It’s another busy day with temps in the 80°s and high humidity.  Store to Door delivered groceries, and I just finished putting them away.  In half an hour, I’ll break for lunch.  Boo Hoo!  I intended to have dawg, but that Sasquatch took it.  I have a haircut scheduled at Noon.  Then I finish writing, do some paperwork, and take a nap.  Finally, Wendy is coming to de-stink the TomCat!

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today’s took me 3:15 (average 4:40).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From YouTube (GQ Channel): More Moral Than Trump: The Red Wings and the Torch Maker | The Resistance with Keith Olbermann


The explanation is obvious. Unlike Trump, neither the Red Wings nor Tiki are Nazis. RESIST!!

From YouTube (RWW Channel): RWW News: Michele Bachmann Is Now Skyline’s Pastor To The United Nations

Barf Bag Alert!!



Is Batshit just like a bad penny, as evidenced by my 2012 April Fools graphic, or what?  RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Millions of Americans would gladly work for Robert Mueller for free if that would help speed things up, a new poll finds.

According to the survey, a substantial number of Americans would leave their jobs, their homes, and even their families to join the special counsel’s team if doing so would help bring this nightmare to a swifter conclusion.

A spokesperson for the special counsel confirmed that his office has been receiving thousands of résumés a day from Americans begging to do anything to help Mueller “move things along.”

Dang Andy! Where do I sign up? RESIST!!

  1. 4:47  Relaxing.  Maybe TOO relaxing.

    Keith # 107 – Yeah.  The self-proclaimed “successful businessman” has literally NO CLUE that white sumpremacy – racism – is bad for business.  Tiki Company, and the Red Wings, which after all is a business franchise, with customers to please – they get it bigly.  The corporate CEO who are leaving the B-hole’s “Economic Council” – they get it.  Bigly. But he?  The Papaya Palpitine?  He. has. no. clue.  (P.S. So many CEOs are leaving that both councils or whatever they are called have disbanded.  Trump ciaims it was his idea.  But it wasn’t.)

    Skyline – “Audacious.”  Good word.  All Gall is divided into three parts – nerve, cheek, and guts.  And “audacity” includes – two of them.

    TNY – SOunds like straight news to me!

    Cartoon – You must have been reading quotes from Stormfront.  However, I thnk Heather’s mother nailed it at her memorial service. 

  2. “I think Heather’s mother nailed it at her memorial service.”

    They Go Lower – We Go Heyer

  3. KO: Word. 10x’s over and over.

    Skyline: Oh, ick. “Chaos, confusion, deception, delusion, pain.” Sounds about right for the climate of our Nation now.

    NYT: I’d even work for free! lol, Andy!

    Cartoon: Sure why not? And I can distort the TRUTH while I’m at it.

    Sounds like you have had a very busy day. Glad you got a nap in. Enjoy your evening, take care, and Thanks, Tom.

  4. Trump will make excuses for anyone, anything, that may hint at looking at him kindly, dung beetle included…and he’s found a lot of them who do so!
    RWW News: Aha!  Speaking of dung beetles!!  These people are so delusional, have bought into the culturally supported delusion/fairy tale, that they live in another universe!  UnWTFbelievable!
    New Yorker: Yeah, I’m semi-retired, I could change careers in a minute, send me the application, too!!

  5. Keith Olbermann #104: Kudos to Keith, the Tiki Torch makers and the Red Wings for their quick and firm rebuttal of the alt-right’s actions in Charlottesville. Their actions underline the deplorable state of America’s leadership and make clear that changes need to come from the people, not their current government.

    RWW: Michelle Bachmann, as new pastor of the Skyline Church, thinks she’s allowed to speak at the UN to tell them how deluded they are…3333330811

    TNY: “…Americans begging to do anything to help Mueller “move things along.” Not only Americans, I can tell ya!

    I’d go to the US instead of back to The Netherlands and start investigating Drumpf if that would help.

  6. Puzzle — 4:15  If you’re going to fish for dinner, I hope you brought your pelican to help you!

    YouTube — Keith, as usual, is spot on!

    “Racism is evil.” The words of Drumpf.  Yet they ring hollow, as hollow as the man that uttered them.  He has failed to denounce the alt right, the white supremacists, the neo Nazis in a timely and authentic manner.

    During the election campaign, Drumpf claimed that he would unite the nation.  Since he has blamed Democrats and some Republicans for sowing division when in fact it is he who has divided the nation and continues to divide the nation.

    The Red Wings organisation and the makers of the Tiki Torches have denounced the white supremacists etc.  The pResident’s advisory councils have disbanded themselves in opposition to Drumpf’s actions around the white supremacists etc.  Drumpf would have us believe that he cancelled them, but he did not.  The members of the councils had a conference call amongst themselves and agreed to dissolve.  Drumpf, acting like the jilted lover, claimed it was he who dissolved the councils.  Another lie to add to his list.

    Resist, Persist and Remove!!!

    YouTube — Oh God, I thought we were done with this batshit crazy person.  Guano Girl, as I call her, is the furthest thing from the Holy Spirit.  She should be locked up so she cannot be a harm to herself nor anyone else.

    The New Yorker —  Andy, you’re doing straight reporting again!  I’m with you TC “Where do I sign up?”

    Cartoon — Get thee behind me Satan! 

    Resist, Persist and Remove!!!

    “I intended to have dawg, but that Sasquatch took it.”  I saved you from a major case of indigestion!  After all, there were 2 dawgs, 2 big dawgs.  I’m pro choice and these dawgs chose to live.  Glad you had some Wendy time! . . . really, really glad!!!

  7. Thanks all!  Hugs!
