Reagan faced a similar problem, he built up the molitary but used it sparingly in the gulf of sidra, in grenada, ultimately over tripoli. And with ill result in beirut.

I loved the ODELL BECKHAM JR story, vis a vis the nearly or possibly more than $200,000. watch, that Beckham wore during the game this weekend.
I have zero objections to Mr Beckham Jr. spending his money anyway he see's fit.
It's how he see's fit that exhibits his character, and possibly his judgement.
Oh well.

Tx for the kind words, prayers and encouragement on the coming heart surgery (Sept 19th 530a PST).

the minimally invasive mitral valve replacement surgery will be conducted Dr. Junaid Khan, one of the pioneering innovators on the replacement technique.

there has been a significant blessing in all of this pre-op testing. my heart and vascular system are in great condition---- no weakness in the heart---- no narrowing or clogging of the arteries or veins. the scopes and video captures, scans, mri's have assured the surgical team there won't be any complicating "bypasses" that would warrant a sternotomy procedure (open heart).

Dr. Khan is something of a rock star in California medicine. He recently removed a large blister in the lungs of a teen aged vaping victim. Dr. Khan is certain he'll be performing more of these in the near future.

i feel great now that the menacing strep bacteria has been purged from my system and the valve is no longer slinging it into vulnerable bone tissue. i am low energy still but that's the valve leakage.

i've been on superfoods for 13 days now. by the time the surgery comes around i should have supercharged my immune system. the same regimen will supplant hospital food during recuperation and recovery.

Kelly has been directing my daily yoga practice. we have an entire program of breathwork set up for my hospital stay and beyond. the idea is to keep the blood clean and oxygenated for faster healing and infection fighting.

as many of you know i had bone surgery in late june to rid the clavicle of strep infection. there are six doctors involved in the post-op which moved me from the infection surgery to the pre-op valve surgery. not cheap counting the $150,000 surgery and week long hospital stay.

all tolled this health detour has generated $215,000 in billables. i've been billed a total of $814.oo for ALL of it. Medicare and United Health Care are doing a bang up job.

Mrs Kid and i are experiencing something profound in all of this "bad news." It feels like a re-birth so far. From what we're hearing from former patients who were in my age bracket when they had their valve(s) fixed---- it will feel like a rebirth.

it's all good, Baby. and the Raiders drubbed the Donkies last night. Antonio Brown is a child grown old and will die broke like so many of these prima donnas. Bellichik will get a year of great football like he did with Randy Moss....big whup. i think that was the plan all along when AB found out he was traded to the Raiders.

the best thing about AB being released is that it freed up roster space for Keelan Doss, a local prospect (Alameda) slot receiver who can do it all.

better times ahead for the Raiders. i'll look forward to watching game 3 in my hospital room. :)

best wishes to all and may the political foolishness fail to raise your blood pressure. :)

I agree with what GUS said about Bolton upthread. Bolton's a good guy, and reasonable people can disagree on important issues. I'm sure he agreed with Trump on walking away from the Iran deal. I doubt he'll undermine the President even if the media does their best to urge him on.

GUS

Jimmy K, THANK YOU, for your kind words vis a vis ME. If Bolton and Trump did noIt get along as to how tough to be and the strategy of taking down the TALIBAN, or AFGHANISTAN I respect both, and I respect their differences. Either way, the LEFTARD FULL COMMIES, were and are weaker. There is nothing within the OBAMA cabal, that intended to eradicate our enemies. I sort of kind of, like the BOLTON/TRUMP disagreements. Both Bolton and TRUMP have sought solutions that OBAMA and his PUSSY CABAL were not willing to GO AFTER.

How wonderful to wake up to Dan Bishop's victory, because that is not what I went to bed thinking the outcome would be.
I am happy for my candidate, but I am even happier IRT to 2020, because Dan didn't just align with Trump--he had both arms around him the whole campaign, from the word go. No "I wish he wouldn't Tweet" or civility crap for Dan in any interview I heard, though he was given ample opportunity.

No question that Dan Bishop fully, totally, completely supported POTUS/MAGA.

McCready has signs all over my neighborhood, the county---and got six million dollars in campaign funding from Leftists across the nation.

This IS big folks, and IS a statement on Trump. The silent majority lives, and has voted.

God bless the deplorables in Union County, because the morons in mine have gone full tilt SJW.

Thomas Collins

If that text is legitimate, Dave (in MA), it seems as if Mr. Brown is not bragging about a rape, but complaining about the behavior of his honey (who probably had good reason to be disillusioned with AB). My immediate take:

-AB probably acted like a jerk, and I can well believe that part of his jerk activities involves an "off" after the word.

-Ms. Taylor, whether or not her forcible rape allegation is true, suffered through some sort of "jerky" activities with her beloved AB.

-At this point, with what we know so far, which isn't much, there is no more reason to believe that AB is guilty of forcible rape than there is to believe that Ms. Taylor may be looking to turn her AB jerk experience into hard (so to speak) currency.

-Because this was apparently discussed in social media over the weekend, one would be justified in concluding that the actual head of football operations (whatever his official title in addition to head coach is) of a team that has made 9 Super Bowl in his 19 years as such head needs to shore up his due diligence operation for vetting potential talent.

-The educational system is worse than I thought. The dumbest rock I grew up with could write better than AB (although perhaps I would be accused of simply being culturally insensitive to a Shakespearean text done in a version of English with which I am unfamiliar).

-Pats will beat Miami this weekend. The AFC Championship Game will once again wind up just off Route 1 in Foxboro, MA, AB or no AB.

That's my suspicion, Another Bob. I suspect Ms. Taylor wanted a nice settlement agreement, and her lawyer was looking forward to a nice piece of the proceeds of that settlement. AB's lawyer at AB's direction said no, and the new strategy is to convince AB that paying to make this go away, rather than to undergo the pre-trial process, is the best move.

鈥渉ow negative interest rates work鈥

Exactly what you鈥檇 think. You essentially pay the government to hold your money. You have to pay more for the bond than you鈥檇 get at maturity.

I'll be burying money in mayonnaise jars in the backyard before I pay anybody to hold it.

(I Hope!) (never say never, I have learned)

MissMarple2

So, if you have to pay someone to hold your money, then why not use it to buy something that might appreciate: gold, real estate, cattle futures, etc.

Why would you pay someone to hold it?

Old Lurker

But seriously A-Bob. The non-trivial aspect of negative long term govt interest rates is that traditionally ALL other assets are priced from that rate upwards, depending on the perceived risk of each asset. So when long government bonds were worth say 5%, then fully leased to high credit tenants trophy office buildings might have been priced to yield, say, 7%, and riskier buildings say, 9%, and so on along the curve.

So my self interested question is, if govt yields are negative, and my assets spreads v treasuries are X%, then when the like term treasury reaches -X%, are my properties worth infinite amounts?
