  • Nancy Balks on Impeachment

    So, what does she know that caused this?

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an interview that she opposes moving to impeach President Trump even though she believes he is “unfit” for office — her first definitive statement on the subject and one that stands to alienate members of her own Democratic Party who are intent on ousting the president.

    “I’m not for impeachment,” she said in a March 6 interview conducted for a future issue of The Washington Post Magazine.

    “This is news,” she added. “I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this, impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”

    Something just happened, what…is yet to be seen.

    6 Nations Round 4 2019 Weekend, and My Favorite Day Of The Year OPEN

    Its the Welsh! They are at the top of the table with no losses. They are at The Scots in Legendary Murrayfield. The Scots will give them a good run, but I don’t think that the Welsh will be denied and win this one.

    England is hosting Italy later today and should stomp the dog snot out of the pizanos at Twickenham. But, the Italians have better food, prettier women, and a generally better outlook on life…they just aren’t very good at rugby.

    Tomorrow is the big one, France has to travel to Dublin to face a very pissed off Irish team. The Irish were to be the team to beat but they lost to England…and then the next week, the Welsh bled the Rose white to take control of the table. It’s the Welsh’s tournament to lose now as they are the only undefeated team. Next week the Irish have to go to Cardiff and play in what will be the noisiest stadium in the history of mankind. If Wales carry the the next two games, they are the 6 Nations Champions with a Grand Slam to boot.

    And, it’s my favorite day of the year. Today is the Day of Surplus. Today, the Puti and I will go to the Country Club and pay my membership. Enough of a surplus was made last year to enjoy this luxury. Hard work reaps results and has benefits, Thank GOD for this.

    To Meuller or not to Meuller?

    Is today the day it ends?

    also: More From the “They Quit Teaching Econ For a Reason File:

    Do note the headline versus the excellent news:

    A more encompassing unemployment rate that counts discouraged workers as well as those holding jobs part-time for economic reasons, often called the “real” unemployment rate, plunged to 7.3 percent in February from 8.1 percent in January. Those employed part-time for economic reasons tumbled by 837,000 to 4.3 million while those completing temporary jobs fell by 225,000, which a Labor Department office said was a consequence of the government shutdown that ended in late February.

    Among major worker groups, the jobless rate for Hispanics also declined sharply to 4.3 percent from 4.9 percent in January. The rate for African-Americans rose two-tenths of a point to 7 percent, while the level for whites declined to 3.3 percent from 3.5 percent.

    There was other good news in the report: Average hourly earnings increased by 3.4 percent on a year-over-year basis, easily the best of the economic recovery that began nearly 10 years ago. That compares to a 1.5 percent increase in the consumer price index for all urban consumers from January 2018 to January 2019. Economists had been expecting an increase of 3.2 percent.
