I kind of suck at pinocle, as I can never keep count of the trumpery. It is no fin, as the rest of the family counts all of the suits.

if you could be anywhere and doing anything right now, what would it be? i mean, i know you are already sitting over there in the Europe and that’s pretty cushy anyway.
I am feeling like i would like to be in a luxury spa in Kauai, having a massage while hearing the ocean a few steps away and smelling the tropical flowers. i have been there and done this and i want it again, right now.

Hmmmm, interesting question. I was in Hawaii once about 25 years ago, I still remeber the way it smelled when we got out of the airport. I honestly do not know how to answer that question, as I am somewhat longing for the Chesapeake Bay.....but that seems so boring. A beach chair on a deserted beach at the Outer Banks is kind of appealing, too.

I didn’t think WVU was even going to be in the tournament. I think they stuck them in Pittsburgh just so there can be some local rooting interest.

Old Arlen is whining about being betrayed by theO, after he betrayed us over the healthcare debacle. Talk about trumpery, he should just shut the heck up.

That's good though, to have some local rooting interest. I saw that Pitt didn't even make the NIT and didn't have the dignity to refuse the CBI, but instead is PAYING to play in that. goodness gracious but that is UNSEEMLY.

I ignored the trumpery and voted for Newt last week. The leftists have been champing at the bit all along for Romney so I’m not playing into their game.

ok, so he denies her on the ground of being a practicing Buddhist. the priest did the right thing, irregardless of the butch’s dismay. the only thing to be alarmed about was that she had the gall to parade up to ask for Communion.

Believing in reincarnation, for instance, is incomparable with the Catholic faith, or any Christian faith. It isn’t a reason TO give her Communion. Heck, many other Christians cannot even receive in the Catholic church.

They protected homosexual priests who abused altar boys, too. Didn’t make it right. I am not defending him, nor condemning him on the grounds of what is posted here. I AM sick of the watering down of my faith. There has to be a line somewhere. Not surprised the American Catholic church has taken this stand.

Although not quite frumpery
Her clothes seem to be trumpery
Michele's not the finest
On who we have an eye cast
But she does have a lot of rumpery.

once again, it sounds like a set-up, where a leftist sets out to make the church look INTOLERANT. i read on the thread that she told the priest herself that she lives with her female lover and is a practicing Buddhist, both of those things disqualify her from receiving communion.

None of them can, except for Orthodox in extremely grave circumstances and if they have no recourse to their own clergy.

I got the oddest feeling while watching the Breitbard vid of bammer speaking at the Derrick Bell rally all those years ago. First, I am actually shocked anyone found evidence he existed prior to his Senate run in Illinois; and secondly it was creepy hearing his voice that sounded EXACTLY like it does now. The same cadence, same inflection, same style - a conspiracy theorist might think it was completely doctored using a cgi bammy. Creepy.

I found that odd as well.

What I don’t find so surprising is that he fled his white family and chased after every black radical he could find. He embraced it all. I am sure they felt motivated and were happy to hide all this from “white” America. Critical Race Theory and all.
