Exactly how many pages of documentation is necessary for an impromptu personal visit to talk about grandchildren? And if the meeting was of a more nefarious nature, why would there be any documentation at all?

Everybody except the brain dead knows the tarmac meeting was about Hillary's email scandal. Politically, Hillary is done. Put a fork in her. Sure the Clintons still wield power -- keep an eye out for Chelsea -- but nothing like before. Does the deep state progressive bureaucracy still have reason to shill for the Clintons? If so, what could those reasons be?

The Democrats, especially the Clintons, have never had a problem throwing operatives like Lynch under the bus -- or worse -- just to get a nasty scandal behind them. It's not about them, it's for the cause, after all. They are willing to sacrifice a thousand soldiers to carry on for just one more day. So why is there all this documentation and why all the hiding by the FBI? Why not just release the documents, spin a lot of disinformation, force some loyal soldiers onto their swords, and move on?

What's really going on?

Either Lynch understands the thing about the bus and made documentation containing some deadly poison pills should she ever find herself looking at the underside of a bus, or, or... the meeting wasn't about Hillary at all?

The meeting could have been about... Lynch. One of the "or else" type talks. An offer she couldn't refuse.

Or... With all the shenanigans and escapades of Bill Clinton, Hillary's name may have never even came up.

We will never know for sure what was discussed on that tarmac. The documents may be a total fabrication, like Comey's lame attempts to create evidence with personal memos.

But the story isn't really about Hillary-the-former-presidential-candidate anymore. It never should have been focused solely on Hilary. This is about Ma and Pa Clinton. I suspect Bill still wields all the power in that crime family.

The mere existence, let alone the continued hiding of all these documents suggests there is more to the tarmac meeting than just an early revelation of Hillary's criminal status. I have never really understood why such a meeting would have been necessary in the first place. Why would such a meeting have been necessary? Anyone?

Was there no conduit secure enough to pass along such a brief amount of information? And if the sensitivity of the information was so great that it required the Attorney General to meet clandestinely in broad daylight </eye roll>, with a former president, the husband of the current presidential candidate, who is under DOJ investigation, why the document trail? And, what moron would got to that meeting?

Bill might be despicable, but he is no moron.

All I know for sure is that the whole fugging thing is surreal.

I can't wait to hear Big Government's justification for this

In 2016, according to BLS, “consumer units” [...] spent more on average on federal, state and local taxes ($10,489) than they did on food ($7,203) and clothing ($1,803) combined ($9,006).

Consider: Those numbers do not include vehicle inspection and registration, driver's license, traffic fines, gasoline tax, sales tax, property tax, mandated insurances of all kind (anything mandated is a tax in my book,) taxes and fees on phone bills, the $20 you have to pay every time you go pick up a prescription, the mandated Dr visits and lab tests required to continue to get said prescriptions, unnecessary mandated Dr visits to get contact lenses, registrations and licenses required to work in your profession (safety, for the children, doncha know,) required continuing education to keep said required registrations and licenses.. these are off the top of my head.

Then when you consider all the costly regulation and taxes that companies pay for which we reimburse when we buy their products....

Then, after all that, politicians and economists have the nerve to call out consumer debt problems and America's lack of savings. What was the report last week? 78% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck?

Recent reports from the Harvey destruction zone claim some 80% of the flooded do not have flood insurance. Is that irresponsible, or is it that average folk simply can not afford the luxury of flood insurance?

It is very difficult to make a case that people should be more responsible when they are compelled to give almost all their money to a bunch of irresponsible, incompetent, wasteful, money grubbing morons who blow most of it on parties and influence peddling.

If you can't vote them out, starve them out. Mark me down for 50% tax cuts across the board. And that's just to get started. Fees and unnecessary professional licenses can go next. Using the police for state sponsored highway robbery can go next.

What is today, will not always be.

The firing is bad enough, but...

The New America Foundation has received more than $21 million from Google; its parent company’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt; and his family’s foundation since the think tank’s founding in 1999. That money helped to establish New America as an elite voice in policy debates on the American left.

The only bad thing about the coming destruction of these moron, leftist, jack booted corporations is that the multi billionaire executives get to keep their money. Like, not only do I want to see Facebook destroyed, I want to see Zuck broke and broken, with no legacy but shame.

But hey, that's just me.

A soggy good Tuesday morning to you all!

I am not storm blogging #HurricaneHarvey but I wanted to give a little update:

First, to those who care, I am doing fine. Mostly dry. I live about 35 miles south of Houston inside a protective levee so no flooding at my place so far but water seems to have been blown into every nook and cranny of my RV and Tahoe. Once you get use to the funky smell, it’s ok.

What I would like to let everyone know is that on my way into the office at about 7:00 AM this morning (Tuesday) at the Angleton Wal-Mart there was what seemed like 100 boats of all kinds: Pontoons, air boats, jon boats, Carolina skiffs, skimmer skiffs, micro skiffs, bass boats, whalers, jet skis, and kayaks being organized and preparing to mobilize. I was surprised there was no yacht in the mix!

While the local TV news reports primarily on Houston and the surrounding populated areas, (granted, they can’t really get anywhere else) I know that this outpouring of compassion and donation of time and material is going on in small, remote communities all over southeast Texas. The Cajun Navy are here; I have seen people on the news who have come down with their boats from Waco, Dallas, and points all around to help their fellow man in need. I saw Millennials who had volunteered at GRB because they needed to! Millennials, for crying out loud! (Take it easy, I'm just teasing the Millennials. I have one myself at home.)

I felt a chill run through my body when another fellow, quite a bit older than myself, who along with his 2 dogs had also just happened by Wal-Mart and who was almost in tears at what he was seeing, repeatedly saying, “This is America! This is what America is all about!”

Couldn’t agree more.

“America” as presented in the media day after day is nothing more than politically driven, made-for-TV agitprop. What have they been calling it of late? Oh yeah, fake news. What the news shows every night, like Charlottesville, Berkeley, the stupid statues, Antifa, KKK, white nationalist, etc, etc, etc, blah, blah, blah is nothing more than hate-inspired, manufactured crappola.

What I saw in the Wal-Mart parking lot is real.

What I saw in the Wal-Mart parking lot is the America I know and love.

What I saw in the Wal-Mart parking lot gives me hope for our country and for humanity.

D'Uh. Is anyone but the most gullible witch hunters surprised that a banned substance has beneficial pharmacological properties?

"This is not a big scientific step," says David Nutt, a neuropsychopharmacologist at Imperial College London. "It’s been obvious for 40 years that these drugs are medicines."

I am surprised the MDMA trial is being allowed at all. I wonder if the new bosses at the FDA have anything to do with this decision? I wonder how many other beneficial substances have languished on Schedule I because cheap, readily available, effective medicines are not really desired by some people with bags of money and bags of lobbyists?

Drugs are scheduled not by danger, but according to how badly politicians don't want the public to have them. It's all about control.

Follow the money and you will see who doesn't want MDMA used as a medicine. After all, people make the stuff in their bathtubs.

Who all can fire off a nuke within a week?

One that actually works, I mean.

I wonder if it took so long to fire one of these bad boys off because of measured restraint, or this is as soon as it was possible? I wonder what is the actual, honest to goodness readiness of the US nuclear arsenal?

Which makes me also wonder what is the actual, honest to goodness readiness of all the the other beligerent, so-called nuclear powers?

Hell, what does it even cost to keep one of these things ready to fire? Pretty damn expensive, right?

Well, whatever the answers, if we start firing off "tests" I'd expect everyone else to start popping a few off as well.

At that point, seems it would quickly become put up or shut up.

EDIT: Which, given the times, is probably a good thing.
