SO I WENT TO THE CABLE COMPANY

They sent me a new set-top converter box when I finally replaced my old SDTV with a hi-def one back sometime last year. I’d forgotten about returning it until I got a notice saying we had one or more old set-top boxes that needed to be replaced by 10/6. DW’s set has a box thats almost seven years old. Since the office is a long way across town I figured I’d kill two birds and get her replacement while I returned my old one. The best laid plans, etc., etc.

When I got there I had to take a number. There were 19 people ahead of me and two “customer service people” I think they were called. You may not believe this, but patience is an attribute I never acquired. She said I’d have to disconnect the old box and bring it in. The new box on my other TV didn’t get hooked up until SS did it. I told her that would happen when a Poland China hog flew out of my nether regions.

Then I axed her why my bill went up $20 this month; was it just because they can or did they need more dough to send to the Democrat Party? (It’s Comcast,after all.) She just gave me a polite, ‘Please piss off, I have other people to abuse.’

My lawyer says he can probably plead my case down to a misdemeanor verbal battery charge. I’m out on bail at the moment.

    Kirsten Powers: DNC Shields Hillary From Having To Debate Other Candidates

    Following the first GOP debate, Democratic National Committee Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz disingenuously quipped to a reporter, “I sort of feel for my counterpart Reince Priebus because it’s pretty clear why they did everything they could to shrink the number of debates and shrink the exposure.”

    You know who else shrunk the number of debates? Democrats. Wasserman Schultz seems to be telling us why: Hillary Clinton can’t handle the exposure.

    BREAKING: Trump Likely to be BANNED from Future Republican Debates

    IS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THAT STUPID?…PROBABLY
    While taxpayers are often funding political debates, the Republican Party has the ultimate say over its own events. And while the GOP is supposed to stand for the principles of the Founding Fathers, it can be manipulated by the political establishment which can’t stand Trump’s conservative views.

    The real reason why the GOP is focusing on Trump’s threat to run as a 3rd party candidate is it would give them grounds to boot him from future debates. The Republican Party, to protect its interests, is probably willing to boot the front-runner candidate. And they have savvy enough operatives, such as Karl Rove, who are ready to do it…

    Planned Parenthood Lives for Corporate Welfare, Not Women’s Healthcare

    “Business leaders (must) recognize that their behavior is suicide, that it is suicide long term. To survive, long-term, they have to start opposing, rather than promoting, corporate welfare…This means stopping the subsidies, mandates and special privileges for business that enriches the haves at the expense of the have-nots.”

    Mr. Koch’s call to end corporate welfare rings true for Planned Parenthood, the “family planning” corporation that received $528.4 million in federal funds according to its most recent annual report.

    Greta Van Susteren: Yes, it’s True… Donald Trump Helped Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi (VIDEO)
    IT WOULDN’T SURPRISE ME IF TAHMOORESSI SHOWED UP AT A TRUMP RALLY.JUST BECAUSE.
    Greta Van Susteren told her audience this week that it was true that Donald Trump helped out Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi after his release from a Mexican jail. Greta also said Obama wouldn’t even pick up a phone to help the Marine.


    “In all seriousness, Donald did help out Sgt. Tahmooressi. He sent him some money to help him jump start his life. Sgt. Tahmooressi rotted in a Mexican prison for 214 days. President Obama wouldn’t even pick up the phone to help.”

    But Obama did have plenty of time to go golfing while Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi rotted in a Mexican prison

    Hillary’s email scandal will head for the bone yard, right there with the others
    I HAVE YET TO SEE ANY POLITICIAN PAY A SERIOUS PRICE FOR THEIR CRIMINALITY.SHE’LL WALK AWAY,LIKE ALWAYS
    The investigations and the scrutiny will have their effect. A resignation here, a candidate choosing not to run there. But no one will go to jail or be punished in the legal sense for the violations of law in Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server for official State Department business.

    Washington, D.C., just like Wall Street, seems immune to punishment for the violation of law. Once a perpetrator has been nailed to the political wall, the issue decided, the political power shifts, and the political maneuvers result.

    Over 11 Hours of Air Time, GMA Allows Four Minutes to Hillary E-mails
    THIS IS HOW DEMOCRATS GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING.THEIR WHORES WILL ALWAYS PROTECT THEM

    From Sunday through Friday, ABC’s Good Morning America allowed a scant three minutes and 49 seconds of coverage to the unfolding details of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal. That’s despite an available 11 hours of air time during the week.
    But one wouldn’t know that from watching GMA. While the two hour-long program skipped the important Clinton story on Friday, the hosts of the superficial show devoted 15 minutes to a rock concert by the band 5 Seconds of Summer.

    Accused Child Molester and Obama Bundler to Host VIP Democratic Party Fundraiser
    A PARTY WITHOUT MORALS OR SCRUPLES WILL STOOP TO ANY DEPTHS FOR MONEY

    Terry Bean, a former ‘gay porn kingpin’, revered gay rights pioneer and bundler for the 2012 reelection campaign of President Barack Obama, is scheduled to host a “VIP” fundraiser for the Multnomah County, Oregon Democratic Party next month–nine days after the start of his September 1 trial for having sex with a fifteen-year-old boy. Bean faces charges of two felony counts of third-degree sodomy and one misdemeanor count of sexual abuse in the third degree. Prosecutors have alleged in court that Bean has a “history of abusing young boys.”

    Union Official Charged With Illegal Clinton Donations Indicted for Mail Fraud

    Former Broward Teachers Union president allegedly steered illegal contributions to Clinton’s 2008 campaign
    NOTHING TO SEE HERE,FOLKS,KEEP MOVING
    “It is alleged that after the BTU received the $80,000 payment from the School Board of Broward County, Santeramo authorized payments from the [union’s] Accountability Program account for himself and at least one other employee of the BTU to which they were not entitled,” DOJ said in a press release announcing the indictment.

    Those funds were supposed to go toward training programs and leave time for teachers working on “accountability projects,” DOJ said. Instead, Santeramo pocketed tens of thousands of dollars in payments from Broward schools.

    As he faces those charges, Santeramo is also awaiting trial in Broward County on 20 criminal counts, including racketeering, grand theft, fraud, money laundering, and charges involving illegal campaign contributions.

    The latter involves alleged schemes to illegally direct tens of thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, among other political efforts.

    Republicans recruiting more women candidates to hold the line in state-level races

    The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) has a daunting task ahead: funding a $125 million effort over the next several years to make sure Republicans maintain the dominance they have in their respective states’ legislatures. Right now, two-thirds of the governorships are in Republican hands, and the GOP controls the most state legislatures since 1920.

    Trump calls O’Malley a ‘disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby’
    THIS IS GREAT ENTERTAINMENT

    Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized “like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby” for his remark that “all lives matter,” Donald Trump said in an excerpt of a new interview aired Friday on Fox News.

    In an interview with Jeanine Pirro for her program “Justice” set to air Saturday night, Trump said that the former Maryland governor did not need to say he was sorry.

    Report: Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin Abuse Secret Service Agents
    THE MUSLIM HAG LEARNED FROM THE QUEEN BITCH

    The FBI investigation has been galvanized further by recent revelations involving emails sent by Abedin and Clinton aide Cheryl Mills, as well as the fact that State Department BlackBerry devices belonging to Abedin and Mills have likely been liquidated or sold.
    Another Los Angeles imbroglio occurred when Abedin, who was not wearing a pin certifying her identity, tried to bluster past a female Secret Service agent. The agent, unaware of Abedin’s identity, said, “You don’t have the proper identification to go beyond this point.” Another agent told Kessler, “Huma basically tried to throw her weight around. She tried to just force her way through and said belligerently, ‘Do you know who I am?’’

    The Clinton Royal Court
    FROM DIANNY:
    According to Secret Service agents interviewed for my book The First Family Detail, Abedin can be just as rude and nasty as Hillary. A former agent recalls helping Abedin when she got lost driving Chelsea to the February 2008 Democrat presidential debate in Los Angeles.

    ‘She was belligerent and angry about being late for the event,’ the former agent says. ‘No appreciation for any of it, not a thank-you or anything. That was common for her people to be rude.’
