Nixon was paranoid. No question. But this guy?

Donnie Two-Scoops?
Is there a term for 'beyond paranoid'?

EVERY institution or individual that doesn't completely suck up to him he thinks is trying to do him in.

They speak the truth about him and he sees only specious lies.

The man is seriously ill.
But I guess we all knew that by now.
Well, at least those of us who aren't congressional Republicans.
Hell, they know it too.
And we know they know it.

I despair.

Fire Stick

A bit off subject, but is anyone using Fire Stick?
How do you like it?
I have 10MBPS download speed max.

Why is this scene in so many movies?


"Bad Guy": I know. I'll throw this empty pistol at him. That will surely stop him. He'll NEVER be able to dodge my deadly and unerring aim."

The BG never thinks that, if he keeps the gun, he just might find some more bullets on a dead guy or wherever.

Chickpea pasta? A review.

Basta chickpea pasta.
Inexpensive and comes in a variety of shapes.
About the same calories as regular pasta, but more protein, more fiber, and less carbs.
25g protein vs 13 for wheat pasta
13 g fiber vs 3.
43 net carbs vs 71.

If you're looking for a substitute for wheat pasta it's better than spaghetti squash or zucchini "noodles" (shredded zucchini).

A bit chalky(?) but not all all bad.
Not as good as real pasta though.
Google Basta pasta and you'll find it.
Buy directly.

Alabama pastor asks church to pray for Trump, against witchcraft attacking him

Daphne is about 30 minutes from me.
This is WAY off the rails, even for Baldwin County Alabama.

"An Alabama pastor asked his congregation on Sunday to pray against the witchcraft that he said is attacking President Donald Trump, and the sermon is getting a lot of attention on social media.

"It's time to pray for the president," said Pastor John A. Kilpatrick, who founded the Church of His Presence in Daphne in 2006.

Kilpatrick quoted 2 Kings 9:22, which attributes witchcraft to Jezebel. "When Elijah faced Jezebel, he was facing witchcraft," Kilpatrick said.

"What's happening right now in America, is witchcraft's trying to take this country over," he said. "It's witchcraft that's trying to take America back over."

A video of the sermon that highlights the mention of witchcraft against Trump has more than 100,000 views on social media. The entire sermon can be viewed on the church's web site."

Fun with eggs

I love eggs.
Hard or soft boiled, poached, fried or scrambled.

Recently bought a couple of silicone egg rings.
Just liked the look of perfectly round fried eggs.

I separate the yolk from the white.
Mix whatever strikes your fancy with the white.
I've used chili (no beans), sriracha, chopped caramelized onions, fried rice, herbs de Provence, etc.
Pour it in the ring and then top it with the yolk.

I do them sunny-side up, putting a glass pot lid over the egg until the whites are done and the yolk is still runny.

Channel surfing. Watched Lou Dobbs for a minute.

Holy Shit!
He's worse than Trump.
A broadcaster on national TV egging on the fake news crowd.
Said Acosta was 'too sensitive'. or some such.
What a total asshole.

I'm uneasy about judge T.S. Ellis

I'm not an attorney, but it sounds to me like he's asking questions and prodding where he really shouldn't.
Asking the prosecutors if they will call Gates as a witness.
Why would they telegraph that to the defense?

Shutting an opening statement off with "Living a profligate lifestyle isn't a crime."
No, it's not. But it does tell you a lot about the character of the defendant.
I just don't like the way the guy is handling this case.

I'd welcome comments by attorneys who know a lot more about this than I do.

Here's what he ruled in the Khalid El-Masri case:

"On Thursday, May 18, 2006, Ellis dismissed a lawsuit filed by Khalid El-Masri, a German citizen, against the Central Intelligence Agency and three private companies allegedly involved with his kidnapping, transport, and torture in Kabul. Ellis explained his belief that a public trial would "present a grave risk of injury to national security",[9] though acknowledging that:

If El-Masri's allegations are true or essentially true, then all fair-minded people, including those who believe that state secrets must be protected, that this lawsuit cannot proceed, and that renditions are a necessary step to take in this war, must also agree that El-Masri has suffered injuries as a result of our country's mistake and deserves a remedy.[10]

Like "Tough shit, Khalid."
