      We’re still doing this?  Absolutely!  Despite all the compelling reasons to just let everyone go home and enjoy and extended offseason, this is not an option.  The games must be played, and therefore we the long-suffering fans will feel compelled to watch.  Even games no reasonable football fan would choose to watch like, for example, today’s Redskins Jets game.   

      Today’s convergence of sadness features the 30th ranked scoring offense (Jets 14.4 ppg) versus the 32nd (Redskins 12.0 ppg).  The first team to 15 wins!  With no playoff aspirations the compelling story lines for this game are largely limited to watching young players (hopefully) develop.  Dwayne Haskins gets his first home start and Derrius Guice is back from injury.   
       
      My, reasonable, goals for today’s game:  
      1- Score a touchdown 
      2- Score more than 17 points.   
      3- Haskins throws for 200 yards or more with no interceptions  
      4- Guice runs the ball at least 10 times and finishes at 3.5 yards per carry and healthy.  
       
      Hoping for a win at this point feels like setting myself up for disappointment, so I’m happy to settle for an entertaining loss.  
       
      Special thanks to @pez for some excellent Guinness beef stew.  If you absolutely have to stand in a frozen parking lot at 9am, the best place to do it is at the Extremeskins Tailgate with Pez and @Huly.  Great fans, great people. 
       
      The Redskins have declared for the following players as inactive: 
      Paul Richardson  
      Colt McCoy 
      Deshazor Everett 
      Chris Thompson  
      Ross Pierschbacher 
      Vernon Davis  
      Tim Settle  
       
      The Jets declared the following players as inactive  
      Nate Hairston  
      Darryl Roberts  
      Paul Worrilow 
      Matthias Farley  
      CJ Mosley  
      Jordan Willis  
      Leo Koloamatangi 
       
      1st Quarter - Redskins 0 - 6 Jets
      If you wanted to sit in the cold and watch a football game with some Jets fans at FedEx, but were worried that there were not enough seats available, I have good news.  There’s plenty of space available, so come on down and prove you’re a real fan by sitting though this in person.
       
      Jets dominated the 1st quarter even though they only scored 6 points.  The reason being that Washington managed only 13 yards of offense and a single first down.  
       
      Question: Is it still a check down pass if the QB never looks at anyone else?
       
      2nd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      The Jets have achieved an insurmountable 13 point lead early in the 2nd quarter.  All hope is lost.

      Is there a more perfect example of the Redskins offense than their first scoring drive in the 2nd quarter?  Interception gives the Redskins the ball on the Jets 16 yard line.  They proceed to march 10 yards backwards before kicking a field goal from the Jets 26.  It's perfect.  Two or three more field goals we can call it a day. 

      The Jets score again and if feels like they are are just piling on at this point.  Three touchdowns in the first half for them, just three points for the redskins.  Our streak of no touchdowns has now extended to 15 quarters. 
       
      3rd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      There is a spider slowly descending from the ceiling in the press box and it's the most interesting thing that's happened during the third quarter of this game. 
       
      I have decided to allow the spider to live, provided it does not touch me.  I'm off to get some more caffeine. 

      4th Quarter - Redskins 17 - 34 Jets
      The first wave of Redskins fans, the few that are here, started streaming towards the exits after that 4th Jets touchdown.  As if the Jets didn't have this game wrapped up in the 2nd quarter. 
       
      Jet have now more than doubled their average points per game and have matched their season high of 34 points (and they missed two field goals in this game). 
       
      TOUCHDOWN REDSKINS!  THE DROUGHT IT OVER!  Guice took a short pass from Haskins  all the way to the house.  2 point conversion is successful on a pass from Haskins to Quinn. 
       
      The Redskins score another touchdown!  This feels like an embarrassment of riches, even if we are still certain to lose this game. 
       
      End of Game.
       
      Let's review those reasonable goals I mentioned earlier:
       
      1- Success.
      2- Close enough, I'm counting it
      3- Haskins did throw for over 200, but unfortunately did have an interception. 
      4- Guice was not given the opportunity to run the ball ten times today.  He did however score on a 45 yard TD pass and finish the game healthy.  I'll take it.
       
      Even though the Redskins lost, it was good to see the offense show some faint signs of life and end the streak of games without a TD.  The team looked competitive for much of the second half, and perhaps they could have made this a fun game if they carried that same energy throughout.  It was good to see Guice and Mclaurin show out today.  I think both of them have a future with this team that I look forward to seeing.

Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

Secret service is trolling, right? Next they'll be asking for saddleless horses since the President is very fond of bareback riding.

What’s with all the young women behind Trump? Any woman that would vote for/back that misogynist, must have zero self-worth.

Think for a moment on all of the things that one is required to repeat, on a daily basis, in order to be a member of Team R.  And then ask yourself:  

 

Does any Republican have any self worth?

I'm really not sure how much more openly corrupt this WH can be. By doing this stuff so brazenly and then turning around and telling Congress that they're not allowed to investigate it and they'll block any attempt to, they're essentially saying "We're absolutely 100% corrupt and doing illegal **** and we're not going to stop".

I read an article in my local paper today that Nadler is has started actual impeachment inquiry hearings and the White House is instructing former WH aides to defy subpoenas and not show up.  I am not sure how an argument can be made that this is ok, especially if these are actual impeachment hearings.  What is the argument to be made that a throughout investigation can be done.  To no one's surprise if this impeachment stuff starts going somewhere, the Supreme Court is likely going to have to get involved as far as the law goes when it comes to the President's authority to just tell people they have "special immunity" to just defy subpoenas.

 

Also, how do people not find it an impeachable offense for Trump to withhold foreign aide from Ukraine as punishment for not trying to help Trump's 2020 campaign by looking into investigating the Biden family?

I believe that having an investigation be part of an official impeachment inquiry carries a pretty hefty amount of weight compared to non-impeachment related stuff. That being said, SCOTUS is now probably about as right wing as it has ever been in its history so it's possible they might just go along with Trump and say "yeah, you can't force them to comply" in a 5-4 vote. 

 

At that point for all intents and purposes we'd be living in a semi-dictatorship. Trump could do anything he wanted and even an impeachment wouldn't allow Congress to do investigations. If SCOTUS went that far out of bounds it would also embolden Trump to not only go even further but to believe that if he lost the election he could say it was a fraud and hence invalid and if it were somewhat close SCOTUS might go along with him. As it is currently the lower courts can stop Trump but since SCOTUS is basically a right wing sock puppet now, all that does is delay things. 

 

As far as impeachable offenses, I think we need to ask what this WH hasn't done that's impeachable, because the list of what they have done is getting longer and longer every day. If Obama had done 1/1000th of the things Trump has he would have been impeached the next day by House Republicans. Maybe even that night.

Sadly PresidentPAB isn't wrong about the homeless problem here in the Bay Area. Many highway overpasses have homeless tents/camps under them. Caltrans/Police have been overwhelmed with the explosion of these tent cities and do not have the proper safety training and/or safety equipment to deal with them. They also spring up quickly and devastate the area they are on.

 

That said...none of the highway overpasses are beautiful as the dotard wants to portray. They really have no intrinsic value other than allowing city/county roads and streets to be uninterrupted by interstate/highway traffic. And the homeless there aren't impeding that. It's just a public eyesore and a potential health hazard down the line.

But, . . . those homeless people are existing within sight of their betters.

Am I wrong for wanting to cuckold Jared and Agent Orange with her and Melania in on it?  I'm pretty sure that's how Trudeau is going to start world war 3 anyway.
