Kelly's compromised phone

Damn it, this is like a cheap mystery novel with a new bombshell daily.

Did he download something? Did someone else in the inner circle download something? (I wouldn't put it past these un American shitheads)

Never has this County seen anything even close to this and it appears the Russians are getting a great return on their investment.

You have a guide on how to act tRump

Unfortunately, you will still fuck it up.


“The president took a deep breath and steeled himself, and went into the first classroom. And what happened next I’ll never forget.

Person after person received an engulfing hug from our commander in chief. He’d say, “Tell me about your son. . . . Tell me about your daughter,” and then hold pictures of the lost beloved as their parents described favorite foods, television shows, and the sound of their laughter. For the younger siblings of those who had passed away—many of them two, three, or four years old, too young to understand it all—the president would grab them and toss them, laughing, up into the air, and then hand them a box of White House M&M’s, which were always kept close at hand. In each room, I saw his eyes water, but he did not break.

And then the entire scene would repeat—for hours. Over and over and over again, through well over a hundred relatives of the fallen, each one equally broken, wrecked by the loss. After each classroom, we would go back into those fluorescent hallways and walk through the names of the coming families, and then the president would dive back in, like a soldier returning to a tour of duty in a worthy but wearing war. We spent what felt like a lifetime in those classrooms, and every single person received the same tender treatment. The same hugs. The same looks, directly in their eyes. The same sincere offer of support and prayer.”

Tom Petty Appreciation Thread

I was in HS when he first hit the national stage. I remember an article on his first tour in the PHX New Times where the reviewer wrote something like, "he looks like the guy in Jr. High that you wanted to punch but then you got to know him and your couldn't help but liking him." Within a couple of years of this release his record company tried to jack up the price of his next release, something like going from a $12 album to a $15 album. He balked and told them he would give them a pile of shit recordings if they didn't back off. I believe he won the fight. He also admitted that he didn't know shit when he had the confederate flag behind the stage on his first tour when the band played Born a Rebel and realized it was wrong.

Another poster put up a thread earlier regarding his XM channel where he would come in and spin records, not his own, but records he liked and influenced him.

All and all a great artist and a great guy.

I must say I was a bit surprised at the NBC Sunday Night Football reaction to tRumps latest

Al Michaels is a RW dude (main play by play/host) and during one of the preseason games I watched he commented, rather dismissively, that here is the obligatory shot of some players kneeling.

So I actually tuned in tonight to see what he would do, turns out he said very little and then turned it over to Chris Collingsworth (color commentator/co host) who actually played the game. Collingsworth suggested tRump apologize for his SOB comment and actually invite some players to the WH and listen to their experiences.

OK, I have been extremely mean to Lindsey Graham over the years

But he stepped up today, gave a joint conference with Dick Durbin, and called on the orange shitstain to do the right thing regarding DACA.

Now, Twitler won't listen, but Graham at least stood up and took a stand. More than I can say for almost every other Repuke.

Need some understanding from those in/from Houston or a flood prone area

I keep hearing people interviewed who state this is the second or third flood they have gone through, but by far the worst. They then state that flood water made it into their house during the previous floods but never to this level.

Here is my confusion, what is the thought process that makes them think it won't continue to get worse?

Do they get together with the city/community and try to come up with diversion plans/disaster preparedness?

I assume it is extremely hard to get local governments to change but would think that Repubs and Dems would be united in these areas on spending money on prevention.

Those not evacuating - and my experience

MSNBC just interviewed a guy in Corpus Christi who was not leaving, in a garage with family/neighbors, drinking beer. He commented that it won't be as bad as they say it will be.

So I live in a fire area in CA, we have had optional evacuation twice in the last twenty years. I did not leave, other neighbors and friends used my garage as a staging area. Here is the difference, we weren't drinking beer, we were monitoring and assisting. For example, tree caught fire from an ember, fire fighters were fighting fire at entry to canyon, we were able to be thirty yards back and use a hose to knock down the fire.

Previous to the fire hitting close, the firemen walked through, gave advice (keep garage door closed, move chemicals outside in bin, etc) we also helped them move wood lawn furniture and toys from the backyards dropping to the canyon into front yards across the street.

Across the street and at the end of the street the houses backed up to the canyon. The houses are stucco with tile roof so a house across the street would have to catch, roof collapse or open, then my row of houses might catch. We had a plan, jump the wall behind my house, run through a backyard and down a street about 1/4 mile where we had staged ALL cars so none were in a garage. And this was the big diffence, there was no way we would be cut off into an island and require assistance, the worse thing that would happen was skinning our shins jumping the back wall. (One neighbor was unsure he could scale the wall, so we put out a step stool, a few days later we challenged him to try jumping the wall, no problem)

These people in CC are not using any logic, drinking beer and thinking it won't be as bad as those elitist claim is sure way to put others in danger.

Watching MSNBC off and on this morning - Clinton response - What a load of bullshit

So every show is reviewing what happened on election day based upon HRCs book.

I have not seen one of them bring up the biggest factor, THE MEDIA, they all ignore what they did the entire campaign, focus on Clinton's negative stories while promoting tRump.

Now I did learn one thing, tRump, on election day, won Michigan by 11, (excludes dumping of ballots) Florida and PA by 17, and Wisconsin by 29. I call bullshit! On both the MSN and the election day spreads.

Happy to see some Republicans start to break from tRump - For example

Yup, one more time, Republicans aren't going to do jack shit to fix the mess they created.

Phx protesters - tRump needs a win - don't give it to him

Be extremely careful out there today. tRump is wounded and has been made to look like an ass numerous times over the last week. He needs a win and a clear win would be for him to point at some counter protest as being out of hand. Hell he tried to do that in Boston on Saturday but it was so ridiculous that it was ignored. (And it shouldn't have been, media helping him again)

Am I suggesting that he would stage some type of Reichtag event? Hell yes, I guarantee you they will have agent provocateurs in the crowd. So be very careful, look for clues and signs and shut them down quickly and peacefully.
