As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    Parsing Bill

    Did anybody catch this.....


    This was first reported back in 2012, but it’s back in the news today....

    Jeffrey Epstein had a painting of Bill Clinton wearing a blue DRESS and red heels and lounging in the Oval Office inside his Manhattan mansion.


    Here’s the article

    It was hanging up there prominently — as soon as you walked in — in a room to the right,” a source told The Post. “Everybody who saw it laughed and smirked.”

    But the bizarre home decor didn’t stop there.

    It was reported in another article that Epstein, 66, also kept a mannequin hanging from the ceiling — dressed up in a wedding gown, the source said, noting how the doll was situated above a staircase. And A Vanity Fair article noted that Epstein decorated his entrance hall with 'row upon row of individually framed eyeballs… imported from England.'

    The piece dubbed “Parsing Bill” was painted and sold by a New York-based artist named Petrina Ryan-Kleid. Saatchi Art, an online art gallery, describes it as an “oil on canvas” with dimensions of 40 W x 40 H x 2 in. The painting inside Epstein’s home appears to be the same size, and sources told The Post it was also done with oil.

    Attempts to reach Ryan-Kleid were unsuccessful on Wednesday night. A relative, when reached by telephone, said he knew of the painting’s existence but was unaware of a connection to Epstein.


    The Clinton camp did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Lol!

    The whole painting. It wasn't a good likeness, and it wasn't funny enough to overcome that.
    Also, the left arm is all wrong, as is the whole left side of the dress. The perspective is off.

    In Boston, there's a Museum of Bad Art. It's actually pretty interesting - and I think this painting is an excellent candidate

    What message do you think he was trying to convey?
    That Hillary really is the one who "wears the pants"?

    Certainly not to the person depicted unless you can show that they posed for this.
    Why would him posing for it be damaging?

    And seriously, what is this emphasis on Clinton these days?
    He may have known Epstein, but there is much more linking Trump to this pervert.

    Displacement defense mechanism. Summers who ran Harvard had close relationship with Epstein. Harvard relief on Epstein. The left is working hard to implicate The Donald.

    What was Epsteinís demand? By making Bill visit Lolita Island 20 plus times to watch him in action?

    Important? Eh. Not so much.

    You wrote "it says a lot about the Clintons". If you don't know what the Clintons think of the painting, how can its existence in Epstein's crib say alot about them?

    They could hate it or love it, and either option would say completely different things about them.

    Tell us: what does the painting say about the Clintons, DeSanto?

    I think this thread is showing that when people have nothing sensible to believe they will believe nonsense.

    Applying Occam's principle "Is it likely?" can go a long way to rationalising certain information.
    Like believing its ok to rip babies from the womb? Like that you mean?

    I haven't heard whether this was something Clinton posed for or enjoyed. I don't really care either way, because it's just a weirdly funny / creepy painting.

    ps. maybe "fairness" isn't really playing a part in that evaluation.
