continuing the music discussion from the last thread, last night, our music system, which has a mind of its own played a lot from Bill Frisell's "Beautiful Dreamer" album. Nice to listen to as we drank and dined with my cousin and his wife.

Turkey in the wry.

Money quote from Al D'Amato:

“Inside the convention it’s going to go all Trump’s way. I think it’s rather pathetic for those who can’t get over their loss. The one guy, Romney, who didn’t have the cojones to run, should be ashamed of himself," he said. "He did nothing but try to scuttle Trump from the beginning. He’s like a spoiled little kid … I didn’t know he was a jealous, malevolent person underneath all that guile."

James D.

Al D'Amato! God, I miss him in the Senate.

Captain Hate

Why does Mutt Rombley have any influence in the GOP? He's never been popular with large amounts of the base and we dutifully rallied around him four years ago only to have him run a milquetoast campaign and fulfill all the low expectations that non country clubbers had. That should have been the end of his malignant influence but he sticks around like a persistent case of jock itch, propped up by the same dickweeds that inflicted him on us all along. ENOUGH!

Miss Marple 2

Agree, Captain Hate & James D.

That's why I posted that article. Al has a great way of cutting to the chase, and he speaks for me.

I thought Romney at least had character, but now I see it was a charade for the votes. He truly is a petty, vindictive individual.

An interesting, and unfortunate, kerfuffle in the Manhattan Jewish community re Trump. Ivanka asked her rabbi, a very prominent rabbi on the upper east side, to give the invocation at the Republican convention. He agreed to do so.

Unfortunately, when my name appeared on a list of speakers at the convention, without the context of the invocation I had been invited to present, the whole matter turned from rabbinic to political, something which was never intended. Like my father before me, I have never been involved in politics. Politics divides people.

Evidently his name appearing as a speaker upset some in the community, so he decided to withdraw. I can understand and respect that, and if it was Trump's people who listed him as a speaker that was a mistake. But for all I know it was the NY Times or someone trying to sabotage the event.

"his name appearing as a speaker upset some in the community"

Seems to me withdrawing is more apparently political than speaking would have been.

If it was simply oversight wouldn't a correction have been good enough?

Generally the left has been rather successful impugning opponent motives as "politics" or divisive or greed.

Jack is Back! (As Mr. Fixit)

The couple arrested in Nice are the ones with the weapons that Bouhlel texted asking them to bring him more.

No city in France has supplied as many Syrian ISIL recruits than Nice.

Oops.

If they have nabbed 6 or 7 other moderate but mildly cranky muslims helping him, is it just possible that, gulp, terrorism and orthodox islam go hand in hand?

The Assassins (Hashasheem) were under the employ of the Old Man of the Mountain. Doped up on his bidding, they would instantly leap to their deaths from the cliffs overlooking his hideout.

This was during the Crusades, so I assume they were Muslims.

Captain Hate

Yes, calling him Fat Phil is just force of habit. I guess I should shift to Lefty like I changed with the Golden Bear but that was a more deliberate transformation. Plus you GD lefties are already annoying enough.

Though his world may be not far from the one my (born libertarian) kid who lives in DC inhabits. Despite his nature and smarts, he's living in a bubble. Was initially one of those appalled youngish #NeverTrumpers--
I'm thinking he's smart enough to come around if I don't push him.

He wasn't here five hours yesterday before I had to shut him down re: DT by asking exactly which pontificator he reads called Trump's getting the delegates to be nominated, and why he thinks anything they are saying now is any more in touch with reality than what they said before?

jimmyk

If it was simply oversight wouldn't a correction have been good enough?

Yeah, I suspect it was one of two things: Either it was Trump's people who listed him as a speaker, and he got annoyed at having then to deal with the flak and to explain himself; or some wealthy anti-Trumpers in his synagogue threatened withdrawal of financial support. Or perhaps both.

"a man was dressed in black with his face covered shooting indiscriminately when he walked out between a convenience store and car wash across from Hammond Air Plaza."

False 911 call to get officers in position to be shot?

Momto2

Saw a snippet commercial of Leslie Stahl interviewing Trump & Pence. (Is that a wig?...on Leslie)

Newt was interviewed and handled it well. He alluded to his future position in a Trump administration without specifics. He said Trump made the right VP decision, the vetting process was extensive and thorough, and it showed how his past corporate experience with hiring/interviewing/choosing the best person would serve him well as President.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--Iggy, She is wearing a dress that shows a lot of leg.--

Then that pretzel twisting must have been pretty entertaining.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--This was during the Crusades, so I assume they were Muslims.--

Correct. They were Shia muslims from an area in Iran.
They are most useful to us because Hulagu Khan provided future states a blueprint on how to deal with muslims who refuse to behave like something besides a mad dog; behave or face complete annihilation.
Anyone seen a capital "A" Assassin around lately?

Buckeye

Obama community organizing is going to get Trump elected.

I might add Hulagu attempted to from an alliance with Europe to wipe out the muslim scourge once and for all, but to the world's great misfortune nothing ever came of it.

Ignatz,

I first ran across the Assassins and their leader in Thomas Costaine's history of the Pantagenet kings of England. (This is a fascinating 4-volume series, now out of print, I believe.)

Listed on the side of this slip jackety you can see the 4 titles in the series. This covers the Kings of England from William the Conqueror to Richard III.

I highly recommend it if it can be located used somewhere.

MM,

That shot of Assisi brings back sweet memories of our Grand Tour in 2014. It wasn't in the clouds that day but the photo does show the two "vias" you can use, both downhill but then you need to climb back up to the village.

Nice little restaurant on the corner as you leave the church plaza but the waiters are all "poca puntura's" or little pricks. The views from the parapet are incredible.

Things look swell, things look great
We got the whole world on a plate!
Starting here, starting now,
Everything's coming up roses!

We got nothing to do but relax.
Blow a kiss. Take a bow.
Honey, everything's coming up roses!

Now's our inning. Stand the world on its ear!
Set it spinning! This is just the beginning!
Curtain up! Light the lights!
We got nothing to hit but the heights!
You'll be swell. You'll be great.
I can tell. Just you wait.
That lucky star I thought is coming too

Honey, everything's coming up roses and daffodils
Everything's coming up sunshine and lollipops
Everything's coming up roses for me and for you!

Erdogan came to power back in the Bush administration. Bush was unwilling to speak out about Erdogan's Islamic leanings then. I believe that Muslim Brotherhood people were giving "Muslim World advice" then, although I could be misremembering.

According to AP, 3 officers dead and more wounded and fighting for life at a trauma center. Not a word about what caused them to be congregated at that convenience store.

Just got a call from a friend of mine, who is worried to death. Her son-in-law is CHP in Sacramento, and may have to go down to Oakland due to BLM crap.

They have a 2-year old and the wife is expecting twins.

Henry, apparently use of "pigmy/pygmy" is worthy of scientific study, probably taxpayer funded study producing nincompoopery as in the link.

Yes, but would like to know who made the call.

Police received a call of “suspicious person walking down Airline Highway with an assault rifle,” a source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN. When police arrived, the shooting began.

Of course the gunmen could probably count on someone calling the police, so no question this was an ambush.

FWIW: Pew study on teens and social media

"African-American teens are the most likely of any group of teens to have a smartphone, with 85% having access to one, compared with 71% of both white and Hispanic teens. These phones and other mobile devices have become a primary driver of teen internet use: Fully 91% of teens go online from mobile devices at least occasionally. Among these “mobile teens,” 94% go online daily or more often. By comparison, teens who don’t access the internet via mobile devices tend to go online less frequently. Some 68% go online at least daily. African-American and Hispanic youth report more frequent internet use than white teens. Among African-American teens, 34% report going online “almost constantly” as do 32% of Hispanic teens, while 19% of white teens go online that often."
