I am hoping for a Walker/Christie ticket. Primarily because they are both competent governors. I would even support Nicki Haley, Martinez as VP or Jindal. They know how to get things done and are wonderful executves.
When you look at the dems-they have nothing...no bench just misguided Hillary hopes.

You don't need much, when you have a decree.

Captain Hate

I am hoping for a Walker/Christie ticket.

That would work for me. Fat RINO Bastard is a very good campaigner and would make a decent VP where he would aggressively defend Walker's policies whether he agrees with them or not.

Anybody know where a person can buy a cheap wood chipper? I'm asking for a friend...

Anyone know where you can see the VA whistleblower hearing that starts at 7:30? It does not appear to be on Cspan.

MaryD

LOL, Stephanie! You have totally captured the spirit of the inquiry.

Captain Hate

Jane congratulations for whichever person you know having a child; is it your niece?

Jane

Nevermind, it is on Cspan, just not scheduled.

MaryD

Late to the party, but Congratulation to Aunt Jane!

Congratulations Aunt Jane!
I bet you will spoil that child rotten as is your purpose.

totally agree wrt your disciplining children and their experiencing consequences for their actions. I remember assigning a time-out to his room for my son and giving him my watch so he would know when the consequence was over. He learned how to tell time that way.

I well remember the Elian tale, they were in a darn hurry to render him back to Cuba, as state property, so he could become a Young Pioneer that was probably when I learned to loath the perky Katie, and Blather, 'Eighteen

MarkO

Because Hillary is a liar, perhaps we cannot believe this admission that she took the case as a favor:


In “Living History,” Clinton wrote that the criminal court judge appointed her, and that she “couldn’t very well refuse the judge’s request.” The 2008 Newsday story quotes then-Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson who refers to her as being “appointed by the Circuit Court of Washington County.” However, in the newly-released audio tapes Clinton says a prosecutor for the case asked to take the case “as a favor to him.”

Anyone who has the time must watch the VA hearings. The witnesses are all MDs and are extremely impressive and credible. Their testimony is devastating to the VA. I will be interested to see how the Dems handle this.

Rob Crawford

Did he thank them for the loan of their voters?

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

So far, all have testified without notes in their opening statements. I have watched a ton of congressional hearings. Seldom does this happen in my experience.

Miss Marple

Jim Rhoads, is it on now? If so, it is not on my c-SPAN. Which one, 1,2, or 3?

Jane

Hey you guys it's AUNTEE Jane (and not the bug, the Boston way)

I was on the phone so I missed all but Scott Davis who linked it directly to the WH I think. Is that what you saw Jim?

Jane

Capn'

It's my niece Paige who I'm about as close as I could be to. Both she and her sister lived with me at different points of their lives, and they are as close to "my" children as I will ever get.

Jane

It's on Cspan 2.

Danube on iPad

Does anyone think that "sending the national guard" to the border would stanch the flow? I don't. Once they're on U.S. soil the law forbids ending them home without a hearing. What's the Guard going to do?

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

See TK's 7:34 for link to hearing.

Jane

Holy cow, this hearing is amazing.

Miss Marple

The key to stopping this is stopping them BEFORE they get here.

That means leaning on Mexico and offering to help. Like that would happen.

I am dead certain that Obama's minions have been gaming this and the flood will continue until we get enough votes in the Senate to pass legislation. And we will have to convince enough dems to override Obama's veto.

In my opinion, we do not want to look like we hate immigrant children. Let's talk about how they will never be reunited with their families if they are spread all over the US with no adequate ID.

Let's talk about how many could be taken by unscrupulous people and sold into sexual slavery.

Let's talk about how many died in the desert or were kidnapped or murdered or raped on the way here.

And let us also point out that school systems, already over-taxed, cannot support the addition of 2-300 illiterate children who do not speak English and who possibly have serious health problems.

rich@gmu

the Gov hit all the right notes in her op ed.

the GOPe picked the mistake by the lake. have fun captain hate and maryrose.

and what happened to Chubby, a commenter here for a while?

rich@gmu

>>>What's the Guard going to do?<<<

I guess shooting them would make for bad optics. How about a few engineering battalions to start work on a fence-a real fence, not a fake virtual fence? A few MP battalions to take our uninvited guests to uncomfortable tents in the desert?

One question that has come to mind though is has the diplomatic representatives of the countries sending "the kids" over been allowed to inspect the camps?

I'm cynical enough that I have no doubt those already here are staying and will vote Dem in 2014.

Laura White

Saw Dinesh D'Souza's America today. 10 in the godalmighty am. Only about 30 viewers but they all clapped--a very rare thing in this decorous wing of the Midwest.

Danube on iPad

"How about a few engineering battalions to start work on a fence-a real fence, not a fake virtual fence?"

How long would that take?

"A few MP battalions to take our uninvited guests to uncomfortable tents in the desert?"

Which will promptly be displayed on the nightly news and enjoined by the courts.

My solution is to amend existing law so that all illegal entrants can be treated the same as those from Mexico and Canada: reject them immediately. Let the buses and planes start moving.

Jane

I can't wait to see it Laura. It's not playing around here yet.

Well congratulations to Paige and I assume, perhaps erroneously, her husband and all close relatives.

Captain Hate on the iPad

I'm on board for DoT's solution. Is the opposition party up to it?

Laura White

D'Souza adds at almost the very end and pretty subtly his own DOJ prosecution-he admits making a mistake, but his point is a quotation from the infamous Beria--"show me the man, I'll show you the crime."

Rick B

I believe I'd toss in a $250 per day per head reduction in aid to Mexico plus a $250 per day per head reduction in aid to the home country on top of the immediate return status. Tent city internment near the border for those who reject immediate return. Double fence the internment camps just to be sure.

"Is the opposition party up to it?"

I have hardly heard mention of it. Boehner is talking about sending the Guard, although I haven't heard him say what the Guard should do.

rich@gmu

daddy might get a kick out of this bit of Alaskan history ... the AlCan Highway.

http://web.mst.edu/~rogersda/umrcourses/ge342/Alcan%20Highway-revised.pdf

a few I didn't knows: 3 of the engineering battalions were colored regiments and it took an act of congress because they were in a unified command.

the military effort: 8 months, 11 days; 1543 miles

opened Nov 20 1942. some of the original wooden bridges were used until the 80's.

The professor who coined the term "permafrost" was brought in as a consultant. He literally wrote the book on building in that environment.

why can't we build a border fence again?

Jane on Ipad

Costco changed its mind. I'm shocked. America is currently #1 on Amazon.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Rick, I'd also have the $2B that 404 requested for the poor urchins to come out of a reduction in the DoJ and IRS's allocation, if not the staff of the JEF. It's for the children; surely they will pony up eagerly.

rich@gmu

why not fund it as a tax of international remittances? 40%-50%.

rich, my grandparents drove the Al-Can highway back in the late50's, when it was still gravel. They drove it all the way to the end. I have a slide of Fairbanks in the mid-50's, which looked to be a small town with a few stores and a bunch of Ford trucks.

They were schoolteachers in their early 50's. They took a station wagon with air mattresses and slept in the car. Both had grown up on farms and were outdoors types.

I am very proud of their adventurous spiritand glad I have some of their slides.

rich@gmu

Posted by: Captain Hate on the iPad | July 08, 2014 at 09:09 PM<<<

Of course not, it would not pass muster with the Chamber of Commerce.

DoT-

It would take a long time to build a fence so it won't get built. Just like we have been told over and over again it would take 10 years to get oil from ANWR ... oh about 16 years ago.

Tents in the desert would be nice but obviously that isn't going to happen, even for the liars claiming they are 16, when in fact, they are 32 and tatted up head-to-toe.

Changing the law isn't going to happen with this congress and obviously wouldn't be signed by this president.

Captain Hate on the iPad

FYI I got a call from my cardiologist confirming what I and everybody else assumed and I passed my stress test. Also my doctor referred me to a physical therapy place for my recalcitrant Achilles' tendon. Have I told any of you how much I like dealing with PTs? Neither of the two I've dealt with have their doctorates (unlike Dr Hatette) but they've done a world of good in a short period of time for what had been a very nagging injury. I had a bit of ultrasound treatment to it to stimulate blood flow over the small amount it normally receives. I make them tell me how frequently and how many reps to do the various stretching and strengthening exercises they prescribe, telling them otherwise I'll slack off.

rich@gmu

Miss Marple-

that sounds like they had an adventure. glad you have some of the slides. an elderly relative of mine worked on the Pipeline and I've been meaning to ask if he has a pictures from his time there.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

I am totally delighted that your stress test was negative for heart disease, CH.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Thank you, rich; please don't call Cleveland the mistake by the lake. I'm asking you that as a friendly request because it's bothered me ever since I first started living here. The area has plenty of problems which I can quote chapter and verse but having grown up in Laurel, Maryland, frankly I'm glad my children were raised here.

A few members of the Horde pissed me off today about that *and* about the river burning. I took it out on one pest who was overdue for corrective action.

Danube on iPad

Great news from both CH and Jane.

I'm not against a fence. My point is that it would do nothing to resolve the immediate problem.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Thanks all.

Letterman invites Joan Rivers on his show so he can walk out on her. I never thought he was funny. Now he's just a miserable old curmudgeon.

He loves himself some Obama.

I won't even affix a link. Who cares?

rich@gmu

DoT-

if their way back home is being obstructed, they might self deport if the fence were a serious effort. and a big enough effort (like the AlCan highway effort) would put so many eyes on the border few would want to attempt to cross.

It isn't going to happen anyway so I guess it is pointless to speculate.

rich@gmu

Captain Hate-

noted and apologies.

Jane on Ipad

One small development. I've noticed that when people raise the issue of impeachment, no one is screaming "racist".

Stephanie

At the story’s center is the Mississippi Conservatives PAC, which is on the receiving end of furious charges of race-baiting against insurgent candidate Chris McDaniel and the Tea Party as a whole. But an even bigger problem comes from evidence that the group calling itself Mississippi Conservatives was anything but, illustrating in stunning detail how the establishments and donors of the Republican and Democratic parties intermingle.

Let’s begin over at the Federal Election Commission. Thirty-seven people have donated to Mississippi Conservatives 51 times — and 36 of those donations were for more than $5,000. Let’s just talk about these high-rollers. A full 55 percent of them have either 1) given money directly to prominent Democrats; or 2) given money to other PACs from which it seems to have flowed to Democratic candidates. Yes, you read that right. More than half of the high-dollar donors to this so-called Mississippi Conservatives group had previously given money to help elect Democrats. And not just the distant past, but recently — including Senate races targeted this very year by the GOP.

CH is right. Cleveland is not the "mistake by the lake". That honor belongs to my home town, Erie, PA. Since I was a little bit, we always referred to our sometimes great home town as "dreary Erie, the Mistake by the Lake".

The time for impeachment is long gone because the Constitution which contemplates it is long gone.
We don't need impeachment.
We need an insurrection.

A circus "trial" in the Senate will do nothing to restore our country anymore than the Roman Circus restored their Republic.
A majority of the Senators' heads on pikes will do a great deal.
I hope I live long enough to see it.

Once upon a time my city, Idnianapolis, was known as "Naptown."

In the early 70's, there was nothing open downtown after 6PM except a couple of bars in hotels. You could roll a bowling ball down the sidewalk and never hit one person.

Mayor Hudnut, who followed Mayor Lugar, had a vision of using amateur sports to bring business to Indianapolis. We hosted several tournaments and then got the Pan Am games at the last minute when the original host in South America couldn't do it financially.

We also got the Colts, having built a domes stadium when we had no team, moved the Pacers to a new stadium after Market Square Arena was closed, and moved the minor league ballpark into a new field on the edge of downtown.

When you visit the city now, it has all sorts of activity, sidewalk cafes, shops open, horses and carriages, etc. We do quite a bit of convention business, too.

I credit Mayor Hudnut for the vision of what the city could be.
