Hello people that live in my computer and are reliably holding forth the political debates of the day.

It's nice to see all of you again.

I'm involved in a project to grow 1,000 acres of high grade CBD Hemp. We have already sold three years worth of production (there's a contract, but it is not without risks)

The result is that I have entered into the most manic stage of my entire life. When it's over, if you're interested, I'll be glad to tell the tale.

In the meanwhile, hello everyone, I'm gladdened by the static nature of your presence.

PLAU,
ItzME

I would be a ....YOU would be a good chief of staff for Trump.

Better than who he planned in any case.

I'll lose this soon...

It seems to me that Mueller is throwing a head fake. He has the two women and trump is denying there was campaign $ used.

But the real problem Trump has is the Enquirer. Because his records are Mueller's records. Those are the campaign contributions that are Trump's flank.

Because if they weren't, then they were gifts to Donald that Donald did not report on his Income taxes.

Because we have to be sure that if they weren't gifts then they were bills due. The monetary value of which was not disclosed as his companies were entering into financial contracts. That's fraud.

(Keep Dreaming)

OK I will...

He should ask Michael Bloomberg!

No way Bloomberg would turn that down! That is a tear down turnaround project. Bloomberg would love to pull it off, and Save America at the same time!

Bloomberg might actually be able to do it. It might be enough to keep Trump out of JAIL! In office Trump can hide under the desk for two years. Shit, he's had people sitting in his waiting room for two years. "Today might be the day!"

Solves Trump's other problem... the one with the Nazis. Trump is going to have to go home someday. You better do something if you're coming to do business in NYC and naming Bloomberg would go a long way towards that. Maybe not as much as Kavanaugh helped you with the hillbilly crowd.

Hey that's a legitimate name now. Now the Wisconsin has decided that the votes of the landed gentry are more valid and important than the votes of the city dwellers.

Something has to restore sanity. The market is dead, Why? Oh well tariffs and brexit ... No. The president tweeted that there was a deal with China and the market touched 26,000 (in a Bear market, so it's aided by the short squeeze) Then it came out that there was no deal... and the world said, "this fucking guy is really a fucking moron!" Let couldn't let themselves believe it prior. But there is no getting around it. And now the Kelly thing (I do lay that on Kelly though. He owed US that much. Maybe he has a plan, he's a mili...tary ...guy... ruh roh rorge!  Good news is I think most military men honor the Constitution and would not be in favor of military rule.)

(Dream on...)

WAIT!

There's a Reality Game Show here, "Who Wants to be a Billionaire ('s Bitch)?"

The Apprief Of Staff.

Writes itself. POC, SOP. Bing Bang boom.

This could anchor a Thursday Night, Solid! 10-11...Into the news.

If there's a way to make money. You almost hate to put the idea in print. Shots of Agent Overcoat talking outside for no particular reason. But now what he's talking about is the assignment he gives the candidates  (anncay ullermay)

Kavanaugh's first day of the rest of his life? They served him up a hot meatball hero sandwich, there.

Swing and a miss. Kav goes with Ken (KenKav, dibs, Likewise KavKenaughedy) and ducks.

Interesting?

Is Kennedy actually going to be the moderate now? And the mentor? Glass half full?

Maybe Bart has aspirations to be something more than the piece of shit we all saw through his hearing process. If thatís the goal, have at it, though it may take a couple of decades to turn the ship around.

Glass half full.

While I'm asking. How is it possible that Kelly didn't set up a list of his replacements? Isn't that the Chief Of Staff's job?

But how is it is it that Mr. Long Coat's Rolodex is about as big and powerful as his Mr. Wiggles? How did he not know there was going to be an opening? And what about the vast right wing cabal? Where is the Heritage Foundation, or the Tri Lateral Commission?

The world was comfortable with the illusion that the US Democracy was an illusion. Now it seems that those Illuminati should have bought a Duracell, because that flashlight is OUT!

Zooey Deschanel could crack Leon Redbone like a dry stick.
She is the she in She and Him, isn't she? She must like the song.

Need to find my Leon Rebone Christmas album. Only version of Frosty the Snowman I can listen to without wanting to self harm.

Heh.   There's precious little store Christmas music that doesn't lead me to the razor blade aisle.  Or the pahrumpapum rum. 


Kid - so the intelligence community was just wrong about mbs?  Enlighten us.

Barton, you FUCK!


I'm out, but you're out too! (actually I might be ok, except that I'm probably ...) There's that song. The winner manages to get through the season without hearing it or of it. Or speaking of it.

You spoke of it. So I'm (maybe) out.

Which is a fine lead into why I'm transported in here like I'm Dr. Mc Coy or something. Hey everybody, How are you doing?

So the SCOTUS wants to look at Auer v. Robbins where agencies are given "deference" when it comes to interpreting their regulations.

Is this a question of degree or a "Yes/No" sort of decision?

IMHO the idea sounds sound to me at the basis. Language is imperfect. Activities are often best understood by those that are involved in the process. So it makes sense to give some deference. Perhaps not total deference, if they don't have a policy against murder they don't have the leeway to excuse the murderer. (Whether with a gun or chemicals that "appeared" in the ground water.)

Maybe the word needs to be respect, or regard?

Thank you.

Good seeing you.

Sorry to interrupt.

Can someone tell me please if there has been even a little bit of "Say What Now?"  Over the Turks having a recording of Kh's khilling? In the Saudi Embassy.

So Turkey has bugged the Saudi embassy? Isn't that against any international law? I know that when the US hired Soviet builders to construct the US Embassy they were SHOCKED to find the whole place like Swiss cheese with microphones everywhere.

But the embassy is supposed to be sovereign territory of the nation, not the host. I just haven't seen any raised eyebrows so I thought I'd ask here.

Hi,

Can someone please explain to me how the Governor of a state (FL) can, after 8(?) years in office can turn around and blame anyone but himself for an effed up voting system?

It was the year 2000 that pointed out the problems in FL. This is 2018. It takes very little grasp of math to understand that they have had 18 years to fix the problems. Scott was the ...

There is no reasonable explanation for this! This event should disqualify Scott for any roll north of toilet paper!

IMHO.

Scott is a posturing prevaricating piece of political poop? 

Republicans only fix voting system problems that allow too many Democrats to vote. 

Best news is that 1.4 million ex-felons have had their franchise restored down there.  Given their demographic, we could be seeing the last of the close races in Florida.
LOL
Then compare the vote for Florida Governor to the vote reinstituting voting rights to former felons.

Trying to determine intent by percentage is problematic (especially in FL).

Why? Because the raw vote totals may be vastly different. There have been, what, 9+- votes cast for Senator/Governor in FL? split 50/50 (ish) but if the Floridians forgot to fill in the ballot for referenda there could conceivably be a 100% vote for the item even though only 25% of the people voted for it. (Hypothetically)

TBT, I don't know and I don't care. It has been 18 YEARS! You have been governor for 8 years, you didn't fix the election system (if anything, your admin worked to make the process more opaque, and problematic). Have you no shame? Are you not at all embarrassed?

Let's not forget that the R's kept Senator Franken from taking his seat for a number of MONTHS after the Senate reconvened in 2009.There is no justification to rush through the Florida recounts.   

It sure would be cool to see the Florida elections overturned. Because more people voted for the D than the R.

Quick story...

One day I was in Atlanta GE for a meet. The cab from the airport, the driver had a thick African accent. I asked , "So where are you from?" he said.

"Minnesota."

The next week I was in Sand Diego for a meet. I'm in the cab, the driver has a thick African accent, Why waste a good conversation line? "Where are you from?"

"Minnesota."

Apparently these guys were in lotteries for US residency (if not also citizenship) as refugees and they were both assigned to  colleges in MN.

I can't quite imagine their shock when they saw snow. I talked to my Uber driver with the Jamaican accent and he talked about trying to wrap his head around snow as a construct when he visited Maine from TN (where he worked for Toyota.) The SD guy said that he drove a truck, and one day he had to drive to SD for a dropoff. He went home the next day and moved his wife and kids to CA!

How is it relevant? It's not really, except that Ilhan Omar was elected to Congress from Minnesota donchaknow.

I'm glad I used last night to catch up on sleep. It wasn't as brutal as I would have thought. But I could not stomach watching the returns. It brought back the last time I stayed up. PTERSD (Post Traumatic Election Returns Stress Disorder)

Hi!

I'm back from the beach. I'm sort of acclimating to the role of "reality" in my life.

I finally reset up this computer and found that it remembers my password (my other one does not. So  Here I'm iz (still not the zombie wolf I once was. Happily.) Today is election day. And we're voting. On Saturday I went door knocking for a state senate candidate. I know nearly nothing about the guy, but he's a D and I figure, getting D's out to vote is going to be our primary ... perhaps General is the better word, objective. I was sent to a relatively friendly neighborhood and yet many didn't answer the door. I am semi scary looking anyway.

I won't say that I am between passions right now. I'm working on several at the same time, which I admit, might mean I'm not really working on any of them passionately. But my prime(ish) focus is on the Asiatic Bittersweet, with a minor in Japanese Knotwood. I can NOT get over how sanguine people are about the Bittersweet! It is killing our trees and UGLIFYING our highways (The secondary roads are a heart break! ) I'm working on putting together an investor group to start an "Invasive Species Abatement" company. This is the Kudzu of the north. It will NEED to be dealt with at some point. It might as well be now. Somebody is going to have to do it, it might as well be me.

Josh,

Thank you very much for your kind comment about my photos. I'm working on a series where the buyer would put the image on the back or front of a door such that when the door is closed it is a portal to the beach or the woods or the open road or some such where.

Also a wall to wall series where the picture is nine feet long by up to a foot wide panoramic images. Similarly floor to ceiling strips that can frame the door or delineate the wall at the corners.

I'm using my Cell phone camera. The trick is to use the panorama setting which works by taking multiple pictures and stitching them together. The result is a high resolution image that is more than the camera can take for a still shot. So they are well focused as the pano stretches.

I don't have as many pictures to take here as I did on the beach, mostly because I don't go outside as often as I did when I was on the beach. Not happy about that, but such is life.

Peace everybody. Just think, tomorrow the political ads are over!

PLAU
