Tool kit?

Michigan's new Sodomy Squads will need to be kitted with specialized tools. Their task will require an awkward expertise as well as a certain, shall we say, delicacy. Perhaps we could help them with the shopping list. I'll start:

Please feel free to add your own suggestions.

All keyed up

In my neighborhood Democrats are an unwelcome species. We are routinely vilified and shoulder frequent blame for everything from bad weather to ISIS, and an Obama t-shirt is construed to be a target for rocks. Even knowing all that, a couple of years ago it was disappointing but not at all surprising when my car got keyed right after I’d applied some new bumper stickers. I reported the vandalism with no expectation that anything would be done, but I wanted it on the record. In the main, the shrugging response was along the lines of “Well, what did you expect?”, very much in the same vein as “She got what she deserved wearing that outfit.”

Thinking about all that and reading some of the comments that are currently posted online, I’m just grateful that cars aren’t driven on the cyber highway.

Is anyone watching the Colbert special?

Post-game show tossed it over to him, but Denver television isn't showing it.

Paid speeches...

NEWSFLASH: Hillary Clinton did NOT invent paid speeches. Shocking, yes, but there you go. Her fees might be higher than other female speakers, but they’re lower than what many male speakers are paid.

Anyway, there are many reasons why businesses and organizations and universities pay those fees: to get publicity, to enhance credibility, to gain knowledge, for entertainment, etc. For example, Donald Trump gets $1.5million per speaking engagement at “how to get rich” seminars; it's understood that they pay the fee to garner a bit of his expertise, not to secure his obedience to their agendas.

But, according to the highly suggestive OMG conspiracies making the rounds, Hillary Clinton is apparently paid only in exchange for services rendered, a rather snide and cynical way of suggesting transaction in the world’s oldest profession. Wow. And disgustingly disappointing in Democratic party conversation.
