Dear Mask-less jackwit at Costco: Wondering who reported you to the manager

and made you so mad?

That was me. I am your freaking Huckleberry, you sorry assed son of a bitch with the manners of a rotten persimmon on a hot day.

I am OVER these assholes. Over them. We can't start school, have Christmas--- we can't put our vacation rental on the market, and are going to miss out on a shit ton of money.

I am sick of them- their dumbfuck conspiracy theories-- and their attempt with a goddamned washed up, bankrupt, failed reality show host to hijack the nation.

He just almost conceded

Did anyone else hear that?

My administration will not go into a lockdown; who knows what the next one will do?

He stumbled on the words, smiled, and said, "who knows what is going to happen?"

He knows. It's over.

Can someone help me post a tweet? Don Trump, Jr.:

That disgusting person tweeted this at 8:06 last night in response to Bloomberg's tweet. I found it because I accidentally clicked on that vapid Ivanka's tweet with pictures of herself and veterans. I think Don Jr. is either drinking again, or on coke.

Hahahahahahah. Yea the past 4 years totally weren’t exactly that?!? You people are f-ing clowns.

For perhaps the first time in American history, a coordinated effort to taint or overturn a presidential election may be underway https://trib.al/rMxYlDj

A new social media platform that has the potential to be damaging:


I signed up for it because I am a librarian, and try to stay up on social media/ semantic web platforms. It is billed as a non-partisan, free speech platform. Right now, I don't like the user interface, but that could be because I am in my late fifties, and do have technostress over new platforms. I have not played around with it.

However, upon signing up, the first thing I encountered was lists of folks to follow. ALL of them that I encountered in the first few pages, bar none, were right wing.

This looks very much like a great platform for the Qanon followers to land, and congregate. It "feels" less "icky" than shady Qanon websites- and seems to be designed to appeal to disgruntled Facebook users.

I am seriously considering getting some of my librarian friends together and attempting to lead classes there on "how to recognize fake news," "US government," and "US history."

I don't know yet- I would need a pretty big group of volunteers. Also, if you do sign up, be aware that it does not look secure in terms of hiding your identity.

Is Ghoulianee working pro-bono? The orange grifter is begging for money

to pay his legal fees already.

I hope Trump tweets some seriously nutty stuff over the next

six weeks. And I hope Mitch and that little twit down in FL (Gaetz-- I can't stand him so badly that I can't remember his name) sit right behind him and tweet their version of "Atta boy!!"

I hope Don Jr. and his weird girlfriend get more outrageous.

There are 2 Senate seats up for grabs in Georgia--- and voters down there are showing that a good number of them are sick of Republican shenanigans.

The whackier this circus side show becomes, the better.

I just feel exhausted. NC here-

We live in an extremely blue town-- kind of a "blue corridor" if you will, that extends down to Chapel Hill.

That said- we have a very tiny place up in the mountains. We go up every couple of weeks, and are always astounded by the Trump signs on the poorest looking places: houses that are in desperate need of rehab, very old mobile homes that look like they are falling apart, with bed sheets for curtains. We always pass lots of little old battered pickups, and cars with the paint half off that have Trump stickers on the bumpers.

This is no joke- these people are barely getting by on government assistance, and the use of food pantries. Yet, somehow a con man convinced them that God wanted them to vote "Republican." It's about abortion, guns, gays, and racism for these people.

Do they not understand that if we lose, they will damn near starve? They can go out and shoot all the squirrels, raccoons, deer and possum they can-- but, that "country boy will survive" shit isn't going to cut it anymore. Scurvy and Covid will start taking their tolls soon enough.

Just read a great name for Trump cult members on Facebook


I have never seen that one before- it was a comment in our local paper about that stupid rally in Gastonia, NC.

President Obama sounds so much like Bill Clinton

in the early nineties...

I miss them both so much-

Oh lord, I hope this is Franklin Graham

Prescription sleep aids can have some wicked side effects, including somnambulism, the medical term for sleepwalking. That's the explanation given for why a man identified only as a "well-known pastor from North Carolina" urinated on Alicia Beverly on a Detroit-bound flight from Las Vegas Monday night.
