As hare-brained as they are, I have to opine that the actual economic consequences of US steel import tariffs and Chinese soybean tariffs are essentially zero.

Apparently people still respond to incentives.

Who is Patrick Reed. He made 9 birdies and 3 bogies at Augusta National today and leads the tournament. He is 27, born in San Antonio, Tx and played his college golf at UGA and Valdosta. He lives in Spring Tx, and is a likely pro-Trump.

Go get em, Pat.

Radio Japan changed their years-old theme song on April 3rd, to a pretty new one.

Old, first 8 seconds; new, rest.

If they'd used the new one long ago they would have won WWII.

I spent the last few days in Kona, Hawaii. Best drink ever: get fresh coconut from tree outside, use heavy knife to slice open; pour coconut juice into tall glass over ice and rum; add slice of lime; stir.

They give the green jacket out on Sunday evening, not Friday evening. Reed won’t be wearing it. A former champion will

Reed just might make it to the Green Jacket ceremony. He has played Speith in two tournament playoffs, and won one of them. He played another guy in a tournament playoff and won. So rookie nerves should not be the issue.

FTR, Speith is my favorite golfer. Bubba Watson is not popular with my friends any more

Though Madeleine Albright gives it a good try, for gobsmacking idiocy you can't beat the NYT op-ed by Neil Gabler attacking the new movie "Chappaquiddick." Gabler, who's writing a biography of Teddy Kennedy, stunningly asserts that "no one but the most lunatic conspiracy theorists see this as anything but a tragic accident in which nothing much was covered up." The Times wisely held this several days past April Fool's, because otherwise no one could have taken it seriously.

Check in with Zach Johnson, and get back to me

Gabler, I'm sorry to say, has become an indicator of the wild leftist shift of my alma mater.

President asks Congress to Declare War on Germany

1917 - "To such a task we can dedicate our lives and our fortunes, everything that we are and everything that we have, with the pride of those who know that the day has come when America is privileged to spend her blood and her might for the principles that gave her birth and happiness and the peace which she has treasured. God helping her, she can do no other." - Woodrow Wilson

When a young mechanic failed to repair Gertrude Stein's car quickly enough, the garage owner shouted at the boy, "You are all a génération perdue."

Stein, in telling Hemingway the story, added, "That is what you are. That's what you all are ... all of you young people who served in the war."

"You are a lost generation."

Patrick Reed won an epic battle with Rory McIlroy in singles during the last Ryder Cup.

Bay Area Guy - you say you put the lime in the coconut, and drink'em both up?

@DickinBimbos@Home. Heard about the video, first time I've watched it. That is the best 4 minute video I have seen in years.

Mr. Robinson, law-abiding, American citizen. Power in truth.

Reed has won on the tour. He’s a solid player. Spieth is an all time great. He’s a killer. Spieth put McIlroy out of business already.

Nicklaus and Tiger. Those are Spieth’s competitors.

the 4chan guy who reads Althouse said...

I was catching up on my Althouse tonight, and read her newest post about Rupaul. I kinda feel sorry for Rupaul: I think she has spent a life getting to be what she wants in her identity, and I think now that identity might have trapped her a little bit.

Because if she does something that isn't what people expect from her, they will turn on her and shit. So before she was Rupaul because that was who she wanted to be, but now she has to be Rupaul even if she wanted to move onto something else. And there's always someone in the crowd ready to yell 'Judas'. That's a Dylan reference, because this is Althouse, and I think she likes that shit.

So I was thinking about Rupaul, and how people react to her. Because now you're talking about the gay thing, really, and a lot of people have trouble with the gay thing, it's not just the 4chan trolls.

And I don't think I'd ever want to have sex with a guy, but who knows, I've been so drunk sometimes that I don't remember the previous night, and maybe one of the things I don't remember is that some guy sucked my cock. I mean, I don't think that has ever happened, but I don't know how I could prove that it didn't, you know?

So then I started thinking some more. And say there was a disease that would kill you, and the only cure was getting regular blow-jobs. Sure, at first that doesn't seem like that bad a disease, but it's probably difficult to get a blow-job everyday, even if you're, like, married.

I think you'd have to be rich, really, because I bet women are more willing to give blow-jobs if a lot of money is involved. For those who aren't rich, you just might have to make do with crack-whores.

Anyway, you have this disease, and you desperately need a blow-job or you're gonna die real soon and shit. And there are only two people there who are willing to give you a blow-job. But one is a dude, and the other is a skanky chick with raging mouth herpes.

So now you have to think: how important is it to me that I not be gay, at least for a few minutes? Because I don't want raging mouth herpes on my dick.

And what if some real fucked-up Kafka shit happened to you, like you wake up in the morning, and you're not a cockroach, but your girlfriend is now a dude? Does that mean you don't love her the same now? If sex is about love, wouldn't that mean you have to fuck her anyway, even with her now being a dude and shit? Because I think the marriage vows kinda say you have to.

Anyway, it was just some thoughts I had. I mentioned them on 4chan, but then everyone just called me a fag.

Awesome. Thank you.

As a (white) Southerner, I'll say If this guy isn't a preacher, I'll bet he grew up in the black church.

Anyway, Preach It Brother!

I don't watch sitcoms anymore, but after Ann's fascinating Roseanne post I had to check it out. Tonight I watched all three episodes in a row. Overall, great stuff and most importantly, it's funny.

Had a thought while watching EP3 "Roseanne gets the chair", I think Harris = Hillary, stolen clothes = private server, muffin = presidency, stupid hillbilly = deplorables, Chicago = Obama, "entitled little bitch" = ????.

Also, John Goodman is a national treasure.
