matt - deplore me if you must

Man U beats City; Shohei Otani throws a perfect game into the 7th. A new guy at the Masters. Not bad.

henry

I blame mayonnaise for all these setbacks.

MM,

Immigration lawyer is best bet, before they do anything else. Years ago a co-worker met and fell in love with and Irish girl here illegally. They went through all the paperwork first. Tons of paperwork, but it was approved relatively soon.

Funny part is that a few years after the marriage they decided to live in Dublin.

Harriet the Spy loved tomato and mayo sandwiches, for what is it worth.

PB and bananas is wonderful, especially if the bread is toasted so the PB gets just a tad melty. Haven't had one for 45 years, but you know what you know.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

jim nj.

Thanks. That confirms what I thought. They don't have the money to fight a long legal battle if it gets messed up, and I don't want her moving to Mexico (which probably would consider HER illegal).

My family life is SO complicated!

My Brewers lost 5 of 7 on their homestand, and were MIRACLE WHIPPED in shutouts 3 times.

Of course you are correct Lovely Miss M. They come here for love, not the other way round.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Well, GUS, I don't know how to take what you said.

My daughter loves him and he loves her, and I love my daughter and want her to be happy.

That's about all there is to it.

Rocco

Why would Assad draw the ire of the whole world against him? It doesn't make sense to me.

narcisocenfl

There was a meeting with Iran and Russia, two of his sponsors along with turkey some days ago.

gentlejim

MM,
I read GUS’ comment as a dig at Jeb not your daughter or fiancé. I agree with you if she went to Mexico that they would not welcome her with open arms. I hope things work out for them quickly.

Apparently Assad doesn’t think he gets to dine with Jawn Effing Kerry and his ugly ass wife and to be photographed by Vanity Fair again, Rocco.

narcisocenfl

Yes kamala Harris gets this treatment now. Ugh,

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I don't know what to think about Assad and that chemical attack.

Many of the smart people i follow think it is as advertised.

Then there is another group who thinks it is a false flag.

I am mystified and worried about the entire situation, regardless of which view is correct.

Rocco

President Trump announces he wants to bring the troops home and Assad breaks out the WMD? Does he want us to stay? And would Russia allow this? I wonder!

Millions of viewers of Sinclair stations have no idea that they’re watching conservative editorials rather than normal local news — giving the company incredible power to persuade viewers.

Let's see, NPR, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, "news sections" of the NYT, LAT, WaPo,....

I'd almost suspect Vox is on our side, since the reaction to this is so obvious.

A commenter at Insty, regarding Williamson. I remember Derbyshire but not the others.
"NR has fired over thought crimes a veritable who's who of people on the right who are right about immigration and the cultural wars waged by the left. Derbyshire, Sailer, Steyn, Coulter...to name a prominent few."

jimmyk

Had an eventful day: First we learned a friend of ours, just 50, had some kind of cardiac event and was rushed to the hospital Friday night. She seems to be ok now, though unclear what the prognosis is. My wife visited her today in the hospital, and was relating all this to daughter and me at dinner, and daughter started saying, "Please don't discuss this over dinner, I'm starting to feel sick..." and she got up from the table, and then fainted, out cold, falling with a thud, hitting her head. She was ok, but took a few minutes to get her wits about her. We had to get her legs raised up and let her lie there for five minutes or so.

This is about the fourth 'vasovagal' incident she's had, but the first in about 3 years. Still scary, even though this time we knew what it was.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Dave (in MA),

Thanks for the correction. I apologize for posting a counterfeit - it sure looked real on my Twitter feed.

I do wish people wouldn't do stuff like that.

Reports of planes overflying Lebanon and troop movement by US.

Assad has repeatedly bombed his own people with various illegal gas compounds. Chlorine, I think some mustard, and I'm not sure what else. He is a monster.

If we could figure out where he was at a given time perhaps we could drop a couple of deep penetrators down his throat.

Remember, Obama drew his line in the sand and then Assad used gas again and again. We will see how Trump and our military react.

Certainly we need to be careful. Note this snip from an Insty post.

"He doesn’t deny that he intentionally fools people. But Blair says he does so for an unusual reason — because he’s a hard-core Democrat, a “liberal troll” with a mission of undercutting the far right. His work, he says, is satire, meant to expose what he views as the bigotry and hypocrisy of those willing to accept his inflammatory fictions as truth. And he claims that it is working, that he — with the aid of an army of about 100 other liberal trolls — has actually helped stanch the tide of fake news online."

Gulf cooperation council headed by the kingdom works in contact with the UAE Bahrain and Oman

sbw

Jane, GCC is the Gulf Cooperation Council -- a group allied to face down terror in the Middle East, mostly fomented by Iran.

Thomas Wictor has tweeted numerous times to suggest their multi-level skills in small commando units.

Their calling cards seem to be evident in Hezbollah tunnel collapse, loss of officers, etc.

Very interesting, if true.

rich

What is GCC?

Gulf Cooperation Council ... an economic and defense agreement among some Persian Gulf monarchies.

sbw

GCC is particularly interesting in light of SA Crown Prince Salman, Trump, and Netanyahu.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jane,

GCC is the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Members: The United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and Kuwait, and in 2009, Yemen joined the Organization, which is headquartered at Doha, Qatar.

Thomas Wictor has detailed their commando troops, which are very impressive.

Buckeye

Jimmyk,

Am I correct in thinking your daughter is in high school (teenager)?

Is she slender build?

Is she active such that she might get dehydrated?

Jr. had several episodes of vasovagal fainting as a teenager. You might push the docs to do a tilt table test. They used that to diagnose Jr.'s issue and rule out something more serious.

He"grew out of it".

I have had 3 episodes myself that I recall. 2 as a teenager, and most recent 1 about 2 years ago, doc said dehydration.

sbw

Joan, re your self-described “dark” comment from the end of the previous thread, I don’t find it dark; I find it fair warning.

dehydration

Also electrolytes. Strange things can happen with low sodium.

The Infamous Ignatz

If we are in Syria in furtherance of a strategy to deny our mortal enemies in Iran an ally; good.

If we're there for pretty much any other reason; bad.

jimmyk

Buckeye, we had her checked out 3 years ago after the first incidents. She's athletic, very low resting heart rate. The cardiologist checked her out and said nothing to worry about, though I don't know that they did the 'tilt table' test. We'd thought she'd already grown out of it, but obviously not quite.:) She'll be 17 in a couple of weeks.

The Infamous Ignatz

I appreciate the left making it impossible for GOPe type dopes to ignore their now open calls for the end of self governance and a free republic.
The only thing California is showing the way to is a bloody civil war that more than likely the left will be slaughtered in.

Too many on the right do not take the left's totalitarian temptation seriously.
Too many on the left do not take the right's intention of killing the left when it finally usurps self governance irretrievably.
Of the two the left is in for a much nastier education. I don't say that in eager anticipation but merely as an observation of reality.

narciso

Yikes mediate seems stupider than usual today, I haven't looked at Yahoo because Edward munsch might ensue.

Buckeye

jimmyk, the cardiologist would likely not screw up the diagnoses.

I do think it is likely dehydration or like sbw said, an electrolyte imbalance, both of which occur with athletes frequently.

Yeah, we definitely got that advice, and for a while we would remind her. But after a year or two we thought she'd grown out of it. Plus teenagers aren't known for listening to their parents.

Yeah, clarice, even though she's not really sick, and we knew what it was, those few seconds when she's out with her eyes wide open are still a bit frightening.

Her mom had the same thing when she was a teen, even into her early 20s, and I'm not shy about assigning genetic blame.
