What do you want them to play Ignatz, concussion ball? In Rugby, another Eurotrash and world sport, no pads, no helmets, harder men, more fittness, no concussions. Have a better sport?

Still up watching Justified. One thing about Raylan, he is a man of his word. Told a guy not to move one foot forward or he would shoot him which he did. I like people who don't waffle.

CH, If she wrote that then it proves she is an immature political idiot. But then she will fit in quite comfortably in Congress, and make friends on both sides.

Been up since 0500, so I think I will finish my wine and head to bed as I watch some episode of Justified. Its season one and I think its no. 4 where Rachel takes the lead on the fugitive dentist who did the no-novacaine extraction on some doofus. Elmore Leonard is a genius in character creation.

Randy Levine? Why not Curt Schilling? Better soxs, and he is too outspoken but then he is a Redsox.

I am a realist. Therefore, I cannot believe that in his over 40+ years of being a force in NYC, DJT doesn't have a thick file on Jerry Nadler. In fact, if I serched the FEC database, I could probably find him making contributions to his campaigns. He has also been in many social functions with Nadler present. As a non-drinker he has most likely seen, and heard that asshole say crap that is at least embarrassing if not something ethically questoining. I am not worried one bit by Nadler, nor Schiff. Both are in charge but out classed when it comes to the Donald. I can't wait for his tweets on both those pompous assholes.

Whoa! What a breeze that was, scrolling through 8 hours of threads. We, that would be me and the 3 beagles, are back in our Florida domicile. Cold as hell, around 46F, a slight ocean breeze, but the ocean looks very calm, and golf course terrific. Bill Krystol is a certified jerk, and delusional relative of his great father Irving. Has there been a DNA on him yet? The reason kids in the Academies are Heroes is simple jack ass, no other football player in America, when he graduates, will voluntarily put his life on the line for minimum 5 years. I have no idea where these so called intellects, geniuses, and pundits get their education but it is not from living the life of heroes. Go Navy, Beat Army (next year, and we will be there).

While here, let me note that May is in big doo-doo with her own ministers on her Brexit-lite strategy. Now they want to delay the vote until next week. Boris, being Boris, wants to be steely, and do a "charge-the-trenches" type of deal. The EU may turn to Martin Selmyar, the German "monster" of the EU bureaucracy, who promises to do to the Brits what Hitler was unable to do. The Euro is falling like a rock, Italy is on the verge of its own Exit, and the Easter bloc is getting a little fed up. The whole EU dream is turning into a nightmare, and when they wake up, there may not be one any longer.

rse, He got a seat on the return leg. He said the leg coming down was full of train hoppers but he liked the Cafe car since he didn't have far to go for food and drink:) He's a world traveler, and handles situations much better than I would have at his age.

While I am waiting for B'fast, Your Latin Phrase of the Day: Cum catapultae proscriptae erunt tum soli proscripti catapultas habebunt. Gentlejim has heard this before many times but with subjects and objects:)

rse, Mean't to add, Jamnagar is the largest refinery in the world at 1.240 mil/bbl/day.

I had never heard of ambani. rse, You wouldn't have if you are not in the industrial and oil side of India. We designed and built their Jamnagar Refinery, in Gujarat, up on the far NW side of India. They are big, big, big into oil and gas. The old man would come to London (actually he lived there most of the time) with his entourage of engineers, footman, and other lackeys to our project meetings. Five of our guys, and 35 of theirs. It's an Indian thing:) anonamom, Did you lose power? Looks like Raleigh is good. Rain has turned it all to slush. I am on the east side, in a hotel. 95 was a slog last night, but 85 coming down to US1 was clear until about 25 miles out of the US1 intersection. After that, no problemo! Was supposed to arrive here at 4:30, but instead it was 6:30. Hope you did not get plastered where you are. Charlotte area, right? Can't wait until 7 when breakfast opens up, then go get the beagles, for our drive down to Florida.

Howdy, from Raleigh, NC or the near environs. Left Philly at 0930 after putting Frederick in a cab for the train station, and made it here at 1830hrs after losing 2 hours driving through a blizzard on 95 and 85. Got to walk the beagles only once during that time. Counted at least 20 cars down in the ditches of the median or off the road all with their lights in the wrong direction (so did donuts on the ice). Even the semis were being careful. Finally, got the dogs in the kennel, to the hotel. Got a bite to eat and 2 martinis watching the end of the Eagles v. Boys game. How about that ending:) Now tomorrow, more of the same but rain on the way down to Florida. You all be good. Slaap lekker, tot morgen!

pagar, 7.5 million job opening last I saw. A lot of it, if not most high tech, engineering or skilled trades. Would we rather follow the Chamber of Horrors path, and lobby for illegales, or trained and educated Irish, with a 100% literacy rate? YMMV.

Bravo Zulu, Clarice, on today’s very good summary of how to spend $30mil on nothing. Hell Congress does the same thing every year on millions of nothing’s. Forgot to mention last night in my after action report on The Game: No NeverTrumpers in the Stadium yesterday. Huge roars and from the cadets and middies also. Tada. Off soon for Raleigh then Florida.

Before we retire from another nice dinner at Ruth's Chris' in our hotel, I need to mention that Frederick almost had a close encounter with Trump. Frederick had gone down to another fan shop to find a particular navy shirt he wanted. When he got back on the elevator, the secret service came on and evecuated the existing passengers, including Frederick. He had to wait about ten feet away when Trump came by with his entourage and got on the elevator. Nary a nod or thank you to Frederick for the inconvienece but at least he saw him. Off to slumberland, slaap lekker, tot morgen. Up early. Off to Raleigh with the Beagles tomorrow. They are to get snow.

Without having read the full thread, we are back from The Game. Navy gave it all but not good enough. Close in a way but really not in another way. Last year we had snow but it wasn't as cold as today. Steady northerly breeze into our eastern side of the stadium. Now we are off to Ruth's Chris for a nice Delmonico, a Wet Goose martini (for me, not Frederick) and in bed. Have to pick the dogs up early tomorrow in order to make Raleigh in time to board them over-night there. And its supposed to get 1-3 inches of global warming. Too-da-loo!

It seems to me that as the "gilet Jaunes" picks up in Belgium, Netherlands, et. al. The vote for Brexit against the May Compromise is now a given. The EU is showing everyone that you don't want to live them, or their neighbor.

AOC will sooner than later out herself, in the eyes of the left, as batshit crazy and a stain on their progressive campaign. She can't help herself. She has no self-awareness that can keep her yap shut and out of the spotlight. I don't think she will become a sympathy target but rather a blue on blue victim. Once she starts (perhaps has already) embarrassing Pelosi, she will get a talking to, and you will not hear from her again unless it is to agree with the left's agenda.

KK, Do you ever sleep? Or, are you back east or in Europe? James D, In Europe you get the Sunday Times Xword in the Saturday edition of the Internation Herald Tribune. If I had to fly back to SF on a Saturday or Sunday for meetings the next week, I would do it on the plane, then blow my friends mind by doing the "real" Times Magazine Xword in 5 minutes of less, and in ink! Morning tribe. Go Navy, Beat Army.
Great dinner with Frederick at Ruth Chris' tonight. Slaap Lekker, tot morgen. Go Navy, Beat Army!
My grandmother (mother's side) worked for JFK's Grandfather, "Honey Fitz" Fitzgerald when he was the Mayor of Boston. She was a wee Irish lady from Cape Breton Highlands in Nova Scotia. Around Lake Ainslie. Met her husband, a painter from Tennessee who was working in Boston. Married him, left the Fitzgeralds and moved down to Knoxville, where my Mother, her 4 sisters and brothers were born. So, unlike Beto, I have more Kennedy blood by fingerprints, osmosis, inhalation and haircomb residue that he has.
Was it before or after his stint as Romney bat-man? All I know is that plagerising perv named Old Joe made him look like a kid who got caught stealing candy from the local store. Dan Crenshaw has more vision out of his one good eye than Ryan never had. [cuing maryrose:]
anonamom, Of course they do. They are the anchors. Men are ballast. So, he is on the Acela in Business Class, and can't find a seat but in the Cafe. I text him to tell the conductor he needs a seat. Fully paid ticket. Comes back to me that there are a lot of train hoppers. I tell him screw the hoppers make the conductor find you the seat we paid for. Amtrak is a government subsidy operation, and acting like it.
