I wonder if MI sucks at football because Obama's daughter chose the school? Everything Obama touched turned shitly.

My son and daughter-in-law live in the high mountains of the Sierra Nevada. The soil is poor and she loves to garden. Their cabin is surrounded by wooden planters filled with herbs and plants. It's an above ground garden surrounded by forest with the main problem being direct sunlight.

I offered her a plot of my land to grow a garden. That plot has a row of sunflowers. When I saw her this weekend, I mentioned the flowers looked so heavy and were bending down toward the earth. I asked, "how do you know when to cut and roast them?" She said when the plant is dead.

There you go.

10 years ago it became clear to educated people that the reputation that Scientists had achieved for the past 100 years had been trashed by AlGore and the UN IPCC faked data and faked CO2 blamed for warming. Now the same World Goverment Cabal has gone full retard on faking a crisis where none exists. Science is dead. Propaganda Rules.

Our last surprise lilies, the only red flowers we have in the front yard, are mostly withered and sere. We caught just a few glimpses of hummingbird; most years we have them for several days running. Hovering.

Good luck with the cataracts, R.

“cataract surgery this coming tues. Althouse. How is your eyesight now?”

Good luck!

The results have been fantastic and I even enjoyed the whole experience, working with such great medical professionals with this specific expertise.

"Joe Biden -

Sounds like a Babylon Bee parody (Althouse: Not Funny!)

If true and California keeps passing laws making more and more things a crime (like throw away plastic bags) and I end up in jail because I haven't paid attention to whatever the current California legislators have deemed criminal, I'm going to declare myself a female in prison. A woman is so much more comfortable to wake up with after a night's sleep. Note: I've woken up to same woman for the past 31 years and there is no better way to start the day to face a screwed up world.

Pretty much true and the left is determined to wreck the rest of it.

Fort example.

Humanitarian engineering focus the skill and capabilities of engineering theory and practice toward aiding the greater good of humanity by offering stakeholder centric solutions to medical and disaster relief, global outreach, human displacement, human safety, food security, cultural awareness/sensitivity, and economic development.

That was fun to watch. Brewers keep winning.

Where's my Roy Cohn. Fascinating. It will probably not come to flyovers. But you can watch toy story That's good for you deplorables. And fatty and grossie pasty white oldies. Ann's audience. Your legacy Ann. Catering to ugly old republican white men. What an acclomplishment. No fabs here.

walter said...

Gonna vote for pasty Biden or Warren, Titus?
FAB!

Titus said...

And married a republican who cared about the deficit when a democrat was president and now doesn't give a shit when a republican tripled it. Meade, when you going on a bus to bitch About the deficit? Your an uneducated flyover. Spot you a mile away Please never go to coastie cities, like you would, stick to rural Utah,Kansas, and Nebraska. Perfect fits for a dimbass from Indiana a hideous state.

walter said...

Biden and Warren...defecit HAWKS!

Roy Cohn was totally fab!

Titus' usual carefree and casual tone is being immolated in direct correlation with the crashing and burning of his beloved lefty candidates and the utter destruction of every dem/left/LLR-lefty hoax plot coup attempt.

So much fun to watch!

I just spent 20 hours traveling from San juan to Las Vegas. As I relaxed, I listened to the full 3 hours of corey lewendoski's testimony before nadler's impeachment whatsit.

They kept asking the same 5-6 questions over and over. Lewandowski would often reply "i have asked and answered that question already."

That made no sense to me. "asked and answered" would make sense. "that question has been asked and answered" would make sense. "i have already answered that" makes sense.

He used the phrase "i have asked and answered that" at least a dozen times or more. To the point where i wonder if it has some special meaning.

Any of our legal experts know?

The hearing was hilarious. The Demmies kept getting themselves tangled in knots.

"He used the phrase "i have asked and answered that" at least a dozen times or more. To the point where i wonder if it has some special meaning. Any of our legal experts know?"

In court, the objection would be phrased "asked and answered." But it's obviously wrong to put "I have" in front of it. My guess is he knows the stock phrase "asked and answered" and in turning it into a sentence in need of a subject, he's just lost sight of how the 2 verbs need different subjects.

Meade said...

Titus, you've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?

Red Sox are done for 2019. They're so inept this year that they can't even muster the energy to play the spoiler, see: last night's 11th inning loss to the Rays.

I wonder what sort of stepping-on-a-rake anti-Trump story will start off this week?

Nice photo. They say a picture's worth a thousand words, so true in this case.

The summer sun is fading as the year grows old
And darker days are drawing near
The winter winds will be much colder
Now you're not here

I watch the birds fly south across the autumn sky
And one by one they disappear
I wish that I was flying with them
Now you're not here

Like the sun through the trees you came to love me
Like a leaf on the breeze you blew away

I saw the Titus' TDS rage last night but decided to wait and reply after a good night's sleep.
Normally he comes into the blog in a drive-by with some flippant comment about how "hip" his gay lifestyle is, at least in his mind. But he was raging last night.

I am sure the AA commenter audience comes in all sizes and shapes and shades of skin tone. Why even I have a farmer's tan from lots of bike rides, most of them even in shorts.

Danno said...

Titus, typing hurriedly on his iPhone. Auto-spell would be a big improvement.

Titus's Ecstacy taking it's toll. Fabulous!

Thanks, Narr. Thanks perfesser. I'll push my anxiety down a notch.

It looks like Titus popped a few too many amyl nitrates last night.

Not good for you, Titus.

lge said...

"What's a dimbass?" That's an epithet bad fireflies fling at bugs they don't like. To claim that another lightning bug doesn't shine brightly enough in the posterior, they call him a dimbass.

On the subject of dimasses and glowworms, Johnny Mercer's lyrics for "The Glow-Worm" are so creative. He has one line, "You've got a cute vest-pocket Mazda, which you can make both slow and faster" -- because Mazda was a brand of light-bulbs at the time. Though Mazda had some prior meaning.

>>Thanks, Narr. Thanks perfesser. I'll push my anxiety down a notch.

While paying tons and tons of (pre-tax, FWIW) insurance premiums, I've been mostly a fugitive from the medical care system for practically my entire life, just a few years short of Althouse's (F* the statins they push on *EVERYBODY*). Only exception was eyecare (and, to a much less extent, dental care). The cataract surgery about ten years ago was the best thing ever. Surgery on both eyes within about six weeks was a breeze, although one eye took a couple of months to recover completely. I've got a bit of a different issue with one eye, but my eyesight is better than it was since I was about 8 years old. Still use reading glasses, but not a big deal, unlike the twenty years of glasses, then thirty years of contact lenses, etc.

Bizarrely had a detached retina problem a few years earlier than the cataracts (I was about twenty to thirty years younger than most of the other patients). Surgery a bit more serious, but it also went very smoothly. I have immense respect for American eye care medicine.

gpm said...

To blather on, the cataracts have at least two effects

The first is that your night vision goes to hell. Although I still don't like driving at night, it was next to impossible with the severe cataracts. I live in Boston but spend a fair amount of time in New Hampshire. It was hard to head up north during the winter, first, in terms of driving up, and then, in terms of driving around once I was there.

The other is that the cataracts dull/yellow everything. It's a wonderment to discover there are still things that are actually bright blue.

Hmm, this makes sense, unfortunately...

It’s Deja-Vu All Over Again – The Ukraine Effort is Simply “Obstruction 2.0″… - The Conservative Treehouse

The idea of a Warren supporter did not make sense to me. I viewed it as more of a deep state strike against Trump, coming from the Intelligence Community.

And it sounds like this was planned for a while.

And the rapid deployment, it's 3 house committees, to investigate this is suspicious:

- Eliot L. Engel of the Committee on Foreign Affairs
- Adam B. Schiff of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
- Eli Cummings of the Committee on Oversight and Reform

House Committees Launch Investigation Into WaPo Report That Trump Took Advantage of Ukraine -Townhall

And it seems the MSM is pushing this hard. My Mother, a loyal LA Times Reader, mentioned this scandal sounded bad...

Fortunately, Trump changed the conversation by counter attacking, making the discussion about the corruption of Biden's Family.

I am still amazed that Trump is still standing, with everything that has been thrown at him during his term in office, must amazing.
