Of the guys on the list,

Fizz or Blatt
Then
Borrego
Then
Stack
Then
Budenholzer or Woody

In terms of guys we haven’t had reports about, I’d have Mike Miller, Silas, and Jay Wright bunched in between Borrego and Stackhouse. Monty Williams would be behind Blatt and Fizz, ahead of Borrego. I’m trying not to think about it too much though.

No to Jax and Jet, though Jet over Jax.

You're right. I meant to write vertigo. LOL!!!!

Like you don't know the difference between "benefactor" and "beneficiary," I don't know the difference between "vertigo" and "best."

LOL!
Say Good Night, Gracie.

Because Red’s meds just kicked in. The withered idiot is plum tuckered out. Aww. The cute little reactionary is starting to make drool bubbles. Red is so precious and adorable.

Trump made the case by running for and acting as president in the way he has. We’re just participating in its painstaking revelation amid a cacophony of desperate and deranged denial.

The conclusion (last act) will be a lot closer once the DNC cracks the RNC like Avanatti cracked Cohen’s “law practice” in a few short months.

In the meantime, eat your peanuts and enjoy the show.

Or don’t. Drown out news of the great betrayal, conspiracy against the United States, in a shower of golden notes of trump good news. Fake it till they break him, in other words.

OK but that's just a different "They" and a different "Something." Also Aligators don't eat people. Crocodiles! They're the ones!

You’re right. Crocodiles.

Tick tock. Tick tock.

Jarred Vanderbilt out of KU declared for the draft but won’t get an agent. I really like him as a second rounder, a guy to develop as future SF.

I agree with Comey's assessment of an Impeachment. It's waiting for "They" to do "something." Instead of taking personal responsibility for allowing this situation to have developed in the first place. Instead of lacing up your work boots and actually doing the work it is going to take! From "ABCs to the XYZs."

I’m expecting alligators in the water hazard at Mar Lagoon to render their judgment ahead of the other parties you mention.

There’s no chance any of this brilliant move will backfire and cause blowback and boil out of control. Nah, no chance...

The chaos president designs more chaos. Blood and fire for all our friends. Yuge chaos. The best chaos and destruction, everyone says.

I just read that "Rudy Giuliani joins Trump legal team."

I am confused about why that is something that the President would want.

Rudy heard that trump’s reelection campaign is an infinite money spigot for shady lawyers and the bloated bastard is already so fucked that if the case rolls further into Hell, Rudy can shift blame to past and present lawyers even less capable than his despised and despicable self on the legal trump-tanic.

As a former prosecutor, Rudy cut his teeth building cases against scumbags like trump. Trump believes this gives Rudy special insight as to what is happening in the various prosecutions underway against him. He’s right about this. Rudy also has strong fascist leanings. Things should go swimmingly with those two unless Rudy stupidly gives trump the good legal advice he needs to hear, to resign and see what kind of deal he can get for pleading guilty, guilty, guilty.

In case you are missing it -

The power of WINSLOW emerging in Miami

Careful who you write off.



Yup. Justice totally swung the game. They can definitely ride him to victory in this series.

Trump is doing a great job! Red bought steaks from the great man! So many steaks! Why can’t Red find his good trump steaks anymore? Obama and socialism killed trump steaks!

The Obama Economy was a good one?
During the Obama years the GOP took over Congress, won 1000 seats in state governments, and won 35 governorships.
Those democrat economic decisions of high taxes and stifling regulations didn’t set well with voters. Notice how once the GOP passed a tax cut the country zoomed to full employment with the CBO predicting 3.3%
GDP.


That was back when you had Roger “shower power” Ailes and Bill “Kid loofah” O’Reilly to do your lying for you. This time it will be harder to attack American values like the fascists did in 2010 and subsequent races during the Obama administration. At least you have managed to keep yourself supportive of the creeping decline emanating from the republican death bed.

I noted your post, like all your favorite campaigns are all smear and no facts.

---In 2015, Shulkin left the private sector when he was named by President Barack Obama as Under Secretary of Veterans Affairs for Health in the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)---

---On January 11, 2017, Shulkin was nominated by President-elect Donald Trump as United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs.[22] Trump, who had first considered five others, nominated Shulkin after a recommendation by Ambassador David M. Friedman---

Not according to Wiki, an Obama choice.

My latest comp hearing was completely done by an outside private agency with a local private physician. The entire proceeding from applying  to hearing took less than a month. The friendly Dr. told me she was contracted to speed up the highly criticized appeal process. It was held in her local office. Still awaiting the result. Appeals in the past took 6 mos. to a year before a usually cynical VA doctor at a crowded VA facility, if you were lucky.

I’m glad to hear you finding the process is improved from what it was.
