It’s that time of week again, and I’m happy to share four fine video clips from Bill’s show last night.  Enjoy!!

Monologue: Sweet Home Room Alabama

 

Like Bill, I was very upset to learn about Al Franken, and agree that it’s unfair to equate someone who is addressing their problems and taking responsibility for them with a continuing and recalcitrant pervert like Moore or Trump.

Chelsea Handler: Women in Office

 

I agree with her in principle, and recognize that women are underrepresented to an absurd extent. However, that a candidate is female cannot be the only issue in a campaign. I also agree that we need to look at things contextually.

Bill McKibben: The Hope Is in the Resistance

 

I’m glad that the scientists in Germany boycotted the Republican coal plan.

New Rule: The Scrooge of Our Time

 

Funny as hell, and so, so true.

Say goodbye to Bill until January.

RESIST THE REPUBLICAN REICH!!

Short Takes:

From YouTube (Inequality Media Channel): Denied the Right to Vote Because They’re Poor

 

I could not agree more. This is nothing more than weaponizing the Republican War on the poor. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Jubilant Trump voters on Thursday celebrated the prospect of a gigantic tax cut that will benefit everyone but them.

Across the country, Trump supporters were overjoyed that, after months of gridlock and wrangling, the man they voted for was about to make Americans other than them wildly richer.

“President Trump has taken a lot of hits from the fake-news media, but he stood his ground,” Carol Foyler, a Trump voter in Ohio, said. “Today he honored his pledge to the American people, except for me and anybody I know.”

From NY Times: The federal corruption trial of Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey ended in a mistrial on Thursday after jurors said they were unable to reach a verdict, leaving Mr. Menendez, a Democrat, free to return to Congress but injecting uncertainty as he faces re-election next year and his party faces a difficult battle to retake the Senate.

After interviewing jurors individually in his chambers, Judge William H. Walls emerged to tell the court that, after nine weeks of testimony, the jury was deadlocked and that, as a result, “there is no alternative but to declare a mistrial.”

One juror told reporters that 10 of the 12 jurors supported finding Mr. Menendez, a Democrat, not guilty, saying that prosecutors had not made the case that the favors and gifts exchanged between the senator and a wealthy eye doctor went beyond what good friends do for each other.

Menendez needs to go, but not until PIGnocchio is gone and cannot flip the seat. RESIST!!

Amen Sam! Alabama voters, prove us Yankee assholes wrong about you!

Keep Pence out of Democratic restrooms. He’s a Transrepublican with "a nice package".

Save Tangier Island From Itself

 

The scope of Republican ignorance is infinite.

Short Takes:

From YouTube (Daily Kos Channel): Rep. Jackie Speier on harassment in Congress

 

I fully agree with her, but am sick of Republicans and biased media using Clinton as an endless equalizer for scores of Republican perverts. RESIST!!

From Houston Chronicle: A Houston-area sheriff said Wednesday he’s concerned the driver of a truck displaying an expletive filled message against President Donald Trump and those who voted for him is creating a situation that could lead to confrontations with people offended by the sign.

Best window sticker I’ve seen! RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Breaking his silence on Alabama’s embattled Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate, Donald Trump warned on Wednesday that dumping Roy Moore could start a “dangerous trend” of believing women.

“I think we need to be very, very careful here,” Trump told reporters. “This is not just about Roy Moore. This is about our country deciding that we are going to start believing women, something that we have never done before.

“This is a very dangerous road we’re heading down,” he said.

Trump cautioned that, if instituted, a new practice of believing women would “totally destroy” the system that the country already has in place. “For years we’ve had a system of believing men,” he said. “It’s worked very well. It’s done a great job.”

Kudos to Andy for channeling Trump perfectly! RESIST!!

Store to Door just left after delivering my groceries, and I put them away.  Wendy is coming this evening to tend the sickly TomCat.  I’m hurrying to hide under my covers.

Short Takes:

From The New Yorker: Eric Trump has asked his father, Donald Trump, if he can have his brother Donald, Jr.,’s room, Eric Trump confirmed on Monday night.

“Don, Jr., got this ginormous room, and I got a crappy little one,” Eric Trump said. “Don, Jr., got to work in the real-estate company, and I got stuck with the winery. But all that’s about to change.”

Eric Trump said that, although his father had not yet responded to his request, he was optimistic that his wish would be granted. “It looks like Don, Jr., might not be needing his room for quite some time,” he said, barely suppressing a grin.

Make it so, Andy! Make it so! RESIST!!

From Cap Times: When Gov. Scott Walker announced his re-election campaign team today, it was like an invitation to a reunion for some of the players in the John Doe II scandal.

That scandal involved allegations that the Walker team was illegally coordinating with Wisconsin Club for Growth to raise money to fend off the recalls of Republican state senators and of Walker himself. (The Wisconsin Supreme Court eventually threw out the John Doe II prosecution in a corrupt and baseless decision in July 2015.)

Some familiar faces from that scandal are back on Team Walker.

Click through to smell the feces. The Fartfuhrer of Fitzwalkerstan is as vile as ever. RESIST!!

From Think Progress: In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions repeatedly came under heavy criticism from Democratic members. At issue was his statement, delivered under oath during his confirmation hearings, that neither he nor anyone else on the Trump campaign had contact with Russia during the course of the 2016 election. It was subsequently revealed that Sessions had multiple meetings with the Russian ambassador and knew about other contacts between campaign staff and Russians.

 

Amen! RESIST!!

This is my only article today.  I’m feeling slightly better than yesterday, but that isn’t saying much.  Virtually everything I found in my research are just new variations on old themes.  In addition, the Care2 Glitch Monster is so high on my shit list, that I’d just as soon avoid it, and especially the evil CAPTCHA today.

Religious Agony:

Every time I see that Orb, I pray that it’s soaked in Vaseline.

Short Takes:

From The New Yorker: The special counsel Robert Mueller announced on Saturday that he was closing the Justice Department’s Russia investigation, “effective immediately,” after hearing that President Vladimir Putin, of Russia, said he was innocent of any election meddling.

Moments after learning about Putin’s assertion, Mueller hastily assembled his staff of investigators to inform them that, now that Putin had fully exonerated himself, there was no point in continuing the probe.

“Vladimir Putin says he did nothing,” Mueller told his staff. “That’s good enough for me.”

Andy, that is absurd, but it appears to be what Putin’s Pee-Pee Puppet thinks Mueller should do. RESIST!!

From Alternet: On Sunday night, The New York Times reported that novice energy firm Whitefish Energy was wildly overcharging the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) for the hourly rate it paid line workers.

Whitefish Energy Holdings only had two employees when it was awarded a $300 million contract to restore electricity to Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria. To meet the shortfall, Whitefish hired contractors from Florida at rates varying from $42 per hour to $100 per hour with an average hourly rate of $63.

However, the company’s “shocking” contract allowed it to bill PREPA $319 per worker per hour.

The Times spoke to industry experts who said that $319 per hour is far, far above the norm about amounts to about 17 times what a Puerto Rican worker would make performing the same job.

Another day, another Republican rip-off. RESIST!!

From Common Dreams: Following the release of a slew of analyses showing that the GOP tax plan would raise taxes on many middle class families—despite repeated promises to the contrary by the Trump administration and Republican lawmakers—Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) conceded in an interview with the New York Times Friday that he "misspoke" when he declared last week that "nobody in the middle class is going to get a tax increase."

"I misspoke on that," McConnell told Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg‏.

Bought Bitch Mitch did NOT misspeak. He LIED!! Republicans are trying to raise YOUR taxes!! RESIST!!
