My mom tells me The Five is in Nashville. Broadcasting from The Redneck Party Bus? Need a little more specifficity.

I was under a huge misapprehension regarding the pedal taverns. I thought they peddled around drinking on the conveyance itself but they actually use it to go from bar to bar.

David Brooks: America Wants a 'Reset,' 'Moral Cleansing' From Trump in 2020

"Just think about the interview we saw with Rachel Maddow and Pete Buttigieg. There's a guy with fundamental decency. I met him months ago before I knew he was running for president, was seated next to him at a dinner, and there was just a basic humility and deference and you look at Donald Trump and you look at a man who is about ego, who worships career success, financial success. A man who in some ways was not loved and is incapable of receiving or giving love."

...

"So I think we should be prepared for how much the country is going to want to take a reset after the Trump presidency or even when they make the decision about 2020. They are going to want not only policy changes a lot of people, but a moral cleansing. To me, Trump grows out of a moral and spiritual crisis in the country and the answer is a moral and spiritual response."

David Brooks and Jen Rubin are the biggest frauds of true American Exceptionalism conservatism around. The fact they are the so-called conservative voices for the New York Times and Washington Post should speak volumes to their credentials. Two frauds in creased suede.

Beagles are pack and scent hounds. Sooner or later they will come back because of hunger. Been here before with them. Luckily we are a gated community with roving security to look for them. My only concern is that they get on the beach and could go forever.

Lets pray hunger plays a part.

I am curious about that Bill, MM. There is a rotten treaty between the US and Mexico where we cannot cut the flow of the river too dramatically during droughts. Mexico is guaranteed a certain amount of water from it. Presumably enough for their avocados, while US avocados drop dead.

The treaty was modified under Bush, IIRC, to put some restrictions on Mexico when water was scarce. It didn't go far enough IMO.

I look forward to reading this Bill.

I second Ext.
I like having Melinda here.
Good comments and valuable insights.

Thanks, guys.

Good news!

Seattle Mayor Welcomes All the New Illegal Aliens Surging Across the US Border

While most of the “sanctuary city” mayors are pushing back against Trump’s proposal to ship all of the illegals into their cities, Seattle’s mayor, Jenny Durkan, openly welcomes and invites Trump to do just that.

Here’s a message to President Trump: Seattle is not afraid of immigrants and refugees. In fact, we have always welcomed people who have faced tremendous hardships around the world. Immigrants and refugees are part of Seattle’s heritage, and they will continue to make us the city of the future.

What does scare us? A president and federal government that would seek to weaponize a law enforcement agency to punish perceived political enemies. A would-be despot who thinks the rule of law does not apply to him.

It’s clear he hates the fact that the very cities he scorns are engines of innovation, opportunity and economic power. But we will not be deterred. The president’s threats won’t intimidate me as a mayor of a city with an open door, as a former federal prosecutor or as the granddaughter of a teenager who fled a war-torn, starving and impoverished country only to be welcomed in America.

In Seattle, we have started to provide tuition-free college for our public high school graduates, regardless of a young person’s immigration status. We’re expanding internship and apprenticeship opportunities to connect all our young people with the jobs and opportunities of the future. We’re working to help tens of thousands of legal permanent residents become U.S. citizens as part of the New Citizen Campaign and our other citizenship programs. Our Ready to Work program connects people with case managers and English language education to help our immigrant and refugee neighbors gain the skills necessary to enter our booming jobs market.

So if this president wants to send immigrants and refugees to Seattle and other welcoming cities, let me be clear: We will do what we have always done, and we will be stronger for it. And it will only strengthen our commitment to fighting for the dignity of every person. We will not allow any administration to use the power of America to destroy the promise of America.

Clarice, the best in the world, But when they get hungry they return, at least this time I hope. I know where they are but can catch them. But when I do it is curtains out for them except for water. They can beg for food. They need to know the consequences.

lyle

So are they still at large?

Jack is Back!

They are at large but in the area. The security Rover has his eyes out for them. Usually, the big guy would be back now for food. Tells me they may have escaped down the beach toward Hammock Beach. Nothing good came come from that.

We pray they make their way home soon just for food.

She thinks he is evil because she heard him bragging about being a disciple of Ayn Rand. She and I both do NOT like snobs who look down their noses at blue collar workers.

She told me tonight that she is supporting Warren. I can live with that because I know she won't get elected. She likes some of Warren's ideas. She was REALLY PO'd when I let her know about those super delegates in the 2016 dem convention.

Bernie Sanders and wife should pay the Pre-Trump Taxes on their almost $600,000 in income. He is always complaining about these big TAX CUTS, except when it benefits him. They made a fortune off of Trump, but so did everyone else - and that’s a good thing, not a bad thing!

Parent Alert Update:

So the potential Son-In-Law wanted to ask me a 'question' this weekend while they were in ton.

Here it is:

The boy is drowning in student loan debt. He'll have been graduated for two years next month and is still well over a $100K and he feels he's not making any headway in reducing it. He doesn't see how he can get on to that next stage in life until he has.

At the current rate he'll be in his mid to late 30's before it's paid off. He worries it'll pose a risk to his relationship with My Girl if he doesn't do something to change his trajectory.

I told him his fears are well grounded and talking about it was his first step to doing something about it.

His parents are good people who've never successfully managed their own finances. They won't discuss it with him 'cause they cosigned and it's up to him to figure it out. They are hamstrung by the debt too so he wants them out.

He wanted a sounding board.

He's got a frat buddy who graduated about 3 years prior to him who is pretty successful in some financial services gig and has come up with three plans for him to get it under control.

All three plans call for him to pay down $10K on his overall balance so he can refinance the three loans he has into one, save money on the monthly payment and pour that into the principal he still has. The crux is when each plan gets that $10k paid off and refinancing can occur.

We went thru the numbers. I told him we'd call the plans Painful, Hurts and Excruciating. He's inclined to Painful. I told him to take the Excruciating. I also told him NOT to borrow money from any person or institution to get that $10k as he'll just be adding debt to what he already owes.

They are currently living the Young 20 Something's dream in WrigleyVille Chicago.

I told him they need to move to the 'burbs when their lease runs out in the fall, eat out less and forgo vacations for the next 3 years. I told him he can look at switching jobs OR quit being impatient in his current job and just bust his azz at it. He's doing pretty well at his job but has only been there 18 months.

I'm old school and that's what I've done but kids these days don't blink an eye at changing jobs. Gig Economy or something like that. I mentioned delivering pizzas on the weekend too.

He is the personification of what the current student loan mess has created: kids who are allowed to borrow huge sums of money when they are kids and are burdened with crushing debt after they graduate. He's a 24 year old serf right now.

He's a good kid though with a lot of potential.

I know based upon the conversation I don't need to worry about ponying up for a wedding anytime soon.

MissMarple2

Dave (in MA),

I don't go there. Warren has no chance and if she gets steamrollered by Kamela Harris or whoever, I will encourage a protest 3rd party vote.

Another Bob

Hmm, Bub. Must have been a surprise?

What’s the buyout on that lease? I’d get out sooner than the fall.

I’m afraid to ask what his degree is and what he’s doing.

MissMarple2

bubarooni,

Guess what I discovered tonight. My daughter's divorce settlement from her first husband included $25,000 to pay HIS share of her student loan debt (because he and his sister talked her into borrowing living expenses so he could paint without holding down a job, as well as tuition for a Masters in library science, which does NOT pay that well).

He has not been paying her, which is why she was overdrawn and needed money from me today. She asked me what to do. Since MY ex declared bankruptcy, I told her to tread cautiously and ask him if he could pony up a little bit each month. I told her the last choice would be to file with the court but getting a lawyer without money would be tricky, and she might have to go to legal aid.

Student loans are the pits!

Jane

Bubarooni.

I was in my 40’s when I finished paying off my student loans - much lower amount - about 50k for lawschool - which I finished at age 35. Proudest day of my life. Last payment was $25k after I won a big case.

If he can do it in his 20’s he is far ahead of the game. And frankly there is nothing wrong with being in that situation. It makes you smarter and stronger. I like him!

Jane

Oh and for clarification , the proudest day was paying off the loans, not law school.

MissMarple2

Jane,

That is great! I am sure you were proud of doing that; I sure would have been!

My daughter is in a far different situation, as you can tell.

Another Bob

Jane, IMO there can be plenty wrong with going into that debt. Depends on the situation.

James D.

He is the personification of what the current student loan mess has created: kids who are allowed to borrow huge sums of money when they are kids and are burdened with crushing debt after they graduate. He's a 24 year old serf right now.

This current system was purposely designed to do this. What other explanation is there?

Indebted serfs are easier to control and far more likely to respond to prog lies than people who are debt free.

I know all the arguments about moral hazard, and how unfair it would be, but I still say the best course is for the President to push for full forgiveness of all fed loans, coupled with ending those programs forever. Free the serfs, make them grateful to the GOP (and specifically Trump) and shut off the money spigot that funds so much leftist propaganda and indoctrination, all in one fell swoop. I think it’s worth some unfairness to accomplish all that.

James D.

Holy crap. #1 team in the NHL, 10 games better than anybody else, tied the all time record for wins...swept in the first round!
