Why didn't they just let them singThe fans wouldn't mind a double anthem,
it is not like they were on a time schedule .

Catching up to Narciso's 01:26 on the previous page "Win Or Lose, A Third Party Run Would Be Mitt Romney’s Greatest Legacy", the authors name Jamie Weinstein, sounded familiar, so googling I realized he is Michelle Fields boyfriend.

I also see Weinstein in his column is promoting a link to this:
Hillary Is Preferable To Trump Just Like Malaria Is Preferable To Ebola).

As Dennis Prager tells us, he is startled at how complacent, how sanguine #NeverTrumper's are at the prospect of another 4 to 8 years of DEM control of the White House and the horrendous appointments to the Supreme Court they will make.

Rats! I posted this at the end of the last topic, so I'll repost here.

Some time ago I mentioned that a proposal I submitted to NCI would fund. Last night I received my Notice of Award. It took that long for the proposal to receive the various approvals necessary and to work its way through the system.

I'm not complaining, really, but it always amazes me at how long things take with the government.

You all gave me congrats back then, so none are necessary now. But I will be opening a good wine tonight!

I can understand why the Padres have gone to a taped version of the National Anthem with lip syncing from the "performers" on the field.

A few years back somebody in the Padre organization invited Rosie O'Donnell --the fat talentless bag of goo who has persuaded some folks that she might be a comedienne-- to sing the National Anthem at the start of a Padre game. Midway through the song, Rosie forgot the lyrics (that is if she ever knew them). Faced with music, but no words, Rosie simply grabbed her crotch. I dunno, maybe she thought she would find some cue cards in there.

Anyway, the Pads subsequently went to pre recorded versions of the Anthem. No more crotch grabbing by singers on the field (otoh, the Padre players are still known to occasionally adjust their jockstraps on the field).

Maryrose,

From this story, Take Me Out to the Ball Game I learn that that the song was written by some guy in 1907 or 1908, Frank Norworth, and that he wrote 2,500 songs in his career, including "Shine On Harvest Moon."

Who knew?

I think that was a different fat talentless bag of goo who has persuaded some folks that she might be a comedienne -- Roseanne Barr.

David Jenkins, president of something called “Conservatives for Responsible Stewardship”

Regarding Robert Bryce’s “An Ill Wind: Open Season on Bald Eagles” (op-ed, May 16): Wind power is one of the best ways to protect eagles and other birds because it combats their biggest threat—climate change.

True,

But if we used DDT to kill Zika and it destroyed Eagles egg before the chicks hatched, then they would never have to grow up and suffer from Climate Change, so just imagine the total amount of Eagle suffering we would have prevented by using DDT---its an astronomical number!

If there's no flaw in his logic, there's no flaw in mine.

Indeed it was Barr that wrecked the anthem. I won't post the YouTube.

As far as the tape that wasn't used, apparently queer choir put it in the wrong hole.

Even assuming that very large problem could somehow be solved, the idea almost certainly would not pass constitutional muster. The Constitution authorizes the disqualification from voting of only two classes of citizen: minors and felons. Such restrictions as exist today—registration, residency, identification—are ministerial or logistical in character.

Not for long!

On topic! OK,this isn't funny,but it's pretty funny. I locked myself out of the cabin this morning. The small kitchen window over the kitchen sink was open to let the morning breeze in. I got a small ladder out of the garage,broke the screen and crawled thru the window,ha. Hubby just got home and I said,sorry about the screen! When I stuck my head in the window trying to figure out the best way to contort myself thru the window,the dog barked. He realized it was me and then watched,probably thinking,what the heck is she doing?!

Theo

FWIW, the last I heard about Roseanne Barr was that she ran for President in 2012 with her running mate, the "ultimate" moral authority on the war in Iraq, Cindy Sheehan.

Sheehan was something else herself. The left wing media loved her when she was complaining about Bush and the war. Then she ran against Nancy Pelosi for her House seat. Suddenly the media had nothing to say about her.

As someone said, when useful idiots are no longer useful, they are just....well, you know.

Marlene

Oh, and now an extra key is in a super secret hiding place.

Lyle @ 3:45

That's a great article, and it's what some of us here have been saying.

One thing I'd take exception to is that the author falls into the trap of using the left's language, which is in itself ceding part of the battle.

Why grant them any legitimacy by using terms like "cis" or "gender fluid" etc. Letting them rewrite the dictionary is a huge mistake.

Old Lurker

DrJ, our memory spans are so short, we can congratulate you all over again!

Congrats.

Since I listen to a lot of Talk Radio, the station that has Glenn Beck lately has been running an ad clip of his where he emotes desperately, saying something like "Everything I have been saying behind this microphone for the last 10 years is coming true before our eyes and God is moving to save the Republic and..."

Not to diminish religious individuals and their belief that God acts within history, but Beck strikes me as more and more totally nuts. I can't even stand listening to his ads anymore, much less his show.

Does anyone know what his audience numbers are? I have to imagine they are below "in the toilet."

Library run. Later. Have a nice trip Frau and Clarice, wherever you babes are going:)

We keep a spare key hidden under a outdoor shelf next to the grill.

I noticed this weekend that the big black and yellow bumblebees that bore into wood to create a nest have picked that same spot. Lots of sawdust, lots of activity.

Hope I don't need that key before it gets cold!

Harry Reid says "not only no, but hell no" to Liz Brown as VP

"Do you think it's wise to even consider pulling somebody like a Sherrod Brown (D-OH) or a Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) out of the United States Senate at a time when Democrats are trying to win the body back," MSNBC's Joy Ann Reid, no known relation, asked the senator.

"If we have a Republican governor in any of the states the answer is not only no, but hell no," Reid replied. "I would do whatever I can and I think most of my Democratic colleagues here would say the same thing."

Governors: Charlie Baker (R-MA), John Kasich (R-OH)

Of the 100 members of the Gay Men's Choir how many do you think are gay?

The reason I bring this up is that we used to go the Brompton Oratory in Knnightsbridge for Sunday Mass. They had a terrific choir. No one has ever sung the Credo like them since I left London.

None of the choir was Catholic. Hired. Paid. But forever on all their CD's that sell out to all the tourists, they are a Catholic choir at Brompton Oratory.

Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the FBI and prosecutors from the Justice Department's public integrity unit, U.S. officials briefed on the probe say.
The investigation dates to at least last year and has focused, at least in part, on whether donations to his gubernatorial campaign violated the law, the officials said.

McAuliffe wasn't notified by investigators that he is a target of the probe, according to the officials.
"The Governor will certainly cooperate with the government if he is contacted about it," said Marc Elias, attorney for McAuliffe campaign, in a statement to CNN.
As part of the probe, the officials said, investigators have scrutinized McAuliffe's time as a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, a vehicle of the charitable foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton.

--Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is the subject of an ongoing investigation...--

It's a campaign finance security review to see if he should become a justice involved individual.

The Infamous Ignatz

Too much to hope for I know but wouldn't it be hilarious if his predecessor got off and McAwful ended up in choky.

jimmyk

Catching up, can someone with more patience or sleep than I had sort out this sentence from narc's 3:58?

Last year, a unanimous Second Circuit panel also reversed Judge Rakoff’s holding that a New York state law banning surcharges on credit card purchases was unconstitutional.

I think there are three negatives, with the end result being that surcharges are still banned (which they should not be IMO), but I gave up.

Beasts of England

Althouse linked to the same article, and Titus (out and proud!) ripped up Teh Ghey Chorus using words that would make Trump blush. lol

jimmyk

Of the 100 members of the Gay Men's Choir how many do you think are gay?

Somehow I think it's a bit less daunting for a Protestant, say, to sing in a Catholic choir than for a straight man to sing in a Gay Men's choir, so my guess is nearly all. But perhaps I am behind the times.

maryrose

Then they should give the office of governor to Cuccinelli who came in second
That is the law I would like to see established.
When Blago was sent to prison his Repub opponent should have become governor.
If you are a crook and still run for office you should step aside and
Let the Repub who was a honest person representing the people of your state take the seat. You must be convicted of course.

jimmyk

I agree maryrose. Ted Stevens should have been given back his Senate seat (though I think the findings came too late for him), and all laws in which his replacement's vote was decisive (Obamacare) should be invalidated. Some chance, I know.

jimmyk,

Appreciate your comment but I didn't say they were Protestant or Jewish or Islamist but rather professionals for hire. It would not surprise me that in any combine trying to make headlines and sell themselves therer are ringers.

I'm not sure what kind of trophies are still available for the NeverTrumpers, but Mona Charen deserves one for this stupidity:

If Hillary Clinton is elected president, a united Republican party will oppose her. Assuming Republican control of the House, she will not be able to pass a single piece of liberal legislation.

How can she write and publish something so demonstratively false? Perhaps someone should ask her about AFFH...

Could this be a warning shot against Hillary, since McAwful is definitely a part of the extended Clinton Crime Syndicate?

This is the important quote:

“It’s pathetic,” he said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. "I don’t know what happened to Mitt, but it is weird; it is bizarre. Having a guy like that go berserk in public makes you wonder what his problems are."

It certainly belongs in the curiouser and curiouser file, James D. I thought McAwful had triangulated the Ø and Hill camps with aplomb.

MM,

Jelousy is a serious mental illness and not immune to past POTUS candidates. He is just pissed he didn't get the same grass roots support or had the balls to take down Obama and Candy at the same time. He would President today if he had done a GWHB on Romney like 41 did on Dukakis.

I should also say if Ryan had taken a Trump strategy of "no Prisioners" on Uncle Joe. Both of them demonstrated the lack of passion and interest they continue to be defined.

Both erred on the side of caution rather than being bold.
I think because of tactics some men can't bend toward Trump.
At some level I think they know he is going to win it and they feel one they identify with should have won it.However , each day I am more certain Hillary won't be able to weather this combination of storms.
DSW has really pissed off Bernie.
Nevada and the. Stealing Kentucky were unfair situations and Bernie is all about fairness. For those who have not yet voted: Cruz just picked up some delegates in Washington.

Going to my 35th college reunion this weekend, and just filled out the "class survey." I was relieved to find that under the "Your gender" question, the choices were M, F, or "Other, please specify" with a box. I'm not sure that would pass muster with the current administration, as it seems to treat the non-M or F genders differently, analogous to having those single-person restroom options that were specifically rejected the D of E.

There were also questions asking your opinion on global warming, availability of guns, global terrorism, etc., with answer options ranging from something like "Catastrophe/End of the world" to "A good thing." Very happy to show some diversity in this.

On the other hand, they asked about what "green products" I own, with options like solar panels, electric car, etc. Unfortunately two of the options were "No Car" and "Bicycle," which, being the honest person I am, I had to check. We'll see how the results turn out.

Possibly so, JiB. In my limited but not negligible experience with choirs/choruses, I'm always amazed at how many really good and experienced singers there are out there, even for just amateur one-off type pickup groups, but I would agree this group might have an agenda that would tempt them in that direction if it would make a difference.

Lou Dobbs opens his show with a contrast between Hillary's willingness to debate Obama in 2008 and her unwillingness to debate Bernie now.

FOX Reporter: Clinton was noncommittal yesterday about participating in a FOX News Debate in California, which Sanders has agreed to do. (Plays clip of Hillary yesterday)

Hilary: "I haven't thought about it. We'll consider it."

FOX Reporter continues: This cycle there have only been 9 Democratic Debates so far. Clinton debated then Senator Obama 19 times during the 2008 Campaign, and sounded open to more of them.
(Plays clip of Hillary in 2008)

Hillary: "I just believe that this is the most important job in the world. It's the toughest job in the world. You should be willing to campaign for every vote, you should be willing to Debate, anytime, anywhere."

FOX Reporter Late in the day Bernie Sanders called on Clinton to keep her word here in terms of participating in a date here in California. He says the people of the Nations most populous State deserve a "serious Debate." Lou...

Lou smiles:)

DrJ

I must not be the sentimental sort. I've never gone to a reunion for any education level.

Lou: ...Potentially more serious trouble for the Clinton Campaign, specifically Hillary Clinton. The infamous Romanian hacker Guccifer, who said he easily broke into Clinton's Private Server, is now close to a Plea Deal with the Justice Department...Last month in a JailHouse interview he said he wanted to cooperate with the Government, and now he is apparently doing so. He is now expected to reverse course, plead Guilty to some of the charges in a Hearing that will be held Wednesday morning...He was the first source to expose Hillary Clinton's misuse of a Private E-mail server while she was Sec/State.
