I’m tired.  Portland is still under an Air Stagnation Warning, and it’s not severe, but it is irritating my COPD.  Tomorrow is a holy day in the Church of the Ellipsoid Orb.  It’s the Jets turn to humiliate my Broncos.  The game is not televised here, of course.

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today’s took me 4:17 (average 6:07).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From YouTube (RWW Channel): RWW News: Dave Daubenmire Wonders If Vaccines Are Making People Gay

Barf Bag Alert!!


What’s injected into Republican pseudo-Christian hypocrites to make them gay is semen. RESIST!!

From Washington Post: \This week, Quinnipiac University released a new poll that included a question about Trump’s attitudes toward people of color. Most respondents — 57 percent — said that they did not believe that Trump respects people of color as much as he does white people. Among whites, 50 percent held that view. Among black Americans, the number was 86 percent.

50% of white Americans and 14% of black Americans are wrong! RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Donald J.Trump slurred his speech during his announcement about Jerusalem on Wednesday because of “low-battery issues” with Vladimir Putin’s remote, the White House said on Friday.

Speaking to the White House press corps, the press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said that Trump’s slurred speech was “a case of what happens when President Putin doesn’t change the batteries in his remote frequently enough.”

“President Trump makes public appearances several times a day,” Sanders said. “In the course of those appearances, President Putin’s remote can drain its battery very quickly.”

Andy, I think you figured it out! RESIST!!

  1. RWW: Man needs to go back under the woodpile he came from. ugh!!

    WP: Yes, I agree, we need to RESIST !!!

    NYer: LOL, That’ll work, I’m sure, Andy!! I can’t get over the picture of toothless dt out of my head. That was a highlight of my day yesterday seeing those pictures. Too funny!! 😉

    Cartoon: Not only will they get to steal the presents, they’ll suck the life out of us as well.

    My guys play the 49’ers. We’ll see how it goes. Enjoy your evening, take care, and Thanks, Tom.

  2. Is the bugnut in the RWW video for real, or is that a lampoon? Some right-wingers are so kooky, it’s hard to tell the difference.

    How could 14% of black Americans – heck, even 1% of them – not see how racist Trump is?

    The cartoon is all too true.

  3. 6:52  I’m up too early and my fingers are too cold.

    7:04 pm MST Safely homeafter a tiring but rewarding day.

    RWW NEWS – “Christians are choosing to be ignorant” – They certainly are, and he is Exhibit A.  And, incidentally, I could not care whether they are gay  I want to know what is injected into them to make them this crazy!

    WaPo – 50% of whites and 14% of people of color must have been injected with wharever-it-is.  An antidote!  My horse for an antidote!

    TNY – The satire is ONLY in the idea that Huckleberry Sandbox would actually SAY this.

    Cartoon – SantaCat, scratch his eyes out!

  4. Maybe it’s just me, but anytime you use the phrase: “… injected into Republican pseudo-Christian hypocrites to make them gay is semen” (which I suspect will be pretty infrequent) – I think you should include an “appropriate” GIF – especially at this time of year!

    But like I say, that’s probably just me …

    • See what all those CME anatomy courses do to a person?

    • My friend, you have a warped sense of humour, a wonderfully warped sense of humour!  LMAO!!!

      God bless all those CME anatomy classes!

    • Much too big to be Republican.  06

    • Damn, I’ve been attending the wrong Continuing Ed. courses!!

      • Hope you’ll scroll back this far, but given my late entry I doubt it.

        Your post seems to indicate you might be in the healthcare field.  Is that correct?

        I know lots of profession require Continuing Education, so I was curious if yours was health related.

        • Yes, I am in the healthcare field.  I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, have been since 1972.  Under that rubric, as it were, I have been a practicing psychotherapist since 1972. I got into the field before receiving my master’s degree, and just last month hit 50 years in the field.  I have worked in the non-profit sector virtually all that time, first for the state of New York, and then for a private, non-profit organization in New Jersey.  I had a private practice for a few years, as well.
          In what part of the “doctoring” world does your life revolve? 
          Joanne deserves the credit for alerting me to your question.

  5. RWW: When I saw the title “Christians are choosing to be ignorant”, I thought Daubenmire only forgot to put “pseudo-” in front of it, but couldn’t possibly have anything more to add, so I skipped it.

    WP: As Drumpf doesn’t respect anyone but himself, to all others different gradations of disrespect apply. Some of the white respondents in the poll, lefties in the blue coastal states for instance, could be almost spot on that Drumpf disrespects them as much as rich Republican donors of color.

    TNY: Brilliant, Andy, absolutely brilliant! 1803

    Cartoon: Steal them? Drumpf has already made sure most of them are empty boxes, hasn’t he.

  6. Puzzle — 5:26  Twisted or what?

    RWW — Looney tunes!!!  Talk about giving impetus to the anti vaxxers.  Barf Bag utilised!!!

    Washington Post — “50% of white Americans and 14% of black Americans are wrong!” — AMEN!!!  Some people just don’t get it!  I wonder what the numbers are for Hispanic Americans, including Puerto Ricans!

    The New Yorker — LMAO Andy!!!  That makes as much sense as any other explanation . . . maybe more!

    Cartoon — That’s all Republicans know how to do!  They would steal their own grandmothers blind!


  7. Thanks all!  Pooped hugs! 29

  8. RWW: Did he say he’d read something?  So, it’s the old “Garbage, garbage out! story?  Can he read/  does he believe everything he reads? who creates his reading list, “Breitbart Review”?  Amazing, also, that those who claim all science is “Junk science,” can believe that science has this phenomenal capacity!
    WaPo: Can anyone believe that this ass has nothing but disdain, to put it politely, for non-whites?
    New Yorker: Andy is on the pulse!
