He is delusional if he has the notion that he could pardon himself.

He's delusional already. Just saying lol

I heard through breaking news on the CBC less than a hour ago that Trump is having his lawyers check into whether or not he has the right to pardon himself and his family WRT the Russia probe.

From the WaPo


His audacity knows no bounds. This is a power grab that would upset the three branch government that we have.

There is no way that this would go unchallenged.

Why do I have to tell the truth just because other people do?

Former Ethics Chief: I Was ‘Horrified’ By Trump Lawyer Request

The problem is, Trump has no clue as to how the real world works. He seems to think that since he is rich, he can do whatever the **** he wants to do.

Just a wacko thought, but.... would it be worth learning to ride a bike down stairs, just to know how to handle that kind of unexpected encounter? 

I was riding a track bike with narrow profile tires. Not designed to ride down steep cement steps.

If I had been riding my 29-er hardtail mountain bike I probably would have been okay. Wide tires and all.

Both bikes are fixies (meaning they are fixed geared; no derailleurs)

If the Russians did have compromising information on T, my guess it is pf a sexual nature. There've been lots of mention of his preference for kink.

It is a sad state of affairs when someone as morally corrupt and narcissistic occupies the highest office.

My wife asked me to hand her the Chap Stick but I accidentally handed her the Gorilla Glue instead.

She hasn't spoken to me in weeks.

It is right by the spillway......and the irony is not lost on me!

I'm not blaming anyone but myself, but I think it would be a good idea to post signs alerting cyclists to descending steps ahead!

A week ago yesterday I was riding my track bike around Dallas' lovely White Rock Lake. I was pedaling up a concrete incline on the cycling/pedestrian path. When I got the top of it, to my horror I saw 4 steep concrete steps descending. I had no time to stop and I tumbled down, head over heels.

I did a face plant on the concrete. Resulting in a dislocated right thumb, two sprained wrists and a few nasty abrasions on my knees, one shoulder and my face. Fortunately my lips and teeth were spared and I didn't break anything.

I saw my orthopedist today and upon reviewing the ER X-rays he told me I'll be back 100% in 2 weeks.

I have been practicing, but I've had to modify my slide hand grip. I am using my ring finger and middle finger. Slide dexterity has taken a back seat, but I survived.

I'll be back on the bike saddle soon.

i decided to construct a two bone stand for use here in my studio. And since then I have been getting inquiries as to how I made it, would I make more to sell, etc.


Admitted, it is not aesthetically slick in appearance but it is very stable. It won't even begin to tip...even if one of the horns is lifted off of it.

I'd say that the real penalty is the damage to his credibility and reputation....

Meanwhile, in Hamburg (from the Independent):

"Donald Trump 'behaving like a dictator by leaving underqualified socialite daughter to fill in for him at G20'"

"The outcry was sparked after a Russian official, Svetlana Lukash, posted an image of Ms Trump – later apparently deleted – sitting at a table of world leaders alongside British Prime Minister Theresa May and Chinese President Xi Jinping."

Suggestion: If you do stay in this band and you or your horn section mates write horn parts, protect them. Do not leave them with the bandleader unless arrangements were made to be paid for your efforts.

There are countless situations in which a horn section gets canned yet the leader keeps the horn books. Not cool.

Watch your back!

This from a fellow libtard and proud of it. Bravo!!

 Leave our President alone people. There's absolutely no evidence out there that Trump colluded with the Russians except the Manafort thing, and the Flynn thing, and the Roger Stone thing, and the Cohen thing, and the Kushner thing, and the Carter Page thing, and the Jeff Sessions things, and the Wilbur Ross thing, and the JD Gordon thing, and the Erik Prince thing, and the James Comey firing thing, and the Russian hacking/Wikileaks thing, and the bro-love between TrumPutin thing, and the Russian propaganda machine favoring Trump thing, and the DJT "I have zero ties to Russia!" thing, and the Eric Trump "we get most of our financing from Russian banks thing", and the Donald Trump Jr. "Our portfolio is made up of a disproportionate amount of Russian money" thing, and the DJT "I sold a $60 million mansion to a Russian oligarch known for money laundering for $120 million that he never once lived in " thing, and the Trump business ties with Putin's favorite sports athlete Fedor Emilianenko thing, and the Trump International Corporation's mysterious private server connection to Alfa Bank, Russia's largest commercial bank thing, and the Special prosecutor being named thing, and the British Mi-6 spy dossier on Trump thing, and the I won't release my tax returns thing, and the Ivanka Trump's vacationing with Putin's girlfriend thing, and the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant in Moscow thing, and the Trump companies business ties to Felix Sater, a criminal felon indicted for stock fraud scheme with the Russian mafia thing, and the FL Group Icelandic hedge fund with massive ties to Putin being heavily invested in Trump Soho thing, and the Rex Tillerson/Exxon ties to Russia thing, and the Russian ambassador at Trump Tower sneaking in and out thing, and the Trump tried to roll back Russian sanctions the minute he got elected thing.
Other than that, you libtards got nothing!

And DD calls it a 'nothing burger'  :D

I have been getting into cooking lately. After my wife and I spent a week in Key West, I really began to have a better appreciation of Key Lime Pie. It has always been a favorite, but more so now.

I looked up several recipes, chose one and I adapted it for my own with a couple of modifications.

I call this Key Lime/Pineapple Pie. Try it. If you make one and you like it, let me know!

4 egg yolks
One 8 oz can of condensed sweetened milk
3/4 cup of juice (equal parts key lime and pineapple)
Graham Cracker crust (store bought or make your own)
Appr. 1 ˝ tbs Lime zest (finely flaked. Make sure that it is all green. The white part of the peel is bitter)

1 cup heavy mixing cream
1 tbsp sugar
Lime zest

Stir egg yolks into condensed milk until well blended. Add juice. Stir for a few minutes until it is thickened. (Option: add a splash of heavy cream, but not too much that the filling gets too thick). Stir in most of the lime zest, saving some for the topping.

Pour mixture into Graham Cracker crust. Put in preheated oven at 350 for 10 minutes. Set out to cool while preparing topping.

Blend heavy cream and the sugar until it starts to thicken and has stiff peaks. Spoon topping onto cooled pie. Optional: sprinkle the remaining lime zest on top.

If you like the filling to be less firm, use only 3 egg yolks and no added cream.

.... I am surprised that any Trump supporters were following NPR.  Don't know

I'd be surprised if the majority of them are literate

Meanwhile Trump lies everyday, yet you don't have a problem with that.

Latest polls:

Now just 37 percent of Americans say they approve of the job the president is doing in office, down three percentage points since last Thursday.

Fifty-seven percent say they disapprove of the job Trump is doing as president.

And no, that wasn't from CNN.
