I woulda thought you were ready for an open beer.

So, anyway - on our drive back home we saw the Zac Brown Band's truck headed west. Their next show is in Salt Lake on July 9th, so the band probably has a few days off somewhere in UT, WY or ID planned.

And we saw a Tony Stewart truck heading east. Obviously Tony was in Daytona this weekend, so it's probably a truck left over from the race at Sonoma the week prior - headed toward Kentucky for this coming weekend's race.

Some metaphors are off limits.

Captain Hate

From the Rick Wells link:

It’s only a little less noteworthy that Rep Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, who is often used as a thinly-veiled tool of the pro-amnesty multi-national corporations that finance him, would expose the responsibility of the federal government in the Kate Steinle murder. His standard method of operation mirrors that of Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), to talk a strong enforcement game and then despicably surrender when it matters most.

Make no doubt about it, the amnesty loving RINOs are at least as complicit in the death of that woman as the commiecrats, which is why Goodlatte's comments are significant.

Jane

Thanks Hit! Glad you had a good vacation.

The state of my readiness for such is perpetual.

And hmmmm, RFAOB! coulda been a nice acronym...

Miss Marple

That headline is completely ridiculous, TK. He didn't target Brady at all.

I am not faulting you, but the headline writer and reporter. To say China's leaders against ours are like Tom Brady and the Patriots against a high school team isn't insulting to Brady.

It's insulting to the administration.

narciso

things that make you go hmm:

Goodell is the real target,

James D

MM, it's actually insulting to high school football teams everywhere.

Trump was too generous. The Chinese leadership vs. Obama & company is like Tom Brady and the Patriots vs. a Pee-Wee League team.

Captain Hate

Whoever wrote that piece that TK linked @ 1:28 has severe reading comprehension problems.

Threadkiller Mobynatious

Pretty sick isn't it, MM?

narciso

he's trying to get hired as ESPN?

Miss Marple

TK,

Apparently now if Trump mentions anyone's name he is automatically "going after" them. No doubt this is an effort to get Patriots fans on the anti-Trump bandwagon.

Such is the state of the current witch hunt.

I have noticed his daughter's Twitter account has been inactive. All she ever talked about was opening hotels and her shoe line, with occasional mentions of her toddler daughter.

Apparently the witch hunt turned on her as well.

I despise this mob mentality. I hope Trump goes after them with as much force as he can afford. He's got lots of attorneys who are well-paid. I would like to see some of these internet trash-talkers hauled into court.

Captain Hate

The good news, Miss Marple, is that Trump will pursue any legal remedy for what the vermin do against him. Again, he isn't my idea of a good candidate at all but he stands in stark contrast to everything I despise about the gutless GOPe.

Captain Hate

he's trying to get hired as ESPN?

He's doing a good job of creating controversy where there is none, which is a, for lack of a less misleading term, skill which they value highly. However, as much as I hate Bathtub Boy, I think even he would be embarrassed by having too many low brain wattage turds in his midst.

James D

Glenn at Instapundit has what I think is the exact right answer on Trump:

If you don’t address the concerns of a large group, someone else will, and it won’t be someone you choose.

sidwhite

I just had a dumb (or brilliant?) idea. AP has an article up lamenting the difficulty in changing the state constitutions (this article about Idaho) to be compliant with the new marriage law invented by the SCOTAS. That made me think... Why don’t states continue in accordance with the current state laws and make the applicants for same sex licenses go the local Federal Court House to obtain a license under the new SCOTUS law. I assume a SCOTUS law is a type of Federal law??? Could the states under the recent US Circuit decisions and those under the SCOTUS law get together to force that?

Old Lurker

Oh sidwhite, you are being silly.

After the Pacific Trade Pact passes all Federal, State and Local laws will be subservient to the new international commissions so it is easier to just fix it all there. (which is why the GOPe votes which will/might peel away when the shock of that is revealed, but those will be replaced 2:1 by Progs stepping in to pass it.)

Captain Hate

Bang spot on, James. Eric Cantor getting the boot should have been a big heads up for the GOP but when you have party elements with their heels dug in against something, it was only the opening shot.

They'll only learn the hard way but learn they will. Vote Mike Flynn tomorrow.

Porchlight

If you don’t address the concerns of a large group, someone else will, and it won’t be someone you choose.

Exactly. I said this earlier - if the respectable politicians abandon the fight, the disreputable politicians will be happy to take up the banner. See: Europe.

Miss Marple

Captain Hate,

Exactly. The GOPe have no one to blame but themselves.

My sister who's a nurse thinks one of Trump's good points is that he's filthy rich and won't be trying to get rich on the deals they cook up in DC behind the scenes. She is flat-out sick of people going to Washington with nothing and leaving as multi-millionaires with no one explaining how they do it, and no one doing anything about it.

I know this isn't a rational reason to vote for someone, but it must appeal to a lot of people because Trump goes around saying, "I'm very, very rich." HA!

Anyway, I like that he will send stern letters through his attorneys which he also releases to the press, digs up old photos of critics posing with him, and will not hesitate to drag people into court.

Remember, I am the woman who likes movies with lots of explosions.

clarice

Perhaps the Republican candidates might stop shooting at each other and go after Hillary for addressing LaRaza this week. Speaking of racist outfits.

clarice

Also this:http://www.breitbart.com/video/2015/07/06/hillary-flashback-sanctuary-cities-keep-all-citizens-safe/

Maybe instead of asking her for her favorite ice cream flavor someone in the press might ask her if this is still her view?

MarkO

There is almost nothing as wide open as I-80 where you were.

Captain Hate on the iPhone

That Rodham is even addressing La Raza shows her perpetual tin ear. Another opportunity for the GOPe to squander.

Jane

Sidwhite,

I see no reason not to try. The Feds can sue the states and in 6 years we'll have an answer.

daddy

Why is it being reported as big, noteworthy News that the President is being briefed today about ISIS by Pentagon officials?

I thought that was part of the job description of being Command In Chief.

Miss Marple

http://pjmedia.com/victordavishanson/is-the-world-becoming-fed-up/

I would like to point out that Victor Davis Hanson is not clutching his pearls at the comments of Donald Trump.

henry

daddy, if he doesn't read about it in the papers, will Obama know what he was briefed about?

Cispigmented Heteronormative Microagressive Ignatz

About the woman murdered by the guy deported five times;
she is joined by this one murdered by an illegal deported a mere four times.

Miss Marple

daddy,

Once in a while they make a big to-do about something that Obama is doing that would be considered normal in any other president.

Here are the reasons they do this:
1. His supporters like to have ammo when he is criticized for being lazy and inattentive to his duties, so this is a "See? He was briefed! Now shut up!" event.

2. This briefing is also probably done so that the restless and worried officers in the Pentagon can be told to their faces that he's "considering" their proposals, rather than hearing it from Valerie Jarrett. Of course, they will be waiting forever for his "considerations" to translate into any sort of action.

I always hope that it's a trap and they are going to arrest him, but alas, my dreams never come true.

MarkO

I don't think there is enough Brintellix to prop me up.

daddy

Jeff,

Per chance did you guys stop and visit Shiloh battlefield in Tennessee on the drive back, or any other interesting roadside "must see", such as the world's largest ball of twine in Cawker City, Kansas?

If you posted something about an intriguing sightseeing quick stop on the ride back that you guys had on your vacation, I missed it, and I can't feel comfortable about bringing true closure to my vicarious sharing of your vacation experience without some incident of seeing something unexpected and memorable that I can share with my bartender buddies in Sydney, since I'm off to work myself later today, after 6 weeks of screwing around doing nothing. The Park Grizzly bear incident on the way out was excellent, but I need something to complete the return leg.

Still catching up. This would be slightly more, uh, resonant if the girls' opponents weren't other girls.

daddy

stephanopoulos-asks-shouldnt-there-be-a-law-requiring-illegals-to-be-deported/

If you spend a few minutes googling you can find that Stephanopoulos as White House Communications Director back in 1993 during the Kimba Woods hiring of an illegal and Ron Brown hiring of illegals etc, the Laws regarding illegal aliens was a topic George was very familiar with, since he had to do all the damage control statements, so perhaps he just forgot that he used to know when he worked in the White House that there are rules requiring the deportation of illegals aliens.

I wish somebody on his show would simply ask him to answer his own question since when he used to work in the White House back then he knew the answer. (i.e.) "You used to know the answer to your question George when you worked in the White House. Are you playing stupid with me and your Television audience, or did you honestly forget?"

Captain Hate

She is flat-out sick of people going to Washington with nothing and leaving as multi-millionaires with no one explaining how they do it, and no one doing anything about it.

Miss Marple,

I know I've mentioned how Mark Begich is staying in DC and has been hired by at least 2 Lobbying and Consulting firms, but last week I started hearing Public Service Ad Announcements on our local Talk Stations where the pitch woman identified herself as Mark Begich's wife. (She doesn't use his last name Begich, so she says who she is and then identifies herself as Mark Begich's wife). Since all she was beforehand was a gal who owned a coffee/gift shop in downtown Anchorage, I have to think somebody is paying her to do those Public Service Ads. Wonder how much she's getting for that?

Porchlight

Hahaha, Cap'n. Everyone who wants to read it better get there fast before it gets fixed.

Buckeye

So I see the only thing Yahoo could find news worthy after the USA win yesterday was that Abby Wambach celebrated by kissing her "wife" who was sitting in the stands.

Could someone please explain why I am supposed to give a shit??

Captain Hate

In case it goes down the memory hole, this is what I was referring to:

Born in Fresno, California, originally as Susan Avakian, he is the first public official in Oregon's history believed to made the journey from woman to man. After a lengthy sex change operation at Johns Hopkins, Avakian proudly exclaimed to his constituents "After a long and arduous process, I finally have a penis!" Susan/Brad can be found skipping through the halls of the Oregon department of Labor and Industry, swinging a pail of daisies and singing songs from Charles Manson's greatest hits.

There's no way all of that can be true, amirite?

daddy

Mis Marple,

Maybe they're playing up the ISIS Pentagon brief so he can comment on it in his forthcoming press conference later today, and use it as an opportunity to tell us why it is so important to sign the Iran Nuke deal so that he can then focus like a laser beam on ISIL etc.

Cispigmented Heteronormative Microagressive Ignatz

OMG, that was funny.

Buckeye

CH

Obviously the sex change operation was flawed.

They didn't sew the penis on his head.

MarkO

I, for one, miss the Shah.

Daddy:
If you posted something about an intriguing sightseeing quick stop

Sightseeing quick stops on 30 hour drives* are quite limited. As in - "kids you have 1 minute and 29 seconds to get in there, take a whiz, and be back in the car or you're getting left behind."

"I have this GPS time I gotta beat. We're up 14 minutes versus the estimated arrival when we left this morning, but this stop could ruin all that. Hop to it!"

Buckeye

Been thinking about this Avakian sex change story.

What does it say about a society that invests that much time, effort and money into transforming Sue into Brad so "it" can feel better about itself...

but can't find the time, effort or money for simple things, say for example hip replacements for the elderly, you know, so they can walk without pain?

Miss Marple

MarkO,

All during the early to mid-70's there was this undercurrent of how the Shah was repressive, etc. etc. It grew worse under Carter until, as you remember, Carter got him out and then we had the hostage mess, and it's been downhill ever since.

The Left is fond of saying we "installed" the Shah. I no longer feel the least bit bad if we did do that, since the alternative we have been living with over the last several decades has been a heck of a lot worse.

I miss the Shah, too.

Look at the sponsorship of the WI Department of Public Instruction.

daddy

Larry Sabato tells Neil Cavuto that Ted Cruz's announcement that he just got 51 Million bucks may not be a big deal because he might have gotten the $51 Million from 10 guys instead of from 10,000 guys.

Neil keeps pimping Sabato for less than discouraging responses to Cruz's millions but Sabato doesn't comply, so at the end Neil says with a smile on his face, "That's a non-answer to me Professor, but our time is up here." and Sabato laughs.

henry

Well, a union owned guy runs that department. (It is an elective office as specified in the WI constitution). So intense prog lunacy is what comes out of it.

Cispigmented Heteronormative Microagressive Ignatz

Life in these United States; whack a guy's penis off with a scalpel, fill him full of silicone and estrogen and tell him he's now a broad and you're a folk hero, as is the counterfeit broad.

*On all the routes you have made - what's the longest single leg you've done?

In American lingo, 8,158 miles, Hong Kong to Memphis, (13,129 kilometers in Lincoln Chafee-speak). Second longest is the old Paris to Manila leg, (6,672 miles).

Longest this trip will be the Hawaii to Sydney leg (5,100 miles, bor approximately 150 pages of whatever book I'm reading.) Heck of a long way to go for a pint of 3 Sheets at the Lord Nelson, but worth it!

England apology for tweet saying WWC players 'go back to being mothers, partners, daughters'

"Sorry if I caused offence," FA content editor James Callow tweeted. "The piece is intended to sum up a nice moment when players are reunited with their families.

"I reject any accusation of sexism and human interest is a big part of any sport reporting. I'd have done the same for England men, absolutely."

MarkO

daddy, in the 60's I flew from NYC to BA (5,295 miles) on Pan Am. I slept most of the way. I was young and not all that foolish.

Extraneus

In case anyone didn't read the piece:

After England returned from its third-place finish in Canada, the FA wrote on Twitter on Monday: "Our Lionesses go back to being mothers, partners and daughters today, but they have taken on another title — heroes."

It linked to a story which was later amended to only say that England "returned home as heroes." The FA said the story was attempting to reflect the personal stories of players.

Carolyn Maloney (D-Manhattan, basta) but has a point:

TK,

Trump keeps criticizing negotiators and their tactics. Can you name any negotiation that Trump has participated in for his hotels or golf courses where he pulled the wool over the eyes of the other guy? I mean if we are going to turn the reins of power to negotiate nuclear weapons, or immigration or even trade to a guy who says he is better at that job than anyone else then where is the proof?

Extraneus

Wag at my NR FIFA link suggested the women play soccer in lingerie to up their pay.

You know, I suggested a business idea to my wife quite a few years ago, but we never did anything about it.

The Lingerie Network.

Just some cheap cable channel, with regular woman modeling the latest fashions, which you could order online from our own website.

I think it would be a big hit. I know nothing about the TV part such a thing, but I would definitely invest if someone here might want to partner on it, and I could do the web programming.

Bleg out.

Using the Census Bureau's new, accurate measure of poverty which takes into account things like what stuff really costs and non-cash transfer payments
California's poverty rate sits at 23.4%, fully 47% higher than Texas's 15.9%, which matches the national average despite having about 50% more minorities than the national average, just as CA does.

Do you want a President that deceives the other negotiating parties at the table, JIB?

I don't take Trump's statements to suggest we need to pull wool over anyone's eyes. He seems to be saying that we shouldn't show up with wool over ours.

Since his success is owed a great deal from his ability to negotiate, I'm not sure as to a specific deal I need to point to.

Looks like Bernie Sanders got a huge crowd in Portland,between 7,000 and 9,000 people. The pictures on local media show mostly young people and a few assorted old hippies. I don't know what it means that he is drawing such large crowds. Maybe the best explanation is that people are stupid.

TK,

The problem is he is all bombast with nothing except some golf courses and hotels to show for his negotiating success. Do you really think a guy who can shout will put the fear of God into the Iranians, Chinese and Mexicans? He is all talk and no walk that I know of.

He may be exciting the electorate but I am more interested in a level headed leader who can make the deals not talk about them.

YMMV.
