      They were likely also “protesting” their basketball team losing their playoff game and are now out of the high school playoffs. They were expected to take the state title iirc.
      Plus they’re thugs. No doubt about it.

      • lateblum says:

        The only MSM covering this story was Fox in Chicago. The papers did not. Other tv and radio stations did not. They can’t report anything that doesn’t support the narrative, can they?

    What kind of big news?

    TGIF everybody!! My son gets off early today, because he had to work late yesterday. So somewhere between 3:15 and 3:30 I am off the clock! Even better next week is spring break, so I’m off!!

    My sister and mother are coming up to spend the day with me……I know there are some drinks in my future this evening😋 They’ll probably want to go out for dinner, grandkids and all…..but at some point my vacation will start!😀

    Bonus, my house is clean…..like clean, because my mom and this sister literally go through my drawers and closets looking for messes or something to criticize……hence the alcohol in my near future.

    • Dora says:

      Have a great time with your family. Enjoy those drinks.

      Do you think it would be possible to send your mom and sister over to my place? My house could use a spring cleaning. 🙂

      • Somebody says:

        They don’t clean they just snoop. My husband used to leave things for them to find or set bobby traps. He once filled our medicine cabinet with marbles. He delights in finding bargain self help books at the bookstore, OMG some of the titles. He laughs with glee leaving books about and sex toys…..OMG the things he has put in my closet and drawers😲

        He sees it as a game. I don’t, I get really ticked over it. I’ve had friends think I’m exaggerating until they’ve been at my house to witness it for themselves.

        My oldest sister has chewed them out a couple of times at family gatherings I’ve hosted……didn’t phase them, snoop they must. They don’t do it to my oldest sister or to my brother, but they do it to me😡 My mom white gloves my house too, people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. No I don’t go through their stuff nor do I have any desire to. I spent 5 or days at my sister’s house in CA and never once set foot in her bedroom, let alone went through her drawers or bathroom cabinets.

        I’ll try to have a “great time”, but I’ll mostly be on pins and needles. My mom usually starts sweeping within 10 minutes of entering my house. I waxed my floors last night at 10:00, won’t matter……it will still be judgment day. It’s jealousy, the fault finding, because I am a stay at home mom……and now grandma. So I should be Martha Stewart in their opinion……perfection plus……pure jealousy, sad but true.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      What kind of big news?

      Ask me tomorrow.

    • votermom says:

      I’m guessing some ppl getting fired by Trump?

    • Constance says:

      My mother in law used to inspect and look for something to criticize as dirty in my house. So I hired a cleaning company for a deep clean before she came from that point on. She still inspected but I would just say “I’ll definitely get after the cleaning lady for that! thanks for pointing it out” That really upset her because the thought that her son was paying for my maid just burned her. Of course I made as much money as her son but in her mind her son was paying for me being lazy.

      • Constance says:

        Ooops! that comet was supposed to nest under the snooping inspecting relatives conversation!

        • DeniseVB says:

          Funny how comments can land willy-nilly here, but I can still follow the conversation 🙂 My mother-in-law was lucky she didn’t live that long into my marriage (R.I.P Theresa) or I would have had to hire a hit man. Her son, an only child, was perfect and I was a whore. True story, her precious would never do the “nasty”, she told people mingling at our wedding reception when asked if she’s looking forward to grandchildren. That was only the beginning…….no wonder my dh never let me meet her UNTIL the WEDDING !

          • Somebody says:

            OMG that is funny Denise! Did she live long enough for you to get pregnant?

            Visit went OK, very short. My mom had plumbing problems so they went to my brother’s last night and spent the night. Therefore they kept my nephews today and were out of their league and overwhelmed. Youngest nephew is a hand full and all boy, cute as the dickens though.

            Only issue was the faint smell of cigarette 🚬 smoke, my sister the nose insisted she smelled. They were more focused on keeping up with the boys and interrogated me as to whether I was smoking again to bother with too much snooping.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Glad you survived ! Mommy Dearest In Law lived through the first two, seriously mental, she never believed her son was the father…..not a joke….however, I ended up giving our youngest her name as a middle. I must not have hated her that much 😉

    CEO Charged With Multi-Million Dollar Fraud Was an Obama ‘Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship’

    We’re guessing we won’t hear much about this story on CNN or MSNBC.

    I found this on CTH:

    ====

    This video was scrubbed from the FIU twitter account.

    It is from this last Saturday.

    It shows local politicians and University officials, slapping each other on the back about how great the bridge is.

    But intrepid Trump supporters downloaded it and have been tweeting it around.

  6. Dora says:

  7. DeniseVB says:

    The bridge collapse gets even more tragic, gross incompetence all around, since 2013. Thanks Obama.

    Obama DOJ Forced FBI To Delete 500,000 Fugitives From Background Check Database

    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department under Barack Obama directed the FBI to drop more than 500,000 names of fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, acting FBI deputy director David Bowdich testified Wednesday.

    BREAKING REPORT: Paul Ryan Will Announce Retirement From Congress…

    Posted by Kane on March 16, 2018 2:13 am

  11. DeniseVB says:

    Interesting article on stress testing bridges. I think this accelerated bridge building is probably on hold for awhile. What was supposed to be a “less impact on traffic” project, that slab is going to stay put for weeks while forensic engineers figure out what the hell happened.

    http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/article205422719.html

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Thanks. That gives some light on the subject. I admit I am confused so I will have to do more research. It raises a lot of questions. Where they doing fine tuning with traffic running underneath the structure? Was this a good option for this particular situation or did the relative fast and easy modular path with few road closures outweigh other, perhaps more suitable, alternatives? How many other projects of this nature had worked/not worked/are in the works?

      In the video above (the one that has been scrubbed from many places with all the backslapping) I noticed a very odd movement of the bridge toward the end – after they were clapping – it did not look good.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I noticed how it looked like to two ends were merely resting on what looked like a kid’s erector set project. Didn’t look very supportive to me.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          The end units were still being completed. Turns out there was to be a midpoint tower plus cables for support. They were not in place and evidently no temporary support was used. And yes, they were doing stress tests and making adjustments without closing the street to traffic.

    So depressing, all this corruption and no one goes to prison.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I noticed “Fire and Fury” is still on the NYT bestseller list. Didn’t the author even admit it’s a bunch of crap? Who the hell is buying it?

      • lyn says:

        It’s still at Coscto.

        • DeniseVB says:

          “What Happened” must still be there too. I’m starting to think publishing companies are just a giant money laundering scam. How much does the author make on a book sale? I know Milo figured out he made more self publishing than his Simon/Shuster deal and why he dropped his lawsuit.

      That color is gorgeous on Melania! Oh, and it’s a good sign she didn’t smash that bowl on hubby’s head. (Re: the media obsession with Stormy).

      • lyn says:

        Re: Stormy. A comment at Bookworm’s blog:

        The lawyer negotiating the “extortion” of Hulk Hogan, for which the Gawker sex tape was a ‘shot across the bow’ was Keith M. Davidson is the same lawyer who negotiated for Stormy Daniels with now President Donald Trump. His “practice” was to find people with vulnerable ‘secrets’ and negotiate a silence for fee deal.

        Additional tidbit: Hogan went to the FBI and there was a sting which got the lawyer and the tape leaker arrested by the FBI in a sting. But they are never charged. Had they been prosecuted, the entire Stormy Daniels incident would not have occurred. Interesting how its all seems to circle the FBI.

        Starts at 00:26:20 in the podcast with the author of a book on the gawker/peter thiel/hulk hogan lawsuit, Ryan Holiday.

        But the verdict is still a travesty.

        • 49erDweet says:

          Yeah, I agree about the stupid verdict. But I thought I remembered a similar story and then noticed the 2013 dateline. It IS the same story. I wonder about things like like.

    • jenlyntx says:

      Okay…I think we have reached the end of the human existence. Ignorance is NOT a defense. I didn’t know killing evil people was wrong so sorry I just shot the judge, all muslims, and all democrats…

    I don’t want to drive under bridges nor get on a ski lift. 😢

    • votermom says:

      when ski lifts attack!
      I blame Skynet
      and Putin

    • taw46 says:

      Amazingly, no one killed. Only eleven injured.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’m probably the only person in the world who has fallen off a ski lift……getting on the chair, so I didn’t fall far. 😀

      • taw46 says:

        I fell getting off the lift. So embarrassing, lol.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I’ve done that too. Almost slid down the entire bunny hill on my ass. Needless to say, I never became hooked on skiing. Damn chairs!

      • John Denney says:

        Reminds me of a ski story I heard years ago about a woman who stopped partway down the slope to relieve herself just off the side of the trail. As she was squatting, her skis started sliding backwards, bringing her back out onto the trail, where she picked up too much speed, crashed, and broke a leg.
        Next day she was having a hot cocoa in the lodge with her leg up in a cast, and struck up a conversation with a guy with a cast on his leg, too. She asked how he broke his leg.
        “I was in the chair lift and saw a lady skiing downhill backwards while peeing, and I laughed so hard I fell out of the chair lift.”

    • swanspirit says:

      I have hated falling down in the cold, since I was a kid, and I fell down doing other stuff enough, so I never went skiing. 😎

      • DeniseVB says:

        I won’t leave the house when it’s icy now. Read too many stories of people of a certain age breaking hips and other bones, catching pneumonia then dying. Why risk that?

      • lyn says:

        McCabe gets fired? But it sounds as though he still would receive a pension.

        • Constance says:

          And what is with a 20 million dollar pension for a career with the government? That is way way too much. Maybe one million. Can’t live in Washington DC on a million dollar pension? Well then move like the rest of us, to some place you can afford.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I’ll take a million/yr for a career combat veteran with 30 years. 🙂 Seems unfair doesn’t it? I remember when working for the gov. was truly public service making less money than their civilian counterparts. Nobody joined civil service or the military to become wealthy. Most had to leave those jobs to become wealthy.

          • Somebody says:

            That figure is sketchy. It assumes he’s getting an old style federal pension and assumes he’s getting the maximum and also assumes he’s going to live another 40+ years.

            He will get a stipend of about 1/3 of his pay until he his eligible for social security because he was hired after 1984, so he’s not eligible for the old CSRS pension. Even if he was he hasn’t worked long enough to be maxed out.

            He is under the new system where he paid into SS and a thrift (401k). He isn’t old enough to tap his thrift. I seriously doubt he intends to actually retire and rely in his stipend too. If he goes to work and earns more that 15,462 he loses his stipend anyway. He will have to have an income lower than that for 1 year before it is reinstated.

            He’s trying to make it to his birthday which is Sunday otherwise he will lose 2% of his stipend for every year under the age of 55. Being an FBI agent he can retire early (20 years instead of 30) but he must also be 50. If he goes before he meets those requirements then he gets penalized and takes a reduced stipend.

          • elliesmom says:

            Teachers have the “rule of 90”. Your age plus the number of years you’ve taught must be equal to 90 to be fully vested. I wasn’t going to get there after working so many years in engineering, and taking a reduced retirement benefit still negated my eligibility for social security. A financial planner knowledgeable in that area talked me into going to work for a private non-profit high school the year before I was eligible for a portion of a teacher pension and to take my retirement funds lump sum and roll it over to an IRA. He had paid into social security benefits for his teacher wife as a “consultant” in his firm, and when they changed the laws, he lost it all. I was paying in the max to SS, and my SS payout is more than my teacher benefits would have been. While I didn’t get the added funds paid into my teacher pension, I did get what I had put in myself and the earnings on that. If you’re a teacher who takes a summer job in the private sector, your payments into SS are pretty much a gift to the government. The law was meant to stop “double-dipping”, but a lot of regular folks don’t know they’re going to get screwed. In my case Elliesdad made enough money we needed to do some planning, but without a heads-up, I’d have lost over $35,000 or $300 a month in benefits.

    Yeah for me!
    Got my A1c (diabetes)results back today. 5.6. Not even pre-diabetic. No pills. Doc says he’s never seen it go from 8.9 to 5.6 in three months.

    • swanspirit says:

      Wonderful news!!! Congratulations!

    • lateblum says:

      Yeah for you is right!!! How did you do it??
      We could all learn from you…

    • Constance says:

      Wow! So can I ask which diet it was that worked so well? My HbgA1c is creeping up and I could lose a few.

      • mothy2017 says:

        Cut out all whites. Rice, bread. Easy on potatoes. Airfryer (fruit in that thing is like candy). 3 well balanced meals and one snack. Lean red meat. Whey shake with higher carb meals. I will eat pizza but if I do that I take a long walk. Joined gym( never worked out a day. In my life) went from 175 to 157 in three months. Almonds. My cholesterol is near perfect. Spinach. Egg white omelet with one yolk and loads of garlic.
        I went to 4 two hour diabetes education classes. It’s like group therapy. Didn’t learn anything I couldn’t find online, but it helped nonetheless. Made it real as its something you can’t see. Symbolic as well since I committed my time.
        I also took Goat’s Rue (apologies recommended here forget who to thank), tumeric, dandelion root( briefly as it gave me a rash), raw garlic(mince and let sit for 10 minutes add to salad- raw to allow allicin full effect), cinnamon.
        My liver panel also came back completely healthy. I was told I had months in 2013. Same with kidneys. I started the transplant process but removed myself. I get lots of blood work. I was getting paracentisis done monthly ( drain fluid out of abdomen) So they noticed I had a vitamin D deficiency. Some studies link that with insulin resistance.
        I was not playing with diabetes. My heart is part teflon and pig valves. Blood glucose toys with all the organs. Not go. I owe it to the monster to be healthy.
        I took it down over Christmas and losing my Dad. Fuck no was it winning.
        Most important from what I have gleaned is lose visceral fat. Exercise is a must. I choose to see it as a blessing. Detected early enough so that I can make major changes. Was hard at first, but worth the effort. Didn’t know but my extreme insomnia was linked with it. Makes sense.
        Blah, blah, blah
        Seriously though if you know anyone who might be diabetic I cannot recommend attending the classes more. All insurance covers. Controlled diabetes saves a lot of money for them. Really helped.

        • Somebody says:

          I suggested the goat’s rue, glad it helped along with other things. The drug metformin is made from the same plant. Goat’s rue is a weaker version of metformin. Works for pre-diabetes and early type 2 diabetes, once you need insulin you need insulin.

          Congrats on all your test!! I guess the little one is stuck with you for a while. Somehow I don’t think she minds 😀

        • DeniseVB says:

          Great determination mothy, congrats on your efforts !

        • Constance says:

          Thanks for the info and congratulations. My computer is acting up so I’ll leave it at that.
