Thank you, Captain @ 10:14, that was my reaction too. And hello, from outside the naughty box.

You took quite a risk taunting typepad like that, peter.

Yes, there is no such thing as a bad serial killer.

Correction (as if anyone here beside me cares:) but Mourhino has only 3 BPL titles while at Chelsea.

Dear God, Kasich is bragging about Cleveland schools which are complete crap. I can see the Romney RINO brigade uniting behind this doofus.

Representative Donna Edwards is backing Mosby's stupidity.

It was clear that she is a big part of the reason Baltimore is in such trouble.

He's talking about his victory over that loser Fitzgerald as if that was an indication that conservatives didn't hold their noses while voting for him.

Clarice

Speaking of false narratives. It has been confirmed that FBI director Robert Mueller and Attorney General John Ashcroft asked Deputy Secretary of State Dick Armitage, his boss Colin Powell, and State Dept. attorney William H. Taft not to tell the public that Armitage was Bob Novak's source in outing Valerie Plame as a CIA employee. Mueller and Ashcroft did this long before Patrick Fitzgerald was appointed "Special Counsel".

Clarice, when are you going to correct the false narrative that it was Fitzgerald who told Armitage to keep it to himself?

Thanks for the fight recap, hit. Your assessment seems to match the reviews I've seen online: it was extremely entertaining. But only for the boxers' bank accounts. :)

Panel on Rodham: Hume: more damaging data that the grifters haven't changed. Stolberg: Sanders won't win and she's upset that Princess Running Joke won't run. Will: Fat RINO Bastard has been hurt by Jeb running. Juan: republican party is fractured. Hume: Jeb hasn't been a good campaigner.

And that's a wrap.

The Mayor of Baltimore is wearing out her Random Platitude Generator. She's in miles over her head.

And her citizens are equally clueless. One said that Balitmore suffers from systematic disinvestment. Those evil capitalists!! O'Malley starts off with the usual leftist bullshit, too. 'We haven't had an agenda for America's cities.' Yeah, he actually said that. And now sending profits abroad. What a f*cking retard.

This much is true: there can be no reconciliation between people who think and act like those mentioned above and traditional America. It simply can't be done.

Good afternoon, all.

It's a beautiful day here and I just came in briefly to get some water. Been doing long-overdue yard work, which will probably take me a month to finish.

I am listening to the birds, the breeze, and the occasional barking from my squirrel-chasing dogs.

It's much better for my health than thinking about Baltimore and the summer of race riots, which the WSJ says 96% of Americans believe is coming.

On a positive note, for gardeners, Bayer has a new weed and grass killer which not only kills vegetation but keeps it from coming back for 3 months! This is a godsend for areas like sidewalk cracks, the mulched area along my drive, areas around mulched trees, etc.

Abe Greenwald at Commentary on Brian Moore the cop shot in the head in Queens:

"Brian Moore, a 25 year old New York City police officer is in a medically induced coma in Jamaica Hospital. He was allegedly shot in the head by Demetrius Blackwell in Queens on Saturday night. What spurred the shooting? Here’s the New York Post: “Blackwell had been fiddling with his waistband, a source said. The officers [Moore and his partner] pulled up behind him, and Blackwell realized they were cops.” In other words, the cops were so good at their job that their suspicions were raised by the sight of a man adjusting his pants in a particular way that indicated he might have had a gun—and he did.

That’s what good vigilant police work is. It’s picking out what’s subtly wrong on the street and getting to the bottom of it. It’s also what, under other circumstances, would wrongly be called racist harassment. Blackwell is black, and if it turned out he didn’t have a gun and if the situation escalated in such a way that that he ended up in critical condition, we can well imagine the outrage that would follow: First black people are told to pull up their pants. Then, when they do, they get shot. The point is the overwhelming majority of cops—good, smart, brave cops—don’t harass black people for sport. They don’t harass, period. They act on hunches and experience and put their lives on the line over the slightest irregularity to prevent civilian deaths, both black and white. In this case, one shooter is now off the streets; Blackwell is in custody. But one cop is in a coma. He saw a thug adjust his pants and understood that his vow to protect the community overrides any fear of being called a racist. It’s the very definition of both physical and moral bravery. Pray for Brian Moore."

"Glyphosate something-or-other" is the ingredient to look for, MM. That the secret ingredient that made Roundup a household name. The patent expired on Monsanto so anyone can put it in their weed killer now.

There was(and probably still is) huge arguments over the chemicals used to draw the poison into the plant. I think they are called surfactants.

I can't remember where I read about it but what I did learn is I can go buy Don Cheapo vegetation killer from places like Tractor Supply Company and save a ton of dough.

Extraneus

Who gives a damn about inner-city race riots? Dem voters? What else would be the point?

Like I tell my son, the Dems need to stir up the blacks to get them to vote. Doesn't matter how, and blacks are kind of gullible when it comes to these things.

Not racist, just fact.

'Pixie's Produce', a little roadside vegetable stand at the lake had a sign out for heirloom tomatoes. Not an expert on growing stuff, but it seemed just a bit early in the year for tomatoes. And that turned out to be true - she said they were hot house heirlooms. Huh.

So I bought several: Beauty Queen, Black Krim, Daddy's Sunset and a Brandywine. Then I ran by the Publix for some fresh mozzarella. Chopped it all up, tossed it with some great extra virgin, sea salt, cracked pepper and a little basil. It wasn't perfect, but it was sure as heck good enough for defying the natural growing season! :)

Threadkiller,

I know about Round-up and the cheap knock-offs. The difference is that Bayer's product ALSO PREVENTS NEW WEEDS.

This is different and an advancement for dealing with the areas I described. Spraying with Round-up in those areas kills all the weeds. A couple of weeks later seedlings are popping up and you have to spray or hoe again.

With this product you spray and are good for no weeds for 3 months. BIG advancement, as far as I am concerned.

Leonard Pitts, who once seemed to have some sense but seems to have completely lost his mind over the past few years, is featured in my paper's op-ed section today ranting about how it's all white people's fault. (he fails to note that the cop charged with murdering Freddy Gray is an African American). He cites a video of a white cop NOT SHOOTING a white man who was threatening him as evidence of the racism of police.

Yikes.

Nice vignette about Calvin Peete during the WGC telecast just now. I didn't know about his injured arm until jimmyk mentioned it the other day. Of course, I didn't realize that his injury was at least part of the reason for his distinctive swing. According to Johnny Miller, it didn't prevent him from bring one of the better drivers on tour. Maybe I need to call out of a tree!

Good job Colonel West!

Beasts of England

Pitts needs to remember that more whites are killed by cops than blacks. And while it is disproportionately blacks by racial demographic representation, it's also greater than 95% males who die this way. Anyone suggesting that the cops are sexist? Didn't think so.

If you can accept the over-representation of men getting killed by the police, then you have to accept the racial element, as well.

Men's lives matter!! Things you'll never hear the progtards say.

Hello Agent J!

What did you make of the radar testimony on the DC gyrocopter?

Beasts of England

Same holds true for prison populations - over 90% male. Ever heard prisons called sexist? Nope. We accept that men commit more crimes. But, let race be an outlier and all of a sudden blacks lies lives matter.

Hopefully someone calls out Cankles on this when she starts whining about prison popayions this election. Of course, we could have an affirmative action program to place lots more women behind bars...

Was sitting on the patio last night with my wife when, at 10:08 four separate objects without standard navigation lights, glowing orange, appeared out of the North or northwest traveling to the south east. They appeared one at a time except in one instance we could see two. They were not helicopters or airplanes. They might have been about 2000 feet in the air. They might have been drones. I do have a video and some still photos but the objects are just dots. I will check with Eastern Air Defense radar Monday to see if they saw anything on radar.

Gentlejim

Careful there Beasts. Start throwing more wimmenz in prison and you might lose some of those extra virgins.

Back from our car show. Pictures at my FB page. One Performante Lambo there of my neighbors that I never knew he owned. Frederick sat by it in the grass hoping he could get a ride home. Neighbor said sure, if you pay for the gas. Also another friends 1955 gull wing MB. Now that is my kind of car.

Wonderful idea.

Fox says these people will announce this week:

Mike Huckabee
Ben Carson
Carly Fiorina

The only one I would consider not a time-waster is Fiorina, who has proven surprisingly good in interviews and speaking.

Carson is a man of sterling charaacter and a phenomenal surgeon, but is soft on 2nd Amendment, wishy on dealing with people like Sharpton, and is not strong enough in his personna to be CIC.

I do not need to explain my disdain for Huckabee.

Old Lurker

If you wanted a larger stage for Janet's idea, consider using California. It is closer to satisfying her list already than is Baltimore. Let all the Progs flow there then we can put up the wall we never built to the south. Roach Motel.

We would have to evacuate our friends of course.

Any sound eminating from those objects, sbw? Could you estimate their size? I've posted a bizarre UFO on JOM from a few years ago. Lots of interesting objects flying around. I suspect they're all in the drone family.

I was aware of the incident when it happened, but not of any details..seem to file those things under "attention seekers".

Jim Eagle

AgentJ is right. Knowing something about radar and big bombs:) the problem is drones and a gyrocopter is just a big drone when you paint it. Now you know why the government is really concerned about the growning populaiton of drones. You cannot track them on our outdated ATC systems. In fact, I would be surprised that the Secret Service has anything to track them around the WH or whereever the POTUS decides to alite.

Chicken marinated overnight on the grill. Potato salad and pinto beans. And Beer. Life is good here too.

I love the deck. I really do. The weather this spring really has been just absolutely glorious. Last weekend was rainy - but I love rain. But every other weekend has been picture perfect.

Now I'm sitting out here listening to some Brad Paisley on spotify. Going to see him in a couple weeks with mrs hit and run over in Raleigh. She tried dropping subtle hints for a very long time. I'm a lughead, so I wasn't picking up what she was laying down. So she finally had to slap me upside the head V-8 style saying she wanted me to take her to a concert.

I got the message. Finally. So we're going. Should be fun.

The dude has a song his latest album called High Life. What's not to love?

Miss Marple

Soeaking of High Life, I am having one now with my home made tacos.

Extraneus

Hit, you once said you had no taste buds, or something to that effect. Yet, you post about food and cooking, which always gives me a V-8.

Mmmmmm. Tacos sound good. Getting sprinkled here, so not on the deck.

Miss Marple

I got abot 7 feet of the flower beds cleared today. I have to go out and rake everything up because the mowers are coming tomorrow.

Jeff Dobbs

Good question, Ext! My tastebuds simply refuse to discriminate on beer and wine. A $50 bottle of wine simply does not taste better than a $10 bottle to me.

And while I can taste a difference between High Life and some hoity toity beer - the difference is not better. High Life tastes as good as it gets for me.

I simply (there's that word again!) cannot justify spending any more than the price of High Life when I'm drinking beer. What good would it do anyone for me to do that?

I love to cook. I really do. I do not have a refined palate. But I love making stuff that others say is really good.

princess hit and run had a sleep over last night. After we picked her up we stopped and got a quick lunch. Taco Bell. I don't care what anyone thinks - Taco Bell tastes as good to me as just about anything else.

But I am gonna love my chicken and potato salad and beans tonight. But trust me when I say that it's all cheap. But good. Good and cheap.

That's me.

Calvin Peete was the most accurate driver on tour for years when he playe d. Not the longest but the most accurate - short grass v. long grass. Very true. His weakness like every pro out there was his putting. They can all get up and down. Drive it a mile and recover but can you putt. The same stroke from 10' or 30' or even 3' is actually more important than the 300 yd. drive or the 8 iron to 12 feet.

I am glad there is SOMEONE who has plebian taste like me. I am 100% with you on High Life and wine.

Texas Roadhouse's chicken fried sirloin with cream gravy and mashed potatoes.

I once took a class at the Culinary Institute of America called "Flavor Dynamics" or something like that. They set up 10 or 15 little numbered cups at everyone's desk, and talked about the difference between taste and flavor.

If you hold your nose, you can "taste" the difference between salt and sugar, sour, bitter and umami, but that's it. Everything else is flavor and comes from the combination of taste and smell.

For example, they had cups of lemon juice, orange juice and something else I can't remember, and nobody could tell the difference without smelling them.
