Pelicans sign Jarrett Jack.
Fans seem happy.  Some say Jrue can play some 2 guard.

Oh, I don't think Jack will steal another starting PG job ...
But he is capable of stealing Elfrid's lunch.

JRue is best when he can play as a combo guard.
Lets him focus on scoring and saves energy for his very good defense.
He's less comfortable playing fulltime traditional PG.
But JRue needs to stay healthy.
Having Elfrid and Jack lets him keep his minutes/effort in check somewhat.  So much for Frank Jax.

Otherwise, I like DeAndre Liggins defense.
he's a bit too aggressive and foul prone.
But if he can amp down a little, he really gets at players.
Didn't realize he's 30 already.
Seems he still needs to slow down a little on both ends.

So a bench of Randle - Darius Miller - Ian Clark/Liggins - Elfrid/Jack
Ajinca and Okafors as backup Bigs.
(assuming Sol Hill starts and Randle rampages on the 2nd unit)

If JRue and AD stay healthy.
Mirotic and ETwuan bomb away.
They could be in contention for the 5-7 seed.
Though I'd expect them more around 8th.
Maybe Gentry can put it together for them.

Good landing spot for Jarrett.

Happy for JJ.

A Pro's Pro.

I think it works better if the Who are you? and Jonah response come before he turns on the light ...

More police corruption in a white cop's shooting a black man.

FIVE search warrants issued, none of the for Officer Guyger's apartment.


Now she's moved out.

But her memes tell a story of their own.

Chef Boyardee Ravioli

I was surprised when I found out that Chef Boyardee was a real person, an actual famous chef.  Ettiore Boiardi even catered Woodrow Wilson's wedding.  Apparently was one of the early factors in making Italian food widespread in America instead of just niche ethnic food.

"Foreign-born individuals exhibit remarkably low levels of involvement in crime across their life course." (Bianca Bersani, University of Massachusetts, 2014. Published in Justice Quarterly.)

The immigrants come to America for a better life, and very few of the immigrants are criminals.

No wall!


Tony V.

"Legal immigrants" and "illegal immigrants" are two different things.

Not all Mexican immigrants/illegal immigrants become brain surgeons in the US;

“He showed up every day, and he did his job. He was patted on his back. They turned a blind eye to the reality of documentation,” Richards said.

Investigators say they believe Rivera was in the country illegally when he abducted Tibbetts as she went on an evening jog, killed her and dumped her body in a cornfield.


Best to seal the borders and make sure that people already in the US, and who are seeking to enter the US legally, really are who they say they are.

As we just learned Mrs. Ford won’t testify next week until an FBI investigation is completed.
Her intentions are now clear. Delay Kavanaugh a seat on SCOTUS until after the mid-terms.

This is, of course, one of the stupider things that Red has ever posted and he's posted a ton of them!

In this instance, even if they have the vote after the mid-term elections and even if the Dems claim sufficient members of the Senate that they would be able to block the nomination after inauguration day, there is nothing that would preclude the GOP's ramming it through duing their lame duck session.

In a letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and obtained by CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," Christine Blasey Ford's attorneys argue that "a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions."

The letter from Ford's lawyers notes that despite receiving a "stunning amount of support from her community," Ford has also "been the target of vicious harassment and even death threats" and has been forced to leave her home.

"We would welcome the opportunity to talk with you and Ranking Member Feinstein to discuss reasonable steps as to how Dr. Ford can cooperate while also taking care of her own health and security," the letter from Ford's lawyers said.

"What we're saying is there should be an investigation because that's the right thing to do," Ford's attorney Lisa Banks told Cooper.

Granting Kiid's and Red's GOP talking points that there would be nothing for the FBI to find, just for the sake of the discussion, what would the loss be were the FBI allowed to actually do the investigation?

What's the risk?

Only one, for the GOP: That they find something.

And that is what the GOP and President Trump fear.

Tail light's out - lets look for drugs

Sort of like that, right?

Lo siento - no circo

Figures you cannot tell the difference between illegal search and siezure vs. an accusation of a crime from a respected member of the community against another respected member of the community and concommitant investigation from that.

But yes, for those carrying contraband, exactly like that.

Your besmirching the FBI and suggesting that they would fabricate evidence against Kavanaugh shows just how far you and your party have strayed from their Law and Order roots.

Yeah, everybody's against you, so better prevent an investigation.

No wonder you think Mueller should be stopped!
