TSB: He must not have died then because Reno is in Nevada! (I'm guessing before I read.)
Charlie Bowden wrote in Feb 2008 that the best way to drive yourself crazy in Juarez was to believe the killing was a war between drug cartels because very few of those guys were dying. It was the army and the federales who were fighting to get there share of the drug money.They were seizing tons of marijuana but no cocaine. The US, of course, was a 'CAT NAMED KALAMAZOO!' gwb

TSB: Famous Banker Rob Ebert killed a parking attendant and ruined his $540,000 Ferrari when he had a bad day at the bank this week.
The Maserrati he hit was only worth half as much so no big deal. The parking attendent was nailed to a concrete pillar after 3 barrier were smashed thru.
Ebert could get 'driver's school' for this!
Apple Daily reported the incident earlier, naming Ebert as the driver of a Ferrari 458 Spider that collided with a Maserati exiting the car park.

Ebert was appointed to his current position last month. He joined Deutsche Bank in 1996 and was made Asia head of equity sales excluding Japan in 2010.

TSB: Spokane NAACP chair upended by Facebook picture of her 'black' father cause her mom doesn't do FB. All I know from 50 years ago is you can't get far in Spokane if you are much darker than her. gwb

The Spokane NAACP woman is so fascinating because she personifies the 'race is just a social construct' idea, but in a way that comes back to bite the racialism lobby. Why can't we all call ourselves whatever race or gender we like when applying for colleges, minority set-aside contracting, and quotas of all kinds? If we can, then that restores equality under the law. Brilliant.

TSB: Just a guess, but I think the politicians want all that info for the REQUIRED gerrymandering. I just saw a rep. for the government employees union say that the only reason OPM discovered that all government personnel files were online unencrypted and had been hacked by the Chi-Coms a couple years earlier is that they were testing a new detection tool on their $450 million system and discovered it accidently.

Naturally, the Chinese deny they did it. It happened so long ago they probably forgot! Watch for OPM to announce a $900 million replacement from Cisco called 'Not the Barn Door'! gwb

TSB: My apologies to 'Rachel' in Spokane. I read the Spokesman Review account and it turns out she was quoted in the past as saying she is part white, part African and part Native American. That is based on the fact that WE ALL are from Africa. The black guy she put on Facebook doesn't look much like her Czech father. Her mom and others in the family have been having a feud with her for years over other issues. gwb

TSB: They will never catch those killers now. They have an I-Phone and got the tools from the prison tailor shop supervisor. Too bad we don't have the capability to find a phone. gwb

James: Chinese? Cookie? I see what you did there ...

GWB: Those escapees have done a good job so far, but if they're in a wilderness area, then the NYSP will probably get them if they don't give up first. Their accomplice was supposed to meet them with a car, but she chickened out and they left on foot. It might end in a D.B. Cooper scenario with them both dead in a forest but the bodies never found.

TSB! You finally got James off the golf course for 5 minutes! I forgot to tell you guys I got an electric bicycle in April. It's great and now my wife wants one
because she's sure I'm gonna kill myself on the damn thing. It does 20 miles at 20mph and lots more if you peddle. For about 5 cents worth of electricity. So far only one shoulder injury. Fortunately it has great brakes. gwb (aka Harry Poppins)

TSB: I'm not buying it that these guys are close by. I think it is just a big show by the authorities. For instance, we just learned today that her husband also worked in maintainence in the same area and exactly which items she has admitted giving them.

What are the clothes these guys supposedly left with?
How did they get the power tools needed and what happened to them? There were clearly others involved in these guy's plan and I don't think anyone has a clue who they are. If that's so these guys are long gone and being protected somehow. This could be the great escape! gwb

TSB: After all that 'getting ready for' we now know WHY Hillary wants to be
President. Evidently this Republican administration has been doing nothing to help the hard working middle class and she is going to restore income to those of us hard working fools who aren't bankers or hedge funders. (Like bringing us all a minimum $15/hr LIVING WAGE !!) SO THAT'S IT!! This campaign is about the FUTURE!
IT'S THE ECONOMY STUPID!! AND THE OLD LADIES JUST LOVE HER !! gwb Of course if she falters we might have to vote for the honest socialist and have a weekend at Bernie's! This is going to be the most boring election in centuries!

TSB: Hillary has so many great issues: Constitutional Rights: (women's, men's, gays, transgenders, equal pay,farmworkers, fast food workers, waitresses, restaurant tipping, education, whatever it is it will be equal. Voting for everyone guaranteed from birth, or making it to shore. EYE-D FOR ALL will be all you need with geo-tracker chips for violent prisoners (which, as you know Hillary proposed as a senator.....Forgiveness for student loans, sub-prime car loans and the all new
500 square foot 'Hillary Cottage Home' loans. No more welfare debit cards.. your new
I-phone will do every government sponsored purchase.
Petty crime; no problem.. suspect-like people will all have body cameras that record everything they do and send it to the NSA because good people have nothing to hide.

Hillary will come out against Obama's proposed trade agreements and come up with her own proposal which is exactly the opposite... call it NO MORE NAFTA! It is a bold proposal that will bring jobs home by the millions because big 'CORPS' will have to pay a living wage anywhere in the world and sweat shop owners like NIKE will go to jail. The possibilities are endless... she could win all 50 states because the republicans are led by the likes of John Boehner who can't even beat Nancy Pelosi. Her opp research will reveal Bush having been connected to Mexican oligarchs since his college days. Good luck Rubio, Walker, Paul and the rest! Did I mention infrastructure and the new union jobs for anyone projects? medical marijuana? gwb

TSB; James: Texas is now building a gold depository for state institution and private citizes. They are starting off with $1 billion in bars they stored with HSBC in NYC 2011. They passed a law last week which means the USG cannot confiscate any of it.

According to Vieira, this anti-segwbizure provision rests on Article 1, section 10 of the Constitution of the United States, which obliges the States to not make anything tender in payment of debts apart from gold and silver coin. It's a great day to be a Texan!!gwb

TSB: Poor Rachel !! There were at least 25 black Spokane women set to protest outside today's monthly meeting of the Spokane NAACP probably joined by 3 white housewives. (Picture a neighborhood backyard visit with Hillary with placards)

THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST RACIAL EVENTS IN SPOKANE SINCE THE 1930'S! OF COURSE IT WENT VIRAL ONCE WE STARTED TALKING HERE. gwb I wonder what the job pays? My wife and I both want to move back to Spokane and she's part Chinese and Mexican Indian.
and spends half her days fretting about her hair. (no offense intended) gwb

TSB;James: Good News! We are bombing Libya again! Hillary now has a new defense of her 'leading from behind' foreign policy that started with Libya! Of course mistakes were made, but you do what you have to do and head to a champagne party in Australia or head to the golf course! gwb PS: 15 year old 'little George 'w' got his first squirrel in 2 years today and was really pissed off when I bagged the headless little guy. George wanted the heart and liver for breakfast!

TSB: Up until the early 1980's the biggest drug outfit in Mexico was the HERRERA family in Durango State. They grew all their own stuff on the family farm and had large numbers of family in the US to handle deliveries as far as most of the Midwest. The grandfather/originator of the 'family cartel' was Jaime Herrera. He and his son and grandson ran the thing. In about 1982 Jaime was busted in El Paso by the first person who was ever able to get him to cross the border into the US.
(I guess they didn't have drones back then.) They got Gramps, Son and Grandson and the operation which had dominated Mexico since the 20's was FINIS! The informant was on a plane for home the same afternoon, even came back to testify and the Herrera's were never able to identify or find him. (They were still trying when he died in 2010 at age 82 of natural causes. The DEA paid him only a few hundred bucks because the usual percentage for informant would have been wiped out a big part of their budget. He told DEA to take the check and hide it somewhere inside their lower body... but didn't quit working for them and at the mine.

That informant/miner was about 50 at the time but a good friend of Charlie Bowden later (the DEA chief in El Paso) got him to tell all his stories. My representative is Jaime Herrera-Butler R-WA. Wanna bet 100 Pesos she's related? I'm gonna try to find out even though James probably has better sources both at work and the country club. gwb

James; TSB 'Hill Camp to Keep Health Records Secret'

I didn't read the story, but since I play a doctor on weekends I have a theory on Hillary. Hillary likes to drink with the world's elites. She is a workaholic. I think when she fell on her airplane steps she had been tired, dehydrated and drinking on the flight. When she fell later and hit her head getting sub-dural hematoma she probably delayed going to the hospital while getting the PR set up. That is never a good idea with a sub-dural so she got some temporary damage from the pressure.
Rather than YOGA or in addition to it I think she decided the situation called for an emergency stint in REHAB in January and she's been looking better ever since.
gwb PS: I know from experience what a totally false accusation re: drug and alcohol use can do. Wouldn't put it past the Bush's to pull it since having conceived a black child won't work twice.

TSB: China Mocks G7 As "Gathering Of Debtors", Warns "Confrontation Will Be A Disaster For Europe"
How dare they mock us as a team of 'debtor dinosaurs' ???? We only have $18 billion
(sorry, TRILLLION) of debt since 2000. That's only about a trillion a year and all our politicians since the 60's know that debt doesn't matter.

China mocks us but where is THEIR MAGNA CARTA?? Tir prison system is a pittance compared to ours and you don't see many chi-coms playing baseball like our Carribean players... I'm getting tired! gwb PS: I bet they don't even have golf courses except for hackers!

TSB: I wonder if Putin engineered the jailbreak in Clinton, NY. Did you notice that the info that she provided a cell phone was dropped the same day it was let out by the authorities? I'm thinking that BS was quashed by NSA to avoid people realizing how useless their activities are in a practical sense. They were just putting pressure on her.

Another BS was that the bloodhounds were finding traces of scent all over the 5 sq mile area. (Those were planted scents and it's hard for CNN to interview a blood hound cause they aren't very smart dogs. Another clue it's just a drama was the past weekend when all the spokespeople took it off. They are back now with long faces to say "We don't have a clue." If the woman's plan was to help them escape the
authorities would have given them more info about how she was supposed to drive them somewhere and not be detected. Since this is NY, the whole case will probably dissolve into sealed court files to protect the reputations of the 'Bernie Keraks" who were hoping to get a career boost out of this one. If we could just get James to work..... (his sources) we could crack this thing and he'd have enough cash to become a government consultant on rebuilding the NAVY!! gwb

James: The US Open starts tomorrow in TACOMA,WA!!!!
Have these folks gone mad? Tacoma is a total backwater. To accommodate the crowds they are shutting down the state legislature in Olympia because there are no hotel rooms available for the Sen's and Rep's. within 75 miles of Olympia.

They have a June 30 deadline to reach a 2 year budget or else the state government will shut down, the teachers and state workers won't get their pay increase. The new refinery project about a mile from my house will be endangered cause it will take a $350 million overpass at one intersection to get it started. Anyway, I think this is great! I'm anxious to see what kind of a golf course around here merits the US OPEN. gwb

TSB: More bad news... Rep.Gerald Connolly says his staffers were hacked by the Chi-Coms. He is head of the Committee on IT oversight so you could expect him to be the last to know anything was happening.

I'm pretty sure they got me too but they couldn't get 5 cents for any of my info. But if they got TSB the whole empire could fall!! I wonder if anyone is talking about changing the security clearance system. Yesterday the TSA hearing showed that changes proposed there in 2001 to keep from hiring people on the terrorist watch list still haven't been implemented and the NY dems are saying we need to turn TSA into a police agency to get anywhere. Once we have a national police force we will surely all be safer. I was reminded yesterday that when I was a kid black people had to be out of town in E. Washington and all rural Oregon towns by dark...I mean night time. gwb
