      OMG, can they put him in Canadian jail? That would be lovely.

      • OneYieldRegular

        Too lovely even. I’m waiting for him to end up in Mexican jail.

          What about a Turkish jail?

        Trump is our problem, Canadian prisoners shouldn’t have to share their common room time with him.

    Allow me to add Charles Blow’s op-ed to the Wonkagenda for today. My comment:

    “I cannot help but look at the growing estimates of the personal costs of
    the parasitic Trump family along side his desire to shutter the
    Endowments for the Arts and Humanities. It looks like he and his family
    will end up costing the American taxpayer more than the annual budgets
    of those agencies combined. I guess it’s the way of the world these days
    that promoting beauty, inspiration, and the finer things in life for
    all Americans will be dropped in favor of promoting the greed,
    indulgence, and heedlessness of one wealthy family.”

  • Lizzietish81

    When I arrived in Scotland I had a couple of Euros from my stopover in Ireland. The Lady at the shop said in a snide voice “No we don’t use those here” kind of the same way I say “No, we don’t have universal health here”

    • Latverian Diplomat

      As I understand it “We don’t use those here” is also what the Scots say about fresh green vegetables.

    • The Wanderer

      At least she didn’t say “You’ll have had your tea.”

  • Latverian Diplomat

    With all due respect to Janet Yellin, I think an interest rate hike is premature. We could use some time running the economy at “full employment”.

    But any consequences from that will pale in comparison to the shit show that is Trump’s economic policies.

    • artem1s

      could be to encourage movement of money into the bond market in preparation for the next big stock market collapse. Also too, the fed is going to need some leverage to slow down the that next stock market collapse. Although I suppose we could actually see a negative federal rate the next time the robber barons crash the banks. fun times!

  • Sardonicuss

    Umm..in regard to you dropping those half-me sized tigers into my area repeatedly – could you not? – Dog

  • DoILookAmused2u? Résistance☨

    Good news, Trump will be in Mar-a-lago again, so… he’s funneling money into his own pocket, and we’re not wasting it on things like EPA cleanups or Great Lakes restoration.

        i was supposed to fly to virginia tomorrow for a conference. every five minutes: your flight have been cancelled, you’ve been rebooked. your flight has been cancelled, you’ve been rebooked. several rebookings later we’re scheduled to arrive wednesday at noon (that flight will probably be cancelled as well, and anyway the conference ends thursday at noon. i suppose dealing with travel issues is more entertaining than actually working this morning, though.

      Did we finally get that upgrade to St. Patrick’s Week?

  • Michael R

    Recap of what a hypocritical asshole Kellyanne Conway is :

    Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, spent the primary season as a cable news pundit attacking Trump for his “unpresidential” and “vulgar” language, for having “built a lot of his business on the backs of the little guy,” and for not releasing his tax returns. Conway’s previous lines of criticism are similar to charges the Clinton campaign has levied to admonish the Republican candidate.

  • Oblios_Cap

    Trump’s budget will be a referendum on the foundations of government and an all-out assault on those filthy poors.

    Mark 14:7
    King James Version (KJV)

    7 For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good:
    Apparently Trump has found a solution to the poors problem.

    • therblig

      he’ll put the “con” in “conscription”

  • janecita
    • Latverian Diplomat

      I get that the right are misogynists, but doesn’t repealing domestic violence protections give the game away? There’s no pretending you care about families and children when you come out as pro-wifebeater.

      • Oblios_Cap

        God says it’s alright, and that’s all you need to know.

  • therblig

    i don’t mind my microwave watching me, i just wish it would stop judging me.

    • mancityRed6

      “nachos, again?”
      “yes, dammit!”

      • therblig

        the talking scale is even worse. last time i weighed myself, it said, “one at a time, please”

  • Chadwells

    That’s how KaC puts her makeup on in the morning….she sticks her ugly meth face in the microwave and cooks it for 2 minutes on high.

    • And then the Microwave tells the CIA

      • Chadwells

        Exactly!!!!

  • Vagenda and Pee-ara

    So I look at Reuters presidential approval poll every week, mainly because I want to watch Trump’s approval ratings drop to Bush/Cheney levels of bad. Meanwhile, the fucker’s approval rating went UP this week. Who looks at that moron and says “damn, he’s good at presidenting?”

    http://polling.reuters.com/#!poll/CP3_2/type/smallest/dates/20170120-20170310/collapsed/true/spotlight/1

        • YoBunnyBunny

          Hmmm… I wonder… I’ve declined many a phone call from wild area codes for the past couple of weeks… Wonder if those were the pollers??? Anywho…

    • mardam422

      What did he do in the last week that has the effect of increasing his approval rating?

      • Vagenda and Pee-ara

        Why is his approval rating HIGHER than his disapproval rating? He’s an idiot. Who can’t see that? I mean, I know he has overwhelming support among Republicans, but who changed their minds about the moron this week? The few Republicans who did not like him last month?

      • cmd resistor

        created eleventy million jobs, awkwardly greeted a kid at a White House Tour, uncovered Obummer’s plot to wiretap him, um, I think maybe he defeated ISIS?

      • Nothing.

        That apparently is the new gold standard.

    • Tacoclamgenda

      Weird, I just read a headline this morning about expecting his ratings to go up for a while. Couldn’t even think about reading it or I’d post link.

    Geert knows about stuck noses. If only Donald would tweet his thanks for Geert’s brown nose job.

    Rep. Steve King announced his support of the Dutch Donald Trump, Geert Wilders, in a simple 140 character admission of racism as he tries to stick his nose into a contentious election in the Netherlands. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/59c60a437cd9c1f80a81bd2b552e7b759e09087e1189263f6fba2daeb0439722.jpg

          • LucindathePook

            Yep, with half-stone increments.

          • Cousin Itt de La Résistance

            Isn’t half a stone still a stone, technically?

    Your Internet service provider knows a lot about you: the webpages you visit, the things you purchase, the people you talk to, and more. Last year, the federal government updated rules to ensure that the companies that act as gatekeepers to the Internet can’t compromise your privacy to make a profit. Those rules are set to go into effect this year.

    Now some members of Congress are trying to change that.

    Using a little-known tool called a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution, some lawmakers want to not only repeal your privacy protections but also effectively prohibit the FCC from creating similar rules in the future. That could leave consumers without a federal agency to protect online privacy rights.

    We need to let our representatives in Congress know that they can’t put ISPs’ demands ahead of their constituents’ privacy. Please call your lawmakers today and tell them to oppose the CRA resolution to repeal the FCC’s privacy rules.

    OT, 1) From the Guardian: Janice Phelps, a 60-year-old disabled factory worker in Evansville, Indiana, knows how expensive healthcare is. Each month, shots for her severe asthma cost $3,000. Quarterly injections for knee pain cost $3,200. Medication for depression costs $900. She has had seven back surgeries, two shoulder surgeries, and two knee surgeries since 1985. The largest public health programs in America – Medicaid and Medicare, which aid the poor and the elderly – paid for nearly all of it. aid the poor and the elderly – paid for nearly all of it.
    “I’m all in favor of repealing it,” she said about Republicans’ push to do away with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), popularly known as Obamacare. But, she said, when you talk about cutting Medicaid: “I don’t agree with that at all.”

      And it’s the first day back to work after Daylight Savings time, so it was extra-dark when leaving the house @ the stupid early time I do (I CTA it downtown and start a 7am) in addition to being colder and snowier than it has been in like 2+ months.

      At least the birds found the bird feeder I put up in the new backyard this weekend, so they will have full little bellies when trying to keep up with the temperature swings.

  • Antonin Dvorak

    I watched an old episode of the game show Card Sharks (I believe from the late 70’s) over the weekend. One of the questions was:
    “Out of 100 people surveyed; how many would accept a dinner invitation to San Clemente from Richard Nixon?”

    Answer: 81 out of 100 would accept

    What did you guess?

    • mancityRed6

      that there would be a decimal point somewhere in that first number

    • I would go to ask him how he did it.

    • janecita

      I guessed 30, not even close.

    GOP rank and file are doing their part to undermine the CBO now. Super!

        • Rick Hill

          I think they feel that America will always be here. If this keeps up, I doubt that will be the case

          • To be honest at this stage I think we can assume that at least some of them care fuck all for America. Kinda how modern CEOs give fuck all for the future of their companies.

      “The White House announced today, following inquiries from the media, that the President has donated his first month’s salary, as promised. The beneficiary is The Tru-Ban Legal Defense Fund, a recently incorporated non-profit, registered in Florida, with a mailing address at 6671 W Indiantown Rd, Jupiter, Florida. An employee contacted at a phone listed for the address provided few additional details, stating, “Yo, I just got in, an’ it’s busy already. Gotta go.”

  • Reximus

    This whole CIA microwave-spy talk confirms to me that Wikileaks is taking leak orders from Trump…

    Two days before it becomes known that the FBI had found ‘peculiar coms’ between Trump Tower and dodgy Russian money-laundering Alfa Bank, Wikileaks dumps that the CIA can spoof exactly that kind of communication?

    And then Trump-friendly Farage goes to see Assange on thursday to place the next WH request…

    • Ayep. It is time for the left to admit it has been duped and good.
      Funny thing, I never trusted Assmange because /Libertarian. The Libertarians did infiltrate the GOP in an effort to bring it down since no one would take them seriously (Hullo, tea party!) but they failed to infiltrate the left so much because fucking herd of cats. This was their work around for that.

      • TJ Barke

        Well apart from legal weed and being antiwar they have no values compatible with the left.

        • They are fine with war, so long as we don’t go over there and do any warring. Which I actually agree with. But I think if push came to shove you’d find they are fine with war over there also, so long as it was only to protect money interests and not to help any dirty others

          Edit: Should stipulate for our Not American brethren: Little l libertarian as opposed to Big L. Not that I personally see a great big difference, but I am told there is too one and it is VAST so, going to accept that.

          • Old Man Yells at Cloud

            In other words, killing brown people around the world is fine with them as long as they are not inconvenienced by having to go or pay taxes to cover the costs or help the vets or their widows and orphans. And for the monied ones, of course they will take the juicy DOD contracts.

        Working at home today so I think I’ll put on some other westerns. I like a few of Clint’s movies, but, like Polanski’s Piano, which I think is very good, really dislike Clint for his tone deafness and Polanski because we all know why.

        As far as the left being duped, I blame our anachronistic election methods, the EC, more than not seeing the Russians in play. Pretty sure we were all up to speed last year.

    • SpideySenser

      Well that sucks, hopefully you’ll get a satisfactory answer from recruiter.

        It won’t be satisfactory. There’s no way they can take their requirements and explain how my resume doesn’t meet them. I’m tired to death of endless rounds of “You’re only 96% what we wanted, that just isn’t close enough.”

        • memzilla Ω

          Sorry, but as an ex-recruiter, what happened was, you were their safety candidate and the one they wanted was dithering and dathering about whether to take the counter-offer his current job gave him.

          • Phoenixdoglover

            Yup. Most likely explanation if you don’t get a quick call. From personal experience, I can say, it really sucks when you are No. 2.

            [edit: not that 2]

          • Yr. Gma

            That’s probably the most likely explanation. I used to be responsible for hiring in my department (we could hold dept meetings in a phone booth–when those existed.) I HATED that part of the job, especially when I had to tell the ones I didn’t hire that they weren’t getting the job. I always had a favorite in mind, and a possible second, and I felt dishonest letting the second hang in the wind while the favorite dithered. I feel for you so much.

            NO, you can’t!! You gotta have everything coming in the door or no way!! No training, no learning, no nothing! It doesn’t matter how many times my resume says “Got up to speed and learned blah blah”, they just won’t consider it. Hell, even if I did exactly what they wanted but it just a couple years ago, that’s too long ago and not up to date so GET OUT!!!

          • SpideySenser

      Birthday song we sing to Sunny the Sunbeam yearly
      (To tune of “Today is Cindy’s BIrthday,” by Johnny Crawford)
      He doesn’t like to boast
      Does his job and makes the toast
      Put another slice of bread
      In the hole upon his head
      He’s been going strong for 60 years
      For Pook and Lucinda
      Today is Sunny’s birthday.

    Normally I don’t comment on other people’s physical appearance, no matter how much I dislike them. But Kellyanne makes this irresistible: She’s living proof that once women reach a certain age, they should ease up on the mascara.

    I am an Olds who insists on paper statements from my bank, just so I have non-digital proof that I have money there. Maybe that’s why I never understood Bitcoin, no how, no way. I mean I understand nothing about it. What the fuck is it? Who makes it? Who oversees it? Who distributes it? And why is it better than real money?

    I tried looking all that shit up, I really did. But none of it made any sense to me, and finally I just gave up.

      “And why is it better than real money?”

      It isn’t, and that’s all you really need to know. It was designed by the kind of libertarian goldbugs who think we’re always living in Germany in 1923, and that the state-issued currencies they hate so much are always on the brink of collapse. Needless to say, the fact that hyperinflation of the kind the Weimar Republic experienced is in fact extremely rare and only happens under extraordinary circumstances (like losing a world war and being forced to pay for the damage you caused) does not have any impact on their beliefs. Think of them as monetary doomsday preppers. And given that BitCoins aren’t backed up by any state, its value is entirely dependent upon the confidence buyers have in it, meaning that it really is a currency that could collapse at any given moment.

    Loads of my household appliances sing to me when they’ve finished their work. I’m ok with a beep- or even a triple beep- on the microwave, but I don’t need it’s whiny self beeping at me every fucking minute after. Also too, shut the fuck up with the singing washing machine and tumble dryer. Shut up. I don’t care to hear you!

    Is it possible to buy white goods that are silent? Or to turn off the beeps?

    ETA- I do talk to my appliances. And what I say is SHUT THE FUCK UP!

    • Sophia

    Hey, woah now. Repealing the ACA will destroy Medicaid, not Medicare (well, not directly). They’re named similarly to increase confusion, but they are very much not the same.

  • Hey Thanks for the mention of Scotland there, we may be small, but we’re dynamic: And we’re about to dismantle a nuclear state…
    Come and visit, American friends!

      Once upon a time, I was in the US Navy, stationed at Dunoon. Once in awhile I had to go into Glasgow to fetch certain supplies not available in a timely fashion through the navy supply line.

      One miserable, rainy shitty November afternoon in Glasgow, my “procuring’ done, I noticed it was ten till two. Knowing that the Queen’s Hour was about to start, which means bars stop, I ducked into the nearest pub for fortification purposes.

      “A double scotch, please.”
      “Excuse me – are you a Yank? sez the man to my right.
      *Why, yes. Yes I am.”
      “Barkeeper! This man’s drinks on me!”

      Long story short, at least 5 or 6 people at the bar (INCLUDING THE BARMAN HIMSELF!) bought me drinks. I slammed at least ten drinks in ten minutes, plus a couple more minutes because the barman locked the door but didn’t kick anybody out.

      God bless Scotland, home of the brave! and good luck on your Independence vote.

      • Very pleased about all of that Subliberal, I don’t know how Scotland became so damned friendly, but it’s definitely a thing. Having that idea about ourselves feeds into our independence movement, which is based on strongly liberal aspirations like a strictly residential qualification to be “Scottish”, “refugees welcome”, EU citizenship, renewables, open borders, universal free healthcare OF COURSE, and despising the tory kleptocracy.

        But the almost entirely non-Scottish owned press will present our case as “nationalist” identity politics, anti-English, a strictly SNP thing, a thing owned by Nicola Sturgeon, and always harmful to the interests of Scottish people. But because we’ve already been through this, we’ve learned about them.

        If you’ve got any illusions about the BBC, which is simply the British state broadcasting system, have a look at this excellent documentary, which shows how they systematically undermined the case for independence, on order from their political masters in London.
        It also gives a flavour of the current Scottish Independence movement, with some of its interesting characters beyond Ms Sturgeon.

        We’re TOTALLY looking forward to being visited by #presidentbawbag, the #SCROTUS, later this year. We really look forward to letting him know how we feel. Again.

    All that crepey skin with the giraffe-looking false eyelashes just don’t mix well. It’s a look that screams, “I’m trying to be young and sexy with these fake eyelashes,” but the cryptkeeper skin screams, “older in appearance than chronological age.” Has this woman ever heard of serums and moisturizers? Her hair is hideous and her clothes are like Halloween costumes. DC must be loaded with stylists. Why doesn’t she find one?

    I know it’s not nice to make fun of people, but this one has put herself in the spotlight and flaunted her outrageous lies. So she’s fair game.

    When Siri in my iPhone arises unbidden, I often tell it to shut up and/or fuck off. This makes me wince because I have a flesh-and-blood friend named Siri, whom I’ve known for decades.

    Most mornings oatmeal is just oatmeal, but some mornings I’m able to get porn – (after removing the bowl from the microwave!) Unfortunately – it’s Chinese porn (with subtitles!)…from circa 1972. The hair-styles are just…silly. It always makes me late to work, though.
