Chicago leads the best of 7 series 3-2. If they win tomorrow, we’re headed for a Cleveland vs Cubs World Series. I’ve figured it out. It’ll be a great series with 1-0 pitcher’s duels and 12-11 offensive explosions. It’ll come down to game 7. It’ll go into extra innings. The visitor will score 5 runs in the 14th, the home team will respond with 5 of their own. Before the 15th inning can start, either the asteroid will hit the stadium, Live! On TV! or the zombie virus in all the drinks will kick in and we’ll watch the ‘fans’ rush the field and eat the players.
Let’s see if there are any other portents.
Iran’s war with Saudi Arabia is getting interesting.
Their al Quaeda branch had a schism which gave us ISIS and “moderate rebels”, both are getting their asses kicked in Syria and now they’re in trouble in Mosul. Meanwhile, Iran is making progress in the Saud’s neighborhood in Yemen, by fighting us. Remember, strong horse, weak horse, retarded horse.
Iran has stepped up weapons transfers to the Houthis, the militia fighting the Saudi-backed government in Yemen,…
… could exacerbate a security headache for the United States, which last week struck Houthi targets with cruise missiles in retaliation for failed missile attacks on a U.S. Navy destroyer.
Oman, once afraid of us and acting like our friends, are ignoring the smuggling of weapons in or possibly actively aiding it. Who knows? Who cares?
“The nuclear deal gave Iran an upper hand in its rivalry with Saudi Arabia, but it needs to be preserved,” the (Iranian) diplomat said.
Yeah, most people paying attention, excepting our fine political, intellectual, moral and social betters, have noticed that. As we’re selling arms to Saudi Arabia, we’re helping the people they’re fighting. Iranians killed a bunch of our people in Iraq and now we’re fighting with them in Mosul. Obama does like to fight both sides of any war.
In Akbar Britain News, France, sick of Calais being a third-world land-piracy haven, is trying to talk Britain into taking in ‘children’ to be reunited with their families, and they’re going for it.
In an unconventional move, the French minister wrote a column in British newspaper The Guardian on Monday directly addressing British people and making a passionate plea on behalf of ‘minors’ currently camping in Calais. However, the average age of these ‘minors’ is 25….
Meanwhile, British Home Office refuses to disclose the number of migrant ‘children’ arriving from Calais — in what a British newspaper described as an “information blackout”.
That’s gonna end well.
I don’t know if these next two things are connected, but here I felt like drudgetapositioning.
Obama meets with Italian PM
Italian PM scuttles sanctions against Russia for blowing up Aleppo.
As his peeps are making noises about getting into a war with Russia. Obama does like to fight both sides of any war you know.
During his press conference with Renzi, Obama said Trump should stop whining, here he is expanding on that by lying about Hillary!
No matter how tough the odds, no matter how much people try to knock her down, no matter how mean folks can be, she doesn’t point fingers. She doesn’t complain. She doesn’t whine.
The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, the Basket Of Deplorables, the rant on “Why am I not 50 points ahead”, Trump Stalked Me At The Debate, Bush’ Fault, Selected Not Elected and my ass did not immediately respond (they were laughing too hard, and farting I guess).
The GOP has a plan to replace Obamacare. Not repeal, replace. They have some happy pabulum going on, but then they get to the part where the gov’t is involved.
Build a stronger NIH. Our plan provides NIH with a robust, steady level of discretionary funding while increasing
accountability for taxpayers and supporting scientists working on cutting-edge research.
Gov’t hiring scientists is not going to help “cutting-edge research”, it’s going to put bureaucrats in the position to decide what they should work on. Instead of the lure of profit.
How about you regulate it against fraud, make some sort of system to adjudicate disputes (we could call it a “court” with “judges”! I know where you can find such a system and it’s already up and running) and get the gov’t out of it?
If the GOP assholes would vote to repeal Obamacare they’d win the election in a landslide.
But then, they’d be giving up their power over us and we’re just too dim to run our lives without our fine political, social, moral and intellectual betters telling us how to do it.
Which is why I’m all in on this. The more time politicians spend on unimportant idiocies the less time they spend on taking-my-freedom idiocies.
The Kemper County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved an ordinance during its regular meeting on Monday that makes it unlawful for any person of any age to appear in public in Kemper County in a clown costume, clown mask or clown makeup
It’s sorta funny they proved that there’s a fool born every minute by banning circuses.
Some endy with no funny.
World wine output is expected to hit a four-year low in 2016 after bad weather hit production in France and South America, industry forecasts say.
Well, somebody’s boned. I mostly drink Italian and CA vino.
You just cannot have a sense of humor anymore.
You don’t have to be a star to grab a pussy… cat,” the ad joked, informing the public that all shelter cats over six months old can be adopted for $50 from Oct. 19 to 23.
I do think it’s funny, but you’d think that after the ad folks got done laughing, one of them might have said, “You know, maybe that’s not such a great idea. People dont’ have a sense of humor anymore.” You’d be wrong.
