    The Wall

    You are no doubt correct. Despite my screen identity (and I'm from the northern part of Jersey) I flunked cement overshoes 101 during my apprenticeship.

    The Wall

    If the mob had used Trump brand concrete to make cement overshoes no one would have ever died.

    How Did You Pick Your Profession?

    Friend of mine once said that his job was what he did, not who he was.

    “Knot” a cool pun: worst boat names ever

    Airgasm. A Capo 26 on Lake Michigan back in the 1980s.

    Question's surround Kavanaugh's accuser

    W.C. Fields allegedly said that he felt sorry for people who did not drink. When they got up in the morning that was as good as they were going to feel all day.

    Mindset of Political Compromise

    "mindset is conducive to campaigning, but not to governing" Political Scientists have long said that there is an electoral coalition and a governance coalition. The former consists of the people, interests, groups, money and other interests necessary to win an election. The latter consists of those interests, people and other resources necessary to govern effectively. The two are not identical and only partially overlap.

    I would love to see Cruz get his evangelical ass whooped

    Willie Nelson is headlining a fund raising concert for Beto. Some of his fans are going ballistic.

    4 corners; 2 bars, 2 churches. Dad would take mom and kids to church and kill the hour at the bar. True in MKE, true where I grew up in NJ.

    When We All Vote

    That's truer than one might imagine. Former Waukesha County clerk (locally it is known as Walkersha because of its overwhelming support for Scott Walker) often had issues with computer counts, ballot boxes lost for awhile, etc.. Don't have the numbers handy and I'm too lazy to look them up, but Mother Theresa could not win an election in Waukesha County if she ran as a Democrat.

    When We All Vote

    Same thing in WI. Every election the right wing claims that there are bus loads of "those" people being bused in from Illinois to vote. Never seen one of those buses. And if they do exist they are not very effective since the GOP owns all 3 branches of the state government. This despite the Dems getting more votes for legislative seats than the Repubs. Gerrymander anyone?

    Old Sails

    My old boat, now on its 4th owner, still has the #3 jib from when I bought the boat new in 1983
  15. In the past 30 or so years, the center has moved well to the right.
