"Cuomo Killed my Mom"
http://bejohngalt.com/2020/05/cuomo-killed-my-mom/

The image of the banner hung from the overpass is chilling.

"New York, New Jersey and Michigan have a lot in common these days.They are among the states with the highest confirmed COVID-19 cases and the highest rate of deaths per million residents. All three states have despotic, Democratic tyrants for governors who have badly mismanaged the pandemic. All three have instituted policies that have required nursing homes to accept seniors even if they were COVID-19 positive, resulting in thousands of unnecessary deaths"

btw
"Who says TM is not reading our comments"
is because I asked if there would be a Mother's Day thread and said "TM, it's not too late!" in the prev thread.
I don't know if this new thread arose independently or if TM saw the comment .... I would say, however, that Certain People should straighten up and fly right. You know who you are :) :)

Trey Gowdy appears purple-tied on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the ongoing DOJ/FBI revelations from document releases related to the Michael Flynn prosecution.

After numerous appearances in 2018 and 2019 proclaiming the integrity of Robert Mueller, IG Horowitz and FBI leadership, Trey Gowdy now holds a divergent perspective. Perhaps because he is now a paid Fox contributor, Ms. Bartiromo never asks Gowdy to reconcile previous assertions against current information. Additionally, Gowdy says there’s no reason to take the investigation to former President Obama because the current spotlight reaches high enough. WATCH:

Catsmeat

I've been struck over the years with how the pundits on both sides fixate on the also-rans of the presidential nominating contest and then so often the pick has nothing to do with any of the former rivals--Pence and Palin for recent examples on the R side, Biden on the D. I think there are loads of reasons to not pick someone who has run against you--first and foremost, they've called you names (like GHW's "voodoo economics" for Reagan or Kamala's blasts at Biden), but also you want a fresh face for the publicity and the freshness--your other rivals were already rejected.

Super thin, jimmyk--but that's just fine from our end. And it was thin at the start--for all those D contenders months ago, none of them seemed to me as if they could possibly beat Trump (including Biden, of course)--none were even within shouting distance. They have no bench--and this is mostly O's fault, as he depleted all the governors and state reps on his side.

You know the past week has had some real bombshells.
But I'm still having a hard time thinking anything is more important in the long run than German Intelligence, not the US or UK, but the Krauts letting us know that effing pig Xi was still asking the WHO to deny human-to-human transmission on January 21st! And to not name it a pandemic.
By then, even the WHO had to balk at the former.

How does that not indicate the infection of the rest of the world was anything but accidental?

Wait, I'm not sure that means what I wanted it to mean.

Hmmm...

The CCP infected us on purpose. There.

I find, like most, Elon Musk is a jerk and a not too stable one. I also find Tesla to be problematic as a business venture. On top of that his dependence on government assistance is aggravating.
But, I not only agree with his threats to take Tesla HQ out of CA I find myself warming up to a guy who now has all sorts of enemies on the left because he wants to make cars rather than be put out of business because of this stupid-ass shutdown.

“I also find Tesla to be problematic”

+1

It’s product is marginal, it’s business practices are highly questionable, and it still loses money on every sale. It’s losing EV share in Europe, which will eventually be reflected here.

It’s been “successful” only because Musk has convinced enough people that owning Tesla is a status symbol and a massive virtue signal.

ABob: "It’s been “successful” only because Musk has convinced enough people that owning Tesla is a status symbol and a massive virtue signal."

Also, gov't subsidies! 4 and even low 5 digit rebates on an expensive car.
Mrs NorCal got her's just on the cusp of a program that offered free SuperCharge for life. We have a SuperCharge station, like, 3 blocks away.
On the other hand, she wrinkled a body panel. Only one shop in the 3 county area could do the repair. There was a 3 week wait and it cost an arm and a leg.

--It’s been “successful” only because Musk has convinced enough people that owning Tesla is a status symbol and a massive virtue signal.--

Well, also they're very good cars.
A lot of guys I respect and who are dyed in the wool petrolheads have given remarkably positive reviews of them.

--Also, gov't subsidies! --

I'm sure CA is still forkin em over, but I think the Model 3 pushed Tesla past the Fed subsidy threshold some time ago.

Another Bob

Yeah Jim, there’s that. But the big three have, for a while, been selling certain vehicles for four- and five-figure discounts too. IMO you still have to want to buy into the “Tesla” “concept”.

And congratulations (sarc) on learning one of the primary practical disadvantages of buying Tesla.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Love that Al B. Noni.
I have no particular taste in classical music, but I love this wholeheartedly. My copy has Heinz Holliger as the soloist.

My favorite is the 2nd track: Concerto a cinque, Op. 9/2: D Minor for Solo Oboe and Strings: Adagio.
The sustained initial note takes my breath away. It says to me: "Some days we have somewhere to go. Some days we might cut corners. But today ... slow down. Just slow down. Because today we take as long as needed to get it exactly right. No matter how long it takes."

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Tesla also downloads new software from time to time. Mrs NorCal had a friend working at Tesla at the time and made sure that she got a version which has a lot of necessary underlying hardware. So she continues (as I understand it) to get new features as software is rolled out. If you had older hardware the new software couldn't deliver the new features.

But things go south from time to time. One morning it just wouldn't go. We had to call Support and they taught us equivalent to "control/alt/delete" to reboot the car. I kid you not.

Another Bob

“ they're very good cars”

They look distinctive and go fast, I’ll give them that. Otherwise, to each his own.

I’ve read too many stories and saw too many photos of bad frame welds, broken suspension pieces, mismatched paint colors, bad gaps, poor driver assist performance, etc. Add to that a generally unfriendly customer support experience. Not something I’d recommend.
