If you have "no place to go," come here!

Does anybody remember what happened on July 14?

The Times, entirely without irony, runs this story on July 14, 2014:

At Dinner Tables, a Restless Obama Finds an Intellectual Escape
President Obama had just disembarked from Air Force One and was still on the tarmac in Rome when he turned to his host, John R. Phillips, the American ambassador to Italy, with an unexpected request: How about a dinner party tomorrow night?

Over the next 24 hours, the startled Mr. Phillips and his wife, the former Obama aide Linda Douglass, scrambled to gather some of Italy’s intellettuali.

The architect Renzo Piano flew in from Genoa. The particle physicist Fabiola Gianotti arrived from Geneva. John Elkann, the chairman of Fiat and an owner of the Italian soccer club Juventus, came, too, as did his sister, Ginevra, a film director. Over a 2006 Brunello, grilled rib-eye and three pasta dishes — cacio e pepe, all’arrabbiata and Bolognese — at Villa Taverna, the 15th-century manor that serves as the ambassador’s residence, the group talked until close to midnight about “the importance of understanding science, the future of the universe, how sports brings people together, and many other things,” Ms. Douglass said.

Sounds like a nice dinner.

I wonder if they had dinners like that in France, in June 1789? I'm guessing yes.

NOTE Has anybody made the lame duck call on Obama? I'm making it. It's early, but I'm making it.

You're to early, I say he still get the trade deals done. Japans abbe has said he'll have his end done by years end. The Eu rolls over and plays dead while screwing over the citizens by signing up but South America brics and other brics say no thanks.

Oh and begins the final assault on Amerikas safety net. What could be better than a black demodog taking down Amerika other than a white women doing it to us later;)

Fun times

Tell them in no uncertain terms that their retirement is imminent if they vote for a single one of these monstrosities and we should also press for criminal liability of any one who votes for it and an end to revolving doorism.

Claiming to have not read it and then taking a job in one of those industries will not protect them.
