Monday's Child is Full of Links




1.  Community policing.

2.  Have the Dems gone from 7 Dwarves to 20 Smurfs? And even if they have, that still may be better than 1 Gargamel. Though Trump seems to me more like Dr. Robotnik. The question is this: Who is Snively, McConnell or Pence?

3. A pretty good description of why the Dems are going to lose the 2020 Pres election, and they just don't care. In fact, the idiot who wrote this doesn't even know.  They all just have a bunch of demands.

4. Down the fracking hole.


5.   Jeremy Corbyn finds that it's hard out here for a wimp.

6.  I missed 9 of 43. Can you do better? It's not easy.

7.  Don't understand how a suicide bomb attack means we have to keep troops in Syria.  Don't know why we are there at all. Without U.S. involvement, there would BE no ISIS in the first place. I don't mean the Iranian canard; I just mean conditions.  We always get it wrong, and make things worse. Stop doing that.

8.  Weaponized Interdependence.

9. Is it getting harder to inluence the Fed?  You have to recognize that Congress could still do it.  And if it wants to, it can.

10.  JBJ Soul Kitchen: Livin' on a prayer.

11.  "All your base are belong to us."  Original video source, here's description.

12.  Piece of evidence #39,671 that journalists don't understand transaction costs: Ugly food is "wasted" because it will be damaged or not survive shipping

13. Aaron Sorkin pretty much tells everyone under 30 to get off his lawn.  Just another grouchy old guy.

14. Back to the caves.

15.  What was Rudy G thinking?

Grand Lagniappe:   This image is a Rorschach for our age.  I think it is one of the creepiest things I've ever seen. When I said this on twitter, a lot of people protested the young man was "provoked." But that's beside the point. Whatever else is true, this image, by itself and without context, is chilling and will be famous.  However, it turns out that the entire video tells a MUCH different story. A watershed moment: you see an image, you see the story someone else has attached to it, and you share, both the photo and emotional reaction. But there is no reason to believe the image tells the whole story, or that your outrage is justified. Here is Nick Sandmann's statement, if you haven't seen it already, about the context for the photo.UPDATE: From WaPo. UPDATE 2: The collapse of context.

Missed nine as well, and I'm not even an American.
