Friday Flotsam and Jetsam

Have a new miscellaneous thoughts and observations post up on Substack.

Given the overwhelming reception and applause for Bill Belichick at Foxboro Stadium the other night you'd have to think Donald Trump would be wise to select him as his running mate. Belichick has great name recognition - especially in the NFL cities across the country. Of course this would never happen. Perhaps make him the Press Secretary for a spell? That would be fun.

Yesterday was a big day in the NBA. Boston won Game 3 of the Finals to go up 3-0 over Dallas while 95-year old Celtics legend Bob Cousy said he just wants to live long enough to see championship banner 18 raised at the Garden. Meanwhile NBA icon Jerry West passes away aged 86. Memento mori. Please Subscribe, hit the Like button, or share the Link. Thanks!

Substack Linky Links

Have a new Linky Links post up on Substack.

For some reason some links no longer work on Blogger while other do (strangely enough like the above one). Could be a problem with my laptop, technical ignorance on my part or Blogger may have made changes I'm not aware of. Open to suggestions. Decided to take the easy way out since these links all still work on Substack.

Not trying to do this for more Subscribers or clicks but honestly - why not Subscribe at this point? Thanks!

Substack Flotsam and Jetsam

Have a new Linky Links post  up on Substack of stuff I found interesting or amusing and thought I'd share. Not even the link to this seems to work but if you're a Subscriber or follow me on X you would have been notified.

This is new. There's been a number of links that for some reason don't translate to posting on Blogger but do on Substack so I simply mover them there instead. Perhaps its an issue with my laptop or just technical ignorance on my part. Not a ploy to try for more Subscribers but why not?

Stuff I found interesting or amusing and thought I'd share.

- Jonathan Turley on the Democrats wanting to destroy the Constitution to save democracy (to get re-elected).

My month without a Smartphone. Think everyone should try this experiment (and get into the habit of having a book with them wherever they go).

- Joe Biden and the family businesses.

California is not a democracy. "It's a one Party state. They hold elections but the Party always wins."

Yesterday the Belmont Triple Crown Race was run at Saratoga Park as Belmont Park is undergoing renovations. The race track and town looked great. I wish I was there!

Stuff I found interesting or amusing and thought I'd share.

- Never thought of the possibility of a single team Sunday Ticket before.

- Barack Obama and his AG Eric Holder were also both black but their privilege and entitlement came from being prominent Democrats not their race. Same with the Bidens. People have noticed.

- The Hunter Biden laptop is authenticated as real and that the FBI knew all along. We knew from the start - just like we knew from the stat the Covid virus came from a lab leak in Wuhan, and that Biden stole the 2020 election.

- Great Bill Belichick story.
