    Across the aisle… To put it as bluntly as possible, but also as gently as possible, I’m irritated at the prospect of James Comey urging anyone not to lose their minds in a sensitive political situation. — David Waldman, LLC (@KagroX) July 22, 2018 Haven’t you helped enough? https://t.co/eDXGaDsalu — Morgan Harris (@mharris621) July 22, 2018 Look, man. Become a Democrat and embrace liberal values if you want to dispense advice to Dems. There is no "his Republican Party." There's one Republican Party, it's led by Donald Trump …

Travel Question Open Thread

In Readership Capture by John Cole

Are any of you travel agents or know anything about east coast (North or South Carolina preferably) beach rentals. Tammy and I are going to pool resources and rent a place in late September and are looking for something clean, cheap, and pet friendly. My trip to Topsail last year was the first time I had been on vacation since Point Pleasant, NJ in like 1995 and before that it was Barcelona in 1992 while in the service, so I am totally out of my element. It doesn’t have to …

Sacramento Meet-Up: Proof of Life

In Meetups and social events, Readership Capture by Anne Laurie

From expert photographer and beloved commentor BillinGlendale: As you know we had a Balloon Juice meetup during my recent visit to Sacramento, here are the pics. I’d like the thank the SacTown jackals for their warm welcome, even with the cooling Delta Breeze. I don’t remember(and too lazy to check the comments) who suggested Urban Roots but the food was fantastic as was the company. I will not ID the folk since I will certainly screw it up, but leave it up to y’all. The first pic [at top] is …

Meet-Up Proof Of Life and Cute Toddler-Puppeh Playing

In Meetups and social events, Open Thread by TaMara (HFG)

I think we need a non-political thread to give us a break. The Denver meet-up was a great success. I don’t know about everyone else, but I love meeting everyone. Jackals are the best. I had to head out early, because…work. But when I left, everyone was cheerfully chatting away. If you ever get the chance, meetups are great fun. Proof of life below the fold.

Afternoon Moment of Zen

In Dog Blogging, Readership Capture by John Cole

It’s absolutely beautiful here so I was opening all the windows to get a good breeze going and to air out all the stank, and I saw our girl Lily out in the backyard just living her best life, sniffing, pooping, peeing, rolling around, and I stood and watched her for a bit. Realized you all could use a bit of this dog therapy and grabbed the camera for you: She’s just such a happy, gentle, sweet dog. Once again, I can not thank you all enough for chipping in …

Loved this section of Obama’s speech in Johannesburg today: “It shows a poverty of ambition to just want to take more and more and more, instead of saying, ‘Wow, I’ve got so much. Who can I help?
