Alabama Mall Banned Roy Moore in the ’80s for Pursuing Teens

Alabama Mall Banned Roy Moore in the ’80s for Pursuing Teens:  Former mall employees and local police have told the New Yorker that Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore was banned from a mall in the early 1980s for repeatedly attempting to pick up teenage girls.  In response, talk show host and Moore defender Sean Hannity told his listeners that while Moore may have been trying to pick up underage girls, at least he wasn’t trying to arrange…

No Moore

Like Leigh Korfman, I have been reluctant to address the matter of Roy Moore. Frankly, it shouldn't have been necessary to expose this particular disgusting behavior – not when his own words and deeds should have long ago condemned him to the obscurity and ignominy he so richly deserves.…

Pirogue Days

A bog, a marsh, a swamp, a fen

All of them make me smile.

They are, regardless of size,

Not for us.

 

Their owners slither and creep

Or hop or cruise with spiny fin

And watch us with beady eyes

They warm my heart.

 

But some can’t stand their insolence

And so they plot to drain the swamp

and leave those creatures high and dry.

A pile of dust and rot.

 

All a matter of use they…

I Prefer Peanuts

This post was inspired by Amy's comment on FM's

'flying squirell for arthur

post, which ostensibly matches a few of us with the characters from the "Rocky and Bullwinkle" cartoon TV show.

I prefer Peanuts because there's no question as to who I am.

Tiffany Haddish Makes SNL History

For the first time in its 43 seasons on air, SNL featured a black female stand-up comedienne to host the show, and she absolutely nailed it:

The show premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975, under the original title "NBC's Saturday Night". ----Wikipedia

To put it in perspective:

If you were 18 years old when you saw the first SNL show to…

What's the weather?

Yesterday I drove my daughter and her boyfriend over to the boyfriend's dentist. He doesn't have wheels and a while ago I said I'd to this. We come out of the dentist, it's flurrying, I get a business call on my cell, and I sit in the parking lot for about ten minutes dealing with the call. The call ends, I look up, and start driving. The snow is now in big flakes and is definitely sticking.…

Please Sir, Can I Have Moore? [update]

The Deplorables have another standout member in Roy Moore. And Bannon/Quisling think that making this country into a total United States of Alabama is a good thing. While the .1% get even richer off the "tax reform" which serves only to perpetuate the transfer of gummint moolah from Blue states to Red states. Where it will be used to support the local .1%, naturally. Schools? Hospitals? Hardly.

Well, here's the…

Happy 35th, Red

     (This is among the first things I wrote online, and still is only one of three posts

that feature The Redhead (aka "The Girl with the Sunset Hair").

I'm posting it here in honour of our 35th anniversary today.

Yes, I know, it's Armistice Day, and yes, it was deliberate.)

    Back in the spring of 1985, The Redhead and I took the only travelling vacation we have ever had.

Bodyguard Says Russian Offered to Send Trump Five Women:  President Trump's former bodyguard Keith Schiller told Congressional investigators that a Russian involved in the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, offered to send five girls to Trump's hotel room.  Somebody probably told Schiller that if you allow those women to come up to Trump’s room, it’ll mean urine trouble. …
