CALPERS crap is produced by mindless short-hairs newbies, whiny little shitbags who cannot so much as hope to participate on any higher level. Each of their posts here is further testimony to an extreme incapacity in areas that most educated people are simply able to take for granted -- that a gerund takes a possessive subject noun or pronoun, for instance. That's middle school stuff and these morons here just haven't gotten anywhere near it.

Has shit-for-brains divulged who promoted Principal COVID Cluster? How he was promoted? What he was promoted from or to? It doesn't seem he has a good sense of "business dynamics" if he can't explain any of those things! LOL!

Well. the brutish bellowing of the wounded Whiffies continues to echo over every hill and dale and nook and cranny of FFXU as these delusional dolts continue to parade about in all the finery of their fabled foolishness. What an utterly dull and disjointed lot these failed and uneducated losers make.

Meanwhile, the Sweet Spot seems to be in the path of another approaching winter storm according to NWS, They were spot on with their warnings of winds, rains, freezing temps, and small craft advisories around Too Far North Florida just 13 months ago, but perhaps they'll fall short of such accuracy in the here and now. We'll just have to wait and see. Meanwhile, it was a chilly 19 degrees out this way when I got up. Mostly sunny skies, really low humidity, and winds from the north at 10 mph. We'll be stuck in the 20s all day today before diving back into the teens overnight. Button up your overcoat.

Real President Joe has meanwhile made official the allocation of $27.5B to repair and replace the nation's ailing bridges. Not the sort of glitz and glam that tabloid types favor, just the sort of basic stuff necessary to keep local economies healthy and moving forward, if that sort of thing matters to anyone any more.

In other news, it is also now official that the Nats have signed LH/OF Christhian Vaquero for $4.9 million. Like all of his peers, he's a long way from the big leagues yet, but it's hard to argue too much over a kid whose nickname is The Phenomenon. It'll take years of course, but we'll see how he fares on his trek toward the top.

Not faring at all well of course at moving up from the depths is the embattled burg of Falls Church City. Barely a poor man's Ballston these days, the place does have a now long ago past, but very little in terms of a present or any discernible sort of future. It's just not at all the place to be these days, yet some poor and unfortunate folk indeed still are.

Yes, and it only took four letters. Apparently all of them went right over your tiny little head. By the way, you have the wrong one of The Principals on mind. The correct one is expected to stop by later on another Meals on Wheels sort of mission, delivering food from one of our top area restaurants. Cool!

LOL! There was no discussion of who promoted the Principal. When you make up these nonsense stories, it must be difficult to populate the details of the who, what, where, when, why and how. Sticking to the truth is much easier, but you just can't seem to do that.

Ask Gerund Boy. El Borracho Muchacho del Gerundio says he knows everything, so he oughta know.

That's if all those FFXU trolls living in his head rent free don't get him all riled up. Then it's likely you'll get some potty mouth tirade worthy of a 5th grader.

COOP is a plan, not a person. Dumbfuck. Your weasel-word bullshit never holds up, dipshit. Even if a plan called for greater responsibility and pay for someone, that would mean that person was not the "top dog" or "highest authority" you made that imbecile out to be.

COOP is a plan (the term is normally used for gov't operations), not a person. Dumbfuck. Your weasel-word bullshit never holds up, dipshit. Even if a plan called for greater responsibility and pay for someone, that would mean that person was not the "top dog" or "highest authority" you made that imbecile out to be.

Of course, but in the business world those are commonly called "Business Continuity Plans" by most people. COOP is primarily gov't jargon. Whatever you want to call it, it doesn't explain who promoted the principal, rather how he received the promotion. Is it really a promotion if the principal fills in for someone who went down? And, it certainly doesn't explain to what level the "top dog" or "highest authority" can be promoted to. All topics you seem unable to address.

When your story is full of holes, it must be difficult to fill them all in.

Dude, you've been thoroughly scorched. You're too feeble to respond to the facts that were presented to you. Facts, mind you, that you can't refute and expose you as a complete fraud. Instead, you've been reduced to a little coward. Your only recourse is to offer wimpy attempts at insult. You're childish tirades only further expose you as a butthurt little bitch. Show us some more, fraud.

LOL! You fumbled big time with your principal promotion story. The "top dog" is called the "top dog" for a reason. He's already at the top and there is nowhere to be promoted to. So, you lied about him being the "top dog" or you lied about the promotion. It all shows you have no understanding of how any of this works.

Apples and oranges, asswipe. The word principal has a different meaning in the school system than in the restaurant industry. You really are clueless.

Who gave you any license here, you lying jackass? The word everywhere means what it started out meaning when I first brought the existence of The Principals to your attention as symbols of a connection to the industry that we have and you of course do not. There’s no running away from that for you. Nice meal that one of The Principals brought us this evening by the way. I don’t think you got any. Loser.

A restaurant principal is, as you once claimed, the "top dog" of the place. There is no room for promotion. It really is that simple. You either overstated his importance prior to December of 2021, or there was no "promotion" that took place. If there was, you could easily explain the circumstances of the alleged promotion instead of weasel-wording your way around it with false analogies and your COOP bullshit. Your refusal to explain the circumstances is just more proof you know you got telling another lie.

No meals on wheels for us. One last trip to Cafe Mozart to grab a bite to eat and say goodbye. Strange that one with connections to the industry didn't seem fit to mention it. Then again, Principal COVID Cluster and his partner only appeared on the scene when you were getting your ass kicked. Go figure.

The rahmschnitzel was very good at Cafe Mozart, but it’s played second fiddle to Care Berlin for years. The signage for CM was of course ripped down months ago. Otherwise, you are only embarrassing yourself (further) in trying to butt into and talk about matters you actually know nothing at all about. Just part of what makes you an asshole. Something you’ll just have to live with. Not much of a life really, but so it goes.

Simply pointing out where dinner was acquired this evening after you mentioned I wouldn't be getting any of your meals on wheels. Your latest attempt to go off on a tangent to avoid talking about your "principal" fuck-up doesn't make it go away. Again, if there was this "promotion" as you claim, you could easily explain the circumstances of the alleged promotion instead of weasel-wording your way around it with false analogies and your COOP bullshit. Your refusal to explain the circumstances is just more proof you know you got telling another lie.

No brain in his skull either. It’s what makes it so easy to continually kick his pathetic ass. Most of the time it’s his own words and lack of knowledge that cause him to stupidly stumble around.

Well, the Whiffies are again as folded as a bit of oragami as their excuses for not understanding COOP only paint them as being further and further out of any sort of loop at all. Same as it ever was. Meanwhile, each of The Principals sits now at the top of a new world, one of expanded responsibilty and remuneration as the result of their recent COOP-related promotions. Good for them, I'd say. Still sucks as badly as ever to be a Whiffie though.

Well, no problem in getting over into the village this morning to stock up on the basics ahead of what could be some disruptive short-term weather. I was expecting much worse, but the shelves were in fact full of just the sorts of things I was looking for. The Peapod truck is slated to be by later today as well, so we should be well stocked no matter what the weather decides to do. The Cat Lady is off now for 36 hours, in part to help create space for other clients whose flight back from The Big Easy has now been cancelled. The wife is making great progress, but she's not yet up to the rigors of cat-feeding chores, so I'll handle the next three feedings on my own.

Real President Joe is meanwhile going to use the MLK holiday to push somm more on the need to protect voting rights from abuse through eampant right-wing mischief. Local majorities cannot curtail your eight to speak, print, or worship as you see fit, Neither are they to single you out for extra hurdles in tryino to reach the ballot box. Being just a complete disgrace, the GOP simply does not agree with any of that. Vile creatures indeed.

In other news, fringe media types are now doing the ga-ga bandwagon thing over the Nats' signing of OF Christian Vaquero (17). He's a top prospect alright, but let's remember that his five-tool scouting line is 55-60-65-55-55. Those are great numbers for a kid his age, but they aren't a free ticket to Cooperstown. Let's just get him on a field and see how his skills develops.

The scouting line for Falls Chyrch City these days ia meanwhile 20-20-20-20-20. Like a Glasgow Coma Score of 3, those are basically the numbers for a dead person, appropriate perhaps since the MLK Day march from Tinner Hill (which is not in FCC anyway) has now been scratched.

. unless the local majority is libs. In that case, libs think they can curtail your right to print or say anything that don't agree with them. They want to stop you from worshipping anything unless it's dirt or you're a Moo-Slime.

Of course lib pet groups still have "rights" & Special Rights, too. But nobody else does. Libs use voter intimidating to suppress votes. Like in Philly.
.

You're nothing but a phoney. Now 2 people have shown us you're a racist. It's why nobody believes you. You're a fraud. I don't deny I'm a racist & I don't deny me having good reasons for it, either. Unlike you who go around criticizing racists to cover up you being 1.

You're a loser & a fake.

LOL! Now, eight days after the initial report of one promotion, they both got promotions. Look how difficult it is for him to keep his lies straight. Oh what a tangled web!

Of course, no mention of what they were promoted from or to.
