Good night for hockey.

QUIZTIME: Special Braking and Entry edition!

Yesterday, at some unknown hour, someone broke into Mass Murderer Paddock's completely and totally secured by Police house in Reno. What did the robbers walk away with?

A) Paddock's remaining AK-47's?

B) Paddocks canisters of explosive Ammonium Nitrate?

C) Paddocks Philippine girlfriend's recipe for Lumpia?

D) The last shreds of the integrity of the Nevada Police and the FBI?

 narciso

Gas masks and probably his supply of incendiary shells (I don't know if the writer saw kingsman too many times)

henry

His secret formula for winning video poker.

Jack is Back!

Back from Frederick's "Investiture" for 9th grade at Mercy. Very nice little formality but with cupcakes and coffee:)

I am an Atlantic Council Eagle Scout. Not too many of us since I think giving up the bases not many American kids living in Iceland or Greenland or Newfoundland now. Back in the day in DC, I was invited to an BSA appreciation dinner for Dick Gephart who was an Eagle Scout and big supporter of BSA. It was around 1992 and back that far back he thought BSA would liberalize (why wouldn't he:) and allow gays and girls.

I had Frederick in Scouts up to Webelo but then the emphasis on badges shifted to social justice and away from independent living/survival/wilderness, etc.

I pulled him out remembering Gephart. Only advice I have ever taken from a liberal democrat.

Jack is Back!

Okay. I will admit that the Yankee-Indian game is too intriguing to not watch.

So, tell me how a guy who my dogs could knock over, hits 2 homers consecutively?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

President Trump on Hannity now.

Jack is Back!

MM,

Keep us informed. Most are watching the BB game.

mad jack

go tribe! unfortunately their bats seem to have gone into off-season mode early.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jack,

First part is about tax cuts, which many heard at his speech.

Over 3 trillion dollars overseas. He wants to bring as much as they can back. Will get a lower tax at about 10%.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

On cutting deductions on state income taxes: It's not fair to penalize states like Indiana and Iowa to subsidize places like NY & California.

Voters om those states should demand that their officials run their states responsibly.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

Praises Scott Pruitt, talks about coal and energy coming back.

Hannity: Will he win Pennsylvania in 2020? Big cheers!

daddy

40 Hotel channels and the game is not on. I'm listening via computer to some Cleveland Sports Channel. This is madness. The Memphis TV channels have 2 football replay channels and 2 channels of NBA replays currently ongoing, but no BaseBall. You can't be America's Sport if you don't broadcast it on channels humans can watch.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

West Virginia's increase in GDP came in second behind Texas, and he is very proud of that. Due to mining opening up again.

Jack is Back!

daddy,

And no one kneeled that I know of, let the idiots at Fox Memphis know that. Its on FS1 if the bar has it.

Porchlight

Gotta be a bar nearby, daddy!

My kids are watching Grease for the 800th time.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

Talking about dishonest media. "Fake media" gets cheers from the crowd.

Talks about how we need more GOIP senators, a few bad votes for whatever reason, maybe grandstanding.

Will sign Healthcare EO tomorrow that will cover a large number of people, crossing state lines, etc.

Jack is Back!

I think daddy is in his flying bubble and can't go to a bar without ordering a ginger ale. Plus he probably has an early flight.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

Democrats have lousy policies bit they stick together. GOP has good policies but don't stick together. we thought we had John McCain but then whatever.

Will keep pushing on repealing ACA.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

Picking up numbers on GDP very important.

We started with one, now up to over 3.

Jack is Back!

Francona can exhaust his bull pen all night. That's not his problem. He needs runs and so far Sabathia has all the cards. If only Jay Bruce was a right hander, sigh!

DrJ

Over 3 trillion dollars overseas. He wants to bring as much as they can back.

I have a question on this. My understanding is that most companies with large amounts of cash overseas loan it back to the US-based portion of operations. The interest payments deductible here; they are taxed overseas at very low rates.

Once the notes come due, they are rolled over into new ones.

In this low interest-rate environment, how much difference would it make to repatriate the underlying capital?

Stephanie Nene Not your normal Grandma

From Facebook: "US men's soccer team" is how you say "New York Giants" in Spanish.

Ha!

Jack is Back!

DrJ,

Do you trust the EU? Ask Apple, Alphabet and other of the big 6.

No, I think they are willing to bring it back to protect from those leeches in the EU.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

I will defer to Jack on that matter, as I don't know anything about finance.

National anthem thing is bad for business in the NFL.

Chicago shootings: policeman in Chicago tld him they could stop a lot of it if they were alloed to do their jobs.

Refers to Rudy in New York and how glad he was to get his endorsement because of the srop in crime in NY.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

Horrible situation in inner cities. Have to get opportunity for them. "I rold them What in the hll do you have to lose?"

Ben Carson doing a great job.

ALso says we are stopping a lot of the crime.

Jack is Back!

When you think about it there is a huge differnce between a business negotiation and a diplomatic negotiation.

What Trump is doing is offer the other party only one way in or out. What the State guys do is offer the other guy a numberThe of ways to change, keep or accept conditions.

The NORKs are baffled because they don't understand that kind of negotiation. Even China doesnt.

DrJ

JiB,

OK, but minimizing political risk is very different than the financial effect it would have. Sure, the Corps might bring money back. But it would not seem that the financial impact would be particularly large.

And that's what Trump is selling.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

"Calm before the storm?"

Hannity asks about Kim and nuclear weapon which could reach US.

Trump says that should have been handled years ago. Says China seems to be helping, but who knows.

Won't say anything about plans. Uses Mosul as an example. Won't explain calm before the srorm, gets cheers from the audience.

Jack is Back!

DrJ,

Well, if they don't bring it back then I guarantee that the EU will use that as an opening to grab it. I have spent too much time there past and present. They are leeches, believe me.

If you are correct, bye, bye billions.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

Regarding Iran deal, he knows what he is going to do but won't reveal tonight. (Cheers again from audience.)

Goes over how bad Iran deal is, trashes Kerry.

We will see what happens.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

I missed the part about immigration reform because I had to get the dogs outside and back in.

Jack is Back!

Does anyone else feel as if we are watching the utlitmate Celebrity Apprentice and the contestants are Kim, Xijng, Putin, R. Castro, Rouhami, Jimmy Kimmel and Ralph?

NEW: Harvey Weinstein lands in Arizona for sex addiction rehab - TMZ

=========================

So, first reports were wrong. Lying media as usual.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Trump interview:

Russian excuse manufactured by dems.

Very bad for our country for this to go on.

Then he runs through Hillary's electoral college losses and why didn't she go to Wisconsin and such.

Honestly, he is dodging the original question about Julian Assange and if he would talk to him.

Jack is Back!

Injuns on the board and Sabathia looks tired. Hold on folks, we may have a ball game.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

That's the end of the interview.

Now Hannity is interviewing crowd, who are anti-Congress and supportive of Trump.

Jack is Back!

Its on. No more big guy Sabathia. 4 innings and he proves 300+ pounds never go the distance. Another Giradi error. He knows that.

Injuns now 2, Yanks 3. Lots of time.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

My personal opinion on the interview:

Hannity will never ask hard questions, so this was an easy appearance for President Trump.

No questions on a lot of stuff, lots of rehash.

The dodging on Assange was pretty obvious. Don't know if that was because he didn't want to anger Assange supporters, or whether there is something going on which he didn't want to signal to enemies.

That is my honest reporting.

Catsmeat

Thanks for the thoughts, MM and daddy--I am thankful for those people without the inbred flight fear--may they soar! And if I shed the fear someday, when then that would be just lovely. I fly a reasonable amount and always come through fine--but I am going to hold onto the Lord's Prayer, which is in any case a right and just thing to do...

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Catsmeat,

Can[t go wrong with the Lord's Prayer, whether you have fear or not.

You took a shot.

This is my last direct post to you
I answered you today while you were here and no one says duh anymore.

Threadkiller

The media spiked stories?

During the Birther Years the afterbirthers swore that there was no way enough people would be able to keep their mouths shut to bury the true story of Odummy and his lack of eligibility.

HW Pervinstuff seemed to find a way to keep things quiet. Intimidation.

It would be very unlike Obama and the Dems to use intimidation, so maybe the afterbirthers were right.

Threadkiller

No duh, maryrose.

Windansea took a shot when I wasn't here, so there.

Do the kids in your classroom respect you at all?

Threadkiller

after he handled you in the discussion

Hahahahaha!!!!

Maybe the C students respect you when you blindly give them an A.

You and I have different realities, MR.

Yours excludes complete timelines. That is why you constantly ignored what Bob Corker did to Trump.

I consider the entire timeline, that is why windansea wanted to change the subject.

How do you spend so much time her and miss so much? It doesn't seem possible.

I must admit, I'm not a big fan of what Melania wore today meeting the Trudeau's . Just not my style-I'm sure MM can tell me what statement she was try to make.

TLG: I'm not a big fan

No cowboy boots?

Stephanie Nene Not your normal Grandma

Looks like what we wore to HS in the 70s. Seriously. Except the tie. We dressed for school everyday. Our choice. Suits and skirt suits and dresses and nice pants/shirts. Maybe jeans but if so, they had a nice shirt and shoes/belt and no sneakers.

Kids are slobs today.

Texas Liberty Gal

sbw - Yes that's what's missing - a pair of snakeskin cowboy boots would have worked perfectly😉

Well, that was huge.

Santa Rosa is a bit more than 100 miles away. The air here is a bit smoky. Schools are cancelling sporting events due to questionable air, etc.

Wow.

A snip from an email sent out by the county's Info Officer:
HEALTH ADVISORY: Precautions Against Unhealthy Air Quality from Wildfire Smoke

Wildfires are causing unprecedented levels of air pollution throughout the Bay Area. The County of Santa Clara Public Health Department is advising residents to take precautions against the wildfire smoke and unhealthy air quality in Santa Clara County. Due to changing wind patterns, air quality could be impacted for many days

"despite good faith engagement thus far by the witnesses on the potential terms for voluntary cooperation" ... Talk about weasel words. Good for Nunes. Adam Schiff would have run straight to Mueller, who'd claim he had the ring of power over the dodgy dossier investigation.

From Insty---this guy ate Like The Rock for half a year:

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-rock-dwayne-johnson-diet/?ex_cid=story-twitter

It's low inflammation (no processed carbs).
(6000 calories to offset his two and a half hours of exercise too, but if you're not doing that, obviously no need to eat as much as The Rock)

This paragraph explains why virtually every person I know who's done it for four weeks or longer basically sticks with it, in general:

“My arms have gotten a little bigger, the upper parts of my legs have gotten bigger, and I’ve gotten leaner, which is again totally unexpected,” he said. “I feel amazing. I’m 37, I get little aches and pains all the time; I have none of those anymore. I feel better than I did before I was doing this. My resting heart rate has dropped by like four beats per minute over the past month. I feel fantastic.
