      Wait, so he’s choosing to rap Black attendees in deference to Sanders? What a joke.

      Heckle away, in my opinion. Plus, nobody puts out pity tweets when President Obama gets heckled. We send out tweets about those incidents congratulating PBO because HE CAN HANDLE HECKLERS.

      Kids banned from “riding in the front” in my world.

      • July 18, 2015 at 10:03 pm

        I haven’t gotten to the kids stage yet, but I don’t know what is proper and what is not…I believe some U.S. states ban car seats in the front b/c of airbags 😕

          One of the reasons here – but also the unsafest seat in a car. Kids sit in back. Quite handy to stop family arguments between the little ‘uns as well 🙂 They all used to want to sit in front!

    ‘OVER THE PAST 100 years, many things about the automobile have advanced. Safety, fuel efficiency, and price—they’ve all improved dramatically. But one thing that hasn’t been revolutionized is the tire. Sure, we have advanced compounds to optimize fuel economy and traction in the snow, but at their core they’re just piles of air, surrounded by a rubber donut. Hankook Tire thinks we can do better. The South Korean manufacturer has been developing a non-pneumatic tire for a while. We first saw the concept in 2013, when it was one integrated unit, combining tire and rim in one. Now, Hankook has completed initial testing on its fifth-generation airless tire, dubbed the iFlex.

    The tires do not require any air pressure, instead relying on a new type of eco-friendly material (the company demurs when asked for details). Geometric shapes built into the material provide the bounce and springiness normally provided by air pressure. But, unlike the previous iFlex, this version’s designed to mount onto a traditional rim, making it compatible with current vehicles. Hankook ran the iFlex through a battery of tests to compare it to more conventional rubber, measuring durability, hardness, stability, slalom and speed, at up to 80 mph. The company says the tires matched conventional tires in terms of performance…continued’

      Yes, sir. And all McAngry can do is sputter. One rich guy goes after another rich guy, and both of them are buffoons, which is an understatement. I would say “May the better man win,” but neither is a better man.

      I don’t like any GOP behavior, mostly, but I’m sitting back and enjoying watching this.

          Went very well – and thanks for asking! He seems to be doing much better, still getting used to not being able to do as much as he’d like, but in very good spirits. And the good spirits are half the game, as we know!

            And do make sure he stays not doing “as much as he likes” for a week or two. My biggest gripe with surgeons, they often suggest you start bouncing around on day 3 – when it usually takes until about day 15 🙂

            So very pleased to hear all is going well.

    An English professor wrote the words “woman without her man is a savage” and directed his students to punctuate it correctly.

    The men wrote: “Woman, without her man, is a savage.”

    The women wrote: “Woman: Without her, man is a savage.”

    I would love a President Biden. What do the wonderful folks at TOD think his chances are of winning it. I keep thinking of all those remarks making fun of him. Actual way back in 2008 VP Biden was one of my favorites, until I researched and listen to President Obama more and more.

    Just doing my part to ensure that all of you #FeelTheBURNbernie ….

    “In March, Mark Stern at Slate bared Sanders’ record on guns that Wayne LaPierre could be proud of. The Great White Hope of True Progressives (TM) voted against the Brady bill, took the Republican line on gun violence victims after Sandy Hook (saying gun control wouldn’t do anything to reduce tragedies), and in 2005, he voted for the law that is now keeping victims of gun violence, including the families of children who are gunned down by criminals, from suing gun makers, even if they are negligent and sell guns to criminals without background checks.

    Recently, he went on the Plane Still Missing Network… err, I mean CNN, to proclaim the goodness of 99.9% of gun owners in America. One might be compelled to ask the question as to how Sen. Sanders arrived at this statistic, given that over 60% of sellers on the Internet and gun shows have indicated their willingness to sell guns to someone who cannot pass a background check.

    Given all of this, why the populations affected most adversely by gun violence have a pause on the Senator who is so callously pro-gun is indeed puzzling…

    Turns out, though, that it gets worse. Bernie Sanders isn’t content to pull out pro-gun statistics from the hat, he is on the record supporting the vigilante and racist border militia group ‘The Minuteman Project’.”

      His excuse for a lot of this is, “Well, in Vermont……”

      First of all, he’s running for President of the entire United States, not just his tiny state. And common sense gun reform will protect everyone.

      Interesting, if even a rumor of some progressive transgression was circulated about PBO, the emoprogs called him every name in the book. But Bernie gets a pass on gun control? The hypocrisy burns………

    So some people criticizing POTUS because he was with his daughters in New York, instead of in Chattanooga. Being President someone will always fine something to criticize you about.

      Strange to me that after nearly 7 years people can’t see that this man can walk and chew gum better than anyone I have ever seen in public office. He spends his day moving from one scenario to another and at each he appears to give 100%. It is a masterful quality.

      Another quirky thing not in a cartoon, because I have no talent. I hang with three generations of “my kids,” on occasion. My son’s generation typically never leaves the house only once. They all seem to return within minutes because they’ve forgotten something. His children seem to return twice. The little ones haven’t reached that stage yet, but they will. Ha.

    Not sure if this was posted yet, but it’s hysterical (from actor in Broadway play the Obama family saw):

  33. July 19, 2015 at 1:47 am

    “‘Hamilton’’ arrives on Broadway this month, riding a wave of adulation not seen in American theater in decades. It is a rare thing: not just a theatrical landmark, but a show that jolts our thinking about popular culture and casts new light on some of the most storied events in American history. It is an odd creation: a rigorously factual period drama about the political intrigues of the early Republic, starring a cast of mostly black and Latino actors, with a score steeped in hip-hop. It is also a coronation, confirming the 35-year-old Miranda, the acclaimed composer and star of the Tony- and Grammy-winning 2008 show ‘‘In the Heights,’’ as his generation’s preeminent musical theater auteur. ‘‘Hamilton’’ is the product of an unlikely meeting of two minds, across a gulf of centuries. ‘‘When I encountered Alexander Hamilton I was immediately captivated,’’ Miranda says. ‘‘He’s an inspirational figure to me. And an aspirational one.’’

    The genesis of ‘‘Hamilton’’ has already entered theatrical lore. While on vacation in Mexico in 2008, Miranda cracked Ron Chernow’s doorstop biography, ‘‘Alexander Hamilton,’’ which was nominated in 2004 for the National Book Critics Circle award and won the George Washington Book Prize. A few dozen pages in, Miranda’s new project began leaping to life. In Hamilton, he saw a figure he recognized: a word-drunk firebrand with untrammeled ambition, raw talent, an outsize ego and a lust for combat, verbal and otherwise. Miranda saw a rapper.

    It is the genius of ‘‘Hamilton’’ to make the link between hip-hop and the world of 18th-century politics seem like the most obvious thing in the world — not a conceit imposed upon the history but the excavation of some essence lurking within it. ‘‘The idea of hip-hop being the music of the Revolution appealed to me immensely,’’ Miranda says. ‘‘It felt right.’’

    Miranda’s Hamilton is a ‘‘young, scrappy and hungry’’ upstart, whose bootstrapping rise from the streets of New York resonates with the Horatio Alger trajectories of rappers like Jay Z. Hamilton has a fatalistic streak in the manner of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. (It is not a long leap from Biggie’s ‘‘I’m ready to die!’’ to the words that Miranda puts in Hamilton’s mouth: ‘‘I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory.’’) Most of all, Hamilton is a wit, a motormouth, a graphomaniac — a man who staked his fate on his way with words. ‘‘Hamilton produced over 27 volumes of written work,’’ Miranda says. ‘‘I think it’s appropriate that we would need a musical style that transmits more words per minute than any other genre.’’”

    good night TOD
