That moment when the boy wonder says “with all due respect,” and the Republican Hillary replies, “With all due respect do not interrupt me.”

Your shot at Secretary Handel’s physical appearance is completely unwarranted and demeaning. You can criticize someone without commenting on physical appearance.

And yes, that’s a rule I sometimes struggle to follow when it comes to President Trump’s sad, misshapen body.

I’ll jump on this train. I swear to God, Algore looked exactly like Rodney Dangerfield the other day when discussing Trump’s exit from the Paris Hoax. Fat and really, really sad.

You actually clicked on his click bait? You know that’s how you catch things.

Just like going home with a questionable person at last call in the bar, clicking on Chamblee’s links are a roll of the dice. You’ll probably be fine, but there’s a chance of getting something that will need penicillin or an IT guy to fix.

Never thought about getting viruses from our fellow posters. Should we cite our news sources in our links?

Well, when you post things from patriotredmeatnews.com I’m hesitant to click on it.

Any clickbait ads you get on Chamblee’s site are directed from Almighty Google. So if you get anything dodgy it means “somebody” has been taking your pc for a walk on the wild side… I have the luxury of a little notebook with a SSD that is too small to use for anything but surfing. The beauty of it is that I can reimage it in about 5 minutes. No anti-malware, virus, etc. needed. I even used it to go to some of Harry’s Nazi links. And yes it has been my experience that the more they wave the flag… Read more »

Put me down as enjoying Chamblee54’s photos too, and for feeling safe when visiting his site. Unlike some of the links here that I click on only to fieldtest my firewall, his place is pretty quiet.

I agree, but I suspect Eiger was implying poisoning of the mind rather than the body.

What does that mean to “reimage?” You just have the little netbook to surf with and don’t worry about links with viruses? If so, how do you remove any virus you may get?

A traditional backup of a hard drive is a copy of the files within the file system. An image copy is a snapshot of the hard drive strictly done by nothing but the 1s and 0s regardless of the file system. It is typically how large organizations do cookie cutter installations of the OS and apps to identical pcs. In my case I setup a bootable thumb drive with imaging software and do an snapshot of the surfing pc with just the OS and my browser of choice installed on it. Occasionally I have to update the image, if say,… Read more »

If you didn’t catch PBS last night on Africa’s Great Civilizations you have chances this weekend. It is a series of 3 two hours shows.
Remarkable, enlightening and educational.

Meanwhile up in Dade County, we are up to 60 arrest along I-24 for minor drug possesion so far this week. One lucky feller had 55K on him to donate to the county. We even brought in help from Walker County SD, City of Lafayette PD, and the Lookout Mountain Drug Task Force. The GSP and GOHS are really helping out on I-59. Thank You Bonnaroo. There is no telling how much this is going to cost the taxpayers. They should just make it a $100-500 ticket. At this rate we will need a new jail, more guards, DA’s maybe… Read more »

With all the hoopla about Comey and GA-6 this week, don’t overlook that Trump’s Middle East visit that brought “a message of tolerance and of hope to billions” being followed by our extremist Islamic allies Saudi Arabia et al arraying themselves against Qatar, another ally and the location of a major US military installation. But hey, Trump still has the $30,000,000,000 the Saudi’s invested with the Kushner family’s bankers that occurred soon after his arms deal with the Saudi’s to comfort him, even if an arms deal may have emboldened action against Qatar. No worries, it’s not like Trump has… Read more »

“The US secretary of state has urged Saudi Arabia and other Arab Gulf states to ease their blockade on Qatar, saying it is causing unintended humanitarian consequences and affecting the US-led fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group.” Tillerson…. yet another being pooped on by the Great Trumpkin. Doesn’t the SoS office have a twitter account that follows Trump? “So good to see the Saudi Arabia visit with the King and 50 countries already paying off. They said they would take a hard line on funding extremism, and all reference was pointing to Qatar. Perhaps this… Read more »

Dogs are extra special but it is concerning that the latest deception fad is to get a “service dog vest” and the public should not assume they are trained. Not saying emotional support dogs aren’t good but vests just to take a dog anywhere isn’t. ADA.gov Q3. Are emotional support, therapy, comfort, or companion animals considered service animals under the ADA? A. No. These terms are used to describe animals that provide comfort just by being with a person. Because they have not been trained to perform a specific job or task, they do not qualify as service animals under… Read more »

Anyone know where the “secret” fundraiser is today at which the vice president is expected? you know, as in CD 6?

I’m no economist but I’ve read plenty about The Great Depression, and that article is total BS. Instead of just looking at the facts and interpreting them in an objective way like most economists have, he has a conclusion he wants to arrive at and writes a narrative to get there. Fortunately he’s apparently a nobody so his attempt to re-write history will have zero impact. It’s really sad though.

Not only is it BS, but it almost the opposite that is true. Big Government was all that kept many from starvation. Makes you wonder about the moral compass of someone who peddles this garbage (and who links to it, but hopefully hadn’t read it)

Will Durant

It is about as true as the link earlier in the week was from The Atlantic on RE Lee. An article written by a former MSNBC/Mother Jones writer who was just as slanted without any supporting documentation as this one is on the Great Depression. As always the truth is somewhere in the gray areas in between. Some of FDR’s programs worked, some were marginally legal. The buildup to WWII erased all sins.

I would be interested in any questionable links that you have found at chamblee54. There is definitely nothing I have made money on. As for my effect of my opinions on your mental health, I make no claims.

We missed the whole Kansas tax/budget veto drama this week. After 5 years, the tax cuts and budget gutting by Gov. Brownback’s ‘trickle down tax plan’ (a Kansas house member’s words, not mine) have come to an end.

Yes, by his own terminology “The Great Kansas Experiment” has ended, and as one would predict, the Laffer curve only goes in one direction…down. Thankfully Kansas residents will no longer be the subject of experimentation.

Kris Kobach announced for the 2018 Kansas governor race, saying he’s ashamed of gopers who supported the tax rollback. Kobach is Kansas’ SoS who has a second job as voter suppression expert and Trump advisor. Politically, he’s at least as doctrinaire right-wing as Brownback.

Latest poll has Ossoff up by 7 in AJC/Abt Associates poll of 1000 LV

Noway2016
Noway2016

More fake polls. Pardon me if I don’t buy it. Ain’t been a correct poll done statewide or nationwide in years. They didn’t predict Jason Carter or Michelle Nunn and thet sure as hell missed Trump all the way until 10:30 pm on election night. This 7 point garbage is simply a ham-handed effort at voter suppression.

Speaking of voter supresssion… how did Karen Handel’s fundraiser go? Did Mother allow Mike and Karen to be in the same room together?

Trump saying he’ll testify under oath may be the stupidest thing he’s said as President to date, and that’s quite an accomplishment.

A guy with a history of beginning a second lie mid-sentence of another lie will be in a world of trouble on the stand.

Dave Bearse
Dave Bearse

And if Trump shows heretofore unseen discipline and sticks to a simple Comey lied, who are you going to believe, a former FBI director or a multi-time bankrupt and con man who settled a Trump U suit for $25M?

Dave Bearse
Dave Bearse

Trump’s incoherent answer to a question about testifying under oath may be a taste of what to expect. If Trump’s testimony doesn’t result in impeachment for obstruction or perjury, it may be grounds for removal for incompetence.

“One hundred percent. I didn’t say, under oath, I hardly know the man. I’m not going to say ‘I want you to pledge allegiance.’ Who would do that? Who would ask a man to pledge allegiance under oath. And think of it. I hardly know the man. It doesn’t make sense. No, I didn’t say that and I didn’t say the other.”
