Like diebold in the early 00s, which oddly didnt come into play, from 2006 and 2010.

JimNorCal

Yes, the Senate situation sucks for Dems.
Also the House, Presidency and plenty of more localized seats of political power.

But ... isn't it time for one of the libs on SCOTUS to choose family time, or join the Choir Invisible?

2008, remember where I suggest one of the grishrnko narrative promoters:

I nominate Mrs. Weinstein for the Sgt Schultz Award. She knew nossink.

Of course you could do a whole awards program with all of the people who are, shocked, shocked, at the behavior of Hollywood's most famous lothario.

Best Actor in a role denying Harvey's nature. Best Actress in a role resisting Harvey's importunings.

Best happy ending.

And on and on.....

I can remember when the idea of questioning election results was viewed with horror by the Dems and MSM.

Sex abuser addiction rehab covered by Obamacare?

lothario: "a man who behaves selfishly and irresponsibly in his sexual relationships with women"

Exactly, matt. I learned a new word too, as a "lothario" isn't simply a "ladies man" as I thought.

Of course the popularize of the black box squirrel was rfk Jr, who drove his wife to suicide (and now is featured on Morgan and Morgans ads) and the nazgul patterico has been dealing with, ever since he opened up the whole Carlos danger affair.

Rat and fmrly manbearpigs network (acquired by qatar, which also funds Barcelona) was even mote incendiary than MSNBC.

Beer names: never had any problem swilling Moose Drool. Of course being in a Montana bar helped.

What exactly is a sex addiction clinic? You go to a clinic that is overrun with sex addicts to break your sex addiction?

Sue

There is a beer joint in Oklahoma called The Drunken Mule. I love that name.

IMO, the Democrats running for office should worry a whole lot about the fact they are running as Democrats and very little about what the Russians are doing.

DrJ

Jane,

From the last thread, I'm fine. The air is pretty bad here today, and the sun is orange, but I think that is from some of the local fires that are about 50 miles away. These comparatively are small and of little threat.

Santa Rosa is another story. It looks like about half the town will have burned by the time this is done. And most of the small towns in the Valley of the Moon no longer exist.

jimmyk

TLG, I do wonder whether Don Jr has influenced Don Sr, or vice-versa. But Jr definitely hits the target. He could fit right in at JOM.

Buckeye

Did they have pickled eggs in a big jar on the shelf behind the bar?

Rocky mountain oysters on the menu?

Man Tran

Thinking about the smartphone addiction brings a couple of issues to mind.

When I was a little kid, about six, lambing in 30 below weather in Feb. was the main job and the barn seemed comfortable by comparison. As each ewe reached her moment, we would climb into her pen to help, particularly when twins were evident. I really had a tough time literally getting my hands dirty. Finally there was a moment when you just did it and after that there was no reticence. I think a person's day job has a bit of that lurking.

So, today, we either sneak a look at our fave social fix or slip out the back for a smoke. Anything to keep from getting immersed in the job moment. That little transition through the bubble either does or does not happen. When the whole shop ends up not going through, you end up with what most companies look like today, if you look close enough.

Rumors that HW has lots of pix, videos, provided to him by ambitious actresses. Could be brought out as evidence, or held over their heads to keep them quiet.

Thanks Dr J. Do you feel like you are in the threat? Or would a substantial change have to take place?

BTW my niece was scheduled for a trip to Napa Valley at the end of the month, for all the people who met their sales goals - and was really looking forward to it. It has been cancelled.

I don't want to say anything overly uncharitable about RBG but . . . isn't it time she resigned?

henry

New O'Keefe vid dropped.

Also no statute of limitations on rape in CA. Weinstein isn't gonna come back to the US, Polanski has a new permanent roomie.

DrJ

Jane,

I appreciate the concern, but practically I am under no threat from any of the existing fires. It would take a very unlikely series of events for that to change.

Jack is Back!

Another reason beside wine, to save Santa Rosa is "Peanuts & The Gang". The Chas. Shulz Museum is there.

Davod

Did the Weinstein revelations cause at least two more women to come out and say Polanski raped them or vice-versa.

An interview said the red grapes can be cleaned of smoke residue and still used and that most of the Chardonnay grapes are in. What kind of grapes does Thunderbird use?

"Also no statute of limitations on rape in CA. "
Probably not on the misuse of a pronoun either.

matt, deplore me if you must

We have stayed at the Hilton that burned down on several occasions. The Burbank House & gardens is a favorite in Santa Rosa. What a crying shame.None of our friends up in Napa or Sonma has reported any damage, but I heard that Stag's Leap (Winarski's) had flames come close by.

I just gotta say that it is very amusing watching the Dems look for Reds under their beds. How the worm turns.

Per our Chitown lurker, the prosecution rests in the Menendez trial.

My late step-monster complained of breathing problems and then stayed in Durango when wildfires made it smokey. Later she had the pleasure of dragging around oxygen tanks, with a generator at home. Did I mention she had munchausen's?

Menendez trila. Don't worry. As soon as he crosses the floor and becomes a Republican (for a reduced sentence) the media will be on him like bees to honey.

Davod-

in response to a question you had a few days back. not sure if anyone else got to it.

yes the fbi knew about and egged the garland attackers and an fbi agent was filming the attack before local police shot and killed the attackers. the fbi said they had no idea what was happening ...

jimmy-we talked yesterday about how Thaler's specialty now thoroughly permeates K-12 ed as well as what data can produce when married to public policy and imposed by law. Thought you would appreciate this tomorrow.

BEAR stands for Behavioral Economics in Action research. and the OECD co-controls ed policy globally with unesco.

rse

jimmy-one more thing from following be for a while as it kept showing up in footnotes. They no longer want to go by be and want to absorb what used to be called classical economics.

Economics wants to be normative, not descriptive and certainly not just mathematical.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Back from the grocery, where I discovered my debit card missing. Since I used it at the gas station prior going to the grocery, either I left it there or lost it somehow. So, after checking out and NOT being able to pay, I drove to my bank branch, reported it lost and put on permanent deactivated status, had the teller check my balance (hadn't been used after gas station), got cash, went BACK to the grocery, paid, loaded car, came home, and unloaded. Whew!

I will get a new card in 7-10 days, so that's ok.

Laura Ingraham had on that guy from TMZ who said that this was NOT a secret and everyone in Hollywood knew about this and he means EVERYONE.

Rush is consumed with WHY NOW? He thinks something else is going on.

Now I will go check Twitter to see if anything new has popped up.

Ralph L

Is anyone watching the L&O Menendez Bros show on NBC?
It claims that Eric admitted the incest before Abramson came up with the abuse excuse, which I find doubtful.
If the killer bros didn't waive privilege, how did Dick W know enough for this series? Wasn't Leslie A disgraced for something?
Nothing on Wiki.

DebinGA

Whenever I see "Menendez trial" I think of the two rich kids who shotgunned their parents and used "We're orphans" to get sympathy.

Ralph L

MM, you asked about an IU money grant earlier. UNC just announced a $4.25 Billion fundraising campaign. They're already a third of the way there. This is the whole system for the state, including NCSU I believe. I hope daddy didn't send money.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

Apparently so does Ralph, Deb.

Is it worth watching Ralph. I always thought that it was such a bizarre case - kill your parents to get their money, and go to jail for life. Talk about dumb.

This will kill the Boy Scouts. I used to be a den mother and trying to find interests for both boys and girls will be very difficult.

So never trumper egotist bill kristol has put this together with Bill Galston. http://newcenter.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/TheNewCenter_Ideasbook9_10.pdf

It's all about "recentering america". Gag.

brookings is pushing it which suggests where kristol has really been all along.

Rich. Add this to the many other reasons it can be said that the Obama administration was acting outside the law. One of the most egregious administrations in the history of the US.

Boy Scouts admitting girls. How long before anything male is removed from the training schedule. Replaced by more inclusive material.

DebinGA

Aren't Cub schouts ~8-9 yr. old? The merit badges look equally accessible and of interest to girls and boys imo. By comparison, the Girl Scouts were very sub-par in our experience.

Marlene

Good afternoon! rse,have you heard of the Varkey Foundation and the Global Teacher Prize? A Maine teacher won the $1M award in 2015. She set up a private school in Maine and was awarded the prize. This woman has been arrested for the THIRD time for shoplifting! The item she recently took was a dog leash from a hardware store. Her $1M prize didn't last long. What the heck?!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

narciso,

ChiTown wants to know if you remember the guy Ben Rhodes used to contact at NBC. He thinks you might know.

henry

How long before anything male is removed

I’m sure there will be a merit badge for that.

rse

marlene-I have not, but ed admin's these days frequently have barely taught and are promoted more for what they are willing to do to students than for anything they know.

Davod


MM, Narciso, and ChiTown. I do't know about NBC, but his brother David was President of CBS.

Ralph L

Jane, so far it's OK, if you can remember you're looking at actors, not real monsters (including Leslie, who is humanized more than I like).
I followed it at the time and saw the documentary, but this fills in the details. Don't know how true they are.
So far the DA looks worse than the defense, with a reference to the Buckey/McMartin travesty. It hasn't gotten to the first trial yet.

At any rate, better than Criminal Minds reruns on Ion that I've seen several times.

Porchlight

Boy Scouts admitting girls - UGH. Another SJW win.

My son's troop had better not admit any or we're out.

I think Caesar could have handled Marc Antony who appeared rather weak in a recent program depicting that era.

Its on. From my Vet's Muster Chief, ex-USNA.

Let their ratings go down, their sponsors leave and they play to ½ empty stadiums. In this instance, let’s demonstrate that our Country and our symbols of flag and anthem are more powerful than their raised fists and locked arms and their taking a knee.

"People are now calling for a complete National Boycott of the NFL for Sunday November 12th, which is Veteran’s Day Weekend. They are calling for a boycott of all football telecasts, all fans, all ticket holders, stay away from attending any games, let them play to empty stadiums. Pass this post along to all your friends and family. Honor our military, some of whom come home with the American Flag draped over their coffin..There are plenty of ways, times and places to protest concerning one’s chosen cause, but to do so during a brief special time set aside to honor our nation’s flag and the bravery and lives of our nation’s military heroes, is inappropriate and disrespectful. Of course black lives matter, as well as blue lives matter, but so do the precious lives of millions of US soldiers (of all races) who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend and protect our nation’s rights and freedoms…..and who most certainly deserve all of our respect. It’s not about Trump, it is about all those who bravely and unselfishly serve and who have served our nation. The Star Spangled Banner is presented to honor all of them.”

It's been more than a few years since our girls were in Girl Scouts while their dad was a Scout leader, but the difference in badge requirements was stark. I think most 8-9 yr yo boys might benefit from the extra push to "beat the girls" merit-badge obtaining wise. Ditto girls to beat the boys. After age 9? No.
