Out of the Blue

Merry Christmas! We're having one of those white Christmases that Der Bingle used to croon about, as a tasteful blanket of snow fell on the area overnight, which is cool (if not downright frosty). Here's hoping it's equally scenic, if not seasonal, where you are. I followed though on my plan to make chili yesterday with a different recipe to celebrate, and I am pleased with the turnout. In spite of the recipe's notation that this is Texas-style, it calls for tomatoes, which are often considered not authentically Texas, and are not usually part of my chili. On the other hand, I was born and raised in Brooklyn, so in spite of my incredible taste in cowboy boots, I'm probably not one to judge such matters. Anyway, my normal recipe results in meat that's falling apart, and I wanted an outcome that was more like solid meat in a broth (like a competition chili), and this one delivered. I followed it to the letter as a first time, but in the future I will probably add more cumin and tweak a couple of other things.

Thanks for working on Christmas Blue.

Merry Christmas. Now remember to take a nap after eating turkey so you can have a long productive night gaming!

Happy Yule! I'm going the prime rib route tonight. I generally eat turkey once a week anyway - instead of chicken. So it's not really a holiday food for me, where prime rib is. And yeah, we got dumped on last night as well. Der Bingle would be pleased.

Merry Christmas! 12c grey and damp here in southern England, so pretty standard for 8 months of the year!

Merry Christmas all.

We also have snow here in S.E. Washington State. I moved into a new house this summer that's situated on a corner lot so I've got a lot of sidewalk to shovel. So I go outside and start shoveling and look up to see a guy with a snowblower plowing my way who proceeds to clear off my walk and driveway. Turns out it's the Chief of Police!

Well, it's not really that strange, he does live across the street from me.

It wasn't just nice to get dug out, it was also nice to see a snowblower being used close up because I ordered one last week and hope to pick it up from Sears soon but I have absolutely no experience using one.

Exactly the response one would expect from a Trump supporter. And on Xmas at that. Not even God could come with a more perfect example of what pieces of shit they all are.

And exactly the response I'd expect from Blue. Appease the monsters, Blue. We all know how that worked out for Neville Chamberlin. Appeasement only makes the aggressor stronger. Fuck them if they can't take a joke. In fact, fuck them if they can.

LOL, that is literally the only guy I've got blocked. Good to know he still isn't posting anything of interest.

But Blue has to play to a larger audience, so I get the desire to stay non-confrontational.

Also, what Cutter said, although I may not have phrased it in quite that way or with yet another Hitler reference.

It isn't funny, cute or anything other then bigoted hate to write something like that. Did you girls know that 22% of the murderers in prison are non-citizens? Did you? Do you even care? If I came across as mean and harsh that was my absolute intention. This President is doing for this country great and amazing things. Quit getting your news from the trash. Blue you are forgiven and removing the link was the right thing to do.

Time to man up Blue. Your persistent crying is old and feminine. If you didn't want more attention for yourself you would have just wrote it and kept it to yourself. Let everyone move on. I have loved all my dogs as much as you loved Hudson but I didn't milk it for attention when they died

BUFFALO, NY—A Merry Christmas was for millions put in potential jeopardy in the wee hours of this morning when, according to reports, one Kristopher Kringle was stopped at the American border on the orders of President-elect of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Trump cited numerous issues with Kringle's paperwork—not the least of which was a wide disparity in listed names, which included Saint Nicholas, Santa Claus, Kris Kringle, and Father Christmas.

"It's unbelievable," said Trump. "This guy also had, you know, some foreign-sounding ones on there, there was Babbo Natale, Sinterklaas, and Père Noël—at a certain point it's like, okay folks, enough is enough, I mean where is this guy from, you know? Which is exactly what we plan to find out, and I truly mean this, I've got to tell you."

Trump is quick to assure doubters that the man's place of origin is not the only reason for the red tape. "He dresses in a pretty wacky way," Trump explained. "I don't know if you've seen the pictures, you know, the press has been putting out a lot of false pictures, drawings, not the real guy, you know, it's very dishonest, the media."

"And the giving!" Trump continued, suddenly as exasperated as this reporter has ever heard him. "My god with the giving! You wouldn't believe how this guy—and let me just say, you know, I am a very giving guy. I'm a really great guy and I give a lot, anyone will tell you, believe me. I give and this guy though, it's on a whole other level, and you really do have to wonder what he's after. Some people are generous the whole year round, and I would have to include, again, myself in this, as well as my close friend Jon Voight. But you have to be suspicious when a guy suddenly goes nuts with it all at once, all in December. He reminds me of Crooked Hillary trying to buy up friends on Election Day. It didn't work for her and it's not going to work for him."

"Also this Prancer character, you know, and I'm a very accepting guy. I'm usually a very accepting guy but—and that's all I'll say," added Trump.

At press time, Kringle had completely disappeared, leaving no trace – a report Trump denied, saying, "We got it, believe me, this is something I have completely under control, there is no way this guy will outsmart me, I'm actually very smart."

the cause of free speech is far far more important than appeasing the panties of the people who support the worst president in our history. unless it incites violence, let it stand blue. self censorship is the first step down the road of the nazi dictatorship this idiot wants. the freedom of the founding fathers is the freedom to choose our sources, not silence them.
