      China might just be seeing that Trump’s not a professional politician whom, like those last one’s Trump talked about, spouted pap while aiding and abetting NK’s offensive nuke missile program. Trump’s rhetoric, as the NK see it, is schoolyard ‘in your face’ talk to the face-conscious NKs is provocative and China doesn’t want to be pushed into backing up its strategic doctrines over Bubba-san’s rantings.
      Note that the exercises are pointed towards the invasion of sovereign Chibese territory by A foreign force equipped with cruise missiles…who might that be? If they start deploying the People’s Sushi and Katsudon Defense Forces we may hsve a better idea of their intentions. As it is I see the exercises aimed at NK, sorta hintin’ that China won’t defend Bubbasan if the US et al go to whack him and his nuke program but China will not put up with a non-Communist North or US/foreign troops on the Yalu.
      NK was a Russian client state for decades and thebjoint Chinese/Russian navies exercises going on in the Med and Baltic seas are another political hint. Also, while the MSM wasn’t showing interest China’s holding a large military exercise in Tibet. What dies thst have to do with the price of cheese, one might ask? India.
      Remember my rants on the decades-old India/China military standoff? Remember my discussion on how
      China’s been busily building dams to cut off some 80% of India’s water supply and building joint-use naval bases around India to contain it? You want a nuclear trigger point? How long do you think India’s going to put up with this before we see the world’s two largest populations going at it? India used to ve another Russian groupie, used heavily as a balance against China, but if Russia and China can reach an accord that will make them the most powerful bloc in the world then India can go under the Sino-Soviet bus. New world, new alliances, same feckless US Congress.

        Thanks Czar, I’ve been trying to figure out what was happening, it seems to me this confirms that there may very well be an uneasy truce that China is resigned to allowing for a pre-emptive strike by the US on Kimmy and his missile sites.

          China’s basically but diplomatically already said that. What they’ve bluntly also said is they will not put up with a regine change to non-Communist or a Korea united under the South. A thin path to tread.
          China’s probably already got a regime-change plan of its own on the table. A nuclear NK might start to put the screws to China at sone point. Also, why should China risk a US war that would leave NK in yurmoil, millions of porential NK refugees pouring north and a military confrontation with the US that might escalate? As I’ve said before China has to have its people inside NK thst they could use to oust Bubbasan (may have accounted for a few of those unexplained top-brass executions) and they may be forced to take that route rather than let things evolve on their own.

      • Remember, just last week Trump, in a speech, spoke of NK being “an embarrassment to China.” China’s culture puts a lot of value on the concept of “face”, and of honor and pride. Their martial arts culture is all about this concept, since the 40s, when they destroyed all the actual martial arts and replaced them with State-regulated “martial arts”.

        They know Trump is right, and they’re not about to lose face here. Good for them, and good on them for caring about their nation. I wish our government cared as much about our nation. That horse left the barn a long time ago.

    I was just talking to a neighbor who lives a few doors down from me. He is pretty practical and aware of things. He seems to know a lot, but is not a know-it-all kind of guy. He said he is pretty sure the eye is going to come right over us. And, he doesn’t think there is any chance of us flooding where we are because we are LOL 125 ft above sea level. But, there has been flooding on the main street that the apt. complex is off of. The other side of the street seems a lot lower and I think that is where the flooding had been. His only concern is the sustained winds. He warned me about limbs breaking off the trees over my apt. He doesn’t have any.

    Anyway, he said if I get in trouble to come to their apt. He already has his son, dil,, and their two babies and I think his grown granddaughter, 3 dogs, and maybe a cat. It will be crowded, but he has apts on both sides of him. I am in the end apt., under trees.

    Sure glad I got my panic attack out of the way early. πŸ™„

      Hey! I’m at 125 feet too, go to your west side and wave, I’ll see if I can see ya.
      Worst thing is if your apt folks haven’t had trees trimmed and/or you haven’t had recent storms that have stripped the more frangible branches, a wet storm where the trees pick up water and get hit by high winds can get messy.
      Expect to see stark nekked trees, our live oaks were bare for many months after Katrina. Interesting how the ground’s carpeted with leaves, twigs and branches after a big one. For K we had the streets litered with acorns too, for weeks it was like driving over bubblewrap everywhere you went. Might be a good idea to hit that package store before it closes, a bit of refreshment to keep your mind from wandering between the storm’s arrival and departure.

    • According to wunderground, I’m 666 ft. above sea level. I don’t know if that’s portentous of anything, but I know we’ll never flood in town, short of “Noah, I want you to build an ark!” flooding.

      Nor does Lake Michigan produce hurricanes. Nor do we get catastrophic earthquakes. Being on Lake Michigan means we don’t even get tornadoes.

      The only hell we face each year is tourists for three months, and windy and cold for nine.

      It’s definitely my safe space.

        Regardless of what eventual conclusions are, I think that men should not send pictures of their equipment on digital equipment. From the headlines the last couple of years, that practice seems to lead to a lot of stress and family problems.

        I don’t use alcohol for similar reasons: the couple of times I enjoyed (emphasis on the verb there) a strawberry margarita double I observed that I was a whole lot more fun than when I didn’t. Boundaries and limits got all interesting and stuff. So I thought about that for a day or so, and about the death of my older sister from alcohol at age 55, and decided it might better if I didn’t use alcohol.

        Wouldn’t a similar line of thinking be helpful if men would think about possible consequences before sending pictures of their junk around? Dunno. Just a thought.

        I’m so sorry for the young man’s choice, if that’s what it was, and certainly would hope that his dad will be able to work through the next two years without doing something similar. There aren’t many pieces left to pick up at this point, for this family. Serious, serious stuff.

If this does turn out to be a suicide it is none of anyone’s business other than his family and those they choose to share the information with. If it is death by suicide the allegations against Eric are not the cause, although they may have been part of catalyst.

      It’s unconscionable that Equifax chose to wait over three months to report this to the public. As for their notifying us in a timely manner should we sign up for their “free” monitoring, color me skeptical.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for help for the people of Texas and Louisiana who are caught in the flooding. And, now we add everyone in the path of Irma to our prayer for safety.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
