The Irish sure have a way with words…

Missteps during Mike Pence’s visit to Ireland that included controversial praise of the British prime minister, Boris Johnson, have led to accusations of betrayal and “humiliation”.

One Irish Times columnist concluded that the vice-president, a “much-anticipated visitor”, turned out to have “shat on the … carpet”.

I laid out here a couple of weeks ago the optimum winning strategy. It runs counter to what many people want to believe. But Monty Hall would like it because it’s rather straightforward probability.

I don’t think that Nate quite gets that it’s Captain Queeg who is keeping this story going long after most people would have moved on. Unless he thinks that the media should just stop giving a damn about Donny’s tweets, which I agree would be the right thing to do and would dry him absolutely bonkers. BUT so long as we have the POTUS losing his farking mind in real-time, it’s a story that the media should be giving as much attention as…say…a tan suit or the price of arugula.

re: #26 Belafon

If the UK hasn’t left the EU by October 31st (the current leaving date), then Leavers will almost certainly switch their support to Farage’s Brexit Party in the hope that he can do it, seeing as (presumably), the Tories can’t do it.

And that’s why PM Johnson is so desperate to have an election before the 31st because if he doesn’t get one, there’s a good chance the Tories will have their asses handed to them after that date. And there’s a good chance as well at that point that Labour may squeak in to 10 Downing Street and seeing as the Tories (and the British right-wing press) have portrayed Jeremy Corbyn as the second coming of Mao Zedong, that’s something Boris and his party would much rather not happen.

Putin must love this story.

Upgrades Needed For Sustained F-22 Operations During A Crisis In Europe Axed For Border Wall
The Air Force had planned to award contracts for the infrastructure improvements, including a specialized repair facility, next year.

The Pentagon says it will defer building various facilities to support rotating deployments of F-22 Raptors to Germany as part of a larger reallocation of military funds to support wall construction along the United States’ southwestern border with Mexico. Delaying the planned work, which included setting up a dedicated repair center that would be able to maintain the composite structures, exotic coatings, and other elements of the stealth fighter’s sensitive radar-absorbing skin, could have significant impacts on the Air Force’s ability to operate these jets for sustained periods in the region during a crisis.

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area - Dorian is expected to continue it’s run up the Eastern Seaboard, and we’ll see some rain and wind here, but nothing like what they’re seeing in Alabama the Carolinas, where they’ve got coastal flooding, inland flooding, power outages, tornadoes, and wind damage. There are casualties in the US, on top of the toll in the Bahamas.

And Trump still will not let this go. He ignores what the storm is doing and expected to do for the rest of the weekend, while claiming he was right and browbeat anyone who doesn’t agree with him. It’s pathological.

Meanwhile, Trump has moved billions of dollars earmarked for DOD construction projects around the world to build his boondoggle wall. That means money for base housing, fire houses, and infrastructure meant to improve US warfighting capabilities overseas, are not getting done. Trump weakens our defense and national security and the GOP remains silent.

The GOP remains silent over everything Trump is doing to damage our security and even the economy.

The jobs report was much worse than expected, and the slowdown in the economy is taking its toll. Trump’s idiotic trade war is dragging on the economy, and the debt is exploding because of the tax scam that didn’t deliver the growth the GOP/Trump needed to claim that it was self sustaining. So of course the GOP targets SS/Medicaid/Medicare as the reason for the debt, when it’s entirely due to tax cuts that do not improve economic growth.

Oh, and the June and July figures were revised even lower than the last time the jobs report was published. The labor participation rate has increased though… and expect the markets will fixate on that, rather than the overall trend we’re seeing.

NO SMOCKING GUN!  Sep 6, 2019 • 6:31:26am

Only 130k jobs created in August, and the numbers for the prior two months were revised down 20k, so we are on pace for the lowest level of job creation since 2011. However the prime age employment ratio did hit 80.0, its highest level since 2008, so slow job growth may reflect a lack of demand for jobs at current wages. The increase in average wages in August was higher (though still only 3.2% over the last 12 months), so this may indicate that employers are finally feeling pressure to offer higher pay to secure workers.

I am of similar age to your mom & much prefer giving gifts to receiving same - but what I love & get given often is a fine china coffee mug. I also love small decorative pieces that I would never buy for myself but love to have - glass figures, decorative plates. Nothing large (this is the age of downsizing, not accumulating). Getting a gift where you know someone has searched for that special something is a delight.

The other gift I was given 10 years ago was a kindle - absolutely couldn’t be without it now. I did, however have the skills to download previews/books from my computer or the kindle (I personally find it easier to search for books on the computer, not the kindle).

Lamesa man charged with making terroristic threats, threatening to shoot up Midland Walmart

Thursday afternoon, rumors were circulating that someone was coming to Midland from Lamesa to shoot up a Walmart.

The Department of Public Safety told CBS7 at the time it was a “hoax” and Midland Police wrote on Facebook that they didn’t have any substantiated reports.

However, the Midland County Sheriff’s Office said the man they arrested had an AR-style rifle in his car when they caught him. 28-year-old Isaac Rodriquez of Lamesa has been charged with making terroristic threats.

Authorities said they got a tip from one of Rodriguez’s co-workers Wednesday evening who heard Rodriguez say he planned to shoot up a Midland Walmart.

Deputies detained Rodriquez at his workplace in Midland around 2 p.m. Thursday.

I really like the way that Trump thinks he is entitled an apology for how he perceives his coverage in the news.

That is something I recall from no other President, ever.

Harry Truman was very angry about the Washington Post’s coverage of his daughter. To retaliate… he cancelled his subscription.

He’s not wrong. The GOP is doing everything they can to protect Trump from even the weakest opposition within the party:

Yeah, it’s self serving for Walsh to complain that the GOP is moving to stop primary challenges to Trump, but Trump is so weak right now that if he didn’t, he’d likely be embarrassed. The GOP fears elections to the point that they will suppress them to maintain power. Trump more than anyone else.

Margaret Truman Daniel

At the beginning of her career, critical reviews of Truman’s singing were positive or diplomatic in tone, with one later reviewer speculating that negative opinions were held back out of deference for her father as a current sitting United States President. This practice was broken in 1950 when Washington Post music critic Paul Hume wrote that Truman was “extremely attractive on the stage… [but] cannot sing very well. She is flat a good deal of the time. And still cannot sing with anything approaching professional finish.” The review angered President Truman who wrote to Hume, “Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!”

Let’s be honest — if Trump expressed such inflammatory rhetoric toward a member of the media, we would be excoriating him for threatening the free press. There was definitely a time when the MSM was laudatory to President and their family, and concealed their failings (both health-wise and behavioral). The movie “The Post” made direct reference to those times and the deference the media paid to the President.

CEO’s continue to expect this deference from their employees and many companies will dismiss those who do not conform in public though they often are tolerant of internal criticism. Trump expects this treatment throughout the nation and seems flustered that he isn’t accorded this respect — as usual forgetting how he treated his predecessor.

Jaz Coleman is one of my favorite performers. I’m tempted to make that drive that I hate.

Hey now. No need to be insulting Josef Stalin like that.

Unlike Mitch, though, Stalin could actually get things done even if his methods were a bit, er, extreme. For instance, right after the German invasion, production of badly needed warplanes was running slow. Stalin wrote to the factory manager:

“You have let down our country and our Red Army. You have the nerve not to manufacture IL-2s until now. Our Red Army now needs IL-2 aircraft like the air it breathes, like the bread it eats. Shenkman produces one IL-2 a day and Tretyakov builds one or two MiG-3s daily. It is a mockery of our country and the Red Army. I ask you not to try the government’s patience, and demand that you manufacture more ILs. This is my final warning.”

EEK! Production doubled almost immediately.

True: the Iranian-tanker piracy/bribe story wasn’t completely ignored in the media, but was decidedly back-burnered. In favor of more salient news stories like Sharpiegate. Of course, since the stupid extortion attempt was directed at one of the Administration’s Designated Boogeyman Villains (Iran), popular/media outrage was going to be muted, in any case….

To be fair, when we find coke and beer cans along our street (named for ‘Bama) it is very upsetting. It’s usually a Saturday morning after the young hoodlums have been out sparking.

Trump is still pushing this tiresome thing. Why? Because he’s pathological and a sociopath who can never admit being wrong about anything, even as the Birmingham NWS explicitly stated as much.

That should have ended the discussion, but Trump can’t be wrong. He can only be wronged, and he attacks anyone who identifies his wrongdoing.

So, that’s where we are today. Everything he’s posted since about Alabama has been to the exclusion of where Dorian is actually headed, actually impacting, and the damage it’s done across the Southeastern US, let alone Bahamas.

This is about Trump and the lies (and those around him who lie for him and enable him). The Sharpie incident is just more proof he’s unfit for office.

re: #57 NO SMOCKING GUN!

Only 130k jobs created in August, and the numbers for the prior two months were revised down 20k, so we are on pace for the lowest level of job creation since 2011. However the prime age employment ratio did hit 80.0, its highest level since 2008, so slow job growth may reflect a lack of demand for jobs at current wages. The increase in average wages in August was higher (though still only 3.2% over the last 12 months), so this may indicate that employers are finally feeling pressure to offer higher pay to secure workers.

Oh my…

A pastor’s wife nearly shot another pastor’s wife outside of a West Virginia church, all because of a fight that escalated over one husband’s T-shirt.

And with that, someone just won West Virginia Christian Bingo.

We never actually learn what the root of this conflict is, though all sides were quick to reject the theory that an affair was involved

It didn’t help that Toney had a permit to carry a concealed weapon (which may now be revoked). We also have no clue if they reconciled their differences. So for all we know, if one of the guys wears the wrong headband, this fight will be taken to the next level. Maybe Jesus can be the referee.
