Jeebus you little psychos, it’s only a turn of phrase.

(ahem)

Our second Sunday with no football.  It’s almost enough to make me want to go to church.

No, the XFL so does not count.

So what did you do to pass the time today?  What sprots did you watch?  Whose cornflakes did you piss in just because you could?

It’s Sunday and God is not watching, He’s busy.  So you can get away with it here.

See?  That kid knows what’s up.

I don’t understand how people can see what is happening with MLB and still give a shit about baseball.

And I say this on a football blog.

yeah right

I had a singularly incredible day.

I can share the recipes, and I will, but I wish I could share the love.

Goddamn I raised cool kids and some really cool grandkids.

Eldest granddaughter can officially thump a damn bass!
And both of the little ones can keep rhythm on the drums.

Sang some Delta blues up in this’n.

Here to tell.

yeah right

First instrument I learned to play was a bass.

Not electric, I played a big ass 6 foot tall acoustic bass and my good friend Doug from across the street helped me carry it across the desert to school. Played it with a bow.

Lesson 1.

Find your riff and stay in it.

Never falter.

You’re the bass line now.

yeah right

Like this.

All right, I’m back from Mammoth and I didn’t fall for any Craigslist scams for cheap tickets. Instead I paid the full face value of $200 goddamned dollars. The conditions were pretty shitty but at least the weather was nice and it wasn’t too crowded.

Apparently during Trump’s limo lap at the RainedOutBecauseGodExists Daytona 500, Fox cut to commercial; specifically, a Bloomberg 2020 commercial. Can anyone confirm that this happened?

Redshirt

Sadly no. Because that would’ve been beautiful. But seriously, that guy did go slow. They said its because a car needs to be going to certain speed to not slide down the incline on Turn 1 and 2, but come on…its the Presidential Limo. Even though its classified, I’m pretty certain that thing that break 100 MPH easy. Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if it can break 200 MPH if you open it up.

SonOfSpam

Ah, ok. I read a thing about that where some online folks were complaining about “Communist Fox” cutting away from Fatty Fat Fat’s slow-ass fatty fat fat car ride vroom. Too good to be true I guess.

King Hippo

Bloomberg was even running ads during tonight’s ACCN NC State/Bahstan Cahlege shitshow. I expect an ad when I open my toothpaste tube.

Still prettay damn sure he ain’t getting the nom, but I will be happy if he continues to spend (as he said he would) into November.

I want (i) his spending; and (ii) Sen. Warren running.

Yep, that would be loverly.

Then she or the Democratic voters needs to get their shit together.

The voters are fine. The party doesn’t have its shit together and is instead smearing it all over the walls.

Redshirt

That I agree. That’s why I started on the Dark Side Path early in life. The Ohio Democratic Party makes the Iowa Democratic Party look competent.

King Hippo

yeah, I’ve read about the OH dysfunction. Look at how the MI party has gotten its shit together of late. They have a great slate of statewide officials now. Getting some shit done, too.

King Hippo

It’s just a difficult time in history. Voters are confused (myself included), because we don’t know how best to proceed.

Redshirt

Go moderate and steal the moderates and independents from Trump.

Don’t worry about trying to change everything all at once. If you were facing a normal Republican, maybe you could, but you’re not facing a normal Republican. You’re facing a far-right, nincompoop who is leading this country down the road to ruin.

Get Trump out, then go from there.

King Hippo

I think going left can work, but it needs to be inclusive left. Because it’s going to take everybody working together, center, left, centre-left, and good faith conservatives – to pull ourselves out of the muck.

Everyone willing to resist this monster deserves a chance to be heard and to participate in fixing this mess.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Hillary was a moderate. John Kerry was a moderate, as was Al Gore. Obama was a moderate in a radical’s clothing, which is why people went to the mattresses for him (including yours truly) and which is why he won. A lot of people see Bernie Sanders as too radical, but he’s the only Democrat in the field that generates the same kind of enthusiasm that Obama did.

King Hippo

But Obama was inclusive, and got support from all corners of the coalition. Sanders is “factional only” and I don’t like the air of superiority re him being the only answer.

I hear not all – but too many, and they are very vocal – of his supporters basically saying they don’t want a coalition. Uh…good luck with that.

Until Hillary, the nominees have gone farther left each iteration. Just at a manageable pace. Which I think is consistent with how the Party members have moved left.

Redshirt

I agree with the Obama part. I wasn’t a huge fan of President Obama, but I really liked what Candidate Obama was saying.

King Hippo

He was better at running than governing. But he was still pretty good. And as fine a human being as one will ever get.

We don’t have another Obama fired up! (and ready to go). so we have to get everybody behind…somebody.

Unsurprised
Unsurprised

Obama was a liar

King Hippo

I really wanted to see the Party take after CA, and how they’ve managed their zooming to the left, while still taking care of being competent and inclusive.

Too bad Kamala’s campaign was a damned dumpster fire.

ballsofsteelandfury

THIS!

King Hippo

It looks like about 70% of the Dem voters just want a normal, rational adult (who isn’t Hillary). They just can’t pick ONE.

A brokered convention means Trump gets re-elected. But struggling to see how somebody breaks out and prevents same.

Redshirt

If Buttigieg and Klobuchar gets settled, they may take it from Bernie. If they continue to split their side of the tent, its going to the Convention in a 35/35/30-40/40/20 split.

If Warren and Biden somehow gets fixed, all bets are off and you guys will be eating your young in the Convention.

King Hippo

Dok made some good points re Klobuchar, and the “horrible boss” stories smelling to her like misogynistic BS. I have not ruled out voting for her.

Something just strikes me wrong with Mayor Pete. Not sure he is sincere. But my ex-wife is trying hard to sell me on him.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I get tired of the defeatist attitude of “if X happens then Trump wins”. People say that about everything under the sun, and guess what – some of those things are probably going to happen. The easiest way for Trump to win is for people to declare the game lost and to give up.

King Hippo

I am saying that “Bernie gets nomination despite being against the clear wishes of 70% of the voters (and being none of the other candidates’ 2nd choice) OR “Bernie has the most delegates, but waaayyyyy short of 50% and doesn’t get the nomination” will fracture the Party. I don’t see how it would play out any other way.

CLARIFIER – either Bernie has to break out of “25-30%” land (which would prove his campaign can broaden), or someone else needs to consolidate the not-Bernie vote and get more delegates than him. Otherwise…deep shit. I will still vote for the nominee so long as Tulsi isn’t on the ticket.

Unsurprised
Unsurprised

Going moderate and right has never worked for the Democrats. It kind of worked for Clinton because he also had Perot stealing votes from Bush and Dole (Bill never won a majority), but it killed Gore and Kerry and Hillary, and frankly, I see no reason to take advice on the ostensibly left wing, opposition party winning from a Republican in 2020.

Horatio Cornblower

I find that being a straight white male helps enormously.

Unsurprised
Unsurprised

Voters haven’t been asked to get off their asses and do something besides vote and maybe write a check in generations. Change requires work, and no one has demanded Americans do work since Jimmy Carter gave his malaise speech. And while it might have worked if he didn’t have shit instincts and Reagan/Bush didn’t commit treason working with the Iranians to extend the hostage crisis, but instead for forty years we’ve been told that if we just elect the adults in the room with all the answers everything will be fine.

It’s not fucking fine and it hasn’t been since before I was born. And only one candidate is acknowledging this fact. But for obvious reasons, people have a hard time being told they actually have to do shit to get a representative government that will keep them and the world from dying so that wealthy people can not be even slightly inconvenienced.

Bloomberg and Shen Yun, that’s all the commercials.

Looks like I’m going car shopping. Anyone have any horror stories about Kia Souls or Nissan Sentras. I’ve rented those cars the last few years and I was impressed by them?

As for other cars, seeing how the latest police cars wouldn’t make a good Bluesmobile, there is already a road-worthy (and I’m assuming fully functional) Batmobile already on Cincinnati roads, and some racist assholes have ruined the General Lee, does anyone have any suggestions?

I bought my second Ford Escape 2 years ago. The first one had over 100,000 miles on it, and other than routine stuff like tires and a battery, I never had a problem with it. This one is good too so far, fingers crossed! It’s not a sexy car, but it’s reliable, and that works for me.

Redshirt

Yeah, that’s my thing. I don’t want flashy; I just want something that won’t break down or won’t get me killed in an accident.

The flashiest car I’ve ever had was a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT. From a distance it looked like a sports car, until you get close and read the model name. I’ve received sympathy notes from would-be car thieves with that car.

House district 58 is mostly north and west Birmingham. I lived in house district 54, which is east Birmingham. My friend Neil Rafferty is the representative for that district, he’s a great guy! I would not be surprised to see him eventually move on to bigger and better things. I moved from the Ham 2 years ago, and I miss it. Alabama is a shithole, but there are a few bright spots, and Birmingham is one. Some of the nicest, most progressive people I have ever met, and I’ve been damn near everywhere. And the food there is world class. I need to go back to visit soon!
