Rich, you probably have heard me talking about having PNEUMONIA for the last month or so.
I've had very very little alcohol, just because it didn't cross my mind. I went to a MARQUETTE BASKETBALL GAME, 2 plus weeks ago, and had a couple beers. My birfffffday was last week, I had a beer and a half and a shot of cuervo. THAT'S IT.
You are on the same page with several of my friends here. I choose to fight when and where I can.
I tell my young employees and interns, that when a problem comes along, THEY MUST WHIP IT.
Seriously, I've told those who I supervise that when they have a PROBLEM, that THEY need to find a SOLUTION. I say the same to my beloved Son.
I don't always know the solutions, but I seek them. Sometimes you get backed into a corner, and the solution isn't pretty.
WE'RE THERE.

I don't want to start an E Michael Jones drinking game or anything, but today I was listening to him talk about all the new abortion and infanticide innovations in the news.

He said women who have abortions suffer guilt. That's just a fact. I think we all know this.

Women who have guilt can deal with it in two ways. One way is to ask forgiveness from God and the other way is Political Action. Thus all the pussy hats running around trying to convince us that what they did is right.

lol ... sorry pin!

GUS

Rich, do what you think is RIGHT and equitable with your career. I got robbed for several years, at a job that I was EXTREMELY EXTREMELY successful at.
Relatively small potatos, in the scheme of things, but I was #1 Sales rep in 20 states. Chi-town and Henry have both seen me in action, and I did as well as you can in the job I had. I made 2 and a half percent high commission than ANYONE else in those 20 states. Big fish, small pond relatively.
I had a boss there, who was a putz and was NO GUS.
He told me that the customers did not want to KNOW ME, nor did they want a RELATIONSHIP with the SALES REP. He told me to sell and move on.
I asked him why he sold 1/4th what I sold???
He got fired, I got his job, and I made the business very successful. My assistant cheated me so many times, and I received so many complaints that it made my head spin.
I went on a 5 day vaca to COLO SPRINGS.....and when I came home, I KNEW, that I was done. I had maxed out what I could make, unless I wanted to DIE on the JOB, and I came home to more FRAUD.
I was being RECRUITED HARD, very hard, by a couple of CORPS, and had gone so far as the DRUG TESTS. My last day on the job, a CUSTOMER that I knew well came in. He is VERY VERY SUCCESSFUL and quite wealthy. I asked him for advice.
I WORK FOR HIM NOW, and I LOVE IT.

So!! I guess your CUSTOMER, DOES want to know you. I work hard, I have 3 offices including my HOME, I love the work, and believe it or NOT, my GUS alter ego, is not who I am. I navigate the world of personalities, and I can SELL. I CAN SELL.
I will never allow a BOSS, to dictate my happiness, life or future, for HIS/HER reasons.
Rich, do what you think is right FOR YOU. Clearly, you have skills that PAY YOU. Be in control of your destiny. You are NOT a COWARD.

GUS

Pin, YOU need a new avatar. Unfortunately, you could have a new avatar everyday if you wanted.
Kind of like me and my guitars. Sometimes, I'd like to show all of them, but in a month, I'd be on re-runs.
I had a GREAT week at my job, and I put in some hours and miles, despite being SICK. My second round of ANTI-BIOTICS is over, and I have NOTHING of consequence that I HAVE TO DO tomorrow. My work, allows me to work day and night, and MRS GUS, asked me tonight, why I ENJOY WORKING at my desk. In YOUR BEDROOM PIN!!!!
I love the work that I do, at home, BECAUSE, it's my work. FOR ME! If I accomplish something in my office/den, with the big TV on......I get paid. It's really not work, if you love it.
Like practicing guitar on a Hummingbird, a Takamine or a Rickenbacker. GLORIOUS.

GUS

Rich, a customer who I finished a deal with 2 weeks ago, gave me a case of crappy beer as a Thank you.
KUL beer. LaCrosse WI.
I'm on my 4th beer. Most I've had in over a month.
Not cutting it, but I'll do better soon.

They were foot soldiers and officers. They served in the regular army and the Waffen-SS. And, remarkably, they were also Jewish, at least as defined by Hitler's infamous race laws. Pursuing the thread he first unraveled in Hitler's Jewish Soldiers, Bryan Rigg takes a closer look at the experiences of Wehrmacht soldiers who were classified as Jewish. In this long-awaited companion volume, he presents interviews with twenty-one of these men, whose stories are both fascinating and disturbing.

daddy

I can understand the first guy who ever ate an Oyster---he was probably starving to death and was desperate. But who was the first guy who decided it might be a good idea to insert a rock of Crystal Meth up his rectum?

I'm adventurous, but that simply never struck me as something on my "to do" list.

GUS

Jim nj. What on earth would make anyone think that PUTIN has any power over US, DJT, or anything else that is SUPERIOR to his thuggish SHIT??
The WHOLE Russia hoax had 2 corners. One.....OBAMA needed to throw SHADE on all of the FISA, SPYING, UNMASKING and dirty shit he put in motion. FO SHIZ.
#2, the FULL COMMIE TARD BASE, and the useful college type idiots, needed to spread the hysterical horse shit. And the MFM helped.

Where does PUTIN derive any POWER that might rival US/U.S.? Money, economy, equipment, technology, WHERE, WHEN and HOW????
Djt never made deals with RUSSIA where he could have been blackmailed. And as PRESIDENT, if ANYONE thinks DJT has been weak on RUSSIA, THEY ARE FUCKING NUTS. Or dishonest.

GUS

Daddy, would it ever occur to you, that while wearing your S+M leather mask, that your CRYSTAL METH suppository might be more dangerous than VAPING??? And what with all the DISCO LIGHTS A-FLASHING it all gets so confusing. As a guy who has played in a ROCK N ROLL band since 16, I can say that.........WHAT THE FUCK.

The ANUS is an EXIT.

GUS,

Bob Crane from Hogan's Hero's creepy death showed us everything we ever needed to know about that behavior and it grossed the carp out of me, but apparently among LA Newscasters it was an instruction manual.

They never get to Syria, but it's interesting to hear them talk about the pending judges and other Trump appointments.

GUS

Agreed Daddy, the deviancy and the descent into sick lust and filth is hard for me to grasp. Bob Crane was seeking a high that could never be obtained. Like dozens of rock stars who have died on heroin. But it's hard to imagine going from A to B then to C and so on. I think in many cases, like this LA TV Freak, the succombing to EXTREMELY weird and totally out of control sexual proclivities, is it's own end game.
Sometimes, things you imagine or fantasize about, need to be rejected as freakish and just plain wrong. In the case of LA METH ANUS BOY, ........what would be the next level of depravity?? Think of the level of planning and the complete rejection of all inhibitions TO THE MAX, that his freakish stuff included.
There is no way that this dude was going to be satisfied without going further and further.
Married with kids, well known. GOLF is a hobby.

jim nj

Gus,

I think Putin and his schemes and declarations of how powerful Russia is are BS intended for domestic consumption.

Russia is no longer a superpower. Yes, it has a lot of nuclear weapons. We would suffer greatly if he ever launched them, but Russia would wind up in the stone age and China would suddenly find new room for expansion.

Russia's ability to project power is minimal.

I might have been rash in suggesting we could take out their naval fleet in a day or two. Yes there might be consequences I can't foresee, but their ability to rapidly replace losses doesn't exist.

GUS

Oh, and Daddy, is it a coincidence that this type of behavior is more common in places of little moral value??
Tommy Lee got married on Valentines Day.
#4. After sex video's with starlets and nude performers....what do you do for an encore?

GUS

I completely agree Jim nj. Anyone of any political substance, would recognize that RUSSIA, is a muzzzzled barking DOG.
OBAMA and RODHAM comletely embarrassed themselves, if that is possible. For the love of Gawd, the old CACKLING pretend SEC STATE, brings a fucking OFFICE MAX BUTTON to the FOREIGN MINISTER of RUSSIA, and makes an ASS out of herself. Jim, that kind of shit emboldens your opponent. If I was having a fist fight in high school, and my opponent acted like a vapid coward, I'd recognize that no matter how big and bad he was.....I OWN HIM.
It's completely obvious to me. Obama talking smack, and pretending to be a Basketball player???? I know very famous professional athletes. Donald Driver, Aaron Rodgers and others. You cannot bluff them.

jim nj

Gus,

Working and solving problems isn't work if you enjoy doing it.

Do you give your interns and assistants the authority to match their responsibilities?

That was always a bugaboo for me. Don't expect me to fix something if I don't have the requisite power to solve the problem.

Is it impolite to ask what you sell? Main reason I ask is that I thought you had something about the ability to buy, or did I misread that.

GUS

Great question Jim. I empower those whom I have hired or agreed to mentor. I treat them like family, I spend hours and hours with them traveling or going on calls. I try my very best to be a role model, but I also recognize that they are young and have a different world view. I sell REAL ESTATE.
I'm a licensed broker in all types of REAL PROPERTY. I came from a RETAIL background, and I sold myself short for years. I've always done well, but I finally took the risk to test my own metal. The owner of my firm approached me a few months ago, and asked how in HECK, I pulled off a deal that several agencies had failed at.
I flapped my hand to illustrate, that it was my MOUTH. He laughed. For what it's worth, I am very kind and persuasive in REAL LIFE!!!!!

GUS

Jim, solving problems is such a rush. As a guitar player and the leader of a decent band for years, I found myself in a side project with some very good players whom I really enjoyed being with. The boys actually named this band after me. The GUS GUSTAFFSON EXPERIENCE.
We were rehearsing in the 3rd floor attic of my first HOUSE. Cold as a witches tit, and fun nonetheless. There was a simple chord change, that our rhythem guitar player couldn't quite grasp.
I got it right away. I walked the band thru it over the PA.
THREE BLIND MICE
THREE MICE BLIND. It worked.

Gus,

My father taught me that I could walk away from a fight that made no sense even if they called me a coward.

I wasn't a coward I was just exercising good judgement.

Unfortunately, some people saw that as a weakness, when they kept after me, most were surprised at my ferocity.

You can walkaway only so many times when all of the pent up anger suddenly just explodes at the latest aggression directed toward you.

The bullies never realized that I didn't fear them. I was just willing to avoid stupid fights. When they finally pushed too far I stood up to them.

What was really funny about it was that I was tall for my age, lanky and very quick. I didn't have a lot of weight on me, but I was undisciplined as a fighter. I'm a righty who didn't know about shuffling my feet to keep the right foot out front. So if I backed someone up with a right I moved my left foot forward and hit him with a left, moved my right foot forward and hit him with a right.

As soon as I connected I just advanced and kept advancing. No counter punches, no blocked punches, just me wailing away. No one could counter a righty who turned southpaw turned righty turned southpaw.

GUS

Jim, btw, my Dad was Jim, my FIL IS Jim........I learned from DAD TOO. I learned how to punch, I learned how to face down a Bully, I learned that when threatened, it is your duty to protect yourself, and those that you love.
I had a bully hit me and punch me and try to intimidate me in Catholic Grade School. He was big, I was small, he had been flunked or held back and was even bigger than me as a result.
He would punch my shoulder and try to dominate me.
I told Dad. Dad said, next time he punches you....WARN HIM. Tell him that if it continues, you will break his nose.
I HIT THAT FUCKER SO HARD, he bled all the way to the OFFICE. I warned him, he hit me, I connected square on his nose. I saw him years later in a local bar. I was now a college athlete, and he was a drunk with a crooked nose.

jim nj

Real Estate, OK, that makes sense to me.

GUS

Jim, I managed in retail for a long long time.
Again, I sold myself short. My pal KEV has told me FOREVER, to NEVER SELL YOURSELF SHORT.
I settled, and truthfully, I did as well as a RETAIL DUDE could do. And I paid in hours and effort and 7 day weeks, and finding outside business, I mean business that ....I WENT TO, rather than it coming to me. Thinking outside the normal box. Again, Chi-town and Henry could verify my story. I got a client list and a who is who in MILWAUKEE, that has served me well.
Once again, I worked my ass off, and I missed many many family things. My priority was to PROVIDE, and now I recognize that PROVIDING can mean other than dollars. NO REGRETS.
I love every day that I wake up alive. I DO.
You know, I live on a LAKE, and I have a POOL, and I have a beautiful wife and Son. I am now learning how to RELAX and let my BRAIN earn my living, and not my time in a STORE. I have an office near GREEN BAY, and I've made incredible progress making my COMPANIES RISK a success. No one else in the COMPANY wanted to put in their CHIPS. I did, and an intern turned colleague who is 24, is benefitting from it too. Life is good.

The story sounds like a great big hassle to me.

Real Estate sales is tough to break into. Somewhat similar to stock brokerage sales. They train you up and set you loose to try and build a business. With some luck they set you up with a declining salary that your commissions should replace, assuming you succeed.

The investment firm I worked at as a market data systems analyst took an entirely different approach. The standard in stock brokerage is that 20% of your clients deliver 80$ of your income.

This firm set up joint accounts with the brokers and the trainees. 50/50 split, if the trainee could call the 80% that weren't generating much income and convert them into a live client they got to keep them and after 5 years they owned 100% of the commissions.

It was brilliant. A young broker gets to warm call an existing client as an "assistant." If he/she can build new business they now own the client.

If you build a rapport with that client you can ask for referrals. Mr/Mrs so and so, we've gotten off to a good start, I have a little extra time, is there anyone else you know that benefit from my services? May I use your name? Another warm call.

GUS

Or a port of EXIT.

GUS

Who are WE to JUDGE. I mean, the dude had a TV GIG, he liked DISCO. WE ALL LIKE DISCO.
He just wanted a little ME time, with some GRINDR MAN. WE ALL WANT ME TIME WITH A GRINDR MAN.

So he has one METH ROCK TOO MANY up his HINDR.

But for the grace of......

GUS

Jim, I took a HUGE risk. I left a very good paying job.....ALMOST ALL COMMISSION, and I got my LICENSES, and ZERO SALARY. My choice, my risk.
I had to quit, and I had options. I probably would have killed myself if I hadn't quit. In getting licensed completely, I recognized that I was capable. A 4 hour exam took me 55 minutes and I ACED IT. But again, I took a BIG RISK.
I'm over the hump and I have not looked back. Some of my successes are paying off now, and one of my bigger relationships, might set me up for life.

jim nj

I've tried not to comment on this bizarre death. I've never heard of this form of "ingestion."

I suspect some other person was involved with this and it may have been that other person who came up with the idea.

Look for an indictment.

jim nj

GUS,

Been there, done that. When I started out as a broker I had to have a Real Estate license to sell Real Estate Investment Trusts. I had to have an Insurance License to sell annuities.

Moving into Real Estate sales with no backup is a true leap of faith. I'm glad it worked out for you.

You Floridians just enjoy every second of it. Especially the sun, which I surmise from your posts still exists. It's like Seattle here.

Don't bother to feel badly that the cost of that great weather of yours is the worst I've ever experienced here, 300 miles directly north of you JiB. That warm air you're enjoying is hitting the cold stuff from the north, causing big cloud formations filled with rain that stretch from AL to NJ.

Sun shone for about two hours Thursday. That was it for the week. Another wet, cold grey weekend here. Very unseasonable.

MissMarple2

Good morning!

I was listening to Dan Bongino's podcast last night. He is very good at explaining all of this FBI coup stuff in ways I can understand it. I highly recommend it if you are looking for an hour of something to listen to while you are puttering or something.

Here is the point he made, and it makes perfect sense.

Remember when Rosenstein took Mueller over to meet the president the day before Mueller was appointed special counsel?

Bongino thinks that Rosenstein knew he was in trouble for signing those FISA warrants. McCabe was making him nervous because he was sloppy. Sessions was already recused, so Rosenstein knew he could appoint a special counsel.

Bongino thinks that given both Mueller and Rosenstein's personalities, Rosenstein took Mueller over to meet Trump so that he could show Mueller how crazy Trump is. (Bongino says that Trump, who he has met several timies, is NOT crazy, he's just a business guy who gets straight to the point and who doesn't suffer fools.)

But Mueller, whom I have NEVER seen smile, and Rosenstein, who seems to be like every nerd I have ever met, wouldn't understand someone in the Oval Office with that type of personality. Hence nuts ....and later on why they discussed the 25th amendment.

That really made sense to me, and also solved the black hat/white hat problem in my mind.

What do you guys think?

Question:

Do I send my sons the the Barstool guy's account of "what happens now?" and the coverage of the KLA anchor's death from the crystal meth butt plug OD in the company of his Grindr buddy at a seedy motel?


Because I realize I failed while raising them to warn them off Asian massages and rectal administration of crystal meth, as well as not meeting people via Grinder (it didn't exist when they were in high school).

Seriously, I've got the email all written---but how much flack will I get back if I hit "send"??? Will they block me for life, or just call their dad??

GUS, “KUL beer”?? This customer likes you?

I’m no kind of beer aficionado but Kul (isn’t there an umlaut over that ‘u’?) is garbage. I prefer Miller Lite over it to give you an idea.

Jack is Back!

40 minutes since last comment. Is everyone still asleep?

amom, lot of sea fog this morning but sun is trying to burn it off. Expecting 80F by noon. Sorry for your conditions. Frederick got freezing rain yesterday at Canterbury.

The MSM won't say much about the Oval Office meeting with the Chinese, but the boys on Wall Street will.

Kraft is a widower. He’s doing nobody wrong.
There’s something to this we don’t know yet.

I have zippo sympathy for someone worth $6 billion who goes to a strip mall for a 200 dollar tugjob. Presumably he's not stupid, so he can see that the employees aren't that thrilled with their job and their life - sex slaves rarely are. And that, that they're basically performing acts against their will, has got to be part of his attraction to it, and that's sick. The cops did the right thing investigating and busting these parlor owners, and let the chips fall where they may for the "clients"; if you don't want to get caught doing disgusting things, don't do disgusting things.

MM "What do you guys think?"

I like Bongino a lot. But he is prone to mix supporting speculation with known facts (like we all do), so I have come to be careful to know which is which when I listen to him. Since he thinks the same way I do, it is hard sometimes not to get caught up in his "certainty".

As to needing somebody to explain what this coup stuff is all about, well nobody here, especially MM, needs help in understanding THAT. MM has led us to more stuff on that than anybody including Bogino.

Good morning, James.

You doing OK today?

‘Box, I hear you, but to blame Kraft for all the sins of the world - which you know will happen, and which you’re hinting at - isn’t right. The claims “Kraft is involved in sex trafficking” are already circulating.

I’m not arguing he didn’t break the law, or that he should be let off that hook. His is far from the worst crime in the world, that’s all.

If Kraft were not a known close friend of Trump, would a tree fall in the forest?

I duuno--that Fla bust seems like a scene out of "The Best Little whorehouse in Texas". If the cops had reason to believe the girls working there had been trafficked, wouldn't it have made more sense to simply haul them in and question them and shut it down instead of letting it go on for four years. I kinda thing it's a pr stunt by LE.
