I have a soft spot for Tiger Woods and Tom Brady. Maybe because they are in the daughter's age cohort. I think Tiger's comeback is called redemption.

Tom R

I don’t follow golf so I don’t really care who wins. I know there are some Bama alumni who are pretty good but that is the extent of my knowledge of the PGA.

What I don’t get about Tiger Woods is how popular he still is after all the negative things that have come out him like his cheating on his wife with porn stars, drug addiction and suspected PED usage. Superstar athletes like Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Lance Armstrong are now reviled for PED usage. How did Tiger maintain his popularity despite all those negatives?

Melinda

The reason Team Hillary! keeps up the “Release The Full Report!!11!!” mantra is for the sole future talking point that any redaction, any redaction at all, is the one that exonerates her or any of their cohorts and therefore it was a put up job by the “hand picked Attorney General”.

Mark it Down now, so you can laugh at it when it happens.

I despised the arrogant Tiger Woods for years.

I am THRILLED he won today!

I related at the horde a novel that I had mentioned some years ago, from NPR's intelligence correspondent, the villain of the story was someone not unlike John brennan. I should have added one of Jack arbor max Austin series hes a fmr Russian spetznaz operative turned us citizen in this case framed for a bombing in west brampton

There doesn’t seem to be definitive proof that he’s a Muslim. It is interesting that he got sworn in on a copy of The Constitution. He has as much respect for that as Clinton does his big Bible.

Congratulations to @TigerWoods., a truly Great Champion!

Jack is Back!

PGA first this year, Jane. Strange doings in the world of golf.

BTW, this could be Tiger's year to equal Jack's majors. PGA is at Bethpage Black where he won the Open in 2002, and the Open is in Pebble Beach where he won the same Open by 15 strokes in 2000.

I think everyone associated with golf from players, writers, and fans will be salivating.

That said, Black is not Augusta even for a PGA. If you can't find the fairways there, it is not like not finding the fairways at Augusta. I don't see a -13 there but stranger things have happened. I think Tiger was -1 when he won the Open there. And the fans are brutal - not orderly, cordial Patrons like at Augusta but like what you would expect from blue-collar Nu Yokers.

Of course the most famous Ben Wright quote of all:

"women are handicapped by having boobs. It's not easy for them to keep their left arm straight, and that's one of the tenets of the game. Their boobs get in the way."

In an interview, not on TV. Got him fired.

I know several good women golfers who absolutely agree with that quote, JiB. One claims anything larger than a B cup is a disadvantage.

Ah, well. Congrats to Tiger.

The World’s Cheapest Hospital Has to Get Even Cheaper - By Ari Altstedter,Bloomberg Businessweek March 26, 2019, 1:00 AM EDT.

Heart surgeon Dr. Avi Shetty has developed a production line approach (my words) to the provision of medical services.

[This is a long article which I read while waiting to see a surgeon.]

"Although Shetty often performed free surgeries for the poorest of the poor, he reasoned that the only way to sustainably serve large numbers of people in need was to make it a business."

"In 2000, Shetty secured a $20 million investment from his father-in-law, the owner of a successful construction business, to create the first Narayana hospital, which would put assembly line surgery into action. (Narayana was the benefactor’s middle name.)"

I may have to start checking out SNL again, now that the "Trump-is-a-Russian-Agent" meme is dead as a doornail. The truly ridiculous people now aren't on the right! In addition to the crazy jailbird routine last night, they featured a popular Korean boy band, BTS (short for Bangtan Boys, although they're well into their 20s now). They're all cute as the dickens, and it's hard to believe they can actually sing when simultaneously doing that really energetic dancing. I know whereof I speak, because when I exercise at home, I often "mirror" (loosely speaking!) Korean groups — something that you definitely don't want to do with any witnesses around.

There are other groups I like better, and I'm not exactly sure why BTS has taken over top billing on the charts, but it's nice to see what an enthusiastic reception they've been getting here. I got pretty sick of American rap-based music a long time ago, but it's fun to see the Korean take on that genre, as in BTS' 2nd SNL number Mic Drop.

The Clinton Foundation was the recipient of 100's of millions of $ from not only US donors, but also from foreign governments. I believe the foundation has never been audited.

The Australian government granted the foundation USD (Maybe AUD) 20 million for medical assistance projects in New Guinea and Indonesia.

The Australian POC for the grants was Foreign Minister Alex Downer.

I believe this is the same Alex Downer (Then Australian High Commissioner (Ambassador)to the UK), who ran into George Papadopoulos (a member of the Trump campaign's foreign policy advisory panel) in a London bar.

Melinda

MR-

As I watch the cash sources suddenly dry up for her, and her servicers like 1MDB get wrung for the misdeeds, it all catches up to her as the Foundation will get liquidated back to its donors, after the tax fraud unwind. Although we have seen most of the crimes for ages, many are just now learning how vast theirs are. The slow march of "inaction" to date, is to keep her loyalists on the sidelines and not join AnteFa at the barricades, all the while working towards "Well everyone knows that!" about all of them. It will not be "Probation" for any of them. And seeing as how they used "Out of the Country" tools, they deserve the fate that infers.

That is what I see as the inevitable as this marches on. When DJT said this can never happen to another President, I believe him to get even, to the fullest extent of his legal powers. He doesn't do half measures, as we have seen.

It's a battle being fought in plain view, and lack of information being made public, does not mean inaction from the hints we do get. Raids like Burke's in Chicago may mean something of interest to most of you, and I can't blame others for looking from that perspective. But here, and the deafening silence around it, have some believing that nothing is going on at all. Silence is the dog that isn't barking, when it should be. Loose lips sink ships. The raid alone on a supposed Chicago Untouchable (he's the only Chicago politician with a larger State Police contingent than the Governor) without leaking should not happen. The discipline exercised surrounding this is totally new.

Go back to DiFi's presser with Schumie during the Kavanaugh hearings, after the SCIF intelligence viewing. She looked as if she'd seen her own death in that report. That wasn't by accident.

As we all know, we can't trust ANY MFM sourced information, without double checking through sources we ourselves have double checked, such as Clarice and VDH, both of whom have proven themselves time in and time out as honest purveyors of the truth as they see it. Expecting "evidence", from MFM that anything is going on that we already know has happened, is a fool's errand. They have Tupoleved themselves to meaningless noisemakers, and now have the ratings to attest to that claim.

You won't see a fair report of the slaughter at the forum, but you'll hear the roar from the crowd when it happens.

That's what I'm seeing, and what I see coming. It's glacial, but inevitable, because it's coming anyway.

I just saw the Cher tweet and came here to post it but someone beat me to it. This was Trump’s application of 4D Chess Theory and Sun Tzu at their finest.

To fight and conquer in all our battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.

All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.

Re.. the Clinton's and the Obama administration's culpability in the investigation of Trump.

Any indictments of high level or prominent persons will be used by the Democrats in their election campaign. They will twist the information by providing impeachment level advertising aimed at turning Independents and squishy Republicans away from Trump and conservatives.

Of course, the media will repeat the Democratic buzzwords.

Tiger and Barak are weird extremes.

Tiger was raised, coached and driven by his dad.

Barak met his dad twice and was raised by Huwight People.

Tiger became incredibly successful because of his talent and determination.

Barak is about 10% talent and charisma and 90% cut out/media creation.

Tiger went off the rails with drugs and women.

Barak has a (media) image as a perfect family man.

I haven’t heard or seen much about Tiger’s mom. One thing I do know, there aren’t any soft core porn shots of her circulating on the internet.

Gongrats to Tiger. It is always good to see him in the hunt.

Maybe I missed something but I don’t think Tiger’s shirt would be allowed at golf clubs around here. Shirt must have a collar, and crew necks don’t work? Clubhouse has shirts in various sizes that can be rented for a few bucks. Is there a more modern view of this? Agusta would seem to be pretty old school on almost everything.

Tiger paid more dearly than anyone I can think of for his mistakes. He lost his wife and his incredible career for his mistakes. Lots of people suffer a lot less. And he handled his losses with grace, although I suspect he truly regrets destroying his family. That loss was undoubtedly deserved and expected. What wasn’t expected was losing his career. And it was all in public. And when he lost, we lost.
