20 Good morning all.

From this date in 1944- near Naples, Italy

Feb 2, 1944 - The EZ Dog Journal
Slept late. Could have gone to Capri but couldn't see the use in wasting a day like that. Spent the morning shopping and the afternoon cruising around in the General's car. The coast drive around the point at Sorrento is certainly beautiful.
Had a native dance, original from Sorrento, as a floor show at dinner. Quaint old country costumes. Dance is called "Tarantilla" or something like that.



Nice little break from the war.

72 I think last night proved once and for all that the RNC has to take action regarding our primary system. The stunning lack of judgement the state of Iowa has demonstrated cannot possibly be ignored by the party.

The four formost contenders all have little to no experience in government. The Iowa caucus has devolved into a politicized celebrity coronation without any thought for the good of the country.

At this point Im very skeptical that this election can still be salvaged for the party, but Reince Priebus MUST take first steps to ensure that the party doesnt devolve into another circus in 2020!

Yeah Iowa is a FUBAR primary/caucus and it is rediculous that is goes first, HOWEVER, what will happen ( and it already is starting with Huckster dropping out ) is that many of the RINO candidates will begin to fold- Jeb/Christie/Kasich and "All" that support will probably go to Rubio. He will be dangerous. In my 'opinion" it will come down to either Cruz or Trump vs Rubio for the Nomination.

Too bad it wasn't an overwhelming repudiation. I think it demonstrates how hard it will be to overcome the MSM and the Uniparty. But it does demonstrate they can be overcome.

CNN Focus Group Had 'Very Strong Reaction' to One Ted Cruz Victory Speech Remark -- and It Wasn't a Good One

A CNN focus group in New Hampshire did not respond well to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's invocation of scripture in his Iowa caucus victory speech Monday night.

The cable-news network reported the group had a "very strong reaction" when Cruz quoted Psalm 30:5, saying, "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

"As a whole the group started to get neutral, it started to dip -- the line started to dip there because they didn't really like what he was saying," the reporter said.

I was rather surprised that he sounded so humble (for him, anyways). What struck me was his lack of bloviating that he was going to win. Seems like he knew and was ready to accept reality.

That's something that modern candidates don't seem to do much of. It rather endeared him to me just a little.

If there were only six, then the odds are indeed 1/64.

200 I like Trump's style of campaigning. It is quite refreshing.

He is a sober thinker and a successful doer. You have to peak behind the showman mask to see it.

Cruz, on the other hand, is a showman of a different type.
He is slick and well-rehersed. He also wears a mask, but it has a snug fit.

He has my support, but he also sets off my spider-sense.

I was rather surprised that he sounded so humble (for him, anyways). What struck me was his lack of bloviating that he was going to win. Seems like he knew and was ready to accept reality.

I'm encouraged to hear that. Mind you, it's still early in the morning, so who knows what Teh Donald will tweet or say later on, but I hope coming in second will cause him to throttle back on his attacks on Cruz. Both of them should be turning their fire on Scankles and Old Man Who Yells At Clouds.

Simply put, the MF left has marginalized Christianity to the point that public displays of it are now gauche or uncool. I think that is shameful and they ought to be whipped from the public square with lengths of sheep entrails but Ted, dammit, don't hand your enemies a club to beat you with! A great reawakening could be brought about in this country in favor of Christ, but you have to bring people along slowly at first. This will end up being a major turn off. Not smart.

If the dog-eating crackhead had vomited that out, the focus group would be cheering it as a second Sermon on the Mount, because they know that - just like themselves - Obama doesn't really believe all that "God" crap.Ted Cruz, however, does believe that crap. And no one likes to see their true selves in a mirror. Cruz quoting Holy Scripture is a mirror up to their godless selves and they cannot abide it.

229 I'm sure it's already been stated, but the big question out of Iowa is this: will Trump learn and get a ground-game in place (which I'm relatively certain he can do quickly) in time to do well in New Hampshire and then to start regaining ground in SC?

Trump placed a close, and yet not-so-close, second place in Iowa. He doesn't need to place first in either Iowa or New Hampshire (I *think*), but if he keeps losing ground to Cruz, then it may well become a self-feeding cycle.

I don't even care about Rubio's 3rd place win. Unless he jumps past Trump AND Cruz in New Hampshire, it basically won't matter; I can't see SC going for Rubio, and then you start moving into states where Rubio's amnesty stance is really going to hurt him.

Agreed, heartily.

I've always like Cruz and I think he'd do great things to reverse the Prog/Com's policies and help to get us back on track to prosperity and freedom once again. Having said that, I feel like Trump would have more impact on society and would be better able to win the general against either of the communistas.

Hopefully, Trump and Cruz have plans to include the other in their administrations. And I hope they can collaborate, as you said, and turn their guns on the real domestic enemies, the Leftards.

286 Fox kept saying "Cruz won more votes than any candidate ever has won before in an Iowa caucus".

Does that statement include Obumbles?

287 "
Don't toy with us...this is serious stuff.

No shit?"

OK...OK.


After the second "No Shit?", I went to the website to look at the menu.

Hot Dogs are not listed.

But trust me, they have them here, and they are damn good.
So maybe it's a trial period.
And if it goes national, I recommend them.

292 The genetic tinkering with embryos is sobering because not only do they use viable embryos donated by couple undergoing IVF, after two weeks of tinkering they are legally obligated to destroy the embryo. They cite wanting to find genetic cures for MS and other diseases but bottom line, they are destroying what could be viable embryos. I find it very sad honestly.

294 big, yelly discussion about candidates here at work, which is exceedingly rare.

Dems: All politicians lie! At which point we're yelling Hillz isn't merely a liar.... which was readily conceded.

GOPe guy: Sanders can't win! He's a socialist! Trump is insane! etc. The only important criteria is electability!

Me: TRUMP!!!1! with a side of: Electability is not at all the major concern this time around. Nor ideology. If the GOPe knows whats good for it, stay out of the process or Bernie it is.

308 Don't many carry permits specifically exclude bars?

Not mine.

Here's how it works. You can carry openly or concealed, your choice (up until relatively recently you couldn't carry concealed but you could still carry openly....). You may not be "impaired" while carrying either way (impaired generally recognized as the BAC standard for driving), and for concealed there is a prohibition against drinking while in an establishment.

When the concealed ban was lifted in VA, the usual suspects were all up in arms about people going into restaurants while carrying and getting drunk then shooting the place up. Well, it's been several years now and not a single incident.

So fuck this stupid "mothers" group.

310 "but you have to bring people along slowly at first"


If quoting a phrase from a Psalm, which is in the OLD Testament, by the way, is too Christian for our culture to endure, then we are doomed. Although, that phrase also occurs in Christian contemporary music ("Your Love Never Fails"), which I would suspect was the origin of the quotation, not study of the OT.

Salient observation ma'am.



On the other hand, if the GOPe really is in a panic as some folks
claim, Donutman, Luap nor the Lesser and !Jeb will drop out to bolster
Rubio in the primaries in those states .

Pretty sure Luap's voters go to Trump or Cruz.

317 My heavens! That Moms Demand ad was stupid from start to finish, but especially finish.

OTOH, good. Wouldn't want to be in a restaurant with such a bizarre group of bad actors, anyway.

At the place we sometimes breakfast, there's often a fellow at the counter with a holstered pistol on his hip. I always think, in case of problems, I'm glad he's there! Unfortunate, though, that if you're sitting at the counter, you've got your back to the door...

What I mean (and perhaps phrased poorly) is that public culture, dominated by the Godless communists as it is, mocks public displays of Christianity ruthlessly. The weak kneed -minded? un-political LIV types live in mortal fear of public shaming. Given that innocent people have lost entire careers due to one wrong word on social media that fear iswell founded. We will see an attempt to smear Cruz supporters as religious bigots onSM, and their SJW cadre will pick out people and make examples of them.
Those people play forkeeps, and your life isn't worth a splinter to them.
