http://www.msnbc.com/am-joy/watch/media-clamp-down-at-white-house-press-briefings-975369795520

Writer Masha Gessen, having lived as a journalist in Russia under Putin's rise to power and his reversal of Russia's direction towards becoming a fledgling democracy back to authoritarianism, imho, understands both Trump and the stakes in the U.S. very well. My takeaway from this…

Jets Owner to Brits: You Need to Spend More on Cornerbacks

NEW YORK.  When President Donald Trump announced today that he would nominate New York Jets owner Woody Johnson to be U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, he did so in a way that reflected his scrappy “bridge and tunnel” upbringing in the borough of Queens, where the football team had its home for many years.

“Woody’s gonna be great, just great, okay?” Trump said.  “He’s gonna go over there and remind them we had a war and they lost, so they’re losers.”…

Did Any Of This Really Happen?

Editor's note: references to ethnicity and race are meant to show how we spoke about each other at the time.  I myself was half Polish and hid that to garner favor from the nuns.  We reserve the right to delete comments for any reason or no reason.…

Study Finds Sex Doesn’t Actually Sell Products

Study Finds Sex Doesn’t Actually Sell Products:  Researchers analyzed nearly 80 advertising studies published over the past 30 years and found that while people often remember a particularly racy ad, that frequently doesn’t translate into customers actually buying the product that the advertiser is selling.  I totally agree.  I recently saw an ad featuring a very sexy woman eating a burger and, instead of going right out and ordering a burger, I made an…

"Bare Midriff and Incense" = "Please Drug and Rape Me!"

Image result for cosby rapist meme

The face you make when you get away with it...

In my opinion, Bill Cosby is a rapist...  but that's not what this post is about...  

This post isn't even about the travesty that passes for the judicial system in this country where thugs with guns and badges can commit cold blooded murder on camera and white "athlete" rapists get a slap on the wrist while the person…

Clear-As-A-Bell: His Explanation for Non-Existent Tapes Threat

Someone more keen than I will no doubt clear this up.

“When he found out that there may be tapes out there, whether it’s governmental tapes or anything else, I think his story may have changed. I mean, you’ll have to take a look at that, because then he has to tell what actually took place at…

There's Something Inherently Wrong

There is something inherently wrong with a political process and system that requires a person to spend more money to get elected than he/she could possibly earn as compensation for holding the position to which he /she is elected.



There is something inherently wrong with a process or system of government that permits an elected official to leave office with more wealth than the accumulated/compounded value his/her official gross salary is worth over the period of tenure in… Continue

Swamp Thing Film Festival

At the impressionable age of 17 I left the rural town where I grew up to attend college in the big city.  There I soon learned that movies weren’t just a convenient occasion to feel up a girl and, if she turned you down, to blow into your empty Milk Duds box and make a fart noise. No, they were “films,” a form of entertainment that, when molded by a master director–an auteur–could achieve the status of art.…

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Hire Surrogate

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Hire Surrogate:  Kim Kardashian is claiming she has a condition called “placenta accreta,” which makes it dangerous for her to carry another child, so she and Kanye have now hired a surrogate to carry their third child.  If I’m correct, I believe “placenta accreta" is Italian for “why should I go through another nine months of carrying a kid when I can just pay someone to do it for me?”…

An idle, trivial, utterly non-controversial question

How many States (DC counts) have you had an address in during your lifetime and which ones?

As a later afterthought, how about foreign countries?

FOOD for THOUGHT

food for thought ... something to chew on other than this diet of hate and vitriol

Senate Republicans on Thursday released a health-care bill that would curtail federal Medicaid funding, repeal taxes on the wealthy and eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood as part of an effort to fulfill a years-long promise to undo Barack Obama’s signature…

"Nail Salon"

 

I shared this video with my older daughter who lives on the West Coast, and used to live where East Asians were in the majority.  My daughter related that she once went into a hair salon and the Asian stylist said, “You sit.  I make you not so ugly.”
