Some of my best friends

    are liberals....Gerard Alexander in yesterday's Times.

    Does cause one to wonder. About them.

    To improve Junior's chance of acceptance at the University of Virginia? Or perhaps to join its political science department which appears to need help? 

    Moving on.

    I used to hate David Frum.

    I took over five or seven hours listening to him lately; as he admonishes the idiots who voted for Trump.

    Every historical analysis involves context.

    I never knew David Frum.

    I never met with Mr. Frum.

    In just a few hours  we shall be entertained, once again with the White House Correspondence Dinner.

    Once every year, the PRESS (as it is wont to be called) coagulates at some strange meeting place and makes fun of the POTUS.

    This is kind of like a combination of All Hallow's Eve and April Fool's Day.

    However, and it is a big however, the current POTUS is going to skip the festivities.

    I think that his absence has something to do with this event as it occurred in 2011.

    Trump Taint strikes: VA administrator designate death watch

    Trump is like the Bernoulli effect at the bottom of a toilet--a whirlpool that sucks in all who venture close.

    Poor Ronny Jackson!  Served multiple presidents with no exposure of his flaws, widely respected and liked.

    Obama liked him.

    All he had to do was slight science for sycophancy in his White House Physician's report on Trump's health, and next thing you know, he's under the predictable nominee scrutiny lens.

    Hi jinks ensue...

    Feed Me Sweet Dumbdrops

    But do not steer me to black holes expecting me to see the sucked-up truth

    Copied and edited  from somewhere forgotten: So many people hate and distrust alternate news sites because they give airtime to journalists, experts, and perspectives that are filtered out on their behalf by capital’s preferred propaganda networks, which keeps them comfortable in their dangerous ignorance. 

    I stole this too:

    Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget

    This Hannity thingy just got to me!

    This Cohen guy just got caught with his hands on ....his balls or his client's balls?

    And, of course Hannity suddenly cares about lawyer/client crapola.

    Erick Erickson by Gage Skidmore.jpg

    I do not like Erick Erickson

    TYT decided to discuss this interview by Erick with some anonymous Repub Congressman.

    I do not like green eggs and ham.

    I do not like Erick.

    I most certainly do not like green ham (like Arpaio)

    Ryan's running in 20

    Since Ryan's announced reason for retiring  from  the Speakership is risible , clearly the  real reason is Ryan's belief that  doing so gives him a shot at a better job.

    One guess what that isl

    But first the pretend explanation.

    That he has teen age kids. Many people do.A miniscule % of whom  conclude the onslaught of off- spring adolescence is a rational  pretext for retiring from a good job just before those higher tuition bills start rolling in. No more needs to be said.Let's move on.

    Gini Thomas & GOP Trivializing of the Holocaust

    Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, shared on her Facebook page a series of posts critical of the survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting, who have become vocal advocates for gun control. Thomas shared a post Monday that included a pile of shoes from people killed during the Holocaust. The post was directed at students who walked out their classrooms last month to protest gun violence.

    Fall River

    As my sainted Aunt Nellie used to say, if you´re looking for Compassion, try the Dictionary. Under C.

    Joe and Bonnie get the feeling that things ain´t what they used to be. Because they aren´t...And can´t be. Because when Reagan cut the maximum incremental rate from 70 to 30%, things stopped being what they used to be.

    You can´t get 20 lbs into a 10 lbs bag. If the overall growth of national wealth is 3% and that of the upper 50% is 10%......a funny thing happens to Joe and Bonnie´s share. I know because I just tried it using match sticks.

    EPA's Pruitt to Get New Airborne Division For Protection

    US Army Forces Command has been ordered by President Trump to form a new Airborne Division of 5,000 to protect his EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.

    Mr. Pruitt had complained that his 19 full time body guards and 19 armored vehicles dedicated solely to protect him in his dangerous job were inadequate and insufficient for the threat vectors in the Oklahoma-Washington DC environment. He has demanded that in addition to more personnel, he required paratroops with heavy weapons drop capability to safely navigate the Washington DC area where he resides. A C-5 with airdrop capability will be in the air 24/7 over DC when Administrator Pruitt is in the area. Whether munitions will include non-strategic nuclear weapons, and what types of warheads,has not been answered and is considered classified information.

    Following are some articles that I have found interesting. Maybe some others will too. 

    Why is the media—including the liberal media—supporting these teachers’ strikes? By Corey Robin

    All the President’s Women   By Andrew Levine. 

    “Roseanne” and the Divided States

    I was not among the 18M who tuned in to the reboot of the “Roseanne” television show. The lead characters on the series are Trump supporters. Roseanne Barr is a Trump supporter in real life. For me, there is nothing to see. Barr received a congratulatory call from Donald Trump, further sealing the idea that this is not my type of show. Black Twitter had a mostly negative response to the show, but some loved the nostalgia and attempt to show both sides of the argument. At some point we will get a racial breakdown of the audience. Roseanne’s sister is the white Liberal on the show, and if the article is accurate, seems to be a caricature. In a NYT op-ed, Roxane Gay points out that “Roseanne” attempts to normalize Trump. Trump is a bigot, racist, and homophobe. The show tries to sugarcoat the obvious fact by have a black granddaughter (with few lines), and a gender option dressing grandson. The Liberal sister does not challenge Roseanne about Trump’s racism or LGBT comments. In fact, Roseanne forgives her sister for not voting for Trump.

    Citizens, Can We Game the Census too?

    If Republicans can game the census with citizenship questions, which may dissuade an entire family of citizens from participating in it if there is one non-citizen in the home.......can legal citizens counter-game it?

    Say you are a Democrat in a district and state that goes heavy Republican, should you decline to participate in the census?

    Stormy Daniels 2015.jpg

    Okay, so CBS 60 Minutes will present the storm of the year review.

    Trump's old pay for sex partner shall appear.

    Just waiting for the end of the NCAA Basketball thingy to end; it is now in overtime.

    No. 1 Kansas v. No. 2 Duke.

    I do not care even if I should.

    Speaking of overtime.

    This dalliance, as you might recall occurred just shortly following the birth of Donald's last kid (we think?) whom we never get to see.

    Stormy Weather — Live Blog

    I was hoping DDay would do this, but I’ll step up to the plate.  I will pretend to care about the substantive issues:

    1.  Will she live up to expectations (I’m saying meh)

    2.  Will the dvd be shown?  Probably not. 

    3. Will DJT end up suing her for millions?

    4. Will Melania divorce him after this?  No.  (I think he is holding Barron hostage)

    5.  Will it matter to his base?  Ha!

    They want to help each other

    Brought tears to my eyes. Berlin, today:

    As I was saying

    and saying. And sa....

    We are failing #Metoo.

    It 's not failing. It 's put the turkey on the table.

    The assorted boards from H.Weinstein' s to the Met ,haven' t failed. They tried to deal with a challenge they   shouldn´t have been presented. Didn´ t succeed of course. Did so in a way that sets a dangerous precedent . But they tried.

    "Deep State"

    Just a thread to try to figure out what's going on with the newest most popular conspiracies, to post items over time. Because I recently saw these things that blew my mind:
