I was just going to post the same sentiment.
What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
Let us intimidate some of these Dems so that learn the meaning of breaking the law and the consequences that follow.
They have gotten away with murder for years.
They only arrest people like Blago who could blow the whistle on their corrupt wrongdoing.

DaveinMA, 4:34: Yesterday I posted comments about Saikat Chakrabarti, who is AOC's Chief of Staff. On twitter he called this woman the genius who is behind the NGD:

Rhiana Gunn-Wright is one of the architects of the #GreenNewDeal. In this week's episode of @ColumbiaUEnergy #ColumbiaEnergyExchange she joins host @JasonBordoff to describe the theory of change behind this sweeping policy: https://energypolicy.columbia.edu/green-new-deal-rhiana-gunn-wright

I clicked on one of her tweet threads and she is so full of enthusiasm and hope-e-ness about their plans that she's about to burst. Plus that, if people would just shut up and give them a chance, everyone would love this plan.

I am going to laugh so hard if it turns out that Rosatom is the foreign government-owned company that is fighting a grand jury subpoena request from Mueller that went all the way up to the SCOTUS.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-11/evidence-mounts-democrats-collusion-russia

Genuine question: Is there some other foreign government-owned company that is allied with Trump that Mueller could be going after? Whoever the corporation is keeping their identity unknown is getting treated like its classified Top Secret. Rosatom seems like the most likely choice since it checks several boxes but that is my confirmation bias kicking in.

Chiefs IMO do the morally proper thing and cut Hunt even though it hurt their chances to get into the Super Bowl while the Browns get a franchise running back for cheap.

Since more people are going no sugar/locarb there are some great new products available. Lakanto sugar substitute and maple flavored syrup is a nice respite from bacon and eggs every morning. Birch Bender makes a divine pancake and waffle mix using cassava,almond flour and coconut flour mixture (many Costcos carry it as does Whole Foods).Lakanto now also makes a powdered sugar and brown sugar substitute, chocolate bars and brownie mix which I haven't tried but those things of theirs I have tried are wonderful.
In the early days of Dr Atkins the choices were far more limited and to my taste largely unpalatable.No reason you can't , i.e., scrap the flavored yogurt with some nice whole fat yogurt , a few berries and a little lakanto for a virtually no carb substitute. (Do not talk to me about no fat or even low fat yogurt which to me tastes like I imagine wet chalk does.)

Saikat Chakrabarti just retweeted this:

Jeffrey Ventre: "I just printed & read House Res.109 aka the #GreenNewDeal v Ms. OCASIO-CORTEZ @AOC -- It's FANTASTIC & an easy read. Since there is so much BS, especially from TV punditry as to what's in it, you can access it here. It includes Hi-Quality healthcare 4 ALL"

Ventre is a physician and has 19 thousand followers.

The Browns must have signed Hunt cheap, then, because they already have an all-pro caliber young RB in Chubb who they're paying handsomely as a top 10 draft pick this year.

Clarice,

No fat is a dangerous advice. I add at least one fat choice every day. You need fat to burn fat. Go figure. My favorite fat iems tos fat slab bacon and Eggs. Seems to work everytime.

clarice

Yes, the high carb, lo fat diet was a bummer.

joan

Ordinarily I steer clear of reading anything written by people like Rhiana Gunn-Wright (or Saikat Chakrabati or AOC), but their enthusiasm and eagerness sort of fascinated me. When Chakrabati called Gunn-Wright a genius I went to her twitter thread and read what got him so excited. The following is from one of her TED talks, and she 'ain't gonna let people choose between equity and climate action.' (Don't fail to note she mentions that states and localities can place workers where they need them. And, she introduced me to a new word, upskilling. Well, it's new for me, maybe some of you have heard it.)

"it just so happens that lots of the policies that we need to help people participate in this economy are the same policies that people will need to benefit from the greening of our economy. and in fact they become MORE necessary in the context of a GND.

"M4A: in WWII, migration patterns changed. thousands moved for jobs. why wouldn't that happen in GND, given how much industrial growth we'd see and the nature of the work to transition from power from fossil fuels to power from renewable sources.

"unlinking employment from health care means people can move for better jobs, to escape the worst effects of climate, AND re-enter the labor mkt without losing HC from Medicaid (dumb asset limits

"similar case with paid family leave: how are women going to fully participate in the GND and make bank from the explosion in trades and other nontraditional jobs if they can't access affordable child care? how we gonna get to full employment

"and miss me with the "but we're already near full employment!" argument. go to my hood in chicago. if the black unemployment rate was the national unemployment rate, it would be a crisis.

"same with the jobs guarantee. JG offers perhaps the simplest way to build a real workforce development system in this country, which is CRUCIAL to a GND and the transition to a green economy

"it gives a single point of entry, offers opportunities for on the job training, can easily be coordinated with community colleges and public unis to provide paths for further upskilling, AND creates a paid way to retrain people.

"plus it can be structured so states and localities DECIDE where they want to place workers, so it meets the demands of the transition AND lets communities put workers where they need them. (plus you can use it to increase job quality in sectors where workers are exploited.)

"folks may be mad that the GND is not all about climate. but this is what a commitment to justice and equity means! this is what just policy looks like, especially in an economy as disfunctional as ours. don't like it? take it up with the leaders who let things get this bad.

"we KNOW what happens when nat'l mobilizations make justice negotiable. you think the racial wealth gap ain't connected to agricultural and domestic workers (aka black people) being left out of social security?

"you think black people being clustered in high poverty neighborhoods has nothing to do with blk vets being shortchanged by the GI bill?

"and again, miss me with the "but we can deal with that later. climate change is unique!" yes, but the great depression was also unique. when did at workers get included in SS? 1950. that's 15 years. FIFTEEN.

"you want folks to wait 15 years again for the rights they deserve? all because it's too "complicated" to try to make policies address more than one crisis at a time? NOT IN THE YEAR OF MY LORD 2019. we ain't got to let folks suffer like that

"so next time someone tells you that the GND is just a "laundry list" of random policies, remember:

"ISSA TRAP! we ain't gotta choose between equity and climate action. this mobilization is big enough for all of us. thank you for coming to my TED talk."

Extraneus

Yes, the high carb, lo fat diet was a bummer.

My brother lost a lot of weight on that, and then he went to low carb/high fat and gained it all back and more, yet he still believes the low carb theory. I personally think the diet has to match the person.

Threadkiller

I didn't find the quote, Tom, but I will take you at your word. Sorry for being presumptuous about your position on the relationship of "citizenship" and "allegiances."

Of course it leaves me clueless as to your reasoning for Harris's ineligiblity, but I won't press it any further unless you want to hash it out without accusations of false motives.

Your “ironic” would be my “glorious,” Ig.

Jane

Keto is supposed to be 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% carbs. My kitchen is being redone so I can't cook but this is what I had today.

Breakfast: 4 pieces of bacon wrapped around homemade peanut butter with 2 cups of coffee with butter, coconut oil, heavy cream and Cinnamon.

lunch I had bocolli salad with celery, raisins, grapes, bacon in Mayo with red wine vinegar and some fake sugar. Later I had a keto Reese's cup.

Cocktails - vodka is fine on keto - with charcuterie and fabulous cheese. Dinner was more broccoli salad because I can't cook.

Lots and lots of bacon in my life these days. The hardest thing about keto is how counterintuitive it is, so you don't get enough fat. Jib is right; fat eats fat so don't forget that.

DrJ

lyle,

I'm curious: What news source is replacing the WSJ for you? It is far from perfect, but they report on news that is difficult to find elsewhere. Personally, I've not found a good replacement yet.

sbwaters

Hey, Jane. Vodka and what?

lyle

Investors Business Daily, DrJ. Or online at Investors dot com.

I’ve been researching equity ideas for AI, med tech, and cannabis for one of my big clients and WSJ was completely worthless. Investors had some great stuff on all three.

WSJ essentially endorsing Klobuchar today was the proverbial straw.

I would think any red meat would be as good as bacon for keto.

As I’ve probably said, these extreme diets are next to impossible if you have a family (unless they happen to be on board), travel, or generally don’t have time to do all your own food prep.

Jane

A fatty meat is better: salami, prosciutto, sausage, that sort of stuff. Everything you used to think made you fat. And lots and los of cheese. I wrap my homemade Boursin cheese in lots of things. And my homemade peanut butter has nothing bad in it.

Jane

Jimmy, I think you are right. Just remember that fat eats fat while carbs just hang around forever. So when you lose weight on keto you don't end up with your skin hanging down. It tightens you up.(probably too much info)

D

Jane:
I like vodka and I like club soda.
As long as I can have a little bit of cheese I think I could make it.

On the flight to El Paso on Air Force One, Pres Trump was critical of @IlhanMN, and a tweet accused of being anti-Semitic. "I think she should be ashamed of herself," @POTUS told reporters. "I think it was a terrible statement. I don't think her apology was adequate."

I think I'm following Keto quite religiously. Very very lo carb, lots of fat and protein .virtually no sugar or grains. I have read this brain fog is really not that unusual when you start out. The difference for me over lo fat diets is that you are always hungry and the food is always unpleasant.
I'm perfectly happy with the food, but my body is taking it's time adjusting. (Well I'd be happier with a pizza and pasta diet if truth were told, but this is quite pleasant, and, for sure, Jane looks fabulous.

Apparently the grownup Dems have figured out that Ed Markey is the smart one in the Markey/Ocasio-Cortez "Green New Deal" team. That the grownup Dems seem to be correct in their assessment is not comforting.

I have raised guppies smarter than Ed Markey.

Some vintage Howie Carr: "Her co-sponsor on this preposterous attempt to plunge the economy back into the Stone Age is Sen. Ed Markey, “Mr. Frosty,” whose last job in the Dreaded Private Sector was driving an ice-cream truck in Malden in 1968. Of Mr. Frosty, Silber’s pal Billy Bulger used to say, “To a battle of wits, he comes unarmed.”"

Needless to say, nothing has changed when it comes to Mr. Frosty – or AOC."
