I Do It By Idling My SUV While Listening to His Speech. OK, I Don’t Actually *Listen*…

In Italy to give a speech on global warming, former President Obama arrived in a private jet, took over an entire Tuscan resort village, and were driven everywhere by a 13-car motorcade.

Huh… wonder how poor people fight global warming.

Cartoon of the Day – Redline


[Michael P. Ramirez]

It seems that almost every time I post something defending Trump, I always preface it with a reminder that I didn’t vote for the guy (or Clinton). I ought to stop doing that.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

Hey, the week is half way over!

Sweet!

Speaking of which…

SHAMELESS PLUG WARNING

I like sweet tea. Even when it’s unsweet tea. Or so I wrote at my little blog.

You know what else is sweet? It’s time for Wednesday Night Open Thread. Which means you pick the topic. Write about whatever you like. It’s your turn to drive the conversation.

Who wants to start?

Nah. That’s why I have garbage cans… apparently.

Reality Needs to Be 50% Slower

[MEGA Vortex Funnel Marble Run (part 1, 1200 rainbow marbles) ASMR] (Viewer #188,368)

The first segment starts out at 50% speed, and I find it beautiful and soothing. The second segment is full speed, and it’s just not as nice. Toward the end, the glow-in-the-dark marbles are interesting since you can only see moving lights and have no idea why they’re moving the way they are.

In Both Cases, He’s Right

In Saudi Arabia, President Trump warned those choosing terrorism, “your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be condemned”.

Weird… isn’t that the same thing he said to the Republicans who voted against the border wall?

Random Thoughts: The Orb!

For fun, I’d sometimes Sonny Bunch the kids and argue Team Rocket are really the good guys. Made my daughter so mad that wife made me stop.

The Trump presidency has become so exhausting. Can you believe we have well over seven more years of this?

Rompers are now the de facto uniform of the #RESISTANCE

Both Trump and Hillary were treated horribly during the election.
That’s not to say they were treated unfairly, though.

Trump’s agenda is constantly being undermined by the deep state, the secret, underwater government led by Aquaman.

“This is just like from the Handmaiden’s Tale when Bob Handmaiden fought Dumbledore!” -modern political commentary

I’m at the “I’m sorry I made fun of Jeb” stage.

My sources are telling me that what the FBI found so exonerates Trump that he’s going to be reverse-impeached and serve two extra years.

I pretended to be Supreme Court Justice and hung out in their cafeteria and heard they’ve obtained the dark orb that nullifies pardon power.

Only hope I had of Trump presidency is that he might lose his temper and bite someone like the Saudi King in the face.

I want a president who’d chuck the Saudis’ stupid medal in their faces and say, “We don’t need you! We’ll make our own oil using SCIENCE!”

We keep saying “Read another book!” when people make Harry Potter political references, but are we sure they didn’t just watch the movie?

Why didn’t Saruman just show up in person?

Finally, making a Harry Potter political reference would actually be appropriate.

You just can’t visit Saudi Arabia and have any dignity, can you?

Every breaking story for this next week better be orb related.

What if the Dow skyrockets tomorrow? We’d have to assume it’s because of the power of the orb. TRUMP MUST STEAL THE ORB!

Will people stop doubting Trump now? Any lesser president would have been destroyed by the orb.

Remember when Obama refused to touch the orb because he feared the darkness inside? But Trump embraced the darkness. He is stronger now.

Don’t take any of this as an endorsement of the orb’s dark power; I’m just trying to analyze the political ramifications.

I would rank Trump’s “I shall control the orb; it shall not control me” speech as his most presidential so far.

It was weird how at Norte Dame Pence screamed “TRUMP HAS DOOMED US BY TOUCHING THE ORB!” and the students were right to walk out on him.

People are calling Trump a hypocrite using his old tweets about how no one should ever touch the orb, but you have to understand the context.

CNN is reporting that staring into the orb has driven Trump mad. This is more fake news.

Some are saying that Trump’s vow to destroy all who question the orb is unconstitutional. If so, our Constitution should be disregarded.
The Constitution was written by weak-willed fools who doubted the power of the orb. They are dead now. But the orb lives.

Ranks ranked:
5. Colonel
4. Admiral
3. Commander
2. Sergeant
1. Moff

My sources are telling me the Supreme Court justices are going to form together into one giant justice and fight Trump.

If Sean Hannity were fatter and I were meaner, I’d call him “Sean Manatee.”

Tuesday Night Open Thread

Lately, I’ve noticed that some comments have ended up in the trash. Got no idea how that’s happening, and I don’t know if you’ve noticed.

Perhaps you have, but haven’t bothered to mention that your comments disappeared (or never showed), because you figured I’d just delete that, too. But I wouldn’t.

I won’t usually delete a comment. If you use a naughty word, I might edit it to make it PG-13, but actually delete the comment? No, I can’t think of a reason I’d do that. If you leave a really stupid comment, I want it to remain so that people can mock you unmercilessly. Yes, I made that word up. I think.

Anyway, the only reason I’d delete a comment — yes, I thought of a reason — is if you leave the same comment twice. Even then, if I don’t like what you said, I might leave both just so that people can think you are not only an ass, but like to hear yourself say the same thing again and again.

Back to the comments that were deleted. I sometimes use the WordPress app on my iPhone to read comments when they post. Because it’s a smaller screen, there’s a chance I might hit the wrong thing and delete your comment. If so, it’s an accident. And, if I see a comment on one of my posts in the Trash folder, I’ll restore it.

If you’re in the mood to help me figure it out, then start leaving comments. After all, it’s Tuesday Night Open Thread, and this IS the place to leave comments. About anything. Or about nothing. Doesn’t matter.

Who wants to start?

Most Places Are Tearing These Down

China is sending an 18-foot tall statue of Karl Marx to his home town in Germany to mark the 200th anniversary of his birth.

I’m betting that, like when he lost the Olympics to Rio, Obama was really sad he couldn’t get this one.
