Heard Nunes and Gowdy both call in to a radio show this morning about 7:am. There will be more memos. Odd, they never called that station before. Guess they are being proactive. Good interviews, straight answers. What caught my attention is that there is a memo in the works that will focus on the State Department. Hmmm. Follow the trail. FBI, Justice, and soon State. Getting closer.

And, even more to the point, can the FBI or Department of Justice management — “swamp central” — be trusted to investigate themselves?

Barack Obama must have known about the FISA warrant application process and the police state tactics detailed in the Nunes memo. He must have known because several senior members of his administration knew. Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Susan Page all knew about the FISA application. Would they have kept it secret from the president of the United States? Obama is the one the Democrats and the media are protecting the most and yet he’s never asked about it. Also, on the one hand the Democrats say this memo will reveal sources, techniques and national security Information. None of that was true and on the other hand they say it is a dud. This is a damning memo.

Now what do you think would happen under ‘single payer’?


I'm guessing that we can achieve a significant increase in lethality offset by paying three times more for the privilege.

There should, in my opinion, be no marijuana dispensaries. We have well-defined and effective practices in place for sanely-controlled substances such as alcohol and tobacco and there is every reason to believe that those practices would be similarly effective with marijuana. Of course, the states are kidding themselves while the Federal prohibition continues.

Don Bessee

Why do team lefty rush into the arms of any rancid Russian dressing peddler? Must be that basic socialist attitude going back to mama kinda thing.

Why not let the market place determine the number of pot shops George? I thought conservatives supported free enterprise.

Re 6Feb18 update Medical care:
Dr. Martin Makary (Johns Hopkins Med School) published his paper "Medical error—the third leading cause of death in the US" in The BMJ (formerly British Medical Journal) on 03May2016. See "http://www.bmj.com/content/353/bmj.i2139". He calculated the 250,000 deaths in that paper.

I could not get past the paywall for The Economist to see their article however, so they may have new numbers. But at least it sounds like The Economist may finally be catching up to the data after 2 years, as scary as it is.

PaulE 413pm - Excellent idea Paul. Can we list all the other several hundred (thousand?) items for which Nevada City will not let the market place be the final arbiter? Why limit it just to pot? Wonder why I don't see any of the town's overflowing progressives militate for that?

George Rebane

One thing we know about Euro-style 'single payer' is that when someone gets the wrong leg sawn off, they then get the correct leg sawn off as well and then they get a modest pension. No lawyers, no lawsuit, no condo in Hawaii on the beach. Just a pat on the head and a 'sorry about that old chap' and a free wheel chair for life. Americans are largely ignorant of what free health care means in Europe. Forget a private or double room. You get put in a ward. You might get decent care if you're lucky. Because what are you going to do if you don't like the care? Complain? Take your business elsewhere? Feel free to read the British newspapers online about the NHS. Constant problems and getting worse as the population ages.

Paul Emery

George, does Nevada city pass laws restricting the number of shoe stores or auto parts stores for example? You're missing the point of my 4:13 with your clumsy and silly response

Don Bessee

Says the po' ol' fakenewsman without a period @ 733. ;-)

George Rebane

PaulE 733pm - Yes, I believe they do by having to approve exactly what goes where with what building modifications and other required permits, etc. Nevada City has never been a friendly place to do business like you want to - I am told be some long time business owners that it's their way or the highway. Discretionary enforcement of building and operating codes is the constructive way that they do restrict the number of shoe stores and auto part stores in town. Why do you think so few people want to start businesses there; why is the big building across from the National standing empty for years? Let's hear your "clumsy and silly response".

Russ

Yes, as I watched the Falcon 9 Heavy launch tears were running down my face. And it was an OMG moment when the two boosters landed in sync on adjoining pads. The humor of a Tesla Roadster with a manikin in space suit behind the wheel on the nose of the spacecraft, with a camera over its shoulder, is a pure marketing genius. The excitement of the men and women in the control center will be contagious, others will want to join the Mars adventure. My old body and brain wanted to join the launch team, and so will thousand more come forward to be part of Musk's Mars venture. This is the beginning of something majestic.

Todd Juvinall

Didn't the cities ban Real Estate offices from the downtown core? I think they did. And GV said no more drive0throughs. So they can and do determine things like that. I am saddened that punchy, resident newsman, did not remember that.

Paul. "free enterprise" is a thing of the past.
Somehow you think pot shops are supposed to have free run. "it's legal".

Monopolies in Nev. City in Nevada City is nothing new. Ask the carriage operators of days past.

George Rebane

Walt 841am - Mr Branson, as hard as I try, I have NEVER found a progressive to understand either capitalism or the practical aspects of free markets. As clinically confirmed (and reported here), they use different parts of the brain to than do we to think logically and reason. Combine that with their totally different social utilities (that include definitions 'good' and 'better'), and communication beyond passing household messages is pretty much hopeless.

Don Bessee

So much for 0's promise to have no political interference in the rancid Russian dressing game-

George Rebane

DonB 1128am - Good catch. It is interesting to see who all is picking up what the latest texts reveal about that lying SOS. We expect crickets from our progressives on this substantial lying compared to bringing up Trump's braggadocios. Where this evidence now leads is anyone's guess, but Mueller definitely should have a little sworn chat with Barack about some real obstruction of justice if he did more than act as a passive listener when he got his Clinton investigation reports from the FBI/DoJ.

Walt

Sign up Nevada City!

DAMN... The main body of Falcon9 missed it's landing. But 2 out of three still ain't bad.

Don Bessee

Ran out of fuel too soon @ 242. ;-)

Walt

Hate it when that happens Don. I didn't hear the reason, so thanks.
Just wait till they slap 4 boosters on it. You could put a Union Pacific Big Boy into orbit. (OK math crunchers,, have at it. 567,000 kg ) Maybe?

Suddenly Elon Musk is a right wing hero?? Didn't Trump call him a "loser and a quitter"? Why yes, I believe he did. Hasn't Musk spent the past three years in the Repub cross hairs for "milking the system" and "being the world's expert is getting subsidies"? (note that no government money was spent on the F-9). Reminds me of how Colin Powell and Norman Schwarzkopf went from National heroes of the 1st order to "under-the-bus a-holes" when they didn't march lockstep with their right wing political bosses. So easy to lead with a wet finger in the air. . .

Don Bessee

You should flush the 'jon' its overflowing with excrement. ;-)

jon smith

Give us another stock market tip Big Boy Bessee. How is your war on marijuana going? Bitcoin a buy? Oh that's right, you only open your mouth when the wind is blowing your way. Another wet finger guy, you are.

Russ

jon@06:07 PM. Musk did not create the subsidies, he just learned how to use it more effectively than others.

Don Bessee

History shows how little you know the 'jon'. Why do you have the same avatar as other people so often? ;-)

LOL "jon",, the stock market fun and games was a computer glitch.
So go bitch to your stock broker.

Bessee 7:14 - Go back 24 months and I have the same avatar as today. It appears you are the one who is stealing the logo. What a moron you continue to be. Full disclosure - I have no idea how avatars are assigned and claim no affiliation to any one or the other.

Walt 7:34 - Perfect reply. You beat mad cow Bessee to the punch!! Every time the market goes up, it is because of a Trumpism. If it goes down it is because of Obama, Clinton, Carter, or a "computer glitch." Not my fault should be the GOP motto.

Don Bessee

The 'jon' continues to channel the usual suspects and has no perspective or a strategic view when it comes to money. Talking points for socialists don't ya know. Grow more plants is the mantra. At least the 'jon' flushed. Perhaps the 'jon' should stop feeling the need to pretend. Metadata is what it is. ;-)

One would think that an intelligent person could separate questionable "green" energy subsidies (especially given the Solyndra nonsense that occurred during President Chair Warmers tenure) from the technical expertise demonstrated by SpaceX the other day.

And imagine that this clown has an academic scholarship program for the local kiddos! Who would let their kiddos near a fellow with that kind of intellectual “reasoning”? It’s also hard to imagine UCLA accepted him based on this kind of intellectual “reasoning.” You can’t make this stuff up! Meanwhile, I’ll pass on Rebene’s words of wisdom to “progressives” such as Robert Reich, Paul Samuelson, and Warren Buffett. I’m sure he can teach them a “thing or two.” lol.

“[I]t is deeply irresponsible for a president of the United States to even flirt with this sort of conspiracy talk,” the overwrought Cillizza wrote, adding, “[T]he idea that the Russians, the Democrats and the FBI co-funded a dossier designed to discredit Trump’s 2016 campaign is totally bonkers.”

Southbound it is. Another one of Walt's "computer glitch" on Wall Street. You think that Trump would have them fix that thing. I'll come out and suggest that deficit financed tax cuts are another term for insane, but I know that won't fly on this board. How about we toss in another 300 billion to "fix" the budget and make America great?

Nobody as sanguine about the financial shenanigans of the Obama administration as you have been should have any complaints about this latest poor financial decision on the part of the federal government.

Don Bessee

As much as it sucks there can be no budget without team lefty. With the state of the world a price had to paid to buy the spare parts 0 cut off for the military's equipment. Too many young warriors have been dying because of 0's sequester, loses that were preventable with properly funded maint and training.

Echo chamber here??
Obama. . . everything bad in the economy today is his fault, yet Bessee crows (crowed) on a daily basis how the economy was so bitchin due to Trump. Stocks drop - stage left back to Obama. Can you even look at your reflection in a mud puddle and realize how frigging asinine you look to anyone outside your own fossorium?

Todd Juvinall

Obama was a economic obamination and Trump has turned that around in a year. All the indicators show it. You can be a dem denier all you want but the truth is the truth. America is way better off under a grownup that an amateur.

Don Bessee

OH the 'jon' overflows again. Unemployment, productivity and all underlying indicators are great. You sound like Bored Georgman who sold off on Nov. 9th 2016. People who actually have to manage investments have like all long term investors done quite well. Did you sell it all in a panic again? As if.

So I'm responsible for critiquing Bessees cheerleading the market? I had practically nothing to say about it because its all built on sand.
