Or did Pendleton give you a brain wipe before you left? I'm joking, sort of.

Nah dude - only the top ego's are even interested in that kind of shit.

I don't even want to begin to explain to you the fucking hassle and waste of a parade - it' be more fun to start listing the tricks I know to get out of them; and believe you me, we tried everything we could think of to avoid 18 hours of hell even a small parade entailed.  You just cannot imagine.

The bill authorizes the U.S. government to spend about $500 billion more over the next two years and suspends the debt ceiling until 2019. Most of the additional spending is not offset with cuts elsewhere, which means that the $20 trillion national debt will grow significantly. Sixty percent of the new money goes to the military; the rest goes to domestic programs.

This is the largest increase in federal spending since the stimulus passed during the depths of the Great Recession. Republicans almost universally opposed that bill in 2009, which cost $787 billion over 10 years, on the grounds that it would increase the debt too much. The only difference between now and then is that the economy is firing on all cylinders and doesn’t need stimulus.

Trump is trying something new; managing the economy by random action. There is no cohesive plan of any sort.

The blueprint allows states to add or increase tolls on inter-state highways, and to charge fees to use highway rest areas.

However, it bans states from charging for "essential services such as water or access to restrooms".

Okay, so which is it?  Are they charging the truckers for sleeping there or what?

Sounds like more privatized rest areas, that tends to be the trends.  Like we need more tolls either.

I'm still more concerned with the privatization of water reservoirs.

Privatizing Food Stamps

I see a future, a future where autonomous Corporate Food Trucks cruise the roads of our fair land dispensing ready made quorn meals to the needy based on their food account balance. A quick, painless DNA sampling will determine who you are (and what you've ingested) and allow you to pick from pre-made foods you can still afford that current food week - if you've followed the current testing rules. Advertisements of what you can afford will be targeted at you and if you don't want to eat from the Pizza Hut truck the Chic-a-Filet truck is only 3 minutes later, with Taco Bell and McDonald queuing up behind.

Jimmy had competitors but few held their own half as long, and none could rival his human decency, beginning to end.

Wow, well played Ms Daniels, well played. That was quick. For as smart and tough Trump and his cadre make themselves out to be, they really are something. Doesn't take much to egg them on into hanging themselves.

CNN reports that Gates has had a “Queen for a Day” interview with Mueller’s team, a term criminal lawyers use to describe an interview in which a defendant answers questions from prosecutors and can admit to crimes with few consequences.

Also known as "spreading the umbrella". Go off the record for a while in the hope that he will name drop a couple of names that aren't made men so the prosecutor can put a few feathers in his cap and the made men get to go free and the public thinks that "measures are being taken" and all that jive.

It's also how you get your Federal witnesses to testify.  If it's a Federal investigation, usually every fucking body is guilty.
