A former graduate assistant of mine from 1993 is an associate dean of students at Pomona College.

Miles Davis had a quote about Wayne Shorter after Shorter fell in "love" that is appropo to 20 plus years' effect on a once rapier wit and keen intellect:

"He lost the fire."

This was that exchange i referenced earlier:

Really?

XI had to instruct Trump on the NorKs? How embarrassing.

His pride is askew. Will he develop intellectual curiosity at age 70?

It would be smart to leave early if a good replacement could be named as it would give him a leg up in the election.

"Good" in whose eyes?

One of Megyn Kelly's prime selling points was her looks. There are plenty of males who could have taken that slot.

The Hill: US preparing charges against Julian Assange: report
BY NIKITA VLADIMIROV

So a Russian,
at the Anti-Trump rag The Hill,
is writing a story saying that the Russian Puppet regime of Donald Trump,
is preparing charges against Assange of Wikileaks,
for leaking documents hacked by the Russians to help Trump defeat Hillary,
so Trump could be President,
and then he could prosecute Assange,
for leaking the Russian Documents,
which got Trump Elected.

It's almost like a Bizarro world version of:
"The House That Jack Built."

This is the White House that Trump Putin built.

This is the Russian Dictator who rigged the election that led to the White House that Trump Putin built.

This is the curb that Hillary fell off after she was drugged by the Russian Dictator who rigged the Election that led to the White House that Trump Putin built.

This is the bed that the prostitutes peed on to fill up the Dossier that ratted out Putin, that preceeded the curb that Hillary fell off after she was drugged by the Russian Dictator who rigged the Election that led to the White House that Trump Putin built.

mad jack: I'm not that big of a hockey fan but I was cheering for the Bruins when they won the Cup and was following the games on their respective threads at Sons of Sam Horn, which had some really knowledgeable and funny fans.

On Thursday’s Mark Levin show, Landmark Legal Foundation has filed a request with the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA). The request asks the secret court to order an investigation into the leaking of surveillance activity conducted on members of Donald Trump’s team, in accordance with the rulings of FISA. The filing cites a flurry of recent published reports that show an enormous amount of leaked classified information has been used for political purposes in opposition to President Trump. Landmark respectfully suggests that the Court direct the government to complete its investigation and report its findings to the Court within 90 days.

It's a reality show, in which ATLANTA-FULTON COUNTY JAIL, is allowed to be USED as a SJW incubator of LIBERAL BULLSHIT.
Who and WHAT would allow a CITY or COUNTY LOCK UP to be made to appear COMPLETE and UTTERLY dysfunctional and VIOLENT/RACIST??
Who, WHOM and Why would this HORSE SHIT, be allowed to FESTER and be MADE INTO TEEEEVEEEEEEEE???
This is not a difficult question.

Obama, Holder and Lynch are CRIMINALS. They are MARXISTS and RACIST black Social Justice Warrior CRIMINALS. Their dysfunction and the willingness of the MFM to support their CRIMINAL RACIALLY BIASED IDEOLOGY is EPIC.
The IRS, the DOJ, the FBI, and NOW OBVIOUSLY, the CIA, and VARIOUS OTHER UMPTEEN INTEL ORGS have been used by these BASTARDS to USURP and to DISALLOW other Americans Constitutional Rights in a way NEVER BEFORE SEEN.
OBAMA needs PRISON TIME.

Once again. 60 days in Atlanta, is a TEEEEEEVEEEEE show, that shows ATLANTA and FULTON COUNTY lock-up and County Jail, as a DRUG, RACIST and a messed up DYSFUNCTIONAL CIVIL RIGHTS violating MACHINE.

How on EARTH would ATLANTA or FULTON COUNTY allow OR be PART and PARCEL of such a BULLSHITTACULAR PILE OF CRAP????

I think MOST OF US, understand it. Ojugears, Stedman and Lynchette, all SHIT, where they EAT.

Here's how Josh Chafetz handled his announcement that he wasn't standing for Re-Election:

Chafetz: ...one day after he announced he would not seek reelection to his seat in 2018......Chaffetz wrote, "Thanks for having me on yesterday, I appreciate it. I will continue to weigh the options, but I might depart early. The state needs to figure out how this works."

In contrast, here's how my Congressman Don Young announced his intentions today:

Don Young: "...I believe in what I can do for the state of Alaska; I'm good at what I do; and you've been very supportive … So I'm filing early so those that might think about running or (that) I might retire, you can forget it. I like what I do. I'm good at what I do. I'm right for Alaska."

Like him or hate him, you know where he stands and you know he wants to do the job.

so yesterday red is working from home for a while and comes flying down stairs telling me to look outside. a mother goose and her 7 goslings of pure fluff had walked up street and then up driveway. they looked like make way for ducklings.

paused in the shade of crepe myrtle and then up rest of driveway, down stone steps and into backyard. once again sheltered before walking back and down the hill into the woods son created to get to neighbor house and pool.

from all the honking someone had gotten separated. guessing maybe they were coming from a creek and wanted to get back

Buckeye, any car enthusiast should be revolted by the mere existence of diesel fuel, which smells as bad as Curb Dive's pantsuits on a hot summer day. Detroit's dumbest idea ever, which is really saying something, was those diesel fueled four stroke rattletraps which combined the worst of all worlds to produce something that instantly triggered immense disgust without even knowing why. Everyone associated with those monstrosities are going directly to Hell.

Just walked down the stairs using a cane and continued walking around the house with said cane. No more Zimmer frames for me (walkers). This means I can start driving soon. Big weight off Mrs. JiB's shoulders running around for Frederick and the dogs. Back to routine in no time.

Got a big time infection of the knee joint last year and put in a rehab facility for 6 weeks. Finally, able now to get the knee replaced. Cannot believe the difference.

Captain Hate,
My opinion of Diesel engines is derived from follwing Indianapolis diesel buses back in the 70's in the summer, driving an un-air conditioned Datsun 510 with the windowsopen, which happenedto be at bus exhaust pipe level.

GACK! Talk about nausea and headache-inducing!

One of the great improvements in public transportation (and air quality) was the replacement of those buses to ones that run on natural gas.
