I agree with Vox

If you're "shaken and scared" over someone flying the American flag IN AMERICA, then you're not really American, no matter where you may have been born.  Sarah Silverman cares more about being Jewish than she does about being American.  So maybe she can fuck off to Israel, or some other country.  She doesn't need to stay here.

I have been reliably informed

That my Northern Wife and I have broken Mississippi.



"Y'all damn Yankees brought this shit with ya!"

I'm from the West.  Am I still a Yankee?

"A Day that will live in Infamy"

Of course, if you're at a publik skool, you probably don't know a damn thing about this day.  More's the pity.  So if you're a bit older, teach the young ones why it's so important.  Chances are they've been told that the Heroic Intersectional Feminist Japanese bravely struck at the Imperialist Patriarchal Hegemony or some crap like that.

The NFL just extended Rodger Goodell another five years

Which means it's at least five more years before I watch another NFL game.  And that's if I ever watch another game at all.  The Mrs. and I find that we always have something else to do on a Sunday.

About the Flynn Kerfluffle

It's a big fat nothingburger with nothingsauce, topped with a garnish of nothing.

To anyone with any legal insight, such as Alan Dershowitz, Trey Gowdy, and Andy McCarthy (one of them should be the attorney general), it was the barefaced admission by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that, after nine months in charge of an investigation that had already been under way for eight months, he has absolutely nothing to justify continuing this charade within its original mandate to explore a Trump-Russian connection. 
General Flynn was indicted for precisely the reason President Trump dismissed him as national-security adviser: lying about discussions with the Russians.
And now there's all the news about the Hillary cabal of Muller's team doing what corrupt Democrats do hitting the news, like this new revelation that hit the pages today.  I'm wondering if Trump isn't letting all this play out to expose what a sham the entire thing is.

Jeannie Rhee, who was hired by Mueller last summer to work on the probe, was the personal attorney of Ben Rhodes and also represented the Clinton Foundation, Ingraham revealed. "This information will put further pressure on Special Prosecutor Bob Mueller to resign." 
Rhee is the third member of the Mueller team this week who has been shown to be brazenly partisan. Two other members of the team have been revealed as highly questionable hires in recent days as well — Peter Strzok, an anti-Trumper who helped exonerate Hillary Clinton, and Andrew Weissmann, an unscrupulous prosecutor who told outgoing acting Attorney General Sally Yates in an email that he was "proud" of her for defying President Trump's travel ban.
I believe it was Napoleon who said "Never interrupt your enemy in the process of making a mistake", or something like that.  By the time this "investigation" is done, Muller will look like the rabidly partisan shitbag we all know him to be, and the Democrats will be standing there gasping for breath, with every shell in their gun expended and no hits. 

A preview

Folks at work:  So, you have a passport?

Me:  Yes, but it expired a couple years ago.

Folks at work:  Better get that fixed.



So I'm guessing that I won't just be sitting behind a desk all that time.  The Mrs. should really enjoy the house she picked up, because she's going to be spending a lot more time in it than I will.

Small Towns

So the Mrs. and I rolled into here on a Sunday.  Got into our hotel and went to find a place to eat.  Seems a lot of the joints around here aren't open on a Sunday, or they close early.  It reminded me of living in Sparta, WI.  It's a slower pace of life.  That's not a complaint on my end, mind you.
