That’s an unusual way of whipping cream, Mac.

First o’ November greetin’s, GN!

At 11:33 last night, NBC News’ Twitter account tweeted:

Muslim Americans again brace for backlash after New York attack

…along with this link: https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/nyc-terrorist-attack/muslim-americans-again-brace-backlash-after-new-york-attack-n816291?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma

What a disgusting propaganda organization NBC is.

Just read someone who referred to yesterday’s terror attack in NYC as “Islamic bowling”.

That’s close to being a Papa Arbuckle level of cynical tastelessness.

Yeah for California: new gasoline tax kicks in today. Another $.12 per gallon for gasoline; another $.20 per gallon for diesel.

On the plus side, the Dodgers won Game 6 last night against Houston; Game 7 tonight.

Hai, Sven!

CA might not need the extra gas taxes if they’d actually been spending them on roads instead of shoring-up / subsidizing public transit. (And, CA being CA, likely diverting some of it to pay for public employees’ pensions, too. And grifting…can’t forget the grifting.)

Happy sugar-crash Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Last year we ran out of candy, so this year we bought 50% more. We should have bought 50% less. The extra will be donated.

Ah yes, the Muslim backlash -- “Why do you people blame us every time we do something bad?”

Fatwa -- yes, in CA the gas taxes have been diverted to pay for many other things, including pensions. About $1 billion annually in truck weight fees also goes to the general budget, instead of to maintaining roads. About 30% of the new gas tax and increased vehicle license fees will go to transit, public parks, food and agricultural projects, etc.
