matt - deplore me if you must

first!

Jane

Just read that Kerry is considering getting in!

matt - deplore me if you must

I just don't think Mr. Bean and Beto are up to the task.

Extraneus

I can't wait until they start savaging each other.

Jane

I am a little concerned about Mayor Pete. He's smart and charismatic, and like Obama I think he is hiding his true intent.

And why the hell aren't people talking about what a shitty mayor he is.

No one should be allowed to run for President if they haven't spent at least 20 years in the private sector! (Actually no elected official should be allowed to run for president because they are all ridiculously stupid and corrupt!)

henry

What I find more interesting is whether Mayor Pete and Beto can survive each other's presence in the same lane

I don't know either. Is Mayor Pete is the correct letter of the alphabet for a guy in a sheep suit?

Captain Hate

Lurch a war hero? Jim Rhoads wouldn't be happy with that characterization.

Between Buttgieg, Booker and Swalwell the LBGTABCDEFG community is going to face a dilemma with who to support.

Beasts of England

I'll wait for Ig to declare that Buttplug will never be president.

MissMarple2

Well, Pete has spent his time LYING about Mike Pence, who was nothing but cordial to Buttigieg when Pence was governor of Indiana and treated him with respect, calling him a Pharisee and insisting that he hates gays.

Meanwhile, O'Rourke released his taxes, with a very small amount of charitable donations out of over $300,000 in income (around $1200, I think) and today said that his "public service" (by which he means being an elected official) is the same as charitable giving.

What a moro!

James D.

I am a little concerned about Mayor Pete. He's smart and charismatic, and like Obama I think he is hiding his true intent.

Not so much hiding it, his vile comments about VP Pence (among other things) make that pretty clear. But he's got the MSM to deflect and spin and defend him at every turn, so he doesn't need to worry about it. For now, anyway.

I've always read that blacks aren't enthusiastic about voting for homosexual men. Seems like a serious obstacle if true.

“Together, these groups form an interlocking network of 'dark money' pop-up groups and other fiscally sponsored projects, all afloat in a half-billion-dollar ocean of cash,” the report says. “The real puppeteer, though, is Arabella Advisors, which has managed to largely conceal its role in coordinating so much of the professional Left’s infrastructure under a mask of ‘philanthropy.’”

It’s how the California referendum banning gay marriage got passed in 2008. Black turnout in CA was massive for Obama but they also voted overwhelmingly for the gay marriage ban.

Police officers and social workers have become a regular sight in the lobby of Sedgwick Gardens, a landmark apartment building in affluent Cleveland Park where many tenants now receive rental subsidies.

The SWAT team, the overdose, the complaints of pot smoke in the air and feces in the stairwell — it would be hard to pinpoint a moment when things took a turn for the worse at Sedgwick Gardens, a stately apartment building in Northwest Washington.

Yeah, I remember that now that you mention it. That kind of puts Booker's closeting in perspective.

Voters with Mexican heritage have a similar aversion. If you've ever seen their music videos (which would make Mötley Crüe blush from the blatant misogyny) then you'll know that it ain't gonna fly.

Standard Progressive/SJW BS. I posted this to point out another example of Twitter algorithms that elevate Krassenstein Progressive propaganda to the first reply.

What can be done to combat the blatant partisnanship of Twitter and other social media giants without violating the conservative principal of opposition to Federal regulation? Effective usage of social media is the future of political campaigning so something has to be done to end the stranglehold the Progressive tech giants have on social media.

That's outside of Granby/Estes Park, and not anywhere near her native Florida.

I haven't seen their music videos, but I was using youtube to test out a sound interface yesterday and clicked on the the most popular video at the top of the page, which was an impressive collection of the hottest weather babes from Mexican TV.

Good grief, Extraneus - I need to learn the metric system!! :)

Buckeye

I finally got tired of taking showers at the marina and called the plumber this morning. I came downstairs a minute ago and asked him 'Do you think it's just one thermostat or both?' Hahaha!! I felt like such a manly-man. :)

He's replacing both.

Well, I sure hope he checked to make sure the heating elements are OK.

But then that is Hot Water Heater 101:)

Buckeye

Speaking of Iggy, where has he been lately??

lyle

I’m no eloquent Ig, but I’ll aver this anyway: mayor Buttplug will never be prez.

Captain Hate

Jane's comments about future Presidents having spent time in the private sector represent the biggest threat DJT is to the ruling class; namely that the citizens figure out that we don't need career pols running the country, which was foisted off on us regarding Saint Delano and stayed in place until 2016.

Beasts of England

He did, Buckeye - and thanks for the dual thermostats heads-up! He charged $125 to replace both. I think that's reasonable.

Gentlejim

Mayor Buttplug should have to answer one simple question. How can you be expected to run the nation when you haven’t successfully run fucking South Bend? SB is about 30 miles east of me.

Lunch is over. Back to more enthralling evidence processing/handling stuff.

Gentlejim

I think Iggy said a few days ago that some interaction here had become irritating. Possibly just taking a break/lurking.

Buckeye

He did, Buckeye - and thanks for the dual thermostats heads-up! He charged $125 to replace both. I think that's reasonable.

Very reasonable, street price for the thermostat is ~ $40/each.

Good it is fixed, more frequent showers should have positive benefits to your love life:)

Good afternoon:(

Not so far for me. Nothing on the beagles. Spent many an hour last night driving around the community. Not a sign. They have always come home when hungry and/or tired. Not this time.

Animal control is working on it. All the security gates are notified. Posted on "Next Door". All Vets notified (the dogs have chips). One thing I did was go and check the invisible fence controller and sure enough, there is a break in the line. That is how they got out with their invisible fence collars on. Must have been the landscaper who cut it. Usually is the way it happens.

Electrician coming today to try to find the break and fix it.

My little guy Bandit who came home within a few hours is devastated and is mopping around when not with me walking the beach and the bramble trying to find the other two. I am trying to remain positive but with each hour of not hearing anything, I am getting more negative. Snakes, 'gators, even road kill. But I have driven all the main roads for miles and found nothing.

So prayers please for Lady and Jazz.

I came downstairs a minute ago and asked him 'Do you think it's just one thermostat or both?' Hahaha!! I felt like such a manly-man.

Well, I have an old desktop PC that just died, and as I had a bit of time on my hands I took it apart to remove the hard drive, backed up the data I needed with a USB adapter, then pulled out the power supply (which I suspect is what died), ordered a replacement off of eBay, and plan to reassemble the whole thing. Not sure if that qualifies as manly-man or geeky-geek, though.

jimmyk

Sorry to hear that JiB, hoping for the best.

Buckeye

Just finished a bid for railroad in Sweden. Was a joint effort between the Colorado subsidiary I am consulting for and their parent in Germany.

$12 million and the technology is coming from the US. The Colorado operation is basically a startup, so this will be a big win, should they get it.

Our new house has a natural gas spigot on the patio, so I left my 20 year old propane Weber with Jr.

Just ordered a replacement on Amazon. Not only was the price better than anywhere else, but of course free delivery (Prime).

To top it off, for some reason they also included free assembly. I guess those guys in the Amazon Prime trucks can do more than drop off a package and ring the doorbell.

Such a deal:)

Buckeye

Did you get another Weber, Buckeye?

Yes I did Beasts.

They have a comprehensive 10 year warranty, so a bit more peace of mind than some no-name China junk.

It is a 3 burner version which is what the last one was, and I never had need for anything bigger.

Our new place is smaller (2100 sq ft vs 3500 sq ft) and the patio isn't real big either.

I have to have room for the table and chairs, but even more importantly, the recliners.

I have my priorities:)

There is a story in the Boston Globe about some guy in Mass who received a $2,700 82" TV that he didn't order. So, naturally, he opened up the box, took out all the parts, and installed it in his living room.

That is when the cops showed up and arrested him:) Not going to pay the Globe $1 to read the rest of the story:)

Whose analysis do you believe?

One contains a significant amount of conjecture and baseless accusations, such as:

Boente then leaked his Comey notes to the media, essentially to support Comey’s narrative about Trump

Which was only a few paragraphs after he wrote:

Somehow Acting Deputy AG Dana Boente’s personal and handwritten notes were mysteriously leaked to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.

The other details a set of facts and ends with a simple statement: "29) It appears to me that President Trump trusts Dana Boente implicitly."

I lean toward the more level-headed, fact-based, speculation-free guy.

What conceivable public interest is served by releasing the video footage to the public? Spiteful public humiliation of Kraft because he had the nerve to actually defend himself in court?

And as for the media companies suing for footage of (allegedly) an 80 year old man getting a happy ending at a massage parlor...what the eff is wrong with them?

I don’t even like Bob Kraft, but this is disgusting, and the people wanting the footage released are subhuman vermin.

So Beatoff-toe is a skinflint when it comes to charity per his tax return. Insty makes the sensible claim that not all acts of charity show up on one’s tax forms and says he tends to overtip or tip people who don’t usually get tips, like maids.

I’d bet a lot of money that Bee-toe fraud is still a skinflint.

Whew! Thank goodness you found her.

I once had a Shiba Inu named Nikita. Escaped our fenced yard on a very cold New Year's Eve due to fireworks going off, which always scared her. Didn't see her for almost 3 days. Was worried sick over her because she was almost 15, and had been on heart meds for almost 2 years. Figured we'd never see her again.

But luckily got a call that someone had found her, curled up under a bush, at a house in the subdivision next to ours.

Was very thankful to get her back.
