Yes Gordon, I remember that event here in Nashville. It was around noon here as well and. I had a pinhole in a piece of cardboard projecting onto a sheet of white paper. I think that it got up to a 3/4 eclipse. Yes the light was quite different then. The total eclipse will be even more strange and exciting.


It is probably also the one I experienced in south central NY in the early 90s.

The science channel is making a big deal out of this. They are cool to watch but unfortunately I live about 300 miles south of the path the total eclipse will follow. I think my area will get between 50 and 75% totality.


Nyah, nyah! 89% totality here!

The New York Times states:

"The F.B.I. has spent several months investigating the leads in the dossier, but has yet to confirm any of its most explosive claims."


Translation? If it can't be confirmed in one day, it's fake?

Sean Spicer Resigns as White House Press Secretary, the swamp got too deep for him.
WASHINGTON — Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned on Friday morning, telling President Trump he vehemently disagreed with the appointment of the New York financier Anthony Scaramucci as communications director.

Mr. Trump offered Mr. Scaramucci the job at 10 a.m. The president requested that Mr. Spicer stay on, but Mr. Spicer told Mr. Trump that he believed the appointment was a major mistake, according to person with direct knowledge of the exchange.

IIRC, I said some months ago if anything positive comes from the Trump presidency, I'd acknowledge it. And we might have one small thing, via Jeff Sessions.

Search results.

Does this mean I think Sessions is good? No. Trump is good? No. That I think Sessions won't find a way to turn this into something unnecessary/bad? No.

Was that sessions or just the career lawyers, i.e. the swamp?

The owner, Eric Snyder, and an associate were charged with fraudulently billing insurance companies for more than $50 million for false treatment and urine tests over nearly five years, the authorities said.

Bruce Alan Zimet, a lawyer for Mr. Snyder, said that his client had been cooperating with investigators since 2014. “We anticipate having additional communications with the government,” Mr. Zimet said, “and we’re hopeful they’ll be listening carefully and evaluating whether this is a case that should go forward or not.”
(source emphasis added).


So, not really of Sessions' doing or remotely connected to being started by him?

Correct.

There has always been, is now, and will always be a Ruling Class.

Only supreme idiots believe that either their Ruling Class is good. Or another Ruling Class will be better.

So if you know that, why all the bullsh*t you continuously post?


I wonder if the supporters of the French Resistance were "supreme idiots", after all, did they not believe a ruling class would be better than the occupying overlords they had? The Soviet refuseniks? The opposition to South African apartheid? The American revolutionaries? etc. etc.

Here are a few Clyde condemns as supreme idiots for believing "another Ruling Class will be better":

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Paine
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Locke
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montesquieu

Seems to me the supreme idiot is one that claims complete and unerring knowledge of all time (was there a ruling class before life arose? "has always been" suggests yes), the supreme idiot is one that does not allow for the possibility that others may be able to make reasonable assessments of their "ruling class" and conclude a replacement may be better.


My vote was for Tyrannasaurus Rex.

Well there is now.
It;s been a month and the biggest mystery in modern times for a Naval vessel has happened and not a word in here. What in the world could have been going on on the bridge of the Fitzgerald to allow it to be rammed by a ship twice its size but only capable of less than half its speed. Nobody at the wheel? Who was supposed to be monitoring the radars? Where were the required lookouts? Could it be that on the midwatch maybe some hanky and some panky was happening distracting those who were responsible for running the ship?

What has happened to the world's morbid curiosity.


Maybe

1) The morbid curiosity is drawn elsewhere.
2) We had our morbid curiosity burned out of us after discussing missing planes for more than a year?
3) ?

Guy your point is the things on the list should be encouraged?
Clyde do you want me to clean fish in your drinking fountain?

So are you suggesting that since there's no CFR saying it's illegal, that the federal government is encouraging me to urinate in water fountains?

What you don't understand is that some K street lobbyist wrote these CFRs to force the wildlife and fisheries department to purchase faucets from the only supplier which labels some of their faucets "fish faucets" and then charges a price that returns a 10:1 or 100:1 profit.

Drain the swamp!

that guy... Attribution?

If true and the reason to have this on your list.

Accept my apologies. But don't expect any apologies from betregger or Gary.

If not true...


It would not be surprising. I mean, who could forget the evening news in 1985 where toilet seats for Air Force One cost $40000. 11 years later, wonderfully dramatized as "What? You don't really think they pay $40000 for a hammer, do you?" But, let us not forget that this particular fleecing of Muriqua took place under President Whitmore ... errr, ummm, Reagan.

Surprised nobody else has jumped in.

The popularity of Bernie's movement and Trump's success in the election are not the results of their charisma alone but reflect a major discontent with the status quo.

Include the continuous false allegations from, and dismissed by the people: Ruling Class, their Fraud Media, the Democrat Party, the Alt Left, et al. Which is now, with increasing hysteria, including Trump Jr. Which even CNN admits there was no illegality.

Hopefully, and I have no hope. Those making and parroting these falsehoods. Will eventually understand that personal ethics and morality, are more important than Power or Ideology.


So, CNN is the interpreter and arbiter of the law? Thanks for that tidbit. I'll start watching.


Wait! What?
Chris Christie (a former prosectuor, yes?) had to go and disagree with CNNs admission of non-illegality?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/christie-getting-russian-oppo-research-probably-illegal-205306729--politics.html.

Look, I know sometimes you have to sort through legalese. You have to sort through intent of writers of laws. Yadda yadda yadda. But, come on. Is there not a dang thing in this country that we can say without a doubt is legal or illegal?!? Yes, bring evidence. Have a trial of peers. So on and so forth. Whether there's evidence a crime was committed or not is one thing. But do we have to quibble over every single thing regarding whether it is a crime or not???
