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."
Happy “Evil Kitteh Saturday”, Wheelizens!
Thanks to yesterday’s thread, I’m still pondering obtaining a tub of onion dip and attacking it with a spoon. (Perhaps I’ll just fry-up the 1-lb. container of chorizo in the fridge and make some eggs. I’ve found that if I load-up on protein and fats in the morning, I can easily go until very late afternoon or even evening without craving carbs.)
First world problems. 🙂
I wish someone in DC would leak the much-touted FISA memo. Unfortunately, there are apparently zero patriots in that shithole of a city; they’re more concerned about “party” and/or “power”.
Damn the lot of them to hell.
LEAK. THE. MEMO.
Goodness…it’s been nearly ten hours since the gummint shutdown and I can’t see a single angry mob in our neighborhood.
I R disappoint. 👿
I skimmed the top-of-the-fold story in my local paper on the shutdown (courtesy of the AP) and there was more talk about embarrassment for the President, than blame for the Democrats. It’s almost like they were trying to create a narrative, rather than report the news.
I also noticed the complete embargo of the March for Life in the paper. Well, there are only so many stories you can print on any given day…
Happy TPCaturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!
I got yer green dip right here!
The media creating a narrative, you say? That’s unpossible!
Despite the “shutdown”, still not a single sign of lawlessness, anarchy, homes being swallowed by sinkholes, cadavers littering the streets, packs of rabid wolves, marauding chimanzees, rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers or Methodists around CasaK
Oh, wait…there are some shit-kickers and Methodists. Nevertheless…
Rumors of federal government workers in ATL clubbing squirrels to death for food.
The end of net neutrality, tax reform, and now this. How will we survive?
Hardly surprising: California Democrats want businesses to give half their tax-cut savings to state
“A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D-Sacramento, and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle-class families.”
Looking at some of the protest footage from across the country today, I’ve decided that those marchers are just people that don’t like NASCAR or the NFL. Protesting gives them an excuse to dress up in their team’s colors, get together with other fans, and sing their team’s fight song.
A surcharge on companies making more than a million dollars? Even if that’s net, it ain’t that much money in 2018 CA; they’re out of their greedy freakin’ minds.
BTW, it just occurred to me: How can the republic possibly survive without a functional Federal Maritime Commission or Department of Education??!?!?
Hearing that starving federal workers in DC are resorting to cannibalism.
ALERT — ALERT — ALERT
The federal government has shut down. Please use the comment thread on this post to report all instances of rioting in the streets, highway robbery, rise of warlords, cannibalism, human sacrifice, and instances of non-essential employees reporting to work that you observe today.
I’m sorry that your Commentariat friends will be unable to rescue you if you are besieged in your house by zombie hordes. We will all be dealing with survival issues of our own.
I plan to make it through the week on lentils. Beyond that, I may have to eat the cat. Raw, because of course there will be no fuel supplies to enable cooking her.
“With the fall of the government, citizen activists took it upon themselves to chronicle the culture of lawlessness. Men played Gibson guitars made of wood imported from India, but not finished by Indian workers. Women bought cold medicine without a photo ID. Children went hours without hearing lectures about the environment.”
