Pelosi

In the next two years, you will need a ruthless person who knows where the bodies are buried and all the legislative tricks that can be tried. Pelosi is that person. If there is one person that will not be run over or snookered by the Senate and Trump, it’s Pelosi.

This is not the time for ‘on the job’ training in fighting the Thugs. You find someone who can match her skill, resolve, and plain out mean let me know.

Avenatti

There seem to be a lot of posts these days about Avenatti. Many of them wish that he would go away. I can understand why not having him on center stage would be desirable. He is who he is and none of his actions should be surprising. In addition, he represents Stormy Daniels and the path they take may not always be one that perfectly aligns with what you may consider to be a better one for resisting Trump.

I will always be grateful to them for their actions, especially the earlier ones. For a crucial period of time, Avenatti and Stormy were the only voices breaking through and criticizing Trump. Every time her name came up, people were reminded of just how unsavory The Donald could be.

In addition, they could not be cowed or insulted into a caricature. Trump seemed to be wary of going after them. Their indifference to his attacks bewildered him and disarmed him. He had perfected that method for dealing with adversaries and had never really developed another effective strategy.

They were a constant reminder of Trump’s darker side. Those in the Trump cult would never believe them but for those who still had doubts, this was one problem that would stick to Trump. If not for Avenatti, the only voices seemed to be MSM pieces that seemed to be bewildered by Orangeman. I will never understand why they did not dissect him mercilessly and keep writing stories that would clearly expose his lies. They seemed to think they had to balance the type of stories they wrote about each side. The fact that he was an irredeemable asshole with no good side seemed to escape them.

We do not owe Avenatti donations for some campaign he seems to be planning or votes for any position he desires. He also still deserves to have his actions checked and no free pass if we think he is wrong. However, I also think that Avenatti and Stormy have earned a place on the stage where Trump is presented. She deserves her day in court and I hope they refile their case in some form. They aren’t perfect allies but who is? They are not nearly as bad as some people who should know better. I’m not going to pretend now that they don’t belong on our side. They walked point for a long time.

Florence gonna be a Category "Oh Shit"

<snip>
As of Tuesday evening, Florence had sustained winds of 140 mph — a strong Category 4. But it could soon get more powerful. On its current path, Florence will traverse the bathwater-warm Gulf Stream — source of rocket fuel for hurricanes — and likely strengthen further, perhaps reaching Category 5. That could turn Florence into one of the most powerful hurricanes in U.S. history.

Florence poses three main threats: wind, heavy rain, and storm surge (the wall of water pushed ashore when a storm makes landfall). All three could come in record quantities simultaneously.

Since 1851, only three other hurricanes have targeted the Carolinas at Category-4 strength or stronger, with Hugo in 1989 the most recent. In the generation since Hugo hit, millions more people have moved to the southeast coast — greatly increasing the region’s vulnerability. Winds as strong as Florence’s will produce “catastrophic” damage, according to the National Hurricane Center’s explanation of the Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale. “Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.”

RE Florence: We in trouble.

And we are probably in more trouble than we can even imagine.

Gone get blowed away.

Been through Hazel and Hugo.
Luckily Matthew blew down eleventy billion trees. That may be a blessing in disguise.

I am as safe here as anywhere. A storm that size will cover the entire state. Those in flood zones or on the coast, GET OUT!

Not fretting. Just preparing.
Can’t do nothing about the storm.
