Just try to get on a plane with a name misspelled on the boarding pass...... just for kicks, you might try it. Won't get you anywhere. That is why those two words were capitalized.

Well, that was just an example of the fact that it's all outdated. The building has outlived it's lifespan, was really the point I was making. Any "improvements" are just stuck on with duct tape and staple guns (or so it seems).

It's going to be interesting when the pot "cultivation centers" get up and running. We'll be arresting people for doing something themselves that when licensed by the state is legal. Kinda like arresting bars for little back-room poker tournaments while state-sanctioned casinos rake in millions. I can't distill my own vodka for my own use in Illinois without paying the state an $1800…

Strawman: Trey Gowdy Rocks!

1 month ago by Strawman

 

I have the same feeling I had Sunday afternoon.  USA is leading Portugal 2-1 in the World Cup---there are seconds remaining in the game. But, because it’s soccer, no one really knows how much time is left, but what the heck. The good guys are winning and it looks like they’ve made the final 16.  And then disaster.  Portugal ties the game on a perfect goal and………..it’s reality all over again.

The same thing would happen 24 hours later.

Monday night (that’s right Earl, prime time, must see TV)  South Carolina’s Trey Gowdy slapped the taste out of the mouth of IRS Commissioner and snark-master John Koskinen.  It was a thing of beauty.

The IRS, who up to those few moments Monday night, pretty much had been telling those participating at the Congressional hearings to suck on it, were dealt a set-back.  All be it, not a big one, but an in your face Mr. IRS, you’re not as smart as you think you are set-back.  And it was all done by the book and in the most professional manner possible given the circumstances.

The trouble the right will have with Gowdy handing Koskinen his ass, is that, save for a few us who enjoy a good beat down now and again, it will soon be forgotten.  Or Daryl Issa or John Boehner will sell us out behind closed doors.  Come to think of it, that’s probably happening right now.

But for the moment, Gowdy is my guy.  For a brief moment, the USA was leading the country of IRS-Obama 2-1.  So I guess I’ll have to live in the moment.

The good news here; Trey Gowdy is the point man on the upcoming Benghazi Special Committee.  The bad news; there’s only one of him.

And don’t bring Paul Ryan’s name up.  Ain’t even close……
