All the others have changed their names.  Marketing loves to change the name.  They think they are smart enough think up magic names that increase sales.  Right.
So here we are,

This ain't Chicken Feed

Alexander Soros, son of George Soros, donated $650 million to the Democrats.  Wow! That is a lot of money.  According to the Free Beacon.

Congress critters blow it again

70% or more of the country wants to do something good for the DACA people.  Our Congress critters, Senate breed, were unable to pass anything today.  The Republicans lacked the votes to pass their bill, the democrats lacked the votes to pass theirs.  Neither side had the brains or the guts to find a compromise that both sides could vote for.  And so, the DACA people may all get deported beginning next month. 
Way to go Congress critters. 

Pentagon estimates $10-30 million parade cost

Chicken feed.  Wall St Journal carried this.  A single new jet fighter costs $80-100 million.  $10-30 million is nothing.  Remember Everett Dirksen's comment,  "A billion here and a billion there and pretty soon you are talking real money."

Anyone got examples of Russian meddling in the 2016 election?

I read a lotta talk about Russian meddling vie social media.  But I haven't seen any examples.  How about a website or two? or some posts on Facebook etc.  If it happened, let's see some of it. 

It's Horrible

And my deepest sympathies for the victims of the Florida school shooting yesterday.  And that's all I am going to say, the TV news has been saying everything under the sun since it happened yesterday. So I don't need to add my two cents worth. 

Imran Amed, WSJ fashion plate

"Some ideas for fixing the fashion industry" is the headline of a piece in the Journal's Life and Arts section.  It's an interview with Imran Amed, rated "No 1 in GQ India's list of Best Dressed Global Indians.  Big color pictures of Imran to go with the article.  If he is well dressed, I'd hate to see a real slob.  Hair is uncombed.  Unshaven. Wearing a low speed dark suit made from some strange fabric, not the proper woven wool of a real suit.  No necktie.  A salmon pink sweater under the suit jacket, with white T-shirt showing at the neckline.  No shirt. And he is wearing boondocker combat boots instead of low quarter shoes.  Not my idea of well dressed. 
   His comments on the fashion industry are super bland.  He likes Gucci because they are selling well.  He likes Attico because they have 124,000 Instgram followers and they are selling well.   Insightful that is.
