Ahhh Norway!

Jane,I just read a comment on Next Door posted by someone in our community. She got a Facebook message from a friend saying that there is a major gas shortage from the FL border down to Tampa. People are getting off exits because the gas buddy app says gas is available and it isn't. Of course,the problem should be remedied by the end of the week. The traffic will be a nightmare with thousands of people going back.

In case this hadn't made it on the last round up:

Talked with a bunch of Dem operatives last night at the courtesy bar in Orlando(thanks Jeff Reilly and wife for being gracious hosts on the tail end of of Irma) and apparently Trump wants to deal with Schumer and Pelosi on a whole range of issues.


Why?


My dem buddies told me that Trump realized that the Republican party doesn't want to get anything done because to achieve shit makes the federal government look competent and that's not going to happen under GOP rule.

The President is a deal maker and a narcissist and has just realized that he and the Democrats can achieve incredible things together and salvage his legacy.

ladies and gentlemen...Donald J.Trump....the Democrat!

Catching up, peter asked a couple threads back about helicopter rescues, or lack thereof, at the WTC. My understanding is that the helicopters were poised and waiting, but access to the roof was locked. I don't think smoke was an obstacle. A horrendous error--God knows how many could have gone up to the roof and been rescued before the collapse.

I'll mention again that I found "Path to 9/11" online here (part 1):

Watched the first segment last night. Really good, feels like a documentary though much of it is a re-creation. Starring Harvey Keitel as John O'Neil. Check it out before the Clintons make it disappear again.

Fritz Perls wrote about how people replay “unfinished gestalts” in the mind trying to finish them with a satisfactory ending.

No can do. Don’t try. The terror of the past should be looked at softly at a distance as instructional.

KK @ 11:28,

Are you assuming the murder was by a muzzie?

Wife says the thinking in the local papers was that it was revenge.

Maybe they put some in.

Could the roof have been locked because of that French idiot 's high wire stunt in 1974?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

sbw,

I had forgotten about that! Good call!

jimmyk on iPad

The point was instructional, sbw: Make roofs accessible in emergencies. My apartment building in NYC has that.

sbw

jimmyk, I was reading it another way. Thanks.

sbw

Just found a note I had scribbled in the car some time ago. Don’t remember writing it.:

“I’m old enough now that I can be young.”

JimNorCal

Thanks, sbw. Evolution is one side but my concern is the devolution side.
We've lost the awareness of how important it is to win. We're not willing to make messy decisions. We think we're so strong and invulnerable that fighting without winning comes without a price.

I remember hearing the winds were too high for helicopter rescues. Am I remembering wrong?

I guess this was what I was remembering, not winds, but smoke.

We are going 84 to 81 to avoid all the traffic.
If you've never done this, I heartily recommend it (from west CT, I get off at Staunton to cut east to Charlottesville). Less traffic and mostly 2 lanes, so much less nerve-racking.

Perpetual construction in Scranton. Usually a jam-up before Harrisburg where I78 merges, and not much gas/food in the mountains before that.

This story suggests smoke was an issue, but if you read it, only for the South Tower:

'The roof of the South Tower, said Hayes, was totally obscured. As for the North Tower, "there was nobody on the roof," he said.'

http://abcnews.go.com/Primetime/story?id=132172


jimmyk on iPad

Oops, Sue beat me to it, but the point remains.

Sue

Jimmy, I'm wondering if the north tower had been hit yet when he said that?

Captain Hate

Check it out before the Clintons make it disappear again.

Slick is surely watching porn beside The Energizer these days, safely out of Chardonnay fueled flying lamps range. The Omen won't understand it if she sees it. If Curb Dive sees it she'll blame it for her loss.and it might remind the dolts how it suddenly disappeared until Colbert orders them that ignorance and censorship are good for them.

jimmyk on iPad

Not clear, Sue, but there was only 15 minutes or so between the two hits. So my guess is that it had been hit, and the smoke hadn't gotten as bad as in that video. I recall the North Tower burned for an hour before it collapsed. The window of opportunity might have been there but not so long.

Beautifully stated. Your comment has gone into my Quotes To Remember file with attribution to you.

Good Morning!

Jay Sekulow on Laura Ingrham's show just said that he has evidence via FOIA that Comey knew immediately that Loretta Lynch had met Bill Clinton on the Tarmac, and that his feigned outrage later was entirely staged and that he was in fact complicit in figuring out how to craft the message the Administration wound up putting out.

Don't know if thats new info but thought I'd put it out.

This story suggests smoke was an issue

jimmyk,

I recall that being reported on 9/11. There was too much smoke for the helicopters to make a landing on the towers. I'm sure that it was heartbreaking and difficult for those pilots to have to watch without being able to help.

This is all going to come out now.

As things progress, I expect Mueller to attempt to meet and entrap Trump, with Trump urging Mueller to end the investigation, creating an appearance of obstruction.

At the first hint, I expect Trump to throw Mueller out of the Oval office. Trump keeping recordings, of course.

These guys apparently wrote their own security. Probably their own salaries too.

http://truepundit.com/fbi-awans-security-clearances-forged-granted-access-to-congressional-intel-despite-falsified-vetting/

This has to be a joke. "One USIS investigator approved over 15,000 case files in one month “with most of these occurring within minutes of each other on multiple days,” according to the report. USIS conducted clearance sweeps for OPM until late 2014 when the businesses folded."

My guess is that no US secret was ever protected during the Obama Admin.

"Either someone with clout in Congress, or higher, made sure the Awans received their security clearances despite glaring problems or the investigators pushed their files through for approval as part of a systemic breakdown.

"I expect Mueller to attempt to meet and entrap Trump"

Trump is smart enough to have his attorney present.

from Captain's 12:51 -

" “Trump actively tried to discourage people from voting at all. They used some of the same tactics as the Russians, including trafficking in fake news and under-the-radar Facebook attacks. Despicable stuff."

Miss Marple the Deplorable

peter,

I remain convinced that book contracts are a method of paying politicians off under the table.

Most of the publishing houses are privately held, so there are no stockholders to challenge excessive advances. There is no one to challenge a sudden cash infusion into the coffers of the company to cover those huge advances.

Furthermore, the media never questions these huge advances against royalties, simply touting a huge advance as a sign of how popular the politician-author is.

It's a perfect scheme for money laundering.

Captain Hate

Janet, it's the Val-u-Rite vodka Chardonnay talking.

“I’m old enough now that I can be young.”

sbw,

That's the way that I felt when I retired. I felt like I did when I was in my early 20's.

Might as well enjoy it. Age eventually slows us down a bit. We just have to schedule around it, plan for it like anything else.

Fairly big local News--- A Judge has approved the Sale of the massively failing local newspaper, The ADN (Alaska Dispatch News) for $1 Million:

Alaska's largest newspaper avoids closure as bankruptcy judge approves $1M deal

Talk Radio News says that the seller, Billionairess owner Alice Rogoff Rubinstein of DC, was initially offered 1 Dollar by an in-state family (the Binkley's) for the paper, but she turned that down, hoping for other offers, but none came: so the Binkley's offered up $1 Million and she had to take it.

Despite attempts by Rogoff to sell the paper to national media companies and other local investor groups, only the Binkleys had enough interest to actually place a bid by the time the bankruptcy auction rolled around on Monday.

That is not entirely surprising: the company is losing $1 million a month, and there are big concerns about where the paper can be printed due to troubles with the printing press.

If not for the deal, the company would literally have been down to $467 on hand by the end of the week.

So the paper had less than 500 bucks in the bank.

The deal also means that Northrim Bank, GCI, and dozens of contractors -- most of all M&M Wiring -- will see little if any money for work they performed for Rogoff's company.

Rogoff walked away from reporters saying she would "never do an interview," but her attorney, Cabot Christianson said that people being left without money is just the way bankruptcy works.

"It's unfortunate, but that's what the bankruptcy system was designed for, when there's not enough money to go around. If there's not enough money to go around, by definition, somebody doesn't get paid," Christianson said.

On FB I had some outfit commenting on all my posts with links to a site called happy_foxie. They were all negative to Trump.
Phony FB sites had been set up to comment on Trump supporters' pages.
I saw it on other Trump supporter posts too.

I had to change my setting so only friends could comment. (my setting otherwise is public)

MM, that's my idea. Bertelsman's advance of $60 m to the Obamas surely came in that way.

Janeprobably about 10 minutes after getting there

Well my neighbors are able to get into my house today. I'll start with the bad news. Arlene said that she had to throw away half a watermelon because it was in my refrigerator too long. Yes I am in the mourning but kiwi.. is safe so I'll get over it. The good news is everything else is fine. I have electricity. All my stuff is safe. I assume my car and golf cart both work although I haven't tried them. Thank you all very much for all your support.
