This looks so good for lunch ?? [tasty.co]
mcgeo52 comments on Sep 14, 2018:
A local market/deli here in Long Beach makes a really good caprese sandwich. I've known the manager for a few years (I believe since before she started there). One day she was there and heard me order a caprese. She asked if I liked avocado? I told her I love avocado. She just looked at the young lady making my sandwich, grinned and exchanged nods with her. Yeah, avocado on a caprese sandwich is good stuff. The one thing they left off the recipe posted here is the balsamic glaze.

Intimidation
mcgeo52 comments on Sep 14, 2018:
I once took on Harvard when they had one of my T-shirt designs pulled off of CafePress. Details are at http://interestingtimes.info/2006q1/20060601.html. After I talked with their outside counsel it took them less than 24 hours to back down. I was talking with my friend who had assisted me with the legal research for the case and asked him why they had even bothered? He said, "They thought they were going to intimidate you." I asked, "What?" He was halfway through repeating his answer when he started laughing. That's not to say I have never been intimidated, just that it doesn't happen easily.

Reminds me of legendary ukulele player, Bill Tapia. I was fortunate enough to have a front row seat to see him play at his 101st birthday concert. He wasn't the guest artist. He was the show, for an hour and a half and still going strong. Playing a musical instrument has many benefits.

Nice painting. I had not had anything framed for a few years until earlier this year. I was shopping for a frame for piece I was entering in an exhibit. The price of frames has become completely outrageous. @Chalupacabe makes an excellent point about standard dimensions. Ikea sells some reasonably priced frames, but they are for European standard dimension (e.g., A5). My print was a US standard 11" x 17".

NY also has a state RICO Act, and every financial transaction tRump was involved in comes under their jurisdiction if it involved any foreign funds at all, since they all clear through the NY branch of the fed. If tRump doesn't cut a deal with the feds, the state of NY will take every penny that the Trump Organization has, including all real property, stocks and other investments, cash, everything. This is the main reason I am very confident that tRump will resign.

mcgeo52 comments on Sep 11, 2018:
There is a lot more to this than what was shown in 1:50. A whole lot. And it will be coming out. Just one small point that came up here involved Ivana Trump, and the fact that she was involved with trump at the time he began to deal with the Russian mob. A friend on Facebook posted: "My father was born in Czechoslovakia, and, consequently, I was raised in the American Czech Underground fighting against the Soviet Mafia, who stole my Grandfather's property, and then killed him. I wonder if our journalists will get around to the fact that Trump's first wife, Soviet Czech born KGB operative, was the one who turned Trump and connected him to the KGB Soviet Mafia. Know that there is not, and has never been, a difference between the Soviets, the KGB, and the "Russian Mafia". These life long criminals should NOT be mistaken for the Russian people; who have been victims of such criminals for hundreds of years." Then there is the KGB operation that I posted an article about previously https://agnostic.com/post/165055/overall-we-rate-the-epoch-times-right-center-biased-and-high-for-factual-reporting-about-usa-news. It was set up to traffic in and use underage girls for kompromat. I find it almost impossible to believe that the Trump Modeling Agency was not tied to that operation. Oh, yeah. There is plenty more that will be coming out.

"Just obey the law"? How many times have I gone to court to beat bogus traffic tickets? I've lost count, but it has been at least two dozen. And then there was the time I was arrested for exercising my First Amendment rights and handing out flyers on a public sidewalk. That one was so bogus that the City Prosecutor refused to take it to court and the city settled with me rather than go to court. And I'm an older white guy. I was 60 when they arrested me with the flyers. I have heard from friends of mine their horror stories bout driving while black, or riding a bicycle while black. There is nothing in the law requiring anyone to be white. Just sue the bastards when they violate your rights is more like it. BTW, in case you are wondering, the flyers were welcoming the TED Conference attendees to Long Beach and offering them discounts at local restaurants. Obviously hateful and seditious literature.

Very good article. "The latter discourse assumes that everything within scientific rationality must be seen as beneficial to humankind. So Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and algorithms – concepts which are largely unintelligible to most citizens – must be seen as forces for progress." The interesting thing is that those of us who have the best grasp on the concepts of Big Data and AI are probably the most skeptical about its "benefits".

What is your current guess for how long before we are rid of tRump?
mcgeo52 comments on Sep 6, 2018:
We are looking at a number of factors. Two key people to watch are Pence and Ryan. If you see both of them resign or be removed from office, expect tRump to resign very shortly thereafter. Don't be shocked if it happens before the end of the year. The reason they will be gone is that Robert Mueller is too much a patriot to see two Presidents leave office in disgrace back to back. If it is obvious that the Dems will control the House as of January, it doesn't make sense for the Republicans to try to hold onto tRump. If there is even a hint that Mueller will have enough hard evidence that the Senate will have to convict, he will also have enough on Pence that Pence will resign. With Pence and tRump gone, the Speaker of the House would become President. With the Dems in control of the House odds are that the Speaker would not be a Republican (although I have a scenario where that actually makes sense). In the situation described above, the only way the Republicans can guarantee that they will hold the White House until 2020 is to replace tRump and Pence before January. It's really fairly simple political calculus. Besides, by that point the Republicans should realize just how toxic trump is for their party.
History will remember.

Sorry to hear you are going through this. We went through it with my father about ten years after losing my mother very unexpectedly. I notice you end by commenting on your stress and your fear of losing her. Fearing that loss is not serving you well. The loss is coming. Fear won't stop it. Fear will only stop you from relaxing and celebrating the time you have left with her. Throw a party to let her know how much you, your family, and her friends love and appreciate her. She won't get to hear it at her funeral. Find out if there is anything on her bucket list that would be practical to; if so, do it. Get the most out of the time you have left with her. You can't do that while being afraid. The loss is coming, but it's not here yet.
