I know people still want to talk about the end of the American Republic. You can still discuss it in the thread below, which is officially still Live.

But I also think some people might be about to blow a gasket and might need to decompress. Like me.

Falling domino artwork.

Jumping on other planets.

Careful toddlers navigating a dangerous world.

Little kid turns a bike fall into a Crowning Moment of Awesome.

Wait, if you're over there, who's holding my hand?!

Brave kids save a dog from the coils of a big constrictor.

Baby really enjoys his parents' singing.

Tesla battery changing station.


Don't Look Now.

San Francisco, 1906, four days before the earthquake. Color and sound added.

Idiot tourists trap an adult male orangutan on the path between them. Fortunately for them, the orangutan had more sense than they did and walked away.

Is this real? It looks real but it can't be.

59 Joe Kent has taken the lead in WA-03. There is little reason to believe that he will lose that lead without some blatant cheating to dump fake votes into the system, which will be hard at this point. He has been gaining ground on same day votes, which is where Kari Lake's victory also came from.

So looking like my predictions from a week ago Monday are looking solid now. Masters and Lake won in AZ, Dixon and Gibbs won in MI, Schmidt won in MO, and looking like Kent will get the second spot in WA-03 and Beutler will lose her seat. Only thing that I was wrong on was the KS abortion question.

99 So looking like my predictions from a week ago Monday are looking solid now. Masters and Lake won in AZ, Dixon and Gibbs won in MI, Schmidt won in MO, and looking like Kent will get the second spot in WA-03 and Beutler will lose her seat. Only thing that I was wrong on was the KS abortion question.
Posted by: Dave in Fla at August 08, 2022 08:56 PM (5p7BC)

I think the Kansas abortion issue might be explained by how clear the polling questions were vs. how confusing the actual ballot measure was. But excellent job, despite what it looked like on the actual election night!

Lot's of dirty tricks pulled in this election. I'm just a bit surprised they couldn't find 1000 votes of insurance somewhere. Seems odd to me that 10 days of counting ends up with the Trump candidate edging out the incumbent.

Unless the election officials think that Kent gives the Dem a chance to win, but that is unlikely in this district. The Dem's best shot was against Beutler, because a lot of Republicans were not going to vote for her period.

None - the judge had to be picked for their willingness to issue a warrant - someone who doesn't care anymore about their career or even their oath. This may or may not have been inappropriate judge shopping. But I guarantee that the judge and the court that issued this warrant - if nothing criminal comes of this - is done and damaged without redemption - impeachment or a written rebuke from a higher court is going to happen.

207 Not impossible, but not plausible, that the unprecedented act of a raid on living former president's residence was *not* approved all the way up the chain.

Recall the discussions surrounding the (outrageous, scandalous, transparently corrupt) non-investigation of Hillary's massive years-long Espionage Act crime wave on the 7th floor of State? DOJ and FBI have developed informal guidelines over the years to try and avoid acting when such action would have electoral consequences (things like announcing investigations close to elections, etc).

But the FBI physically raids a former president's residence without the FBI director, AG, and WH knowing and approving????

Of course, as always, my basic framework may be irrelevant, based as it is on how things generally were in the US most of my life. Clearly in so many many ways we are now literally in a different country and world.

238 What a crappy day. I went out to feed the horses more hay at noon and my 27 yr old board horse was colicking. He was rolling and up, walk 10 yards and down again so I got some Banimine in him and called the vet clinic and his owner. He scared me in April with similar behavior but was cured by a dose of Banimine, plus some extra drugs from the vet to be thorough and then a month of sand clear. But today he stopped showing really obvious pain but was visibly not right an hour after my dosing and the vet found his colon was displaced on a rectal. Vet went and ran some errands while owner came to say good by. He got to feeling good for a bit and was munching and soaking up attention but the pain was pushing through the drugs as the final good byes were said, which at least helped erase any doubts that helping him across the rainbow bridge was the correct choice. Still sucks.

But, of course, we all know that's not why the raid was permitted. Never-the-less, there is less and less evidence that the judge had any reason to order it in the first place.

272 Thanks Notsothoreau. Yes, having a colic that drugs relieved pain although they couldn't cure it, was a blessing so that goodbyes could be said. And its hard because the old boy had been doing great since the April episode, he had slicked out and the neighbor kids had been riding him some and giving him attention this summer. They were just over this morning.

It is hard because of the 'but he was doing so well' but also a comfort to know he was enjoying life the last several weeks instead of enduring it.

283 By the way - if a higher court finds that the warrant was issued under false or misleading premises - that there was never any reason for the court that issued it to believe the target was engaged in an ongoing criminal enterprise, or that the target was reasonably believed to flee with evidence, or that the target was going to destroy evidence relevant to a criminal investigation unless intervention happened - then evidence gathered on an unauthorized and illegally issued warrant is inadmissible.

This sounds like a little thing but it's pretty important.

The President of the United States is the one person who has right to declassify any document he or she wants. From Bigfeet to space aliens to corruption in the US government. By definition, anything he or she has in their possession that they have declassified is NOT classified information.

Some of us were waiting after Trump lost for the thousands of documents he said he declassified regarding Russia collusion to be released and they never were because the Deep State fought it.

How much you want to bet this was all about that?

I won't go on and on about it, but it's a fun little kid place. Over about 12 and it's probably less appealing (our daughter was bored but was a good sport since there were roller coasters and a water park).

The best part for them other than seeing all the pro builds was that every employee has a minifigure or three on their name tag, and the kids and ask to swap. They loved that. They probably traded 5 figures 50 times before the visit was over.

I'm a big King Arthur fan so I was on the lookout for Merlin. I never saw him even in a display, but I never really expected to. I got a hot dog guy, though, and that's pretty close.

That presupposes several judges being solid in their support of English and logic. You have presupposed too much.

The National Archives just coordinated an FBI raid on the POTUS private residence. Laws are certainly in effect for half the country.,

362 It's dumb to keep blaming DeSantis or Noem or any other Republican governor for not stopping this or not having a tough enough statement. We are in a war that has never happened before and the feds have done insanely crazy shit. This is unprecedented and expecting law abiding people to have proactively acted even more illegally is just dumb and unproductive.

Watch what they do know. That's what matters.

364 A moment of perspective. In the great battle between Nixon and Congress not once was the FBI called in to raid the President. Today, a dispute that should have been started with a request by the Archival agency to comply and then escalated to a lawsuit if not satisfied was immediately escalated to FBI jack boots kicking in the doors of President Trump's private residence. The only reason for this is to sow terrorism of the federal government in the general population. All is upside down. President Trump is not the threat; it is the current people in control of the Federal government of whom we should be terrified. The Federal government is at war with the population. God help us.

Believe it or not, it's a little bigger than that. It's WWIII. The opening shot was officially fired in late 2019 in the form of a bioterror attack on the world, and the subsequent Guiding Hand that has followed. It's the globalists vs everyone else...

Okay - civil society has broken down somewhat, I get it - but we're not at the point where we're killing neighbors in the streets in order to eat. Law enforcement is still happening...yeah, not like you and I would like or average citizens really need. But I haven't witnessed bludgeoning of dog walkers in front of my house or cops shooting grandma coming out of the Stop and Shop for fun and target practice...let's get a grip.

Am I alarmed by current trends? - you bet. But I see commenters suggesting Zombie apocalypse...you have do time. And things are happening on the local and state level that will help...a lot of MAGA folks are getting in where it counts...not everything is national politics.
