    They are hasting on to their end,
    who now deem themselves strong in their greatness.
    Ashamed am I to share in their dealings;
    to flickering fire again to transform me,
    fancy lureth my will:
    to burn and waste them who bound me erewhile,
    rather than blindly sink with the blind
    e’en were they of gods the most godlike
    not ill were it, meseems!

    The river children bewailing the stolen gold.

    give us the gold!

    Accursed nixies!

    Rhine Daughters
    O give us its glory again.

    Cease their clamorous taunts.

    (calling down toward the valley)
    Ye in the water! why wail ye to us?
    Hear what Wotan doth grant!
    Gleams no more on you maidens the gold,
    in the newborn godly splendor bask ye henceforth in bliss!

    Yeah, when I look at his face and her face that was exactly what I was thinking.

    That look also reminds me of a port visit to Pohang, ROK. Prudence and decency prevents me from going into much detail. But I was not there when it happened, I took no part, and I only learned about later on the ship it when the statute of limitations had run out.

  43. Not a single one of you brought up #HillarysTongue in the thread despite the fact that you can see the hole in in in this gif too, I mean better not bring up anything visceral and effective like ‘the lies and the Huma sessions are literally rotting her lying tongue out of her mouth’ or anything that might be winning in this election.

    Save Yourself (YouTube)

    I know your life is empty
    And you hate to face this world alone
    So you’re searching for an angel
    Someone who can make you whole

    She can not save you
    She can’t even save herself
    So just save yourself

    I know that you’ve been damaged
    Your soul has suffered such abuse
    But she is not your savior
    She is just as [edited] as you

    She can not save you
    She can’t even save herself
    So just save yourself

  49. Ronald Reagan not only contributed to democrats, and voted for democrats, he WAS a democrat, so I guess he couldn’t have been a republican.

    Sigh, this again? Reagan was not only a Republican but a conservative public intellectual for decades before he got the presidential nomination. Trump was donating to and supporting Democrats just a few years ago.
