Weekend Open Thread

  • by: Colorado Pols

“When you’re just open but not honest, then you start free-associating garbage.”

–John Mayer

  1. Good morning. First day of Autumn. My favorite time of year. So I'm glad it wasn't delayed, like Christine Ford's appearance in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She's been given five extensions now to agree to testify, but still refuses to commit to appear. How many times do the goal posts get moved?

    Also there’s word that she wants to drive from California to DC. They actually have these machines called  airplanes which can fly people anywhere in the US in a matter of hours. I know they exist because I've been on one myself.


    1. Good morning allyncooper. First day of autumn, my least favorite time of year. It's pumpkin season from now 'til Christmas, and I loathe the things. Actually, I'm allergic to it and it'll be pushed at me in every possible way for the next two months. Regarding Ms. Ford. There are these phenomena called phobias. Hers seems to be flying, so it's quite reasonable for her to drive to D.C. So sad that the boys on the Judiciary Committee are inconvenienced by this, but she's been through quite enough at the hands of overbearing men.

      1. always jumping the gun with no facts


        September Equinox in Denver, Colorado, USA is on
        Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 7:54 pm MDT



        football causes brain damage.

        its still baseball season.

    2. John Madden: America’s biggest commuter

      Madden, 67, works, sleeps and eats as he covers 80,000 miles annually — almost all of it between September and January — across America’s interstate highways.

      It was back in 1979 that the poster child for the claustrophobic, fear-of-flying set had what he described as “a full-blown panic attack” when about to fly out of Tampa.

      “It wasn’t about flying, bad turbulence or anything. The flight attendant closed the door and before we’d even moved I knew I had to get off the plane, but I gutted it out. You think you’re going to die. I was sweating, shaking, the whole thing.

      “It was about being encased and not being able to get out.”

      Madden landed, turned in his frequent flier card, and grounded himself forever.

    3. You would like the season when everything shrivels up and dies.

      Maybe the thought of being sealed in a canister in the air for 4 hours with potentially sexually predatory men makes her uncomfortable.


  2. Donnie's song


    Trump fills up our senses

    Like a night in a cess pool.

    He numbs our whole body

    Like a rattlesnake's kiss.

    Like a foul dysentery

    Chronic diarrhea

    Ohh, let us flee upwind

    Trump’s stinking again.

    1. Now you're getting clever with it, V. Much better.

      Just one problem. I’ve had that blasted song (the original) stuck in my head all day and It’s your fault!

      1. I know the problem, Cookie.   Annie's song is very hard to displace.

        I almost went with “Who thinks Trump stinks” to tune of Who wears short shorts” but you are probably too young to know that song.

        1. No, I'm not. It was by The Royal Teens. I grew up on the old stuff from the 50's, 60s. My brothers are all half a generation older than I, so I got a good musical education. Someday you'll have to visit and see our music collection. We have a cabinet that looks like a card catalog, absolutely packed with everything from acoustic to zydeco, ABBA to Warren Zevon. but 'R' is for reggae, not rap.

  3. summer ends tonight

    the rockies season, the SCOTUS 'hearings', this election season, end a few days from now

    Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE, Social Security, the American middle class, later this year or next.


    welcome to Autumn, Charlie Brown. Don't kick that ball.


  4. From the "Good help is hard to find", or maybe "Welcome, you'll fit in just fine here" department:

    Grassley aide resigns; harassment alleged

    NBC News reported Saturday morning that it had been investigating Ventry’s past employment history, including his tenure in the office of North Carolina House Majority Leader John Bell in 2017. According to the network, Ventry was let go from the office after a female GOP staffer in the North Carolina General Assembly accused him of sexual harassment. He had also been accused of embellishing his résumé.

    1. The world moves fast, at least allegedly.  Details included in the 2nd tweet pic may be triggering for victims, so be warned.

      I represent a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge. We will be demanding the opportunity to present testimony to the committee and will likewise be demanding that Judge and others be subpoenaed to testify. The nomination must be withdrawn.

      — Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) September 23, 2018

      My e-mail of moments ago with Mike Davis, Chief Counsel for Nominations for U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary. We demand that this process be thorough, open and fair, which is what the American public deserves. It must not be rushed and evidence/witnesses must not be hidden.

      — Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) September 24, 2018

      1. Kavanaugh is toast (as far as being on SCOTUS, anyway). He just doesn't know that yet, and neither does Mitch McConnell.

        How long will it take Cory Gardner to walk back his support? What's the over and under on that one, Polsters?

        Women all over the country will be visiting Senate offices on Thursday Sept 27 at noon,  and in DC on Monday, in a national day of solidarity to ask their Senators to #cancelkavanaugh. #believechristine . #hearourvoice.

        This is being organized by the same grassroots, spontaneous coalition that brought you the Women's March.

        It's going to snowball. And even more women, and more evidence of Kavanaugh being a sexist jerk, will continue to surface.



  5. I received my blue book on the upcoming election.  I value many of your opinions with the exception of the right wingers. I wanted to ask your opinions on amendments Y and X.  Y is the Congressional Redistricting and Z is the Legislative Redistricting.  Your thoughts would be appreciated.
