Why don't they just give us the short list; the one describing the few disgusting, perverted, criminal, corrupt things the Biden family HASN'T done?

matt - deplore me if you must

Appeasing Ayatollahs, Hunter's gouples, exporting abortions, graft, grift, hookers and blow. All in a days work for La Famiglia Biden.

They make the Corleone's look good.

Good afternoon. Biden family values. *eyeroll*
Speaking of nuns, the daughter photo shopped herself on a picture of the landscape from the Mars Rover and put it on Facebook. Her 92 old great aunt (a Little Franciscan nun) responded that she looked so happy! Hubby and I are cracking up, because his aunt is on Facebook and maybe thinks the daughter is on Mars!

Mittens (not Bernie) swings over to oppose Tanden. He and Collins, Murkowski, etc. are always the reliable swing votes for the Dems. Not this time. So, if Mutt is against, then she must have some very heavy baggage that the Mormons don't like.

Tanden has some mean tweets, including calling Susan Collins "the worst." (Ha.)
This morning on Maria"s show, Rand Paul seemed to say that Tanden would withdraw her nomination? We'll see.

Jim Eagle

arlene,

She will withdraw. I can't even remember the last time a nominee stuck with it and was voted down. Was it a SCOTUS nominee?

MissMarple2

Marlene,

Me, too (on sunny days). Today was partly clouy, so got a little bit of dusting done.

Whoever remodeled this house put textured tile in the kitchen and laundry room, which resembles stone. However, due to traffic and pets I need a new mop, as the Swifter wet mop isn't much good for getting dirt out of the depressions. I have a Libmann mop which has a wriing mechanism, but it doesn't pick up very well.

I want a regular old sponge mop, but they are getting rare. Everything is steam mops and wet jets and such. NOT what I want. Plus they are expensive!

Jim Eagle

You won't believe what I had to do to post my comment at 5:33. When I tried to do it in real time I got a message from Safari that all comments are closed. I refreshed and got the same message. Eventually, I had to quit Safari and reload as well as skipping trough all previous comment pages.

Anyone else on Safari have the same issues?

MM, I was told by the Russian grout and tile cleaner (Oleg) to only use mild dish soap on the tile. I use a microfiber mop. I'm very anal about the floors. :) In our northern Maine house, after we had them sanded and refinished, I cleaned them with a white vinegar wash on my hands and knees! I'm too old for that now!

Marlene

MM, it is a running joke with hubby that I've tried every mop known to man. :) The microfiber are great because you can throw them in the wash with other cleaning rags.

Jane

Holy cow Marlene! If you ever need practice, come here!

MissMarple2

Marlene,

This isn't really tile. It's linoleum/vinyl made to look like tile, so I have the worst of both worlds.

I did the bathroom on my hands and knees a week or so ago, because I wanted to see what I was missing with the mop, especially in the corners and behind the toilet. BOY, did my knees let me know not to do that too often!

Jane

Was reading someplace today - I forget where, about the 4 stages of a takeover. Stage 4 is losing enough hope to not fight back.

That changes everything - including my mood!

MissMarple2

My daughter is tired of me bitching about the mops, so said she would get me one this weekend. I am going to have her take me to Lowe's or somewhere besides Kroger, which only carries Libmann.

When you have pets (as you know we do) you have to clean floors more frequently.

Jane

MissMarple2

Jane,

That is why CPAC is not having the fear porn merchants at this year's meeting, I think.

President Trump said that he never gives up, plus he is a happy warrior. So are Pompeo and a couple of others on the schedule.

We got up to 58 today, the warmest since some time in mid-December. Cooler tomorrow but still will hit 50-52. Rain over the weekend, so we need to get our groceries picked up tomorrow or Friday.

Birds of a feather. Because Ryan knows grift ::cough:: finance.

@WSJ

Former House Speaker Paul Ryan is joining Solamere Capital, a private-equity firm founded by Utah Sen. Mitt Romney’s son that has more than $1 billion in assets

Sidwhite

Re Porch from earlier today.
This Texan also wants no part of the bureaucratic fix for Texas energy. Next time we predict a run out of cold weather output capacity, I suggest running electric generation at 100% and asking forgiveness from EPA if sh!t hits the fan. Paying a couple of million in fines is better than letting folks die. More windmills is not the fix!

MissMarple2

henry,

How do you found a private equity firm and end up with $1 billion in assets? Where did those assets come from?

And what does a private equity firm DO?

If it's so easy that the moron Ryan can join it, I can only think that they are getting inside info from Mitt and others in Congress and are running the damn thing on insider information.

Assuming they actually invest money and aren't just laundering it for the CCP.

MM,
My wife got an O’Cedar mop/bucket system that has mop water in bottom and a foot driven spinner basket affair up top for wringing the mop. I thought “another gadget that works great in TV” that I’ll never use. Best thing I’ve used. Can quickly spin to damp mop or a half spin gets wet mop for bad spots.

MissMarple2

Sidwhite,

Thanks for the suggestion! I will see if I can find one around here to see if it's workable for what I need.

Warning david corn sourced:

One of Solamere’s initial investments was in a North Carolina financial-services firm operated by former officials of a financial company run by Allen Stanford, who was later convicted of running a massive Ponzi scheme. These officials had come from the Charlotte office of the Stanford Financial Group, which had been closed by the feds for selling phony certificates of deposit.

Senator Johnson supposedly asked ten questions about the January 6, 2021 incident. My only question is that the closed circuit video that Capitol Police Chief Sund viewed in real time be released . Maybe we can identify the individuals with the mountain gear and steel bars who broke the windows and how none of these actors were identified or apprehended. I am so sick of being fed garbage by both sides. It seems that both sides staged the riot and now see which side can persuade enough people of what actually occurred and the GOPe of course is siding with the Dems. Release the videos and do not give us a truth commission.

Miss M, private equity funds manage investor money by buying private (not on the stock exchange) companies cheap, slashing costs, raising prices, then selling bits and pieces to other private equity firms as each assembles something they can push on retirement funds via an IPO or SPAC. Having big names supposedly helps con investors and / or owners to give money or firms to them.

Slashing costs means moving production to China and coding to Bangaloreor Hyderabad.

I’ll get inquiries from a dozen a week. The latest story is to have some disabled veteran “that always dreamed of running a [your business here], and [your firm name here] looks special.” Same boiler room slugs (heh, insert Romney’s son and Ryan here) putting the money up and calling the shot. Spreadsheet mongers with zero imagination.

Thanks for the info on private equity funds. I am a complete ignoramus when it comes to financial firms, hedge funds, bond markets, etc. so I don't always know what's going on.

However, I had a big red flag pop up when I saw Ryan's name hooked up with a Romney kid and $1 billion.

The lesson is do not do just half of a wind & solar system unless you customers are willing to pay for the back half.

OL,

We did/do have the backup for the wind and solar. It just wasn't enough in the freak storm where every single county in the state was hit - and hit for a long time.

If we'd not bothered with the wind and solar, and done 100% fossil fuels with 20% fossil fuel backup, it would have been fine.

BUT EVEN IF IT HADN'T BEEN FINE I STILL DONT WANT TO PAY FOR MORE THAN 20% REDUNDANCY.

In case that wasn't already clear. :)

Narciso


I heard this segment:

Bjorn Lomborg was interviewed this morning on Glenn Beck's radio program. He said that if you combined all the existing batteries in the United States (used to store solar and wind energy), they would power the country for a whole 14 seconds!

Mr. Lomborg also had the temerity to suggest the money used to fight "global warming" would be better spent supplying clean drinking water to third world countries.

Round 2 Of Face-Ripping Short Squeeze Arrives Just As Hedge Funds Pile Into Shorts

The funny thing is the hedge fund guys and WS jerks were ridiculing the Reddit nerds for being dopes, which there is a lot of truth to.
But the hedgies sold GME short in single digits, had to bail in triple digits when they should have been shorting, watched it fall back to peanuts, sold short again when it was low and are now getting squoze again.
Who exactly are the morons here?

MissMarple2

Ignatz,

While there are some interesting similarities with Asimov's Foundation Trilogy in that article, the author seriously misreads both Trump and his supporters.

I don't think Trump will be content to run his businesses and endorse a few candidates. He's seen how things work (or more accurately don't work) and it drives him nuts. That's why he ran, and along the way made promises to his voters (which he kept as much as possible, unlike any other candidate ).

I think he wants this country to survive and thrive. That article takes the "We're doomed" attitude and I disagree. The author didn't count on the innovations on the internet, the new organizations Trump voters started, and the encouragement he gave to his people and their resultant courage.

Narciso

Marciso,

Imagine that the plot of the last 5 years was in a 3-part novel, and was assigned as a literature study in a semester of high school or college.

Remembering classes I have had, there would have been discussions of Biblical references, minor plot lines, the significance and symbolism of certain characters, similarities to both Shakespeare and Homer, historical references, etc.

While reading current events this past 5 years, I have had things lurking in the back of my mind.

"Mycenae, rich in gold..." Does that not sound lie Mar-A-Lago?

How about a trading company called Robin Hood? The Pope meeting at Ur?

every day seemingly we have more allusions in both names and events. It's very strange.

With the Rebbe's birthday soon upon us it's a good time to reflect and point out that naiveté is not an excuse anymore. It's also a good time to repeal all of these anti-Christ anti-American Public Laws but I won't hold my breath:

PUBLIC LAW 103-14
1993
https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/STATUTE-107/pdf/STATUTE-107-Pg45.pdf

Whereas the Congress recognizes that ethical teachings and values have played a prominent role in the foundation of civilization and in the history of our great Nation;

Whereas President William J. Clinton has indicated that ethical considerations will inform all of the decisions of his Administration;

Whereas ethical teachings and values have formed the cornerstone of society since the dawn of civilization and found expression in the Seven Noahide Laws;

Whereas sharing and education represent two pillars of these Laws and of ethical conduct;

Narciso
