The China impasse is not at all surprising. They sent over a hard liner to rein in their chief negotiator specifically because the Emperor wants to ratchet the trade war up. They are banking on a new administration in 2020. I have a real fear that the Establishment is going to do their best to tank the economy in any way they can this Fall. They are evil and out solely for their own interests. The Chinese are both subtle and brutal and probably think they have the upper hand. Thing is, we could bring them to their knees economically if we have to and cut off their oil. Let the Iranians play the bad guys.All of those surface warships would be in deep moo goo gai pan with no propulsion. Sort of leaves them hanging out to dry. Our Left is doubling down on the stupid and may end up irrelevanting itself the way things are going. Trump just Jedi mind f'ed them again. The visions of little Hitlers dancing in their heads and their spewing hate as they claim peaceful intentions are turning off a vast majority. Their leaders are clapping seals hanging on every lie the NY Times or Post or MSNBC promulgates. The Epstein case is going to hit that elite hard, methinks. Remember, his procurer has turned state's witness. She probably witnessed Wet Willie and Prince Andy cavorting with 16 year olds. The Queen may have to bring back the headsman for him this time. They are squealing like pigs to the slaughter. let's hope it is so.

"They’re the reason there are directions on a shampoo bottle, & we should ignore them." - classic Trump. I wish people would take his advice. I m reminded of the tulip mania described by Kindelberger when thinking of the Democrats. It is a combination of dissociative thinking and mania that keeps them going. There simply is no logic or pretense of veracity.A little bit of Munchausen, a dab of the Emperor Norton, a large pinch of Cultural Revolution. The House violates its own rules of decorum in order to condemn the President for his decorum. We'll be hitting the dog days soon enough. I think I'll be stocking up on popcorn because it will inevitably get sillier.
Ocasio-Castro sounds like Betty Boop on LSD. They other three are 2 baggers. All of them fall into the batshit crazy spectrum.
Funny how the crypto-leftists are always able to find someone to object to the pledge or God Bless America or any one of a thousand patriotic actions. It really is amazing the hatred for our country they have. I have a feeling that tonight will be interesting. They can't help themselves. They say ever more outrageous things every day. Watching them play the victim card will be entertaining. Maybe they can have a wall of Antifas behind them to show solidarity. Nancy must be melting down.

Speaking of appliances, we bought a whole suite of them when we moved to the Canyon 5 years ago. Thermador range, dishwasher and fridge. Electrolux washer & dryer. Luckily we have home warranty. The oven is down because of a circuit board failure. The ice maker has broken twice, The dishwasher had a circuit board replaced an the washer has had 2 major repairs. The down time has been terrible, but you learn to limp along. Basically it has all been designed for the lowest possible manufacturing cost with little emphasis on long term reliability. The thing about the old stuff is that there wasn't much to go wrong. Motors and pumps last forever. but that Chinese circuit board that someone saved $2 on because they were a good supply chain manager puts the consumer out and not the company because it inevitably fails just past the warranty date. I wonder if there is a market for medium related electronic components. The hi-rel stuff is typically used for the military or harsh use. But the consumer stuff that used to be built pretty well is now not very good quality. The repair guy, my favorite Ukrainian, basically told me I should buy a real, analog, commercial range. That's what the professionals use. After a very mediocre GE range we thought the Thermidor was movin' on up., but in reality while it has better temperature uniformity that's about it.

We have a real problem with anti-vaxxers here in California. I decided to go to the farmer's market near UC Irvine this morning an there were a couple of hundred of them completely misrepresenting the medicine behind their claims. They were basically a lot of soccer moms and what we call in the mental health bidness transitional aged youths. Well meaning, but clueless. My stepson got his MMR or whatever it is when he was 2 over 25 years ago and is autistic. But I also believe there is a genetic predisposition that one of the vaccines may set off. But all of the many studies are conclusive, so how does one argue with the science? When I say the whole world is going crazy, maybe there is some truth to that.

The protesters at the detention facilities should take another tack if they want to really change hearts and minds. For every illegal released into the country, one protester should emigrate too Guatemala. That's only fair, amirite??

A lot of the kids they traffic are runaways or barely there's. The same thing as pimps and their women, except Epstein was able to pick the cream of the crop. What a pathetic, evil man.

Great news. Got an e mail this morning from the World Health Organization's Mental Health sub-group. My abstract on a public health model for prevention and early intervention has been accepted for the world's most prestigious mental health congress. Sort of like playing Carnegie Hall. Wow. Just wow.

If you really want to frive the dems nuts, remind them that there is already a formula for illegal immigrants and the census. It's called the 3/5th's rule and was a centerpiece of their platform until the 1930's.

Even the WaPo had an article on how Trump did well last night. Mark Thiessen wrote it, but still, they actually published something that wasn't pure garbage. Another Jedi mind trick by Trump.

Happy 4th to all! Spent the better part of the day down at our 1873 schoolyard cooking weenies after our very down home parade down the canyon. It was interesting that we had a Fire Authority Wildfire truck and a Forest Service truck drive to the end of the parade route and then take off immediately to do building checks after the earthquake. They were back pretty quick, though. We're 150-200 miles from the epicenter.

Arte Johnson had a very interesting life! Just had a Ukrainian service tech in to look at the frickin' Thermador stove. 5 years old and 3 major failures. This time it is the control board for the oven. Very interesting take from a 30 year immigrant. Hates socialists and socialism. Totally American except for his heavy accent. Typical of first generation immigrants with the exception of illegals. They may root for their home country's teams in the sports bars, but they are behind the USA every time, unlike those Mexican and Central American assholes who go to our US soccer games.

One of the fun things about London was the military parades and demonstrations and flyovers and whatever. Not having our military represented on the 4th of July is beyond absurd. We're not the Russians who parade tanks and missiles and hawt young female passport control officers in tight skirts through Red Square every May 8 or the Emperor Xi with his frickin' naval revue dressed up in some weird cameo uniform. It's a couple of tanks and the Left are having heart attacks. The headlines are absurd. "How to Move Tanks to Mall", "Very Large Scary Nazi Trumpist Warmonger Killing Machines in DC to overthrow Pelosi". By the way, is Xi LBGTQ? With a name like that, who knows?

Trump knows how to suck the air out of the dem's room every time. Rally on MuellerDay. A goodly portion of the idiocracy will have to be in South Carolina. Clarice, that poem is uh. pretty harsh. Great rhyming, but cannibals along the river were not a thing in the Congo as far as I know. Screaming tribesmen, yes. But I think the whole missionary stew was debunked, wasn't it? Long pig was, on the other hand, a South Seas delicacy.

Am a bit concerned about this Rooshian submarine accident. Pence called back; Russian Cabinet meeting; EU Defense Committee all meeting. WTF? A "source" said we'll know in 2 weeks. What does that mean?

Was at the post office yesterday and a neighbor actually had his own dolly and was carrying 10-12 Amazon/mail order packages he had received. His wife's shopping. It just goes to show how completely screwed up the USPS is. Amazon has semis going all over California now, but they use the Post Office because it's cheaper. Why? Why is it that offshore merchants pay US standard rates for postage? Not only is it mismanaged, but it is also a pit of cronyism and favor.

The first transatlantic nonstop was by Alcock & Brown from St John's, Newfoundland to Clifden, County Galway, Cionnemara, Ireland. Our family's ancestral village is just a few miles from where they chase landed, but they made it.
