The Italian Stallion recovers from his Round 12 loss, JimNorCal, to retake the lead. However, if Caruana and Karjakin end up tied for first at the end of Round 14 (which would happen if Caruana ties, Karjakin wins and Mamedyarov doesn't win), I believe Karjakin gets the nod based on 1 1/2 to 1/2 head to head against Caruana. I haven't figured out what would happen if Caruana, Karjakin and Mamedyarov end up in a three way tie.

Dopey kids won’t do anything about guns in the future.
They will be too busy trying to make us buy electric cars.
Hogg didn’t get in his college choices because his SAT scores were too low.
However Berkeley or Oberlin might take him.

From Catsmeat on the last thread:

I am catching up at the end of a day enjoyably preparing Barchester Towers for teaching. Great book.

It is! I think I've shared before that I was reading Dr. Thorne while in labor with kid #3. Sadly, I've never picked it up again. Time to get going.

If you like the political aspects of "who will be the new bishop, dean, warden, etc.?" I also highly recommend The Masters by C.P. Snow, which chronicles the election of a Cambridge college head. A more serious novel, but fascinating. I love the Strangers and Brothers sequence.

Thoughts about Hillary running in 2020:

1. She wants to keep influence money flowing into the Foundation.

2. She wants to be able to say any indictments are politically motivated.

3. The dems are going to use her as a willing sacrifice.

I've lived in this country for years and for years 2nd amendment advocates told me that they needed their guns to stand against potential tyrannical governments intent on taking away their freedom. Fine.Good deal.But happened when a foreign adversary attacked us and undermined our said freedom??????2nd amenders hid in their own piss and prayed for the red threat to pass.

So, when I go to President Trump's Twitter page to see if he has any new tweets, on the upper right Twitter has given me 3 suggestions on who to follow:

Hillary Clinton
Barack Obama
CNN

Gosh, I can't imagine why I think they lean left.

James D.

I have to say, based on this article, the state of Texas has a lot to answer for:

What's a 4.2 GPA?

As I recall from my year of Recruiting Duty in the Seattle area looking for potential Navy pilots, Evergreen University, site of many recent Prog protests, did not issue grades---they issued individual writeups for the student from an evaluator of each course. That said, i think Hogg's rejection due to his GPA was probably racist (White Male) because any of his CNN bonafides should have guaranteed him a full ride scholarship at any of those bullshit schools due to his politics, if reported properly. I claim racism and am outraged that Iggy, Frau, TK, CentralCal, DrJ, jimnorcal, ExDem, Ext, Kevlar, and Ed, and anybody else I missed don't have the privelege of coughing up dough to pay for this kid's tuition.

maryrose

I agree with Romney and yes , he is to the right of President Trump on this issue.

Ralph L

Speaking of coughing up dough, why does Fred put you up in central Paree instead of an airport hotel? Or do you get per diem?

Ralph L

I don't recall Mitt's stance in 2012, but it was probably wide. Must check with Sara squigler.

maryrose

He , Hogg probably took some honors or AP courses to bump his gpa up over 4.0.
But you are correct, he is the wrong color.

jimmyk

I thought 4.2 comes from the fact that some schools now give A+ grades, which count as 4.33. A response to grade inflation.

James D.

I've seen that as well, jimmyk.

Buckeye

They also give more than a 4.0 for "A" score in AP and IB classes.

Both of my kids graduated with north of 4.0 GPAs.

Their dad can make no such claim:)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Regarding Hogg's grades.

I wonder if his school uses not the 4-point system (A, B, C, D) but the 6-point system (A, B, C+, C, C-, D). That is what my high school used.

In that case, his GPA would be a little over a C+, which isn't that great.

So how does it play out? 9th will say it is illegal and the census comes and goes before SCOTUS chimes in?

Posted by: Old Lurker

I'm more interested in if Trump can start constructing the Wall on Monday or if the 9th Circuit Court etc have the power to hold up the building of the Wall. Can Trump continue building while his legal Team constucts a legally sufficient reason why he can legally build it, or do the Court's expected pronouncements stimy building until Trump provides the Court a legally sufficient reason to build it?

Captain Hate

Tammy is blasting Paris for allowing antisemitism to fester in muslim immigrants until they go jihadi on Holocaust survivors.

Kevlar Kid

A 4.2 out of 5.0 GPA is the equivalent of a 3.36/4.0 GPA. Hogg is not a good student....a balance of A's and C's get a 3.0 average....so he had a few more A's than C's. A 1270 SAT is below the CAL BERKELEY 75th percentile mean SAT of 1340.

URRRNT! Thanks for playing Hoggboy. Cal State Northridge awaits you.

Buckeye "Both of my kids graduated with north of 4.0 GPAs. Their dad can make no such claim:)"

"However Berkeley or Oberlin might take him."

Miss Marple the Deplorable

According to Sarah, the Wall is under construction NOW. She got a couple of people asking her about the military building it, but she said when she had more information she would let them know. Then a guy who I believe works for the Weekly Standard asked if the President was aware that he had to get Congressional approval to move money, which I believe is wrong if DoD declares it a national security risk (which Trump has done several times both in speeches and on Twitter) and the opioid crisis also enters into this as well as a security risk.

I believe they have already gotten approval to waive environmental stuff and so that won't be an issue.

Then some jerk in the back row asked how Mexico would pay for the wall and how the base (quoting the loathsome Ann Coulter) would consider it a promise broken if Mexico didn't pay, and again, Sarah said when they had the information they would tell the press.

Almost the entire rest of the press consisted of various questions about Stormy Daniels, his legal team, why he hasn't tweeted today, etc. Sarah cut it short and left adn I don't blame her one bit.

The 6 point grading system is new to me and I have been in education for 35 years.
Each school gives a copy of their grading to the prospective colleges.
He needed higher test scores for such competitive schools.
Perhaps his recent behavior will pave the way for him somewhere.
He and his big mouth would be lost at a big state university,
Also what courses did he take?
Clay works and art classes can boost a grade point but unless art is the major be discounted.

Re Trump and Stormy. As is the case with everything else these days, allegations of erotic dalliance activities have been dumbed down.
