Alabama Sno-geddon!!! check in...got pics?

Here in Harper Lee ville, it has been coming down for over a couple of hours and more predicted till wee hours.
a serious respectable amount. Sticking well to decks and stuff, little less stick to the wet lawns, but since the temps are dipping to high 20's, it should be around early am.
I expect to take pics tomorrow. First snow since 2010.

What about you?

Remember what happened to the FIRST guy who said kings were above the law:


At his trial in 1649, Charles I defended himself: ""No learned lawyer will affirm that an impeachment can lie against the King... one of their maxims is, that the King can do no wrong."

The great-grandfathers of the authors of the Constitution cut off Charles' head for that.

A reality check, in case you think you are the only one who has noticed:

Here's some examples how the tax bill favors Congress members.

Key GOP lawmakers maintain close ties to individuals connected to the booze industry.

The tax cut legislation includes a provision that cuts taxes on beer, wine, and liquor produced or imported into the country, saving companies involved around $4.2 billion over 10 years:

Sen. Bluntís son Andy Blunt is a registered lobbyist for MillerCoors
Sen. John McCain's wife McCain, owns of Hensley Beverage, a major beer distributor. Hensley Beverageís trade group, National Beer Wholesalers Association, lobbied in support of the very same special tax cuts that are in the bill.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, voted for opening drilling in Alaska. Her sister works for the Waterfall Foundation, an Alaska-based charity,
which has an oil biz. Board member and which gets big donations from oil industry.

McCain, who gets tax payer cancer treatment, just voted to vote to end Medicare cancer treatment

And we paid him to do it.

The last time these cuts were triggered, cancer patients were denied treatment. And it's going to happen again. The last time it was resolved when the government shutdown ended. This time it's permanent.

MY cancer is being treated under a Medicare grant that allows rural hospitals to treat cancer locally instead of making them drive 4 hours round trip for their chemo and tests.

anyone who has had a close encounter with cancer ( family, friends, maybe themselves) knows how physically demanding treatment can be.
WE paid for McCain's treatment, but he decides we don't get the same thing.

I am seeing red right now and very glad I do not own a weapon.

This Congress has declared war on anyone who is not a rich white male. period.
We can't afford to be nice against this form of genocide.

JarVanka has a sad.....

She owns a 2 bedroom condo in Manhatten, had it up for sale, no takers, so decided to rent it out, @ 15K a month,,,no takers.
reduced price to 13K a month..no takers

Also..same site link....Trump Tower condos are going on the market, but no takers.

For some reason, the name Trump is not as lustrous to buyers as it once was.

Moore defender sez 40 years ago men married young girls, so there!

40 years ago was 1977......

in his early thirties, Moore had a penchant for dating teenagers. Apparently, this was not an uncommon occurrence during this time. In fact, this practice has a long history


Snip:
To have a large family, the wife must start having kids when she is young. The husband needs to be well-established and able to support the family, in which case he will typically need to marry when older


Snip:
Whatís the big deal about a 32-year-old man courting a 14-year-old girl?
My maternal grandmother was 15 years old when she married and 16 years old when she conceived her first child. Her husband was 41 and 42. They had 10 children during the next 20 years. This was normal back then. Iím sure it was normal in Alabama 40 years ago as well. The age of consent in Alabama even today is 16 (with parental consent


**Moore married at 38, his wife was 24 at the time.

Then he goes on to dismiss the victims, saying that 40 years ago was too long in the past for accurate memories.

Lastly, "even if" the charges are true,
All voting is voting for the lesser of two evils, and itís almost never wrong to vote for the lesser of the two.
So vote Moore because Doug Jones is EVIL and oks baby killing.
