From the “All That Winning Department”…

Hey, Donald Trump! You just killed the most wanted terrorist in the Middle East! What are you going to do now?

“I’m going to the World Series!”

You heard what happened then, right?

If he wasn’t one of the biggest scumbags on the planet, I might feel a wee bit sorry for him.

But he is, so I don’t.

Melania seemed like she was having a good time, though.

“Lock him up. Lock him up.”

Batter up!

Help me go “Over The Edge”!

Alternating Currents

IMG_8417

Last November I went “Over The Edge”, from the 8th floor of the Marriott Hotel in Visalia. It was a fund raising event for The Source LGBT+ Center of Tulare and Kings Counties.

The crew at The Source had so much fun “throwing the 9-1-1 dispatcher off the roof” that they want to do it again, and I’m game. There’s only one problem, though.

We have to raise $1,000 to do it.

I’m at $790 at the moment, and it’s down to three weeks before the event, November 9, 2019.

I need YOUR help!

Please go >> here << and donate on my account! Small or large, every donation helps, and they’re tax deductible. You can also donate through Facebook, at this link.

The Source LGBT+ Center (Facebook page here) is an important resource for the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender communities here in Tulare and Kings…

AR-15 (2) One thing you can count on, in the battle to get assault weapons off the streets of America, gun owners, specifically those who own (or wished they owned) the AR-15 will fight to the death… to make sure you know AR *doesn’t* mean ‘assault rifle’.

Now, they have a point. AR stands for the original manufacturer from back in the 50’s, Armalite Rifle. This fixation, however, on what the AR stands for is a bit disingenuous, given their penchant for screaming “CONFISCATION!!!!” any time anyone proposes a restriction or buy-back plan.

The Colt AR-15 is an assault rifle, though. Who says so? Colt says so, that’s who.

snidely-whiplash Oh that Trump administration…

“Hmmmm…  we’ve been unable to nail Hillary on anything! ANYTHING! Curses, foiled again!”

*lightbulb*

“I know! We’ll retroactively classify material that was sent in routine State Department and government emails, and start harassing people about having classified information on their computers!!!  Bwahahahahaha!”

Stunned career official (SCO): “But how does that make sense? Why would we do that? How does that become Hillary’s fault??”

Trump appointee (TA): “Because these emails ended up with her, so anyone who sent them is guilty, too! Since she had classified material on unsecured computers, SHE’S GUILTY! AND SO ARE THEY! Bwahahahahaha!!”

SCO: “That makes no sense! You can’t retroactively classify materials that were unclassified, then harass people about them!”

TA: “Watch us.”

Fox News: NEWSFLASH!  Classified emails! Hillary! Benghazi!

MAGAts: “SEE!!! WE TOLD YOU!!! LOCK HER UP!!!!!!!!!!”

Trump: “NO COLLUSION, TOTAL EXONERATION, WITCH HUNT, BIDEN!”

Everybody else: “WTF?”

Vladimir Putin: “Bwahahahahaha”

It’s pretty bad when the Taliban contradict you.

Breaking U.S. policy, Trump was set to meet with Taliban terrorist group at Camp David

This is a bad holo-novel, isn’t it, Number One?

The stupid continues to flow from this White House. On Saturday, September 7, 2019, President Donald J. Trump tweeted the following:

trumptaliban09072019

The official policy of the United States has, for decades, been that we do not negotiate with terrorists. Now, we have negotiated with terrorists before, on the down-low, but never at the level of the Presidency, and never at such a respected historical site.

Idiot-in-Chief was going to bring Taliban terrorist leaders to Camp David! This is not Israel-Egypt, and Trump is no Jimmy Carter.

On top of all of that, Trump was going to have the Taliban at Camp David a couple of days before 9/11! The optics of that are just incredibly bad. Did no one at the White House even consider that?

So who was our point man on this? Why am I suspecting it was Jared? After all, isn’t he in charge of all of these peace plan things?

Idiots. All of them. Led by the biggest one of all.

States rights (federalism), except for California.

In their 2016 platform, the Republican party says “Federalism is a cornerstone of our constitutional system. Every violation of state sovereignty by federal officials is not merely a transgression of one unit of government against another; it is an assault on the liberties of individual Americans.” 

My, how times change. More

The effect is only one way…

NUNES_DERP_STATE I’m on Devin Nunes’ email list, and boy, is it a roller coaster ride!

Here’s part of the latest blast:

“Jim,

Breaking: Big tech giants may be manipulating information to sway votes.

This is a disturbing discovery, and it should concern all Americans.

Tech oligarchs have become a huge part of our daily lives. They control what information we see and what we don’t. They have incredible power and could use this power to manipulate elections and voters.

This should give every American great concern. Conservatives must fight back.

Research has shown that Silicon Valley tech oligarchs supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election and could have biased their platform users in favor of their personal politics.
If we want to ensure a fair election in 2020, then we MUST fight back now.”

Amazing.

Nunes wants us to believe two contradictory things at one time –

That Facebook, Twitter, and similar tech giants could manipulate their customers in favor of Hillary Clinton, but that Russia’s concerted efforts to do the exact same thing on the exact same platforms did not influence anyone to favor Donald Trump.

Manipulation in favor of Clinton: YES

Manipulation in favor of Trump: NYET

“… may be manipulating…” and “They… could use this power…” and “could have biased their platform…”

He doesn’t claim they DID do that, but only that they COULD have, and that they should be investigated.

Meanwhile, Devin is suing a Twitter cow. He’s also trying to use federal racketeering laws to go after people who have said “mean” things about him. Like he’s not really a “farmer”, even though he got a court to rule he could claim that on voting pamphlets. (He recently bought a $15,000 farm, presumably so he could claim to be a farmer for real)

Derp state, is right. Devin is the Speaker of that House.

The begging bytes

1 Comment

deleteBoy, do I get emails! I’ve managed to end up on just about every candidate’s begging list, and it seems to be getting worse every day.

Now, I don’t mind the emails, they’re easy enough to delete. I find the ones from Devin Nunes and Donald Trump endlessly entertaining. I have noticed a theme, though, from all sides, that I find annoying.

They’re all “falling short of their fundraising goal this week (or month)”, and need my immediate donation to reach it. It’s important, they’ll say, that they show how strong the support for their campaign is (I’m assuming they mean for the big, high-dollar donors, the ones they never mention by name).

They’ll go on about how important it is that they reach their goal, so they don’t fall behind in their battle to save the country.

Here’s an idea, folks. Set more realistic goals, if you’re never reaching them. I know you want to give the impression of being the underdog, that you’re the come-from-behind-anti-establishment-only-hope-for-all-mankind who will win in the end… but geez!

Let me give you some free advice.

Don’t run with this “we’re behind” theme in your ads. You’re claiming you’re a loser. Start setting lower goals, and then blow past them! Tell your supporters you’re gaining support across the country. Let them join the bandwagon of a winner! Everybody loves the underdog who comes from behind to win at the last moment, but you can’t *all* be the underdog.

Other email annoyances from the political mob:

Kamala, I *really* don’t need three or four emails *every* single day!

Devin, this “it’s me against the deep state” crap is getting old. Nobody but a few hard-core Republicans really believes it. Also, hold some real town halls in your district. The only places you show your face these days is “pay-for-play” fundraisers, usually in some distant district! Locking the doors to your offices is a clear sign of what you think about your constituents.

Donald, you and Donny Jr. can quite lying to me in every other email.  I am 99.99999999% sure neither of you has noticed my name is not on your contributor’s list. If you have, how about sending me a short video of you in the Oval saying “why hasn’t Jim Reeves donated yet?” You have my email address.

So I scan the emails, and hit “delete”. The bits and bytes are recycled, to live again in some other form. Probably another email begging for money.
