Gary Kasparov is considering coming out of retirement!

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/07/06/king-back-chess-legend-garry-kasparov-comes-retirement/

He is going to play in a fide rated tournament this year at the Saint Louis Rapid and Blitz tournament for the first time since 2005.

"Ready to see if I remember how to move the pieces! Will I be able to announce my re-retirement afterward if not?!", he tweeted.


How exciting (at least for the geeks amongst us who play chess) !

Nice summary of the healthcare votes

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/07/25/us/politics/senate-votes-repeal-obamacare.html

I think dean heller made a big mistake voting yes on the skinny bill after he was a no on the two previous votes. He is likely going to get kicked out of the senate in 2018.

spicer has more integrity than sessions. who would have guessed ?

I cant believe it. I thought Spicer had sold his soul to Trump and would grovel and take the abuse like Sessions did. He had enough integrity left to just resign instead of being humiliated by Trump.

when i learned about the 8th guy in don jr meeting

it dawned on me that the true purpose of that meeting was to setup a funding stream of laundered russian money. It all falls together. Remember, Kushner also met the alfa bank guy, there was this misterious trump tower computer transacting with alfa bank , etc..

The whole gop was on the take which explains their behavior..


Rachel is laying it out clearly.

i guess we could learn from bernie on messaging..

So, guess who is on all in with ari melber taking a victory lap about the health care bill demise, yeap Bernie. He is much better at hammering a message than our democratic leaders. As far as I could see, the gop efforts were largely twarthed by the grass root organizations who mobilized heavily. I did not see Bernie there at the forefront any more than schumer or others.

if senator mc cain retires do we have a competitive democratic candidate for the seat?

I am not wishing any ill health to Mc Cain, I hope he recovers. However, if he does decide to retire , do we have any hope of getting that seat in 2018 or whenever the arizona law says that the seat must be put up for elections ?

Pundits Need to stop asking this stupid question

I keep hearing them wondering why the Trump administration does not come clean and put all the info out to avoid the drip drip and put it behind them.

You would think the answer is obvious. They don't because the truth is worse than the drip drip. They are traitors fully embroiled with the Russians politically, financially, via compromat, etc..

Apparently these pundits think it's a typical D.C. Scandal you can treat using the usual PR methods.
