daddy in Seat A8

Hey, Where is everybody?

I'm on the other thread waiting for more "behind the scenes" gossip.

Clarice Feldman

I'm a cockeyed optimist but I think the Cruz suggestion will take hold.

We are busy making book on how long your going to sit on the Tarmac daddy.

We'll get back to you shortly :)

This thread has a long run-down on the progress against ISIS.

Most interesting to me is that when they opened up 3000 positions in the Iraqi special counter-terrorism units, 300,000 people applied. That's really quite a change!


This is part 1 with a video. Gorka is like a super-hero when dealing with the press.

Frau, I've got 3 books in my lap. The Darwin geology I will finish shortly, and 2'others if I need something else to keep me occupied. One is the ghost map explaining how London figured out where the. Cholera outbreak was coming from a hundred years ago.
And the other is some new one on the Origin's effect in America in the 1860's Lousy reviews for that one, but oh well, I read all the Darwin junk in hopes of finding some interesting buried nuggets. And I still have that autobiography of Geronimo in the rack above me. I failed Library run this trip:(

Miss Marple the Deplorable

This video is from the Iraqi PMU. It's short, but quite remarkable. Please watch until the end.

There are amazing things happening.

Amazing peter. Glad they took care of it.
I have a friend in her late forties, maybe 50, whose scoliosis was missed for many years and she now walks like she's about 95.

We can have health insurance and we can have welfare; we cannot have a "healthcare" program that pretends to be insurance but is really a massive and grossly inneficient expansion of welfare to swallow the entire health industry. When you cut out the gibberish it is really that simple.

Frau Putschisten 'raus

Sweet news, peter.

mockmook

Why the GOP will have such a hard time passing "repeal"/"replace":

The GOP represents the whole country -- all points of view except the extreme left.

Trying to get unanimity out of such a diverse coalition is nearly impossible.

[BTW, the Dems (meaning the Dems who wield power) represent ONLY the extreme left -- that is why they can get unanimity on policies/programs]

Frau Putschisten 'raus

Scott Hamann (D-Me) and Brad Sherman (D-CA) should count their lucky hammer and sickles that they live in the US. When the secret service visit, the two will (unfortunately) not disappear to some desolate and secure spot in ND or UT to live out their pathetic lives.

Dave (in MA),

Always glad to have the local opinio, since I don't know much about the guy. I did think it was interesting about the collusion.

Congratulations, DrJ.

And to you as well, peter.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Think I will head to bed and try to get my sleep better oriented.

Nytol!

Porchlight

mockmook, good point.

Even so, there are many Dems in the coalition that would love to pull the wagon even further left. Rank and file, too.

As I think Rick Ballard once said, if Gramsci were alive today, he would weep at his success.

Captain Hate

Congratulations DrJ. Mrs H is in Santa Cruz for over a month so Beerstock 2017 officially began today. This isn't about getting hammered because that is stoopid (apologies to rich) but I plan on increasing my knowledge of the summer beer styles (pilsners, goses, witbiers, saisons) plus if the temps ever break out of the dog days stagnation, invite some of my buds over to sample some of the stuff I've been aging in the basement.

It's great being here with just Teddy and Sailor. When Mrs H is here they'll whine until either she takes them out or, more frequently, she nags me to take them out. With just me here it's as quiet as a tomb. They know I adhere to a fixed schedule which takes care of all their needs with sporadic additions of dog parks.

Captain Hate

Congrats, peter.

I plan on increasing my knowledge of the summer beer styles (pilsners, goses, witbiers, saisons)

I like the sour styles, Cap'n. I've tried several. Best is a local sour pale ale, Blue Owl Spirit Animal. This was also good:

Good news Peter about your son and congrats to DrJ

jimmyk on iPhone

Congrats, DrJ, great news, peter!

From the last thread (DrJ to extraneus):
"One plugin that helps is killfile. Look into it, if you are not familiar with it."

Extraneus is one of the JOMers behind the narcisolator, which has its own killfile feature. So saying that to him is a bit like suggesting that Steve Jobs check out those new Android smartphones. :)

I may be one of the few devoted users of the narcisolator, but when it works (for some reason it doesn't work on one of my computers) it is far superior to killfile.

lyle

Congrats, DrJ! Best wishes.

Great news to Peter, as well.

Captain Hate

Love the sours, Porch, which a local craft brewery has been banging on. Also kolsches. I'm really not that much of an IPA fan. Berliner weisses are on my intense investigation list.

DrJ, my liver will be fine. In fact with Mrs H gone for a month my carb intake will be extremely low and I plan on reducing a significant amount of weight.

It's time to rescind Obama's illegal and arrogant executive order exempting Congress from Obamacare.

Remember this old NYT article. Read it carefully-Key word "Strzok" Mueller's newest conflict addition

On July 10, 2015, the F.B.I. opened a criminal investigation, code-named “Midyear,” into Mrs. Clinton’s handling of classified information. The Midyear team included two dozen investigators led by a senior analyst and by an experienced F.B.I. supervisor, Peter Strzok, a former Army officer who had worked on some of the most secretive investigations in recent years involving Russian and Chinese espionage.

In spring last year, Mr. Strzok, the counterintelligence supervisor, reported to Mr. Comey that Mrs. Clinton had clearly been careless, but agents and prosecutors agreed that they had no proof of intent. Agents had not yet interviewed Mrs. Clinton or her aides, but the outcome was coming into focus.

The Republican House rejected an attempt to ban transgender surgery for US troops.
Because there’s nothing more important for our military than sex change operations. ... The vote failed 214 to 209
24 Republicans voted with Democrats to defeat the amendment.
Liberals cheered the vote.

Congratulations Dr. and Mrs. J! 🎉🎉🎉

What is it with Hawaiian judges?

I'm so glad to read that the spotlight is finally focusing on McCain and his shenanigans.

First Lady Melania Trump looked fabulous in the red outfit she wore to Paris!

henry

So McCain is getting an offer he can't refuse? His staffers getting club fed retirements? I would be delighted to see these staff types fried. McCain off stage would be nice too. Without her father in a position to leak juicy bits, Meghan may need to rely on her script reading skilz, "do you want fries with that?"

On the Mueller targeting Dems. I have nothing against swampland in Florida, but I'm not buying any.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Am watching the Bastille Day paraade on a live feed. Pretty cool to see President Trump saluting the American troops.

Also, I think every unit of the French military has its own dress uniform.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

You know, I have often wondered if McCain's animosity to Russia stems from Russian interrogators during the Vietnam War. If I remember correctly the Russians played an advisory role to the North Vietnamese.

As it appears everyone involved in what now has to be seen as a bloodless coup is bring systematically let off the hook, might as well start calling this country the banana republic it has become. Thanks Obama.

We are noticing more and more evidence of deer activity in the yard. Lots of flowers eaten and/or tramples.

Couple mild winters followed by lush summers, and we have a critter explosion going on.

I'm still not getting up at 3 to shoo them out of the yard.

Grrr....

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Buckeye,

I live too near downtown now to have any wildlife; only a few squirrels and an occasional rabbit.

I miss my old backyard with it's trees and shrubs.

I am hoping I can get enough money together to have some beds dug and a couple of trees put in this fall. The people who lived here before my daughter bought the house lost their backyard trees in the drought a few years ago, because they didn't water them. (They were elderly folks) So the backyard has nothing except clover and scrub grass.

Buckeye

I feel so much safer knowing if Pvt. Sam Jones wants to become Pvt. Samantha Jones, Uncle Sam will castrate him on my nickel.

Insane.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Buckeye,

If you ask me this is a sneaky way that these types can get free surgery. I would bet 100% of them knew that they had some sort of sexual identity problem before they ever signed up. It's not like they were serving and in the middle of drill they suddenly thought, "By golly, I am really a woman!"

Nope. I would bet cash money there is an underground information system on how to enlist and then present yourself as needing the surgery. It's a scam, the same as it would be if someone enlisted wanted a nose job and suddenly discovered they were having breathing problems due to a deviated septum and complained until they got free surgery.

Buckeye

MM

I live a block east of the OSU golf course and we are 6 miles from Columbus city center.

There is a broad creek valley across the street that runs from the golf course to the Olentangy River, about 2 miles. The culverts under the surface streets are typically 5 - 6 feet in diameter.

This is the habitat for all these critters. Deer have no trouble moving in this valley given the culverts, and they do. Many times early in the morning I see them sunning themselves on the golf course before the humans show up.

Bad news is we see occasional coyotes too.

Dent, Charles PA 15th
Comstock, Barbara VA 10th
Reichert, David WA 8th

No one from flyover country, primarily NY and CA. I'm sure Paul Ryan just encouraged them to "vote their consciences." Disgusting.

There were also 6 Rs who didn't vote. Note that every single D vote was to keep the funding.
