It’s another busy day.  I’ve changed my schedule to accommodate  grocery delivery from Store to Door, which I expect in about an hour.  This evening, WWW is coming to de-stink the TomCat.  I slept well, but feel much more tired than normal.  I think it’s because of the temperature.  It’d 44° outside, 55° on the open window side of the room, an d 78° on the computer side of the room from the radiator effect of the sun hitting the wall.  ARGH!!

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today’s took me 3:06 (average 4:48).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From  YouTube (MoveOn Channel): Jeff Sessions: No One is Above the Law

Beauregard Barf Bag Alert!!

 

You can be sure that KKK Beauregard will do a complete about face on this issue now that his Fuhrer is the subject. It will be interesting to see how he tries to sidestep this statement. RESIST!!

From Washington Post: Time magazine has named “The Silence Breakers” as its 2017 Person of the Year, recognizing the women (and some men) who came forward with stories of sexual harassment and assault and helped force a nationwide reckoning.

The magazine calls them “the voices that launched a movement.”

The woman who have reported Trump and others are a far better Person Of The Year than Putin’s pussy grabbing pervert could ever be. This is the last good year, because Time is about to start sucking Koch. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Several prominent Nazis said on Tuesday that they feel “neglected and hurt” by what they see as the Republican Party’s decision to court child molesters instead.

After the Republican National Committee agreed to fund the alleged child molester Roy Moore’s campaign for the United States Senate, aggrieved Nazis called the move a blatant attempt to pander to the child-molester vote.

“It seems like just last summer President Trump was saying what ‘fine people’ we were,” Heinz Dorrinson, an embittered Nazi from Mississippi, said. “Now it seems like all he can think about is his precious child molesters.”

Dorrinson warned that, in their frenzy to woo the child-molester vote, Republicans were playing a dangerous game by taking the Nazi vote for granted.

Andy, I think the Nazis are foolish. They have nothing to worry about. Republican child molesters, like Moore, are Nazis too. RESIST!!

  1. Neo-Nazis feel “neglected and hurt” because Rethuglicans are courting child molesters? I yi yi yi yi, as if those knuckle-draggers couldn’t get more ludicrous and risible.

    Bravo Time magazine for making daring whistle-blowers the People of the Year! Let us hope this is an indication that sexism is getting marginalized and stigmatized, as it should be. On the other hand, let us hope that the crusade against sexual harassment doesn’t degenerate into a McCarthy-style witch hunt.

  2. BBA: Well, that’s going to come back and bite him in the A – – !!!

    WP: Excellent choice, imho. Bye, Bye, Time Magazine.

    NYer: Yep, Nazis one and all !!!!

    Cartoon: Absolutely the Word.

    Hi, WWW! Hope that you get some rest. It’s 43 here, and I’m bundled up like I live up North. lol. Enjoy your evening, take care, and Thanks, Tom.

  3. YT/Move-On: This worm will turn in any direction he thinks he needs to, in order to save his skinny ass!
    WP: As posted on the Culture thread at C2 earlier today.   While it is sad to see, now, 2 Dem. senators step down, this citation is very welcome!  Anyone seen a Republican, or their party,  take responsibility?
    NewYorker: TC, I could not agree with you more!
    ‘Toon: There is a problem there: Moore would not see what he has done to children as obscene, but he sure as hell would not want them to be heard!

  4. Let’s start with something positive: Australian parliament has finally voted for a same-sex marriage  bill, scrapping ALL its amendments (added by conservatives mostly to “protect” religion and allow discrimination on religious grounds) and accepting it with only 4 votes against and a few abstainers.

    Passing the bill was met with applause and even tears and when the gallery started with the unofficial anthem, I am Australian, many politicians joined in.  (sorry, I’m not on twitter and don’t know how to embed these videos).

    Its chorus couldn’t be more apt for this occasion:

    We are one
    But we are many
    And from all the lands on earth we come
    We’ll share a dream
    And sing with one voice
    I am, you are, we are Australian

  5. MO: Oh, look, Jeff Sessions in his young and innocent days. But even then he was already replaced by a changeling, a Leprechaun. The extremely short memory span is a dead giveaway for a changeling. When confronted with this video he’ll say he has no recollection of it and his boss had assured him it was a fake tape, made by the alt-left. Of course Drumpf is above the law. It’s the whole reason he became president in the first place.

    WP: LOL Time’s apt choice must have infuriated Drumpf on more levels than we even thought he had sealed

    TNY: Yup, that’s what you get when you try to cater to every fringe group on the right there is. Like little children they get jealous of any new addition to the GOP family who gets too much attention.

    Cartoon: Excellent pun.

  6. Puzzle — 4:48  Return to sender, address unknown!

    MoveOn — “I do no recall saying that.”

    Washington Post — AMEN!!!

    The New Yorker — Once a nazi, always a nazi.  What does not make sense is the evangelicals continuing to support Moore.  Well I guess it does make sense since they worship supply side Jesus, not the real one.

    Cartoon — He gives me the shivers.  Such a vile individual!

    I am heading out to the doctor’s now.

  7. 4:19 Since I’ve been using the USPS’s “Informed Delivery” service, I don’t need to go out to mine quite as often.

    MoveOn – Thanks for featuring the Pixie Man!

    WaPo – A very good decision indeed. And I’m sorry to say that cleaning up will be painful. I’m afraid that the majority of serial harassers and child molesters are actually very lovable apart from that (Trump and Moore being among the exceptions), and our guts are going to say “No! It can’t be true!” But it will be true Sorry. I’m reeling right now over James Levine myself.

    TNY – What really made me LOL was the name “Heinz Dorrinson” in lieu of the usual “Harland Dorrinson.” Priceless!

    Cartoon – Very true!

    Not sure how this got lost, but it gives me an opportunity to add a little good news – Sam Seder rehired by MSNBC.

  8. Thanks all!  Hugs! 19
