Is anyone else watching the Wilbur Ross hearing?

It's on C-SPAN 3 and is about the 2020 census and the citizenship question, but questions are touching on timelines, political pressure, and intent in including the question.

Ross is the slowest talker I've ever heard. He also seems to be hard of hearing and has trouble understanding simple questions.

Am I the only one who does not remember my SAT score?

All I remember is that it wasn't perfect, but it was respectable. I got into Western Michigan University and the University of Michigan with no trouble.

Same with the ACT.

Has anyone posted their resume on Indeed or Monster?

I've been thinking about putting a resume on Indeed. I would start a new email account just for this and not include my phone number.

Has anyone put their resume on a job board? What has been your experience?

Jon Hotchkiss Be Less Stupid - There's NO Border Wall

Hotchkiss went to San Diego to check on chumpy's claims. This is what he found (or, rather, did not find):



Social Experiment with Cats and a Trump Doll

I know it's fake. It's funny anyway.



I Think I Have the Flu

Body aches, sore throat with a touch of laryngitis, and generally feeling yucky.

Last night, I went to bed at about 8pm. My memory is hazy about what happened when, but I was shivering uncontrollably for a while. I got up to use the bathroom and I was nauseated. I can't remember the last time I was nauseated - it just doesn't happen. Thankfully I didn't throw up (I hate throwing up).

In the half awake time before I got out of bed, I was so warm that I was sweating. It was great after the shivering.

For now, it seems like the fever is broken. I feel better this morning. Just a little run down and the laryngitis is sticking around.

Has anyone else got the flu this season?


A Couple Songs about the Horrror and Sadness of WW I








What Songs Do You Just Have to Sing Along With?

I'm more of a backup singer. I just can't resist doing the backup to Don't Be Cruel (bop! bop! bop-bop!) and Only the Lonely (dum dum dum dum-be-do-wa). And, of course, Lily Allen's Fuck You.

What's your favorite jam?


It Has Been One Year



Sow the Wind, Reap the Whirlwind

The following is my opinion entirely. I have not heard or read a single thing about what I am going to post. In fact, I wonder why nobody else has thought of it.

I'm sorry this is so long.


Brett Kavanaugh's opening statement was long and emotional. What with all the sniffs, sniveling, shouts, and whines, the words he used were even more telling. In a way, he described his duties in all his positions as a political operative.


He admits that his troubles lasted ten days. Huh. The Clintons withstood rethug attacks for 26 years and counting yet they are able to laugh, take walks, meet with people, and give interviews to the media with their heads held high. Their reputations and good name has been dragged through the muc by vicious and false accusations (my favorite one is that they killed a couple of teenagers with a train). The current so-called president keeps calling Secretary Clinton "crooked" and "corrupt" without a shred of evidence.

He claims that any and all type of investigation will clear him because the six he has had already had have done so. Except for minor sexual matters, the Clintons were also cleared but they have endured more than FBI investigations. They have been subjected to numerous investigations by the executive and legislative branches - often multiple investigations on the exact same matters. Since there were no charges brought except as related to Paula Jones and lying to Congress, it looks like we can reasonable say that they have been entirely exonerated.

Kavanaugh says that the whole two week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit. He also said that they were well-funded and coordinated. Referring to Kavanaugh's job in the late 1990s, he should know all about calculated and orchestrated hit. Why was it okay when he did it?

He was right about one thing, though:
This grotesque and coordinated character assassination will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions, from serving our country.

If one looks at today's rethug party, the swamp creatures won't hesitate to slither in and fill the void.


Now he complains about sowing the wind. He did that in the late 1990s. Now, two decades later, he is reaping his own whirlwind. This whole confirmation process is not about the 2016 election. It is about his partisan hate, wasted time to destroy good people (this includes more than just the Clintons), and the lies he told, all to put his side in power and keep it with lies and corruption.

Yeah, Brett. What goes around is coming back around with a vengeance. I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm enjoying every second of his outrage at having to go through a small taste of what he did to others.
