41 This is a really nice piece. Homer's use of basic shapes and neutral colors creates a peaceful, quiet, serene scene. Many times works with these colors have a negative mood, but not here. He flips the trope. The best part, for me, is the tiny point of red on the horizon. Like an actual lighthouse, it is just enough to draw your attention to it in this vast darkness, but not too much where it unbalances the work. Homer even puts a white dot in the middle of the red to reduce its vibrancy even more. Very nice.

Do we need any further proof that the Democratic Party is 100% beholden to it's left wing?

I've always thought that the idea that Democrats could take the House in 2018 was a bit far fetched considering the make up of the House as it is when compared with the ideological leanings of the districts they represent, but the Democratic Party is now convinced outright refusing to do what they did in 2006 which helped give them a majority. They're refusing to appeal to center to center-right Democratic voters in the Rust Belt. They're outright giving up on them.

No. If we knock down their incoming nuclear missiles, they may view it as an aggressive act.

HONG KONG -- The island of Guam made rare headlines this week when North Korea, responding to blustery language from President Trump, threatened to fire four ballistic missiles into waters near the American territory's shores. Some Guam residents told reporters that they worried what might happen if North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un, were actually to follow through.

Scientists in Guam, however, say they have at least one other major threat in mind: climate change.

255 bluebell, after almost 26 years, I have given up asking my family what they want to eat. I make up a menu, and I cook the food. If they don't want it, there is lunch meat in the fridge, and they can make a sandwich. It took me some time to realize this was the least futile method of food preparation, and during that time I begged, cajoled and offered pleasures to my husband, but didn't get any help re menu planning. It turns out that he was happy with anything I made, because apparently his mother was a wretched cook, and I could burn toast and it was a feast for him.

Since I enjoy cooking, and seldom burn toast, this was a win for me. You make what you want to make, bluebell.

Urban areas now live off money laundering. Its for-the-children or only-fair or some other BS so that most get credit or paper from the Federal Reserve System to claim stuff made by others.

Why can't teaching, police, firemen, politician and so-on-and-so-on be part time positions that are done when needed from conscripted labor. Community service from solid citizens instead of convicts.

I wait a bit and it keeps up. He's not just talking loudly, he's YELLING and dropping F bomb.. everything. I think.. I don't need this shit. People are walking by seemingly oblivious. I go around the block a few times, come back.. still there, still yelling. I go in, do my thing, come back fill up car.. yelling going on the entire time. He's telling her to shut the fuck up.

I go inside and tell gal behind the counter and she says.. oh is that still going on? WTF?? So you knew and did nothing? How about a call to the police dumbass? This guy was in a total rage and customers are being subjected to his rant and his rage. Wife finally gets out of the car.. he tears out of parking lot and leaves her there.

See, no, that's not true. For example, if I were to be discussing hey do you think she looks hot with a guy I'm dating, the odds are basically 1,000% that I am asking that question because I think that she looks hot and want affirmation thereof.

Another echoed Damore's criticisms: "I am a moderately conservative Googler, and I am and have been scared to share my beliefs. The loud voice here is the liberal one. Conservative voices are hushed.

Critical advice from a long-married man to any newly married man - Anything and everything you say can, and will, be used against you. Never forgot that.

There is one balancing force, however, which you should use often, much more often than you may feel is necessary: Anything complimentary or flattering that you say will be believed without question, and rewarded. The more over the top you go, the better! The rule here is - you can never do too much. Especially if she says it's too much, it's not too much.

429 406 Bridgestone tire commercial: "We brought in professional archers . . ." I wasn't aware there is much demand for professional archery.


When they paid them scale for the commercial, they became professional.

431 Lovely picture. Very soothing. I need soothing right now.

And on another note, people may make fun of my white board sign-but I don't do one every day. Today I passed a house that had at least 20 printed signs on sticks. I couldn't read them all as we passed but two said "2+2=Whatever Donald Trump wants it to mean" and "American was already great". At least 20 signs?! And people think I'm nuts? ;^)

437 "Really? Only if you're married to a narcissist and even then if they're smart they know when you are totally steamrolling them, and of course narcissists are not big on rewards."

Maybe southern women are different, that's the ones I've spent my life around. When you're married to a proper southern woman, you're married to a narcissist by definition. And even though they know you're steamrolling them, they love it so much that they don't care.

If not, why do the most shameless charmers and flatterers always have a pack of women hanging off their arms? It's a drug they can't resist.

439 "There is absolutely no reason why Obama and HRC are not being investigated and all of their ilk."

Yes, there is a reason - Mueller. Here's the deal: go after Obama or Hillary or their people and Mueller plays ham sandwich on you. Let them skate and he just makes life miserable but doesn't indict anyone. As soon as that SOB Sessions caved they had Trump by the balls. The trick right now is to keep Trump convinced he is better off playing ball than throwing down. Key word is "keep" because even a year from now Trump could get pissed off, fire Sessions, and loose the dogs. So the Dems, or more accurately the former Obama administration still in place, are riding a tiger (Chuck and Nan and even the DNC have no role in this). They have to constantly give Trump enough reason to trust that they won't double-cross him, but keep him afraid of them. Their bigger problem is a twofold ticking time-bomb:
1. The public is already beginning to realize "Russia!" is bullshit, and...
2. The words "Trump" and "afraid" do not go well together.

I will add (to this comment made elsewhere) that the reason Chuck and Nan have no control over this is that while Russia! is baloney, Obama has enough REAL dirtiest on Hillary and the old-line Dems to send them up the river forever! With his media toadies under control, he can nuke them and walk away clean.

446 If not, why do the most shameless charmers and flatterers always have a pack of women hanging off their arms?

If you're speaking of narcissists, it's because they ARE charming. They have a great skill in acting as if they are completely captivated by what you say and you are the most important person in the world. That's because they need narcissistic supply themselves. If you cease giving it they disappear to look for the next supply or if you imply they're not perfect they react in rage or just cut you off.
However, I've known Southern women although I've never beeb married to one. I went to a school with them and granted I wasn't a man, but i found Southern women to be much the same as Northern women in this respect-Some of very nice and some are narcisists

Everybody enjoys a little flattery and some people are good at giving genuine compliments.

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at August 11, 2017 11:36 AM (iVOAv)

447 Oh, yes, if you need something or are needy-sick or need help narcissists disappear.

And just to note, I am not married to a narcissist. If i had been it would have been like then old Lady Astor and Churchill, "Winston, If i were married to you, "I put put arsenic in your tea." And Madame if i were married to you, I would drink it."

452 In my lifetime, I never remember any political party choosing to tell a group of people they don't want them.

And the Dems don't pick out the KKK, or anti-Semites, or other hateful groups...they zero in on Pro-Lifers. It is beyond bizarre to me.

As for Islam, Keith Ellison of the DNC has quite a few activities in his background tied to Islam. Just saying...

Eh, no. I've always seen right through that act, even when I was in my 20s. The more florid the compliments, the more deep the bullshit. Put on the hip waders.

A nice simple sincere compliment is different. My husband and I rarely compliment each other, but I've never doubted his love and loyalty. Like the Joe Ely song, do you want romance, or would you settle for love?
