Heh! (I’ll need more coffee before I can properly groan at Mac’s thread pic.)

For TeX and Sven:

Good morning Mac, Fatwa, and GN,

Watching the talking heads this morning going on about Hillary!’s emails and that she did/never did receive classified emails on her private server.

Here’s where I’m confused: if she never, ever, not in a million years ever received classified information via email, then how was classified information given to her? Or the U.S. Secretary of State never needed classified materials in the performance of her job?

What am I missing here?

Hai, Mac and Sven!

I think I need a safe space from mornings.

Me, too; hee!

OTOH, despite getting up at 7:00 this morning (which is “sleeping-in” for me lately), I also knew that leftover steak fajitas awaited. (We took FTR and her family out for her birfday dinner last night.)

Teh fajitas provided a little additional motivation; just had a light “brunch” of same; looking forward to more later.

Riffing off of Mac’s Kool-Aid comment:

“I knew this decision would come because of my slight advantage of understanding NYC and what and how Trump has done what no one on the planet could have done with such success. No one man, no corporation. Not Bloomberg with his 34 Billion and his insider Jewish advantages who hasn’t built diddly squat and leases space and does not own, nor did he design the so-called Bloomberg Tower, because he can’t build what Donald does.”

What is an “insider Jewish advantage” and how much do they cost?

I sure don’t know. Funny how even a relatively small community like Joooos has a caste system; guess I’m an untouchable. (And not the “heroic” Eliot Ness type, dang it.)

Thanks, Mac: an interesting guy. From back in the age when actors had lives and careers before they became actors.

Darn, I though fer sure you would know, Fatwa. More Trump-supporter wisdom:

“To traverse it and succeed at any level is amazing. To create projects and see them to fruition, a vision-to-reality, risking hundreds of millions of dollars and your brand every time is astounding. To do it time and again. To transform Mid-town, downtown, West Side, Upper West Side, East Side, is stuff of heroic fiction. Like going to the Moon and Mars on the same rocket, planting flags on both that can be seen from Earth on a clear day.”

Yes, Trump’s achievements are right up there with the Normandy invasion, Lewis and Clark, the Constitutional Convention, building the first transcontinental railroad, the Manhattan project, and the slinky.

A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven, Mac, and Fatwa!

Is the “Don’t Shred on Me” flag also racist?
If you exclude certain people from your “safe space”, is that discrimination?
If Hillary never received classified information on her private server, how did it get there?
When Fatwa says he doesn’t know what “insider Jewish advantage” is, is he telling the truth, or is it taqiyya?

I never knew Peter Ortiz was patterned after Donald Trump.

The “Conservative” Treehouse is all in for Trump and brooks no dissent: “You are either with us, or you are not.”

And if you are not, then don’t waste their time with your questions, doubts, or uncertainty about Trump. Go away cuz this election is too important to waste time on concern-trolls: “Morale is a critical component. Gnats, intentional or accidental, must be addressed. There’s no time for long-winded discussion. Join, or get the heck out of the way. The pace can be ferocious….”

“You not only are ignorant of the facts, the situation and the reality. You are arrogantly wasting our time trying to put a tiny, miniscule problem behind us. Everything you postulate in support of your opinion and angst is coming across as childish. (See Ted Cruz and Mark Levin).”

“Grow the tough skin. Stiffen you spine. Get real. Saving America is so much bigger and crucial than your whimpering…This is about the existential threat to Liberty in America. Our nation needs soldiers in all forms….We have the right man. He has the right mission. We will win. Fight with us or withdraw.”

Yes, the time for debate is over. It’s now time for unquestioning obedience to a man that can’t even get out of his own way or it’s the end of America. And that will be on YOU.

Yeah, like that kind of rhetoric is going to get me to support Trump.

Mac --

I’ll have to learn more about Peter Ortiz; sounds like quite a guy. Thanks for the heads-up.

…is it taqiyya?

Don’t think there’s a Yiddish word for that. 👿

As re Trump, Hillary and both major parties: they are, IMHO, traitors to the founding principles of this country -- if not in fact -- and should be dealt with accordingly.

There is not a single government institution which has my confidence any more…with the possible exception of the military rank and file.

CivWar II seems increasingly likely and will make v. 1.0 look a a fookin’ picnic.

I think we’ve reached a point where political assassinations will occur either this year or the next. We already have ISIS running killing more or less at will and we’ve got the BLM crowd plotting and carrying out the murder of armed police, so I figure that politicians are next on the list.

The govt response to that is probably not going to be effective or good.

It’s a weird time in America and things are spiraling out of control for no single good reason.

Nope. No surprise.
