    Trump humor

    I had to watch that until the end. Brilliant! I think Bernie got red in the face, one snowflake was crying, and some were really having a hard time not yelling or becoming violent. It's like we are one mob scene away from the violent protests of the sixties only this time it is not a protest against an ill advised war, but a protest against peace, prosperity and freedom. The neo socialists were peaceful but just one split second away from a protest of spitting, screaming, and raging. How uncivil and childish.

    I just had a crossword puzzle clue that spoke of shaving with a razor as "taboo" in Jewish law. I find the idea of cultural no no's kind of weird, especially if a forbidden but scrumptious animal like a pig is off the table. The Russians won't eat crabs. Me and Doctor Seuss would not eat a mouse. We would not eat a rat, or a cat or a dog either. And please don't eat eel in front of me. Not even with sauerkraut on it. Hey? What's in that submarine? Some people are adverse to cured mixed meats like hard salami but I love it on French bread. On the few occasions I fry Spam my wife opens a window so I only do it once or twice a year. I remember getting Spam in my Mom's care package when I was stationed in South Korea and they love spam there.

    For Valentine's Day, a little something

    Now I remember that song. It is a good comedy song and reminds me of Roger Miller.

    Donald Trump

    "Those in the know" are saying Biden is contacting his big money donors and will may a run in 2020.
  5. Sorry. I couldn't get rid of the underlines and now my computer is acting up. I ran CClean and nothing was wrong but I was slowed down for some reason. Some of those quotes sound like the "elites" who inhabit this portion of the internet. Well said Spiro, and to the intellects of Atlantis (OL)!
  6. “Nattering nabobs of negativism.” Spiro was quite a character. Peter From Wikipeida: Beginning in early 1973, Agnew was investigated by the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland on suspicion of criminal conspiracy, bribery, extortion and tax fraud. Agnew took kickbacks from contractors during his time as Baltimore County Executive and Governor of Maryland. The payments had continued into his time as vice president. On October 10, 1973, after months of maintaining his innocence, Agnew pleaded no contest to a single felony charge of tax evasion and resigned from office. Nixon replaced him with House Republican leader Gerald Ford. Agnew spent the remainder of his life quietly, rarely making public appearances. He wrote a novel and a memoir that both defended his actions. Quotes from Spiro T. Agnew. In the United States today, we have more than our share of the nattering nabobs of negativism. They have formed their own 4-H Club - the 'hopeless, hysterical hypochondriacs of history.' The student now goes to college to proclaim rather than to learn. A spirit of national masochism prevails, encouraged by an effete corps of impudent snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals. This is the criminal left that belongs not in a dormitory, but in a penitentiary. The criminal left is not a problem to be solved by the Department of Philosophy or the Department of English - it is a problem for the Department of Justice. Black or white, the criminal left is interested in power. It is not interested in promoting the renewal and reforms that make democracy work; it is interested in promoting those collisions and conflict that tear democracy apart. As for those deserters, malcontents, radicals, incendiaries, the civil and uncivil disobedients among the young, SDS, PLP, Weathermen I and Weathermen II, the revolutionary action movement, the Black United Front, Yippies, Hippies, Yahoos, Black Panthers, Lions and Tigers alike - I would swap the whole damn zoo for a single platoon of the kind of young Americans I saw in Vietnam. I am not asking for government censorship or any other kind of censorship. I am asking whether a kind of censorship already exists when the news that forty million Americans receive each night is determined by a handful of men responsible only to their corporate employers and filtered through a handful of commentators who admit to their own set of biases. Some newspapers are fit only to line the bottom of bird cages. Three things have been difficult to tame: the oceans, fools and women. We may soon be able to tame the oceans; fools and women will take a little longer. One modest suggestion for my friends in the academic community: the next time a mob of students, waving their non-negotiable demands, starts pitching bricks and rocks at the student union- just imagine they are wearing brown shirts or white sheets- and act accordingly. I apologize for lying to you. I promise I won't deceive you except in matters of this sort. Confronted with a choice, the American people would choose the policeman's truncheon over the anarchist's bomb.
  7. I just heard that the people in China "creatively go to" the official Fearless Leader's site on their phones and the internet to gain brownie points. They still fear the communist state, unfortunately. But the times they are a'changin'

    Wow. That's cool, Master of Chutzpah! I have the old and new testaments in my full name which I will not broadcast. I grew a beard when I got out of the army but it itched and had dandruff so after shampooing it a few times when I did my top hair . . . I cut it off. edit. My cat Sparks, named after the Jodie Foster character in that movie Contact? who is my, icon had to have an ear cut off because of cancer, but she is still going strong. She is now a renowned thousand dollar cat.

    Apparently the Mueller investigation is almost over and some are already apologizing about not finding any dirt on our Prez though some people who told little white lies to cover their asses may go to jail, like Manafort.

    Donald Trump

    Jokes edited from the web. If attacked by a mob of clowns, go for the juggler. Alexandria Ocasia-Cortez says on twitter, “Yes we can land on the sun. We just have to go at night.” An advisor for President Trump responded, “My little brother ate all the Scrabble tiles and his shit makes more sense than you, Cortez.” Cortez then shot back, “Wrong Sarah Huckabee. Confucius says, bread is like the sun. It rises in the east and sets in the waist. You’ve been eating too much toast, Sarah.” “Stop equivocating Cortez with your phony quotes,” said Sarah. Muy Daddy’s a preacher. Trump's inauguration prayer included a Bible passage about building a wall. The Bible says, “The nation had been in bondage for decades, the infrastructure of the country was in shambles, and God raised up a powerful leader to restore the nation. And the man God chose was neither a politician nor a priest. Instead, God chose a builder whose name was Nehemiah.” “So, the Holy Bible prophesized President Trump, Cortez!”

    Ah, the little engine who could. Where have you been, Honey? I went to the grocery store and you know what? There were a lot of Hispanic people there shopping but no Latins worked there. It was all whites, and mostly female. And they didn't look poor. They had fancy jewelry on and decent shoes. So, why were they working?

    Are halo's mythical? Do they represent something in reality?

    i'm pathetic

    Purpose. Can anyone remember the sheer joy of being a child and building a fort or a treehouse, away from all those boring adults? I remember opening my eyes and seeing the sun peek through the shades and then rushing to get outside. And I even liked going to school and work. It's still a joy. Where will we go next? Lancaster for a concert? Florida for a vacation? Retirement? It's not so bad. I wake up and lay under the covers thinking and musing, then I think about coffee. Right now I am perking a combination of Folgers Columbian, Choc full of nuts, and Starbucks and it is excellent. What's next? Toast with Smucker's Strawberry Jam?
  14. So then, few “new” dictatorships are sprouting as in Venezuela. I would not want America to “get into the business” but as Rand said, yes, it is moral to kill a dictator. Sincerely, double oh seven. Here are the answers from the New York Times Sunday puzzle dubbed “Zoospeak.” Try and think of the clue. Common caws. Baabaa shop. Coo de grace. Purr former. Moo vie star. Neigh sayer. Modern hiss story. Roar schack test. And this is not on theme but from the same puzzle. Clue: ancient mall. Answer: agora. I had to think about that but then, be-ding! I bet it was like shopping at the mall way back then.

    I don't think the Guv should resign but it may not be wise for him to continue to seek public office. Perhaps Virginia should ban Halloween and all those potentially hurtful costumes. If a person of mixed African American ancestry were to imitate Michael Jackson they might to "lighten up." Remember that episode of Seinfeld where "the little people" are intolerant of any dwarf or midget who tries to look taller? I think that sin was called, "heightening."
