  • Twitter Blocks Candidate’s Mention of “Aborted Baby Parts” [semi-satire]

    A tweet from Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) that mentioned Planned Parenthood’s sales of aborted baby parts led to Twitter blocking a campaign ad in her bid for a US Senate seat in her state. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey labeled Blackburn’s tweet “inflammatory and likely to evoke a strong negative reaction. On the one hand, there’s the woman who already has to deal with the emotionally difficult decision to terminate her pregnancy. Awareness that her baby might be cannibalized and sold for parts like a junked car would add unnecessary trauma to that decision.” “On the other hand, there is potential...

    “I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards.” – Hillary Clinton, explaining broken toe. This brings to mind three things Hillary has still not learned: 1. Coffee, coffee, coffee. Then try the challenging issues of your day. It’s safer that way. 2. People who spend a lot of time looking backwards find very few answers but discover a lot of excuses. 3. If you keep peering into the rearview mirror you may see messages that you do not...

    Is it just me, or does it seem like everybody – and I do mean everybody – who has done something to screw up their life in any way, shape or form has taken to blaming President Trump as a coping mechanism for their own failures? Think about it. Take Harvey Weinstein as an example – what was this repugnant tub of goo’s first instinct when the NYTimes published its expose’ on his quarter century of abusing women? If you remember, he thought he could innoculate himself from any fallout from his 100% leftwing Hollywood peers by taking a leave...

    This week, former US President Jimmy Carter offered himself to North Korea’s communist government to “act as a human shield against an attack by the Trump Administration” contending that “even a madman like Trump would surely pull back if he knew an innocent American’s life was at stake.” Fortunately for the ex-president, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un rebuffed the offer. “Our might is supreme,” Kim boasted. “We have no need for shields—human or otherwise. Mr. Carter, like all of my enemies, will die at a time and place of my choosing. Even those who to attempt to hide like my...

    Speaking of Harvey Weinstein, it appears to me that the nation reached “Peak Weinstein” over this past weekend. The clearest indicator of that reality is the edict in pop culture that you cannot joke about Harvey Weinstein and his crimes. Un-funny late night TV host James Corden, with whom I am so unfamliar that I had to google his name to get the spelling right, found this out the hard way when he was lambasted in social media and later, the legacy media for telling a bunch of not funny Weinstein jokes during a gig hosting a charity event Saturday...

    Former presidential candidate and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean criticized the Trump Administration’s handling of post-hurricane relief efforts for the island of Puerto Rico. While the federal government has delivered massive amounts of supplies to the island it has not been uniformly successful in getting them distributed to those in need. Part of the hang-up has been local politicians laying claim to supplies. Another part has been unions seeking higher pay for transporting the supplies locally. Dean’s proposed solution: “let the Clinton Foundation take over from here. They have the know how and a demonstrated history of success. When...

    The Obama Presidential Library revealed that it won’t be providing any original documents written by Obama. Instead of having the former president’s manuscripts, documents and letters from his tenure in office—items presidential centers around the country all have—the Obama Library will have space for outdoor functions and picnics, a basketball court, recording studio, sledding hill, children’s play garden, and more. The decision has scholars puzzled and disappointed. University of Chicago Professor of Black Studies Richard Buttkiss could hardly contain his dismay that “the written words of the greatest man to ever walk the Earth will not be available for historians...

His conclusion: some people are worse but other people are worser. 'How about the guy in office?... whose (sic) also an abuser,' Reiner said.

    And what a success this effort to erase the Obama legacy from our midst has been thus far. With the reversal of literally thousands of terrible, economy-killing regulations and dozens of patently illegal executive orders, Trump’s administration has demonstrated that the Obama “legacy” was almost entirely built on a foundation of matchsticks that would go up in flames with the election of any president who actually cares about the country. While the fake news media has done its best to ignore it, President Trump’s reversals of Obama’s failed legacy have also extended to the War on Terror, and the destruction...

    This week President Trump made some administrative revisions to the Affordable Care Act health insurance program. Using latitude granted to the president in the original legislation, Trump issued an executive action that allows individuals more choices in how to insure themselves. This expansion of choice was denounced by key Democrats. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) called Trump's move "a stab in the back. Allowing people more choices is the exact opposite of what is needed if the changes made by Obamacare are to be made permanent. People will choose selfishly. They will only buy coverage they think they need....

Instead I’ll watch the chlorophyll challenged trees transitioning to their winter state,rocks migrating out to sea,and rivers flowing slowly but inevitably into Lake Michigan.  Maybe I’ll photograph some of the famous barns of Grand Traverse county.Mostly I’ll just let the world go about it’s business without my participation.

  • Trump Needs to Re-Brand "Obamacare" With Some Killer Nickname That Really Fits.

    Vanity | 10/13/2017 | self
    Crooked Hillary, Low-Energy Jeb, Very Fake News - we've all seen Trump masterfully take down his opponents by re-branding them with names like these. And yet for some reason, as it relates to one of his major campaign promises, he has not yet used this effective tool against the label of "Obamacare" - which arguably serves the purposes of the left by associating "caring" with not only that horrific law, but with all things "Obama". So I propose that Trump and folks on the right start calling this law some other fitting name. Here are a few of my own...

    When shooting Tannerite becomes a game of dodgeball with mother nature. A day on the range turned into an impromptu game of dodgeball with mother nature after a Tannerite explosion sends a large rock flying directly at the shooter. It’s hard to tell from the video, but the Tannerite seems like far away to be at a safe distance. After making the shot, the shooter and his cameraman notice a dark shape approaching them at a pretty good speed. He soon realizes the shape is actually a rock about the size of his head. Dodgeball! See the tannerite dodgeball video...

    This Weinstein deal should remind every thinking American in the 98% of the country that lies outside of the major media centers that there is an organized effort to have California secede from the United States, commonly referred to as “CalExit”. The Sacramento Bee carried a story about this effort yesterday, in which backers of this secession effort say they believe they have an easier path to taking their state out of the union than the Catalonians have to separate their region from Spain. “There are definitely similarities in the fiscal situation – we both give more than we get...

    Hillary Clinton, in a predictably softball interview on CNN Wednesday, told fake journalist Fareed Zakaria that she was “sick” and “appalled” to hear about her “friend” Harvey Weinstein’s behavior towards women. This is truly hard to believe. The Clintons have been paling around with the big Hollywood muckety-muck for more than 20 years. He’s held fundraisers for both of them, personally given to their campaigns, bundled hundreds of thousands of dollars to their campaigns, and given as much as a quarter million dollars to the Clinton Crime Family fake Foundation. The thought that the Clintons had no idea about the...
