Great Trump slam on a readerboard today

There is a self-storage place along I-90 in Spokane that has a readerboard along the freeway with various cute sayings on it. Today's:


Supreme Court hypothetical time

The situation: It's January 21, 2017. We have a Democratic president, a Democratic House, 65 seats in the Senate and eight Supreme Court justices, thanks to Mitch McConnell's strange theory that the National Rifle Association has to sign off on any and all Supreme Court picks.

At this time we can pick whoever the hell we want to replace Fat Tony Scalia. Who should it be?

Ed Force One damaged in ramp incident


Iron Maiden's tour plane (a Boeing 747) was on the ground in Santiago, Chile, being towed to the refueling point. A connecting pin fell out of the steering mechanism connecting the tug to the plane, without the knowledge of the ground crew. When the tug operators attempted to turn, the plane kept going straight...fucking up two engines to the point they probably need replaced, damaging the undercarriage and injuring the two tug operators. Fortunately, the operators are on their way to a full recovery and the plane is fixable.

If anyone wants a Holga, get it quick - they will soon be history


Holgas, the hip little film camera of the "art photography" movement, are made in China. Or WERE, anyway. The factory that made them has closed, so if you want a really cheap 120 camera (that you have to wrap in duct tape to make lightproof, but anyway...) go get one now before they're all gone.

Well...you were wondering...


Hillary takes all three NC military counties

There are three military bases in North Carolina. All are highly dependent on the military for their civilian economies.

Ft. Bragg is in Cumberland County.
Hillary 66%, Bernie 28%

Seymour Johnson Air Force Base is in Wayne County.
Hillary 63%, Bernie 29%

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is in Onslow County.
Hillary 60%, Bernie 33%

8:41 pm: FL, NC, OH all called for Hillary!


States in two time zones need split primary times

There are fourteen states in this fix: Alaska, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, both Dakotas, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas. As it now stands, if...oh, Florida...closes its polls at 7 pm, the western counties that are in Central time are voting an hour after the Eastern time counties close their polls...and if the Eastern time counties announce their results right after the polls close (such as if Marco Rubio sweeps that end of the state) it effectively disenfranchises the counties whose polls are still open.

There's an easy fix: open and close the Eastern counties a clock hour after the Central counties, so that all polls open and close at the same Greenwich mean time.

NC investigators considering charging Trump with inciting a riot

This is YOOGE!


Investigators in North Carolina are examining whether to charge Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump with inciting a riot after one of his supporters hit a protester at a rally Thursday.

Ronnie Mitchell, a lawyer for the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office, said in a statement that the office is looking into "the potential of whether there was conduct on the part of Mr. Trump or the Trump campaign which rose to the level of inciting a riot."

Also under consideration are additional charges for John McGraw, the Trump supporter who was caught on video punching the protester as he was being escorted out of the rally by police. The conduct of sheriff's deputies, who faced criticism when they did not immediately arrest McGraw but instead detained the protester, is also being examined, according to Mitchell.

Two weeks in the Cumberland County Jail, which is in the best part of Fayettenam , would do ol' Donnie up there a hell of a lot of good.

Hillary knows the trick to dealing with the Trumps of the world the GOP doesn't

You just let 'em come right up to the edge of a bottomless pit with their lies and their insults, and let them think they're winning...

and then you give them a good hard shove and enjoy the screaming as they go down, down, down.
