And then there were 10?

June 30, 2022

USC &, UCLA planning move from Pac-12 to Big Ten in 2024.

As Stanford fan,can I respectfully suggest to fans of Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, Purdue, MSU & even OSU you beat the crap out of Trojans & Bruins regularly. We’ll share w/ you all our best insults.

CNN is reporting the Stanley Cup was accidentally delivered to the wrong address?!! Was Louis DeJoy somehow involved?


Misery loves company alert as 2022 SF Giants have lost a LOT of 1 run games, and had two walk-off losses vs Atlanta Braves last week,

Minnesota Twins blew lead in 6th inning or later in each of 3 losses in 5 game series vs Cleveland Guardians. Who do the Twins think they are, the Timberwolves?

There’s no such thing as a free lunch. And there’s certainly no such thing as “free legal services” paid for by supporters of a twice impeached former President.

Increasingly obvious that Cassidy Hutchinson was one of the witnesses Velveeta Voldemort tried to intimidate. Now the question, how many has he successfully intimidated?

Velveeta Voldemort fundraising email subject line: “My team has been trying to reach you.” In light of Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony and Liz Cheney’s witness tampering quotes, this line has a slightly more chilling read on it.

As Texas AG Ken Paxton indicates he may use sodomy laws against gay rights I am reminded of one of my favorite Molly Ivins stories. When Texas passed their 1993 law, and the bill’s sponsor & an ally shook hands Moll wrote “Whereupon, the Speaker had to send the sergeant-at-arms over to reprimand them both,, because under the new law, ‘it’s illegal for a pr*ck to touch an a**hole in the state.’

Needs to keep being said, while many headlines now justifiably about SCOTUS overturning Roe V. Wade, so-called “pro-life” GOP is keeping Senate from passing laws to cap insulin prices & to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices. GOP doesn’t care about our lives. Democrats do.

While we disagree on many issues, I really respect Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney for standing up for democracy on the January 6 committee. But if Adam and Liz really care about democracy, it wouldn’t be abandoning their conservative views to get behind the Voting Rights Act.

As Velveeta Voldemort turns his attention to trashing Cassidy Hutchinson, your reminder, all these witnesses he dismisses as liars and says he hardly knew them, are people HE HIMSELF or his handpicked disciples hired.

AMD has reportedly faced major data breach, in part due to employees’ purported use of passwords like “password” and “123456.” Wonder what the average education level of the offenders is… And we wonder sometimes how Americans can make such stupid voting choices.

AG Ken Paxton may use sodomy laws against gay rights. In 1993 when Texas passed law, bill’s sponsor & an ally shook hands. Molly Ivins -“Speaker had to send sergeant-at-arms over to reprimand both, because under new law, “it’s illegal for a prick to touch an asshole” in Texas.

In 2021, about 42,000 people in US died in motor vehicle crashes, average of 102 per day. In 2020, over 45,222 people died from gun-related injuries in U.S, about 125 a day. Now, in mid 2022 COVID deaths back around 400 a day. But yeah, pandemic is over, nothing to see here.”

Name tags?

San Antonio Spurs, who made the play-in game, but lost to the New Orleans Pelicans, just traded their only All-Star, Dejounte Murray, for draft picks.

Well, yeah it’s a major rebuild. So guess this means Gregg Popovich, 73, is planning to be the first NBA head coach to win a title at 80?

Freddie Freeman fired his agent, reportedly for not being honest in his off-season dealings with the Braves, where Freddie hoped to re-sign.

Freeman ended up with the Dodgers and is having a good year.. But might be first time an agent was fired for negotiating a six-year $162 million contract.

US anti-choice groups & GOP-led state legislatures trying to stop women living where abortion is banned from seeking one elsewhere. But if life begins at conception, do bachelorette parties for red state women in blue states need to make sure souvenir list includes Plan B?

Memory & true confession from high school: For us Farrell’s waitresses, our duties included taking trash out. Learned great stress reliever was throwing it into dumpster, as hard as possible.

Best projectiles- EMPTY ketchup bottles. (Unlike Tr*mp, we threw into dumpster, not wall.)

Fox News hairsplitting for day. Whether or not SCOTUS judges actually lied in confirmation hearings about overturning Roe V. Wade.

Uh, even GOP Susan Collins said she was misled.

Besides while lying is bad, taking away rights from all American women of childbearing age is much worse.

Ketanji Brown Jackson officially becomes SCOTUS judge Thursday. Considering what Ketanji will have to put up with, is there a judicial equivalent of the Purple Heart, and can she be given it presumptively?

Great news that Senator Warnock has big lead in latest poll over Herschel Walker. But Georgia, don’t take ANYTHING for granted. The only poll that matters is election day. And if anyone thinks GOP is done trying to suppress votes…I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell them.

GOP blaming Biden for people trying to smuggle themselves across the border in trucks is like blaming a storeowner who strengthens locks on doors, if thieves then break windows to get into the store.

We have a labor shortage in the US. Seems to me that people desperate enough to try to get across the border in the back of an unairconditioned truck might be very motivated employees if US could fix our FUBARed immigration policy.
