newsmax. wow. just wow, lord god king bufuu of all wows

i catch snippets as i channel surf and it's a blown on fuel misinformation un-American talking head big club of treason weasels!

i heard one guy make that case that "nazi" is short for "national socialism", therefore any progressive liberal democratic socialist is comparable to Hitler, Goebbels, Goring (my favorite nazi) Himmler, and Josef Mengele, to name but a few.

Positively infuriating that we have so many morbidly wealthy TRAITORS donating millions of rubles to put such a network on the air.

With this sort of thing in main stream media, no wonder we all hate each other!

good

now try to get him to finger the leader of the insurrection. But, if said ringleader is above the law, don't bother, you'll just be pissing up a rope. It's against the law to hold white collar criminals accountable, even if they attempted to violently overthrow the United States Government.

i'm a long time snl fan

saw the nat lampoon production of lemmings before snl, at stony brook before the show was on. john belushi. chevy chase and jane curtin were all part of the cast. current show i find wonderful. if the sketches fall flat, the actors, sets and costumes cover for a few obtuse plot lines. the colin jost michael che news bits are delightful. truly funny people.

and snl has been there from high school to retirement. a constant of counter culture humor my entire life. it helped to enjoy my decade older sister's mad magazines from the late fifties. mad to national lampoon to snl.

Kenan Thompson has been on from 2003 to present and he's adorable and talented. 20 year run so far where most performers last 2 to 5 years.

the list above is jam packed with the best comedy performers our country has to offer.

they had my hero frank zappa on twice and loren michaels banned him for life because he broke character too much in his second appearance. (frank was repelled by the open drug use during rehersal week and gave up when his ideas were ignored.) he was both host and musical guest once, which did not happen often. john belushi did a cold open where the nbc execs scientifically determined that zappa was what American's wanted for host. they even hosted musical guest captain beefheart, zappa's high school R&B record collector buddy.

all members of frank zappa's all girl group

The Girls together outrageously. (The GTO's)

She was soon being profiled alongside other so-called groupies Pamela Des Barres, Judith Peters (“Miss Mercy”) and Christine Frka (“Miss Christine”) in Rolling Stone."

from the late 60's, most resided in Zappa's first house in the Hollywood Hills, The "Log Cabin" once owned perhaps by Tom Mix. He moved to another home on Woodrow Wilson Drive, where he lived until his death around 1993. Subsequently sold to Lady Gaga a few decades later, which she flipped for a profit.

About 90-percent

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland.
