The $92 Million Cancellation

I know that I said that I was going to unplug, but I still have Twitter, so it’s not entirely possible.

I note this morning that the $92 Million Parade has now been cancelled. If you are surprised by this, you don’t understand how government actually works.

Look, I‘ve had my say about the Parade. I stand by what I said and I still believe it. There was no reason or benefit to it, and all it was really going to do was screw over the Troops who had to participate.

Major League Baseball Commissioner Baron von Manfred has decided that expansion of MLB is going to happen. He has a list of six cities he feels could be the best fit. Obviously, I have an opinion about each of them as well as expansion.

Dave’s medical appointment was pretty typical of the way we do medical care these days. Thank goodness you can “Register Today and Save!!!!”

This mornings press conference with Trump and Putin was less press conference than it was political theatre, to be viewed solely through the lens of your own political viewpoint rather than anything that was or was not actually said…

PopScience has a great article dealing with how YOU should be responsible for YOUR own safety on the interwebs since the government won’t do it for you (alas, in their view). Ultimately, it should cause us to think about the way that our government works today. How is it that the FCC, and executive department, can make “rules” that have not been debated or passed by Congress?
