Democrats see that their only option is to double-down on physical violence,

It's only a matter of time before they will really regret that.

The first doctor would have put me on the oral fungicide. The one that takes out your liver and kidneys so you can have clean feet.

jim nj---
Besides what you wrote, those fungicides don't work that well. Extremely high risk for a basically cosmetic effect that you may or may not achieve.
I'd consider seeing somebody else next time, unless the script was passed on with "You can give this a try if it bothers you, but you could lose your liver."

Before I arrived in France, the Fake and Disgusting News was saying that relations with the 6 others countries in the G-7 are very tense, and that the two days of meetings will be a disaster. Just like they are trying to force a Recession, they are trying to “will” America into..

....bad Economic times, the worse the better, anything to make my Election more difficult to win. Well, we are having very good meetings, the Leaders are getting along very well, and our Country, economically, is doing great - the talk of the world!

Seems that UDF-IV indeed does have problems, and, as I have mentioned, an investment manager does have to get in front of his trades and defend them from time to time, although this one was a bit dodgy on how he went at it and it got him sued, for good reason:

Excellent, Clarice. Read it and wonder about the future of political parties.

The problem seems a manifestation of technological breakdown. Signal gets overwhelmed as new media feedback loops have no dampening circuits to mitigate noise.

A schooled brain does not provide dampening that an educated brain can provide.

Good morning
JOM has spoiled me. I’m sitting here on this fine Sunday morning on my lounge chair sipping a hot coffee eating berry granola and reading Clarices Pieces! What’s become of the Democratic Party? What’s the cure for what ails these sick SOBs? Seriously! They are nuts. The candidates for POTUS are scary people. Imagine any one of them with power over that suitcase? So what’s the remedy? Talk loudly, carry a big stick & use plenty of bleach.
Have a good one.

Disagree with comment at bottom of last post to some degree. I liked today’s Pieces and thought it is a classic. I appreciate that Clarice reads a LOT of articles that I simply do not have time to do. She gives the meat so we don’t have to search and read for hours. Good! But today we got some of that but a lot more of Clarice’s thoughts than usual. Really good too.! Thanks Clarice. Keep up the good work!

That party was two years after Epstein’s first conviction for pedophilia.

Everyone who goes on Stephanopolous’ show should ask him why he - a man with young daughters - went to parties celebrating a convicted pedophile.

SBW, Signal gets overwhelmed as new media feedback loops have no dampening circuits to mitigate noise.

Heh. About four decades ago at Ginormous Research, we used to debate dampening vs damping. The damping group argued that dampening was what you did with a washcloth. :)

It’s all deliberate. It’s the end result of all the things rse writes about. Bill Ayers won, in the end.

MissMarple3

James D.,

Of course they won't ask. I thought it important to show how those people sucked up to Epstein AFTER his conviction. One would have thought he would have been persona non grata.

Again: where'd he get all of that money? And who all knew what he was up to?

James "It’s all deliberate. It’s the end result of all the things rse writes about. Bill Ayers won, in the end."

Agree except some say we are not yet at the end so one cannot be 100% certain.

But if James is correct, then the bookend to Ayers will be Obama who, having been created by whomever created Ayers, with his eight years of destruction, will have set in final motion the "transformation of this country". Hillary was supposed to carry the baton over the finish line, but Trump forced the race into another lap. Who knows...

So, if RBG [or any other justice] leaves the court for whatever reason what is the GOP counter to the Dem's inevitable 'leave it until after 2020 just like Merrick Garland' argument?
I'm not sure the different-parties-in-the-WH-and-Senate argument will get through the chatter nor am I convinced it makes a whole lot of sense.

Our side ought to be advancing the argument t that RBG is clearly medically unfit to continue serving.
