Professional Left Podcast Episode #781: Three Hundred Fifty-Five Million Dollars

“I don't want any messages saying 'I'm holding my position.' We're not holding a goddamned thing. We're advancing constantly and we're not interested in holding anything except the enemy's balls. We're going to hold him by his balls and we're going to kick him in the ass; twist his balls and kick the living shit out of him all the time. Our plan of operation is to advance and keep on advancing. We're going to go through the enemy like shit through a tinhorn.” -- George Patton

The Movie Highlander.

McCloud was a Scotsman from the highlands and his Foe was a kargon From Russia. Both bound by a force of fate to face off at the end of the movie.
The kargon was the feicest of the immortals. Strong , powerful experienced. McCloud was given training to prepare him for the day he would have to face off with the other immortals and of course the kargon, himself.
For in the end, there can be only one.

The right does not want Trump in jail and feel Trump should run against Biden and let the people decide. Ignoring his committed crimes.
Most on the left feel he should be accounted for any crimes before an election.

Oddly Biden like McCloud is is from the highlands and the kargon from Russia. Trump wants to be Russian.
Will they end up facing of in the end with there being only one? I the movie, McCloud is victorious and is the last one standing. That is a good ending for any movie and they say art reflects life.

Trump wants to negotiate? Like Bruce Willis in The Fifth Element? Yes, we should do that.

Marcy Wheeler is the bomb. Russia isn't attacking us *again*, they never stopped. It's weird, just telling the truth about Russia makes you sound like some conspiracy nut, but god damn it, the truth is the truth, and we can't let them replace it with their bloody lies.
As of this morning, Fergus owes another $110,000 for each day he fails to pony up the $450,000,000, and his lawyers' pathetic mewling for more time so he can finish his next grift was roundly slapped down.
And just wait until the DC and Capitol police officers civil suits come around.
I was a Warren supporter in the primary, but Biden has done things that even surpass what I imagined she could have gotten done, so don't tell me he shouldn't run again.
Tommy Tuberville. I asked my friend Sara who lives in Huntsville how she could have let them replace Doug Jones with this clown. She just reminded me how hard it was to elect Jones even when he was running against Roy the fuck Moore.
Thank you again for the podcast. Briana is up in Miranda working on our place so we can move there, so it's just me and the cat holding down the fort.
Speaking of the cat, he was born a poor black cat in the inner city (Richmond, home of righteous progressive politics and rats from the neighbor's derelict woodpile) and for the past four years now he has been living out here in the trees among the raccoons (who ignore him) the dogs (who he mostly ignores) the occasional bear or mountain lion (neither of which he has met as far as we know) and various species of small furry and feathered animals (who he occasionally murders and leaves just outside of our door) and of course the neighbor's grey cat who he has a grudge against for being here first.
I've been asking him about the upcoming cross-state adventure and whether he's excited about it, but he doesn't seem to give a rat's ass, although since there are many rats on the property in Miranda, he may have extra ones to give soon enough.
