Tyler probably trying to rush back to make $50K or so on the major league roster.

When you think, well, that's not a big deal...lots of families make less than $50K a year and don't even consider themselves poor.

(9/14/2019 05:00:00 PM) - Al

I know for a fact I have been told that the old media does not root for a side.


9/14/2019 05:00:00 PM



(9/14/2019 03:30:00 PM) - Al

At the very least, we need to ensure they wear suits of armor when doing such dangerous crap.


9/14/2019 03:30:00 PM



(9/14/2019 02:00:00 PM) - Al

Yang and Gabbard are the ones to worry about. They look smart and normal compared to the elderly goofy frontrunners.


9/14/2019 02:00:00 PM



(9/14/2019 01:22:00 PM) - Al

Saladino would be a nice add if he is close to 100%.

(9/14/2019 12:47:00 PM) - Al

Only worked a half day today. Turned on Dave Chappelle's Netflix special. I'm about 10 minutes in and have laughed heartily several times.

You joyless cretins best not watch though. You might be offended. Because you always are.

ADDED: Has some dead spots, but overall, very, very funny. The best part? The left will be wholly offended about 100 times.


9/14/2019 12:47:00 PM



(9/14/2019 12:30:00 PM) - Al

The problem is, this appeals to no one. Making up fictional reasons to prosecute law abiding citizens is absurd and the definition of unhinged.

Gulagesque statements like this and Bobbybeto's gun grab are just unedited GOP ads. I hope the nutty left never stops talking.


9/14/2019 12:30:00 PM



(9/14/2019 11:30:00 AM) - Al

The end of the world as we know it is always just a few years away.

But, I feel fine.


9/14/2019 11:30:00 AM



(9/14/2019 10:01:00 AM) - Al

The irony is, everyone except the far left has known this for 20+ years.

By the way, it's a shame airplanes caused 9/11...


9/14/2019 10:01:00 AM



(9/14/2019 06:30:00 AM) - Al

Reminds me of Politifact's "reversal" on Obama's "you can keep your doctor and insurance" statements. They are hacks and prove it every day.

Heh.

She couldn't be any more of a fraud if she tried.


9/13/2019 08:38:00 PM



(9/13/2019 07:42:00 PM) - Al

Silly to talk about, but Yelich is projected to be out 6 weeks. The World Series starts 10/22...more than 6 weeks away.


9/13/2019 07:42:00 PM



(9/13/2019 07:31:00 PM) - Al

They hate it when someone tells the truth.

How dare ye!


9/13/2019 07:31:00 PM



(9/13/2019 03:00:00 PM) - Al

It says the left are negative and miserable.

When you root for hurricanes and a recession, you root against your country. And they're proud of it.


9/13/2019 03:00:00 PM



(9/13/2019 01:39:00 PM) - Al

It's easy to change your mind when you don't really believe in anything.

Bobby will review his position a dozen more times before he fades away. That's how cowards operate.


9/13/2019 01:39:00 PM



(9/13/2019 10:30:00 AM) - Al

I hope they never stop talking. The best GOP ad is the Dem presidential candidates speaking.


9/13/2019 10:30:00 AM



(9/13/2019 09:30:00 AM) - Al

No one eats there...it's too crowded.

I'm not saying they choose stupid fights. They don't need my help.


9/13/2019 09:30:00 AM



(9/13/2019 06:34:00 AM) - Al

Adam of MLB.com playfully saying yesterday he doesn't know what the big deal is, people have been telling him for weeks this season is over. Heh.

The casual are suggesting trades in the comments. Goodness. Many had a fit yesterday when Peralta was brought in I guess. Hater should pitch 2-3 innings every day, you stupid rube.

My favorite was someone wondering why they brought up this Austin fellow from the minors, apparently not knowing he hit a HR a few days prior. They thought his first name was Austin too.

They get upset when you call them casual though. 😂😂



9/13/2019 06:34:00 AM



(9/13/2019 06:30:00 AM) - Al

Of course he is.


9/13/2019 06:30:00 AM



(9/13/2019 01:00:00 AM) - Al

I can't wait for President Trump to blast whoever the nominee is. Those that are afraid to do so are also afraid of winning.


9/13/2019 01:00:00 AM



(9/13/2019 12:00:00 AM) - Al

Best news I've heard in years.

She is underwater in her own district, with a favorable rating about half of the president's. But many on the left brag her up. They simply have no understanding of how anyone not on the coasts think.

Buggy whip factory managers and those who used to own general stores also upset with progress.

I always love when those that are decades behind insist it's someone else's fault they are decades behind.


9/12/2019 08:58:00 PM



(9/12/2019 08:00:00 PM) - Al

South Park and Chappelle are "grandfathered" in.

Heh. No they're not. Note him giving an out to critics who were afraid to admit Chappelle's special was hilarious because they are gutless cowards. I plan to watch it this weekend and because I'm, you know, not a wimp, will review it here.

Snowflakes beware, I loved the clips I saw on You Tube.


9/12/2019 08:00:00 PM



(9/12/2019 05:48:00 PM) - Al

Loves.

The irony...most are proud of it.


9/12/2019 05:48:00 PM



(9/12/2019 05:39:00 PM) - Al

The kicker? He would know her better than anyone.

I'm all but positive she will recant at some point...most likely something like "it was a memory "suggested" by my therapist" and therefore, I should be blameless.

Because, personal responsibility is for the rubes in flyover country.


9/12/2019 05:39:00 PM



(9/12/2019 02:30:00 PM) - Al

She fights just like the president. She's a veteran. And she's really attractive. She would worry me.


9/12/2019 02:30:00 PM



(9/12/2019 01:15:00 PM) - Al

DVRing the gane today as I am working. Worst part? I can't look at many sites online either.

I hate to say it, but I really do not have an opinion on the vaping thing. My buddy Trista switched for a while this past year, but the vaping thing (I don't know the terms) broke and she didn't have the money for another one , so she went back to cigarettes, which are "only" about $5.50 a pack in GA.

For the most part, I'm a libertarian. The nanny state is stupid and wrong. Passing laws because you find something distasteful or because of inherent risk...while ignoring big tobacco and vehicles traveling over 45 mph that kill far, far more people than flavor of the month concerns like opioids and multiple times what guns kill.

I despise seat belt laws and helmet laws. I despise prostitution prohibition and limiting victimless crimes, as well as "blue laws" limiting liquor store hours, when restaurants can sell alcohol (you can't get a drink with brunch on Sunday at noon, but can order as many as you want at 12:01, good God), and imagine the societal mayhem that would occur if we allowed auto dealers to open on the 7th day. I'm all but positive the world would tilt off its axis and children would die early deaths resulting in truckloads of infants being dumped in the landfills...which, never mind the dead kids, might be some sort of environmental crisis!

{Said tongue firmly in cheek. Remember, Chappelle's special allows us to tell un PC jokes, which I am gonna do anyway because it irritates the goody goody lefties.}

The truth is, I don't know. I have heard rumors that all the vaping deaths are related to people putting their own crap in the devices...possibly street drugs or cheap crap like cold tablets mixed with the "juice" sold in stores. Can't say I care a whole lot either way.


9/12/2019 01:00:00 PM



(9/12/2019 12:02:00 PM) - Al

Several stabbed in Florida yesterday.

I blame the NRA, the GOP, and the Constitution.

Oops. I thought it said "shot."

Never mind. Back to rooting for an economic downturn and trying to punish the successful.

And you think I'm kidding.



9/12/2019 12:02:00 PM



(9/12/2019 11:57:00 AM) - Al

Woodruff expected back within a week, per MLBTR.

I assume he will be used like Suter, perhaps even less, as Suter had several minor league outings.



9/12/2019 11:57:00 AM



(9/12/2019 11:30:00 AM) - Al

Back when the Onion was funny. Hijackers shocked with placement in hell.


9/12/2019 11:30:00 AM



(9/12/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

I seem to recall a wise man saying he hopes they keep talking. Unfavorable you say?

The best way to destroy them is to let them keep talking. They always say the exact opposite of what they should.


9/12/2019 09:00:00 AM



(9/12/2019 08:00:00 AM) - Al

Drill baby drill.


9/12/2019 08:00:00 AM



(9/12/2019 04:00:00 AM) - Al

Heh.

You mean "we're gonna take all your icky guns you stupid hicks," is not the way to sway public opinion? Puzzler.


9/12/2019 04:00:00 AM



(9/12/2019 12:30:00 AM) - Al

He's very unpopular and no one likes him.

Well, other than the voters.

Astounding Hader has 30 saves, considering several are an inning plus, meaning he has to work harder for them...and needs more rest after getting them.

Notice how Suter and Moustakas look like they are rested and healthy...because they are. I have pointed out often over the years how bad Cal Ripken Jr. was in SEP in his career. This is not a coincidence. I have said for the past few years that, as an amateur futurist, I think in the next 20 years we will see players take series and road trips off to let their bodies heal and take mental breaks. I think it will be common for SP's to skip a start (until the inevitable happens and teams stop having starters go 5-7 innings regularly, that may be less than a half decade away).


9/11/2019 10:52:00 PM



(9/11/2019 05:16:00 PM) - Al

We'll never recover from the last election.

Heh. You would think they would get tired of being wrong. But they never stop lying and they never stop being angry at the success of the greatest country in the history of the planet.


9/11/2019 05:16:00 PM



(9/11/2019 11:00:00 AM) - Al

The New York Times blames airplanes for 9/11. History is a bitch to rewrite because there's so darn much of it.

They also blame guns for shootings. Really out of touch and ignorant, but consistent.


9/11/2019 11:00:00 AM



(9/11/2019 10:00:00 AM) - Al

Extraordinary fan experience.

(9/11/2019 09:59:00 AM) - Al

It's the end of the world as we know it (just like it was 22 years ago).

But I feel fine.

Reminder...Al Gore's Academy Award winning movie? All lies. Pure fiction, just like Twister. Not a single thing he predicted has happened.

But this time, they're 100% accurate. If you disagree, you're a stupid science denier. Rube.

One thing they let leak out during Dorian was interesting. They measure hurricanes not in wind strength or rain totals...but in monetary damage to property. Hence, the strongest hurricane ever may have not got a bit of publicity...because it happened over and in the Atlantic Ocean where little land exists.


9/11/2019 09:59:00 AM



(9/11/2019 09:49:00 AM) - Al

The Rambling son gets something from these freedom haters every day in the mail.

I knew it didn't happen before the truth leaked out months later. How? Because they said it did.


9/11/2019 09:49:00 AM



(9/11/2019 09:35:00 AM) - Al

Heh. They never pick a side you know.

As someone said last night, this election would have been a bellweather had the left won those seats. Instead, those districts are now outliers, somehow detached from the rest of the nation.

It's easy to change your mind when you don't really believe in anything.


9/11/2019 09:35:00 AM



(9/11/2019 03:00:00 AM) - Al

I walked past a display of Smartwater yesterday in the store. It's $1.99 a bottle.

If you're buying it, it ain't working.


9/11/2019 03:00:00 AM


These are the good old days. Some folks are just too busy wishing the streets were paved with gold to enjoy the good times.

Whatever strikes me as interesting, and serious Milwaukee Brewers thoughts. If you are a believer in respecting OBP, throwing strikes, and keeping the ball in the park, you may have found the place you've been searching for. I believe in low taxes, small government, and am not afraid to be labeled patriotic. If you are interested in sausage race results, walk up music, or professional wrestling, you may wish to click elsewhere.

The Ramblings' manifesto can be found here.

I'm happy to pay taxes to help the helpless. I don't like paying taxes to help the clueless. Look at the Occupy movement...I'm forced to pay taxes to help those whose plight I delight in.--Dennis Miller

If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, and your life will be brief.--President Trump

Never have lives less lived been more chronicled.--Dennis Miller

I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.--Mad Dog Mattis

I have never understood why it is "greed" to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else's money.--Thomas Sowell

Ramblings makes me want to poke my eyes out with a sharp stick.--Marxist sympathizer (one of Ramblings' proudest moments)
