Just this guy, you know. Extra credit identifying that one.

You could describe me as a recovering Southern Baptist. Surprisingly, given my background, my politics tend toward progressive.

I am a vegetarian and don't drink, smoke, or do drugs. I'm not much movies, but do enjoy live theater. I am a singer/songwriter, sometimes recording engineer, and also host a weekly open mic in Long Beach.

Other hobbies include law (I am not an attorney) and graphic arts.

Professionally, I have programmed computers, developed web sites, and developed and used cutting edge technology marketing.

Guess I'm just your basic 21st century Renaissance dude.

And as my late friend, Roz Larman, once told her radio audience, "All this, ladies, and he cooks, too."

The Loser asks the court to impound the ballots and sites chain of custody issues? If I'm the judge in that case I politely point out to the attorney bringing the motion that if the chain of custody issue is valid that impounding the ballots is a complete waste of time, and by the way, you just earned thirty days in the county jail for contempt for even bringing such a stupid motion.

mcgeo52 comments on Nov 24, 2018:
I recently replied to a poll taken by my U.S. Representative about the most important issue we need to address. He had the standard list including health care, education, jobs, immigration, gun violence, etc. I said that, while I agreed that the items on the list deserved attention, I thought the most important item was probably not even on his radar. I think the single most important thing that Congress should try to do is to reinstate the fairness doctrine. Many people I have known for years, if not decades, and that I know to be fundamentally good people, are impossible to have a reasonable conversation with because they are working from a completely different set of "facts". Until our media gives us some common ground to work from we will never solve many of our problems, and the ones we do solve will require much more effort than they should.

@Surfpirate, you posting this with the picture of the palm tree reminded me of about 40 years ago when I lived in Ventura County. I was in line at the Safeway and someone in line in front of me had a bottle of the store brand 1,000 Islands dressing. The picture with the palm trees on the label cracked me up. Talk about clueless.

mcgeo52 comments on Nov 17, 2018:
Ideally tRump will be gone before the end of this year, and Pence with him [fn1]. I suspect Ryan will also be gone [fn2]. That means the new speaker will probably be a Republican, but this is where it gets interesting. The Republicans may well not be able to get 218 votes for any one person. The Democrats could actually nominate a moderate Republican that they could work with. With 24 Republicans voting with them, they could choose the next President. I would really it rather be a moderate Republican instead of Hillary. Hillary is far to divisive a figure and our country needs healing, not further division. Besides, a Republican could set about undoing a lot of what tRump has done with much less resistance from McConnell (assuming he is still there, which he may not be [fn3]). Stock up on popcorn, boys and girls, the rest of this year is going to be very interesting. _____ **Footnotes** fn1: * it should be obvious that: • tRump has become toxic for the Republicans; Orange County, California, went completely blue this year. (In related news, meteorologists are saying global warming may be sufficient to thaw Hell out within the next two to three years.) • enough Republican Senators are up for re-election in 2020 that impeachment charges with strong evidence against tRump brought six months before the election will force the Republicans to vote tRump out or be voted out themselves. • with the indictments coming out, even McConnell will realize that the Democrats will be able to remove Pence and tRump before the 2020 election and put their Speaker into the White House. • the only way for the Republicans to prevent the Democrats from taking the White House by impeachment is to dump tRump while the Republicans still control the House. fn2: Ryan was very much aware of the Russian influence in the 2016 election. fn3: So was McConnell.
Well they did screw up the vote and the recount proved it but still not enough for me to come ahead ...

mcgeo52 comments on Oct 29, 2018:
@ of-the-mountain, I think you are confusing tRump, the symptom, with the reality of who controls our country, the disease. "The media" is over 95% controlled by half a dozen corporations, all of which benefit from tRump's policies. If you are not familiar with it, research the Business Plot, an attempted coup in 1933 thwarted by Gen. Smedley Butler, USMC, Ret. The other thing to research, again assuming you are not familiar with it, is the Powell Memo published August 23, 1971. The people who commissioned and implemented it were the heirs (in some cases literally bloodline heirs, in other cases only ideological heirs) of the people behind the Business Plot. One of the objectives set forth in the Powell Memo was control of the media. What I would find beyond belief would be the media telling, showing, or calling out trump and his republican cohorts as Fascists.

This is beautiful. To sum up what is happening in DC right now: Grassley and McConnell are playing checkers, Avenatti is playing chess, Mueller is play go, in three dimensions, and Trump is still trying to learn tic-tac-toe. I'm with Avenatti. Let's have a real investigation done by the FBI, not the sham that was done to whitewash Kavanaugh. When the FBI reports that Kavanaugh perjured himself in his testimony to the Senate, we need to take to the streets demanding the resignations of Kavanaugh, Grassley, and McConnell.

He perjured himself regarding his high school days, his college days, and his time in the Bush II White House. The last is the most troubling because there is absolute evidence he was guilty of felonies regarding stolen property in that position, and he lied about it under oath to the Senate in his original confirmation hearing, as well as to the Judiciary Committee in his latest hearing. What is even more troubling is the fact that the Republicans KNEW that they were railroading a perjurer on to the Supreme Court. Mitch McConnell is a treasonous, unprincipled, sorry excuse for a human who has done more damage to his state than any post-Civil War carpetbagger ever did.
