I think the outfits that sell remaindered books, which that will surely immediately be, like Daedalus assuming Bezos hasn't killed them, will pretend it doesn't exist.

It's the standard money laundering scheme. Write a book that a bunch of liberal 501(c)(3)'s will buy in bulk to circumvent the federal election laws. He'll make a million dollars without anyone ever reading a single copy.
=========================================

Exactly. My sister and I, as well as Melinda and I and others on this site, have discussed how this is how to give bribes/payoffs to cronies.

For people who actually write, it's infuriating. Meanwhile, should a conservative write a book they are hit with all sorts of attacks.

I agree Ig. I think many are in denial about what is really going on.

My personal experience is that the wealthier of my clients just don’t see it, or they pretend not to see it, or (what I really think) is they refuse to see it. Or, maybe they are members of what someone who writes for the WSJ call the “pajama class.”

The guys who have been working the entire time, the landscapers, painters, carpenters, etc, see it. Today I spoke with a Boston Cop. He and I see things the same way. A few other contractors listened to our conversation, and did not disagree. I think they were relieved to hear someone else speaking about it.

So if the left is fighting
“White privilege” when are they going after Pelosi? Or is government privilege okay?

Went up in the mountains today hoping to get out of the smoke.
Got to the alpine valley I frequent, Hope Valley, and it was almost smoke free so I figured I'd keep going down the backside of the Sierra and maybe it would be even nicer. Yeah, no.
It was thick as fog and the stench of burning wildland was strong. I figured it had to be from a separate fire and back to Hope Valley we went.
Just checked. Sure enough. Beautiful mountain valley called Slinkard Valley has had portions burnt twice in the last 20 or so years rendering the north half not nearly so nice as it was when I was a kid. It's gated and I've never even seen anyone there. Lightning hit the south end and the map indicates all the rest that hadn't burned previously has now.

Where are they getting this stuff?

I have several FB friends that were invited to the RNC event in DC, and they were reporting on FB that their flights had many Antifa looking types on board, and several were warning about expected crap going on that night based on their sightings. I would hazard a guess that this was the talk of the attendees and Trump got wind of it.

It is frankly amazing to me that people seem to have lost their sense of imagination and forward thinking to think through what they are seeing and scheming out what the consequences of those things they are seeing are. Years of accepting narratives leads to a loss of critical thinking.

Captain Hate

Tom Seaver was the first pitcher I noticed that having really thick legs, like tree trunks, were great to push off with while pitching.

RIP

Apropos of nothing, I’m officially an old fart as of today: just received my first Social Security payment. Yay! Drinking a delightful’10 Pinino Riserva Brunello with chicken and smoked sausage pasta with lots of veggies in a light tomato broth. Fresh basil and Parmesan to finish. Of to Sun Valley tomorrow.

Watching “Sweet Charity” on TCM, and, my God, it is just absolutely everything about the culture of the late 60’s distilled and purified and dialed up to eleven. And that was just the first five minutes.

Narciso

I gave a slightly lower rank. In my novella.

Narciso

Movies is showing cabaret in a similar vein.

Porchlight

Where are they getting this stuff?

I don't know, where do Presidents and Senators usually get this "stuff"?

Security briefings perhaps?

Porchlight

I was so happy when I canceled cable, James D. For years I had been holding out because of TCM. Then I canceled and didn't even notice. Only wish I'd done it ten years earlier.

Did you ever see Antonioni's "Blow Up"? Great flick IMO, and also very 60s.

The Department of Homeland Security is quietly tying Antifa to foreign powers. All members will be subject to surveillance and searches, and the authorities won’t need a single warrant to do any of it.

Narciso,

"Dark Shadows" premiered when I was in my senior year, I think. (The original one, anyway.)

It was great fun for my sisters and me, with the combination of soap opera and ghost/horror story plot line.

Maybe it's why I am fascinated by the 2020 mis of President Trump/Q/Spygate stuff of 2020!

China has a 360 ship navy? Isn’t that called a “target rich environment “?

One would think when he typed that story on his computer, his screen and/or keyboard would have blown up!

Rogin along with eli lake, were the only half way decent reporters at the beast.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

The single thing Trump has done that is closest to arbitrary authoritarianism, the preposterous CDC rent plan Pin references will of course not be even mentioned by the progs who berate Trump for his authoritarianism, because of course they are authoritarians.

Yes thats wage and price controls stupid, but then they push to continue the conditions that require them

New York Post
@nypost

Gov. Cuomo says: Trump 'better have an army to protect him if he comes to NYC' https://trib.al/6EhE63T
================================
Legal people need to tell me if this is a threat. Sounds like it to me, but I would have to have either a recording or in writing so I could prove it.

Then I would send the Secret Service's A Team in to haul him into the closest federal facility.

Narciso

Man stand on a ziggurat of skulls has sone nerve.

So i tweaked some 'ripped from the headlines' for my story, say what if mrs broadwell was not merely doubletiming but was a matahari type or a rose like in an early ted bell.

I remember you, Alison! I've been keeping tabs (just a list) of all JOMers since daddy died when so many lurkers showed up to pay their respects (just by their screen names), so I recognized you at once.

And hi RG!

Totally agree with the live and let live attitude re TM--hosts who don't interfere, no matter how much we think their personal opinions are silly, are a golden commodity. Gratitude should rule. I do get lyle's frustration and that of others--can TM really think the NYT is anything resembling a reasonable news source?

Narciso

In high school they spoke so practically nc 17 about cuomo pere because of one speech, which was mostly balderdash he had a chip on his shoulder saying if he was narc conrad

MissMarple2

For those who put the earlier days out of mind, lets remember THIS campaign slogan, for which Ed Koch never forgave him:

(Thanks to casey garcia on Twitter.)

Narciso

Sorry marc conrad he would be set.for life.i gues thats the attitude he inspired in his brood.

MissMarple2

James D,

No, and look at the Cuomo slogan against Koch someone remembered from that mayoral campaign, which someone posted in the comments! (Posted at 9:57.)

CCGirl

I hate Cuomo. He is a horrible individual. The fact that all these jack ass mayors, govs, etc think they can preach about where the POTUS can go is too much. But I am preaching to the choir.

Husband keeps clicking thru stations as he avoids Hannity. Just saw another ad for Lysol wipes and sprays. Huh. I have not seen Lysol since prior to this mess in my store, or anywhere. Now that they are advertising does that mean it will actually be on shelves? Not to make a big deal about it, but why an ad when there is no product in any store?! Just another example of reality clashing with everything else. I am tired of it.

Narciso

Hannity is not the worst,,hes just unoriginal, there a a whole bunch of alternatives on pluto oann new max americas voice.

CCGirl

He just talks too much, and barely lets his guests speak. I forgot, tonight he was not on. Subbing is Trey Gowdy. About five minutes in my husband said, “I give up.”

MissMarple2

ccgirl,

I have a whole list of this type of stuff. Anonamom put clarice and me on to where to get Clorox/chlorine bleach since we couldn't find any. Daughter wants the snack-sized cheap paper plates for the cats but they are nowhere to be found.

Also in short supply: certain types of toilet paper and paper towels, my favorite brand of spray cleaners and furniture polish (which I have to have shipped), toilet bowl cleaner for hard water areas, etc.

Since the President did a WWII commemoration site today, maybe we should be given ration books!

Narciso

So thats one story idea, i still wonder what actually happened to that yellowcake in niger, did they ever an inventory check in those mines, after i saw hitman whose opening scene is set there, a bleak dry desert satrap i pondered further. In diamonds are forever they showed how rigorous the south africam mines are.

Mayor Ted Wheeler

Trump threatens to withdraw federal funds, possibly including health, education and safety net dollars Americans need to get through the pandemic and economic crisis. Again, he targets cities - including ours - with democratic Mayors, which he calls “anarchist jurisdictions.”
=====================================
The drama! The pathos! The pearl-clutching!

By the way, I agree with the President. I wouldn't enter Portland unless you had a gun poked in my back.

CCGirl

I get it Miss M. People are constantly looking for products, and it varies from week to week what we have in the store. Bleach is something we can get. Wipes are generic brands, as well as hand sanitizer and such. Many customers are fine with whatever they can buy. Many also insist on a brand name - good luck with that!

I joke that we are quartermasters. So many items are not available through our major wholesaler, so I need to check two or three other suppliers. So what used to take a minute or less to reorder now takes fifteen minutes. And this is for something as simple as clothespins.

CCGirl

Also, if our major supplier receives back ordered product, such as clorox wipes, they ration it our to the stores. So, yes it is a bit of “rationing” going on. Then we in turn informally say customers can’t hoard. We will tell someone they can buy two, but depending we may change it. Sorry to bore you all to death with the minutiae of my business 😴

Narciso

Its just overwhelming the system. Ccgirl its terrible they ran out of coin for some strange reason.

Hey, man, they OWE me! 😉

Narciso

Wheeler has the imagination of the idiot banker thar invited banes mercenaries into the city, that is none.

CCGirl

Narc, the coin issue has not been an issue, but my business is small. My bank limits coin to $50 a day per denomination. I imagine it’s an issue for the Walmarts of the world, but I barely shop anywhere these days.

These mayors all suck. I can’t recall if it was posted here, that the radicals plan on laying siege to the White House until November. (Probs here - duh). Well that would be the best free ad for Trump ever.

By the way this was probably the first slow day I have worked since this mess began. I almost fell asleep. I’ve been going at 110+ and an abrupt change to -50 is rough. So I am curing it with lots of bourbon 😁
