I have a busy day today.  I’m writing earlier than normal, because I’m waiting for a grocery delivery from Store to Door.  When it arrives, I’ll put the groceries away, have lunch and finish writing.  Wendy is coming this evening to destink the putrid TomCat.  Even though today’s high is forecast at 57°, 100% humidity makes me sticky.

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today’s took me 2:40 (average 4:23).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From YouTube (GQ Channel): What Mike Pence’s Cynical Anthem Stunt Cost

 

Keith has a point. When it comes to wasting YOUR money on their own luxuries, nobody excels like the $1,232,943,000.00, and still counting, Republican Reich! RESIST!!

From YouTube (RWW Channel): RWW News: Rick Wiles Says ‘You Don’t Have The Right To Worship Lucifer In This Country’

Barf Bag Alert!!

 

As a Christian, I have no wish to worship Lucifer, his teased hair, his orange face, his tiny hands, his pee-soaked body, or his Putin-ravished butt. However, if I was sick enough to want to do that, it is my right, no matter what that Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian liar says. RESIST!!

From Daily Kos: There are primarily two types of poor people in this country:

1. Those who are struggling because they have an entire power structure rigged against them

2. Those who have no money because they are, frankly, morons

We fight for those in the first category. The second category might as well be referred to as Trump supporters, and I simply don’t have any empathy for proudly ignorant, dirt poor, uneducated racists who are currently getting swindled right now by a supposed “billionaire.” 

President Cheeto just tweeted that “The RNC is taking in far more $’s than the Dems, and much of it by my wonderful small donors.”  He was referring to this article in theWashington Post [sic]—which I suppose he forgot that he called FAKE NEWS just a few days ago.

U.S. President Donald Trump is using money donated to his re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee to pay for his lawyers in the probe of alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

If you believe Trump, he is uber-wealthy and doesn’t need anybody’s help to pay his bills. So either he is lying, or gets some kind of kick out of poor dupes donating to help pay his legal fees. Either way, he mocks them and proves our point that they do indeed deserve our scorn. At least when we mock them, we don’t swindle them.

At different times the Fuhrer has denied doing this and bragged about doing it. Republicans, Trump is an expert at sheeple-fleecing, so bend over and say BAA-A-A-A-A-A! RESIST!!

  1. 4:19  Hope there’s room in your freezer. 

    Quiz – How much do you know about African geography?  Can you name 9 of the 10 countries where it is hardest for women to get a job – ANY job?  (Full disclosure – I got 5 out of nine – and one of the ones I missed has changed opera for me forever.)

    A new Randy Rainbow

    Not Randy Rainbow, but also good.

    Keith # 133 – And yet the Republicans still claim to be the party of fiscal responsibility, and GET AWAY WITH IT!  How do they DO that?  Oh, wait, it’s because no one pays any attention to what is spent unless Fox News tells them.  And you’ll never hear a whisper of this on Fox News.  Just a dumb question – when they fly private charters, do they have to go through TSA, as they would on commercial flights?  Petition here.

    RWW – Of course we have the right to worship Lucifer.  Or Chthulhu.  Or the Flying Spaghetti Monster.  OR NOT.  The Satanic Temple, which has been in thenews again this week suing for women’s right to abortions on grounds of religious freedom, doesn’t, however, actually worship Satan.  They admit it.  They are working, very effectively I might add, for real religious freedom, and more power to them.

    DKos – So true.  And they don’t even know they are being swindled, because Fox News never publishes how he is paying his lawyers with their money – when he is paying them at all.

    Cartoon – Charles always seems to have that s***-eatin’ grin.  David generally looks like he is trying to out-grump Grumpy Cat (he can’t; he’s not good enough.)

  2. KO: Cold blooded basturds! That money, OUR money should have been GIVEN to Puerto Rico for the hurricane recovery, or for any other city flattened by the storms. Their callousness is apparent and tangible. Sickening!!

    RWWW: My religious rights and freedoms does not give me the opportunity to use my religion to discriminate against other religions, nor other people’s beliefs.

    DK: dt is a liar, and swindler. He doesn’t care how he gets the money, he’ll mock us all, and continue to deceit for his causes.

    It was chilly here this morning. Anything below 70 (to me) is cool. Hope that you have a good, and relaxing evening, take care, and Thanks, Tom. HI, Wendy!!! 😉

  3. Keith: I do not need to know the breakdown, Trump is running a Kakistocracy, according to conservative political scientist and resident guru at the american Enterprise institute, Norman Ornstein:
    https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/10/10/1705723/-The-Atlantic-Confirms-It-We-Are-Living-In-A-Kakistocracy?detail=emaildkre
    You an also see this in my posing at C2, earlier tonight, in the Politics and Government thread.
    Y/T-RWW: Jut because this ass says so, “It don’t mean a thing….”  These clowns think they can define what is “allowed” just because they live under the delusion that their god is driving their ship, BS!  Oh, what about worshipping The Great Pumpkin?  Carved into its most sinister face, it does not compete with DT!  BTW, “He who makes the definitions, has the power,” so don’t do anything but RESIST!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Randy:  Olé!
    Brick in water:  Sink, baby, sink!   The slime ball makes a parody of Puerto Rico’s name, trying to show some kind of bizarre empathy.

  4. Keith Olbermann #133: The amount of taxpayer’s money waisted doesn’t even include the millions of dollars that go down the drain whenever Drumpf “retreats” to one of his golf resorts for some much needed relaxation from his harrowing job, nor does it take the millions spent on Melania’s stay/protection when she stayed behind in New York. Keith could fill a weekly The Resistance with updates on the amount of taxpayer’s money wasted, and also one on the amount of money Drumpf and family are personally making with his “presidency”. Good thing Keith is putting a spotlight on this from time to time, as – like most things Drumpf is doing – people are getting used to it and after a while forget all about it.

    DK: Stelletje klootzakken (some Dutch swearing with graceful permission of TomCat). How stupid must one be to donate money towards the re-election of a man who is about to be impeached, either on the basis of colluding with an enemy power and obstructing justice, or because his mental state renders him unfit for office? Belachelijke hufters. How moronic must one be to continue donating money when that mentally deranged, but extremely wealthy, man uses it to pay for his lawyers, openly ridiculing and mocking those donation? Sadly the reality probably is that these donations are smart investments in a corrupt government which will make sure that these ‘investors’ get fantastic ‘dividends’ on the little they invest.

    Cartoon: Shudder, too true.

    • Yeah!  he a real moeder stelletje klootzakken!! 14

    • The “small dollar donors” are investing in their own destruction – as they always have.  They do not believe he is going to be impeached.  He was put in the presidency by God to do God’s work, and God will keep him there by whatever miracles are necessary.  (Their idea of what constitutes “God’s Work” pretty well sums them up.)

  5. Thanks all!  Hugs! 23

  6. Puzzle — 3:47  If I may quote Burger King’s Clara: “Where’s the beef!”  My answer: In Puddy Tat’s freezer!

    YouTube — And that national debt that Republicans claimed Obama kept increasing?  Drumpf and his cronies along with Republicans are the fiscal conservatives that keep spending in outrageous ways that increase the national debt.  Drumpf and his cabinet spend money that should be going to reduce poverty, homelessness etc in a nation that claims to be the richest as if it is a virtue — $1,232,943,000 would go a long way in this regard!  The raping and pillaging of the nation will continue until all of the voters have the cajones to oust the Republicans into political obscurity!  Keith is spot on still!

    RWW — As an authentic Christian, not a right wing psuedo Christian, I support the freedom to worship who or what one wishes.  As to what Wiles says:    As to the anti-Christ, Wiles and his ilk are the embodiment of same.

    Daily Kos — As I recall, Romney said one thing and then said differently later thus earning the name Flip Flop.  But Drumpf has him beat in that category, plus he lies like a rug!  Seems that is de rigueur  for Republicans in government, and the higher a Republican aspires, the more flip flopping!  As for using donations for his legal woes, I think that should be a no-no since this debacle is of his own criminal making.  I know a Republican-on-the-street survey was done at one point on this issue and many of his confessed supporters said use of donation money to pay for lawyers was OK with them.  They are being fleeced and either don’t know or don’t care.  I have no sympathy for them.  But those that stupidly supported him thinking he had their back, but now find he lied to them, and who disagree with the donations used this way, I have some sympathy and one question: Who are you voting for next time?  If you say you’re not voting because you were taken in by this smarmy circus barker (Drumpf), I have no sympathy because you are helping the Republicans and Drumpf to empty your wallets, to fleece you all over again.

    Cartoon — Ain’t that the truth!

    Late again!  Yesterday was very busy and I awoke very late this morning so I didn’t get to commenting before you made your run.  Here it is 8 C (46 F) with 87% humidity.  Yesterday, they had hail and sleet just south of the Fraser River which is unusual for this time of year.  I have been feeling the cold which is also unusual.  No stickiness here! . . . but a warm shower does feel good!  Today is a low key day if you consider laundry low key.  After all, it’s not Hallowe’en yet so this Sasquatch is not about to go about nekkid and scare people to death.  Hope you enjoyed your deputrifying with Wendy!
