72 isn't helping, is it? Looks like some scores were lower.

Must be Jim Jordan the only one who gives a hoot about repealing Obamacare, H e is from Ohio. Booyah.

Kev, I’m going to work under the assumption that the Magnesium you recommended didn’t let in the bad bugs. I’m going to keep taking it.

Get better!

For the first time, someone (Ian?) mentioned that new Bermuda greens are hard as concrete. No s#@T, Dick Tracy. We just redid our Links course in Florida, all new greens. Same Championship Bermuda.

Shots to the green were bounding and bouncing putting a premium on the short game and you would think that favors a guy like Spieth but if have to hit your second shot out of 2 1/2" Bermuda rough, that ain't going to happen. Not the right course for Spieth since he is a rip it and gouge it kind of player who has a superb short game is the best putter in the game (Ricky may want to disagree at this stage).

He may even struggle to make the cut unless he can get his putter a lot hotter than its been.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I was over on Conservative Treehouse reading posts. One of the more interesting aspects of this campaign and election, one which I have never seen before, were the number of religious prophecies about Donald Trump. Today there are several posted in the comments of the Daily Trump news section.

Why did that happen? They are from all sorts of people including a Roman Catholic lay person, so it isn't just charismatic-wing evangelicals. Many of them were made before he announced he was running.

Another unusual aspect were the number of memes, home-made video ads, posters, independently organized group demonstrations, etc. I have never seen that before, either, and I have been watching politics since 1960.
What compelled people to do this? Furthermore, why do they KEEP doing it? Twitter is full of them. The Reddit site The_Donald has almost half a million members.

These are interesting aspects I don't really bring up much, because it touches on mysticism and things that would probably make me sound loonie-tunes.

However, there is a brick placed in the wall when they sealed the Jubilee doors during the papacy of St. John Paul. The brick was purchased and placed there by an American hermit at Loretto. On that brick is the name "Donald J. Trump", so a mass is said over his name every day. I thought that was really interesting.

This afternoon the President is leading a group on workforce development, particularly apprenticeships:

TM asked if we could hack the guidance system on a NORK ICBM.

Absolutely. I think it is a given that we did on their failed launch hoping it would send a message but that fat head Kim didn't understand it. I don't think the THAAD is much help at re-entry trajectory but rather at launch angles before apogee.

I think the same guys who shoved a stuxnet into the Persian abacuses can find a way to infiltrate the computer version of an ancient 'Go' system. Wouldn't suprise me that we are communicating daily with their launch and targetting system, just waiting to blow one up again.

Jordan Peterson?

Now, Ralph L, you do know that the PGA of Great Britain and Ireland was the first PGA of any country, right? So, you are correct it should be called the United States PGA, not The PGA. That should be reserved for the British PGA but they don't have an equivalent tournament.

So, we get to call our PGA the PGA. Get it:)??

Miss Marple:

If Trump has to walk to a summit in Syria's capital, there might be something in your prophecy. Something like what you had in mind did happen in the movies.

I am beginning to think all the people who worked for He Who Shall Not Be Named were either Muslims, communists, crooks, or mentally defective, or some combination thereof.

Lyle,

I asked people to talk to regular posters instead of about them. That seems like such a democrat tactic to me and bugs the shit out of me. I don't expect people to comply but maybe just think about if they want to sound like lying socialists. (Is that a better argument?)

Ralph L

I was going to say "Imagine the reaction if archconservative Pres. X had hired more archconservatives", but I couldn't think of any that far beyond the Pale, that would do real damage to the country.

Appalled, go read the opinion piece in the WSJ yesterday that showed the scatter plot of the vote results from the election.

If Trump continues his appeal with social conservatives and improves the economy and job situation, going to be hard to beat in 2020.

Don't know about other here, but I don't give a crap how Republicans in Congress "feel" about Trump, and I think most voters are on the same page.

Jack is Back!

Isn't Winged Warrior what they called those Plymouth and Dodges of the 70's with there high back wings off the trunk lid?

Porchlight

Watch as the Rs in Congress come crawling back to Trump (those that aren't already supporters) as we get closer to 2018.

Right now they're just dipping their buckets into the NeverTrump donor well.

I just noticed that Quail Hollow is set up at 7,600 yards, with par of 71. That's a lot of golfage... :)

I wonder what's making Jane think that people are talking about people rather than to them.

BoE,

Wait until it rains and soaks the course. 7600 becomes 8000 easily. But at least the balls will only bounce 6 feet high with wet greens.

interesting addition to the Nation article regarding VIPS report on the DNC 'hack' (i.e. leak):

Editor’s note: After publication, the Democratic National Committee contacted The Nation with a response, writing, “U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded the Russian government hacked the DNC in an attempt to interfere in the election. Any suggestion otherwise is false and is just another conspiracy theory like those pushed by Trump and his administration. It’s unfortunate that The Nation has decided to join the conspiracy theorists to push this narrative.”

James Damore of Googlag, explains his firing. Actually, the guy is too smart for Alphabet.

NBC would be smart to replace MeAgain with Damore but then there are not enough OR's to handle the exploding heads over that move.

I was going to say that Appalled is so incoherent now that I was going to hush him and change my name to Appalled Ignatz because his current idiocies are so darned appalling.

However I have changed my mind because I don't want to be rude.

JiB,

The 'google trick' to get around the paywall doesn't work when it's an article critical of Google. And probably when it isn't, too.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Porchlight,

Sabo! Thanks! For the life of me I couldn't remember his name!

derwill, yet another adorable, irredeemable deplorable

I always expected the GOPe to be part of "the resistance."

After all, these are the guys who flirted with idea of denying Trump the nomination at the Convention. Who launched a coordinated effort to get Trump to withdraw from the campaign after the pussy tape came out (Ryan's Coup Attempt). Who even if they didn't openly say they were supporting Hillary, gave every indication that privately they expected--if not hoped--that she would win.

Right now their strategy seems to be to continue to ride on Trump's coattails, while at the same time doing everything they can to derail his agenda. It is a short-sighted strategy, and one that is doomed to backfire on them, but hardly unexpected coming from the leaders of the Stupid Party.

Thanks on the googlag trick info. BTW, don't tell me that Brookline has become Prog central. Brookline? How far we have fallen.

Are you kidding? It's been known as the People's Republic as long as I can remember.

matt, deplore me if you must

The DNC affair looks like a classic coverup. Stonewalling the FBI; Using an outside company to make sure nothing further leaks out. There never was any interest in getting to the bottom of the story because they already know what happened.

The toxic nature of the e mails leaked points towards blue on blue at a time when the game was being rigged against Bernie.

The whole thing is obfuscated and purposely distorted to try and gain some political advantage by blaming on the Rooshians.

Trump: Kim Jong Un 'will regret it fast' if he attacks Guam, US allies

North Korea’s state news agency most recently warned “even a single shell dropped on the Korean Peninsula might lead to the outbreak of … thermonuclear war.”

“We consider the U.S. no more than a lump which we can beat to a jelly any time,” the Korean Central News Agency said, quoting Institute of International Studies researcher Kang Kum Chol.

As I think I read this week, they don't have thermonuclear weapons. We do. So I guess he's right in a way.
