Not a good look from Joe Biden at all. Heather Heyer's mom, Susan Bro, is on CNN talking about how Biden didn't even contact her before making Heather -- who was murdered in Charlottesville in 2017 -- the centerpiece of his campaign-opening video.

Very nice lunch today with Melinda, Henry and Gus. Good food, great conversation. Could have talked for hours but apparently they have jobs. ;)

"As to Moochelle getting the nomination, be careful what you wish for--she is a formidable public speaker and the media has built her into quite the false idol. "

I'm with you Peter. Millions of people will think it's important to vote for a black woman.

Tom R: "Michele is less qualified to be POTUS than Barack was but if she gets into the race she wins the nomination easily IMO."

Plausible. The bar is not high.

Miss Marple,

For a few days my I/Os were screwed up but I was 100% myself inside; at first I panicked a bit but then rationalized that my eggs had really been scrambled and would take a while to heal. The woman whose creep husband pulled the plug on I could imagine being in a much worse situation but still being the same person she'd always been deep inside.

That case really bothered me.

OK. The Daily Mail posted an article that said the boy thrown from the 3rd story at the mall in Houston is awake and conscious. It doesn't show up, so I don't know if they retracted it or what.

I haven't seen anything beyond Jane's comment, but La Pierre's been there too long. No matter who the figurehead "President" is, La Pierre runs the show. I can imaging North trying to take him out.

TED CRUZ QUESTIONS IF THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY IS JUST A ‘SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’ SKIT

“If there is one principle that has been true from the dawn of our nation, it is that when our liberty is under assault, Americans rise to defend it. Right now today we see liberty under assault,” Cruz said during National Rifle Association’s (NRA) annual meeting. “We see our fundamental rights — we see our First Amendment, we see our Second Amendment, all of our fundamental rights — as Americans under assault and it’s a concerted assault.”

“We see the 2020 Democratic primary field — you do have to wonder if it’s a ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit,” he continued. “It’s a clown car and they keep getting crazier clowns one after the other.”

Speaking in front of the Amherst College Republicans.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

kk: "The California tax on gasoline is causing big problems"

It's hard to over-emphasize how much the CA Dem party has invested in abolishing cars. Consider:
1) high speed rail to nowhere ($Billions wasted)
2) enormous taxes and fees on cars, gas
3) money supposedly meant for roads spent on other programs
4) a law to ban gas-powered cars after the year 20xx (did this one pass? I forget)
5) huge subsidies and tax breaks for electric cars ... the money going to Tesla et al is big bucks but even the multi-thousand dollar rebates to people with 6-figure incomes is eye-popping from a social-justice perspective.

RE: electric cars, My wife has a Tesla and she likes it OK. It takes a minimum of 40min to charge it. The car needs to maintain the temperature of the battery in a range so it runs heat or AC for the battery compartment depending on the weather. You have, say, 240 miles of charge and you're losing 8 to 10 miles on an 80 degree day. Not the end of the world but I'm thinking it could be more problematic in the deep South (summer) or Canada (winter). Electric cars might be sensible ONLY in temperate areas like CA.
A lot of people charge while at work, and take a break to move their car away from the charging slot after an hour or two to give others a chance. To say the least, poor behaviors are commonplace and as the cars become more widespread the companies can be slow in deploying more chargers.

I love that "Romney the Pious" tag. He deserves it!

GUS

Clarice! I love you my dear. I'm feeling well, and I am getting better by the day. It was fantastic to see my friends Melinda and John. Of course, Henry is as good as it gets. All 3 were more than kind to me, and none are strangers. It was an excellent lunch meet up. John is a joy, and he is somewhat UNEMPLOYED!!! Melinda and Henry always amaze me with their intellect. It's like they can finish each other's sentences. LOTS OF LAUGHS, great food. Great friends.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

The CA law to ban gas-powered cars would take effect in 2040 but it appears it did not pass.

GUS

I spoke to our Conservative morning show radio host Jay Weber today. I pointed out that the FASCIST Mayor of New York and the city council, thought banning HOT DOGS and PROCESSED MEAT, would end all the COW FARTING and GREEN HOUSE GAS.
I pointed out that T-REX and the Teradactyls FARTED TOO.

Jack is Back!

Brilliant weather here on the First Coast. Nay, a zephyr of a breeze. Warm and sunny at just about 7 pm. Had a nice prime rib tonight at the club. Saw lots of friends who are playing in our annual Challenge tournament which I have sat out this year.

So static, not even the cumulus clouds are moving. Just staying stationary.

Now my little girl, Lady, wants to go inside. Time for some hockey.

Still on The Ledge until I see some indictments, frogmarches, 0600 SWAT raids, etc. Tell me they are coming.

Ex,

It was breaking news on Fox Biz at 6;00 PM. I got no details.

" Melinda and Henry always amaze me with their intellect. It's like they can finish each other's sentences. "

Gus, when Henry and RG were at my house, I just sat back and listened.

Amazing!

The driver who plowed into a group of pedestrians in a crosswalk a mile from my house was described by his Mom as a church-going vet with PTSD problems.

This statement by the Sunnyvale mayor raises more questions than it answers ...

An Updated Statement from Mayor Larry Klein

Today we learned from new evidence that the injury incident on April 23 involving innocent pedestrians was not only intentional, but targeted toward specific race and religious groups. Our community stands unified against these senseless acts of violence motivated by hate, and we strongly condemn them.

Sunnyvale takes pride in the incredible diversity of people who form the rich fabric of our city. We embrace our community of many backgrounds and beliefs, and we will continue to define ourselves by openness and acceptance for all.

We are actively supporting the public safety investigation and will provide updates as more details become available. Our thoughts remain with the victims and their families and in the coming days we will share ways to support them.

Discussion closed 1h ago.

It is now being reported that the driver was trying to kill Muslims.

Jim, Sunnyvale -

He is going to try, but his management may not allow it. He said he would at least try to speak to her and tell her how much his mother admires her!

Very cool. I told him there might be some celebs showing up at his steak house!

ABC/WaPo Poll: Impeachment Support Sinks to New Low

Jack is Back!

CH,

Impeachment talk or moves make his election a landslide.

Captain Hate

I think you're going to get your wish, Jack. Ever since the Mueller Report came out, things have been moving much more rapidly. Plus Donny Two Scoops isn't the type of RINO that would let, say, Sandy Berger get off unpunished.

GUS

Jane, I completely understand what you're saying.
I love Henry, and today we were chatting, and I realized how long I've know him. And how many times Henry came to family get togethers for GUS and GUS jr's birffffday. He's been to ball games and other get togethers. I've been to his home several times. He is unassuming and just an overall great guy. I was really glad when I found that you and he were such good friends too.
But, Henry is VERY VERY VERY bright. I mean, he doesn't come across as an arrogant egg head, but he is clearly a SMART MAN. I've had lunches with MELINDA and HENRY, where (as difficult as it was), I was silent and humble. John is no slouch either. As I've gotten to know John, he is delightful and kind.

My grandson had never met anyone like Melinda or daddy. He was very impressed at how they thought.

I was glad to see he came to that conclusion, because he didn't run into people like that in college.

How come Melinda is allowed to post here again? Who removed the shackles?

Huh. Just like that, Zippy’s former deputy national advisor, Ben “Creative Writing Major” Rhodes sez there’s nothing more to investigate re the rooskies and/or any political involvement of Teh One’s admin. Barr should just drop the whole thing.

Gotta tell you Narc, I kinda remember it was boiling down to a Bhuddists/Hindu conflict in Ceylon.

The moment I heard of the attacks I thought 'Muzzies.'

Narciso79

Well targeting a church on Easter, was the thing that set up a flare, that it happened on a moslem holy day.

peter

Yes, Cap'n, there is a Virginia Cheer. It actually was "borrowed" Dartmouth in the 1800s, which as you know, used to call their teams the Indians before that became politically incorrect. Perky Katie is an unfortunate part of our portfolio, and we just have to suck it up and own it. She did give a huge chunk of change to the UVA medical center so there is that.

Biggest client the Chinese

The college admissions scandal ripping through America’s higher-education system allegedly found its biggest clients in China, The Wall Street Journal reports. Families from China allegedly paid far more than almost all of their domestic counterparts. One Chinese family allegedly paid $6.5 million to William “Rick” Singer, the California-based college counselor who masterminded the scheme, in order for their child to be admitted to a top-tier university. Many of the U.S.-based parents paid a mere $250,000 to $400,000 for Singer’s illegal admissions services. More and more Chinese families are bringing their children to the U.S. to attend high school with the goal of seamlessly applying to American universities. Colleges sometimes scrutinize foreign agents hired to coordinate international applications, but apply less scrutiny to U.S.-based college counselors, such as Singer.

I sent my girl to I.U. as a Good Catholic Girl.

I worked hard for 19 years to imbue her with what I considered to be commonsense and the teachings of The Church.

She came out last year thinking the Vatican is one of the Roots of Evil and that we have an inherently unfair economic system.

I will say that after being on her own for the last 11 months and seeing what happens to her paycheck, she's starting to voice the complaints that I think is bringing her back around.
