 COMMISSARS DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE
 AN ANIMAL FARM THAT WILL DO TO
 ALICE ULTIMATE HARM? GETTING AN

MONDAY MONDAY.......................

 *B-) coolNice day for San Francisco
 but some ugly weather to
 be found around Alice. Up 
 in New Yawk rain at Saratoga
 with muddy track. So I put my
 picks back on the rack. Just
 too tough with so many young
 entries. For entertainment one
 can follow news real/fake today
 as The Little Cossack goes in
 front of committee in a closed
 hearing. REMEMBER! it is for
 entertainment purposes only!
 Just like voting and boating......

 Quiet in neighborhood today.
 Looking for game to play. There
 is no Greg Merton at Plainridge
 and Monti has "real amateur"
 racing today mixed with semi-
 amateur racing.............

SUNDAY, SARATOGA AND......................

 *>:) devilSunny Sunday for San Francisco
 and Saratoga, New Yawk too. Not
 a race card for faint at heart. So I
 did not start and could say I was 
 an early scratch. Did not feel up
 to the match. Now in Washington 
 challenges coming by the batch.

 "NEW TEAM TRUMP!" rolled out
 with Sunday news/media shows.
 Political history consistent with
 age old policy of shooting the 
 messenger. Now "we" have to
 watch out for that roller coaster
 that keeps on getting closer. 
 Entire Trump family is being called
 to hearings somewhere on The Hill.
 HELL OF A LAWYER BILL!$$$$$$$
 Being in public eye a thrill as sour
 as kosher dill pickle,,,,,,,, What do
 you call a Jew that sleeps with a 
 Cossack? Just asking............

 World of sports/entertainment keeps
 on supporting economy in big way.
 Opiate addiction/recovery keeps on
 supporting economy in big way. 
 World of living as a community going
 away with this current generation. 
 Don't use it, don't want to pay. Bet they
 go to church and don't pay to pray.....

WILL THERE BE A REVOLUTION.................................

 *>:) devilBeautiful morning in San Francisco
 with gloomy sky over Washington.
 Prez is pressing in way that is really
 depressing. With "hands on" act that
 is but television dressing. With lives
 he is messing.............

 Will there be someone who dares to
 CALL FOR ANOTHER REVOLUTION
 as problem of health care solution?
 Cost of staying healthy in land of Alice
 is only affordable for those living in a
 palace. From prez only malice. On his
 hands blood but no callus.................

 Saratoga opens today for summer meet.
 Food at track hard to beat! No pigs feet!
 Are those grill or whip marks..............
 Fun place to be but will be watching from
 computer in front of me. Now thinking of
 WHERE DO I WANT TO BE............trip?

NICE MORNING........................

 *:) happyWoke up to very nice day here
 in San Francisco and bay area.
 Morning news singing blues of
 John McCain's brain cancer. 
 Great American hero who is but
 "a guy captured" by the prez. 
 No one mentioned state of his
 health care..............

 Prez's family entangled and in
 way over their Cossack heads.
 West wing will not recover and
 get on with real business at hand.
 They sound like garage band that
 just fell out into the street..............

 Tomorrow is opening day at my
 favorite turf track, Saratoga. I do
 bet speed on turf and always look
 for that soft first half mile that on my
 face comes winning smile...........

JUST ANOTHER WEDNESDAY.........

 *&lt:-P partySunny day for San Francisco. 
 World of Washington Alice 
 and The Palace seems so far
 away. Politics before people.
 Health care by those who do
 not care. Politicians always
 looking for voter share to keep
 themselves from world of despair. 
 Lawyers/politicians/lobbyists are
 out for long run career. "They"
 would even shake down Smokey
 the Bear...............

 Been checking out flights from
 Newark to Anchorage for trip to
 follow trip to New Yawk. Right
 now just talk. Should slide up to
 Seattle. Rest of month will wing it.

TUESDAY EVENING...............................

 *&lt):) cowboyLife goes on this Tuesday 
 evening in San Francisco. 
 Garbage cans being dragged 
 out to street after day of heat.
 Not humidity or sweltering 
 found back east where every
 winter returns The Beast.......

 Prez not showing face to our
 nation. Is he emotionally hurt?
 Overeating filling in over sized
 shirt or is recovering from son's
 flirt with Russians? Didn't know?
 Modern world's communications
 still that slow............

MONDAY MORNING..................................

 *&lt:-P partyLife moves on this sunny morning
 in San Francisco. Nice warm temps.
 Looking out from front window all
 looks or appears to okay. What eye
 does not see is on going decay. 
 Stillness of morning soothes our
 souls but not for homeless up and
 looking for breakfast. Some look for
 shot to get straight enough to go 
 look for more. May find right there
 outside your door............

 Prez is looking at son and wondering
 how could he be so dumb? Gave up
 everyone "in the room...." Need good
 sweeper with broom to clean up that
 west wing room..................by the way
 what ever happened to North Korea?
 Out of news to limit daily blues..........

 Baseball is back after all star break.
 Models of "good for goodness sake?"
 Just another business with some in
 clouds of millions and the rest are but
 worker bees with worker bees salary.....

 Belmont spring meet is over and now
 for Saratoga where long shot front
 runners get away to slow half miles.
 Pick 4's should pick up in value. Too
 much chalk can make me balk and 
 talk to myself................  but it is not 
 lost on me how much convenience 
 there is sitting at desk with lap top,
 betting account and bong at hand.

DON'T KNOW WHERE.............................

 *?@_@? studyingDon't know where
 I went wrong.
 Can't hit pick 4
 that pays strong!
 Oh baby, I got those
 pick 4 blues. 

 Picked eight of nine races.
 Tote board showing no grace.
 Chalk running me down each
 and every race. Long shots are
 there just behind a trace. Look
 long shot in eye gives up race.
 Feel when I win should not get
 paid with slap in the face.
 Oh baby, I got those pick 4 blues.

 Looked all around, checked out
 every clue. Handicapper's picks
 should cause them to be sued. 
 Some so outlandish to be rude.
 Some use ancient methods that
 are really crude. So here I am,
 and oh baby, got those pick 4 blues.

 Getting dressed, putting on shoes.
 Going to Bell Tower for so so food.
 Wine list puts me in the mood. Want
 to act like very nice dude, have to be
 careful not to be rude. Will get up
 tomorrow and be over the pick 4 blues.

GOT THOSE PICK 4 BLUES........................

 *&lt:-P partySpent morning working
 out pick 4's, finding a
 solution with resolution.
 Made bet after gathering news,
 Now I'm singing the pick 4 blues.
 
 Checked possible solutions.
 using handicapping institutions. 
 Turned information into clues,
 now to decide how much to lose. 
 Looking at four races put me through
 "The Handicapper's paces!" Dressed
 and ready, even tied my shoe laces. 
 Looking at computer screen full of
 professional handicapper's faces!
 Was sure I touched all bases, made
 an argument in all cases. Now to use
 my personal graces. Made my bet!
 Wondering if I'll be singing those
 pick 4 blues.

 Bet fifty four dollars, spreading it
 over four races. Losing bet is no
 disgrace! FOUR WINNERS! in a row!
 More than a parlay it should show!
 WINNING TICKET PAID $14.54......
 Tell me, tell me how that makes sense.
 LOST THIRTY DOLLARS WINNING PICK 4!
 Now I'm singing those pick 4 blues..........

FRIDAY MORNING...................

 *>:) devilMixed sky this Friday morning
 in San Francisco. Block is very
 quiet and peaceful. Hard to
 believe this is someone's "war
 out there." Looking, reading
 from far away trusting what is
 in front of you. Do you have a
 "frame of reference" that can
 separate lie from a clue........

 Morning runners are out. Quiet
 as they pick up and put down 
 legs and feet. What is noticed is
 how "San Franciscans stay neat!"
 Hard to do in the heat and unlike
 New Yawk City heat does not come
 back at you from street. So they say.

 Prez in France continuing political/
 diplomatic dance. Picks at issues
 as if holding a lance while hiding fat
 under over sized pants! Talk about
 taking fashion statement chance 
 while he rants........absurd!

 Going to check out pick 4's at Belmont. 
 Looks like tough card with too many to
 pick and choose in one race. Merton is
 at Plainridge in four of five pick 5 races. 
 Bet him and all in final leg. I did! Yes he
 does out drive others.................

JUST HANGING PLAYING PICK 4'S...........

 *:->~~ spookyI'm not sitting down at
 dock of the bay but I'm
 pretty much doing as I
 may. Sitting at computer
 betting and winning early
 pick 4 and decided to go
 back for some more. It's
 only into third leg of late
 guaranteed pick 4 about
 $250,000.00 and is usually 
 more. But you ask for a
 slice of New York chocolate
 cheese cake and get shmores.
 Chalk is following me............

 All Star Game has come and gone.
 Pitcher's duel and not home run 
 festival. Thrill is gone.....
 Lots of spots for jocks in world of
 making crazy amounts of money.
 Walk around dressed to the nines
 with women on arm that's divine.
 For you no standing in line because
 your a jock that can shock and eat at
 breakfast omelette of hemlock.........

 Blustery day for San Francisco. Sun
 is out with dampness and chill. Not a
 day for walking uphill. Going to watch
 third leg of late pick 4 and pick it up 
 from there................

 Prez in France to do diplomatic dance.
 No time to take chance on romance.....

 San Francisco with Scavenger
 Refuse Removal loud and clear.
 My next door neighbor whom I
 call Rose for her expertise in
 growing great roses in backyard 
 for all to enjoy. Have not seen
 these for the longest time.......

 News about first family and how
 close all are to "everything Russian"
 is ongoing report. Not one year in
 office and signs of disintegration are
 not just appearing now but have been
 there for the longest time.........

 Homelessness in San Francisco still
 on the growth side along with nation
 wide opiate addiction. There has been
 "wars on homeless and opiate addiction"
 for the longest time.............

 Those "UFO's" hanging up in sky are
 not a lie but "cans kicked down road
 now getting ready to land in "YOUR"
 LIFETIME!" There "YOU" are standing
 at "YOGI'S FOLK IN THE ROAD!" Do
 you dare to take dare that has been out
 there for the longest time..............

 No pick 4's for today with Belmont dark.
 Nice day for ice cream in Golden Gate Park.
 Get away from everyday neighborhood bark.

MONDAY MORNING....................................

 *?@_@? studyingSunny Monday morning around
 San Francisco with warm temps.
 Gloomy Monday mourning for
 Washington D.C., White House
 and all the usual suspects with
 knuckleheads everywhere. Once
 again Cossacks living, ruling as
 if democracy is dead. The Trump
 family is at it again getting caught
 playing footsies with Russians and
 AGAIN LYING ABOUT IT! Who are
 these people.........

 Congress breaking again and again
 no health care just to show "us" all
 lawyer/politicians just don't care. 
 Need to feed few to Smokey the Bear!
 Law school, private practice, politics
 and retirement as a lobbyist. This is
 current life cycle of lawyers. Some
 remember to be citizen's advocates. 
 
 No thoroughbreds today at Belmont.
 Dark today and tomorrow. Finished
 out week with final pick 4 of $102.54

SUNDAY MORNING...............................

 *&lt:-P partyLooked like San Francisco 
 would be socked in today
 but sun turned out. Fog in
 morning is story during
 long summer. Not a total
 bummer.............

 Talking heads turned prez
 to shreds on three shows.
 Prez moving along without
 being able to sing his song.
 Wondering why things keep
 on going wrong when base
 says he is strong. At G-20
 appeared not to belong. Did
 meet in private with guy no
 one should meet in private.

 Muddy track at Belmont 
 yesterday made me look the
 other way. Some horses did
 pay nicely but hard to reach.
 I'm in for early pick 4 and will
 go back for some more. 

 Reports "keep coming in "
 from that "war out there." 
 Heard after nine months town
 was finally taken. Nothing left
 to build on there.................on
 to "next" objective...........

 needed shopping. Need to get
 down with some mopping but
 that is for another day.......

 Looking at some new furniture

 What a great start to Thursday.

 OH WHAT A DAY!
 Prez Trump over in Europe to play.
 Putin may not listen to what Prez
 has to say and about North Korea
 China says it has no say. Entire
 peninsula may end up as decay. 
 Can anyone hold all these forces
 at bay................

 OH WHAT A DAY!
 Sun is up and Greg Merton is in 
 every race today! There is a pick 5
 for me to play. For $.50 that's a lot
 of action, not just horse hay..........

 Congress has no health care plan.
 Looks like another GOP flim flam!
 Do any POLITICIANS put NATION
 before re-election or is it just some
 more duty dereliction? Does office
 of INSPECTOR GENERAL DO ANY
 INSPECTIONS? Politicians have now
 become used to rejection, someone 
 has to win and THE MONEY keeps

 is over and time to move on. 
 Prez has moved on to Poland
 and Putin. Nation woke to one
 more day of work, homelessness
 and looking for better deal. Some
 are looking for family's next meal.
 Some billionaires out there looking
 for another deal. Going to work on
 crowded subways with knuckleheads
 looking for cheap feel. Some get up 
 looking for next shot to get straight
 and what to steal. Life moves on........

 Entertainment and vacation on top of
 most working people's minds. Some
 out demonstrating carrying signs
 "saying mostly hurrah for our side!"
 Some out working to change weather
 and some to get others on their side. 
 So many in social media confide. Then
 there are others born to slide or from
 pop get free ride..............

 No pick 4's today and went one for two
 on pick 4's picking up a few. As on all

INDEPENDENCE...........................

*~^o^~ cheer Land of Alice in celebration all

 dependent on being independent.
 Just pay own way and won't need
 an amendment. Freedom is more
 than taken for a right as in many
 places ON DEMAND! On that just
 where do you stand? Meanwhile,
 war out there goes on............

 Orwell said it so well. Hemingway
 in For Whom The Bells Toll. "WE"
 all have to pay that toll! It's funny
 that tired old white men elected to
 office past laws letting everyone
 ride for standing up when needed. 
 Enlistment thin to allow felons to

 *&lt:-P partyMONDAY MORNING.
 With pea soup fog.
 Looks to be a day for
 sitting on a log. Here
 I am writing my blog.
 Racing today at Monti
 and Belmont. Devaux
 is now in all races of
 pick 5. That's jive. So
 look at Merton from 
 rail in those races. In
 race with post position
 eight go all. That's 4th.
 Nine horse race..........

 Rutherford or Tapestry?
 Leftover shrimp egg foo
 and veggie fried rice. I
 will open Rutherford. Nice
 to have that choice.......

 Prez going to see Putin for
 one on one caged wrestling

SOMETHING FOR TOMORROW.........................

 *8-| rolling eyesMcChangky is not a guy
 who believes in tomorrow.
 There is now and what has
 been called the past. Like on
 Yom Kippur our Jewish family
 would do "the fast while looking
 back, remembering "the past..."  

 Now lets look into matter of what
 I believe is a great bet tomorrow
 at Monti, the pick 5. The bet uses
 "best trainer/driver combo!" That
 is Basilone/Deveux. Combo does
 not have entry in first leg being
 third race. BET ALL on leg one.
 Next four races has combo entry
 for a $4.00 total bet. I call this bet
 "winners for sinners!" 

 Beautiful morning in San Francisco
 now turning overcast after a no fog
 start. Still may be good day to walk
 and check out local art. Artists are
 important part of community........

On to "Talking Horses" at Belmont
 that has no resemblance to those
 "Talking Heads" of Sunday morning
 "let me talk at you talk shows!"

GOING DOWN THE ROAD......................................

 many politicians on

 "the people" blind.
 Three want no health
 insurance for many
 and tell us their kind,
 Others look at politics 
 as shooting ducks from
 safety of a blind. Look out
 on best golf course are all
 politicians hiding from blind.
 "WE" made it easy.
 Made it too damn easy.
 Jam up "the people" with
 terror and economic threat
 until to help others is some
 thing to regret.........

 HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!
 Alice was not founded on a lie!
 Political thinking in short supply!
 Kicked our allies in the pants and
