Rob Long is in for Jim again Thursday. Today, Rob and Greg applaud Seattle businesses for suing the city for failing to provide essential services while local politicians coddled the radicals in the CHAZ/CHOP area. They also react to revelations in Peter Strzok’s notes that Barack Obama and Joe Biden were in on the planning to target Michael Flynn and the Trump administration. And they unload on leftist radicals and their enablers as what supposedly started as an effort to rein in police brutality is now focused on tearing down a statue celebrating emancipation, destroying Mount Rushmore, and changing our national anthem.

    I suggest that ads in rapid spanish are quite distracting.

    You would prefer them to speak more slowly?

    Hasn’t the Supreme Court ruled in the past that police departments have no legal obligation to protect any particular individual? Wouldn’t that be the same for individual businesses too? Seems like these lawsuits are headed for dismissal, especially in a place like Seattle with lower courts populated by judges (and juries) selected from… Seattle.

    I recall eight years of “selected not elected” and “stole two elections” during the Bush 43 years. 

    Oh, and Bush 41 won only because of the (Al Gore initiated) Willie Horton issue, Reagan won only because of illicit deals with Iran in a clear violation of the Logan act, and Nixon used the Southern Strategy to retroactively make Lincoln a Democrat.

    Delegitimizing Republican victories is kind of their thing.

    It may soon become Gary’s thing too.

    I’m learning Spanish…so, yes. Más despacio, por favor.

    Until you can keep up, you haven’t learned it, yet. What I have noticed is that they seem to have many more multi-syllabic words and phrases compared to English to express the same thoughts. This is why they speak so quickly.

    As one minor example, there is a song called “Cielo Rojo.” What do those five syllables translate to in English? “Red Sky.”

    I’m trying to watch Spanish content on Netflix, telenovelas, noticias, weather, more weather, still more weather…

    it’s for language practice, honey, honest.
