Beautiful photo.

Ann, please link to your most critical post about Trump from the past three months.

Be honest, he's your man.

The Senate quietly passed HR 6393 "Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016"

It's all about covering up #Pizzagate, and blaming the Crooked Old Lady's loss on "those meddling Russians".

So "Con Law Prof", how does this bill comport with Amendment 1:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances".

The State Dept. once this bill is passed, will be the Ministry of Truth, and will attack alternative media with the power of the Federal Government, and determine what is truth. Is this America?

And snow might fall next weekend too. Mother Nature laughing at merchants trying to make a profit during the weekends before Christmas.

Ow, t...

Be honest, he's everybody's man now. Keep this up, you are losing the better millennials who can't believe the act you guys are putting on. Last night I dined in Brighton Beach with a 21yo programmer from my office and we compared your tantrums unfavorably to the meltdown scenes in the Terminator movies.

Just keep whining, and bitching, and moaning. If we could bottle your tears, we could solve the trade deficit.

"Go back to bed."

I got 8 hours of sleep.

OWT, One thing I tell my lefty friends, it's going to be a long eight years for you. Get used to it.

Longer, of course, if Trump uses Obama's pen and phone to disregard presidential term limits (heh).

it's going to be a long 4/8 years for the ideologue bloggers here to defend the coming storm and the dissolution of our democratic republic by twisting the meaning of conservativism and morphing the constitution and traditions of this country...i just pray that the bloggers don't have sons and daughters that would get caught up in the military conflicts that are lining up. I guess it does not bother most here that the trump cabinet is wholly formed of financial/military people... they are laughing at you all the way to the bank... a populist uprising indeed !

Last night I dreamed that perhaps watches and clocks weren't necessary, and dreamed reasons they were...train leaves at 6, my parents will be home at 8, etc.

Then my cat woke me up, like he always does if I'm still asleep, at 6:30AM.

"Ann, I'd like to try to fumigate this here chair, it's a good quality item. If you don't mind my askin', how much did she set you back?"

- Cousin Eddie,

EDH said...

Did you leave the Christmas lights on all night or just turn them on for the photo?

Looks as though they may slowly melt their way out of the snow.

Meade said...

All night.

LED lights. I don't think there is enough thermal transfer to melt the snow but I'll watch and report back to you.

EDH said...

Meade,

I also leave LEDs on all night on a timer. Usually on red. One under-cabinet bar under every other tread of a spiral staircase to illuminate the steps. Also fills the entire common area as a nightlight, so I don't turn the full lights on as often. Net, probably saves electricity.

Added advantage: from the street it looks like a whore house!
