observations and opinion
February 20, 2019
People are really upset about what a dead actor said in an old magazine 48 years ago. If they’re looking for things to be offended by, the past offers a wealth of material.

SUBORNING PERJURY, PART 3,211
The noose has been tightening around Donald Trump’s neck for so long, he ought to have ligature marks by now. NOTHING moves the needle on this guy.
Nancy Pelosi tries to cancel the State of the Union address until the shutdown is over. At least she’s not afraid of the guy. That’s different.
POST ELECTION HOUSECLEANING OF NON-LUNATICS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE

Trump to fire John Kelly?
After letting Melania fire the Deputy National Affairs advisor, word is that Trump plans to cut out Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen and chief of staff John Kelly. Fans of Game of Thrones will recall how that worked for Donald’s avatar, Prince/King Joffrey.

Manafort makes a plea deal with a cooperation agreement.
Avert your eyes, Mr. President.

best meme ever. We can close the meme factory now
”Donald did you go kala in your pants? Did you? You can tell us but you can’t juat sit there like that.”
May 29, 2018 ROSEANNE
Roseanne Barr lost her sitcom today after referring to Valerie Jarrett as the love child of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes. That totally screws the cast and the crew of the show, but think of the career opportunity it opens up for Roseanne.
As April 2018 turns to May, more people escape (or are ejected) from the Trump Universe.
Don’t miss the new National Lampoon movie, “The Griswalds go to India”
Zimbabwe’s President Mugabe, told he had to resign, didn’t. He appears to have chosen the “brains” over the “signature” option in the Luca Brazi Test.
In the process he has invented a new dance move: The Mugabe. Ignore the music and don’t move a muscle.
Let’s be honest, this Al Franken thing is going to get very sad, very fast….
What more need be said?
U.S. Attorney General swears, under oath, that he told the truth the last time he swore under oath.
It is proving VERY difficult to panic and make money at the same time.
White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly says Robert E. Lee was an “honorable man” and that the Civil War could have been avoided if people had only “compromised.”
Lee turned down command of Lincoln’s Army in order to wage war against the United States, in support of a slave state. Hmm….
hey say the suddenly famous George Papadopoulos probably wore a wire while working for the Mueller investigation
THANKS to Harvey Weinstein, Hollywood has suddenly learned that sexual harassment is not just a work perk.
The Las Vegas massacre on October 1st inevitably leads gun fanatics to say “this is not the time to talk about gun control.” So when is?
Trump’s reaction to the Puerto Rico crisis is, shall we say, lacking in sensitivity?
September 18, 2017 Canadian Conservative MP Gerry Kitz referred to Canada’s Liberal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna as “Climate Barbie.” McKenna is quite beautiful but NOT someone to be belittled with a derisive sexist remark. My comment about Mr. Kitz took a gentle, purple form:

A terrible shadow falls across the land. Eclipse 2017
“Some very good people” on both sides of the Nazi, anti-Nazi argument says the President
Why is the left so reliably bigoted against the only countries they could possibly live in?
Mr. Trump has a magic for condensing ugliness into a few, misspelled sentences.

The Republicans’ terrible and stupid addiction. Tastes good, they say.
The Paris terror attacks in November 2015, and the absolute bullshit reasoning called “root causes”
Marriage equality. Finally.
The most important three words ever uttered on “Mad Men.” It is the question every American has to answer, and many say “yes”
She should just have said this, and moved on. But no, nothing was ever simple.
