Sunday Morning Talk Shows and no appearances by Leland Yee and Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow—???
The world’s leading experts on gun control not worth a few minutes on DNC Dave’s shindig—??
“Guns for Yee but none for thee.” - Rush
Cue the cello. (And, if you don’t have one, Uncle Lee can get you one.)
P.S.S. Note to white comedian Shanklin (and a nod to Sir Paul):
“Uncle Leland and Shrimp Boy Raymond....we’re so sorry but we haven’t sold an AK all day.”
ABC - Can Christie make a comeback? and discussing Republican 2016 Presidential candidates
Panel thinks Republicans will pick safe candidate: Jeb Bush - except Donna Brazile..... she brings up Rand Paul as a possibility in the Tea Party circles. Krystal doesn’t agree with Paul, but does think he has a message.
Matthew Dowd - money matters much less than the message (referring to candidates going out to LV to “kiss the ring” of Sheldon Adelson.)
I expect Boehner did just that. Video captures Boner showing his disdain and just how furious he is with Reid!
Disgusting blackout on the Yee story. FOX is spending their Sunday minutes on their never ending Christie campaign.
Albeit, mandatory third party coverage for more services was the antithesis of what should have occurred. Medical savings accounts (MSA) with catastrophic insurance is the only viable option.
You have a way of saying it all buddy,just too good.
The MSM has made lying the norm. They refuse to correct the lie when the person lying has a D for Democrat next to their names. So I think it is safe to say the MSM is the voice of the Democratic Party. When someone lies for such a long time, it is hard to believe anything that is said.
They seem to get pleasure from lying; they behave like undisciplined children who receive no punishment. The MSM has reinforced the lying so now it is the norm. Many people say “ha ha they all lie.” The adverisers on the MSM are often lying too. The only punisher is to vote against them and not buy what they are selling. The message must be sent at the polls. There are consequences for lying for elections and MSM ratings.
The question is how many of them are actually paying or are getting "premium support" where many pay $3,4, or 5 bucks per months or nada as in the thousands of cases of medicaid.
If Bridget Kelly is able to get immunity, I don’t see Christie going anywhere. She will make sure of it.

Thanks for posting. Everyone alive should see this.
Fox roundtable spent the entire time on Christie. Nothing else in the world is going on except a traffic jam inquiry. Nice work Wallace.
I haven’t been watching the political Sunday shows for some time, but decided to tune in today because I’m stuck at home, sick.
ABC was one BORING show. Think I’ll check out Meet the Press with Chuck F Todd.
The thugs in the Kremlin brought in a former KGB (now FSB) Lt Col named Vladimir Putin, who leaked a videotape of the prosecutor having a threesome with 2 prostitutes.
The MSM will spin this In favor of the Democrats, forcing more political advertisements during the elections this year. The MSM is a money generating machine keeping division alive for profit. Many people are kept entertained watching sports, movies and music.
Few people know what is actually going on in the political world. It is sometimes very painful to know the truth. Lots of our country is taking a nap while Rome falls.
I think Rush said, "I know them like every square inch of my glorious naked body".
MTPress discussing Russia/Ukraine issues. Correspondent in Ukraine says Ukranian military are not well equipped but claim their moral is good. Ukraine is worried with places like Donetsk asking for a referendum to join Russia.
Unmentioned, but if Hillary suffers a single seizure and/or stumble and fall on camera -- the 2016 election could suddenly get very interesting.
Put another way, could Cuomo or Biden carry anything more than the bluest of blue states? Against a Republican who's "safe" or even one who's "unsafe"?
F.Chuck in for DNC Dave tuning the fine points of bridge delays with Rudy JUli by the FB. NBC seems to have forgotten that half the dems are on trial for corruption.
Barrasso: forment used twice, probably meant foment. Used concerning, probably meant disconcerting. But hey, it doesn’t matter. Chris asked for ‘your analysis’, sounded like ‘your urinalysis’.
An organized scheme to win the disability lottery jackpot.
But then I just mixed up Barrasso wuth Rogers...so I am the bigger dufus.
Very well said.Hard to imagine so many stupid voters that decide our future actually exist but they do.
The DI Trust Fund will be exhausted in 2016. From the 2013 SS Trustees report:
Social Securitys Disability Insurance (DI) program satisfies neither the Trustees long-range test of close actuarial balance nor their short-range test of financial adequacy and faces the most immediate financing shortfall of any of the separate trust funds. DI Trust Fund reserves expressed as a percent of annual cost (the trust fund ratio) declined to 85 percent at the beginning of 2013, and the Trustees project trust fund depletion in 2016, the same year projected in the last Trustees Report. DI cost has exceeded non-interest income since 2005, and the trust fund ratio has declined since peaking in 2003. While legislation is needed to address all of Social Securitys financial imbalances, the need has become most urgent with respect to the programs DI component. Lawmakers need to act soon to avoid reduced payments to DI beneficiaries three years from now.
It’s hard to label ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, the NY Times and others as “main stream media.” There’s nothing mainstream abut them. I’m using “old media” now, versus “new media” consisting of the Internet and other new media outlets. Others use different names but nothing has caught on that I know of. Lame street media, LSM, was one. Leftist or liberal media are two more.
Disgusting blackout on the Yee story. FOX is spending their Sunday minutes on their never ending Christie campaign.
That said, as I’m sure you know, they are inadvertently doing God’s work for us if they happen to eliminate Christie from the running for 2016.
He is himself a Demovik who believes in the Victory Mosque for NYC, amnesty for illegals, the idiotic “reaching across the aisle” pretense for initiating yet more leftism, etc.
As much as I deplore the idea of Jeb Bush and the Bush Crime Family (Rove) getting that nomination, even they would be a measureable upgrade over Christie.
Hilary will not win and may not win the primary. There is not enough voter fraud available for her and first woman will not carry the water this time.
Treatment options include putting the animal to sleep--without the consent of the animal.
It's a good viable option, it helps foment consumer driven healthcare, but it's not the only option.
I told you exactly what the problem is...Guaranteed Issue.
As far as the carriers are concerned, in a normal free-market health insurance environment, the average healthy family should still be able to get $250-500 deductible at a reasonable price. It's the unknown-quantity, deathly-ill, already sick, high-claims patients coming into the pool, that screws up the works and causes premiums to skyrocket.
First of all, and coming at it from the provider side, you must be aware of the main culprit contributing to "medical inflation". Hospitals are NOT providing "free healthcare" to anyone who comes through the doors.
They are cruelly jacking up the costs of procedures and care to insured or cash paying patients. The practice is called Cost Shifting and should be banned absolutely.
They need to fund their "generosity" by some other means.
We need to have a lot more private hospitals and practices. There isn't a single hospital in this state that IS NOT a "non-profit"...participating in the "public-private partnership" scam.
They make plenty of "non-profit" money on backs of the paying patients and taxpayers.
My take for today (zero on hand evidence)
Algo’s, data mining techniques, knowledge in Snowden’s brain, is used to sift through the archived metadata to get the dirt on corrupt and blackmailed politicos.
Said dirt is released, and in some cases politicos are arrested.
Note the conga line of democrats revealed this past week.
Once the leverage is exposed/removed, people can no longer be pressured and blackmailed
Bray, thanks for an insightful post. Nauti, you nailed it big time.
As a triage interviewer at a local food/clothing/etc bank, I speak with these folks 8-12 hours a week.
Disability is the new welfare. The instant someone is laid off from their job, they do two things: 1. Apply for unemployment (no complaint there, it is their right), and 2. get a disability lawyer and apply for same.
Disability is a great gig, if you can get it. And based on what I see and hear, if you’ve got a really good laywer, a completely abled person can get disability. Once you’re on it, a monthly check for life.
Nauti, you’re right; this needs to be severely cut back and more closely supervised. Unfortunately, that won’t happen until the RATS are gone.
So I put a period where a comma ought to have been.
I paid almost ten thousand dollars to the feds and almost two thousand to the state of Delaware.
Don’t even ask me about my new quarterly deposits I must make.
Saying you are a slave to the gummit would be racist.
Racist of course means disagreeing with the Democrat Party.
The problem was, and always has been, Politicos forced Hospitals to treat anyone showing up at a medical building. The Politicos never funded the law.
The Hospitals billed those costs to the insurance companies, escalating the cost of everything from pills, to band aids, to syringes.
Slip and fall lawyers, together with bleeding heart judges, piled on to make the problem worse.
The root problem is simple to fix, make people responsible for their own situation, and let charities catch the hard luck cases
That is true, but it is not the fault of the insurance companies. The first round of destructive public policy enactment in the states came as a spin-off of HilaryCare in 1993.
The liberal Northeastern States were a laboratory of how to destroy insurance companies and how to harm the people.
The control-freak RATs have been on this agenda for decades, that being the total destruction of the medical insurance industry. This is to pave the way for their final solution, Socialized Medicine...their term, "single-payer".
Thank you for adding important info about the pilfering of our tax dollars via the Disability Industry.
Kelly has 4 kids and it's a safe bet that she has 6 or even 7-figure legal bills at this point. I'll guess that if she had anything to trade, she would. The reason that last week's "internal" report was a smart tactic on Christie's part is not that it exonerates Christie -- it doesn't -- but that by reviewing all of Christie's phone records and personal e-mails, it puts evidence out that there is no e-trail leading through the door to the governor's office.
I don't see Christie at the top of the GOP ticket in 2016 because nominating another liberal Republican would be a recipe for another electoral disaster. So I'm baffled as to why all the media has been on a Christie witch hunt. Unless the media is panicking because they know something about Hillary that's not generally appreciated.
I was struck today with the realization that what I am watching on Fox is today’s equivalent of Marie Antoinette’s ‘ Let them eat cake’ moment.
Angus King placidly lying through his teeth.
The Round table discussion of Bridgegate was a fascinating study of the Hoi-poloi discussing the latest “Piss Christ” exhibit at the latest most fashionable N.Y. hangout for the Elites.
They were enjoying with Bacchanalian delight the travails of one of their own being eaten alive.
It was amazing to see how mush pleasure they derive at being able to “shove it” into the faces of the unwashed masses.
Ping to #19 and #40
Good points about Kelly. You could be right.....we’ll see what happens.
Re. “why go after Christie?” - because the dems see him as a valid opponent. I don’t want him as President because he’s far too liberal for me, but he could be attractive politically to many Republicans and independents...... and even some democrats. I would say the majority of voters today are not well informed; his brashness and take charge attitude can be appealing to many voters.
Thanks! In boarding gate now. Got a good 45 minutes or so before boarding. Starting to read the thread.
Man, TSA sucks, they really do. I’m/we’re treated like serfs, not free men.
