    It wasn't taught as optional when I was growing up. And whoever came up with the idea that it's optional had to have been on acid. It makes even less sense than dumping capital letters.

    My New Year's Resolution is to do much less. I'll try to be nicer to Husker.

    I've had some health problems the last few months and I'm taking a lot of fear and anger out on everybody around me and people here it seems. Like I said I'll try to do better.

    Been there. Wish you peace in 2019. In my case I said a prayer for peace and it worked.

    Sorry to hear you 're going through some difficulty. I pray 2019 is better.
    BTW I don't think anyone feels you have been anymore irascible than any of us.

    I am sure MrD was just making a joke and I know Sangre piled on in humor only ( piled on, get it?:smokin:)



    I know first hand how much coming to HF can mean in times of extreme stress so please do NOT stay away or try to temper your opinion.
    If I don't see you posting I will have to have Dion create a "Safe Space" for those of us suffering from the loss.

    I'm thinking she is moving to Bon Jovi blasting away
    But maybe she is more of a Whitesnake girl?

    I have moved into the Oxford comma camp myself in the last few years. I think it's a reaction to all the other lazy writing out there, which has made me notice more and more how our writing is becoming more and more ambiguous.

    All class, that one is.

    Mirrors apparently don't exist in some housholds. "Class" indeed.

    Honestly, she can be hot at times and look kinda "tore up" at other times - a "decepticon" as my late brother used to call them.

    On Feb 12, 2009 Ilhan Omar married Ahmed Elmi. This is their 10y anniversary
    Minnesota school records show that Ilhan and Ahmed share a father. If so, then she married her brother. Which looks alot like immigration fraud

    Nope, that was a different one. Dolores was always looking good.

    Even worse is Ilhan is a paranoid anti-Semite. Makes you wonder who her constituency is.

    People from Minnesota. You know, the people who elected Jesse "the Body" Ventura, Keith Ellison, and Al Franken.

    There is a large muslim population up there too. Lots of Somalis.

    Yep. It's hard to make Keith Ellison look like a reasonable guy, but she's well on her way to doing that.

    Turns out the Somali took funds from PACs incuding CAIR
    Per FEC @IlhanMN received ~$60,000 from PACs, incl 1000s of $ in 2018 from Council on American Islamic Relations, a Hamas-linked jihadist org & un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2009 Holy Land Foundation terrorism-financing trial.

    Yeah, CAIR is an all around nere do well. I think they provided lawyers for clock boy back in the day.

    I wonder if there is any data available to tell us how many White House visits CAIR got under that ******* who vacated the place early in 2017, vs the number of visits they have gotten since?

    It's not often that someone quotes himself and shows how wrong he was on something, but this is remarkable. I was reading this article by Jonah Goldberg about the intersectional Left turning on Bernie Sanders basically for racist, sexist, and ageist reasons. It's interesting, but what really jumped out at me was his reference to a Politico article that broke down the AOC-Crowley race.

    I and others had assumed that the district's changing demographics are what did Crowley in. That wasn't true. It was the woke, riche, white liberals who did him in.

    "New York's 14th Congressional District is more than 70 percent people of color, and 50 percent Hispanic. Ocasio-Cortez, who was born in the Bronx to a Puerto Rican mother, fit the district’s changing demographics, and neatly fit a larger narrative of a national Democratic Party in which increasing progressivism and diversity go hand and hand.

    But a closer examination of the data tells a different story. Ocasio-Cortez’s best precincts were places like the neighborhood where Bonthius and his friends live: highly educated, whiter and richer than the district as a whole. In those neighborhoods, Ocasio-Cortez clobbered Crowley by 70 percent or more. Crowley’s best precincts, meanwhile, were the working-class African-American enclave of LeFrak City, where he got more than 60 percent of the vote, and portions of heavily Hispanic Corona. He pulled some of his best numbers in Ocasio-Cortez’s heavily Latino and African-American neighborhood of Parkchester, in the Bronx—beating her by more than 25 points on her home turf."

    Reality never seems to surprise. The rich white virtue signaling egomaniacs who are able to care about the poor while disregarding the impact the ideas have on our country because they already have theirs.

    They are my least favorite people in politics. The sanctimony coupled with false intellectualism and smugness is a pretty toxic combination. And to be fair, there are people on the Right like this, but in the current era, the seem to dominate on the Left.
