"Most of the Americans who have recently fallen behind on their car payments have low credit scores or are younger than 30 years old."

What a surprise - sub-prime car loans are tanking.

What a surprise - most of the tanking loans were issued through automaker's financing units.

"Scientists have discovered a possible second impact crater buried under more than a mile of ice in northwest Greenland."

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2019/02/12/new-research-finds-possible-second-impact-crater-hiding-under-greenland-ice/

Interesting since we only read of the first crater last year.

I wonder how many craters are yet to be found. And what their impact (pun intended) on climate change was.

Pictures from Our Border: It Doesn't Exist. Republicans' Decades of Promises to Secure the Border Are Just a Gigantic Lie They Tell the Rubes Every Two Years. Then They Go Back to Servicing Their Real Constituency, Big-Dollar Corporate Donors

At some point, we have to begin discussing a very brutal sanction which will hurt us as much it hurts them: Simply sitting an election out and letting them see how many votes their 10% liberal NeverTrump base and their corporate officer base deliver in a congressional election. It will be a near wipe-out. But how else can we make it clear that this is no longer acceptable?
I've previously discussed a less painful (for us) sanction: Picking out ten Congressmen and one or two Senators to make a very public example of. Primary them, and even if they win their primary: Vote against them in the general. And let the rest know we'll be making a list of people to made examples of next cycle, too.
It'll be worth it just to hear the NeverTrump cucks change their tunes and start whining, "But you can't throw elections just because you're angry!!!"

Captain Hate,

My problem with sitting an election out is that if the dems get control, I am afraid the entire country will end up like California and New York, and we will never get control back.

My sister the nurse and I were discussing news and television yesterday. She is a great fan of westerns. Those were the shows we watched growing up and she thinks that today's TV is crap, as it dwells on the negative.

She says westerns often were morality plays, and usually the violence was in defense of an obvious good.

We need entertainment that encourages and inspires, that teaches lessons, that doesn't depress and encourage bad behavior.

Our current political class preys on the worst characteristics of our population - envy, self-centeredness, ignorance of how government works, ignorance of economics and the Constitution.

Maybe what we need is for someone to take over a network and start such programming along with honest news coverage. Maybe Jay Leno, Mike Rowe, and Roma Downey could form a consortium and do it.

Westerns are almost always morality plays. Like professional wrestling but with better storylines.

Trump could have gotten rid of Sessions for 2 years and chose not to. Why? It's not like he didn't fire anyone else during that time.

Sessions played a role. When his role was complete, he was gone. Trump doesn't hire lifers, he hires role-players.
====================================
I saw this this morning and it got me to thinking about some of the people who have come and gone.

I don't know that the people who sign on all know this (although I think Scaramucci did) but I would not be surprised if this is President Trump's outlook. Not role-pllayers in a show, but role-players fulfilling a specific mission, and when it's done, the position needs to be filled by someone else.

I'm stunned. A CA court did something sane:

The California Supreme Court held that as a matter of law, the Plaintiff could not be considered a third-party beneficiary of the contract between her employer and ADP. Therefore, the Plaintiff could not maintain a breach of contract claim against ADP. Moreover, the Court held that the Plaintiff could not maintain a negligence or negligent misrepresentation claim against ADP.

as you should be. Your employer is responsible for your paycheck being correct. They enter all the data and code all the pay types, read the payroll register and sign off on it before printing / digitally filing checks.

Service providers do calcs, transmit ACH files to the bank, and occasionally print pieces of paper (ADP even hires retirees to deliver them).

Your employer enters garbage, and you want to sue me? Thankfully the CA SC is sane and says no.

The Democrats’ French Dilemma – American Greatness
Conrad Black

An eminent former cabinet member and I are having an amicable running debate about what level of concern is justified by the steadily more extreme espousal of lunatic policy positions by influential Democrats. Personal income top tax rates of 70 percent (Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders), nationalized health care (Kamala Harris), open borders and sanctuaries against federal immigration laws (most audible Democrats), the killing of live new-born children (flirtations by many, apart from the governor of Virginia, who took the initial plunge on his way all the way down last week), and now, a green dictatorship that would radically renovate every building in America, abolish road and air transportation, and require brigades of people to diaper flatulent cows (the inevitable Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey, inter alia). My well-travelled friend thinks that as the polls seem to support a good deal of this foolishness, it is very dangerous.

Thinking of Robert (Beto) O’Rourke’s painfully silly and significant comment from his speech in El Paso ("to work jobs that no one will take"), a parallel name came to mind:

Howard Roark.

“[Howard Roark] was asked for a statement, and he received a group of reporters in his office. He spoke without anger. He said:

'I can't tell anyone anything about my building. If I prepared a hash of words to stuff into other people's brains, it would be an insult to them and to me. But I am glad you came here. I do have something to say. I want to ask every man who is interested in this to go and see the building, to look at it and then to use words of his own mind, if he cares to speak.'

The Banner printed the interview as follows:

'Mr. Roark, who seems to be a publicity hound, received reporters with an air of swaggering insolence and stated that the public mind was hash. He did not choose to talk, but seemed well aware of the advertising angles of the situation. All he cared about, he explained, was to have his building seen by as many people as possible.”

If Trump surrenders on the wall - and this deal IS a surrender - he is committing political suicide. This is the single most important issue to his base. They will walk, and his re-election will be toast. Count on it.

I find this odd that Bozell is pushing such a negative view. Pelosi said not one dime for the wall, and he got $1.37 billion, plus has figured out other ways to get money. (Not including El Chapo's stash.)

Why does Bozell want to push the idea of Trump as a failure? Was he a Never Trumper?

Trump is expected to sign the deal unless there are any late additions, the people familiar with his plans said. In a cabinet meeting Tuesday, Trump said the bill was “not doing the trick” and that he planned to try to amend it. “It’s always nice to negotiate a little bit, right?” he said. Senior Republican lawmakers said it wasn’t realistic to reopen negotiations at this point, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) urged the president to sign the bill, calling it a “pretty good deal.”
