G’day, Wheelizens!

Paddy --

Hope your first day went well and that you now have a sense your new gig will actually be an improvement.

And in other news: #BTFSTTG

BBL.

Dianne Feinstein tried to drunkenly sexually assault me on 12/04/78 within hours of being sworn-in as the mayor of San Francisco.

FFS seems to have become my morning prayer.

Good morning GN and hello Fatwa -- I am sorry that you have had to carry that burden for the last 40 years -- will you soon be testifying in DC?

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

Mac -- well played on the thread gif! And thank you for the kind thoughts on the MO.

Yesterday went well. I met the boss, turned in paperwork, got my LiveScan (fingerprints) completed, then went home and started setting up my accounts, email, and went through the day’s training. I’ve got training every day this week, plus a couple of check-in video conferences with my boss. I heard from my former coworkers that the guy in the office who is completely indispensable left. Yeah, leaving was definitely the right thing to do.

Fatwa -- I shudder at the thought of what you must have experienced! I’m sure the press will be all over this, just like they were with the revelation that she had a Chinese spy in her employ for over 20 years.

Hiya, Sven and Paddy!

Yes, I was horribly traumatized by DiFi using her positional power -- and tongue -- in an inappropriate manner. It happened at Bimbo’s 365 Club on Columbus Avenue. (See, I remembered where and when it happened, so everyone has to believe me.)

I’m available to testify, so long as it includes first class travel and accommodations as well as a hefty cash per diem for me and LambiePieK. (Because I ought not be expected to run that gauntlet without my Emotional Support Bride.)

Yeah, leaving was definitely the right thing to do.

Paddy --

Very happy to read that; best wishes that the new job continues on that trajectory.

He’s not stuck in the “spam” larder, is he?

No, he’s not in the spam folder or the pending moderation folder. I saw his two posts, briefly, but when I refreshed, they were gone.

I’m loving the the critical thinking exhibition put on by the Party of Science the past several days. It comes down to:
A woman said it
I believe it
And that settles it

You’re right, Mac. It’s tough to do tit for tat when your opposition has no sense of shame and no consequences for their transgressions. The Republicans need to grow a pair and learn to fight -- but the only that welcomes a fight is Trump.

“We’re trying to set an example for the rest of the state and the rest of the country,” Mr. Blumenfield said.

Los Angeles is now one of several cities in California, including San Francisco and West Hollywood, that have banned the sale of fur.

“San Francisco’s colder, and when San Francisco banned fur sales, it was considered the compassion capital,” he said. “Then you have L.A. turning around and claiming that title back.”

The Compassion Capital? Who the fuck are these people?

I wondered what Peter Strzok had been up to lately:

“Second, while not determinative, the fact that Ford passed a polygraph administered by a former FBI agent lends credence to her claims. Polygraph exams are inadmissible in court because they are not always reliable, but the FBI and other law enforcement agencies frequently use polygraph tests to assess the credibility of witnesses and defendants.”
