Jul 262017

It’s been a very hectic day.  It began at 4:30 AM, when a resident on my floor fell asleep while cooking and started a minor cooking fire.  It wasn’t bad enough to evacuate me, but when I heard the alarm, I got up, opened my door, and smelled smoke.  I had to get dressed, pop on George, and prepare for evacuation, just in case.  Jason, my tech, can’t come until Saturday.  His car has a blown transmission, and the shop is looking for parts.  It’s a ’98 Volvo.  I’m waiting for a grocery delivery from Store to Door.  They told me they had reduced my driver’s route, and that I can expect delivery between 10:00 AM and 12:00 Noon, instead of between 1:00 and 3:00 PM.  It’s 11:45, and they haven’t come yet.  Needless to say, I’m pooped.  They arrived just before Noon, and groceries are put away!

From YouTube (GQ channel): The Republicans Are Bailing on Trump | The Resistance with Keith Olbermann


This a rare occasion in which I disagree with Keith. While some Republicans are whining and bitching to cover their butts, but that’s a long way from bailing on the Fuhrer. That won’t happen until it’s so bas that they see themselves about to be tarred, feathered and driven from office.  Republicans in Nixon’s day were a far better breed of criminal. RESIST!!

From YouTube (MSNBC Channel): President Donald Trump Blocks Transgender People From Serving in Military


I don’t see why transgender people can’t join the service, when transspecies monsters have joined Trump’s administration. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: In an extraordinary rebuke of the President of the United States, the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. have obtained a restraining order against Donald J. Trump.

The order, which the Girls Scouts were granted on Monday night, prevents Trump from coming within three hundred feet of any gathering of the Scouts’ organization.

Carol Foyler, a Girl Scouts spokesperson, said that while the G.S.U.S.A. sought the restraining order “out of an abundance of caution,” the girls themselves were “in no way, shape or form” afraid of President Trump.

“They’re prepared to deal with bobcats and bears,” she said. “They can handle a malignant narcissist.”

It’s a good thing they did, Andy. Otherwise, Putin’s Pervert would probably grope them. RESIST!!

Sam has been gone since 6/29, and she has been sorely missed.  But now she’s back! It’s that time of week again, so here are four excellent video clips from Sam’s show last night.  Enjoy!!

Trump’s Voter “Integrity” Commission


Oregon’s Secretary of State, Dennis Richardson, said NO! How about yours? Kobitch can take a long flying fu*k off a short pier!

Louie Gohmert’s Freestyle History Lesson


These Congressional Republicans don’t need gender reassignment surgery. They need race reassignment surgery. However, the technology to make them members of the human race is beyond our present means.

When Will Trump Get Impeached? Well…


If the House ever looks likely to impeach Trump, he will resign, and Pence will grant him a full pardon. That’s why it’s better to win in 2018 first and go after both.

Thank You, Nasty Women!




Jul 192017

I was awake most of Monday night, because I had cotton mouth, as I was allowed no liquids.  The Surgery Center was efficient.  During the surgery, Christine told me that the cancer surgery had made the cataract more difficult to extract and the pain drops were wearing off.  When she applied more drops, I had a brief moment of intense burning, but otherwise there was no pain during the procedure.  I got to look through the eye this morning, and the effect is phenomenal. The vision is clear and colors are brilliant.  The computer screen is still blurry, because I have to wear my glasses, which are intended for distance, to protect the eye.  I can’t wait to get the other eye done.  This is today’s only article, because I have a follow-up appointment this afternoon.

From YouTube (GQ Channel): A Timeline of Treason | The Resistance with Keith Olbermann


It is what Keith says it is: a timeline of treason. RESIST!!

From The Rachel Maddow Show: Trump, Putin had second, undisclosed, hour-long encounter at G20

Ian Bremmer, political scientist and president of The Eurasia Group, talks with Rachel Maddow about the revelation of an undisclosed second encounter between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin that left US allies concerned and no official record.


Consider this in the context that Jared Kushner tried to establish a backchannel of communications with the Russian government, so that nobody in the US government would be aware of what is said. Why does the Trump Reich want to hide dealings with Russia from America? It seems clear that the second meeting between Trump and Putin included only a Russian translator was also a safe way to discuss quid pro quo in secret. That’s conspiracy. RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was rushed to the hospital late Monday night with what doctors diagnosed as a low white-vote count.

Doctors at Walter Reed Army Medical Center said that when McConnell arrived at the facility his white-vote count had fallen below fifty and he had gone into shock.

Dr. Harland Dorrinson, a physician at Walter Reed who is monitoring McConnell’s condition, called his low white-vote count “very serious.”

“Mitch McConnell needs a white-vote count of at least fifty in order to function,” he said. “If it falls below fifty and stays there for an extended period of time, he cannot survive.”

Dang Andy! So that explains it. This might give Bought Bitch Mitch a chance to socialize with his pal, Antonin Scalia. Winking smile RESIST!!



…for now.

Jul 072017

I just returned from my doctor’s appointment and ate lunch.  The report was a good.  I’m recovering on or ahead of schedule, anf I have no need to go back, unless I have trouble.  The only down side, is that I’m extremely tired.  I understand that Putin’s pervert and Putin agreed to cooperate in cyber security.  Isn’t that what they’ve been doing all along?  I’m too pooped to research it now, but I shall cover the meeting tomorrow, as I expect to be back in the saddle then.

From YouTube (Funny or Die Channel): The Miracles of Jesus Under Trumpcare


Dang! Bought Bitch Mitch is Republican Supply-side Jesus?!!?  RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is being dispatched to Pyongyang in what the White House is calling a high-stakes mission to reverse North Korea’s years of progress in math and science.

DeVos, who is expected to arrive in Pyongyang later this week, plans to throw a monkey wrench in North Korea’s swiftly advancing nuclear program by replacing its current system of training scientists with a dizzying array of vouchers, sources said.

According to the White House, it is hoped that, after a few weeks in North Korea, DeVos will succeed in returning that nation’s nuclear program to pre-1970 levels.

At a press briefing announcing the mission, the White House deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, called DeVos “our nation’s best bet to stop North Korea.”

Dang Andy! Sarah Upchuckabee is right!! RESIST!!

From Daily Kos: Kelly Macias wrote a sobering piece, Politics in Texas provide insight into how the rest of the nation can go and it’s downright scary, that prompted a question in my mind. What do Republicans run on versus what they are doing when in office? Further, I asked, what are Democrats running to do if they were to win?

With those questions in mind, I did some digging, checking out every representative’s campaign web page and identifying the 3 top issues each candidate raises. I looked at all 150 seats and discovered some interesting and sobering things. Before I share my findings, let’s take a quick look at the makeup of the Texas House of Representatives.

A quick disclaimer; I am not a Texan, which, for purposes of this exercise, I think will prove useful since I have no preconceived notion of any of the players involved. This allowed me to remain somewhat neutral as I reviewed their campaign information.


  • Number of Representatives = 150
  • Republican-held seats = 95 (63%)
  • Democratic-held seats = 55 (37%)
  • Seats not contested by Democrats in the last cycle = 60 (40%)
  • Seats Republicans needed to win to secure majority = 16 (11%)
  • Constituents per House District = 167,637
  • Constituents represented by Democrats = 9,220,035
  • Constituents Democrats DID NOT SEEK to represent = 10,058,220

Now that’s what I call pathetic!  If you don’t compete, you can’t win! RESIST!!

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

The Real Housewife of Pennsylvania Avenue


I disagree on one point. Trump is orange trash, not white trash.

Dan Savage Interview


It’s nice to see Bill interviewing a LGBT activist. Recently, he has been too nice to too many Republicans. While we are the party of urban Americans, Savage referring to rural folks as "knuckle drag America" does not help. If anything, it energizes hatred against Democrats. If we all need to stand together, and we do, that includes rural Americans.

Richard A. Clarke: Warnings


Chilling!! Clarke could not be more spot-on.

New Rule: Make Summer Great Again


He sure brought back memories of summer sand in my butt during my teenage years in Atlantic City. Smile with tongue out

Now it’s time to…

It’s that time of week again, so here are four excellent video clips from Sam’s show last night.  Enjoy!!

Medicaid’s Last Stand


RepubliCare would not cut Medicaid, the Pope is not Catholic, and bears never, ever shit in the woods.

ICE Unleashed


That Republicans hate Latinos is not news.

Persisting 101 with Elizabeth Warren


Here’s the complete list of Sam’s guests that she has not outshined: Liz.

Last Call for Nasty Women


Now that’s nasty!

If you enjoyed those, have a good chuckle.  Done?
