George is furious at TriMet. We saw the lift bus pass the door three times yesterday, but we often see Lift buses that aren’t mine go by. I called, and dispatch told me that the driver had come here at 12:35, and I was not here. I told her that was untrue. I’m guessing that the driver went to the wrong building, because I had been waiting in the lobby since 12:20. I talked to customer service and filed a complaint. I had to cancel my appointment with Sarah, and George did not get his new ankle. I’ll have to reschedule, after I know what’s going on with my eye. I’m getting a late start today, because Julie was here from 7:30 – 11:30, She helped me shower. I’m a pampered puddy tat. Then we worked together to do the dreaded task, cooked a half a dozen chicken breasts, and did some light cleaning. After she left, I had lunch and did my research. I’m getting tired already.

Today’s took me 2:38 (average 4:48). To do it, click here. How did you do?
From YouTube (Jeff Merkley Channel): Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley outlines the ‘Stopping Abuse and Fraud in Electronic (SAFE) Lending Act,’ legislation to crack down on some of the worst abuses of the payday lending industry and protect consumers from deceptive and predatory practices that strip wealth from working families.
Oregon and Senator Jeff Merkley still lead the way!!
From Daily Kos: Cassandra McWade got into a car accident on a stretch of highway in North Carolina. The 25-year-old McWade was fine, but her car wasn’t in any shape to drive and she needed a tow. Enter self-described “conservative Christian” Kenneth Shupe. He’s the tow truck driver that was called in to help McWade out.
When he saw “a bunch of Bernie Sanders stuff” he said he told the woman, “very politely,” that he could’t tow her car because she was “obviously a socialist” and advised her to “call the government” for a tow.
"Every business dealing in recent history with a socialist minded person I have not gotten paid," Shupe said. "Every time I deal with these people I get ‘Berned’ with an ‘e’ not a ‘u’."
Holy. Shit. There are too many things wrong here. First, should McWade call the government that employs tons of tow truck operators and pays for their services with citizens’ money? Second, I’m not calling Kenneth Shupe a liar when he says that “socialist minded” people have not paid him but let me put it this way—Kenneth Shupe is a liar.
Shupe, who runs Shupee Max Towing in Travelers Rest, said he is a conservative Christian who supports Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Shupe said he has drawn a line in the sand not to do business with Bernie Sanders’ supporters.
Trump supporters reflect the love passed down from their Fuhrer, Rump Dump Trump.
From NY Times: In a Europe struggling with a rise in Islamophobia, riven by debates about the flood of Syrian migrants and on edge over religious, ethnic and cultural disputes, London has elected its first Muslim mayor.
Sadiq Khan — a Labour Party leader, a former human rights lawyer and a son of a bus driver from Pakistan — was declared the winner after a protracted count that extended into Saturday. He will be the first Muslim to lead Britain’s capital.
The victory also makes him one of the most prominent Muslim politicians in the West.
If Rump Dump is elected, he would make the Mayor of London ineligible to visit the US.
