Good morning and I wonder if kangaroos make good pets?

Hai, Sven!

That’s quite a mob (the actual term) of kangaroos.

I was unsurprised to read earlier that Cleveland’s really not very well prepared for the GOP convention. The electorate keeps voting for bumbling incompetents who generally hire / appoint inept stooges.

It was a damned stupid choice of cities for the RNC; even moreso now that Drumpf is the presumptive nominee.

I’m afraid Cleveland’s not going to get the kind of civic PR they’re hoping for.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven, and Fatwa!

Cleveland’s really not very well prepared for the GOP convention.

Maybe the could put the word out that they changed the location to Cincinnati?

Hai, Paddy!

Cinci would have been a somewhat better choice for the RNC, IMHO.

If I were moar cynical, I’d opine the RNC picked Cleveland because it almost guarantees there will be trouble in the streets. And why the RNC might want that as a background to their convention.

She seems nice:

One of the sitting members on the Homeland Security Advisory Council’s (HSAC) Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism is a 25-year-old immigrant of Syrian heritage who said that the 9/11 attacks “changed the world for good” and has consistently disparaged America, free speech and white people on social media.

Laila Alawa was one of just 15 people tapped to serve on the newly-formed HSAC Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism in 2015 — the same year she became an American citizen. Just last week, the subcommittee submitted a report to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, recommending that the DHS avoid using Muslim terminology like the words “sharia” and “jihad” when discussing terrorism.

Alawa says she immigrated into the U.S. when she was ten years old. Her family had already left Syria by the time she was born. “But I will always be Syrian. I will always be from Syria. I will always be of Syria,” she wrote in November 2015, calling the country her “homeland.”

Even worse stuff at teh link.

I’ve been listening to CSPAN throughout the day as the Dems in the Senate go on and on about closing the terrorist “loophole”. What strikes me is that the Republicans arent even participating--not a single one standing up for the Constitution or refuting the lies being spewed out about how easy it is to buy a gun. F*ck them too.

I’m also wondering if Mateen had hit a Catholic church on a Sunday morning instead of a gay club, if all these politicians would then proudly proclaim that we are all Christians now and would parade around with crucifixes to show their support.
