Teh Squeaky Wheel
Gooooood morniiiiiiiiing, GN!
Glad you were cleared for eye surgery. FWIW, LambiePieK’s recuperation from cataract surgery was very fast; wishing you the same, (of course!).
Funny that Morris Dees’ malfeasance and subsequent termination just isn’t all that newsworthy…’cause he’s one of the “good guys”, so “shhhhhhh!”.
Similarly, Ilhan Omar’s a furriner, so she really, really didn’t understand the meaning of the words she used. It’s just bad luck that stuff which sounds so similar to Joooo-hate keeps falling out of her mouth and appearing on her Twitter account.
I’m sure it’s America’s fault, because English is such a difficult language. We simply need to “invest” billions in moar ESL, haterz!
Happy Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!
Mac -- sorry about your lack-of-coffee experience, but I’m glad you were cleared to get your cataracts dealt with.
Happy Tuesday, GN -- hello Paddy and Fatwa! I wonder if with Morris Dees out of the way, the SPLC will now take on the poor as clients and help them out -- that Brenda story always makes me laugh.
Hi, Paddy and Sven!
…that Brenda story always makes me laugh.
She still harbors a bit of a grudge. (Which I respect, given how much animus I retain toward a few folks and institutions.) 👿
Here’s hoping all goes well with your eyes, Mac. I’ve been having trouble in that area as well. Last year I was working at my BiL’s house cleaning out the garage, got some grit in my right eye that scratched the cornea -- 4 months later and it still hasn’t healed. I’m thinking surgery in a few months to correct it. For the most part it doesn’t bother me, but at times when I’m sleeping, it apparently scabs over and the scab attaches to the inside of the eyelid and when I open my eye….riiiiiiiip. Hurts like hell, but it’s weird type of pain -- feels like there’s something the size of marble stuck in the eye socket.
Ouch! No thank you!
Rain in the forecast again. Darn Jooooooos -- don’t know when to stop.
I read yesterday that the recent warm weather has increased the flow into the Oroville dam, which looks like it is having the same spillway problems that it had in 2017.
Not to worry -- Gov. Gavin is surely on top of it.
On top of the Oroville dam -- I like it!
That loudmouth Somali congresswoman Ilhan Omar from Minneapolis -- I wonder if any intrepid reporter will ask her about police officer Mohammad Noor killing Justine Damond in 2017. Be curious to hear her take on that shooting cuz if the races were reversed, she’d probably be nonstop about the racist police department.
Apparently there was a “training session” attended by Muslim and Jewish members of Congress, along with a few of the freshman class to address Antisemitism. The training was conducted by a Progressive Jewish organization and included a joke that ended with the punch line “because air is free”. If that incident isn’t widely reported, you know no one is going to ask Omar about Noor.
America in the 21st century -- our rulers actually need a class on anti-Semitism. We are so f**cked.
Saw her at the Palomino back in the 80’s -- she’ll be 70 this year and still kicking it.
The training was conducted by a Progressive Jewish organization and included a joke that ended with the punch line “because air is free”.
Hoo boy…whoever told that joke under those circumstances is a self-gassing Jew.
Too bad that individual -- along with Omar and Tlaib -- can’t have an encounter with Donny Donowitz from “Inglorious Basterds”.
I thought you’d appreciate the absolute tastelessness and tone-deafness of that “joke” in that setting. Apparently a non-Jewish congress-critter attending the event questioned the appropriateness of what was said and was told something to the effect of “we have to be able to approach these discussions with humor”.
Sorry, but even a double face-palm doesn’t do it.
I have to wonder, if a tasteless joke was made about Mohammad, would they “…approach these discussions with humor”?
Just ask those, erm, former Charlie Hebdo staffers.
