    POTUS Impeachment Watch

    The sad thing is so many agree with him. I can just hear it. “Why should we care about what happens to foreigners? Let’s take care of our own first then worry about them. That’s their problem. Not ours”.

    He’s doing their bidding for them. Acting as their agent. He’s on their side.

    POTUS Impeachment Watch

    He’s also played down the importance since it was one of their citizens. He’s inching toward the line that it’s ok if other countries do bad things to their people and the US shouldn’t get involved. He wishes he could deal with journalists in that way too. He’s jealous.

    POTUS Impeachment Watch

    There’s nothing that could happen to Trump that would be too harsh. He’s mobbed up. He disregards evil. He abuses people both physically and mentally. There’s nothing he could do that would justify condoning his behavior. His actions are entirely self serving. Especially with regard to Saudi Arabia. He owes them money. A lot. That’s what he bases his decisions on. He is completely compromised.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Kennedy didn't like the Roosevelts... or at least Eleanor, and we have the FDR Joe Sr stuff. LBJ didn't care for JFK obviously. JFK tolerated LBJ and saw his usefulness and understood that since he won in 60 he'd always have that upper hand so he didn't get riled up over his insecurities over that. Truman thought JFK was a doofus. Nobody really likes Carter personally. FDR probably wouldn't be caught dead in the same room with half the other guys. Supposedly he and Truman only met a handful of times. And he was his VP for a short period of time....

    Mike Clark, of Drew and Mike fame, passed away last night, according to his facebook feed. RIP and thanks for the many laughs. A huge part of my young adulthood. Every morning.

    I replied to this one by saying 'Jackson and Wilson don't have a drink because they kept asking the black guy to make them one. They don't understand why he's there'

    The Pet Peeve Thread

    I get emails from amazon about specials on books that cost like $3. I saw one by a comedian named Fred Stoller. He was part of 6 comedians featured on an HBO series "The Young Comedians Show" in 1989. It was the 13th annual. Along with him were David Spade, Rob Schneider, Warren Thomas, Drake Sather, and Jann Karam. That may have been the final year they did it. Jann Karam was the Jerry girlfriend who was "into it". In real life she was passed over by agents for being too pretty. They said they'd either want to have sex with her, breaking a taboo, or their wives wouldn't let them take her on as a client. She auditioned for elaine but Jerry said the audience would believe it if he wasn't dating her.

    Did he go to play baseball or just hike and explore the country?

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    What I found interesting was his deference to Pompeo before commenting on MBS. It's almost as if the cabinet is running the country and know the POTUS is irrelevant. He's just Uncle Junior on the Sopranos who Tony installs as the lightning rod, who thinks he's in charge but it's all the captains setting policy. Who is Tony in this scenario?

    isn't the potential #1 pick this year an alleged generational talent?
  14. "Yeah I came into work. Ears are still ringing. I had a hard time falling asleep it was so intense. Some sounds are muffled and others are amplified" No joke. See my post in the Pet Peeve thread.

    The Pet Peeve Thread

    Forgot earplugs to the Foo Fighters concert last night.... my ears are still ringing. Some things are muffled and it's sort of amplifying other sounds at the same time.... like a sensitivity. I'm too old for this ****

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    If you go to that twitter thread it's entertaining... In that picture here's what the guys would think: Nixon - he'd get it. He wouldn't go along with the extreme stuff but he would look at it as brilliant politics who tapped into a feeling Ford - He would have resigned the party Reagan - He'd have accepted the results and stayed out of it. TR - He'd have quit calling himself a republican Lincon - He'd have formed his own party

    They won game 1, 1-0... they lost game 3 1-0. It's my fault anyway. During game 2 I was at a friend's house. He bought my game 3 tickets and was taking a date. (He was widowed a few years prior) and we watched the game together. Going into that inning I told him "Man, that place is going to be going nuts up 2-0."

Naturally the discussion turns to Sergei and based on what Jimmy D says to the Athletic... it's not going to happen for a long time. https://theathletic.com/585730/2018/10/12/loyalty-above-all-things-a-number-is-headed-to-the-rafters-in-detroit-while-sergei-fedorov-waits/

    Red Kelly's #4 going to the rafters

    I'm not a fan. I haven't been in that specific area on the Cass side since May when I was on a group run. I'm going tonight to see Foo Fighters. From Woodward it's nice and shiny and corporate. From behind it on Cass, the giant parking structure blocks everything. Across 75 to the area behind the Fox and Fillmore is a giant parking lot divided up into mini lots. For LCA unless I get a parking pass in the structure from my suite owning friend, with it's own parking spot, I still park where I do for Tiger games, well away from the crazy stuff. I always go to Harry's. They're trying to swallow him up.

    One forgotten thing from that series.... going in a big question was how Peralta would do in LF. and Red Sox fans taunting him... "Who's your dealer" and Tiger fans would retort "Same as Papi's

    Yes. Game 5 was close score wise but I remember spending most of the game texting some old HS friends who live out of state. I hadn't "talked" to the guy in 20 years. It was an uneventful game. I also remember thinking the same in the Oakland series when Scherzer had to come in. And his final out was a sinking line drive that Jackson got to but off the bat I thought it was going to be a gapper. Game 6... that seemed like a comedy of errors. Which they almost won if not for some mistakes.
