After further reflection with friends and family, we know that none of us have ever been to a party. Ever. Truth be told, we're not even sure if I went to medical school.

MM, it'll winnow down before the primaries start.

When it becomes clear that there's no donor money coming in, and no media airtime, a bunch of the current candidates will self-deport themselves out of the race.

How was it bluto put it to flounder?

matt - deplore me if you must

The U.S. is now the largest oil & gas producer in the world and they just keep discovering more reserves. We are now a net exporter as well, which will help with the trade deficit.

All of this has been talked down by Obama and the Democrats, who actually want to ban conventional energy sources despite the U.S. being the leading country in reducing carbon emissions.

Top down edicts don't work. Statist solutions don't work. They stifle creativity and innovation in favor of the rent seekers.

Now they want a total ban. The Luddites have been exposed.

The Dems are going to need a clown car to convey all of their candidates, probably a Trabant.

So another gang related shooting in NYC. I thought it was a gun free zone. Silly me.

Well, Hank is still worried about Guam tipping over. I'm sure it keeps him awake at nights. Lewis, from what I saw in the NFL SJW ad, is very, very frail. Cohen, is, however, a tool.

Matt,

Top down edicts don't work. Statist solutions don't work. They stifle creativity and innovation in favor of the rent seekers.

It's true about stifling creativity and innovation, but... top down edicts and statist solutions work very well for statists and rent seekers. The problem is the growing number of voters who fall for it when the statists and the rent seekers say, "It's for the children." Maybe they mean their own children.

Taking forever to catch up.

I wonder if Maduro has his version of Baghdad Bob when the carp hits the fan?

Not just fracked oil but also fracked natural gas. Not only do American engineering-construction companies build the export terminals but are leading the world in building the import terminals. We control the technology which has a lot of redundant safety systems.

A win-win-win, the last one is the NG export numbers. When you can control the full cost spectrum, you are in the proverbial world-wide energy driver's seat.

https://thehill.com/policy/defense/428346-russian-navy-has-new-weapon-that-makes-target-hallucinate-and-vomit-report

The weapon fires a beam similar to a strobe light that affects the target's eyesight, making it more difficult for them to aim at night. During testing, volunteers reportedly used rifles and guns to shoot targets that were protected by the weapon. The volunteers reported having trouble aiming because they couldn't see.

I suppose this is a great weapon if the Russians expect to conduct naval combat operations against enemy ships within firing distance of handheld rifles and guns.

Crawling out from under my rock after a week.

First, Momto2, heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Feb 2 has a special place in my heart. My youngest sis just had her 78th BD and my best bud from grade school turned 74. I think you hubs may have decided that leaving on his BD was a nice gesture to wrap things up.

Out here in the great NW, we've finally had a taste of winter. We saw some snow (not sticking) and got down to (gasp!) 22F last night. Yeah, go ahead and laugh. The good news is that I got a really good -3 sigma calibration on my heating system. I designed it to hit the high 20s before having to cut over to a propane boiler, but this morning with fairly high winds and 22F all night, the floors were just at 70F leaving the rooms more like mid-60s and the Garage-mahal and Jane's guesthouse at their usual 60 setpoint. Not that I mind using the boiler, except that it is a pain to cut over and propane is pretty expensive on the island compared to about $0.02/KWH after allowing for the gain from the heatpump system.

Momto2, so sorry for your loss. May God give you peace that passes all understanding.

The WaPo pushback makes neither the paper nor Fairfax look good.

"I am pleased to announce that David Bernhardt, Acting Secretary of the Interior, will be nominated as Secretary of the Interior."

Just musing, I don't follow at any level of detail. But it seems a lot of appointments are assistants moving up, not "stars" brought in from outside.

I wonder if Dems have successfully frightened a lot of potential officials to the point where selection is limited. A shame for the country if so. We need qualified people to serve.
