Just in case you have missed The Ferrets website...

his latest posts are just the anti-dote we need.


Short excerpt:
Nikki Haley got mad at the Grammys for being political rather than just performing for her like trained monkeys. Nobody tell her about Bob Dylan.

Ultimately, Haley’s just pissy because Hillary Clinton’s cameo elicited a cheer her boss couldn’t get outside a Klan rally. At some point, these fucks need to come to terms with the fact that the majority of Americans despise them, and yeah, we got all the artists in the divorce. You’re probably sick of Kid Rock’s B-sides and Scott Baio’s one man show performing all the roles in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, but you should’ve thought of that before signing on to serve these fundamentally indecent fucksticks.

Latest Randy Rainbor is out!




For those not around for Watergate, Trump crimes are mirroring exactly what it was like back then.

At first a few news stories, indicating something that made most aware people go "hmmmm"..the DNC break-in , kinda of strange, wonder why, what was THAT all about, back page of the newspaper, passing comment on the tv news.

followed a few days later by "gee, one of the burglars was ex-CIA, etc"
double Hmmmm.

Then we heard "WH denying" stories, which gradually got bigger and bigger and connected more dots.

and suddenly, dots came together and led to the WH, which led to WH denials, and then reports of trying to cover-up the burglary connections, then snowballed so that the story was staying on the front page.

and THEN....special prosecutor, followed by Nixon firing him, and BOOM! where we are now with Trump.
totally predictable behavior.

The difference was reporting was a bit slower, compared to Internet. So actions, followed by reactions, took a bit longer.
We had basically 3 tv news broadcasts, normally at 6 pm....ABC, NBC, CBS ( Cronkite, most people watched him) and newspapers usually came in am and in pm. That was it.
It did reach the "we interrupt this broadcast to bring you this important update"..that would happen during the day but networks were loath to break into evening programing..........JFK's murder was extremely rare coverage at the time.

When you think that Mueller was appointed only 9 months ago......just 4 months after the inauguration....we are moving at light speed.
It took years to get Nixon, and that included his re-election.



Thanks to Trump, we are now a kakistocracy,


"government by the least qualified people or worse people."

Let's beat the rush by making the casting list for the movie now. You know which movie,,,,

Caveats:
1. No short actors like Cruise playing tall roles, ( Reacher fans know what I mean)
altho I have no idea who can play the giant Comey. but...
Woody Harrelson in there somewhere, cause I like him.

2. Not a comedy movie, altho irony and sarcasm can be allowed.

3. Has to be written by Aaron Sorkin or equally good writers. ( Sorkin did West Wing...and Molly Bloom)

Ok...pen your dream cast.....

Trump was angry that McCabe's wife was a dem, asked who McCabe voted for.

Unbelievable.

Trump, according to several current and former U.S. officials, asked Andrew McCabe a pointed question: Whom did he vote for in the 2016 election?

Trump, the officials said, also vented his anger at McCabe over the several hundred thousand dollars in donations his wife, a Democrat, received for her failed 2015 Virginia state Senate bid from a political action committee controlled by a close friend of Hillary Clinton.

Legal question: Can a former Pres. run for VP.?

Thinking of Biden's possible run for Pres.
with you know who running as VP.
Wouldn't that be cool?

Mr. dixie and I are having a difference of opinion, so I said...DU can help figure it out.

He says his brother's wife is MY sister in law
and I say since she is not related to ME by blood, she is not, unless I speak of her as a sister-in-law "by marriage", as I was taught to.
At least I seem to remember being taught to, back in the Ice Age. Now I am not too sure.

this has nothing to do with any family disagreements, we have none..just "technically" an issue.
We usually go to the mat over nit picking things like this.

Y'all need to know this man.

This is Tom Taylor.

He says:
I'm a Democrat running in Utah's 4th District against Mia Love. I have a Ph.D in robotics and will craft laws based on evidence.


He also says, to his newborn daughter:

Colette, You were born on the #WomensMarch2018 when millions declared they will stand up against a president that openly brags about assaulting women. Things are scary now, but we're shaping the future to make the world a better place for you. Welcome to #TheResistance.
