Visual for our Trolls: THIS is American Socialism

A breather in the struggle of the Primaries - seen somewhere - enjoyed by me

Was busy shopping at Amazon today - being snowed in and all. (:)) Did you guys see Doonesbury?

Trump’s Plan to Randomly Shoot People Lacks Details, Random Shooters Say / Borowitz/ satire

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (The Borowitz Report)—One day after Donald Trump claimed that he could shoot people on New York’s Fifth Avenue and not lose support, a leading member of the random-shooting community complained that the billionaire’s random-shooting plan lacks specifics.

Harland Dorrinson, who heads the largest association of random shooters in the nation, said that Trump’s Fifth Avenue plan “lacked many of the key ingredients necessary for a credible random shooting.”

"There’s no weapons cache, no twisted manifesto to be found later by authorities,” Dorrinson said. “To anyone in the random-shooting world, Trump’s plan fails on so many levels.”
Moreover, he said, Trump has not put in the many years of solitary seething that most random shooters deem mandatory.

“Before you do a random shooting, you’re supposed to be quiet and keep to yourself,” he said. “Trump is always shouting at thousands of people.”

Dorrinson added that although many random shooters have been in the Trump camp thus far, the candidate’s vague random-shooting “plan” is now giving them pause.

“Donald Trump made it sound like a random shooting is just the easiest thing in the world,” he said. “At the end of the day, random shooters find that hurtful.”


It’s Winter for sure - for the moment anyway. Walked around the neighborhood - took a few pictures

It’s not too cold, we have snow and kept our power. The wind is whistling fiercely, but other than that nothing prevented me from taking a 20 min. walk with my camera. My neighborhood is so diverse - wonderfully - you can find anybody or anything, the smallest most unassuming house in one of the pictures is mine, and within less than 5 min walk lives Melissa Harris-Perry. I kid you not. She has a job at a local University.

Michael R. Bloomberg, sensing an opening, explores plans for an independent presidential bid
Saturday, January 23, 2016 9:51 AM EST

Galled by Donald J. Trump’s dominance of the Republican field, and troubled by Hillary Clinton’s stumbles and the rise of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont on the Democratic side, Michael R. Bloomberg has instructed advisers to draw up plans for an independent campaign in this year’s presidential race.
Mr. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, has in the past contemplated running for the White House on a third-party ticket, but always concluded he could not win. A confluence of unlikely events in the 2016 election, however, has given new impetus to his presidential aspirations.

Quoting Rachel Maddow talking about Jeb: "More Money than Support..."

She just reported that Jeb, who has outspent the combined spending by Trump and Cruz by 11 times, honest to God sent Fedex Overnight packages into New Hampshire households over the weekend.
They contained
full fledged video PLAYERS queued up to play a video advertising Jeb Bush and his candidacy for President.

She then went on to say that maybe the people would have preferred to get a set of snow tires, or a bottle of booze.
And then she laughed her inimitable laugh, if you briefly close your eyes I bet you can hear it even over your own.

Honestly, just between you and me, that is what money heavy and substance light desperation looks like.

Donald Trump Op-Ed by 13-Year-Old 8th Grade Student Matthew Wieseltier

13-year-old 8th grade student and Huff Post blogger Matthew Wieseltier does not want to grow up in Donald Trump's America
he is a bright insightful and eloquent young man.


I was cooking and had to leave the kitchen

Sarah's godawful voice, and her more than godawful folksy stupidity made me want to throw up before I could even eat.
I had to get away to gather my wits and calm my stomach lining. The Germans have an expression "standing like an oil slicked buddha" (herumstehen wie ein Ölgötze) and that is what the Donald reminds me of standing beside her and the smirky slick weirdness of his expression as she does her antics shows me clearly that he knows she is full of it and simply wants to make herself important again.

What have we come to? I would not have believed this scenario even a year ago.
The Republican party is on a path to not only self destruct, but to look at it's remnants and debris from the bottom up.

My favorite dog video ever - well - so far, anyway
