This guest tonight is a great storyteller. I've really enjoyed the show. Heather has stayed quiet as to not interrupt his flow and hasn't yet taken phone calls. Which can also turn the show into a slog. Great show, Paul. And good job, Heather, keeping a low profile

Will they blame Hillary, Obama or Soros ?

Hey Z. I just saw you were in first place. Do you automatically pick up Foles or get to 're-select or just out of luck?

Back on topic: I'm sure all three will be to blame. They always are. Have you ever seen such a bunch of whiny "winners"?

Wooohooo the net is no longer neutrality! Such a disaster, we’re going to have to go back to the dark ages now, before net neutrality. You know, back when the net exploded from nothing and basically took over the world, all with no fake net neutrality.


Check in with me in a year. On second thought nm. I don't want to see you crying about "losin muh freedoms"

U.S. Federal Communications Commission set to reverse net neutrality rules - Reuters

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission is expected on Thursday to rescind rules that were aimed at ensuring a free and open internet, as protesters gathered online and in front of FCC headquarters to oppose the change.

Commission Chairman Ajit Pai's proposal marks a victory for big internet service providers such as AT&T Inc, Comcast Corp and Verizon Communications Inc that opposed the regulations - popularly known as net neutrality rules - and gives them sweeping powers to decide what web content consumers can access.

Or text NET to 384-387 to contact Congress and stop the FCC.

That is the problem with many people, especially the Left, they have no sense of history. Oh, that was 1972!" Who cares? Human nature doesn't change, much. One can look to history to at least potentially see possible futures or what went right, or wrong, back then and attempt to learn from it. Unless it is "Hitler Hitler Hitler" the Left ignores it (though their controllers certainly don't.) They are well aware of history and how best to take down a country, society, and undermine value systems and culture.

DC is too big and the bureaucracy and assorted companies, and people, that live off the tax-payer is too large. It is the swamp.I don't care about Democracy, per se, at a Federal level as it was never intended to operate that way but devolving more power to the people, individuals, towns, cities, counties, States, etc. Where an individuals vote actually matters and you actually have an attempt to influence things on a daily level. Not everything needs to be a "Federal Case" and not everything needs to be mandated by some top-down command-and-control bureaucracy thousands of miles away.

Will Trump be able to "drain the swamp?" Doubtful, a President can only do so much and when you have most in both major political Parties who benefit directly from DC largesse it is a hard sell. When you have career bureaucrats, and even some political, with longterm agendas and desire for war and profiteering it is hard for any one person to change the direction of such a large ship. But at least he talked about the real problems and is doing some good things. Hillary wouldn't been a disaster as there is no government program, agency, or policy she is against. No war that looks unpleasant. And no borders, so you don't even, technically, HAVE a country.

Ok. Certainly not what I thought. Thanks for enlightening me. But my History profs will be very disappointed in me

The five richest counties in the U.S. adjoin the District  of Columbia and they all vote Democrat.  Enough said.

Now that is very enlightening

The Viking franchise and the NFL should be sued for racism. I demand all sports teams stop using racist sports teams like Vikings, Goths, Huns, Patriots, etc. Extremely offensive. Obviously the biggest one that needs to pay out in some kind of reparations is the "Fighting Irish," which for decades has stereotyped an ethnic group.

And Redskins. But what about the animals? They deserve some dignity. Lions, Bears, Dolphins, assorted avians. And I find Rams especially sexist

Edit: how about Drunken Irish. That's not racist

I hope they enjoy their vodka with the bonus: fake news!
By the way government agents, judges, bureacrats are people so expected to have political, and other, opinions. But they shouldn't let it influence their work or opinion, especially in a place like the FBI. There is so much wrong with the FBI itself that when it gets political (Hoover) and the current folks there. They, like most of the Federal government including the President, have so much power but, unlike the President (so far) the bureaucracy, underlings, and minions can spend long careers, even whole careers in their agencies. Especially the supposed "non-political."  Which is why regardless of the President it is hard to stop policy, wars, and general direction. If Foggy Bottom, the CIA, FBI etc have political agendas it is hard to turn them around. It is also human nature to recoil against someone, or some group, who says "drain the swamp" when you depend on that "swamp" for your livelihood or think it is paradise, not a swamp. I still have to laugh though how now you Lefties love the FBI, CIA, wars, etc! How quickly opinions change based on one President!

Hoover died in '72. I imagine a little irrelevant now. Kind of like Hillary.  I'm not sure what wars I am supposed to love. I think the FBI and CIA are necessary institutions. Like the military. A lot of dangerous people here and abroad. But I believe we need to have appropriate checks and balances to stop any institution or person from having too much power. No rubber stamping.

Speaking of swamp draining. I've been wondering for quite awhile what it exactly refers to.  I assumed that it meant keeping monied interests from wielding undue influence over our democratic process. Obviously that is an incorrect assumption. Can you enlighten me on the subject?

Your lack of understanding of current developments is astonishing.  The e mails weren’t given to the Joint Oversight Committee until, after several requests, DOJ was threatened with a contempt citation.  The DOJ Inspector General was the one who discovered them, not Mueller.  It has been shown beyond question that upper levels of DOJ and FBI were riddled with corrupt leftist partisans.  You really should try to read things that don’t begin with “once upon a time.”

Here’s something that will bring you up to date.  Morris has been consistently correct in his analysis.

Oh sure. Dick Morris. He doesn't have any political axe to grind

Interestingly even the NYTimes is having to admit the bias of the FBI!
I'm sure the usual Lefties will call it fake news though.

The FBI? Two agents. One demoted the other quit/fired. We don't hide behind the "fake news" excuse for anything we dont like. We can handle the truth. Like the fact that the term Fake News was initially used to describe bogus news articles planted by Russian agents. Don't you know every time you say "Fake News" a Russian hacker gets a bonus?

But I don't get what Trump News State Propaganda ... er ... Hannity and Fox News - and now some Trump sycophants in the House are whining about. And of course, you gentlemen

The texts in question were discovered because of the investigation and Mueller demoted Peter off the investigation to the Seventh Circle of Hell, i.e. Human Resources back last summer.
 And Lisa either quit or was fired from the FBI. As far "as numerous conflicts of interests", I haven't heard any specifics just generalization.

Can't be some people are getting nervous about the potential findings of the Russia probe and trying to make up some trumped up charges - get it? Trumped up charges? - to stop the investigation so as to stifle the truth?

Doesn't take a Special Counsel investigation to know these are true words:

Two FBI officials who would later be assigned to the special counsel’s investigation into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign described him as an “idiot” and “loathsome human” in a series of text messages last year, according to copies released on Tuesday. One said in an election night text that the prospect of a Trump victory was “terrifying”.

Peter Strzok, an FBI counterintelligence agent, was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team earlier this year following the discovery of text messages exchanged with Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer.

Hey, USA Today, don't be shy. Tell us what you really think ...

Will Trump's lows ever hit rock bottom?

... A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a whore is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes of George W. Bush. 

This isn’t about the policy differences we have with all presidents or our disappointment in some of their decisions. Obama and Bush both failed in many ways. They broke promises and told untruths, but the basic decency of each man was never in doubt. 

Donald Trump, the man, on the other hand, is uniquely awful. His sickening behavior is corrosive to the enterprise of a shared governance based on common values and the consent of the governed...

Net neutrality repeal means you're going to hate your cable company even more
23 hrs ago

The Internet as we have always known it is an open platform for content, speech and information. Now the FCC is set to vote Thursday on a proposal by Republican Chairman Ajit Pai to obliterate the rules that keep it that way — and in their place, he offers almost nothing. He’ll wrest control of the Internet from the American people and hand it over to existing Internet service providers (ISPs) like Comcast, AT&T and Verizon, empowering them to generate new profits by restricting access.

Under Pai’s plan, ISPs can charge web companies for “fast lanes,” holding those who can pay ransom for better service and leaving little guys who can’t pay in the dust. Meanwhile, none of that money will be passed on to consumers in the form of lower rates. If anything, your rates are likely to increase.  As recently as last week, Comcast, the largest cable-ISP in the country, quietly dropped its promise not to charge for Internet fast lanes. 

When the Internet came along it broke the Cable business model wide open. Suddenly, viewers at home saw an explosion of creative new content and voted with their clicks, not their wallets. Essential to the Internet’s growth was net neutrality: All (legal) traffic flowed at the same speed over the network, regardless of ownership or content.

No one wanted to see the big companies turn the Internet into the consolidated high-walled cable industry. So over two decades as the Internet grew up, the FCC made sure that it was protecting net neutrality principles. Republicans and Democrats agreed that some form of cop on the beat was needed to keep the companies in line and the Internet open. Until now.

Once Pai goes through with his plan to gut net neutrality, there is little anyone can do right now to stop the cable-ization of the Internet. And soon we’ll all be sighing: "Once upon a time, the Internet was seen as the insurgent 'outlaw' of 21st century media…"

Sorry to report the Thomas Fire is still burning and heading to Santa Barbara. No new fires  in San Diego but supposed to reach 80 degrees and humidity is very low so fire danger persists

Updated 51 mins ago
FILLMORE, Calif. (KABC) -- The Thomas Fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties expanded by 2,500 acres overnight as the unrelenting blaze entered its ninth day Tuesday.

Winds pushed the fire west overnight, increasing its total area to 234,200 acres. Fire officials said the blaze is making its way further into Santa Barbara County, threatening the communities of Carpenteria, Summerland, Montecito and surrounding areas.

TL, you must know some La Raza guys who could gut Swishy like a fish, no?

Swishy who?

Question for the forum: Do your states allow left turns onto a one way from a red light if no traffic is oncoming? Because I can do that in Michigan.

Yes. California loves people to go left

Frikkin Canadians are probably too polite to ever question a red light.

Never mind. I got my answer from an expat in Mexico.

BTW - the answer is yes. Unless prohibited by a sign or a moose in a crosswalk. Or on the Isle of Montreal were it is illegal because everyone is smoking in the crosswalk.

Yeah. The Fake French. I bet they all wear scarves and berets and have bad attitudes, too

24 does that even mean lol

Broadcasting from Australia? Or while doing a headstand? Doesn't sound interesting. Even if they are broadcasting upside down. Too bad after so long of a drought of shows

i am not unwell lol working again and too much yet not enough..hope things are good for you too...

Can't complain, t. Thanks. Congratulations on your job? I guess?

That was another crazy game. Flacco was like, "What? The game's over?"  Quite a football day

Eagles win(will never hear the end of it around these parts) but may have lost Wentz for like..a year

Great game. Even if I did end up rooting for the Rams. Guess I can't help cheering on my homeboyz. Yeah, really too bad about Wentz. Although Foles did great it might hurt Philly's chances going forward

Ok. Diving in to SNF. I wonder if it will be as brutal as the Steelers Bengals game last week

btw. Nice to run into you t. Been awhile. Hope you're doing adequate. May Cthulhu's blessings be upon you. But not its teeth

After Dallas swamped Giants at the very end, I got to see the final few minutes of the Packers v. Browns. Amazingly the Browns almost won one but still in the running for first draft pick. Hundley may grow up to be a great quarterback someday. Holding the line for Aaron's comeback

Now on to Eagles v. Rams game. I'm kinda torn on who to root for

Are you okay?

I am, Jojo, thanks. Today I could see the smoke coming up from a fire in the hills in the northeast quite a distance away.  And the wind is blowing it due west into the ocean. Less wind last couple of days and many of the fires are beginning to be contained. So much damage and so many homes destroyed. Hope this particular catastrophe for so many people is coming to an end.

At the next meeting I will talk to our HOA about rosin roofs  ;)
