Teh Squeaky Wheel
"I see another “bombshell” “game-changer” “pivotal moment” “changes everything” “Trump is done” moment has occurred courtesy of John Bolton. Odd, the timing of this, but there you go."
Caturday greetings from yet again overcast Happy Larryville, GN!
Maaaaan…I kilted yesterday’s thread but good. 👿
I’m glad that heavy cloud cover is the only effect we’re seeing from teh hurricane; we’ve had a few sprinkles of rain and that’s it. (Hope that SoCal gets a lot more than that this winter, but that doesn’t seem too likely as of this writing.)
Creative use of a Segway:
Hi Fatwa--glad that you are only getting a bit of rain. And yeah: they ain’t forecasting heavy rains out here this winter.
The Donald Trump guide to getting laid:
1. Have a lot of money
2. Have a lot of money
3. Have a lot of money
Just when you thought this election cycle couldn’t get worse…
JFK was a philanderer, LBJ was a horndog, Fat Teddy was (at minimum), a drunken mansalughterer who made waitress sammiches with a fellow Senator, Bill Clinton’s almost certainly a serial rapist, but Trump referred to women crudely just like tens of millions of American men have done at some point in their lives!!1!

Just occurred to me: Sven’s pretty virtuous, being up so early on a Saturday morning. 😉
“Virtue” is my middle name.
I think Trump, for the first time I can recall, actually put out a decent statement in response to this latest oops incident. If he had acted like this months ago, I might have supported him. As it is now, he’s in a barrel of hot water and playing defense once again.
He’s just not a good candidate.
I am sure that when Pelicano or some other thug hired by Hillary was threatening to kill the kids or throw acid in the face of one of Bill’s victims he used only PC and gender sensitive language and terms because she is such a supporter of women.
Of course they did, Mac. Threatening someone is one thing; using racist, sexist, or homophobic language tho is entirely different, and nowadays, considerably worse.
We’ve apparently reached a point where thoughts and words are held to a higher standard than actual actions.
These are the words and attitude from Trump last night that he should have adopted at the Republican convention:
“I have traveled the country talking about change for America, but my travels have also changed me. I’ve spent time with grieving mothers who’ve lost their children, laid-off workers whose jobs have gone to other countries, and people from all walks of life who just want a better future. I have gotten to know the great people of our country and I’ve been humbled by the faith they’ve placed in me.”
FOX News had on a couple of people last hour talking about the latest Trump scandal. The leftie was a woman named something Clifton and she literally began sobbing when talking about the Trump video and how it demeaned women everywhere.
It was absurd, but also amusing. I imagine the same woman had a different reaction when listening to the Planned Parenthood executives sipping wine and talking about the best way to dismember an unborn child so as to maximize the fees for body parts. If she even watched or listened at all.
Aos had this up: “The glee with which the Republican elite is criticizing Trump for his latest faux pas is worse than his crass speech. Trump is a buffoon, but the inside-the-beltway mandarins are scum.” Could not agree more.
Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning/afternoon, Fatwa, Sven Virtue Bonk, and Mac!
Mrs. Paddy and I went to a fundraiser for a local foundation that her pastor is involved with that is building and supporting a grades 6-12 school in Tanzania. A group from her church went there last summer to work on a new science lab. Anyway, they had a silent auction and we were high bidder on a pair of tickets to a concert next weekend. The Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, The Who, Neil Young -- a three-day concert at the site of the Coachella Music Festival. The name of the concert is Desert Trip, but everyone is calling it Old’Chella. We’re pretty excited about it. Not as excited as we are about a Trump or Hillary! presidency, but pretty excited nonetheless.
Congratulations, Paddy! Tickets for that thing are YUUUUGE!
I looked up the prices last night and can’t believe we got them so cheap! Now we just have to figure out lodging, etc. I really don’t feel like tent camping in a 10′ x 15′ space.
Start watching at about the 40 second mark.
Remember, womyn are stronger than men, and don’t your dare bring up their emotional nature, you misogynist!
Congratters, Paddy! Hope you can find some reasonably-priced lodgings fairly close by.
Criminy…I’m at the point where I’d like to see nearly the entire existing political and media establishment fed into wood chippers.
