It would be nice if both sides stopped posting pictures of political enemies standing next to some bum in posed pictures as though it, by itself, is evidence of guilt by association or endorsement of the bum.
Well known people of all political stripes pose with other people they barely know or don't know at all, all the time.
If that's the only "evidence" you have it's no evidence at all.

It makes sense to me that Trump would be going after DeSantis. DeSantis is the top rival to Trump. If Trump can get DeSantis out of the way quickly, his only opposition will be the squish candidate (Liz Cheney or whoever). DeSantis could be a strong rival if his fundraising holds up.

Re DeSantis being young: I doubt DeSantis will look at this from the perspective that he can wait. If one wants to be POTUS, one takes the plunge. In any event, a DeSantis loss to Trump for the GOP nomination in 2024 wouldn't hurt DeSantis's chances in 2028. The only factor I could see causing DeSantis to decide not to run is his wife's health.

DeSantis-Hillary wouldn't be as fun as Trump-Hillary redux, but it would still be a hoot.

Coincidences being noted, Eggy and Kinzinger, together is the highlight. I have no clue about the common denominator in all the pics.

Speaking of coincidences, this dropped right after the report of the Fed bailing out the big banks again after their derivative portfolios blew up on the Thomas Cook bankruptcy back in Sept., 2019.

Also from Ace:

Why you can't hire engineers. (GitHub)

Probability 1: Your company sucks.

Probability 2: Everything else sucks, so even though they are actively looking for a new job because their current company sucks, you need to work twice as hard just to convince them that your company might suck less.

Probability 3: Someone at your company installed Node.js without your knowledge, and now it looms over your headquarters like a great looming thing.

So sorry to hear about your mother Clarice.

I've read that Ray Epps founded a chapter of Oath Keepers also. Maybe he was just a Hillary plant trying to rile up the crowd. Strange that the feds would put him on their list then remove him. Dunno!

Thanks.

The unfortunate thing about the OSHA ruling is it is not final. It allows the stay to continue while the courts do their usual dilly dally. Meanwhile, there is no clear rule to allow a reopening without a vax mandate. Essentially the robed nitwits locked me out of my office for the duration as the only compliant reopening (with vax mandate) is stayed.

Shakespeare was right about lawyers.

Condolences on your loss clarice.

JUST IN: A Maryland grand jury on Thursday indicted Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby on two counts of perjury and two counts of filing false mortgage applications.

The perjury charges stem from Mosby's application for pandemic relief money in May and December of 2020, when the attorney filed for federal relief dollars even though she "had not experienced any of the enumerated financial hardships she claimed to have experienced."

Does the regulation actually call them YACHTS? I would have thought they would have used a euphemism like “private passenger vessels measuring 50 meters or more in length” or something less blatant.

Everyone knows they were were between Lincoln and Mike Douglas.

MM-

The Census Bureau takes the raw data, the 10+% I quoted, and statistically smooths the data over a number of years and comes up with a "Seasonally Adjusted" figure that is the headline number that AP reports, verbatim.

The NonSeasonally Adjusted, Month over Month data, the raw figures I follow, are as follows:

Retail Sales +10.01%
Excluding Autos +10.69%

The Lincoln–Douglas debates (also known as The Great Debates of 1858) were a series of seven debates between Abraham Lincoln, the Republican Party candidate for the United States Senate from Illinois, and incumbent Senator Stephen Douglas, the Democratic Party candidate.

I'm sure now they will just remove this from Virginia's history books because it doesn't promote the right race.

Steph, Mrs. OL and I were there when he won his first Open down under. In fact when he won, he came to our box and gave my friend his racket for rooting for him so loudly (she's from Texas). Have watched him win a number of his other 20 since then.

Exciting tennis.

As we watch the ridiculous Covid treatment of him, our comment is to question if the decision makers have personal bets placed on who wins this year. Would not surprise me in the least.

But banning the top player makes their Open a joke and would sure keep me off spending 20 hours on a plane to get there again.
