Service Notice

Things might be quiet here for the next few days — the lovely Nina and I are entertaining guests over the Independence Day weekend, and “a decent respect for the opinions of mankind” will forbid my spending hours banging away at the computer.

Feel free to chat amongst yourselves, of course.

  3. “a decent respect for the opinions of mankind

    “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”

    Misogyny promoted by dead white guys? Discuss.

    Happy Independence Day, all y’all!

    AJ Loretta Lynch meets Bill Clinton on board Bill’s airplane in AZ? Is this a heads up to Bill to prepare yourself for bad news? Or, is the fix in? If so, why meet way out West on his plane? Could be an interesting “Independence” Day weekend. If Hillary skates, then it is going to be “who stands where and for what”.

  5. Robert,

    If Hillary skates, then it is going to be “who stands where and for what”.

    The fix is in. Not sure about who “stands”, but my guess is the AJ will be kneeling — to secure her job.

    Cold War ended? Who actually won? Still on as far as I’m concerned. Only the battleground has shifted.

  7. Oops; it’s AG not AJ.

    BTW, here’s the new motto for a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree:

    “Blowin’ in the Wind”

    For greater authenticity, it should be sung to the tune of, “Where has all the justice gone? Long time passing …”.

    Well.

    Well I would pay attention.

  10. JK,

    If this lady were to say, “Jump!” the only reasonable response would be to ask, “How high, Your Beneficence?”.

    JK, I know what you mean! When our mothers meant to “switch” us as kids, she would make us go outside and pick one off a bush and bring it to her. There are kids today who could use a good switching. Come to think on it, there are grown adults who could use it too.

    JK, quite a holiday weekend for sure. It seems like we have returned to the Carter years especially in matters concerning Iran. My trust in all matters US Navy have weakened a bit in the last few years and this disgrace pretty much capped it. I believe the White House let it be known to the Navy that it was “keep it zipped” or be fired. Seems much of our top brass has been given those orders on many matters. Really makes me angry. We are deploying forces all over the world against potential enemies but in actuality, our main enemy resides in the White Mosque at 1600 Pa. Ave. Well, if he isn’t, what would he be doing different?

    Then we learn that the FBI “interviewed” The Harridan last Saturday for about 3 hours. Three days later, The Harridan’s crime partner is seen scampering from his jet to the just landed jet of Obama’s AG for a friendly chat that nobody knows the subject of, but can easily guess. Three days later we learn of the meeting and poof(!) “Independence” weekend is upon us and all will be forgotten by Tuesday. If this wasn’t America, I would swear a bloodless coup was in the works with the FBI as patsy.

  16. Robert,

    Here is the money quote from WaPo:

    If the meeting was “primarily” some personal chit chat, what was the “secondary” purpose of the meeting?

    Weeell Henry … and mind I’m simply throwing this up in the air …

    The server reputedly was located in the basement of the … “Clinton residence” so … there’d be two who orter know’d better … and AG Lynch could very likely (especially after that little chit-chat) wax lyrical on how to use the word Conspiracy …

  18. JK,

    Well, everybody should know by now that within the Obama administration generally and with the Clintons specifically, they parse their words carefully when walking the fine line.

    That’s the money WaPo quote that precedes the money quote I mentioned above.
