MOAB .......... has a religious connection

Mother of All Bombs ...........
Lot's two daughters got him drunk and then had sex with him
the oldest daughter had a baby and named him Moab

Here is another United saga

http://www.latimes.com/business/lazarus/la-fi-lazarus-united-low-priority-passenger-20170412-story,amp.html

t’s hard to find examples of worse decision-making and customer treatment than United Airlines having a passenger dragged from an overbooked plane. But United’s shabby treatment of Geoff Fearns, including a threat to place him in handcuffs, comes close.

Fearns, 59, is president of TriPacific Capital Advisors, an Irvine investment firm that handles more than half a billion dollars in real estate holdings on behalf of public pension funds. He had to fly to Hawaii last week for a business conference.

Fearns requested a full refund for his flight from Kauai and asked for United to make a $25,000 donation to the charity of his choice. This is how rich guys do it.

He received an email back from a United “corporate customer care specialist” apologizing that Fearns apparently had an unpleasant experience. But, no, forget about a refund.

Trump set his lawyers on a teenage girl who made a fun internet game about him and kittens

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-set-lawyers-teenage-girl-115155000.html


Hell hath no fury like a thin-skinned American president. Donald Trump has reportedly sent in the lawyers on a 17-year-old girl who made a fun web game about him.

Kitten Feed was coded by a teenager from San Francisco called Lucy as a little side project just for fun.

The site was originally called Trump Scratch — until the president's lawyers sent Lucy a cease and desist letter trying to protect his brand because he's "a well-known businessman".

"I was going to just let this go, but I think it's, pardon my French, f*****g outrageous that the president of the United States has his team scouring the internet for sites like mine to send out cease and desists and legal action claims if we don't shut down," she told the Observer, which first reported the story.


Other Trump games at the site

It seems that trump lawyers still think he is a business man ......... so much for keeping his fingers out of his businesses

'Don't Say Gay' Christian Values GOP Lawmaker Accused of Affair With Employee Who's Also His Patient

Who's Also His Cousin

http://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/davidbadash/_don_t_say_gay_christian_values_gop_lawmaker_accused_of_affair_with_employee_who_s_also_his_patient_who_s_also_his_cousin


Do you remember Tennessee state Senator Joey Hensley? He's the guy who won the seat of wildcard lawmaker Stacey Campfield, an infamous advocate for a "Don't Say Gay" bill that would ban schools, administrators, and even students from discussing anything related to homosexuality. Senator Hensley, who has been a lawmaker for 15 years and happens to also be a medical doctor, took up the mantle of pushing the ugly legislation. He also pushed a Tennessee bill that would allow discrimination against LGBT people and atheists by mental health students, allowing them to refuse to treat people, as part of their required training, if they expressed a deeply held religious belief.

~snip~

Hensley still claims to be a good Christian conservative. He thinks "Modern Family" shouldn't be allowed on TV, but supports a pro-"MILO" bill created to ensure conservatives are allowed to speak on college campuses. It's named for that former Breitbart editor who advocated for underage sex between older men and teenaged boys as young as 13.

~snip~

Senator Hensley is a mighty Christian warrior fighting against gay children in schools, and fighting against gay children and adults who want counseling. And now he's even fighting to prevent same-sex couples from having children, by sponsoring legislation "from the Tennessee Family Action Council that would make children created using donor sperm illegitimate — an attempt to make it harder for gay and lesbian parents to establish paternity."

~snip~

"It is a clear violation of the American Medical Association’s code of ethics — to which the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners subscribes — for a doctor to become romantically involved with a patient," Nashville Scene notes. "It is also in violation of the state board’s guidelines to regularly treat immediate family members or prescribe them drugs."


I am truly in love with republican family values ---- also married and divorced 4 times

I think Trump has tapped my phone!! .............

Has this happened to anyone else??

Trump and Pinocchio

Trump and Pinocchio


When Donald was just a little boy his father read Pinocchio to him. This story stuck with him to this very day. Donald was born with small parts if you know what I mean. He figured if it worked for Pinocchio it might and should work for other parts.

This is why The Donald lies so much. He started lying and he found that the only things that grew were his racism and his bigotry. We know that once Donald gets something in his head he never lets go. So he just spent his life lying about everything hoping he could get his hands and man parts to grow. Never worked to this day.

As his lying grew, his racism, bigotry, his EGO grew along with his bank account. His hair grew. As we get to the moral of this Trump story we find if you lie some things grow and others either stay the same or decrease in size. The final moral: When you lie so much you lose your morals and sanity. Your man parts will not grow, as Trump would have seen for himself if he could have seen past his fat belly, that was a true fact.

Trump History Month Speech Revised

I downloaded Trump’s Black History Month Transcript and then went through it to eliminate the garbage. Not much left. I left anything that was remotely Black History.
Dragon

February is Black History Month. This morning, Donald Trump held a White House event to mark the occasion. Below is an accurate transcript of his remarks.
[Daniel Dale of the Toronto Star published the first transcript of this on Twitter; we re-transcribed the president’s remarks from video for this transcript.]
Well, the election, it came out really well. Next time we’ll triple the number or quadruple it. We want to get it over 51, right? At least 51.
Well this is Black History Month, so this is our little breakfast, our little get-together. Hi Lynn, how are you? Just a few notes. During this month, we honor the tremendous history of African-Americans throughout our country. Throughout the world, if you really think about it, right? And their story is one of unimaginable sacrifice, hard work, and faith in America. I’ve gotten a real glimpse—during the campaign, I’d go around with Ben to a lot of different places I wasn’t so familiar with. They’re incredible people. And I want to thank Ben Carson, who’s gonna be heading up HUD. That’s a big job. That’s a job that’s not only housing, but it’s mind and spirit. Right, Ben? And you understand, nobody’s gonna be better than Ben.
Last month, we celebrated the life of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., whose incredible example is unique in American history. You read all about Dr. Martin Luther King a week ago when somebody said I took the statue out of my office. It turned out that that was fake news. Fake news. The statue is cherished, it’s one of the favorite things in the—and we have some good ones. We have Lincoln, and we have Jefferson, and we have Dr. Martin Luther King. But they said the statue, the bust of Martin Luther King, was taken out of the office. And it was never even touched. So I think it was a disgrace, but that’s the way the press is. Very unfortunate.
I am very proud now that we have a museum on the National Mall where people can learn about Reverend King, so many other things. Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I noticed. Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and millions more black Americans who made America what it is today. Big impact.
I’m proud to honor this heritage and will be honoring it more and more. The folks at the table in almost all cases have been great friends and supporters. Darrell—I met Darrell when he was defending me on television. And the people that were on the other side of the argument didn’t have a chance, right? And Paris has done an amazing job in a very hostile CNN community. He’s all by himself. You’ll have seven people, and Paris. And I’ll take Paris over the seven. But I don’t watch CNN, so I don’t get to see you as much as I used to. I don’t like watching fake news. But Fox has treated me very nice. Wherever Fox is, thank you.
We’re gonna need better schools and we need them soon. We need more jobs, we need better wages, a lot better wages. We’re gonna work very hard on the inner city. Ben is gonna be doing that, big league. That’s one of the big things that you’re gonna be looking at. We need safer communities and we’re going to do that with law enforcement. We’re gonna make it safe. We’re gonna make it much better than it is right now. Right now it’s terrible, and I saw you talking about it the other night, Paris, on something else that was really—you did a fantastic job the other night on a very unrelated show.
I’m ready to do my part, and I will say this: We’re gonna work together. This is a great group, this is a group that’s been so special to me. You really helped me a lot. If you remember I wasn’t going to do well with the African-American community, and after they heard me speaking and talking about the inner city and lots of other things, we ended up getting—and I won’t go into details—but we ended up getting substantially more than other candidates who had run in the past years. And now we’re gonna take that to new levels. I want to thank my television star over here—Omarosa’s actually a very nice person, nobody knows that. I don’t want to destroy her reputation but she’s a very good person, and she’s been helpful right from the beginning of the campaign, and I appreciate it. I really do. Very special.
So I want to thank everybody for being here.

This is what is left.
