In other news:



Is it wrong to answer poll demographics as a gay, but appalled moderate?

Not that I care, unless the FBI is running the polls as some sort of trap. (By the wording, it was a push poll by Ryan's Dem challenger).


A commenter at WSJ today (slightly edited):

“Need” now means wanting someone else’s money.

“Greed” means wanting to keep your own.

“Compassion” is when a politician arranges the transfer.

Nothing new to long time JOMerz but still quite pithy.


Here's the rest of the story Miss M.

“Nothing that we have seen so far links this to some big crew, nor do we think this has anything to do with the ballots themselves,” said Jacob Gholson, a postal inspector team leader for Alaska.

“The ballots were delivered so the postal service did get that mail out as they were supposed to. Unfortunately there are people out there that don’t really want to operate within the law and decided to try to go steal mail from mailboxes.”

Election officials don’t believe any ballots are unaccounted for, and the ballots that were found have had their bar codes voided. New ballot packages are being sent to the affected voters.

“We know that nefarious activity takes place across the municipality, not limited to mail theft and because this is Anchorage’s first vote by mail election we knew that the threat is there so we do have procedures in place to mitigate any kind of election fraud,” said Carolyn Hall with Vote By Mail.

“We commend the citizens who came across that mail and did the right thing,” she added. “They saw that ballot packages were likely tampered with and then they made sure they reported it to the post office and then to us. We really appreciate that, that’s really important to the integrity of the election.”

Anyone with information on the mail theft can contact the US Postal Inspection Service at 877-876-2455.

Maybe thats where my missing Ballot wound up---in some Chugiak snowbank.

.@realDonaldTrump is a leader that believed in us and gave @jaredkushner, myself and @GaryCoby the trust to execute the perfect plan. Never saw it coming. Still smile at the articles saying we had no digital operation. Just proves news will just write whatever they "believe".

In the car I keep hearing radio reports about the EPA Head guy being in hot water for paying a cheap rental rate for using some energy company lobbyists residence. EPA Chief’s $50-a-Night Rental Raises White House Angst

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt leased a Washington apartment owned by a lobbyist friend last year under terms that allowed him to pay $50 a night for a single bedroom -- but only on the nights when he actually slept there."

It reminded me of Joe Biden charging Secret Service Officers rent for staying in his rental property while protecting him: Biden collects rent from Secret Service---$2,200 a month for cottage use

Anybody know the square footage and number if bedrooms in Biden's cottage so that I can be sure I should be as outraged at him as I'm supposed to be at the EPA guy?



sorry to hear about your friend Linda.

Also, you asked about the teacher's strike -- I read that the districts have given the teacher's permission for this strike, therefore it is legal.


Thanks Joan, that doesn't seen kosher, or halal.

Thursday, MaryRose.

Can't wait. Haven't been since NYE. My parents are going with me, and they stay on the casino floor more than I do. I'm thinking about going to the outlet mall Friday and scoping out the sales.

Texas Liberty Gal

maryrose - The thief on the cross went to heaven the same day he died "Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”" Luke 23:43 So what does the Catholic religion base its beliefs that those who confess their sins and accept Jesus as their Savior have to wait to get to heaven? I've never understood that.



I'm so sorry to read about the passing of your friend, Linda. Our prayers are with you and her family.


Because he had made a sincere declaration of faith.
