Upsetting?

December 20, 2017

UNC expected to be hard hit by GOP Tax Bill eliminating tax deductible donations to buy football/basketball tickets. But did anyone expect it this fast? #Wofford

Wonder how many San Franciscans who are not really sports fans are thinking “Wait, what is Eva Longoria doing with the Giants?”

Welcome to San Francisco Evan Longoria. Hoping you like SF Giants as much as you will like AT&T Park compared to Tropicana Field.  And yeah, those people in the stands you will now seee regularly are called “fans.”

 

Eva Longoria & Evan Longoria are not  related. But Eva’s a fan, and pretty sure SF Giants will be happy to get her good seats to any AT&T park games she wants to attend.

MLB commissioner Manfred on Marlins’ fire sale “This (Jeter) group has a long-term commitment to winning.” Of course, that “winning” might be in the Bronx.

Lavar Ball says he will  start basketball league where top HS prospects get paid $10k a month instead of going to college. Well, except for players at some colleges that might be a pay cut.

So when does Jacob Marley show up at Mar-A-Lago for Christmas dinner?

Rosie O’Donnell taking heat for offering Senators Flake & Collins $2 million to vote against #GOPTaxScamBill, a bribe which is a felony. Silly @Rosie, the only legal bribes for Senators have to be written into legislation.

If Mike Pence gets any more fawning with Trump the V.P.’s wife may not let him have any more dinners alone with Donald.

So GOP Tax Bill  gets passed on the 2nd shortest day of 2017.   #Itsalwaysdarkestbeforethedawn

Alabama Acting Senator Luther Strange, who voted for GOP Tax Bill is already out of office. How many more Senators & Reps will follow him in 2018?

GOP Tax bill  talks about “unborn children” as part of party’s anti-abortion strategy, but Republicans still can’t fund CHIP. So it’s “we fight for you in utero but once born you ingrates are on your own?” #WTF

At least corporate America’s PR attempts before the holidays will put some money in workers’ pockets in 2017. Easy to toss some crumbs when you’ve been gifted a BIG golden loaf.

Of course if Donald Trump were telling truth & #GOPTaxBillScam doesn’t benefit him he could easily prove it by releasing tax returns.

Chris Christie put Jared Kushner’s father in jail, Jared got Chris kicked out of Trump administration. Now Christie says Kushner deserves scrutiny in the Mueller investigation. Mean bitch karma loves symmetry

From T.C.   “Lakers retired both of Kobe’s two jersey numbers this week (#8 & #24). He then tries to convince the wife he that he never lead a double life.

A week after election,  Roy Moore still hasn’t conceded. But to be fair, it’s a really busy time at the mall.

 

There was a college football bowl game tonight. Serious points if you can name it without Google!

After two years of ZERO players named to the Pro Bowl, New Orleans Saints had six in 2017. Hope Roger Goodell doesn’t see those numbers and decide to make it a punishable offense.

 

Carolina LB Thomas Davis’s 2-game suspension for illegal helmet hit on Davante Adams reduced to 1. So he’ll only miss Tampa Bay. Translation, NFL wants people to watch Panthers-Falcons Dec 31.

After FAU’s first 10 win season ever, Lane Kiffin gets 10-year coaching contract. And if Kiffin stays successful with the Owls he’ll serve out about two years of it.

I miss the days when Colts sneaking out of town in middle of night was biggest travesty in the Baltimore-DC metropolitan area. #GOPTaxScamBill

The only truth about “job creation” in #GOPTaxScamBill is how many more jobs it will create for accountants & lawyers to exploit loopholes in this so-called simplification.

Cardinal Bernard Law, 86, former archbishop of Boston who protected pedophile priests, has died. Hope he likes really warm temperatures.

Many Democratic Senators are millionaires too. But Dems, unlike GOP, are capable of voting against their own personal self-interest to help average constituents

#SusanCollins says coverage of her tax vote is “unbelievably sexist.” Maybe because we still expect women to be more principled than men?

#GOPTaxBill will eliminate deductions for losses caused by fires, flooding & most natural disasters like tornadoes. Good thing for Trump voters those never happen in Red States.

Ben Carson in Puerto Rico, recovery is ‘better than what I had heard.” Uh, how can it be better than the 10 out of 10 your boss gave himself?

Sarah and Todd Palin may not bail their son out of jail in time for Christmas. And you think your family holidays are awkward.

Couple near LA arrested for trying to sell young sons for drugs. What kind of monsters try to sell little children? Now, teenagers many parents would give away….

As it appears increasingly likely that human error and/or reckless speeding caused yesterday’s Amtrak crash, another reminder that we have less to fear from terrorism than stupidity.

 

 

Mainstream Republicans went from hating Trump to his partners-in-crime on GOP tax bill.   Turds of a feather….
