    3. Laughter did not seem very appropriate to me given the text.

    4. I found it a sort of self-congratulatory laughter.... akin to "we did good!"

    5. Sorry, but I thought it childish, and detractive. As a society we have lost even the pretense to dignity. The country has turned into one big sandbox. Discourse has been reduced to the level of mud wresting, even so low as cockfighting.

      Education has become a deadly form of child abuse. The universities have become nothing but recruiting centers and training grounds that foster perversion, degeneracy, belligerence, rebelliusness and disrespect while they work to increase technical proficiency.

    8. Mystere brags to people that he is a "published author". What he's referring to is the Blogger "publish" button. Mystere specializes in the niche genre he calls "fart fanfic".

    1. Well, your words and actions prove quite the opposite. But that's okay cause this is, after all, the USA (America).

      For now anyway. But, that may just change under tRump in the near future.

    2. Mystere, explain to me how liberals are 'intolerant?' You have been attacked on this very site for being of Asian decent and told to leave by rightards. Is that'tolerance?'

      Delete
    3. This One, Mystere faked comments (on his WordPress blog) to make it look like you were using racial slurs to attack him. I assume you never saw them, but there were quite a few "This One" comments on that blog (all fake, I'm guessing). WordPress came down on him for the fake comments (after I reported him) and suspended ALL his WordPress blogs (including a number I wasn't aware of at the time).

      Delete
    4. Dervish, you're still upset about someone supposedly hacking your Gravatar account? You recklessly accuse me of hacking your Gravatar account. I have no idea who hijacked it or if you faked a hijacking by giving any number of your buttboys short term access to your account to fake post something for you. I got notified by Yahoo about someone or a group of individuals hacking a number of Yahoo accounts. And why did I suddenly see my old blog enemy Irl Hudnutt suddenly appear on your hate blogs? Irl Hudnutt hacked my Google account years ago and attacked a friend of a friend of mine (Porky) by getting Google to wipe his account out. You'll get caught screwing around one day when you least expect it at your worst possible moment.

      Delete
    5. Yes, liar, I am "still" upset about your hacking of my Gravatar account. Why wouldn't I be? I don't know Irl Hudnutt. Sounded to me like a name you made up when you first mentioned him. He appears to be real, however. Unlike your imaginary friends Porky, donkey's revenge and rattrapper (your sockpuppets).

      FYI, I have zero "buttboys" or "buttbois" (however you choose to spell it). I also do not wear L'eggs brand pantyhose (unlike you).

    6. Mystere, as a fellow Christian I would advise you to pity poor fools, and please "fret not thyself, because of evildoers." Instead, please "rest in the Lord, wait patiently for Him, and He will give thee thy heart's desires. Commit thy ways unto Him and trust in Him."

      Do your best to do that, and I fervently believe all will be well for you and those you love in the long run.

      "Blessed are they who die in the Lord, for they shall have comfort ,,,"

    7. FrancoThinke and Mystere are evildoers. There will be no comfort for them if they die in the service of Satan. The only hope for you is to repent. Unfortunately I don't see that happening.

    4. Well Franco, at least I did what God asked me to do by setting the record straight. When Lester dies in his sins, he can't excuse himself and try to toss the stench back at me. The stench of his retort is now permanently on him because you and I did our jobs.

    10. Mystere our Holy Bible never fails to give good advice. Try always to remember and take courage this:

  5. Rightards are actually stupid enough to believe they are the only Americans capable of patriotism and displays like this upsets liberals. Questioning the patriotism of those with opposing viewpoints, especially on the 4th of July is why the right are the true fascists in America today.

    2. Fear of fascism (authority) scores right up there with lack of "loyalty" in the Left's lack of moral indicators needed for the preservation of civilized society.

    3. Sounds like Minus is eager for a Trump fascist dictatorship. I'd have guessed that a trumper would reject the fascist label, but Minus embraces it. It's bad NOT to be fascist!

      Delete
    4. Eager, no. But if the Left continues through 'Resistance' to demand a open return of the fasces, so be it. Trump will have plenty of lictors willing and able to unbundle the sticks and heft the axe when the time comes.

      ‘At the beginning’ of the law, there is a certain ‘outlaw,’ a certain Real of violence which coincides with the act itself of the establishment of the reign of law: the ultimate truth about the reign of law is that of a usurpation, and all classical politico-philosophical thought rests on the disavowal of this violent act of foundation . . . this illegitimate violence by which law sustains itself must be concealed at any price because this concealment is the positive condition of the functioning of law: it functions insofar as its subjects are deceived, insofar as they experience the authority of law as authentic and eternal.

    6. In actual practice Fascism and Commnism are identical twins. Mediaeval Catholicism would be an dentical triplet if it still exixted today.. There is no appreciable differenceaming these things, because all hate freedom, all are based on a negative view of life, allare inherently tyrannical and none are the least bit hesitant to use deadly force to ensure and protect their power.

    2. I think we should all be embarrassed by racist scum like the Radical Redneck. trumpers are not, of course. They are all racist or at least willing to ignore the racism of the bigot-in-chief.

      Delete
    3. As I said ...... to Rusty ...... leftists have no common sense, and no wisdom. I should add no ability to understand parallels, the meaning of inferences and implications, and no appreciation of figurative language.

      They seem to rely solely on a wholly negative, permanently combative. hostile stance against the world, on mockery, sarcasm, denial, and a dogged, dull, listeralistic interpretation of every word printed or said aloud in public.

      Leftists have little or no understanding of subtlety, little or no appreciation of wit, no apparent abiity to see humor in the human condition. Not only that they seem in.capable of empathy.

      This mantra-like insistence in which most of them indulge that insists sociaism is not an offshoot of basic communist tenets betrays one of three things ...... deceitfulness, disingenuousness or complete idiocy.

      Abundant examples proving this analysis appear right here on this page.

    1. Oh, and I forgot to add that leftists have a weird determination to mislabel and misidentify whatever and whomever they don't like probably for the following reasons in no particular order:

      1. To distract others from the point at hand, and thus derail honest, pertinent conversation.

      2. To spread confusion which has always been their stock-in-trade

      3. To try to make themselves appear more intelligent and more perceptive than they really are

      4. To provoke as much unpleasantness and cynicism as possible thus damaging any chances for amicability

      5. Primarily to ATTRACT ATTENTION to THEMSELVES.

      Though they'd be the last to admit it, leftists don't want anyone to discuss issues and philsophical points of contention soberly and intelligently. Their main aim is to pollute and muddy the waters which, of course, diverts attention away from honest, potentially constructive discourse.

      Again I have to say this blog, because of its extreme permissiveness, is a great venue for letting leftists expose themselves publicly without shame for exactly what they are.

      What that is I must leave to you to explain, because I don't believe in using expletives.

    2. Dropped his "i'm an old man who is almost blind" sthick too. Which I didn't believe. I know someone with age related macular degeneration, and they don't read, use email or the computer any longer. Yet the "almost blind" FT blogs and comments actively.

    3. He is someone's sockpuppet and FT is a good guess. Same BS about the Left being guilty of everything trumpers are guilty of. One thing is certain, and that is that Franco isn't your sockpuppet. The tired bullplop he spews doesn't match the juvenile anus-obsessed idiocy you and your sockpuppets (donkey's revenge and rattrapper) are infamous for. At all.

      With few exceptions Lisa allows these losers to show their asses here. Countless times a day. I think it's overall a good thing but if it were my call, I'd be much less permissive.

      The only place I would differ is I would delete everything This One excretes unceremoniously like every other blog out there does. Xe adds nothing but vile nasty mindless filth. Xe has ZERO redeeming qualities. Not even unintentional humour or even a worthwhile bad example.

    2. Thank you very kindly, RR. I think you must know that it's very hard to swim across a body of water filled with sharp rocks, snags. alligators, piranhas, water mocassins and whirlpools that constantly interrupt your progress and sap your strength as they suck you down beneath the surface, and force you to fight your way back up to where you can breathe again.. It's even harder when the water gets filled more and more with raw sewage, and the dead bodies of friends and allies.

      But one has to keep trying to swim in spite of all that, if one hopes to get to the Other Side.

      And what is that Other Side? Some might call it The Promised Land. Some might think of it as Home. Some mi[ight see it as Victory in a particular battle. Others might think of it as Heaven.

      Whatever it could be, we have no choice but to keep swimming, even if we die in the attempt to reach the Other Side.

      Whether we succeed or not doesn't matter. Our Reward and Redemption come from simply having tried as hard as we could to do our best as long as we remain alive in this world.

  13. I have heard through thle grapevine that Lisa's husband is seriously ill. I am very sorry to learn that, but hope he will recover fully very soon, and get back to living happily and productively. For whatever it may be worth Lisa and her husband are now on my prayer list.

    May the Lord bless you and keep you. May He make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you and give you peace.

    And for the record I wish the same for everyone, even the rudest, most fractious, cynical, and incorrigible among us.

    "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

  22. 1. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.

    2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

    3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

    4 Let them now that fear the Lord say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

    5 I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place.

    6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

    7 The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.

    8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

    9 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.

    10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord will I destroy them.

    11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

    12 They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

    13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the Lord helped me.

    14 The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.

    15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.

    16 The right hand of the Lord is exalted: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.

    17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.

    18 The Lord hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.

    19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord:

    20 This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter.

    21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.

    22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.

    23 This is the Lord's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

    24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

    25 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

    26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.

    27 God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.

    28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.

    29 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

    1. No, I do not think RN is frightened by faith. He is frightened (as am I) by people who believe they are followers of Jesus, but who actually serve Satan. I refer to racists like Klansman Shackelford. These are fake Christians who want to impose their morality on everyone. They have no tolerance or compassion for their fellow man, only hate.

  41. The Democrats need to resit ANY nominee that the Orange Turd puts forth. Remember that some Republicans said (prior to the election) they would seek to deny Hillary Clinton a pick and hold open the vacancy for the entire 4 years of her term?

    Trump should certainly not be allowed to chose another justice while under investigation. Whether or not a sitting predisent can pardon himself (and other questions concerning Trump and his collusion with Russia) may come before the court in the near future. Trump is trying to rig the outcome by picking his own jurors. To this I say NO!!

    A Conservative SCOTUS will get busy rolling back rights for many Americans. Excepting, perhaps, rich White men. The Klansman sees himself as belonging to this privileged group, so he thinks he is safe. Those who lose rights will be all those he hates. Poor people, women, workers, and minorities.

    The oligarchic theocracy that evil pseudo Christians like the Klansman long for is close to becoming a reality. The destruction of America as we know it began with the "election" of Trump. Anyone cheering this is an enemy of America, as Trump is.

      The evidence that this is tRump's and the republican/conservative/evangelical agenda is plain to see. But when you support such power vested in the government you cheer such obscenities.

They wear suits and ties, speak reasonably good English, and make a fairly credible attempt to appear civilized. They still stage riots in the ,streets, but their leaders now strive to appear far above all that while they support it behind the scenes.

      The traitorous barbarians among us now bathe regularly, shave and get haircuts as they appear in today's equivalent of a Brooks Brothers suit. In this regard they are a lot like the pigs who stood upright in Orwell's Animal Farm ... or the wolves in sheep's clothing of biblcal fame.

    For we insist that you stay blind

    Only we proclaim the truth
    less we fear the curious sleuth
    our pious knowledge we proclaim
    enforced by dungeon and the flame

    Recant your words and follow us
    or face the Stake that burnt Jan Hus
    for we despise your faith in science
    our faith in faith is our reliance

    three hundred sixty years have past
    my words in sand now concrete cast
    earth has circled all along
    for I was right and they were wrong

    - for Galileo


    Kid said in response :

    BB, Great example of why I laugh every time some 'scientist' proclaims he has 'the answer' to anything. They've been wrong for thousands of years but still believe they can be finally right.

    I, Franco Aragosta, responded to both:

    Very clever rhyme! It contains much that is true, but it is not the Ultimate Truth.

    Entrenched Power of ANY kind always becomes self-serving and self-protective. Roman Barbarians had the power in the pre-Christian era. "The Church" had the power in the Middle Ages, "Science" has it now.

    The thing we need to fear most is ORTHODOXY of ANY kind.

    The arrogance and self-righteeusness that come with any sort of cocksure attitude is the Achilles Heel of any form of dogmatic or doctriinal cant and rhetoric.

    Life is fluid, evanescent, ever-changing, unpredictable and never competely knowable. Life by its very nature is not stable, so the attempts some have made to trap and solidify it have always been doomed to failure.

    Even so, the Spirit who created and guides all is "unresting, unhasting, and silent as light, nor wanting nor wasting yet out of our sight. We blossom and flourish like leaves on a tree then withereth and fadeth, but naught changeth Thee."

    True faith, which is always questing, is not at odds with Science just as true Science, which is also always questing, is not at odds with faith. Both Science and Faith search for the same thng –– TRUTH –– they only approach it frim different angles.

    That means that t be real neither Faith nor Science can afford to be tendentious in their rhetoric or agenda-driven in their aims.

  64. BRETT KAVANAUGH: OUR NEWEST SUPREME COURT JUSTICE?

    We pray today for the well-being of Judge Brett Kavanaugh who just yesterday was nominated by President Trump to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by Justice Anthony Kennedy.

    We pray that he and his family will withstand with aplomb the incessant barrage of lies, snide, politically-motivated insults, barbed criticisms, vilification, and calumny to which he is sure to be subjected.

    We pray too that his nomination will be approved in the senate, and that he will be seated on the high court before the November election.

    Most of all we pray that Judge Kavanaugh, if he survives the barrage of dirty tricks and Kangaroo Court-like proceedings to which he is sure to be subjected by the pharisiaical, power mad hypocrites determined to badger and beleaguer him, that, unlike too many Republican appointees to the bench in the past, Judge Kavnaugh will prove to be the staunch, highly principled, reliably conservative presence on the court President Trump believes he will be.

    Thailand Cave Rescue: All 12 Boys and Coach Successfully Rescued

    The Guardian (live)

    by Matthew Weaver and Helen Davidson

    Michael Safi The last three navy seals and the medic, who were with the boys for the last few days, are still in the cave. It is unclear when they will emerge, but they are said to be on their way out. The weakest boys were the last to be taken out, sources have said. They are understood to include the youngest in the group – 11-year-old Chanin Wiboonrungrueng. The city of Chiang Rai is starting to party as drivers honk their horns, according to Reuters. “This is an important event in my life. It is something I will remember,” ...

    1. I do not believe for one second (or for much more than 1 second, at least) that you care AT ALL about these boys. They aren't White and they aren't Christian. Why would you, as a self described "decent, God-fearing, natural-born Caucasian-American" care about non-White foreigners?

  68. Why the Orange Turd selected the scotus justice he did...

    Kavanaugh: "...I believe that the President should be excused from some of the burdens of ordinary citizenship while serving in office [because] the indictment and trial of a sitting President... would cripple the federal government, rendering it unable to function...".

    AKA the Orange Turd is above the law. This only applies to Republican presidents, however. The hypocrite was all for impeaching WJC.
