    So lets kick off 2017 with something mild but interesting none the less — http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-31/narrative-smashed-stats-most-americans-did-not-vote-hillary-clinton — Nearly half the nation that could have did not vote back in Nov. The case being made that Clinton really did not win the popular vote if viewed in the totality of the population. (Which says what for Trump?)

    Drdog, good article and graphic in #6

    I firmly believe that the media cost Hillary more votes than they cost Trump with their “Hillary is inevitable” bullshit.

    P.s., I haven’t been watching ‘Animal Planet’ lately…have there been any more sightings of Hillary?

    I fell asleep at about 10:30 CST. Woke up to fireworks at midnight. The Bozlets had friends over, and they raided my stash of illegal (purchased in Indiana and smuggled across the IL state line) fireworks. I came downstairs as they were coming back in the house and asked them if shot them all. Bozlet #1 said “Don’t worry Dad, we left you plenty to shoot off on January 20th.”

    fight on, JBoz, et al… 1/20/2017 I will be watching an Inauguration for the first time since Reagan was sworn in. AND, I intend on buying a nice bottle of Scotch to enjoy it with. (Mrs. JR doesn’t know about that yet 🙂 )

    “He also added that computers are a risky form of communication. “It’s very important, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old fashioned way because I’ll tell you what, no computer is safe,” Mr. Trump added. “I don’t care what they say, no computer is safe. I have a boy who’s 10 years old, he can do anything with a computer. You want something to really go without detection, write it out and have it sent by courier.” — Trump

    Surprisingly from a security angle that is not bad advise coming from someone who is not that tech savy. A manually crypto’d message with the kings wax seal on it worked well in the 14th century and would still do so fairly well today. Need to update my lesson plans to include a ‘Kings Challenge’ exercise.

    In reality the first day of the year is the same as opening day in baseball. It carries the same weight as every other day/game. As far as baseball goes, I would much prefer attending a game in June, July or August when the weather is better.

    As much as we are all looking forward to 1/20, it appears this POS has no plans to go away.


    Obama is like a human gonorrhea bacterium…inadvertently acquired during a momentary lapse in judgement, and now a bitch to get rid of.

    This is where Trump needs to play dirty, and I pray that he will. Clearly, there is dirt on Obama. Plenty of dirt. Records at Columbia University…gay bars on Halsted Ave in Chicago…not to mention massive criminal activity coverup while POTUS. Trump has the keys now, and he should get his hands on some juicy intel, maybe even a smoking gun or two. From there, it’s just a matter of having a little private chat with Jugears.

    In the words of Walter White (aka Heisenberg), “You understand the concept of leverage. You have NONE.”

    JBoz #12 –

    Only 8 fewer beers?

    I remember when we just graduated from high school and had a picnic at Kensington State Park. The park police didn’t arrest us, but they did confiscate our beer.

    gn – Can you still legally drink 3.2 beer at 18 in Ohio?

    Obozo will do everything possible to undermine Trump. He’s special because he’s half black you know. Common decency doesn’t apply to him.

    I fully expect Trump to “go Roman” on Obama, et al, after Jan 20.

    I’ll be really disappointed if he doesn’t.

    The reality is that no matter what Trump does he will be accused of being an a$$hole…so might as well be one, eh?

    Migrants in Sweden unhappy because the government isn’t providing free housing and girlfriend:


    I wonder how many incidents occurred last night that the European governments and media are working to cover up. We’ll find out in the coming weeks.

    Yes, we dodged a bullet when Hillary lost.

    JR, sadly we will never know one way or the other. Trump could whisper something into Obama’s ear at the inauguration that shuts him down and that would be the end of it. One can only hope right?

    21 BUT it will be PravdaUSA….the globalist propagandists who will be doing the accusing. And this time we Hobbits and Deplorables will have a President who is a MAN and not a Uniparty place holder, a man that will fight back and we will fight right with him.

    It’s WAR…..game on!

    For all the damage Obama did to the US in the past eight years, I can think of one positive. At least he not a mad man who wants to start WWIII … a man I reluctantly voted for in 2008.

    JR #27 –

    I fear McCain would have been even worse. He would have brokered a deal between Democrats and RINOs to pass amnesty and he just might have started a nueclar war.

    As soon as amnesty is passed, the US as we know it is finished.

    It doesn’t sound very Christian, but I voted for McCain-Palin hoping McCain would die.

    bc ~ It was nice to have a couple weeks off, but we’ll be paying for it in January. That’s the month when school ball and spring travel ball overlap so it’s pretty much baseball 7 days a week. Good thing I’m a baseball fan. 😉 Did you have a white Christmas?

    Happy New Year everyone. Late to the party BUT I got my lights down and the tree put away for another year – Yea.

    bc3b – 1st you are asking the wrong guy about 3.2 beer. Just because I am half Italian and a quarter Slav you would think I would like alcohol. Have no taste for the stuff. BUT, 3.2 beer was done away with back in the early 80’s. Prior to that, 3.2 was sold everywhere in Ohio for those between 18 to 21. Big on the campus circuit. College kids could drink a ton of it before getting a buzz. Remember Papa Joes on Ohio State’s south campus where they sold beer in buckets. Lot of places around campus sold the stuff in buckets, pails, whatever could hold a lot of beer.

    TLS – We had about 8 inches of snow about a week before Christmas, but most of it was gone by Christmas Day.

    GN – Thanks for the update on 3.2 or the lask of 3.2 beer. I moved from Ohio in 1978 and still remember the red caps on 3.2 bottles. I remember Hudepohl and Schoenling, which were both popular in southern Ohio.

    bc2b – both of those were from Cincinnati, remember Hudepohl for sponsoring Red games on WLW.

    gn –

    I remember going to a Reds game at Riverfront amd a black beer vendor yelling, “Who wants a Chinese beer? Who wants a Schoenling?”

    Hedepohl was my favorite beer when I lived in Dayton.

    “I fully expect Trump to “go Roman” on Obama, et al, after Jan 20.
    I’ll be really disappointed if he doesn’t.”

    He should, but my guess is he will not, or not nearly as soon as we all would like, same with Hillary. Our side never learns that when we have these people in the cross-hairs, they need to be finished off, else they and their minions survive to only come back again. Sweep the leg, no mercy!

    KH, Trump may not “go Roman” right away…but I also truly believe he will NOT take bullshit off the Democrats/media. If they play “nice” he will play (reasonably) nice.

    But if they pull a knife…he’ll pull a gun. In ‘Untouchables’ lingo. 🙂
