The bids/proposals are due March 29th. Nine days to bid on what would be one of the biggest construction projects ever (Panama canal has it beat, but what else? The Chunnel perhaps, Hoover dam, Three Gorges dam).

Nine.
Days.

Hahaahahhahahahahah.

Don't forget sanitary facilities, housing, food, laundry, etc. Some areas are too far for the workers to be commuting.
That part can be contracted out to Sheriff Joe Arpaio — I'd imagine he'd be willing to supply tents, rotten bologna sandwiches and pink underwear at only a slight markup.

Just for yuks, I tuned in to watch Trump give a rally speech in Louisville (I got tired of waiting for him to do one in Nuremberg). Here is a highlights clip. WARNING: This is a link to the most truthful news organization web site in the world.

What struck me afterwards was how gullible the audience was. After doing some digging I can now understand one of the reasons as to why Trump went to Kentucky for his rally.

"Forty percent of Kentucky’s working age population ages 16 to 64 functions at the two lowest levels of literacy—not being able to read at all or having very limited to moderate reading ability. Statewide averages mask the reality that large numbers of Kentucky counties have levels of literacy comparable only to those of developing nations—not other states."

cite. See page 4 and 5 or knock yourself and read the whole depressing thing.

Right wingnut Tomi Lahren was on The View Friday, and she actually said something NotCrazy; “I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies.”

Now Daily Caller is saying she's being leaving Glenn Beck's "news" site because her fellow right wingers are pissed at her.

That explains something that I found very odd back in the mid-80s. I spent a summer driving throughout the USA, mostly on back roads. On a dirt road in Kentucky I spent a few hours helping a fellow with his gas station's paperwork, getting him set up to accept credit cards (I had tried to pay for my gas with a credit card only to be told that he had the papers). I was wondering how a person with a gas station could get by without accepting credit cards, but it did not occur to me that he could barely read until we started going through the paperwork. That in turn got me wondering how a person could run a gas station while barely knowing how to read.

The report to which you linked has answered my long unanswered query. How very sad.

We drove highway 627 from Winchester to Paris, and in the first twelve or fifteen miles, both sides of the road were endlessly lined with horse fences. The pall of wealth seemed almost overwhelming. Kentucky has the full range of toothless hillbillies to julep-sipping colonels, but it looks to be exactly the highly stratified type of society that Republiopathic policies are aimed toward, so the Devosiate ethos of education starvation is precisely suited to the goal of national kentuckification.

Also, the smallest three-house town has a church (where I am from, by contrast, the smallest three-house town has a tavern).

Sad but true. Half of the country now gets it's news from the equivalent of the crazy guy on the corner who shouts about contrails controlling his brain, while pissing himself.
This is who they listen to now. Anything else is "fake news".

They just listen to whichever crazy corner screamer shouts the loudest.

GOP Rep. Scott Perry Says Chesapeake Bay Pollution Is God’s Fault

Quote:
A Republican congressman from Pennsylvania claims that God is a polluter.


Rep. Scott Perry was asked at a town hall in Red Lion on Saturday if he supported President Donald Trump’s proposed cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency in light of Pennsylvania’s “history of environmental problems.”


“Don’t we need a stronger EPA to protect the environment?” the questioner asked.


Perry, who has worked to restrict and limit the EPA’s abilities, didn’t directly answer the question.


Instead, he spoke of the Chesapeake Bay strategy, which he said was “forced on” the state and “left some violators out.”


Then he added:




“And by the way, some violators ― if you believe in, if you’re spiritual and you believe in God ― one of the violators was God, because the forests were providing a certain amount of nitrates and phosphates to the Chesapeake Bay.”


The crowd can be heard shouting in disbelief as Perry spoke.


“Oh, c’mon,” one person cried out.


At least one local religious leader took issue.


Rev. Mitch Hescox, head of the Evangelical Environmental Network, told PennLive that while some pollutants are naturally occurring, most are from fertilizers and chemicals.

Republicans have been accusing trees of causing pollution for decades, probably out of jealousy of the trees' superior intellect.

This is like a bad dream. Trump can pick up the phone and have any of a number of intelligence agencies tell him exactly what is happening, but instead he relies on rumors from people that even Fox News can't abide.

How long before he wants to drop a nuke on Kansas because he read a National Enquirer story about aliens landing in a cornfield? What would you do if you were a military officer responsible for executing that order?

That's easy, you pay the National Enquirer to run a story saying Kansas was nuked. Trump reads it and is happy, and it's got to be cheaper than actually bombing Kansas. Win-win.

We stayed in Leenaun once, in a B&B, on a biking tour. There were about six houses, and two pubs. We asked the boniface which one he drinked in, and he said "Well, we go to the one....then we go to t'other."

Last year, Obama could not get a hearing for his Supreme Court nominee because apparently a president nominating a justice during his last year in office was too controversial.

This year, we are proceeding full steam ahead with a Supreme Court nominee hearing, because there are no such concerns about a president who is under investigation for collaborating with Russia.

According to The New York Times' Margot Sanger-Katz, using CBO figures, if you were to simply repeal Obamacare outright, there would be one million more people covered than would be by the proposed Traumpcare replacement:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/21/u...peal.html?_r=0

Quote:
The Republican bill would actually result in more people being uninsured than if Obamacare were simply repealed. Getting rid of the major coverage provisions and regulations of Obamacare would cost 23 million Americans their health insurance, according to another recent C.B.O. report. In other words, one million more Americans would have health insurance with a clean repeal than with the Republican replacement plan, according to C.B.O. estimates.

...

The C.B.O. estimated what would happen after a simple repeal when it considered a bill that Congress passed last year. (President Obama later vetoed that bill.) The bill left parts of Obamacare in place, so the 23 million estimate didn’t come with the kind of detailed analysis that accompanied last week’s score of the American Health Care Act. But the similarity of the two estimates highlights some of the difficulties of the current proposal, both for Democrats, who are strongly criticizing potential coverage losses, and for the repeal-or-die crowd, who hate the structure of this new bill.

Trump warns House Republicans: Pass it or lose your jobs

Quote:
But at a private meeting with House Republicans at the Capitol, the president also delivered a blunt warning that many of those present would lose their seats in next year’s midterm congressional elections if the effort failed.
Does he not understand how politics work? Gallup has his approval rating on the high 30s. You can't push people around when your numbers are in the toilet. 538 has his approval higher, but only at 42.9.

Trump doesn't know how political capital works, and he also apparently doesn't know how to manage his coalition. ACA is not a top tier issue for the white working class except for maybe a few provisions of it, like the cadillac tax and perhaps the coverage mandates that make it more expensive than it has to be. The Republican bill is not what they are looking for and if they pass it they'll lose more seats than if they don't.

Democrats already proved how this works: they didn't pass health care reform in 1993, they lost 54 seats. They did pass it in 2010, they lost 63. The Democrats' failure to pass health care in 1993 didn't lead to follow on effects in subsequent elections. The damage was limited to 1994. Whereas Democrats woes over ACA didn't stop until Donald Trump was elected.

Passing a bad bill will cost Republicans the House in 2018, the Presidency and Senate in 2020. Not passing a bill may allow Republicans to barely keep the House.

Stone told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that he admired Nixon’s resilience and that the tattoo was a daily reminder that “when you get knocked down, when things don`t go your way, when you`re defeated, you got to get up and fight again. It`s simply that.”
It's on his back! How often do any of us see our backs? How can something be a daily reminder on his back?
