good to see you back.

From the last thread:
Other artists at the event threatened to cancel their own performances if Matisyahu was allowed to take the stage because he was “seen to represent Israel,” according to the Times of Israel.

Matisyahu is not Israeli, he's an American Jew. So much for the idea that these scum are only opposed to Israeli policies and not anti-semitic.

Love having you back Beasts

I would love to come to dinner sounds delicious

Agent J

I cooked breaded pork chops, fresh corn on the cob, rice topped with gravy. The cook had at least one glass of wine. Or maybe it was two.

The cook also over indulged in the food part of the meal.

Is this the beer and golf thread?

Sorry, I'll have to bow out.

Oh wait.

Made a nice linguine sauce with canned tuna in oil and a couple of tuna steaks braised in it at the end.

Perfecto.

Just read an article from Drudge about how Obama is spending all his time planning how to spend all his time post presidency. It's all about money -of course. And he's got Hollywood in there to make sure he knows how to bamboozle the world.

In my dreams no one gives him the time of day, post presidency.

This does not surprise me at all about Obama
He is clearly bored with the job people aren't fainting anymore and his Iran deal is DOA
He is not getting anything on guns and his EPA is feckless
No wonder he dreams about a new life

Jeff Dobbs

Jane:

OK, let's to the right thing...

The heart of the postpresidential planning is Mr. Obama’s own outreach to eclectic, often extraordinarily rich groups of people. Several aides close to Mr. Obama said his extended conversations over the lengthy dinners — guests say his drink of choice at the gatherings is an extra-dry Grey Goose martini — reminded them of the private consultations Mr. Obama had with donors and business leaders as he sought to build a winning campaign.

Don't drink Grey Goose. Grey Goose is for wusses.

Titos. Obama would never drink Titos.

I'm watching the FOX Show, "Political Insiders", with host Harris Faulkner and regular guests Caddell, Schoen and the other guy.

I did not watch Chris Wallace, but from Captain Hate's commentary on it, it seems to me that Harris Faulkner's panel is criticizing the mindset of the Wallace panel:

Caddell; We are a different political paradigm. Three quarters of Americans believe that this country is in absolute decline. 3/5ths of them believe that their children lives will not be as good as their's was that they inherited. And 85-90% believe that the system is rigged. Doug has had surveys done showing that people believe that neither Party is capable of bringing change, yet in Washington, the political class, what they cannot grasp, the paradigm they defend, which is somehow it will be normal, somehow we will be only Democrats and Republicans,...the revolution is here.

Leboutillier: And Pat, we watch, we talk all of us about the Sunday Morning Political Shows on all the networks, and if you watched them today, everyone of these people on all the networks they don't pay any attention to what Pat just said, and instead, "Oh, it's the summer, it's a fling, it's August, they'll get over it, Trump and Carson are just the next version of Michelle Bachman and Herman Caine." They're not. This is a different thing. What he just said..."

Schoen: Right. And also Bernie Sanders. Let's be bipartisan here. There's anger across the board, it's not just the Republicans, it's the Democrats. There's a sense that the established order will be Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush, just represents the failed politics of the past.

Definitely nothing wrong with that. You can spend money or time on your kids. Time is better.

I was listening to a LIBTARD on a sports radio show this p.m.. The Radio dude was saying participation trophies and awards were perfectly fine. Everyone deserves a trophy even if they lose. He said it's just like getting a Varsity letter. All you have to do is show up and hang around til seasons end. What a tard. You have to MAKE THE TEAM to earn a Varsity letter.

Heh, Jeff. Two or three matter even more :)

MissM, my grandfather Generalled through WWII on vodka martinis-- including several shared with Patton at their houseboats on Anacostia before the war. Not that there is anything wrong with gin, I enjoy both forms.

Jane

I love grey goose, but if it is Obama's drink of choice I might have to give it up. I like Tito's too, but grey goose is my true love. There is nothing better than a grey goose dirty martini.

Maryrose, the Iran deal is far from dead. Obama has no intention of losing.

BTW has anyone else seen that nuke ad reminiscent of the Goldwater ad? It freaks me out.

Miss Marple

henry,

Didn't mean to offend. Perhaps it's because I learned to drink gin martinis first, and vodka martinis to me seem to have no flavor.

Probably makes them more dangerous, though.

Captain Hate on the iPad

I'm polishing off a growler of Stone Stochasticity Project HiFi LowFi Mixtape which is fine but I think the brewery spends more time thinking up names than making something noticeably different tasting than Arrogant Bastard.

As somebody at Conservative Treehouse pointed out, Will has readily admitted that his wife works for Walker's campaign and I think it's dirty pool by Ailes to include him on panels discussing candidates. I'm really getting sick of the Rove News Channel.

daddy

i haven't tried it yet, but based on my lack of discernible taste buds -

Jeff,

Because of this tastebud problem of yours I have pored thru my Churchill (My Early years) and come upon the section where he provides a solution (page 125-127). It is during the campaign against some tribes whilst in India, so I ask JOM's indulgence for a fairly long but interesting paste:

{ The General took only five days to coax and quell the
Bunerwals, but it seemed a very long time to me. I en
deavoured to turn it to the best advantage. I acquired an entirely new faculty. Until this time I had never been able to drink whisky. I disliked the flavour intensely. I could not understand how so many of my brother officers were so often calling for a whisky and soda. I liked wine, both red and white, and especially champagne} and on very special occasions I could even drink a small glass of brandy. But this smoky-tasting whisky I had never been able to face. I now found myself in heat which, though I stood it personally fairly well, was terrific, for five whole days and with absolutely nothing to drink, apart from tea, except either tepid water or tepid water with lime-juice or tepid water with whisky.

Faced with these alternatives I 'grasped the larger hope.' I was sustained in these affairs by my high morale. Wishing to fit myself for active-service conditions I overcame the ordinary weaknesses of the flesh. By the end of these five days I had completely overcome my repugnance to the taste of whisky. Nor was this a momentary acquirement. On the contrary the ground I gained in those days I have firmly entrenched, and held throughout my whole life. Once one got the knack of it, the very repulsion from the flavour developed an attraction of its own and to this day although I have always practised true temperance, I have never shrunk when occasion warranted it from the main basic standing refreshment of the white officer in the East.

Of course all this whisky business was quite a new departure in fashionable England. My father for instance could never have drunk whisky except when shooting on a moor or in some very dull chilly place. He lived in the age of the 'Brandy and Soda/ for which indeed there was much respectable warrant. However, surveying the proposition from an impartial standpoint after adequate experiment and reflection, I am clear that for ordinary daily use whisky in a diluted form is the more serviceable of these twin genii.

Now that I have been drawn into this subject while
perched upon the Malakand Pass, let me say that I and other young officers had been brought up quite differently from the University boys of those times. The undergraduates of Oxford and Cambridge used to drink like fishes, and they even had clubs and formal dinners where it was an obligation for everyone to consume more liquor than he could carry.

At Sandhurst, on the other hand, and in the Army, drunkenness was a disgraceful offence punishable not only by social reprobation often physically manifested, but if it ever got into the official sphere, by the sack. I had been brought up and trained to have the utmost contempt for people who got drunk; except on very exceptional occasions and a few anniversaries and I would have liked to have the boozing scholars of the Universities wheeled into line and properly chastised for their squalid misuse of what I must ever regard
as a good gift of the gods.

In those days I was very much against drunkards, prohibitionists and other weaklings of excess: but now I can measure more charitably the frailties of nature from which their extravagances originate. Subalterns in those days were an intolerant tribe 5 they used to think that if a man got drunk or would not allow other people to have a drink, he ought to be kicked. Of course we all know much better now, having been civilised and ennobled by the Great War. }

Just finished that book a couple of months ago. Fascinating, not only for Churchill's life but the times he lived in, Victorian and Edwardian Britain.

Kudos to Chip Kelly for giving Tebow a chance, like I said about Belichick. I believe that, for whatever reason, there's a present dearth of Goodell Football League caliber QBs so maybe a spot exists for him.

Miss M,

Hope Nathan has a chance to read it!

I had forgotten that Churchill decided he needed to learn to drink Whiskey 'for the needs of the service.'
I thought he just wanted to better fit in as one of the boys. God Bless such devotion to the military service:)

Jeff,

I have really developed a taste for the Balvenie 12 single malt. I recall that when our British Petroleum friends, (she from Aberdeen Scotland, he from England) first introduced me to it at their home after dinner, I considered it totally putrid and undrinkable.
But in the interest of international relations, I sipped "once more unto the breach," and magically that genii of Churchill's so modified my taste buds that I consider it now as exquisite mother's milk as exists on the planet. I'm sure it's not the best nor the worst, just somewhere in the great middle of fine Scottish sauces, but to this plebeian tongue it's mighty hard to beat!

If/when we do meet up, we'll share a jug, and if you do convert, 't'will be great fun to watch Jess's eye's light up when you order a shot neat at the Pool parlor.

Is the Feast of the Assumption celebrated in other cities, particularly in the Italian areas; or is it something specific to the Little Italy part of Cleveland?

jimmyk

Interesting story in today's NYT sports about IK Enemkpali, the guy who broke Geno Smith's jaw. Not to excuse the punch, but Smith seems like a first-class a**hole, and IK seems like a generally stand-up guy who made a mistake, apologized, and is getting a second chance.

The back story is that IK was running a summer football camp for kids, Smith said he'd come, and IK had promoted it and paid for Smith's plane tickets. Smith was a no-show, never even called, leaving a bunch of disappointed kids, disgruntled parents, and embarrassing IK. Then rather than apologize and repay IK, Smith apparently was taunting IK in the locker room.

As someone joked, Smith will miss about 13-15 interceptions.

jimmyk

Very kind and generous offer, Cindy K. The missus seems to have her heart set on Flathead Lodge, but if we make it next summer we'll try to arrange a meetup.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Purportedly Geno threw the first punch(es?) but, like his passes, failed to connect. He was a horrible first round draft choice even by the J-E-T-S miserable standards. He was a choking mutt with the Mountainqueers and taking him to the next level has had the expected results.

Pierrot

A comment on Hillary's server and emails as a response to a post on the previous thread about the possibility of there being a copy of that material.

It doesn't matter if there is a copy. The FBI has the original server now. FBI Forensics can recover the data, no matter how the drive has been scrubbed. As long as there is no serious physical damage to the drive, they can get it.

More than that, there are a finite number of ".gov" locations from which classified material could have been sent to her. The NSA, for one, could reconstruct as much of the traffic to her server as they want. Or from it.

It will take time to put it together, so I wouldn't expect to hear anything definite right away. But it's all there

Miss Marple

The Feast of the Assumption is a Catholic Feast Day. It wasn't a holy day of obligation this year, but sometimes it is.

Captain Hate on the iPad

My point, which I didn't make clear at all, is that it's a weekend long carnival with a Catholic underpinning in Little Italy. I used to live within walking distance of it (parking is in short supply) and it was a fun thing to do before I was married and shortly thereafter. Now, many years later, it has assumed, rightly or otherwise, iconic status to the point where I was considering going there.

Man Tran

Wanted to pass along a new thing we enjoyed yesterday: Pocket Concerts. A couple of musicians from Toronto are formally promoting it, but we have been enjoying variations of it via pals of ours here on our rock.

In this instance, there were four brilliant young musicians: violin, viola, harp and piano. They played for about two hours in our friend's home which was designed to allow chamber music to be performed in front of about 60 people. All the performances were duets and with barely any practice together, they did wonderfully. The two from Toronto were violist and pianist while the violinist was from Houston and the harpist is a native of Seattle. Great fun was had by all.

jimmyk

I lost a lot of respect for Gowdy when he was fellating the FBI on Rove News Sunday.

I tuned in in the middle, so maybe I missed something, but I didn't see it that way. Wallace was suggesting that the whole thing is just a partisan attack on Hillary, and Gowdy was deflecting that by saying the FBI is non-partisan. And I thought he did say something like, let's see what their investigation finds.

And, IIRC, he also said that the lengths to which Hillary and friends went to expunge data is significant. To have the data professionally wiped implies intent to conceal and destroy evidence. (Someone on FNS said that anyway, I think it was Gowdy.)

narciso

yes, I was giving him the benefit of the doubt,

Man Tran

I chuckle at all this server stuff. Back in the late '90s, we had one of our coders throw an Apache server on a 386 tower for our little shop of nearly 20 people. It ran unattended and never even shut down for service for about 5 yrs. one little SATA drive worth $100 could be swapped out in about five minutes and smashed with a hammer and dropped in the dumpster months before any of this stuff even started.

More modern offsite services certainly make sense today, but if it was all in the ol Hag's basement, good luck.

Separate from all that, can anyone pass the laff test when explaining why the NSA can't cough it all up?

Captain Hate on the iPad

In a rare defense of Wallace, I think he was suggesting that Rodham would (and already is) use the partisan canard. I can't copy and paste effectively with this so I am using memory, but Gowdy was talking about when he was in the DoJ how great the FBI was and I was thinking "just shut up".

You can check the transcript on the Rove News Sunday website to see if I overreacted, which I've been known to do.

Pierrot

Gus, I think this will turn out differently.

During Watergate, everyone was sure Nixon would skate. His problem, and Hillary's now, was that it had gotten outside the bounds of politics.

No. If the fix was in, it would have gone in six months ago and there would have been no more stories. Every day this is talked about hurts her. I think it's out of her control.

Anyway, my $0.02

Captain Hate on the iPad

There's a new generation of voters who supported 404 over Rodham because there was NFW they could ever vote for a dirty dishrag. She will never get their support and quite frankly she looks deranged when talking about Benghazi which is additionally insulting to the families of the victims.

My memory was faulty: It wasn't in response to the "partisan attack" question, it was just a question about whether the FBI could be objective. I'm not bothered by his answer, but I may be insufficiently cynical, which I would not have thought likely.

sure she'll lose but the Clinton's have already raked hundreds of millions and she won't be a hot ticket on the speaking circuit anymore but still would like to see news footage "will the defendant please rise".

Hi Jane. Arrived home yesterday about 2:30 PM.
