First.

Cuomo is waiting in the wings for the Motley Crew to deflate.

By then New York’s governor will have all his bona fides in order to save the Democratic Party.

Jack is Back!

New York is part of NEPC which includes Quebec and their expansive hydro generation. So, free ride is definitely in the cards. If so, Quebec doesn’t come under FREC and just raise their export rates to make dummy Cuomo look more of a moron than he actually is.

Buckeye

Jack, you might want to consider expediting the sale of the Southampton property.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the exodus pick up steam and drive property values down.

You are a mind reader, Buckeye. But until Wall Street moves to Kansas, I think I am fine.

Gee, take an area, fill it with rich folks, ban self defense, ban energy and private cars, then during the next blackout the invading barbarians will have a great time. Way to go Cuomo.

henry,

Did they give blackbeard a book contract

James D.

Weissmann should have been fired, disbarred and probably prosecuted himself for his past actions.

He certainly should be charged for his corrupt actions during the Mueller witch hunt.

It is SO far past time for these criminals to be punished. But instead they not only roam free, they collect seven-figure book deal bribes, to go along with their lifetime, gold-plated, taxpayer-funded pensions.

I want blood in the goddamn streets at this point.

The other day henry posted about smart TVs and concerns about the IOT (Internet of Things). But who knew there were smart light bulbs? I didn't, but this from GE (video at link) is unintentionally hilarious:

I think Weissmann should be prosecuted. For what? I'm not sure. But he should be.

Gee, I sound like a liberal.

James D.

Well, Jane, the Democrat Party, the DoJ under the reign of Obama and his holdover moles, and the MSM, all have told us that it's just peachy keen to start a prosecution without any actual crime, or evidence, or anything like that, if you really, really, really don't like somebody.

Their rules. Time to use them against the progs.

I can't find the article now, but just read a great piece on this New York virtue signalling energy crap. They are closing the nuclear plant in Buchanan, New York that provides half of New York City's electricity and replacing it with two gas-fired plants further upstate which will generate more carbon. It's all virtue-signaling, no substance, all the time. The only thing that the ne law actually mandates is a committee of twenty two officials to rule on who gets to use what resources. Something tells me Bane will still have his SUV, and Chuck and Andy will still use their helicopters, while the rest of us have rolling brownouts.

That's the goal. That's always the goal. They see themselves as feudal lords living it up, looking down at us serfs who shiver in the dark and kiss their feet when they deign to throw us a few scraps now and then.

Good afternoon! Ha,Howie Carr opened his show with the "M.T.A." song by the Kingston Trio,because the red line will be closed all summer after the recent derailment. He also talked to former Gov. LePage,who is very upset about the situation in Portland. He said the immigrant influx is draining money and resources from the needy elderly,children and homeless vets. LePage said,who could imagine that homeless people would be sleeping in front of Longfellow's house?

NRA Suspends Chris Cox, Alleges He Took Part In ‘Coup’ Attempt. He Says Claims Against Him Are ‘Patently False’

The National Rifle Association suspended chief lobbyist Chris Cox, alleging he participated in a coup attempt against CEO Wayne LaPierre, according to court documents.

The gun-rights behemoth said Cox’s text messages and emails with a board member show an apparent attempt to oust CEO Wayne LaPierre, reported The New York Times on Thursday, noting the full context was unclear.

The allegations were disclosed in the latest chapter of the NRA’s ongoing management saga: a lawsuit the gun group filed against former president Oliver North in response to his alleged attempts to collect legal fees related to his litigation as well as a Senate Finance Committee probe.

They should put it up for a membership vote. I'd vote to oust LaPierre, too.

Happy Summer! The first day of summer here has been cool and rainy,so hubby burned brush. I'm running out of closets and cupboards to clean on these rainy days! It is going to be a short summer!

Environmentalism is the state pseudo religion, we know this. The Orthodoxy of the past forty years has been depopulation. With the success of that gospel now there’s a new revelation: we don’t have enough people.

Really? No, not really. We don’t have enough of the right people. Who are the right people? Anyone who rejects Logos.

We can work with those people.

Interesting info on foreigners traveling in Mexico:

Another good reason to obtain your FMM...

Starting yesterday, all long haul passenger bus lines in Mexico will be required to see proof of ID for all bus passengers traveling within Mexico. Foreigners will be asked to provide proof of legal status provided by INM...

In order to ride a bus there, you now have to prove you are there legally.

Iggy "The only zero these dumbasses will net is wealth."

Bell Curve.

For every million or so serfs who will net zero wealth (if they are that lucky since the range extends below zero), there will be an Al Gore, Elon Musk, Clinton, or Obama who will scoop up all the change under the tables and get very, very rich imposing that crap on the rest of us.

https://dailycaller.com/2019/06/20/trump-approval-usa-today/

President Donald Trump has scored his highest approval rating ever in a key national poll, but the media outlet that produces it, USA Today, never mentioned that fact in its write-up.

Old Lurker

That was a good read, Clarice.

What the writer fails to grasp, in warning of overturning almost a century of allowing agencies to run wild with broad stroke laws, is that until Trump, those agencies were allowed to be "run" by an elected POTUS who got to act as CEO of ALL agencies without question.

Denying Trump his executive authorities by injunction or "resistance" makes the "government" answerable to no effective control by any elected official.

Looked at that way, he is damn right that "the entire government" is unconstitutional.

Bring it!

Not such a surprise that it was in the NYT, since the point was to raise the left’s blood pressure over the prospects of a conservative majority in the court.

NBC Hails Teens ‘Rewriting Rules of Gender,’ ‘Educating’ Parents

“This morning, we’re kicking off a special series called Pride 50 with an eye-opening look at gender fluidity....How the teens of Gen Z are changing the rules and educating their parents,” co-host Savannah Guthrie proclaimed at the top of the 8:00 a.m. ET hour as she teased the upcoming story celebrating the left-wing social agenda.

Yay!

Extraneus
Snow praised the alleged the wisdom of the younger generation:

It used to be gender was pretty straightforward. There was just he and she. But today, gender lines are blurring with the teens of Gen Z embracing gender fluidity. A recent survey found more than half of teens now shop outside their given gender [whatever that means] and know someone who goes by gender-neutral pronoun like “they” or “them.” And more than a third of Gen Z believes gender doesn’t define a person as much as it used to.

“And it’s impacting nearly every part of our culture,” the reporter gushed as she highlighted: “Mainstream clothing brands like H&M and Zara have introduced gender-neutral clothing lines....Popular TV shows like Orange is the New Black and Billions feature gender-fluid characters and ten states and Washington, D.C. now offer a gender-neutral ‘X’ option on their driver’s licenses.”

So great to have something new to celebrate.

The Infamous Ignatz

I meant the economy of the state of New York would net zero wealth, OL.

The Infamous Ignatz

I'm getting confused.
I thought we had to believe sexual orientation was a dyed in the wool genetic certainty.
But if gender is fluid doesnt that mean who they're attracted to must be fluid also or the first assertion seems false.

I propose a more common sense assertion. There are lots of weirdos and perverts in the world and it was a better world when they lived in closets.

I probably told this story before Mr Iggy but it bears repeating. We had a notorious transvestite in my county when I was growing up. I always heard about Larry sitings at Safeway or the bank but I never ran into him.

He worked at the nearby power plant. I had a route sales gig for a while and I delivered to said plant.

One day I’m walking through the men’s locker room delivering overalls and I notice something. There’s a long shelf where the fellas set their hard hats. In a sea of white hard hats there’s one pink one.

I guess Larry suffered from the delusion that many people have about the colors blue and pink.

Extraneus

I'm a big fan of the color pink. Just got a pink fly swatter yesterday in fact.
