Normally I don't comment on his hair but

HOLY SHIT!!! WTAF is going on? It’s three distinct colors.

Somethings wrong with whoever is doing his dye job. It’s like they forgot to do the sides.

The intensely emetic poetry of Donald Trump:

I never understood wind.
You know, I know
windmills very much.
I have studied it
better than anybody
else. It’s very expensive.
They are made in China
and Germany mostly.
—Very few made here, almost none,
but they are manufactured, tremendous
—if you are into this—
tremendous fumes. Gases are
spewing into the atmosphere. You know
we have a world

So the world
is tiny
compared to the universe.
So tremendous, tremendous
amount of fumes and everything.
You talk about
the carbon footprint
— fumes are spewing into the air.
Right? Spewing.
Whether it’s in China,
Germany, it’s going into the air.
It’s our air
their air
everything — right?

A windmill will kill many bald eagles.
After a certain number
they make you turn the windmill off.
That is true.
—By the way
they make you turn it off.
And yet, if you killed one
they put you in jail.
That is OK.

You want to see a bird graveyard?
You just go.
Take a look.
A bird graveyard.
Go under a windmill someday,
you’ll see
more birds
than you’ve ever seen
in your life.

I'm amazed...I have to sit down...

On MSNBC during the story about the NRA, they actually showed a photo of Wayne LaPierre and not Joe and Hunter Biden. Will wonders never cease.

They must be reading my posts over there….

In 1956, (NINETEEN FIFTY-SIX!) Ian Fleming wrote

what came to be one of the most essential James Bond novels, From Russia With Love. If you have read the book, or even seen the movie, you are aware that the plot revolves around a Russian conspiracy to destroy the morale and reputation of the British Secret Service.

The architect of this enterprise is a Russian grandmaster chess player named Kronsteen, who conceives of an intricate plan to ensnare James Bond and his superiors in a scandal, utilizing many players. The Book is massively entertaining, and interestingly, for those who enveloped in James Bond trivia, ended in such a way that Fleming could kill off James Bond, so he would not have to write another book with him as a character. Of course, he resurrected him in his next book, Dr No, and the rest is history as they say.

The point of this post is that the Russians have been conceiving of these ways to infiltrate and destroy America since 1945 if not before, and these idiot traitorous Republicans became willing dupes of the billionaires who took over Russia after the fall of communism. I know that it’s anathema to quote Richard Nixon, but if nothing else he was schooled and brilliant in foreign policy, political science, and history, and when the Berlin Wall fell, and everything began to happen rapidly, he warned that there were issues involving the Russians that had been repressed for literally hundreds of years, which would rise to the top, and threaten us in a different fashion than we were familiar with. (Yes, I ended the sentence with a preposition. So arrest me)

He was absolutely correct: we are being attacked via our mainstream channels rather than by ground forces or nuclear weapons. They have infiltrated our government to the highest levels, and it will only take one serious mistake to allow this group to overcome what’s left of American democracy. We almost made that mistake in 2016.

Americans need to be made aware that these people are brilliant and resourceful , and they are doggedly persistent. Yes, I know this particular strike may not have worked, but we have no idea what else is in the works and I do remember what one intelligence officer said to me many years ago, that if I knew one percent of what was going on in this world, I would be afraid to leave my home. Yes, it’s true that he was a right winger, but he was the counterpart to some in the Kremlin, who understand how this all really works. We are in fact, but pawns in the descendent-of-Kronsteen’s chessboard but need to make noise loudly and quickly. Otherwise we shall become a colony of the Russian oligarchs. It can happen overnight.

So I was 3 years of age in 1956,

And my brother had visited the United Nations as a member of his high school class in Lower Bucks County, PA. It was a beautiful Spring day and all these people on our block had these flagpoles upon which the (48) Stars and Stripes flew. I wanted to have a flag myself so I went into my brother’s room and took one of the twenty or so small, desk-size flags that he had purchased on his trip and put it on the front lawn. I chose a bright pretty one.

An hour later, the first police car arrived with two officers and my mother answered the door scared to death. “What’s the matter?” Was her question. They led her towards the curb and there, planted in the ground for all to see, was a pretty red flag…with a yellow hammer and sickle.

I confessed to doing it on the spot and the officers let my mom off with a stern warning that I needed to be controlled because apparently I almost caused an international incident from the way they were talking to her. She was appropriately contrite, picked up the flag, hollered at me in front of them and dragged me back to the house. The show satisfied the officers and they left.

Once inside, my mother explained why she had to pretend that she was so mad at me and told me that in America you cannot show any respect for the Russians or the USSR. She told me that in fact I had done nothing wrong morally or illegal but it’s something one cannot do and be part of the community at large. She utilized kid-words but I got the point. What amazed everyone in the family was that I had managed to pick the only controversial flag he had purchased -he bought it because we have Russian heritage.

So when I see these Republican creeps kowtowing to Putin and doing his bidding, I think back to the days of the Cold War and what the ramifications would have been if they had acted this way. I would think the term “firing squad” might be included in any sentence. And that’s not hyperbole.

Ummm...Hey MSNBC....

While I very much appreciate the coverage of the arrest of this lying pig Smirnov, when you report ancillary stories about him, vilifying him appropriately, can you PLEASE stop showing photos of the Bidens, father and son? Show a photo of the of the individual who was indicted not his victims.

Yes, I know I’m being picky, but running a negative story while showing the Bidens somehow rankles me. Maybe I’m wrong about this but…

I would like to remind us older folk and tell the younger folk

that Marcia Clark and Chris Darden, by all accounts including that of Mr Darden, developed a sexual relationship during their prosecution of O.J. Simpson for a double homicide.

This can easily occur when two people are in close proximity for lengths of time. I personally know all about that process. Many times over, I might add.

So of course, the issue here for the pretend-to-be-less-than-sanctimonious is that untruths may have been stated as to when sexual intercourse occurred. Penetration, of any type, is the line we as a society utilize to define the act of sexual Congress, as it were. It becomes a whole different story when an individual is penetrated in any of his or her orifices.

In fact, the Defense does not care one whit about the potential dissembling, it wants the public to envision these two individuals, naked, sweating, thrusting, etc. I guarantee you that if this couple were Caucasian, this would not be the issue, or if it were, it would have been presented in a more arcane fashion.

Oh…are you upset that she may have hired him because he may or may not have been a sex partner? Look at any administration in any city, state, town, or hamlet and when you are told the inside story of how so and so was hired, it’s the same old same old.

I’m really tired of faux outrage concerning sex and sexuality. The Reagan crowd began using it wholesale with Falwell and his ilk in the late 1970’s and it has exploded into a massive Pearl-clutching by the hypocrites who are banging each other out of wedlock, asking casual acquaintances to join in threesomes, purchasing sex-products delivered always in plain brown boxes. The porn addiction among these individuals is extreme and all the while they act as though this is why the country is going to Hell in a hand basket.

I shall end this tirade with a direct quote from, believe it or not, my mother, who once casually remarked in her 80’s that “…what these assholes need is a real orgasm.” Truer words never spoken.
