Can we get a bit of birthday love? My mom turned 97 today!

Born 7-19-1925 in Harford

She loves:

NY Yankees
Tennis
Jeopardy
US Figure skating
Some stupid network show about a smart kid?


Sorry, can't help but mention for the millionth time,
Her name is Mary. She lost her husband of 72 years, Joseph. Early on to Covid because trump didn't warn anyone.

Who pleaded the fifth to J6

Couldn't tell you off the top of my head, can you ?

I remember the committee showing people saying it and recognizing that they had pleaded the fifth x number of times, but couldn't name the people.

Maybe legal eagles can chime in. Would it be so bad to make a big deal about it, given we know, of course, it's absolutely their right?

If not, that's how I would end the hearings. From a PR perspective. Have someone announce who the person is and how many times they pleaded the fifth, and then just show that tape, over and over again. I know it would take time but it would have a huge impact IMHO. And then it'd be crystal clear who wouldn't talk

If you have no blockbuster, make some news J6!!!

First to predict??? In 2024, We will be running against...

My total guess....

Ron Desantis

With running mate...

Nicky Haley


On edit:. And they will moderate tons, but will say that FG was the best president...but too many people tried to stop him and we are ushering in a new Republican era! Little bit of trump and a whole lot of our new thinking for the future

What's a measly $700k to tRump when you have $100 million??

https://www.azmirror.com/2022/07/15/its-on-us-town-to-foot-public-safety-bill-this-time-for-trump-rally/





clip
The Center for Public Integrity in 2019 identified eight other cities across the country that it said were trying to claim a total of about $700,000 from the Trump campaign


FEC states candidates not responsible?
The Federal Election Commission confirmed that there is no requirement “for congressional or presidential campaign committees to pay for expenses incurred by a state or local municipality in connection with a federal officeholder’s or candidate’s campaign event.” If candidates do foot the bill, they are allowed to use campaign funds to pay security costs, the FEC said.


Tucson's smart!
Mandel said that due to the experience of not getting paid by either campaign for the 2016 rallies, Tucson has since changed the licensing agreement and policy for its convention center. Not only are event organizers responsible for all costs including security costs to use the convention center, they now must pay the costs in advance to be given access to the facility.


Wonder if this is a ploy to absolve himself of financial responsibility
Trump will not be appearing as a candidate at Saturday’s event in Prescott Valley but will instead be there to rally support for the Republican candidates he has endorsed in Arizona.

Imagine you're an egomaniac

You lose to Biden and you can't take it... You go to the ends of the earth, listening to crazies, ignoring your attorneys, because your ego is so insatiable that you can not handle a loss. You even go as far as trying to kill your lapdog VP? Who cares.

Fast forward, your criminal actions are being uncovered. What do you do? Normal people would await outcome. But NO - you go back to that group of people who adored you - your crazy MAGats, because it's your safe place. You run again because you have an uncontrollable need for their blind adoration. Your safe place where you can dance with no rhythm.

What did you worry about as a kid?

For me it is like one iota of what our kids are dealing with today. Covid, and shootings, and the environment collapsing. And a first lady that uses the F word in the same sentence as Christmas!?

Makes my ice cream falling off my cone, into the sand, while riding my bike home, pretty damn miniscule.

Makes me want to work with kids... But jeez what in the world would you even say to them?
