    Good Morning Everybody and Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

    New Yorkers should have no problem finding a place to celebrate. Be Irish today Anthony and have fun. 🙂

    ==

    The Big Apple is overflowing with more Irish pubs per capita than any city in the US — and is the fifth best place to party on St. Patrick’s Day, according to a new WalletHub analysis of 200 American cities

    There are 203 Irish bars and eateries throughout the city — or about .035 per person, according to the credit-scoring website.

      Thanks Dora! My mission today is to get through Times Square without incident when I come home from my out of town office. Last year someone vomited on my shoes on the subway. This isn’t exactly a fun day for anyone who lives here lol.

        I know what you mean. I’ve been to a few of those parades myself and thing do get a bit rowdy after a few hours. Be safe.

        I do not miss working downtown and having to take the metro home on shamrock day. The K street lobbyists/locusts and capital hill howling monkeys 🐒 were the worst along with the overrated Georgetown contingent . Although I will say it was always amusing to see just how much the D.C. And fed workers celebrated. Parties, decorated doors and hallways, long lunches at bars. I was often the only one not decked out from head to toe. I often wore copper with just a hint of green ( I have no orange it brings out the red undertones in my hair in the worst way and makes me look like an anemic leprechaun). I would tell people I was supporting a united 🇮🇪. Given what they considered to be very Irish 🍀 surname it was fun to watch their heads implode. If I was in a really devilish mood I would say my ancestors were Jacobites that simply stopped off in Ireland long enough to alter the spelling before heading to the new world.

    why is that people in DC do not learn this lesson. Those who get involved or coverup for the Clintons either die or suffer public disgrace?

    this is a must read.
    McCabe threatens to take people down. hey buddy go for it.
    this whole thing is about a lot more than politics. anyone remember the difference between right and wrong?

    The “Gate of Gates”. Sounds exciting.

    ====

    The Reckoning of the FBI Has Begun

    Friday’s firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history.

    Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the Inspector General’s reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the “Gate of Gates.”

    Is he actually losing his pension? I’ve read it’s only a %.

    • swanspirit says:

      He is ticked off about something, so that’s good.😎

    • Somebody says:

      It’s complicated. People are assuming he’s under the old federal pension, but he’s not. The pension plan changed in 1984. The new plan is basically a 401k and social security. Obviously he’s not eligible for social security yet……so under the new plan if you put in enough years to retire you get a stipend that in essence acts as your social security until you are eligible……it’s a little more complicated than that, but in a nut shell that explains it.

      He will lose that stipend, he will NOT lose his social security that he’s paid into all these years. So when he’s old enough he’ll get social security.

      Now as for his 401k. Technically he should be able to keep that and I bet it’s pretty hefty given his position and salary. The government matches up to a certain percentage, McCabe was senior executive level so the match may well be even more generous. Obviously he’s not old enough to tap into his fund without paying steep penalties, so no matter how big it is, it’s of no use to him now.

      My husband said if McCabe is formally charged with profiting from his position or some other various charges he indeed could lose his 401k. Right now the government is in control of his 401k, it takes a couple of months of paperwork shuffle to wrest control of it. I assume he’s planning to transfer it all out of control of Uncle Sam, if he doesn’t he’s a fool. If he transfers it to a standard 401k retirement fund instead of his thrift government fund it will be protected and he’ll get his entire balance. If instead he opts to take disbursements when he’s old enough, he’s gambling with it. So once again Andy is in beat the clock mode.

      For the immediate future, until he’s a few years older Andy will need to find a job. I don’t think he ever intended not to work, even if he hadn’t been fired. I’m sure he and his wife put aside a nice rainy day fund out of the bribe money his wife got from the Clinton’s via Terry McCauliffe, if they didn’t then too bad they were just fools. Of course they can sell their 1.8 million dollar house and move somewhere more affordable and Andy can sell his Porsche. They’ll be just fine, may have to adjust their standard of living….boo hoo NOT.

        Thanks. I was overwhelmed following bits and pieces.

        D.c. Is based on the federal system as it was once entirely under the Feds. The breakup for home rule changed some aspects but most closely mirror on another. If there are any fees, fines or other expenses the Feds may, just may, be able to skimOff the top of any money piles if he does not pay them outright and he gets what is left. I have seen this happen to higher level D.C. People who were canned but each case is different.

        In the end, it sounds better to let people think he gets nothing, but in fact he will be better off than most of us unless he and wifely we really stupid with their wealth. And of course, if he does not go to work for CNN, h can always head to Richmond. The new Virginia governor and the lt. governor have both taken on quite a few of the political favored people obarry gave jobs to at the Feds that were getting $$$ way over their pay grade over the past year.

    Wouldn’t it be great if the Don Jr. divorce was just a magnificent squirrel to illuminate and distract the talking heads. They are probably on overload as it is. No way they will be able to hide derangement. I am tempted to watch the view on monday just to see behar come completely undone.

    You’re doing St Patrick’s Day all wrong! Experts reveal drinkers’ Irish tipple mistakes – including serving whiskey on the rocks and sipping the head on Guinness (and how to REALLY enjoy them)

    EXCLUSIVE: Experts have revealed best way to enjoy St Patrick’s Day tipples

    Whiskey should be enjoyed with beer and served in a tulip-shaped wine glass

    Baileys should be kept in the fridge and drunk from chilled glass

    Irish coffee needs plenty of sugar to make sure the cream floats

    to the people who are so upset about McCabe’s firing. it is not about politics it is about right and wrong. Maybe if you think about the Sheriff of Nottingham, you will understand

        Sorry you stupid hitch he would then come under regular civil service rules and need to work 30 years not 20. I can’t see Andy slinging coffee and answering phones for ten years. Tragically I could see him running for Congress in a deep blue district, he would only need to serve two term I believe, maybe three…..but they get double or triple count on their years.

        • DeniseVB says:

          You said the retirement rules changed in 1984, so that explains the years I worked for the fed in the late 60’s/early 70’s were a giant blank on my SS earning statement? When I left govt service, they handed me a check, I was clueless about it, thought it was a parting “gift”. Why didn’t they just roll it over into Social Security then? Scary to think, brains like mine worked in gov’t, LOL !

      Andrea Mitchell always creeped me out, even when I was a liberal. She’s just so snotty.

    I am wearing my St Paddy’s day shirt
    it has a tree, the branches are the colors of the American flag. red and white stripes with some a field of blue with white stars. The roots are green and white and orange.
    It reads
    American grown with Irish roots.
    as you can tell I am proud of it
