Morning Reads for July 12, 2017

Ed Hula is full of empty promises of postcards from far away places again, so you are stuck with me for the second day in a row.

State

Who cares?

Economists at George Mason U rank the states by fiscal health. Georgia comes in at #22, between Oregon and Texas, based on their fiscal solvency in five separate categories – – cash on hand, budgeting, long-term commitments, capability to expand, and unfunded pension and healthcare liabilities.

Florida comes in first, New Jersey last.

Found myself asking the following questions while watching Fox for the first time in a long time?

When did Tucker Carlson ditch the bow tie?
Why is this Jessie Waters guy dressed like a bellhop?
Do people’s really think Jay Sekulow is a “legal expert?”
Is Sean Hannity just a dumber Brian Kilmeade or is Brian Kilmeade just a dumber Sean Hannity?
Comparing Don Jr. to Fredo is really unfair to Fredo. Fredo at least knew how to run a casino. Not a question, more of an observation.

That first sentence shouldn’t have a question mark. What happened to the freaking edit button? Gah!

I watched for the first time in a while too. The Five (or 4 v. Juan as it should be called) seriously felt like it was being produced by RT. Dana Perino looks so uncomfortable; anytime her conscience looks to be yelling at her she realizes shes getting a big paycheck and then goes back to being numb. I’d love to see the commercial breaks. The 4 must be so winded after trying to blow out the flames of the Hindenburg.

As opposed to watching the panel of CNN Mensa Members like Marc Lamont Hill talking about “Mediocre Negroes”, I suppose?

Property taxes: a really bad taxpayer blame game going on today is the commissioner’s (millage determiners) attention diversion to the assessors (value determiners).
When they ease up on the assessor smoke, wait for the commish cry “we didn’t raise your taxes”.

Querry over Murray. Called it here yesterday.

Yes you did! Glad he’s out! Ok, let’s work on Djoker choking!

Ok. Murray – out; Djoker – quit; Cilic – still alive. Fed to play Berdych. Hmmmmm….I’m a little concerned there. But I think it’s Fed over Querry for number 19! Your thoughts Drew?

Cillic probably too much for ol Sam. Querry played out of his mind today and took advantage of Murray’s wonky hip. At the end of the day, though, Querry is just a better version of Isner: big serve, ok baseline game, nothing else of value. Cillic has looked good enough to exploit Querry’s lack of abilities outside of the serve.

Fed’s match against Raonic showed that Roger is still in peak form. Just absolutely abused that guy. If he plays like that against Berdych it’ll be another straight set win.

RUSSIA! RUSSIA! RUSSIA! Just popping in to say Hi, and to get y’all back onto this ongoing distraction, lefty obfuscation/smoke screen. Ignore the booming Trump economy (another historic high today), Americans suffering under the limited choices and high costs brought on by Obamacare which is now down to 141 issuers as compared to 281 just 2 years ago, the liberation of Mosul and reclaiming of Iraq by its Prime Minister, Prez Trump departing for Paris, today for meetings and Bastille Day celebrations with America’s oldest ally, etc. out the wazoo.

Carry on.

Wait. I’m confused. Do you want us to talk about Russia? Because no one in this thread seems to be talking about it except you. As for the economy, all I see is job growth largely in line with what we were seeing under Obama. As for Obamacare you’ve simply regurgitated some Paul Ryan talking point that has no basis in reality. As for Mosul, this was an offensive started under Obama and there was no strategic shift from Obama to Trump. So, if you’re gonna congratulate Trump on that, you should probably throw some appreciation Obama’s way. But tell… Read more »

I saw your Fredo comment above and decided to throw a fast ball across the plate. You swung, and your responses struck out. Trump was elected primarily because he is not a politician or part of the DC establishment. He and his family were not adept to the dirty tricks of entrenched operatives. A meeting arranged by a burned-out Australian publicist whose only client of note was John Denver, with the help of Fusion GPS, the Democrats’ oppositional research company. What could go wrong with that? A Republican candidate’s political-novice family member talking for a few minutes with someone from… Read more »

He and his family were not adept to the dirty tricks of entrenched operatives So we should give him a break because he’s an idiot? “Entrenched operatives” would have reported this email to the FBI, they certainly wouldn’t have responded with “I love it, especially later in the summer.” When someone tried to give Bush’s debate prep materials to the Gore campaign, the campaign contacted authorities. That’s what you do when an adverse foreign power contacts you about trying to influence the election. A meeting arranged by a burned-out Australian publicist If this guy is a huge nobody, then why… Read more »

ACP, how did I know you’d disagree totally? For the record, I am one of the original posters on Peach Pundit who migrated over here when GAPol was created. Hardly a “troll” – but you wouldn’t know that because you are a newcomer who enjoys insulting anyone with whom you disagree. Your rudeness is one of the reasons that I rarely post here any more. The entrenched operatives to whom I referred are Democrats and their hired-gun muck rakers at Fusion 365. The request for meeting was a bait and switch that turned out to be a conversation about adopting… Read more »
