My friends in Rhode Island: Sheldon Whitehouse is an idiot. The same to any friends I have in Minnesota in re Al Franken. Good Lord. This lady has had to put up with more idiotic, non knowledgeble bloviating than Tillerson did and its Education. Which figures. If the Dems want to remain in power anywhere then the Education is the place to start and make your mark. Not the EPA but here. They are not pulling any punches but showing parents in poor school districts why their districts are that why.

Mrs. JiB and I are watching the Betsy DeVos hearings. If you are not then you missing the huge or YUGE or ENORMOUS difference betweenn the Marxist-Leninist Fascist version of education kids to be useful idiots and those of Trump's nominee. And I don't rse to step in a give intellectual differences because there are those regardless of the regression in education policy to date. What is striking is the defense of common public education based only on the protection of the teacher unions and not the common outcome for students. So go Betsy and no matter what you do, it will be magnitude better than anything the commiecrat party will ever bring.

I had a dream last night fighting a very bad sinus infection (another story, another time) where Roger Goodell had to present to Tom Brady, Bill Belichik and Robert Kraft the Super Bowl LI trophy. I woke up in laughter and blew out my nose. I fell terrific now.

Damn it Stephanie, send me map clues so I can keeo up. I can see a JOM travel site offering guided tours of the 1/17 comment section on Atlanta. On another note, I have been thinking about a JOM TV show. Maybe on the new CRTV channel or even our own. We could feature TM as the new generation Brian Lamb and have our own WH correspodent with Clarice, our own Washington area correspondent with Janet and our Education correpsondent with rse, our Science guy with Dr. J. our foreign affairs expert with daddy, our Interior correspondent with Lyle, our HHS correspondent with anonamom and our outer space correspondent with DuDa. I am in the process of making up offer letters for others like jane, Dave and MM. Think about it. We could rival The Five with The Enormous.

The big deal for everyone when in Russia, when I was in the game, was Sakhalin Island. Sure Siberia was a "Texan's bet" as we call the wild men of Oil E&P [Like Tillerson, for example, but a damn smart and crafty Texan]. But Sakahlin had every body going to bed dreaming of Krug Crystal champagne and Paul Bocuse celebration dinners at the first gusher. Exxon was so smart they avoided the gold rush and settled on projects no one was paying attention to. Tillerson was the spearhead. I have always thought he was like my old boss Geonuorge Schultz one of rthe finest critical geo-political thinkers of our age. Plus he is an engineer and therefore gets 25 bonus points. If he is not approved, we as a country have missed a huge opportunity to MAGA on the world stage.

MM, Bret Baier was on Rush today to talk about his new book on Eisenhowher, which I just ordered from Bezos, and he talks about the Truman-Eisenhower transition. Back then, as now, I think, the incoming POTUS and 1st Lady drive up to the WH for coffee or tea before going to the Inaugaration together. But the Truman's stayed in the car while the Ike's went ino the WH and drank their coffee/tea. On the ride to the Inaugural, no one said a word in the car. Truman was livid and would never even meet with Ike. Ike gave him a plane to go back to Mizzou which Truman turned down and instead took a train.s Apples far not far from the tree in the Democrat family. From a moderate dem like Harry to a Marxist-Leninist BLMer like Obama. They are Democrats and its in their genes.

Hey, Clarice beat the CLU which has to be first since he has all these machines close by that spit out ticker tape every second....:)

If Manning is released in May does that mean he has to pay out of pocket for his sex change? Another reason to repeal O'Care as soon as possible. Bergdahl next. Zippy has 330 million more eyes to poke before Friday. Can he make it?

So, who is the Dem going to be to try and take on a Navy SEAL during his confirmation hearing? Full disclosure, I have only been to Atlanta once for a conference many, many years ago and I can't even what hotel I stayed in where it was being held. Did not do anything but eat and sleep at the hotel and attend the conference. Flew through Hartsfield many times and even stayed at one or more of the hotels there but that is the extent of my experience with Atlanta. My question is if John Lewis' district can encompass so much of Atlanta and outlying areas if HOR nominal populations are 355 to 415K? And where was Lester Maddox's restaurant? Was it in Atlanta? But thanks anyway for the tour. I currently have Google Maps up trying like hell to follow all you journeys.

Clarice discussing cost plus contracts reminds me of an old admonition in the construction business: "When you go cost plus, even the office cat knows." The only way you can discipline such an arrangement is with a Max Cap and/or Performance fee to Final cost.

As General Honoré would say "[some people here] are stuck on stupid". OL, I got so good at forecasting, I could tell after the first 10-15% of the job's progress, whether we would finish on schedule and to cost or whether we would need a "claims strategy". I you don't approach the job on that basis, you are in deep kimchi.
Toggle Commented yesterday on Happy MLK Day at JustOneMinute
OL is correct. Every large project has a Contract Administrator and department. Meticulous detailed reports on a daily basis of every contractor and su-contractor performance to spec, cost, schedule and quality. Why? Because if you don't have that kind of rigid disciplined management you are an easy target for claims and in so cases, total cost claims. I have experience with one such claim that was over $600 million. Simply based on the number of changes, extra work, schedule delays, reworks etc. that were so numerous that the only way to calculate the damages was the total out of pocket cost to the contractor plus OH and profit. If you start a project of any magnitude without anticipating claims, lawsuits or even state and federal enforcement you are likely to filing for bankruptcy before the end of the job. And don't even get me started on sureties like payment and performance bonds or the little gem of schedule discipline called liquidated damages:)

I stopped watching The Five when Gutfeld was succombed the homely beauty and brains of Bush apologist Dana (I own a dog) Perino. Her lack of height is only distant to her lack of intelligence. So what happens to Juan? Does he replace Larry Rivers on Friday? I became an engineer thanks to Brother Damian at Mt. Assumption Institute who mad Algebra, Math in general and Physics more interesting than the Beatniks. Hard to do but he did and he also had a hellva slap shot from the blue line:)

I know we call the GOP the "stupid party" but you know the Dems are the "really, truly, the stupid party" but the media and other apologists keep them out of the dunce corner. I give you Janet's 5:59 as atypical of their off the rails ignorance. It will get people killed and probably has already.

TBT, You clown. Try to keep up. I posted the Veritas video at Comet at 3:11PM. Your late to the party as usual. No goodies for you. But you're still in my book.

I posted that way before you did TBT. Try to keep up. Just more content for my book which is based on your OCD and asinine personality. Can't wait to fit you into the booth discussing the use of the Butyric acid to disrupt the Deploraball.
