Al's Ramblings

The richest nation in the world...before a decade of socialism.

1/31/2019 07:00:00 PM

(1/31/2019 06:48:00 PM) - Al

Moustakas, Keuchel, and Gio Gonzalez continue to be mentioned as targets of the Crew.

Also a report that MIL still chatting with the Tribe (PC alert) about a swap of Kluber for Ray (and others, of course).

1/31/2019 06:48:00 PM

(1/31/2019 06:32:00 PM) - Al

Miley signs with HOU. 1y/$4.5M.

Time will tell if his success was luck and the Brewers' defense.

1/31/2019 06:32:00 PM

(1/31/2019 04:30:00 PM) - Al


Strongest gun control in the nation, you realize.

1/31/2019 04:30:00 PM

(1/31/2019 03:16:00 PM) - Al


How dare he?

Thank goodness they keep talking.

One of the funniest things to come out of this cold spell is the post office, which loses $35M a day, isn't even bothering to deliver the mail...and no one cares.

Meanwhile, UPS delivered our order yesterday, wait for it, just like every other day.

The difference? One is an efficient example of capitalism. And the other is the government struggling to compete with people that give a damn.

That, my friends, is why socialism always fails.

(1/30/2019 08:00:00 PM) - Al

I'm telling you, cold weather is just a thing of the past.

The only thing that will save us? Taking more money from the successful.

1/30/2019 08:00:00 PM

(1/30/2019 02:57:00 PM) - Al

The best part is, they just keep doing it to themselves.

And they never realize it until it's too late.

Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta put this toothpaste back in the tube because I'm an idiot.

1/30/2019 02:57:00 PM

(1/30/2019 02:06:00 PM) - Al

Just a's colder because it's hotter.

You stupid rubes.

1/30/2019 02:06:00 PM

(1/30/2019 08:00:00 AM) - Al

They thought fighting Kavanaugh was a brilliant idea too.

-28 tomorrow night, and then 35 Saturday.  63 degrees difference in about 60 hours. That is like going from 90 to 27. Freaky.

1/29/2019 08:12:00 AM

(1/29/2019 08:08:00 AM) - Al

Rambling wife reports her low tire pressure light came on this morning.  Wanna know what doesn't work in cold weather? Electronics that are not needed.

Red state patriotism.

Proud to be on their side.

1/28/2019 04:30:00 PM

(1/28/2019 11:00:00 AM) - Al

Our cul de sac just got plowed for the third time since the Rambling wife went to work at 6:30 this morning.

Needless to say, every truck and every driver must be out. We've had storms in which our street did not get plowed 3 times in total.

1/28/2019 11:00:00 AM

(1/28/2019 10:42:00 AM) - Al

How dare ye?

Heh. They're very offended when others do what they do.

1/28/2019 10:42:00 AM

(1/28/2019 08:30:00 AM) - Al

Honestly wondering which one I'd rather go out with*.

Leaning toward the one on the left.

*I know many of you are saying, "Al, it doesn't matter, you're married."

Actually, it doesn't matter because neither one would go out with me if I was younger, better looking, single and really, really rich.

I'm so old, I remember when it was racist to point out Obama knew nothing about economics. This is why they keep muttering "Russia." They realize the former administration was stifling growth for 8 years that is now booming just by allowing the simples to keep more of what they earn doing caveman like things, like growing food, building houses, and fixing furnaces and pipes.

You know...what the elites are "too good" to bother with.

1/27/2019 08:00:00 PM

(1/27/2019 06:00:00 PM) - Al

It's all fun and games until you get an earnings report.

Hard to believe these dinosaurs of journalism are struggling to make a go of it. I mean, look how diverse they are!

1/27/2019 06:00:00 PM

(1/27/2019 03:21:00 PM) - Al

It's funny because it's true.

The irony? Unpaid bloggers are several times better than these biased writers that get paid. If they were really good, they'd open their own site. They're not, so they don't.

1/27/2019 03:21:00 PM

(1/27/2019 12:55:00 PM) - Al

Schools are already being called off for tomorrow, several in the WI Rapids/Port Edwards area.

1/27/2019 12:55:00 PM

(1/27/2019 12:40:00 PM) - Al

This needs to be said.

It's just like when we had to tell the Rambling son if there was a fire, to try and get the Rambling dog out quickly with him, but the priority was to make sure he got out.

And don't you dare go back in after anything. That's why we have insurance.

Businesses in the area should give a paid half day or day. Every veteran is an American hero.

Should be people as far as the eye can see. As a person who wishes funerals would just go away, as they are ridiculous to me, this is one I would attend. 

1/26/2019 06:46:00 PM

(1/26/2019 05:30:00 PM) - Al

You realize, the dead costs far less than the living.

1/26/2019 05:30:00 PM

(1/26/2019 03:00:00 PM) - Al

The only way you make everyone equal is to make everyone a have not.

1/26/2019 03:00:00 PM

(1/26/2019 01:06:00 PM) - Al

The left has no idea this could possibly hurt them.

Thank goodness.

(1/26/2019 11:00:00 AM) - Al

Bob Uecker turns 85 today.

I still think renaming Miller Park Way after him makes a lot of sense...even more now that Miller Park will cease to exist name wise in a couple years.

This is one of those things that would gain a lot of traction if someone other than myself came up with it...

1/26/2019 11:00:00 AM

(1/26/2019 09:30:00 AM) - Al

That's because the old media is full of terrible people.

1/26/2019 09:30:00 AM

(1/26/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

Whenever I see something like this, I feel sorry for the person. Because they rearrange their life around a minor league hockey team. That's pathetic in a dozen ways.

1/26/2019 09:00:00 AM

(1/26/2019 06:00:00 AM) - Al

If only there was some sort of economic principle that could have predicted this development...

1/26/2019 06:00:00 AM

(1/26/2019 03:11:00 AM) - Al


Yes he does.

I know it's shocking, but when you marry your brother to avoid being deported, you're probably not all that concerned with being ethical.

I'm not saying they're horrible people. They don't need my help.

1/25/2019 08:00:00 PM

(1/25/2019 06:49:00 PM) - Al

Being a protected class is great until someone else joins you.

Then, it's hell.

Personally, I find fat Caucasian males from flyover country to be underrepresented almost everywhere...not that hiring more of them would benefit me. ;) 

1/25/2019 06:49:00 PM

(1/25/2019 08:00:00 AM) - Al

It's not about who is's about politics.

When everything is about politics, the truth tends to be lost in lies because of...politics.

I'm glad they're not on my side. They're awful.

1/25/2019 08:00:00 AM

Thursday, January 24, 2019

(1/24/2019 03:00:00 PM) - Al

Well, wait a minute, this isn't how this is supposed to work out, damn it.

1/24/2019 03:00:00 PM

(1/24/2019 02:00:00 PM) - Al

That's because for 49 years, people forgot to file. It has nothing to do with the president's economic policies, which do not work, because they are his.

Meanwhile, despite 8 years of proof, Obama's worked perfectly...they kept the peasants in their place and gave the government more power.

1/24/2019 02:00:00 PM

(1/24/2019 01:30:00 PM) - Al

Fact check: True.

1/24/2019 01:30:00 PM

(1/24/2019 01:00:00 PM) - Al

Vogt says he's feeling great, which is what you'd expect a guy looking for a job to say.

1/24/2019 01:00:00 PM

(1/24/2019 12:38:00 PM) - Al

This will hurt teams that have used roster flexibility as a weapon. I would say it tends to hurt small market teams more, because larger market clubs are more likely to have veteran bench players and relievers that cannot go down.

1/24/2019 12:38:00 PM

(1/24/2019 12:30:00 PM) - Al

The new Lindsey Graham, freed from the tsk tsk of McCain, continues to kick ass and embarrass the left.

1/24/2019 12:30:00 PM

(1/24/2019 12:10:00 PM) - Al


The accusations.

Those facts are pesky when they go against what you lied about.

1/24/2019 12:10:00 PM

(1/24/2019 11:50:00 AM) - Al

What happens when a girlie man eats all meat for a month?

Exactly what you think. He gets healthier, loses a few pounds, and tries his darndest to insist it didn't work.

1/24/2019 11:50:00 AM

(1/24/2019 10:00:00 AM) - Al

This is an example of the liberal utopia.

A plethora of have nots? No wealth?

What do you think government handouts and punishing success are supposed to accomplish.

1/24/2019 10:00:00 AM

(1/24/2019 08:00:00 AM) - Al

This is why we celebrate MLK Jr's life Savannah, you stupid liberal hack.

The hell with her.

1/24/2019 08:00:00 AM

(1/24/2019 05:30:00 AM) - Al

McArdle does a fine job, but she tries too hard. The lies and editing are all one needs.

They are fake news, as is any news organization that does not spend 90% of its day reporting on the nearly never previously seen success of the Trump administration.

1/24/2019 05:30:00 AM

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

(1/23/2019 09:44:00 PM) - Al

Covington isn't getting nearly the anger that Kavanaugh did, but the old media lying and selective editing actually make it far worse.

I have not heard conservatives so united since the last time we tried to destroy an innocent person's life

The hell with them, every last one. 

1/23/2019 09:44:00 PM

(1/23/2019 07:24:00 PM) - Al

Been out all day, Stearns given a fancy new title and extended.

We'll see, but usually this means the assistant GM gets the title of GM.

1/23/2019 07:24:00 PM

(1/23/2019 09:30:00 AM) - Al

Actually, it's because they're lying liars.

And very bad people.

1/23/2019 09:30:00 AM

(1/23/2019 06:00:00 AM) - Al

I'm glad they're not on my side.

1/23/2019 06:00:00 AM

(1/23/2019 05:30:00 AM) - Al


Ever notice the ones who attack the GOP are always complete losers?

1/23/2019 05:30:00 AM

(1/23/2019 01:59:00 AM) - Al

Fact check: True.

American Family Insurance buys naming rights to Miller Park.

That'll be hard to get used to. Miller Coors has to be unhappy. That's a painful blow, however superficial.

1/22/2019 10:30:00 PM

(1/22/2019 01:57:00 PM) - Al

Looking at this, it would seem likely the Crew simply had little interest in Cabrera, probably due to his defense.

1/22/2019 01:57:00 PM

(1/22/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

The old media is in such a hurry to put out fake news against the president, they fail to realize they are proving the president correct that they use fake news.

They just don't get it.

1/22/2019 09:00:00 AM

(1/22/2019 07:30:00 AM) - Al

The irony?

Biden apparently does not realize Obamacare is still the law of the land. Oof.

1/22/2019 07:30:00 AM

(1/22/2019 04:30:00 AM) - Al

That's because politicians want to get reelected.

1/22/2019 04:30:00 AM

(1/21/2019 11:00:00 AM) - Al


Nothing happened.

Grow the hell up, you self absorbed fool.

1/21/2019 11:00:00 AM

(1/21/2019 10:00:00 AM) - Al

A wise man has said they will not be happy until everyone is as miserable as they are.

Fake news? Check. Selectively edited video? Check. Everything the left insists they would never do...they did. Last week, they proudly reported a completely fabricated tale that was proven wrong with 5 minutes on Google.

They don't care at all about truth. Not in the least. They are horrible people who deserve to have their livelihood die a slow and painful death because of their bias and stupidity. Check.

(1/21/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

As a result, Kyle Rudolph will receive $25K to his charity of choice. 

$781 a team. This season, 1/32nd of NFL TV money is $156M.

Ironically, they don't have full time officials either. Too spendy. Way to dig deep.

(1/20/2019 07:30:00 PM) - Al

The Patriots have simply been better than everyone else.

The irony is, the Packers have too...but the same braintrust that decided they needed to trade and release starters (that's what we call failing to plan and planning to fail) decided they could do better by paying an aging QB a kijillion dollars a season and shrugging their shoulders with several other positions.

1/20/2019 07:30:00 PM

(1/20/2019 02:00:00 PM) - Al

The lies are much preferred to the truth.

Because the truth shows a 2 year run of success that makes the previous 8 look like...the failure it was.

1/20/2019 02:00:00 PM

(1/20/2019 01:20:00 PM) - Al

No mention of the Brewers on Harrison.

I think they are waiting on Moustakas to sign. I feel he is option 1 and 1A at the present.

I will say again that Dietrich is a nice match on paper too.

1/20/2019 01:20:00 PM

(1/20/2019 12:30:00 PM) - Al

No mimosas can be served at 10:30AM.

Because they know better.

A half decade ago, you could buy a health insurance policy with a $5k deductible for $150 a month. Now, one costs about 4 times that.

Because they knew better. And if you disagree, you're a racist.

1/20/2019 12:30:00 PM

(1/20/2019 11:00:00 AM) - Al

It's a mystery that may never be solved.

1/20/2019 11:00:00 AM

(1/20/2019 09:30:00 AM) - Al

The old media is puzzled by this.

Because they don't get it.Why would people who played by the rules not want others to break them?

Because common sense exists.

1/20/2019 09:30:00 AM

(1/20/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al


If I didn't know better, I'd think the success is why the fictional "problems" are discussed so often.

Can you imagine the outcry if the results were as Carter like as Obama's? Heh.

They'll never forgive him for proving all it takes to spark the economy is letting people keep more of the money they earn. And not hating capitalism. 

1/20/2019 09:00:00 AM

Saturday, January 19, 2019

(1/19/2019 02:48:00 PM) - Al

I pointed out the racist and anti Jewish sentiment 2 years ago.

Many liberal gals were willing to overlook that because they hated fiscal responsibility and the Constitution that much.

When you're willing to "look past" racism and bigotry, well, that's why I'm glad they aren't on my side.

1/19/2019 02:48:00 PM

(1/19/2019 02:00:00 PM) - Al

And, punish the successful for...being more successful.

1/19/2019 02:00:00 PM

Badgers with a stellar win versus 2nd ranked Michigan.

Happ is a man among boys even in the Big Ten.

(1/19/2019 12:56:00 PM) - Al

Yankees look to be getting a king's ransom for Gray, 2 top 10 prospects and a pick seems like a ton for one year of Sonny.

Brewers said to still be involved.

1/19/2019 12:56:00 PM

(1/19/2019 07:30:00 AM) - Al

They get caught every time.

Then they complain when we call them fake news.

The hacks continue to embarrass.

As Katie points out, they are a parody of themselves.

The irony

Friday, January 18, 2019

(1/18/2019 12:09:00 PM) - Al

You'd think they'd be better at this by now.

1/18/2019 12:09:00 PM

(1/18/2019 09:30:00 AM) - Al

This is possibly the most brilliant stunt of our lifetime.

1/18/2019 09:30:00 AM

(1/18/2019 05:00:00 AM) - Al

I seem to remember a wise man saying that no one hates illegals more than legal immigrants.

The old media and the left don't understand this.

Because they're too busy pushing the narrative to waste time with common sense.

1/18/2019 05:00:00 AM

(1/18/2019 02:00:00 AM) - Al

Imagine if Pence was a Muslim.

But, of course, no one cares about that.

1/18/2019 02:00:00 AM

Thursday, January 17, 2019

(1/17/2019 03:20:00 PM) - Al

Yankees close to trading Sonny Gray.

Oh c'mon.

Polite and civil.

I worked many Sundays over the years in retail.

I'll settle for $1M.

1/17/2019 11:30:00 AM

(1/17/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

A wise man once said the left was driving people away with ridiculous accusations from decades ago which were obviously politically motivated.

8% to 42% would seem to show this is true.

They fail to realize that when you cry wolf, eventually, no one cares. The worst thing about these lying hacks sexual assault claims is it keeps real victims from speaking up for fear of looking as bad as the lying hacks.

Their quest for power makes them oblivious to common sense.

1/17/2019 09:00:00 AM

(1/17/2019 05:30:00 AM) - Al

Well, to be fair, it was probably getting colder because it was getting hotter.

Note those huge fluctuations. Less than half a degree. I think in math circles, we call that random noise.

But, you see, no one gets grant money for random noise...

1/17/2019 05:30:00 AM

(1/17/2019 02:30:00 AM) - Al

I remember pointing out the blatant hatred in the women's march when it began.

Better late than never libs.

Why I'd never spend much money on a DH. Guys like Granderson, especially when adding in a platoon advantage, can almost always be had for a low amount.

1/16/2019 12:00:00 PM

We can always hope.

Just when you think maybe the self importance of millennials has been overstated you stumble upon this.

Nothing tells me more about life than some clod who had to meet a deadline with a fictional list.

1/16/2019 09:00:00 AM

(1/16/2019 07:30:00 AM) - Al

Think of this the next time some 20something tells you they're "gonna do a mudder this weekend."

Good for you. And shut up.

(1/16/2019 04:45:00 AM) - Al

Chatting online with my friend in GA. No matter how simple the time zone difference is, in the middle of the night, it's still easy to get confused.

The mind just ain't as sharp when it's sleepy.

1/16/2019 04:45:00 AM

(1/16/2019 03:30:00 AM) - Al

That's because the government does not have a plan to buy milk or gas.

Every day in the USA, 1 out of every 10 people eat a meal at McDonalds.

The left insists every one of them is stupid and conservative (hence, I repeat myself).

Thank goodness.

I tried to declare as well, but my stone tablet broke in transit.

1/14/2019 06:32:00 PM

(1/14/2019 11:30:00 AM) - Al

It's hotter because it's...erratic?

If I didn't know better, I'd say this might all be random fluctuation.

Of course, then there's no reason to punish the that's obviously not the case.

1/14/2019 11:30:00 AM

(1/14/2019 10:00:00 AM) - Al

Went to the doc Monday because of a sore throat that has lasted 2 weeks. Despite this, I tested negative for strep. Have never had strep in my life, despite enough ear and tonsil infections to kill a lesser man.

Tonight, I was talking to a friend of mine online. She was shocked by the above fact, and replied in this manner, which I found very funny.

Friend--You've never had strep? Ever? 


Friend--I get it if I pull up next to a car at a stoplight if someone has it. With the windows rolled up. 


The Rambling son used to get it every year as a toddler, sometimes twice. He used to get it without having a sore throat. He got it so often, they had the wife and I tested to see if we were "silent carriers." He also would get ear infections without any discomfort in his ears.

Morsi reports the Giants have insisted either Burnes, Woodruff, or Peralta be included in any Bumgarner trade.

The Crew obviously likes Bumgarner, but with only a year of team control remaining, I do not see top prospects being discussed.

EDIT: Reports say the Giants are eyeing Corey Ray as the main piece of a Bumgarner swap. Ray is a solid OF who can play all 3 spots and is a plus athlete. He's probably a top 100 prospect on many lists. I don't think it would take much more than Ray, unless another player is coming back from the Giants. Could 2B Joe Panik interest the Brewers? He has a 760 OPS versus RHP and a 756 OPS away from SF in his career. Stearns is said to prefer LH hitters due to so many pitchers being RH. Panik has 2 years of team control remaining.

Always find it funny how little casuals understand about roster construction.

--Fans puzzled over why Broxton was not kept.

--Fans puzzled over if Broxton was going to be traded, why Santana wasn't kept.

The active roster only holds 25 players. At least at times in 2019, it is very likely the Crew will need to use a 13 man pitching staff, leaving room for 12 position players.

Other than the 8 starters, that leaves 4 bench spots.

--backup C

At best, if Thames is not on the 25 man, carrying a pair of reserve OF's makes the bench mighty unbalanced. At worst, I don't really see a spot for a 2nd one.

Valerio is a Dominican youngster, just turned 18.

Wahl is listed on Roster Resource as having a pair of options. If so, trading the out of options Broxton for a hard throwing reliever with 2 screams of looking ahead.

Many have pointed this out, but the military and the Pentagon see war as job security.

War needs a start point and an end point. If they lack either, questions need to be asked.

The funny thing? No one bothers to do so except President Trump.

McCain's legacy continues to suffer, after his funeralathon and now lying about his role in releasing the dossier.

You see, the more control the peasants allow the government to take from them, the easier it will be to take the rest.

Nothing is more damaging to Romney's reputation than Romney. He's like a dude trying to appeal to his wife and his girlfriend.

Louis CK is so bothersome for the left, they have rewritten history to make him a conservative.

George Wallace is smiling.

Tulowitzki agrees to a deal with the Yankees.

Considering his injury prone recent history, I'm sure he just wants to "be a guy" and not "the guy."

Yes, private citizens having political opinions is hellishly controversial.

This is why the left's "problems" are ignored.

No diet here either. I've lost 50 pounds since NOV1. I'm wasting away I tell ya.

Other resolutions you can choose instead.

My friend in GA has dealt with this problem on several occasions, mostly on apps.

She handles it with her typical aplomb, she curses and texts me that certain companies suck.

Meanwhile, I paid for my 29 cent copy at Office Max this morning with plastic. Hey, it's like I carry cash like that around with me...

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.

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)
