The thing about being retired is that Friday has no real significance and we’re generally happy on Monday. We have the freedom to do whatever we want without asking permission. Miss Olivia pitched her first game last night and RJ has his first Pony League Tournament game tonight. I just wish the rain hadn’t swollen the river over flood stage so we can’t get the boat in yet. Problems, problems.
OK, ENOUGH ABOUT BRAGGING ON MY GRANDKIDS. DOWN TO THE DEPRESSING STUFF.

Police Funeral: “Where are the demonstrations for this single mom?”
NYPD Commissioner’s powerful message on the death of Officer Miosotis Familia.
IT IS A TRAVESTY THAT THIS CITY IS RUN BY A LOWLIFE WHO ENJOYS POPULARITY AMONG THE REPTILES WHO CRAWL AROUND THE STREETS.
The commissioner asked why people in such a politically active city like New York aren’t protesting in the streets against this senseless killing.
“So, where are the demonstrations for this single mom, who cared for her elderly mother and her own three children? There is anger and sorrow, but why is there no outrage? Because Miosotis was wearing a uniform? Because it was her job?” he asked. “I simply DO NOT accept that.”
I REMEMBER IN 1864 ABRAHAM LINCOLN WAS ASKED WHY HE DID NOT DISMISS U.S. GRANT FOR DRUNKENESS.
HIS ANSWER WAS: ‘I CANNOT SPARE THIS MAN…HE FIGHTS.’
(That’s not from the article…I just knew it.)
We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.
This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.
Dan Rather Resurrects Disgraced Career As Trump Critic
In August 2016, roughly four months before the election, Rather went on what USA Today described as an “epic Facebook rant” after Trump said the “Second Amendment people” would keep Hillary Clinton from abolishing the Second Amendment. Many in the media portrayed that comment as a threat. Rather’s Facebook post — in which he urged journalists to abandon objectivity in covering Trump — received approving coverage in the media.

Fashion Notes: Melania Trump Wears Custom Red-White-and-Blue Frock For Dinner in Paris
Melania, always one for custom-made high fashion frocks, wore a bespoke Hervé Pierre red, white and navy blue cocktail dress for the formal dinner, paired with black stilettos and perfectly tousled hair.
The dress takes inspiration from the Americana and French flags, but also is unusual in its bodice origami-like detailing, which resembles a basket of wheat.
Trump Teases Macron: “You Better Do A Good Job” Against Terrorism
BTW, here’s Trump dissing the American media by calling on a Chinese journalist instead. He asked a question not about the Russia investigation but about . . . China.
Jesse Jackson: Hillary Clinton Really ‘Won The Election’ Against Trump — But ‘It Was Stolen’
“To have a head of our party who is sensitive to the plight of working people is the order of this day,” Jackson said. “Don’t forget — when you lose, you tend to amplify ‘woulda, coulda, shoulda.’ When you win, you cover up your sins. Don’t let anybody fool you, we worked last year, we won the election. It was stolen.”
