In video 2, I captured a rare and treasured image of the complete red t-shirt and shorts outfit.  (Right next to a red Coke Machine, bwahahahaha)

So, it looks like he has a pair of glasses with both temples... he should have gone with the duct tape look.

How are the plans on opening coal mines, steel plants and the healthcare coming along? Independent data says by 2026 23 million more will be without healthcare than now. And those who have, will be paying at least 300% more than now, some as much as 500%.

Not true. That independent data you cite counts 19 million that do nof have insurance today.

Minor spoilers

I started watching this and just finished up the third season. Season 4 should be on Netflix next week.

I liked parts of it, especially when they were both on earth and in space. Then it started to lose me. Seemed like they did a mash up of survivor, lost, games of thrones and mad max coupled with just about every other apocalyptic story line that had been done somewhere else.

Looking forward to season 4, but more interested in Season 5 which won't air until 2018.

Lots of holes in the storyline but it has decent scenery and casting. Kind of dark and violent at times.

100 lbs/yr is about 9 lbs/month is about 2 lbs/wk is 64 ounces per week is about 9 ounces per day.  Noodles, pasta, crackers, bread, buns, pizza crust, flour tortillas, prepared foods, soups, gravies, modifier food starch, granola bars, fiber bars...

I actually did some research. A bushel weighs 60 pounds and if you mill whole wheat, you get 60 pounds of flour but you only get 40 pounds of white flour. So about 2/3. I guess 65 pounds of white flour might be in some people's diet when you consider breakfast cereal.

As far as me, I eat about 20 tortillas per month and that is about all the flour I get. I used to eat bread but gave it up. I tried cutting out gluten, realized it didn't affect me (except I did lose weight)  and only recently added back in tortillas.

I will keep trying to hold the average down for y'all. I figure my intake is less than 15 pounds per year.

(f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. [bold mine] Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline

This is going to be grand when it gets to the Supreme Court. The 4th circuit ruled entirely based on Trump's campaign statements. This means that Ginsburg will HAVE to recuse herself based on the comments she made during Trump's campaign.

Heather doesn't seem to know that the president of the Phillippines is a bloody tyrant who has ordered (mostly drug users) hundreds, if not thousands of people to be imprisioned and murdered......

He's about to kill a bunch of ISIS affiliated jihadists. I will judge him after that.

Pretty much none of our business though. We can't afford to be the beat cop in every corner of the world.

"Sergeant York" on TCM now. One of my favorites. And, basically, a true story. Gary Cooper is great in this. Basic training marksmanship scene on now. And very patriotic, in a good way. Great movie

Great movie at the right time. It was playing at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor and was played as patriotic film for most, if not all of, World War II.

I like this line in the article:
"Note to new homeowners: if you bought your home for more than the assessed value, itís probably best not to protest your property appraisal."

Also, note $190K for a home in Southeast Austin with "homeís roof damage, rusted vents."

I have to protest my land up in Limestone county again. I did a few years ago and had no luck even though it was appraised for $10k more than I had just paid for it the month before. This year they raised it 23% and there have been no improvements. It is just woods - no structures- and isn't even fenced.

I have a small bridge built across the creek that holds my four wheeler and tractor but to access the back 90% would take a $20k Bridge. I don't expect to win this time either but I have to try.
No utilities either.

I use a lawyer for my house down here, and they take a % of the first year's savings, but rural counties don't have those types of firms. Lawyers up there want an hourly rate and a retained.

Last time after I was denied, one of the county assessors approached me to ask if I would help him protest his taxes in another county because he liked my presentation. I declined. That is not a joke. Right after he disapproved mine he asked for my help.

A feud between two families in S.E. Austin (not the best area of town for any of you vistors, though one you need to sorta drive through to play golf at one of the public courses) results in one man shot, another stabbed, another run over, and local news said some kind of crime scene at the hospital. Police investigating the 'multiple crime scenes.'

I have stayed at one of those of extended stay budget suites places right across 35 from there but it has been awhile.

Keepin Austin weird.

Modern American cars and trucks are shit ~desu All of them are going downhill though even Toyota is not as good as it used to be they keep cheapening everything. Cars are to the point of being so cheap they don't even give you a dipstick tube to check your own fluid. I mostly blame emissions standards for killing reliability they keep adding more gears to transmissions to squeeze MPG's. I heard that the new Chrysler autos are going to be 8 speeds, them motherfuckers couldent even build a 4 speed to last now they are adding 4 more speeds LOL!

They aren't building their own. They are using this one under license. A lot of manufacturers are doing the same thing. Just ordering custom shift points/torque curves. Its all in the software these days.

What?  You mean he's going to type his genius with his new keyboard, then briefly show us a screenshot?

bwahahahahaha  ;D

I thought he couldn't afford a new keyboard until the 1st of the month. Yet he keeps coming up with all these new books.

True. He resigned before that happened. Although, I've always thought it was bullshit to impeach a president for lying about a blowjob when there were obviously more heinous crimes he was guilty of but whatever. I guess when you're the president you can't even lie about sex, even though most of them have had sex with women who weren't their wives in the WH until the Reagan administration and then, apparently, it was young boys. I think we should stop demonizing people over their sex lives unless it involves actual evil shit that hurts other people against their will.

He brought it on himself by his own bad acts. He lied during the Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit. He knew if he told the truth it would help establish a pattern of behavior.

After the impeachment, it was his civil contempt charge that cost him $90k and his law license. Then he settled the Jones lawsuit for $850k. If he had settled when the suit was first brought, we might never have heard of Monica Lewinsky and it would have just been a footnote. Of course, if he had never been a serial molester, none of that would have happened. There is a reason he left Oxford, and it wasn't because he was homesick. I'll leave it up to interested parties to google Eileen Wellstone.

So (ha) Kushner's lawyer is Jamie Gorelick.  Come on conspiracy theorists - you should be able to make lots of hay from this.

She has worried me from her days at Fannie Mae. Now she is a bud with Bezos as a director for Amazon. Tangled webs for sure. I will let Jackass comment on her role in the 9/11 commission.

Maybe she is the source for the leaks to the Post.

Would it go to the mayors office before the CIA etc?

The JTTF was established after I left the USAF, but the way I envisioned it is that they disseminate actionable intelligence as quickly as possible when it comes to terrorist threats and methods. The fact that NYC raised their alert level almost immediately, leads me to believe that this info was shared with the JTTF as soon as it was received.

Patribotics IS Louise Mench -- ffs (idiot)!

So, it is obvious that you either did not read the article, or deliberately chose to misrepresent it.

If the marshall was dispatched, it was to provide notification of the due date for production of the memo requested by the court. The Supreme Court does not determine what an impeachable offense is. The constitution defines it, and it is up to the House of Representatives to determine what constitutes "high crimes and misdemeanors" as it relates to impeachment proceedings.

It is going to be a long 8 years for you. You should really ask your doctor to consider adjusting your meds. Maybe move to Oregon. There you can be relieved of your pain from your terminal illness.

No, I hadn't seen those. As some of the comments mention though, there are a number of possible reasons the Marshal could have been dispatched -- short of saying; "Mr. President", impeachment proceedings against you have officially begun". We'll know soon enough. He's Public Enemy #1, so under the circumstances virtually anything could happen, and the publicly-known or glimpsed chains-of-events and time-lines probably won't be fully and accurately filled-in and "officially verified" for months or years.

You are truly a tedious moron. I really hope that any of your "state of the art educational materials" were discarded long ago.

Here is a more plausible explanation, but I have no opinion as to whether or not it is factual. It has to do with the delivery date of a memo requested by the court with a deadline of 5/19.

Judging by the anger from GMP, the PM and HS, I suspect they either took it as read it was valued as sensitive info and was for official eyes only, or they tagged it as such.

My money is still on the leak coming from the NYPD or the NY State Police, both of which are members of the JTTF. Or, it could have been the NYC mayor's office. All of those have closer ties to the NYT than the WH.

No I didn't. I said some idiot in the WH, but they took their lead from Trump. He just happened to invite a Russian ex FSB agent into the Oval office and tell them information, "But never mentioned the word or name of Israel". Thats alright then.

To my knowledge the UK has never had a PM who flapped their gums and just came out with whatever sensitive information came into their head. I loathed Thatcher and Blair, but neither of them just blabbed.

Can you imagine if Trump had been the POTUS in WW2? He'd be broadcasting every day how a) he won the election b) how he won the election c) that he's POTUS and d) the latest secrets.

The UK had Bletchley Park and very few outside those who worked there knew of its purpose, Trump would have been telling anyone who would listen.

You give Trump too much credit. He hates the NY Times. My guess is that the info was distributed to the JTTF and then somebody from the NYPD leaked it to the Times.

Whether that was appropriate all depends on whether or not the UK marked it as classified. Lots of times intelligence info is distributed as unclassified. When I was in the USAF about half of our intel message traffic was unclassified. I haven't seen any reports on whether or not the UK put any classification on the photos or any restrictions on them.

Hey there, Heather.  I listened to the first ten minutes last night.  Just a few things.  First, the United States Court of Appeals is not a "lower court."  It's an appellate court.  Learn the difference.  Second, this case was heard en banc, which means all nine of the judges heard it.  The decision was 9-3 against Trump.  Why do you assume that the Supreme Court will overturn?
Even Clarence Thomas is voting against racist assholes these days - and this EO was written by racist assholes.  The may, and did, look beyond the body of the EO to statements made during the campaign - and Trump clearly stated he wanted to ban Muslims.  Which is unconstitutional.  Or does that even matter to you?  Probably not.

Yeah. You're a real rocket scientist. The decision was 10-3, meaning there were more than 9 judges.

It will be overturned at the Supreme Court.

p.s. Muslim is not a race.

Good night to GS and TL.  8)   I will listen to LMH in bed while occasionally munching on jelly beans.   :D

Take care all!  :)
