Don’t Blame Hurricanes Irma and Harvey on Climate Change
An opinion piece which first ran on the CATO Institute web site, written by an economist

Both were published late this week.

Kamala Harris is asking us to spread the word about Dreamer paperwork deadline in Oct.

Her Tweet:

Are you a Dreamer whose renewal is set to expire before 3/5/18? You MUST renew before October 5.
Spread the word.

and she gives link to Gov. page:

Pls. share for morning folks ehre.

Her Tweet:

Irma shifted again...now we will be in the cone in ala.

Hopefully the inland journey will wring a lot of rain out of it, and it will be a low wind tropical storm, and that cone will narrow.

Wife of Trump Organization Ethics Lawyer Arrested After Alleged Tryst With Inmate

The wife of a lawyer tasked with monitoring ethics in President Donald Trump’s business trust was arrested Tuesday afternoon after “suspicious” activity with a Virginia inmate in the backseat of a car outside a jail.

Teresa Jo Burchfield, 53, was outside Virginia’s Fauquier County Adult Detention Center when deputies charged her with a crime of her own. Burchfield and an unnamed 23-year-old inmate were spotted in the backseat of a car, along with a bag of pills and other contraband items that Burchfield had allegedly given the inmate. Burchfield’s husband, Bobby Burchfield, is an ethics advisor to the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust, an entity intended to keep Trump’s business and political ties separate.

“The defendant was caught in the backseat of her vehicle with an inmate," according to a criminal complaint obtained by the Fauquier Times. "When the inmate exited the vehicle, he handed me a bag of brown pills (capsules), that he claims to be workout pills."

The inmate, who told police he and Burchfield had been having sex, also had other contraband items on his person, including cigarettes and vitamin supplements, according to the complaint. The inmate told investigators that he and Burchfield had been meeting for a month.

Burchfield’s husband is a member of the Republican National Lawyers Association.

Did you hear Don Jr. complaining about all the hard work on the campaign?

"it was an exhausting, all-encompassing, life-changing experience,” he said.
“Every single day I fielded dozens, if not hundreds, of emails and phone calls.”

Jesus christ on a pogo stick......poor poor baby.
wonder how much he paid himself.

And what the hell he was doing in his supposed job as Trump Organization biz person, if not fielding emails and phone calls daily???

I would normally list all the things REAL workers do every day, esp. the poor guys who have to work 2-3 jobs to feed their family.
Or point out how glad any number of now unemployed people who would love to have the chance to answer phones and emails all day.

but I won't.

Instead, I will just hope that, like turkeys, he will keep his nose in the air during a heavy rain, with similar results.

Three Equifax Managers Sold Stock Before Cyber Hack Was Revealed

hree Equifax Inc. senior executives sold shares worth almost $1.8 million in the days after the company discovered a security breach that may have compromised information on about 143 million U.S. consumers.

The credit-reporting service said late Thursday in a statement that it discovered the intrusion on July 29. Regulatory filings show that three days later, Chief Financial Officer John Gamble sold shares worth $946,374 and Joseph Loughran, president of U.S. information solutions, exercised options to dispose of stock worth $584,099. Rodolfo Ploder, president of workforce solutions, sold $250,458 of stock on Aug. 2. None of the filings lists the transactions as being part of 10b5-1 pre-scheduled trading plans.

Equifax said in the statement that intruders accessed names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and driver’s-license numbers, as well as credit-card numbers for about 209,000 consumers. The incident ranks among the largest cybersecurity breaches in history.
essentially of the story is in the excerpt.

the level of acceptable graft and thieving in biz today is incredible.

Yup....gas prices suddenly went way up.

Mr. dixie reports today almost 30 cents higher

I have a question about DACA......

I just read this:
Mr. Trump has called on Congress to pass legislation before then that would keep the program alive.https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/07/us/politics/trump-pelosi-daca.html?smid=tw-share

President Obama signed DACA law.
Did it have an expiration date?

If not, what happened seems to be Trump decided to end it, effective 6 months from now, then gave the grenade to a Republican Congress to defuse.

anyone know what is behind this game?

Texas churches suing FEMA, they want that taxpayer provided money.

From jaunitajean.com

Apparently, they didn’t have insurance and by golly, God did not favor them. They got damaged just like the heathens next door.
The only difference is that the heathen next door pays taxes.

The churches claim they are being denied their first amendment rights because FEMA is discriminating against them.
The Texas churches that sued are the Rockport First Assembly of God in Rockport, which lost its roof and steeple and suffered other structural damage, and the Harvest Family Church in Cypress and Hi-Way Tabernacle in Cleveland, which were flooded.

I suggest they do what thousands of other folks pestered by Harvey do – put on some boots and a face mask, grab a shovel, starting digging crap Harvey left behind, and pay your damn taxes you welfare queens.


Someone asked downthread if churches were even eligible. They are not:

From: Public Assistance Program and Policy Guide
FP 104-009-2 / April 2017

p12. Facilities established or primarily used for political, athletic, religious, recreational, vocational, or academic training, conferences, or similar activities are not eligible (see Table 3).


Hell on earth...pic

I am sorry I cannot give credit to the DU member who first posted this photo a few days ago.
It is one of 2 that will stay in my memory of 2017.
of all the incredible fires in the Pac. NW, this pic pretty much describes the worst of it.
