constant pop-up ads that blow our minds.

    So give a few bucks to the freepathon and keep this site around. You will miss it more than you know should it go away.

    Moving on, I am fascinated by that horror of a female from ESPN acting like such a jerk at the garage to pick up her car.

    Man I dislike mean people; people who are mean just for the joy of being mean. And this McHEnry woman is a great big zero and should be fired.

    Also….well I’m still sick of Hillary. Anybody else?

    So I am now caring for FIVE dogs.


    Last year when former son-in-law was still around he got it into his head to breed American bull dogs. So they went out and bought one, then got male, on e female.

    Well they were supposed to keep them apart but you know how those things go.

    Cookie....mate of Oreo and yes these are their names, gave birth to eleven puppies, one died at birth, this past Thanksgiving.

    By this time former son-in-law is just that.....former. So Melissa delivered and cared for all those puppies. Did she make any money from them? Hell no. Cause it was just too much money to pay the vet bill, feed them....-plus the two adult dogs please note. Eventually she gave me one....Blanca....kept a pup, and gave the rest of them away.

    so she has Cookie the female and Oreo the male and Hope, a puppy. Meanwhile I have Jackie the rescue dog I got year ago when my own dog died and I was a mess living without a dog.

    Now it’s time for Oreo to go because no way can Melissa keep him. Two female dogs, mother and daughter....that will work fine. This is really a nice breed though Blanca needs more food than is on the planet.

    So lady walking down the street, I say my daughter’s dog Oreo....she’s giving him up. Lady is all excited....can I see it?

    So I call daughter, she brings Oreo over on a leash. This was the first time Oreo’s seen his daughter for a couple of months.

    Honestly they both carried on like nuts, Oreo whining with joy and kissing Blanca. Meanwhile lady what wants him is like super impressed. Jackie....meanwhile, is all jealous with Oreo making over Blanca because Jackie desperately loves Blanca.

    Got all that?

    It was quite the scene.

    American bull dogs are NOT pit bulls. They are like French bull dogs only with long legs.

    They are mostly guard dogs, get along well with kids and other animals. Blanca loves the cats and they all, mostly , love her.

    Know anybody what wants one?

    Here’s the thing.

    I certainly understand a florist might not want to cater a same sex wedding.

    But most of us agree that to deny serving a hamburger to someone based on their sexual preference is just plain wrong.

    I’m saying this is a very vague situation here and again, I assert that there are probably very few businesses turning down money for refusing such service.

    Just a hunch on my part.

    so the media and the gay lobby get all on a big horse and neigh bejeesus over the one or two businesses that are so devoted and frankly guys, it seems like a no-deal to me.

    Now I know that RFRA was passed federally and by many states. But it’s become a sword to spear Republicans with and it’s so unimportant in the scheme of things.

    By having Pence and the Arkansas Governor get up there all sorry’s just bad, bad, bad dynamics.

    The Republicans need to find a way to walk away from all this, but not by holding press conferences and murmuring how sorry we are.

    Again, I’m conflicted and troubled.

    So Bobby Jindal on Meet the Depressed. Seems Louisiana is wanting to pass a law that will allow a business owner to refuse service if such service is at odds with their religious beliefs.

    Evidently somebody in Louisiana is trying to pass such a law but Jindal waltzed around it....says let him wait and see.

    I suppose my thoughts on this might not be popular in the Conservative community but I seriously wonder if this is a battle we want to fight.

    I lived through the Civil Rights movement of the mid-60’s. Back then it was fine for a business to not serve someone, say in a restaurant, if they are black.

    So the Civil rights act made such discrimination illegal, as well it should have as we know now some almost fifty years later.

    Why on earth would somebody object to arranging flowers, or catering, or photographing....a same sex wedding?

    PLEASE! this is a Devil’s Advocate question. I would not want to have anything to do with a same sex wedding I’m thinking. But if I owned a business that would make money on same....I really don’t think God would get mad at me if I provided a service.

    I also think a decent argument could be made that if America was ready to ban denial of service based on race they should do the same based on sexual preference.

    I don’t think passing laws to allow denial of service based on sexual preference is a good idea for the Republican party to go diving in to. My guess it’s probably very few businesses that turn down paying customers for such rigid beliefs.

    In other words, I am conflicted.

    I listened to that Cardinal and got some thoughts .

    First I am none too happy about this Pope. Cardinal Wuerl waxed on and on about Pope Francis, how wonderful he is, how he lives poorly, how the people identify with him.

    It’s like something out of Walt Disney, give me a break. Christians are being beheaded and murdered all over the world. Of course Wuerl said this should not be.

    What would be better is for the Pope to stop cancelling his own newspapers and get out there and make a public stand against such brutality.

    Some unknown Cardinal on Fox News Sunday is NOT the ticket.

    Good morning AB, All,

    Happy Easter and a special thank you to AB this morning for setting up this thread on this holiest of days.

    Been watching the Iran thing, been watching the media go after Cruz and Walker, been watching mine state of Delaware vote in the state senate to ban the death penalty.

    Seems Delawareans been burning the phone lines to the legislators to ban the death penalty, goodness they couldn’t sleep at night.


    Does anybody know the name Thomas Capano?

    Cause Delaware once had the death penalty but due to a mass movement to eliminate same…NOT (AMERICANS WANT THE DEATH PENALTY!)….it was eliminated.

    So Thomas Capano, a fat nothing burger who killed his girlfriend and stuffed her body into a cooler to float at sea, escaped the death penalty because of this.

    Capano has since died but now there are people ON death row who will be exempted from the elimination of the Delaware death penalty.

    So over here we have murderers who will die. Here we have murderers who will NOT die. And here, thank to Pete Schwartzkopf, the only Sussex county Democrat and he wants cop killers killed by needle….well here are the cop killers who will die by slow torture.

    COME ON WITH THIS! What, did the President-whisperer Valerie Jarrett phone up Markell and tell him to pass an elimination of the death penalty because it’s what Delaware needs?

    They pass laws for politics, never mind the common sense of it.

    And Americans DO want the death penalty.

    Anyway, that’s my rant.

    I feed her twice a day, same as the rescue dog....which is twice her size. And the rescue dog ain’t getting real skinny with winter being part of that matter.

    I worry myself to death I’m not feeding her much does a six month old puppy eat for God’s sakes?

    The world’s turned upside down.

    Morning AB, All.

    Thank you for reliably doing this thread especially this Palm Sunday.

    Which reminds me that I am singing at the 10 am mass.

    I simply must tell y’all my story about my efforts to be confirmed. Seems the pope might have to get involved.

    Meanwhile…thank you AB and yon wise commenters who make me wiser.

    Will be talking more upon my return.

    Perhaps the idea was to draw attention to Starbucks -- and it did!

    I don't believe that for a minute. Else why the hell wouldn't every business just boom, wake up and decide to tout race relations on their products if it leads to 52 week highs?

    I think Starbucks did a stupid thing and the monetary results of this thing won't be felt by that company for at least a week or two. Now I don't why they did a stupid thing, whether the company's normal liberalism and , let's face it, only rich liberals buy five buck a cup coffee every day, sometimes couple times a day. Or maybe they did it at Al Sharpton's urging, Jesse Jckson.

    It was NOT a good business move else they'd keep on doing it, right?

    Any attention they got will NOT be good.

    Also, thank me very’s my stock tip....Buy stock in Dunkin’ Donuts.

    Cause Starbucks is ceasing its dumb Race Discussion or whatever, this tactic soon to go down in history as the dumbest move made by a corporation in the last century.

    It’s not what selling coffee’s about....consider this a big lib lesson. If our GOP-e had a clue they’d be using just this as an example.

    You can believe Starbucks suffered and they suffered greatly.

    Evidently that company gets some kind of tax break or good locations and yeah, they’re a bunch of stupid libs. But hey take commands from the administration but you got to know Obama’s probably a Starbucks drinker.

    But man, we should bow down and thank these people because the LAST thing people want to do over morning coffee is discuss race, I’ll go out on a limb and suggest both blacks and whites didn’t much care for this.

    And I’m thinking the baritas hated it, dear Lord they were the innocent messengers.

    Someday we’ll all sit around talking about this being the damn dumbest move made by a corporation over the centuries.

    It’s NOT what selling coffee is about.

    Meanwhile, yon reader, BUY STOCK IN DUNKING DONUTS!

    As always thank you AB for doing this thread and thank yon commenters for providing insight with the commentary.

    Singing at the 10 am mass this morn but will return to join in. All is on DVR.

    I am interested in this Israel thing as President Obama has pulled out all the stops. This administration rides on the all-encompassing power of the US presidency, not from some sort of international respect for the brilliance of Obama and his president-whisperer-Valerie Jarrett.

    The UN threatens to condemn Israel, go to hell what a bunch of nothing-burgers. Now you know Jarrett put such a motion into action. And the European union threatens nasty stuff to Israel.

    All because a nothing-burger became US President and that is the most powerful position in the world.

    This thing with Israel might just be the step too far that we all hope Obama will make.

    But who knows….the attitude by the opposition party and the disgruntled Democrats is to let this guy live out his term and pray he doesn’t destroy too much in the interim.

    Meanwhile all our checks and balances built into our government are ignored in deference to political correctness.

    Aw bullshit….somwehre out there is a hero and I think he is Bibi Netanyahu.

    Thank you.

    On Face the Nation the talking heads, especialy some slimey-smiling reporter from the WAPO and one from the NY Times, are having a ball making fun of Tom suggested that Tom Cotton send a letter to Netenyahu informing him that if he wins the next administration won’t like him.

    Tongue in cheeky but not cute at all. Like these so-called journalists are the arbiters of good taste. Tom Cotton served in Afghanistan and Iraq. The journalists held down the desks and defended Hillary.

    So my daughter, who has Munchaussen’s disease...which is people that fake, as I type, out front and working like the devil on my yard.

    She’s been over here for almost three hours and she don’t stop, she rakes and stoops and scoops. Damn if she ain’t getting it all done! I got two leaf blowers, gas and electric, but she says no,,,,,the rake will do.

    I work with her but she does most....the deal with me buying her a house was that she do stuff lie this.

    And she’s JUST FINE!

    Not one word of ache or pain....six weeks ago she had a hysterectomy and wore a pillow over he stomach for four of those weeks.

    Sad. Not a single thing wrong with that girl. She wadded up her life and threw right down the toilet. She’s smart, pretty, witty.....

    ....and she can work when she has to!

    Anyway, good morning, me and her. I hooked up the Kindle and speakers and we danced and worked. Two dogs, one black, one white....joined us. Melissa cleaning and dancing and singing and raking.

    Tired but I’m still reading the thread and watching the shows.

    And I got opinions I’ll share for free.

    Karl Rove is a chubby guy, true, but by me he just gets fatter.

    I can’t get over this Adam Schiff guy. How can these people go to sleep as they defend Hillary. She is the most horrible woman , not nice at all. She thinks she should have a private email server and so she shall. And those with no pride who sell their souls shall go on the Sunday talk shows and defend her.

    And Juan Williams! Comparing the Bush firing of the attorneys to Hillary’s crap.

    They all owe that woman. They all owe her for their scoops and maybe some choice assignments....because it sure ain’t for her intelligence, honesty or integrity that they defend her.

    selling their souls.

    Morning AB, All,

    Weather turning nicey nice here and last fall’s leaves still lay comfortably upon my lawns.

    Munchaussen daughter helping today, in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost….she has recovered from the hysterectomy I firmly believe she did not need. But she had weeks of walking around with pillow on stomach including in stores and in public, that the world should know there is an operation scar upon her belly, feel sympathy for me. Finally I had to tell her to drop the freaking pillow, that I never seen anybody walk around in public with a pillow, that she looked stupid. And let’s not forget the bedhead “sick chic” look that she likes to sport to garner more sympathy.

    Alas do not cry for me Argentina as the girl really is getting much better. She even called up the doctors and asked how long she needed to use the pillow and they told her, insert chuckle here, maybe three or four days, tops. She walked around like a goofball for FIVE WEEKS wearing the pillow.

    And yes, you may laugh. I am sorry but my mockery and ridicule is working with her. It seems to be the only thing that works, surely a lifetime of medicos not dealing with her REAL problem hasn’t helped. Also I tell anyone in my surround about her Munchaussen craziness because that too helps quell the weird behavior.

    I shall either go to heaven for my patience or possibly star on Dr. Phil.

    Thank you AB for doing this thread and to yon commenters who make me wiser.

    I been watching the Hillary email flap and sure hope that this matter is dealt with intensely in today’s political talk shows.


    I know that if Donald Rumsfeld, for example, were discovered to have an email server in his house that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi would be holding press conferences lambasting such a thing. I’ve not seen Mumbles McConnell or John Boehner or any of the potential candidates say a word about yet another Clinton flipping the world the bird, Queen Hillary is way too important to bother with the rules.

    Lord I despise that woman.

    **-oops! I wrote the above before seeing AB’s compilation of today’s shows and guests. I note Mumbles McConnell is on one so let’s see what he has to say about Hillary.

    Amen to that!

    My beloved husband once had a neon green shag rug as a hippie teenager and he loved wall to wall carpeting.
