When stone washed jeans hit the scene, I was a bit surprised but not completely blown away.  But these new jeans being sold at Nordstrom’s blew me away.  I walked away thinking if this outlet can sell these jeans anyone can sell anything at any price. 

Mud stained jeans being sold for $425. Are standard jeans covered with fake mud baked on.  While no report on the substance has been released, it looks like mud from the backyard. 

The jeans are produced by PRSP and sold on the Nordstrom’s website with this description. 

Heavily distressed medium-blue denim jeans in a comfortable straight-leg fit embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.

Alabama Governor ousted by Scorned wife of 50 Years

Dianne's Revenge

Scribe:  Samuel Otis

Email:  samuel@thethinkering.com

 

The former Governor of Alabama learned an age old adage is in fact based in truth.  Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.  A quote offered by William Congreve should have served as a caveat, but in this case it didn’t. 

Robert Bentley resigned on Monday after an ethics report found that he used state resources to hide an affair with one of his advisers, Rebekah Caldwell Mason.  His problem began when his wife Dianne was given a state issued iPad by her husband he didn’t know texts from his iPhone were synced with the iPad.  That is until she told him—but that didn’t deter the determined Governor, he then began using a throw away phone so that his missives could not be traced.

Federal spending has been a source of contention for Americans for decades.   Donald Trump himself complained about the previous administrations travel spending.  A recent report suggests in Trumps first 80 days in the White House his travel to just one location has cost the American tax payers $20 million.  This puts Trump on pace to equal former President Barack Obama’s entire two terms before we enter the 2018 calendar year. 

The businessman turned head of state has spent six weekends—21 complete days—at the club he owns in Palm Beach, Mar-a-Lago, according to reports the estimated cost for those trips are about $21.6 million.

Dianne Feinstein voiced her concern about the Trump nominee Neil Gorsuch, she said the amount of monies specifically “dark money,” spent was a concern and that it was not a normal nomination.  

The vote is divided along party lines with democrats choosing to filibuster the vote and republican’s making an unprecedented move to eliminate the “supermajority” rule.   Sen. Al Franken complained, “I’m disappointed that judge Gorsuch was not forthcoming with his answers.” 

Republican law makers said of the democrats if they filibuster this nomination they will never support any presidential nominations.
