G’day, GN!

Maaaaaan…Mac’s clearly been scouring teh intertoobz for thread GIFs; bravo.

That church in Cleveland Heights where Trump will be appearing tomorrow was a conservative synagogue when I was a yout’. Played a couple of jazz quartet gigs there for temple functions and had to load-in through the kitchen, which I thought was kind of funny.

“Hey…Ludwig is a German name; is that drum kit kosher?” (No, we weren’t actually asked that, but it wouldn’t have surprised me.)

I can still recall the distinctive odor of that kitchen; probably lye, which was often used to kosher kitchens. (Or perhaps they were running a side business making lutefisk for a local Lutheran church from whitefish which didn’t get made into gefilte fish…)

We were asked to wear yarmulkes; I had to cadge a bobby pin to keep mine affixed to my oy-fro. I’m also amused that the formerly kosher kitchen is now likely used to prepare ribs and pulled pork. 😉

How goes the War on Narratives today, America?

Mornin’, Sven!

Cutting remarks, scattershot accusations, bullet points and verbal bomb-throwing are all weapons in the War on Narratives.

As such, they should be tightly regulated.

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

I don’t see the problem with ribs -- didn’t G_d prepare a dish from a long-pig rib?

It’s hot and humid out, and looks like rain, but we probably won’t get any. I blame Gov. Moonbeam.

Shouldn’t those who use the tools of war be background checked? Trained? Registered? Licensed? Shouldn’t they have to undergo a waiting period before gaining access to a new platform? Surely the founding fathers did not envision everyone having access to instant words of mass destruction!

Heya, Paddy!

I’m more worried about things like assault invective bans.

Not to mention the growing list of words which are considered so dangerous that they must not be uttered.

And the concepts that our moral and intellectual betters consider to be “wrongthink”…like “liberty”.

Hiya, Mac!

“Fatwad”…har!

I do believe there are a few images you decide not to use. ‘Cause you’re a gentleman as contrasted with the likes of me!

(Sometimes I really don’t know how SackO’SugarK puts up with moi. But she does.)

I see that Obama is going all in for Hillary and is going to be campaigning furiously for her. Just like he did in 2009 when he attempted to being the 2016 Olympics to Chicago--how’d that work out for you, pal?
