1950Brutus - Study finds reasons Springfield Diocese Catholics have left the Church - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJou
I share many of the experiences described here by others – for me though the crossroad was when the church changed the definition of a “mortal sin”. With a stroke of the pen all of a sudden it became OK to eat meat on Friday and attending mass on Sat night fulfilled one’s obligation for Sunday. This still doesn’t make sense to me. A MORTAL SIN isn’t something that is open to a definition change – not…
pjohnf - Mayor Moore discusses Newcomb proposal - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Duh exactly how much are we getting in property taxes now on the lot, zero, zip, nada and that will remain the same if Duesterhaus gets his parking lot. Wasn't Duesterhaus a big supporter of the debacle of hydro power? Unfortunately in this day and age city's have to put up money to get private enterprises to invest in projects. I say let's move forward because the hydro supporters didn't…
1950Brutus - REBEL MEDIA: Re-embracing the Royals - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
AHHH how I envy you – to have such pleasant memories of a World Series. I, being a Cleveland fan, have no such memories although I hope to live long enough, and doing everything in my power to extend my life, to experience this. My efforts include precise instructions to my doctor to NOT pull the plug until Cleveland is victorious. Advances in science may be my best hope.
1950Brutus - Illinois governor leans on Obamas for support - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Why do the liberals continue to tout the Obama Doesn’t Care If It Is Affordable Act as a success. If memory serves me correctly – when this bill was being debated there were supposedly 40 million people without insurance. Now 8 million people have signed up it seems it is time to party. For us old people who have followed baseball for a long time this %age – 20 – is known as the MENDOZA line. Mario…

She was probably behind a car and started forward and ran into it. Ergo improper starting. Not one you see very often at all.

Strawman: Trey Gowdy Rocks!

3 months ago by Strawman

 

I have the same feeling I had Sunday afternoon.  USA is leading Portugal 2-1 in the World Cup---there are seconds remaining in the game. But, because it’s soccer, no one really knows how much time is left, but what the heck. The good guys are winning and it looks like they’ve made the final 16.  And then disaster.  Portugal ties the game on a perfect goal and………..it’s reality all over again.

The same thing would happen 24 hours later.

Monday night (that’s right Earl, prime time, must see TV)  South Carolina’s Trey Gowdy slapped the taste out of the mouth of IRS Commissioner and snark-master John Koskinen.  It was a thing of beauty.

The IRS, who up to those few moments Monday night, pretty much had been telling those participating at the Congressional hearings to suck on it, were dealt a set-back.  All be it, not a big one, but an in your face Mr. IRS, you’re not as smart as you think you are set-back.  And it was all done by the book and in the most professional manner possible given the circumstances.

The trouble the right will have with Gowdy handing Koskinen his ass, is that, save for a few us who enjoy a good beat down now and again, it will soon be forgotten.  Or Daryl Issa or John Boehner will sell us out behind closed doors.  Come to think of it, that’s probably happening right now.

But for the moment, Gowdy is my guy.  For a brief moment, the USA was leading the country of IRS-Obama 2-1.  So I guess I’ll have to live in the moment.

The good news here; Trey Gowdy is the point man on the upcoming Benghazi Special Committee.  The bad news; there’s only one of him.

And don’t bring Paul Ryan’s name up.  Ain’t even close……
