Biden's "record player" remark in the debates

s being roundly mocked. The last laugh, however, may belong to the former VP. Vinyl sales are outstripping CDs.

The joke on us?

Heard on the news this morning a reference to the birtherism joke that Obama made at Trump's expense at White House Correspondent's dinner in 2011. (Remember Trump's face?) Given how petty and thin-skinned Trump is, I wonder how many of the horrors visited on us since 2016 were spawned by that joke.

Trump Begins Long Golf Weekend, Bringing Taxpayers' Tab To $108 Million

Source: Huff Po

President Donald Trump began a three-day golf weekend Friday, making his 16th visit to his New Jersey golf club since entering office and pushing his total travel and security costs for his hobby to $108.1 million.

The presidentís Marine One helicopter touched down at Trump National Golf Club, Bedminster around 12:45 p.m. Trump is not scheduled to return to the White House until Sunday, giving him three more golf days at his resort 45 miles west of New York City.

Heading into Friday, Trump had spent 60 days at his course in Northern Virginia, 59 days at Bedminster and 57 days at his resort in West Palm Beach. He has also visited his courses in Los Angeles; Doral, Florida; Jupiter, Florida; Scotland and Ireland ― all on the taxpayer dime.

Trumpís use of Air Force One, even the smaller version he used Friday, and Marine Corps helicopters both in Washington and New Jersey drive up costs to taxpayers, and the long weekend will add at least $1.1 million to his grand total, according to a HuffPost analysis.

The glory of war

On my last trip to D.C., I was struck by how much this city is a monument to war. Everywhere you go there is a statue, plague, wall, memorial, or museum to the victorious dead. There's even a museum to the permanently disabled and of course, our national cemetery. What might a visiting alien think of what we've valued in our history?And Trump getting his tanks makes me especially sad. There's just something wrong with the way we celebrate our freedom.

Continuing the theme of I fucking hate Chuck Todd . . .


Sunday he said that Democrats are becoming too liberal.

"NBC host Chuck Todd suggested on Sunday that Democrats are abandoning their base by supporting "far left" policies like Medicare for All, which 70 percent of Americans support."

Carter says Trump didn't really win

I don't believe it either. Never did. Never will.

I fucking HATE Chuck Todd

His entire show has been curating Biden bashers and AOC bashers. He does nothing but stir muck pots.

In the spirit of Gay Pride Month,

I'd like to say how proud I am of our gay and lesbian family members and how SUPER proud I am to be part of a family that embraces them.

What god looks like

Interesting study on what American Christians think God looks like. I'm shocked at the notion of rainbow-colored flip flops. Everyone knows God wears Birkenstocks!

Any book collectors out there?

Yesterday was Walt Whitman's 200th birthday and not coincidentally I suppose I sold on eBay last night a Deathbed Edition of Leaves of Grass that I had forgotten I'd even listed. Today I want it back and am in deep mourning. I know I'd already read it more than once. I know I hadn't touched it in years. But it want to HAVE it, you see, and go through this every time I sell a book I had originally bought for an "investment." Possibly all collectors of any kind are a little sick? But I know I'd never feel this badly if my Kindle died.
