Plea Deals

I've been waiting for some good news on the Mueller investigation front, and it sounds like I'm getting some. Paul Manafort apparently agreed to a plea bargain that requires his cooperation with the investigation. In today's world, anything that's good news for me is probably bad news for Donnie Stinkfinger. Here's the write-up by Marcy Wheeler at Empty Wheel.

Something I think is funny

There aren't many things that make me laugh today, but here's something that does:

Rafael Cruz calls himself Ted because he thinks it helps him pass for a white guy. He's making fun of his opponent for using the nickname Beto (given to him as a pre-schooler) because he thinks O'Rourke wants to pass for a Mexican.

Why is this manure mound a U.S. Senator?

Concept of hypocrisy beyond his ability to comprehend

If it's not illegal, it should be.

We can add Fat Freeloading Motherfucker to the guidebook of ugly ways to describe Donnie Squalid. The brain-dead goobers in his audience should be forced to foot the bill for this shit through mandatory campaign donations equaling 75 percent of their annual income.

Putin > Manafort > Pence

Manafort worked for Putin before he worked for Donnie Dickwad, and Putin probably made sure that Manafort had a significant role in Donnie's 2016 campaign. Then Manafort chooses Pence to fill the VP slot. As far as I'm concerned, there's credible linkage from Putin to Manfort to Pence, and it needs to be thoroughly examined under a microscope, preferably one in Mueller's lab.

Privatization

My opinion, based on personal observation and experience, is this: It's almost always a big mistake to transfer government services and functions to businesses that have a primary goal of maximizing profits. Private sector firms seeking easy money always guarantee that the service can be provided, or the function can be performed, much more effectively at a substantially reduced cost to the government. And Republicans always fall for it.

We've already seen the Halliburton money pit in operation in Iraq.

Summer walks in Texas

Judging by the amount of water on driveways and sidewalks and in the street, some Texans seem to think you can grow concrete and asphalt using lawn sprinklers.
