I am sure Mrs. MT figured out very quickly that the student assistant was a needed friend for that quarter. She knows how to get results!

This FLINT RIVER water story is a hoot!!

When did the City of Flint's decisions become the FEDERAL GOVT or the GOP'S concern??

Milwaukee has been dumping BILLLLIONS with a B of gallons of crappy crap crap into LAKE MICHIGAN for years.

DEMOCRATS ALL.

Happy Birthday Jane!

New page, new post of the link:

You guys are just the best!

Now if only we could manage the same trick with that other poll, the one on November 8th this year...

GUS

Oh yes Henry, same strip mall, I've been to GUITAR CENTER more times than I voted for JAMES!!!!!!!!

I like this chart from the GOP on voting so far in primaries....shows the discrepancy between Rs and Ds in a handy to view and share format...


I note that only Bernie's Vermont is down for the R's versus 2012...

Grief. Really sucks when someone you love is dying. Plug has been pulled, hope the passing is quick. I will miss my mother in law (wife's stepmom).

I thought so Gus... i swing by when I get a haircut at the Supercuts there.

So sorry to hear that, pd.

henry

So sorry to hear that PDinDet.

Old Lurker

Sorry PD.

James D

So sorry, PD. Prayers for you and your family.

Happy B-Day Jane!

Dave (in MA)

My sympathy, PD.

Gus

Speaking of guitars, I assume you have spent time (and probably money) in Gruhn's Guitars?

Centralcal on iPad

So sorry, PD.

Threadkiller

I'm sorry, PD.

Wow, the NYT now claims Trump is Tea Party, the ultimate evil in our society. This in a concern trolling of Paul Ryan, which blames Ryan for helping the Tea Party at the beginning. (Note, Ryan was very open to the Tea Party here in WI -- he is now more open to the Chamber).

Smooches, elliott.

Pagliano granted immunity in exchange for testimony in the Clinton Email Investigation. Hopefully, this spells the end of her campaign.

Little sis of a high school girlfriend took her 28 year old son Matt home today from the hospital.

He has been receiving treatments for leukemia, but it can't be stopped.

Yesterday he posted a note on FB that he has 30-45 days left and much preferred to be home with his family than waiting to die in a hospital.

He also expressed his confidence in his salvation and let his friends know that he was at peace.

I was dumbfounded and awe struck by his wisdom and courage.

clarice

Sorry,PD.

Buckeye

Thinking of you also PD.

Trump is a Soros Trojan horse

Jane

So sorry PD. Hang tough!

JeffD-- thanks for the 2 stats this morning. The first proves that the Repub nomination is legitimately and completely up for grabs. Le Donald has no claim to the crown. Recent events (GOPe yanking $$$ from Rubio and Mailman's son and Carson dropping out seem to make Cruz an inside track, IF Rubio wins Fla's 99 delegates.) The other stat is turnout. The anti-DC voters have turned out in Repub primaries. The GOP needs to keep the protest vote happy and turning out in November. They should for Cruz, as long as Le Donald does not play spoiler.

Jane

Elliott! you instigator! It's worth getting older to see you show up!

No he's a division asset, did I say that outliud.

Last Friday, my mother in law (Dana's Step Mother) had a food airway obstruction where she was without oxygen for approximately 8-11 minutes. Heimlich Manoeuvre unsuccessful. She was in a coma, most she got to was 15% brain function. Doctors declared no hope yesterday and life support removed.

Love each other often as we just never know how long we have here.

NK

PD-- OMG, what a terrible thing. So sorry for your family's loss.

Trump is getting crossover votes that will return to the dems in the general.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Bryan is pretty close to useless as a comparison.
First and most importantly, he was following a fairly disastrous admin under Grover Cleveland, an admin of his own party.
Trump is not.
Second while it is true the Reps dominated after Bryan it is less than complete, because of course they dominated for decades prior to that as well.

That is not to say there are no similarities. Bryan was a populist but the histircal factors cited above far outweigh that.
However the comparison can become eerily similar if some people have their way.
If Trump gets the nomination and the GOPe and whiny baby conservatives and neo cons sufficiently sabotage Trump to ensure a Hillary victory by either supporting her, or as the idiot Dems did in 1896, run a third party candidate and sufficiently split the vote then yes Bryan will be a fitting parallel indeed only it won't be Trump who caused the problem or elected the opposition.

I guess the question is are the panicking GOPes and conservatives sufficiently stupid to crucify Trump on his wall of gold?

PDinDetroit

I know some lifelong Democrats here in the Detroit Area who are all in for Trump. I was dumbfounded at their support but awestruck by their enthusiasm. They will not vote for Socialist Bernie nor Criminal Hillary, but will turnout for Trump.

Jeff Dobbs

Porch, what is going on with the GOP in Travis County?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/03/03/texas-republican-disaster-new-county-chair-is-conspiracy-theorist-who-tweets-of-feeling-boobylicious/

I saw this briefly last night. Trump's good friend (maybe a better descriptor for their relationship?) Roger Stone was apparently heavily involved in the effort.

That works for Soros as well

Porchlight

PDinDetroit, I'm so very sorry to hear that.

Porchlight

Wow, crazy story, Jeff. At least it's Travis County - that's probably why he's here, it's so hopeless.

Yeah, Stone is something else, isn't he?

NK

Roger Stone is the Repub version of David Brock.

narciso

Yikes, morrow is a long time JFK conspiracy theorist, claims he was a via agent, on the qt. Actually gruntled division reject.

Jeff Dobbs

NK:
Roger Stone is the Repub version of David Brock.

Well, I found it curious that Stone tweeted @mmfa in the one about "inserting" Morrow in the Travis Co GOP....what was that about? They're not friends - and mmfa hates his guts - was Stone just needling them?

Going down the rabbit hole once I started reading Stone stuff ... MMFA has a story about Stone saying Judge Napalitano of Fox would be Trump's number one choice for SCOTUS. I'll chalk that up to Stone being Stone and not a serious reflection of something Trump has actually said publicly or privately.

GUS

Buckeye, Gruhns' makes me cry. So many guitars that I cannot have!!

Porchlight

Roger Stone is the Repub version of David Brock.

I almost typed that exact thing but actually Stone is further out in wackoland than Brock.

I will miss my mother in law (wife's stepmom)

That’s too bad, PD. After a bumpy road, we came to realize that in very alive memories my MIL is still with us. May your MIL remain vibrant and alive forever with you, too.

PDinDetroit

Thank you all for the well wishes. You guys really do rock.
