MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM TBP TO YOU

, ,

Before I enter the two day whirlwind of family and friends coming and going at the Quinn household, I wanted to post a Christmas greeting and thank you to all TBP readers, members, contributors, and commentors, who have contributed to this truth seeking effort. I read many other excellent blogs, but only TBP has the kind of intelligent, funny, and sometimes nasty commentary that is both entertaining and informative. I think the average IQ and social intelligence of the average TBP reader/commentor is far above what you will find among the unwashed masses. There are a few dolts among our members, and they know who they are (bb). I know you have taught me far more than I’ve taught others.

Personally this was an extremely heart breaking year for me and my family as we lost my father-in-law Ray Romano, my young niece Jen Romano, and my son’s best friend Tyler Rizol far too soon. These tragic deaths, along with other family medical issues, made this one of the saddest years of our lives. But life must go on. The entire Romano clan will gather at our house today and we’ll honor the memories of the patriarch and my niece. We’ll light three candles on the center island as a remembrance of those we’ve lost.

I’ve had plenty of issues with the site this year and had to switch server companies for the 3rd time. The technical side of running a website is not interesting to me. The site loading problems and attacks from outside parties (yes NSA- I mean you) almost convinced me to throw in the towel. But, it seems some patchwork done by a couple new vendors has fixed the issues. That, and paying ten times as much for my server as I did in previous years, has allowed people to actually log-on and read the site.

TBP will end up 2013 with over 5 million visitors. That’s not bad for a blog I do in my spare time, with most of the articles written on my laptop while I sit in bed watching Duck Dynasty (just kidding). Sometimes the daily grind of keeping the site interesting can wear me down. I’m particularly crotchety on those days. I really appreciate when the other great contributors post their insights. It takes the load off my shoulders. AWD, Stuck, Harry P, and the other regular contributors are all owed a round of applause for their effort.

Lastly, I’d like to thank all of the generous readers who have supported TBP with their kind donations. I would like to list everyone by name, but I think most want to be anonymous. I’ve kept every letter and envelope that has ever been sent to me. They are piled up next to my computer. That will make it much easier for DHS to track you down when they kick in my door and take me away to the FEMA blogger camp.

I hope the readers of TBP have learned something over the last four years. I consider my efforts to be a crusade on behalf of my three sons and their future unborn children. I try to stay focused on the big picture and not be distracted by the day to day minutia from the propaganda arm of the establishment. I think we’ve opened the eyes of some people. I think we are starting to turn the tide. I think we’re on the right side of history. A tipping point will be reached and I don’t think it is too far away. I’ll keep slogging away and seeking the truth. There isn’t much more I can do.

Thank you for keeping this place interesting. I hope you all have a joyous fun-filled Christmas. There will be plenty of time for doom in the new year. For now, just enjoy the embrace of your family and tell them you love them.

    I read “commentors” as “tormentors.” Your way works too though.

    Have a good vacation all.

    Fuck yall for forgetting me. (jk). Merry Christmas, (really it’s the feast of Sol Invictus) and a happy Nowruz to everyone. Even the jews among us.

    This has been a tumultuous year for me as well. I almost fucked everything and joined a hippie commune, then this french company that I’d never heard of contacted me through a head hunter and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse, so I quickly packed up my shit and moved 2,000 away to strange land called Texas.

    I share a large house here in a posh neighborhood with a divorced lady who has three boyfriends, neither of which knows anything about the other. For some reason she feels the need to tell me all about the strange, but interesting details of her personal life. She is a true Texan and has never lived north of Interstate 10.

    Ahura Mazda only knows what next year will bring…

    @ Stucky

    You’re right. We didn’t have Advent Calendars…

    But my son does. The missus makes sure to make that phone call back to the Fatherland to get that care package of chocolate and other stuff, every year..

    Nikolaustag is also celebrated in our household…

    And yeah, I miss Germany sometimes… I remember my last New Year there. I walked outside through the snow that New Year’s morning and it was bright and sunny and cloudless. Stuttgart just sparkled and then, like it was choreographed, every church bell in town started ringing at the same time…

    @ Stucky

    I remember salamanders!! From my grandfather!

    (Trust me, this links in with salamanders)

    My great grandfather, the one with the bookbinderies, well he retired and wanted to pass the business on to my grandfather. Gramps had no interest in running the company, so it fell to my great uncle Hans. Hans immediately ran the company into the ground, then sold it, then pissed the money away…

    Gramps, meanwhile, used to work covering the best books with leather (while he was working there). He was seriously talented. After he left the company, he went to work for a company that made high-end luggage out of exotic leathers. He was cross-trained as a cobbler, so he also used to repair our shoes when they became worn..

    Which is how I know about salamanders.

    By the way, I inherited all of gramps’ tools… all his leatherworking tools and bookbinding tools… I’ve dabbled with them, just to get a feel for them. Also have some books on shoe and boot making… everything from “how to stitch” to making your own lasts and your own tools… which is doubly weird since the Missus? Her dad is a shoemaker back in Stuttgart…

    Wheels within wheels… I’m starting to think everything is connected in some weird way, but I haven’t seen the pattern yet…

    I came across this site in October and have visited it everyday since. Instinctually, I had already turned against the Establishment in the summer of 2013 but couldn’t exactly pinpoint why I no longer was proud to be an American. All I knew was that 9-11 was a false flag and our senseless wars in the Middle East were only benefitting the war profiteers. After coming to this site, the Establishment’s corruption all fit together like a complex puzzle, yet made sense.

    This site is definitely the shit and I think historians will look back at the alternative media during this era and commend the true patriots for speaking out against the MSM and the ruling class.

    Swaddled in Baby Gap, little Jesus appears to be crying.

    Mary tries to gently rock him in her hands, certainly a great moment to remind viewers that you are in good hands with Allstate.

    The carpenter Joseph is trying to protect Mary and Jesus, he could certainly use the system he just won from our sponsor ADT.

    The cow you see behind them is brought to you by ConAgra, the donkey by Halliburton.

    The angels on high in the sky, magnificent 3D computer generated imagery, are from Pixar.

    There were reports of shepherds in the area but ICE agents stopped and frisked them and are now herding them to the Fox Newsroom.

    CNN experts are talking about the shepherds and talking about the shepherds and talking about the shepherds and talking about the shepherds ….

    MSNBC libtards are foaming at the mouth over mixing religion with … well, religion.

    Democrats have brought loads of free shit … frankincense, gold, myrrh, and Baby Jeebus’ weight in Food Stamps.

    Republicans are giving the gift of Big Cutbacks … a shredder to cut up the food stamps …. insisting that Mary and Joseph become more self reliant.

    Goldman Sachs promises a Big Donation so that Mary and Joe’s next baby will be born in better circumstances ….. but then retracts the promise when they realize Jeebus will eventually condemn them to everlasting hell.

    Amerikan drones bomb the nearby fields killing Three Wise Kings … just for the helluvit. Amerika apologizes and promises to look into it. 2,000 years later America is still droning the shit out of the area.

    Benjamin Netanyajoo’s great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather, Herod, tries to fuck-up Christianity by killing Jeebus. He fails. 2,000 years later, Christian America is fucked up by Netanyajoo.

    Walmart sets up a booth and advertises mangers at 50% discount.

    Mary and Joseph weep.

    Zara, much like kids, it’s all in how ya raise ‘em! Our dogs have never begged because nothing they ever eat comes from our plates or dinner table. People food is not good for dogs (or people) and they are NEVER conditioned to expect anything we are eating because they NEVER receive anything we eat. Our dogs have always been happy to go out and play or even take a nap when we eat.

    Train your dogs correctly and they will fantastically behaved companions. Let them rule the roost and they will train their owners. Dogs are hierarchical pack animals. They will gladly assume dominance if you allow it.

    Sounds like your friends Cocker was never trained correctly. I can make any breed of dog behave as you describe with almost no effort. It takes a bit of effort, patience and a lot of consistency to train a dog properly. Just like kids!

Here, it is considered inconsiderate if I do nothing but sit on my ass and be served. I think I could get used to this (but it would take awhile for me to get over the guilt). The ironic part is that this chick grew up being catered by servants all of her life. She still has one today. I doubt that woman has ever touched a vacuum cleaner in her life.

    Okay, I should probably clarify my living situation. I came out here from Oregon to work for a foreign company that didn’t know me and I didn’t know them. I did it because they wanted me enough to pay me a lot. However I didn’t want to commit to this place since I knew that if it didnt work out for whatever reason, there was no way in hell that I would be staying here. I knew nobody here and had never been here before.

    So, I didn’t move my shit out here (although it would have been completely paid for). Instead I placed an ad in craigslist. I said a bit about who I am and what my situation is. I said I wanted a houseshare and that I wanted my own private space as well as complete run of the house. I said that I expected this to last for a year or so until I got acclimated. I also said that money wasn’t an object of concern. I had two quality responses and chose this one (It wasn’t an easy decision). I figured there were probably upscale couples or singles who were struggling to maintain their lifestyles and would be willing to compromise them if it meant sharing their abode with a quiet, middle aged, educated person who has a good job. Turns out I was right. I could easily stay here for quite awhile…perhaps even until SHTF.

    Get out of the kitchen does not mean go sit on the sofa and drink beer.

    Merry Christmas to you all. I feel like you are friends as well as comrades in the ongoing cultural, political and economic wars. I predict a lot of people are going to come over to our side in 2014, and not because things will be getting rosier. Thanks Mr. Quinn for the hard work you do, and all the best to you.

    There is a 21 year old non-relative sleeping on my couch next to the Christmas tree. Got to bed at 1:45 am. The beer held out. The cats had their own Christmas feast as they tore open the plastic bag with french bread inside and went to town while we were asleep. I’m guessing Avalon is going to regret doing shots with her son and his friends at midnight. I’ve got four lawn bags filled with bottles, cans, and general debris.

    Merry Christmas to all.

    Glad to hear you had a good time. Reminds me of the Christmas eve parties my parents for many years. We would often be cleaning up until 3 to 4 in the morning. My wife actually cried this morning she was so happy with our kids home just opening gifts and eating bacon. May you have a wonderful and blessed day.
    Bob.

    It’s 10:00 am and everyone is still asleep. It’s not like the old days with the kids waking up at 6:00 am and giddy with excitement about what Santa left them. The house is back in order and we’re on to my sister’s in a few hours – if the boys ever get up.

    Sounds like you had a good time. Down here in Redneck country, Christmas isn’t complete without a fist fight and/or the police being called (same for weddings).

    Clark Sr.: “In years to come, you’ll want your children and your family to remember all the love you gave us, and how hard you tried to make the perfect Christmas.”
    Clark: “I just…”
    Clark Sr.: “You just cocked it up. It’s okay, it happens.”
    Clark: “All our holidays were such a mess.”
    Clark Sr.: “Oh yeah.”
    Clark: “How did you get through it?”
    Clark Sr.: “I had a lot of help from Jack Daniels.”

    You’ve touched many lives and awakened many. To me, you and your site are a modern version of Thomas Paine and Common Sense. Thank you. I feel as though I would lose touch with what’s REALLY happening in the world without your well written, insightful articles. Not to mention the subsequent contributions of your retinue of faithful shit throwing monkeys, of which I am proud to say I am one.

    in the USA, a wedding marks the end of the unofficial honeymoon called ‘dating’ and Christmas day marks the end of Christmas. in Latin America, we are just getting started, there’s after Christmas shopping to be done, there are tamales, piñatas, buñuelos, champurrado, menudo to be made for new year’s and the rosca de reyes for the sixth of January – the day of the 3 wise men bearing gifts for kids.
