It has been a frustrating day for me.  Last night, I unlocked my desk to take my bedtime meds, locked it up, and went directly to bed.  When I got up, I started to prepare breakfast and headed for the throne, but I could not lock my door, because the lanyard with my keys, that I wear 24/7, was not around my neck.  It has to be in my room, because I had never left the room, since the last time  I used it.  I searched for three hours and could not find it.  I finally broke down and called a locksmith to pick and re-key the lock on my desk, so I could take my meds.  That’s $255 worth of ARGH!  The Manager gave me the duplicate room keys and a new door FOB.  To make matters worse, 89° may not be 90°, but it’s still too stinking hot!  Tomorrow will be better at 80°, but it will take two or three days for the building to bleed off the heat.  TGIF!!

Religious Ecstasy:

0812Broncos24-Bears17

The important part was the first quarter and the first half of the second, because both teams substituted liberally after that.  At that point, my Broncos led 10 – 0.  The Bears introduced a rookie QB named Mitch Trobiski.   Watch out world!  Some day that Bear will shit in the woods, and wherever else he wants!

Short Takes:

From Alternet: Stephen Colbert knows exactly where he stands on President Trump’s “fire and fury” threat toward North Korea.

“I’d like to go on the record. I do not want the Earth to blow up,” the Late Show host said. “That’s where my house is.”

He described the president’s threatening language as being akin to telling North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, “Go ahead, kill everybody. I’ll kill ’em deader. Then who wins?”

I found video.

The Fuhrer needs to stop making war decisions from his golf cart. RESIST!!

From Raw Story: President Donald Trump supporter and CNN contributor Jeffrey Lord is facing accusations of promoting Nazism.

According to Media Matters, Lord published an article attacking their organization that misspelled their president, Angelo Carusone’s, last name. When Carusone pointed that out, Lord responded with a tweet that simply said “Sieg Heil!” [Nazi delinked], the infamous Nazi salute.

Will CNN ban Bannon too? Please? RESIST!!

From Mother Jones: As President Donald Trump doubles down on his aggressive efforts to locate and deport undocumented immigrants, California’s Democratic lawmakers have been drafting a bill that would put new limits on federal immigration authorities’ ability to operate in the state. If passed into law, the California Values Act would erect a legal wall between California and Trump’s immigration policies. The bill, authored by State Senate President Pro-Tempore Kevin de León, would effectively bar cooperation between federal immigration authorities and California’s local, county, and state law enforcement agencies.

Even though the state might be Californicated, this is a great idea. RESIST!!

I have time to do a little more than I thought I would, but this is still today’s only article from me.  I’ll publish it after I return from my appointment with Megan.  I leave in an hour.

I’m back.  My 30 minute appointment took only 5 hours.  Megan agreed that I was right to discontinue Cymbalta and is putting me on Lyrica next.  It should come in mid-week, and I can take Gabapentin in the meantime.  I am sooooo pooped!!

From KP Daily Funnies: Colbert takes on Gary Johnson

 

What a fool! Jill Stein is smarter, but still has no chance to win. It’s too bad she’s in Putin’s (R-RU) pocket for his pro-Trump propaganda.

From The New Yorker: Asked at a town-hall meeting on Wednesday to name his favorite foreign leader, the Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson seemed stumped at first before finally responding, “Obi-Wan Kenobi.”

The host of the town hall, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, initially appeared taken aback by Johnson’s answer, but the former New Mexico governor went on to defend it vigorously.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi is a Jedi Master, Chris,” Johnson said. “More than anyone else, he taught me that the Force is already strong with me.”

LOL Andy, but you and Colbert are after widdle Gary?!!? The SPCI is going to get you both!!  That’s Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Imbeciles!!

From Daily Kos: PBS and The Huffington Post have uncovered video evidence of Donald Trump’s long-held beliefs that he (and people like him) are genetically superior:

Barf Bag Alert!!

 

Do you know of anyone else with similar views on Eugenics? Do you remember what happened?

Colbert Serves Trump Rump

Since the last couple days have been so intense, I figured that it was time for some comic relief.  Enjoy!

Colbert: The Terrifying Reason Trump Won’t Stick to Facts

Trump’s debate performance Monday night could have been better, to say the least. The GOP nominee appeared to have shown up to the two-hour-long program with 20 minutes of material. And Trump’s obvious repetition wasn’t the GOP nominee’s only issue, as "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert pointed out. Trump "had some problems with the truth last…

Wendy was here this morning.  She shined and polished the TomCat, cleaned the counters and floors, remade the bed, and took a Mug Shot of me for you.  Today is the hottest day of the heat wave, with mid 90°s forecast.  Here’s that Mug Shot.

Short Takes:

From NY Times: Donald J. Trump said on Wednesday that he hoped Russian intelligence services had successfully hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, and encouraged them to publish whatever they may have stolen, essentially urging a foreign adversary to conduct cyberespionage against a former secretary of state.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said during a news conference here in an apparent reference to Mrs. Clinton’s deleted emails. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

Mr. Trump’s call was another bizarre moment in the mystery of whether Vladimir V. Putin’s government has been seeking to influence the United States’ presidential race.

His comments came amid questions about the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s computer servers, which American intelligence agencies have told the White House they have “high confidence” was the work of the Russian government.

Now that he’s actually committing a crime, I’ll speculate some more. Is Rump Dump making this request, because Putin (R-RU) delivered on a previous hacking request? Why did Rump Dump tell GOP Pootie that, if elected, he will recognize the Crimea as Russian Territory, and lift US sanctions against him for invading Ukraine, of which the Crimea is part?  For what does Trump owe Putin?

From Crooks and Liars: Before the show is broadcast, Stephen Colbert usually takes questions from the audience. His reaction to a question by a female college student, "if you have Donald Trump on your show tonight, what would you ask him?” had the audience in stitches.

 

Great answer. It wouldn’t surprise me, if, asked the same question about hecklers at the Democratic National Convention, he responded, "What does Trump’s taste like?"

From Alternet: President Obama and VP Biden both spoke on the third night of the Democratic National Convention. But it was Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) who really caught John Oliver’s eye.

 

We Democrats are not so thin-skinned that we cannot laugh at our own.

I’m writing early and did my research yesterday evening, because this is one of Wendy’s long mornings, and I expect her shortly.  (Now she’s gone and I’m freshened.  Tomorrow, please expect no more than a Personal Update, as I have an appointment with my Prosthetist.

Short Takes:

From Alternet: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) told Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show" last night that she thinks America is very much underestimating Donald Trump.

"[Trump] is one dangerous man and we need to take him really seriously," Warren told Colbert.

Elizabeth Warren is a Democratic superdelegate and is speaking on behalf of Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention Monday.

 

As always, Liz Warren is spot-on.

From Think Progress: The NBA announced Thursday that it will no longer hold its All-Star Game in Charlotte next year because North Carolina state lawmakers refused to backtrack on HB2, the anti-transgender law passed earlier this year. Though the event would have had a $100 million impact on the city, Gov. Pat McCrory (R) simply doesn’t care if that’s what it takes to keep HB2 on the books.

The Fascist Republican Theocracy of McCrorystan is revolting, and hopefully its people will revolt.

From Raw Story: While panels on HBO’s Real Time can become contentious, Fridays night’s discussion about voting rights went completely out of control as a former GOP lawmaker went to war with columnist Ana Marie Cox and actress/activist America Ferrera.

 

When Bill doesn’t have time to be funny, you KNOW to pay attention!

Yesterday’s trip to the doctor tired me thoroughly, and pain from the injection site in my hand interfered with my sleep.  I did manage a brief Lona Nap this morning, but pardon my brevity.

Short Takes:

From Daily Kos: This is the absolute Insanity that’s going on in the GOP these days. Fueled by Donald Trump’s extremist rhetoric, fellow extremists like West Virginia lawmaker Michael Folk think tweets calling for a public hanging of Hillary Clinton are normal.

I kid you not folks.

www.cnn.com/…

On Friday, Folk had tweeted, "@HillaryClinton You should be tried for treason, murder, and crimes against the US Constitution… then hung on the Mall in Washington, DC."

Sadly, this extreme Rump Dump Rectumite might actually find agreement from the Regressive left.

From Crooks and Liars: Stephen Colbert brought back his famous ‘The Word’ segment from his Comedy Central days for his first night of coverage of the Republican National Convention, and he did not disappoint. From ‘Truthiness’ to ‘Trumpiness’, Colbert explained that’s how far we’ve devolved in just a decade.

 

Trumpiness?!!? He spelled it wrong. Winking smile

From Liberals Unite: U.S. Representative Steve King (R-IA) ignited a firestorm when he declared that white people had contributed more to civilization than any other sub-group of people.

The Tea Party Congressman made the remarks during a roundtable discussion hosted by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

The panel was discussing “the uniformly white leadership of the Republican Party” when fellow panelist Charlie Pierce, a writer for Esquire, stated: “If you’re really optimistic, you can say this was the last time that old white people would command the Republican Party’s attention, its platform, its public face.”

Barf Bag Alert!

 

Republican racism sure is UGLY!!  It’s as ugly as the presumptive Rectum.
