Time to stock up. The Trump admin is banning all flavors of e-juice except tobacco.

So far...

Freedom!

If you have Netflix and enjoy dark humor...

I highly suggest you check out “AfterLife”.

It’s written by and stars Ricky Gervais. I don’t know his politics and don’t care. He’s British, swears a lot, and made a hell of a show. It’s only 6 episodes. We binged it. It’s that good.

White House: Trump OK with second shutdown over border spat

“WASHINGTON (AP) — Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney says President Donald Trump is prepared for another government shutdown if Congress won't work with him to secure the southern border.

Mulvaney says Trump doesn't want to see federal agencies closed again and doesn't want to declare a national emergency either. But he says Trump is prepared to do either.

He says Trump agreed to reopen the government for three weeks to give Democrats a chance to negotiate. Mulvaney says some Democrats agree with Trump's plan to better secure the border, but said they couldn't work with the White House as long as there was a partial government shutdown.

Mulvaney spoke Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" and "Fox News Sunday."

Short article. No more at link.

So...

We all know Nancy isn’t giving money for his wall. So which do you think is more likely?

On Tuesday I will vote for a Republican for the first time in my life.

Governor Sununu has done a fantastic job and I will vote to re-elect him. I didn’t vote for him two years ago. Thankfully he won anyway. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by what he’s done. Credit where it’s due.

Also for the first time: I will not be voting for the Democrat house candidate. I’ll be voting for the libertarian on the ballot. Sure. It may be a throwaway vote but I just really don’t care. I’m sick of the bullshit from both major parties.

Libertarians keep promising to move to NH en masse. I wish they’d hurry up already.

Happy voting.

Wow: Trump will ask athletes who kneel during anthem to recommend people for pardoning

(Snip)
"I'm going to ask them to recommend to me people who were unfairly treated," Trump said at White House Friday. Trump's contentious relationship with the NFL reached a peak last year when he lambasted players who took a knee during the National Anthem to protest institutionalized racism and police brutality.

"You have a lot of people in the NFL in particular, but in sports leagues, they're not proud enough to stand for our National Anthem. I don't like that," Trump said Friday, also insisting that players should not remain in the locker room when the "Star Spangled Banner" is playing.

"What I'm going to do is, I'm going to say to them instead of talk ... I am going to ask all of those people to recommend to me -- because that's what they're protesting -- people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system," Trump said. "And I understand that."

He added, "If the athletes have friends of theirs or people they know about that have been unfairly treated by the system, let me know.”

I don’t know what’s going on with Trump right now but I like it. Credit where it’s due. This is smart.

Trump says he is likely to support ending federal ban on marijuana

President Trump said he likely will support a congressional effort to end the federal ban on marijuana, a major step that would reshape the pot industry and end the threat of a Justice Department crackdown.

Trump’s remarks put him sharply at odds with Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions on the issue. The bill in question, pushed by a bipartisan coalition, would allow states to go forward with legalization unencumbered by threats of federal prosecution.

Trump made his comments to a gaggle of reporters Friday morning just before he boarded a helicopter on his way to the G-7 summit in Canada. His remarks came the day after the bipartisan group of lawmakers proposed their measure.

One of the lead sponsors is Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), who is aligned with Trump on several issues but recently has tangled with the administration over the Justice Department’s threatened crackdowns on marijuana.

I will sing his praises from the rooftops if he does this.

Mike Huckabee finally nailed one.

Good God. *Congressional Candidate In Virginia Admits Hes A Pedophile*

He’s an (I) so no need to tear each other apart. What the hell does this say about the state of politics in this country when a guy like this thinks he can hold a public office.


————
Nathan Larson, a 37-year-old accountant from Charlottesville, Virginia, is running for Congress as an independent candidate in his native state. He is also a pedophile, as he admitted to HuffPost on Thursday, who has bragged in website posts about raping his late ex-wife.

In a phone call, Larson confirmed that he created the now-defunct websites suiped.org and incelocalypse.today ― chat rooms that served as gathering places for pedophiles and violence-minded misogynists like himself. HuffPost contacted Larson after confirming that his campaign website shared an IP address with these forums, among others. His sites were terminated by their domain host on Tuesday.

On the phone, he was open about his pedophilia and seemingly unfazed about his long odds of attaining government office.

“A lot of people are tired of political correctness and being constrained by it,” he said. “People prefer when there’s an outsider who doesn’t have anything to lose and is willing to say what’s on a lot of people’s minds.”

Updated: I just found a dead deer on the edge of our property.

I’ve no idea what to do. Fish & Game is closed. Everything is closed. Suggestions? Anyone?

Update: I did as many of you (and Fish & Game) suggested and left it alone. There were two hot days last week where it stunk pretty bad but wasn’t unbearable at the house - even with the windows open.

Today I went to check the progress and to my surprise, there is nothing left but two legs and some hair. Even the bones (other than those legs) are gone. No skull, no nothing.

Damn. I really wanted that skull.
