Ryan last night

I had paid zero attention to him before, but he seemed to be the only one who actually had any answer about fossil fuel that sounded positive. He had me at electric cars. Then he talked about regenerative agriculture! How refreshing! Ahead of the curve!

I'm not saying he should be president, btw. Just enjoyed that part and not seeing anyone on Twitter with anything nice to say about it so here I am.

Worth watching--Interior/Climate Change

Maria Caffrey and other Interior whistleblowers. Hold your nose during Rob Bishop's statements.

ICE in Kansas City break car window to arrest man without a warrant

and with a child in the car.

And the KCMO police, who have plenty of other things to do, helped them.

Shopping for our first EV--updated


2015 Leafy is in the garage, all charged up and ready to go about 80 miles. I think we got a good deal. Now if I can only figure out how to work the XM radio. We must be at the end of the previous owner's subscription. Lots of learning with this car already; probably good exercise for the brain.


Anyone out there already worked through all this, eager to share your own insights?


Where we are after three days:
Tesla: No, thanks. Personal bias against Elon Musk.
Chevy: Need to go try the Bolt, but would prefer a higher seat.
Leaf: Heavy duty lease talk from new car dealer depicted them as becoming obsolete after three years, so he'd be "eating the depreciation for us." Handed us the keys to keep the car for a couple of days and fall in love with it. Yes, I have fallen in love with it, but he totally manipulated us and also insulted our intelligence btw. I think the smartest thing to do would be to buy a 2015-16, including some that just came off a lease. They are available for around $10-12k. Yes, we'd lose all the credits for new cars, but it still comes out to be much less and we don't need a bigger range. (9-year old Prius going strong for longer trips.) My understanding is that batteries were sketchy prior to 2014.
Kia Soul EV: I like the look of the Soul but can't find any near me to check out.
VW e-Golf: Can't find any nearby to check out.

What I have heard from friend with Leaf is that Carvana, CarFax, and CarMax are the ways to go for EVs.

Once again, Bob saw it coming

Boundary Waters

Trump has opened the door for mining.
This is the organization I've been following. It seems to have the best coverage and capacity.

KS-03 Again--HRC

I was reminded today that HRC won this district by a point in 2016. That was major.
We can do it!

KS-03

We have several good Democrats running this year. Instead of highlighting all the good things about their chosen person, I am seeing negative blather about the other ones on various social media sites (haven't noticed on DU yet). Really, I think they're all decent.
The focus needs to go to November--who can win in an area that has voted repeatedly for Kevin Yoder? He can be unseated, but some of the candidates will not be able to do it. Really hoping that someone who can win in November wins next week.

Sometimes it seems like we're just not thinking it through.

Butina!

I just read through the affidavit: https://www.justice.gov/opa/press-release/file/1080766/download

Great summary thread on Twitter by @SethAbramson. I would recommend reading it before reading the document, if you are a Twitter person.

NRA + Putin at prayer breakfast! + Flynn? + Jared/Don Jr/? + she's in jail and says she will cooperate = Hallelujah. I think it's all starting to come together by falling apart.

And she was arrested last week--the same week that Strzok was being grilled and then the 12 indictments arrived just as DT was headed for Helsinki.

This is beyond popcorn. This is chocolate covered almonds at the movies kind of fun.
