Happy Birthday and Open Thread

It's never my birthday until I see a chocolate cupcake with icing and a cherry on top!

I'm grateful to be younger than the candidates running for President.

Birthday wishes (and donations for a birthday drink, paypal here) are welcome.

This is an open thread, all topics welcome.

    Hope you enjoy your cupcake and do a little bit of partying! Sometimes just being younger than someone else is good enough.

    Thanks as always for all you do for us, providing a space to learn, converse, and vent. Much appreciated!

    and remember, you're also nearly three months younger than I am!

    A pint in your honor with a traditional Irish birthday toast:

    "May you live to be one hundred years -- with one extra year to repent."

    Aloha.

    in testimony before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security, went further than in the past in vindicating Mrs. Clinton of wrongdoing stating that she broke no laws governing the handling of classified data. Comey said "we have no evidence that's sufficient to justify the conclusion that she violated any of the statutes with respect to classified information."

    statement were getting nearly the play. I had a Facebook skirmish with someone yesterday who had only herd the original version. Of course he then defaulted to the 'well I hate Hillary anyway' stance, so the facts don't matter to everyone...but I do know other people that this matters to.

    Director Comey's response to Senator Sasse (R.NE) was a walk -back.  And, an unde-reported one at that. But, it will surely be used by the Clinton Campaign...not for the various Republican basket cases, but for others.

    ... the benefit of the doubt here, because I really don't believe that he actually understands how the Cuban Embargo law works.

    I mean, why else would this emptiest of Brooks Bros. suits retweet a nonsensically misleading pro-Trumpian post from "Capitol Hill Cubans," which was hastily written in panicked response to Ken Eichenwald's latest Newsweek exposé about Trump's willful circumvention of that embargo law for his own perceived benefit?

    Florida deserves better than this intellectual flyweight. Whether Floridians actually think they do, well, that's another matter entirely.

    Aloha.
