TSB: That is a high quality likeness! I only partied once and that was in the 80's but I got some new hair stuff so I might be ready to get back into it. My tan is lookin good after 2 months of perfect weather. Has he endorsed this stuff yet??

UW crew program changing how it counts women under Title IX
Originally published August 25, 2017 at 9:39 am Updated August 26, 2017 at 6:53 pm The UWashington Huskies Women have been scamming the federal subsidies for decades... this one by claiming roughly 2x the number of women as actually participated so they could qualify for Title IX funds. When they got caught they lied about it but naturally there will be no penalties and it will continue. You can mess with professional, I mean NCAA sports. They want what they want: high salaries and taxpayer funding!! (naturally, I'm in favor of a government shutdown-drain the swamp) gwb

TSB: There could be a lot of new slots opening at STATE pretty soon: Tillerson Out? "Frustrated" Trump "Fed Up" With Secretary Of State: Axios gwb

GWB: Frankly, I tune out all the unsourced news stories and many of the sourced ones, too, so I have no expectation of wholesale changes or resignations. Washington media of every kind seems to be in a constant frenzy, and it's best to ignore them. That what you'll avoid 9 or 10 hysterical non-stories for every one that actually pans out.

Good advice. I sometimes feel Trump is screwing with the media big time and they just can't help themselves.
Listen to TSB.
PS. Water coloring is all the rage here in Texas at the moment. They've got a lot of water down in Houston, but they live under water most of the time anyway.

The TSB abides.

To expand on my Trump thought. He reminds me a lot of the little boy who's found a big paper wasp nest (MSM). Well as any little boy he just has to poke or chunk a rock at the nest. Of course they'll fly around madly and sting anything they think is an enemy and their stings hurt especially if enough of them get you. But the urge to poke them is irresistible and they'll around blindly and madly.......... every time.

TSB: Here is an unnsourced news story. Israel Threatens To Bomb Assad's Presidential Palace ... I thought the cease fire would be very important in Syria... And I like going to ZH because they are always emphasizing how the US establishment/media will do anything to satisfy AIPAC. I wonder how that Isreali Palestine peace agreement is coming along? gwb

TSB: I've heard estimates of Houston damage between 50 and 100 billion but I'm with one guy who says $500 billion minimum in the next few months. These two sum up the biggest problem I think:

Black mold sure is going to matter a lot more than most people understand. Many homes will be destroyed by it, especially because of the prolonged soaking. Standing water will also become a big problem as it will become toxic very quickly with the summer heat. Houston is just beginning with it's problems.

Toxicosis's picture

I agree, stachybotrus and penicillinum molds will be running rampant. And the increase in E.Coli, and possibly cholera or typhoid might become a major issue and fast. Dead floating animals will be a dead giveaway that infection is just waiting to hatch.......

The toxic molds will have an incredible long term effect on immune systems, mainly leading to compromised respiratory and GI systems and producing all the autoimmune diseases. Huge long term medical costs and disability. It sounds crazy but they should move all the lower income people to someplace dry and hot as soon as possible for the next 3-5 years. If I had a good job in Houston right now I would get out of there as fast as I could with only the stuff I could carry on an airplane back to Washington state or maybe Mexico. gwb
