I saw something the other day where windowless planes are on the way.

Domestic airlines briefly had outside views on the seat back screens, it was pretty cool. I like the ability to track my flight enroute, but a frontal view, pilots POV would be awesome. hell, I would even pay a little for it.

Yeah, I love the flight tracker feature.

Geez Fritz, it's pretty interesting that the numbers in both those graphs, Trump supporters and white Trump supporters, are EXACTLY the same. Seems a bit ... odd. If real, maybe it's because all Trump supporters are white? So what's your interpretation of this? Any deep thoughts here?

The investigation that ended in Clinton being impeached took 4 years. EdwardT is either impatient, scared his hero will get busted, or stupid... or all the above.

New SDNY Cohen filing: "Cohen acted with the intent to influence the 2016 presidential election [by committing campaign finance crimes] ... Cohen himself has now admitted, with respect to both payments, he acted in coordination with and at the direction of Individual-1."


I guess DT is just going to say "Well, of course I knew. I mean....duh." or something.

Of course, paying of the women isn't "Russia," but so far Trump has been pretty much confirmed at lying about every accusation. Why would "Russia" be different? I mean - didn't anyone read the story of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf?"

Flight tracker can be interesting. It can also be an interminable curse, 5 hours into a flight when you just don't seem to be getting any nearer your destination. Then you see the plane actually headed in the wrong direction due to flight control diversion.

That's when old Dingbat starts to come unglued.

You gotta love it.


ps. I'm waiting to board a 4 hour flight to bring me home, right now.

I don't see EdwardT as a raving Trump fan so much as enjoying pushing the buttons of anyone he thinks is on the Left.

The Mueller investigation has already been an outstanding success.

From the New York Times:

In crediting Mr. Cohen with providing “substantial and significant efforts” to assist the investigation, Mr. Mueller’s separate sentencing memo details new evidence of collusion with Russia, including a previously unreported phone conversation in November 2015 between Mr. Cohen and an unnamed Russian who claimed to be a “trusted person” in Moscow. The Russian explained to Mr. Cohen how the Russian government could provide the Trump campaign with “political synergy” and “synergy on a government level,” and offered to set up a meeting between Mr. Trump, then a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, and President Vladimir Putin of Russia.

QuoteThe special counsel focuses on Mr. Cohen’s contacts with people connected to the White House in 2017 and 2018, possibly further implicating the president and others in his orbit in conspiracy to obstruct justice or to suborn perjury. Mr. Mueller specifically mentions that Mr. Cohen provided invaluable insight into the “preparing and circulating” of his testimony to Congress — and if others, including the president, knew about the false testimony or encouraged it in any way, they would be at substantial legal risk.

Mr. Trump’s legal woes do not end there. The special counsel also advanced the president’s potential exposure under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act for activities relating to a potential Trump Tower Moscow. Mr. Mueller noted that the Moscow project was a lucrative business opportunity that actively sought Russian government approval, and that the unnamed Russian told Mr. Cohen that there was “no bigger warranty in any project than the consent” of Mr. Putin.
