Brrr. 39 degrees here this morning. Had to do a light scrape of the windshield. Maybe it’s time to start the winter beard.

The Pirates are in the playoffs!

Of course, MLB now has a one game wild card playoff, so they are only guaranteed one playoff game right now.

The Clairton Bears lost a football game Friday night. Which is remarkable because they last lost on the first week of the season in 2009.

Their 66 game winning streak is a state record and was the nation’s longest active streak. That’s 4 state titles and 5 WPIAL titles in a row.

I haven’t poked my nose out yet, but my local weather report says that it is 50 degrees ouside with a “real feel” of 46. It also says that it is dense fog, but it looks sunny to me. Debating about mowing the grass. Could be the last time for the season.

Since Everest is the highest mountain, it’s topological that Hillary was named after its first climber 10 months before he climbed it!

It’s disgusting that the public, is so used to rank dishonesty, that a story like that didn’t disqualify one for office.

Especially in the age of Google.

Can anybody explain to me the strategy involved in demanding that the Senate not vote on the defunding bill that we all insisted that the House pass?

What is the plan there other than to make the GOP look even more foolish?

I would consider his comments, in the light of Scooter Libbys conviction.

Libby was never going to be acquitted. And should have been pardoned.

In that Arena, you would be fighting a battle on unfavorable ground, that there is no chance of winning, and damaging the prospects for winning the War.

The only it would make political sense, is at the very end of the term, to lay out the laundry list of Scandal, and explain to the electorate, that you are trying to set terms for the future.

Besides, no one in their right mind would cast a Senate vote, to put Crazy ole Joe in the Oval Office. ;)

I was being tongue-in-cheek. I think there is value to having a vote on a “defunded” CR. It lays out, with all we know right here on the eve of Obamacare, who is still for and against it.

But it is not going to be defunded. Obama has a veto. It will roll ahead.

Those preparing to die on this hill and waiting to claim everyone is a traitor who doesn’t are vastly overestimating the position we are in.

As I have said for a long time, we have to experience Obamacare in order to repeal it.

I really can’t see getting involved in a series about self-made misery-there is plenty of the real thing around-the science channel, history 2, maybe a movie-all more cheerful...

When I was a case manager, I saw a few people turn-stupidly-to drug dealing when an injury limited their income temporarily. Without exception, since they lacked experience, they were quickly busted and jailed, workers comp benefits cut off, do not pass go, do not collect $200, no drama, no sympathy...

Maybe it is just me, but having seen a good bit of that firsthand at work, I crave happier amusement. Even in my own circle of acquaintances-three of my friends are dead by their own hand in the last 3 1/2 years-none of them had exhibited anything unusual at all, no notes, calls or other warnings to anyone-just suddenly took themselves out.

Learning new things, laughing, etc is a good therapy to shut out an insane world for awhile each evening, before going back into the thick of it the next day-when the creator of our latest misery index is living in Hawaii again, the world may come back to balance...

I really enjoyed the wedding planning for the cub, even though in the last week or two, she was as loony as that Teresa Cristina broad in the Miami-based novella, “Marido en Alquiler”-I hope any bridezilla moments are few and humorous...

I’m almost done with “This Perfect Day”-done with the nail-biting parts of Chip and Lilac’s adventures in the collective-it gets better now. I did the pay-per-view thing for the first time in 6 years over the weekend and watched Star Trek Into Darkness a few times, which I enjoyed very much-it was about terrorism, but unlike in the recent real world, the good guys won in the end...

I was up at 5 ish, Rubio was excellent. But what else os important, is they have been painting Cruz as a lone gunman.

Lee,Rubio, supporting him overnight and others, during working hours, disprove that emphatically.

Around the 5:00 hour he was hammering Dictator Reid.

One wonders if the calculus was to try to get it in the morning news, because CSPAN only attracts geeks like us lmao!

I (we) love talking politics here, I loveTalking football...But man it’s easier to drink this long, than it is to talk this long.

Theatre, in real life. With Substance.

Priceless.

The other thing here, thats striking....is Cruz is reading from Bastiat , Paul right now commenting on it, and Rubio was talking political philosophy.

How long has it been, since we have had men that actually come across as thinkers, and not just politicians.

Imho, Bush and Cheney both in different ways always came across that way.

In a sort of philosophic sense.

Watching this made me realize thats actually the internal switch that makes me like or dislike a pol.

But what is the end game?

We still have a vote later today, right?
