Streaks…

December 12, 2019

SNY Jets have lost their 4th game of 2019 by at least 20 points. Anyone know what the record is? It’s good to have goals.

Was about to post about San Antonio Spurs needing to make their damn free throws to help keep Gregg Popovich’s playoff streak alive… and then saw David Stern brain hemorrhage news. Ouch. It IS just a game.

Gym Jordan is trying so hard to protect Trump wonder if he thinks Donald used to be a college sports doctor?

Mike Huckabee is talking about Trump running again in 2024. Well, if SCOTUS does somehow overturn 22nd amendment, it might well be a landslide third term victory, for Barack Obama.

A Minnesota woman is suing after a pharmacist refused to fill her prescription for a morning after pill, citing religious beliefs. Well, I hope that pharmacist also refuses to fill ED prescriptions unless men show up with women they can prove are their wives.

Greta Thunberg’s views are more extreme than mine. But she has mad social media skills. After @realdonaldTrump tweeted “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”
@GretaThunberg changed her Twitter bio.
“A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”

 

Billionaire TV ad of the night “Mike Bloomberg’s never been afraid of tough fights.” Well, except the tough fight that would have required daily slog retail campaigning for most of the last year.

Leaving aside Matt Gaetz’s own DUI as he attacks Hunter Biden for cocaine use, would can we ask members of Congress, under oath, if THEY have ever used any illegal drugs?

Not a Jeremy Corbyn fan, but results tonight indicate Boris Johnson has probably won as Prime Minister, & will likely lose Wales, Scotland AND Northern Ireland from UK. Most of us Democrats in US may have to vote for 2nd or 3rd choice. But #VoteBlueNoMatterWho2020 It matters.

Trump says this is “impeachment light.” Uh, this is “impeachment light,” like Donald is 239 pounds.

House Judiciary Committee postponed a vote late Thursday on articles of impeachment against Trump. Well, and shouldn’t this of all votes happen on Friday the 13th?

The way the ping pong ball may bounce?

Who’d a thunk the Knicks and Warriors would be playing in December 2019 in a battle for both teams with lottery seeding implications?

University of Phoenix has agreed to a $191 million settlement, including $141 million in loan forgiveness, with FTC over deceptive advertising,
Gosh, to make up all that $$$ University of Phoenix will have to schedule a lot of football games against SEC teams.

 

Hey SF Giants, I  know it’s a rebuilding time, But, hey ,the stadium is paid off, and you could recapture a lot of goodwill from skeptical and disappointed fans JUST by keeping Madison Bumgarner. Signed, the Lunatic and not-so-Lunatic fringe. #ForeverGiant

WTF NY Times? “If the President continues his latest line of attack, Wray will have to decide how to lead the agency while his boss promulgates the inaccurate conclusion that the FBI plotted to sabotage Trump’s Presidential campaign in 2016.”
Uh, “promulgates the inaccurate conclusion?” How about simply “lies about the FBI?

The Oakland City Council President has floated the idea to use a cruise ship to house up to 1,000 of the city’s homeless population.     Many hurdles remain, including, would people prefer the streets to a Carnival Cruise ship?

From Cory Booker fundraising email. All other (non-billionaire) Democratic candidates so far in the Presidential primaries have spent less than $30 million on ads.
Tom Steyer has spent over $79 million on ads so far.
Michael Bloomberg has spent almost $100 million.

Yet another reason Democrats need to win Congress. Election finance reform.

So what price did Lindsey Graham get for his soul?

As upset as Trump was to lose “Person of the Year” to Greta Thunberg, imagine if he had lost to one of the other finalists… Nancy Pelosi.

DIANNE FEINSTEIN: Your investigation also uncovered text messages between FBI employees expressing support for Trump, correct?
HOROWITZ: Yes
FEINSTEIN: So FBI employees held personal political views that were both favorable & unfavorable toward the candidate at that time?
HOROWITZ. Correct

Women cut through the bullsh*t.

 

Rudy Giuliani has reached a divorce settlement with third wife, Judith Nathan. So guess what, ladies? He’s single.
