Reptilian, fanged, long tongued, scaly master right there for all to see.

LBD said...

So they scrapped the plans to put Obummer up there?

Rob Dawg said...

How do we know that isn't him?

Lawyerliz said...

You guys still find Trump acceptable?

Lawyerliz said...

We missed the launch, clouds big fluffy ones. A friend who was over there shepherding vips saw the landing

LBD said...

America 2.0 T is best of the worst, still better the the Clinton Crime family. As you say there is no normal anymore.

Rob Dawg said...

What has happened since Nov 8, 2016 that could possibly be better since under a different Presidency?

Cinco-X said...

Dodging Clinton was such a relief. Compensates for anything he has or hasn't done.

Lawyerliz said...

I personally would have avoided a lot of embarrasment (Oh noez, this is our president???) And sadness and now you can add sheer terror. I was a kid who hid under school benches. I don't want to do that again nor do I want other kids to experience it or me either. I absolutely don't trust him with the nuclear football. He made a flabby speak against the white supremacists, Pence gave a good one. He's been not so bad because all of his proposals were shot down. I suggest again he should go for inflastructure, because a lot of Congress and voters would like a lot of that, especially if is in their state. No foreign contractors, we hire extra people to make sure no illegals.

Lawyerliz said...

There is a no zero chance he may cause the would to blow up. I'd take a lot of obnoxiousNess for Clinton not to have that happen.

Lawyerliz said...

Non zero. DYAC

LBD said...

NK Dough boy knows how to buy the Clinton's off. You would not have to worry if NK nuke program was destroyed during the Clinton administration. Trump is taking care of others presidents failures with little choice. NK started this not T.

Rob Dawg said...

Bill Clinton started this. Too small for GWB to bother and when it got bad enough BHO fumbled.

China fears a unified Korea.

Great Unknown said...

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't believe that Trump really cares about social issues other than from a financial perspective. I believe he finds it hard to get interested otherwise.

Great Unknown said...

On a totally different note, this story made me think of Liz...

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/08/14/pet-owner-saved-drowning-tortoises-life-giving-mouth-to-mouth/

LBD said...

You are are right Business first then social issues. Most social issues are not rally government problems. IMO

Lawyerliz said...

Agreed.

Lawyerliz said...

I like then but not sure I'd do that. Blow through a straw maybe.

Lawyerliz said...

Still?

Lawyerliz said...

I suggested infrastructure to get things rolling.
I'm perfectly ok with reforming taxes as long as the rich don't get tax cuts.

Rob Dawg said...

Strangely I think there are some issues Teump believes arevbest left alone. Not the same ones I believe are best untouched by FedGov but there is some overlap.

Counterwxample being MJ. IMHO if we kinda ignore it and tax it at the state level we will see benefits. Trump is not of that opinion.

Rob Dawg said...

Side note. Wevknowcfrim a long track record how MIC captive HRC and warhawk with deep ties and old scores to settlebwiukd be behaving in these circumstances. That scares me.

Lawyerliz said...

Agree.

Lawyerliz said...

What happened to your spelling?

Lawyerliz said...

Tropical storms revving up.

Rob Dawg said...

Might have to visit your great state if my mom needs help with her ailing boyfriend.

Lawyerliz said...

Me and the hub would welcome you with gladness. And spouse.

Cinco-X said...

Morning Liz...

LBD said...

Good Morning!

Scattered weather, Bike ride or jet ski fishing? Decisions.

LBD said...

So Obummer gave Chrysler to Fiat basically for free and has been trying to set it up to be parted out. Today in the FREEP is an article that the Chinese are the only player with the dollars to do so. Buick is left open to fill more product by China with Opel/Vauxall. :(

Lawyerliz said...

Good morning.😀 every one. Diagnose with neuraphathy below the knee no symptoms except tingling. More tests.

LBD said...

Sorry to hear it. My toes have been numb for two years and my fingers have a bit as well. The good news for me is the burning is under control and I can sleep.

Lawyerliz said...

Diabetes?

Lawyerliz said...

Do you take a med that helps?

LBD said...

Yes, yes and yes. The med that really worked for me Gabapentin. Cymbalta was ineffective and made me sleepy all the time. I won't let it stop me till I can't move. 3mg 4 times a day, last increase did little to improve symptoms. Good luck nothing but good times ahead. :)

LBD said...

I swear I would never wear Crocks but now I love them even though they still look goofy.

Lawyerliz said...

I have never had an opinion on Crocks.

Lawyerliz said...

Before anybody argues about the White supremacist etc, I suggest you read the lyrics to The Night they Drove old Dixie down several times slowly and carefully. It doesn't mention black people but the sorrow of a white guy whose country has just been destroyed.

They never should have take the very best. . .
He was just 18 proud and brave , but a Yankee laid him in his grave. . .
You can't raise up a Caine when he's in defeat.

Lawyerliz said...

These kkkers and thugs are in defeat. What they have, nobody needs or wants, and the jobs they'd want or could do are gone forever. Black people have gained status where they have lost it. These are the people who like trump. These are the people who are exploding with violece. These are the grown up kids who never did their homework. Could they be retrained? You can't allow violence. But I think a lot of then are hopeless, a bad place to be.

LBD said...

Good Morning!

America 2.0 We will never get an honest view of what happened. Media has done almost zero reporting on who came equipped to fight with them. Where the police that ignorant not to see this coming? Nazi's hopeless losers, hate looking for a reason, on both sides. Google brains taught that history can't be tolerated? This whole thing reminds me of Obummers "the police acted stupidly" after he just stated he didn't have the facts yet. NBC news has become a evening hate lecture and not news since this event. I just get up and leave the room, just repeat pounding of their hateful view. A lot of White Americans are tired of being blamed as the source of all evil for what their forefathers did and today's actions of a few idiots. A few racist does not define a whole group of people. Not a happy tolerant America anymore. Rant off.

Lawyerliz said...

Are we gonna take Franklin s statues down. (He owned a couple of slaves?) Washington? He owned a bunch. Freed at his death, tho Mrs Washington's weren't? Jefferson's? He had his wife's black half sister as his common law wife at 14, when he went to France. She had some kids. At dinner one guest noted one footman looked exactly like Jefferson, so he used his son a quarter back, as his servant. He did free the Hennings at his death, but the rest were sold for debt. Take down the rest of the statues?? Jefferson s sins were the worst in my opinion. Lincoln's main effort was to save the union, not to free slaves, and he said he would free them or not depending on what wold advance that goal. Madison had lots of slaves, but none of them got freed because he too was hopelessly in debt. More statues down. Etc etc. I read the breakup was more to do with taxes and tariffs than slavery.

Lawyerliz said...

Meanwhile black and these whites are both fighting for respect, and unsteady of calculating how best to get it they go after the lw lying fruit, namely fighting each other, altho I don't know who did what due to bad reporting. However, the black protesters did not try to run down a bunch of people in a car.

Lawyerliz said...

It never was a happy tolerant America. I grew up in Baltimore, and when blacks moved in, whites of all ethnic groups moved out.

Lawyerliz said...

In stead of DYAC.

Lawyerliz said...

That torch light parade sent shiver of fear down my back.

Lawyerliz said...

Also, much of my family came here long after slavery ended. All the Cubans, Ditto. I'd bet the majority of the role came here long after slavery ended. Including the Haitians!!

LBD said...

Did I mention A few idiots like the one who ran down and killed a young lady? How many drunks do the same thing every day? Why did the police allowing traffic on these streets? Any event including Nazis is a huge red flag. On your basis all statues and monuments could be considered racist or honoring hate, a tool of propaganda used in war. Blacks are free to grow in a positive direction but many chose to live in the past and treat themselves as slaves to the system of hate and racism. A government system that rewards failure to easily. Why would a black person immigrate to America with the hate and open season on killing them? Simply isn't the case on the scale pounded down America throat daily. HCN is a prime example of where we where and where it went.

Lawyerliz said...

Nk says it's not gonna shoot at Guam.

Lawyerliz said...

I mostly agree. Many black were forced out of Nola and I hear they are doing better.
Drunks usually don't do that stuff on purpose. I mentioned the Other statues because I don't believe Lee's should be knocked down. Lee lost his property when it was turned into Arlington Cemetery.
Trust me on this, anywhere is better than Haiti.
Whites in Appalachia don't move either. Mine didn't until they were chased out when a dam was put in.

The all statues thing was sarcasm. I though everybody on here got sarcasm

LBD said...

Drunks are a choice to drink and endanger lives with out a specific reason is no difference IMO. People end up dead drunk on liquor of hate.

Remember I have challenges with the English language, so sophisticated humor is difficult as well. That is what I have always like playing over my head, interest me and hopefully makes me a better person.

T gave Doughboy no where to go and do all his generals have the balls to die for an idiots reasoning? T is spot on again even if you don't like his unusual style. Not sure I do but it worked.

Lawyerliz said...

Your English looks good enough to me.

Rob Dawg said...

No police performing traffic control is a definite aspect of the tragedy to investigate.

Lawyerliz said...

I don't think craziness is a style, but as you say, it worked.

Lawyerliz said...

The LBD and Liz show, with some dawg as a teaser.

Cinco-X said...

He wants it to be more gooder

Cinco-X said...

Some of us have to work... Speaking of which, while I was at the doctor's this morning, they we're testing the emergency alert system, and accidentally sent a message:
"S: Active Shooter ALERT - parking LOT
Security Alert - Active Shooter - PARKING LOT - RUN (leave the building/area), HIDE (if you can't leave), FIGHT (as a last resort only)"
They retracted it, but not before everyone had locked themselves into offices and conference rooms. There aren't that many that have solid lockable does, so it was pretty uncomfortable. I lucked out being in Boston...

Lawyerliz said...

Trump or no Trump I feel like hiding under the bed and staying there.

LBD said...

Some of us work at not having a job. :) Did my first aluminum TIG weld today with my old welder. I was very happy beings I haven't done this in over 2 decades.

I bet some one got an A-- chewing for that screw up.

I'm Crazy and it is a very useful style. I come by it naturally. :)

Lawyerliz said...

You are not a narcissist. And you are nice.

Rob Dawg said...

Craziness is a cover story just like me pretending to be almost rich. I can tell you at the atomic level what is happening and what results structurally from welding various metals but I cannot weld worth a darn myself. "Worth a darn" is an apt analogy. Kind of like a surgeon who cannot carve a turkey.

New post soon on the Acushnet v Costco first world problem lawsuit.

Lawyerliz said...

My hub the almost rocket scientist, can't carve a turkey or anthing else. I couldn't bear to watch, so I do it, reluctantly and badly. But if there's a man around who can carve I hand him the knife. Ah, so you are very rich??

Lawyerliz said...

He can weld. I tried it and was ok. He had a soldering iron with a gold tip that I teased him about for years.

Lawyerliz said...

I thought you were pretending to be poor???

Lawyerliz said...

Welding isn't that hard.

LBD said...

Welding is simple if you mig weld mild steel. TIG takes a lot more skill operating a pedel for the correct heat produced at the torch and feeding the welding rod in to the pool is not so easy. Lots of practice and knowledge of setting up the welder for different types of metal takes time to learn. I'm no pro but an excellent hack. :)

Cinco-X said...

Are you talking about The or MIG? I didn't think there was a metal rod in TIG...

Lawyerliz said...

Oh, I was just talking about a soldiering iron. Not some big machine. Never mind.

Lawyerliz said...

Tomorrow leaving for eclipse.

Lawyerliz said...

Since Trump has made everyone else mad, is there a way for him to make the Nazis mad at him?

Lawyerliz said...

How can I stand another 3 years of trump? Hold my breath until I pass out. Repeatedly?

Cinco-X said...

Auto-neuroticism?

LBD said...

Good Morning!

3 years we had to put up with O for 8. You will make it. T hasn't made everyone mad I'm not.

Mig is spool wire welding and TIG is wire rod hand fed, kind of like gas welding with an electric torch. My welder is an old beast 850# just for the welder not including the torch cooler, pedal and argon tank cart.

Lawyerliz said...

Good morning.😀 everybody. As my son says, focus on the 2018 miss terms.
People are boycotting Campbell's soup.

Lawyerliz said...

Mid terms. DYAC

Great Unknown said...

Turn off the national and local news. You'll be much happier.

LBD said...

Where is the fun in that?

Are they boycotting Chinese products as well?

Rubygoat said...

Mooch has been replaced by a 28 yr old former model with a couple of years experience at a PR firm. Considering the next war will be started over twitter, it's probably a really good hire for communications director.

Lawyerliz said...

I did for a while, but I can't resist reading blogs

Lawyerliz said...

Does she have a string hanging down her back. When pulled,.it says fake news over and over again.

Lawyerliz said...

I hope so. I did for a while, but I couldn't do it.

LBD said...

News has been fake for ever. Maybe the polite way of saying it is "Enhanced" for your taste.

Lawyerliz said...

I know. When I observed something recorded afterward, ir was always wrong. None of it was ever about me.

Cinco-X said...

Ya...I can't any of that crap anymore. I have trouble s sleeping after I watch it.

Cinco-X said...

No... It says Russia, Russian, Russia!!!!

Great Unknown said...

I do better reading internet blogs and Drudge. I'm able to keep up without all the "over the top" distortion and (not even) half-truths coming out of the network news. Network news is what the top 1% wants you to believe.

Great Unknown said...

Correction. Actually more like what the 0.001% wants you to believe.

Great Unknown said...

I used to follow Twitter, but there's too much hate there flowing from the indoctrinated, true believers on each side.

Now I just hangout with the DAWG.

LBD said...

Crazy in Spain today, What statues will they aim their hatred at and tear down?

Lawyerliz said...

Well they get snowstorms, sports scores, pandas and hurricanes right. Otherwise I find the slant given stuff.very interesting. Sometimes they are just very careless, as when describing some foreclosure detail, during the great recession. Totally wrong,.no reason for it and I know foreclosures. Too cheap to hire a foreclosure atty, I guess, and.yes, I know the different of a lien theory state, Kali, from a title theory state, Floridah.

Lawyerliz said...

Nah, .01. Hehehehehehe

Lawyerliz said...

I never signed up.

Lawyerliz said...

Spain? You mean that country in Europe??

Cinco-X said...

Smaht

Cinco-X said...

Crap... Going there in about 9 days...

Lawyerliz said...

Bull statues?

How bout the bull in front of the stock exchange? After all, people lose money there?

Rob Dawg said...

I never imagined back in 2005 that Exurban Nation would become a safe space. ;)

Lawyerliz said...

Iconoclasts. It breaks out from time to time.

You know Gothic cathedrals have demons and gargoyles on them. Demons are worse than whiten supremisists. Tear them down? Is our nuttyNess spreading??

Lawyerliz said...

And those Buddhist statues on the mountain wall. Very offensive to moslems. Was it ok to explode them??

Lawyerliz said...

You know there were flagelents
( spelling.) Who went around whipping their backs for their sins. Can we persuade the NAZIs to do that?

Great Unknown said...

If everyone in DC would just fixate on doing something about all these robo calls I'm suddenly getting. That would be useful! "Hi, this is Heather..."

LBD said...

Is this another Trojan horse coming out of the dark? Maybe it is to late to stop them.

Great Unknown said...

Twice a day, every day. One in the morning and one in the afternoon. Different (probably) spoofed number every time.

I was living peacefully until about 45 days ago.

Great Unknown said...

I finally broke down and paid for Nomorobo. We'll see how it works

Cinco-X said...

This is an important public service announcement...

Cinco-X said...

I use Truecaller...

Lawyerliz said...

Agreed, squared.

Lawyerliz said...

Let us know. How much?

Great Unknown said...

Nomorobo is free for a landline, but 1.99/month for a cell line.

Rob Dawg said...

Another PSA:

When they ask; "Hello is this Rob_Dawg?" The correct answer is "Speaking." Do not no matter how natural in the flow say "Yes" to anything. These things run a gamut but if you know it is a cold call or pool call you should say "we have no relationship."

Rubygoat said...

PSA #2, if you don't know the number, answer and push zero to make the robo caller think you are another machine. Many are programmed to remove you from the database if it thinks it has called another machine. I cut my robocalls by about 40% after doing that. If you just hang up then the robocaller will log it as no connection and try to call you again later.

Lawyerliz said...

Gee thanks.

Lawyerliz said...

Trump is being told by a Republican, he needs to be stable. Ha. If only he could.

LBD said...

Republicans got told to shake it up, that's why they got T. Dems totally lost their grip and are running scared, causing as much trouble as a two year old.

Lawyerliz said...

Someone tried to sell Rick on Pawnstars the white van in the low speed O J car chase. The real one. No deal. Too much $$$.

Lawyerliz said...

We shall agree to disagree.

Cinco-X said...

No we won't

Can I get your couple of sense on this one? We all want Dawgfornia!

http://www.sacbee.com/news/politics-government/capitol-alert/article167823307.html

Lawyerliz said...

Jim!!!!

Lawyerliz said...

Good Morning.😀 all. Waiting for launch of communication satilite for NASA. Then off to drive off to see the eclipse. Answer to statue problem. Erect a statue celebrating black people nearby every confederate one. And at least as big. Including stone mountain.

Lawyerliz said...

Trump's troubles is driving inters rates on housing lower. They are below 4% now.Get down to say, 3 1/2 or 3 1/4th and you will see refis again.

Lawyerliz said...

Launch successful. Rumbling pleasant.

Lawyerliz said...

Will create more employment.

How about some chained slaves around the Lee statue? That would make a point!

Lawyerliz said...

The white house was partly built with slaves. Why not knock it down? After all, Trump called it a dump

LBD said...

Good Morning!

Kali has not made any sense for many decades. They didn't pan the crowd and five people presenting the cause looks like not many people really care about the cause.

Refi that over priced ATM and buy some depreciating toys! That's America 2.0!

LBD said...

If they only put their energy in to work and improve the country and themselves. Nah, hard work sucks and Al Sharpden needs another Rolex so turn up the racist for profit movement. Destroy the advancements accomplish by those who worked hard to improve them. Bring back the draft if they want to fight enlist them. Boot camp will help them with discipline and direct their wasted energy.

Cinco-X said...

Good morning to most of the country...

Lawyerliz said...

Bannon's out!! who is left???.

Rob Dawg said...

McCoy: Alright, it's worked so far, but we're not out yet.

Captain Kirk: Well?

Spock: Success, captain. We've been pruning the leaves and branches of the tree, not it is time to get to work on the root.

LBD said...

Kelly cleaning house? I'm sure there is plenty to try out.

Lawyerliz said...

Where is Melania?

LBD said...

I don't think Melania see's herself as a politician like a couple of recent first ladies with an agenda. Kudos to her.

Lawyerliz said...

Yea, but where is she.

LBD said...

Are you starting a conspiracy? ;)

Lawyerliz said...

Sure, fun. She didn't go on vacation with him.

Lawyerliz said...

Trump is the root???

Lawyerliz said...

Ok, what will Trump do tomorrow?

Lawyerliz said...

Looks like we are going to go through a shut the govt down thing. I hate it when they do that

LBD said...

Another unscheduled government paid vacation. :(

Great Unknown said...

It doesn't always work that way.

I was a Fed. During the periodic shutdowns I was mission essential so I had to work regardless, but during the sequester I got furloughed regardless of that status. No pay. Wasn't even allowed to use my accrued vacation time to offset it.

Sequestration was really quite the disaster for the taxpayer too. All sorts of hidden costs from that.

Great Unknown said...

We weren't even allowed to voluntarily work at no pay on the furlough days (even from home). When the government bean counters and lawyers are unleashed, things get really crazy.

Lawyerliz said...

Maher called Trump and Kushner traitors. Wow
Not a word to throw around.
But imo, true. Unless he is so crazy, he can't make a moral decision like that.

Lawyerliz said...

Hub was a Fed. Non essential. Wasnt allowed to work, for a week or 2. No fun, because he was worried the whole time. Did get paid
. Wonder why you didn't.

Lawyerliz said...

What drove people crazy the last time the govt shut down was to not be able to get into the national parks.

Great Unknown said...

i think the difference is you typically get paid back for a temp shutdown (if u were not working during that time), but not for a sequestration furlough.

Great Unknown said...

I suppose it could have been a difference in agencies and how the furlough was implemented. Ours was one day every two weeks over the summer rather than a longer, one time furlough.

LBD said...

Good Morning!

I remember the news saying that government workers got back pay for the shut down. Madding to say the least if some where paid and others where not. Union influence maybe?

Maher would not have an audience if he didn't say stupid stuff.

New seat and modified handle bars, now I have a mountain cruiser! Ride today.

Lawyerliz said...

No unions at NASA.

Lawyerliz said...

At least for rockets scientists. Which he wasn't. Atmospheric physicist.

Lawyerliz said...

In south Carolina eclipseward.

Cinco-X said...

As long as we're throwing a accusations, Maher and his fellow travelers are probably guilty of treason...

Cinco-X said...

That's the imbedded bureaucracy punishing the public, basically blackmailing them into demanding that Congress fund those Union salaries

LBD said...

Not seeing the flood of out of sate people for the eclipse. They usually over promise and under deliver on their hype around here. Monday will tell if many people will come here to view it. We will with lawn chairs, umbrellas, Go Pros with colored lenses, Drink in hand and the pool on stand by. Providing we don't have rain and clouds.

LBD said...

No pay for no work would piss off a lot of votes for the party who let the shut down happen.

Rob Dawg said...


Definition of sedition

: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority

Lawyerliz said...

Yep.

Lawyerliz said...

He's not my president.

Will that do?

Cinco-X said...

Weren't most of them German POWs in the early days?

LBD said...

He is still your President. I had to put up with Obummer as my President like it or not, that's the way the game is played.

Cinco-X said...

But, but, it's not fair!!!

LBD said...

I have never seen as much hate as there is today. Mostly coming from the left, university's, death threats from politicians, so called political pundits, MSM attention and promotion of sick groups of hate and death. If the KKK and Neo Nazis had it together Obummer never would have made it through his first term.

Lawyerliz said...

I don't think it fair to hate a crazy person. I just want him to go away.I think that will happen sooner rather than later.

LBD said...

Good Morning!

Everybody getting ready for the eclipse? Forecast here is more clouds then sun. :(

Lawyerliz said...

Good morning.😀 I'm up here after much being driven. M
No clouds please!!!

Rob Dawg said...

New post. Totally self-aggrandizing but at least a new post.
