I read somewhere last night that Musk already had a commitment to buy 146,000 of these new EV trucks. Maybe the window glasses will be upgraded before delivery? Anyway, the thing is UUUgly!

Judge Ginsburg is indeed hoping to deny Trump another Court pick. She is a committed liberal and means to be a backstop in defense of liberalism above all else. Belief in the Constitution and the Court are secondary.

No doubt Musk wanted the presentation without letting the engineers prove it out first, which is a cliche in technology. That doesn't change the fact that electric cars are the future, though not necessarily ugly ones:

I finished my engineering career in the auto biz. That was over a decade ago and plans were already mapped out. If I remember correctly, producing cars driven by electric motors takes about 1/70th the parts and labor, so the investment class won't let anything else happen.

My next door neighbor is an engineer for Subaru. She tells me that within the next three years all their vehicles will be hybrids. The next step to all-electric will be the charging infrastructure. Your beloved oil is going to be a lot less important very soon.

I should have mentioned the other main players are already getting into Musk's game:

Grieve losing - and very badly - will be one of those moments to stay up for on election night.

Interesting about what period in history Britain is resembling. Last night we watched the final episodes of season three of "Victoria" which has brought the time line to about 1855.

The slippery Lord Palmerston as Foreign Secretary was wary of the Prussians, dismissive of the Russians and inexplicably all for the new Bonaparte becoming the sudden Emperor of France. Lord 'Pam' was even put out with the Greeks over abuse of a British subject. He or one of his colleagues remarked more than once about the Channel being there by 'Divine Providence' for the benefit of Britain.

Some things never change.

David, you are lining them up so far today! Barr's speeches, especially to the Federalist Society, have shaken the rafters of official Washington. Barr knows the extent of this 2016/17 plot, conspiracy and collusion and sedition the Democrats, their media and "Never Trumpers" have dumped on America. All because of an election loss. If this is allowed to become the new norm post elections...God help us.


...this 2016/17 plot, conspiracy and collusion and sedition the Democrats, their media and "Never Trumpers" have dumped on America. All because of an election loss.

It began even before the election - and with the presumption of That Woman's victory, so we were never going to hear about any of it.

I guess I did leave out 'chapter one' of this fandango.

Chapter One Whitewall,

"A daughter of Ukrainian immigrants who maintains strong ties to the Ukrainian-American diaspora and the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, Chalupa, a lawyer by training, in 2014 was doing pro bono work for another client interested in the Ukrainian crisis and began researching Manafort’s role in Yanukovych’s rise, as well as his ties to the pro-Russian oligarchs who funded Yanukovych’s political party."

Aaaand ... no wonder excluded from the Schiff-Show!
