Happy birthday to John Gibbon, the artillery officer who molded the famed Iron Brigade and served at Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Gettysburg (where he helped repel Pickett’s Charge). Even more courageously, he once withstood a historically CRINGEWORTHY joke from Abe Lincoln …
Lincoln was inspecting the Army of the Potomac early in the war (probably making sure McClellan hadn’t let it go stale). When he was introduced to Gibbon, Abe frowned at the name and said: “Is this the man who wrote ‘The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire?’”
Don’t get the joke? Don’t worry! The only people who reference “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” these days are conservative pundits straining for metaphors to describe America’s moral collapse -- without realizing the book blames Rome’s fall on Christianity! #Oops #LOL

This is your daily pension announcement: The stock MLA response edition. Many (not all) of you have heard back from your MLA with a letter that demands rebuttal. Please respond to your MLA. Ask more questions. Use the following points as required. #ABLeg #handsoffmypension
First, in this most recent letter the GOA DOES NOT acknowledge that they make <50% of the contributions to a plan that has been joint since 1939 (teachers make >50% of the contributions). #controlinginterest #communistdictatorship
The GOA does not own the assets of the plan and they make less than half the contributions. Please forcefully make the point with your MLA and Travis that they had no grounds to unilaterally make any sort of change . #nogrounds #ABLeg #lessthanhalf

This is your daily pension announcement: The Travis "speaks" edition. Well, Travis won't talk to the press about anything pension related. But he did send a letter to a teacher that had some crazy stuff in it. #ABLeg #ABEd #handsoffmypension
Remember that both Travis and Kevin have a strategy of keeping their yaps shut and hoping this pension anger dies down. My opinion is they don't understand this well enough to know how bad they have screwed up or what they need to do to fix it. #oops
A loyal reader of this tweet stream is an example to us all. He was persistent with his MLA demanding answers to his questions until fobbed off. Then, he was persistent in demanding answers from Travis. What do you know, he got a response! #Hallelujah

@stuarthare @rik_ferguson Vice commander Col. Steve Orton set an appointment to tell me the news. "Here's your one-line mission statement," he said. "I want you to buy as many microcomputers as you possibly can, for as many offices in USAFE as you can possibly find, and I want you to cut ALL red tape..."
@stuarthare @rik_ferguson Col. Orton continued: "Now, the system will let you cut a little red tape. They'll tolerate a lot. But you're going to cut 100%. DON'T GET CAUGHT. Help units spend money. If they don't have any, find some for them and spend it. I want microcomputers everywhere in USAFE."
@stuarthare @rik_ferguson Col. Orton continued: "The system won't like you cutting all their red tape. They'll make you hurt worse than the Russians. SO DON'T GET CAUGHT. But if you do, and it's *not* your fault¹, come see me and I'll make the pain go away."

For #WorldFoodDay where to start in #Pompeii & the Vesuvian sites? So many foods are represented in frescoes but have also been found preserved, predominantly in the form of carbonised remains, in archaeological excavations. The most famous is the daily staple of a loaf of bread.
One of my favourite food discoveries from #Pompeii is the incredible survival of this ceramic bowl of eggs found in the House of Julius Polybius. His near neighbour, Julia Felix, had a fresco of a plate of eggs (and a tea towel!) adorning the wall of her study. #WorldFoodDay
Possibly the most infamous foodstuff from #Pompeii is garum made by fermenting blood & innards of fish. Umbricius Scaurus was a proud garum producer & had mosaics of his garum amphorae in his house. It’s an ingredient used to bring together flavours of the dish. #WorldFoodDay

So Ghouliani's clients, Fruman and Parnas met with Rick Perry about Naftogaz and then Perry 'suggested' those changes to their supervisory board. Curious 😁…
I have a feeling he'll be regretting this 🤣😂

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Watching the livestream of @LAW_witchhunt, before the meeting starts @ken4london turns to Graham Bash "you're Jewish?" He makes his speech first and then walks out "promised the kids I'd be home by 8..."
Leaving Tina Werkmann (who is she?) to introduce Jackie Walker and Graham Bash to the crowd. It's a bit sad really, the night before her expulsion hearing she wheels out Graham. You can imagine how his speech goes blah blah "I'm Jewish and it's all a smear" blah blah blah
Tina says "On that glorious day in 2015 I don't think anyone expected we'd take the @uklabour Party, take society, straight away..." and "Jeremy Corbyn has always been unacceptable not just to the right wing not just of the party but to the people who run society"

President Trump's longtime lawyer Michael #Cohen hired Lanny Davis, who served as former Pres Clinton's #specialcounsel as he was under investigation, as the latest addition to his revamped legal team - 1st reported by (wait for it...) @maggieNYT #WWG1WGA…
Think about everything we already know about Maggie from Q.

How can I describe what a great friend you are....?
I can't.

1/ "Only limited studies have been done concerning adultery among Christians. But initial findings have been shocking."

~Bill Hybels, "Christians in a Sex-Crazed Culture", 1989, at least 4 years into his sexual assault & harassment of multiple parishioners and employees
2/ " 'The Myth of the Greener Grass' answered many of the questions I had been struggling to answer on the subject of adultery: What causes affairs?"

~Bill Hybels, "Christians in a Sex-Crazed Culture", 1989
3/ "In fact in the Old Testament, under Mosaic Law, anyone caught in adultery received the death penalty."

(1) #PhotoThread for the #ConfirmKavanaugh process starting 10/3/18.
(2) Mitch laughing to himself about how absurd it is that he has to push his way through the crowd of reporters on 9/25/18.
(3) Sen Grassley is 85 years old. (Democrats have senators around that age, too.)

Today he had to hold onto a Capitol Police officer to reduce the risk of a reporter knocking him over. This has to stop. Senators must return to being able to walk around freely at work.

Does AUSA Moira Kim Penza, prosecutor in the fed. #NXIVM #RICO criminal racketeering case, realize that her indictments of #NXIVM leader, Keith Raniere aka "Vanguard," last March, may have affected the outcome of the 2018 Mexican Presidential Election? #ArizonaMafia #Democrats
Moira Kim Penza is 1 of the main prosecutors in the federal #NXIVM #RICO criminal case. A #RICO case is very serious; it is 1 of the most complex types of prosecutions the U.S. Government can initiate. Moira's boss is Richard P. Donoghue, U.S. Atty for the Eastern District of NY.
Penza is a smart lawyer. According to publicly available information, she studied at Cornell Law School, a private Ivy League University located in Ithaca, New York. Cornell was ranked the #13 law school in America, out of 203 law schools, by U.S. News & World Report, in 2018.

(1) Our opponents are trying (and failing) to deploy this February 2016 collection of Hillary TIME covers as some kind of rebuttal to Trump's tweet about the magazine today. Like everything they do, it backfired on them. Here's why.…
(2) They think saying Hillary had dozens of TIME covers somehow makes her look "better" than Trump. It just shows TIME's liberal bias & how it has worsened since 1992. Further, many covers are quite negative about Hillary, as you'd expect. And they show TIME campaigned for her.
(3) The point of Trump's tweet was to remind all that TIME is *still* fatally biased against him & us, untrustworthy, anti-journalism & nothing more than a flimsy, increasingly irrelevant lib mouthpiece. He also took over the news cycle for next 24hrs or so, like 100 times before
