    Good. Now I wonder if the cities are lump together by region and the committee tries to have games in each region. So Cincy would be the in the midwest competing with Chicago, Detroit, and KC.

    Cincinnati: Restaurant News & Info

    I miss Trattoria Roma. It was always a good meal. It didn't have much atmosphere, maybe even a little dumpy, but they did Italian well.

    Mitt Romney

    Private equity in a nutshell. Buy a company with borrowed money. Pay themselves hefty management and consultant fees as they get the company on the "right path". Load the company of up with debit to pay said fees. Debt that prevents the company from functioning. Either bankruptcy or sold again. Pay little or not taxes thanks to the Carried Interest. 'merica.

    Hurricane Irma

    ALERT!, ALERT! All gun owners head down to Florida ASAP. Bring your family and like-minded friends. Only you and your stock-pile of guns can save 'Merica. Florida gun owners encouraged to 'shoot the storm' and fire their guns at Hurricane Irma Graphics suggesting how to shoot at a hurricane have sprung up online, with the suggestion that if you fire correctly the bullet might not come back and kill you. Since Mr Edwards came up with his "masterplan", other similar Facebook pages have been created - including one suggesting using flame throwers to scare away the storm. "It's time we took a stand against this bully!" reads the event description. "This is our home, nobody drives us out of our own territory. "Join me in this fight as we shoot flames at Hurricane Irma and dissipate her on the spot."

    The Trump Presidency

    Current Justice Dept bailing on another alt-right "outrage". Another nothing burger that the hard-right insisted was the end of days. Trump DOJ declines to charge Lois Lerner in IRS scandal WASHINGTON — The Trump administration said Friday it won't charge a key IRS figure in the mistreatment of conservative political groups during the 2010 and 2012 elections. In a letter to members of Congress, the Justice Department said that "reopening the criminal investigation would not be appropriate based on the available evidence." http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/09/08/doj-declines-to-charge-lois-lerner-in-irs-scandal.html
  8. That $5 billion is an interesting number since that's nearly the exact same amount the new Apple Headquarters cost to build. That should give people an idea the scale they're talking about.

    The racist Wisconsin GOP redistricting is headed to the Supreme Court, even being questioned by Kasich and Schwarzenegger. Of course Ohio joins North Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin in setting up their racist gerrymandering. Kasich joins Schwarzenegger in political map-making fight Kasich signed onto a legal brief that opposes the GOP in the momentous redistricting case being heard by the U.S. Supreme Court this fall. He said other signers include Republicans John McCain, Richard Lugar and Bob Dole. At issue is whether Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin drew legislative districts that favored their party and were so out of whack with the state’s political breakdown that they violated Democratic voters’ constitutional rights. In Ohio, the Republican-controlled map-making system resulted in the party winning nearly two more U.S. House seats and five more Ohio House seats in the last election than would have been expected in neutral circumstances, according to the AP analysis. In congressional races, Republican candidates won 56 percent of the vote in Ohio but 75 percent of the seats. http://www.wcpo.com/news/state/state-ohio/kasich-joins-schwarzenegger-in-political-map-making-fight

    So since this guy hypothesizes about a result you so desperately want to see become reality, it is not fake news? Good to know we can now rely on The Nation for news which you will trust as valid. As for the theory in the article, I'm not ruling it out, but it still flies in the face of what Trump OWN INTELLIGENCE AGENCY appointments have concluded. And, regardless of how the info was stolen, hacked, or leaked, it was certainly used by the Russians in their support for The Donald...... you know, the support which The Donald knew he was getting (as conclusively, beyond a shadow of a doubt evidenced by the incriminating email chain between his son and who his son thought was a Russian surrogate). Read this story again. There is now a huge retraction. https://www.thenation.com/article/a-new-report-raises-big-questions-about-last-years-dnc-hack/

    The Trump Presidency

    just for the record, I posted that Nation story two days ago in another thread but it doesn't hurt to repeat it ;) . But you know if it's not the Russian "scandal" it has to be something. None of this Trump-bashing has anything to do with finding the truth. It's about getting rid of him. Now we've moved on the Charlottesville. The false narrative about Trump is mind-boggling. It's the classic example of how people believe a lie to be the truth when repeated enough. I can't believe all the headlines that virtually make Trump look like a Nazi sympathizer when the fact is he's denounced them, as well as all white supremacists and hate groups on the right, over and over for the past year. He just had the temerity to suggest that Antifa, with its goon-like gestapo tactics was also responsible for the violence in Charlottesville. And the mainstream press wonders why it's held in such low regard. I'm sure Ram and eastvd were eagerly about to post this retraction from The Nation. The Nation adds lengthy editor's note to story questioning DNC hack The Nation magazine acknowledged on Friday that an article claiming it would have been "impossible based on the data” for Russia-backed hackers to be behind the leak of Democratic National Committee emails was not supported by its own evidence. The article, penned by reporter Patrick Lawrence and published in early August, hinged on technical claims roundly disputed by technical experts — including the expert brought in by The Nation in its review of the article. http://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/348879-the-nation-adds-lengthy-editors-note-to-story-debunking-dnc-hack

    Terrorism / Mass Shootings

    EXCLUSIVE - FBI and DHS Warned of Growing Threat From White Supremacists Months Ago The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security in May warned that white supremacist groups had already carried out more attacks than any other domestic extremist group over the past 16 years and were likely to carry out more attacks over the next year, according to an intelligence bulletin obtained by Foreign Policy. (unlike Trump) ...The FBI, on the other hand, has already concluded that white supremacists, including neo-Nazi supporters and members of the Ku Klux Klan, are in fact responsible for the lion’s share of violent attacks among domestic extremist groups. White supremacists “were responsible for 49 homicides in 26 attacks from 2000 to 2016 … http://foreignpolicy.com/2017/08/14/fbi-and-dhs-warned-of-growing-threat-from-white-supremacists-months-ago/?utm_content=buffer48f0f&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

    More racist GOP voting suppression. This time in Indiana. Republicans limiting early voting in Marion County, letting it bloom in suburbs State and local Republicans have expanded early voting in GOP-dominated areas and restricted it in Democratic areas, an IndyStar investigation has found. From 2008 to 2016, GOP officials expanded early voting stations in Republican dominated Hamilton County, IndyStar's analysis found, and decreased them in the state's biggest Democratic hotbed, Marion County. Most telling, Hamilton County saw a 63 percent increase in absentee voting from 2008 to 2016, while Marion County saw a 26 percent decline. ..Marion County, which tends to vote Democratic, and has a large African-American population. http://www.indystar.com/story/news/2017/08/10/silencing-vote-data-shows-unequal-barrier-indiana-polls/435450001/

    Cutting the Cord

    One thing I recently noticed with my cable (spectrum) is most of the channels I watch have their shows on demand. So now I'm seriously questioning the need for the DVR service. Right now I'm leaning toward bare bones cable while subscribing to a streaming service for short periods of time. I have Amazon Prime free for 6 months thanks to a Sprint offer(along with Tidal for another 6 months for music streaming). Just finished a show called Patriot that was pleasantly very good but I don't think there's too many Prime must watch shows and will drop it after the 6 months. I currently have DirectTV Now free for a month including HBO(for GOT). I'll pay for one month to finish up GOT and catch up on some VOD shows(The Young Pope and Leftovers) then I'll drop it. DirectTV Now is interesting but initially I had serious connection issues but it has settled down substantially. I kept my eyes on Netflix for any shows that interest me but right I don't have to subscribe. And around it goes. This all reminds me of Energy Choice Ohio. If you want the lowest rate on your electric you have to keep switching providers every 3 months or sooner. It's a game I've gotten pretty good at, but you can get burn.
