No More Dates For Charles?

Okay, so we noticed that Little Green Footballs’ popularity DOUBLED in a mere 90 days according to Alexa Blog Stats. Yeah, that’s not unusual, considering that LGF has been in a death spiral for a decade or so. No, not unusual at all.

Perhaps somebody’s been messing with the hit counter again, eh, Charles?

To be fair, maybe the statistical goose is due to Johnson’s coverage of the “INQUISITION” that began Tuesday,13 November and continued on Friday,15 November 2019, and that everyone in the world wanted to get Charles Johnson’s insightful opinion. Yeah, sure they did.

We also noticed that the LGF posts no longer have dates, i.e., the day and month of the posting. Instead, the posts are listed as “1 day ago,” “2 days ago,” “456 days ago,”etc.

Why would Charles Johnson do that? Pheew.

    Funny thread. 😆

    Still can’t get my head around the concept of a bunch of left-leaning politicians sending a man to jail for lying.

  4. Octopus says:

    Thanks for the anniversary wishes in the last thread! Here’s to another 35..,but then that’s it! 😄

    Oh, and George says, “Hey.”

    • rightymouse says:

      Hope you had a great day! Hubby & I tend to forget our anniversary date because we’ve been married since 1865.

      • Octopus says:

        Ah, 1865. I remember it well. That’s when the missus and I first had to learn how to make-do without our slaves. Such a hardship it seemed, with the yardwork, cooking, cleaning and whatnot. Still, we persisted.

        • rightymouse says:

          I remember our early days too. Seems like yesterday when I was pregnant with son and cleaning bathrooms on the weekend that were trashed by the male units who couldn’t figure out how to aim properly and the daughter unit who loved to experiment with toilet paper.

          • Octopus says:

            Bathroom-cleaning is one of the items on a lot of marrieds’ lists of Unfair Things. We ended up taking turns, and she only has to remind me a few times when it’s time for me to get busy. Once I get going, I’m a dynamo — she says I do a better job than she does.

            Other than that, I’m Mr. Outside, and she handles the inside stuff. So, I get dog duty (doody), leaves, grass and whatever. She does the vacuuming and dusting, and moves the furniture so I walk into it in the dark. I do a lot of the laundry, but she puts it away. We both cook. I guess it’s working. 😃

    • Abu Has a Food Tester 🤮 says:

      You’ve limited your marriage-thing to 70 years but have you considered Mrs. Wright has recipes to prevent that? After all, she’s still in her prime.

      • Octopus says:

        I watch a lot of Dateline, Abu. I keep a sharp eye on her moods. Recently, we let a term-life insurance policy lapse, because we don’t need the massive influx of cash with the kids all raised and self-sufficient. I might be worth more alive than dead now. PHEW!!

        • rightymouse says:

          No way hubby is allowed to cancel his life insurance policy. He has a hefty one in case he goes first since he’s the major breadwinner. Especially now that I’m ‘retired’.

    I’m going to guess ‘buying followers’ for $1,000, Bunk. Do I get a cookie? 😆

    • Bunk X says:

      A lot of the hits are probably from search engines hunting for #fuckface.

        That’s it! 😂

          #rumpswab is another popular search term.

        • rightymouse says:

          F-face was my choice endearment when referring to the asshole my step-daughter married. Fortunately, they divorced before he could do much damage – the kids seem to have adjusted just fine. Daughter lives in Thailand now with the two kids and f-face is state-side & he remarried shortly after the divorce.

    Can it be more rich? A rich senator defending a mega rich celeb? Who sold her rights before she was rich and apparently needed the money from someone who was already rich and took a chance on her. And a former bartender attacking private equity firms claiming they destroy jobs. She doesn’t understand that many jobs are saved by leveraged buyouts despite the fact that the goal is to turn around and sell the business. They take on a lot of risk for a potential reward and in many cases they can save the jobs. They can also lose their asses . They don’t just go in and fire everyone because who would then buy a business where everyone was fired? This is what happens when dimwit socialists try to screw with capitalism The statistic I heard this morning on Varney is something on the order of 26 million jobs created due to private equity actions not 1 million destroyed like dimwit AOC says. She clearly is only repeating what the socialists who control her are telling her because she doesn’t know anything at all. Bernie and the

    I had to leave this in because it’s funny – it’s me trying to dictate the word ilk to the artificial dumbth software – Oak elk elk from fuck me what the hell fuck – it actually suggested fuck and never guessed ilk. Maybe we shouldn’t have them driving our cars and trucks! I am finding artificial intelligence is actually dumb as a rock. At this point we’ve only invented artificial stupid. Anyhoo….

    Bernie and AOC’s handlers and their ilk want to take over all business, destroying capitalism and entrepreneurialism because who would take risk with no control? It’s already been tried in Europe and S. America and they inevitably come crawling back to capitalism light because they’re too proud to admit that defining outcomes fails and only defining opportunities works and creates wealth. So there’s no reason to try it here – it’s already been proven to not work which is why China steals from us and lies about their supposed economic growth.

  7. Koko says:

    Yeah I know I just bashed AI. But….

  8. Koko says:

    Wow the swamp is so weird and antithetical to what the founders intended. I no longer think she’s a Trojan horse Muslim but instead just a crook and cock hound who wants to pose as a “ Public servant” to fund her running around rich bitch lifestyle. She apologizes for Islamists so they don’t come and chop her head off for being what they would term clearly a whore. It’s sad that foreigners think this is what America is about because they see so many of us acting like that.

      I know why I wouldn’t be interested in it. Because Charlie’s Angels was a cheesy 70s style show showcasing three hot chicks with classic horrible LA studio soundtrack. They didn’t have a clear strong lead on the show. You had pudgy Bosley, The Big Rich Guy you never saw and three hot chicks and none of them are that great of actresses. And the producers wanted to just show ass and get money and not develop strong characters. Even in my teens I wasn’t going to watch an entire hour show just to see these chicks jog around in their tight hip huggers. Maybe it did inspire some impressionable girls that they can be pretty and be the tough chick who solves the murder and brings down the big scary bad guy. In contrast Rockford Files had Rockford. A Super strong lead character and experienced actor. And it featured strong female characters (attorneys, cops, journalists ) that were often bailing his ass out of tough situations. And it had a perspective of gritty realism of an independent investigator just trying to make payments on his trailer and his Camaro while solving crimes and fighting corruption. There was no rich guy backing Rockford. Rocky had his back and he wasn’t sure who else had his back.

      • Koko says:

        I’m stating the obvious. But I wouldn’t be ME if I weren’t stating the obvious! You all will miss me when I’m dead. 😜

        The theme music for Rockford was killer. Great intro, West Coast country rock with synth and harmonica. Kind of a funky country syncopated rock sound. Rock guitar and chicka chicka maracas or cabasas. Not sure which. And when they do bring in brass it’s majestic horns near the end. They occasionally get things right out there in weirdo land.

I’m working on the subtle wording, which will go unnoticed by the more florid-faces libturds, awash in their moral superiority.

  25. Koko says:

    Can you imagine how many pissed off Days Of Our Lives fans are cursing NBC right now? 😆.

      • Koko says:

        I get that because yeah it’s a crap soap opera show. But it started in 1965 and my own mom used to stand in front of it on TV every day while ironing every piece of fabric in the house. I was just thinking there have to be people who tuned in saying where’s my damn story? They’re still out there. They’re not on Roku or Amazon fire stick although they might have one in a box that someone gave them for Christmas. Because that’s what happened to me. I just used the cable equipment until about two years ago and then finally found out about these other great options . I bought a Roku 3 then my wife gave me an Amazon fire stick which I thought was redundant. Until I actually installed it about a year later after receiving it, realizing it includes YouTube which the Roku doesn’t have. So now I have everything on an Amazon fire stick which cost about 70 bucks and the remote works 10 times better than the cable company’s garbage remote which has a range of about 3 feet. So it’s best to lay down on the floor in front of the DVR if you want to change channels. It proves NBC doesn’t even care about their own loyal viewers. And are risking viewers checking out other options because they’re so desperate to promote this comedy show impeachment lie pretending it’s Watergate.

    The story of course is worthless. The doctor worked for Obama and clearly hates Trump. And I’m sure has never examined Trump. Is commenting on a CNN sucks show with flat-chested Erin Burnett. Recall she left CNBC for CNN sucks where she was a cute daughterly darling. Only to find out you don’t get a prime spot on CNN sucks unless you’re full on gay or related to a Demoncrap dynasty. Oh and bodybuild to please the gay viewership. And frankly the article didn’t even say what’s in this headline.

    Thanks Matt!

  30. Octopus says:

    This is too much truth. 😒

    • Koko says:

      Yes the Fake News testimony today reveals that they felt President Trump was interfering with their plans for the Ukraine. Their idea during the Obama administration of addressing corruption in the Ukraine was to simply let the vice president and his son engage in it and make an gotten bundle. Did they whistleblow then? Fuck no. And they were so concerned about Russian aggression that they didn’t secure any funding for their defense. That didn’t happen until Trump. Vindman was a clown putting on his uniform and his bestist Jim Comey boy scout “doing my duty” act. He was known for being aggressively, inappropriately, unprofessionally, and virulently liberal progressive in his job. He’s a traitor.

  31. Koko says:

    The Volker testimony lost me when he claimed he’s known Biden 24 years and he’s always known him to be an honorable man. Gosh I remember him being a dimwitted lying bullshitter his whole life. For crying out loud he stole a British guy’s speech including personal details not true to him! His dishonesty is exceeded only by his laziness. He claimed he graduated at the top of his class when it was something like 79 out of 86. Then pouted when the press looked it up and reported that he’s a liar.

    Volker’s a lying Trump hater tool who probably lets Biden feel up his wife. And probably gets kick back payments from Hunter.

  32. Koko says:

    There’s so much blatant lying. Both Schiff and Vindman claim to not know who the whistleblower is. But Sciff cautioned Vindman to not reveal him. Leaving Devin Nunez scratching his head. Quite the comedy.

      Hey didn’t these English people invent iambic pentameter? Because I think they broke several of those rules in this song alone much less the rest of their songs.

Or is that stating the obvious about stating the obvious. See what I did there?

        Seems everyone turned on Palin, just about. Even her hubby. I still love her, though.

        • rightymouse says:

          I still think she’s wonderful too and people like McCain and Sullivan can kiss my butt. As for the transgender issue, a lot of gays like Sullivan are definitely not happy that their victim status is being sidelined.

    Well this is the nail in the coffin. It’s clear Trump used special dog whistle language to convey a bribery deal . The very fact that there’s no evidence of bribery proves there was bribery .

    Impeachment article 1 right there.

    Impeachment article 2 – Trump made fun of a 1024th % American Indian. Dat’s definitely Peachable.

    Impeachment article 3 – Trump appointed a rapist to the supreme court. Who’s guilt was proven by a person who couldn’t remember what year anything happened, where anything happened or who was at a gathering which might not have been a gathering. Or how they got there or how they come home. And no one can corroborate it or ever saw said perpetrator any where near her ever. Further proof – she’s a scientifical person WITH GLASSES and remodeled her house because of it and got a tax break. Also gang rapes and somebody had their dick out something something.

    The Beatles references above got me listening to some of the band’s songs, and then this song showed up. What a great tribute to a very good friend!

    Lennon, obviously, was a complicated and difficult person. So is Elton John. They really hit it off when they hung out in LA during Lennon’s estrangement from Yoko, where he basically partied for two years before coming crawling home in shame and gratitude. Elton spilled a lot of beans about Lennon over the years that didn’t exactly endear him to Yoko, btw — said the former-Beatle was very happy and totally enjoying his “lost weekend” in LA, instead of being the sad, bitter mess the media and Yoko’s people were making him out to be. The reasons he came home were about his son Sean, and finally getting tired of being hungover and strung-out all the time. He got it out of his system, but it took a long time.

    Another bag of beans Elton spilled was about how the Lennons’ apartments in the Dakota (they had several large ones), far from being the austere, white-painted minimalist places that Yoko and John liked to show photographers and pretend was their lifestyle, were actually packed full of priceless works of art, odd furniture and gewgaws from around the world, and so crowded with stuff that it was close to looking like a hoarder’s home. They went on legendary buying sprees, long before Michael Jackson was mocked for doing so. They never let the media see this side of their personalities.

        • Koko says:

          Ha! I like old Al. He even once referred to his own father who was a failed politician but a rich man. Sr. Gore said sometimes you just have to go walk in the tall weeds. Which is a reference to go make a ton of money with all of your connections and forget politics. Which is exactly what he did and what Al has done. Namely made a fortune off a scam using his government connections and lives large in big houses, rides around in private jets and big cars, chases girls. I think he harbors some vindiction towards the left idiots who couldn’t get steal an election for him. And now sardonically exacts his revenge making money off of their feckless mindless credulity about “Climate change” LOL. Laughing his way to the bank and sniggering at them.

    Jim Jordan just reamed their closing witness Holmes who had testified that he had overheard one side of a conversation which implicates the president in quid pro quo. And he said was so concerned that he told numerous people including his family members and his boss. Except his boss is Taylor, their first star witness, had already testified and never mentioned this bombastic damning conversation. Although he did testify to 13 other conversations all of them referencing pure hearsay and this Holmes guy starts to get one of those creepy Strzok smirk looks on his. Because he knows he’s caught in a huge lie and can only save personal face by smirking and acting superior.

    Their latest thing on MSNBC and black haired Chris Matthews on Fox News is John Bolton is going to be the big savior for impeachment . Which is going to be comical because first off, when has the left ever said ANYTHING NICE about John Bolton? And secondly wait till Trump tweets that Bolton is a disgruntled former employee. Who constantly counseled to go to war and attack other countries and get Americans killed. And acted like a baby when Trump wouldn’t listen to his neocon world view. Which is why he got fired.

  53. Koko says:

    I used to feel elated when I would see these demonstrations of defiance . But I remember what happened a few years ago when the paid thugs of the Iranian Mullahs murdered a beautiful girl who was I believe an innocent music student in the street. She was not even political but was just observing the demonstrations. Shot her through the heart and must’ve hit the trachea as well so she bled out shockingly through her face. It was captured on multiple cell phones which you can still look at today by googling “Neda death“ and clicking images. But I don’t recommend it. I won’t post it here because it’s horrific. You literally can see her die in the series of pics – painful for any parent esp of daughters. This is what they do in Iran, N. Korea, China, Venezuela. What happens when left wing socialist and communist countries are desperate to crush the freedom of their people. And to kill their spirit. I bet they assassinated the shooter too for doing it in broad daylight where there were cell phone cameras. And causing an optics PR nightmare for the shit headed Mullahs. China is about ready to pull that trigger in Hong Kong.

    “We know a lot of people have died, but it is so hard to see a woman, so young and innocent, die like this,” a 41-year-old who gave his name as Alireza said Monday.

    Women were particular targets after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad began to strictly enforce previously loosened restrictions. Thousands of women were arrested or intimidated because they did not adhere precisely to Islamic dress code on the streets.

    Mir Hussein Moussavi, the leading opposition candidate, campaigned along with his wife, Zahra Rahnavard, and other prominent Iranian women rallied to his side as he promised to improve the status of women.

    A woman called Hana posted a comment on Mr. Karroubi’s Web site: “I am alive but my sister was killed. She wanted the wind to blow into her hair; she wanted to be free; she wanted to hold her head high up and say: I am Iranian. My sister died because there is no life left; my sister died because there is no end to tyranny.”
