Christmas Candles18“What Child Is This?” is a Christmas carol whose lyrics were written by William Chatterton Dix, in 1865. At the time of composing the carol, Dix worked as an insurance company manager and had been struck by a severe illness. While recovering, he underwent a spiritual renewal that led him to write several hymns, including lyrics to this carol that was subsequently set to the tune of “Greensleeves“, a traditional English folk song. Although it was written in England, the carol is more popular in the United States than in its country of origin today.

    This, fam, is why we can never, ever have good things.. And precisely how the media and perpetually auditioning, power-hungry, wishy-washy types like Rtd. Rear Admiral John Kirby (2015-2017 spokesperson for the State Department -John Kerry) ..

    Between Fredricka Whitfield and John Kirby, the deliberate stepping all over the message and giving a treasonous buffoon an out per usual, continues..

    (Video starts where their ridiculousness begins..)

    • Ametia says:

      HOT MESS. And the very mention of addressing 45 as “the president”


      • eliihass says:

        And how Mattis shouldn’t have released his resignation letter … how it was aggressive, ‘ham-fisted’ and ‘disrespectful’ to the treasonous buffoon..

        You couldn’t make this stuff up..

        And Fredricka asking who was more ‘empathetic’.. 🙄🤔

    • Ametia says:

      😆 but why would she get back in a car with an ABUSER? WTF

    • Ametia says:

      Don’t know back story with these 2, but I know one thing, if a man throws your shit to the curb, he’s likely throwing your ass around too. She’s been heavily abused, and is scared to the point of refusing to leave with another man literally & physically rescuing her.

      That’s so fucked up.

      • eliihass says:

        Exactly! Thank you..

        And the guy saw her being treated like a Queen by a man with an even better car…and he gets all possessive..

        This is the sort of guy that’ll kill you, chop you up and throw bits of you in an oil well if he even gets the slightest whiff that you might be planning to leave him …or after he leaves you, but finds out that you’re dating again – and the new guy crazy about you, and is so much wealthier, better looking, and all around infinitely better than him in every way..

      I thoroughly enjoyed this, SG.. 😂😂 Thanks for sharing..

  4. This is my youngest boy. It has taken years to grow his dreads. He’s the sweetest and most loving boy. He’s my heartbeat, my life. I wish a mofo would come towards him with a scissor…..

    My oldest boy’s dreads are to his waist. It’s so disturbing watching that bish cut off the kid’s locs. It’s stabs to the heart.

    “The explanation for all of this mayhem as described to me today by a close Trump ally: “He’s scared..He’s scared of Mueller. He’s scared of his base… He sees it all crumbling around him.”- @NicolleDWallace— Deadline White House (@DeadlineWH) December 21, 2018

  6. I’ma head out a little later on to do my last minute shopping for gifts and do some grocery shopping. What I don’t pick up today, my brother will pick it up on Sunday….like bananas, strawberries and ice to put in the coolers. I’ll start doing some cooking tomorrow.

    Need to do
    Come and get this money………..🎵🎤

    I’d say at the very least his ass should be fired and blacklisted so he is forced to look for another line of work.

  13. Liza says:

    Truth. Trump sits in his bubble and actually believes he is distracting folks from the hot mess of corruption that is his so called presidency.

    • Ametia says:

      THIS: so @realDonaldTrump can build a Hate Wall and distract from his failure, scandal, collusion.

      • eliihass says:

        For every huge discovery/exposé of his deep and endless corruption, treachery and Russia connection, he goes all faux-responsive to his maga idiots, by throwing them some stupid bone at tax payer expense… he believes it buys him loyalty and protection with his base..

        While bit player local puppeteers like Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Limbaugh etc. flex their muscles, have fun at his expense slyly jerking his chain from their vantage spots on FOX..

        It would all be comical if it weren’t all so destructively Orwellian – the Walmart edition..

      • Ametia says:

        The sheer ignorance with 45’s so called base, be fed as ready diet of toasted racist bullshit by Limpballs and that Coulter witch who rake in millions peddling hate.

        Losers, the lot of them, but yeah, keep thinking your whiteness makes you better than Juan & Tyrique.

    Why the F.T.C. Is Taking a New Look at Facebook Privacy

    After a yearlong string of news reports that have called Facebook’s data-sharing practices into question, federal regulators are taking a hard look at how the social media company handles the personal information of its users.

    It is not the first time Facebook has drawn government scrutiny. About seven years ago, after charges were leveled by the Federal Trade Commission, the company made an agreement with the agency to overhaul its privacy practices.

    Well, I looked at my rollover IRA this AM. I advise caution to all who might consider doing this if your IRA or 401k is invested in the market.

    Right now all earnings have been wiped out since 09-2017.

    • Ametia says:

      I feel you Liza. We hard-working, honest, ethically-sound Americans always get the shiv.

      It’s not until the 1% see the and feel the effects of incompetence & chaos from 45, they will circle the wagon and set his ass on fire. But a long as they are profiting…


    • Liza says:

      Ha ha. I wish I had neighbors as interesting as Ms. Benbow.

      As someone who has a history of playing her music kind of loud, I can relate to this although I never played it loud at 3:26 AM.

      In my current house, I’m on a corner and surrounded by a ravine full of trees on the other two sides, a nice sound barrier. If I end up in assisted living, I might have a problem.
