If the NFL had a brain they would have invited the US armed forces marching bands to perform at halftime.

What a bunch of maroons. Adam L is an embarrassment. Entire show is embarrassing for our nation. This will be the least desired job in the history of music going forward.

It's eastern Bronx and northwestern Queens combined due to gerrymandering, and shrinking relative population. (NY has lost Congressional districts as other states grow faster.)

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Let’s build a movement across borders to take on the billionaires, polluters and migrant baiters, and support a happier, freer and cleaner planet--

I guess Venezuela is a happy, free and clean place.
Riddle me this IncSoc man; just exactly why is it nobody ever "really tries socialism"?
Every time it fails, which is every time it's tried, we're told it has never "really" been tried. Why? Out of all the hundreds of tries shouldn't we have expected at least one bunch of delightful progs to have tried what they claim is the greatest thing since sliced bread?
They never seem to have any qualms about confiscating wealth, taking over the means of production and when needed killing anyone who stands in the way, so why can't they just "really try it" just once?
The fact is of course, it's never NOT been "really tried" and it works exactly as advertised every time. They spread the wealth around, which, being an ephemeral thing constantly in flux, soon is stolen and vaporized and a few pigs wallow while the masses starve and political liberties, which are inextricably tied to property and the freedom of markets, also evaporate.

That IS socialism; the tragedy of the commons combined with the kleptocracy and dictatorial corruption of Caligula and Napoleon the Pig.

sbwaters, D,

Well I don't know what to call it. Clout isn't the right word. She did talk with him on the phone


I assume someone set it up, since I doubt she knew who Corbyn was.

For some reason a lot of dems have decided she is a great spokesperson for them, which I find weird.

So it's become more selective, maybe they will blend her district with some slightly saner.

Enjoy Manly Beach daddy,

Catsmeat

Mom2Mom--you know how much I admire you. I am so sorry about your husband's death. I thought you might like this poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins--about what we ultimately are:

Cloud-puffball, torn tufts, tossed pillows | flaunt forth, then chevy on an air-
Built thoroughfare: heaven-roysterers, in gay-gangs | they throng; they glitter in marches.
Down roughcast, down dazzling whitewash, | wherever an elm arches,
Shivelights and shadowtackle ín long | lashes lace, lance, and pair.
Delightfully the bright wind boisterous | ropes, wrestles, beats earth bare
Of yestertempest's creases; | in pool and rut peel parches
Squandering ooze to squeezed | dough, crust, dust; stanches, starches
Squadroned masks and manmarks | treadmire toil there
Footfretted in it. Million-fuelèd, | nature's bonfire burns on.
But quench her bonniest, dearest | to her, her clearest-selvèd spark
Man, how fast his firedint, | his mark on mind, is gone!
Both are in an unfathomable, all is in an enormous dark
Drowned. O pity and indig | nation! Manshape, that shone
Sheer off, disseveral, a star, | death blots black out; nor mark
Is any of him at all so stark
But vastness blurs and time | beats level. Enough! the Resurrection,
A heart's-clarion! Away grief's gasping, | joyless days, dejection.
Across my foundering deck shone
A beacon, an eternal beam. | Flesh fade, and mortal trash
Fall to the residuary worm; | world's wildfire, leave but ash:
In a flash, at a trumpet crash,
I am all at once what Christ is, | since he was what I am, and
This Jack, joke, poor potsherd, | patch, matchwood, immortal diamond,
Is immortal diamond.

This admittedly difficult but beautiful poem is called "That Nature is a Heraclitean Fire and of the Comfort of the Resurrection," but you may well already know it.

RIP, Mr. Mom2Mom.

Jeff Bezos attends Super Bowl dinner without Lauren Sanchez

thanks fir the continuing updates, Ext. we never really know of course, but from the outside looking in I think Bezos got rid of a very classy lady in his first wife. i could have saved him $68 Billion with a layover in Manilla or Hong Kong.

Pay no attention to the people behind the curtain.

BTW, at that level there are always people behind the curtain.

Which makes what Trump did all the more amazing.

WP reports that @senatemajldr warned Trump against declaring a NE and that the Senate may pass a reaolution against it. Not because it is illegal for Trump to do. Instead, @senatemajldr will lose a bargaining chip with Trump if he gets funding for a signature thing on his own.

You can say that again,

The horde commenter doesn't understand that procopius was a cyanide dipped poison pen, or maybe he hasn't read secret history.

Catsmeat

Someone asked who said of Lillian Hellman that everything she said was a lie including "and" and "the"--that was Mary McCarthy whose fifth novel was the bestseller The Group (1963) which I read out of the paperbacks in our house as a teen. The word "pessary" confused me mightily. Now I find that McCarthy modeled the most interesting character on a Vassar colleague, Elizabeth Bishop, the poet--and I know a lot about Elizabeth Bishop and her poetry, so I wish I'd known then what I know now (as per usual practice, of course...)

What surprised you about Elizabeth bishop, catsmeat?

Now that I think about that marchetti Roman a clef bears a little resemblance to burn after reading the coens slapstick take on espionage. A frustrated company bureaucrat reaches out to the east bloc with some darkly humorous results, although there was little as annoying as George Clooney in it.

Bah.

narciso, at 14 I'd never heard of Elizabeth Bishop (or, really, much, lesbians--not in fiction at any rate). So I think I just meant that if I had known that Bishop was meant by the character "Lakey" AND I'd known all I know about Bishop, that would have been very interesting. But of course I didn't!

Joao Teixeira de Faria – known as John of God – achieved international fame after being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey and having a list of famous clients, including Bill Clinton.

Two months ago, his world crumbled after police discovered evidence that he was a mass murderer, baby trafficker, and sex slave ringleader.

Mirror.co.uk reports: The 77-year-old was arrested a week later in what prosecutors say could be the worst serial crimes case in the country’s history.

Faria’s own daughter, Dalva Teixeira, has also spoken out, called him a “monster” and claiming he molested her as a child.

The case has shocked Brazilians, many of whom regarded the so-called ‘psychic surgeon’ – famous for performing procedures such as removing tumours or cataracts with his hands and without anaesthesia – as a modern-day miracle worker.

I'm starting to think the SPLC is trying to troll me when they don't use capital letters for their acronym:

A Latino street gang leader and his son were sentenced in federal court Monday to lengthy prison terms for their role in a years-long campaign of racist terror and ethnic cleansing targeting African Americans in and around Los Angeles.

Since at least the mid-1990s, Latino street gangs across Los Angeles County have been targeting, beating and sometimes killing blacks in an attempt to drive them out of the region.

Just before Christmas 2006, Cheryl Green, 14, playing on her skateboard with a group of friends just south of 206th Street in Los Angeles, was shot dead in broad daylight by two men who approached the group and opened fire without saying a word. Two members of the 204th Street gang were later arrested in the killing.

jim nj, holding folks in our thoughts and prayers is often sufficient for each of our circumstances. God picks up from there.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA, earlier, on a distant thread, you offered to hold some projects needing attention for me. I have to warn you that's a risky endeavor. When I strike out on a quest to do some task I sometimes really strike out. Royally. There's a reason why I make my living as an engineer and not a mechanic.

Iggy, around that same time you suggested I could use some of MT's magic lubricant when I serviced my snow thrower. I'm beginning to think bar oil is magical. I used it when drilling a bit of 1/4" steel and didn't wreck any drill bits. Plus I have a lifetime supply now that I don't heat with wood anymore. OTOH I still own 3 chainsaws, one of which was my very first one bought in 1983. I really ought to Craiglist them this Spring.
