      Yeah, half right. There was an article on American Thinker yesterday, talked about the legal premise of “Standing” at state level. Only two AGs have standing, one in NY and the other in Arkansas. Interesting…….

      Yeah, she’s the personification of modern political greed, She’s the embodiment of the old adage: ‘Life’s like a sh*t sandwich, the more bread you’ve got the less sh*t you’ve gotta eat’. Too bad she didn’t realize the sandwich comes with a side of hubris.

    Happy weekend, happy Saturday, family!

    I had an interesting idea tonight. Is there any laws or bylaws that would prevent both the Republican and Democrat parties from nominating the same individual for President? With the Dem’s power structure collapsing, they are going to have to find new blood to revitalize the party, and find some new rising stars. Everyone is too old. Could Trump find a way to get himself nominated from both parties, and just pee in everyone’s Wheaties?

      Not an expert, at the local, state level you can cross file your petition for the elected office you seek. The only individual who did this was John Murtha (D) Johnstown, Pa. if I remember correctly, happened in the mid 80s. Everyone thought very highly of Big John, before he went over the side with that incident in Iraq involving Marines.

Burr was a traitor, conspires with a foreign power to annex territorial lands. Both were veterans, both involved in the 1803 election between Adams/Jefferson….. .

      BTW, my cousin, whom is same age as myself, and whom we have always stood firmly side by side through the years through all of life’s upheavels and family turmoil, has ‘unfriended” me based on my political viewpoint.

      She has been living in SF the past 30 years, and pre-election, commented I was only second person she had heard voting for Trump. That’s when she still talked to me since he would NEVER be elected.
      Now sadly, she is as most all of the left, “Can’t even talk about it”. No discussion of issues at all.
      I am going to miss her.

              Now, anger, riots and name calling. It reveals to me how divide this nation truly is, when family who LOVE each other dearly, are so readily able to totally rebuke one another.
              I posted some concern here last weekend on upcoming Dec. 19th. And from what is continuing these past few days, I can envision a major upheaval if not outright war soon.

        Someone I have been friends with for years was texting with me. I know she hates Trump so we don’t talk politics. Then out of the blue she said “Trump is evil.” I sent her the “In a world of Kardashians be an Ivanka.” I think our friendship is over.

        It is sad but life is too short to give up my freedom of expression and rational conversation to constantly appease the Stepford Americans. I am done with appeasement and silence it has already cost me some friends, it may cost me some family members. It is to me very sad.

        I choose freedom over tyranny of the Left and death at the hands of Islam.

        There are those who think that is an extreme statement for many there is no hope of arguing them out of the chicanery of their own minds. Our society has made a dangerous delusional belief system into reality by consensus . Anomalous delusion is no longer, except for the truly visibly psychotic, (people who fancy themselves carrots and the like) as delusional thinking has gone main street America.

        There is going to be a lot of soul searching, heartache and come to Jesus moments in the following weeks. We didn’t choose it, but we are called to respond.

            No offense taken 😊. There used to be a time when anomalous reality (different then consensus reality) was a reason for concern. If it was dangerous or debilitating the person was considered psychotic, if it was just simply different thinking it was considered charmingly eccentric. Now it seems we have a consensus of delusional thinking among at least 40 % of Americans.

            Ever try and talk to a delusional person? (Names changed)

            Her “Son of a botch! I just tripped over an arm!”

            Me “Is Ted* with you?” (Ted is her 18 month old son.)

            Her “He is with Darren”

            Me “Can I talk to Darren”

            Her “F* you” “He killed my brother, but you know that don’t you.”

            Me “Lets figure this out”

            Her “Figure this out!!!!”

            Me “First thing you need to do is get Ted out of there right? You know Darren won’t hurt him.” (Meanwhile calling 911 on another phone because Darren is an idiot though not delusional)

            Her “There are so many body parts! Who do these belong to?”

            Me “I don’t knowI’m not there. Get Ted out before he sees them’

            Her “Get out ! Get the F* out out!”

            Me “Ok so do you want some chalk for your art ? I have some really pretty ones.”

            Her “Are they pastels?” “Son of a beotch there are like body parts all over the whole bed room.” “Do you have any paper?”

            That is a much shortened version. (Short hand ending her son is now 6 relatively well adjusted and living in another state with his grandfather) She was in a lockdown ward the last time I talked to her and still blaming me for stealing her son.

            The never Trumpers are no different but less deserving of our compassion.

              I do see what you mean, and no I haven’t talked to a seriously deluded person, or a dangerous one at least.
              I’m beginning to believe we are all delusional in varying degrees. I know I am. And right now, with all of that which is flying hither and yon, I’m having a harder time discerning REAL reality. And this morning actually (weird, but that seems to be my favorite word this morning) was questioning if I am the one who’s deluded.
              The PTB are definitely doing a good job of obfuscation. I could use a little Eph. 6 right about now.

                Don’t let them fool you. You are not deluded. This is exactly what they want you to think. That is the problem with 50% of Americans pushing a delusional reality with the MSM, hollywood and politicians pushing that same false reality. You have to take refuge in the truth. They can believe whatever they want to believe, consensus does not a reality make.

                The world is just as round today as it was yesterday and as it was a thousand years ago.

    On another topic,
    My ol’ high school sweetheart who lives up Nyet’s way in Vancouver WA, is attending a huge AirBnB convention in LA this week. Has people and speakers there to divulge ways and strategy for that business, and other avenues on being an entrepreneur.
    Sent me a pic last night of two such speakers on stage, one of which is none other than ERIC HOLDER!!!.
    Don’t know if she did on purpose to trigger me, she could not vote for either “major” candidate and went off grid with her vote.
    Well, trigger she did, and my comment to her was along the lines of, “Be nice if the guy on stage you all are fawning over, would actually release the secrets to a truly lucrative business, such as gun running, heroin trade, and destruction of a nation while inciting riots, that’d be grand.”

    Another who will probably never speak to me again. Her, not going to miss so much.

    I keep seeing that scene of Trump and Melania walking in the White House with members of Congress. I just noticed that they were walking along and he got a little ahead of Melania, but he was aware of it and turned and motioned for her to catch up, then I noticed his left hand reaching back a little, like searching for her hand until he found it. It was a very touching moment, I thought. (Probably because my ex didn’t seem to realize I had hands.)

    Okay. NoScript:Allow all this page. Same message after reload.
    NoScript:(after more scripts-from-scripts are unveiled) Allow all this page. Same message.
    Repeat four more times until there are no more scripts blocked.

            Wow this browser is fast. Amazingly fast.

            In the settings you can turn the “shields” off for individual sites. That’s the only way Twitter-embedded videos can play here, but I trust this site.

            It’s quite a minimal interface. The settings menu is hidden in little three-vertical-dot icon at the top of the right-hand scrollbar, and if you want to mouse down to access your Windows taskbar, you have to resize your window by minimizing it (the — button next to the maximize button which is next to the X button at top right) and resizing it from the top and side border.

            I’m liking it better than any other browser in the last 10 years, so far. I’ve only fiddled with the settings for 20 minutes, now.
