I guess the third time's the charm on this blog post. Keeps getting longer and longer--and more interesting. Bolton is gone, but boy are they going to say lots of good things about him in the New York Times and the Washington Post. Of course a few weeks ago they worried about Bolton the Warmonger & The Face of Evil and all, but that was then and this is now.

Easy peasy. I think Slow Joe or some of his confreres are planning to eliminate the fossil fuel industry. Starting in early January 2021. Problem solved. I've put in an order for a stone axe.

Justice Ginsberg is a tough old girl. But I doubt that she will make it to 2024 (I'm assuming that Trump will win re-election). The megillah that will occur over her replacement is going to be epic.

There are a lot of sand traps in the territory that Jefferson bought from the French--it's called the Louisiana Purchase after all. Sorta like a golf course. Not many water hazards though since it's sorta dry.

Gus, count your blessings that the Brewers got to 7 games in the only World Series they played in. My team is the San Diego Padres--also an expansion franchise that's 50 years old or thereabouts. The Padres went to the World Series twice--lost to the Detroit Tigers 4-1 in either 83 or 84; then got swept 4-0 by the Yankees in 97 or 98. Those things hurt so much that the dates are fuzzy in my mind.

Beto is going to force buyback of all long guns. So when somebody comes into my house to kill me I won't have that shotgun that Slow Joe recommends I shoot out the window. Beto was "re-setting" his campaign. Unfortunately he didn't take his 1/3 horsepower brain into the shop for a rework and reset before he opened his mouth. Bye bye Beto. Don't let the screen door slap ya on the behind as you leave the race.

Threadkiller--I live in a close in suburb of downtown Los Angeles--about 8 miles as the crow flies from City Hall--but up in the brushline on the face of one of the local foothills. I used to joke that I could see my office when I turned at the corner of the cul de sac I live on. I liked to sneak up on my work, and there it was, the office tower where I spent my work day, staring me in the face not 3 seconds after I pulled out of the driveway. As for the vershluggener "high effiency" lights mandated when one remodels, I know where I'd like to stuff the dead light bulbs! They wouldn't shine there either.

Lemme see now. Sacramento says that a sprinkler manufacturer has to design things such that the sprinkler operates at the "design pressure". Then Sacramento says that the "design pressure" must be lowered to some unicorn friendly pressure. Before the unicorns came, my home sprinkler system used 8 sprinkler heads. Now that they have to operate on unicorn friendly pressure, I need 24 sprinkler heads. Both systems ultimately deliver the same amount of water to my lawns. No water is saved but I get to buy 3 times as many sprinkler heads, and each one of them costs $3 extra. I'm dealing with this sort of Sacramento nonsense in my home kitchen (a complete remodel about 10 years ago). California and local codes said I had to remove the perfectly adequate fluorescent and incandescent light bulbs. I had to install the new "environmentally friendly" light bulbs--mainly halogen types. They were supposed to (a) save energy; and (b) have a 10 year service life. BS to that. They fail frequently--average life of a bulb is maybe 8 or 9 months. Then because the contents of the bulb are hazardous, they have to go to special recycling facility. The senile morons in Sacramento strike again!

Cuomo? I wouldn't call him Fredo. Maybe Teenie Weenie, Needle Dick or Little Shmuck. But not Fredo.
Rapinoe supposedly had a hamstring problem. Christen Press subbed in for her and she is no slouch. Got a goal. The US Women's Team (as cocky as Donald Trump) said that their team--starters and reserves --were the two best teams in the World Cup. They just might be right. But it was a hard fought game on both sides, and highly entertaining. I'm wondering just how black and blue Alex Morgan will be when the final game is played. The other teams have been using her for a punching bag. And Tobin Heath has had a magnificent tournament, but she finally wore out today.

Jane, eels are not my cuppa tea. That said I've had eel several times on business trips to The Netherlands. The business guys there like to see a Yank have a"delicacy". You do what you have to do. My English buddy assures me that Londoners love them, although I've not seen eel on the menu in restaurants. But out here in the Little Tokyo part of Los Angeles there used to be (I ate there once in the 80s) a Japanese restaurant that specialized in eel--and had a seven course tasting menu that finished up with eel ice cream. Go figure. I did get through the meal with the help of some Kirin beer.

So Ol Ross thinks that some believe that liberalism is a "seamless garment". Sort of like those "Jesus Britches" that Mormons used to wear under their garments---and that the Ross's of his world chose to denigrate as ridiculous superstitions. Of course modern day liberalism is full of ridiculous superstitions.
I figure that in certain of the Washington D.C. suburbs, there are going to be some high laundry bills. Tough to get those skidmarks off your shorts Brennan and Comey.

Ah Bill Barr. I'm beginning to like the cut of that fellow's jib. And I also appreciate the jibe at Nancy--the puffed up princess from Baghad by the Bay.

Hey, back in the day when Mueller was investigating, he was only looking at dastardly villains who were at the very heart of the Trump campaign, and who were also "besties" with Vladimir Putin. Now that the Mueller investigation proved to be a damp squib, the Feebs were only investigating folks who had no connection at all to the Trump campaign. Times change--and so does the NYT story about all this.
With all that frantic arm and hand movement, Beto could step in and play defense against the Warriors. He's tall . Now he might actually steal a ball or two from Step Curry or Klay Thompson. Dirty player Draymond Green might deck Beto--or at least take a good strong forearm swipe across Beto's eyes. On the other hand Steph, Klay and Draymond might just roll over on the floor in fits of laughter when faced with Beto's "deee-fennnnnsss"!

Having just returned to the States from two weeks in London where my daughter and four year old grandson and almost six year old granddaughter live, I'm enjoying Grandma Steph's reports about her poo painting young grandchild. Fortunately our London based grandchildren have their other grandparents living close by--so that couple gets, or at least got, to deal with the antics of really young kids. But you know, when it comes to poo painting, I doubt that Ariel has anything to teach Mazie Hirono, Sheldon Whitehouse, Spartacus Booker and Da Nang Dick Blumenthal. Those folks know from poo painting--I doubt that they will ever grow up. But granddaughter Ariel will grow out of that phase.

I stopped reading the NYT 15 years ago; but on the other hand, I stopped reading Mad Magazine when I was 16 or 17. Mad Magazine made more sense then (the late 50s) than the NYT does now. But having read the WSJ's report on the Barr testimony hoohah yesterday, I thought I'd break a rule and buy a copy of the NYT on my visit to Starbucks. And I found a nugget in their story. It seems that Team Mueller had prepared Executive Summaries of their report(s), and had given them to Barr along with the 480 page document. Barr--that dastardly villain!!!!!!--chose not to release the Executive Summaries. How could he reject Team Mueller's summaries, no doubt full of nuance and context and codswallop, and instead prepare his own lawyerly summary of what he saw! Barr has some nerve! Sez the various noodniks on Team Mueller. Well the explains some of the hurt feelings on Team Mueller.

Barr knew Mueller for 30 years. Someone noted that it was interesting that when Mueller and Barr had a telephone conversation, Barr did it on a speaker phone with people taking notes. (Which Barr refused to give to Senator Whitehouse.) What does it say about Barr's opinion/knowledge of Mueller that he thinks he needs witnesses and records of those conversation. Mueller is a whining lying weasel--that's what it says, and Barr knows it.

Geez Louise. That bicycle race "winner" is no Louise. I knew Louise. She was a real she---this dude not so much.
Beto is a post turtle as they say in Texas. But on the good side, he is worried about the family's real turtle. So there is that.

What Bernie offered (and I've got some friends--not the sharpest tools in the shed where I keep my friends--who were and are devout Bernie Bros) is a Democrat candidate who was simply crazy. There weren't many, if any, credible assertions of corruption where Bernie was involved. Compare and contrast that with Hillary who was corrupt, crooked, and contemptible.
