We all need to be like Luke Skywalker at the end of Star Wars IV.

The ONLY thing that matters at this point is voting, and bringing other like-minded people to the polls to vote--particularly if they've never voted before.

In those final moments in the Death Star trench in Star Wars, Luke Skywalker, to the shock of all of his colleagues, switches off his targeting computer. It is a distraction. The Force is with him, and he has only one single, focused goal in mind: put two proton torpedoes into that ray-shielded two-meter-wide thermal exhaust port located below the main port. NOTHING else in the galaxy matters. NOTHING else needs to be thought of, talked about, argued, or done.

My wife and I succeeded in getting three lifelong Republicans we know to vote in this election for Dems. One of them is voting for Beto down in TX. She never really liked Cruz, but she has always voted for him just "because". Well, not anymore.

If you have to take a break from the news for a while, do it. If you need to take a break from social media or even this website for a few days, do it. Just get out there and get the job done, The Force is with us all. Feel it.

Did anyone else get that as a text just now?

With all the evil Dems blocking Republican SC nominees...

Even going so far as to bring out lying "crisis actors" spinning outlandish fake stories of sexual assault to try to discredit them, under penalty of perjury...

Then how the fuck did Neil Gorsuch seem to skate through to confirmation? I don't recall any ribald tales of drunken debauchery or gambling addiction involving that guy. Doesn't that seem a little strange?

How come I don't hear anyone in the media asking Lindsey Graham about this whenever he spews his bullshit?

The most telling thing to me RE: Avenatti...

Is that, despite Der Pilzschwanz's ranting and raving and fussing and fuming and whining and insulting of everyone on Earth who he feels has wronged (or merely exposed) him, he has avoided Avenatti like the PLAGUE. He is dead silent on the subject. No cute nicknames or monikers, no "unfair" or "incredibly dishonest"... Just nothing.

It's as if, like Batman, Avenatti strikes true fear into the cockles of his LDL-congested heart, and I love that.

Kavanaugh is the Captain Lincoln Sternn of jurists.

For those too young/old to remember Captain Sternn, he was a character from the movie Heavy Metal (created by comics legend Bernie Wrightson) who, although appearing upright and straightlaced, was actually ridiculously amoral and evil--doing things like selling dope dressed as a nun and running a preschooler prostitute ring.

How much longer can the GOP try to force this depraved asshole on to the highest court in the United States? It has absolutely reached the point of twisted absurdity. NO ONE can possibly pretend that anything happening now is anywhere near normal.

"A MAJOR terrorist plot is scheduled in the next week!"

"But don't worry! My people are on it. They have identified the threat, and they will keep you SAFE! In the meantime, be careful and watchful. Report anything suspicious!"

THIS is why the "Presidential Emergency Messages" scare the hell out of all of us who have been paying attention to the crazy man in the Oval Office.

In 30 years, when this country is a wasteland...

A radioactive, sun-scorched desert...

There will be people crawling on scabbed hands and knees through the shattered concrete and twisted, rusted steel of the ruins. They will be searching feebly for the last few remaining cans of tomato soup, Spam, and the last few gallons of gasoline in what used to be the continental United States.

And through cracked, bleeding lips, these people will be muttering repeatedly... very softly...

"lock her up... lock her up..."

Wow, the jokes are writing themselves today.

I've never literally laughed out loud at more posts by more DUers than I have today.

It feels good. Keep up the good work, folks.

Remember that there is nothing, NOTHING that pisses the Fanta Menace off more than being laughed at. It's the main reason for his eternal blood hatred for all things Barack Obama--because Obama gently ribbed him at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

683 Chipotle patrons say they became ill after eating at Ohio restaurant

Source: NY Daily News

Hundreds of people who dined at an Ohio Chipotle restaurant say they’ve become sick after eating food there, according to the Delaware General Health District.

At least 683 patrons at Chipotle’s Powell location reported feeling ill, however the culprit of the illness remains unknown.

Stool-sample tests for Salmonella, E.Coli, Shigella and norovirus came back negative, according to the Ohio Department of Health.

The possible food-borne illness caused customers to experience symptoms including vomiting, nausea, headaches and abdominal pain that lasted for a few days. It appears to have affected patrons who visited the Mexican eatery between July 26 and July 29.

Let us remember Saman Gunan.

The Thai rescue diver who sacrificed his life laying out the initial oxygen tanks for that incredible rescue operation. The Heroes in Valhalla raise their cups to you, sir.
