This is a couple of guys from India. I am thinking that the dems weren't paying attention, so the feds got the evidence while no one was looking.

Sanders sounds good on Medicare.
Warren sounds weak.
Klobuchar goes after Warren.
Public option.

Warren sounds unsure and shaky.

Since there is now no sports of much consequence on tonight

DC might clinch going to the World Series.

James,

The one thing I recall about the 1st World Series the Red Sox won (in a semi-modern era) was the mourning everyone had for their fathers and grandfathers not getting to see it: my guess is that was the ‘80’s.

Sanders back in true form.

Frustrating season for the Yankees as they exceeded expectations in the regular season but are playing below their abilities in the post-season. Most Yankee fans are thankful we are going to have a deluge tomorrow so the team gets a day off and gets to regroup.

While you're at it, stick a fork in the Cards.

To be honest, I was hoping for an all flyover WS, Cards vs 'Stros. Ain't gonna happen.

James D, I'd still give the Yanks a 50% chance or better of winning this series. They'll likely win games 4 and 5, and then the Astros will have Verlander and Cole for 6 and 7 but will have to win both.

jimmyk

From what I've read, none of the Dems seem to know or care that a wealth tax would be unconstitutional. Not that Dems ever care about what the Constitution actually says.

Captain Hate

Didn't you grow up an Orioles fan??

Kind of. Laurel is halfway between Balmer and DC so I had a choice. Mother Hate, a truly terrible sports fan, cheered for the Orioles probably because they had a better chance of beating the hated Yankees. Father Hate cheered for the Senators so I didn't know what to do. Finally a bunch of drunk Baltimorons burned an effigy of Johnny Unitas in a bar parking lot after a loss, so I decided to switch my allegiances from Baltimore to DC (honestly some of the Colts fans around town seemed mentally ill with their weird paranoia plus they always got their facts wrong; they made the guys in Diner with giving a fiancé a Colts exam seem normal). Mother Hate felt so betrayed she accused us both of being closet Yankee fans.

Then the hated Calvin *spit* Griffith tore the hearts out of Senators fans by moving them, when they finally got good, to Minnesota where my hatred has and will not subside one iota against those thieving bastards with God as my witness. MLB realized they'd screwed the pooch with that carpetbagger and quickly gave DC an expansion team which was, of course, terrible. Meanwhile the Os got Frank Robinson from the Reds and just instantly became a power cthat was so awesome that Father Hate and I started following them. They were like a machine how they'd pounce on a team immediately and rely on their lights out pitching to just steamroll everyone. When they played the Dodgers in the Series all the experts predicted the Dodgers in a rout and I can remember as a kid thinking those clowns don't know shit. And I was right in a sweep.

So that was fun and everyone was happy but then decided to wallow in misery with the Senators even though Ted Williams was bringing the team along. Then Bob Short made the Denny McClain trade and the guts were tore out again. When Short moved the team to Texas it didn't hurt having the knife stuck in over scar tissue.

The Os were still good but not as magical as that one season, particularly when they lost to the Mets. But they got Earl Weaver and I don't think I've enjoyed cheering for a manager more, although Terry Francona comes close. When I moved to Cleveland, all of my fellow Tribe fanatics cheered for the Os because of Earl and their awesome pitching staff. Once Earl retired the Magic was pretty much over.

Did that answer your question?

Narciso

Yes they are deeply incoherent, i think norma desmond admitting the bluff, unhinged them a little more.

DrJ

i had a new employee start today. Wonderful man. We'll see how it goes, but anyone who is restoring a Cosworth Vega is OK with me.

jimmyk

And Jr tweets that Dems are claiming that the unemployment rate is only low because so many people are working 2 or 3 jobs. Aside from being false (5% work multiple jobs), it's a non sequitur. They evidently don't understand what the unemployment rate is.

D

Beto says yes he would freeze Putin’s accounts and reveal his corruption.
Putin as a firmer KGB guy will squash him like a bug if he doesn’t poison him first.

Captain Hate

I still say property taxes paid on a valuation of my house over what I paid for it is a wealth tax.

jimmyk

I still say property taxes paid on a valuation of my house over what I paid for it is a wealth tax.

Maybe, but that's a local government tax, so probably not unconstitutional.

WATCH: Elizabeth Warren has dodged the question "will your Medicare for All plan raise taxes on the middle class?" AT LEAST 1⃣7⃣ times!

I totally agree CH.
Our taxes are high and they over estimate the value of everyone’s home.

Arrived short time ago on Oahu which is beautiful. I'm beat--long trip and airports and airlines are awful. Glad to see you all behaved.

The graphic for the numbers didn't copy over so that it could be read.

Warren has dodged that question on her Medicare for All plan causing a raise in taxes at least 17 times.

Have a wonderful time Clarice.
Enjoy your son, daughter in law and your lovely granddaughter.

Manuel Transmission

Thx, Peter. I think I learned a lot more inguneering rebuilding old junk in my early teens and then building race cars in my late teens, than the bulk of the classroom sessions (with key exceptions). Somewhat in parallel, one of my best buds in kollege who chased the EE side was very gifted on the hands on side and figured if you couldn’t tear down a car radio and rebuild it, you weren’t really a EE. (He went on to do great stuff at Motorola.)

DrJ

Clarice,

Oahu is great. The other islands have their charms, but Oahu is special.

Enjoy.

Wonderful clarice

Buckeye

Well, that was a hell of a story CH.

Since I grew up in the wasteland of NW Ahia, I had no "local" heroes.

My dad, being from the Motor City area was a Tigers/Lions fan, so if he could get the antenna pointed correctly, they were on the tube.

I didn't really develop an interest in any pro sports until college.

As you can imagine, half the guys in my freshman dorm were Browns fans and the other half were Bengals fans.

Things got rowdy when they played each other. Witnessed a few of those from the Dawg Pound. A buddy from Parma had a good connection for tickets.

BTW, Vet called late afternoon. Poogan came through just fine. Likely pick him up tomorrow.

MissMarple2

Buckeye,

Great news on Poogan!

The Infamous Ignatz

--but anyone who is restoring a Cosworth Vega is OK with me--

Hah! Love those cars. Everybody hates Vegas but they were really attractive and the Cosworth was a pretty cool little engine. Of course the typical Vega is more oxide than iron but if you get over that hump and the many others you can end up with a neat little car.

James D.

Looks like the Cardinals are trying to show some life. But hopefully the Nats don’t let them back in the game.

Captain Hate

Our taxes are high and they over estimate the value of everyone’s home.

And the make the appeal process as difficult as possible. Paying for schools through property taxes is an 18th century concept when only male property owners voted and has been declared unconstitutional in many states (including Ohio) yet the Uniparty cowards are too gutless to vote for an alternative method of financing.

Best wishes for Poogan!

Narciso

Great news on poogan.

DrJ

Iggy,

It seems the Vega has been cared for well, though the engine currently is in Los Angeles. We'll get it worked out.

I'd love to have a ride in one that works well.

Meanwhile, the Chopin Waltzes are playing. Rubinstein. Soul, but no technique.

The Infamous Ignatz

Forgot until the last minute that today is the deadline if you got a tax extension.
Wanna turn this nation into a libertarian stronghold in which the Feds take precisely that amount of GDP that it takes to fund the DoD and no more?
Outlaw tax preparers and Turbo tax.
No person can actually read that bullshit and jump through their bullshit hoops and not come out loathing the government. Noam Chomsky would be wearing a frickin MAGA hat if he had to do his own taxes.
Outlaw the withholding tax and we'll be a nation of anarchists too.
Also noticed the Barrycarepenaltytax seems to be back. If you didn't have health insurance all year they ding you for some shared payment or something or other.

"Purportedly" true, but also true.

Warren just turned off a lot of voters with her snarky comment that she could beat Trump ,Pence or whoever the republicans are stuck with.

jimmyk

“And the make the appeal process as difficult as possible.“

In NYC it’s a joke, just guaranteed full employment for lawyers. The city makes a high assessment, then it’s appealed, and the lawyers get it reduced, but get a percentage of the reduction. No way that could be abused, right?

This is from the opening of the debate. Video at the link.

There is not a genuine bone in her body, except maybe for Willie's. She is corrupt, stupid, arrogant, calculating, ambitious and astonishingly unpleasant.
