    I’m hoping you get in a good post before the end times. What kind of tires do you use for radioactive fallout? Fat tires for nuclear winter?
    Don’t leave us hanging!

    Ah, the good old days.

  3. Sharon Says:

    Danger – crisis ahead. Glad we have our best guys working on it. We’re f$7ked.

  4. Pat O'Brien Says:

    Kinda takes the pissing contest to a whole new level, don’t it? Next thing you know Kim and Orange will get a tape measure and whip out their ding dongs.

  5. Libby Says:

    Yup, as Sharon said the best people.

    I was waiting in an automotive tire store the other day where they had Faux News going in the waiting room. As they blathered on about North Korea’s nuke program and the Greasy Orange Turd’s threats against them I asked, “Which one of these guys is nuttier, Trump or Kim?” As you might guess I soon received a wide-ranging rant from a guy (if he bothered to show up at the polls at all) most likely voted for the current-occupant-of-the-White House. Are there ANY adults involved here? Gawd help us all!!!

    Question: Since Trumps Hitler, how many people has he rounded up so far? I will admit though he is turd that you just can’t polish.

    On the other hand I think about eight years ago another president came into office sweeping both the House and Senate and there were few people in my family that thought that he was the antichrist. I said “relax he is just a politician.” Granted Barack and I are about the same age (boy does that make me feel old) and I think that this whole healthcare debacle was planned in advance.

    He effectively snookered the insurance companies and us, creating a system that was designed to fail,so we would have to switch over to a single payer system. The one thing that you can say about Barack Obama was that he was a very gifted politician. Unfortunately, he did weaken the United States position in the world and the almost destroyed the Democratic Party in the interim. So what you guys can do now is instead of bitching and moaning, Democrats need to come up with a plan.

    FDR was elected for four terms, the most in the history of the country. The guy couldn’t walk but he definitely had a plan.

    • Pat O'Brien Says:

      Here’s a plan. I agree with most of it.

      I tried to find Trump’s plan. He doesn’t have one on his campaign website. Plenty of news outlets have lists of his positions on the issues. Take your pick.

      Sheryl and Gary is a good match. She is a very good bass player and she rode up Alpe d’Huez without stopping. Nice pick Mike.

      • khal spencer Says:

        Trump couldn’t find his ass with both hands, to say nothing of a plan. But Mike Frye is correct with one point: the Dems seem adept at pulling defeat from the jaws of victory and show no signs of escaping the Judean People’s Front Syndrome. We’re fucked.

    • larryatcycleitalia Says:

      Mike – Trump hasn’t (yet) become Hitler. I’d say right now he’s more like Nixon? And even Tricky Dicky brought us the EPA so he wasn’t all bad. A whole s__t-load of folks have healthcare and don’t forget the plan they enacted was pretty much the plan of the Heritage Foundation, no? As to the Democrats “plan” – it was “more of the same” as an extension of the Obama years. You remember those – the ones where we got out of the recession (more or less) left us by W and tried to get out of the wars the same fellow started.
      Dunno now often you get out of the US of A, but I’m old enough to remember apologizing to pretty much everyone in Italy for W, then taking their congratulations on Obama and now taking plenty of crap about the Greasy Orange Turd now in the White House. I’d say the US position in the world’s been made weaker by bailing on the Paris accords, not to mention the nutball rhetoric about the DPRK and Kim.
      So let’s hear about plans – does the Greasy Orange Turd have one other than to make himself and the rest of his crime family rich?

    Your umbrella would come in handy right now in Bibleburg. It’s pouring and mostly no pictures on live streaming…a less than 10k to go. Standing water in the road

    • Libby Says:

      ^^^Colorado Classic stage 1

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Hey, Libby … yep, it’s been raining in Colorado for the better part of quite some time, and my man Hal is just about over it. What you saw in Colorado Springs is the upshot of not funding stormwater projects, which has led to another sort of precipitation, to wit, a pissing match. I expect the surf was up in front of our old place today.

      • Libby Says:

        The rain stopped for the finale. The fixed camera past the finish line panned out while waiting for the finish. So I was able to see the big edifice at the finish line was The Gazette (I cheered it – your onetime employer?). I saw a sign for The Melting Pot and Marco’s across the street. Looking across a highway there was a Spring Inn sign. Earlier in the race there was much more of a crowd. Many must have left after a thorough drenching. Officials and marshals had their hands full today.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        Libby, The Gazette (formerly the Gazette Telegraph), was my second daily. The first, the Colorado Springs Sun, is no longer with us.

        That course usually draws a crowd at the finish (the USOC has its HQ at the corner of Colorado and Tejon), at the Ridge Road climb through the Garden of the Gods, and pretty much nowhere else. Last time I watched in person there wasn’t much in the way of an audience.

        It’s been a lot of years, but I think the old Colorado Cyclist course, which also used the GoG but went into Manitou instead of Bibleburg, drew more of a crowd. I had hair when I covered that one, and a damn sight less white in the beard.

    Oh oh…the picture of you with umbrella shows Mick Fleetwood Crazy Eyes. You sure you are not back on the bong? Actually parts of Michigan have applied for flood relief funds from Warshentin by jingo. Meanwhile 60 miles down the road some of us are drier than a popcorn fart. While trying to break a bad habit of not living in the current moment, I still wonder what the coming winter will bring.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Herb, I’ve been using the Canon PowerShot S110 since my 300 HS crapped out on me, and it seems to grab more detail (like a bad case of Mick Fleetwood Crazy Eyes).

      No bong hits, alas. No booze. I’m boring as all hell. My idea of a real good time these days is a glass of sparkling apple cider, an hour of teevee and bedtime nine-ish.

  10. Herb Clevenger Says:

    Another thing about the umbrella-bomb shelter pix Patrick. You must be pretty limber these days. If I held that position long enough to take that photo I might not be able to get back up! Was on the stand up board last night and kneeling to get off shore. When I went to stand up I wobbled like the last man off the bar stool at closing time. In the mornings I no longer spring out of bed like a colt but rather lumber forth like a slow moving freight train. Yet I’ll betcha you and I could still clear out a room of hipster millineals without breaking a sweat.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      I’ll do anything for my Art, Herb, even listen to my knees pop like Black Cat firecrackers when I assume the position like that.

      Onliest way I could chase a bunch of hipster millennials out of a room is by farting. Then again, maybe deploying a few arcane cultural references from a bygone era might do the trick without the need to resort to chemical/biological weapons.
