OT--but hilarious--Assange screws wolff and his publisher--prints entire book free online:https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-07/wikileaks-publishes-michael-wolffs-entire-sold-out-trump-book-pdf

Tome much for principles on the left. When your money is controlled by someone besides them, they panic.

Catsmeat

Assange--excellent work. Confound their schemes!

JimNorCal

Yeah, like I'm going to check a box to make my taxes a charitable donation to the state of CA.
As a troll on another blog used to say: NaGaHaPen (not gonna happen)

Ohio State tied with #1 Michigan State 27-27, almost halftime.

Ohio State 41, Sparty 29 at the half.

Jack is Back!

I don't even watch kollige ball until March Show me the rankings the Satruday of the tournament seedings.

Drew Breese, for a small QB, has some arm.

That Yale psychiatrist has the same respect for the ethics of her profession as Michael Wolff has for his.

Extraneus

Btw, from the prior thread, that professor is "internationally known and has briefed members of Congress on Trump’s mental fitness."

Hard to imagine the pain these people are in over Trump. I love it, but it's really not healthy for them or for the country.

Like that comment CH posted from "Maritime" (I think it was)...

They would have been much better off accepting the loss.

daddy

OT.

Those little clear plastic containers you buy at the grocery store full of Strawberrys, Blueberry's, Raspberry's etc---Do you guys wash the fruit off first or do you just eat 'em straight out of the packaging as is?

boatbuilder

They would have been much better off accepting the loss.

It ain't about "accepting" anything, Ext; When you are on the side of "truth" and "justice" (the Left) you simply change the rules. This is about power.

They will never "accept" anything but getting what they want.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I always wash them, daddy. They aren't guaranteed to be safe and who knows how many people have handled them?

Jane

Hey thanks for for all the TV advice on the last thread. I'm gonna get a 40" something which I can get under $300 - either at Amazon, Sams or Walmart.

Jack my cable is free where I live so that's not an issue.

Rocco

Ex, I never tried the homebrew I found and I found a lot through the years, those dirty socks scared me, lol. This scene from The Fighter was filmed at my work station. Most of my time there was on the 2nd Tier. For many years that officers station you see in the background was a desk and two chairs. Sometimes the cons would slide that metal door shut to keep us out while they fought behind it in the gym off to the left.

Posted by: daddy

I eat them out of the package and then wash them down with scotch or tequila to be safe.

sbw

Another option is to store the berries in vodka until you need them.

daddy

Miss M,

I never wash them, but Momma does and goes banana's that I don't. Maybe it's just me. I do know that in the early days in China I used to not ever drink the water or use the ice cubes, etc, but nowadays I simply say "What the hey" and roll with it. Not in India of course---I'm not yet that crazy:)

DebinGA

I always rinse fruit I won't peel under tap water and put in clean bag.

Kevlar Kid

Fruit processing facilities are, by and large, highly unsanitary installations.

Hydrogen peroxide in solution makes for a nice dunking pool for large batch purchases before refrigerating in summer.

Be safe. Wash it before you eat it.

Jack is Back!

I wash them first in the container then take them out and wash them with scotch or tequila to be double safe:)

Extraneus

They will never "accept" anything but getting what they want.

I think the main thought from that "Maritime" comment, bb, was that they're soon going to suffer some very painful justice, which could have been avoided had they taken the loss differently.

lyle

Anything any of JOM jazz/fusion guitar buffs want me to ask Larry about? 😎

Jane

So Assange likes Trump, or is trying to romance him enough to screw Wolff.

Buckeye

Daddy, my Chinese friends NEVER drink the water unless it is boiled.

Captain Hate

Ext, what I quoted was from AoS by the commenter Maritime.

In case you want to know if I regret no longer watching Rupert's Sunday Infotainment Hour, watch the embedded video at what a hectoring scold Chris Wallace is to Mike Pompeo:

Ask him who his favorite guitarists are. What are his rigs? Does he have any rock n roll guitar favorites. And lastly, can I have some of his guitars?? Oh, and his guitars, can I have a few. Lyle and if you have time, ask him to ship them to me.

Buckeye

Lyle, ask Larry who he likes to collaborate with, and for a memorable experience from it.

Davod

"Btw, from the prior thread, that professor is "internationally known"

Russia, China, North Korea, Mexico (Especially Mexico)!

simply stupid

My daughter had a writing assignment and titled Flight 93 which evoked the Michael Anton essay for the 2016 election. Funny we have not had any polls on are we heading in right or wrong direction. I do not care if the captain is alunatic as long as he is steering in the right direction and that is why this Wolff kerfuffle is just a distraction to Trump making the course correction that we desperately needed.

boatbuilder

I hope that you and Maritime are right about the justice, Ext. I am skeptical and I don't think there will be any "acceptance" on that score either.

Clarice Feldman

Wash 'em, daddy.As for China, I had an uncle who served in India during wwii and his rule when traveling in 3d world countries was eat only peanuts in the shell and drink only beer.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jane,

Regarding Assange and the book pdf:

1. I think this actually qualifies as theft, although it is sort of like someone stealing a sack of trash.

2. How did he get the pdf? Hacking? Aggravated person within the publishing house?

3. It will divert sales because curious readers will go to the pdf rather than waiting for a sold out book to arrive in a later shipment.

4. If the book is on Kindle, did they hack Kindle?

Kevlar Kid

Been weaning from all the opioids taken since July 29, 2017.

Had a pretty tough run the past 10 days. Three nights this past week I was suitable framing for a "Just Say No!" poster for a Nancy Reagan anti-drug campaign.

I've chosen to go it alone and not participate in this newfangled "support" program here in California where the "provider" promises to get you off the opioids in exchange for an amount of personal information that is nothing short of criminally invasive.

I have a proven strategy for getting it done right the first time without releasing private information to state subsidized medical outfits with zero accountability.

MENG DA is an herb of Thai origins. The FDA banned Meng Da capsules but has permitted the ongoing sale of meng da powder online. The wisdom behind that strategy is for somebody else to figure out.

I took Meng Da for 6 years during the time I prescribed vicodin for diabetic neuropathy pain. Over 6 years my dosage never increased.

In the first month of neuropathy hell, my vicodin scrip dosage doubled. A Chinese herbalist showed me all I needed to know about Meng Da.

Meng da allows one to stop taking an opioid and suffer no side effects (which are HELLISH). It allows the metabolism to reset and keeps dosage levels level without creeping increases that become the real killing factor should those continue to increase.

My first half pound of Meng da arrives tomorrow. And I'll stop taking the oids. Pain is like a dull ache or soreness. Very tolerable. In about a month I should put this all behind me. Drink the meng da tea and continue thanking GrandFather for the Gift of Life.

I have been feeling raggedy the past two weeks but there is a sunlight around the edges of this little portrait of Kevlarvian bliss. They said I would never walk again.

I walked Anya the Voonder Hoont 2.75 miles this morning with Mrs Kid.

This has been one of the most memorable stories of triumph ever in my unfolding story. The Good Guys are winnin'.

Notre Dame kicked the stink out of of Michigan State during the reg season. I mean, we kicked them hard. But, what is even better is that ND doesn't have to split the bowl purse with a conference--- at least that's how it went in the old days.

All good. I had bigger feesh to fry and I dun fried em.

Great Pieces today, Clarice Feldman. Great.

Oh the shame of their hubris. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of thieves.


MAGA!

Extraneus

Interesting, Rocco. I've spent time on the inside of a prison, in Green Haven, NY, where I once tutored a probability and statistics course. The electric chair was moved there from Ossining many years ago, in fact, but hasn't been used since even before then.

Those high-security inmates were always asking me to bring in cigarettes or pot, or asking for news about current events. Talking about the latter could get pretty dicey, too, and some of them were like 6'8" and really not happy.

"You m'fers have more degrees than a thermomoter," was how one conversation ended right before the guard let me out of the room.

My ex-wife's late father was a warden in upstate NY, too.

Jack is Back!

Lyle,

You can ask him "Who are you and why should I care?" For me:) I have no idea who he is unless he is Steve Carlton's son or cousin or even brother.

Manuel Transmission

Amom, and any others who have been interested in some of the hit/miss discussions about alternate meds and mental repairs, The LUN is a 2-hr discussion about all things fungi/mushrooms. About 90 pct of it is over my head, but just following the many side topics related to what this guy, Paul Stamets has been doing for the last four decades is amazing. It is so broad in scope that the Terrance McKenna side trip to the Stoned Ape hypothesis is just a curiosity.

Paul indicates that there has been a lot of recent research that is opening up major new avenues in health, as well as better understanding of our natural environment and how it interacts with us.

Good luck, Kev and thanks.

BTW, wanted to note that Tony Romo is one good color guy. He is a more easy to listen to expert than a Gruden. But he is also 100% more listenabe than Aikman who sounds like an Arkansas hillybilly reading from a Topps card.

Tony really explains the plays, strategy and outcomes better than any guy I have heard on the NFL. Makes every play more interesting.

Joe DiGenova radio interview. Please listen to Joe without reading CTH so that you can see what he thinks.

daddy

Now since you have to have an origin story I think this might work. Jerry's in the car driving "mom" the jalopy home from the "Brew Your Own At Home" supply store, and he's got the new carboy in the back seat. Suddenly an autonomous driving Tesla or Prius, take your pick, swerves through an intersection and totals "Mom."

Jerry wakes up in the hospital in traction with a helluva headache and a bit of amnesia, the cute Nurse telling him he has been rambling incoherently about his Mother being some sort of Car. The news broken that the jalopy is totaled completely clobbers him, yet when he returns home with the few items recovered from the crash and starts brewing a batch of consoling Apple cider, suddenly as the carboy bubbles start popping he vaguely hears his Momma's voice thru the pops---"Jerry, Jerry there's too much hops in your IPA."

So, is our main character Jerry a

A) A Newspaper editor in upstate New York?

B) An ALLCAPS guitar god from flyover country?

C) A dog walking mother of 2 Flight Attendant in a neck brace?

D) A Conservative beer drinking Econ prof on the upper East side?

E) A cat loving mystery writer from DC?

or

F) A BlogMaster from Connecticut with too much free time on his hands?


Suggestions welcome!

Lyle, I was unfair about Larry and him giving me his guitars. I apologize. I only want ALL of his GIBSON ES335'S. Can you arrange that?? I'll pay for shipping.

matt- deplore me if you must

So I go away for a day or two and the whole shebang goes to hell.

1- daddy, open the container, toss the contents into the garbage disposal, and drink the tequila.

2 - KK - kudos!! kicking opiods is a bitch. let me know if you need help or if the Chinese wonder drugs works.

3 - The Wolff book is the same shit Bannon was leaking a year ago and not one of the media yahoos has pointed this out. Why? Because their Russia narrative is a steaming pile of horse manure (especially with those East Coast temperatures).

4 - MT, tried the fungi in the mid 70's. Threw up and they didn't work as advertised.

5 - e mailed the Yale prof and chided her as a member of a County Mental Health Board. She should know better and in fact her disgnosis is purely political. The way Trump has been yankin' the media's chain is, in fact, one sin of true genius.

matt- deplore me if you must

Glad to see the Farm Bureau speech. I know he's been busy, but we have heard a lot about manufacturing and not very much about farmers.

From Miss M's 06:57 from Sundance:

Additionally, and in complete concurrence with our prior research, DiGenova states first-hand knowledge that FISA Court Judge Rudolph Contreras did not recuse himself – but was rather forcibly recused from the Michael Flynn case by either U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts or the aggregate FISA court.

Interesting if true. I did not listen to DiGeneva's radio interview yet as Miss M suggested. Hopefully later.

Saints win. Sack Newtown at 4th and 23. Wonder what his outfit will be a the presser? A little black dress and hair parted down the middle?

Momto2

daddy - always wash the berries - have you ever watched the berry pickers down in Florida? (I'll leave it to your imagination - some porta-potties are not being used IYKWIM)

I withdraw option C as Jerry has been identified as a "he" and C as a "mother of 2" which could possibly be reconciled by today's cultural standards but it might destroy the original '60's vibe.

President Trump will be in Georgia tomorrow for the game! Naturally, the first local articles are about the "expected" protestors! What about the "expected" supporters???

Never wash anything--like anonamom am trying to put down a nice base of bacteria. After four kids, I am in a pretty fair way of achieving this goal even if I did ever wash anything, which I'm not going to do.

daddy

(G) A hateful Airdale owner in Cleaveland, Ahia?

Thanks for the suggestion, Jack! That was on the tip of my tongue, as was many, many more:)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

daddy,

It's pretty easy to listen to as Joe has picked up good habits on explaining things to non-lawyers, no doubt from his days commenting on the Clinton Impeachment.

He sounds absolutely certain that dossier was used, and chalks up these other stories as panicky efforts to deflect. Knowingly presenting false evidence is a felony, and he believes Comey, McCabe, Lynch and some guy in the DOJ as well as one FISA judge will be facing jail.

Now it could be that he knows stuff, given his contacts in DC. It also could be that he is either intentionally or unwittingly leaking something not quite proven in order to scare people into flipping. I have no idea. Interesting to think about, though.

The Infamous Ignatz

Exdom from the last thread;

...what bugs me is that in removing the delta between "extremely careless" and "grossly negligent" (significant as that is) we don't stop short of the real issue:
that Clinton and the left went off the book for a purpose - to mask criminality and venality - not simply because they were 'grossly negligent.'
Qua MM, it's that purpose - rather than mere 'negligence' - that the masses may respond to with pitchforks.

Egg. Zactly.
I think what bothers me most about this whole thing is the blanket acceptance that Comey should have found her grossly negligent.
She wasn't. Her actions, and her co-conspirators' actions demonstrate beyond any doubt their actions were calculated and willful.
They didn't carelessly handle those emails. They purposely tried to get them off grid. The willful mishandling of classified info is subject to rather stiffer penalties and IMO it far closer fits the facts than negligence.
She is pretty gross though.

Chill out

Anyone else think Jack has early onset something?

Or early drinking issues?

'Cause, man does he get shitty with friends for no reason.

daddy

I withdraw option C as Jerry has been identified as a "he" and C as a "mother of 2" which could possibly be reconciled by today's cultural standards but it might destroy the original '60's vibe.

Momto2,

I was coming at it from a Patrick O'Brian Social Justice angle, plus since you were already wearing a neck brace from a car crash...:)

I was thinking in your case Carboy Mom could speak dog to the pups, so they would come and act some way around you which would cause you to indignantly say to your beer bottle Mom, MOTHER! like Samantha used to in BeWitched: and each episode would take off from there.

It's not completely baked yet. Let me run it through my pal, Harvey Weinstein.

Rocco

Ex, Wow, I bet your ex f-i-l could tell some interesting stories in his day. When they stopped the smoking, officers used to smuggle chewing tobacco in and spit in the small wastebaskets next to their desks. The inmates would clean up the area and sneak the trashbag with the spit in it, back to their cell and strain the spit and then roll really thin joint shaped cigarettes using toilet paper wrapper. Wash the nuts people!

I am watching Wise Guys on Fox. It has an interesting discussion on and seems to be about ideas. Recommend watching the rerun.
