Teh Squeaky Wheel
Cartoon O grabbin’!
That was my favorite cartoon, too. I just heard on the local news that the cop was 60 years old. LOL. He had been a motorcycle cop most of the time & just recently changed assignments.
BW left a little while to go back to work. I told her that if it is too much, just come home. I think she will be okay, she just has utterly no interest in playing the BS that goes on there. She had over 600 emails to go through. She started on some of them last night, but didn’t get through them. I told her to just tell her boss that she had to get through those emails & couldn’t do any other work today! She won’t, though, another supervisor is on maternity leave & they are shorthanded. Plus it is time to start her salary appraisals.
Yesterday, she wanted me to go with her to “drive around the block”. I invented a trip to the post office to make the drive longer. She was concerned because she hasn’t driven in over a month. She did just fine. I told her that worrying about stuff is worse that the actually thing, but this is a lifelong habit that isn’t going to change.
I’ve already mopped the floors this morning & I’ve got more housework to do.
See ya later.
Garbage Day greetings from Trashy Happy Larryville, GN!
Hai, mopping RabBeet!
Yer a good gerbil; hope BW’s first day back at work goes as well as it possibly can.
That was a funny Tweet re the jihadi fail; also a bit ironic that their actions sort of proved Pam Geller’s (of whom I am not a fan) point. Which may be why CAIR toned-down their usual rhetoric yesterday.
I’m debating the merits of pre-kilting today’s thread. 😉
Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, RabBiT, Fatwa, and Kilted-Mac!
RabBiT -- I hope BW’s day goes well. Let her know you are both in our prayers.
Speaking of proving someone’s point, the other day a friend, Jen, shared someone’s post on Facebook that included an opinion from Tammy Bruce about the current state of the LGBT movement. It included the opinion that the LGBT movement had turned into the ‘Gay Gestapo’, demanding conformity of belief. Jen thought it was an interesting post and specifically tagged a few people, myself included, for their thoughts. Having learned a few things over the years, I kept my mouth shut and my fingers off the keyboard. A conservative man, Brett, posted that he thought Ms. Bruce’s commentary was spot on. Businesses should have the freedom to serve whom they want and customers should have the freedom to deny patronage to bigoted businesses. That brought out the comparisons to the 1960’s bus boycotts from my radical leftist, lesbian, former choir director, Eliza. Things remained civil for a while, until Jen posted that she found the discussion interesting. At that point Eliza’s sometime partner, Julie, jumped all over Jen for daring to find anything that Brett or Tammy Bruce had to say ‘interesting’. Eliza piled on and Jen was roundly castigated for posting something with the term ‘Gay Gestapo’ in it, Brett was called a clueless bigot, and Jen’s protestations that she had never expressed an opinion, has many friends in the LGBT community, and is a big supporter of LGBT rights only brought down greater rath. The Gay Gestapo had claimed another victim. I LOL’d.
Hai, MacKilt -- who gets a “heh!” -- and Paddy!
I love the term “Gaystapo”…because it’s sneering and fairly accurate.
“You vill toe ze politische line most carefully…or else; no unapproved zinking vill be tolerated!”

What’s sad is that I’m absolutely sure that no one realized that they were perfectly illustrating the point that Tammy Bruce was making.
But…but…but that’s un-possible; those people are our moral and intellectual betters!
So they keep telling us.
After a sufficient number of repetitions, it becomes true…because magical thinking.
God bless you and BW, Rabbit. It will take some time for her to feel somewhat normal again, but it will happen.
The left tolerates little dissent, Paddy. Toe the company line or else.
It’s interesting how the thwarted attack in Texas has so quickly been left behind by the media. Well, except to blame Pam Geller.
In the olden days, it would have been forgotten after a hearty “good job” followed by several more “good shooting” comments. And then maybe a parade for the officer that fired the shots. Today, it is forgotten because it raises uncomfortable questions for the media and the left. Not to repeat myself…
Me? I’m pretty proud of us for stopping this attack and killing both of the would-be murders.
Oh yeah, almost forgot: Happy Cinco de quattro!
