George Santos' name popped up again recently on another thread...

about McCarthy's failure to expel him as he needs his vote. It made me think of what Santos' musings will be once 2025 comes around.

About now he's probably thinking there's plenty of time but it's never too early to figure out the moves come mid-January '25 as he knows he's not getting reelected. His thoughts might be something like the following:

Feign running even though campaign funds are just about nil as that con has run its course — check.

Always have a bag packed — check.

Passport at the ready — check.

Airline tickets to country with no extradition treaty (Brazil is out as it's the first place they'll expect) — check.

Ride to the airport prescribed to avoid press— check.

Driver already secured, palm greased, pick-up point at secret Capitol exit agreed upon — check.

Slowly move clothes and other trip necessities out of apartment to office so landlord doesn't notice — check.

Figure out how to bullshit landlord on late Jan. rent...Dems holding up last check might work — check.

Clean out personal bank account and last dregs in campaign account — check.

Hmmmm? What else, let me think...?

If any state listens to dumb ass MTG and her talk of a national divorce...

we need to eject them from the union for being so stupid. And they will no longer get the federal money (from blue states) they get from the treasury...way more than they contribute. Not to mention all the military installations, post offices and other federal property within their borders they will lose.

And their citizens will not be able to drive or fly through blue states without going through the whole visa application process. Since they want to be pains in the ass, we can be pains in the ass too.

And your idea of petitioning Canada to annex us is not a bad idea. Our west coast blue states are contiguous...California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, which borders Canada. Same situation exists with the blue great lake stated of Michigan and Illinois. Then there are contiguous, blue north eastern states and eastern seaboard states (to include DC, itself.

The red traitor states don't have to go home but they won't be able to stay in DC. They can set up their own capitol like before. Richmond is available again I hear..

A gain I say let's eject the red traitors since they want to go so bad..

It was revived most recently in young African-American circles as the new slang word for...

being politically aware of societal racism (being awoke to it) and the recognition of the need to navigate around obstacles constantly placed it the path of Black people and other POCs/LGBTQ+. Thus, woke.

Magats eventually got wind of it and turned it into a pejorative to use against any program, issue, proposal, legislative bill, movement etc. that has empathy towards the less fortunate in society. As was said, a sly way to be racist without being blatant about it.

Does Carlson even know what he himself stands for?

If he hates trump so much, why does he propagandize for him every night on the FOX liar network?

Could it be that tanning his testicles has affected his critical thinking skills, if he ever had any?

I mean he's a rich, trust fund boy who's never had to worry anything, especially getting fired for anything he says on the air.

So who the eff is Carlson?

He has always been a stupid idiot who benefited from inheriting his father's wealth.

Also he stole millions from his late brother's estate when he died, and was thus always able to lawyer-up, sue and outlast business opponents/vendors he cheated in deals, but IMO he's shown signs of losing it mentally.

I lived in NY in the late '70s thru the '00s when he was younger and making spectacularly stupid financial moves, plus the attention-grabbing ones he did to stroke his ego/get women, but he also did some things that weren't stupid, like when he took on and quickly refurbished the Wollman Skating Rink in Central Park that the Koch Admin had bungled for years.

That got everyone's attention, and along with the Trump Tower building, it made him seem like someone who knew how to get things done.

The tearing down of the Bonwit Teller building, with its Art Deco frieze masterpiece, to build his gaudy tower was a disappointment to architecture observers though. The casino failings and other business fiascos were still to come, as were his grooming by the Russians, his political ambitions and the increasingly apparent mental acuity/sanity lapses of the 2010s to now.

Remember, his father also suffered mental decline in later years.

Attn homeowners and home buyers. Find out asap the age of the main water line...

as if it ruptures you are responsible for fixing it as homeowner's insurance doesn't cover it and the local water company's responsibility stops at the curb.

About 3 weeks ago I got a letter, on paper with red ink, that there was a continuous flow issue at my house. My bill went from around $50 a month to some $300 a month. The letter suggested it could be as little as a running toilet or a leaking faucet inside or outside not completely turned off.

That got my attention and I immediately checked every toilet and faucet inside and out. The only thing was one toilet tank had a leak on the bottom (a washer needed to be replaced) where I had put a pail until I could get my home warranty people to fix it. I. thought that was the leak so I turned off the water to that toilet and called the water company to see it that was the problem.

It wasn't, there was still continuous flow as I spoke to the water co. employee ...multiple gallons a day.

I had to hire a leak detection company and they found that the main water line had indeed ruptured and it was going to cost thousands to fix. I had to bite the bullet and get it done. The leader of the group gave me a bit of info on water main lines. They usually last about 20 years at best and my house is 18 years old. I was responsible.

THE ADVICE HE GAVE ME was it's best to get the main water line insurance when buying a house as it could save you multiple thousands of dollars if it breaks. We're talking up to 10k. It's mentioned in the reams of paper you have to check off and sign when buying but no one, not even your own RE agent mentions/stresses it.

It's a concern for tenant too if the landlord doesn't pay the water bill.

It certainly is business as usual as invading other countries...

is what they do — Hungary in 1956, Czoslovakia in 1968, Afghanistan in 1979, Cheznya in the late '90s, Georgia in 2006, eastern Ukraine in 2014 and western Ukraine last year, 2022.

My God, that's all they do, every decade just about like clockwork. They've already signaled their intent to "merge" with Belarus and they are also infiltrating and undermining Muldova's systems.

What monsters. Poland and the Baltic countries should be very worried as Alexandre Dugin, the deconstructionist Russian philosopher has been whispering in Putin's ear of a Russian empire from the Atlantic to Vladivostok.

Russia already spans 11 times zones but that's apparently not enough. What's funny is they expect to do all that with that third-rate army.

I absolutley believe Rep. Raskin. I just wish AG Garland would take action.

So many obvious crimes with no need to appoint special counsels...just indict already on the piles of stolen docs found at MAL, and the continued obstruction of justice refusal to return them.

That's low-hanging fruit.

IMO he hasn't proven he's up to the job. It's more than two years since J6, many obvious crimes, no indictments. Come on, at least pluck the low-hangers to show something is being done, then come back for more as evidence is developed.

Again, come on, trump led/encouraged AN 'EFFIN' TELEVISED ATTEMPTED COUP on the US government and none of the big wig republican ringleaders have been indicted more than two years later.
