    I was thinking Giuliani. I use to say that I like Trump voters more than i like Trump but that's not so anymore as I genuinely like him now. It was hard to warm to him after all his antics and histrionics. The Birther nonsense was abhorrent and I didn't trust him. And the first year, I ws unhappy, he did look like a bloviating version of Jeb! run by McConnell and Paul Ryan. As things went on, I realized we have the same enemies and he was actually helpful in a lot of ways I wanted to see move. He's still running up too much deficit spending, his environmental record is poor, and foolishly opening the can of worms on this Iran thing is driving me nuts. Generally though, pretty good.

    Jewelry? Surely that's a typo but I can't figure out who that is. I didn't want McConnell running the show. I'd rather Hillary over him or Jeb! or Romney. The GOP establishment is worse than the Dem establishment. My biggest fear/suspicion is that once Trump leaves office, the Republicans all remove their masks and reveal they were secretly neocon Bushtards all along.

    I owed BLS $250 and had to figure out how to get it to him but it was worth it.

    Joe Biden is now trying stand-up comedy...

    So all the various freak show factions are kind of split: Warren gets the feminazis, Buttguy gets the gays while the two split the smarmy university professors, Sanders gets the Communists, , and Harris/Booker split BLM. The freak vote goes 20 ways. Meanwhile Biden is left all alone raking in the big bucks of the neo-lib plantation owners/zookeepers such that the rest don't matter. Biden is in the best place it seems to me, all the #metoo dingb*tches can kiss his ass and then line up to get their hair smelled and shake their t*ts. I don't want to spread fake gossip but I'm reading some interesting things on Biden's son, not the dead one Beau, but the cokehead one, Hunter involving dubiously ethical overseas investments and Joe pulling strings for him with those governments. If true, that stuff may be a torpedo, if not, forget I mentioned it. Not everything you see on the internet is true after all.

    Housing Collapse 2.0

    I'm confused. Seattle... isn't that the city where the cops are racist and they all are required to apologize and beg forgiveness from hooligans for misguided concepts like trying to prevent vandalism or is that Portland? One of those cities had a Harvey Milk street downtown where Anitfa goons were put in charge of directing traffic because the cops must undergo surgery to have their pen*s and baIIs removed.

    Mayor Pete Nails Fox town hall

    I keep hearing either halfway decent or good things, I suppose I may take the time to tune in at some point. It won't be before their first debate though.

    You were supposed to watch the town hall, not joneo's secret video.

    New All in the Family and Jefferson's tonight

    This. Done right, they could use the legacy of these shows to break the stranglehold of PC culture on the modern era. What I expect instead is PC bashing of the straw man white racist that exists only in the leftist imagination.

    Michael Avenatti is indicted on 36 federal charges

    I’m still hoping he'll run. Campaigning from prison would be hard, especially if he has no interest access, but surely they could provide him a live stream during the debate. Maybe the Dems can hold the debate in prison to highlight their inmate voting rights commitment.

    Heavy snow here

    We didn't have winter this year, autumn rolled into spring which came in late January. February and March were also nice, April is when summer arrived.

    We've been pretty deep into summer for a few weeks, you can have some of our heat. I'll meet you halfway.
  15. Since we had the incredibly long delay this morning and afternoon to download/watch the show, I'd put myself in a no Game of Thrones spoiler bubble for many hours and just waited patiently for it to finally appear. The delay though threw off our viewing schedule and by the time we finally got it, my wife had things to do, and so she didn't watch all day. Anyway, my wife couldn't take it and so she went and read about the episode on a Chinese social network site. What she found got her so worked up and pissed off that she's refusing to watch the episode at all. As for me, I just want George to finish his books. My expectations for the show have been low since I'm a fan of the book story much more and I dislike how two second rate HBO hacks deliberately hijacked/ignored/weakened various aspects of the story and re-wrote them to make them dumber: Dorne plot, the Sansa/Littlefinger storyline, and the Brotherhood without Banners and a dozen smaller things. I also don't like but am more willing to forgive some of the character storylines that were cut out an merged for, I presume, brevity or budgetary reasons. The sets, the actors, the animators, the music, the costumes, the directing were all first rate, but the writing went south when they changed, then got beyond George's work. Moving beyond George is George's fault. But ignoring what George wrote in favor of replacing it third rate BS was uncalled for. They had some successes in Season one.... here's some cool Cersei/Robert, Cersei/Joffrey, Cersei/Jamie stuff we'd not seen before. They put the moondoor in the floor rather than the wall, which was much cooler and an improvement on George. Then they got carried away and just started scrapping things.
