This is going to be a hell of a lot of fun and I for one am going to enjoy it.

An open question is whether the punishment will be sufficient to dissuade anyone competent from ever trying it again.  Because these fuckwits almost got away with all of it.

Another is if anyone will actually compile a complete list of charges.

Back to being a AAA club for the rest of the MLB I guess. Glad I have other interests. MLB has been a tenuous one, because of all the futility. 3 out of 4 years in the playoffs don't count. They spent 2 decades being the worst Pro franchise in sports. I guess that want that title back. They wasted McCutcheon's best years anyway. Hope it works out for him in SF.

Jingle your coin in their face and tell them, "fuck off, this means more than your opinion".

Look, clean and sober is hard, I have seen relatives conquer the bottle but never get past that point.  I am proud of you, two years is a milestone and a good one.

My guess is that they have teams of consultants trying to find a wedge to hurt his numbers, and nothing really works. One thing I think a lot of people do agree is that he is not "presidential" so they are hitting that hard. This falls into that category, but they do not realize that being "presidential" does not make you a good president, and us rubes understand that. 3. It is a distraction. The dems need to win the immigration battle, but what is their argument? Up till now they got away with a lot of crap that has been very damaging to *citizens* and they understand that say what you want about PDT, he will call a spade a spade and cut through all the PC bullcrap. This is a way of making his voice out of bounds and shutting down the conversation. "You say haiti is not as nice as norway --- Racist!!!!" That is all they know and if they can not shut it down, they realize they can not win on logic, economics, compassion, sanity, etc. The only argument for more immigration is that business owners don't want to pay full price for labor (at top and bottom ends of the wage scales) and Bloomerg needs someone to cut tend to his lawn , and the dems need voters.

Nope.  Even if Trump DID say it (which I doubt), the majority of non-sh*tholers agree with him.

And they make hundreds of thousands times more money than Count Basie ever made, and the guy was a musician. If I was black I'd be ashamed to  listen to that vile noise they listen to today.

279 Yes, "muse" always strikes me as feminine. I don't know if that's absolutely the case, but that's how it feels. Posted by: publius, the Persistent Poperin Pear at January 15, 2018 08:01 PM (8O3HH) In Greek mythology, the nine Muses were the daughters of Zeus by Mnemosyne, Goddess of Memory: Calliope, Terpsichore, Polyhymnia, Clio, Euterpe, Erato, Melopmene, Urania and Thalia. So yes, the word "muse" has an unmistakably feminine context.

281 117 You must have really screwed up to have so many people respond that way. This all takes time... Are you feeling sorry for yourself because of the way they now treat you? Good chance you earned it in my experience. We love to feel sorry for ourselves because we know that's what leads to getting high again. Be humble. Be so busy being grateful for your sobriety that you don't have time to dwell on other people's opinions of you. Yes, you'll feel like shit for a long time. Your good life has a noticeable inertia and takes a while to get rolling after so many years of you wrecking it. Do yourself a favor and go to a meeting a day until you feel better. When i hear the question you asked I hear someone getting ready to use again. Go to a meeting tonight and remind yourself how you used to be too.

520 One thing I think a lot of people do agree is that he is not "presidential" so they are hitting that hard. This falls into that category, but they do not realize that being "presidential" does not make you a good president, and us rubes understand that. Posted by: Gentlemen, this is democracy manifest at January 15, 2018 08:06 PM (LWu6U) The Democrats (and salon hot 25ers) love the idea of the President as American Royalty. They want someone they can worship, someone they can coronate, someone they can swoon over, someone that will bestow favor on them. Every Dem president they can is portrayed in a way to meet this criteria, and every GOP one is a heinous, contemptable villain, or a puppet to the true villain, and beneath the stature of the office. They don't understand the rest of the country wants a capable executive and leader, not a romantic figure. The danger is when they convince the middle of the electorate that their vision is the more important one.

634 Pennsylvania anthracite coal has high levels of valuable rare earth elements that we currently (foolishly) import from China. A plan afoot to mine the coal. Cheap energy, recover technologically vital (high priced) elements, and plug a giant national security gap. Win, win, win. https://preview.tinyurl.com/y728msfl

636 I was just watching the second season of Stranger Things and the dick-weed California kid with the Z-28 called Hawkins a shithole. I guffawed. BTW, the kid playing the California douche has got to be a bastard son of Rob Lowe. Has to be. They can deny all they want (no way, totally different last name and shit), but dayum!

639 It was remarkable how quickly VN became 'Nixon's War' Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at January 15, 2018 09:51 esp after watching the LBJ movie, it was really McNamara's war.

640 You think so? It's been a long time since I used either one, but the Haynes motorcycle manuals were pretty superficial.

When I think of after-market automotive manuals, I think of Motors. which were pretty thorough.

I was thinking auto manuals, not motorcycle. Haynes auto manuals: large format, more pages, better illustrations. They used to say that each manual was based on a complete teardown/reassembly of an entire automobile by master mechanics.

641 It was remarkable how quickly VN became 'Nixon's War' Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at January 15, 2018 09:51 Indeed. Robert McNamara has a lot to answer for as he has admitted.

643 Go listen to "Signifying Monkey" by The Johnny Otis Show. (NSFW) Makes you feel young again. P.S. Re: Motorcycle manuals, in olden times, for serious work I would end up with all that were available, Haynes, Clymer and the odd service bulletin, maybe. The only "Factory" manual I have is for 250/350 Yamaha 69-75. I'm a compulsive reader of techy stuff anyway.
