President Trump and the Repubs in the House and the Senate.

Are they on the same team? News to me.

the toughest position for a sports fan, James D--- when a good team starts losing it in the playoffs.

have to hope the Blankees will use their personnel chops to last over the long haul in years ahead.

KevlarKid

wow. LeBron got high marks in high school. when he opens his yap his lack of depth shows. shocking.

BREAKING NEWS: Vallejo firefighters are responding to a dramatic fire at the Phillips 66 refinery in the Bay Area. Whether anyone has been seriously injured is unclear.

Are you trying to make me BOO Trump?

MissMarple2

Melinda,

Been gone because my granddaughter and friend came by to pick up birthday gifts for her.

I was pleased to inform them about a cold winter coming, and why. Her friend had no idea that back in the 70's the big scare was a coming ice age. I told him to look it up on line. HA!

Then I discussed the scams from Ukraine and the Clinton Foundation (daughter was ok because she supports Warren, which doesn't bother me because as far as I am concerned she is a loser) as well as the scams from GOP people who get donations from defense companies.

I pointed out how if all of this bogus money wasn't siphoned off that taxes could be lowered. My daughter said that maybe even student loans could be paid off.

Ta-da! An opening! I agreed with her, mainly because I thought that self-interest would get her to paying attention.

We also had a discussion about how important it is to understand budgeting.

I would not be upset if confiscated ill-gotten gains from senators and representatives as well as bribes to people like Obama got diverted to paying off student loans. The younger generation (who were duped) would be able to afford homes and raise families, and they would be taught a lesson in how people in politics often try to cheat you.

MissMarple2

Dave (in MA),

Sorry. I have no hockey sympathies, since I am in a city which has no NHL team. The last time I cared about hockey was when the US hockey team won in the Lake Placid Olympics.

Jane

There is not one ounce of me that believes John Bolton is a turncoat. It was Bolton, in college at Yale who turned Justice Thomas into a conservative. Nothing could make him turn.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

So why did ABC show a KY gun range and claim it was combat footage from Syria? Insty explains it was because ABC was a conduit of Turk propaganda

“The video shared by ABC News purporting to show Turkish forces bombarding Syrian Kurds — actually footage of a night machine gun demonstration at Knob Creek Gun Range in Kentucky — was shared on Twitter by a Turkish politician days earlier.”

I won a substantial cash bet with Mel, and - being such a nice guy - took a single-comment JOM brag in lieu of payment. So here it is: winner, winner, chicken dinner!! 😎

Joe Biden
@JoeBiden

Overturning Citizens United isn’t enough. Ridding our politics of big money and corporate special interests demands more. We must go further.

I will introduce a constitutional amendment to get all private dollars out of our federal elections.
================================
So, who is going to fund campaigns? The federal government? Networks and social media companies?

How will that work for conservatives?

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

MissM: "My daughter said that maybe even student loans could be paid off."

A more conservative answer than yours would go something like: Sure but why penalize taxpayers who had no say in granting the loans? The colleges should be on the hook to repay the loan. They're the ones who eagerly took the tuition money but whose education was so substandard that the poor student couldn't find a job.
Let the college pay, and watch how fast they improve their programs!

Buckeye

Dammit Beasts, we were counting on you to buy the first round with your new found riches:)

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

"not one ounce of me that believes John Bolton is a turncoat."

Time for Amb Bolton to speak up, no?

James D.

So, who is going to fund campaigns? The federal government? Networks and social media companies?

How will that work for conservatives?

It won’t. That’s the whole point.

How much better off would this country be if Biden had been in the car with his first wife and kids when that fatal accident happened?

Jane

don't know and frankly don't care. I trust him.

BeastsEngland

Calling the wager ‘substantial’ may have been a tremendous exaggeration, Buckeye... :)

Unbelievable. The damn baseballs go dead NOW. This is ridiculous. Two freaking feet more and it’s a three run HR for Fregoriois and the Yankees have the lead.

But, no. Every break has to go the Astros’ way today, and the other day too. I hate them so freaking much now.

James D.

I will admit that while I can be a very gracious winner, I am the most terrible sore loser imaginable.

MissMarple2

Jim, Sunnyvale, CA.,

That solution is ok with me as well. In fact, actually, it's better.

Let the colleges pay back the money for the jacked-up tuition, and let some useless administrators and professors search for other employment.

James D., I laughed at the Cardinals complaining about the dead balls, but someone did some calculations based on the launch angles and did confirm that the MLB switched balls for the playoffs.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

LOL. Couldn't have anything to do with A the weather and B where the ball launched FROM off the bat.

It was raining earlier.

I think we got a hint of that when the Giants would lose week after week.
I feel your pain as I would also like to have the Yankees win.
Porch:
If House Repubs and Senators are not on board then Spence and the WH need to rally the troops to get with the program.
See, no strategy.
Senators should subpoena Both Bidens , get them under oath snd clear up the Ukraine confusion.
They can always plead the Fifth.

I gave the Cardinals no slack on the “dead ball.” The Yankees are so lame they can’t even come up with a unique excuse.

My idea is this wrt elections:
Everyone gets the same amount of money to campaign which their home state provides for them.
Rotate 4 sectional primaries from February to May.North, Douth. East Wrst
DNC and RNC fund their own convention.
Election season starts in January of the election year.
Only one week of early voting.
Voter ID required in every state.
Extra money left over goes to build homeless shelters and reduce senior prescription drug costs.

Pelosi says no vote on impeachment.

Tin Lizzy along with MacArthur genius award hopeful Ed Markey introduce bill banning export of natural gas.
These two dipshits are from a state that blocked construction of a gas pipeline to the NE resulting in that same dumbass state having to import gas from...PUTIN'S RUSSIA to make it through last winter.
The novelist or essayist has not yet lived who could do justice to the idiocy and lunacy of these times and its heroic planarian denizens.

jimmyk

Everyone gets the same amount of money to campaign which their home state provides for them.

maryrose, you're a nice lady, but that is, if I may say, a bit "out there." For starters, who is "everyone"? The fact is, fundraising is part of what determines who can run, and that's as it should be. If you can't raise money it probably means you don't have that much support.

James D.

I’m not giving up by any means but...we’ll, ive about lost my voice from yelling at the TV already.

And, God, Aaron Boone and his data driven pitcher switching crap cost them again. Sometimes the damn computer doesn’t know best!

Melinda

Ig-

Do you remember the Kennedy’s and Citgo?

Somebody’s gotta get paid for all this “idiocy”....

D

Jimmyk:
A system of polling in the individual states should determine who can run.
Have to have at least 10 percent.

D

This two year campaign season is what is out there. 20 debates?
Ridiculous.
We have 7 people at .07 still in the race.

peter

At least the Yankees won't lose tomorrow.

D

Almost everyone who leaves Trump administration comes out with negative back biting comments.
What is that about?
Bad personnel decisions.

MissMarple2

Melinda,

THAT is interesting!

Captain Hate

They should photoshop Sidney Powell and play this when she walks into court:

James D.

Aaron Boone probably deserves manager of the year but pulling Chad Green yesterday cost them the game, and pulling him today cost them two runs. He needs to throw away his iPad or binder or whatever he’s consulting because otherwise he’s going to flush the whole season down the toilet with it.

henry

Sometimes the damn computer doesn’t know best!

Stop blaspheming against St Zuck.

Very important.

Makes me wonder if Barr has a little list and will he be comparing it with Bibi’s little list from the Iran Haul, some months ago.

Release Biden’s Ukraine phone calls and transcripts.

Make that 15 minutes.

Do they give out awards for that now? Missed that memo too.

If your scheme were to come about, I would immediately start the "Silly Walk Party". I think I could get 10% in the polls. So I would hire relatives and pay them exorbitant salaries, with a 50% kickback. You see how this works MJ?

Almost everyone who leaves Trump administration comes out with negative back biting comments.

The DC crowd is used to being able to screw over the boss (serve themselves) with some kind of "plausible deniability".

Trump is not the kind of guy to sit still for getting played.

James D.

Well, it’s official. The Yankees completely screwed themselves and threw away the home field advantage. Blah.

And Houston will get tomorrow off to rest their starting pitching. I think the Astros take the series in 5, and a fantastic season goes completely to waste.

Is it any wonder I’m a ledge dweller?

jimmyk

James D, the point is that the Astros HAD to win these two games. The next two with their 3 and 4 starters could be ugly. Then they go back to Houston and have to win those last two. So I wouldn’t count out the Yanks at all. And I’m not a fan

Oh for God's sake, James. How many championships have the Yankees won during your lifetime? During that time period, whatever that is, the Indians have zero.

I understand from the paltry number of championships of teams I root for that winning doesn't slake the thirst for more, but Tribe fans are now in the longest MLB drought after losing to those damn Cubs. So a little perspective please...

James D.

CH, when I was a kid, I devoured books about the Yankee teams of the 40’s through early 60’s, when they went to the World Series every year.

It’s my birthright to see the Yankees win, darn it!

Jane,

I am not watching, even if you paid me.

Captain Hate

I've known some people who became Yankee fans out of frustration with how badly the Indians were being run in the 70s. The Tribe had their best chance in 97 except John Hart incomprehensibly left Tony Pena, Jose Mesa's best catcher, off the World Series roster and, more predictably, Jim Leland completely outmanaged Fat Fuck Hargrove. The Indians had no business, due to the talent disparity, being up 3-1 on the Cubs in 2016 and it wasn't until the rain delay before the top of the tenth inning in game 7 that I gave up hope.

Jane

Dan Hannan is fabulous, and he’s also a really nice guy.

D

Wasted first 20 minutes of debate on impeachment which most Americans don’t care about because it doesn’t affect their lives.

To specifically answer CH, in my lifetime (50 years), the Yankees have won 7 World Series and lost 4 more.

In the 50 years prior to that, they won 20 and lost 9 more.

So I’ve totally been gypped!
