Does he know something we don't?

Via Twitter:

I'm not sure anyone in power wants to remove Mueller at present.

His team is inflicting the damage on itself, just let 'em continue until all credibility is gone.

The Trump-Russia collusion narrative is being unmasked for what it is

An excellent assessment of how we may have arrived at where we are today...

Where'd this come from?

Last night's weather forecast said we'd get some mid to late morning snow showers.

No mention of anything overnight. No mention of accumulation.

And I wake up to this...

The only road up and down this mountain is narrow, steep, and has a tremendous drop off.

Looks like I'm staying put for the time being.

The Jerusalem shuffle

Democrats are especially quick to criticize President Trump's decision to move the U.S Emabassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Take note how senate Democrats voted when the move was approved as legislation in 1995:

S. 1322 (104th): Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995

December 7 remembered. And a photo from December 8, 1941...

One more Pearl Harbor remembrance photo

Never forget 2402 American lives were lost in the attack on Pearl Harbor.

A Marine rifle squad fires a volley over the bodies of fifteen officers and men killed at Naval Air Station Kanoehe Bay during the Pearl Harbor raid. These burial ceremonies took place on 8 December 1941, the day after the attack. U.S. Navy photo via NHHC.


At the very least, tainted in perception. Very likely tainted in actual undertakings.

Glitchy game

Must've been a huge online audience for Saturday's SEC championship game. The CBS online stream we're forced to watch at the cabin (no access to cable, and trees preclude a dish) kept choking, freezing, and rebuffering.

We ended up listening on radio, and watching the defective delayed stream as snippets of after-the-fact highlights.

We enjoyed the Dawg's radio commentary more than that of CBS.

BTW, CBS stream quit glitching as soon as the game ended, so it appears it was an overloaded server, bandwidth, or some such problem during the game.

One more thought: If viewership of a football game can choke online television, what might happen in the event where a panicked audience piled on in a national emergency or some such thing?

Online TV is great, but it seems it's still got some bugs in it.

Record Black Friday gun sales

Don and I took a stab at some analysis on last Friday's program.

But the idea that Black Friday 2017 again delivered record gun sales took us both by surprise.

Among my thoughts: Where the heck are people putting all these guns they keep buying?

How many of the guns bought in the past few years have yet to be taken out of the box and fired?
