A perfectly reasonable summation:
A comment on my last post.
Daithi Dubh • 9 hours ago If Trumps is acquitted (a near certainty), there'll be continuing trouble. If Trump wins here in 2020 (another near certainty), then we still have trouble. And on, and on, and on . . .
Again, Trump, at best, buys us some time. Use it wisely, because the middle ground of compromise is nearly - if not already - gone. While those who regard infanticide as a right, along with the myriad other forms of tyranny they espouse as progress, should constitute a mission field for us, there is no dwelling together in amity within the same union.
Something to look forward to. Whee.
And yet more reasons you should buy my house
No. Really. If you're a New York resident you have to pay park and rec 30 bucks for a star gazing permit at local parks (60 bucks for out-of-Staters). Some say it's so that you can use the the parks after closing, but as one commenter pointed out. If you're allowed into the park after dark, it's not really closed, is it?
What could possibly be wrong with this?
Here at the ranch, we got one police force: the County Sheriff. He's a pretty nice guy. Had him at a couple of neighborhood barbecues. He and his deputies handle the law around here. But since we don't really have anything in the way of crime, and because each of my neighbors are 'well-heeled', I've only had to call for a deputy's help one time in sixteen years.
We spotted an unknown vehicle driving past our place during a potluck Friday. Since there were only three homes past us, and since one of those at the potluck was one of those home owners, and the other two home owners were not at home, we decided to check out the vehicle.
The 'Texan' and I grabbed a couple of force multipliers and headed out. (actually I grabbed mine. His was already in his truck.) The vehicle in question was parked next to my closest neighbor's house (We knew she was at work.) down a long driveway. We watched a guy carrying stuff out of the house repeatedly, so we put the truck across the drive way, called the Sheriff's office and waited. Took the deputy about 40 minutes to get there (It's a pretty big county.)
Turns out the guy at the house was just retrieving some things of his own (but he hadn't told the home owner he was coming.) and everyone was fine.
Point of this apparent digression is that we don't have enough cops to form a team that would be dedicated to investigating, well...us. And none of us believe in 'hate' crimes. I've yet to come across a criminal who loves their victim. I don't care in the slightest what your motivation is. If you do the crime, you should do the time.
Half way to what????
"Funded with a $2.3 million allocation from the Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development and the Office of Transgender Initiatives, the 'Trans Home' on Washington Street will provide a 'safe shelter and supportive services for 13 new residents, who will share a three-story building with 13 bedrooms, three kitchens and a common living space,' according to the report."
Sooner or later I'll write my piece here on Transanity. But for the moment:
You should buy my house.
