Good morning AB, All.

Thank you AB for doing this thread. Played three games of Candy Crush waiting for this thread. Not to worry, I made it to the next level.

Singing at mass at 10 am. Am taping all the talk shows and have opinions, will share.

Had a nice Thanksgiving, missed my beloved husband.

Got two men interested in me. Should I care? One is a lawyer and an author.

Nah.....I’ve been married four times. That’s enough for anyone.

AB - I'm sure you're pretty bummed after yesterday, but I must tell you -- that was one of the most exciting finishes to a football game I've seen in a long time.

Up here in Illinois the most exciting thing to happen in the last 2 years was breaking a 19 game conference losing steak.

Whodathunkit.

That was an amazing win for Auburn, considering that Bama was going for a field goal with 1 second on the clock.

==

Some 40 years ago I watched a college game on TV (I don’t even remember the teams). At the very last moment on the goal line, they made a play, it looked like a TD or a major stop, but it was too close to call, thousands poured onto the field.

The officials couldn’t/wouldn’t make a decision for nearly 3 days, because they had to review tapes, etc. In those days they didn’t have 500 cameras recording everything.

I also recall another college game of that same era where 3 TDs were made in something like 1 minute and 28 seconds.

Hey, I work for Auburn University. I am very proud of them. I love Alabama, too. So I’m proud of both! I’m lucky to live in the number one college football state for the past four years!

Roll Eagle!

There was a similar play at the end of the first half when the Giants played the Bears a few years ago. The Giants tried a long field goal and Devin Hester returned it for a TD. The problem is that the team kicking the field goal has slow offensive linemen on the field who can’t outrun the returner and are not used to these plays. I am surprised it does not happen more often.

Don’t feel sorry for me! I very much enjoyed the game.

I’m one of the very few in Alabama who admit to rooting for both teams. When they play the Iron Bowl, I root usually root for Alabama, but several weeks ago, and I remember telling my daughter this, there was something happening on the Plains (Auburn), and Alabama better watch out.

When Auburn beat Georgia two weeks ago with that bounced off the helmet pass, I knew that the Iron Bowl would be an awesome game.

My daughter is pretty bummed out today, and I keep laughing at her. OK, I’ll stop now!

After viewing this week’s lineup....

With the possible exception that Fox could mention the Geneva Cave In, the whole day has the look of a WTF or just a Mass Spin session. Again.

Well, we’ve still got grandkids running around after Thanksgiving, so I do believe I’ll go do worthwhile and rewarding things with them, drop back into stealth/lurk mode here and come look at the summary later.

Sorry, guys.

“Got two men interested in me. Should I care? One is a lawyer and an author.

Good morning Sister Pat, AB and all,

Sister Pat - As my dear, departed Mother used to tell me, “You don’t have to marry him, just go out with him and have a good time! And, you may meet some interesting people through him.”

From one single woman to another - if you can enjoy their company - go out with them — - -have a nice meal, glass of wine, cup of coffee, see a movie or play, walk on the beach, etc. You may have interesting conversations and a nice time. I’m fairly certain that you can keep the conversation lively :-)

My $.02 FWIW - go out with them! You don’t have to marry them or even let the relationship become hugh and series!

Yes, Vet, I noticed that...

Sometimes the Sunday shows try to set a meme based on news events, like Sandy Hook, or Obama himself and all by himself killing Bin Laden (rolls eyes)... Sometimes you can see they’re AVOIDING the news that makes democrats look bad.

Today seems like an avoiding Sunday. They’re all over the place.

What SHOULD be on the shows this week (if I was in charge):

1. The Iranian appeasement and the new Middle East nuclear power.

2. The Knockout Game (and it ISN’T just paranoia) and why are so many blacks more racist then ever before?

3. China makes a grab for Japanese Islands, and how we stop it.

4. The November 30th deadline is over for the Obamacare website. He lied again (saying it would be fixed).

Panel-RAT losers Jane Harmon and Evan Bayh both distancing themselves from ObamaCare. (both voted for it)

Brit Hume, who went on the website and found only 1 plan and it didn’t include his wife’s doctor, simply said “It’s a mess”.

Hayden says they need to continue the policy of last week against China — and keep the 2 unarmed military aircraft in the region.

[Unarmed? Did I hear right? We are sending unarmed aircraft to monitor? Surely, Hayden misspoke.]

Mass Spin Session; Not so much at MTP when Andrea Mitchell piles on with a word of criticism of Obie’s management. Knock me over. David Brooks questioning governments ability to do big things.....this is probably too big for govt.

You know Fox is going to be a little bit more objective. Not by as much as I once thought. I used to think (snort!) that they were conservative, but they’re just less hardcore liberal/leftist/socialist than the other networks.

Snowden may have put together a ‘doomsday cache’ of documents that he threatens will be released, should anything happen to him.

[If it were not for Snowden’s defection and publication of some documents, would we know how extensive the NSA and FED spying on citizens was? Should we be concerned? This is a hot-button issue that needs a lot more discussion.]

They never said that, they said "Fair and Balanced"

Of course it they were totally conservative in their coverage, it would almost provide balance to the lying RATagandists.

MTP; panel ties Obiecare to Hillarycare. R's are sooo nasty to bring up her name and tie her to Obiecare.

Lest we forget, dems were thrilled we nominated the founder of MassCare because they could use it to beat him like a drum thus neutering the issue and the candidate.

Redux....Hillary won't get the nomination for that reason, imho. I'd predict the failures of Obiecare exposed over the upcoming year will keep her out of the race.

Hi there AB!

Doing well, thanks - hope you are, too!

The Seattle area (except for the Libs/Socialists) can be absolutely gorgeous during all seasons, especially when it’s sunny! Fall - blue skies, sunshine, a cool, crisp day, blue water, green everywhere, and gorgeous colors of the leaves. Spring can be pretty spectacular, too - lots and lots of blooming flowers and shrubs!

Yes, Mt Rainier on a sunny day is awesome in all its glory! Glad you finally got to see it.

Really windy at my place this a.m. - supposed to get rain and possibly snow in the next few days. I live in the foothills of the Cascades, so if it snows, I work from home (don’t want to try manuevering up and down various hills in ice and snow).

I didn’t watch the game, but they showed the final play on Fox and Friends this a.m. - - that Auburn play was something else - -so were the announcers - LOL!

Seahawks v.s. Saints here tomorrow night - think it will be a tough game, but fingers crossed for my Hawks! I should probably warn my neighbor not to worry about my screaming —I’m just watching the game.

No, they all walked around with their eyes shut and fingers in their ears going "la la la la".

The reason I called them losers is because these particular RATs jumped ship and are no longer in Congress. Jane Harmon had some scandal, Bayh just whined and said didn't like it.

News items we won't see on today's shows:

How many people named Obama are enrolled in Obamacare?

When a person gets a subsidy, is that amount deducted from the monthly premium they have to pay for Obamacare?

Is the Obamacare subsidy a refundable credit?

Is it true that the real reason government workers are not subject to Obamacare is because it does not require coverage of the worst illness to infect Washington, DC (Chronic Rectal Cranial Inversion)?

No, it's because they belong to a group and are twice exempted by the whining unions, and the dictator's decree delaying the "employer's mandate".
