Along with my grandson’s ordeal,my cousin just informed me my 85-year-old uncle had a pacemaker put in Saturday. He’s home now and doing OK. I have one that was put in in March 2013, but I can imagine the older you are the longer the recovery time. All of this family drama notwithstanding,the world does march inexorably on,trifling as it all seems.
The tech guy cleaned up my computer and two days later it was running very badly again. I called him,and since he guarantees his work he went in by remote and cleaned up a lot of problems. It’s nice to work with someone who keeps his word. He said even though the machine wan’t logged on Chrome was showing it was running some 20 programs. That’s why it was so slow.

OK,enough personal crap. Let’s get down to business.

    Half of Obamacare subsidy recipients may owe refunds to the IRS
    87% of people who signed up for Deathcare were getting subsidies.Wonder what happens when none of them pay?
    As many as 3.4 million people who received Obamacare subsidies may owe refunds to the federal government, according to an estimate by a tax preparation firm.

    H&R Block is estimating that as many as half of the 6.8 million people who received insurance premium subsidies under the Affordable Care Act benefited from subsidies that were too large, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday

    And all Obozo does is grin at how he screwed everybody.

    Bill Clinton’s Immunity
    While president, Bill Clinton entered into a sexual relationship with an employee, showing flagrant insensitivity to the “power dynamics” underpinning their affair. He conducted liaisons in the White House which still strike notes of incredulity. When confronted by accusations, he twisted language with artful deliberateness and was able, quite remarkably, to set aside the internal strictures of conscience and personal responsibility.

    These facts are not for debate but are now even more relevant. We should accept that his actions did not rise to the level of an impeachable offense, even taking into consideration his less than honest responses when questioned about them. It proved a miscalculation to have pursued that course as its failure has permitted many to imagine, mistakenly, that he has been absolved.

    Anybody who thinks he’s still not assaulting women are deluding themselves.


    • chrissythehyphenated

      He was disbarred permanently by the Supreme Court and was heavily penalized ($25K as I recall) and disbarred for 5 years by his state bar. So, no, he wasn’t absolved.

    Today #BlackLivesMatter Imploded
    1. Last night, they raided a town hall in Portland, hijacking a medal ceremony for a 100 year old veteran of WWII. Portland is quite liberal and yet this group managed to alienate the audience of people that would normally be receptive to them.
    Ignorant street nigras ain’t got a diploma among the lot of them

    2. They organized #blackbrunch in NYC and Oakland, annoying people as they were trying to have Sunday brunch. They accused the innocent folk they are bothering of being ‘white supremacists’ guilty of ‘genocide’, and even said they have no right to be in this country if they are white.
    I’ll bet this guy just changed his mind on concealed carry.

    3. Finally protesters spammed Twitter during the funeral of Officer Liu claiming that his widow had specifically asked the police not to turn their backs outside his funeral. His wife had said no such thing. But they and their progressive accomplices did what they could to attack the police, supposedly on behalf of Mrs. Liu. How despicable is this, and so many people from various progressive organizations did it, it looked like a coordinated effort.

    Mark my words.these anarcho-commies are going to piss off the wrong people and some of them are going to regret it.You just know its coming.

    Watch this degenerate Ferguson protester tell an old man that he’ll BREAK HIS JAW
    I don’t know.. I was just raised to respect my elders and respect the rule of law, and never threaten people who are older than me because I’m not a degenerate piece of crap. But I guess that’s what it takes to be a maggot social justice warrior these days.
    must be a tough guy.normally it takes 5 or 6 homies to beat up one old white man.

    NY Post: Al Sharpton’s Silence Can Be Bought

    “We support those that support us.”
    He and JJ are professional extortionists.They extract millions from corporations,but don’t bother to pay their taxes because no one dare say anything to them.
    “Want to influence a casino bid? Polish your corporate image? Not be labeled a racist? Then you need to pay Al Sharpton,” the story begins.

    According to the report, the money goes to Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) and in return, the companies get “the reverend’s supposed sway in the black community or, more often, his silence.”

    CA Illegal Immigrant at DMV: ‘Nobody’s Passing’ Written Test

    At a DMV in south Sacramento, Veronica Oropeza, a 28-year-old illegal immigrant who has reportedly been driving without a license for six years, reportedly failed her written exam twice.

    “Nobody’s passing,” she told the Sacramento Bee in Spanish.

    As the Bee noted, “those who passed the written exam were given a driver’s permit and required to return another day to take the road test.”
    That on’t stop them from driving illegally,since they already live here illegally.

    Chuck Todd REALLY wants D.C. police chief to say she’s faced terrible sexism, but she says NOPE!
    This is an enjoyable segment where Chuck Todd does his metrosexual best to reach out to Washington D.C.’s female police chief with his liberal feminist understanding of all the hardships she’s had to face under the totalitarian arm of the patriarchal system, but she dispels that real quick!

    Obama’s State of the Union Sales Tour

    We can look forward to hearing this prick gloat about how he saved the country and everything is peachy keen,he’s got our backs and he don’t care of the republicans won’t help him flush whats left of our freedoms,he’ll do it his damn self.
    President Obama will travel to three cities this week where he will offer a preview of his January 20th State of the Union address.

    In Detroit on Wednesday, Obama will celebrate the end of the “auto rescue” which he claims saved one million auto industry jobs and is responsible for the resurgence of manufacturing in the United States. Obama will make no mention that his bailout of General Motors and Chrysler cost taxpayers $16 billion according to the latest Troubled Asset Relief Program Inspector General’s report.

    McConnell: American People ‘Want Things Done in the Political Center’
    Incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says now that Republicans control the Congress, President Obama needs to talk to Republicans.

    “And that’s good, because when the American people elect a divided government, they’re not saying they don’t want anything done. What they are saying is, they want things done in the political center, things that both sides can agree on,”

    Sure,you self-promoting, obnoxious turd.The populace rejected democrats in historic numbers because they want you to “work with Obama to get things done”.

    Newt Slams Obama on Race Relations: A Tragic Lost Opportunity For The First African American President
    this was strictly for the audience.Newt knows full well he never inrended to do anything about race relations except make them worse.The only way the democrats can get the lazy darkies off their asses to go vote is to keep them in a fit of rage,which is not that hard considering who they’re dealing with

    Some clerks ax nuptials so they won’t have to marry gays

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Clerks in at least five Florida counties say they’ll end courthouse weddings for everyone so they won’t have to marry same-sex couples starting next week.

    They’ll still be forced to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, thanks to U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle’s ruling on New Year’s Day. His Thursday ruling clarifies that all 67 Florida court clerks should begin issuing the licenses starting Tuesday, when a stay expires on Hinkle’s original decision invalidating the state’s ban on same-sex marriage expires.

    How fortunate we are to have people like Judge Hinkle who can substitute their own opinion for the votes of millions of citizens because he knows better.


  16. Baer told Rumor Fix in an exclusive interview, “She was ‘Elly May’ until the day she died. When I saw her for autograph signings or other gatherings she always dressed the same with pink or blue and, of course, those signature pigtails.”

    Still embracing the character of “Jethro Bodine”, Baer noted with a sad tone in his voice, “I’m the last man standing. All the actors, producers—everybody on the show is gone.”

    When Miss Douglas gave her autograph, she included the Bible verse Proverbs 3: 5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight.”

    Political Clown Parade

    Since I just happened to have watched these yesterday:

    Donna Douglas’s Twilight Zone episode, Eye of the Beholder, free to watch on Hulu. (Commercial runs first.) One of those Rod Serling half-hour stories that would have made a great ten-minute tale, but Douglas was pretty good. She also had a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it part in another TZ, a kind of Wonderful Life story, with Carol Burnett in the “George Bailey” role. Cavender Is Coming. Cavender is Clarence, played by the late Jesse White, best known as the lonely Maytag repair man. Actually the better of these two TZ stories.

    You can find the Beverly Hillbillies episodes on your own, I presume. 😀


  17. Three links and an image apparently put my last comment in moderation. Forgive my immoderateness, moderator? 😀


    • Pistol Pete

      I found out the hard way you can only post two links per reply otherwise it goes to moderation and CtH or BoB or Rose will have to deal with it.


      • Pete: “…two links per reply…”

        Tha’s me: always pushin’ the envelope.

        I jus’ could’a swored that I got away with leaving three links and an image in a comment a few weeks back.

        Is pushing the envelope anything like not being able to fight your way out of a paper bag?


  18. Apparently, Will Smith’s son has been mocked for tweeting odd things. I haven’t followed this story and I sure don’t want to pile on the mocking, but I did have to laugh at Jaden Smith’s Nonsensical Tweets Actually Make Perfect Sense As “Garfield” Comics. (Warning: Buzzfeed link.)


  19. Grunt’s amazing Christmas Review 2014 post ended with a Michael Martin Murphey album cover. (Do I show my age saying album?)

    Daughter saw it and pointed to the “Live in:” blurb, noting city #2 is… here! A little searching suggests it may have been recorded at the Cow Thieves & Outlaws Reunion out at Woolaroc Museum & Preserve, which is actually the next county over. But close enough to here. So that’s my launching-point for more local-color News from the Middle of America, y’all.

    News from here

    We know how to party ’round these parts.

    This is the month when the hearty souls of winter prepare to don fancy gowns, tiaras, Hawaiian shorts and costumes galore for a colorful plunge into icy cold water in a charity event unlike any found in Bartlesville other days of the year.

    News from hereabouts

    Do you enjoy the Great Outdoors and need a job?

    Tallgrass Prairie Preserve north of Pawhuska rolls on for miles. The Tallgrass Prairie Preserve is the largest preserved tract of native Tallgrass Prairie in the world. …

    The Turners have been docents at the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve, located north of Pawhuska, for 20 years.

    “We have people from all over the world who come to see it because they have heard about it,” Betty said. “Part of the uniqueness of this place is that there are some areas where you can stand and not see any evidence of mankind.

    “It’s pretty neat. And if you have some bison running through, that’s pretty nice, too.”

    Tallgrass Prairie Preserve is recruiting docents for 2015.

    MMmm… two links and an image.. Guess I better stop there.


    • That’s very cool, Mindful! Good and interesting local news. I’m also glad that your DD recognized the location off the MMM album! That’s actually quite the eclectic tour list. Old Murph gets around!


      • Grunt: “…quite the eclectic tour list.”

        Funny thing is, we’ve lived in two of those places; also spent considerable time in Springfield, when I had relatives residing there.

        Never heard of Anson, Texas, though. Googlymapping, it looks like about as smallville in the middle of nowhere as you can get.
