Henry, that is funny!

could someone report what sbw posted? I tried looking for it several times today, but I am an idiot. Thanks

CCGirl

Repost.

Shark officially jumped.

Umpire Joe West (a known idiot) ejected the Nats GM - who was in a third-level suite, by himself - for not wearing a mask.

Hoyden, I posted that earlier today. Glad you posted it again as it’s funny. We could all use some laughs these days. The last video is my fav, I played it for my son and husband, and they thought it was much better than they expected it to be.

CCGirl

ABob, husband says he was watching it. He said Rizzo was in the top ring of the bowl. Rizzo was yelling. But he says it was not heard on the tv. He said no one knew what was going on.

CCGirl

Right, you just posted the third level info. Duh. Sorry

Another Bob

It would make much more sense that way ccgirl. I hope your hubs is right.

Not that it makes West any less a moron. One of the top three worst umpires in baseball.

Well, He said the announcers were baffled, and that the chatter is what you say. He says some guy named, “Wendell Stat is another one.” I think he just wants me to relate that to you. I have no idea.

GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Organizers anticipated roughly 700 boats would participate in the inaugural "Great American Boat Parade" Sunday on Lake Lanier, however, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources says nearly 4,000 showed up.

Fox reports that the Pope says that gossiping is even worse than Covid-19.

So, I guess this is a subtle way of telling us not to talk.

Those are decent questions, Miss Marple, but I like that within sixty days of the election, the Dems are expending time and money in Wisconsin!!

--That's the entire problem with the press sticking their noses in and making it political and slanted to the dem side.--

They either don't care or don't realize there are real long term consequences to shredding your credibility by becoming the house organ [you are free to pick which organ] of one party or the other and becoming propaganda whores.
Something ideologues [and cultists] never think to themselves; gee, what if I'm wrong or things don't turn out the way I think they will?

Thread, which begins with:

"@petestrzok told CBS that the Australians came forward because they were triggered by a Trump speech.

The problem is that the Australians came forward *before* Trump's speech.

Strzok is lying or the Australians lied. Take your pick.

Either way, this destroys the predicate."
=========================================

Thread includes lots of videos and screen caps. This is great, because it shows that they are liars AND they are getting rattled.

Yay!

It must have been one of those videos today that got everyone all fired up.

CCGirl

I may sound nuts! But this is my favorite Sunday night of the year. The store is closed tomorrow! No Monday early am wake up! It only happens once a year, unless the important holidays fall on a Monday.

Just sayin. So please excuse me if I am obnoxious tonight. Stuck at home during this mess, so I hang here.

MissMarple2

Saw a couple people today theorizing that Biden is getting so befuddled that they are going to pull him out and put Hillary in.

I don't know if they can do that legally, but of course that hasn't seemed to stop them before.

So, if they DO do that, will she still have Kamala as the VP candidate? Or will Kamala advance and Hillary be the VP?

And won't that leave the dems with two rather unpleasant women running?

Another Bob

Ccgirl, yeah Hunter Wendelstedt. Second generation umpire. Not good.

My list is Angel Hernandez, CB Bucknor, and West. Jerry Meals coming on strong on the outside.

MissMarple2

Oh, ccgirl, I am glad to have you!

This is the only place I hang out other than a couple places on Twitter once in a while, and do NOT think you over-post! Look how much I posted today!

CCGirl

this is my favorite Sunday night of the year.

Not for me. I'm laboring away at a new proposal that is due on Tuesday. Damn these things are a lot of work! I'll get it submitted, and actually it is turning out pretty well.

The good news is, that if it funds, I keep the wolves away from the door for a while.

Thanks, Miss M. You were commenting earlier about vaccinations. Please make sure you have the pneumococcal pneumonia shot. My mother avoided doctors after I was born. Her lungs were a mess, and after catching pp, she was never herself again. (Sorry to be so serious). She was not a smoker.

Organizers later said a total of 1,848 boaters registered for the event but anywhere from 3,200 to 3,400 joined in on the parade. The event was also raising money for Tunnels to Towers. They're still working to see how much they were able to gather for the charity.

CCGirl

Sorry, DrJ. I did slog through paperwork today, and still more tomorrow. You and I have very different occupations, but we both help people in our own way. Something to be said about making one’s own way.

I am overwhelmed with tomatoes, and I am pretty sure the acidity is causing me some issues. I love tomatoes, so I hope to can them and not indulge so much right now.

MissMarple2

ccgirl,

I am sure I will have to get one this year. On the 14th my Medicare supplemental Humana is sending a nurse practitioner to do a wellness exam on me, I guess to see that I am not at death's door and that my daughter isn't abusing me and stuff like that. So, I am sure she will tell me where to get one and also give me a new doctor recommendation.

Thanks for your concern, though.

“The blacks” are “too stupid” to vote for me, Trump said.

And South Africa was better under the racist apartheid regime. “Mandela fucked the whole country up. Now it’s a shithole,” Trump said.

Anybody who supports Trump is co-signing his racism. https://washingtonpost.com/politics/cohen-trump-book/2020/09/05/235aa10a-ef96-11ea-ab4e-581edb849379_story.html

ccgirl: I love tomatoes

Tomatoes use more than acid to fight back. Lectins cause inflamation.

When you eat a lot of tomatoes, do your joints ache?

CCGirl

Narc, Those LA posts are good. I’ve never been to California, but it looks beautiful. Too bad it is run by a bunch of morons.

DrJ

ccgirl,

Go ahead and enjoy your day! No one is holding a gun to my head to live as I do.

In better news, a chicken is on the rotisserie and is nearly done, and some of MrsJ's outstanding tomato sauce is simmering on the range. Not for tonight, but for use in the bleakness of winter.

And yes, we did hit 107F today.

CCGirl

Sbw! I have been making tomato sauce from the piles of them that I have in my kitchen. Years ago I had some uti issues, and no docs could help me and so I determined that it was coffee. Now I have the problem a little bit, but I only have one cup of coffee a day, and I have been chowing on tomatoes in one form or another. I eliminated them for a few days. Much better. Being a dummy I forgot as a customer gave a jar of fresh toms. Needing to use them up I made more sauce. 😳

A few years ago I grew eggplant, and I was eating a lot with fresh tomatoes. I was achy. Then I read about nightshade plants. I must be one who loves nightshades but can’t tolerate them in high doses.

I also have fresh peppers. Sigh

Sorry if too much info there!

Narciso

No you keep busy, its a good hobby.

https://www.scmp.com/economy/china-economy/article/3100229/china-exporters-under-pressure-soaring-us-shipping-costs

China exporters under pressure from soaring US shipping costs ahead of Christmas as demand outweighs supply

The cost of shipping by sea from Shanghai to the west coast of the US more than doubled between May to August, to the highest rate since 2009
Many shipping firms cut back their operations earlier this year due to the coronavirus, but are now struggling to meet demand as exporters worry about the escalating trade conflict

I find some of this confusing. Chinese exporters are exporting earlier than normal with fewer available cargo ships. OK, shipping costs go up. That I understand, but the claimed demand for exports doesn't add up to me. If the Chinese are shipping stuff earlier than usual this stuff will just sit in US warehouses longer than usual.

Jimmyk, what am I missing here?

A massive Disinformation Campaign is going on by the Democrats, their partner, the Fake News Media, & Big Tech. They create false stories and then push them like has never been done before, even beyond the 2016 Campaign. It imperils our Country, and must stop now. Victory 2020!
=========================================
One thing is that people are getting wise to it and know how to fight it, to a certain extent.

Example is the stupid "Trump is anti-military" attack. That was not only a stupid attack but an epic fail.

The Department of Defense is in discussions over whether SMIC should be added to the Commerce Department’s entity list.
The list essentially restricts those companies from receiving specific goods made in the U.S.
The administration’s move is part of a continued effort to put pressure on China’s technology firms.

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/09/04/chinese-bank-profits-will-weaken-further-in-second-half-of-2020-fitch-says.html

Banks in China are likely to record greater declines in profits in the second half of this year as bad loans are set to rise further as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, according to Fitch Ratings.
Chinese authorities aim to dispose 3.4 trillion yuan ($497 billion) worth of bad loans from the banking sector this year — only one-third of that have been written off, said the agency.

It says everything about how broken the media is that after @JeffreyGoldberg
helped lie this nation into the Iraq War, he wasn't run out of journalism in embarrassment, but rather given promotions to continue his shoddy "journalism" unabated. Our "elites" constantly fail upwards.

Not only does @JeffreyGoldberg have low editorial standards, he's long been a propagandist for the Military Industrial Complex.

He pushed their lies to get us into the Iraq War & is pushing their easily debunked lies about Trump, b/c unlike Biden, Trump won't support their wars.

Just got back from an afternoon at the beach at a new state park in Hallockville, NY. (That's okay, most New Yorkers don't know where Hallockville is, in fact people who live five miles from this beach don't know where Hallockville is. ) Anyway, it's a new state park that has water frontage on Long Island Sound, which is my favorite body of water. Lots of Hispanics have found this place, where for an $8 parking fee you can stay all day. I noticed that most of them do not follow rules, such as fishing and not throwing back extremely small fish, smuggling propane tanks down to the beach, etc. etc. Whatever, we had a nice time, and now I am grilling chicken. I can't seem to find actual footage on YouTube of Djokovic hitting the line judge, just the play before and then immediate aftermath. I guess the cameramen were asleep.

Love the “Hunter Weldenstat” comments. Hubs kept saying what I heard as “Wendell Stat.” I heard a first and last name. I also have a customer who goes by “Wendell.” Glad you baseball fans could piece it together.

The night is getting better. Hubs over drank early, and he is in bed. Daughter left to visit a friend overnight. Son pops down but is mostly in his room. Victory for me! Alone and posting! And drinking just a little bit 😉
