Porch, I especially liked "rainbow haired land whales".
Good idea, aaron@1:17
I saw that $5.7 billion had already been spent a couple of years ago. Can't find a more recent number.

On the subject of eggs in the microwave: A coworker (about 30 years ago) decided that he would like a warm hard boiled egg for breakfast. He took a cold (peeled) boiled egg and put it in the microwave. He did 30 seconds at a time, until it was nice and warm to the touch. Then, he took a bite of it. When he came to work, he had blisters above and below his mouth, as well as in and on it. It seems that egg whites are nearly transparent, but the yolk soaks them right up. The egg exploded in his hand and mouth when he bit it. So, be careful heating boiled eggs in your microwave.

Dave (in MA) 04:34 Makes me think, "Pinky, are you thinking what I'm thinking?"

Unmasking of morons is not a pretty sight. Sort of fun, though.

Just a note on CW-II I've lived in rural areas (town population 250), urban areas (population in the millions) and lots of places in between. If a fight comes, the rural areas and small cities will populate the militia, along with whichever urbanites feel the call. The rural folks are very heavily armed, and trained marksmen. A very large percentage have military experience. There are, of course, those who would be on the other side in a battle. They are typically neither well armed nor well trained. Most have no military ecperience. Law enforcement would almost all join the militia and fight against "the government". Military families abound in rural America. Their children, brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, etc would not turn on them nor on others like them. At worst, they would refuse to engage. More likely, they would join with the militia, either individually or en masse. The gang bangers would hardly be likely to join with the folks they have considered their oppressors, and would likely stay out of the main fight. The sides would not be divided geographically, like in CW-I. The entire nation would be at war with those with government power. The war would be brutal, but short-lived. Desertions would start very quickly after commencement of hostilities, and continue until the end of the conflict.
Wow! Jonah and Allapundit both in one post. Maybe next time throw in Glenn Greenwald too.

A lot of Trump's base is concerned about the Kurds (and their way? ;) )

Merry Christmas from a mostly lurker, sometimes commenter. This blog is the only one I follow regularly. There's a reason for that. Thanks, TM. Thanks commenters.

Or maybe it's Rich Uncle Pennybags. One of those.

KK, Occasional-Cortex isn't dissing her party. Her party is not the Democrats. Her party is the Socialists. Doesn't matter if she calls it democratic or not. And her ability to think past the end of her nose is severely limited.

Even CNN is pre-calling it for Hyde-Smith.
Polls say Hyde-Smith will smoke him by 10 or more points.
Thanks for that Ginsburg article, KK.
If they were going to sacrifice someone, I'm fairly glad it was Al Franken. The guy is a pompous ass with way too high an opinion of himself. Plus, they had to cheat a boatload to get him over the line in the first place.
Buckeye, we have mincemeat cookies every Christmas. I already bought the mincemeat. I can hardly wait for the cookies.
