Arson squads

August 8, 2018

SF Giants fans got to watch a bullpen lose a game late for 3rd straight day. Fortunately tonight it was Dodgers’ pen against the As.

And at least the SF Giants bullpen was guaranteed not to break fans’ hearts tonight.  (Team had an off-day.)

 

So Oscars are going to have a category for “Best Popular Movie.” Thereby admitting that most of their winners AREN’T popular?

Why do all the headlines about Brock Turner mention him being a Stanford swimmer. Simple and more accurate just to say “Convicted rapist loses appeal.”

Somewhere there’s got to be a pool on who at Ohio State will lose their job over the domestic abuse scandal with assistant football coach Zach Smith.   But pretty sure it’s not going to be Urban Meyer.

Because nothing, EVER, is Urban Meyer’s fault.

NY GOP Rep. Chris Collins was Trump’s first backer in Congress. Today he was arrested for insider trading. Crooks of a feather.

Chris Collins denies insider trading charges. Because hey, when you find out a major drug trial has failed, immediately try to call your son 7 times, then he sells stock right after you reach him, wouldn’t anyone call that a coincidence.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, appointed by Trump to his commission on voter fraud (which found nothing.)  is leading by 191 votes in the GOP Gubernatorial Primary.

This is close enough for an automatic recount. Such a recount would be overseen by the Secretary of State’s office.

What could possibly go wrong?

 

Elon Musk is getting so erratic on Twitter have to wonder if he’s thinking of running for President?

I miss when “Fast and Furious” referred to a series of car movies, and not criminal stories coming from the White House.

 

So Trump administration claims they will sanction Russia for using a chemical weapon in Britain earlier this year. At same time Trump approves importing Russian asbestos. #WTF?

If Trump thinks asbestos is so safe, can he please use it to insulate his hotels and Mar-A-Lago?

Just wondering, when Trump is out of office will his entire staff and Cabinet retire? Because they’re not going to be able to get jobs anywhere else.

As Ohio State investigates allegations that Urban Meyer ignored domestic violence does anyone doubt if Buckeyes were a .500 football team last year he’d have already been fired.

 

What’s all this freaking out over Batwoman being a lesbian? Apparently from people who never grew up watching Adam West & Burt Ward on TV? Those tights…

Miss those innocent days when worst we could imagine happening during a election was hanging chads.

is a good day to remind everyone again that Robert Mueller is a Republican, with a Purple Heart, and a Bronze Star.

if Stephen Miller wants to go after immigrants who have taken advantage of government assistance what about the one living with her husband in public housing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?

Voting Green Party in US right now is about as practical and smart as putting a nonrefundable deposit down on Mets playoff tickets.

 

Or maybe we’ve got it all wrong and Green Party voters aren’t voting progressive, they’re intending to vote for the color of money

 

Open note to any single liberal young person who votes for Green Party candidate because Democrat isn’t perfect enough, heaven help you if and when you decide to get married.

 

Tonight it’s too close to call in  Ohio special election on whether white voters would reject hate alone. In November, either way it’s a rematch. Let’s see if they reject upcoming factory closures, layoffs and healthcare cuts.

 

Also Doesn’t really matter what final result is in , there’s another election for the same seat in November. And the lesson is simple – VOTE. And for f*ck’s sake, vote for a candidate who can win.

Lara Trump fundraising email for her father-in-law “I find I get along better with the construction workers and the cab drivers…The people who count in the world.” -Donald J. Trump, 1989

As if Trump has been in a cab any more recently than he’s been in a grocery store.

Finally,  a new study found people who sleep more than 10 hours a night 30% more likely to die prematurely than those who sleep for 8 hours. I’m gonna live forever!
