I slept very poorly, because of severe coughing and people drag racing in the street.  Pardon my brevity.  Today’s only article from me.

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today’s took me 4:33 (average 6:03).  To do it, click here. How did you do?

Short Takes: Bill Maher

President Crazypants


Uh Oh! My coffee pot is spying on me.

New Rule: Collective Responsibility


He makes a good point.  RESIST!!



Now gutted


Bill Is Still Funny

It’s Saturday, and Bill Maher is still funny, so here are three clips from last night’s show.

Six Degrees of Kevin Putin


Great Point! Putin overpaid!

Bill McKibben: Fighting Back on Climate Change


What Pruitt is doing to the EPA boggles the mind! Democratic politicians DO need to get feistier. Republicans are saying rising ocean temperatures cause global warming. That’s like saying smell causes shit!! Republicans are not conservative, They are fascist!

New Rule: Liberal Bad Boys


"When a hooker blows a politician, it puts a lobbyist out of work."  I have to remember that one!  This is a simple case of IOKIYAR.

When you finish laughing, it’s time to



Bill Interviewed Assa

Once again, it's time for some relief,courtesy of Bill Maher.  Here are two clips from last night's show.

Rep. Darrell Issa Interview


Issa lied. He staged a demonstration of supporters at his office. Decent people got wind of it and counter-protested, but virtually all of Issa's interaction with "demonstrators" was really with supporters. He does sound somewhat reasonable, but I know he will not follow through on any of the good things he said, especially about investigating Trump. How do I know? Darrell Issa Issa assa and Darrell Issa turd!

New Rule: Press We Can


He does make a really excellent point. I can count the "news" shows worth watching on one hand with fingers left over.



How Does He Do It?

I struggle to find even an occasional joke about the way our nation is crashing and burning at the intersection of hate, lies, greed and incompetence that identify Fuhrer Drumphenfarten’s Fifth Reich.  Nevertheless Bill Maher makes me laugh while zeroing in on the worst of it.  Here are two clips from last night’s show.

The Trump Circus


Agent Orange is the nickname I gave to the former Speaker, the one that could not get a Boehner, because of his fake tan. Time for an update. Is Palin sufficient payback for Cruz?

New Rule: The Magic R


I didn’t coin the term, but I started using IOKIYAR ten years ago. The Fuhrer is not the first Republican disaster in the White House. Look at Tricky Dick, Ronnie Ray Gun and GHW ChickenHawk. However, Drumpfenfarten is by far the worst.



Bill Wasn’t as Funny

We can almost always count on Bill Maher to remind us of highly necessary truths at the same time that he provokes the kind of laughter that is a balm to a Trump-weary soul.  Bill wasn’t as funny last night as he normally is.  Of course there were ma few good laughs.  After all, he IS Bill Maher, but this may be the most serious I’ve seen him, especially during his New Rules.  Here are three clips for your elucidation and enjoyment.

Is Trump Tired of Losing?


That’s a good analysis of Loony Toons from the Fuhrer and the Fascists: whiney little bitches!!

The Al Franken Millennium


Al is the person who invented the Republican character, "Supply Side Jesus." If you thought I did, I stole it from him, and do respect him. However, I think he’s being too collegial in some of the things he says.

New Rule: Make America Learn Again


When I was young, I got to learn how to think and how to learn, Today, with Republicans controlling most school boards, text books and curricula, students are learning what to think, what to memorize, and not to learn instead. Would that we could change that! School Board Member is far too important a job to give to a Republican!



Bill Maher Right Again

Bill was in rare form last night and displayed an ability to mix fact and satire in a way equaled by very few.  Here are three video clips from his show.

Trump Did WHAT?


I don't know about penis enlargement for Trump. Do we even have a micro-surgeon that wouldn’t castrate him as a service to humanity? Frederick Douglass is Trump's favorite kind of black person: dead.

Sam Harris: Winning the War of Ideas


Sadly, a war of ideas is a guaranteed loss with the Fuhrer injecting his hatred into the mix.

New Rule: Cheer No Evil


Go Falcons!!
