    UK’s leading bookmakers face paying out more than Β£10m if Leicester City win the Premier League title.

    At the beginning of the season, Claudio Ranieri’s side were as much as 5,000-1 to finish as champions, while the odds were 1000-1 to be top at Christmas.

    At the start of the season, 47 people placed a bet with Ladbrokes for Leicester to win the title at 5000-1 – of which 23 have cashed out, while 24 are still awaiting their fate.

    “Leicester’s win would be the biggest upset in the history of betting,” Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes told BBC Sport. “It would be the worst result for us financially and our biggest payout by a distance.


    go foxes.

    Listening to these two leaders is so uplifting. It’s feels *good* to listen to these two and to be reminded that they are *in charge* and are trying to be frank in their responses.

        Hi, WC sibling! This type of conference I can listen to without hesitation. This is informative, “presidential” and uplifting; US 2016 campaigning – no thank you! πŸ™‚

      GM/GA vc.

      Annoying that whitehouse.gov/live didn’t have this on their sked earlier as I’ve been outside with my plants. 😦

      Also annoying that PBO is busy with world events on Sunday morning, the best time for me to spend with said plants. (Usually hot and windy in afternoon, which makes tending to them more of a challenge.)

      Also thought PBO would be at trade show tomorrow (i.e., between midnight and 3am west coast time) not this morning. 😦

      Since it’s on whitehouse.gov, hopefully I’ll be able to catch up when its 3am in Germany.

      End of rant.

    Oh, you mean the man who won his elections and isn’t on the ballot in 2016?


    McConnell tries to rally GOP without mentioning Republicans
    Associated Press April 23, 2016

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is urging Republican delegates to focus on a single politician: Barack Obama.

    McConnell focused nearly all of his speech during Saturday’s Kentucky Republican Convention on opposing the outgoing Democratic president. Not mentioned were any of the potential Republican alternatives, who are embroiled in a nasty fight over delegates heading into a possible chaotic national convention this summer.

    “What is the fundamental argument our nominee will make? I think it is pretty much like this: ‘If you are happy with where we are, if you think this is as good as America can do, then Hillary is your candidate. But if you think we can do better, by taking an entirely different path, you should be for me,'” McConnell said, speaking in the voice of the future GOP nominee without saying who that person would be.

      The one thing that stands out is these middle-class whites who live pay check to pay check and don’t have $400 cash for emergency services don’t consider themselves “poor”. In my opinion they are not middle class they are wanna-be-middle-class-poor people. These are the same people who voted for Ronnie Raygun 40yrs ago and are wondering why they and their kids have lost financial ground and continue to vote Republican.

    OMG! Am just watching Beyonce’s Lemonade video. She’s isn’t playing, taking no prisoners. Full thing is available to HBO subscribers, I think until only today or something. Ummm … JayZ are you doing right, dude? Maybe it’s all about art, dude, but I’d pay attention like right now. You hear me? LOL! πŸ™‚
