Sometimes, I have to wait for a woman to say what I want to, or else some liberal will picket my house and insist I be beat up and/or intimidated in public.
Because they're so polite and civil.

My recap of Kavanaugh stuff I tweeted earlier. Get your vomit bags ready.
We created this, and now we're going to keep it on life support.
Politics 1, Truth unimportant.
If you're not disgusted, you are not just part of the problem, you're the problem.
Hirino just one upped Feinstein for coming out of this looking the worst. Incredibly stupid, out of touch. Thinks she can get away with anything because no one dare attack a woman of ethnicity.
Guess what sister, as a color and gender blind person, I only see you as a terrible human being. And I ain't afraid to tell you that. Mama didn't raise me to have an ounce of patience with fools or hacks.
I am not the first to say this, but it's nice to see Graham has developed a backbone so soon after agreeing with every word spoken the late John McCain, no matter how wishy washy or lacking in agreement with what McCain said last week or last month.
That's different. He's a liberal, so shut the hell up.

The Rambling son, who is in AP classes at the "regular" high school in addition to his normal charter school schedule, seemed shocked when I told him if he was having trouble with his calculus (I took 3 semesters of math in college and never saw anything like the crap they have him doing) he should ask the teacher for some help. He asked me if he should email them and ask for an appointment, and I told him to try, you know, just talking to him/her before or after class. After all, I said, that's what they are there for and paid to do.
He acted as if this was some sort of rebellious, outlandish notion. He gave me that, "geez Dad, that seems like a crazy idea" look. Sure enough, after 5 minutes of one on one time, he understood the concept and moved on.
I'm not sure what it is, but this age group seems to have close to no grasp of what was painfully apparent to us at their age, or even much younger. Yet, I have little doubt they are far more intelligent on all things technology and class related.

So funny to read the Nationals proudly announcing their agreement with Fresno.
Last affiliate to find a home, so neither had a choice. Everyone knows it was their worst case scenario.
On a related note, I am waiting here to find out how the Rambling wife's procedure went, so I'm kinda bored. I meandered over to a message board and read through thoughts about the Brewers' AAA team location. One person said it was a bit overrated, because it hardly ever happens that they need someone from AAA right away.
The irony to that? At least a dozen times this season, Counsell has said in his postgame presser "we will have to make a move before tomorrow." Sometimes that has been at midnight and the game the next day is at 1.
Sometimes, it's hard to believe how little attention fans pay to what is going on. These are the same ones who insist they are experts on all things happening in the organization. In reality, clueless is probably a kind description.
By the way, not a single person said San Antonio was a possibility, despite the fact almost every AAA city without an agreement was brought up.

If it wasn't so sad, it'd be a sitcom.
However, there's nothing funny about trying to ruin a man with a laughable accusation after 35+ years. Given its similarity to the Clarence Thomas debacle, it's kind of strange to see the Dems already programming reruns in so early in the season...
Only in the world of the left is due process considered unnecessary and sexist. There's a reason the presumption of innocence exists. There's also a reason political tomfoolery exists. Those 2 things are in direct conflict with each other.
Because that's the way the Dems want it. Never forget, they not only hate you, they'd prefer you to be dead or in jail.

We've gone from "Trump collusion with Russia" to "you can't release those documents, because they're full of lies, deceit, and embarrassment to the left."
I'm no genius, but I do find it very coincidental that the Dems are suddenly trying to divert attention to a broad suddenly deciding she was assaulted at some point in the Carter...or Reagan administrations...at an unknown place; just as the facts are scheduled to come out in what they've been talking about nonstop for 2 years.

Ironic thing about tonight, the Reds basically used the Brewers' strategy; Lorenzen got through 2 times through the order and then a bunch of relievers finished up. That's basically what the Rays and Crew have been doing all season, though TB has added a reliever "opening" for an inning or two.
You'd always prefer winning, of course, but losing Cain and Shaw is a bigger blow. They certainly have the depth...I assume Braun will probably take Cain's place with either Granderson or Yelich moving to CF; and Schoop/Arcia/Perez are plenty capable of taking Shaw's spot...but it's certainly a drop off of LH pop at 2B (though a small improvement in D) and defense in CF. Depth matters.

2018 Brewers record runs allowed/runs scored
3 or less--19-45
4 or more--67-21
4 or less--76-22
5 or more--10-44
Last updated with the games of TUE, 9/18
With luck, I will try to keep this updated daily.
Years ago, Pete Vuckovich was the Brewers' TV color guy, or one of 2-3 that season, I can't recall. For all of his drunken exploits and overall goofy stories involving him that are brought up; he was a pitching coach, pitching coordinator, scout, or assistant to the GM for a variety of MLB teams for the better part of the past 30 years, so he's not some dumb oaf. He was far from a brilliant analyst, as his knowledge was almost entirely talking pitching and pitch selection.
However, one night, almost in passing, the Brewers scored their 4th run of the game, and went up like 4-1 or 4-2. He called that "the run of victory," or something like that. He went onto say, for all but a team or two, the 4th run was key. In fact, he said, almost every club will have a losing record if they score 3, but a winning mark if they score 4. The play by play guy, who I think was Jim Patchke, all but ignored it.
Vuke, probably pushed on by the guys in the truck, as this was like Twain literature compared to his usual drivel, added the same was true for pitching, if you give up 4 or less, you'll probably win, and 5 or more, you'll probably lose. I have always remembered this and have always found it to be 100% accurate...but have never heard another baseball person say it, even 30 years later.
The other thing I'll add is note how much better of a manager Counsell is when his pitchers pitch nicely and/or his hitters score a bunch. It's not a complicated game.

Brewers sign a 2 year agreement with San Antonio to have their AAA team. SA is where the Colorado Springs team is moving, so they will have the same owners.
I think it's a new stadium, so we will not know park factors, but geographically, it will be far better than the expected Fresno partnership would have been. Also, San Antonio has a major airport, while Fresno would have had to drive first to San Francisco.
ADDED: Not a new stadium, but an older one that needs some updates. It was very much a pitcher's park when it had a AA team.

Glenn sums it up perfectly.
If this was a Hillary nominee, the old media would have dug up a dozen former boyfriends that would say, "She was too wild for me," and a dozen pastors and deacons to vouch for Kavanaugh's whereabouts every day of his teen years.
I've never been more confident I'm on the right side. It's pathetic and undeniably disturbing. This is the kind of thing we should never see, and we've now seen it twice...same bunch of jackals each time.
I hope to hell I'm not the only one that's ready to go to war. If they want to rumble, let's rumble.

Counsell choosing to forego getting little used relievers some work and will let Woodruff pitch the 9th.
Brandon has seemingly worked his way right into the mix, just below the top 6 (Jeffress, Hader, Knebel, Soria, Burnes, and Cedeno) or so. Guerra, Williams, Barnes, Lyles and Jennings would seemingly be in the next group; with the others (Peralta and Albers) just waiting for a 13-1 game or for a game that is meaningless in the standings.

This is something that should end your ability to serve in the Senate. Gross misconduct by Feinstein, and completely pathetic. She and this Ford woman is both nothing more than political hacks.
The amount of disgust I am seeing online today is off the charts, worse than the backlash that occurred when Obama ignorantly sent pallets of cash to Iran because he was such an ignorant fool on all things foreign policy.

Lots of Packers' fans unhappy today with the roughing the passer call.
I assume what was called was "driving the QB into the ground," which is very ticky tacky and referee specific to say the least. However, all the player has to do is to avoid the illusion or look of slamming the QB down. Landing on top of the QB is another red flag, as by definition, you can't drive a player if they land on top of you.
Avoiding penalties is an important aspect of football. Complain all you want, but changing your behavior is more important.

Mr. Kavanaugh, 35 years ago, this liberal woman whose parents lost their case your mother presided over in court, says you attempted to sexually assault her. She can't recall the year, or even the decade. She can't recall the house, or whose house it was, or how she got there. She says your friend witnessed the entire thing, but he denies it ever happened. We need you to prove this never happened.
You can read the whole thing here. And while you're at it, feel sorry for your country, and hate the smug, elite, pompous schmucks who do this.
This is no more than a 90 second Criminal Minds episode, which politically correct folks feel obligated to make into a 2 minute one. Absolutely disgusting.

I'm wondering if this Kavanaugh BS is just what the GOP needed to get their voters good and fired up enough to donate, volunteer, and do whatever they can to the polls, including show up themselves in good times...sometimes, when things are going good, people are "satisfied" and tend to not bother.

I'm seeing this as pathetic, but it looks as if a couple senators who could not have won their own party's primary because they're incredibly gutless are being...wait for it...incredibly gutless, in their ongoing attempt to be attention whores.
No one even pretends this a legitimate complaint. The thing I keep hearing is if he steps down, the president will go more conservative. Hell, I'd nominate Bob Bork just to mess with them.
Remember, this is the party that hailed Teddy Kennedy as a hero his entire life. Bill Clinton's victims were slut shamed and still are. Pretending this is anything but science fiction is preposterous...but, so is the Democrat party.

The sad thing is, many are missing the greatest boom of their lifetime. People will look back at this as the good old days for decades. Only those that are too stubborn to enjoy it aren't.
Negative, miserable people tend to do what they can to remain negative and miserable. It's kind of their shtick. That's why the same people are always the ones on social media insisting their life is hell.
It is, and they're the cause. The funny thing is, they despise positive people. Many spend their entire life insisting the wealthiest, most free nation to ever exist needs to change to make it...less wealthy and less free...because they know better.
Freedom of speech is bad, as it might hurt someone's feelings. Criticizing Obama was racist. Criticizing President Trump is brilliant, even though his results are immeasurably better...because shut up.
That darn bad luck.
Of course, their opinion changes like the breeze...because they don't really have any beliefs, they just complain a lot.
