the phrase that begins a monologue from William Shakespeare's pastoral comedy As You Like It, spoken by the melancholy Jaques in Act II Scene VII Line 138.
The speech compares the world to a stage and life to a play and catalogues the seven stages of a man's life, sometimes referred to as the seven ages of man: infant, schoolboy, lover, soldier, justice, Pantalone, and old age, facing imminent death. It is one of Shakespeare's most frequently quoted passages.

Thanks Cranky! That's some good interesting logic to think about. Thanks for lifting my spirits; at least regarding Wray.
I've been thinking the ongoing deep investigations (D5 redactions) are so air-tight not even Congress knows the details and msm just continues with their fake news narrative. The Dems including some R's are in a frantic tail spin because they really don't know what/who is being investigated and what has already been uncovered. They can only continue with the deluge of fake news and bs propaganda. They are terrified on what may/will be exposed.
Meanwhile, Trump continues his trolling & rhetoric as a distraction. I still flip/flop on Mueller but imo he was playing both sides which makes it difficult on where his loyalty lies since we have no idea what goes on at those highest levels. I think Gen Flynn has all the intel that will take them all down.
Trump & Team are playing the Long game.

Space to ponder... a POTUS tweet decode:
There's a few thing of interest here - some may disagree - but let's start with the spacing!
1) There are 3 spaces, instead of 1, between "all time" and "high"!
We know by now that these typos don't happen by mistake, so what does it mean? My first conclusion was that, logically, the extra space only makes a difference to the length of the post - which is 240... this doesn't seem to have any relevance to me, unless it means 240th day of the year = August 28th?
In a New York Times article entitled “Justice Department Seeks to Question CIA in its Own Russia Investigation,” the IC makes clear its fear of the results of Barr’s investigation of their spy operation on candidate Trump in 2016 that continued through his early presidency. The article, obviously written at the behest of its intelligence community sources — “current and former American officials” —
Start with the sourcing: “current and former American officials.” That includes all of the people who were in the Obama White House, Comey’s FBI, Brennan’s CIA, and everyone else who’s ever held a government job in, for example, the Obama White House.
The third paragraph says, in part: While the Justice Department review is not a criminal inquiry, it has provoked anxiety in the ranks of the C.I.A., according to former officials. Senior agency officials have questioned why the C.I.A.’s analytical work should be subjected to a federal prosecutor’s scrutiny. Two points are made there and both are clearly wrong.
But the CIA isn’t going to cooperate. As the Times article says, Haspel has told her officials to cooperate but — and here’s the big catch — still work to protect “… critical pieces of intelligence whose disclosure could jeopardize sources, reveal collection methods or disclose information provided by allies, according to current and former American officials…”
Either the CIA is going to cooperate — as the president ordered — or it isn’t.
ENTEBBE, Uganda—The government of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro is selling off his country’s gold reserves. Some of it has passed through a secretive operation in East Africa, a gambit that evades U.S. sanctions.
On March 2, the red-tailed body of a Boeing 777 owned by a Russian charter company, Nordwind Airlines, touched down at Entebbe at 6:35 a.m. after taking off more than 13 hours earlier from Caracas, plane-tracking website Flightradar24 shows.
Ugandan police seized the other 3.6 tons, ingots stamped with labels identifying them as Venezuelan central-bank property, says the senior officer who saw them. Some labels appeared scratched, as if someone had tried to disguise their origin, the officer says. Paperwork with the bars showed they were from the 1940s.
Like Dorothy and the ruby slippers...we've had the power all along
